Christy Clark speaks in 100 Mile House Christy Clark pledges economy boost, jobs Carole Rooney Free Press

Premier Christy Clark visited 100 Mile House on May 4 to talk about jobs, training and growth. In her address to the North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA) conference delegates, she stressed how important economic development and investment are in building strong communities. Clark granted a few minutes to speak with local media before her speech. Within the next decade, the province’s North will drive economic growth for every community across British Columbia, she said. “We, as a government, need to invest in and support economic development for Northern [B.C.] and recognize the role it’s going to play.” The premier says she believes the province is going to be leading Canada the country forward in economic growth, and explained it’s Northern B.C. that will really be doing that. The single “most important” economic change in the province that will make this happen is the introduction of a new industry in lique-

fied natural gas (LNG), she noted. There will be three pipelines operating by 2020 from the Northeast to the Northwest, Clark explained, as well as added-value opportunities in the northwest. “Not many premiers get to say ‘we are going to enable the creation of a new industry’.” Once the industry is up and running, it will add $600 billion to the provincial Gross Domestic Product, she added. “Just think about the tax revenue that will come from that.” These will be the first LNG facilities in the world that are principally powered by green energy, Clark explained. There are “all kinds” of high-technology services available in the province for spinoff benefits, she said, as well as those supplying green energy. The Cariboo economy has had a “very tough time,” with many trees killed by pine beetle, Clark noted, but she sees some new opportunities arising, particularly in

I think it makes a huge contribution to local economies with very stable, high-paid jobs and a pretty low ecological footprint.” New scholastic funding At the NCLGA con-

ference, the premier also announced $1.6 million for a new training program at the Williams Lake campus of Thompson Rivers University. The training is intended to address a skills shortage, she said, and accomplish it through a collaborative effort with the Interior Logging

Association and regional contractors and licensees. The funding will train 80 unemployed and under employed individuals in an Employment Skills Assessment initiative, beginning this month with truck driver training. Other training will include heavy equip-

ment operation for forestry applications, Clark explained, and as well as for mining, construction and roadbuilding equipment. “You can’t build an economy without people to fill the jobs.... If you train people close to home, they’ll work close to home.”

Wranglers unable to lasso junior hockey team Ken Alexander Free Press

The Revelstoke Grizzlies are staying in Revelstoke, and that means there won’t be a 100 Mile House Wranglers Junior B Hockey Club team playing out of the South Cariboo Rec. Centre this fall. The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) team has had a lot of controversy swirling around it ever since it was learned the Wranglers club was interested in bringing the team to 100 Mile. The Revelstoke Grizzlies Society said it was going to exercise its option to buy the team

back from Grizzlies Sports Entertainment (GES) for $1. Furthermore, GES had to put up a $25,000 bond payable to the society if the team was moved or folded before May 31, 2016. Michael Roberts, former majority owner of GES, recently sold his shares to Lew Hendrickson who was given approval to operate the team in Revelstoke at the May 6 KIJHL board of governors meeting in Castlegar. Wranglers Club president Tom Bachynski attended that meeting and says he was more than a little miffed at the way the takeover was handled. He adds his drive home from

Castlegar was a roller-coaster ride of emotions for him. “On the positive side, however, I got 15 minutes of face time with the governors of the KIJHL.” Bachynski says he got to explain how he thought the Wranglers had a right to takeover even though the 100 Mile club submitted its application after the deadline. “We were guided by the president on how to submit, and we were put on the agenda for the May 6 meeting and, subsequently, we were taken off the agenda.

SHORT TA K E S Four laning Premier Christy Clark recently announced the Phase 2 projects on the Cariboo Connector will be underway by 2017, including 30 more kilometres of four-lane improvements of Highway 97 between Cache Creek and Prince George. The provincial government is investing $200 million over the next five years for Phase 2 of the Cariboo Connector. When Phase 2 is completed, almost 50 per cent of the 440-km highway between Cache Creek and Prince George will be either three or four lanes wide. This will include four-laning north of Willow Road, near 70 Mile House and the Stormy Road four-laning, tying together the previously-constructed Stormy Road North and Bullock Lake Road projects. It also includes the 76 Mile South four-laning, tying together the Stormy and 70 Mile north sections. Calendar . . . . . . . . . . A23 BC Views. . . . . . . . . . . A9 Classifieds . . . . . . . .

Mitch Campsall is new NCLGA president Carole Rooney Free Press

District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall has been acclaimed president of the North Central Local Government Association during the annual general meeting in 100 Mile, May 2-4. Campsall says he’s looking forward to working with the NCLGA membership to move forward with some ongoing initiatives, as well as the numerous new resolutions from the floor at the AGM. “I’ve been working toward this for about three years, and I’m really excited about it.” He notes his experience on the board during the past four years, and as the vice-president this past year, provides a good climate for working along with other longer-term directors and supporting any new board members. “I worked my way up the ladder, and that’s what it is. Once you get in the polls, they keep pushing you.” The staff will also help Campsall and the rest of the board priori-

Mayor Mitch Campsall, left, is the new president of the North Central Local Government Association, after being elected by acclamation at the conference and AGM held in 100 Mile House. The title was handed over by outgoing president Art Kaehn on May 4. tize which issues need addressing quickly, he explains. “The people working around [us] are really phenomenal. It’s a good group of [people].” He notes the NCLGA mem-

bership has “good representation from throughout the province.” Delegates from all of those communities were at the annual conference, Campsall says, adding 100 Mile is the southernmost

association member. “We’re basically a lobby group for the north, and we’re going to take the issues and [any that] come up in midstream and run with them.”

Taseko letter to Kent offends First Nations The Tsilhqot’in National Government has slammed Taseko Mines Ltd. president Russell Hallbauer for what it calls a “deeply offensive” letter he sent to Ottawa last November. After the Prosperity Mine project was found to be environmentally unacceptable by the federal government upon review panel recommendations last year, Taseko was granted a second environmental review for its revised plan. In a letter addressed to federal Environment Minister Peter Kent, Hallbauer asks for restrictions to be placed on the new panel regarding Aboriginal involvement, ceremony, spirituality and membership. These include requesting Kent decline any Aboriginals who ask to be on the new panel, or having group representatives on it. Hallbauer also asks Kent to disallow any prayer ceremonies, skits or films that aren’t subject to

panel questions or scientific proof of validity, and he pointed to examples of those from the last review. “... We are concerned that some of the steps that the panel took or allowed others to take had the effect of giving priority status to the interests and perspectives [of] Aboriginal people who were appearing before the panel. “In our view, these actions go well beyond conducting a culturally inclusive process, and stray into areas where a reasonable perception of bias begins to exist.” A Tsilhqot’in National Government (TNG) release states the content of the letter raises fears that Taseko’s lobbying could “weaken” the federal review to mimic British Columbia’s “rubber stamp” process that approved the project’s first review. “First Nations are alarmed the draft terms of reference for the new panel, which are expected to be finalized any day,

would drastically reduce or even remove the new panel’s mandate to consider impacts on Aboriginal rights.” Battison defends letter Brian Battison, Taseko vice-president of corporate affairs, says the letter was intended to prevent or remove elements of bias from the panel and review process. The federal environmental assessment (EA) process is prescribed by law, he explains, as a science-based examination of the biophysical effects changes have on the environment that is “very specific.” “Spirituality is not part of the legal requirement. Spirituality is many things to many people and is not something that can be measured in science, which is what an EA is supposed to do.” Battison adds those aspects can and should be examined by government separately, such as when Kent takes the panel report before cabinet, but

not in the review panel where it can apply bias to a recommending body. “We want the process to be fair and balanced; we want the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act to be adhered to. That seems reasonable; I think people would agree with that.” In his letter, Hallbauer requests panel selections be made on the same basis as for other projects, “whether they be Aboriginal or not.” MLA echoes concerns Hallbauer’s letter was obtained by Independent Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson through a Freedom of Information request, and then publicized. Simpson says the only route to forming productive relationships between companies and First Nations is by resolving rights and title claims, or else the resulting uncertainty “poisons” both these relationships and the project approval process.

