Local MP speaks out on her party’s use of robocallers Carole Rooney Free Press

Elections Canada is investigating “robocalls” (automated phone calls) that attempted to redirect voters away from polling stations in last spring’s federal election. While it previously declined to confirm investigations in accordance to its usual practices, Elections Canada changed its stance on March 2 after receiving more than 31,000 complaints last week about misleading robocalls and other phone calls. The flood of new complaints arose after it became public that Elections Canada was investigating calls to voters in Guelph, Ontario just before the 2011 election, instructing them to go to non-existent polls. Reports now indicate people in dozens of ridings received similar calls from both automated recordings and live callers claiming to work for political parties. Some were made at inappropriate hours and others were harassing in nature. Fingers are being pointed at the federal Conservative Party direct-

ly because the robocalls came from a company that exclusively contracted to the Tories during the election campaign. Automated dialling service provider RackNine in Edmonton, Alberta has since confirmed its service was utilized to falsely advise voters that polling station locations had changed. Now, federal opposition parties are demanding a full investigation after it was recently revealed that RackNine did campaign calls for various Conservative candidates, including KamloopsThompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod. McLeod confirms her campaign paid RackNine for automatic calling services. However, the local MP says she recorded the message herself to seek volunteers in her riding, included her own campaign phone number and sent it only to those she believed were her supporters. “All parties use automatic calls, and there are a number of different companies that provide that service.” McLeod adds the method is “perfectly legitimate”, but it’s the related message that matters. She did receive some complaints, but explains those were only in regard to her use of a robocaller. “It wasn’t related to the message. It was related to ‘don’t use automatic calls, See McLeod… page 4

Community volunteer Eleanor Nicoll, left, was presented with the Citizen of the Year Award for 2011 by committee head Donna Barnett at the South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce gala awards dinner at the 100 Mile Community Hall on March 3.

Arts advocate is Citizen of the Year A longtime advocate and promoter of the arts in 100 Mile House, Eleanor Nicoll, has been named Citizen of the Year for 2011. Nicoll received the prestigious award at the 18th Annual South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) Business Excellence Awards gala dinner at the 100 Mile Community Hall, March 3. More than 50 individual nominations were submitted for Nicoll under the award criteria of outstanding contributions of time and energy for the betterment of the South Cariboo community. Nicoll says she was

“shocked, surprised and totally honoured” to have won the award, particularly after hearing about the efforts of all the other nominees on stage with her. “My goodness me, everybody has been working so hard. Two of the couples, especially, had done so much that I really didn’t expect to be the one chosen.” Among her many local achievements, she had 30 years of direct involvement with the 100 Mile Festival of the Arts, and was its president for five years until she stepped back last June. One of the many community members who

nominated this exemplary citizen was local musician Anthony Lau who says he did so because of her significant efforts, hard work and involvement with many arts-related activities. He adds Nicoll is also a “nice and kind-hearted lady.” “She is well-deserving to get that award because she is a very humble person, sincere and dedicated to her work.” Despite her numerous contributions to the arts community, SCCC president Vern Peever says he’s never seen anyone so genuinely stunned to win. He says Nicoll clearly

has a lot of respect for the other well-deserving other nominees on the stage with her, and was visibly awed by the honour. As a flute teacher and player, she performed at many local events and taught at the festival, where she frequently played as a student’s ensemble partner. She served on the executive of the 100 Mile & District Arts Council for 10 years, and volunteers at the annual Winter Arts and Crafts Fair, and weekly at Parkside Art Gallery since 2005.

SHORT TA K E S Come Together postponed Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) Amnesty Club’s annual concert, which was slated for today (March 7), has been postponed. Come Together, which is the theme of this year’s annual Amnesty Club concert, couldn’t go ahead as scheduled because of the teachers’ strike. Amnesty Club member Debra Zemanek says the concert has been rescheduled for March 29 and it will be held in the school gymnasium. Come Together will feature a slideshow that was put together by club members. Entertainment will include vocal and instrumental performances, dance and more. There will be two shows at 1 and 7 p.m., and the public is invited to attend.

Business excellence celebrated ENTERTAINMENT Carole Rooney Free Press

The 18th Annual South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards gala dinner evening was a huge success at the 100 Mile Community Hall on March 3. Among the many award-winning organizations, Century Home Hardware aced the evening with two awards, including Business of the Year and Customer Service. With 170 people turning out for the event, chamber president Vern Peever says the awards dinner had the best attendance he has seen, and was also one of the most enjoyable. “It was quite an impressive display of local talent on all ends, both the business and the artistic. It was a good night.” Singer-songwriter Candace Copely entertained the crowd with her lovely voice, and Peever notes a performance by local musicians Anthony Lau on the harmonica accompanied by gui-

The award-winning smiles lit up the stage at the 18th Annual South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards evening at the 100 Mile Community Hall on March 3. These people and their organizations were awarded for their service to the community, as well as the numerous other nominees, are all “winners” in the eyes of the public. tarist Karl Beiteberger was breathtaking and incredible. “I’m usually not a ‘classical guy,’ but you could have heard a pin drop. They did a beautiful job.” Lau dedicated the performance to Citizen of the Year Eleanor Nicoll, who received her award at the banquet, as well as to all the other

worthy nominees for that award. Peever says the hall was a new, more spacious venue for the annual event that has been growing in attendance. This hall provided a more comfortable arrangement for the seating at cozy round tables, and plenty of space for folks to move around to par-

take in refreshments and silent auction. “Kudos to Jeanette McCrea who organized and executed most of it, with lots of help from [chamber manager] Lisa Carr. It was a great job and I think it went quite well.” Carr says the decorations were “awesome” for the western-themed

event and she received many comments indicating everyone had a great time. McCrea was also the master of ceremonies, she adds, and Peever, who was declared Director of the Year, made a welcome speech. The dinner, catered by The Firehouse Diner was delicious, Carr says, adding

all the volunteers, equipment loans and donations for the event are much appreciated. The South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce 2012 Business Excellence Awards went to individuals and businesses as follows:

Preparations almost completed for Relay Heather Nelson Free Press

100 Mile House is one of the 600 communities across Canada included in The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay. Celebrations are in the planning stages with Medal Bearers carrying the medal through the downtown area before arriving at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre (SCRC). The Medal Bearers accompanied by the Rick Hansen Motor home will start at the corner of Exeter Road and Highway 97 at approximately 4:30

Submitted photo

The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay medal will be carried through 100 Mile, March 27. p.m., on March 27. Medal Bearers carry the medal for about 250 metres, says organizing committee chair Ken Mills, starting on Birch Avenue behind Central GM and continuing

through downtown crossing the highway at Airport Road. “The final Medal Bearer is Dianne Bob,” Mills says, adding Bob has the honour of carrying the medal into the last stretch

and bringing it into the SCRC. “She is very active in the community and seems to be involved in almost everything in the area.” The audience will be entertained by interactive karaoke, starting at 4:45 p.m. The hosts are Kari Edle and Audrey Johnson from Soundsharp and Mills says they regularly play at the Farrier Pub and are donating everything for the evening. Ingrid Mapson from the Eclectica Community Choir will sing ‘O Canada’ to start the ceremony

at 5:35 p.m., followed by short speeches from dignitaries. “After the opening ceremony and speeches, folks will be entertained by a sledge hockey game starting at 6 p.m.” “The hockey teams said they’re bringing some sledge “tubs” for the general public to try out. It should be fun.” The entry fee to the ceremony is by donation with all the money going to a local charitable foundation, Mills says, adding he would like people to arrive at 4:30 p.m. to participate in the festivities.

On the morning of March 28, the Medal Bearers will leave SCRC at 10:15 a.m. and proceed down Birch Avenue, so all the merchants can cheer them on, says Mills. The Medal Bearers will then make their way to the 100 Mile Junior Secondary, past the hospital, turning right on Horse Lake Road. When at the intersection of Highway 97, the tour will continue towards its next stop. For more information, call Mills at 250-706-9874 or Donna Bellingham at 250-395-2434.

