SD73 kids get ink in NY Times Two Kamloops students have been recognized by the New York Times for their poetry skills. Shreya Sharma and Gracie Dempsey, Grade 9 English honours students at Brocklehurst Middle School, were among 61 teenagers who had their works singled out from a pool 2,500 submissions to the newspaper’s Blackout Poetry contest. A blackout poem involves taking a black marker to existing text — such as in a newspaper — and blacking out words until a poem is formed by the remaining text. The Times asked applicants to have fun playing with language, fiddle with different combinations to create new imagery and ideas and use illustrations, if desired, to enhance the meaning of the words. A panel of six judges selected 25 poems as their favourites and another 36 poems as runners-up.

Shreya’s poem, A Piece of Music, was one of the winners, and Gracie’s Of Interest was chosen as a runner-up. “Without the support and guidance of their teacher, none of this would have been possible,” said SD73 superintendent Alison Sidow. Below is Shreya’s poem, A Piece of Music: A piece of music In part conveys A new ground A fresh wave Strings of time Knotty and gnarly Compose that piece Meticulously

After more than four decades of management by an independent corporation, the city will in the new year assume operation of its only two parkades, both of which are downtown. The Kamloops Downtown Parking Corporation has been silently working behind the scenes since 1975, monitoring the cityowned Seymour Street and Lansdowne Street parkades. Effective Jan. 1, the city will move toward automation — possibly a gated system similar to that found at Royal Inland Hospital — with bylaw officers enforcing parking rules similar to other city parking stalls. Acting bylaw services manager Tammy Blundell said the deci-

sion by council not to renew the corporation’s contract, which expires on Dec. 31, was made to improve efficiency and provide customers with pay option alternatives to cash and cheque. The corporation didn’t have the resources to automate, she said. Currently, the corporation employs one full-time office manager, a part-time assistant, a maintenance person and about a half-dozen people who work in the cash box booths. The office manager, who works out of an office in the Seymour Street parkade, will stay on through the first three to four months of 2020 to ensure a smooth transition. The others will be out of work with the corporation’s dissolution at the end of the year. The value of the city contract with the Kamloops Downtown

Parking Corporation is unclear. Blundell said it fluctuates from month to month, with the corporation managing the parkades and collecting fares, paying its operating costs and sending anything remaining at the end of the month to the city. Blundell said automating the process will likely mean more money in city coffers. “That is definitely expected,” she said, noting revenues will go into a parkade management reserve for future city needs. Parkade users can expect new technology in the future, including online payment. More information is expected in the coming months. Blundell said bylaw officers will be responsible for the parkades until 9 p.m. and discussions will also occur in the coming months about evening security.

TRU gets No. 1 sustainability ranking KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Thompson Rivers University has been named the top college or university in North America for sustainability by the Sierra Club — the first Canadian university to be ranked No. 1 in the annual survey. For 13 years, the Sierra Club has been ranking colleges and universities according to which ones offer the best sustainabilityfocused courses, eco-friendly cafeteria provisions and carbon-neutral land and energy policies, as well as the most opportunities to engage with the environmental movement. This year, a record 282 schools vied to become the eco-savviest in all of academia, with TRU finishing atop the pack. Here is what the Sierra Club had to say about TRU and its commitment to sustainability: “The first Canadian school to top our ranking deserves kudos for diverting more than 70 per cent of its waste stream away

from landfills and avoiding fossil fuels for heating — no easy feat in chilly British Columbia. “Thompson Rivers heats some buildings using a biomass system that burns waste wood and others with electricity produced from hydropower, wind, and solar. “The university is also in the process of transitioning its entire vehicle fleet to electric or hybrid vehicles. At convocation, students with a leadership in environmental sustainability certificate — earned through environmental engagement in and out of class, in tandem with any undergraduate or graduate program — receive special recognition. “TRU rewards sustainability ambassadors, students who spearhead zero-waste initiatives and educate their peers on smarter consumption, with partial-tuition vouchers.” In recognizing TRU, the Sierra Club includes the STARS scores from the Association for the Advancement of

Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), then ranks schools according to the club’s own weighting criteria, based on its own priorities. The Sierra Club also includes a supplemental question about fossil fuel investments. The Cool School status comes just a few days after AASHE listed TRU as the top master’s institution in its 2019 Sustainable Campus Index. TRU was No. 1 in the energy category and tied with the University of Alberta for co-ordination and planning. AASHE oversees a program that provides participating colleges and universities with a framework for measuring their sustainability performance. The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS) is a global sustainability standard created by and for higher education institutions. In fall of 2019, TRU achieved a platinum rating in STARS, making it the first university in Canada to achieve that status and one of only six in the world to reach that level.

A Kamloops woman is warning the public not to be taken in by phone scams after she received two dubious calls in three hours last week. Maeve Topolnisky said she received a call at about about 7 a.m. on the morning of Aug. 26 from someone claiming to be a Royal Bank of Canada employee. The man on the other line asked for her by name and told Topolnisky a suspicious party had withdrawn $780 from her bank account. He asked for her account number in order to put a hold on the transaction. Topolnisky, however, knew it was a scam. “I’ve never had an RBC account,” she told KTW. Topolnisky didn’t tell the fraudster that and simply denied the request and hung up. About three hours later, she received a call from another person claiming to be with RBC who asked for her by name and gave her the same story. When she again refused, the person on the other line said he had called the wrong person. Topolnisky said she called the Kamloops RCMP detachment to report the scam and was told that police don’t take any action unless money has been stolen. The advice from police is to refrain from

giving out personal information over the phone. The RCMP warns that at no time should banking information be given over the phone to anyone, unless you have called the institution directly. If a banking institution should call you, police advise calling back using a number

found online by you or a number given to you previously by your bank. Sgt. Sascha Fesenko told KTW the call sounds like your “typical scam,” but he hasn’t noticed any other complaints of that specific story being reported to police. “They can happen any time, anywhere with that type of thing,” Fesenko said.

The mercury didn’t break 40 C and there was less rain than usual this summer in Kamloops, which saw nearaverage temperatures for the summer months. Kamloopsians may not have felt a difference in the heat last month as the mean daily temperature for August was 21.7 C, which was in line with the 20.9 C average in August 2018. “It’s only the 22nd-warmest on record,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Bobby Sekhon, noting records date to 1892. The summer months as a whole were on par with historical averages. Across June, July and August this year, the mean daily temperature was 20.4 C. “And that’s pretty much bang on [the] normal of 20.3 degrees Celsius,” Sekhon said. Monthly highs for those months were 33.3 C on June 12, 35.2 C on July 22 and 36.4 C on Aug. 8. Uncharacteristically, the mercury stayed below 40 C. Last year, Kamloops broke that mark on Aug. 9 with a 40.2 C day. “The last two summers in general were very hot and dry,”

The Labour Day long weekend may serve as the last weekend of summer with respect to school and family vacations, but Mother Nature has indicated the summer weather will continue into September. The forecast calls for sunshine and heat through this week, with highs of 29 C on Wednesday, 33 C on Thursday and 32 C on Friday. A cloudy day is forecast for Saturday, with a predicted high of 27 C, before sunshine is expected to return on Sunday, with a high of 23 C.

