cave men Caver Chas Yonge explores the Devil’s Washing Machine in Glacier National Park. Nicholaus Vieira photo
By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
When Nicholaus Vieira goes into a cave, Ann Cheeptham knows she’ll soon be busy. Vieira is an extreme caver and, when he goes into some of the deepest and darkest caves, he collects micro-organism samples he sends to Cheeptham, a microbiologist who teaches at Thompson Rivers University. She uses these samples in her research, trying to identify those that might be used to create new antibiotics. The work will be highlighted in the Saturday, Sept. 28, season premiere of 16x9, a currentaffairs program on Global. The pairing is the result of the tried-and-true somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody.
Cheeptham said she met Philip Whitfield, a caver and president of the B.C. Speleological Federation, and told him of her work. (Speleogology is the study of caves). “Nick called me,” Cheeptham said, “because Phil had put my name out to people he knows and about the work we do here.” The television segment came about when Carolyn Jarvis, the chief correspondent on the show, called Cheeptham on the advice of Vieira. Cheeptham was delighted to find someone who not only could take on some of the cave exploration she and her students had been doing, but somebody willing — eager, in fact — to go into those deeper, darker and often colder crevices she cannot enter. The TV segment will feature
Vieira’s work for Cheeptham in Glacier National Park between Revelstoke and Golden. The caver has gone into the Nakimu Caves, a six-kilometre cave system in the park that is made up of cold, damp caverns and narrow passageways. He told KTW he got hooked on his profession when he was a novice caver in a location with others, a cave that had seen plenty of people go through it. “Someone in the group looked down and said, ‘What’s that in the water?’ and we discovered it was a troglobite no one knew was there,” Vieira said. A troglobite is a creature that lives in the dark parts of caves. That’s what really hooked me, discovering things,” he said. “You discover a lot about yourself, as well.” X See CAVE CULTURE A21
There was opinion, but little action, as councillors this week debated what to do about the Kamloops Pro-Life Society’s banner, which was back in the sky this month over Tranquille Road and Victoria Street. The banner, which reads “one life can make a difference” and “protect human life week,” stirred up controversy in 2012, despite having been hung without complaint for several years before that. While the outcry was more muted this year, the city did get a letter from Allysa Gredling, who also wrote in 2012 to express her distaste for the banner. “I do not understand why city councils are choosing to support these discriminatory activities,” she wrote, “But, your choice speaks volumes about a complete lack of respect for the individual rights of women in Kamloops and everywhere.” Coun. Nelly Dever agreed. “Basically, I don’t understand why we’re allowing this banner to be up because I think it goes against the rights of women,” she told council. CAO David Trawin said the city’s lawyers have looked at the sign and at council’s policy on banners and don’t think the city can remove it without vio-
lating its own policies. That could leave the city open to being sued. “We certainly support individual rights of women,” Coun. Tina Lange said. “But, the bottom line is, legally, our hands our tied.” That wasn’t good enough for Coun. Donovan Cavers, who wanted the city’s legal team to review its decision in conjunction with an opinion from the West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund relating to struggles Kelowna has had with proclamations of human right-tolife week. Only Lange and Coun. Nancy Bepple supported Cavers’ bid. Coun. Pat Wallace believes language on the banner is vague enough that it isn’t necessarily upsetting. “We have a country in the east that just fumigated a few hundred children to death,” she said in reference to ongoign strife in Syria. “All this says is ‘protect human life.’ You can read anything into that.” Cavers disagreed, arguing that since the banner also bears the pro-life group’s logo, the underlying theme is obvious. “When anyone knows what the mandate of this group is, the words read ‘donot-have-an-abortion week,’” he said. Council agreed to send Gredling a letter explaining why the banner will continue to fly.

Son who killed dad to be sentenced next week By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
A B.C. Supreme Court judge has accepted a Kamloops man’s guilty plea to a charge of second-degree murder after he stabbed his father to death in March 2012 over $20. Jaipreet Singh Toor entered his guilty plea in Courtroom 5D of the Kamloops Law Courts on Tuesday, Sept. 24, after B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan decided the 46-year-old understood the charge against him and was not suffering from “a disease of the mind.” On March 20, 2012, Toor stabbed his father, Harsewak Singh Toor, 31 times in the chest during an argument over $20 at the family’s Brocklehurst home. Court heard the younger Toor had
borrowed $10 from his 81-year-old father earlier in the day — money he spent on two cans of beer at a North Shore liquor store. He then returned to his father, asking for another $20. “His father refused and began to lecture him about getting a job and getting a licence,” Crown prosecutor Chris Balison said. “Mr. Toor resented the fact his father had sufficient money and was not giving it to him.” The younger Toor went to another room in the house and grabbed a knife before once again confronting his father. Balison said the elder Toor again refused his son’s demand, at which point he was stabbed numerous times. The struggle spilled out into the family’s front yard, where Jaipreet
Toor eventually left his father’s dead body with a knife sticking out of his chest. “He then called 911 to report to the 911 operator, ‘I stabbed him to death. This happened just because I fu--ing wanted to,’” Balison said as he repeated words of the accused. Toor has a criminal record including convictions for assault and alcohol-related offences dating back to 2008. Last week, he was convicted of assault following an altercation involving a corrections officer at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre, where he has been held since his arrest following the murder. Someone with the name Jaipreet Toor operated a blog, snapcountready.wordpress.com, which appears to have been based in Kamloops.
In a post dated April 11, 2009, the blogger talks about his apparent dealings with Kamloops RCMP. “I was forced to commit suicide three times because my circumstances were made such,” the post reads. “Now I feel there is divine intervention in my life a secure feeling at least I can blog about my situation before I get arrested again.” Other posts on the blog reference Osama bin Laden as the blogger’s “dad” and the blogger himself as “the dragon.” The same person also apparently operated a Twitter account — @jaytravolta. Tweets from the user, whose information states he lives in Kamloops, also reference bin Laden. Toor, who is representing himself in court, was found by Donegan to be of sound mind.
“There is no evidence before the court that Mr. Toor is not fit to stand trial,” the judge said, calling Toor “articulate and bright.” If Donegan had refused to accept his guilty plea, a plea of not guilty would have been entered by the court on Toor’s behalf and his matter would have proceeded to trial. A second-degree murder conviction brings with it an automatic life sentence. The only issue left for Donegan to decide is how long Toor will have to wait before becoming eligible for parole — anywhere between 10 and 25 years. The Crown is seeking a 12- to 14-year period of parole ineligibility, while Toor told court he would prefer 10 years. Donegan is slated to make her decision on Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Industrial areas for pot grows By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org

Should a company of aspiring medical-marijuana growers decide to set up shop in Kamloops, they will be limited to industrial lands after city council agreed to new regulations for grow-ops at a surprisingly quiet public hearing on Tuesday (Sept. 24) night. While a few members of the public watched from the gallery, no one came forward to speak for or against the regulations. Until June, medical-marijuana users were able to apply for a government licence to grow pot at home. Under the new system, it will be grown entirely by commercial entities and mailed to users. Coun. Marg Spina questioned whether the city needed to worry about the issue at all, noting she’s been told no B.C. growers have yet applied to grow medical marijuana for the federal government. Mayor Peter Milobar said the
regulations were getting ahead of the game and would mean that if a company did decide to set up in Kamloops, it could do so with a little less publicity than if it was required to apply for a site-specific variance. Planning and development manager Randy Lambright told council the city does have two inquiries from people interested in growing medical pot in Kamloops. Houses that have served as medical-marijuana grows are also targeted in the regulations. Homeowners will now be required to disclose a home’s grow-op past when trying to sell and will be required to perform the same type of remediation as the owners of a property used for an illegal grow. Coun. Donovan Cavers was the only councillor to vote against the regulations. He told KTW he wanted to see medical-marijuana grows allowed on agricultural lands as well. “It’s a plant,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a pharmaceutical product.”

