Taseko exec predicts boom Brian Battison, Taseko Mines Ltd. corporate affairs vice-president, visited 100 Mile House on April 5 to talk about its New Prosperity Mine proposal to mine the largest goldcopper deposit in Canada located west of Williams Lake. He met with the South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of 100 Mile House and others to discuss potential benefits the large mine would bring to the region, including the South Cariboo. If the mine project gets the required federal approval to proceed, the first of these benefits will come in the form of initial employment, followed by long-term job creation and the associated development of business opportunity, he says. “It’s 700 people working for two years around the clock, essentially, to build it. And once up and operating, it’s roughly 500 direct employees.” See TASEKO… page A4

Green Lake OCP revised once again Carole Rooney Free Press

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) board has rescinded third reading of the Green Lake and Area Official Community Plan (OCP) because the province won’t sign off on it, noting the regional district didn’t follow the guidelines of First Nations engagement. The directors gave the OCP bylaw third reading more than a year ago after a lengthy review process, but since that process didn’t follow First Nations procedures for review and endorsement, the document needs to be modified again. The project began in 2009 in

response to the community’s desire for local governments to provide long-term planning objectives and policies for protection of the natural environment of the plan’s area. After multiple public hearings and the efforts of an advisory committee, CRD Area L Director Bruce Rattray notes the board understands the community surrounding Green Lake is looking forward to the OCP’s final approval and release. “It’s been a long process with a lot of community consultation leading up to the plan that we currently have. “It’s been disappointing that it has taken so long to get final

approval of it, but it appears this is the final hurdle and we’re looking forward to the final adoption of the plan in the not too distant future.” After the third reading in late 2010, both the CRD and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD), which share common boundaries within the OCP area, sent the plan to Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong for the signed approval required by law, he explains. The ministry’s review identified a concern that Section 12.2 did not refer to the province’s Guide to First Nations Engagement on Government

Statutory Approvals (Interim). Then talks went back and forth between the regional districts and the ministry last year. “We obtained legal advice about changing Section 12.2 to meet the ministry’s requirement and were advised to write to the First Nations advising of the change and give a 60-day response time, and then follow up with a public hearing.” The proposed amendment states engagement with First Nations will take into consideration the province’s interim guide and its First Nation guidelines.

Energy efficiency jumps at hospital ENTERTAINMENT Carole Rooney Free Press

A new system to run the boilers at the 100 Mile District General Hospital has significantly improved energy efficiency, thanks to the ingenuity of Richard Trippel and his staff. Trippel became the chief engineer and maintenance supervisor last October, and says he immediately took note of some problems brought forward by his new staff. Throwing his efforts into solving the inefficiencies, Trippel notes rerouting some piping and adding some new electronic controllers have significantly lowered the carbon footprint for the main hospital facility. “Nobody had looked at the piping. Now, we can run one boiler to control it and cycle to the other.” A lot of money will be saved, he says, by now using only 40 per cent of the consumption seen before the design was modified. Previous to the change, Trippel says

100 Mile District General Hospital chief engineer Richard Trippel, left, discussed the pipe welding for a new boiler system with contract welder Ernie Stuart, while RL-7 Mechanical’s Kyle Rosse, back left, observed Quintin Duhamel measure the huge pipe. both of the two large boilers for the main hospital were running in tandem about 70 per cent of the time. Now, they run almost one at a time at about 30 per cent capacity, he explains, with a slight, but more productive, overlap while one ramps down and the other catches up to take over.

He adds recent changes at Mill Site Lodge also improved energy efficiency. “At Mill Site Lodge, we had five boilers. Three produced hot water and two produced heat. We’ve eliminated the three hot water boilers, and we’re producing heat from one boiler.” By re-piping water through a heat

exchanger, the one boiler is now heating all the domestic hot water, he explains, with a second on standby only. While the three eliminated boilers were small, Trippel notes the combined improvement results in a significant reduction in energy consumption. “It’s a huge cost

saving, it’s a huge carbon footprint saving and it’s a huge saving in tax dollars to the people of British Columbia.” The new system is now working with “excellent” results, he says, adding another benefit came by effectively troubleshooting a long-term problem that suddenly got worse.

A squeal in the ceiling pipes that had been an annoyance for years became almost unbearable, Trippel explains, when two pumps now had to operate at 135 per cent of the recommended capacity in order to keep up with the new system flow. The noise was heard over at Mill Site Lodge, bothering the staff and “agitating” the residents, he adds, impacting the “quality of their day and their sleep.” Once the pumps were adjusted to run one at a time at 75 per cent, the noise was virtually eliminated, but Trippel says prior to the new system, the cause was untraceable. On top of all the redesign and troubleshooting, these improvements included cutting, welding and rerouting some huge pipes, installing control electronics and maintaining all other hospital operations, yet Trippel proudly notes he and his team had the project accomplished within four months.

Group lobbies to sustain abattoir services Carole Rooney Free Press

A local group, which has been lobbying the provincial government for the continuation of red-meat slaughter in the South Cariboo, has come up with what it feels is a viable plan. The group is looking for community support and encouraging folks to speak out and send letters in support of its proposal for facilitating local meat inspection. Local producer and group spokesperson Diane Wood says it’s an opportunity for residents to let legislators know what rural communities want

and need regarding access to affordable and locally produced food. Licensed redmeat slaughter in the South Cariboo ceased in December when the interim slaughter licence at Findlay Meats expired, causing it to discontinue that part of the business. Meanwhile, the province is holding consultations to develop a new provincial meat-inspection system. Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Health representatives will visit 100 Mile House to speak with abattoir stakeholders. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says the

meeting takes place on April 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Valley Room, and while invitations are going out to abattoir stakeholders, no one will be turned away. Wood and Barnett note it’s another chance for folks to hear what is discussed and show local support for abattoir continuation to the government by turning out for the meeting. With the help of Barnett, Wood says some former directors of the now-defunct South Cariboo Meat Co-op worked with Findlay Meats’ Rob Morrison, the South Cariboo Regional Cattlemen’s Association

and other industry stakeholders and came up with a potential solution to retain local slaughter capacity. This group’s plan proposes a pilot project using local veterinarian services to perform the required inspections at Findlay Meats, Wood says, adding it addresses all the initial concerns cited by government. “We have a letter from a local vet who was more than willing to do these inspections both pre- and post-mortem.” Submissions are being accepted until April 30, and Wood notes blank letters of support of the group’s plan addressed to

Health Minister Mike de Jong are available online at www.meadowsprings. com/meat. Both Wood and Barnett encourage everyone who cares about ensuring local food availability and/or securing its related economic value to send a copy indicating their support to Meat.Inspection@gov. bc.ca or Donna.Barnett. MLA@leg.bc.ca. Supporting letters for the plan so far have been provided by the BC Cattlemen’s Association, the Cariboo Regional District and the Canim Lake Band, Wood explains.

