Teachers’ union president opposes online-learning bill Carole Rooney Free Press

Riding into the future... Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School grad class of 2012 members Bo Stich, left, and Kirsty Bock kept their arrival to prom simple on the weekend. Others came on horseback, in fancy cars and hopped-up trucks to the gala celebration, which took place May 26 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. See more grad coverage on pages A19 - A22.

The province has passed new legislation that gives students the ability to take a mix of online and traditional school courses from kindergarten to Grade 9. Bill 36 expands an option now only open to grades 10-12 students. Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Association president Joan Erb says students need guidance and scrutiny to keep them on the learning track, especially with Internet “distractions and dangers.” “The thought of elementary kids taking courses online scares the daylights out of me.” The success rate for grades 10-12 students doing online courses is “very, very low”, she says, adding these courses also require supervision. “Let’s get stats on how successful these [current] online courses are with the secondary kids, and then let’s see if that would be appropriate for the elementary kids.” Younger children, particularly, need to be supervised to keep them motivated and on task, Erb explains. However, Education Minister George Abbott says amendments to the

School Act are intended to support British Columbia’s education plan for personalized learning and allowing greater flexibility and choice in terms of where, when and how students learn. Erb says the province is doing this to cut costs, and doubts the savings would make it back into the budget to fund other areas of education. “This is just a blatant way to put less money into public education and fewer services for kids in a system that’s already inequitable.” If students are completing online courses from home, she notes those computers may have no limitations applied to what can be accessed on the computer. “I’m just very, very concerned about the safety of younger kids taking online courses.” It’s easy to browse the Internet and just as easy to switch your computer display under conditions of occasional supervision, she says, adding that assumes parents are at home. “If there’s no teacher around, who is going to make you accountable for what you’ve got on your computer screen? There are all sorts of ugly

Feds to streamline resource applications Recent changes for resource development in Canada included in the 2012 federal budget will maintain a “strong integrity” in the environmental assessment process, says Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod.

“It’s just to get rid of a lot of unnecessary duplication that’s been happening over the years and put some reasonable timeframes around these projects.” In his budget speech, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty committed to streamline the review pro-

cess for resource projects under a principle of “one project, one review, completed in a clearly defined time period.” McLeod says these changes to the review process have been “needed for a long, long time. Whether the answer is a ‘yes’

or a ‘no’, I think we need to be moving these things forward in a much more seamless way.” Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says she agrees “it’s about time” for the See DEVELOPMENT… page A3

stuff out there on the Internet.” The thought of children as young as five or 10 years old having their personal information stored on Facebook or Twitter for up to five years is “dangerous,” Erb says, adding there’s the added risk of what they are exposed to in a potential chat situation. “Who knows what these kids are going to be open to? Even older kids have a hard time shutting that screen off when [other] stuff comes up.” Meanwhile, Abbot says the change offers options to students in smaller schools that aren’t currently available, and adds the purpose is not designed to encourage home schooling. Erb argues there isn’t anything in the Bill 36 she has found that indicates there will be any benefits to rural schools, but rather it points to allowing alternative online learning locations and after-hours scheduling. Other changes in Bill 36 eliminate the standard school year calendar to enable school districts to offer custom scheduling options to meet the needs of their students, while still adhering to the minimum number of instructional hours.

Mayors meet for all-new caucus ENTERTAINMENT Carole Rooney Free Press

100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall was one of 86 mayors from across the province who attended the inaugural BC Mayors’ Caucus in Penticton, May 16-18. The caucus is calling for an immediate discussion, beginning with Premier Christy Clark, to examine the state of British Columbia communities and a find more efficient use of existing resources to better address the challenges facing residents. Campsall says the mayors want to work with other levels of government to determine more efficient ways to use resources to fund municipal concerns, such as services and infrastructure. Much of the caucus discussions centred on higher levels of government downloading the responsibilities and related costs for these to municipalities. “It’s been going on for 15 years, and it’s been worse for the past seven years. There’s more being downloaded.” The caucus addressed some of the issues surrounding the fact there has never been a time of

District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall, left, and McBride Mayor Michael Frazier participated in the inaugural BC Mayors’ Caucus event in Penticton, May 16-18. Eighty-six mayors from each corner of the province were in attendance, where topics included A New Deal for B.C. Communities, Building B.C.’s Economy, and Moving Forward. greater challenges to local governments, Campsall notes. “The economy is ‘in the tank’. That affects the provincial government and the federal government, and when their tax revenues are down, our revenues are way down.” When logging, mining and corporate revenues decrease, he explains, the grants and loans just aren’t any there any more. “We’re at the bottom of the pit when you’re talking about the money loans, so it makes it a lot harder

because of the economy.” While the mayor walked into the caucus concerned it would be about “fighting” with higher governments, he notes that in reality, it was more about all levels working together to ensure existing funds are spent wisely. “The assumption was we were going down there to get more money out of the governments. It was exactly the opposite. It was trying to figure out ways to deal with the money we already have because

we know there’s no more money.” The ongoing transfer of financial burdens is something that needs to be addressed, Campsall says, but there needs to be resources assigned to cover additional local costs and prevent tax increases. Unconditional transfer payments are gone, which is one key issue raised by the caucus. “Everything is conditional, so it’s basically ‘oh, we’ll give [funding] to you for two years, or

five or 10 years, and then you’re on your own’.” The municipal fire departments are taking on more and more of a load in assisting the BC Ambulance Service, Campsall explains. More than 60 per cent of the calls the fire departments currently receive are medical calls, he adds. Campsall, who was recently acclaimed the North Central Local Government Association, was careful to note municipalities want to

continue to support the ambulance personnel, but explains it’s neither sustainable nor fair to the taxpayers to fund increasing assistance for medical aid without any compensation. The Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) is another area local governments will soon be taking on the financial burden, he notes. The ALC recently announced at a public meeting that it will soon cease handling land-reserve issues, Campsall explains. He says this leaves mayors worried those costs will also be off-loaded onto municipal and regional taxpayers. Waterways are federally-regulated, but municipalities aren’t compensated for meeting those laws either, Campsall adds. Library cuts were also discussed, as they do affect the municipalities, he says, which contribute to that funding through the regional districts. The BC Mayors’ Caucus is still in its fledgling state of development, Campsall notes, but is now looking to partner with others, potentially including the Union of B.C. Municipalities.

DEVELOPMENT… from page A1 federal and provincial project approval policies for natural-resource applications to amalgamate. “It will encourage people to [invest] when you see the lengthy process we go through now. When we’ve got two processes, I think we’re better with one good, strong, solid process.” The federal government review includes only environmental aspects, she notes, while the process in British Columbia includes social, economic and envi-

ronmental reviews. All three of these elements should be included in whatever the “new envelope” is going to look like, Barnett explains, and bring the two environmental assessments together. She notes gold prices may be up at one point but significantly lower a year or two down the road, so a long, drawn-out approval process can miss a window of mining opportunity. A review panel should include people from both the province and the

nation, she says, adding the “most important thing” will be a standardized terms of reference for both governments. “The Department of Fisheries and Oceans [Canada] is one of the strictest you’ll ever have, so it’s important for those [aspects], too, to have good, strong terms of reference.” Brian Battison, Taskeo Mines Ltd. corporate affairs vice-president, says the federal government is trying to develop oppor-

tunity, wealth and job creation for the country. “That’s why they are making these changes; they are changes that are needed, in my view.” The Prosperity Mines project has been through two environmental assessments, he notes. “The p ro v i n cial environmental assessment approved the project, and the province has responsibility for mine development ... granted by the Constitution.” The province decided

it was “justified in the circumstance” because of the Taskeo’s plan to develop a new lake, and “the benefit it would provide” to B.C., Battison explains, but the Canadian review panel declined to agree with this as grounds for approval. “The federal government, using the same information, the same terms of reference, came to the same conclusion as the province, and the same significant adverse conclusion as the province, at the loss of Fish Lake.”

