HOUSE OF RUTH SET TO CLOSE ITS DOORS By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The lone women’s-only, longterm substance-abuse centre in the city is closing. The doors to the House of Ruth on the North Shore will be locked for the final time by the New Life Mission on Oct. 1 at the latest, according to agency executive director Stan Dueck. The shelter has almost always run in a deficit financial situation, Dueck said. In recent weeks, Dueck said, it became apparent the health of the rest of the programs run by the mission would remain in jeopardy with such a significant financial drain. On average, monthly expenses have run about $27,000, Dueck said, with revenue usually approximately $15,000 to house, feed and provide programs to women recovering from substance abuse.

Dueck said once the last few women staying at the house have been relocated and all the transitional tasks have been completed to shut it down, the property will be put up for sale. The hope is proceeds from a sale will help solidify the overall mission balance sheet, which has also been precarious for years. Making the decision was difficult, Dueck said, because everyone connected with the mission has always done what was needed to keep the house running. However, sometimes that meant staff was not paid on time and that’s not something Dueck wants to see continue. Senior managers met to talk about the situation and, after two hours of discussion, Dueck said, he looked at each of them and said: “For two hours, we have talked about faith and the great things we do, but not one word has been said about the dollars and cents — and we have a dollars and cents problem.

“So, what are we going to do about it? “Once the call was made in the managers’ meeting, you could see a sense of peace come over everyone,” Dueck said. The management team provided the mission board with several options, but knew the decision would be a tough one. It’s one that’s been made before, but not to this extent. The program was shut down three times in the past 15 years due to money issues, once with the thenexecutive director recommending the property be turned back to the landlord, the Roman Catholic Diocese. At that time, the mission leased the property; it bought it later. Dueck believes the right decision was made to ensure the mission continues with its thrift store, outreach program, dayroom and meals program and long-term recovery programming for men. He said the goal is to offer

programming for women through the West Victoria Street building, although it won’t be long-term residential care. At least, not yet. There’s a long-term goal to move many of the substance-abuse programs off-site completely into a rural area with space, potential for teaching trades and boosting sustainability and the opportunity to take people fighting addictions away from many of the temptations they face every day on the streets of Kamloops. Dueck has a spot in mind — his office computer screen-saver sports a photograph of the location he’s hoping to obtain — and he has begun preliminary talks to try to find a way to make the dream a reality. At one time, the House of Ruth was well over its legal occupancy level. In recent times, the number of clients has dropped. Three remain, with one ready to move out on her own, with supports, and two others who

will hopefully be placed in other programs. “We’re not giving up, though,” Dueck said. “The new life starts in recovery. “You know, I have people say to me, ‘What are you doing about your people?’ “They’re not our people. They are your people. They are citizens of Kamloops. We’re just trying to help them.” Dueck said other measures have already been put in place, from not taking in more women to cutting hours, eliminating overtime, using managers more in fill-in situations and trying to boost fundraising. That has been a problem, he said, because, while people will give to the mission, “nobody wants to give to recovery.” “We’re calling this a shrink to find a solid foundation and then grow,” Dueck said. “But, the truth is, you have to be able to pay your bills.”

North Shore welcomes opening of new clinic By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Patti Aldrich has a saying she’s using as she deals with people waiting to see the doctor. “I ask our patients to be patient,” the clinic manager at the NorKam Health Care Centre said. Odds are, folks are willing to wait a bit as the North Shore gains a new walk-in doctor’s service at the centre at 700 Tranquille Rd. Aldrich said opening the clinic in the health care-oriented building owned by city pharmacist Missagh Manshadi was accelerated when another walk-in clinic closed at the Northills Shopping Centre. Two doctors work out of the centre — Susan Vlahos moved her practice there, but also works on the walk-in side, and Brian Pasula handles only walk-in patients. The reason the pair is there is simple: The North Shore needs more doctors. Pasula, who moved to the city about six months ago, said he began his medical practice at the

mall’s clinic. “And I really liked the people here and there’s a real need here.” Vlahos agreed, noting in the years she’s practised in the city, she has recognized the need for more health-care options on the North Shore. Manshadi is delighted to finally have doctors in the clinic, one he had designed to ultimately be occupied by up to six medical practitioners. The 34,000-squarefoot, $8-million structure is home to Manshadi’s second drug store, has housing above it and storefront space he hopes will attract others who work in health care, including naturopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists — “anything alternative or healthrelated,” he said. “Missagh has a wonderful heart,” Aldrich said, “to make a place where people can gather and have their health looked at.” The clinic had an unadvertised opening on Tuesday, Aug. 6, and, from the first moment, there have been people coming through the doors, many

of them seniors. People can pre-register there as well, Aldrich said, a process that will help speed up any visits they may need to make in the future. There are plans to bring in more doctors and, in anticipation of the day when the clinic will open to a lineup of people, as others in the city experience, a ticket system will be implemented, in which someone will hand out tickets

with estimated times before the doors open so people aren’t left waiting to get into the office to then continue to wait, only to learn they need to come back later. For now, the centre is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but the hope is to add enough doctors to add evening and weekend walk-in hours. It can be reached by calling 250-376-9595.

