Below-average ﬁre season expected to heat up By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A decade ago today, Kamloopsians were sweltering through a heat wave that had seen daily highs rarely dip below 30 C. The city — and the Interior — was resigned to another hot summer, blissfully unaware that, within a week, one of the worst wildfire seasons to hit the area was about to erupt. From the first spark that started a massive wildfire in McClure on July 30 to the spreading devastation that devoured homes in Kelowna in the weeks that followed, 2003 is likely remembered for evacuations, smoke and tired, heroic firefighters. This year’s fire season is a long way from
that time, said Michaela Swan, a fire-information officer in the Kamloops fire centre. As of July 24, the centre had dealt with just 106 wildfires, well below the 10-year average of 243, Swan said. By this point in 2009, for example, there had been 428 fires and, just before the conflagration broke out in 2003, there had been just 236 wildfires by this time. In 2011 — one of the quieter seasons for the centre, Swan said — there had been just 94 fires. In terms of land this year’s crop of fires has engaged, the total to this week is 1,684 hectares, also down from the 10-year average of 2,546. However, said Kayla Pepper, another fire-information officer with the Kamloops
centre, the expectation is the numbers will start to increase substantially — perhaps by this weekend. “We haven’t seen any lightning storms yet,” Pepper said, “but we’re expecting them to start this weekend.” Experience has shown that, at the end of the fire season, which officially begins April 1, the total number of fires that will be fought will be split evenly between personand lightning-created. To date, however, the majority have been person-caused, she said. The fire rating remains high in Kamloops and at extreme in other parts of the centre, Pepper said, and the tinder is dry. “We’re expecting the drying trend to continue.”
The Kamloops Fire Centre stretches from the northern border of Wells Gray Park near Blue River to the United States border to the south, and from the Bridge River Glacier west of Gold Bridge to the Monashee Mountains east of Lumby. Based out of Kamloops, it employs 47 permanent staff and a large number of seasonal support staff, including dispatchers and firefighters. Of the 234 highly trained seasonal firefighters, 81 are members of three-person initial-attack crews. They are usually the first deployed to a fire and travel by either helicopter or truck. The other 140 firefighters are divided into seven 20-person crews that generally work on larger fires.

Trudeau continues conversation on caring again B.C. And local Liberals are hoping it inspires more to join the party By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
It was a smaller crowd than the one that filled the Thompson Rivers University Grand Hall in January, but Justin Trudeau’s second appearance in Kamloops may have more long-term payoff for local Liberals. The federal Liberal leader made a stop at a barbecue in Riverside Park on Tuesday, July 23, as part of a summer tour of the Interior that took him through Vernon and Kelowna this week. About 200 people turned out in 35 C heat for hotdogs, handshakes and a short speech from Trudeau, who hit on familiar themes of overcoming cynicism in politics, struggles of middle-class Canadians and a need for change. “The reception I’ve gotten all across Interior B.C. these past few days, people are coming up at events like this not to say, ‘Wow, we’re all going to vote Liberal,’ but to say, ‘There’s got to be a better way of doing politics’,” Trudeau said, calling the federal Conservative government “mean-

spirited” and blaming it in part for dividing Canadians. But, he said, the reception he’s had on his tours across the country suggests Canadians can still be enthusiastic about politics. “Even in this time of tremendous cynicism, hundreds of people
all over the Interior, including here in Kamloops, are coming out because they want to be part of something better,” Trudeau said. Tyler Carpentier, who organized the barbecue for the KamloopsThompson-Cariboo federal Liberal riding association, said it looks
like at least some of Trudeau’s fans are interested in joining his party as well. “Today, we’ve signed up a lot of members. We figured we’d have maybe a handful of members, but our estimates just have been blown out of the water,” said Carpentier as party volunteers made the rounds with clipboards and sign-up sheets. “By 5:30, we had more than six signed up and we’d barely gotten started.” While Trudeau’s first speaking engagement in Kamloops during the Liberal leadership contest brought out a crowd of 600 in January, Capentier said it didn’t translate into many new local Liberals. “We were just happy to get people out,” he said. “Trying to get people talking about politics is pulling teeth and we were just happy to get people out to engage in that sort of discussion. “This event, we wanted to get people involved in what’s going on, let them know they cannot only be a part of the party but a part of the change that’s happening.”
Program mines First Nations success in mining industry An association that connects First Nations people with job training says it’s helped to contribute more than $53 million to the B.C. economy over the past three years. According to a study released by the British Columbia Aboriginal Mine Training Association (BCAMTA), employed graduates of its programs are making an average salary of almost $53,000, a steep increase from candidates’ average salary of $13,700 before training. The wage is also higher than the $44,500 average entry-level wage of mine employees in the province. BCAMTA CEO Laurie Sterritt said the cost of training one First Nations person is just under
$15,000, but economic spinoffs from the training and from income and indirect taxes can amount to more than $100,000 per person. “This isn’t a one-time boost to the economy,” she said. “This will grow as candidates get pay raises and move up the ladder.” The association offers training for more than 100 types of mining-related jobs, including administrative and human-resources positions. According to the study, 1,533 candidates have registered for training through the program since April 1 2012 and 500 are now employed full-time in the industry. Sterritt said the program has long-term benefits for B.C.’s aboriginal communities.

She said secure employment bolsters’ selfesteem and, in the long run, could help with various health and social issues. “How’s that for an investment?” she said. The program is funded by First Nations and industry contributions and with federal funding. So far, the federal government has contributed $6.68 million, which will keep the program running through 2015. Sterritt said the association is looking for new corporate partners and hopes the federal government will continue to fund its work when current support runs out. “I hope we’ve shown there’s real value in what we do,” she said.
deﬁcit tops $1.1 billion By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS firstname.lastname@example.org
The B.C. government finished the last fiscal year with a deficit of $1.15 billion, according to the audited public accounts released Tuesday. That’s up from $968 million that was projected as the deficit last year, an indication of the difficult task facing the government to balance the budget in the current year. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said the government reduced its spending $668 million in the fiscal year ended March, compared to what was budgeted. But resource revenues, mostly natural gas, were down $1.1 billion from the 2012 budget. Health care spending was up $585 million, education spending rose $300 million and social services spending went up $50 million compared to 2011-12. Total program spending increase 2.6 per cent, higher than the target of two per cent de Jong has set for this year. Deficits and continued spending on capital projects pushed the province’s total debt up $5.6 billion to $55.8 billion. “We’ve seen the largest debt increase in the history of British Columbia,” NDP finance critic Mike Farnworth said. “And this is a government that ran around during the election campaign saying it’s going to be debt-free B.C.”

Healthy landscapes... healthy living Watering Properly for Plant Health Plants in the landscape are constantly defending themselves from enemies. Pests prefer plants that are stressed and one of the most common causes is improper watering. Proper watering for your landscape will depend on soil type, weather, location, wind exposure, and type of plants. Lawns: Water your lawn deeply and thoroughly, but infrequently. This means watering 1 - 2 days per week, but when you do, give your grass about 2.5 cm (1") of water. An empty tuna can is approximately 2.5 cm deep. Place several cans at different distances from your sprinkler and time how long it takes to fill the can. Water this length of time once or twice per week during the summer. Reduce this time by up to half in the spring and fall. To determine when to water your lawn, step on your grass. If it readily bounces back, no watering is required. If it takes awhile to recover, it’s time to water, and if it lies flat, then you’ve waited too long. Landscape beds: To determine when to water your landscape beds, squeeze a handful of soil. If it forms a ball and is slick, then there is no need to water. If it forms a crumbly ball, then it is time to irrigate, and if it is too dry to form a ball, then you’ve waited too long.