Short work weeks attempts to attract employees TASEKO… from page A1 Battison notes he is aware of the existence of about 80 residents of 100 Mile House who are trained in regular mining activities who could fill some of these jobs. The mine would generate approximately 3,000 direct and indirect jobs, he adds. “There’s a camp to build out there; we’ve essentially been building a hotel ... and all of the services you would expect at a hotel will be required at New Prosperity.” This includes everything from

Brian Battison housekeeping and laundry to janitorial service, he says, adding companies providing mine supplies can reap significant sales. “Just as there was

during the gold rush, it was those [suppliers] who are the people who make a lot of money.” Some of these may potentially be in the 100 Mile House area, Battison explains, depending on what mining needs can be filled here. There is potential employment for “lots of unskilled labour” at the proposed mine, particularly around the camp, he says, adding the skilled jobs include equipment operators and truck drivers, which are not specifically mining jobs. Then the influx of experts required to run

the mine will further boost the economy by bringing in more people to live in the area, Battison notes. Becoming part of a community and standing together with people who support and understand the company’s mission is key to its success, he explains, including its ability to attract the necessary specialists. “If local communities are successful, we’ll be successful.” With its plan for a live-in camp for employees during the workweek, Battison says the shift schedule is also important to “encourage local liv-

ing.” The work is planned to begin on a short shift schedule of three to four days, he explains, because that won’t allow time for people to live in cities, such as Vancouver or Calgary, to commute like they might on a seven-days on, sevendays off timetable. Furthermore, the company plans to transport workers from Williams Lake and potentially other communities. “Our intention is to bus people out there because one of the First Nation’s concerns was increased traffic in the area.” While it hasn’t yet

ated, Richmond says a workshop may possibly be run in 100 Mile House at a later date.

CRD offering invasive plant workshop

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is hosting a hands-on workshop to assist area landowners in tackling invasive plant problems. Landowners, farmers, ranchers and others interested in controlling invasive plants can take advantage of the free, Weed and the Works Workshop to learn how much and when to apply herbicide, safe handling methods, which products to use for your purposes and spray equipment calibration. The event will take place in Williams Lake on May 3 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Pioneer Complex at 351 Hodgson Rd., as part of the CRD’s Invasive Plant Management program. CRD chair Al Richmond notes that while the regional district loans equipment and distributes herbicides, most landowners realize they will be applying it themselves on their own property, so it is beneficial to have proper training. “We loan them backpacks and sprayers and things like

that and then we train them how to use them all.” Many of the ranchers have the equipment of their own, he notes, so they are encouraged to bring it along and have it calibrated as part of the training. A tractor boom sprayer will be on site to demonstrate calibration methods for larger applications. Other aspects covered in the workshop include herbicide product information, aerial applications, demonstrations including ATV- and truck-mountedsprayers,

District financial bylaws revised

District of 100 Mile House councillors are considering two new bylaws to replace the existing bylaw for how reserve funds are handled. Mayor Mitch Campsall says the intention is to

streamline the process for controlling the reserve funds. “It’s not going to change any way we do business. It’s just a simplified way of doing things.” The Capital Works,

Machinery and Equipment Reserve Fund Bylaw will potentially be repealed, and replaced by the Infrastructure Reserve Fund and Equipment Reserve Fund bylaws. The end results won’t be

known until after council does a thorough review of the process and implications. “We [perform] first and second reading to get it on the table, and now we get to pick it apart.”

ABATTOIR… from page A3 Barnett adds she also has had “many letters” sent to her to carry to Victoria, asking for support for retaining local slaughter capacity. Wood notes having a local abattoir helps protect small-farm incomes, farm status for landowners, local food security and the ability for people to feed their families. The proposed method does not suggest the resulting meat could be used for anything beyond direct sales at the farm-gate or personal use, she explains. The province could look at this pilot project’s potential for other rural communities, Wood adds, and

Donna Barnett compare the costs of contracting veterinarians to using provincial inspectors. “In the smaller communities, like 100 Mile, [it would] keep our local businesses going and

keep our [residents] competitive with our farm-gate sales. We are asking them to create another level of licensing for farm gate and for own use.” According to BC Meat Industry Enhancement Strategy statistics, Wood says about 300 red-meat abattoirs were operating in British Columbia before the regulations took effect, and now only about 10 per

cent of those remain licensed. More information on the government’s review of the BC Food Safety Act’s Meat

ollowing a condemning report on the joint strike fighter program from Auditor General Michael Ferguson earlier this month, the Stephen Harper Tory government finally showed there are problems with their beloved F-35 jets. The report also accused the Department of National Defence (DND) for not being wholly open with the information it gave government, especially about the escalating cost estimates. It appears Mr. Harper suspected the jig was up when there was no mention of the F-35 jets in the recent budget speech other than to note the CF-18 Hornets had to be replaced. Immediately after the Auditor General’s report was released, the Tories froze the spending for the F-35 program. Next, the feds announced it was withdrawing DND’s ability to purchase new weapon systems. This gives the appearance of doing something and deflect criticism in the House of Commons. However, the $30-billion price tag for the F-35 jets isn’t new information for the Tories. In March 2011, Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page noted the cost of the F-35 program would be closer to $30 billion because DND’s $15-billion price tag didn’t include ongoing training, personnel and operating costs. However the Tory government and its MPs, representing Ottawa in our communities, stubbornly refused to admit costs were spiralling out of control, and pointed accusatory fingers at Mr. Page for not providing accurate fingers. Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod said Page was comparing “apples and oranges” and accused him of basing his costs on a 30-year maintenance program rather than the government’s 20-year estimate. While the federal Liberal Opposition hammered away at getting a true costing for the F-35 jets, the Tories continued to defend the F-35s. This refusal to come clean and share the information with the House of Commons came to a head when the opposition passed a lack of confidence vote against the minority government and forced last year’s federal election. During the ensuing election campaign, the Conservatives continued to pull the wool over the nation’s eyes by denying the escalating cost and technical problems. They were rewarded for their evasiveness by being handed a majority government. It lends credence to the old adage “You can fool all of the people some of the time.”

Generic drugs debate explained On April 2, the cost of generic drugs reduced from 40 per cent of the brand name price to 35 per cent across British Columbia. This is the last cost decrease scheduled under the existing Pharmacy Agreement, which was announced by Health Minister Kevin Falcon in 2010, following an agreement with the BC Pharmacy Association and the Canadian Association of Chain Drug Stores. The agreement applied to public and private payers and it saw the price of generic drugs in B.C. drop to 50 per cent in October 2010, 40 per cent in July 2011 and 35 per cent in April 2012. So what does this mean for you? Essentially it means the cost of generic drugs has become lower and more affordable during the past two years for both public and private payers. For many, however, this reduction isn’t enough and it forms part of the larger debate around the reduction of drug pricing in the province. Prescription drugs are a major expense in B.C., equating to $972 million in 2010/11 and it is this cost that the government is trying to reduce. At Pacific Blue Cross, we are

