ROADS OF RUIN

Jim and Sherry Carroll are among nearly 200 residents dealing with hazardous public roads as they travel to and from their homes and businesses in Knutsford. Located just south of City of Kamloops boundaries, the Argo-maintained roads of pavement and secondary dirt routes have become almost impassable, especially when it rains. Calls by residents to both Argo Road and Ministry of Highways officials have not brought help needed. Jim Carroll says in his many years of travelling along Rose Hill, Deleeuw and Scott roads, he’s never seen it so bad. SEE STORY ON PAGE A10.

Valleyview secondary will likely receive good news on Friday, as Education Minister Rob Fleming will be at the school for a funding announcement. Ministry spokesperson Sean Leslie confirmed Fleming will be in Kamloops, but wouldn’t divulge further details regarding the announcement. Fleming will be at the school on 1950 Valleyview Dr. at 2 p.m. to announce provincial funding for expansion at the overcrowded facility. “It will be very exciting,” Leslie said of the announcement. School District 73 submitted a project definition report to the ministry last fall. It is unclear if the announcement will be for an addition to the existing school or a new facility on that site entirely — which was an option the school

district was asked to provide in its report. SD73, however, did recommend the expansion option to the government rather than a replacement. Since submitting the report, the total project budget has increased from approximately $26 million to a little more than $34 million, to adjust for the ministry’s increased unit rate for construction and market escalation over the life of the project.

Kelson Group to buy Paramount LANDMARK CINEMAS WILL CEASE OPERATIONS OF THEATRE ON APRIL 17, BUT NEW OWNERS ARE WORKING TO HAVE SOMEONE KEEP RUNNING THE PROJECTORS The Paramount Theatre has been the home of non-mainstream movies for decades. Landmark Cinemas is selling the building to the Kelson Group. April 18 is set to be the final movie date before the theatre ceases operations. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

JESSICA WALLACE AND SEAN BRADY

STAFF REPORTERS

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

While Landmark Cinemas has announced it will cease operations of Paramount Theatre in downtown Kamloops, KTW has learned the building is in the process of or has been sold to Kelson Group, which is owned by local arts supporter Ron Fawcett. Kelson Group has been redeveloping parts of downtown Kamloops and the Fawcetts are behind a proposal for a performing-arts centre on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Seymour Street, just one block south of the Paramount. KTW reached out to Ron Fawcett, who said the sale is still in the works. Asked about the fate of the old theatre, he would not comment, but did say an announcement on the future of the building may be made on April 18. “We’re trying to find a solution to keep the theatre operating, but at this point, we’re not ready to make an announcement,” Jason Fawcett of the Kelson Group told KTW. “Hopefully next week will have more details for the community.” He said the company is intending to buy the building next week, provided closing happens on time. He said Kelson Group is working with a potential operator to keep the movies running. Landmark Cinemas CEO Bill Walker told KTW the company, which is pulling out of the Kamloops market

for good on April 17, is leaving behind an “operational theatre,” complete with sound systems and projectors. “Particularly for the [Kamloops] Film Society that is quite active, we’re hopeful and they’re hopeful that they will continue to operate their film society and film festivals through that centre until such time that it gets redeveloped,” Walker said. He said the Kamloops Film Society will host an event on April 18, a day after Landmark’s final showings of the movies Hotel Mumbai and Five Feet Apart. Walker said Landmark decided to sell due to a tough market. The company owns 44 theatres across the country, including 13 in B.C. “For us, that theatre in its format in competition with Cineplex, it was difficult for us to make it overly profitable or really make any profit there,” he said. “The developer has a long-term view of what they think they can do with the property. There was good

value in the underlying real estate and there is a lot of new developments going on in downtown Kamloops, which is nice to see. And I think the Kelson Group sees an opportunity long term to do something different.” Landmark Cinemas announced it would cease operations of Paramount Theatre on its website: “Attention movie lovers: Landmark Cinemas will cease operations of this location, end of day on April 17, 2019. We’d like to thank you for your patronage over the years.” A staff member at the theatre confirmed to KTW that staff were informed on April 1 and about 10 parttime employees will lose their jobs as a result. “It kind of came out of the blue for all of us,” the staff member said. “Nobody saw it coming.” Walker said from Landmark’s perspective, layoffs had to be done. However, he noted the “possibility” of opportunities with Kamloops Film Society,

being that staff are knowledgable with the equipment and building. “Nothing that we can guarantee,” Walker said. “So, from our perspective, we do need to lay them off and that’s just an unfortunate reality in these processes.” Kamloops Film Society executive director Dusan Magdolen said it would be sad if the theatre closes permanently, but noted the society is holding out hope new ownership will continue operating the building as a theatre and allow the film society to continue using it. “If we lose that venue, it’s a huge hit for us,” he said. Magdolen said if the film series and festival do need to move, Cineplex Cinemas at Aberdeen Mall may be an option for the series. The festival, which he said is more nimble, could change to something held at various venues all across town. Magdolen said he was aware Paramount probably wasn’t doing “gangbuster numbers” for Landmark and the society has previously

discussed venues in its strategic planning. “For this, we haven’t had those conversations because we want to see how it shakes out. But it’s definitely a concern,” he said. The final film in the society’s spring film series is Stockholm, which will be screened on April 18. The theatre has for decades been located downtown. Walker thanked moviegoers who have supported the theatre. “We enjoyed our time and place in the community,” he said, citing the history of the Paramount. “Sometimes the industry just changes and, certainly, the competitive nature unfortunately makes it what it is, as it is now. But we are happy to see it go to a group that can re-invest in it and eventually can make it into something that is an additive to the downtown core. ““These theatre projects don’t always turn out this well, so we’re hopeful that the Kelson Group can do something great.”

VICTORIA STREET WEST IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT STARTS APRIL 15 Extreme Excavating will begin construction of the City’s Victoria Street West Improvements Project on Monday, April 15, starting at the east end of the corridor near 1st Avenue. The work will be carried out over the next 18 months to two years. Construction will take place Monday–Friday, 7:00 am–5:30 pm, with additional night and weekend work as required. Two lanes of traffic (one in each direction) will be maintained through the construction zone. Businesses will be open and accessible throughout the project.

To learn more, visit:

The City is asking motorists to zipper merge when approaching the construction zone. Drivers are encouraged to use both lanes until the point of merging, and then take turns to safely ease into the remaining lane. Maximizing the full use of two lanes until the point of merging can reduce congestion and help keep traffic flowing.

Now is the time.” McCorkell expects more information by mid-summer.

LOCAL NEWS

Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian made no apologies on Tuesday for what he called a “passion” for solving a crisis killing dozens of Kamloops residents annually. Last year, 48 people died locally from illicit drug overdoses, primarily drugs contaminated with fentanyl. In 2017, 38 people died. In 2016, there were 44 deaths. “If anyone in the front row [in council chambers] had come to us with a death from a swimming pool or a death from a hockey rink or a death from a crosswalk, we would be all over it,” Christian told an Interior Health delegation, which travelled from Kelowna to Kamloops for a face-to-face meeting to discuss addictions treatment programs. “And yet you come every year with 50 deaths in our population. That is just of grave concern to myself and to our council.” Council heard from IH that harm reduction continues to be most effective, following a significant spike in overdose deaths in 2016 that has not let up. In 2008, the province recorded 183 overdose deaths. A decade later, in 2018, the province recorded 1,510 overdose deaths. Through the end of January, two people have died this year in Kamloops by overdose. According to coroners information, most of the deaths involve men between the ages of 30 and 39 and 50 and 54 and occur in private residences. Interior Health said it is addressing the crisis with services based on people’s relationships with drugs. People who don’t use drugs are targeted through education and peer engagement, while those who

Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian said the number of overdose deaths is of grave concern to city council.

experiment with drugs or use occasionally can access naloxone and harm-reduction supplies. People with substance-use disorders have the most resources, including supervised drug-use sites. However, two of every three people dying by overdose are doing so behind closed doors and IH mental-health and substance-use administrator Deborah Morris acknowledged a “hidden population,” with education and destigmatization the only answers given about how to help. IH said society’s negative view of people with substance-use problems prevents them from accessing help. IH medical health officer Dr. Kamran Golmohammadi called on families, community members and the media to help remove barriers. Pushed outside of council chambers on whether removing stigma is enough, Golmohammadi said: “It is not enough, for sure. So education is another point. What we have through different channels. “Media has done outstanding work in providing relevant information to people who either occasionally use or recreationally

use about the dangers of these substances. “We feel media has played a very important role in informing the general public with relevant and helpful information.” Coun. Dieter Dudy asked if IH would be willing to lobby for decriminalization or legalization of illicit drugs, given drugs are not safe and people continue to use and use alone. Golmohammadi would not go that far, but said health officers agree strict rules around safe substances is one of the most effective ways to prevent overdose deaths. “We have now trying and piloting injectable opioid-agonist therapy in Kelowna and we are exploring other communities, as well,” Golmohammadi said. Coun. Bill Sarai did not mince words. He expressed concerns about providing syringes to drug users to purchase drugs illegally, shoot up and “cause havoc in our city.” Sarai said drug users repeatedly return to supervised drug-use sites in Kamloops and believes harm reduction is not working. “Some of those same people are coming back to you and ODing in front of you and you’re reviving them and then you’re throwing stats out there that we saved some lives,” Sarai said. “Those people aren’t coming there to ask you to help them. In my opinion, from what I’ve heard, they come there because they’re looking for that next high.” Interior Health’s mobile supervised drug-use site — a converted RV that stops downtown and in North Kamloops — has had more than 10,000 visits, with 1,400 of them for supervised drug use. Since opening, there have been 37 overdoses reversed at the sites and no deaths.

PLAN NOT MUSIC TO EARS OF MANY

W

hat defines talent? How does one know if that person playing the guitar at the corner of Fourth and Victoria is any good? If one person applauds and hands her a twoonie, is that validation of her talent? What is the next person walks away plugging his ears? Does that mean our guitarist is a lousy musician? Talent, like beauty, is in the eye (and ear) of the beholder, which makes a controversial plan by the city to licence buskers downtown all the more bewildering. No sooner had KTW published the story in its April 10 print edition and online than the comments began pouring in. And pour in they did, with our Facebook page logging 186 comments as of yesterday afternoon — virtually all condemning the licensing idea. The intent is clear. The city wants to differentiate between actual performers and panhandlers. But the question arises: Can a homeless person playing music for donations be considered any different than a person with an address performing for the same reason? Under the proposal, which has yet to go to council, approved performers would be vetted by the Kamloops Art Council and be required to pay $40 for the right to use city streets as their stage. Like the overwhelming majority on our Facebook page decried the idea, Coun. Mike O’Reilly — who owns a coffee shop on Victoria Street — was equally skeptical. “I don’t mind somebody juggling to try and make a little bit of money instead of going and breaking into a car,” he said. Based on the response to the proposal, don’t be surprised to see the idea modified significantly or scrapped altogether.

