Hacker steals client data, tries to extort city firm TIM PETRUK STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

IN A PICKLE

DAVE EAGLES/KTW

Pickleball player Gem Chang-Ku joined a large group of players on Friday to play matches at the pickleball and tennis courts in Riverside Park. If you have never played, but wish to learn, this coming weekend is your opportunity. This Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the pickleball courts in Riverside Park will be home to a free learn to play clinic. The day will include on-the-hour lessons and practice, prizes and snacks, courtesy the Kamloops Pickleball Club.

A Kamloops property-management company has beefed up its online security following a data breach that saw a hacker steal personal information of clients in an attempt to extort the firm with a demand for bitcoin. Columbia Property Management owner John Brandon told KTW he was made aware of the situation in late February after receiving an “aggressive” email from a hacker who claimed to have stolen the company’s data. “They said they wanted money,” Brandon said. “He was trying to blackmail me to pay him. But the breach was fixed the day it happened.” According to Brandon, the hacker stole a document containing personal data from rental applications made for Columbia properties. The document included names, social insurance numbers, birthdates, driver’s licence numbers and income. Brandon said Columbia contacted every client whose data was stolen and is offering them free credit monitoring for 12 months. “That’s the first thing you do,” he said. “Well, the first thing you do is fix it and contact the police, which we did. Then you contact everyone. We contacted every client that could have been breached. And we’ve changed some of the procedures so they won’t be able to access anything again.” Kamloops Mounties confirmed to KTW they

are investigating the incident, but RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said there’s not much police can do to track down the hacker. “As the breach happened through their [Columbia’s] computer system, it is not possible to trace where or how it happened,” she said, citing privacy reasons in declining to offer any further information. The hacker is still attempting to extort money from Columbia. Last week, some of the stolen data was posted to the visitor’s posts section of KTW’s Facebook page via a fake Facebook profile, but it was removed by newspaper staff. The post to KTW’s Facebook page’s visitors post section listed a number of names and personal information and linked to a website that showed hundreds more names and personal data. That website has since disappeared. KTW notified RCMP of the post and website. Brandon said the incident has been an unwelcome surprise. “I was sick that they were able to breach our system,” he said. “We spend thousands of dollars on computer systems, but I guess those hackers are pretty smart.” According to Brandon, Columbia has since strengthened its security online. “It’s unfortunate that it happened,” he said. “So we try to figure out how it happened and make sure it never happens again. We spend a big percentage of revenue on computers, website, emails, because if your computer is broken, you’re pretty well hooped.”

Interior Health has launched a new service to help youth dealing with mental-health and substance-abuse issues in Kamloops and Kelowna. New intensive case management teams (ICMs) will support people under age 24 with significant mental-health and/ or substance-abuse issues and who are unable to engage in traditional services and have difficulty transitioning to the adult system of care. The Kamloops team has a

nurse, two social workers and a life skills coach, working to support the individual and arrange access to other health professionals as needed. “Young people and their families have told us they have faced difficulties accessing treatment,” Interior Health chair Doug Cochrane said. “To help address these challenges, we have now established these targeted, multidisciplinary teams in our two largest communities.”

The Kamloops service is based out of the Alumnae Tower at Royal Inland Hospital and can be accessed via discussion with a health-care provider or through the health authority’s mental-heath and substance-use intake program. The ICM teams in Kamloops and Kelowna are part of what IH described as “a relatively new provincial model,” noting the services already exist in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island.

Grants for wildfire prevention The provincial government has handed out more than $2.2 million in grants to help reduce wildfire threats in the Kamloops Fire Centre. The funding is part of more than $6 million in community resiliency investment grants given to 85 municipalities, regional districts and First Nations throughout the province following the follow us program’s first application intake.

The 26th annual McHappy Day will take place on Wednesday at all McDonald’s restaurants in Canada, with $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal and hot beverage sold going to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada and other local children’s charities. Helping the cause at the Aberdeen McDonald’s during last year’s McHappy Day were (from left) TRU recreation co-ordinator Pina Russo, TRU men’s soccer coach John Antulon, McDonald’s employee Dani Marrin, Jeremy Salamandyk of D&B Rodeo Stock and TRU men’s soccer player Zahk Barone. New this year, customers can also purchase an item from the exclusive McHappy Day x Peace Collective collection at participating restaurants, with all proceeds going to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada and children’s charities nationwide. Money raised helps families stay together while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital. In Kamloops, a Ronald McDonald House family room will open in Royal Inland Hospital, once the patient-care tower expansion is completed in 2022. The family room will allow families of children being treated in RIH to stay close to their kids. McHappy Day was established in 1977 by McDonald’s Canada founder George Cohon and has led to the creation of 15 Ronald McDonald Houses and 16 family rooms across the country, with more than 25,000 families from 1,800 communities supported each year. In 2018, $6.1 million was raised on McHappy Day.

‘Positive attitude, charismatic smile’ TRIBUTES GROW AS FRIENDS REMEMBER RAHUL ASNANI, THE TRU STUDENT WHO DROWNED LAST WEEK IN THE NORTH THOMPSON RIVER MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A 23-year-old university student who drowned last week in Kamloops is being remembered for his charismatic smile and positive attitude. An outpouring of condolences can be found on the Facebook page of Rahul Asnani following his untimely death last Friday. Emergency crews responded at about 6:30 a.m. to a section of riverbank near Chestnut Avenue and Schubert Drive in North Kamloops after Asnani was swept away in the North Thompson River. Asnani and two friends had been at the river on May 3, the day after his birthday. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Mathias Van Laer said drowning is believed to be the cause of death, although the BC Coroners Service is now handling the investigation. “This appears to be nothing less than a truly tragic accident,” he said. Clarification from police has shed new light on how the Thompson Rivers University student died. Initial reports indicated the group had been swimming, but RCMP later said the student and his friends were taking photographs near the river when he stepped too far and fell from a steep embankment. RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie explained the group had waded into the river — apparently admiring the scenery and taking pictures — when Asnani took one step too many and fell off a portion of the river floor that drops off into deeper water. Asnani’s two companions attempted to reach him and pull him back to shore, but were unsuccessful. His body was found by an RCMP dive team on Saturday at about 11 a.m., metres from where he was last seen. Asnani, who is from Adipur, India, had been studying business and economics at Thompson Rivers University. “Rahul Asnani: your death just proved that sun really sets in water,” Asnani’s roomate, Mubashir Rahman, wrote on Facebook. “Our heart cries for you. We are missing you. You are always alive for us. Your guidance and words will always be remembered.” “It’s very hard to believe of that sudden and tragic incident. You will be always alive in the best memories of our school and college life. May your soul rest in peace and condolences

to family and loved ones,” Gurnani Pratik wrote on Facebook. Both the university and Kamloops RCMP said they have been in contact with Asnani’s family in India. “I’m not able to get into the nature of those conversations as they are private, but TRU is doing what we can to support them during this difficult time,” TRU spokesperson Darshan Lindsey told KTW via email. She said it’s the university’s understanding

the students were out for a morning walk. The university arranged for counsellors and elder and chaplaincy support to be in place on Monday and hosted a candlelight vigil for Asnani outside the campus activity centre on Tuesday evening. Van Laer cautioned that with summer months approaching, anyone with little or no swimming experience should never approach water without proper safety gear and supervision. D#30150

