LAKE WOULD LIKE TO SEE ANOTHER ‘EA 101’ By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Now that he’s in charge of health rather than the environment, Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake no longer has to remain neutral on the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine. But, that’s not changing his position on the project. “There are people who have legitimate concerns and I understand those concerns,” Lake said. “I still own a home in Aberdeen and I totally understand
those concerns. I have some very close friends that have those concerns. But, I think to know whether to be concerned, I need to know the information and we’re still not there.” Lake said more of his constituents in the North Kamloops area tend to contact him about how they approve of the mine, but he has not taken a side. “I still take the position that, until we have all the information, it’s difficult to take the position.” With KGHM’s application for environmental assessment unlikely to be filed before next year, there is one area where he thinks the province can take action in the interim.
Lake would like to see the Environmental Assessment Office do another “EA 101” seminar in Kamloops, explaining how the process works and giving the public a chance to ask questions. “It may not be a bad idea to do another one and then these kind of concerns could be addressed,” Lake said, noting he would also like to see the session address other permits the mine will need to operate. “It almost becomes a full-time job trying to follow the process, so I understand how people could get a bit exasperated by it,” Lake said. “I think doing that public information session would be helpful for people to understand.”

Kamloops photographer Don Ehman at the spot in the Hanging Lakes area north of Clearwater that produced an award-winning photo that will be produced nationally on boxes of Royale tissue paper. Ehman climbed the 900-foot series of rocks and footholds to get to the spot, Fiery Dawn, was taken.
VIEW TO A ROYALE SHOT By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
When Don Ehman returned to the spot in the Hanging Lakes area north of Clearwater, he was ready. He climbed the 900-foot series of rocks and footholds to get to the spot, a trek he had made before. It was on the previous trip he realized on the descent — when he needed to stop, get his bearings, drink a litre of iced tea and eat some sandwiches “or I would have been in serious trouble” — an overnight would be required. Ehman had his provisions but, more importantly, he had his tent, which he pitched and in which he spent the night just to be up to catch that magical moment. It arrived at 5:45 a.m. and Ehman was ready, walking about 25 feet
away from his tent, his Canon 40D set to snap a glorious sunrise. The end result, Fiery Dawn, will be featured countrywide on boxes of Royale facial tissue as part of the company’s Inspire Us Collection, one of eight photos chosen in a competition that brought with it some nerve-wracking moments for the Kamloops man. Ehman had known he wanted that particular location since he spotted it on Google Earth. “It took me three weeks to find it,” he said, “and when I looked over and finally saw it from a mountaintop, it was spectacular.” His day job is fixing computers, but his passion is hiking and pho-
tography, something that runs in the family. Ehman’s sister was one of the winners in the Royale contest last year. “So, I paid attention to it, too,” he said. His father is a prolific photographer, Ehman said, and helped him with all the technical aspects he needed to take what was originally three shots of the same sunrise and meld them into one.

Winning the contest — which also includes a $1,500 prize — wasn’t easy. With more than 9,000 photos submitted, the first cull was done by a team of judges and a large number of them were then posted online for the public to weigh in. Ten photos were removed from the competition every week, with Ehman checking every Monday to see if he made it through. When there were just 10 left, it
went back to the judges to choose the winners. Ehman said the prize money is the most he’s ever made from one photo, although he has sold some of his works in the past. “I don’t do it looking to sell them,” he said. Ehman has been taking photographs since the 1980s and the change to digital was welcome. “You could be walking through the forest with a few rolls of 24-shot film and it just wasn’t worth it,” he said. “Now, you can take hundreds and hundreds of shots. “Even your cellphone is omnipresent” to capture an image. He used PhotoShop CS6 HDRI software to work with the photo as he put it together, noting the software can replicate “all the tricks that used to be done in the darkroom” without taking hours to do them.

Kamloops’ Conservative MP doesn’t think Canada’s laws on marijuana should be guided by whether or not MPs have smoked pot. “If you talked to people in Kamloops and you said, ‘Listen, when you were younger, a kid, did you ever take a candy bar from a grocery store?’, you might have a lot of people who say they did do that,” Cathy McLeod told KTW. “Just because we have a lot of people that indicate they do something, that’s not any reason to change laws or make laws.” In an interview with Huffington Post
Canada this week, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said he has smoked marijuana about a half-dozen times, noting he has used the drug since he was elected to Parliament in 2008. Trudeau is advocating for legalization of marijuana in Canada and believes government regulation of the drug will make it harder for teenagers to access and wrest control of the pot trade from organized criminals. NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair has also admitted to smoking pot in the past, but was less specific on when. McLeod said she tried marijuana a couple of times in her university days, but doesn’t like Trudeau’s admission that he has smoked a joint as a sitting MP.
“I think when you are a member of Parliament, you are a legislator. You need to be cognizant and a good role model in terms of the laws of our country, regardless of whether you agree with them or not,” she said. McLeod also disputes Trudeau’s claims about legalization, claiming legalization would make underage smoking even more of a concern. She said her Conservative government is concentrating on changing its policies on medical marijuana, to have the drug grown by government contractors instead of individual users. McLeod said a more relaxed drug policy for non-medical users isn’t on the table.