SPICE UP YOUR! LIFE

Teachers object to strike-ending bill Carole Rooney Free Press

Legislation introduced last week by the Ministry of Education includes a six-month “coolingoff period” in the collective agreement negotiations with teachers. Bill 22 requires a mediator to be assigned by the government with a mandate to find solutions, without resulting in any new net costs, for school districts. The legislation will not impose a new contract, but rather extends the previous collective agreement toward reaching a negotiated settlement or until after the mediator reports

Joan Erb back by June 30 with non-binding recommendations. A ministry release states this mandate includes helping the two sides find agreement on the manner and consequences of class organization. Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Association (CCTA) president

Joan Erb says she is concerned the ministry will do whatever it wants in the end. “Why appoint a mediator if you’re not going to make his recommendations binding? “It’s silly to spend all that money to investigate the dispute and then possibly ignore his recommendations. It’s ridiculous.” Bill 22 requires additional compensation for teachers with classes that exceed the maximum of 30 students in Grades 4-12. The legislation also installs a previouslyannounced fund to address class size and special needs support, to respond to a court deadline in

April 2012 to resolve issues on former Bills 27 and 28. Education Minister George Abbott says Bill 22 includes significant gains that recognize the important role and contribution of teachers. “We’re putting more money into the classroom, we’re improving supports for students and teachers, we’re providing additional teacher compensation where class size exceeds the student limit, and we’re restoring the opportunity to bargain class size and related matters.” This includes the $165-million Learning Improvement Fund, he adds.

MCLEOD… from page 1 use personal calls if you want to make contact with me’.” Meanwhile, Liberal Leader Bob Rae has released comments stating the fraudulent robocalls last year were “designed to stop tens of thousands of Liberal voters from reaching the polls.” He adds it’s an attack on the principle of free and fair elections. “The consequences are clear. The Conservatives

won their majority by fewer than 7,000 votes across 14 close ridings – sometimes by a margin of just a few dozen votes.” McLeod notes her Conservative Party has strongly stated it does not endorse the problem of voter suppression or the kinds of activities that occurred in Guelph. It is part of the integrity of a party campaign to ensure messages conveyed are “ethical, upfront

and transparent,” she says, adding the federal Conservative Party has strongly stated it “neither condones nor was part of this”. Noting the federal NDP recently used a robocaller to poll public opinion on a proposed crude oil pipeline expansion to Vancouver, McLeod says automatic calls have also been used in her role as an MP to see what her community thinks about

particular issues. However, she remains tight-lipped regarding her likelihood for using robocallers again, but compares that issue to opposing any Internet use because a few people had done something wrong with it. “We have to let Elections Canada do its work and come out with its conclusions, I think, before we make any significant leaps.”

Erb says assigning student education assistants with this money won’t provide for the necessary teaching expertise. Whatever the compensation element refers to under the provinces net-zero mandate, she adds, it won’t be monetary and it leaves too many students still not getting the services they need. “If you’ve got five special needs kids in a class of 30, those five kids deserve one-on-one attention throughout that class. The teacher cannot possibly give them that.” This leaves the special education students struggling and the other children frustrated by a lack of attention for getting help for themselves, she explains.

Open fire prohibition begins April 2 A full month earlier than last year, open fire size restrictions start at noon on April 2 within the Cariboo Fire Centre. The restrictions are an effort to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect the public. Anyone conducting Category 2 or 3 fires must have all the fires extinguished by noon on April 2. The prohibition will remain in effect until Sept. 30 or until further notice. Specifically, this will prohibit: • The burning of any waste, slash or other materials (piled or unpiled) at a size larger than one metre by one metre. • The burning of more than two open fires of any size at the same time. • The burning of stubble or grass fires

of any size over any area. This prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but it does not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest fire prevention bylaws in place and is serviced by a fire department. Before lighting any fire, residents should check with local civic authorities regarding any current prohibitions. Anyone planning to conduct burning should ensure fires are not lit near buildings, trees or other combustible materials. Never burn during windy conditions and ensure you have adequate people, water and hand tools available to prevent fires from escaping. Never leave a fire

unattended. The Cariboo Fire Centre covers an area of about 10.3 million hectares, stretching as far south as Loon Lake to just north of Quesnel at the Cottonwood River. From east to west, the boundaries stretch from the western edge of Wells Gray Provincial Park to the eastern bound-

Province appoints tax analysts Carole Rooney Free Press

The B.C. Liberal government recently appointed an Expert Panel on Tax to analyze business tax competitiveness and make recommendations to the province. The panel will look at ways to make administrative improvements to streamline the reintroduction of the Provincial Sales Tax (PST), but also examine municipal property taxation for its impact on business competitiveness and investment. Cariboo Regional District (CRD) chair Al Richmond says business tax competitiveness needs to be examined as a package because some businesses have indicated they were more competitive under the departing Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) system. As a trustee on the Municipal Finance Authority board, he notes the panel has an “awful lot” of representatives with business backgrounds rather than direct municipal government experience. Richmond adds he is “encouraged,” however, that former Community and Rural Development Deputy Minister Dale Wall was appointed to the panel. He will be able to provide them the reality of municipal government, Richmond adds.

Al Richmond “I know [Wall] very well and he’s certainly well aware of the challenges local government faces when it looks at taxation.” The panel will also look for improvements to streamline the returning PST system, Richmond explains, and what

that will encompass. “I think we are all wondering what the sales tax will look like when it comes out because I don’t believe it’s going to be the same as [it was] prior to the HST.” He notes the province sets industrial/ commercial taxes in regional districts through a multiplier model applied to its residential taxation levels, so CRD taxation likely won’t experience much scrutiny by the panel. Municipalities, however, do have the ability to set their own business tax rates. District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall says his council will be “most interested” in

our taxation rates for all property classes; on both a provincial and regional basis. “The one thing we don’t want to see from this review process is changes to the community’s authority to levy local taxation, or to be restricted in any manner in doing so.” Richmond foresees the panel chair focusing on looking for ways to attract new investment to create jobs and grow the economy, within a balanced budget. “Local government’s are already at a balanced budget; the province isn’t ... there are some very smart people [on the panel], so let’s see what they come up with.”

“The energy that drives the cultural life of a community like 100 Mile comes in large measure from volunteerism. So, it is fitting we publicly celebrate the contributions of time, talent and resources of people like Eleanor Nicoll.” Other nominated citizens were Sheila and Peter Hart,

Darrell Blades, Tom Bachynski, Martin and Margaret Sarich, Graham Allison, Teresa Simpson, Larry Rode, April Roberts, Jeanette McCrea and Lea Smirfitt, all of whom Barnett presented with a certificate to recognize their own community contributions.

AWARDS… from page 1 Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett once again headed the Citizen of the Year committee that reviews nominations and selects the winner, and says the 11 nominees this year is the most she has seen for many years. In addition to many years volunteering for the festival, Barnett explains as the performance program organizer of the 2010 Olympic Games Torch Relay in 100 Mile House, Nicoll was key to the event’s success. Nicoll was also a nurse at the local hospital in the 1980s, Barnett notes. “She was a won-

derful nurse; her good old-fashioned TLC went above and beyond the call of duty, spending time volunteering and helping many seniors [as] an advocate for matters dealing with finances, home care, etc.” Festival co-chair Mary Ann Robertson says it’s important to recognize volunteer work.

Cariboo Regional District crusades for high-level changes Carole Rooney Free Press

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) board recently reviewed five draft resolutions for submission to the North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA). If approved by

NCLGA, the resolutions will go to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM), which will decide whether these issues are taken forward to the province. Agricultural fencing While slight

wording changes were requested by the board, chair Al Richmond says the first resolution asks UBCM to lobby the province for provincial funding for ranchers to fence boundaries where agricultural lands abut residential properties.

