Substance abuse major trigger for serial rapist By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Although an assessment identified Jack Froese as having an antisocial personality, the convicted rapist did well in a year-long program he attended for sex offenders. Linda Hollingshead, a psychiatric nurse with the Clearwater Sex Offender program, run by the federal government in its regional psychiatric centre in Saskatoon, told a hearing to have Froese designated a dangerous offender that the man was at first quiet in group therapy sessions, but later started to participate. Froese pleaded guilty last year to charges of kidnapping and sexual assault after he took a woman from a store on Tranquille

Road on Nov. 25, 2011, drugged and assaulted her over several hours and later released her in the Batchelor Heights area. Froese has a long criminal record of convictions for violent sexual offences and, at the time of the Kamloops assault, had been released just months earlier after spending most of the previous eight years in a federal prison. At the time of his release and return to live with his mother, stepfather, sister and niece, Kamloops Mounties advised the public of his presence in the city and said he had been deemed a high risk to re-offend. Hollingshead said she worked directly with Froese from his arrival in March 2006 to his completion of the program in February 2007.

When defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen asked her if she would be surprised to know Froese was not required to attend substanceabuse programs after his release to Kamloops, Hollingshead replied: “Absolutely. I would be concerned. Drugs are part of his offending.” She told Jensen viewing pornography would be another trigger for Froese and, if it was violent pornography, “it would impact how he was thinking. It’s part of his crime cycle and could lead to him progressing to another offence.” Again in response to a question from Jensen about access to pornography, Hollingshead said she would have serious concerns if she knew he was doing so.

Hollingshead told the court any program a convict agrees to is “not designed to be a panacea. It just gives them tools. “Your program is set up to teach people skills, identify triggers with an idea that, when you go out, you have skills and supports to assist them.” Hollingshead said during interviews with Froese, he acknowledged his crimes to her and took responsibility for them. The major component to his not re-offending, she said, was to stay away from drug use other than prescribed medications for what had been described as attention-deficit disorder. Earlier in the hearing, which is expected to continue for several days, a videotape of a lengthy statement from the Kamloops victim noted that, at some point during the kidnapping and assault, Froese made a phone call and later made her walk down to a corner and ordered her to sit in an area where she could not be seen. The victim said she saw Froese approach someone who had just arrived in a car and believed he was buying drugs from him. The victim is heard on the videotape to say Froese would “shoot himself up” several times during the kidnapping and twice injected something into her. During his trial in 2005, after which he was sentenced to three years in prison for another sexual assault — one that occurred while he was on probation at the time for yet another sexual assault — it was noted Froese had a serious addiction to crystal meth.

Kamloops mom driven to be there for her kids However, the budget doesn’t include replacing the specialized, adapted van she’s been driving By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

C

RYSTLE BOOTH doesn’t remember much about the 2001 accident that changed her life. She knows she was driving her husband, Tom, infant daughter, Mackenzie, and toddler son, Taylor, when she hit a deer. The car rolled, her husband died, her children were unharmed and, 22 months later, Booth left the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver a widow — and a paraplegic. She remembers her homecoming. It was June 25, the day her dad, dealing with the after-effects of a quadruple bypass operation, became ill, went into the hospital and died the next day. “I think sometimes he was just waiting to see me come home,” Booth said. The loss was devastating, but she consoled herself with the fact her father, who often wondered if she would ever leave the rehab centre, lived to see her in his house, holding her children and preparing to live life. That determination came from Booth’s longheld desire to be the kind of mom who volunteers at school fundraisers, who is on

Crystle Booth’s children Taylor (left) and Mackenzie survived the crash that killed their dad and left mom a paraplegic. Booth has stayed as active as she can in her now-teenaged kids’ lives, but two accidents with adapted vans — neither her fault — have left her without the cash she needs to again replace the vehicle. Charities would help if her child was disabled, she says, but she hasn’t yet found one to help her. If you can help Booth in her quest for a newer-model Dodge minivan, email dale@kamloopsthisweek.com.

the sidelines watching her skating and hockeyplaying kids, who braids their hair and who drives them to community celebrations. Also fuelling this drive was the reality it had taken 11 years for Booth and her husband to have Taylor. Mackenzie was another small miracle after all those years Booth had wondered if she would ever be a mom. After the accident, Booth bought a wheelchair-adapted van she used to organize and run

community barbecues and other fundraisers in Valemount, where the family lived at the time. Pulling up in her van, seeing the ramp come out and watching the wheelchair-bound mom head out to join others became commonplace. Booth moved to her hometown of Kamloops two years ago, mainly to provide her daughter, diagnosed with autism, with more educational, therapeutic and social opportunities. The van brought them here. Then, two years ago,

the vehicle was totalled after it was hit by a drunk driver. ICBC wrote it off, giving her $10,000 to replace what was, essentially, irreplaceable. Booth managed to find another van that was adapted for her to use. In February, however, with Mackenzie in the car, Booth hit a pothole, the airbags deployed, the vehicle was damaged and ICBC again wrote it off. Booth stayed involved, with her kids pushing her in her wheelchair to the bus

stop so they could head out to wherever they were going. Sometimes — grocery shopping day, for example — they had to use a cab, racking up about $2,000 in expenses over a three-month period. A HandyDart application was the next step, but it doesn’t work for the mom who wants to show others — and herself — that being paralyzed doesn’t mean life is over. The woman who has already overcome so many hurdles has one

more to vault. Booth has lined up funding to cover the $30,000 required to convert a van for her wheelchair and to install hand-controlled mechanics to drive it. But, she has to buy another van — and, due to the requirements of the funder, it has to be a newer-model Dodge minivan, an estimated $20,000 expense that wasn’t factored into the Booth family budget for 2013. She has asked local charities, service clubs and corporations for

help, noting she can pay part of the cost, but has found those that could provide funding only do so if the child is disabled and the parent needs the vehicle to drive the child. “They can put decals all over it saying they donated it, if they want,” she said of prospective donors. “And I’ll pass out buttons for them whenever they want.” Booth is counting on an income-tax refund submitted in January to help offset any van costs, although she hasn’t yet seen the refund cheque. Friends have tried to organize fundraisers, but that’s easier said than done for those not in the raising-money business and with their own lives to live. Booth is like most people. She doesn’t like asking for help. She bristles when people criticize her for asking her daughter to pick up some groceries or when they chastize her because her daughter has to take the bus to school. But, she remembers waking up in the hospital not knowing what had happened, of learning Tom was dead, of needing to see her kids to know they were all right. “So many people fade into the background when they have this happen,” she said. “I’m not. I’m out there. Yeah, it takes me two hours to get the groceries, but I’m doing it.”

