WHAT WE MISS

YKASTRONG

Exactly one year ago tomorrow, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be a global pandemic. Restrictions imposed by government have changed the way we live. On this one-year anniversary of the pandemic declaration, we asked KTW readers what they miss the most and what they have learned. We also asked the Kamloops Art Council to weigh in via art.

TURN TO PAGES A12, A13 AND A14 TO READ MORE.

This image includes words used by KTW readers as they responded to our request for what they have missed most and what they have learned in the past year. The word cloud shows how often words appeared in their responses — the larger the text, the more frequently used by our readers.

INTERIOR HEALTH PHOTO Kelsey Medhurst was the first COVID-19 vaccine recipient in Kamloops on Dec. 22, 2020. Administering the vaccine is public health nurse Kyla Cook.

The number to call to book a vaccination appointment is 1-877740-7747. The call centre is open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The public is reminded to follow a staggered approach to prevent long waits and system overload: • Beginning March 8: Seniors born in or before 1931 (90 years and older) and Indigenous people born in or before 1956 (65 years and older) may call to book their vaccine appointment; • Beginning March 15: Seniors born in or before 1936 (85 years and older) may call to book their vaccine appointment; • Beginning March 22: Seniors born in or before 1941 (80 years and

older) may call to book their vaccine appointment. Interior Health is also reminding residents to be vigilant against fraud. Call centres will never ask for financial information, credit card details or social insurance numbers. The call centre will only ask for legal name, date of birth, postal code, personal health number (PHN) from the back of B.C. drivers’ licences or BC services cards and current contact information, including an email address you or your family checks regularly or a phone number that can receive text messages.   A full list of IH clinic sites is online at news.interiorhealth.ca/news/ covid-19-vaccines/.

COVID-19 vaccines being booked now KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Interior Health is confident it will have enough doses of COVID-19 vaccines to immunize all those who wish to be inoculated against the disease. But the health authority is asking the public to be patient as the call centre for appointments opened this week. Karen Bloemink, Interior Health’s vice-president of pandemic response, said any delays experienced by the call centre will be addressed. Immunization clinic locations will be confirmed at the time of booking, with vaccinations starting as early as March 15. There are 49 clinics in the Interior Health region, which stretches from the Chilcotin in the west to the B.C./Alberta border in the east and from the Williams Lake area in the north

SPECIAL PURCHASE! 2019

to the B.C./Washington border in the south. In Kamloops, a clinic at the McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre in North Kamloops will open on March 15, while a clinic at the Tournament Capital Centre on the TRU campus will open on March 22. Bloemink said 400,000 people are expected to be vaccinated in B.C. by early April, a number that represents about eight per cent of the province’s estimated population of 5.1 million. Bloemink noted appointments are being booked for first doses only, with Interior Health then contacting people when a second dose is to be administered. The province recently extended the time between first and second shots to four months in a bid to first immunize more people with

at least one shot. Canada has approved four vaccines, with Johnson & Johnson’s product — the only single-shot inoculation — getting the green light on March 5. The federal government has ordered 10-million doses, which are expected to arrive between April and June. Those seeking to get immunized will not be able to choose which vaccine they receive and will be inoculated with what is on hand at various clinics. While appointments are being taken on a staggered basis, age group by age group, week by week, Bloemink said people can book any time they wish once their demographic becomes eligible to call. People cannot call ahead of their eligible booking date. “We are very confident we will have vaccines available for

those that want to receive an immunization,” Bloemink said, noting Interior Health is working closely with the national supply chain. As for those who cannot make it to the vaccination sites, Bloemink said Interior Health is urging friends and family of such residents to help with booking appointments and with transportation. She said health officials are working with known clients with mobility issues and asking the call centre to gather information for those who cannot get to a site so there is a plan for them to get vaccinated. “As we move forward with opening access to vaccines to increasing age groups, we will be adapting locations and availability of clinics across the geography of Interior Health,” Bloemink said.

A resident who tried to improve their Juniper Ridge view has been fined $27,000 for violating the city’s tree protection bylaw. City of Kamloops parks manager Jeff Putnam said the court system awarded the city the money after about seven city trees were cut to improve sight lines. Putnam confirmed to KTW the incident was one previously reported by this newspaper. Kamloops This Week earlier spoke to a Juniper Ridge resident who in the summer of 2019 noticed trees topped on the eastern edge of the Valleyview Nature Park on adjacent private property on Finlay Avenue. At the time, the resident described a fence that ran between the park and private property and trees topped on both sides of the fence. Putnam said the city bylaw was strengthened to protect the city’s tree canopy, including penaliza-

tion of private landowners who cut down city trees. Violations of the city’s tree protection bylaw can result in fines of between $1,000 and $10,000 per event. “When people destroy trees that aren’t even theirs, that’s a very serious offence,” Putnam said. Putnam said the $27,000 in fines are going toward cost recovery in the city’s community services department, as well as toward public education around the tree protection bylaw. Putnam said the city will create an educational video. As for the message to the public in wake of the hefty fines?

“No one has the right to damage or remove a tree that’s on public lands,” he said. Putnam said the responsibility lies with the city and province of British Columbia and noted the city spends hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in order to manage its tree canopy. “Bottom line is we want to retain as many trees and urban forest as we can,” he said, noting a health tree canopy aids the community in adapting to climate change. In addition to beefing up tree protection, the city is working toward planting more trees each year to improve its tree canopy.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Kamloops is slowly increasing tree canopy jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The city fell shy of its tree planting goal last year, but says it is seeing growth to its overall tree canopy. During Monday’s civic operations committee meeting, members of city council heard the city planted 160 trees in 2020, falling short of a goal to plant 200 trees. Trees were planted last year in cemeteries, on McArthur Island and in the Dufferin Wetlands. Species included oak, aspen, Japanese lilac and pine. City parks manager Jeff Putnam said the COVID-19 pandemic was the reason the city fell short of its goal. The city has previously said parks usage was up significantly during the pandemic, leading to more wear and tear on the land — and requiring more staff time for upkeep as a result. A report noted funding for capital projects

the tree is replaced. Meanwhile, Putnam said that since the city sought to make improvements to its tree canopy in the better part of the past decade, numbers have jumped in six or seven years from 12 per cent to nearly 16 per cent. The goal is a tree canopy of 20 per cent. “We’ve taken a huge jump in the last six or seven years,” Putnam said. Putnam credited the city’s tree coupon program. Hundreds of tree coupons provide discounted trees to private landowners on an annual basis. Putnam said 560 tree coupons were redeemed last year. Multiply it by several years and such a program makes a difference, he noted. In addition, he said, pine trees were lost in Kenna Cartwright seven years ago, but pines grow quite quickly. In the six-year span between 2015 and 2020, city staff have planted 946 trees in Kamloops.

The financial statements and any reports to be presented at the meeting will be available for inspection at the TNRD Civic Building from Thursday March 18, 2021 to Wednesday March 24, 2021. Due to COVID-19 an appointment will be required to view the documents.

was placed on hold, grant availability was lacking and tree-planting events were cancelled. Putnam said a posting for a new arborist, approved earlier by council during budget talks, is closing. One task by the new staffer will include working with the city’s development department to ensure accountability on behalf of developments with respect to landscaping requirements. The city already collects landscaping deposits as part of its development process. Putnam said the new staffer will be involved in approving development plans and will also go back to developers following completion of plans to provide accountability and ensure trees were planted to match the plans. In addition, city CAO David Trawin said, the staffer will look at developments years down the road. Should a tree die in four or five years, the city will follow up to ensure

While the process is less complicated when both of you agree to the divorce, the amount of documentation that you need to prepare and the steps you need to take can still be complex and confusing. It becomes even more complicated when children are involved, because the court won’t grant your divorce until it’s satisfied that your children’s needs are being met. This means that both you and your spouse need to provide the court with affidavit evidence setting out the plan to support your children once you are divorced.

THE KTW EDITORIAL

WE SHOULD ALL BE THE LORAX IN OUR CITY Page A6 in today’s newspaper has an interesting story regarding the court system levying a $27,000 fine against a Juniper Ridge resident who cut the tops off about seven trees to improve the view from the residence. The tree toppings were reported by KTW in the summer of 2019 and followed another story that detailed an attack on trees in Aberdeen, where someone drilled holes and injected poison into the trunks of 11 pines in an apparent attempt to kill them, ostensibly for that almighty view of the river valley. That incident was still before the courts the last time we checked in with the file. The $27,000 fine handed out in the Juniper case amounts to almost $4,000 per tree damages and is on the lower end of what the city’s bylaw allows — fines of between $1,000 and $10,000 per tree damaged or killed. With the city on a years-long campaign to increase its tree canopy — it has grown it to 16 per cent from 12 per cent in the past halfdecade by planting nearly 1,000 trees — it is imperative that education be paired with appropriate punishment. Is $27,000 enough punishment/deterrent for attacking seven trees for a selfish purpose? Perhaps, Perhaps not. But fines of some amount are needed in every instance a resident decides to assault a tree on city-owned property for invalid reasons (the issue of tree removal on private property under development is another issue altogether). The Lorax spoke for the trees and it is good to see the city doing likewise. We should all speak for the trees. Robert W. Doull President Aberdeen Publishing Inc. EDITORIAL Publisher: Robert W.

