Ian Buemann drags the curser in a loop to form an ellipse. Stretching it down, the laptop screen shows half of a familiar shape. “No,” he says. The symmetry doesn’t align for the perfect heart-shaped design he wants, so he quickly deletes the image and starts again. The seven-year-old is designing a Mother’s Day pendant on 3D-printing software at the Big Little Science Centre. Once Ian is happy with his design, the printer will turn the digital pendant into a reality, layer-by-layer, as plastic chord is added a tenth of a millimetre at a time. Ian is the youngest attendee at the centre’s 3D-printing club. The group is intended for kids ages 10 and older, but Ian has no problem handling the software, navigating through the laptop and finally getting that perfect heart-shaped design. The software seems simple enough to anyone with a bit of tech savvy, but the centre’s executive director, Gord Stewart, sees that standard getting younger and younger. “Most of them don’t know a world without it,” he said. It’s part of the reason the centre is hosting lessons for youth on the emerging technology. “This is a new technology that kids need to know about,” Stewart said. So far, students have been able to take home personalized keychains, spinning tops and

cookie cutters made with help from independent 3D-printing education consultant John Bokla. Bokla began his company earlier this year in the Tournament Capital and has brought a printer to the centre in recent weeks. He sees the technology — and kids — as the future. “The long-term goal is to teach kids the skills of 3D-modelling,” he said, noting many prominent technology-based icons of today became successful before they were 25. While the 3D-printing technology was developed about 30 years ago, Bokla said it’s increasing in popularity because of patent expiration allowing mass production, along with continued decline in costs. He says the technology will sustainably feed innovation by allowing design prototypes to be developed on-site for testing. “This machine is going to democratize design,” Bokla said. “You’re going to start to see 3D-printing stores in local towns in three to five years.” He said a cellphone case could be made in an hour for 25 cents worth of material. And that’s only the beginning. Outside of Kamloops, the medical field is exploring the technology as it relates to human biology, including the printing of human organs. “They’ve printed a functional liver,” Bokla said. Homes are also being built from large-scale printers in China. There is also the potential for legal complications — namely, the production of guns. “With the good comes the bad,” Bokla said. For now, Kamloops youth will have the ability to test out the technology in coming weeks. The 3D Print Club meets Thursdays after school.

A Shuswap man alleged to have boasted about running B.C.’s cross-border drug trade after offering American authorities to roll on other smugglers will soon know his fate. Colin Martin’s extradition hearing began in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on Wednesday, May 7. Federal Crown prosecutor Andrew Majawa outlined the case against Martin, who lives in Malakwa. Court heard Martin, who went by the nickname Rolex, led a drugtrafficking ring that moved large quantities of marijuana, MDMA, cocaine, firearms and money between B.C. and Idaho using helicopters and encrypted BlackBerry Messenger conversations. Majawa said a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency investigation in 2008 and 2009 linked Martin to the operation, which resulted in numerous arrests on both sides of the border. Martin’s company, Gorge Timber, is alleged by American authorities to have leased two helicopters to move marijuana from B.C. to remote properties in northern Idaho

THRIFT STORE

HEROES

By Andrea B A d Klassen Kl STAFF REPORTER

Royal Inland Hospital Afternoon Auxiliary volunteers Merle Newman (left), Robyn Doerksen and Ella Ablett are heroes in the eyes of Barb Easterbrook (centre) after they came to her aid, calling 911 when Easterbrook went into anaphylactic shock while near the thrift store at 146 Victoria St. downtown. Says Easterbrook: “If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here.” Dave Eagles/KTW

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

ARB EASTERBROOK HAD NEARLY FINISHED CROSSING the Overlanders Bridge on her scooter when she felt the strange itching sensation in her mouth. “I could feel my lips go and I could see I was starting to swell in my face and I got itchy all over,” recalled Easterbrook, 66. For the second time in as many months, the North Shore resident was going into anaphylactic shock. As had been the case the previous month, nothing in particular seemed to have triggered the allergic reaction now starting to cut off her air supply as she manoeuvred her scooter off the bridge and into Riverside Park on the afternoon of April 16. With no cellphone, Easterbrook tried to think of a place to get help. The first to come to mind was the Thrift Seller near the corner of First Avenue and Victoria Street, operated by the Royal Inland Hospital Afternoon Auxiliary. “I just thought, ‘Oh, God, I’ve got to make it to town,” Easterbrook said. “All I could think about was getting to the thrift store.” Near the end of the path out of the park, she came upon a pair of men walking ahead of her. When she tried to speak to them, nothing came out. “I looked in the mirror on my scooter,” she said, “I could see my face was all swelled up.” Easterbrook kept going, past the men and out of the park. When she made it to the RIH thrift store, she just jumped off the scooter and ran inside. “I guess I looked weird, all swollen and red and covered in hives. I couldn’t get out what I wanted, but I think I tried to mouth ‘ambulance’ and they got it,” she said. Merle Newman was just wrapping up her morning shift when Easterbrook, a regular customer through the years, came in. “She was just shaking,” said Newman, who has volunteered at the store for 12 years. “I’m glad we were there to help.” Newman and fellow volunteers Ella Ablett and Robyn Doerksen acted quickly, finding Easterbrook a chair and calling 911, though they weren’t sure what to tell the dispatcher. The paramedics showed up soon after. “It was kind of scary,” Newman said. “We didn’t know whether she was going to make it, but we were glad to hear she did.” Easterbrook is grateful for the help and comfort Newman, Ablett and Doerksen provided as she waited for the ambulance to arrive. “If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here,” she said. “They just reacted so fast.” While she’s still not sure what caused either of her two allergic reactions, Easterbrook said she shouldn’t have to make any more runs through the park for medical care. After the second attack, doctors prescribed her an Epipen, an epinephrine autoinjector that delivers epinephrine for the treatment of anaphylaxis.

Council likes higher bus fares By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER

andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops city councillors like the idea of hiking the cost of a bus ride to $2.50 per trip, but will leave it to their successors — after the Nov. 15 civic election — to decide when and how to phase in higher rates for next year. At a workshop on Tuesday, May 6, council looked at a couple of options from BC Transit that would bring its fares in Kamloops in line with rates in similar-sized communities. Council doesn’t make final decisions at workshops. Mayor Peter Milobar asked staff to bring back a report on a fare hike next year in time to work it into the city’s 2015 budget. Right now, fares are a bit lower than average. A cash fare sits at $2.25, compared to an average of $2.40. The

city also offers a discount seniors’ fare of $1.75. The model most popular with councillors would move regular fares to $2.50 and seniors’ fares to $2.25, with an eye to eventually phasing out the lower fare in years to come. Regular monthly passes would jump to $60 from $53 and regular day passes to $6.25 from $5. The increases could add $289,700 to the city’s coffers, but engineering manager Deven Matkowski, currently filling in on the city’s transit file, warned an increase in fares will likely lead to fewer riders using transit the year after the hikes are implemented. BC Transit predicts rides could fall off by 137,100. Last year, riders took more than 3.4-million trips on city transit. The fare increase has the backing from most

of council but, when to roll out the fare remains up for debate. Coun. Ken Christian suggested April 1, 2015. Councillors Nelly Dever and Tina Lange suggested the city try to offset some of that disincentive to ride by rolling out fare hikes at the same time as its 2015 service expansion that will add 6,000 more hours of bus service in the city. “In my mind, we must increase fares,” Lange said, noting statistics from the city’s transportation arm show the cost of transit is outpacing increases in ridership, service and revenue-generation from fares. Matkowski said more-expensive fuel, tires and insurance, as well as increased costs from working with service contractor First Canada, have helped push transit costs to $12.7 million, as of last year. The city pays just

under half of transit costs. Coun. Donovan Cavers would also like to see the city try to make up some of its revenue by marketing its Pro Pass more aggressively. Cavers said the pass has only a few hundred users, but could solve parking problems at Royal Inland Hospital and benefit other large employers in the city. “It seems like it’s pretty abysmal uptake,” he said of Pro Pass-user numbers. Coun. Arjun Singh was concerned a fare hike may put the bus out of reach for the working poor in Kamloops. “I worry about leaving people on the side of the road, without any way to get around if we raise fares,” he said. He asked staff to study which users are likely to stop taking the bus if a fare hike goes ahead.