KEN MARTIN

GUEST SHOT concerned about this issue for all payers, including more than 1,000,000 British Columbians who don’t have drug coverage through their employer. We are also a strong advocate for drug-cost solutions that benefit everyone; public and private payers, including individuals paying out of pocket. We are pleased with the government’s work to date to reduce prices for generic drugs across the board and moving towards equitable and consistent pricing for all British Columbians. Equally important, we are supportive of a solution that plan sponsors and patients can easily understand and adopt. So what happens next? The last cost decrease under the existing Pharmacy Agreement has now taken place and it has not yet been confirmed what the new solution will be. In February 2012, the Ministry of Health announced that it was terminating its agreement with the B.C. Pharmacy Association and

the Canadian Association of Chain Drug Stores. This is because the agreement failed to result in the significant savings expected. British Columbia was on track to save $122 million over three years under the deal, but that is still $50 million short of the savings the parties had agreed to. In its place, the Health Minister Michael de Jong has announced the government will introduce legislation to further lower the price of generic drugs. This is the same as cost savings imposed through legislation in Ontario. The new legislation will aim to reduce the cost of generic drugs to 25 per cent of the cost of the brand name drug by April 1, 2013. It’s expected to be introduced during the spring sitting of the legislature and we eagerly await this announcement. We fully support the government’s efforts to reduce the cost burden of drug pricing and we hope that the cost of generic drugs will become truly affordable and accessible to both the public and private payers alike.

Letters to the editor

Tax panel members weighted for business To the editor: I would like to commend Mayor Mitch Campsall for the concerns he has about the Expert Panel on Tax (front page, 100 Mile Free Press, March 28). However, I wonder if he has fully analyzed the bias of the panel. For example, to have Gold Corp’s top management, which paid its CEO $24,271,040 in 2009, make recommendations about controlling municipal taxes is questionable given these “experts” can’t even control their own expenditures. As for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business having a say, it’s bringing with it the primary recommendation it published in its BC Municipal Spending Watch 2011: “Limit operating spending increases [in municipalities] to rate of population and inflation growth.” If this is to be the guiding criteria for spending at the municipal level, there is no room to accommodate services downloaded from the provincial or federal governments nor is there any chance of a municipality taking on new functions, such as a swimming pool or even providing sidewalks for an aging population. The Vancouver Board of Trade is hardly a neu-

tral member of the panel. In a recent publication, the following statement is made: “The board believes the market system is the only system that works effectively in the allocation of scarce economic resources for efficient and stable economic growth and job creation…. The board supports the philosophy of less government involvement in the business sector and believes that governments should not do what can be done in whole or in part by the private sector.” With this attitude, do not be surprised if the panel strongly recommends that all services presently offered by a municipality be contracted out to the lowest bidder. If the panel had at least one left-leaning member, such as a representative from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, it might have some credence. Its present structure simply means the private sector is going to reap some rewards. Traditionally, in a democracy, the role of government was to control corporations; now the corporations are taking on the role of controlling governments. Gordon Hoglund 100 Mile House

BC First looking towards a positive future To the editor: The taxpayer in British Columbia is assaulted daily by new revelations about government misconduct, misrepresentation and insults. The opposition parties are not much different, not having any position on important matters and having “forgetful moments” to do what they said they wouldn’t do. It’s no wonder people are exasperated. Is your

government out of control? BC First has a positive agenda. To make government more directly accountable, we would advance the technology for electronic voting. This is not just for reducing election costs, but it would provide a simple method of getting direct public input. Other parties don’t want it, but we do. See BC FIRST… page A12

Political spotlight falls on Cummins

VICTORIA – The information age might have sped up British Columbia voters’ mood swings, but the basic dynamic hasn’t changed since the days of Social Credit. When familiarity breeds contempt, people vote to reject the familiar and see what happens. Or as one radio talk-show caller summed up his decision to climb on board the BC Conservative bandwagon, he knows two things about its leader John Cummins: “He’s not Adrian Dix and he’s not Christy Clark.” It’s been more 21 years since Gordon Wilson reshaped B.C. politics and launched the modern-day B.C. Liberal Party with a single quip in a leaders’ debate between a bickering Rita Johnston (Socred leader) and Mike Harcourt (NDP). Cummins has about a year to show he’s earned his rising poll numbers, and to refute the conventional wisdom that he’s the best friend the NDP has had since Wilson put them in power and later joined them. So let’s get to know Cummins a bit better. He’s 70, and has an 18-year record as a ReformAlliance-Conservative MP. His Ottawa days are mainly remembered for battling treaties and aboriginal-only fisheries, and for being the first Reform MP to reverse himself and take the MP pension. That pension pays him about $100,000 a year, as he tries to build a second political career in B.C. Another legacy of Cummins’ federal record is his support for the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). As he hastens to clarify, he supported Conservative legislation to enter into HST deals with any

TOM FLETCHER

BC VIEWS province, which Ontario and B.C. subsequently did. Cummins said B.C. could have brought in the HST at a lower rate to reflect its broader reach, as Atlantic provinces did. However, they tried to make it a “tax grab” and now they’ve “poisoned the well” for many years, he added. “We’re going to have to pay the price I guess, in the sense that where it has been introduced, it has been shown to have grown business. Think tanks on both the left and the right have come to that conclusion.” To me this beats the NDP’s crude coffee-shop populism that simply ignores HST benefits for small business and the poor. Speaking of crude, Cummins further distinguishes himself from the B.C. Liberals by endorsing the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline to Kitimat. He applauds the federal government for moving to place limits on submissions to federal environment hearings, citing the thousands of Internet sign-ups that have clogged the Northern

Gateway hearings. His record on aboriginal issues suggests he has little sympathy for territorial objections from First Nations, those with treaties or those without. The April 19 byelections in Port Moody-Coquitlam and ChilliwackHope offer a chance for the BC Conservatives to present policy alternatives. So far, they’re against gas taxes, especially the carbon tax, against a second Metro Vancouver garbage incinerator, and in favour of fixing the “catch-and-release” justice system. These are the slogans that stand in for actual policies needed to govern. Cummins will be going door-to-door during the byelection campaigns, especially in Chilliwack-Hope, where he believes his upstart party has a real shot at winning. He offers a telling anecdote about the last time he was door-knocking in Port Moody, the premier’s former hometown. The B.C. Liberals have suggested the BC Conservatives chose Christine Clarke as their candidate to capitalize on the premier’s name recognition. That wasn’t what Cummins and his previously unknown candidate found when they first started campaigning. “She’d say hi, my name is Christine Clarke, and the doors would close rather quickly,” Cummins said. Now she identifies herself as the BC Conservative candidate, and then gives her name. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Tory budget ‘mean-spirited and wrong’ To the editor: Are you prepared to give up $13,000 during your golden years? (Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo) MP Cathy McLeod and Prime Minister Stephen Harper think you are. That’s what the average Canadian will have to give up thanks to the federal budget introduced by the Conservative Party last week. The budget cuts retirement benefits by raising the age of eligibility for Old Age Security (OAS) and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67 years, forcing Canadians to postpone their retirement for two years. For low-income seniors, it’s even worse. They stand to lose up to $30,000, which could hike seniors’

poverty by up one-third. It’s a massive hit to the leastwell off. It’s mean-spirited and it’s wrong. The Conservatives offered zero financial analysis to justify the cut because there is none. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the Parliamentary Budget Officer and other leading experts have all confirmed that Canada does not face a pension crisis. The Conservatives are also using the budget, making deep ideological cuts. They are cutting $90 million from Environment Canada, further gutting protection for the environment when we should be strengthening it.