Campers rejoice — ﬁre ban lifted The campfire ban in the Kamloops Fire Centre has been lifted — just in time for the Labour Day long weekend. The ban had been put into place on Aug. 1 but, due to recent rain, the risk of wildfires has decreased, said Kayla Pepper, a fire-information officer with the centre. However, open fires in cat-
egories two and three — all fires larger than a half-metre-square, fireworks, industrial burning, fires requiring a burn registration number, sky lanterns and burning barrels — remain banned. Campfire regulations require all flammable material be removed from the campfire area, a shovel or no less than eight litres of water must be on site, the fire
must never be left unattended and must be cool to the touch before anyone leaves. Violation of an open-fire ban can result in a ticket of up to $345. If the fire causes a wildfire, the person who started it could also be fined up to $1 million, face up to three years in prison and be required to pay all firefighting costs.
Record-setting summer in Sun Peaks Sun Peaks has already set a record for visitors to the resort community for the summer — and the numbers are expected to continue to soar with the free outdoor concert on Saturday, Aug. 31. Resort-occupancy
numbers from June to September are seven per cent above last year, with August alone 15 per cent ahead of last year. Christopher Nicolson, president of Tourism Sun Peaks, said there has been a noticeable increase
in visitors from the Lower Mainland and Okanagan regions. Saturday concerts include: • 11 a.m. on the Clocktower Stage: Axel Montaner • 12:30 p.m. on the Upper Plaza Stage: Anita Eccleston Quartet
• 2 p.m. on the Clocktower Stage: UnoMas • 3:45 p.m. on the Main Stage: Poppa Dawg • 5 p.m. on the Main Stage: Colin James • 7 p.m. on the Clocktower Stage: Frapp City.

After an audit of the society books was completed, the city still had questions about the group’s accounting practices and what appeared to be two instances of $100,000 each being moved out of society bank accounts for several months and then returned.

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Former Kamloops city councillor Joe Leong is scheduled to be back in provincial court on Tuesday, Sept. 3, for arraignment on six charges. An arraignment hearing is one at which an accused enters a plea. Theft over $5,000, breach of trust and two fraud charges were laid against Leong in July. The charges came after Kamloops RCMP was asked by city administration to look into the finances of the Kamloops
amid bickering. The heritage train has been parked after repairs to the engine were ordered by Transport Canada. The estimated cost of the repairs is about $400,000. At its annual general meeting earlier this year, a new executive was elected and told society members it has a three-phase plan to get the train rolling on the tracks again. Parts of that plan are underway, with the engine of the train being taken apart to determine how much work is necessary for it to meet federal requirements that will allow it back into service.