STRIKE… from page 4 The CCTA president adds she’d “love” for Abbott to sit down in a classroom for an hour and see what is going on throughout the province. Currently, assigning teachers to postings looks first at qualifications, and then seniority kicks in. Erb’s job is to make sure people who have the qualifications and the seniority fill the positions, but she says Bill 22 places suitability first, and seniority third, with the aim for government to take more control of teacher placements. “The ministry wants to make sure they have the teachers who are really keen on 21st Century Learning [technology-

George Abbott enhanced learning] in schools.” The principal will decide if a teacher is a good match for a school, she notes, and if not, qualifications and seniority won’t matter, “It basically undermines our qualifications. It undermines our seniority and it’s all about the gov-

ernment’s and employers’ objectives.” Abbott maintains the legislation is needed because students were suffering under the teacher job action. Erb says parents in the district continue to indicate their satisfaction with the teachers’ ongoing communication on their child’s progress, without the report cards teachers ceased providing last fall. Meanwhile, teachers across the province left the classrooms for three days this week in escalated strike action, which ended today (March 7), but once the legislation passes, any further job action will be deemed illegal with hefty fines imposed.

“Some of the other fencing programs don’t appear to allow them to use the money to [fence land] up against residential interfaces.” This fencing will protect the ranchers from economic hardship due to livestock losses and the residents bordering rangelands from property damage caused by roaming ranch animals. The Crown collects lease fees on rangeland, but does not provide fences or defined boundaries, so the CRD is asking the province to assume responsibility for this fencing. The second resolution suggests asking the province to consider fencing funds for main and secondary highways to also prevent hardship to producers from livestock kills, he notes, but also to help ensure the safety of British Columbia’s motorists. Dangerous offenders The board endorsed a resolution for UBCM to lobby the federal government to enact laws prohibiting the

release of dangerous offenders into small, rural communities without adequate resources to rehabilitate them or to protect its citizens. Dangerous offenders, who are released with conditions attached, can reside in areas where no means of enforcing those conditions exist, Richmond explains. “We need to endeavour to have them released to communities with support services – the RCMP, probation office, counsellors and people like that available.” In small communities without an RCMP detachment, he added, it is “very difficult” to monitor compliance under conditional releases. “There was a guy released in Horsefly and they couldn’t check on his conditions, they couldn’t check if he was complying, so this is basically a spin-off [of that].” Water protection Another resolution will request UBCM ask both the provincial and federal governments to come up with a national

strategy and methods to protect potable water sources and aquifers. “We know watersheds extend over large areas and there needs to be a consistent plan and strategy of how that should be looked after and monitored.” Currently, one region may have a specific plan, while a neighbouring region could differ in its approach to water protection, Richmond explains. The federal government sets the Canadian Drinking

Water Guidelines, so he says the board believes it should also consider setting some kind of a standard to protect the watershed sources of that potable water. Help with weeds The last resolution endorsed by the board was to request UBCM seek provincial support to enlist the aid of the ranching community to control noxious weeds, including supplying herbicide and licensing ranchers to allow them to control weeds on their own range.

their houses he battle between the B.C. Liberal Government and the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation has kicked up a notch. The rhetoric has escalated on both sides. Numbers are being manipulated to provide a presentable front for both sides, as they seek the favour of the general public. Highly paid spin doctors are busy spinning their webs of deceit by twisting truths and glossing over harmful facts. It’s the same old, same old. It is the same two big bullies duking it out in the public arena because both are power-hungry egomaniacs who only care for victory at whatever cost. So who is left to suffer in all of this mayhem? It is the students who are being kicked to the sidelines in the big boy’s game, called “contract negotiations.” This nonsense also negatively impacts the emotions of their parents, and in some cases, the teachers and provincial politicians. The real victims, however, are our students who will be our future leaders. What are they learning from the display of ignorance and intolerance? While the BCTF may be the unionized head of the public teaching profession, we believe its outrageous demands for salary increases and other benefits on behalf of our friendly, neighbourhood teachers are totally out of control and not part of the real world. We believe our local teachers want, and deserve, some more money, but not the world. As for the B.C. Liberals, they’re going to the table offering no money, and at the same time, wanting to strip away teachers’ seniority and other classroom governance. This government appears to be willing to do everything and anything it can to gain public approval before the next year’s provincial election. Are we surprised this is coming from a government that wants to dig itself out of the huge financial hole it dug by forcing the 2010 Winter Olympics and the Harmonized Sales Tax down our throats? The problem is there is no real alternative for the electorate to choose as a replacement.

Budget doesn’t tackle energy costs The Feb. 29 edition of the 100 Mile House Free Press had a number of items dealing with the B.C. Liberal 2012 provincial budget. Each tackled direct interests, including education, health, seniors, but no one spoke of the underlying cause. Not even Cariboo-Chilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse suggested any alternatives. He only questioned the balancing of the books by the next election in 2013. The need to balance the books is self-evident and is only achieved through more revenue or less expenditure. What is not addressed by the legislature is the effect on our economy of ever-higher energy costs and climate change. Current thought in many circles is that we will be rapidly approaching 2008 prices for energy, possibly by summer. That is an economy changer. Current information on climate change indicates that if we don’t begin to reduce carbon inputs by 2015, we will be unable to mitigate the problems that will result. Unless these issues become part of government and individual thinking, we cannot hope to solve budget issues.

JACK WITTY

GUEST SHOT The idea of alternate green energy possibilities to drive our economy is simply an idea. There are currently a billion vehicles on the roads of the world and the shear logistics of replacing these vehicles with green energy vehicles can’t be done in the time required to ensure our economy can grow and prosper. The current objective of jobs and growth, in the light of highenergy costs, is probably a myth. We are on the leading edge of a fundamental change of the same magnitude of the start of the industrial revolution. All this to say government’s fear of driving business out of province by adding additional taxes may be real. However, it is equally true the general population, facing everincreasing costs, driven by basic energy increases, is hardly in a position to see much in the way of tax increases. So if you can’t increase income, then we have to decrease expenditure. But, and it is a big but, there

are certain absolute needs in our society: education is the key to the future and to our children’s and grandchildren’s ability to survive in a very changed world from the one most of us have known all our lives. Another absolute is health care, for all of us need help to maintain good health. Some would argue that roads and bridges need to be in the must category, but with energy costs rising, this may begin to lose its priority. As one looks at the number of responsibilities of government (of any stripe) and all the things we have to pay for, we need to ask if we have to do everything we want to do. In the end it is time we all took extreme energy costs and climate change into account and recognize that the days of perpetual growth and keeping up with inflation may be a dream from yesterday. If I were in a position to effect policy, my priorities would be clean water, basic food, health and education. All else would take second place. Jack Witty is a 100 Mile House Free Press reader.

BCTF indoctrinating our kids ENTERTAINMENT

Letters to the editor

Assessment increase seems unfair To the editor: Owners of manufactured homes beware; you may be classified as a onestorey standard house by BC Assessment. Last year, I had an elevated roof constructed over my existing trailer roof and replaced the old siding, which now hides the skirting around the bottom portion of the 1965 doublewide trailer with an addition. Wondering why my 2012 assessment was extremely high, I contacted BC Assessment and attended its review panel hearing, only to find out my mobile home is now treated as a house for tax purposes because it now looks like a house, according to their appraiser. Needless to say, it remains a double-wide manufactured home

underneath its new facelift. The (British Columbia Real Estate Association) would not allow it to be sold as a one-storey standard house, as that would be illegal, and it would not pass (Housing and Construction Standards B.C.) upon inspection. I feel this is an unfair increased value added because most mobile home owners purchase such because they cannot afford a standard house. Although manufactured homes are made to look like houses, they are not constructed as such. I advise you to check the assessment list on the Internet to see if your modified trailer is now assessed a one-storey standard house. Patricia Vredik Lone Butte

Pre-election robocalling deserves answers To the editor: Our minds sometimes have a knack for connecting current events with bizarre memories. Recently, I saw Prime Minister Stephen Harper taunting the Opposition members in Parliament to prove the disgraceful Robocalling affair was connected to his party. He even had the gall to say the Liberals were conducting a smear campaign against the Conservatives. Perhaps Harper is deathly afraid of smear campaigns because he knows how effective they were against Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff. Harper’s antics triggered a bizarre memory.

