than 50 area residents turned out, some of whom are not customers, and expressed concerns about the possibility of financial or water supply impacts to them. Noting she attended the meeting, Price says she would “love” to see improvements bring good, safe water to the residents currently on the system, but adds she shouldn’t have to pay for it. “The cost is the main issue any of us have with putting it in. I didn’t want to pay [many thousands of dollars] when nobody helped to pay for my well.”

Public school teachers in the province will take a strike vote Feb. 29 in the face of a legislated end to their current labour dispute. Education Minister George Abbott announced last week he would introduce the legislation in the legislature sometime this week. Last week’s announcement came shortly after labour ministry official Trevor Hughes reported that a negotiated settlement is “very unlikely” to occur between the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA). The teachers have been without a contract since June 2011, and since September, they have been performing essential services, but refusing to complete report cards, attend administrative meetings and some supervisory aspects of their job. Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Association president Joan Erb said the results of the vote will be made public March 1. “We believe that a strong ‘yes’ vote will put more pressure on BCPSEA, resulting in what we hope will be fruitful mediation.” The BCTF has asked for the Labour Relations Board to appoint a mediator to work with both sides to reach an agreement, she noted, or failing that, appoint an independent arbitrator.

customers on the water system attended a recent meeting held in Gateway to discuss their future water-supply options with GWS owner Randy McRoberts. Representatives from Ministry of Environment and Interior Health Authority, and Cariboo Regional District (CRD) staff also attended in advisory roles for the numerous options being explored. The CRD board later reviewed documentation, stating McRoberts will cease operation of the current “40-year-old, poorly constructed” water system in the near future, and the consensus of the water customers

Anita Price at the meeting was to pursue a water system managed by the regional district. Area G Director Margo

Wagner says for that to happen, it would involve designing a new, modernized system of pressure tanks and wells, which is otherwise similar to the existing one. At its Feb. 17 board meeting, CRD directors allocated up to $3,000 for a feasibility study to investigate the potential to take over responsibility for the system. Gateway resident Anita Price says she and several others in the area, who are not GWS customers, are concerned they will be expected to pay for a new service they don’t need.

SHORT TA K E S Dry Grad fundraising campaign Until March 31, BC Liquor Stores customers can donate $1 or more to support Dry Grad celebrations in their communities. The money collected is used by school districts’ secondary school Dry Grad planning committees to plan alcohol-free school graduation events and activities. This year, 55 school districts, including our local School District 27, are participating in the campaign. The contributions by liquor store customers top up funds raised by parents, students and teachers who work all year to raise funds for dry graduation activities. Last year, BC Liquor Stores customers throughout the province donated $512,604 in support of Dry Grad events. Chocolates are given to customers in recognition of their donation to the Dry Grad campaign. Calendar . . . . . . . . . . . B4 BC Views. . . . . . . . . . . A9 Classifieds . . . . . . . .

ENTERTAINMENT Carole Rooney photo

Before classes started on Feb. 27, many local teachers in 100 Mile House picketed with placards and information outside of Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School. It was part of their participation in a Demonstrative Day of Action across the province.

Abbott won’t negotiate beyond net-zero TEACHERS… from page A1 Erb added she hopes Abbott will consider that avenue rather than legislation to force all job duties to be resumed with an imposed contract. With the two sides $2 billion apart on wages and benefits, Abbott said mediation would not work for the monetary dispute, as the government will not consider any arbitration that is inconsistent with its net-zero mandate. With three-quarters of B.C. public employees

and more than 100 contracts negotiated with that mandate, he explained the province must proceed on that basis. B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair said he was concerned Premier Christy Clark was intentionally setting the groundwork for a “completely unnecessary fight” with teachers as a distraction from 10 years of “under funding and mismanagement of education” by the B.C. Liberal government. “British Columbians don’t want a fight. They want their government to negotiate and to do what

is right for their children.” Meanwhile, Erb noted that pushing a contract on teachers is not “backto-work” legislation, but rather it’s enforcing teachers to do non-essential tasks, as teachers have been performing most of their work. The lack of report cards is not a problem for parents she talked to, Erb said, adding teachers have kept them informed how their child is doing in the classroom. In his report, Hughes pointed to the government’s net-zero wage increase mandate and the BCTF’s demand for a

15 per cent wage increase over three years in his report. Erb said this wasn’t a wage increase, but rather a way to “catch up” with inflation. “In an attempt to meet the demands of inflation, we asked for that cost of living increase to deal with inflation, but that was denied completely. “B.C. has the highest cost of living in the country and yet we’re ninth on the scale for [school teachers’] pay.” BCTF has been to the bargaining table almost 80 times, she explained, and while they brought

negotiable objectives, the government’s bargaining agent didn’t. “All BCPSEA has brought to the table is netzero mandate and [things they want to strip from] the collective agreement in respect to seniority, and posting and filling positions.” Government is attempting to “take more control” of the teachers, she added, which defeats the main purpose of having a collective agreement. “Seniority is the basis of a union ... we’ve brought a reduced package, and still it was like talking to a brick wall.”

NDP: Budget 2012 hurts families in B.C. Carole Rooney Free Press

Cariboo-Chilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse says he’s concerned the B.C. Liberal government’s recently released 2012 budget shows it has failed British Columbians, particularly in the CaribooChilcotin. “What we see in this [B.C.] Liberal budget is more costs for families, not less. It’s difficult to reconcile this budget with Premier Christy Clark’s stated promise to put families first. How will this budget serve B.C. families?” He notes the B.C. Liberal government has a “long track record of increasing fees,” such as the recent four per cent

Charlie Wyse hike in Medical Services Plan premiums. “There’s been a constant shift of the tax load onto the middle-class working family, and this budget continues that practice.” Despite increased fees,

the “priority choices” being made by this government leaves people in the Cariboo without their needs being met every day, Wyse adds. Issues in health care in 100 Mile House include complex-care needs, he says, pointing to 14 beds in a new wing at Fischer Place/Mill Site Lodge that remain unopened. “In the numbers I have been given, they remain consistent at six to seven people requiring complex care that are still being looked after in the hospital, and Fischer Place is an area for expansion for additional seniors. “The government was able to find $15 million for the Jobs Plan [advertising] that they’re running. Clearly, that’s a choice

they’ve made.” The extent the government has gone to in its plan to sell land assets to try to balance the budget and obtain a “tiny projected surplus” in the future budgets provides him “no comfort,” Wyse explains. “The [B.C. Liberals] have no qualms at leaving the HST [Harmonized Sales Tax] in place for another year, yet at the same time, they’ve had to look around and try to find approximately $700 million by selling off assets in a fire sale.” A one-time property liquidation plan isn’t a sustainable source of revenue, Wyse says, adding it comes from a government that has had seven deficit budgets since coming into power. “I’m not comfortable

that they’re going to be able to balance the budget in 2013. “When you look back in the election of 2009 ... the Liberals ‘swore on a stack of Bibles’ the deficit would be approximately a half a billion dollars, yet upon being re-elected and the charges roll in, it turned out to be closer to $3 billion.” The NDP candidate, who was narrowly defeated current Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett, says the same kind of “financial mismanagement” as seen in the budget leaves B.C.’s working families paying more when many are taking home less. “This government now expects them to spin gold from the lint in their pockets.”

Highway 97 upgrades continue By Vic Popiel The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure held an open house at the 70 Mile Community Hall on Feb. 16 to inform the public on the plans for upcoming work on Highway 97. The hall was open between 3 and 7 p.m. to allow residents to view plans on the proposed improvements north of 70 Mile House. Many ministry employees were available for discussions. The room was divided in half, one for each of the two projects. The first display covered the Stormy Road project. This

play showed the four-laning from Loch Lomond to the north boundary of 70 Mile House. Project manager Lisa Miller and technician Scotty McKenzie answered questions about this phase of construction.

In the proposed bylaw, shipping containers are not allowed in residential areas except on a temporary basis during periods of active construction on the property performed under a valid building permit. Certain bylaw regulations for other areas include aspects for permanent placement in non-residential areas, such as required visual screening from roadways and limits to quantities per parcel/ lot size and allowable uses. Mayor Mitch Campsall says coun-

MLA defends education budget Free Press

Joan Erb maintenance grant, which remains at $110 million in 2012/13. However, CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says funding to school districts will increase, despite a trend of “rapidly” declining enrolment in most of British Columbia’s school districts. The budget increase includes the previouslyannounced $165 million for a Learning Improvement Fund (LIF) to deal with issues of class composition, which Barnett says is in response to the Supreme Court ruling on the bill last spring. However, CaribooChilcotin Teachers’ Association president Joan Erb notes that in the already overcrowded classrooms, the LIF plan for putting in teacher aids, labelled as student education assistants, is not the answer. While assistants are invaluable to teachers, Erb says teachers are the

Abbott said he may allow certain public institutions with excess assets to sell them and “use the proceeds to support future services,”

Over 30 years experience

Barnett explains, but only if they are not in use or earmarked for future use, and have no strategic benefit for government to retain. However, the local MLA confirms the budget contains no more money for bargaining collective agreements with teachers, as government is going to stick to its net-zero mandate for public employees. The education system is “well funded” now, she says, adding restraint is needed because there simply isn’t any more cash to give out. “No, there is no extra money; we know that. We know times are tough, budgets are tough, and nobody likes to say ‘no’ but there are times when you have no choice.”

