WHO PAYS WHEN POTHOLES STRIKE? LOCAL CRATERS MIGHT BE MORE THAN JUST A BUMP IN THE ROAD JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

P

amela Gregor was recently driving down Hillside Drive in her brand new Toyota Corolla when she hit a pothole and blew her tire. The incident resulted in more than $800 in damage and, to her surprise, it was deemed her fault by ICBC. “I said, ‘I’m not! I didn’t see that pothole. It was full of water. How could you put the blame on me?’” Gregor told KTW. “They said, ‘Well, you can’t blame anybody else.’”

Two recent pothole-damage cases are raising questions about who is responsible and who should pay when vehicular damage occurs as a result of the pavement pockmarks, long the ire of Kamloops residents. After Gregor’s pothole mishap — which occurred on Jan. 2 and caused damage to not only her car’s tire, but also the rim and required her vehicle to have a wheel alignment — Gregor made her first call to the city. She said the city referred her to ICBC, which informed her it was her fault. Gregor said she was surprised to learn she was at fault because the pothole was not only dif-

ficult to see, but it was also impossible to miss or swerve around, due to its size and the area in which it was located. The lane to her left was filled with traffic and there was no room to pull over on her right. Mark Bell hit a pothole in the same area on the same day, but at nighttime. Like Gregor, he said he did not see the pothole — but for a different reason. “The street lights aren’t on that side of the road,” Bell said. “They’re on the other side of the road. That’s where the sidewalk is. So, you don’t see going down the hill. It was quite dark and it was right in line with the driver-side tire and, at the time

you realize it, you can’t swerve and you can potentially hurt somebody and it’s icy. I just hit it dead on.” Bell was waiting for the total cost of damage to his vehicle when he spoke to KTW. As an added headache, he went without a vehicle for some time as he awaited repairs to be completed on his vehicle. City of Kamloops streets manager Glen Farrow said when damage occurs to a vehicle as a result of a pothole, it is generally on the backs of drivers. In Canada, he said, temperatures rise and fall, resulting in freezing and thawing that causes potholes.

Bell, however, argued he pays for road maintenance through property taxes. Hillside Drive is a city roadway. The city’s risk manager, Terry Pile, said the issue comes down to proving negligence. “The city would have to have, say, been informed of a pothole and just did nothing about it,” Pile said when asked of a situation when the city would be liable. He said the city repairs potholes when they are reported by the public, while crews also proactively seek out areas that need repair. See CITY PAID, A22

SUMMIT-DOWNTOWN CONNECTION

NORTH SHORE PLAN DESIGN CHARRETTE

The Summit-Downtown Active Transportation Connection project consists of two segments: the Summit Drive Multi-Use Pathway and 6th Avenue Bike Lane. The two components are key in supporting a continuous north-south bicycle route from Aberdeen to Westsyde and will serve as important links to connect Upper Sahali and the Downtown to the existing Xget'tem' Trail.

HAVE YOUR SAY!

The Summit Drive Multi-Use Path will join dedicated bike lanes on Summit Drive at Whiteshield Crescent South with the Xget'tem' Trail Multi-Use Path starting at Notre Dame Drive. The 6th Avenue bike lane would be a separated, fully protected, two-way bike lane designed to AAA (all ages and abilities) standards—the first of its kind in Kamloops—running from Columbia Street to Lansdowne Street.

We are looking for feedback on design concept sketches that were developed as part of the North Shore Neighbourhood Plan design charrette. This event involved stakeholders and the public to generate visionary ideas and design concepts for the area. The design concepts offer a vision for three distinct districts—the North Shore Town Centre, Tranquille Market Corridor, and the Riverfront—and are now posted on our website. Join the discussion in our interactive online forum until January 31. In addition to the design sketches, a short video is available that describes the elements found within each concept.

DEATH REPORTED FOLLOWING OUTBREAK

A RESIDENT AT THE BROCKLEHURST GEMSTONE CARE CENTRE HAS DIED FOLLOWING AN OUTBREAK OF COVID-19 THAT BEGAN ON JAN. 13 SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A resident at the Brocklehurst Gemstone Care Centre has died due to COVID19, Kamloops This Week has learned, and care home brass say they remain unclear about the source of infection in an outbreak now nearing twodozen cases. In a video conference call with residents’ family members on Monday, Trellis Seniors Services president Mary McDougall said the source of infection remains unclear. The outbreak has now expanded to 22 cases, with 16 cases among

residents and six among staff. “We are really confused by this,” McDougall said, noting Interior Health continues to investigate the outbreak. “It is unclear if there is a series of coincidental events or if there is a single source. We do not know how this has happened.” An outbreak was declared at the facility, which is located at 1955 Tranquille Rd. in Brocklehurst, on Jan. 13, beginning with four cases. An outbreak is declared by a medical health officer when a certain number of people who share a common space are diagnosed with COVID19 within a 14-day period,

according to the BC Centre for Disease Control. On Saturday (Jan. 16), residents received the COVID-19 vaccine, along with staff who chose to be vaccinated. Care home administrators have also quarantined areas of the home to prevent further infection. Initially, cases were reported in just one segment of the care home — known as “neighbourhoods” — on the third floor of the facility and quarantine measures were put in place. On Monday, however, administrators reported one case in a second neighbourhood. The affected resident was moved to a room in the

previously affected neighbourhood. Quarantine measures are now in place for both areas, where cases have been detected. All residents and staff have now been tested, although some results are still outstanding for staff who have not returned to the facility since the outbreak was declared. Testing continues at the facility, with a low symptom threshold for new tests. Another update to families was expected Tuesday afternoon after KTW’s press deadline. The facility has 125 publicly funded beds and five private beds.

A Kamloops man who was pulled from the South Thompson River in the Valleyview area on Saturday has died. Emergency crews were called shortly after 11:30 a.m. to the 1800-block of Kelly Douglas Road behind the Kal Tire plant where a man had been seen in the water and wasn’t moving, according to an RCMP press release. The man, who was in his 40s, had reportedly been in the river for about 15 minutes. Police say they received a call at 11:34 a.m., while BC Emergency Health Services said they were notified at 11:42 a.m. and dispatched two

paramedic crews and a supervisor unit to the scene. Police, paramedics and firefighters responded and found the unconscious man lying face up with his lower body in the water.

He was pulled from the water and transported to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, but then transferred to Kelowna General Hospital, where he died later that night. Asked why the person

was transferred, BC EHS spokesperson Sarah Morris said patients can be transferred to a higher level of care facility for a variety of reasons, but would not specify why in this case due to privacy concerns. “Police do not suspect any criminality in the man’s death at this time,” Const. Crystal Evelyn said. Evelyn would not specify as to why police do not suspect criminality at this time. The BC Coroners Service has been notified and is also investigating the circumstances surrounding the death. To protect the privacy of the deceased, under the Coroners Act, identification is not being released, Evelyn said.

Stone won’t run for BC Liberal leadership JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops-South Thompson Liberal MLA Todd Stone said he went into the Christmas break confident he would enter the BC Liberal Party leadership race. In prior months, he had began building a campaign team, raising money and refining a message. However, Stone said he had a “profound moment” with family over the holidays, realizing he had limited time before his daughter’s left the house. Party leadership would consume a lot of time and he said he may have only four to six years with his daughters and wife under one roof. “I’ve decided to put the girls first and it feels great,” Stone told KTW, noting he has slept well since making his decision. Stone announced online last week he would not be running. Stone was re-elected for a third term as KamloopsSouth Thompson MLA in the fall of 2020, with 51 per cent of the vote. His BC Liberal Party, meanwhile, lost a significant number of seats to the incumbent BC NDP, which received a majority to govern. The BC Liberal Party currently has 28 seats in the legislature, compared to the BC NDP’s 57 seats and the BC Green Party’s two seats. Former party leader Andrew Wilkinson stepped

TODD STONE down shortly after the election, with veteran Prince George-Valemount Liberal MLA and former cabinet minister Shirley Bond named interim leader. Leadership speculation mounted, though a BC Liberal party spokesperson told KTW no date has been set for the race. Stone ran for party leadership in 2018 and lost to Wilkinson, who took over from former leader and premier, Christy Clark. The Liberals were ousted in 2017, after 16 years in power. Stone said he will continue to do everything he can to help elect a BC Liberal government in the future. He said the party needs to broadly engage with members and British Columbians about party values and future direction and that the party should ensure “everyone in this province feels welcome in this party.” In his online announcement, Stone said the party must engage with people for whom the party is no

longer relevant. He said the party must inspire young people and women and reflect diversity, including LGBTQ members. Stone also noted to KTW the rural-urban divide. In the fall election, the BC Liberal Party did not win seats in major urban centres. “The challenge here is to figure out how to best inspire people across the province, especially at this point in the Lower Mainland, in urban centres, to feel comfortable supporting our party again,” he said. “We have to do that in order to have a chance to earn the trust of enough people to form government again.” Asked who he thinks will be the next leader of the party, Stone did not answer but said he knows of people considering entering the race. As for a future run, Stone would not rule it out. Perhaps when his girls head off to college? “The decision I’m making here is about this leadership race,” Stone said. “What the future holds, in terms of where I may be in four years, let alone eight or 12 years from now, who knows, but I feel really good about this decision and I also know when to make those decisions of the heart, they’re usually made for the right reasons and other opporSALES & INSTALLATIONS tunities usually manifest and present themselves.”

