Unions bullish on settling issues with school district

SCHOOL DISTRICT 73

BY THE

NUMBERS

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

• 76 buses travel a total of 9,200 kilometres a day, covering 59 routes. • They consume 773,449 litres of fuel during a school year. • As of June 30, 14,605 children were enrolled for this school year. • Final projected enrolment is 227 fewer students. • Elementary enrolment has been increasing in recent years. • 1,400 staff are on the payroll. • By the end of the school year, about 2,000 people will have been on the payroll, covering for absences. • 13 schools have been closed since 2000. • 48 schools remain open.

It’s September, so slow down! The rules change for motorists today (Sept. 3) — cruise through a school zone at 50 km/h and you could face a hefty fine. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day school is in session, zones designated by yellow traffic signs require drivers to drop down to no more than 30 km/h, said Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush. If you are stopped by an officer — and they will be out in force for the first several days of school — the fine is $196 for those going over the speed limit,

but no faster than 50 km/h. Hit the pedal a bit harder and you are looking at a fine of $253. Blow through the zone at 70 km/h or more “and that’s excessive speeding,” Bush said, which could mean having your car impounded for up to seven days. Beyond keeping an eye on the speedometer, Bush said, motorists need to be particularly vigilant around elementary schools. “The little kids are excited,” she said. “They have their new shoes and their new backpacks and sometimes they jump out of

the car and dart out.” The RCMP traffic unit has a plan in place for the first days of school, Bush said, and the detachment’s school-liaison officers will be out spreading the message to youngsters to be careful when heading to and from school. Word will also be spread through the media and, every morning after the RCMP shift briefing, officers will be reminded on their way back from a coffee break to sit in a school zone for 10 minutes.

The Kamloops-Thompson school district and its teachers have had their eye on today (Sept. 3), the first day of classes — but they also have Sept. 9 highlighted on their calendars. That’s the first of nine days set aside in B.C. Supreme Court to hear a challenge by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) of government legislation affecting class sizes and support for students with special needs, among other education issues. It’s been a long time coming and, said John Churchley, assistant superintendent for human resources with the school district, it will have a direct impact on bargaining with the BCTF. In April 2011, after a decade-long battle through the court system triggered by the government’s legislation, the B.C. Supreme Court ruled the changes violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, ruling the legislation unconstitutional. The government was given one year to work it out with the teachers and, when that didn’t happen, the BCTF headed back to court. The final date for the hearing is Oct. 3 and the union is hopeful a ruling comes before winter so it can get back to the bargaining table. When it does, there are still plenty of hurdles. In late June, the BCTF voted 96 per cent against what it calls government interference in the negotiation process. After talks began in February, some progress was made but, in mid-June, the provincial government announced it was removing the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association as its bargaining agent and replacing it with one negotiator, freelance mediator Peter Cameron. He will be joined at the table by representatives of the B.C. School Trustees’ Association. One hot topic to yet be tackled is the province’s offer to restore teachers’ right to strike — something the Liberals removed when they became government in 2001 — if the BCTF agrees to a

10-year deal. The offer by Education Minister Peter Fassbender includes indexed compensation and the right to again negotiation class sizes. Churchley said bargaining talks with the Kamloops Thompson Teachers’ Association (KTTA) on local issues “had some success,” but the provincial level of bargaining is key — and the court ruling will set the tone as bargaining moves forward. KTTA president Jason Karpuk said his local has a good working relationship with the school district that is respectful and which he feels will reach resolution on local issues. Teachers and the school district are “doing the best we can with the resources we have,” Karpuk said. He is hopeful there will be improvements in teaching special-needs students, stating special education is “becoming unmanageable.” The other side of the labour coin involves the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which represents the support-staff and educational-assistant side of teaching. And, although provincially there is talk about possible strike action, John Hall, president of Local 3500, which represents Kamloops workers, said he’s positive about achieving labour peace. CUPE and the school district return to the table on Sept. 17 and, while other CUPE locals have taken a strike vote, Hall’s hasn’t and likely won’t as long as meetings remain positive with SD73. For a variety of reasons, Hall said, his local is a bit behind others in talks with the employer. He’s pleased school district superintendent Terry Sullivan has said he’s optimistic the tone will continue to get them to an agreement. “Any time you’re talking, it’s better than not talking,” Hall said. “We’ll do what we have to do if we have to do it, but I don’t want to be negative. “We’re all in this together.” The BCTF’s contract with the province expired on June 30.

No Harvestfest bounty this year By Dale Bass

FEATURES

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dieter Dudy is not sure what seat he will aim for, but count on his name appearing on the ballot in next year’s municipal election. One of the issues he will want to discuss, he said, is how “one person can complain and the whole neighbourhood can be affected by that one individual.” The issue is personal — after 13 years, the annual Harvestfest he has held at his farm on Dairy Road in Westsyde has been shut down by the city. There are a variety of reasons, Dudy said, but one of the key ones he was told about involves complaints from a neighbour about parking for the one-day event. The neighbour has been there since he introduced the celebration of farm-fresh foods, the food cycle and buying local, Dudy said. There had never been an issue with the cars that parked along the road so people could go to Harvestfest until a few years ago, when the neighbour complained fenceposts had been broken. While Dudy suspected the breakage was more likely from water mains being installed by the city — “since the cars weren’t parked next to the fence” — he bought new posts for the neighbour and offered to ensure for future events cars only parked on his side of the road. “But, he went to a councillor and the councillor had to deal with it,” Dudy said. Marvin Kwiatkowski, the city’s director of development and engineering, disagreed with Dudy’s assertion, noting there had been more than one person complain about events at the farm in recent years. “We’re not looking for trouble but, when there are issues about fire and safety, when something is brought to our attention and we go out and see things, we can’t ignore them,” he said. Kwiatkowski said Dudy will be bringing a plan to the city and a report will go to council,

hopefully within a month. Thistle Farms has to apply to the city annually for non-farm events and, this year, was approved for four — three weddings and a recent fundraiser for the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra. Dudy said his wife forgot to mention Harvestfest, but remembered later and spoke to a

city official about it. Dudy said she was told to email the request. After an on-site inspection, approval wasn’t granted, although Dudy was told he could apply again next year. Staff from the engineering department also found some other issues they ordered him to address, all of them minor, Dudy said.

