City will work with pro-arts centre group


The Lower North Thompson 4H Club held a fundraising event at the Westsyde Shopping Centre on Saturday, which included participation by three-year-old Victor Dichrow and a pony named Dixie. GORDON GORE/KTW READER




Kamloops council has directed city administration to support the formation of a not-for-profit community society, essentially made up of potential users, that will organize community support and potential fundraising for a proposed performing-arts centre. Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian told KTW the group will come before council next week. “I’ve said before, I feel that this is something that is missing within the menu of things we offer the citizens of Kamloops,” Christian said, falling of short of saying council has officially supported the performing-arts centre vision as presented by Ron Fawcett earlier this year. “That’s my personal opinion. But until we have a proposal before us, then you’ll have an all in favour, seven-two, eight-one, nine-nothing kind of outcome, right?” Despite early days, the approach is markedly different from the previous performing-arts-centre pitch. Christian said the city is looking at best practices in communities small and large across the country, following the failed referendum of 2015.

In Calgary, a performing-arts facility called Arts Commons was built for $102 million under a registered charity, including a mix of government funding from all levels and private-sector money. On Tuesday, City of Kamloops community and protective services director Byron McCorkell called a donation pledged by the Fawcett family in Kamloops toward the initiative “very generous.” Asked if this approach takes the financial burden off taxpayers’ backs, Christian said: “I think that we asked the taxpayers and they said they weren’t prepared to support the last proposal, so this proposal has to be different than that. “So what kind of contribution that the city would make to this at this point in time is premature and I think you’re looking at two elements of that. One is the capital cost, which is about $20 million less than the last one, rounding it out, and the other is the operating cost, who is going to run it and that kind of thing.” The city’s Community Services Committee will be responsible for liaising with the arts centre community society and for identifying the city’s next steps in advancing the proposal.

Osoyoos RCMP Sgt. Jason Bayda speaks to media about the investigation on Monday.





Thursday & Friday 9-9pm • Sunday 11-5pm


It’s still not clear what caused a fatal boat collision on Osoyoos Lake on Saturday evening that claimed the lives of a a 35-year-old man from Kamloops and a 36-year-old man from Maple Ridge. And it could take some time to determine a cause, according to Osoyoos RCMP Sgt. Jason Bayda. “It’s going to be a lengthy investigation,” he said. “This isn’t like a car accident where there’s skid marks on the road. Water is different.” The accident took place after 7 p.m. on Saturday, In addition to the two deaths, three other men were hospitalized, two in critical condition and one in stable condition. Bayda praised bystanders who hurried out into the water on boats and rescued the men. “Those three people that were saved were saved because of those people willing to step up and help,” he said. “Any time you have the public coming out to help like this we appreciate it and I’m sure those people do as well.” Osoyoos resident Rick Propp helped bring one of the men to shore. A neighbour knocked on his door, told him about the accident and asked if they could use Propp’s boat to help. “You could see debris in the water, so we went over, then the kids were waving. They were holding onto the bow of the fishing boat,” Propp said. One of the men was pulled into Propp’s boat and the other two were placed on a skiff. Propp noticed the man was

bleeding and injured, saying he seemed to be in shock. “I don’t think we realized how bad it was until we pulled them out,” he said. “They were so in shock that they didn’t realize.” The men were brought to shore on the west side of the lake near Magnolia Place and taken to hospital. The bodies of the two men who died were recovered by divers on Sunday. As for how the collision happened, RCMP have no concrete answers. “We’ve heard lots of different things and right now we’re simply just not going to speculate,” Bayda said. “We’re going to let our analysts who are the professionals look at all the evidence … By the end of it, we’ll know what happened here.” Mounties are now focusing on gathering evidence. Both of the boats, which sank following the crash, have been recovered and taken to a compound, where marine analysts will examine the watercraft. Underwater divers will continue to scan the bottom of the lake for more clues. “They will at this point take in all the evidence, gather more, and it’s really a fact-finding mission now,” Bayda said. “We’re really hoping that those that actually saw the accident or even the boats previous to the accident will call us. Anyone that has video surveillance around their house, security cameras, if you can view those, really, anything could be important to us.” Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 250-4957236.

Accused in murder dies KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The man accused of committing the only murder in the history of Logan Lake has died, months before his trial was set to begin. Gordon James Fleming, 67, who was charged with murdering an acquaintance in a Logan Lake motel room last year, died on Friday, June 7, of cancer.

David James Fast, 55, was killed in a room at the Copper Valley Motel on March 1, 2018. He was stabbed to death. The murder was the first recorded homicide in Logan Lake, a town of about 2,000, located about 45 minutes southwest of Kamloops. Fleming was arrested at the motel. Investigators said at the time that the two men were known to one another.

There are “little if any risks” associated with a biosolids-spreading project in Turtle Valley, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled on Friday, in addition to noting the company behind the project has gone further than what is required by legislation and has made efforts to work with residents in the area. The ruling, handed down by Justice Dev Dley in a packed courtroom in the Kamloops Law Courts building, effectively gives Arrow Transportation the green light to continue with a controversial City of Kamloops biosolids contract, which will see 23,000 tonnes of stockpiled treated sewage sludge delivered to the Turtle Valley Bison Ranch for reclamation of previously logged land. Following day-long submissions from Arrow and opponents during the private nuisance civil case, Dley delivered his decision. (Ordinarily, he would take time to write reasons for his decision, but Dley sad he took the unusual step of presenting immediately late in the day because delaying the decision would not be beneficial to any party.) Dley determined that the application by 30 Turtle Valley residents for an injunction against Arrow Transportation lacked evidence. He said the burden of evidence in the case was on the residents to prove a “high degree of probability of harm,” noting they fell short of proving traffic, odour and health risks. In fact, Dley said, evidence presented was “misleading,” with parts omitted. He questioned written expert medical testimony, which was called “the most important piece of evidence in the application” by Daniel McNamee, the lawyer representing the Turtle Valley residents opposed to the biosolids project. Dley noted the testimony included words like “perhaps” and “possible” when analyzing risks of the project, including to drinking water. “I have some concerns with the material I have been provided,” Dley said. “It is, to some degree, misleading. It fails to consider the steps that Arrow has taken and address concerns alleged.” McNamee presented the residents’ primary concerns: increased traffic, impacts on drinking water and odour. He detailed a “pristine” rural area, with nine trucks daily coming in and out of the area to deliver biosolids. David Jarrett, lawyer for Arrow, maintained

DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE A group gathered outside Kamloops City Hall on May 30, protesting the city’s decision to hire Arrow Transport to dispose of the city’s biosolids in Turtle Valley, about 45 minutes east of Kamloops.

the company has complied with all necessary regulations — even going beyond, with double the required setbacks from Chum Lake — and said risks were speculative. He accused protestors of moving the goal posts when raising issues of concern about the project and insisted the residents’ issue was not with the transportation company, but with the provincial Organic Matter Recycling Regulation, for which he said there is an avenue for lobbying change through local MLAs. “The concern that Arrow has is, what more can it do?” Jarrett said, arguing a courtroom is not the forum for such provincial legislative changes. “It’s a bit like whack-a-mole.” Jarrett also dismissed inference from residents that testing has not been done, noting one resident had intercepted from a lab test results anticipated by Arrow. The results apparently showed the company was in compliance, but the results were not mentioned during evidence presented by McNamee, which was of concern to Dley. “His affidavit doesn’t swear that he didn’t take any samples,” McNamee countered. Residents maintain the Organic Matter Recycling Regulation is not thorough enough when it comes to biosolids testing. Dley told the courtroom no decision would make everyone happy. At one point prior to a

break, he suggested the two parties go away and each make concessions. However, they returned without an agreement — with the parties still on opposite sides of the issue. In making his decision, Dley said he understands residents might feel betrayed by the provincial legislation and offered suggestions for the two sides to come together. Though not a court order, Dley specifically suggested monitoring of the westerly boundaries of the aquifer and, if any traces of biosolids were found from the adjacent field, the project should be “stopped immediately.” He also recommended the project be restricted to the one field on the bison ranch. In addition to denying the injunction request from the residents, Dley awarded undetermined costs to Arrow. After the decision, McNamee called the decision disappointing and could not say if further legal action is planned. Opponents had erected a blockade in Turtle Valley, which prevented Arrow trucks from accessing the bison ranch. Arrow applied for and received a court injunction that ordered the blockade removed and, last month, opponents complied with the court order. However, another group of protesters, calling themselves Secwepemc People at Sacred Fire, have since set up a blockade.

A man accused of strangling a fellow inmate to death in Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre will soon learn his fate following a two-week trial in the Kamloops Law Courts. Dylan Levi Judd was found dead in his cell in November 2014. His death was initially believed to have been self-inflicted asphyxiation, but Nathaniel Jessup, now 33, was charged with second-degree murder last year. Prosecutors believe

Dylan Levi Judd (above) was found dead in his KRCC cell in November 2014. Nathan Jessup is charged with second-degree murder.

Jessup strangled Judd with a red prisonissue sweater at some point after lights out in KRCC’s H-Unit on Nov. 9, 2014. Defence lawyers

argued Judd was mentally unstable and his death a suicide, noting the Crown didn’t demonstrate a motive. The Crown called 10 witnesses, which included correctional staff, police officers and medical professionals. Justice Sherri Donegan is expected to reach a decision some time next week. Jessup was charged with an unrelated murder on the eve of his trial. On May 24, 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-yearold 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. He has been in custody since September 2015.