“I’ve warned Taseko on a number of occasions that they need to rethink their relationship with the TNG. I’ve even asked that they appoint new people to the project who will take a totally different approach to the TNG, one that is more respectful and more productive.” The TNG release states the profound spiritual importance of this area to its people was a significant factor in the first federal panel’s rejection of the original proposal, partly due to “permanent, high magnitude impacts” on Tsilhqot’in culture and cultural heritage. TNG tribal Chief Joe Alphonse says the lack of reassurance from Ottawa that the EA rules won’t change leaves potential worries that “the fix is in.” “... We are not surprised that Mr. Hallbauer would write such an offensive letter. We have warned over and over again that this company does not understand or respect First Nations or our issues.”

Teachers rejoice at consultation rules Free Press

The regulations outlining the province’s Bill 22 legislation has teachers in the School District 27 celebrating in victory.

Joan Erb Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Association president Joan Erb says the regulation’s elements for mandating teacher consultations are “amazing.” “This is all very, very good. This is huge to us, absolutely. “The fact we’re going to be consulted is a far cry from what Bill 22 originally had [spelled out] in it.” The voice of teachers in dispute of that legislation has clearly been successful, Erb adds. “It’s obvious from

I think it’s a real wise move on the province’s part and I think it’s an indication there were some real loopholes in Bill 22 that were just bad for kids and for teachers.”

these amendments that what teachers throughout the province have been saying to government about Bill 22 ... have been heard and been recognized.” The regulation also sets out that consultation is required prior to laying out district plans for the Learning Improvement Fund, she explains. Principals or vice-principals must consult with teaching staff, Erb notes, as well as provide them with reasonable opportunities for response. “They’re sticking to their guns about the K-3 classes. But, the 30-student limit on Grades 4-12 classes may only be exceeded if the principal and superintendent agree, after consulting with the affected teacher.”

Joan Erb Erb says she’s also pleased that superintendents are additionally required to make reasonable efforts to reach agreements with local teacher union presidents. “I’m very happy about every one of these amendments.” She adds the regulations recognize the Ministry of Education has realized it had “maybe been a little hasty” in the language of its original legislation.

“I think it’s a real wise move on the province’s part and I think it’s an indication there were some real loopholes in Bill 22 that were just bad for kids and for teachers.” Erb notes other recent good news for teachers in her local was hearing the B.C. School Trustees Association recently voted to eliminate the requirement for standard Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) testing, and it

Where there’s smoke, there’s a grow-op On April 30, emergency services were called to a residential house fire, which was already being battled by neighbours and passers-by when they arrived, in the 4500 block of CanimHendrix Lake Road in Forest Grove. Conservation officer Colin Kravontka was the first responder on scene. He cleared the residence and determined that there was no one inside. “When I arrived, there were some people operating the [garden] hoses

outside, and I asked somebody if anybody was in there. They didn’t know where they were, but the owner’s vehicle was there, so that’s why I went into the basement.” The porch was blazing, he explains, so the front door was blocked and being sprayed with water by the other helpers. “I tried to go [upstairs] from the basement, but it was too smoky, so I went around the side. We finally got the door open, and I had to go

in a couple of times to check it all.” The smoke was so thick, Kravontka says he had to run in and out of the house several times at various entries holding his breath in order to check the house to confirm the house was empty. “I could only just cover so much because I had to come out and get some more air, and then I went back in and did the rest of the top floor. Then I finally went downstairs again and just shut the power off

WRANGLERS… from page A1 “As I told the board, putting us on the agenda was taken as acceptance of the late application, and taking us off was unfair, but I wasn’t prepared to go any further because I think it could have cause some irreparable damage for 100 Mile in the future.” Bachynski says he thinks he got his point across and the governors who were at the meeting saw he “doesn’t have horns and a tail.” He adds the next step for the club is to reconfirm with the league that, should the Wranglers find an acceptable team to buy, the 100 Mile club would be accepted into the league. “It’s leaving me a little bit gray as to whether they want to invite us into the league. I would like some confirmation on that.” Depending on what happens with that question, the club president says one of two things will happen.

“We’ll carry on and continue to search for a team, and if we don’t get a positive response from the governors that they would like us to be part of the KIJHL, I guess there’s always another league that could open up.” Bachynski says he needs a few days to calm down and to discuss the options and future direction with the directors. The club has an annual general meeting within the next 30 days or so, he adds. One thing about going to the governors meeting, he explains, is they now know 100 Mile has the capacity to own and operate a team and the Wranglers are open for business if a team does want to relocate here. “I wouldn’t want to go through this process again without knowing full well that we have the full support of the league and its governors that if we fairly negotiate the transfer of a franchise that it will be accepted.”

[at the circuit breaker box], and by that time the fire department had arrived.” While fire crews were tending the fire, 100 Mile RCMP conducted traffic control. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. However, there was smoke and water damage to the residence. During the fire investigation, a marijuana grow-op was discovered in the adjoining shop. The occupants of the residence were arrested for production of pot. A search warrant was obtained and executed later in the day.

Some 219 marijuana plants in various stages of production, 2.5 kilograms of bud, and marijuana-production equipment were seized from the shop. The value of drugs seized is estimated to be around $140,000. Charges of production of marijuana and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking are being recommended to federal Crown against a 36-year-old female resident and a 32-year-old male resident of Forest Grove. They were released on a promise to appear for a court date in August.

Conference brings benefits to 100 Mile The North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA) convention had a surprisingly strong impact on the retail businesses in 100 Mile House on May 2-4, says Mayor Mitch Campsall. “It was better than expected. I’ve been talking to merchants, and definitely they’ve noticed it.” In discussions with delegates, he notes they were pleased to be asked by store merchants if they were visiting town for the convention. “The delegates said it was really important to them, the fact of being recognized. I told them this community is behind us 100 per cent. It’s just absolutely great.” The hotels were full and many resorts and bedand-breakfasts had bookings, Campsall adds, including one B&B in Forest Grove that had it’s first-ever clients. Cariboo Regional District chair Al Richmond says the board and staff will look “very closely” at economic impacts, but notes the convention also brought other benefits beyond


economics. “We all have similar issues and we all are smaller-town folks, so the issues we share are common.” There was significant delegate interest in the geothermal heat at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre, he adds. “We were able to showcase that, and the two groups that I know did take a tour were very impressed.” Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says the merchants she spoke with were happy with having new people checking

out their businesses. “What I heard from everybody, retailers and all the delegates, was they were so impressed with how it was run [and] organized.” The trade show was a hit with many folks, she adds, from the booth vendors to the delegates visiting them. District of 100 Mile conference organizer Donna Bellingham says it went far more smoothly than she expected. “It was just phenomenal. I was so pleased with it.”

She reminds local merchants to fill out the recently-circulated convention economic impact survey by May 31, for a chance to win a prize basket. “We want to encourage local businesses to complete the survey, whether they saw delegates in their store or not. That would be very much appreciated because it’s the only way we’re going to get a true measure.” Richmond says an example of other convention spinoffs was some potential

Published every Wednesday at 100 Mile House by

Box 459, 100 Mile House, B.C., V0K 2E0

t was an interesting week for a couple of local groups that had been working on projects to make the 100 Mile House and area a better place to live. One group came out a definite winner, while the other didn’t fare as well, but it wasn’t for the lack of effort. First, the North Central Local government Association (NCLGA) convention in 100 Mile House on May 2-4 was a rousing success, as more than 300 delegates and their partners flooded into our community. Two key organizers must be acknowledge for their year-long planning effort – Donna Bellingham for the District of 100 Mile House and Shelly Burich for the Cariboo Regional District. Obviously, they had help along the way. The real show of appreciation came from the delegates who commented on how well the convention was organized and how nice it was to be acknowledged by local businesses and residents. Some businesses reported brisk economic returns while the convention was in town and the accommodation and service businesses also fared well. The key was all of those people who came to 100 Mile and toured the area will go back home and talk about their experiences, the sights and friendliness of our town and the communities around it. Hopefully, that will result in return visits with friends and family. On the other side of the coin, the 100 Mile House Wranglers Junior B Hockey Club was unable to secure a transfer of a top-notch team from Revelstoke. The Wranglers club, led by its president Tom Bachynski, had worked tirelessly to promote the prospect of bringing Junior B hockey to 100 Mile. Club members did everything they could to show the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League it had the fan base and volunteer interest to run a hockey operation that would not only benefit 100 Mile House but also the league. Once that was done, they beat the bushes to find a team that might be interested in transferring its franchise here. The dream to have KIJHL hockey in 100 Mile went up in smoke when some interesting last-minute moves prior to the May 6 board of governors meeting saw the reins handed over to new management and the team staying in Revelstoke. We bang our sticks on the ice in appreciation for the local club’s effort, and urge them to continue to battle to bring junior hockey to our community.

