Plan for safe-consumption sites set to take next step this month DALE BASS STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Safe-consumption drug sites will move a step closer to creation in Kamloops this month as agencies and other organizations prepare to meet with Interior Health Authority administrators in the city. The meeting comes at the conclusion of a consultation period that included politicians, frontline workers, emergency personnel, police and others who deal with the realities of addiction. The public also had the opportunity to express their views online. Last fall, IHA medical officer of health Dr. Silvina Mema discussed the plan to create at least one such site in the city. Health Minister Terry Lake, however, recommended a mobile site be created to provide care on both sides of the river. Kamloops city council gave unanimous approval in September to the creation of up to two supervised consumption sites. Mema told KTW all sides are working to finalize plans, but no formal application has been sent to Health Canada requesting an exemption from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act that would prohibit creation of the sites. “There is an exemption application process,” Mema said. “The law requires all this paperwork go to Health Canada.” She said she hopes any application would be processed quickly. “While we talk, people are dying,” she said. However, Mema said, the project needs planning. “It has to have some roots,” she said. “We can’t float this out of nowhere.” Mema said the success overdose-prevention sites in Kamloops are experiencing con-

that has as its objective dealing with addictions and promoting harm reduction. The two sites are in areas were drug users congregate while the Kelowna clinic is in a vacant building that once housed IHA offices, located in an area away from any part of that city where drug users gather.
In its first two weeks, the two Kamloops sites handed out 49 naloxone kits and staff used the drug to reverse four overdoses. ASK executive director Bob Hughes said the sites have distributed more than 150 kits which contain the drug that will temporarily stop an overdose. In Kelowna, the start was slower, Mema said, but has been picking up. The Kamloops sites have gone beyond the primary goal of saving lives, she said, also offering wound care and other services. “That’s what needs to happen,” she said.

Former high-profile Mountie admits she used the drug
CAM FORTEMS STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
A former Kamloops Mountie charged with three counts of trafficking cocaine while she was an officer pleaded guilty yesterday to a reduced charge. A sentencing hearing for Randi Love began on the first day of what was supposed to be her preliminary inquiry on the trafficking charges. Love, at one time the local RCMP’s media representative, entered a guilty plea in Kamloops provincial court to simple possession. An agreed statement of facts was entered into provincial court showing on three days in June 2015, Love arranged with an unidentified drug dealer to purchase cocaine on behalf of two friends. In fact, she was doing the drug alongside her friends, police later determined. Crown prosecutor Gerry Sair said the original charges were listed as trafficking because transporting drugs is considered trafficking under the Criminal Code. On the latter two occasions in June 2015, Love had returned from a medical leave and was on administrative duty with the RCMP. Sair said the information came to light when RCMP were shown Facebook Messenger posts as part of an unrelated domestic dispute involving the drug dealer. Portions of those texts between Love and the drug dealer were read in court. Love texted the dealer, saying she was picking up product for a friend.
“Want to do some?” the dealer texted. “Jesus, no,” Love replied on one occasion. On another set of texts, Love texted the dealer saying “I don’t know how this shit goes down and I don’t want to know.” Those messages were frequently interspersed with “lol” and “omg.” “Did you try it out?” he asked her on another occasion. “No, I sure didn’t lol,” she replied. In another text, she told the dealer she was frightened because she saw two Mounties nearby after they conducted the deal. Those texts led police to believe Love was transporting the drug and not taking it, hence the original trafficking charge. But one of her friends, who initially protected her, later told police Love was also taking cocaine. The Crown is arguing for suspended sentence while the defence is asking Love be given a conditional discharge — meaning she would not have a criminal record. Both sides agree she should report to probation for 12 months or until she has done 50 hours of community work service. Sair argued for the higher sentence. “Whether she likes it or not . . . the law says if you’re a peace officer and you commit crimes you’re held to a higher standard.” Defence lawyer Brad Smith said Love suffers from a serious on-duty back injury in 2009 that derailed her career. She also
suffered emotionally when her father died in 2013. “Ms. Love is not some ski bum in Whistler snorting cocaine in a stairwell. She took cocaine on three occasions to numb her pain, both physically and emotionally.” Smith focused on what Love’s psychologist called “relentless” attention by news organizations on her court appearances. She was diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorders. “Imagine doing the worst thing you’ve ever done and having it appear in the newspaper. Here we have someone who’s lived through that.” Love has endured three surgeries to fuse discs in her neck as well as surgery on nerves in her back, something she will require every two years, Smith said. Prior to taking the cocaine, she’d been told the RCMP was going to medically discharge her because she was no longer physically able. She also claims she was sexually harassed by a superior years earlier and had also been through two difficult domestic breakups. Smith called the cocaine use “an attempt to self-medicate.” Love resigned from the national police force in January last year amid the investigation into the allegations. She has since decided to become a counsellor and intends to register for courses in Kelowna. But Smith said her career aspirations could be cut short with a criminal conviction on her record. A sentencing decision will be given at a later date.

‘Incredible benefit’ to overdose-prevention sites, ASK Wellness says DALE BASS
There’s been an “incredible benefit” to last month’s creation of overdose-prevention sites in Kamloops, said Bob Hughes, something that goes beyond ensuring drug users are safe — many of them are talking with the medical staff there about some of the reasons they are in their lifestyles. The executive director of ASK Wellness Centre said that as staff hand out safe drug-use equipment — a program the agency has done for years to help combat infections and other diseases associated with drug use — they’re also looking for opportunities to ask clients about housing needs other health issues and whether they’re ready to try rehabilitation programs or other services that might see them make changes in the way they live. “It’s not just an exchange of the gear,” Hughes said. “Having nurses there also helps prevent
anyone dying from an overdose but it also opens the opportunity to talk to people instead of just saying, ‘Here’s your equipment, now go.’ I think that is one of the unintended but incredibly beneficial outcomes. “We want to help people to be safe but at the moment someone wants to go into a treatment program, that should be a red-carpet ride for people who want to go and get help.” Hughes praised the nursing staff who are working with the agency at the sites for being “welcoming, skilled and compassionate. “Along with our workers, it brings together harm-reduction and treatment into a unified approach. “Before, the treatment linkage had been absent,” he said. He also lauded Dr. Ian Mitchell, who has volunteered to be the medical director for the two sites. Mitchell is an emergency-room physician at Royal Inland Hospital and expert on medical cannabis and emergency medicine.
Since the overdose-prevention sites were established at the ASK office on Tranquille Road and the Crossroads Inn housing facility it operates on Seymour Street, more than 150 naloxone kits have been handed out. Only one overdose death was reported over the Christmas holiday period, Hughes said, that of a recreational-drug user in his 20s who, despite several injections of the drug that temporarily stops an overdose — usually long enough for emergency personnel to arrive — the man was declared brain-dead. “It was such a tragedy,” Hughes said. “He thought he was using cocaine.” The drug was likely laced with fentanyl, Hughes said, the opioid at the heart of the provincial health crisis that has seen overdoses and related death rates soaring. Despite that, he said, research is showing the incidence of overdose deaths in recreational drug users is starting to decrease. “So they seem to be getting the message,” Hughes said.
HPV vaccine will be made available to boys in September In September, the province will begin providing the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination to boys through the publicly funded immunization program. Health Minister Terry Lake said the initiative expands on the program that has been available to Grade 6 girls.
Grade 6 boys are being added to help improve protection against a range of cancers caused by the virus that can affect both boys and girls. The program will be part of school-based clinics, but will also be available at health-care providers and public-health units.
“Vaccine safety monitoring continues to show the safety of the HPV immunization,” said Dr. Perry Kendall, B.C.’s provincial health officer. “It’s just as effective in preventing HPV-related cancers in males as it is in females and the benefits are long lasting.”

