Cash stores ordered to pay consumers back AUTUMN MacDONALD Observer Reporter Ordered to pay back “millions� of dollars in fees, The Cash Store and Instaloans, are denying the allegations. But the Consumer Protection BC agency maintains a 2010 investigation concluded Cash Store Financing, which owns both The Cash Store and Instaloans, was charging customers more than the maximum legal amount of $23 per $100 on payday loans by charging additional fees to issue loans on cash cards. The payday lender was issued a compliance order

in November 2010 to stop charging the unlawful fees and refund customers. “Payday loan consumers cannot be charged extra for cash cards, that is the law,� Vice President of Corporate Relations, Consumer Protection BC, Manjit Bains said. “This decision sends a clear message to the industry and to consumers that consumers must never have to pay more than $23 for every $100 borrowed.� Cash Store has been ordered to comply with B.C. payday lending laws and refund consumers who have been charged since

November 1, 2009. They have also been ordered to pay a $25,000 administrative penalty as well as costs incurred by Consumer Protection BC. The terms of the settlement is conditioned on each class member submitting a claim. Each of which is entitled to receive a refund of up to 100 per cent of the broker fees they paid plus interest, subject to reductions for legal expenses and repayment of any unpaid loans. Refunds will be paid 50 per cent in cash and 50 per cent in vouchers, redeemable for cash in three years from their issuance or are

redeemable immediately for services from a Cash Store or Instaloans location. To fund the payment of claims, The Cash Store and Instaloans will establish a settlement fund of more than $18.5 million in cash and vouchers. The precise amount of your refund will depend upon the total amount of the claims made against this settlement fund. However, Cash Store Financial disagrees with the order and is considering whether or not to launch an appeal. Adding, in a release, “the quantum associated with any potential

refund would not be significant.� Consumer Protection has vowed to monitor the situation. “Consumers may contact Cash Store to inquire about repayment processes. Their head office may be a good place to start. If they are having issues around a repayment, we invite consumers to contact us. They can call us toll free at 1-888-5649963 or email us at info@ consumerprotectionbc. ca,� Consumer Protection BC manager of public relations Tatiana ChabeauxSmith said. The company reminds

consumers to consider the following when utilizing a payday service: • You cannot be charged more than 23 per cent of the amount you borrowed – no matter what. • You should not be charged for the cost of acquiring a cash card in the context of a payday loan. • Insurance is optional. It’s okay to tell the business that you don’t want insurance. • If you are getting your third loan in two months and you get paid every two weeks, you can pay it back over three pay periods (two pay periods if paid monthly).

Luminaries are special bags purchased for $5, in honour of someone who has experienced cancer. People can decorate their own bags or have volunteers write the names on the bags. The Luminary ceremony is the “Remember” part of Relay For Life when we take a pause from the fun activities and walking the track to reflect upon those who have lost their battle with cancer, those who are currently in the fight of their lives and reflect on the gratitude we feel for loved ones who have survived. Members of the entire community are invited to purchase luminaries for someone they would like to honour or remember at Relay. The bags are placed around the track and a tea light burns in each one. New this year, people are asked to bring canned goods to Relay Day to weigh down the bags – all donations go to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

To

honour and remember those who have fought the fight.

Doreen W.

Luminaries can be purchased at the CCS Resource Centre, online at www.relaybc.ca/quesnel, at most banks Aprl 13 and May 18 and at the first three Farmers’ markets in May. They may also be purchased at Relay For Life, May 26. For information contact Cathy, 250-747-2510.

Foundation hits $40,000 mark From A2 The Gala was well attended and included a wonderful meal catered by the River Rock Pub and Restaurant, a fundraising auction led by auctioneer Wayne Wark and to cap the evening, fun and spirited music by the Orange Years. Holly Nelson won the deluxe Rocky Mountaineer Trip, donated by Rocky Mountaineer Vacations. The Foundation began in 2001 with a $50,000 grant from the BC Winter Games Legacy Fund and a matching grant from the City of Quesnel. It is a registered charity, meeting the needs of Quesnel and district through the growth and management of permanent endowment funds. These funds now total $1,217,000, while income distributions have provided more than $220,000 in grants for community projects since 2002. For further information about the foundation, contact Coffey, 250-992-5495 or visit www.quesnelfoundation.ca.

ARBUTUS ROAD ‒ AREA A, B, C and I

Volunteers recognized In recognition of National Volunteer Week (April 15 – 21), ICBC is thanking approximately 20 volunteers in Quesnel for their continued support in making the community safer for everyone. Throughout northern B.C., over 130 volunteers spent more than 2,200 hours delivering road safety programs in 2011. “These volunteers care passionately about the safety of their neighbourhoods,” local ICBC road safety coordinator, Dave Turko said. “They work tirelessly to help make Quesnel roads safer for everyone. Their dedication is remarkable and truly appreciated. On behalf of all our customers and everyone at ICBC, thank you. You are truly making a difference.” In 2011, Stolen Auto Recovery program volunteers in Quesnel scanned over 140 licence plates to help identify stolen vehicles. Each year, volunteers help recover hundreds of stolen vehicles in B.C. With their support, there’s been a 71 per cent decrease in vehicle thefts and 64 per cent decrease in vehicle break-ins in B.C. since 2003.