City of Kamloops

Notice to Motorists The City of Kamloops would like to notify motorists, businesses and residents that rehabilitation roadwork will be commencing in September on:

- Battle St from 13th Ave to Columbia St - Lansdowne St from 2nd Ave to 3rd Ave

His parking situation would be improved if he was to rezone and apply to create more parking spaces on the farm. “But, that just takes land out of production and I’m not sure how the Agricultural Land Commission would feel about it,” Dudy said. Even the idea of what is called a non-farm event rankles Dudy, who said it

doesn’t fit what actually happens at the gatherings. “Even a wedding here has an agricultural feel for it. People are exposed to the food system. We feed them fresh foods. “You just can’t limit this [definition] to just farming,” he said. “You have to view it as an education, educating people to their food system.”

Half-million-dollar drug bust at depot A Campbell River man boarding a bus in Kamloops bound for Vancouver was arrested on Saturday, Aug. 24, with police seizing a large amount of drugs from his luggage - three kilograms (6.6 pounds) of cocaine and two kilograms (4.4 pounds) of heroin with a street value of about a half-million dollars. Cpl. Dan Moskaluk of the RCMP’s Southeast District Traffic Services said the arrest was a result of Mounties acting on a tip. The 45-year-old Vancouver Island man faces charges. His name has not yet been released.

The largest cocaine bust in Edmonton’s history took place on Aug. 1. Police in the Alberta capital seized 28 kilograms of cocaine they estimated to have a street value of $2.5 million, which works out to $89,000 a kilogram. Based on that calculation, the three kilograms of cocaine seized at the Kamloops bus depot on the weekend has a street value of about $267,000. Recent data from Canadian police forces pegs the street value of heroin at about $100,000 a kilogram, which would mean the heroin seized in Kamloops has a value of about $200,000.

Good Samaritans help cops collar criminal A man is in custody after a team of Good Samaritans tackled a burglar outside a downtown Kamloops business. Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said Mounties received a number of 911 calls at about midnight on Friday, Aug. 30, about a man smashing the glass storefront of a business in the 400-block of Victoria Street. “The person was able to get into the shop and searched the shop till and counters,” he said. Investigators believe the man

then left the shop through the broken window and began running down Victoria Street. “He was in full flight when members of the public that had witnessed the crime tackled him to the ground,” Ward said. The burglar was able to get back to his feet and began running again, with the Good Samaritans giving chase. Ward said the suspect ran into a parking lot, where police were waiting for him with open handcuffs. “This event went well, but

the RCMP wants to point out when people are cornered and fleeing, they may be desperate to the point that they use violence to escape with innocent people being hurt,” he said. “The police never want to see it turn bad for the general public.” Ward said the best course of action is for members of the public to keep a safe distance when witnessing a crime and report what they see to police. The investigation into the burglary is ongoing.

Sun Peaks school eyed for 4.4-hectare parcel A new school is still in the works for Sun Peaks, but going from idea to a hole in the ground will take a bit longer. Plans are to build a school on a 4.4-hectare piece of land alongside a park and recreational development. First, thought, the resort community must develop an official community plan (OCP) and submit it to the provincial government for approval. As part of its creation as a recognized municipal entity, Sun Peaks was to have had this done by June 28, 2012, a date that was

later extended to Dec. 31, 2013. In a letter to the Kamloops-Thompson board of education trustees, Sun Peaks Mayor Al Raine advised creating the OCP requires input from neighbouring communities and it does not appear this will happen in time to meet the year-end deadline. Raine advised trustees Sun Peaks council will ask for another extension, to June 30, 2014. School district Supt. Terry Sullivan said he is glad the community is planning for the school and he’s

hopeful it grows to a point where one would be viable. That number is difficult to predict, Sullivan said. “It depends on the location. Brenna Creek only has five children, but I said I would never close that school as long as there are children there.” Raine states in his letter a consultant should be hired by late October, a draft OCP ready by early next year for fine-tuning from all involved communities and the final document sent to the government by the end of June 2014. Raine told trust-

ees the recreational development is being eyed to hold an outdoor skating rink with hockey boards, a softball diamond, a soccer pitch and other facilities. A .12-hectare site has also been identified to hold a civic/ health-care facility that may be leased to the municipality and possibly also to the Thompson-Nicola Regional District for a library.

A salute to teachers and all they bring — even the welts

I

T WAS WHILE TURNED around in my desk, chatting with the guy behind me, that the soft, tri-striped eraser with the rock-hard back side arced through the classroom air, split two rows of desks, zoomed up the aisle and landed with a thud right behind my ear. That eraser left the hand of one of the best teachers I have ever had, Mr. Gladman, and I can still feel that Grade 6 welt today. It’s a feeling associated with the very best of my school days. Grade 6 was a year of firsts —first crushes, first overnight field trips, first rollerskating trips and first teacher who made a serious impression on students. Mr. Gladman wasn’t much older than us (at least he didn’t seem that much older) and was, therefore, seen as an almost contemporary in the teaching fraternity that had, until Grade 6, us looking at teachers as though they were all standing on the very cliff of retirement. Not Mr. Gladman, or “Bags,” as we called him. He was cool. He would teach in very different ways. He knew how to help you find your passion among the subjects. He would spend all lunch hour in the classroom, debating sports with the students. He would stay long after the final bell, talking about life or playing floor hockey with us until the janitors kicked us out of the gym. And, yes, he would deftly utilize chalkboard erasers, or dense textbooks, or taped-up wads of paper as aerial weapons when the boys among us insisted on not listening during a lesson. Back then, we accepted the brief pain from a Gladman missile as the price to pay for goofing off; today,

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS such acts would likely result in court hearings — reason No. 546 why things were so much better then than now . . . Today (Sept. 3) marks the start of the 2013-2014 school year. For kids, summer is done and it’s time to get those brains working again. For parents, it can be time to remember the Mr. Gladmans of our youth, those special teachers whose remarkable gift in the classroom remains fresh in our minds decades after the fact. Is there another profession in which the talent and passion of those employed can have such a significant and lasting impact shaping lives? So, in honour of this, the real start to the year, a salute to the teachers who stay with me yet: • To Ms. Wood, my Grade 1 teacher, my first-ever teacher, who introduced a boy of six to his first rapid heartbeat. Ms. Wood, you see, had only recently been crowned Miss Abbotsford. • To Mrs. Martens, my Grade 4 teacher who perfected the schoolmarm look and who shared my love for zany BCTV weatherman Norm Grohman, often interrupting a math lesson to share laughs about the pervious night’s News Hour antics of Crazy Norm.

