Commission does not want merger By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops Heritage Commission will make a plea to keep the arts out of its business when city council meets next week. Commission chairman Andrew Yarmie said the group will make a presentation to council at its April 29 meeting, explaining the value of the heritage commission’s work and why it is resisting a city plan to merge arts and heritage advisory groups into a single cultural commission. “We believe we have enough to do as a heritage commission and there’s enough going on without taking on the mandate of another commission,” he said. Council was scheduled to vote on merging the two committees at its April 8 meeting, but agreed to delay the decision at the heritage group’s request. The parks, recreation and cultural-services department has touted the merger as a solution to member recruitment and quorum issues that have plagued both groups and believes the new committee would attract more members because of its broader mandate. But, Yarmie said, people who sit on the heritage commission don’t do so because of their passion for art, noting the group is already tackling projects that will require many volunteer hours. The commission is hoping it can keep the former Christian Hostel building on West Victoria Street from being sold to a private developer. “We’re trying to find some other non-profit organizations to take it over and then do some fundraising to restore it and make it viable for arts groups,” Yarmie said. “It has some very big rooms in it that could be used for studios or theatre groups. Or it could be converted back into an international hostel if it was cleaned up and everything.” The former federal building used to house the Canadian Mental Health Association’s overnight shelter programs, but that arrangement ended when the association opened Emerald Centre nearby. Yarmie said that the building has significant heritage value and is a rare example of a wooden building from the turn of the 20th century.

Weather helps cool fire scene in region

MARKET PRICE Bev Atkey (right) of Crow Creations has another satisfied customer in Darlene Farquharson. The transaction took place at the opening day of the 2014 Kamloops Farmers’ Market on Saturday, April 19. The market is open Saturdays (8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) in the 200block of St. Paul Street and Wednesdays (8 a.m. to 2 p.m.) in the 400block of Victoria Street through October. Allen Douglas/KTW

Cooler and wetter conditions have slowed the number of grass fires in the region. Kamloops Fire Centre reported no new fires over the Easter long weekend. The fire centre has recorded 38 fires this season, an increase of about 73 per cent from the 10-year average of 22 early-season fires. “We’ve had cooler temperatures and some precipitation, which has helped,” Kamloops Fire Centre spokeswoman Kayla Pepper said. All fires this year have been caused by abandoned fires or careless open burning. “We’re also hoping people are getting the message about caution with opening burning,” Pepper said. Environment Canada is calling for scattered showers on several days this week througout the Southern Interior.

Supreme Court rejects bid for $100K recovery A B.C. Supreme Court judge has dismissed an application by a former chief of the Lower Nicola Indian Band trying to recover $100,000 in legal costs. The dispute originates from 2010, when Don Moses was twice suspended as chief following resolutions of council. Moses went to Federal Court of Canada for a judicial review of council’s decision to suspend him. The two sides settled out of court in June of that year and Moses was reinstated as chief. In a statement of claim, Moses said his legal costs left him $100,000 poorer. However, Justice Sheri Donegan dismissed the claim based on a two-year statute of limitations. She also found Moses’s related claim of unjust enrichment “is a claim that is bound to fail.” The Lower Nicola Indian Band is located immediately west of Merritt.

THE AGONY AND ECSTASY OF THE CARNIVAL The five-day West Coast Amusements carnival thrilled many — and made a few others a bit nervous. The fair stopped at Aberdeen Mall through the Easter long weekend, with large crowds taking in the games, the food and the many rides, including this popular contraption, which sees kids enjoying (or dreading) repeated rising and falling.

New wolf plan to allow more aggressive hunting By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The B.C. Liberal government’s new wolf plan will divide the province into zones and allow more aggressive hunting, including from helicopters, in order to protect endangered mountain caribou. The plan has found wolf populations in B.C. are stable and not at risk. It estimates there are between 5,000 and 12,000 wolves in B.C., including 300 to 600 in the Thompson region. In parts of the Thompson region, a senior official with the Ministry of Environment said, the plan will allow ranchers more leeway to target wolves Government has worked with the forestry and helicopter-skiing

“They’ll consult with local stakeholders.” Among those who will be consulted are ranchers concerned about wolf predation. A spokeswoman from B.C. Cattlemen’s Association said it has not yet been informed of the changes, but does support more aggressive control of wolves.

wolves recreationally. “We can issue permits to livestock owners.” Barriere rancher Ed Salle, a former president of the cattlemen’s association, said ranchers in the Cariboo in particular would welcome more ways, whether by hunting or trapping, to deal with expanding and aggressive wolf populations. But, Salle added, shooting wolves can have consequences. At his operation, he rarely targets wolves because problems can worsen afterward. Experience has taught that a more aggressive pack may move in. “If there’s wolves amongst your livestock and you’re not having an issue, you’re probably better off not to nail them,” Salle said.

Ethier declined to speculate whether wolves may be hunted via helicopter this year or in 1915. “It’s too early for me to comment on that,” he said. “It will depend on the situation around caribou decline. That’s the key driver.” Shuswap conservationist Jim Cooperman said shooting wolves from the sky is a short-term fix. “I’d prefer if they didn’t touch one wolf. They have to look at other ways. They’ve tried many,” he acknowledged. “I don’t think they’ve worked as hard at other avenues.” Cooperman said logging is to blame, with wolves following deer and moose into higher elevation areas opened up by harvesting.

Drivers could on road by summer By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamoopsthisweek.com

Members of a new Kamloops car co-op program could be driving their shared vehicle by this summer. Krystal Kehoe, spokeswoman for the Interior Car Share Co-Operative — In Car for short — said the group is nearly finished its business plan and has submitted its application to incorporate as a non-profit society. The group has also embarked on a community-outreach program with a new Twitter account )@ InCarKamloops) and a weekly booth at the Saturday Kamloops Farmers’ Market at Stuart Wood elementary. “We’re really excited about it,” Kehoe said. “We hope that by having a booth at the farmers’ market and getting out there and talking about it, more people learn about the benefits of car sharing and sign up.” The group also finished a survey earlier this year that saw 45 people

pledge to join the co-op when it’s up and running. More than 200 people filled out the questionnaire. In a car-share program, members jointly own a fleet of vehicles by purchasing a share in the co-op, then book times they would like to get behind the wheel, often through an online site. Members may also pay mileage costs or an hourly charge for using the vehicles, depending on how the program is set up. Kehoe said her group hasn’t decided whether it will start with one or two vehicles for members. “It depends on how many people actually put their membership share in,” she said. “The survey gave us a lot of good information as to what areas people live in and who would be most interested in a car share but, until we actually have those membership shares, it’s kind of up in the air.” Kehoe said membership shares should be for sale in the next two months.

Plaza goes vinyl downtown By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops Heritage Commission isn’t on board, but city planners don’t think passersby will notice when a historic downtown hotel swaps its classic wooden windows for vinyl models. For the past few years, the Plaza Hotel on Victoria Street has requested permission to make the change from mainly wood, with a few aluminum, windows to vinyl designs that mimic the heritage look. The argument is primarily financial. Wood windows are costlier to install and less expensive to maintain. Marvin Kwiatkowski, the city’s director of development and engineering services, estimates vinyl windows will save the Plaza $40,000 in maintenance every three to five years.

OVER 150 DISPLAYS!

However, heritage-commission chairman Andrew Yarmie said his citizen committee recommended to the city that the Plaza stick with wooden windows. “Traditionally, the hotel has had wooden windows,” Yarmie said. “Most of the windows are wood and it’s just one of the principles of heritage that wooden windows are preferred. They have more depth and more character.” However, a recommendation from the committee is just that — an opinion. The city’s development-services department doesn’t have to accept its decisions. In this case, it didn’t. Kwiatkowski said it’s the heritage-revitalization agreement between the hotel and the city that carried the greatest weight in the window debate. “The agreement states it doesn’t have to be replaced with

wood,” he said, as long as the windows mimic the look of heritage options. Kwiatkowski said vinyl or aluminum windows aren’t uncommon on large heritage hotels in B.C. because of the cost reductions and energy savings they provide. “Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver, Cambie Hostel, Best Western Carlton Plaza Nanaimo, Met Hotel in New Westminster, Hume Hotel in Nelson. There’s all sorts out there,” he said. Because about a quarter of the Plaza’s windows are aluminum, not wood, and don’t have any heritage value, Kwiatkowski said the switch to vinyl is an improvement in his eyes. While Yarmie has lost the Plaza battle — city staff’s decision on the matter is final and doesn’t need council approval — Yarmie hopes owners of other heritage buildings stick to wood.