New North Shore home for RCMP By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Kamloops’ North Shore contingent of the RCMP will be on the move in the next few years. During an in-camera meeting this week, city council agreed to buy the Kamloops Kia dealership property at 915 Seventh St. to serve as the future site of the city’s North Shore Community Policing Office. The deal will cost $1 million, funded through borrowing. City CAO David Trawin said Mounties are running out of space in their current office on Fortune Drive and are experiencing a similar
crunch on the South Shore. While there is room to expand on Fortune Drive, where the city leases the land, Trawin said that would only temporarily solve the space problem. “What we wanted to do was ensure that we secured a place for the next 20, 25, 30 years on the North Shore for the people of the North Shore,” he said. Council’s resolution, released to the public at the Tuesday Sept. 25, council meeting, calls for the city’s Fortune Drive lease to continue until the end of 2015. Trawin said Kamloops Kia will also lease the Seventh Street land back from the city for one
No left turns onto Second? Left-hand turns from Columbia Street onto Second Avenue could soon become a thing of the past as the city looks at closing off Second as part of a major overhaul of Columbia this winter. Bob Mitchell, who was involved in a rear-end pile up at the intersection in August, wrote to council to complain about the intersection. He said with no lefthand-turn lane at Second, it’s easy for drivers to get confused about whether the car ahead of them is turning onto Second or Third. Development and engineering services director Marvin Kwiatkowski said the city knows rear-end collisions are an issue at the intersection — in the 20122013 fiscal year, there were nearly 30 — and wants to see what people think about getting rid of the left-turn option at Second. “There are some pros and there are some cons, and we want to hear from the neighbourhood as well.”

more year as it finishes building a new dealership elsewhere. The city last looked at moving the North Shore office in 2010, when it considered shuffling the satellite detachment into the former TNRD Library Building on Tranquille Road.
The move would have cost $200,000, plus an annual lease of $168,000. At the time, the lease at the Fortune Drive location was $45,000 a year. The plan was voted down by council during that year’s budget discussions.

John Tod community centre gets the nod By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
It won’t have a fancy new entryway, but the community centre Kamloops city council has decided to build in the former John Tod elementary building will likely have both community groups involved in its design in residence. Council this week voted to build a $1.8-million centre at the closed North Kamloops school to house the Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops and the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA. The plan is something of a compromise. The two community groups had devised a concept for the project that would cost about $3.6 million, while the city had suggested it was willing to support about $1.5 million in renovations, with $500,000 of that money coming from the partner organizations. The other $1 million was already slated to go to renovations at the Boys and Girls Club’s MacArthur Island digs, which will now be demolished. To lower the $3.6-million price
tag, the city is nixing a new lobby and entryway for the community centre that would have cost about $1 million on its own. “That common lobby is a million-dollar problem and, if we spend $1 million on that, we have no money to do anything else,” parks director Byron McCorkell said, noting $1.8 million will be enough to get the building open and running. “It doesn’t necessarily get everything that we have in the conceptual plan, but we believe we had enough to get the Boys and Girls Club in and the Y settled,” he said. To fund the work, the city will borrow $500,000. Half of that will go to the YMCA as a five-year loan. It’s not clear how the Boys and Girls Club will come up with $250,000, though McCorkell suggested fundraising in the community will account for some of it. Also in the mix is $250,000 from the Western Economic Diversification Fund and a $50,000 accessibility grant. Mayor Peter Milobar said the city can still look at doing more
renovations and building a new entryway for the centre in four or five years. “I recognize it’s not maybe the full ultimate build-out, but I think it’s a good opportunity for us to get both groups into the building, get them up and operating well,” he said. Y CEO Colin Reid said council’s commitment is enough to keep at least some Y programs in the space. “It’s maybe not the decision we were looking for but it’s a step in the right direction,” he said. “I think the new entrance gave the whole site new life. It created a community gathering place. It created excitement that turned an old school into something new and provided something exciting for the neighbourhood.” Reid is not sure what programs will make the move to John Tod from the Y’s current home in Northills Shopping Centre, though he said the YMCA’s fitness-based offerings may make the most sense, given the centre’s gym and playing fields.

Not exactly a banner day for debate at Kamloops city hall
FRIEND WHOSE opinions I respect was pretty enraged this week — and rightly so. Her anger came from the kerfuffle that made its way to this week’s meeting of city council, the debate over a banner that flew over Tranquille Road and Victoria Street. The message on the banner is pretty simple: One Life Can Make a Difference — Protect Human Life Week It’s a sentiment with which we can all agree in its global application but, because the banners come from a pro-life organization, that simple definition of human life takes on enormous political meaning. My friend was angry because she’s one of those women who is strong enough in her own attitudes that a large piece of plastic hanging above traffic isn’t going to make much of a difference to her belief system. The issue came forward after a letter from Allysa Gredling who, in her letter to council, raised many valid issues that society needs to look at and consider. She writes about what she calls the war on women being waged by the Republican party in the U.S. — a viewpoint with which I agree — and about those ridiculous backbenchers in our own federal government who continue to try to push women back into the 1920s with their attempt to put restrictions on a woman’s right to an abortion. Unfortunately, the letter to coun-
DALE BASS Street
LEVEL cil is filled with footnotes, something I want to applaud, but find not only unnecessary, but which implies to me a belief Gredling thinks our councillors have been living in a cave and are unaware of the world in which they live. The simple reality is this — the pro-life movement has as much right to express itself as does the women’s-choice side. Our city administration refers to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in deciding what banners it can and cannot approve. The second clause in that document, one that sets out the groundwork legally that helps define Canadians, is pretty clear: 2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (a) freedom of conscience and religion; (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and (d) freedom of association. In my view, the pro-life movement has as much legal right to its
views, which I believe to be wrong, as I do to hold my beliefs. It is mind-boggling trying to determine what shred of logic lies behind Coun. Nelly Dever’s assertion the banner goes against the rights of women. It does nothing to infringe on my rights or those of my friend; it’s offensive to me, but lots of things I see I find offensive. It may conflict with Dever’s beliefs, but it does not have much more impact than that. I find it more of an issue that Dever chose such an over-the-top nonsensical argument to defend her viewpoint. Women like her, who appear to be intolerant of anything with which they don’t agree, are more offensive to me because they feel a need to impose their own viewpoints on everyone else. I have pro-life friends. We agree to disagree, but they respect my right to hold my viewpoints and I respect theirs. Coun. Pat Wallace perhaps spoke the clearest when she said she wasn’t interested in wasting any more time debating the issue. She gets it. People have the right to their own viewpoints and the right to disagree with other’s viewpoints. The charter protects those rights. When we start demanding people be muzzled, what does that make us? email@example.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com
Yes, it would be nice if a revamped John Tod elementary opened soon with a fabulous, $1-million entranceway and lobby leading to a welcoming community centre. But, city council’s decision to approve Plan B, rather than the gold-plated option, deserves a round of applause from taxpayers. It seems these fragile economic times will not end any time soon, so city council’s decision to proceed with a $1.8-million community centre at the former North Kamloops school is one grounded in reality. The $3.6-million option would have included a million bucks for the impressive entranceway and lobby, but the urgent matter now is not bells and whistles, but simply creating a community centre for North Shore residents. No matter how you look at it, $1.8 million is a lot of money — but it will deliver a lot to the forlorn building at which the sounds of bells and kids playing has been replaced by the echoes of a veritable ghost town. When the money is spent and work is done, John Tod will regain its vibrancy and its place as a focal point of the neighbourhood. The Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops and the North Shore Y will move into the building, helping the structure continue its legacy of nurturing young minds and bodies. That this can be done while city council remains mindful of a taxpayer base that is facing constant increases in daily living is admirable.

Welcome to Canada’s no-care health system Editor: My 84-year-old mother informed me she received a letter from her doctor, advising her on a surgery date for a knee replacement in a few weeks. She was also told she would be sent home after eight hours to fend for herself. There is no longer post-operative care offered at Royal Inland Hospital — one must go home and make do on their own, regardless of whether they have someone to help them. This is the worst kind of care, essentially no care. How can we even call this a health-care system? It has deteriorated to being ranked around 35th in the world from a previous ranking in the top 10. At one time, Canada was ranked second. Not any more. Third World countries have better systems than ours. Cuba, for instance, is the health-care mecca of the Carribean, where all go to get good care. We are being abused by our system,
which decides to operate and send patients home with their poison (drugs) from Big Pharma, which makes more than a trillion dollars every year. According to sudies, pharmaceutical drugs and mistakes in hospitals are the third-leading cause of death in hospitals in Canada and the United States. Why isn’t something done about this? These are staggering numbers, a lot more worrisome than the so-called threat of terrorism constantly being rammed down our throats. It is becoming a known fact most “terror attacks” are inside jobs with government knowledge, designed to instill fear in the populace in order to control it. Our society is so broken in every way through corruption and lies, perhaps the people have just given up. They can’t really be that complacent, can they? People should be protesting in the streets about the state of our no-care
health system. Why isn’t there a cure for cancer after all the billions raised yearly for research? There is no money in cures. Nobody wants to do anything as long as they get their paycheque and don’t ruffle feathers. Are people really that dumbed-down and duped that no one seems to care about the state our world? No wonder our health care is a complete failure — it is just following suit with the rest of our systems. People should not “run for the cure” because there never will be a a cure. People should “run for the cause” because that is the real issue. We need to do our research. Our future, and our children’s future, depend on it.