Seattle PD has progressive chip on collective shoulder
HEN POTHEADS gathered in Seattle for the annual Hempfest festival on the weekend, the police were well trained and ready, armed to the teeth with — Doritos. Yes, Doritos. In a deliciously forward-thinking strategy, the men and women in Emerald City blue decided to send a message in a light and playful way. The department’s decision to have officers hand out bags of Doritos with stickers containing warning and advice was a brilliant move — and one other police agencies everywhere should think of emulating. Yes, voters last year decided to make recreational pot use legal in the state, but that does not mean marijuana use is a free as the Wild West. Like alcohol, marijuana remains strictly regulated in Washington (and in Colorado, the other state to legalize recreational use in the November 2012 initiatives). In fact, people lighting up outside at Hempfest in Seattle were indeed breaking the law as public use of marijuana, like public consumption of alcohol, remains illegal. However, rather than issue tickets to every Cheech and Chong in the throng, the Seattle PD decided instead to be proactive and funny, by handing out bags of Doritos to revellers. Affixed to each bag of cheesy delight was a sticker. “We thought you might be hungry” was the headline on the sticker, below which contained information on the specifics of the new law on marijuana use. For example, while recreational pot
CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom
MUSINGS use is legal in Washington, it is still illegal to possess more than an ounce, to smoke it in public, to drive while under its influence and to sell it without a licence. Not unlike alcohol, come to think of is, which is where Canada should be heading, rather than continue on its path to the failures of the past, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s nonsensical war-on-marijuana approach that has done nothing but prove its failure every step of the way. While voters in Washington and Colorado decide to embrace common sense and police in Seattle decide to pull back on the traditionally histrionic reaction to pot, Ottawa decides to build more prisons and make organized crime smile all the way to the bank. Much has been made about federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s admission that he has smoked dope while an MP. Choosing to break the law while elected and employed as a lawmaker is rather foolish and Trudeau should not engage in any illegal activity if he wishes to remain not only a lawmaker, but one who leads a federal political party.
However, there are lawmakers at all three levels of government who have broken the law by driving faster than the posted speed limit. The latter is far more serious than Trudeau’s transgression unless you are among the stubborn among us who cling to the belief Reefer Madness was a serious documentary and that smoking a joint will lead to a life of misery — both of which are laughable claims still being argued with serious faces. Not long ago, I had a good-spirited debate with a former police officer who remains adamant that marijuana should remain illegal as it is indeed a gateway drug that has led many to the horror that is the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver. We had this debate while consuming alcohol, a legal drug far more devastating to person and society than marijuana can ever hope to be. The point I was trying to make was this: Even if I accept that marijuana is evil and responsible for every poor soul now ravaged by addiction to harder drugs, such a scenario has occurred during prohibition. If illegal marijuana has given birth to organized crime and all sorts of personal hell, what do we have to lose by trying a legalization/regulation/taxation approach? We have nothing at all to lose — not even our sense of humour, as demonstrated by those cops in Seattle on the weekend. Among the “do’s” and “don’ts” on those bags of Doritos was a very relevant “do”: “Do listen to Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume.” email@example.com Twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds
Failed BC NDP leadership candidate Dana Larsen and his group Sensible BC are set to kick off their campaign next month to force a referendum on marijuana policy. Much like the ultimately successful Fight HST petition in 2010, Larsen hopes to use the Recall and Initiative Act to force an end to what he sees as archaic and draconian drug laws. Specifically, Larsen and his group want to prohibit the use of police resources in B.C. to enforce drugs laws aimed at the possession and use of marijuana. Larsen will need to get more than 10 per cent of registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts to sign the petition in order to force a province-wide referendum on the issue. He’ll have 90 days to do it, beginning next month. Larsen is no doubt emboldened by the success of the Fight HST campaign, not to mention the recent move by Washington state to legalize recreational marijuana use. The message is clear: Marijuana prohibition does vastly more harm than good. It’s a message that is increasingly finding an audience. An Ipsos poll conducted last year found that 66 per cent of Canadians support the decriminalization of marijuana in small amounts. Twenty-five years ago, that number was just 39 per cent. Marijuana prohibition funds organized crime, wastes tax dollars, wastes police resources and makes the drug easier for young people to obtain. Larsen should be commended for going after an issue that most politicians are too afraid to touch. His message is one that deserves to be heard. — South Delta Leader

Kamloops mom Crystal Booth, who was paralyzed in a 2001 crash that killed her husband, ahas had a run of bad luck and KTW reader Kevin Schuurman is stepping up to help while challenging fellow companies in his industry to do likewise.

Big Brother will surely soak us all Editor: Concerning water meters, has anyone thought of this? Who really wins? Big Brother, of course, which will get to charge/price fix (as the years go by) for whatever is deemed appropriate. I hope that no one is fooled into thinking that, when it comes to the subject of making money, that those setting the price for water used per litre will be saintly. You know the scenario — it’s money making up against having your best interests at heart.
For the more affluent in Kamloops who can comfortably afford their water usage, it’s probably not even a minor blip. Unfortunately, it is those who can’t do likewise and as comfortably (the other Kamloopsians) who will be left holding the dirty end of this stick — and conserving water. Either way, Big Brother gets its due, regardless if you are an affluent resident or those who are now carefully conserving water and counting their now-defunct pennies.
As the years are going by, just remember, it is Big Brother that has the full control of setting the price per litre regarding water. It is not the rest of us. The water-meter install program has made it possible for Big Brother to accurately record and charge everyone for every litre used of this precious commodity — and to create a cash cow for those in charge of setting the prices.