During those three months, 71.4 millimetres of rain fell on Kamloops, compared to last summer’s 92.4 millimetres, which is close to the average 93 millimetres of precipitation Kamloops receives in the summer months. Sekhon said 2019 may have been a drier month, but the numbers still fall within the normal range for Kamloops at this time of year. And, unlike 2018 and 2017,

there was virtually no wildfire smoke with which to contend. For this fall, due to higher than normal surface temperatures in the eastern Pacific Ocean, Environment Canada is expecting warmer than normal temperatures along B.C.’s coast, which can mean the same for B.C.’s southern Interior, Sekhon said.

Sekhon said. “This year, we just had a much different [weather] pattern over B.C., where the really strong ridge of high pressure with the heat was more anchored over Alaska and even into the Yukon.” Sekhon said B.C. experienced more low atmospheric pressure, which kept temperatures a little cooler and closer to historical averages.

DRIVING DANGERS CAN BE AVOIDED

S

ummer vacation is over and kids are back in school. Work sites, too, are busier. That means more vehicles on our roads and more children crossing streets and walking along sidewalks and shoulders. In other words, the chances of a child being hit by a driver increases exponentially. There is, then, some irony in the fact the biggest risk factor to kids is parents driving dangerously. Irresponsible driving by parents is consistently reported in the last three BCAA annual surveys into driving behaviours seen in school zones. Rushing during drop-off and pick-up times is the biggest issue. Last year’s survey, conducted a few weeks after the start of the school year, revealed that 80 per cent of British Columbian parents had witnessed speeding, 73 per cent reported drivers not stopping in crosswalks and 56 per cent saw at least one near miss involving a child almost being hit by a car. And it’s not getting better as 74 per cent reported no improvement over the year before. “It’s discouraging,” said Shawn Pettipas, BCAA’s director of community engagement. “We’re seeing the same driving problems every year — parents are rushing and it’s putting kids in danger. We’re asking parents to think about the impact of their behaviour on others. We really hope the message is heard this year.” Families seem to be busier and busier these days and a new school year will mean more stress and pressure and time crunches for all of us. But remember that vehicles of any size can be deadly weapons if operated irresponsibly — and a child will always lose in a collision with a car or SUV or truck driven by an impatient parent. Take a deep breath, plan your day, leave early, slow down and drive with care.

Welcome back to school

I

n recent weeks, School District 73 staff were busy ensuring every school would be ready to welcome students on the first day of classes. The beginning of the school year marks the end of summer holidays and the return to a schedule and routine. Being prepared for the routine and schedule can be an important part of a successful transition back to school. Just as district staff have been preparing everything from school classrooms to lesson plans, students and families can be planning for the school year ahead. In preparation for learning, it can be helpful to establish a routine. Even while the first week of school gets underway, it is not too late to get into regular bedtime and sleep habits. Scheduling play dates or arranging a time to visit with familiar friends who will be going to school together can be helpful in decreasing the stress of the beginning of school. For younger students, some time spent practising pick-up and drop-off routines can be helpful in alleviating some of the anxiety. Students of all ages are beginning a new chapter. For some, it will be the first anxious days of kindergarten, where children let go of their parent’s hand and begin a whole new journey of learning in a classroom. For others, it is the first day of Grade 12, which sees students in the home stretch of achieving their graduation and education goals.

HEATHER GRIEVE View From

SD73

Whether in kindergarten or Grade 12, the year ahead can bring excitement — but it can also bring anxiety. Making sure students have what they need for a successful year, such as school supplies, is important. Elementary students can pick up supplies at their schools for a fee, eliminating the pressure of shopping for them. Other preparations that will help students succeed include identifying a place away from distractions to study and parents and guardians encouraging them to set goals for achievement. Now in its third year, the district’s strategic plan outlines our goals and highlights the importance of encouraging students to discover their own interests and passions. These strategic goals emphasize providing relevant, hands-on learning experiences using the core competencies of critical thinking, creativity and communication. Early learning and transitioning to school for kindergarten

students is also a top priority. A strong start at school is key to long-term student success. Our focus on literacy is paying dividends and we will now apply this focus to a similar strategy in numeracy. Following on the introduction of the redesigned curriculum for grades K to 10 last year, the new graduation program is ready for implementation. The BC Policy for Student Success provides greater flexibility for teachers to address the interests of students, preparing them for a successful transition to post-secondary school and the world of work. As I complete my first year as a school trustee, I have been able to see the focus placed on students every day: transporting them to school, teaching them, maintaining schools and administrating their education. The number of moving parts SD73 puts in motion every day across our district for the first day back is a true picture of teamwork and collaboration. I am proud of the district’s commitment to students and their learning success and I look forward to continuing to be a part of its growth and evolution.

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

ABOUT HONG KONG AND CHINA

KILLER DOGS, NOT BEARS, SHOULD BE PRIORITY IN CITY Editor: Re: (‘Barrage of bear calls in Kamloops has conservation officers busy,’ Aug. 21): As the article notes, conservation officers killed a bear in Dallas that was attracted by food left in a tent in a yard. The bear was no threat and no one or animal was hurt of killed. It was deemed a dangerous animal and was killed before it was guilty of anything other than looking for food. A week ago, a negligent neighbour was walking his two pit bulls off-leash in my neighbourhood when one of the dogs ran into my yard and viciously attacked and ultimately killed my beloved cat. The city’s animal control department did not consider the dog to be dangerous and gave it back to the owner. This same dog tried to attack another neighbour’s cat. The feline thankfully got away. When this dog attacks the toddlers in their yard, I hope city staff wake up and see the real threat. Frank Weber Heffley Creek

