#YKASTRONG The former Kamloops Indian Residential School is bathed in an orange glow. Orange is the colour used to recognize the impact residential schools have had on the Indigenous peoples of Canada. It stems from the story of Phyllis Webstad, a six-year-old girl who was sent to a residential school in Williams Lake in 1973, wearing a new orange shirt her grandmother bought. Upon arrival at the school, and as part of a larger effort to assimilate Indigenous children into colonial society, Phyllis was stripped of her clothing. She never saw her orange shirt again. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

A HEARTBREAKING DISCOVERY

When Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc said the remains of 215 children were found on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, the issue of reconciliation again came to the forefront. Coverage can be found on pages A5, A6, A7, A8, A9, A10 and A11

More remains expected to be found MICHAEL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

A detailed report is forthcoming on the discovery of human remains buried on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, according to Tk’emlups te Secwépemc Chief Rosanne Casimir. Last week, the band revealed it had discovered the remains of 215 Indigenous children who were students of the school — which operated between 1890 and 1977 — using ground-penetrating radar to survey the area over the Victoria Day long weekend. The band is still working with a radar specialist to complete a survey of the grounds and expects to find more remains, given that the initial discovery was made surveying just a portion of the property. Tk’emlups anticipates having a full

report ready by mid-June — one Casimir said will be shared publicly, but not until it has been disclosed to its membership and other local First Nations chiefs. She said the band will also be looking into what it can do to repatriate the remains and honour the children found and the families impacted. Asked if it will be possible to determine how the 215 children died, Casimir said it’s too early to tell. The band has said, however, some of the remains are from children as young as three years of age. To the band’s knowledge, these are undocumented deaths, but it is working with the Royal B.C. Museum and other groups to determine if there are any existing records of them. The band is also working with the BC Coroners Service and engaging the home communities of students who attended the school to determine if any historical miss-

ing persons may be a match. There are documented deaths of students at the school. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation at the University of Manitoba has on its website a list of the names of 52 children who died while at the Kamloops Indian Residential School. The list of deaths range in dates from 1900 to 1971 and are part of the centre’s Missing Children Project. The children’s names are not accompanied by their ages. In an interview with KTW, Casimir described the discovery as “unbelievable.” She said the day following the May 27 announcement was spent sharing further information on the investigation with chiefs of the Secwépemculew and throughout B.C. and discussing what the next steps could look like.

technology, a breakthrough finally came via Tk’emlups’ administration applying for the Pathways to Healing grant. This latest work was accomplished by the band’s Language and Culture Department, along with ceremonial Knowledge Keepers. Following the discovery, chiefs from other communities that were host to a residential schools have contacted Tk’emlups for information so they can conduct their own groundpenetrating radar surveys. There was an outpouring of sorrow and support over the weekend as people gathered at Moccasin Square Gardens and at a memorial outside the former residential school building, where flowers and notes were left and nearby trees decorated. Asked for her opinion as to whether the former residential school should be torn down, given its history, Casimir did not wish to answer. Casimir also declined to

comment on the Catholic Church’s response to the discovery. While the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kamloops and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver issued statements in response to intervew requests from KTW, neither statement included an apology. To date, there has been no apology from the Catholic Church in general, though the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, which ran the school, did issue an apology in 1991. In addition, the United, Presbyterian and Anglican chuches have apologized for their roles in administering residential schools. The Kamloops Indian Residential School was opened under Roman Catholic administration in 1890. In 1969, the federal government took over administration of the school and operated it as residence for students attending local day schools until 1977, when it was closed.

Religious order reaches out to Tk’emlups

Open 7 days a week

FATHER KEN THORSON: ‘CLEARLY WE WERE PART OF A SYSTEM THAT LONG DID SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF DAMAGE TO FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES’

One Stop Love Shop

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS

KTW EDITOR

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

The spokesperson for the religious order that ran the Kamloops Indian Residential School for decades said the group has reached out to Tk’emlups te Secwépemc Chief Rosanne Casimir to offer assistance and to express its sympathies following the discovery of the remains of 215 children on the grounds of the former school. Father Ken Thorson is with the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, the religious congregation that administered the Kamloops residential school a few years after it opened in 1890 until 1969, when the federal government assumed control. “I want people to know that the Oblates are going to do what we can to assist the band with their investigation,” Thorson said, noting he had emailed Casimir on the weekend and will attempt to contact her again this week. “And also, certainly, to express our sympathies. I mean, clearly we were part of a system that long did significant amount of damage

to First Nations communities in Kamloops and in so many other places across the country. And so we’re trying to do what we can, along with others, to work towards reconciliation.” While the Catholic Church as a whole has not apologized for its role in residential schools in Canada, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate did offer an apology in 1991 and later paid out money in lawsuits and contributed to the $3 billion in compensation given to 28,000 claimants who were residential school survivors. Part of the apology from the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate reads: “We apologize for the part we played in the cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious imperialism that was part of the mentality with which the peoples of Europe first met the aboriginal peoples and which consistently has lurked behind the way the Native peoples of Canada have been treated by civil governments and by the churches. “We were, naively, part of this mentality and were, in fact, often a key player in its implementation. We recognize that this mentality has,

from the beginning, and ever since, continually threatened the cultural, linguistic, and religious traditions of the Native peoples. “We recognize that many of the problems that beset Native communities today — high unemployment, alcoholism, family breakdown, domestic violence, spiralling suicide rates, lack of healthy self-esteem — are not so much the result of personal failure as they are the result of centuries of systemic imperialism.” Thorson said the records from the Kamloops Indian Residential School are with the Royal BC Museum, noting the Victoria museum had been in contact with the Secwépemc Museum at Tk’emlups regarding school records before the May 27 announcement regarding the remains of the children being found. Thorson noted the Oblates have priests and brother across Canada. “And so, there may be records elsewhere. We’re looking into that right now,” he said. “We are looking into that and whatever else we have related to the school. Of course, we would want to make that available to the investigation.”

Leasing Business Property?

Although commercial leases are very common and can involve significant financial obligations, they are often not well crafted or properly reviewed. For both landlords and tenants, it pays to have your lease documents in good order, to protect you from costly mistakes. Varied potential issues may need careful attention, for example: • • • •

Is the lease “triple net” (tenant pays base rent plus taxes, utilities, insurance and common area maintenance)? Does the lease require the tenant to contribute to structural repairs of the building? What is the process for collecting outstanding rents, or evicting a tenant on default? Is there a renewal provision and how is rent calculated during a renewal term?

DISCOVERY REKINDLES PAINFUL MEMORIES Clayton Peters in front of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, where he suffered various forms of abuse between 1967 and 1977. ALLEN DOUGLAS/KTW

hock and sadness came over residential school survivor Clayton Peters upon hearing the announcement that the remains of 215 children had been found buried on grounds near the former Kamloops Indian Residential School he attended. “I grew up in there and I knew all those kids, you know. I knew some that went missing,” said Peters, who attended the school from about the ages of 10 to 17 between 1967 and 1977. On May 27, Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc announced it located the remains using groundpenetrating radar, with plans to identify and eventually repatriate the children. Peters, 64, heard the news last week over the phone. “I never knew they were doing that. I didn’t know they were killing kids. I thought they were running away. I thought they were getting away — that’s what I thought,” Peters told KTW in front of the former residential school as tears formed. “They didn’t get away, they were put over there.” He recalled being prohibited as a student from venturing down to the area where the remains have since been found. The revelation brought back bad memories of his own experience and added sorrow for Peters, who has been managing his grief with the help of a counsellor and his wife, Sherry. “Sometimes you think you’re not in somewhere, but when this happened like that — you were right here, you were in the whirlwind,” Peters said. Peters said he lived with his parents and 10 brothers on the

Tk’emlups reserve near the Mount Paul Way area when he was taken to residential school. He now wears a picture of his mom, dad and his deceased daughter on days he needs strength. Peters spoke of how his father became involved in an armed conflict with police when a social worker came to take him and his siblings away. Both his mother and father, Nancy and Peter, struggled with addiction issues stemming from their own time at the residential school and Peters believes that experience caused his dad to react the way he did. His father was convinced to put down his gun and was arrested, while Peters was

caught minutes after attempting to run away. He remembers being choked upon arrival at the residential school by a priest who seemed mad police had to chase him. “And he said, ‘If you ever run, we’ll send you far away. You’ll never get found again,’” Peters recounted. From a window at the top of the school, Peters said he tried to find his porch light, worried for his mother, left alone in the house. He described beatings and mental abuses at the school over the years — not seeing some members of his family for decades or ever again. He told KTW feeling at times as though he wished he wasn’t native,

that his skin colour was different, that there was something evil about him, as the priests had told him. He talked about how his experience made him hate God, religion, the church, white people and society, and how other school survivors helped him recover over time and reverse those feelings. At the residential school, Peters said he experienced abuse by the staff on a daily basis. He described getting hit with a thick strap or tossed in a dark room as punishments — feeling helpless without his parents amidst the abuse. “You were treated, always, with disrespect,” Peters said. He said he would get a beating

for refusing to bow and was once kicked in the back by a priest for being unable to kneel. The kick injured his tailbone. After that, Peters decided to escape on foot with his brother and was briefly reunited with his parents. “I yelled ‘Mom! Dad!’ and they heard us and we ran down that hill and I got to hug my mom and dad for one minute and then the cops took us back,” Peters said, adding he was never allowed to visit his parents during summer vacations or holidays. Kamloops’ residential school was opened in 1890. A few years later, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, a Catholic Church congregation, took over administration. In 1969, control of the school was handed to the federal government, which operated it as a residence for students attending local day schools until 1977, when the residential school was closed. Peters described his eventual reunion with his parents as the most beautiful event in his life. “To hold my mom and to tell her I loved her and I missed her. And my dad, we looked at each other and he knew. He was here before. He knew what I went through,” Peters said. Asked what the response needs to be to the announcement of the discovery of the chldren’s remains, Peters believes the building should be torn down and something positive, such as a park with amenities for children, built in its place. “Let them run and laugh here. I’d like to see that before I die. I’d like to see this [building] down,” he said. SALES & INSTALLATIONS See A MONUMENT, A9

‘A monument to every evil that happened’ From A8

As for the Catholic Church, all Peters wants to hear is an admission it had a bad group of people that ran the place. “They can’t all be like that can they?” he asked. “There was a priest up here the other day. I wanted to go talk to him and say, ‘It’s not your fault. It’s not God’s fault this happened. It’s those people that came to look after us here and what their goals were meant to be.’” Peters said much racism still exists and needs to end. “We’re not enemies,” he said. “We grew up in the same city, the same world.” DAY SCHOLAR’S MEMORIES Gus Gottfriedson, now 71, was a day scholar (student who attended classes in the day and went home at night) at the residential school in 1958 and 1959, when he was in grades 4 and 5. He remembers plenty of verbal abuse, along with physical punishment. “There was constant abuse, constant violence and that was too much for me,” he told KTW. He told his mom he did not want to continue going to the school and, for his Grade 6 year, he returned to Alan Matthews elementary (located at Battle Street and Sixth Avenue, where the Kamloops RCMP detachment is today). Gottfriedson said the discovery of the children’s remains confirms “rumblings” he and others have heard through the decades, stories of students suddenly going missing and whispers of their deaths. He said his time at the school included verbal reprimands and consistent slaps from the teachers. Gottfriedson said he remembers one day in Grade 4 when his teacher, a Quebecois named Miss Savoie, was teaching the class French songs. “I said to Miss Savoie, ‘I don’t know these songs. Where are our songs?” he recalled. “ I got cuffed in the head and sent to the cloakroom.” The mandate of the residential school system, Gottfriedson noted, was to beat the Indigenous culture out of the students. While noting he understands why other survivors wish to keep the residential school standing as a reminder and teaching tool, Gottriedson said his preference is that it be demolished. “To me, it’s a monument to every evil that happened there,” he said. “It’s a constant reminder of what went on there. It gives me the creeps to go near there.”