The work will not stop

I

t’s been an interesting few weeks as council has tried to address social issues we hear about so often. There were a couple of blunders, not done out of malice, but simply because the issues are challenging and solutions aren’t always apparent. That’s not to malign the social agencies and city staff who work daily on the many ways these challenges arise, from dealing with riverbank camps to complaints from business and residents about theft to just trying to get some of the folks on the street access to the health care they desperately need. It’s all a reality we struggle to address. At city hall, staff have been bringing in changes they hope will help. One of the key points is a threeyear strategic plan for the community and protective services department. The first step has been taken as what we have always known as the bylaws department has been renamed community services and bylaw officers are now known as community services officers. They are being trained to do all facets of the job, from working in the RCMP detachment cells to issuing parking tickets to cleaning up those camps. Next up is to strengthen how the city addresses social issues,

CITY HALL recognizing all Kamloopsians are impacted by them in some way. The plan requires more supports immediately for staff to not only continue to address the issues, but to also co-ordinate their approaches. And to make it more imperative, there is one more reality that factors in — some of the key people doing this work are nudging retirement age and the need to share knowledge they have is necessary. There is now a job posting for a new position of a social and housing manager. A contracted position that runs the city’s communitybased program aimed at reducing and, ideally, preventing homelessness will become a city staff position. The new researcher-in-residence shared with Thompson Rivers University will be asked if she can

look at a housing strategy for the city, map community resources and probe neighbourhood capacity building. In the meantime, we are all going to continue talking with — and listening to — experts on these issues. We are going to keep lobbying senior government levels for more support. We are going to continue pushing Interior Health for another Car 40 (a program that matches a Mountie with a nurse to respond to mental-health calls) and a sobering centre. We will continue to discuss other ideas and strategies — and we will probably also make more blunders along the way. It’s bound to happen when dealing with such challenging, complex issues. But the point is we aren’t stopping. As Byron McCorkell, the city’s director of community and protective services director, said when he brought the plan to council, we will keep on “working toward building programs and safe neighbourhoods that support an outstanding quality of life” for all of us.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

TNRD BOARD SHOULD NOT SET UP SPENDING REVIEW Editor: As documented in recent Kamloops This Week articles, spending in the ThompsonNicola Regional District under former CAO Sukh Gill was frequent, inappropriate and exorbitant by any standard, yet the first public comments from board chair Ken Gillis and some board members were to defend this spending. As the details became public knowledge, the tone of comments from the board began to shift from defence to remorse and reassurance that changes had

been made. We were told these grievous matters were being addressed and policies were being enacted to avoid misuse of funds in the future. The TNRD board and the TNRD as a government entity has lost much credibility. Taxpayers are demanding basic ethical practices be upheld and accountability must be transparently reviewed. Gillis now feels a third-party review will quiet community outrage. To truly be transparent, it is

critical how the third-party review is constructed. The KTW article suggests the board will set the terms of reference, the issues to be investigated and the timeperiod to be considered. Given that the TNRD board was beneficiary of much of the spending, the Kamloops Voters Society does not think it is prudent to have the people who were party to the expenditures be solely responsible for directly overseeing the audit. Further, the suggestion by Gillis to undertake a review comes more than a year after expen-

diture irregularities were first known by the board and there is concern the review may simply be a ploy by the board to manage public outrage, rather than clearly investigate spending details. In discussion with the province, and to ensure legitimacy of the review, the Kamloops Voters Society recommends an oversight committee be established among existing Kamloops organizations and external organizations with expertise in government budgeting. This committee would serve as an arm’s-length, indepen-

dent party to oversee the review process. The committee would develop the terms of reference, select the audit firm and provide oversight during the review. In addition, the society would like to see the external review include an assessment of how the TNRD board conducted the CAO’s annual performance reviews and how the board’s oversight of the former CAO’s performance contributed to a further $500,000plus payment to the former CAO. Randy Sunderman board member Kamloops Voters Society

TRUST IN POLITICIANS HITS A NEW LOW WITH TNRD DETAILS Editor: The greed and absence of moral compass among this Thompson-Nicola Regional District gang is remarkable. Many are long-term politicians. Networking with staff over (unlimited taxpayer-funded) drinks is a practise that speaks volumes. I didn’t know alcohol elevates IQ and EQ, thereby yielding better planning and decisions.

One could see this group now discussing (over drinks) how there was no way to know their self-indulgence was unacceptable and unethical. No one told them! Unfortunately, it seems politics attracts these characteristics. I recall MP David Dingwall a dozen or so years ago famously saying, “I’m entitled to my entitlements.” A huge thanks to Kamloops resident

Jacob Adams for taking a stand and protesting the TNRD spending controversy — and especially to KTW’s Jessica Wallace for the amazing reporting. The importance of a local newspaper has never been more evident. This spending excess would not have been revealed without the work of Kamloops This Week. Carl Pentilchuk Kamloops

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

COMPASSION ON DISPLAY AT MEETING Editor: In an age in which political cynicism seems rampant, I so appreciated last week’s special meeting of Kamloops council to consider many of the complex issues affecting Kamloops around social housing and appropriate engagement with, and support of, those living on our streets. Several councillors described this lengthy deep dive into issues and strategies around homelessness and poverty as a high water mark for deliberation on social issues. There is no quick and single solution to an increasingly prevalent and overwhelming problem. The conversation was well supported by informed staff and the mayor ran a tight and, at times, complicated meeting. There was much compassion on display. Thanks to all who participated and we all look forward to seeing strategic and specific measurable progress on behalf of all Kamloops citizens. Ken Gray Kamloops

IT’S PAST TIME TO STOP TIME CHANGE Editor: The semi-annual time change arrives this weekend, with clocks being moved ahead one hour on Sunday, March 14. With many British Columbians not wanting to change clocks, it is time to stop with the time change. Let’s look at how many places do not change, noting the rest of the world adjusts to them.

These places include Saskatchewan, Arizona, Hawaii, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Southampton Islands, Peace River Regional District and parts of Ontario and Quebec. Changing the clocks twice per year sends our circadian rhythm out of control for a time. How important is our health versus changing clocks to gain some daylight at the end of the day?

We should not need to check with other governments to determine if it is OK to stop the time change. We in British Columbia can and should make our own decisions. Let’s not waste any more time. Let’s be ourselves and take a stand. Or do we have puppets in place of our elected officials? W.R.Travis Kamloops

AFTER THE FALL, SO MANY GOOD SAMARITANS Editor: On Feb. 20, I was walking in my neighbourhood and took a bad fall. Immediately, four Good Samaritans, only one of whom I knew, rushed to help.

Two calmed me down and helped me up, one with a first-aid ticket stopped to see if she was needed and Kathy, a nurse at Royal Inland Hospital, checked me out for a concussion and drove me home, along with

Betty, who made sure I was taken care of once I got inside. I am OK and thankful for the caring neighbours in Valleyview. Patricia May, Kamloops

ANOTHER FIREARMS POLICY DISASTER IN OTTAWA Editor: What is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s obsession with firearms? If he did his homework, he would learn that in the past 20 years, there have been fewer than 100 people with a firearms licence that have committed a crime

using their firearm. We all remember the Liberal Party’s long gun registry (Bill C-68) in 1995, a total disaster that closed after 16 years at a cost of $2 billion of taxpayers’ money. What Trudeau is doing is an old political tactic — get the people talking about

something else so they will not talk about the COVID-19 vaccine rollout and his handling of it. I know which party I will not be voting for in the next federal election. Jerry Hamonic Kamloops

hen your main activities involve producing large-scale events, a pandemic hits hard. So was the case for the Kamloops Arts Council. Known for taking the arts out to the community through a number of wellloved outdoor festivals, the venerable organization (founded 1968) had to suddenly put the brakes on Art in the Park on Canada Day, the Children’s Arts Festival, and the Rivertown Players. Even arts workshops through its Crossing Bridges Outreach had to be temporarily cancelled. But true to form, the Arts Council

came up with some creative ways to meet the challenge of COVID-19. “Art in the Park Reimagined” featured a number of local artists selling their works online. The Rivertown Players, a children’s theatre troupe that normally performs its original plays outdoors, was able to livestream their shows online so that kids could watch from home. The Children’s Arts Festival was also retooled, and rescheduled, to an online format in December. Young people tuned in to crafts, stories, songs and workshops delivered by a number of local artists. Artist instructors in the Crossing

Bridges program, which takes workshops to youth, adults and seniors facing challenges, made up “creative care packages” for participants so that they could continue to do art from home. Despite the financial challenges and loss of sponsorship dollars from the pandemic, the Arts Council continues to support local artists in all disciplines through grants and bursaries. They have also launched a monthly virtual Artist Coffee Meetup for those who’d like to stay connected. COVID-19 has been tough, but through it all, the Arts Council has remained true to its values, creating

Barriere mayor seeking Conservative nomination JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Barriere Mayor Ward Stamer is seeking the federal Conservative Party nomination for the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding. Stamer is the fourth person to announce a bid to represent the party in the next federal election, joining Tourism Kamloops CEO Beverley DeSantis, Tobiano founder Mike Grenier and Crown prosecutor Frank Caputo. The race is wide open after four-term MP Cathy McLeod announced in February she will not seek re-election when the next federal vote is held. Stamer said his political experience differentiates himself in the growing field of hopefuls. “It’s really important. now more than ever. to have a representative in government who is experienced,” he said. Stamer, 59, is married and father to two adult children.

Stamer has lived in Barriere since he was a kid. He worked in logging for many years and was chairman of the improvement district in charge of solid waste, street lights, water and fire services prior to the community being incorporated in 2007. Stamer was on Barriere’s first council as an incorporated community and became mayor in 2018. He referred to Barriere as a “bedroom community” to Kamloops. He has been a Lions Club member for more than three decades. and considers the club motto to be his own. “We serve,” Stamer said. “I think that’s what I’ve done throughout my working career.” Stamer described himself as a progressive conservative. He said he was asked in recent years to run for the B.C. Liberal Party in Kamloops-North Thompson. I If he were to become area MP, he said he would step down as mayor of Barriere. Issues of importance to him

Stamer called for strong economic growth and innovation in the region in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a strategy to get people in the tourism sector back to work. Stamer also cited relationshipbuilding with area First Nations

as important to him. He said he has strong ties with the Simpcw First Nation. In addition, he cited as beneficial his relationships in general with people in various levels of government and communities in the region, built as a longtime Barriere politician. Along with the Simpcw First Nation, he cited ties to 100 Mile House, Sun Peaks and Clearwater. “I believe that’s a huge benefit going forward as the member of Parliament,” he said. Stamer said Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole is a person who can pull together all sides, including Canadians living in Quebec, Ontario and Western Canada.

To read about others vying for the nomination, go to kamloopsthisweek. com He questions a lack of fiscal transparency on behalf of the governing Liberal Party and said taxpayers will be “absolutely shocked” when they learn how much has been spent in the past year. Canadians are currently awaiting a budget update. In addition, Stamer said questions remain about the We charity scandal. “I believe that we need a different direction,” he said. The next federal election is scheduled to be held on Oct. 16, 2023, but there has been speculation Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will call a vote later this year in a bid to turn his minority government into a majority.