THE KTW EDITORIAL

DISAPPOINTING MOTION DEFEAT Kamloops council should have passed Coun. Arjun Singh’s motion last week that called for the city to merely look into the feasibility and practicality of accelerating active-transportation projects. There was no commitment to spend money now on projects such as improved cycling lanes. The request was that city staff look into the issue. There is no harm is investigating budgets and timelines without committing to any decisions until further notice. At the heart of what Singh called an omnibus motion is the city’s fragmented cycling network, which he correctly argued is in need of improvement. Singh had previously mused about a pathway throughout the city, connecting Thompson Rivers University and other areas of town and including landmarks and points of interest. Construction of the Xget’tem Trail joining downtown to Sahali is an excellent example of a link that was desperately needed. And there are many other areas that could use similar connections. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Singh’s defeated motion was the idea of a community fundraising campaign to accelerate active transportation. Kamloops is home to thousands of people who use Rivers Trail, Xget’tem Trail and designated bike lanes throughout the community. If benefactors are willing to donate to other campaigns — from the cultural to the medical — why wouldn’t they be willing to pony up to help accelerate these much-needed projects? Yes, there are many other projects vying for the city’s finite budget dollars, but the motion that was defeated last week was one that would have cost the city nothing but some imagination. Robert W.

Be the ocean, not one drop

I

t has been the bleakest of times since March of last year and it continues to be so for many people. Through these pandemiclaced months, we have heard Dr. Bonnie Henry repeatedly call for people to be kind. She said it so often that it soon became white noise, was featured in myriad memes and, alas, was dismissed by the more conspiracy theory minded among us. But being kind amid the pandemic really has prevailed, despite the cynics among us who scoffed at the good doctor’s seemingly naive, aw-shucks appeal to be good in these bad times. Consider the caller from Lac Le Jeune who picked up a copy of Kamloops This Week in early December and read a letter to the editor from a feisty senior named Grace Guevin. It seems some miscreant stole the 88-year-old’s charger for her scooter, thereby also absconding with her mode of transport. Gavin’s missive was a lament for the paucity of punishment these days. As she wrote in her letter: “I was raised by two wonderful parents, who always warned — if you steal, you pay, at the woodshed.” The charger that was pilfered is worth about $275, which to Guevin is a heck of a lot of money. Enter our caller from Lac Le Jeune. He read the letter, wanted to help, but wished to remain anonymous — so he sent me a cheque for $300, which I cashed.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS With six crisp portraits of King in my pocket, I drove to Guevin’s residence and, while masked up, handed her the cash. She was, in her words, “over the moon.” Not long after my visit, a caller from Clearwater noted he saw the letter reprinted in that town’s newspaper. He, too, wanted to donate to the cause and was to also send a cheque. This generosity seems to be as contagious as COVID-19 during this pandemic. Consider the annual KTW Christmas Cheer Fund, which raises money for five local non-profit groups. Readers’ donations in 2020 — amid the most serious health crisis that has led to an ongoing economic crisis — resulted in a recordshattering total of $93,000. Remember also the spring Rotary Food Drive, held just a month into the pandemic. Organizers were

extremely worried as the economy stalled and store shelves were bare of various staples. Despite all that, and in spite of figuring out the then-new COVID19 protocols, the April food drive gathered an unprecedented 70,000 pounds of food — enough to keep the food bank shelves stocked for six months. The fall food drive brought in 57,000 pounds of product, the largest autumn amount collected since 2013. Recall, too, the annual Campout to End Youth Homelessness, held just seven days after the death of its founder, A Way Home Kamloops executive director Katherine McParland. The event more than doubled its fundraising goal of $50,000. And there has been more, so much more, from strangers paying grocery store bills for others, to people devoting countless hours sewing masks, to volunteers standing outside seniors’ care homes and playing beautiful music. These are dark days, indeed, and they will be with us for longer than many think. But these acts of kindness, these gifts of gratitude, illustrate that, at our core, we are better than cynicism. We are better than mockery. We are better than mindless conspiracy theories. Ryunosuke Satoro, Japan’s father of the short story, nailed it: “Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Too many names to list — thank you to those who helped Editor: Thank you Kamloops. We live in a province that most of us take for granted — not because we don’t appreciate the social and health care net that helps us in times of need, but more likely because we are used to it. We grew up with it. We “pay” for it. But our family has gone

through something recently — the loss of a most important human — and this loss has opened our eyes to the incredible benefits we have available to us in this province. From transport to the hospital by trained paramedics to incredible nursing and medical care at RIH. And when we made the decision to keep

ROAD SAFETY SHOULDN’T BE AN AFTERTHOUGHT Editor: It is a shame our city fathers are so short-sighted, when it comes to safety on the roads — not just for cyclists but also for hikers, skate boarders, etc. We are supposedly the Tournament Capital. Is that just a name or a reality? The Ord Road to Cinnamon Ridge compost site is a racetrack for all ages. There are no bike lane for families with children and it is an accident waiting to happen.

Schubert Drive is also full of potholes. It is a great place to walk and ride and needs an upgrade. Westsyde to the Dunes and beyond needs a proper bike lane on both sides.These are just a few safety items on the North Shore that should be looked at. With electric bikes more and more on the road, hundreds of families are getting out there. Let’s try and make it safe for everyone. Thank you. John Tilley Retired Canadian cycling coach

A Kamloops man who reportedly panicked when he found his roommate dead in his apartment, before hiding his body and disposing of it near a dumpster, will learn his fate in March. Shane Brownlee, 52, pleaded guilty to one count of interference with a dead body. His roommate, David Boltwood, 65, was found dead and rolled up in a carpet in North Kamloops on Nov. 29, 2019. Police initially suspected a homicide, but an autopsy later determined Boltwood died of natural causes, complications with emphysema. Court heard Brownlee invited Boltwood, who was homeless and had health issues, to live with him at his home, at 170 Carson Cresc. An agreed upon statement of facts notes Boltwood died sometime after Nov. 7, when Brownlee was served evic-

tion. About a week later, building cleaners noticed a foul smell around Brownlee’s apartment. A photo taken by the building manager showed a carpet rolled up in one of the bedrooms. Brownlee moved Boltwood’s body, contained in the rug, to a storage locker across the hall. On Nov. 23, Brownlee asked a 15-yearold boy, who lived in the area, to help him move out of his apartment and the two moved a large cardboard box containing the carpet outside to the building’s dumpster. It was caught by security camera. Five days later, two passersby noticed the concealed body and reported it to police. After police issued a press release about the discovery, the teenager called to report he had unknowingly aided Brownlee. The day before Boltwood’s body was found, Brownlee stole his girlfriend’s car. He was later arrested in Jasper, Alta. In his police statement, Brownlee said he panicked when he came home from grocery shopping to find Boltwood dead and was adamant he did not murder

him. Asked by police why he did not call for help, Brownlee said he suffered from anxiety and did not handle death well. He was charged last July. Crown prosecutor Camille Cook suggested a two-year conditional sentence order and up to three years probation, meaning Brownlee would serve up to five years in the community. Defence lawyer Kristjan Thorsteinson said Brownlee argued for a lesser sentence. He said his client was grappling with mental health issues and addiction and has since made positive changes. “It was wrong of me to run away from the situation and I’m here to accept the consequences,” Brownlee said in court. “Forgive me for what I have done.” Boltwood’s brother, Benjamin, was in courtroom and expressed frustration his brother’s body went undetected for weeks, but was ultimately pleased the tragedy turned catalyst for Brownlee to better his life, which will honour his brother’s memory. Judgement will be rendered on March 26, 2021.

TRU looks to finish fiscal year in the black MICHAEL POTESTIO

Thompson Rivers University now expects to finish the fiscal year back in the black after long projecting a deficit from the financial ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. The university is currently trending towards a $1.7 million

surplus to close out the 2020-2021 budget as opposed to the previously projected $3 million deficit. It’s the latest estimate after a year of uncertainty in budget planning due to the impacts of COVID-19 — most notably the restrictions to international travel. In the spring, TRU anticipated a $9 million budget surplus would swing to a $9 million deficit due predominantly to an

estimated 30 per cent drop in international students and other ancillary revenue losses. Come the fall, that projection changed to a $3 million deficit as international enrolment was down just 13 per cent from the previous year. After fine-tuning the numbers of the second quarter report the university found itself projecting a surplus — albeit one that is about $6.8 million lower than the pre-pandemic one and $18.6 million lower than the prior year-end results. TRU vice president of finance and administration Matt Milovick told KTW in December the nearly $2 million surplus projection for 2020-21 is due to the unex-

pected strength in enrolment — domestic numbers being about the same as last fall and more new international students than expected starting programs remotely from their home countries. Domestic enrolment is expected to remain flat, but its still unclear what impact the pandemic will have going forward with respect to international students. International enrolment for winter 2021 is a projected to be down seven to 10 per cent from last winter, but that will be in flux until the course add/drop date of Jan. 22. Courses this winter semester are mostly online, but TRU hopes to offer more inclass instruction in the fall 2021 semester.