The B.C. Liberal government’s Budget 2012 reveals its deficit forecast for 2011/12 improved by $594 million over projections, now standing at $2.5 billion. It forecasts a deficit of $968 million for the 2012/13 fiscal year starting April 1, and then surpluses of $154 million in 201314 and $250 million in 2014-15. Over the next three years the B.C. Liberals plan to cap annual spending to average two per cent, but Finance Minister Kevin Falcon indicated in his budget speech in the legislature last week that this won’t affect funding for education or health. BC Conservative Leader John Cummins calls the 2012 budget projections “accounting smoke and mirrors.” “Although the government is claiming there will be a surplus in the 2013/14 fiscal year, the provincial debt will be increasing by nearly $5.1 billion.... Even if the government is calling it a surplus, the government is spending more than it is taking in.” Block funding to school districts remains unchanged from last year’s budget at $4.7 billion annually for the next three years, as does the annual facilities

trained experts to deal with students with learning disabilities and behavioural difficulties. “At the risk of sounding logical, it makes more sense just to have smaller class sizes. Take that $165 million and put it into some teachers.” However, Barnett says the LIF may not reduce class sizes, but does provide some of the assistance special needs teachers have been requesting. “They’re getting more support to help them and to help the children because that’s what we’re all concerned about.” She says some further aspects for the methods for disbursement of education funding yet to come. “[Education Minister George Abbott] has said he is going to protect rural schools and so there are going to be some changes, I know, in how rural schools are funded, so we won’t lose rural and remote schools.” Meanwhile, many vacant school properties are among the provincial assets to be liquidated starting

CRD hands off Forest Capital designation On Feb. 22, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) handed off the Forest Capital of Canada designation to the province of British Columbia to celebrate the centenary of the BC Forest Service in 2012. For the past two years, the CRD has proudly served as Canada’s Forest Capital, hosting a celebration of the region’s forest resources. A ceremony took place at the Association of BC Forest Professionals Convention in Victoria with Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson accepting the Forest Capital plaque from CRD chair Al Richmond and Director John Massier.

However, some residents indicated they were not happy with the fact she could not guarantee there would never be a future impact on non-customers living alongside the potential new system, the CRD director explains. Price says she is one of those feeling troubled by possible future financial hits from the regional district. “The concern is that the CRD will not follow through with that promise, people are worried that costs will be put on later that we will have no control over.” Another issue yet to be addressed is whether a new system could affect

Were a society formed by a small group of residents to take over the system, it would face liability issues and prohibitive costs, she says. The CRD will be holding a meeting to determine the number of interested households before the feasibility study proceeds, Wagner says, and a referendum would take place before the regional district could move forward with a plan. Meanwhile several area residents remain worried about financial impacts down the road, says Price. “Now, it’s just whether or not we trust the CRD to put it in and not charge us.”

Throughout the past two years, the CRD published a commemorative magazine, Our Backyard - Forests of the Cariboo Chilcotin, which focused on the various non-traditional

aspects of the forest industry through stories, poetry and photography for travellers, investors and residents wanting to learn more about local initiatives. The CRD also hosted a Forest Capital Speaker Series and hosted National Forest Week activities throughout the region, planting seedlings, and sponsoring various community events, says Richmond. “We consider the last two years to have been a success; our holistic approach to forestry looked at all of the economic opportunities the forest land base offers. Even with our extremely limited budget and smallscale projects, we were able to reach a large audience with our message.” The CRD directors and staff thank the Canadian Forestry Association, the more than 65 community partners and sponsors who made the Forest Capital program possible, and the CRD Forest Capital Committee chair, former Electoral Area E Director, Steve Mazur.

Lac la Hache ice lights up The Lac la Hache Community Club is getting an $18,000 boost from the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) for Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena upgrades. The Community Works funding is fuelled by the federal government’s gas tax agreement with the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM). CRD Area G Director Al Richmond says the upgrades will improve energy efficiency at the arena building by replacing the current, high-energy metal halide lamps with new fluorescent lighting. The energy-saving lights can use 30 per cent less power consumption, he explains, and also warm up to full brightness faster. Club treasurer Jeanette McCrea says the new T5 lighting (the highest efficiency fluorescent) produces a bright, clean light that is suitable for the hockey games. She adds they are the same as those installed at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre arena in 100 Mile House last year. “It will be quite a big difference; apparently, it will be quite a whiter light.” The funding is “great” for the non-profit organization, she explains. While the club volunteers can typically manage day-to-day operations, McCrea adds any larger-scale projects need extra support. She says it is “nice to get help” and expects the energy bills will drop considerably. “A big thank you [goes] to the CRD. We could not have done this without their support.” She notes the lighting installations at the arena will begin at the end of March, when the ice is out after the last hockey tournament. For folks who haven’t seen it yet, Richmond says the club also completed significant upgrades recently at the community hall. “They’ve done an awful lot of work in the community hall ... it really looks spectacular.”

Training and equipment prevent avalanche deaths The season for winter recreation in the backcountry is upon us, and the BC Coroners Service (BCCS) is encouraging all those going out to take special care to prevent deaths caused by avalanches. During the 2010/11 winter season, nine people died when they were caught up in backcountry avalanches, and all of those deaths were preventable. The coroners’ investigations have shown that two-thirds of the deaths occurred among persons who were snowmobiling at the time. The others were backcountry skiing.

Eight of the nine deaths were of males. The average age of those who died was 44 years. None were children or teenagers. Only two of the nine resided in British Columbia. The others were visiting from the Prairie provinces. The BCCS, along with the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) and Emergency Management BC, has found avalanche awareness is improving, and more backcountry users are carrying essential avalanche safety equipment transceivers, shovels and probes.

es, the B.C. Liberals Budget 2012 is an austerity budget, but more than that, it is a pre-election budget if there ever was one. Premier Christy Clark, who has been quiet through the Feb. 21 budget announcement process, is drawing the lines of the battlefield on which the 2013 provincial election will be fought. Premier Clark appears to be content to let Finance Minister Kevin Falcon take any flak that may come about due to the hold-the-line on spending with two per cent increases likely to be allowed for health, education and social services for the next three years. That won’t cover the increase cost of inflation, so we can expect some major budget slashing as the austerity plan trickles down into the trenches where the work is actually done. Meanwhile, we aren’t hearing much from NDP Leader Adrian Dix either, as it appears he prefers to let his lieutenants voice their disapproval of Budget 2012. We believe the bottom line in this budget is the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and its dismantling, following British Columbians referendum decision to dump the unpopular tax. We predict the B.C. Liberals will continue to shift the blame for the austerity budget on the lack of understanding of the great unwashed that killed the HST last August. The reality, of course, is the B.C. Liberals foisted it on us and then premier Gordon Campbell and current Premier Clark frittered away the $1.6 billion federal transition funding to prop up the government’s bottom line, and in Clark’s case, boost her personal popularity. As they prepare for the 2013 budget/election, the B.C. Liberals will pat themselves on the back for their fiscal prudence and their ability to pay down the deficit they created in the first place. They’ll do that with the multi-million-dollar excess in annual HST revenue they’re grabbing out of our pockets, even though we were told it would be revenue neutral. Leading up to the election call, they will spend a lot of our money trying to convince us to avoid the “fiscal irresponsibility” of the NDP, and the upstart BC Conservatives, in general. Meanwhile, some important questions linger. Will our students suffer and be ill prepared for the future; will social services not be able to keep up with B.C.’s unchecked proverty; and will the health-care nightmare continue?