Editor: The Hong Kong and China issue is not simply acceding to signed conventions and anachronistic intentions. We all use mental maps to guide our journey through life. For better or worse, we also can get mired in muck by using the same dog-eared, fraying and fading map, disregarding new roads that have been constructed, barriers that have formed river diversions and new paths in the hills that have been discovered. We can then even arrive at a previously marked community that no longer exists as a result of devastating wildfire or flood, melting permafrost, diseasedecimated population, nuclear contamination — whatever the case may be. Yet we persist in using those old familiar maps to orient our journeys. What is infrequently considered is that physical markers are not the only

aspects that change; societal cultures do, as well. Gradual, imperceptible internal transformations, germinated by natural evolution of educational practices, habits, technology, language(s), belief systems, forms of governance, laws, geography, economy, interactions with the external world (e.g. other communities and countries), as well as intra-societal connectivity and distantiation — among other determinants of culture — create unique societies. Each unique society may find resonance or dissonance with other communities and countries, with degrees of congruence in between. This is what has developed and is happening in Hong Kong and Taiwan in relation to China. The populations of Hong Kong and Taiwan have had comprehensive, itera-

tive transformations resulting in mindsets, world views and sundry sociocultural aspects becoming ingrained to a depth that it has become vastly different from the land that is trying to reabsorb them. Thus, attempts by China to forcefully reunify come across as inimical to Hong Kong and Taiwan. It, therefore, is a dead end for some. Taiwan has considerable capacity, with its international supporters, to withstand China’s attempt at forceful reunification. Hong Kong, under a different constraining commitment, must realize that even if it can withstand the next 20 years, it would be legally reabsorbed into a totally incompatible sociocultural system.

DOWNTOWN HAS A LOT TO OFFER, BUT . . . Editor: Having just received a parking ticket during my 2.5-minute dash into the downtown library to exchange books, I continue to question the city’s choice to spend tax revenue on bylaw officers, equipment and thirdparty contractors to drive locals and visitors away from shopping, dining and all of the good things downtown Kamloops has to offer. All that in exchange for a middling stream of revenue

straight out of the pockets of citizens. It is difficult enough to keep local downtown businesses afloat when rents are already rising and the distance to downtown is an obstacle for many. Although I was not parked in the loading zone in front of the library doors, I was informed by the bylaw officer that even if I was parked there, I would still receive a ticket unless my trunk was open and it was obvious I was loading/unloading inside.

Considering the number of shady individuals consistently hanging around outside the library entrance (who are not receiving bylaw infraction tickets, at least not that I’ve seen), I do not consider it wise to leave my vehicle’s trunk open as I load and unload. I also found it ironic that as I was talking to the officer, a character walked by on a public sidewalk and enveloped us with a cloud of marijuana smoke within a handful of metres from

Spring start to VSS project? MICHAEL POTESTIO

the expansion project this past spring. Sidow said there was an initial consultation with VSS staff this past spring and they have had an opportunity to look at initial plans and offer feedback. “I think staff had some questions around where the best place for certain classrooms should be — for instance, where should the science wing be, was the shop in the right place,” Sidow said. She said once the design plans are completed, they will be released publicly. The Valleyview expansion, announced on April 12, will bring the school’s capacity from 675 to 1,200 students. With 940 students now at VSS, the addi-

tion will result in the removal of the nine portables on the site by the time the project is completed in September 2022. Thirty-one days passed from the day of the funding announcement to selection of the design firm. Built to LEED Gold standards, the project will include 20 new classrooms, a new gymnasium, a multi-purpose space, special education classrooms, a new pick-up and drop-off area for buses, parking stalls and outdoor play areas. The Kamloops-Thompson school district is contributing $1.75 million toward the cost of the project, with the remaining $32.75 million covered by the provincial government.

School District 73 is ready for B.C.’s new curriculum now in place across all grade levels. Having been implemented from kindergarten to the Grade 10 level last year, the new curriculum comes into effect at the Grade 11 and 12 level for 2019-2020 after years in trial. “It’s our first go-through,” said SD73 director of instruction Lisa Carson. “We’ve certainly had a few schools running pilots, trying out the new curriculum in 11, 12 last year, but it’s official as of this year.” While foundational skills such as reading, writing and math are still at its centre, B.C.’s new curriculum is focused on communication, critical thinking and personal-social skills. There will also be more of a focus on incorporating Indigenous knowledge and perspectives in class. When it comes to implementation of the new curriculum, Carson said SD73 has workshops and a number of staff who are working one-on-one with teachers. “They [teachers] have the autonomy to make the curriculum fit the needs of the learners,” said assistant superintendent Rob Schoen.

“Schools have had two years to get ready for this, we had an extra curriculum and development day last year and the year prior for our schools to get their heads wrapped around the new curriculum and the implementation plan,” he said. A number of changes come into effect for the 2019-2020 school year. Career education classes will be in full swing as the new career life connections 12 course is now in place. In order to graduate, students in grades 10 to 12 are required to complete a capstone project and two career education courses — one of which involves 30 hours of work or volunteer experience. Carson described the new classes as one of the biggest changes in the new curriculum. “I think the public might think it’s a new planning 10 and it’s certainly not. The new curriculum is very different from that,” she said. “We have all kinds of community members coming in to classes and we have those career experience moments being developed.” Career life education 10 was implemented last fall as part of the new curriculum’s graduation program rollout, replacing planning 10. The new classes can be com-

bined with the former planning 10 and graduation transitions courses to meet the requirement. Three new final exams are now part of the curriculum — Grade 10 and Grade 12 literacy assessment tests and a Grade 10 numeracy assessment. While the Grade 10 numeracy test has been in place since 2018 and the Grade 10 literacy test is available this November, the Grade 12 literacy test is still in development and won’t be in place until 2020-2021. “Students in Grade 12 this year will not write a graduation literacy assessment, but next year they will, so this is kind of an anomaly this year,” Carson said. The results of these exams will be reported as standalone items on student transcripts and replace course-based provincial exams, evaluating essential numeracy and literacy abilities developed across many areas of learning and grades, rather than content knowledge from one particular course. Students in grades 10 to 12 will continue to receive report cards with letter grades and percentages for all courses, and still be required to complete at least 80 credits for graduation, but the requirement for daily physical activity for grades 11 and 12 is now discontinued.

Endowment created for TRU nursing students Starting this fall, a pair of Thompson Rivers University teachers are giving some financial support nursing students intent on helping refugees. Retired TRU faculty member Penelope Heaslip and current faculty member and TRU alum Wendy McKenzie have established an endowment to fund with $20,000, creating an annual award for a thirdor fourth-year nursing student who has demonstrated a commitment to

the care of refugees, immigrants and vulnerable populations. Ideal candidates for the $800 award will be students working toward achieving the TRU Global Competency Certification or attending an international or study abroad experience. “Both Penny and I have a lot of experience taking students on global practice experiences,” McKenzie said. “One of the consistencies we find all over there is the fact that

McKenzie, who is a former student of Heaslip’s, also teaches global health while focusing her research on disaster nursing.

