B.C. to be summer’s ‘king of the heat’ DAVID FRIEND

CANADIAN PRESS

British Columbia is expected to be the hottest place in Canada this summer, with a heightened wildfire risk, according to the latest long range forecast from The Weather Network. Chief meteorologist Chris Scott is

forecasting another summer of hot, dry weather for most of Western Canada, raising the wildfire threat, which has already prompted evacuations in northwestern Alberta. “We expect the wildfire risk to be heightened this summer,’’ Scott said, noting that there will be an “above normal season’’ for wildfires for most of

B.C., western Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Yukon. He said B.C. — which experienced record-setting wildfire seasons in 2017 and again in 2018 — is expected to be “the king of the heat this summer.” See FORECAST, A4

Was Dylan Levi Judd murdered or did he kill himself? That’s the question a B.C. Supreme Court judge will be forced to answer in the coming weeks, at the conclusion of a murder trial that began on Monday at the Kamloops Law Courts. Judd, 20, was found dead in his cell at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre on the morning of Nov. 10, 2014. His death was initially believed by investigators to have been the result of suicide. That changed in the years that followed and Nathaniel Jessup, now 33, was arrested last year and charged with second-degree murder in connection with Judd’s death. Jessup’s trial, in front of B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan, is expected to conclude at the end of next week. Prosecutors believe Jessup strangled Judd, his KRCC cellmate, in the hours after nightly lockup on Nov. 9, 2014. Jessup alerted a corrections officer the following morning that Judd had not awoken. “A guard found Mr. Judd on the bottom bunk bed, with his right foot sticking out at the bottom of a blanket,” Crown prosecutor Monica Fras said. “The blanket covered the majority of Mr. Judd’s body right up past his eyebrows. The guard removed the blanket and discovered Mr. Judd was dead and that Mr. Judd had a KRCC-issued sweater tied around his neck.” Fras pointed out Jessup had “exclusive opportunity” to kill Judd.

Scott broke down the summer forecast region by region: B.C. He said B.C. can expect a hotter and drier than normal summer, which will bring a consistent threat of wildfires. “We’ve already seen some warm days and we expect June overall will continue that trend,’’ he said. He also the warned the heat and lack of rain could be particularly hard on urban residents because of the possibility of water restrictions. PRAIRIES Scott said his network is predicting slightly below average precipitation for the Prairies, but not to the point where farmers should be concerned about drought conditions. “Alberta’s always the swing province in terms of weather,’’ he

said. “We expect that to be the case again this summer with it really flipping between warm and cool depending on the week.’’ The network is predicting near normal temperatures in general for the Edmonton to Calgary corridor, with precipitation also close to normal. “We’ll get our normal share of active summer weather — thunderstorms, hail storms,’’ Scott said. “It’s part of living in that part of the country.’’ The forecast for Saskatchewan and Manitoba calls for slightly lower than normal summer temperatures, with close to average precipitation. ONTARIO/QUEBEC Scott expects seasonally cooler conditions in northern Ontario and Quebec and “near normal’’ temperatures in the southern parts of the prov-

inces, which together will increase the chance of rain. He said southern Ontario and Quebec will get their hot days, but there won’t be as many as last summer. “Last summer was a deadly one,’’ Scott said, referencing the heat-related deaths in Quebec. “We don’t expect this summer to be as hot.’’ He said there will be some heavy periods of rain in the southern part of the region which will exceed average precipitation levels for the area. “But we don’t want to convey that this is a washout of a summer — it does not look that way,’’ he added. “It just means that when it rains it pours.’’ Scott suggests the wet weather that characterized much of the spring will persist into the summer months, leading to a “heightened threat for flash flooding.’’ He pointed to extreme weather conditions, such as the Toronto flood

in July 2013 and the Burlington, Ont., flooding a year later, as examples of what could recur this year. ATLANTIC CANADA Scott said the Atlantic provinces can expect “generally near normal temperatures,’’ with some above average temps also forecast for the southern Maritimes due to humid air moving into the region from the Great Lakes. He said not to expect a lot of heat in June, but to prepare for more humidity across the region in July and August. NORTHERN CANADA As for northern Canada, Scott said “expect an above normal fire season as you head west of Yellowknife, especially, and then into the Yukon.’’ The network is predicting normal to slightly warmer than average temperatures extending to the Alaska border, while near normal temperatures and precipitation are forecast for Nunavut.

Milestone Reached on TRU campus LEASING FOR PHASE 1 OF 25-YEAR, $1-BILLION DEVELOPMENT COMPLETED KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The Reach, a 25-year plan to create 3,500 multi-family housing units, retail and office space and other services on the TRU campus. has leased the final two sites to complete phase 1 of the estimated $1-billion project. Kelson Group, the Kamloops-based property-management company, was the successful bidder on building sites at 865 and 875 University Dr., on which will rise a building with rental units and a building with condos for sale. Each building will rise to five-storeys and have approximately 40 units. Kelson will pay $2.8 million for the 99-year lease. “Developing market suites is again a change for our team, but the market in Kamloops is growing and we have great confidence people will buy into the unique and beautiful environment of The Reach, much like they have with Creston House by the Cape Group,” said Jason Fawcett, Kelson Group’s vice-president of operations. Over the past number of years, our company has been working to take the next step moving into the area of property development,” said Fawcett. “For over four decades, our strategy was

lease and hold, focused solely on buying existing apartment buildings, then maintaining and managing them. Today, our company continues to move into the construction and development of new buildings. This is a different and exciting challenge for our team.” The deal brings to three the number of buildings at The Reach backed by Kelson Group. Its Legacy Square project, a 77-suite, fivestorey multi-family rental apartment building under construction at 895 University Dr., is expected to open this fall on the north side of TRU’s Old Main Building. The Kelson Group has leased the Legacy Square land for 99 years for $1.8 million. The Reach’s phase 1 development also includes Creston House, a four-storey, 57,000-square-foot project featuring 50 condos available for purchase by anyone in the community. It broke ground in October 2017 and is being built by Cape Construction. The second phase of The Reach is expected to encompass 166,000 square feet of mixed-use residential space along Summit Drive, just north of McGill Road. Phase 2 may also include a grocery store, pharmacy, fitness facilities, restaurant, brew pub and commercial space.

There are also plans for phases 3 to 6, including residential development at the university’s west gate (McGill Road and Hillside Drive) and residential development that will replace current student housing at McGill Road and Dalhousie Drive. The Reach is being developed by the Thompson Rivers University Community Trust, a corporate trustee created by the university in 2011 to manage development on campus. Money raised from land leased to developers goes to university initiatives such as academic research and student bursaries and scholarships. Part of The Reach’s long-term plan includes seeing 40,000 square feet of new office space, 42,000 square feet of new retail space and a variety of restaurants and other amenities built on the 90 acres designated for development. Population at The Reach is expected to exceed 7,500 residents over the next 30 years. The aim of The Reach, beyond raising money for the university, is to add vibrancy to the campus in a concept similar to UniverCity at SFU and the University Village at UBC.