Arts centre pegged at $70M From A1

The decision was made by council at a closed-door meeting on May 7 as it considered an April report from the Community and Protective Services Department that included the next steps in the arts centre proposal. A memo to council in the June 11 regular meeting agenda, which includes information from the May 7 closed-door council meeting, states: “Administration has recommended to council that the city serve as an external resource to this community society as it organizes supporters and a fundraising campaign. Additional opportunities with potential financial benefits to the project that the community society could undertake include an updated business case, advancing the design work that builds upon the current Class D estimate that

was presented by Mr. Fawcett, targeted fundraising and grant applications.” The proposed performing-arts centre was pitched to council in January by Kelson Group founder and philanthropist Ron Fawcett. He is proposing a publicly funded $70-million performing-arts centre for downtown Kamloops, in addition to between $8 million and $10 million he would donate via his purchase of the Telus annex building on St. Paul Street to provide 20,000 square feet of space for Western Canada Theatre and Kamloops Symphony Orchestra. The building would be adjacent to the city-owned parking lot at Seymour Street and Fourth Avenue, the site of the proposed performing-arts centre (and former home to the Kamloops Daily News). The 103,000-square-foot arts centre proposal is at the same loca-

tion as an arts centre proposal that was rejected by voters in a 2015 referendum by a 54-46 per cent margin. The new proposal includes three theatres, with 1,200, 450 and 75 seats. The main building (83,000 square feet) would house a larger theatre and have a symphony shell to accommodate the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, while the medium-sized theatre would be used for Western Canada Theatre productions. The estimated $70-million cost of the proposed arts centre is more than $20 million less than the rejected proposal of 2015. Other highlights include a cafe and outdoor cafe area, rehearsal halls and meeting spaces. In January, council voted unanimously to include a performingarts centre proposal as an item during strategic planning sessions.

Federal government plans plastics ban JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER

A Kamloops city councillor hopes the city continues work on banning businesses from using single-use plastic bags, following an announcement this week by the federal government to phase out single-use plastics across the country. Coun. Dale Bass said many questions remain in light of the Monday’s announcement by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, such as whether or not a federal ban would apply to all companies or only federally regulated businesses. Bass also noted it is an election year. “I would hope that we [the city] would continue along the path that we’ve started on,” Bass said, referring to Kamloops council’s intention to ban point-of-sale single-use plastic bags in the city. On Monday, the federal government

announced steps to ban single-use plastics — including bags, straws, cutlery, plates and stir sticks — as early as 2021. Trudeau said Ottawa would work with provinces and territories on standards and targets for companies that manufacture plastic products or sell items with plastic packaging, making them responsible for their plastic waste. The government said more than threemillion tonnes of plastic is tossed every year by Canadians, with about one-third of plastics used for single-use or short-lived products and packaging. Up to 15-billion plastic bags are used annually and about 57-million straws are used daily. “Canadians know first-hand the impacts of plastic pollution and are tired of seeing their beaches, parks, streets and shorelines littered with plastic waste,” Trudeau said. “We have a responsibility to work with our partners to reduce plastic pollution,

protect the environment and create jobs and grow our economy. We owe it to our kids to keep the environment clean and safe for generations to come.” Bass said she will be watching the federal rollout with interest and praised the initiative for including straws and cutlery, which she had hoped council would also have supported when she made the original motion for staff to look into the plastic bag ban. “It’ll be interesting to see,” she said. The city is consulting with those affected by plastic bag ban, with a report expected to return to council in July on feedback from local businesses and more. Bass said large and small businesses have so far been supportive of the initiative. The city is working off of a template created by Victoria, which includes some exceptions for use of plastic in areas such as dry cleaning. — with a file from Canadian Press

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” So said Nelson Mandela when he appeared in 2000 at the inaugural Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco. Much of what Mandela said nearly two decades ago is resonating this month in Canada as the nation’s lone NBA team has indeed become Canada’s team. (Yes, there will always be holdouts, especially in Western Canada, who will never cheer for a Toronto sports franchise, but they are by and large the minority.) From Tofino to Iqaluit to St. John’s, the Raptors have truly captured this nation’s attention with their remarkable run to the National Basketball Association’s championship series. The scene across Canada on Monday night, as the Raptors sought to win the title, was reminiscent of the landscape of the country in August of 2016, when villages, towns and cities turned their collectives eyes to screens of all sizes to watch the final Tragically Hip concert from Kingston. In living rooms in Kamloops, in arenas in the Lower Mainland, in fields across the Prairies and in town and city squares from Ontario to Newfoundland-Labrador, Monday night’s Toronto-Golden State game was must-watch TV that has united the young and old and all the magnificent ethnic groups that combine to create Canada. The fervor seen is akin to that which takes hold in the Great White North during the Olympics and when a Canadian NHL team comes within grasp of Lord Stanley’s Cup. Game 6 tips off on Thursday at 6 p.m. Watch and be united.

A rookie councillor finds his way around city hall


fter spending the past 25 years in Kamloops serving as your local mailman, I felt confident I had a strong grasp on how big the City of Kamloops was. I was wrong. Working in city hall and representing Kamloops as your city councillor these past eight months has truly opened my eyes to just how big our community is and what it takes to manage it. As a mail carrier, I was fortunate enough to interact with the public daily, getting to know and see the people and neighbourhoods that made this city the place I was so blessed to raise my children within. I heard and saw the issues people faced daily, whether it was the pot holes on their street, the intense winter snowfalls or a feeling of disconnect at city hall. It helped me engage with members of my community and helped me build my platform to assist in creating a stronger and more united version of Kamloops. I’m very fortunate to be working with a great and diverse team of councillors, led by Mayor Ken Christian, as well as the staff we have. Their dedication digging into data, compiling reports and answering our questions around the clock often goes unnoticed — and they are the true unsung


CITY HALL heroes of what transpires at city hall. We would not be able to proceed with a number of local projects without the hard work our city staff does to secure federal and provincial funding. We should be thankful our federal and provincial taxes are coming back to benefit our city and not going to Kelowna or Prince George, which means local taxpayers do not bear the full burden of needed projects. I am proud of the amount of events and functions that occur daily and I have tried to attend as many as possible in order to keep a pulse on the community and learn from the amazing leaders and people found within the municipality. Whether it is festivals, neighbourhood-engagement meetings or more formal functions, I’ve been able to find value and grow as a person, community member and professional

through these experiences. My feelings toward Kamloops have always been those of pride and a feeling of togetherness. While my perspective has evolved as I’ve stepped away from delivering mail and stepped into the public light as your city councillor, the fact remains the sense of passion I feel for and see in Kamloops is beyond incredible. It motivates me to serve and give back each and every day. There are few words to describe my gratitude for this great opportunity. I am truly dedicated to giving back as much as I can to a city that has given so much to me. While I’ve transitioned away from Mailman Bill and into Coun. Sarai, I hope those who know me (and those who don’t) understand I am always available to talk to — and I will always listen. I’ll always be a community member first and foremost and I am passionate about how you feel we are doing as a council and as a city. I’m deeply humbled by the experience thus far and I look forward to continue building upon this journey. Bill Sarai is a Kamloops councillor.

CYCLISTS NEED TO LEARN ALL THE RULES OF THE ROAD Editor: Here is some advice to Westsyde cyclists. As so frequently occurs, I recently came close to hitting a cyclist on Westsyde Road, near Oak Hills. The cyclist was riding his bike and dressed as if he were in the Tour de France, totally ignoring the posted signs designating the cement sidewalk on the west side of the road for pedestrians, and the paved path on the east side as a shared pathway for pedestrians and cyclists, whose access is guaranteed and advertised on signs along the route. The cyclist’s swerving forced me to crowd the centre lane and, had there been a scrape of two vehicles caused by his being on the road instead of in his lawfully designated path, he would have disappeared, oblivious to his stupidity and its effect on others. Cyclists, learn the rules. Pierce Graham Kamloops

Editor: Several weeks ago, St. John Vianney’s Justice Committee sent a letter to all the supermarkets in Kamloops. The letter identified the large amount of plastic wrap used in the stores, especially in the produce departments, and asked the managers if they had a strategy to eliminate the use of plastic and, where necessary, to use a substitute. The committee also indicated it would be happy to open a dialogue with the stores regarding the issue. Unfortunately only one store, Nature’s Fare, replied. The committee was pleased to learn the store is now using organic wrap in its produce department and continues to look at new innovations to eliminate

as much plastic as possible. The Nature’s Fare manager also stated that using organics is more expensive. Other stores did not acknowledge the letter sent to them. This suggests that most of the stores are at a loss as to how to lower the amount of plastic used, while keeping their competitive edge. All of which suggests it is time for governments to enact regulations on plastics used in supermarkets. Regulation would have the following benefits: • create a level playing field for all companies; • lower the amount of plastics being produced and, by so doing, lessen our

I SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO PAY FOR YOUR KIDS Editor: With respecy to Kamloops council supporting $10-a-day day care, I really wish someone would suggest that people be responsible for their lifestyle choices. As part of a barely middleclass couple who chose not


to have a family to be able afford the life we want, I tire of people expecting the taxpayer (me) to subsidize their choices. Neither they nor their children are special, as much as they think otherwise. Newsflash — if you can’t

afford day care, you probably can’t afford children. Kids are expensive. Just because you want something does not mean you’re entitled to it. I’d like to drive a Porsche and it’s my right to choose, but I drive a 12-year-old Subaru.

Westsyde honours for Bridges MICHAEL POTESTIO


A football team fundraiser in 1996 sticks out in Bob Bridges’ mind as the fondest memory from his storied 31-year teaching career. The longtime physical education teacher from Westsyde secondary was once witness to the fruits of his labour when more than 105 alumni showed up from two decades of his teaching career. For Bridges, it has always brought him great satisfaction to see the athletes he coached obtain great things, such as a university scholarships or a career in the CFL. Bridges was one of the first staff members at Westsyde secondary when the school was built in 1973. He recalled to KTW those first gym classes taking place on fields that were still being seeded. “The school was basically halfbuilt at that time,” he said. Bridges, 70, is now being recognized for his years of service and dedication to the high school, which is honouring him at Wednesday night’s graduation by adding his name to its Wall of Fame. Bridges, a member of the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame, first came to the city in 1970 to pitch for the Kamloops Okonots baseball team. The Tucson, Ariz., native was attending Western Washington

University at the time and returned the next two summers, with the intention of staying in Kamloops if he could find a teaching job. One of the catchers on the team was set to be the principal at the new Westsyde high school and guaranteed Bridges a job. “I took him at his word and turned down a teaching job in Arizona and came up here,” Bridges said. He coached senior boys football from 1975 to 2001 and senior girls basketball from 1982 to 2004, along with rugby and track and field. Bridges had a 523-214 record coaching basketball, leading his teams to 16 appearances in the provincial championships, winning the tournament in 1993. He was the school’s athletic director for 20 years and a longtime member of the district’s athletic council. Westsyde’s annual Wall of Fame ceremony began in 2014 during the 40th anniversary of the school, inducting notable teachers and students, such as Olympic shot-putter Dylan Armstrong. On Wednesday night during the graduation ceremony, it will be Bridges’ turn, returning to a school where he committed so many years, now staffed with some former students, like WSS principal Chris Preymak, who Bridges taught in gym class. “He definitely expected you to give your all when it came to PE class,” Preymak said. “Even if you

had never played a sport before, he didn’t care if you were good at it or not, as long as you were putting in your best effort.” Bridges’ friend and former colleague, Vic Bifano, who was also an inaugural Westsyde staff member, will present him with the honour. Bifano said when he first met Bridges, he thought he was a pompous American — something the two friends joke about that today — but they were always “on the same wavelength” when it came to students. “Bob is recognized by his caring for kids, whether it be his football players or the girls basketball team, his commitment to teaching and education and his love for our community,” Bifano said. Bridges, an accomplished baseball player, became a Canadian citizen in 1977 in order to play for the country’s national team, which he did from 1977 to 1979 and again in 1988. But education has always came first, in the past turning down Major League Baseball contracts to complete his education. Bridges retired to Tucson in 2004 to care for his parents, but couldn’t be kept away from teaching, taking up a small-town U.S.A. teaching job — something on his bucket list — in the interim. After his parents passed in 2015, he and his wife Kim decided to return to Kamloops, and Westsyde, and enjoy retirement. “It’s been an interesting journey — let’s put it that way,” he said.