Seat belt requirement a double bogey, B.C. golf industry says TOM FLETCHER

BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

WorkSafeBC is rethinking its plan to require golf courses across the province to outfit all of their motorized equipment with seat belts and rollover protection bars following an industry outcry about cost and impracticality of the move. Golf course managers have been hearing about the new rule set to take effect in September. It’s not just for employees mowing fairways and driving refreshment carts, but for all their customerrented power carts, too. That’s because employees in company golf tournaments or corporate teams in charity tournaments would potentially have

Will golfers, such as these participants in a past Breastate Unclassic Tournament in Kamloops, be forced to wear seatbelts in the near future? WorkSafeBC is mulling that idea. KTW FILE PHOTO

access to workers’ compensation benefits if they are injured while playing, B.C. Liberal tourism critics Doug Clovechok and Michelle Stilwell said. In a letter to Tourism Minister Lisa Beare, the MLAs for Revelstoke and Parksville said the requirement would cost the B.C. golf industry as much as $20 million to upgrade its equipment. They said the extra costs would be disastrous for B.C. tourism as prices rise and golfers can easily shift vacations

to Alberta, Montana, Idaho or Washington. Golf course operators say the idea is not only costly for the B.C. industry, but that it won’t work. “It’s ridiculous to think that you’re going to hit a shot and then get in the cart and put a seat belt on, and then drive maybe 100 yards, take the seat belt off and keep doing that,” said Brian Schaal, B.C. representative on the board of the National Golf Course Owners Association. Schaal is general

manager of Copper Point Golf Club in Invermere. His facility has 138 power carts, plus beverage, marshall and other carts, and he estimates a retrofit would cost about $1,600 per cart, if it can be done at all. Conventional carts have loose seat cushions and are not designed for seat belts. Stilwell and Clovechok said WorkSafeBC has refused to consider an exemption for corporate tournaments. They questioned if this is justified by actual injuries, since golf courses use curbs, fences, GPS controls and automatic speed limiters to keep golf carts safe. After inquiries by Black Press, WorkSafeBC appears to be taking a mulligan on the plan. WorkSafeBC is working on revisions to section 16 of its Occupational Health and Safety regulation, the part dealing with mobile equipment such as forklifts, all-terrain vehicles and golf carts, spokesman Ralph Eastman said in an email. Consultation was conducted over the past year and more will be done. “Based on stakeholder input, WorkSafeBC is reviewing the proposed revisions to the regulation, including how they will be applied to various vehicles and users,” Eastman said. “ Additional consultation and public hearings will be conducted this fall. “There is no specific date yet for when the new revisions will be completed.”

B.C. government to give Girl Guides some school credits as boys’ groups Right on time for the new school year, the B.C. Ministry of Education has made a change — prompted by B.C. Girl Guide advocacy — that will benefit teen girls enrolled in Girl Guides across the province. Girl Guides will receive four credits for achieving the Canada Cord and the Trailblazer Leadership Gold Award, for a total of eight possible graduation credits, which is equivalent to two high school classes. This change will bring the Girl Guides credit in line with similar groups. Under the provincial government’s external credits program, B.C. teens can receive high school graduation credit for approved programs, like Cadets, Scouts and Girl Guides. To qualify, programs must be governed by a provincial, national or international body, have certified instructors, be nondiscriminatory and offer credentials to a number of students throughout B.C. Kylar Tennart, a 12-year-old Ladysmith Pathfinder, (the 12 to 14 age bracket of Girl Guides) noticed that Girl Guides received only two credits for achieving the Canada Cord, a prestigious award given to guides who put their leadership skills into action. The same was true for the Trailblazer Leadership Gold Award for girls ages 15 to 17. Under the previous system, Girl Guides who achieved both awards would receive only four graduation credits. Given the difficulty of achieving the awards, Kylar believed Guides deserved more credit. At the Rally on the Shores Girl Guides event in Nanaimo, Kylar approached Girl Guides provincial commissioner Diamond Isinger with her idea. “Kylar came up with the idea and said, ‘I want this change to be made’… I gave her my business card and I said, ‘Send me an email with more details,’” Isinger said. “She emailed immediately after the event that evening. So, I knew she meant business and she really cared about making this change for other girls.”

Following Kylar’s feedback, Insinger did research on the topic and found Girl Guides were receiving significantly fewer credits than organizations that catered to traditionally male audiences, such as Cadets and Scouts — even though their awards require similar learning outcomes, time and effort. The B.C. Girl Guides then reached out the Ministry of Education. The ministry was open-minded and collaborated with the Girl Guides on implementing the change. Isinger said the B.C. Girl Guides have been developing programs that align closely with the new provincial curriculum. “There’s a lot of focus on personal growth and having a growth mindset where you’re constantly trying to improve yourself, to discover new things, and challenge yourself. That’s what we’re all about,” Isinger said. “I think it’s terrific. We’re always looking for more attention for the amazing contributions our girls make through the program.” For Kyalr, the development has come as a big surprise. She said she didn’t expect the government to listen to her idea. “I thought that they wouldn’t approve of it,” she said. “I have a lot of emotions right now. It feels good because I know that I’m changing something.” The change could potentially impact thousands of girls in B.C. as Girl Guides are seeing increased enrolment across the province. Currently, Girl Guides are looking for adult women to volunteer as Guide leaders. “We’re doing a lot of exciting things as an organization,” Isinger said. “There are a lot of communities that are growing in B.C. very quickly. Lots of new families are moving to those communities, and lots of children are being born in those communities… We’re always trying to find those inspiring, amazing women to be those champions.”

The Bob Squad was strong in numbers during the 2017 Multiple Myeloma March in Kamloops. This Sunday will mark the third year of the event, which will take place downtown in Pioneer Park. Registration is at 9 a.m., with the walk beginning at 10 a.m. The Kamloops event is one of 28 being held across the nation. Myeloma Canada was founded in 2005 by Aldo Del Col, who could find virtually no information on the disease after being diagnosed. He died on Aug. 6 after 17 years with multiple myeloma. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW FILE

Myeloma March set for Pioneer Park on weekend TODD SULLIVAN

STAFF REPORTER

todd@kamloopsthisweek.com

For Bob Trudeau, one of the founding members of the Kamloops Myeloma Support Group, participating in the annual Multiple Myeloma March is personal. In 2016, three years after retiring from the BC Forestry Service, Trudeau started experiencing severe pain in his torso, but he kept running, hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing until it became too much to bear. When he went to the doctor, he learned he had 11 fractured vertebrae. After further investigation, Trudeau was diagnosed in January 2017 with multiple myeloma, a littleknown and incurable blood cancer

of the plasma cells. He was 59. “When I was diagnosed, I thought, ‘How could this happen to me?’ I’ve always lived a healthy lifestyle, eating well and exercising my whole life. To end up with an incurable cancer was a real shock,” he said. In August 2017, Trudeau underwent chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant. He has also lost an inch-and-ahalf of his height from the fractures. Up until this year, Trudeau was in remission, but he has since relapsed and is currently undergoing treatment with a combination of immunotherapy and chemotherapy drugs. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell that normally produces antibodies. Cancer cells accumulate in the bone marrow, where they crowd out healthy blood cells.

