LAKE WOULD LIKE TO SEE ANOTHER ‘EA 101’ By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.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 dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

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.

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

W

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.” editor@kamloopsthisweek.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 dale@kamloopsthisweek.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.

OFFERING WSET WINE STUDIES FOR THE 1ST TIME EVER IN KAMLOOPS! Register now at winecollege.ca for classes in Kamloops. Classes start October 7th. ANGELA LANDON T: 604.988.8009 E: alandon@aii.edu www.winecollege.ca

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

Creative Beginnings 1400 Hugh Allan Drve (Beside Aberdeen McDonald’s)

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.

GLOBAL VIEWS

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

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 sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

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-

Broncos blow halftime lead in loss By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.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.”

Chicklets broken in Blazer sibling collision By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

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.

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.

White Buffalo Society is Setting the Stage The White Buffalo Aboriginal and Metis Health Society is looking for women to take part in a project. Setting the Stage for Young Women starts with focus groups to discuss the kinds of issues young women deal with when facing life challenges. Co-ordinator Roberta Scharuda said the agency is looking for women between the ages of 19 and 24. They don’t need to be aboriginal, but must have lifestyle challenges they are working to overcome. The groups will begin as soon as enough women register and will continue to October, when the second stage of the project kicks in. Focus-group participants

have priority in registering for this part, which co-ordinator Lisa Armstrong said will address economic prosperity and why many women are not able to achieve it. For many, it’s a lack of skills, Armstrong said, or poor role modelling. For example, Armstrong said she dealt with two teenaged girls last year, both friends and both raising babies. When she spoke to them about their life choices, each said they had the babies at the same time period so the children could also grow up to be friends — and that they were prepared to live on welfare, if necessary, because their mothers had done so.

“We want to help the women gain the skills and knowledge to make better decisions,” Armstrong said. At the end of the second phase, each participant is expected to take on an awareness campaign of their choice — create a poster, organize a walk, speak with media, talk to students. Participants receive certificates they can add to their resumes, something that is often key for young women living a poverty-entrenched lifestyle, but struggling to escape from it, Armstrong said. Those interested can call the agency at 250-5541176 or visit the office at 517A Tranquille Rd.

He also has a lengthy list of award nominations and wins going back to 2004. Blaine strummed his first guitar when he was eight and started writing songs when he was 16. His debut album also generated songs that

hit the top of Canadian country-music charts. Tickets are $42.50 plus taxes and service charges and are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1035 Lorne St., 250-3745483 or online at kamloopslive.ca.

Santa Fe XL Limited proves size matters By Jim Robinson WHEELBASE COMMUNICATIONS editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

D

ESPITE WHAT YOU MAY have heard, there is, and always will be, a need for a vehicle that fits in a normal garage and has seating for up to eight. For decades, the queen of the peoplehaulers was the minivan — and it still is. But, the rise of the sport-utility vehicles during just the past 15 years has been astonishing. Now, SUVs come in all sizes, price ranges and uses. Hyundai, never one to leave a viable niche unplumbed, offered the Entourage extended minivan and, more recently, the Veracruz SUV that more than filled the bill. With the advent of direct-injection engines, lighter, but more-rigid, chassis and ingenious new people-packaging methods, you can have a mid-size SUV and seat up to seven people all in one vehicle and that’s

what the 2013 Santa Fe XL is all about. While the five-seat Santa Fe offers a choice of two four-cylinder engines, the 215-mm longer Santa Fe XL is fitted with Hyundai’s new, direct-injection 3.3-litre V6 as the only engine, mainly because of the weight of its greater 6/7-passenger seating. The 3.3-litre produces 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. The XL is available in front- or allwheel-drive and both use a six-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic manual sequential shift mode. Fuel rating for the FWD version is 11.6/7.8/9.9 L/100 km city/highway/com-

bined and 11.7/8.0/10.0 L/100 km for the AWD. The Santa Fe XL increases secondrow legroom by 50 millimetres and cargo capacity by 156 litres, relative to its five-passenger sibling, with a nice touch, including rear-passenger HVAC controls and vents. The standard 50:50 split-folding thirdrow bench seat has 800 millimetres of legroom. Customers can opt for a 40:20:40 splitfolding second-row bench seat for sevenpassenger versatility or a six-passenger layout with second -ow captain’s chairs.