Maybe you remember Tonya Harding, the stop-at-nothing-to-win American figure skater. In 1994, her ex-husband was involved in an attack on Harding’s rival Nancy Kerrigan. Kerrigan’s knee was injured and she was temporarily unable to skate. Harding was later convicted of conspiring to hinder prosecution of the attackers. I find this very interesting.

VICTORIA – Perhaps the single most ridiculous stunt in the lead-up to this week’s teachers’ strike was pulled at an elementary school here in Victoria. A teacher gave her Grade 1 class an assignment for anti-bullying day: take crayons in hand and write to Education Minister George Abbott, demanding he stop bullying their teacher and address class size and composition. This North Korea-style political indoctrination of six-year-olds was a mistake, according to the local teachers’ union boss, who vaguely indicated the unnamed teacher would apologize to parents. Is this self-serving abuse of teacher authority an isolated incident? My experience as a parent and journalist suggests it is not, and recent events support that. By Friday, students across British Columbia were skipping class in solidarity with their teachers, led by budding campus radicals suddenly conversant with B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) talking points about Bill 22. This left-wing “groupthink” pervades the education system from public schools through taxpayersupported colleges and universities. After a couple of generations of this indoctrination, almost everyone “knows” government under-funding is at the heart of every school problem, standardized testing is an assault on the fragile self-esteem of students, and reducing class size is the top priority for improving educational outcomes. All of this is glaringly false union propaganda, reinforced in classroom “current affairs” discussions.

TOM FLETCHER

BC VIEWS Don’t believe me? Google “Study: Class size doesn’t matter” for the latest on a growing stack of scientific evidence that shows you and your children are being forcefed lies. BCTF president Susan Lambert announced the strike on live TV with a remarkable string of rhetoric about the “Orwellian” legislation that will soon put an end to this teacher tantrum. The government needs to negotiate “clearly, rationally and respectfully,” said the boss of union representatives who have spent the last year insulting the taxpayers’ negotiators by telling them to “go back to your masters” and get a couple of billion more. Clearly? It was the BCTF that announced its work-to-rule plan for the fall and then took the summer off. It was the BCTF that didn’t even present its outrageous 16 per cent wage demand until January, a full 10 months after formal negotiations began, and accompanied it with a false costing. Orwellian? At a sparsely attend-

ed rally on the legislature lawn, local teachers’ unions marched out their most strident tame trustee to demand the government “come to the table” with billions. One teacher in the crowd held up a large sign adorned with three mug shots: Premier Christy Clark, ex-premier Gordon Campbell and Benito Mussolini, to illustrate a multiplechoice question about “fascism.” This teacher should be assigned to write an essay about the Italian dictator’s formative years, and his schooling in particular. In Vancouver, a protesting teacher got big media play, holding up a sign proclaiming that “it’s not about a wage increase, it’s about classroom conditions.” This too is a lie. The BCTF trotted out its standard “children first” rhetoric, then tabled its breathtakingly out-of-touch benefit demands. It doesn’t take a math teacher to see what its $2 billion wage and benefit fantasy would actually do to classroom conditions. For his part, Abbott started out pretty keen about students and parents heading down to occupy their local school and replace striking teachers with volunteers for a couple of days. But he changed his tune after the support staff union started grumbling about parents colouring too close to their craft lines. One fight at a time, I guess. The next one will be over teacher performance assessment and the chokehold of union seniority on school jobs.

Volunteers sought for Relay For Life To the editor: 100 Mile House has hosted the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life for nine years. The event has consistently provided the community with an opportunity to come together and support those battling cancer, as well as to show support to people who have lost loved ones to the disease. It is a day of solidarity against cancer. It is an event that happens because many volunteers come together with a united goal. These volunteers do not require any special skills or talents — they simply care enough to make it happen. 2012 marks the Renewal of Relay For Life. Many who have volunteered countless hours during the

past 10 years would like to “pass the torch” and new volunteers are needed. Cancer’s greatest ally is apathy, and if we stop caring, cancer wins. • I know the residents of 100 Mile House and area have not stopped caring. • I know those who have participated have experienced the “community hug” that happens at a Relay For Life event. • I know the funds raised change lives for the better by providing programs, including the Cancer Information Service, the Cancer Connection Peer Support program, the Financial Support program, welcoming Lodges to stay in while undergoing treatment away from home, and Camp Goodtimes for children and teens. • I know the funds raised save

lives by educating citizens in cancer-prevention strategies, advocating to government for healthy public policies, and by funding cutting-edge research. • I know many people, each doing a small task, can make a really big difference. Please help us continue the tradition of caring in 100 Mile House. Volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. Please contact me and find out about the variety of ways the Relay can use your help (whether you can spare one hour or 50) at 1-800-656-6426 (days) 1-250-9191182 (evenings), or lstevenson@ bc.cancer.ca Lori Stevenson Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life

Newsbeat Around the province Taseko takes legal action WILLIAMS LAKE — Taseko Mines Limited filed a Notice of Civil Claim against the Western Canada Wilderness Committee Thursday (March 1), accusing it and its outreach director of defamation. The claim accuses the committee and outreach director Sven Biggs for “a series of false and defamatory statements concerning Taseko and its proposed New Prosperity Gold-Copper Project.” Russell Hallbauer, CEO of Taseko, issued the following statement: “Taseko welcomes a full, thorough and open process to evaluate the merits of New Prosperity project, which we believe will be a big win for British Columbia, First Nations and Canada. We cannot, however, stand idly by when certain parties, such as the Western Canada Wilderness Committee, mislead the public about the project. The facts do matter. All parties benefit from an open and fair discussion of the facts, not false, misleading and harmful inaccuracies. The Wilderness Committee has also issued a statement following Taseko’s claim. “We are very disappointed that this mining company has chosen litigation instead of fair and open public debate,” said Joe Foy, national campaign director for the Wilderness Committee in a news release.

We are always available to help you! Bad dreams can sometimes interrupt a good night’s sleep. Sometimes, these nightmare can be caused by your medication. Vivid dreams can be caused by antidepressant drugs and can be lessened with a change in dose or drug. Check with our pharmacists if you have a concern about sleep and your medications. Our urine is a good source of information about possible problems in our bodies. Sometimes, too much protein gets excreted in the urine and this may need further evaluation to rule out kidney disease. If the urine is foamy in appearance, it could signify protein content. This is called proteinuria. Men are notorious for not seeking timely medical advice. Evidently, married men who are experiencing a heart attack arrive at emergency units more quickly than single men even when their spouses weren’t present at the time. They didn’t want to face any recriminations for being slow getting medical help. Many people aren’t aware they can ask the pharmacist for advice on non-prescription medications.

Weather taking its toll on drivers POLICE REPORT 100 Mile RCMP responded to 66 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Over embankment On March 3, 100 Mile RCMP responded to a single-vehicle incident on Highway 24 near Bell Road at Bridge Lake. The female driver of a Toyota Matrix had left the road and gone down a 20-foot embankment. Emergency crews removed the driver and she was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Damage to the vehicle is estimated at $15,000.

Weather and road conditions were believed to be factors in this incident. Two vehicles in the ditch On March 1, 100 Mile RCMP responded to a two-vehicle incident on Canim Hendrix-Lake Road near Gateway between 8 and 8:30 a.m. The driver of the first vehicle, a Ford Explorer, lost control on the road surface and slid backwards into the ditch.