Another hot weekend keeps firefighters busy By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

With little rain, dry terrain and plenty of lightning in the mix, it was another busy weekend for B.C.’s wildfire-management branch in the Kamloops area. Lightning strikes caused 76 fires in the area over the weekend, split fairly evenly over Saturday, Aug. 10, and Sunday, Aug. 11, said Melissa Welsh, fire information officer for the Kamloops Fire Centre. While most of the strikes cause small spot fires, firefighters were still dealing with two larger blazes as of Monday, Aug. 12. The larger of the two, north of Kamloops near Vinsulla, covers nearly 69 hectares, but was being fully contained by 31 firefighters, Welsh said. “Fire behaviour is mainly a smouldering ground fire,” she said. “There’s a couple hot spots within the fire perimeter as well and they’re just going to be working on extinguishing those today [Monday].” Another 13 firefighters were also at work on a 1.7-hectare fire in the Lillooet area that led to an evacuation order for some rural residents on Saturday night. “They’re just going to be working on establishing hand guard around the fire, so digging a small trench around the fire for a fuel-free break there,” Welsh said. Welsh said the number of fires around the Kamloops Fire Centre is on the rise, with more expected. “With the fire danger rating as it is — it’s looking moderate to high through the entire fire centre here, and I think we’re expecting a continuing trend of hot and dry conditions with not much precipitation coming with the thunderstorms — it’s definitely a concern,” she said. Welsh said it’s important the public comply with bans on campfires and open burning throughout the fire centre given the dry conditions.

Marijuana criminal cases on decline By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS tfletcher@kamloopsthisweek.com

Marijuana-possession cases still account for 60 per cent of drugviolation reports to police in B.C., but the number of cases declined by 10 per cent in 2012, according to new figures from Statistics Canada. There were 25,432 policereported incidents of drug offences in B.C. last year, a 7.4 per cent decline from 2011. Marijuanatrafficking cases declined more than 20 per cent to 1,006 incidents, and importation and exportation of marijuana declined by 40 per cent. Marijuana-growing cases declined 4.6 per cent, following a

28.6 per cent drop in 2011. Heroin-possession cases jumped more than 30 per cent to 500 and heroin-trafficking cases rose 37 per cent to 224 incidents in 2012. There were 653 reported cases of possession of methamphetamine (crystal meth), a 20 per cent increase over 2011 and 110 per cent more than 2009. The decline in B.C. marijuana cases comes as licensed medicalmarijuana production increases across North America. Colorado and Washington state voted to legalize sale to adults last year.

drive aimed at decriminalizing marijuana possession in B.C. Marijuana activist Dana Larsen has formed a group called Sensible B.C., aimed at forcing a change to B.C. law that would prevent police resources from being used against simple possession of marijuana. Sensible B.C. is using the same voter-initiative system that forced the repeal of the harmonized sales tax in B.C. The group will have 90 days starting on Sept. 9 to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered provincial voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. If that target is met, a provincewide vote would be held on the proposed law.

Come fall, some of Kamloops’ athletic facilities may be sporting new names. This past spring, the city announced it would sell naming rights to its various fields and ice pads, with the cash going to the Kamloops Sports Council. Among the sites up for grabs are the McArthur Island rinks and the field at Hillside Stadium. Bryce Herman, who is selling the naming rights for the city, said it’s likely the first corporate name changes will be announced in October. “There’s a few companies out there right now looking at it,” Herman said. “In fact, I just talked to one again this morning [Aug. 9].” But, he said, it’s unlikely anyone will commit to the program until summer ends. “It’s like anything.

dealing with those kinds of numbers, it does take a little bit of time for people to budget, plan and review,” he said. “But, there’s a number of companies that have got it and seem to have a keen interest and are asking some questions.” So far, McArthur Island is generating the most interest from businesses, Herman said. “It’s probably because there’s a concentration of multi-discipline sports within that area,” he said. “I think that’s probably the key thing. “There’s summer and winter activities going on there.” The Kamloops Sports Council has estimated the naming-rights program could generate up to $350,000 a year, which would be used to offset hosting costs for major athletic events in the city. Naming rights would be sold for a three-year term, with hightraffic sites like Hillside going for about $75,000.

Fewer eyes in sky seeking Chase grow-ops By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Outdoor marijuana growers in the Kamloops area might notice the same amount of law enforcement they did 10 years ago, but growers to the east might be having an easier time thanks to a financial crunch. About 10 years ago, the business of outdoor pot-growing in Chase was a bit more challenging, thanks to local RCMP. Chase RCMP Cpl. Mark Skotnicki noted the detachment used to conduct an annual “harvesting” crackdown. The program would span seven to 14 days and would have officers hitting Chase mountain-sides in the final weeks of August or early September, searching for crops ready for harvest. Skotnicki said the marijuana plants were usually easy to spot, explaining many outdoor grow-ops tend to be planted in cut-blocks and have distinct colour differences, making them detectable to the human eye. Skotnicki estimated the annual crackdown would pull in anywhere from 10 to 16 grow-ops each year,

bringing in several thousand plants. RCMP from Chase and outside areas would work together finding, cutting and removing the plants. However, such an operation required an excessive use of manpower, which meant an increase in expenses for the Chase detachment. “There is no incentive program for us to receive anything from the seizures,” Skotnicki said, noting this includes monetary and equipment incentives. In the United States, police receive something from growops busted. Skotnicki said it is not the case in Canada. When money began to get tight and cutbacks were needed, the harvesting program was weaned down until it was no longer conducted at all. Skotnicki said it’s not only the Chase detachment that was hit hard financially, but detachments nation-wide. “We are in the second year of a threeyear financial crunch,” he said. While Mounties conducted a number of larger busts, the manpower required to work the program was getting pricey

by the end. Ideally, the RCMP would have liked to have had 10 officers working each of the seven to 14 days, but that was not always possible. The expenses didn’t end with costs of physical duty. Skotnicki noted that, while it took time to clip, bag and process the 10,000

plants, the paperwork would be ongoing months after the raid occurred. Skotnicki believes once the financial situation improves, the aerial assaults on pot plantations will return. For now, however, he stressed Mounties still undertake investigations and perform seizures, albeit in

a different manner based on complaints or information given to police. “It is when we do them in bulk and do a large amount in a short time that things get costly,” Skotnicki said. “We still investigate when tips come in.” Whether he considered the thousands

of plant seizures to be successful, Skotnicki said it depends on how one looks at it. “Success would be to completely eradicate drugs,” Skotnicki said. “But, really, no one is ever going to win the war on drugs.” He admitted the amount of plants seized through the program was only the

tip of the iceberg in the bigger picture. “But, I would like to think that seizing 10,000 plants from 10 grows in a oneto two-week period meant we were putting some kind of dent in it locally,” Skotnicki said. “I can say from a policing perspective that that kind of result is a success.”