For the record, a recap

A

s various locals fight a move by the provincial government to ship land title documents from Kamloops to Victoria, it is interesting to look back 16 years, when officials in the Lower Mainland were fighting to stop their records from being moved to Kamloops. And, amid this political soap opera that is so blatantly transparent in its partisanship, we should also pause and remember that no political party is innocent in this land title tumult. The current NDP government certainly deserves to have its knuckles rapped for making an utter mess of this issue. To recap, the two Kamloops B.C. Liberal MLAs — Todd Stone and Peter Milobar — were doing their jobs well when, a couple of months ago, they mentioned hearing rumours the Kamloops land title office might be closing. It turns out they were on to something. While the office isn’t scheduled to close (yet), land title officials finally confirmed to media that documents stored here would be moving to Victoria and that staff in Kamloops would be leaving their offices in the Kamloops Law Courts to a yet-to-be-determined location in the city. In a March 21 email to KTW reporter Sean Brady, the Land Title and Survey Authority said: “We are currently seeking alternate space in Kamloops, which will be a smaller, modern office in keeping with the quality of our other land title offices in Victoria and New Westminster.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS “The Kamloops hard copy records will be moving to our stateof-the-art vault space in Victoria, where they will be conserved as required. There will be no reduction in staff in our Kamloops office.” That was close as anybody has come, as far as I can tell, in trying to find out why the records are being moved. That they are being moved without consultations with local MLAs, city council or First Nations in the area is offensive. And it has prompted Whispering Pines Clinton Indian Band Chief Michael LeBourdais to launch legal action this week to stop the movement of the original documents. While the current NDP government, from Premier John Horgan down to Forests Minister Doug Donaldson (whose ministry administers land title registries), should be criticized for this boondoggle, let’s not forget that other governments under different political flags have done exactly the same thing with land title offices —

including the B.C. Liberals. For more than a century, there had been seven land title offices in the province: Kamloops, Nelson, Prince George, Prince Rupert, New Westminster, Vancouver and Victoria. Following the NDP’s election in 1991, those seven offices began to be reduced, with Vancouver records moving to New Westminster, Prince Rupert records moving to Prince George and Nelson records moving to Kamloops. In 2003, under the B.C. Liberals, the Prince George land title office was closed and all its records moved to New Westminster. At that time, the B.C. Liberals also announced plans to close the Kamloops and Victoria land title offices and move those records to New Westminster. (So, as we can see, such decisions are not exclusive to particular political parties.) But, as a Kamloops Daily News article of April 5, 2003, notes, thenpremier Gordon Campbell was praising a plan by Kamloopsians — including then-mayor Mel Rothenburger — to convince the province to instead move the New Westminster records to Kamloops and use this city as a centralized land title registry. Alas, Vancouver city council and others in the Lower Mainland balked at the plan, leaving the land title grouping as we see it today. This brief history illustrates that how dastardly a government decision is remains predicated on which side of the legislature aisle one sits. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

HOUSE PRICES ARE TOO HIGH MAKE CULTURE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL Editor: Re: KTW’s front-page story of April 10, regarding a proposal to have street performers buy licences (‘Pay to play in Kamloops?’): Instead of arguing about who can be a busker, how long they can busk and who controls them, we should be using our time, brainpower and energy toward developing our cultural resources and cultural landscape. Here is one way to consider that — an alternative vision for Kamloops’ cultural future. Consider an access culture network, where culture is accessible to everyone, every day in Kamloops. Thanks to the city’s access culture network, consisting of a network of municipal performances and exhibition halls, all citizens can enjoy an array of cultural outings. This network would include municipal venues that present free or inexpensive cultural activities in some 10 locations throughout the city. In addition to a broad range of programming, the access culture network would offer artist residencies, cultural mediation, mentoring activities and events of interest to the general public, seniors, families (young audiences), people with disabilities and school groups. The mission of the access culture network would be to make culture accessible to everyone based on principles of democracy and fairness and to encourage Kamloopsians to take part in the cultural life of their neighbourhoods. Glenn Hilke Kamloops

Editor: So, the new median price for a Kamloops residential home is $502,000, according to an April 3 KTW article (‘Median price for home sales in Kamloops crosses half-million-dollar mark for first time’). In the mid-1960s, a new three-bedroom split-level house in Delta sold for between $7,900 and $9,900. In 1970, the average price of a three-bedroom house in Kamloops was between about $20,000 and $22,000. In the 1980s, the average Kamloops home sold for roughly between $75,000 and $90,000. In the 1990s, that cost rose to between $165,000 and $180,000. These are prices as I can best recall them, but I believe I am reasonably close. Here we are, only 25 years later, at $502,000 for the median home — and don’t forget the amount of interest being paid on the loan. Why has the cost of a residential home

that you need to raise a family been allowed to soar so high? The price of rental accommodations is also going through the roof. How many people can say that their incomes are keeping up to these housing costs? The writing is already on the wall if this ship doesn’t get turned around soon. It is well past time all levels of government recognize the costs of residential housing cannot continue to climb like this and do more than provide shelters or subsidized housing to solve the problem. Where are people supposed to live? In dugouts or caves dug into the sides of our hills? We need to change our ways and stop treating residential housing as a commodity. Every time a residential property changes hands, the price of that property usually goes up. It’s not only supply and demand or

money laundering that is behind the excessive increases in residential housing prices, as many would have us believe. There are a wide range of groups and processes that need to get examined to determine how or if they are contributing excessively to the unaffordable housing problem, not the least of which are government regulations and fees applied to land development and housing construction. If prices continue to rise at the present rate in Kamloops and other B.C. communities, we won’t just be looking at the problems Vancouver and Toronto are having — we will be looking at ourselves in the mirror. Perhaps a few citizens’ task forces to help the guys with the big ideas might help root out and solve some of the problems plaguing the residential-housing industry. Bob Wren Kamloops

Valleyview has nine portables around school From A1

The work on Valleyview secondary is expected to take up to four years to complete. It’s not clear yet how much SD73 will be contributing to the capital cost of the project, but any costs over budget will likely be the district’s bill to foot. Valleyview is over-capacity, operating with nine portables around the main building this school year. Another five portables are pending in SD73’s long-range facilities report. There are 942 students attending the school in east Kamloops this year, meaning the facility is operating at 140 per cent capacity as it was built to accommodate 675 students, per the Ministry of Education’s calculation. SD73 projects Valleyview to be at 163 per cent capacity within the next five years without expansion. Friday’s funding announcement is coming a year after the ministry asked SD73 to submit a detailed project plan for the expansion. Last month, SD73 received $1.8 million from the province to fund new boilers, dust collectors and buses, prompting a press release in which district secretary treasurer Kelvin Stretch said that SD73 was “confident that the Ministry of Education will be successful in presenting our capital request to the treasury board for approval.” With funding approved, the project will then move to the design phase. An expansion is expected to add on approximately 5,000 square metres to the current facility. Chris Ponti, chair of the parent advocacy group Advocates for SD73, said in a Facebook post the group plans to be at the announcement.

“It’s just unbelievable.” That’s how Jim Carroll describes the state of roads near his family home in Beresford, south of Kamloops. Each year, Carroll said, when the mercury rises and snow melts, the roads — Deleeuw Road, Scott Road and Rose Hill Road — heave and jerk. But 2019 is like never before, he said. “We’ve been there 25 years and it’s never been this bad,” Carroll told KTW. “It can be impassible. This morning we almost didn’t make it out and I don’t know if we’re going to make it back.” The Carrolls and their neighbours have asked government officials for help, but say their claims have largely fallen on deaf ears. “We called the Ministry of Transportation and they put some rock in so they could at least get an ambulance in, if needed,” Carroll said. The Carrolls were told by a ministry staffer this spring that something would be done, but nothing has happened. Sherry Carroll, Jim’s wife, said a ministry worker visited the site to see things for himself. “He drove out and said they were going to do something one day,” she said.

Sherry Carroll said a Minstry of Transportion worker visited to view the roads and said something would be done. She is still waiting. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

“We just beg and say, ‘Please.’ What do we do if it’s an emergency?” B.C. Ministry of Transportation did not make anyone available to speak to KTW for this story, but did provide

a statement acknowledging that the roads in question fall under its jurisdiction. “During the spring, as roads thaw, the overall strength of the roads decreases,” the statement reads. “The ministry places load restrictions on our highways and roads in an effort to prevent as much as possible any further road damage.” According to the statement, roads in the Kamloops area are presently restricted to between 40 per cent and 70 per cent axle weight. “Whether a result of abnormal strength loss this season or lack of compliance with our restrictions, we have seen more damage to local roads than in recent years, including those referenced in the Rose Hill area,” the statement reads. “Argo Road Maintenance has been taking steps to temporarily repair the damage to the roads. Planning for the necessary long-term repairs to the damaged roads is currently underway; however, until the roads dry out and drain naturally, work cannot begin.” Jim Carroll said he just wants to know he and his family can get to and from their home as required. “It just needs to be passable,” he said. “It doesn’t need to be a four-lane highway, but having it passible would be good.”

No room for civic centre in PAC plan SO SAYS RON FAWCETT, THE MAN BEHIND ARTS CENTRE PROPOSAL JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ron Fawcett says there is no room for conference space in the performing-arts centre proposal, which he presented to city council earlier this year. Fawcett said the amount of space required to host conferences would be “tremendous” and the design put to council has no extra room. “I don’t even remotely think it’s possible,” Fawcett told KTW. Fawcett wanted to make clear he has not been working with Tourism Kamloops on the concept of a civic centre, which CEO Beverley DeSantis has floated to include in a performing-arts centre convention space to attract more events and business travellers to the city. DeSantis said she raised the civic centre idea when the Fawcetts — Ron and wife Rae — appeared at a Western Canada Theatre meeting, before they proposed the

performing-arts centre to the city in January at a council meeting. She said there was no pushback during that exchange, noting the couple’s “passion” lies in the performing arts. Fawcett, meanwhile, said he does not recall meeting DeSantis, but he earlier heard a rumour of someone promoting a convention centre idea in the city. DeSantis also said she met with councillors and a couple of Rotary clubs about the idea. Asked if he considered working with Tourism Kamloops, Fawcett said unless more land is available, “it’s not possible.” The proposed performingarts centre would rise at the corner of Seymour Street and Fourth Avenue, on the former site of the Kamloops Daily News. The property is now cityowned and is a parking lot. The Fawcetts purchased an adjacent property on St. Paul Street they plan to donate to

the PAC project as office space for the various arts groups that will use the PAC. Fawcett said that while he is open to discussing anything, the city needs a performing-arts centre. The proposed facility would include space for the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, Western Canada Theatre, travelling groups, larger schools and other user groups. Sagebrush Theatre, out of which the groups usually perform, is closed until at least the fall, due to a cracked roof truss. The closure has left arts groups scrambling to find suitable space and are currently performing in churches and at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre in Aberdeen. The performing-arts centre proposal is in the council’s hands and no direction on the $70 million venture has so far been made clear. However, council did include in its recent four-year

strategic plan the priority of livability, including council direction to “explore options for community cultural facilities.” Fawcett, who owns the Kelson Group — a Kamloopsbased property-management company — is a local philanthropist and businessman who offered millions of dollars worth of land and design plans to resurrect a plan for a performing -arts centre in downtown Kamloops. The 103,000-square-foot centre would include three theatres, with 1,200, 450 and 75 to 100 seats, respectively. The proposal includes 36,000 square feet of underground parking for 70 spaces, with the option of adding additional layers of underground parking if the city chooses. In a 2015 referendum, voters rejected a proposed $91-million PAC and parkade at the same location. At that time, the Fawcetts pledged $5 million toward the overall cost if the proposal was approved by voters.

Tours, mock trial on Law Day EVENT WILL BE HELD NEXT TUESDAY AT KAMLOOPS LAW COURTS MICHAEL POTESTIO

What’s old is new again for the annual Law Day festivities at Kamloops Law Courts. The public is invited to learn how the legal system works in B.C. next Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Columbia Street courts. The main event, a mock trial, will revisit the past theme of Harry Potter to showcase court proceedings. The Boy Who Lived is in hot water, facing a second-degree murder charge in connection with the death of professor Quirinus Quirrell. Real life costumed lawyers and judges will play the parts. “I like that the judiciary gets so involved in these things,” said event organizer Aachal Goundar. The trial will run in courtroom

2D and the jury will be selected from kids in attendance. The trial will be held between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., but there are plenty of other activities. New this year is the community justice passport — a slight twist on last year’s scavenger hunt. Children will be given a sheet of paper when they enter the courthouse. They will be tasked with visiting various information tables set up by organizations such as the RCMP, ICBC, Crime Stoppers, Legal Aid BC and the BC Sheriffs Services. To get their passports stamped and win a prize, participants will need to stop and ask a few questions. Goundar said she is hoping this year’s passport will lead to more kids engaging with the representatives. Also returning is the Truth and Reconciliation Room, where people can learn how First

The BC Liberals siphoned money from ICBC. And now they want us to pay even more by privatizing ICBC. Andrew Wilkinson put B.C.’s interests aside time and time again. Now he wants to fool us with his privatization scheme. Andrew is an out of touch elitist who doesn’t care if you pay more. British Columbians deserve reliable, affordable public auto insurance.