Chartreuse Moose owner Lorene Lake says she recently received a fax from Dr. Marcus Williamson to cater to 150 people for his father’s birthday party. “The fax said the sender was deaf and couldn’t speak on the phone, preferring to communicate by fax,” says Lake. “There were a few things that made me query the legitimacy of the letter and I threw it away.” Explaining that not only did the sender sign the fax “Dr. Marcus,” she says it wasn’t very professional looking. At home that evening, Lake mentioned it to

her husband, Morris, who did a web search and discovered this type of scam has been going on for some time. The fax instructed Lake to add a delivery service charge to the total of the catering bill, using the credit card number provided. The doctors’ instructions further noted a private courier would pick up the food and directed Lake to pay the courier $500 in cash, which was the added amount on the bogus credit card. Not only is the business out the money they pay to the delivery service, they are also out the costs of all the prepared food, says Lake. “I just wanted to get the message out there, to warn other restaurants. It’s tough enough during these economic times.”

Seatbelt use absolutely necessary The BC Coroners Service (BCCS) is urging all drivers and passengers in motor vehicles to use their seatbelts at all times. The BCCS has just completed a detailed study of fatal motorvehicle crashes in the Interior that shows a high proportion of those who died were not wearing seatbelts - with devastating results. Although numer-

ous studies by the RCMP and Transport Canada show that at least 90 per cent of British Columbians wear their seatbelts, the BCCS study showed fewer than 60 per cent of those who died were wearing them at the time they crashed. The BCCS study looked in detail at fatal motor-vehicle crashes for 2010 in the Interior (crashes involving

motorcycles, cyclists or pedestrians were not included). Of the 85 fatalities, 47 per cent were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash, 41 per cent were definitely not, and seatbelt usage was unknown in 12 per cent of the cases. The BCCS is continuing work on similar studies in other regions of the province.

On Feb. 29, 100 Mile RCMP, with the assistance from the North District Integrated Marijuana Enforcement Team and other support units, executed a search warrant pursuant to the Controlled Drug and Substances Act on a residence on Saunders Crescent at 103 Mile House. Technicians from BC Hydro, Fortis Gas and the 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue were required to assist in making the residence safe for investigators to process the scene. Some 294 mature marijuana plants and five kilograms of harvested marijuana were seized along with pot production equipment and a hydro bypass. The street value of the seized marijuana is estimated to be $170,000. One male was arrested inside the residence. Charges of production of marijuana and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking are being recommended to Crown against a 28-year-old resident of Surrey.

Private sector will lead way in global economy To the editor: The European debt crisis and ongoing economic malaise in the United States have captured the attention and concern of many. People are rightfully worried and they are wondering where the global economy is headed and what the future holds for them and for all of us. Clearly, we are in a time of great change and, hopefully, we can get through it peacefully and co-operatively and emerge with a stronger, more resilient and equitable global economy. The economies of the Asia Pacific, and particularly China and India, have certainly grown at an incredible, almost unbelievable, rate in the past several years. In the globalized world economy of the 21st century, however, these countries do not exist in isolation from Europe and North America any more than we exist in isolation from them. Moreover, their fossil fuel

energy use patterns, which are multiplying rapidly alongside their economic growth, bring serious environmental and carbon emission issues to the forefront for everyone. The ray of hope is the profound undercurrent of technology change that is also taking place in the global energy sector. Trillions of dollars are being invested in renewable and clean energy infrastructure worldwide. Modern economies are inseparable from energy issues, and energy issues are inseparable from environmental issues. The private sector understands this better than any other sector and is leading the way by aggressively retooling the world’s energy infrastructure and setting the stage for the improved and renewed global economy that will inevitably emerge from the current uncertainty.

Newsbeat New trails will be set up for wheeled devices TRAILS… from page 5 Board chair Al Richmond says the CRD has previously applied to the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Committee (CCBAC) for funding, as well as for some grants from provincial recreational reserves to improve and/or extend local trails. “We’re trying to leverage all the money we can to make this work, along with the money some of the groups [already] have, and trying to make it into a much larger project than it could be with supporting funding from just one or two [sources.]”

The trails will be located in partnership with local groups at the 100 Mile Woodlot Demonstration Forest Trails at 99 Mile (with the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium); the wetlands viewing area at the Interlakes Community Hall (with the Roe Lake Recreation Commission); the Felker Homestead at Lac la Hache (at the South Cariboo Garlic Festival grounds); and the 108 Greenbelt trails (Sepa Lake extension to 108 Heritage Site). All the new trails are designed to accommodate people with low-mobility, wheelchairs, walkers and other wheeled devices, such as baby strollers.

An old building, a small place in history FOREST GROVE AREA Marianne Van Osch 250-397-2625

grover@bcinternet.net

On the way to Ruth Lake, a few kilometres from Forest Grove, a small weathered building stands close to the road, just before Becker Ranch. For a few years in the late 1940s and early ’50s, this building was a busy general store. The house on the crest of the nearby hill is on the site of the Becker family homestead. Louis Judson moved the original house to a new site several hundred yards to the right where it eventually burned. Executive elected On Feb. 13, the Forest Grove Recreation Society (FGRS) held its annual general meeting and election. The new executive includes president Fred Saenger, vicepresident Richard Bergen, secretarytreasurer Lorna Faulkner, and directors, Doug Smith,

Alan Faulkner and Dale Gent. The FGRS incorporates the Ball Club, a Cemetery Committee and the community hall complex, which includes the library and curling rink. With its convenient parking area, the hall is ideal for weddings, reunions and entertainment functions. It has a large capacity and the two kitchen sections have been updated in recent years. For information and rentals, contact Lorna at 397-2622. Society meetings are held on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the hall. Bottle drive Please start saving your bottles and cans for a bottle drive to be held on March 31. The students from Forest Grove Elementary School are raising funds for class trips in June. The senior students are travelling to the Okanagan Science Centre in Vernon. The primary grades will visit the Kamloops Wildlife Park. The students will be going door to door with their parents and volunteers. If you live outside the Grove, call Heather at 397-2991, or Richard at 397-2631 for a pickup.

The old store at Becker Ranch on the road to Ruth Lake has some stories to tell. Women in Motion The next time you watch a grader pushing its way up your snow-clogged road or notice a sand truck rumbling by, there might be a woman at the wheel. At the present time, there are two women working for Interior Roads as truck drivers and grader operators. Michelle Sanford from 100 Mile has been working for the road maintenance contractor for five years. Jayne Clements from Bridge Lake is a newer employee. The Grove has been part of her territory this winter. Interior Roads foreman Wayne Durk praised the work of

the two women. “We have been opening up this industry to female workers and it has

been going very well. It would be a good career for girls to consider.” He added the

Teacher Tammie Ozanne did an amazing job organizing the students at Horse Lake Elementary in a fundraiser on Feb. 27 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon. Incorporating the educational component of healthy living into the lives of students, as well as giving back to one’s community for a good cause, brought out the enthusiasm and excitement for this event. With some lively music, students participated in skipping, basketball and hula-hooping. They were encouraged to bring in cash donations from family and friends and collected a whopping $2,735.80. Fun day Kyra Hopson’s Grade 6/7 class held a fun day on Feb. 24 that found students participating in a lot of fun activities. There was a fishpond, bowling, hockey shooting, face painting and other fun events. They made $500 that will help pay for their ski trip to Mt. Timothy on March 8. Potluck supper The Lone Butte – Horse Lake Community Association held a potluck community supper March 4 and there was a good turnout. This is a great way to meet other people in our community and share some great food. Organizers are hoping to make this a regular event. Call the writer for

The community hall is in need of some substantial repairs, so all proceeds from this dance will be used directly toward this project. Mark Allen will be playing, so it is sure to be a good

Memories shared On the afternoon of Feb.19, memories were shared; tears were shed, stories swapped and laughter exchanged in honour of Hans Griese, longtime area resident and woodman of Lone Butte.