Provincial gaming grants announced Carole Rooney Free Press

The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) Society will receive $68,400 in funding from the latest round of the province’s Community Gaming Grants. The society is among three local organizations recently announced as gaming grant recipients from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development program. The other local organizations to benefit from this round of gaming grants are the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre Society, which will receive $15,000, and the British Columbia Special Olympics - 100 Mile House Local, which will get $2,700. CFEC executive director Lisa De Paoli says the funds have been allocated directly to its programs, with $53,400 going to the Youth Zone, $6,000 for the Dads and Tots program and $9000 to the Community Kitchen. “We are so thankful to receive this funding, so we can continue to provide programs for children, youth and families in the South Cariboo.” However, the CFEC had applied for

Lisa De Paoli $100,000, which she explains was the funding amount received last year. While staff does appreciate the funding of $68,400, De Paoli notes it “leaves a big gap.” “We will be submitting an appeal because this approval [amount] is going to result in about a $40,000 deficit in the Youth Zone. “So, we hope that with the additional information we provide in the appeal process regarding how critical these services are to our community, we will receive the additional funding [and] result in $100,000.” The Youth Zone welcomed 9,500 youth visitors last year, she notes. While many of these are repeat visitors, De Paoli says this number is “incredible.” In addition to a

great many lunches and snacks, dinner is also served at the Youth Zone every Friday night, typically feeding between 50 and 100 local youth at a time, she explains. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says she supports the distribution of funds the government gains through gaming back to communities. “There is no better way to spread the wealth than with grant programs like these. “The recipients will benefit greatly from the funding, which will help the community fund arts, sports, social programs and environmental causes. I’m happy we’re able to reach out like that.” In response to the Community Gaming Grant Review conducted last July, the

B.C. Liberal government has allocated $15 million more in gaming grants than originally budgeted for 2011/12. This was through reinstated funding to adult arts, culture, and sport organizations; environmental groups; and animal welfare agencies; as well as increased financial support for organizations that have faced funding reductions in the past three years. De Paoli notes the Youth Zone grant will

GROW Centre funding cuts minimal Carole Rooney Free Press

Teacher associations are decrying the province’s decision to reduce adult education funding by 50 per cent. However, School District #27 (SD27) superintendent Diane Wright says the cuts will have a “minimal” effect on the free, adult programs offered at its local GROW Centre. The centres provide adult students with courses from the literacy level to secondary school completion. She explains 90 per cent of its local course requests come from graduated adults who need additional Grade 12 academic courses to pursue their choice in post-secondary education, and those will continue to be funded. “Mostly they are coming back to get

those academics, [such as] English 12, math 12, biology 12, and we are still able to offer those at no cost.” The province will cease funding, however, for some non-academic courses that make up the remaining 10 per cent of SD27 requests, Wright says. A change to how the district receives funding is also involved, but she notes that won’t impact students. The current process is that when a student

enters one of the district’s adult education courses, it receives 75 per cent of the provincial funding at the beginning, and the remainder when they successfully complete it. Beginning 2013/14, the school district will receive 50 per cent upfront funding, with the remainder upon course completion. This means students who sign up, but don’t complete a course for whatever reason will cost the district twice as much as it does now.

CRD gets invasive species funding The Cariboo Regional District will be getting $83,000 from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO) to help combat invasive plants. Invasive plants are not native to a particular ecosystem and have the potential to displace long-established species, causing considerable economic or environmental damage. They may disrupt natural ecosystems, reduce biodiversity, increase soil erosion, alter soil chemistry or adversely affect commercial crops. “Once invasive plants take root in a specific area, it can be extremely difficult to protect native species, says Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. “I know this funding will go a long way in helping combat this rural issue.” Methods used to minimize the spread of invasive plants include mechanical treatments (physical removal or destruction), chemical treatments (targeted use of herbicides), and biological controls (using an invasive plant’s natural preda-

Donna Barnett tors to control its growth). The invasive species grants will be used to: • protect habitats and native species from impacts

caused by expanding invasive plant populations; • develop collaborative invasive plant management strategies with all land management agencies at the local level; • identify and treat invasive plant species that are new to a region; • support First Nations IP Partnership Programs (12 established and several more in progress); and • support local government weed programs and awareness activities.

ICBC public consultation and engagement underway ICBC held its first of 12 public open houses in Vancouver on May 22 in an effort to get input on potential changes to the way it sets premiums for basic insurance coverage. According to the Crown corporation, this is part of a province-wide consultation and engagement process to give British Columbians the opportunity to provide their input on options for a fairer basic insurance system. Depending on customer feedback, about two-thirds of drivers could pay less than they do today and about one-third of drivers could pay more. While the nearest open houses in Kamloops and Prince George have already passed,

ost people won’t begrudge folks getting another statutory holiday every year (except maybe some struggling business owners), but how Family Day came together was the epitome of political bumbling and fumbling. On May 25, Premier Christy Clark announced British Columbia’s first Family Day would occur on the second Monday in February in 2013. There wasn’t a lot of fanfare over the announcement other than a few B.C. Liberal minions clapping each other on the backs for doing such a wonderful thing for families in this “Families First” province. Maybe British Columbians will become more excited next year, as the new Family Day long weekend gets closer. The fact that the extra day off falls just prior to the next provincial election is probably just a coincidence. To think it wasn’t would be cynical, and it would be like handing out free shots in the parking lots at the polling stations. No, this was the premier following up on a promise she made during the B.C. Liberal leadership race in January 2011. At the time, she promised to make the third Monday in February a new holiday. It would fall on the same day Family Day is celebrated in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Prince Edward Island. The reasoning was sound because, presumably, the thinking was this would give people an extra long weekend each year, so they could spend time with family in other provinces. However, that was when the anointed premier was popular and wasn’t chasing her tail to find the lost lustre. Now, as the B.C. Liberals lag in the popularity polls, she is prepared to do anything to show she and her cronies are the party of the people. Clark wanted to show the great unwashed the B.C. Liberals had learned their lesson from ramming the HST down our throats, so she was determined to allow the “people” help her government make the extremely important decision of when to hold Family Day. Apparently, 30,000 people responded to the plea for input and the decision was another B.C. Liberal leader would break a promise. Family Day will be held on the second Monday when the ski resorts and other vacations spots might be less busy than the busier third Monday when these venues would be crowded with people spending time in B.C. with their out-ofprovince families.