Volunteers jailed for fundraiser TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER

Ensuring all children in Kamloops are properly fed is an important goal — one so crucial that several locals are willing to go to jail for the cause. Thankfully, that jail time will last only a few hours as it will be part of the annual Jail and Bail fundraiser, which will take place this Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m at Cascades Casino in Aberdeen. The event is put together through a three-way equal partnership between the United Way, School District 73 and the Kamloops Food Bank. Money raised goes to the Feeding The Future program. “It’s an initiative to feed kids 6 to 12,” said Danalee Baker, executive director with the local chapter of the United Way. “I think it’s going to be really fun.”

Jail and Bail, which has been held for about a decade, sees participants locked behind bars, with their bail set at a fundraising goal they encourage supporters to meet. This year’s “inmates” include Baker, Dale Bass, Chris Chan, Kelly Kelland, Peter Milobar, Dez Olson, Catharine Pendrel, Arjun Singh, Greg Stewart, Darryl Sydor, and Jessica Vlegenhart. The Jail and Bail event occurs alongside a breakfast drive-thru fundraiser at the same location. For a minimum donation of $10, hungry supporters can get their hands on a breakfast wrap, a coffee from Tim Hortons and some Timbits. According to Baker, the drivethru portion of the event has raised $75,000 to date, while organizers are hoping to hit a lifetime total of $600,000 from this year’s Jail and Bail. “Feeding the Future is so

important to feed kids because without food, it’s very difficult for them to play, to learn, to face life’s challenges,” Baker said. “Often times, kids have a lot of challenges in their lives. This allows them to take one worry off the table. And also their families — it’s providing their families with food, as well.” One of the programs funded by Feeding The Future is the Starfish Backpack Program, which sends backpacks of food home with students in need. “Sometimes the Starfish Backpack food is the only food the family has for the weekend,” Baker said. For those who want to help, donating money toward someone’s bail money can be done online at jailandbailkamloops. com. Breakfasts can be preordered and donations can be made online at

Mac Isle’s free mini-golf course proving popular MICHAEL POTESTIO STAFF REPORTER

There were laughs, fist pumps and a few groans during rounds of free mini-golf at McArthur Island. What’s old is new again as the City of Kamloops has revitalized the 18-hole mini-golf setup at the former McArthur Island Golf Course. The mini-course re-opened earlier this month and has attracted large numbers of people, with putters and golf balls in hand. They included the foursome of Phil and Denise Clough and Bob and Jannette Fisher, who were all smiles as they wrapped up the final hole just ahead of a bout of rain and wind. The Cloughs, from Kamloops, said they wanted something interesting to do with their friends from London, Ont., during their last day in town. They decided to try mini-golf after hearing the course had re-opened. Though it was previously a paid amenity, playing

the now city-run course is free of charge, requiring only that users supply their own putters and balls to play the unmanned course. The course was busy over the weekend as multiple groups could be found on the pitch at once. City parks manager Jeff Putnam told KTW re-opening the mini-golf course has been one of the most overwhelmingly well-received projects from the public in his 15 years working for the municipality. “People have just been saying it’s so nice to have an amenity the whole family can do, that all incomes, ages and abilities can participate in,” Putnam said, noting compliments have been pouring in from all over — social media, phone, email and in person. The city was in a unique position to be able to offer freemini golf, having been in possession of the old golf course since its former owner, Bill Bilton Sr., decided against renewing his lease in 2017. Putnam believes free mini-golf is unique to Kamloops and would be surprised to see other

municipalities offering it. “I’m not aware of any municipally run mini-golf courses,” he said. “It’s a great amenity for people visiting for sports tournaments … It’s something for their families to do, too.” The mini-golf facility had become overgrown with plants and clearing them away was one component of renovations ongoing at the west end of McArthur Island. Having budgeted $10,000 for repairs, Putnam said the city ended up using less than $1,500 in labour costs to spruce up the course. The putting surface remained in much better condition than originally thought and did not have to be replaced. As for maintaining the free course moving forward, Putnam said it will become part of the general maintenance the city conducts on McArthur Island. • The mini-course is right next to the former McArthur Island Golf Course, which is now home to an 18-hole disc golf course and trails, both of which are free to use by all residents.

The old golf course’s facelift continues MICHAEL POTESTIO


Renovations are nearly complete at the former McArthur Island Golf Course as it continues to be transformed into a multiuse area. City parks manager Jeff Putnam told KTW he expects the first phase of changes to wrap up this summer, likely in July. In January, council approved phase one of a three-phase renovation, which includes adding disc golf and a nature park to the vacant land. Disc golf baskets and tee boxes have been installed and the free mini-golf course is up and running, while crews are finishing repairs to the former golf course’s irrigation system, Putnam said. Most of the chain link fencing that lined the outer rim of the golf course has been removed, trees

have been pruned and a trail has been laid down. Split-rail fencing around the former water hazard ponds has also been added. However, some of the fencing still needs to come down and signs added to the disc golf course, Putnam said. “We still want to get it open as soon as we can, but we’re not quite there yet,” he said. Though not officially open yet, people are already using the trails and the Kamloops Disc Golf Club has been testing the new course. Club vice-president Chris Wilson said the 18-hole course is playable and the club has already hosted events on the field. “It’s so beautiful in there. It’s so nice,” Wilson said. The course is free to use and only requires users to bring their own discs. Many of the holes are located where greens stood on the former golf course, while the trail

through the nature park extends from the former fairway of the ninth hole, near the soccer fields, to the renovated mini-golf course near the former first hole. The total cost of phase one was budgeted at $198,000 — with $30,000 earmarked for the disc golf course. More work is planned, though the next phases still need to come before council for approval. Putnam said phase two calls for a new washroom facility, site furniture, more path construction and the installation of a pollinator garden, proposed for development in 2020 at a cost of $210,000. Phase three would include amenities such as new pedestrian bridges, construction of a picnic shelter and installation of a playground, utilizing logs and other natural features of the area. That phase is estimated to cost $600,000.

Kamloops Christian School Grade 9 students are learning how to install a 1,000-kilowatt grid-connected solar power system on the roof of the North Kamloops school as part of the applied design skills and technology course. From left: students Ethan Kitson and Kaylee Oyer work with Riverside Energy staffer Sean Palfenier, and students Liam Draeger and Alex Vollweiter work with Riverside Energy employee Chris Irving to fasten solar panels in place. The class offers two components, woodworking and electrical, with the goal being to offer education, skills and methods to reduce the environmental footprint. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

Blaze caused by smokers playing with a lighter MICHAEL POTESTIO


Two men accidentally caused a fire that burned in a field in between Sa-Hali sec-

ondary and nearby apartment and townhomes earlier this month.

Kamloops Fire Rescue fire investigator Kevin Cassidy told KTW the two men were smoking marijuana and admitted to playing with a lighter when they inadvertently ignited the grass on fire. “They said they tried to extinguish the fire, which was confirmed by a witness who saw it happening and saw the two guys trying to put out the fire,” said Cassidy, who described the men as young adults. Cassidy said there

were multiple patches of burnt grass in the area and it looked as though the wind picked up and blew the flames to multiple starting points. The fire started on the high school field and jumped a fence onto city property near some homes. Quick work by area residents with garden hoses and by Kamloops firefighters helped douse the flames that took hold at about 8 p.m. According to freelance photographer Nathan Ritchie, resi-

dents strung together garden hoses to fight the flames amid windy conditions until Kamloops Fire Rescue personnel arrived. Cassidy said the fire burned along an uphill slope, which aided its spread. He said the two men did not specify how they were playing with the lighter. “We spoke to them, gave them some fire prevention information,” said Cassidy, noting the RCMP was not involved.

“It was clearly an accident,” he said. The fire department is reminding the public to be extremely careful when handling smoking materials, especially as conditions are now hot and dry. Cassidy said KFR recommends smokers use a metal container or non-combustable ashtray filled with sand and water to ensure a butt is completely extinguished. “And be alert,” he said, noting fires caused by smoking materials are common.

Fire restrictions begin in region Fire bans are coming to the Kamloops Fire Centre on Wednesday, but campfires will still be permitted. The Ministry of Forests has decided to restrict category 2 and category 3 open fires, as well as some other activities and the use of certain equipment, as of noon on Wednesday, in a bid to help prevent human-caused wildfires. The prohibition will remain in effect until noon on Oct. 15 or until the order is rescinded. Anyone conducting category 2 or category 3 burns within the Kamloops Fire Centre’s jurisdiction must extinguish those fires by the June 12 deadline. Specifically, prohibited activities will include: • the burning of one or more open fires larger than one metre high by two metres wide; • stubble or grass fires of any size;

• the use of fireworks, firecrackers, sky lanterns, tiki torches (and similar kinds of torches); • the use of burning barrels and burning cages of any size or description; and • the use of binary exploding targets (pre-packaged or homemade explosives such as Tannerite, Thundershot, Gryphon, Firebird SS65, Sure Shot, or similar products). The pending prohibition does not ban campfires that are a halfmetre high by a half-metre wide (or smaller) and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. Last year, campfires were banned on July 26. In 2017, campfires were banned on July 7. In 2016, there were no campfire bans. The fire restrictions will apply to all public and private land

within the Kamloops Fire Centre, unless specified otherwise via a local government bylaw. Before lighting any fire, people should check with local government authorities to determine if any other burning restrictions are in effect. Anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of up to $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. Report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning violation by calling 1-800-663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone.