June 10 vote on TWU

www.prairiecoastequipment.com

Kamloops lawyers among those to cast ballots on Christian university’s law-school accreditation By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Lawyers in Kamloops will have their say in June whether a proposed law school at a Langley Christian university that requires students to abstain from sex outside marriage between a man and woman should be accredited in Canada. The B.C. Law Society meeting on June 10, at 12:30 p.m. at the Plaza Hotel will be linked via conference call to meetings in a dozen other B.C. cities. City lawyer Ken Walker was among the majority of benchers — lawyers elected and appointed to the self-regulating B.C. Law Society — to vote to accredit Trinity Western University’s new law school, which is slated to start accepting students in 2016. But, a Vancouver Island lawyer has challenged that decision and forced a special meeting and vote. Walker told KTW will wait to hear arguments from lawyers across B.C. If the motion against the accreditation passes, it could

persuade the provincial body to revisit the accreditation — or force a provincewide referendum of lawyers. “I therefore will be supporting TWU as a university teaching lawyers,” Walker said during the original debate by benchers last month. “However, my vote should not be taken as a vote favouring the controversial part of the covenant . . . “The Law Society of British Columbia is not a belief regulator. We are a conduct regulator and we will be regulating conduct and conduct that is discriminatory.” While cautioning he’s speaking only as an individual lawyer, Walker said he is doubtful he will hear new arguments during the June 10 debate that he didn’t already consider when he voted to accredit the law school. Micah Rankin, a facility member at Thompson Rivers University’s law school, said the debate presents is a conflict between “equality guarantees versus protection of religious practices. “We want to protect both

Kamloops Mounties looked east — way east — for their new operations officer. Insp. Tony Perry has been hired to replace outgoing Insp. Jennie Latham, who took a job with the national force in Ottawa. Perry, a 26-year veteran of the RCMP is stationed in Antagonish, N.S. A start date in Kamloops has not yet been determined.

rights. Sometimes you can’t have your cake and eat it.” Rankin is unsure how he will vote, saying it conflicts between his own values and his belief in protection of rights. “I wouldn’t want to teach at a school with a covenant like that. I don’t agree with it,” Rankin said. “But, I can’t say someone who holds those values wouldn’t be a good lawyer. That’s the difficulty I have.” Trinity Western University is expected to file a lawsuit challenging votes by law societies in Ontario and Nova Scotia against its accreditation. Another lawsuit has been filed in B.C., challenging the law school’s accreditation by the province of B.C. Trinity Western is pointing to a decision it won at the Supreme Court of Canada more than a decade ago. B.C.’s teachers’ college objected to the school’s education program that required students to sign an agreement not to engage in homosexual behaviour, among other acts it says are condemned by the Bible.

Latham became the Tournament Capital’s RCMP operations officer — effectively the second-in-command — in 2011, moving to Kamloops after spending time at the detachment in Sherwood Park, Alta. She replaced Yves Lacasse, who was inspector prior to moving into the role of detachment superintendent. In March 2012, Lacasse left the RCMP to join KGHM Ajax.

EFry conference here tomorrow By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

When Adrienne Montani gets up to speak at the annual Elizabeth Fry Society conference in Kamloops, her audience will be familiar with her message. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been sharing for years, Montani said, first as an advocate in children and youth programs and, for the past 13 years, as provincial co-ordinator with First Call: B.C. Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition. Montani said the fact the challenges donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change is frustrating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, there is no alternative,â&#x20AC;? she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an injustice and we can prevent it.â&#x20AC;? At the Friday, May 9, event at the Plaza Hotel downtown, Montani will talk about the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poverty report card and about the feminization of poverty as statistics show most single-parent families are headed by moms. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk about how the risk of being poor is a 50/50 proposition for those mom-led families and that this simple reality is not the fault of the mother, but the result of a labour market with low pay, with businesses not equipped or willing to accommodate moms who deal with child-care issues and with a gov-

ernment that continues to raise health-care premiums and claw back child-tax benefits even for families barely living above the poverty line. Montani will talk about government boasts of year-long maternity and paternity leaves and how they contrast with the reality that many new parents making minimum wage canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to go on employment insurance for that period of time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect storm of social policies and we need to ask, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What are the impacts on children, on parents?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Montani said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children feel their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stress. There is social exclusion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the birthday party because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford a present. Teens are excluded because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take part in sports because the equipment is too expensive or the costs are too high. All of this is preventable.â&#x20AC;?

Prime minister ignorant of role of Canada’s top justice

S

OME RANDOM MUSINGS about things going on in the country these days. • Might as well start at the top and the revelation our prime minister has no idea what Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin does. For example, Stephen Harper and his pet pit bull, Peter MacKay, as they refuse to give up their fight with the Supreme Court, don’t seem to know McLachlin is a member of the Privy Council, a group to which both of them also belong. MacKay, a lawyer by education, also doesn’t seem to know McLachlin is the head of the country’s judicial branch. Neither seems to be aware — although they should, since it has happened before — that, should Governor General David Johnston not be able to fulfil his duties, it would be McLachlin, in her capacity as deputy governor general, who would step in. In fact, all justices of the Supreme Court carry this title. McLachlin has already been called up on to just that, stepping in for then-governor general Adrienne Clarkson — in hospital for surgery — and, among other things, giving royal assent to the Civil Marriage Act in the country. Yet, Harper and MacKay continue to refer to her as “a sitting judge” as they criticize McLachlin for doing exactly what her job is when she advised them the appointment of Marc Nadon to

DALE BASS Street LEVEL join her on the Supreme Court broke all the rules that apply to filling those vacancies. • Sticking with the Ottawa crowd, iPolitics has reported that, even as the Harperites are expressing belated concerns about the use of temporary foreign workers in Canada, our own federal government is using them in many government departments. The online-journalism site reports five departments and one minister’s office have asked for permission to hire temporary foreign workers in the past five years. This is a program that many economic analysts and think-tanks are now saying has fuelled unemployment in the country as employers opt to hire from abroad at a low wage rate. Data released by federal Minister of Employment and Social Development Jason Kenney’s office, for example, has shown 375 temporary foreign workers were approved for jobs in Cape Breton in 2012 — even though that area

had a 1.75 per cent unemployment rate. Here in Kamloops, for those wondering about the impact on the River City, some in the trucking industry have expressed concern about the number of temporary foreign workers who are being hired to drive those rigs. • Moving bit more to the West, it’s important to stop in Toronto, home of the country’s other embarrassing political duo, Doug and Rob Ford, if for just a moment. What is more ridiculous — seeing Doug sitting in Rob’s mayoralty chair, with a piece of tape over the word “Rob” on the nameplate declaring that seat’s occupant the mayor or learning customs and border protection in the U.S. apparently suggested to Rob he wasn’t welcome in the U.S.? Some immigration experts have opined that, if this did happen to Rob — and our consulate-general in Chicago confirmed Rob Ford did choose to hop back on his private jet and head off elsewhere — it was likely because our neighbours don’t like to let suspected illegaldrug users into their country. It’s stories like this that make me glad our own mayor is, as he first rolled out when announcing his decision to run again, “not Earth-shattering, flashy” but just gets the job done. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @dalembass kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

Council’s decision is on the right track Kamloops city council’s decision this week to approve more than $200,000 in funding to get the legendary 2141 steam train back on track is a welcome one, indeed. Yes, times are tough and, yes, $200,000 is a lot of money. However, when one looks at that cash and the good it will do in bringing the historic train back to life, the conclusion can only be a nod of recognition for a job well done by council. The 2141 is more than a train. It is more than a part of history. It is, in fact, part of the fabric of Kamloops, an engine that roars to life in the summer, during Halloween and around the Christmas season, bringing families together, tying the community tighter. For newcomers to Kamloops, discovering the 2141 and riding along as Billy Miner and his outlaws rob the train can be the moment one feels like the Tournament Capital is home. For those whose kids are inching ever taller and more skeptical, memories of the tykes on the Ghost Train as they sat bravely in the face of the Headless Horseman are worth more than $200,000. For families battling the stress of the Santa season, a journey aboard the Christmas Train is like choo-chooing right back into Bedford Falls. The society that operates the beloved 2141 was caught in the wheels of bureaucracy and had to upgrade/fix the engine. When that is done, and the train is back on track, make sure to book a seat and experience for the first time — or yet again — the magic of something on which one cannot really put a price.

Editor: By far the worst road I have ever travelled is Westsyde Road. The second-worst road is the one connecting 10th Street to Southill Street on the North Shore.

