City needs to recoup $1 million in revenue By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Slow than projected growth, reduced returns from investments and lower property assessments for some of the city’s major ratepayers will leave the city with about $1 million in revenue to make up as it prepares the 2014 budget. At a public-input session in the McArthur Island Sports Lounge on Monday, Nov. 4, Kamloops’ finance director Sally Edwards said the city is facing a few extra challenges this coming year. While the budget would typically include about $1.2-million in new taxation from growth, Edwards said it’s looking like it will only account for around $900,000. The city’s investments are down about $400,000 and transit
revenues were also lower than projected for 2013. Edwards said the closure of the A line at the Domtar pulp mill will also mean a lower assessment for the pulp mill — and fewer tax dollars flowing into city hall. It’s not the only property in the city asking to have its assessment lowered this year. Edwards said $1 million is a challenge to make up, but noted there may be cuts to city expenses that can offset the revenue losses without service cuts. “We’re just making everybody aware that these are the challenges going into ’14,” she said.
If you want something done right . . . Their water-park plan did not make city council’s to-do list in 2013, but a group of Westsyde
residents think they have found a new way to get the project off the ground. Robert Kelly of the Westsyde Community Development Society was at the city’s second 2014 budget-consultation meeting to pitch a new plan and price tag for the water park his group wants to build in Westsyde Centennial Park. “It’s the most talked about thing,” Kelly said. “There are a lot of young families in Westsyde.” When council last looked at the plan while considering items for the 2013 supplemental budget, the water park was expected to cost about $600,000, which the city would spread over two years. Councillors opted to not fund the project, but did agree to set aside $20,000 per year for the work.
Since then, Kelly said, the society has managed to get the price of the park down to $347,000. To sweeten the pot, the society is offering to complete the first phase of the project — a heated washroom and changing area — in the spring of 2014. “We have a contractor lined up, our own contractor who’s willing to work with us, and we think we can get some economies of scale,” Kelly said. He said the project would cost about $100,000. The society has $25,000 in the bank and would also ask the city to cover some costs for supplies. It is also expecting some materials needed for the project to come via donations. While the project would still cost the city money, Kelly said it will be less than if the city tried to build the water park itself.
“The city has to go through a rigorous tendering process and that involves necessarily unions and rules and regulations and policies,” he said. “If we do it ourselves, we don’t necessarily have to follow all those requirements.” Once phase one is complete, Kelly said the society might encourage donors to chip in to help finish the water park. The building will also be open to Westsyders using the park’s ice rink in the winter. Kamloops city council will consider public comments from the two public-input meetings (the first was held on Oct. 29 at Interior Savings Centre) on Nov. 26. A third public-input meeting will be held at ISC on Feb. 25, 2014, with city council scheduled to set the 2014 tax rate on April 8, 2014.

Peter Mueller is $20-million richer after winning the Oct. 30 Lotto 6/49 jackpot. The Revelstoke resident will think about what he plans to do while relaxing on a beach in Mexico. Dave Eagles/KTW
MUELLER HAS 20-MILLION REASONS TO SMILE By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
As B.C. Lottery Corporation staff rose to their feet for an ovation, Peter Mueller gave the giant novelty cheque that had just been passed his way a once-over. As he took in the staggering figure printed on the cheque, a grin spread over his face. “Oh,” he said. “Nice.” Make that $20 million of nice. Mueller, a 68 year-old retiree from Revelstoke, won $20,223,182.30 in the Oct. 30 Lotto 6/49 draw after all six numbers on his quick-pick ticket matched those drawn. He accepted his cheques, both the big one to keep and the small one to cash, in Kamloops on Friday, Nov. 1. Mueller told reporters he was eager to head back home to his bank to get started on life as a multimillionaire. But, once the money is in his account, he is not sure what the future holds. “I have to think about it for a couple days,” he said. “I’m going to go to Mexico and sit on a beach
and think about it.” Mueller, who has lived in Revelstoke for 35 years, said he was driving to Vernon the day he discovered his big win. “I heard in the morning on the news that someone in Revelstoke won,” he said. “So, all the way down to Vernon, I figured maybe it’s me — and it was.” When the clerk at the Village Green mall checked the ticket, neither she nor Mueller could quite believe what was happening. “I was just shocked,” he said. “It’s something — you think it never happens to you.” Mueller said he has been a longtime lotto player and, while he’s had a few small wins in the past, they can’t quite compare to taking home the whole pot. “I’ve got it half back now, all the money I put in,” he joked. The last multi-million dollar Lotto 6/49 jackpot win in B.C. was in August, when a Burnaby resident took home $3.2 million. Merritt’s Mitchell Shuter also racked up a big win in 2013, taking home just over $11 million in February.

Tentative agreement reached at university On Wednesday, Nov. 6, faculty at Thompson Rivers University (TRUFA) will learn the details of a tentative agreement reached between the union and institution. The two-year agreement is retroactive to April 2012 and means bargaining could begin again early next year, but TRUFA president Jason Brown hopes this doesn’t occur, noting there are many other issues to be dealt with at the university first.
Brown said he would not comment on the agreement and would wait until the faculty had a chance to discuss it. Highlights were emailed to faculty this week. Brown noted the two-year
deal is in line with other contracts being negotiated with the public sector. A press release from the university said the agreement is “consistent with the provincial co-operative mandate and settlements within the B.C. post-secondary and public sectors.” If the 819 TRUFA members vote in favour of the deal, it will then go to the Thompson Rivers University board of governors for approval.

