Funding hike for Bridge Creek bridges and trails Carole Rooney Free Press

A bit o’ Irish... Vicky McIntosh was all set for St. Patrick’s Day after a special afternoon craft class March 14 at the 100 Mile House Branch Library. Youngsters had the opportunity to make shamrock necklaces, pots of gold, bookmarks and hear an Irish story during the free event.

The Bridge Creek Trails in Centennial Park have been approved for a funding influx of $280,000 for improvements, including the waterfalls trail closed since vandals damaged two bridges last fall. District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall says this funding will help the community as a whole. “Being a healthier community is what this grant is all about, and that’s what we’re trying to do… to make it so people will get out, do more walking and utilize the trails.” The province’s Community Recreation Program grant will pay for trail and bridge repairs that the district otherwise couldn’t afford, he explains. “It would have been ‘go or no-go’ with the repairs. We just did not have the funding to repair those bridges without this grant.” The funding will cover 80 per cent of the repairs needed since a rash of vandalism in September. Both wooden bridges situated below

the falls and several signs were damaged, and the park’s soft, wet ground prevented district equipment from performing any repair work last year. The work will also see trails graded for better accessibility, improved drainage and several new signs. “We want to work toward making the trails more accessible to more people.” The district has earmarked the remaining 20 per cent in this year’s budget, but he notes it will continue to pursue other grants to cover that portion. “It takes time and, hopefully, we can get it done and finished this summer.” Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says she is “very pleased” this program funding was approved for three projects in her riding that total more than $1.2 million. Barnett adds she lobbied for the funding alongside other MLAs competing for grants, both through her rural caucus work and directly to the ministries. Building on outdoor activities promote tourism

and health, she notes. “People come here and like to go hiking and biking and walking, and a healthy lifestyle is what we’re all trying to accomplish.” Project funding like this also helps communities avoid going to their local tax base for repairs and improvements, Barnett adds. “That’s another hit on the taxpayers, when you have vandalism. Now, we have a chance to move ahead, move on and, hopefully, respect will be given for the all things in the community, public and private.” Campsall notes it will be a busy summer for the district with a rapid infiltration system also going in thanks to infrastructure funding from the province. “There’s lots of money being brought into our community from the provincial government and it’s always appreciated, that’s for sure.” The Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development’s Community Recreation Program will provide $30 million to 98 projects throughout British Columbia.

Fields store may continue to serve 100 Mile Ken Alexander Free Press

There is a chance the Fields store in 100 Mile House may not be closing after all. Last month, the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) announced it

was closing all of its 167 Fields stores this fall, as it was going to refocus on its other retail outlets, including Home Outfitters. Last week, however, HBC’s external communications manager Tiffany Bourre confirmed

Vancouver-based FHC Enterprises Ltd. has a tentative agreement to purchase the rights to the assets of 59 Fields stores in Western Canada. The Fields store in 100 Mile House is on the list of the 59 stores. Media reports

state FHC Enterprises Ltd. is a new company headed by Jason McDougall. Originally from Saskatchewan and now a businessman in Vancouver, MacDougall has been in the retail, wholesale and discount business for more

than 20 years. Details have not been disclosed as to the type of products the outlet with sell or whether it will continue to operate under the Fields name. See FIELDS… page A5

SHORT TA K E S Mediation invitation Education Minister George Abbott said last week he won’t appoint a mediator in the long-running B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) dispute until after he returns from an education trade mission to China on March 26. Abbott added his Asian trip was planned long before his ministry developed Bill 22, the legislation designed to force an end to months of teacher workto-rule action that culminated in a recent three-day strike. Following the passage of Bill 22 on March 15, Abbott said he would send letters to the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) before he left for China on March 17, inviting them to participate in mediation. Bill 22 requires the BCTF and BCPSEA to bargain “in good faith” with the yet-to-benamed mediator in an effort to reach agreement without adding new costs to the overall B.C. education budget.

Odd Squad brings truth about gangs to youth Carole Rooney Free Press

Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) gymnasium was packed, but you could almost hear a pin drop when hundreds of students watched real-life scenarios and learned how to buffer themselves from the gang violence and drug abuse. In their recent presentation, off-duty police officers Const. Doug Spencer and Const. Dawn Richards didn’t sugar-coat the shocking impacts of gang violence and drug addiction on youth and their families. The constables are members of Odd Squad Productions which is a non-profit group of law-enforcement officers based in Vancouver. The film and slideshow depicts real experiences of young people in British Columbia, and many are tragic, even grisly, tales. However, others tell the success stories of those who rose above similar

Carole Rooney photo

Odd Squad Productions Const. Doug Spencer didn’t pull any punches when he told Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) students about his own experiences with youth whose lives were lost or otherwise destroyed by gang-related activities. obstacles, and how they overcame them to lead happy, prosperous lives. After the presentation, Spencer said the program not only educates youth on these extremely important issues, it also takes a load of

anxiety off of those who have already experienced many of these aspects in their young lives, sometimes at home. Of the dozen or more youth at PSO who stepped up following the presentation to personally

thank Spencer and Richards, one was visibly shaken when she expressed her gratitude. Noting she had grown up in the very same situation, the teen told Spencer how profoundly the mentorship they offered had both affected and helped her. The student added she gained strength from knowing others have had the same terrible experiences, but conquered them. “You were describing my life,” she said, battling tears. Spencer said heartfelt comments like these pour out at almost every presentation, with the common thread being the burden lifted from these youth gained from knowing they are not alone in their troubles. “They understand that they’re like anybody else… and lots of other people have gone through it, and they go on to prosper.” It is peer-to-peer mentoring to the other students that carries “way more weight,” he adds.

Often students educated by the Odd Squad will see others from their class using drugs, and will counsel them directly, he notes. “They’ll say, ‘did you just see what those guys talked about?’.... They’re reinforcing what we said.” Many case studies in the film demonstrate the downfall of someone’s life resulting from a bad choice to take drugs or get involved in gangs, and how the youth can prevent this from happening to them. Youth in the province are frequently coerced intentionally into drug addiction to recruit new gang members, Spencer says, adding it is often hoodlums posing as “friends” who use drugs to lead girls into prostitution or boys into gangs. A vicious circle is perpetuated with youth in B.C. getting hooked on drugs, leading them to crime, gangs, prison violence and, eventually, the same coercion tactics that

draw in more and more young people, he adds. “It’s important to show these kids real live cases. We spoke to this kid in school; there he is lying in the street.” Spencer says he uses harsh dialogue and the visual aids of these disturbing films and pictures to convey the serious and often fatal impacts of gang violence, crime and drug involvement. The result is an educational experience that will leave a lasting impression on these students’ minds for a “very, very long time,” he explains. Youth with trouble at home, learning disabilities or drug dependencies don’t have the tools to say “no” and are more likely to fall prey to gang members, Spencer adds. “We just try to give them the tools.” More information on various programs offered for students by Odd Squad Productions is available at www. Oddsquad.com.

