The COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 a tough year for getting word out on the Wallgym, but its inventor, Antonio Ramunno, has used the time to develop a new

version of his compact fitness system to better serve people with mobility issues like his own. A motorcycle accident in October 2014 that left Ramunno paralyzed from the chest down led him to build the six-foot-high, 3.5-feet-wide device that attaches to walls to continue rehabilitation

after his physiotherapy ended. He then started selling the resistance training devices, gearing them to people with strength and mobility issues to gain more independence and to others whose equipment takes up too much space. See SECOND, A6

The project manager behind big plans — $1 billion worth of development built out over 15 years — for Tranquille said the project is “for Kamloops” and community engagement will begin in the new year. Project manager Tim McLeod lives on the property west of Kamloops Airport and has been hired by property owner British Columbia Wilderness Tours to oversee the neighbourhood plan, describing the vision for the area as an “agri-hood.” He said he has been working alongside a Lower Mainland developer, Ignition Group, conducting due diligence over the past three years. Ignition has a contract to purchase the property. To envision what is intended to be developed on the former sanatorium grounds, McLeod suggested picturing a village like Sun Rivers on Kamloops Lake and inside city boundaries, complete with residential and commercial buildings, a developer-subsidized day care (not a school, as previously reported), a community centre, a country lakefront inn, a city park, a boat launch, trails, a farm, a market and a winery. McLeod described plans for Tranquille as a family-friendly community, with 1,500 mixed housing units (from apartments to cottages)

and interesting enough to draw people. The village will include waterfront pathways, lookouts, viewpoints and enhanced access to Kamloops Lake and Tranquille River via Kamloops’ only lakefront municipal park. “We will not be calling it a tourism development because it’s a neighbourhood — a neighbourhood with a lot of interesting things that will draw tourists, absolutely,” McLeod said. He said community engagement will take place in the new year: meetings by zoom with dozens of non-profits interested in the area, consulting community partners like Tourism Kamloops, Venture Kamloops and the North Shore Business Improvement Association and public meetings. “We want to put these ideas out there and get people talking so that we have a really clear picture, because this development is for Kamloops,” McLeod said, noting many families have ties to the area. “We’re not building something for people who don’t live here … Our first thought is we’re North Shore. We have been North Shore for 100 years and we’re now redeveloping a portion of the North Shore.” Asked what has changed from previous plans for Tranquille — one that included a golf course — McLeod cited farm boundaries.

DOG LICENCES DUE

SNOW CLEARING

2021 dog licence renewals were sent in early November. Renewals are due on December 31, 2020. As per Bylaw No. 34-11, all dogs six months or older within city limits require a licence. Renew your dog licence at Bylaw Services, City Hall, or online.

Help us clear the way this winter by removing obstructions on streets such as hockey nets, basketball hoops, overhanging branches, and parked cars.

Your dog's existing tag is valid for the life of your dog. Replacement tags are available for $15 each. For details, visit: Kamloops.ca/Dogs

GET AHEAD FOR 2022! In an effort to continue to reduce its impact on the environment, remain fiscally responsibly, and improve public service, the City has updated its system to allow dog owners to register for an electronic renewal notice. Register your dog account now at: Kamloops.ca/MyCity

HERE ARE A FEW SNOW CLEARING TIPS: • When shovelling your driveway, shovel the snow to the right (when facing the road). This will minimize your windrow size by preventing the plow from dragging snow back across your driveway. • Store your shovelled snow close to your house. This prevents shovelled snow from ending up on the roadway or curb and allows for more snow storage later in the season. • DO NOT shovel snow onto the roadway or the curb. Ice builds up, which creates a driving hazard. Placing snow on the travel portion of the roadway contravenes the Road Right-of-Way Usage Bylaw and may result in a fine.

Fewer players and ice times during the pandemic did not equate to diminished charitable zeal for the Free Radicals Hockey Club. The group blew away its own record by donating $10,819 to the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund, besting the mark — $8,960 — it established last winter, a few months before the COVID-19 crisis began. “We do have a good-natured fine system within our club to keep each other buying rounds,” Kelly Shantz, who handles moneycollecting and media-relations duties for the Free Radicals, said with a laugh. “It was pointed out that some of our worst offenders are saving an awful lot of money this year. We said, ‘We know you have that extra dough in your pocket.’” The KTW Christmas Cheer Fund, which was created in 2001 by Gregg Drinnan at the Kamloops Daily News, provides money to five local organizations. Those groups change every two years, with the exception of the Y Women’s Emergency Shelter, which remains part of the fund every year, at Drinnan’s request. The other four groups involved this year are Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association, Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism, New Beginnings Stroke Recovery and Kamloops Brain Injury Association. Fining frugality is, of course, only one method for benevolence employed by the Free Radicals, who pride themselves on giving back to the community. “It became more of a priority — who we were, as opposed to having a full roster,” said

Shantz, noting the Radicals have been around since the turn of the millennium. “We’ve all benefitted from so many things in our life. We tend to hold each other to account on what we can do to give back.” Shantz was not sure how the pandemicshortened campaign would play out from a fundraising standpoint, but the club recently found itself on the verge of a record amount. “I threw it out there that our new high donator was $250,” Shantz said. “A whole bunch of guys fired off e-transfers to me to catch up. It’s just that kind of group. That’s probably what put us over the top.” The Free Radicals support a number of

other causes, including Kamloops Minor Hockey Association, United Way, First Nations Capacity Fund, Kamloops Youth Soccer Association, Alzheimer Society of B.C., Kamloops Hospice and Special Olympics BC. Shantz said the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund offers great bang for a benevolent buck. “We just passed the hat one year out of nowhere for the Christmas Cheer Fund because it seemed like a pretty easy way to support five charities,” Shantz said. “Then, like so many things in our lives, we kind of got competitive about it.” Since 2011, the Radicals have raised more than $70,000 for the Cheer Fund.

Second-generation Wallgym on way Antonio Ramunno said Wallgym business has been slow due to the pandemic, but he plans to start making videos of the Wallgym in action to replace in-person visits.

From A1

The main panel gives the user a variety of resistance and weight training exercise options through its various therabands, standing bar, free weights and strong hooks that attach each piece being used. Business to date, however, has been rather slow, with Ramunno having sold about 15 Wallgyms. “I’m still working at it. I’m just building Wallgyms, selling a couple here, couple there,” Ramunno told KTW. Pandemic-related restrictions on gatherings this year has made sales more challenging as Ramunno hasn’t been able to hold in-person demonstrations of the product in action — something that has always resulted in a sale. “Everything stopped with COVID. We weren’t allowed to go nowhere,” Ramunno said, noting he has sold five Wallgyms in 2020 and relies solely on word of mouth to generate interest. Having sold recently sold a Wallgym to The Hamlets care

DAVE EAGLES/KTW

home in Westsyde, Ramunno was preparing to do demonstrations in care homes across the city when the pandemic shut him out. “This past year with COVID has been hell,” he said. Ramunno now plans to start making videos of the Wallgym in action to replace in-person visits. “I’m trying everything I can, but it’s tough because with Wallgym, you really have to see it and do exercises on it to appreciate it,” he said. While 2020 has been tough on the Wallgym, Ramunno has now completed a prototype for a second iteration of the system, geared more toward the rehabilitation of people with disabilities.

“This Wallgym is more for people with balance problems, learning to walk, needing parallel bars — guys like me,” Ramunno said. “It’s gorgeous and it’s sitting in my mom’s kitchen.” Having designed it with the help of a physiotherapist, the second-generation Wallgym has the same dimensions of the first, but is equipped with drop-down parallel bars and a sit-to-stand assist — a specialized bracket that holds knees in place so the user doesn’t slide towards the Wallgym while attempting to stand up. It also comes with a magnetic whiteboard and a mirror on the other side to practise shaving and combing one’s hair — something that took

Ramunno two years to relearn after his accident. “I wanted to build a rehabilitation station,” he said. Ramunno has come a long way in his rehab since he was injured six years ago, having gained much more mobility, especially in the last three years. He is now able to stand and walk with the help of a walker and said he couldn’t be happier with his progress. “Every day you work towards it. Little things from big things — it’s slow, though. I’m no spring chicken, I’m 53 years old,” Ramunno said. He said he has missed going to the gym during and hasn’t worked out as much this year as he used to, though he manages to get in a couple hours of exercise a day. Ramunno splits his time working on Wallgyms between his shop at his mother’s house and a storefront location at 265 Clapperton Rd., in North Kamloops, having moved from his former Tranquille Road location. He still hopes to one day start an outpatient gym.