Kamloops poppy campaign ﬂowering By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The poppy trail is flowering well in Kamloops as Remembrance Day nears. “It’s going very well,” said Dave Warriner of the annual poppy campaign. “In comparison to other years, everything is going relatively the same as it has in years past,” said Warriner, first vice-president of Branch 52 (Kamloops) of the Royal Canadian Legion. “The community is coming through and the support is out there from the people.” Warriner said it’s tough to miss the campaign in the Tournament Capital. “The city has been blanketed for the most part,” he said. “There are tables on a daily basis in Sahali at the mall, at Aberdeen Mall, Walmart, Northills, Target. And there are trays in the majority of businesses throughout Kamloops and area.” Regarding a slight hiccup last month when a dollar-store retailer apparently refused to sell poppies, Warriner said the issue has been resolved. “It’s all been taken care of,” he said. “I think it was a misunderstanding.” Warriner estimated there are as many as 40 volunteers working on this year’s poppy campaign. “Our volunteers are doing a wonderful job,” he said. “And we at the Legion would like to thank everyone for their contributions and donations and their wearing of the poppy.”

ICY START TO THE DAY KTW reader Kim Rempel sent in this photo of a vehicle that become a victim of a very icy Pinantan-Pritchard Road on the morning of Thursday, Oct. 31. Rempel said the road was pure ice, noting maintenance crews did not arrive to sand the stretch until after 9:15 a.m. Ice was also an issue on Heffley Louis Creek Road, the route to Sun Peaks, with the road closed for about an hour as crews applied sand. With the Coquihalla receiving plenty of snow on the weekend, it is definitely time to get into the winter-driving mindset.
“My son Micah wanted to join Student 1st and had heard about it through a friend. I was pretty skeptical that he could make the amount of money that was being claimed, so invited the boy over to ‘sell us’ on the idea. My husband and I were impressed! The boy was confident, made eye contact and had clear answers to our questions. I signed Micah up that night. Within his first week he had a $50 night! He has purchased an iPhone and is paying his monthly bill all on his own. Micah also has submitted an exam and a perfect attendance and received $50 more!

What is your vision for the university? By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Alan Shaver is looking for some answers to one basic question. The president of Thompson Rivers University wants people to tell him how they would guide the university through the next five years if they were sitting in his office. There are guidelines, however — seven priorities taken from a variety of documents used to administer the university. The list includes student engagement, partnerships, professional development, course delivery, learning and teaching innovations, innovative and accessible academic programming and lifelong learning. That question has already had more than 1,700 replies, courtesy of an online survey. A second survey is now available that asks participants to rank the priorities.
Anyone can take part, from students and faculty to alumni and the general public. The surveys are part of a consultation process that will also see open houses offered in Kamloops and at the university’s Williams Lake campus. Input is also being gathered from the strategic-priorities advisory committee, the strategic-priorities planning group and the
4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Mountain Room in the Campus Activity Centre. On his blog, TRU president Alan Shaver suggests the best way to frame input would be to answer one simple question: If you were the president of Thompson Rivers University and had to decide what the university should or should not do in the next five years, what would you choose?

Class-size averages in Kamloops on low end of scale Class sizes in the Kamloops-Thompson school district have firmed up since school began in September. In a report to the board of education on Monday, Nov. 4, assistant superintendent for education Karl deBruijn noted there are 1,467 classes in 43 schools (the report excludes Twin Rivers Education Centre and @ KOOL online and dis-
tance-learning school). Class size averages are: • Kindergarten, 18.1 students; • Grades 1 to 3, 21.3 students; • Grades 4 to 7, 25.9 students; • Grades 8 to 12, 23.1 students. There are no elementary classes with more than 30 students and 19 secondary classes that
exceed that number. Of those, 13 are music, band or physicaleducation classes. The others are in courses with limited sections and availability. They include one in choral music at Beattie School of the Arts, with 36 students; five at Brock Middle School in music/choir and sports academies, with class size ranging from 32
to 39; five at NorKam secondary in various academic courses, including Japanese and International Baccalaureate chemistry, with sizes of 31 or 32 students; five at Sa-Hal secondary, all but one in
physical education and all with 31 or 32 students; two at South Kamloops in music/band and physical education, with 37 and 31 students; and one at Westsyde secondary with 35 in instrumental music.