DriveABLE safety assessments needed I recognize the prospect of losing one’s driving privileges can be very upsetting. For most of us, driving is an important part of maintaining our lifestyle and independence. As we age, it is normal for our driving abilities to change and it’s important to pay attention to these changes. Government has the responsibility of balancing an individual’s desire to drive with the responsibility to ensure the public safety of all British Columbians. DriveABLE is one of the tools we use to help us make those decisions in a fair and responsible way. We believe it is the best assessment available to determine a person’s cognitive ability to drive. The DriveABLE assessment is scientifically based and is used not only in B.C., but also in jurisdictions across North America. I want to assure all British Columbians, especially seniors, that I hear their concerns about DriveABLE. It is clear that as a government, we need to do a better job of explaining the process. I’ve asked the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (SMV) to develop an outreach plan that will have staff visit communities across the province to explain driver medical fitness requirements and demonstrate how the DriveABLE assessment works.

SHIRLEY BOND

GUEST SHOT At age 80, every driver is asked to complete a driver medical examination with their physician. This is a general medical assessment that examines a person’s medical fitness to drive safely, and it assesses vision, physical abilities and medical conditions that may affect driving. Only those people who have been identified by a physician as having cognitive issues are referred by the Office of the SMV to DriveABLE. Government pays the full cost of the assessment for any drivers they refer. It is important to note not all seniors need to take a DriveABLE assessment. In fact, of the nearly half a million drivers over the age of 65 in B.C., only about 1,500 are referred by the SMV each year for a DriveABLE assessment. The decision to remove a person’s driving privileges is not taken lightly, and in all driver medical fitness decisions, the SMV will consider changes to medical information when making decisions about an individual’s driving status. Since DriveABLE was introduced in 2005, we’ve expanded

from just three locations to 17, to give drivers across the province more convenient access. Mobile units are often deployed to smaller communities, such as Fort St John and Peace River. We continue to look at opportunities to expand services, where required. Let me clear up some myths about the in-office assessment, which is designed to assess for driving errors associated with cognitive decline, not general driving skill or knowledge of rules of the road. Although the in-office assessment is presented on a touch-screen monitor, computer knowledge is not required and has no bearing on results. The staff that administers the in-office DriveABLE assessment is trained health-care professionals who guide the driver through the assessment from start to finish. This government is committed to helping British Columbians better understand the DriveABLE cognitive assessment and the services available to them. I believe we all share the same goal of improving safety for everyone on our roads and highways and we feel the DriveABLE assessment is helping to achieve that. For more information, visit www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/osmv/. Shirley Bond is the Minister of Justice and Attorney General.

Taxing times for B.C. government NTERTAINMENT

A horrible way to treat a cat To the editor: On Feb. 17, I was sickened to learn of a sick cat in the Watch Lake landfill. This older brown cat was thrown into the garbage trench in a black Safeway reusable bag like a bag of trash. The cat was crying loudly, and upon further investigation, it was located and found to be in very rough shape. It could not get out of the bag itself. It had one damaged eye and was cold and scared. Why would anyone dispose of a family pet in this manner? Any animal disposed of like this will just die a slow, agonizing death

from starvation, dehydration, hypothermia or by a predator. There are other ways to deal with sick or unwanted animals. I hope whoever did this has a big case of guilt and shame. The animal should have been taken to the local vet clinic to be put down in a humane manner or you could have contacted the SPCA to find out what your options were. This kind of thing happens much too often. In a civilized world like the one we live in, there is no excuse for anyone to do this to a poor helpless animal. Judy Macdonald 100 Mile House

Thank you, Ann, for your supportive words. We’ve been flooded with support and appreciation for putting on the Richard Heinberg event. I was on the fairly large planning committee for the event.

the District of 100 Mile House that the grant request was warranted. Actually, council did consider these things — and needs to consider them if they are being fiscally responsible. Then they made a decision this event was important and they wanted to support it. That’s what we should probably pay attention to. We try our best, but sometimes say things in a way that gives an impression we didn’t intend. Ann said it well in her letter. I don’t think anyone intended harm in this case. Town folks and others from further afield were treated to an exceptional evening, and I hope nothing gets in the way of that important message Richard Heinberg brought. Maddi Newman 108 Mile Ranch

VICTORIA – Before this week’s budget debate is drowned out by the shouting over the teachers’ dispute, here’s a look at the main points and the arguments unfolding around them. The setting for Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s first budget is what he dreaded when Premier Christy Clark handed him the job. Recovery is painfully slow, with mining and petroleum growing and forest products struggling to hold and build on gains made in Asia. This and the $3-billion dismantling of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) moved Falcon to limit overall spending growth to an average of two per cent for the next three years. That means little or no increase to all areas except health care, education and social assistance. Despite holding the line on public service pay and not replacing 2,000 positions over the next three years, Clark and Falcon had to postpone the elimination of the 2.5-per-cent small business income tax to get to a balanced budget by 2013. Falcon has again dangled the prospect of raising general corporate income tax from 10 to 11 per cent, but not until 2014. Business experts applauded the hard line on spending, noting the contrast with Alberta’s big spending and Ontario’s big spending hangover. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston says Falcon’s two per cent spending target is “unrealistic,” and the whole program is motivated mostly by two byelections this year and a

TOM FLETCHER

BC VIEWS general election next year. He said the proposal to raise general business taxes is a repeat of his effort to save the HST, and it won’t happen if the B.C. Liberals win in 2013. B.C. Conservative Leader John Cummins made the bizarre claim that it’s an NDP-style “tax and spend” budget, and inaccurately accused Falcon of raising taxes on small business. He also joined the NDP chorus of outrage over ICBC, BC Hydro and medical premium increases. Some other hot topics in the budget: • Selling assets. The big one here is B.C.’s liquor wholesaling monopoly, run out of warehouses in Kamloops and Vancouver. Falcon insists the private sector does this kind of work more efficiently, and union contracts will be protected in a bidding process. The NDP argues that selling off a monopoly puts

this government cash cow at risk, and points to private retail stores with higher prices and lower wages. The proposed sale of 100 surplus Crown properties has raised cries of “selling the silverware to buy groceries.” However, land sales are nothing new for governments, and Falcon prefers that to raising taxes. • Carbon tax. The last scheduled increase goes ahead in July, adding another penny on a litre of gasoline, followed by a freeze and review of the whole climate program. Ralston says the climate plan is “in tatters,” along with dozens of other policy areas that are also under review after 11 years of B.C. Liberal rule. NDP Leader Adrian Dix vows to keep the carbon tax and its offsetting personal income tax cuts, direct carbon tax revenues to transit and rural energy-saving retrofits, and hike the general corporate tax rate from 10 to 12 per cent to pay for it. • HST. Asked what he would have done as finance minister, Ralston suggested getting rid of the HST sooner. Dix continues to misrepresent the HST as solely a transfer to big business, ignoring the small and medium-sized businesses that have a year left to take advantage of input tax credits. Simon Fraser University economist Jon Kesselman has estimated that poor people will be worse off when the HST ends, while the rest of us will see a very small net benefit. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Government will snoop and make lists To the editor: If you dare to question [Prime Minister Stephen] Harper’s Conservatives on their policies, your name might end up on a “not-with-us-thereforeagainst-us” list. The List will likely include the 60 per cent who did not vote Conservative in the last election, as well as anyone who has questioned their plans for more prisons, F-35 fighter jets, tar-sands exploitation and e-mail snooping. Based on the attitude of Harper’s government, The List is only going to get longer. E-mail snooping alone could generate horrendous amounts of personal data on “perceived-to-be-dubious” Canadians.

P e rh a p s the Conservatives scrapped the long-gun registry program in order to get their hands on all that computer equipment for tabulating a “they’re-

against-us” List. Teenagers in British Columbia were able to entrap child predators without any intrusive legislation. If the RCMP can’t do its job with the

tools it has, maybe they should contract out the task to those innovative Chilliwack teenagers. Lloyd Atkins Vernon

BC 2012 budget irresponsible To the editor: Finance Minister Kevin Falcon has told British Columbians his 2012 budget is “responsible” and “prudent.” As a result, residents of this province are faced with an austerity agenda not seen since 1983. When governments fail to invest in public services that save money and reduce long-term cost drivers, they are, in fact, being irresponsible

and imprudent. For example, homeand community-care services, such as home support to improve the quality of care for seniors and keep them out of expensive and inappropriate hospital beds. A couple of weeks ago, the provincial ombudsperson released her report on seniors’ care in British Columbia, providing the government with 176 recommendations that, if

implemented, would save money and lives. Unfortunately, there is little evidence in this year’s budget to indicate the B.C. Liberal government plans to act on the ombudsperson’s recommendations. Today’s seniors and future generations will bear the cost of this inaction. Alice Edge, co-chair BC Health Coalition

The city also stated it will not speculate as to the cause of the incident, preferring instead to wait for the outcome of the investigation. “The city will notify residents when the investigation is complete and when the closed areas of the Complex will re-open to the public.” Of the 70 patients treated at the Cariboo Memorial Hospital, about 45 were children.