Canadian Media Circulation Audit

Spousal violence can be stopped Every six days a woman in Canada is killed by someone that was supposed to love her. By the age of 16 half of all women have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence. It is estimated the cost of violence against women in Canada is $4.2 billion each year. Violence against women exists in all cultures, ages, religions, sexual orientations, educational backgrounds and income levels in Canada. These are statistics that need to change. Intimate relationships are one of the most frequent places a woman will experience violence. Using violence to control a person is a deliberate, thoughtful act. It is not a case of someone losing control, or “snapping.” Violence is used to humiliate and intimidate. There are many excuses that an abuser will use, including alcohol and drugs. In all of these situations, however, the violence is only directed at the woman, but he is able to manage his emotions around everyone else. An abuser will choose times and places when being violent towards a woman will have the least consequence for him. Women stay in violent relationships for a variety of reasons. Often, the abuser has threatened to


GUEST SHOT kill her, her children or family pets. They also stay for financial reasons, or beliefs about keeping a family together. Women sometimes think they can manage the abusers behaviour if she is closer; the old saying about keeping your enemies closer comes to mind. A lot of women stay because they just don’t know how to begin to leave, or they have been convinced they can’t do it without the abuser. Spousal abuse is often a gradual process. The number and seriousness of assaults increase over time. Abusers will often express sadness and regret for their actions and promise to change. It can take years for women to admit the violence will never stop and that she needs to leave the relationship. Then it takes an average of seven attempts to leave a relationship, before she leaves for good. Abuse has long-term affects that damage her self-esteem, making it more difficult to believe she deserves better treatment. Sometimes the abuse is so damaging a woman may have difficulty managing on

her own. Many adults think “the kids don’t know,” but this is not true. Children see or hear up to 80 per cent of the violence. For a child who witnesses spousal violence, it is as harmful as experiencing it directly. Long-term exposure to the violence can affect the child’s brain development and ability to learn, including a number of emotional issues, such as anxiety, aggression, bullying, phobias and insomnia. Children who witness violence in the home have twice the rate of psychiatric disorders as children from non-violent homes. Healthy relationships lead to healthy families; healthy families lead to healthy communities; and healthy communities are everyone’s responsibility. Attitudes need to be changed, and they can be with education, awareness and a strong response to the abuse of women. Thanks to strong advocacy campaigns, drinking and driving is no longer socially acceptable. We can do the same for violence against women in our community. If you know a woman who is being abused, don’t judge but help her get connected safely. Karen Beresford is the Stop the Violence Counsellor at the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre.

Tanker debate sinks to new low ENTERTAINMENT

Letters to the editor

Free Press reader claims Prosperity story biased To the editor: Expecting a piece that would at least acknowledge the wide range of stakeholders and concerns associated with the proposed Prosperity Mine, I instead found the Free Press April 25 cover story, headlined Prosperity meeting packed Valley Room, to read more like a Taseko Mines press junket than an example of competent journalism. The article amounts to little more than pro-mine propaganda: 10 paragraphs solely devoted to re-enforcing the rhetoric of a mine representative, including suggestions as absurd as that of Taseko Mines caring about the interests of British Columbians over those of its own shareholders. This was followed by reactions mostly from individuals who, as owners of The Hills Health Ranch or Cedar Crest apartments, presumably hope to make direct financial gains should the mine proceed. After reading the article again several times, I couldn’t find a single sentence that wasn’t completely aligned with the interests of the Prosperity mine. The inarguable bottom line is Prosperity’s overarching purpose is to make its shareholders lots of money through the exploitation of B.C.’s natural resources. Local residents seldom factor highly in this sort of capitalism.

The format of the meeting, one that attempted to keep community members, such as Gordon Hoglund, from expressing their concerns publicly, clearly demonstrates that Taseko Mines was not trying to engage in an earnest discourse with meeting attendants, but rather to manipulate them to suit its own goals. Undoubtedly, other 100 Mile residents, including the ones who prevented Mr. Hoglund from meaningfully participating in the community “meeting,” also hope to cash in through some abstract promise of trickle-down profit sharing. Though they selfishly ignore the aboriginal, environmental, and long-term socioeconomic implications of the Prosperity proposal, it is their right to so. However, it is completely unacceptable for the 100 Mile House Free Press to publish articles that stoop to a similar level of bias. Canadian, non-editorial journalism is based on fundamental guidelines of fairness and impartiality. This article is an example of a blatant violation of these ethical standards in the name of the shortsightedness and greed that is not the solution to the Interior’s economic problems, but rather the root cause of them. Andrew Packham 100 Mile House

Funds have to come from somewhere To the editor: It’s about time we put the NIMBYs (Not in My Back Yard folks) on the shelf. Those same complainants about the Prosperity Mine and Enbridge Pipeline proposals are the very same who expect high levels of health care and other government services, without real-

izing that the revenue has to have a source. Or should we re-phrase that as “resource.” If you want the social services from the governments of the best country in the world to live in, you have to give something up. You can’t have it all. Walter Bramsleven 100 Mile House

VICTORIA – The British Columbia NDP has ramped up its opposition to the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline. First, the party formalized objections already expressed by NDP MLAs who have spoken at hearings held by the federal review panel along the B.C. coast. Leader Adrian Dix sent an 11-page letter to the panel, and then launched an attack on the B.C. Liberal government in the legislature that emphasized the letter’s top objection. Why doesn’t Premier Christy Clark stand up to Ottawa and protest the abandonment of the long-standing “moratorium and exclusion zone” on oil tankers off B.C.’s north coast, Dix and NDP energy critic Rob Fleming demanded. Clark’s answer was the same one given for many years by federal and provincial governments. The 1972 federal “moratorium” was directed at offshore oil drilling, not tankers bound for B.C. A separate Canada-United States agreement in 1998 calls for U.S. tankers to avoid B.C.’s Inside Passage as they transport Alaska crude oil to refineries in Washington State and further south. I asked Fleming for documentation that shows tankers are banned from B.C.’s north coast. He said it is “fragmented,” which means he doesn’t have any. Nor does the NDP’s heavily footnoted letter to the federal panel offer any source for this assertion. This argument flared up in 2006 after Methanex Corp. shut down its Kitimat methanol plant. Instead of shipping methanol out, a practice that was never questioned, it started bringing tankers into the


BC VIEWS Kitimat port loaded with a liquid natural gas byproduct called condensate. From there it is sent by rail to Alberta to dilute oil sands crude. This process led to Enbridge’s proposed double pipeline that would send condensate east and diluted crude west. The Dogwood Initiative, one of the multiple U.S.-funded groups that now dominate B.C.’s environmental lobby, rose to protest these early condensate shipments, saying they violate a moratorium on tankers. Wrong, said Don Rodden, superintendent of environmental response for the Canadian Coast Guard Pacific Region. The 1972 moratorium “wouldn’t apply to vessels coming into Canadian ports like Kitimat,” Rodden told the Globe and Mail at the time. The Coast Guard would be the agency legally required to enforce such a tanker ban, if one existed. As I’ve mentioned before, there are legitimate arguments against the Northern Gateway proposal.