They are cutting $166 million from Aboriginal Affairs, reducing funding for the fastest growing and most impoverished group in the country. How skewed are these priorities? Take a look at what the government is not cutting: polls, advertising, bigger jails and stealth fighters. Canadians should be asking Stephen Harper and Cathy McLeod how they can justify such a smallminded Canada. Bob Rae, Leader Liberal Party of Canada

Newsbeat Around the province Stray bullet punctures home KELOWNA — A Kelowna townhouse complex on the 1300 block of Findlay Road was pierced with a stray bullet Wednesday (April 4) morning, prompting a call to police. Once on the scene, police confirmed the hole was in fact from a bullet. Further investigation revealed that another unit in the complex had also been hit, said Const. Kris Clark. “Although the shots are believed to be linked, the tenants are not, and the shots appear to have gone astray,” said says Sgt. Derek Williams of the Kelowna General Investigation Section. “The townhouse complex is full of families with children, and it was fortunate that no one was hurt.” Police believe this to be an isolated incident and that the residences were not targeted. The Kelowna General Investigation Section continues to investigate.

Faith Johnston Gateway Recruitment is important. I hope the District of 100 Mile House is doing the same contributions.

Max von Hartmann 100 Mile House I didn’t know we needed doctors, but I guess we do. I remember in 1958 we didn’t have any doctors in 100 Mile House.

Marieanne Dyer Deka Lake I think it’s a great idea, but it seems like a lot of money for recruitment.

Patsy Heath West Sheridan That’s a very good idea; we can use the promotion. I’ve heard Smithers is a very successful and welcoming medical community.

Public saves banned books

MERRITT - Two days before Merritt Library Branch Manager Deborha Merrick was scheduled to burn banned books, she was halted by the effort of the community. “People came in and said they didn’t want any books burned,” she said. The stint ran from Feb. 26 to March 3 as a part of Freedom to Read Week. Each person was only allowed to save one book and altogether 47 books were saved. The pile represented books that have been banned in the past, but have since been placed back onto library and bookstore shelves. “We wanted to get the word out there that a banned book might as well be a burned book,” Merrick said. A few examples of books that have been burned in the past include, “Little Women,” “Little House on the Prairie,” “Catcher in the Rye,” “The Holy Bible” and “Harry Potter.”

Yes, we support recall because if your employee, the MLA, is just not representing you then fire him or her. Any referendum or initiative can be put on a list for decisions from the voter. Examples might include the Site C dam, Northern Gateway Pipeline, smart meters, reinvestigation of the sale of BC Rail, any new tax suggestion, and toll bridges and highways. These are just a few things to have the voter speak to. In the case of these referendums, BC First would publish the results for all to see. We would then issue a statement on the results and any action we felt we needed to take from the voters’ desires. I know that seems very simple and very easy to do. It

Organizer Linda Jefferson, middle row left, and her 2012 grad volunteers put together a fantastic presentation for the inaugural Cinderella Tea Party in the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School gymnasium on April 1. The gym was lavishly decorated with merchant tables ringing the perimeter for the fundraiser for Cinderella’s Closet and the dry grad prom. The male grads served desserts, while the girls scooted around the room and served refreshments and sold raffle tickets.

Is Friday the 13th LLUCKY UCKY?? IT SURE IS!

Cinderella Tea Party a success Heather Nelson Free Press

The afternoon of glamour and live entertainment for the Cinderella Tea Party in the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) gym on April 1 was amazing, says co-organizer Linda Jefferson. “It was almost overwhelming, considering this was our first time. There were over 100 people there, not including the volunteers and the grads.” The afternoon raised about $1,300 in cash, says Jefferson, plus profits from all the vendors went to purchase jewelry. The proceeds of the event go to help the Cinderella’s Closet and the Dry Grad Prom. “The grads worked hard as greeters, servers and doing what was needed,” she says, adding they all worked hard. “There were so many desserts donated by the parents that we held a silent auction for 12 cakes.” If any parents or grads would like to see what is in the “closet” at PSO, they are welcome to call

Mrs. Brett at 250-3952461, ext. 230. All calls are handled confidentially, Jefferson notes. The Grad Fashion

Show fundraiser will be held in the PSO gym April 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 apiece and include a snack and refresh-

program to find out the times of the performances at Didi’s Boutique and Donex Pharmacy and Department Store. The $5 programs will also be available at the door. “The Festival is fun and we are hoping many people come out and see the students perform,” says Robertson. “Every session is by donation.” The highlight of the festival is the Awards and Showcase Performance evening, starting at 7 p.m., at Martin Exeter Hall on April 27. It will feature many of the top performances from the festival classes.

Free Press

During the next two weeks, Martin Exeter Hall will be the venue for the 36th Annual 100 Mile Festival of the Arts. The festival runs daily, starting on April 16 and ends with the Showcase Evening and awards on April 27. It’s a joy to watch novice performers of one year become the skilled veterans of another, as they learn from adjudicators, teachers and peers, says Mary Ann Robertson, 100 Mile Festival of the Arts president and committee cochair. “The festival gives the students an opportunity to grow. The adjudicators stress different things for different students; it is a great learning experience for the students.” The festival will take shape with daily performance by students who will be adjudicated by professionals in the different disciplines. From April 16-19, speech and dramatic arts is the focus with adjudicator Anne McGladdery, who has completed her Royal Conservatory of Music Grade 10

The festival runs from April 16 to April 26 (except April 22) and culminates with the Awards and Showcase Performance on April 27. practical exam and Level 4 theory and literature exams. This is McGladdery’s first speech arts festival adjudication, but she comes from a family of adjudicators, Robertson says, adding her mother, Debbie, has been at past festivals. Instrumental and band adjudicator Cheryl McHugh is from Vancouver, where she is active as a freelance musician and the principal flute and piccolo of the Band of the Fifteenth Field Regiment, RCA. Band and Instrumental adjudication takes place on April 20-21.

Naomi Cloutier, piano adjudicator for the second year at the local festival will be at the Martin Exeter Hall on April 23-24. Adjudicators are limited to two consecutive years, Robertson says, adding it is nice for the adjudicators to see students grow from one year to the next. Vocal adjudication, on April 25-26, will be the focus for Kevin Zakresky, assistant conductor of Chor Leoni Men’s Choir. He brings some wonderful credentials to the festival, Robertson says, adding Zakresky is increasingly in demand as both a choral and orchestral

conductor. People are welcome to pick up a

“100 Mile Dairy Challenge Milk, Meat & Mayhem” fundraiser.