Chamber applauds Nazko leadership The Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce is feeling very optimistic! We have had meetings over the last few weeks that are indicative of some exciting possibilities for our region. March 13, the Chamber coordinated a meeting with the Department of National Defence and Canadian Forces. We discussed the evolving significance of Northern B.C. and the potential security challenges with the proposed pipe line projects and lack of a Canadian Forces base in Northern B.C. We discussed our concerns around interface fire challenges and flooding due to the devastation of the mountain pine beetle. Out of this meeting there is ongoing dialogue with our Economic Development Officer April Goffic, around potential opportunities and partnerships for our region with the Canadian Forces. Lieutenant Tony Wright is also interested in connecting with families in Quesnel that have loved ones in the forces and we mentioned the special recognition day coordinated by our Quesnel Rodeo Club at the BCRA Finals. March 14, we had an exceptional presentation from Nazko First Nation on the proposed Nazko Gateway Project which calls for the expansion of three-phase power,

creating a westward gateway designed to spur significant long-term economic development and business investments throughout the Nazko, Quesnel and the Cariboo Regional District. The start-up investment and longterm operations of the projects identified in the plan would inject billions of dollars into the economy and generate thousands of long-term, wellpaying jobs, directly and indirectly, for many years. This is the type of vision and diversification that we need to be exploring. We applaud Nazko First Nation for their leadership in coordinating the partnerships and bringing all levels of local government and the business community to the table. No matter what obstacle or opportunity, we will flourish as a region by working together. March 29, we had a full house at our Chamber Member Appreciation event. It was a fun evening where new businesses and members had the opportunity to network. We were delighted that the business delegation from China was able to attend and we were able to connect them with various local businesses. There are some very exciting announcements coming shortly that will have a significant benefit to our community and we are proud to be a part of this dialogue. We would like to congratulate Tracey

Granger, of Essentials Boutique, for winning our Membership Drive. We would like to thank Zack for providing us with an update of the Long Board Team skating to Vancouver to raise funds for cancer. We would also like to thank Eric for his presentation on his program to raise funds for bursaries for people coming from single parent homes. This is the type of youth leadership that will drive our community to success in the future. Our Business Resource Team, which includes Community Futures, the City of Quesnel, Economic Development and the Chamber of Commerce, launched an exciting campaign at the event, where we will be going out and visiting new businesses in our community. Upcoming Chamber events include a Tourism Stakeholder meeting on April 17 from 2 – 4 p.m. at the Visitor Centre. We are seeking operator’s ideas on unique packages and marketing messages to better promote our region. We live in a spectacular part of the world and this really is our opportunity to hear from our tourism members. You can also check out our website at www. quesnelchamber. com or our facebook page ,at Quesnel and District Chamber of Commerce, for information on

upcoming community events. If you are a member and you would like the Chamber to promote your event or special offer contact Patty, our events coordinator and manager of our Visitor Centre, 250992-8716 or qvisitor @quesnelbc.com. The Economic Development office has a facebook page that promotes local business, showcases new businesses and promotes events and activities in Quesnel. Join the page by going to www.facebook. com/qcedc; locally crafted prizes and Quesnel items are awarded on a regular basis through the site for those signed up. QCEDC also has a blog that showcases community information, statistics and comparison facts: http://quesnelinfo. blogspot.ca. Community Futures

of the North Cariboo also has a facebook page. Our Annual General Meeting will be on May 17 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., at the Billy Barker Casino Showroom. We are bringing in a very special speaker, Dr. Franzi Ng, who will be presenting How to Succeed in Any Economy: Overcoming the 10 Classic Business Performance Blocks. Doors open at 11 a.m., with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. Our AGM will be a five-minute presentation of our financials and a message from the president, followed by an hour presentation by our guest speaker. Tickets are $20 and are available at the Visitor Centre. The Chamber is also gathering all of our member information to put into our Chamber Directory, which we send off to

be published on April 20. If you want your business listed in the directory please ensure that you submit your information soon. We would like to thank all of our members

Workshop rediscovers pride within Over the last year, many of our community members and service providers have been working together in an effort to address the root causes of family violence in our homes and communities. The journey began in February 2011 with the Whunch’ anats ‘undel (Leaving Here- Redefining the Family Circle) interpersonal and lateral violence workshop that took place over an intensive three days at the Nazko First Nation Band office. This first workshop was attended by over fifty community members and covered topics such as cultural assimilation, colonization, the effects of lateral violence and how being Aboriginal is more than just ‘beads and feathers’. As a result of the workshop and discussions regarding role modeling and a need for change, the Whunch’ anats ‘undel- Rediscovering the Pride Within project was generated. The Rediscovering the

Pride Within project has been a year long process that involves working with three different groups of thirty youths from grades six to twelve. The program is structured in an attempt to identify and evaluate how social media, ‘pop and gang culture’ and internal perceptions of one’s self define and shape who we are and how ‘successful’ we become, based on our own definitions of the word. Success is different and fluid for every individual and the program objective is to work with the youth to identify and provide skills and assets to them that promote self esteem and ‘success’ in the eye of the beholder. The Rediscovering the Pride Within project began in September 2011 and is continuing throughout the school year. The main sessions are facilitated by Sgt. Cecil Sveinson from Winnipeg Police Services. Cecil is a member of the Bear Clan and is a pipe carrier, lodge conductor and works throughout