B uckle up with B rittany

The interior is festooned with beverage holders of all shapes. Thoughtfully, each one has a little ridged bottom so drinks and water bottles don’t clatter around when moving. When it comes to electronics, the South Koreans are probably the best in the world and that proves to be true inside the Santa Fe. The XL is available with three audio systems, starting with a standard AM/FM/ satellite radio/CD/MP3 audio system with six-speakers and iPod/USB/auxiliary connectivity. XSee HYUNDAI B7

Too much information? Not from the Corvette Stingray The advanced cluster display in the Corvette Stingray can provide up to 69 unique sources of information, ranging from an interactive performance timer to a tire-thread temperature display. The crisp and bright display features make this information easily accessible via three configurable modes that prioritize information for daily commuting, weekend canyon carving and track events. Flanked by three analogue gauges for speed, fuel level and engine-coolant temperature, the eight-inch liquid-crystal display screen in the centre of the cluster is organized into sport, tour and track themes that change with the driver mode selector. Each theme is designed for a specific driving scenario and can be configured through applications found in the app tray. Here are 10 configurable display features that will help drivers realize the Stingray’s capabilities: 1. Tour theme — Displayed when the Stingray is in Weather, Eco, or Tour-drive mode, this is the most modern display, providing essential vehicle information drivers want for commuting or long-distance driving and includes key vehicle information and multimedia displays. 2. Sport theme — Displayed when the Stingray is in Sport mode, this theme is designed to recall the classic sports-car experience, with a single, radial tachometer dominating the display. 3. Track theme — Inspired by the cluster of the Corvette Racing C6.R, this theme prioritizes the information vital for a successful track outing, including a hockey stick-style tachometer, large gear indicator and shift lights. 4. Adjustable redline — All themes feature an adjustable redline that shows the suggested maximum engine speed as low as 3,500 r.p.m. when the engine is cold. 5. Tachometer halo — The Sport theme features a ring around the tachometer that glows from yellow to amber to red as engine r.p.m.s increase. 6. Shift lights — The track theme features shift lights influenced by the C6.R, which illuminate from the outside-in, transition from green to yellow to blue and flash at redline providing an easy-to-see shift notification at high speeds. 7. Friction-bubble/cornering force — The friction bubble that displays lateral and longitudinal G-forces allows drivers to measure how close they are to the Stingray’s limits. 8. Tire temperature gauge — Leveraging the existing tire-pressure monitoring system, this patented system informs the driver as the tires warm up from cold to warm to hot, with hot being the optimal temperature for peak grip and track performance. 9. Acceleration timer — The interactive timer features programmable start/end speeds, which enable drivers to measure any acceleration run. 10. Lap timer — Shows current, previous and best lap times, enabling drivers to measure their consistency while lapping a road course.

Hyundai knows how to move people XFrom B10

Tested here is the Santa Fe Limited AWD fitted with a superfast navigation system, a 550-watt Infinity Logic 7 audio system with 12 speakers, including an eight-inch subwoofer and external amplifier. An XM satellite radio interface is integrated into each head unit as is a Bluetooth hands-free phone system with voice recognition, address-book download and audio streaming. LCD screen-equipped systems integrate rear-view camera output. The third-generation navigation system starts with an eight-inch touch-screen display and is simpler to use, thanks to enhanced voice-recognition commands and improved navigation screens. Drivers and passengers will find it more intuitive. For example, pop-up messages now appear to help sync a phone, while voice-recognition software now understands street addresses and cities all in one sentence. Where it really excels is on highways, where route screens display speed limits and detail the next three required manoeuvres. It is much easier to use and understand than I can explain in words and definitely worth a test drive just to see how it works. The 2013 Santa Fe has every safety feature you can think of, such as seven airbags, but one of the more interesting is the vehiclestability management (VSM) system that incorporates a rolloverprotection system. What it does is control the electronic stability control (ESC)