COVID-19

Q&A

There is an overwhelming amount of information available on the disease that has created the pandemic, but much of it is social media malarkey. To help separate the fact from fiction, KTW editor Christopher Foulds contacted three Kamloops doctors, who agreed to take part in a multi-part Q&A series that began in the Jan. 6 edition of Kamloops This Week. This is part 3 and the Q&A series will continue in subsequent editions until the queries are exhausted. Dr. Elizabeth Parfitt is a physician specializing in treating and diagnosing patients with infections at Royal Inland Hospital. Dr. Annemie Raath is a hospitalist at RIH, a family physician skilled in caring for hospitalized patients and who has been working on the COVID unit throughout the pandemic. Dr. Carol Fenton is a Kamloops-based medical health officer for Interior Health, a position that is a public health and preventive medicine specialist. Neither of the doctors are vaccinologists, virologists or immunologists. The information in the Q&A reflects current understanding as of Dec. 30, 2020, and will likely change rapidly, as has most everything since the pandemic was declared on March 11, 2020. Dr. Elizabeth Parfitt (left) and Dr. Annemie Raath at Royal Inland Hospital. Dr. Carol Fenton (whose photo is on the opposite page) is also taking part in the KTW Q&A. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

Q: We have been told pandemic-related measures — such as wearing masks, keeping our distances and washing our hands — must continue even after vaccination is done. Why? DR. PARFITT: Rolling out the COVID vaccine is probably going to take the better part of a year to get it to everyone who wants it. At first, we have to continue our other layers of defence, like distancing, masking and hand hygiene, until we start seeing drops in numbers or at least in hospitalizations and deaths as we immunize the highest-risk individuals and their caregivers and contacts. Our public health leaders will indicate how that process goes and we will learn from other countries, too. The other issue is we don’t know for sure, although we do expect, that the vaccine prevents transmission. We know a vaccinated person is much less likely to develop COVID-19, but we are not sure yet that they cannot somehow spread it to others. Again, with each passing week, we will know more. But for the next few weeks and likely months, getting vaccinated should not change our behaviours . We have to continue to fight the pandemic with all of the tools we have. Q: We have an annual influenza vaccine that targets strains believed to be predominant in that winter, but the effectiveness of each year’s vaccine can vary considerably. Can you explain what an

mRNA vaccine is and how it differs from vaccines for polio, flu, mumps, etc/? DR. RAATH: Dr. Edward Jenner is commonly credited as the father of vaccines from his work in the late 1800s, but there are many stories from the 1500s (and even earlier) where immunity was triggered by exposing patients to a weakened form of the disease. We’ve managed to develop more scientific approaches to vaccines than crumbling dried-up scabs and blowing them

up your nostril — as was apparently the practice in the Middle Ages! Modern-day vaccines fall into a few groups: 1. Live attenuated vaccines: The virus is modified into a weaker form, but is still “live.” This type of vaccine cannot be used in pregnancy and certain types of immunocompromise, but it gives long-lasting immunity. Examples are measles and chickenpox (varicella) vaccines. 2. Inactivated vaccines: The virus gets used as a whole, but it gets killed first. This can be done

chemically or by heat. The intact, but dead, virus is then used in the vaccine. It causes an immune response, but can’t replicate. An example is injected influenza vaccines. 3. Toxoids: Only the product of the organism is used. Tetanus or “lockjaw” vaccines are composed of the toxin/protein the bacteria that causes tetanus secretes. 4. Subunit/conjugate/ recombinant vaccines: Only a component of the virus or bacteria is used, often a protein or sugar. Examples are hepatitis B

and meningitis vaccines. 5. mRNA vaccines: Both of the vaccines as of now approved in Canada (Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna) work by this mechanism. The instructions for assembling the outer spike protein are packaged in fat droplets and go to the part of the cell that makes proteins — the ribosomes. The ribosomes use the instructions to assemble spike proteins and then teach the immune system to recognize them. The instructions don’t stick around very long and don’t enter the nucleus where the DNA is housed. 6. Adenovirus vector vaccines (i.e. the AstraZeneca/Oxford COVID vaccine: The DNA coding the outer spike protein is adapted into an inactivated form of an adenovirus (one of the common cold viruses). Ultimately, you get a similar effect as the mRNA vaccines or the live attenuated vaccines, in that the host human cells produce the spike protein (just as happens if infected with the virus) and the immune system learns to recognize it and prevent future infection with the “whole” or “natural” virus. DR. FENTON: There are different ways to produce vaccines and the viruses we target with vaccines have characteristics that make them more or less difficult to match. For example, for the

influenza virus, the current mode of production is to look at epidemiological data and models for influenza strains circulating around the globe. Then an educated guess is made about which strains will still be circulating the following season. Those viruses are then grown in a lab before being killed and chopped up for the vaccine. Your body uses these bits of dead virus to produce protective antibodies. However, in the time it takes to produce the vaccine and vaccinate the population, the circulating strains may change — either the virus itself changes genetically or a different virus may become more common in the meantime. The mRNA vaccines take a different approach. Scientists were able to use the genetic code for the SARS-COV-2 virus to create messenger RNA, or the body’s instructions on how to make the spike protein for the SARSCOV-2 virus. Once injected, the body takes the mRNA and creates its own spike proteins for the immune system to take and make antibodies. This method is much faster than trying to grow the virus in the lab, so they were able to produce the vaccine much quicker. The other advantage is that the spike protein is a key element of the COVID-19 virus that is unlikely to change, so we will likely have an excellent match to the virus for some time. Q: Even if we get back to “normal” at some point after vaccinations begin,

LOCAL NEWS there remains the danger of the next new virus creating a new pandemic. Is there anything society can do collectively to reduce the risk of that happening? DR. PARFITT: This is an inevitability, particularly given the way humans congregate and move across the globe and how we have encroached into animal environments. We can see that some parts of the world learned more from SARS in round one. They invested more in pandemic planning and mass testing strategies and adopted behaviours like masking as a cultural norm when experiencing respiratory symptoms. There are so many examples of things we can do better next time, especially where it comes to informing changes in human behaviour.

Dr. Preety Desai

What is a dental implant? There are so many false assumptions about dental implants. Dental implants replace lost teeth roots. Teeth are lost for three main reasons because dentistry could not save them: cavities or broken teeth, root canals leading to brittleness, fractures or gum disease. There are many times that teeth can be saved with comprehensive treatment; but saving teeth is not always easy. The patient or the dentist chooses to extract the tooth because costs add up or the predictability of saving the tooth is not ideal. We started to replace missing teeth with dentures that grab support from the remaining teeth but this is not ideal as natural teeth were not designed to be overtorqued. Then came bridges, which were cemented to adjacent teeth to “bridge” the gap. These teeth were wrecked by the drill and also had a higher risk for fracture, cavities and root canals. For this reason the average bridge lasts about 7-10 years and then what to do? Implants can be the most ideal way to replace a missing tooth as it is stands alone and will not torque or lean on adjacent teeth; not mother nature’s intent! Implants are versatile and can bear burden and hold crowns, bridges and dentures. But implants are far from perfect. In fact, now we understand that implants are at higher risk for disease and failure if you had lost teeth due to gum disease. They are not superheroes. In fact they are “delicate flowers” in a way and definitely high maintenance. Smokers and diabetics and other health issues play a role in the ultimate success of implants. Most dentists quote “99 percent” success rate. This is true and not true. Implants are made out of titanium which fuses to your jaw bone very predictably. But survival of an implant is the true value to you, the patient. Is the implant still functional and esthetic one year, five years or 25 years later? That is true “success.” The key is that even though an implant, being metal does not change, the bone and the gum around it do! Humans are made of skin, bone, muscle etc. which are constantly changing! So when you have a questionable tooth—remember that mother nature is way smarter then we are. If you can save the tooth, save it. You will still have bought yourself time and retained more jaw bone by not extracting it. You can always do an implant as plan B later if need be.

Kamloops’ Brownstone has its own Big Food Bucket List Brownstone Restaurant owner Connie Decaire is pleased to be getting the attention, but says they are not the only Kamloops restaurant that is going to be on the Big Food Bucket List TV show. Bold Pizza is also being featured in a different episode this year. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

DAVE EAGLES STAFF REPORTER dave_eagles@kamloopsthisweek.com

odern-day apps have increasingly become the tools consumers are using to find where to eat and what’s on the menu. Apps such as Tripadvisor, Yelp, Zomato and social media platform, Facebook, offer a business one more way to “get the word out” — to gain street credibility. So too, are popular TV shows like Big Food Bucket List on Food Network Canada. The show takes viewers on a food adventure across North America, tasting the best cuisine from the best eateries. It’s no surprise then, that host John Catucci (You Gotta Eat Here!) of Big Food Bucket List added Brownstone Restaurant to one of its stops, during a recent visit to the Kamloops’ eatery. The publicity has added a “notch on the belt” for a business that’s been getting things right over the past 16 years — affirmation, which is especially nice for their staff to receive. Brownstone owner/operators Dale and Connie Decaire noticed Catucci and his crew dining in their restaurant some years back while filming a different restaurant

in the River City. The producers contacted Connie Decaire through email recently, asking if they’d like to be featured in a show. The show decided Brownstone would be a good fit to add to their programming, and so after completing their application process, filming began this past summer. Decaire said the show’s crew were way ahead of the game, in terms of COVID-19 precautions. “The crew and entire production team was tested on a regular basis and they had very strict protocols. Everyone felt safe and secure,” Connie Decaire said. She wasn’t able to invite as many friends and customers to the filming as she would have liked, due to pandemic restrictions, but said the experience was great nonetheless. The pandemic has created changes in the ways Decaire runs her restaurant, as any other business has been affected, Connie Decaire said, following new directives. In-house, everything is different. “We were really good with cleanliness before, but now it’s a completely different thing, like it is for everyone else. Things you wouldn’t ordinarily have thought of, like proximity to tables, it’s all changed,” Connie Decaire said. Adding delivery service to their

takeout has been the biggest shift they have made. It has meant altering some dishes on the menu to ensure they travel well. Asked to recommend other Kamloops restaurants to visitors, Decaire said, she starts just down the street. Peter’s Pasta has been one she’s suggested over the years, as well as newcomer Di Muzio Restorante and Mittz Kitchen. Asked which restaurants were on her own bucket list, Connie Decaire said she would love to go back to a small independently owned, neighbourhood restaurant in the Azores. She recalls it fondly. “The food was phenomenal, super fresh seafood and amazing view, really friendly service.” Connie Decaire said. “I’d like to be there right now.” Decaire is pleased to be getting the attention, but said they are not the only Kamloops restaurant that’s going to be on an upcoming episode of the Big Food Bucket List. Bold Pizza is apparently being featured in a different episode this year as well. You can catch the Brownstone airing in the upcoming Feb. 13 episode of the Big Food Bucket List on Food Network Canada, which airs at 8 p.m.

Cherry Avenue apartment fire displaces residents

Take some you time.

JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops Fire Rescue and emergency support services volunteers attended Cherry Avenue overnight, where a fire occurred in an apartment building and displaced residents. Kamloops Fire Rescue acting platoon captain Ken Hartt said fire crews were called around midnight on Tuesday to a structure fire at an apartment, which is located at 435 Cherry Ave., including people reportedly trapped. Crews arrived on scene to smoke and flames coming from the rear of the building. Multiple people were rescued from the building. “They put a ground

ladder up and rescued two people off a back deck,” Hartt said, adding another person was rescued from a balcony at the front of the building. No injuries resulted, Hartt said. Crews extinguished the fire and searched the rest of the building. Nobody else was found. Hartt said one apartment unit was “completely gutted,” while two units on either side sustained roof damage. All of the residents from the building were evacuated, due to smoke damage. City of Kamloops social and community services supervisor Ty Helgason said the emergency support services team was on scene to set up residents who had been displaced by the fire with three days of

hotel accommodations, which is funded through Emergency Management BC, and help connect them to other services. Helgason said at least 46 people have been connected with emergency services. “We’re anticipating that number to continue to grow, as we connect with more reisdents,” Helgason said, noting there were more residents evacuated from the building yet to connect with emergency support services. The emergency support services team, partnered through KFR, the city and the Thompson Nicola Regional District, is comprised of about 80 volunteers and responds in situations like wildfires or floods and other scenarios in which people need to be evacuated.

TNRD seeks funding for renos JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Thompson Nicola Regional District, City of Kamloops and School District 73 board of directors could share a space to cut down on overlapping costs, according to a TNRD director. On Thursday, Area P (Rivers and the Peaks) director Mel Rothenburger raised the issue during the board’s regular meeting. It comes as the regional district has shared, for months, space for its meetings with the city in Sandman Centre. Council and regional district meetings have both been held there, with added space to comply with physical distancing requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rothenburger’s question was posed as the regional district looks toward grant funding to fix up and improve its downtown building. According to regional district staff, its building, located at 465 Victoria St., requires roofing and HVAC upgrades. In addition, the regional district

hopes to add solar panels to the roof and expand its board room, moving it from the fourth floor to the second floor. Facilities manager Ian Dalgleish told the board on Thursday, that without grant funding, the upgrades would be funded over several years. Staff sought approval from the board to apply for $2.4-million via a provincial COVID-19 infrastructure grant program, called the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream grant, which is accepting applications until the end of

the month. TNRD chair Ken Gillis also noted previous discussion, during the board’s strategic planning meetings in November, about the potential for selling the building, which is valued in the millions of dollars. The city also owns part of the building. The regional district in recent years has also upgraded its building’s entryway, added a commercial coffee shop space and erected artwork on top of the building.

Dr. Kevin Yang grew up in Burnaby and received his bachelor’s degree in honours physiology from University of British Columbia and his Doctor of Medicine degree from McGill in 2018. He spent the next two years practicing in a clinic in Yellowknife, helping those in need without access to regular dental care and gaining valuable dental experience. Dr. Yang returned to British Columbia to be closer with his family and friends. He looks forward to forming new relationships and continuing his lifelong journey in patient care and practicing dentistry! When he is not caring for his patients, he enjoys weight training at the gym, attending spin classes, hiking and trying out different food. Dr. Yang is bilingual and can converse in English and Korean.

Travel ban would be another blow to industry STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The tourism industry is pushing back amid talk of an interprovincial travel ban. Premier John Horgan has said his government is seeking legal advice on whether it can limit travel between provinces. However, Tourism Kamloops CEO Beverley DeSantis — who is also a director of the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia — said implementing such a ban would further “devastate” the tourism industry. TIABC received its own legal opinion, which suggested a travel ban would be difficult to implement because of a Supreme Court of Canada ruling that upheld mobility rights of Canadians. “We’re really asking the province not to pursue this outright travel ban,” DeSantis

Edmonton and Red Deer stop en route to Vancouver. DeSantis asked people not to judge without knowing circumstances of why people may be in town from another province. She also reminded that people from out-of-province spend money in B.C. “We don’t want to assume they’re causing it [spread of COVID-19] and creating animosity between our provinces,” she said. Out-of-province license plates at ski hills have been one point of contention. Tourism Sun Peaks president and CEO Arlene Schieven, however, said 95 per cent of visitation this season has come from within British Columbia and a minimal number of people have trickled in from Alberta or Ontario, potentially with homes at Sun Peaks. “It’s a local season this year,” she said, noting season’s pass holders have been fre-

said. “It sends a message that visitors are to blame and tourism is to blame. That is not the case. There is no indication that visitors are the ones that are causing the spread of the pandemic.” DeSantis said the tourism industry has taken significant measures to keep people safe. Scott’s Inn general manager Atish Patel said thousands of dollars have been spent. Glass dividers were purchased to divide tables, capacity was reduced, time between hotel stays increased, masks are required and cleaning increased. “Safety is No. 1,” Patel said. Patel said limited traffic has been coming from outof-province during the pandemic, but an interprovincial travel ban would be another blow. Occupancy rates are already down by half, he said. Kamloops is the gateway to the rockies and Patel said people from Calgary,

quenting the slopes and marketing efforts are focussed on those close to home, including offering midweek discounts. She expects an interprovincial ban on travel would have “very little impact.” B.C.’s provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has not issued a public health order to date banning interprovincial travel, but a federal advisory warns against nonessential travel and quarantine rules are in effect for those returning to the country. Atlantic Canada has also instituted a bubble system. DeSantis said conversations with industry need to occur before government announcements and plans. The B.C. government was previously criticized for a last-minute decision to impose a curfew on alcohol sales on New Year’s Eve. — with file from the Canadian Press

CMHC reports annual pace of housing starts down in December

CANADIAN PRESS

Tax credits you may qualify for, save money IT IS WORTH IT TO TAKE THE TIME TO ASSESS WHETHER YOU QUALIFY FOR A DISABILITY TAX CREDIT

I

t is worth the time investment to check and see if you or another family member qualifies for a disability tax credit. It could result in a large refund, even if your disability was several years ago. I have met many clients who thought they were not eligible. They suffered without benefits for several years before discovering they were, in fact, entitled to the payments. The disability credit tax system is very complex. It is important to hire the right professional who

specializes in the disability tax credit, understands the requirements and can assist you to qualify. For example, I was helping a woman who was caregiver to her mother for three years. While talking with this client, I learned of her own personal struggles with her health and thought she may also qualify for a disability tax refund. Although her health issues were not as severe as her mother’s, she learned how to live with them and had forgotten what she did every day to get by. I assessed her and dis-

covered she qualified for the previous 10 years and a 10-year refund. Upon further investigation, we realized her son also qualified. Neither she, nor her son, paid income tax, but her husband did. They all qualified for a disability tax credit and the father/husband/son received a refund for all of them. The man was also able to save in the amount of taxes he paid in the future. Nellie Krombach is general manager of Supportive Options & Solutions, serving all of B.C. To learn more, call 250-674-2419 or sosdtc123@gmail.com.

OTTAWA — The annual pace of housing starts in December fell compared with November, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. The monthly seasonally adjusted annual rate of housing starts for all areas in Canada, excluding Kelowna, B.C., fell 12.2 per cent in December from November, CMHC said on Monday. The annual pace of urban starts fell 12.8

per cent in December as urban starts of apartments, condos and other types of multiple-unit housing projects dropped 15.1 per cent. Singledetached urban starts fell 5.5 per cent. Rural starts were estimated at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 22,373 units. “December’s decline is unsurprising as some pullback from November’s massive level was to be expected,’’ wrote Rishi Sondhi, economist at TD Economics,

in a note to clients. “Still, homebuilding ended last year on solid footing, buoyed by gains in past home sales and population growth, a declining inventory of unsold new homes, as well as low interest rates.’’ Despite the drop in December, CMHC says the six-month moving average of the monthly seasonally adjusted annual rates of housing starts climbed to 239,052 units for the final month of 2020, up from 236,334 in November.

Second lynx now being cared for at BC Wildlife Park MICHAEL POTESTIO

STAFF REPORTER

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A lynx spotted roaming the Brocklehurst area will be in the care of the BC Wildlife Park for the next two weeks after being captured by conservation officers. It’s the second in about three months that a member of the reclusive species has been caught after being spotted uncharacteristically roaming the North Shore. The Conservation Office Service (COS) said it tranquilized the adult female lynx on Schubert Drive on Jan. 13 and transferred it to the park’s rehabilitation centre. “I would say [it’s] pretty rare. We might get one lynx in a year, so to have two in a shorter period — and for them to both be found in a town — is quite unusual,” BC Wildlife Park animal care manager Tracy Reynolds told KTW. The cat was found to be emaciated, but had no visible injuries and its teeth were in good condition, according to the COS. Reynolds said the cat is healthy, aside from needing

some food, and the plan is to keep it at the park and feed it until it is strong enough to be released back into the wild. “We just want to get a little bit of fat on her,” Reynolds said. Social media posts pegged the feline along Schubert Drive and Nelson Avenue on Jan. 12, as well as around The Dunes at Kamloops Golf Course in Westsyde before then. While it’s unclear if there was more than one lynx, the COS believes the cat it captured to be the one spotted in Brocklehurst, given the lack of sightings being reported from that neighbourhood since. Last October, a male lynx, which was also fairly thin and had a stomach infection, was captured by the COS around Willow Street in North Kamloops and sent to the wildlife park until it was healthy enough to be released into the wild. Reynolds said she suspects both of these cats wandered into town to look for food or possibly due to habitat loss. While it’s rare to see so much lynx activity in town — as the animals don’t frequent urban areas and shy away from humans — there is a naturally occurring

low in the number of rabbits and upland game birds in the wilderness around Kamloops this year, which may mean natural food sources are harder to come by for the lynx, according to the COS. The COS said a substantial increase in urban poultry in Kamloops and chickens and freeroaming house cats could also be drawing lynx to town.