The collective agreement will see unionized city staff receive a pay raise of 10.75 per cent over the life of the five-year contract — 2.5 per cent in the first year, 2.25 per cent in the second year and two per cent in each of the remaining three years of the agreement.

Defence lawyer Marshall Putnam, however, told court Judd had been documented as having been suicidal multiple times, including an incident as recently as the year before his death.

Prosecutors — the team includes Fras and Neil Wiberg — expect to close their 10-witness case early next week. Defence lawyers have not said whether they will call evidence. Jessup is being defended by Putnam, Jeremy Jensen and Jay Michi. Jessup was charged with an unrelated murder on the eve of his trial. Last Friday, police announced he had been charged with second-degree murder and offering an indignity to a human body in connection with the August 2015 death of 58-year-old Katherine McAdam in Creston. Jessup was arrested for Judd’s murder at the conclusion of a three-and-a-half-year sentence he served for a string of choking incidents involving children, as well as attacks on prison officials.

Warm January, bitterly cold February bad for fruit trees HOMESTAY FAMILIES NEEDED

Don’t expect local apricots this year; cherry crop looks healthy SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

The pear tree in the yard of Meryl Grant’s Westsyde home has shown signs of life a lot later than usual this year. At the beginning of May, the tree is usually in full blossom. As April gave way to May a few weeks ago, Grant’s pear tree had only a few to spare. She doesn’t expect it to bear much fruit and figures a winter cold snap is to blame. She’s correct. An “extremely mild” winter followed by a plunge in temperatures in February is the cause, according to Thompson Rivers University horticulture programs co-ordinator Ernest Phillips. Phillips said the cold snap would most immediately affect stone fruits like apricots, peaches and nectarines. The crop loss occurred because fruit trees’ floral buds, which are initiated in the previous growing season before hardening for winter, began to “wake up” with the warm weather, losing their hardiness and being killed by the February cold snap, Phillips said. This year, Kamloops endured the fifth-coldest February in record, according to Environment Canada data. Phillips said it’s an event that happens every five to seven years. The cold snap affected fruit trees throughout the region, according to BC Fruit Growers’ Association general manager

He said crop losses have happened before, but noted apricots amount to only 1.3 per cent of crops grown in the Thompson-Okanagan, with just 190 acres among the 14,600 acres tracked by BCFGA, based on the organization’s 2016 census. “It tends to be a minor crop that people grow amongst their major crops because it’s such a high-risk crop for our area,” Lucas said. The largest planting of apricots Lucas could recall is 10 acres in Lake Country, between

Kelowna and Vernon, which he said will produce no fruit this year. “People know it’s very sensitive to the cold and are generally prepared to have losses every few years. That the whole crop is lost, it’s not common, but it has happened before,” he said. Lucas said at this stage, he hasn’t heard anything too unusual about other stone fruits, and although he said some cherry blossoms were affected, more trees are maturing in the region each year due to planting, meaning this year’s crop volume will actually increase. When asked if climate change has a role to play, Phillips said it did. “Part of the problem is that we are now planting things in this area that at one time we didn’t,” he said. He said apricots have always grown in the area, but other fruits like peaches, nectarines and certain varieties of grapes are only able to be grown because climate change allows people to “push the boundaries.” Phillips said a worse version of the apricot crop failure could occur if trees are killed due to root damage, caused by a cold snap while there is a lack of snow cover insulating the ground and the roots underneath it. “Roots, unlike the upper part of the tree, do not go dormant for the winter,” he said. “Yes, the ground may freeze — they can handle -5 C — but they can’t handle -15 C.”

THANKFUL FOR THEIR GIVING MOOD

W

hile development in Kamloops continues to sizzle, it is worth making note of the altruism that runs through the companies that are, literally, changing the face of the Tournament Capital. In recent weeks and in the past year, we have learned of projects being undertaken by companies that include significant donations to agencies and people in need. Earlier this month, the Cooper Family Foundation announced plans to establish permanent headquarters for Kamloops Search and rescue and the B.C. Search Dog Association. The foundation will create the space on property the Cooper Companies own in North Kamloops. That will be done via the development and sale of 73 residential units in Brocklehurst, with $10,000 from each sale donated to the foundation to help create the home bases for the search and rescue and search dog organizations. This project follows last year’s initiative, with saw the Cooper Family Foundation work to secure $1.4 million to complete a much-needed expansion at the Marjorie Willoughby Memorial Hospice Home. Another well-known company with a philanthropic side is the Kelson Group, whose founder, Ron Fawcett, revealed in January that he had spent about $10 million on land downtown to help secure a performing-arts centre. These are but two groups that have done wonders to make Kamloops a better place to live — and the charitable work is aided by many other companies, families and individuals who also continue to give back what they can, when they can. If one were to take a bird’s-eye photo of Kamloops, there would be many empty spaces if not for the myriad developments that have risen from the benevolence of those who realize that giving is the engine on which this community operates.

Laundering drama for TV

F

irst it was $1 billion a year (maybe) being laundered through Lower Mainland casinos and real estate. Then it became $5 billion (maybe) in real estate alone for 2018. These dramatic, expanding estimates have persuaded Premier John Horgan and Attorney General David Eby to put aside their serious concerns about cost and a lack of actual charges against actual crooks and reluctantly agree with a strange chorus demanding a public inquiry into B.C. money laundering. Eby and Finance Minister Carole James finally released two thick investigation reports this month, trying to quantify the dirty money in B.C.’s economy. You may have heard the most shocking conclusion, that billions were (maybe) poured into Metro Vancouver real estate, pushing up housing costs by (maybe) as much as five per cent. The real estate report, from a panel of academics headed by former NDP deputy minister Maureen Maloney, weighed in at 184 pages. As fellow academic Murtaza Haider pointed out, “the report does not identify a single laundered dollar or account with laundered money or even a single purchase of property purchased using ill-gotten wealth.” It used computer models and international estimates of crime, going back as far as 1995, extrapolated to Canada and then to its provinces. Contracted investigator Peter