Apology and actions are truly needed

I

asked the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kamloops and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver for comment on Tk’emlups te Secwépemc’s announcement that the remains of 215 children had been found on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School. Instead of agreeing to an interview, both groups issued statements expressing sadness. Notably, neither statement included an apology for the atrocities committed by the Catholic Church during its decades of running the Kamloops school and other facilities across Canada.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS Expressing sadness and sympathy is a rather hollow gesture when not accompanied by a heartfelt apology that illustrates the perpetrating institution truly understands the harm it has done to generations of a people.

My experience with the religious order than ran the Kamloops school — Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate — was different. Not only did Father Ken Thorson return my call and agree to an interview, he repeated the message included in the group’s 1991 apology — that it had contributed greatly to the “cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious imperialism” that lies at the root of the many problems suffered today by First Nations peoples. Since the discovery of those missing children, there have been renewed calls for Pope Francis to apologize on behalf of the Church for the cultural genocide it brought on First Nations

students via its operations of residential schools. The pope and the Church have steadfastly refused such requests in the past and it doesn’t seem likely the remains of 215 kids will be shocking enough to change minds. It is bewildering, of course, but that should not stop Catholics and non-Catholics alike from demanding the Church offer an apology — and more. The Church should be stating in no uncertain terms that it is ready and willing to do whatever it is Tk’emlups te Secwépemc asks of it — financially and otherwise. If a decision is made to demolish that red brick building and construct something new,

the Church should be first in line, offering to fund the venture. After all, apologizing for past atrocities is not a new practice for the Catholic Church. The Church has apologized to victims of sexual abuse in Ireland and to Indigenous peoples in Bolivia for crimes of colonialism. And an apology to residential school survivors is one of 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. If the United, Presbyterian and Anglican churches can all offer official apologies for their sordid roles in the residential school system, why can’t the Catholic Church? editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter: @ChrisJFoulds

A much deeper understanding is beginning The Kamloops-Thompson board of education sends its deepest sympathies to Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc and all Indigenous communities impacted by the discovery of the remains of 215 children on the grounds of the former residential school. Confirmation of the residential school system’s historical atrocities last week is reverberating through our students, their families, our staff, our communities and our country. Through the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, many survivors’ stories have been heard, but this physical evidence of the atrocities of residential schools brings to the forefront the extensive work still required to right the wrongs of the past. The school district honours the First Peoples’ principles of learning and

To honour those who suffer trauma and harm because of residential schools, and their families and communities who are mourning, all schools and district buildings will lower the Canadian flag to half-mast as a sign of respect. Throughout the week, staff and students will be asked to wear orange shirts as an acknowledgement of the trauma and harm caused by residential schools. The tragic legacy of residential schools continues to impact communities and our country. The board of education cannot pretend to

In the words of the Truth and Reconciliation Report: “Getting to the truth was hard, but getting to reconciliation will be harder. It requires that the paternalistic and racist foundations of the residential school system be rejected as the basis for an ongoing relationship. Reconciliation requires that a new vision, based on a commitment to mutual respect, be developed”. Rhonda Kershaw is chair of the School District 73 board of education.

system underfunds Indigenous children while barely teaching our history. I am angry that we are told to just get over the genocide that we are still trying to survive. I am also angry that I am not surprised. There are death pits like the one discovered in Kamloops at every residential school in the country — containing the small, broken bodies of our children, thrown in holes by priests and nuns. There are thousands of deaths swept under the rug of history. We talk about truth and reconciliation, but how many settlers have read the full Truth and Reconciliation Commission report? How many have met face-to-face with residential school survivors and heard their stories firsthand? How many have visited the burial sites and unmarked graves near their own communities? Remembering those stories, it is easy for me to imagine the many ways that each of those children was killed. But they were never forgotten. There were families and loved ones who held questions in their minds and sorrow in their hearts. Now it is up to the rest of us to remember them, too. And it is time for us to act.

In North Kamloops, some no longer want to be JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

People gather outside The Loop in North Kamloops on Thursday, May 27. The drop-in centre is at 405A Tranquille Road, at the corner of MacKenzie Avenue. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

Complaints about a highly visible drop-in service for people on the street have led the City of Kamloops to deem a Tranquille Road address a nuisance property. Following a meeting with the city on May 27, Glenn Hilke said the city has deemed The Loop, at 405A Tranquille Rd. in North Kamloops, a nuisance property. The Loop provides thrice-daily meal service seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., the only one of its kind on the North Shore. Hilke — who is known in the community as someone who pushes boundaries to get help for people in need — refutes the designation, insisting the centre is not a nuisance. “No, we are a good neighbour, that’s what we are,” Hilke said, noting the positive impact the centre has had on the neighbourhood is in helping people stay calm and bal-

anced so they don’t upset peace in the neighbourhood. “Can you imagine if a lot of the people we helped were just starving, dehydrated? Living in the same clothes for months? … I think the mental-health environment in our city, in our neck of the woods, would be even more intense if people did not have the support that we’ve been giving them,” he said. “And we are getting people off the streets, just like ASK Wellness and other agencies that work on shelter and housing.” The city’s community services manager, Tammy Blundell, said she could not speak to the designation of the nuisance property, but noted the city is working with the property owner, who she said is “responding positively” to figuring out solutions for issues occurring at the address. “The city has a process that must be completed prior to disclosing any information regarding that designation,” Blundell said. Coun. Dale Bass said the city has

received numerous complaints of late about The Loop, which appears to be attracting more individuals at a time of the year community services organizations acknowledge leads to an influx of homeless people. Bass said complaints have included a bake sale event contravening COVID-19 protocols, people sleeping in the parking lot, open drug use and accumulation of garbage. She said the city needs a proper day lodge for the street-entrenched, complete with professional supports, and called The Loop a “stop gap.” Bass said many of the complaints the city is receiving are based on fear. “But that’s irrelevant because people are afraid,” she said. “I’m getting grief from Glenn that these are just people who don’t like the homeless. Well, I can’t change that fear and that fear is stopping people from going down into that area to shop, which is affecting the businesses.”

part of The Loop on Tranquille Road Arpa Investments partner Joshua Knaak, who has myriad development projects in the area, said a number of social services based on the North Shore are improving the community. The Loop is an outlier, he said, operating in the wrong place by the wrong people. Knaak said the centre is attracting a problematic crowd and does not have adequate supervision, with negative spinoffs on the neighbourhood. “There’s open drug use, there’s fights,” Knaak said. “We had to call the RCMP the other day because there was physical altercation going on back there. The Loop is just blissfully unaware of that. “There’s overnight camping going on not only on his site, which is problematic on its own, but they’re also suggesting people stay in along in the alley behind the Taiwanese restaurant.”

The North Shore Improvement Association released a statement, stating the organization previously endorsed funding for extension of outreach hours and services at The Loop until 10 p.m. The statement said overnight sheltering and congregation has since occurred, causing significant disruption and further stigma and safety concerns among residents and business owners. The statement said the area is drawing, at times, 30 individuals, including open drug use, exchange of goods and social disruption. In those instances, the NSBIA stated, the group is larger than can be “reasonably managed by volunteers.” On the flip side, however, the NSBIA conceded The Loop has filled a gap in community services and resulted in six people securing housing. Hilke said the issue is one of “optics,” with some concerned

about seeing people gathering, shopping carts filled with personal belongings and the perception of substance use. Hilke worries the nuisance property designation could lead to closure of The Loop. KTW visited The Loop on a recent afternoon. Street issues are not new in Kamloops and people have often been relegated to alleyways or riverbanks. The Loop, however, is highly visible on Tranquille Road and is an area that collides with one that has also seen an injection of new business life of late, between redevelopment and hip businesses, like Bright Eye Brewing and Red Beard. Tables and canopies could be seen outside of The Loop, with a few people seated outdoors, a few other individuals sitting, dazed, in a corner and personal belongings piled up in some areas. Others filtered in and out of the area, including

on two wheels. A volunteer, who asked not to be named, said that while the city has said it received complaints about The Loop, nobody has come to the centre to express concerns. Inside The Loop building, borscht was cooking on the stove, courtesy of purple-fingered, busy-bee volunteers who stopped to tell this newspaper the centre provides yet another basic need: a bathroom. Nearby Tim Horton’s doesn’t allow use of its washroom by non-customers and McArthur Island’s public facilities are a distance away. A client who asked not to be named said that if The Loop was not available, he would instead wander the streets. The Loop provides a place to eat, socialize and talk with volunteers who care, he said. “That’s important because a lot of us are going through hell, you know?” he said.

