Children’s Art Fest funding leads to legacy film On September 14 the west end of Riverside Park will be taken over by booths, tents and tables for a fun-filled, creative day of artistic, musical and theatrical activities for children ages two and up. This year’s workshops include lantern-making, henna art, clay works, theatre games, rock school, jewelrymaking, drumming, hula hooping, magic fairy ballet and much more. The entire day is free for children and their families. The festival itself began in 1999, but a fairly recent longterm funding commitment led the C h i l d r e n ’s Nine Art Festival of the committee to get creative children who are a and use the part of the KAC’s Children’s Art event to fuel Festival Documentary Project a new proj- took a break from last year’s ect that will festival for a photo op. The kids document the are from all over Kamloops on involvement both sides of the river. of local children in the festival and in the arts in general. “The Children’s Art Festival had received a five-year funding commitment from Teck Cominco,” explains Jon Fulton, festival commit-
tee member. “At one of our committee meetings we decided we’d really like to use that funding for some kind of legacy project, instead of just lumping it into the overall festival budget. We saw an opportunity to show more support for film in our arts community.” They chose to fund the Children’s Art Festival
Documentary Project. Filming began at last year’s festival and will follow the same group of young people over a five-year period, documenting their evolving relationships with the arts. “The concept is to explore children’s idea of art, how it is reflected in their daily lives and how it changes over time,” explains Jon, who is also a resident of the North Shore and father to two of the children in the film. “And it has the added layer of watching a young filmmaker develop over the same period.”
Ernie’s friends moved away from the neighbourhood…
That filmmaker is 16-year-old Kora Vanderlip of Westwold. Only 15 when the project began, Kora was approached by Jon after he’d seen a film she created and submitted to the annual Kamloops Independent Short Short (KISS) film competition. “I thought it was a very interesting concept. It was a new idea to me, to set it over five years and have it specific to children and the arts,” says Kora, who plans to attend Va n c o u v e r Film School upon graduation using a scholarship she earned through a student film competition. “We thought that, in a way, it fits that I’ll be growing up and improving skills just like the kids in the film will be. It allows me to be a part of the process in an interesting way, too.” Aside from filming the group each September at the festival, the film team is also checking in on them throughout the year. “We’re filming the kids’ extracurricular arts activities, as well, like dance and music, and will be going into their classrooms,” explains Jon, who adds that the kids were all volunteers who came forward after a call to be involved was put out. “The only requirement to be involved was – continued on page 2

Taking action against homelessness
Members of several local agencies supporting the Kamloops Homelessness Action Plan recently hosted a roundtable discussion on homelessness with the Honourable Candice Bergen, Minister of State.
BC Hydro cancels four private power contracts The Wilderness Committee recently applauded the news that BC Hydro has cancelled four electricity purchase contracts with independent power producers as part of an attempt to reduce costs. The Wilderness Committee’s National Campaign Director Joe Foy called on BC Energy Minister Bill Bennett to name the projects with cancelled or deferred contracts, and to continue this cost-saving effort by cancelling many more unneeded contracts with private hydropower producers.
“We and many other groups and individuals have been saying for quite some time now that BC Hydro is being bled to death by being forced into long-term contracts with private hydro-power producers at rates far above market value – for electrical energy BC does not need and can only sell at a loss,” said Foy. BC Hydro has currently signed more than $50 billion worth of contracts with private hydropower producers. Critics, including the Wilderness Committee, have said that these contracts risk bankrupting the public
Documenting kids in the arts – continued from page 1 to be committed to the full fiveyear term of the project. In the end, we have 13 or 14 kids who are quite involved in the arts.” “The first year has gone well I think. We were able to establish all the kids’ interests and various things they do,” says Kora of her first experience with documentary-style filmmaking. “I was surprised at the depth of involvement some of them shared when talking about the arts and how they felt. It’ll be interesting to see how the answers from them all grow and change as the years go on.” To view a trailer recently pro-