Editor: Re: The Aug. 22 letter from Yves Lacasse of KGHM Ajax (‘Zero harm is a core value of KGHM Ajax’): Lacasse has crafted a letter that appears to address community concerns about the proposed mine’s proximity to Kamloops. Plans to host four “communityinformation sessions” from Sept. 9 to Sept. 12 are based on the notion those who are opposed to the mine are uninformed and should “learn more about the research being done to assess potential impacts.” My impression is that either Lacasse does not fully understand the magnitude and nature of public concern or he is choosing to downplay and minimize the concerns. In any case, I hope the following information can lead to a more meaningful response from KGHM Ajax. Lacasse acknowledges “there are concerns on the part of some Kamloops residents.” At the end of the letter, he expresses his hope that “all who have concerns will take the opportunity to attend one of the sessions . . .” We are told “zero harm is one of KGHM’s core values, observed and followed at our operations around the world.” If this is truly the case, I look forward to hearing about how this “value” has been put into practice at other locations and how they have measured their success. Do residents living near their operations agree there is “zero harm”? My understanding is that KGHM’s “intention to evaluate and potentially reconfigure” its operation was prompted by the discovery of more mineral deposits. I do not recall proximity to Kamloops neighbourhoods as contributing to that decision. Will the location of the pit be changed? Will its size be reduced? How do the changes being considered translate into measurable benefits to Kamloops? Lacasse assures us that a series of studies are underway to examine potential effects of mine operations “and propose solutions to mitigate or eliminate impacts.” The key word here is mitigate or “reduce the severity of.” This seems in direct contradiction to KGHM’s professed value of “zero harm.” I am certain technical experts presenting at the forums are very capable and will demonstrate the comprehensiveness of their investigation. However, simply agreeing to conduct investigations does not, in itself, amount to “taking concerns seriously.” Much information about the negative effects associated with living near an open-pit mine is already available in reputable peer-reviewed journals. I have yet to see credible evidence that “zero harm” is achievable. In spite of Lacasse’s soothing comments, I do not believe KGHM Ajax has the best interests of Kamloops residents (present and future) at heart. In my view, a morally responsible corporation would never have proposed an open pit mine so close to a populated area in the first place. KGHM Ajax is simply taking advantage of antiquated mining laws that allow them to get away with it. Andrew Bezooyen Kamloops

LOCAL NEWS FUTURE SHOP - Correction Notice
Debbie and John Woodward have finally seen their dream of owning a winery at their farm in Westsyde come true, with a chardonnay and a pinot noir now available to consumers. Dave Eagles photos/KTW
Privato meets public and a dream is fulﬁlled By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

For more than two decades, Kamloopsians have headed to the Woodward Farm on Westsyde Road in December to pick out a blue spruce or Douglas fir to decorate for the holidays. These days, there’s a reason to visit in the summer as well — one years in the making. When John and Debbie Woodward first bought their farm 25 years ago, they dreamed of turning it into a vineyard. “But, at the time, it was just not doable,” Debbie said. “Financially, it was not in the cards for us at that particular point. And then, once the kids start leaving home, it’s kind of like an empty-nest syndrome. “You think, what now?” While mulling over their future on a vacation in Italy, the pair started visiting wineries and their decades-old dream came roaring back. Three years ago, the first grapes went in. Recently, the Woodwards’ Privato Vineyard and Winery released its second-ever offering, a pinot noir grown, fermented and aged on site. Their first wine, a chardonnay, was released last October. “We’ve been kind of quietly going about our businesses, primarily in the Vancouver area,” said Debbie, who handles the business side of the vineyard. “We haven’t had our red ready and we’re doing a real quality type of a winemaking process that just takes a long time. It’s taken almost three years now for the pinot noir to be ready. So, we couldn’t really offer that up to the folks in Kamloops until we were are a point where we had a red.” Both Privato wines are relatively small runs, about 7,000 bottles each, Debbie said. Over time, the couple hopes to produce up to 12,000 bottles per harvest, but anything much beyond that would be overkill. “We don’t really ever want to be a very big winery,” she said. Nor do they want to expand Privato’s lineup beyond its two burgundy wines at this point. While a riesling might be in the cards later on, John said the winery is at least a couple of years away from seriously considering it. The burgundies offered the Woodwards a chance to make wines a little differently from most of their B.C. contemporaries — less than two per cent of
In the August 23 flyer, on page 1, the Virgin LG Nexus 4 16GB was advertised “On a Virgin Mobile Supertab” but the Supertab is no longer available. The offer applies to 2-year Gold Plans (as stated in the fine print.) Also, on page 13, the Sony 47” / 55” W802 Series Smart 3D Slim LED TVs (WebCode: 10245469 / 10245470 ) were advertised with incorrect specs. Please be advised that these TVs have a refresh rate of 120Hz NOT 240Hz, as previously advertised. As well, on page 20, the Bose QuietComfort® 15 Headphones were advertised with an incorrect price. Please be advised that the headphones should be $296.99 save $33, NOT $269.99. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

ENDS the world’s wine is aged in the traditional burgundy style, John said. It’s also a challenge. “Everyone has said pinot noir is the tough grape to make wine from, so why not start with the toughest grape first?” John said. While it’s more amenable to the Kamloops climate, the pinot noir grape is a lower-yield crop than many other varieties. If it’s not carefully tended on the vine, the results can be difficult to swallow later. “Eighty per cent of the wine is made out here in the vineyard,” John said. “You’re always trying to look for a balance in the sugar and acid before you pick. You don’t want to pick too early, but you don’t want to pick too late, either. There is a balanced time to when you pick pinot noir.” Once picked and crushed, the grapes spend 18 months in oak barrels (less for chardonnay). Using wood instead of stainless steel means about a litre of vino evaporates through the wood per month, John said, but the flavour trade-off is worth it. “It makes a wine that’s well-rounded out. It doesn’t bite you when you drink it,” he said. “It’s quite smooth.” Both of Privato’s wines are available at the vineyard tasting room, open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. until October 15, or by private appointment. It’s also available at the Brownstone Restaurant on Victoria Street, at the Stag’s Head Liquor Store and at Sundance Fine Wine, Beer and Liquor Store in Sun Peaks.