Those opposed to the city’s contract with Arrow Transportation to spread treated sewage sludge in Turtle Valley held a protest outside city hall on April 27. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW FILE

City argues it does not create biosolids regulations OPPONENTS OF THE CITY’S CONTRACT TO SPREAD SEWAGE SLUDGE SAY A GREENER SOLUTION IS NEEDED JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Following the April 27 biosolids protest in front of Kamloops City Hall, the city has issued an online statement to clarify its position. “The vast majority of concerns we have heard are from those who oppose the beneficial reuse of biosolids and would like to see revised OMRR (organic matter recycling regulations) regulations,” the statement reads. “The City of Kamloops does not oversee the OMRR and cannot speak to the concerns with that regulation. The City of Kamloops remains committed to adhering to all applicable legislation that governs the beneficial reuse of biosolids.”

Turtle Valley resident Connie Seaward noted biosolids, also known as treated sewage sludge, are in fact coming from the city’s treatment facility, arguing all who flush are to blame. She added it was the city that signed a contract with Arrow Transportation to truck biosolids to Turtle Valley after residents in Kamloops opposed land application in city limits. “It’s their treatment facility and they should have a greener response,” Seaward said. Furthermore, the city states it has engaged with people via its Let’s Talk website, responded to public inquiries, visited Turtle Valley residents and provided the Turtle Valley Community Association with a tour of the wastewater-treatment centre. The city maintains projects similar to the one in Turtle

Valley occur throughout the province and across the country “with great success” and hopes to avoid misinformation. Meanwhile, protestors continue to block access of Arrow trucks near the Turtle Valley Bison Company, where the plan continues to be to apply biosolids to reclaim about 21 hectares of previously logged land. Arrow is fighting for an injunction in court in Vancouver. The city continues to work on a way in which to manage its biosolids long-term. A working group has been analyzing options and a staff report will come to council at the end of May. The city’s full statement can be read online at letstalk.kamHappy loops.ca. Family Day

City wants to flush aside outside waste JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The city wants to send a message to septic haulers throughout the province: Kamloops is not your toilet. As a result of trucks travelling across B.C. to unload in the Tournament Capital, the city wants to increase its tipping fees. City utility services manager Greg Wightman told the civic operations committee on Monday that the city’s low rate of $20.21 per cubic metre (1,000 litres) has resulted in trucks transporting liquid waste — including septic fuels, porta potties

and other sources — from the ThompsonOkanagan and Fraser Valley regions. “People are willing to drive here to save the money because of how cheap we are,” Wightman said. The city accepts commercial and RV septic waste at the Mission Flats Sani Dump and at the Kamloops Sewage Treatment Centre. Other locations cater solely to RVs. City staff examined septic tipping fees across the country and compared the local rate to communities in B.C., concluding Kamloops is “far less expensive” than its neighbours. Vancouver charges $61.30, Nanaimo charges $50.60, the Regional District of

‘WE NEED TO ACT NOW’ IS MESSAGE

W

here there’s smoke, there are now vacation plans. In fact, the vacation plans are occurring before the smoke arrives as more and more people plan to be out of town during periods of the summer as they anticipate the summer of 2019 will be as smoky as the summers of 2018 and 2017. Whether that comes to pass remains to be seen, though a forecast that calls for a high of 30 C by this Friday and news of what may become annual wildfire-threat grants being disbursed ($2.2 million for the City of Kamloops, TNRD, Sun Peaks and Tk’emlups te Secwepemc, among others) would suggest the fires and smoke will likely return. The near year-round effort to reduce the conditions that can fuel wildfires are a direct result of a changing climate, which is politicians are the local, provincial and federal levels are focusing much more attention and money on climate change measures, including behaviour and mitigation. Highlighting the massive challenge being tackled was the release this week of a major study that makes for depressing reading. It appears the human race has done a tremendous job in hastening the extinction of many species, with another million at risk due to our species’ unfettered growth. The 1,500-page report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services found that up to one million of the planet’s estimated eight-million species of animals, plants and insects are at risk of extinction, many within decades. The report cited industrial farming and fishing as being the activities behind the crisis, with “the current rate of species extinction tens to hundreds of times higher than the average over the last 10-million years.” The report noted climate change caused by use of fossil fuels is exacerbating the losses. Robert Watson, who chaired the study, summed it up succinctly, with a stark message: “If we want to leave a world for our children and grandchildren that has not been destroyed by human activity, we need to act now.”

Help nominate a leader

R

ecently we were recognized by our peers in the newspaper industry at the Ma Murray Community NewsMedia Awards in Richmond. We’re very proud of our individual team members who won awards: Allen Douglas for bronze in Sports Photography and Tara Holmes for gold in Community Service in putting together the KTW Timeraiser event, as well as a Silver Quill award for our editor, Christopher Foulds, for more than 25 years of service to the industry. We also earned a bronze for General Excellence in our circulation category. This award is the toughest one to win: the judges take all the editions of a paper from a single week of two different months in the year and judge every aspect of the paper, from our front page to news content to our opinion pages and sports, features, advertising content and design, classifieds, production quality and our online presence. While we get to pick the specific week, we don’t know which months will be selected until the end of the year. In other words, there is no “sweeps week” we can aim for where we know we’ll be judged. We have to do our absolute best every single week. While we appreciate the honours, they’re not the reason we seek to improve and excel every issue. We do so to better serve our community. But recognition is a good motivation — and that’s one of the reasons we’ve created a new awards program for Kamloops. Nominations are now open for the KTW Community Leader