This hippy-fantasy tanker moratorium isn’t one of them. Then there is the hypocrisy and pro-U.S. bias that is so clearly evident in the manipulated B.C. debate. The Northern Gateway pipeline would generate as many as 350 tanker trips each year to and from Kitimat. More than twice that many tankers already sail each year through the Strait of Juan de Fuca, past the Gulf and San Juan Islands. Many are heading to refinery complexes at March Point and Cherry Point in Washington. These supertankers can be seen sailing past Victoria most days. Strangely, this U.S. crude traffic excites no protests. Some of the smaller tankers come in to fill up from the Trans-Mountain pipeline in Burnaby, whose operator is preparing a bid for expansion. This attracts protests organized by people paid to oppose Alberta “tar sands” oil. Where do urban protesters think we get the gasoline and diesel fuel sold at B.C. filling stations? Do they think it’s all made at the little Chevron refinery in Burnaby, the last remnant of refining capacity in southern B.C.? We could use a serious debate about how B.C. handles petroleum. Instead, we see factually inaccurate claims promoted by U.S. interests to attack Canadian crude only. Our opposition politicians and media mostly just go along for the ride. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Oil sands contamination proven To the editor: I am writing regarding Tom Fletcher ’s column, headlined Environmentalism for dummies, on page A9 of the April 18 edition of the Free Press. He writes: “Diseased fish were displayed, but natural contamination of the Athabasca River was glossed over.” Fletcher is pushing an argument that was proven wrong in 2010. Several years ago, people downstream from the oil-sands plants complained of diseased fish. They also complained of increased cancer rates. People were dying from rare forms of cancer. They blamed both

items on pollutants that were put into in the Athabasca River by the oil-sands plants. The oil companies claimed the pollutants in the river were naturally occurring. The governments of Canada and Alberta supported the companies. In 2010, a study by David Schindler and others proved the pollution is, indeed, caused by the oil-sands industry. At first, both governments denied it. However, the study was wellfunded, well done and produced results that could stand up in court. Both governments conceded that Schindler was correct. Why was it necessary for private

groups to fund that study? Are our governments not responsible for protecting us from pollutants that cause cancer? Are they not required to protect places, such as the Peace Athabasca Delta, and other natural wonders downstream from the oil-sands? Why were they so quick to side with the companies, when no such study had been done? What have they done to alleviate the situation?

C apsule C omments The month of May is usually when allergies to pollen begin to be noticed. The beauties of Spring often bring misery to those with hay fever and similar allergies. It doesn’t have to be this way. It’s difficult to live life by avoiding the pollens that cause the allergies. However, there are many effective medications that can control your symptoms. Our pharmacists would be happy to advise you. Alcohol does interact with many drugs but for antibiotics the interactions are few. Pharmacists will certainly inform you, when it is important, with an auxiliary label on the prescription bottle and will reinforce it verbally at the counter. These labels give important information about your prescription and should be heeded. It’s a good thing to include green leafy vegetables in our daily diet. One of these veggies that doesn’t get the attention it deserves is kale. It contains healthy amounts of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, potassium and vitamins A, C, E, and K. If kale isn’t part of your diet, give it a try. There are some very good medications available to reduce stomach acid and heartburn. If you find yourself without your medication and have bad heartburn, you may find relief from drinking a glass of water, The water will reduce the stomach acidity and bring temporary relief until you can take your medication.

The speeds ranged from 52 to 80 km/h over the posted speed limit. Ditching and driving On May 6, 100 Mile Traffic Services responded to a report of a possible impaired driver who had driven into the ditch in the 4500 block of Canim-

The vehicle was located a short distance away still being operated in a driveway. The male driver displayed symptoms of impairment by liquor consumption. He was detained and returned to the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment where two breath samples were obtained of 330 and 340 mg%. Charges of impaired driving and driving over the legal limit are being recommended to Crown against a 42-year-old 100 Mile House area resident.

More letters to the editor HST elimination time frame set To the editor: I am writing in response to Eric Freeston’s letter, headlined MLA asked to lead quick HST removal, on page A9 of the April 25 Free Press. I point to commentary from Bruce Ralston in Straight. com. He is quoted “NDP finance critic, Bruce Ralston, says that untangling the [Harmonized Sales Tax] HST isn’t as easy as some would think. I mean, some people have said you could just snap your fingers and get rid of it. “I think that is administratively not realistic. The comprehensive integrated tax co-ordination agreement states the termination of the agreement establishing the HST in B.C., cannot be earlier than

the date that is the fifth anniversary of the revenue measure’s implementation. “While one government may notify the other of its intent to withdraw earlier than five years from the tax’s implementation, the deal specifies that this will be effective no sooner than the end of the 18th month period that immediately follows the last day of

the calendar quarter in which the written notice of termination is received or any other time period that may be mutually agreed upon between the parties. “This means it could take up to 21 months to terminate the HST after the federal government is given notice.” Joe Sawchuk Duncan

Local history of family and firm Heather Nelson Free Press

Historically, the book One Day at a Time - the Story of Ainsworth Lumber, is a combination of family history intertwined with the business the family started and still operates today. Usually when a writer is commissioned to write about corporate history, the resulting books are normally for the employees, retirees, and their families, says author Paul Luft of 108 Mile Ranch. “This is a little different since the growth of Ainsworth coincides with the growth of 100 Mile House. Ainsworth

Paul Luft was a dominant company in the community.” Luft was commissioned by Ainsworth founder David Ainsworth a number of years ago, the author says. He ads Ainsworth wanted the story to be about the family history, as well as the busi-

of the family with the history of the business.” Luft adds he interviewed so many people who had so many different stories he added them as little anecdotal inserts scattered throughout the book. One Day at a Time — the Story of Ainsworth Lumber documents the history of the Ainsworth family, the South Cariboo forest industry and the impact Ainsworth Lumber had on building 100 Mile House economy. Ainsworth was a visionary, Luft says, providing the example of Ainsworth pioneering the use of lodgepole pine for

Climate change... Twenty-three 100 Mile House and area concerned citizens joined others around the world to participate in “Connect the Dots – Climate Impacts day.” The photo illustrates one impact (pine beetle infestation) that climate change has had on B.C. It shows four politicians enjoying some fine dining, totally oblivious to the fallen, decaying pine trees around them and the frustrated people who are crying out for change.

It might look the same but it isn’t Heather Nelson Free Press

A comment posted on the 100 Mile House Free Press’s website, prompted a phone call to a 100 Mile House area businessperson. Nadaya McNeil, McNeil & Son Logging Co. receptionist bookkeeper, wanted to warn other small businesses in the area. “I received overdue invoices from,” McNeil says, adding at first thought it was the “real” thing. “This is not Yellow pages; it is a complete scam.” Receiving an invoice for the amount of $1,573, McNeil says she decided to look into it, especially since it said second notice. Calling the contact number, she learned the invoice was for a contract for a “national business directory,” which according to the person she called, lists the business for the tune of $129 per month for two years. “We never entered into any kind of agreement with this company. I called them and told them I wouldn’t be paying the invoice.”

She adds the company spokesperson was persistent that McNeil pay, she told them she didn’t want to hear from them again. The Better Business Bureau website - article/yellow-pagesinvoice-scams - has

more information on the scam, which seems to have gone across the country. If people feel they have been the victim or potential victim of the Yellow page scam, it is suggested they report the fraud to Competition Bureau or the

Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (formerly Phonebusters); contact their local RCMP detachment; and report the fraud to the Better Business Bureau. It would be very easy to get hooked in by this,” says McNeil.

Excellence in Child Care Celebrations slated for May 17 The 100 Mile House Child Care Resource & Referral (CCRR) in partnership with Success by 6 is holding its Second Annual Excellence in Childcare Awards Celebrations at the Creekside Seniors Activity Centre, 501 Cedar Ave., on May 17 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. “We’ve had many, many nominations,” says CCRR consultant Erica Henderson.