Margaret Ferrier Lac la Hache Absolutely. I think as people become more aware of food sources and locally grown foods, that’s going to be important.

Grade 5 students offered drugs MERRITT — Merritt mother Kerstin Auer is speaking out about drugs after her 10-yearold son was offered marijuana during his lunch break at Merritt Central Elementary on Monday (Feb. 20). “You can’t sweep something like this under the rug,” said Auer. “Parents have the responsibility to educate their kids and hope they make the right decision.” Though she was disturbed by the news, in this instance Auer was relieved that her son did the right thing. Auer said her son and his friend were approached by an older male with a backpack who asked them if they wanted some weed. Her 10-year-old described him as being about 5-foot-7, with brown hair and tanned skin and said he approached from the direction of Merritt Secondary School near the parking lot at Central. Auer said the boys said no and told the first adult they saw, who then passed the information on to Central principal Trent Dolgopol.

These insulins were not exactly the same as human insulin and did cause some adverse reactions in some diabetics. When human clinical trials are done on new medications, two groups of people are compared: one takes an actual drug while the other group receives a placebo (a look-alike product that contains no drug). The larger the number of people studied, the more reliable the results are. Also, the drug group has to show a definite improvement over the placebo group otherwise the drug won’t be marketed.

Break-in and drinking driver highlight 100 Mile House RCMP blotter last week 7:00am - 6:00pm POLICE Monday to Saturday REPORT

100 Mile RCMP responded to 60 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Tools stolen On Feb. 21, 100 Mile RCMP received a report of a break-andenter at a residence

under construction in the 7000 block of Johnstone Road near Bridge Lake. A number of tools were stolen, including a table saw and a mitre saw. Anyone having information about this break-andenter is asked to call the 100 Mile House RCMP at 250-395-2456 or call CrimeStoppers

at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Drinking and drifting On Feb. 21, 100 Mile RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision at Canim Lake First Nations reserve. The driver of a Ford Aerostar van drifted out of the westbound lane when a Chevrolet pickup

truck was attempting to pass. The van then lost control and went into a ditch. The female driver of the Aerostar van was determined to be impaired by alcohol. She was detained and returned to the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment office, where two breath samples of 220 and 210 mg% were obtained.

Charges of impaired driving over the legal limit are being recommended to Crown against a 28-year-old female resident of Canim Lake. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured. There were approximately $5,000 damages between the two vehicles. The investigation into this matter is continuing.

Green renewable energy is the solution for province To the editor: The provincial government’s announcement of $17 million in funding to help get British Columbia consumers into cleanenergy vehicles, and support B.C.’s green-tech sector, is something the B.C. Citizens for Green Energy (BCCGE), applauds and fully supports. Making clean-energy transportation options more affordable for consumers, and getting more electric-, hydrogen- and natural gas-powered vehicles on the road, along with the necessary infrastructure to support the initiative, is a good thing. However, in order to achieve a net gain from reduced tailpipe emissions, we also need to ensure the electricity powering these clean-energy vehicles, and the associated infrastructure, is coming from renewable clean-energy sources rather than from imported coal-fired electricity. In this regard, recent talk about scaling back on B.C.’s electricity self-sufficiency objectives, and potentially relying more heavily on imports of cheap coalfired electricity, at a time when electricity demands from new transportation initiatives and industrial growth are increasing

concerns me greatly, and it should also concern your readers. That is the BCCGE has encouraged the provincial government to stay the course with the current policy of electricity selfsufficiency and support the jobs that renewable energy development can create province-wide. The BCCGE has also encouraged members of the public, who share our concern, to write to their respective MLAs and make their view known. Placing more electric vehicles and hydrogen-powered vehicles, and even natural gas-powered vehicles, on the road is a very good thing. If B.C. wants to remain a climate-change and clean-energy leader, we are going to have to meet increased electricity demand in this province with renewable clean energy. We should never lose sight of the fact that investments in clean, renewable energy by previous generations in this province has given B.C. one of North America’s lowest electricity rates and provided thousands of jobs along the way.

Single-cup coffee makers recall underway Ken Alexander Free Press

There is a joint recall with BSH Home Appliances Corporation, Health Canada, and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission underway. The recall involves Bosch Tassimo brewers and the Tassimo

Professional brewer made by BSH. The brewer uses plastic discs (T Discs) that are filled with coffee or tea to brew hot drinks that can burst and spray hot liquid, coffee grounds and/ or tea leaves onto users or bystanders, posing a burn hazard. There have been 140 reports from con-

sumers who have come into contact with hot liquid, coffee grounds and/or tea leaves discharged from the brewer, including 37 reports of second-degree burn injuries. The espresso T Discs, produced during a certain time period, appear to be the problem, as they can burst.

AVALANCHE… from page A7 Furthermore, recommended equipment, such as avalanche balloon packs, are becoming increasingly popular. However, many still have not taken sufficient training to use that equipment to its greatest effectiveness. A person buried in an avalanche can suffocate in minutes and long before expert help can arrive, so the ability to perform quick and effective rescues is vital. Information about training courses is provided through the CAC. New this

year is the one-day Companion Rescue course, which focuses on the skills needed to respond to an avalanche incident. For more information, see the CAC website at www.avalanche.ca, where you will find

a basic online course, as well as information on introductory and advanced avalanche skills training courses. This training is essential for anyone planning to venture into the backcountry in winter.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Tassimo brewers and check the website below to see if their coffee makers are on the recall list. Folks, who have coffee makers on the recall list and call the toll-free number below, will be sent the part that holds the T Discs in place when the top is closed if they qualify. This part easily clicks in and out of the coffee maker. Furthermore, folks, who have products that use the espresso discs, will be asked

Defamation on Social Networks

Lauren Bock photo

Facebook has been described as a walled garden. If you aren’t a Facebook member, you can’t view its content. And even members can only see what their friends let them see. So when you’re in your “garden” you can be safe sharing private feelings and thoughts with your chosen friends, right? Wrong. The British Columbia Court of Appeal’s decision in Nesbitt v. Neufeld, [2011] BCCA 241, reminds us that anything we write about someone else has the potential to get us into trouble. In this precedent-setting case, the Court upheld an award of $40,000 in damages, plus special costs, against Dr. Michael Nesbitt for defamation and invasion of privacy. The Court described Dr. Nesbitt’s conduct as “reprehensible” when he went online in his custody battle with his child’s mother. Although the Defendant in this case very clearly crossed the line (he also set up a website about Ms. Neufeld and sent emails to her Rotary Club), there is a lesson here for everyone who uses social media or even sends text messages. You can be sued for writing things about other people even if the communication is private or on a social network. In Canada, any communication to a third party which might harm the reputation of a person mentioned is defamation. So, anything you say or write about another person is game if you share it with others. Of course, there are defences: provable truth is a complete defence, and journalists get a little break because we want to enable them to do their jobs effectively. But even if what you say is ultimately defensible, if you are dragged into court, you will still need to retain a lawyer to defend you. In view of the dangers of writing about other people online, perhaps the cautious social networker is best advised to subscribe to the all-too-familiar practice of sharing and writing only about oneself!

power. That power difference can come in many ways - size, age, economic, culture and gender. Bullying can happen at anytime in your life, in your home in your workplace and, most importantly, at school. As it is with most things, bullying has the greatest impact when we are young. Most adults, 95 per cent, believe we all have a responsibility to take action and reduce bullying. We can do this in lots of ways. Most importantly, we need to speak out and speak loud when we see bullying happening. We need to name it and say, “No!” In the schoolyard, we can add a fourth R for respect. Mentoring is another way to take action. We can work with victims and bullies to teach positive values. Bullying is everyone’s issue. Whether you are male, female, young or old, you, or someone you know, has been affected by bullying. Everyone can be a positive role model for someone else. Pay attention to how

you talk to others. If you see someone being bullied, are you big enough to stop it, or are you just another bully because you are going to stand and watch? Karen Beresford is the Stopping the Violence counsellor for the 100 Mile & District Women’s Centre Society.

Wildfire potential needs attention An investigation into the state of fire management planning has found fire management plans have been prepared in all forest districts in the province, says Forests Practices Board chair Al Gorley. He adds they provide the basic information needed to help plan a response

Lac la Hache Elementary School students and staff had a lot of fun at their recent Carnival day. Bonhomme Carnival even came all the way from Quebec to join in the fun throughout the day.