Good fishing There was a great turnout for the annual Horse Lake Fishing Derby on Feb. 26. Some 180 tickets were sold in support of the event with about 120 fishers participating in the derby. Several young participants won top prizes, including Jeremy Pierre, 11, bringing in the prizewinning 14 lb. 4 oz. lake trout for a $300 prize. Liame Edle, 9, brought in a 1 lb. 7 oz. lake trout for second-place prize of $100, and Shawn Altmannshofer took

third with a 1 lb. 11 oz. laker. In the rainbow trout category, Gary Oling took home first- and third-place prizes with catches of 1 lb. 12 oz. and 11.5 oz. Russ

Phillips reeled in the second-place catch, 1 lb. 7 oz. There were many theories on the next category, but, unfortunately, there were no kokanee caught this year.

Ottawa: Siloxane D5 not harmful to environment On Feb. 29, federal Environment Minister Peter Kent announced the federal government has decided Siloxane D5 is not harmful to the environment. He said the decision fol-

lows a thorough analysis of the Siloxane D5 Board of Review’s report, all existing available scientific information, and ongoing international regulatory activities.

Decamethylcyclopentasiloxane (D5) is an odourless, colourless liquid found in a number of personal-care products, including deodorants, antiperspirants, cosmetics,

shampoos, and body lotions. It is also used in the production of silicone polymers and may also be used as a dry-cleaning solvent and in industrial cleaning.

Canadian Collectors Road Show Heather Nelson Free Press

Are you cleaning out your closets or downsizing? Your old coins, grandma’s silver, or great-auntie’s ceramic pitcher may be worth some real money. To find out, check out The Canadian Collectors Roadshow, which is coming to town, March 8-11, at the Ramada Inc., 917 Alder Ave., from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. “We’ve been travelling all through Canada looking for treasures,� says Canadian Collectors Roadshow spokesperson

Eric Dvorkin. “Some people may be sitting on their stuff waiting for the right time to sell; well, now their wait is over.� The most popular items are gold and silver coins, Dvorkin says, adding the market for precious metals is at an all time high. Folks have jewelry boxes with various items of gold and silver and may not have use for them, he says, adding that now would be a great time to find out the value. Items to bring include gold jewelry and coins,

silver coins, sterling silver and collectibles. “There are still rare coins out there. If a person has silver coins dated before 1968, they may be able to leave our show with some serious money in their pockets. “For instance, a 1948 silver dollar could be worth between $500 and $10,000 depending on the condition.� Dvorkin notes there were only 19,000 coins made that year. War memorabilia is very popular, including medals and bayonets, he says, adding that oil and watercolour

paintings, as well as native art have great value, too. “We appraise and buy different antiques. The value is determined by its condition and how many of that particular item was made. Of course, brand-name items, such as Tiffany, Faberge or Moorecraft would give it more value.� There is no charge and no appointment necessary to the Roadshow. People are welcome to bring in their collectibles and the Roadshow experts will make an offer if there is interest in it. If people accept the offer they get paid immediately.

Free skills training for northern union workers Carole Rooney Free Press

Essential skills training is being offered to members of United Steelworkers Union (USW) Local 1-425 in 100 Mile House, at no cost to the employees. The Northern Skills Training pilot will provide $2.9 million for forestry and mining workers during the next 18 months through the CanadaBritish Columbia Labour Market Agreement. The project is targeted for the 840 union members throughout the North, from 100

Mile House to Fort Nelson, who can obtain further training toward potential advancement in their field. The contract for the training operations in 100 Mile House is Horton Ventures Inc., which will be providing the program services to over 180 union members residing in the area. Horton Ventures CEO Anny Horton says her staff is pleased to be part of the project. “We’re happy to be working together with USW to provide this service to the community and

upgrade the skills of some of the local mill workers and other members.” Project co-ordinator Terry Tate says union members who live in 100 Mile may apply for the training, regardless of the mill or mine location

where they work. Travel expenses and/or a partial stipend for loss of wages may apply in some cases, he adds. The project has been modelled after similar programs in the North, Tate says, adding he was

pleased with the success of those to help workers advance in their industry. “It’s fairly unique in its model because it not only works with essential skills but also supplies the tools they need as they move forward.”

Technology will be used extensively for an online learning component and, where possible, for workers in remote locations to receive training off-site and facilitate monitoring of their individual results, he says.

To apply for the NST Pilot, USW 1-425 members can contact Horton Ventures Inc. at 2-808 Alpine Ave., or call 250-3955121. For further information, call Tate at 250-563-7712 or e-mail terry@nstrain ing.com.

Connecting girls on International Women’s Day By Karen Beresford This year, the theme of International Women’s Day (March 8) is ‘Connecting Girls – Inspiring Futures’. If we can reach our girls, we can guide them away from some of society’s harmful expectations of them. The powerful message portrayed by media in all its forms - “girls, be obsessed with your looks; guys, idolize what a woman looks like” bombards us.

Statistics tell us the average teenager spends almost 11 hours daily involved with some form of media - TV, movies, music and the Internet – much of it portraying the sexualization of women. Sexualization is what happens to a person when one’s main value becomes sexual appearance rather than intelligence or other qualities. This is what happens to our children watching media images of women

Karen Beresford wearing very little, and having very little to say, or listening to

music about money and a ``hot`` girl on your side as the definition of success. Sexualization is linked to the three most common mental-health issues for girls: eating disorders, low self-esteem and depression. The more images girls see that are sexualized, the more they think that’s what they should strive for. It’s no wonder our girls grow up with

the idea they are not as important as boys. It’s no wonder violence against women isn’t going away. So why are we focusing on girls? It’s because we want to empower girls to question stereotypes and to believe in themselves at a young age. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said improving gender equality creates immediate benefits for families, commu-

nities and, eventually, the world. We want to teach all young people to build strong relationships and to stop the violence in our world. We want them to know what it takes to end poverty, to have new skills, a job, how to attain affordable housing and reliable child care, and how to have the confidence to do what

they want. Everyone is invited to join the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre Society at 102375 Birch Ave. to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8 from 12:30 to 4 p.m., for cake, coffee and conversation. Karen Beresford is the Stopping the Violence counsellor at the Women’s Centre.

THE ROADSHOW IS COMING T0 100 MILE HOUSE: — 4 Days Only! — TERRY INKLER Canadian Collectors Roadshow Staff Writer

T

he Roadshow has been travelling the country in search of hidden treasures and is coming to 100 Mile House to see what surprises comes through the door! They will be appraising and buying everything from gold and silver jewellery and coins to antiques and collectibles. Now is the time to search through those old boxes containing the silverware you no longer want to polish, the jewellery you do not wear and the coin collections you would like to learn more about. The experts at the Roadshow will be more than happy to look through your old treasures, heirlooms and curiosities, free of charge. They will even make you an offer to buy anything their network of collectors are looking for. You could be in possession of something rare and sought after that could earn you a lot of money!!! At an event in Belleville, Ontario, a man named Larry Wilkes brought in an old jewellery box full of items he had inherited from family members, over the years. It contained gold and silver jewellery and even some costume jewellery that is desirable to collectors. “I was very pleased to see that there was this much value in that old box!� Larry commented. “I have never been much for jewellery so I didn’t know what was in there all these years.� Larry traded in his jewellery box for $3,700! Expert appraiser Luc Bergevin explains, “There has never been a better time to sell gold or silver jewellery, flatware or coins. Many people are coming to realize that since the stock market prices of precious metals are now so high there is a lot of money to be made from things that are just collecting dust!� At an event, a woman named Lise Archambault arrived with a lot of silverware. “I’m sorry I didn’t polish it�, Lise said. It turned out that among her unpolished silverware was a rare and beautiful Victorian coffee and tea service made in Lon-

don, England, in 1852 by Charles and George Fox. This set is highly desirable to collectors! Lise also had an assortment of newer sterling silverware. She decided to sell it all and received $5,000 for her items! “I am very happy that someone else could enjoy my silverware... but even happier that I can now take an overdue vacation!� Lisa Joked. At another Roadshow event in Calgary, Alberta, a man named Carlos Miller brought in a sizeable coin collection, which included a rare 1966 Small Bead Canadian silver dollar. “We were really pleased to see that coin, as it is very rare. We purchased it for $6,000. We also purchased an assortment of other coins from him for their silver content,� expert appraiser Lawrence Tyee explained. He went on to say, “more and more people are cashing in their coins for their silver content, which is wise because of how much silver is worth these days!� Canadian coins from 1968 or older and American coins from 1964 or older contain silver. Many older foreign coins contain silver too. If you are not sure, the experts at the Roadshow can quickly let you know which ones contain silver and which ones are rare! The Roadshow buys and appraises all kinds of antiques and collectibles. Appraiser Sandy Johnstone recounts one of her more memorable experiences: “While working in White Rock, B.C. a gentleman came to my table with two boxes full of things. In the second box he had a large collection of cast-iron banks that our collectors love and several tin wind-up toys which are also collectible...especially his tin wind-up Popeye on a tricycle made by Linemar in the 1950’s. It was still in its original box and in perfect condition. What a find! We wound up giving him over $2,000 for these gems! Everyone was super happy!�

The experts at the roadshow will be happy to teach you about what you have, let you know what it is worth and make offers to buy your treasures.