WHEN DRIVING YOUNG FEELS OLD

Editor: There could be a worse road than Young Avenue in Kamloops â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but to experience this road is enough to think it is definitely a candidate for one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst roads. Young Avenue is located off Windbreak Avenue in Brocklehurst. It is a long street on which, every few feet just before leading to Windbreak Avenue,

there are cave-ins. Unless you drive at a crawl, they will jar your spine right up into your brain or smash the frame of your car and kill your shock absorbers. It appears that the cave-ins, or the majority of them, are caused by where the sewer system crosses the street from property to property. The pavement along the side of the road is broken off from the road where a severe slant forces the pavement to slide off to the side. There is some patchwork, but it has sunken down and has created deep dips, with edges that make a drastic bump when driven over. The most recent patchwork was in the late fall and it has

already sunken down. People were driving mostly on one side of the road to save their vehicles and themselves from damage. That one side of the road is only slightly better than the other. My friend, who picks me up in her truck, makes an effort to come from the other end of Young Avenue, off Schreiner Street, where the road is in slightly better condition. For her, though, it makes it a long way around to get to my place. By car, this road is a nightmare, but try driving it on an electric scooter chair. You will then know the meaning of OMG! I find the whole trip down this road a challenge of dodging

the worst dips, the big cracks and the slanting off the centre of the street. I have to weave from one side to the other, a dangerous thing to do, so I have to be ultravigilant about watching for cars coming and going. Now, to say that, in a car, it feels like your spine will be driven up into your brain may be an exaggeration, but, on the scooter, that is what it truly feels like. I think Young Avenue is a candidate for one of the worst roads in B.C. Of course, there may be worse roads, but horrible is bad enough â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially when it is a part of everyday living. Eileen Beaton Kamloops

A10 v THURSDAY, May 8, 2014

www.kamloopsthisweek.com

COVER PAGE STORY Colin Martin will soon learn whether the desire of U.S. law-enforcement officials will come to fruition. The Shuswap man is accused of running a major drug-smuggling ring, using helicopters to bring drugs into the United States from Canada. His extradition hearing may end today (May 8) in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops. Dave Eagles/KTW

U.S. wants Martin to stand trial in Seattle XFrom A1

Court heard Martin’s employees in the smuggling ring would communicate by BlackBerry Messenger using nicknames — Martin’s being “Counsellor.” Majawa called the evidence against Martin “powerful,” if not circumstantial. “It’s quite rare that there would be direct evidence to determine whether or not a person is guilty of conspiracy,” he said. “Mr. Martin leased the helicopters with the intention of furthering the objectives of the criminal group — which, of course, was smuggling drugs across the border.” Defence lawyer Eric Purtzki argued Leonard Ferris, who American prosecutors expect to be a key witness at Martin’s U.S. trial should Martin be extradited, had never even met his client. He said there is no evidence Ferris knew Martin because he only identified him as “Rolex” and “Counsellor.” “The evidence against Mr. Martin is insufficient,” Purtzki said. “The allegations are vague, incomplete and insufficient.” According to U.S. court documents, Ferris

was arrested on Feb. 21, 2009, while driving a car containing 83 kilograms of cocaine in Utah, en route to a meeting with one of Martin’s helicopters in Washington. Two days later, DEA agents met the helicopter when it arrived at a pre-designated location in northeast Washington state. The pilot, Samuel Lindsay-Brown, was arrested and the chopper was seized, along with an estimated $5-million worth of drugs it was carrying. Following that seizure, the court documents state, Martin was involved in lengthy BlackBerry Messenger conversations about the whereabouts of Lindsay-Brown and the drugs. The investigation was launched after an undercover DEA agent began discussions with one of Martin’s associates in Los Angeles about the purchase of MDMA, the documents state. In September 2009, according to the documents, Martin called the DEA office in Vancouver and offered “to provide information regarding drug trafficking into the United States.” The documents also state Martin boasted in

the fall of 2009 about controlling 70 per cent of the cross-border marijuana-for-cocaine trade in B.C. “Martin explained that he could identify other co-conspirators and direct law enforcement to drug loads so long as he was allowed to continue his drug business for 10 years and was assured that law enforcement would only arrest other people,” the document reads. The DEA did not accept that offer. In 2009, Ferris was handed a six-year prison term in Washington state. Ross Legge, who was with Ferris in the car when he was arrested, was sentenced to 10 years. Martin’s alleged drug-smuggling ring is also linked to the February 2009 death of Lindsay-Brown. The 24-year-old Nelson native hanged himself in a jail cell in Spokane after he was busted flying a helicopter containing a shipment of drugs — specifically, 400 pounds

of marijuana. In March, Martin pleaded guilty in a Salmon Arm courtroom to unrelated charges of production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking dating back to 2010. He is due back in court on May 29 to set a date for sentencing. In 2007, Martin was sentenced to serve two-and-a-half years behind bars after being convicted of Canadian charges stemming from another crossborder drug-smuggling ring. American prosecutors have charged Martin with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute. They want him to stand trial in Seattle and it’s up to B.C. Supreme Court Justice William Ehrcke whether he’ll be turned over to American authorities. The extradition hearing was slated to run three days, but is expected to wrap up today (May 8). Martin is not in custody.

MORTGAGE MATTERS Credit Score and Home Buying Part I Does living a debt-free lifestyle make you the best candidate for a mortgage? You manage your money well and you purchase only what you can pay cash for. You have no credit cards or loans of any kind! You must be what every lender dreams of when it comes to obtaining a mortgage, right? Well, not so fast… Let’s take a look at one of the key aspects of lending: your credit score. When applying for a mortgage, your credit score weighs heavily when it comes to the mortgage rates you will be offered, the lenders who will work with you or whether you will be denied in your search for a loan. In essence, it can make or break your mortgage application. By definition, a credit score is simply a measure of your proven habits of repaying debt. For that reason, you must repay something to have a positive score, like credit card payments, car payments and small bank loans to name a few. People who do not have or use credit cards and insist on paying cash for everything are often surprised when they are refused for a mortgage because they believe their habit of paying cash should reflect “good credit”. Credit scores are rated on a point system, ranging from 0 (no credit), to a maximum of 900 (perfect credit), with the general minimum credit needed for a mortgage sitting at around 600 points. A person who pays cash for all things will likely have a 0 credit score because they have zero history of repaying debt. So what does this mean to a first time homebuyer? Do your credit card repayment patterns reveal good things about you? As a rule of thumb, a person should use two credit cards regularly and pay them off each month to build a positive credit score. A repayment for a bill as little as $10 will build your score and produce a proven habit of repaying debt. There are two major credit score suppliers in Canada: Equifax and Transunion. Each has a credit education center for those who would like to do further reading: www.equifax.com/home/en ca • www.transunion.ca Equifax offers a free mailed copy of your credit report at www.equifax.com/contact_us/en_ca. Both these links are found under resources on my website www.mortgagebuilder.ca. Look for Mortgage Matters “Credit Score and Home Buying Part II” when I will examine several factors that lower credit score and boost credit score for those looking to maximize their score prior to a home purchase.

Airport seeing more travellers

DON’T WORRY, BE MCHAPPY Royal Inland Hospital Foundation CEO Heidi Coleman (left), Kamloops This Week photographer Dave Eagles and RIH Foundation major-gifts officer Julie Kimmel pose for a fun snapshot to raise funds for McHappy Day on Wednesday, May 7, at the Sahali McDonald’s. McHappy Day saw $1 from the purchase of a Big Mac, Happy Meal or hot McCafe drink go to help buy a heated bed for Caesarian-section deliveries in the Kamloops hospital’s operating room. Last year, McHappy Day raised $8 million across Canada, with the money going to various local charities in the cities and towns served by McDonald’s. KTW photo

The number of travellers passing through Kamloops Airport through April is ahead of last year’s pace by about 10 per cent. Through the end of April, the airport recorded 110,756 travellers, a 10.6 per cent increase over the 99,047 travellers who came and went between January and April 2013. In April, passenger counts were up by four per cent over statistics from April 2013. This year, 23,609 travellers used Kamloops Airport in April; last April, the doors welcomed 22,676 passengers. Airport manager Fred Legace said growth among travellers continued through April and was driven by Thompson

Booming demand leads Telus to bulk up its wireless network Telus will spend $12 million in Kamloops this year to expand its local 4G LTE wireless network, which it says is the world’s fastest wireless technology. The money will also be used to extend the reach of Telus’ Internet-based TV service, Optik TV and to increase available Internet speeds and connect more homes and businesses to highspeed Internet. “The demand for communications services is booming in Kamloops and this significant $12-million investment

means residents and businesses right here will have greater access to the services they depend on to conduct business and connect with friends and family across Canada,” said Telus Kamloops/Cariboo general manager Bert Braybrook. By the end of 2016, Telus’ investment in operations and infrastructure across the province since 2000 will exceed $40 billion, including the $75-million data centre on McGill Road in Kamloops the company opened this year.

Rivers University and Kamloops-Thompson school district student movements, along with strong corporate travel. “This is typically the time of year where we see the TRU international students return home for the summer and the SD73 students

begin their exchange programs,” Legace said. “While corporate travel normally declines in April, this year it remained strong through the month.” The year-to-date increase in travellers was helped by the Brier curling championship.

ESL classes cancelled, reinstated at TRU By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Two days before students arrived at Thompson Rivers University to learn English as a second language (ESL), their courses were cancelled. And, on the day the classes were to begin, the university rescinded the closure and opted to solve its issue without collapsing first-level instruction. On Friday, May 2, ESL faculty were told 17 sections of the course, 14 of them with teachers assigned, were being closed and students would be re-enrolled in higher-level courses. Students arrived to start the courses this week. The issue revolves around

class size, with a push by TRU administration to create larger classes. Christopher Seguin, TRU vice-president advancement, said at the time “the cancellations only apply to class sizes under 10. We can’t run classes this small, academically or financially.” Tom Friedman, president of the TRU Faculty Association, said he met with university provost Uli Scheck early on Monday, May 5, and is happy with the results. While he couldn’t discuss the details before meeting with the affected faculty, Friedman said Scheck agreed the decision had been hasty and was the result of “miscommunication.”