School district responding to death of student DALE BASS
School District 73 follows a structured process when — one that has a lot of leeway in how it proceeds — when a student dies, according to Trish Smillie, the district’s director of student supports. Ashtyn Middleton, a student at Twin Rivers Education Centre, died in a North Kamloops house on Jan. 7. Police and coroners are investigating. All school district counsellors are called and given the information when a student dies, Smillie said. They work on a support plan that will address various reactions to the death from other family in the system to friends to teachers and anyone related to the deceased. That often means talking with several schools. Kamloops is small enough that students have peers in other schools, particularly at the secondary level, Smillie said, and principals will talk with each other to provide an alert if grief and trauma might be felt at their institutions. There have been times when the death did not occur in Kamloops but it has still had an impact. Most recently, that happened in November when a man entered an Abbotsford high school and stabbed a student to death. Smillie said a conference call was held with all SD73 principals to update them on it, discuss all the safety precautions in place in the city’s schools and alert them to watch for signs of trauma from students who might wonder about their own security in class. Support comes in many ways, Smillie said. It can be targeted not only for those close
to the deceased but others in the school community who react to the existence of grief around them. The district assists in ways to memorialize the student, as well. It can range from flying the flag at halfmast, a visual acknowledgement of the grief,
to designating a spot for tributes and memorials to be placed. If the student is First Nations or aboriginal, the district works with its principal who oversees that part of the education system, as well as others, to ensure any memorializing is culturally appropriate.

THE HOT AND NOT OF THE WEEK Kamloops This Week looks at the stories of the week — the good, the bad and all in-between:
NOT: The latest delay in re-opening the Westsyde Pool. The facility has been closed since the summer of 2015 and looks like it won’t reopen until this summer after it was discovered the wrong materials have been used to replace the pool’s rotting roof. HOT: While the pool stays closed for now, good news can be found on the health-care side of Kamloops as two new medical clinics near opening days. Nurse-practitioners have been hired, some doctors are in line to begin three-year placements and interviews continue with other personnel for the clinics in the Manshadi pharmacy building on Tranquille Road and at Northills Mall.
HOT/NOT HOT: Guess it depends on which side you fall in the ongoing Trans Mountain pipeline debate. Those who see the potential job growth during the construction period are praising it while others who are concerned about pipeline safety are condemning the decision by the provincial government. HOT: The four conservation officers who rescued a fawn from the icy North Thompson River. The little critter was half-in, half-out of the water when someone saw it and called for help. The quartet spent an hour bringing the fawn back to safety and made sure it was fully recovered and not in danger of hypothermia.

Justice system must be open
omewhere in B.C., some years ago, a girl died. Later this month, a man is scheduled to stand trial on allegations he sexually assaulted the girl before she died. Any time someone is charged with a sexual offence, there is an automatic ban on publication of the name of the alleged victim, as well as any information that could identify the victim. Such things are only possible when the victim — or, in this case, the deceased victim’s family — wants the ban lifted and the girl’s mother wanted it done. She wanted people to know her now-dead daughter was also the alleged victim of a sexual assault. The mother’s reasons were noble. She thought having her daughter’s name public could convince silent rape victims to come forward. She also hoped the circumstances surrounding the alleged assault might provide some context for the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s death. A reporter phoned the prosecutor, who was not on board with lifting the ban. If the prosecutor had agreed, the process could have been simple — go to court, ask the judge to lift the ban and
MUSINGS go from there. The reporter — not the prosecutor — filed an application in court to have the ban lifted. It would require the eventual support of the prosecutor, but that seemed possible. Within hours of the application being filed, the lawyer prosecuting the case phoned the mother and told her lifting the ban would put the trial in jeopardy. The mother called the reporter and said she did not want to jeopardize the case. The reporter phoned the prosecutor and asked how lifting the ban would cause a problem with the case. What the prosecutor said was surprising — having the sex-assault trial in the news would jeopardize the case because witnesses might be spooked by the coverage. The prosecutor, essentially, wanted to have a trial in secret.
That is not how our judicial system works. Canada’s justice system is open and must be seen to be open. When this trial begins later this month, it will not be as open as it should be. It will be one of many sexassault cases with an accused and an anonymous victim as the application has no chance of succeeding given the change of heart of the mother, due to the prosecutor’s phone call. That is in the best interest of no one but the prosecutor. There are certainly cases in which justice can only be done when a publication ban is in place. This is not one of them. According to the Supreme Court of Canada, bans are meant to be imposed only when it is necessary “to prevent a real and substantial risk to the fairness of the trial” and “the salutary effects of the publication ban outweigh the deleterious effects to the free expression of those affected by the ban.” In this case, a prosecutor wants to conduct a trial with as little public scrutiny as possible. The justice system, and all who draw a paycheque from it, should be ashamed by such actions. email@example.com Twitter: @timpetruk

YOUR OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
IN WAKE OF OPIOID CRISIS, REGULATE DRUGS Editor: I think the development of more powerful street drugs (i.e. fentanyl, meth, etc.) of course is driven by the profits available for cheaper more powerful lethal drugs. I think it may be time to look at legalizing drugs so we can better control them. Drugs at one time in world history were legal and the use of them was far less widespread. Coca Cola at one time contained cocaine (hence the name coke). The consumption of alcohol
during Prohibition was far more widespread than when it was legal. There were many deaths from badly produced by unregulated producers of alcohol or antifreeze-laced cocktails. The growth of gangland crime and political corruption was rampant. Maybe an open-minded approach is necessary to solve the drug problems of the Western world. Between fentanyl deaths, brain-dead meth users and gangland slayings in protecting terri-
tory, the scourge on our society may be of our own doing. How much do we spend on policing, incarceration and overloaded courts systems, while the drug cartels make more than Canada’s gross national product? I may sound weird to think this could ever happen, seeing how long it is taking to legalize what grows naturally. I don’t doubt drug money can grease a lot of political wheels to keep things illegal. John Rimmell Kamloops
open-minded approach is necessary to solve the drug problems of the Western world.”
LACK OF SNOW REMOVAL POSES DANGER TO RESIDENTS Editor: I agree with the Jan. 5 letter on snow removal (‘Heaps of snow need to be removed’). Where are the dump trucks to haul the snow away? The city should be
taking the snow away so we can at least clear our windrow left behind by snow plows and sidewalk cleaners. The windrows are so heavy with salt and sand it becomes almost impossible to lift and drop
them elsewhere. I called the city about this problem and was told residents are responsible for clearing the driveways and sidewalks. I don’t have a problem with that but the city hasn’t taken into consid-

GRATEFUL FOR ‘WONDERFUL CARE’ IN TIME OF NEED Editor: What better time than the beginning of a brand new year, 2017, to thank the staff of the Kamloops Seniors Village. They truly are unsung angels on Earth. My husband and I fell ill with a flu bug on Tuesday, Dec. 27.
Well, the next morning a miracle happened. The most friendly and helpful health-care aid workers and dietary staff jumped into action, bringing chicken broth, apple juice and Jello daily with the warmest, friendliest faces you will ever see.
Even though they were run off their feet, the smiles never left their faces. What wonderful care. We especially want to thank: Kris Liana, Cheryl and Jen. You all deserve our thanks for your concern. We are one senior couple
really blessed — we couldn’t be in a better place. Happy New Year to all the staff and everyone here. We hope and pray that 2017 will be a healthy year for all — from a senior couple. Marv and Bep Crawford Kamloops

Former Neskonlith chief, First Nations activist Arthur Manuel dead at 66 A former chief of the Neskonlith Indian Band has died. Arthur Manuel, 66, was also chair of the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council, spokesperson for the Interior Alliance and an advocate on the international stage for indigenous people. He died on Wednesday, surrounded by his family, Doreen Manuel said. Manuel is revered by many. “Arthur Manuel was, without question, one of Canada’s strongest and most outspoken Indigenous Leaders in the defence of our indigenous land and human rights,” Stewart Phillip, Grand Chief of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, said in a statement. “He travelled extensively throughout Canada, North America and around the world in his unwavering and relentless efforts to champion the cause of our indigenous rights. “He relentlessly worked on land claim issues, calling for change to Canada’s fundamental flawed policy on Indigenous land claims. “At this terribly sad