BC Assessment goes digital with photos Step aside, Google street view, the B.C. Assessment Authority is holding the camera. BC Assessment will be in Kamloops on Monday, Aug. 19, to begin a project that will see it take streetfront digital photos of approximately 25,000 single-family homes in the city and another 550 properties on the Tk’emlups Indian Band reserve. The technology — which uses digital cameras mounted inside a clearly marked van — has already been used in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, the Okanagan and on Vancouver Island for property-assessment purposes. “As the Crown corporation responsible for accurately valuing all properties in B.C. and many First Nations, we are always looking for innovative ways to provide more timely,

accurate, equitable and fair assessments to all property owners,” said Graham Held, deputy-assessor for the ThompsonCariboo region. BC Assessment will photograph only the public street front of a home including the civic (street) address number and will not retain any personal information related to: • Any images of people on the property. • Visible signage on a residence (excluding street address), including business signs, signs with the names of the people living at that property and any other type of signage that may relate to the identity of a person. This includes vehicle licence plates. • The interior of a residence (e.g., images that show the inside of a home through a window or open doorway, or the interior of an enclosed vehicle shelter such as a garage).

LOCAL NEWS The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has released photos of the site of the Tuesday, Aug. 6, crash of the Cessna 172L plane near Cache Creek that claimed the life of 16-year-old Lorne Perrault, a student pilot on a solo flight.

Crash focus of in-depth probe By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Investigators for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) have completed most of the “field phase” of their inquiry into a crash that killed a 16-year-old Kamloops boy. Lorne Perreault died when the Cessna he was piloting crashed near Cache Creek on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Based on photos of the site, TSB regional manager for aviation accident investigations Bill Yearwood said it appears the plane collided with the ground at a steep angle while travelling at a high velocity. “The damage is consistent with an unsurvivable collision with the ground,” he told KTW. “The understanding of why that happened, there’s a lot of work yet to be done.” Perreault was training for his pilot’s licence and had almost 100 hours of flying experience when he took off on a solo flight in the Kamloops Lake area. Perreault and the plane were found at about 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 7, by a team in a Royal Canadian Air Force Buffalo aircraft. With a survey of the site mostly complete, the Cessna will be transported to Kamloops, where it can undergo further analysis as needed. Yearwood said he expects it will likely be months before the TSB issues a final report on Perreault’s death. The TSB has opted to do a longer, more in-depth investigation of the crash, beyond what would be required by the B.C. Coroners Service, Yearwood said. “When we look at these circumstances, we try to determine if there is something we could learn in doing a full investigation that could help the public and the aviation community avoid a similar occurrence,” he said. Past long investigations have led to recom-

mendations that passengers in sea planes wear lifejackets, for instance. Other recent reports have dealt with training given to pilots operating in mountainous terrain. “This occurrence is in a mountainous area,” Yearwood said.

insufficient standards for mountain flying, we would raise those.” Yearwood said if investigators discover anything that poses an immediate hazard to the public, they will release that information in advance of their full report.

“I can’t say whether at this point the issues were related to mountainous terrain or flight training, and that’s why we want to do a long investigation. “If we find issue in the control of students in a flight-training environment or issues of

there’s just too many drops to count, too many to ignore. BCUOMA is a not-for-profit organization that encourages British Columbians to responsibly recycle used oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze and antifreeze containers. Since the launch of the program in 2003, British Columbians have done an exceptional job of recycling their used oil materials.

ONE DROP MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

BCUOMA is expanding its successful ambassador program this summer – with two teams of ambassadors touring the province to educate and raise awareness of the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling. By recycling your used oil and antifreeze products, you’re playing an important role in preserving our environment for future generations.

OT ONLY IS ALCOHOL much cheaper in the United States (eleven bucks for a case of Heineken helped make a recent vacation Stateside that much better), but it is also more widely available than here in B.C. These facts are well-known to every of-age Canadian who has travelled to the U.S. — and may form some of the feedback residents are expected to give Victoria as the B.C. Liberal government launches the first significant review of liquor policy since 1999. Visitors to the United States know one can buy beer or wine in department stores like Target, in grocery stores like Safeway and in corner stores like 7-Eleven. It’s a convenience that seems to operate just fine; ingrained as it is in the U.S. — and in Quebec — it doesn’t seem to be a big deal to anyone but a first-time visitor from bureaucratic B.C., where some of the existing regulations can leave many heads wounded from much scratching. From some reason, one beer and wine store cannot open within one kilometre from another without first hurdling regulatory hell; restaurants cannot buy alcohol from a private liquor store, only from public stores; there are no happy hours allowed and the number of rules dictating when and where and how businesses can and cannot sell alcohol is positively Byzantine. Is anybody not puzzled by the fact the cheapest bottle of B.C. wine can be found far from B.C. — in California? Or that one can drink a beer with