Awards, presented by Excel Personnel Solutions. We’ve created six categories in which we want to recognize leadership in our community: COACH: This will honour someone who makes a positive contribution to sport and is exemplary in developing skills and confidence in their participants — a role model who inspires and encourages athletic achievement. COMMUNITY BUILDER: This is for someone who has taken the initiative to engage a variety of local residents in an innovative or new community project or event. The initiative may assist different groups to work together, address a gap in community participation or result in a more inclusive, engaged community. VOLUNTEER: This individual makes a positive contribution to the community by volunteering their time to a variety of causes. They are dedicated to making a difference in several initiatives. YOUTH VOLUNTEER: A youth (19 or under) who makes a positive contribution in the community through volunteering — someone who has committed to making a

difference to an organization or an individual. MENTOR: This award recognizes someone who makes a positive contribution by being a true leader — an influential counsellor, teacher or educator who provides support. She or he demonstrates a high level of ethics and professional standards, is an inspirational motivator, an excellent communicator, a good listener and a reliable resource to the community. COURAGE: This award recognizes a person who has risen above adversity or formidable challenges to become a success. As a result, they have had a positive effect on the people around them. To nominate someone, go online to www.kamloopsthisweek. com/leaderawards and make a submission of about 250 words about the person you wish to nominate. It should touch on the length of time the nominee has spent in the community, specific examples of the work and/or contribution they have made and their community associations/memberships. References of other individuals who can provide further support to the nominee’s case will also help your case. We’re accepting nominations until May 24, after which our selection committee will choose our six initial winners. We will profile those winners in a special section of KTW on Wednesday, June 12, and celebrate those winners at a special luncheon on Friday, June 14. We’re looking forward to seeing all the nominations come in for this and for celebrating six very special individuals late this spring.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

BRING TNRD INTO THE SUNLIGHT

JUST BECAUSE IT IS LEGAL DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT Editor: There are interesting opinions regarding the use of City of Kamoops-generated biosolids on private land in Turtle Valley. Arrow Transport says it is legal to dump the biosolids, but just because something is legal doesn’t mean we have to like it. I have to wonder how the City of Kamloops came up with Turtle Valley as a place to dump its biosolids when there are so many other potential sites to be used. Regarding the opinion that the biosolids are safe, a Kamloops Judge ruled recently that even though both sides had an expert opinion, both experts had differing opinions — and he sided with neither. I wonder if all the underground waterways have been mapped so we know where the runoff will go? Maybe Kamloops needs to find another location for its biosolids. Also, what do other jurisdictions do with their waste? Don Porter Kamloops

Editor: I am in total agreement with Kamloops Coun. Kathy Sinclair and the other Thompson-Nicola Regional District directors who voted to bring the recording of votes into the sunshine, where all of the taxpayers paying the freight can see the results. In my experiences with the TNRD, it appears the operations are carried out clandestinely, with answers to any inquiries being run around in circles and being passed from one department to another, hoping to have the nuisance go away. One issue that comes to mind was the overtime payment to TNRD staff as a result of the wildfires and floods in 2017 (‘TNRD had $582,000 overtime bill for last year’s floods and fires,’ KTW, July 27, 2018). The regional district’s chief admin-

istrative officer was paid an additional $117,000, which was part of more than a half-million dollars in overtime expenses accumulated by TNRD staff last year. Financial statements show Sukh Gill received the additional pay on top of his regular salary ($206,000), combining for nearly $325,000 in compensation in 2017. I find a $117,000 overtime payment to a salaried position obscene, considering the people on the ground were working 12 to 14 hours a day in extreme temperature under extreme conditions, while getting paid a wage in some cases below the poverty line. I queried Kamloops Coun. Dieter Dudy, who was and remains a TNRD director, about the $117,000 payment and his reply was to contact the TNRD about it.

No opinion, just pass me my pay, hiked to $14,400 from $13,028 that he probably voted in favour of in March of this year. We don’t know because the votes are not recorded. The TNRD has been operating for years in a dark zone with little or no oversight, spending taxpayers’ money on myriad projects, from zoning to landfills, that affect many citizens. It’s time to bring the happenings of the TNRD into the sunlight and push hard for vote recording and/or an electronic and video broadcast system. The taxpayers deserve it. What are directors opposed to this hiding?

FUELLING UP THE ETERNAL DEBATE ON GAS PRICES Editor: It always astounds me to hear the number of complaints about high gasoline prices and the carbon tax. What did people expect? The whole idea of a carbon tax is to raise the price of carbon-based energy to discourage people from using it and to encourage people to find other less carbon-intensive ways to live their lives. Unless someone comes up with a better way, we are stuck with it and should embrace it. The economists say the car-

bon tax will have to be many times greater than what we are presently experiencing to actually have the desired effect. Our problem is that no one wants to change (reduce) their standard of living even if they want to reduce their carbon footprint. We’re going to have to give up on that European vacation or that cross-Canada trip to celebrate retirement. We can’t continue to visit our relatives in Ontario twice a year or continue to have annual family reunions that

draw relatives from across the country. Sure, you can afford it, but the world that our grandchildren must live in can’t. Doug Dowell Kamloops Editor: Whether or not we drive, we are all struggling with the effects of high gas prices. However, we play a large role in the extortion by supporting it. Last week, there was a six cent per litre difference in

Crash victims were contracted by BC Wildfire Service KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Three men who died when a small plane crashed northeast of Smithers on Saturday were part of a crew contracted by the BC Wildfire Service to do aerial imaging. Kevin Skrepnek, B.C.’s chief fire information officer, said in a statement that the department’s thoughts and sympathies go to the families and friends of those involved. CBC News has identified two of the victims: 26-year-old Amir

City of Kamloops

Ilya Sedghi, who worked for Precision Vectors, the company undertaking the aerial imaging, and Lorne Borgal, one of Amir’s colleagues and former CEO of the Hudson Bay Mountain Resort in Smithers. RCMP Sgt. Darren Durnin said the crash site was located by helicopter search crews in Babine River Corridor Provincial Park, about 100 kilometres northeast of Smithers. “A conscious male passenger was seen outside the crash site, but due to the landscape, the

helicopter was unable to land,’’ Durnin said, noting rescuers were lowered from the chopper farther away and hiked to the crash site. Three other men — the pilot and two passengers — on the Cessna 182 did not survive the crash. The survivor was rescued by helicopter using a long line, then transported to medical care. As of Monday afternoon, he was reported to be in stable condition. The bodies of the other three men have been recovered. Both the BC Coroners Service

and the Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash, which occurred just after 8:30 a.m. A safety board spokeswoman said it sent a team of investigators into the site on the weekend. Forests Minister Doug Donaldson said the four contractors who were conducting infrared scans of some of the 2018 wildfires, on behalf of the BC Wildfire Service. “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of everyone involved in this incident,” Donaldson said. “On behalf of all

British Columbians, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the three people who did not survive.” Borgal’s wife, Nancy Treibor, spoke of her husband to the Interior News of Smithers. “His capacity for love of his daughters and grandchildren and me was his testimonial to being a good man,” Treiber said. The couple was the first ever to get married on the top of Blackcomb Peak in Whistler, in 1981.

“We have a record number of crashes happening — more than 900 a day in our province — and about 60 per cent of the crashes on our roads are at intersections,” said Mike Farnworth, B.C.’s minister of public safety and solicitor general. “We’ve taken time to systematically pinpoint the locations linked to crashes and dangerous speeds that are best suited to safely catching, ticketing and changing the behaviours of those who cause carnage on B.C. roads.” The provincial NDP government of the 1990s introduced

photo radar, which involved vans parked on the side of roads, inside of which were officers recording speeds of vehicles. The program was shelved by the B.C. Liberal government after it was elected in 2001. B.C.’s intersection safety cameras have had photo radar capability for some time, but the feature was never activated by Christy Clark’s B.C. Liberal government. Only two of the 35 photo radar intersections slated to be activated this summer are outside the Lower Mainland, each of them in Kelowna.