• To Mr. Anderson, my Grade 7 teacher who may have been almost as hockey crazy as us boys and who had a heart of gold. It was he who palmed the slip of paper bearing the name of the girl with whom I was madly in love, holding the piece of paper to the end as students pulled names for Christmas gifts — and dropping it into the empty hat when I was to pick the final name. • To Mr. Stewart, the legendary librarian/gym teacher/basketball coach of the Fraser Valley who would constantly bring out newspapers for my Grade 8 mind to read and read and read. • To Mr. Toews, a high school teacher who could barely smile and rarely laugh, but whose strict teaching style was so good that, today, 27 years later, I still know all the details of Louis Riel and the Red River Rebellion courtesy of an inventive system of organizing the issues involved (language, religion, racism, etc.) into a neat little poem. • To Mr. Ratzlaff, whose unbridled passion for history was as addictive as crack, whose teaching style was so energetic one was exhausted when the bell rang. On. Jan. 28, 1986, on the morning the space shuttle Challenger exploded, history was my first class and Mr. Ratzlaff suspended the usual lesson and sat at the edge of his desk, just talking with his students about the tragedy. I think he did that all day. To these teachers and all others whose marks on this world — via lesson plans and airborne projectiles — live on in the minds and bodies of kids of all ages, welcome to a new school year. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

The Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development is considering banning anonymous contributions in municipal elections. The B.C. government is considering reforms to legislation that governs our every-third-year local elections. Details are expected in a white paper, to be released soon. With local politics in some B.C. cities starting to emulate Vancouver’s party system and third-party campaigning, the time has come for voters to know who the identities of the would-be kingmakers. Minister Coralee Oakes indicated new legislation will require third-party advertisers to register and disclose their identity. Time allowed for consultation will delay campaign spending limits for candidates, organizations and third-party advertisers until the 2017 civic elections, but those changes are expected, too. Oakes, a former Quesnel city councillor, expects improved transparency and accountability and called the reforms the greatest modernization of local government-election legislation in nearly 20 years. Changes would affect voting for municipal councils, school boards and regional districts. Although the response from the NDP local government opposition critic is typically critical, the president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities is pleased by the proposals. That’s no surprise considering the UBCM has been recommending local election reform. Vancouver-style civic politics saw the NPA, Vision, COPE and the Green Party collectively spent $5.2 million in the 2011 elections. Vancouver’s major municipal parties spent more than $15 for each vote they received.

THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Letter: If Ajax approved, I will move from Kamloops: “Why not run a poll on how many residents will leave Kamloops if this proposed crazy project is approved?” — posted by Jim Downie

Re: Story: RC flyers grounded by City of Kamloops: “Why is this an issue when everything was being done safely? “I have flown on McArthur Island for years and never had any problems. “I even had a member of bylaws stop and watch me fly a few times. “Come on, Kamloops officials, if we are known for our sports and recreation, why ban something that is a sporting and recreational? “City staff is insane to think these tiny planes pose any kind of a threat to anyone or anything. “The geese pose more of a threat to airport traffic than does an R/C model. “So, if a goose flies into someone’s head, will the city ban Mother Nature, too? “For those who can’t drive miles from town to fly, where do they go?” — posted by Mike Walkley

About Ajax’s ‘zero-harm’ stance . . . Editor: Re: The Aug. 22 letter from Yves Lacasse, external-affairs manager for KGHM Ajax (‘Zero harm a core value of KGHM Ajax’): What will happen when the dust is gone and we are left with a hole in the ground and a pile of rubble that can be seen from space? Dust and declining property values will be the least of our worries. Have a look at this Frontline documentary and send it to everyone you know: http://www.pbs.org/ wgbh/pages/frontline/alaska-gold. This exactly what Kamloops will be looking at 20 years down the road — a 1,000-foot hole filled with battery acid. Goodbye river, goodbye salmon runs, goodbye anyone taking water downstream. Kamloops has a problematic groundwater problem and any fluids accumulated in the proposed Ajax mine will eventually end up in the Thompson River. Go to the 30:48 mark of the documentary to see what Kamloops will look like after Ajax has taken what it wants and leaves the people of Kamloops and B.C. to clean up. It describes the copper-sulfide Berkeley Pit in Butte, Mon., that closed in 1982. This is called perpetual remediation, as in we will have to clean this mess forever. Watch the complete program if you want some insight into how these mining outfits use subterfuge, abstention and obtrusion to further their cause. Ken Barry Kamloops

Editor: Re: Andrew Bezooyen’s letter of Aug. 27 (‘Zero harm not possible with mine’): I appreciate Bezooyen’s rational approach to the ridiculous claim that a mine can produce zero harm. The sentiments expressed by letter writers Johanna Walters and Mary Kay Claydon in the Aug. 29 edition of KTW further underscore the fact the only good mine is a mine far enough away to protect health. Open-pit mining is a dusty, environment-hurting, health-harming activity. Attempting to foist such a mine on the rim of an urban valley population of 87,000 is worse than irresponsible. KGHM’s promise to “mitigate” means only it will try to make the operation less harmful. Less harmful than what? Even the best of new technology can only attempt to reduce negative impacts. It cannot prevent them. If we are not convinced by the warnings of local doctors, miners with first-hand experience and other professionals, such as the atmospheric physicist living in Kamloops, we have only to check out sites like