Help the hospital and the rest of us — get a ﬂu shot
GOT MY INFLUENZA SHOT this week, paid for out of pocket since I don’t qualify as part of any of the higher-risk groups provided with free immunization. A reminder to take this simple health precaution came in October when a labour arbitrator ruled it is a reasonable employment requirement for health-care workers to either get the current immunization or wear masks in patient-care areas. Quiet advocacy by provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall has paid off. Staff, doctors, outside contractors and visitors will have to put patients first. Health-care unions pressed a grievance on behalf of members who insist they have a right to refuse immunization and increase exposure to patients. They have apparently run up the white flag. “We will be telling our members to comply with the new policy or risk being fired,” said an overly dramatic Val Avery, president of the Health Sciences Association (HSA). HSA lawyers led the grievance, supported by the Hospital Employees’ Union and the B.C. Nurses’ Union (BCNU). Avery said the union will continue to urge its members to take advantage of on-site flu-shot clinics. That’s right, like most provincial employees, they all get immunization that is not only free, but administered at work. Kendall announced the regulation last year after finding that 40 per cent of employees in long-term care facilities were not getting the current
TOM FLETCHER Our Man In
VICTORIA influenza vaccine and that the rate of immunization was declining. Their objections make no sense. Aside from the self-serving “rights” argument, they complain the annual flu vaccine isn’t effective enough. The formula is developed by an international effort to track the dominant strains that emerge as winter rolls around the world. Kendall says a poor match results in about 40 per cent immunity and a good match reaches 90 per cent. At the risk of stating the obvious, he notes that even 40 per cent is better than nothing. After two weeks of expert testimony, arbitrator Robert Diebolt, a retired UBC law professor, wrote as follows: “It is indisputable that influenza can be a serious, even fatal, disease. Immunization also indisputably provides a measure of protection to health-care workers and I have found that their immunization reduces influenza transmission to patients. “I have also concluded that there is a real and serious patient-safety
issue and the policy is a helpful program to reduce patient risk.” The B.C. Centre for Disease Control calculates that if all healthcare workers would get immunized, the risk to patients would be reduced nearly 50 per cent. The Ministry of Health warns: “You can spread influenza for 24 hours before you have any symptoms.” What would cause educated health-care workers to defy common sense? A hint is provided by professional union promoter and publicist Bill Tieleman, who rails about the decision on his blog. This regulation is inspired by big, bad U.S. health-care corporations that would rather impose immunization than pay for sick days, Tieleman asserts. Ah, so an infected healthcare employee should wander the wards until symptoms emerge, then go home for a few days of paid rest. What a perfectly stupid idea. Last week, BCNU president Debra McPherson was warning about “chaos” at the new Surrey Memorial emergency ward, her latest of a career of media protests. The big new facility is already overflowing and more beds and more staff are needed — stat! Perhaps if better preventive measures were taken by nurses, doctors and other staff, this chronic “chaos” would be reduced and these unions would have more credibility.

A return to standard time may not officially mean winter has begun but, in Kamloops, the time change perfectly coincided with the first snowfall of the season. Something about the turning of the calendar and saying so long to Halloween seems to inspire Mother Nature to send us a message: “Here comes winter, folks.” As if on cue, a weekend snowfall warning was issued for the Coquihalla Highway, while Kamloops also received some of the white stuff. That means if you plan on travelling to the Coast, you better have your snow tires on as it’s mandatory for mountain highways in this province. Not to mention that now that the calendar has changed, it’s only a matter of days until snow becomes a regular fixture in our daily weather forecasts. So, beat the rush and get to your friendly, neighbourhood tire store and make the change before, well, your neighbour does. And if you haven’t brought in your hoses, raked up the leaves, covered up the air conditioner, blown out the sprinkler system and brought in the potted plants, well, it might be later than you think. Anyone who has attempted to gather garden waste, especially leaves, after a significant snowfall knows very well it’s better to be earlier than later. Yes, winter, and all the good stuff like alpine skiing and snowshoeing and cross-country skiing will be here before you know it. But, consider this a wake-up call that it’s likely later than you think and there remains plenty to do before the real fun begins.