Thank you to the Kamloops and surrounding community for generously supporting TRU and our students in 2020. It has been a year of change and resilience, and your support has never been more appreciated than it was this year. Wishing you and your family health and happiness.

RESOLVE TO COMBAT THE COVID-19 LIES

A

s we near the end of the year, many people treat Jan. 1 as a day to recharge, recommit and rededicate themselves to various goals. There are resolutions around fitness, finances and family, but perhaps we can also consider adding a vow to combat the menace of misinformation and outright lies that seem to have grown more annoying as the COVID-19 pandemic arrived. We have long been accustomed to Flat Earth types who have been warning for decades that a New World Order with Illuminati undertones is about to take control of our lives. Such claims continue to be made, yet never seem to materialize. Add to that roster of ridiculousness those who either believe the COVID-19 pandemic is a hoax or that COVID-19 exists, but is no more dangerous than the average flu — and those who rail against the safety and effectiveness of the disease’s vaccines. The Centre for Countering Digital Hate has created some solid advice in how the more rational among us should react to those we know who embrace the various pandemic-related conspiracy theories spreading on social media. This includes not engaging with anti-vaxx misinformation online, even to rebut it or criticise it, because doing so only spreads the misinformation to new audiences. (To be clear, “anti-vaxxer” refers to people who have made a conscious decision to use their online platforms to campaign against vaccines and spread misinformation about them. They differ from “vaccine-hesitant” people, which include those who are unsure whether they will get a vaccine and from those who simply have questions or concerns about new COVID19 vaccines.) Other advice includes correcting misinformation from family and friends privately and getting vaccinated and sharing true, scientific-based information about the importance of vaccines. More information is online at counterhate.co.uk.

Sad souls of Nicola Street

H

aving grown up in Kamloops, I used to idealize Nicola Street. I have called it the most beautiful street in town and dreamt of living in one of its heritage homes, which boast large mature trees — a rarity in this city — within a stone’s throw of the Kamloops Farmers’ Market, the downtown core and church bells that ring. It’s not the whole story, however. Sad souls roam Nicola Street. As the public again turns its attention to the perpetual parking problem at Royal Inland Hospital parking, I add another voice to the exhaustive conversation, having had a revelatory experience about year ago. It was the first week of January, when the novel coronavirus still seemed a distant threat, and I left work to meet my husband at the hospital on a weekday afternoon. We were first-time parents-tobe attending our first ultrasound appointment. I thought I had left enough time to get downtown to find a parking spot in advance of our appointment, but found myself winding down RIH’s Clinical Services Building, floor by floor, running out of time and luck. There wasn’t a single stall to be found, forcing me back onto Columbia Street before I looped around and eventually found a parking spot on Nicola Street, a block from the Kamloops Y. I still had to run the rest of the way get to the appointment. (It is unclear how patients in a wheelchair or with limited mobility would get to their appointments on time in similar circumstances.) I made it to the ultrasound appointment, albeit slightly dishevelled, without time to consider my full bladder nor the horror that awaited. There was unexpected bad news. No heartbeat could be detected and development stopped just shy of six weeks. They call them “silent” or “missed” miscarriages because the embryo or fetus has stopped developing, but has not been

expelled. One often experiences no symptoms and doesn’t know something is wrong until a radiologist discovers it during a routine appointment. We didn’t know and the news was devastating. One’s mind had not even yet truly arrived at the hospital appointment, due to the chaos that ensued over the seemingly simple act of parking one’s vehicle. Then, so many questions and grief immediately chiseled its own parking space in our hearts because, in our minds, we were already parents. I grappled with sharing this story, considering the pain 2020 has inflicted on many. Surely we don’t need another sad tale. I buried some of the pain myself, but as bad luck would have it, I miscarried again this year, just before Thanksgiving. The pain still twinges as I write these words, as we continue to wait our turn to become parents. In discussing this openly, however, I considered our gratitude for the brave and kind people who told us their personal stories of pregnancy loss — family, friends, health-care professionals and strangers — and how much it helped us to understand we are not alone, that it is common and it is not our fault. The issue also surfaced recently, following a New York Times opinion piece written by Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, during which she discussed her miscarriage and wisely advised the simple human act of asking people during these trying times: “Are you OK?”

I believe miscarriage is stigmatized and many suffer in silence while simultaneously inundated with pictures of perfection on social media. It’s not easy. Perhaps a good first step could be moving the chapter about miscarriages from the back of the baby development books and into a more prominent place. At the hospital, the doctor and technician kindly allowed us as much time necessary before we left the ultrasound room, where bad news remained in the air, so thick that it forced choked-back tears. The reality, however, is everyone has to leave at some point and, suddenly, the vehicle parked on Nicola Street felt miles away. I cried with my husband in the ultrasound room. Tears streamed in the hallway past the emergency department as blurry faces passed us by. I wept in the elevator, where we held hands alongside strangers in a world that had yet to practise physical distancing. I sobbed on the busy corner of Columbia Street and Third Avenue, waiting for the light to change at about the time classes would have been ending at nearby St. Ann’s Academy. There were no masks behind which to hide and I still wonder who saw us while driving by. In the words of my husband — they chewed us up and spit us out onto the street during one of the most devastating moments of our lives. We might as well have been holding a placard that said, “We just had a miscarriage.” I cried walking down Nicola Street, amongst the tall, beautiful trees, with dreams of raising children in one of those heritage homes quashed. I still love those old houses. It’s still a beautiful place to live. But I know now the neighbourhood is not that perfect, idyllic place once envisioned. Sad souls roam Nicola Street. Their stories whistle through the leaves and shriek when the church bells ring. Who knows how far they’ve walked? jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

CITY COUNCIL FAILS TO LISTEN CITY BLESSED WITH SPEED CONTROL HOLES Editor: Thumpity, thumpity, thump, thump, thump is the sound of driving in Kamloops — with the occasional bang, or BANG. Instead of labelling them potholes, how about speed control holes? If you have a small vehicle, it will be shaken to pieces. And, while weaving over the lane to avoid holes, the police may think you are drunk and pull you over. At least the city managed to fix many holes and areas in the fall. Ray Jones Kamloops

MUSIC TO OUR EARS

Editor: Thank you to the gentleman who performed an impromptu trumpet concert of Christmas carols in front of Ponderosa Place earlier this month. What a terrific way to spread cheer in this difficult holiday season. Thank you again for reminding us of the true spirit of Christmas. Sylvia Gandy Kamloops

Editor: Kamloops council has failed to listen to residents of Dallas Drive after an overwhelming negative response to the proposed modification to the covenant of 7750 Dallas Dr. to allow for construction of a restaurant and gas bar. The city mailed out 163 notices and received 99 responses that were opposed to the proposal. There was also a 54-name petition against the plan. The covenant has been in place for 20 years for a reason — and for council to ignore residents is a slap in their collective face. What is the point of asking the resi-

dents of Dallas Drive, who will be directly affected by the development, if city council was just going to ignore them? The Dallas Community Association did not have an official stance on the project because the developer didn’t engage the group, yet Coun. Dale Bass claimed the association was in favour. The association was not asked because it does not have an address within 100 metres of the development. We, the residents of Dallas Drive, moved to this area to have a relatively quiet lifestyle. We don’t need a car wash, restaurant, excessive lighting and more truck traffic all hours of the day and night.