Hungry bears tested by new garbage bins By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
The specially designed garbage can could bare the bears— even after an day of pushing, pawing, clawing and gnawing. The B.C. Wildlife Park tested the container on Tuesday, July 23 in the presence of media, business representatives and a few curious spectators — all to see if the bears could be kept out. The bins, created by Ontario company TyeDee Bin, had undergone two successful unofficial testings before the Tuesday event — including one involving 800pound polar bears. While he would not say the bins were completely bear-proof, Gary Jonsson, the company’s sales and distribution manager, said he trusted his product enough to climb inside himself. “Bears are amazing creatures,” he said. “You never know what they are going to do.” The park’s animal-care staff explained they had spent the previous few days cutting back on the bears’ diets enough to ensure they would be hungry but not enough to cause them stress.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, park staff inspected the bins to ensure there were no sharp edges or other variables that could harm the three black bears. The bin was bolted to a concrete slab and filled with breakfast.
Park staff explained the food inside the bin was their normal meal and what might be found inside garbage cans. However, as incentive, the bears were given more of their favourite items, including grapes and peanut butter.
Make Your Home Safe for Independent Living Are you a low-income senior or a person with a disability who wants to live safely and independently in the comfort of your home? Do you have difficulty performing day-to-day activities? Does your home need to be adapted to meet your changing needs? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program. Find out today if you are eligible and if you meet all of the requirements as a low-income homeowner or as a landlord applying on behalf of an eligible tenant.

Peanut butter was also spread over the parts of the bin viewed as vulnerable. Once released, Hamilton, the park’s 300-pound male, along with Numees and Tuk, the 200-pound females, did their best to get to their meals. Tera Guider with the park’s animal care department said the testing is not cruel or harmful to the animals. She explained that, because they are already in captivity, staff isn’t worried about the bears becoming accustomed to eating out of bins — and the activity of trying to open them is stimulating. “It mimics actions they would be doing out in the wild,” she said, because bears normally turn logs and rocks trying to see what’s inside or underneath. The bears could be sen licking and chewing, pushing and bumping and, at some points, climbing on the bin in an attempt to get to the food. The park has already received two other requests for this kind of product testing since it is the only location in Canada certified to do this. However, as the program is just
HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities
Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

beginning, park staff are unsure if it will happen this year. Park general manager Glenn Grant said the test Tuesday was a success. He said reports it will generate extra revenue for the park are wrong, however; the program generates enough to just cover its costs. The real benefit is the contribution to conservation, Grant said, and reducing the bear-human conflict potential. Guider said plans ato repeat the tests but they need to allow for a gap so that the bears don’t get bored with the challenge of trying to break into the bins. “If we do it too often they might lose interest and that will impact the results,” Guider said. “Who knows? They might be great and be able to do it after just a couple weeks’ rest.” Staff must also keep in mind the animals’ habits, she said, noting it would be silly to book a testing when the bears are preparing to hibernate and are not active. Guider explained staff will continue to closely watch the bears and, if they stop enjoying the tests, will consider ending the program.
easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.

the start, instead of rushing to meet the government's artificial deadline to install smart meters, Horgan said. BC Hydro reports that 60,000 smartmeter installations have been delayed due to customer request, while 1.8 million or 96 per cent of customers now have a functioning smart meter. Some people believe the radio signals from smart meters are a health hazard, although experts have said the periodic meter signals represent a tiny fraction of the radio frequency
Customers who accept a deactivated smart meter will also pay a fee of about $100 to have it adjusted. The fee to keep a mechanical meter will be higher because it will require a separate system to manually record and bill for power consumption, Bennett said. NDP energy critic John Horgan said he is pleased the proposed fees will be reviewed by the B.C. Utilities Commission before being implemented. The opt-out provision should have been made available from
â€œFresh, Healthy, Localâ€?
â€œWhy Buy Tools Anywhere Elseâ€?
People who insist on refusing new wireless electrical meters can keep their old mechanical meter â€” as long as it lasts, if they pay a monthly fee, Energy Minister Bill Bennett said. Customers can keep their mechanical meters until they break down, their Measurement Canada accuracy seal expires or the customer relocates, the ministry said in a statement. The mechanical meter option is added to an earlier compromise with BC Hydro customers who still don't have a digital smart meter, which transmits power consumption and status via radio signals. Customers can have a digital meter with its transmission function turned off or keep their old meter, as long as they pay the cost of having the meter read manually. Bennett said that cost will be about $20 a month.
â€œWhen somebody's analog meter wears out, stops working or comes to the end of its useful life, there are no analog meters to reinstall,â€? Bennett said. â€œYou can't buy them anywhere.â€?

So how many LNG plants will really be open by 2018?
AM NOT PRONE TO BEING CONFUSED — AT LEAST NOT YET — BUT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN OUR AUGUST GOVERNING BODIES LEAVE ME FEELING SO. One example is the newly reelected BC Liberal government. During the year-long re-election campaign, Christy Clark promised one operational liquified naturalgas (LNG) plant on the North Coast by 2015 and three by 2020. But, when post-election she appointed Rich Coleman as LNG supremo, that schedule was gone. That made perfect sense to me. Parties seeking to govern promise all sorts of things but, if successful, are often quick to forget those promises. That, for better or worse, is politics. Then, the provincial government brought down its June budget update and went where even it had not bravely gone before when it came to projected dates for operational LNG plants in B.C. I refer specifically to the top right hand corner of page 54, from which I will quote at length. “The Ministry of Natural Gas Development engaged independent consultants to conduct studies examining the potential employment impacts and new provincial revenues from LNG development in B.C.” So far, so reasonable. Then came this. “The studies assumed five LNG
MALCOLM BAXTER Newsroom
MUSINGS plants . . . and most plants fully operational by 2018.” Let’s be kind and interpret “most” as being just three, the minimum number that allows you to use that word. So, we went from three operational by 2020 to three operational by 2018, two years earlier? Huh? Did I miss something? But, the confusion level really cranked up when I read a submitted article by Supremo Coleman in the July 2 edition of the Kitimat Northern Sentinel. Right now, there are three proposed LNG plants in Kitimat — BC LNG, Kitimat LNG and Shell’s LNG Canada. Coleman says BC LNG “could become the first facility to export LNG from BC’s north coast.” I don’t disagree and it should be able to hit the new 2018 target with time to spare. On Kitimat LNG, Coleman describes it as “moving forward,” but sidesteps putting any date on it. Let’s be generous and assume Chevron/Apache are able to sign
up customers and give the project the green light within the next 12 months. That should allow it to hit the target date as well. Two down, one to go. But, that one — LNG Canada — will miss the target, according to Coleman. “The facility could begin exporting LNG in 2019”, he says, but even then, adds “provided all timelines are met.” So, logically the third-plantby-2018 the budget update talks about must be in Prince Rupert. That is one heck of a stretch, given those proposals all have to get an export permit, get through the environmental-assessment process, consult and accommodate First Nations, find customers — and then build the facility. I don’t think for one minute Coleman believes that can be done in just five years, which is doubtless why he never mentioned the budget update target in his article. So, on the one hand, the government — through the budget update — suggests one thing but the man in charge of actually bringing home the LNG bacon says another. Hey, wait a minute, it’s not me that’s confused — it’s the government. Which makes me feel much better. Retired Kitimat Northern Sentinel editor Malcolm Baxter now calls Terrace home.
They’re called smartphones but the way some people use them is anything but smart — giving us all legitimate cause for concern about public safety. A new poll showing 64 per cent of adults in B.C. own a smartphone also reveals about 18 per cent of those who do consider themselves “strongly addicted to the device.” Predictably, the majority who placed themselves in that category describe their addiction as “manageable.” It’s a rare addict, after all, who acknowledges their addiction is galloping out of control. That all changes, of course, when the addict is faced with incontrovertible evidence — usually some severe crisis or tragedy — that calls for an immediate change in behaviour. The question is, should we, as a society, be expected to pay the price of such a crisis — particularly when it’s something like an accident caused by inattentive driving? According to the poll, those who who describe themselves as addicted estimate they spend an average of 2.5 of their waking hours staring at their diminutive keypads and screens. If those 2.5 hours were spent in one block of time, it might be a different matter — but it’s spread throughout the day, usually while the users are multitasking. We should all be more aware of the dangers such devices present and make sure we are controlling them, not the other way around. There is always the temptation to make just one short call, check that one detail, complete that half-finished text or glance at that incoming message.