 APPETIZERS 

the summers with his ceremonial family at Sundances in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. He sits on many committees at the international, national, provincial and grassroots levels including the Chair of Manitoba Education’s Aboriginal Education Directorate Advisory Committee, Manitoba’s Gang Prevention Community Coalition, Winnipeg’s Sexually Exploited Youth Community Coalition and Liaison to the Manitoba Murdered and Missing Women Action Group and Task Force. Cecil has traditional spiritual beliefs and works hard to carry and preserve what the ancestors have left for us. Many of the youth involved in the program began fund raising for and attended to the Gathering Our Voices youth conference in Nanaimo, BC over spring break. The Gathering Our Voices is an annual youth conference in which the youth will have the opportunities to

interact and participate in workshops involving leadership and role modeling, and to learn what other communities are doing to work towards safe homes and communities. April 17, 5 p.m. the Whunch’ anats ‘undel committee is hosting another evening presentation event with Cecil and some of the youth that have participated in the program over the last year The evening presentation will be at the UNBC foyer (100 Campus Way) and will provide interested parties with information on the development of the program, the accomplishments of the youth and a summarized version of Cecil’s material, which discusses pride, culture, self confidence and positive role modeling. Please join us for the evening event and enjoy great conversation and company as we discuss and demonstrate how our youth are discovering the pride within. –Submitted by Cst. Jennifer Collins

OPINIONS Reality nonsense

I

t’s an embarrassment. The Real Housewives of Vancouver aired this week with five overly-tanned, bottle blondes (OK so there’s one brunette) strutting downtown streets in clingy dresses better suited for their muchyounger counterparts. Not only do these women shamelessly spout cringe-worthy lines such as “Vancouver is a gold mine and I love to go digging!” but they’re being dubbed as “like a hooker, only smarter.” Really? These are the “real housewives of Vancouver”? Not the ones rising before dawn so they can enjoy a quiet moment before making breakfast, packing lunches, battling traffic, cleaning house, baking cupcakes for a fundraiser, potty-training the dog, making dinner, setting a budget, supporting their husband and scheduling appointments, all while managing to squeeze in a run along the sea wall? There’s nothing “real” about these women, except the fact they are shamelessly ruining Canadian women’s reputation, all while sporting creepy botox-induced duck lips. And if that’s not enough, television executives are saying the show is a proverbial mirror – “Canadians love to see themselves reflected,” vice-president of original content at Shaw, Christine Shipton said. Oh wow – thanks “ladies.” This is not an accurate portrayal of Canadian housewives. I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s not an accurate portrayal of most stay-at-home moms and wives and it’s best left to the Real Housewives of Atlanta, California, Texas or wherever our American neighbours first filmed this disaster idea. This isn’t entertainment, it’s insulting and only encourages bobble-head-bullies with a penchant for “shiny things.” –Autumn MacDonald, Observer

Have some time on your hands? H ello again. Saturday’s double meat draw was a

success. The crowd was loud with laughter and the meat was plentiful. All the winners were happy with their choices. Next Friday at 4.30 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m., we do it all over again. Join us. The Spring Fling is still in the works. Hopefully, we can sell enough tickets to make it worth our while preparing a meal and fun evening. The tickets are $15 each for beef stew with dessert. Dancing to CDs will insure good music. Doors open at 6 p.m., dinner at 6.30 p.m. See you there. April 29 will see the Legion Hall very busy. We are hosting a Benefit Dance and Jam for Arlene Loxterkamp who is suffering some health problems. Arlene was inducted into the Quesnel Hall of Fame for musicians in February – a very accomplished

LEGION LINES musician. There will be a dessert auction. Donations of labelled desserts will be greatly appreciated. All funds raised will go to Arlene. Don’t miss a chance for good dance music, visits with friends and doing a good deed. This all happens Sunday April 29, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m. There will be a $10 charge at the door also for Arlene. Not into dancing or dessert auctions? Maybe you prefer outdoor activity? We have some of that as well. The Legion beach needs volunteers to help with spring clean up.

only $150 for a six by six. Any home-based, nonprofit groups, or regular businesses are welcome. What a great chance to invite Quesnel to see what you have to offer them. I understand last year there were more than 10,000 people through the arenas during the weekend. Just imagine! The Legion Auxillary ladies are offering a pancake breakfast Sunday May 12. What a nice way to say thanks mom for all you’ve done for us. I hope someone treats me to breakfast. Sounds great. I have heard talk of a fishing derby in June. The plans sound wonderful so far. I’ll update you further on this one when I get more details. It sounds like Father’s Day may be the weekend for this one. Interested? Until next week. Remember What goes around comes around.