Plan in place to get 2141 running again By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Officials with the Kamloops Heritage Train Society hope to get started soon on repairs to their steam-engine train, known best in the city as the 2141. First, though, they need to meet with the city to present their plan to get the train rolling on the tracks taking people on scenic trips of the area. This year’s planned season of jaunts was cancelled when repairs were ordered for the boiler that keeps the engine chugging, work for which the society didn’t have the money to pay. However, a three-phase plan is in place, fundraising has already topped $20,000 and new board members have been elected to see the project through. Glenn Wideman, soon to be past-president once a new executive is elected — he has stepped down after seven years in that position — said cost of the work could go as high as $400,00. The society has decided to include with boiler repairs replacing more than 200 tubes that are key to the mechanics. New federal rules require tubes be replaced every 15 years; that would be in 2015 for the steam engine but it made more sense to do all the work at once, Wideman said at a recent annual general meeting of members. Similar tube work done on a steam

engine owned by the Kettle Valley Railway cost more than $200,000. Wideman said they are talking with that society to learn from its experiences. The three phases include determining all costs and starting to raise money or gifts in kind, taking all measurements and taking the boiler apart, a process that will

likely take three people about two months to complete, and either having the work done in Kamloops or sending it to a boiler maker in Vancouver or Washington state. Money is a vital issue, with the society now subject of an RCMP investigation sparked by questions from the city about its accounting practices and what appears

to be two instances of $100,000 each being moved out of society bank accounts for several months and then returned. Wideman said then-treasurer Joe Leong invested the money through his company but society books are unclear what actually happened with the money. The RCMP has said the money is not missing but the investigation continues. Acting treasurer Mark McVittie reported to those at the AGM the society is in a deficit position of about $27,000, some of that debt carried forward from earlier years. A separate fundraising account, however, quickly rose to more than $18,000 and, by the end of the AGM, another $3,030 had been added, $2,000 from Brian Kelly, owner of Kelly’s Kaboose, and $1,030 from NorKam secondary Grade 10 student Jordan Popadynetz, who has been selling buttons he created and who held a barbecue at school for the train fund. Members are eager to get into the backshop to start work on the project but are waiting for permission from the city. A $70,000 liability-insurance bill has been paid, said Doug Baleshta, who presented the three-phase plan to members, something the city required. Elected or returned to the board at the AGM were Bill Abley, Brian Kelly, Art Stiles, Tony Strudwick, Ron Rasmussen, McVittie and Baleshta.

North Shore clinic closes Only two walk-in clinics remain open in Kamloops By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Some patients were worried, others stoic and most were appreciative after learning of the reality that greets the North Shore this week with the closing on Saturday, June 15, of the North Shore Treatment Centre. John Thompson, who ran the walk-in medical clinic at Northills Mall for 11 of its 15 years, said the decision to shut it down was difficult, but inevitable. Down to about four regular doctors, it was becoming harder every day to fill shifts, Thompson said. Physicians who could pick up shifts now and then were becoming scarce, mostly due to the increased demands of their own practices. “It was devastating,” Thompson said, “but, at some point, you finally have to admit it.” He is hopeful a medical clinic in the large complex built by Kamloops pharmacist Missagh Manshadi at the corner of Tranquille Road and Wood Street

will help fill the void. Marg Brown, administrator of Royal Inland Hospital, said the closure will have an impact on the emergency department that will have to be monitored. If the number of people com-

Wait times could be affected, Brown said, noting those who are not acutely ill could face longer waits if people come in who need immediate or quick attention. Brown acknowledged it is frustrating, but noted it is the reality at most hospitals. “It’s not like you have a ton of spare time to be waiting and wait-

ing,” she said. “But, I know our ED does the best an emergency department can do and it’s a good job.” Thompson said while there are fewer doctors on the North Shore compared to the other side of the river, the supply is better than it was when he began managing the clinic. He is hopeful doctors who have been with the clinic will be able to continue with patients on the North Shore, noting the Manshadi clinic is a boost to services in the area. He said Northills management is also hoping to bring in another medical clinic, if possible, to fill the space. As for Thompson, he’ll be able to move ahead on the retirement he had planned when he agreed to run the clinic. The closure leaves Kamloops with two walk-in clinics, both in Sahali and both within a few blocks of one another — the Summit Medical Clinic at Summit and Notre Dame drives and the Kamloops Urgent Care Clinic at Columbia Street and McGill Road.

What is Critical Illness Insurance?

LOCAL NEWS

Simply put, it is insurance that pays out a lump sum, tax-free payment if you are diagnosed with a Critical Illness (25 critical illnesses covered, the major ones being cancer, heart attack or stroke).

LEFT: Mike Forry (centre) and his well-being was the reason for a weekend fundraising golf tourney at the Mt. Paul Golf Course. Helping raise money for Forry’s recovery from a brutal assault were friends John Marini (left), Cott Finlayson Darren Gagnon and Larry Jolicoeur, all of whom donned Scotland shirts in honour of Forry’s birthplace.

Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with a critical illness? Could they have benefited from a lump sum payment of $10,000 up to $2,000,000, so they could have devoted 100% of their energies to their recovery, without worrying about the financial impacts of the illness? A critical illness can happen to anyone at any time and can mean major changes to your lifestyle and serious financial challenges, if you are not prepared. Could this happen to you? Call me today for a quote.

Hitting the links fore Forry By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It didn’t matter that Mike Forry couldn’t join his buddies on the golf course on Father’s Day. He was just happy to be sitting in the clubhouse, watching as friends swung and putted and lamented those missed shots. Simply put, said his sister, Ann, Forry being at Mt. Paul Golf Course was a miracle. Forry, 46, was hit in the head with a longboard on March 24 in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store in Brocklehurst. The assault came after a confrontation with a group of teens that had jaywalked across Tranquille Road in front

of the vehicle in which Forry was riding. The driver stopped, words were exchanged, Mike was hit — and he doesn’t remember anything afterward. Ann does. She remembers the phone call that her brother was in Royal Inland Hospital and doctors were working to save his life. She credits those doctors — Richard Brownlee in particular — as well as first responders and witnesses, all of whom scrambled to help the United Steelworkers representative after he hit the pavement unconscious. Ann remembers all the trips from her home in Vancouver to Kamloops to simply sit

by her brother’s side, to be there. She remembers every conversation she and her parents had with medical staff working to bring Mike back. “They put his body in freeze and that saved him,” she said. “I’m blown away from it all.” She is grateful they acted quickly to remove part of his skull to relieve the pressure on his brain, something Ann thinks is why, just three months later, her brother is finally home. He needs to be careful, however, and there are some things he won’t be doing for a long time — if ever. Like golfing. Mike’s buddy, Larry Jolicoeur, however, can still get out and swing

the club, as can many of Mike’s friends — so that’s why Jolicoeur organized the fundraising tournament, to help Mike cope with the reality his financial stability has also taken a huge hit. Jolicoeur is hoping, once the money is counted, to give his long-time buddy a few thousand dollars. Forry has been off work since the assault and there really isn’t much of a timeline on him returning to his job. The next few months will be focused on more rehabilitation. Ann said the family is relieved charges have been laid. Last week, police charged a 15-yearold with aggravated assault.