VICTORIA — The British Columbia government spent more than $600,000 on the royal tour last fall of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their two young children. Through a costsharing agreement with the federal government, the province says its portion of expenses totalled $613,363.93. The B.C. government says the funds covered several costs,

including the royals’ accommodation, site reconnaissance at each location and media transportation.
Prince William and Kate drew frenzied crowds when they visited Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna,
Bella Bella and Haida Gwaii between Sept. 24 and Oct. 1. The Duke and Duchess also visited Whitehorse and Carcross in Yukon, where the Department of Tourism and Culture spent $11,754.76 but the territory is still expected to release further expense costs. The federal government hasn’t released its final bill to host the royals, but has said it had a budget estimate of $855,600, while the RCMP has said it spent $2 million.
McDonald’s Canada testing all-day breakfast in Langley, Coquitlam TORONTO — McDonald’s has begun serving its famed Egg McMuffins, hash browns and other breakfast menu items around the clock in some restaurants in Canada. The fast-food giant has launched all-day breakfast at 17 restaurants in B.C., Ontario and Quebec. Most of the locations serving breakfast past 11 a.m. are in Ajax and Whitby, Ont. The rest are in Mississauga, Ont., Brampton,
Ont., the Montreal area, Langley, B.C. and Coquitlam, B.C. The company is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Canada this year and operates more than 1,400 restaurants throughout the country. It launched all-day breakfast in the United States in the fall of 2015 and has since attributed the popularity of the morning food items for an increase in its sales. — The Canadian Press

Trudeau tells Kingston town hall he favoured ranked ballot system THE CANADIAN PRESS
KINGSTON, Ont. — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reminded dozens of people at a town hall meeting yesterday that he favoured a ranked ballot system in the past, even though his government insists it has an open mind about how to change the electoral system. Trudeau, who faced critical questions about issues including the Phoenix pay controversy and the handling of indigenous issues, is at the start of a whirlwind, taxpayerfunded outreach tour. “If a government gets disconnected from the people we have the responsibility of serving, then not only can we not serve them very well, but they notice,’’ he said. Under questioning from two public servants, Trudeau reiterated that the handling of the govern-
ment-pay system issue is unacceptable. He was also pressed on issues including the need for a national pharmacare program, his government’s recent decision to approve pipelines and transgender rights. Earlier in the day, Trudeau visited a community restaurant in Ottawa, the Aquatarium in Brockville, Ont., which features fish native to the St. Lawrence River and the surrounding area, and a highway rest stop. It’s a schedule reminiscent of an election campaign. Trudeau is to hold another town hall meeting later today in Belleville, Ont. The tour comes as his government attempts to fend off recent controversies including questions around a holiday in the Bahamas with the Aga Khan and cash-foraccess fundraisers.

OTTAWA — National Defence is refusing to disclose details about several Canadian soldiers treated at a military hospital in northern Iraq in recent weeks, including whether any of them were wounded on the battlefield. The soldiers were among 120 patients who were seen at the medical facility since it began operating near the Kurdish city of Erbil at the end of November, according to figures provided to The Canadian Press. The hospital, staffed by about 50 Canadian Forces medical personnel, is providing emergency and nonemergency care to those involved in the battle for nearby Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city. The figures show that the majority of patients seen at the facility have been troops from other coalition countries such as the United States, which has more than 5,000 soldiers in Iraq. But the hospital had also treated seven Canadian soldiers, as well as three members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant who were captured and needed medical aid. Military spokesman Capt. Vincent Bouchard refused this week to say whether any of the seven Canadians were wounded in combat.
“For privacy reasons and operational considerations, the Canadian Armed Forces do not release details about the types of injuries treated at the Role 2 medical facility,’’ Bouchard said in an email. As for the captured ISIL fighters, officials said they remained in the custody of coalition members even while being treated by Canadian medical personnel. The military’s refusal to say whether any Canadian soldiers have been wounded in combat sparked fresh calls from opposition parties on Thursday for more transparency about the mission. “Canadians should know if our troops are being injured on a mission,’’ NDP foreign affairs critic Helene Laverdiere said in an email. “If the Liberals are trying to stop this information coming out because it would prove that our soldiers are entering into combat, then that would be disgraceful. “We don’t play games with wounded soldiers.’’ Cabinet ministers and military commanders say Canadian troops are not involved in combat, as was promised by the Liberals during the 2015 federal election. But critics have accused the government of hiding information and even misleading the public about the nature of the mission, which they believe includes combat.

Biden: Intel officials told us about Trump allegations JOSH LEDERMAN
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — VicePresident Joe Biden said yesterday that top intelligence leaders told him and President Barack Obama they felt obligated to inform them about uncorroborated allegations about president-elect Donald Trump out of concern the information would become public and catch them off-guard. In an interview, Biden said neither he nor Obama asked U.S. intelligence agencies to try to corroborate the unverified claims that Russia had obtained compromising sexual and financial allegations about Trump. “I think it’s something that obviously the agency thinks they have to track down,’’ Biden said. He added later, “It surprised me in that it made it to the point where the agency, the FBI thought they had to pursue it.’’ In the hourlong session with The Associated Press and other news outlets, the vice-president was sharply critical of Trump
for publicly disparaging intelligence officials, saying Trump was damaging U.S. standing and playing into Russia’s hands. He also took umbrage at Trump’s comments accusing intelligence agencies of allowing the information to leak publicly and drawing a comparison to “living in Nazi Germany.’’ “The one thing you never want to invoke is Nazi Germany, no matter what the circumstances,’’ Biden said. “It’s an overwhelming diversion from the point you’re trying to make.’’ Biden said that in the briefing he and Obama received from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and others, there were “no conclusions drawn’’ from the uncorroborated dossier, which was produced in August and then released publicly this week by the media. Biden said it was “totally ancillary’’ to the purpose of the meeting, which was to brief Obama on a report he ordered documenting Russian interference in the U.S. campaign. “As a matter of fact, the
president was like, ‘What does this have anything to do with anything?’’’ Biden said. He said intelligence leaders responded by saying “Well, we feel obliged to tell you, Mr. President, because you may hear about it. We’re going to tell him,’’ referring to Trump. Biden said intelligence leaders told him and Obama that they couldn’t say whether or not the allegations were true or untrue. He said there was “hardly any discussion’’ about the allegations in the briefing. “Neither the president nor I asked for any detail,’’ Biden said. But he added of the dossier: “I’ve read everything.’’ Trump has vehemently denied the allegations included in a dossier about close co-ordination between Trump’s inner circle and Russians. The dossier also included unsubstantiated claims about unusual sexual activities by Trump, attributed to anonymous sources. The Associated Press has not authenticated the claims. Trump has denied them.
More airstrikes despite Syria pact THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BEIRUT — The U.N. envoy for Syria said yesterday that a ceasefire was “largely holding with some exceptions,’’ as opposition activists reported a mounting number of government airstrikes, including a raid in the northern Aleppo province that killed at least six civilians. Speaking to reporters in
Geneva, Staffan de Mistura said he was concerned that fighting northwest of Damascus that has cut off the capital’s clean water supply would further escalate and derail proposed negotiations between the government and the opposition in Astana, Kazakhstan, later this month. The talks are sponsored by Russia and Turkey, which support opposing sides of the
Belgium lays charges in Paris terror attack THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BRUSSELS — Belgian authorities have arrested a suspect and filed terror-related charges linked to the November 2015 Paris attacks that killed 130 people. The federal prosecutor’s office said yesterday the suspect, identified only as Farid K, was accused of providing fake documents which were used in the preparation of the attacks. He was charged with taking part in the activities of a terrorist group and held in custody. Another suspect, Meryem E.B., was charged with falsification of documents but released. Seven attackers were killed the night of the Nov. 13 attacks and two others died in a police raid five days later. One key player — Salah Abdeslam — escaped and was arrested four months later in Belgium. Other members of the network survived, plotting violence from Belgium and Syria or Iraq.
Syrian civil war. But the status of the meeting, planned for Jan. 23, is not clear. Rebels say the government’s continued campaign for the Barada Valley, the capital’s main source of water, has cast the talks in doubt. The U.N. says the capital has suffered from a water shortage affecting 5.5 million consumers since Dec. 22.

