City’s new top cop arrives By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Public tours of the Tranquille tunnels began on Friday, Sept. 7. They run hourly on weekends from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is $18.50 for those 12 and older, $15.50 for children and seniors 65 and older and $48.50 for a family of four. Tickets are available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca. The tour is not handicap-accessible. General manager Tim McLeod said the project is a work in progress and will grow, not only as they reveal more of the tunnels, but through a partnership with the B.C. Wildlife Park, which is providing its expertise in special effects.There are also some plans to up the spooky quotient closer to Halloween. Andrea Klassen/KTW

TUNNELLING AT TRANQUILLE By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

M

INNIE KNEW TRANQUILLE WELL. As a young nurse, barely 19, she had transferred to the sanatorium from a similar position in New Westminster. She met her husband there, tended patients there and — well, the end of her story at the former institution should remain in the mist of time. But, the people who are now managing the development on Kamloops Lake,

The underground passageways at the old sanatorium are now open to the public — if you dare to venture down there . . . past Kamloops Airport, could think of no one better than Minnie to conduct tours of some of the tunnels under the buildings. Minnie greeted the first group to head down into the darkness, which, in years past, had been busy with laundry staff collecting the dirty and returning the clean to the rooms, and with cafeteria staff moving food to the

many buildings housing patients. Minnie stopped along the way to point out the many enlarged photographs of the tunnels as they were when Tim McLeod, manager at the property, and others first made their way into them. Elevator shafts littered with bedding, furniture and other debris. Vandalism everywhere, some of it graf-

fiti, some of it holes in the walls where invaders tried to salvage copper. Minnie talked of her life there as she led the group along — how, at one time, there were upwards of 500 employees with a payroll in the millions, all providing care to patients. She talked of the history of the site, opening in November

1907 to treat people with tuberculosis. As one of the nurses, it was her job to implement the treatment prescribed by Dr. Charles Fagan, one based on exposure to cold air, nutritious food and no exercise. Minnie spoke with some pride that the place where she worked was once featured in a television show, episode five in the second season of Fear, in which, she whispered ominously, it was declared the institution had “the spookiest building in B.C.” X See GET READY A2

The Tournament Capital’s new top cop says he won’t dwell on the well-documented issues that have plagued the Kamloops detachment in recent years. RCMP Supt. Brad Mueller began his term as Kamloops’ detachment commander on Monday, Sept. 9. “For me, I think it’s important that we know the past and understand the past as we move forward,” said Mueller, who spent a half-hour of his first day on the job taking questions from reporters. “I’m new in the chair here and I don’t plan on really moving backwards. “That said, if there’s some issues we need to look at, we will.” The Kamloops RCMP detachment has received its share of unwanted limelight going back to 2010, with incidents including a controversial police-involved shooting, the so-called cellblock sex scandal and a number of cases of local officers being charged criminally with offences including assault and impaired driving.

The tunnel tour at Tranquille is expected to become a popular option in Kamloops. During a media preview, Minnie (below, based on an employee at Tranquille in the last century) conducted the underground tour. Andrea Klassen photos/KTW

Get ready to step into the darkness of history X From A1

Minnie stopped at the meat-cutting room, now filled with stories about Tranquille and reproductions of old photos — moments in time captured to share with those who dare enter the darkness to shed some light on the past. She told the group of the last patient to leave the facility when it was finally shut down by the provincial government, which had changed its focus from TB to mental-health — a 14-year-old girl. She didn’t know why the girl had been a patient, but noted society had changed and institutionalizing the mentally ill was no longer acceptable. McLeod took over the tour for a bit as Minnie seemed to be upset. He showed the group tuggers (used to ferry laundry through the tunnels) recovered when they took snow shovels down to clean the floors to prepare the tunnel — just one of miles and miles of tunnels on the property. On Saturday, Aug. 31, some staffers managed to get the tuggers running.

And we had some races down here,� McLeod said, “bouncing off the walls.� Ironically, someone who found the site’s Facebook page contacted McLeod and told him of how she used to drive the tuggers, delivering laundry back and forth — and of how that job and all the others in the laundry and kitchen had once been restricted to men. It was only through women like her and the support of their union that the “glass ceiling was broken here,� he said. There’s a corner in the tunnel where new history will be recorded. Anyone with any connection to Tranquille is invited to record that linkage for future tour participants to see. As the tour came to an end, Minnie continued her story. Married with a young child, she no longer worked at Tranquille, but was forced to return one day. It had something to do with a park, her little son and her forgetfulness. And, it is part of the history that lives on below ground in the tunnels and above ground in the ramshackle remains of Tranquille.

SEASON OF THE STING This summer has been one full of warmth and wasps — oh, so many wasps. As a result, wasp traps like these the city has hung in Riverside Park have been difficult to find in stores. With a heat wave in place for the rest of the week — the mercury will remain above 30 C through the weekend — expect the nasty flying weapons to be out in full force. Dave Eagles/KTW

Ajax open houses continue at TRU through Thursday By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

There won’t be any hard data on vibrations, noise or other effects of the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine on Kamloops, but proponents are hoping four days of open houses can still answer some community questions. “We don’t have results available, so we want people to keep that in mind,” said company spokeswoman Robin Bartlett. “But, they will hopefully have a better understanding of the components that go into the testing we’re doing.” Each of the open houses,

which began on Monday, Sept. 9, and run through Thursday, Sept. 12, will feature identical presentations from the experts conducting studies for the mine’s environmental assessment. Bartlett said the experts will go into detail about what is required to model the mine’s effects on air. water, noise and vibrations. Experts will also discuss Ajax’s human health and ecological risk assessment and the impacts of blasting, including ground vibrations and noise energy. “This is a pretty small number of models compared to what we’re doing overall, but these are the ones where people are most

consistently the most concerned in the community right now,” Bartlett said. When KGHM first said last spring it was planning another round of open houses, the company was still planning to submit an application for an environmental-assessment certificate in late September. But, last month the company scrapped that plan, saying it had found new ore bodies that required further study and could change the setup of the mine. Ajax’s application is now expected some time in 2014. Bartlett said the company still thinks it’s important to give residents some information in the meantime.

“We can’t give results, but they might have a better understanding of why maybe it takes as long as it does for us to get through the process, all the different steps we need to take and what we’re actually looking for,” she said. All four sessions will take place in the Grand Hall at Thompson Rivers University. Afternoon presentations will today ( Tuesday, Sept. 10) and Thursday, Sept. 12, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. An evening session will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Pre-registration for the events is encouraged, Bartlett said, but not mandatory. To do so, call

250-374-5446 or email info@ ajaxmine.ca. KGHM’s representatives won’t be the only people talking Ajax on TRU campus during the sessions. The Kamloops Area Preservation Association is planning a rally outside the Campus Activity Centre on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 12:30 p.m. A Facebook page for the demonstration describes it as a “peaceful protest to bring awareness to the KGHM and our City Council that this mine is not in the best interest of our city.” Bartlett said the company is aware of KAPA’s plans. “That’s their choice to do that. They have that right,” she said.