City paid no pothole claims in 2020 From A1

Both Pile and Farrow said that if the city is not aware of a pothole, it can’t fix it, and encouraged residents to report potholes and to do so as quickly as possible, in order to prevent others from hitting the pothole. Residents can report potholes by calling 250-828-3461 or through the MyKamloops app. If possible, residents should take a photo of the pothole. Meanwhile, the city has a process, which is independent of reporting a pothole for repair, to claim damages. Pile explained someone wishing to make a claim against the city has to put in writing the incident to the city’s legislative services department. Details required include what happened, the date and time of the loss and why an individual believes the city to be responsible.

Pile said every pothole claim is investigated by the city. The streets department is questioned about whether any other members of the public reported the pothole and if the pothole was repaired and when. Was the city aware of the pothole and, if so, how long did it take to repair? If the city is found to be negligent, taxpayer dollars cover the repair. If not, the city explains why to the claimant. The city received 35 pothole claims in 2020 and paid out none of them. Pile explained the city responded to the potholes within its service levels. However, it may be difficult to hold the city to account in such scenarios because the city does not have in place a mandated timeline in which it must address potholes. The issue was discussed during a recent civic operations committee, during which Farrow explained the city does not have timelines in

place to address potholes, as it does for snow clearing. In the past, he said at the time, staff have used an internal 96-hour guideline. If someone disputes the findings of the city investigation, Pile said drivers are within their right to pursue the matter further through the courts. Pile said that doesn’t happen very often and it is likely due to the cost of legal fees compared to covering the cost of the pothole repairs. In Gregor’s case, would the headache and legal fees be worth the $800 in repair bills? The Hillside pothole has since been filled and Farrow is reminding residents to drive to road conditions — whether faced with ice, snow or potholes. Drivers, meanwhile, will continue to pay the price. “We’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, really,” Bell said.

“We can expect that these wild animals, whether they are lynx, bobcats, coyotes or bears, venture into town regularly, but the only reason they stay is because they are successful in finding a food source,” the COS said in a statement. Lynx do not pose a risk to public safety, but they are a risk to small pets and poultry, making

it important for people to keep their pets indoors and chicken coops secured for their safety and to protect their predators from becoming habituated to human raised food sources. The wildlife park will contact the COS when the lynx is ready to be relocated and the service will then determine where to release the animal.

Anti-idling bylaw working? JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Is the city’s anti-idling bylaw working? A Kamloops city councillor said that, despite a bylaw in place prohibiting people from idling their vehicles, she continues to see contravention. “I’m still seeing people idling their vehicles, in extremely warm weather, I might add,” Coun. Kathy Sinclair said. The city’s anti-idling bylaw prohibits idling of vehicles for more than three consecutive minutes. It does not apply to vehicles idling because of an

emergency, traffic conditions or mechanical difficulties. Offences related to idling are subject to a $100 fine. At the time of the bylaw’s implementation in recent years, it was criticized for lacking teeth. The city said it was intended to be more of an educational initiative, rather than one that would be enforced by bylaws. Sinclair said change needs to occur with “positive peer pressure,” similar to the way people encourage others to wear a seatbelt or not smoke indoors. She hopes Kamloops residents will gently remind others not to idle their vehicles.

Correction A headline in the Wednesday, Jan 13 edition of Kamloops This Week incorrectly identified a suspect in a Blind Bay stabbing as a “murder suspect.” In fact, the person in question is accused of “attempted murder.”

CHARITY CALENDAR

Share It Forward with Save-On ONGOING The non-profit Open Door Group has launched a fundraising campaign for the expansion project of its Gardengate Horticulture Program facility. The Gardengate program is funded by Interior Health and is a partner of the Kamloops Food Policy Council. The horticulture program helps those with addictions and/or mental-health issues. The program has been operating since 2000 out of space in Brocklehurst that is largely unusable during winter months due to lack of heat. With thousands of people from the community visiting Gardengate each year, the program is now looking to expand its facility. “People come to Gardengate to learn, collaborate, purchase produce and connect with the community,” Gardengate manager Robert Wright said. “Personal wellness and community wellness go hand in hand. Participants leave Gardengate with improved self-esteem, greater selfsufficiency and vocational skills that prepare them to enter, or re-enter, the workforce.” The space expansion will allow more people to participate in the program. With the new addition of a commercial kitchen, the program gives participants the opportunity to cultivate more skills, such as cooking, carpentry, sales, marketing and machine maintenance. The cost of the facility expansion is $500,000 and more than $150,000 has been raised so far. To find out more about the project and how to support it, go online to igg.me/at/ Gardengate, call 250-554-9453 or email Robert.wright@opendoorgroup.org.

elcome to the weekly Kamloops Art Page. With the COVID-19 pandemic upending society — socially and economically and dominating news for the foreseeable future — we understand pandemic fatigue can set in for even the most ardent followers of current events. While continuing to cover all pandemic and non-pandemic-related news, KTW has also worked hard at featuring positive stories from the crisis, tales that capture the essence of humanity, be it volunteers sewing thousands of masks for health-care workers or musicians offering up weekly free concerts online. This page is an attempt by KTW to bring some colour into the lives of our readers via

artwork created locally. We hope to, on a weekly basis, use this page to showcase works by various Kamloops artists, with between one and three pieces displayed. Thanks for reading Kamloops This Week and we hope this page can help ease the stress of this uncertain era in which we are living. Email editor@kamloopsthisweek.com if you have any questions or suggestions relating to this page.

Email editor@kamloopsthisweek.com if you have submissions for Kamloops Art Page. EYE SEE YOU, BY PAYTON HEER LLOYD GEORGE ELEMENTARY, GRADE 6 (2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR) I made a bunch of lines, which I made into triangles. Then, I put detailed irises inside of triangles, shading some of them with different colours. I planned on making a flower, but friends told me to try doing an eye.

SEA GLASS WONDER, BY LAUREN MCLEAN LLOYD GEORGE ELEMENTARY, GRADE 6 (2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR) I like making art to calm myself down. It can show my feelings in a way that everybody may see differently. For my painting, I used acrylic paints and some glass stones. I was inspired by a picture I had seen of a goldfish swimming in a tank with tiny bubbles. Creating this piece was a learning experience for me, which is that mistakes can be fixed.

MIDNIGHT SKY, BY KELSI MOSS ARTHUR HATTON ELEMENTARY, GRADE 5 (2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR) Art has always been a favourite hobby of mine. I recently received some chalk pastels and have enjoyed discovering new blending techniques with them. I walk along Rivers Trail daily and love watching the sun rise and sunset. It inspired me to think of what it would look like at midnight with the sky full of colour. Art is a passion of mine and I am excited to showcase my work.

Dig-it: Archaeological discoveries with wow factor MATT BEGG

SPECIAL TO KTW

republicofarchaeology.ca

N

early everyone I meet has at least some interest in archaeology. We benefit from adventurous news and articles showing ancient, lost cities and intrepid archaeologists braving the jungles and deserts of our planet. The reality, of course, isn’t quite as glamorous, but we can still be interesting guests at dinner parties. I suspect all of my colleagues have similar experiences at social gatherings (back when we had those), when meeting new people or, even, when getting a speeding ticket (true story). The inevitable question we are asked is: “What is the most interesting thing you have ever found?” The question prompts a pause, followed by: “Well, that depends.” Different things are interesting for different reasons and, based on responses and reactions over the years, I’ve made the following observations. Really old things are interesting, and if you’re looking for the “wow” response: the older the better. Several years ago, I worked on a field project in central B.C. that resulted in the collection of hundreds of formed, stone tools. There were projectile points spanning the known pre-history in the region, as well as various

MATT BEGG PHOTOS LEFT: A grove of culturally modified trees was found on a mountain top near Lillooet. A discovered projectile point represents one of B.C.’s earliest known tool technologies.

other stone tools. Some of the smaller sites contained all the requisite ingredients for a perfect animal kill and butcher location — the projectile point used to kill the animal, a scraper used to process the hide and some burned bone fragments from where the animal was cooked. However, the coolest find was an unassuming base of a projectile point with basalthinning or flutes removed from both faces. These characteristics suggest it’s from some of the earliest known tool technologies in B.C. and, likely, in excess of 10,000 years old. That’s interesting. Even more interesting are really old things that look like something. The projectile point base described above is really old but requires you to know what you

are looking at. Many years ago, I had the privilege of working in Texas and New Mexico, where I worked at one archaeological site that included artifacts attributed to the tail-end of the last ice age. While the artifacts weren’t much to look at, the mammoth skull at the bottom of the site deposit certainly was. When uncovered, it was upside down and a bit crushed but, still, it looked like a great big mammoth skull. Sure, the site contained a huge amount of data on site formation processes and ancient environments, but the description of the skull always gets the “wow.” People like to learn new things. In B.C., archaeologists have the advantage of working with Indigenous peoples, who are the descendants of the people that made the

archaeology we find. We can learn from these colleagues about how tools were made, used and why we find them where we do. Based on oral tradition and teachings from Indigenous communities, the occupation of these lands since time immemorial is beyond refute, but it is sometimes useful to be able to point at places on a map for those who need this kind of information. For me, the most interesting site I’ve recorded in my career was high up a mountain near Lillooet. In a small area, we recorded hundreds of culturally modified trees, several roasting pits and found many stone tools. Two of these stone tools were projectile points that we assigned to time periods from 1,200 to 3,500 years ago. However, the

most interesting thing was a culturally modified tree growing out of the rim of one of the roasting pits. I cored the tree and determined the cambium-stripping of the tree occurred in the 1960s. All told, we had archaeological evidence showing continued use of the same location (not just the same area or environment, but the same spot) for at least 3,500 years. That goes beyond “wow.” Matt Begg is a Kamloops-based archaeologist. Interested in more? Go online to republicofarchaeology.ca.