NEW-LOOK BLAZERS DEBUT TONIGHT MARTY HASTINGS
ollin Shirley was pretty sure he wasn’t going anywhere at the WHL trade deadline on Tuesday, but the thought crossed his mind. If the call came from Kamloops Blazers’ general manager Stu MacGregor — “Collin, thanks for your services, but you’ve been traded to Prince Albert. Dress warm” — it would have been devastating. “I’d probably start crying on the phone,” Shirley said with a laugh. “I wouldn’t be too pleased. I’d give my mom a call. She’d be crying. I’d be crying. The whole family would be crying.” The captain remains and his Blazers will be in action tonight against the Everett Silvertips, Kamloops’ first game at full health with each of its pre-deadline acquisitions in the lineup. Game time tonight is 7 p.m. “For me, now I have to find the right combinations for everybody, fit the pieces into the right positions, with right linemates and the right combinations for the special teams,” Blazers’ head coach Don Hay said. “It should be really exciting for the fans. We have a more competitive group than we did before the deadline.” Garrett Pilon will return to the lineup tonight after recovering from a concussion and will be reunited with wingers Deven Sideroff and Rudolfs Balcers on one of the league’s best lines. Lane Bauer, added in a trade last week, will settle onto the second line, likely with Shirley and Nick Chyzowski tonight, while recent additions Luc Smith and Nic Holowko will fit into a much-
Kamloops Blazers’ forward Jermaine Loewen has five goals and eight points in his last eight games heading into a tilt tonight against the Everett Silvertips. Puck-drop is slated for 7 p.m. For a story on Kamloops product Kevin Davis, a Silvertips’ defenceman, turn to page A17.

improved bottom-six group that includes re-energized Jermaine Loewen. The 18-year-old bruiser from Arborg, Man., via May Pen, Jamaica, was challenged by Hay to be more consistent, to impose his 6-foot-4 frame on defenders when charging down the wing. Loewen has responded with five goals and eight points in his last eight games, bringing his
season totals to six goals and 14 points. “I’m just thinking about making sure I’m strong, protecting myself to get in tight and go around them and keeping my legs churning to try my best to get to the front of the net,” said Loewen, who told KTW he wanted 15 goals in a pre-season interview. “We’ve got all the right pieces on the team now and a good group of guys for a good run to the playoffs. I’m excited to come to work every day.” Kamloops will attempt to rectify its struggling power play by upping its use of Czech import defenceman Ondrej Vala, who will be looking to unleash a few howitzers tonight in the direction of Tips’ netminder Carter Hart. “It’s nice to have some power-
play minutes,” Vala said. “For me, I never play that too much here. So, just trying to shoot that puck every time, to get goals and rebounds. That is what I want.” Hay and assistant coach Mike Needham, who runs the power play, plan to use four forwards and one D-man on each of the units. Injured forward Matt Revel was picked up off waivers by the Portland Winterhawks this week, a tough pill to swallow for teammates such as Shirley, despite knowing the writing was on the wall when overage forward Bauer arrived on Mark Recchi Way. “The thing with Revs is we’ve been together for four years,” Shirley said. “When he got hurt in Edmonton, you could tell he was
bummed out and so were we. It’s tough when you see a guy go out with injury. That’s the worst way to leave.” Dylan Ferguson will start between the pipes for the Blazers, with Connor Ingram still at home in Imperial, Sask, resting after the World Junior Hockey Championship. Once he returns next week, Kamloops will be whole again, barring any injuries this weekend. “Being my 20-year-old season, it’s my last kick at the can, I’m just really happy to be here,” Shirley said. “We’ve got a team, and I’ve said it from the beginning, that’s special. I just can’t wait to get ‘er going.”

Yes, I’ll have the meat lovers, a two-litre of Pepsi, a trip to the Super Bowl and, oh, can you throw in a pair of tickets to Bruno Mars? Thanks, Papa John’s Pizza. Andrea Veitch thought the message left on her answering machine might be a prank call, a cruel joke from someone who knew she entered a contest on a whim in mid-November. “I listened to it once and went, ‘Yeah, right,’” Veitch said. “I called her back and she goes, ‘Yeah, I am a real person.’ It was the best Christmas present for my son.” Veitch and her nine-year-old boy, Daniel, who started playing Kamloops Community Football last year with the atom team,
won two tickets to the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 in Houston, including airfare, ground transportation and four nights at a hotel. Papa John’s ran the nationwide promotion in conjunction with Pepsi from September to December, receiving thousands of online entries from customers across the country, with only one grand prize to hand out. “No one from Kamloops ever wins anything through us,” said John Stokes, general manager of Kamloops’ two Papa John’s locations. “It’s normally the big provincial towns. “It’s fantastic. It’s a real boost. All the staff are over the moon. It just doesn’t happen. They were like, wow, really?” Yup, really. When Veitch was on the line with the NFL promotions manager, she was informed another sponsor had stepped forward
to offer two tickets to see Bruno Mars in Houston on Feb. 3. “I love Papa John’s,” said Veitch, who assured KTW she’s not just towing the company line. “My daughter’s a figure skater and, last year, on Monday night, you got the NFL pizza deal, so that’s when we’d order.” Veitch is a stay-at-home mom and her husband works internationally. He is flying out to work around the same time she and Daniel set course for Texas. “There was no argument about who was going,” she said with a laugh. “I entered and the promotion is non-transferrable.” Veitch has never been to the Lone Star State, where the only expense she’ll have to cover is food. “I’m going to find the best steakhouse they have there,” Veitch said, “and we may go to Papa John’s for lunch.”

Raptors coach Casey high on young big man Nogueira GREGORY STRONG
THE CANADIAN PRESS
TORONTO — After riding the bench for most of his first two NBA seasons, Toronto Raptors centre Lucas (Bebe) Nogueira made some changes on and off the court. He started going to bed early, hit the gym more often and improved his work ethic. Nogueira doesn’t go out as often and has completely stopped drinking alcohol. Motivated by the arrival of his baby daughter, Nogueira is showing some of his potential now that he’s more focused and playing a more prominent role. He’s averaging over 20 minutes of court time per game this season and has taken advantage of the opportunity. “The sky is the limit for the kid because he’s got a lot of God-given talent,’’ said Raptors coach Dwane Casey. “He just needs to make sure he continues to work at it, to seriously approach his job in that way because he’s a great kid. He’s a lovable kid, all of his teammates love him, the coaches love him. “But he’s just got to make sure he understands that [he’s] got to continue on this path to be as great a player as he can be.’’ Nogueira said he’s injury-free and has much more energy on the court this season. That has allowed him to make better use of his seven-foot 220-pound frame to block shots, open the court for his teammates and help with transition play. Serving primarily as a backup to starter Jonas Valanciunas, Nogueira is averaging 4.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocks a game. He appears more comfortable this season and has offered a lively, energetic presence that often gives his team a boost. “My focus is to keep playing and having fun because I’ve been sitting on the bench for a long time,’’ Nogueira said yesterday after prac-
tice at the BioSteel Centre. “Now my chance is coming, so I want to take advantage of this [and play] for as many years as I can.’’ The 24-year-old Brazilian played in Spain before making six appearances for the Raptors in the 2014-2015 season. He played in 29 games in 2015-2016 and has already surpassed that this season with 31 appearances, including a pair of starts. Nogueira said cutting out the “little bit’’ of alcohol he was consuming made a significant difference. “I changed a couple bad habits during the summer,’’ he said. “I put the work in over the summer and started working harder, being humble, and being more professional. I think this is the reason that things are going way better than my first two years.’’ His eyes really light up when he talks about his seven-week-old daughter, Stella. “My daughter made me change,’’ Nogueira said. “I saw my career going down. Two years you sit on the bench, the chance [may] never come. During the summer, I realized it wasn’t the coach’s fault. It was my fault. I [wasn’t] doing the extra [work] or doing the right things to [stay] on the court. I realized in the summer and I put in the work in the summer because I knew the chance was going to be coming, and now I’m so happy that things are going well. “But, like I said, it was nobody [else’s] fault. It was my fault. I realized when I had my daughter that I’ve got to feed her now. So this is the reason that makes me wake up and go get it.’’ Nogueira has taken on the primary backup role that Bismack Biyombo — now with the Orlando Magic — had last season. The former teammates still keep in touch. “He’s so proud because when he left, he told me to go get it because this is going to be my year,’’ Nogueira said.