Nations court operates and hear traditional storytelling from an Indigenous elder. Raymond Phillips from the Lilooet First Nation, who was named a judge last December, will be available to answer questions about First Nations Court. The barbecue grill will return to the back lawn of the courthouse, where residents can grab a free hot dog. “We found that it was a huge success last year,” Goundar said. The Ask a Judge forum will also be back in room 3B with justice Chris Cleavely, as will tours of the cells with a sheriff. As long as they don’t get called out, RCMP Police Dog Services will be back this year for a demonstration. Law Day in Kamloops started in 1991 and is organized by a local committee made up of sheriffs, police officers, court registry staff, judges and lawyers.

Organizers want washroom at farmers’ market JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

In advance of the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market opening later this month, organizers were at city hall on Tuesday, asking for public bathrooms and storage space. In doing so, they also opened up their wallet. “We would be happy to put forward between $7,000 and $10,000 a year for however many years it would take to build something [bathroom] or have something mobile on site or even nearby,” farmers’ market president Tristan Cavers told council. The farmers’ market launched more than 40 years ago with four vendors and has since grown as abundantly as ruby red tomatoes on a hot summer’s day in Kamloops, with about 100 vendors and 5,000 visitors in 2019. The market operates from late April to the end of October, Saturdays in the 200block of St. Paul Street and Wednesdays in the 400-block of Victoria Street. Council heard the market spends about $7,000 per year on porta-potties, money it would like to redirect toward a more permanent bathroom initiative. “It has its own challenges with deliveries and pick-ups of the porta-potties, but the secondary thing is having facilities for vendors, especially having good hand-washing facilities,” Cavers said.

“So, we have sort of piecemeal operation right now, where people have developed relationships with downtown businesses where they can go and use a bathroom. There is hand sanitizer, obviously, in the cubicles or in the portapotties, but that’s not necessarily sufficient.” Coun. Arjun Singh asked whether public washrooms already planned downtown would suffice. The city approved a public washroom facility to be built at the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association storefront in the 300-block of Victoria Street, about a five-minute walk from the market. However, Cavers said that location would not be accessible enough for elderly vendors, with too much time needed to use the washroom and return to the market. Council did not make any commitments to the delegation following its request. The farmer’s market will open on Saturday, April 20. Saturday markets will run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The first Wednesday market will open on May 1. Wednesday markets will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors this year will no longer provide plastic bags to customers as part of a larger trend in banning single-use plastics. The delegation also brought reusable bags as a gift to council, a gesture intended to encourage the city to also ban single-use plastic bags.

Council recently directed staff to come back with bylaw chang-

Mayor Ken Christian noted the city has been making “extensive

Residents can expect to see a police presence on two wheels this summer. Kamloops RCMP Supt. Syd Lecky said bike patrols will begin in the coming months downtown and on the Tranquille corridor in North Kamloops. He said officers who liaise with schools during the school year will be training on bikes this spring. “For the downtown and North Shore, I think bikes are a great way,” Lecky said. “Because before you know it, we’re on you and you don’t hear us coming.” Police will also be experimenting in North Kamloops with use of a quad known as a Gator.

degree murder in connection with Watson’s death, but that charge was later downgraded to criminal negligence causing bodily harm. Swann admitted to having been behind the wheel at the time his truck struck Watson, but argued he had “a disease of the mind” at the time. After input from doctors, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley ruled in February that Swann could not be held criminally responsible due to a mental disorder. During a brief hearing on Wednesday, Dley ordered Swann undergo

a risk assessment before receiving a disposition from the B.C. Review Board. “The focus of that [February] hearing was to determine whether or not Mr. Swann was criminally responsible for his actions,” Dley said. “That issue is very different than the issue I am dealing with today — and that is whether or not Mr. Swann poses a risk to the public.” Dley ordered Swann undergo an assessment prior to his disposition by the review board. Watson worked as a facilities painter for the Kamloops-Thompson school district.

A new education program implemented by Kamloops Fire Rescue last fall revealed that seven per cent of homes visited did not have a functioning smoke alarms. “The irony is that it’s such a simple procedure,” KFR Chief Mike Adams told KTW. “We’d really like to remind everybody at minimum is a smoke alarm at each level in your home. It’s a low-cost item,” he said. “They do have a life expectancy of 10 years and we encourage everyone to install one, test one annually. Smoke alarms save lives.” Like any other piece of equipment, Adams said smoke alarms need to be checked to make sure they’re functioning. Smoke detectors do have lowbattery alarms, though the nuisance of the beeping can sometimes lead to problems. “Often, people being what we do, because it’s a nuisance we just remove the battery and, therefore, the smoke alarms is inoperable,” Adams said. KFR will began another wave of public education this week, this time targeting private property close to interface zones. That program, which is a partnership with the city’s parks department, will target 400 homes in Heffley Creek, Westsyde and Pineview Valley. Residents will be given fire assessments of their property and the opportunity to have debris chipped by parks staff. Adams hopes the two pilot projects will become part of an annual program. “Really, at the end of the day, we’re public-safety professionals,” he said. “We’ve always been really response-focused and we want to be proactive. The best accident or emergent event is the one that doesn’t occur.”

He said the association is working with the city on implementation, but noted provincial changes in December that made it more difficult to attain steps toward greener building. Reid said significant costs and challenges have arisen as a result and costs trickle down to homebuyers. “It [Step Code] was brought out and presented to the province in one way and it’s been significantly changed,” Reid said. “So it’s something that has become a concern quite recently.” Meanwhile, Reid praised the city for approving funding in this year’s budget for an additional building inspector. “Obviously there’s plenty of work for them to do,” he said.

Large projects in the works include the Royal Inland Hospital patient-care tower and a 112unit mixed-use seniors housing and commercial project on Sixth Avenue and Victoria Street. Kwiatkowski noted a performingarts centre in council’s strategic plan, though he said that likely wouldn’t come to fruition this year. Proposed projects include a new Sheraton hotel at 1250 Rogers Way, with 99 rooms and a 75-seat restaurant, and a “food store” in the former Sears space in Aberdeen Mall. Issues for the industry going forward include increasing the city’s industrial land supply, agricultural land rule changes, working with First Nations and cutting of red tape, which Kwiatkowski said some councillors heard a desire for “loud and clear” during the election.

Massive cave’s publicity is worth millions The entrance to the massive cave that was spotted earlier this year in British Columbia’s Wells Gray Provincial Park. CATHERINE HICKSON PHOTO

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

More research of a recently discovered cave in Wells Gray Provincial Park has the potential to be a marketing boon in the surrounding community, according to geologist Catherine Hickson. Hickson led an expedition to explore the massive hole last September and detailed the journey to a crowd at this year’s Kamloops Exploration Group (KEG) conference Wednesday. “What’s exciting about it is it is a geological feature that’s rare and unusual, has the potential for new species [and] new understanding of the role between water and rock in the alpine environment,” Hickson told KTW. With one expedition to the vertical

cave under her belt, Hickson now hopes to lead another into its depths in 2020. The cave has a waterfall flowing into it that may be moving too fast to allow many creatures to call the area home, but Hickson said more research is needed.

“Is it just a huge tube that’s flushing water from one side to the other or are there passageway that would have things like draperies, stalactites and stalagmites,” Hickson told the KEG crowd. The massive hole in the ground was spot-

ted and photographed last April during a mountain caribou survey, and was initially dubbed Sarlacc’s Pit by due to its similarity to the Star Wars creature. Yellowhead Helicopters pilot Ken Lancour contacted Hickson, and she in

turn contacted colleague John Pollack, a cave expert and surveyor. Together they planned and permitted a reconnaissance trip in early September. The trip confirmed just how immense the cave is — placing it among the largest

in Canada, if not the largest. The entrance pit to the cave is about 100 metres long and 60 metres wide. While its depth is hard to measure because of the mist from a waterfall running into it at about a half a cubic metre per second, initial examinations show it is likely more than 137 metres deep, Hickson said. Hickson noted the enormity of the cave in her presentation comparing it to the Statue of Liberty, which is 93 metres from pedestal to torch. The cave is the largest known of its type, a variety of striped karst, which is marble interspersed with other types of

ancient ocean rock. It was likely formed by glaciers over the course of an estimated two-million years. One member of the expedition was lowered about 80 metres into the cave and confirmed there was a clear passage inside as far as he could see. “But that is as far as anyone has been into this cave, so we just don’t know what that next two kilometres is going to be like,” she said. Hickson said she’s been trying to tell Wells Gray Park the cave is “a marketing dream.” It’s discovery generated global media attention. The story even made the front page of the New York Times, she said. “You can’t buy this kind of publicity. This publicity is worth millions. They need to capitalize on it,” said Hickson.

ADVICE & INFORMATION

Q) My Mom’s health is failing and I think one of the main reasons is caused by her poor diet. How can I convince her that maintaining a healthy life style is important for optimum health? A) Men and women experience aging in different ways and women far outnumber men in the oldest age categories (80-plus). For both men and women, there are significant differences between life at age 65, 75 and 85-plus. Today, older Canadians are living longer and with fewer disabilities than the generations before them. The evidence is clear. Older adults can live longer, healthier lives by staying socially connected, increasing their levels of physical activity, eating in a healthy way, taking steps to minimize their risks for falls and refraining from smoking. It might be a good opportunity to talk to your Mom about making a move to a retirement community as they offer all of these things under one roof. Do your research and visit a minimum of 3 communities to see which one would suit her needs the best. When visiting each community, prepare a list of questions and you’re on your way!

oung Kamloops entrepreneurs took home some cash and, more importantly, proof of concept in their budding businesses at last week’s Junior Dragons’ Den event. Sixteen applicants from a pool of about 500 went into the den — the Brown House of Learning at Thompson Rivers University — to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. Four emerged victorious in the three categories, each receiving cheques for $500. Lara Turner and Landon Spencer from Robert L. Clemitson elementary in Barnhartvale finished first in the junior category for their automatic animal feeder, LTS Feeds. The senior category resulted in a tie between Rohkeya Diaou, Sarah Baughan and Alia Sandeman-Allen of Recycled Sounds and Kamloops School of the Arts students Abbey Seymour, Vivian Hill and Emily Waterman with their Clean Kitchen business. Thompson Rivers University student Kenton Sanderson won in the university category for his painting business Quick Fix Painting. “Initially, I was shocked and it still really hasn’t set in, but it’s getting easier to process,” Lara Turner said of winning the junior category. The automatic animal feeder she and Landon Spencer presented to the judges was inspired by the Grade 6 students’ shared distaste for the chore

of having to get up early in the morning to feed their hungry chickens, goats and rabbits. “I was like oh, we actually have a really good invention that we could move forward, maybe we could get this in the stores,” Landon said. The pair is now considering using their $500 grand prize to build a full-sized prototype. The Grade 7 students behind Clean Kitchen make cutting boards, coasters and wooden spoons from reclaimed and recycled wood in an effort to reduce waste. “We all like doing environmentally friendly things, so we wanted to help out a little bit more,” Emily Waterman said. Competing against high school kids in their category was a bit intimidating, she said, but noted that feeling was soon replaced by jubilation. “When they announced our name and we got the big cheque, it was really exciting and it was a great opportunity,” she said. Emily said they want to put their share of the prize money toward the food-safe mineral oil they use to finish the wood products and buying tables at craft fairs and farmers’ markets. Recycled Sounds is a natural speaker made from reclaimed wood that amplifies the sound of a smartphone. Its creators have had previous success, having won the Ledcor Regional Company of the Year Award and being named JA Canada Company of the Year. They were also finalists last year at the JA Americas Company of the Year Competition in Lima, Peru.

Community Futures Development Corporation of Central Interior First Nations general manager George Casimir, left, presents TRU student Keaton Sanderson with a $500 cheque for winning the university category of Junior Dragon’s Den.