Training Talk RUNNING COMMENTARY with Jo Berry

Five days until the forever line

The 2014 Boston Marathon was yesterday and it was a day of celebration. For those who love running, watching the media coverage reminded us of the meaning behind running. Running is about accomplishment, support, compassion, kindness, perseverance, cheering, community, energy and living. Boston, one year later, is an example of life in action. We put one foot in front of the other and choose life. The action of running teaches you about your body and soul. This past Saturday at the Boogie training in Ashcroft, a new runner said to me: “Jo , I am not in this to win, I am in this to do it.” She’s in her 50s and is turning into a runner before my eyes. It doesn’t matter how far or how fast — she is successful. Events such as last year’s Boston tragedy shake us and remind us how short and sacred life is. We can all choose to make a difference with each other, and with our own personal health. The Boogie mission statement ‘Movement is Change’ encompasses the capacity to change health, reach out to each other, be kinder and share the goal of making a difference. Boogie is in five short sleeps. This year, let’s stand a little closer to each other. Let’s give each other more eye contact, more smiles, and more support. Let us high-five, congratulate and hug at the finish line. Come together, take action and celebrate what life is all about: friends, family and community. Congratulations Kamloops!

DAVE EAGLES Last Tuesday night’s Run Club was somewhat of an achievement for me. Since beginning the walk/run-training program, my effort on run days has been constant, adopting a slow and steady approach. I was cautious, even reluctant at the outset. During our four-minute run/one-minute walk cycle, something clicked. As George Bernard Shaw wrote, the “unconscious self is the real genius.” Without a thought, I lengthened my stride and picked up my gait. It felt so natural. At that moment, my breathing joined forces with my muscles. Admittedly, I experienced what some call a runner’s high — and, it felt great. Here are few other things I learned in Run Club: • Don’t focus on the end result — stay in the moment. • Find different places to run — Kamloops has plenty of awesome ones. • Put your ego aside. When running with the pack, you don’t always have to be at the front. • When stepping outside of your comfort zone, be mindful of the motto: “Live, and let live.” • For the guys — when a group of women shout, “Pick-up!” it’s OK to get excited — it’s Run Club. See you at the CFJC-TV Boogie the Bridge.

3 individuals, 3 levels of fitness, 3 distinct approaches to training for the CFJC-TV Boogie

SUSAN EDGELL We made it! I’m so excited for Boogie day coming up this Sunday. I want to extend a sincere pat on the back to every person coming out to celebrate health, happiness and positive change at the CFJC-TV Boogie the Bridge this Sunday. The hard work, commitment and focus have been much worth it. Overcoming the hurdles and celebrating the wins — Boogie is many things. But, one of the best parts is how it leaves you feeling closer to our community and the people who live here. That is my favourite part. My final thought before race day comes straight from Jo Berry. There is no finish line this Sunday — only a forever line. I challenge you to commit to your improved health and happiness by sticking with running after Boogie comes and goes. I plan to. It’s why we all got started — isn’t it? To live healthier and feel better. This shouldn’t stop on a chosen date and it’s something to think about. I wish everyone the best of luck — on Boogie day and beyond.

NICK CARTER With days to go until the CFJC TV Boogie The Bridge, the final training sessions are underway. Easter Sunday our training was in Westsyde where we ran along the dike. Easter is a time for family to get together, and many did at Run Club with their sons and daughters. I wish I had their energy! Jo Berry brushed us up on the Boogie dance we do across the finish line and the Boogie song for this year is Happy by Pharrell Williams. I think the title describes the contentment we will feel when we cross the Boogie finish line. Easter Sunday I felt like I could run forever. My pace was slow but steady. My previous training session wasn’t great but, as the coaches tell us, sometimes there are good run days and sometimes not. I am proud that I have stuck to it and haven’t missed a training session. Arjun Singh is an inspiration to me. I remember last year when he and I trained together. When you see him now, he is very fit and has lost a lot of weight. The difference between us is that he stuck with it through the whole year. I even remember seeing him run in the dead of winter. Next year though maybe I will be able to catch up to him because I plan to continue Run Club this year.

Privacy commissioner criticizes use of police-information checks By Jeff Nagel

Purpose:

BLACK PRESS jnagel@blackpress.ca

The growing use of police-information checks to vet job applicants is resulting in inappropriate disclosure of highly sensitive information like mental illness and past suicide attempts. B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has released a highly critical report on the practise, urging government to order an immediate halt. Unlike a criminal record check, a police-information check can turn up details about investigations that don’t lead to charges — charges that don’t lead to convictions — and a person’s mental health. “Mental-health information should never be included in an employmentrelated record check,” Denham said. “There is no reason why this information should be disclosed to employers, who would have no right to otherwise ask about this information in the hiring process.” B.C.’s record-check system allows the release of more mental-health and other non-conviction information than the vast majority of other jurisdictions the commissioner’s office studied. Denham said personal information that ends up in police databases is routinely disclosed to employers without any evidence it predicts future criminal behaviour, improves public safety or results in better hiring decisions. “The information in these checks can have a significant and lasting impact on an individual’s privacy, human rights and feelings of dignity and selfworth,” she said. Non-conviction information held by police should be off-limits in employment-related record checks except in cases of prospective employees who work with children and vulnerable adults, Denham recommended. Denham’s office heard public submissions warning that disclosures of mental-health information vastly increases the potential for discrimination and further stigmatizes those afflicted. Some submissions also warned the spectre of inappropriate police disclosure may deter some people from seeking help during a mental-health crisis. The report recounts individual cases of B.C. residents denied a job or unable to volunteer for youth coaching due to unproven police suspicions that never led to charges or past suicide attempts that turned up in their employerrequired police information search. That left some job applicants struggling to explain to prospective bosses why they were once suicidal or hospitalized for depression. Some said they have yet to land a job.

Here are some inconvenient truths for today — Earth Day

E

ARTH DAY 2014 WILL likely go down in B.C. history as less exciting than last year’s event. That was the day when, in the heat of the election campaign, NDP Leader Adrian Dix announced in Kamloops he doesn’t support the expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline to its Burnaby terminal because Vancouver shouldn’t become a “major oil port.” As of this Earth Day, it has been an oil port for exactly a century, since Imperial Oil began work on B.C.’s first refinery in 1914 in what is now Port Moody. There were no pipelines then, so crude was moved by rail or tanker. For 60 years, Trans Mountain has supplied the Chevron refinery in Burnaby that is southern B.C.’s last source of fuel. Some of the Alberta crude is piped south to be refined into fuels and some of that product is barged back up to B.C. to keep our traffic moving. Today, the proposal to expand and upgrade that pipeline, and to build new oil and natural-gas pipelines across the north, dominate B.C.’s political scene. In keeping with the educational aspect of Earth Day, here are some things you may not know about energy and the environment. • A recent National Geographic report summarized the main sources of oil in the oceans around North America. Media coverage focuses on tanker and pipeline spills, but they only account for eight per cent of the total.