TALK BACK

http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/ mining.aspx. Websites such as these discuss the problems with noxious particulate matter — arsenic, cadmium, lead and more — in acid-mine drainage, in harm to fish supplies, in toxic dust that would blow across the valley, with increase of respiratory illness. Many of us may be inclined to give KGHM Ajax a break, assuming that because the world needs copper and gold, it therefore has the right to re-explore old mines that were built when Kamloops was a baby town. The company risks the high cost of exploration on the assumption environmental-assessment authorities will agree “mitigation” is enough protection. KGHM Ajax need never have taken this financial gamble if our provincial leaders had not been napping for so many years about the subject of the Mineral Tenure Act, passed with the conditions and population numbers of the 1800s in mind. We need all of our elected officials at every level, especially provincial, to correct this untenable situation. Colleen Carbol Kamloops

City council needs to seriously address tanker route Editor: “The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things: Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax — Of cabbages — and kings — And why the sea is boiling hot — And whether pigs have wings.” — Lewis Carroll When I consider Kamloops council and administration lately, the above quote immediately springs to mind. I don’t know what world they inhabit, but it certainly is not one I can fathom. The most recent example was the reaction to the tragedy in Lac-Mégantic, Que., with the rail-car explosions. I admit I didn’t follow the local news closely, but the only reaction I heard from council was Pat Wallace worrying about CPR, with no mention of the CNR mainline running adjacent to Brocklehurst residential neighbourhoods. What really befuddles me, though, is that council and the administration failed to notice the greater potential for this type of

On The Go?

disaster in the form of large tanker trucks (I’m told upwards of 100 per day) running up and down Tranquille Road at 70 km/h per hour in heavy traffic every day. What really hurts is there is an alternative route the administration has held back from reports on the tanker-truck problem and, in fact, from one of the traffic plans. So we paid for an technical researcher to look at the problem, but didn’t tell him there is the possibility of a third route (his study was limited to Tranquille Road vs. Ord Road) and then used his conclusion that while Tranquille is unsatisfactory, Ord would be worse as an excuse to do nothing. The administration has hung its hat on a report that states the route will be necessary when the population of Kamloops reaches approximately 120,000. What bunk. The route was needed years ago and the longer its delayed, the more likely we will be faced with a Lac-Mégantic-type situation. The cost of the alternate route is probably

small compared to “Randy’s Road” from Summit Drive to McGill Road and would actually benefit a large portion of the populace by making their lives immeasurably safer. Prior to amalgamation, Brocklehurst had the foresight to set aside land for an alternate route to the airport should we arrive at the situation we find ourselves in today. Not only did the planners post-amalgamation drop the requirement, but they continue to permit construction on the land that will eventually be needed to complete the right-of-way. Aside from the safety benefits of a new route, consider the good, first-impression impact upon visitors to Kamloops Airport. It may be time to start looking for candidates for the next municipal election who care about all of Kamloops and who will acknowledge the North Shore is an integral part of the city worthy of attention. Peter Oswell Kamloops

Here are some tips that will hopefully guide you in your search for the right daycare.

with care

Preschool & Daycare provide opportunities for 3 to 5 year olds to develop social skills, meet peers and explore learning through hands-on activities and experiences.

How do they deal with difficult children?

Will they contact the parents?

The ratio child-worker is very important. The younger the children, the smaller the ratio as each worker should be able to look properly after a limited number of children.

Kamloops United Church

Registration is available now and throughout the year as space becomes available. Contact dOPLHin Centre for Registration packages and information on the following programs.

Ask those that are in charge what is their educational philosophy and methods.

Make a list of all your requirements. A good daycare facility will offer a clean, airy and secure environment inside and out. All games and toys must also be safe and secure for children and have enough to go around.

Can they deal with emergency situations? What has been put into place in case of emergency?

How do they deal with behavioural problems and aggressiveness in children? You will surely have your own questions, your own concerns and your own demands and requirements for those that will look after your child. The chosen daycare facility will be part of your family life for the next 5 years; it is important to choose it carefully!

Preschool Helping Children Develop in Harmony with Life

Ask to see their activity list and schedule. A good daycare should not only “occupy” the children, it should also provide the necessary experiences to learn and grow. Often, there are special events geared towards the small ones. Puppets, music and little plays all stimulate the imagination. Playground activities are ideal for socialization.

Find out what kinds of daycare are available throughout your region. It could be privately owned facilities; municipal authorities run some daycares while others are provincially subsidized. Some companies as well as some offices in educational and public sectors offer their own inhouse daycare services.

Daycare with Class! He is still just a little mite but mom and dad already feel stressed: what will they do once the little one needs to go to the local daycare? Admittedly, there are financial considerations; but beyond these, choosing the right daycare facilities is not easy. The “shopping” must be done early on. You might now have your fourth child while the other three all attend a daycare of your choice and a special place has been reserved for the young one. But other parents, especially new parents have to go through stressful times.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Watch children for back-to-school anxiety Back-to-school can trigger stress in some children, but there are steps parents and caregivers can take to help. “The start of the school year can be a really positive time, full of new opportunities for young people, but it can also be overwhelming for some,” said Dr. Connie Coniglio of B.C. Mental Health And Addiction Services. “If your child isn’t looking forward to school, they may be experiencing stress or anxiety. “While some children and youth thrive on the back-to-school excitement, others may need a calming, reassuring environment to support them during this transition.” Anxiety — feeling worried, nervous, fearful — is normal from time to time in adults

and children. It’s a problem if your child seems to be anxious often when other children of the same age are typically not, it negatively affects their functioning and/or your family life and if it doesn’t get better over time.

Signs and symptoms: • Attempts to remain at home or with caregiver. • Refusal to attend school on certain days (field trips). • Refusal to eat in public. • Refusal to use public bathrooms. • Extreme shyness, avoiding social situations or events. • Tantrums, crying, screaming. • Constant worrying. • Physical complaints with no medical explanation (stom-

ach aches, headaches, difficulty catching breath). • Seeking comfort/ reassurance.