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA German’s first Dirty Money report dealt with B.C. casinos, estimating that laundering through them may have been as much as $100 million. No one really knows because, among other things, high rollers return to gamble their winnings, running the same money through again. (After all the attention on the River Rock Casino in Richmond, German now allows that this activity has mostly disappeared.) German’s second report, among its 360 pages, deals with a Global TV news story last November. It quoted an unnamed police source saying money laundering may be 10 times as big as previously estimated, up to $1 billion in 2016 alone. Eby frequently cites this story and, indeed, has developed a fawning mutual admiration society with Global TV for its supposedly ground-breaking work. Responding to German’s inquiries about this TV story, the RCMP conceded it has classified reports with similar estimates of

real estate activities. It refused to release them even to German, himself a former senior RCMP investigator. German’s conclusion, based on limited disclosure of RCMP data gathering methods, is this: “The figures now in common parlance are of $1 billion or more per year of dirty money being ploughed into B.C. real estate and of equally large sums being laundered through casinos. Unfortunately, without actually quantifying these amounts using a generally accepted model and having access to the necessary data, all estimates are guesses.” The RCMP further contradicted this TV story, saying its still-classified report of high-end real estate purchases over two years does not focus on organized crime actors and does not measure money laundering. In short, this award-winning TV story was bogus. In an odd move, Global TV joined the B.C. Green Party, the B.C. Government Employees’ Union and other partisan actors in the chorus of demands for this inquiry. Horgan and Eby had given many solid reasons why a long lawyer festival with no authority to lay charges would be a waste of time and millions. But now they’ve decided it’s a great idea to stage an inquiry that will put previous government members on the stand, just months before the next scheduled election in the fall of 2021. They’re hoping for compliant TV coverage of that, too. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

A DEMAND FOR A HEALTHY CITY SAFETY FIRST AT SKATE PARK ON MCARTHUR ISLAND Editor: Things have changed a lot since I was a kid. My friends and I usually had the skate park to ourselves. For safety reasons, it’s time to get some rules and regulations in order. Skateboarding and other activities are a great way to promote self-discipline, creativity and self-expression. I am excited to see such an engagement from the youth. Today, the skate park is busy every night and it’s only a matter of time before a toddler riding on a bicycle gets seriously injured in a collision. Skateboarding is a high-speed activity and boards, shoes and helmets are always flying everywhere. Children ages 12 and under should have to take a mandatory safety course to learn the rules of the park and how to stay safe. Just as if one is driving a car, one must always keep right, always be aware of one’s surroundings and never dart left, into the centre, without a full 360-degree shoulder check. Age restrictions and a mandatory safety course certification is only a short-term solution because on any given Friday night, there are dozens of people using the McArthur Island facility. I think it is time to get funding in order and build a beginner’s plaza. Graeme Martel Kamloops

Editor: We have the innate right to breathe fresh, clean air. It’s torture watching the new leaves of spring branches bend to the will of the wind on the other side of the glass. We dare not open the window again for fear of the poison in the air. Our bodies know when they are being poisoned. It’s torture to be jolted awake from a deep, cozy slumber by the poison slithering through our body, forcing us to close the window and shut out the cool, dewy, morning breeze. Our bodies know when they are being infected. It’s our instinct to know when our body is dying. It’s torture throwing open the window at the first sign of a warm spring day and choking on the repulsive stench of human

excrement or noxious sewer gases. It’s torture to then spend hours on end opening and closing the window, peering out hesitantly, delicate nose first, hoping and praying for mercy. Some of us were born in Kamloops and some of us have made this wonderful city our home. Regardless, we all began this journey when we entered this world and we all have crossed oceans of time to get here, to this moment, to live among good people, to live safely, to live honestly, to live our lives and our passions in good health and happiness. Sewer sludge doesn’t belong in Turtle Valley any more than it does in Kamloops. Smokestacks that spew out pure poison into our air do not belong in Kamloops, either. Cities in Sweden, Norway, Denmark,

Germany and many other European nations have successfully managed their air and land pollution and I’m wondering if any of the officials in Kamloops have ever done any reading about the already existing solutions. The threat is real and solutions are available. The only question remaining is why Kamloops officials are still refusing to implement effective regulations to eliminate pollution in our city. We are demanding the freedom to open our windows and go about our lives breathing in the healthiest air these mountains and rivers can deliver. We are demanding the freedom to live disease-free. We are demanding the right to breathe clean air. Cindy Allan Kamloops

USED NEEDLES MORE THAN A TRASH PROBLEM Editor: It’s no secret Kamloops has been dealing with an increasing drug and crime problem and it’s no secret that the spinoff of that crisis has plagued our city with harm-reduction paraphernalia. The paraphernalia exists as a direct result of our health authority’s antiquated harmreduction policy. We have seen areas of our city overrun with biohazard filth that is an unquestionable risk to our community, so will

someone please tell me why our city council is so bent on calling it trash? On May 13, Kamloops Coun. Kathy Sinclair once again took to social media to state that “used needles are a litter problem and need to be dealt with as such.” I was stunned to read it the first time but after reading it again, I am angry. Here are the facts for anyone wondering what the risk to their health is should they be poked on the streets of

Kamloops. Studies have shown the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can survive in a syringe for up to six week, while hepatitis C can remain detectable for up to two months. If Sinclair can tell me when that needle was dropped and by whom, perhaps I could accept her zero-harm philosophy. Saying “transmission is virtually zero” is no different than telling me my odds

K.A.S.P. wants to Thank You Local hip-hop artist celebrates music video release with Mastermind Studios

Film one of 400 submissions being judged

MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A local artist and at-risk youth worker turned his rough childhood into motivation and a music career, thanking his past through his latest music video, which is a collaboration with Kamloops film company Mastermind Studios. Growing up in East Vancouver wasn’t easy for Rob K.A.S.P. Sawan as his father was a heroin addict, but it’s a part of his life from which he learned. “I focus on what I learned from him because he cleaned up and became 14 years sober. That’s why I do the work I do, whether it be helping people [or] doing music — showing people there’s a hope,” said Sawan, whose moniker, K.A.S.P., stands for Keeping Alive Stories for the People. In addition to an awardwinning 20-year music career in hip hop, Sawan tours Indigenous communities throughout Canada, speaking and working with youth through motivational camps and programs. “We promote tradition over addiction,” said Sawan, who has been in the music industry since 2000. His latest music video, Thank You, officially launched on Monday with a screening at Mastermind Studios and is now available on Telus Optik. It was funded in part from a $10,000 Telus Storyhive grant last July — one of only 20 selected for the program each year in B.C.

Mastermind vying for grant to create documentary on addiction in Kamloops

Rob K.A.S.P. Sawan on the set while filming his music video, Thank You.

Another $10,000 was supplied pro bono from the local film studio. Thank You features DJing, drumming, break dancing, powwow dancing, graffiti and First Nations art. The video is also available on the Stingray music video channel and on Facebook. Mastermind owner Peter Cameron-Inglis said bringing cultures together to collaborate on a project that is constructive and meaningful is why Mastermind helped fund the music video. “When it’s a project that we really want to get behind because it’s got more than just entertainment value … then that’s usually something we’ll lend our support to,” Cameron-

Inglis told KTW. Sawan said the end product is “exactly the way I thought it would be,” showcasing similarities between hip hop and Indigenous culture. As the cost of producing a music video can be prohibitive for many artists, Cameron-Inglis said they sought out Storyhive last summer in a last-minute effort to put in an application. As for Mastermind Studios getting into the music video business, Cameron-Inglis said he is always open to supporting local artists. “Nothing on tap directly yet, but there are a couple of artists who have talked to us and are considering going down the road and making a music video as well,” he said.