The address of the property on which council has approved removal of the covenant, 7750 Dallas Dr., is less than 300 yards from an existing card lock, gas station, eat-in restaurant and pizza parlour. We don’t need to look like downtown Kamloops. If city council truly cared about what residents want, perhaps council should look at having the property developed from light industrial to residential. The plan should be for more housing, not the addition of a gas station, car wash and restaurant. Carrie Hubert Kamloops

MIGHT IT BE TIME TO SHIFT OUR THINKING? Editor: We saw some beautiful sunrises earlier this month. shortly after 7:30 a.m. Sunsets were equally glorious, coming at about 4 p.m. However, I can’t help but think how much darker this winter would have been for people heading to work for 8:30 a.m. — not to mention kids heading to school — if we hadn’t all turned our clocks back earlier this fall. Had the provincial government gone ahead with its plans to eliminate the fall time change, most people would be heading to work or school entirely in the dark from late November to early

February. (You can check out sunrise and sunset times for Kamloops yourself online at timeanddate.com.) And for those who work until 5 p.m. or later, the only chance to see the sun at all on work days might be during a lunch hour walk.

We all find the time change trying, but those twice-annual clock adjustments might be preferable to living with no sunlight at all on winter mornings. One way to solve this problem, you might be thinking, would be to leave the clocks

at their current settings yearround. However, this option for avoiding the time change also has a significant drawback — unbearably early sunrises in the summer months. I shudder to think of tent camping in July, with the sun rising at 4 a.m. For those with small children, the 5 a.m. summer wake-up times are probably early enough. One way or another, if the province decides to go ahead with eliminating the time change, it might be a good time to invest in either solar lamps or blackout blinds. Nichole Rae Kamloops

PICTURING THE YEAR OF THE PANDEMIC

I

t has been a year like no other for most people — living through a once-in-a-century global pandemic. What began as curious reports of an unusual virus in Wuhan, China, in January quickly became the defining public health emergency of our time. What was in February idle speculation about possible, though improbable, cancellations of events grew into confirmation that the pandemic — declared by the World Health Organization on March 11 — was indeed a reality, with far-reaching consequences we continue to experience today. All sports came to a halt. Even before the pandemic was officially declared as such, events were cancelled, including the March 4 arts centre referendum in Kamloops. Businesses closed their doors, schools and universities moved to online classes and, as the months went by, various public health orders were implemented, including mandatory mask wearing, mandatory physical distancing and gatherings now restricted to household members. On these two pages, we feature images that have captured the pandemic’s impact in Kamloops, pictures taken by KTW photographers Dave Eagles and Allen Douglas. ON THIS PAGE, CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: In April, Interior Health set up a COVID-19 testing station for the city’s homeless behind the Kamloops United Church downtown. Chauni Johnson of Interior Health makes her way to the spot where her colleagues were setting up; Signs saluting health-care workers are still visible at Royal Inland Hospital; Even pandemics bring out conspiracy theorists; Some customers at Costco don masks in late April, months before wearing masks in stores became mandatory; Uncle Chris the Clown performs at a distance for Karly Marshall on her sixth birthday.

Food Bank face mask donor mystery solved BROCKLEHURST RESIDENT CORRI-ANN TROKE AND HER LATE FATHER HARRY LOERKEM TOGETHER SEWED 550 MASKS WITH 250 DELIVERED TO THE LOCAL FOOD BANK BEFORE HE DIED UNEXPECTEDLY IN OCTOBER JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

A

couple of weeks ago, two boxes of handmade, Christmas-patterned masks appeared at the Kamloops Food Bank. The colourful fabric face coverings featured images of poinsettias, Santa Claus, Christmas trees, toys and presents. Two-hundred-and-fifty of the masks have since been distributed to food bank clients, volunteers, staff and supporters. The only question was: Who dropped them off? “When we saw them, they kind of appeared, we’re like, ‘Where did these come from? Who made these? Who dropped these off? We need to know more,’” said Kamloops Food Bank director of resource development Corra Gassner. “They’re so beautiful. We were just so surprised and so impressed with the quality, the pattern. They’re just very special and you could tell somebody put a lot of love and attention into creating these.” To find their secret Santa, the social agency turned to social media. The mysterious, merry mask maker was not on Facebook. However, with the way word spreads

From left: Corra Gassner, Kamloops Food Bank’s director resource development; Julianna Bissonnette, the food bank’s office co-ordinator; mask maker Corri-Ann Troke and Bernadette Siracky, the food bank’s executive director.

online, it didn’t take long to track down 59-year-old Brocklehurst resident CorriAnn Troke, who told KTW she dropped off the Christmas masks, along with twodozen coffee mugs filled with treats, during the first week of December. Troke was not anticipating fanfare and was surprised to learn of the search to find her. “I just figured that you donate things and away you go,” Troke said. As it turns out, however, the masks have meaning. Creation of the face coverings was a pandemic pastime spanning two generations, one of which has since passed away. Troke spent the better part of 2020 sewing up a storm as a member of Sew the Curve. Her father, Harry Loerkem, eventually joined his daughter in the effort, sewing

masks and giving them away to those in need of a cloth face covering during a global pandemic. Loerkem was very particular with his sewing, trimming the threads and the ends in a tidy fashion. Sewing united father and daughter with visits, conversation and some friendly competition. “It was great conversation. It kept us busy, knowing that we were doing something valuable, worthwhile, that we could share with others,” Troke said. The two of them sewed nearly 3,000 masks and it was Loerkem who sewed most of the 550 Christmas masks the two created for the holidays — including the 250 delivered to the food bank — before he died unexpectedly, due to heart complications, at the end of October. He was 87. Troke said the idea behind the Christmas masks was to put a “Christmas smile” on people’s faces. “My dad always was kind, thoughtful, giving,” Troke said, noting he was generous in humble and quiet ways. “If he had something, he could share it with you or me. He would do it — no questions asked. He was very proud to be doing these masks, right from the beginning.” Gassner and others at the food bank met Troke this week and learned of the story behind the masks. “It was so nice,” Gassner said. “She was so kind, such a beautiful soul. It was so nice to learn more about her father,

who was a big part of it. He just sounds like such a special human, as well. It was a real heart-warmer, just something that moved us here at the food bank.”

When local businesswoman Diana Christianson walked in to Kamloops Food Bank recently, resource development manager Corra Gasser had no idea what to expect. She was presented with a $10,000 cheque. “We were absolutely blown away,” Gasser said. When asked what prompted the donation, Christianson explained, she has had a “very good year” and, through the sale of her business, Pogue Mahone pub, she was able to direct some of that toward the community. Christianson also donated $4,000 to the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund.

Since Christmas Eve, B.C. has seen 2,206 new cases of COVID-19 and 74 more deaths from the disease. While the figure presented on Tuesday by Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is in the thousands, the daily new case counts reported were below average, only rising above 500 new cases in a single 24-hour period once, on Christmas Day. The number of new cases reported on Tuesday was the lowest, at 382. A total of 50,815 British Columbians have now been diagnosed with COVID-19. Of those, 41,175 have recovered, 7,580 remain active and 882

On Dec. 27, an outbreak was declared at the Heritage Square long-term care home, and another on Dec. 28 at Noric House. With New Year’s Eve ahead, Henry reminded British Columbians that orders prohibiting events and limiting social gatherings to members of single households, remain in effect. “We must do without the usual house parties or celebrations this year,” she said. “We must focus on doing our part to ensure safe and good health for all of us.”