MUSINGS their kids while seated at a table at the sketchiest of restaurants, but cannot do the same with their kids while seated at a table at the most upscale of pubs? John Yap, parliamentary secretary for liquor policy reform, is expected to submit a report to Justice Minister Suzanne Anton by Nov. 25, after which it will be made public. “Right now, some of B.C.’s liquor laws go back many years,” Anton said, noting the Liberals are looking at making “practical and responsible changes that promote consumer convenience and economic growth in the province, with a strong eye to maintaining public safety and protecting the health of our citizens.” The government’s record on protecting the public has been the focus of the University of Victoria’s Centre for Addictions Research, which argues that B.C. leads and lags in alcoholrelated policy (go online to http://communications.uvic.ca/releases/release. php?display=release&id=1382 to read more). The Centre for Addictions Research also published a report, in partnership with the Prevention Research Center in

Berkeley, Calif., that argued privatizing liquor sales results in more alcoholrelated deaths. Of course, there are critics of that research and I am sure both sides will weigh in when asked to provide input as B.C. attempts, yet again, to simplify its alcohol regulations. One would hope the resulting policies will seriously address the “taboo” aspect of alcohol that is so prevalent in B.C. When I was 15 or so, my girlfriend’s father offered me a beer during dinner at her house. I was taken aback, but learned that sipping a beer or wine during dinner is nothing new for teens in Europe. As my then-girlfriend noted, it therefore ceases to become an elusive tonic to be abused when one reaches a magical age. This mature approach to alcohol could be extended, of course, to allowing a couple to relax in a park with a bottle of wine; to allow patrons to actually continue to enjoy their summer night on a restaurant or pub patio without the dreaded 11 p.m. curfew kicking in; to allow busy people to stop at a grocery story and add a sixpack to their grocery cart. The government has asked 10,000 liquor-related businesses to provide input on liquor regulations. The public will have its say in September. Do you have ideas? If so, what are they? Send them to us and we will publish your thoughts. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

For two summers in a row, the Interior Savings/Daybreak Rotary Ribfest has served up more than good ribs, tasty suds and marvellous music. It has served up reason enough for Kamloops to embrace even more such major events to the Tournament Capital, be they at Riverside Park or other venues. The success of Ribfest in Kamloops is simply stunning. In only its second year, there were more ribs sold during the first two days at Riverside than were handed out during Edmonton’s recent fourday Klondike Days, which is a major event. Anybody who attended Ribfest this past weekend could see how success is staged — orderly lines of people buying award-winning ribs, happy folks fending off thirst in the fenced-off beer gardens (which had superior monitors to ensure legality of age and absence of trouble), music lovers chowing down in front of the Rotary Bandshell stage and kids of all ages enjoying all sorts of climbing fun in a special zone for them in the east side of Riverside. The vibe was magical, the weather perfect, the offerings sumptuous — and the volunteers going above and beyond. (If next week’s BC Seniors Games includes Ribfest volunteers, Games athletes and fans are in for a special treat). So, a standing ovation is due all who made Ribfest the marquee stop on the cooking tour — and only in its second year in Kamloops. There are only 12 months until Ribfest 2013 arrives. Get your napkins out and make sure you don’t miss it. It really is that good.

Shame on the thief; kudos to the compassionate Editor: On Aug. 7, we had to tell our sevenyear-old son that his brand new bike, which was properly locked up, had been stolen. He had the bike for only eight days. This was his first new bike as he has had only second-hand bikes previously. As a low-income family, it took us quite some time to save up for this bike, but the look of pure pleasure and happiness on our

son’s face was worth it. That look has now been replaced with one of sadness and confusion. Less than eight hours after sharing our story on Facebook, a wonderful woman, Tanya, contacted us and offered a replacement bike. This bike is in perfect condition with the store stickers still on! Tanya really deserves to be recognized

Ajax mine? Even in a different form? No, thanks Editor: I laughed out loud when reading Dale Bass’s Aug. 8 column on changing her mind about the proposed Ajax mine (‘How support for mine was lost due to those with the mine’). It was the reference to “sonic booms” that will be heard through the city. The reason this was funny is because the prediction of “sonic booms,” as documented in the news a couple of weeks ago, is exactly the point at which I made exactly the same mind shift. And I made that shift with-

out knowing about the childish reaction Bass reported coming from KGHM Ajax spokespeople. Up until then, I, too, was cautious about the knee-jerk NIMBY (not in my backyard) reaction of neighbourhoods. I am also cautious about the belief system that de-industrialization is the only way to make our world a better place. But, there were worrisome pieces of news about Ajax and KGHM. I just kept watching. Pre-sonic boom, the opinion I voiced was that the mine, as well as various pipelines,

should be able to be built and operated safely and responsibly. I always added the glitch is that environmental laws don’t seem to be enforced anywhere, any time. When have we seen a railway company, oil-tanker company, pipeline owner or drilling company step up to the plate immediately with a fast and effective response to the inevitable accidents that occur? So, Bass and I have heard the sonic boom, so to speak. Now the task becomes preventing the mine from being

built. Stop it now before poor KGHM invests more money in a mine dream that isn’t going to happen. Count me in. I am going public. I am against the Ajax mine in any form being built where proposed. Or near where it is proposed. Or beside there. Or deeper. No mine. No, thanks. Finis. Marg Archibald Kamloops