Erica Henderson “The reason for these awards is to, recognize, respect and

honour the work child-care providers do.” There are different categories of awards, with one per person: outstanding family child care provider; outstanding group child care; outstanding pre-school provider; new faces; dedication to child care; outstanding support staff; lighting the way; child-care activist award;

and outstanding Aboriginal child-care provider. May has just been proclaimed Child Care Month by the British Columbia government to celebrate the work of caring and committed childcare operators and early childhood educators throughout the province. Child Care P r o v i d e r Appreciation Day is

May 17, which coincides nicely with the Awards Celebrations, says Henderson. This year, the awards ceremony will also honour family friendly local businesses, Henderson says, adding this is a partnership with Success by 6 and the United Way. The partnership engages business leaders to raise awareness about

the economic importance of investing in a child’s early years. In order for the population to contribute and benefit economic prosperity, explains Henderson, families have to be supported from the start. “The children are our future.” There are 10 business honoured during the celebrations, including Save-On-Foods,

Sunrise Ford, Regency Chrysler, Central GM, Cheeky Lil’ Monkeys & the Ladies of Aloha, Donex Pharmacy & Department Store, Canlan Ice Sports, 100 Mile House FireRescue, 100 Miler Gear Garage and Safeway. The awards celebration is free to attend and will have light refreshments available. For more details, call Henderson at 250395-5155.

could be the only area that needs additional water. Cariboo summers can be dry, so giving the feeling of a lush oasis around the house with a couple of timed water zones will greatly cut back on water use compared to trying to intensely landscape an entire property. It will eliminate the need to be hauling hoses and sprinklers around all summer as well. Drippers and soaker hoses can be used instead of sprinklers, which will cut back on water waste and allow for deeper less frequent watering. Planting deer resistant plants or making a deerproof area eliminates the need to keep repurchasing plants. Try to have the right plant material


Good planning and eco-friendly gardening go hand in hand. Paving stones, lumber and nursery plant material have a large environmental footprint to produce; so why not use them carefully and with good planning? Cariboo properties (acreages, 108 lots) are huge compared to urban lots (which are usually under 60’X120’). There is endless maintenance required including watering, fertilizing, and potential herbicide use. A well-planned garden will be easier to maintain, more affordable and more rewarding. A house is built in stages using a plan to work from. It’s logical to build a garden using the same process. Getting it on paper Àrst will reveal what works and doesn’t work overall. It allows you to budget the job accurately and see the stages of construction clearly; meaning you can build the garden as you can afford to but without losing sight of the overall plan and goals. A garden designer will be able to do this for you. The garden can be designed in zones. If the site merits it, a welldesigned intense zone close to the house is an ideal use of resources. Think garden rooms next to the house accessed through patio doors & entry. Plant and maintain these areas to get the most visual bang for the buck and enjoyment. This zone closest to the house

Forest Grove residents lose home to fire Carole Rooney Free Press

A raging structure fire destroyed a home in Forest Grove at the corner of Houseman and Cheetah roads on May 6. The two occupants were in Williams Lake and returned to find they had no house left, says Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department (FGVFD) chief Bob Felker. The call came in around 7 p.m. and he explains 15

members responded with three engines and two tenders. Mutual aid from 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue also provided a dozen firefighters, an engine and a tender. Upon their arrival the FGVFD found the structure fully engulfed in flames that were already coming through the roof, Felker says, adding it was lucky no one was in the home at the time. Area resident Laura

Sperling says she was going to another neighbour’s home for dinner with her son when she noticed there was heavy smoke funnelling upwards nearby. “It had just really started to take off when we got there. By the time I turned around with my truck... It was just whoosh; it went so fast and it was so loud, super loud.” The home had cedar siding and Sperling adds it was gone within 20

minutes after she first saw it, which she believes was shortly after it had started. “The fire department was really quick, too. I was first on the scene after the fire trucks.” She notes there was no wind or breeze, but there was dry grass and dead pines all around and adjacent homes, so it was fortunate for neighbours that the fire department was able to control the flames.

The burning house was quickly reduced to rubble, however, while Sperling watched firefighters fight the flames. “It was a beautiful home. I know the people who lived there; it was stunning.” With nothing significant left to the structure but a few charred timbers, Felker says his firefighters had the blaze out and departed the scene about 11 p.m. to clean up the equipment at the hall.

The chief and his crew had barely made it home when they were called out again at 1 a.m. after the cinders flared up again, and dealt with the hot spots until about 3 a.m. Felker has no idea what started the fire and he notes it’s the second fire with an undetermined cause in less than a week, which is “unusual.” He adds battling the blaze was a “lot of hard work” for the firefighters.

A Glorious Time of Reawakening

Ah, springtime, what a glorious time of reawakening. This is creation at its Ànest. A phenomenon we can count on without fail, buds bursting forth, spring Áowers to brightening our bare yards and again we garden lovers become one with the earth. A love of gardening and inspiration from seeing tiny seeds Áourish into miraculous plants has led Siegfried and I to pursue a garden based business. Every year we grow fabulous tomatoes in our small greenhouse and wish to share a few tried and true tips with fellow gardeners. Tomatoes are fairly easy to grow, the are heavy feeders so rich composted soil in the beds is a great beginning. Whether you have a greenhouse or a great south facing wall, dig the holes depending on the size of the plants, thoroughly mix in bone and blood meal if necessary, and water thoroughly. For smaller plants we leave just the top leaves showing, bury the rest. Any leaves on the stems should be left on, they will sprout extra roots, and extra roots provide extra nutrients to the plant, which in turn provides more fruit. For taller plants bury as deep as possible, leaving any blossoms above ground. As

the plant grows we allow 1-2, sometimes even three strong side shoots to develop. In staking plants these also will need support, all other side shoots should be continuously pinched out. When the blossoms fully develop into fruit it is time to trim off leaves below the fruit. This allows strength towards fruit development, allows the sun to ripen the fruit and keeps the plants manageable. Continue this practice all the way up the stem. At the end of the season all we have are stems, clusters of tomatoes with a tuft of green leaves at the top. Periodically throughout the growing season we sprinkle the

surface soil with a thin layer or mushroom manure or compost, this also helps feed surface roots which develop. We have a small fan running in the greenhouse, this ensures air Áow and although tomatoes like it warm, too hot is unfavorable. Make sure that you have enough ventilation. Pollination will naturally occur with good air Áow. Consult your gardening books or ask the experts if problems occur. Try growing your own tomatoes this year and reap the fruit of your labor.

Cariboo Idol auditions slated to begin By Monika Paterson Cariboo Idols provides a showcase for Cariboo-Chilcotin vocally talented songwriting performing artists. The top 10 of the auditioning artists will be entertaining audiences at many events during the summer months, and they will have their music heard on after recording their songs at New Age Studios. In its now seventh season, this year’s auditions are slated to begin on May 14-15 from 6 to 9 p.m. Callbacks will happen on May 16-17, starting at 6 p.m. Everything takes place at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. In addition to singers only, the Idols organizer Rob Fry is encouraging more songwriter performers to audition. There will be a

Auditioners may also bring along an accompanist if they so wish. All ages are welcome to audition, but anyone under the age of 18 will have

to have a parent or guardian be present and sign their registration form at the check in desk in front of a member of the South Cariboo Community Concerts or New Age Entertainment, upon arrival for their first audition. Fry says there are no exceptions. Rules and registration forms can be found on the website by clicking on the Cariboo Idol link button. All entrants also need to bring along a $10 cash registration fee. This year’s judges will once again be Denny Fahrenholtz, Larry Rode, Bev Fry, Cindy Fetzner and Terry Larum. Fry says the whole competition is about having fun while working together as a group to help one another to ensure great solid perfor-

mances while on stage, in studio, and in music videos. The Cariboo Idols will be performing at a number of events in the South Cariboo this summer, starting with their first show at the Louisiana Hayride on May 19. Then they will open the Family Barn Dance on May 20, and both performances at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. They will continue on with their performances at the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Centennial Park on June 9. More of their schedules will be made available closer to their performance dates, and can also be found on the website. All 10 finalists will be winners with the experiences they will have, regardless of where they place in the competition, by the end of the season in September. If you are a musician, singer, songwriter, come to the South Cariboo Rec. Centre and show off your talents and you could be on your way to having your music heard on Caribooradio. com, and at many events this summer. The top 10 contestants will also get into a recording studio to record your songs and music videos, which will be uploaded to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.