There will be lots of oppotunity to help through the summer as all kinds of work is planned for this year. May will be upon us before we know it. Have you started your seedlings yet? The plant sale is May 5. On that day we plan to include baking for sale, bottle drive, car wash, Canadian Tire money donations, penny drive etc... who knows what else. There will even be a meat draw in the lounge. This will be a great day at the Legion. Mother’s Day weekend is shaping up nicely. The Legion Lifestyles Show still has some room for booths if you wish to display your wares. Booths are only $350 for the entire weekend for a 10 by 10 or

Youth with Northstar Baptist Church travelled to Mexico to build a home for an impoverished family and experienced the culture and its people. Stacey Headey photos

Quesnel youth discover the gift of giving on a mission to Mexico ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter

N

orthstar Baptist Church youth pastor Wes Linde was on the road again with 24 youth (ages 15 – 20) and 11 adults, who used their spring break from school to serve others in God’s love. They traveled to Vincente Gurrero, Mexico to build a house for a poor family who have never lived in a house before. The youth fundraised during the year to make this possible. Every two years, youth from Northstar’s youth group send a mission group to build a house. This is the fifth house they’ve constructed. In just four days, the group, with a lot of hard work and some rain, built the house. In addition, they also constructed an outhouse, shower house and a chicken coop which will help the family become self-sustaining. “The family we built the house for became very close to our group, especially their kids to our youth,” one

of the adults on the mission Stacey Headey said. “There was lots of laughter and then a lot of tears at the end. The family was so moved by our love they accepted Jesus as their Saviour. The father also asked to be involved in the next house build to help other Mexican people.” During the course of the build, many neighbourhood children came to the house everyday, mostly without shoes. Headey said the group decided to purchase shoes for all the kids. “Our youth played with the kids everyday and they became close to these children,” she said. “They knew them all by name.” She went on to say the youth also visited an orphanage and an area called Campos. “Campos was a special project where we went to a very poor, secluded community and after their regular bible camp, our youth handed out food and backpacks which were filled with household goods and more food,” Headey said. “Our youth got to see a lot of poverty

while there, but also to serve and touch the lives of the people there. “All the youth were very moved and changed by this experience. We had a great group of kids. People just don’t realize how poor these people really are, unless they actually go down there and see for themselves. It’s really sad. It makes you want to do more and not take your life for granted.” Headey also said there were a lot of kids hanging around everyday, all day long, because they couldn’t afford to go to school. “School for them costs about $150 a year. School is a lifechanging event for them.” If you would like to make a tax-deductable donation to help fund the next house project, or to help put a child through school, send your donation to Northstar Church. “You can be assured it will be life changing to a family,” Headey said. – with files from Stacey Headey

Volunteer Citizen of the Year nominees Coles, Miller and Boudreau up for award

Sheri Coles is one of three nominees for the 2011 Volunteer Citizen of the Year and brings a wealth of commitment to her volunteer pursuits. With a ready smile she admitted volunteering is fun and coupled with a commitment to making Sheri Coles the community a better place, Coles is out in the public almost year round. As a member of the Integris team, she leads the charge in many company-led campaigns but said where she places her personal volunteer time is totally her decision. Relay For Life, Women’s Fall Challenge, Community Foundation and several singular fundraisers keep Coles busy outside her professional life. Coles is well aware of the need to balance volunteering, career and family, so when she experiences physical cues that tell her it’s time to back off a bit, she listens. However, this consummate volunteer also credits her staff at Integris with support in all her volunteer efforts and says the company encourages volunteerism but the decision is always in the hands of the employees. The rewards are many, Coles said and possibly the most rewarding is to see an idea put forward that brings in money for the cause. As to her nomination, Coles feels honoured. Quesnel’s 2011 Volunteer Citizen of the Year will be announced at the gala event, April 17. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. at the Legion hall. Tickets are $20 each at City Hall.

MLA Musings

What About Our Future? There’s been a lot of attention paid to Burns Lake since its mill burned down in January this year. A recovery team was assigned to help the community through its immediate crisis and help people find work as quickly as possible. I give full credit to Minister Bell and MLA John Rustad for the immediacy of the government’s response. However, recent announcements by the provincial government in Burns Lake ($2.4 million for their $3 million community center), and work being done behind the scenes to secure a timber supply to entice the mill owners to rebuild, reveal an inherent weakness in the government’s overall response to the mountain pine beetle epidemic. Recent work by government and the major licensees suggests that under the current land use plans we’ll run out of commercially viable timber in the central interior faster than we expected. Yet, after at least ten years of knowing this day of reckoning was coming, we still don’t have a game plan for the mill closures that are now on the near horizon. Therefore, it’s imperative that, while they may not have had a mill burn down, every community in the mountain pine beetle zone be assigned a recovery team now. Every company operating in this zone also needs to know the government will manage the impending dramatic reductions in available timber in a manner that is fair and market-based and not in a way that will see government picking winners and losers. Unfortunately, the provincial government is apparently drafting legislation that will assign timber to Burns Lake to enable the rebuilding of the mill there, suggesting it is willing to put itself in the position of determining who will win and who will lose as cut levels come crashing down in the next few years. While I feel for the people of Burns Lake, there is no justification for assigning timber to a future potential mill in that community when doing so will mean mill closures in other communities. Until an overarching plan has been developed for the entire mountain pine beetle zone and every community in that area has had an opportunity to engage their First Nations, stakeholders, and companies in planning for their future, the provincial government must avoid taking a knee-jerk approach that will pit one community against another and create an uneven playing field for forest companies and their investors. www.bobsimpsonmla.ca

much more than this. In the book of Ephesians in the Bible we read that we are saved by grace, not by anything we do. Put a different way, it’s God’s unmerited favour. This means that when we come to realize and admit that we stand condemned by our own sin, God’s grace (His kindness we don’t deserve) reaches out to save us. Unfortunately, many who have received this gift have fallen into a life of laws and regulations. When we do this, we lose much of our joy and freedom. We then struggle desperately to please God and others but never quite make the grade. Others see grace as an excuse to be lazy and a loophole to continue sinning. This is just not true. The Bible tells us that by this same grace we are able to say ‘no’ to sin and are able to work harder.

Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce Update by: Executive Director Coralee Oakes April 13, 2012 The Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce is feeling very optimistic! We have had meetings over the last few weeks that are indicative of some exciting possibilities for our region. On March 13th the Chamber coordinated a meeting with the Department of National Defence and Canadian Forces. We discussed the evolving significance of Northern BC and the potential security challenges with the proposed pipe line projects and lack of a Canadian Force base in Northern BC. We discussed our concerns around interface fire challenges and flooding due to the devastation of the mountain pine beetle. Out of this meeting there is ongoing dialogue with our Economic Development Officer April Goffic, around potential opportunities and partnerships for our region with the Canadian Forces. Lieutenant Tony Wright is also interested in connecting with families in Quesnel that have loved ones in the forces and we mentioned the special recognition day coordinated by our Quesnel Rodeo Club at the BCRA Finals. On March 14th we had an exceptional presentation from Nazko First Nation on the proposed Nazko Gateway Project, which calls for the expansion of three-phase power, creating a westward gateway designed to spur significant long-term economic development and business investments throughout the Nazko, Quesnel and the Cariboo Regional District. The start-up investment and long-term operations of the projects identified in the plan would inject billions of dollars into the economy and generate thousands of long-term, well-paying jobs, directly and indirectly, for many years. This is the type of vision and diversification that we need to be exploring. We applaud Nazko First Nation for their leadership in coordinating the partnerships and brining all levels of local government and the business community to the table. No matter what obstacle or opportunity, we will flourish as a region by working together. On March 29th we had a full house at our Chamber Member Appreciation event. It was a fun evening where new businesses and members had the opportunity to network. We were delighted that the business delegation from China was able to attend and we were able to connect them with various local businesses. There are some very exciting announcements coming shortly that will have a significant benefit to our community and we are proud to be a part of this dialogue. We would like to congratulate Tracey Granger of Essentials Boutique, for winning our Membership Drive. We would like to thank Zack for providing us with an update of the Long Board Team skating to Vancouver to raise funds for cancer. We would also like to thank Eric for his presentation on his program to raise funds for bursaries for people coming from single parent homes. This is the type of youth leadership that will drive our community to success in the future. Our Business Resource Team which includes Community Futures, the City of Quesnel, Economic Development and the Chamber of Commerce, launched an exciting campaign at the event, where we will be going out and visiting new businesses in our community. Upcoming Chamber events includes a Tourism Stakeholder meeting on April 17th from 2-4 at the Visitor Centre. We are seeking operator’s ideas on unique packages and marketing messages to better promote our region. We live in a spectacular part of the world and this really is our opportunity to hear from our tourism members. You can also check out our website at www.quesnelchamber.com or our Facebook page at Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce for information on upcoming community events. If you are a member and you would like the Chamber to promote your event or special offer contact Patty our events coordinator and manager of our Visitor Centre at 250.992.8716 or qvisitor @quesnelbc.com. The Economic Development office has a Facebook page that promotes local business, showcases new businesses and promotes events and activities in Quesnel. Join the page by going to www.facebook.com/qcedc - locally crafted prizes and Quesnel items are awarded on a regular basis through the site for those signed up. QCEDC also has a blog that showcases community information, statistics and comparison facts, http://quesnelinfo.blogspot.ca. Community Futures of the North Cariboo also has a facebook page. Our Annual General Meeting will be on May 17th from 11:00-1:00 at the Billy Barker Casino Showroom. We are bringing in a very special speaker Dr. Franzi Ng, who will be presenting “How to Succeed in Any Economy: Overcoming the 10 Classic Business Performance Blocks”. You may read her testimonials at http://drng.net/ HowtoSucceed.htm. Doors will open at 11:00 with lunch served at 11:30. Our AGM will be a 5 minute presentation of our financials and message from the President followed by an hour presentation by our guest speaker. Our elections were held in January. Tickets are $20 and are available at the Visitor Centre. The Chamber is also gathering all of our member info to put into our Chamber Directory which we send off to be published on April 20th. If you want your business listed in the directory please ensure that you submit your information in soon. We would like to thank all of our members for your renewals and will send out your membership card, receipt letter and directory in May.