Donna Barnett defends Premier’s performance Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett has spoken out in response to recent criticism of Premier Christy Clark’s performance since taking over the helm in March 2011. BC Conservatives Leader John Cummins notes Clark’s first year in power is marked by record of higher taxes for British Columbia families, which, he says, now pays more in average taxes than any province west of Quebec. Barnett disputes some of the accusations in Cummins’ informal report card on Clark. “British Columbians pay the lowest personal income tax in the country for individuals earning up to $119,000 a year.” She discounts Cummins claim that income tax was raised on the low-income

“British Columbians pay the lowest personal income tax in the country for individuals earning up to $119,000 a year.”

bracket, where individuals making more than $11,000 a year will pay about $75 more in income tax. While there is no minimum threshold for the base tax rate of 5.06 per cent, Barnett explains approximately 325,000 low-income earners in the province don’t pay any provincial income tax. This includes people earning from zero to $37,013 who have taxes covered by various available credits and tax deductions, she says. Cummins also points to the carbon tax that went up 1.1 cents per litre of gas last July and will go about

Donna Barnett another one cent this summer. Noting she agrees the carbon tax places an undue burden on rural residents and ranchers, Barnett says she and several other MLAs are lobbying the premier to have this reduced for rural areas. Clark’s cancellation of the small business tax cut and pushing the corporate tax rate up one per cent was also denounced by Cummins. Barnett notes there are also always those who argue industry should pay more taxes. Health care and education are expensive services for government to

maintain, she adds. “We have to get funds somewhere.” Regarding Cummins’ citing BC Hydro and ICBC rates are going up, she explains the power service’s aging infrastructure needs upgrades that “have to be paid for.” Barnett notes the B.C. Liberal government is “stuck” with maintaining ICBC after an earlier NDP government implemented it. Cummins says the Clark government overspent its budget by $881 million, the provincial debt will double between 2006/07 and 2014/15, and Clark’s budget will “see real spending soar” by $1.1 billion this year. “In her first year, Premier Clark’s government has made B.C. more expensive for average families, raised

the cost of doing business, let spending get out of control and made our justice system less effective.” Noting she isn’t clear where his numbers come from, Barnett says they do not relate directly to the past year under Clark’s leadership. Changes to increase the minimum wage may cost as many as 50,000 jobs, Cummins reports. Barnett says people have been asking for wage increases for “many years” and the graduated implementation is intended to allow businesses time to plan. While she understands the impact as a former small business owner herself, Barnett says she never paid minimum wage, and thinks “few people do” anymore.

New life for Forest Grove fire department By Peter Hart There has been a surge of community support for the Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department (FGVFD), following the threat of a shutdown and dissolution of the 30-year-old service. In a heavily attended and lively public meeting at the Forest Grove Community Hall on March 14, fire chief Bob Felker said the number of firefighters had declined, leaving Hall #1 with only seven active firefighters, and Hall #2 with five. These numbers fall far short of the minimum required complement of 15 at Hall #1 and 10 at Hall #2. Rowena Bastien, protective service manager for the Cariboo Regional District (CRD), which owns the property and equipment used by the department, said that the minimum roster of 15 and 10 are standards insisted upon by the Fire Underwriters Survey (FUS). The FUS certifies a fire department for property insurance purposes. If a fire department cannot maintain its certification with the FUS, the CRD shuts it down, sells the assets to pay debts, and then divides the balance of the proceeds among the ratepayers. Thereafter, there is no longer fire or medical emergency coverage. She gave

Seven new members signed up that night, and many more applications were taken. The FGVFD then held an open house on March 18 at Hall #1. It was a busy and spirited gathering, with vehicles filling the hall’s parking area and spilling out onto Canim-Hendrix Lake Road. Ten dozen hotdogs, along with coffee and hot chocolate, were served by Wendy Clarke. Matt Wiesendahl and Don Hewitt ran a flaming fire-extinguisher training activity that was a great hit with the youngsters.

Nelson’s old Five & Dime store, which was close to where Donex Pharmacy & Department Store is now. A couple of years later it moved across Birch Avenue to the mall where it sits today. If the store remains open, 100 Mile Mayor Mitch Campsall says the district council and staff will do what

it can to make sure the new owners are happy. The mayor notes, however, the district hasn’t been involved in anything from the Fields store’s closure announcement to its potential acquisition, as everything has been done internally. “It’s great news for the store employees and it’s great news for the community.”

District of 100 Mile House

Legislation to end teacher’s dispute Carole Rooney Free Press

The B.C. Liberal government passed Bill 22 in legislature on March 15 and dashed the public teachers’ labour dispute headed by the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF). Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Association president Joan Erb says the passing of Bill 22 was a “very dismal day” for all unions in the province.” “It means we have no control whatsoever over how many kids we have in our class.” Restrictions on class size and special needs support are imposed with deviations approved by the district administration, but these issues won’t be allowed in negotiations between the BCTF and school districts. With past criteria tightening for special-needs students invalidating aspects, such as severe behavioural problems, Erb says Bill 22 leaves even less attention for the unchecked numbers of those children in the classroom. The bill authorizes Education Minister George Abbott to appoint a mediator

Joan Erb to find a settlement restricted under the net-zero public sector wage mandate during a six-month “cooling off” period. Abbott says he will write to both the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ A s s o c i a t i o n (BCPSEA) to ask they submit names to be considered as potential mediators. “Now that Bill 22, the Education Improvement Act, has been passed by the legislature and a mediator will soon be appointed, it’s time for everyone involved to pause and reflect on how we can work together to continue to improve our education system,” Abbott says. BCTF president Susan Lambert notes teachers know the B.C. Liberal government’s “so-called” Education

Improvement Act is going to have the opposite effect in classrooms, and will further diminish services to students with special needs. Lambert also questions why the government is engaged in an extensive advertising campaign while the education budget is frozen. “You have to wonder why the education ministry would spend millions of dollars on an ad campaign to attack its own public school teachers.... It’s these very teachers who have maintained the quality of our public education system in the face of government neglect and under funding.” Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says the bill ensures there will be discussion, collaboration and agreement toward the best decisions for individual students, rather than arbitrary, formula-driven decisions. She adds the classsize cap for Grades K-3 is unchanged, and Grades 4-12 has a maximum class size

of 30 students. Barnett notes the decision must be approved by the district superintendent of schools. “In the CaribooChilcotin, I met with the school board and apparently we have no class size over 30.” It was time for the B.C. Liberal government to step into the negotiation stalemate, she adds, as the

education system has to move on. “This is not about teachers; this is about unions. This is about organizations that had 78 meetings and they couldn’t come to some conclusions.” Bill 22, The Education Improvement Act is available online at www.leg. bc.ca/39th4th/1st_ read/gov22-1.htm.

The District of 100 Mile House invites all residents to attend an open meeting to discuss the District of 100 Mile House Financial Plan for the years 2012 to 2016.

The South Cariboo Health Foundation (SCHF) is the happy recipient of $5,000 from the 100 Mile House Lions Club. 100 Mile Lions president Diane Collens says the money was raised at the club’s annual dinner auction and various other fundraising events. Foundation chair Mary Shennum says the hearty donation kicks off its Pointing the Way campaign, targeting $100,000 for new hospital equipment. She adds everyone is going to require the help of the 100 Mile health services. “Supporting the SCHF certainly helps us maintain the level of care.” This campaign funding is earmarked for emergency-room needs, she explains. On April 7, SaveOn-Foods customers are encouraged to donate their frequent buyer card points to the foundation. Points can be donated right at the