Once the make and model was known, Shelkie said an officer on patrol spotted the vehicle and police obtained a search warrant to seize it and investigate further. Shelkie said the investigation has now concluded. McDermott had been released from Kamloops RCMP custody 5.5 hours prior to his death after being arrested downtown while intoxicated and creating a disturbance. An inquiry by the Independent Investigations Office of BC found no fault with Mounties in his death.

The return of photo radar The B.C. government will begin ticketing lead-footed drivers with intersection photo radar cameras later this year, but none of them are slated to be in Kamloops. There are 140 intersection safety cameras in place keeping an eye on the province’s busiest intersections — including one at Tranquille Road and Eighth Street in North Kamloops — and issuing automated tickets for drivers who run red lights. Later this year, provincial officials plan to use 35 of the cameras to also catch speeders, whether the light is red, yellow or green.

Kamloops RCMP have concluded their investigation into a hit-and-run that killed a 48-year-old man in downtown Kamloops. The hit-and-run took place on Seymour Street near First Avenue just after 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 20, 2018. Kamloops RCMP initially identified two different vehicles from surveillance camera footage, but concluded neither was the vehicle that struck and killed Frank McDermott. RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said

police have used DNA evidence to link the hit-and-run to a 75-year-old man who has since died, before police could move their investigation forward. The man was the registered owner of the suspect vehicle — a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville — which police seized last November. “Fragmented pieces of the suspect vehicle at the scene and surveillance video from different locations helped identify the model of the suspect vehicle and eliminate makes of other vehicles in the area,” Shelkie said.

A Kamloops man alleged to have engaged in a gunfight with police before a lengthy standoff that shut down traffic on a major highway for nearly 20 hours will plead guilty, a judge has been told. Shane Caron was not present during a brief hearing in Kamloops provincial court on Monday as his lawyer said the 36-year-old will enter guilty pleas. Caron was arrested at about 4 a.m. on Oct. 28, 2017, at the end of a 17-hour standoff with police. Caron had holed up inside his parents home at G&M Trailer Park on the

Police secured the area and shut down traffic on the nearby highway until after Caron was taken into custody. It is not known to which charges Caron will plead guilty. In court on Monday, defence lawyer Jonathan Avis said only that Caron will enter guilty pleas. Following his arrest, Caron was facing numerous charges, including four counts of attempted murder. Caron remains in custody. Lawyers will meet on May 23 to set a date for his next hearing.

Police said the suspect emerged from the home armed with a rifle and fled in a pickup truck.

Judge-alone trial for accused in murder A Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre prisoner accused of murdering his cellmate nearly five years ago has opted to stand trial before a judge alone. Dylan Levi Judd was found dead in his cell at KRCC on Nov. 10, 2014. The 20-year-old’s death was initially believed by investigators to have been selfinflicted, but new information is believed to have emerged the following year, prompting police to take another look at the incident. Nathaniel Jessup, 32, was arrested in February 2018

Jessup’s trial had been scheduled to take place in front of a B.C. Supreme Court judge and jury, but he has since re-elected to be tried by a judge alone. The trial, slated to begin on May 27, is expected to feature

The applicant has also applied for a Cannabis Retail License from the Province. Public comments will be considered by the Board for both the rezoning and licensing applications.

The city is looking to expand the Kamloops Resource Recovery Centre to accept asbestos-containing waste. City of Kamloops environmental services manager Glen Farrow said the development community currently takes the materials to the Mission Flats landfill, but the area is expected to reach capacity with a year or 18 months. Farrow said the Kamloops Resource Recovery Centre — the former Owl Road dump the city purchased from Daniel Ambrosi for $10 million in 2016 — makes the most sense because it has enough space to receive asbestoscontaining waste for 10 to 15 years and could be developed at a cost of about $100,000. An alternative expansion of Mission Flats, on the northern slope of the landfill property, would provide a short-term solution of five to eight years, due to space restrictions. It would also cost more to establish vehicular and equipment access, estimated at between $150,000 to $200,000. “Operationally, it’s the right thing to do,” Farrow told KTW.

Kamloops city councillors, however, have taken note of the nearby residential neighbourhoods of Valleyview and Juniper. Coun. Dale Bass said residents are already frustrated about dust and the routing of trucks on Vicars Road and wondered why residents were not notified during recent neighbourhood meetings. Coun. Bill Sarai noted issues with the landfill’s previous owner. However, Farrow wants to quell potential concerns from residents. “Contained, controlled, bagged, buried immediately,” he told KTW, noting employees handling the materials — from abatement, hauling and landfilling — are regulated by WorkSafeBC. “All those practices we’re currently doing out at Mission Flats would be duplicated at KRRC with confident operators and solid-waste professionals handling that appropriately.” He does not expect any changes to take affect this year. The city is in the process of obtaining a new operational certificate for the landfill through the province and discussions about hazardous materials at the recovery centre will continue during that time. The province will have a 30-day comment period.

Kamloops will once again have a seat at the table on matters related to the Southern Interior. Kamloops Coun. Bill Sarai was acclaimed for a director at large position at the annual South Interior Local Government Association conference, which was held last week in Penticton. “Any way I can step up, I will,” Sarai said. Sarai, a first-term city councillor elected last fall, said the position will give him more experience and provide representation from the Tournament Capital. Kamloops is among larger municipalities of the association’s 37 members. The last Kamloops city councillor to sit on the board was former councillor Donovan Cavers. The late councillor Marg

Spina was previously heavily involved with SILGA. Sarai noted Kamloops is already represented via the Union of BC Municipalities, with council colleague Arjun Singh president of that organization, and SILGA is one more piece. “These are all steps we [city council] are taking to have our voice at each table,” Sarai said. Sarai recently retired from his career in the postal service, meaning he will have more time

for such municipal initiatives. The first meeting will be held next month, though it is unclear what will be on the first agenda. Among resolutions endorsed at SILGA last week, which will be forwarded to UBCM, included electronic voting for municipal elections and fire-mitigation incentives. The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has said it wants electronic voting made available in municipal elections. Kamloops Mayor Ken

Christian said during discussion at the TNRD level earlier this year every avenue needs to be explored in order to increase voter turnout, which was 30 per cent in Kamloops last fall. Meanwhile, Sarai said the hope is for the province to provide incentives to property owners, such as tax breaks, to mitigate the fire risk — a proactive rather than reactive approach to wildfires that have plagued the region in recent years. In 2017, the province spent more than $550 million on fire suppression. “We hope that the provincial government will come to the table,” Sarai said. Resolutions passed at SILGA will go to UBCM convention in September.