LORI RUSSELL • The thing I miss the most is being able to visit family and friends freely without masks and without the restrictions of whatever public health orders are in place. I just want to be able to phone up a friend and say, “Let’s go do lunch!” or visit my son or daughter without it being only essential things like helping them move or babysitting. I miss seeing peoples’ smiles. • I’ve learned a few things. I’ve learned that some people I thought were pretty smart and well-informed are not, as they went down the rabbit hole of misinformation. I’ve learned that some people are very selfish and self-centred, not willing to work for the community as a whole, but willing to take all they can get. I’ve also learned that a majority of the community are willing to do what they can to keep this virus at bay and help others less fortunate or able in the process. There’s been an overwhelming display of compassion in Kamloops. I’ve also learned there is a lot of inventiveness and ingenuity in this province and country when businesses had to pivot on a dime so they could keep customers and their staff safe. Overall, it’s confirmed to me that Canada is a great place to live — and B.C. in particular. AMANDA COSBURN • I miss my friends. I miss hugging. I miss backyard barbecues and dinner parties. I miss play dates and board game nights.

ADRIANNA MARIE • I miss the ability to be physically close with family during the death of a family member. We had to say goodbye using FaceTime and socially distanced outdoor visits. It was completely awful. • I have learned the value of slowing down and checking in with people you care about. Adrianna Marie enjoys a hike with Odee, her mother-in-law’s dog.

I miss entertaining and socializing. I miss celebrating birthdays and holidays. • I have learned who my true friends are and the importance of mental health and self-care. I also got chickens, started gardening and began making resin jewelry, soaps and candles. I am also taking courses online while raising my two young daughters and managing my family as a one-income household, with my day-care business closed and my hubby working longer days and hours. SHIRLEY LEBOVICH • I miss my relaxed wanderings downtown and coffee with friends. • What I learned from this past hell year is that people can be very ignorant.

KAYLA OXENBURY • I miss my family tremendously. • I have learned just how valuable family and friends are. My little one was born in 2019 and has not had any of the crucial socialization needed for his age due to all of the restrictions regarding seeing people and all the programs being shut down in communities.

STACEY JYRKKANEN • The one thing I miss most is interacting with people. I miss being able to go see family and friends, to be close and hug (I am a hugger and hug almost everyone). I miss seeing people at work. • I’ve learned what is actually really important: family, friends and living for today.

ARLENE GRAFTON • The thing I miss most is the freedom of either planning or on impulse being able to visit or socialize interprovincially or at home. Examples include a visit with family in Alberta or having friends over for a game of cards. Further to this, I’m grateful for technology and the ability to FaceTime or have Zoom meetings and gatherings. The thing I have learned is that in order to survive, we need to and can adapt to a dire situation. SHARON ECKERSLEY • I miss my children, who live in the North, and going out with my friends. I miss shopping and going out to have a nice meal in a restaurant. It’s the little things that we take for granted that I miss the most. GINETTE TRUDEAU-BAUER • First and foremost, I miss watching my son play hockey. Secondly, I missed going to visit my grandma in Tampa last summer (and probably again this year) and going to Mexico over the winter. • The one thing I have learned during this nightmare pandemic is that many people are very selfish.

Kamloops This Week asked the Kamloops Arts Council to survey its members to determine if any would like to offer up an artistic rendition that represents the past year and, possibly, better times ahead. Carmen Teixeira-Derksen created Hope, a 24-inch-by-36-inch acrylic on canvas artwork. Says Teixeira-Derksen: “What inspired me to paint this happy, not too happy blast from the past, an elderly woman remembering better times and, hopefully, happier times? Hope — with a smirk of uncertainty, graffiti-inspired artists, peace and loss. Hope keeps us going and allows us to believe in the impossible. Hopelessness threatens to sink us. I choose Hope. This is how I see it.”

What you miss — and what you have learned From A12

Lana Sorokina said she misses hikes with friends, road trips and travelling to Russia to visit family. In the past year, she said she has learned that positive minds attract positive thoughts.

Thank you Kamloops

LANA SOROKINA • One thing I miss the most since the pandemic was declared is being able to travel. I feel like that was taken from me the most. I miss hikes with friends, road trips and travelling back to Russia to visit my family. My husband and I have no relatives in Canada — there is only each other. I miss the feel of my endorphins rising as I am packing my suitcase, when I am eating some unhealthy food at the airport and when I ask for that tomato juice while watching some new, random movie on the plane. I miss people-watching when I go to another country or city. I miss looking at their different outfits, body language and facial expressions. I miss the feeling when it’s time to go back home and you are trying to summarize all the events and gratitude for what happened to you on the trip. • One thing I’ve learned during the pandemic is that positive minds attract positive events and negative minds will bring anxiety, fear and depression. My grandma, who is 84, obese and has diabetes, contracted COVID-19 with no complications.

“I have survived World War II. I won’t give up to this virus”, she said. And she did. She was sick with a fever and cough for a couple of weeks, but now all is good. My cousin, his wife, their 10-year-old daughter and my aunt all got COVID-19. Some had no symptoms, some were sick for a couple of weeks, but there were no complications. I am very grateful that COVID-19 helped them to understand how important it is to eat healthy and be active. I have really enjoyed my solo morning hikes during the lockdown, I have read a few books and I have completed professional courses. I was able to work out daily and practise yoga. We did renovations we haven’t been able to get to for years. We received government support when we had to close our Kamloops Fit Centre and we are very grateful for that. We were able to evolve and improve our business, focusing on personal one-on-one training and it worked out really well. I took all the extra time I had — to grow, to learn and to reflect on a positive state on mind in 2020.

What you miss — and what you have learned From A13

SARAH KILLI • I miss hugs and family. • I have learned that many in our society are severely lacking in the intelligence department. PAT AND BRIAN FADENRECHT • I miss a lot of things, but also appreciate that we still have so much. • I have learned how to enjoy the simple things, walking my dogs and talking to strangers along the way. Social distancing still allows contact with others from a distance. I have also learned not to be bitter and angry about things I can’t change.

“I learned that

I don’t need half of the stuff in my house. I am learning to simplify my life. I also learned that social media will be the downfall of our society.

LESLEY THOMAS • I miss hugs! • I learned I can do with less. Material things are unimportant.

Above is a painting called Let’s Kick Covid’s Butt, created by Nancy Kuchta, who says: “When the pandemic first broke out, I took this opportunity to express myself in my artwork, in an empowering manner. I wanted people to feel like these little warriors were part of our immune system fighting this evil virus.”

DEBBI BLAIR • I miss common sense. It’s amazing to see how many people have no common sense. This was not limited to just the younger generation, but adults, too. • I learned that that provincial parks in B.C. pale in comparison to the ones in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and all points east. We should be embarrassed by the lack of services and the cost. I also learned COVID-19 is nothing compared to the drug overdose issue. I also learned that mental health is more of an issue than anyone wants — DEBBI BLAIR to admit. The day the hospitals that housed and looked after people with mental issues and addictions closed in the late 1980s and early 1990s did not do those people any favours. It placed them at risk, displaced them and for what? To ease the conscience of a certain sector of society. I learned that I don’t need half of the stuff I have in my house. I am learning to simplify my life. I also learned that social media will be the downfall of our society in more ways than one.

PENNY HEASLIP • The thing I miss the most is having my daughter visit from Halifax. It will be a wondrous day when she can travel safely to visit her parents and friends in Kamloops. • The one thing I have been privileged to learn while living through the pandemic is painting with acrylics under the tutelage of Tricia Sellmer, the artist-in-residence at Casa Decor. The highlight of the year was our recent Kamloops Art Council show, In Time of Solitude. It has been a creative journey to be learning in my mid- 70s!

Marianna Abutalipova created By the river. Says Abutalipova: “In the time of despair, I try to turn to bright colours, abstract brush strokes, just feel the paint and go with the flow. The pandemic gave us one gift that I learned to appreciate — time. It is the silver lining. The show must go on and so does the creativity. This pandemic will make us stronger, better and more creative.”

Virtually making travel possible

Campus classes this fall? KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Universities across B.C., including Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, have been told to prepare for a “full return” to campus in September. The news came in a statement from Minister of Advanced Education Anne Kang, following a letter from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry to university presidents. Kang will work with Henry to develop guidelines for a safe return to campus in the fall.

“I’m encouraged by Dr. Henry’s advice that a return to in-person instruction can be done safely this fall for all students, staff and faculty. In fact, it’s important to do so for people’s well-being,” Kang said. The plan to return to campus coincides with an accelerated immunization plan from the province, made possible by the approval of more vaccine types. Henry said she expects everyone in the province could receive their first dose by early July.

In a statement released to media, TRU president Brett Fairbairn said he was thrilled to see the announcement. “The letter received from Dr. Henry is clear on the importance of returning to campus in support of everyone’s health and well-being,” he wrote. Fairbairn said more details will be provided to staff and students once they are known. He said more details will be posted to the university’s return to campus website, which is at www.tru.ca/covid-19/ return-to-campus.html.

Private film screenings nixed SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

Despite receiving permission to continue private screenings, the Kamloops Film Society has been forced to once again pull the plug on the projector at the Paramount Theatre. On March 3, Interior Health informed the society that operates the downtown theatre that it must stop holding private screenings, which were only available for up to six people from a single household. The theatre has a COVID-19 safety plan in place and was abiding by health guidelines, only offering private screenings after receiving permission from Interior Health in early February. KFS executive director Dusan Magdolen said he is disappointed in the decision, especially after receiving approval from the health authority. “We made our case and said, ‘Hey, we have a 500-seat theatre. If a family can be around a table at a restaurant, why can’t they be in the theatre?’” he said concerning his call to Interior Health earlier in the year. Magdolen said Interior Health seemed receptive to the idea and, after the request

was sent to higher-ups, the theatre was approved to hold the screenings shortly thereafter. “We could have spaced out a lot more people than that, but at least it was something,” he said. Magdolen said the society’s request apparently prompted other groups and theatres to seek the same approval to host similar events, which may have led to the province intervening and countering Interior Health’s approval. “I don’t know if that’s the reason, but it still doesn’t make logical sense to me that people can go to a restaurant or pub and sit around a table, but they can’t go into a 500-seat theatre and have it all to themselves,” he said.