Students celebrate Carnival By Monika Paterson Lac la Hache Elementary School students had a fun-filled day of activities and French heritage celebrations Feb. 9. Their day began with very filling homemade crepes filled with their choice of jam, Nutella or syrup and icing sugar and lemon if they desired. Following breakfast they proceeded to the gym to break into four groups to sing and act out some winter songs of their choosing that they had spent a lot of time practising. Then it was on to more carnival activities, which the students helped to come up with and organize. They included a slushyeating contest, which created the interesting facial expressions that often occur when drinking something very cold way too fast, but they were troopers. There were snowball on spoon races (egg-and-spoon winter version). They also built snow sculptures in the large

piles of snow around the parking lot at the school. The students also enjoyed creating and eating maple taffy, a French Canadian traditional treat, brought by settlers many years ago. Maple syrup is heated to boiling over an open campfire, poured on top of snow, and as it begins to firm up and harden, it’s rolled on a stick like a lollypop. It was a sweet treat that was enjoyed by all. The children also enjoyed their apple cider, while watching Brad Johnson of Sitka Log Homes carve two log chairs using a chainsaw. The students’ names were put in a hat and two of them were awarded the chairs to take home. Other events included an obstacle course and ski slogging, during which three people per team used skis made of two-by-fours and rope loops, raced across the gym. All of this activity only took them to lunch time, where they enjoyed poutine fries from the

Hungry Bear, and tourtiere pies made and cooked by the Grade 4-7 class. After lunch the students laughing with excitement, slid down the hill with their colourful cardboard boxes that had crazy carpets attached to the bottom to assist in the momentum. Their day concluded with the completion of their ice sculptures, photos with Bonhomme Carnival, the carnival mascot, who also wandered

around the school during the day. The students also enjoyed drinking hot chocolate and lighting sparklers to simulate fireworks at the conclusion of the event.

Athletes rewarded at BC Winter Games NTERTAINMENT Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

The 2012 Vernon BC Winter Games are now history and South Cariboo athletes are part of it. Every competitor from the 100 Mile House area came home with at least one medal as a memento of the huge provincial sporting event. Paige Hall from the Kokoro Judo Club in 100 Mile House struck gold in Judo, winning each of her three matches in the Under 52-kilogram Women’s division. She and Cariboo-North East Zone 8 teammates, Aidan Fentiman and Aaron McDermid, also from Kokoro, each came home with silver after a brilliant showing in the Judo team competition. Hall, with the Games being only her third competition, was too inexperienced for Ian Briggs, coach of the Kokoro club and the Zone 8 team, to predict the great solo outcome, but she handled the pressure like a pro. “As soon as she

their Zone 8 team’s performance. Mellott started off strong, scoring the final goal in their 4-0 victory in

game 1 against Vancouver Island-Central Coast. In game 2 against Kootenay, Mellott got the assist on Uphill’s goal to contribute to a 4-0 win. Their only loss in the series was a 6-3 defeat to Fraser Valley, the eventual gold-medal team. Mellott tucked away the second goal of that game to help her team to a 3-0 lead by the end of the first period, but by Fraser Valley stormed back with a second-period, five-goal barrage. The showdown for bronze saw CaribooNorth East tied 1-1 in the third against ThompsonOkanagan until in the final few minutes. Cariboo scored a short-handed goal and an empty-netter to seal the deal in their favour. In total, athletes from Cariboo-North East collected 43 medals, with 13 gold, 17 silver and 13 bronze to finish fifth overall. They beat out Fraser River Delta with 36, Kootenays with 14 and North West with 11. Vancouver-Squamish was first with 81 medals.

Grapplers give it their all at wrestling championships Young wrestlers from 100 Mile House proved to be tough contenders at the BC High School Wrestling Championships in Penticton, Feb. 23-25. Tiana Dykstra, a Grade 8 student at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School, won silver in the Girls 43-kilogram division after narrowly losing a deciding match with Grade 12 student Jordan Bodnar from the Alberni District. “Tiana had an extremely good year and will only get better and better,” says Phil Johnston, her 100 Mile Wrestling Club coach. Marina Dykstra, still building up strength after shoulder surgery last July, placed fourth in Girls 57-kg. Johnston says it was a talented division of wrestlers and Marina had just been back on the

her arm and prepare for nationals, which are in mid-April. Marina says her arm is still sore and that she hurt

it in the first match. “It brought my confidence level down. I’m still trying to get back to where I was and it’s hard

to come back.” Nathaniel Bryan, a newcomer to wrestling, placed in the top 12 of the 30-competitor Boys 57-kg

weight class. “For having only been wrestling for one year and this being only his fourth tournament, he did extremely well,” says Johnston. The BC Championships took place at the Adidas Sportsplex, with close to 500 secondary-school competitors. Next up for elementary-school club members is the Smackdown elementary play day, March 3 in Williams Lake. Marina heads to 2012 Cadet/Juvenile National Wrestling Championships, April 12-15 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. “I think I’ll be ready for nationals. I’m back wrestling after my surgery earlier than expected. I didn’t think I’d be wrestling by now.”

Junior curlers rock in Salmon Arm bonspiel Free Press

Junior curlers from the 100 Mile Curling Club took a shot at competing the Salmon Arm Junior Bonspiel, Feb. 18, and they came up winners. The 12-team tournament also drew participants from Kamloops, Chase, Armstrong, Winfield and Salmon Arm to play in Novice and Super Novice divisions. The Hannah Lindner rink from 100 Mile House took first place in the Novice Open division. Her teammates included Madison Ardiel, Natalie Hefer

and Elaine Hefer. The 100 Mile House team of Christian Taylor, Eric Schuurman, Kolten Lindner and Dirk Schuurman tied for third in the Boys Novice category. The local team of Patrick Guy, Josh Beresford, Chance Bourassa and a player from Salmon Arm who filled in as their spare finished sixth in that same nineteam division. Coach Maxine Todhunter says it was the first bonspiel for some of her players. “They all said it was so much fun. I feel good about how they did.” The 100 Mile

Volleyball tournament serves up fun Strange Brew adult mixed volleyball team from 100 Mile House hosted a nineteam tournament in the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School gymnasium, Feb. 25-26. Visitors came from Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Hope and Williams Lake for competitive roundrobin games and a banquet on Saturday and double knockout games on Sunday. A team from Kamloops was the winner, beating Williams Lake 25-22 and 25-20 in the bestof-three final. Williams Lake worked hard for its spot in the final, playing four consecutive games with just one break to qualify. “They did a great job,” says Josh Dickerson, one of the key organizers. Salmon Arm was the third-place team and Strange Brew placed fourth. Dickerson says the average age of the players was 36 years and his team, Strange Brew, has members who have played together for at least six years. “We’re just high

school volleyball players or coaches and we all enjoy competitive volleyball.” The team hosts the tournament annually.

Team Wicked from Williams Lake, Vancouver, Kamloops and Quesnel proved to be a skilled and classy team right to the 35+ Men’s final during which they downed the 100 Mile House Old Stars, 11-4 for the championships and the division bragging rights. Greg Lund, a key tournament co-ordinator, applauded their style.

Pistons Myles Casper did his best to keep up with the speedy Ardiel during the Lillooet tourney last weekend.

Premiers form health care groups Carole Rooney Free Press

Ottawa’s apparent intent to take a handsoff approach to the 2014 health accord has escalated concerns since the federal Conservative government announced it will cut health-care transfers to the provinces. While the premiers have been seeking further negotiations with the federal government on the terms of the deal, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has remained adamant the provinces will get no additional money for health care from his government. Due to the higher costs of an aging population, the new per-capita healthcare plan will reduce British Columbia’s funding beginning in 2014, estimated to cost the province $256 million a year. By 2018, the health transfers will be based on economic expansion, including inflation, beyond a three per cent baseline.

Christy Clark Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says Premier Christy Clark “agrees” the nominal GDP (gross domestic product) should be used to set the annual rate increase, but also believes the formulas need to be adjusted to reflect B.C.’s growing number of seniors. Meeting in Victoria recently, the first ministers discussed how to respond to the federal government’s reductions in healthcare transfers. “The 13 premiers agreed that the unilateral process used by the federal government to determine federal funding for health care was unprecedented and unacceptable,” explains Barnett.

“The premiers agreed, apparently, that there needs to be dialogue on the funding formula by all national leaders.” After the meetings, the premiers announced a new Health Care Innovation Working Group, co-chaired by Prince Edward Island Premier Robert Ghiz and Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, will pursue ways to meet the provinces’ health challenges. The group will seek ways to meet new challenges in the health-care systems, including the needs of seniors, patients with chronic diseases and northern populations. Barnett notes that from her own

viewpoint, the formula for health transfers should consider geographic and accessibility factors, as well as multiculturalism, in addition to aging population demographics. If considering geographic locations can provide more home support, not only is the patient’s lifestyle much better, it can save money, she adds. “In the costs of home support versus building residential and long-term care facilities, there’s no comparison.” The Health Care Innovation Working Group will report on its progress at the July 2012 Council of the Federation annual meeting in Halifax.