Proceeds helped Robin Diether attend North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge in Roanoke, Virginia. Robin’s team reached the podium with a 3rd place finish! Gus’s extraordinary team included John McCarville from Yummer’s Restaurant and Rita Giesbrecht and Barb and John Hooper with the Agricultural Enterprise Centre. With a host of other volunteers, they pitched in to prepare and serve a fantastic spaghetti dinner. The Pincotts brought their family milk cow for the hilarious blind cow-milking contest! Thanks to all the folks who so generously contributed beautiful items for the silent and live auctions. Thanks, also, to everyone who bid so generously for these treasures. Finally thank you to everyone who turned out to support Robin. It was a great evening!

A men’s hockey tournament was held in the 47 Mile Memorial Complex on March 23-24, followed by the final children’s hockey practice on March 25. The Clinton youth hockey team, consisting of nine players, aged four-nine years, presented their coaches Brodie Moorman and Emmett Beeds with gifts as a token of their appreciation for helping them out with their skating all winter. Everyone enjoyed a final fun game of hockey, followed by cupcakes and a photo shoot. The team also thanks Integris Credit Union for its contribution to help pay for the ice time all season.

In spite of what many lawyers think, there are a great many people with no legal training at all who understand a great deal about the law. While that may seem surprising to some, it’s not so hard to understand – many of our laws are just simple common sense. Unfortunately, however, one person’s “common sense” is another person’s “ridiculous.” And it’s not always easy to see the common sense in some of our laws. The law relating to “intestate succession” is a good example. (“Intestate succession” is lawyer-speak for “dying without a will.”) Clients and others will often explain to lawyers that they don’t really need a will because “after all, when I die, it will all go to my spouse and then when he/ she dies, it will go to the kids.” That commonly held misconception might sound logical – but it’s not the law. The Estate Administration Act provides that when someone dies without a will, then if they leave both a spouse and children, the spouse will have priority for the Àrst $65,000 of their estate and will have a right to occupy (but not as owner) the couple’s house, but other than that the spouse and children will share the balance of the estate. If there is more than one child, the spouse will inherit only 1/3 of the estate and the children will take the rest. People are very often surprised to learn that their spouse will not automatically inherit their entire estate – but that’s the law. Are you sure you don’t need a will?

BC Lions football players Jason Arakgi and Jon HameisterRies, and tour co-ordinator Shawn McGarva, brought a message to Mile 108 Elementary School students on April 4. They arrived at 10:35 a.m. and the students were greeted by the Grey Cup champions who introduced them to the benefits of energy conservation. Signs were placed around the gym showing the students how to save energy. The students had a lot of fun with Arakgi and Hameister-Ries leading the way. Sponsored by Fortis BC, the players did a great job of getting the conservation message through to their audience.

forget the spare tire, while you’re at it). You can wash and clean your car as much as you like — you won’t wear out the paint. If you really want to stick your nose under the hood to ensure your engine is well maintained, then check the fluid levels regularly. Today’s cars have all the bells and whistles to let the driver know if a liquid is low or leaking. However, a little preventive maintenance will not hurt. Begin with the windshield washer liquid. Although winter is behind us now, it is best to keep the windshield washer reservoir filled with the proper liquid (you never know when you are going to drive over a muddy road or follow a truck that’s dripping with dark liquid and splashing

your windshield). Don’t fill up the reservoir with water. You may forget about it next fall and you’ll run into big trouble when the temperature freezes. Engine oil can be checked easily, as you never know when an engine will burn off oil. Brake fluids are also easy to reach, but be sure to have the proper fluid to top it off. If oil is missing, you’d best visit your mechanic or your dealer because it’s usually the sign of a problem. The power steering fluid is another problem spot to watch and so is the engine coolant. If possible, you can always have a look at the transmission fluid although many recent cars no longer offer that possibility. If in doubt, consult your mechanic. Fluids can usually tell a lot.

viscosity in winter; and the 30 is the viscosity the oil reaches when it is hot. There are several types of oil on the market. Mineral oils are the most common. Over the past few years, however, oil companies have begun offering synthetic oils. They are just as good as mineral oils but more expensive and, in most cases, car manufacturers still retain the same oil change intervals. Then, there are recycled oils. These are good, also, but just check if they offer the same protection with the appropriate additives. In any case, the last word belongs to the car manufacturer. Check his recommendations in the owner’s manual.

The Voltec system powers the unique Chevrolet Volt electric car using an electric motor that powers the front wheels. Fully charged, the car’s batteries are good for about 70 kilometres before needing to be recharged by electrical power. The 70-kilometre range is quite enough for most drivers with urban needs, but for those who need more (or much more), the Voltec system relies upon a small four-cylinder gasoline-powered engine to produce electrical power to “feed” the electric motor. Never is there any mechanical contact between the gas engine and the front wheels — everything goes through the electric motor.

could influence your engine’s performance. As is the case for so many car requirements, you should consult the owner’s manual of your specific vehicle, to learn what its manufacturer recommends. You will find the required intervals for the oil change and the viscosity recommended for each season. Viscosity is the “thickness” of the oil and its ability to protect the moving parts of your engine. It is rated according to standards developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The most common rating is 10W-30: the 10 indicates the oil is thinner when the engine is cold, which helps the start-up; the W refers to its capability to keep its

WINDSHIELDS“THAT • WINDSHIELDS • WINDSHIELDS SPECIALIZE”

A safe RV season starts with a propane primer For many British Columbians, a recreational vehicle (RV) is just like having an extension of their homes in the great outdoors. Before you go on your adventure, however, the BC Safety Authority (BCSA) reminds folks of some basic safety precautions for your propane system. “If you use propane properly and do some basic safety checks prior to use, then you and your family should have a safe and worry free trip,” says Eric Skehor, BCSA provincial gas safety manager. Fortunately, trailer explosions due to propane leaks and carbon monoxide poisonings are rare, but they are still a risk worth thinking about before hitting the road in an RV, he adds. “The propane system in an RV must be well-maintained and properly used, just like everything else in your vehicle.” Propane smells like rotten eggs. If you think you smell propane in your RV: • Get everyone out of the RV immediately. • Don’t smoke, light matches, operate electrical switches, use either cell or telephones, or create any other source of ignition.

• Turn your gas off at the main cylinder, if safe to do so and if you know how to do it. • Call the area fire department emergency number or 9-1-1 from the nearest phone. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is colourless, odourless and potentially deadly. Here are some safety reminders to prevent CO poisoning: • When using a propane stove or oven, open a vent or window and turn on the range hood fan to let out any possible carbon monoxide and never use stove burners or the RV oven for space heating. • Never use portable propane camping equipment, such as camp stoves, barbecues, lanterns, and catalytic or radiant heaters, inside your RV. • Have everyone leave the RV and get medical attention if a person shows physical symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, impaired judgment, or lack of physical coordination. For more information about handling propane properly and RV propane safety, visit: www. safetyauthority.ca/ safety-information/ homeowners/gas.