Police raid finds . . . pellet guns POLICE BEAT Cpl. Cheryl Bush said she’s not sure if or when charge recommendations will be forwarded to the Crown as the investigation is ongoing. Seized from the apartment were two pellet guns — one handgun-style and one long-barrel, according to Bush — some stolen electronics and “a small quantity of cocaine and marijuana.” Bush described the apartment as “a crack shack” and said police had previously identified it as “a problem residence with high drug activity.” The name of the woman arrested has not been made public.

Police probe mystery of barbecued Ram Kamloops Mounties are hoping tips from the public will help them figure out the story behind a pickup truck found burned to a crisp in

Batchelor Heights early on Monday, Sept. 9. Just before 3 a.m., emergency crews were called to a location on North River Drive after someone spotted a vehicle on fire. Firefighters arrived to find the truck — a 2012 Dodge Ram — fully engulfed in flames. “Investigators are deeming the fire as suspicious based on some evidence gathered,” Bush said, adding there’s no indication the vehicle was stolen. She said the owner has been made aware of the incident. Beyond that, Mounties are staying tight-lipped. Anyone with information can call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Don’t fall for this latest letter scam Telus is warning

Canadians about a surge in a common international lottery scam being sent via letter mail to residents of B.C., Alberta and Manitoba, falsely claiming an association with Telus and Koodo. Known as an “advance-fee scheme,” the scam involves letters that appear to be originating from England stating the recipient has won a $51,950 cash prize, and asking the recipient to deposit a money order to cover taxes and processing fees at their bank to claim the prize. The letter includes a cheque to cover the recipient’s costs; however, that cheque is forged and will bounce, while any money deposited will be lost. The letters claim to be from an organization titled The National Lottery (in conjunction with Koodo Mobile and Telus Corporation). The letters state the recipient is a

lucky winner in the World International Consumers and telephone users sweepstakes held in the United Kingdom on July 28. These letters are fraudulent and they are in no way related to Telus or other companies with which the scam artists claim to be associated. Telus recommends customers simply throw the letters in the recycling bin. The RCMP antifraud department and Canada Post are aware of this scam and Canada Post is working to prevent the letters from entering the Canadian mail system.

New chief oversaw 35 Manitoba detachmemts X From A1

Mueller acknowledged the national police force has made some missteps, but said he’s encouraged by what he has seen moving forward. “I think, as an organization, we’ve made some mistakes,” he said. “But, we’ve taken some big steps in the last little while. I look forward to the future.” Initially, Mueller said, he wants to take his time and get to know the Kamloops detachment before implementing any changes in how it operates. “It takes six months to a year to really get a good feel for things,” he said. “That’s not to say if issues come up we won’t deal with them.

“But, I don’t think that, initially, I can see myself bringing anything new or making any drastic changes. “As I’ve said previously, the priorities that are in place [at the Kamloops detachment] are in line with my priorities.” Mueller, 47, comes to Kamloops from Manitoba, where he served most recently as the assistant district officer of that province’s west division — a role that saw him overseeing the operations of 35 rural detachments. The former Brandon Wheat King — he played 25 games in the 1984-1985 WHL season for the Wheaties, tallying one goal, four assists and 31 penalty minutes — said he likes

What do you get when a team of heavily armed police officers swarm a so-called “crack shack” on a downtown street? In the case of the Kamloops RCMP’s emergency-response team raid of an apartment unit on Seymour Street under the cover of darkness over the weekend, you get two BB guns and a small amount of drugs. Kamloops Mounties raided the apartment, at 352 Seymour St., at 8:20 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6, acting on a tip that the residence was home to a cache of firearms. Seven people — four men and three women — were found inside and questioned. All but one of them — a 48-year-old woman who is known to police — were released a short time later. The woman who was taken into custody has since been released without charge. Kamloops RCMP

LONG TRIP FOR SHORT-TRACKERS During what has now become their annual visit to Kamloops, members of the Chinese national short-track speed-skating team worked out at the Hillside Stadium between on-ice sessions at the McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre.

Women in Mining opens Kamloops chapter By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

When the directors of a new Women in Mining group were thinking of activity ideas, educational presentations in the traditional “lunch and learn” seemed like an obvious choice. There’s just one problem, though it’s the kind chairwoman Nicole Trudell is happy to have. “Given the difference in travel times between New Gold and Highland Valley and even Gibraltar — because we’ve had women from Williams Lake and Kelowna and Vernon as well enquire — we thought we’d do an evening learning session instead,” Trudell said. Officially up and running for about a month, Women in Mining’s Kamloops chapter is the fourth of its kind in B.C. Trudell said the group will offer a combination of networking and socializing events and continuing education opportunities. Members will also encourage younger women to get involved in the industry and

in community causes. “It’s a good opportunity for a bunch of women to get together,” said Trudell, who is part of the community-relations team at KGHM Ajax. “A lot of women in this industry, say geologists for example, don’t often work very close to communities. “A lot of them get sent up north or to remote areas. So, for them when they’re travelling a lot, it’s nice to be able to come home and have some women to connect with.” Trudell said studies show women hold less than 20 per cent of mining jobs in B.C. as of 2011. Though the number is growing, there are some challenges women have in the field that friends and family members in another industry may not relate to so easily. “I know of a mom who’s trying to support a family and she lives here in Kamloops, but she works in the Northwest Territories,” Trudell said. “So, she’s gone for two weeks at a time, two weeks away from her kids and family.” Meeting other women in the industry

can also point members in new directions, showing them new career opportunities. The organization will hold its first social event this fall, likely in late October. After-work guest speaker sessions will come in 2014. Trudell also wants to see the group follow Women in Mining

Vancouver’s lead and give back to the community. The Lower Mainland chapter fields a team for the CIBC Run for the Cure each year. For more information on Women in Mining, contact Trudell at wimkamloops@ gmail.com.

Gemstone Care Centre adds 125 residential-care beds to Kamloops The wait list for residential-care beds in Kamloops is basically depleted. Deborah Smith, director of residential services for the Interior Health Authority, said the opening of Brocklehurst Gemstone Care Centre added 125 beds to the mix available — and that was essentially how many beds represented the wait list. Smith was one of many IHA staffers and other dignitaries who joined a large group of residents and staff at the centre for its official opening on Monday, Sept. 9. Looking out over a backdrop of hills, the South Thompson River and, much closer, tomatoes growing in a large container in the courtyard, Health Minister Terry Lake praised the facility as a good investment of taxpayer money. Lake said $7.3 million was allocated for the centre and noted the opening fulfills the government’s commitment to create 527 new residentialcare beds in the Interior, a project that will cost $30 million. Lake praised Buron Healthcare, which built and runs the facility, as being a company that is “not typical in that it involved the community in all aspects of the design and naming.” Buron asked for name suggestions from the public, with a committee choosing the name. At least one person in attendance quietly expressed dismay the property had not been named for the Desmond family, which donated the land to the IHA for the facility. Mayor Peter Milobar told the group it is “unfortunate there is no orchard here now,” but adding the new use of the land is “wonderful.”