FAITH

Is the church still essential today?

I

n these COVID-19 days, the headline to this column could be rephrased as “Should the church be deemed essential?” Considering the restrictions put on religious gatherings during the current pandemic, it is high time to reflect on the role the church can play in normal and abnormal times. It is human nature to feel disconnected from life at times. Feelings of isolation, apathy or loneliness can sometimes overwhelm us, especially when we’re stressed, tired or anxious. If COVID-19 has taught us some glaring lessons, among many it surely pointed us to the fragility and abandonment of human lives. We have seen, read about and, in many circumstances, experienced it ourselves with the deaths of our beloved seniors in care homes. Accentuating the tragedy of losing our relatives, the church has had to be a mute spectator, being herself in isolation. With the benefit of hindsight, it is obvious that isolation and loneliness have played some part in earlier-thannormal demise of some victims of the virus. But, sadly, the mission and vision of a church’s rai-

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have

FAITH

son d’être have been stifled by the authorities when they clamped down on physical meetings and fellowships of the church’s membership. Instead of encouraging the body of Christ to take up the cudgel and minister to the felt needs of suffering neighbours, the attitude of the powers-that-be silenced the role and ministry of a mighty volunteer force in the acutely needed period of alleviating human needs. In any century, whether amid danger or not, we need the church as a body through which faith and fellowship can be expressed. A question may be raised: “Why can’t one serve Christ without belonging to the church?” Of course, there is much the Christian can do outside the church. They have personal virtues to develop. They can love their neighbours in a personal way. They can witness for Christ at their

place of work or neighbourhood. But a Christian cannot discharge their full responsibility apart from the church. They need the church to obey the commands of Christ. Through the church, the individual Christian can do things they could not do alone. Because individual Christians work together, churches can multiply mission work for physical and spiritual rehabilitation of dispossessed people. Christ uses the church as his body to empower us to live lives worthy of him. The Holy Spirit comes to us through the word and sacraments and enables us to live lives and to do good for his glory. When we deliberately separate ourselves and are forced to stay outside the influence of the church, we deny ourselves the four-fold ministries of the church, which have proved to be so effective in the cultivation and the nurture of the Christian faith over the years.

First, there is the ministry of worship. The church must both practise and cultivate the undertaking of the worship of God. This is the true foundation of her purpose, the true meaning of her life, and there can be no Christian faith without it. Secondly, we also deny ourselves the ministry of education. This is a necessary work for an institution that tries to bring nearly two millennia of human experiences to bear on our problems today. The Bible is the central document in our religious tradition and only one who has never studied it seriously can think of it as a simple and easily

understood and quite teachable book. It is no easy task to establish the relevance of biblical teachings to many of the problems we face today. To do this requires not only a knowledge of the Bible, but an acute understanding of the problems that are breaking the minds and the spirits of men today, pandemic or no pandemic. Thirdly, we also deny ourselves the ministry of fellowship, which is fundamental to the church. Historically, the church began in homes of the faithful. The ministry of fellowship begun there continues to be an indispensable part of

the work of the church. We are social beings. We were not meant to live alone, but in communion with each other. When for any reason the bonds that bind us to any given group are severed, instead of being freed, we more frequently feel lost. Finally, anyone who strives to be a Christian without any reference to church would deny himself the ministry of social conscience, which has been articulated in the church over the years. Intellectual integrity requires that we accept the above four facts on the face value of their meaning. And moral integrity requires that

we ask where we fit into the life and the work of the church. If we are interested in the things for which the church stands, then moral integrity requires that we step up and take a position in that part or branch of the church that seems to be doing the best job of receiving and interpreting the tradition itself. Alfred North Whitehead once wrote: “Religion is what a man does with his loneliness.” Insofar as this stresses the importance of personal feeling, belief and

commitment, it is true. But Christianity is more than what we do with our solitariness. It is what we do with our togetherness, as well.

The 45-foot wide by 80-foot long rink allows for on-ice sessions consisting of conditioning and skill development drills using makeshift materials such as tires and two-by-fours.

NHL VETERAN OPENS RINK MICHAEL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

Youth hockey players in need of ice time to train during the COVID-19 pandemic can get NHL-expertise thanks to a former pro-hockey player’s generosity. Former New Jersey Devil and Buffalo Sabre Jan Ludvig — who spent a year in the early 1980s as a Kamloops Junior Oiler — is offering free training clinics to players on his outdoor, backyard rink using makeshift materials. The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented gap in training, with many leagues on hold. Ludvig has 20 acres of space to work with at his home near Logan Lake and figured he could use it to help fill that void. “Hockey gave me everything I have, so I’d like to put something back to it,” said Ludvig, who currently works as a scout for the Boston Bruins. The father of five, who’s hosted hockey camps all over the world, has been building outdoor rinks

for 30 years and put this one up in early December, initially, to give his son John — a Florida Panthers prospect who captained the Portland Winterhawks last year — a place to train. Rather than have the rink sit empty now that his son is at training camp with Florida’s AHL affiliate, Ludvig is hosting the free clinics with help from Stride Performance, which runs an office component the clinics out of a barn on the property. Ludvig also shovelled out an oval on a nearby frozen lake for speed skating. “I was thinking if I was a young hockey player hoping to be drafted or trying to get better and there’s no ice, no coaching, everything is on hold, that could be do or die for somebody who needs the development,” Ludvig said. Ludvig’s most recent guests were a group of second-year peewees who stopped in last Saturday. Due to the pandemic requirement to maintain three-metres

of distance on the 45-foot wide by 80-foot long rink, scrimmages aren’t allowed. On-ice sessions consist of conditioning and skill development drills using makeshift materials such as tires and two-by-fours. It’s an experience, Ludvig described like a step back in time — a stark contrast to the modern-day indoor camps with all the bells and whistles of a game that has become more and more expensive over the years. “Hard work and dedication and paying your dues are never going to change and we can get it done here,” Ludvig said. He said it’s eye-opening to see the amount of work players can get done training with just the basics on an outdoor rink. “Just putting the time and work in because talent, as we are learning in pro sports, is highly overrated. Yes there’s a high level of talent, but besides the superstars … for the majority of the players it’s probably 70 per cent had work and maybe 30 per cent talent,” Ludvig said.

Erin Pincott and Matt Dunstone have applied to test their relationship on a national stage. The Kamloops couple is awaiting word from Curling Canada on whether it will be granted a berth to compete at the Home Hardware Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship, which will be held from March 18 to March 25 in Calgary. “We hope we can get in,” Pincott said. “The dynamic out there is good. We’ve had our moments of greatness and moments when things get a little bit tense out there. I would say Matt is a little bit more outward with his emotions when he misses a shot, where I’m a little bit more inward with it. We have different coping styles.” Team Brown, which includes skip Corryn Brown, third Pincott, second Dezaray Hawes and lead Samantha Fisher, will represent B.C. at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, the first of six major events scheduled to take place inside the Calgary curling bubble. The Scotties will get underway on Feb. 20 and precede, in order, the Tim Hortons Brier, mixed doubles nationals, the World Men’s Curling Championship and two Grand Slam of Curling events, the last of which is expected to conclude in May.

Moskowy, second Kirk Muyres and lead Dustin Kidby, has potential to achieve unprecedented success that could keep him inside the bubble for more than 60 days. “The circumstances for everything are just absolutely wild,” Dunstone said. “If the stars align and we win the Brier, it could be upwards of two months or even a little longer.“It’s still pretty hard to comprehend and I don’t know if I’ll be able to wrap my head around it until we actually get to Calgary.” Team Dunstone was chosen by CurlSask to compete in the Brier, a selection based on results over the past two years, including a Saskatchewan title and third-place finish at the national championship in 2020. Should Dunstone win the 2021 Brier and be granted a spot in the mixed doubles nationals field, along with partner Pincott, then he will compete in every bubble event except the Scotties. The stakes are high and so would be the cost of a positive COVID-19 test. Don’t expect to find Dunstone and Pincott out for dinner at Peter’s Pasta on Valentine’s Day. They are remaining vigilant in efforts to keep virusfree.“The paranoia is real,” Pincott said, noting the couple built a home gym to keep fit in a protected space. Added Dunstone: “Nobody wants to ruin this bubble for everybody. We are doing our part to limit public exposure.”

WHAT IS ROTARY?

Made up of over 34,000 Rotary clubs around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business, professional, and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world – and form strong, lasting friendships in the process.

IN KAMLOOPS

Chefs in the City Reimagined

A new Kamloops dining experience

C

hefs in the City has been the highlight of the culinary season for Kamloops for the past 12 years. Hundreds of people gather each November in the Grand Hall of Thompson Rivers University to sample the wares of the finest local restaurants, wineries and breweries, all in support of the dozens of community groups helped by the Rotary Club of Kamloops. Needless to say, with COVID restrictions on gatherings, that event didn’t take place in November 2020. But now, Chefs in the City is back – reimagined. “We wanted to come up with something that was COVID-safe that would let us still raise funds for Rotary projects, but at the same time support the restaurants, wineries and breweries that have sponsored the event for so many years,” says Tim Shoults, president of the Rotary Club of Kamloops. The plan is to create three monthly events, on the last Monday or Tuesday of January, February and March 2021, with multiple participating restaurants on each night. Each restaurant will have a local winery or brewery as their beverage partner, and will serve guests a "tasting menu" or "tapas" style meal of four to five smaller courses (adding up to a full meal's value) along with a tasting flight or 2 glasses of beer or wine. Each night will have a theme, so each restaurant will have a relatively similar offering on the same night. Diners will buy a ticket for the night in general, then will be assigned to one of the participating restaurants for a fabulous dine-in experience.