Military suicides: there is help In response to recent media coverage regarding military suicides and the federal government’s proposed medical services cutbacks, the Legion’s BC/Yukon Command is fighting for public recognition about the importance of intervention for our military serving members suffering from mental trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). For years, the Legion has been filling the gap where services for veterans were lacking. We know firsthand how hard it is for veterans and their families to cope with mental issues resulting from military service. We also know how to effectively work with veterans as they transition back to health and back into the community. There is no question the federal government provides certain levels of benefits and programs. However, these only go so far and the need is far greater than the public understands. Furthermore, the continuum of care that’s needed for successful transition is multi-disciplined. It’s not always possible for government or health and social agencies to case manage in this manner. In the absence of a tailored, responsive, and comprehensive continuum of care for our returning military, the Legion in BC/ Yukon has been making a powerful, practical difference by offering


GUEST SHOT one-of-a-kind programs, with lifechanging impact. • Veterans Transition Program (with UBC) for veterans suffering PTSD. • Military Skills Conversion Program (with BCIT) for veterans re-entering the marketplace. • Cockrell House for homeless veterans. The Legion does not receive government funding for these programs. These three programs have filled a void as none other. It was a void identified with our professional partners, as we experienced the growing need for unique programs to assist veterans. This is what we do in the Legion. We see a need, we seek out professional partners, we analyze what is required to be done and we create innovative programs. We finance these programs by virtue of our ongoing fundraising in 153 communities throughout British Columbia and Yukon. Our Legionnaires and Ladies Auxiliary also volunteer over 600,000 hours a year, a milestone beyond compare. More and more of these volunteer hours are now focused on engaging

the new generation of veterans and trying to help them transition back to their families. Legionnaires and Ladies Auxiliaries know firsthand military families bear more than their fair share of the load when one of their own serves in the Canadian military. Many of our new members are not military-related, themselves, but they are with us because they care. There is a tremendous need in our veteran community right now. From the veterans who are homeless to the silently suffering 26 year-old who don’t sleep anymore, it is the responsibility of all Canadians to reach out to them. Stepping up to the perceived stigmas of PTSD, to the plight of homelessness, and to the rejections of re-entering the workforce - this is what The Royal Canadian Legion is doing in British Columbia and Yukon for a new generation of veterans returning from overseas duties. The Legion is speaking up for those who have served this country with honour and we say they should get more services, not less. The cost to society will be borne by us all for years to come. Get involved by supporting Legion programs. Sharel Fraser is The Royal Canadian Legion BC/Yukon Command community and media relations director.

Letters to the editor



NTERTAINMENT Wolf kills shocking, and disgusting To the editor: As a member of Cariboo Wolf Protection, I want to respond to the page A 27 article in the May 2 Free Press, headlined Trappers win cash in wolf competition. I was shocked and disgusted with this article, especially with the picture. How is it possible that in 2012, these wolf killings are still allowed? This outrageous and stupid behaviour also tells me something about the level of knowledge and the lack of responsibility of our government. Here are some facts: • The BC Cattlemen’s Association website cites a Statistics Canada report that there were 525,000 head of cattle on B.C. farms and ranches at the beginning of 2010. • So, 55 wolf-caused losses to B.C.’s total herd would amount to slightly more than 0.01 per cent. • Over 1,500 wolves live in cattle country in Alberta. Between 1974 and 1991 only an average of 1.0 per cent of livestock losses each year were due to wolves. • Last year, 45,000 beef cattle went to the abattoir for slaughter. En route, according to SPCA statistics, about 0.02 per cent normally die in transit or arrive so injured they

must be euthanized. In other words, truck transports from ranch to slaughterhouse is about twice as serious a threat to livestock survival as wolves. So are we going to shoot the truck drivers now? I can go on about other causes of deaths, like respiratory ailments, digestive failures, calving problems, weather, etc. Why are these uneducated and ignorant people blaming the wolves, and only the wolves, for the cattle losses? There are other predators out there as well. Preventing predation: ranchers could use predator-friendly techniques, like maintaining human presence. Maybe our conservation officers should spend more time educating people! Could it be fear; could it be all the fairy tales about the wolves eating little children? Could it be all those trappers are just killing those beautiful wolves for fun? Once a good friend of mine told me: it is hard to fight ignorance and stupidity, and it certainly looks like it. Ingrid Motshagen 100 Mile House

Don’t destroy items others may need To the editor: As a resident of Lac la Hache, I find it very distressing someone finds it necessary to go to the share shed and cut the cords off of all the appliances. People take things to the share shed with the understanding there will be someone who can use these items. They don’t take items there for people to ruin them to make money from them. There are appliances in the back portion that have cords, so why take the cords off of working appliances? Can the person doing this see he or she is taking away from the community? I hope you see this and stop. Debbie Hofley Lac la Hache

Scenes from the farm trenches VICTORIA – With ongoing pipeline and oil tanker skirmishes, and a hot summer for mining and logging still to come, the green war in British Columbia shows no signs of slowing down. Things are already hot in the Fraser Valley, where the federal government’s change to the definition of fish habitat has opened a new front on the farms. Farmers briefly got into the public discussion by hauling a couple of cute calves into downtown Vancouver and staging a television-friendly demo in front of the federal fisheries office. They have been saying for decades that imposing salmon stream regulations on drainage ditches around their fields is impractical. Fraser Valley Conservative MPs Randy Kamp and Mark Strahl even had the nerve to meet with local mayors to hear their concerns about B.C.’s most productive farmland, without inviting selfappointed “activists.” Arrayed against them is an environmental lobby whose deep green wing was defined by Marvin Rosenau, a former provincial biologist who now teaches “fish, wildlife and recreation technology” at BCIT. “Mark Strahl is leading the charge of eco-fascists intent on making the last dime off the backs of the last remnants of an absolutely spectacular ecosystem,” Rosenau told the Chilliwack Progress. “A massive and productive floodplain of fish and aquatic values … has been drained, ditched, tiled and laser-leveled for agricultural profit.” The same could be said for the


BC VIEWS broad fields of Richmond and Pitt Polder farms north of the Fraser, a wetland diked and drained by Dutch settlers after the Second World War. Farms are “industrializing the landscape,” said Rosenau, who stopped short of calling for them all to be shut down. At the provincial level, we have a new Animal Health Act, which threatens heavy fines or even jail time for prematurely leaking reports of serious animal disease outbreaks. This was also portrayed as a jackbooted sellout of the public’s right to know, putting the business interests of land and ocean farms ahead of public safety. As is generally the case with meat inspection and livestock issues, the federal government is imposing rules on provinces in the wake of avian flu and “mad cow” outbreaks. Canadian beef was banned in 30 countries after a single, infected cow was identified in Alberta in 2003. B.C. Agriculture Minister Don McRae assures me this legislation will not result in reporters or envi-

ronmental activists being thrown in jail for telling the public about sick animals. They and the farmers themselves can say all they want, once infections are confirmed and quarantines established. McRae and B.C.’s chief veterinarian Paul Kitching pleaded for the public to understand that any farm-reporting system must rely on voluntary compliance by farmers. When the B.C. Liberal government took the advice of B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham and began releasing fish farm inspection data in 2010, the operators stopped providing samples voluntarily. The fish farmers’ position was you could have a co-operative system of farm inspections or one that’s imposed, but not both. Imposing inspections on land farms across B.C. is even less practical. Former Alberta premier Ralph Klein famously observed that the next rancher to find a possible mad cow should have “shot, shoveled and shut up” rather than file a report and devastate the industry. Denham, the NDP and others appear to operate under an assumption there should be sufficient government resources to sample and inspect every farm across B.C. for reportable contagious illnesses. This is similar to the fashionable notion that we should have enough park rangers to guard every cedar tree. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Being called by name important To the editor: Spring, being a time of the land’s resurrection, is time to write this letter. It was that kind of a morning when I walked out of the 100 Mile District General Hospital after my last shot of chemotherapy. I had received a big hug from the chemo nurse as I left the room, that angel with the sure and gentle hands, and I walked with a bounce and a grin on my face. Did I mention she called me by name? Chemotherapy, though life saving, has a brutal side. Parts of my body I always took for granted, rebelled at the onslaught in unexpected and embarrassing ways, strange side-effects and complication upon complication. A practical consequence of all

that was the many trips to the doctor, the lab, and even emergency. It could be three trips in a week, or even twice in one day. It was embarrassing to be there so frequently at a time when health-care resources are stretched so thinly and our health professionals are worked so hard. I marvel at the people who work at the hospital – the nurses and the lab techs, the admitting people and the doctors. Never, through the months of treatment, did I receive anything but helpful and caring service, and the greatest of respect - never a hint of negativity, usually a smile and a brightness, always respect for me as a person. They call you by name, sometimes your first to be friendly, and sometimes your last if they suspect

you need it. I wonder if they realize that when God wanted to show how much He loved us He did the same. Quoted in Isaiah, God said, “Who do you think knit you together in your mother’s womb? I called you before you were born. I called you by name.” Do they realize that by giving such personal attention, they are the instruments through which God continues to love in this world? I hope so because it is a beautiful reality, and a wondrous mission in life. To all of them at 100 Mile hospital, I say thank you, and “blessings on you.” Peter Hart Canim Lake