Bepple needs a geography lesson Editor: Re: Letter to the editor (‘Bepple on FCM’s northern, remote group’): The northernmost incorporated municipality in Canada is Pond Inlet. It is home to 1,549 people; Kamloops has a population of 85,678. Pond Inlet has 1.81 per cent of the population of Kamloops. Pond Inlet is 3,140 kilometres (as the crow flies) and 2,449 kilometres north of us, in Nunavut. Pond Inlet is closer to Greenland than it is to Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut (which, by the way, is 1,454 kilometres north of and has eight per cent of the population of Kamloops). In Pond Inlet, a gallon of milk costs about $15. In extreme northern communities, most amenities are run by co-operatives, things like grocery stores, department stores, post offices, hotels, etc. People from the south simply cannot conceive living in a part of the world where capitalism is so ineffective that most neccesary services cannot survive as for-profit ventures. Remote and northern communities face issues for which people from more densely populated urban areas in the south have no frame of reference — the issues are completely unique. Claiming Kamloops is a remote or northern community is nonsensical, even when playing the “relative” card. By that logic (or lack of), a Porsche is a cheap piece of junk when compared to
a Ferrari. Kamloops is the seventh largest municipality in British Columbia. It is classified as a city, not a town, a village, or even a hamlet. Relatively speaking, when compared to the rest of Canada, Kamloops is a large municipality. There are 5,600 municipalities in Canada, of which Kamloops is the 59th largest in the country, putting us in the top two per cent for population. I’m not sure where Coun. NANCY BEPPLE Nancy Bepple gets the idea the majority of Canadians live in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Approximately five-million people live in those cities combined and, even when referring to the metropolitan areas of those cities, that’s a total of fewer than 12 million combined — nowhere near the majority of the population of Canada. However, all of these population statistics are spurious since the words “northern” and “remote” do not, by definition, refer to population size or density but rather to geographical location in relation to other cities and/or the southern border
of our country. Kamloops is approximately 170 kilometres from our southern border. Since Canada is 4,634 kilometres from south to north, that hardly classifies us as a northern community. Our proximity to the border, the Lower Mainland, Vernon, Merritt, Kelowna and dozens of other towns and villages, both incorporated and unincorporated, removes us from the list of remote communities. If Bepple is concerned with issues regarding electricity and mining in the TNRD, she should run for a TNRD position or find a committee with a group that directly relates to that issue. By serving on this committee, Bepple is not only doing the people of Kamloops an injustice, she is also doing the people of the actual remote and/or northern communities damage by helping to create policy she knows nothing about. If Bepple has a personal interest in helping remote communities, that is laudable. It’s something of which I wholeheartedly approve. I have many family members in extremely remote communities and would love for them to get the support they so desperately need and deserve. Doing it on the Kamloops’ taxpayers dime is not admirable or ethical. Bepple should be spending her own time and money on it (even if she didn’t get a big enough pay raise in her councillor salary). Caroline Dick Kamloops
Is cost of another ministry name change more poverty? Editor: Recent news reports state B.C. is tied for last place for worst child-poverty rates in country. In B.C., a single mom/dad with one child receives $375.58 a month for support and a maximum of $570 for shelter, while a foster parent receives $803.82 for a child aged up to 11 and $909.95 for those ages 12 to 19. While that does not seem like a big difference, foster parents
have already budgeted for their housing and utilities from their paycheques, whereas the single parent on income assistance has that amount to live for the entire month to cover housing, utilities, food and the needs of the child. Income assistance has not raised its rates since April 1, 2007, while foster parents had their rates raised on April 1, 2008 and April 1, 2009. The government still expects a child
to be provided for the same way when they are returned as when they were in foster care. Premier Christy Clark has announced a core review of all government programs after the May election that aims to reduce government spending by $100 million over two years. Again, Clark wants a core review of all government programs. Let’s talk budget constraints. Some ministries change their names after every elec-
tion. Has anyone ever questioned how much this costs? These ministries have to replace all their stationery, brochures and signage on their doors just to name a few costs. Since 1996, there is one particular ministry that has changed its name eight times. Millions and millions of dollars spent for what? No one has ever been given a good reason. What about the bonuses the minis-
ters, deputy ministers and assistant deputy ministers receive for meeting their budget cut — budget cuts that have and will continue to affect our children. What good reason have we been given for B.C. being tied in last place for worst child-poverty rates in country? None — and this will continue if we do not voice our concerns. Paula Ciardullo Kamloops

Recycling? There’s an app for that Finding your closest recycling depot is a few clicks away with the new B.C. Recyclepedia smartphone app. Developed by the Recycling Council of British Columbia, in partnership with the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation, the free app is a quick and simple tool that helps users find over 1,000 drop-off locations and recycling options for over 70 materials or products across
British Columbia. Download the latest version of B.C. Recyclepedia App, which now includes 37 new materials such as furniture, organic materials, building materials, textiles, and new products covered under stewardship program expansions for electronics, small appliances, electrical equipment and lighting products. The app is available for both iPhones and Androids.
Do you want to feel so good about yourself that you smile ear-to-ear like this woman? Well, then you should start recycling at work.
Your work environment In 2013, the environment is a constant subject of conversation. However, when we leave our homes, we tend to forget certain ecofriendly lifestyle habits. Indeed, it is interesting to see how much people vary their behaviour from one place to another. Careful recycling at home often becomes less important at work just because recycling facilities are often non-existent. Here is an excellent opportunity to become the person who makes all the small but necessary efforts in order to provide everyone with an eco-friendly work environment. So, make a few suggestions to your boss. These could include setting up recycling points around the workplace or in the lunchroom, or exchanging non-recyclable meal containers for reusable or compostable dishes. Discuss these changes with your work colleagues in order to find a few willing partners who can help you organize these projects and ensure they run smoothly once they are established. Of course, you’ll need plenty of motivation to take the first big step but, once this is done, you’ll be overjoyed with the results of your efforts.