Join Ma at library for The Journey In July 2016, Wai Hung Ma completed a swimathon as he raised money for the Y Women’s Emergency Shelter., On Wednesday at 6 p.m., he will be at the downtown library, speaking about his new book, The Journey: Always Breaking Limitations. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE


A Kamloops author and motivational speaker has a new book out and will be at the downtown Kamloops Library on Wednesday. Wai Hung Ma is the subject and one of three authors of The Journey: Always Breaking Limitations. The book’s authors call it a collection of “success concepts” that follows Ma’s journey of overcoming his limitations to live a life of purpose, meaningfulness, contribution and optimism. Ma was born in Hong Kong with cerebral palsy and later developed multiple sclerosis. He is confined to a wheelchair and cannot walk or use one of his hands. His speech impediment often makes it difficult for people to understand him. He moved to Canada with his family at age 11. While the language barrier and adaptation

to Western culture was difficult to overcome, he said in his book that he felt the need to prove that he could learn the language and adapt. To do so, all he needed was a bit of help, which he

received from his teachers, later graduating high school and university. Today, Ma is an entrepreneur and professional speaker and, despite being hindered by what he calls the “twin scourg-

es,” he has developed a positive philosophy that has helped him get more out of life. “I’ll keep reaching for greater heights, to break limitations and use my story to inspire others to do the same,” Ma said in the book. The Journey is Ma’s third book, following Breaking Limitations and Motivation: Know Yourself. Researchers and co-authors Corey Sigvaldason and Kirk Baethke complement Ma’s story and inspirational messages with supporting research and theory behind the principles explored in the book. Sigvaldason is an author, speaker and trainer who has worked with Ma before, while Baethke, also a speaker,

lends communications expertise to the book. The book was released through CAP Leadership Publishing on June 3 and is available as a paperback and as an e-book. Ma has also produced a DVD, How to Become a Better Bully, in partnership with the KamloopsThompson School District and the North Kamloops Rotary Club. The DVD is targeted for youth to help them avoid becoming bullies. Ma will speak at the downtown library, at Victoria Street and Fifth Avenue, on Wednesday at 6 p.m. The event is free, but registration is recommended. To do so, call 250-372-5145 or email questions@tnrd. ca. The event will also be live-streamed on the TNRL Facebook page.

sustainability office. Cheryl Kabloona, chair of the local chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association, said electric vehicles require less maintenance than gaspowered cars and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, she said, government rebate programs are making the vehicles more affordable. “We’re trying to show people that it’s possible to live in a low carbon way,” she said.

Kabloona said cost of the technology is decreasing, with an entry-level electric vehicle listed now at about $30,000. Additionally, federal and provincial government rebates of $5,000 each decrease that price tag, as does a “turn in your junker car” program that is worth another $6,000. Kabloona said the vehicles typically cost more up front, but less is paid down the road, due to simpler

mechanical systems requiring less maintenance. She said misconceptions about electric vehicles include range anxiety, with people concerned about being stranded, with the limited charging network set up at this point. However, Kabloona said, electric vehicles are great for commuting around town, despite challenges that remain with long distances. “What you do is, you plan ahead,” she said. “There’s a website. It’s called Plug Share [], where you can see where the chargers are and figure out how far you can go, comfortably. Once you get used to it, it’s not difficult.” The June 23 event will include several speakers who will discuss electric vehicles. The day will include first-hand experience from electric vehicle owners, discussions on how to operate them and information on

rebates and dealerships selling the vehicles. Electric vehicles will be on hand, including the Chevy Bolt, Nissan Leaf, Teslas, the Hyundai Ioniq and BMW i3. Kabloona said the ease of buying an electric vehicle in Kamloops depends on the model. She said the Bolt and Leaf are “ready to sell,” while others may take time to order. She recommended a dealership in Port Moody, Westwood Honda, which specializes in reselling used electric vehicles. To attend the June 23 electric vehicle show at TRU, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., register online at Electric bikes will also be showcased, including one that will given out as a prize. Electric bikes, Kabloona said, are a good option for commuting in Kamloops. Essentially, it’s a regular bike that provides help when going up hills.

fter a 10-year hiatus, an archeology field school is being conducted in the Kamloops area. The 2019 Thompson Rivers University archeology field school is a collaborative project with the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Natural Resources Department. The field school provides an opportunity for students to learn survey, excavation and mapping techniques in Secwepemcúlecw (lands of the Secwépemc), while also visiting nearby archeology sites. The school offers six weeks of field training, including a six-credit summer field training in archeology course and a three-credit lecturebased course called plateau prehistory. The field training course gives students experience in standard archeology methods that can be applied to a range of careers and offers students the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom setting. Field courses also provide students the unique experience of understanding the process of community engagement and working with Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc in a collaborative and community-directed project. Rather than have specific research questions and conduct archeology work to test theories and formulate interpretations based on the data recovered, the 2019 field school is an example of Indigenous archeology. Indigenous archeology involves a collaborative and community-directed approach to projects and strives to make archeology more representative of, responsible to and relevant for Indigenous communities. The collaborative work between myself and Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Culture and Heritage Department archeologists Leslie LeBourdais and

Ryan Dickie began by discussing a field school location that would contribute to the cultural heritage management goals of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc. Several locations were presented to Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc chief and council, which made the decision where to conduct the archeology field work. Prior to commencing field work, there was a smudging performed by Tk’emlups knowledge keepers and and TRU students were welcomed by representatives of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc, who explained the significance of the archeology work being undertaken. Following community protocols is an important aspect of any archeology project. Protocols and collaborative projects between archeologists, universities and First Nations communities are particularly important when work is being conducted on federal lands. In the absence of a federal heritage act, protection and management of archeology and heritage resources on Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc reserve lands, for example, are conducted in accordance with the heritage conservation bylaw and the ancestral remains policy. All archeology work must also have an approved research protocol agreement between an individual and Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc. The 2019 TRU archeology field school not only gives students the opportunity to leave the classroom and dig in the dirt, it also presents the opportunity to witness and be a part of decolonizing the past.

COMING SOON — AND HERE NOW 5 BEAN EXPANDS TO NORTH SHORE A storefront on the North Shore will once again become a place to grab a cup of Joe. 5 Bean Brewbar will be replacing the former Leon John’s Deli at the corner of at the corner of Knox Street and Tranquille Road. Signage in the store’s window indicates the coffee shop — a specialty coffee shop that has one other location in Kamloops, in Sahali — will be opening soon in the space. Renovations inside the shop still appear to be ongoing. Leon John’s Deli closed in December 2018, having been in business a little more than a year at the former Mervo’s Coffee Shop location. TRANQUILLE MARKET RE-OPENS The Tranquille Market corner store at 12th Street and Tranquille Road on the North Shore has been returned to its former glory. Vikram Singh, who owns Canco Petroleum in North Kamloops, re-opened the convenience store last Friday, having leased the building earlier this month from the property owner. The store had been shuttered for years and Singh said he wanted to reopen it because it’s in a good location and fills a community need in the area. The business will sell the same items it did before and Singh said the plan is to add an even greater variety of inventory. Singh said he kept the store’s name because Tranquille Market was well known in the community. “It’s a milestone now,” Singh said. C-LOVERS COMING TO NORTH SHORE Another seafood restaurant appears to be filling the void left by the closed Capt’n Sharky’s at the corner of Sydney Avenue and Tranquille Road in North Kamloops. According to North Shore Business Improvement Association president Jeremy Heighton, the Canadian fish and chips chain C-Lovers is expected to open in the building. In an NSBIA newsletter, Heighton said the site is being renovated and C-Lovers will hopefully move into the space in the next couple of months. MORE BUBBLES IN YOUR TEA Kamloops has another destination for bubble tea. Bubble Tea and Waffle opened for business earlier this month in the Landmark building, along McGill Road and across from TRU.

Canfor’s mill in Vavenby will close in July, leaving 172 people out of work. Canfor’s plan to sell two timber licences in the Adams Lake area to Interfor requires approval from the Ministry of Forests. JESSICA WALLACE/KTW

Victoria must approve licence sale TOM FLETCHER


B.C.’s forest companies are seeing their first test of the NDP government’s requirement to approve timber licence transfers with a $60-million purchase of logging rights made available by the latest sawmill closure. Canfor’s decision to close its Vavenby sawmill includes a deal to sell two licences in the Adams Lake area to Interfor, which owns the mill at Adams Lake. Interfor has applied to the B.C. forests ministry for the approval, required under legislation passed in May. Interfor CEO Duncan Davies said the company spent $140 million modernizing Adams Lake in 2009, making it one of the most efficient mills in B.C. The companies are working with the province to maintain logging contractors and truckers in the region, as Vavenby’s closure affects 172 direct employees. “This transaction materially enhances Adams Lake’s log supply and sets the stage for its future success in much the same way the investments made 10 years ago set the stage for its success over the last decade,” Davies said. When the legislation was debated, B.C. Forests Minister Doug Donaldson warned the industry that its purpose was to reduce the concentration of Crown forest licences in B.C., adding that Indigenous community involvement in licence

transfers will be mandatory. Donaldson said the previous B.C. Liberal government’s changes in 2003 “artificially constructed an asset for companies, that being forest tenure, that they can and have traded.” He cited the timber supply transfer between Canfor and West Fraser in 2013 that saw mills close in Houston and Quesnel, as the artificially high timber cut to salvage beetle-killed pine began to wind down. Premier John Horgan has said the big players in B.C. are working with the new rules. “The ones that wanted to get out of town with a big bag of money weren’t happy about it,” he said. Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson, the previous forests minister, said the NDP government is interfering in business decisions and increased reporting, based on an as yet undefined public interest. “The processing facility operators are really going to be busy in a forest of forms and reports,” Thomson told the legislature. West Fraser announced one-week shutdowns this month at its mills in Quesnel, Williams Lake, Smithers and Fraser Lake, reducing capacity by 30-million board feet. It also cited high log cost and low prices, which have been aggravated by continued import duties imposed by the U.S. Interfor’s Adams Lake lumber mill is in Chase, west of Salmon Arm. Canfor’s Vavenby operation is farther north, near Clearwater and east of the Cariboo region, which has seen its own mill closures

We’ll show you it’s possible.

and tenure swaps. Interfor announced in late May it is extending its reduced operating days at three B.C. Interior mills — in Castlegar, Grand Forks and Adams Lake. The curtailment is expected to reduce production by 20-million board feet during June from mills with a total annual capacity of 750-million board feet. The reduction was implemented in May as Interfor joined other B.C. producers in adjusting for low lumber prices and high log costs. Canfor cited the same factors in its announcement to workers that its Vavenby mill will close in July. On the B.C. coast, Surrey-based Teal Jones Group announced on May 31 that its second-growth logging at Honeymoon Bay on Vancouver Island is shut down due to “excessive stumpage rates” charged by the B.C. government. That will soon mean lost mill time and employment at Teal Jones’ mills in Surrey, where a shortage of logs has already resulted in the loss of four weeks of run time so far in 2019. Teal Jones said in a statement it expects that when the Horgan government’s coastal revitalization plan reduces log exports, stumpage rates will be adjusted to reflect domestic milling. “However, the changes to the stumpage system to reflect this reality will not come into place until 2020,” Teal Jones said. “In the interim, the mounting losses are requiring the company to curtail the secondgrowth harvesting operations.”