Newsbeat Around the province Growing pot nipped in the bud KELOWNA — A Lake Country man lost his home, cash and guns May 24, when he was convicted of growing marijuana. Rodney Jame Yax, 47, was convicted of multiple counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance and Production of a Controlled Substance in relation to a pair of grow operations the Lake Country RCMP busted on May 24, 2009. “Yax was handed down a one year conditional sentence with house arrest conditions and a 10 year firearms prohibition,” said Const. Kris Clark. “He was also ordered to forfeit 10 firearms and about $15,000 in cash that police seized in the raid, as well as his Forest Hill Drive property and 30 per cent of his Pretty Road property.” Yax is to remain on electronic monitoring until the expiry of his conditional sentence.

Badly beaten man uncooperative SALMON ARM - A Chase resident is still in hospital after he was severely beaten in his home more than a week ago. According to Chase RCMP Const. Laura Ford, the call came in around midnight on May 11. Police tried to contact the 60-year-old both by phone and in person, but McLeod refused to answer or open the door at his home. He was taken to the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops where he has remained since. Ford says investigators tried to follow up on the case but the man refused to co-operate. It appears the attack could have been drugrelated, but due to the victim’s refusal to provide information, police are unable to determine this for certain. Ford explains that if it is in the public’s interest, police would press on with the investigation, or if the issue continues. The man is not well-known to police.

another investigation on Fawn Creek Road near Lone Butte. When the driver was spoken to, an odour of liquor was detected and he admitted to having consumed liquor. An approved roadside screening device was administered and the result was a fail. The driver was detained and returned to the 100 Mile House detachment where two breath samples were obtained of 210 and 200 mg%. He was released from custody on a promise to appear with a court date in August. Charges of impaired driving and driving over the legal limit will be recommended to the Crown against a 35-year-old 100 Mile House area man. Nervousness a giveaway On May 25, police were conducting routine patrols in downtown 100 Mile and an officer observed a male attempting to cross Highway 97 and almost get hit by a motorist. The man was approached by the officer and suspect acted nervous. Although he initially provided a false name, he was subsequently identified by another party and admitted to his correct identity.

The 55-year-old Lower Mainland man had outstanding warrants for theft and assault out of Abbotsford. He was arrested and remanded into custody to appear before a judge in Williams Lake.

Theft over charge On May 25, 100 Mile RCMP received a report that a stolen vehicle from Quesnel may be in the 6000block of Fawn Creek Road near Lone Butte. See RCMP… page A39

OHMSA and Sunrise FORD are pleased to announce another HUGE opportunity for the community. DRIVE ONE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY is an amazing NON-fundraiser FUNDRAISER brought to you exclusively by Sunrise FORD and OHMSA!

A beautiful soccer facility has been built and we need to continue its expansion. This event will give us up to $6000 if YOU show up to test drive a new market-changing FORD vehicle. NO ONE WILL SELL YOU and NO ONE WILL CALL YOU LATER. This is about getting money for the kids and we need your help as one of the 300 drivers that will help earn the $20 for each 5 minute test drive necessary to earn the total available $6000 that FORD of Canada and Sunrise FORD are trying to give away! ON JUNE 2ND show up between 9:30am to 4:30pm at the SAVE-ON-FOODS parking lot and give us the few minutes it takes to make this great community fundraiser successful.

Newsbeat McFee: ‘little owie to keep away big owie’ By Monika Paterson Free Press

There is a good possibility children who are vaccinated at the upcomingKindergarten Immunization Clinic will fuss, cry and maybe scream, but they will be protected from disease after it’s over. The clinic is for children born in 2007 and is at the South Cariboo Health Centre, June 6-7 from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This pre-kindergarten immunization clinic is for children entering kindergarten in September, says Jody McFee, Interior Health Authority Public Health 100 Mile House. Children will be greeted when they arrive, receive their immunizations and then they will have to wait around for about 15 minutes to ensure they do not have a reaction. While they’re waiting, the children will be able to go to “The Fair” in the multipurpose room where there will be a number of community groups, such as Canlan Ice Sports and the 100 Mile & District Minor Hockey Association, displaying information. The 100 Mile House Branch Library will be giving the children a free book. Various other local children-oriented activity providers will also be in attendance. Children can collect stickers, enter a draw and someone will receive a teddy bear to take home. An ambulance and possibly an RCMP cruiser will be outside during part of the day, for the children to check out. Each child will also receive a goodie bag filled with safety information and some neat stuff including colouring pages, McFee says, adding

the emergency services representatives will also talk to the children and explain the importance of wearing bike helmets while riding their bike as well as the importance of wearing sunscreen. It would be really helpful for parents to bring in their child’s immunization records, as well as any information regarding medications, any previous adverse reactions to any medications, and whether they have seen a dentist or an eye doctor. McFee says, parents should tell the nurse about any other medical conditions their children may have. For more information on the clinic or to book an appointment, call the Health Centre at 250-395-7676.

Class digging in for plant sale Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Good deals are growing at the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) greenhouse. The agriculture 11/12 students have spent the current semester nurturing thousands of bedding plants, and on June 2, they will all be sold

at their annual plant sale. It takes place at the PSO greenhouse from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and teacher Claudia Morgenthaler says doors will not open to the public before 9 a.m. “There will be absolutely no earlybirds. We need the morning to set up.” She wants people

to note it is a one-day sale this year. In previous years, the sale ran two days, beginning on the Friday, but the combination of school bus traffic and general congestion was an issue. The sale will feature more hanging baskets than in the past and eight varieties of tomatoes, says Morgenthaler. She

adds there’s a great variety of herbs and many new plants they’re trying for the first time. Morgenthaler invites shoppers to look at the garden patch beside the greenhouse, which supplies vegetables for the school’s Building a Bistro breakfast and lunch program.

• Limit or even eliminate the use of pesticides. These toxic products are particularly harmful to the health of all living beings, as well as to the environment. Creating a l a n d s c a p e d environment with indigenous plants, using all natural soil enrichers and no harmful chemicals is easy and makes for a more satisfying gardening experience.

Mc Mil lan

• Use only fertilizers made from all-natural sources, such as those made with a base of chicken manure. • Spread a 5-centimetre layer of organic mulch. Mulch is an efÀcient weapon in the Àght against weeds and helps the soil retain moisture. • Don’t waste water. Water your plants less often but thoroughly. Remember that plants only need 3 centimetres of water per week. Collect rainwater in a rain barrel and use it for watering.