Hands off your cards at Kamloops casinos WHEN CASCADES AND CHANCES REOPEN, IT WILL BE UNDER MUCH DIFFERENT RULES When casinos do reopen, extra space between slot machines will be the norm. BCLC PHOTO

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Ltd., which owns Kamloops’ two casinos, is in the middle of reopening preparations as B.C.’s gambling industry prepares a return to business under COVID-19 safety protocols. On May 25, the provincial government announced its four-step plan for easing restrictions under the pandemic, with casinos and bingo halls getting the green light as early as July 1, depending on case counts and immunizations, after being shuttered for more than a year, since March 2020. The BC Lottery Corporation has released details outlining what changes patrons can expect to see at places such as Aberdeen’s Cascades and the North Shore’s Chances casinos, which includes Plexiglass barriers at table games and players prohibited from touching their cards. According to the BCLC, specific reopening details for each casino are being developed

through consultation between the Kamloops-based Crown corporation and its service providers, ministry staff, public-health officials and WorkSafe BC. Gateway spokesperson Tanya Gabara was not able to confirm if the company will open its Kamloops, or all its operations, if permitted, on July 1. Nor could she confirm if preclosure staffing levels will be restored at the Kamloops casinos or what their occupancy limits will be. Gabara told KTW via email

that the company can only confirm what has been released by BCLC. She said Gateway is working as quickly as possible to finalize plans and that she will have more information “in the coming days.” “But I can say we are very excited to see casinos and community gaming centres included in [May 25] announcement of the provincial restart plan,” Gabara said. “We look forward to welcoming everyone back as early as July

Barriers will be in place where physical distancing isn’t possible or where casino employees, such as dealers or cash-cage staff, must interact with players. Occupancies will be reduced to match the number of seats on gambling floors, in combination with occupancy for adjoining

restaurants and lounges. Players won’t be permitted to touch their cards and, as a result, only table games that allow for cards to be dealt face-up will be available, with the exception of squeeze baccarat, which utilizes one-time-use cards. The BCLC said casino staff will be required to complete detailed training about enhanced health and safety protocols and will monitor capacity and other facility standards, including air quality. The industry has been preparing its COVID-19 protocols since as early as last summer. Gabara said Gateway has been working for months to make its facilities a safe environment for the return of both guests and employees, noting casinos are among the most highly regulated environments and, as such, staff are familiar with the implementation and enforcement of strict compliance requirements.

Fitness firms hope this reopening is last one JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Local fitness studio owners are cautiously optimistic following B.C.’s reopening plans released last week — and they continue to make plans for alternative classes this summer. Oxygen Yoga Kamloops owner Dina McLeod pointed out this is the third reopening plan since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’ve been here before,” McLeod said, noting business ultimately went sideways for the fitness industry, with multiple forced closures. “I am cautiously optimistic, but feeling really hopeful for the first time in a year, which is wonderful.” McLeod said she plans to reopen her Aberdeen yoga studio soon, at reduced capacity. B.C.’s restart plan allows lowintensity group exercise to resume

indoors effectively immediately, with limited capacity. McLeod said she will continue to utilize city parks, as well. She is teaching in Westsyde Centennial Park and said it is wonderful, with children heard laughing in the background and space plentiful. “I will be the first to buy a pass, should the pilot project move into next year for the park,” McLeod said. Kamloops council has approved a pilot to allow group fit-

ness in six parks at a reduced rate. The parks are expected to include Westsyde Centennial Park, MacDonald Park, Parkcrest Park, Peterson Creek (a grassy area near the Xget’tem’ Trail), Valleyview Centennial Park (grassy area west of the soccer field) and Pineview Valley Park. The monthly rate is expected to be $79.20 plus GST and seasonal rate expected to be $443.52 plus GST. K Spin owner Samantha Gibson

said she was caught off-guard by news of how soon she could reopen her spin studio. The downtown space is currently undergoing renovations. Gibson said if vaccinations continue to ramp up and case counts remain low, B.C.’s restart plan would allow her to open indoors at reduced capacity on June 15, at the earliest, and at a higher capacity on July 1, under guidelines around high-intensity group fitness classes.

True impact of pandemic may not be known until 2022 SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

Hospitality and tourism consultant Bryce Herman said restaurants have had it bad, operating in various capacities since the beginning of the pandemic, including a health order that barred indoor dining, which expired on May 25. “This has been a very trying number of

months for the industry. But the announcement yesterday (May 25), I think, has put some new blood into people and I think they’re quite excited about the strategy,” he said. If, by July 1, cases are low, hospitalizations declining and first vaccine doses are given to at least 70 per cent of the province, the limit on group dining will be lifted and restaurants will operate based on new safety plans.

“The reality is, there’s a road map. It’s not based on dates, but based on data, but that’s OK because the data is moving in the right direction,” Herman said. The impact has been more acute on some restaurants, but Herman said it’s still hard to tell what the real impact has been. Herman, who has been in and out of the industry since he was a teenager, said he knows the pitfalls.

HOLMES IS WHERE THE

Today is my 55th birthday. I can honestly say that I look AND feel my age. At 3 a.m. when I get out of bed to limp and shuffle my way to the bathroom, I feel 80. If I don’t stretch after a long run, I can barely get out of my car. A long run for me now is just under two hours. Five years ago a long run for me was about four hours. If I stay up past 11 p.m., I feel like I have been hit by a truck the next morning. The other day I was finishing a hike in Peterson Creek and came out in the green space of the park and saw a group of preschoolers with a couple of instructors and they were singing that recognizable song that we all sang as little kids. It goes, ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes, eyes, ears, mouth and nose’ I found myself smiling as I sang along thinking that it really isn’t a kids song, but more for middle aged people like my husband and I who have had issues with every single one of those body parts.

I am one year older than my husband. Today is also our 10th wedding anniversary. We both have the usual aches and pains that come along with aging. Don’t get me wrong, we are both active, and in fact my husband still skis moguls like he did 20 years ago, but the difference is he doesn’t recover the same. I always smile when I read the dating profiles I get as 95 per cent of them claim that the person is way younger than they appear. Regardless if they are in their 40s or 80s.

They say “I am a youthful 68”, or “I am a young 79”, or “I am 54 but look 10 years younger.” Some people even say that their friends and family tell them how young they look. Seriously?? Let’s be honest, they are biased! Would they still be your friends if they told you that you appeared 10 years older than your actual age? I also should point out that sometimes really healthy outdoor enthusiasts who are elite athletes can sometimes look a little older as they have spent countless hours in the elements of wind, rain, and too much sun which ages the skin a lot. Those same people still present much younger as they are so fit and active. Let’s face it. Sometimes a song, a smell, or a memory can instantly take us back to that first kiss, special dance, drive-in movie, and for a fleeting moment we can all feel 30 again. But when we open our eyes, reality hits when we reach for our reading glasses, check the

“I think the recoil of what’s happening will not really be seen for at least another year,” he said. “The deep-rooted financial impact will come to bear, and people will fight. Most people in the restaurant business are driven by passion and they will hold on as long as they can, but at the end of the day, there will be some losses — there’s no doubt in my mind.”

I have also met 30-year-olds that can’t keep up to me. It isn’t about actual age. It’s about health, wellness, and fitness. The best way to test out how youthful you think you are is to go on an activity date like hiking, biking, paddle boarding, golf, pickleball, rollerblading, etc. If you are both relatively equal in pace and one person isn’t huffing and puffing, and unable to breathe, and you can have a fun conversation while doing said activity, then you could be off to the races.

Savona author wins prestigious book awards ADAM LASKARIS

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

windspeaker.com

A Kamloops-area author has won a prestigious Governor General’s Literary Award, shortly after winning the Amazon Canada First Novel award. Savona author Michelle Good won the award for her book, Five Little Indians, published by Harper Perennial/HarperCollins Canada. The awards were announced on Tuesday, with seven English and seven French categories. Good’s novel won in the English Fiction category. The author has seen quite a number of accolades come her way for her debut novel, but the reality of the book’s success hasn’t fully set in, she said. “I am in a state of gracious shock,” Good said, adding she has been ‘bombarded’ with media and speaking requests as word of the book continues to get out. Five Little Indians tells the story

Michelle Good’s debut novel, Five Little Indians, tells the story of five young students at residential school in British Columbia.

of five young students at residential school in British Columbia. “The paths of the five friends cross and crisscross over the decades as they struggle to overcome, or at least forget, the trauma they endured during their years at the Mission,” the description of the book reads. Along with winning the Governor General’s Literary Award

and the Amazon Canada First Novel Award, Five Little Indians was a finalist for the 2020 Atwood Gibson Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize, was on the Scotiabank Giller Prize longlist and made it onto the Globe and Mail, CBC, Apple, Kobo and Indigo Best Book of 2020 lists. The book is also up for an Indigenous Voices Award, to be announced in late June.

“Every time the book gets a greater profile, there are more hearts and minds that can be opened to the direct and intergenerational impact of the residential school legacy, and perhaps it will contribute to an ongoing and a better participation in reconciliation,” Good said. It’s a sentiment that rings particularly clear after last week’s announcement that the remains of 215 children had been discovered in an unmarked mass grave at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School. Before being published, Five Little Indians was something Good had been working on for nearly a decade. Good said the writing process for the book, released in 2020, began in 2011, while she was studying for a graduate degree at UBC. “I made the decision that I was going to do a Masters of Fine Arts specifically to write this book,” Good said. After finishing up the degree,

she decided she would spend the next couple of years fine-tuning the work until she was satisfied with the result. “I wanted to let it grow beyond the confines of thesis requirements,” Good said, adding she is happy to let her writing take as long as necessary. “I’m not one of those really disciplined persons,” she said. “I do get up at five every morning, but I don’t set a particular amount of time to write. I just am driven by the intensity of the writing itself and I write until I’ve run out of things to write. I let it gestate and let it carry on and carry me to the next moment when it’s flowing freely. I really prefer living in quiet, rural places. I have a beautiful eight-foot picture window that looks out over a lake and it’s very inspirational. That’s where I write.” Good, a member of the Red Pheasant Cree Nation in Saskatchewan, is now working on a new novel inspired by her own family history.

Life sentence for gangland murder MICHAEL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

The man convicted of killing a Kamloops man and wounding a woman inside their Brocklehurst townhome in February of 2019 will serve a life sentence. On Monday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley handed Hugh Alexander McIntosh, 52, a mandatory 25 years in jail for the first-degree murder of Jason Glover, who was shot to death. Firstdegree murder convictions carry with them no chance to apply for parole until at least 25 years of a sentence has been served. In addition, Gord Macintosh was handed a 12-year sentence, to be served concurrently, for the attempted murder of Kelly Callfas, who was shot in the face. During trial, court hear the

gangland shooting was part of dispute in the local drug trade. Callfas owed money to her supplier after being apparently robbed in early February of that year. Gordie Braaten, 37, McIntosh’s co-accused, worked for or with Callfas’ dealer, JD, and had questioned her over who took the

money. Braaten didn’t believe Callfas when she told him she didn’t know who stole the cash. On Feb. 15, 2019, Braaten went to Callfas’ home with McIntosh, who had a gun with him, for the express purpose of intimidating Callfas and Glover. Upon meeting in a basement bedroom in the

home, McIntosh is said to have fired multiple shots, hitting Glover once in the back of the head and Callfas six times as she sat on her bed. Both Callfas and Glover were conscious following the shooting. Glover, who was not part of Callfas’ criminal operation, later died in hospital. In March of this year, following a month-long trial by jury, McIntosh was found guilty of first-degree murder and attempted murder. Before that trial concluded, Braaten pleaded guilty to manslaughter with a weapon for his role in bringing McIntosh to the home and was handed a seven-year prison sentence. With time served, accounting for 1.5 days credited for pre-trial custody, Braaten has about four more years left behind bars.