Monical pours first-hand experience into bronze Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Drawing, painting and sculpting come just as naturally as riding a horse for Len Monical of 108 Mile, and he does all with equal ease. Born in 1939 to a ranching family in the state of Oregon, Monical has

been riding and living the life of a cowboy forever. He began fostering his love of art at an early age on the insistence of an understanding schoolteacher who recognized his talent. “She kept catching me sketching instead of doing my arithmetic, but she encouraged me to

“Rainbow Rider,” a bronze tribute to Casey Tibbs, a famous bronc rider from the 1950 era.

keep at it.” He followed his family north in 1962 when they traded their southern holdings for the 30,000acre (12,140 hectare) 105 Mile Ranch. Ranching continued to be his life and he spread his wings to become successful as a competitor on a cutting horse, a cow dog trainer and trial competitor, and a horse trainer. He knew the workings of all three through firsthand experience and it transferred to his artwork, particularly to bronze sculpting that caught his interest soon after 1980. Knowing nothing about the art form, Monical created his first bronze sculpture using brass welding rods and a torch. “I thought that was how they did it, but I finally realized I was wrong when it didn’t turn out quite right.” He continues to hang on to that first piece, and while it’s a little rough, he still managed to create an incredible amount of detail with his clumsy tools and inappropriate materials. Curious to know more, Monical spent a couple of weeks in Florida, learning the proper technique from respected painter

Peter Castonguay photo

A lifetime in the saddle allows cowboy artist Len Monical to put personal experience into his artwork. and sculptor Eugene Shortridge. From that point, he learned how to turn images from his imagination into fine pieces of art cast in bronze. His artwork starts with a simple framework, which is covered with soft wax. The wax is molded and carved with detail into an image of the final product. From this, a plaster mold is made and used to cast the artwork in rubber.

From the rubber form, additional heatproof molds are made which will receive molten metal for the final product. After the metal is poured, set and cooled, it’s ready for the artist to weld various pieces together, file and clean it. Monical says he liked the challenge of learning something new, and before long, he’d perfected his technique to the point where he was commissioned to create several cast bronze tro-

phies for equine events. Perhaps the most important recipient of a Monical sculpture is Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who was presented with sculpture of a cowboy and his cutting horse in action, on his visit to Kamloops in 1983. Monical knew the prince had enjoyed riding a cutting horse on a visit to Douglas Lake Ranch in 1964, so he made him the memento. See MONICAL… page 22

Buckingham Palace displays Monical art MONICAL… from page 21 Then Kamloops mayor, Mike Latta, presented the bronze piece, named “Pay Dirt,” to the royal visitor, along with a letter from Monical. Monical was thanked for his gift in a letter from Buckingham Palace and continues to receive accounts from people who have visited the palace as tourists, and seen his gift on display. The sculpture was one of a limited edition of 15, but according to Monical, he prefers to limit copies to between 10 and 12. After the last planned piece has been cast, the mold is broken so no more can be made. As for how many different sculptures Monical has created, his guess is about 50. His trademark style is one of intense action involving horses, cowboys, ranch and rodeo life, as well as wildlife. He has experienced just about everything he sculpts, so the action and detail come from within. He knows every muscle of a horse and its every stance in a rodeo event. “If you can’t capture the action, all you have is a statue.” Monical says he also knows cow dogs and among personal favourites in his collection of sculptures is a sentimental one that portrays five border collies, Sparky,

Sam, Woofer, Sassy and Rambler, which he raised and spent several years travelling around the Pacific Northwest, showing and competing in cow-dog trials. One piece he is most proud of is a life-size bust of a Rocky Mountain big horn sheep, where the backside is chiseled into a mountain scene. Several of his

sculptures along with many drawings and paintings are on display at Parkside Art Gallery until March 17 in a solo show he is calling “Evolution of Art by Len Monical.” It’s a timeline of his artistic endeavors, which begins at the gallery entrance with some of his earliest sketches and paintings from the 1950s.

In the main gallery, do a circle tour of the room to follow in sequence the refinement of his technique and change of interests. Also on display is the stepby-step process used in making a bronze sculpture. The show includes more than 50 pieces and gallery director Barb Brown says she’s enjoying having a large body of work

by one artist on display. “The show is a diary and evolution of Len’s work and it’s so wonderful to celebrate a local artist. We jumped at the chance to have him show.” “Evolution” is the first show Monical has had at Parkside. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, noon-4 p.m.

Bankers will hang up their hang-ups at show Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Bankers in 100 Mile House are preparing to hang up their office wear and scour costume trunks for outrageous get-ups in time for their annual Banker’s Variety Show. The much anticipated event takes place on March 24 in the 100 Mile Community Hall, with 13 hilarious acts in the show and a dance with music by New Age Entertainment afterwards. It promises to be a great evening of lip synching, dance infused, air band playing entertainment with a lot of laughs throughout.

Local bankers will stretch their limits to entertain at the Banker’s Variety Show at the 100 Mile Community Hall, March 24.

Quality Family Eyewear at Affordable Prices.

Shawna Norton from the Williams Lake and District Credit Union, 100 Mile House Branch, has a hand in organizing the show and she let it slip that she and co-workers will be doing a little bit of Guns and Roses and something from Footloose. “Both are really fun numbers,” she says, adding the performers take the show quite seriously and start rehearsing in January. Tickets are $20 and 300 will be sold, but Norton says they could easily sell twice that number and the tickets go quickly because the attraction is simple. “You get to see your local banker act like an idiot and there are loads

of laughs.” The admission price includes a hearty snack, which Norton says is more like dinner. She adds there is no need to worry about getting home safely after the event, as A Safe Ride Home service will also be available. All of the money raised from the show will be donated to local charities. In the past, Norton says 139 Children’s Fundraising Society was the sole recipient of the funds, but that organization is not operational in the local area this year. People must be at least 19 years of age to attend the show.

The age-old ballet between deer and cougar was danced in the Canim Lake Estates in the wee hours of Feb. 21. The cougar skirted the first home by 20 feet. Walking out the driveway, it picked up the fresh trail of two deer, and followed these into heavy timber. Coming to an overlook of a second home, the cautious cat backtracked, stepping neatly into its old prints, then looping around, spooked the deer, which crashed their way down through a tangle of rotted logs, sending chunks flying. The hungry hunter temporarily gave up the chase, walking by another home to cross Canim-Hendrix Lake Road at Cabbage Corner. Other deer moving in the area made a point of following the cat’s tracks back

Skating carnival brings the house down Ken Alexander Free Press

The 100 Mile House Figure Skating Club’s ice carnival, The Magic Toy Box, was a real treat for the 300 or so skating fans who attended. Not only did the local skaters heat up the ice at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on March 3, but special guest performer Jeremy Ten also set the place on fire. The 2012 Canadian national Senior men’s figure skating bronze medallist was scheduled to skate two solo performances during the show, but Ten graciously put together a third impromptu number when organizers found themselves ahead of schedule. Club president Jenn Plewes says she asked Ten if he would mind filling the gap with “some warm-up stuff or show a couple of jumps or whatever,” and he did it. “He was an amazing guy to work with and the crowd absolutely loved him. [When he skated,] people were whistling, clapping and yelling ‘I

love you Jeremy’. “He was very well received, which, of course, makes us very happy.” Plewes adds the show

went off without a hitch. “It was absolutely amazing. We didn’t have any big problems or anything like that.”