Editor: I have been reading with great interest the stories in Kamloops This Week about financial issues with the Metis Association and the White Buffalo Society. I do have one question about this whole mess with the accounting issues: What were the boards of directors doing during this time and why were they paid such high honorariums? Was it for travel expenses to attend meetings? We do have telephones and Skype and Go To Meeting technology so people can collaborate from
different cities. They do not have to travel each time to Kamloops or elsewhere to have a quorum. What most troubles me is the fact a board of directors has a fiduciary duty to protect the funds of the organization. These are not for-profit businesses’ these are non-profit organizations. This was our money. Each director is personally, legally responsible for any wrongdoing at the societies. It doesn’t matter whether the financial manager met with them
as they oversaw the organization. So, the boards of directors got paid for attending meetings that could have been held online or over the phone. They were paid bonuses for some reason and the Ministry of Children and Family Development doubts the money they received actually went to their intended targets. Does anyone else think this might fall on the laps of board members? Tracy Lodge Kamloops
Kamloops needs dangerous-goods route Editor: I read with amazement the plan to upgrade and beautify the Tranquille Road corridor from the airport toward the city. On what planet do these councillors live? Have they not read their own requisitioned studies? When the calamity hits and a large number of people are hurt or killed as collateral damage from the collision of a tanker or two, will they go happy because they died on a beautiful road? Residents of Barnhartvale can also get relief from their grief over losing a child on Todd Road from the knowledge that new arrivals to Kamloops saw only this wonderful
street leading into the city. Where are the priorities? I suspect most on the North Shore would rather see the money proposed for the first phase of the beautification spent on making Todd Road safe for children. It’s a no-brainer. For the airport, the only solution is a new dangerous-goods route, which would also be a through-way to the airport. With reduced traffic on Tranquille, roads would be safer for pedestrians and cyclists. I heard, but didn’t read, that the city was proposing “evaporation swales” as part of the upgrades. Are they kidding?
They built those in the subdivisions in Brocklehurst in the 1960s and they were an unmitigated disaster. Most were filled in by residents who feared a child would drown in one and the remainder get regularly vacuumed of water by the city for the same reason! We recently read that the city pays obscene salaries to “get the best people available.” Given the recent recommendations, maybe we should aim a little lower for the input couldn’t be much worse. Peter Oswell Kamloops
Past time to abolish the joke that is the Senate Editor: I am a longtime Conservative supporter. I don’t know what involvement Prime Minister Stephen Harper has in this drawn-out Senate scandal, but it really doesn’t matter as it is going to cost the taxpayer in the end.
I just think it is proving to us taxpayers once again it is time to abolish the Senate. If Harper wishes to gain votes in the next election, he would do just that. Every government elected pads the Senate in its favour. It’s a joke.
Do governing parties really think the taxpayer is that stupid? We laugh at the Senate. We do not praise the institution. I haven’t talked to one person who supports the Senate. The money saved could be better spent on
our medical system or paying down our debt — things that benefit all taxpayers and future taxpayers. I urge all Canadians to contact their MPs and let their feelings be known. Violet Maartman Kamloops
Ghoulish act on Halloween Editor: Apparently, it’s not a wise idea to get added to the public list of decorated Halloween houses. At least $200 worth of Halloween decorations was stolen from 1321 Ottawa Place in North Kamloops. We have been decorating our house for eight years and have never had an issue until this year. We have locks on our gates and thieves jumped our fence and stole four large items. I would like to thank them for taking the “Happy” out of Halloween. Ann Bulloch Kamloops
Keep an eye on empty words Editor: Reporters and photographers at KTW should be commended for their difficult assignments. I use the word “difficult” because of the answers received when interviewing politicians like local MP Cathy McLeod. Her answer to the question regarding Deb Canada and funding to her agencies was met by the words, “We will keep an eye on it.” This is typical of the non-information answers we get from politicians.

TRU’s trades program gets ‘just-in-time’ money By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
AN APPLE, OR 20, A DAY . . . Shalina Manhas from Nature’s Fare greeted Kamloops Health Fair attendees with an apple. The weekend event at the Kamloops Convention Centre attracted those interested in teaching how to get and stay healthy and those wishing to remain so. More photos are online at kamloopsthisweek.com under the “Community” tab. Allen Douglas/KTW
Calling it “just-in-time” money, Lindsay Langill said $381,000 Thompson Rivers University is receiving from the provincial government will not only help TRU’s trades program, but also help fill some of the pressing vacancies in trades employment. Langill, the university’s dean of trades and technology, said the money will go to professional cook one, parts person and trowel trades-mason programs and will add about 96 new positions for the 2013-2014 school year. The positions will go to students in what used to be classified as the preapprenticeship program — those who want to study trades, but are not registered as apprentices with employers. Langill said this could involve young people curious about a trade or someone transitioning from another career — or no career — into trades. This year, the program’s age range stretches from a 17-year-old to someone 59 years of age. Langill and his staff decided on
where the money went. Once decided, they worked with the Ministry of Advanced Dducation to make their case and see the money awarded. The funding is part of a $1.8-million project to add 456 student spaces for the school year at 10 public postsecondary institutions. This is the sixth year the government has provided targeted funding for this type of student education and Langill said TRU has received funding from it before. The parts-person program is one Langill sees growing since the decision was made this month to offer it online. In the past, attendance at the Kamloops campus of the university was required. There are now 20 students taking it, he said — some in the Kootenays, some in Prince Rupert and some on the Coast. “It’s going to be a huge thing for us,” Langill said. Part of the money will also support a trades-discovery program on a pilot basis that will give 36 students the chance to explore trades-career options before moving on in that stream of education.

Sight may be gruesome, but no wildlife laws were broken By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER These remains of a moose were found by Kamloops resident Ashley Martin while hiking north of Batchelor Heights. While the sight was macabre, conservation officials say no greater transgression than perhaps littering was committed. Conservation officials note it is illegal to dump such remains in the garbage and they urge hunters to leave such remains deep in the woods, where people are less likely to come across them and where the remains can be absorbed by the earth. Ashley Martin photo via Twitter
Disposing of a moose head in the Lac du Bois grasslands area north of Kamloops is unethical, but it does not violate any hunting laws, according to Sgt. Andy MacKay of the province’s conservation service office in Kamloops. The remains of the moose were reported by Kamloops resident Ashley Martin when she was walking her dogs in the area in the evening. The remains, with the antlers removed, were left near a walking trail. Martin posted photos and a message on her Twitter feed: “Hey #Kamloops, look what I found. Someone dumped this in the hiking area above Bachelor. Let’s find out who.”
MacKay said it’s likely the remains were thrown away after the rest of the animal was butchered. Remains like those cannot be taken to a landfill or put into the garbage. MacKay said hunters are encouraged to take them “out deep into the bush, no place people will go, and leave them there because it’s just biomass.” The remains were found on Friday, Nov. 1, near a trail frequented by the public. Because the location is within City of Kamloops limits, bylaw officers were called to deal with it. If those who left the remains near the trail can be identified, MacKay said, they could face fines under city bylaws for leaving the remains in a public area.