Katniss Everdeen’s little sister is chosen in the lottery to participate and Katniss volunteers to take her place. Although persevering through hardship is commonplace for Katniss, she must start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love in order to win the games and return home. • Science Fiction • Rating PG - Parents: Disturbing, not recommended for young children, violence • Length 2:22

green community

ats off to our MLA Donna Barnett for successfully lobbying $280,000 from her government, so improvements can be made to Centennial Park. The park really is the outdoor jewel of 100 Mile House, with its lush, green grass and the babbling Bridge Creek snaking its way through the idyllic green space. There are tennis courts and a large climbing playground that are used by folks of all ages. There are tables for family picnics or for people to rest and chat or play board games. It’s a perfect setting for those pictures that last a lifetime — the weddings, family reunions and, of course, the graduation photos. A lot of big outdoors events, such as Relay For Life, Family Day and, more recently, Hot July nights, are held in this pristine setting. Then there are the trails that meander throughout the acreage into the hills, along the creek or up to the splendid waterfall that provides a cooling mist on hot summer days. The waterfall and the two wooden bridges that lead to it provide great opportunities for photographers, and certainly it’s a favourite spot for local residents and visitors alike – through all four seasons. Unfortunately, the trails to the waterfall and the bridges have been closed since last fall because some misunderstood people vent their anger against society by damaging and stealing signs, carving vulgarities into memorial benches and busting up the two wooden bridges. It occurred over a two- or three-week spree of vandalism. The result of the continuing small-minded attack on community property was that the use and enjoyment of the trails was halted and lost for some time because the municipal budget didn’t have the money to repair the damages. Enter our MLA and our former mayor who was not prepared to see the community lose its jewel for the coming summer. She fought hard to get the money to fix and polish our wonderful green jewel for all to enjoy. Her wish is our wish and, undoubtedly, the wish of all well-adjusted community members. We hope people will respect all the public and private property we have in our community.

Government borrowing against future I’m shaking my head at the B.C. Liberals and their budget. While professing a “prudent fiscally responsible” approach, where do they get the idea that proposing to borrow $23 billion over three years is in any way responsible. Take one year at $8.5 billion and multiply it by a five per cent interest rate and we get $425 million in interest alone. If this is an annual charge, then surely British Columbia will be under water in debt very soon. They say total debt will be over $66 billion. At five per cent, we are on the hook for $3.3 billion in interest alone. Borrowing these huge amounts is no different than “spending” our future for current debt. The B.C. Liberal government has been running things since 2001 and our debt has mounted continually. Since 2001, our economy has been eroding from a fairly strong situation to this, a staggering debt load. Lowering corporate income tax has not provided any new jobs, any stabilization of the economy, or any expansion of note. Are corporate head offices in B.C.? It is very naïve for anyone, let alone a government handing out tax breaks and concessions, to think the corporate body is social-

GARY YOUNG

GUEST SHOT ly responsible. They will take what they can get and run with it. On the other side of the fence, we see the BC Conservatives apparently raiding B.C. Liberal membership to add to their ranks. What the taxpayer will get is the same old faces and rhetoric. Consider that the aging BC Conservative Leader John Cummins has 18 years as an elected official so he’s got his fat pension and benefits, yet here he wants more of the spotlight. Cummins says he doesn’t like an increase in the minimum wage and he wants to lower the corporate tax rate yet again. Corporations pay less and enjoy bonuses and huge salaries, the poor get poorer, the middle class is left out, and the only taxpayers, our citizens, get hit with every increase you can’t imagine. The NDP seem a bit invisible and may still be struggling with their wholesale revolt among party members. Their track record seems to prove they can’t run the province either. BC Hydro is jamming Smart

Meters down our throats (remember the HST) and crying for money because their system is broken. Weren’t the B.C. Liberals supposed to manage this entity as well? If you neglect regular maintenance and repair, your operation will collapse on you … ask any small-business operator. Who has been in charge of BC Hydro during this mismanaged decade? BC First knows the voters need a real change, a responsible change, not another recycled, relabelled bunch of hangers-on. The voters and citizens have to do with less, why can’t government do the same? BC First wants MLAs to be given more freedom and a stronger voice to directly represent their constituents’ needs and interests. This doesn’t happen with the B.C. Liberals, the BC Conservatives, or the NDP. With these parties, it’s a top-down dictatorial system that ignores the voters. It is a big job to repair our economy, our small-business opportunities, and eliminate our crippling debt. Voters need to know what is going on. BC First is up to that challenge. Gary Young is the interim president of the BC First Party.

Connecting students with jobs E NTERTAINMENT Wage rollback Letters to the editor

makes no sense To the editor: Recently, Health Minister Mike de Jong said a 14 per cent wage reduction of hospital pharmacists (effective April 1) will not impact patient care in the province. He goes on to suggest recruitment issues (reason for 14 per cent wage adjustment in 2006) for clinical pharmacists are no longer present in British Columbia. This is slightly true for only one jurisdiction - Vancouver. Everywhere else in the province, it is very difficult to hire highly skilled clinical pharmacists. Vancouver Island Health Authority has a 13 per cent vacancy rate that is proving very difficult to reduce. A quick check of wage/ benefit/holiday differences between hospitals and retail pharmacists will make it clear how difficult it is to hire clinical pharmacists in this province. Perhaps the health minister needs to think of it this way. At present, the

majority of pharmacists working in B.C. hospitals has extensive experience and is at the top of their pay scale. Does he actually want us to believe a wage discrepancy of 14 per cent (most of the province outside Vancouver) between hospitals and retail pharmacies will not result in significant resignations of pharmacists from B.C. hospitals? If the wage reduction goes through in April, what are the odds those senior pharmacists at, or near, retirement age will accept a 14 per cent hit to their pensions? It is very clear to most people that we should be doing everything possible to maintain the highly skilled pharmacists in B.C. hospitals. They save lives and money for the healthcare system. A huge wage reduction for clinical pharmacists will most certainly work against this goal. The public deserves better. Robert Wager Nanaimo

Leave robocall investigation to Elections Canada Letter to editor: I am writing about the story, headlined Local MP speaks out on her party’s use of robocallers, on page 1 of the March 7 edition of the Free Press. Perhaps now that an Elections Canada spokesman has revealed the bulk of the 31,000 messages its received from Canadians concerning alleged fraudulent robocalls were themselves made via automated forms or online form letters, peo-

ple will tone down their hysteria on the issue. Particularly, since most of the calls were solicited by anti-government activists and were non-specific in nature. Let’s leave the investigation of any electioneering wrongdoing to Elections Canada and the RCMP and have Parliament get on with its business.

Unfortunately… unsigned letters and those without phone numbers end up here

John Amon Victoria

VICTORIA – The noise of the teachers’ strike drowned out debate on the British Columbia budget so thoroughly that one of Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s more controversial ideas only made the news last week. Reporters dubbed it “Welfare Air.” Falcon plans a pilot program to offer social assistance recipients training and airfare if they can line up a job in B.C.’s northern energy boomtowns. Workers are being imported to fill jobs there, while in Metro Vancouver and elsewhere the number of single employable people applying for social assistance is rising. Much of oil and gas work is dirty and dangerous. These days, most industrial jobs involve sophisticated electronics, and the technical skill level required is high. However, there are entry-level jobs going begging, and relatively high pay is offered to fill positions in a short-staffed service sector in the Peace region. NDP MLA Carole James, no stranger to northern B.C., dismissed Falcon’s plan as a stunt. There are unemployed people in the region who should be offered training before we start flying people up from Vancouver, James said. Yet, I repeatedly hear from northern employers the labour shortage is real and growing. The NDP warns that B.C. faces a future of “people without jobs, and jobs without people.” Mostly they blame the B.C. Liberals for removing apprenticeship programs from union control. I spoke with James about post-