Plewes says the props, put together by Danyelle Howard, were “really pretty.” She adds all of the skat-

ing club members did a phenomenal job and they all had terrific music and dazzling costumes. This year, Plewes says

they decided to purchase their costumes (98 per cent) online. See SKATE… page 28

Most of the girls’ costumes were $10 or $12. It was unbelievable.” Speaking of great values, the club president had nothing but great things to say about what Ten brought to this year’s carnival. She says he showed up in 100 Mile House the day before the event and put on two hour-long clinics - one with the Group Star skaters and the other with the Star skaters. He also volunteered to do

group and individual photos, which he signed and he also put little personal comments on them, Plewes explains. “He signed their skates, there bags or anything they asked him to sign. He was absolutely amazing. “It never seemed to bother him. He just dropped whatever he was doing and did whatever was asked of him.” Plewes says the club was ecstatic about having him come to 100 Mile. “Our girls were so excited and he really boosted our morale. I just can’t say enough nice things about him.”

pleted right after the team’s game, says Cole. When the team and coach arrive at Central GM, he adds, the coach will be given the rules of the Cram and has 10 minutes to complete the task. All players, including the goalie, must be dressed in equipment (except skates and helmet), and at least 14 players and a coach must cram into the car. Parents are encouraged to cheer and take pictures, says Cole. “A completion certificate will be handed out to the coach and the certificate can be redeemed for four large pizzas from Canadian 2 for 1.” “We have eight teams playing in the tournament with five of them from out of town. If they’re looking for stuff to do between hockey games, this would be something different and fun.”

Ask an Expert:

TWO STOREY

How do you paint a brick fireplace? Choose the color you want to paint the fireplace. If you’re overwhelmed by the number of paint colors out there, start with an inspiration point. This can be fabric, such as drapes, upholstery and pillows, or a favorite piece of artwork. Prepare and clean the brick. Use sandpaper to go over the surface of your fireplace to remove any loose pieces of mortar, followed by the vacuum to get rid of the dust and dirt. Use a bucket of soap and water to clean the brick with a firm brush and allow to dry thoroughly. Repeat with the vacuum. Tape off any areas you don’t want to paint. This is an important prep step that will save you a lot of time later if you have to go back to remove unwanted drips or mistakes. Find a primer that you can use on masonry projects. You can use a thick-nap roller (up to 1 inch) to cover the surface, then go back with a brush to cover the grout. Allow the primer to dry thoroughly. Apply your paint color. Using a high-quality latex paint, paint the brick using your roller and brush. For complete and long-lasting coverage, consider applying 2 or 3 coats of paint.

Barney Bentall concert cancelled Carole Rooney Free Press

The Barney Bentall blues and jazz concert planned for 100 Mile House on March 17 has been cancelled. Low-ticket sales leading up to the last two weeks before the event prompted calling off the concert, says organizer Gail Thorne of Slapback Music Production. She adds it would have been a rare treat for such a big-name musician to perform in the community. The Juno-award winning Bentall was to appear with Eric Reed on banjo, mandolin and dobro on

the stage at the South Cariboo Theatre. “It is a shame that it did not go through because it was a perfect venue.” Thorne says it would have been an excellent opportunity to show off the theatre as a new venue for concert productions. South Cariboo Theatre recently renovated and enlarged its stage in time for the concert, but she adds it planned to do that eventually, and she “definitely” looks forward to holding future Slapback Music Production concerts there. Thorne says she also hopes to get

NORDICS… from page 36 eligible to win the big draw prize. Challengers pay $25 at the beginning of the season and log their kilometres on a large chart in the day lodge. Kilometres can only be logged for skiing on the 99 Mile ski trails. “This year, Deb changed it a bit, as she lowered the total kilometres to be logged to 300 to able to qualify for prizes. We are also able to log miles in pairs, so two skiers can add their kilometres together as a challenger, but then need to share any prizes that they win.” The club has weekly draw prizes, she adds, which are selected randomly by picking a day of the week. All those who logged miles on those days, had their names put in for the weekly draw. While she is not too sure how many people/teams signed up this year, Bock says a number of folks have already skied more than 800 km, including Janet Wright. “Please come and enjoy or potluck dinner, or just stop by to say hello if you are unable to stay for

long,” she says. Anyone with questions is asked to e-mail Bock at bruce lauren@shaw.ca.

Barney Bentall to perform here later, she explains. “The agent and I talked about doing it again, and it might not be for another year, but I’m going to do it. “I will probably try to get some financial business backing to help me out because I was doing it entirely on my own.” The concert was intended to be the first in the 2012 Blues Jazz Concert Series at the theatre, complete with bar service. Thorne says she is currently assessing her finances to see where Slapback Productions might go forward with future productions. The concert was advertised in print and radio for eight weeks in 100 Mile and Williams Lake, Thorne notes, as well as having posters and a website to promote

the concert. “People need to realize when you are bringing in a name like Barney Bentall, they have to buy their tickets before the last two weeks.” After only 46 out of 270 tickets available were sold by March 5,

Thorne says she met with the agent and decided to pull the plug due to a lack of production finances. Those who did buy tickets can call Thorne at 250-7915614 to arrange a time and place to pick up their refund.

Love Lives On Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, far as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.

Ralph Armand Ralph Armand Doucette of Kamloops B.C. passed away on Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 81 years of age. He is survived by his loving wife Marie, children Kathy Robinson of Abbotsford B.C., Darlene (Dave) McTavish of Elliot Lake, Ont., Angela (Joe) Batalha of 108 Mile Ranch, B.C., and Clifford (Claudette) Furrer of Kamloops; grandchildren Lezley, Ryan (Melissa), Jamie (Sammie), Billy, Jessica, Sarah (Ryan), Micah and Caleb; great grandchildren Cienna, Gaberiel and Brayden; brothers Fred and Joe, sister Louise, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Alcid, mother Lena, brothers Lionel “Leo” and Lucien “Luke”, sisters Dorales, Deanna and MaryJane, and his first wife, Joan. Ralph was born in Spiritwood, Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver at the age of 13. At 15 he worked with the Deep Sea Merchant Marine where he travelled to many ports around the world. He also worked on steamships up the coast to Alaska. In 1950 Ralph married Joan and together they had two daughters, Kathy and Darlene. During this time he began operating a Gradall. Ralph often commented, “You could do anything you wanted if you had an imagination.” He was also passionate about flying his airplane, a love that began at an early age. In 1989 Ralph met Marie and it was love at first touch. They shared many happy years fishing at many lakes around B.C. Ralph also enjoyed travelling to Yuma, Arizona. And, always a highlight of his summer, was the time he spent at Christina Lake with his nieces and nephews. Ralph will be dearly missed by his family and friends. The family would like to offer special thanks to Dr. Dong and Kamloops Hospice. Memorial donations in Ralph’s memory may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Cr., South, Kamloops BC V2E 2S9, if friends so desire. The Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at the Kamloops Evangelical Free Church, 1132 8th St., with Guy Doucette officiating. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

(NCLGA), says Richmond. “Mitch has served us on the NCLGA for about three years now, and he’s worked himself up to being first vice-president.” The board supported Campsall when he ran for first vice-president, and the natural

next step is president. However, Richmond notes the position still requires a local government nomination and an election process. “The AGM is being held in 100 Mile this year and we’re nominating [the mayor] as president.”
