David Trawin has just completed his first year as chief administrative officer for the City of Kamloops. The self-described “numbers guy” previously worked for the City of Terrace and in the private sector in Florida, where he attended university on a soccer scholarship. Dave Eagles/KTW

AVID TRAWIN doesn’t think in highlights. That might not normally be an issue but, as Kamloops’ latest chief administrative officer begins his second year on the job, council members and media alike have asked him to pick out his favourite moment from year one. “Maybe it’s a flaw of mine or not, but I don’t think like that,” Trawin said. “I think of what things I want to get done. So, fine, that’s fixed, bang. What else can we get done? I never really reflect on that.” It’s perhaps fitting for someone whose favourite way of describing himself and his plans for the organization he now heads is some variation on “process.” On the differences between himself and former CAO Randy Diehl: “I’m more of a numbers guy. Randy wasn’t. He was more of a big-picture guy.”

By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

On why he wanted the job: “I thought I could help with moving the city forward and with the process side of things.” Originally from the Interior, an NCAA soccer scholarship took Trawin to Florida Atlantic University in the 1980s for undergrad and a master’s degree in urban planning. But, a after few years working in Sunshine State, Trawin decided he preferred his home province and headed back north. “Florida’s OK to live,” he said, “for a bit.” Trawin also opted to leave behind private-sector work in favour of local government. “As a hired gun in the private sector, you do some things which, in my view, aren’t the best in terms of planning,” he said. A planning-department job, he said, was a chance to

“build communities.” A job heading up Terrace’s development and engineering department led to the same position in Kamloops. Then, in May 2012, the spot as the city’s top staff member. Since becoming CAO, changes at city hall have kept Trawin busy with his focus on process. When hiring new public works director Tracy Kyle, Trawin said he was looking for someone less “project-oriented” than former director David Duckworth (who made a job switch of his own last year, to director of community and corporate services), who could focus on working with staff to make the operation more efficient. A department shuffle took city finance director Sally Edwards off the IT beat, giving her more time to focus on the city’s budgeting and buying process. That particular focus on process paid off.

CAO Trawin relishes council, staff relationship X From A1

Edwards figured out how the city could save about $1.9 million by buying road salt and other common items through multi-year tenders instead of purchasing year-by-year. The lineup and operational tweaks are earning Trawin positive reviews inside city hall but, as Mayor Peter Milobar pointed out, his tenure so far hasn’t been filled with sweeping changes. “In terms of the actual public, I guess what they would see is maybe a little more efficiency or more logical flow of information,” Milobar said. “But, no one’s going to walk in and go, ‘Wow, I never knew that organization chart could change so much.’” If his first year on the job looks somewhat low-key to outsiders, it’s a credit to Diehl, Trawin said, who left him to run an organization that is healthier than some. “What I’m finding out even more in my first year is the relationship between council and staff here is more uncommon than common,” Trawin said. “Asking other CAOs, there’s a real disjoint in a lot of places and a real

distrust between staff and council and council and staff. I don’t think it’s healthy.” But, that didn’t mean Trawin didn’t have a few concerns coming into the role. One of the biggest was his relationship with parks, recreation and cultural services director Byron McCorkell and thenpublic works director David Duckworth, both of whom had also applied for the CAO position. “Would they come around? Would it be a good working relationship or not? I think it has been,” Trawin said. “We have out conversations like anyone does, but they’re very supportive and very helpful.” McCorkell echoes that. “I said that when he took the job, he has the complete support of me and my guys and it’s been a pretty smooth transition,” he said. Like many at city hall, McCorkell said he doesn’t think Trawin’s leadership style is much of a departure from Diehl’s before him. “I think it’s a similar style, similar quiet leadership,” McCorkell said. “I see some definite

similarities between the two.” Diehl agrees with that. “From what I can see of what David has done in the operation, we’re both taskmasters,” the now-retired Diehl said. “We both want to get things done and make things happen. We’re not satisfied with the status quo. We want to make things happen and we don’t suffer fools.” So far, the former CAO has nothing but praise for his successor. “I’m very proud of the stuff he’s done,” Diehl said.

Froese a dangerous offender Serial rapist handed indeterminate prison sentence By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

O CANADA! ABOVE: Christina Wakefield and kids Ava, 7, and Ariah, 1, were among the many Kamloopsians who visited the KTW booth at yesterday’s (July 1) Canada Day festival in Riverside Park. Visitors chatted with KTW staff and got their photo taken inside a mock front page. RIGHT: Also enjoying a fantastic Canada Day long weekend was two-year-old Ruby Mortensen, who believes the amount of fun one has is proportional to how sandy one’s hands can get. Allen Douglas/KTW

Emotions ran high in a Kamloops courtroom on Friday, June 28, as serial rapist Jack Froese was handed an indeterminate jail term after being labelled a dangerous offender. Froese, 33, had previously pleaded guilty to two charges — kidnapping and sexual assault — stemming from an incident in November 2011 in which he abducted and repeatedly drugged and assaulted the employee of a Tranquille Road store. In court, the victim and 17 of her supporters filled six rows of the gallery as B.C. Supreme Court Justice Peter Rogers delivered a lengthy oral decision following more than two weeks of hearings. The Crown applied for Froese to be labelled a dangerous offender — a tag that can bring with it an indeterminate jail term — following the 2011 sexual assault in Kamloops. Defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen admitted his client fits the criteria of a dangerous offender, but argued Froese should receive treatment behind bars and then be given another closely super-

vised chance to live in the community. Rogers rejected Jensen’s assertion. “The evidence does not suggest to me Mr. Froese is now or will in the future be likely to make use of riskreducing behaviour,” the judge said. After a 2002 rape in Kamloops, Froese was sentenced to

In that instance, he attempted to force intercourse on a 16-year-old friend of his sister. Court heard the victim had thought of Froese as “a brother” prior to the assault. In June 2004, while

In May 2011, at the expiration of that sentence, he moved in with his mother in her Kamloops home and was the subject of a rare public-safety warning from RCMP. Froese was bound by a peace bond while in Kamloops and Mounties performed nightly curfew checks on him at his mother’s house. In delivering his sentence, Rogers said the evidence alone would have been enough to have Froese labelled a dangerous offender, let alone the in-depth reports written by psychiatrists and psychologists detailing the rapist’s pattern of offending — including one assessment in which he was found to have scored in the 99th percentile on a test used to identify psychopaths. “Some cases simply speak for themselves,” Rogers said, adding that he found Froese’s lack of remorse “remarkable and dismaying. “I find that Mr. Froese is as self-centred as ever. “His thoughts are only for himself.”