SUSPECT CAUGHT ON CAMERA On Wednesday, December 14th shortly before noon, a male entered a store in the Valleyview Mall and stole a couple of items. This male was very calm when he was in the store and some of the staff remember this male just walking around the store looking at the various items. The male finally left the store, one of the store employees went back to the area where the suspect was spending a length of time at. The employee noticed a couple of items were missing
from the a that area of the store. A review of the security camera has identified this person as the suspect in the theft. He is described as a Caucasian male, early 50’s, bald, he also has a grey goatee, it appears he has a tattoo on his left hand near his thumb and an ear ring in his left ear. There is no doubt this is not the first the male was involved in this type of activity, let’s identify this person so he can be arrested. If you know who this suspect is
please contact Crime Stoppers, only your information will be used, never your name.
DO YOU KNOW THIS PERSON The RCMP need your help in identifying this suspect. On January 6th this male walked into a store in the Aberdeen area, he looked around for a short period of time. He pretended to look at a couple of items as if he was going to buy them, then grabbed the item and ran out of the store. This suspect may have thought he had gotten away with the theft but a security camera captured a photo of this suspect.
The male is described as Caucasian, mid 20’s, dark hair, with a mole on the right side of his face just above the jaw line. The male was wearing a red ski jacket with a hood and had on a black and blue checkered toque on. If you know this person, please contact Crime Stoppers, you will never have to go to court or give a statement.

Canadian NHL teams all thinking playoffs JONAS SIEGEL
THE CANADIAN PRESS
Playoff hockey is likely returning to Canada this spring. All seven Canadian NHL teams are either in or close to a playoff spot at the season’s midway point, meaning a repeat of last year’s calamity — which saw every team in Canada miss the post-season for the first time in 46 years — probably won’t happen again. Here is a look at the progress of each team so far:
Playoff spot: Yes MVP: Carey Price Report: The Canadiens have returned to a place of Eastern Conference prominence and it starts with Price, who didn’t lose his first start until mid-November and is again boasting elite numbers at the game’s most important position. Shea Weber, meanwhile, has thrived in a difficult role as a
first-year Hab, Alex Radulov has been a star reborn in his return to North America and Max Pacioretty has been typically potent following a slow start.
OTTAWA SENATORS Playoff spot: Yes MVP: Erik Karlsson Report: The Senators fired Dave Cameron and hired Guy Boucher with hopes of stirring a rebirth and indeed that’s what happened so far. Ottawa has cut down the shots against, improved its special teams and puck possession (slightly) and become a (shaky) playoff contender once more. Kyle Turris and Mark Stone are having nice years and though Karlsson has slowed some from last year’s ridiculous 82-point campaign, the captain still offers Ottawa an engine from the back end.
TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS Playoff spot: On the bubble MVP: Auston Matthews
Report: The Leafs didn’t expect to be this good so soon. Their youngsters are playing better than even they might have anticipated so far. And it’s not only Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, already impact players at 19, but fellow rookies like Nikita Zaitsev, Zach Hyman and William Nylander who have made a considerable difference in Toronto. Stack that on top of solid seasons from veterans such as Nazem Kadri, James van Riemsdyk and Jake Gardiner as well as goaltending stability from Frederik Andersen and the Leafs find themselves in the unlikely post-season mix.
out with a concussion. Beyond the obvious and immediate impact of Laine, Winnipeg has received big contributions and notable leaps forward from Scheifele and 20-year-old Nikolaj Ehlers. Rookie Josh Morrissey has also capably handled top-pairing duties alongside Dustin Byfuglien and 23-year-old Connor Hellebuyck has shown flashes of potential as the team’s No. 1 goalie. It’s hard to say how good the Jets are or could be since they’ve yet to dress a truly complete lineup, but playoffs aren’t out of the question.
Playoff spot: Yes MVP: Connor McDavid Report: An MVP candidate who finally turns 20 on Friday, McDavid has the Oilers thinking playoffs for the first time in more than a decade. Patrick Maroon has found a comfortable fit at his side, surprisingly among the league leaders in even-strength goals
Playoff spot: On the bubble MVP: Mark Scheifele Report: The Jets have hung around the playoff race despite Jacob Trouba’s lengthy contract dispute and a number of injured players, including star rookie Patrik Laine, who’s
CALGARY FLAMES Playoff spot: Yes MVP: Chad Johnson Report: The Flames hoped a change in goal would help them get back in playoff contention only it’s been Johnson, not Brian Elliott, who’s offered that boost. Perhaps most encouraging is the club’s standing despite relatively slow first halves from Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Rookie Matthew Tkachuk has been a pleasant surprise, as have linemates Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik. Dougie
this season. Leon Draisaitl continues to quietly rise and Cam Talbot remains a solid presence in goal, while off-season acquisitions like Adam Larsson, Milan Lucic and Kris Russell have all helped to varying degrees. With strong underlying numbers, good special teams and McDavid, postseason hockey in Edmonton appears likely for the first time since 2006.
Hamilton, otherwise, has impressed since he joined captain Mark Giordano on the team’s top pair. If Gaudreau and Monahan get going and the goaltending keeps up, the Flames have a reasonable chance of cracking the post-season for only the second time since 2009.
VANCOUVER CANUCKS Playoff spot: On the bubble MVP: Bo Horvat Report: The Canucks looked like a team that would finish in the NHL basement when they dropped nine straight early this season, but they’ve been OK since, even reeling off a six-game win streak recently. Horvat, in particular, has surged, well on his way to career-highs in just about every offensive category while also earning his first all-star nod at age 21. His frequent running mate, Sven Baertschi, has put up almost a point per game since early November.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dale Scherer on Wednesday, January 11th, 2017 at Brocklehurst Gemstone Care Facility. After being raised in Alberta, Dale moved to Kamloops in 1974 with his wife Marg. He quickly took up residence as a teacher, then principal and vice principal at St. Ann’s Academy for 32 years. It was very common for others to first hear about him as one of the finest people you could ever meet. He brought inspiration and joy to the many staff, students and parents that he encountered over the years. Dale was a founding member of the Knights of Columbus Council at Holy Family Parish. His Catholic faith was very important to him throughout his life. Dale had an enormous love of sports, in particular, any game that he could watch of the Calgary Flames or Stampeders. He also had seasons tickets for the local Kamloops Blazers. He faced his life-ending disease, MSA, with great strength, patience, and faith in God’s plan. Right up to the end, he continued to teach those around him lessons in humility, compassion and dignity. He is lovingly remembered by his daughter Andrea (Ross) Scherer-White, son Trent (Joe) Scherer, granddaughter Jane White, sisters Dianne Langevin and Geralynn (Leo) Fleck, many nieces and nephews as well as numerous friends and relatives. He is predeceased by his wife Marg, parents John and Kay Scherer and brother LaVerne. Funeral Prayers will take place on Friday, January 13th at 7:00 pm at Holy Family Parish. The Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, January 14th at 10:30 am at Holy Family Parish. Interment to follow at Hillside Cemetery.