Do you have all the tools? With newer cars and trucks, other than routine maintenance, there is very little a sunshade mechanic can do. However, when it comes to older cars, there are still a lot handy people, who like to tinker with their mechanical parts, can do. Since so many modern cars can now reach a very high mileage before being “retired,” it comes as no surprise that some owners want to get the most out of their vehicles. Electronics can obviously be more difficult for would-be mechanics to repair. However, there are still a lot of parts that can

be maintained by any car owner, with a few tools. With the advent of the metric system in North America, quite a few wrenches and boxes have to be purchased in both metric and English sizes. However, one does not have to go overboard in such a situation. If you’re on a tight budget and you like to do your own repairs, try to stick to the basic tools. If you feel that you can tackle a heavy, specific job and that you will save a lot by doing it yourself, you can always rent some of the most expensive tools you will need for the job.

Soccer supporter receives provincial award Carole Rooney Free Press

Werner Heine of 100 Mile House is a recipient of the province’s prestigious British Columbia C o m m u n i t y Achievement Award. Announced on March 30, Heine will be recognized in a formal presentation at Government House in Victoria on April 25 along with this year’s other recipients. Each will receive a certificate and a medallion designed by B.C. artist Robert Davidson. “I’m quite honoured really, so much so, because quite frankly I don’t know how it came about,” says Heine. “There are lots of people who do lots of good stuff, and being picked out among a few in the province is a pretty big honour.”

Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett nominated Heine and obtained the required letters of support. His significant volunteer work and contributions to promote, coach, organize, fundraise and improve the capacity for the sport of soccer in the community were behind the nomination, she says. “Nobody, in my opinion, could have done it the way Werner did, with the many hours and days he has spent putting the whole soccer project together.” It all came from his vision, his efforts to allow children to play soccer and his ability to organize volunteers to work with them, Barnett explains. “It takes a lot of time and effort and vision to do the work

that he’s done and he continues to do.” Heine was instrumental in bringing the 2011 U-15 B Cup Provincial Championships for both boys and girls to 100 Mile House, including several years work to develop tournament-grade soccer fields. He says these fields were crucial to getting the first provincial championships ever held in the community. “That’s the first thing that had to happen, without [the fields] we wouldn’t have been awarded the 2011 championship. By having the soccer park, it lends itself to holding these kinds of events.” The event brought so many people into 100 Mile House and area last year it could not accommodate

everyone, so some had to stay overnight in Williams Lake. There is always at least a year’s break between venues, but Heine notes the 2013 championships are already lined up to return to 100 Mile House. The soccer park is also a great benefit to local players, he says, adding the school fields have no afterhours washrooms and parents with multiple children involved in soccer were kept busy chauffeuring them to various venues and missing much of the games. Barnett adds Heine recognized the importance of the sport of soccer and its benefit to both the youth and the economic potential of the community. “Werner’s determination is really and

truly what inspired the [soccer fields] to happen.” 100 Mile House & District Soccer Association chair Jennifer Appleby, who sent one of the letters of support for Heine’s nomination, says it’s “fantastic” he received the award. “He’s absolutely instrumental to our board. He finds advertisers; we’ve got four fields now. He doesn’t quit, and he loves the game. “He gets out there and he refs and he doesn’t even have kids in the program anymore. We’re so proud of him and we’re glad that we have him.” Werner Heine will receive the British Columbia Community Achievement Award in a formal presentation in Victoria on April 25.

BC Lions touch down in the South Cariboo BC Lions football players Jason Arakgi and Jon HameisterReis put smiles on the faces of hundreds of local children when they visited three elementary schools in the South Cariboo on April 4. The cheering students who packed the gym at 100 Mile House Elementary School expressed their glee at meeting the high-calibre players. Grey Cup champions Arakgi and Hameister-Reis are travelling the province with the FortisBC Energy Champions program, using their sports-hero status as an effective segue for connecting with children and youth to mentor them on important issues. Arakgi says he has been involved with the FortisBC tour

for about four years, where six BC Lions players travel in pairs to visit 80 schools in the province, about half of which are situated outside the Lower Mainland. “We tie in being champions on the field and also being

good example.” Hameister-Reis says the hands-on program is like a pep rally. “It gets everyone excited about energy. We play some games, we do some challenges, and it’s more of a fun thing for kids to

champions off the field, and part of that is teaching kids how to be more energy efficient.” It’s a good way for the players in the program to get out in the community, he notes, and use the fact they are athletes talk to

youth in a meaningful way. “I’m only going to be able to have kids listen to what I want to say for so long while I’m playing football. I think it’s important for [us] guys to take advantage of that to set a

some messages the players carry to youth in the province. The lucky students at Mile 108 and Buffalo Creek elementary schools also had the chance to participate in the program and meet the Grey Cup champions.

Local players excel in Prince George Ken Alexander Free Press

Four 100 Mile House hockey players made it to the medal rounds in a recent hockey tournament in Prince George. Goalie Riley McLean and forwards Ethan Sanders and Cole Allan played with the Flypuck Black team in a division for players born in 2002 and 2003. They competed against the Prince George Pirates and the Houston Flyers, which were full 2002, so Flypuck Black did quite well considering the age differences. McLean was the only goal tender on the team, so he played all five games, which were the most consecutive games he’s played in minor hockey career to date.

Team Black lost 10-2 in game 1 against the Prince George Pirates, with Sanders getting his squad’s first goal. Game 2 ended in a 9-3 victory over the Prince George Red Thundercats. They suffered a 3-0 shutout loss in game 3 against the Houston Flyers, but a Team Black player was injured and taken off the ice by an ambulance crew. They were trailing 1-0 when the injury occurred, and appeared to be unsettled by what happened to their teammate. Knowing they needed a tie or a win to advance to the semifinals, Team Black popped in the tying goal late in the third period and hung on for 3-3 tie against the Quesnel Bulldogs

in game 4. This set up the rematch against the Pirates, but they came out on the short end of an 8-4 score, and ended up placing fourth out of seven teams. Ryan Allan was the fourth 100 Mile player to compete in Prince George. He played in the 2001 division for the Flypuck White, which finished first out of four squads. Game 1 saw Team White nip the Highway 16 Flyers

2-1. Allan celebrated his 11th birthday by scoring the winning goal. Games 2 and 3 saw them lose to Flypuck Black and the Northwest Wings by scores of 3-2 and 5-2 respectively. That saw them finish last in the round robin and had them playing against the first-place team in the semifinals. They locked horns with the Northwest Wings in the semifinals and the two squads had to play

Nordic cross-country challenges completed Ken Alexander Free Press

The 100 Mile Nordics Ski Society’s 500- and 300-kilometre Challenge has wrapped up for the season. This year ’s Challenge program was organized by Deb Summers. She added a team component for the 500-km challenge so teams of two could combine the kilometres they skied, but would have to share any prizes they were awarded. Summers also added a 300-km challenge for those who wanted to participate, but didn’t have the time to complete 500 km. The additions proved to be very popular with the cross-country skiers. “Good job to everyone who got out skiing and I hope you met your personal goals or at least enjoyed a little skiing this year,” says Summers. Several people completed the 500 km. Individuals: Janet Wright, Brad Summers, Troy Monkman, Tracy Moore and Gary Carlson. Teams: Lauren Bock and Bruce Nicolson, and Kirsty and Ryan Bock.