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA Fully 60 per cent of the oil load in North American waters is from natural seeps, where oil leaks from seafloor rock. One of the world’s largest is off Santa Barbara, Cal., where 20 to 25 tons flows out each day. It’s mostly consumed by oil-eating bacteria that have adapted and proliferated. The next biggest source is leakage from cars and trucks, which collects on pavement and is flushed to sea when it rains. • Earth Day is now preceded by Earth Hour, during which we are encouraged to turn out our lights to join a worldwide gesture of conservation. Many people use the occasion for a candlelight dinner. Given that B.C.’s power is nearly all from renewable hydroelectric sources and that the paraffin used to make candles is derived from petroleum or coal, this feel-good ritual produces an increase in greenhousegas emissions. David Suzuki is now promoting the idea of Earth Month, an expan-

sion of the symbolic effort designed to “raise awareness.” This is a popular notion in the climate-change industry which, to date, consists mostly of government officials and activists flying around the world to conferences in exotic locations to sign agreements that lead to, well, not much so far. • Unlike Earth Hour, B.C.’s carbon tax on fuels actually appears to be helping to reduce emissions. An update to provincial data is due this year but, what we have shows a 5.7 per cent decrease in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases between 2007 and 2011. Environment ministers have conceded that some of this is due to the recession that struck in 2008 and2009. But, since the economy has recovered and begun to grow again, emissions have continued to decline. • There are simple things anyone can do without gimmicks or government programs. One would be to stop protesting increased housing density in your community. By far the largest source of greenhouse-gas emissions in B.C., not to mention old-fashioned pollution, is transportation. By living closer to where we work, shop and play, we can exercise our legs instead of just our gas pedal foot to get around. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc email: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Embrace change before it buries us The angst at the pump this past week was predictable. Any time somebody informs you the cost of living is going up by a few hundred dollars, or more, during the next year, groans are inevitable. Unfortunately, what also seems inevitable is the resignation. Gas price hikes aren ’t new or unusual. It wasn’t that long ago prices were under a dollar per litre — and at least half the people reading this are going to remember filling up when that rate was less than 30 cents a litre. Every time those rates jumped, people greeted the hike with the same type of response we heard a few days ago when, for some inexplicable reason, gas prices in Kamloops rose by more than a dime in a nanosecond. And every time, by and large, people continued to do what they’ve always done — fill up their cars and head out to the highway. The simple is we are all slaves to the gas pump. Try as we might to avoid it, our society is built around the automobile and has been for at least 60 years. Where we live, where we work, where we learn, where we eat and where we play are often impractical and sometimes impossible to link without the aid of a gas-powered vehicle. Most of us don’t think we can do anything about it; it doesn’t occur to some of us why we should even try. But, we need to. We need to start directing our society away from its reliance on gas. It’s easy for some to dismiss the climate-change crowd as intellectual zealots and the 100-mile diet people as trendy hipsters, but the fact remains — we can’t continue down the path. Never mind the environmental issues, We simply will not be able to afford it financially. The future is coming and our lives are going to be different. Start embracing change before change buries us all.

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

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Story: Chief says B.C. Liberals failing on environment issues:

“Of course they are failing on environmental issues. “Their plan is to get rid of all environmental protection in order to allow huge mining, logging, oil and natural-gas exploitation. “People who stand up against this are considered by government to be enemies of the provincial government and the province of British Columbia. “Like Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Premier Christy Clark seems to think B.C. needs to be run by a communiststyle government.� — posted by 1LoneWolf

Minister Lake needs to defend universal health care Editor: Re: Minister of Health Terry Lake’s March 31 comment on Global News about the National Health Accord. The health accord is federal health-care transfers that Ottawa provides the provinces and territories each year to help fund health care. On March 31, the 10-year-old accord expired and the Stephen Harper Conservative government refuses to renew it. As a result, billions of dollars in federal medicare funding will be lost. British Columbia will be the hardest-hit province, losing $5 billion over the next 10 years. March 31 was also a National Day of Action to raise the alarm about the health accord. There were rallies in 10 communities across B.C. and dozens more across Canada, calling on the federal government to renew the accord. Global News covered the rallies and Lake’s comment in response to the public outcry was that he acknowledged B.C.

will be the hardest-hit province in Canada. But, what he went on to say next compelled me to write this letter. Lake said, “At the end of the day, the rules are the rules.� What is that supposed to mean? To me, this suggests Lake and the B.C. Liberal government are knuckling under and not putting any pressure on the federal government to renew the health accord. Is it not Lake’s job to protect health care and ensure residents of British Columbia receive access to affordable health care? Lake has been quoted as saying that the end of the National Health Accord will hurt, but that the B.C. Liberal party has already budgeted for it. He also said his government will look to innovation and efficiencies to compensate for the shortfall. Does this imply the B.C. Liberals have abandoned all hope of renegotiating the accord, something for which many

Canadians have fought so hard? Or does this imply services will be cut and privatization expanded? I looked on the B.C. Liberal website and saw there is nothing about the health accord and very little about health care. What are the intentions of the provincial government when it comes to health care? I think British Columbians deserve some transparency. I am calling on Lake to answer my questions and, if it’s not too much to ask, to stand up and do the right thing. He needs to put pressure on the federal government to renew the health accord and defend the universal health-care system because a two-tiered health-care system is unacceptable. This is not about what political party you belong to or what you do for a living. This is about protecting Canada’s national treasure — universal health care. Joanne Verrecchia Kamloops

Re: Story: Teachers to begin job action on April 23:

“There won’t be any impact on students? “It’s the end of April. End-of-semester projects and exams start as soon as a month from now. This is graduation season, track and field season and ‘fun day’ season for elementary schools. “Anyone who has gone through a strike knows there’s an impact on students — and it’s a big one. “I feel for the teachers, but I feel more for the students. These strikes are getting far too numerous and out of control.� — posted by Twelfth Night

TRASHING EASTER SUNDAY AT THE LAKE KTW reader Ed Odgaard visited Jacko Lake on Easter Sunday and was dismayed to be greeted by an unsightly mess of trash strewn across the grass near the water’s edge. Odgaard said the bag, which was filled with diapers and tissues, among other refuse, had been tossed next to the lake by someone who has no respect for the environment. Odgaard returned the next day with his utility trailer and cleaned up the mess. He was also perturbed by the fact there were many visitors to the lake south of Aberdeen, many of whom parked near the heap of trash and none of whom bothered to help pick it up. His aim in conveying this news to KTW’s readership? “We have to smarten up and start looking after our lakes,� he said.

Editor: The argument has been made that the proposed Ajax mine is to be built so close to the city because that is where the ore is located. The argument has also been made that the body of ore that is to be mined runs all the way to Kelowna and the reason the mine is proposed to be built so close to Kamloops is so the owners can take advantage of the infrastructure others have financed. This is a crucial fact that should be, but isn’t, known by most people affected. Richard Holmes Kamloops

B.C. NDP warns of development on farmland By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve introduced by the B.C. Liberal government are a signal to developers “the highest and best use” for farmland is housing development, charged B.C. New Democrat Leader Adrian Dix. Dix and MLA Lana Popham were in Kamloops on Thursday, April 17, meeting with producers to talk about ALR proposals. The provincial government has introduced legislation to carve up the province’s ALR into two zones.

Local commissioners for the Agricultural Land Reserve will have more leeway to consider non-farm uses in agricultural land in the second zone, which includes the Thompson region. Zone 2 will be “anything you want,” Dix warned. “It could be development . . . With this, it’s stating the highest and best use is for development.” The party has introduced a bill — the Local Food Act — to increase production in B.C. by setting targets. “We don’t expect ALR land to be a museum to agriculture,” Dix said. “We want it to be working farms.” The proposed changes by the B.C.

Liberal government also include appointment of regional panels to replace the single commission responsible for all of B.C. This marks a return to a system introduced and later abandoned under former premier Gordon Campbell. Popham said the ALR is one of the province’s most prized legacies and opposition to the changes is emerging. “They’ve broken the public trust,” she said. “There was no need to split the province into two zones.” B.C.’s cattle ranchers have been cautiously supportive of the changes, but say industry needs to see details of the regulations. It also warned about risk of housing development on agricultural land.

Students created a power-point presentation on their findings and presented it to every class. Part of the presentation involved a quiz

voting and judging in March. Projects were posted online for people to vote on their choice. Brock’s environment club submitted its project that included a garbage audit in the fall, taking bins from lunch rooms and sorting them into actual garbage and what could be recycled. That led to fewer items that could be

and the class that won received a reused bottle filled with smarties.

The club wants to buy new labelled bins to help students sort waste.

COVER PAGE STORY

WESTSYDE’S WALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2014

Great Golf at an Aff Affordable rd ble Price

Women Play for

DR. NADINE CARON Caron, who graduated from Westsyde secondary in 1988, studied Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University, playing varsity soccer and basketball. She went on to become the first female First Nations student to graduate from the University of British Columbia’s School of Medicine and did so as the top student in her class. Caron completed her master’s degree in public health at Harvard University and did an endocrine surgical oncology fellowship at the University of California San Francisco. She is a faculty member of the northern medicine program at the University of Northern British Columbia, an associate faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Centre for American Indian Health and an assistant professor at the UBC School of Medicine.