Progress in probe of alleged sexual assault? Kamloops Mounties have interviewed a person of interest in an alleged sex assault last month at a grad bush party, but no charges have been laid. RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush said an 18-year-old man “voluntarily came forward” to police and was questioned in connection with the sexual assault, though she was hesitant to label him a suspect. “To call that person a suspect at this point in the investigation would be premature,” she said. “An interview was conducted and this person was released

without charges.” On Tuesday, June 18, a crowd of more than 1,000 high-school age teens gathered in an area between Barnhartvale and Campbell Creek to celebrate the end of the school year. Following the party, a 17-year-old girl told her parents she’d been sexually assaulted. The girl’s family called police and an investigation was launched. Bush said investigators have been receiving “conflicting accounts” of what happened at the party. The investigation is ongoing.

“It was called in to the B.C. Ambulance Service by somebody who noticed him there and we were called by B.C. Ambulance,” Bush said. The Kamloops RCMP’s serious-crime unit, as well as a police-dog unit, forensic investigators and the BC Coroners Service, are all involved in the investigation. Mounties aren’t releasing any details about the cause of death, but indications are the murder could have taken place as early as 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 27. The murder scene is near a well-known homeless camp and social-services agencies have been working with police as the probe continues.

Rona to close Versatile store By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

Kamloops will have one less Rona store this fall. Rona Inc. has announced it was closing 11 “non-profitable stores” across the country. While the majority of the stores are in Ontario, three B.C. locations — including the Rona at 1555 Versatile Dr. — are also on the chopping block. Company spokeswoman Valérie Lamarre

said in an email the Versatile store will close on Oct. 6. “Because the store was under-performing and continued to lose money, Rona decided to close this location so that resources can be re-invested into other stores in the network,” she said. The city’s other Rona store, located on Mt. Paul Way on the T’kemlups Indian Band reserve, will remain open. Lamarre said the Versatile location

employs 51 workers, most of whom are parttime workers. She said the company tries to relocate employees where possible, but cannot always do so. “We are going to make resources available to help them in this transition,” she said. The Versatile Drive Rona opened in 2007. Lamarre said the company will put the 72,000-square-foot building up for sale in the coming weeks. Rona Inc. is hop-

Commodore to accommodate more A Victoria Street nightclub has the city’s support as it seeks to increase the number of patrons allowed through its doors. The Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge at 369 Victoria St. wants to change its liquor licence to increase its capacity to 107 people, up from 86 now allowed. Lawyer Dennis Coates told Kamloops city council that the

Commodore’s current capacity is a leftover from the venue’s days as a restaurant and needs to be corrected. Councillors were quick to agree to the change, with Coun. Tina Lange praising the bar’s staff for being responsible and receptive to any neighbourhood concerns that arise because of the bar’s clientele.

Another swimming accident in park A 25-year-old man from the Kootenays is in Vancouver General Hospital following an ill-advised dive into the Thompson River in Kamloops on the long weekend. Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Edward Preto said the man had been swimming with friends in Riverside Park in the wee hours of Saturday, June 29, at about 2:30 a.m., when he dove into shallow water, injuring himself seriously enough to be taken to Royal Inland Hospital before being transferred to Vancouver. This is the season’s second serious injury involving middle-ofthe-night swims in Riverside Park leading to serious injury. A 20-year-old tree planter from Comox suffered head and spinal injuries when he dove into the river at 2:45 a.m. on June 3.

Mounties seize pot from Tk’emlups home Officers from the Kamloops RCMP rural detachment seized more than 200 marijuana plants from a trailer on the T’kemlups Indian Band during a raid on Friday, June 28.

Police say several officers and two police dogs searched the trailer at 819 East Shuswap Rd. just after 2 p.m. The trailer was set up specifically to grow marijuana. Mounties say the plants, which were at harvest stage, have a street value of several hundred thousand dollars. The trailer’s owners were not home at the time of the search, but police say they know who owns the property and who has been caring for the plants.

Eyes in the sky nab stolen-car suspect Kamloops RCMP took to the skies on Friday, June 28, to track down a stolen vehicle. CN Rail Police had attempted to stop the vehicle at the Red Lake train crossing north of Kamloops after it committed multiple traffic offences, but the driver fled the scene. The man eventually dumped the stolen car and stole a second vehicle, this time from a Brocklehurst home. With the help of reports from the public, RCMP were able to track the vehicle by helicopter.

When the driver eventually abandoned the second vehicle, Mounties in the helicopter were able to

Medical pot back at council Staff will have update on restrictions on July 16 By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

It’s taken about six months, but medical marijuana is finally making its way back onto city council’s agenda. Director of development and engineering services Marvin Kwiatkowski said staff will have an update on the city’s proposed restrictions of marijuana grow-ops when council meets on July 16. The new medical-marijuana growing rules, which council agreed to take to public hearing in November 2012, would ban pot growers from doing their business in residential areas. Instead, grow-ops would be

restricted to industrial lands and required to meet a list of environmental and safety regulations. While a public hearing was originally supposed to take place earlier this year, Health Canada — which administers the federal government’s Medical Marihuana Access Program — decided to make its own sweeping changes to how medical pot would be produced at around the same time. The city has been waiting for those changes, which strip individual users of the right to grow their own supply in favour of a system of larger licensed producers. New regulations were

released on June 19. Kwiatkowski said he’s not anticipating many changes will be made to the city’s rules because of the new federal regulations, noting a public hearing could take place in late July or August. The Kamloops restrictions were controversial when first announced. Some growers argued moving their crops onto industrial land would be prohibitively expensive. However, homeowners who live next door to some of the growers said they are facing major property damages and health risks because of mould produced in household growops.