7 Ways to Diversify Your Portfolio My youngest son would eat the same thing every day if we would let him. Like many kids, he is resistant to stepping outside his comfort zone and does not realize, despite mom and dad's best efforts, that eating different foods provides numerous health benefits. Humans are creatures of habit. We often gravitate to what we know and avoid what we don’t. This often is the case when it comes to investing. As of May 2021, according Statista.com, the S&P/TSX Composite Index currently accounts for only 2.5% of the world stock market, however the average Canadian investor has 60% of their portfolio in Canada. This is referred to as "home bias." By contrast, according to the Canada Pension Plan web site, they invest only 16% in Canada. Diversification aims to maximize return by investing in different areas that would each react differently to the same event. Many investment professionals agree that diversification is the most important component of reaching long-range financial goals while minimizing risk.

1.

Asset Class: Number one for a reason… Asset class, also referred to as asset allocation, can account for up to 90% of an investor's return. It refers to the portion of a portfolio that is allocated between stocks, bonds, and cash. Everyone's asset allocation will differ based on his or her investment objectives, risk tolerance and unique circumstances.

5.

Sector: Markets are typically broken down into 11 sectors. Currently according to TSX.com, Canada's market is dominated by three sectors: Financials, Energy and Materials accounting for 58%. Investing only in Canada could leave you disproportionately exposed to financials and energy, while very light in info tech and health care and consumer sectors.

2.

Geography: We believe that investing only in Canada leaves your portfolio under-represented in the world market. Most of the things we own in our home and driveway are made globally. Over 97% of investment opportunities lie outside of Canada. The U.S. stock market is the largest by far, accounting for nearly 56% of the world market.

6.

Currency: Investing outside of Canada adds a layer of risk dealing with currency exposure. Large swings in currency can either add or detract from a portfolio. The options are to hedge out currency in part, all together, or let it ride. Many investment vehicles offer a hedged version that removes the currency component to international investing.

3.

Style: There are several investment styles, but the two most common are value and growth. A value approach tends to focus on price, fundamental strength of the company and if it is over/under valued. Banks, pipelines and railroads tend to be value investments. A growth investor tends to focus on the growth prospects of the company and competitive advantages. The tech sector is a growth industry some notable names include be Amazon, Facebook and Google.

7.

Non-Traditional Assets: With increased globalization, we are seeing increased instances of different stock markets moving in the same direction, also called positive correlation. The goal of non-traditional assets is to find investments that act independently of the main markets. Hedge funds, private debt, and commodities are a few examples.

Below are seven strategies that we employ to diversify and help reduce risk in our clients' portfolios:

Women Who Care.

In response to Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc’s announcement that the remains of 215 Indigenous children were found on the grounds of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, School District 73 is preparing to support its staff, students and counsellors while taking the lead from Tk’emlúps on how best to do so. On Monday night, the district began its board meeting with a presentation that included singing and drumming by elder and knowledge keeper Ivy Chelsea, who connected with the board virtually from the former residential school site. In front of the monument dedicated to residential school survivors, which is surrounded by flowers and cards left by visitors, Chelsea told a crowd gathered around the monument that she was there because of the strength of her ancestors. “I’m here because of their strength. You’re here because of your family’s strength,” she told the crowd and school board. School trustee Diane Jules told the board it has been a hard weekend for the Tk’emlúps community. “I know that the survivors, my mother being one of them, were really shook up. Because, as Ivy said, it validates all the stories we knew about, that we’ve been talking about, that nobody would hear, nobody would listen,” she said. Jules joined the board in 2018 as its first Indigenous trustee. Upon hearing the news last week, the

school district immediately went to work contacting parents, staff and students. Over the weekend, staff began meeting with the Ministry of Education’s newly formed resource team, which has offered its assistance in dealing with the impact of the news both in Kamloops and across the rest of the province. Mike Bowden, district principal for Aboriginal education, said the impact of the event will be far-reaching. “It’s not just this district that is going to be dealing with this, it will be all districts,” he said. Bowden said information is going out to support teachers, especially those who might be anxious about doing the right thing. He also said SD73 has already done a lot of work with regard to topics of residential schools reconciliation through its work with Orange Shirt Day in September. “We’ve had a lot of conversations around being trauma-sensitive in classrooms,” he said, noting the topic will be a triggering one to many members of the community. Bowden said a district group, Indigenous Family Voices for Education, is also involved. The Indigenous parent group has been mobilized to help support students and families. Among the district’s immediate plans are to fly its flags at half-mast and asking schools to plan an Orange Shirt Day or other activity that engages students. On Monday, many staff and students wore orange on their own initiative, following social media calls to do so. The SD73 board was also seen in orange on Monday evening.

Valleyview church opening day-care centre with 95 spaces JESSICA WALLACE

STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Christian church in Valleyview recognized a need for child-care spaces within its congregation and is now planning a fall opening of a non-profit daycare facility welcoming everyone in the community. Gateway Children’s Centre will offer three programs with 95 new childcare spaces and be located on the bottom floor of Gateway City Church, which is at 163 Oriole Rd.

For the past two years, Gateway Children’s Centre director Natalie Statham said, the church has been working to provide day-care services. She said the child-care centre will be inclusive and accept everyone, regardless of religious affiliation. Programming will have a Christian element, with prayers before meals, celebration of Easter and Christmas and the encouragement of values like patience, honesty and giving back to one’s community. A sock drive is planned

during colder weather and church seniors will volunteer to teach skills like gardening. “Everyone is welcome here,” Statham said. Statham said the church had sufficient space for a child-care centre, so it applied for and received grant funding through a B.C. child-care new spaces grant. The grant provided startup funds for construction, renovations and play spaces. Indoors, the centre will have 3,000 square feet of day-care space, as well as 5,000 square feet of space outside. Most of

the time will be spent outdoors, Statham said, noting children “thrive” in outdoor spaces. “We have a big space in front, grass, and then we have a blacktop area out back that we’re going to have for basketball and wheeled toys,” she said. “Wheeled ride-ons, tricycles, things like that.” Statham said the centre will offer morning and afternoon preschool care(ages 30 months to school age), full-day care (ages 30 months to school age) and before and after-school care, with transportation.

The centre will be open until 6 p.m., with the goal of accommodating parents’ work schedules. Statham said the hope is to open by the time school begins in early September. Construction is thus far on schedule. Registrations are underway. For more information, go online to gatewaychildcare.ca. “We have a wait list and we’re taking registrations,” Statham said. “I’ve gotten quite a few registrations already. There is such a need for child care.”

Bennett appointed as provincial court judge MICHAEL POTESTIO

LOCAL JOURNALISM INITIATIVE

michael@kamloopsthisweek.com

As of June 7, lawyer Lorianna Bennett will be the newest provincial court judge in Kamloops. DAVE EAGLES/KTW

It has been a surreal week for Lorianna Bennett, who is preparing for a new chapter in her legal career as a provincial court judge in her hometown. “It feels like I’m going through an out-of-body experience right now,” Bennett said of the changes in her life as she winds up her law practice. Effective June 7, Bennett will be the newest provincial court judge in Kamloops. The appointment will fill the judicial vacancy created by upcoming retirements and help to address a backlog of cases as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The family and personal injury lawyer has enjoyed a 23-year legal career at Paul

and Company — a law practice she has with her older brother of 10 years, David Paul. She started in 1998 as an associate and, in 2012, bought into the firm that she is now leaving. “We always joked he was the Paul and I was the company,” Bennett said. While some may not wish to work with family, Bennett said she wouldn’t have had it any other way. “Nobody would have been as flexible and as caring and as selfless to teach me the skills and everything he knew,” Bennett said of her brother. “I think he had a vision for me beyond the vision I had for myself.” Bennett’s family couldn’t be prouder to see her on the bench. “I feel like a huge part of me has been cut off, but at the same time I’m as

happy as I could ever be for Lorianna because she will serve the people of British Columbia in an extraordinary way,” said David, noting his sister’s work ethic. Their mother, Dora Paul — who immigrated to Canada from Italy at age 15 and didn’t have the same opportunity to pursue higher education — said she is very proud of her daughter. “She was very hardworking. She’s going to be more hardworking now,” Dora said, noting she wishes her husband was alive to see his daughter’s accomplishment. “When she was born, my husband said he won a million dollars,” Dora said. Bennett’s niece, Natalie Paul, who is a new lawyer, said her aunt has been a great role model to her. “Definitely have some big shoes to fill,” she said. See LOVE OF LAW, A21

Bennett’s love of the law, encouragement from others and decision-making work on the Employment and Assistance Appeals Tribunal and Health Professions Review Board during her career led her to pursue becoming a judge. She first applied when she was just 38 and secured an interview, which galvanized her latest application three years ago, which has been successful. Bennett, 48, said she is feeling energetic about the new endeavour and is looking forward to being involved in criminal law, noting issues such as mental health, racism and drug addiction that are often in the media and play a role in court. She will also be one of the youngest judges to serve, being under the average age of early to mid-50s for such a position. Born and raised in Kamloops, Bennett graduated high school from St. Ann’s Academy and completed her bachelor of sciences degree at the then-University College of the Cariboo (now TRU) in 1994 with a major in animal biology. Bennett had received a full scholarship to the University of British Columbia to complete a masters of science, but had also applied to law school — a career she had been encouraged to pursue since the days of her undergrad while doing janitorial work at her brother’s law practice. With a decision to make, her brother tipped the scales when he signed her acceptance letter on her behalf while she was in Europe doing some post-university travelling.

Bennett moved to Edmonton for three years to attend law school at the University of Alberta and was called to the bar in B.C. in 1998. She said she felt compelled to give law a try, knowing she had a place to work in her brother’s practice and a desire to live in a familiar place. “And I didn’t look back,” she said. In addition to law, Bennett has a love of fitness and her family — including husband Sean Bennett, CEO of the Bonaparte Indian Band, and their three children. They maintain a ranch outside of Kamloops.

X Fest is a go, while Music in Park unlikely KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

X Fest: Theatre Under the Trees will return to Kamloops’ Prince Charles park in August. Tickets will go on sale on July 1 and early bird pricing continues until July 15. The play itself will be presented from Aug. 3 to Aug. 21. The event is one of the first of likely many events that will re-

emerge in the city in the coming months, as COVID-19 cases fall and B.C. lays out its restart plan. Audience size will remain limited and those viewing will need to wear masks, self-assess for symptoms, physically distance and provide contact information for contact tracing, if necessary. A “relaxed” refund policy is also on offer, making it easier for those who feel unwell to stay home.