The 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue is headed by Tammy McDermid. “We decided to get involved in the Big Bike fundraiser every two years,” says McDermid. “The department volunteers in the Big Boot drive, too. We want to be involved, but we also don’t want to have our members to burn out.” In 2010, she adds, their department raised more money for HSF than the Kamloops Fire Department team.

With 29 riders on the bike, the ride takes about 15-20 minutes, starting at the SaveOn-Foods parking lot, travelling down Birch Avenue and circling behind Safeway and then back to the lot. The TIB Jones & Friends team led by April Roberts, has 22 members signed up, with three maybes. In 2011, the TIB Jones team received the Spirit Award from HSF for their efforts. It’s a lot of fun, and for a good cause,

cooled by windy conditions, May 6. Club vice-captain Gloria Corno says the Ice Breaker at the 108 Resort Golf Course, which was open to members and non-members, set an attendance record, with 39 ladies in attendance. Club member Annie McKave introduced a lotto draw format, which resulted in a fun team tourney, to the participants prior to the 10 a.m. tee-off on May 6. When the last foursome completed the nine-hole tournament, there was a three-way tie for first place. The winning teams included Kim Giesbrecht, Shirley Garrow, Sharon Claassen and Sharlene Anderson; Lorraine McCaffrey, Lyn Smeds, and Lynda Lewis; and Susan Skidmore,

Gloria Corno, Carol Lidstone and Clara Koehn. There were a number of individual prizes handed out at the end of the day. Pam Dutchak sank the longest putt on No. 7 hole. Pauline Weigelt was the closest to the line for players age 65 and older. Judy Scarrow was closest to the line for the competitors age 65 and younger. Kim Giesbrecht was the closest to the pin (KP) on No. 4 hole for players age 65 and younger. Eileen King took the KP on No. 4 hole for golfers age 65 and older. Pam Dutchak won the KP on No. 8 hole with her second shot for players age 65 and older. Giesbrecht grabbed the KP on No. 8 hole with second shot for players age 65 and younger to score

Soccer pitches named with Lions coming on board The 100 Mile & District Soccer Association is excited about having its fourth and final field sponsored at the soccer complex, says sponsorship and communications director Werner Heine. “It gives us funds to go towards the commitments we still have on the fields. We’re paying off the stuff people see at the fields right now.” The 100 Mile House Lions Club has gone forward with the sponsorship of the fourth field, which will now be called the Lions Field. Lion Ron Graves notes his club donated $5,000 towards the original field development, and is putting in $5,000 this year and committed to $5,000 for the following two years. “One of the main reasons behind naming it the Lions Field is the other clubs in the immediate

The fourth and final field at the 100 Mile House & District Soccer Association’s soccer park was named Lions Field following a donation from the 100 Mile House Lions Club. The presentation was made April 28 during a soccer camp at the complex. area have also contributed in the development of the fields. We felt that because the Lions clubs in the various communities have been involved in the development of the park, we

would just call it the Lions Field.” Over the years, we have sponsored youth sports, including $25,000 for the new arena, he says, adding that when the Stan Halcro Arena was built,

100 Mile Lions made a substantial donation to the project. “We have sponsored many youth teams in soccer, hockey and softball, so we felt [the soccer fields] was for the bet-

terment of youth in the area and because it is a sport that a great number of kids are involved in, we decided to go forward with it.” Now, all four pitches at the complex have been sponsored and named, including the Katchmar Field and Rotary Field, which were named for the 2010 season, and now the Sunrise Field and Lions Field, which were named for the 2012 season. Says Heine: “It’s nice to see another service club be involved in the field sponsorship program. It makes us feel good that people who do a lot for the community look at us as being a worthwhile cause for them to sponsor.” They have many things they sponsor and the fact they chose us is greatly appreciated, he adds. Heine notes the association will continue

fundraising until the fields are completely paid for and “that’s what we’ll be doing for the next couple of years.” The association just received approval to sell 50/50 tickets at the soccer complex, which, he says, will contribute to the finances. The annual quad raffle will get underway very soon, he adds. “I just made a deal on the quad and now I’m going to apply for the licence and we’ll be selling tickets within a week or two.” The quad tickets will be available at the soccer complex and in town, with the draw taking place at the South Cariboo Community Fall Fair. Noting they take the tickets to all the major events, Heine says it is their major fundraiser, as they cleared around $13,000 last year.

European Football School camp well received By Monika Paterson

Some 57 youngsters from around the region attended a high-level soccer camp at the 100 Mile House soccer fields, April 27-29. They learned many new skills from Saibo Talic, who is the highest-level licensed coach in Canada and owner of the European Football School (EFS) in North Vancouver. Talic brought along fellow licensed instructors Igor Matic and Igor ’s father, Rade Matic, who coached extensively in the former Yugoslavia. Soccer players converged on the fields to receive 1.5 hours of instruction on Friday and Sunday and a three-hour session on Saturday. Participants ranged in age from seven to 18, with some travelling from as far away as Quesnel, Williams Lake and Kamloops. Lisa LizziDavidson says the instructors were very animated and made things fun and challenging for the participants.

The coaches also taught them about fitness, proper techniques, co-ordination and balance. They started with the basics, assessed their skill levels and worked from there, she adds. Four students also received specialized time in goalie instruction. There are some players from the Cariboo who travel

on a weekly and biweekly basis to North Vancouver to attend Talic’s camps in the Lower Mainland. Lizzi-Davidson says the head coach was very encouraged to see the players’ enthusiasm. Noting he has worked at many different locations around the province, she adds Talic was very impressed with what 100 Mile had to offer in the way of fields for this sport. With players sharing their new skills with their teammates, Lizzi-Davidson says they hope to attract more players to these camps and have the one in 100 Mile become an annual

Little Britches Rodeo registration tonight Carole Rooney Free Press

Hang on to your hats; it’s time for the 46th annual Little Britches Rodeo. The sanctioned rodeo on May 19 will feature contestants up to 14 years old in a variety of competitions ranging from steer and cow riding to calf and dummy roping, and everything in between. Together with some always-fun events, such as goat tail tying and stake races, crowds and participants alike are sure to have a great time, says spokesperson Ron Szigety. “We’re hoping for a great turnout from the community and a nice warm sunny day.” A new competition called chute dogging will join the event lineup this year, where the youngsters attempt to wrestle down a steer by the horns. While it’s similar to bull dogging, these youths will be on foot, not on horseback, to try to grab it coming out of the chute and use the animal’s own momentum for its downfall. Spectators will be tickled pink by the greased pig contest (with a $50 prize) and

We’re hoping for a great turnout from the community and a nice warm sunny day.”

the all-time crowd favourite, mutton bustin’ for the wee ones. The barrels, poles and breakaway roping competitions will also take place as usual. The Little Britches Rodeo will get underway earlier, as a rodeo parade is not happening this year, so head on over to the 100 Mile & District Outriders Grounds behind the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. To grab a good seat, pony up for the gate opening at 8 a.m. as the rodeo starts at 9 a.m. Gate admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors and free for children aged six and under. The junior events will run all morning until the break around 11:30 a.m., and then the senior competitions will commence after lunch. Mosey over to the concession when you get peckish for a meal or snack, but be sure to be ready for the noon Grand Entry, featuring the Cariboo Cowgirls drill team and the flag-bearing children.