‘Thank you for making a difference in this challenge we have ahead of us. I had no idea how harmful this mine could be, but the more I dug, the worse the news got — to the point it scares me and I will move away if it becomes a reality. To be honest, the sonic boom isn’t the biggest issue. I think it is our doctors fleeing and our city’s health deteriorating due to the toxic dust that will not start to dissipate for what I believe is 15 kilometres from the mine site.’ — Letter writer Lori Maloney weighs in on Dale Bass’s Aug. 8 column.

the proposed Ajax mine could be good for us because it just might provide jobs for a few Kamloopsians. But, deep inside, we are convinced, both by knowledgeable authorities and our own nagging common sense, that the cost of the mine — to our economy, our environment and our health — far

outweighs the benefits. As letter writer Andrew Bezooyen pointed out in the Aug.1 edition of KTW, the city should follow Tofino’s lead and call for support of Mayor Josie Osborne’s resolution to modernize the antiquated Mineral Tenure Act. This would enshrine the rights of urban populations

to refuse proposals such as KGHM’s proposed Ajax mine. Thank you to councillors Donovan Cavers and Tina Lange for taking a stand. The rest of Kamloops council should join them — and Bass. Colleen Carbol Kamloops

Pub owner hopes liquor review targets taxes Many are being consulted as Victoria undertakes significant look at existing booze regulations in B.C. By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Al Deacon’s family has owned the Fox N’ Hounds pub at Sahali Centre Mall for 30 years. In that time, Deacon has seen plenty of changes that affect the business he grew up in and he’s anticipating more now that the provincial government is reviewing its liquor regulations. Deacon is likely on the mail-out list of those who will be asked for input by John Yap, the parliamentary secretary for liquor-policy reform, before the process expands next month to allow anyone to comment. “Everybody’s throwing their two bits into the wish pot,” Deacon said. For him, one of the areas he hopes isn’t changed is allowing children into pubs. “Kids should not be exposed to some of the things that happen there, the rednecks who sit beside you and the language starts. “It’s not healthy.” He’s hopeful something is done about the way alcohol is taxed to simplify it. “One tax system would be great,’ Deacon said. “We had to pass on a draft [beer] tax a while ago. You can only absorb so much before you have to pass it along to the customer.” Kamloops hospitality consultant Bryce Herman said the review is long overdue. “We have archaic laws and there are ongoing issues,” he said. One of the areas he hopes is addressed is allowing liquor retailers the ability to sell to liquor licencees, rather than requiring they go through government-run stores.

That might help the area’s wine industry in particular, Herman said, because it sells smaller quantities. “That’s why you get a lot of the same wines being offered everywhere,” Herman said. He’d like to see patio hours also looked at, noting they now have to shut down at 11 p.m. And Herman might disagree with Deacon on allowing children into pubs, noting there’s an educational side to exposing children to responsible drinking rather than holding it as a special 19th-birthday rite to then go out “and get blotto.” Among the changes being proposed is allowing farmers’ markets to sell wine, something the rancher who heads up the Kamloops market supports. Tristan Cavers said he’s not sure how it might work, however, but could see it as a benefit for wineries in the Interior. He said he’d want to ensure there are no problems with sales or sampling. The people behind Harper’s Trail winery in east Kamloops see any changes a chance at making their industry stronger. “The laws are so antiquated, so

silly,” said Ed Collett. His wife, Vicki, echoed his comments in an interview after the official weekend opening of their winery on Shuswap Road. “It’s just about tax money,” she said. “You can by anything online from anywhere in the world, but we have all these laws.” The Colletts are particularly irate at restrictions wineries face on selling their product in other Canadian jurisdictions. They praised wine journalist Terry David Mulligan, who transported a case of B.C. wine from Penticton to Alberta, even though it was against the law. In July 2012, B.C. changed its liquor-importation laws to allow people to bring back Canadian wine from elsewhere in the country, provided it was for personal consumption and not resale. Yap’s report is to be prepared by Nov. 25, when it will go to Attorney General and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton for consideration.

BYOB usually for special occasions On July 19, 2012, provincial liquor laws were changed so people could bring their own bottles of wine to restaurants. They would be charged a corkage fee — a cost to have restaurant staff open the bottle and pour the wine. It’s not a common occurrence, said Connie Decaire, co-owner of The Brownstone Restaurant at 118 Victoria St. “We actually had one table last night that brought in two bottles and one table that brought in one bottle,” she said. “That’s unusual.” David Tombs, owner of Terra Restaurant at 326 Victoria St., agreed. “It’s happening occasionally,” he said, noting customers will bring in a trophy bottle, perhaps an expensive bottle they have bought or had at home and know would cost even more with restaurant markup rates. His restaurant charges a $15 corkage fee for B.C. wines and $20 for all others because “we’re a B.C. promoter.” Decaire charges $15 regardless of wine’s origin. Prestons Restaurant and Lounge at the Coast Kamloops Hotel finds the same situation. “Maybe twice a month, usually on special occasions,” said restaurant manager Nicole St. Godard. The corkage fee there is also $15. Liquor laws require restaurant staff with the appropriate serving certification must open and pour the wine “so you can’t open it and be passing it around the table yourself,” Decaire said. “It makes the most sense if you have an expensive bottle at home.”