DYLAN ARMSTRONG Armstrong graduated from Westsyde in 1999 and is the reigning Commonwealth Games and Pan American Games gold medallist in shot put. He also has a silver medal from the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Athletics and a bronze medal from the 2010 World Indoor Championships in Athletics. He holds the Canadian record, the Commonwealth Games record and the Pan American Games record in shot put and is the first Canadian to reach the podium in a throwing event in an international competition. Armstrong competed for Canada in two Olympic Games — 2008 in Beijing and 2012 in London. He finished fourth and fifth, respectively, though may be awarded the bronze medal from 2008 after Belarusian Andrei Mikhnevich was found to have used a banned substance.

GORDON GORE Gore has had a profound impact on the City of Kamloops — in the classroom and in the community. The founder of the Big Little Science Centre, Gore has inspired generations of students to study the sciences. He spent 13 years teaching at Westsyde before leaving to start the science centre. He is also credited with curating Westsyde’s history on film, having taken thousands of photos in his time at the school. His photography still hangs in the school in an area called Gordon Gore Hall. Gore also wrote textbooks and taught around the province, including at the University of British Columbia. He retired from teaching in 1991 and left the Big Little Science Centre in 2014.

Gore was a pillar of the community at Westsyde for more than a decade and is credited with curating the school’s history on film. He spent 13 years as a science teacher at Westsyde and is the founder of the Big Little Science Centre. The centre has gone on to inspire hundreds of students to study the sciences. Gore said his fondest memories of Westsyde extend beyond the classroom, photographing the school’s competitive sports teams and running the model rocket club on the weekends. Gore’s career took him to many places, including stints at the University of British Columbia and as a textbook writer, but he said he always came back to high-school teaching because he loved working with young people. He was one of the teachers who started Caron on her path in the sciences, developing a love that led to her becoming a well-known surgeon, researcher and educator. “He taught me, yeah, but he did more than that — he did more than that for everybody,” Caron said. “He was a great teacher — everyone loved being in his class. “In retrospect now, having a daughter myself and recognizing, he made science fun. He made

you want to understand it, which is very different than simply being a good teacher and getting through curriculum.” “It’s quite an honour because there’s been a lot of good people go through there,” Gore said. “I’m looking forward to it.” Caron has established herself as a leader in her field and has garnered national and international recognition for her work. Despite an impressive resume, she said she was still surprised when she got the call informing her she was going on the wall. Armstrong might be the most internationally known member of the Wall of Fame group, an Olympic shot putter who has found the podium at the Commonwealth Games, Track and Field World Championships and the Pan American Games. Armstrong said he was humbled and honoured to be going on the wall, but said credit for his achievements can be given to the community as much as him. “I think, when you are older and time goes on and you look back at your teenage years, you really realize that your dreams as a young person cannot be accomplished without the support and guidance of so many people,” Armstrong told KTW.

“Memories for me, of my teachers and the support staff at this school during those years in the ’90s, are all fond memories. “In my sport, dedication, commitment and hard work all prepared me for my future and I was surrounded in my high school years — not only by the school, but by the Westsyde community, with some wonderful people,” he said. Westsyde secondary is planning to admit a Wall of Fame class each year — generally a single person will be honoured as a part of the graduation ceremony, though Preymak and Lamoureux said there may be some years with no inductees and others with many additions. The school’s 40th-anniversary celebration has evolved into something the administration didn’t expect, but that’s part of what makes it so special. “This whole process has kind of evolved and moulded to what it currently is,” Lamoureux said, noting it was originally designed to be a small gathering with drinks and desserts. “Usually, you celebrate the grad class of ’85 or the grad class of ’76. This is a celebration of the culture that has been created at Westsyde and Westsyde secondary.”

HOME & GARDEN

Warm weather means it���s time to go outside As the weather turns warmer, we are anxious to escape to the outdoors. But, has the harsh winter weather put a damper on your outdoor spaces? Don’t fret. You can easily spruce up your exteriors with a few easy and inexpensive home improvement projects. Here are a few fast fixes that will have your yard, garden, porch and patio looking great without leaving your wallet empty.

UNPACK AND UPDATE

The first step in preparing your outdoor space is to unpack storage areas and populate patios and porches with furniture and accents you put away for the winter season. These pieces often don’t fare well in storage and your once-beautiful accents may be scratched, faded or even rusty. “It’s disappointing to find once-vibrant outdoor furniture and accents looking worn and outdated, especially when you’re not ready to invest in new,” said Katherine Merkle, Krylon brand manager. “Luckily, with a bit of spray paint — especially a version that’s paint and primer in one — it’s simple to revitalize your current pieces to make them lovely and enjoyable and for only a few dollars.” Krylon’s Dual Superbond Paint + Primer spray paint is the ideal solution with a unique formulation that’s available in a wide variety of the most popular colours and finishes. With paint and primer in one can, you can complete your projects easily and quickly in one step — with a great finish that lasts like you primed it. Plus, it works on many surfaces, including wood, metal, wicker, glass, ceramic, fabric, concrete and masonry, allowing you to update all your outdoor accents. “Whether looking to add a vibrant pop of colour to dull flower pots; restoring sun-faded

patio umbrellas; or restoring damaged or dull furniture surfaces, Dual Superbond has the colour you need in the simple, one-step, affordable solution you desire,” Merkle said.

CLEAN AND CLEAR

Cold weather can leave outdoor spaces looking dirty and gray, so the next step is to start cleaning. Pressure washing is a simple way to get patios, sidewalks, windows and siding looking

ready for the season. Don’t have a pressure washer? No worries. Most rental companies or home improvement centres offer reasonably priced daily rentals. Or, it’s an opportunity to visit neighbours you haven’t seen during the cold months to borrow theirs.

GET GRILLING

Once you’ve cleaned, repaired and painted, you’ll be ready to enjoy some entertaining. To prep

your grill for another year of burgers and barbeques, make sure you start with a good cleaning. Home improvement expert, Danny Lipford, has a simple and inexpensive way to clean the cooking surface using aluminum foil and white vinegar. The acid in the vinegar cuts through grease and cooked-on food, while the foil acts as an abrasive to remove residue. Simply pour white vinegar in a clean spray bottle, spray the cooking surface and let it sit for a

few minutes. Next, rub the cooking area with crumpled up aluminum foil. You’ll have a clean grill with items you probably have sitting in your pantry. With a few fast do-it-yourself updates, your home and outdoor areas will be looking fabulous in no time — and all without a huge price tag.

THE MISSION OF THE KAMLOOPS HOSPICE ASSOCIATION IS TO ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF PERSONS AND THEIR FAMILIES FACING DEATH AND BEREAVEMENT THROUGH SKILLED AND COMPASSIONATE PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL CARE IN THE SETTING OF THE INDIVIDUAL’S CHOICE.

History Kamloops Hospice is a non-profit Association that began in 1981. It was the vision of a small group of people who held the sincere desire to support those diagnosed with a terminal illness. In 1983 the first patient volunteers were trained to assist with clients in the community and a lending library was established. Marjorie Willoughby Snowden was one of our founding members was quoted as saying “dying people, if you really listen, teach us how to live” Marjorie had a dream that one day a free standing Hospice Home would be built in Kamloops.; although she did not live to see her dream fulfilled, the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home opened February 16, 2004.

After many years of planning and fundraising, construction began in 2002 with only 40% of the necessary funds required. The mission of the Kamloops Hospice Association is to enhance the quality of life of persons and their families facing death and bereavement through skilled and compassionate physical, emotional and spiritual care in the setting of the individual’s choice.

THE

VOLUNTEERS Our volunteers are an integral part of our ability to provide services both in the community and at the Hospice Home. We have trained volunteers who spend time with clients in their home and at the Hospice Home; one volunteer who was part of the first training program in 1981 said “I won’t deny that it’s not difficult at times but I care about people and helping them with their final journey”. Volunteers also run our Thrift Store, serve on the Board of Directors, provide administrative support, tend our extensive gardens, craft, fundraise, shop,

and create amazing aromas with their special recipes. When asked her thoughts on volunteering, our Wednesday baker/cook shared that ‘it is an amazing journey to be part of the House, thru sadness and tears there is laughter and joy”.