Royal Inland Hospital upgrades will mean no parking at Ponderosa for about eight weeks The parking lot for visitors and staff at Ponderosa Lodge on Columbia Street will be closed for about eight weeks as preliminary work begins at nearby Royal Inland Hospital for the clinical-services building. Alternate arrangements have been made and information is available at the lodge. The construction also requires the east staircase that connects the two facilities to be closed. It will eventually be removed as part of the work and relocation of utilities. The sidewalk in front of the lodge between Third and Fourth avenues will also be closed, with pedestrians rerouted to the main staircase and walkway at the intersection of Columbia Street and Third Avenue.

STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A man facing two murder charges following an apparent gang-related double-slaying more than three years ago will stand trial in November. Jury selection for Roy Frederick Fraser’s trial is scheduled to take place on Nov. 4, followed by a month-long trial beginning on Nov. 12. Fraser, 56, is accused of killing Kenneth Yaretz and Damien Marks in the spring of 2009. Yaretz, 24, and Marks, 31, went missing in mid-April of that year. Their bodies were discovered in a shallow grave on Fraser’s Knouff Lake property a month later. Fraser was initially arrested in May 2009 on suspicion of possession of stolen property, while Kamloops RCMP executed the search warrant at his property which eventually led to the discovery of the bodies. He was released without charge five days later, promptly re-arrested and then released again. It wasn’t until October 2010 — 17 months after the bodies were discovered — that Kamloops Mounties held a press conference to announce two murder charges against Fraser, and the issuance of a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest. He turned himself in to police in Burnaby 12 hours later. Fraser was in custody until January 2012 when, following a

week-long preliminary hearing, he was released on $100,000 bail. Not much can be reported about the case other than what police revealed at the press conference announcing charges against Fraser, in addition to background KTW reported in the weeks following the discoveries of Yaretz’s and Marks’ bodies in Knouff Lake. When Mounties revealed they had laid charges against Fraser, they described their investigation as “painstaking” and said DNA played a large part in securing charges. Yaretz and Marks were believed to have been close friends and roommates. While Marks had no criminal history, Yaretz was a convicted drug dealer with ties to the Independent Soldiers street gang and its one-time Kamloops leader Jayme Russell. Court documents filed at the Kamloops Law Courts in 2008 stated Yaretz was in a vehicle with Russell that summer when it was pulled over by police. Fraser also has a criminal record, having received a two-year federal prison sentence after being convicted in 1999 on a number of drug charges in Saskatchewan. In that instance, police in Saskatoon found Fraser with $120,000 worth of marijuana and hashish he was trying to sell. After serving just four months of that sentence, Fraser was released on parole and moved to the Kamloops area.

UBCM seeks to cure a community cash crunch

L

OCAL POLITICIANS from across B.C. are in Vancouver from Sept. 16 to Sept. 20 to take part in the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. There will be trivia reported as news, such as the cost of hotels. Suggestions to license mobility scooters or lower speed limits to 40 km/h, dreamed up in Vancouver Island retirement locales, will be rejected by delegates from the rest of the province. Serious discussion will revolve around a report by a UBCM executive committee to reshape the financial relationship between the province and local governments. If this proposal gets the support it deserves, Premier Christy Clark’s government will be asked to undo a couple of decades of political meddling in that relationship. One problem for local governments is that they depend on property tax — a stable source of revenue, but one that has no relationship to the property owner’s ability to pay. It tends to load costs onto lowerincome groups, such as seniors and renters. Economic growth results mainly in increased corporate and personal income-tax revenues as well as sales taxes, which aren’t shared with local governments. One key proposal is to return to a system of revenue-sharing grants introduced by the Social Credit government in the 1980s. They were funded by one point each from personal and corporate

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In VICTORIA income tax and six per cent of sales-, fuel- and resource-tax revenues, thus increasing in years when provincial revenues were strong. The UBCM proposal is to put a share of provincial revenues into an infrastructure bank, to be distributed by the organization on a more stable basis. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard, one of the authors of the report, uses a basketball analogy to describe the current system of federal-provincial grants for road and bridge projects. It’s a “jump ball,” where communities have to apply to a fund when it’s offered and then see who gets it. Even if a community wins the jump ball, they may find themselves with costs inflated by a hot construction market and an arbitrary deadline to get the job done. Then there are new regulations imposed by senior governments. The most dramatic example these days is a 2020 federal deadline for Greater Victoria to construct landbased sewage treatment. Even with federal and provincial cost-sharing, this project is going to land heavily on property-tax bills, including those of pensioners and

poor renters who will have it passed on to them. Leonard points to another arbitrary system — provincial facilities that pay grants in lieu of property taxes. Saanich is home to the University of Victoria, a community of 25,000 people that needs water and sewer service, as well as police and fire protection. Saanich gets an annual grant in lieu of property taxes of $120,000 for UVic, enough to cover wages and benefits for one cop and maybe some gas money. Cariboo Regional District chairman Al Richmond, co-chair of the UBCM committee, is concerned about new water and flood-protection legislation the province is preparing to impose. His district and others like it have thousands of kilometres of riverfront, with relatively few property owners. Interior communities also want BC Hydro to pay something for power lines, as is now being done with some aboriginal territories. Local politicians will be expecting a sympathetic ear from the new version of the B.C. Liberal government. Former Quesnel councillor Coralee Oakes is the new community, sport and cultural development minister, with direct responsibility for local government issues. And one of the original members of this UBCM committee was former Langley City mayor Peter Fassbender, who is now minister of education. tfletcher@blackpress.ca Twitter:@tomfletcherbc

The news about frosh chants at the University of B.C. and St. Mary’s University in Halifax has shone the light of publicity on some of the less-desirable aspects of campus life at many of Canada’s post-secondary institutions, including some of the most prestigious. The chants that have received attention portray young women as sex objects and glorify violence against women. They are far more than the “school spirit” chants student leaders say they are because they put into words what some students actually think about life on campus. While the respective student societies say they are disciplining the leaders of the specific organizations involved, this is not enough. University leaders and governments may have to become involved. Student societies on most campuses are notorious for protecting insiders — those deeply involved in student politics. It’s a lucrative profession, as students are forced to pay fees to student societies, whose officers are elected by a tiny percentage of students. They do all they can to entrench themselves in power and enrich themselves. Getting rid of them when they do something egregious is almost impossible. University administrations have to start getting much tougher with student organizations and demand far more accountability. This applies in the area of finances, elections, conflict of interest and, as highlighted in this case, initiation procedures. Provincial governments also have a role to play in this — something from which they have shied away. These universities are under the control of provincial legislatures and most of their operating funds come from taxpayers. It is appalling that institutions supposed to train young people to take their place as responsible adults allow such behaviour to take place. The fact these frosh chants are supposed to be kept under wraps, and that participants are forced to take part in them, makes matters even worse. Universities are supposed to be a place for free expression, not forced behaviour. Provincial Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk, a former Langley RCMP inspector, and other provincial governments need to set strict guidelines for student societies and immediately suspend those societies that do not comply with basic rules of responsible behaviour.