As for the entertainment, this year’s festival will feature musical Gruff, featuring an all-local cast and creative team. The play was written by Mercedes Bátiz-Benét, Judd Palmer and Brooke Maxwell. It will be directed by Tracey Power, a local and playwright herself and also the director for this production. The tale, inspired by Three Billy

Goats Gruff, tells the story of Poor Goat, Rich Goat and a goat-eating troll in a rock ‘n’ roll story about whether the grass really is greener on the other side. MUSIC IN PARK UPDATE KTW spoke to City of Kamloops special events supervisor Sean Smith to find out the fate of two Riverside Park staples: Canada Day festivities and Music in the Park.

“At this point, we don’t see any festivities happening yet in the park,” Smith said. For a second year, the city is planning a virtual event for Canada Day, with details expected soon. The fate of Music in the Park this year is not so certain. Smith said it’s too early to tell and whether or not it will happen this year is still unconfirmed.

Thanks for your patience during construction.

Help Sophia get her service dog KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK

The family of a young Kamloops girl, who at age four faces a series of medical challenges that require a high level of care, is hosting a pair of fundraisers in a bid to obtain a service dog. Sophia Halbgewachs has a rare genetic syndrome called Dup15q, which is an extra copy of a portion of chromosome 15. Some symptoms include hypotonia, epilepsy, cognitive delay, motor delays and autism. In addition, Sophia has gastrointestinal issues and a degenerative disease of the nervous system called ataxia, causing her to lose balance and fall. She is also at risk of sudden death in epilepsy. Her parents, Steve and Glenna Halbgewachs, describe Sophia as a “sweet energetic light in our lives” who likes to jump on the trampoline, swim, dance and play with her older brother, Jaxson. The family said a service dog would greatly improve Sophia’s quality of life, including being able to tether her to the animal, provide emotional support and training it to look out for her safety. Between the cost of obtaining a dog

from a breeder and training the dog to specifically serve Sophia’s needs, however, service dogs are expensive. The family said it has been advised it would cost $25,000, including testing and equipment also needed. That is less than the cost of purchasing a fully trained service dog. As such, the family is hosting a series of fundraisers in order to help pay for the service dog. The online events include an auction and music bingo. Bidding for the online auction opens at 9 a.m. on Sunday, June 6, and closes on Wednesday, June 9, at 9 p.m. The online auction can be found on Facebook by searching “Online auction for Sophia’s service dog.” Music bingo night will be held on Saturday, June 5, at 7:30 p.m. at a cost of $10 per card. Prizes will be up for grabs. The online bingo event can be found online at tinyurl.com/y4ymd4zk.

elcome to the weekly Kamloops Art Page. With the COVID-19 pandemic upending society — socially and economically and dominating news for the foreseeable future — we understand pandemic fatigue can set in for even the most ardent followers of current events.

While continuing to cover all pandemic and non-pandemic-related news, KTW has also worked hard at featuring positive stories from the crisis, tales that capture the essence of humanity, be it volunteers sewing thousands of masks for health-care workers or musicians offering up weekly free concerts online. This page is an attempt by KTW to bring

some colour into the lives of our readers via artwork created locally. Our goal is to use this page to showcase works by various Kamloops artists, with between one and three pieces displayed. Thanks for reading Kamloops This Week and we hope this page can help ease the stress of this uncertain era in which we are living.

THE IDEA FOR THE GRAD Mural of 2021 was to show the adventures our class accomplished and to suggest the many upcoming journeys we have yet to complete. Although our grad class had a strange final year, we were able to come together to show the importance of unity. Before the pandemic, our grad class was able to grow as individuals. We learned important skills, such as communication, teamwork, leadership and resilience. We wanted to reflect our ongoing learning and growth with the image of the path. We have finished one part of our life, but we still have many mountains to climb and many experiences to live through.

SA-HALI SECONDARY 2021 GRAD LEGACY MURAL: Artists Morgan Beatty, Rory Jakubec, Madeline Rein, Trevor Shyiak, Brenna Wassing and Emma Wilkinson.

Another important aspect of our mural is the inclusion of the Secwépemc word “tsqwtsqwetséts,” which means moving forward in life, or transitioning. This connects with our theme, but more importantly, we wanted to acknowledge we live on the ancestral lands of the Secwépemc people. Graduation will mark our final gathering before we transition into the next stage of life. While some of us will continue to live and learn close to home, many will travel or attend schools far beyond Kamloops. Regardless of the path we find ourselves on, we’ll likely never forget our years together. — Grad Legacy Mural art team

FAITH

The real legacy of the church at Pentecost

H

aving celebrated another Pentecost Sunday last month, I have been reading a book, Unbelievable: Why Neither Ancient Creeds Nor the Reformation Can Produce a Living Faith Today, authored by Episcopalian Bishop John Shelby Sponge. Sponge, a sold-out contrarian of evangelical theology and practices, has published several books depicting the doom-andgloom scenarios about the current downward, even dangerous, slides of the church, predicting its soon coming end unless it gets its house in order. My own beef against the learned writer is very simple — contrary to what many believe and how many act, the church is God’s invention, not man’s. Therefore, I can think of no one more qualified to speak on the topic of the church than its inventor, Jesus himself. The New Testament Book of Acts (especially chapter 2) is the perfect place to discover God’s intention concerning the church. It’s there that we see the church birthed. It’s there that we see the infant church begin to spread its

wings and grow to become what God had designed it to be. Sure enough, as we look at the Book of Acts, the description of the early church (Acts 2:42-47) gives us a basic outline for what God intended it to be. This column is, in essence, a report card of sorts on the church, an attempt to evaluate how we are doing as we hold and value our church up against God’s standards for what the church should be. The above passage is a basic description to understanding of God’s purpose for the church. First of all, the church, in its basic form, is invisible. Those who love Jesus Christ with all their heart and live for him constitute the true church, the body of Christ. We are invisible, in that our spiritual lives cannot be directly detected by the world. In reality, we belong to the collective body of Christ, whether we are alive or whether we are in heavenly glory. A church is primarily a gathering of “saved” people. Now, we know the saved people would bring their unsaved ones to church. But there’s no guarantee that just because a person is inside a building called

church, that they are saved. The Church is also quite visible. The world cannot detect the invisible church of real Christians. They can only see the visible church of those who profess to be Christians. I believe the Lord intended the visible church to be a testimony to the world. So, when the church gathers together, it is a testimony to the world that Christ has indeed risen and is present with it. The first local assembly, scriptures tell us, met in Jerusalem. It consisted primarily of humble people: fishermen, farmers and some well-offs. These folks had all things in common, not the normal practice by any other church in the world to follow. This form of “socialism” was practised in Jerusalem only because of tremendous number of poor people there. Acts 2:42 delineates the basic ingredient of church life. They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship. The church in Jerusalem was also quite the social life of its people. It wasn’t all business. The Jerusalem congregation began in the energy of the Holy Spirit and

continued in that. Can we imagine Christianity starting in such a small place as Jerusalem? The apostles had been told, right before Christ left the Earth, that the church was to go to the uttermost parts of the world. The most basic practice to be carried out in the church is to teach sound doctrines. That’s the reason the church gathers together. The church does not gather to feed the poor or to organize soup kitchens, though these are good outreaches. Neither is the church on the Earth to raise funds, to present programs, entertain or to give weekly devotionals. People are not to go to church to hear a pastor’s opinion, to listen to tearjerking illustrations as they play on our emotion. The priority of the church is to teach the Word of God. Many preachers water down the message of the church and the word of God because of the pressure to do so. To counteract it, Apostle Paul advised his protégé Titus: “You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.” It is sad to see today that instead of teaching the Bible and sound doctrines, preach-

ers are standing up and talking about their own stuff. That’s all the more reason why the church should teach sound doctrines and allow the Holy Spirit to do something with it in the lives of the listeners (as also in the preachers themselves). If the purity of the church is to be protected, then its leaders must be faithful to the Word of God and not just dabble in social gospels, a lot of which is good, but they not ultimately profitable. All ministers of the gospel are answerable to Christ for how faithfully they nurture and protect the flock. If they are to become spiritually mature, the flock have to be taught — and they are taught as the preachers/teachers preach from all of Scriptures (2 Tim. 2:24-25; 3:1417; 4:1-2).

Places of worship prepping for indoor services SEAN BRADY STAFF REPORTER sbrady@kamloopsthisweek.com

Some places of worship in Kamloops have begun planning or intend to hold indoor worship services following changes to the province’s guidelines, while others will continue online and outdoor services. The new guidelines, which do not apply to funerals, baptisms or weddings when they are held on their own, mean that up to 50 people can gather for an indoor worship service. Funerals and baptisms are allowed with the same limit if they are held as a part of the regular service. Participants must be spaced two metres apart, unless they are from the same household, masks must be worn, participants must pre-register and social gatherings should not occur at the venue after services. New guidelines for outdoor services have similar limits and guidelines, except that masks only

need to be worn until seated. Among the churches, which planned to return immediately, with services this past weekend were Oasis Church, First Baptist Church of Kamloops and Dallas Barnhartvale Baptist Church. The Kamloops Gurdwara Sahib (Sikh Temple) also planned on inviting people back for in-person services indoors. Gurdwara president Dalbir Singh Gill said only live-streamed services had been offered due to pandemic-related health orders prohibiting in-person indoor services. He said people will be happy to return within the limits and with precautions. “We have enough room for 50 people and we can have the safe distance and everything,” Gill said. But not all places of worship are planning an immediate return. Some are thriving on their previously adapted services, though still not operating near full capacity. Summit Drive Church lead pastor David Fields told KTW the

church will continue its current operations, which include a variety of outdoor services and an indoor kids’ ministry, for at least a few more weeks. “We can host more people with the outdoor service, and our kids’ ministry is a real priority, and they’re well set up to do their stuff inside the building,” he said, noting services for children have been allowed to continue indoors. Fields said pre-pandemic, the church would see between 600 and 650 people between its three Sunday services. Currently, the church is accommodating an average of about 250 people with the walk-in option held on the church’s lawn and the drivein option, during which 50 vehicles can be accommodated “and however many people the seat belts can hold,” Fields said, noting the church’s live streams also still get views in the hundreds each week. “We’re not in a rush to get back inside the building. We’re going to assess that over the next month.”

Campbell ready for Lions’ camp MARTY HASTINGS

STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The B.C. Lions hired Rick Campbell in December of 2019. Campbell, head coach and co-general manager of the CFL club, spoke to KTW on the weekend, covering a wide range of topics ahead of his first training camp with the team. Camp is likely to begin on July 10 at Hillside Stadium. Below is the question-andanswer session with Campbell. It has been edited for length. More of the interview can be seen on today’s (June 2) episode of Kamloops Last Week, this newspaper’s weekly video podcast, which can be found on YouTube.

B.C. LIONS PHOTO Head coach Rick Campbell and the B.C. Lions are in for a piping-hot July training camp in Kamloops.