The festival goes from 11:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, September 14 in Riverside Park and will also have live performances throughout the day. Entertainers include Uncle Chris the Clown, Bishop Dance, WCT Stage One (Hansel & Gretel), and Master Viani›s Tiger Martial Arts. There will also be face-painting, a photo booth, mascots, and more, so come early and stay late and see if you and your little artists can fit it all in! Rebecca Stewart
utility and that private power projects can cause unacceptable damage to BC’s creeks, rivers and lakes. Reports from the announcement stated that the projects identified for cancellation were not meeting contractual obligations, due to financial or regulatory problems. Government documents uncovered by the Wilderness Committee through Freedom of Information requests have revealed rampant noncompliance at operating private hydropower projects in the province – including fluctuating water levels that can strand and kill fish. “Mr. Bennett should be doing everything he possibly can to wriggle out of all of these terrible contracts,” said Foy. “For every billion dollars he claws back by cancelling a contract, BC won’t miss the excess electricity one bit – but the province will save more funding for hospitals or schools and help pull BC Hydro back from financial ruin. And we’ll be saving BC’s beautiful wild waterways from being dammed and diverted into pipes for no useful reason,” he added. The Wilderness Committee is especially concerned about a number of large private hydro-
power projects currently being built or in the planning stage. “The Kokish River on Vancouver Island, the Upper Lillooet north of Pemberton and Kwoiek Creek in the Fraser Canyon are three examples of major private power projects in the works that risk great environmental and financial damage to our province,” said Foy. “These contracts need to be rejected and the projects stopped dead”.

Supporting Kamloops’ vibrant arts and sports scenes Two local arts organizations will benefit from $159,000 in Community Gaming Grants from the BC Government. The Kamloops Art Gallery will receive an $84,000 grant while the Kamloops Symphony Society will receive a $75,000 grant.
“The Kamloops Art Gallery and Kamloops Symphony Society tell local stories through artists’ eyes,” says KamloopsNorth Thompson MLA Terry Lake. “These grants support the talented, expressive people who are keeping audiences entertained and inspired.”
Additionally, eight local sports organizations will benefit from nearly $246,000 in Community Gaming Grants from the BC Government. “These are great local organizations offering competitive and recreational programs that keep people active and healthy,”
adds Terry. “I wish participants continued success in their sports endeavours and hope they encourage others to take up a new activity.” Community Gaming Grants allow non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues.
Creating community one meal and one step at a time Dear Editor, JUMP (Jubilee Urban Movement & Partners) is a not-for-profit volunteer group that creates meals in a participatory community setting every Saturday of the year and is looking for volunteers. If you prefer the daytime downtown experience, then you might like to help at the New Life Mission. We usually get there around 9:30 or 10:00am. The first step is food preparation and cook-
ing until 11:30am. At that time, the residents from the New Life Mission (approximately 20) come for lunch and are served from the counter. At noon the doors open for the general population. The only difference between the Pit Stop and the Mission lunch is that the people are not served at their tables. They come to the counter to be served. Lunch ends at 1:00pm. Otherwise, everything else is the same as at Pit Stop, as far as tasks go.
As for myself, I go to the farmers market at noon to pick up donated produce. I am back at the Mission around 12:45pm. From that time until about 2:00pm I sort through the produce from the market as well as the food brought to the mission by Food Share to determine what we need to continue cooking for the supper, if necessary, and what we will bring to the supper to give away. Therefore, by 1:30pm or 2:00pm we are usually
done at the mission. It is about a three to four hour day depending on what you can or like to do according to your availability. We then serve a supper every Saturday evening from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on the North Shore. There is no food prep or cooking involved, only set-up, serving and cleanup. Thanks, and feel free to share this with any other possible volunteers. Glenn Hilke, JUMP Volunteer Coordinator

Certified Financial Planner David Page isn’t a new face on the Kamloops financial planning scene. David has been busy in Kamloops investment circles since 1983 when he moved here from Winnipeg to open and manage an office for Investors Group, with whom he’d worked since 1975. But after 37 good years with Investors in Kamloops, David was ready to do something new. This time, he took his wealth of experience as a Certified Financial Planner to 685 Tranquille Rd. where he now operates D.W. Page Wealth Management with Manulife Securities Investment Services Inc. “The first six months have been fabulous,” says David, who is enthusiastic about the new direction, partly because it enables him to capitalize on his own achievements. He is also proud of offering a very client-centered service in his practice. “The move was relatively seamless,” says Pam Koontz, executive assistant to David. “Clients are enjoying not only the extra services and hospitality at our office, but also the all of the advantages of David’s experience.” Among the many services David specializes in, like estate and tax planning, retirement planning is at the centre of his approach to financial planning. “Your Retirement Plan must contain three key ingredients,” says David. “You need the flexibility to be able to change your investments as your personal needs change, as tax laws change and as the economy changes. You also need a co-ordinated use of both asset allocation and sector management to take advantage of both the ups and downs in the markets and, finally, a financial return that equals or betters the projected return in your plan. Otherwise, your plan will not achieve your goals.” When it comes to his own retirement, David doesn’t see himself slowing down for a very long time; financial planning is more than just a job to him, this is his life. “Why would I give up doing what I love?