What ails the B.C. New Democratic Party? Plenty

A

FTER 34 NDP MLAs were sworn in to continue a stretch of opposition that will reach at least 16 years, leader Adrian Dix took a few questions about his future. The party’s provincial council will meet on Friday, June 21, to set the terms of reference for a review of the party’s dismal election performance, Dix told reporters. He repeated that his performance won’t be spared and ticked off some conventional wisdom about the NDP campaign. Dix mentioned the alleged lack of “negative” ads, the local campaigns (read candidates), the decreasing reliability of polls and, when pressed, his surprise decision to come out against the proposed twinning of the TransMountain oil pipeline. Like last week’s hysteria over a tiny leak in that pipeline in Merritt, these are great sound bites for the short attention spans of the modern media. But, they don’t explain much. This all-powerful NDP provincial council is a case in point. A glimpse into its inner workings was provided by a summary of an NDP policy-development workshop called “Imagine Our Future” that was leaked by the B.C. Liberals in the final days of the campaign. The workshop took place in November 2010, coincidentally at the same provincial-council meeting where the revolt against former leader Carole James tumbled into the open. While 13 caucus members were knifing their leader for reasons they still can’t or won’t articulate in public — a glaring problem in itself — the

TOM FLETCHER Our Man in

VICTORIA backroom policy brainstorm revealed a deeper malaise. Among the “dream-tree” notions put forward in the workshop was “free” post-secondary tuition and public transit, along with raising wages and lowering fees for day care. This isn’t a dream tree, it’s a money tree. Remember, this is the NDP’s ruling body, not a high school social-justice class or an Occupy Vancouver squat. Showing a glimmer of adult supervision, the workshop table on “equitable tax policy” even identified the problem. Its first recommendation: “Increase our economic and financial literacy to gain credibility.” The “public-ownership” table really got radical. Scrap public-private partnerships, the basis of most government construction today. “Nationalize” independent power projects in the Venezuelan style of state seizure of private assets. And, perhaps most incredibly, tear up the trade agreement between Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. that harmonizes transport-truck regulations and so forth.

In the real world, the four Western premiers met this week in Winnipeg. And the three-province project now called “New West Partnership” will continue to dismantle archaic interprovincial barriers. Why would the NDP be secretly against that? Because it’s also a “labour-mobility” agreement. This harkens back to a supposed golden age in Canada, when two corporate titans shared the beer business, producing identical bland lager from identical factories in identical stubby bottles. Inter-provincial trade in these stubbies was strictly forbidden, requiring each province to have a big unionized brewery to make uniformly bad beer for the proletariat. This is the power of a monopoly union. And because of it, this was how governments tried to “create jobs.” It’s a bygone era to which many core NDP supporters stubbornly cling. This explains the party’s revival of a “jobprotection commissioner” for forestry. Which brings us to the proverbial root cause of the B.C. NDP’s woes. Its largest financial donor is the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which donated $1.4 million to the party in the past eight years, nosing out the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Hospital Employees’ Union. Former HEU and BCGEU presidents now sit in the NDP caucus, critics for health and “green” jobs respectively. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Don’t do as we do, do as we say. That’s the message the B.C. Liberals are sending to all residents of the province following the announcement that salaries for senior political staff in government ministries and Premier Christy Clark’s office are not just going up, but going up an obscene amount. B.C. cabinet orders dated earlier this month provide for an 18 per cent wage increase for Dan Doyle, Clark’s chief of staff, to a maximum salary of $230,000. This from a premier who campaigned on fiscal responsibility to help families and gain some ground on an out-ofcontrol deficit. This from a government that has continually told teachers, educational support staff, nurses and others in the health-care industry to tighten their belts because there is nothing in the kitty for wage increases. Most in the private sector have already tightened their belts to the max, not seeing any wage relief in years. Add to that the burden of increased taxes, a jump in utility rates and the rising cost of day-today living and residents of B.C. are wondering how they’re going to get by. That’s when citizens need to have faith in government — all levels of government — to come to the rescue and pull the country, province or city out of trouble. But, it’s getting harder to have faith in government officials. Whether it’s senators in Ottawa charging thousands of dollars in outlandish expenses from the public’s purse or government officials in Victoria receiving unfathomable pay increases, it’s no wonder residents are so apathetic when it comes to voting in a leader. Who can you trust? Voters sent the B.C. Liberals back to Victoria with a majority government and a mandate to set the province on the road to economic recovery. Helping themselves before helping the many in the province who are suffering is not what the people had in mind.

Re: Bass column: You get what you pay for, even around the council table: “And another silly comment by Dale Bass on a silly move by a few councillors. “In voting themselves a raise, Jordan Bateman of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation is right — every councillor knew what the pay was before they ran for office and they all seemed to forget that we are their employer and we decide if and when they should have a raise, not themselves. “I’d love to give myself a raise as well. “Let’s give the named councillors a new job by voting them out in the next civic election!” — posted by Jon Meers

I know who NOT to vote for in 2014

Editor: I was not surprised to hear councillors voted themselves a raise. As soon as I heard Nancy Bepple decided her pay wasn’t enough, the writing was on the wall. I guess having a job at Thompson Rivers University and being an elected official with a fairly substantial stipend is not enough, especially when about one-third of that is tax-free. To say they didn’t hear any negative feedback is nonsense. I can’t tell you how angry and disappointed I am in all of them who voted for themselves. The previous method of annual cost-of-living increases made sense. They were elected to serve, not line their pocketbooks. If they find this is not sufficient, leave. No one is holding them here. What I did not read or hear is whether they still are getting the annual cost-of-living increase. I would hope that, after they gave themselves a raise, the increase was cancelled and they don’t expect to receive both. Most, if not all, of these councillors have jobs with good pay. Not everyone in this city is that fortunate. Some only get raises if the minimum wage goes up and are working two or more jobs to make ends meet. Others live on fixed pensions that did not increase by $2,000 per year and are struggling with the 3.55 per cent tax increase, yet must put up with greedy councillors. I hope the people of Kamloops remember this act and don’t re-elect any of them. I know I won’t vote for them. Joan Owens Kamloops