Affordable housing forum on Nov. 14 By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Tangie Genshorek says the best way to encourage builders to create affordable housing is to show that it works. This is why three developers will be on the agenda for an affordable-housing development forum on Thursday, Nov. 14. Liz Tabott, executive director of New Opportunities for Women Canada, will talk about a 39-unit project it spearheaded in Kelowna, while Stefen Reid of Kamloops will discuss his 150-unit Golden Vista apartment building in North Kamloops.
A third presenter has yet to be confirmed, said Genshorek, the co-ordinator of the Homelessness Action Plan (HAP). This is the second year the forum has been held and, this year, it is more refined and targeted. Representatives from BC Housing will be there and the city is co-sponsoring the event, along with HAP, the Kamloops Housing Board and the United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo. Stephen Bentley, a planner with the city’s development-andengineering department, said incentives now offered to developers of affordable housing will
be discussed and he’ll be looking for other ideas the city could implement that developers would buy into for future projects. Afterwards, participants will be invited to take a bus tour of three of six sites in the city rezoned in 2011 to accommodate affordable housing. The tour will also make stops at Golden Vista and housing units operated by the Elizabeth Fry Society and Interior Community Services. Developers interested in taking part in the forum need to email Bentley at email@example.com or phone 250-828-3567 by Friday, Nov. 8, to register.
Kamloops Airport prepping for upgrades By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
With the runway extended and a new terminal building in place, Kamloops Airport is now looking at the exterior. Today (Nov. 8), a request-for-proposal deadline arrives for installation of street lights from Tranquille Road along Airport Road to the airport’s parking-lot area, as well as for replacing the water lines, said Ed Ratuski, airport-operations manager. An application is also being finished, one that will ask for funding from the federal Airport Capital Assistance Program to do additional work on the runways. Plans are to improve runway lighting to provide greater visibility for pilots, said airport manager Fred Legace. Some deep cracks in the runway also need repair. A right-turn exit lane is also planned to alleviate the bottleneck that occurs when many people arrive in the city. Legace said with a single lane, if someone is waiting to turn left and traffic is heavy on Tranquille, it leads to long waits for motorists leaving the airport. At times, Legace said, that frustration has led to some drivers speeding along the straight stretch of Tranquille heading into the city, so he’s hoping the
new turn lane will reduce the potential for waits and any subsequent rush to drive. Plans are to do runway work at night, which will require some discussion with carriers, Ratuski said. The last flight to Kamloops arrives at midnight, with the first flight leaving at 6 a.m. — and the six hours between the two isn’t enough time to do the work. It’s possible the final flight will be moved back a few hours to provide at least an eight-hour window for construction, Ratuski said. Total cost is about $6.5 million and the federal fund, which has helped pay for other airport improvements, could pay up to 50 per cent. The application has to go to Transport Canada for review and prioritizing with other small-airport requests for money. Legace said the airport is ready for winter and he’s pleased with the new runway friction-recording system, something that will provide information to pilots in seconds about the condition of the runways. Previously, staff would use the relevant equipment on the runways and would have to write out the findings and fax them to the airport’s NavCanada station to relay to pilots. The new system automatically sends the information to NavCanada to send out.

Snow delays search for clues in cold case By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Fifty-three years ago, on July 3, 1960, 21-month-old Edna Bette-Jean Masters went missing in the area of the Red Lake. Police are still hoping to solve the mystery.
A search of the Red Lake area where a toddler disappeared in 1960 has been postponed to next spring due to inclement weather. Members of Kamloops Search and Rescue (KSR) had planned to scour the area near the lake where 21-monthold Edna Bette-Jean Masters disappeared 53 years ago. However, a significant snowfall on the weekend has pushed the search exercise to 2014.
The cold case was resurrected by police earlier this year and KSR members had planned to go over the area, which has seen considerable upheaval from mining and logging operations in the past several decades, in hopes the earth had been churned up enough to reveal any new evidence. Andrew Hobler, KSR manager, said the exercise was also an opportunity for the group to practise skills and keep the case foremost in the public eye.
Edna Bette-Jean went missing in the area of the lake on July 3, 1960. Known details are few: The child was last seen playing outside with other children in the area. She was wearing a green bonnet with a white frill covering her curly blonde hair, an undershirt, a pink short-sleeved T-shirt that likely covered the small oval burn scar on her left arm between her elbow and shoulder, faded pink overalls, white socks and sandals. Police kept the file open until 1963.
Police know a rust-coloured 1959 Chevrolet with “cat eye” or “bat-wing” taillights and Alberta plates was seen in the area with a young couple inside. Mounties are still hoping to receive some information about the car and the couple, even though
the sighting occurred decades ago. Kamloops Search and Rescue had planned to bring in teams from the Shuswap, Logan Lake, Nicola Valley and South Cariboo to help with the search of the area about 50 kilometres northwest of the city.