KTW reader Ken Ball says taking a tour of the proposed site of the Ajax mine is crucial to making a decision on whether one supports the project. KTW file photo

Go and see the proposed KGHM Ajax site for yourself Editor: On Aug. 8, I went on a tour of the proposed Ajax mine site south of Aberdeen and was very impressed with the presentation. The tour director was very well-versed and informative. My general conclusion after taking the tour? If more people would do likewise, they would understand the

scope of the project. Reading mostly negative comments from people sitting at a computer is certainly unfair to the company in the process of developing such a project. We all need to get off our rears and go see the site. Ken Ball Kamloops

Editor: Re: Dale Bass’s column Aug. 29 (‘Message of tolerance trumped by Miley and musical misogyny’): Martin Luther King Jr. would dislike “tolerance trumped by misogyny.” I sympathize, but wouldn’t he say it’s not about popularity or games, but what we do when we encounter fear and hatred? (To laugh at racist jokes — or not.) I think he’d say the current gossip about senators is shameful distraction. They are old friends facing lawful punishment for their stumbles, but they are ridiculed, too. It’s inappropriate as there are more important issues. Perhaps King would shake his head at simplistic restraint ideologies aimed at layoffs of letter carriers and the conjecture that the Internet could replace Canada Post, despite the web’s manipulations, dangerous addictive amusements, gossip, bullying, scams and crime. He might ask whether Canadians are really so cool, so seemingly unconcerned about danger. Canadians often insist there is also (always) a “bright side” (anyway). There is no “bright side” to our sales of assault weapons, government stonewalling, natives living in contaminated swamps, compromising CBC journalism or the Prime Minister’s Office’s list of “enemy” Canadians. King told us, “I have a dream!” Some adults seem unsure about that, but our kids believe in truth, decency, fairness, law, democracy and dreams. I think King would smile and say, “Thanks, Dale Bass!” Daryl Clayton Kamloops

Remember those who made Kamloops Airport a reality Editor: Open letter to Kamloops Airport Ltd., Kamloops Airport Authority Society, City of Kamloops, Kamloops Museum & Archives, educators and parents: Please either remove or post a disclaimer as to the accuracy of the History of Canadian Airports by T.M. McGrath, with respect to Kamloops Airport on Fulton Field (YKA). There is too much

om

misinformation regarding early days of our airport. I was a contributor to the works of McGrath. My 1989 contribution was from material I was able to find during limited spare time over four months. At no time did McGrath contact me. History in McGrath’s writing does not reflect the many hours leaders of the City of Kamloops spent trying to establish an airport. These city leaders

had to contend with a stock-market crash and the Great Depression before recovering enough to engage in the development of an airport in 1938. As far as children researching the airport facility for heritage projects, they should use Kamloops’ city council minutes and archived copies of the Kamloops Sentinel and Kamloops Daily Sentinel for early information.

Children should follow the names of city council members from 1927 — the names of Charles Edward Scanlan, Fred W. Scott and John Calbern Stainton. These three men should be recognized for their contribution to our airport facility and aviation in B.C. In later years, the services of George Greer and Ian Clark and others must be recognized. The Sept. 13, 1938,

edition of the Sentinel reported, “Kamloops has an airport.” The property of the facility was covered by bylaw No. 830. The Dec. 15, 1938 edition of the Sentinel reported, “Airport licence approved.” The Kamloops Municipal Airport was officially opened on Aug. 5, 1939, with an air show.

Police busy in ďŹ rst week of school

presence in the school-zone areas, each identified by yellow traffic signs noting lower speeds from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days classes are in session. As well, officers have been parking their vehicles in a conspicuous spot when they are taking a break, Bush said, all part of reminding drivers of the lower school-zone speed. Anyone caught driver faster than 30 km/h but less than 50 km/h faces a $196 fine. Those going faster — but not hitting 70 km/h — can be fined $253. And for those driving faster than 70 km/h, it’s classified as excessive, Bush said, and can lead to the car being impounded. Police were also inside schools during the first week of school, talking with students about the need to be careful when they are walking near roadways.

Since the first bell rang on Tuesday, Sept. 3, to the end of the day on Wednesday, Sept. 4, police issued more than 30 tickets for myriad infractions: Driving above the posted 30 km/h speed limit, seatbelt violations, driving without insurance and, in one case, driving while prohibited. “Drivers need to be reminded of these school zones,� Kamloops RCMP Cpl.

Dishcrawl set to hit downtown By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s one part dinner, one part pub crawl and one part foodie mystery. Over the course of a Wednesday evening, about 40 diners will hit four restaurants for a three-hour taste of downtown Kamloops. Along the way, they will taste 10 dishes encompassing six different cuisines, chat with chefs and owners and, local organizer Anita Lyapina hopes, make a few new friends along the way. “We want to gather people from the same

community and we want them to socialize together offline,” said Lyapina, who represents the Californiabased Dishcrawl in the Tournament Capital. “There are so many interesting people here in Kamloops and so many interesting stories. “And it’s going to be not only the community, but the owners of these restaurants engaging with them,” she said. “So everyone will be involved and they all have the same interest that is food.” Dishcrawl runs a variety of food-based events, focusing on beer,

tacos, food trucks and other specialities, but the restaurant crawl is its signature. The company has run similar events across North America, including Nanaimo and Vancouver. In Kamloops, the crawl will take place downtown, with all restaurants within a 10 minute walk of each other. “I think it’s the most charming area in Kamloops to feature,” Lyapina said. “It has lots of different places and we want to support local businesses. We don’t work with chains.”

After blasting through estimates in 2012, Kamloops’ building-permit numbers are looking more conservative in 2013. Through the first six months of the year, the city processed just under $80 million in permits, according to a mid-year update from development and engineering services. By that time in 2012, the city had given out $101 million in permits.

While Lyapina will confirm all the restaurants are locally owned and highly ranked on UrbanSpoon, Yelp and other social media sites, there’s little else she or the company is giving away about where Dishcrawlers will dine on their night out. Diners won’t find out where they’re headed until 48 hours before the event, when they will learn where they need to meet up. Lyapina said diners can expect some variety in their night. “We try not to do, for example, only Italian restaurants or only

While residential construction is slightly up for the year, building construction values for commercial, industrial and institutional project are less than half what they were a year ago. However, the city is still on track to meet its permit projection of $106 million for the year, the report notes, thanks to high-value expansions planned for Moly-Cop and the Royal Inland Hospital.

French restaurants,” she said. “We want the community to taste a many cuisines as possible.” Besides giving participants a chance to try some new eats, Lyapina said the mystery aspect of the crawl means diners can visit restaurants they may have eaten at dozens of times — but with new eyes.