and the motor-driven power steering (MDPS) to help the driver maintain control of the vehicle in slippery conditions or during fast cornering. Should the vehicle lose traction, VSM can deliver up to eight Newton-metres (units of torque) of counter-steering effort to help keep it on the road. A traction-control system (TCS) is also included. Keeping with the ways the Koreans are dialling in electronics into their cars and trucks is Hyundai’s new driver selectablesteering mode (DSSM) system. It has three operating modes (comfort, normal and sport), allowing the driver to configure steering response to road conditions and his/her driving style. I’ve tried this a few times now and find normal is the best for allround driving. Sport adds a 10 per cent stiffness to the steering while comfort

relaxes driver input for the long haul. My AWD Limited came with the topline saddle-leather interior, adding a near-luxury feel one expects from the Germans in this segment. There is an icon of the Santa Fe in the centre driver display. At start up, it shows a beam passing from stern to stem as part of a maintenance check to see if everything is functioning. It’s like a little bit of Star Trek in your people hauler. While the new V6 is smaller for 2013, its direct injection makes it more responsive and as more powerful plus more frugal in operation. But, what owners will like is the way the power and torque are applied by the six-speed, making for transparent gear changes with the steering wheel communicating a feeling of solid grip at the road surface. Part of this is due to fact the

Santa Fe is 178 kilograms lighter than the Veracruz — and advances made in steering and road holding between the two make for a much better handling package in the new one. This comes to the fore on downtown city streets where girth and sloth are hindrances, as any full-size SUV or pickup-truck owner will tell you. You can access any underground parking without fear of skinning the roof on a height restriction bar.

Another great feature of the XL Premium is the full-length sunroof that is great on sunny days — but it also gives you a reassuring view of the height bar as you pass underneath it. The Santa Fe XL comes at a time when Hyundai needs a strong seven-seater in its model portfolio. By keeping the outer dimensions tight and the inner ones enough for seven, Hyundai’s 2013 Santa Fe seems to have found the perfect people-mover solution.

Elmiraj concent car designed to explore top of Cadillac’s range Cadillac has revealed the Elmiraj Concept, a grand coupe expressing the pure enjoyment of driving and exploring new dimensions for Cadillac’s ongoing expansion. The Elmiraj Concept, shown during the recent Pebble Beach Concours weekend, showcases a new vision for luxury driving and the top of the brand’s expanding range. A modern update to the classic format of a two-door grand coupe, Elmiraj is a pure expression of streamlined design and engaging rear-wheel drive performance. At 205 inches (5,207 mm) in overall length, Elmiraj is four-seat coupe with presence

and poise. Taking up from where the memorable Ciel Concept left off, Elmiraj is a statement of pure luxury and performance with a purposeful character and proportion. The concept advances Cadillac’s philosophy of dramatic design and performance, and its commitment to lightweight, agile cars. Elmiraj is constructed with chassis and structural elements of an ongoing Cadillac vehicle development project slated for future production. Elmiraj is powered by a 4.5-litre, twin turbocharged V8 delivering an estimated 500 horsepower. The engine takes

the baseline technology from the new Cadillac Twin Turbo V6 featured in the upcoming 420 horsepower, 2014 CTS Vsport edition, and expands it to the classic performance format of a V8 engine.

The Elmiraj Concept from Cadillac is called a showcase for a Ònew visionÓ of luxury driving.