Brown rink captures inaugural junior Grand Slam By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
T’S ALWAYS nice to have Jennifer Jones in your curling cor-
ner. Corryn Brown’s Kamloops rink — under the mentorship of Jones, a Canadian women’s curling icon — won gold at the first stop on the World Curling Tour’s Grand Slam circuit in Abbotsford on Saturday, Nov. 2. It was the first time a WCT Grand Slam event featured junior
championships, decided in one-draw showdowns on both the boys’ and girls’ sides. “Each of the teams were assigned mentors,” said Brown, who was again joined by fellow 18-year-old Kamloops Curling Club rinkmates Sydney Fraser (lead), Erin Pincott (third) and Samantha Fisher (second). “We were very fortunate to have her because she’s such a high-calibre curler. “I would throw a shot and ask her after, ‘What did you think
about that?’ She’d let me know.” The Brown rink earned a 6-3 victory over the Chilliwackbased Dezaray Hawes quartet. Hawes was mentored by Alison Kreviazuk, who played second on the Rachel Homanskipped Ontario rink that downed Jones’ Manitoba team at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in February. Glenn Howard’s Ontario foursome beat Kevin Martin and Alberta 7-4 to claim the men’s crown on the
weekend, with Homan edging Eve Muirhead of Scotland 7-5 to win the women’s title. Jones, regarded as one of the all-time Canadian greats, was knocked out in the semifinal round. Brown relished the opportunity to pick Jones’ brain and play on one of Canada’s biggest curling stages. “You don’t get too many opportunities to play on arena ice, unless you go to a national or world event, so that was pretty cool to do in the regular season,” said
Brown, whose rink was coached on the weekend by Brian Fisher, Samantha’s father. “And you got to see all your favourite curlers there.” The junior girls’ championship matchup did not get underway until about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Brown stole two in the sixth and final end to secure victory. By then, it was Sunday morning. Each of the teams
competing for junior titles qualified by finishing in the top two at an Abbotsford cashspiel in October. Brown was victorious in that event, too, but the payday was better this time around. “We won $1,000. That’s the most we’ve ever won,” said Brown, a Thompson Rivers University student. “That’s not too shabby for one game.” The cash will be stowed away in the team’s piggy bank, opened only to cover the cost of travel
and accommodation. This weekend, the rink will dip into the fund when it travels to Maple Ridge for another cashspiel. Unfortunately, Jones will not be around to offer any advice. “It was pretty cool to have her there,” Brown said. “We showed her a picture of me, Sydney and Erin with her from when I think we were about nine at the Strauss Canada Cup. “We got another picture with her on the weekend.”

Encouraging destruction By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
They may have called it Making a Good First Impression but, when Jordan Schwab and Patrick Bulas set out to create their print series, they weren’t sure they would be making much of a mark. The steamroller — that was sure to succeed. But, when the pair branched out into gunpowder, a head-on collision of artists — or, memorably, Schwab’s old truck and a wall — results were less certain. “Other than the roller one, we were just happy if something landed on the page, pretty much,” said Schwab. The results of their unorthodox attempts are now on display at the Thompson Rivers University Art
Gallery, located inside Old Main Building. The pair met through a mentorship program through the Mendel Gallery in Saskatoon, Sask., which pairs artists across various disciplines. Bulas, a master printmaker, provided the technical know-how, while Schwab, a graduate of TRU’s fine-arts program “encouraged the destruction.” Schwab said Making a Good First Impression grew out of conversations he and Bulas would have about the technical side of printmaking, which can be highly complex in ways that aren’t visible to the audience. “When I was talking to other printmakers, they were always talking about the process to make something,” he said.

“You almost forgot what the image was supposed to be about,” Schwab said. “So, we started to look at what printmaking was supposed to be about, which was releasing things to the world.” Each piece contains a nod to a facet of printmaking history, from a Japanese-style wave and pickup truck to a print of medieval devils driving steamrollers. As expected, some were more successful than others. The force created by a baking sheet filled with gunpowder was enough to leave a mark — but it also set the paper on fire. A piece dubbed Tower of Terror — made by strapping a plate to bricks and shoving the whole lot off a scaffold, pictured on the previous page — tore through the paper on impact, but also created a cascading series of images that’s among the more successful attempts. As for a print made by driving a pickup into a makeshift wall, Schwab said he’s happy enough that no artists were injured in the attempt. “Because we were actually just running into something — and we were trying for one take, so we weren’t really practising — I was afraid twoby-fours were going to come flying through the window,” he said.

Besides the prints, the show also features an installation documenting printmaking process. Video of the collisions, and there are many, is included.