No preference given for provincial ferry bidders By Tom Fletcher

BC Ferries has received approval to construct three new medium-sized vessels — and the B.C. government is leaving it up to the corporation to decide where they are built. “Certainly we’d be very supportive of the ships being built in British Columbia,” Transportation Minister Todd Stone said. “Government does not have the purview to dictate to BC Ferries who can and cannot participate in their procurement process. “That’s internal to BC Ferries.” BC Ferry commissioner Gord Macatee announced approval Tuesday to replace two old ferries scheduled for retirement in 2016. The 48-year-old Queen of Burnaby serves the Comox-toPowell River run and the 49-year-old Queen of Nanaimo sails on the Tsawwassen-Gulf Islands circuit. BC Ferries also

announced it will invite qualified bids for two replacement ships with capacity for up to 145 vehicles and 600 passengers. A third with room for 125 vehicles and 600 passengers will be used for peak-season service on the Gulf Islands run and replacement duty when the other two are undergoing maintenance. Qualified shipyards will be invited to bid, with a contract to be awarded by January 2014. Brian Carter, president of Seaspan Shipyards, which operates facilities in

North Vancouver and Esquimalt, said the announcement is “great news for B.C. Ferries and great news for the overall marine industry in the region.” Seaspan is five months into design work, with construction due to start next year on a contract to build vessels for the Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Coast Guard. The company will assess its capacity to take on such a B.C. Ferries contract once it determines the specifics of the request, Carter said. In terms of competing against foreign
firms, he said the federal shipbuilding program is giving the company and the B.C. industry in general more competitive capabilities every day. BC Ferry CEO Mike Corrigan said the focus is on cost savings and standardization of vessels, many of which now have different deck heights and dock requirements. The last major contract was for three Coastal-class ferries, completed by a German shipyard in 2007 and 2008. They now serve the main Vancouver Island runs. Corrigan said BC
Ferries will examine whether new ships can be run on liquefied natural gas instead of diesel. That increases the construction cost, but fuel savings are projected to pay for themselves in as little as eight years. Provincial legislation requires the BC Ferries Commissioner to approve capital expenditures. The order for these ferries specifies that construction must be open to a pool of bidders, and that food and retail services on board must not be subsidized by fare revenue.
Losing weight has never been easier
After suffering a back, knee, and hip injury, I had given up all hope of losing the excess weight that I had put on in the past 8 years. When Powertone opened, I was excited that I could finally do some form of exercise which didn’t further aggravate my injuries and cause me more pain. I was very confident that this would work for me because I knew Irene from her health studio in Richmond and had been a steady client of Margaret hers for over 15 years. She is very professional, Very satisﬁed customer knowledgeable, and customizes the exercise program to achieve the best results for every individual. She also combines specialized body treatments for spot reduction. I was not disappointed! I started going to Powertone Health Studios twice a week, followed a healthy nutrition plan, both of which fit easily into my busy schedule. In 2 months, I had lost over 40 lbs*, went down 3 sizes and feel fantastic! I have more energy and a zest for living that I never thought possible. I don’t find myself bored with Powertone and actually looked forward to it because not only did it firm my body, but I feel really good afterwards. I highly recommend everyone to try Powertone……it can give you a new lease on life! *Results will vary depending on body type and meal plan.

Warrant issued,Wilvers arrested again Trevor Michael Wilvers was arrested on July 21 after a warrant was issued following an incident on Saturday, July 20. Kamloops RCMP Const. Cheryl Bush said police were called to a home on Salish Drive at about 9 p.m. that day, when a man had entered, producing a knife and escaping with a sum of money. No one was injured. Wilvers had been in Kamloops provincial court two days earlier on charges relating to a shooting in a Brunner Avenue residence where a woman in the basement suite was hit in the arm. He was released on a serious of conditions, including a prohibition he not be in Kamloops after 1 p.m. on July 20, except for court appearances, he reside in a designated Langley residence and abide by a curfew.

Government plans repaving, more inspections for part of Highway 5A There will still be commercial trucks, but drivers on a 23-kilometre stretch of Highway 5A will soon have a smoother ride. The province plans to resurface both lanes of the highway between Nicola Lake and Stump Lake Ranch this summer. The project will go out to tender this week. Earlier this month, Transportation minister and Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone ruled out a commercial-truck ban on the
highway, saying safety improvements and more enforcement hours should be enough to keep fatalities and crashes down on the roadway. Stone said despite the reputation that stretch of highway has for being an accident hot spot, the government has reviewed statistics from a safety review earlier this month that show serious collisions involving commercial vehicles are on the decline. Stone has also committed to doing more safety inspection enforcements in the area.

‘You would think they would know a person with antlers all over has guns in the house’ By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Bill Smith was returning home from coffee with friends as he did every morning. Things appeared normal on Sunday, July 21, when he backed his pickup into the driveway of his Schubert Drive home at 7 a.m. Smith, who has been teaching firearms courses for over 40 years, had a course scheduled for the following weekend. So, when he noticed two adult-sized bikes laying on his driveway, his first thought was that some students had been confused about dates. It wasn’t until he noticed movement from within his house that he knew something was wrong. Smith called 911 and waited quietly outside for police to arrive. It took only minutes for the first police car to arrive and it was at that time the suspects bolted out the broken back window through which they had apparently entered. Smith said that he had all his windows and doors doublelocked as he usually does. “I guess it doesn’t make much good to lock the windows if they are just going to break it anyway,” he said. Police were unable to catch