Green or ecological gardening means adopting gardening methods that respect the environment. Ecological gardening is simple, economical, and within everyone’s reach. Here are a few guidelines for going green in the backyard: • Choose plants according to how many hours of sunshine your garden receives. Plants grown in the right place will be healthier and more resistant to disease and harmful insects. • Opt for indigenous plants. They will require less care, as they are perfectly adapted to our climate. A word of caution: purchase your indigenous plants at a garden centre and leave those growing wild in their natural habitat. • Enrich the soil with compost. By adding compost to your soil, you are giving nutritional elements to micro-organisms, which in turn provide essential minerals to plants. If possible, make your own compost.

Relay for Life: Cancer prevention in action By Patti Moore In 100 Mile House, a skin-cancer prevention initiative called Tanning is Out came to life thanks to youth volunteers at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School. Says Amanda Harris, Canadian Cancer Society Southern Interior health promotion co-ordinator: “It’s been a pleasure to work with these energetic youth in 100 Mile House who took action educating

their peers about the dangers of tanning and about how they can protect their skin. “A huge thank you goes out to 100 Mile House for being part of this initiative and I invite everyone in 100 Mile House and the region to celebrate the successes we’ve had and to honour those in the community facing cancer by coming out to the 100 Mile House Relay for Life.”

Folks, who are curious about the relay but not quite ready to sign up a team, are urged to come out to the park. It doesn’t cost a thing, Harris says, adding they can bring the whole family and part in the entertainment, kids’ activities, food and fun. “You can cheer on your local teams and make a difference simply by being there!” The 100 Mile Canadian

Cancer Society Relay for Life takes place at Centennial Park on June 9 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Donations from the relay and all Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) fundraising activities support cancer prevention initiatives, such as Tanning is Out, as well as cancer support programs and research. For more information about 100 Mile House Relay for Life contact Alaina Fryer at 250-706-8082.

Discouraging deer the green way creating offensive odours or tastes. These work best if several items are used throughout the season. Bags of human hair scattered throughout the garden and the smell of Irish Spring Soap may raise eyebrows of the un-initiated but they can be effective. Such solutions must be freshened on a regular basis in order to keep working. Deer resistant

Deer are one of the most common complaints of gardeners. Solutions exist, but it often takes an integrated approach to m i n i m i z e damages. Excluding deer from the garden is the only truly effective means of eliminating any damages to one’s garden. High fences or electric fences can create the barrier needed, but may not be viewed as neighbourly or appropriate for all areas (who wants to live in Fort Knox?). Te m p o r a r y electric fences especially around food gardens are under-utilized. Repellents such as human hair, bars of soap, bloodmeal, moth balls and commercial c h e m i c a l repellents discourage feeding by

Home run for minor softball association Ken Alexander Free Press

The South Cariboo Minor Softball Association is moving along nicely this season, says association president Kari Edle. The number of players is close to last year’s figures and they hit the fields on May 1. There are four teams in the Level 1 for children five-six years and four in Level 2 (seven-eight years). The association has two Mite teams for nine- and 10-year-old players. The Squirts division (11-12 years) has three house teams and one tournament team, called 100 Miles An Hour, which is coached by Kyle Moore. There is one Peewee squad

for 13- and 14-year-old players. The Bantam team, which is for 15- and 16-year-olds, plays against the Peewees and also fields a team in the 100 Mile Men’s Fastball League. Edle says the Bantams have been welcomed to the men’s league with open arms. Everyone knows the only way men’s fastball is going to stay alive in 100 Mile House is if they give the young players some experience at the next level, she adds. She adds there is a really good volunteer base for the association this year and a great working relationship with men’s league, which has players (dads) coaching the minor softball teams.

Canadian crew rows to World Cup bronze Gabe Bergen of 100 Mile House is a member of the Canadian men’s eight team that brought home a bronze medal recently from the Samsung World Rowing Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland. Prospects going into the final looked good for the Canadian team when it placed first in its preliminary heat and broke a world record time, by shaving a half-second off the 2004 record set by the United States. In the final, Germany and Great Britain got off to quick starts and used it to keep distance between them and the Canadian boat. Bergen says they had a

strong tailwind working for them in the heat. “We raced very well and we were able to record the best time. Everybody in the boat has had a great winter of training and we hope to keep the momentum moving forward.” The Canadian crew included coxswain Brian Price (Belleville, Ont.), Will Crothers (Kingston, Ont.), Jeremiah Brown (Cobourg, Ont.), Andrew Byrnes (Toronto, Ont.), Malcolm Howard (Victoria), Conlin McCabe (Brockville, Ont.), Rob Gibson (Kingston), Doug Csima (Oakville, Ont.) and Bergen.

Chris Stevens wins Breakfast Open By Spence Henderson Forty-nine golfers had a beautiful day to play golf in the annual 108 Men’s Breakfast Open. Chris Stevens led the way with a 72 for the low-gross title. Ed Caissie shot one of his career rounds to take the overall low net with a 64. There were seven deuces recorded with Dave Robertson holing two and Vern Jeffrey recording one in the first flight. James Seeley the only one in the second flight, and Jim French, Jamie Crellin and Theo Wiering in the third flight. Jay Scott had two long drives and a KP (closest to the pin) in the second flight. First flight Matt McNeil took the low gross with a 78 in a count back with Bill Harris. Eric Ohlund took the low net. Second flight Al Sidor’s 79 was good enough for the low-gross title, while Mark Larson grabbed the low-net bragging rights.

Third flight Jim French shot his way to an 83 and the low-gross honours, while Harvey Knapp walked away as the low-net winner. The match play championship signup is in the pro shop now and runs until June 6. The low-net golfers may get byes in the first-round matchups.

Little Britches Rodeo draws good crowd Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Numbers were up on both sides of the fence at the 2012 100 Mile House Little Britches Rodeo at the Outriders arena, May 19. The 100 Mile & District Outriders Club ran the event with help from the South Cariboo Rodeo Association and members of the community. Club vice-president Denise Little says the spectator stands were full and the list of contestants was longer than it has been in recent years. She adds the registration was around 100, with 75 main entrants and 25 riders in the mutton bustin’ competition. “The past has seen about 45 (main entrants). This wasn’t the biggest ever, but the biggest in recent years,” she says, adding that local participation was low. Little cautiously attributes the high spectator count to the absence of the Streetfest children’s event, which ran simultaneously with the rodeo in past years. “More people seemed to know there actually was a rodeo, where in the past, they didn’t.” Also absent was the traditional Little Britches Parade, which she adds resulted in people arriving at the rodeo earlier than usual. Little notes she is aware of comments from people who say they were sorry there was no parade this year, but regardless, she considers the rodeo a great success. “It was a good day, a good turnout and nobody got hurt, which is always a good thing.” The all-around winner in the junior girls division was Elly Farmer from Savona (Sav) and reserve champion was Leah Keller of Coldstream. In the junior boys division, Carson Payton of Maple Ridge (MR) rode off with the all-around award, and Dyson Leneve from Quesnel (Ques) was reserve winner. Jennifer Schuk of Tatla Lake was senior girls champion and the reserve championship saw a tie between Bacardi Zimmerlee of Clinton (Clint) and Nevada Hinton from Prince George (PG). The senior boys champion was Armoni McRae and Jared Rose earned the reserve championship. Both are from Quilchena

100 Mile & District Outriders would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to the following businesses and people for sponsorships and help in making the 46th Annual Little Britches Rodeo a big success. This rodeo involves the whole community and we thank you very much. Without all your help, it would not have been possible.