Telus crew shell-shocked By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Ground-penetrating radar is being used at the Telus data-centre construction site in Kamloops after an unexploded ordinance was discovered. Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said workers uncovered the device on Thursday, Aug. 22, and stopped digging. Authorities were called, the area was evacuated and the device, an old shell, was blown up later that day. The site off McGill Road, near the city’s publicworks yard, that will house the Telus data centre was once home to the military, who used bunkers in the area to store many materials. Hall said Telus was aware there was some likelihood the ground would reveal military weapons and other items when it identified it for the $75-million site. “But, any site has previous history in the land,” Hall said. “The site was wellscreened for devices before construction and we are re-screening the area.” Hall noted no one was ever at risk, the safety plan worked well, authorities responded quickly
“and everything worked out the way it should.” The centre is part of a $100-million investment by Telus
in Kamloops to bring what it calls the fastest wireless technology in the world to life and expand its Optik TV footprint.
It has created about 200 construction jobs and, once in operation, will add 75 permanent information-technology jobs.

10 Ways of helping our children. While providing them with a comfortable home, a healthy environment and a good diet are all important concerns, but what can we do to help them even more? To allow them to grow to their full potential and to confront the challenges which they will face at school as well as in their personal lives? Here are ten tips and courses of action which aim to help parents promote and support their children’s development and in this way better help them on their path towards adulthood. 1- A structured lifestyle: children benefit from, and feel more secure, when they have a structured lifestyle. This is why daily routines are so important. 2- Plenty of sleep: sleep is an important factor in a child’s development. Many specialists believe that sleep is as important as a good diet. Between the ages of 3 and 5 years, a child needs an average of 12 hours of sleep per day. At the age of 10 this will change to 10 hours. 3- Clear rules of behaviour: all children need love but they also need guidelines and limits allowing them to control their behaviour within the family as well as in society. Parents must know how to set clear rules and put them into practice in a flexible but consistent manner. As well as equipping them for the future, this lifestyle will show children they are important in the eyes of their parents, which will, in return, reinforce the children’s respect for them. 4- Responsibilities: the fact of giving them responsibilities helps children to become independent and increases their self-confidence. Of course, these responsibilities must be adapted to their age and capabilities.

5- Encourage them to be active: the benefits of physical exercise and fresh air for children can never be emphasized enough. Encouraging them to play a sport or just to be physically active by playing outside, can only help their development, both physical and psychological.
8- Praise them: Encouraging and praising your children, congratulating them for their successes and their initiatives, will not only stimulate them in the learning process but will also help them to build a good self-image. 9- Do your children have complexes? Are they too small, too big, shortsighted or have ears which stick out? Find them positive role models, examples of famous people that were like them and with whom they can identify.

Vancouver institute perfects the art of wine How do you create an outstanding wine program? You start with industry leaders. The Art Institute of Vancouver understands the importance of building partnerships and collaborating with established organizations in the B.C. wine and spirits industry. The institute also believes in providing a well-designed wine education program supported by a proven track record for success in the culinary and hospitality industry. At the heart of the wine program is the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) curriculum, recognized across the globe and regarded as the gold standard in comprehensive training for the wine and spirits trade. The institute is the sole provider in Western Canada of the diploma issued by the London-based organization. WSET offers its pro-
grams in 58 countries and in 16 languages; last year, 43,000 students took a WSET course. Two of the courses are being offered in Kamloops in the fall — foundation in wine and wine service and intermediate studies in wines and spirits. More information on dates, times and costs are
available online at winecollege.ca/admissions/programschedule.aspx. For added value, the institute has called upon the diverse wine-training and knowledge of its instructors to create something unique. With the WSET syllabus at the core of all programs, it has incorporated additional material and instruc-
tional hours to better suit the needs of the marketplace and students of wine across Canada. This means exposure to a greater variety of wines, increased emphasis on foodand wine-matching and wine service, as well as more opportunities to work with instructors in developing the palate. The institute has been shortlisted for three consecutive years for the WSET Educator of the Year Award and, in 2009, it was the world’s first and only school to be awarded the Highly Commended Trophy by WSET. WSET has been providing training to the wine industry for more than 35 years, offering five qualifications split into four levels. The courses aren’t just of interest to the hospitality industry, however, with people who simply have an interest in wine also taking them.