A local film company is hoping to receive plenty of votes as it aims to grab a $50,000 grant from Telus’ Storyhive program to make a documentary film exploring addiction in Kamloops. There is a four-day window open for Mastermind Studios to obtain the grant. Mastermind owner Peter CameronInglis said he is so passionate about the project that he stepped down as chair of the board of directors for the ASK Wellness Society, the social-services agency that helps those in need. “To do this in a director’s capacity would have been a conflict of interest, so I have stepped down from the board,” Cameron-Inglis said. Dead to Rights is a documentary that will examine the issue of whether people should be forced to enter treatment because their addictions are interfering with civil society or whether they have the right to continue to use while people continue to witness the impacts of addictions. Cameron-Inglis told KTW there’s a prolific, albeit small, population in Kamloops that refuses to seek treatment for drug addiction. “Us as a community, we — for lack of a better word — whitewash the entire homeless and addicted population with the stigma from a couple of dozen people,” Cameron-Inglis said, noting the film will explore mandated

treatment as a possible solution. Cameron-Inglis said people who are chronically ill often don’t have the mental ability to seek treatment. “We want to explore what does it take for us to fix this,” he said, arguing what has been done to this point hasn’t worked. “The problem with mandated treatment, however, is it infringes on a person’s rights,” Cameron-Inglis said. The documentary will involve ASK Wellness staff, a pair of judges, a doctor, a former corrections officer, Mayor Ken Christian and Coun. Dale Bass. Voting opened on Tuesday for a four-day period, after which 15 projects will be selected. Another 15 applicants will be selected by a jury. Cameron-Inglis said 400 submissions are being voted on in B.C. and Alberta. “The beautiful thing about that is the fact that eight of those submissions is from our region,” he said. Voting for Storyhive projects can be done online at https://www.storyhive.com. Storyhive is a public access competition from Telus that offers production grants and distribution opportunities to filmmakers in B.C. and Alberta. Grant recipients will be awarded in July and winning documentaries will be available on Telus Optik TV.

Youth homelessness report details Thi s Friday && and Saturday expected to be released Thursday May 31 - J & une 1 KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

In-depth results from A Way Home Kamloops’ second youth homelessness count last year will be released on Thursday at Kamloops United Church, downtown at St. Paul Street and Fourth Avenue. During a three-day period last year, from May 8 to May 10, more than 1,000 surveys were completed by youth ages 13 to 24, with 136 youth identified as homeless or experiencing homelessness over the course of a year. Of those youth, 56 said they were currently experiencing

visible homelessness, most of whom (35) were sleeping in public on the street or in empty buildings. Meanwhile, 30 youth said they were experiencing hidden homelessness, including couchsurfing, and 50 said they had experienced homelessness in the past year. The presentation on Thursday will provide more information — including on sub-populations such as those younger than 19 and Indigenous youth — as well as recommendations to prevent and end youth homelessness in Kamloops.

Youth homelessness counts have been taking place in the city for years. In 2016, A Way Home Kamloops was the first Canadian community to launch such an initiative. A Way Home executive director Katherine McParland is also the subject of a Storyhive documentary pitch, which is currently vying among others for funding. McParland, a well-known local advocate for homeless youth, was once herself homeless. Last year, she was awarded the YMCA-YWCA Peace Medal.

JOANNE HAMMOND PHOTO Archeologists are in the business of making inferences of the past and not necessarily proving hard facts, says Kamloops archeologist Clinton Coates.

Chile have been found that confidently pre-date the Clovis sites initially associated with the Ice Free corridor theory. This, along with refinements in the timing of the ice retreats, combined with ongoing studies of sea level variation over time along the coast of British Columbia, have resulted in the development of a Coastal Migration theory. This theory suggests people could have followed the edge of the coast into ice-free parts of the Americas prior to the existence of the ice-free cor-

According to this theory, during, the last Ice Age, lowered sea levels created a land bridge across the Bering Strait from Siberia to Alaska. This allowed Clovis people to enter the Americas through a gap in the ice along the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains. Simple, straightforward, easily understood. Unfortunately for the proponents of this Clovis First theory, inconvenient facts began to accumulate, no matter how much they tried to ignore them. Ancient archeological sites in

their practices and patterns of living. Inevitably, as more work is done in other sites, more data is uncovered that raises the “but wait, what about this …?” question over and over again. Take the question of how humans populated the Americas as presented in the TV show. There are currently two major competing theories to explain how people first came to the Americas. The first and most well known is the Ice Free Corridor theory that has held sway for much of the 20th century.

ow do you tell when an archeologist is making stuff up? His lips are moving. A couple of months ago, I was watching a show promoting the idea that an ice bridge route from Europe to eastern North America might have helped ancient Solutrian people migrate into North America. It followed the typical science show format, first outlining the proposal with supporting information, then bringing in opposing opinions for balance. I won’t go into the details of the show, or offer my thoughts on which side (if either) I believe. Suffice to say that seldom have I been so annoyed with the presenters on all sides of a science show. In science, the traditional evolution for theories and hypotheses tend to either begin with an observation followed by an attempt at explanation, or an idea, followed by attempts to collect data to test its validity. Over time, in hard sciences, this has tended to lead toward ever more simple and elegant theories and models that help to effectively explain the world around us. This same quest for elegance and simplicity has also been a hallmark of many earlier archeological theories and explanations. Over and over, we find examples where an archeologist digs a site, then makes grand pronouncements about the people,

ridor. Though the cracks in the Clovis First theory had started to appear quite a long time ago, it was still taught in schools and presented in popular science televisions programs up until quite recently. So, what is a non-archeologist to do when watching an archeology program on TV? First, be suspicious of elegant and simple explanations. This may work for astrophysicists and chemists, but unfortunately, humans tend to be distressingly messy and complex and almost always defy simple explanations. Second, look for the “cover your backside” terms that prudent scientists use. These are terms like “The data suggest that ...” and “Based on the evidence we think that ...” and “One of the possible explanations might be ...” This alerts the viewer that these are not cast-in-stone facts, but are theories, ideas or stories attempting to explain what might have happened. Always be suspicious of the “archeology expert” trying to sell his or her pet idea without solid evidence to back it up. Archeologists are in the business of making inferences of the past and not necessarily proving hard facts. Problem Gambling Help Line 1-888-795-6111 www.bcresponsiblegambling.ca

The white horse, Tony (now known as Malachi), and Poppy, the brown and white horse, were rescued from behind fire lines in the Cariboo in the summer of 2017. They were then separated for almost two years. This past April, the equine mates were reunited at the Epona Rise Retreat Centre in Heffley Creek. WENDY SCHNEIDER PHOTO