Preschool Helping Children Develop in Harmony with Life & Daycare Centre

Signing up for school Each school district has its own requirements to begin kindergarten, so parents should familiarize themselves with their school district as soon as possible. One of the primary requirements is age. Children generally have to meet a certain age requirement (usually age 5), meaning their birthdays have to take place prior to or by a cut-off date. Public schools will also require proof of residence. They often require utility bills with the student's address on them. Private schools typically have more lenient residence requirements. Most entering students also will need to have received all the necessary vaccinations. If the student has not received all immunizations, he or she will need to do so before enrolling.

Preparing Your Child forr Kindergarten Kinde Ki derg garten t Kindergarten used to be a time when kids grabbed a nap in between fingerpainting and playing outside, but today's coursework is much more rigorous and kindergarteners are now introduced to concepts that were once taught in later years of elementary school. Preparing children who have never attended school for their first day could take a little time prior to the start of school.

additional rules and limits. Bed time and wake times should be the same each day as well. Children who are unaccustomed to having structure may find the rigors of the classroom scary. Parents should inquire about touring the school to help calm kids' nerves. This way children will see exactly what environment they will be working in each day.

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

Honing skills Children will partake in a variety of activities during kindergarten. They'll begin learning to write and perform other activities that require fine motor skills. Parents can introduce their children to pencils, crayons, markers, and safety scissors so they can learn the proper grip and how to maneuver these tools. It's also never too early to read with children. Studies indicate that children who frequently read with their parents or others tend to have greater success in school. The National Education Association says that children who were read to frequently are more likely to: * count to 20, or higher than those who were not

Some children are anxious to be "big kids" and begin school. Others may be nervous about what's in store. The best way to prepare children is to think about enrolling them in some sort of social program. Preschool is the avenue many parents choose, but simply spending time together with other kids in a structured social setting is enough for many kids to get acclimated.

The Educational Testing Services reports that students who do more reading at home are better readers and have higher math scores. Kindergarten is a child's initial foray into the world of academia. Much has changed in the kindergarten curriculum, and parents can expect their kids to be learning much more in kindergarten than they once did.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Telus School safety tips from BC Transit helps kids in need September is the busiest month of the year for BC Transit as thousands of children go back to school. For that reason, BC Transit is

Just in time for the new school year, 360 local students will receive a backpack full of school supplies to help them start the school year off right, courtesy of Telus Community Ambassadors throughout Kamloops. Each year, Telus Community Ambassadors fill backpacks with essential school supplies for each grade — pencils, notebooks, loose-leaf sheets, pencil cases, rulers and much more. The Kits for Kids program is part of the annual Telus Day of Giving — a special day in May when Telus team members and retirees across Canada volunteer thousands of hours of community service to help build healthy, sustainable communities. “Going back to school with all the basics you need is essential for success, but they can be expensive for a family working hard to make ends meet,” said Pat Bauer, president of the Kamloops Telus Community Ambassadors. “For some, it is a choice between food on the table or pens and paper for school. “We want to make sure no family has to make that choice and that all students have the tools they need to succeed at school. “All children deserve an opportunity to succeed, learn and grow.” Since 2006, Telus Community Ambassadors have donated more than 70,000 Kits for Kids that school districts distribute to help young people start the school year with the supplies they need to flourish.

reminding its 3,000-plus transit operators — and all drivers — across the province to be extra cautious as the new school year begins.

Motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of injury and death among children. Children are often distracted, especially at the start of the school year. They are quick, small and often less visible than adults. “Look for clues that children

might be on or near roads,” said John Palmer, BC Transit’s director of safety and the environment. “If a driver spots groups of children together, busy playground areas, bicycles or toys on the road ahead, these are all indicators that children may be at risk.”

BACK TO SCHOOL

Back-to-school safety tips With the summer break all but a fond memory at this point, households across the country are adjusting once again to the drastic changes in schedule and routine brought about by back-to-school time. Due to busy work schedules, most parents are still working when their children come home from school. This makes it especially important to have a proper security plan in place for your children. Here are some tips that you can use to help keep your child safe dur-

ing the back to school season. • Organize group walks where your children and their friends walk home together. • Ensure they never go off anywhere by themselves and keep an eye out for each other. • Inform them that strangers who take an unusual interest in them should be avoided and let a trusted adult know about the incident. • Put into place a neighborhood watch to help keep an

eye out for your children and for any suspicious activity. If your kids come home to find an open door, shattered window or a torn screen, instruct your kids to walk away from the house to a neighbour’s and contact you immediately. Once safely in the home, remind them to never let anyone into the house, to keep all doors locked and set the alarm system if you have one.

Diving club scores well with new head coach

On track to realize Olympic dream

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Four years ago, retiring from speed skating was a very real possibility for Kamloops product Jessica Hewitt. Instead of calling it a career, the former Kamloops Long Blade re-dedicated her life to the sport. Now, she’s on the verge of competing for Canada at the Olympics. fotosports.ca

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

J

ESSICA HEWITT WAS PREPARING DINNER IN MONTREAL WHEN KTW CAUGHT UP WITH HER. Beef, with bacon, salad and sweet potatoes on a quiet Thursday evening. The lightning-fast speed skater from Kamloops was in a chipper mood. Turn back the clock four years to Olympic trials in the summer of 2009. Hewitt didn’t qualify — she could barely stomach the failure. Her mood then was anything but chipper. “Looking back, I still don’t know what happened,” said Hewitt, who grew up skating with the Kamloops Long Blades. “I was really upset. Maybe I wasn’t expect-

ed to make it, but I really believed that I could. It was really hard.” So hard, in fact, that, at 22, she seriously considered hanging up her skates for good. “I thought either I stop skating now or I move to Montreal, which is where most of the national team trains.” Hewitt, who had previously trained in Calgary, opted not to retire and moved to La Belle Province in the summer of 2010. The decision paid off. She was nominated for the Canadian short track speed skating squad heading to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, after performing well at national-team trials last month in Montreal. “It just kind of shows that, if you stick in there and really believe in yourself, you can accomplish your

goals,” Hewitt said. “I remember my first Olympic trials in Vancouver. There’s nothing like Olympic trials. It’s so long. It’s 10 days long. I don’t know about being overwhelmed, but I wasn’t ready. “I didn’t seize it enough. I wasn’t aggressive enough. I wanted it, but maybe I wanted it too much.” Hewitt, with four more years of international competition under her belt, rolled into Olympic trials in August with a boatload of confidence. She finished as the second-ranked Canadian woman in the 500-metre distance — the event in which she is expected to compete at the Games. Hewitt and the other nine skaters nominated will now race in four remaining International Skating Union World Cup events this season, two of which are

Olympic qualifiers. If Canada can earn three berths at the Olympics in the 500metre distance, Hewitt said she is guaranteed to have one of them. Those spots can be secured if three Canadian skaters finish in the top 32 at the two Olympic-qualifier World Cup events, scheduled to be held in Russia and Italy later this winter. Even if Canada were to secure only two spots, Hewitt will likely get the nod if she can hold on to her position as the No. 2-ranked skater on the team in that distance. “I’m confident we’ll get all the spots we need,” Hewitt said. “We have a strong team.” Hewitt might also be chosen to skate at the Olympics in other distances or on the relay team. Those decisions are up to the Canadian women’s coach,

Frédéric Blackburn, and will be based on her performance at the events leading up to the Games. River City product Dylan Armstrong, along with a few other Olympians who train in Kamloops, received a hero’s sendoff before the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. If Hewitt does book a spot at the Games and returns to the Tournament Capital before heading to Sochi, she should expect similar treatment. “Since I was a little kid, I’ve wanted to go to the Olympics,” said Hewitt, who has not been home since March 2012. “It’s always been a goal of mine. When I wished for something — wished on a falling star — that’s what I did. “It’s a dream come true.”