Drop-in shop will not return to landfill JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Don’t expect the drop-in shop at the dump to return any time soon. The idea to re-open the shuttered shop — essentially secondhand sales of items at the Mission Flats landfill — recirculates on a regular basis. However, city staff say the concept was good in theory, but not practice. “The intent was very heartfelt and loving and it made everybody feel good to know that we had a location where people could go and bring their lovely furniture, which somebody could then go to the drop-in shop and pay $5 for and be very happy with it,” civic operations director Jen Fretz said. “It ended up being, ‘I have this piece of junk that nobody wants, I refuse to pay to get rid of it, so I’m going to take it to the dropin shop.’ It honestly became a bit of a garbage heap, if you will.” Staff ultimately ended up having to haul drop-in shop

items to the nearby landfill. The store closed more than a decade ago. Since then, online marketplaces have filled a void and reduced the need for

such a shop. Fretz said the dropin shop existed prior to the advent of popular online auction and sales sites, many of which are hosted on Facebook. “Those types of sites

have really reduced, in my opinion, the need for a drop-in-shop type of place,” Fretz said, noting the online sites prevent people from having to drive out to the Mission Flats site to look through

used items. “It’s interesting,” Fretz said. “I think the need for that and the void created from closing it has really been filled by local social media sites, which are doing a great job.”

The fourth annual BCLC Empty Bowls auction raised nearly $30,000 for the Kamloops Food Bank. The event, held at the recently re-opened and renovated Delta Hotel Kamloops by Marriott (formerly Hotel 540), sees celebrity-signed artisan bowls auctioned off, with a silent auction of other items also raising money for the cause. The highest bid of the event was $3,100 for the autographed Ozzy Osbourne bowl. The Empty Bowls event also featured appetizers and local craft beer from The Noble Pig, wine from Monte Creek Ranch Winery and entertainment by local musician Cathi Marshall.

BUZZING ABOUT POLLINATOR GARDEN AT PARK

Bees and butterflies have a banquet of flowering plants at their disposal now that the BC Wildlife Park and Rotary District 5060 have opened a pollinator garden, which is the park’s newest addition. More than 50 volunteers from Rotary clubs throughout northwest Washington and B.C. were at the east Kamloops park last week, donating their time to complete the garden ahead of a dedication ceremony. Multiple groups donated time and money in creating the garden, which will help support the environment. Two horticulture students from Thompson Rivers University transformed the area outside the discovery centre building, removing the gravel and preparing the soil beds. In the photo, Gary Soles, Kamloops Rotarian and co-ordinator of the pollinator garden joins Sherry Chamberlain, district governor of 5060 and Kamloops Rotarian, at the site. MICHAEL POTESTIO/KTW

Green Living Expo at Sandman Centre on Saturday The City of Kamloops’ fourth annual Green Living Expo will be held at Sandman Centre this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free, family-friendly expo will include a full day of speakers, hands-on demonstration events and more than 40 exhibitor booths. Visitors will have a chance to get their hands dirty in garden demonstrations, learn about local food matters, have their broken items repaired at a Repair Café, ask questions about home energy rebates and interact with a wide range of community organizations that support active transportation, waste reduction, water conserva-

tion, locally sourced products, arts and culture and sustainability. Visitors will also have an opportunity to explore themes, including energy and the environment, health and wellness, sustainable and active transportation, cultural and social sustainability and food and urban agriculture. The day-long speaker series will include presentations on urban agriculture and permaculture, sustainable building practices and solar energy systems. Those with appetites can watch chefs from HealthFare and Eats Amoré battle to create the best sustainable dish

in a cook-off, with food items provided by the Kamloops Food Bank’s Food Share program. The kid zone will feature hands-on activities with the Big Little Science Centre, the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA, the Bright Red Book Bus, Makerspace and others. The plaza outside Sandman Centre will be host to a food truck festival, an electric vehicle display (with opportunities to test drive electric vehicles from River City Nissan and Smith Chev Olds) and an electric landscape tool demonstration by Stihl and Echo. For more details on the Green Living Expo, go online to kamloops.ca/expo.

City seeks your help in invasive plant battle The City of Kamloops is targeting invasive plants and harmful weeds at the source of the yards they call home. Municipal staff plan to deliver noxious weed alerts in the form of door hangers placed on the doors of residential properties where problem plants have been identified.

Residents who receive these advisories are asked to monitor the identified plant(s) and begin managing them as soon as possible. To help prevent the spread of invasive plants, the city recommends researching non-native species and avoid planting them, refraining from dumping garden waste or

hanging baskets into natural areas and to be wary of wildflower mixes as they can contain invasive plants. Noxious weeds and invasive plants can cause skin irritation, kill native trees, outcompete crops and native plants and be costly to control.

Identified noxious weeds that are having a negative impact in Kamloops include Japanese knotweed, yellow flag iris, hoary alyssum, Dalmatian toadflax, leafy spurge, sulphur cinquefoil, orange hawkweed, hoary cress, common tansy, oxeye daisy and knapweed.

City chamber hires new executive director KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce has a new executive director — and the person chosen to succeed longtime ED Deb McClelland was in the chamber’s office all along. Acacia Pangilinan has been chosen by the chamber board to become the executive director. Pangilinan has been serving as the organization’s interim executive director since McClelland retired at the end of 2018. In March, the chamber announced it had hired another candidate — John ACACIA PANGILINAN Perks from Ontario — but his hiring was reversed three days later in the wake of controversial posts he shared in his Facebook page. In 2015, Pangilinan succeeded Teresa Dares as president of the Kamloops Ambassador Society, which each year crowns a Miss Kamloops and ambassador princesses. Pangilinan was a past Miss Kamloops under her Schmietenknop surname and served as B.C.’s Ambassador in 2012. Also in 2015, while president of the Enactus Club at Thompson Rivers University, Pangilinan received the 2015 HSBC Woman Leader of Tomorrow Award from Canada’s largest student leadership development organization, Enactus Canada, and HSBC Bank Canada. The award recognized Pangilinan’s more than 5,000 hours of volunteerism, her creation of 100-plus community partnerships and her ability to secure a combined $120,000 in monetary and in-kind donations for her Enactus team. In 2011, Pangilinan ran for a seat on the KamloopsThompson board of education in that fall’s civic election. Pangilinan, who was previously the chamber’s programs and events manager, has worked at the organization since 2015. Prior to joining the chamber, Pangilinan worked at the office for KamloopsThompson-Cariboo member of Parliament Cathy McLeod. She has also served on the Kamloops Community YMCA-YWCA and Telus Thompson Okanagan community board of directors and is chair of the business advisory board for Enactus at TRU. Pangilinan and her dog Templeton live in Brock.