City utility services supervisor Joe Luison said utility work — adding water and sewer services to a section of the road — in Brocklehurst, on Tranquille Road between Windbreak and Schreiner streets, will continue daily through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Luison said the work is the result of development in the area.

The city is responsible for providing utility services and developers are responsible for hookups. Only local traffic will only be allowed in the area and temporary bus stops have been set up as along Tranquille Road, Windbreak Street and Young Avenue (as indicated in the above map). “When in the area, take care, be patient,” Luison said. “If at all possible, detour a different route.” Meanwhile, work to repair

a water main on Pacific Way in Aberdeen has been completed. Until the job was finished on Monday night, Pacific Way’s northbound lanes across the Highway 1 overpass were closed. Meanwhile, reconstruction of West Victoria Street downtown continues, with congestion, particularly during rush hour in the morning and evening, to be expected. In Barnhartvale, work continues on Todd Road.

Ebus is looking to add more stops along routes from Kamloops. The company has applied to the Passenger Transportation Board (PTB) to service two new regions in B.C.: Salmon Arm and Prince George. In total, 14 new communities can be potentially added to the company’s coverage, including 70 Mile House, 100 Mile House, Cache Creek and Lac la Hache. Service to Prince George will be via a new route from Kamloops, heading up Highway 97 through the aforementioned communities and Hixon, Quesnel and Williams Lake, according to an Ebus BC news release. “With seven months of operations under our belt in B.C., we’re excited

to have the chance to increase connectivity for people in our current and 14 potential new communities,” the release stated. The Salmon Arm route will be an addition to the company’s existing run between Kamloops and Kelowna, providing service to Chase, Sorrento, Salmon Arm, Enderby and Armstrong. “We’re currently working on stop locations, schedules and pricing, with a goal to launch service as soon as possible after receiving approval from the Passenger Transportation Board,” the company said in the release. Passengers board and depart Ebus vehicles at Sahali Mall, where the company has an office.

Tourism agreement signed The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association and the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association have signed a memorandum of understanding. The document recommits a coordinated and collaborative approach in promoting growth and develop-

ment of tourism on the Gold Rush Trail. The memorandum of understanding more clearly defines the partnership in supporting communities and individual entrepreneurs as they develop new product and programming along the Gold Rush Trail.

City’s iron athletes own the podium MARTY HASTINGS


SUBMITTED FILE PHOTO Yvonne Timewell of Kamloops placed first in her category at Ironman 70.3 Hawaii on June 1 and qualified for the world championships.

Kamloops Triathlon Club president Joshua Laye said recent results prove the sport is alive and well in the city. “People have been doing better,” he said. “We would really love to promote triathlon in the city. Kamloops has some really strong athletes.” Yvonne Timewell clocked in at 5:07:24 to place first among 73 women in the 50- to 54-year-old category at Ironman 70.3 Hawaii, a race on June 1 that included a 1.93-kilometre swim, 90.1-kilometre bike ride and 21.1-kilometre run. She placed 11th overall among 459 women, 76th overall among 1,492 competitors and qualified for the Ironman World Championships, which will be held in Hawaii on Oct. 12. Five Kamloops athletes posted

top-three times in their divisions at the Oliver Half Iron, an event on June 2 that included a two-kilometre swim, 89-kilometre bike ride and 21-kilometre run. Kaileen McCulloch posted a time of 4:42:50 to place first overall among 105 women and first in the 25- to 29-year-old female division. Vincenzo Cavaliere (5:28:09) and Martine Cyr (5:47:11) won gold in the men’s 55- to 59-year-old and women’s 50- to 59-year-old categories, respectively.

Melissa Lowenberg (5:11:15) earned silver in the female 45- to 49-year-old division and placed fourth overall among women. Marianne Butcher (5:50:42) placed second in the women’s 50to 54-year-old category. Christopher Orr (5:18:37), Periklis Vitoratos (6:38:08) and Mark Faubert (6:40:27) also reached the finish line in Oliver. Kate Stebbings and Brad Batter earned top-10 finishes in their respective divisions in the Ironman 70.3 Victoria on June 2. Stebbings recorded a time of 5:21:15 to place second in the female 55- to 59-year-old division. Batter was ninth in the men’s 55- to 59-year-old category, with a time of 5:04:19.

Toronto mayor backs Raps fans PAOLA LORIGGIO


Toronto’s mayor is defending his city’s basketball fans, saying cheers from Raptors supporters when a star Golden State Warriors player got injured in Monday’s nail-biter playoff game are being “overstated.’’ Large sections of Raptors fans at the Scotiabank Arena initially cheered when Kevin Durant went down clutching his Achilles tendon, prompting several Toronto players to wave their hands to get the crowd to stop. Many in the stands soon started clapping instead and muted “K-D’’ chants could be heard as Durant was helped off the court in the second quarter. The incident drew

criticism from some Golden State players and observers, including many on social media. But Toronto Mayor John Tory stressed Tuesday that while any crowd may contain some who react the wrong way, the “vast majority’’ of people at Monday’s NBA Finals game in Toronto acted like good sports fans. “I was in the arena and it happened right at the end of a play and people were cheering at the end of the play but very quickly after that [Durant] got a very warm round of applause as he was taken on to the dressing

room — as he should, he’s a superstar, and nobody wants to see him hurt,’’ Tory said. At least one Toronto fan set out to salvage Raptor Nation’s reputation following the incident by launching an online fundraiser for the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation, which helps at-risk youth. “We’re sorry that some fans of Raptor Nation at the Scotiabank arena, Jurassic Park, and in some bars/restaurants showing the game, displayed an ugly side of fandom when they cheered on the injury of Kevin Durant,’’ says

the fundraiser on GoFundMe. “This isn’t cool. This isn’t right. This isn’t what I expect from fellow Canadians.’’ The fundraiser, which aims to collect $50,000, received roughly $250 in its first hours. Golden State’s Stephen Curry, who lived in Toronto when his father played for the Raptors from 1999 to 2002, said Monday that the cheers left him “confused.’’ “It’s not my experience with the people of this city,’’ said Curry, whose wife, Ayesha Curry, grew up in nearby Markham, Ont. The Warriors eked out a victory Monday, winning 106-105 in Game 5 of the bestof-seven Finals. Game 6 of the series goes Thursday in Oakland.

Regular-season champs MARTY HASTINGS


The path to the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League title will run through the Tournament Capital, as the Kamloops Venom have locked up the No. 1-seed and homefloor advantage for the final. Kamloops (8-2) sits atop league standings and cannot be caught by either the South Okanagan Flames of Penticton or Vernon Tigers. The Flames (4-6-1) and Tigers (2-7-1) will clash in a best-ofthree semifinal series, with the winner advancing to the best-offive championship series. Strong defence has been key to the Venom’s success this season. Kamloops has allowed 88 goals this season, 38 fewer than the Tigers and 59 fewer than the Flames. “It’s just buy-in by everyone,” Venom head coach Liam Hagerty told KTW. “Everyone pays attention when we are working on our systems. Our vets have really led, with Ryan Wightman and Jay Fogarty back there.” There is no love lost between the league’s three teams. “There is some bad blood

out there,” Hagerty said. “Our offensive guys play against their defensive guys all the time and vice versa . It starts getting chippier and chippier. “It’s definitely boiled over a few times in the last few weeks, but overall, we’ve done a good job of keeping our discipline.” Vernon, which knocked off visiting Kamloops 10-6 on Saturday, will host a rematch on Wednesday. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Kal-Tire-Place. “We were missing about seven of our regulars,” Hagerty said, noting high school graduation ceremonies affected the lineup. “We had a good game, but their goalie played really well and our defence kind of faltered, with some new guys in the lineup. That’s the way she goes sometimes.” Kamloops has four regularseason games remaining and will play next at home on Saturday, when South Okanagan comes to town. Game time is

slated for 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Arena. The TOJLL champion will advance to play the winner of the B.C. Tier 1 Junior Lacrosse League in the provincial final, with a format still to be determined. SENIOR SNAKES The Kamloops Rattlers are aiming to avoid finishing last in Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League regular-season standings. With two games remaining on their schedule, the Rattlers are tied with the Vernon Tigers in the basement with matching 1-5 records. The Armstrong Shamrocks, who at 5-1 are tied with the Kelowna Raiders atop league standings, knocked off hometown Kamloops 14-3 last Friday at Memorial Arena. Ben Creasser, Mark Jurista and Liam Hagerty had goals for the Snakes, who started Stu Ford between the pipes. Ethan Milobar was in net for the third period. Vernon will play host to Kamloops on Friday. The Rattlers will finish their regular-season schedule against Kelowna in Kamloops on June 21.