Tips for parents and caregivers: • Provide regular routines — morning, school, homework, bedtime. • Provide clear expectations, limits and consequences. • Plan for transitions — getting to school, returning to school after breaks. • Help your child identify his or her feelings — nervous, intimidated, shy. • Pay attention to your child’s feelings. • Ask your child if they have ideas or solutions for a particular concern. • Show yourself identifying your own feelings, problem solving and being brave. • Remain calm when your child is

anxious. • Hold realistic expectations that are right for child’s age. • Praise and reward even their small accomplishments.

Mental-health resources: • MindShift: An interactive app designed to help youth learn how to relax, develop more helpful

ways of thinking and identify active steps that will help them take charge of their anxiety. It is available free to download from the iTunes app store or Google Play. • Mindcheck.ca: Information, resources and interactive quizzes designed for youth and young adults to help them identify and understand

BACK TO SCHOOL

Post-secondary students still need parents Going away to college or university marks a milestone in the lives of young adults and their parents. For the child, it’s an exciting time to develop new relationships, take on additional responsibility, and develop their own identity. For parents, it can be a time when they begin to ask themselves, “What role do I play?” Dr. David Wolfe, director of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Centre for Prevention Science, has developed a tip sheet to help parents better communicate and build healthy relationships with their children as they transition. • Be a parent, not a friend: While growing up children learned to depend on you for mature advice and guidance. Continue this role and step back a bit from needing to know everything in their life. • Don’t intrude: Let them make new friends, while knowing you’re still a major part of their life. Try to resist the temptation to contact them too often, through emails, text messages, Facebook and phone calls. • Don’t pressure: Parents are sometimes too eager to see their kids find their niche, settle their plans and reach their goals.

This can come across to them as pressure or demands. • Avoid “helicopter parenting”: Some say today’s parents are more hovering and protective than previous generations, which can make the process of transition difficult for some who are used to daily contact with parents. Be willing to back off and let them grow. • Encourage new ideas: College and university is a time to explore new options and be exposed to new possibilities, so encourage them to investigate new courses and interests, even if it could mean a change in focus or delay in completing their degree. • Be supportive: It is important for students to feel supported, but still in charge. Students who learn to manage the tension and worry associated with academic and social changes end up more successful and well-adjusted. • Encourage friendships and connection: Students who develop meaningful relationships with peers have fewer emotional and physical symptoms of stress. Encourage them to try new interests, develop new friendships and go to new places. Encouraging connection is espe-

cially important if your child lives at home. • Be a touchstone of maturity and good advice: In an effort to make friends and fit in (or to cope with stress and anxiety), some students engage in excessive drinking, drug use, promiscuous sexual activity and other health-compromising activities. Rather than telling your child what they can or cannot do, let them know what you expect of them, how proud you are of their efforts and that you are available if they need advice. • Assist with time and money management: Many students are ill-prepared at managing their time or their finances, which contributes to stress. Resist the temptation to reduce stress by giving money — remind them of their choices and help them plan a budget. • Recommend academic and student-counselling resources: Academic or mental health counselors can help students find the right courses, learn better study habits, and can also assist with all other aspects of health and well-being, including therapies to improve coping skills and strengthen relationships and connections.

A man’s best friend, a goose’s worst enemy By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE GOOSE Dog isn’t what she once was, riding in a golf cart alongside her best friend, Jim O’Connor. These days, there doesn’t seem to be much point in chasing birds. It’s pretty comfortable riding shotgun. Birdie, O’Connor’s 14-year-old border collie, is old. “Birdie’s been a great companion,” said O’Connor, Rivershore Golf Links’ golf superintendent for the past 16 years. “The first few years, she was running at least 50 per cent of the time. Now that she’s become a senior girl, she’s pretty much a rider.”

Having four-legged friends on golf courses has become commonplace. “It’s pretty much the goose poop that’s the problem,” said O’Connor, who, at 69, is planning to retire next year. “The geese in and of themselves are a pretty neat animal, but they eat quite a bit and they digest it pretty quickly. It’s kind of messy.” Originally from Toronto, O’Connor has been around golf courses his whole life, working in Ontario, Alberta and B.C. “It’s in the family,” he said, noting his uncle owned a course in Paris, Ont., and another uncle, a golf architect, helped design Oakdale Golf and Country Club, one

In the distance, a flock of birds begins to realize Birdie and Jim O’Connor are gaining ground. Marty Hastings/KTW

Nestled with Jim O’Connor, her owner, Birdie seems relaxed. The geese at Rivershore Golf Links are safe, if only for a moment. Marty Hastings/KTW

of the nation’s finest private tracks. There was some resistance to the idea of a canine at Rivershore when O’Connor first arrived. Membership and the local public weren’t sure it was a great idea. “I think I can say this now. When I first came here, some of the folks

were pretty anti-dog and I was trying to figure out how I could get a dog here,” O’Connor said. “There are lots of geese around here, so I thought, ‘Aha! We need a goose dog.’ “It didn’t take very long. Most of the folks in the subdivision and the members on the course took owner-

ship of Birdie and they allowed her to ride along with me while I did my thing.” Border collies are the right breed for the job, programmed to herd sheep, perfectly capable of running animals off a well-groomed fairway. “They just move the geese on,” O’Connor said. “The dog never really hurts them. As soon as they see the dog, they take off.” Birdie was the runt of a litter of eight, purchased 14 years ago at a ranch in Knutsford. She’s shy, for a border collie. It’s a trait that lends itself to working at a golf course. “I think the members worry more about her than me,” said O’Connor, easily found

at the break of dawn most mornings inside the course’s maintenance cabin. “I’m just kind of here. With her getting older, people are pretty concerned that she’s getting along well. They’re always asking, ‘Where’s Birdie?’” Birdie’s still at Rivershore. When she leaves, there’s another member of the O’Connor family ready to take over. “Now I’ve got a dog named Koda,” said O’Connor, the longesttenured employee at Rivershore. “It’s a rescue dog from the SPCA in Kamloops. She’s got a lot of lab in her, so she’s hardwired to chase birds as well.” O’Connor hasn’t

thought all that much about retirement. He plans to ski at Sun Peaks Resort and walk the dogs. That’s about it for plans. He’s not sure how his wife will handle him being around all the time at their Rivershore home. “You’ll have to come around in a few years’ time and ask me that,” O’Connor said with a smile. The only thing he knows for sure is life will be a little different — a little lonelier — without Birdie. “I think anybody knows that’s had an animal that they become part of your life,” O’Connor said. “It’s like losing someone in the family.”