Eryn Bulmer-Barrett made a career out of avoiding big splashes, but the two-time Olympian made waves when she landed with Riptech Diving Club. “Finally the pull of diving brought me back,” said BulmerBarrett, who has been living in Kamloops since last July. “I said no to coming back for as long as I could because I was busy. I’ve now come full circle and I’m back at the pool.” Riptech was without a head coach when board members got wind of BulmerBarrett’s arrival in the Tournament Capital. The club’s brain trust must have been salivating at the thought of hiring someone with her pedigree. The Edmontonborn diver competed for Canada at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. She also won gold in the three-metre event at the 1999 Pan American Games. Bulmer-Barrett, though, had been away from the sport since about 2005, raising children and pursuing a degree at the University of Calgary. Fortunately for Riptech, the timing was right for BulmerBarrett’s return as her husband’s job brought the family to Kamloops. “For so many years, from the age of seven until 24 or 25, I was fully immersed in competitive training in sports,” she said. “It was nice to have that break from the sport.” She will work alongside assistant coaches Asha Atkinson, Ashley Gerbrandt and Kelsey

ERYN BULMER-BARRETT: Former Olympian, Riptech Diving’s new head coach

Gwynne with a goal of improving the club, which has about 50 members. “The biggest challenge for me will be just to always recognize, if you have a group of six kids, you may have six very different personalities and you’ve got to figure out what makes them tick,” BulmerBarrett said. “You have to have a goal and a plan for all of them, to get them from Point A to Point B.” Bulmer-Barrett said she is looking forward to inspiring a new generation of divers. “The excitement for the sport is the hook,” she said. “If you get to be that coach that something you say or do resonates within them and they have excitement and they continue to evolve and grow in their confidence, then you’ve hit the jackpot. “I can’t tell you if I’m going to be an awesome coach, but I’m just going to try my best to be fair with the kids and try and draw something out of them.”

WolfPack start season in style The TRU WolfPack got the better of their rivals from Nanaimo on Sunday, Sept. 8. Both the men’s and women’s WolfPack soccer teams pushed their Pacific Western Athletic Association records to 2-0 with wins over the Vancouver Island University Mariners in hotly contested tilts at Hillside Stadium. “It was a very physical game,” said Alanna Bekkering, who scored twice in the Pack women’s 3-1 win over the Mariners, “probably the most physical one I have played in a long time, but that is the way VIU plays.” Kelsey Martin also scored for TRU in support of goalkeeper Emily Edmundson. On the men’s side, the WolfPack doubled the Mariners 4-2 on the back of goals from Oriol Torres, who scored twice, Justin Wallace and Kyle Logan. Travis Froehlich backstopped the WolfPack men. Renan Rebelatto of VIU was given a red card in the second half after the referee deemed he spat at a TRU player. “Whenever we play these guys it’s a chippy game,” WolfPack co-head coach John Antulov said. “Our guys had composure.” On Saturday, Sept. 7, TRU’s men downed the Capilano University Blues 2-1. Torres, from Barcelona, Spain, notched a pair of goals in that game. The WolfPack women had goals from Bronwyn Crawford and Jaydene Radu in a 2-1 over Capilano on Saturday. Both the men’s and women’s teams will spend the next three weekends on the road before returning to Hillside for matches with the UBC Okanagan Heat on Oct. 5.

Your Authorized First Canadian Extended Warranty Facility. HARPER LAKE IS A FAVOURITE FOR LOCAL ANGLERS.

Located just off the Trans-Canada Highway, slightly south of the Village of Chase, easy access is one of its main attractions. Early spring is the most popular season for this lake as its relatively low-altitude means it is always ice-free at the start of the May season. By this time, it has been ice-free long enough to spark hatches of insects in its warming waters. Although Harper Lake is slightly tannic and not as productive as other lakes in the region, its hatches are strong enough to make the phrase “match the hatch” worthwhile advice. Chironomids are always a solid bet in the

early spring. Knowledgeable fly-anglers target the shoals at the ends of the lake and around the sides. Strike indicators are often used to keep flies suspended at precise depths, usually 15 to 45 centimetres to (six to 18 inches) off the bottom. The lake is deep, which makes it popular with trollers in the summertime, high temperatures push trout off the shoals. Electronic fish-finders are good at finding the right trolling depth during the summer. Good fishfinders can even locate the thermocline — the band of water that separates the cool depths from the warmer surface water. Trolling just above or below the thermocline is a

WCT season opens with Dreary comedy By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

ARA BEAGAN was deep into research about fetal alcohol spectrum disorder when she woke up one morning in Lethbridge, Alta., circa 1975. “I woke up in that lucid dreaming state and I just dreamed Dreary and Izzy, these two girls,” Beagan said. “I knew them completely and their characters were fully formed.” A day later, she’d written 40 pages of what would eventually become Western Canada Theatre’s first production of the 2013-2014 season, which opens on Sept. 12 at the Pavilion Theatre. Though she’s the younger of the titular pair, Deirdre Monoghan has spent her whole life caring for her adopted sister Isabelle, who has fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. When her parents die at the start of the play, Dreary’s world shrinks down to Izzy and little else. “Even now that they’re in their 20s, socially they’re quite stymied because of that demand of just looking after Isabelle and keeping her out of trouble, really,” Beagan said.