Detroit has what it takes to rise again
S IT HAPPENS, I WAS IN DETROIT THIS MONTH. I went to see the art and the architecture, domains in which Detroit is still one of the richest U.S. cities. It’s broken and it’s broke and, now, it’s bankrupt, too. But bankruptcy is actually a device for escaping from unpayable debt. All over the world, Detroit’s bankruptcy is being used as an excuse to pore GWYNNE DYER over what’s someWorld times called “ruin porn” — pictures WATCH of the rotting, empty houses that still stand and the proud skyscrapers that have already been torn down. There’s even a self-guided tour of “the ruins of Detroit” available on the Internet; people take a melancholy pleasure in contemplating the calamitous fall of a once-great city. Two-thirds of Detroit’s population have fled in the past 50 years, but there were specific reasons why Detroit fell into decline — and there are also reasons to believe that it could flourish again, not as a major manufacturing centre, perhaps, but “major manufacturing centres” probably don’t have a bright long-term future anywhere.
There are other ways to flourish and Detroit has some valuable resources. The events that triggered the city’s decline are well known. Large numbers of African-Americans from the southern states migrated to Detroit to meet the demand for factory workers during and after the Second World War. Being mostly unskilled, they started in the worst jobs — and, even after they had acquired the skills, they stayed in low-paying jobs because of racial prejudice. Spurned by the unions and victimized by a racist police force, they eventually rioted in the summer of 1967. Brutal policing made matters worse and hundreds were killed, but the worst consequence was the fear the violence engendered. The great majority of whites just left left town. I first went to Detroit a couple of months after the riots and, driving into the city, the fear was actually visible. The traffic lights are spaced far apart on Woodward Avenue and, as each light turned green, all the cars would accelerate away — and then, if the next light was still red, they would slow more and more until they were barely crawling, but dared not stop for fear of being attacked. Then, finally, the light would turn green, and they would race away through the intersection — only to go through the whole process again as they approached the next light. It was this unreasoning fear that caused the
CLARKE On July 19th 2013, Robert David Clarke passed away at the age of 92. Bob was a kind, witty, generous, and warm man who leaves behind many who love him: wife Anita Clarke, daughters Sharon Mirtle (Gary) and Donna Almdal (Tim), sister Pat (Philip) as well as grandchildren Brett Mirtle (Tracey), Jennifer Mirtle and great-grandchildren Jarrett, Ethan, and Addison Mirtle. When Anita joined the family 26 years ago, Bob gained two new children in John Penner (Bonnie) and Diane Schmidt (LaMont) along with grandchildren Jeffrey Penner (Amanda), Alison Sales (Pete), and Mallory Sperling (Landen) to whom “Grandpa Bob” was the only grandfather they knew. Bob was born in Leyton, England in 1920 to David and Daisy Clarke. In 1926 the family made the journey to Saskatchewan where they settled for a few years before moving to the Arrow Creek area of BC. Bob began work in Southern Alberta on a ranch until enlisting in the Army in 1942 where he was stationed in Europe until 1946. Back in Canada, Bob settled in Toronto where he met Marie Kashluba and they married in November 1947. The majority of Bob’s working life was spent in Kamloops with the Department of Highways. Bob lost Marie, his wife of 32 years, in 1979. In 1985, Bob retired and met Anita Penner whom he married in 1987. The two enjoyed travelling throughout North America in their small RV. In his retirement, he loved to play golf, curl, and watch the Blue Jays play baseball. Bob was predeceased by his brother Vic and sisters Olive and Joan. In lieu of ﬂowers donations may be made to Eagle Bay Camp, the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice, or a charity of their choice. The memorial will take place on Saturday, July 27 at Kamloops Alliance Church, 233 Fortune Drive, at 11 am. Schoenings Funeral Service 250-374-1454 schoeningfuneralservice.com
massive “white flight” to the suburbs and the hollowing out of Detroit. The big automobile companies also took flight and the new car plants were built elsewhere. As the jobs disappeared and the population dropped, the tax base fell even faster for most of the people left behind in the city were poor or unemployed African-Americans. The city could no longer afford to provide good police or medical services, so even more people left. This vicious circle has lasted half a century, exacerbated by much corruption and maladministration. This month’s declaration of bankruptcy is a brutal measure, for much of the debt being repudiated is the pensions of city employees, but it may give the city’s government enough leeway to begin rebuilding public services. If they are restored, much else could follow. Let me explain what brought me to Detroit early this month. We were doing what we dubbed the “Rust Belt Art and Architecture Tour” — driving from Buffalo to Cleveland and then to Detroit, ending up in Chicago. All these cities took a beating as the industries they were built on died or moved overseas (except Chicago, which is “too big to fail”). But, three generations ago, when they were the industrial heartland of the United States, they were very rich — at just the right time. The first decades of the 20th century were the heyday of Art Deco, the most beautiful
architectural style of the modern era. That was also the period when newly rich captains of industry could scoop up bucketloads of new European and American art, impressionist, expressionist, abstract, the lot — and they lived mostly in what are now the Rust Belt cities. They filled their homes with best of modern art and, in the end, donated most of it to the local art galleries. Even in Detroit, where so much has been lost, more than half of those buildings are still there. So is all of the art. Other cities would kill for these assets. In a post-industrial economy where people have more choice about where they live, they are assets that can actually attract population — especially since, in Detroit’s case, the people who left didn’t go far. Most of them are still out there in the suburbs. Detroit’s population has fallen from two million to 700,000 over the past 50 years, but the metropolitan area’s population has stayed stable at around four and a half million for all of that time. The job, really, is to bridge the devastated middle ring of low-income Detroit housing and reconnect the outer suburbs with the city centre. Detroit can rise again. It just takes the right strategy.

STELLA MONTESANO It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful mother, Stella Montesano on July 17, 2013. Surrounded by her family Mom died at the Ponderosa Lodge after a year-long battle with cancer. Mom’s memory will live on in the hearts of her ﬁve children, Carol Tennessy, Penny (David) Marr, Angela (Don ) MacPherson, Henry (Liselotte) and David (Nicole); grandchildren Tim, Jordan, Steve, Alex, Markus, and Anna-Marie; four great-grandchildren; brothers Peter and Donnie, and many nieces and nephews. Stella was predeceased by her husband, Henry, in 2006. She was also predeceased by her parents Peter and Ksenia Toporowski, brothers Stan and John, and sisters Helen, Mary, and Natalie. Mom was born in Krakow, Poland on September 20, 1926 and moved to Canada with her family shortly thereafter. They settled in Paddockwood, Saskatchewan where Mom spent her early years. The Toporowski family relocated to Prince Rupert, B.C. when Mom was 18. It was there that she met and married the love of her life, Henry Montesano, and where her ﬁve children were born and raised. Mom and Dad moved to Kamloops in 1992 to be close to their grandchildren.
Stella’s greatest loves were family, friends, food, gardening, and occasional trips to the casino. Mom embraced her role as a grandmother and loved any opportunity to attend her grandsons’ school and sports events. She loved her home and made it a welcoming place for those she loved. Mom appreciated her wonderful neighbours on Tantalus Court as well as her close circle of women friends.
We think of you in silence No eyes can see us weep But still within our aching hearts Your memory we keep
The family would like to thank Drs. DuPreez and Gabriel for their support and compassionate care. We would also like to acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff at Ponderosa Lodge who treated Mom with such dignity, kindness, and respect until her death. Thanks also to the wonderful staff at Royal Inland Hospital who tended to Mom during brief stays over the past few years. Mom always left the hospital with feelings of admiration and gratitude for the excellent care provided by the health care professionals she encountered. A memorial mass will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, July 27th, 2013 at Sacred Heart Cathedral with Father Andrew L’Heureux celebrant. A celebration of Stella’s life will follow in the Vista Room at the Coast Kamloops Hotel on Rogers Way. In lieu of ﬂowers donations can be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation in Stella’s memory. Schoenings Funeral Service 250-374-1454 schoeningfuneralservice.com

It’s possible for your brain to improve with age
F YOU HAVE been a regular reader of our column you know we preach good brain health as a foundational step to good mental health, so you already know there are steps to take to keep your brain healthy: Eat right, take supplements if required, develop loving and supportive relationships, exercise, and so on. A great deal of attention has been given to the science of the aging brain because of the huge threat of dementias and other brain conditions putting a strain on our health and economic resources and some of this effort is paying off with new ways to look at the aging brain. George Burns who performed on stage past his 100th birthday said, “You can’t help getting older but you don’t have to get old.”
Dr. Helen Kavretsky from UCLA’s Department of Psychiatry agrees, and said in a recent article that we should work to train our brains to function better as we age. According to Kavretsky, the key to a better-functioning brain is to learn something new each day if possible — study a foreign language, take dancing lessons or pretty much anything that requires you to focus your grey matter on a new skill or new information. Even educational programs on television is too passive to engage your brain in healthy exercise. The Alzheimer’s Society provides12 ways to improve brain