4th Meridian Auctions & Vintage Shop Sarah Baughan said the group made a submission to Junior Dragons’ Den because they wanted to practise their business pitch and meet other business people in the community. “The event was well organized and it was great to meet other like-minded people,” she said. Next up for the entrepreneurs is to expand their business by finding new places to sell their product. Kenton Sanderson’s painting business that won over the judges is heading into its second year and the entrepreneur is in the midst of trying to implement direct online bookings. “I’ve seen similar industries do something fairly similar,” Kenton said, adding he believes the idea can also be successful in his industry. He hopes to have a booking website and iPhone application operating next year. If it’s successful locally, Kenton would like to expand it around B.C. “I was one of the last pitchers in the competition, so I had to wait one of the longest, so that was a bit of butterflies in the stomach,” he said. “But it was definitely a good evening.” Winning his category gave Kenton a sense of confidence in his business. “Just to win and get that validation that I’m on the right track is going to give me a boost,” he said. The student business competition hosted by Community Futures is modelled after the CBC show Dragons’ Den, offering entrepreneurs from Grade 5 to university the opportunity to create their own summer job or business, or expand an existing one. Students are required to submit a business concept paper for their business idea, which speaks to all the pertinent details of the business/ idea and its start-up costs, capped with a letter explaining why the applicant should be chosen to compete in the event.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

When? Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 1:15 p.m. The Board of Directors of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District gives notice that it will hold a Public Hearing in the TNRD Boardroom, 4th Floor - 465 Victoria Street, Kamloops, BC, to consider proposed Bylaw No. 2678. What is Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 2678, 2019? Zoning Amendment Bylaw 2678 comprises three primary areas of change to Zoning Bylaw No. 2400: 1.

A variety of changes related to cannabis production and the creation of specific parameters for small-scale commercial production. The proposed amendments would align TNRD zoning with recent federal legislation and clarify the Bylaw.

2.

Minor amendments to Zoning Bylaw 2400 that further restrict the construction of second or temporary dwellings on Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) land, all to align with recent changes to provincial legislation.

3.

To rezone the north 3.2 hectares of an 8 hectare vacant lot (legally described Lot A, Section 7, District Lot 377, Township 21, Range 24, W6M, KDYD, Plan 21950, except Plan 36130) at the intersection of the Trans-Canada and 97C Highways, in Boston Flats, as shown on the adjacent map. Rezoning from RL-1: Rural to P-3: Civic Works will enable a proposed TNRD Eco-Depot, a one-stop drop for recyclable material and waste. All materials collected are transported off site for final processing or disposal.

All persons who believe that their interest in property may be affected by the proposed Bylaw shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard at the Public Hearing. Additionally, they may make written submissions on the matter of Bylaw 2678 (via the options below) which must be received at our office prior to 4:30 p.m. on the 17th day of April, 2019. The entire content of all submissions will be made public and form a part of the public record for this matter. How do I get more information? A copy of the proposed Bylaw and all supporting information can be inspected from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday (except statutory holidays) at our office, from April 6th, 2019 until 1:15 p.m. the day of the Hearing; or please contact us via any of the options below.

WELCOME TO THe Holmes Is WHere

It’s no secret that Kamloops and Kelowna have always been in the midst of a friendly rivalry. Look at how quickly tickets sold out to last month’s tiebreaker game between the Blazers and the Rockets to decide who would make the playoffs. How sweet it was to see Kamloops oust Kelowna in front of a sold-out home crowd. I think Kamloopsians just seem a bit more down to earth and genuinely interested in who their neighbours are, as opposed to what they drive. Of course there are exceptions and I have family and friends who are great people and live in Kelowna. But the general consensus seems to be that Kamloops people are well known for being welcoming, salt of the earth folks who are genuinely interested in where you come from — even if it’s

Honour Ranch will move from Kamloops area to Ashcroft site Location in Rayleigh carried with it many issues JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Property north of Kamloops intended to help first responders and armed forces members cope with post-traumatic stress disorder turned out to be cause for emotional triggers. Noise from a nearby train crossing was among challenges that led Honour House Society to move its proposed ranch project this past fall to Ashcroft. “The sounds could trigger certain things,” Honour House Society president Allan de Genova said. “Because it ran so frequently at night and you can feel the ground shake a bit. … It’s very traumatic when that train’s coming through and you’re asleep and, all of a sudden, 11 at night you hear them rumbling very heavy.” The land was donated by Rick and Donna Wanless as a gift to Honour House to expand its work. Honour House opened in 2011 in New Westminster, providing free lodging to first responders and armed forces members who are seeking medical treatment and care in the Lower Mainland. In 2016, the Wanlesses gifted their ranch along the North Thompson River to Honour House to create Honour Ranch. De Genova said the project fell through in the fall, with additional

issues including a lack of railway signals and flood plain concerns. He labelled it a “miracle,” foreclosed property in Ashcroft gifted by a friend within 30 days of the Wanlesses site falling through. “We picked up the time that we lost, which was good,” de Genova said. In Ashcroft, the property is 120 acres and has 10 cottages and a main lodge. It is about 90 per cent completed and a work party will conduct cleanup and minor repairs. The ranch is expected to be ready by this summer. De Genova has asked the Thompson-Nicola Regional District for support on an application to the Agricultural Land Commission. “We look after hundreds and hundreds of first responders and Canadian Forces personnel from the TNRD that stay at Honour House while they’re getting treatment in the Greater Vancouver area,” he said. “This ranch will give them the treatment they need.” The Honour House Society is also looking to expand to Ottawa and Halifax. De Genova said he was initially challenged by a general to open Honour House and he has since been challenged to open houses in every Canadian province. “I’m starting with Ottawa, Halifax — coast to coast to coast — and now I’ll start working my way across the country,” he said.

Westsyde secondary students set to tackle challenging two-play theatre season

F

or its 2019 production, the Westsyde secondary theatre program is taking things to a level students have never tried before. Instead of putting just one show on stage, they will be performing two: Farce of Nature and Farce of Habit, two comedies from writers Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. “The first one was written back in 2014,” said Stephen Sawka, artistic director of Performing Arts Westsyde. “Then last year, they printed a sequel to it. So I thought, let’s give it a try.” Sawka admits that putting on two shows concurrently is a challenge, but that is precisely what he wanted for his students. “Since most of my senior actors have worked together since Grade 8, I thought, let’s give them the opportunity to work

“We probably don’t really get an opportunity like this outside of high school. So I’m really grateful for that.” — Mary Funk, Westsyde secondary student together on a nice comedy and challenge them to do not just one show, but two shows.” And the students appear to be up for the challenge. Caleb Castagna, who plays Carmine DeLuca in Farce of Nature, said the students have never done something so extreme and have so far had a great time staging the plays. “I know it’s been stressful for some people when it comes to having to do two shows,” said Molly Egli, who plays Lola Barbosa in Farce of Nature, “but at the same time, it’s cool because we’ve never done any-

thing like this before.” For Mary Funk, who plays Maxie Wilburn Suggs in both shows, it’s about the unique opportunity. “I also think we’re really grateful just to have the opportunity as high school students to do something like this,” she said, “to have the opportunity to do two shows and be so involved in drama, because we probably don’t really get an opportunity like this outside of high school. So I’m really grateful for that.” All students will be working on both shows in some capacity — some will be on stage playing the same characters twice, others

will play two different characters, and some will be on stage for one show and helping backstage on the other. Audiences can expect to see a professional level production from these students. “We actually run this place like a theatre company,” Sawka said. “We hire professional set designers, professional costume people to pick up the missing pieces, and all the kids work on it. So they’re responsible for coming in, we came in on Christmas break to put it all together. So the dedication’s there.” Westsyde secondary’s two

shows mark the start of the high school theatre season, as area schools coordinate with each other to ensure no performances overlap with others. Farce of Nature runs on April 17, 19, 24 and 26 while Farce of Habit runs April 18, 20, 25 and 27. Both shows are at the Rachel Ball Theatre at Westsyde secondary and curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 for general admittance and $10 for students and seniors, while combo tickets for both shows are only $20. Tickets are available in the office or by phone at 250-579-9271. Audiences are encouraged to come to both shows for the best experience. “It’s farce, it’s comedy, it’s surreal situations in a fun, fun way,” Sawka said. “I think it’s going to be an entertaining night or entertaining nights for them. Because you’ll see the first show and you just want to see what happens next with these characters.” D#30150 D#30150

Father and son broadcasters finally speak, leading to Empire of the Son WCT presenting play by former CBC broadcaster Tetsuro Shigematsu, begins April 25 SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

kira Shigematsu was a man with stories he long withheld from his son. He was in the room when Marilyn Monroe sang Happy Birthday to John F. Kennedy. He once had tea with Queen Elizabeth II. He grew up during the Second World War in Japan and stood in the ashes of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb dropped in 1945. But it was his career as a radio broadcaster for the BBC in London that, as his health was failing, allowed him to finally talk to his son. “In my whole life I never had a single conversation with him that was more than ‘pass the soy sauce.’ Our communication was always very terse or pragmatic, or even violent,” Tetsuro Shigematsu said. The two connected over the microphone — just as his father did with those he interviewed and just as Tetsuro had during his tenure as a CBC Radio broadcaster. In 2015, Tetsuro debuted Empire of the Son in Vancouver, just three weeks following the death of his father. “We didn’t really lock the script until 48 hours prior because my father’s death was unexpected,” he said. The performance was also a difficult one, and Tetsuro said he was just barely able to deliver his lines and, seeing his initial performance as “stiff.” But the sold-out audience at The Cultch was receptive and the show’s success allowed for a

remount in 2016 and now a tour that has taken it across Canada, including a run in Kamloops that begins April 25. And Tetsuro said he’s hitting his stride with the play, feeling present and relaxed in the moment and feels the power behind the words — his own and

his father’s — now even more than before. “I really feel the power of the work, the same way a rogue wave might hit you in the ocean. Suddenly the emotions are there and I’m surprised by them,” he said. Tetsuro said at some point he

asked himself, “This man I don’t really know is going to die soon, am I OK with that?” He admits he was, but considered that someday his own two children might start wondering about their identity just as he did. So for their sake, he began a series of interviews with

his ailing father. “It wasn’t long before I realized, wow — this man’s life so closely follows the contours of the 20th century,” he told KTW. The interviews found further purpose when Tetsuro started work on his doctorate at the University of British Columbia — which he recently defended successfully. “I had to ask his permission in a very formal manner. I had been putting it off for two years,” he said. His father had said no to being a research subject before, but with his fellowship coming to an end and student loans piling up, Tetsuro knew it was a make or break moment and built up the courage to ask again. “I wanted his permission, but he shook his head in incredulity. He said, ‘I cannot conceive why anyone would have the slightest interest in the banality that is my life.’” Pushing forward, Tetsuro insisted his father’s stories were of interest and he finally agreed. Knowing he might not have the courage to revisit the matter, Tetsuro asked his father why he agreed to the interviews that led to the play. “If you tell my story, my life will have had some meaning,” he said. While the play is filled with power and emotion, Tetsuro said it’s not without its share of belly laughs. Empire of the Son will open in Kamloops on April 25 at Pavilion Theatre, 1025 Lorne St. Tickets are available at the venue through the Kamloops Live box office, 250-374-5483 or online at kamloopslive.ca.

New exhibits, programs on offer at art gallery KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Two new exhibits recently began showing at the Kamloops Art Gallery. In the central gallery, find Presences by Samuel Roy-Bois, featuring sculpture, photography and installation. The exhibit explores the “relational network of

objects and their historical resonance” and asks whether we are making things or things are making us. Roy-Bois is from Quebec City but based in the Okanagan, where he teaches in the faculty of creative and critical studies at UBC Okanagan. His work will be on display

until June 29. Meanwhile in The Cube, find Four Oldest Daughters by Darlene Kalynka. The Kamloops-based artist has created large etchings of life-size scythes as stand-ins of each of the oldest daughters in three generations of her family. The scythe has a literal his-

tory for Kalynka, whose family had farms in their home country of Ukraine and in northern Saskatchewan, where they immigrated, but it also serves as a symbol for the sacrifices made in order to care for family and fulfill responsibilities. Four Oldest Daughters shows until June 29.