Shuswap Road winery set to expand facilities in coming months

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ed and Vicki Collett are curious about who their new neighbours will be. The owners of Harper’s Trail winery on Shuswap Road know a large hunk of land just west of them recently sold — and they also know it’s prime for more vineyards. They know this because their own 18-acre vineyard, the end result of a dream launched in a small bed-and-breakfast in Naramata a few years ago, now produces award-winning wines. The Colletts officially opened their winery on Saturday, Aug. 10, toasting it with their 2012 rosé. There was never any doubt they would go anywhere but back home to Kamloops to follow their dream. Ed said he and his wife were inspired by the many wineries they encountered during their travels around the world — in particular those they visited in Chile. As he spoke to people at the public open house, Ed’s voice caught a few times as he talked about buying part of the former Harper Ranch — the same place Thaddeus Harper once ran cattle and within eyesight of the old hops farm along the South Thompson River — and planting those first clippings. Last year, the winery bottled about 3,300 litres of wine, which translated into about 4,400 bottles, he said, and the vineyard will expand next year when gamay noir and pinot noir are planted. He was emotional, he said later, not only because the dream is growing, but because the couple overcame several hurdles along the way — not the least of which being a dispute with the Tk’emlups Indian Band about permits. Work had to stop while the issue was addressed. There are plans beyond the new grapes. The Colletts have already picked out an area where they want to build an underground barrel room, a place that will be ideal for samplings and which will eventually be attached to a restaurant. The structure now being used for sales, samplings and storage will be replaced with a larger building in coming months, to be joined with a deli sometime next year, said operations manager Bobbe Lyall. Local entertainers will also be promoted; Margit Bull and Sweetgrass are the featured act at a barbecue at the winery on Sept. 21, for example. The winery has also hooked up with local fitness guru Jo Berry, who is organizing a run at the site later this year. Charity is also set to benefit. The winery is charging $5 for a sample — a substantial pouring, Lyall said — and half the proceeds will be going to local non-profit agencies. For now, the winery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for sales and samplings and tours can be arranged. It is slated to shut down for winter at Thanksgiving, re-opening on the Victoria Day weekend in 2014.

Ferner rejoins Blazers Hicketts golden with Canada By Travis Paterson

A familiar face will be behind the Kamloops Blazers’ bench this season. Mark Ferner is returning to the Western Hockey League club as associate coach to head coach Dave Hunchak. Ferner returns to the Blazers after spending the past 10 years coaching junior hockey as an assistant and head coach in the B.C. (junior A) Hockey League and the WHL. Ferner’s coaching career began with the Vancouver Giants following his retirement from professional hockey in 2001. He was a member of the Kamloops Blazers coaching staff from 2002 to 2006 as an assistant and head coach. Following his stint with the Blazers, Ferner went on to coach the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL for four seasons, amassing a 165-51-24 record en route to winning three consecutive BCHL championships and two straight Royal Bank Centennial Cups as Canadian junior A champions in 2009 and 2010. Ferner spent the last one-and-a-half seasons as head coach of the Everett Silvertips of the WHL. He was fired in January after posting a

38-64-2-10 record. “Mark has continued to evolve and improve as a coach over the past 10 years,” Kamloops general manager Craig Bonner said. “His hockey resume is very impressive. He has had tremendous success as a head coach in junior A and we believe he will complement our coaching staff well.” Ferner also brings a prominent playing and coaching background back to the Tournament Capital. He played his entire junior hockey career with the Kamloops Jr. Oilers/Blazers franchise from 1982 to

1985 before playing professional hockey for 16 seasons in North America and in Europe. During his professional career, Ferner suited up in 91 NHL games for the Buffalo Sabres, Washington Capitals, Anaheim Mighty Ducks and Detroit Red Wings. “We are excited to have Mark join our coaching staff,” head coach Dave Hunchak said. “He is a great addition to what we already have in place.”

Season approaching The Blazers are selling 2013-2014 season tickets.

For information, contact ticketing and promotions co-ordinator Missy Cederholm by phone at 778-4718068 or by email at mcederholm@blazerhockey.com. The Blazers’ annual Blue and White games will be held at Interior Savings on Tuesday, Aug. 27, and Wednesday, Aug. 28, with both games starting at 7 p.m. The club opens its pre-season schedule with a Friday, Aug. 30 game in Kelowna. The first pre-season home contest takes place on Sunday, Sept. 1, against Vancouver.

Gold at the international level has helped Kamloops product Joe Hicketts begin to establish himself as a top Western Hockey League prospect going into the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Hicketts, a defenceman with the WHL’s Victoria Royals, helped Team Canada finish atop the heap at the Under-18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial men’s under18 hockey tournament, co-hosted by the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Canada earned a 4-0 victory over the U.S. in the final on Saturday, Aug. 10. Hicketts was named an alternate captain by coach Dale Hunter prior to the tournament and played a key role on the

JOE HICKETTS team’s top defensive pairing with captain Aaron Ekblad. “It feels amazing,” Hicketts said on TSN after the win. “To be part of a tradition that has won six [Ivan Hlinka championships] in a row and continued the history of that tradition is amazing.” The win is Hicketts’ first international gold medal. Canada went 2-1 in pool play and defeated Russia 3-1 in the semifinal on Friday to advance to the gold

medal game. Hicketts recorded two assists at the tournament. Earlier in 2013, Hicketts suited up for Canada in two exhibition games at the IIHF Under-18 World Championships in Sochi, Russia. NHL Central Scouting has pegged Hicketts as a WHL prospect to follow heading into the 2014 draft. The Kamloops kid was captain of Team Pacific at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge and was also captain of Team Canada at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games, winning bronze. Hicketts racked up 24 points, six of them goals, in 67 games as the Royals’ rookie-ofthe-year in 2012-2013.

McManus out as KYSA technical director The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association’s (KYSA) board of directors will not renew the contract of technical director Tom McManus. McManus has held the position for seven years. A KYSA press release on Friday, Aug. 9, seemed to suggest McManus had decided to leave the organization at the end of August to devote more time to his head coaching job with the TRU WolfPack women’s soccer team. McManus later confirmed he was surprised with the board’s decision not to renew the contract.