New face in the race Boudreau nominated for 2011 Volunteer Citizen of the Year ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter When Helene Boudreau was told she’d been nominated for 2011 Volunteer Citizen of the Year she couldn’t believe it. “I do a few things but nothing major,” she said modestly. “It’s just a couple of hours here and there.” However, that translates into sitting on the executives of several organizations including the Seniors’ Society, lawn bowling, horseshoe club, Royal Canadian Legion as well as organizing fundraisers and other activities for a variety of causes. In every letter of support on Boudreau’s behalf, they talked about her leadership skills, dedication to the organi-

zation and her ability to get things done, among other excellent qualities. It’s an honour to have your fellow volunteers think that highly of you,” she said. Simply put, Boudreau said all her volunteer commitments give her a reason to get out of bed in the morning. “I do it because I enjoy the sport or the organization,” she said. “So you need people to organize and keep it going.” She added her involvement with the Red Cross Loans Cupboard was in response to an ad in the paper. “Somehow I found myself helping with the administration and organization of

these groups.” When asked what makes a great volunteer, Boudreau took a minute to answer. “A great volunteer has a willingness to do the work that needs to be done

regardless of the task; takes great pleasure in working with others; and has an ability to recognize when you’re not enjoying it anymore, then it’s time to move on.” Quesnel’s 2011 Vol-

The crossword puzzle is a beloved yet relatively new component of popular culture. Crossword puzzles have evolved into popular pastimes, educational tools for children and methods of keeping the brain sharp. Arthur Wynne, an English journalist who emigrated to the United States in the early 20th century, is credited with the creation of the first crossword puzzle. He is the first modern-day cruciverbalist, or crossword creator. Wynne wrote the puzzle for an American newspaper called the New York World. It was published on Sunday, December 21, 1913. The first crossword was actually called a "word-cross" and was diamond shaped. The name of the puzzle was later switched to "cross-word" and then crossword.Wynne said he based his crossword puzzle on a game that was played in ancient Pompeii. It was called "magic squares" when translated from Latin. Although the crossword puzzle became a frequent inclusion in newsprint, it wasn't until 1924 when publisher Simon & Schuster published the first collection of crosswords in book form that the crossword became available in a more widespread manner. Crossword puzzles are governed by a series of rules. There are different types of grids for these puzzles depending on origin. For example, crosswords often follow an American style, a British style, a Japanese style, and a Swedish style. Each of these styles has their own series of rules. These rules pertain to the number of cells and how many are shaded or white. A white cell that is part of two entries, meaning part of an Across and Down

How to play: • Each row must contain the numbers 1 to 9 • Each column must contain the numbers 1 to 9 • And each set of 3 by 3 boxes must contain the numbers 1 to 9.

250-992-9405 378 Vaughan St. clue, is called checked. A white cell that is only part of one clue is unchecked. Crossword grids such as those appearing in most North American newspapers and magazines feature solid areas of white squares. Every letter is checked, and usually each answer is required to contain at least three letters. In these puzzles shaded squares are usually limited to about onesixth of the design. Another component of North American puzzles is that the grid should have symmetry when rotated 180 degrees. The pattern should appear the same even if the puzzle is turned upside down. Most puzzle designs require the white cells to also be connected in one mass through shared sides, which is a concept called being orthogonally contiguous. Puzzles are often standard sizes. Easier puzzles have fewer cells and may have 15x15 squares. Puzzles can increase in complexity as they grow larger, up to 25x25. Many newspapers start out with easier puzzles earlier in the work week and move to a harder puzzle in time for the Sunday puzzle. In terms of American-style puzzles where all of the white cells are checked, not all of the solutions will be full words. American puzzles allow for abbreviations, variant spellings or even foreign words. This isn't the case with British puzzles. Most American puzzles follow a theme. Crossword puzzles have become a component of the daily lives of people all around the world. They continue to be a source of entertainment and even competition.

Remembering the Titanic

Images courtesy of Google

Quesnel connection to Titanic tragedy O

ne hundred years ago, the unthinkable happened when the “unsinkable” Titanic went to her watery grave – be certain to come in to the Quesnel Museum to view the exhibit remembering this tragic event. The sinking of the RMS Titanic occurred on the night of April 14, 1912 in the north Atlantic Ocean, four days into her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. The Quesnel Museum has an exemplary exhibit of Titanic memorabilia. Front and centre in the exhibit is a beautiful silver vanity set. This vanity set was given to Mary Hélène Jane ‘Zette’ Baxter for Christmas in 1896. By 1912 she was 27 and married to Frederick Douglas, a doctor. She was travelling first class on board the Titanic with her mother and her brother. She and her mother shared cabin B58 and her brother, Quigg Edmund Baxter, was next door in B60. All three of the Baxters were on the Titanic as it began to sink. Leading up

PAST TIME to this, the mother, Mrs. James Baxter, had taken her son Quigg and her married daughter, Zette, with her on another of her infrequent excursions to Europe. They booked passage home in one of Titanic’s most expensive suites, B58/60 which cost £247 10s 5d, a sizeable amount even by the standards of the day. They boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg, France (ticket number PC 17558.) ‘Zette and her mother shared a stateroom. Mrs. Baxter was in her stateroom, ill with nausea and found the throb of the engines very relaxing. After hitting the iceberg, the ship’s engines were shut down and she had an anxiety attack. When the alarm was sounded, Quigg carried his mother up the Grand