Full house expected for Mega Show Heather Nelson Free Press

The South Cariboo Rec. Centre will be filled to the rafters inside and out, for the Fifth Annual South Cariboo Mega Show on May 11-13. “We want to be able to give away a Mega Mother’s Day Basket,” says Canlan’s office/sales and community program co-ordinator Tara Grinyer. Because the show is on the Mother’s Day weekend, she explains they want to offer a free draw for children to enter, and one lucky child could win the basket for his/her mom. If there are any local businesses that would like to donate a gift or sponsor a gift, we would certainly

appreciate it, Grinyer says, adding the gifts can range from slippers to bubble bath or anything to make the day special for a mother. The show combines home improvement, home-based businesses and recreational vehicles in the parking lot. A great variety of vendors will be there with booths and displays for their various products and services for everything you need for your home renovations, home furnishings, yard, garden, recreation, outdoor living, recreational vehicles and a lot more. “We have a nice selection of local home-based businesses, ranging from coffee to herbal remedies, jew-

elry, woodworks and more. Other vendors include roofers, heating, vinyl decking and even docks.” As in past years, people are invited to enter their names at the Canlan booth for prizes, and some of the vendors will have their own draw boxes. The Mega Show will be open Friday from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturday 10-5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is by donation and Grinyer says all proceeds are going to Kidsport [a program which helps youth play sports even if they can’t afford the registration costs].

Skiers turning to bikes for fitness Ken Alexander Free Press

Skiing is over, and a number of women

are ready to get the Ladies Biking group up and pedalling. Last year, it tended to rain on bike

days, group member Lauren Bock says, adding she hopes there will be sunny weather this year.

2012 World Cup rowing team announced Rowing Canada and Doug Csima Aviron has (Oakville, Ont.). announced its team “We have gone for the 2012 Samthrough a rigorous sung World Rowing selection process and Cup in Lucerne, I’m very excited to Switzerland, May see what this team 25-27, and former can do on the world 108 Mile Ranch resistage in Lucerne later dent Gabe Bergen is this month,” says on the list. Peter Cookson, Bergen, out of Rowing Canada Aviron the University of high performance Victoria, will row director. with the Men’s All crews have Gabe Bergen Eight 8-plus crew. qualified for the 2012 The team includes Olympics, with the Brian Price (Belleville, Ont.), exception of the women’s pair, Will Crothers (Kingston, Ont.), which will compete at the final Jeremiah Brown (Cobourg, Ont.), qualifier in Lucerne from May Andrew Byrnes (Toronto, Ont.), 20-23. Malcolm Howard (Victoria), Rowing Canada Aviron has Conlin McCabe (Brockville, not yet nominated its Olympic Ont.), Rob Gibson (Kingston), athletes, and will do so in June.

“All fitness levels and abilities are welcome. We will bike the ski trails and 108 Lake, so no special skills are required.” There will be two ladies bike groups, she explains. On Mondays at 6 p.m., there will be a group for those who are more comfortable with single-track biking and are reasonably fit. On Thursdays at 5 p.m., there will be a group for ladies who prefer an easier ride on the wider ski trails. This is a great group

for those who have recently started biking. Both groups meet at the 108 Heritage Site parking lot and everyone is welcome. The group with the experienced riders starts tomorrow (May 10) at 5 p.m. Noting this is not a 100 Mile Nordic sanctioned group, but just a fun group to join other ladies who like to bike, Bock says riders will bike at their own risk. Anyone with questions can e-mail her at laurenbock@

The Cariboo Fire Centre (CFC) urges the public to use caution when conducting open burns and they also ensure any previously burned piles have been properly extinguished. There is currently an open fire prohibition in place, which still allows for smallscale pile burning of no more than two piles, one metre by one metre in size. Anyone planning to conduct burning should follow these safe burning tips: • Ensure fires are not lit or kept burning during windy conditions. • Have adequate tools, water and people on hand to contain a fire. • Ensure the fire is fully extinguished before leaving the area. One of the con-

tributors to wildfires in the Cariboo each spring is holdover fires, which are fires that smoulder underground and reignite when the weather gets warmer. At this time, the

CFC is asking the public to check any piles that were previously burned to ensure they are completely extinguished. To report a wildfire or unattended campfire, call *5555

on your cell phone, or call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free. For the latest information on fire activity, conditions and prohibitions, visit the Wildfire Management Branch website: www.

Question 1 - What is Governance?

ANSWER: Governance is the way in which the South Cariboo is managed by elected officials. Currently our elected officials consist of a Mayor and 4 Councillors of the District if 100 Mile House and the Directors of Area G, H, & L of the Cariboo Regional District. District officials meet and make decisions in the best interests of people confined to the Municipal boundary. Regional District Directors work as a body for the whole of the Cariboo Regional District as well with concentrated focus on their immediate area of responsibility. All these officials of the South Cariboo also meet as a joint committee to review items relevant to the collective group in the South Cariboo.

Question 2 - How would the new Governance model look ?

Question 3 - Why should we consider doing this now ?

ANSWER: This is an easy answer. Political bodies ANSWER: Amalgamation of the current two have their own sense of cooperation. Currently we body system would have a very similar look as are enjoying a CRD Board and Municipal board the current joint committee. All officials of the that work well together. This is not a simple District as well as CRD Directors will sit at the task and requires ALL officials to be ‘on board’. same table, make decisions relative to the South There is no time like the present because we have Cariboo on an ongoing basis. These officials will unprecedented respect and cooperation with have a considerably larger tax base to work with these officials and believe there is an appetite for and, as a group, will have considerably more to such a project. govern.

Sam Moody offers herbal healing tips Carole Rooney Free Press

Herbal medicines have been around as long as mankind has walked the Earth, but aren’t necessarily in regular use in every household with health issues. However, natural treatments are once again gaining in popularity, as more and more people move away from drugs and chemicals. Sam Moody has presented some useful information on herbal healing to people in the Cariboo-Chilcotin. This includes the South Cariboo, where he has spoken to Canim Lake Band members, youth and others interested in natural healing. Moody says he provides information sessions and community demonstrations with handouts on preparing various poultices, teas and ointments and their potential use as treatments for various ailments. “We use the medicine in our traditional way. My knowledge of medicines for the ones that I use comes from my grandfather and grandmother.” Moody further expanded his related skills last year when he and a number of others participated in a weeklong Managing Your Chronic

Submitted photo

Sam Moody of Williams Lake travelled to Bella Coola last year, along with several members of the Canim Lake Band, to collect healing herbs used by First Nations as traditional medicines for eons. Conditions program at University of Victoria (UVIC). All of the Canim Lake Band community members involved had health issues, such as diabetes or stomach, lungs, kidney or bladder problems, he explains. While the group originally participated to

develop knowledge in problem-solving and management of their conditions, their combined general knowledge was such that they decided to go beyond their personal health aspects. “We took it one step further, and put a proposal together and got some Health Canada

funding to do a program called Managing Your Chronic Conditions with Traditional Medicines.” Part of the contract for that funding was to share the knowledge with others, Moody notes. Then, the group went out and collected medicinal plants, berries and other natural products

around 100 Mile House and Bella Coola, he says. Moody explains bearberry (often falsely referred to as kinnikinnick), for instance, is very effective in treating kidney, urinary infections and prostate conditions. A diabetic himself, Moody says he finds a bearberry tea also helps him manage his blood sugar. “I’m finding all the medicines I have used are beneficial in other areas, and to me that’s a real plus.” The steam from boiled balsam bark is useful for lung conditions and congestion, such as asthma, Moody says, adding the tea also has other benefits. “I drink it just to keep my stomach healthy. It helps to rid it of the unwelcome bacteria that we sometimes get in our system. “The Mullein plant, we use for lung congestion. Surprisingly enough you burn the leaf like a smudge and breathe the smoke in, and it opens the capillaries in your lungs.” He adds the Mullein flower is useful for a sleep aid in a tea form, but the flavour “takes some getting used to” and needs a bit of honey to make it more palatable. It’s important to note

Sam Moody that herbal medicines should always be properly researched or checked with a herbalist before taking, he explains, for proper use, preparation and precautions. Moody adds his program group is connected with University of British Columbia, where they are working with Dr. Eduardo Jovel in the lab to test and analyze the medicines for toxicity levels. He also has a communications relationship with ethnobotanist Nancy Turner of UVIC, a wellknown herbalist “icon,” Moody says.