The province currently prohibits all events, which are defined in a public health order issued by Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. By the order, an event is defined as any gathering of people in any place public or private and includes a “movie” or “film” specifically. It does not make exceptions for people of the same household. Wage and rental subsidies offered by government are helping keep the society operating in the interim and Magdolen said the society is “OK at the moment,” but there is concern about how things will shake out once people are allowed to return to theatres. The film society was barely able to hold its annual film festival in 2020, limiting capacity to the provincially mandated 250-person gathering limit very early in the pandemic. This year’s film festival will be held outdoors on McArthur Island, with limited attendance at the Twin Rivers Drive-In which was piloted last summer. The 2021 festival will run from April 21 to May 2 — two days longer than previous festivals. More information will be posted online at kamloopsfilmfest.ca.

How Much Risk Can You Take vs Should You Take? Years ago, before kids, I was a bachelor travelling in New Zealand known as the birthplace of bungee jumping. I signed up for the “Thrillogy” which include 3 bungee jumps at three very different locations. It was incredibly nerve racking especially when I couldn’t help but think at some point human error would eventually occur. Needless to say, I am not sure I would do this again… perhaps age and or having a family limits my risk appetite. I make this analogy to demonstrate that people’s tolerance for risk often changes over their lifetime. Broadly speaking, Investor Risks can be split between two categories: 1. Capacity – this is the level of risk you are capable of taking and is measured by standard deviation more commonly known as volatility. For example, if you are debt free, no kids and have $1,000,000 you can afford to take more risk than a family of four with little saved and many expenses ahead. 2. Tolerance – this is the level of risk you want or are willing to take, also known as Risk Appetite, which is based on your feelings and emotional stresses you can manage with respect to investing. One of my favourite

analogies is to envision portfolio volatility like turbulence on an airplane. Which of these two options would you chose when flying from Vancouver to Hawaii? A - You get to Honolulu in 6 hours and sleep easy on the plane. B - You could get to Honolulu in 4 hours but "white knuckled" with extreme turbulence. Often, there are mismatches between Capacity and Tolerance. Some investors will be too conservative and not keep up with the cost of living (inflation). On the other hand, taking on too much risk can jeopardize a worryfree retirement. Typically, some sort of discovery tool will be used to estimate your comfort. The easiest question to ask yourself is what is the maximum "turbulence” you could tolerate? For example, an investor with $500,000 might say I feel I can handle a maximum decrease of 10% or $50,000 over any 12-month period. From here, a diversified portfolio can be personally built around this preference. The table below is based on a US study but helps illustrate the differences in portfolio composition: 1926-2019

Another key point is that retirees tend to worry more about their finances than younger people. As such, we must be aware of potential changes in lifestyle, needs, attitudes, and adjust accordingly. By continually re-evaluating your objectives and comforts, you stand a better chance at managing unforeseen financial surprises. Probably the most important thing in financial planning and wealth management is aligning your portfolio to your goals. If you could achieve all your goals and dreams with a 4% return, shouldn’t your portfolio be designed to realize this? Many investors focus on returns instead of goals. Consequently they take on more risk than required. For the most part, striving for higher returns to exceed your goals doesn’t actually translate into an improvement in lifestyle. We encourage investors to review now before the next major market event and help reduce the turbulence. Written by Eric

Until next time… Invest Well. Live Well.

Job site explosion injures worker KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

An electrical explosion in downtown Kamloops on Monday sent a worker to hospital with burns and halted construction at The Lightwell apartment building. Police, fire and ambulance workers responded to the worksite in the 400-block of St. Paul Street at 11:18 a.m. where a worker had been injured while on the scaffolding outside the building’s fourth floor. Acting hall Capt. Dean Austinson of Kamloops Fire Rescue said he was informed by the site supervisor that workers heard a loud bang from the top of a BC Hydro pole and saw an employee on his back. Four firefighters and two paramedics went up to tend to the worker, who was sent

Draft of new SD73 dress code policy to be ready soon SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

A draft of a new district-wide dress code policy will be ready for school stakeholder groups within the next two weeks. At Monday’s board of education meeting, Kamloops-Thompson school district superintendent Terry Sullivan said the policy has been under review for three months, prior to an incident at NorKam secondary that prompted widespread attention and calls for change. In late February, NorKam secondary student Karis Wilson was taken out of class and subsequently sent home for wearing an outfit that included a lacetrimmed dress worn over top a longsleeve turtleneck shirt. Wilson said the incident nearly left her in tears. The district’s dress code specifies a number of items of clothing that may not be worn by students, including clothes that promote the use of drugs SPONSORED CONTENT

or alcohol, that depict vulgar or sexual language or images, that discriminate against protected groups, that promote violence or violent groups or that is “worn in a way that detracts from the teaching/learning process.” Many have called for changes to policy over how women and girls can be singled out, particularly when teachers and administrators are given discretion in how it is applied. Sullivan said a replacement administrative procedure is expected to be completed within two weeks, with opportunities for review to follow. “Once we have completed a draft and it’s gone through the superintendent’s council and senior staff, it will be sent to all stakeholder groups,” he said. From there, another draft will be drawn up based on feedback. “It’s taking some time; however, as I’ve said previously, it’s important we do this well and right, rather than do it quickly,” Sullivan said.

HOLMES IS WHERE THE

In 1982, the Weather Girls had a Grammy-nominated number-one dance hit called It’s Raining Men. A line in the song included “For the first time in history, it’s raining men.” I can certainly identify with that, as tracking down single men is proving to be challenging. Unlike women who are great at putting themselves out there, you rarely see men going to single events or speed dating nights. Obviously, no one is going to events now due to the pandemic, but men are generally not comfortable in those scenarios. I regularly take a cruise through Match.com, Plenty of Fish, Our Time and a few other dating apps, and it appears that single men seem comfortable hiding behind their computer screen with sunglasses, ball caps and big fish covering their bodies. Guys, seriously, take off the hats and glasses and don’t stand in your bathroom taking a selfie. And, for the love of God, don’t give yourself the name Lonely Single Guy. Trust me, women don’t want to be with a lonely man. Women want to be with a happy, busy, independent guy. This past Valentine’s Day

TARA HOLMES

Matchmaker

MASTER

weekend, I did an interview with the CBC about finding love during a pandemic. I didn’t realize it was a national interview and, sure enough, on the Monday morning after that weekend, I received emails from women across Canada. I did my best to send them to the big city matchmakers, but it was interesting to hear from women in Montreal, Toronto, Nanaimo, Kelowna, Vancouver, etc. It appears men are a bit more apprehensive to reach out. My theory goes back to the age-old stereotype before the days of GPS, when men would rather drive around the

block five times than ask for directions, whereas women will ask before even going around once. If men think going to a matchmaker is a sign of weakness, that they cannot meet someone on their own, I have news for them. Going online to dating sites means you are asking their algorithms to help you In essence, it means you still can’t do it on your own. Regardless if you ask the algorithm to help you, or you ask me to help you, it means when push comes to shove, you haven’t been able to meet a match without help. The difference between me and those dating apps is I am private and discreet and I meet you first for coffee before meeting every person before setting them up with you. Match.com could care less about you. In fact, truth be told, its goal is to keep you single. Some guys are surprised when I mention I saw them on an online dating site. Not only have I seen them, but maybe their wives have also seen them. Yes, I recently came across a man who admitted to me he was married. Those are the kind of guys to whom I will not introduce

others. Have you ever noticed really fit guys at a gym working with a personal trainer and you wonder why he is getting help when he is already really buff? It’s because he is upping his game. He wants to stay the course and in shape and knows a personal trainer will hold him accountable. It does not mean the person is weak. I have set up many great men in the last several years, including doctors, lawyers, two professional athletes, politicians and others. When I get good guys, I lose them right away as I match them up. I am specifically looking for men in their 50s, 60s and 70s who are healthy, active, outdoorsy and not lonely. I am guessing there must be some men who would normally be playing old-time’s hockey, dancing at Colombo Lodge, playing soccer or curling. If you know any men like that who could possibly keep up to some amazing ladies, let me know via email at holmes@wheretheheartis.ca and perhaps we can change that weather forecast. Even if it’s not raining men, a light drizzle would suffice.

Young Peter Puck participants celebrated Kamloops Blazer Logan Stankoven’s 18th birthday recently with cupcakes after an on-ice session at Valleyview Arena. The young skaters actually made Logan do 18 push-ups — one for each time he has circled the sun. While the Western Hockey League was off the ice due to the pandemic, Stankoven has helped teach the Peter Puck kids since last September. The forward and his Blazer teammates will be back in action as of March 26 as the WHL’s B.C. Division begins a 24-game schedule.

There doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for Kamloops’ upward trending housing prices, according to the latest numbers from the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association. In February, the average sales price of a home in Kamloops was $540,559. In the greater district area, the average price was $515,293 — a 20 per cent increase over the average home sale price in February 2020. The average selling price of a single-family detached home in the greater district area in February was $603,768. The district includes Kamloops and the sur-

rounding area of Merritt, Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Clinton, Lillooet, Barriere, Clearwater, McLure, Chase, the north and south Shuswap, Monte Lake, Westwold and Pritchard. In total, February saw 283 properties change hands — the most in any February since at least 2012. Of those sales, 213 took place in Kamloops. Listings, meanwhile, are about average, with 349 new homes on the market last month. “Although the numbers have increased, it doesn’t feel like there’s much of a change in the market scenario. We are selling listings at the same rate as the number of listings hitting the market,” KADREA

WENDY RUNGE

president Wendy Runge said. A majority of sellers are currently seeing multiple offers on their properties, with many selling for more than the asking price, Runge said. Runge said the high prices are being driven by low supply and low mortgage rates.