STAFF Hospice staff are dedicated to the comfort and care of patients and families at a very crucial time in their lives. This year we had the opportunity to recognize six staff for 10 years of service. When the staff were asked what they appreciate about working at hospice some of the comments were: • “it’s an honor to be a part of our patients and families lives during this intimate time”. • “There is no judgement here, we respect people and the choices they make” • “We work with an exceptional team, we have a common purpose” • “There is sadness sometimes but there is also a lot of joy “ • “We receive far more than we give, it makes me more mindful of my own life”

FUNDING

TESTIMONIALS

The Kamloops Hospice Association is grateful for the ongoing support from the community through donations and fundraising efforts. Although we receive partial funding from Interior Health, we would not be able to offer the services available or fully operate the Hospice Home without the generous support of our donors. Fundraising: KHA holds two major fundraisers each year. Celebrate-A-Life includes a craft fair and is held during the month of December. In April we hold our gala event, Evening to Remember. This year we are raising funds to purchase 6 new patient beds and 12 new sofa beds and thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we are well on our way to meeting our goal of $65,000. There are many community groups, schools, and organizations that hold

fundraising events throughout the year in support of Hospice. Memorial donations , gifts in kind, and legacy giving are also ways in which people support Hospice financially.

“Words are not enough to express our gratitude in the care and compassion you shared with my Dad and our family. You are so special and we are thankful we have people like you to help families through their grief. “ “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the gracious kindness you extended to my Mother. She felt spoiled and pampered, she was treated royally. “ “The gifts you have given our family are unmeasurable, and for that we will forever be thankful.”

“Our Mom passed away at your Home in the most comfort possible. Your staff and their incredible outlook made all the difference in the world to her, to my Dad and all the children.” “Thank you for the compassion and caring you showed my mother in her final days and also for the support received by my family. You are special people indeed.” “I appreciate knowing my Mom enjoyed the beautiful view, listening to the sound of laughter and the wonderful bath. It made her so much more comfortable.”

HOME & GARDEN

Increase your pool efficiency Rising fuel costs and greater restrictions on water usage can make running pool and spa equipment more expensive these days — but the pool-and spa-industry has come up with a number of technological innovations to help you save energy, increase efficiency and cut operating costs. Many pool and spa pumps, for example, now use more energy efficient motors that operate at variable speeds for greater efficiency. A micro-processor built into the pump determines and maintains the lowest amount of water flow for maximum performance and minimal energy use. Pool heaters have also gone ‘green’. Special gas heater models called Low NOx now release lower amounts of nitrogen oxide emissions into the air, which have been linked to smog and acid rain, while some heat pump pool heaters now use a special refrigerant that will not deplete the earth’s

ozone layer. Cartridge filters have been redesigned to allow pool and spa owners to use smaller pumps or variable-speed pump speeds to minimize energy use. These filters also use cartridge elements that can be rinsed, rather than backwashed, to reduce water use. The use of LED lights has also resulted in considerable energy savings for the pool and spa owner because of the minimal energy required to operate them. LED lights, as well as other pool and support equipment, save you even more money when operated by an automatic control system that allows you to take advantage of off-peak seasonal utility rates. Special centrifugal water filtration devices have also been introduced that filter out up to 80 per cent of incoming sediment before the water is sent to the pool filter, reducing the need to backwash and saving water.

Close to half of heat losses from pools come off the surface. Cutting off the surface area by deploying solar covers/ blankets on pools can lower costs of heating, filtration and chemical sanitization by almost half. Similar results are achievable with thermal insulating covers on hot tubs. Even something as simple as a liquid solar product can

dramatically improve heat retention in pools — reducing heating costs. These products create a liquid layer over the pool water to slow down evaporation of water and conserve heat in the pool. More energy-saving ideas as well as guidelines are available online at poolcouncil.ca or toll-free at 1-800-879-7066. — newscanada.com

HOME & GARDEN

Every block has one — the impeccably manicured, abundantly plush, flawlessly green lawn. It’s the envy of everyone on the street, but this year, it can be yours. “Anyone can have a great looking lawn if they apply the right tools, practices and materials,” said Scott Ride of Husqvarna, one of the world’s largest producers of outdoor power products. “These tips from the pros will make sure that the grass stays greener on your side of the fence.” Mow frequently with sharp blades: Frequent cutting forces your turf to grow thick, keeping out weeds. Keep your mower’s blades sharp so the grass doesn’t become bruised and susceptible to disease. Sharpening can be done at any Husqvarna dealer. Pay attention to the weather: Dry spells and rainy periods mean different routines for your lawn. Weather can be unpredictable. Monitor the weather for extreme

heat waves or mass rainfall so you can adjust your lawn routine accordingly. Avoid watering at night: Be sure to let the grass dry out before the dew falls, as extended moisture invites disease. The best time to water is pre-dawn or early morning. Keep it long: You may think that a quality-looking lawn has to be short, but keeping your grass around five to nine centimetres will keep the soil cooler, keep it moist longer, and encourage deeper root penetration. Avoid over-fertilization: Many home owners use fertilizer liberally, even when they don’t need it. Over fertilization can shock your grass and burn the roots, use it sparingly on problem areas or try a slow release, or natural fertilizer. Additional lawn tips and information about tool options for proper maintenance can be found online at husqvarna.ca.

NATIONAL NEWS

Funerals held for Alta. officials investigate death in oil patch mass-murder victims CALGARY — The uncle of a woman who was stabbed to death at a house party told mourners at her funeral Monday, April 21, she was “a tiny girl with such huge courage.’’ There was overwhelming grief but also laughter as Kaiti Perras was remembered as a dancer, sister, artist and confidante. Perras, who was 23, was one of five young people killed last week in an attack at a party marking the end of classes at the University of Calgary. She had attended Mount Royal University and loved to dance, so the family has set up a dance scholarship in her name. Another party-goer, 22-year-old Matthew de Grood, faces five counts of first-degree murder. Two trees are to be planted in memory of Perras at a Calgary park in the fall. Earlier on Monday, a friend reassured mourners at Jordan Segura’s funeral the university student wasn’t alone when he died. Jayda Shreenan told more than 300 people at the service in a Calgary chapel that Segura was surrounded by those who loved him as he took his last breath. “Myself and a couple of friends were with him right at the end and I want you all to know that Jordan was not alone,’’ said Shreenan, choking back tears. Shreenan remembered Segura, 22, as a generous and wonderful friend who was always ready with a compliment. “I am so thankful that I was able to have Jordan in my life. It wasn’t long enough, but the impact he made on me and the inspiration that he is is something I’m going to take with me for the rest of my life,’’ she said as mourners wiped away tears. Segura’s older brother, Jullien, said Segura was all about integrity

and speaking the truth. He drew chuckles from the crowd when he talked about how he took being the big brother very seriously. “I would pick on him just because I was bigger, but I made sure everyone knew that only I was allowed to pick on him,’’ he said. “It is great to hear that Jordan spoke so highly of his family when he was with his friends. We are grateful for all of them. His friends were his family.’’ Segura’s love of family was a focal point in the one-hour service. Mourners heard he had two tattoos — one of his grandfather’s favourite car, a Bel-Air, and another showing a red heart with “mom’’ written through it. Segura’s plain wooden coffin was covered with a bouquet of white carnations and white roses. A photo montage showed him as a youth and with family and friends. A reggae version of the original Bread song Everything I Own played in the background. Segura had mentioned to a co-worker once “that’s the song I want played at my funeral.” “I would give everything I own, just to have you back again,’’ the lyrics said. A funeral was also being held Monday for Josh Hunter. Segura, Perras, Hunter, Zackariah Rathwell and Lawrence Hong were all attacked at the house party April 15. De Grood, the son of a senior Calgary police officer, was due to appear in court Tuesday.

FORT MCMURRAY — Alberta occupational health and safety officers are investigating the death of an employee at the Suncor oilsands development in northern Alberta. Government spokesman Barrie Harrison says the man who died Sunday, April 20, was a 27-year-old Suncor electrician who was working near electrical panels on the worksite. His identity and the official cause of his death have not been released. Suncor has said

the man was severely injured and was pronounced dead in hospital in Fort McMurray. Investigators have issued a stop-use order for the electrical panels as they try to determine what happened. They will be looking to see if there was an equipment failure, and are reviewing what the man was doing, the company’s work rules

and what kind of training he had. “We will be looking at every possible angle,’’ Harrison said. “We owe that not just to this worker, but to his co-workers and his family and friends. “We want to find out what happened in this circumstance so it doesn’t happen again.’’ This is the second death of a Suncor

A sea creature unfamiliar in Canadian waters has hitchhiked its way across the Pacific ocean on a piece of suspected tsunami debris from Japan’s 2011 earthquake. A non-indigenous mussel has been found on a piece of wreckage believed to have drifted to B.C. after the devastating Japanese tsunami. Officials have yet to conduct a full risk-assessment of the species, called mytilus coruscus. Scientists say the mussel is one of the most important marine shellfish species in Korea.