Irene had been resident at Fischer Place for several years. Irene’s son, Michael “Magoo” Barkley, was the one for whom the annual Magoo Memorial Tournament is named, after he was killed in a motorcycle accident in 1986. Irene was an excellent bridge player and friends fondly recall trips to her pretty waterfront home for a game and delectable goodies. She was also a carpet bowler

PSALM 23 Transition Society Dealing with addictions?



CHANGING A LIFE Psalm 23 Transition Society feels so blessed by the Cariboo community that they want to give back to it. This Canadian non-profit charitable organization is doing so by reaching out and helping one family on Saturday, May 19, 2012 with the gift of a vehicle. Psalm 23 knows all about making a difference in people’s lives as they run the Training Centre at 59 Mile for those struggling with different forms of addictions. E. Johnson 58149 The vehicle is currently being inspected for any issues so we can make the van roadworthy and safe so the recipient won’t have to worry about repairs. Every aspect of this used vehicle is being checked out and repairs will be made as needed. All detailing work inside-and-out has been graciously donated by Sunrise Ford. With a broken window, the rear glass replacement, parts and all labour have been generously provided by 100 Mile Glass. All of the labour on the vehicle is being donated by Albert Able (a student at Psalm 23 Training Centre). The 1994, 7-seat, Dodge Caravan SE van will be donated to a worthy single-mother or father with at least two children who may be struggling in the down economy and could truly benefit from this gift. Until May 15, 2012, Psalm 23 is encouraging the community to submit a brief essay explaining why their nominee deserves the car. Essays should be no more than 500 words. Community members may nominate themselves, their friends, neighbours, anyone they personally know who deserves and would be in need of a used vehicle in great condition. Each participant should include their full name, address, phone number and email address. The nominees also must have a valid driver’s license and be capable of acquiring automobile insurance. Community members who wish to make a nomination should send their letters of nominations to… with the subject being “Car Giveaway.” The community can also mail their nominations to Box 387 Clinton, BC V0K 1K0.

Psalm 23 will be accepting nominations until May 15, 2012. The winning nominee will be chosen by a panel consisted of community members from Sunrise Ford, 100 Mile Glass, Psalm 23’s Marvin & Shelley Declare and representatives from any other business that donates to this project on May 15th. The vehicle will be given away at Sunrise Ford on Saturday, May 19 at noon. If you would like to participate in Psalm 23’s Donate a Vehicle program please email or call Marvin Declare (604-870-5616). As a charity, Psalm 23 can offer a tax receipt for your donation. With our ‘Donate a Vehicle Program’ we are able to receive trucks, cars, farm vehicles, motorcycles, ATVs and boats. Please consider donating today into our Training Programs. For more information on Psalm 23 please contact us. (

Green Lake artist follows her heart in her art By Monika Paterson

Carol O’Grady-Miclash will have her work featured for the month of May at the Showcase Gallery in the South Cariboo Business Centre at 475 Birch Ave. O’Grady-Miclash grew up in Ontario moved to British Columbia in the mid-’60s. She purchased property in the Green Lake area in 1980 and started to spend holidays in the Cariboo before moving to the area permanently in the early ‘90. O’Grady-Miclash says she was interested in art as a young child. Not having access to many art tools, she began her journey with drawings in pencil, as she only had access to a pencil and a sharpener to create her first pieces of artwork.

The Green Lake resident begins her project there, and then moves to the photographs she has taken, where she adapts her compositions to her liking. She has won numerous awards for her pieces that she’s entered in Cariboo Artist Guild shows. Her newest pieces will be part of the annual group display of works at the Parkside Art Gallery at the end of July and first part of August. She asks the people in the area to continue to support our many talented and creative Cariboo artists. O’Grady-Miclash’s works can be viewed at the Showcase until the end of May.

Festival of the Arts showcased talent Heather Nelson Free Press

Mary Ann Robertson, 100 Mile Festival of the Arts president and festival committee co-chair, says putting the festival together is at least a 11-month process, but it’s worth all the effort. “The children did so very well. It is wonderful to see their growth. So many have such grace under pressure.” She adds there are lots of “veterans” performing during the festival, as well as a lot of newcomers who did a wonderful job. The 36th Annual Festival of the Arts

ran April 16-27 at the Martin Exeter Hall. The daily performances by students were adjudicated by professionals in different disciplines, including speech and dramatic arts, instrumental, piano and vocal. Adjudicators judged performances during the festival and selected award recipients for the final evening’s Awards and Showcase Performance. Some of the daily sessions were very well attended, but a few times the hall was quite sparse in audience, Robertson notes. “We will need to think of how to

[increase] the audience participation for next year.” Overall, it was a wonderful festival, Robertson says, adding the children did very well given that some of them have only experienced two recitals before the festival. The Showcase Performance on April 27 was very well attended, she says, adding the evening was a wonderful blend of the different performers. Masters of ceremonies for the evening

The Louisiana Hayride was a live radio show, broadcast over KWKH Radio in Shreveport, Louisiana and ran successfully from 1948-1960. It was instrumental in establishing the careers of such artists as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Marty Robbins, Jim Reeves, Roy Orbison and many more artists. Our rendition in story and song, takes you back to those days and that live radio show. Find out why Roy Orbison wore dark sunglasses and where and when the phrase “Elvis has left the building” was first spoken. Great stories, great songs. For more information on the show, google Gil Risling Hayride.

Folks love tennis at 108 Mile Ranch

REG BERRINGTON 250-791-9235

A new tennis season will be starting soon and the 108 Mile tennis club will be meeting to decide what days will be scheduled for mixed doubles, ladies night and possibly Sunday afternoons. New and former players are welcome to come out and play. All games are played at the 108 Resort Golf & Outdoor Adventures on Telqua Drive. Resort general manager Jeff Kendy says the fees will remain the same as there were last year. For more information on the fee structure, call 250791-5211.

Wildlife returning It’s that time of year again when the wildlife returns to British Columbia after wintering down south somewhere (they know where to go). The birds are starting to nest around the trails and meadows, so when walking around the 108, please try not to disturb the wildlife and keep control of your dog and cats. If using the trails around the

lakes, please clean up after your pets.

Garage sale Remember the 108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department’s garage sale on May 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Anyone wishing to rent a table for $10 each can contact fire chief Marcelle Ried at 250-706-8048. Please drop by and support your fire department.

Spreading thistles are a major problem in the grassland around Lac des Roches, but the Cariboo Regional District’s Invasive Plant Management team is going to help residents take control of the problem. Thanks to the efforts of several residents, property owners have been contacted and most have invited the team to assess and treat spot problems in the region. Initial application of herbicide is applied by the team free of charge to landowners and free support is available following that. Residents who may not have been contacted can call 1-800-665-1636 for more information.

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 benefit the whole industry. Ray Williston, B.C.

Ask an Expert: Should I put vinyl or aluminum gutters on my house? Some contractors in northern climates, will not install vinyl gutters because they don’t believe they hold up well in cold weather. Vinyl expands in heat and contracts in cold and has a tendency to become brittle and crack. A plus for vinyl is that it does not rust, rot or decay. Aluminum gutters are used in all climates. They, too, do not rust, rot or decay, but they are easily dented and dinged. At times, gutters fill with rain, snow or ice, causing them to sag from the weight. If the gutters have seams, the seams will pull apart somewhat. Seams are the most common places that gutters leak, causing damage to siding and windows and allowing water to reach basements and crawl spaces. Seamless gutters are designed to prevent this problem. Vinyl gutters are not available in seamless systems. They come in 10-foot lengths. Aluminum gutters can be purchased in sections or seamless. Seamless gutters are created on-site by use of a portable machine that produces the gutters in the length necessary for installation.