They won’t get my vote Editor: They were definitely wrong. They ran knowing the salary councillors were earning. They have other jobs. Good for those who opposed it. Arjun Singh sure caved in pretty quick! Whining over what others get is childish. Yes, this will make a difference in how I vote next time. I think each candidate before running should be asked if they are willing to work for the next three years for the current salary. Joan Friend Kamloops

Keep memory sharp in 2014 Editor: Council votes itself a raise — shameful! Another money grab by force from the citizens, especially seniors and other low-income, fixed-income workers. How is this looking after the people councillors represent? They obviously pay no attention to the pulse of the people and the struggles happening in Kamloops. We all would like a little more money to run our affairs. We should be asking council to debate and grant a tax reprieve to Kamloops citizens. We are tired of paying more for everything, including granting big business a tax reprieve when it comes crying to council, more for parking, more for taxes, more for water and garbage services, more for bus fare, more for council and staff mistakes — or lessons, as they are called — and the list goes on. My advice to Nancy Bepple

and others who voted themselves a raise is to resign the seat or, if they insist on comparing themselves to peers in other towns, move there and get a seat on that council. Bepple does not deserve a raise as she hides behind her mine shares in order to avoid making a decision on looking after the interests of the citizens she was elected to protect. I hope taxpayers’ memory doesn’t fail them again at election time in 2014. Penny Gabriel Kamloops

Tie pay to seniors’ pensions Editor: Maybe councillors could improve their image if their salaries were tied to seniors’ pensions and the raises seniors get after a lifetime of work. Rob White Kamloops

Campaigning against Bepple Editor: My decision as to who to vote for in the next municipal election has been impacted. I will not vote for Nancy Bepple and will campaign against her. She knew what she was getting paid when she ran. Bepple’s comments about other salaries out there for new graduates heading north are not related to what councillors get paid. If she wants that kind of salary, she should head north. So, Bepple, Nelly Dever, Tina Lange, Donovan Cavers and Arjun Singh are off my list of people to vote for in the next election.

To assume we do not get good people if we do not pay them well is crap. Lots of really good people run for office to help provide a service to Kamloops and they know from the get-go what they are being paid. A good example is Ken Christian. Larrie Hicks Kamloops

No problem with raises Editor: Here is the text of an e-mail I sent to Donovan Cavers: I see in this week’s local papers that some people are giving council — and you, especially, it seems — a hard time about the minimal wage-raise issue. I have no problem with it. In fact, I find this “You knew the salary going into the job” malarkey to be specious, meanspirited rubbish. If that was the rule everywhere, everybody would still be working for the same wage they got the day they were hired on at their place of employment without regard for inflation, experience gained or responsibilities added. It’s an attitude many employers seem to have and a constraint I’m sure they’d love to apply to their employees. Sadly, it also seems to be one a great many taxpayers want to inflict on those in public service. However, it is not mine. And before I forget — thanks for speaking out against the Ajax mine proposal. I don’t want it to see it approved, either.

Royal Affair brings intrigue The Royal Inland Hospital has a secret — but it’s one it wants you to find out. Two years ago, the RIH Foundation started a gala dinner as part of its fundraising campaign. The gala, however, competed with many other excellent events, so the organizing committee tackled the question: “What can we do differently?” The answer? Create mystery and intrigue. And, so, the RIH Foundation presents Royal Affair — a fundraising event like no other. Deviating from the traditional gala format used in the past, this year’s event will be nothing short of an adventure. Not much can be said without revealing the secret, but some details can be shared. Held at a mystery location, Royal Affair, presented by KPMG, will take place on Saturday, June 22, at 7 p.m. A contemporary and eclectic evening is promised, with the allure of romance and an unforgettable adventure. The dress code is not the typical gown and button-down collar standard, but calls for flamboyantly casual - think “nightclub chic.” The location is a closely guarded secret, but don’t expect the typical banquet hall or ballroom. Guests will require participation and good humour to discover its locale. “The Royal Inland Hospital Foundation is so pleased to be working with an incredible organizing committee that has taken a fresh approach to raising funds and the profile for our hospital,” RIH Foundation CEO Heidi Coleman said. “This event is another outstanding example of the tremendous support by individuals and the business community for RIH.

“We have been amazed by the contributions of both time and funds.” Tammy Robertson, RIH Foundation board member and organiz-

ing committee chairwoman, agrees. “I am a huge supporter of RIH. “Many I know, including myself, have needed the services of

our hospital. “I am very happy I can give back by helping to organize Royal Affair,” Robertson said. “All members of

our incredible event committee are pleased to be a part and will deliver an evening that will surely impress.” Want to attend? Call 250-314-2325.

Curious and concerned come out By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Despite some awkward timing, Kinder Morgan’s latest round of public engagement for its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion brought out more residents who were curious than concerned. The open house, meant to gather feedback on routes the company is considering for the additional pipeline it wants to build, came as Kinder Morgan was mopping up a small oil spill southeast of Merritt. The spill was originally pegged at about 12 barrels — or 2,000 litres — of oil. But, by the time the doors opened at the Kamloops Convention Centre on Thursday, June 13, Kinder Morgan vicepresident of operations Hugh Harden said it was looking like the leak had only released about five barrels. “We always like to be a little more conservative at the front end reporting volumes,” Harden told KTW. “The worst thing would be to say it’s only one barrel and have it turn out to be 100.” That still concerned Bryce Eberle, who described himself as skeptical about pipelines

in general. “It doesn’t look good,” said the Kamloops resident and former citycouncil hopeful, noting he didn’t know much about the company’s expansion plan and was trying to bring himself up to speed. Eberle said he understands the need for oil, but wonders if money spent on pipelines — Kinder Morgan’s expansion alone will cost an estimated $5.4 billion — could be better spent on clean energy. “We keep on going back to the same practices we’ve had for the last 50 years,” he said. But, there wasn’t much skepticism in the crowd. Most people who spoke to KTW described the presentation as interesting or informative and expressed few concerns. Greg Toth, project manager for the expansion, said he hadn’t heard much about the spill from the crowd. Instead, pipeline routes remained the focus. In Kamloops, Kinder Morgan has picked out two routing options to study. Its preferred route would follow fibre-optic lines through the Lac du Bois protected area. While the existing Trans Mountain line goes

through the Westsyde neighbourhood, Toth said the company has heard from landowners who would prefer to see the new pipe laid away from their homes. “Very early on we received some unsolicited maps from landowners in the region,” Toth said. Those maps showed the same fibre-optic lines the company is now considering as a route. “It was something we were already aware of, but it was interesting that it was reinforced by a local landowner,” Toth said. Following the fibreoptic transmission system would allow the company to minimize the amount of undisturbed land it has to dig up, Toth said, though following the route through the Lac Du Bois Protected Area will require provincialgovernment approval. The alternative option, which mainly follows the existing pipeline route, is more of a fallback, Toth said, in case B.C.’s Ministry of Environment isn’t amenable to the plan. Neither route is set in stone, however. When the company applies to the National Energy Board for permission to expand sometime late this year, it will des-

ignate one route as the preferred choice — but will also discuss the alternate route in detail. The company is still taking feedback on both routes online at talk.transmountain.com/kamloops.