Buyers of a specific type of child car seat are being warned of a safety concern with the product. The product is the 618 Fisher Price Safe Voyage Grow-with-Me child car seats, model FP3000C, manufactured by Team-Tex on Aug. 22, 2013. There may be a problem with the

Friedman said first-level courses will still be offered in a different configuration. On Monday, before the meeting, Friedman indicated the union would file a grievance as the decision was “a straight violation of TRU policy.” Pre-requisites for courses are determined by the departments providing the instruction. From there, they are sent to the university’s educational program committee for discussion. If they are approved at that level, they go to the university senate for final approval. “These pre-requisites are in place and they’re being ignored,” Friedman said at the time. They exist so students are in the appropriate levels.”

Police Week begins with Falkland man in show at Sahali Mall

Kamloops emergency crews will kick off Police Week on Saturday, May 10, with a display outside Sahali Mall. Local RCMP will be showing off their police helicopter and rollover simulator, while representatives from city bylaw enforcement, B.C. Sheriffs, Kamloops Fire Rescue, Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement, B.C. Ambulance, ICBC and Victim Services will be on hand. Police will be available to answer questions about their work. The display will be set up in the southwest corner of the mall parking lot near the old Scotiabank location. Kamloops RCMP Const. Jason Epp said it’s an event police look forward to. “It’s more of an informal setting where members of the community can come out,” he said. “We can showcase what we do in the community.” The display will be at the mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Kamloops men arrested Two Kamloops men may face criminal charges after being arrested at the scene of a burglary in Salmon Arm earlier this week. Salmon Arm RCMP say the pair was found at a break-in in progress at the Salmon Arm Industrial Park on Monday, May 5, at 2 a.m. Mounties say they arrived to find the two men in the process of stealing various items from local business.

REMEMBERING FARLEY MOWAT By Allison Jones and Victoria Ahearn

Farley Mowat on the cover of one of his most beloved books, Never Cry Wolf. The iconic Canadian author has died at 92.

CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Novelist and naturalist Farley Mowat was fondly remembered this week for captivating generations of schoolchildren with books such as Owls in the Family’ and Never Cry Wolf, and for his legacy as a tireless defender of the environment who “spoke for whales and seabirds, for tadpoles and mosses.’’ “He was possessed of a ferocious talent, able to write stories that provoked laughter, tears and action,’’ Green Party Leader Elizabeth May said in a statement after news broke of Mowat’s death on Tuesday, May 6, at age 92. “We owe him more than I can say.’’ Prime Minister Stephen Harper also issued a statement, saying Mowat “will be remembered as a passionate Canadian.’ Mowat died in his hometown of Port Hope, Ont., his assistant Mary Shaw-Rimmington told the Canadian Press. The internationally acclaimed author was an “absolutely delightful person’’ who had “strong opinions that he would fight for to the death if he had to,’’ said friend Stephen Smith, who learned of the death from Mowat’s wife, Claire. “A highly, highly principled man, extremely generous with his time and his wealth,’’ Smith added. “Just a gem, a diamond in the rough.’’ There was no word on a cause of death. “He hadn’t been very well. It had been a tough winter, but everybody had a tough winter in southern Ontario,’’ Smith said. “But, it had been particularly tough for him. He wasn’t very well. He was quite old. “He had various issues, as people in their 90s usually do.’’ From the time he was 13, Mowat was fiercely dedicated to writing about the natural world. As a young teen, he started a magazine called Nature Lore and had a column in the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

He went on to publish 45 books, many based on his own adventures and travels. Though many were written for adults, they had wide appeal and were frequently taught in schools. Mowat said he was lucky to be able to combine his two passions, writing and nature, calling the latter “the only subject I really want to write about.’’ “I often found he was one of the Canadian writers you could always mention and everybody would know his work,’’ said Howard White, publisher of Douglas & McIntyre, which took over Mowat’s books about three years ago and is reprinting his major works. “It was due to that brilliant storytelling talent that he had, so it was never just a Canadian story, never just a First Nations story, never just an environment story. It was a story — a capital ‘S’ story that anybody anywhere could relate to.’’ Throughout his life, Mowat was adamant that humans learn to live in harmony with the natural world. “It’s a matter of survival,’’ he told the Canadian Press in a 2006 interview. “Either we learn to do this or we cease to exist. “We have no Godgiven right to survive forever. We have screwed up so badly in so many ways so obviously that only utterly stupid species would consider that we have much of a future as things stand.’’ Never Cry Wolf is said to have changed the way people saw wolves; after the Russian version was published, the government there banned the killings of one of Mowat’s favourite creatures.

Barbara Stephenson, retired CEO of Port Hope Public Library who knew Mowat, recalls the book inspiring her to do a project on wolves in elementary school. “I feel for me growing up, he was one of the first authors that highlighted our country, talked about Canadians, [with] very Canadian settings and about the nature of our country and the environment,’’ she said. The book, which was based on Mowat’s experiences studying wolves in the North — and became a film in 1983 — was not without controversy. The May 1996 issue of now-defunct Saturday Night magazine featured an article by John Goddard titled A Real Whopper, accusing Mowat of exaggerating key facts in the book, such as how long he actually spent studying wolves in the North and if he visited an Inuit camp. Mowat later issued a retort, saying Goddard “consistently misses

the truth behind these ‘facts.’’’ Mowat was born in Belleville, Ont., on May 12, 1921. The son of a librarian, he grew up in Windsor, Ont., and Saskatoon. He studied at the University of Toronto and served in the Second World War from 1940 to 1945. In 1949, after spending two years in the Arctic, he began his career as a prolific writer of works have since been translated into more than 20 languages in more than 60 countries. Never one to shy away from controversy, Mowat was outspoken about many environmental and social issues. He called Canada’s treatment of aboriginals “abominable,’’ said the seal hunt was “perhaps the most atrocious single trespass by human beings against the living world that’s taking place today’’ and said hunts in general were “symbolic of the massive destruction that we’ve visited upon life.’’ Although Mowat felt the struggle to preserve nature and wildlife was an ongoing one, he said: ``I could honestly say I’ve fought the good fight.’’

No anti-abortion candidates By Joan Bryden

CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau said opponents of abortion need not apply to run for the federal Liberal party in the next election. And, if they do apply, the Liberal leader said, they’ll be weeded out during the vetting process for nomination applications. “As a party, we are steadfast in our belief . . . that it is not for any government to legislate what a woman chooses to do with her body — and that is the bottom line there,’’ Trudeau said. “I have made it clear that future candidates need to be completely understanding that they will be expected to vote pro-choice on any bills.’’ Exceptions will be made, however, for incumbent opponents of abortion who became MPs before the party officially adopted a pro-choice stance, such as Toronto MPs John McKay and Judy Sgro. Their beliefs will be “respected to a certain extent,’’ Trudeau said. “But, our position as a party is we do not reopen that debate.’’ Trudeau revealed the party’s new hard line on

abortion on Wednesday, May 7,one day before the annual “March for Life’’ in which thousands of abortion opponents are expected to descend on Parliament Hill. In the past, Liberal MPs have been among those who have addressed the March for Life crowds. Opponents of abortion have traditionally formed a strong, vocal minority in the Liberal caucus, although their ranks have thinned considerably over the last two elections as the caucus shrank overall. Until two years ago, the Liberals did not have a party position on abortion, considering it a matter of conscience that should be left to each individual. However, at their 2012 national convention, delegates for the first time approved a resolution that explicitly endorsed a woman’s right to choose whether to have an abortion — adopting the same position long held by the NDP. Trudeau said the evolution of the party position was cemented last year when Liberals “chose a resolutely prochoice leader with over 80 per cent of the support of membership.’’

Abortion is just one issue on which would-be candidates’ views are vetted during the party’s so-called green-light process for nomination applicants. Their views on same-sex marriage and the Charter of Rights are among the other issues canvassed, Trudeau said. “We make sure that the people who are stepping forward are consistent with the Liberal party as it is now, as it stands under my leadership and under the feedback we’re getting from Canadians across the country.’’ Trudeau’s decision to bar abortion opponents from seeking Liberal nominations brings the party full circle from 1992, when party members gave then-leader Jean Chretien the power to appoint candidates. That power was deemed necessary to thwart a group that called itself “Liberals for Life.’’ The group had taken over a number of Liberal riding associations in which it hoped to elect staunch opponents of abortion to carry the party banner in the 1993 election. Over time, Chretien

used the power for a variety of purposes, including to protect incumbents, appoint star recruits and increase the percentage of female candidates. For his part, Trudeau has said he won’t use his power to appoint candidates, promising to allow open, democratic nomination contests in every riding. But, he’s using the vetting process for nomination applicants to weed out abortion opponents and others considered unsuitable. Trudeau was initially stumped when asked whether he’d allow Liberal MPs such as McKay to vote freely should an abortion bill come before the House of Commons. “Well, it’s a tough one because one of the things that’s a strength of the Liberal party is that we draw in voices from right across the country and on a range of perspectives,’’ he said. Eventually, he added: “We will see what happens . . . when that issue comes up. “My preference is that we not be engaging in a discussion of abortion.