Walking through life of a mine

Students, public can learn all about it at Kamloops conference firstname.lastname@example.org
The life of a mine can go on for decades. Local students, however, will have the chance to learn about it from exploration to reclamation in about 90 minutes at the Maintenance Engineering/Mines Operators Conference in Kamloops, which begins this weekend. From Sunday, Sept. 29, to Tuesday, Oct. 1, people from across Canada who work in mining will have a chance to take part in workshops to help them do their jobs better. But, for Royanna Wild, the best part is what she’s working on, bringing the educational show M4S — all things mine, minerals, metals and materials — to an expected 400 area students. Wild, a land and technical-data specialist with KGHM, is passionate about rocks.
A geologist by trade, she remembers her love of them starting in childhood and leading her to get a degree in geology. She sees the five pavilions that will take students through mining as a chance for students to “learn what the industry is all about and, hopefully, come and learn as much as they can.” The political cloud that surrounds her company has nothing to do with the pavilions, Wild said. The conference simply offers a chance to teach kids about exploration, mining and processing, sustainability and safety, education and careers and the products created. Interactive activities are key and the goal, beyond adding to their knowledge, is to show students the role mining plays in their own lives. For example, the exploration pavilion features maps, tools and technology that

Support the RED Dream The aim of the Kamloops Communities in Bloom Bicentennial Project is to enhance the Red Bridge in a number of ways and to eventually make it an iconic landmark visible from the air, highways, walkways, and throughout the city. PHASE ONE was completed in 2012 with the improvement of entrances and installation of a Heritage Recognition and new Red Bridge sign. PHASE TWO is near completion and an ofﬁcial launch showcasing the two Kiosks, red brick walkway and sponsored benches is planned for Monday, October 21, 2013. Fundraising for PHASE THREE of the Red Bridge Project is ongoing with plans to see the bridge come alive at night with ﬂood lighting by September 2015 – leaving a lasting impression for the residents of Kamloops and becoming a “must see” and memorable stop for visitors to our city.
It’s more than just flowers!

Face of HIV/AIDS has changed By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The face of HIV and AIDS has changed through the years â€” and itâ€™s become younger, with at least half of all new diagnoses in the country involving people between the ages of 15 and 29. The face is no longer that of a gay person, either, said Kira Haug of ASK Wellness Centre â€” most new cases result from drug use. More importantly, the face is no longer that of someone with a death sentence over their head as treatments have improved to the point people are living their lives, albeit dependent on expensive medicines they must take forever. The stigma, however, remains on what was, when it was first
documented in the 1980s, called the gay plague â€” a reality Haugâ€™s agency fights daily. Friday, Sept. 27, will be a special day in that fight as the agency hosts its first Walk With Us for HIV-AIDS Awareness at its North Kamloops office, 433 Tranquille Rd., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Itâ€™s not an event like the larger walks the agency has held in the past, but more of a gathering of friends and family, with the barbecue heated up, a DJ spinning some tunes and like-minded agencies getting together to share information and answer questions. There will be a bit of a walk from the office up Tranquille Road to the corner, down toward Spirit Square and then back to the ASK location.

What Should You Do if Someone is Having a Heart Attack?
W. Gifford-Jones, MD
t has been widely talked about for many years so it doesnâ€™t come as a big surprise... heart disease, strokes and heart attacks are at an all-time high, affecting millions of Canadians. In fact, about 8 out of 10 Canadians are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease -a devastating illness that 74,000 people die from each year.
What exactly is a heart attack? When the blood supply to the heart is slowed or stopped because of a blockage, a heart attack occurs. Atherosclerosis, the narrowing of coronary arteries due to plaque buildup, causes more than 90% of heart attacks. A heart attack may also occur when a coronary artery temporarily contracts or goes into a severe spasm, shutting off blood flow to the heart. Not all people who have heart attacks experience the same symptoms or experience them to the same degree. Many heart attacks arenâ€™t as dramatic as the ones youâ€™ve seen on TV. Some people have no symptoms at all, while for others, the first sign may be sudden cardiac arrest. Still, the more signs and symptoms, the greater the likelihood that person may be having a heart attack. The severity of heart attack symptoms can vary too. Some people have mild pain, while others experience severe pain. A heart attack can occur anytime â€” at work or play, while youâ€™re resting, or while youâ€™re in motion. Some heart attacks strike suddenly, but many people who experience a heart attack have warning signs and symptoms hours, days or weeks in advance. The earliest warning of a heart attack may be recurrent chest pain (angina) that is triggered by exertion. Angina is caused by a temporary decrease in blood flow to the heart.
Common symptoms include: R55,--/,65.#!".(--65*#(65),55-+/4#(!5),5"#(!55 5 sensation in the chest or arms. It may also spread to the neck, jaw or back.

School of Nursing gets cash for spaces The provincial government is putting some more money into health-care education and Thompson Rivers University will benefit. TRU will receive $252,800 for its School of Nursing to open spaces for students in its healthcare assistants program. The money is part of $1.8 million going to a dozen programs in the health-care field. TRU will use the money to fund a March intake of 32 students in the certificate program. Currently, it has intakes in September and January. The program lasts for 24 weeks and is designed to teach skills required to work with older adults in residential-care and assisted-living facilities, as well as in people with chronic conditions who remain in their homes.
Romanow to speak on health care’s future Former Saskatchewan NDP premier Roy Romanow will speak on the future of health care in the country on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at Thompson Rivers University. Romanow was the named head of a commission on health care after he retired from politics in 2001. He released a report the following year that recommended sweeping changes to the system, in particular financing health care in the country and improving funding. Romanow’s free lecture in the Irving K. Barber Centre on campus is part of the Dave Barrett Lecture Series organized by the school of social work and human services.

Potential deal with CUPE By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
A deal appears to be in place. What remains is how the deal will be funded. By Oct. 15, administration at the Kamloops-Thompson school district will have to submit to the provincial government a savings plan that shows how it will pay for wage increases that will likely go into place after a tentative agreement was reached with the union representing support staff. The potential deal was reached last week, one that will see the 27,000 school-board staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees receive a retroactive raise of one per cent, effect July 1, 2012, a 2.5 per cent increase on Feb. 1, 2014 and a half per cent increase in May 2014. The contract expires at the end of June 2014. Staff had been working without a contract for more than a year as bargaining progressed. Kamloops-Thompson school district Supt. Terry Sullivan said the delay in finalizing a deal was the provincial governmentâ€™s requirement any wage increases in the public sector be funded
through comparative gains â€” in essence, find the money somewhere because there will be no more coming from the government for salaries. Sullivan said a framework being negotiated at the provincial level was not resolved until earlier in the day on Wednesday and, once that was in place, a deal with CUPE Local 3500 was easy to reach. Sullivan said it shouldnâ€™t be a challenge paying for the first increase because the district is in a good financial position, with a surplus that can be dipped into to pay wages. The subsequent pay hikes must be justified through a savings plan, something Sullivan does not foresee as posing significant problems because the district has worked hard in recent years to find ways to save money. For example, it pays less on fuel now than it did in 2004 and 2005, he said. The union represents education assistants, clerical, trades, maintenance and technology staff and bus drivers. Sullivan said he has always maintained throughout bargaining the employees represented by CUPE â€œare the lowest paid and they are entitled to a wage increase.â€?
John Hall, president of the Kamloops CUPE local, was not available for comment and no date for a ratification vote has been announced. Sullivan said the next priority is to resolve bargaining with the B.C. Teachersâ€™ Federation, something that has been put on hiatus as the unionâ€™s court challenge to government restrictions on its bargaining rights is heard in B.C. Supreme Court. In 2011, the court ruled on an application from the BCTF on a 2002 provincial law change that removed its right to bargain class sizes and composition, among other issues. The court declared the action unconstitutional and directed the government to make changes. The BCTF is back in court arguing the government has ignored the repercussions of the ruling and that Bill 22, which was passed by the province last year to end strike action by teachers and require a mediator negotiate an agreement, is also unconstitutional. The court began hearing the application earlier this month, with more dates scheduled for October. Sullivan said thereâ€™s no indication when a ruling will be rendered and bargaining with teachers can begin again.