Heat fusion Tight-knit squad off to PCSL playoffs By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
EDICATION goes a long way and the Kamloops Heat women are proving that this season. “I’ve always got 22 or 23 players showing up at eight o’clock twice a week ready to work their asses off for two hours,” said Kelly Shantz, the Heat’s head coach. “The core of this team is its heart and its commitment.” Kamloops moved up to the Pacific Coast Soccer League’s Premier Division last year and qualified for the post-season, losing in penalty kicks in a semifinal tilt with the Fraser Valley Action, who went on to claim the title. The Heat are back in the playoffs, set to compete this weekend at the 2013 Challenge Cup — the league’s four-team championship-deciding tournament in Coquitlam. Reaching the final will be a tall task, with the River City girls slated to play the Peninsula Co-Op Highlanders of Victoria in the semifinal round on Saturday, July 27. Peninsula (13-12) finished 18 points ahead of Kamloops (5-3-8) in the regularseason standings. Attending training twice weekly and playing games on the weekend might not seem like much for Shantz to ask of his players, but it’s the nature of the league that makes it impressive. The PCSL women’s Premier Division is
a nine-team amateur league featuring squads from the Interior, Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. Some of the teams, including the Heat, are comprised mostly of women who play university soccer in the fall. Of the 23 players on the Heat’s roster, only eight of them will not suit up for the TRU WolfPack in September. It would be easy for the students to take the summer off — either to work, travel or go home to family — but they have bought into the idea that playing in the PCSL will give them a leg up come university kick-off. “On the weekends, you have to give up a lot in the summer,” said Heather Lloyd, a TRU graduate who led the Heat in scoring this season with nine goals, four of them bagged in one game. “A lot of the fun stuff you want to do, you have to pick your priorities and be here instead. “It improves your skills so much just playing for a few months in the offseason.” Practice attendance was not as strong for the Heat men, who just missed the playoffs in their inaugural Premier Division season. Shantz has seen record numbers at training since the
Heat women left the Reserve Division two years ago. “We always had trouble getting enough players to travel because it’s a big commitment to go on a weekend and take two days off and go to Vancouver and stay in a dusty hotel and maybe spend a few of your own bucks,” Shantz said. “But, now, everyone — the reserves, the subs, the kids who haven’t played a lot — is on board. They don’t quit.” Many of the Heat’s women grew up playing together in the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association ranks, including eight 1993-born rep players who Shantz coached to an under-16 national-championship appearance with the Blaze in Winnipeg in 2009. Now in secondyear university, the chemistry those girls developed is paying dividends on the pitch. “So many of us have played together since we were 12 or 13 years old,” said Marlie Rittinger, second in team scoring this season with seven goals. “Just playing for that many years has given us an upper hand on other teams that are thrown together. It’s just how close everyone is.” (Shantz had high praise for the team’s co-captain: “Rittinger is simply one of the best soccer players that’s come out of the Interior in my entire 15 or 20 years being involved.”) TRU backs the Heat as its off-season
Marlie Rittinger of the Kamloops Heat soars above the opposition to claim this ball in Pacific Coast Soccer League women’s Premier Division play earlier this season at Hillside Stadium. The River City squad is competing for the league championship this weekend in Coquitlam, with a semifinal game scheduled for Saturday, July 27. Allen Douglas/KTW
soccer program, supplying sponsorship and cutting cheques to help with the team’s expenses, which, according to Shantz, are between $15,000 and $20,000 each year. The Heat’s bench boss said it is reasonable to believe the club can remain competitive in the PCSL for years to come.
“When you get a tradition, the tradition feeds on itself,” Shantz said. “Hopefully, the younger players are looking at this group and saying, ‘I want to play for the Heat.’ “It’s very sustainable.” No. 1 seed Whitecaps FC (142-0) will square off
with fourth-seed North Shore Girls Soccer Club (7-7-2) of North Vancouver in the other semifinal on Saturday. Peninsula and Kamloops met twice this season, with the Highlanders posting a 4-1 win and the other match ending in a 1-1 draw. Whitecaps FC and Peninsula are the
odds-on favourites to meet in the final, but Shantz is not counting his side out just yet. “I’ve got to tip my hat to Victoria,” he said. “It’s probably going to be more difficult [to reach the final] than last year. “That being said, this may be the best group of Kamloops kids we’ve ever had.”

Daniel Ruddy of Kelowna’s Okanagan Sun gets to this Kamloops Broncos ball carrier behind the line of scrimmage in British Columbia Football Conference play last season at Hillside Stadium. The Broncos are banking on a revamped offensive line to provide more protection in 2013. The season gets underway this weekend. KTW file photo
The Broncos are back By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The playclock is winding down and the huddle is late to break. Offensive linemen rush to the line of scrimmage — 5, 4, 3 . . . time is ticking away — and the quarterback hurries to his position under centre. Fans in the stands become anxious — “Snap the damn ball!” — before finally (2, 1 . . .) the ball is hiked in the nick of time. Dino Bernardo,
president of the Kamloops Broncos, has seen that situation play out at Hillside Stadium, sometimes watching agonizingly as the time-count violation flag is thrown. Stressful and disappointing, sure, but nothing compared to the waiting game he plays with sponsorship each year, knowing the ramifications of not getting the financial snap off in time are much more severe than a five-yard penalty. “Every year, we’ve
seen sponsorship decline, from a peak, where I think we were bringing in $65,000 in sponsorship, to last year, when we were close to $32,000,” said Bernardo, whose Broncos kick off the British Columbia Football Conference season on Saturday, July 27, against the hometown Langley Rams. “This year, it’s looking like it’s going down again and more than ever we need support from
City of Kamloops
the community.” Bernardo said the team is not in immediate danger of folding, but he acknowledged finding support in the form of cash is becoming tougher with each losing season that passes. It came down to the wire in 2012, with a few helping hands jumping on board late and a bacon-saving $15,000 provincial grant providing the Broncos breathing room.