Other upcoming KAG events include baby-friendly art-making on April 25 (downtown library) and April 26 (North Shore library), ladies’ drawing night on May 1 and Drink and Draw on May 8 at Red Collar Brewing. The KAG will also host its annual general meeting on April 24.

he latest charming installment of the Flavia de Luce mysteries is The Golden Tresses of the Dead. Precocious to the point of being pugnacious, our petite prognosticator is almost perfectly perspicacious. With her genius IQ accompanied by a morbid fascination with poisons, murder and death in general, Flavia de Luce sets out to solve all of the afterlife’s mysteries scientifically, specifically via chemistry. Part Sherlock Holmes and part Pippi Longstocking, Flavia is a unique character. She also includes reflections of Marie Curie and even Wednesday Adams. All of those references still fail to fully encompass the entirety of her delightful character, so I’ll leave it to the lucky reader to add their own characteristics after the fact. The latest genius in a family full of them, Flavia is the scion of the de Luce name and heir to Buckshaw, a country estate in Bishop’s Lacey. The author has stated that the exact location of Bishop’s Lacey is “in the exact geographical centre of the reader’s mind,” although it could be Devonshire, Yorkshire or perhaps the Cotswolds.” It is set in the aftermath of the Second World War and this has impacted the surrounding community profoundly in a number of ways. Flavia’s father was a survivor of the death railway in Burma, as was his comrade Dogger. The two may have made it home, but parts of their psyche have been irre-

JASON WIGGINS

vocably altered by the experience. One of Flavia’s remarkable sisters is even romantically involved with a German pilot that had been shot down over English soil. Bishop’s Lacey abounds with interesting characters and resonates with the idea of a golden age of postwar England. It also has a much-higher-than-average number of murders that makes it perfectly suited for our prepubescent protagonist.

The newly formed Arthur W. Dogger and associates have just been officially employed for the first time, giving Flavia an opportunity. But quickly, their client dies mysteriously, seemingly poisoned. Flavia is of course not deterred, pursuing the initial case and this new mystery with equal vigor. When a shocking event shakes up her sister’s sacred nuptials, a third ball enters the juggler’s dance and Flavia has all that she and Dogger can manage. Doggedly, Flavia and Dogger delve into a clue that appears to have a connection to smuggling, only to find out that that red herring was but the first of many. Somehow our irrepressible sleuth will win the day. The Flavia de Luce mysteries have won numerous awards of note for the genre, including the Ellis, the Agatha and the Dagger. Bradley’s writing is both witty and playful and is rich with literary references. Indeed the title of the book is derived from a gloomy sonnet by Shakespeare, in which he references the practice extant at the time of harvesting the resplendent hair of the freshly-deceased for wigs for actors and others. This grisly timepiece serves as the novel’s epigraph. Sadly, it seems as though this may be the final novel in the series. This collection of cozies is not to be missed for fans of character-driven mysteries. Jason Wiggins is owner of The Book Place at 248 Third Ave.

Porn star who wrote tell-all on Trump en route to Kamloops KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Stormy Daniels is coming to Kamloops. The award-winning porn actress who wrote a tell-all book about her encounter with U.S. President Donald Trump — and the ensuing $130,000 payment he made to her — will be at The Duchess on June 2 for a meet-and-greet event, according to her website. The event is part of Daniels’ Make America Horny Again strip club tour in cities across North America.

Her book, Full Disclosure, was released in October 2018. Daniels shot to mainstream fame after she came forward claiming she had an affair with Trump in 20062007. Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen, who is headed to prison in May, made a $130,000 payment to Daniels just days before the 2016 election, with the money intended to keep her from talking about the tryst. Tickets are not yet on sale and no further details of the event have been released.

Monument for wildfire volunteers to be unveiled The monument to volunteers during the 2017 wildfires will be unveiled in downtown Kamloops on Friday morning. In the fall of 2017, following a devastating wildfire season, ThompsonNicola Regional District board approved spending up to $100,000 on commissioning a public piece of art that would be installed to recognize the volunteers who helped during the wildfires, as well as the volunteer community in the region as a whole. The wildfires in the B.C. Interior led to thousands of people being evacuated from their hometowns, with Kamloops a destination for a large portion of those people. After a call for artists, three designs were chosen by a panel. The designs were shown in regional libraries during June and July of 2018 to allow for a people’s choice vote. The chosen Lend a Hand monument, designed by Lee-Anne Chisholm and Aaron Harder, is dedicated to the countless volunteers who willingly gave their time and effort to volunteering throughout the TNRD. The artists say the piece is an expression of support created through the kindness of helping fellow neighbours. Lend a Hand will be unveiled on

THE COST OF BEING A SUFFERING SAVIOUR

T

his Sunday marks the Holy Week in the Christian calendar, starting with the conventional Palm Sunday (April 14) and culminating with Resurrection (Easter) Sunday on April 21. Of the upcoming seven days, Palm Sunday once again reminds the Christian church of the difficult

course and experience of Jesus. His processional route from Pilate’s judgment hall to the hill called Calvary was strewn with not only sadness, but a whole lot of suffering. What thoughts surged through the minds of the people that day will never be known fully. Those who loved him were stunned and horrified at the rapid pace

with which events had moved to the dramatic climax. They still looked for something to take place that would relieve this gentle man of his suffering, but each moment that passed decreased the likelihood. Those who had never made a decision concerning him, but had seen the loaves and the fish and other

wonderful things that he did, now watched him as he mounted his last pulpit. The soldiers who cared nothing for all this sat down beneath the shadow of this dying man to gamble for the last vestige of his belongings. But over it all hung a question that even his enemies asked silently to themselves: Why would this man die? Two of the condemned had committed crimes that were known, but this man had really done nothing. Insistently, we ask this question even today. Via Dolorosa, or the Way of the Cross, was reality because Jesus was such a good man. We have our little mottos that say virtue brings rich rewards and honesty is the best policy, but in fact we are forced to admit these things do not work out in everyday living to our material advantage. The person who is virtuous sometimes sees the procession of fame and fortune pass him by with scarcely a nod in his direction. Jesus, who was incarnate goodness, bowed his head before the onslaught of Jewish hatred and Roman cruelty — and all of his goodness failed to release him from the

bonds of suffering that evil forged about him. For his kindness, he received a crown of thorns; for his gentleness, he got a scourged back; for his love, he was given a cross too heavy to bear. Does it pay to be a good person? It depends entirely upon the kind of pay that we want. Jesus had no earthly reward, but his name is more profoundly influential today than that of any other person who ever lived. Think of all the storms that have swept across the face of our world during the last 20 centuries and one cannot fail to be moved by the fact this man still stands as a monument to the satisfaction of right living. No weakling could have cast such a spell upon the ages. Only a man who had learned a secret deeper than any that men had hith-

erto revealed could have pointed out such a way for people to follow. Ultimately, we find the problem devolves into a question of selfishness or unselfishness. The man who lives for the moment finds his appetites can be met, his desires can be somewhat realized and his hopes can be fulfilled. But there is a scant happiness to it all. For man was not meant to live like that and no amount of the material serves to meet the deep-rooted needs of his spirit. These things do not satisfy and he is foolish who thinks so. Alexander changed the map of the world and died sighing for more world to conquer. Jesus changed the motives of men. Caesar pushed back a frontier and died surrounded by false friends. Jesus purified and enlarged the faith of men. Charlemagne carved out a kingdom for himself and died an embittered and disillusioned ruler. Jesus laid the foundation for a kingdom of righteousness and justice and truth. Yes, goodness crucified him, but I take my stand on that side, knowing full well that such is the only way for permanent happiness. Yet again, Jesus was crucified because of the stubborn convictions of men. Judas, believing that this man had tremendous power, attempted to force him to manifest it. He sold the master not for greed — 30 pieces of silver was a paltry amount of money — and not even because he was disappointed in him. He sold Jesus because he firmly believed that once the shackles of Roman authority were placed about him, the master would call down fire from heaven and consume all his enemies. Judas had a stubborn conviction that he was right and that the way of Jesus was wrong.

Jesus is still a menace to those who would follow their stubborn and stupid convictions as to the way that things ought to be done in this world. He has offered us a way of life and we have not been willing to accept it because we have been convinced in our thinking that we know much more about modern occidental life than he could ever know. If Jesus really ruled our thinking and we gave over our convictions to his care that they might be molded in accordance with the principles that he laid down, what a different world this would be. If he was really the ruler, then war as a method of settling international differences by slaughtering large numbers of children would be no more. Our narrow, nationalistic outlook would be broadened so that economic interests would not always dictate our foreign policy. Our racial problems would sink into the background of an understanding that would sweep all else before the flow of its tide. Jesus trod slowly the Way of the Cross because people were convinced he was all wrong in his estimates of life and its values. May God forgive us that so often we have the same conviction.

Waddesdon Manor: A stately English home MARGARET DEEFHOLTS

SPECIAL TO KTW

travelwriterstales.com

Have you heard of Waddesdon Manor?” asks my hostess Diane, as she hands me a cup of tea across the breakfast table. I venture a guess. “One of those stately homes of England?” Diane nods. “It’s not too far from here.” “Shall we take a look?” Taking a secondary road while driving over to Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, I’m once again enchanted by the English countryside — rolling meadows and village lanes where houses crouch under thatched roofs and wild roses trail over stone walls. At first sight, the honeycoloured baronial mansion at the end of a broad driveway is like something out of a romantic Victorian novelette. Cupolas, spires and tall windows give it the appearance of a chateaux set amid spacious lawns and arbors of yew, cedar and chestnut trees. Waddesdon Manor — according to the booklet from the front desk — was built by Baron Ferdinand Rothschild, one of Europe’s leading financiers, in 1889. After his death, the estate passed to his spinster sister, Lady Alice de Rothschild. It was eventually bequeathed to the National Trust of Britain by her successor, James de Rothschild, on condition that it be managed by the Rothschild Foundation. The Foundation is now chaired by Lord Jacob Rothschild, a connoisseur of art and culture. Baron Ferdinand Rothschild invited the crème de la crème of English and European society to Waddesdon, and they, like me, would have entered first into the Red Room, and found themselves surrounded by rich textiles, red

WIKIMEDIA COMMONS PHOTOS TOP: The splendor of the Grey Drawing Room in Waddesdon Manor, at Buckinghamshire, England is truly elegant.

damask walls, portraits of noblemen, and the room’s dramatic painted ceiling. I am gawping, but they were probably fashionably blasé, and the room would have been filled with the sound of conversation — perhaps the latest society gossip. Baron Ferdinand spared no expense in collecting the finest Sevres porcelain, French 18th century furniture, paintings (including those of Gainsborough and Reynolds) and, as I walk through the Manor, I am overwhelmed by the sheer opulence of my surroundings. The dining room, for example,

with its tapestries and its elegant banquet table decorated with a magnificent centerpiece of fresh flowers, is breathtaking. The bedrooms, with their four-poster beds and dressing tables, remind me of scenes from Downton Abbey and I half expect Lady Mary Crawley to appear and ask me what I’m doing wandering around her suite. Which makes me wonder — are there any ghosts living in Waddesdon? I pose the question to one of the staff in the Blue Drawing Room. She shrugs: “They say Lady Alice can’t stay away from

Waddesdon,” she adds. “She was a regular martinet, that one ... and some say that she comes back to oversee the staff.” Ghosts aside, there are some very real curiosities at Waddesdon that halt me in my tracks. A chandelier called Porca Miseria (a polite translation is “Oh My Goodness”) on display in the Blue Dining Room is an artful accident. The chandelier made of broken cutlery and crockery was glued together from shards of porcelain dropped (on purpose) by its sculptor Maurer, and then mounted onto a metal frame.

To my eye, it appears to explode above an elegant tea table setting. Even more intriguing is an elephant automaton designed by French clock maker Martinet in 1774. The ornamental pachyderm plays a tune, waves his trunk and tail and moves his eyes (rather ghoulishly) from side to side. The Maharaja on his howdah on top and the musicians below move back and forth and then the entire piece comes magically to life with rotating flowers, images of diamante studded stars and Indian costumed figures and scenes that appear in windows. Intrigued by accounts of Waddesdon Manor, Queen Victoria reputedly invited herself over, and was so amazed by the electrical switches in all the rooms, that she spent several minutes flicking them back and forth. However, she drew the line at riding the newfangled elevator. Other guests included Winston Churchill who was apparently banned from smoking inside his room by the formidable Lady Alice. He would stay in the Portico bedroom so that he could step out on its porch to enjoy a stogie or two. To wrap up our visit, we linger in the gardens — Lady Alice’s pride and joy. This being a sunny summer day, the beds are alive with colour — purple asters, dahlias as large as plates, borders of lavender, fat peonies, phlox, and of course, roses. A gardener working at one corner tells me more than 50,000 flowers are hand-planted during spring and summer. Three-dimensional large bird sculptures, in addition to marble statuary, add a whimsical touch to the landscape. Travel Writers’ Tales is an independent newspaper syndicate.