He will continue coaching a girls’ team in the KYSA rep ranks. “I am very proud of what I have done at KYSA,” McManus said. “My main focus the entire time has been on the young players.” The WolfPack soccer teams are making the jump in 2014 to Canadian Interuniversity Sports. TRU’s athletic department is planning to next year hire a full-time employee who will act as a general manager of sorts for both the men’s and women’s squads. McManus plans on applying for the job.

Zone 8 counts down to the . . .

2013 BC SENIORS GAMES

whist

By Sarah MacMillan SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops will host the 2013 BC Seniors Games from Aug. 20 to Aug. 24, 2013. The city is expecting about 3,500 athletes, ages 55 and up, to attend the Games, which will feature more than 20 events, ranging from cribbage to ice hockey. KTW continues its biweekly feature page, with each page focusing on one of the Games’ events.

For Kamloops resident Barbara Mills, cards are a way to get together and have a good time — and the game of whist is no exception. “It’s a way to socialize,” said Mills, whist co-ordinator for Zone 8. Mills began playing whist years ago in Barriere at the Royal Canadian Legion. She knows the rules of the game. “You are dealt 13 cards,” she said. “You start off with hearts, then clubs, then diamonds, then spades and then no trump.” Whist, which shares many characteristics with bridge, is a card game that originated in England in the 17th century. The game uses a 52-card deck and the dealer

divides the deck among four players, who are playing in partners. Each person, starting with the person to the dealers left, then plays a card. The next person must play a card of the same suit if they can but, if unable to, they can play any card. The trick, which is the four cards laid down by the players, is won by the player who played the highest trump card. If no trump card is played, then the highest card in the suit. When all 13 tricks have been played, the team which won the most tricks scores one point for each trick they won, in excess of six. At the Seniors Games, whist is set up into flights. “They move you from table to table and, when you score up those points, you go on to the next one,” Mills said. Each of the six whist teams per zone that

are allowed to go to the B.C. Seniors Games is guaranteed a minimum of 20 games. Each of the games are played over the course of two days. At the end of the second day, gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the first, second and third pairs of each flight. The gold medal winners then compete in an additional playoff for gold, silver and bronze medals. However, for Mills, the medals are not important. “I play cards for fun,” she said, “because to me, it is fun.” For more information regarding the whist and the B.C. Seniors Games, call Mills at 250554-1606 or email her at millb@telus.net. Information pertaining to the B.C. Seniors Games can also be found at bcseniorsgames.org.

whether it is winter, summer, spring or fall, Saul Lake is the place to go if you feel the urge g to catch fish after fish. The nature of this sport fishery makes Saul Lake a good place to go with children, especially first-timers who crave their first catch. It will be easy to thrill five-year-olds at Saul Lake because a successful day on the water is virtually a guarantee. Ultralight tackle, such as small rods and reels with lines in the four to six-pound test range as well as small hooks between #12 and #14, are best on this lake. While the regulations do not require it, pinch down the barbs of your hooks. Since you will have a great deal of catching and releasing to do, barbless hooks will make the job easier and make the fish happier. FEW LAKES COULD BE CALLED A SUREFIRE

fish producer, but Saul Lake is one lake where catching a fish is almost a certainty. This small body of water on the Tranquille Plateau is bursting with rainbow trout. Not big ones — “big” trout are up to 30.5

centimetres (12 inches) — but there are lots of them and they are easy to catch. Anglers can employ almost any technique, from flies and spinners to worm and bobber, and expect to catch fish. It doesn’t matter

It is not the end of the world, but it sounds like something from the plot of a 1990s thriller — most likely starring Bruce Willis or someone of his ilk. The sun — our solar system’s hub and the ball of fire on which we all rely for survival — is about to do something crazy. It’s going to flip its poles — north becoming south and vice versa. According to Kim Jenner, an amateur astronomer and member of the Kamloops Astronomical Society, the pole reversal is something that happens on a regular basis. “The field changes polarity every 11 or so years,” he told KTW. “It’s a big event for the sun, and the sun is our closest star.” Jenner said past pole flips have caused some problems for us measly Earthlings, but it’s nothing to spend too much time worrying about. “Those space-weather guys are always worried about stuff like this happening,” he said. “They get really fidgety because, in the past, they have lost satellites.

“They’ve come to realize that this is important.” Jenner said scientists are still learning about things like solar pole reversals. “There’s not a lot of information on it,” he said. “But, we’re starting to understand more of it and they can tell if there’s something big.” The Kamloops Astronomical Society is hosting a meeting

on the topic of the sun’s polar shift on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in room S201 of Thompson Rivers

University’s Sciences Building. The meeting is free and open to anyone who would like to attend.

Lincoln’s 2013 MKZ hybrid is affordable and luxurious STORY/B8

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the new 2013 DODGE JEEP WRANGLER. …… I love the look of this jeep, even with the roof down i was impressed that i could still hear my music and talk on the hands free phone while driving down the highway. The jeep is really smooth, handles well and has great visibility, with the roof on or off . I found it to be excellent on fuel with lots of power. With the comfy seats and lots of room this jeep has it all. It is a great family vehicle or if you want to go out off-roading. Super fun and especially in the summer with the roof off.