Stanislav Marek of the Czech Republic has moved his life to Kamloops in order to foster a new generation of River City paddlers. Dave Eagles/KTW

Marek era underway at Shumway By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE KAMLOOPS Canoe and Kayak Club (KCKC) is ushering in the Stanislav Marek Generation. “I was looking for jobs around the world and this is exactly what I was looking for,” said Marek, the club’s new head coach who moved seven weeks ago to Kamloops from the Czech Republic. “My long-term goal is to create a generation of my athletes.”

The local paddling club looks to have landed a gem in Marek, who competed in kayaking in the junior and senior ranks for the Czech Republic, winning medals at the European and world championships and twice narrowly missing out on qualifying for the Olympic Games. Marek, 31, began coaching about eight years ago, immediately after his paddling career began to fizzle. Since then, he has coached national-level athletes in the Czech Republic, Cyprus

and Taiwan. The nature-loving Czech revived his kayaking career during a one-year stint in Cyprus in 2008, racing first for a club before cracking the island nation’s national team. “I was better than before, so they asked me to be a member of their national team,” Marek said. “It was possible, even without nationality or citizenship.” Marek is still eligible to race for Cyprus. After spending three years coaching Taiwan’s national dragon-boating

team, Marek decided last year it was time for a change. “The travel from Taiwan to Czech for three years became too much,” Marek said. “I saw an advertisement online from Kamloops, so I sent an email to Jeff Morgan, the club commodore.” The two negotiated through emails and, before long, it was clear Marek was the right man for the job. With no significant other or children to consider, the decision to move was an easy one for Marek, whose full-

time job is coaching at the Shumway Lakebased club. “I was looking for a job, especially a job like this,” he said. “To start with a small club with a few athletes and improve the club. To start from the beginning. “My goal, in the short term, is to double the number of kids who will be able to compete in the first race of the season next April.” The club already boasts several nationallevel athletes who are in the junior ranks.

HAPPY CANADA DAY KAMLOOPS! Join us at Riverside Park for the Canada Day Celebrations on July 1st, 2013.

Dylan Armstrong is one step closer to claiming the bronze medals he seemingly deserves. “I feel extremely happy that I can finally be awarded in the future the bronze medals from the 2008 Olympic Games [in Beijing] and the 2010 World Indoor Championships [in Qatar],” Armstrong told KTW. Andrei Mikhnevich of Belarus has been banned for life for doping. He won bronze at the 2008 Olympics and silver at the 2010 World Indoor Championships. Armstrong placed fourth in both events. In March, Mikhnevich’s re-test sample from the 2005 World Track and Field Championships came back positive.

The lifetime ban, issued by the Belarus Athletics Federation, strips Mikhnevich retroactively of any medals he won from 2005 onward, meaning Armstrong is in line for belated bronze. “I have not heard too much as of yet,” Armstrong told KTW on Thursday, June 13, “but I know Athletics Canada, along with the COC [Canadian Olympic Committee] will be in strong communication with IAAF [International Association of Athletics Federations] and the IOC [International Olympic Committee] as to when and how we will get the medals reallocated.” Armstrong threw 21.04 metres at the 2008 Olympics, just .01 metres behind Mikhnevich, who placed third.

Paddling club to offer masters program, dragon boating X From A17

Marek’s job will be to help them improve while at the same time fostering the younger paddlers. He also noted the club will be hosting summer camps and there are plans for a masters program at the KCKC.

“We are open to anyone who would like to spend free time paddling or canoeing,” Marek said. “We also plan to have dragon boating.” Email info@kamloopscanoeandkayakclub.ca for more program information.

The Marek Generation is already starting to blossom. “Each week there is one more child coming and now we start to run summer camps,” he said. “The club, I have to say, is growing. Every week it’s growing.”

Armstrong thanks authorities for exposing cheating athletes X From A17

The Belarusian placed second at the World Indoor Championships with a 21.68metre heave. Ralf Bartels of Germany, who threw 21.44 metres and originally placed third at the world indoor championships, will likely receive silver, while Armstrong, who finished fourth with a 21.39-metre toss, will slide

into third. The hulking Kamloops product thanked the IAAF and the World Anti-Doping Agency for their work. “They have really stepped up their responsibilities to try and catch the athletes and federations that protect and cheat out other clean athletes,” Armstrong said in an email. “So, a big credit goes out to them! They are doing a

great job.” It seems bronze is now in the cards, but it’s not known how long it will take before the medals are around Armstrong’s neck. Canadian cross-country skier Beckie Scott had to wait nearly two-and-a-half years before receiving her 2002 Olympic gold medal after the gold and silver medallists were disqualified. However, it took just four

months for American shot putter Adam Nelson to wear his Olympic gold after original Athens champion Yuriy Bilonog of Ukraine was caught doping. “Getting the bronze would definitely mean a lot,” said Armstrong, a Westsyde secondary graduate. “I wanted to win a medal for my country and for the community of Kamloops. It was a childhood dream.”

Zone 8 counts down to the . . .

2013 BC SENIORS GAMES

Kamloops will host the 2013 BC Seniors Games from Aug. 20 to Aug. 24, 2013.The city is expecting more than 3,500 athletes, ages 55 and up, to attend the Games, which will feature 25 events, ranging from cribbage to ice hockey. The BC Seniors Games Society is a volunteer non-profit society funded by the provincial government and in co-operation with the BC Games Society, which event manages the Games. Kamloops can expect an economic impact from the Games of more than $2 million. KTW continues its biweekly feature page, with each page focusing on one of the Games’ events.

soccer By D. Mark Crown SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Soccer is one of the most popular and beloved games in the world. But, it isn’t just for the young. It is also for the young at heart. Danny Nikolic is the Zone 8 soccer co-ordinator for the 2013 BC Seniors Games in Kamloops and loves to play soccer as a senior. “I have played all my life and, in the old days, I used to play professional soccer,” Nikolic said. “I play because I just love sports.” Nikolic loves to score goals and it is not surpris-

On The Go?