HAPPY Father’s



Make his first Father’s Day special


ads are often the first heroes in their children’s lives. Dads chase away ghosts in the closet, let their daughters dance on their toes and teach their sons how to win the heart of their first crush. The first Father’s Day a new dad spends with his growing family can be quite memorable, as celebrating one’s fatherhood for the first time is a unique and special time. Spouses and other family members can go the extra mile to make this year that much more special for firsttime fathers: • Let dad sleep in: Chances are dad is enamoured with his little bundle of joy, but it’s well known that being a new father often means sacrificing sleep time — especially for the first several months to a year of that child’s life. Enlist the help of a family member who can be on baby watch while dad

gets to sleep in on the weekend of his big day. With some extra sleep, dad can enjoy Father’s Day that much more. • Create a first-year memory book: Take the time to put together a scrapbook of the photos and moments baby and dad have already spent together. So much focus is often placed on a new baby and his or her mother that dad may be left playing sec-

ond fiddle. Make it clear fathers are also key to their children’s development and happiness. • Make a baby keepsake: Use washable ink so baby can sign a Father’s Day card with a hand or footprint. The tradition can be repeated year after year until the child is old enough to write. • Go overboard on gifts: The idea isn’t to buy dad’s love, but his first Father’s Day is a truly unique time. On behalf of his firstborn, purchase a few different gifts — those items that he has been interested in buying, but has resisted in favour of saving money for new onesies and burp cloths. Or invest in one special event gift, such as tickets to a game to see his favourite team or a concert to catch a favourite band. • Boost his ego: Get matching T-shirts for baby and dad with cute memes and sayings, such as “Couch Potato” and “Tater Tot.”



Uncle Chris the Clown is a familiar face at the Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer, which will take place this Sunday at the BC Wildlife Park in east Kamloops. Registration opens at 8 a.m., with the five-kilometre walk/run beginning at 9:30 a.m., followed by a pancake breakfast, prizes and entertainment. Registration includes free admission to the BC Wildlife Park for the day.

Here’s how you can keep Luv’n the Loops


ourism Kamloops continues its monthly Luv’n the Loops campaign with tour host Jennifer Friend. Luv’n the Loops is a program designed to empower residents to become local ambassadors through monthly excursions. The program’s goal is to ensure every resident of Kamloops can easily share three activities to do in the city — whether they are asked by a visiting family member or through a random encounter with a tourist. The monthly tours to showcase what is happening in Kamloops are free to all participants. Those wishing to take part can tell Tourism Kamloops why they should be on the next bus by going online to https://www. For those who do not get on the bus for the monthly tours, there will be coupons for Kamloops residents to partici-

pate in the four weeks following each tour. The innaugural tour took place on March 21 and took locals to four downtown

addresses. Subsequent tours have included visits to eclectic shops and fly-fishing lessons. “It’s days like today that I



am so very grateful for what Kamloops has to offer,” Tourism Kamloops’ Monica Dickinson said, following the first tour. “To share what we do daily

at Tourism Kamloops with our Kamloops residents is such an honour and a tonne of fun. We know personal recommendations are a powerful marketing tool when inspiring travel planning and now engaging our Kamloops residents to build tourism ambassadorship at the local level allows them to share in the work of Tourism Kamloops to build credibility and connection to our city.” When asked to cite the best part of the first tour, participant Ruth Lidster replied: “I wouldn’t have thought about the murals, but I will now. I will treasure that mural map for the future. When I go to other cities, I do walking tours like this, but have never thought about doing one here.” Luv’n the Loops tours will continue each month for the next year. Custom itineraries will bring residents to all corners of Kamloops and will welcome all ages and abilities. Tour details are always a surprise until the group boards the buses.

ast year was a record-setting run for the Kamloops Heritage Railway’s 2141 Spirit of Kamloops steam train — even with the wildfire-fuelled smoky summer. While a regular summer of runs of the train would see about 100 riders every time the train crosses the South Thompson River, with Billy Miner’s gang in pursuit, last summer saw an average of 170 passengers in the 220-seat capacity Spirit of Kamloops. Jordan Popadynetz, the heritage railway’s outgoing manager of events and experiences, said more than 4,000 people rode the rails during the summer’s thrice-weekly departures between July 1 and Sept. 14. And many more climbed aboard for the railway’s ever-popular Ghost

Train during the Halloween season and Christmas Train in December. The key to the passenger increase, Popadynetz said, is increased efforts in getting the word out about the 2141. “This gem is right here in our own backyard and it’s kind of our little secret,” he said. “Let’s get it out there. So we worked really closely with Tourism Kamloops, more than we had been. We are a premier attraction in the city and we have the only operating steam engine of its kind in the world.” “The majority [of riders] are still local — Kamloops and around B.C.,” he said. “But had a big increase in people from the Okanagan Valley, the Island and the Vancouver area.” To find out what is new with the old 2141 this year, go online to

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

JUNE 12 - JUNE 18, 2019 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 You are doling out tons of advice lately, and it suits you, Libra. Others want to know your opinion on many different things, and you are ready and willing to offer it to them.

Put a strong face on if upsetting news comes your way, Cancer. You’re tough enough to get through it, and you may need to take a leadership role.

Start sorting through things, Aries. You have many irons in the fire and not much time to get things done. You might have to call in a backup team to help out.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Relationships take work, Taurus. You have to put in the effort if you want to see yours blossom to its full potential. Schedule some time to spend with your sweetheart.


- Oct 24/Nov 22 “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Why not turn it into lemon meringue pie instead, Scorpio? Really put a positive spin on the situation, and you’ll feel better.

Leo, don’t throw in the towel when things do not go your way. Simply find another work-around or tactic that may prove a path to success. Keep trying.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

Gemini, everyone at work needs to pitch in to get a job done. If you feel like you are putting in more of the effort than others, you may need to speak up.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

A few things are coming up that will be completely out of your control, Virgo. Letting go of the reins can be good for you once in a while. And you may learn a thing or two.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 After a bumpy start, the week will smooth out quite nicely and can prove very enjoyable for you, Capricorn. Invite some friends over or go out for happy hour.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 It is time to put yourself first, Aquarius, even though that’s not always your style. Find some interests and let work slide for a little while so you can recharge.


Investigate some travel options that can get you away for a little bit, Sagittarius. A change of scenery can do you good, and you will feel reinvigorated after your trip.

Harold Elmer Atkinson

Harold was born on December 21, 1922 in New Westminster, BC and passed away on May 19, 2019 at the age of 96 of natural causes in Kamloops, BC. Predeceased by his wife Ruth (2005), his brother Ron (1998), his father George (1977), his mother Gertrude (1945) and many beloved relatives and friends. Survived by children Carolyn (John) Gill, John (Bonnie) Atkinson, George (Teresa) Atkinson, Louise (Dave) Danskin. grandchildren Suzanne, Samantha, Michael, Sandra, Leslie, Laura, Amanda, Georgia, Deanna and Jenny and eight great-grandchildren.

He loved the outdoors and with his family camped, hiked and skied. Memorable destinations included Spruce Lake, Expo 67, Maui, Japan, Mystery Trips, any place where there were singable, danceable songs and particularly his children’s homes. Upon retirement he and Ruth moved to Salt Spring Island and plunged into island life. There, he loved golf and singing with the Salt Spring Island Choir. Moving to Kamloops 13 years later he devoted himself entirely to caring for Ruth. In the past decade his real joy was watching his many offspring grow and learn. Frequent calls, photos and visits by family and friends sustained him. To the end, he was involved and interested in what they were doing, smiling as he looked at real time pictures of them. He was the first to say that he had a wonderful life. Special thanks to the caring staff of Chartwell Kamloops and Royal Inland Hospital.

OTHERS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE By Joanetta Hendel, Indianapolis, Indiana

Others who have gone before Hold up my trembling hand. They comfort me in the blind despair I cannot understand. They suffer with me when I hurt, Weep with me in my pain, Remind me that we are not lost ... Though I must now remain. Those who’ve gone before me, Hear me when I cry. Sing softly with me soothing chords Of unsung lullabies. Mourn anniversaries never marked, A future I cannot keep. They gently kiss the pain away, And love my heart to sleep. The ones who’ve gone before me Hold me in my dreams. They gently stroke my furrowed brow, And calm my silent screams. They love me in my heartache, Wait quietly nearby., Hold patiently, one to another Till I join them by and by.

WEDNESDAY, June 12, 2019

OBITUARIES & IN MEMORIAM Kevin Allan Johnston Kevin Allan Johnston passed away on June 4, 2019. Despite many challenges during the last three years of cancer treatment, he was positive and grateful for the time and the efforts of those that cared for him. Family and friends were always the essential heartbeat of his life and he was so well-supported by them right to the end. Kevin was, to the core, a good man who “walked the walk” and looked for opportunities to assist and build up those around him. He connected with so many because of that constant, genuine care. Kevin was born and raised in Barrie, Ontario (1962), rocking high school and keeping busy with many sports, clubs and jobs. He came to BC to study forestry at U.B.C. and play hockey for the Thunderbirds. He met a girl - Jane - at a forestry dance and they married in 1987, honeymooning in a remote forestry camp in Northern BC. After completing university, they lived for a short while at Douglas Lake Ranch before settling in Kamloops. He worked in a number of forestry jobs in the area, starting with private timber management, but spending most of his career in roles within the district and regional forestry offices. Kevin took enormous pleasure and pride in being a father to his two sons Trent and Ryan and he cheered them on in everything they did. Many of our great friendships were forged inside those arenas where we spent so much time. He enjoyed many sports, but focused his time on the ones he could do as a family, slow-pitch and skiing. Kevin volunteered for a number of causes, but coaching hockey was his passion.

Judith Hammond (née Grant)

September 27, 1932 - May 23, 2019 Jude rode off into the sunset on May 23, 2019. Judy was born in Spruce Home, Saskatchewan spending the majority of her life in the Kamloops area. She married Don Hammond in 1956 and they had three children. While raising their family, they purchased, developed and sold several properties. Judy had a strong work ethic. “You can’t quit until the job is done”. Her determination and dedication paid off at the age of 52 , they were able to purchase their dream property in Sullivan Valley. Being raw land, they had a massive undertaking ahead of them. Don had serious health issues therefore Judy had to work twice as hard to fulfill their every wish. She was happiest riding her horse with her dog or chasing cattle on the open range. She was always welcoming, good natured, strong willed, voice of reason, therapist, referee, our rock. Her love for all animals was only surpassed by the love of her family. Thankfully, she enjoyed the ranch for 34 years, right up until she left us. Judy’s memory will live on through her daughters Jodie (Ian) and Shelley, five granchildren, one great-granchild, sister Lou Calder and numerous nieces and nephews. Judy was predeceased by her parents Frank and Sarah Grant, her son Rand in 1988. 1998 brought more tragedy when she lost her husband Don and her brother Bob. She remained positive. When leaving, she simply said “Cheer-i-o”. She will be forever missed and loved. There will be a celebration of life at a later date.