It is considered treatable, but incurable. Life span is typically eight to 10 years after diagnosis. The Multiple Myeloma March, which occurs every year in September, is the only large fundraiser for Myeloma Canada. Funds raised are used for research and advocacy. The Kamloops Multiple Myeloma March will take place this Sunday in Pioneer Park, with registration at 9 a.m. and the walk beginning at 10 a.m. This Friday, two days before the march, the Kamloops Myeloma Education Day will be held at the Japanese Cultural Centre, in North Kamloops at 160 Vernon Ave. The event is open to the public and will feature discussions from oncologists, kinesiologists and more. This weekend’s march will be the third annual in Kamloops fol-

lowing the creation of the support group in March 2017. Trudeau is the one who first got things rolling. “I told the group I would set the first one up for Kamloops,” he said. “So I did the ground work for that, getting permits, location, walk route, etc. I felt because I seemed to be luckier than many people with myeloma, that I wanted to give back by helping others and helping to make more people aware of this little-known blood cancer — and to help raise funds to find a cure.” The previous two marches have seen a turnout lower than the local group would have liked, with between 50 and 75 participants each year. Last year, the Kamloops event raised just over $13,000, while about $550,000 was raised at the national level.

Trudeau noted most of the funds — about 87 per cent — are spent on research and advocacy, rather than running Myeloma Canada’s administration. “It’s an extremely well run organization,” he said. “Myeloma patients have seen their treatment options increase exponentially over the past decade,” said Dr. Greg Dueck, principal investigator at the BC Cancer Agency’s Centre for the Southern Interior. “Thanks to major strides in research, not only has quality of life improved but we’re encouraged to say that life expectancies have more than doubled in the past 15 years and this is continuing on an upward trend. For the first time, we can actually say that we’re getting closer to finding a cure.” More information can be found online at myeloma.ca.

HABITAT TEAMS UP WITH RUST VALLEY RESTORERS Habitat for Humanity Kamloops is raffling off a classic convertible from the 1960s, valued at more than $68,000 and restored by Mike Hall, star of History Channel’s Rust Valley Restorers, which is filmed in Tappen, west of Kamloops in the Shuswap. To raise funds and community awareness to support its hous-

ing program, Habitat Kamloops decided to organize a classic car raffle. While searching for a car, Habitat officials met with Mayhem Entertainment, which produces Rust Valley Restorers in association with Corus Studios. From there, Habitat staff met with title character Hall, who owns the restoration shop — and an agreement was reached. Rust Valley Restorers is currently in production, including an episode featuring the car that will be part of the Habitat for Humanity Kamloops raffle.

tone tools, bone implements, remnants of ancient dwellings and culturally modified trees. These are things archeologists can see, record and interpret about how people lived in the past. The artifacts archeologists study are just a tiny fraction of the things people used — their “material culture,” as archeologists call it. There are so many things that do not survive the centuries and millennia that archeologists very rarely have any opportunity to study. Compounding the challenge archeologists face when trying to interpret the past are all the things that change these sites from what they looked like the last time they were occupied. Archeologists study the various things that happen to archeological sites over time, called taphonomy, in order to try to squeeze as much information about the traces left behind as possible. Historic and modern land development have obscured the vast network of trails that formed the basis for regional trade and cultural exchange in the past. Some sections of trails still exist in more remote areas in British Columbia, but most of this Indigenous infrastructure has been lost

RECORD HIGH FOR MEDIAN HOME PRICE JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

LABOURING TO HAVE SOME FUN IN THE SUN

The Kamloops and District Labour Council hosted its annual Labour Day Picnic in McDonald Park on Monday. Clockwise from top: Labour Council president Barb Nederpel uses her phone to capture some video of the day’s entertainment; Sharlene Marican, the professional development chair of the BC Teachers’ Federation, gives an apple to Colby McDermott, who is starting Grade 1 this month; Eve Burger uses her balloon parasol to protect herself from the sun. ALLEN DOUGLAS PHOTOS/KTW

We’ll show you it’s possible.

As housing prices continue to inch up in Kamloops, higher-priced home sales pushed the median residential price to a record high in August. The Kamloops and District Real Estate Association is reporting a new record, at $510,000. KADREA president Wendy Runge said the new mark was due to more homes selling in the $600,000-$700,000 range, at 27, resulting from an overall housing price increase. “Because our pricing is continuing to increase, we’re going to see things that would have sold more in that high 4’s are now in the 5’s,” Runge said. “You start to see that creeping up over time.” Overall, Runge said, the local real estate market is balanced. Activity continues to be down, she said, with some real estate agents reporting listings not being shown. In August, a total of 294 homes sold, a decrease of nine per cent from the same month last year. Overall to date, sales are down by about eight per cent. Meanwhile, pricing keeps rising. The average home price in August was $421,000, a 10 per cent increase over the same time last year. The average price of a singlefamily home last month was $481,000, up five per cent from last year. Townhouses showed the biggest increase, up 11 per cent from last year at an average sale price of $352,000. “It’s a weird conundrum,” Runge said. “And I think it’s because we don’t have a lot on the market right now.” Inventory appears to be increasing slightly, however. August saw 443 new homes listed, up four per cent from last year. Year-to-date new listings are on par with one year ago, but the number of active listings to the end of August was up 12 per cent from last year, at 1,331 units. In August, Sahali and Brocklehurst saw the most activity, at 32 and 31 units sold respectively, followed by Westsyde, at 23 sales. Most homes sold in the $400,000 to $500,000 range.

TRU BANS CASH TUITION PAYMENTS

Decision stems from province’s money-laundering probe

SO MANY WAYS TO SCRATCH.