Obituaries & In Memoriam Leonard Alexander Wal The family of Leonard Alexander Wal are saddened to announce his passing on January 4, 2017.
After attending school, he completed a Carpenters Apprenticeship in 1958. He worked in several areas of BC doing construction, teaching transit/ level and slip form construction, coordinating Carpenter upgrade and detail drafting. He was a member of the Carpenters Union Local 1540. He was a NAUI scuba diving instructor from 1967-1994 and taught hundreds of students in the Kamloops and Vancouver areas, as well as doing commercial diving for 14 years. Many of his students became lifelong friends. His last job was at the Kamloops Pulp & Paper Mill, retiring in 1994. He thrived on humour and told many a joke. Although he suffered a stroke in 1995, he was still able to enjoy an annual fall vacation to many wonderful parts of the world until 2014. Following a fall at home in 2015, he became incapacitated and required care at a facility until his passing. Len and his family very much appreciated and thank the staff for their care and kindness received at Ponderosa Lodge in Kamloops and Jubilee Lodge in Prince George. For anyone wishing to honour Len, please consider a donation to the SPCA.
Bruce was an outgoing, very social and generous man and loving husband and father, who passionately enjoyed working with the Kinsmen organizations in each of his communities, that his Father, Trevor Thompson co-founded in 1920 in Hamilton, Ontario. He was proud of his work as a Bank Manager with the Royal Bank for over 30 years and was a loyal Calgary Hitmen Fan. Upon retirement from Royal Bank, Bruce worked for CCH and earned the proud title of Top Producer in North America. Bruce was predeceased by his adoring wife and best friend Sandy Thompson (Powell) in 2005 and brother Dr. Trevor Thompson of Kingston, Ontario. Bruce is survived by his loving son Ken Thompson (wife Brenda Fisher) of Coldstream, BC and daughter Kelly and nephew Brandon and niece Ashley of Calgary, Alberta. He is also survived by his sister-inlaw Patricia of Kingston, Ontario, sisters Anne Louise Stark of London, Ontario and Elizabeth (Liz) Lindsay of Ontario and by his loving friends Ted and Norma Garnett of Penticton, BC.
George arrived in the Kamloops area in the mid 1960’s. He owned and operated Dominic Lake Resort for a time, then purchased Knouff Lake Resort. He was also owner/operator of Falcann Septic Service and Portable Toilet Rentals from the mid 1970’s until his death. George was on the Cattle Drive Committee in its first couple of years, 1991 and 1992. George’s passion when he wasn’t working was racing his pony chariot and chuck wagon teams at Barriere and other locations in the province. One of his other passions was dancing....several nights a week.
He will be deeply missed by many numerous dear friends and colleagues in each community he lived and worked in and by his loving family.
A Celebration of George’s Life will be held later in the Spring when travel conditions are better. We will do it George style......lots of food, music and dancing.
Memorial donations may be made in Bruce’s name to the Canadian Alzheimer’s Association at www.alzheimer.ca or 20 Eglington Avenue West, 16th Floor, Toronto, Ontario M4R 1K8.
For those who wish, memorial contributions may be made to the Kamloops Stroke Recovery Club, 957 Desmond Street, Kamloops, BC V2B 5K7.

In 1953, Gordon signed with the Canadian Army and was stationed in Korea and Japan working for the British Embassy as their driver. He received an honourable discharge in May 1956. Gordon met Ida, the love of his life, in Pinantan, B.C. in the fall of 1956. Despite warnings of ranchers with diamond rings in their pockets, Ida and Gordon were married on March 2, 1957. Soon to follow were their two sons Joe and George. It was during this time that Gordon built a
Petronilla (Gartner) Pedrotti
successful trucking company which continued for over 40 years. Gordon was a people person. His outgoing personality touched many people in many ways. First and foremost he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. The dynamic duo of Gordon and Ed Kashluba entertained everywhere they went. People would start laughing before they went through the door. Gordon enjoyed hunting, fishing and travelling. Gordon and Ida spent many winters in Hawaii with family and friends. Gordon’s passing has left a tremendous void in our lives. The family would like to thank all the health care professionals that took care of Gordon during his lengthy illness.

Sustainable Energy Association groups, Ste Marie hopes her art points to alternative ways of living that are more environmentally friendly and ecoconscious. Another piece, The Great Re-Skilling, focuses on images of canning, gardening and other skills from past generations. “A lot of people have the feeling that oh, we have to give up all of this stuff, because we aren’t going to have electricity for all of our things. But, it’s not really that. People 100 years ago were still happy,” she said. Ste Marie’s paintings, along with a reclaimed wood sculpture by Vaughn Warren, and photographs, collages and other works from Kamloopsians across the community, form the Everyday Sustainable Energy Superheroes Exhibition, opening tomorrow at the Kamloops Art Gallery, 465 Victoria St. Organizer James Gordon said the show is a creation of the B.C. Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA), which hopes to showcase ways the city is becoming more environmentally friendly. “In this age we live in, it seems like environmental bad news is easy to come across, for climate change and the acidification of the oceans and everything else, but there’s also a lot of great

stuff going on,” he said. In some cases, the works showcase fairly simple actions — a photo of a clothesline hung with laundry in winter. Others tackle ambitious efforts like the Darfield Earthship, a selfsustaining home near Barriere, or a water-collection system used in a back-country lodge. BCSEA members have also interviewed 11 of Kamloops’ most eco-conscious and will show snippets of the videos in the BMO Open Gallery, with longer versions available online. Gordon said the show acts as both an inspiration to others and a celebration of efforts already underway. “Everybody needs a pat on the back sometimes,” he said. “Oftentimes using sustainable energy does require more effort and planning. You can’t just jump into your car if you need a quart of milk or a new video. You’ve got to plan these things in advance.” The show runs to March 25, with a reception tomorrow night.

BINGE-WORTHY HBO SHOW
22, A MILLION
BON IVER’S LATEST ALBUM
ith the recent release of Bon Iver’s 22, A Million, I’m enthralled by a few
songs. When it dropped in the fall, it had been five years since the indie group’s last album. In a statement on the band’s website, it is described as “part love letter, part final resting place of two decades of searching for self-understanding like a reli-
gion. And the inner-resolution of maybe never find that understanding.” I get an experimental Trent Reznor vibe for some of the tracks, which are slightly out there for me, but 00000 Million, 8(circle) and 29 #Strafford APTS are on play and repeat. Check them out on Spotify, Google Play and Apple Music. — Jessica Wallace
t’s a television show that makes me grateful for advancements in technology allowing me to pause and rewind — just to figure out what the heck just happened. Westworld — not to be mistaken for Westwold, the small town southeast of Kamloops — is part sci-fi, part western, part wacky Anthony Hopkins. The premise of the show, which just wrapped up its first season, is the inner workings of
security) and Ed Harris (park guest). Rotten Tomatoes gives it 89 per cent on its so-called Tomatometer and the audience scored it even higher at 92 per cent. I binge-watched the 10 episodes via OnDemand and look forward to another season of pausing and rewinding, since the show has apparently been renewed for season two to be released next year. — Jessica Wallace
A SPORT OF A DIFFERENT SORT
’m not a fan of the Bachelor but, when a group of my friends joined a fantasy league dedicated to the reality-television series, I couldn’t help but join in the friendly competition. Who will Nick take on a group date? Who will make it to the final four? Who really cares, but these are some of the questions asked in advance of episodes airing. ESPN added Bachelor to it’s myriad sports fantasy leagues
an amusement park for adults that allows guests to experience a real-life western complete with robots real enough to kill and have sex. Things get interesting when the robots begin to realize what’s going on. In true HBO fashion, it’s a high-quality production complete with a star-studded cast such as Hopkins (the brains behind the park), Evan Rachel Wood (a robot), Luke Hemsworth (park
available on its smartphone app and, having never been part of the popular online sports pastime, it’s fun to take part. Just to be clear, I think the show is awful. Gross, degrading, downright ridiculous — I have several other choice words. But, as ESPN boasts, “Guilty pleasure? Play now.” Download the ESPN Fantasy app and search for “The Bachelor Fantasy League” to join. — Jessica Wallace
LIKED SERIAL? YOU’LL LOVE THIS
overs of true-crime stories are missing out if they aren’t listening to podcasts. One that topped iTunes charts was Accused: The unsolved murder of Elizabeth Andes. Andes was found brutally murdered in her Ohio apartment in 1976. Her boyfriend was charged and acquitted, and police never searched further, but Cincinnati Enquirer reporter Amber Hunt revisits the case in great detail in Accused. Any podcast of this nature is inevitably compared to Serial, which dominated headlines in 2014. But Accused, the first podcast produced by the Enquirer, rises to the challenge. It’s format is very similar — interviews with

arts&entertainment The Kamloops Film Society starts its winter series on Thursday, Jan. 19 with Measure of a Man. The film, directed by Stephane Brize, is the story of an unemployed factory worker in France trying to make ends meet. As he goes from interview to interview unsuccessfully, his selfrespect starts to break down. The man ultimately gets a job that poses a moral dilemma for him. The drama stars Vincent Lindon — who won best actor last year at the Cannes Film Festival last year for his performance — along with Karine de Mirbeck and Matthieu Schaller. Other films in the series include The Meddler on Jan. 26, The Eagle Huntress on Feb. 9 and Things to Come on Feb. 23.
BRIEFS The movies are shown at Paramount Theatre, 503 Victoria St., starting at 7 p.m.