TOM FLETCHER

BC VIEWS secondary needs a couple of weeks ago. She mentioned NDP Leader Adrian Dix’s signature policy to restore B.C. student grants, funded by a capital tax on financial institutions. She also agreed that part of the problem is young people taking post-secondary education that leads to fields with poor job prospects. I suggested that if B.C. taxpayers are to increase their subsidy to post-secondary students, already worth about two-thirds of their schooling costs, perhaps grants could be targeted to areas of pressing economic need. To my surprise, James agreed it is worth considering. This is significant, not only because it is likely to be unpopular in the education establishment. There is a good chance that James, a former school trustee, will be B.C.’s education minister in 14 months. After writing about the labour shortage last week, I was bombarded with messages from an irate Vancouver secondary school teacher who mocked the whole

notion as corporate propaganda. No labour shortage exists, globally or in B.C., he claimed. Rather, “capitalists” of the “one per cent” have tried to “vocationalize” public education for a century, but the “people” have always “resisted.” Radical socialists aside, why would matching student aid to employment demand be unpopular with teachers? Education Minister George Abbott offered a clue during the lengthy debate over ending the teachers’ strike. Abbott noted that for every three teachers coming out of B.C. universities, there is currently only one job available. Certainly student debt is an issue worth discussing, and most would agree it’s easier to pay off loans if one can find a job in one’s field upon graduation. Should further subsidies go to soon-to-be-unemployed teachers? No. Our education system trains too many people for what they want to do, rather than what the economy needs. And our economy definitely does not need more kids taught Marxist claptrap. Further to that, a tax on banks will be popular with some of today’s students, who protested against capitalism in the “occupy” camps that will resume as the weather improves. Others will examine the idea and conclude that financial institutions will recover the tax from customers, and perhaps find ways to get the job done with fewer employees. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Retirees support current teachers To the editor: The British Columbia Retired Teachers’ Association, which represents 15,000 retired teachers in B.C., stands firmly with the active teachers in our province who seek to maintain quality education for their students. The current issues about class size and composition are the same issues we fought for and thought were resolved in the past. Once again, as in 1993 and 1998, it seems the gov-

ernment’s only answer is legislation. Everyone who has gone to school feels qualified to judge the education system, but just as the public does not fully comprehend the workload of doctors, nurses, firefighters, and the police, so, too, do they not understand the time commitment in education. The work does not stop when the students are dismissed at the end of the instructional day; it just changes location.

I can attest that as a secondary school teacher, marking alone added 28 hours a week to the visible working day. And in the classroom, if one special-needs student demands 50 per cent of a teacher’s time, what do the other 29 students get? Just as doctors and nurses are in the best position to guide us in the preservation of the health-care system, so, too, are teachers in the best place to help us maintain quality educa-

tion for our students. Supporting education today is building the future. Douglas Edgar BCRTA president

Newsbeat Around the province Printed end for Buy and Sell KAMLOOPS — The Interior Buy and Sell is shifting to a web-only publication, ending its decades-long run in print, and resulting in more than a dozen layoffs. “We’re ceasing the printing portion of the paper, but we’re keeping it all online,” said Kelly Pape, who has owned the publication for 26 years. She said readers made the decision a fairly easy one to make. “The paper sales were declining and the Internet was taking off,” she said. As a result of the shift, the Buy and Sell let go of all of its employees — 11 workers plus delivery drivers — some of whom had been there nearly 20 years. Pape said she will now be the sole staffer. The publication’s website — interiorbuysell.com — will also have a new look. “We are going to try to have a live site,” Pape said. “After next week, we’re going to be free to post and free to view.”

C ap sule C omments Peanuts are a healthy snack. They are nutritionally sound, containing vitamin B and E, minerals, protein, fibre and the amino acid arginine, which is touted to be beneficial to blood pressure. Peanuts are legumes, a member of the pea family not the nut family. One or two ounces per day is a good dose of peanuts. Seniors go to hospital emergency departments for various reasons. Often it is due to a drug adverse reaction. Two classes of drugs that cause almost two-thirds of these visits are anticoagulants (blood thinners) and diabetic medications including insulin. The reason is that constant testing needs to be done to ensure proper dosing. Our pharmacists can help you understand the importance of testing. There is no health advantage to being an early riser. The important thing is to get enough sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, your reaction times mentally and physically can be impaired and your immune system can be compromised. Eight hours of sleep per day is ideal. There are many non-drug methods of reducing blood pressure and symptoms of depression. One method that is definitely helpful is the idea of forgiveness. Many people hold grudges for a long time and this has effect on their mental and physical states of health. Forgiving those who hurt you could give you a feeling of great well-being and free you from anxiety and hostility. Forgiveness is good medicine. You will enjoy our pharmacy.

Thousands of residents across the South Cariboo experienced power outages resulting from a severe windstorm that blew across the community March 12-13. More than 8,000 outages were reported, which lasted anywhere from less than two hours to up to a couple of days. BC Hydro spokesperson Bob Gammer says all the power was back on as of March 14, except for one remaining call. This doesn’t mean everyone had their power out for the entire time, he adds. “While we are working to restore an outage to, for example 2,000 customers, we may be able to get power back on to 1,500 of them within say two or three hours, but… until we clear off all of that number it will still remain active.”

clocked on radar at 50 km/h over the posted speed limit. The vehicle was stopped and the driver was identified. A charge of excessive speed was issued to a 35-year-old Prince George man. The vehicle was towed and impounded for seven days.

Thank You ... My sincere thanks to all those who proposed and supported my nomination for Citizen of the Year 2011. Also thank you to the Chamber of Commerce and Donna Barnett MLA for sponsoring the awards evening and the ‘Citizen’ award. The Free Press, too, has always generously supported the arts organizations and events that I’ve been involved with - thank you. By volunteering I’ve always learned more than I’ve taught and gained more than I’ve given. My gratitude to those I work with. Yours, Eleanor Nicoll.

From 2 to 3 p.m., the focus changes to a separate area where people can enjoy watching slideshows and a video. Expect to see artful images of the big island of Hawaii, Maui, Wells Gray Park, the Kamloops Pow Wow and more. The presentations will all be set to music, Photo Group member Brenda Tillyer says, adding they are expected to be quite entertaining.

She even created a pledge sheet for the

students to sign. “We have to be aware of what we are getting into, and realizing the decisions we make today have an impact on our future. As an incentive to sign the pledge, we collected some great prizes.” The businesses supporting the TanFree Grad Health Campaign include Pizza Man and Paninos, Village Hair and Nail, SaveOn-Foods (which donated oranges for

The program also assists in paying for hair dressing appointments and tuxedo rentals. To support both the program and dry grad celebrations, the 2012 grads will host Cinderella’s Tea Party in the school gymnasium on April 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s planned to be an

Clutter-free connections for students Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Patrick Morgenthaler doesn’t consider himself to be any kind of website wizard, but the third year business program student at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Kamloops is attracting some attention as the developer of campusconnected.ca, his online classified ad site. Morgenthaler graduated from Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School in 2008, and during

his years attending university, he’s been frustrated by the cluttered, non-specific classified sites generally found on the Internet. Through Campus Connected, he’s striving to cut through the clutter and offer students specifically at TRU and UBC Okanagan Campus in Kelowna useful information that’s easy to find. It includes a place to find used textbooks, housing, job postings and anything else that might interest a student.

It doesn’t require anything special to browse the site, but to advertise, people have to register. Morgenthaler says it’s been slow getting people to use it. “Although many students seem reluctant to sign up and use the site, most students, and people in general, have told me that they think it is a great idea.” Morgenthaler says he plans to keep promoting the site and see where it goes. “I am not too sure what I see for its future. I’m still figur-

ing out if there really is a niche for it and how sustainable it is. At the very least, I

hope to gain experience doing this, as with all other projects I start.”

According to the CCS, skin cancer, is the most common cancer diagnosed in Canada, and melanoma is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in youth between the ages of 15-29. “Just over half of the graduating class has signed the pledge sheet,” says Sortome. “A lot of them are aware of the risks of cancer and most know of someone, whether it’s family or friends, who has been affected by cancer.” For more information, visit www.cancer.ca, or call toll-free 1-888-939-3333.

REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

If converting existing floor space into a half-bathroom, such a renovation can cost as little as a few thousand dollars, making the addition of a powder room one of the few home improvement projects where the value added to the home exceeds the cost of the renovation. Before deciding to add a half-bathroom, it helps to consider some of the pros and cons of the project. Pros • A half-bathroom is often added on the home’s main floor or in the basement or attic. This makes it more convenient for guests to use the restroom during a social. • Half-bathrooms are smaller because they don’t have a shower or bathtub. That means common bathroom problems, such as mould and mildew, are not as big

homeowners might be better off keeping the area designated for the half-bathroom as a storage closet instead. Homeowners who want to go forward with the project should check with their local municipality to ensure the codes and requirements wouldn’t restrict their project.

If you worry about mould in your home and are trying to find solutions, you can take one simple step to help prevent it from happening. Mould is commonly found in houses that have poor wall insulation. As moisture builds up, the interior of the walls can slowly rot. This gives off a foul smell and reduces the overall stability and quality of a property. You may need to completely strip your walls to effectively repair them. Such a repair can be expensive, but in order to prevent this situation from occurring, you can choose an alternate kind of insulation for your home. Spray foam insulation is a good choice, especially for prevent-

ing mould. Unlike other insulation, spray foam protects your walls against moisture by forming an air barrier. Prevention of mould, dust, dust mites and other common airborne irritants will improve the quality of the air in your home and ultimately the investment value of your house.

REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE

Surveys indicate homeowners annually spend billions of dollars improving outdoor living areas and one of the most popular ways is to add a deck to a home. However, homeowners who want to build a deck should know a few things before that process begins. • Permits are necessary. Unless the deck is going to be especially small, you will likely need a permit to build it. Before buying any materials or consulting any contractors, make certain you know which permits you need and how to get them. If the proper permits are not secured before the project begins, you might have to tear down the whole project and start all over again. • Decks don’t have to go on the back of the house. If the back

to be made of wood, as they can be made out of a wide variety of materials, natural or synthetic. Pressure treated wood is perhaps the most popular material for decking because it’s not very expensive. Manmade materials that are a mixture of recycled plastic and wood bits or sawdust are also popular because they require no maintenance. However, homeowners should know that manmade materials could get hot in the sun, which will require those enjoying the deck to wear shoes. • If you’re going to build your own

Tips for creating an outdoor living space The home improvement boom has shown many homeowners just how easy it can be to transform a home into a private sanctuary that caters to the personalities of the home’s residents. Outdoor living areas have become an extension of the home’s interior, with many homeowners creating outdoor living rooms and dining areas, so they can relax and eat meals outside just as they do indoors. Here are a few tricks to consider: • Property often dictates where the outdoor living space will go, but it helps to keep in mind that the outdoor space is more likely to be used if it’s easily accessible from the inside of the home. It’s preferable to have the entry from the kitchen so it will be easier to carry meals outdoors when dining outside. • Many homeowners look at their See TIPS… page A23

If you’re building a wood deck, keep in mind the sun will beat down on the deck for most of the year. You can protect the deck by painting it. Once you’ve finished painting, apply sealant, whether it’s oil- or water-based. • Fasteners will hide the screws for aesthetic appeal. However, not all woods and fasteners are the right fit, as certain woods are only compatible with certain fasteners. Find out which fasteners make the right fit ahead of time. Because fasteners conceal the screws, they also make it possible to go barefoot.

outdoor living areas as places to put their feet up and relax, so comfort should take precedence when planning the space. Forgo the plastic patio chairs of yesteryear for furniture that’s more sturdy and roomy, so you won’t feel cramped or sweaty on warm summer evenings and afternoons. Remember to shade the area. Some homeowners choose to build pergolas, but often an umbrella or two can do the trick at a fraction of the cost. • Summer nights spent relaxing in the outdoor living area make for great memories, but such nights are nearly impossible if the area doesn’t have some lighting. Tiki torches might do the trick for some, while others who want to avoid giving their outdoor area a luau feel might prefer solar-powered accent lights, which won’t require any wiring.

If your backyard attracts its fair share of insects, look for insect-repelling lights or lamps. • Homeowners who have one eye on rest and relaxation, and the other on resale value should keep the design of their outdoor living space consistent with their home. One of the goals when designing an outdoor living space should be to create a seamless transition from the home’s interior to its exterior.

To submit a question for one of our experts on this page, please email martina@100milefreepress.net

Ask an Expert: How do I replace a single cracked ceramic tile? Remove the grout from the joints around the broken tile. You can use a grout saw, or scrape the grout away using the pointed end of the hand can opener. Score the tile by making an X on the cracked tile with the glasscutters. Put on the safety glasses when using glasscutters. Use the ruler as a guide to score the tile. Make two deep cuts in the tile, going from corner to corner of the tile making an X shape. Remove the damaged tile. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES FOR THIS STEP. Place the chisel at the center of the tile. Pound the chisel with the hammer to break up and remove the tile. It should break into four pieces because of the X you previously scored. Use the chisel or a scraper to remove any remaining pieces of tile, grout, and adhesive. Sand any rough spots left on the sub floor with sandpaper so the new tile will sit evenly on the floor. Seat the new tile. Apply the adhesive to the back of your replacement tile and on the sub floor. Wiggle the new tile into place on the sub floor. Cover the tile with a piece of wood and gently tap with a hammer to seat the tile. Place two pieces of masking tape over the new tile in an X shape to hold it in place. Let the adhesive dry 24 hours before grouting. Keep all foot traffic off the tile when the adhesive is drying. Apply grout to the joints around the new tile according to the grout manufacturer’s instructions. A putty knife works well for applying the grout to the joints. Smooth the grout in the joints using your fingers. Wait ten minutes then clean off the excess grout from the tile with a damp sponge. Let the grout dry for 24 hours, again keeping foot traffic off the new tile. You can then polish the new tile with a soft cloth to remove any haze left by the grout. Your replacement tile is now firmly in place and you can use your floor.

Girls show attitude at hockey jamboree NTERTAINMENT Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Female hockey is continually growing in popularity, but for players in some small towns, playing on an all-girl team can be next to impossible. The 100 Mile House Attitude on Ice Female Jamboree at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on March 17-18, gave girls from all over British Columbia a rare opportunity to hit the ice with players of their own gender. The fun tournament drew a capacity roster of 96 female hockey players between the ages of five and 16. They came from Fraser Lake, Vanderhoof, Prince

The Shooting Shamrocks skated to a second-place finish in the senior division of the 100 Mile House Attitude on Ice Female Jamboree, March 17-18. George, Clearwater, Lillooet, Kamloops, Williams Lake, Quesnel, Kitimat and

100 Mile to participate. They were divided into teams based on age and skill level,

and the result was two days of pure hockey fun. The three junior

teams, with players aged five to nine, played round-robin fun games.

The senior girls had four teams in the pool and took it a bit more seriously. They ended the weekend with a final during which the Smurf Warriors outscored the Shooting Shamrocks 7-2 for the overall victory. Each of the tournament teams had an equal complement of South Cariboo players, and according to event co-ordinator Shelly Morton, all girls on each newly formed team played well together. While the senior squads included a wide age range and a number of rep players on each team, coaches co-ordinated things, so lines of equal age and skill were on the

ice at the same time. “We had lots of rep players and they [made sure] to include all players. There was lots of passing from them, even though they could have taken the puck up the ice themselves. “It was all about fun, not really about the final scores.” The Shamrocks infused some St. Patrick’s Day antics into their late afternoon game on March 17 by dressing up in crowd-pleasing Irish costumes for their warm-up, adds Morton. “It went really, really well. “Everyone was very happy. The jamboree style is something we’ll do again.”