STAFF REPORTER

Thompson Rivers University is no longer accepting cash for tuition payments following a government report identifying B.C.’s postsecondary institutions as being vulnerable to money laundering. This past spring, the province asked all postsecondary schools to prohibit accepting large cash payments from students and ensure their financial policies prohibit such actions. Those without a cash acceptance policy were asked to draft one. TRU vice-president of administration and finance Matt Milovick told KTW via email the university has no reason to believe its cash acceptance policies have been taken advantage of for the purposes of laundering money, but added the school is making the change in order to minimize the potential risk. While the university will no longer accept

Our post-secondary “ institutions must not be

used to launder money and we are asking them to review their policies to put a stop to it.

— DAVUID EBY Attorney General

cash for tuition, it will accept cash for other transactions, including application fees, registration deposits, parking fees and library fines. The maximum cash payment TRU will accept is $1,000 per day. The university informed the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training of these changes at the end of June. Former senior RCMP officer Peter German’s second report to government on money laundering in B.C. identified

alleged reports of the activity in the province’s post-secondary system. According to Attorney General David Eby, German advised that people are paying thousands of dollars in suspicious cash for multiple semesters in advance and then seeking refunds by cheque. “Our post-secondary institutions must not be used to launder money and we are asking them to review their policies to put a stop to it,” Eby said.

Airport receives money for shelter The federal government has given Kamloops Airport more than a half-million dollars to build a shelter for firefighting vehicles. Ottawa’s $555,900 grant will create the facility that will house two aircraft rescue firefighting vehicles. The grant money will also be used to renovate and expand the existing shelter to accommodate the second vehicle. The shelter protects the firefighting vehicles from environmental conditions

such as ice and snow and allows for the rapid response to aircraft emergencies. The funding comes from Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program. To date, Kamloops Airport has received more than $10 million in ACAP funding for 16 safety projects, including the rehabilitation of a runway, the apron and taxiways and the purchase of two aircraft rescue firefighting vehicles and snow-clearing equipment.

Drivers can contact B.C.’s Ombudsperson People unhappy with how the new ICBC system is working can now report issues to B.C. Ombudsperson Jay Chalke. The Office of the Ombudsperson said Chalke can look into unfair applications of the new rate structure. “Vehicle owners should take a close look at their next insurance

policy to ensure the information being considered by ICBC in determining their renewal rate, such as accident history, is accurate,” Chalke. “We recommend that vehicle owners try to solve their problems directly with ICBC and its agents first, but if they still believe they have been treated unfairly, our investigators may be able

to look more closely at individual complaints.” Chalke said “fairness issues” often arise whenever public bodies like ICBC implement major changes. The new rate structure is a more driver-based insurance model that will see driving experience and crash history play a bigger role in determining premiums.

PONYTAILED PENTICTON POACHER PACES PACK James Fraser of the TRU WolfPack is fouled by Sylvain Taghaoussi of the Victoria Vikes inside the 18-yard box in Canada West play on Sunday at Hillside Stadium. Fraser scored on the penalty kick. TRU won 5-0.

ames Fraser is a ponytailed poacher. The TRU WolfPack forward even pilfered a goal from teammate Josh Banton, one of his three markers in a 5-0 victory over the Victoria Vikes in Canada West men’s soccer play on Sunday at sunny Hillside Stadium. “He never stops,” WolfPack head coach John Antulov said of Fraser, who nabbed the Pack’s only goal in a 1-1 tie with the two-time defending conference champion UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday at Hillside. “We always say he’s like a dog on a bone. He just never gives up. His engine is working all the time. He’s going to be a force in Canada West.” Fraser earned headlines on the weekend, but the bigger story might be the overall performance of a team that lost key pieces in the off-season. Prolific talisman and former Canada West men’s soccer player of the year Mitch Popadynetz graduated. He accounted for about 18 per cent of the WolfPack’s scoring [28 of TRU’s 153 points] over the last two seasons. Dylan Hooper of Winnipeg and Kamloops product Justin Donaldson flanked Fraser up front for the WolfPack’s first two games of the 2019 campaign. The tandem clicked, thanks in part to deft service from midfielders, in particular Banton and Jan Pirretas Glasmacher of Barcelona. Hooper opened the scoring on Saturday on a goal that resulted from a Donaldson run down the left wing. The second goal was all Fraser, who seemed angered by a Vikes’ tackle and used the emotion to chase down and dispossess a Victoria defender. Fraser, who had a clear path toward goal, was tripped while shooting inside the 18-yard box. He opted to go down the middle from the penalty spot, expecting

UBC goalkeeper Harjot Nijjar to dive. Nijjar dove. TRU goalkeeper Jackson Gardner, with an impressive leaping stop on a fierce Victoria halfvolley, and the cranium of English defender Harry Coles, used to block another Vikes’ howitzer, did their part in keeping the clean sheet intact through 45 minutes. Gardner, a second-year business student from Chilliwack, has competition this season in English import Olivier Jumeau, a rookie. “We’ve got two 1-A keepers,” Antulov said. “Oli is a good quality goalkeeper and Jackson just came in and worked really, really hard.

“He’s making that key save when he has to. It was his job to lose and he’s earned it.” The WolfPack led 2-0 at halftime. Glasmacher lobbed a 50-50 ball in Fraser’s vicinity in the 71st minute. “The centre back was actually in front of me,” said Fraser, who is from Penticton. “I just kind of jumped around him and poked it in the corner. I poached it. I don’t think the ‘keeper saw it coming.” The third goal, that one-touch slice off the outside of Fraser’s right boot, was a cutting blow. Banton made a further incision in the 85th minute, knifing up the middle of the field and dribbling

through opposition before using his left foot to test Nijjar. The goalkeeper got a leg on the ball, but the rebound looped behind him toward the net and found the head of Fraser about three inches before the goal line. It may have gone in without a nod from the poacher. “I definitely owe him a couple beers,” Fraser said. Late substitution Jordano Pinto scored in injury time to complete the drubbing. “It’s really nice to start like this,” said Fraser, a fourth-year business student. “We said a tie against UBC means nothing if we don’t win this game.” UBC is the No. 1-ranked team

in a pre-season Canada West coaches’ poll. TRU is fourth and Victoria is eighth. Vikes’ head coach Bruce Wilson told TRU Sports Information his team, missing a few injured players, was equal to the Pack in the first half. “All is not lost,” Wilson said. The Victoria coach expressed discontent with the turf field at Hillside Stadium. “It’s not really hard [to adjust], but it is difficult on the legs. Totally different,” said Wilson, whose charges play on a grass pitch in Victoria. “The grass is softer, quicker. When it’s hot like this, it’s difficult to play. Passing is difficult. The ball grips on the turf. I just think grass is better.” Antulov said he was pleased with progression on Sunday. The WolfPack starting 11, the same both days this weekend, has not had time to develop chemistry. Glasmacher, midfielder Chris Rass, an Austrian newcomer, and defender Callum Etches, also new to the team this year, are among those who were recovering from injuries during the pre-season. Central defenders Etches and Coles held their own in the middle, McPhie’s former domain. “Everyone has to step up,” Coles said. “Finlay is a big loss. “To get a five-nil win is massive, especially for the defence to keep a clean sheet and play the way we did. We’re absolutely delighted with it.” Victoria (2-2) will twice play host to the UNBC Timberwolves (1-2-1) of Prince George next weekend. TRU (1-0-1) will square off against Trinity (0-2-0) in Langley on Friday and Fraser Valley (1-2-1) in Abbotsford on Saturday. “We just need to continue at this pace,” Antulov said. “We can’t get too excited about this win.”