CN will pay $17K as a result of wildfire By Tim Petruk

STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest court has rejected an appeal from the provincial government seeking a quarter-million dollars in lost timber revenue from CN Rail after sparks from a train ignited a massive wildfire west of Kamloops in 2005.

On July 29, 2005, the braking mechanism of a CN train in the Ashcroft area sparked a blaze, initially burning a nearby hillside. Provincial officials responded with ground firefighters, air tankers and helicopters. The fire was believed to have been contained, but got away from crews

the following day and quickly grew to cover 40 square kilometres. By provincial calculations, nearly $340,000 worth of mature timber was destroyed in the fire and the final firefighting bill came in at just under $5.7 million. In 2008, CN was handed steep fines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; $11,000 for violations

and more than $250,000 to cover 75 per cent of the lost timberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value. CN appealed the fines, based on the fact timber prices fell dramatically between the time of the fire and the time the lost timber was assessed, nearly a year later. The rail company successfully argued the stumpage rate should have

been calculated based on the timberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value at a future date, when it might have been harvested, rather than prices at the time of the fire. According to CN, the value of the lost timber at the time of the assessment was just $6,252.50. The Forest Appeals Commission sided with the rail company, but

TRU invites you to learn how it finances Kamloopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; university

The public is invited to learn more about how Thompson Rivers University finances its $170-million-plus institution at what is billed as a discussion on Thursday, May 15, at 1 p.m. in the Irving K. Barber Centre at the Brown House of Learning. The session will address the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to change its budget methodology and how the new system will work within TRUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new strategic priorities.

A press release announcing the public invitation said TRU has been working on its budget methodology since October and wants to create a new one based on new guiding principles that include: â&#x20AC;˘ Linking resource allocation to strategy; â&#x20AC;˘ A process that is transparent, deliberate and consultative; â&#x20AC;˘ Sustainability; â&#x20AC;˘ Risk mitigation;

â&#x20AC;˘ Entrepreneurship, innovation and efficiency; â&#x20AC;˘ Supporting a common TRU; â&#x20AC;˘ A process that is simple to understand and administer.

ZONING BYLAW AND BUSINESS LICENCE AND REGULATIONS BYLAW AMENDMENTS PUBLIC NOTICE c)

The Council of the City of Kamloops hereby gives notice that it will hold a Public Hearing: TIME: PLACE:

Location:

502 MacKenzie Avenue, as shown on the following map:

May 13, 2014, at 7:00 pm City Hall Council Chambers (7 Victoria Street West, Kamloops, BC)

to consider the following proposed amendments to City of Kamloops Zoning Bylaw No. 5-1-2001 and Business Licence and Regulations Bylaw No. 9-60: 1.

Location:

125 and 131 Beach Avenue and 206 Leigh Road, as shown on the following map:

Victoria took that decision to B.C. Supreme Court, where a judge sided with CN in 2012 because of the fact there were no licences for loggers in the area at the time of the blaze. The Crown then took its argument to the B.C. Court of Appeal but, on Thursday, May 1, a three-judge panel ruled

in favour of the rail company, saying the Forest Appeals Commission was acting â&#x20AC;&#x153;reasonablyâ&#x20AC;? when it agreed to calculate stumpage based on lower timber prices. The rail company was awarded legal costs in fighting the appeal, but still has to pay $11,000 in fines and $6,252.50 for the burned timber.

FAITH

Learning godly discipleship out of motherhood

A

N UPRIGHT woman is a precious jewel. A godly and virtuous woman is an enduring treasure. The Old Testament book of Proverbs, chapter 31, devotes a section in praise of women, probably because men see to their own plaudits sufficiently well. The person described in the passage is at once a woman, a wife and a working mother. What qualities mark this woman and set her apart from the rest of the society? Her personal worth (vs. 10-12, 22-23, 25). Her appearance and demeanor show selfrespect. She inspires and enforces profound respect from her husband. Her practical works (vs. 13-21,24,27). She works eagerly, spends wisely, deals

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH profitably, serves charitably, provides amply and manages ably. Her prudent words (v. 26). We find her instructing in love and controlling her lips. Her profound wealth (vs. 28-31). It rests on: (a) her children’s witness; (b) her husband’s praise; and, (c) ultimately, on God’s estimate of her. The spiritual value of women’s work has been given little credence in Western society. Men are still often seen as more capable of philosophical reflection,

while women are tied to earth in the messy physical work of childbearing and raising them. But, mothering is not only about folding hands and closing eyes. As the daily life of a mother is more physical and immediate, so is her experience of God. Changing a hundred diapers each week cultivates endurance. Crankiness can nurture quick forgiveness. Exhaustion calls for humility and community. And, best of all, babies themselves provide unlimited chances to live in gratitude and joy. The mother’s ability to love is exceeded only by God’s love itself. Her love grows with her children and it is impossible to tell the success or failure of her children by her love. There are no depths to which a child can fall that would diminish

her love and no heights of success a child can achieve that would increase it. Her love is protective, tender, consistent, understanding, forgiving, unchanging, unselfish, contagious, comforting and everlasting. Practical conventional discipleship, when they are able to cultivate, prepares them to simply practise the “presence of God” (cf. Brother Lawrence) in seasons of life filled with disorder. The Benedictine rule describes its purpose as “seeking the grace of God with the help of many brothers.” The spirituality of mothers with smaller children looks little like that of a monk, but they seek the same grace. Only they do it with the help of their one or multiple kids. And though their spiritual lives are somewhat impoverished for

some years, they can still feel rich. They can see a spiritual director, read the Bible, enjoy solitude again as soon as they get the chance. But, perhaps for a few years, they may have to practice spiritual “un-disciplines.” But still, divine wisdom for busy moms is not out-of-reach and is readily available. As Apostle James instructed mothers, fathers, and all: “If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God who gives generously to all . . . and it will be given to you.” A real-life case in point, filed thousands of years ago in the Old Testament book of 1 Kings, foresees no need of a university education. The true story goes: Two new mothers came to King Solomon’s court, pleading for an answer to their dilemma.

Soon after birth, one of their babies died during the night, probably from suffocation. The baby’s mother crept into the other woman’s room and took her living infant, leaving the still body of her own child in the other woman’s bed. When the mother woke up, she discovered her baby had been switched and the dead child left in its place. She found the mom who made the switch and a verbal fight followed, ending with a visit to the king for his decision. The guilty mom would not own up to the truth. Solomon listened to the women’s accusations, then made his decision: “Cut the living child in two and give half to one and half to the other.” A very wise king, indeed! Sure enough, the real

mother was horrified and offered to give up the baby rather than see him die. The guilty mom could care less. Her heartless response may seem unbelievable to us: “Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!” Solomon knew the real mother would speak up, so he promptly awarded the baby to her. Some mothers today might feel like your child must have been switched at birth, especially when they challenge your authority or decision. That’s when you need a healthy dose of wisdom. And you can get it from the book of all wisdom — the Bible — and its author, the Holy Spirit. Just feel free to access them.

Niel Ernst Hansen Dresen has passed away, his light going out on April 14th, 2014 at 11:01 AM, in Burnaby, B.C.

Rhodes Sept 13, 1942 ~ Nov 9, 2013

Pre-deceased by his parents, Marie and Karl Hansen Dresen, brother Esbern, sisters Eleanor Krogh and Ellen McDougall, and his son Joel. Niel is survived by sons Neil, Ken, Ross and daughter Angela, his grandchildren Jeremy, Katrina, Harlen and Erik, and great grandchildren Kelly, Aidan and Bria. Born July 22nd, 1922 near Wayne, Alberta, he was the second of four surviving children born to immigrants from Denmark. Speaking Danish as a boy, and only learning English at the age of six, Niel had a dual-patriotism that embraced the old, Denmark, and the new, Canada. He had a lifelong love of laughter, joking, word play and music. Swept up by World War II and crossing the North Atlantic as a depth charge man on Canadian corvettes, Niel in peacetime worked from the Lakehead in Eastern Ontario, through the Prairie Provinces to the B.C. Coast and Vancouver Island, as rodman, surveyor and engineer. He was City Engineer in Courtenay, B.C., the town of Merritt, and also the district of Valleyview before its amalgamation into Kamloops; after that he sold water mains and sewer systems to towns, villages and cities throughout B.C. He retired in Kamloops until his last three years, when he moved to the coast to be closer to his family. Niel will be remembered in a Memorial to be held in the Lakewood Room at the Trout Lake Community Centre in Vancouver, B.C., on Saturday May 10th, 2014 at 4:00 PM.