and the power to read minds, Monaghan does the sensible thing and uses his powers to become a contract killer in Gotham City. But don’t worry; as he explained to Batman in one of their many run-ins (you can’t keep killing criminals in Gotham City and not expect to cross paths with Batman) he’s not one of the bad guys, he only kills the bad guys. Sounds logical. Hitman is a lighthearted action/comedy series that ran for 60 issues (now collected in seven graphic novels). It has some real gem moments like Monaghan puking on Batman’s cape during one of said aforementioned run-ins and then there was the time he and his best friend Natt the Hat (known for wearing a hat) used a dead alley cat and a searchlight to make a Cat-Signal to get a hold of Catwoman. And it worked, too. My favourite Hitman story, though, is also one of my favourite comic book stories ever: Zombie Night at the Gotham Aquarium. Read that title again and let that sink in some more.

bies are you going to run into at Seaworld? Sure, a zombieshark sounds scary, but when you think about it, it’s not going too far when it’s in its tank and you’ve got a machine gun. So yes, this story is filled with the gang blowing away zombiepenguins, zombieseals, zombie-dolphins and other adorable and cuddly, although now zombified, aquatic life. When the hilarious carnage is finally over, the boys decide to give all the money they made taking the job in the first place to Green Peace. Balance restored. I mean, don’t get me wrong. Hitman isn’t just insanity — it really is a well-rounded series. There’s plenty of love, laughter and a fair
bit of tragedy to equal things out. You and your loveable loser friends don’t get into the contract-killer business and come out unharmed. Nor do your loved ones. Ennis does an amazing job getting the reader to care about these characters and McCrea is right there with him, never missing a beat with his wild and kinetic artwork that can be grounded and serious at just the right moments. Hitman also has a superhero named Dogwelder. He welds dogs to people. So that’s a thing.

K, so we all know Batman is the defender of Gotham City, right? Gotham City is based on New York City and, seeing as how New York has a population of eight-million people, it figures Gotham City is about the same. So, eight-million people to one Batman. That’s a lot of crime Batman can’t get to on a nightly basis. It stands to reason there would be other superheroes in Gotham, then. And, no, Robin doesn’t count. Even then, Dick Grayson, the original Robin, is now known as Nightwing and he moved away to Bludhaven, so he’s not even in Gotham anymore. And, while we’re on the topic, you seriously called your town Bludhaven? It doesn’t exactly scream friendly now does it? Might as well move to Grizzlydeth. I don’t care how temperate the climate is, I’m not moving to Grizzlydeth. Anyway, who else might be defending Gotham City? Well, there’s Tommy Monaghan — a.k.a. Hitman. In 1995, writer Garth Ennis was on a rocket ride to the moon with the hit comic series Preacher (which the current AMC television show is loosely adapted from). Ennis’ smash hit somewhat overshadowed the other amazing book he was working on at the time with artist John McCrea — Hitman. Given X-Ray vision

Review: Beyond the Pale a difficult, rewarding read
THE MORE THINGS YOU WILL KNOW
Four-year-old Bennet Rintoul donates classic tales by Dr. Seus during the annual Heap the Honda Children’s Book Drive. The event is a partnership between Literacy in Kamloops and Kamloops Honda and runs through Jan. 28. New or gently used kids’ books can be dropped off at Kamloops Honda, 1308 Josep Way. They can also be taken to the North Shore Library, 693 Tranquille Rd., South Shore Library, 465 Victoria St., the Henry Grube Education Centre, 245 Kitchener Cres., or any Bright Red Bookshelf location. On Friday, Jan. 20, the Cat in the Hat and Things One and Two will also be at the Kamloops Blazers game at Sandman Centre to accept book donations.
eading Emily Urquhart’s autobiographical and well-researched book Beyond the Pale: Folklore, Family, and the Mystery of Our Hidden Genes was a pleasure, despite some difficult content. It was even more so because I have the honour of claiming Emily as a friend, colleague and fellow folklorist. It seems strange reading parts of this story as I was living only two doors away when Sadie, the crux of Beyond the Pale was born. Hearing Emily’s words about her experiences and emotions in those early days is a revelation and reading her journey of discovery helps me understand, if only a little, how much love she has for her daughter. Beyond the Pale is an autobiography that delves deeper than just one family’s story. Urquhart’s daughter Sadie “was born in the usual excruciating way Boxing Day 2010,” and everyone is struck by the wee baby’s “shock of white hair” and soft blue eyes. Though both Ontario natives, Sadie was born in Newfoundland and Emily and her husband, Andrew Trant, are bemused at the many remarks on their newborn’s “some white” hair. A week later, Trant’s parents arrive, his father a doctor who suspects Sadie has

albinism, a rare genetic condition characterized by a lack of pigment in a person’s eyes, hair and skin. Urquhart, a researcher and writer at heart, uses her knowledge of folklore — “the intimate truths we reveal through the stories we tell” — to begin a journey into understanding her daughter’s condition and the issues, both physical and social, Sadie may face in future. She states in her prologue: “After my daughter was born, I felt that knowing the cultural tales about people with [Sadie’s] condition, whether they were frightening or beautiful, would help me understand the shape of her life. “Because she will encounter these stories too: on the silver screen, via the Internet, in the news and from the lips of unpredictable strangers.” Touching briefly on the genetic codes which make up albinism, Urquhart is

shocked at the improbability surrounding the fact the gene must be present in both parents for it to manifest: “It is so rare, so improbable. “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, Andrew walks into the Ship Pub in St. John’s on a blustery June night. . . . The rest is genetic history.” Seeking to understand the cultural markers of this condition or, really, how the rest of the world will view her daughter as she grows up, Urquhart examines stories of white animals considered sacred, folk beliefs, the way Hollywood mocks or vilifies the “albino” in film and all of her concerns for how Sadie will see herself when she is faced with these tales and images. The darkest section of the book comes when Urquhart and Trant, leaving Sadie safely home with grandparents, travel to Tanzania in East Africa, a place where people with albinism, including many children, are hunted by poachers since the body parts are considered strong magical medicine, leaving them amputees or dead. Her descriptions of meeting with Adam and Mwanza, a young man and young boy attacked by poachers and both losing limbs, was especially poignant. Though difficult to read, Urquhart handles these tales with compassion. One is always reminded of the daughter at home in Canada. We are not reading simply about “something that happens over there” and
remaining disconnected. She has made us intimate with the funny, sassy young toddler, about how her life would have been so different were she born elsewhere. It brings the reader closer to the young men and women in Tanzania, facing discrimination and horror. The final section of Beyond the Pale comes back to Canada and Urquhart’s life — but now turning pages back into her family history. She discovers through old photographs family folklore, legend and ancestral research, there were evidences of albinism in her family in the late 1800s and possibly earlier. Though this section is at times unwieldy in its examination of Sadie’s complex lineage (reading someone else’s family tree can always be a bit of a slog), it also serves to bring a closer connection to Urquhart’s understanding of albinism as more than just a genetic condition for her daughter but a condition which acts as a strange kind of inheritance. There are concerns for Sadie as she grows older, the teasing, the strength of her vision or increased cancer rates through sun exposure, but this rare genetic condition has also connected her to a deeper understanding of her own family history — Sadie’s own complex cultural tale.