Logan Stankoven had three goals and five points for the Blazers in a pre-season victory over the Royals on Saturday.

Stankoven hype builds MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Logan Stankoven was given the night off on Sunday. Shaun Clouston, who took the Kamloops Blazers’ head coaching reins in June, may have learned more about his top-prospect forward that night than he did on Saturday, when Stankoven, 16, tallied three goals and five points in a 9-1 win over the Victoria Royals in WHL pre-season action at Sandman Centre. “He has a tonne of energy,” said Clouston, whose charges improved to 2-0 in exhibition play by knocking off Kelowna 5-3 on Sunday. “We honestly missed that a little bit tonight. He just buzzes, he’s tenacious and he’s got a smile on his face.” Anticipation has been growing in this town since, and perhaps even before, Stankoven was routinely dominating games playing for the atom development Western Roofing Nailers. Fans watched him excel in the peewee and bantam ranks and many were thrilled when the Blazers nabbed him fifth overall in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.

The Valleyview secondary student destroyed the B.C. Major Midget League in 2018-2019, notching 49 goals, 52 assists and 101 points in 38 games for the Thompson Blazers, team records in each category. Only Alexander Kerfoot (108 points, 2010-2011) and Matthew Barzal (103 points, 2012-2013) racked up more points in a single BCMML season. The tease of his 15-year-old campaign, when Stankoven got into seven regular-season tilts and six playoff games with the WHL’s Blazers, increased appetites to see him play regularly. Stankoven kept busy in the off-season, participating in a few hockey camps, including Hockey Canada’s under-17 development camp in Calgary in June, training with athletic therapist Kevin Brechin at Thompson Rivers University and tallying 61 points in 15 games for the Pleasure Pool Flyers in Kamloops Ball Hockey League action. “And then I jumped right into training camp with the Blazers,” Stankoven said. He didn’t do himself any favours in the managingexpectations department by compiling five points in his 2019

pre-season debut, even if the performance came against an inexperienced, exhibition-mode Royals’ squad. And leave it to Stankoven to heighten hype while dressed smartly and sitting in the stands on Sunday. “He obviously loves to score goals, but you felt a little bit of a loss tonight with his energy [not in the lineup],” Clouston said. “It’s contagious. “Not only is he a skilled player with a lot of talent, a lot of things that he brings to the table, but he brings a lot of energy, which is important.” TSN hockey analyst Craig Button told his more than 122,000 twitter followers on Monday to keep an eye out for Stankoven, the 5-foot-8, 170-pound right-shot from Kamloops. Folks in the Tournament Capital have been watching for at least a few years now, but regular shifts with the big club will finally begin on Sept. 20, when the Spokane Chiefs come to town for the Blazers’ home and season opener. “It’s pretty special,” Stankoven said. “It’s not every day a kid can get to play for his hometown team.”

Student cyber security precautions Thanks to advancements in technology, students and educators are increasingly turning to birth, tablets and computers when working on daily assignments and classroom activities. Students rely on the internet for research and keeping in touch with teachers and other students, while more and more work is assigned and completed via digital platforms. Despite the upside of technology, cyber crime is a potential pitfall of all that time spent online. The internet provides instant access — and that can put students at risk. According to Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, the education sector ranked sixth in the United States for the total number of reported “security incidents.” Schools are data-rich, meaning they give hackers access to information like identification numbers, birthdates, email addresses, financial data, medical records and more. Students must understand cyber security risks when working and sharing data online. The following are some tips students can follow: • Protect passwords: Students are urged to keep their passwords to themselves. This prevents others from using accounts maliciously or even in seemingly harmless ways that can put you in trouble, such as searching for inappropriate content in school. Choose

complicated passwords that can’t be easily guessed and opt for two-step authentication whenever offered. • Use secured WiFi networks: Free or open Wi-Fi connections are not encrypted, meaning they can be accessed by anyone. Many cyber criminals gain access to information through these channels. Schools should have encrypted systems in place. • Limit what you share on the internet: Students are urged to be aware of what they share online. Information posted to social media is permanent and deleted items aren’t necessarily gone. Exercise caution on social media. Don’t post unless it is something you would be comfortable sharing in public. • Watch out for phishing scams: Phishing

usually occurs through fraudulent email messages that mimic the look of reputable solicitations. Scammers rely on these tactics to tempt people to click on links or download attachments that can put malware on a device and steal personal data. Exercise caution with all links and downloads. • Schedule routine backups: Data can be lost if a device crashes, so routinely back up personal devices and home computers. Backups can be stored on external hard drives or with cloud services. • Exercise caution when sharing files: Viruses and malware can be transmitted by file-sharing software and files offered by others may not be what they say they are. Only use school-approved file-sharing options.

Parents, educators and coaches can encourage children to become involved with sports. The benefits of doing so are numerous and can lay the foundation for them to be successful in life.

Why kids should start playing sports today Children can benefit in various ways by participating in sports. These benefits, both physical and mental, can help kids in all aspects of life and even lay the groundwork for a successful transition into adulthood. Playing sports goes beyond just being physically active. Important lessons are learned on the ice, court and field. Kids who participate in sports can learn about discipline, how to handle winning and losing with grace and the importance of setting and achieving goals. Sports activities are good for the mind and spirit. They help teach children accountability, dedication, leadership, and many other skills. These

are all traits that can be used throughout life, helping people cope with the demands of life that seemingly have little do with sports. Sports also can help students in the classroom. Sports requires learning and remembering the rules of the game. These are skills that are relevant to class work or even on the job when children become adults in the workforce. Of course, a discussion of the benefits of sports play would not be complete without addressing the enormous physical benefits of participating in sports. According to the Journal of the Public Library of Science, the health benefits of playing

sports include an increase in lean body mass, an increase in basal metabolic rate and an increase in bone density, which promotes healthy body composition. Physical activity by way of sports participation may help the body strengthen over time, increase endurance, help control cholesterol levels, improve blood circulation and even lower stress levels. Scholastic sports also are a great catalyst for making friends and encouraging positive behaviour. Sports give kids an outlet for energy and a gathering place after school. Children can find like-minded individuals who have the same interests, which may help solidify yearslong relationships.