Another strong start to building year JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Issuance of residential permits kept the city’s building department busy last month. In February, the city issued 38 residential building permits valued at $8.4 million, making up the bulk of the building permit values for the month, which came in at $10.5 million. Amongst the residential tally were 12 multi-family duplex permits worth $2.9 million. City of Kamloops building manager Jason Dixon said the permits were issued for a half-dozen duplex units in each of Juniper Ridge and Batchelor Heights. By comparison, the city issued 53 residential permits valued at $5.8 million in the same month last year. One area down in the past month is alterations. In February of 2020, the city issued 31 permits for residential alterations, compared to just six issued last month. Overall, the city issued 84 permits last month, worth $10.5 million. It compares to 128 permits worth $10.3 million issued in the same month last year.

To date in 2021, the city has issued 176 building permits worth $19.1 million. Through the first two months of 2020, the city had issued 215 permits worth $29.8 million. The difference, Dixon said, is a permit issued in January of 2020 for an apartment building. He said if that is removed from the equation, the years are comparable to start. Dixon described the city’s permitting department as “very busy” so far this year, with 123 permit applications submitted through the first six weeks of the year. He said application volume was about 20 per cent ahead of the same time last year. “There’s a lot of permits going through the door,” he said. Kamloops is coming off successive record-breaking building-permit years, with 2020 setting a new high mark. Last year, 1,479 building permits worth $395.1 million were issued, surpassing the city’s previous record of 1,443 permits valued at $288.3 million set in 2019. The city has issued record-breaking permit values for four straight years. In 2018, it issued $285 million and, in 2017, it issued $224 million.

NEW MAGAZINES FOR EVERYONE!

Yard waste drop-off locations ready JESSICA WALLACE STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

In advance of spring cleanup, the City of Kamloops is reminding residents of yard waste drop-off locations. The city composts its yard waste at the Cinnamon Ridge Compost Facility in Brocklehurst (on Tranquille Road, past Kamloops Airport and Kamloops Golf and Country Club), with compost available for purchase to the public. The city said composting yard waste, including grass clippings, leaves and tree prunings, allows it to preserve space in the landfill and create a

nutrient-rich compost material that benefits gardens, lawns, shrubs and flowers. It is also more environmentally friendly. Yard waste accepted by the city also includes fallen fruit, pumpkins, garden waste and Christmas trees, with the tinsel and decorations removed in advance. Last week, the Bunker Road (in the McGill industrial park) and Barnhartvale Landfill drop-off locations reopened. The Bunker Road location is open seven days per week, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Barnhartvale Landifill is open Fridays to Mondays (closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Cinnamon Ridge Compost Facility remains open, but will close earlier. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until March 31, bumped to until 6 p.m. from April 1 through Oct. 31. Compost is available for purchase at $10 per loaded tractor bucket (about 500 kilograms) or $4 per small container (garbage can, Rubbermaid container, etc.) loaded by the customer. Cash payments will no longer be accepted.

Don’t get hooked on latest phishing fraud COVID-19 vaccinations roll out, the environment is primed for fraudsters to prey on unsuspecting victims,” Cpl. Dana Napier said. “It’s very important for people to be vigilant in protecting their personal information.” In mid-February, a Kamloops resident received an email requesting their SIN number and financial information for vaccination registration. Soon after, the person received a phone call from “CMC Finance,” asking for further personal details.

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

More scams arriving in Kamloops have Mounties urging residents to be vigilant. Over the last couple of weeks, the Kamloops RCMP has been contacted about scams related to the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), the Canadian Revenue Agency, COVID-19 vaccinations and Bitcoin. In some cases, residents provided personal information and money transfers. “As tax season ramps up and more

Napier said that if someone calls or emails you, claiming to be a public health employee, a police officer or a Canada Revenue Agency officer looking to confirm a credit card number or any other personal information, do not provide it to them. “Contact the agency at a number you know is legit, not one provided by the potential scammer,” Napier said. “Hang up on phone calls, delete emails you do not recognize and do not click on any links within the email.” Since the federal government launched

2021 CROSSTREK Voted Best Small Utility Vehicle in Canada for 2021

its CERB, it has become the subject of a number of scams. The phishing scams are sent by email or text and the messaging suggests you can submit an application. The scammer then states your information needs to be confirmed or that your payment is ready. If you click the included link, you will be directed to a fraudulent website and asked to submit your personal information. Providing your personal or financial information puts you at-risk for identity fraud. TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM EMAIL PHISHING SCAMS: • Do not open any emails or attachments from unknown or suspicious addresses. • Do not use phone numbers or email links that were provided in the email. Research company contact information. • Do not reply to the email. • Do not give out your personal or financial information. • Confirm invoices with the issuing company directly.

Heritage Old Courthouse getting a facelift The old Kamloops Courthouse, now the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, at Seymour Street and First Avenue, was built between 1909 and 1911 in the Edwardian Baroque style of the many government buildings of the time. DAVE EAGLES/KTW FILE

JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops is planning a roof replacement and interior and exterior rehabilitation of the historic Old Courthouse, downtown at Seymour Street and First Avenue. The city recently received about a half-million dollars from the provincial government as part of economic stimulus funding during the pandemic, which will be used to conduct the work. Kamloops was among 68 communities to receive heritage infrastructure funding. City of Kamloops culture manager Barb Berger said work will start this spring. Berger said exterior work will include repairing granite and stone as the Seymour Street side of the building is in poor condition. She said mortar is crumbling beneath the blocks. In addition, the slate roof will

be replaced. Inside the building, some of the dark fir wood will be refinished, particularly in high-traffic areas and down the staircase.

“I think that will give it a huge lift,” Berger said. She said the work will be “restoration” so as to preserve the historical significance of the

building. The city purchased the red brick building in 2007. It is a designated heritage building and, as such, the city is

required to abide by certain heritage building standards. The city has until 2023 under the grant program to complete the work. The Kamloops Arts Council occupies the building and the group is not expected to be displaced as a result of the work. The grant covers the entire scope of the planned work. However, Berger, noted the city is also planning to restore stain glass windows in the building in the future, with some cracked due to age and others damaged due to vandalism It is unclear when that work will be complete, but Berger said the city will be looking to install Plexiglass protectors to prevent future damage.

Kids! Name the police puppy contest is for you KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Kids ages four to 14 are invited to enter a contest to name 13 German Shepherd puppies — any of which could end up helping Kamloops Mounties keep the city safe. The RCMP’s 2021 Name the Puppy Contest is open until March 18. “It takes a really special dog to get through our program,” said Cpl. Steve Prior, a Kamloops RCMP dog handler who has been paired with police dog Fargo for more than five years now and knows the difference police dogs make in the community and on the force.

From helping to find missing people, to tracking evidence and criminals — sometimes in extremely dangerous environments — cop canines work hard to help keep people safe. “They do a lot for us without asking for much of anything,” Prior said. Prior’s first working dog was named Palmer, which starts with the same letter as this year’s contest names — “P.” Children are encouraged to be original and imaginative in finding names, but also reminded to pick names suitable for working police dogs. Along with Fargo and Palmer, Prior has also worked with police dogs Rico and Faro.

Winning names will be chosen by the Police Dog Service Training Centre staff in Innisfail, Alta. A draw will determine the winning entry in the event of multiple submissions of the same puppy name. In 2019, a student from Rayleigh in Kamloops was one of 13 winners after his suggested name of Marlow was chosen. The 13 children whose puppy names are selected will each receive a laminated 8-by-10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP water bottle.

Explaining Step 1 of the program Step One of the program contends “we are powerless over (substance/behaviour) — our lives have become unmanageable.” No one likes to be powerless. After all, our entire society is based upon power, riches and fame. Many chase money, which really is merely a piece of paper. The tulip wars involved rich men buying tulips at exorbitant prices until cloning of the flower was discovered. What could be more valuable than beauty? But once everyone can have beauty, it becomes worthless to those with multiple riches. If you doubt your powerlessness, think of COVID-19. We are all powerless over some aspect of life, including death, but many pretend

ASK AN ADDICT Ask an Addict is a column penned by Helena Paivenen, a Kamloops scholar with expertise in addiction issues and someone who is also an addict. The column is meant to inform and help, which is particularly important as we remain mired in an opioid crisis that continues to claim thousands of lives each year. If you have a question you would like answered, email it to editor@ kamloopsthisweek.com. Anonymity is guaranteed. they are omnipotent. Humility is required for the admission of powerlessness, an attribute some do not possess in a world that tends to value other assets. Step one claims our lives have become unmanageable — the pronoun “our” is used as we cannot fight addiction alone.

It is a “we” program, not a “me” program, although if it is up to be, it is up to me. Recovery in the 12 steps contains many paradoxes, such as when we admit powerlessness and surrender, we find a new power greater than ourself. Insanity is what we become when drinking, drugging or behaving

the same way again and again while expecting different results. How many with addiction vow “This time it will be different,” but it is like repeatedly hitting your finger with a hammer and expecting it will not hurt on the next impact. After all, society says practise makes perfect when sometimes that does not happen. So we practise over and over again, thinking this time we will get it right. We tell ourselves lies and continue the destructive behaviour until one day we either die, go to jail, become institutionalized or finally quit. Everyone can use the 12 steps as they are merely a recipe for good living. Imagine the harmony, beauty and peace the world could have if all children were taught

how to implement the 12 steps. After all, what is bad about examining our behaviour on a daily basis and promptly admitting our wrongs and making amends, not by continually apologizing, but by changing destructive, harmful behaviour one day at a time? An explanation of step two is scheduled for next week. I hope to stay on track this time as, in addiction, I tend to go off on tangents. Even if you do not have addiction, you will benefit from working these steps. If you have children, I strongly encourage you to consider implementing them in child raising. The 12 steps will not fail you if they are worked on every day, one day at a time.