Horsing around at equine reunion in Heffley MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

pair of horses near Kamloops is proving the power of friendship can gallop across time and distance and leave flames flickering in the past. A pair of draft horses rescued from behind fire lines in the Williams Lake area have been reunited two years after being separated. Tony the horse — the evacuated equine KTW reported on in 2017 — was living out his days at the Epona Rise Retreat Centre in Heffley Creek when his herd mate and best friend Poppy showed up to join him on April 26. The large white horse noticed the familiar brown and white pattern of Poppy right away and galloped over to greet her. “He recognized her and then became very protective of her coming into the herd and they were inseparable,” Epona Centre owner Hillary Schneider said. In July 2017, Tony and Poppy were rescued together by the BC SPCA, which said at the time the horses could barely walk when they were discovered, due to the poor condition of their hooves. Horse hooves require regular maintenance, usually

needing to be clipped every six weeks or so. Left alone, bone health deteriorates, impacting the horse’s ability to walk. The worst cases can be fatal. “They were in a state of neglect when they got seized, so they probably wouldn’t have been able to get away from the fire if the SPCA hadn’t have gotten them,” Schneider said. The two were separated during the adoption process. Poppy was adopted quickly by a woman residing in the Lower Mainland, but her owner didn’t have the space conducive to the horse’s long-term health, Schneider said. Having heard that Schneider had taken in Tony — who now goes by the name Malachi — the woman reached out to Schneider and asked if she would reunite the pair by taking in Poppy. “I of course said yes,” Schneider told KTW. She had adopted Tony after the BC SPCA posted about him online. “Having an opportunity to reunite two bonded horses was something I wanted to do,” Schneider said, noting she has seen other horses at Epona develop bonds similar to those formed by humans. Though he didn’t appear depressed without his best friend, Tony did seem guarded and reluctant to bond with the rest of the herd when he arrived at Epona Centre. “You could tell he was a little bit on the outskirts,”

25th Annual PROGRESS

Schneider said, noting the horse is now healthy. Poppy, however is not at 100 per cent as she has arthritis and still requires more rehabilitation work to her feet, Schneider said. She has started a GoFundMe page for anyone wishing to donate to Poppy’s first year of care at the centre. Funds raised will cover expenses such as Poppy’s vet bills and food. Schneider also started a GoFundMe for Tony (Malachi) during his first year at the centre. Schneider said she runs the pages as a platform for people who have inquired about supporting the rescued horses. One month into her arrival, Poppy has taken on an alpha mare role. “The integration went very smoothly,” Schneider said. “You still see them together, but she’s risen to the top of the leadership in the herd.” The 80-acre Epona Centre just north of Kamloops is home to two herds of 27 horses. Schneider has previously adopted from the SPCA and has also saved horses bound for the slaughterhouse. Her centre uses the animals for therapy, not riding, with the injured and elderly horses free to roam in a herd on her property. Schneider also hosts retreats and sessions for private and corporate clients, noting horses offer valuable lessons in leadership.

Grad season has begun in Kamloops-Thompson Nearly 1,000 students in the Kamloops-Thompson school district will cross the stage during the next few weeks — and the grad season began with last Friday’s commencement ceremony at Barriere secondary. Graduation class sizes in the district’s 16 secondary schools range from five students at Logan Lake secondary to 223 students at NorKam senior secondary. Valedictorians have been chosen for each school’s commencement ceremony, as well as for district honours and Aboriginal graduation. The theme of “choice” emerged when the 23 valedictorians were asked by the school district’s communications staff about their school experience. Students said they valued participating in programs such as RCMP Academy, Junior Wildfire Boot Camp and Heavy Metal Rocks. Others appreciated having alternate ways to complete high school through more personalized learning experiences at Street School, Four Directions and Twin Rivers Education Centre. The Kamloops-Thompson school district celebrates its highest achieving students at the annual honours graduation. The top five per cent of students of this year’s class will be recognized for their hard work and achievements. Honour graduates have studied and excelled in science, art and humanities and many have secured scholarships enabling them to pursue post-secondary studies across the country. Irene Kuo, co-valedictorian at South Kamloops secondary, cited caring teachers as the key to her success. “I have been so fortunate to have supportive, caring teachers who have taught me how to be more selfless, compassionate

Work continues on the West Victoria Street reconstruction project. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

WEST VIC PROJECT NOW 24/7 CHRISTOPHER FOULDS KTW EDITOR editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops has moved the Victoria Street West reconstruction project to a 24-hour schedule for the next to six to eight weeks, meaning crews are now working around the clock. The result will mean the project will likely be finished by the summer of 2020, about a half-year earlier than originally estimated, with no extra costs above the $13-million budget, according to Darren Crundwell, the city’s capital projects manager. Extreme Excavating began 24-hour work this past Sunday. Until then, construction work had been implemented in 12-hour shifts, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The move to a 24-hour construction schedule is expected to shorten the project’s duration by four to six months. During daytime hours, two lanes of traffic will be maintained. Decisions regarding a switch to single-lane, alternating traffic during evening hours will be made by Extreme as the night work progresses. “When we started the communications for this project, we always indicated that there would be times when we would be going to 24-hour-a-day, six days a week and night shifts,” Crundwell told KTW, noting the shift to around-the-clock work is being done

now due to the constrained environment on the south side of the street. “If you look at Emerald House, it’s basically right against the property line. It’s just so constrained working in there, we know we’re going to be more efficient working at night. And possibly, I’ll throw it out there, after 10 o’clock at night, we can go down to single lane and it won’t impact the public.” Crundwell said there are milestones in the schedule the city and Extreme want to achieve, noting the project remains in schedule and on budget. Crundwell clarified that when he cited, in a May 10 KTW story, high costs and difficulties working with utilities as being challenges to working around the clock, he was referencing queries regarding 24-hour work through the entire project schedule. The next six to eight weeks during which crews will be working around the clock will involve deep servicing of water, storm, sewer lines and BC Hydro lines on the south side of West Victoria Street. “It’s only for two months. We’re not proposing to carry this forward to the end of the project,” Crundwell said. “You know, we were asked these questions about the bridge, too [the 2015 resurfacing project of Overlanders Bridge]. If we’re doing paving and finishing work, working at night is not the best. It’s not ideal. Your qual-

ity and finishing are not there, either.” Stage 1 work continues and will overlap with Stage 2 work until approximately the end of July. Stage 1 construction is taking place between First Avenue and the centre island at Seymour Street West/Victoria Street West. Current stage 1 traffic flow patterns will remain in place and transit and emergency services vehicles will continue to receive priority routing around the Stage 1 construction zone. Stage 2 will encompass the Victoria Street West corridor from Seymour Street West near BCLC’s upper parking lot entrance to just west of Boomers Automotive near Overlanders Bridge. All businesses along the Victoria Street West corridor are open and accessible, including those located within stage 1 below BCLC and those located on both sides of the road within stage 2. A variety of work is being done in the project — upgrading utilities below the street that are more than 100 years old, adding new lighting and sidewalks on both sides of the street, landscaping, repaving the road, signal and crosswalk changes and relocation of power lines underground. To view traffic webcams on West Victoria Street, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com and click on the image of the traffic pylon down the right side of the home page.

We’ll show you it’s possible.