Bow hunters aim to please at A&W 3D shoot The Bighorn Bow Hunters Archery Club had a good turnout for its A&W 3D Shoot at the 100 Mile Agriplex, March 17-18. It was chilly outside, but the club extended a warm welcome to the 75 archers who competed at the event. Out-of-towners came from Kelowna, Kamloops, Williams Lake, Quesnel and the Lower Mainland to a shoot that was a little out of the ordinary, says club spokesperson denise swift. While most 3D shoots have the animal targets set up alone on the shooting range, she notes the Bighorn range looked almost like a natural forest, with animals tucked in and around trees that people had saved from Christmas celebrations. “Our club members all saved their Christmas trees for the event and afterwards, the Williams Lake club took the trees with them to use at their next shoot.” Staging the shooting range in such a way makes it more fun and interesting for participants, she adds. “There are lots of things to distract you. It’s sort of like being outdoors.” Winners in the Traditional Men’s Longbow category were Bob Plewes in first place and Allen Riley in second. Allen Pickering was the Master’s Longbow winner and Ted Swift was second. In Recurve competition, Plewes tied with Dan Mobbs for top spot, Dirk Dunkel took second place and Sebastian Riley was third. Ernie Schmid took first-place honours in Master’s Recurve, followed by Adrian

Messner in second and Frank Lanchester in third. The winner in Ladies Longbow was denise swift. Tamara Van Loon was first and Liz Jones and Jessie Mobbs tied for second in Recurve. Kiara Pratt was the winner in Junior Recurve. Youth Recurve champs, from first to third were Baden Riley, Brieana Van Loon and Lane MacKay. In the Compound Bow category, Cub Barebow winner was Anthony Silverton, followed by Cole Skerry and Calleigh Skerry. Cubs Unlimited had Brody Lowen in the lead and Blake Pigeon second. Wesley Silverton was winner of Junior Unlimited, with Kenny Lowen and Brayden Feeley second and third respectively. Taylor Pigeon won the Youth Open and Breanne Carlson was second. Men’s Open winner was Myles Toba, followed by Bill Bjornsen in second and Rick Skerry in third. Tyler Parent won the Men’s Unlimited competition and Dave Cooper was second. Gord Parent and Todd Nichol tied for third. Men’s Masters top shooter was Bill Housden and Brock Brown was second. Ladies Unlimited had Stephanie Zimmerman as winner and Sara Blakley and Shannon Silverton tied for second.

Financial Tip of the Week With Reverse Mortgages vs. Line of Credit Best suited to supplement retirement income, a reverse mortgage allows you to access equity in your home, without making payments. The interest accumulates, and the loan is Dave Simkins paid once you die or sell the home. A reverse Financial Advisor mortgage lender may lend up to 50% based on your age, location, type of home whether it is in the city or rural, and appraised value. In most cases, the interest rates are higher than conventional mortgage rates. One alternative is a secured line of credit, which will give you more flexibility, and the lenders will usually lend up to 80% of the property value if you qualify. You may have to make the monthly interest payment, however some lines of credit will let it accumulate. In most cases the interest rate is lower, plus you have control of what you can borrow and pay back. The line of credit is the preferred choice to supplement your retirement income. For more information call us today.

Your mother probably told you that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t true. People who lose money in Ponzi schemes probably weren’t listening when mother taught that lesson. For the uninitiated, a Ponzi scheme is, by deÀnition, a form of fraud. It is sold to investors as a form of investment offering unusually high returns. In fact, however, the scheme does not operate a business or make real investments. Instead, the high returns often paid to the earliest investors come from money invested by new investors. Since these schemes do not actually operate a business, they cannot succeed and collapse when new investors can no longer be found. There have been a couple of high proÀle examples of this form of fraud over the past few years. In Canada, there was Earl Jones who, by conservative estimate defrauded his victims of $51,300,000. In the United States, there was Bernie Madoff who stole billions and is now in prison. What has taxation got to do with Ponzi schemes? Keep in mind that in the earliest stages of a Ponzi scheme, some investors actually walk away with their initial investment plus a proÀt and, when one invests, one expects to be taxed on proÀts. In a Ponzi scheme run by Andrew Lech, a certain Donna Johnson made a proÀt of $1,300,000 – and Mr. Lech was given a lengthy prison sentence. Then, Canada Revenue Agency tried to tax Ms. Johnson on her proÀt. The Tax Court of Canada applied principles from similar cases where Canada Revenue Agency had refused to allow those defrauded to deduct their losses from other income for tax purposes – and held that Ms. Johnson’s income was not taxable. (Johnson v. The Queen, 2011 TCC 540) For Ms. Johnson, it could be said that she deÀed the old saying that “crime doesn’t pay” – but then, she wasn’t the criminal – Mr. Lech was.

Cougars advance to Major Midget finals Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Cariboo Cougars of the BC Hockey Major Midget Hockey League earned a berth in next weekend’s championship finals after recent back-toback wins over the Greater Vancouver

Giants in the semifinals. Brett Harris of 100 Mile House figured into the victories with a pair of assists in the Cougars’ 6-2 win on March 16 and a goal in its 4-1 deciding victory March 17. Both games were played at the Kinsman #1 Arena in Prince George.

Donald George

YOU’RE APPROVED

1944 - 2012 Don passed away suddenly at his home on March 14, 2012. He was born on August 7,1944 in North Vancouver and spent his childhood and young adult years there; operating tugboats for C.H. Cates and Sons Towing. He then moved to various areas of B.C., working in the logging industry where he met his wife Mina, then finally settling down in the 108 Mile Ranch. Don loved the outdoors—fishing, boating, and camping. Don was predeceased by his parents George and ILO, and his wife Val. He is survived by his loving wife Mina, children: Kevin (Tina), Kenny, Joanne (Gord), Mike, and Andrea; stepchildren: Shaun (Marla), Raymond (Nancy) and Tyrel; eight grandchildren and one great-grandson. Don had a great sense of humour and loved to get the best of people by joking and telling amazing stories and yarns while enjoying a nice cool lager. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him, and all who loved his stories round the campfire. For family and friends wishing to celebrate Don’s life an Open House will be held at 4994 Smith Rd., 108 Mile Ranch, B.C., from 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, 2012. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the 100 Mile Hospital Auxiliary Box 851, 100 Mile House, BC, V0K 2E0, or the Canadian Cancer Society, in his memory.