Celebrate the new school year Why not organize a back to school party this year? Turning the first day of school into a festive occasion is a great way to start off the year on the right foot. You probably already know eating breakfast is vital for energy and for increasing one’s capacity to learn. Make your back-to-school breakfast a colourful affair. Set the table with fresh flowers and new placemats and concoct a healthy breakfast that’s a bit out of the ordinary. If your children aren’t hungry, a smoothie and a small homemade fatfree muffin are easy to manage, even for small stomachs feeling queasy with stress. Before leaving home, be sure to take the traditional photograph at the front door. The idea may seem old-fashioned to you, but these annual photos will become great memories for the entire family. Create an album just for these backto-school photos and, in a few years’ time, you will all have fun looking through it. When your children get home after their first day back at school, give them a surprise, a little reward to make them feel better after what can often be a

stressful day. You don’t need to spend a fortune to put smiles on their faces — serving their favourite meal or taking everybody out to a restaurant is a great way to finish off the day. Above all, this is an occasion to spend time together as a family, a moment to support each other in making the peaceful transition from the quiet of the summer to the regular school year routine.

Another defeat for the environment — and us
THE WORLD has failed us,” said Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa. “I have signed the executive decree for the liquidation of the YasuniITT trust fund and, with this, ended the initiative.” What might have been a model for a system that helps poor countries avoid the need to ruin their environment in order to make ends meet has failed because the rich countries would not support it. In 2007, oil drillers found a reservoir of an estimated 846-million barrels of heavy crude in Yasuni National Park, in Ecuador’s part of the Amazon. But, the park is home to two indigenous tribes that have so far succeeded in living in voluntary isolation — and it is listed by UNESCO as a world biosphere reserve. A single hectare of Yasuni contains more species of trees than all of North America. Ecuador, which cannot access finance on international markets, desperately needs money and the oil meant money — an estimated $7.2 billion over the next decade. Nevertheless, Ecuadorians were horrified by the pollution, deforestation and cultural destruction the drilling would cause: A large
GWYNNE DYER World WATCH majority of them opposed drilling in the park. Then Energy Minister Alberto Acosta had an idea. What if Ecuador just left the oil in the ground? In return, Acosta hoped the rest of the world would come up with $3.6 billion (half of the forecast income from oil revenues) over the next decade, to be spent on non-polluting energy generation like hydroelectric and solar power schemes and on social programmes to help Ecuador’s many poor. The payoff for the foreign contributors to this fund would come mainly from the fact the oil under Yasuni would never be burned, thereby preventing more than 400-million tonnes of carbon dioxide from going into the atmosphere. Only a drop in the bucket, perhaps, but if the model worked, it could be applied widely elsewhere, offering poor countries an alternative to selling everything they can dig up or cut down.
The idea won the support of the United Nations Development Programme, which agreed to administer the Yasuni-ITT trust fund. It was set up in 2009 and the money started to come in. But, it didn’t flood in; it just trickled. Chile, Colombia, Turkey and Georgia donated token amounts. Brazil and Indonesia (which would certainly benefit from the same sort of arrangement) promised donations eventually, but
didn’t actually put any money up. Among the developed countries, Spain, Belgium and France also promised donations, Italy wrote off $51 million of Ecuadorian debt and Germany offered $50 million worth of technical assistance to the park. And that was it. Not a penny from Canada, the United States, Britain, Australia, the Netherlands or Scandinavia. However, four years later, the pledges amount-

Prime Minister David Cameron’s office explained that “it is very important that local voters are taken into account when it comes to wind farms … if people don’t want wind farms in their local areas they will be able to stop them.” It’s OK to ruin the planet, but God forbid that you should ruin the view.

shale [gas] in the world.” Not only that, but there will be “no standard minimum separation distance” between a fracking rig and people’s houses.

NE OF THE MOST interesting position battles to watch during the Blue vs. White game will be waged in the crease at Interior Savings Centre on Wednesday, Aug. 28. Taran Kozun of Nipawin, Sask., is expected to be the starting goaltender come opening day, but the backup role is still up for grabs. There are three front-runners for the job — 17-year-old Liam McLeod of Kamloops, 17-year-old Cameron Pateman of Regina and 16-year-old

Cole Kehler of Altona, Man. Dan De Palma, the Blazers’ goaltending coach,
said it’s too early in the assessment process to give an edge to any of them. “Right now, you really just want to be in evaluation mode,” De Palma said. “You don’t want to get too hung up on one thing that’s real positive, or something that’s not so positive. “They’re all different, but they’ve shown they’re capable guys and their attitudes are great.” McLeod played last season for the Prince George Spruce Kings of the B.C. Hockey League, Pateman was with the midget AAA Regina Pat Canadians and Kehler played with the Altona Aces of the
Manitoba high-school league. The youngest of the three backstops said he has dealt well with the nerves that accompany constant analysis, knowing he is under scrutiny from those who will decide his fate. “They’re all out there with the clipboards,” Kehler said. “You know they’re there. You’ve just got to play your game and show them what you can do every chance you get.” It must be easier said than done, but De Palma has asked each of the netminders to have short memories after they make mistakes.