KTW: It’s been three years since the Lions have had a playoff game. They haven’t had a winning record since 2016. How important is it to get into the playoffs in Year 1 and put this club back on a winning path? Rick Campbell: That’s what we are in it for. I hope we all have the attitude of you go into every year going in to win the Grey Cup. The West Division is very competitive. But I see no reason, with the players we have and the coaches we have and the support we have, that we can’t throw our hat in the ring and be competitive right away.

and he can remember the old days and your dad [former Edmonton Eskimos’ head coach Hugh Campbell], and he didn’t exactly like your dad. He might have been Public Enemy No. 1 in B.C. for football fans. What’s it like coming full circle and becoming head coach of the Lions and having that history? RC: The good news about people not liking people in sports and rivalries is it means the teams were good, and that’s all good stuff for me. I respect the past and the history and I know it real well. I’m a CFL lifer, so to speak, but I’m making my own way and doing my own thing and I’m excited to be a part of the Lions.

KTW: My boss (KTW editor Chris Foulds) is a huge Lions’ fan. He’s getting a little older

KTW: What’s your relationship like with Mike Reilly? RC: I’ve known Mike Reilly

OUR TIME IS NOW – JOIN US

for a while. We’re both from the state of Washington. I’ve never worked with him, though, directly. I’m excited that I get that opportunity. I think he’s a genuine person, a good guy. Obviously, he’s a good quarterback, but part of being a good quarterback is being able to relate to the people on the team. He does a really good job of that. KTW: A lot of people in this province are excited about another quarterback on the roster, Nathan Rourke [of Victoria]. Will we get to see Nathan Rourke this season? RC: I really like Nathan. He was in the previous year’s draft and we drafted him high for a reason. He’s going to be able to come in and compete right away, so we’ll see what he’s got.

KTW: An XFL merger, if that was to happen, what’s your stance on the rules of the game and how the game should be played? RC: There is even a lot of stuff happening in the NFL right now that wouldn’t have happened 15, 20 years ago, like small, fast receivers and athletic quarterbacks. Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson aren’t playing in the NFL 15, 20 years ago. They’re playing in the CFL. It just shows you the CFL has had a huge influence on football and it’s been the exciting part of football, which is an open game with fast players that can make plays. I sure hope that whatever happens with that, a ton of CFL concepts are in there, not only for tradition, but also because I think it makes the product exciting.

KTW: You mention down south in the NFL. There has been some divisiveness that has resulted from vaccinations and team stances. Is there a team stance on vaccinations and is that something you’re concerned about? RC: I don’t think it’s going to be a divisive issue. We’ve actually had a couple seminars with our players. I think it’s up to each individual, but we tell the guys that are hesitant about it or have concerns to make sure you do all the homework — medical advice, doctors — and really get good information, so you can make a proper decision for yourself. We’re not going to mandate it on anyone. But I sure hope people do all the homework they can do. If you’re going to be in the business of pro sports, with large groups of people and travelling, it sure looks like vaccines are going to help that cause. KTW: We’ll end with a softball. BClions.com tells me you’ve done the Grouse Grind a few times and you enjoy checking out local breweries, as well. Have you had a chance to learn about the hiking trails here in Kamloops? They’re world class, and I think we have five breweries, along with wineries and distilleries. Any chance during the small amount of off-time you have, you might check some of that out? RC: I will definitely do it. I’d like some advice. I’m an outdoors type of guy, so always up for a beer and a hike, usually the hike before the beer. I definitely want to check that out.

Jenn Jackson’s trust in Catharine Pendrel, Keith Wilson and the Kamloops mountain biking community is paying off on the World Cup circuit. The 26-year-old Barrie, Ont., product moved last spring to the Tournament Capital, eager to learn under Olympic bronze medallist Pendrel and Wilson, who is Pendrel’s coach and husband. “I was in a bit of a slump last spring, so when this idea to move west struck me it was more of a ‘why not?’ decision,” said Jackson, who works as a mechanic at Spoke Bike and Ski. “I think the riding in Kamloops, the terrain and variety of trails has really enhanced my confidence and comfort jumping onto World Cup tracks here in Europe.” Jackson, whose first full

ANDY VATHIS PHOTO Jenn Jackson smiling on a muddy day in May at a World Cup mountain biking event in Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic.

cross-country Olympic women’s elite World Cup season came in 2019, posted the best result of her World Cup career on May 16 in Nové Mesto na Morave, Czech Republic, finishing 26th. She placed 38th at the first stop on the 2021 World Cup circuit on May 9 in Albstadt, Germany. Pendrel is a six-time national champion, two-time

world champion. three-time overall World Cup champion, Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Pan Am Games silver medallist. “Being around someone who has been to the very top of the sport and had an entire career there is mind blowing, but also somehow normalizes having ambitions to be a world-class cyclist, which I’ve struggled to

feel justified in myself,” Jackson said. Pendrel, who is working back to form after giving birth to daughter Dara on Jan. 26, placed 23rd on May 16 in the Czech Republic and 52nd on May 9 in Germany. The 40-year-old rider’s results were good enough to seal her position for Team Canada at the postponed 2020 Olympic Summer Games, which are scheduled to run this year in Tokyo, from July 23 to Aug. 8. The event will mark Pendrel’s fourth Olympic Games. “In training, I log way more vertical metres than I did back home,” Jackson said. “On some of the first rides I did here last spring, I nearly expired trying to keep up with Catharine and Keith on the climbs. Now, if I’m having a good day, sometimes I try to repay the favour.” Pendrel and Jackson are in Leogang, Austria, preparing for World Cup and European series races, the next of which is the

third of six stops on the World Cup circuit, with the event slated to run from June 11 to June 13 in Leogang. This year, Jackson has her eyes on a top-20 World Cup finish and winning the Canadian national championship, which is scheduled for October in Baie Saint Paul, Que. Recent results have Jackson in good standing to compete at the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, which will run from Aug. 25 to Aug. 29 in Val di Sole, Italy. Reaching the World Cup podium and qualifying for the Olympics are among longerterm goals. “In sport, we often say it takes a village to support an athlete on their way to the top and I really can’t express how fortunate I feel to have their mentorship, perspective and friendship, along with the rest of the cycling community I’ve grown to know through working at Spoke,” Jackson said.

Heard it through the grapevine, but is it true?

I

was at the boat launch at Pass Lake near Kamloops with a friend a couple of weeks ago. We were unloading my boat when a truck rolled through. A fellow hopped out to have a look. We chatted. “The lake totally winterkilled this year, you know,” he said, just before leaving. “Completely dead.” My friend and I looked at each other with dismay. That would explain why there were no other trucks in the parking area, we thought. Pass Lake is a very popular fishing lake and it is rare to see the lake empty of anglers, especially in May, when the season is peak. They all must have heard. My friend sent a text message to an experienced angler we both trust. Yep, totally dead, our trusted friend confirmed. My friend and I started conjuring a Plan B. Where else could we go that was nearby? No point in fishing a dead lake. Just then, we heard a splash in the water 40 yards off the shore and looked to see the ripples left by a jumping fish. Completely dead? Hmmm. We decided to give the lake a try. Within 20 minutes, my friend hooked a bright, silver four-pound rainbow on a small leech. Several minutes later, I caught one almost the same size. Through the rest of the day, we hooked several more 12- to 20-inch fat silver trout in a lake that had supposedly died through the winter because of lack of oxygen.

ROBERT KOOPMANS The Outdoor

NARRATIVE It wasn’t easy fishing. The fish were hard to tempt despite an abundant hatch of chironomids, but the fact is, we caught fish. I’ve had far worse days of fishing in lakes stuffed with trout, so catching the fish we did in a lake that was reportedly dead amounted to a significant victory. Not a bad day. The experience made me realize how closely anglers follow the fishing grapevine. It’s a powerful social network that anglers trust almost blindly. The mere mention from a fellow angler that Pass Lake was dead was enough to have us preparing to move, with no further evidence required. It was said, it must be true. Even the appearance of the jumping trout almost was not enough. Had my boat still been on the top of my Jeep, I’m sure we would have chalked that splash up to a fluke and moved somewhere else.

It is not hard to find other examples of the grapevine in action. A week or so ago, I got a tip that Roche Lake was “red-hot.” Epic fishing to be found. Wow. That’s the kind of tip anglers live for. I loaded the boat and headed up on a Sunday morning. I was a bit late to get going and when I arrived, I found the parking area around the boat launch so crammed with trucks and trailers that there was barely room to turn around. I’ve never seen the lake so busy. I don’t doubt the grapevine had been humming hard about Roche Lake for a few days and everyone with interest in fishing had likely heard about it. I left the lake for other destinations. That kind of close-quarters fishing isn’t something I particularly enjoy. I didn’t

find out if Roche Lake was truly red-hot or not. Of course, there is nothing inherently wrong with anglers sharing information to or acting on the buzz from the fishing grapevine. Getting helpful information from others who share our interests is a great way to preserve resources. No one wants to waste truck gas and good fishing hours for no reason. But there is a risk in letting the grapevine make all our decisions for us or sharing too much. For starters, it concentrates anglers in an astounding fashion. Roche Lake was a prime example. Roche is the kind of lake that seems to withstand heavy pressure, but not all lakes are similar. Smaller lakes that see a heavy influx of people in a short period will likely suffer. Even catch-and-

release fishing still kills fish. As well — and perhaps most importantly — we lose the self-satisfaction that comes from figuring out for ourselves where the good fishing might be. When you use the grapevine as your only tool for location decision-making, you are always indebted to someone else. In contrast, it’s incredibly satisfying to pick a lake you have heard nothing about, go there at a time when you think it might be good to fish and catch trout. If you do so, there is also a good chance you will share the lake with just a few other people, or maybe no one else at all. Will you rush to share your newfound secret with others, perhaps putting at risk a fishing experience likely made better by the lack of pressure? Well, I guess that’s up to you. I know I don’t mind passing on that Pass Lake has fish in it, despite reports of a complete winterkill. It’s a lake that can handle the attention. I’ve found a couple of other lakes this spring, however, that I intend to keep to myself. They are small lakes and the fishing was darned good. Sorry, folks, there is only so much I am prepared to share.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

You feel most comfortable when things are organized, Aries. However, flexibility is handy as well, and sometimes things may not be in order as much as you like. Adapting is key.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, once you get into a groove, you will find that many of your tasks are much easier to manage. Keep plugging and you’ll hit your stride soon enough.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes it may seem like the smallest issue is suddenly a major mountain that you must scale. Change your approach and you’ll soon realize you can handle anything.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

LIBRA

Many things may come to you more easily than usual, Cancer. Ride this wave of ease that has fallen into your lap. Enjoy the break that comes with it as well.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

JUNE 2 - JUNE 8, 2021 - Sept 23/Oct 23

Libra, don’t focus too much on emotions this week. Instead, put all of your energy into intellectual musings, which will help you complete a project in the days ahead.