Looking to the year ahead Goodbye 2020! Like many, we are looking forward to the New Year, new beginnings and brighter skies in 2021. This is also the time of year we often set goals for the year ahead. In keeping with this theme, we wanted to provide a financial planning checklist. In no particular order: 1. What is your savings strategy? Are you saving enough to achieve your goals? If your income has changed, have you adjusted your savings accordingly? Which is better for you: RSP or TFSA? Should you be making use of a spousal RSP? Are you maximizing "free money" such as top-ups some employers offer on group RSPs and stock matching programs? RESPs are another great strategy where government ads 20% in grants towards your (grand)child's education. 2. Investment Performance & Fees: 2020 may bring a mixed bag in terms of investment results and we feel there is no better time to review how your investments have performed against your goals. Group plans through work are often overlooked. Understanding the fees you are paying along with other services you are receiving - estate planning,

tax minimization and retirement planning to name a few. 3. Reduce your income taxes: For this article, we will keep brief. We believe there are three key strategies for income taxes: Defer: Contribute to tax sheltered plan (RSP, RESP, RDSP) Deduct: Investment fees, union dues, interest, RSPs and make use of credits like medical, pension, old age, etc. Divide: Income splitting, contribute to a spousal RSP or use Trusts and family loans. Tax professionals can help ensure you are making the most of all strategies, including any COVID-related tax breaks. 4. Review your debts: Given low interest rates, there might be an opportunity to consolidate debts or renew your mortgage early at reduced rates. Most real estate values have increased making refinancing easier. This can potentially save thousands in interest a year or free up hundreds of dollars a month in cash flow that can accelerate debt reduction or be redirected to other goals. 5. Are you protecting what matters most? A 2019 report from policyadvisors.com reported a staggering 90% of Canadians are underinsured. Should something happen to you, will you and your family be financially ok? We recommend reviewing your life, disability (if working), and critical illness insurance coverage at a

minimum. In addition, don't forget to review property insurances like residential, rental, recreational and automotive. 6. Review your Will: When was it last updated? Who is your executor, do they still have capacity or desire, where do they live, and do you have an alternate? Out of province executors can lead to complications. We suggest sharing an overview of your wishes with your family but not necessarily all the details and specifics. For example: who your executor is and location of the Will. With blended families often being the norm these days, we feel estate planning requires extra attention and care. 7. Power of Attorney (POA): While a Will cares for your wishes once you are gone, a POA typically empowers someone to act on your behalf while you are alive but no longer able. We recommend exploring advanced care directives which lays out your health care wishes. These topics can be complex and, as always, we strongly encourage seeking the advice of a trusted professional to help with your personal circumstance. Our recommendation is make a list of priorities with a deadline to action. Happy New Year and best wishes in 2021! Written by Keith Until next time… Invest Well. Live Well.

Jade boulder recovered intact after daring theft BARBARA RODEN

ASHCROFT CACHE CREEK JOURNAL

Ashcroft RCMP have recovered a jade boulder weighing more than 2,850 pounds that was stolen from outside the Cariboo Jade Shop in Cache Creek on Dec. 19. “The jade boulder was recovered intact,” said Sgt. Darren Angman of the Ashcroft detachment. “We have identified suspects and the investigation is still ongoing.” Angman said no arrests had been made as of Tuesday (Dec. 29) and that the investigation is ongoing, as police are still trying to tie the theft to the suspects. Heidi Roy, whose family owns the Jade Shop and whose father Ben installed the boulder outside the shop in 1985, is thrilled that it has been recovered. “We are so happy to have it back in one piece, although with a few scars from its adventure,” she said. “Thank you to all of you who have been keeping an eye out and sending in tips, as well as kind words of sympathy and encouragement received from across the country. It is clear that this stone meant a lot to many more people than we realized.” Two Ashcroft residents who were returning from Kamloops spotted a pickup truck towing a flat-deck trailer with an excavator on it as it left the Jade Shop parking lot at 11:55 p.m. on Dec. 19. They saw the boulder on the flat-deck and pursued the truck, which was heading east on Highway 1 toward Kamloops. They called 9-1-1 to report the incident, but turned around after a man thought to be associated with the theft threw a boul-

der at them near the Ghost of Walhachin pullout east of Cache Creek. Jarrett Fitzpatrick, who was driving the vehicle, said that although the damage to his vehicle “sucked,” he would do it again to try to catch the thieves. He wanted to give a big thanks to Bill Elliott and the Cariboo Jade Shop, who contacted him to say that they would pay his deductible for the repairs. “The fact that I was going to have to pay my deductible really sucked right before Christmas (what a way to end the worst year ever lol),” he wrote in a message to the Ashcroft Cache Creek Journal. “However, Bill and the Jade Shop have stepped up and phoned me to let me know that they will be covering it for me. To some people it might not seem like much, but to someone like me, it is so appreciated.” Police have now determined that at 9:45 p.m. on Dec. 19, the pickup truck, trailer and excavator were at a hotel parking lot next door to the Jade Shop. At approximately 11:05 p.m. a man was seen walking to the

truck, which then drove to the Jade Shop, where the excavator was used to lift the jade boulder onto the trailer. The suspect vehicle was later seen turning around on the Deadman-Vidette Road, approximately 32 kilometres off Highway 1 west of Savona. Kamloops RCMP later found the trailer abandoned in Kamloops, but the excavator and boulder were gone. On Dec. 21, Chase RCMP located an abandoned truck matching the pickup truck used in the theft. The boulder has been a much-loved and photographed attraction in Cache Creek since it was installed outside the Jade Shop. Despite its size, its commercial value is minimal, as it is composed of low-quality jade. Roy, however, said it is of great historic and sentimental value to Cache Creek. “I’m seeing comments from all over the province and the world from people who took a picture of the rock, saying how much it meant to them,” she said shortly after the boulder was stolen.” To us, it’s priceless.”

Reached by KTW for a Where Are They Now profile, former Cache Creek mayor and Thompson-Nicola Regional District chair John Ranta said he is no longer much of a newsmaker. The 73-year-old former politician, who resides in a duplex in Cache Creek with wife Carmen, is effectively retired and has been abiding by public health orders that have kept him largely at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. In lieu of perusing council and regional district agendas, Ranta these days sifts through honey-do lists. “Working around the house,” the handyman said. “Trying to get some of the projects that my wife has identified done.” Quick-witted Ranta offers quips, but few details, when asked how he is doing. He is “better than nothing on a cold night” and also “trying to stay alive.” Among details left open

The next civic elections will take place in October 2022. “I don’t have any plans at the present time, but it’s not something I would rule out,” Ranta said. “Every time I go to the post office, I bump into somebody that suggests that I should run again.” One thing is clear — Ranta misses politics. Specifically, he said he misses the opportunity to serve and make things better for people he represents. He does not feel like he dodged a bullet, with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, he alluded to experience gleaned from past wildfire emergencies, in 2013 and 2017, which he called “huge challenges.” “You deal with the situation as it arises and do your best to deal with it appropriately,” Ranta said.

vaccines and wearing masks and social distancing and all that sort of stuff,” he said. Regardless of whether he again seeks office, Ranta will do his part in leading by example — following public health orders by staying home and tackling his honey-do list one project at a time. “I’m putting a new bathtub in right now,” Ranta noted.

A thorough risk assessment of Chilcotin and Thompson steelhead trout has confirmed the results of a previous survey declaring the fish at risk of extinction. The latest findings mean the fish will again be considered for listing under the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Last year, the federal government declined to list the steelhead after the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada submitted the findings of a rare emergency assessment. The government said protection under SARA would be prohibition-based and therefore not lead to timely, proactive steps to increase the species’ productivity. In its 2020 Species Assessments, released in November, the committee again looked at the Interior Fraser steelhead, but this time under its regular process with heightened scrutiny and peer-reviewed conclusions. Although the findings are the same as 2018 — “endangered” — standard procedure will push the file back to the government for SARA consideration. “The conclusion really does not change anything about the status of these fish. It confirms their status as endangered,” committee chair John Reynolds said. “But I honestly think we could lose both of these populations within a couple of steelhead generations unless something changes.” In lieu of a SARA listing, the federal and provincial governments announced in July 2019

a joint action plan to reduce fishing-related mortality, remove significant barriers to migration and reduce ongoing habitat destruction. Additional measures are being taken over the longer term to remediate degraded habitat. Options are also being explored to address the causes of natural mortality, such as seal predation, and to augment wild populations with hatchery fish. A SARA listing would make it illegal to kill, harm, harass or capture steelhead, triggering new protections and disrupting or shutting down legal salmon fisheries for First Nations and the commercial sector. To limit bycatch of the endangered fish, the province wants the federal government to implement 77 days of closures on salmon fisheries, protecting 95 per cent of steelhead during their 82-day run time. Last season, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans issued closures for just 27 days, which the province said DFO plans to do again next year. “These measures fall short of the level of protection needed

to give the species a chance to recover,” an e-mail from the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource operations and Rural Development reads. Bob Hooton, a retired biologist and fisheries section head for the B.C. Ministry of Environment, now a writer and steelhead advocate, said the crisis will continue as fisheries are allowed to remain open while steelhead are migrating. “Down tools. There’s no way around it,” he said. “If there’s one thing that’s completely under our control, it’s managing the harvest. It’s the most immediate and most effective thing you can do for any fishery.” In the next few weeks, the province plans to unveil a new online platform to improve public access to the current management information, science fact sheets and progress updates on steelhead populations. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada will submit its full report to the federal government in the fall of 2021. –— with files from AshcroftCache Creek Journal

THIS YEAR, VOLUNTEER COVID-19 cases at Sun Peaks, city school KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Four cases of COVID19 have been confirmed

in Sun Peaks — all involving staff at the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel. The hotel issued a

statement, noting the cases are all related to social interactions outside the workplace,

adding that no guests have been impacted as of Dec. 27. The four people who

have tested positive, along with their close contacts, are in selfisolation.