Discover the secrets of Tranquille with tunnel tours The mystery and magic of the historic Tranquille underground tunnel system was brought to life recently on September 6. In a one-hour, fun-filled experience, tunnel goers venture into the tunnel system to learn about its secrets as well as embark on a wagon tour of the old Tranquille village by night. The tunnel system was originally constructed to facilitate the delivery of laundry from the site laundromat and food from the cafeteria to patients and staff across the site. Electric carts, called “tuggers” were used to pull trailers loaded with food and laundry, four of which have been restored by Tranquille Farm Fresh staff. The tunnels were used by patients and staff to move from building to building and also served as utility corridors. Tunnel construction occurred
over decades and eventually was integrated into below ground floors of the Sage Building, the Greaves Hospital, the Main Building, laundromat, cafeteria and other buildings. A barbershop, storage rooms, meeting rooms, offices, shower facilities, and morgue are included in the tunnel system. Urban legends about the Tranquille tunnels have grown to epic proportions over the last 30 thirty years. Come and learn why. Tranquille Farm Fresh operates and manages the historic 148-year-old Tranquille Farm, the Tranquille Farm Fresh market and eco tour program. They are located at the Tranquille On the Lake development site. For more information call 250434-9690, email email@example.com or visit tranquillefarmfresh.ca.

Kamloops Film Society announces Fall Series line up The Kamloops Film Society’s board of directors announced its 2013 fall film series, running from September 12 to November 21, as the society embarks on its 41st year of presenting the best of Canadian and international films to Kamloops audiences. The six films in the fall series will once again be screened on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm in the Paramount Theatre. With its newly installed digital equipment and screen, the Paramount has been the home of the KFS series and headquarters for the Kamloops Film Festival for the past several years. The fall series kicks off on Thursday, September 12 with the Richard Linklater’s drama/ romance Before Midnight. In this 2013 film Linklater returns to the two characters—Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy)—he introduced in Before Sunrise (1995), followed by Before Sunset (2004). Now nearly twenty years after their first meeting, Jesse and Celine reunite in Greece and their long shared history weighs heavily on
them. Now in their forties, their lives are defined by children, work, ambitions, disappointments and the ebb and flow of romantic love, all of which tests the two of them in unexpected ways.
Find information on the rest of the season’s line-up at kamloopsfilmsociety.ca. All films are shown at 7:00pm at the Paramount Theatre at 5th and Victoria. Tickets for each film can be purchased
at Moviemart at 444 St. Paul or at the door the evening of the screening. An annual $2 membership in the Kamloops Film Society (also available at Moviemart or at the door) is required for admission.
Let it be at Beatlesque burlesque Following five sold-out shows in Vancouver, guitarist Blue Morris brings his show Beatles Burlesque to Kamloops on September 20. Beatles Burlesque combines live music with burlesque by some of the hottest performers in Vancouver. What is burlesque? For those who aren’t regulars at Kamloops’ own monthly Burlesque nights, burlesque developed from Vaudeville and included music, theatre, comedy, and of course beautiful women. Present day burlesque combines music, dance, costume and striptease. Dancers do not strip ‘all the way;’ it’s about the art of the tease. While The Beatles are not your typical burlesque band, their
music lends itself so well to burlesque,” says Blue. “There is such a great variety of song styles and the emotional power of the music gives the burlesque performers so much to work with.” Choreographer Miss Fitt loves performing burlesque to a live band, saying, “Unlike dancing to a track, during a performance the dancer can communicate with the musicians through their movements. Live music brings a great energy to the stage adding an exciting dynamic to a performance.” Beatles Burlesque will be performed at 9:00pm on September 20 at the Dirty Jersey on 8th Street. For tickets visit beatleskamloops.bpt.me/.
A Beatles inspired burlesque show is coming through town.