MALL MANAGER GOES BACK TO SCHOOL the profession, including centre maintenance, leasing negotiations or administration, retailing, merchandising, marketing or promotion, community relations, financing, purchasing insurance, security and law. Those who have tried their hand at online courses know it can often be a challenge to meet deadlines without the added incentive of in-class work and deadline reminders from professors. In Tarrant’s case, getting to the computer was even tougher because she had a wedding to plan.
“I hadn’t been in school in 20 years, I was working full-time and I got married in July,” Tarrant said. “You have to be disciplined. The deadline comes and you have to make time to get it done.” She did manage to tie the knot in July and became a certified shopping-centre manager on Aug. 30. There were only 21 Canadians enrolled in the ICSC course in 2012, according to Tarrant, and graduating might open up options for her in the future, but she is looking forward to applying what she has learned at Northills. “Now that I have the course, this is definitely the best place to be for right now, to be able to put what I’ve just learned to work,” she said. “For all of us, for myself and my staff, it’s about implementing some structure, new policies, new ideas and it definitely gives us a new outlook.”

The North Shore mall’s operations manager recently completed an online Shopping Centre Management course through the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), a New York-based company. “This really gives me an opportunity for growth within my industry and provides me and my staff with a better understanding of our profession,” said Tarrant, who has worked at Northills for 10 years and managed since 2007. “I’d like to apply the new skills to reach some new goals.” The one-year course focuses on many areas of

United Way sets $2-million fundraising goal A record-setting crowd of 523 people ambled into the Kamloops Convention Centre on Tuesday, Sept. 24, to attend the 2013 United Way Kickoff Breakfast. The annual event held early in the morning is always a bustling affair as the business community in Kamloops and outlying areas meet to pledge support to the United Way, which helps myriad agencies and programs throughout the Thompson, Nicola and Cariboo regions. Executive director Brenda Aynsley detailed some of the work the United Way has done and continues to do — including in-school mentoring of more than 300 students; helping 174 high-school students take part in Youth Day of Caring; awarding 16 youth-initiative grants; buying five sport wheelchairs for disabled athletes; helping create three
neighbourhood associations; partnering with the Kamloops Homelessness Plan; and arranging eight Kamloops Rent Bank loans. In 2012, the United Way raised $2.2 million, which was $200,000 more than its goal of $2 million. This year, the organization is again aiming to raise $2 million for worthy causes — and it got a massive boost at the breakfast via corporate pledges: • Highland Valley Copper will donate a maximum of $300,000 its program of matching employee donations dollar for dollar. • CN Rail will donate $21,675. • Kelson Group will donate $15,000. • Canadian Tire will donate more than $10,000 ($3,300 plus proceeds from staff members donating one day’s wages). • KGHM Ajax will
donate $10,000. • Royal Bank of Canada will donate $11,000. • CIBC branches in Kamloops, Logan Lake, 100 Mile House and Williams Lake will donate $6,000. • HMZ Law will donate $5,000. • Molycop will donate $5,000. • Scotiabank downtown branch will donate $3,550. • Bank of Montreal will donate $3,500. • TRU Sports Lounge will donate 100 per cent of all proceeds from sales on Sunday, Sept. 29. In addition, a number of companies have pledged to match employee donations at 100 per cent and 50 per cent levels. The kickoff breakfast also recognized last year’s fundraising efforts, with a number of awards handed out: • Largest Regional Employee Campaign:
CEP Local 10B at Domtar ($76,904). • Largest Cariboo Corporate and Employee Campaign: Gibraltar Mines ($100,000-plus). • Quantum Leap Award (largest yearto-year increase in contributions): United Steelworkers at Canfor Vavenby ($5,600 to $20,000). • Largest Regional Campaign Corporate: Highland Valley Copper. • Regional Rookie Award: District of Clearwater ($3,000). • Highest Per Capita Giving Award: Bank of Montreal Columbia Street Branch (41 employees). • Largest Regional Employer Campaign: Highland Valley Copper/ United Steelworker Local 7619 ($335,000plus). • Kamloops Rookie Campaign: Lafarge • Most Fun Special Event: Finning Canada • Greatest Impact
Special Event: Jail and Bail (raised $32,000 in 2011 and $92,000 in
2012). For more information on the United Way’s
efforts in the Kamloops area, go online to unitedway.tnc.ca.

SD73 eyeing security measures Trustees reviewing report on safety in school-district facilities By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Terry Sullivan remembers the drills in his Halifax schoolroom. “We would get under our desks while they had the nuclear-war drills,” the superintendent for the KamloopsThompson school board said. “And then, they’d have us leave school with a book on our head, as if that was going to protect us.” It’s a different world, now, he said, and the reality is schools need to constantly review their safety procedures to ensure students are protected from harm. Trustees are now reviewing a report from Michelle Marginet, the district’s manager of health and safety, one that has a series of recommendations to address safety and security in school-
district facilities. Sullivan said many of them are simple things — improving the system that controls keys, controlling access to school buildings and ensuring people are clearly identified through staff or visitor name tags. Key control alone is something that has to be tightened, Sullivan said, noting he had a call last year about a student who had somehow accessed a key “and was planning a party in a gym in one of our schools.” Marginet said schools remain safe, but society has changed. She noted in her hometown there were air-raid sirens that were tested every year “and we didn’t really even know what they were when we were kids.” She said there have never been any serious incidents in district
schools, although there have been people arrested in them. “It’s a preventative and pro-active thing,” she said. There are several recommendations, including changes to
engaged so they can be just shut if a danger occurs. Advantages and disadvantages of various access systems, including installation of a locked, staffed vestibule area that can be equipped with metal detectors, is also part of the report. Other access options presented include swipe cards, convex mirrors or security cameras.
administration controls, procedures and training, making drills consistent in all schools, requiring the use of identification tags, improved signage and training in threat assessment for administration and front-office staff. Other recommendations include ensuring all exterior doors are locked and classroom doors, while they can be open, have locks

COVER PAGE STORY
CAVE CULTURE COMES TO TV SCREEN X From A1
On his website, aptly called crazycaver.com, Vieira talks of having to swim through a low canal with dive equipment because the water was almost to the ceiling of the part of the cave he was headed for, where samples he and his group had collected through a process Cheeptham taught them were waiting to be retrieved. The website notes Vieira saw orange, white, black and sometimes pink bacterial cultures on the collection plates.
“And now, we’ve found really good stuff.” The show will air at 7 p.m. and will be available online on Monday, Sept. 30, where it can be
Those cultures go to Cheeptham’s lab, where she tests them to see if any might be used to produce antibacterial drugs. She is fascinated by micro-organisms, which drew Cheeptham to her profession. “I look at everything. I had my son looking at some rotten grapes I found in the fridge through a microscope,” she said. “I’m a nerd.” Cheeptham decided to look for bacteria in the deepest recesses of caves because it presented the best potential.