MEEKS

Donna Mae Dec. 10, 1931 - April 3, 2012 It is with great sadness that the family of Donna Meeks announces her peaceful passing. Born Dec. 10, 1931 Donna passed away April 3, 2012 surrounded by love. Donna was born in North Vancouver and grew up in Lynn Valley. As a young adult she moved to England. While there on a trip to France she met, fell in love, and married a young Frenchman named Christian Blin. Together they moved back to Lynn Valley and had four children. Christian passed away in 1966. Donna found love again and married James Meeks. They moved to Quesnel then to 100 Mile House. Together they had two children. Donna was a loving, caring, active mother with a wonderful sense of humor. She loved to laugh, watch sports and watch her grandchildren. Donna is predeceased by her husbands Christian Blin and Jamie Meeks. Parents Jack and Bertha Houlden, brother Ken Houlden, son James and grandson Jonathan Meeks. Donna will be forever remembered and lovingly missed by her children Bob (Sharon), Bettyann (Dave), Michelle (Vern), Philip (Sharon) and John.

The family would like to thank the staff of Fischer Place and 100 Mile Hospital for taking such good care of Mom. We look back on memories we forgot we had, And at times we’ll smile even though it hurts so bad. Our mother was a special woman and no one can take her place, We’ll find a piece of mind when we remember her smiling face. Our mother is an angel now she flies high above the rest, and in our hearts always and forever she will be the best. She has earned her wings and it’s time for her to fly, I know it hurts no one is ever ready to say good bye. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements 250- 395-3243. Condolences can be sent to the family care of www.100milefuneralservice.com

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.

BOYES Melissa

May 24, 1957 - April 1, 2012 Melissa passed away peacefully at the 100 Mile Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Montreal, she had spent many years on the coast with her husband Frank, raising his son and working towards their dream. In 2010 Melissa and Frank moved to Lone Butte, in the Cariboo to live on what was their piece of paradise. Although her time was short, she spent it absorbing her surroundings. Melissa’s kind gentle ways, generosity, zest for life and genuine love and care of Frank, his son, her two Arabian horses, dogs, cats, family and friends will be greatly missed. Her photography allows us to not only keep her in our hearts, but in our minds eye as well. Melissa’s spirit will live on with her life partner Frank Colbert, her Sisters, family, special friends and the animals she so cared for. She touched all and to say she will be missed doesn’t seem enough, but know for some, she will never be gone. On behalf of Melissa donations can be made to the BC SPCA Horse Rescue

LAW

Diane Judith (nee Lacktin) November 13, 1923 - April 4, 2012 Diane’s long and wonderful life came to an end on April 4, 2012 in 100 Mile District General Hospital. By her side were her beloved daughter, Tamara, grandson Jacob, and doctor and friend, Joanne Lapin. Born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan to Walter and Stella Lacktin, Diane came to Vancouver, BC at the age of nineteen to begin work in the Burrard shipyards. There, she and Wilfred Law met, and began a life together. They moved to Forest Grove in 1967, and have resided in the area since. Diane was a wonderful homemaker, gardener, singer, and crochet enthusiast, and loved to spend time with her family and friends. She was a proud member of the Forest Grove Women’s Institute for many years. In recent years, her time spent at the United Church and Tuesday afternoons at Pioneer Haven playing crib with friends and brother-in-law, Dave Law, brought her much joy. She was renowned for her delicious pies, rice pudding, and wonderful sense of humour. She is predeceased by beloved husband Wilfred, parents Walter and Stella, stepfather William Karchie, sister Violet Carey and brother-in-law Dan Carey, nephew Ronald Carey, and great-nephew Grant Law. Diane is survived by her family, son Garry and daughter-inlaw Lana Law, daughter Wendy and son-in-law John McNeil, daughter Tamara and son-in-law Scott Dawson, grandchildren Micah and Julie Law, Brianna and Paul Carey, Nadaya and Steven Tresierra, and Jacob Dawson, great-grandchildren Caden and Quinten Carey, Wilfred Law, Dominic Tresierra, and coming soon, her first great-granddaughter. She deeply loved her brother-in-law Dave, nieces and nephews Bruce and Debbie, Judith and Gerry, Walter and Marilyn, Susan and Steve, Kathleen and George, Dan and Colleen, Dee and Penny, and their families, cousins Ken and Annette and family, and many more relatives, too numerous to mention. As well, she had many friends, each of whom she cherished. Not to be excluded from this long list of loved ones is Diane’s everfaithful companion, Gemini Law. The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank-you to Dr. Joanne Lapin, Dr. Bruce Nicolson, Dr. Neetha Vithalal, Jono Hessler, Jack and Fern Witty, and the nursing staff at Royal Inland Hospital 6th floor North surgical ward. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the 100 Mile United Church. A celebration for Diane will be held at a later date. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements 250- 395-3243.

District of 100 Mile budget meeting attracts four participants compliment of the district’s support of arts and culture. Campsall notes the meeting lasted about 15 minutes. “It’s a non-concern; they understand a budget’s a budget, and it doesn’t change a whole lot. I mean it’s pretty hard to change a budget too much, because if you do, you start either cutting too much or you stop doing anything.�

Thirty years of firefighting honoured DEKA DISTRICT DIANA FORSTER 250-593-2155

2012 heralds the 30th anniversary of both Deka Lake and District Volunteer Fire Department (DLDVFD) and its Ladies Auxiliary (LA). To honour the occasion, the LA arranged a sumptuous dinner for all their volunteers, which totalled some 80 guests. Catered by Interlakes Community Association at Deka Fire Hall, the March 27 event included numerous door prizes and a beautiful cake inscribed “30th Anniversary DLDVFD.” Of special note is the 30-year service of original firefighters Terry Allan and Gary Biro, who were both recognized with

a certificate, and who will be suitably honoured by the Cariboo Regional District later in the year. A 15-year pin was presented to Bob Warner, and fiveyear pins went to Bob McCune and Ted Weight. Darrell Barlow and David Regehr were both working and, therefore, were not present to receive their 10-year pins. LA president Lorna Wiebe presented 30-year service pins to original members Ruth Allan, Moira Davies and Marion Trail, while Bev Traxler and Ally White received fiveyear pins. Thanks go especially to the LA’s Joyce Rowe for “getting it all together.” Spring sale It’s time to remind residents, especially the “summer” variety, that the May long weekend includes the Sulphurous Spring Sale and Deka’s Bake Sale on May 20.