The Bra Lady
ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
Is Coming to Size You Up
Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in.
Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Chapman is coming to KAMLOOPS ON MONDAY NOV. 18TH to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly. “Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,” Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.”
Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: • Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably? • Does your bust line “bounce” when you walk while wearing your “everyday” bra? • Do you overflow the cup of your bra? • Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? • Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to give you added support? • Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.
Acclaimed ABBA tribute act playing Sagebrush on Nov. 10 By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
“With a bit of rock music, everything is fine, “You’re in the mood for a dance, “And when you get the chance.” Giles Tingey knows what will happen when that chance arrives — people will be up on their feet dancing as they relive their memories of ABBA. The Swedish pop band came together in 1972, became one of the biggest acts in the history of music, topped charts for a decade and performed its last show in 1983. Tingey is one of four performers who make up The ABBA Show — coming to Kamloops for a performance at Sagebrush Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 10 — taking on the role of Benny Andersson. Giselle Bouwer is Frida Lyngstad, Gemma Donnelly is Agnetha Faltskog and James Childs is Bjorn Ulvaeus. Tingey said the show is a full theatrical experience, from the costumes to the harmony to the backup band. It’s one of the many created by the Australian company Showtime Management, which has other shows featuring Michael Jackson, the Bee Gees, Queen and others. While he wasn’t
much of a fan of ABBA, Tingey said once he started with the show and learned the music, “I realized how good it is. “How complicated the music is.” The show, created about two decades ago, is on the road for most of the year, he said, doing about 180 shows
annually and spending another 100 days travelling. After the Canadian tour, it’s headed to South Africa. Tingey said the company tries to bring its shows back to countries every three or four years, augmenting them with new shows, such as the Whitney
Houston tribute now in development. The average audience can run the gammut from nine to 99 years of age, he said, a reflection of the endurance and widespread appeal ABAA songs continue to have. “Waterloo, Fernando, they know them all,” he said.

Stingray impresses wherever it goes
THE CLOCK IS TICKI NG... AT KAMLOOPS DODGE
By Rob Beintema METROLAND MEDIA
NOVEMBER 6 - 9TH
“Is the Stingray available?” a voice piped up at the key station. “No, it’s not,” I muttered to myself with a grin as I wound my way back through the lineup and out of the door, Corvette key clutched firmly in hand. There always seems to be one car in hot demand during the annual test sessions of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) Car of the Year TestFest. It’s the car that testers stand in line for, adding their names to sign-up sheets just to ensure they get a chance to drive it. This year, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe seemed to be an overwhelming favourite for the Miss Popularity crown, not to mention a slew of potential technology kudos, design honours and other possible awards. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh-generation version (or C7 model), a staggeringly handsome and competent culmination of the 60-year evolution that has shaped this American sports car icon since 1953. The new Stingray starts with an all-new aluminum frame that is 45 kilograms (99 pounds) lighter and 57 per cent stiffer, complemented by lightweight materials throughout the car — a carbonfibre hood and roof panels, underbody panels created with carbon-nano composites and Chevrolet’s Sheet-Molded Compound fenders, doors, rear quarter panels and rear hatch panel, all weighing less than previous generation components. Manufacturing techniques and technologies from the Corvette Racing program have blended those elements into an ideal 50/50 weight balance primed to deliver world-class power-to-weight ratios better than the Porsche 911 Carrera or Audi R8. Delivering the other half of that power-to-weight equation is a new 6.2-litre V8 harnessing 455 hp and 460 lb/ft of torque. This is the most powerful standard Corvette engine ever, making about 50 lb/ft more low-end torque than the previous 6.2-litre engine and matching some of the numbers from the bigger 7.0-litre LS7 engine that powered the upscale 2013 Corvette Z06. Stab the start button and the V8 awakes with a growling snarl emanating from the engine and quad exhausts. X See THESE B10

Volvo is involved with research into cordless recharging of electric vehicles.
Volvo is involved in an advanced research project that has studied the possibilities of inductive charging for electric vehicles. The results show that this technology for transferring energy via an electromagnetic field has a promising future. “Inductive charging has great potential,” said Lennart Stegland, vice president of electric propulsion system at Volvo Car Group. “Cordless technology is a comfortable and effective way to conveniently transfer energy. “The study also indicates that it is safe. “There is not yet any common standard for inductive charging. “We will continue our research and evaluate the feasibility of the technology in our hybrid and electric car projects.” Inductive charging uses an electromagnetic field instead of a cord to transfer energy between two objects. An induction coil creates an alternating electromagnetic field from a charging base station. A second induction coil in the portable device picks up power from the electromagnetic field and converts it back into an electrical energy that charges the battery. This technology is common in electrical home appliances such as electrical toothbrushes but is not yet commercially available to charge electric cars. The completed research project, which included inductive charging for cars and buses, was initiated by Flanders’ Drive, the knowledge center of the automotive industry in the Flanders region in Belgium. It featured a consortium of companies, including Volvo Car Group, Bombardier Transportation and the coachbuilder Van Hool. The project was partly funded by the Flemish government. Volvo Cars supplied the car for the inductive charging project: a Volvo C30 Electric with a power output of 89 kW (120 horse power).