Alice is a love letter to horror genre directors KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Local aspiring filmmakers navigated the COVID-19 pandemic to produce a short film that has inspired them to pursue creation of their own production company in Kamloops. Kamloops resident Chrissy Marie wrote, directed and starred in the short horror film Alice, inspired by the Lewis Carroll story, Alice in Wonderland. The story involves main character Alice experimenting with a party drug that goes by the name Wonderland, with deadly effects during “a hell of a trip,” Marie said. The 25-year-old and a group of mostly volunteers put the film together in the latter half of 2020, wrapping in January of this year. The shoot was Marie’s directorial debut, with the script based on a class assignment Marie had when she attended the Art Institute of Vancouver years ago. “It was something I always wanted to revisit and do better,” she said. Marie raised about $3,000 between herself, an executive producer and an Indiegogo campaign to produce the film, with the budget focused predominantly on wardrobe. “It was a very makeup- and costumeheavy film,” Marie said. Marie currently works at the local cosmetology and beauty school, Interior Academy, and recruited a number of students and alumni from the program to work on her film. She also brought in her brother, Ethan Greenwood, 22, to help out and the brothersister duo are now setting up their own production company, GreenHos Productions, to distribute future projects they put together. “It started out as a passion project, and it started really small, and it’s been interesting to see how it’s grown,” Greenwood said. Alice is the debut project for GreenHos and the film is now in editing, which is being done by former KTW reporter Todd Sullivan. The 17-minute film is expected to be

released this spring and the filmmakers hope to soon submit it to film festivals, including next year’s Kamloops Independent Short Shorts Film Fest. Marie said they are looking into posting the film online and hope to have a premiere at the Paramount Theatre when COIVID-19 rules permit a screening. Project manager and assistant director Corey Rajala said the shoot was one of the best he’s worked on — having made a number of short films in Kamloops himself. The 30-person crew took on all the roles one would see on a typical movie set, he said, noting the project also involved standard industry hours — 12- to 14-hour days — with plenty of cast rehearsals and production meetings, in addition to the week’s worth of shooting time. “It was run like you would run a real Hollywood production, just on weekends,” Rajala said with a laugh. The shoot was stretched between October and January, with all the necessary COVID-19 protocols in place, including mask wearing and symptom checks. “We were wanting to be responsible and do our part,” Marie said, noting film locations included Tranquille Creek, McArthur Island and Noble Pig Brewhouse. Much of the cast and crew were recruited through social media, including Rajala, who responded to a Facebook post from Marie, who was in search of a “spooky basement.” “And I said, ‘Oh I got one,’ and then I fell into the role of project manager,” Rajala said. Marie, who is originally from Barierre, said she has a passion for theatre and horror movies, drawing inspiration from directors Ryan Murphy of American Horror Story and Guillermo del Toro, who directed the 2015 film Crimson Peak. “I consider Alice my love letter to them,” Marie said. “Those directors showed me how much more horror can be — it’s not all blood and guts.”

Summit focused on youth homelessness MICHAL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

A first-of-its-kind grassroots networking event has a youth social agency in Kamloops confident it has the ear of government, with a summary report forthcoming. Staff from A Way Home Kamloops Society, who have experienced homelessness in their youth, pitched solutions for ending youth homelessness to provincial government representatives and service providers recently at a virtual conference

they organized. Aging out of foster care, substance use, mental health, cultural supports, LGBTQ2S+ experiences, education and employment were up for discussion via Zoom meetings. “If even this only plants the seed for change, that’s incredible because there’s still more to come,” said Kira Cheeseborough said, peer navigator for A Way Home Kamloops. A two-day summit with provincial representatives — as originally planned prior to the pandemic — is still expected to take place when COVID-19

restrictions ease. At the virtual event, A Way Home Kamloops youth advisors stressed the need to ensure no youth ages out of foster care before safe, appropriate housing and after-care supports are available as a key solution to ending youth homelessness. Another recommendation was to create a provincial plan. “If we can prevent youth from experiencing homelessness, it doesn’t become a pathway to adult homelessness,” Cheeseborough said. The three-hour virtual event drew 57 attendees, with repre-

sentatives from BC Housing, the Attorney General’s office, the Ministry of Children and Family Development, including Minister Mitzi Dean, and the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, including Minister Sheila Malcolmson. Cheeseborough said a report of key findings and feedback from attendees will be made public in mid-March. Youth Advisor Mel Hedch told KTW she is happy they were able to have the ear of key decisionmakers in the field as it means they have a greater chance of improving the situations of

homeless youth in B.C. “It was so exciting to have them and I look forward to, in the future, the different summit and conference we’ll have, where we’ll be expanding so much than we already have,” Hedch said. Cheeseborough said the preliminary summit was an opportunity for the youth advisors to be celebrated in their resiliency and strength, not only through COVID, but in the tragic passing of Katherine McParland. McParland, 33, was A Way Home Kamloops’ first executive director. She died suddenly in Kamloops on Dec. 5, 2020.

The idea for this downtown mural came from the owner of the building at 350 Seymour St., who had a poster of the legend and showed it to the artist. The entire piece was created using spray paint — the first mural of this genre in the mural tour. It shows the amazing detail that is possible with a skilled spray paint artist.

Breeze Penrod-Virdi created this piece she calls My Waterfall. Breeze attends Grade 1 at Aberdeen elementary and grandparents Lanny and Jane Penrod say they are extremely proud of their granddaughter‘s talent with paint at such a young age.

Lent is a beautiful discipline for spiritual exercise

A

DID YOU KNOW? Lent is a religious observance within the Christian liturgical calendar that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends six weeks later. During Lent, millions of Christians across the globe make sacrifices, including abstaining from eating meat on certain days during Lent. It is tradition for Christians to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 17 this year), which marks the official beginning of Lent, while many also abstain from eating meat on Fridays throughout Lent. According to the Archdiocese of Saint Paul & Minneapolis, the practice of avoiding meat on Fridays during Lent stems from Christians’ belief that Jesus Christ sacrificed his flesh to atone for the sins of mankind. In recognition of that sacrifice, millions of Christians do not eat flesh meat, which includes the meat of mammals and poultry, on Fridays throughout Lent. Fish is not considered flesh meat, so many Christians consume fish on Fridays during Lent.

s with every year, the season of Lent has made its quiet entry. It started with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17 and ends on April 3. As a supposed time of purification, this year’s Lent, in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic, is especially heart-warming, as Christians are asked to renounce evil, reconcile with one’s fellow men and build harmony with the entire creation. Lent is marked by prayer, fasting and good works that enable believers in Christ to bring about an exodus, a crossover from slavery to sin to a life of freedom and authenticity of being a child of God. Lent is a time of year to remember that God has seen fit to make us not airy spirits, but embodied human beings living in a beautiful material world. The soul fills the body the way fire fills a lump of coal and, what the body learns, the soul also absorbs. Spiritual disciplines, such as fasting, are analogous to weightlifting equipment. Those who use them in a disciplined way will be stronger, not just when they are lifting weights, but for every situation they encounter. While some think of Lent as a time to personally choose something to “give up,” the practice of the Eastern Christians from the earliest centuries is to observe a common fast. This is not a complete fast, but rather abstaining from meat and dairy — basically a vegan diet. Some church fathers likened it to Daniel’s diet in the Old Testament, in king’s court when he abstained from meat and rich foods and grew stronger than those who feasted. There’s something to be said for following an ancient, universal Lenten custom like this instead of choosing one’s own adventure. Most of us are not capable of being our own spiritual directors. We don’t have the perspective needed to choose

FAITH

the things that will really change us. But during Lent, a fast like this observed for 2,000 years in many lands is time-tested. In meaningful Lent observances, we are not only one with the church through time, but also with those in our local church. It is not too much to say that, second only to personal faith in God, our human relationships are the most important thing in our lives. We are generally happy when we are getting along reasonably well with other people and we are generally unhappy when we are not. The chief reason many of us fail in this second-most important relationship in the world is that we have false idea of how to create good human relationships. If we have a genuine criticism or objection, we should go to the person immediately involved and, with as much grace and good will as we can muster, take it up with him. But what we usually do is to go to someone else, spill our gripes and criticisms in order to enlist sympathy, increase the mischief by half-truths, or even lies, and make a bad matter worse. If a matter is not important enough to take up with the person involved, it is not important enough to take up with anybody. Much of such gossip is only a means to greater self-importance. If we want a really good spiritual exercise this Lent

season, let us start praying about dishonesty and double talk in human relationships. Let us go and repair them by “speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15). We cannot, of course, do this ourselves. We work naturally by affinity and by emotion. Only God can help us to work with concern and grace. That is why human relationships must not resemble two dots at the end of a line, but two angles at the base of a triangle, with God at the apex. God must be in on every relationship if it is to be right. Two things happen when God comes in on human relationships: • We refer everything to the one who is perfectly just and sees the situation exactly as it is. • Prayer opens up for us to see the situation more as it truly is, helping us to melt out of it unyielding and unjust attitudes and giving us generous and redemptive and fresh attitudes toward people. God lifts us up into a creative and dynamic expectation, very different from our natural sullen self-justification. Lenten disciplines train us like athletes, strengthening our earthly bodies and souls, healing the body of believers in our local parish and forging union with the body of Christ throughout time. As Apostle Paul so inexorably deduced in one of his letters: “Forgetting what lies behind (the sins of the past) … we press on to combat those sins that lie ahead, made stronger by our Lenten disciplines, for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).

Pendrel balancing motherhood,Olympic dreams MARTY HASTINGS STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

One-month-old Dara Wilson was kind enough to wait until the end of the interview to finish her snooze and start crying. She gave her mom, Catharine Pendrel, time to answer several questions, including one of particular interest to those across the Canadian cross-country mountain biking landscape — is the chase still on for a fourth appearance at the Olympic Summer Games? Answer: It’s go time. “I feel like it’s been best-case scenario,” said 40-year-old Pendrel, who was spotted by KTW last week powering up Summit Drive on her bike. “I’m definitely behind where I would be had I not been pregnant and had a baby, but I’m really happy with the form I was able to maintain through pregnancy and definitely my recovery afterward.

Keith Wilson and Catharine Pendrel welcomed daughter Dara to the world on Jan. 26.