Yewell: colourful eclectic display of art Heather Nelson Free Press

Local artist Marilyn Yewell has taken inspiration from the Cariboo landscape and has expanded her collection of artist works. “This is my therapy,” she says. “I’m a full-time social worker and art has always been a part of my life.” Her “therapy” is colourful and vibrant, ranging from acrylics, oils and encaustic pictures. As a member of the Cariboo Artists Guild (CAG), Yewell says she has learned so much through the guild members, as well as by having the opportunity to attend professional work-

shops. “I attended a class by Dave Langevin, which energized me in learning more about colour.” She adds Langevin taught the use of pure colour to create the colours and light of an artwork. An admitted procrastinator, Yewell says she used acrylic quite a bit since it took less time, especially if she had a show coming up. Now, she enjoys working with oils, saying it gives her more time to blend her colours. She adds the results are worth the extra trouble. “I use to be a watercolour snob ... I thought it was more difficult and, there-

fore, in my mind, more artistic. “Now, I know all mediums have their challenges and their advantages.” Noting she has constantly attended art classes throughout her life, Yewell says she enjoys the ever-changing learning and expanding of her talents. Some of her landscape works are from photos taken around the South Cariboo. Moving to the area 10 years ago, Yewell says she joined the CAG in 2005. She adds it is a great group of people. “Our [CAG] is calling our summer show, Fakes and Forgeries, displaying art based on another artists

work. We can paint any artist we want, from a Rembrandt to whomever.” Yewell adds she is going to paint an oldtime artist’s work,’ who and what, however, is remaining a secret. “The ‘Afternoon Riders’ painting is a companion piece to a scene I did in Langevin’s class,” she says, adding it is like the Fakes and Forgeries painting. She notes the painting is from a photo of friends taking a ride through the country. Her artwork will be displayed until the end of April at the Showcase Gallery in the South Cariboo Business Centre, 475 Birch Ave.

The Friends of Lac des Roches and Birch Lake invite everyone to attend a presentation on the watershed area April 18 at the Bridge Lake Elementary School. Steve Mericle from the fisheries branch of British Columbia Ministry of Environment will discuss the health of the watershed and potential problems with development and resource activity, as well as fish stocking success - a

key topic of interest to many area fishers. The stocked lakes include Muddy, Little Lac des Roches, Lac des Roches, Birch and Phinetta. Mericle did a similar presentation last month on the Sheridan and Bridge lakes areas and also has information on them. The presentation from 1 to 4 p.m. is open to anyone at no cost and promises to be an informative and entertaining afternoon.

World-class violinist kick starts Arts and Culture Week By Dennis Tupman The BC Arts Council has declared April 22-29 as Arts and Culture Week. We are fortunate to have a world-class violinist Jack Glatzer kick start this celebration in 100 Mile House, followed by the 100 Mile Festival of the Arts. Both of these events showcase the importance of some the arts and culture in our community. On April 22, Jack will give an informal concert at the 100 Mile United Church at 49 Dogwood Ave., starting at 7 p.m. Jack is a person who fig-

ures strongly as a musician and human being in my family’s life. I first met Jack in Kitimat more than 50 years ago. He appeared as one of the artists on what was then called “The Alaska Music Trail,” a perennial series of concerts of standout musicians. A Chicago impresario travelled to Alaska and was saddened by how few concerts were affordable in that region. He started communicating to a number of artists to see if they would come to remote communities along the way to Alaska.

As a young teacher in Kitimat, I was blessed with a perennial cornucopia of performances year after year. These concerts changed my life. He is currently travelling in North America. He agreed to detour to 100 Mile House to visit and to give a short concert. Jack is a remarkably engaging and humble man, destined to bring his form of great classical music to the masses. He has travelled all over the world, appeared in a number of feature films, and delighted

audiences of all ages, in dozens of countries. He is also giving a workshop in 100 Mile on April 23, at 4 p.m. to local violinists. Jack, as I have indicated, performed all over the world, receiving rave reviews. He is one of the few violinists who have dared to stage all 24 incredibly difficult Paganini Caprices in the same program. His repertoire of unaccompanied Bach works is also most impressive. We are so fortunate to have him visit 100 Mile House, and

to offer this impromptu concert. Some “friends” from the local area will also appear on the same program. My life has been blessed by knowing and hearing this fascinating man. I am thrilled I will be able to hear him again in a live performance in 100 Mile. Jack has agreed to give the majority of the voluntary gate receipts (after expenses) for this informal concert to the100 Mile & District General Hospital Auxiliary.

COUNTRY TIRE

Area logging uncovers landscape Interlakes Volunteer Fire Department, aid and comfort their neighbours during times of crisis as first responders. Local crafts Our talented neighbour Eva Bechtel will show a few of her many crafting talents this month at the Bridge Lake Library’s Community Showcase. Eva’s fabric painting is well-known, as several area ladies proudly wear the silk scarves they painted at one of Eva’s classes, hosted by the Bridge Lake Community School Society. Her display will include examples of her painting, knitting and beading, which may be offered in future craft classes. Logging changes everything Logging east of Lac des Roches has changed the viewscape for decades to come.

With the border of thick pine trees gone from the sides of the road, driving Highway 24 is like being in a whole new place. Just west of the Opax Café, travellers can now get a glimpse of pristine Birch Lake, previously hidden by several kilometres of dense forest. One neighbour has lamented the loss of an exceptional huckleberry patch to the logging vehicles, but will get some enjoyment from scouting out the untouched forest for a new source this summer. Birders active Wendy Marshall will lead the first summer birding expedition April 12. The destination is Green Lake and the birders will be in search of bluebirds, cranes hawks, and others species. People with any level of birding interest are invited to join in on this fun morning, which will

start out and end at the Bridge Lake Elementary School. Meet at the school at 7:30 a.m. where car pooling and fuel cost sharing will be arranged. Let Wendy know if you are attending by tonight (April 11) at 250-593-2327. The group will be back at the school by noon. Rural critters It is satisfying to see the return of so much wildlife, as it reinforces the fact, that despite deep lingering snow and below zero temperatures, spring is here. For several weeks,

the noisy crows have drowned out the more pleasant songs of the robins and blackbirds. There are daily sightings of the year’s firsts — two being Canada geese on April 2 and a lone butterfly on April 3.

Lac la Hache was one of The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay stops and it passed through town on March 27. Lac la Hache had three Medal Bearers, including Nancy Frost, formerly of Lac la Hache, Cindy Grant and 91-year-old James Milliken, who rode a bike because he had recently injured himself. They all had their turn carrying the relay medal for about 250 metres to the Lac la Hache Community Hall. They were greeted by a crowd of people, including members of the Lac la Hache Volunteer Fire

ONE DAY AT A TIME The story of Lumber and founders David and Susan Ainsworth, detailing the

HISTORY OF 100 MILE HOUSE and AREA One Day at a Time documents the tremendous revolution that took place in the B.C. Interior’s forest industry three and four decades ago. In one way or another, Dave Ainsworth has had his hand in every aspect of this revolution. Dave is one of those people who knows how to put his vision into practice. It’s this tremendous resourcefulness we owe him credit for. I know of no other book that so accurately records the vital changes that have taken place in the woods and at the sawmills; it’s a record that will beneďŹ t the whole industry. Ray Williston, B.C. Minister of Lands and Forests, 1956-1972