Staircase and put her and his sister into lifeboat 6. He kissed them goodbye and handed his mother a sterling silver brandy flask so she might keep warm on the open ocean. His mother began to berate him because of his drinking. He cut her short: “Etes vous bien, maman?” “Au revoir, bon espoir vous-autres” (Goodbye and keep up your spirits everyone.) Quigg Baxter drowned in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified. As Zette Baxter Douglas recalled, there was no cause for alarm...to quote Captain Smith “There’s been an accident, but it is alright.” “Quigg didn’t seem at all disturbed” his sister told The Montreal Standard. “While he didn’t relish being parted from us. He bade me farewell bravely.” When the Titanic struck an iceberg, Zette Baxter Douglas and her mother Hélène Baxter were among the survivors, rescued by the Carpathia. Her younger brother died. Zette Baxter Douglas

subsequently was stricken by polio. After her mother died, she escaped an unhappy marriage and left Montreal for the West. The vanity set is now the centrepiece of a small exhibit dedicated to the Titanic. The toiletry set was given to the Museum by Yvonne Snushall. She was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1908. Yvonne’s mother was a friend of Zette (Suzette) Baxter Douglas. Yvonne moved to Quesnel with her husband Barry Snushall in the early 1950’s. Barry was an accountant and Yvonne worked in the Toronto Dominion Bank for 17 years, retiring in 1972. Her touching gift to the museum helps to keep alive the memories of this event. It is donations such as this that lend themselves to preserving the past for generations to come. The artifacts provide an opportunity to take a glimpse into the lives of people we might consider to be privileged or lucky (first class passengers; Titanic survivors) but from the little we know

of them, their lives were perhaps not that pleasant. Would you want to trade places with them? The family history chronicled in our museum is just one of hundreds of such stories from the Titanic. The Baxter family story is one of heartbreak, before and after the sinking. There is more to the Baxter story. In the documentary on the CBC last week they really played up the story of Quigg and his actress/ wife as a “real” story of romance to rival the

Kate Winslett/ Leonardo di Caprio one from the movie. Last year the museum was delighted to add to this exhibit a newspaper from April 19, 1912 with front page coverage of the disaster. This was donated by Keely Doerkson a young lady with a special interest in the Titanic and a frequent museum visitor. Stop in at the Museum and learn more about this momentous occasion and its characters. Honey Affleck is Museum commission chair

LAWN & GARDEN Now that spring has arrived, here’s some tips to get you started JEAN ATKINSON Richbar Golf and Gardens

Here is my advice: burn calories (see list below) not leaves. • All protective coverings on cedars and Dwarf Alberta Spruce should be removed by now. If left on too long, the coverings will have a greenhouse effect and trigger the plant to break dormancy too early. Pull back any protective mulch around tender plants to allow the soil to warm up. • Don’t remove any mulch from the base of your fruit trees as this holds the frost in the ground a little longer, preventing the tree from flowering too early. This is especially true of plum trees. They bloom very early and

often do not bear fruit as the blossoms succumb to frost. • Tidy up your perennials by removing the old foliage. Most perennials can be cut right back, but there are a few exceptions. When cutting Russian Sage, leave at least 12” of old growth on, as the new shoots will emerge from these older buds. In general, it is easy to see if a perennial needs to be cut back completely or not. Some perennials are evergreen and will come through the winter with their leaves still green. Plants like Lavender and Periwinkle do not require pruning back, as they are semi-evergreen. Tall ornamental grasses can be pruned back

to the ground. Small grasses like Fescue and Blue Oat Grass can just have any dead leaves raked out. • All perennials, bulbs, small fruits, fruit trees and shrubs will benefit from an application of granular fertilizer such as 12-1612. It provides a good source of phosphorous, which helps develop a strong root system and is important in flower and fruit production. Apply around the drip line of the plant. • To kill any overwintering fungus or insects spray trees and shrubs with dormant oil and lime –sulfur now before the buds break. Dormant oil controls scale insects that feed by sucking the sap causing twigs and branches to dry

up. Susceptible plants include fruit trees, lilac, elm, mountain ash, juniper and yew. The best time to apply is before the buds break. The spray requires six to eight hours to dry and should be applied when the temperature is above 2 degrees Celsius. • Apply Tanglefoot, a sticky paste, to the bottom of the trees to stop insects from crawling upwards. Don’t apply the Tanglefoot directly onto the bark, but wrap the tree first with a 30cm band of wrap or brown paper. This is a great deterrent to ants. Ants farm aphids by bringing them up the leaves to feed. Then the ants enjoy the sticky nectar that the aphids produce.

• Rototill your garden and flowerbeds once the soil has dried and work in soil amendments such as compost or manure. • Power-rake your lawn prior to fertilizing to reduce thatch build up. Aerating your lawn will reduce compaction and increase the rooting depth of the grass. Remember to locate your underground sprinkler heads before using the aerator. Fertilize your lawn in April with a good slow release fertilizer high in nitrogen such as 25-4-10. • And finally, rake up your leaves and start a compost bin. Don’t contribute to the poor air quality that we have at this time of year by

burning them. Those leaves will benefit your garden more than your smudge fire will.

Tri-ing hard to make it happen

Jonas Gagnon Sports Reporter

There’s a first tri for everyone and to the left is Stacy Osmond on her warm up ride for her first Tri in Wasa Lake. Contributed photo

JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter

A

s winter gives way to spring, the sports change, skiing and snowshoeing become running, biking and swimming; which, this year, will be married with the creation of the new Cariboo Tri Club. Stacy and David Osmond are working on creating a certified club for the growing number of Quesnellers who want more than just running, swimming or cycling. “We figured now’s a good time because there’s a definite gap of things to do in Quesnel,” Stacy said. “There’s a swimming club and there’s a cycling club and there are people who do running clubs through the rec centre, but there’s so many new triathletes out there right now that this is prime picking season. There are so many people who are seeking the knowledge on how to get involved in triathlon and who are looking for answers to how to do their first triathlon and how to train. That’s what we’re here for.’”