DAVE EAGLES/KTW Spring is the time of year when for-sale signs tend to pop up along residential streets, like this one in Dufferin. Housing inventory has been low in Kamloops, and Wendy Runge, president of the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association, says inventory has not increased enough to impact prices.

City remains a seller’s market Lack of real estate inventory poses challenge for buyers, drives prices higher MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

N

athan Boldt is frustrated. Boldt and his wife have been house hunting since February, having moved to Kamloops last year. They have been renting but are looking to buy now that their work situations have cemented. In the two months they’ve been searching for something between $500,000 and $600,000 — a popular range for local buyers — multiple-offer situations have created bidding wars and

caused prices to spike at the last minute. “It’s a little frustrating,” Boldt told KTW. “There wasn’t a whole lot coming on the market in February.” Kamloops is still a seller’s market thanks to a lack of inventory, according to statistics from the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association. The data show 2019 housing sales have dipped compared to last year while active listings are up slightly but still well below the city’s historical average of 2,704 for April. KADREA reported 1,116 active listings to date in Kamloops this year, which was nearly seven per cent higher than the

1,044 to date last year. New listings for April, however, were at 477 — down from 496 a year earlier. The historical lack of inventory poses a challenge for buyers as, depending on price point, they can face multiple offers in a quick-paced housing market, KADREA president Wendy Runge told KTW. KADREA stats show the top sales category during April 2019 were homes priced in the $400,000 to $500,000 range with 71 sales, followed by those in the $300,000 to $400,000 range with 59 sales.

Air Canada reduces number of non-stop summer flights from Kamloops to Toronto JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Air Canada will reduce the number of weekly non-stop flights between Kamloops and Toronto this year on its low-cost Rouge airline. Last year, the service launched with three flights per week between Kamloops and Toronto between June and October. This year, there will be be one flight per week when the service begins in July. Last year, non-stop flights to Toronto took off on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. This year, the weekly flight will leave each Thursday. Kamloops Airport managing director Ed Ratuski said travellers flying from Toronto to Kamloops did not stay, instead taking advantage of low-cost fares and continuing to Vancouver. “That was the primary driver,” Ratuski said, noting the Thursday route was operating “fairly full” during the week, which is why that route returned. Flights must be booked at more than 80 per cent

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE Air Canada Rouge began offering direct flights between Kamloops and Toronto last year. The carrier has announced a reduction in frequency of the seasonal flights for 2019 — once a week, on Thursdays, instead of three times each week.

occupancy to be considered successful. Ratuski said the airport will continue to promote the Toronto flight, in collaboration with Tourism Kamloops and Tourism Sun Peaks, to ensure the lone flight remains successful. Air Canada also recently reduced its frequency of

flights between Kamloops and Vancouver, swapping out aircraft for larger planes, but cutting the number of flights in the process. The Kamloops-to-Vancouver trip runs four times a day with 312 seats in the sky — a 25 per cent increase in capacity, according to the airline, but a 20 per cent reduction in the number of daily

flights as Air Canada had flown between Kamloops and Vancouver five times a day. Asked about Air Canada’s continued reduction of flights out of Kamloops Airport, Ratuski said the airline is maximizing the use of its fleet, noting airport numbers continue to rise. Last year, the airport reported record numbers of passengers. Through the first quarter of 2019, the airport saw a 10 per cent increase over 2018’s first quarter in terms of passenger numbers. “We would certainly like to see that additional frequency to Vancouver later in the evening, so we’re constantly working with Air Canada to bump up those numbers,” Ratuski said. Meanwhile, due to regulatory requirements and in response to additional passengers and larger aircraft, the airport will beef up it aircraft firefighting unit by the end of the year. Ratuski added that while some airports saw reductions in response to Boeing Max 8 aircraft being grounded following two crashes, Kamloops has not felt such impacts.

KCBIA earns provincial awards KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association has been recognized with three awards from Business Improvement Areas of BC during its annual conference in Surrey. The KCBIA was the recipient of three Best in the West awards — the Sustainability Award (for its sustainability and coffee program), the Marketing Award (for Downtown Kamloops video marketing) and the Safety and Security Award, for its CAP team expansion. The local BIA’s executive director, Carl DeSantis, was also nominated to the BIABC board of directors. “I am very excited by this opportunity and look forward to ongoing collaboration with provincial colleagues to advance matters of importance to downtown business communities.” DeSantis said in a press release. The BIABC serves the many business improvement associations across B.C.

Protecting What Matters Most John Lennon was quoted saying, "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." I think most of us can attest to feeling this way at some point(s) in our lives.

Life Insurance: Life insurance can serve several needs: paying final expenses and debts, helping replace lost income, maintaining a standard of living, providing tax-free inheritance and assisting in estate wishes, including blended families.

Life is unpredictable and things often go sideways. Some things are frustrating, like coming home to a burst water pipe and calling the restoration company. Others can be traumatic such as an unexpected injury, illness, or worse, losing a loved one all too soon.

According to a 2016 poll by TD Insurance and Environics Research Group, nearly 33% of Canadians do not have any life insurance. One reason could be that a study from Life Insurance and Market Research Association (LIMRA) found that nearly 80% of consumers over-estimate the cost of insurance.

While we cannot control life, we can try to protect what matters most. A common solution can be insurance. To keep things simple, insurance generally falls into two categories:

Life insurance generally falls into 2 categories: term and permanent.

1. 2.

Property insurance: covers objects such as your home, car, trailer, etc. Personal insurance: covers individuals from certain illness, injury or death.

We will not focus on property coverage other than we are advocates that if you value the property, it should be adequately insured (think replacement value). Below are six common types of personal insurance:

1.

2.

Vice President & Portfolio Manager eric.davis@td.com 250-314-5120

Keith Davis Investment Advisor keith.davis@td.com 250-314-5124

3.

Long Term Care: provides assistance should you become unable to care for yourself due to aging, an accident, illness or deteriorated mental ability. Usually measured by inability to perform two or more of activities of daily living including eating, bathing, dressing, etc.

4.

Creditor Insurance: Involves insuring your debts in case something should happen to you as debtor. Commonly there is life, disability, and critical illness. It is important to note that the beneficiary of these policies is the lender.

5.

Travel Insurance: We have many snowbirds and would encourage those who travel to carefully review their coverage. Take note of any exclusions. For example, we have heard instances where claims arising from parasailing, scuba diving or riding an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) could be denied.

Term: coverage for a set period of time. Group policies offered through work benefits often fall under this category as well. Typically, term is aligned to debt reduction, a retirement date or coverage while caring for dependents. Permanent: designed to meet lifelong needs and often referred to as Whole Life or Universal Life. Costs are higher than term insurance and can be paid over a predetermined number of years or life. These products also have the ability to shelter cash value in a tax-deferred manner.