Deeper Bronco roster X From A21
â€œI think a lot of sponsors are starting to wonder if there is going to be light at the end of the tunnel,â€? Bernardo said. â€œLast year, we got a provincial grant and it was a godsend because we probably wouldnâ€™t have made it to the end of the year without it.â€? That grant came in August, after the season had already started. Bernado has again applied, hoping to receive $20,000 this time. Kamloops is entering its seventh BCFC campaign having never made the playoffs or recorded a winning record in franchise history. Each year at this time there is talk of reaching the post-season â€” and itâ€™s no different in 2013. There are reasons to believe the next step can be taken, with a much deeper roster â€” about 20 more players than last year â€” and a core group of veterans leading the Broncosâ€™ charge. Offensively, head coach Duncan Olthuis is thrilled with a new-look offensive line, the key, he said, to any good offence. At this time last year,
Kamloops had seven hogs on the roster, five of whom could be counted on to play regularly â€” â€œThat wasnâ€™t good enough,â€? Olthuis said. There are 12 O-linemen practising with Kamloops these days, at least 10 of them with enough talent to vie for spots in the regular rotation. Quarterback Connor Whitelaw returns to the fold as the centrepiece of an offence Olthuis expects to play uptempo football. Jacob Palmarin is slated to start at tailback and the return of Devin Csincsa will likely bolster the Bronco receiving corps. Linebackers Ben Groenewegen, Grady Chalmers and Paytin Chang will be counted on to carry the load defensively, with a strong group of veterans having graduated from the 21-and-under league or left for the Canadian Interuniversity Sports ranks. Kamloops will play a 10-game regular season â€” three each against the Okanagan Sun of Kelowna and the Chilliwack-based Valley Huskers, two against the Victoriabased Westshore Rebels and one each against the
Rams and Vancouver Island Raiders of Nanaimo. Getting to the next level â€” the playoffs â€” will likely not be accomplished unless the Broncos can start recording wins against teams other than the lowly Huskers. Bernardo would love nothing more than to see that happen this year, knowing what a spot in the post-season would mean to the Broncosâ€™ coffers â€” and to a fan base that has been incredibly loyal. â€œWeâ€™ve constantly said that we have the best fans in the league,â€? Bernardo said. â€œConsistently, we have 500 people at our games. Thatâ€™s after six years of never making the playoffs. â€œWe want to reward them with a playoff appearance this year.â€?
Bronco bits â€˘ Anyone interested in sponsoring the Broncos can email Bernardo at email@example.com. â€˘ The Huskers are in town for Kamloopsâ€™ home opener on Aug. 10 at Hillside Stadium. Game time is 7 p.m. â€˘ More online at kamloopsthisweek.com.

Dr. Bruce Tucker is pleased to welcome
Dr. Marcio Barros to his dental practice. Dr.Barros was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil, the middle child of three brothers. His passion for dentistry began at an early age, when he spent much of his learning about the profession from his motherâ€™s dental practice. It was there that he began to learn the traits of compassion, dedication and self discipline which would aid him in his own efforts to become a dentist.
Upon graduation from the University of San Paulo in 1991, Dr. Barros completed a three year orthodontic programme. In 2006 he moved to Canada to continue his studies and in 2011 completed the International Dental Degree Completion Programme at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Barros recently graduated from UBC with a Doctorate in Dental Medicine. Although he worked as an orthodontic specialist for over 15 years, he was grateful for the additional training he received UBCâ€™s state-of â€“the-art clinic. Dr. Barros will continue to practice orthodontics as well as general dentistry in his new ofďŹ ce in Kamloops.

Alex Ananou is new to Kamloops, but he likes what he’s seen so far. Born and raised in France, Ananou lived briefly in Australia before arriving in Canada almost two years ago, settling in Panorama near Invermere. He’s been in Kamloops since March, and it only took him a couple of months to find a local art gallery — Wilson House Gallery — to show his unique negative photography. “Before I came to Kamloops, I never had the time or the
resources to put everything together [for an exhibition],” Ananou told KTW. “So, this was the first real one for me.” Since Negative opened on July 3, Ananou said he’s received plenty of positive feedback. “It’s been great so far — it’s going really well,” he said. “I’ve been dropping in at the exhibition when I can and, from what I’ve heard, it’s been doing great.” Ananou said he’s sold about a dozen framed photos and has earned some contract work while Negative has been up and run-
ning. “I was very happy with it,” he said. “It gave me quite a bit of exposure here in the local area, as well, which is great because I’m new to Kamloops.” The show is set to close on Aug. 1 — but the negative work will still be on display. Aug. 1 is also the date the Kamloops Arts Council’s Downtown Artwalk launches and Ananou was able to convince his employer — Hotel 540, where he is the guest-services manager — to participate in the event for the first time. “Working there, and hearing
what it [the Artwalk] is all about, I just thought it’s a good idea to combine both of these,” he said, adding the success of Negative has left him with a very positive impression of the Tournament Capital. “I think Kamloops is a good place to start,” he said. “It’s smaller and people are willing to help.”
DOWNTOWN ARTWALK The Kamloops Arts Council’s Downtown Artwalk will run from Aug. 2 to Sept. 3, with a launch party scheduled for Aug. 1. The event aims to pair up local businesses with local art-
B-section co-ordinator: Tim Petruk email@example.com Ph: 250-374-7467 Ext: 234
ists to help increase exposure for both. Works of art will be displayed at various businesses in the city centre — part of a self-guided walking tour for those looking to see what’s on display. The launch party will run on Thursday, Aug. 1, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Art We Are, 246 Victoria St. It is a free, family-friendly event featuring live music from Alamagokus and Keenan Bryce Wilcox.

STREET PERFORMERS The Checkerboard Guy @ the Merchant’s Market — With a comic twist built into such stunts as The Six-Foot Unicycle of Death, The Tight Rope of Death and his signature piece, The Flaming Leap of Death, is it any surprise that The Checkerboard Guy is known around the globe as a Comic Daredevil? Over two decades of manipulating everything from flaming torches, thirteenth century battle axes and even stinky shoes, often while balancing on top of unicycles, tight ropes or unsupported eight-foot tall aluminum ladders (and we’re not talking step ladders here) mean that an incredibly high level of skill is second nature.

Summer salad worth a thousand words
ETTING DOWN THE NOTEBOOK WHERE I STASH IDEAS THROUGHOUT THE DAYS, I SIT AT MY LAPTOP AND BEGIN TO STIR TOGETHER THOUGHTS ABOUT SUMMER. There was the day of walking around downtown that turned my black-andhot-pink flip flops into flop flops. There was my certainty, after pulling DARCIE HOSSACK into a parking spot at a favourite restaurant, Bon and stepping out into APPÉTIT a crunch of sunflower seed husks, that holidayers from Saskatchewan must have been there first. And then, POOF! I can’t think of anything.
mmer sala d
1/2 lb. farfalle (bowtie) pasta, cooked tender 1 baby zucchini, sliced into ribbons with a carrot peeler 1 stalk green onion, very thinly sliced on an angle 3-4 tufts parsley, torn off stalks, finely chopped 1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts, sliced 1/2 cup favourite black olives, sliced 1 recipe confit tomatoes (follows) 2 tsp. white wine vinegar 1 113-g package goat cheese Flaked kosher salt/fresh ground pepper In a large bowl, toss together first 6 ingredients. With a fork, remove confit tomatoes from oil and add them to the other ingredients, allowing the oil clinging to the tomatoes to become part of the dressing. Add white wine vinegar and toss until coated, adding more of the tomato oil as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve goat cheese until plating, then crumble desired amount over each serving.
I don’t know much about my new neighbours, only that they replaced the old neighbours with the ceaselessly barking dog. I know they have eclectic taste in music (anything from reggae to dance to metal to folk). I know they bought new speakers when they moved in — and I know they’ll be considerate and turn them down if I let them know I’m home and bothered. I am both. Today, it’s dance music, muffled by the drywall. But, what I want is to hear the birds. Wind chimes tinkling in the warm breeze. The afternoon’s sun showers. I want to hear the quiet, which is exactly what I was listening to before the music. I send a polite text and, minutes later, the music withdraws back into the wall. I try to find where I left off. Summer. Heat haze. The swaths of waist-high lavender mounds that make our home and environs look and smell like a Provencal garden. The nodding hydrangea and day lilies that are true to their name, unfurling creamy morning t blossoms that, in the evening are half composted b on the stalk, dying so completely on cue they could never be called day-and-a-half lilies or anything but their true name.