By Diana Badke Do you cringe when you think about preparing your taxes? Are you feeling overwhelmed at the thought of digging out your shoe boxes full of coffee-stained receipts? Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy (CCPL) is hosting its Financial Literacy Café at the GROW centre, 105-475 Birch Ave., on March 9 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. This free workshop will cover the benefits of financial literacy, with a focus on ways to make filing your income tax less stressful. Learn how to prepare your taxes, where and when to file them and what’s new. You will also be introduced to filing your taxes online using Turbo Tax. Learning some simple

Diana Badke techniques can help you to be organized and prepared to face tax time. The guest speaker at the café will be Tracy Macaloney of Macaloney & Associates, Accountants. In advance of the café, she has shared these three tax tips: • File a tax return even if you do not have taxable income; it is important for many other benefits.

• Keep a record of out-of-town travel for medical reasons, as they might be eligible for tax credits. • Some other taxdeductible medical expenses include prescriptions, dental work, eyeglasses, chiropractor fees, premiums paid to extended health plans and out-of-province/ country medical insurance. I will also share some ideas about organizing your paperwork and preparing for tax time, as well as introducing some community and educational resources. Everyone is welcome to attend this free workshop. For more information, phone me at 250-7068542. Diana Badke is the CCPL financial literacy co-ordinator.

Country Legends, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash, a Tribute, comes to Martin Exeter Hall on March 11, at 7:30 p.m. as a stop on its 10-city British Columbia tour. Tribute artists, Sara-Jeanne Hosie as Cline and David James as Cash, along with his Big River Band will also be making stops in Campbell River, Nanaimo, Williams Lake, Quesnel, Chilliwack, New Westminster, Vernon, Trail and Cranbrook. James does up to 100 shows a year and says he’s been turning people into Johnny Cash fans all

along the way. “Lots of people say they close their eyes and can’t tell the difference when they hear me. I’m a little more handsome than the original, but very similar and have lots of the same mannerisms.� He adds Patsy Cline fans are in for a real treat. “Sara-Jeanne is amazing. She’s head and tails above anyone else I’ve heard do Patsy.� The duo has also played in larger centres, including Lethbridge, Alberta and at the Vancouver Shark Club. Tickets for the show are $35 and they are available at Donex (cash only).

David James is a convincing Johnny Cash in the Cash and Cline tribute slated for March 11 at Martin Exeter Hall.

Tips to reduce Cabin fever workshops coming the risk of falling Carole Rooney Free Press

Approximately 30 per cent of older adults fall at lease once each year. Unfortunately, an injury, such as a fracture or sprain, will occur in 50 per cent of those falls. This, in turn, can result in a new disability or loss of independence. The good news is many falls can be prevented. The Physiotherapy Association of BC has put together a few tips to help keep British Columbia’s seniors on their feet and moving for life: • Daily physical activity will help to improve your posture, muscle strength and balance. Enroll in a Tai Chi, yoga or supervised exercise program. Your physiotherapist will recommend therapeutic exercise that’s right for you. • Have an annual physical assessment with your physiotherapist to detect impairments to your balance. Also, ensure you visit your doctor for an annual physical and have your vision and hearing checked to help you keep tuned-in as you move around. • Wear a good pair of lace-up shoes that will support your feet and ankles, and avoid high heels and slippers because they can increase your risk of slipping and losing balance. • Aids, such as canes or walkers are important to help maintain balance both inside and outside your home. View them as tools to help you keep active, not as signs of weakness. To learn more about how physiotherapists keep British Columbians moving for life, visit movingforlife.ca.

People in the South Cariboo and beyond can see spring is around the corner when the bluegrass musicians gather in 108 Mile Ranch. The Ninth Annual 108 Cabin Fever Bluegrass Workshops take place March 28-April 1 at The Hills Health Ranch. Organizer Rosetta Paxton says any musicians interested in registering should sign up soon, as once again she is getting calls from interested folks from across North America. This year, seminar leaders

include band members from the Foggy Hogtown Boys, 5 On a String and Bluegrass Etc., as well as other musicians, Jason and Pharis Romano, Trent Freeman, Bob Underhill and Ivan Rosenberg. “We are so fortunate at our camp to have such professional seminar leaders from all over, and who are so well recognized in the industry.� The Friday night instructor’s concert is open to the public and there is a $15 admission fee. It is always a packed house, so if you would like tickets be sure to pick them up early at The Hills Health Ranch, Paxton says.

Bluegrass music instruction is offered for those who can play instruments, such as rhythm and flat-pick guitar, dobro, banjo and mandolin, as well as for the all-important element of vocals, she adds. Once again luthier David Sohn will lead a workshop on mandolin making and there are special workshops this year for setting sound, the Nashville Number System and instrument care and maintenance. For more information, visit the website at www.bcbluegrass.com or call The Hills Health Ranch at 250-7915225.

Child-care fundraising ‘mm mm’ delicious Heather Nelson Free Press

The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre’s (CFEC) Child Care is saving Campbell’s products, including labels, lids, and UPCs (barcodes) as a fundraising effort. Every item is worth at least one point and the points raised can be traded for educational products, says CFEC Child Care supervisor Lynda Porter “Labels can be mailed in or dropped off to our day-care centre on Cedar Avenue or the CFEC

office on Birch Avenue. “Different products have different requirements. There’s a whole list of items on the website at www.labelsforeducation.ca.” The fundraising effort will be ongoing, Porter says, adding they will redeem their points, as they go along for educational products, ranging from toys to sports equipment, when they have gathered enough points. For more information, call CFEC at 250-395-5155, or go to www.labelsforeducation.ca for a list of eligible products and what to save.

Province seeks pine-beetle reforestation partners Private investors are being offered a chance to create forestry jobs, fight global warming and reduce their carbon footprint under an innovative silviculture partnership sponsored by the British Columbia government. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) from parties interested in replanting Crown land damaged by wildfires, pine beetle and other factors not related to commercial timber harvesting. The RFP is available at: www.bcbid. gov.bc.ca. Interested parties have until March 8 to submit their proposals. Program partners, including banks, carbon finance companies, silviculture firms and First Nations and others, can generate significant carbon credits, which they will be able to sell on the open market as the carbon storage value of these replanted areas increases over time. For the 2012 planting season, the MFLNRO is targeting between 500 and 2,000 hectares of Crown land, with plans to increase that

to as much as 10,000 hectares annually by 2015. Investors will be responsible for the long-term maintenance and monitoring of their projects. It’s estimated that a 1,000-hectare forest carbon restoration project would cost $1 million to $1.5 million and store an additional 160,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide from enhanced tree growth over its 70-year lifespan, creating 12 silviculture jobs in the near term and up to 100 forestry jobs in the long term. As an incentive to investors, the Pacific Carbon Trust, a Crown corporation,

has allocated space in its offset portfolio to purchase up to 100,000 tonnes of carbon credits generated from this request for proposals. Forest companies are required by law to replant areas where logging has occurred, including beetle-damaged areas where trees have been commercially harvested. However, B.C. has approximately 600,000 to 800,000 hectares of wildfire burns and pine beetle-damaged timberlands that cannot be commercially harvested and have been deemed eligible for forest carbon restoration projects.

Jim will be missed, in a special way, by each and every one of his family and friends.

RICHARDSON Kimberly Anne nee Trueit Jan. 5, 1961 - Feb. 19, 2012 It is with great sorrow that the family announces the passing of Kimberly, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Kim was known for her drive and persistence as a restaurateur in Worsley and Hines Creek, Alta., but it all began at the Coffee Corral in the 108 mall with her mother Marina and sister Wendy. Kim is survived by her devoted and loving husband Dale Richardson of Worsley; their two children: Rainy and Lesley and four grandchildren. Kim will be greatly missed by her father, Cliff Trueit and her siblings: Sandra, Cliff (Bernadette), Wendy (Scot), Trevor (Crystal), Tara (Ron); extended family and many friends. She was predeceased by her mother, Marina, and her nephew, Wayne. Kim’s “it is what it is” attitude made an impression on everyone who had the good fortune to meet her! It was Kim’s wish that a service not be held to mourn her death, but that we celebrate her life; passing on her “Love” to her family and many friends.