‘It comes in waves’ X From B1

The two are struggling to stay afloat on their own when an attractive young vacuum salesman by the name of Freddy Seven Horses knocks on their door, offering more than just the latest models from Electrolux. “For me it’s very much about the potential for a happy life,� said Sharon Bakker, who plays the sisters’ Irish coffee-loving confidante, Mrs. Harder. “Two young women who have the potential, this incredible bond of sistership, who can get beyond the relationship of the caregiver and the care-needer and have this wonderful life together — if things don’t screw up.� Over the course of the play, however, that proves to be a pretty big “if.� Roseanne Supernault said the show has plenty in common with her character, Izzy. “There’s a lot of freedom in playing her. She’s so uninhibited. One thing of FASD is not correlating action and

consequence, not making that connection. “With her, everything she’s doing, there’s not really a consequence until it happens,� Supernault said. That means most of Izzy’s actions and interactions come in extremes. “She struggles with this heaven and hell complex. Everything she does is really, really good or really bad,� Supernault said. “It comes in waves.� While she has family with FASD, Supernault said playing Izzy meant letting go of some of her assumptions about the disorder. “When I first read it, even I had the preconceived notion of, ‘Are they going to put makeup on me?’ Because I didn’t even have that education about FASD,� she said. Doing research for the show, which included readings from Beagan and afternoons at the library watching videos, she learned FASD doesn’t necessarily have any outward signs. It’s a message she wants

audiences to take home as well. While Izzy’s FASD is one of Dreary and Izzy’s driving forces, the play is set at a time when few people would have fully understood it. One of the reasons Beagan chose to set the play in 1975 is because it’s the year the medical community first gave a name to the effects of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. “Previous to that, it was denial, denial, denial,� she said. That denial is as central to the story as FASD itself. “Really, the story is about how our inability to acknowledge something as big and awful as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder can lead to tragedy,� Beagan said. “It’s that story on a very small, intimate scale.� Dreary and Izzy runs at the Pavilion Theatre Sept. 12 to Sept. 28. Tickets are at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-3745483, or at kamloopslive.ca.

Beatles Burlesque at Dirty Jersey By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

When Blue Morris first asked his parents for a guitar at the age of eight so he could learn to play Twist and Shout, it’s likely he didn’t imagine putting his passion for the music of the Beatles to this kind of use. On Sept. 20, Morris will bring his own fab four to Kamloops’ Dirty Jersey for an evening of Beatles-themed burlesque. The night features four Vancouver-based burlesque dancers, a live band and plenty of tunes from all stages of the band’s career. “What I did is ensure that we had the whole history of Beatles music, because it changes so much from early Beatles to the later,” Morris said. “It’s such a different sound. “So I actually insisted that the dancers each do one early Beatles and one later Beatles song.

“So, that way, when people go to the show, they’ll hear all the songs they know.” While the striptease — emphasis on tease — is a major part of burlesque, Morris said it’s not all that’s at play in the show. “A lot of people that don’t see burlesque shows think, ‘Oh, maybe it’s just these sexy girls dancing’ but there’s so much more to burlesque, including a lot of humour, a lot of theatre and sometimes just things that make you think as well,” he said. And with so much variety in the Beatles catalogue, the show’s performers have taken a few opportunities to get a little strange. “We have a gal that actually does an act to Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey, a really rocking but kind of odd song,” Morris said. Another performer puts a new twist on the classic Help, asking the audience for just that as she

attempts to get out of her clothes. The band, in which Morris plays guitar, adds another twist to the show. By and large, modern burlesque shows are performed to pre-recorded music. “I think it’s really exciting because the band can alter how they play the songs depending on what we see the dancer do and depending on the energy the dancer gives us, and it gives the dancer energy in return,” Morris said. “Sometimes we’ll change the songs ever so slightly in order to suit a dance move. It’s nice to be able to have that kind of creative freedom that you wouldn’t be able to do with just a recorded track.” Beatles Burlesque begins at 9 p.m. at the Dirty Jersey, 1200 Eighth St., on Friday, Sept. 20. Tickets are 12 in advance, $15 at the door and can be purchased online at beatleskamloops.bpt. me.

It’s the best thing I did for myself.

She grew up in an era where she felt guilty taking time or spending money on herself. Everything was for the family, the husband, the children. She was raised to believe that. When she was young she had to work and study. There was never time for herself. When she got married, she had a good job, so did her husband. Money was not a problem. But there was never money for herself. And then the children came, a son and a daughter. She continued to work but now the money went to buy a skating outfit for her daughter, a bike for her son, but there was never money for herself. Her husband’s rationale was that spending $500 on groceries was okay, but it was certainly not normal to spend $80 on her hair. She accepted that because she thought that was the way it was supposed to be. Her body shape had changed following the birth of her children. And as the years passed, it became more noticeable. Her husband suggested that she stop eating and start walking, which she did. But at the age of 49 starving and walking is not the way to get back in shape. She had a woman friend in her office whose body shape was similar to hers but then it began to change. She was younger looking, more alive. She asked her what she was doing to look so good. She said she was going to Powertone Health Studio. “This woman got the courage to call me and start a program,” says Irene, owner of Powertone. “She didn’t tell anyone not her husband or her friends.” A few months later friends began noticing a difference. She was happier, trimmer, she was looking after herself. She told her husband and he agreed when he saw how different she was. “Life had become boring, a ritual of home and work, but nothing for myself. Suddenly I am loving life and myself, my body has changed, I feel younger. I’m starting to live again and my husband loves the difference.”

Based on the standard Audi A3 Sportback, the 2014 g-tron features the ability to run on gasoline, compressed natural gas and a synthetic methane Audi calls e-gas.

USED CAR? CAR?

A

UDI HAS PUT A NEW TWIST ON AN OLD IDEA AND COME UP WITH WHAT JUST MIGHT BE A SELF-SUSTAINING NATURAL GAS-POWERED CAR. Dual fuel is not new. You can find ethanol, propane and compressed natural-gas cars and trucks all over Canada. Where the Audi A3 Sportback g-tron is different is it can use gasoline, compressed natural gas or what Audi calls e-gas. The latter is a synthetic methane that Audi creates. It starts with two giant windmills in the North Sea owned by Audi. Power from these goes to a purpose-built prototype plant where the electricity is used to separate water into oxygen and hydrogen. The oxygen is vented into the atmosphere, while CO2 is added to the hydrogen during the “methanization” process in the plant, thus creating e-gas. The e-gas can then be stored or added to the existing natural-gas infrastructure much as solar panel owners add electricity to the grid. The gas is stored onboard the A3 g-tron in two fibre-reinforced plastic tanks. Because the tanks are glass-reinforced plastic, they only add 32 kilograms to the overall weight of car. But each tank can hold up to 14.4 kilograms of compressed e-gas for a range of 400 kilometres. X See A3 G-TRON B11

The interior of the Audi A3 Sportback g-tron is unchanged from the standard model.

X From B10

When the tanks are depleted, the driver switches over to gasoline. With two sources, Audi engineers at the g-tron presentation earlier this year in Berlin estimated a range of up to 1,300 kilometres. The engine in the A3 g-tron is a 1.4litre, turbocharged, direct fuel-injected four-cylinder able to run on all three fuels. Audi had a number of g-trons at its electrification symposium that also featured the A3 Sportback plugin hybrid Audi will import in 2015 and the astounding R8 e-tron electric supercar. The only visual difference on the A3 g-tron was the two fuel gauges and a switch to go from one fuel source to another. Presumably, one would use natural gas as much as possible, saving gasoline as the backup fuel supply. If you used only natural gas that was created by turbines, you would have sus-

tainable transportation for as long as there is water and wind. Through the streets of downtown Berlin, I drove on natural gas alone, finding the acceleration of the line sluggish, but the turbo quickly came into play with just a hint of lag. When it came to punching the “gas” for a lane change, the 1.4litre responded well. All the premium materials Audi puts into its vehicles were unchanged in the g-tron, giving the interior that Audi panache. The A3 g-tron goes on sale in Europe in 2014, but there are no plans to bring it to Canada at this time. But, with the proliferation of wind turbines in Ontario and the current oversupply of electricity, an e-gas facility or facilities makes for a compelling argument in favour. And, considering how much untapped gas we already have in this country, the A3 g-tron seems like a natural.