Our motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide.

ROTARY CLUB OF KAMLOOPS AURORA CENTENNIAL

Photo courtesy Geoff Collier The first sitting of Chefs in the City reimagined is happening this coming Monday (Jan. 25) with the theme "Flavours of the West Coast”. The participating restaurants include Earls Kamloops, the Twisted Olive Steakhouse and Romeo’s Kitchen & Spirits, with Monte Creek Ranch Winery, Harper’s Trail Winery and Fort Berens Estate Winery providing the libations. Other restaurants have confirmed for the February and March events, including Cordo Resto + Bar, the Harvest Restaurant and Lounge and Mittz Kitchen. Tickets are $75 each, with a special group rate of $200 to buy a ticket to all 3 nights in January, February and March. Of that, the local restaurants and wineries will get $55, leaving $20 for Rotary to fund programs. “You get to support Rotary and our local restaurants at the same time,” says Shoults. Over the past 12 years, Chefs in the City has raised more than $400,000, allowing the Rotary Club of Kamloops to

fund more than $110,000 in programs and renovations at the Kamloops Food Bank, more than $60,000 in TRU Culinary Arts student bursaries, and more than $230,000 for programs for underprivileged kids in Kamloops as well as international clean water and education programs. The Reimagined Chefs is made possible through the generous title sponsorship of Valley First – a Division of First West Credit Union, which has sponsored Chefs for many years. This Monday’s instalment will be dine-in only; however, in response to significant demand, the club is planning a home delivery option for the second night in February, with local Rotarians delivering the meals to those who aren’t able to make it to a restaurant or who aren’t comfortable dining in just yet. Tickets are available online at trellis.org/chefsinthecity, and more information is available online at www.chefsinthecity.ca or by email to chefsinkamloops@gmail.com.

SUDOKU FUN BY THE NUMBERS

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Aries, you will get great satisfaction from various activities this week. Therefore, fill your schedule with plenty of things. Take initiative and invite friends along for an adventure.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Take care of yourself this week, Taurus. Practicing self-care may mean booking a spa treatment or simply catching up on a little rest and recuperation.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 A few different scenarios may play out in the days to come. They may be greatly influenced by how you interact with other people, Gemini. You are the catalyst for action.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer be careful with the way you behave and present yourself this week. You just don’t know who may be watching what you do. Keep a low profile.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Receiving mixed messages, Leo? Enlist a trusted advisor to help you sort through the hazy level of communication that is coming your way. Another perspective is handy.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, this week the stars may be playing tricks on you. You may stumble though a few things, but it won’t take long to get back on the right path.

LIBRA

JANUARY 20 - JANUARY 26, 2021 CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20

- Sept 23/Oct 23

Libra, as soon as things get serious this week, you may be ready to make a fast exit. It’s better if you stick around and lend your opinion to the situation at hand.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22

A lot of unknown factors have been slowing you down over the last few weeks, Scorpio. Now that you are no longer impeded, you can put a plan in motion.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You may get caught up in some conflicts that you’re either not ready for or have no interest to deal with, Sagittarius. Take it all in quietly for now.

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MEDIA.

Don’t try to rationalize the feelings that are moving through you this week, Capricorn. There is no right or wrong way to feel. Acknowledge the emotions as they come.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, do not hide your feelings in a particularly moving situation. Others will empathize with you and appreciate your emotional honesty.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20

This week you may want to get away from it all to have a different perspective on your life, Pisces. You may travel even further than first imagined.

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.           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,                Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Vivian Nancy Trottier August 9, 1952 - January 21,2020

In loving memory of Vivian: Vivian Nancy Trottier was born in Courtenay, BC on August 9, 1952, daughter to Peter and Byrl Marano. Vivian left her hometown at a relatively young age to live in Victoria, BC. After residing in Victoria she then moved to the lower mainland area for a period of time. Eventually she moved to Prince George in 1984 and met her husband, Pierre Trottier, in 1986. After having their first son, Thomas in 1988, they decided to relocate to Kamloops. Soon after having their second son, Philip, in 1990. Vivian would then call Kamloops her home for the next 30 years. Vivian worked in numerous fields over her life including gardening/landscaping. She graduated from Olds College of Horticulture with honours in 1995. Gardening would end up being one of her favourite passions, and she took with her a wealth of knowledge of plants of all types. Vivian was a model example of intellect, humility, honesty and compassion. She was a very dedicated person, always doing her best whether it was her career or raising her children.

by Dylan Thomas

Thursday, January 21st, marks the one year anniversary of Vivian passing away at the Kamloops Hospice, after a year long battle with leukemia. Vivian will forever be in the hearts of her loved ones and deeply missed.

Donald (Don) E. Powell

Vivian is survived by her brother Gordon Marano and her two children Thomas and Philip Trottier, ex-husband Pierre Trottier.

September 23, 1936 - January 12, 2021 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of father and husband Don Powell, January 12, 2021. Dad was born in Goderich, Ontario and he and mom (Wilma) moved to BC in 1957 to start their newly married life. Sadly Mom passed away in 1984 and Dad met Helen Samila in 1987. Dad is survived by his two daughters Betty-Lou (Gary) Ohashi, Linda Fowles (Nick Decicco), Steve Fowles and of course Helen. He is also survived by his three grandsons Gregory Ohashi (Robbie), Jason Fowles and Justin (Chelsea) Fowles as well as Helen’s children Nadine, Brian, Dave, Dean and their children. Don is survived too by his brothers Graham (Brenda), Gene (Rita) and his sister Muriel McGuire along with several nieces and nephews. Dad was predeceased by his sisters Marion Covey and Marg Norris and by his brother Gordon. Dad began his career on the oil tankers in Ontario. He continued working in the oil industry in BC for many years where he worked at the oil refinery here in Kamloops until 1995 when he retired from the distribution terminal. Next to his family the outdoors was Dad’s passion. Often accompanied by Helen’s grandchildren Jake, Cassidy and Payton, Dad and Helen could be found on any lake in BC sharing their love of the outdoors and fishing with the kids. Coupled with a few “cold ones� if there was a fish to be found Dad was determined to find it not caring about the number of hours spent to do so. When Dad wasn’t fishing he enjoyed “monkey-wrenching� with either his brother Graham or son-inlaw Gary. There wasn’t much Dad couldn’t fix or at least try his best to fix. We will miss our “Mr. Fix-it� also know as our Dad, dearly. Due to the restrictions of COVID in place, there will be no service at this time - it is our hope we can hold a service for Dad later in the spring. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations are made to the Royal Inland Hospital in Dad’s memory.

Kathleen Dorothy Ellen Lily Whitten (nĂŠe Finley) 04 February 1940 - 20 January 2020

Kathleen, or more commonly referred to as Katie, was born in Armstrong, BC on 04 February 1940 to Roderick R. Finley and Ethel B. Williams (Finley). Katie passed at Royal Inland Hospital in 2020 with her loving daughter, Tiffany, by her side. Katie married the love of her life, Joseph Edward Whitten. They were graced with two incredible children; Trevor and Tiffany. Katie’s life was filled with so much joy by being a mother. Many Kamloopsians’ may recall her dedication to community with her role as a dispatcher for Howe’s Taxi. Katie was always there on the other end of the phone to ensure you got home safe, provided wake-up call or just talk. She loved this job primarily due to her “gift of gab.� Katie was known for her love of Bingo with her mother. As Katie grew older, she developed many medical conditions that were hard on her and family. Despite her health, she always put her kids and grandkids first. She loved family with all her heart. Katie is remembered by; Trevor and Cindy and their son Calvin, along with Trevor’s eldest son Jerry Popadyntz, Tiffany and her daughter Ariel Maki, her brothers Roderick and Lee, Robert and Barb, and Richard and Linda, along with many nieces, nephews, and friends. Kathleen is now safe, in the arms, of her loving spouse, Joe. She is now at peace and we like to believe she is having a great time playing Heaven Bingo!

Brian Leonard Brown

Brian was born in Princeton, BC. Due to his fathers’ career with the RCMP, his family was also stationed in Merritt and Falkland. Finally moving to Kamloops when Brian was the age of 10. Growing up in Brocklehurst, Brian graduated from NorKam Secondary. During his early 20s, he was in the Armed Forces for 3 years, training as an Airframe Technician and then going to Cariboo College, achieving 1st year Welding. This led to various gainful employment throughout BC and NWT, eventually leading him back to Kamloops. Many Kamloopians will remember Brian’s kindness, gentle nature, special sense of humour and deep empathy during his 19 years as a driver for the HandyDart. It was during the early years as a HandyDart driver where he met his beloved “Brown Eyed Girl” Penny Lynn, who later became his wife. It goes without saying, one of his greatest attributes was stepping up to be an awesome step-dad to Penny’s three sons. He was immensely proud of them and their successes into adulthood. In the years that followed, Brian and Penny together, welcomed their daughter Shira Denae, who completed their family. He had an individual special bond with each of his children. Shira, being the only daughter was and always will be daddy’s girl. In 2007, following the passing of his brother Craig, he and Penny took on the role of raising Craig’s granddaughter Jordan. The years following where kept busy raising his family and working for HandyDart, but Brian longed for something more. He returned to Post Secondary Education, achieving his Finishing Carpenters Certificate. This career choice took him in many different directions, Fulfilling his passion for woodwork. During these years he continued to enjoy the growth of his family, welcoming seven grandchildren, which led to his true calling and passion, working with Special Needs Children and Youth at Risk. This path led to the further expansion of his family, welcoming Brian’s special little buddy, Seth, who Seth fondly referred to as Papa.