EMMA PAPPALARDO Sound engineer RunClub+

JAIME AULT 5K Sweet

This was a special week for RunClub and Boogie the Bridge. On Tuesday after our run, we gathered at Red Collar Brewery downtown for the annual Boogie Beer. A special cask of beer is tapped just for RunClub and all proceeds go toward Boogie charities. Turnout was great and getting to sit down and have a beer (or cider or water) with everyone was exactly what I needed. My run was hard. During the past week, I have been pushing myself as Boogie draws ever closer and the warning signs of overtraining were starting to show. So I dialed back and focused more on finishing my run than pushing myself. After that, being able to sit and relax with what has very quickly become my family was perfect. I had focused so much on the run part that I had forgotten the club part and the reminder, being drawn into so many different conversations with so many amazing people, helped me to remember we are all in this together. I’m forever grateful to Jo Berry for introducing me to these fantastic people and forever grateful to my RunClub family for their acceptance and zero judgment. I can’t wait for April 28 to arrive, to run with them all and to see their smiling faces cheering as I cross that finish line.

GROUP GOAL WARM-UP

Patience is a virtue, a virtue in which I sometimes lack — and, boy, is learning to run teaching me patience. I went out this week with new shoes. I was hydrated and I stretched. I was full of hope this week would be the week I could keep up. It was better and I ran much longer than I had in previous weeks before my same problem in my calves emerged. This week, we “Boogied the Bridge” and ran a little more than five kilometres. The coaches all prepped us for the bridge and running uphill is no joke. As someone who is new to running, I started this journey with no clue how important pace was. When going up that bridge, it was so important to keep mental track of pace. As always, the support of the coaches was fantastic, without which I would never be able to push through this and keep going on my own. As Jo reminded me, working through my body’s issues and pains is the easy part. The hard part is being kind to myself mentally. It’s so easy to tear yourself down for not doing something as well as you thought you would and thinking that you’re failing because of it. The RunClub team and coaches are excellent at reminding you that you’re succeeding because you’re there. I made improvements, I ran farther and longer than I did the week before and I’ll do the same next time.

WEEK 6

MAX PATEL KTW digital sales associate 10K Bold It’s just two weeks from Boogie the Bridge and I can feel the excitement and energy when training with RunClub. It surprises me how I learn something new in each training session. RunClub coaches are not only great at what they do, but they also look after every member in their group, which includes handling the fastest members of the group and running alongside with the last member of the pack. It’s amazing to watch their multi-tasking skills as they need to keep the group together, decide which route to run, track down the stats of the run (which they use to provide feedback at the end) and answer all the questions posed by Boogie participants as they are running. During this past week, I trained on Sunday, when I learned the right technique to run, as explained expertly by Wayne Richardson. On Tuesday, our coach, Bob Dieno, taught us how to be efficient in long-distance running. He explained a technique that helps us to sprint within our long-distance running without exerting too much energy. Toward the end of my Tuesday training, Bob gave me some important tips that will help me become a better runner. I now have a goal to complete the 10K Boogie run in under 50 minutes. This goal is exciting. I am confident I will achieve it on race day, April 28, when I would will use all I’ve learned to achieve the 50-minute mark.

MOVEMENT IS CHANGE with Jo Berry, RunClub and Boogie the Bridge founder

Determination the greatest gift

A

s I get older, I see clearly that running has changed me. Without running, I would have missed so much in my life. The mere thought of it brings tears to my eyes. In the midst of regular life, running is the touchstone that breathes adventure and purpose into my soul. This touchstone is in all who have chosen the running life. Running may be considered an inconvenience, unattainable and odd to the in-experienced. In fact, once discovered, running is an enormous gift. Without running, I would have missed much, such as knowing my city geographically and knowing the people to the core. I love Kamloops, every single part of it, and community health is once again happening in our spring training. Questions? As the weeks Go online to runclub.ca of training are or send an email to completed, I am joberry@ blessed to see boogiethebridge.com. people’s faces completely light up as they discover their “I can do this” moments. People become comfortable in the uncomfortable. They no longer shrink back because something is challenging them. Their strength and resilience becomes stronger not only in their running, but in their life, too. They reach out to others more easily. They feel the safety and support of the RunClub community and they, too, see clearly how running is changing them. That is the magical thing about running — it’s always evolving us, physically emotionally, spiritually and mentally. A run has never returned me exactly the same. I go run. I grow. Each run, each event, each finish line and, yes, each Boogie is a new me and new for every single person who chooses to Boogie. They, too, have embraced their “I can do this” moment and will cross the finish line already excited about running toward the next one.

O

ne year ago, Martin Gardner may not have been an obvious choice to lead the Kamloops Venom into a new era, but his appointment to the club’s general manager and governor positions offer more proof the B.C. lacrosse scene is never short on unpredictable storylines. “I have a really good relationship with the Venom,” Gardner said. “Not that I didn’t before, but I was on the outside looking in. No one knew who I was. “If you can’t beat them, join them. I’m all about kids playing lacrosse at the highest possible level. That will never, ever change.” Gardner toiled to bring the intermediate A Okanagan Wild into existence and succeeded when they joined the B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse League for

the 2017 campaign. The Wild were forced into oneand-done submission, folding in part because the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League refused to go along with a threetier junior B system voted in prior to the 2018 season by the B.C. Lacrosse Association. BCLA directorate members who voted in favour of the move envisioned a system in which former intermediate A squads would become tier 1 teams, junior

B teams from 2017 would become tier 2 squads and intermediate B outfits would become tier 3 teams. TOJLL governors voted unanimously to declare tier 1 junior B league status, cold-shouldering the provincial governing body and waxing the Wild. Gardner has come to see why the Venom were opposed to the three-tier system. “It would have been devastating to the league [TOJLL],” Gardner said. “We’re down to three teams. If I had taken 25 to 30 players and gone tier 1 and they declared tier 2, I think the league would have folded and I didn’t want to be responsible for that.” Gardner succeeds a pair of longtime Snakes, former governor Carol Pittman and former GM Brandon Pittman. Liam Hagerty is head coach, replacing Doug Clark, who remains with the squad in an advisory role. Ryland DeRose, Chris Kerssens,

AND THEN THERE WERE THREE The Kelowna Raiders folded prior to the 2018 season and will miss a second consecutive TOJLL campaign. This year, the Venom, Tigers and South Okanagan Flames of Penticton will compete for league supremacy, as the Armstrong Shamrocks confirmed last month they do not have enough numbers to play in 2019. “We haven’t had an influx of players for a couple of years,” TOJLL commissioner and former Shamrocks governor Jeff Hanley told the Vernon Morning Star. “With the graduating midgets

(from North Okanagan Minor Lacrosse), the lion’s share has gone to Vernon. There was one eligible midget this year. For the last couple of years, we’ve had declining numbers and declining commitment. Players that just don’t want to show up for most of the stuff.” There does seem to be silver lining. South Okanagan, which was 1-8-2-1 in regular-season play last year and swept by Vernon in Round 1 of the playoffs, should be stronger in 2019, in part because of the addition of players from Kelowna. Some former Shamrocks have joined the Venom or Tigers, or moved up to play senior lacrosse, helping to replenish rosters in a league that has its own membership problems. Armstrong struggled in 2018, posting a record of 2-9-1 before Kamloops swept it from the postseason. See ARMSTRONG, A43

Thrash breaking into Kamloops MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Thrash Wrestling came to Kamloops 10 years ago, in June of 2009. The event at the Pavilion Theatre did not draw well and Thrash never came back. “When I went the last time, I wasn’t financially set to start running the town, so when I lost my shirt, due to my own poor promotion, I wasn’t prepared to come back,” Thrash promoter Nick Szalanski told KTW last weekend on Wrestlemania Sunday. The pro wrestling organization is enjoying a period of growth across the Okanagan — and it’s time to give the Tournament Capital a rematch. Thrash will hold an event, Just for Kicks, on Friday, May 10, at Moccasin Square Gardens (334 Chief Alex Thomas Way). Ticket vendors include Tumbleweed Lounge/Plaza Liquor Store (405 Victoria St.), Big Don’s Super Pawn (345 Tranquille Rd.), ticketseller. ca and MSG. Tickets cost $15 each, four for $50 or $20 at the door. Liquor will not be sold at the familyfriendly event. “The last few months, I‘ve been trying to track down a venue in Kamloops and they’re all either arenas, way too big, or venues that won’t get back to

me or tell me straight up no. I almost gave up,” Szalanski said. “Another promoter said Moccasin wants wrestling. Once we get into town, anything can really open up. For now, it’s a pretty good start. It seems to have generated interest, just by hanging up posters.” Szalanski, whose in-ring persona, Slave, is known to dabble in the hardcore side of sports-entertainment, is promising a slobberknocker of

a night at Just for Kicks. “You’re going to see a lot of hard hitting, some strong style, some comedy, some funny angles and there will be some women matches,” Szalanski said. “It’s about everything that pro wrestling is all about, tag teams, we touch on every angle.” Thrash is putting on shows on a monthly basis and has developed followings in Okanagan cities such as Vernon, Penticton, West Kelowna, Osoyoos, Enderby, Armstrong and Lumby. “We’re trying to branch outside of the Okanagan,” Szalanski said. “It beats me why it took me so long to come back to Kamloops. It’s such a huge market to open up.” Most of the wrestlers who enter the squared circle in Kamloops will be from the Okanagan, but Szalanski said a few Vancouver and Edmonton grapplers have shown interest in joining the card. The talent will be hanging around Tumbleweed Lounge after the show. Fans are encouraged to join. Whether Thrash returns to the River City may depend on how many people show up to MSG on May 10. “It’s going to be an explosion,” Szalanksi said. “There is no better show than wrestling, as far as live events. Nothing can touch it. We’ve just got to prove it. Once they see it, I’m pretty sure they’ll be sold.”

Watch the Broncos The Kamloops Broncos will begin B.C. Football Conference regular-season play against the Okanagan Sun in Kelowna on Aug. 3. Each of the conference’s six teams will play each other home and away, according to the B.C. Football Conference schedule released on Monday. Kamloops will host Langley on Aug. 10, Valley of Chilliwack on Aug. 24, Westshore of Langford on Sept. 7, Okanagan on Sept. 14 and Vancouver Island of Nanaimo on Sept. 12. Hillside Stadium is

the venue for Broncos’ home games. Four teams will advance to the postseason for semifinal matchups, with the BCFC playoff schedule slated to begin on Oct. 26. The conference champion will host the Canadian Junior Football League championship game — the Canadian Bowl — on Nov. 16. Ontario Football Conference and Prairie Football Conference champions will meet in a national semifinal, with the winner advancing to the national title tilt in B.C.

ARMSTRONG, KELOWNA MAY RETURN IN 2020 From A41

“Reflecting back in five years, it might be a good thing Armstrong isn’t in the league [this year],” Gardner said. “I think they would have had a tough time competing. It’s tough for those boys to come out and get blown out every game.” Gardner said Kelowna was close to having a team this year. “The Kelowna Raiders have been working diligently, maybe a little bit too late, but continuing to work and came up a little bit short, as far as putting the original Kelowna Raiders back in the league or there is another group working with minor on creating a new Kelowna team. “I think it’s inevitable Kelowna will have a team next year.” Armstong may be in the same boat, with about 10 projected midgetaged players from Shuswap Minor Lacrosse in Salmon Arm expected to graduate after this season and a few more coming out of North Okanagan, leaving optimism that numbers will increase in 2020, according to the Morning Star. THE SCHEDULE Each team will play 14 games, seven each against two opponents on the three-team loop.