Driving Range opened April 4th

Previously for any one who wished to conquer three sports in one go, there existed only the Quesnel Triathlon Association, which organizes a few events in Barkerville, including the Barkerville Rush Relay, but is not certified with Triathlon BC, the governing body for triathletes. Stacy hopes to fill the gap for those who want to run, bike and swim by opening a certified club. That means jumping through the hoops Triathlon BC sets for them. “Things a club needs to do are, have a work out program of some description, hence the group rides, group runs, group swims and at those club activities you need to have someone who is trained by Tri BC, to their standards, as a coach,” David said. “And that has to do with ethics and insurance and making sure people don’t push themselves too hard and injure themselves. Stacy is it for now.” Stacy has just returned from Squamish, where she got the training necessary to become a Triathlon BC coach. Now she just

What the pair is up and running, cycling would like to do, though, and swimming along is introduce people to the nicely. sport. But for many, triathlon “We’d love to have is one of those sports that our tri club have all the seems impossible. The members sign up and costs are many, and the do the P.G. Tri, or go up fitness requirements are there and volunteer. Getstaggering, or so it seems.

Stacy disagrees. “It’s only as hard as you make it,” she said. Which seems strange to people who have been brought up taking part in team athletics where you must keep up with everyone else, or risk letting the team down. Triathlon, in comparison, only has the demands you put on your self. “The biggest competition you have is yourself.” David said. “No one else cares, really, where you place. It’s a very individual sport. Some people go into it because they want to stand on the podium, 99 per cent of the people are there just to say, ‘hey I did a triathlon.’” And you don’t have to challenge a full triathlon on your first outing either. There’s a range of events starting with ‘Try a tri’, up to an olympic triathlon and even higher to the ultraman. The costs vary too, with prices ranging up to $10,000 bikes, or even $10,000 wheels, but a triathlon doesn’t have to cost you anything except time Stacy said. “There are people out

there doing their first triathlon on their mountain bike, their old worn out running shoes and they’ve borrowed a wet suit. It only costs as much as you want it to cost. If you want to go out and spend $10,000 on a racing bike, then you can do that. If you want to ride on your mountain bike, or your hybrid... you can do a triathlon with what you have in your garage.” All of which takes away a lot of the excuses people build up to not do a triathlon. So why should you do it? It’s a well balanced mix. “I’m an ex-ultra marathoner, so I spent a lot of time with aches, pains, hurts and overuse injuries. Now I find I can train the same 12 –14 hours a week but, 99 per cent of the time, I’m injury free cause it’s such well–rounded, diversified training that you’re only doing any one thing, two or three times a week, instead of five or six days a week of run, run, run.” If you want to give it a tri you can contact Stacy Osmond at cariboortiathlon@hotmail.com or by phone at 250-983-9811.

Cariboo unites to take gold Players from across The Cariboo displayed great teamwork as they came together to take gold in Kelowna on the weekend. The Quesnel Denny’s Strikers, Williams Lake Storm and Prince George Kodiaks joined forces this Easter Weekend to enter a U14 Girls team in the Kelowna Icebreaker Soccer Tournament hosted by the Lake Country Youth Soccer Association. The team, named Cariboo United, consisted of eight Quesnel players, three Williams Lake players and two Prince George players under the direction of coaches Dave Blagdon , Gilbert Schotel and Beth Moore. “Even though the players were from three different communities they played extremely well together and worked as a team,” Coach Gilbert Schotel said. “From the solid performance of both keepers (Morgan Moore and Haley Schotel) to the speed of the strikers, this was a true team effort.” The team played two games last Friday, the first being a 3-0 victory over the Kelowna Eagles (Mitchell Redpath,

One step closer to Team B.C. JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter Five players from the bantam provincial champions, the Thunder, were chosen to continue in their quest to be on Team BC. Braden Dale, Jesse Roach, Chad Kimmie, Kurtis Izzard and Brady Powell all took the trip to Vanderhoof for the Northern Region camp. There they were split into teams with the rest of the kids from the north and had three games of hockey to impress the judges. After the games, the boys were individually called into the dressing room and told if they were chosen to go to the B.C. Cup, which was a harrowing experience. “I was nervous. My hands were shaking the whole time,” said Kimmie. The nervousness was unfounded as the five Quesnel players were chosen to go on to the next level in the competition to be in Team B.C., which was a great relief after the nerve–jangling pressure of not knowing.

“It was a big weight lifted off my chest,” said Kimmie, “it felt like I could breath again.” From there the kids go on to play in the U16 BC cup this weekend, which is a jamboree style tournament. This means the 160 players that were chosen from the region camps are mixed to make eight teams. The U16 BC cup is a little more serious the kids said, as they will be staying in a gym with all the other players, not with their parents like the region camp. They will also be barred from using cell phones and other electronic devices. From there chosen players will go on to the U16 Provincial camp, and from there twenty chosen players will continue on to U16 Team B.C. where they play in the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup Three Quesnel referees are attending with the boys. Mitchell Doucette and Matt Fury are refereeing at the event, and Ross Campbell, the district Referee in Chief, will attend as a supervisor.