14 October 1930 Enderby, BC - 2 January 2021 Enderby, BC Born beneath the Enderby Cliffs to parents Clifford and Ruby, on a small farm in the 1930s there was plenty to eat but not much else. Upon graduation, Eleanore took a business course in Vernon and then worked and lived there. In 1951 she married Bruce Bolton, and followed where his work led: 50 miles inland from Prince Rupert along the Skeena River at Kwinitsa and Pacific, neither of which exist anymore; 25 years in Kamloops; 15 years on their ranch at Six Mile Creek out of Vernon; and then an active retirement outside of Enderby along the river. Service to others has been a constant in Eleanore’s life starting as a teenager teaching Sunday school at St. George’s Anglican Church and finishing with the North Okanagan Livestock Association and 25 years as treasurer for the Armstrong/Enderby Historical Society. In between, and sometimes consecutively, Eleanore served in various capacities within Kamloops’ St. Paul’s Cathedral, Mt. Paul Figure Skating Club, Parent Teacher Associations, Light Horse Club, Progressive Conservative Party, 4H Beef Clubs. As founding director of Marion Hilliard House in Kamloops, Eleanore established a valued service from the 1950s until the time when pregnant unmarried women no longer needed to hide away to protect their family and themselves from stigma. Always with extra guests is how Christmas and New Years dinners are remembered by Eleanore’s children: student nurses from the Royal Inland Hospital who couldn’t get away for the holidays, elderly persons with no relatives in the area, young women from Marion Hilliard House. And throughout the year house guests sometimes relatives or old friends, sometimes complete strangers. A small funeral is being held by Eleanore’s three children and their spouses: Bruce and Ivy, now in Salmon Arm; Brenda and John (Heywood) now in Kingfisher; Byron and Sheryl now in Vernon. Post-COVID there will be a Celebration of Life for the attendance of friends and relatives and Eleanore’s nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Eleanore and Bruce (deceased 2018) will be interred in the Enderby Cemetery near Eleanore’s Enderby pioneer parents.

Throughout Brian’s life, with all his experiences and career choices, trying to find a calm, internal peace, Brian continued to combat Mental Health and Substance Abuse. Although he tried many times successfully to battle his demons, through multiple Recovery, Treatment and Support programs, the internal war continued. Even though this took a toll on his life, loved ones, family, trying desperately to fight, in the end he lost the battle.

Leo Treichel It is with sadness, but also a sense of peace that we send Leo Samuel Treichel, beloved husband, father, grandpa, brother and uncle onto the next stage of his life’s journey.

Brian’s family and loved ones will deeply miss his sick sense of humour (LOL), his papa bear demeanour, and his unique style of communication. He had a way of making those around him feel loved, at ease and that they mattered.

Leo was born, April 11, 1933, in Rosenfeld, Manitoba. He was the fourth child and oldest son of Martha and Samuel. Leo leaves behind his adoring wife of 62 years, Jeanette, his children Paul, Jody (Andy), and Jon (Jackie); his grandchildren Amanda (and great-grandson Jonathan), Jason, Alison (Adam), Jaime (Ryan), David (Hannah), Cameron, Zac, and Benjamin; his siblings Della, Laura, Eleanor, Ruth, Hannah, Esther, Ernie and their spouses; and his many nephews, nieces, grand-nephews and grandnieces.

Don’t hate the addict, hate the disease Don’t hate the person, hate the behaviour If it’s hard to watch it, imagine how hard It must be to live it. Due to Covid, a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers if so desired, donations to the Phoenix Center or RMH project Kamloops would be appreciated.

Leo had an exceptionally big heart. He loved his family and friends, and so often commented on his many blessings. He was a man with a true heart for God, and as he approached the end of his life on earth, he faced his death with total confidence that he was heading to his eternal home.

Leo always approached life with enthusiasm and never shied away from a new challenge or opportunity. During Leo’s lifetime he was: both a school and School District principal, a teacher, a coach, a volunteer ambulance driver, a marriage commissioner, part-time rancher/cowboy, jail guard, avid gardener, fire fighter, and general handyman. No matter the community, if someone called or knocked on his door, Leo’s answer to a request for help was, “Yes.” Details regarding plans for a Celebration of Leo’s Life will be made available when we are once again able to gather and meet in large groups. The family is hopeful that we will be able to gather by August or September 2021. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please send a donation to Kamloops Hospice Association. Condolences may be sent to the family at drakecremation.com

Inez Smith On January 9, 2021 we lost a beautiful woman, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Left to cherish her memories are her loving husband Allan, daughter Maria (Keith), grandson Rob, brother-in-law Roger (Lynn), sisterin-law Jane (Bill, deceased), nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grand-nephews. Inez was born November 8, 1944 at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, to Robert and Cacilie Schmaltz and big sister Maria. She lost her sister at age 11 but was gifted with her niece Mona. She met the love of her life in 1963 and they were married the following year and had their only daughter December 1964. The first years of their marriage they moved around finally settling in Logan Lake the fall of 1972.

January 7th Steve Sanesh left us at the age of 77 to be with Jesus after a brief and humble battle with cancer. He will be deeply missed by his children: Rebecca, Cathy (Mike), Desmond (Elizabeth), Natalie (Barry), and Gregory. He leaves behind eleven grandchildren (Trisha will ever be dear to him) and two great grandchildren as well as his siblings: Rose, Katie, and Bill (Karen). Dad came from the school of hard knocks and was known for not holding back his opinion if he didn’t agree with you. He was not afraid of hard work and was always up for a good time. He could play the accordion and was pretty good at it too. In his early years he logged with horses in Trinity Valley. Eventually he sold that accordion and bought a train car full of insulation and started insulating houses at night. He owned several small businesses most notably Western RooďŹ ng Ltd (1973). He liked his four letter words and ďŹ ne leather shoes. When invited out for dinner he would always order the most expensive thing on the menu. His regrets were few, but did include riding the wooden roller coaster in Vancouver in 1967. Where Dad came from, how much he had and where he found himself years later, he was always proud of his faith. Steve’s word of advice, “Always advance your education.â€? He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth. Due to Covid restrictions, a Funeral Mass was held at the Sacred Heart Cathedral, Kamloops, BC followed by an intimate Christian Burial which took place at the Hillside Cemetery.

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director Every Wednesday in KTW! Q. What do you do if Murray says “No service by request?� A. Invite some friends and family over for a pot luck and set a place for Murray. Maybe put his picture and urn where he used to sit and serve up a plate of his favourite snacks. Tell some stories about him. Is that a “service�?

May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of despair

THE ANGEL ON YOUR SHOULDER By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

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

She was a giving and compassionate person who not only gave of herself to her family and friends but to her community as well. In 1973 she helped establish the L.L. Pioneer the first paper for the community. She was responsible for getting the Welcoming Committee set up in Logan Lake and spent many years involved with it. She joined Victims Services and E.S.S. as well as serving on the Logan Lake Health Advisor and later the Health Support Society, until she went into Gillis House in 2018. Inez was honoured in 1993 with the Citizen of the Year award and in 2014 was recognized by the RCMP for 20 years as a member of Victims Services. The family would like to extend heart filled thanks to the healthcare workers and staff of Gillis House in Merritt for taking such good care of Inez these past two years. We would like to send a special thank you to our home-care worker, Crystal, who treated Inez like family and always made her feel special. A Celebration of life will be held when we can gather. Memorial donations may be made to Gillis House in Merritt or Arthritis Society of BC.

Call to place your announement at 250-371-4949 Jennifer Anne Wildgoose Jennifer Anne Wildgoose (nĂŠe Davidson), age 70, with her family by her bedside, passed away January 11, 2021 at Trinity Hospice in Kamloops, BC. Jenny was born January 24, 1950 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England to Don and Audrey Davidson. As a teenager she worked at the Trebor Sweet Factory, and while attending nursing school, worked evenings as an Event Hostess at The Aquarius Nightclub. On her lunch break, she married her best friend, Ian Wildgoose, April of 1969 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England. October 1973, Jenny, Ian and their daughter Amanda packed up everything they owned, caught a plane, and took a train across Canada to immigrate to Kamloops, BC. Jenny worked at the Fields Department Store until she achieved her Medical Office Assistant designation. Jenny was first employed as an M.O.A. at the Irving Clinic, and then with Dr. David Ritenburg from 1980 to 2010. Jenny volunteered as a Brownie and Girl Guide Leader, and in the early 1980s cocreated the Kamloops competition chapter of St. John Ambulance Cadets. She was “Auntie Jennâ€? to the neighbourhood kids, and to her grandsons, “Nano.â€? She was also known for her generosity, offering up the spare room to anyone who needed a “leg up.â€? Jenny was a great host to her legendary Christmas Eve parties, where she would lead everyone to sing and dance to her husbands’ band in their basement. Jenny loved to read, play tennis and swim, as well as create gifts through sewing, crocheting and needlepoint. She enjoyed frequently travelling to England and Las Vegas, and spending weekends camping and fishing with her husband Ian. Jenny is survived by her husband Robert Ian Wildgoose (Kamloops, BC), her daughter Amanda and husband Shane Osborne (Kelowna, BC), grandsons Austen and Brody Osborne (Calgary, AB), sister Gwynneth Williams (Penticton, BC)and her many nephews and nieces, and great nephews and nieces in England and Canada. All of these she loved so deeply. Jenny is predeceased by her parents Don and Audrey Davidson (Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England), brother Michael Davidson (Matlock, Derbyshire, England). Cremation services were performed at Drake’s Funeral Services in Kamloops, BC. Due to travel restrictions, a virtual tribute to Jenny’s life will be posted on Facebook, and a Celebration of Life will be scheduled in Kamloops, BC the summer of 2021. Her family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Jenny’s care team at Trinity Hospice. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Kamloops S.P.C.A., where she adopted three wonderful dogs. A Memorial Page has been created at the Kamloops S.P.C.A.