DIANA NESBITT February 18, 1966 – April 14, 2014

JAMES MATTHEW SZEKERES June 16, 1957 - April 17, 2014

On Monday April 14, we lost our Diana in a tragic accident.

The family of James Matthew Szekeres are extremely saddened to announce his passing at the age of 56.

Diana was born in 1966 to Tom and Helen Nesbitt. From an early age, she was known by her parents and two sisters and their family as Birdie. Even when she was a little girl growing up in Kamloops she knew she wanted to be a nurse. In 1985 she moved to Vancouver to attend the School of Nursing at UBC.

James, or Jimmy as he liked to be called by close family, spent 16 years of his life in the Vancouver Police Department. Jim was a trailblazer, eventually rising to the rank of the detachment’s first full-time media relations officer. Upon his retirement, he moved to Kamloops and devoted himself to his family, and social work with A.S.K. Wellness. Like his work with the VPD, Jim was integral to the bettering of numerous lives through his work with the program.

It was there that she met Bruce, who later became her husband. After their two children, Jeffrey and Madelene, were born Diana postponed her nursing career to raise her kids with extravagant cooking and extended bike rides. She became president of the Montessori in Delta Society, was an incredibly active team Mom, and encouraged frequent piano practice along with countless other activities. When her kids had grown Diana resumed her nursing career. Part of the way through her refresher training she suffered a stroke, but fought her way back to a full recovery working at the Irene Thomas Hospice Residence. She was devoted to her job, patients, and the wonderful team that she worked with. Diana loved to cook, loved to look after people and was happiest when she was preparing an amazing meal for a houseful of family and friends. Diana touched so many lives, and she was the rock to our family. She helped us all to be our best. She had a huge heart and loved all her family and friends deeply. She did her best to make every life she touched a little better. We miss her deeply and will always treasure her in our hearts. We love you Mum. There will be a Celebration of Diana’s Life on May 9, 2014 at Hycroft Manor in Vancouver at 1 pm. Donations can be made to the Delta Hospice Society.

He is survived by his wonderful children Katelyn (Nathanael), Matthew, and Jonathan from Debi, his beautiful daughter Angeline from Sheri, his close friends Bob, John, and Scotty, as well as numerous family in Ontario, including his brother John Michael, sister Judy and mother June. Jim was born in Oshawa, Ontario, and decided to make his mark early, moving out at the age of 15. He loved action movies, foods that are bad for you, and was a late convert to the Vancouver Canucks. He was a voracious reader of any topic, and in addition to his many successes in life, Jim’s greatest achievement was being a perfect father, mentor and role model for his four children. Jim was the center of any party, always the funniest person in the room, and his infectious smile and laughter will never be forgotten. There will be a Celebration of Life for Jimmy at the Kamloops Funeral Home on Saturday, April 26, at 2 pm. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be expressed to the family www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

The moment that you died my heart was torn in two, one side lled with heartache, the other died with you. I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday, but missing you is heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart, and there you will remain, until the joyous day arrives, that we will meet again.

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!”.

NATIONAL NEWS

U.S. workers Air Canada axing employees who threw baggage blast Keystone process By Alexander Panetta CANADIAN PRESS

American pipeline workers are blasting a decision to delay the Keystone XL process, saying the move by the Obama administration has erased a few thousand high-paying jobs this summer. One union — the Laborers’ International Union of North America — called the move gutless and accused the government of announcing it on a holiday weekend in the hope fewer people would be paying attention. One member of that union said his phone is ringing off the hook. Ron Berringer said he has received more than 30 calls since Friday, April 18, when the U.S. State Department announced Keystone XL would be delayed indefinitely. A presidential permit is on hold, apparently until next year at the earliest. Union members are calling to ask what the move might mean for their livelihoods — and Berringer cringes whenever the phone rings. “When they call, I almost dread even picking it up,’’ said Berringer, a semi-nomadic construction worker from Iowa and shop steward for his Nebraska-based union local. “I know what they’re gonna talk about and I know what I’ve got to tell them. And, what I’ve got to tell them is, ‘I just don’t know.’’’ Berringer is among the thousands of workers who will build the rest of Keystone XL, if it ever gets approval. Their role has become central to the debate, with pipeline proponents arguing it would create thousands of construction jobs. Opponents, however, insist it would only result in a few dozen permanent jobs once completed. As a state, Nebrasks has the third-lowest unemployment rate in the U.S., at 3.7 per cent. President Barack Obama has downplayed the project’s potential job impact.

TORONTO — Two Air Canada baggage handlers set to lose their jobs over a video showing bags being dropped several metres into a bin on the ground were working under intense pressure to move the items quickly, their union said Monday, April 21. Bill Trbovich, a spokesman for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said when there’s no more room for carry-on luggage inside a plane, handlers are forced to take the rest outside in a rush to be stowed elsewhere so the flight isn’t delayed. But the stairs up to the plane are so steep, it would be dangerous to hurry down, he said. Meanwhile, “management is pushing them to get the planes out on time,’’ he said. The video, taken by a passenger on board

To watch the video, go online to YouTube and search for “How Air Canada Handles Your Baggage.”

a plane at Toronto’s Pearson Airport, shows one worker dropping baggage about six metres from the stairs to a luggage bin on the ground while another baggage handler works below. Air Canada, which has dealt with backlash since the video was posted on YouTube on April 18, said the two employees have been suspended and will be fired as a result of the incident. They have been told “their employment will be terminated pending the outcome of our investigation,’’ spokeswoman Angela Mah said in an email. The airline has apologized for what it calls the “totally unacceptable mishandling of our passengers’ baggage captured on video.’’

The video is titled “How Air Canada Handles Your Baggage’’ and has prompted some to vow never to fly with Air Canada again. Some, however, have come to the airline’s defence, saying it shouldn’t be judged by one incident. Trbovich said it’s not yet known whether the union will file a grievance. But he stressed the airline could help prevent such incidents by enforcing its own carryon restrictions. Employees are also under increased scrutiny now that everyone can shoot photos and video on their phone and it’s not enough to just do your job safely and to the best of your abilities, he said. “You’re constantly looking over your

Lightning livid with disallowed-goal call By Kelsey Patterson CANADIAN PRESS

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

MONTREAL — Ryan Callahan thought he had given the Lightning a lifeline. With the game tied 1-1 late in the second period, Callahan appeared to score the go-ahead goal for Tampa Bay, which had dropped the first two games of its playoff series at home against Montreal. Instead, the goal was waved off for goaltender interference. The Canadiens went on to score before the end of the period and ultimately beat Tampa Bay 3-2 on Sunday, April 20, at the Bell Centre to take a 3-0 series lead over the Bolts. After Callahan’s goal was disallowed at 16:09 of the second, the referees and linesmen conferred, but did not overturn the decision on the ice. Lightning coach Jon Cooper was furious on the bench. “I was (angry) then, and I’m (angry) now,’’ said Cooper. “It’s tough to walk in that locker-room and look those guys in the eye when clearly that was our best game of the series. They deserved a better fate tonight.’’