Out of the Ashes, Into the Dust arrives in September

YES, DRAGONS CAN FLY A dragonfly at night is captured by the camera as it enjoys the late summer evening in Kamloops. If you see one in your home, welcome its presence as these guys feast on mosquitoes and other intruders you do not want in your abode. Allen Douglas/KTW

Five of the top mountain-bike racers in the country are heading to Kamloops for Out of the Ashes, Into the Dust, a two-day bike camp in September for young men whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse. The event, sponsored by the Phoenix Centre, is for males ages 15 to 25, said agency executive director Sian Lewis — and the goal is to raise enough money to give the participants not only two days of fun and education, but new bikes and riding gear so the skills they learn they can continue to enjoy. To assist with that, the participants will also be connected with the local mountain-bike community to provide ongoing mentoring in the sport. Taking part in the program will be: • Brett Tippie, a Canadian professional mountain biker and snowboarder who has raced the World Cup circuit for the Canadian national team and hosted a sports show on television, as well as being the colour commentator for CTV’s Sportsnet World Cup of Snowboarding for four years; • Dylan Sherrard, a fixture in biking videos and magazines and an

It is with heartfelt sorrow that the family announces the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Giuseppina Scalise passed away after a brief illness on Tuesday, August 20, 2013. She goes to join her husband Francesco Scalise, parents Gabriele and Anna Torchia and one sister and brother in law Carolina and Francesco Lucia Born in Amato, Catanzaro, Italy, Giuseppina was the second eldest of eight children. Giuseppina married Francesco on May 6, 1951. She took care of her family by working long hours on their farm in Italy. In March 1968 Giuseppina and Francesco brought their young family to Canada to reunite with family members. Giuseppina worked as a dishwasher for 18 years to help support the family. After retirement she spent many hours gardening, canning and cooking. Giuseppina is survived by her children Maria, Tina (Nikola) and Joe (Karen), her grandchildren Martin (Adrienne), Tanja (Jim), Nicole, Nicole (Oliver), Jordane and Brodi-Jo and six great grandchildren.

GORDON KEEFER

HONEY

September 27, 1943 – June 19, 2013

Jean Plecash was born May 4, 1932 in Grand Forks, BC. Her parents were Michael and Lucille Purich. Family moves took her to school in Hedley, Victoria and Princeton. She met her husband Lorne in Princeton and they married in February 1953. She is survived by her loving husband Lorne, son Guy of Calgary, daughter Jan and grandson Ethan of Toronto, brother Bill (Ellen) and family in Washington and many dear ones.

WILF BRADLEY June 22, 1937-Aug. 27, 2010

Jean was predeceased by her brother David and sisters Betty and Barbara. Jeans married life began in Ucluelet with a move to Vancouver and then to Kamloops. In November 1977 at a neighbour’s bible study she was born again by receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as her own saviour. She brought the gospel message home to her husband who read his sins have separated him from God, so he repented and received the Lord Jesus Christ as his own sin bearer and saviour as well, for only the Lord Jesus Christ has the authority on earth to forgive sins. Jean and Lorne have treasured the fellowship and love of the Christians at Westsyde Gospel Hall since. Our family knows that Jean has loved us well, most very well and you have guided the home and family in a godly fashion these sixty years plus. The Lord recompense you hon. We will miss your contributions of love and contentment. It is not easy to not have you here, still we have the blessed memories to cherish and encourage us in the days ahead. We will keep them to go ahead with us. The good woman is beyond price indeed!! Joy to you Jean in the presence of the Lord and loved ones with him in a far better place. The family would like to give a special thank you to Dr. P. Yanko, Kamloops Hospice, the Young Red Beard Roasters for her special nourishing ice caps and to all the well wishers. A Funeral will be held 1:00 pm, Thursday August 29, 2013 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel with J. Eggers and E. Stanyer of the Westsyde Gospel Hall officiating.

Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Celebration of Life Reception It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon Keefer Honey on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at the age of 69, with loved ones at his side in Kamloops after a battle with cancer. Gordon is survived by his loving wife Debbie, sons Rod and Tyler (Amanda), grandchildren Jack, Henry and Abbey, his two sisters Karen (Clayton) and Gail and many extended family members and friends. At his request, there will not be a funeral, but a Celebration of Life “cocktail party” Saturday, August 31 from 2 to 4 pm at the Colombo Hall, 814 Lorne Street, Kamloops (lower level) with a tribute and open mic beginning at 2:30. Casual attire is most appropriate – wear your favourite fishing shirt, as Gordon didn’t like suits and ties!

Forever In Our Hearts Loving wife Ann & Family