ing he prefers to play an offensive position. “I play any position” he said, “but I like to play midfield or forward.” Soccer at the BC Seniors Games is played on a regulation-size field and with the same rules known to all soccer games. There is only one difference — two 35-minute halves, rather than the normal pair of 45-minute halves. Making the game 20 minutes shorter allows for good competition without the games being overly exhausting, Nikolic said. “It is very competitive and friendly” he said. “During games, you make lots of friends. We

like the competition but, as soon as the game is over, we are friends and we will go for beers.” Soccer at the BC Seniors Games will feature two separate round-robin tournaments for teams consisting of men ages 55 to 60 and 60 and older. Each team will play a minimum of four games during the event and medals will be awarded for first, second and third place in both age categories. Nikolic is in charge of organizing teams for the Games and arranging practice times. For more information on soccer at the Games, or to get involved in either age category, contact Nikolic at 250-376-4929 or visit the BC Seniors Games website at bcseniorsgames.org.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Pride barbecue and dance next month The Gay and Lesbian Association of Kamloops (GALA) is hosting a party and everyone is invited. On Saturday, July 13, beginning at noon, the Pride Barbecue and Dance will begin with burgers and hot dogs at Stuart Wood elementary — being cooked up by the Lions Club and volunteers from Special Olympics. Also on-hand will be numerous local non-profits and businesses with display and vendor tables. At 9 p.m., a 19-plus dance will take place at the Kamloops Curling Club. For more information, visit GALA’s website at gaykamloops. ca, or email thepresident@ live.ca.

Senior Stars on stage

It’s not The Voice or American Idol. It’s wiser and more refined. Senior Star Kamloops 2013 is slated to run Wednesday, June 26, at Renaissance Retirement Residence in North Kamloops. Now in its seventh year, Senior Star is an annual national talent competition open solely to seniors.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT Registration is closed, but fans of singing and musical instruments are welcome to watch the local competitors take to the stage. “Chartwell’s Senior Star has grown to become the largest celebration of senior talent in Canada,” said Brent Binions, president and CEO of Chartwell Retirement Residences. “We are proud to support the incredible talent of today’s seniors and continue to be amazed and entertained year after year by the calibre of performers who participate.” The contest is open to all Canadian residents ages 65 and up. The National Senior Star final will be held in November.

Secret ingredient: Thrive Kamloops Thrive Festival has announced the participants in its Iron Chef competition. As part of the festival’s Thrive Expo, people will be able to

watch local culinary ninjas battle head-to-head incorporating a secret ingredient into their masterpieces — just like the popular TV show. The twist for Kamloops Thrive Festival’s Iron Chef? The secret ingredients are all distinctly local. Local restaurants participating will be Arianna’s Cafe, Delta Sun Peaks, Noble Pig, Sanbiki, Table 24 (Salmon Arm) and Terra. Other local businesses helping to make the competition a reality are Blackwell Dairy, Cooper’s Foods, Golden Ears Farm, Kamloops Farmers’ Market, Kam Lake View Meats, Laughing Swan Farm, River Fresh, Summit Gourmet Meats and Western Restaurant Supply. Competitions will begin with a preliminary round on Saturday, June 22. The semifinals and final will run on Sunday, June 23. For more information, go online to thrivefestival.ca.

As in previous years, the TNRD will be offering clubs for readers of all levels. When children sign up for the program, they will receive a reading log to record their summer reading â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including weekly stickers. They will also be able to participate in fun activities and exciting contests with a chance

Passat offers plenty as a midsize sedan By Lorne Drury METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

W

HO WOULD EVER EXPECT A MIDSIZE FOURDOOR FAMILY SEDAN COULD AVERAGE MORE THAN 5.6L/100 KILOMETRES IN EVERYDAY DRIVING? For those of us who grew up in the era of Imperial measurement, that 5.6 figure translates into 50 miles per gallon. Well, that’s exactly what I averaged during a week-long road test of the diesel version of a 2013 Volkswagen Passat in a combination of highway and city travel. During a couple of lengthy highway road trips that week, I even averaged 5.2L/100 km — or 54 m.p.g. — and I wasn’t hypermiling by any means, driving as I normally would. What that tells me is anyone in the market for a midsize sedan should take a long, hard look at the 2013 Passat TDI. The Passat was redesigned in 2012 and comes with only minor changes in content for 2013. However, the 2012 remake was a significant one as the Passat was transformed from a European sports sedan into a family car designed and built for the North American market. With a new plant opened in Chattanooga, Tenn., Volkswagen moved production of the Passat over to North America and a new generation of Passat was launched that is both longer and wider than the previous version. This was done to appeal to a North American audience that likes things bigger than they do across the pond, where the roads are narrower and the driving distances shorter. Volkswagen also dropped the price significantly, with the 2013 Passat now starting at

$23,975 — although to get the diesel engine you have to pony up $26,575 for a six-speed manual or $27,975 for a six-speed DSG automatic with Tiptronic and sport mode. This new Passat is perhaps less stylish than the old Europeanoriented model, but it is

The Passat was redesigned in 2012 for a North American audience.

not out of place in the midsize-sedan market when you consider the perennial sales leader over the years — the Toyota Camry — has a conservative look as well. X See THIS B7

This diesel isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clunky, loud or smoky X From B6

What the Passatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior lacks in flash, it makes up for in functionality and comfort.

six-speed automatic with Tiptronic, or a 280 horse power 3.6-line V6. However, after driving the TDI, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine how you could top it. My test vehicle came in top-shelf Highline trim, with Trendline and Comfortline also available.

However, put it up against the Hyundai Sonata, Ford Fusion or Kia Optima and the Passat is certainly on the plain side. But, none of these cars offer the fuel economy of the Passat TDI, which is also a joy to drive. The engine only makes 140 horses, but the grunt is terrific with 236 pound-feet of torque. Keep in mind, this 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine is one of the new breed of cleandiesel entries on the market. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at all like the noisy, smoky diesel engines of years gone by. This one is quiet and clean. Drive behind a diesel Passat or Jetta and you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a diesel. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no smoke coming out of the exhaust and when you sit inside thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s none of the diesel clatter we all remember in the old diesels. The Passat is also available with two other gasoline engine choices â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 170 horse power, 2.5-litre, four-cylinder mated with a six-speed manual, or

It priced out at $37,195 including freight and PDI. While not flashy, this interior worked well. The front seats are extremely comfortable as we found on a couple of extended road trips. There is plenty of room for three passengers in the rear, meaning this is truly a fivepassenger vehicle. The trunk is also spacious with 450 litres (15.9 cubic feet) of cargo volume. On the road, the Passat is simply an easy car to drive. It’s not a sport sedan that you’ll want to throw around corners in a big hurry, but it is up to spirited driving when the need arises.