He coached both his sons from those early days of puck chasing to skilled teenagehood. Even after his own children graduated to men’s hockey, Kevin continued volunteering and mentoring with Kamloops Minor Hockey and the T.R.U. Hockey program, taking a great interest in all the varied young athletes he worked with. Kevin was always a fantastic life partner and best friend to Jane and they enjoyed exploring and laughing, making some epic road trips, camping adventures and travel memories together. Kevin’s closest family includes Jane, his sons Trent (Megan) and Ryan (Brynn), his siblings Heather (Brad), Greg (Laurie) and Patti (John), his parents Don and Norma and parents-in-law Mike and Trudy. Thank you for all the kind, heartfelt thoughts and messages you have shared with us. His passing will leave an unfillable hole in many of our lives, but his actions and love will live on in us. A special thank you to the amazing nurses and doctors who work in the Kamloops Cancer Ward and to those of you who have donated to cancer research. Kevin benefited from some great recent treatments developed from that research. A Celebration of Life will be announced and held at a later date.

Thank You Emma Lizzi

January 3, 1942 – March 21, 2019

June 3, 1925 – May 13, 2019

June slipped away quietly on May 13, 2019 at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. She was predeceased by her husband Arnold (Moon) Monsos (1980) and her eldest son Rick (2003). June is survived by her children Penny Holt, Keith Monsos (Claire), Lynette Monsos, her grandchildren Andrea Holt (Jeff), Amanda Holt and Becky Holt (Martin), Kimberly (Jake) Vansickle, Jenna Monsos, Christopher and Shelden Ladoski, and her great-grandchildren Cooper Perry, Gavin, Ray and Jessie Vansickle, Paisley and Addison Kalack. She is also survived by her three sisters Mary Dickie, Gloria McClaren and Virginia Ambler. June was raised on Maiden Creek Ranch with her eight sisters and one brother. June worked hard on the ranch doing both indoor and outdoor chores. She attended the one-room school that was down the road from her house. She loved riding horses, singing and playing her guitar. She married Arnold (Moon) Monsos in 1952 and they lived in Clinton where she worked and raised her children. After retirement, June golfed, curled, cross-country skied and enjoyed walking. In 2014, June moved to Kamloops and into Chartwell Kamloops Retirement Residence where she spent her final years. She enjoyed the social interaction and entertainment offered and especially enjoyed the dances. Special thanks to the caring staff of Chartwell Kamloops and the medical staff at Royal Inland Hospital. A Memorial Service will be held in Clinton, BC on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 2:00 pm in the Community Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Vancouver Children’s Hospital would be greatly appreciated.


When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill When funds are low and debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit. With the most graceful of hearts our entire family wishes to express our gratitude to everyone who showed us all so much love, compassion and true friendship on the loss of our mom and wife Emma Lizzi. For all you have done – flowers, meals, prayers and memorial donations – we know mom would have been so overwhelmed and thankful for each and everyone of your acts of kindness. We miss her terribly and thank you all for playing such as special part in all our lives.

Blessing and Love to All.

June Fern Monsos

Never Quit

Joseph (Joe) Edward Long Joseph (Joe) Edward Long of Kamloops, BC passed away peacefully on June 2, 2019 with his family by his side at the age of 82. Born in Battleford, SK, he was the son of the late Joseph Augustine and Doris (Cave). Joe was passionate about golfing and was always happy to be out on the green. He also had a love of hockey and would often be found yelling at the referees on the TV during playoff season. Joe is survived by his wife Kathleen and his children Garth (Lisa) James, Dwayne, Perry (Anna), Kelly (Lisa), and Charlene (Rene). He treasured the moments with his grandchildren especially the time he was able to spend with Bella and Kaylea. Special thanks to all of the staff at Royal Inland Hospital 5-South for their care and support. At Joe’s request there will be no service. The family has asked that any donations be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, 311 Columbia St., Kamloops, BC V2C 2T1.

Success is failure turned inside out – The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – It’s when things seem worst that You must not quit!

The Ship by Henry Van Dyke

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is on object of beauty & strength & I stand & watch her, until at length, she is only a speck of white cloud just wheret he seas & sky meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side exclaims, “There, she’s gone!” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as she was when she left my side & just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone, there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout “There she comes!”.

In Loving Memory of

Kathy Adamo December 27, 1962 – June 12, 2009


From Heaven

by Charles L. Mashburn I found a penny today, Just laying on the ground But it’s not just a penny, This little coin I’ve found.

10 Year Anniversary Broken chain We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

“Found” pennies come from heaven, That’s what my Grandpa told me He said angels toss them down; Oh, how I loved that story. He said when an angel misses you, They toss a penny down

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God call us one by one, the chain will link again. Love you always your family

Sometimes just to cheer you up, Make a smile out of your frown So don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue It may be a penny from heaven That an angel tossed to you.

Celebrating a community of leaders


here’s no doubt about it — Kamloops is a community of leaders. From the sports fields to the boardrooms to the front lines of countless community events, it’s the spirit of Kamloops’ leaders that makes our causes succeed and our community shine. There are several ways to recognize excellence in Kamloops all year round. For businesses, there’s the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards in October or the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of Central Interior’s Keystone Awards in February. For individuals, the City of Kamloops has several honours, such as the Exemplary Service Awards it hands out every spring, along with rarer honours, including the Freedom of the City and the Pioneer Spirit Awards. The sports scene is well supported with awards from many associations, including the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony held in May, while the arts scene celebrates its own

at the Mayor’s Gala for the Arts each January. Despite all these wonderful awards, we did see a gap that needed filling – a program to recognize people who demonstrate leadership behind the scenes. That’s what prompted us to create the Kamloops This Week Community Leader Awards and to look among our many entrants for winners that haven’t yet been recognized for their work. That was also the thinking behind the categories we created, such as the Courage Award and the Mentor Award. We wanted to ensure people who demonstrate leadership behind the scenes, whose effect is felt as much as it is seen, would be given the chance to shine. That said, with all those other honours out there, we weren’t quite sure what kind of response to expect when we put out our call for nominations. To be candid, it did start out slow. But sure enough, by the time nominations closed, we had dozens of wonderful applications and a tough task for our judging committee, composed of our promotions co-ordina-

tor, Tara Holmes, our editor, Christopher Foulds, our advertising manager, Ray Jolicoeur, myself and Karen Watt of Excel Personnel Inc., our title sponsor (and also a member of KTW’s new Community Advisory Board). Some people were nominated by multiple individuals. One of our winners you’ll read about in these pages was nominated by eight different people for his award, which is a testament to the inspiration of his story. And that’s the other criteria we kept in mind when selecting our inaugural winners — inspiring people with inspiring stories. It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be able to tell these stories in these pages and we’re confident you’ll find them as inspiring as we did. When you’re finished, we think you’ll feel even better about the community you call home. In our business, great ideas like this don’t come to life without the support of community-minded advertisers. We’re so pleased that seven local businesses stepped forward right away to say “yes” to this initiative to make it happen. Our

Julie Dormer is the recipient of the Volunteer Award in the inaugural KTW Community Leader Awards. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

For Dormer, volunteering is a chance to have fun, meet people was not the only place “toKamloops benefit from Julie’s presence.



omeone needs to put a lot of volunteer hours into the community to get noticed for the KTW Community Leader Awards Volunteer category. That is something this year’s recipient, Julie Dormer, has definitely done. According to nominator Chris Ponti, Dormer has an extensive list of volunteer work that includes being an executive member of Advocates for School District 73, president of Women in Mining’s south central chapter, communications manager of the Valleyview Community Association and executive member and media contact for Marion Schilling elementary’s parent advisory council. “She’s amazing,” Ponti said. “And I volunteer a lot, too, so when you have someone like that who helps out so much, you appreciate them.” For Dormer, volunteering just comes naturally. “Growing up with it, my dad was a huge volunteer and he used to drag us to everything,” she said.

During four years in Alberta, she volunteered for Crime Stoppers, as well as some town events.

— CHRIS PONTI, nominator

Volunteering rarely feels like work for Dormer, who considers events like Rotary dinners she helps prepare as her fun times. “My mom will watch my daughter and then I get to go play,” Dormer said. “So to me, it’s more fun than anything — and then you meet a lot of really good people.” Dormer credited her time-management abilities in being able to successfully juggle so many projects.

The fact that she works from home also allows her to adjust her schedule accordingly. Because so much of her volunteer work involves activities she enjoys, Dormer has a hard time thinking she is deserving of the recognition that comes with this award. “I’m still kind of shocked because there’s always someone out there that does more,” she said. “The fact that he [Chris Ponti] said that he wanted to nominate me meant so much to me, that a peer of mine would want to recognize me, and especially coming from someone like him, who volunteers so much,” Dormer said. “And so for him to say that, it meant an awful lot. I was really moved by it.” Dormer encourages others to reach out and get involved in their community as a volunteer. Aside from doing a good deed, Dormer said, volunteering is a great way to meet people. “You never know what opportunity you’ll get and you never know who you’ll get to meet,” she said. “So why not give up some time and do something cool?”

Small the mentor will keep paying it forward Henry is someone who “falls into several categories




enry Small has been a force of inspiration for both musicians and music events in Kamloops. He helped create Music In The Park more than 25 years ago and has worked with and encouraged many local musicians over the years. That’s why Tara Holmes nominated Small in the Mentor category of the KTW Community Leader Awards. “The reason I feel Henry is a natural fit for the Mentor Award is he has taken so many young, up-and-coming musicians under his wing and given them a platform to grow and get a name for themselves,” Holmes said. For Small, it’s a matter of paying it forward. “Mentoring is just passing it along, to me,” he said. “And I never thought of it as mentoring. I think that I’ve been really lucky to have just a little bit of a different life experience than most people. “So, musically, and philosophy-wise and stuff, it just comes out of you to guide and say, ‘Hey, I’ve been here before.’ “And, you know, if they pay attention, they pay attention — and a lot of people along the way have. So that’s kind of cool.” Small’s approach to mentoring has largely been to find a balance between encouragement and being grounded. “You’ve got to aim high because, chances are, you’re going to end up somewhere in the middle, right?” he said. “So you don’t fault people. You just try to support as much as you can.” Small believes those determined to reach a goal will find a way to succeed, regardless of the obstacles in their way. “You can go back to the old blues guys,

where they built guitars out of shovels or cigar boxes or whatever,” Small said. “I think that still stands.” He said being named the recipient of the Mentor Award has been a humbling experience. “It’s sort of, for me, you don’t feel comfortable with it,” he said. “You don’t feel like you really did anything more than what you would have done anyway.” Small said he gets just as much out of his work as a mentor as do the musicians with whom he works. “You see people full of hope, full of energy,” he said. “They’re not jaded and bitter, like I might be, to some degree. And so it’s kind of like, in a way, vampirish. Because you feed off of that. We feed off of that, whereas maybe I’d be taking a nap — I don’t know.”