A Chilliwack-based firm has been chosen to design the $34.5-million expansion to Valleyview secondary. CHP Architects was one of seven firms that responded to the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s public request for proposal (RFP) for prime consultants. “CHP has extensive experience in several areas of the province,” said Art McDonald, the school district’s director facilities and transportation. “We like the look of the work they have done and the experience they have in the sector.” CHP’s previous projects have included the design for Canyon Falls Middle School in Kelowna and the H.S. Grenda Middle School in Lake Country, as well as a recent upgrade and addition at Langley secondary. “With a rapidly changing job market and educational curriculum, facilities have changed dramatically to prepare students for a 21stcentury workplace,” said Justin Dyck, a partner with CHP. “We are keen to share our knowledge of the most current and cutting-edge design practices in educational facilities and discovering a design solution that is efficient, effective and unique to Kamloops.” The Valleyview expansion, announced on April 12, will bring the school’s capacity from 675 to 1,200 students. With 940 students currently at VSS, the addition will result in the removal of the nine portables on the site by the time the project is completed in September 2022. Thirty-one days passed from the day of the funding announcement to selection of the design firm. Built to LEED Gold standards, the project will include 20 new classrooms, a new gymnasium, a multi-purpose space, special education classrooms, a new pick-up and drop-off area for buses, parking stalls and outdoor play areas. The Kamloops-Thompson school district is contributing $1.75 million toward the cost of the project, with the remaining $32.75 million covered by the provincial government.

‘Tis the season to pay taxes Property tax notices are on their way to Kamloops residents. Those who signed up to receive e-bills should have already received emails, while those who receive paper notices will receive them in their mailboxes this week. Home owner grants (HOG) can be claimed at Kamloops.ca/eHOG and taxes can be paid via online banking. This year, due to road work happening near city hall as part of

the West Victoria Street reconstruction project, residents who want to pay their taxes and claim their HOG in person can visit the city’s temporary property tax/HOG kiosk at the Tournament Capital Centre, at 910 McGill Road on the TRU campus. The kiosk is located upstairs in the parks and recreation office and will be open Mondays to Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., from May 27 to June 5. There will be

five temporary reserved parking stalls adjacent to the TCC roundabout during that time. Drop boxes are available at city hall (24 hours), at the TCC (5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.) and at the North Shore Community Policing Office, which is at 915 Seventh St. (Mondays to Fridays from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.). This year’s property taxes and home owner grant applications are

due by July 2. A 10 per cent penalty will be levied on July 3 for any outstanding taxes. The final residential property tax hike is 2.96 per cent, resulting in an increase of $62 to the average assessed ($408,000) household. Council has decreased slightly major industry’s rates at a cost of about $4 to the average household. Visit Kamloops.ca for more details on property taxes and HOGs.

Good-luck Gertrude a heck of a hen SOUTH KAMLOOPS TITANS’ RUGBY TEAM ADOPTS LIVE CHICKEN MASCOT AHEAD OF SURPRISE SEASON Kam was going the way of the dodo, its goose appearing cooked for a third straight season, with the team having folded due to a dearth of players in 2016-2017 and 20172018. “Based on my background, I was thinking about not putting a team in again,” said head coach Scott Eising, who moved to Canada from Australia about five years ago. “We haven’t got a lot of guys who played rugby before. If it was up to me, I would have said let’s fold and train them up so they don’t get hurt, but I was told the competition was a lot different. “They put in the hard work and

ertrude is their golden hen, the clucking that drives the rucking. The Okanagan champion South Kamloops Titans, undefeated in league play with their one-year-old mascot chicken on the sideline, are flying the coop for the AA Tier 2 B.C. High School Rugby Championships in Abbotsford, a bird of prey once left for dead. Senior boys’ rugby at South

I showed them the way. All of it goes to the boys.” It most certainly does not all go to the boys, who rave about Eising and assistant coach Wyatt Henry, the tandem that taught the ragtag group of multi-sport athletes how to conduct themselves with an egg-shaped ball, many of them having never picked one up until this year. And perhaps it is the chicken who comes first in this story. “Gertrude the hen, oh my goodness,” said South Kamloops winger Birch Mierau, whose eyes lit up when bokking about the bird. “The first time I heard about Gertrude was in a group chat. One of the boys was like, ‘Yeah, I’m going to bring my hen down to Rugby Fest.’ We’re like, OK, whatever, I don’t know what he’s talking about. We get there and there is this chicken running around the field. He escapes from the bag and we’re like, what is this? He’s like, ‘This is Gertrude, my hen.’ She was with us all tournament. She came to our semifinal game, to our final game. We held up the chicken. We worshipped the chicken. I don’t know what it was. We all kissed him. Hopefully, we don’t get salmonella.” KTW visited the oft-misgendered hen on Monday night. “I’m holding Gertrude. She’s being pretty silent at the moment. She’s pretty calm,” said Grade 12 prop Tristan Cooke, whose family keeps four birds behind its Aberdeen home, a roost made possible when a controversial egglaying hen by-law passed in 2016. “Usually in the games, when we have her there, she just sits with one of the parents. It’s a pretty weird thing, but hey, we’ve won most of our games with her. “I just kind of thought, hey, we don’t have a mascot, so if I bring a chicken, maybe it will do something. We won that game and I kept on bringing her to the games I was able to make it to.” The Titans posted two wins apiece in league play against

Princess Margaret secondary of Penticton and Clarence Fulton secondary of Vernon to reach the Okanagan final last Thursday, a title tilt that decided the region’s only berth at the eight-team B.C. championship. With Gertrude looking on, South Kam was

unstoppable, mauling Fulton 39-21 to claim the regional banner and its unlikely place at the provincial championship. “I’m sure they fear the chicken,” Mierau said. “They look over and, ‘What are these boys crowding around? Oh, it’s a chicken.’ “I think it’s more of a distraction technique, honestly. She’s calm, but fierce. She’ll give you that look with her eye and she’ll chase you down the field if she has to.” Gertrude was carried to the Cookes’ driveway on Monday night to take questions from KTW. Her responses weren’t exactly poultry poetry. In fact, she refused to answer the first query, replied with a death stare to Question No. 2 and the third question prompted her to throw a fit, during which she batted her wings wildly, escaped Cooke’s grasp and defecated on the driveway. The Titans were much more receptive earlier that day after practice on sunny Kamloops Rugby Field in Exhibition Park. See TITANS, A20