Beauty is in the details, from high-definition screens to an available navigation system, optional real carbon-fibre dash treatment and other trim and option choices.
the fence was emblazoned with a few troublesome signs marked “Private Property,” “No Trespassing,” “No Stopping” and other such nonsense. In other words, it was the perfect spot. I parked, jumped out and snapped a few shots with the intent of escaping quickly, but I really had to lower the camera for a while and just stand and admire the sleek angles, curves and bodylines that somehow combined to create beauty, a blend of aerodynamic and aesthetic values. GM designers insist that no single detail has been repeated from previous generations, but the distinctive profile defined by a long dash-to-axle ratio could only be a Corvette. And the rear quarter view, the best angle really, captured the sculpted form perfectly – the sleek angled lines, the greenhouse styled to evoke the canopy of a fighter jet, the radically new rear LED light treatment above the chrome quad exhaust pipes. I wasn’t the only one entranced. Some of the Niagara Falls tourists lining the lookout above me had been distracted from nature’s display, calling down questions and comments, their eyes glued to a bright yellow Corvette Stingray that stood there shining like a splash of sunlit elegance contrasting the muted grey of an autumn day. Falls? What falls? So, to repeat the question at the beginning of the story, is the Stingray available? The answer is yes. The 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe ($52,745), available in three trim levels and a variety of options and performance packages, is arriving at Canadian dealers now but you might expect a six-month wait due to popularity. And the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible ($58,245) will follow sometime early next year.

I must confess I never quite mustered enough speed or space to explore the Stingray’s abilities to the full extent of its manual shifter’s seventh gear (yes, I said seventh gear). The seven-speed manual comes with a throttleblipping, Active Rev Matching system, but an optional six-speed automatic with remote start and paddle-shifters ($1,420) is available for the stick shift challenged. According to GM test results in the U.S., the Corvette will sprint from 0-60 m.p.h. in 3.8 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, achieve 1.03g in cornering grip and come to a complete stop from 60-0 m.p.h. in 107 feet. A few Canadian test numbers that I can throw at you include a surprisingly thrifty fuel economy rating of 12.2/6.9L/100km (city/hwy). Those numbers get a big assist from an Eco mode that shuts off four of the cylinders in the V8 during light cruising conditions. You might not expect an Eco mode in a performance thoroughbred like the Corvette Stingray but it is just one of five performance settings, including Weather, Tour, Sport and Track, available on the cockpit-mounted Driver Mode Selector, allowing drivers to optimize the car for road or track conditions. And turning that rotary knob affects everything from engine and exhaust performance to gauge cluster configurations, throttle sensitivity, steering assist effort, magnetic ride control, traction control and performance traction management, launch control and a long list of other dynamic driving parameters. It all combines for a thrilling and confidence-inspiring driving experience, an experience that overwhelms all the “buts” of the past — the traditionally North American-style sloppy handling traits, clunky shifters, brutal gas mileage, uncomfortable seats and crappy interiors of earlier eras. My love for Corvettes has always been tempered with those historic heartbreaks, but there were no disappointments in the new 2014 Corvette Stingray. The steering is smooth as silk. The shifter snicks effortlessly through the gears. And this new Corvette outperforms all of its ancestors with the assurance and nimble handling of a true sports car. And, not only has the Stingray improved its dynamic performance, it has been refreshed inside and out. A new interior treatment offers genuine carbon fibre and aluminum trim pieces, microsuede trim, hand-wrapped Napa leather upholstery, dual eight-inch configurable driver/infotainment screens, GT touring seats or sport seats, and fit and finish levels comparable to any luxury performer on the market. The aeronautically inspired cockpit features crisp, clear graphic displays on high-def, configurable screens — one on the centre stack, the other behind a smaller, more compact steering wheel. And a colour HUD display complements the two multi-configurable eight-inch display panels. I slid into that elegant interior and set off in search of a suitable photo backdrop for the Stingray, like say, Niagara Falls. Which wasn’t that hard because it was virtually next door to our test site. On an earlier scouting reconnaissance ride, I’d spotted a Maid of the Mist service access track going down into the gorge with a view of the falls. At the top of the laneway, the gate was open but

Oh Great Spirit ... Oh Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the wind Whose breath gives life to the world Hear me I come to you as one of your many children I am small and weak I need your strength and your wisdom May I walk in beauty Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset Make my hands respect the things that you have made And my ears sharp to hear your voice Make me wise, So that I may know the things you have taught your children The lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock Make me strong, Not to be superior to my brothers But to be able to Àght my greatest enemy — myself Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes So that when life fades, as the fading sunset My spirit will come to you without shame. Thomas S. Whitecloud II (1914-1972)
In Loving Memory of
GERALD JONES Nov. 9, 1955 - Nov. 6, 2010
In Loving Memory DONNA JACK 1945 ~ 2010
July 25, 1940 ~ Nov. 4, 2008
On this 5th Anniversary We Remember Everybody loves to be remembered, But if we want to be remembered, we have a duty also to remember. Memory is a powerful thing. Wrongly used it can bring death rather than life. Rightly used it is a form of immortality. It keeps the past alive Those we remember never die. They continue to walk and talk with us, Their inﬂuence is still felt among us. There is nothing stronger or more helpful than a good remembrance. We want you to know that we haven’t forgotten you. We remember you, and your memory most deﬁnitely brings life to us today.
THE BROKEN CHAIN We little knew that day, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide. And although we cannot see you, You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.
Adelis, Davide, Tammy, Matteo, Luca, Stefano, Marco, Sandra, Sacha, & Luca
Love ... Mom, Keith, Darin & Tammy
I don’t know what to do Mom I never thought I’d lose you The amount of tears I’ve cried, Nothing compared to the pain inside I don’t want to say goodbye ... Love you Mom Rob