Many of the top names on the BCRA circuit put in great performances on livestock supplied by Diamond D Rodeo Bulls of 100 Mile House and C Plus Rodeos of 150 Mile House. “Guys who would draw people showed up and did what they were supposed to do,” says rodeo spokesperson Dave Atkinson. Bacardi Zimmerlee of Clinton pulled off a win in junior barrel racing and pocketed $179.45 in prize money. Ty Lytton of Lac la Hache paired with Colby Stewart from Kamloops in the team roping event to place sixth and collect $77.81 apiece. The weather could have been better, but that didn’t keep stands from filling on Sunday and being adequately filled on Monday. Atkinson also worked the ring as a bull fighter, along with Earl Call, and both wore 100 Mile House Wranglers hockey team jerseys throughout the weekend. Some of the success of the event was due to volunteer efforts of the Ed Monical family and Dave McDermid, who aren’t rodeo club members, Atkinson says, adding they pitched in to help out both days. He notes the 100 Mile & District Outriders Club also a great help. Rodeo contestants were rewarded with points and prize money and the top 3 in each event, from first to third were: Bareback: Steve Hohmann, Quesnel

(Ques), 78 score, $240.24; Jarred Marshall, Prince George (PG), 70, $180.18; and Christoph Muigg, Hazelton, 65, $120.12.

Bantams get first win in men’s fastball The Lac la Hache Food Market Bantams picked up their first victory of the season as they knocked off Shuswap 9-6 in 100 Mile Men’s Fastball League action at Lumberman’s Park, May 24. When the Bantams play against other league teams, the two squads switch pitchers and catchers, so the Bantam chucker pitches against his teammates, and the men’s battery goes against their team. Bantam coach Greg Edle explains it is the only way to get some experience for his players, as they

wouldn’t be able to stand up against the older pitchers who can “really fire the ball.� Mark Boyce was the winning pitcher for the Bantams, as he chucked all five innings of the game before time ran out. Kevin Neufeld threw the first three innings for Shuswap before Daryl Eustache came in relief for the last two innings.

who recorded eight strikeouts in the four innings he threw. Bob Collens came in to relieve Hooper and pitched the last two innings. Jason Armeneau got the start for Jake’s Pub and pitched 4 2/3 innings and recorded a strikeout before being relieved by Greg Parent, who normally starts for Jakes. Parent finished the game.

Hornets sting Jake’s Pub Sanford & Dillman Hornets beat Jake’s Pub 6-1 thanks to a stellar performance by big Reg Hooper

Rally a game changer Red Rock Grill defeated Exeter Sporting Goods 9-5 on May 22. Red Rock had a big

two-out rally in the bottom of the fourth inning and scored five runs off Exeter starter Paul Carey. Matt Ounpuu hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to put Red Rock up 9-2. Exeter mounted a comeback during its last at bat, scoring three runs, but that was as close as they would get. Pat Findlay pitched a complete game for the Red Rock victory. Tourney cancelled The intra-league tournament scheduled for May 26-27 had to be cancelled

because only three teams could field squads. The decision on whether to reschedule the tourney is pending.

Who’s on first? Tonight (May 30) has Shuswap looking to avenge last week’s loss against the Bantam, while Exeter and Red Rock look to break the deadlock at

Where they stand As of May 25, Exeter and Red Rock Grill are tied for first place with eight points with 4-1 records. Sanford follows with six points and 3-2 record. Shuswap, Jake’s and the Bantams round out the standings with identical 1-4 records for two points.

BUY A GARAGE SALE PACKAGE AT THE 100 MILE FREE PRESS AND WE’LL HELP YOU HAVE A GREAT SALE! 10 TIPS TO A GREAT SALE! 1. Place your advertisement for 2 weeks in our classified section. 2. Call friends and neighbours to see if they’d like to do a sale together. The bigger the selection, the more customers you’ll have. 3. Give yourself a couple of days to get organized. 4. Gather boxes, newspapers, and bags to use during the sale to package purchases. 5. Set your dates and times. The first and middle of the month are paydays for many people. 6. Take the time to clean up your items… products will sell better when they look “taken care of.” 7. Make the most of your display by setting up in a visible area such as the front yard, the driveway or near the curb. Don’t tuck yourself and your merchandise in a dark garage. 8. Label everything for sale with tape. Price it so you might consider buying it for yourself. 9. Before the sale, go to the bank. Get plenty of small bills and change to have on-hand. Keep a calculator handy for quick adding. 10. Be an entrepreneur. Make extra money by selling canned sodas, lemonade, etc., to shoppers. If you have kids, have them do this!

Annual shoot this weekend Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Archers from all over British Columbia are getting ready to compete in the Bighorn Bow Hunters Archery Club annual outdoor 3D shoot. The 100 Mile House club will be hosting the event at the 100 Mile Snowmobile Club trails at 99 Mile, June 2 and 3. Club secretary denise swift says they are expecting up to 100 people to compete, with visitors coming from as far away as Prince Rupert, the Lower Mainland, and, possibly, Calgary. “100 Mile has gained a reputation for putting on a good shoot.” Registration cost is $35 for the weekend, and swift says they have competition categories for people from two to 90 years. There are two courses

with 20 targets each and archers will do both courses each day. Registration begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday and will continue throughout the day. Saturday night will feature a catered dinner

for an additional cost, and there will be a concession stand on site all weekend. Camping on the grounds will be free of charge. “Everybody should come because it’s so much fun,” says swift.

Jan. 5, 1931 - May 9, 2012 Donna slipped away on May 9th at the home of her daughter, Debra, with her daughters, Debra and Diane, in attendance, and her son, Daniel, keeping vigil close by. Many of her family were able to visit her from the time of her diagnosis of cancer and her death, approximately a one month period. She appreciated the visits from each and every one. Her children think of her as an amazing mom, her colleagues as an amazing nurse and hospital administrator. Donna was a great mom and good friend, to her own children, as well as to friends of her children. The only thing better than having you as our mother, was our children having you as a grandmother and great-grandmother. Donna was, indeed, an incredible influence on her children, grandchildren, friends, colleagues, and many others. Wow, Mom, you made a difference in a large number of lives. Good for you! You have left your mark. During the course of her working career, she was Matron of the Bralorne Hospital, RN and Supervisor at Campbell River & District General Hospital, and RN and Administrator at 100 Mile House & District General Hospital. There will be no service. A family gathering to spread Mom’s ashes will be held sometime over the summer.


Eberhard (Abe) Ernst Nov. 20, 1935 - May 22, 2012 With great sorrow we announce that Abe passed away peacefully with his family by his side. Abe is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Joan; his four sons: Michael, Christopher, David (Tina) and Dr. Richard Steeves (Anna); eight grandchildren: Terry, Amanda, Josh, Oliver, Christyn, David, Sara and Karl; great-grandson Draven; sister Marianne Baumgartner and brother-in-laws Günther Bartholomes and Hermann Walz and many nieces and nephews in Germany. Abe was born in Stuttgart, Germany and came to Canada in 1953. He resided at Canim Lake for the last 26 years. This gentle husband, father, grandfather and greatgrandfather will be greatly missed, but always in our hearts. Many thanks to the staff of 100 Mile Hospital and the wonderful nurses at the ICU at the Royal Inland Hospital for their care and compassion. No service by request.