Games end By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Charlie Bruce picked up his home phone as chipper as ever, two days after the 26th B.C. Seniors Games ended. The president of the Kamloops Games was wiped, but still seemed eager to chat about the work done by his staff and volunteers. “I’m in the recovery phase, as are 1,300 volunteers,” he said. “It was just an outstanding Games. The feedback we’ve been getting, 98 or 99 per cent of it has to do with volunteers, who went above and beyond.” Bruce gave an example of one Games participant who, after needing assistance at Royal Inland Hospital, received a get-well card from a volunteer. “We have stories like that, one after another,” Bruce said. “What surprised me is that we had a core group of 1,300 volunteers but, little did I know, there were volunteers coming from outside the Kamloops area, from as far away as Nanaimo and 100 Mile House.” There were about 3,800 athletes in action at the Games, many of whom brought family and friends, contribut-

ing to an estimated $3 million in revenue brought to the city. Milt Kruger, chairman of next year’s Games in Langley, accepted the official flag and torch from Bruce at the closing ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 24. The Lower Mainland city has a lot to live up to, said Bruce. “I think we did an exceptional job,” Bruce said, “not only as hosts, but the entire city.” Now, it’s time to exhale. “My wife is stealing me away in an hour,” Bruce said on Monday morning. “She’s not telling me where she’s taking me but, she said, ‘I need to get you out of town.’”

Broncos blow halftime lead in loss By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
It looked as if head coach Duncan Olthuis might receive an early birthday present from his Kamloops Broncos, but another second-half collapse ruled that out. “Again, the first half was great,” said Olthuis of the Broncos’ 37-27 loss to the Vancouver Island Raiders of Nanaimo at Hillside Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 24. “Then the second half came and the mental mistakes started happening and they took advantage.” Olthuis turned 34 on Sunday, Aug. 25. He woke up with the realization that his charges were 0-4-1 in B.C. Football Conference play head-
ing into a bye week. The Broncos have two all-important games after the break — a tilt in Chilliwack against the Valley Huskers (2-1-1) on Sept. 7 and a home date with the Westshore Rebels (0-4) of Victoria on Sept. 14. “We have to win those games,” Olthuis said. “Those games against the Huskers and Westhore, we need to win to stay in the playoff race.” Kamloops held its own in the first half against the Okanagan Sun of Kelowna at Hillside on Aug. 17 and carried an 8-2 lead into the third quarter. Poor decisions, turnovers and defensive lapses in the second half cost the home
team, which went on to lose 23-8. On Saturday, the Broncos were up 19-11 at the half. Olthuis said a combination of mental mistakes, defensive breakdowns and a few questionable calls from officials led to the Broncos’ demise against the Raiders. “On defence, we gave up a 45-yard touchdown right up the heart of the field,” he said. “Then we had interceptions on offence and we weren’t finishing drives. “We were inside their 20 two separate times and came away with three points. That’s not good enough.” Quarterback Stephen Schuweiler returned from injury and threw
for 297 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions. He also scampered for a score. Olthuis said he was impressed with the offence’s performance. Connor Whitelaw, who started in Kamloops’ first four games, missed Saturday’s tilt with an ankle injury. Receiver Derek Yachison caught the TD pass from Schuweiler. Broncos’ running back Jacob Palmarin had an impressive day on the ground, rushing for 84 yards and one touchdown. He looked to have plunged in for another major in the second half, but officials ruled he did not cross the goal-line plane. Olthuis disagreed with the call. Recording intercep-
tions in a losing cause for Kamloops were Warabek Ayuel, Dane Douglas, Dan Orydzuk and Steve Liss. Anthony Arduini connected on a short field goal for the home team. Holding secondhalf leads against some of the league’s top teams in Okanagan and Vancouver Island is a good sign, but the Broncos’ head coach needs more than good signs if he is going to reach the post-season. “It does prove that we can play with any team in this league, but we need to have a killer instinct and learn how to finish off games,” Olthuis said. “We have to be absolutely perfect and win these games.”

WolfPack looking for golfers The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack golf team is hosting tryouts this week. Head coach Bill Bilton Jr. said he is looking for no fewer than three male players and one female player to join the squad,
which will compete this weekend against the
University of the Fraser Valley in the Coquihalla Challenge. The tryouts will be held today (Aug. 27), Wednesday, Aug. 28, and Thursday, Aug. 29, at the Dunes at Kamloops. “There will be a cut after two rounds,”
Bilton Jr. said. “The players we are looking for are good on and off the course. He or she should be willing to step up and do community events in the offseason and help with the program’s fundraising.” The Dunes is TRU’s home course.