DALBY Maurice (Walt) 1933-2012 Walt Dalby passed away peacefully in 100 Mile House, B.C. on March 11th, 2012 after a long struggle with cancer. Walt grew up in the city of Hull, Yorkshire in England, and served three years with the British Army in Malaya before immigrating to Canada in 1958. Initially in Victoria for five years, he developed what would become a lifelong love of fishing, bought his first boat, and went salmon fishing “up-island” at every chance. Having apprenticed as an automobile body man, he later became a material damage estimator with ICBC. In 1963 he found himself in Dawson Creek where he encountered Barbara and her three small children, Jan, Peter and Jill. Married in 1966, they added another child to the family, Jacquie. Life in the Peace country included fun, singing around the piano, camping, hunting, river-boating, and curling. In later years Barb and Walt lived in Nanaimo for 14 years, doing more boating and fishing, before moving to the Cariboo. Walt was cheery, affable, and outgoing. People knew him as a story-teller and jokester, and someone who would always help out a neighbour. Walt will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 46 years, Barbara Dalby; one brother, Brian, in England; four children: Jacquie Sandnes (Darren), Jill Caston (Tom), Peter Dalby (Julie) and Jan Sanderson (K.C.); eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; one cousin in Nova Scotia; and many friends. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, March 24th at 2:00 p.m. in the 100 Mile United Church. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Home & Community Care, South Cariboo Health Centre, 100 Mile House, B.C. Condolences can be sent to the family at www.100milefuneralservice.com

In Memory of Max K. Searls

June 2, 1933 - March 10, 2012 Max was born in Kelso, Washington and grew up in Toutle trapping, playing sports and roaming Mount St. Helens. In 1949, at the age of 16, he bought 160 acres in Canada and dreamed of the day he could move there. After graduating he served his country in Korea for two years and came home to marry Viola McVey, the love of his life. Son Mike came along in 1956 followed closely by Max Jr. and Jack, finally after 22 years working for Weyerhauser, and a brand new baby girl named Debbie, the family moved to Canada to homestead that 160 acres. Max trapped, logged and raised sheep for years, then decided to buy his first guide area, thus entering a new phase of his life. In 1988, Max, Viola and Debbie moved to McLeese Lake to be close to the guide area. When he retired, he was introduced to the fine art of knife building by his friend Marty Beets, turning out beautiful hunting knives. Some of these knives ended up in several European countries as well as Mexico and the U.S. Max lived the life he dreamed of as a kid, making many excellent friends along the way, and always accompanied by at least one good dog. He was an excellent husband and a wonderful father and friend. Max died of Leukemia at home surrounded by love. He was predeceased by his parents Barbra & Paul Searls and sister Lois Cooper.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. 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.

Heart patients create helpful videos Living Well Health tips‌ for your whole life. Two e-learning videos are now available to help people who have experienced a heart attack or are living with heart failure to understand and manage their health. This innovative project, a collaboration involving Interior Health Authority patients and staff, was made possible through an innovation grant provided by Cardiac Services BC. Anyone with an Internet connection can access the videos. Patients can start the video modules in hospital and continue at home after they are discharged. They can also select the topics they wish to learn about and take quizzes to test their knowledge. The video, Living Well with Heart Failure, provides valuable information for patients about heart failure, as well as tips to manage the condition. The video, Surviving after a Heart Attack, explains what to expect after a heart attack, outlines steps to deal with future chest pains and offers tips for a heart healthier lifestyle.

100 Mile House Elementary School student Courtney Cave put the filtration properties of various products to the test in her project Natural Filters at the District Science Fair competition on March 8.

Mackenzie Menzel of 100 Mile House Elementary described the effectiveness of preservatives to District Science Fair judge Ralph Fossum, and which best kept the bread mould at bay.

Lydia Kinasewich from 100 Mile House Elementary School was a gold medal winner at the district science fair with her project, Hot to Cold.

Experimental experience at science fair Carole Rooney Free Press

Several 100 Mile Elementary School students medalled at the District Science Fair held at their school March 8. Just before the judging commenced, a few of these local students paused to talk about their experiences in the competition. To get to the District Science Fair, they had already won medals at their school’s recent science fair.

It was a lot of work to get it done on time, but it was a good experience. I liked seeing how the bread moulded.”

Grade 6 student Courtney Cave entered her project Natural Filters, where she tested the filtration properties of sand, moss and rocks with muddy water, and disproved her hypothesis that moss would top the list. “The sand was best and the moss was next. My dad took

Mackenzie Menzel

me to get the moss because there was snow. He dug it with a bulldozer.” Courtney says she did everything else herself, noting she spent a lot of time making the backboard for her project display. “I was happy to get to the district level. I had a lot of fun

doing the project.” She subsequently netted a silver medal in the Environmental Science-Novice category. Grade 7 student Mackenzie Menzel tested the effectiveness of preservatives in bread with her project Mouldy Slices of Life. “It was a lot of work to get it done on time, but it was a good experience. I liked seeing how the bread moulded.” Thanks to her diligence in studying the effects of pre-

servatives on decomposition, Mackenzie brought home a silver medal in the Health Science-Junior category. Grade 6 student Lydia Kinasewich evaluated insulation properties of wool, polyester, hay, wood shavings and paper in her project. “I liked doing the experiment. I found it interesting to learn about the insulation and how it traps the heat.” Lydia earned a gold medal in the Physical Science-Novice category.

Film series looks at environmental challenges Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

A new Sustainable Community Film Series launches on March 27, offering the first of three documentaries aimed at educating and engaging local residents about topics related to sustainability. The spring series follows a very successful winter series, which drew up to 50 viewers for each of the three films offered. The South Cariboo Sustainability Committee (SCCC) is hosting the series and committee chairperson Patricia Spencer says high interest in the last series has prompted them to find a larger venue at the 100 Mile House United Church. Formerly the screenings were held at the 100 Mile House

Patricia Spencer Branch Library. The first film being offered is White Water, Black Gold, directed by David Lavallee. It uses his perspective, as he follows an imaginary drop of water down the Athabasca River from its start in the mountains,

along the river’s main course, winding past oil sands development areas as it picks up an imaginary drop of oil. Through the film, Lavallee brings to light the threats to the third largest watershed in the world and two oceans brought on by oil sands mining. The films show at 7:30 p.m. with admission by donation. The church address is 43 Dogwood Ave. On April 24, look for the film, The 11th Hour, created, produced and narrated by movie actor, Leonardo DiCaprio. It looks at what the global community is facing due to environmental decay and offers solutions for restoring distressed ecosystems. “We’re so disconnected from the natural world and that’s why we’re

having troubles,” says Spencer. The final film, Home, runs on May 22. Full of breathtaking cinematography, it focuses on the creation of life on Earth and how humans have changed it. Solutions are given for the prevention of self-destruction. “All of the films present huge challenges and all propose solutions at the end, and that aspect was important to us in choosing them,” says Spencer. Each screening will close with a discussion and refreshments. “Specifically, we hope to raise awareness about climate change, peak oil and rising fuel prices, food security, and biodiversity loss, so that our community can better respond to the challenges of the future.”

All proceeds from the dance will be put towards some much needed, expensive repairs at the hall.

Other Unusual Talents group members Betty Lunn, left, and Karen Perchie showed their artistic creations at the group’s recent gathering. I always find these gatherings a wonderful time and it really brings that “small-town” feel to the community.

area resident Betty Lunn shared her many paintings, while Karen Perchie from 97 Mile showed her detailed embroidery creations, and Jeannette Cockram showed what magnificent creations can be done with buttons.