“The health and safety of our staff, guests and community is the top priority, now and always,” the hotel said in the statement. “While we are in communication with health authorities on all protocols, we have diligently prepared for this type of scenario over the past nine months and have robust policies and procedures in place to effectively manage the situation.” On Saturday, Dec. 26, Sun Peaks Health Centre medical director Dr. Shane Barclay informed the resort community of the positive tests. Earlier this month, Barclay said it was only a matter of time until Sun Peaks began being impacted by this second wave of COVID-19. His comments came after the Big White ski resort near Kelowna was the sit of an outbreak that has led to more than 70 cases. “It’s not a question of if, but when we’re going to start seeing positive cases,” Barclay told the Sun Peaks Independent News in this story.

Meanwhile, there has been a potential COVID-19 exposure at Rayleigh elementary in Kamloops. Interior Health said the possible exposure occurred on Dec. 17 and Dec. 18, the final two days of class before winter break began. It is the fifth school in the KamloopsThompson school district to have potential exposures, with the other four alerts ending with no further cases arising from the person or persons who tested positive for the disease. Interior Health will determine close contacts connected to the person or persons when they were potentially infectious. Those people will be told to self-isolate for 14 days, while staff and students who do not receive a phone call or letter from Interior Health are advised to continue to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms using the BC COVID19 Health Assessment Tool.

Firm concerned about food delivery fee freeze JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A local food delivery company is worried about competition and long-term impacts on the restaurant industry following a decision by the province to cap fees charged to restaurants by large meal delivery companies like Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats. The province this week announced an emergency order to place a temporary cap on fees charged to restaurants from food delivery companies at 15 per cent. Other fees for use of the service, like online ordering and processing fees, are being capped at five per cent. The move is

not anticipated to impact delivery driver wages or tips. Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said the caps are expected to be in place for three months after the provincial state of emergency, in place because of the pandemic, is lifted. Mitchie’s Delivery opened in Kamloops in part out of recognition that those big companies charged high fees. Mitchie’s co-owner Sean Martin said the fee cap does not impact his firm’s fees because the policy is aimed at large delivery companies serving 500 or more restaurants and what he called “predatory” behaviour toward restaurants. Martin said Mitchie’s

Kendall gets QC designation KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kamloops lawyer Kathy Kendall is among 26 legal eagles to being honoured with the Queen’s counsel (QC) designation for their contributions to B.C.’s justice system through their work. Kendall, who was called to the bar in 1984, has largely practised in family and child protection law through the Legal Services Society from 1985 to 2010. Since 2010, she has been self-employed in the family law domain as lead family duty counsel in Kamloops. Throughout her career, Kendal has been involved in education and service, including as a sessional lecturer at Thompson Rivers University and serving on various boards, including the Board of the Law Foundation. She was the founding chair of the Kamloops Women Lawyers Forum and has also volunteered internationally. “I want to congratulate each of these extraordinary lawyers and thank them for their contributions to British Columbia and

already charges just slightly higher than 15 per cent. Martin said the move by the province benefits restaurants now struggling amid the pandemic. The negative side, he said, is Mitchie’s has lost its competitive edge. Martin said the new rules mean a small business in Kamloops like his is effectively competing

price-wise with the likes of Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats, large multinational corporations with marketing budgets that could crush a company like Mitchie’s. Restaurants in Kamloops had so far rejected Uber Eats due to the exorbitant fees. Martin said a concern is that the larger fooddelivery companies will

lower their fees temporarily as ordered by government and snuff out smaller operations before ultimately raising their fees once the government policy expires. He fears the end result will be the killing off of small businesses and higher delivery costs for restaurants in the longterm. “I think a lot of people

to the legal profession,” Attorney General David Eby in a release. “Each one of them is deserving of the honour of the Queen’s counsel title for demonstrating dedication, integrity and exceptional commitment to their careers and community.” Potential candidates for the QC designation must be members of the B.C. bar for a minimum of five years and be nominated by their peers. An advisory committee reviews the applications and makes recommendations to the attorney general. There were 136 nominations submitted for an honorary QC title in 2020. Only seven per cent of practising B.C. lawyers can be awarded the designation of QC at any given time.

Mitchel Hughes, said the first year has been “fantastic” due to community support. “The community has really rallied around a local business,” he said. In addition to lower fees, Martin and Hughes said they differentiate themselves through customer service.

McLeod said the Agricultural Land Commission and landowners have been discussing plans for the area for three decades and an agreement was made to exclude land in the area from the Agricultural Land Reserve in exchange for farm restoration. He said the 2012 neighbourhood plan for the area captured that agreement and was supported by the ALC. The need to settle farm boundaries remained and was intended to be hashed out when plans moved forward, McLeod said. “What makes this different today is we’ve now reached out to the Agricultural Land Commission staff over the past year and then we put a formal application in to the commission to start the process on finally settling the farm boundary,” he said. “What we said we would like to do is take some land that sits outside of the Agricultural Land Reserve and put it inside the reserve and, in exchange, take out some land in the reserve to add to the development.” McLeod said the exchange

results in a small increase in developable area — about 1.5 hectares. McLeod said this was done to bring development closer together for infrastructure finance purposes, make the farm more cohesive and avoid development in an archaeologically rich area. McLeod said the property owner, British Columbia Wilderness Tours, was never and is not a development company. He said its intention has always been to find a development company to take the project forward, noting it’s taken a decade to find a development company that “has the time and energy to do the proper investigation and has deep enough pockets.” Asked to address those concerned about loss of agricultural land, McLeod agreed it is an important concern, but noted mixed-use farm plans for the area, built around food sovereignty. He said 25 per cent of the land will be developed, with the remainder agriculture, riparian and natural space. Other environmental considerations include a possible wild salmon spawning channel and hatchery.

“We started this spring bringing a cow-calf onto the property to start regenerating our soils. … One needs to look at agriculture and soils and microclimates and how do you bring all of that together to make the farm the most productive possible — and this is what we’ve done,” McLeod said “On the flip side, to make the development work, we’ve also had to be very careful to make sure that that financially works because that development will pay for the farm. “We’re setting aside, I think it’s about a $3-million investment into our farm alone and our amenities, which we call our farm. And all the things you and I have chatted about, those will be done at the front end of the project. Most developers don’t do that and we do. So I think that will be a pretty exciting thing.” McLeod said the property is a brownfield, dating back to B.C. government ownership in the 1980s. From 1907 to 1958, Tranquille was home to a tuberculosis sanatorium. From 1958 to 1983, it was used as an institution for the mentally disabled. See IGNITION, A21

Ignition Group set to develop Tranquille property From A20

Since that time, McLeod said, no maintenance has taken place in the buildings and no infrastructure added. He said one hurdle to developing the area in the past has been the cost to remove the old buildings. The plan now is to deconstruct, rather than demolish, the buildings to reduce the number of trucks with building materials leaving the site and allowing for reuse of materials, including crushing concrete for road base. McLeod said clear safety protocols by WorkSafe BC guide handling of asbestos materials. Asked what costs will be born by the city, McLeod said water and sewer will be paid for by the developer, as will an extension of Tranquille Road

and construction of two crossings over Tranquille River. McLeod said existing farm irrigation infrastructure will be upgraded with new pipe inside existing pipe to reduce environmental impact.