Chicklets broken in Blazer sibling collision By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Brotherly love came in the form of a few broken teeth at Kamloops Blazers’ training camp on Sunday, Aug. 25. Mitch Lipon, 17, and elder brother JC, 20, were playing on opposing teams during a main-camp scrimmage at Interior Savings Centre. The younger Lipon hit one of JC’s teammates — “It might have been from behind,” Mitch admitted — and, then, this happened. “I passed the puck down deep and was going through the middle and I looked up,” Mitch said. “JC’s shoulder hit my face and my teeth kind of
just chipped off and I was picking them up off the ground.” JC, selected by the Winnipeg Jets in the third round of the NHL draft in June, said the hit was less about retribution than it was about finishing his check. “He was just cutting through the middle and had his head down,” JC said. “I saw him laying down. I thought he was winded, but he was picking up his teeth.” The brothers met to discuss the hit after the game ended. “He said it was an accident,” Mitch said. “He was trying to kill me, but he wasn’t trying to make me lose teeth. “I said it was OK. “It was not a big

situation than anything else. “She’s not going to be happy,” he said.

Pressure on Kozun to prove himself X From A23
“We take things as a whole,” De Palma said. “Goaltending’s tough. You’re going to make mistakes. How do you deal with that? What are you going to do when you make some mistakes? “We want them to feel good and have our support. When they feel that way, they’re going to give the best they have to offer. You want to see them at their best, not try to squash them and see them at their worst.” Kozun might be the No. 1 guy heading into the season,
but he has much to prove, having played in only 20 WHL games last season, a careerhigh. No. 41 was handed the reins when Kamloops traded Cole Cheveldave to Prince Albert on July 10. “I was actually kind of shocked,” said Kozun, who was 11-4-1-2 last season, posting two shutouts, a 2.36 goals against average and a .914 save percentage. “I wasn’t expecting it to be that early in the summer. After I thought about it, I was like, ‘Oh man, it’s my team,” so
then I was pretty excited and couldn’t wait to get out here.” The rosters for the Blue vs. White game had not yet been released as of KTW’s press deadline on Monday, Aug. 26, but Kozun, McLeod, Kehler and Pateman are each expected to get about half a game between the pipes. Game time is 7 p.m. at ISC. Tickets are $5. McLeod, like those he is competing with, has one thing on his mind. “I’ve just got to stop the puck,” the local product said. “That’s what we have to do.”
Tyrell Hamer-Jackson were all in the lineup on Sunday, as was Brendan Ranford, formerly of the Kamloops Blazers. Bosher recorded two goals and three points, Smith scored twice and Hamer-Jackson went 6-for-8 in faceoffs. Smith gave the Salmonbellies an 8-7 lead with less than eight minutes to play in the third period, but Dan Lintner of the Warriors tied the game less than three minutes later with a power-play marker.

KAMLOOPS & AREA
TO THE NORTH OF KAMLOOPS SITS THE
interior’s impressive Bonaparte Plateau, a sprawling wilderness covered by lodgepole pine and Douglas fir. This area is not only home to moose, deer and wolves, but home to many fine fishing lakes. Gorman Lake is a popular choice for many anglers g because,, not onlyy does its recreation site serve as a good base, but it offers excellent fishing throughout the open water season. It is popular with trollers because it is simple to navigate. There are two deep holes in the lake: one in the middle and one at the south end. Try spinners, willow leafs, Wedding Bands, Ford Fenders and Flatfish. With ample shoals to explore, especially between the two deep holes, this lake is ideal for fly-fishing. Troll flies, such as a dragonfly or leech pattern on a sinkingg line, slowlyy along the edges of the dropoffs. Due to the
lake’s high altitude, insect hatches (especially caddisfly) occur later. The high altitude also means the fishing action never slows down. Cool temperatures keep the lake from suff fering the hot-weather doldrums common at lower elevation lakes. In 2006, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC released 4,000 , Pennask rainbow trout into this annually stocked lake. Pennask fish are known for their hard fight and acrobatic nature. During the wildfires of 2003, flames engulfed forested areas near Gorman Lake. The burned areas are recovering well, and attracting moose, deer and bear in big numbers — an added bonus when seeking a Bonaparte wilderness experience. Other lakes in the area worth visiting include Allan, Dunsapie, Mayson, Windfall, Windyy and Whitewood lakes. Several remote walk-in or fly-in lakes are also nearby. F ILITIES: Like most of the FAC laakes in the region, Gorman Lake has a campsite and rough boat h laaunch.
