A celebration of culture and heritage The first newcomers to our region were fur traders who established forts at Kamloops in 1812. On August 25 at Riverside Park, the heart of our community, our townspeople and visitors will come together to celebrate the Bi-Centennial of Kamloops with a theme of “2 Rivers, 2 Peoples, 200 years”. A canoe rendezvous with City Council and Tk’emlúps Council will highlight this anniversary. Naturally, this is a timely reason to explore and be mindful of the story of the Secwepemc Peoples,

their traditional culture and their word Tk’emlups, meaning where experiences following contact the rivers meet. For centuries, with non-natives 200 years ago. this has been the home of the The Shuswap or Secwepemc Tk’emlupsemc, people of the conpeople occupy a vast territory of fluence. Tk’emlups te Secwepemc, forthe interior of British Columbia. The word Shuswap is an English merly known as Kamloops Indian version of Secwepemc. This tra- Band land base was established in ditional territory stretches from 1862. It is located east of the North the Columbia River valley along Thompson River and north of the the Rocky Mountains, west to South Thompson River, adjacent the Fraser River, and south to the to the City of Kamloops. RSOE - fr ear jan 25 2012.indd 1 Today there are more than 1,000 Arrow Lakes. Most Secwepemc members living on and off the people live in the river valleys. The word “Kamloops” is the reserve. The 33,000-acre reserve English translation of the Shuswap supports a variety of uses includ-

ing residential, industrial, commercial and agricultural, resource development and other economic opportunities. Tk’emlups manages the operation of the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park, a native Post-Secondary Education Institute, the Sk’elep School of Excellence and the Tk’emlups Gas Bar. They have also re-established the annual Shuswap Gathering The Kamloopa Pow Wow - where traditional cultural activities are expressed in songs, dances, food, sharing and prayer. – continued on page 2

Immerse yourself in the rich culture and history of the Shuswap People at the Secwepemc Heritage Park, a 12-acre Native Heritage Park with more than a kilometer of trails, located on the north bank of the South Thompson River.

A healthy pregnancy is just a phone call away For pregnant women in several Interior Health communities, information, resources and services to get the best start for mom and baby are just a quick phone call away. Interior Health has announced the launch of its prenatal registry service on August 14 in the communities of Cranbrook/ Kimberley, Nelson/ Castlegar/ Trail, Central Okanagan, Vernon, Kamloops and Williams Lake/ Cariboo Chilcotin. “Making it easy to get answers to questions that women may have while pregnant will help moms and babies get a healthy start to life,” said Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. “I look forward to seeing the pilot service expand to all Interior Health communities in the near future so all pregnant women can use the phone line to get information on services and supports available to them.” The prenatal registry is a toll-free confidential phone line (1-855-868-7710) that women can call

All Peoples heritage – continued from page 1 “Everyone come together to help one another” is the vision statement of the The Secwepemc Cultural Education Society, a non profit organization formed in 1983 with a mandate to preserve, record, perpetuate, and enhance the Secwepemc language, history and culture. Visitors and locals have the opportunity to experience this living, thriving culture and history firsthand at the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park, 355 Yellowhead Highway, just east of the Kamloopa Pow-Wow grounds. The Secwepemc Museum’s collection of historical photographs, illustrations and artifacts are complimented by a 12-acre Native Heritage Park. More than a kilometer of trails, located on the banks of the South Thompson River, lead visitors through the archaeological remains of a 2000-year old Secwepemc winter village site, four reconstructed winter pit houses and a summer village. A hunting lean-to, fish drying rack, fish trap and smoke house are among other sights. The Secwepemc Ethnobotanical Gardens in the Heritage Park represent the ecosystem found within the Secwepemc Territory. Interpretive signs located at each garden describe the ecosystem in which the plants grow naturally. Take some time to explore the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park. Through this sharing of cultural history, an awareness, understanding and respect are promoted. This is a kind of celebration that honours all people’s heritage. Jody Tippett

to register for the birth of their babies, ask questions and get valuable information about services available to support a healthy pregnancy. “Not all pregnant women have the same needs. Some may be calling to sign up for prenatal classes, others may have questions about healthy eating and some may just want to know what supports are available in their communities,” said Anne Clarotto, Promotion and Prevention

Program Director with Interior Health. “Instead of calling a few places to get this information they can now call one number. It’s like a one-stop shop for a healthy pregnancy.” The prenatal registry will operate from 10am to 3pm from Tuesday through Friday. The service is available for all pregnant women in the pilot communities. For more information: www.interiorhealth.ca/prenatalregistry.

ray the pan flute man!

Recently, our roving crackerjack reporter came across the interesting talent of Ray Davies playing a pan flute outside of Harmony United Music on Tranquille Road.

Ray gets his pan flutes from Hawaii and sells them in Harmony United Music. For more information, visit Panflute music/ and flutes on facebook.