I feel quite well-positioned.” Longtime Kamloops residents Pendrel and husband Keith Wilson welcomed Dara to the world on Jan. 26. “Everything is actually really good,” Pendrel said. “We’ve found a nice balance. She is currently sleeping, so that’s good. My recovery and return to training is doing

well and she is doing well.” (She was currently sleeping). The postponed 2020 Olympic Summer Games are scheduled to run this year in Tokyo, from July 23 to Aug. 8. That leaves about six months for Pendrel to recover and reach world-class form. Pendrel and Haley Smith occupy the two spots expected to be available for female Canadian cross-country riders at the Games. They are the only two women who have satisfied Cycling Canada criteria for cracking the Olympic squad, but two opportunities remain for Canadian riders to unseat the current placeholders. The first two events of the World Cup season in May, in Germany and the Czech Republic, will double as the final Olympic qualifiers if the races can take place amid the pandemic. Pendrel’s fifth-place finish at a World Cup event in 2019 is her ticket to Tokyo. If another

Canadian rider can finish fourth or better at either of the upcoming World Cup events, then Pendrel is likely to lose her spot. On the flip side, the Kamloops rider could improve her Olympic qualification chances by finishing fourth or better at either World Cup event in May, but that is an unlikely scenario. “I’m not anticipating I’m going to be a top-five rider in May,” said Pendrel, an Olympic bronze medallist, two-time world champion and threetime World Cup series champion. “That might be unrealistic. I’m still going to be behind at those ones, but I definitely feel confident that by June and July, later in the season, I’ll have really good form.” In the event the World Cup races in May are cancelled, criteria satisfiers Pendrel and Smith seem likely to crack the Olympic team, but Cycling Canada has not yet confirmed

that to be the case. Pendrel is finding inspiration in motherhood and its relation to her quest for Tokyo. “For a lot of women, just to see an athlete who has gone through training while they’re pregnant and then getting back into being a high-level athlete afterward is a nice example of, you know, life definitely changes when you have a baby, but you can still retain a lot of those elements that are important to you, in terms of your active lifestyle.” Pressure remains, but it feels a little bit different this time around. “I’ve been at this high-performance, high-result expectation for so long, and those things are still there, but there is also that atmosphere of, ‘Just do your best,’ and I’ll be happy with my progress,” Pendrel said. “And that’s often when athletes do perform their best.” Dara awoke.

CLOUSTON TALKS NAVIGATING UNUSUAL WHL SEASON MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Head coaches in the WHL have unique challenges to face in this truncated 2021 season, which will get underway for B.C. Division clubs on March 26. Kamloops Blazers’ bench boss Shaun Clouston is preparing to navigate a pre-season that will be without a legitimate training camp and exhibition games, absent a host of teaching moments and evaluation time that would accompany the lead up to a traditional campaign. Clouston will also be tasked with developing a philosophy for a season that is not likely to culminate with playoffs, a schedule that will include 24 games if uninterrupted by positive COVID-19 tests. The Blazers will not be on the ice for team activities until after March 17, when players will undergo a second test for the virus.

Clouston is expecting to have six or seven days of practice before the season begins and will be relying heavily on veteran players to take on more prominent teaching roles. “The pace, the structure, the energy — that’s going to be key,” Clouston said. “Really cue those guys up and say, ‘Remember where we want to get to, remember how we want to play,’ so that in practice today, we’re pitching in and helping out.” The roster includes six 16-year-old players — forwards Tye Spencer, Connor Levis, Fraser Minten and Vaughn Watterodt, defenceman Mats Lindgren and goaltender Dylan Ernst — and 15-year-old D-man Kaden Hammell. Forwards Logan Stankoven,

Matthew Seminoff and Caedan Bankier and defenceman Logan Bairos make up the 17-year-old contingent. The 18-year-olds are forwards Josh Pillar, Peyton McKenzie, Daylan Kuefler and Reese Belton, defenceman Ethan Brandwood and goaltender Dylan Garand. “There were times where it was tough because you live your whole life playing hockey and that was taken away from you for just about a year,” Kuefler said. “It was really important for our team to stay close. We had lots of Zoom calls, stayed in contact and that was huge for staying motivated and close as a team.” Defencemen Inaki Baragano and Quinn Schmiemann and forward Connor Zary are the 19-year-old trio. Rearguards Sean Strange and Montana Onyebuchi and forward Orrin Centazzo are returning for their overage campaigns. Everyone has something to play for from an individual

standpoint, whether it’s a pro contract, NHL Draft position, favour among brass for the future or any of the carrots that typically dangle throughout a major-junior season. What has changed is the time frame in which players have to showcase themselves. Clouston does not plan to let that significantly alter the way he approaches deployment. “Your top guys, quite often your older guys, are accepting and taking on more responsibility, with your younger guys slotting in where they eventually deserve to be,” Clouston said. The division champions crowned after a 24-game season are not likely to carry much clout from a historical standpoint. Clouston pointed out there are other ways to measure team success. “It’s nice to look at the stat book and the record books and those types of thing, but really, that’s all they are,” Clouston said. “They are just a figure, a

JAMES MACDONALD Artistic director of Western Canada Theatre

KAYLA PEPPER Emergency manager with the province of British Columbia

KAYLA DERKACH Promotions/on-air at Jim Pattison Broadcast Group

This week, we mark the one-year anniversary of the pandemic shutting down Canada. The advent of spring is usually a sign of better times ahead — nice weather, time off work, travel, social gatherings and outdoor activity. Last year, the rug was pulled out from underneath us and we entered spring with trepidation and fear. This year, tentatively, we can happily look forward to a summer of interaction and activity. Theatre has a transformative power to improve the mental and physical health of our community. I believe the inability to gather for arts and sporting events has been one of our society’s biggest challenges. At WCT, we can’t wait until we can bring our city together again in joy and inspiration. We can also recognize how our reduced level of physical activity has challenged our positive worldview. This past winter, I played a little tennis, skied a few days and hit the treadmill at least once a month (!), but ultimately my body feels soft and broken down. I recognize how this feeling of being physically out of shape has contributed to my own sense of not feeling mentally or intellectually sharp. The pandemic separated us from each other and from our own well-being. We sat on our couches in solitude, staring at TVs or computers. We ate too much — and not well. This spring is an opportunity for us to reconnect with our friends, our community, and with ourselves. And to get out into the sunshine and run. I can’t wait.

Hi KTW readers. I’m an emergency manager with the province, a recent MA in leadership graduate and a stepmom to two teenage boys. In 2018, I completed my yoga teacher training with the Happyness Centre, but after 2020’s whirlwind of Netflix binges, online meetings, and a bonus 15 pounds, it was time for a physical, emotional and spiritual tune-up. So, in January, I laced up my runners and began my first in-person RunClub clinic. RunClub is synonymous with Jo Berry’s mantra “Movement is Change.” In that first clinic, I learned that running and walking allows us to safely distance and connect with community beyond our four walls. It allows us to feel the rhythm of our feet and breath and to extend gratitude for the beauty that is Kamloops and the unceded, traditional territory of the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc peoples. Movement helps us celebrate what we can do. Thanks to my RunClub coaches, I waddled/walked/jogged my way through the 5K Sweet Clinic and am excited to join the 5K Bold Clinic this time around. A bit quicker, a bit more challenging, but what matters most is showing up — in whatever pace, shape or form that might take. Showing up each week is the greatest act of self-love, self-respect and self-worth — it also supports us to show up for others in a good way. Movement. Is. Change. I hope you will join us.

I have joined the Boogie team behind the scenes by stepping into a social/marketing role. It has allowed me some insight into the inner workings of Boogie and how it all comes together — from the co-ordinators to sponsors to volunteers to participants — and how hard everyone works to make Boogie the Bridge happen. As for Boogie training, I’ve never done it. I have never created the time for the opportunity to see what it’s all about — until this year. Thanks, COVID-19. Like a lot of people in this city, I’ve been hit with COVID fatigue and didn’t realize how impactful something like that is on your health. The struggle is real in juggling this pandemic while still being mindful of your health — physically, mentally and spiritually. The reason I am so excited to start Boogie training is because of the culture of it and this being an opportunity to flip the script in how I have been dealing with this pandemic. Boogie training is an opportunity for positivity in my life. Boogie training is also a great opportunity to work toward your fitness goals for 2021. It’s an eight-week run/walk program that will help to prepare you to tackle Boogie the Bridge. I am excited to see where this overall Boogie the Bridge journey will take me and, if you’d like to experience it firsthand for yourself, registration is easy. Just go online to boogiethebridge.com.

WEEK 1 MOVEMENT IS CHANGE with Jo Berry, RunClub and Boogie the Bridge founder

Boogie Strong in 2021

T

he pandemic’s global social and economic fallout hit Kamloopsians hard a year ago. It hit my coaching company and our community heart project, Boogie the Bridge, like a tsunami. As governments started shutting down airports, schools and business around the world in early March 2020, we had to make the correct decision to shut down Boogie and all of our RunClub clinics and events. My fear and anxiety for my family, teams and community was compounded by the immense, sudden financial loss taking place within my small business. This also compounded my concern about what this would do to our non-profit Boogie and support to our charities. Like many of you, last spring left me paralyzed with fear, emotionally drained and struggling to make decisions or ask for help. The flight or fight stress response was in full swing. So I turned to my most reliable stressalleviating practice — mindful running. Once again, movement helped ground my mental health and became the framework of what needed to be done. Movement once again gave me strength and resilience to look after my family, serve the community and take care of our RunClub family and Boogie community. Never before has community, connection, movement and mental health been more important. With the incredible support from our sponsors, we all came together this past year to keep the Boogie message alive. We pivoted all the programming into a virtual format (eight days of Boogie and online training) and will take this energy into 2021. Our theme this year is Boogie Strong. We can’t wait to see you sporting your Boogie red with pride, passion and connection. Together, we can keep our Kamloops signature event going. HELP KEEP BOOGIE ALIVE A campaign to raise money to help bring Boogie back to the streets in 2022 is online at gofundme.com. If you can help, go to that website and search “Friends of Boogie.”