MARDI GRAS THEME AND CONTEST

Kamloops’ Jessica Hewitt will be going to Sochi, Russia, in 2014 as part of Canada’s short-track speed-skating squad that will compete in the Olympic Winter Games.

• 18 fantastic holes of golf with shared power carts • Scramble format / 1pm shotgun start • 8 hole in one prizes • Pre game lunch • The Dunes Gourmet Buffet • Prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers • Silent Auction • Range Balls • Specialty food & beverage holes • Prizing for everyone

Media Sponsors:

Hewitt can taste the Olympics Canada’s top 10 short-track speed skaters have been nominated by Speed Skating Canada to vie for a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games in February. Among the five females is Jessica Hewitt of Kamloops. She is joined by Valérie Maltais, Marianne St. Gelais, Marie-Eve Drolet and Jessica Gregg The five males are Charles Hamelin, Olivier Jean, Charle Cournoyer, Michael Gilday and François Hamelin.

“Canadians were born to skate and we are delighted that these amazing athletes are the first to be nominated by Speed Skating Canada to contend for the opportunity to wear the Maple Leaf in Sochi,” said Marcel Aubut, president of the Canadian Olympic Committee. Hewitt and the other nine skaters nominated will now compete in four remaining International Skating Union World Cup events this season, the last two of which are Olympic qualifiers, in which Canada’s nominated athletes will contend for Olympic placements

Lipon signs with NHL Jets; Blazers add D-man Verveda JC Lipon has signed a two-way entry-level contract with the Winnipeg Jets. The 20-year-old from Regina has played with the Kamloops Blazers since 2009, racking up 188 points, 61 of them goals, in 248 games. He was selected by the Jets in the third round of the NHL draft in June. Lipon played five games with Canada at the 2013 world junior hockey championships in Ufa, Russia. His younger brother Mitch, 17, is a forward with the Blazers. • Meanwhile, the Blazers have signed 16-yearold defenseman Travis Verveda to a standard Western Hockey League contract. Verveda was added to the Blazers protected list in February after suiting up for the Red Deer Northstar Chiefs of the Alberta Minor Midget League. The six-foot, 165-pound defenceman scored 14 points in 32 games last season. “Travis showed his potential with a strong training camp,” said Blazers’ director of player personnel Matt Recchi. “His game has continued to improve day-byday. “We look forward to watching his progress.”

in the 500-metre, 1,000-metre and 1,500-metre events in Sochi. Up to three spots in each distance are up for grabs. In order for any country to secure all three placements, racers must finish in the top 32 in the 500-metre and 1,000-metre events and top 36 in the 1,500metre race. In the women’s 3,000-metre relay and men’s 5,000-metre relay, only the top eight teams will qualify to race in Sochi. The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will take place from Feb. 7 to Feb. 23, 2014.

New memberships are now at a 25% discount. When 4 new members join the club they will only pay for 3. You can sign up for any membership in any combination of full play or limited play and the discounts apply.

KGCC will also allow all new memberships that are 50% paid in advance to golf free for the remainder of 2013 after September 1, 2013. Buy a full membership and golf the rest of 2013 for free, you also get free

That’s an additional $1,200 value for the 4 new members. "So, here's the deal," says Harold. "Your best value is 4 full play new memberships at $1575 each. "That is unlimited golf with no restrictions". You get 4 Free Jr. Memberships and free range balls for all 4 members. "If you add it up, it is a $10,800 package for only $6,300. You save $4,500.

OW DOES A TOWtruck driver in small-town B.C. achieve television fame without moving or changing vocations? Pure luck. That’s what happened to Jamie Davis, the man behind a Hope-based heavy-rescue company bearing his name and the star of Highway Thru Hell, the second season of which premieres on Discovery Channel tonight (Sept. 3). Davis’ family has worked in the towing business for generations, but a chance encounter had a few years ago by one of his drivers, Adam Gazzola, changed everything. “Adam, he actually was towing a guy in a five-ton moving van on the Coq,� Davis told KTW. “They had a conversation and Adam asked him, ‘What do you do?’

The second season of Highway Thru Hell premieres tonight (Sept. 3) on Discovery Channel at 7 p.m., and plays again at 10 p.m. Last year, when the series debuted, it set the record for the highest-rated premiere in Discovery’s history. For Season 2, the Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue crew “He says, ‘I work in TV — I worked on the show Deadliest Catch last season.’ “So, Adam says, ‘You should come up here in the winter time. It’s a gongshow — it would make for some really good TV.’� At the same time, another one of Davis’ employees, Kevin Ritchie, was making a

Davis said a five-year contract was signed “with us knowing nothing about TV.� Now, with Season 1 in the

Highway Thru Hell makes use of the often-brutal winter conditions on the Coquihalla as a backdrop for a reality-TV series about Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue.