A busy summer in mental health discoveries
F YOU TURN your back for a minute, you miss something impor-
tant. That is true in both television murder mysteries and in discoveries in mental health research. Because we like you to hear news first in Kamloops This Week, here is what others will be talking about in a few weeks: Cocoa is more than a treat — it’s good for your brain and mental health! Do you want to increase blood flow in the brain that leads to more neuron activity? You do if you want a younger brain that is more resistant to Alzheimer’s-like conditions. This month, Women’s Hospital in Boston is saying you should drink cocoa to achieve this. Their new study shows that not only drinking cocoa improves neuron activity but it also causes better cognitive performance. One of the spinoffs of this research is scientists are close to finding the biomarkers that predict dementia — and, once they do that, they can start homing in on better treatments or a cure. Stop those sugary treats and drinks! Higher sugar levels in the blood — even if lower than diabetic range — increase the risk of dementia. The University of Washington in Seattle
CORRECTION A story in the Sept. 24 edition of KTW (‘Tracking the changes in downtown Kamloops’) contained an erroneous name attached to a new business in the downtown core. The business that will occupy the space on Third Avenue vacated by Cuz I’m Magic is Life Ink Tattoo.
reported the connection of blood glucose to dementia earlier in the month in the New England Journal of Medicine. So, not having diabetes is not a reason to continue the sweet treats — an elevated level of glucose can harm your brain over time. Meditation is effective to stop craving cigarettes. According to the National Academy of Sciences, only two weeks of mindfulnessmeditation training reduces cravings for cigarettes, curbing smoking by up to 60 per cent. Another group who simply took relaxation training showed no
reduction in smoking or in craving cigarettes. Researchers in Eugene, Ore., and in Amarillo, Tex., did separate studies and came up with similar results leading researchers to speculate mindfulness meditation may be helpful in treating all kinds of addictions. Bisphenol A (otherwise known as BPA) may cause mental illness. BPA was once common in plastic and tin containers and is now linked with several psychological and behavioural disorders if people were exposed to it early in life. The study pub-
lished in the journal Environmental Research last month measured BPA levels in mothers urine while pregnant and found higher levels contributed to a greater likelihood of anxiety and depression in boys and to hyperactivity and behavioural issues in girls. There it is, some of the breaking mental health news from the summer, and we hope you share it with the people you care about. After all, having a nice, soothing cocoa beverage is not a hard medicine to tolerate!

Report from Royal Inland Hospital The Àrst phase of redevelopment at the hospital is in full swing following a ground-breaking event on Sept 13. With preparation of the site and relocation of underground utility services now underway there is some impact to access and site trafÀc as well as construction noise and dust. We will keep you informed Marg Brown Health Services Administrator as the project moves forward and thank you in advance for your Royal Inland Hospital patience. The memorial trees were removed in August as they could not be relocated. To honour the spirit in which the memorial trees were planted an outdoor space will be created as part of the Clinical Services Building project where those people will be re-memorialized. Our thanks once again to the local school district where woodworking teachers are helping to ensure the trees are put to good use. Last month I had the opportunity to take Minister of Health, Terry Lake, CEO, Dr. Robert Halpenny and Acute Services VP, Susan Brown through the hospital units including 4N, which is currently undergoing minor renovations in order to be opened as an inpatient unit. This unit will contain 20 beds with open bays and a central nursing station. We are hoping to see it open by November and look forward to the additional inpatient capacity these beds will provide. Finally, Áu season is upon us. We encourage all health care providers and those at risk to get your Áu shot and visit www.interiorhealth.ca to learn about other precautions to stay healthy this fall.

DIANE GAIL BROWN (PHILLIPS) In the early morning hours of Friday, September 20th, 2013, Diane passed away peacefully from natural causes at the Marjorie Snowden Willoughby Hospice Home in Kamloops, BC. Diane was 69 years old. Diane was born on June 12, 1944 in Vernon, BC, to Rita Phillips (Ford) and Jack Phillips. Her father worked in the gas industry, so they moved around a lot while she was growing up, but they eventually settled in Kamloops, BC. There she met Charles Alexander Brown and they were married soon after Diane completed high school. Diane and Charlie stayed in the Kamloops area, ﬁnally making their home up at Little Hefﬂey Lake in 1972. They had two children, Dana Andrew Brown and Deborah Leigh Watson. Diane eventually moved to Calgary, AB, to be closer to her grandchildren and to access better medical care. Although Diane and Charlie no longer lived together at that point, they remained close and cared deeply for each other. Diane lived with her daughter, Deb, and her granddaughters, Courtenay and Victoria, and the family moved about until settling again in Kamloops. Diane was able to renew old friendships and make new ones. Although her health was poor for many years, she always seemed to be able to ﬁnd the energy to care for those around her. She always put her family’s needs ﬁrst, and that carried on even when her children were grown. In her later years, Diane lived at Bedford Manor, which she made her home. She took care of people there, just like she had always done for her family. Diane was part of the family at St. George’s Church in Kamloops, and she continued to attend services provided by the church at Bedford Manor. Diane loved doing crafts and made many beautiful pieces. Family members, friends, and foster pets enjoy the afghans she made over the years. Eventually, her vision prevented her from being able to do the ﬁne work she loved, such as sewing and needlework. Diane was a great cook, and even though she didn’t do much cooking for herself in the past few years, her family would always go to her for favourite recipes and cooking tips. Diane loved animals, and she had a very hard time giving up her little dog, Sheela, when she moved to Bedford. Fortunately, a family friend knew of a good adoptive home, and Sheela’s new family brought her to visit Diane from time to time so that they could remain close. Diane will be greatly missed by her family, her friends, and the staff at Bedford Manor. Throughout this challenging time, many people commented over and over that Diane was lucky to have the family and support she had. The fact that they were able to be there for her and each other was only possible because Diane had taught them how to be a family and how to support one another. She has left a lasting legacy of caring and love for her family and friends. Diane is survived by her brother, Donald Phillips of Campbell River, BC; her brother, Darrel Phillips (Helen) of Merritt, BC; her sister, Deena Holden (Bill) of Comox, BC; her son, Dana Brown (Marjory) of Calgary, AB; her daughter, Deb (Chris) of Kamloops, BC; and her grandchildren, Stefan Brown of Kingston, ON, Tyler Brown of Calgary, AB, Courtenay Watson of Kamloops, BC, and Victoria Watson (Carlin) of Kamloops, BC. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, September 26th, at 11 am at St. George’s Church, 308 Royal Avenue, Kamloops, BC. The Celebration will be followed by a tea. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home. Flowers are welcome and can be sent to St. George’s Church. Donations in Diane’s memory can be made to the BC Civil Liberties Association at http://bccla.org/take-action/ donate/. The family would like to thank the staff at Bedford Manor, who made her time there so wonderful; the staff at the Kamloops Hospice, who made her last days as easy as possible for both Diane and her loved ones; and all of the friends and family who were there for Diane and her family throughout the weeks preceding her death.
CHRIS ROBERTSON September 13, 1955 - September 18, 2013 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Chris Robertson on Sept 18, 2013. Chris left this world peacefully, leaving a long but courageous battle with cancer behind him.

Chris leaves behind his mother Evelyn, his brothers, Dana (Georgina), Garry (Esther) and Jeff (Carrie Anne) and many nieces and nephews. Chris was predeceased by his father Les in 1996 Chris was born and raised in Kamloops and made friends with many people throughout his life. Chris’s work career included the City of Kamloops, C.N.R, Operating Engineers, Clark Freightways, Darlen Transport, Owner Operator of 3R Delivery, and Northern Trailer. Our Family would like to thank the Kamloops Hospice for their excellent care and compassion. We also would like to thank Dr. Dong for his care and understanding through this difﬁcult time.

FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
ISABELLA (FLO) SCHEIRER May 1, 1934 - September 15, 2013 Flo passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side. She is survived by daughters Gail (Derek), Leila, Rita (Annette), grandchildren Lindsay and Brock, canine grandbabies Jasper, Pebbles, Cleo, sisters Jeannie (Ray) and Edith (Jed), and former son-in-laws Brian English and Larry Richet. She was predeceased by her husband Paul of 44 years, sisters Lily and Ellie, and brothers Jack and Willie. Flo was born in Northern Ireland. The family moved to Steveston, B.C. in 1948. In 1954, she married Paul and over the years they lived in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Vernon, and Agassiz. While in Richmond she worked at B.C. Packers, Twin Hollies Farm, the cannery and WCB. They moved to Kamloops in 1993 and soon after operated Falcon Corner Store. Flo enjoyed family gatherings, bowling, bingo, square dancing and gardening. A Celebration of Flo’s life will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. in the Schoening Funeral Chapel, 513 Seymour Street. In lieu of Áowers donations in honour of Flo’s life may be made to the SPCA.
One Final Gift Scatter me not to restless winds, Nor toss my ashes to the sea. Remember now those years gone by When loving gifts I gave to thee. Remember now the happy times The family ties we shared. Don’t leave my resting place unmarked As though you never cared. Deny me not one final gift For all who come to see A single lasting proof that says I loved... and you loved me.
Her Journey’s Just Begun Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, From the sorrows and the tears, In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away. And think of her as living, In the hearts of those she touched, For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much. E. Brenneman

Kamloops Food Policy Council opens the GAP The Kamloops Food Policy Council has officially launched its Gleaning Abundance Program (GAP) — a program aimed at making the most of food in Kamloops. GAP has begun recruiting volunteers at local farmers’ markets and through social media, and hopes to have 200 volunteers and 200 households enlisted by October. The program will bring insured volunteer pickers to gleaning sights free of charge. GAP pickers will then split the harvest — one third for themselves, one third for food agencies and one third for enlisted homeowners. If the pickers or owners choose not to keep their portion of the harvest, it will then go to food-security agencies. The goal of GAP is to ensure good, healthy food does not go to waste and instead becomes a powerful resource in the community.
LOCAL NEWS GAP recently received a three-year grant from Interior Health’s Community Food Action Initiative to co-ordinate IHAwide food security, food gleaning and foor recovery, beginning in Kamloops. Next year, the program is slated to expand to cover more IHA communities. During the threeyear grant period, GAP hopes to collaborate with other food-security groups in Kamloops as well as local First Nations to create social enterprise projects. These projects will create training and jobs through the production of gleaned-food by-products and meal services for people in need.