Old Man Winter struggling to keep his grasp on the Cariboo CANIM LAKE PETER HART 250-397-2645

hartshepet@xplornet.com

Dear Canimites Spring is muscling out winter, but not without a tussle. High winds on March 12, snapped a large road-side Douglas fir on the Canim Lake Reserve, knocking out power to the Canim Lake area for eight hours. Mahood and Hawkins lakes also lost power about noon that day, and were without service for 24-plus and 27 hours respectively. The only reported property damage at the time of writing is the loss of a carport in the Canim Estates. With the days lengthening and warming, geese now add their music to the air, with redwinged blackbirds singing harmony. Juncos, redpolls and goldfinches forgo the revelry to focus on packing on calories at the feeders. In the night sky above, the brilliant Venus slow dances with portly Jupiter. Look to the west any-

time after dark. Community club The club’s AGM has been scheduled for March 29 at 10 a.m. in Margo’s Cabin, and everyone in the area is welcome to attend. The past year ’s activities will be reviewed, and a slate of officers for 2012/13 elected. Margo is again cooking a post-meeting lunch for everyone. The menu has not been created yet, but if the past year is any indication, it will be tasty. The garden stepping stone-making project will be held again in May. In the past, participants have turned out some beautiful additions for their gardens with patterns of stained glass inlaid in the base cement. Kathy Reid of 100 Mile House will lead the group. Last year, not everyone could be accommodated. If you are interested in attending this year, give Margo a call at 250-397-0016.

improve the safety of the supply. Area H Director Margo Wagner says a water conservation plan for the system has recently been submitted to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. The plan will help secure grant funding to cover the estimated $80,000 cost of replacing the roof on the large storage tank at the west end of Summit Drive. That work will be done this summer, and is the last of the planned upgrades to the system. Margo says the system produces 10,998 cubic metres of water annually. The 86 residents on the system use an annual average of 350 litres each day. This average is very much lower than experienced in larger communities in the Cariboo, she adds.

Firefighting crisis in the Grove FOREST GROVE AREA Marianne Van Osch 250-397-2625

grover@bcinternet.net

A recent mailout from the Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department explained the very real possibility we may lose our fire department. New members are needed to prevent this from happening. Before 1982, firefighting in the Grove meant neighbours with buckets. When a fire department was formed that year, bottle drives and raffles were held to purchase equipment. In 1983, a dance brought in enough funds to purchase a 1948 open-cab pumper from Hendrix Lake. The truck spent its first year in Bob Felker’s carport. In the early days women were an important part of the firefighting team. When the men were away working, the women were first to respond to calls. There was usually a man available to drive the truck. The women manned the pumps and hoses.

John Calam photo

In 1951, teacher John Calam took a photo of skaters Billy Dunbar, left, Gordon Armes and Robin Nadin at the Forest Grove School during recess. Our firefighters are a vital part of our community. Their training and diligence have saved many homes. Their first responder training has saved many lives. They volunteer their time to provide functions that bring the community together, such as the Halloween fireworks display and Christmas party for children. Our fire department will not continue to exist without new members. Please call fire chief Bob Felker at 250-397-2393 for information or drop by the fire hall Mondays at 7 p.m.

ing number of people who dropped by my table had a connection with Forest Grove. Gordon Armes’ father was a ranch manager at Dog Creek. He married the local schoolmarm and moved his family to Forest Grove to try his hand at logging. Gordon recalled

school days in the Grove in the 1950s and living in the big Auld house down the hill. It was ramshackle at the time and later burned. Eleanor Devore Vernon remembered the days when her mother was on the school board. The family owned Becker

Ranch. They operated a store in the old building featured in my last column. Eleanor left the Grove in 1945 to stay at the dorm in Williams Lake for high school. She works as a volunteer at the Cowboy Festival and other events in Kamloops. Diane Robinson Reay talked about playing with the Nicholson girls (Janet Brown, Linda Larson and Pat Wallace) at their homes at the Jens sawmill site on South Canim. She reminisced about her wedding and how she had bought her going-away dress at the Kelletts’ Canim Lake Store.

“Don’t Dither, Call Diether”

Deadline is approaching for grants The Williams Lake and District Credit Union (WLDCU) is now accepting applications for grants that focus on youth, entrepreneurs, immigrants, low-income working families and aboriginal peoples. Established in 2008, WLDCU’s C o m m u n i t y Investment Fund assists local non-profit organizations and community groups

with projects and initiatives that contribute to economic revitalization and improved quality of life. “We distribute these grants twice a year,” says WLDCU 100 Mile House branch, financial service representative Shannon Nantel. “We were fortunate to be able to provide grants to a lot of 100 Mile House

organizations, in the last two sessions.” She adds WLDCU is proud of its history supporting the communities it serves and financial institution is excited about the potential positive impact this funding has on the local area. The WLDCU receives applications at three branches in Bella Coola, Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. It’s a fair

process, Nantel says, adding two representatives from each branch and the regional manager review all the proposals. “Organizations can apply every session unless they receive a grant, then they miss one session and can reapply for the next session. So if they receive a grant this spring, they cannot reapply until the fol-

lowing spring.” For information on the application and requirements, visit the WLDCU 100 Mile branch in the Coach House Square, or go online to www.wldcu.com/ Personal/inOur Community. Preference will be given to organizations that are WLDCU members. Application deadline is March 31, 2012.

GROVE… from page B8 Eric Reay described a time when he was working at a cow camp at Holden Meadows east of 100 Mile. He and another young fellow started out for town in mild weather, well above freezing. The temperature suddenly dropped. Mrs. Morrison at the Safeway store gave the freezing boys newspapers to stuff into their clothes. By the time they returned to the camp it was 40 below. So many stories, so little time. Earth Hour Earth Hour started in 2007 in Australia, organized by the World Wildlife Fund. Last year, 5,200

cities and towns in 135 countries participated in the largest environmental event on the planet. The amount of electricity saved during Earth Hour is an indication of what can be done. We can add Forest Grove to the list of places that care by turning out our lights from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on March 31. Calendar • March 31 - Schoolchildren and volunteers will be picking recyclable cans, bottles, juice boxes and plastics. Proceeds will go to class trips.

Painting feeds the soul of artist Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Joining the South Cariboo Artists Guild

in 2006 was exactly the inspiration Linda Lindberg of 100 Mile House needed to get her back in front of

the paint easel. Like most moms, her life had been busy with everything except

Arlene Jongbloets photo

Linda Lindberg’s intense interest in Egypt inspired a couple of artifactstyle pieces of art.

time for herself, and she had let her love of painting go to the wayside. She is thrilled to have a paintbrush in her hand again, and during the month of March, Lindberg is the featured artist at Showcase Gallery. Looking for a style to call her own, she found inks and the wonderful things they do when you incorporate water to be the perfect fit. It allows a lot of freedom and that also works perfectly with a vision problem she’s experiencing. Most of her ink drawings are landscapes and the technique she uses lends them a cool, misty and mysterious feel. She has several on display in her show, along with

a few acrylic paintings, watercolours and a pair of very unique pieces of faux Egyptian art. “I love anything to do with Egypt, and these are here just for fun.” Lindberg regards creating art as food for the soul and looks for ideas in nature and among her eight grandchildren and twin great-grandchildren. The self-taught artist says painting has become a passion and her ideal would be to retire and just paint every day. For now, she’ll have to fit it in during time away from her job with Axis Family Resources where she works with children. See her show from now until March 31 at Showcase Gallery at 475 Birch Ave.

Last chance to get in on Bankers Variety Show Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

If you snooze, you lose. There may be a few tickets left for the annual Bankers Variety Show, which brings a night of hilarious entertainment to the 100 Mile Community Hall, March 24. As expected, most of the 300 originally available tickets sold fast, and if there are any left at press time, they can be purchased at financial institutions in 100 Mile House for $20. It might just take a bit of hunting around to find where they are still available. Shawna Norton, one of the organizers

who will also be performing with a group from the Williams Lake and District Credit Union - 100 Mile House Branch, says things are shaping up nicely. “We’re all getting a little nervous and excited.” Bankers in the community form the lip-synching cast for a show that promises 13 different musical acts and great cos-

tumes. She expects the kidding to continue for a few weeks following the show. “It’s all good, though. It’s all fun.” During the evening, she adds, they’ll be auctioning off one nice item that is sure to get the interest of most people. There will also be raffle draws for big ticket prizes, including an Xbox with a Kinect system.