A separate well water system will be utilized for drinking water. Treatment of river water for drinking is too expensive, McLeod said, and testing at Tranquille revealed a prolific aquifer with

HOLMES IS WHERE THE On the eve of the last day of 2020, it is a time when many people plan to start fresh in the new year. Rather than listing resolutions for dating, someone sent me a link from mental health advocates on Instagram, called The 8 Uncomfortable Truths We All Need To Accept. These can give us time to reflect on our relationships, where we are at in them or things we need to work on. I am sure several of these will resonate and my wish for you in 2021 is to be your best self mentally and physically, which will be the ideal way to enter a partnership. 1. Happiness is where you are now — or nowhere at all. It’s not a new relationship, it’s not a new job, it’s not a completed goal and it’s not a new car. Until you give up on the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are. 2. Contrary to popular opinion, quitting is for winners. Knowing when to quit, change direction, leave a toxic situation, demand more from life or give up on something that isn’t working and move on is a very important skill that people who win at life seem to have. But don’t quit because it’s hard, Quit because it sucks. 3. If they really wanted to, they would. If you apply pressure, they’ll do what you want them to

do. If you take the pressure off, you’ll see what they’d rather do. Never waste your life fighting what someone would rather do Let them go. Move on. Do better. 4. Taking no risk is the biggest risk. You have to risk failure to succeed. You have to risk rejection to be accepted. You have to risk heartbreak to love. If you’re always avoiding risk, you’re risking missing out on life. 5. Call yourself out. The most common reason people keep making the same mistakes is because their insecure ego prevents them from taking responsibility for their own chaos, their own toxic traits and their own mistakes. You have to call yourself out. Calling yourself out means you care more about your future, your progress and your happiness than just protecting your ego.

discussion, too, about this idea of urban sprawl,” McLeod said. Again, I’d just like to sit down with people and talk about it because this is not urban sprawl from a classic planning perspective. It’s actually redevelopment of the North Shore and the carbon footprint we expect here, we’re working to make it as low as possible.” If the ALC approves the application, the project will go to the city for development plans. McLeod said timelines are expected to be impacted by COVID-19.

WHO IS BEHIND THE SCENES: • Development company Ignition Group, based out of the Lower Mainland, has an arrangement with the current property owner, British Columbia Wilderness Tours, to purchase the property and put forward the development infrastructure. McLeod explained

6. Closure is your choice. Closure isn’t an apology or justice or answers. That’s insecurity. If the situation made you feel awful, seeking closure by reopening it is insanity. Closure isn’t something they can give you. Closure is moving on. Closure is your choice. 7. If you’re happy alone, you’ll be happier together. There is no type of affection that can fill the void in a person who doesn’t already love their self. There is no independence in dependency. There is no personal security in attaching yourself to a secure person. Until you have a healthy relationship with yourself, you won’t make healthy decisions about someone else. 8. It’s not your job to fix damaged people. Your responsibility to help someone will never outweigh their responsibility to help themselves. But it’s worth asking yourself why you resonated so strongly with someone that desperately needed “fixing” in the first place. Often, our own toxic romantic and non-romantic attachments tell a story about an issue we have within ourselves.

JOB SAID, “MISERABLE COMFORTERS ARE YE ALL”

T

he book of Job is the Bible account of an Old Testament believer who went through a very difficult sequence of events. Job was tested like very few have ever experienced in life. There came to Job some of his acquaintances to speak to him in his suffering. After seven days of silence before him they began to speak one by one. Their speaking was of no help to Job, so Job told them, as recorded in Job 16:2: “I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all.” These men who spoke to Job in his suffering were blaming him for his trouble. In other words they were saying, “it’s your fault Job, you’re to blame for your

JOHN EGGERS You Gotta Have FAITH own trouble.” They had no real compassion to offer Job. They truly were miserable comforters. One thing that is obvious about these men was they had never gone through what Job was going through. They couldn’t relate to him in his suffering. There are two words in the English language that are similar but different. The words are sympathy and empathy. Sympathy is a feeling of compassion toward one in suffering, whereas empathy is entering into the suffering of another with a desire to help. That’s a simplistic

to help in time of need. Jesus is able to help because he has gone through the things of life’s sorrows and trials. He certainly is not a miserable comforter like those who were with Job. He is deeply sympathetic and one of greatest empathy. Up till now, this article has been directed to believers in their struggles. I want to say something to those who have not trusted the Saviour yet. This tremendous compassion and love for believers is not the limit of the love of God. In 1 Peter 2:24, we read concerning the suffering of the Lord Jesus on the cross. “Who His own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree.” The Lord Jesus felt the full load of God’s punishment for our sins while He was on the cross. God’s everlasting love for us is seen at the cross in the giving of His son for us. In Galatians 2:20, Paul wrote of,“the Son

of God who loved me and gave himself for me.” Paul, who was a persecutor of the early Christians, had a dramatic conversion to Christ and was transformed into a tremendous preacher of the Gospel, which he once hated. Before Paul’s conversion, he was present at the martyrdom of the first recorded martyr and was encouraging the killing of Stephen. It is no secret that the love of God goes out to whosoever will, and there is great forgiveness still to be found through the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us.

definition but it conveys the thought that the one who is empathetic is more able to comfort others in their suffering. The last two verses of Hebrews, chapter four, tell us of the Lord Jesus who is touched with the feelings of our infirmities. The reason for this ability to relate to our difficulties is that He has been here on this Earth and experienced life’s testing. He is therefore able to relate to our difficulties and be truly empathetic toward us. As today’s saying goes, He has been here and done that already. The writer of Hebrews is emphatic that Jesus never sinned in all His time down here. Verse 15 of chapter four says, He was tested in all points like as we are, yet without sin. The Hebrew believers are then exhorted in verse 16 to come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace

LOEWEN CO-AUTHORS CHILDREN’S BOOK

Former Kamloops Blazers’ captain Jermaine Loewen (left) was always a hit with kids during elementary school visits in the Tournament Capital. Perhaps his next trip to Kamloops will include a reading of Ari’s Awful Day/Mainer’s Move, a two-books-inone read that can be purchased now online at amazon.ca.

ermaine Loewen’s professional hockey career came to a screeching halt in March, a rookie campaign pre-empted by the pandemic. At the same time, Black Lives Matter protests and social justice movements were captivating the public eye and the attention of Loewen, a Jamaican-born orphan who was adopted at age three

and moved to Canada when he was five. In a time rife with uncertainty, at least one thing was clear — it was time to write a book. NHLPA agent Ray Petkau, a father of four and CEO of Alpha Hockey Inc., approached author/ illustrator Thom van Dycke last spring with an idea for a series of hockey-themed children’s books. Ari The Lion Books is the result of the partnership. Loewen, the former Kamloops Blazers’ captain who is represented by Petkau, jumped on board

in the summer to co-author the debut offering, Ari’s Awful Day/ Mainer’s Move, which consists of two stories that start on opposite sides of the book and meet in the middle. “We switched up the whole book, changed the way it was written because of all the things happening with BLM,” Loewen said. “People were talking about it, but it felt like we needed to do something that was tangible. “Having a book for kids, it starts them when they’re young and they learn these habits and S S T I L L I C H A O T L W I A L R I L S A T E B A Y

develop them as they get older. You can talk about it, but what are you going to do when you’re done talking?” Mainer, one of the book’s main characters, is based on Loewen, a black bear who has moved into a new area and joins a hockey team that includes Ari, the series’ titular character who “is a little brat you feel like smacking,” Petkau said. “But he’ll grow through the series. “You physically flip the book over once you get to the middle and read the other [character’s] perspective. That was Thom’s idea, which I think is brilliant.” The book, written for students in Kindergarten through Grade 2, explores several key themes, including kindness, being the new kid, making friends, accepting others and racial differences.