Gardengate hosts its 9th Annual Summer Salsa Challenge! On Thursday, August 16, Gardengate celebrated 13 years of “Growing Food, Growing Futures” during its 9th Annual Summer Salsa Challenge! Past and present participants, volunteers and staff were joined by local community service providers and Kamloops residents to celebrate over a decade of hard work and friendship. Gardengate was formed in 1999 to address two issues: food security and opportunities for persons with mental health issues. It is managed by Open Door Group in co-operation with the Kamloops Food Policy Council. With support from local businesses, volunteers and the Interior Health Authority, the Gardengate site was established in Brocklehurst and programming began in 2001. Its mission is “growing food and futures through diverse and supportive programs for persons with disabilities while contributing to the health and wellness of our community.” In order to fulfill its mission of contributing to the health of the community, Gardengate has donated over 180,000lbs of organic produce to local charities in the past 13 years. Today, the 2.8 acre site features rows of organic

produce, a greenhouse, orchard, classroom, kitchen and cold storage. Each morning, Gardengate teams with activity as participants living with mental health issues work alongside staff and community volunteers to tend to the garden’s needs. Through these activities participants gain confidence and build their vocational skills. In 2008, the Accessible Garden was

opened, providing opportunities for persons with mobility issues to plant and tend to their own gardens on site. Cooking classes, horticulture workshops, field trips, organic farming practices and produce and plant sales are just a few components to Gardengate’s unique program. Gardengate is located at 915 Southill, beside Overlander Extended Care Hospital.

Trudy the bag lady makes fundraising fun! Local actress Patricia Zogar plays Trudy the bag lady, whose umbrella hat “picks up signals that seem to transmit snatches of peoples’ lives” in the hilarious, yet profound “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe,” a Tony award winning play that ran to standing room only audiences on Broadway for two years. Patricia acknowledges that it is a daunting task to follow Lilly Tomlin’s one-woman tour-de-force, but says the show is “So good I could just stand on stage and read the script and the audience would be moved and entertained. If I can add to that experience as an actor, it is a privilege for me.” The Washington Post calls the show “a compendium of pop history, a living anthropological exhibit. That makes it funny, grab-your-sides funny. But it

is also a chronicle of the human heart, trying to mend its bruises and ease its disappointments. And that makes it sublime— catch-your-breath sublime.” Patricia is producing the show at her own expense and offers it as a fundraiser. One half of total income will go to Kamloops Players for improvements to their new theatre space at 422 Tranquille while the remainder will support a different local charity each evening of the event. The show will benefit Desert Gardens Community Centre on September 14, The Phoenix Centre on September 15, the Centre for Spiritual Living, Kamloops on September 21 and Pride Kamloops GALA on September 22. Tickets may be purchased from any of the participating charities, at Mystic Dreams, 419 Tranquille or by calling 250-682-2164.

Fuller figured ladies who have fallen out of love with shopping for clothes can set out to rekindle the flame in the company 2DZ Boutique. Doris Dubois owner of 2DZ, located at 7-177 Tranquille Road, has a very progressive fashion attitude. With past agonies of dismal racks of clothes offered in retail chains, Doris dispels insecurities and encourages her customers to clad themselves in clothes that show off their shape and make them feel good. “Every time I went shopping I couldn’t find anything I liked. People with fuller figures don’t have to dress in dark, boxy clothes or flowered muumus. Bigger women have shape.” Doris asserts. Doris and her husband, Don Willan opened the store in May of 2009. Since then the couple have offered fun, flattering fashion that emphasizes a fuller figure. The 2DZ space is outfitted with brand-name clothes that are well made, stylish and affordable. They continue to offer only three of each item and customers appreciate that the chances are slim they will run into someone wearing an identical item. 2DZ also carries undergarments that smooth and shape. This not only helps clothes fit better, but

Speedy Scooter vs. Porsche: settling the score A man in a Porsche 911 stops at a stoplight and a guy on a scooter pulls up next to him. The guy on the scooter leans over and takes an admiring look at the inside of the Porsche and tells the driver that he has a really hot car. Well, the light turned green so the driver of the Porsche decides to show off and peels out and leaves the guy on the scooter in the dust. Then, all of a sudden, he sees the scooter zip past him. So, being a little cocky, the Porsche driver floors it again and blows past the guy on the scooter. A few seconds later, he again sees the scooter zip on past him. So now he’s a little irate as well as a little miffed that that scooter keeps passing him so he floors it until he is going over 100 mph. He thinks

to himself that there would be no way that scooter could catch him now, but then looks in the rear view mirror and sees that scooter starting to catch up. He then decides to find out what that scooter really is and slams on his brakes. Then the scooter crashes into the Porsche.

The driver of this car must like to laugh at other drivers!

Microsoft should make cars, GM should make software It is said that, Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated: “If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 miles to the gallon.” In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating the following: “If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would be driving cars with the following characteristics: For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day. Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you would have to buy a new car. Occasionally, your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would accept this, restart and drive on. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart; in which case you would have to reinstall the engine. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought ‘Car95’ or ‘CarNT.’ Then you would have to buy more seats. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was more reliable, five times as fast

and twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five percent of the roads. The oil, water, temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single ‘general car fault’ warning light. New seats would force everyone to have the same back-end size. The airbag system would say ‘Are you sure?’ before going off. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps (now a GM subsidiary), even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the car’s performance to diminish by 50 per cent or more. Every time GM introduced a new model, car buyers would 10/08/12 AM have to learn how to drive11:22 all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car. You’d press the ‘Start’ button to shut off the engine.