The National Felons League hits the police blotter again


ET ANOTHER National Football League player has been arrested on suspicion of murder and a continent emits a collective yawn. Aaron Hernandez is a star tight end with the New England Patriots who just signed a $40-million contract extension with the club. Unfortunately, the hulking Hernandez will likely be making pennies cleaning potties rather than making millions meandering to the end zone as he is charged with shooting to death his friend, Odin Lloyd, and suspected in two other murders in 2012. According to the San Diego Union-Times’ NFL Arrests Database (which can be viewed online at http://, there have been at least 38 NFL player arrests this year for something more serious than a speeding ticket. These include Hernandez’s murder charge, Cleveland linebacker Ausar Walcott’s attempted murder charge and Adam Jones’ assault charge for allegedly hitting a woman in a nightclub (the latest in a string of criminal charges against the Cincinnati cornerback, who for some reason continues to receive second, third and fourth chances by various teams). There seem to be so many charges (assault, drug possession, DUI, failure to pay child support) and so many players that the perceived all-encompassing criminality of NFL players becomes like white noise. Because pro athletes are celebrities, an arrest makes the headlines.


MUSINGS When Hernandez or another player is arrested for murder, it dominates headlines in newspapers, on TV, on radio and on the Internet. When 23 people are slain in crimeinfested Camden, N.J., in the first six months of 2013, not one of the 23 killings will approach the media coverage given the Hernandez case. No celebrity, little span of coverage. While it may appear as though the NFL is a league rampant with crime, the arrest rate of its players remains far below the national average in the U.S. According to Stephen Bronars of Bronars Economics, the arrest rate for NFL players has averaged about 2.9 per cent compared to 10.8 per cent for men ages 22 to 34, based on FBI crime data by age for men in 2009. Another interesting piece of data revolves around which players are more likely to be arrested. Wide receivers accounted for more than one of six arrests, cornerbacks accounted for about one of seven arrests and linebackers accounted for one of eight arrests.

On the other side of the crime spectrum are the small punters and kickers, accounting for one of 82 arrests, and those big offensive guards, accounting for one of 98 arrests. All of which helps pinpoint what these guys would do if, tomorrow, pro football was banned in the U.S. Obviously, punters and kickers would become real-estate agents (hello, Paul McCallum) or accountants. Offensive linemen would be saltof-the-earth guys sweating it out on a construction site. Quarterbacks (pivots without the Ryan Leaf and Michael Vick genes) would still shine — they simply have “it” and, even without football, would wind up with some fantastic job, making a load of money. Wide receivers would be serving time for various infractions, mostly involving DUI offences. Cornerbacks would be their cellmates, serving time for a variety of transgressions, mostly involving spousal assault. Linebackers would be in the cell across the way, serving time for a potpourri of offences, mostly involving beat-downs at nightclubs. Running backs would be in line at the government office, filing for bankruptcy as the number of childsupport demands hits double figures. Of course, they would need to take a number and wait their turn — behind the lineup of NBA stars.

Canadians from coast to coast to coast have just celebrated the 146th anniversary of our great nation’s founding. There is much to celebrate. Earlier this year, Canada was ranked the third-best country in the world to live by the Organization for Economic Cooperation (OECD) and we are consistently ranked high in the United Nations’ Human Development Index. By any metric you choose to measure, Canadians enjoy a standard of life far above that of the rest of the world. However, sometimes it seems we Canadians don’t realize how good we have it. For the majority of Canadians, our claim to citizenship is merely by an accident of birth — we are the lucky few who started life in a society so prosperous — one that values peace, education, and public welfare. Few of us have ever gone without. If you ever want to truly understand just how good we have it here, talk one of the seven-million Canadians who came here from elsewhere in the world. For Canada’s immigrants, being a part of this great nation was a choice, one that likely brought with it not only great hardship, but great reward. No one has a greater appreciation for what Canada has to offer than new Canadians. It hasn’t always been an easy transition, however. In the past, when cultures clashed in Canada, what resulted was unjust and often violent. But just as it is important to celebrate the great achievements of our forefathers on Canada Day, it is equally important to remember the many the dark chapters in our collective history, so that we might learn from them and ensure they are never repeated. Episodes such as the Japanese internment, the Komagata Maru incident, the Chinese head tax, and the residential school system still resound today. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, which is why we as Canadians must remain ever vigilant to ensure such injustices don’t occur in the future. Today, as always, Canada is a nation of immigrants. It is what makes us unique, and it is what makes us great. And we are all the better for it.

Re: Story: Kamloops Mounties warn of stranger danger: “She should not have let him in, but offered to place a call for him.” — posted by Gabrielle Reck Bekkvang

Re: Story: Kamloops man charged with strangling cat: “I have been following the case of Captain, the German shepherd killed by its owner. “This isn’t unique. “Actually, it is happening more and more. “I believe people who kill defenceless creatures who trust them (and likely fear them) need to face stiffer penalties. “They need to know this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated. “Letting these people off sends a message it is OK and who knows what these people will attack next for a thrill or in uncontrolled rage? “It may be a child!” — posted by Andrea Steen Macina “Torturing animals, starting fires and bedwetting are the triad of serial killers in the making!” — posted by Susan Kearns

Resiliency remembered Editor: I appreciate KTW publishing on June 27 the Making the Best of a Bad Situation essay by TRU student Kayla Holtslag. As the daughter of a British Columbia-

born man of Japanese descent who was interned, I know the importance of this part of Canadian history. I believe this experience and the impacts it created deserves to be studied and restudied

from all perspectives. Resiliency is a human capability we need to know more about. Thank you. Lyn Arikado Kamloops