SCORPIO

You can get far with minimal effort this week, Leo. Simply set your sights on an end goal, and before you know it you will reach that destination.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

- Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, even with the frenzy of activity around you, try not to be overwhelmed by the situation. Your first reaction may be to fly off the handle. Keep it together.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Virgo, check your messages frequently this week, as someone needs to get in touch with you. He or she may have some news that can change your course.

Consider calling up an old friend or a former romantic partner who has the potential to stir up some passion inside of you, Sagittarius. More excitement is on the horizon.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan20 Capricorn, this is one of those weeks when you get sidetracked at seemingly every turn, Capricorn. Don’t be too hard on yourself about the delays.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, embrace some difficult tasks this week. These projects will make you appreciate the value of hard work and put simpler tasks in perspective.

PISCES

- Feb 19/Mar 20

This is your week to make short work of chores, Pisces. You may be lacking patience, but everything will get done, especially if you ask for help.

Reginald Glenn Pointer Reginald (Reg) Pointer of Kamloops, BC passed away peacefully on May 20, 2021, with Tracey by his side. He is survived by his loving wife Tracey, sons David, Shawn and Clifford (Francine). He also leaves his sister Yvonne Duke (Joe) to cherish his memory. He is predeceased by parents Herbert and Maude Pointer, sister Peggy McEwan, brother Bert and daughter Charmaine.

In our 35 years together, I came to understand everything about you. It’s been 2 years since you have moved on to whatever comes next and I think I understand you better, thanks for staying in touch. I worry about stuff, way more than I used too, I worried that if it works you have contact with other people that passed you may have contact with the one that gave you scares that last a lifetime, then I thought if you have contact with him you would also have contact with the ones that loved you and would stand beside you, Bobby Lowe, Tom Watson, Garry Dumma, Rene Perry, Dad McDougall and Ian McDougall (you never met Ian but I know he would find a way to be by your side). You have a good circle. In the note you left me to find after you passed you wrote that God put me in front of you, I’m not much for cosmic destiny but maybe in this case you were right and things unfolded as they were meant to, it gives me some peace.

We thought of you with love today But that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday And the days before that too, We think of you in silence We often speak your name All we have are memories And your picture in a frame Your memory is our keepsake With which we’ll never part God has you in His keeping We have you in our hearts

I miss you

Love always, Terry’s family

Never afraid of hard work, Reg worked a myriad of jobs at the Post Office, steel mill, dry cleaners, driving delivery vans and even slinging beer at the Regina Legion in between jobs. He was happiest when he was driving bus and worked several seasons with Greyhound Bus Lines in Regina and Cache Creek. He also worked for any bus company that would hire him and spent several winters bussing junior hockey teams around Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The family moved to BC in 1967, where Reg continued to work for Greyhound out of Cache Creek. In 1971 he worked for a spell as a transit driver for BC Hydro in Vancouver and in 1973 joined the Workers’ Compensation Board in Richmond as a driver and attendant at the Rehabilitation Centre. There he met Tracey in 1979 and in 1981, they moved to Kamloops and married in September. He immediately was hired by the School District to drive school bus and finished his career as a janitor at South Sahali Elementary School in 1996. Reg was a very talented man; singing with the men’s barbershop chorus and Happy Choristers and acting in several plays and musicals in town. He also painted, and everyone who knew him knew how much he loved to dance. Tracey and Reg were lucky enough to travel extensively, taking seven months to travel across Canada and down to the southern US in their RV in 2000-2001. They also travelled to Cuba, Europe and Australia and returned to England several times as both have English roots. In December 2016, Reg suffered a stroke and other medical complications and descended into vascular dementia. He was home for almost three years, but in May 2019, was moved to Ponderosa Lodge, where he received outstanding care and was loved by the wonderful staff. Tracey would like to thank Dr. Robert Thomasse, The Alzheimer’s Society of Kamloops and the nurses and caregivers at Ponderosa Lodge for the excellent and loving care he received.

Reg was born February 6, 1932 in tiny Maxstone, Saskatchewan in the middle of a prairie winter. Growing up, he and his family lived in several small towns in southern Saskatchewan. He did a stint in the Air Force in Saskatoon and, later, settled in Regina where he married and raised a family.

No service or plans have been made due to COVID restrictions. There will be a celebration of his life at a later date.

Love your family.

On a personal note, even though dementia ravaged his brain and body, I am grateful that he was unaware of the demise of Greyhound Bus Lines in Canada. That would have broken his heart. Condolences may be expressed to the family from www.myalternatives.ca

Duane Nathanael Torgunrud

February 2, 1935 - May 19, 2021

The human dynamo known as Diane Schmidt ended her amazing run on May 19, 2021. Born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan on December 22, 1938, Mom was the first of what would become seven children. She likely started her role as a mother figure at the ripe age of 10.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Duane was born in Maxim, Saskatchewan. He passed at the age of 86 in Kamloops, BC. He has five surviving siblings.

Mom met Dad while working at Fraser Vale food processing in Chilliwack and they married on December 1, 1961. They quickly started a family and enjoyed all the pleasures of raising kids surrounded by their hometown friends and relatives. In 1973 Mom and Dad loaded their four kids into the family station wagon and moved to Kamloops. She carried on her role as head delegator of the very busy household, making sure beds were made, socks were folded, and shag carpets were raked.

Duane had several pursuits in life. These included goaltending for minor hockey teams and refereeing for the Major Junior Hockey League. He worked at the Psychiatric Training School as a nurse and transport driver where he also met his love and future wife Doreen. They went on to have five children of their own - Terry, Debra, Rhonda, Kelly and Deanne, all surviving. The family relocated to BC in 1969. He worked at the Gulf/PetroCan Oil refinery in Port Moody as a Master Operator up until his full retirement. He was a born leader and mentor.

It didn’t matter where or when the game, event, pageant or recital was, if one of Mom’s children, grandchildren or greatgrandchildren was involved, she would be in the crowd. She attended hundreds, maybe thousands of them quietly sitting with a big smile on her face. Well, not always quietly... If the politician was getting a little long winded at the grad ceremony her, “Oh put a sock in it!” could usually be heard by all the people around us in the crowd. Her preferred method of deep communication was in writing; her penmanship was impeccable. Every Christmas, each member of the family would get a touching hand written note in a specially made cross stitched mini-stocking and the day would start with hugs and tears of love. She started making and wrapping Christmas presents about February of each year, an absolute gift giving machine. Her hands were always busy. It’s hard to imagine anyone producing more ceramics, dishcloths, cross-stitches, clothes (doll and human), knitting, and crocheting in a lifetime. Predeceased by her parents, brothers Jack and Vern, and infant son David. Mom is survived by her rock, her loving husband Vic who was by her side for 60 years. Daughters Darlene (Curtis), Leane (Chris) and Leona (Todd), son Gord (Cheryl), and niece Sue (Bob) who was more like a daughter, her team of grandkids Calvin (Brandy), Carly, Katryna, Tiffany, Alex, Ally, Tyson (Breann) and Kestra. The cherry on top of mom’s life was being part of the first 7 years of her greatgrandkids, Isla and Nick’s lives. She also leaves siblings Pat, Victor, Marwayne, and Maureen. She had a soft spot for small underfunded cemeteries so in lieu of flowers, you can help out one that is special to you or go visit and clean up the grave marker of a loved one.

You will be so missed Gma. Our lives have been so enriched by your unique way of attacking life. To say you were stubborn is an understatement, but it was your greatest strength. Wherever you are, go easy on everyone. Get baby David back in your arms, and we will all be together again soon. We know you’re telling us, “I are okay now.”

THERE’S MORE ONLINE

Duane also leaves behind his children’s spouses, eleven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was actively involved in his family’s hobbies and sports throughout his life, coaching and cheering. He remained active in his Lutheran Christian faith and delivered many church sermons over the years, a natural at public speaking. His undeniable greatest passion was always hockey, last holding seasons tickets to the Kamloops Blazers Junior hockey team since retiring in Kamloops in 1993. To commemorate the teams Memorial Cup championship the next 2 years and each hockey season thereafter Duane made Souvenir Blazer Button Boards on display at the Sandman Centre arena for all to view and enjoy. Duane always had a cheerful disposition and a reassuring heartfelt hug or hand to offer. He touched many lives along life’s journey, a true inspiration. He was content with everything and everyone in his life. He will forever be a shining star in the heavens above. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). ... The family will hold a private celebration of life at a later date. Donations if desired can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation. Condolences to family can be made a DrakeCremation.com

Ask DRAKE Drake Smith, MSW Funeral Director Every Wednesday in KTW! Q. Can part of Murray go back to Scotland? A. Some countries are more open to this than others. It’s best to check with the consulate if you’re not sure. I’ve heard from many people who have taken an urn or a keepsake to another country without incident. But I’d check to make sure.