Kamloops, which will play in an icebreaker exhibition tournament this weekend in Armstrong, will open the regular season with a pair of home games. The Flames and Tigers will be in town for games at Memorial Arena on Saturday, April 27, and Sunday, April 28, respectively, with faceoff set for 7:30 p.m. both nights. Last year, in part due to discord between the TOJLL and BCLA, the Tigers did not advance to compete for a B.C. title against the winner of the provincial tier 1 junior B league. Gardner said the TOJLL is working with the BCLA to determine a provincial championship format for 2019. THE SENIORS The Kamloops Rattlers will have more than one team to play this season, as the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League is regaining two teams to create a four-team circuit. More on that in KTW on Wednesday.

Evely leads KGTC charge Eleven Kamloops Gymnastics and Trampoline Centre athletes were in action at the B.C. Compulsory Championships for women’s artistic gymnasts, an event held last weekend in Langley. Among the top KGTC performers was Polly Evely, who finished second on floor, third on balance beam and sixth all-around.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM William Earl (Earl) Shepherd MD FRCPC Earl Shepherd died peacefully on March 29, 2019 at Sunrise of Vancouver. Born January 20, 1929 in Winnipeg, MB, he was predeceased by his beloved wife of 62 years Anne in October 2014. He is survived by his children John (Verna), Cathy, Heather (Don) and Nancy (Joseph) as well as his ten beloved grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Eleanor Best and three nieces. Born at the onset of the Great Depression, Earl was imbued with a drive to succeed by his parents and he excelled academically and athletically during his high school years, winning both the gold medal for his high school class and the 100-yard dash! Entering United College, now the University of Winnipeg, at age 15 his life was altered for the best when he met Anne Williams with whom he formed a loving partnership that lasted 70 years until her death. He graduated from the University of Manitoba medical school in 1952 and moved to Vancouver to pursue further studies, eventually doing his residency in Pathology. He continued to excel during this period, winning a prestigious Markle Scholarship in 1961 during which he took further training at Louisiana State University (becoming a lifelong Tigers fan) and worked in Central America for many months. As his career developed, he worked with many of the great men and women of Pathology and Medicine in BC; his long friendship with the late Dr. Don Rix and his professional relationship with the late Dr. Cam Coady were sources of pride to him. After working for the Federal Government at Shaughnessy Hospital, the family moved to Kamloops in 1968 where he developed particular interests in medical microbiology and medico-legal pathology. During this time, he did volunteer professional work in Western Samoa and Sierra Leona and formed fast friendships with others who did the same.

In 1981 Earl, Anne and Nancy moved to Chilliwack where he spent the last years of his working career with CJ Coady and Associates and again formed many lasting friendships both professionally and personally. He retired in 1989 but continued to be active in Rotary, being awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship and other community service organizations. He was proud of his magnificent garden and spent countless hours improving it. In 2002, he and Anne moved to Vancouver so they could spend more time on their love of music, particularly opera. They travelled extensively during retirement and he made trips to Ethiopia, the Silk Road and Tibet after Anne was unable to travel—he was immensely proud of climbing the steps to the Potala Palace in his 80s. Family was important to Earl and Anne and they were the kind of parents who always supported and contributed to the activities of their children with their time and money. Every one of his children has wonderful memories of him as a coach, umpire, travel companion and community leader—these memories are his greatest legacy to us. They were similarly generous in their support of many community and educational organizations both locally and internationally. In their latter years, Anne and Earl lived at Tapestry at Arbutus Walk where the caring staff provided both of them with support allowing independent living for a number of years. Following Anne’s death, Tess Aquilario supported Earl for over four years with warm and comforting care allowing him to stay at Tapestry into his 90th year. For the last 11 months of his life, Earl was fortunate to be under the care of the loving and compassionate staff at Sunrise of Vancouver—each and every one of them was kind to him and genuinely interested in his well-being. We are profoundly grateful to all of them. A Celebration of his Life will be held on Friday, May 24, 2019 at 1:30 pm at the UBC Golf Club in Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Vancouver Opera Association or the University of Winnipeg to the Anne and Earl Shepherd Tuition Credit Bursary Fund are most gratefully appreciated.

Allan Fred Morgenthaler was born in Kamloops on July 29, 1937. He passed away peacefully at Kamloops Hospice House on Friday, April 5, 2019. Allan is survived by his wife of 59 years Caroline, his son Lyle, daughter in-law Marja, grandson Alexander and also by his brothers Jake and Dennis and sister Rose (Len) Steinke, as well as many friends and in-laws. Allan had a unique sense of humour and always loved to make people smile and laugh. He enjoyed all of his coffee buddies, both at the Dunes Golf Club and at Timmies on the North Shore. He had a long career with the Ministry of Highways before he became ill with kidney disease. He fought the good fight, and for the past six years he was taking dialysis treatment at the North Shore Unit. He very much appreciated the care extended to him by the staff at the unit, the HandyDART staff and drivers, and all other caregivers. There will be no funeral by request. A celebration of his life will take place at his home later this summer. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kamloops Kidney Foundation, if so desired.

He was also passionate about sports cars, but eventually graduated to his 1963 and 1965 Volkswagen Vans “Broomhilda I & II” which became his home on wheels. A vagabond at heart, Ted resided in Sudbury, Toronto, Calgary, Alban, Kamloops, Maruata, Michoacán, Mexico and many, many places in between. Along the way, Ted made thousands of friends, many of which were like family to him (especially in BC and Mexico where he spent numerous years). Ted was one of the last true hippies travelling far and wide in his VW to attend festivals, music events, and get-togethers, often selling his famous falafels out of his van. Along the way his best companions and travelling buddies were always his manx “kitties”. Ted was a highly intelligent and open-minded individual who loved in-depth conversations with anyone and everyone. He was adept at analyzing the stock market, passionate about astronomy and happenings in the world, enjoyed reading, photography and backroads, as well as being an avid music lover/connoisseur having a life-long subscription to Rolling Stone magazine.

MaryLee Shannon On April 7, 2019, the heavens came calling and a new angel was granted her wings. MaryLee was the first born to Giuseppe and Liliana Posteraro. Family was huge to MaryLee, from the visits with her cousins, to the big Italian dinners with her family. MaryLee was the oldest of three. She always showed great dictatorship and a true leader. She loved everyone and was always trying to help crack a smile. Hard work was instilled to MaryLee at a young age and she took pride in all her jobs. McDonald’s during her teenage years, then Beaver Lumber and finally one of the originals at Zellers. She loved to work, meet new people and make many friends along the way. She had many accomplishments in her life, ones to be proud of. For the past seven years, MaryLee had lived at The Hamlets. Even faced with the challenges she made the best of her days. Helping others and working at the tuck stop, she loved to gab and make people smile. She made a numerous amount of friends there, that she called her family also. MaryLee always said her best accomplishment in life was being a mother. She did everything for her kids from the many sleepless nights to the many trips with her son to the Children’s Hospital. Even after her illness she would do whatever it took to see them happy, from watching Three’s Company, doing crafts, learning a new videogame or even being the make-up queen for her daughter to practice on. Her kids were her world, her two most precious gifts. MaryLee leaves behind her children Nickolas and Mackenzie (Shannon), her mother Liliana Posteraro, her sister Melisa (Shaun) Dyck, her brother Michael (Lindsay) Posteraro, her many nephews Thomas, Derian, Elias and Felix and her only niece Milana Posteraro. She also leaves behind many uncles, aunties and cousins both in Canada and Italy. She is predeceased by her father Giuseppe, her Nonno Michele and Giovanni and her Nanna Maria Nina and Milana. The family would like to thank the staff on 4N RIH for all their kind help, also to The Hamlets for all their help making MaryLee’s stay the last few years as happy as it could be. We were truly blessed to have the best nurse to help with her care, even on her stubborn days. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 11:00 am in the Holy Family Catholic Church, 2797 Sunset Drive, Kamloops. Private family interment will follow at Hillside Cemetery.

It is with saddened hearts we announce the passing of our brother Eric Bresser, who fought a long and hard battle with cancer. He was predeceased by his brother Ken and survived by his two sisters Diamond and Debbie and two daughters.

He taught us many things and stood by the saying, “If you’re going to do it, do it right or don’t do it at all.” We all live by this motto in his memory. We love you Eric. May you be at peace. There will be a family a gathering at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Q. Why cremate an expensive casket for cremation? A. Most people choose a basic container that meets legal requirements. Our basic is a plywood box for $175. We don’t use cardboard boxes, although they are more profitable. It’s the last thing we’re doing for your loved one…even if no one will see it. If someone insists on cardboard, we suggest another funeral home.

Bud’s life will be celebrated on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 1:30 pm at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 360 Nicola St, Kamloops, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations in Bud’s name are gratefully appreciated by the family to an organization of your choice.

Wayne taught English literature at the high school level in Edgewater, BC, Nelson, BC, Golden, BC, finally settling in Kamloops teaching at NorKam Secondary, Westsyde Secondary and St. Ann’s Academy. He had many interests, was a member of The Kamloops Naturalist Club, holding many positions within the club and monitoring a Bluebird Route for over 26 years. Always with a loyal dog at his side, Wayne enjoyed camping, fishing, hiking and cross-country skiing. He also golfed, curled, downhill skied and enjoyed travelling to many countries. Following heart surgery, Wayne volunteered with the Vascular Improvement Programme enjoying the nursing staff and patients.

Ian was born on November 28, 1966 and raised in Fort St. John, BC by his loving parents Hal and Joan (King). He graduated from the British Columbia Institute of Technology in 1988 and honed his craft for over 30 years. At a young age, Ian developed his passion for hockey and his love for family. To this day, Ian’s allegiance to the Philadelphia Flyers could only be matched by his passion to experience life on his bike in the chill morning air with the love of his life, Theresa by his side. To know Ian was to understand selfless acts of his time followed by endless hours on his views on life.

285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops

Wayne was a true character and his many friends and family will miss his stories and love of a good laugh. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Wayne Robert Jennings on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at The Hamlets in Kamloops, BC. Wayne, an only child, was born in Antler, Saskatchewan. He felt lucky to grow up with his mother Freda on the farm near Gainsborough, Saskatchewan belonging to his aunt Greta and uncle Coral Fisher and their two children Audrey and Maxine. Predeceased by his mother Freda Jennings (née Cowan), his father Robert John Jennings, his favourite aunt Greta Cowan Fisher, his cousin Maxine Mains, his uncle Ken Cowan and many other aunts and uncles. Wayne is survived by his good friend Jo Chipperfield and his cousins Audrey Fisher of Waterloo, Ontario, Terry Mains (Louise) of Peachland, BC, Bonnie Freitag (Mel) of Carlisle, Saskatchewan, Valerie Mains Roy (Marcel) of Gatineau, Quebec and their families. Wayne didn’t care for farming, so at the first opportunity he boarded a train for Vancouver, BC to attend the University of British Columbia. He was forever grateful to his uncle Ken Cowan (Burdina) for providing a home during his years of study at U.B.C.

The family would like to thank the staff at The Hamlets and his fellow residents there for their kindness and care. The Fisher and Mains families would also like to extend thanks to Donna Edwards and Jo Chipperfield for their gentle care and kindness over these many months. A special thank you to Dr. A. Cribb for her wonderful support. Donations may be made to the Kamloops SPCA or The Heart and Stroke Foundation. A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, April 15, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Dr., Kamloops, BC.

Barbara Ellen Basaraba August 2, 1946 - April 5, 2019

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Barbara. After a hard fought eight month struggle with leukemia, the cancer took her life. Born and raised on the South Island of New Zealand, Barbara immigrated to Canada in 1968 where she began a full and fulfilling nursing career. Barbara and Ed (RCMP member) married in 1969 and lived in Lethbridge, AB, Tuktoyaktuk, NWT, Whitehorse, YT, Mayo, YT, Golden, BC, then Kamloops, BC, where she eventually retired helping thousands of people along the way. They raised a family - daughter Kerry and son Ryan, and have three grandchildren - Greg, Josh and Chloe whom they love dearly. She leaves behind her four dear sisters Catherine of Vancouver, BC and Madeline, Mary and Theresa of Christchurch, NZ. Barbara was a fine artist who enjoyed painting and tending to her flower gardens. She loved visiting with her family and many friends favourite time being after 4:00 pm - wine o’clock/happy hour. She was an amazingly kind and loving person that always put

others’ needs before her own. Her outgoing and energetic personality made others gravitate towards her and her living nature and beautiful smile will be dearly missed by all. Barbara’s family sincerely thanks all the fine doctors, nurses and staff that went well beyond their calls of duty towards her care throughout her journey. She was overwhelmingly proud of you all and so happy to work with people like you throughout her career. She was a woman of strong faith in God and loved her parish.