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is on object of beauty & strength & I stand & watch her, until at length, she is only a speck of white cloud just wheret he seas & sky meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side exclaims, “There, she’s gone!” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as she was when she left my side & just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone, there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout “There she comes!”. Author Unknown

HOME-PLATE SHOWDOWN So much for a friendly alumni game. This play at the plate left both catcher and baserunner in a cloud of dust during a TRU WolfPack baseball alumni game at Norbrock Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 21. The runner was safe. For the latest WolfPack news, including the skinny on a historic victory for the TRU hockey squad, turn to page A30. Allen Douglas/KTW
Storm take centre stage, with Blazers in PG By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
HE KAMLOOPS STORM are the hottest hockey team in the Tournament Capital and they play a pair of home games this weekend. “We’ve played really well,” said Barry Dewar, owner and general manager of the River City’s Kootenay
International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) franchise. “I think we’re going to have a really strong team and I think the way Eddie [Patterson] coaches, it will be a big plus for us to have that maturity behind the bench. He’s just one of those guys who brings the best out in kids.” At 5-0, the Storm lead the KIJHL heading into games against the North Okanagan
On The Go?
Knights on Friday, Sept. 27, and the Golden Rockets on Saturday, Sept. 28. Game time both nights is 7 p.m. at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre. Patterson, the club’s head coach, said before the season his team will likely be led by a strong crop of forwards. He’s been right so far. Twelve of Kamloops’ forwards have reached the
scoresheet after five games. Bobby Kashuba and Luke Gordon have led the way with nine points apiece. Brock Balson is right behind them with eight points and Josh Rasmussen has seven. Kashuba leads the team with five goals. Injuries to two key defencemen — Stefan Wood and Jason Anderson — have left Kamloops thin on the
blue line, forcing forwards into action on the back end. Kyle Michalovsky and Ben Giesbrecht have emerged as the Storm’s best options between the pipes. Giesbrecht is 3-0, with a 1.78 goals against average and a .938 save percentage. Michalovsky — 2-0, with a 3.55 GAA and .913 save percentage — would likely have stolen time away
from Giesbrecht, but he missed several games after being called up by the junior A Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Dewar credits Patterson for much of the team’s early success, saying “he has the ability to motivate players and he’s got such a good rapport with the kids.” With the Western Hockey League’s Kamloops Blazers out of town this weekend,
hockey fans have a chance to check out junior B action at McArthur. If the Storm win either of the home games and score five goals in doing so, fans receive free Domino’s Pizza. “Hopefully we can give away some pizza on both nights,” Dewar said. “It would be nice to get two big wins here.”

SPORTS Tourism and the Proposed AJAX Mine: Undermining the true vision for Kamloops? SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 29 2:00 PM
Alumni (“CLOCKTOWER”) THEATRE Thompson Rivers University Kamloops
Hundreds of brave human beings will put their bodies on the line in the Spartan Races, which will be held at Sun Peaks Resort on Saturday, Sept. 28, and Sunday, Sept. 29. Spartan Races photo
Spartan racers march on Sun Peaks Sun Peaks Resort is expecting about 4,000 people to head up the mountain for the Spartan Races, billed as some of the world’s premier obstacle challenges. The 21-kilometre Spartan Beast Race will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, and is expected to draw athletes from across Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Competitors will dodge spears, leap through fire, jump over water, climb ropes and maneuver around barbed wire. The five-kilometre Spartan Sprint Race will be held on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Racers start heats every half hour from 8 a.m. to noon both days, with the most competitive groups running in the earlier heats. There will be a Spartan Kids Race on Sunday for children ages five to 10. That gets underway at noon. It costs $10 per child to enter and all proceeds go to charity. Spartan Races recently partnered with NBC Sports Group to chronicle the stories of some of the people who compete in the events. NBC will air a 90-minute TV special featuring the Spartan World Championships, which were held on Sept. 21 and Sept. 22 in Vermont.

EVERYONE WELCOME! ADMISSION IS FREE! The City of Kamloops has invested heavily in both recreation and sport infrastructure, in the name of the City’s Tournament Capital Program. The vision for the Tournament Capital Centre (TCC) alone, was to attract high level athletes to Kamloops and host sporting events, in an effort to capitalize on the burgeoning growth of sport tourism; provincially, nationally and internationally. The vision is clearly being realized, as Kamloops has hosted elite events such as the World Masters Indoor Games, repeated training camps for the BC Lions, the Canadian Road Cycling Championships, and numerous other sporting events that have contributed to the City’s estimated $11 million dollars in sport tourism revenue, in recent years. The vision and outcome further contribute to Kamloops’ identity as a place that attracts and supports people seeking an active and healthy lifestyle. Again, the City is further poised to benefit from population trends that show, that people seek such places to live based on lifestyle preferences afforded by economic, social and environmental quality. In essence, Kamloops is a small city that continues to position itself as an ideal place to live, to maintain a high quality of life. The question of the day, is whether the proposed AJAX mine is compatible or in conflict with a vision, established years ago for what Kamloops may become; will the proposed mine ‘undermine’ what many Kamloops residents view, as an ideal place to live? The purpose of the presentation is to add to the current debate about Kamloops’ future.

For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage #1 spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONFor 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC I suffered for years with sciatica. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help #1 many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all.

WolfPack hockey team starts season with a bang The TRU WolfPack hockey team made history on the weekend, becoming the first B.C.-based club to win the SAIT Icebreaker in Calgary. â€œI am really optimistic about what sort of team we are going to have,â€? said Don Schulz, the WolfPackâ€™s head coach. â€œThe trials and tribulations of my first two years here seem so far away when I look at the prospects that we have on this team and how we played this weekend.

University Kermodes 1-0 in Squamish. With five wins, one tie and no losses, the Pack sit atop the PacWest standings, four points clear of Quest. On the menâ€™s side, TRU lost 3-0 to hometown Langara on Sunday. The WolfPack cruised to a 3-0 win over Quest in Squamish on Saturday. The Pack men are tied with UBC atop the PacWest standings with four wins, one draw and one loss. Both of the Kamloops-based teams are on the road this weekend, playing Capilano in North Vancouver on Saturday,
Sept. 28, and Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Running with Wolves The TRU WolfPack cross-country squad is attending a meet this weekend in Kelowna hosted by the UBC Okanagan Heat. Runners will be tuning up for the Pacific Western Athletic Association championships, held in Abbotsford on Oct. 26. The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association championships are slated for Nov. 9 in Toronto. TRUâ€™s Connor McKay and Ryan
Pidhirniak placed second and third overall, respectively, in a 10-kilometre Dirty Feet trail-running race at Kenna Cartwright Park on Sunday, Sept. 22. In the womenâ€™s 10-kilometre race, WolfPack assistant coach Amelia Vos was first overall in her age group and Sharon Munk, another TRU assistant coach, was sixth overall and first in her age group. The menâ€™s five kilometre race was won by TRUâ€™s Conlan Sprickerhoff. Teammate Isreal Mesfin was second overall and first in his age group. Tanner Gainer, a for-
mer WolfPack baseball player now running cross country, was third overall. Faryn Brown was fourth overall and first in her age group in the womenâ€™s five kilometre. She finished just ahead of teammates Alesha Fisher and Christa Miller.
The Pack is back Canada West volleyball returns to Kamloops tonight (Sept. 26). The TRU WolfPack menâ€™s volleyball team is hosting an exhibition match against the UBC Okanagan Heat of Kelowna at the Tournament Capital Centre.
Penton: Rookie pitcher Fernandez turned heads with Marlins, is one to watch in future
F YOUâ€™RE A BASEBALL player looking for anonymity, having a name such as Jose Fernandez is a good start. Itâ€™s difficult to keep the Joses (Bautista, Cabrera, Constanza, Lopez, Jiminez, Morales, Reyes) and the Fernandezes and Hernandezes (Felix, Livan, Ramon, Jose) straight as it is, but to put two of them together in one name is begging to be invited to the Spanish equivalent of the English convention of people named Bill Smith. And, to top it off, this Jose Fernandez plays for the Miami Marlins, whose stadium, itâ€™s
BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW rumoured, is where Floridians go if they want some peace and quiet. But Jose Fernandez, a rookie pitcher for the Marlins, just may be
the best hurler in MLB this season. Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and Max Scherzer of the Tigers will likely win the Cy Young awards for pitching prowess, but hereâ€™s a case for Fernandez. A 20-year-old Cuban, Fernandez has a record of 12-6 on a Marlins team that is close to 40 games below .500. To protect the arm of their pitching prize, Marlinsâ€™ brass shut him down in mid-September after 170 innings. At home, he was 9-0 with an earned-run-average of 1.19. He didnâ€™t allow a run in
three of his last five starts (usually lasting seven innings), his only other starts a 2-1 loss to Atlanta Braves, owners of the best record in baseball, and a 5-2 victory over
the same Braves. He has more strikeouts per nine innings than any other starter in the National League.