Edwin Alder Harold Weddell 1922 ~ 2014

A partnership of 67 years was transformed in the early hours of Saturday May 03, 2014 with the death of the senior partner, Edwin (Ted) Weddell. Ted was born in Kelowna General Hospital, July 31, 1922, oldest son of Edwin (Bud) Weddell QC and Katherine Bliss. Ted joined the army at the age of 17 and served overseas with the British Columbia Regiment (Duke of Connaughtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Own Rifles) for the five years of the Second World War with service primarily in Belgium and Holland. Ted returned to Kelowna in 1945 and completed his high school diploma at Kelowna Senior High School. It was here he met Betty Rutherford. The couple was married in December of 1947 at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and All Angels Church. Ted obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree at Trinity College, Toronto University in 1951 and his teaching certificate at Vancouver Normal School after which he was hired by the Vancouver School Board and for some years taught at John Oliver High School. Underpinned by his commitment to the Church, teaching became Tedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifelong profession with three of his six children following in his footsteps. The couple has five children; Michael (Dianne), Murray (Carla), Sheila (Harald), Christopher, (Susan), and Geoffrey (Debbie). Eldest son Bruce died in infancy. Family and friends will gather to celebrate Tedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life on Friday, May 9 at 2:00 pm at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cathedral, 360 Nicola Street, Kamloops, B.C. The Very Rev. Louise Peters will officiate. Ted found much pleasure and comfort in the love and respect of his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchild. In retirement Ted devoted time and attention to Kamloops Lodge No. 10 as well as the completion of his memoirs, The Life of Ted. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Kamloops Adult Learning Society, Senior Information Centre, North Hills Mall, 700 Tranquille Rd., Kamloops. B.C. V2B 3H9 would be appreciated.

A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Butterfly Party of Remembranceâ&#x20AC;? will be held on Saturday, May 10th at the Desert Gardens, 540 Seymour St., Kamloops, at 1:00 PM

Jo yc e B ai l e y, (nee Johnson), slipped away January 3, 2014 to join her husband, Lloyd, in heaven. She was eighty-nine. Joyce was born in Darlington, England to George and Lillian Johnson. She met and married Lloyd Bailey while he was stationed near Darlington with the RCAF during World War II. Joyce arrived in Montreal, Quebec via Halifax as a war bride. Joyce and Lloyd were married for sixty-nine years. As was typical of their generation Joyce was a stay at home mom; however, she was always active in the community, especially her church community. It seemed that whatever she joined Joyce became the chairperson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the alter guild and the ladies guild at church, and a Brownie Leader. Joyce and Lloyd hosted many social events in their home with food and dancing. Joyce and the family spent summer vacations at their cottage in upper New York State. Joyce and Lloyd moved from Montreal to Kamloops in 1984 to be near their children and grandchildren. Joyce is survived by her two children, Garth Bailey and Karen Sweetzir; grandchildren Ross Sweetzir, Janine Judge, Paul and Adam Sweetzir; Alexander and Matthew Bailey; and great-grandchildren Quinn and Colin Sweetzir, Holly and Errol Judge, and Natalie Sweetzir. A memorial service will be held in Kamloops on May 10th at 11:00 a.m. at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cathedral, Kamloops, B.C.

The Angel On Your Shoulder By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

Frances Leah Reeves 1931 ~ 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom Frances Leah Reeves of Kamloops, BC, on May 1, 2014 at 82 years of age with her family by her side. She is survived by her children Brian (Jo-Anne) Reeves of Kamloops, BC, Kathy (Keith) Manning of Kamloops, BC, Max Ames of Kamloops, BC, Terri (Don) Patzer of Coquitlam, BC, Mike Reeves of Coquitlam, BC, Bev Graham of Kamloops, BC, and Wendy Reeves of Coquitlam, BC. She also leaves to cherish her memory 11 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, her brother Stan (Coleen) Johns and, nephew Joe Johns and niece Jen (Kipp) Henschel. Frances was predeceased by Benjamin Reeves, Cole Manning and her parents Fred and Vesta Johns. She was born May 31, 1931 in Calgary, Alberta. Mom spent her childhood days on the family farm in Dawson Creek riding horses with her dad, baking bread and pies with her mom and watching her baby brother compete in rodeos. She married in 1950 and by the age of 28 she had seven children. Early on mom took in daycare children to help support the family (apparently seven children were not enough). Trained as a secretary, mom eventually went back to work as a conveyance secretary and worked for various law firms throughout her career. Through her work she found a great love of the industry and was proud of the buying and selling savvy skills she acquired. Mom retired in the early 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and spent the first few years of her retirement back in Dawson Creek enjoying quality time with her parents and her brother. After the passing of her parents she found great joy in travelling the province and spending time with her family. Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest loves in life were her family. Her face lit up when one of her children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren came to visit that she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen in a while. Mom led a good life and expected those she loved to do so like wise. Forever in our hearts-we will miss you mom! A Celebration of Life will take place from 1:00 to 4:00 pm on Saturday, May 31st, 2014, at Desert Gardens at 540 Seymour Street. A very special thank you to all the caring staff and nurses at the Royal Inland Hospital and all the wonderful staff at the Bedford Manor. Memorials donations may be made to the Bedford Manor or the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation.

Blossoming student, shrivelling tumour By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

NGUS IS DYING — and Madison Egli can’t wait to see him go. The 16-year-old NorKam secondary student spoke with KTW before her seventh dose of chemotherapy on Friday, May 2, and said she’s ready to be rid of the unwelcome visitor responsible for turning her life upside down since Christmas. Madison has braved more than half her scheduled treatments — she is to have 12 — since being diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in January. The results have been astounding. Doctors told Madison last month the 15-centimetre tumour that once dominated her chest cavity, the cancerous mass she named Angus that was pushing so hard against her insides that it dislocated a few of her ribs, is between 90 and 95 per cent dead. That was after just her fourth treatment. Now, with seven of 12 doses administered, she’s hoping the results will be even more profound for her next scans. Madison’s journey has been a difficult one, with plenty of ups and downs along the way. But, the Westsyde native said she feels fortunate for how things have unfolded since her diagnosis. She believes she has now turned a corner and her life is starting to get back to normal. Not that it will ever be exactly the same. “I don’t think life will ever get quite back to normal because it’s such a big thing,” Madison said. “But, at the same time, I feel like, after you experience such a big ordeal, I don’t think you want it necessarily go back to the same because you experience so much and you learn so much. “It’s just a life-changing experience. It would be weird to go back to the exact

same lifestyle you had.” A lot has changed for Madison since she first appeared in KTW’s Hardcourt Heart series. She recently got her first wig. Madison still has hair, but months of chemo has made it thin. The wig, which was made from a generous hair donation not unlike the one she made a few months ago, is blonde, and her hair again falls past her shoulders. She no longer has a PICC Line — the peripherally inserted central catheter that once ran inside her body, from her right biceps to her heart, to deliver her chemo. She’s now using a venous access device (VAD), which resembles a watch face, just under

the skin of her chest, in which a needle is inserted for drug administration. The VAD gives her the ability to be more active without fear of it ripping out, as was the worry with the PICC line. Madison has been taking advantage of her renewed freedom, lifting weights and going for runs, swimming and riding her bike. She’s also back in the gym with her coach, Lindsey Karpluk, practising for next season’s run with the NorKam Saints basketball team. The International Baccalaureate student said her experience with cancer has forced her to grow up quicker than she may have other-

wise, but she also feels — perhaps surprisingly — fortunate for the experience she has had. “You never wish cancer upon anyone, but I’ve had a positive experience considering,” Madison said. The teen was diagnosed with a very treatable form of the disease, she has reacted well to chemotherapy and she didn’t require surgery. “Overall, it’s been pretty positive — my parents would say differently, it’s really stressful for them — but I just want to beat it and so I kind of have this invincible outlook, in the sense that I ignore the stress, almost, and I just focus on doing my job and plowing through. “Overall, I’ve met some lifelong friends and I’ve gained experience and knowledge and there’s just so much I’ve gained that I wouldn’t have, without cancer,” she said. Madison is careful in her description of her last few months. By no means has it been a glamorous part of her life, she said, and she doesn’t want it to sound like battling cancer hasn’t been difficult. She tries to remain positive, though, just like the other cancer survivors she has met. Her bout with the disease has

taught her a lot about herself — especially the strength she has at times like this — and has given her a new appreciation for life. She has also been shown the kindness of others. Despite countless doctors’ appointments and sick days, Madison has managed to keep up with schoolwork, with the help of friends and teachers. She is still on track to bike in the Ride2Survive in June with her uncle, who has already surpassed his fundraising goal of $3,000. She has received generous gifts and words of support from the Kamloops community and, two weeks ago, she received an anonymous, hand-made card from someone who had read her story and was wishing her well. Most importantly, though, Madison is taking Angus down. “Overall, it has been really good,” she said. “You get to find out who your friends are. You get to see the great sides of so many people. So many people come out of the woodwork to show their love for you and to cheer you on. “I don’t know if I’d go back, knowing what I’ve gained now and knowing the outcome is all OK and it’s a fairly short experience, hopefully. “I don’t think I’d change it. It’s weird.”