TOP ACHIEVER FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST

Bacon has been a cornerstone of cuisine since ancient Rome. In recent years the cured meat has transformed from a food to a lifestyle, inspiring everything from medical supplies to plush toys. On Aug. 31, International Bacon Day, Ford savored the salty side dish with the introduction of what is believed to be the first bacon-wrapped car — a 2014 Ford Fiesta. Ford is announcing the availability of custom bacon graphics that pork purists can have installed on their new Fiesta. The piece de resistance is the full “Bacon Wrap” — 10 giant strips of delicious bacon rolled around the entire Fiesta for a carb-free ride. While the bacon-wrapped Fiesta has all the looks of indulgence, it’s incredibly lean at the pump – with an EPA-estimated rating of up to (US) 41 mpg on the highway. And, unlike bacon grease, nothing gets sizzled away from the Fiesta interior, with technology and features worthy of a blue ribbon at any county fair. The bacon graphics are just a few custom exterior vinyl graphics Fiesta buyers can have installed on their ride to express their personalities.

Post-education system like a boat adrift So says NDP advanced-education critic David Eby as he tours the B.C. Interior By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

David Eby pulled off the biggest individual win on election night in May, defeating Premier Christy Clark in the riding of Vancouver-Point Grey. Alas, his New Democrats could not emulate Eby’s victory provincewide and the NDP remains in opposition for the next four years. Eby, in his new role as advanced-education critic, took his ears to campuses in Kamloops, Kelowna and Merritt this week to learn firsthand the concerns of students. He said he is hearing a common theme, one that comes from students, faculty, administration and support staff — the system is like a boat adrift right now, with no captain in charge and broken in many ways. Not surprisingly, Eby said, leading the list of concerns from students at Thompson Rivers University, UBCOkanagan, Okanagan College

and the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology in Merritt continues to be rising tuition costs and debilitating student debt. With housing costs factored in for non-local students, along with the fact maximum studentloan amounts of about $10,000 often do not come close to covering one year’s tuition for some undergrad programs, Eby said crippling debt has become alltoo common, “Students in B.C. studying part-time and working part-time is becoming a trend,” Eby said, noting a recent BMO study that showed students in British Columbia carry the highest student-loan debt in the country. Had the NDP won the May election, the party would have brought back a student-grant program, one funded by a bank tax. Instead, Eby said, the status quo — student loans on which interest begins piling up the moment the loan is taken out and years before the student actually begins to earn a salary on the courses studied — remains

GLADYS MARY (PEG) SCOTT April 1, 1916 – July 12, 2013 Peg passed peacefully at the Hamlets in Westsyde with her family comforting her for her final days. She was predeceased by Walter, her husband of 68 years in 2009. Also predeceased by brothers Dwight, Roy and sister Molly. Peg is survived by Robert (Dale) of 100 Mile House, Kathryn (Leslie) Ervin of West Kelowna and Jane (John) Kikkert of Okotoks , plus several grandchildren & great grandchildren. She is also survived by sister Mildred Reynolds of Port Alberni & and sister in-law Grace Caddell of Victoria. Peg was born in Wimbledon, England and immigrated to Canada as a toddler. Her early years were spent in Kingston, Ontario & Winnipeg, Manitoba, where her father was posted as a member of the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. After her mothers death in 1928, the children were cared for in an orphanage in Winnipeg. After the death of their father in early 1929, the siblings were adopted by three cousins in Victoria. Peg worked in the Saanich municipal office, and married Walter in 1941 in Victoria. Son Robert was born in 1944 prior to their moving to Kamloops in 1945. Daughter Kathryn was born in 1946 and daughter Jane in 1950, both in Kamloops Hospital. Peg was a matron at the Kamloops Correctional Gaol in the 1960’s. After Walter’s retirement in 1972, they relocated to Sorrento, then returned to Kamloops in 1991. They moved to Berwick on the Park in 2002, then to the Hamlets when it opened. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Hamlets for the fine care both Peg & Walter received over the years. In lieu of flowers donations in honour of Peg’s life may be made to the Alzheimer Society. You are invited to join a celebration of her life at the Hamlets at Westsyde, 3255 Overlander Dr, Kamloops, at 2pm Saturday, September 14, 2013.

a “penny-wise, poundfoolish” procedure. He said the system is also broken by not having a clear understanding of the infrastructure required for international students. Eby pointed to two sides of the foreign-student coin: Private institutions offering English as a second language, but not regulated by government; and public institutions that haven’t put the necessary measures in place to address issues unique to those unfamiliar with Canadian culture. As for the first, Eby said it damages the province’s image to have students come to B.C. and spend a lot of money for courses at institutions that may then shut down and not reimburse the tuition and/or provide a shoddy education. In the public sector, Eby said, he has talked with teaching assistants who are spending

“a disproportionate amount of time teaching English skills” to students so they can understand their courses. The same lack of infrastructure exists for special-needs students, Eby said, “when all you need to do is build that extra service and support to help them.”

Support services are one of the first to be cut, he said, which harms those “who need a bit more support.” “If they fail, we are supporting them for the rest of their life when, if we just give them that help and they succeed, they can often go on to live a full life.” Eby said when he was making a post-secondary decision, his goal was to graduate and get a job, but he chose courses he felt would do more than that and provide him with more education. With the changing job market, he said, today’s student is often forced to look at post-secondary education as less of an educational opportunity and more of a skills-acquiring necessity. The problem comes in trying to predict what jobs will be looking for workers in three or four years when they graduate, Eby said. “We need to teach people how to respond to a rapidly changing society — and one of the questions we need to ask is: Is the system working for B.C.?”

A Vanished Friend Around the corner I have a friend In this great city that has no end; Yet days go by, and weeks rush on, And before I know it a year has gone, And I never see my old friend’s face, For life is a swift and terrible race. He knows I like him just as well As in the days when I rang his bell, And he rang mine. We were younger then, And now we are busy, tired men, Tired of playing a foolish game, Tired with trying to make a name. “Tomorrow, I will call on Jim, Just to show that I am thinking of him.” But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And A the distance between us grows and grows, grow ws, Around the corner, yet miles away “Here’s a telegram, sir,” “Jim died today!” And A that’s what we get, and deserve in the en end, nd, Around the corner a vanished friend!!