‘It’s all about singing’ Sabrina Weeks has tried other jobs, but they weren’t for her . . . Now, the Kamloops singer is preparing for a big local show
By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
ABRINA WEEKS ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SINGER. Belting them out in kindergarten class, she had decided it was the only way to spend adulthood. In fact, Weeks said, singing is the only job she’s ever kept. “I tried this one,” she said. “Meh. And, maybe this one. Nah. This one? Nope.
“It’s all about singing.” It’s a career that almost ended, she said, when she was the band Lava Kazu years ago and was working with someone at a studio. They wanted her to make a recording while sounding like a famous singer. The names aren’t important, Weeks said, but the lesson is. She listened to recordings of the other singer and tried to imitate her. “The experience was so detrimental I almost quit singing for-
ever,” she said. “But, it made me the singer I am today, so I guess I owe that guy my thanks.” Now, flanked by partner Mike Hilliard, his brother Ed, Terry Strudwick and Bill White, Sabrina Weeks and Swing Cat Bounce has been named Best New Artist at the prestigious Maple Blues Awards, an accolade that helped open up Eastern Canada for tours. It’s led to Weeks being part of an Etta James tribute at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, a club CBC
Radio has called one of the best live venues in the country and was likened in one magazine to being the Canadian version of Austin City Limits. But, for now, Weeks and her band are focused on home and all the people who have supported her and the band since they started performing just a few years ago. She’s booked the Plaza Hotel’s Blackwell Hall, the best venue in the city for live music in her estimation, and, on Oct. 11, the band will be recording not only music
that will become a live CD, but video to create a DVD. “I want to do a live recording so we can capture what it sounds like at a show, so we can capture Kamloops,” Weeks said. “I’ve always talked about the reciprocity with the audience. We perform and the energy builds and it gets to the audience, who feeds it back to me. “And besides, it all began here and I want the world to know that.” X See WEEKS B4

Pink Ribbon Ball back — and grander than ever
Credit Score and Home Buying Part II
By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
What many prospective borrowers don’t realize is that the pricing of mortgages and other loans is based in part on their credit-worthiness, and a person’s credit score is the established measure for credit-worthiness. People with a lower credit score can ﬁnd themselves paying a higher interest rate, or denied access to certain types of loans. The good news is that by taking a few basic precautions, prospective borrowers can protect their credit report and credit score, and increase their access to better rates and a better choice of mortgage products. Do you understand the difference between your credit report and your credit score? A credit report is a detailed history of how consistently you meet your ﬁnancial obligations and provides a picture of your ﬁnancial health based on your past behaviour. A credit score is an objective summary that translates personal information from your credit report and other sources into a three-digit number representing your overall credit-worthiness.
Josephine Bruno remembers the first Pink Ribbon Ball. “I thought we’d have a chicken and pasta dinner at Colombo Hall, raise a bit of money, send it off and that would be it,” she said. That was in 1996 and, this weekend, Bruno and her nephew, Anthony Salituro, will host the 16th — and final — gala ball that raises money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. By last year, the pair had sent more than $600,000 to the foundation and, this year, with a larger venue and the reality there will be no more, they are confident they’ll be sending a lot of money again. It all started, as most fundraisers do, by a life-altering reality when Bruno was diagnosed with breast cancer. “He [Salituro] saw what I was going through and he wanted to do something,” she said. “He said he wanted to help women look good, feel good, women with cancer who could get dressed up and go out and feel beautiful and raise money for

a good cause.” The event has moved farther west on Lorne Street for its final incarnation, with a sold-out crowd of 600 paying $175 each for a night of food, drinks, entertainment, auction-bidding and fun at Interior Savings Centre on Saturday, Sept. 28. Those familiar with other events Salituro has organized have been asking him what the decorations will be like this time, but the owner of two downtown businesses isn’t about to give up any hints. “We’ve never really had a pink-ribbon theme at the Pink Ribbon Ball,” he told KTW. “So, this year, the Pink Ribbon Ball will be pink and grand. “We’re doing everything

on a grand scale.” Bruno hasn’t let any secrets out yet, either, but she’s watched her nephew and his committee of 12 other volunteers working for months to put on the event. “Anthony always was smart,” she said. “He can visualize and then put his ideas to work. It’s a lot of work and stress, but it’s always wonderful.” Bruno said she’s met “so many beautiful people” and she gets emotional when speaking of some of the women who have attended in the past who she knew were going through radiation and chemotherapy, “but they were dressed up and having a wonderful time.” Salituro said this is the last ball “because it’s just time to end it.”
Both your credit report and score are important. When deciding whether or not to grant a mortgage loan, lenders refer to an applicant’s credit report and score, along with a range of other factors such as income, employment history, and down payment size. Generally, a credit score uses your past credit history to help predict how you might manage your credit in the future. The credit score used most often by Canadian lenders is the FICO score (developed by the Fair Isaac Co.), which is a number between 0 and 900. The higher your score, the more likely you are to be approved for a mortgage and receive favourable rates because the lender considers you to be a better credit risk. Several factors are used by the two credit agencies in Canada (Equifax Canada and TransUnion Canada) to calculate credit scores: • • • • • •
Debt payment history. Amounts owed compared to your current credit limits with lenders. How often you seek new credit. Length of time you have had credit accounts. Type of credit, such as car loans, lines of credit, credit cards, ﬁnance company loans. Recent new credit or cancelled cards
Fortunately, there are a number of steps that consumers can take to keep their credit report and credit score healthy: Pay your debts on time – always meet due dates. Do not ignore unpaid bills. Borrow only the amount you can afford to repay. Numerous inquiries for your credit report can sometimes worsen your score. If someone is seeking a new credit card, furniture and department store loans then their credit score will be adversely affected. However, multiple inquiries within a 30 day period for car or mortgage loans have less effect. Reviewing your own credit ﬁle regularly to stay informed about the details on your ﬁle.