Eric Davis

This can help pay down debts, provide cash flow if off work, or enhance quality of life. Common coverages may include heart attack, stroke and cancer. Some cover upwards of 30 different ailments. Coverage will vary by product and provider, and is typically paid out in a lump sum upon diagnosis.

Disability: An RBC Insurance report revealed that 43% of Canadian households do not have disability coverage. Also, a 42-year old male was 3.5 times more likely to become disabled than die. If you cannot work, who is going to pay your bills, let alone look after your needs? Be careful relying only on group coverage through work because you may be surprised at what your benefits include and how long they pay for.

These are a brief overview of some avenues that could help protect yourself and loved ones. There are many options, and while it can feel overwhelming, we believe working with a trusted advisor can help ensure that you are protecting what matters most. Until next time…Invest Well. Live Well.

Critical Illness: Covers an individual in the event of being diagnosed with certain life-altering illnesses or diseases.

Local real estate market ‘weather-driven’ From A19

Median city price in April dipped to $475,000

Brocklehurst was the most active area last month recording 31 sales, with Aberdeen and Sahali each posting 20. In Kamloops, there were 272 residential properties sold in April compared to 311 12 months earlier — a decline of 12.5 per cent. Between January and April 2019 there were 826 residential sales in Kamloops compared to 873 during the same period in 2018, representing a decrease of 5.4 per cent. Addressing the slump in sales,

Runge said Kamloops tends to be a “weather-driven market” where the mercury rising can influence people getting out and looking or even listing their homes. The median residential price in April took a step back to $475,000 after hitting a record high of $502,000 in March. April’s median price, however, was still 4.4 per cent higher than the $454,900 of April 2018. Runge said the median price tends to fluctuate month to month.

CANADIAN PRESS

VICTORIA — Premier John Horgan has asked the British Columbia Utilities Commission to investigate why gasoline in Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island is so much more expensive than the rest of the country. A statement from the premier’s office Tuesday said Horgan spoke with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday and brought up his concerns, making it clear that gas hovering around $1.70 per litre is of national importance.

• MOST ONE-OWNER VEHICLES • MOST FACTORY WARRANTIES • NO HIDDEN FEES • NON-COMMISIONED SALES STAFF

PRICES FALLING! Construction Sale on Now! ONE OWNER LIKE NEW!

“If there is a greater increase in higher priced homes sold in that month, it can really affect the median price,” she told KTW via email. “Overall, we are still seeing a steady moderate increase in pricing. The inventory has not yet increased enough to have an effect on it.” The average price of a home in the Tournament Capital was up to $414,858 — up 11.7 per cent last month over April of 2018, fuelled mainly by increasingly expensive

townhomes and apartments. Single-family homes had an average price of $459,828 in Kamloops during April, up 6.2 per cent over 2018. Overall the Kamloops housing market continues to show stability with sales running slightly below the last couple of years but improved pricing due to continued high demand and historically low supply, accoridng to KADREA. Runge described the Kamloops housing market as remaining strong, supported by affordability compared to other areas in the province.

first pitch slated for 7 p.m. Moskalyk (7-1) led the league in wins (seven) and strikeouts (80) and was second in earned-run average (1.68). “Hodder has always pushed me,”said Moskalyk, a 6-foot-2 hurler from Thunder Bay. “As soon as I came here, I knew he was the No. 1 guy. Where I came from, I was the No. 1 guy. “You always want to be the No. 1 guy. It’s a competition, but it’s a friendly one.” Statistics indicate Kamloops Minor Baseball Association product Riley Jepson of Fraser Valley is the league’s best hitter. The Salmon Arm native played 24 games and led the CCBC in batting average (.405), tied for the lead in home runs (six) and was sixth in RBI (18). See MOSKALYK, A31

Wade Lavallee’s try gave the Kamloops Raiders a 14-point lead and the inside track to a repeat B.C. Rugby Union title in Burnaby on Saturday. Langley Rugby Club preyed on indiscipline and Kamloops turnovers in the second half of the men’s Division 2 final, recording 19 unanswered points to win 24-19 and end the Raiders’ quest for back-to-back provincial titles. “I was massively disappointed for the boys,” Raiders’ head coach Derek Pue said. “I’m incredibly proud to be involved with these guys. For amateur athletes to put in what these guys put in, it’s a huge ask year in and year out.” Tries from Matt Scott and Justin Blanchard, both converted by prop Greg Thomson, gave Kamloops a 14-0 lead. Langley answered with an unconverted try, but Lavallee dotted down to put the Raiders ahead 19-5. “We stuck to our game plan in the first half,” said Pue, whose Raiders posted a 10-4 record

in the regular season, finishing third behind Bayside (11-3) and first-place Langley (13-2). “The idea was to not let Langley build up too much momentum and limit the turnovers so they couldn’t really breathe. “Going into halftime, we had actually missed on a couple of scoring opportunities, so the score could have been a little bit bigger.” The lead was cut to seven points when Langley struck with about 30 minutes remaining in the second half. “Langley woke up and they really brought the tempo up,” Pue said. “They didn’t turn it over and we lost our shape defensively, unfortunately. They were able to pump in two quick ones in the middle of the second half and we couldn’t recover.” Langley scored twice — one try set up by a Raiders’ infraction and one penalty try — to take the lead with about 10 minutes remaining in the match. Kamloops marched toward the goal line looking for late heroics in the dying seconds, but a lineout gone awry finished in dispossession.

Langley hoofed the ball out of bounds, cueing the sound of the final whistle. “No one likes being second, but, in the big picture, you can’t look at it as a negative,” Pue said. “The guys came together for the evening and enjoyed each other’s company on the way home. “We jumped out, touched some snow and had a little huddle at the tollbooth. Spirits were up eventually.” Kamloops, thrashed 38-0 at the hands of Vancouver-based Meraloma Rugby Club in the 2017 provincial final, rebounded in 2018 with a 28-27 victory over Vancouver Rowing Club to snare the B.C. championship. A repeat title was not to be, but Pue, who plans to be back for his fifth season at the helm in 2019-2020, said the Raiders are already turning focus to reaching a fourth straight B.C. final. “Some of the kids coming out of local high schools are seeing we’re a fun club to be involved with, but we also push the standard high,” Pue said. “We’re coming together to create that environment across the whole club.”