Where are the facts? Right here Editor: On May 22, letter writer John Drayton (‘Where are the facts to back up mine claims?’) questioned points I raised in my letter of May 15 regarding the proposed Ajax mine (‘Believe science over corporate spin’). To answer Drayton’s, questions regarding references, here is a list of some of the websites easily found regarding the health risks and environmental impacts of open-pit copper mines. • Acid mine drainage and the effects on fish, health and ecology. • Lists the levels of copper, selenium, lead and cadmium in forager bees. • Environmental Investment Organization lists Europe’s best and worst carbon polluters. • Declining bee populations and Rio Tinto. • Technical and advocacy information about threats to public health, water, air quality, fish and wildlife habitat and

community interests. • Critics claim mineral exploration in B.C. needs more accountability. • Myanmar farmers complain of health problems and environmental destruction, chemicals in water, dying crops, high cancer rates and loss of beneficial insects. • Blacksmith Institute, based in New York, and Green Cross, based in Switzerland, lists the most-polluting mines. • Water pollution caused by mining. • Pollution, mining and the Great Lakes. • The World Bank notes acid-mine drainage is one of the most serious problems in mining and has severe and permanent effects on the environment leading to extinction of various reptiles and amphibians. Joyce MacPherson Kamloops

Editor: Re: Christopher Foulds’ column of June 25 (‘Trying to keep our kids safe does not equal ‘victimblaming’): As a parent and grandmother, I’ve had a good bit of experience with young people and I have realized over the years our children’s safety relies, first and foremost, with the decisions we, as parents, make in allowing our adolescents to experience life independently. Independence is not a defined milestone to be handed over to young people at age 16, 17, 18, etc. It takes a lot of time, patience, parental guidance and, sometimes, disciplinary measures before adolescents develop the maturity, cautionary survival skills and good judgment to function independently without parental oversight. The same holds true for adolescents who turn 16 and can claim the right to apply for a driver’s licence. Not all 16-year-olds are emotionally mature to handle the responsibility of driving and it is the parents’ responsibility to make that decision. I feel parents have a similar responsibility to their children regarding grad parties or any other situation that could pose unacceptable risk. That said, I was horrified to read about the Barnhartvale gathering of youth for grad celebrations, where a young girl was sexually assaulted. My heart goes out to her and her family for the trauma she suffered and the emotional scars she will carry for a lifetime. I truly hope the offender is caught and brought to justice quickly. Kudos to KTW editor Christopher Foulds and Kamloops-Thompson school district assistant superintendent Karl deBruijn for their realistic comments on the harsh realities of today’s society. To letter writer Caitlin Dick (Noble) (‘Society needs to focus on telling our sons not to rape,’ June 25) — wake up! Everyone is assumed to have a reasonable amount of common sense and self-preservation. There is nothing positive about a mob of unsupervised young people drinking alcohol and partying. The site was chosen for its remoteness and lack of supervision. Many of those young people were underage, but I am sure they still had access to alcohol. That is fundamentally wrong on so many levels, yet these young people (who think they are ready for independence) accept this as being OK. If that’s the case, they must also be prepared to accept the risk/outcome of those decisions. In my day, it was called the school of hard knocks and was sometimes better at instilling life’s lessons than any lecture. Marjorie Miconi Kamloops

Hitting the road without really hitting the road By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

Benjamin Bermiller is going on tour. Sort of. It depends on your definition of the word “tour” as it relates to musicians. Bermiller, an 18-year-old Kamloops singer-songwriter, is embarking on a 10-show tour — six of them in Kamloops and the remainder within a two-hour drive. Another thing you should know about Bermiller’s tour is that each show will be played at a coffee shop. “I’ve played a lot of bars prior to thinking of this idea

and one thing that I noticed about my music is it doesn’t really reach a big bar crowd,” the Beattie School of the Arts grad told KTW. “People go to the bar and they want to dance and drink — it’s not a bad thing — and it doesn’t really translate.” Plus, Bermiller said, staging gigs in coffee shops will allow his friends to check out his music. “They’re all-ages venues and a lot of my friends aren’t of age,” he said. “And I’m a huge coffee drinker, so being in a venue like that after the show is nice.” X See ‘OK’ A11

JAMES ‘JIM’ STANLEY WADDINGTON Born: November 5, 1947 Passed in: Kamloops, BC, Canada Passed on: June 26, 2013 at RIH Jim was born in Vancouver BC on November 5th, 1947. He married his life partner Audrey in December 1967 and together they raised two adoring sons Ken and Guy Waddington. Jim will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was quick with a joke or a smile and loved to laugh. He worked hard his entire life and, most recently ,found a passion for instructing with Calfrac in Grand Prairie AB. When he was home, he never failed to amaze with his practical wood working and mechanical application. He enjoyed playing cards, reading, John Wayne movies, country music, and spending time boating whenever possible. Jim will forever be missed by his wife Audrey Waddington, sons Ken (Cindy), Guy (Tracy), grandsons Spencer, Eric and Brooke, granddaughter Chloe. Also left to cherish his memory are his sisters Danella (Denis), Mickie (Ken), Judi; his brother Stephen (Julie); and many nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Rev. Stanley and Marjorie Waddington, and his sister Denise. There will be no service just a small gathering of the immediate family in remembrance of love and life. The family would like to extend their thanks to the EMS attendants, medical staff at RIH emergency room, Veteran Affairs, Dr. Du Preez and Dr. Calder.

If I Knew 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.

Down with Us The Unique Wines of the Shuswap

By Jake Ootes, Celista Estate Winery British Columbia’s wine industry is making big inroads into non-traditional growing areas - among them: the Shuswap, Kamloops, Lillooet, Creston, the Kootenays, Grand Forks and Lytton.