THE INTERIOR IS HOME TO A MULTITUDE OF BIG

fishing lakes. These large bodies of water offer plentyy of fish that will challenge p g anglers g of all skill types. Loon Lake near Cache Creek, a unique 693-hectare (1,700-acre) span of water that is more than 13 kilometres long and less than 500 metres wide, is one of those lakes. Located in a steep valley between the Bonaparte plateau, the Arrowstone hills and the Thompson plateau, it is a popular recreational lake with numerous homes, cabins, and resorts along its northwestern shore. The lake is populated by large numbers of naturally reproducing rainbow trout. Spawning occurs in the numerous creeks that flow into Loon Lake, including Thunder Creek. The lake is deep — descending to 65 feet at its deepest points — and clear with thin ribbons of shoals along the shoreline. Unfortunately, bulrushes and other shore-

line vegetation make it difficult to fish the shallows. As a result, the lake is popular with trollers. The long length of the lake and its deep water is ideal for trolling. Flatfish, spoons, small inline spinners such as Panther Martins and Mepps, and Ford Fenders tipped with a hook and worm work well. Proper p selection of trolling depth is important, so boats equipped with electronic fish-finders have a distinct advantage. Use weights or a small downrigger to consistently put your lures in front of the trout. The large population of trout, which average close to 0.5 km (1 lb), offer fast action at this lake. Fly-fishing here is not impossible. It is worth the effort for those willing to target the shoals or dropoffs. Good hatches of mayflies, y chironomids and dragonflies, g as well as freshwater shrimp and leeches, ch are

available year-round. While you can find trout throughout the length of the lake, most anglers concentrate on the ends. Note that a fishing closure is in effect all year off the mouth of Thunder Creek and within 500 m of the outlet stream at the southwest end of the lake from December 1 to April p 30. Signs g mark the boundaries of the closed areas.

In practice, South Africa has been doing without him for more than a decade already — but, psychologically, it is just now getting to grips with the reality that he will soon be gone entirely. For all its many faults and failures, post-apartheid South Africa is a miracle that few expected to happen. Although Mandela retired from the presidency in 1999, 14 years later he is still

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH

With the arrival of hot summer days comes a craving for lighter, refreshing wines. When choosing a summer wine I always recommend crisp wines, low in acid and low in oak. These wines are often lower in alcohol and not only make me feel refreshed, relaxed and revitalized but less dehydrated! Fortunately, if you live in the Thompson Okanagan your choices for summer sipping is endless – and extremely local. The Thompson / Shuswap is often classified as a cool climate growing region and ironically produces the most amazing warm weather wines! From crisp Rosés to classic Gewürztraminers a wine can be found for even the most discerning of palates! Like wines, summer foods are also lighter, crisper and full of texture and this makes pairing fun and flavourful! To help you navigate summer fare without fail, here are four wines along with suggestions on food pairings that’ll help elevate your summer staples and keep your meals delicious, simple and full of mouth-watering tastes! Pinot Gris – this summer wine can be fantastic on its own, pairing well with a cool pool or summer festival, but if you are looking for a perfect pairing I would start with kebabs! Pinot Gris is often soft and delicious and just big enough to complement pork, salmon or chicken kebabs. In addition to your favorite bbq’d kebabs fresh grilled vegetables and squashes complement the aromas and flavors of this popular varietal! I have to admit – I am a born again Riesling lover! My love for Riesling probably started long ago when the only alcohol that crossed these lips had to be a well-priced fruit bomb.. so in those days (a very, very long time ago) inexpensive imported Rieslings fit the bill! Now that I consider myself an ‘educated’ wine consumer (it’s taken loads of practice to garner that title) I have come to appreciate the depth of this sexy and sumptuous summer grape! Riesling is an extremely versatile grape that grows incredibly well in Kamloops running the gauntlet from crisp and dry to luscious and sweet from rocks and limestone to floral and exotic!

Riesling is especially great for fusion cuisine and recently I had a near perfect pairing drinking a dryer style Riesling while enjoying a herb-crusted halibut. With the depth of flavour in good Rieslings they no longer represent that aforementioned fruit bomb, but a class of wine that elevates the foods it is paired with. Try enjoying Riesling with spicy grilled prawns, Mexican fare or as a special treat – fresh oysters! The essence of “Wine Pairing 101” sticks to the two basic fundamentals – complement or contrast. When ‘complementing’ if the wine has tones of pineapple and one pairs it with a hawaiian pizza… one is most certainly going to have a hit! The idea of contrast is more subtle and often more rewarding. Such can be said when pairing food with classic Gewürztraminers. The exotic fruit forward and often sweeter style Gewürztraminers are full of viscosity and depth and stand up very well to the likes of Indian and Thai cuisine. I would highly recommend enjoying a glass of Gewürztraminer with a spicy Thai chicken salad. Add some mango to your salad and you will not only have complementing but contrasting flavors – I know you won’t be disappointed! If you haven’t given yourself permission to buy pink wine in years – I am giving you permission now! I am not talking about White Zinfandel or other pink wines made popular because of their high sugar content and their ability to be consumed with sprite… I am talking about the lovely, bright, pretty, dry Rosés that are being produced beautifully in your very region. These wines are beautiful on their own but pair extremely well with picnics! And who doesn’t love a picnic? All the foods that you can imagine at a perfect picnic pair deliciously well with Rosé. Salty charcuterie, tangy cheeses, fresh fruit, pate, cold grilled chicken, smoked salmon and all the accompaniments will explode with flavor when consumed with any number of beautiful BC Rosés. Summer wines are meant to be fun and enjoyed while eating sumptuous food, playing a game of bocce or lounging in the pool. There is nothing better than a summer breeze, a good laugh and a glass of refreshing summer wine! Bobbe Lyall Operations Manager Harper’s Trail Winery

Love for Mandela is not a given in Africa X From B12

Just in the past two weeks, however, the tone of the discussion has begun to change. On hearing that Mandela had been admitted to hospital yet again, Andrew Mlangeni, one of his dearest friends and once a fellow prisoner on Robben Island, said simply: “It’s time to let him go. The family must release him, so that God may have his own way with him . . . Once the family releases him, the people of South Africa will follow.” That one comment opened the floodgates, for it had a strong resonance in traditional