"Andy and I have used a few realtors over the years and some were better than others. However Denise Bouwmeester has been outstanding. She is personable, professional, knowledgeable, efficient, hard-working, always on time either with appointments or email/call replies. She has warm, friendly personality and really works for you, with you. We thought it would take 6 months to a year to sell our farm but we were wrong. It took only 17 days and we could not be happier! Just when we were losing hope of finding what we were looking for, and let me say, we were very particular on what we were looking for, we found just the one. The process was fast, clear and efficient! She reminded us of things we didn’t know, we wanted or could have.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

This week some of the puzzle pieces in your life may not fit correctly. That’s okay, Aries. You will find a way to make things work even if they don’t exactly line up.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Your thoughts may be focused on the spiritual for much of the week, Taurus. This is an opportunity to get in touch with meaningful things in your life.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, if things haven’t been going as planned, perhaps it’s time to reevaluate some of your choices. Have confidence that you will find a solution that works.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer, your sensitivity is heightened this week, so you may need to think twice or even three times before you share your opinions. Cool down before becoming chatty.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Figure out how you can organize your day to get things done with more efficiency, Leo. This is a better option than getting frustrated by a lack of time in your schedule.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 You may realize that the conventional ways of doing things simply are not working anymore, Virgo. Start thinking creatively rather than analytically.

LIBRA

MARCH 10 - MARCH 16, 2021 CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20

- Sept 23/Oct 23

Dreams and fantasies are more than wishful thinking, Libra. They can be the catalysts to actual goals and plans if you let them. Start making your lists.

SCORPIO

- Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, you may be more attuned to your dreams this week. While they are not true predictions of what will happen, pay attention to any recurring themes.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 A drastic change may be coming but you don’t know what that change will be just yet, Sagittarius. Keep your eyes peeled for opportunities that may be on the horizon.

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MEDIA.

Playful emotions and daydreams are filling your days and nights, Capricorn. Why not let them come out in very real ways? Find ways to incorporate more fun into your life.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 If you have been taking someone for granted lately you can rectify that this week, Aquarius. Put this person first for a change and he or she may reciprocate in the future.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20

Always be truthful, Pisces. Just remember you cannot control how others may react to whatever it is you have to say.

In Loving Memory of Our Father

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Robert Walter Evans on March 1, 2021. He was a friend, a Husband, a Father, a Grandfather, and a GreatGrandfather, but also a man of mystery. In the end, all we are, are stories, and he definitely had many.

Clifford Thomas Blaine Cooley

Robert (Bob or Walt) was born in Vancouver, BC on October 26, 1928 to William Henry Evans and Isabel Evans. His early childhood was typical, but as a teenager his rebellious genes came in full swing.

November 16, 1930 – March 12, 2006

Of all the special gifts in life However great or small To have you as my Son Was the greatest gift of all. A sel i A sel a A sel So I ca’t el, Wit  cig t I wi p w I mi y  So An ov  u .

Remembering you is easy, Dad. We do it every day, And missing you is something That will never go away.

With Love Always Sharon, Sandy and families.

Mary Wilma “Billie” McKinley With great sadness, we announce the passing of Mary Wilma “Billie” McKinley on March 5, 2021 at the age of 92 years. She is survived by her children Scott (Anna) and Craig; three grandchildren Darin, Steven and Chelsea; two greatgrandchildren Linden and Lachlan and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband Archie, and her six sisters.

Memorial donations in Billie’s name may be forwarded to Kamloops United Church, www.kamloopsunited.ca or the Alzheimer’s Society, www.alzheimer.ca Fond memories and expressions of condolence may be shared at www.valleyviewfuneralhome.com for the McKinley family.

On September 29, 1949 he married Patricia Young and they later had two children Robert and Diane. Then in 1956, Bob was transferred to Kamloops. Being an active and adventurous person, Kamloops was a perfect fit allowing for hunting, fishing, cycling and above all, skiing. Dad started skiing when his family was young. He later was known as the “Dad” that would give you a ride to the ski hill. He loved the sport. He learnt how to ski at The Kamloops Ski Hill, Lac Le Jeune, Grandview, Tod Mountain and finally Sun Peaks. His outgoing and friendly manner fostered many friendships on the mountain. It was there that he joined the “Antiques.” This was a great bunch of friends. Dad loved those days and skied until he was 86.

Obituaries

No service will be held.

Then, as many young men at the time were wont to do, he joined the Canadian Merchant Marines. Serving on Princess Louise and the S.S. Selkirk Park, he travelled from the west coast through the Panama Canal and Caribbean. During his travels and among many unmentionable adventures, he got tattoos and dental work, both dubious in nature - on November 7, 1945 he was discharged in Vancouver, BC. He joined the B.C. Government in 1947/48 and worked in the Motor Vehicle Branch where it is rumored that he was prone to hassling anyone vain enough to care about the picture on their driver’s licence. Those stories and many more about driving exams kept many people laughing for years. He loved to tell them to anyone that would listen. He also had many stories to tell of when he was a Marriage Commissioner for 15 years.

He later moved into a home for seniors and then to the Assisted Living Home at The Hamlets. His health deteriorated and he moved to long term care where he was known as “that guy.” The family would like to extend thanks to all of Dad’s caregivers, but especially the caring staff on B1 at The Hamlets for their kind and attentive care over the past 1 1/2 years. A very special thanks to Doctor Cribb, Phaedra Stuart, Leslie and longtime Doctor Ben Anders. Left to cherish his memory are his children Robert Evans and Diane Evans, his grandchildren Chris Henschel, Rob Henschel, Dean and Brittney Evans, and his greatgrandchildren Eve, Keira, Logan and Riley.

He leaves behind his brother John Charlesworth, three nieces, five nephews and their families, and many cousins, whom he loved dearly. He was predeceased by both his parents Eva and Edward, his brother Ed, his sister Margaret Anne and her husband George Lewis, Penny Charlesworth, in-laws Thelma and John Holdsworth, as well as Shirley and Cecil Gudmunson, all loved and missed.

Sheila leaves to cherish her memory: daughter Heather (Paul); son Dan (Cheryl); son Darren; sister Martha Emery as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Sheila was predeceased by her father James Joseph O’Kane on July 6, 1956; her mother Malvina Serephin O’Kane (née Berube) on April 21, 2000; previous husbands Robert Allan Erkkila on April 19, 1962 and Gerald Levasseur on October 28, 2016.

Patricia Pfeiffer

February 12, 1960 - February 12, 2021 It is with sadness we announce the passing of Patty.

Glen spent many years in the hotel industry as owners of two hotels, the Travelodge in Cache Creek and the Hospitality Inn in Kamloops. He was very involved in tourism. He was president of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District in Kamloops for a number of years. He was one of the initiators of the Rocky Mountaineer Railway as well as the International Coach Tour Industry in Kamloops.

Born in Ashcroft, BC, she is predeceased by her husband Chuck, her parents Fred and Lil, and her brother Rick. Patty is survived by her sister Lorna, three nephews and three nieces.

Glen was lucky enough to retire at the age of 58 and he moved with Sharon to Langley and subsequently Abbotsford. He and Sharon spent many years travelling together - it was one of the passions they shared. They were either planning trips or out in their RV touring North America. If they were not exploring on land they were on a cruise ship seeing all the sights the world had to offer - they didn’t miss a continent. Glen’s sense of humour, kindness, helpfulness, along with his thoughtfulness and generous ways will be missed by all who knew him. Special thanks to Dr. Holden Chow. No Flowers by request. Donations can be made to Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. (guidedogs.ca or by phone 613-6927777).

Glenn was born in Kamloops on December 15, 1959. He worked for CN first in Kamloops, then Prince George and Edmonton, before returning to Kamloops upon retirement. With a genuine love for the outdoors Glenn spent his time gardening, fishing and camping. Camping was something he would share with his mom and dad as well as many wilderness camping excursions with his dog in his early years.

KANE, Joan Frances August 26, 1926 – February 14, 2021 With great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, Joan Frances Kane (nee Mason) on February 14, 2021, at 94 years of age. Strong in spirit to the end, she was a bright light to all who knew her. She was predeceased by her parents Hugh and Spray Mason; sisters Margaret and Betty; brothers Jim, Gerry, and Doug; her husband Murray, and daughters Margaret and Barbara. She is survived by her children Maureen, Heather, Murray Jr., and Nancy; grandchildren, Ryan, Sean, Erin, Jamie, Liam, Allison, Morgan, and Kaytie; and great granddaughters Evie, Ella, Kenzie, and Abby. She is also survived by her older brother, Hugh Mason and many nieces and nephews. Mom was born on August 26, 1926 in Edmonton. Her family moved to North Vancouver when she was in her teens. During the war mom worked at Burrard drydocks in shipbuilding, catching molten rivets. She took her teacher training at Queen Mary School and taught in McBride and later in Clinton, where she met her future husband Murray. She moved to Ashcroft, married, and they started their family. While raising her children and running the home she also was a working partner in the family building supply business. Mom was always keen in exploring new ideas and enjoyed wideranging interests in life, the world, and spirituality. One such interest was painting, and she became a member of the Ashcroft Art Club. She was an inspiration to her family, friends and all those who knew her with her love of reading, her enquiring mind, her gentleness as well as her strength. Mom lived her last years at Jackson House Long Term Care Centre. The visits to see her there were curtailed by Covid but we were able to stay connected through Skype calls and phone calls. The family is profoundly grateful to the staff at Jackson House for making these calls a regular event, and for the exceptional care she received there. There will be no memorial service at this time due to Covid restrictions. Online condolences may be made at www.tvfh.ca

GIVE LAVISHLY LIVE ABUNDANTLY By Helen Steiner Rice The more you give, The more you get, The more you laugh, The less you fret, The more you live abundantly,

Memorable years in Marion’s life include 1955 when she and Fred were married after arriving in Canada and received their Canadian Citizenship and 1960 when she was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The more you’ll always have to spare,

Home and family were very important to Marion. She was a skilled seamstress, decorator, knitter and gardener and was forever updating whatever house the family lived in. She had a beautiful singing voice and enjoyed participating in Sweet Adelines and Happy Choristers. While Fred was alive they were avid golfers, skiers, badminton players and enjoyed trooping around BC on their motorbike. Marion’s family would like to thank the many friends who helped Marion and us especially over the last couple of months. We would like to thank Marion’s friends in the LDS church and we would like to thank the staff and volunteers at Hospice who cared for Marion and us in her final weeks. We will miss you very much Mom but know it is time for you to join Dad on your bikes in heaven. Due to Covid restrictions family and friends will gather at a later date when it is safe to do so. Condolences may be expressed at: www.schoeningfuneralservice.com

Footprints

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two set of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to followed you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.” The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.” Margaret Fishback Powers