Have you ever looked through a black-and-white film negative, fascinated by the inverted image it reveals? If so, you’ll probably be equally fascinated with the latest exhibition at the Kamloops Arts Council’s Wilson House Gallery. Negative is a collection of digitally inverted photos, explor-

ing the art of digital negatives. It is aimed at engaging the audience with a unique representation of the world. The result challenges, alters and often confronts the viewer’s perception of reality. “Taking pictures allows me to engage more profoundly with the places I travel and interact

Bermiller, who described his music as rock/folk with some Motown and jazz influences, said he’s spent his first year post-high school trying to launch a career in music. “It’s gone well,” he said. “The first year out of high school seems like a growing period and it’s been really enlightening for me. “I’m stepping into this summer saying, ‘OK, this is what I need to do.’” For more on Bermiller and to hear some of his music, search his name on Facebook or visit benjamin-bermiller.

Of course, we consider the Shuswap the most exciting of the areas. While some consider this a young growing region, it is in fact perhaps as old as the Okanagan. Grapes were planted and growing in Salmon Arm in the early 1900’s, perhaps preceeding plantings in the Okanagan. I am told by Hans Nevrkla, former owner of Larch Hills Winery, the grapes that were grown in and around Salmon Arm at least ninety to one hundred years ago were mostly used for juice. Salmon Arm was identified as a great fruit growing area and a fruit packing plant was once located at Canoe.

All of the wineries of the Shuswap, since they were established, have produced award-winning wines in regional as well as national and international competitions, confirming the wines compete successfully with wines from throughout the country. The success of the vineyards and their resultant wines is a testament to the suitability of the area as a grape growing area, for as the saying goes “the wine is made in the vineyard.” The Shuswap has the distinction of being the most northern grape growing area in British Columbia. Hence, Celista Estate Winery, located on the North Shore of the lake at 50.57 degrees latitude, is likely the most northern in North America.

Opened on July 2, 2010 the winery is now entering its fourth year of business. The first acre of vines was planted in 2002 with an additional three acres added over the next four years, and three more acres in 2011, for a total of seven acres. The vineyard and winery are located on the south facing slope of a160 acre farm in Celista purchased by my wife Marg and I in 1995. We were then located in Yellowknife, Northwest It wasn’t until some ninety or so years later that the first commercial winery was Territories and when we retired from our Arctic life in 2005 we had determined to established. In fact, the first commercial expand the vineyard and eventually open winery in the Shuswap was developed a winery.

Music in the Park celebrating 20 years Music in the Park’s 2013 schedule starts tonight (July 2), and it marks the beginning of the annual event’s 20th year. The original concert series was launched in 1993 to celebrate the Canada Summer Games and is now the longest-running music festival in Kamloops. The free event has run outdoor concerts for two months every summer for the past 20 years and has entertained more than a half-million people in its history. “I’d like to acknowledge all the people who help bring this great summer tradition to life, in particular

Henry Small, who does an incredible job of organizing the entertainment.” said Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar. “Henry has assured me that this year will feature one of the strongest lineups of entertainment by local, national and international musicians.” BCLC is the longest-running sponsor, supporting the event since its inception. This year will also include a special celebration of the 20-year milestone as BCLC is featuring a Midsummer Music Jam at Music in the Park on Aug. 1. The Music in the Park schedule is available online at events/musicinthepark.

Choosing the right d daycare for f peace off mind i d Caregiving for the youngest members of society, babies and toddlers, is growing in scope and possibilities. In addition to a safe and nurturing environment, parents looking for daycare services may want much more for their child’s first crucial years of development. Once they decide what they want from a daycare, parents should shop around for the right place for their child. One of the best ways to find a daycare is by a referral from someone who is satisfied with their daycare provider. If that’s not possible, the community health unit may have lists of local daycare providers. Daycares can be public or privately owned. Parents

should visit a daycare in person to see the facilities, and ask about licences, daily routines, programs and activities for the children, snacks and meals, discipline and rewards policies, and how first aid and emergencies are handled. Is a trial period possible? Other parents who use a daycare can provide good feedback about the quality of services offered. If the daycare discourages such discussions between parents, this is a good sign to look elsewhere. Communication is an essential ingredient to monitoring the needs of the child. There should also be a good communications policy between parents and the child care provider.

Providing Excellence In Montessori Education Since 1988

Asking child care providers why they are working in this field, what they hope to accomplish with the children, and future career goals, will help parents decide if they’ve found a partner in their child’s education. The ratio of children per caregiver is also important to determine the level of supervision. Other questions could centre on outdoor activities, educational activities, and social interaction between younger and older children.

Ever wanted to LRN2SK8? It’s an inarguable fact — skateboarders are cool. If you are one, congratulations. If not, here’s your chance. After a successful tour in 2012, West 49’s LRN2SK8 — which translates roughly to “learn to skate” in parentspeak — is back, bigger and better, this summer. It’s a 35-stop cross-Canada tour, and the Kamloops event is one of just eight of 27 remaining that is not fully booked. The LRN2SK8 program provides participants with a full West 49 skateboard experience in an enclosed mobile skatepark, including the Astro Kik Ollie competition and Element Drop Spot obstacles. Managed by eventSing Promotions, which has more than a decade experience in packaging and producing national action sports events, this program is designed to help youth develop their confidence and skateboard skills and will provide participants with a legitimate skateboard experience in a supervised and safe area.

From prize giveaways, sampling opportunities and a mobile skate park set up with all the equipment necessary to develop an individual’s skateboarding abilities, the LRN2SK8 program is a great opportunity for kids across Canada to really have a true skateboarding experience with access to course components like rails, ledges, ramps and flat bars. The program will include the following elements: Mock classroom lessons where trick description and the history of skateboarding will be reviewed, Build-a-Board Workshop learning how to install bearings and apply grip tape and small group lessons aiding in individual progression execution and analysis will be taught with

skate-educated seasoned riders providing the lessons. The Kamloops event will take place on Tuesday, July 30, in the Aberdeen Mall parking lot, and is open to skateboarders ages five and up. The Kamloops event will take place in three sessions — 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Waivers must be signed on site by a parent or legal guardian. The classes will end with a graduation ceremony and each skateboarder will receive a certificate for participating and completing the program. It’s free to attend, but space is limited. To register, go online to