At the hummingbird feeder, which I’ve lately moved my desk to see as I work, this year’s hatchlings sit and sip, blissful and ignorant of the aerial skirmishes being fought out by parent birds trying to claim the entire replenishing litre of sugar syrup for themselves. Under physiotherapist orders not to spend more than 20 minutes at a time at my desk, I turn off the fifth such timer of the day and set my laptop to sleep. I leave the house, realizing at once I’ve chosen to mosey out for a green-tea lemonade during the afternoon’s hottest hours, which people in cleverer climates have set aside for siesta. At a busy intersection, a young woman, impeccably dressed and wearing three-inch stiletto heels and no helmet, rides her bike against traffic. I order my iced tea, turn toward home and am soon waving my hands through the lavender, stopping to
admire local honeybees that have thoroughly pollinated these mounds. On the lane, I see our neighbour, smile in greeting, then step through my door to find a house that smells of tomatoes basting in hot oil — and chefhusband putting together a salad with bowtie noodles, goat cheese and ribbons of baby zucchini. It’s a dish and a picture as close to the
feeling I was trying to shape as the words I was using to shape it.

I have a pet, and we need a home... The BC SPCA believes that if landlords were aware of the signiﬁcant beneﬁts of pet-friendly housing, they would be more inclined to offer it. One of the biggest direct advantages of offering pet-friendly housing is increased rental income, since people with pets will pay 20 to 30% more for housing. People with pets also stay longer – an average of 46 months, compared to 18 months for people without pets – saving landlords from having to spend time advertising for, ﬁnding and screening new reliable tenants.

Canadian “Superfood” Gaining International Attention Creator of UMAC-Core™ UMAC-CORE is a unique product created out of an urgent need. In 2004 Tom Harper was diagnosed with a life threatening illness caused by asbestos exposure and given only months to live. He had been raising shellﬁsh at his Research Sea Farm on Vancouver Island, simultaneously perfecting the only method worldwide of growing wild phytoplankton for use in the Aquaculture industry. Based on the wild plankton’s powerful nutritional proﬁle, upon his diagnosis he decided to consume the blend of micronutrients as an energy source he so desperately needed at the time. Every day he ingested the minute ocean plants and every day he felt stronger and experienced less pain. Finally a surgeon performed exploratory surgery. To the doctor’s surprise he was inexplicably able to deliver Mr. Harper a clean bill of health.
Still Defying The Odds
support mood ﬂuctuations, quality of sleep, and overall emotional well-being.
People are even giving it to their pets with remarkable results. In fact, Kim Iles says it’s the results she gets with animals that have convinced her of the product’s efﬁcacy. “It’s not a placebo effect when you give it to your pets. We’ve nursed sick animals back to health with UMAC-CORE. That’s how I judge if a product really works - if you can see results with animals - and we do.”
UMAC-CORE quickly gained far more attention than Harper could have imagined. “People were experiencing really positive shifts in their health,” Harper says. “Our success was consumer driven and we weren’t quite prepared for the demand. There were times when staff would offer to spend the night at the ofﬁce so that we could get the Mr. Harper’s Sea Farm which grows the wild product out, and they often did!” phytoplankton offered in UMAC-CORE is also making a positive impact on the environment. “I Today UMAC-CORE is available in over 800 consider it one on the greenest companies in the health food stores across Canada, in stores world. Not only are we able to give back to human all across the United States and overseas in beings, we are also giving back to the planet.” Australia, New Zealand and Spain. Following Unique Sea Farms’ only by-product is pure the interest and countless testimonials from the oxygen! Marine Phytoplankton consumes carbon public, UMAC-CORE has been written about in dioxide and releases oxygen back into the dozens of newspapers across North America atmosphere as it blooms in the one million litre and the excitement continues to grow.

A great hymn for summer quietness
LMOST ALL HYMNS OF CHRISTIAN FAITH HAVE ORIGINATED FROM RELEVANT ENCOUNTERS BETWEEN GOD AND MAN OR RESONATING SOME SPECIAL OCCASIONS. One of them — Dear Lord and Father of Mankind — is no exception. The writer, John Greenleaf Whittier, a Quaker, was reared in an environment where his family was used to meditative silence. NARAYAN MITRA An obnoxious and noisy You Gotta Have “revival”’ serFAITH vice in particular is said to have moved Whittier to write the poem, wherein he painted the finest picture of true worship in five stanzas: He began with: “Dear Lord and Father of mankind/forgive our foolish ways/ reclothe us in our rightful mind/in purer lives Thy service find/in deeper reverence praise.” No doubt the poet had in mind the story of the Gadarene demoniac, a raving lunatic, crying and cutting himself with stones, as depicted in Mark 5:1-15.
When he saw Jesus, he cried with a loud voice: “Jesus, the Son of the Most High God…” But, instead of accepting his noisy demonic worship, Christ quietened him and healed him. This stanza is a prayer for spiritual sanity instead of call to religious madness. Perhaps it’s a call to go deeper with the Lord, rather than being ostentatious with our personal and church activities. In the next stanza, Whittier wrote: “In simple trust like theirs who heard beside the Syrian sea/the gracious calling of the Lord/let us like them without a word/rise up and follow Thee.” This scene comes from Luke 5:1-11, wherein some fishermen-disciples cried out, “Master, we toiled the whole night and have taken nothing.” Is this not an accurate picture of life itself? We work for present comforts and future security. If we cannot make it by fair means, we are tempted to go into devious ways. In a frantic race with life we miss the very essentials — peace and rest. For the fishermen to leave two boats full of fish in order to follow Jesus was something unusual. They saw something far beyond their livelihood — a new revelation had confronted them.
IMAGINE what would happen if you
told 80,000 people about your
Whittier goes on: “Drop Thy still dews of quietness/till all our strivings cease/ take from our souls the strain and stress/ and let our ordered lives confess/the beauty of Thy peace.” What the poet perhaps was trying to convey is life is not a rat race of running, of activities, seeking fame and popularity. God wants to relieve us from mental breakdowns and grant us His peace. Jesus said, therefor: “Come to me all that labour and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest.” This troubled world of ours hankers for peace. The Christian’s witness for God is an ordered life. Finally, he wrote: “Breathe through hearts of our desire/Thy coolness and Thy balm/let sense be dumb, let flesh retire/ speak through the earthquake, wind and fire/O still small voice of calm.” Here is an illustration from the Old Testament story of Prophet Elijah in 1 Kings 19. At Mount Carmel, Elijah showed his zeal for God by calling down fire from heaven and slew 450 prophets of Baal. But, after all the high dramas, he suffered a breakdown and just wanted to die. He ran a marathon and hid himself in a cave, fearing for his very life. There, God revealed to him that He was not the tempestuous wind or the shat-

tering earthquake, or the devouring fire, but a still small voice. God wants to speak to His followers today as He did to Elijah. But we cannot hear His voice if we are too busy serving Him. Whittier concluded: “Let flesh retire…” Activities without waiting upon God can prove to be carnal. He wants us first to learn of Him, to seek His mind and do His will. Summertime is an excellent time to engage in this. We should let the Spirit of God work, first in us and then through us, by extended times of communion with Him. “Cease striving and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10), embarassingly without our help at times.