Eleanor Ann Ramage 1926 - 2021

Mom’s big heart gave out on May 24, 2021 Queen Victoria’s birthday, in her 95th year. She had always said that she wanted to live to be a 100 years old. Mom loved life, her kith & kin and her nursing profession. Known to many as Nonie, she was born at the Royal Inland Hospital in August 1926 the day the Opera House burnt down in Kamloops. Her father owned a garage being the first mechanic to bring wheel alignments into the interior of the province and her mother worked for years at the Museum & Archives. Her maternal grandparents, Blake Stokes and Eleanor Daykin ran a jewelry & watch repair shop in Kamloops after moving here from Armstrong. Her parental grandparents, Alexander Gordon and Jean Dalgarno were Apple Ranchers in Vernon who had immigrated from Scotland. She attended Lloyd George Elementary School and graduated from Kam High. She began Nursing training on the same day that her younger brother Blake started Grade 1. She was the top honour graduate of the RIH School of Nursing and obtained further studies in Mental Health at Essondale as a Registered Nurse. After graduation, she worked “Specials” -- accompanying patients by train to Vancouver for treatment. Her and a fellow graduate headed off on a great adventure to Portland, Oregon and worked at the hospital and later in a doctor’s office. She came home to marry Steve in 1950 at the Kamloops United Church. Together they were married for 52 years. She nursed at the Royal Inland Hospital for over 45 years as well as at Ponderosa Lodge. She always worked as the Night Supervisor while raising five children at home. And always the caregiver, she cared for her husband, mother and aunt for many years. She was an avid knitter and she loved to sew to share her love with others. All of her birthday Angel Food cakes will long be remembered. She loved the flowers in her garden and especially the wild daisies near their cabin at East Barriere Lake. Over the years, she had six replacement surgeries, hips, shoulders, and knees. She said that this was a sign of an old nurse. At age 75 she learned to operate a computer and was on-line with her family. Her grandchildren named her Gma - high tech Gma. She so enjoyed her fun Red Hat days with an Alaskan Cruise and a trip to the Price is Right and more. She loved to travel and enjoyed trips throughout Canada, Scotland, China, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Hawaii and the United States. She was a lifetime member of the Kamloops United Church and she worked at the Action Desk for ten years before the move from her apartment in August 2013. Special thanks to the Active Care Seniors Services for their home style assisted living for three years - her home away from home. In addition, to the Interior Health Care workers for their home-in care at Active Care. Thank you to Ridgeview Lodge for their 24 hour care that she required after hospitalization in 2016, as she simply had ‘forgotten how to walk’. You know who you are and how you assisted mother; many above the call of duty -- “do small things with great love”. Our gratitude to Navy Sahota, Nurse Practitioner, for her professional, respectful and compassionate care. There is no service by request. If you wish, kindly donate to the Alzheimer’s Walk for Memories that Mom walked, with her walker, in May 2016. “Crash-Bang!” (The nickname she gave herself). Her ashes will be placed in the Gateway Gardens (Circle of Friends) at the Hillside Cemetery where her family members are buried. She is survived by her children Rod (Bonnie), Bill, Ann (Philip), Mary, Pamela (Allan). Foster daughter Dianne de Yaeger. Grandchildren Doug, Keith, Stephanie, Adam (Meena), Ashley, Jasmine, Stephen, Blake and Lily, great-grandchildren Caiden, Bailey, Cub, Hollis, Alexa, Isabelle, Iyla, Nalina and Sohana Eleanor. Her dear brother Blake (Edith) of Calgary, niece Bernice and nephew Ian. Also, nephew Norman and nieces Beverly, Teresa and Linda. She was predeceased by her husband Steve and her parents Bill and Jean (Stokes) Gordon and her dear Aunt Joyce of Joyce’s Millinery. “I ask for everyone who knew me to take a moment today to remember me; then go and tell your family and friends how much you love them and what they mean to you. Sometimes you have to let one story end so another can begin. Forget me not! Look for me in the flowers! Fare thee well love ... ?

Each Loss Each loss is very different, The pain is so severe. Will I ever stop missing This one I loved so dear? Good times we had together, The moments that we shared We didn’t have to tell each other How much we really cared. I never dreamed you’d go away, Never thought of sorrow. So sure you’d always be here Took for granted each tomorrow. Now my life is all confused Since you went away. You took a part of me And for help I daily pray. But when God sent you to me He never said that you were mine, That I could keep you always – Only borrowed for a time. Now, He’s called you home, I’m sad and I shed tears. Yet I’m glad He loaned you to me And we had these many years.

Dave was born at Cherry Creek Ranch and spent his entire life in Kamloops. He met Heather in 1961 and married her in 1962; they spent the majority of their life living in the house they built in Knutsford.

Ada Clare Bentley (née Lamont) It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ada Clare Bentley, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, at the age of 87, on April 24, 2021. Ada is predeceased by her husband, Harvey Bentley, and will be greatly missed by her surviving sister Eileen Abrams, her children and respective spouses Dan & Cindy, Pat & Brian, Keith & Patti, numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends. Born July 16, 1933, in Red Deer, Alberta, Ada spent her early years on the prairies before moving to the Lower Mainland and graduating from Maple Ridge High School in Haney, BC. Immediately after graduation, Ada joined the Canadian Air Force in 1951 to become a radar technician. Ada and Harvey exchanged many letters back and forth while she was stationed in Trenton, Ontario, and then Bagotville, Quebec. She learned how to be a radar technician while in the Air Force and was often engaged in teaching others those same skills as she was a quick learner and extremely good at instructing others. She greatly enjoyed her time in the Air Force and had fond memories of the friends she made while there. In 1954, Ada sought discharge from the Air Force so she and Harvey could get married. They married on July 16, 1954. Throughout her life, Ada was her husband’s willing partner as they moved from logging to ranching to grain farming and on to commercial fishing, while also pursuing her own interests and hobbies. The independence and thirst for knowledge she displayed while in the Air Force made her a force to be reckoned with. Ada never complained, faced every challenge with courage, sass, and wit, and exhibited a quiet strength that made her easy to talk to. After marriage, Ada and Harvey lived on the Bentley familyrun logging camp on Frederick’s Arm where Ada learned to cook for the camp. A favourite story of Harvey’s is when Ada was at the camp and getting a little tired of not just the cooking, but the cleanup afterwards, she complained about doing the dishes. He said “Just throw them out the window. That will take care of cleanup.” After the dinner, as Harvey was walking past the kitchen window, the dishes started flying past him. That certainly took care of cleanup in record time! It was at the camp that Harvey and Ada started their family. When it was time for the children to attend school, they moved the family to Quadra Island while Harvey continued to travel by seaplane and boat to and from the logging camp. It was during this period that Ada and Harvey decided it was time to try something new with their young family. Harvey and Ada sold the logging camp and decided to move the family to the interior. They had visited during their honeymoon road trip and really liked the area, so it was their first choice when deciding where to put down new roots. They bought the Connor Cattle Ranch just outside of Heffley Creek and remained there for many years. Ada was a busy partner in the ranching life. She and Harvey hosted many meetings of the 4-H cattle club, and they were also involved with other community volunteering. She was always willing to lend a hand and kept everyone well-fed while doing so. Her chocolate cake was YUMMY, split pea soup was EXCELLENT, and her cinnamon buns were OUT OF THIS WORLD.

May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of despair

The family relocated to Ohaton, Alberta, to take a turn at grain farming. After a few years in Alberta, Harvey and Ada semi-retired and moved back to their place near Heffley, as Ada was missing the area. Harvey built a house on their land on the spot that Ada picked for the wonderful panoramic view. It wasn’t too long before Ada and Harvey decided they would embark on a new adventure and became commercial fishermen. They spent their time fishing for salmon up and down the west coast and meeting up with their friends on the water when they could. Ada was involved in all tasks and chores of commercial fishing and was always willing to fix the radar when Harvey couldn’t. Even though they both loved being on the water and fishing, they eventually decided that it was time for a full retirement. Through the years Ada and Harvey took time out from work to travel. They loved exploring and travelled from the west coast to the east coast of North America, Tuktoyaktuk, Canada, in the north to Caracas, Venezuela, and everywhere in between. Ada was involved in community volunteer work, was an active member in a quilting club, and a member of the WI. Through the years she created many quilts and helped care for her children and grandchildren. She was an avid reader and was particularly fond of a good murder mystery. Ada also enjoyed music. She often attended concerts by the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra with her sister Isabelle, and she also liked to listen to her favourite artists Anne Murray, The Irish Rovers, and K.D. Lang. After retirement, Ada and Harvey spent many enjoyable years on their ranch with their children and grandchildren often visiting. There are many great stories of visits with Momma and Papa through the years. Once family left, things would return to the normal unhurried pace of everyday life. Ada never tired of looking out through the large picture windows, enjoying the scenic landscape and wildlife, and particularly loved watching the hummingbirds in the summer. Ada is predeceased by her husband, Harvey; her parents, Sarah and John Lamont; her siblings Ethel Lamont, Isabel Cameron, Olive Flegal, Sadie Berquist, and John Lamont. Ada will be greatly missed by her family and friends, but we will cherish the many memories we have as she will constantly be in our thoughts. If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions can be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

David John Mathers It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our Dad, David John Mathers, at the age of 70. David passed away suddenly on May 20, 2021, while living his best life, having coffee in the morning sunshine, then tinkering in his yard in the afternoon. David was born in Abbotsford on August 8, 1950. Throughout his early life, David moved around a lot throughout British Columbia and Alberta, making lifelong friends along the way. In 1975, David settled down in Kamloops, BC, finally having found his home. David was a power line technician for BC Hydro, travelling throughout the province repairing and maintaining high voltage power lines and much more. He spent a lot of time working in the North Valley and in Northern BC. When David was not working, he was an avid adventurer, and enjoyed camping and fishing and exploring throughout Canada. During his lifetime, David planned many foreign adventures and explored many places in our world and was happiest exploring different cities and villages and going off the beaten path. David leaves behind his loving family and many friends. David thoroughly loved his grandchildren and shared his life experience and wisdom with them over the years and could not wait to share in their adventures as they got older. Dad, we hope your next adventure is as amazing as the ones you had during your lifetime. The family is planning on having a Celebration of Life in Kamloops and a graveside service at Valleyview Memorial Gardens once restrictions have eased. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please consider making a donation to BC Children’s Hospital or the Canadian Cancer Society in David’s name. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.com

Mom would have been 80 yesterday. Instead, with sadness we share the passing of Alice H. Hughes, November 5, 2020. Born in Vancouver June 1, 1941 to Henry and Martha Friesen. Alice is predeceased by her husband of 56 years Dave Hughes, sister Pat and brother Dennis. Left to mourn Alice’s passing are her children; David (Cindy), Sandi (Paulo) Ekkebus, Dan (Bonnie), Sharon (Tristian) Hosier along with Alice’s cherished nine grandchildren; Christy (Tommy), Koby (Chad), Courtney, Bram, Chloe, Kenzie, Jordan (Eddie), Kiera (Evan), Lindsay (Jared) and great-grandchildren; Preslee, Taysom, Honor, Axel, Stone, Emory, Archer, Imogen, Uriah and the three mom missed; Everett and twins Audrey and Juniper. After graduating high school at age 15, Alice moved to Kamloops in 1957 and worked for the Kamloops Sentinel before marrying Dave. Alice was gracious and kind, known for always having her door open, her coffee pot on and a meal for visiting friends and family. A member of the Evangelical Free Church for over 60 years, Alice loved the Lord and served in numerous capacities within the church. She also worked for the Hudson Bay for 25 years. Mom did all things well! She loved to travel and was a ferocious reader right to the end. After a truly courageous 10-year battle with multiple-myeloma Alice is united with her Saviour, the source of her strength and peace. Left behind are Alice’s extensive family including siblings; Marti, Mimi (Dan), Sonny (Anne), (John & Mandy), Dennis’ wife Debbie, Terry (Anne), Peter, Kenny (Arlene), Charmaine (Matthew), Elizabeth (Jim). Alice treasured her friends as family. You know your names. She loved you dearly. Alice lived a life of gratitude. On Alice’s behalf, we thank all those involved in caring for her; Dr. Gabriel and Cancer Unit staff, Dr. Huang, HandyDART personnel, Alice’s dear neighbours of 43+ years and the kindness and care from Christ Community Church.

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, The more of everything you share, The more you’ll always have to spare, The more you love,     That life is good, And friends are kind, For only what we give away, Enriches us from day to day.