Her two great passions were family and quilting. After dedicating many years to raising her children Marilynn branched out into quilting and found a great love for it. She was a devoted member of the Rivervalley Quilters for many years and was instrumental in organizing quilt workshops, patterns and labels for premature baby quilts. Marilynn organized several quilt shows over the years as well as teaching classes that influenced hundreds of quilters. She served as chair person for three quilt groups and often served as program chair person. Additionally she was one of the founding members of the Royal Inland Hospital Quilters, who did fundraising with quilts and quilted crafts. Being so active in the community, she was loved dearly by her many friends. Marilynn will be greatly missed.

Prayer For

Peace Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. When there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may not so much Seek to be consoled, as to console; To be loved, as to love; For it is in the giving that we receive; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

VAISAKHI

SATURDAY APRIL

ALL ARE WELCOME AT VAISAKHI 2019

J

arnail Singh Gill hopes to see people of every race, religion and creed at this year’s Vaisakhi celebration. “Anyone can attend — doesn’t have to be of Sikh religion or East Indian or anything like that,” said the president of the Kamloops Sikh Cultural Society. Observed every year, Vaisakhi — also spelled Baisakhi — marks the founding of the Khalsa way of living in the Sikh religion, as well as the spring harvest. Festivities at the temple on Cambridge Crescent on the North Shore will begin on Friday, April 12, with the continuous reading of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, starting at 10 a.m. “It will be read right through until Sunday,” Gill said. Those taking part are specially qualified to read the Punjabi scripture in two-hour shifts while in the presence of a priest. At that time, vegetarian food

Turn to page B8 to view a route map of Saturday’s Vaisakhi parade will be served to people who visit throughout the three-day ceremony, Gill said. The morning of Saturday, April 13, marks the most important part of Vaisakhi festivities, with the changing of the Sikh flag ceremony. “The flag will be brought down in the presence of five beloved ones — five beloved ones are the baptized Sikhs,” Gill said. As part of the ceremony, the flag pole will be washed with homemade yogurt and milk to clean it and a new flag will be attached before being raised again. “Milk is considered pure,” Gill said.

Once the flag is aloft, a community meal — know as langar — will be served. The ceremony will begin on Saturday at 10 a.m. and everyone is invited to attend. On Sunday, April 14, the reading of the holy scripture will be completed, followed by a closing ceremony filled with prayer and another meal. The closing ceremony is extremely important in Sikhism, Gill said, adding that while the Kamloops Sikh Cultural Society observes the religious aspects of the celebration, back home in India there is also a social component celebrating the harvest. The Kamloops Sikh Society was established in the early 1970s and Vaisakhi has been celebrated in the Tournament Capital ever since. Gill said this year’s festival will include a parade on Saturday that will begin at 700 Cambridge Cres. at 11 a.m.

“It’s more at the smaller scale [here] and now we are just trying to bring it to the next level,” he said. Gill said they hope to educate people about Sikhism, the reasons behind traditions such as wearing a turban and that the temple can be used by everyone. He also noted they don’t impose the religion on anyone. “We’re not here to say you need to be a Sikh. No, we’re saying believe in your own religion and be with us in this very important celebration for us.” On Vaisakhi day in 1699, Guru Gobind Singh summoned Sikhs from all over India to the city of Anandpur Sahib, where he called upon them to uphold their faith and preserve the religion. According to the Sikh tradition, Guru Gobind Singh named five volunteers willing to sacrifice themselves the Panj Pyare — the five beloved ones. After completing prayers, the

guru sprinkled a nectar known as amrit on each of the five. He then knelt before the quintet and asked them to baptize him as well and proclaimed that the Panj Pyare would be the embodiment of the guru himself. The Panj Pyare were the first members of the new Sikh community called the Khalsa. Singh gave the Khalsa a unique identity with five distinctive symbols of purity and courage, known today as the five Ks (turn to page B5 for more on those). He gave all Khalsa men the surname of Singh (lion) as a reminder to be courageous. Women took on the surname Kaur (princess) to emphasize dignity. With the distinctive Khalsa identity, Guru Gobind Singh gave all Sikhs the opportunity to live lives of courage, sacrifice and equality.  These Sikhs were to dedicate their lives to the service of others and the pursuit of justice.

VAISAKHI

SATURDAY APRIL

Timeline leading to the birth of Vaisakhi

April 15, 1469: The birth of Sikhism’s founder, Guru Nanak, at village Talwandi (Punjab, India; now in Pakistan).

1507 Guru Nanak proclaims, “There is no Hindu, there is no Muslim” — and Sikhism is founded.

Gobind Singh, Sikhism’s 10th and final personal guru, innaugurated Sikhism’s orthodox Khalsa order on Vaisakhi Day in 1699.

1522 Guru Nanak establishes the town of Kartarpur (now in Pakistan) on the banks of the river Ravi and the first Sikh community begins to take shape. 1539 Guru Angad (1504-1552) takes over and, given Guru Nanak’s eldest son Sri Chand’s claim on Kartarpur (Pakistan), decides to run affairs from his hometown of Khadur.

communities of Kartarpur (Jalandhar) in 1593, Hargobindpur and Tarn Taran.

1552 Guru Amardas (1479-1574) takes over and, with Kartarpur (Pakistan) still under Guru Nanak’s lineage, establishes the town and community of Goindval (also known as Gobindval or Govindval or Goindwal).

1601 Guru Arjan completes the compilation of the Adi Granth (or the Guru Granth). Construction on the Darbar Sahib (or Harmandir, now also known as the Golden Temple) in Amritsar is completed.

1574 Guru Ramdas (1534-1581) takes over and establishes the town and community of Ramdaspur or Amritsar. 1581 Guru Arjan (1563-1606) takes over and continues to run affairs from Amritsar. He also establishes the towns and

1604 The Adi Granth (or the Guru Granth) is installed at the Darbar Sahib (or Harmandir, now also known as the Golden Temple). 1606 Following Guru Arjan’s execution and martyrdom in Lahore

by Jahangir, Guru Hargobind (1595-1644) takes over and runs affairs from Amritsar (1606-1628) and Kartarpur, Jalandhar (1628-1634). Facing persecution from the Mughals, in 1634 he establishes the town and community of Kiratpur in the Shivalik foothills and remains there until his death. 1644 Guru Har Rai (1630-1661) takes over and runs affairs from Kiratpur.

1661 Guru Harkrishan (1656-1664) takes over at the age of five and remains in Kiratpur until his untimely death from smallpox at the location now marked by Gurdwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi, where he was staying following a summons from Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. 1666 Guru Tegh Bahadur (1621-1675) founds the city of Anandpur (near Kiratpur) in 1664. 1675 Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708) takes over, following Guru Tegh Bahadur’s execution and martyrdom in Delhi. In 1708, before leaving the world, Guru Gobinel Singh Ji said to all Sikhs: “Guru Granth Sahib Ji will be your guru after us.” April 13, 1699 Sikhism’s 10th and final personal guru, Gobind Singh, innaugurates Sikhism’s orthodox Khalsa order on Vaisakhi Day (marking the annual harvest season) at Anandpur.

The Gill Family wishes everyone a Happy Vaisakhi!

VAISAKHI What you should know about the Sikh religion SATURDAY APRIL

T

he Sikh religion is the fifth-largest in the world, with as many as 30-million adherents. There have been Sikhs in Canada since the late 1880s, when hundreds arrived from the Punjab, seeking a new life and employment in mines, mills and construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Today, according to the 2011 census, there are 468,673 Canadian Sikhs. More than 201,000 live in British Columbia. The basic tenet of Sikhism is expressed in the words “Ik Onkar” (One God). Guru Nanak Dev founded Sikhism in the Punjab in the 15th century, though at the time it was not his intention to form a standalone new religion. He preached the equality of all humans and spoke against tyranny, social injustice, and religious hypocrisy. Sikhism advocates equality for men and women of every race and religion. The Guru Granth Sahib is a compilation of the teachings of all of the early Gurus and is the main scriptural source. Worship is conducted in a place known as the gurdwara — doorway to God. The kirpan, one of five articles The Five Ks are the articles of faith of faith worn by Sikhs. worn by Sikhs. Most wear one or more, although those who have taken amrit — similar to baptism — wear them all: • Kesh, unshorn long hair, protected by a dastaar, better known as a turban; • Kangha is a small wooden comb used to comb the hair twice a day; • Kara is an iron bangle worn on the dominant hand; • Kachera is an undergarment; • Kirpan is a short dagger.

HAPPY VAISAKHI!

SATURDAY APRIL

A look at Sikhism’s rites and rituals

I

n addition to worship, there are other important rites and rituals within Sikhism. The Sikh Rehat Maryada is the Sikh Code of Conduct, giving instructions for all ceremonies:

Baptism-Amrit: Initiation into the Sikh religion is called the Amrit ceremony. Sikhs undertake the Amrit ceremony when they are ready to do so and understand the commitment they are making to the religion. The ceremony is held in the presence of the Guru Granth Sahib. It is conducted by five baptized Sikhs, called Panj Pyare, who wear the five Sikh symbols. The five Sikhs prepare the Amrit (holy water) in a round iron-vessel containing fresh water and sweets called patasas. They recite the five Banis (Japji Sahib, Jaap Sahib, Ten Swayyas, Chaupai Sahib and Anand Sahib) and stir the water with a double-edged sword, called a khanda. After preparation, the Amrit is drunk by the initiation candidates, then sprinkled on their eyes and hair. The ceremony concludes with the eating of the ceremonial karah parshad.

Happy Vaisakhi

to our friends and customers

Marriage-Anand Karaj: The Sikh marriage is called Anand Karaj, meaning ‘blissful union. Sikh weddings take place in the presence of the Guru Granth Sahib. Anand Karaj consists of the couple revolving around Guru Granth Sahib four times as the Lavan (marriage hymns) are being recited. The marriage ceremony may be performed by any Sikh, male or female, who has undergone the Amrit initiation. Sikhs practice monogamy. Widows or widowers may remarry. Child marriage is forbidden. Naming of children: After a child is born, the baby is often taken to a gurdwara for a naming ceremony. Prayers (ardas) are recited for the newborn child. After reciting ardas, the Guru Granth Sahib is opened at random. The hymn on the opened page is recited. The first letter of the first word of the hymn is selected as the first letter of the child’s name. The word “Kaur,” meaning “princess,” is added after a girl’s name; the name “Singh,” meaning “lion,” after a boy’s.

Cambridge temple marks 48 years in city

In 1971, Sikh Cultural Society members gathered at 700 Cambridge St. on the North Shore to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new Sikh Temple. The temple fund was created in 1967 and collected an initial $20,000. About $26,000 more was needed to complete the project, with the final cost of the temple upon completion being $46,000. It was fully paid off. At the front of the photo to the left are Khushdev Heed, Indira Heed and Ranjeet Heed, son and grandchildren of Sher Singh Heed, donor of the land for the temple. Looking on in the background are (left to right) Avtar Chahal, Dalbag Heer, Surjit Heed, Gurbachan Heed, Banta Dhaliwal, Inder Krod, Dr. Gur Singh, Kartar Ghag, Naranjan Sangha, Lashkar Ollek and Anup Jubbal. Members of the original committee that worked on creating the Cambridge Sikh Temple were Kartar Ghag (president), Avtar Chahal (secretary), Dalbag Heer (treasurer), Lashkar Ollek, Inder Kroad, Gurnake Pannu, Rajinder Sidhu, Sewa Dhaliwal, Hardial Pannu, Balbir Ollek and Nirbhai Dhaliwal.