Finishing on top

Despite losing their final two regularseason games, the TRU WolfPack baseball team finished their Canadian Collegiate Baseball Conference season atop the league, with a 17-11 record. The CCBC playoffs begin today (May 8) in Lethbridge. The WolfPack fell in back-to-back games on the weekend, losing 7-3 to the Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners 7-3 and the Okanagan College Coyotes 1-0.

Representing Canada

Brad Gunter of the TRU WolfPack men’s volleyball team will again play for Canada this summer as he suits up for the senior B men’s national team. The 6-foot-6 right side made the team following a four-day selection camp in Gatineau, Que., which ended on Tuesday, May 6. Fifty-eight players were at the tryout. “Making this team is another step toward playing for the senior A team,” Gunter said. “It also means that I will be helped financially and will be doing something I love this summer instead of working in a non-sports related job.”

Dogs lead pack

The Kamloops RiverDogs are atop the midget AAA B.C. Minor Baseball Association ranks heading into weekend play

on Vancouver Island. Kamloops is playing doubleheaders against Victoria, on Saturday, May 10, and Chilliwack, on Sunday, May 11. The Dogs moved their record to 9-1 with three wins in Kamloops on the weekend, sweeping a doubleheader against Cloverdale and splitting games against Chilliwack.

Camp invitees have been divided into two teams, with Seibel, Semchuk, Kneen, McDonald and Dick suiting up for Team Bruins. Caller will don the Team Penguins jersey.

The Titans will host either Penticton or Salmon Arm in the semifinal at Kamloops Rugby Club (KRC) on Monday, May 12. Game time is 3:30 p.m. Two teams from the Okanagan advance to provincials, so earning a berth the regional

will be played at KRC on May 15. Scoring tries for South Kam in the game

final would be enough to see South Kam through. The Okanagan final

against NorKam were Simon Fortier (2), Wes Behrman, Wyatt Henry, Matt Blackwell,

Morgan paddling through pain STAFF REPORTER

adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

It has been a rough few weeks for Zach Morgan of the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club (KCKC). “Hard, it’s been hard,” he said. “It’s been lots of training, hard training and, when you’re training, you hurt so much that you wish you’d get sick — and then you get sick and you want to be training.” On top of his difficult practice schedule, Morgan has been dealing with health problems. He is back in Kamloops after eight weeks away from home, training in Florida and Georgia with Canada’s junior and senior canoe teams in preparation for his upcoming races. The 18-year-old Kamloops product will compete in the National Team Sprint Trials 2 in Dartmouth, N.S., on May 31 and June 1, vying for a spot on the Canadian junior team for the International Canoe Federation Junior and U23 World Championships in Szeged, Hungary, in July. After six gruelling weeks of training in Florida, he was headed

to Georgia to work with the senior national team when he came down with the flu. Morgan was sick for nearly the entire stay with the senior team — about two weeks — and missed out on the opportunity to see how he stacked up against the nation’s best paddlers. Then, just as he was feeling healthy enough to again begin training and racing, Morgan hurt himself in a freak accident in Georgia. He was lying on a wooden dock and rolled over, only to be impaled by what he called “a massive sliver.” The sliver went into his upper thigh, a few inches deep, and more than an inch of wood broke off inside his leg — it had to be cut out by doctors. The wound remains open, a pencil-sized hole, in an attempt to ward off infection. Morgan rested for a little less than a week and is now back training on Shumway Lake, despite still limping with pain. “Training has been a bit rough,” the South Kamloops secondary grad told KTW. “I’m still going into the trials really confident about training. I’ve got a month left to really put my nose to

the grindstone and step it up a bit more. “I’m going into trials a little bit nervous, but really excited.” Despite the setbacks, the Kamloops canoeist is staying committed. Making it to the junior world championships has been a lifelong goal of Morgan’s and the Kamloops canoeist is aiming for his training to peak as he reaches Dartmouth. He’ll find out immediately afterwards if he will be travelling to Hungary with Canada and embarking on four weeks of training in preparation. Morgan said making the junior world championship team would help him bridge the gap between the junior and senior programs, opening doors for him at the senior level. Training with Stan Marek at the KCKC, Morgan will be doing 100 kilometres of high-intensity paddling this week before doing 200 kilometres each of the next two. His final week before the trials will be more relaxed, allowing him to recover before racing. “It’s a lot of paddling, a lot of time on the water,”

Morgan said. The last few weeks have certainly taken their toll on the defending C1 100metre national champion. “It’s not always pleasant, but not all aspects of it are going to be fun,” he said. “You’ve just got to take the fun moments and enjoy them and take the practices that you enjoy and enjoy them. Just get through the bad practices and focus on improving through them.” Morgan’s commitment to his training, now and in the offseason, has yielded the results he needs. He had a high-water mark season in 2013. The Kamloops Sports Council named him the male athlete of the year at the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame awards banquet in April. “Looking at the past, seeing Dylan Armstrong, Kelly Olynyk and a lot of the other athletes from Kamloops that have gone on to really awesome things, it’s really cool to be named on the same plaque as them,” Morgan said. “I’ve got to just keep working hard and keep working toward the goals I have.”

Arts funding available for schools

Roman Danylo will be in Kamloops on Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8, joined by three other improv actors and starring in the Comic Strippers.

LUSTING FOR LAUGHS By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

R

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

OMAN DANYLO WANTS TO MAKE one thing clear â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to see any horrible thongs or anything like that,â&#x20AC;? at the Comic Strippers live improvisation show this weekend at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creator said the fear is audience members will expect theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing real strippers when they attend the parody. The four improv actors wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taking it all off, but the men in their mid-40s will comically portray scenes typical of a male stripper show, including pole dancing, shower scenes and Danylo said â&#x20AC;&#x153;something with ping pong balls that you have to see to believe.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty quickly people seem to be on board with the irony,â&#x20AC;? Danylo said. He has been performing improv for 25-or-so years, having appeared on Just for Laughs, Late Friday, The Debators and having starred in CTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comedy Inc. The Vancouver-native came up with the idea for the Comic Strippers show while sitting in the bathtub â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his wife had come home from a real malestripping show and told him â&#x20AC;&#x153;everybody was going crazy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just occurred to me that we have torsos and we could do it,â&#x20AC;? he said. He called up some of his improv buddies in the city and eventually joined up with Chris Casillan, David Milchard and Ken Lawson. Lawson is from Kamloops and portrays the

most experienced peeler, with 47 years of stripping under his belt, despite being â&#x20AC;&#x153;relatively new to the improv scene.â&#x20AC;? The crew â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dubbed with appropriate strippernames Chip Stick, Chip Otle, Chip Rock and Chip Munk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; travelled to Australia to perform the show and has toured around the province. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve added a second show to their stop in Kamloops following the popularity of the first date. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re off to Newfoundland at the end of the month and Danylo wants to make the most out of the show while they can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have a real short window of opportunity,â&#x20AC;? he said, referencing the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ages and multiple injuries that have resulted from the physical demands of pole dancing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to be over before you know it.â&#x20AC;? As with other improv shows, Comic Strippers includes audience participation. The audience plays the rowdy fan base that usually watches male strippers and someone in the crowd might even be chosen for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;privateâ&#x20AC;? show. Danylo encourages men and women alike to come out, with the warning: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like this show because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no finesse to it, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no subtlety â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fullbore,â&#x20AC;? he said. Tickets for the 19-plus show are $32 each or $29 for groups of six or more and can be purchased from Kamloops Live box office at 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483 or kamloopslive.ca. The show begins at 8 p.m. on both nights, Friday, May 9, and Saturday, May 10, with limited availability remaining for the Saturday-night performance.