Run with the Pack this summer The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack is once again hosting dozens of McDonald’s Sport Camps to keep Kamloops kids of all ages active this summer. Camps have already begun and run on a weekly basis through the end of August. There are options for young athletes from age four right up to 18. Sports offered include basketball, soccer, ball hockey, golf, racquet sports, volleyball, baseball, flag football, ice hockey, water sports, fishing and rugby. There are also multi-sport camps and the Junior Wolf Cub Camp for youngsters between four and six years old. Prices range from $115 to $240 per week, with a few exceptions. Depending on the sport, week and age group, some camps run in just the morning, the afternoon or the evening and others are of the all-day variety. TRU also offers early drop-off and late pickup — 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. — for parents whose work schedules don’t line up with camp times, at a cost of $5 per half-hour. A new addition for 2013 is Competition Weeks. Taking place in weeks 3 and 7, all campers — excluding golfers, who will be out on the links — will get the opportunity to work on teambuilding and friendly competition through fun and exciting relay races on Wednesdays. TRU’s sports camps are completely nut free, and each camper will receive a McDonald’s lunch on their Friday camp day. All campers will have supervised lunch hours each day, and will be issued a camp shirt and hat upon registration. Parents will receive discounts for signing up for multiple weeks, to the tune of 15 per cent for each additional week. In addition, children of TRU employees will

Celtics land Olynyk in draft deal By Michael Potestio BLACK PRESS

“With the 13th pick in the 2013 NBA draft, the Dallas Mavericks select Kelly Olynyk from Kamloops, Canada and Gonzaga University. Kelly is not here this evening.” Those were the words of NBA commissioner David Stern as he announced the pick at the NBA draft in Brooklyn on Thursday, June 27. Olynk made history as the first Kamloopsian ever taken in the NBA draft. The South Kamloops secondary grad was drafted by Dallas and immediately traded to the storied Boston Celtics. No, Olynk wasn’t in attendance. He was watching from his Kamloops home with family and friends as Stern announced his name and hometown. “It was a special time, to spend it with all the people that supported you and really been there for you your whole life, growing up, and really got me to where I am today,” Olynyk said. “It was real nice and real special to be able to celebrate that with them and share that moment with them.” When asked how he felt being the only Kamloopsian to ever be drafted into the NBA, Olynyk smiled and, with a laugh, replied, “it’s cool. “To be able to be in this community and how much support this community has given me over the last five, six, seven years, it’s been huge,” Olynyk said. “It’s great to look back and be able to give back to the community and come out and pave the way for young people growing up to really chase their dreams and aspirations and see that

JC Lipon of the Kamloops Blazers was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in Round 3 of the NHL Entry Draft, held on Sunday, June 30, in Newark, N.J. Allen Douglas/KTW

it is quite possible.” Olynyk said he got where he is today through hard work, dedication and sacrifice, which the people who supported him in his youth instilled in him, allowing him to pursue his dreams. Kelly’s father, Ken Olynyk, said it seemed fitting his son, who wears No. 13 on the court, would be taken 13th overall in the 2013 draft. He said the house exploded with jubilation when Kelly was drafted and they celebrated with alcoholic and non-alcoholic champagne. “I think that, as a father, I’m really pleased to see what he’s accomplished because he’s willing to work hard,” Ken said. When his son was seven years old and said he wanted to play in the NBA, Ken asked Kelly to have a backup plan. “But, that’s been his goal since he was seven years old and he never lost sight of that,” Ken

said, adding there were trying times that jeopardized that goal. It was a big night for Canadian basketball as Canadian forward for Anthony Bennett of the University of NevadaLas Vegas also made history by becoming the first Canadian selected first overall in the NBA draft. “It’s huge,” Olynyk said. “I mean, for Bennett to do that, I mean that was amazing. I almost got just as excited to hear his name [as] number one as [I was] mine,” Olynk said, noting the selection is great for Canadian basketball, which he described as “on the rise.” There were some twists and turns in the draft for Olynyk with the pick and trade by Dallas. The Mavericks sent Olynyk to the Celtics for Boston’s 16th overall pick and two future secondround picks. “I knew a little bit about what was going

on behind the scenes through the agents and stuff, but it was fun,” Olynyk said. “It was fun to see it all unfold and I can’t be happier to be in Boston and it’s a great place, great city with great tradition — such a storied franchise — and I’m really looking forward to it. “It’s a blessing to have this opportunity. It’s what you work for as a kid your whole life,” he said. “It’s every little kid’s dream to play in the NBA and to have that opportunity. I feel special and real blessed.” Olynyk said Celtics management told him they were excited as well to have him joining their organization. He said he will need to adapt to the faster, more physical NBA game. Boston general manager Danny Ainge told CBS News he sees Olynyk in the powerforward position. “He’s a really good complementary player,”

Ainge told CBS. “He’s not a go-to guy, he’s not a star player, but he’s a really good teammatetype player. He complements other guys.” Olynyk redshirted during his sophomore year at Gonzaga and returned to dominate with the Bulldogs, being named West Coast Conference Player of the Year while leading Gonzaga to a No. 1 ranking in the NCAA last season. Olynyk admitted the feeling of being drafted still hasn’t completely sunk in. He planned to spend a few days in Spokane — home of Gonzaga — before heading to Boston on Canada Day. Olynyk’s focus will then turn to the NBA Summer League. “It’s been a great experience so far and it’s the beginning of a new journey,” he said. “One door closes, another one opens, so it’s truly an exciting place and exciting time.”