“Thom and I are both white men living in the centre of Canada,” Petkau said. “We haven’t faced racism. Jermaine has.” Fitting in at school and on the ice in Arborg, Man., was never easy and racial discrimination did not stop when Loewen reached the WHL in Kamloops. “I’m not saying I was treated very, very crappy, but there were times in my life I was discriminated against,” Loewen said. “This is not about screaming, ‘Oh, poor me.’ It’s about overcoming those things. “How does the black bear overcome the things he went through?” In the end, it is Mainer who offers an olive branch to Ari.

Loewen chasing pro contract From A27

“I wasn’t sure about that, at first,” Petkau said. “Do we want to have the person who was wronged be the one to have to reach out? But that’s just Jermaine and how he’s lived his life. “We made sure to keep him in character. That’s real. That’s the way he is. He’s just a remarkable young man.” Loewen said Ari’s creators are not out to get rich and Petkau noted children’s books are not usually cash cows unless your last name is Munsch. “It will help teach kids,” Petkau said, noting he expects the series to feature at least three books. “That’s our goal. We wanted to tackle things like racism.” The book series website, arithelion.com, includes resources for parents and teachers, along with activities for kids, who can sign up for Ari’s Kindess Club. Club subscribers (there is no cost to join) receive a membership card, a gift in the mail (Petkau mentioned stickers) and emails that will include kindness challenges and colouring pages. Petkau said Mainer’s char-

and Fort Wayne Komets in the ECHL. “I kind of had to go through the muck and the grind and the adversity to figure out it’s definitely a different game,” said Loewen, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound forward. “A lot of growth, a lot of learning.” Loewen, who was picked by the Dallas Stars in Round 7 of the 2018 NHL Draft, is expecting to play this season for the Henderson Silver Knights, the AHL affiliate of the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights. His pro contract is set to expire following the 2020-2021 season. The AHL has been postponed until Feb. 5 because of the pandemic. “It’s a big year for me as far as my development goes and I have to get another contract after this year,” Loewen said. “I’m putting in lots of extra time and work because I feel like I can do it. “I’m still preparing for February.” Loewen remains close with his billet parents from his Blazers’ days, Kelly and Brenda Thomson, with whom he spent Christmas in Kamloops. “They treated me well,” he said. “I know I can crash there.”

Junior teams reunited NICK GREENIZAN

BLACK PRESS

On Monday, viaSport announced the province has modified its rules around adult sports, allowing junior hockey players 22 and under to practise together. The changes are good news for junior hockey teams in Kamloops, including the major junior Blazers and junior B Storm. Under the previous rules, junior players ages 19 to 21 had been banned from training with their younger teammates, as the November-issued health order lumped those older players in with other adults playing recreational sports, which were suspended under the order. The revised rules have changed “adult team sport” — which previously lumped in the older juniors — to now read as “group

permitted in groups of up to two people (e.g. singles tennis or an athlete and a coach training session). Outdoor group sport is only permitted in groups of up to four people (e.g. four individuals may run together or four individuals could run soccer drills),” the statement from viaSport reads. Individuals are allowed to travel to their home club “for the purpose of sport” and those determined to be “high performance athletes” in other sports, not just hockey, have also received an ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW exemption, under viaCarter McLellan of the Sport’s revised condiKamloops Storm handles tions. the puck in junior B hockey The move means action last season at that BCHL, Western Memorial Arena.

“Mike made the selling of my town home such an ease. He was so friendly and professional. He had my place sold within 3 days of listing. He had a professional photographer come and take pictures and videos, which I have never experienced with another realtor, that made my place look even better than ever. It was all seamless and not stressful at all Mike was always there to handle everything and made selling my place not only easy but a delight. I would highly highly recommend him. Oh and the beautiful gift basket he left for me was not interested a surprise but a classy gesture of thanks by him. You can’t go wrong when buying or selling with Mike” – S.D.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Aries, it may take time to make a nutritional overhaul, especially if indulging in drinks and sweets has become habitual. Be patient with yourself and you’ll be successful.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you’ve been considering a move lately, you may find yourself putting the wheels in motion pretty soon. Begin to make a list of what you need to pull this off.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Direct communication does not always come easy to you, Gemini. Give it a try and convey your feelings to someone you love. Be honest and welcome the response.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer, even if you’re feeling out of sync this week, you will manage to find someone who is marching along to a similar beat. This person can become a true friend.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Start to clean house, Leo. Avoid any distracting habits that might get in your way. You don’t need anything to derail your positive plans for the future this week.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, find a new muse and begin a creative project. There may be some obstacles along the way, but you will see creative endeavours through to completion.

DECEMBER 30 - JANUARY 5, 2021 LIBRA

- Sept 23/Oct 23 A former flame may try to heat things up again, Libra. If you’re single, you may be interested. But steer clear of this person if you’re attached because it spells trouble.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, embrace healthy debate and don’t try to bowl anyone over with your big ideas. Afford others their own right to have an opinion, even if it differs from your own.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You have learned many lessons about financial responsibility, Sagittarius. When an item catches your eye, it might be very tempting to indulge. Stay the course.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Personal affairs often make you a closed book, Capricorn. But you may have to spill a few secrets to a trusted friend to get the advice you need right now.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Clean up any unresolved parts of your life before the year draws to a close , Aquarius. It’s a large undertaking, but you have the means and the support to get it done.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20 Cease to compromise on your core values, Pisces. You do not have to sway to the desires of others. Stand your ground on important issues.

Brent M. Nowicki 1952 - 2017

Donna Jack 1945 - 2010

Maurizio was born on July 28, 1934 in Lago, Italy. The Chiatto family arrived at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia aboard the Vulcania on December 15, 1961. Maurizio was an avid fisherman and had a deep adoration for the outdoors. He spent many happy hours at Roche Lake which was one of his favourite places to go with his partner, Val.

Happy Birthday

Maurizio was passionate about his garden and fruit trees which he tended to with care. He loved to share his harvest with family, friends, and neighbours. In his spare time, he enjoyed making homemade wine, bread, and a variety of traditional Italian cuisine. Maurizio was known for his quick wit, stubborn character, and strong work ethic. We are incredibly saddened by this loss.

All too quickly, Ten years has passed.

As long as I love you will live.

When we gather, we still tell your stories, bringing laughter and love, our memories of the heart.

As long as I live you will be remembered.

We will always love and miss you.

I wish I had a heart of stone. Then it wouldn’t hurt so bad....being alone. I wish that I could build a dam To hold back the tears that flow on and on...

As long as I love you will be loved.

Daniel Peter Huska

We love you forever. Condolences may be expressed at: www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

But my heart is not made of stone And my tears I can’t control Cause my heart is so filled with love for you.

Love Rob

Angus Morrison Currie It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Angus Morrison Currie in Kamloops, BC on the morning of December 20, 2020. Angus is survived by his loving of wife 57 years, Jacolyn, their children Anne Louise Currie, (Ellen), Gail Markin (Tony), Diane Currie Sam (Randy), Iain Currie (Lisa), Donna Curdyk (Mike), ten grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Angus and Mary Margaret, and his brother Archie. Angus was a gentle and loving man who touched the lives of many with his quick wit, infectious humour and kind soul. Born in Prince Rupert, BC on September 3, 1930, he was the son of Scottish immigrants and grew up on the shores of the Skeena River at the Claxton Cannery during fishing seasons, and in Vancouver in the off-season. A graduate of Vancouver College and the University of British Columbia (B.Comm), he and his wife Jacolyn moved to Kamloops after their marriage in 1963, where they raised their children and owned and operated several successful car dealerships.

It's been a year now since we've seen your smile, heard your laugh, held you in our arms or felt your presence. Our hearts ache but are slowly healing, with the emptiness that remains in your absence. You were always there to bind us all together and keep our family strong with your love and support. We will continue to cherish our memories of you and you will remain in our hearts forever! We will Love and Remember you Always! Arlene, Renee, Daniel, Phil, Don, Jeyda, Adam, Holly, Keenan, Hudson & Reese

Silver threads and golden needles Cannot mend this heart of mine.