Free play in early Mature education is crucial students

Glance at a typical family schedule and you will likely see that afternoons are jampacked and many children have full itineraries of structured after-school activities. In an effort to raise wellrounded and intelligent children, many parents enrol their youngsters in all sorts of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, theatre and art. While these activities benefit kids in myriad ways, it’s also beneficial to let kids be kids and to provide ample time for them to engage in free play outside of organized activities. Structured activities can teach children how to follow rules and routines and help them build developmental skills. Free play can also improve critical skills. One of the biggest benefits to free play is it can foster kids’ creativity and help them discover their interests on their own. Free play also helps children learn independence and how to keep themselves occupied. The United Nations recognizes free play as a basic right of every child and underscores its importance. Despite this, unstructured play seems to be on the decline, with more structured activities taking over young children’s days. In a 2011 article in the American Journal of Play, Dr. Peter Gray, a researcher at Boston College, indicated that “lack of play affects emotional development, leading to the rise of anxiety, depression and problems of attention and self-control.” Gray also indicated that without play, “young people

Many working adults are returning to school to pursue new or advanced degrees, as more colleges and universities are facilitating such pursuits.

returning to school

Upon taking inventory of their lives at the start of a new year, some people entertain thoughts of returning to school. Adults who decide to return to school after a long layoff are following a popular path, be it via private colleges, Thompson Rivers University or distance learning. People return to school for various reasons, including the chance to learn new skills or further develop their existing skills. Some return to school because they are changing careers, while others may have lost a job or desire a promotion and feel that attaining a higher level of education or new skills can make reaching that goal more likely. Adults who hope to return to school might be surprised to learn the educational landscape has changed considerably since they were last in a classroom.

Free play is an important component of learning and exploration for children. A mix of structured and unstructured activities is key to raising well-rounded individuals.

fail to acquire the social and emotional skills necessary for healthy psychological development.” Free play also can benefit youngsters in the following ways: • Enables kids to learn dexterity and improve on other strengths; • Fulfills exercise requirements for growing kids; • Helps kids conquer

fears and develop confidence; • Establishes natural leadership roles and hierarchy in social groups; • Contributes to emotional well-being by giving children a respite from schedules; • Helps teach self-responsibility, which may translate to better behaviour at home and in school.

• Brass

• University students are no longer just young men and women who begin pursuing degrees right out of high school. In fact, the number of adults returning to the classroom has increased considerably, sometimes making younger students the exception, rather than the rule. • Adults who are thinking about returning to school should explore student aid opportunities to determine if they qualify for grants or scholarships. Some employers may match funds or offer some assistance to finance job training courses. • Many schools now offer online courses that make it easier for working adults to pursue their degrees.

Gone Fishing It was with great sadness that the family and friends of Colleen 'Lilly' Gibson said goodbye to her on May 2, 2019 at the Kamloops Hospice. Colleen will forever be remembered for her ability to seize every moment, and celebrate life in a 'style' that only Colleen could. Her favourite pastimes included fishing, golfing (in which she managed to hit more than just a few holes in one), gardening and spending time with her family and many friends. Colleen was a Rockstar during her battle with cancer and during her stay at the hospice she continued to embrace life, putting smiles on the faces of all the staff that were fortunate to have met her. Much appreciation to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice for being so awesome with Colleen.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightening they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. by Dylan Thomas

Your Spirit

I know that no matter what You will always be with me. When life separates us I’ll know it is only your soul Saying goodbye to your body But your spirit will be with me always. When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch I will know it is you singing to me. When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care freely I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain. When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention I will know it is you reminding me To appreciate the simple things in life. When the sun shining through my window awakens me I will feel the warmth of your love. When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill I will hear your words of wisdom And will remember what you taught me so well’ That without rain trees cannot grow Without rain flowers cannot bloom Without life’s challenges I cannot grow strong. When I look out to the sea I will think of your endless love for your family. When I think of mountains, their majesty and magnificence I will think of your courage for your country. No matter where I am Your spirit will be beside me For I know that no matter what You will always be with me. by Tram-Tiara T. Von Reichenbach

- Oct 24/Nov 22 Being outdoors has much appeal for you this week, Scorpio. Be sure to get outside and enjoy it as much as possible over the next several days.

Leo, don’t be so modest that you won’t share your recent accomplishments with those you love the most. It is okay to brag about yourself once in a while.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

Expect to work in a group setting this week, Gemini. Doing so will require you to carefully manage your time so everything can be done efficiently. Embrace others’ input and the collaborative effort.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Virgo, many people are willing to lend you a helping hand, so take them up on their offers. You will be able to repay them in time if you feel the need to reciprocate.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Make a concerted effort to ensure a certain situation is not blown out of proportion, Capricorn. Carefully examine things before offering your input.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Try to add more exercise to your routine, Aquarius. Not only will it make you feel better physically, it can clear your head and allow for alone time to do some thinking.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, your life may be a little hectic over the next few days as a deadline draws near. Eventually things will return to normal.

There is a fine line between being flexible and standing firm when you believe in your point of view, Sagittarius. Speak up if you feel strongly about your position.

month of the

September Kuromi Our KTW Timeraiser of the month for September is, in fact, September Kuromi. September brought this event to Kamloops in 2012 after seeing it in Toronto. She knew Kamloops would be a perfect fit for it, given the strong art and volunteer community for which we are known. September brought sponsors on board to pay local artists for their work and put on an art auction with live music and appies. During the event, people could bid on the pieces, but, instead of bidding money, they would bid volunteer hours for local nonprofit agencies. It was win-win for everyone. Kamloops This Week came on board as title sponsor to elevate

this unique experience, as it deserves to be. We are sad to report that September and her family have relocated to Seattle for a new opportunity. September will be at the KTW Timeraiser on Nov. 15 and we invite everyone to come and wish her well on her new venture. We are excited to announce that Michael and Jennifer O'Brien from 4Cats Art Studio are stepping in to take over as the new organizers moving forward. We know that they will bring exciting, creative new ideas to this already amazing cause. Tickets are on sale now for Nov. 15 online via event brite or at ktwtimeraiser.ca. For more information contact Mike or Jenn at 4Cats at 778-471-6335.