Herman believes in giving back to the community Bryce is, and has been, dedicated and “committed to supporting every initiative




ryce Herman is a tireless volunteer who has kept himself involved in a flurry of local projects over the years. It is that dedication to community that has led to Herman being the recipient of this year’s Community Leader Award in the Community Builder category. “I decided to nominate him because he does so much in the city and has for many, many, many years,” said Lisa Fuller. “He’s always looking to advance our community and businesses. I think that’s really important to recognize.” With involvement in projects such Rotary Ribfest, Pit Stop, food drives, the Kamloops Ambassador program and various non-profit organizations, Kamloopsians are almost sure to encounter Herman somewhere in the community. And those in the Kamloops region have long known him as the voice of the Y Dream Home Lottery. “I stay very busy,” Herman said. “I mean, I was born and raised here, so for me, Kamloops has always been Bryce Herman is the recipient of the Community Builder Award in the inaugural KTW Community Leader Awards.

home. And I’ve always been a real strong believer in giving back to the community. “And it allowed me to, you know, make my livelihood out of it.” With all the community involvement behind him, Herman said continuing to volunteer is sometimes as easy as waiting for the phone to ring. “After a while, it gets to be one of those things — when there’s an event going on and the phone rings, and it’s like,’Geez, you know, Bryce, would you consider taking this on?’” he said. Herman conceded there are times when he looks behind him to see if there are more youthful volunteers coming up the ranks. But he is quick to add that he loves the volunteer work and being involved in the community, including his work in mentorship. Herman has been a part of Networking 411 at Thompson Rivers University, which he described as being like speeddating, only with face-to-face meetings between students and mentors.

He noted instructors at the university will sometimes steer students in his direction for mentorship opportunities. “So currently, I’ve got a number of students and I’ve also got some business people that I’m mentoring,” he said. Though he’s often approached directly and asked to be a mentor, Herman also pointed to situations in which the mentorship has simply evolved out of an existing relationship with someone. “I think those ones are probably even better than when there’s somebody that just arbitrarily says, ‘We’ve got six mentors. You’re in tourism. Here’s the following ones. What do you think?’” he said. While Herman said he is honoured to receive the Community Builder Award, he said his work is never about the recognition. “It’s one of those things where I don’t think you do any of them for the recognition,” Herman said. “That’s never been the case. “And, so, to be recognized is a huge honour. It really is. I don’t take it lightly.”

It is an honour to recognize Bryce Herman with the Community Builder Award.

It is the dedication of people like Bryce that help make Kamloops such a strong and giving community.

Chris Brochu is the recipient of the Courage Award in the inaugural KTW Community Leader Awards.

Brochu’s life was saved — now he is focused on helping others TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER


ost people don’t follow up a diagnosis of stage 4 metastatic melanoma with a 240-kilometre fundraising bicycle journey — but most people aren’t Chris Brochu. Gerry Erickson, who nominated Brochu for the Community Leader Award for Courage, noted Brochu had a five per cent chance of survival after being diagnosed. “He was riddled with tumours and dangerous amounts of fluid were being drained from his chest,” Erickson said. “He never gave up.” Brochu was initially diagnosed in 2009 after having a mole removed from his back. Though no other cancers were found at the time, and the skin around the mole was removed as a precaution, the cancer returned in 2015. After finding himself short of breath during a hike, Brochu visited his doctor and was sent immediately to emergency, where the fluids that had been compressing his lung were removed. The tests that followed revealed the stage 4 melanoma diagnosis.

has grabbed life and shaken “itChris by the tail. His mission, his passion, is to assist others to achieve their full potential.

— GERRY ERICKSON, nominator

“I’m 33 years old,” Brochu said. “Those are tough words to hear when you’re 33, when you’re in the prime of your life.” His initial treatment included oral chemotherapy, which led to a temporary improvement in his condition. It was at this time that he started developing the first Strides for Melanoma awareness walk in Kamloops. Unfortunately, after the event in September 2015, his health took a turn for the worse. “The cancer started coming back and came back full on, even more than it was when I first got diagnosed,” he said. With no further traditional treatment options available, Brochu learned of immunotherapy as an option.

While the cost of the new type of treatment was prohibitive, there was a clinical trial in Alberta and Brochu was invited to participate. “I went on to this immunotherapy, which is a brand new treatment. There’s 1,000 people in North America on this treatment,” Brochu said. “And it saved my life.” Brochu decided to participate in the Ride to Conquer Cancer a few months later. “I thought, ‘You know what, I got very lucky with this. I got very, very fortunate,’” he said. “I’d like to see this not be a lucky thing, I want for this to be the standardized treatment for people that are going through this. I don’t want this to be a luck thing or to be on a clinical trial or study. So I decided to sign up for the British Columbia Ride to Conquer Cancer.” He’s also opened his own business, MPowerful, where he is a wellness and fitness coach, helping people live healthier lives through fitness. As for his KTW Community Leader Award? “I’ve never, ever had an award before for anything, never really gotten an award or an appreciation in this way,” he said. “So I think it’s really cool. I’m humbled, that’s for sure. Definitely.”

Bhavana Deevanapalli is the recipient of the Youth Volunteer Award in the inaugural KTW Community Leader Awards. TODD SULLIVAN/KTW

Deevanapalli knows volunteering ties a community together TODD SULLIVAN STAFF REPORTER


ttending school to become a physician’s assistant is plenty of work, but that hasn’t stopped Bhavana Deevanapalli from filling her schedule with volunteer opportunities. According to Edith Farrell, who nominated Deevanapalli in the Youth Volunteer category of the Community Leader Awards, the young woman has given her time to organizations like Royal Inland Hospital, Big Little Science Centre, Kamloops Immigrant Services, the Gleaning Abundance Program and Pit Stop Outreach Program. “She’s been volunteering quite a bit in different organizations just to see what’s needed out there,” Farrell said. For Deevanapalli, who came to Kamloops from India four years ago, volunteering was an idea that was entirely new to her. And she took to it quickly. “I had lots of free time and I heard of this new thing called volunteering,” she said. Deevanapalli started volunteering at the Big Little Science

been volunteering quite a bit “inShe’s different organizations, just to see what’s needed out there.” — EDITH FARRELL, nominator

Centre and found she enjoyed the experience so much that she started to expand the number of organizations with whom she was working. It proved to be a great way to learn about her community while making contacts outside of university. “I’m really passionate about helping people and it was really nice meeting new people, getting to know their stories,” she said. Deevanapalli plans to remain in Kamloops after finishing her education, which means she is investing her time in the community she is planning to call home.

Deevanapalli also credits volunteering as a means of expanding her own pool of knowledge, pointing to experiences with the Gleaning Abundance Program and Kamloops Immigrant Services as being educational. “It’s taught me how to be sensitive and have patience,” she said. “And, as I say, meeting people is one of my things, and talking to people. Connections are very important.” She encourages everyone to get out and spend some time volunteering because it’s what draws people together to form a community. “I realized that everybody here, we are together as a community, we all have to help each other, and I realized that very much here,” she said. “I would definitely encourage other people to volunteer. “It’s also getting a chance to get to know the career you want to go into or the community that you’ll be working for.” Wherever the future will take this student, she will definitely continue to volunteer, whether in Kamloops or elsewhere. It’s become a huge part of her identity. “I look forward to contributing more to the community through my volunteering,” she said.

Grimm coaching players to become great people Chad’s background and “calm demeanour make the




he work of a coach involves more than just helping someone be the best athlete they can be. In most cases, it involves helping someone be the best person they can be. According to Thompson Rivers University sports information officer Larry Read, that’s work in which Chad Grimm excels — and why Grimm is a KTW Community Leader Award winner in the Coach category. “Chad possesses all the key ingredients to be a coach,” Read said. “Not only is he a top quality volleyball coach, but he is also a qualified teacher and councillor. “He truly cares about everyone he comes in contact with — whether it be a young player, a university athlete or anyone associated with volleyball or sports.” Grimm was playing volleyball professionally in Europe when an injury left him unable to continue his career. Returning to Kamloops in 2006, he began to pursue a career in teaching, while also becoming an assistant coach at TRU. In 2014, he took over as coach of the WolfPack women’s volleyball team. Grimm said he enjoys having the opportunity to help shape the people his students will one day become. “You can help guide them a little bit in their path to being, hopefully, contributing members of society,” he said. “And you see, from when they come in to when they leave, those typical five years, how much growth they’re able to make and the good that they’re able to do and what they give back to the community,” he said. Though Grimm appreciates the recognition that comes with the award, his focus has been in encouraging others to give back to their communities.

student/athlete experience for female volleyball players at Thompson Rivers University a valued one.

— LARRY READ, nominator

“I think that’s important, to get them out and involved because those connections are valuable,” he said. “Even professionally, we have girls that have made connections — and that’s led to employment. And that’s not the reason you do those things. But it is a side benefit of being involved in making good positive connections and good relations within the community.” For Grimm, the best part of coaching is being able to see how students’ involvement with volleyball at TRU can have a positive impact in their life. As an example, he points to international students who have come to Kamloops from unstable situations in their home countries. “To be able to see that ability for sport to change the whole path of people’s lives, that’s the biggest benefit for me,” Grimm said. “I mean, my life changed a lot because of sports. I got to play overseas, I got to see a lot of the world, I met my wife and I just like to see that opportunity provided for all the girls that come into the program. “It gives them an opportunity to make their life better.” Chad Grimm (at right with daughter Naya) is the recipient of the Coach Award in the inaugural KTW Community Leader Awards.