Jamie Davis crew struggling to maintain ‘normalcy’ in spotlight X From B2

They ended up being hounded by fans at truck stops and in malls. “Locally, in Hope, a lot of people already knew us, so I don’t think it’s such a big deal at a local level,” Davis said. “But, the popularity of the show — you get noticed everywhere. “It’s kind of a neat novelty at first, but simple things like going to a truck stop to get fuel, it’s hard to maintain that normalcy. “A lot of people love the show, and you do your best to try to be polite to all of them.” For fans who became familiar with Davis et al in the first season of Highway Thru Hell, the bright-red Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue trucks have become easy to spot on the Coquihalla and, sometimes, even on the streets and highways of the Tournament Capital. “Our main operation area is from Hope up that corridor to Kamloops, Hope to Princeton and Hope to Lytton,” Davis said. “But, we do some long-distance stuff as well. “It’s not uncommon to see one of our trucks in Los Angeles or Toronto, believe it or not.” And, now, the company has an office in operation in Fort McMurray, serving the notoriously dangerous Highway 63 in Northern Alberta. Davis said the expansion east was necessitated by a drop in crashes on the Coq — something he attributes, at least partially, to the amazing wreck footage shown on Highway Thru Hell. “One thing we know that’s a real fact is since the show’s come out, we’ve seen a substantial reduction in accidents,” he said. “I think because of the focus of the show, we’ve seen a reduction in business.” Davis said anyone who enjoyed Season 1 of Highway Thru Hell will like what’s in store with Season 2. “Season 2, I think the production of the show becomes much more polished,” he said. “And, for lack of a better term, the show takes some pretty wild turns. “You think you’re in control of the business, and all of the sudden something happens. “There’s a few things that came along in the way — the reduction in accidents, some new competition. “We had a really hard year.”

Westsyde winery receiving CHBA-CI announces early praise with award Keystone nominees The accolades have started early for Privato Vineyard and Winery with a recent Silver Medal in WineAlign’s National Wine Awards of Canada 2013. The award-winning 2011 Chardonnay was Privato’s inaugural vintage, hitting select high-end B.C. restaurants last October. “The award is very humbling for us,” said Debbie Woodward, proprietor of Privato Vineyard and Winery. “This winery has been a dream of ours for years and to have our first vintage receive such recognition is a wonderful testament to the time we’ve put into it.” Last June, the competition put Privato’s 2011 Chardonnay up against 91 other Canadian-grown oaked chardonnays. The wines were judged blind by a panel of the country’s leading wine writers and tasters. “We’re excited to see

the wine industry grow in Kamloops,” Woodward said. “And, this award will help bring attention to our area.” Privato Vineyard and Winery is a familyowned winery situated on the banks of the North Thompson River. They create small quantities of well-crafted burgundy wines, available online at privato. ca or from their tasting room on Westsyde Road in Kamloops. WineAlign was developed to help consumers make informed buying decisions about wine, and has grown into a vast resource for wine consumers. Their Annual National Wine Awards of Canada are open to all wines grown and produced in Canada. The full list of award recipients will be released in September. For more information, go online to winealign.com.

Silver nominees who will compete for gold Keystone Awards from the Canadian Home builders Association-Central Interior have been announced. The finalists for the awards to be presented on Sept. 28 at the Delta Sun Peaks include: Advantage Insulation, Blue Green Architecture, Bridgeport The Floor Store, Brown’s Repair Shop, Copper Island Fine Homes, Dueck Construction, DW Builders, Gatien Realty, GSI Inc., Homes Development, K&C’s Construction and Renovations, Kamloops Home Hardware Building Centre, Kamloops Truss, Lamoureux Developments, Meranti Developments, Motivo Design Group, Noremac Concrete Pumping, Pittman Construction, Powder Ventures, ROI Media Works, SA Electric, Sun Rivers Construction, Tenth Ventures, The Kamloops Lightpost, Thompson Rivers University School of Trades and Technology and Wrabel Brothers Construction. Finalists were chosen by a panel that included John Friswell of CCI Renovations, David Pfeutzner of Acorn Homes and Robert Capar of Maison d’etre DesignBuild on Aug. 28. Tickets for the gala dinner and presentation are on sale at the CHBA-CI office, 921C Laval St. For more information, call 250-8281844.

It’s a great sipping wine – a Rosé on the front porch by the lakeside on the Shuswap, on a hot summer day. Ah, perfect! It is during summer we enjoy Rosé the most - that is the common perception because it is a great sipping wine. Right! And while we drink Rosé more frequently in warm weather, Rosé is also great in fall and winter and spring. It is a wine for all seasons because it is also food oriented. And, so there is more to defining Rosé than just by a season of the year. In fact there has been little appreciation for the wide variety of enjoyment of Rosé. Rosé may be just what you are looking for all year long – youthfulness, joy, light, crisp – the right wine and food combination to lift your emotions. Elizabeth Gabay, Master of Wine, writes on the internet, “speak to winemakers in Provence and most will say it is the most difficult wine to make – to get the colour right with no tannin, to get enough fruit, and enough acidity, neutral or a bigger wine to go with a meal.” In other words there is as much craftsmanship in making Rosé as red and white wines. Celista Estate Winery produced its first Rosé in 2011. My wife’s mother’s name was Rosé so it was fitting to name our Rosé wine “Marg’s Rosé.” It ‘s a lovely and complex wine that won a gold medal in the Northwest Wine Summit drawing competitors from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and British Columbia. Rosé wines are made from red grapes. Rosé Champagne or sparkling wines are exceptions because they are also made with white grape varietals. And, there are also winemakers who add a little white wine to their own blend of still Rosé wine. Rosé wine incorporates some of the colour from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. Rosés are made from a wide variety of grapes and can be found all across the globe. Spain and France (best known for its red wines) lead the world in production of Rosé wines. Interestingly in the last 15 years Rosé production in the Rhone Valley has increased from 7% to 15%. Last summer a lady from France visiting our winery stated that Rosé has become very popular with the French.