Foster Wynne: “Gertrude showed up during Rugby Fest. He’s been our good luck charm ever since. Wait, is Gertrude a rooster? Team: “No, she’s a hen!” Wynne: “Well, having a fine female chicken on the sidelines, you’ve got to impress her. It puts a little pressure on us, but I think we’ve been performing a lot better since she’s been around.” Sheldon Gerlib: “I’d say a good half of our team has never even played rugby before this year. Tristan brought his chicken, our mascot. She brings the hype in before the games. This chicken is kind of like a cat. You can carry it, pet it.” Kayden Gauthier: “A lot of them kiss the chicken. A lot us just pet the chicken. It depends on how comfortable you are with the chicken, I guess.” The Titans, ranked No. 5 at AA provincials, will square off against No. 4 Byrne Creek of Burnaby in Round 1 on Wednesday in the City in the Country. Also at the tournament are No. 1 D.W. Poppy of Langley, No. 2 Sir Charles Tupper of Vancouver, No. 3 LV Rogers of Nelson, No. 6 Glenyon Norfolk of Victoria, No. 7 Windsor secondary of North Vancouver and No. 8 Alberni District. Here is the Kamloops squad’s dilemma: If good-luck Gertrude is their golden hen, their cluck is in danger of running out. Cooke is a graduating South Kam student, but is pursuing

his welding ticket at Thompson Rivers University in a program that requires him to be at school from Monday to Thursday. “I reached out to the school and explained it’s a big thing to go to provincials and this is his last chance,” Eising said. “At the end of the day, it’s up to him if he wants to risk getting marks taken away for not being at school.” The Titans’ prop does not expect to be at provincials on Wednesday. No Cooke likely means no Gertrude. “I don’t think she would survive it down there — oh, there she goes, she’s clucking, she’s fine (this is when she pooped on the driveway) — but yeah, I don’t think she can make it to provincials, sadly,” said Cooke, who delivers pizzas for Domino’s. “Unless we can ship her down there in a crate. It’s been a busy semester.” Team members are not panicked. Gertrude has not been present at every match this season. Work ethic — extra practices, three- and four-hour training sessions, some of them in the rain — is the real backbone of the team. But this is a brood that peacocks when its hen is handy, plays champagne rugby when feathers are flaunting. And this is no time to lay an egg. “She’ll be there in spirit. We have photos of her,” Mierau said. “Yeah, I’ve kissed the chicken. “I’m hoping that Gertrude can make it, but I don’t know if she will.”

Absence of Kasuya, Reichelt felt; new school in session for Lions

Gardener Of The Week

MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Hunter Steward misses an old friend. “As soon as I walked through the doors and walked by the equipment room, part of my brain wanted to yell at him, talk shit to him a little bit,” the sixth-year B.C. Lions’ offensive lineman told KTW at training camp in Kamloops on Monday, speaking of longtime equipment manager Ken (Kato) Kasuya. “He wasn’t there, but he’s here in spirit. He’s forever a Lion. He’s always in our thoughts and we’re doing all this for him this year. It was very, very sad to hear the news in the off-season.” Kasuya, who was 13 when he joined the Lions as a ball boy in 1980, was 53 when he died in April. Cause of death was not released, but he suffered from kidney disease and had a stroke in 2015. The loss of Kasuya and November retirement of athletic therapist Bill Reichelt — who spent 42 seasons working for the Lions — has created a void of personality and knowledge that became tangible when rookie camp began at Hillside Stadium on May 15. “You don’t replace those guys,” said Stewart, a 6-foot-6, 315-pound brute from Calgary. Off-field personnel charged with spurring the Lions into a new era include head athletic therapist Tristan Sandhu and equipment manager Aaron Yeung, both of whom have close ties to their predecessors. Yeung’s duties at a hockey shop in Surrey included preparing the Lions’ jerseys, work that brought him into contact with Kasuya in 2006. By 2010, Yeung was volunteering at B.C. Place Stadium on game days. He was hired to assist Kasuya in 2016. Perhaps Kasuya, an East Vancouver product who pedalled his bike to Empire Stadium to volunteer 40 years ago, saw himself in Yeung, who was born in Vancouver and grew up in Burnaby. “There’s not really a school or a college for this,” Yeung said. “It’s usually guys who start as a ball boy or volunteer who have gotten the respect from equipment managers and have learned on the fly. “Kato meant everything to the team. We obviously became friends, were really close. He came to my wedding. As someone who’s been in the organization for 40 years, he definitely had his way of doing things and I learned a lot from being around him. “We have to carry on his legacy, but I’ve got to do things my way, too. We were different people. There is definitely a few things that didn’t work. Kato was more old school.” New school is king for the Leos these days, with the arrival of general manager Ed Hervey in 2017 and hiring of head coach DeVone Claybrooks this past off-season marking the end of the Wally Buono Era. Brent Frid and Stu Mitchell are on the equipment staff with Yeung, while Sandhu leads the trainers’ crew, which includes assistant therapists Chris Wong, Emma Pringle and Craig Cuizon. Sandhu, an Ontario product educated at McMaster and Mount Royal universities, splashed his resume across the CFL after graduation. Reichelt was impressed with his credentials and Sandhu hopped on board in 2013. “I learned a lot of good lessons from Bill, just watching him interact with the guys, how he treated, how he taped,” said Sandhu, who was promoted into the head therapist role in 2016, when Reichelt became medical director. “Overall, it was really important in my development, in how I work today and how our training continues to function. “Bill always kept things very light. The training room wasn’t a place to be bogged down. It was always a place where the guys could come, hang out, share their stories, but also get better and get back on the field as quick as possible.”

MARTY HASTINGS/KTW Aaron Yeung (left) and Tristan Sandhu have been working for the B.C. Lions longer than most of the CFL club’s players, but their experience pales in comparison to those who came before them — Ken Kasuya and Bill Reichelt.

Support Your Local Business Owners Supporting a Hunger-free Community Yeung learned a lesson in that vein from Kasuya, taking advice about a line that must be walked with players. “Your employer is the BC Lions,” Yeung said. “You’re a staff member. You don’t want to be going over and partying with these guys or telling them everything. “The best way is to shut up and do your job. Try to stay as neutral as possible. Yes, you are close with the players, but also you have that relationship with your GM, your coaches. You can’t choose a side. You’ve just got to do your job.” Yeung’s relationship with his Lions’ mentor took on another dimension when Kasuya became ill. Yeung’s father, a diabetic as Kasuya was, has been on a waiting list for a new kidney for five years, on dialysis and living the limited lifestyle that treatment entails. “That’s why I was able to give him insight on what to expect, what was going to happen,” Yeung said. “I let Kato know how fortunate he was that he got a kidney donation from his cousin.” Kasuya always had the final call while he was in charge of the equipment team, but softened stances as trust grew with Yeung. “He kind of let me in. It meant a lot,” Yeung said. “The respect level was there. At rookie camp, it was a little bit of a weird feeling when Kato was not in his office, in his chair. He sat in the same chair. That was his area. “But training camp happens so fast. We rarely get breaks. Maybe after camp’s done, maybe it will sink in more. Right now, everyone is so busy working 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. every day.” Shooting the breeze with Reichelt during down time — listening to stories of players past, yarns usually spun with a comedic twist — was among Steward’s favourite pastimes during camp. Sauntering over to take a friendly jab at Kasuya was another. Those days are over, a familiar refrain in the den as the Lions forge ahead. “You were talking smack with him [Kasuya] every morning. He was always firing back at us,” Steward said. “He was a really good buddy. And Billy was awesome. Same thing. He brightens up the room.” “They’re irreplaceable, but the guys who are in their positions now, it’s not like they’re brand new faces trying to make their imprint on the organization. “They’ve been here. They know the guys. They know how to run their spots in the organization.”