Lipon, Ully join the NHL Two Kamloops Blazers heard their names called at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft in Newark, N.J. on Sunday, June 30. The Winnipeg Jets used the last pick of the third round — 91st overall — to take Blazer winger JC Lipon, who enjoyed a breakout WHL season in 2012-2013. Lipon, who turns 20 later this month, put up 36 goals and 53 assists for 89 points in 61 games last season. He was also a member of Canada’s team at the World Junior Hockey Championship. The Regina native was passed over in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. In the fifth round, the Dallas Stars selected Blazer left winger Cole Ully 131st overall. Ully, an 18-year-old from Calgary, put up 50 points in 62 games with the Blue and Orange last season, while finishing the year with

a plus-27 plus-minus rating. The Stars are owned by Tom Gaglardi, who is also the majority owner of the Blazers. Eight WHL players heard their names called in the first round at the Prudential Center — the most since 2009, when nine took the stage in Round 1. Seth Jones of the Portland Winterhawks was the first Dub player selected — fourth overall by the Nashville Predators — and was the first of five WHL defencemen picked in the top 30. Edmonton Oil Kings centre Curtis Lazar was the first WHL forward selected — 17th overall by the Ottawa Senators. Medicine Hat’s Hunter Shinkaruk was selected 24th overall by the Vancouver Canucks and Regina Pats’ forward Morgan Klimchuk was picked 28th overall by his hometown Calgary Flames.

Reeves of WolfPack joins national junior women’s team heading to world championships Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s basketball coach Scott Reeves will help out with the Canadian junior women’s basketball team this summer. He was recently named a performance analyst for the national team, which will compete at the FIBA Under-19 World Championships in Panevezys, Lithuania, in July. “I am very excited about this opportunity to work with our U19 national team and be a part of a world championship,” Reeves said. “It’s is going to be a terrific professional development opportunity and anyone in our profession would love the chance to represent our nation on the world stage.” Reeves attended a training camp that began on Friday, June 28, in Oshawa. South Kamloops secondary graduate Emma Wolfram is attending the camp and will start her NCAA Division 1 career with Gonzaga University this fall. The head coach of the junior Canadian women’s team is Rich Chambers of Port Moody.

Grey Cup fever already in Regina


T WILL BE cold and it will be festive and a lot of booze-filled fans will be feeling neither pain nor a chill on Nov. 24, when the two best teams collide in the Grey Cup game on the Mosaic Stadium turf at Taylor Field, but the big question is: What colour uniforms will the players on the field be wearing? People from Carlyle to Lloydminster, from Hudson Bay to Cadillac will be hoping that at least one of the teams is wearing green, because that would mean their beloved Roughriders are in the annual Canadian Football League classic in their own backyard. The Grey Cup will be held in Regina for only the third time in the league’s 101-year history and, if the Green Riders are in the big game, they will have pulled an upset or two along the way. Saskatchewan got off to a good start with a 39-18 drubbing of the hometown Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday, June 29. Riders’ fans, of course, always think every year is their year but, if the Western representative in the Grey Cup is not the B.C. Lions, there will be many surprised fans in the other nine provinces. Then again, the Leos’ disappointing 44-32 loss to the

BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW Stampeders in Calgary in Week 1 might have tempered the enthusiasm of some who pegged B.C. to go all the way. In a quarterbacks’ league, the Lions have, in Travis Lulay, the league’s best pivot. He was recently ranked as the secondbest player in the league in a poll of football writers and broadcasters and was joined by eight of his teammates on that Top-50 list. (No. 1 was Chad Owens of the defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts.) Only the Montreal Alouettes, led by QB Anthony Calvillo, had more on that Top 50 list (10). A couple of other interesting story lines as the CFL season gets underway involve the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. One of the questions about the Bombers is this: Are they as bad as their pre-season record would indicate (24-6 and 52-0 losses)? And, will their fancy

“Quote, unquote” • Snipped from Ian Hamilton’s column in the Regina Leader-Post: “Several U.S. senators sent a letter to the Washington Redskins, asking them to change their name. “In a perfect world,” scribbled comedy writer Alex Kaseberg, “the Redskins write back: ‘You’re right, it is an awful and disgraceful name we should be horribly humiliated by and ashamed; it conjures up memories of a truly

criminal history. From now on we are the District of Columbia Redskins.’ “ • AP golf writer Doug Ferguson on final day fashion at the U.S. open: “(Billy) Horschel wore pants with octopus prints, and he putted like he had eight arms.“ • Golf writer Dan Jenkins on Twitter, as reported on “Charl has made three bogeys and a double in his last four holes. In South Africa, that’s known as Schwartzeling your pants.” • Greg Cote of the Miami Herald: “Tim Tebow signed with the Patriots. ‘Belichick owed me a favor,’ explained Jesus.” • The Sports Curmudgeon: “Absent a situation whereby Tom Brady undergoes multiple amputation surgeries, there is no way Tebow is going to ‘compete for’ the starting QB role (with New England).” • Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle: “Pablo Sandoval is too short. His weight of about 270 would be fine if he were seven feet tall. So he needs to grow 13 inches or lose 50 pounds.” • Comedy writer Jim Barach: “Joe Torre’s daughter caught a baby that fell from a secondfloor fire escape in Brooklyn. Major League Baseball will issue a


statement congratulating her just as soon as she is tested for PEDs.” • R.J. Currie of “Kobe Bryant of the Lakers isn’t sure he’ll be ready for the start of next season. He’s recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon and a strained coaching relationship.” • Another one from Currie: “Hayley Wickenheiser says the University of Calgary helped her get a degree by planning exams around her hockey schedule. In response, NCAA athletes have said, ‘Exams’?” • Brad Dickson of the Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald, not impressed with Louisville’s uniforms at the College World Series: “Players look like they came from a garage sale at Lady Gaga’s house.” • Headline at “Tiger Woods back to not being back.” • Blogger TC Chong, on Ottawa’s new CFL team, the RedBlacks: “Their logo will be a checkerboard.” • Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel, on the poor play in the finals by Miami’s Chris Bosh: “Does Bosh actually get a championship ring or just a participatory ribbon?” Care to comment?

new stadium, Investors Group Field (IGF), be the kickstart they need to return to respectability? The Bombers are coming off a season where they missed the playoffs and had by far the worst point differential (minus 155) in the league. The jury on this Bombers’ season is still out, with Winnipeg having lost 38-33 to the juggernaut Alouettes in the first regular-season game played at IGF on Thursday, June 27. In Regina, though, the fans have Grey Cup fever — and it’s only July. So, what else is new? Riders’ fans always think their team is going all the way and, this year, they hope they’ll get to see it unfold right before their eyes on Nov. 24.