The play started when forward Alex Killorn drove hard to the net, stumbling over Carey Price as he tried to beat the Canadiens goaltender with a shot between the legs. Price made the save before Killorn tripped over his pads and landed in the back of the net. P.K. Subban, who was in the crease batting the puck out of mid-air, prevented Killorn from leaving the goal area. As the Lightning forward finally walked out of the net, he nudged Price, forcing him out of position. Seconds later, Callahan jammed the puck past Price, but his celebration was cut short by referee Francis Charron’s whistle. The goal would have given Tampa its first lead since the second period of Game 1. “I was just trying to get out of the way,’’ said Killorn. “It felt like a good scramble there for a little bit. “It seemed like it was a little while after we made contact. “The play was going along, and then the puck went in. It felt like there was a little time there.’’ Killorn thought Price jumped onto him as he was trying to leave the crease,

and not the other way around. “It’s discouraging, but you have to have a short memory in those periods. It’s playoff hockey,’’ said Killorn. “We understand there’s a lot of pressure on these referees. Whether the call is right or wrong, we need to move on from that. “He (Charron) told me he thought it was the right call. That’s fine by me.’’ Price didn’t exactly see it the same way. “It was kind of a mad scramble,’’ the Canadiens goaltender said. “Their guy was in the crease and I tripped over him. That’s why I was out of the play.’’ Two minutes after the Callahan goal was disallowed, Brendan Gallagher gave the Canadiens the lead when his shot rang off the crossbar and beat Bolts netminder Anders Lindback for his second goal of the playoffs. “There’s a high when the puck goes in like that,’’ said Tampa’s captain Steven Stamkos of the disallowed goal. “When it gets called off, you lose focus for a little bit. That’s tough. Especially in the playoffs, in a tight game like that. “We thought it was a good goal.’’ Stamkos briefly

left the game after defenceman Alexei Emelin inadvertently kneed him in the head after he was knocked down to the ice late in the second frame. The Lightning medial staff cleared him to play in the third. After Tomas Plekanec made it 3-1 for Montreal mid-way through the final period, Stamkos assisted on Matthew Carle’s goal from the point to reduce the deficit. But the comeback ended there. “We deserved better tonight,’’ said Stamkos. “We’ll have to use that as motivation for next game.’’ Down 3-0 in the series, Tampa Bay is in real danger of a sweep. Game 4 gets underway in Montreal today (April 22) at 4 p.m. Despite disagreeing with the call on the ice, Cooper thought his team reacted well after the disallowed goal. “It’s still a tie game,’’ he said. “You have to turn the page. Stuff like that happens. There was plenty of time to come back in the game. “Let’s call a spade a spade: We only scored three goals — I mean, two,’’ added Cooper, facetiously. “And they got three. We just fell short.’’

Winterhawks, Rockets knotted at one in West final LOTTO#’S

The Portland Winterhawks defeated the Kelowna Rockets 5-3 on Saturday, April 19, at Prospera Place in Kelowna, evening the team’s best-of-seven WHL Western Conference final at one game apiece. Game 3 will be played tonight (April 22) in the Rose City. The Rockets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on Saturday, but the Winterhawks came out flying in the second frame and took over the game. “I think things shifted in the second period. They scored on the first shift and there were a few shifts where they came at us hard,” Rockets coach Ryan Huska said on the AM1150 post-game show. “Momentum changed. We never got a push-back shift and we ended up standing around.” Nick Merkley and Riley Stadel paced the Rockets to a first-period lead, but Dominic Turgeon’s early second-period

goal got the Winterhawks going. Madison Bowey gave Kelowna a 3-1 lead a few minutes later, but Portland turned on the offence and scored three more times in the period to lead 4-3 through two periods. Nic Petan had a goal and two assists as the Winterhawks outshot Kelowna 51-26. Huska said the team wasn’t physical enough. “We were taking hits tonight and

We have to get back to doing what we do best.” Attendance in Kelowna was 6,341 as fans packed into Prospera Place, selling out the building on back-to-back nights. “We have to make some adjustments and play the way we can,” said Huska. “Portland is not an easy place to play but, if we play the right way, we will give ourselves a chance to win.” — Black Press

Toronto GM drops F bomb, Raptors lose By Neil Davidson

THE CANADIAN PRESS sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

TORONTO — As playoff basketball finally returned to Toronto, Raptors fans got a good look at general manager Masai Ujiri on Saturday, April 19. Behind the soft fabric of the expensive suit is a sandpaper-like lining. Ujiri found himself briefly in the limelight Saturday after insulting Brooklyn before an outdoor gathering of fans in advance of Toronto’s NBA playoff game against the Nets. He apologized in a brief meeting with the media at halftime. Brooklyn had the last laugh, hanging on for a 94-87 victory in Game 1 of the firstround best-of-seven series. Game 2 gets under-

way tonight (April 22) at 4:30 p.m. at the Air Canada Centre (ACC). Emotions ran high on Saturday as the Raptors returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and Ujiri helped stoke the pre-game fire. Ujiri, a former NBA executive of the year in Denver, took the stage before the afternoon game to address pumped-up fans under bright sunshine at Maple Leafs Square. The moment seemed to get to him as he paired an F-bomb and Brooklyn on his way off the stage. The crowd loved it, roaring in response. He handed the microphone to his boss, Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke, who smiled and shook his head before leaving the stage.

Video of the trash talk quickly surfaced on Twitter and other social media. Toronto coach Dwane Casey was anything but offended. “That’s Masai,’’ he said when asked after the game about the incident. “That’s why our team plays like that. He’s a fiery guy and that should represent how we feel.’’ “He’s a very passionate guy,’’ echoed Toronto guard Lyle Lowry. “He believes in what we have and what we’re doing. That’s what he is, he’s a very passionate and emotional guy.’’ The GM was quick to do damage control, with team officials summoning media for a halftime gathering in the hall outside the playoff media centre at the ACC. “I apologize. Wrong

choice of words out there,’’ Ujiri told some three dozen media. “This thing is really not about me, it’s about the players and the playoffs. So, just trying to get the crowd out there rattled. Wrong choice of words. “I apologize to kids out there and to the Brooklyn guys. Nothing against them. Just trying to get our fans going. That’s it.’’ He declined to take questions, but he offered an addendum, over his shoulder, as he headed down the corridor. “You know how I feel,’’ he said. “I don’t like them [the Nets] but I apologize.’’ Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd had little to say on the matter. “I don’t even know who the [Toronto] GM is,’’ he said.

‘Raptors vs. Dinosaurs’ series heats up ahead of Game 2 XFrom A29

When told minutes later what Ujiri had said, Kidd was still unwilling to bite. “I could care less what they think about Brooklyn,’’ he said. “We have a job to do and that’s to play a game of basketball.’’ Veteran Nets star Kevin Garnett was also unfazed by Ujiri’s comment. “It’s all good. It is motivation,’’ he said. Adding to the drama of the day, the shot clocks stopped working — prompting a break — in the third quarter. The shot clock was subsequently counted down by longtime PA announcer Herbie Kuhn as he looked at the stopwatch held by the official next to him. Kuhn likely needed a post-game throat lozenge. The soldout crowd of 19,800 was loud and proud inside the building and out. Those inside sported giveaway white T-shirts with the words Northern Uprising around a Raptors logo on them. Drake, hip-hop star and Raptors global

ambassador, sported one of the shirts under his jacket in his normal courtside perch. He was heavily

involved in the Raptors’ rebrand, built around the slogan “We The North.’’ Ujiri was feisty prior to the series, after

talk the Nets may have slipped down the standings in order to face the Raptors. The Toronto GM

said his team hasn’t lost one second of sleep worrying about the Brooklyn Nets. “They can do what-

ever they want,’’ Ujiri said. “We’ll be right here.’’ The Toronto Sun tab-

loid helped stir the pot with a Page 1 headline that said “Raptors vs. Dinosaurs,’’ in a shot at Brooklyn’s aging stars.

THIS WEEK

WSS grads join students for Blood Relations By Andrea Klassen

STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

S THE FOLK rhyme says, “Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks.”

But, whether the young Massachusetts woman really murdered her parents on a fateful morning in 1892 isn’t so cut-anddried in Westsyde secondary’s production of Blood Relations, coming to the high school stage this week. “Throughout the whole play, it’s constantly telling you, ‘Oh, she definitely did it,’” said Grade 12 student Avery Reid, who plays the allegedly murderous Borden. “And then, right after that, it’s, ‘Oh, no, no she didn’t do it.’ “It’s left up to the audience to decide whether she did it or didn’t.” Set 10 years after Borden’s famous trial, the play picks up as Lizzie’s love interest — played by Brooke Simmons — is pressing her for details of the case. As the play flashes back in time to tell the story of the murders, Simmons’ character takes on the role of Lizzie, seeing the events leading up to the axe through her eyes. Director and WSS drama teacher Stephen Sawka said the script is full of big ideas and themes that most Grade 12 students wouldn’t get to tackle. “It’s the descent into madness for this character [Lizzie],” he said.