Rosé wines may be the oldest type of wine as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The colour can range from a pale onion skin orange to a vivid near purple, depending on the grape variety used and winemaking techniques. When the first wine labeled as a Rosé was produced is not known but it is likely that many of the earliest red wines made were closer in appearance to today’s Rosés than it would be to modern red wines. This is because many of the winemaking techniques used to make today’s darker, more tanic, red wines ( such as extended maceration and harder pressing) were not widely practiced in ancient winemaking. Both red and white wine grapes were often pressed soon after harvest - with very little maceration time - by hand, feet or even sack cloth creating juice that was only slightly pigmented. Following World War 2, two Portuguese wine producer families both released sweet, slightly sparkling Rosés to the European and American markets. These wines, Mateus and Lancers, would go on to set record sales in Europe and the US and dominate the Portuguese wine industry for most of the 20th century. While they still have a presence in the European and US markets, the trend toward traditional, drier Rosés, as well as the American blush wines like White Zinfandel, have cut into their market share. There are four major ways to produce Rosé wines: Bleeding – juice is obtained by stacking up the wine grapes in a tank and letting the grapes’ weight do the crushing. Pressing – the grapes are processed through a press until the juice has the desired colour. Limited Maceration – the most common technique used. The skins are left in contact with the juice. Runoff – the process whereby the winemaker removes the juice from the tank of fermenting red wine. So this fall, winter and spring explore, and refresh your enthusiasm for Rosé By Jake Ootes, Celista Estate Winery Jake Ootes is owner of Celista Estate Winery, located on the north Shore of Shuswap Lake at 2319 Beguelin Road, Celista. 250-955-8600 www.celistawine.com

Last week I got to drive the new 2014 MERCEDES-BENZ C300. Sleek, powerful and luxurious, a real joy to drive! I was amazed at the fuel-saving ECO start/stop system - when you stop at a stop sign or red light it stops the engine, and restarts it when you’re ready to go again! Amazing, and good for the environment! I also loved the cruise control, which is adjustable in 1km or 10km increments. It also had sport mode & a fob-operated trunk. What a great car!

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

Santa Fe XL fills a big hole for Hyundai Let Us Show You Why It Pays To Shop Here! 2005 PONTIAC GRAND AM

By Jim Robinson METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

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 seven. For decades, the queen of the people haulers was the minivan — and it still is. But, the rise of the sport utility vehicles over 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 fit the bill. With the advent of direct injection engines, lighter but more rigid chassis and, above all, ingenious new peoplepackaging methods, you can now 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 horse power and 252 pound-feet of torque. The XL is available in front- or allwheel-drive and both use a six-speed automatic transmission with Hyundai’s Shiftronic manual sequential-shift mode. Fuel rating for the FWD version is 11.6/7.8/9.9 L/100 km city/highway/combined and 11.7/8.0/10.0 L/100 km for the AWD. The Santa Fe XL increases second-row legroom by 50 millimetres and cargo capacity by 156 litres, relative to its five-passenger sibling with a nice touch being standard rear-passenger HVAC controls and vents. The standard 50/50 split-folding third row 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 row captain’s chairs. The interior is festooned with beverage holders of all shapes. Thoughtfully, each one has a ridged bottom so drinks and water bottles don’t clatter around when in motion. 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. Tested here is the Santa Fe Limited AWD fitted with a super fast navigation system, a 550-watt Infinity Logic 7 audio system with 12 speakers, including an eight-inch subwoofer, and external amplifier.

Santa Fe XL raises the bar on high-tech safety 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 rearview 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 the voice recognition software also now understands street addresses and cities all in one sentence. Where it really excels is on highways where route screens display speed limits and details 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 vehicle-stability management (VSM) system that incorporates a rolloverprotection system. What it does is control the electronic-stability control and the motor-driven power steering 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-meters of counter-steering effort to help keep it on the road. A traction-control system is also included. In keeping with the ways the Koreans are dialing in electronics into their cars and trucks is Hyundai’s all-new driver-selectable steering mode 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 all-round 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 as well 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 fullsize 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 peoplemover solution.

The interior of the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe XL is comprehensive. Note the centre stack with Hyundai’s third generation infotainment/navigation system, which is much more intuitive.

The funding will help the society provide seven hours of Michif instruction per day through cultural activities. The society will also build on its previous Michif Language and Jigging Program and provide 24 three-hour language classes. The classes will each include a 30-minute traditional jigging segment that will expose participants to the language, as well as traditional music and songs. From Nov. 9 to Nov. 17, the society

FLORENCE ARCHIBALD November 6, 1921 ~ August 28, 2013 Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother passed away peacefully on August 28, 2013. She is survived by her son Paul (Nancy) Backman, and daughter Linda (Edwin) Schupsky, step-daughter Carol (Jim) Wiggins and step-son Dale (Florence) Archibald. Florence also leaves eight grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren. She was predeceased by her first husband, Ymir Backman (1952), and second husband, Eugene Archibald (2001). She is also predeceased by one sister and three brothers.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Darcy Allan Lewis. Darcy will be missed by his family, friends, co-workers and all who met him. Darcy was born in Thompson, Manitoba. He is survived by his cherished loved ones: Eva Szabo, Tanya Szabo (Sean, Brooklyn), his mother Diane DiGeso (Vincent), stepfather Francois Lambert, sister Tracy Czeczei [(Jerry), Jessie, Brayden, Taylar] and brother Terry Lewis (Samantha) and many more, too numerous to mention. Darcy was a gentle, caring soul, with a heart of gold, who would do anything for friends and always put his family first. He touched many lives and will live on in our hearts and memories in the years to come. A service will be held in honour of Darcy on September 7, 2013, at 3:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on 2165 Parkcrest Avenue. There will be a celebration of life to follow at 1945 Sunnycrest, Kamloops, BC. Please bring your own chair.

Florence was born and raised in Edmonton, AB. She graduated with honors from the Royal Alexander nursing program in Edmonton in 1944. She moved to Kamloops in 1945 to take up a nursing position. She was an exceptional nurse and later gained great respect from students and faculty alike as an instructor at Royal Inland Hospital with the school of nursing. It was in Kamloops where she met and married her first husband Ymir in 1946. He tragically died in 1952 at the Tranquille TB sanatorium, leaving Florence to raise two small children on her own. In 1971 she married second husband Gene Archibald. They spent many years together travelling extensively and making many friends in their church work. Special thanks to the Overlander Evergreen staff for their care and friendship during the three years Mom resided there.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the Àelds of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling Áight. I am the star-shine of the night. I am in the Áowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 7th at 1:00 pm, in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, 311 Columbia Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2T1, would be greatly appreciated.