Feasting on the jungle’s bounty in Peru HANS TAMMEMAGI
IF YOU GO
SPECIAL TO KTW
Go ahead, touch it,” says Ericson, our guide, holding out a seven-foot-long rainbow boa constrictor squirming and wrapping itself around his arms. I inch forward and nervously slide my hand along the iridescent skin. Surprisingly, the snake feels smooth and, well, almost pleasant. Nevertheless, I quickly step back. We are deep in the Amazon jungle of northeast Peru, far from civilization, and I feel out of my element. Earlier, Ericson led us along a muddy trail into a dense maze of vines, multi-shaped leaves and towering trees. It’s hot, humid and loud with the buzz of mosquitos and insects. My shirt is dripping from perspiration. Then Ericson unexpectedly chopped his way with a machete into the thick jungle and grabbed the rainbow boa by the neck. Now, he is proudly holding it out to us. I’m on a cruise on the headwaters of the Amazon River. Each day, we leave the mothership for excursions to hike through dense jungle or skiff along meandering tributaries. We fish for piranha, feed bananas to monkeys and visit an impoverished village. We see pink dolphins, caimans, poisondart frogs, tarantulas, snakes and much more.
The Amazon jungle is a smorgasbord of every kind of edible biology imaginable, especially fruits and nuts. Starfruit, passion fruit, macambo, aguaje, tapereba and carambola are among such exotic delicacies. For more photos, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com.
It is exotic, but I feel an underlying nervousness, for if anything goes wrong, we are a long way from civilization. Our time aboard the Delfin II, in surreal contrast, is peaceful, safe and even hedonistic. There are only 24 passengers in 14 staterooms comfortably appointed with airconditioning, hot water, and, best of all, an enormous window offering grand views onto the mighty Amazon. Although there are many diversions — bar, spa, visiting the captain on the bridge — I most enjoy mealtimes in the dining room with its large windows, an open kitchen and tables artistically set. Today I join three,

well-travelled Australian business men. One says, with an Aussie twang, “I never imagined we’d dine so well in the middle of the jungle.” The waiter brings the first course. A curved tentacle of blackened octopus balances delicately on slices of passion fruit, which are set in a creamy reduction punctuated with black passion fruit seeds. A thread of glass noodle coils above it like wild white hair. I hesitate to bite into this imaginative creation, but finally succumb. Mmm — delicious! More great food follows and wine flows as we enthuse over the day’s adventures and
our sumptuous dinner. That evening, there is a presentation about indigenous nuts and fruits. Javier, a sous-chef, cuts open and offers us aguaje, macambo, tapereba and carambola. The tastes are fresh, exotic and varied. Little wonder, for the Amazon is a smorgasbord of every kind of edible biology imaginable. Javier explains with the rolling Rs of Spanish, “For a creative chef, the jungle provides a wonderland of culinary material.” Next day, we skiff through a winding tributary. Cawing and chirping surround us. We see macaws, egrets, storks and a sloth

hanging upside down from a branch. From a low-hanging branch, Ericson cuts several granadilla fruits, which resemble passion fruit. We travel in silence, each of us absorbed in the beauty and mystery of this bountiful crucible of life. We return to the Delfin II where executive chef, Israel Ijuha leads a cooking class. At 6-foot-2, Chef Ijuha towers over his compatriots. So do his culinary skills. He explains his style is Peruvian fusion with a strong Amazonian influence. He stresses the importance of fresh fish, nuts and fruit, which he sources from local

indigenous people. That explains the long wooden boats I’ve seen pull alongside, with natives passing loaded burlap bags to the crew. Ijuha proceeds to prepare jaune by placing slices of cooked chicken in rice he sprinkles with turmeric, oregano, cumin and garlic. “Peruvians love spices,” he says with a smile. He wraps servingsized portions of rice and chicken in large bijao leaves and ties it with twine. The result looks like a gift package and, indeed, we learn jaunes are exchanged between households during festivals. Appetite whetted, I head for the dining room where I join a

The dinner is elegantly presented and — no surprise — features jaune, accompanied by chicken shish-kabob and a dessert of peach compote. I bite into the jaune and it is delicious. “This is the best trip we’ve ever taken,” says the American lady. My mouth abuzz with exotic flavours, I can only nod in agreement.

FRIDAY, January 13, 2017
Shooting for transformation in 2017 Months ago, a friend recounted to me his experience with serious illness. He said he learned a new appreciation for ordinary life routines. He learned how precious were even the simple acts of being able to eat and drink and the importance of his digestive system. He learned how great it felt to have strength to walk. He said there were mornings he opened his eyes and realized he had lived to face a new day. He learned to give thanks for that day. How blessed we are to have been given the gift of life. All the things we take for granted are never fully appreciated until we face their absence. The beginning of a new year can be an inspiration to us for thanksgiving. We were blessed last year, even though we may have experienced difficulties and even
You gotta have
tragedies. In the face of the past, we can look toward the new year ahead with the hope Christ brings. For faith in Christ is always faith toward the future, toward tomorrow and the new day that is always ours in Christ. In order to make 2017 (and each year to come) a transformative year, it is good to keep three priorities in our day-to-day existence: • Remember our unchanging God (Psalm
90:1-12; Hebrews 13:28). It has been noted that when steam locomotives were first introduced in the U.S., Native Americans began fleeing from the “mightiest bull.” In our days when space travel is anticipated as a routine thing, a new loco would hardly be considered newsworthy. How times change. You and I change. Our spouses, friends and children change, too. So it is with human philosophies and philosophers of whom there seems to be no end. Man himself is a creature of change. If man’s soul does not have an eternal mooring, it drifts like an anchorless ship on a storm-tossed sea. But thank God, in the person of Christ, we have a Saviour who never changes. As a well-known hymn puts it: Change
and decay in all around I see, O Thou who changest not abide with me. If our faith is centred in an unchanging God, we can go through this new year with confidence and can anticipate his presence all through the year. The shifting scenes of earth need not shake the heart stayed upon him. The immutable God has redeemed us by his son if we belong to him. He sustains us and changes not. • Recognize the power of a godly goal. This is the season when many people set goals for their lives by making resolutions. Some shoot for giving up smoking or alcohol. Others decide to do holier things like getting more involved in the church. There are two mistakes commonly made in setting goals: putting them so high, they can never be achieved or setting sights too low.
These same two pitfalls hinder growth in our spiritual lives, as well. Christ-likeness is a lofty ideal. When we fall far short of it, we throw up our hands and exclaim “I just can’t do it.” So what do we end up doing? We lower the standard and appear to be no different than a morally upright unbeliever. Yet, as Christians, our goal holds the promise of future attainment even though it’s not to be fully realized until we get to heaven. This helps keep us pressing on as long as we live and prevents us from deceiving ourself and saying with a finality, “I’ve arrived, I no longer sin” (see 1 John 1:8). But, in one sense, the goal is workable because God has promised to empower us to achieve new plateaus of holiness.
What is impractical in our own strength is possible in his strength. • Recommit yourself to the service of God. The story is told that once in Denmark, a famous sculptor was asked which of his statutes was the greatest. He replied by saying “the next one.” Evidently, he was never content to rest upon his laurels. He sought continual improvement. His constant hope and driving desire were that his most noble achievement was still ahead. That’s the way we should feel about service for Christ. Regardless of past accomplishments, we recognize it is always possible to do a better job, no matter what position or responsibility we hold. That realization would keep us pressing onward and upward. Rejecting the assumption we have
“arrived” because of a recent success, we should always determine to make the “next one” our highest achievement for the Lord. These thoughts are especially appropriate as we enter a new year. For some of us, perhaps, 2016 was a year of success in business or work and spiritual victories. We can look back with personal satisfaction. But when we do this, we face the danger of being lulled into complacency. In this first month of 2017, let us say with the Apostle Paul: I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13). An anonymous writer said: The room for improvement is the largest room in the world. ryanmitra225@gmail. com