No high school rugby ban in B.C. WOLFGANG DEPNER

BLACK PRESS

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The executive director of the organization governing high school sports across British Columbia does not foresee a ban on rugby in the immediate future. “We see strong

participation, because it’s a big part of our sporting culture in this province,” said Jordan Abney, executive director of B.C. School Sports (BCSS). He made those comments after what what was likely an unprecedented flurry of moves in Nova Scotia, where Friday

the provincial government reinstated rugby as a high school sport mere hours after the Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation had cancelled high school rugby games at public schools because of safety concerns. This initial ban prompted outrage from players, parents and the

medical community in leading to the eventual reversal. Abney, who expressed surprise at the initial decision, said nobody knows at this stage what medical research will say 20 years from now. But a ban is currently not under discussion, he said.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Ruth Fetterly

July 5, 1924 – April 28, 2019

On Sunday April 28, 2019 Ruth Fetterly passed away at the age of 94 years after a long and brave battle with congestive heart failure. Ruth will be lovingly remembered by her five children Patty (Greg), Joseph, Anne (Tim), Mary-Joan and Carol (Dean) and her precious grandchildren Amanda, Katelynn, Laura, Emily, Michaela and Joel. Ruth was predeceased by her three younger sisters Helen, Phyllis and Dorothy. Ruth was born in Toronto in 1924 and moved west where she met her loving husband Norman Fetterly at Lake Louise. Norm and Ruth married and settled in Kamloops where they raised five children and were active community members. Ruth’s main focus was raising her children in Kamloops and spending long summers at Shuswap Lake where she opened her heart and home to family, friends and a wide variety of wild and domestic animals that the children regularly brought home. Ruth had many passions in life and an uncanny ability to touch people in a deep and spiritual way. She had a lifelong devotion to spiritual growth and physical wellness. In the 70s she pioneered and taught yoga for many years in Kamloops. She was a cofounder of the Centre for Stress Management in Kamloops and mentored many women

March 8, 1936 – April 30, 2019

Our light, our rock and our anchor. We have all been cast adrift by her completely unexpected loss. There are no words to express how devastated and shattered we all are. Mom was born in Thorpe-Le-Soken, in the county of Essex, England. Her and dad met in 1955 and married on September 19, 1957. Over the next decades they travelled and moved extensively between England, Europe, the Middle East and Canada, with mom usually closing down house and toting four children in her care while dad went on ahead. They finally settled in Canada in 1967, starting in Montreal and moving west to reside in Kamloops before settling in to White Rock for 30 years. Mom and dad moved back to Kamloops the final time in 2005.

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Kim Stephenson at the age of 59. She peacefully slipped away from us in her sleep on April 5, 2019. Kim was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, spent her childhood in Vancouver, BC and her teenage years and remainder of her life in Kamloops.

Kim was predeceased by her father Steve Stephenson in 1984 and leaves behind her mother Joan, her two loving sisters Kathleen Schmidt and Karen Dean, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

It is so difficult to describe her smile and laugh or to encapsulate her amazing life in only a few paragraphs, but she leaves an amazing familial legacy in her loving and majestic wake. Lovingly survived by husband John (dad’s cookie), son John (Palma) and daughters Marina (Francis), Heather (Gerald) and Denise. She loved so much and was so proud of her six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her three brothers in England and their families.

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Marilyn “Joy” Nobel

February 20, 1941 – April 21, 2019

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Marilyn “Joy” Nobel (Barney) of Gallagher Lake, BC on April 21, 2019 at the age of 78, surrounded by family at Kelowna General Hospital. Joy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on February 20, 1941 to Jim and Mini Barney. She spent her early childhood days playing with friends on Albany Street in Winnipeg. Later, she moved across the country on the train with her parents and sister Carol, to build their life in Maple Ridge (Haney), BC. Joy had many cherished memories along the banks of the Alouette River. Joy graduated from Maple Ridge Secondary School then took Practical Nursing at Vancouver General Hospital. In 1974, Joy made the decision to move to Kamloops with her three kids in tow and there she began her 25 year career with Overwaitea Foods. She loved her time at Overwaitea in Valleyview and later in Sahali. Her co-workers and those she severed everyday were so important to Joy. Sometime after Joy retired from Overwaitea Foods, she made the move to her paradise, Gallagher Lake where she had spent every summer holiday since 1970. Her last few years she volunteered as Treasurer to the Penticton & District Manufactured Home Owners Association which she was so proud of.

When Joy became your friend, she was a friend for life. Joy was predeceased by her parents and sister. She leaves behind her children Karri Loadman, Rick Nobel (Tammie) and Lanette Nobel, her grandchildren Stephanie Dilling (Shane), Jacquelyn Nobel-Loadman (Brian Godin) and Krissy Johnson, her greatgrandchildren Charlie and Olive Dilling and Haley Johnson.

He is survived by his daughter Lenna (Ernie) Bojda, son Hector (Barb) Denton, daughter Frances Woodward and daughter Donna (Brenda) Woodward, grandsons Adam (Dianne) Clark, Shawn (Meaghan) McCarron, Bradley (Jennifer) Denton, granddaughters Christine (Jhonny) Denton and Jordan (Gavin) Lawrence, greatgrandchildren Shaylen, Tristan, Quentin, Andrew, Grace, Brenna, Alex, Mitchell and Molly. He is also survived by his ex-wife and dear friend Doris Alcantara and her daughter Sofia. John was born into two pioneering families in Port Alberni on August 13, 1922. The family moved to Little Fort in 1925 where John and his siblings worked on their father’s farm. Besides farming, John also worked as a hunting and fishing guide until he married in 1949. He drove logging truck and worked at the lumber mill in Blue River until he was hired by Alberta Gas Trunk Line in 1961 and the family moved to Edson, Alberta. Although not educated, he was smart and a bit of a renaissance man in that he knew how to build and repair almost anything.After a move to Calgary in 1965, he quickly rose within the company and became the Chief of Construction, overseeing the building of many pipelines and compressor stations throughout southern Alberta until he retired in 1981.

After retiring, John and Leone enjoyed working on their small acreage in Little Fort where they raised a few beef cattle and a huge garden. After Leone died in 1993, he moved to a small acreage in Armstrong where he raised a few beef cattle, boarded horses and built two ponds for raising rainbow trout. In 2005, he moved to Kamloops where he grew a fabulous garden and enjoyed spending time with his family. In May 2018, he suffered a fall while planting his garden and sustained a serious brain injury. After a slow decline in health he was transferred to Heron Grove Complex Care Unit in Vernon in February 2019 where he died peacefully on April 23, 2019 surrounded by his loved ones. John loved his family and family get-togethers and often stated how lucky and blessed he was to have a large, close and loving family. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 1:00 pm in the First Memorial Funeral Chapel, 177 Tranquille Road, North Kamloops with the Reverend Sandra Sugden officiating. Reception to follow. Interment into the family plot, at Little Fort Cemetery will take place at 4:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Heron Grove Complex Care Unit in Vernon. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

The Angel on Your Shoulder By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder. Bereavement Publishing Inc. 5125 N. Union Blvd, Suite 4 Colorado Springs, CO 80918

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Race Points

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Adam, Bob, Carl, Dan, Eric, and Fred ran a race. There were no ties. The first-place runner got six points, the second-placer five, and so on, down to the sixth-placer getting one point. Adam beat Carl, Dan beat Fred, Carl beat Eric, Fred beat Carl, and Fred beat Bob. Together Adam, Bob, and Fred got eleven of the points.