“What makes someone want to kill someone? Or even think those kind of thoughts?” Giving the production an unusual twist is the presence of two actors from Sawka’s Acting Alumni Theatre company — former Westsyde grads who return to the school stage from time to time to put on shows that are too mature for the high school company. The two groups don’t normally work together, but Sawka said casting Dusan Magdolen (WSS class of 2002) and Gisella Ramsey as Borden’s parents helped give those roles a more aged appearance — and gave his Grade 12 and 11 students a chance to learn from people who have been on the professional stage. “They’ve melded really nicely together,” he said of the cast. “There’s that sense of trust there that sometimes you don’t get with actors who don’t know each other when you throw them on stage and just expect them to do something.” For their part, Reid and Simmons say they’re learning plenty from the senior cast. “Once you bring in somebody that’s been in theatre production for so long, it’s cool. You learn different little tricks,” Simmons said. “The bar has been raised,” Reid added. “Everyone has to step it up.” Magdolen said being a veteran performer working with the WSS students brings a different perspective to the craft. “It’s a different energy with high-school kids,” he said. Blood Relations runs in the Rachel Ball Theatre at WSS from April 23 to 26 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call 250-579-9271.

Ninjas, spies, brothers and musicians join for the win By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthis.com

Ninjaspy doesn’t have the most fans in the country — but the ones it has are rabid and are stepping up with their cash to prove it. The band of brothers — Joel, Adam and Tim Parent — have gone to the Internet to fund their next CD, with a goal of reaching $10,000. Joel said the campaign is going well, with a couple of big dona-

14-073.5_Earth_Day_10.3125x7_FBC-P2.indd 1

tions and, as of last week, was almost half-way there. The plan for the Vancouverbased metal-ska band is to be in the studio in coming months and have the final product ready to ship out in September. First, there’s the Jump Ya Bones Western Canada Tour, which brings the brothers to Kamloops on Sunday, April 27, for a 19-plus show at the Dirty Jersey. Joel agreed he and his siblings have come a long way from their

childhood, one that — for him — included piano lessons as a kid and, once the teenaged years hit, the guitar took over. Brother Adam is the drummer and Tim plays bass. Joel said the three of them have been playing music together since 1999 but didn’t get serious about a band until 2006. The name came from a talk he had with a friend, one that included a typical teenager question: “Who would win in an internation-

al battle — a ninja or a spy?” “I just asked why we couldn’t combine the two to win,” he said — and the band had its name. Joel did much of the songwriting at first, but his brothers have been doing more through the years. He said it’s not been difficult working and being on the road with them. “It can be nasty and it can be great. It has its ups and downs. We’re brothers.” Their first recording, Pi Nature,

came out in 2007, followed by No Kata, an extended-play, last year. They’ve played a lot of festivals: The Warped Tour and New Music West in Vancouver, the Armstrong Open Air festival and the NXNE in Toronto. And, they’ve opened for plenty of like-minded bands, including Cancer Bats, 3 Inches of Blood, the Dreadnoughts, Protest the Hero and Coheed and Cambria.

CAREERS EXPERIENCE IS WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD You’re over 40 years old, have lost your job and fear that your age will only be a handicap on the job market? Right now, you’re probably in the process of questioning your abilities and your selfconfidence has hit rock bottom. What’s more, because of your accumulated years of experience, you don’t want to drop to the bottom of the ladder — you’re looking for a competitive salary. Employers are not always ready to pay well and yet, by investing in an experienced candidate, the company will gain in efficiency. Taking the time to establish a list of your achievements, experience, abilities and qualities is an important step in your job search. This crucial process will allow you to realize your true value.

The majority of employers are favourable to the idea of hiring workers older than 40 for several reasons: Acquired experience, maturity, stability, performance, assiduousness, and availability. The person knows him or herself well, knows what they can offer the company and has solid references. Therefore, it is essential to see your age as an

advantage. Having a positive attitude about your age is imperative because if you aren’t convinced of the benefits how can you convince someone else? Perhaps you’re older, but you’re also a person who possesses many qualities and assets that make you the person an employer is looking for. Never doubt this. Have confidence in yourself and go for it!

Kia shows green Soul with electric vehicle

K

ia’s first all-electric vehicle, the 2015 Soul EV, is green both inside and out. In any electric vehicle (EV), one expects a powerful motorbattery combination and at least a 140-kilometre range. But, the Soul EV approach is a more complete green package, starting with the interior with Underwriters’ Laboratory awarding its first ever automotive validation for the high percentage of biobased material used in the cabin. Bio-based plastics using cellulose and sugar cane are used throughout on such components as seat trim, headliner, door panels, roof pillars and carpeting. In all, 23 different interior parts are made with eco-friendly materials. The Soul EV is the first Kia to use Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology for the instrument cluster that is brighter but consumes less energy. The heating and air condition-

ing system can be programmed for driver-only operation that stops air flow to the passenger side and rear of the car, thus cutting down dramatically on energy draw from the battery. Kia believes the Soul EV is the segment leader when it comes to the use of eco-friendly material. Powering the Soul EV is an 81.4 kilowatt (109 horsepower) electric motor producing 210 pounds per feet of torque that is linked to a high-capacity 27 killowat per hour lithium-ion polymer battery pack. Most batteries are usually planted upright behind the back seat. But, because it can be moulded, the Soul EV is shaped like a palette and goes under the floor for minimal cabin intrusion. For example, three can fit in the back seat and lose only 3.1 inches of legroom compared to the standard Soul. More to the point, the cargo area behind the second row seats is 532 litres, the same as the

standard Soul. The motor powers the front wheels through a single speed reduction gear set. It results in a zero to 100 kilomtre per hour sprint time of 11.4 seconds reaching a top speed of 145 kilomtetres per hour with a driving range of around 160 to 170 kilometres with 200 kilometres attained by Kia engineers in testing. Engineers were able to package the motor and systems while minimizing intrusion of the battery pack into the cabin, yet retaining a class-leading 200 Wh/kg battery cell energy density enabling the battery to store greater amounts of electric energy relative to its weight. Kia chose lithium-ion polymer batteries — compared to more commonplace lithium-ion batteries — because of their greater energy density with fewer parts and a simpler cell structure, lower cost production, greater potential for heat management and greater flexibility

in terms of packaging. To ensure crash safety, the battery features a ceramic-coated separator within the cell itself to protect the unit, as well as overcharge protection, which monitors electrical current and battery temperature. Soul EV owners can choose between two different driving modes — drive and brake — with the latter producing the most energy recuperation from the regenerative-braking system. Each of these driving settings are also available in a third special Eco-mode which extends the Soul EV’s driving range by optimizing the performance and energy consumption of the HVAC system and the electric motor. On a half-hour loop near the offices of Kia Canada, I started out with a range showing as 170 kilometres. Using brake and with the Ecomode also on, all I had to do was lift my foot off the accelerator pedal and the EV would slow dra-

matically as energy was harvested. But, when rolling, the EV was car-like but with noticeably quicker acceleration due to the torque being immediately available. After 20 minutes of taking advantage of brake, I was showing a range of 188 kilometres, which was surprising. Switching to drive for the highway, the EV accelerated smartly down the on-ramp and joining the flow of traffic was white-knuckle free. Coming up to highway speed, the EV, again, felt car like — except for the lack of engine noise. When I got to back to Kia, I had a range of 177 kilometres — 7 kilometres more than when I left. Because the Soul EV is next-tosilent in operation, there is a warning beep that sounds when it is in reverse and travelling at less than 20 kilometres per hour. One of the challenges to any EV is operating in the winter in Canada. XSee ELECTRIC B7

To this end, the Soul EV has a battery heating system designed to insulate and warm up the battery in order to minimize the adverse effects of sub-zero temperatures on battery charge.

$

The Soul EV has two charging ports — 120- and 240-volt — that are housed behind a panel at the nose and opened by a lever on the lower instrument panel. Charging times vary, but 4.5 hours is the norm for a 240-volt, with up to 24 hours

to fully charge a depleted battery using a 120-volt outlet. Prices won’t be announced until it goes on sale in late fall, but expect it to be competitive with the Nissan Leaf, currently the lost popular EV in the world, that has a starting price of $31,698.