Glen Elmo With both joy and sorrow we celebrate the life of Glen Elmo White, who on May 18, 2012 suddenly and unexpectedly entered into the presence of the Lord. Glen was born in Vancouver, B.C., on December 25, 1941 to Mary (nee Parker) and Percy White. He grew up in various small communities in B.C., including Burns Lake, Canoe Flats, Sooke and Windermere. He was the eldest of four children and is survived by his three younger sisters. Glen attended UBC and graduated with his B.Sc. in geology and geophysics, also receiving his P.Eng. He worked briefly as an employee and then began his entrepreneurial career by starting a number of consulting companies in the mining industry. Over the course of his professional career, Glen consulted on various gold, silver and base metal exploration properties throughout North America. He was blessed to work in a career he loved and Glen brought to mineral exploration an intensity and integrity that will be missed. Though Glen spent his professional career searching for buried treasure, his most valuable treasure was his relationship with Jesus Christ. Glen was active in church life from the moment he surrendered control of his life to Jesus in 1974. During various times of his life, Glen was a deacon in the church, taught bible study, participated in drama and scripture reading, and preached the Word of God. Glen did not believe science and faith were mutually exclusive; instead, his love for Jesus Christ and his pursuit of scientific knowledge led him to author two books arguing the opposite. Glen considered “Of the Something More” and “Schism of the Cosmos” to be some of his most important life’s work, summarizing his thoughtful synthesis of faith and science. These books can be found at Though we rejoice that Glen is alive and well with the Lord he loved, Glen will be deeply missed by many friends and family, including his wife of 46 years, Karen (nee Troop), four daughters and sons-in-law, seven grandchildren and his mother-in-law. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on June 2, 2012 at Bethel Pentecostal Community Church in 100 Mile House.

MS support group sought for 100 Mile By Monika Paterson Free Press

In December 2010, Alana Sinclair was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) following the birth of her third child. The 108 Mile Ranch resident says she is finding that there really is not a lot of support in the community for people with MS. “I would like to introduce a support group to the community because it is not only going to support me but other people in the community who are also coping with MS.” It would be nice to connect with others in a similar situation, she adds. Being new to coping with this disease and diagnosed at age 27 while living in Kamloops, Alana explains she began to experience numbness and tingling in her hands and arms. She could not figure out why and when she went to the hospital to get checked out, she was told that it was probably a pinched nerve from her pregnancy and pregnancy weight gain. However, she did not gain weight, but instead lost weight during her pregnancy and was considered to be high risk. There was a bleed

108 Mile resident Alana Sinclair battles Multiple Sclerosis every day of her life. It is frustrating for her because she never knows how she will feel one day to the next. found in the placenta, and at the time, doctors were unsure if she would be able to carry her baby to full term. Her son was delivered 10 weeks early and spent 45 days in hospital. Alana says he is her “miracle baby.” After delivering him, she became very sick with a form of meningitis. She went to the Kamloops hospital three different times because she felt there was something seriously wrong.

Alana says the doctors told her it was just a severe cold she was going through. However, she stressed that something didn’t feel right and that something was very wrong going on. “I began to stumble, fall up stairs and my balance was off.” So, the doctors sent her for a MRI scan and that was when they found the lesions on her brain, which were causing the MS. The disease was not diagnosed until

she went to the MS clinic in Vancouver, where she was finally diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS (RRMS). According to the MS Society website, RRMS is a course of MS characterized by unpredictable but clearly defined episodes during which new symptoms appear, or existing ones get worse. These “episodes” are also known as attacks, exacerbations, or flare-ups. Typically attacks come on over a few hours to a

few days, and last anywhere from 48 hours to a few months. The hallmark of RRMS is the recovery, or “remission” that occurs between attacks. Between attacks, recovery is complete, or nearly complete to preattack function, and this recovery persists for a clear period of time. The time between attacks is variable, but can be months or even years. About 85 per cent of people have RRMS at the time of diagnosis. Alana says the MS is holding her back from being a mom to her children who are living with her parents, and she goes to see them as often as possible. “I have very good supporting parents. One of the hardest things was to realize my kids should be with my parents; they needed to be in a better place to be taken care of as I’m having difficulty in taking care of myself. “I am wanting to focus on my children but I can’t because I am stuck in a body that is not co-operating, a body that is not my own. “So, how am I able to take care of three children? I could not provide them what they deserve and that is the main reason why they are with my family.” Some of her mornings

start normal, Alana says, but she never knows how her days will go. One day, she moves through her day with reasonable normality, Alana adds, but she has difficulty with reading and memory, so she works around this by writing many things down instead of trying to remember it all. The next day she could have tremors and spends the day resting, drifting in and out of sleep feeling extremely exhausted and not understanding why. On her tougher days, Alana says she deals with a lot of lower back pain and she is pretty much done for the day. Currently, she is also unable to drive. Alana notes everybody with MS is affected differently, and it is hard to understand what the full spectrum of the symptoms is from one person to the next. Someone could be diagnosed with RRMS, which is what Alana has, and someone else, who has been going through RRMS, may go for lengthy time periods without any symptoms. Then another can be diagnosed and go downhill very quickly. Currently, she is receiving weekly visits from home support. Alana says her parents have See SINCLAIR… page B2

Mother’s Day breakfast enjoyed a large crowd


A lot of residents enjoyed the Highway 24/Interlakes Lions Mothers’ Day pancake breakfast May 13. Octogenarian Lions Kitty Carroll and Russ Ross

manned the door, Carolyn Charlton sold last-minute raffle tickets, and a dozen or more Lions slaved away at the outdoor barbecue or in the kitchen. It was a grand feast, and free for all mothers including the writer. Young Veronica DeVries drew the raffle winner, and the barbecue, which was generously donated by Canwest Propane Ltd. and Bridge Lake Store, went to Tom Stavert of Imperial Ranchettes.

Claude Mailhot, left, and Harv Allen, cooked a great pancake breakfast for the annual Mothers’ Day celebration.

Market in mid-June. “There are a few “i’s to dot, and there is a question as to whether Deka District and West Sheridan residents can collect large parcels at Sheridan, or they will still have to drive to Lone Butte for them.” Obviously, Deka residents would prefer Sheridan, which is some 15 kilometres closer than Lone Butte.

Moving back to 100 Mile House, she found there were not any MS support groups in the area, and being afflicted with this disease and symptoms that change on a daily basis, Alana says she would find it helpful for herself to meet with other people who are also coping with this disease and to learn more about what helps others

cope on a daily basis. The MS Society is putting on a free (donations gratefully excepted) conference in Kamloops with guest speakers - a doctor, a patient and a caregiver - on June 2 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Desert Gardens Community Centre.