LAWSON Branden Aug. 18, 1990 - Feb. 18, 2012 Branden Lawson, resident of Beaverlodge, Alberta, passed away on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at the age of 21 years. Branden was born in Edmonton, where he resided for a short time, before moving to Forest Grove, British Columbia. In 1995 Branden and his mother moved to Fort Nelson, where he went to school and spent most of his teenage years. He then moved to Beaverlodge to work, where he met his fiancé Samantha Hynes. They moved back to Dawson Creek, where their daughter Alexis was born and later their son Ryder. Residing then in Beaverlodge, Branden’s greatest joy and accomplishment was his children. He lived large, loved lots and loved life to the fullest. If you were a friend of Branden’s he let you know it. Branden will be sadly missed by his fiancé Samantha Hynes; his children Alexis and Ryder; mother Rhonda McLean; father Rob Lawson; stepfather Mike McLean; sisters Shelby and Chevelle McLean; grandfather Bob Row; great-grandfather Louis Judson; great-aunts and uncles Diane and Wayne Judson, Bonnie and Terry Talarico, Julie Judson; uncle and aunt Randy and Sandy Gauthier; cousins Chris and Kahla Smith, Sean and Amanda Judson, Michelle Judson and Jasmine O’Donald. He was predeceased by great-grandmother Sheila Judson and grandmother Donna Row. The funeral will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 11:00am at St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Beaverlodge, Alberta. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Branden Lawson Trust Fund at any CIBC.

Judges at the 2012 Science Fair included Mitch Campsall and Jody McFee, who listened intently while Nigel Swann explained his “Making Paper” experiment in. Arlene Jongbloets photos

Jeffrey Lamarche describes his Science Fair project “Electrolytes” to judge Ron Graves.

TJ O’Laney decided to do his “Paintball Accuracy” Science Fair experiment, as it’s one of his favourite hobbies.

Students celebrate science Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Science Fair judge Ron Graves quizzes Ryen Oldegbers about his project, “Oil Spill Clean-Up.”

Wesley Silverton demonstrates his “Sonic Tsunami” theory during the Science Fair 2012 at the 100 Mile House Elementary School.

Science Fair 2012 at 100 Mile House Elementary School gave students an opportunity to find the answers to their most mind-boggling questions and have fun in the process. The annual fair, held Feb. 23 at the school, saw the gymnasium packed with science projects, including 32 that had been selected for judging and consideration for the upcoming School District 27 Science Fair. The eight volunteer judges included 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall who was there for his fourth time. “The kids are so inspiring. They come up with the greatest things. I don’t think they’ve ever failed to surprise me.” After careful scrutiny by the judges, nine projects were chosen to move on to the District Fair.

In Grade 4 competition, Ryan Balbirnie placed first with his project, “Cool Candles,” and he will advance to the district competition. Second place went to Jordyn Karl with “Invisible Ink,” and there was a third-place tie between Nigel Swann with “Making Paper,” and Julia Mosher with “Puzzle Fun.” The Grade 5 division saw a joint project, “Mighty Magnets” by Pascal Glanz and Logan McFee, win first place and an invitation to District Fair. Joining them will be the second-place winning duo of Mina Geertz and Caitlyn McLean, with “Hey! Who turned out the Lights?” Third place went to Ethan Fitzpatrick with “Can Soil Clean Dirty Water?” Anya Levermann’s project, “Marbles of Fury,” was the first-place winner in the Grade 6 division and it has qualified for districts. In second place, Ryen Oldegbers also advances with

“Oil Spill Cleanup.” Courtney Cave tied with him for second with “Natural Filters,” but she does not advance. There was a three-way tie for third place with Lydia Kinasewich and her “Hot to Cold” qualifying for districts. Nela Slosorkova with “Freezing Liquids,” and Mikaela David with “Vitamin C in Citrus Fruit” will not move on. In Grade 7, first place went to Wyatt Coulson with “Rust Prevention;” second place was Reid Davidson with “Seeing is Believing;” and third place was a tie between Wesley Silverton with “Sonic Tsunami,” and Mackenzie Menzel with “Mold Slices of Life.” Coulson, Davidson and Silverton qualified for the district competition. The District Fair will be hosted by 100 Mile Elementary on March 8, with public viewing in the gymnasium from 10 to 11 a.m. he awards presentation is at 2 p.m.

Forum is gut-buster funny By Monika Paterson The audience left with smiles on their faces and sore tummies from laughing so hard at the Gala opening production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Feb. 23. If this is any indication, this will be another very successful and hilarious production put on by the 100 Mile Performing Arts Society. Hysterium (Ben Pilger), a brilliantly funny slave to Senex (John Blewett) and his wife Domina (Shelly Carrera), is put in charge of keeping their son, Hero (Ian Levick), away from the Philia (Nicole Weir) a lovely courtesan whom he has fallen in love with and who has

been sold to the warrior Miles Gloriousus (Brian Weir), by Marcus Lycus (Eric Storteboom) courtesan buyer and seller. Pseudolus (Nick Goshorn), Hero’s slave, works creative and funny schemes to get Hero and Philia together in exchange for his freedom from slavery. The laughs just don’t stop throughout the production, so don’t miss out on the fun. Folks have a few more opportunities to see this hilarious production at Martin Exeter Hall. There are performances March 1 and 2 at 7 p.m.; and on March 3 at 1 (matinee) and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at Didi’s, Donex and Curves.

Bentall concert a rare treat

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Juno Award winning singer/songwriter Barney Bentall brings his talent to 100 Mile House on March 17, for the first performance in the 2012 Blues Jazz Concert Series being hosted by Slapback Music Production. Bentall, with Eric Reed on banjo, mandolin and dobro, is expected to light up the South Cariboo Theatre with songs from the past and Bentall’s seventh studio album, The Inside Passage, recorded in 2008. A familiar name in the music industry since 1988 when he formed The Legendary Hearts band, Bentall has gone on to earn status as one of Canada’s foremost musicians. Between 1988 and 2000, his band toured extensively and released five albums and all reached gold or platinum status in Canada. Gail Thorne from Slapback is

Barney Bentall performs March 17 at the South Cariboo Theatre in 100 Mile House.

I’m looking forward to getting going on the whole series and this is a good start.”

Gail Thorne

excited about the show. “This is very, very special to have Barney Bentall. It’s quite a rare thing. “He hasn’t played in 100 Mile House before. He’s probably the star act of the series.” Bentall owns a ranch in the Cariboo, so he’s familiar with the area and is also the driving force behind Barney Bentall and the Grand Cariboo Opry, a variety show featuring some of Canada’s best musicians. The show played last summer at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver and was also aired on CBC TV. The South Cariboo Theatre is currently in the process of enlarging its stage in time for the Bentall concert. Thorne says that great acoustics in the building and good seating all around

should result in a good experience. People can expect to see him perform two sets, 50 minutes in duration each. “I’m looking forward to getting going on the whole series and this is a good start.” Special for the concert series, the theatre will be offering bar service along with the usual snacks in the concession. Thorne says this will not interfere with minors being allowed at the concert. Tickets are on sale now, online at www.slapback.ca or at the theatre box office, Tuesday through Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. for $40, or $50 at the door. People can also contact Thorne for tickets at 250-7915614. The concert starts at 8 p.m. and doors open at 7 p.m. Submitted photo

There’s something fishy going on here!

Amazing Challenge will fill quickly Arlene Jongbloets

The Hospice Amazing Challenge, held last year for the first time in 100 Mile House, was so amazing, they’ve decided to do it again. The event, which is based on the reality television game show, Amazing Race, won’t have participants racing around the world, but they will be driving to specified locations in the South Cariboo, performing physical and mental challenges at each stop and collecting clues and prizes along the way. “That’s about all that can be said,” says John Tutte, president of the 100 Mile District Hospice and Palliative Care Society, which is hosting the event. “The whole thing is a secret and people won’t know where it starts or much else until they get their package on the day of the event.” A m a z i n g Challenge takes place on June 2 and is a Hospice fundraiser during which teams give a $200 donation to enter. The money goes to support the society, and tax receipts will be issued for the entry amount.

Each year, Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary creates a lap quilt in memory of their longtime chief quilter Kay Neil who passed away in 2003. This is in addition to the large quilt they create for the fundraising raffle.

This year’s winner is LA member Sandy Arrance.

Upon completing l under ice training exercises at Lac des Roches, the United States Coast Guard Dive Team members got a special treat on their last day Feb. 2. On a short layover from demonstrating Yamaha snowmobiles, Jamie Moberg offered sled rides around the lake to the members of the team, several of whom have never experienced snow and lake ice, let alone cruising perched atop state-ofthe-art sleds. Several team members also strapped on borrowed skates and enjoyed some pond hockey on Jamie’s rink. One member said, “This was two

similar encounter.