Forever and deeply loved Dee-Dee

Miss you and love you Grampa Todd

Me too Dad, Love Nikki

He was a community-minded businessman who was active in the Rotary Club, the Kinsmen and Sacred Heart Parish. Angus was a storyteller with a poet’s soul who regaled his family and friends with his wonderfully colourful and funny stories, and his repertoire of quotes, quips and anecdotes. He made the world seem funnier, brighter and more interesting. Most importantly, he made us feel loved and welcomed in his home and heart.

He will be forever missed. A private funeral was held on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 at Holy Family Catholic Church in Kamloops, BC. A celebration of life will be held next year when it is safe to do so, and we can gather in the spirit of love, family and friendship and celebrate a man who lived a profoundly beautiful life and left us a legacy of love.

Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director

Every Wednesday in KTW!

Terry was a proud member of the R.C.M.P from 1969 - 2005 when he retired to enjoy his passion for golf which he did at his much loved Rivershore. He was a true sportsman playing golf, hockey, fastball and curling all at a competitive level. Terry completed his bucket list when he played St. Andrews in Scotland (twice) and because of a dear friend gained access to the hallowed grounds of the Royal and Ancient clubhouse where he sat in those famous windows looking down the first fairway drinking a “wee dram”of scotch with good friend Fraser.

Ronald Fairhurst Ronald Edward Fairhurst age 86, passed away peacefully December 19, 2020 after a courageous and determined battle with cancer. He was in the company of his devoted wife of 62 years, Doreen, his son Bob and daughter-in-law Nancy at the time of passing. Ron was predeceased by his parents Robert and Ida Fairhurst of Medicine Hat, Alberta as well as his youngest brother John, (Jack) and sister-in-law Elsie of Regina, Saskatchewan. He is survived by his wife Doreen, brother Bob (Rita), daughter Deborah (Brian) and sons Bob (Nancy) and Doug. He will be remembered in spirit, by his grandsons Michael and Christopher and his step-grandchildren Matthew (Lindsay) and Sarah (Nathan) along with their infant daughter Lyla. Ron is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. There was nothing that brought a greater sense of satisfaction and pride to Ron than being surrounded by family and friends. Up until his final days, Ron remained a joyful story teller who thrived in the companionship of others. His ventures in life always provided great topics of conversation. He was particularly proud of his 26 years service with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a career path that was followed by his brothers Bob and Jack. The sense of pride their parents felt in having three young R.C.M.P. constables in the family was openly displayed in their home town of Redcliff as Ida Fairhurst proudly hung their red serges on the line “to air” for all the neighbours to see. It was during Ron’s first posting in White Rock, BC, that he met the person to whom he would be devoted for life, a young teacher from Fairview, Alberta, Doreen Campbell. They married in August 1958. Ron’s career in The Force took him to further postings in “E” Division, (B.C.); namely, Creston, Williams Lake, Dawson Creek, Prince Rupert and finally Kamloops, where he retired as a Staff Sargent. Ron and Doreen shared a full and active life. They provided a happy and adventurous childhood to Deb, Bob and Doug and have remained heavily invested in their well-being to this day. They have been equally devoted as grandparents. Ron and Doreen shared a love of the outdoors and took part in activities such as cross-country skiing, kayaking, snow-shoeing and hiking mountain trails. Ron very much enjoyed his time around water and was happy to spend hours of the summer time in a boat pulling waterskiers, fishing or taking guests on lake tours. In Ron’s retirement years, that followed a second career as an insurance adjuster and claims investigator, he and Doreen enjoyed the great quality of life that Shuswap Lake had to offer, whether it was hosting family and friends at their Scotch Creek cabin or sharing companionship at their home in Chase looking over the lake. Every year Ron took pride in being the first person to enter that cold lake early in the season to initiate his daily morning swims that lasted into fall. Ron gave years of service to the community of Chase through volunteer work as a member of the local Lions Club. Ron and Doreen took many opportunities to travel throughout Canada and the United States. One of their most memorable trips occurred in 1993 when they ventured from Chase, BC to the east coast of Canada, ending up in Halifax. Ron, a confident and enthusiastic driver claimed to love the open lanes of the Trans Canada but had other comments to make with regard to the challenges of navigating the narrow streets of Old Quebec in a camper van. In addition to sustaining strong family bonds throughout his life, Ron was fortunate to have had a host of friends. As he entered his final stages of life, he had the support of many. Ron had great affection and appreciation for the staff of the IV therapy unit the Royal Island Hospital. He found them to be an invaluable support for his social well-being in addition to his medical needs. Ron’s family shares this appreciation. Gratitude is extended, also, to family physician, Dr. DeKoch and oncologist, Dr. Hodgins both of whom provided excellent medical care and respected Ron’s desire for clear and honest medical feedback. Deep appreciation is offered to the outreach services of the Kamloops United Church and finally, to the many family members and friends who gave Ron the precious gifts of companionship and love in his final months. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to P.I.T. Stop - Kamloops United Church or to The Salvation Army. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Christina Rae Hunter on December 19, 2020 at the age of 79. Chris was born in Victoria, BC, the only child to Ethel and William Surradge. They moved to Burnaby, BC where Chris met the love of her life, Jim Hunter, at Burnaby North High school. Chris and Jim married and settled in Surrey, BC where they welcomed their son, Russ in 1968. Here they formed lifelong friendships and spent countless hours at their cabin at Anderson Lake. In 1980 Jim took a job transfer to Kamloops and they settled in Rayleigh. Chris and Jim were proud members of the Shriners and Daughters of the Nile. Chris was also a longtime member of the YMCA where she met friends to work out, but especially enjoyed the luncheons that followed. Chris was an avid Canucks fan and never missed a game. She was also the biggest fan of her two grandchildren, Bennett and Sophie whom she attended every game, recital and concert, never missing an event. Left to mourn her passing is her son Russ, daughter-in-law Tara, grandchildren Bennett and Sophie. Chris is predeceased by her husband James George Hunter on December 16, 2007 and parents Ethel and William Surradge.

I’m Glad I Touched Shoulders With You

From Bob White’s Scrapbook

The Little Unicorn by Peggy Kociscin, Albuquerque, New Mexico

There lived a little unicorn (From when the earth was new), His coat so white it glistened, His eyes a sparkling blue.

But, as he grew and learned of life, The sparkle in his eye Grew misty as he realized Just what it means to cry.

His mother held him lovingly And tried to ease his fears About the sadness life could bring... The lonely, bitter tears.

His spirit crushed, he felt defeated, And lonely tears would start. Not understanding how to love, It simply broke his heart.

In innocence and beauty, He danced through woods and streams. The animals danced with him, His heart aglow with dreams.

He learned that there are shadows In spite of shining sun. The more he grew, he found that life Was never always fun.

She said, “Life is like a mountain, (And surely this is true) That we must climb as best we can. There’s no ‘around or ‘through.’�

But now he’s in a loving place Where all his pain has ceased, Where all accepted him and his love, Where all he knows is peace.

He laughed and played with rainbows, So happy all day through, He loved to kiss the owers As their petals shone with dew.

For now he’d learn of feelings That come from deep within; No longer in the “dream world� Where (for so long) he’d been.

The unicorn tried tirelessly, And gave the climb his best; But he felt it was not good enough, He felt he’d failed the test.

A loving Being tells him, “You’re delightful as you are.� His spirit free, his brilliance now Outshines the brightest star!

He wandered through the meadows In the moon’s soft, silver light. He loved to gaze at all the stars That lightened up the night.

His gentle heart desired But to know the pleasure of To give and to receive The very precious gift of love.

He could not understand it When he felt himself rejected – When all his gentle being asked Was but to be accepted.

He listened to the music Of the birds that graced the trees. He frolicked with the butteries And raced the gentle breeze.

To love meant to be happy, And yet it also brought him pain; For those he loved could hurt him Again.. and yet again.

All this was just too much for him, He knew not what to do. That he was special as himself, Somehow, he never knew.

Obituaries

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 buttery 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 ower 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 owers 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 magniďŹ cence 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

She moved to Athabasca, Alberta with husband Bob and youngest son Todd. She worked at Scotiabank and Athabasca Health Services until she retired. Margo loved sports, and travelling to Vegas and other countries with warm weather for vacation during the winter time.

Mom had a long battle with MS which never slowed her down, her smile will be missed.