African culture, which holds that a very sick person cannot die until his family “releases” him. They have to give him “permission” to die, by reassuring him his loved ones will be fine when he’s gone. So, South Africans must now accept that they can get along without Mandela — and then he will be free to go. It’s not that everybody really believes in this tradition, but it frames the conversation in more positive and less distressing way. People can argue about whether or not South Africa is doing as well as it should, but

they can at least agree Mandela got the country safely through the most dangerous phase of the transition and that they can carry on with the job of building a just and democratic society without him. Except for President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, of course. Mugabe has always deeply resented the fact Mandela is revered as the father of his nation while he himself is seen as a vicious tyrant who has ruined his country. So, he seized the opportunity of a recent high-profile interview on South African television to accuse Mandela

of having failed in his duty to South Africa’s black majority: He had been too soft on the whites. What would have particularly annoyed Mandela, if he was well enough to watch the show, was that the interviewer was Dali Tambo, the son of his oldest and most trusted ally, the late Oliver Tambo. As young lawyers, the two men co-founded South Africa’s first black-run legal office in 1952 and, when Tambo became the president-in-exile of the African National Congress, he made Mandela’s release from prison its highest priority. Dali Tambo is another kettle

of fish — a flamboyant man who has traded on his family name to forge a career as a TV interviewer. He has his own soft-focus interview show, People of the South, and recently he persuaded Mugabe to give him a two-hour interview. In the course of it, Mugabe dismissed Mandela as “too much of a saint.” “Mandela has gone a bit too far in doing good to the nonblack communities, really in some cases at the expense of blacks,” the Zimbabwean dictator said.

Best memorial? A good, solid democracy: Tutu X From B13

“That’s being too saintly, too good, too much of a saint.” Nonsense. What Mandela and his white negotiating partner, F.W. De Klerk, were trying to avoid in the early 1990s was a South African civil war that would have killed millions and lasted for a long time. The 20 per cent white minority was heavily armed and had nowhere else to go. Their families, for the most part, had been in South Africa for at least a century. Therefore, a settlement that gave South Africa a peaceful (and hopefully prosperous) democratic future had to be one in which the whites still had a future. So, you either make the kind of deal Mandela and De Klerk made, in which nobody loses too much, or you submit to a future that would make the current civil war in Syria look like

a tea party. And by the way, Mugabe was making his remarks in a country whose economy has been so devastated by his “tougher” approach that fully one-quarter of the population has fled abroad in search of work, mostly to South Africa. Archbishop Desmond Tutu, talking about Mandela’s inevitable death, said last week: “The best memorial to Nelson Mandela would be a democracy that was really up and running: A democracy in which every single person in South Africa knew that they mattered.” That is still some distance away, but Mandela has laid the foundations. He was the right man for the job — a saint who also understood realpolitik.

Karen Tracy Kostiuk

zy

www.kamloopsthisweek.com

It is with profound sadness, that the family of Karen Kostiuk, announces her sudden passing on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at the age of 48 years. She will always be lovingly remembered by her loving husband, soul mate and best friend of 27 years, Terry Kostiuk, and her two beautiful children, who were the light of her life, Kasia Kostiuk of New Zealand and Tegan Kostiuk of Kamloops. Also left to mourn her passing is her mother Kathleeen “Gay” Robinson, her sister Cheryl (Shaun Clark) Stanley, mother-in-law Donna Walker, father-in-law John (Arlene) Kostiuk her sisters-in-law Shelley Jones and Anita Cole (Stephen Webb), brother-in-law Brian (Janet) Walker, nieces Emily Jones and Madison Stanley and nephew, Jake Stanley. Also mourning are various Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and a large extended family. She was predeceased by her father Glenn Robinson. Karen was born on January 2, 1965 in Edmonton, Alberta. As a toddler the family moved to Kamloops. She graduated from high school and married Terry in 1986 and with a few moves under their belt to various locations, felt like Kamloops was their home and moved back to raise their family. Also having a few career paths along the way, she eventually settled down and worked as a Community Support Worker at Thompson Community Services for the last 14 years. She was known as “mom” to all that she cared for. She truly had a gift in this field of work and she touched each and every resident with her kind spirit and loving heart. Karen was a talented and published poet. She had a passion for all animals and at one time worked tirelessly at the SPCA recovering animals from disheartening situations. She had a great love for music and loved to dance. She had a gift for making the less fortunate feel fortunate, the physically and mentally challenged to continue to have hopes, dreams and goals, to love all who knew her unconditionally and most importantly, an ability to make family her most important accomplishment in her life. She never took friends for granted and was everyone’s friend far and wide. She lived, loved and dreamed with passion.

I’M FREE Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. I’m following the path God has laid, you see. I took his hand when I heard His call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found the peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee. God wanted me now, He set me free

The Memorial Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 21, 2013 in the Kamloops Funeral Home at 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops. Tea to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations in Karen’s memory can be made to the Kamloops SPCA, 1211 - 8 th Street, Kamloops, BC, V2B 2Y3 Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

NETIA FISHER

APRIL 14, 1931 – JUNE 12, 2013 On June 12, Netia Fisher, peacefully stepped into Glory. Netia was born in Cranbrook BC on April 14, 1931 to Jesse and Azalia Wiles (both passed). Netia’s siblings are Alfrieda Clarke (Frank) California (both passed); Jean Marshall (Harold) 100 Mile House; Leona Charlton (Phil) Parksville; Thelma Corley, Oregon; and Barbara Curtis, Oregon (passed). Netia married Don Fisher in 1951. Don accidently passed in a logging accident in 1987. They had six children, Janet Simmons (Gord) Red Deer; Donna Kaiser, Kamloops; Elizabeth Fisher (Greg) Barriere; Susan Dandell (Dave) Vernon; Alan Fisher, Kamloops; Linda Fisher (Dan) Kamloops. Also, a dozen grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Netia and Don tried farming for a year in Hardisty, Alberta, and lived in a logging camp at Red Lake and Criss Creek, at Tranquille Valley for 5 years, then lived in Kamloops until they both passed. Netia will be remembered for her love of gardening, and frying the best chicken in the world. Netia loved her family and friends and was a mom and friend to many. We miss her so much already. The family would love to have you join us in a celebration of her life on Saturday, June 22, at 4 pm at Kamloops Funeral Home, followed by refreshments and then laying roses at Hillside Cemetary.

The Ship I am standing upon the

seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is on object of beauty & strength & I stand & watch her, until at length, she is only a speck of white cloud just wheret he seas & sky meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side exclaims, “There, she’s gone!” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as she was when she left my side & just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone, there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout “There she comes!”. Author Unknown

If I Knew Leanna Catherine Cassidy (nee: McKay)

November 1, 1955 - June 18, 1996

A Daughter A Wife A Mom A Best Friend An Angel

Remembered for how you lived your life and touched the lives of those around you, You will live in our hearts and souls forever. Love Mel, Shane and Adam

If I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say “I love you,” instead of assuming you would KNOW I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away. For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right. There will always be another day to say “I love you,” And certainly there’s another chance to say our “Anything I can do?”

But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day, That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear Take time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.” And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.