A four-decade love affair with Harley By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER

H Kelowna Harley enthusiast Don Edwards (left) and Kamloops Harley-Davidson owner Al Perrett get familiar with Edwards’ new set of wheels. Edwards bought his first Harley from the Kamloops dealership more than 40 years ago and, last month, returned for another. Dave Eagles/KTW

E HAS BEEN IN LOVE WITH MOTORCYCLES SINCE THE AGE OF 12 — AND THE LOVE AFFAIR HASN’T ENDED YET. Don Edwards recently made the trip from his Kelowna home to Kamloops to pick up his newest ride — a shiny CVO Breakout model Harley Davidson. Edwards has owned more than 10 motorcycles through the years, both new and old. When it comes to buying new, however, he has a special connection to the Kamloops area. More than four decades ago — 41 years, to be precise — he bought his very first new motorcycle from Al Perrett, who is now owner of Kamloops Harley Davidson. Edwards admits he likes his bikes to be a little unique, with them often being limited edition and

hard to come by. Perrett has always found what Edwards has been seeking. “They have always treated me well there,” he said. Edwards keeps up with his childhood passion by riding across British Columbia and taking the occasional trip to Calgary. Out of the last 10 bikes he owned, Edwards said the Rocker C has been his favourite. Being his first Harley, he loved the look of the bike and enjoyed its comfort throughout his rides. That was just one of the factors he considered when choosing his second bike of the Harley family. “I saw it advertised and loved the look of it,” said Edwards. Edwards decided to trade in his Rocker for the Breakout and is looking forward to putting some miles on it as he hits the B.C. highways.

Last week I got to test drive the new 2013 FORD ESCAPE. I really like the new sporty look! I was amazed at how powerful it was, especially for a 4-cylinder Ecoboost vehicle! It had a lot of kick, but it still handled very smoothly. And best of all, EVERYTHING was voice-activated: the super detailed navigation, easy hands-free phone, 5 different music options, and climate controls. I could ask it for almost anything, and it would do it! Crazy!!

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

This brake light is from the future Ford has participated in a special test of a high-tech early warning brake light that can warn drivers following behind even if they are around a bend or behind other traffic. The technology is one of 20 potential future systems Ford tested as part of Safe Intelligent Mobility (SIM), a four-year joint industry research project in Germany. In emergency braking situations, the experimental electronic brake light transmits a wireless signal to illuminate a dashboard light in cars following behind. The study found the technology could enable drivers to brake earlier and potentially mitigate or avoid a collision. The SIM field tests involved 500 test drivers in 120 vehicles — including 20 Ford S-MAX models. Testers logged more than 41,000 hours and almost a million miles on public roads and an enclosed test track in Germany. Ford used specially-equipped Ford S-MAX models to help test the potential of car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication. Also tested was an obstacle-warning system, which alerts to the presence, position and type of potentially hazardous objects in the road, and Traffic Sign Assistant, which keeps in contact with traffic management centres for up-to-date information.

Late-season fishing is always good if anglers are hardy enough to brave the changingg weather. It’s common to hear Tunkwa mentioned in the Kamloops fishing shops as a prime destination well into November. Fishing ends with the seasonal closure on December 1.

is one of southern BC’s most popular fishing lakes. Found on a rolling plateau in the Interior grasslands, Tunkwa Lake offers anglers beautiful scenery and a diverse, challenging sport fishery. Each year, Tunkwa Lake is stocked with more than 35,000 rainbow trout. In 2006, 15,000 of stocked fish were “triploid” rainbow trout, a strain of non-reproductive rainbows that grow bigger than usual. Fish to 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds) are possible at this lake, with catches in the 1 kg to 1.4 kg (2 lb to 3 lb) range common. Tunkwa Lake is essentially one big shoal covered with aquatic vegetation that supports abundant populations of trout. Anglers target the lake’s corners as well as the back channel at the west end. The productive capacity of the lake can make fishing a challenge. With so much natural food to choose from, anglers need to be on top of their game to entice trout away from the real thing. The action starts on May 1, when the lake officially opens. Ice-off usually occurs several days to a few weeks before, depending on the winter. Early spring fishing on Tunkwa Lake

can n be difficult because water temper temperatures are still cold. For the dedicated angler, however, there is tremendous opportunity as trout often congregate in shallow water to feed. Fish small chironomids and leeches tight to the banks, cast spinners from shore or dangle a worm beneath a float just over the bottom. The action heats up as the sun heats up. By late May and early June, fly anglers can expect days with intense action as trout key in on the lake’s abundant hatches of chironomids, mayflies, damselflies and dragonflies. Shrimp and leeches are also abundant. Chromies, black-and-red beadheaded chironomids in size #12 to #14 and maroon micro-leeches are good flies to start with, but watch carefully for insect hatches in different sizes and colours. Fly-fishing slows during the hot summer, although anglers who troll flashers and big spinners still do well, attracting the attention of big trout when fly anglers mysteriously cannot. The tide turns in August, however, when a big hatch of “bomber” chironomids rise from the lake bottom to take wing. Flyfishers with flies up to 2.5 centimetres (one inch) can have spectacular days.

FACILITIES : Within Tunkwa Lake Provincial Park, a 350-site campground provides a spot (including multi-party camping spots) for $14 per night. Tunkwa Lake Resort offers visitors and guests a small convenience store. A boat launch and day-use area, at the lake’s south corner, are also available. There is an engine power restriction of 10 hp (7.5 kw) and the lake is closed to fishing from December 1 to April 30. DIRECTIONS: From Kamloops, take Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) to the Logan Lake exit (Meadow Creek Road). Drive 24 km to just past the town of Logan Lake and head north on Tunkwa Lake Road for 15 km to the park. Access is via good paved roads and signs clearly mark the way.