Now it’s your turn! Come test drive it yourself! IN 2013 EVERYONE WANTS TO BE A RAM

ZIMMER WHEATON • GMC • BUICK

Thrift in a luxury hybrid By Neil Moore METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

W

hen Lincoln reinvented the MKZ midsize sedan in 2013, the company nailed it on at least two counts. For starters, the automaker deep-sixed its stodgy grandpa-car look and turned to its dedicated studio for a makeover both inside and out. The new design philosophy, according to their marketing bumph, “stands apart but doesn’t stand out.” Here, I beg to differ. The new MKZ, with its swoopy lines, modern LED exterior lighting and split wing grille inspired by the 1938 Zephyr, turned plenty of heads at any auto show I attended. This puts me in mind of the Cadillac CTS — not in looks, but as a game-changer for the brand. No. 2: Lincoln priced its hybrid right. Auto journalism has its share of curmudgeons and, depending on the writer, many scoff at hybrid price premiums that can take from a few years to decades

to pay off. With the MKZ, there’s no added cost for the hybrid model — it shares the same starting MSRP as its “base” gas-powered sibling. Sure, there’s a tradeoff in power (the entry Premiere comes with a 240-horse-power turbo four rather than a milder non-turbo four with electric motor), but they are similarly well equipped. The team from Ford/Lincoln recently invited a group of Canadian journalists to test their battery-assisted MKZ. I’ll admit, the idea of a premium sedan without abundant power may seem unusual — especially when some automakers, like BMW, mate a killer engine with electric motor to deliver even more clout when you tire of being green. But the MKZ isn’t benchmarked against the 335-horsepower ActivHybrid3. A better comparison would be the Lexus ES 300h, the hybrid version of its popular ES sedan. Like Lincoln, Lexus swaps the V6 (there’s no four-pot turbo) for a 2.5-litre gas engine plus electric motor and nickel-metal

hydride battery pack. The net for this powertrain is 200 horses. The MKZ, on the other hand, employs even smaller displacement through a 2.0-litre Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder and electric motor combo that produces 188 net horse power. Unlike the Lexus, it uses smaller, lighter lithium-ion batteries and is 17 per cent more efficient than the previous MKZ hybrid. It can now travel up to 100 km/h in EV (electric only) mode. Our group spent the morning touring the small towns and backroads in and around Collingwood, Ont. The goal was not to test the MKZ Hybrid’s driving dynamics up, down and alongside the Blue Mountain. Rather, we were tasked with finding out which of us could squeeze the best fuel economy from this apparently penny-pinching powertrain. I say apparently because the posted Transport Canada rating of 4.2 litres/100 km (combined city/hwy) seemed far-fetched for a car this size — even a hybrid.

Back to the task at hand, which was trying to squeeze maximum fuel economy from this 1,746-kilogram (3,849pound) mid-size luxury sedan. Central to our success would be the Atkinson-cycle engine, which is efficient, but on its own only produces 141 horse power and 129 pound-feet of torque.

But, for the sake of this challenge, I curbed any leadfoot tendencies (and the urge to push our litres/100 km well into the double digits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just for a laugh) in favour of trying to win the title of Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hypermiling champ. I had little time to explore the MKZ interior, but a couple of features stood out. Firstly, I was smitten with the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;floating bridgeâ&#x20AC;? centre console, not just because it looks cool, but also for its additional storage below. Secondly, I liked the pushbutton transmission. The traditional mechanical shift lever has been replaced by individual buttons for park, neu-

this is not a plug-in hybrid, the MKZâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regenerative braking system captures up to 90 per cent of energy normally lost during braking, with the system itself helping slow the vehicle. This hybrid system routes power seamlessly to the front wheels using the gas engine, electric motor or a combination of both, depending on terrain and driving style. Drive uphill or lean heavily on the pedal and both gas and electric come into play. Step lightly and with even pressure and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; depending on battery charge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can run on electrons-only for a surprising distance.

Especially if you employ gentle, steady braking and strategically use downhill coasting to keep the battery topped up. It became a bit of a game along the way, with the braking coach providing my efficiency score, the display letting me know exactly where power was coming from and when I’m recharging, and the battery monitor keeping tabs on the reserve available for EV driving. By the end of our test, I was surprised to learn that nearly half our driving was electriconly and, although we never hit the lab-tested 4.2L/100 km combined, we did score a respectable 5.1L/100 km. Unfortunately, that wasn’t good enough to win the prize, as the top team achieved remarkable 4.9 litres. The MKZ Hybrid

starts at $38,350 for base, $39,345 for Select trim, $41,700 for Reserve and $45,650 for Preferred and provides a rich list of available content that includes blind-spot information with crosstraffic alert, heated steering wheel, cooled front seats, heated rear seats, navigation, parking sensors, power trunk and more. And there are standalone packages that can add adaptive (radar) cruise control, active park assist, lane-keeping system and other driver tech. Lincoln has put much thought into this vehicle, not only on design and price (it starts $5,550 below the Lexus ES 300h), but in terms of entering a market segment that is expected to grow by 23 per cent. The Hybrid is no sports sedan, but does enough in terms of

God looked around His garden And found an empty space; He then looked down upon this earth And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest; God’s garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain He knew you might never Get well upon this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered, “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you But you never went alone. For part of us went with you The day God called you home.

  The More You Give

The more you give, The more you get,

December 19, 1920 ~ August 14, 2011

The more you laugh, The less you fret. The more you do unselßshly. The more you live abundantly. The more of everything you share,

Leonard was predeceased by his stepson Richard. Len was employed at the age of 19 in the Pulp and Paper Industry. He started his career in Saint John, N.B. from there to Prince George, then to Kamloops. Len was a dedicated worker; his service as a union rep for P.P.W.C for 21 years was a testament of his devotion to fair and equal treatment of his union brethren. Duty done, Len retired in 2006. Together with Bev life was now all about enjoying travel, winters in Palm Springs forging new friendships such as Mike who held a special place in Len’s heart.