Make scarecrows and win
The Kamloops Farmersâ€™ Market is seeking entries for its 2013 Scarecrow-Making Contest. The contest is open to every school, youth orga-
nization, neighbourhood group, family, individual, business or office group. There is no entry fee, but the submission deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 2. Scarecrows must be
delivered to the 400-block of Victoria Street between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on that date. Be sure to include a contact name and a daytime phone number.
New Residential Construction Guide
Weeks eager to take the stage with her â€˜insanely talentedâ€™ band X From B1
The concert will feature 10 new songs â€” including Still, a torch ballad â€œthat is heart-breaking,â€? she said â€” as well as some of the bandâ€™s older songs and some covers. Etta James will be on the cover list and itâ€™s a sure bet her signature song, At Last, will be performed. Both Weeks and Mike Hilliard have made music their day jobs and, free from not having to meet other nine-to-five requirements, the inspiration has been flowing, Weeks said. â€œMikeâ€™s been writing and writing. And we work well together, too,â€? she said. â€œHe can just sit down and write a song, but Iâ€™m picky with lyrics and agonize over each word.â€? Coming off a summer she said was fantastic, with plenty of travelling and gigs, Weeks said the concert is a way of also reminding Kamloopsians of the talent of the musicians playing behind her. â€œI wanted the world to know how awesome the players really are,â€? she said. â€œEdâ€™s drumming is spectacular. Terry has incredible feel. Bill always plays exactly what is needed for the song to shimmer and Mike, what can I say? â€œHe is the most under-rated yet insanely talented guitar player in Canada. â€œEverything he plays is a masterpiece. â€œI am so, so blessed to have these guys to work with. â€œThey blow my mind every gig.â€? Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door but, with 80 per cent sold already, Weeks doubts there will be any left to sell on Oct. 11. They can be bought at the Plaza Hotel, 405 Victoria St., or online at sabrinaweeks.com.

ISC showing off its new big screen with two ﬂicks It’s movie night at Interior Savings Centre this weekend — and it’s free. The City of Kamloops is showing off its brand-new HD scoreboard with a pair of flicks at ISC on Sunday, Sept. 29. The doors are slated to open at 2 p.m., with the first showing, Epic, at 3 p.m. Intermission will be from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., when the second feature, The Hobbit: An
Unexpected Journey, will begin. Concessions will be open, serving refreshments, and each attendee will receive a free voucher to a Kamloops Blazers home game this season.
Earn your WCT tickets The Smorgasbord Deli has come up with a unique way to support Western Canada Theatre. From now until Oct. 20, Sundays excluded, anyone who
visits the deli between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. will have a chance to win a pair of WCT tickets. What will it take? A performance — specifically, a poem, song or skit. The Smorgasbord Deli is located at 715 Victoria St. WCT’s 2013-2014 season kicked off on Sept. 12 with Dreary and Izzy. The next show, Boeing Boeing, begins on Oct. 10.
Organizers praise city for helping move Ball X From B3
He estimated his time alone, when added up, would probably equal “two solid months” working on the ball. Because it has always had a waitlist — and he knew how he wanted the last one to look — the event was moved to the larger venue, but the Colombo connection continues as its staff will be preparing and serving the meal. Salituro praised the city for stepping in and doing everything it could to help facilitate the move, identifying arts, culture and heritage manager Barb Berger as key to helping him with the change in venue. “It was a blessing to meet her,” he said. “She made it possible.” Every other year, “I’ve been running around checking on everything,”
he said, but, this year, “I’m going to be present in the event. I’m going to greet people and thank people for their support.” And, after the champagne reception, the six-course meal, the silentauction bidding announcements, the dancing, other fundraising moments throughout — and, likely, some speeches since the CEO of the cancer foundation, along with other staffers, will be in attendance — the last Pink Ribbon Ball will wrap up. But, it likely won’t be the last of the fundraising for breast cancer, Salituro said. “It takes a toll, doing this, so I’m taking a break. “But, I know that, boom, something will come up in my head again. “And we’ll have to do it.”

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Make some decisions now before you change your mind again, Sagittarius. Too much information can cloud your judgement, so go with your gut.

NE OF THE THINGS I LIKE BEST ABOUT MY HOUSE IS THE WAY IT LOOKS AT NIGHT. Once all the inside lights are off and the definite shapes of daytime are muted by what I like to think is mostly moonlight, but is actually mostly light pollution from the city outside, everything looks softened. The edges of furniture (like the antique writing desk I bludgeoned my hip on last week) no longer seem so sharp. Dust on the un-Swiffered surfaces disappears into shadows. And the dirty dishes next to the sink in the kitchen seem somehow reduced by at least half. Lately, owing to a series of

Add brown sugar into a non-stick skillet over high heat, stirring for a few minutes until the sugar begins to melt. Add pears and toss gently until about halfway cooked. Remove from heat and set aside until cool. Strain off juice. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Then, using a rubber spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Fold in pears.

Dipping into the kitchen’s canister of bench flour, I have just enough without having to drag the bin from our pantry — an awkward corner closet that was originally meant to hold a broom. Into the batter, I fold the pears. I divide the batter between a new set of square muffin moulds fitted with paper liners. I lick the spatula and set the pan into the preheated oven. In the meanwhile, I don’t do the dishes. I don’t wipe or tidy away things that bother me in the day. And, so, when I pull a stool up to the kitchen island, I lay
my head on my folded arms — which are dusted with flour and lightly spackled with egg and batter — and fall asleep. I nearly let the muffins overbake. But, when I wake to a second oven timer, they’re perfectly done and, in minutes, I have them slipped out of the pan and cooling on a rack “Happy Breakfast from the Muffin Elf,” I write on a blank recipe card, knowing the muffins will be the source of a little confusion.

The life charter of the Charterer
N AN AGE OF fast moral decline, we need to take a hard look at moral issues of our day and ask, “Where do we stand and what should we be doing?” More so, the question could be popped up as: “Exactly what does the Bible say on the issue?” The Pro-Life Society of Kamloops banner that has been displayed on a street for a few days a years in support of right to life bore a heart-searching message again this month. If we were to simplify the question of what has happened to morality in our culture, from a human perspective we could say there are two major factors that have contributed to moral decline in Western culture: 1)Secular humanism. 2) The evolutionary theory.
NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH Man, at his best, is a fallen creature, captive to moral depravity and sin. But, from a human perspective, the above two factors have affected us more than we may ever know. The right-to-life subject is not merely an abortion issue. It is the issue affecting everything in our culture. Our nation’s moral decline is definitely related to our culture’s viewpoint about life. Speaking of Darwin’s theory of evolution, a leading
humanist magazine stated a few years ago: “Darwin’s discovery of the principle of evolution sounded the death knell of religious and moral values. “It removed the ground from under the feet of traditional and moral religion.” To address the issue of right-to-life biblically, we need to look at three things: We must understand God created human life (Gen.2:7; Job 31:15; 33:4). Human life in the Bible is not defined by functions of human body. The body without the spirit is dead (James 2:26). The principle of human life that makes it sacred is totally and radically different from all animal and plant life. Christians have respect for all kinds of life.
Smell ‘n’ tell 1
Smell rotten eggs? It could be natural gas.
But, there is only one life we hold as sacred, namely human life, created in the image of God and after His likeness. We must understand God’s control over human life (Job 34:1415). The secular humanists and all who oppose the sanctity of human life violently oppose the idea that God is sovereign over human life. Every believer who truly understands the issue of right-to-life argues it from the standpoint of God’s sovereignty over human life. God, not man, is in control of life and death. The Christian believes the human life is totally under the control of God. It is not our part to “play God” and take life or hasten death. We must understand God’s concern for human life (Job 10:8-
12; Matthew 6:25-26). The fact God is concerned about human life should make us concerned about rightto-life. Man is of more value to Him than animals or things (we might add that babies in wombs are more valuable than whales trapped in ice). We must, therefore, face the moral issue of murder. The rampant rise in murder alone is enough to prove our society’s abandonment of sanctity of life has come full circle. Murder has always been wrong — it is God’s holy and righteous standard, yet we continue to refuse to do what God has said. We must face the moral issue of abortion (Exodus 21:22,23). The abortion issue is not simply an issue of killing babies in the womb, as horrible and detestable as that is.

The issue does not stop there. The medical atrocities of Nazi Germany only a generation ago began with the same realization and self-justification, even the same terminologies we hear today regarding issues of abortion and euthanasia. We also must face the moral issue of euthanasia, which carries the misnomer of “mercy killing.” Physical suffering or handicap is never a reason for taking a person’s life (Exodus 4:11; Job 2:4-10; 27:16; 42:12). Abortion was all the foundation that euthanasia advocates needed. Today, we might well be fighting for our lives and lives of everyone who some day might be arbitrarily designated as “unworthy” of living and thus put to death by the state. We must face the

unspeakable moral issue of abuse, including parental abuse and spousal abuse. We not only kill those we don’t want in our society — we beat up the ones who live. The Bible is clear that any kind of abuse is a violation of sanctity of human life. It emphatically declares life begins at the very moment of conception. This has always been the historic Christian position and it is being compromised only by way of cultural pressure that is being exerted today. To believe otherwise is to champion a lost cause — medically as well as theologically.