Coach Sue Kabotoff is looking forward to next season, when her NorKam Saints will be aiming for another shot at G.P. Vanier of Courtenay. Vanier dispatched NorKam 35-5 in the final of the AA Girls B.C. High School Rugby Championship last weekend in Shawnigan Lake, marking the second straight year the Towhees have downed the Saints in the title tilt. “I have a young team,” Kabotoff said. “I’m looking for-

ward to a rematch next year. “We gelled as a team. It was a defeat and they were down, but they fought hard and they can be proud of what their accomplishments were.” No. 2-ranked NorKam breezed past Langley in Round 1, winning by about 60 points,

and squeaked past Abbotsford 24-19 to reach the final. “Abby was phenomenal in their rucks and we kept coming at them until we punched through,” Kabotoff said. “We were tired and beat up and we had Vanier.” NorKam, which won a sevens rugby provincial championship earlier this season, fell 27-10 to Vanier in the 2018 AA final in Williams Lake. The Westsyde Whundas qualified to compete in the Tier 2 division at this year’s provincial girls’ rugby championships. They finished seventh among eight teams.

The 38-year-old Kamloops resident finished the race in 1:30.27, two minutes and 56 seconds off the pace set by defending world champion Kate Courtney of the U.S. After two races on the seven-stop circuit, Courtney leads overall World Cup standings with 700 points, having also finished atop the podium in the opening event last weekend in Germany. Courtney, 23, became the first American in 20 years to win gold in a crosscountry event. Pendrel, who placed 12th in Germany, is 15th overall heading into the next event, which will run from July 5 to July 7 in Vallnord, Andorra.

Harbhajan Singh Nagra May 12, 1926 –May 25, 2019

Sadly, on the early morning of Saturday, May 25, 2019, our Papa Ji; Harbhajan Singh Nagra passed away. He is survived by his beloved wife of 72 years Joginder Kaur Nagra, his three daughters and sons-in-law, his son and daughter-inlaw, ten grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. He was born and raised in Jiwan pur Jattan Punjab, India. As a young man, he served in the Indian Army and soon after started his family. In 1981, he came to Canada to start a new journey with the same determination as he always exerted. After many years of working in Canada, both him and his wife retired to enjoy time between India and Canada. With a background in the army, life was routine.... each day started by completing his morning paath and breakfast with his wife, followed by a walk along Schubert Drive, to then relax for the day as evening approached, he was particular about dinner time and completing his evening paath. He exemplified pride, honesty, integrity, hard work and punctuality.

Alice Margaret Hornell (née Kunkel)

July 4, 1936 – May 22, 2019

Alice Hornell died peacefully with her husband of nearly 62 years by her side on May 22, 2019. Born on July 4, 1936 in Calmar, Alberta, Alice was the fourth of five children born to Fred and Elsie Kunkel, immigrants from Russia and Poland respectively who came to Canada following the First World War and who farmed near Calmar. For Alice, her girlhood years on the farm were a magical time that left her with wonderful stories about nighttime sleigh rides snuggled under buffalo robes, walking long miles to school through snowy, sometimes wolf infested woods and happy family evenings gathered around the radio listening to the Shadow and other classic radio plays. The family moved to Penticton following the Second World War where Alice attended high school and began her working life as a telegraph operator with CN Telecommunications, a job which took her to Kamloops, Vancouver, and Williams Lake and where she met her husband Bill Hornell, whom she married in 1957. For many years Alice and Bill lived in Prince George, where their three sons were born, before finally making the permanent move to Kamloops in 1974. Alice was a loving and devoted mother and wife. She kept an immaculate home and loved gardening, summers at the family cabin on Mable Lake and month-long trailer trips fishing the lakes of the Chilcotin. She loved drives through the

In summers, he enjoyed sitting in the yard to enjoy the herbs, vegetables and vibrant floral garden. As fall approached, he looked forward to booking his trip “home” for the winter months. While in India, his passion was about helping others and building his home. He will be sadly missed by his immediate and extended family, friends in Canada, India and abroad. “Goodbye Papa Ji” The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff of Royal Inland Hospital and Overlander Trinity Care for keeping him comfortable in his last days. Funeral Services will be held at Schoening Funeral Chapel, 513 Seymour Street on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 1:00 pm. Cremation to follow at Pine Crematorium and a Prayer Service at the Gurdwara Sahib Society, 1345 Ord Road, Kamloops. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

backroads of BC’s interior and took every opportunity for a road trip. She also enjoyed cruises to Mexico and Alaska with Bill and cousins Fred and Violet. As a devout Jehovah’s Witness, her faith along with the fellowship of her spiritual brothers and sisters and voluntary service, gave her life deep meaning and purpose.

Sandra Patricia (Pat) Mochizuki October 2, 1949 - April 28, 2019

Alice was a life-loving, happy person prone to laughter who brought cheer to every occasion. As her health declined she was resigned to life’s passing having lived a happy, purposeful life, secure in the knowledge of the love of her family and friends and with hope in the promise of resurrection. Alice is survived by her husband Bill, her sons Mark (Karen), Pat (Cathy) and Kelly, her granddaughter Emma, her brother Wally, and sisters Betty, Norma (Don) and Charlotte. In keeping with Alice’s wishes there will be no funeral service or celebration of life and her ashes will be interred at a later date. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Royal Inland Hospital and the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home for the kind and compassionate care they gave Alice through her final days. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Kamloops Hospice Association at www.kamloopshospice.com

They moved to Kamloops, BC in July 1964 with their beautiful daughters. For many years Martha worked as a chambermaid at the Village Hotel, but her true loves in life were her family, gardening and baking. She was a dedicated mother first and foremost and she treasured her role as Oma. She was the definition of hard work, independence and strength. Martha will be tremendously missed.

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Matryoshka Dolls

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!

Matryoshka dolls are those Russian dolls carved of wood, with each doll of smaller size stacked inside the larger. Each doll (except the innermost) separates into two pieces. The shapes are simple, but the painting can be very elaborate. Suppose you get a Matryoshka doll set that consists of four dolls. You could arrange the dolls as just the four all together. There are a number of combinations of two dolls (one in another) and another two dolls. There are some other possibilities as well. For the four-doll Matryoshka doll set, how many arrangements are there?

ANSWERS

Answer to last week’s MICE PUZZLE:

6 cats catching 24 mice in 3 days means that 1/6 as many cats (1) catches 1/6 as many mice (4) in 3 days. Now, multiply that by 9 to get that 9 cats catch 36 mice in 3 days. Since 144 is 4 times 36, it will take four times as long for them catch all 144 mice. This is 12 days.