The provincial government has $1.5 million available for schools to use to bring professional artists into their classrooms. ArtStarts in School operates two grant programs to accomplish this: Artists in Education provides subsidies for districts to provide activities that involve music, dance, literary and theatrical performances and visual arts, while Artists in the Classroom provides schools with subsidies to bring in the same various artists in an artist residency that involves a project within a subject area students are studying. An artist residency is defined by ArtStarts as a partnership that can involve working in a single or many classrooms, involving one or many grades, over the course of a week or longer. The goal is to share insights into artistic skills and processes with students and teachers either on a project the artist brings to the classroom or work students are doing. In 2009, for example, David Prytula and Sophie McGarry worked

with 45 students at Twin Rivers Educational Centre on a documentary-style video that looked at gang activity in the city, while Vauhgn Warren worked with 150 students at Beattie School of the Arts to create a collaborative mural. In 2011, David Milwan worked with students at Aberdeen elementary on drumming and David Trembla worked with students at Four Directions Storefront School on feather beading. Deadline for the first program is May 23; deadline for the classroom program is May 30. The programs are available to all school districts in the province, the Federation of Independent School Associations, le Conseil scolaire francophone de la ColumbieBritannique and the First Nations Schools Association. The money comes from the B.C. Arts Council, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main agency supporting arts funding and development in the province. For more information, go online to artstarts.com.

Escape remains a compact leader

With its recent makeover, the 2014 Ford Escape is one of the best-looking compact crossover vehicles on the market.

By Lorne Drury

METROLAND MEDIA

A

wheels.ca

LWAYS ONE OF THE MOST POPUlar compact crossovers on the market, the Ford Escape is also one of the most stylish thanks to a significant redesign

last year. So for 2014 there are only minor tweaks to the Escape, mostly involving new features and technologies. Fuel efficiency continues to be Job One for Ford when it comes to the Escape. There is no longer a V6 engine, only a trio of four-bangers. For 2014, the Escape is available with the choice of two EcoBoost turbo engines - a 1.6-litre inline four (178 hp on premium fuel or 173 hp on regular fuel, 184 lb/ft of torque) or a 2.0-litre inline four (240 hp with premium fuel, 231 with regular fuel, 280 lb/ft of torque). Lastly there is a 2.5-litre Duratec inline fourcylinder engine (168 hp, 2014 170 lb/ft of torque). FORD ESCAPE The 2.5-litre is availAT A GLANCE able only with frontwheel drive, while the PRICE: S-FWD other two engines offer $24,499, SE FWD an optional Intelligent $26,999, SE AWD 4WD system in addition $29,199, Titanium to FWD. FWD $33,499, Based on the same Titanium AWD platform as the Focus $35,699. As tested compact, the Escape is $43,014 including a versatile charmer that $1,625 freight and treats drivers to a more delivery. WEBSITE: ford.ca car-like ride than many other similar CUVs. While compact in size, the Escape nevertheless has a highly functional interior with fold-flat 60/40 second-row seats, creating an impressive 1,920 litres (67.8 cu ft) of cargo space. Leaving the second row seats up, you are left with 961 litres of cargo space. And, with the 2.0-litre engine and a Class II trailer hitch, the Escape will tow up to 1,587 kg (3,500 lb). We tested a top-shelf Escape Titanium 4WD, dressed in an attractive Ruby Red tinted clear coat metallic, a $400 option, with a grey leather interior. Titanium is one of three trim levels, starting with the Escape S FWD. The upmarket SE and Titanium models can be purchased with FWD or 4WD. Prices start at $24,499 for the Escape S with the 2.5-litre inline four, a six-speed SelectShift transmission, MyKey and a six-speaker AM/FM audio system with single disc CD player and MP-3 capability. The SE ($26,999 FWD and $29,199 AWD) adds features like keyless entry with security code entry, voice-activated SYNC and MyFord Touch with 4.2inch colour display screen. The Titanium ($33,499 FWD and $35,699 AWD) features a Sony audio system, leather-trimmed heated front bucket seats and a foot-activated liftgate. Our tester had a number of optional features including the Titanium Technology Package ($1,750) with HID automatic headlights, blind spot detection system and automatic parking system. Other options were the expansive power panorama roof ($1,750), Sirius satellite radio and navigation system ($800), 19-inch alloy wheels ($650) and the trailer-towing package ($500).

Ford Transit joins cast of American Pickers The 2015 Ford Transit is joining History’s American Pickers as stars Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz travel around the United States, searching remote and rustic locations for classic gems that can be restored and resold. Wolfe and Fritz will drive a 2015 Transit, a full-size van designed for commercial use, in their mission to find these relics. American Pickers will use the largest Transit model — with a long wheelbase, extended body and high roof — featuring the Ford 3.2-litre Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel engine. The show is just one example of how Ford Transit serves the needs of small businesses and commercial fleets. The 2015 model-year Transit —

built at Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant — will be available in three body lengths, two wheelbases and three roof heights; in van, wagon, chassis cab and cutaway body styles; and in XL and XLT trim levels, offering more choices than ever from a Ford commercial vehicle. The high-roof Transit — with bestin-class 81.5 inches of interior height — provides enough headroom for a person six-feet eight inches tall to stand upright in the cargo area. In some configurations, Transit offers as much as much as 75 per cent more volume than the largest E-Series, saving customers the fuel costs and time associated with having to make a second trip. The van used on American Pickers will feature an available rear-view camera and reverse-park aid.

The 2015 Ford Transit is joining the cast of American Pickers on History.

New look means Escape will stay at top of CUV heap With all options, taxes and freight added in, the as-tested price was $43,014. The five-passenger Escape is a major seller for Ford as Canadian dealers moved more than 45,000 units last year and just under 14,000 in the first four months of 2014. Not bad for a vehicle that has been around since 2001. A complete redesign for the 2013 model year has paid dividends, with a vehicle that combines versatility, good looks and decent performance and handling ability. The Escape weighs 1,710 kg (3,769 lb), however it is surprisingly agile and easy to manoeuvre and park, even in a couple of tight spots I encountered during the weeklong test. A feature called Torque Vectoring Control helps the Escape in hard cornering by transferring torque to the wheels with the most bite (i.e. outside wheels) to prevent understeer and forcing the front end to hug the curve. Another feature is Curve Control that slows the vehicle when it is entering a curve too quickly. And although it wasn’t needed during my time with the Escape, the 4WD system adds a feeling of security as the system monitors traction and cornering conditions every 16 milliseconds and automatically adjusts power distribution where it’s needed. With the boxy oldstyle SUV-look replaced by a sleeker, more modern design the Escape handles as good as it looks, now in the class of the Mazda CX-5 that many auto scribes, including yours truly, have felt was the segment leader. Inside, the Escape has the look and feel of a more upscale vehicle. The seats are firm, yet comfortable and well bolstered. There is nice use of chrome and metallic accents and soft-touch materials for a feeling of luxury in spite of a fair amount

of hard plastic in the cabin. Overall fit and finish is good. The hands free, foot-

activated rear liftgate can be a useful feature when you are lugging a couple of bags of

You can drive there in less than an hour and learn about the history of Interior B.C.’s logging, just like KTW travel writer Teresa Kline did. The trail follows the path of an old flume used to move logs. Teresa Kline/KTW

Why not hike the Shuswap’s Flume Trail? Teresa Kline

W

HY DON’T you put on your hiking shoes this weekend, take a 50 minute drive out to the Adams River and check out the beautiful Flume Trail where you can learn a little bit about British Columbia’s rich logging history? Chase was established as an industrial town in 1908 to service the Adams River Lumber Company’s new mill. The mill was the first

major industry to be established in the Interior of B.C. following the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railroad. During the first three years of operation, all the logging took place within half a mile of the shore. Two loggers using sevento 10-foot crosscut saws, cut down the trees often employing spring boards to get above the waste wood such as hollow butts and large splayed root systems. During 1912 timber near the shoreline of Adams Lake became scarce, making it no longer possible to move logs

Fresh • Local • Sustainable •

HOW TO GET THERE

FROM KAMLOOPS: Drive past Chase and take the turn off to the North Shuswap. Turn right onto Holding Road where the sign points to Adams Lake. Drive a few minutes down the road until you see the sign on the left that says Historic Flume Trail and park there. TO WATCH A VIDEO: Go online to wheretogoandhowtogetthere.com. FOR MORE INFORMATION: Go online to shuswaptrails.com. to the lake with chutes or tote roads. The company then

embarked on a most-interesting mode of log transportation.

Remarkable

In the Bear Creek Valley there was a small lake located near the bulk of the timber. A dam with a V-shaped flume was built in order to float the logs 11 miles to the lower Adams River. In order to maintain a constant flow of water in the flume, it was necessary to follow a very steady grade. Often the flume was carried on trestles 50 to 80 feet above the ground to cross gullies. Logs could travel the 11 miles in 15 minutes. By 1925 many of the methods and machinery

were obsolete. The company had operated for nearly 20 years, but succumbed to economics and ceased operation in the fall of 1925. The trail is separated into two parts — the upper trail, which follows Bear Creek, and the lower trail that brings you to Adams River. The upper trail has an upper and lower loop, to do both takes approximately two hours. Be sure to check out the display at the bottom of a recreated section of the flume, which is beside an old section of the original flume.