Substantial snow The weight of the heavy snow on the lakes is causing the water to seep up through cracks and holes, creating a hidden layer of slush between the ice and the snow on top. Snow covers all the trails and field in the area with depths ranging from a few inches to several metres where the wind has built magnificent snow drifts. Snow and the plow-

Cougars and critters A small cougar had been sighted at the front doors of residences at the west end of Lac des Roches with tracks to the McDonald rest stop. Two separate sightings of a bobcat or Canadian lynx on the Wavey Lake Road were reported. One sledder thought he was approaching a dropped backpack on the trail until it suddenly rose on four legs and scurried into the bushes.

ing and shovelling of it has become a popular exercise once again and the topic of most neighbourhood conversation. Being prepared Residents are encouraged by Cariboo Regional District Area L Director Bruce Rattray to complete the personal survey offered on the CRD website www.cariboord.bc.ca for emergency planning purposes.

Cariboo Regional District Area G Director Al Richmond and protective services manager Rowena Bastien explained the reason for the meeting. The CRD is seeking specific information from communities concerning resources, including hazards, road access, land use, recreational areas, active ranching operations and how to be prepared to evacuate if required. This was a very important meeting and it was suggested that if other meetings are held, 108 Mile folks should attend.

“Don’t Dither, Call Diether”

Cook Off family eager for airing The Jensen family of Forest Grove is eagerly awaiting the airing of TV’s Food Network Family Cook Off episode on March 8 at 9 p.m. Marnie Jensen and her daughters, Laura, Emma and Tahsis Jensen, will appear as contestants on the show, which was taped in August 2011.

Marnie says they don’t have anything special planned for that night, as it’s a weekday. “I am sure we’ll rewatch it with friends, especially the Pettman family as they came down to the taping just to cheer us on. “We are pretty nervous to see it. It seems so long ago now.”

ROCHES… from page B8 Burbot fishing Ice fishing is a sure cure for cabin fever at Lac des Roches. While fishing for trout can be productive, night fishing for burbot is particularly pleasant if you enjoy the quiet and solitude that comes with bundling up for chilly temperatures and sitting in the dark. I recently got the notion to try burbot fishing and I’m definitely hooked on this perfect pastime. Armed with suggestions from neighbours and advice from the local

sporting goods store staff, I’ve been out almost every night since, dangling my line in a hole in front of my house. A newcomer to the burbot test, I have told neighbours about daily of the sights and sounds I enjoy for a few hours each night. I’ve watched the stars and the international space station move across the clear sky, witnessed countless satellites, shooting stars and a fantastic display of the northern lights. I’ve sat through wind, hail and

snow storms, keeping warm with double layers of down feathers and hot coffee; been visited twice by a fox; and heard several owls that close enough to be heard over the din of some weekend revelers. Best of all, I have heard the sounds of trees falling in the forest after a squall of wet snow. It provides some exercise, particularly

when a vital piece of equipment, such as the fishing rod, is forgotten. I’ve been assured it will be even more enjoyable when I finally catch a burbot. With its mild white meat, when prepared like halibut, it tastes like halibut, but when prepared like lobster, it is an excellent imitation. Until then, “It is all about the fishing – not the fish.”

Seeds play huge role in food security By Trish Chung Lillooet Food Matters hosted a fine event on Feb. 18 and several interested people from 100 Mile House attended. There is a strong food culture in the area, which once served as the supply stop for pioneers and Gold Rush seekers travelling north. The area still boasts an abundance of tomatoes, peppers, garlic, apricots, salmon, honey and most recently grapes for the new winery. At the gathering, we had the chance to talk to Sue Senger, a local biologist who is extremely knowledgeable about the principles and practice of seed saving and growing. Another interesting

Trish Chung display and local expert was Splitrock native plant nursery owner Kim North, and I purchased some hawthorn tree seeds. Eleanor Wright contributed a lot to the discussions and lent her expertise to

the seeds of diversity project table. This is an organization dedicated to the saving of seeds in all its scientific and humanistic potential. The First Nations gardens and orchard right in town are real gems. It was wonderful to speak with a young woman who works with the project and hear about her growing experiences and interest in commercial garlic production. Several small seed companies had seeds to sell and Mohave Kaplan brought along her seed cleaner and an array of seeds she gathers with Planting Seeds Project in Lytton. Hopefully, we will see Mojave in 100 Mile House soon.

A very good distinction was made in the reference to seed banks. We want to create seed libraries rather than seed banks. Seed needs to be grown out and gathered each year to benefit from the adaptations plants make to grow conditions. These are encased in the genetics of a plant and parent plants. As gardeners we want to assist plants

in the process of adaptation in order to ensure a sustainable food supply. The Horse Lake Community Farm Co-operative will host Seedy Saturday on March 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Valley Room behind The Lodge in 100 Mile. There will be seeds, displays and information, as well as some good local food. Lets get growing.

Letting Go of Clutter HERE’S HOW: New Perspective: Bring a friend, a RE/MAX professional real estate agent or home stager to help point out overlooked problem areas of clutter. When you live in a space, you get used to a space. You don’t see what others see. Trust their advice.

Remove Personal Items: Put away family photos, souvenirs, knick-knacks and personal items. These items are special to you, but the prospective buyer wants to envision their own personal items in your space. So, help them out. Clean, Clear Surfaces: Clear off counters, especially in kitchens and bathrooms, storing away small appliances and miscellaneous personal items. Scrub down the surfaces and perhaps even put out a bouquet of flowers. Create Ease of Movement: Remove and store extra furniture to create open areas that promote easy foot traffic through your home. Potential buyers will be looking for visual clues that your home is well cared for. How much work a house seems to require will impact the offering prices you receive, so it’s worthwhile to ensure that everything is in good working order.

Curb Appeal -Drive By Success!

First impressions can be everything. Many people simply drive by a listing and make a decision based on your home’s curb appeal. So, don’t forget the importance of creating a well-manicured entryway – to entice potential buyers. Maintaining a neat and attractive exterior to your home will show buyers that you take pride in your property.

Front Door: Look critically at your front entrance: does the door or the porch railing cry out for a fresh coat of paint? Polish the door handle and invest in a new welcome mat. Front Porch: If it’s spring or summer, plant colourful containers to Áank your entrance. If it’s autumn, rake leaves. During winter, clear the snow and ice from your walkway. Whatever the season, look closely to determine if any repairs are needed. All loose cement or rotting wood should be replaced. Shine On: Many serious buyers will want to drive by your home after the sun goes down. Remember to ensure that all outdoor light bulbs are turned on in order to show your home in its best light.

If you are able to be realistic with your selling price, everyone wins. A Real Estate Agent is there to help you correctly price your property. Deciding on true market value is where the agent’s expertise will come into play. Prior experience and knowledge will make certain that your property is priced well. Regardless of the original price you paid for the property, or even improvements you’ve made over the years, market value is still based on what buyers are paying for similar properties at the time you put yours on the market. Don’t Lose a Potential Buyer. The rule of thumb is that buyers look at about twelve properties before they make an offer. This will give them a great idea of whether or not your property is well priced. If it’s priced too high, you’ve just lost a potential buyer.

Quick Fixes and TLC

Show Off Storage Space: Clear out closets, basements and garages as prospective buyers are always on the lookout for ample storage space. Now is a good time to box up unworn clothes, toys and personal items for storage or charity. HERE’S A QUICK CHECK-LIST: Bathrooms: Ensure all plumbing Àxtures are clean and in good working order. OutÀt leaky faucets with new washers and clean any visible stains on porcelain Àxtures. Replace old, worn shower curtains and bath mats. Doors and Windows: Spray WD40 on all hinges so everything operates smoothly. Have windows cleaned inside and out. Potential buyers will be estimating their energy costs, so Àx drafts by re-caulking windows and replace exterior doors if necessary.

Walls and Floors: A fresh coat of paint instantly transforms a space, helping it to look neat, clean, and up-to-date. Always Àx obvious wall imperfections like cracks and nail holes, before painting. Steam clean carpets and runners, and repair any chipped or loose Áoor tiles. Atmosphere: Be mindful of the odours left behind by pets and smokers and consider using an environmentally friendly room fragrance to neutralize unpleasant scents. Replace light bulbs and add light Àxtures in dark hallways, including basements, garages and closets.

WE’VE GONE GREEN!

If you’ve priced your home on the high side and later have to lower the price, buyers may wonder what is wrong with your home and lose interest. Pricing your home reasonably the first time is critical to attracting the right buyer at the right time. What you don’t want to do is wind up selling your home for lower than market value because you’ve scared off buyers with your price corrections.