Local Can Can dancers getting a leg up By Monika Paterson Free Press

A local Glitz & Glamour Can Can performance sparked the beginning of a 12-member dance troupe in the Cariboo. 100 Mile House resident Kelly Pollock and Bernice WeihsTorheiden from Clinton performed at the Glitz & Glamour fundraiser for the Fischer Place and Mill Site Lodge last summer. The Mill Site Lodge/Fisher Place Auxiliary decided on a gold rush theme and wanted Can Can dancers to entertain. Pollock says she had the good fortune to meet Weihs-Torheiden who has more than

The Mill Girl Follies Dance Troupe participated in the Clinton May Ball Parade on May 26 and won first prize for their entry. The troupe has blossomed quickly in Clinton and it’s looking for more members throughout the South Cariboo. 20 years of Can Can experience. She has performed throughout British Columbia,

the United States and Europe. Having recently moved to Clinton,

Weihs-Torheiden says she was thrilled to be considered for doing the performance with

help from Pollock, who has a background in dance, and the Mill Girl Follies Dance Troupe was born. Wanting to honour their first performance opportunity is one reason they have the word, Mill, in our name, adds Pollock. The troupe has quickly grown to 12 members and still growing, Pollock says, adding practices take place at least once a week and often twice, with more practices leading up to key performances. “Right now, we have available practice space in Clinton and 70 Mile and would look at other areas, such as 100 Mile House, depending on the concentration of

dancers and availability of practice space, but not all members are always available for all practices and performances.” Ladies wishing to join the dance troupe can be from 20 to over 50 year old, she notes. “We love it if our members have a dance or acrobatic background, but it is not essential. Being physically fit is more relevant than age, as this is a high-energy cardio workout.” Pollock says the members pay a nominal monthly fee, which goes towards replenishing costume supplies. “We will be doing some benefit performances and paid performances to keep

the troupe afloat. We just performed at the Clinton Annual Ball, which was the ‘coming-out party’ for the expanded troupe.” Many of our dancers have just come onboard since January, she adds, so it was a huge undertaking to get ready, but was a very enthusiastic response. “With that under our belt, we are now looking at new opportunities. For starters we will be performing in Williams Lake on July 26 at 5 p.m. in their Concert in the Park series.” Call WeihsTorheiden at 250-459-2259 or Pollock at 250-395-6134 for information about joining this troupe.

Community Showcase Hilda Fischer is the guest artiste in Bridge Lake

Library’s Community Showcase for the month of June. She is well-known for her Brazilian embroidery, which she also teaches. Of German heritage, Hilda was born in Paraguay and came to Canada in 1975, and to the Cariboo in 1977. “I always bought patterns, but now I make my own designs. I might make a circle, then a road from it and a flower, and another road and so on. “I bought so many patterns back in the ’90s the wholesaler

called me and said I should take a course because I was knowledgeable enough. So I took one in Vernon, and have had my papers to teach throughout North America since 2004.” Hilda also does Hardanger work, which comes from Norway and is strictly geometric, and created by pulling threads and making kloster blocks of satin stitch called battlements, which are then filled with webs, spokes, wheels, etc. Hardanger typically has scalloped edges of buttonhole stitch.

Q: I want to watch my Bell TV while I’m RVing this summer. What are my options?

Under the old rules, you had to stop working in order to collect early CPP. Starting January 1, 2012, anyone turning 60 can start to collect Canada Pension Plan. You don’t have to stop working, but the catch is you have to keep paying into CPP even if you start collecting it early. The good news is paying into it will also increase your future benefit. Under the old rules, you can take CPP before 65 but at a reduced rate of 0.5% for every month prior to your 65th birthday. Under the new rules, the percentage to reduce your CPP will gradually increase from 0.5% to 0.6% over the next five years. Simply put, that means they are going to hit you harder for taking CPP early. Your decision should be part of a comprehensive retirement plan, which considers all sources of retirement income, tax and other government benefits. All information provided is collected with care, and we are not responsible for any omissions or errors.

A: Aside from the obvious need for power, you’ll need a dish, something to mount it to, and a general idea of the satellite coordinates for the area you’re in. A compass and satellite meter are also helpful tools that will save some time. For $199, we can set you up with a satellite dish, tripod, 50’ of cable, a satellite meter, and some instruction on how to point your dish. For those people more inclined to sit back and relax, there are other, higher priced options that take all the work out of setting up. The Cadillac of these is the “in motion” system that mounts on the roof of your RV and will track the satellite while you’re going down the road, allowing your partner to watch TV while you drive. This system can be purchased for under $1500 before installation. The more popular option is the stationary, roof-mount “dome” which only works when you’re parked. For years, this was the only option available, but the drawback is that you have to park where there’s nothing blocking the satellite. Today, we can sell you a fully automatic portable unit for under $1000! Park where you want, set the portable dish on the ground, hook up the wires and you’re done. The bonus is that this unit can also be used at the cabin, which makes it my choice for RVing.

Because not everyone plays by the rules. When it comes to auto insurance, you really do have to look out for yourself. That’s because some drivers don’t have enough (or any!) coverage. Consider this real-life scenario: You and your passenger are seriously injured in a crash. The other driver is at fault, but doesn’t have enough liability insurance to pay for the full cost of your injuries - major expenses such as lost wages or a lifetime of medical care. For just $25 a year, you can purchase Excess Underinsured Motorist Protection. This increases your basic UMP coverage, up to a total limit of $2 million. Who’s covered? • you and anyone else in your vehicle • you, no matter what vehicle you’re in, and • members of our household riding in any vehicle (except ones they own), or who are injured as pedestrians or cyclists.

Do all joint owners of property have the “right of survivorship?”

A: People often assume that there is only one legal form for joint ownership of property. In fact, however, there are two. Joint owners can be either “joint tenants” or “tenants-in-common.” The difference? In 4 words: “the right of survivorship.” When one of two “joint tenants” dies, the survivor is automatically the owner of the entire property. For “tenants-incommon,” however, the “right of survivorship” isn’t automatic – the will of the deceased decides who will get the property. Usually, a husband and wife who own their home together will want to use joint tenancy – to take advantage of the right of survivorship. On the other hand, people who own a business property usually want the property to pass according to their will. Joint tenancy and tenancy-in-common – there is a difference!



Lynn Anderson How does excess UMP protect me?

mortgage promotions. They are certainly attention getters but these mortgages often come with restrictions that can cost you in the long run. That’s why it’s important to check the fine print: • A fully closed mortgage means you’re not leaving the lender unless you sell your house, so your options are limited and you have no negotiating power if your needs change in the next 5 years • Low or no prepayments gives you no or limited ability to chip away at your principal to reduce your overall cost • Maximum 25-year amortization can take away important flexibility like taking a 30 year amortization but setting your payments higher using a 25-year or lower amortization, which keeps open the possibility of reducing payments later should you need breathing room for an emergency situation or special need. Who really knows what life might be like a few years down the road? The lack of flexibility associated with a no-frills mortgage could end up causing you some major headaches. Shop around for low-rate full feature mortgages that provide more flexibility and could save you thousands. Rate is not the one and only factor in choosing a mortgage!

Angela Binns Certified General Accountant

Q: Can anyone call themselves an “accountant”? A: Many people are not aware that “accountant” can be the name used to describe a range of different people, some of whom may not even be qualified. This is not like a Barrister/Solicitor which means someone that is qualified to give you legal advice. There are three types of designated accountants in British Columbia, the Chartered Accountant (CA), the Certified General Accountant (CGA) and the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) Each type have vigorous education and practical requirements so you are well served with either one, however, some designations carry differing areas of expertise so depending on your needs, you may be better off with one versus another. The CMA is great in industry as their training weighs heavy on cost accounting, the CA is great for audits and their training is mainly in this area, and the CGA makes a choice in the latter part of their education as to what are they would like to focus on; public practice, government, industry non-profit etc. Each of the three accounting designations (CGA, CMA, and CA) has received a charter from the Parliament of Canada. In other words, the accounting body has met the education, experience, bylaws, code of ethics, professional development and self-regulating criteria to the acceptance of the Government. So, yes any person can call themselves an “accountant” or “tax preparer,” but that does not mean they have the education or experience that you may require. They definitely do not have the backing of an organization that will support you, should things go wrong. It is always recommended that you use a designated accountant. When you are looking to find a professional to assist you with your business, make sure you know who and what you are getting.

Fir beetle awake and ravenous CANIM… from page B6

The trophy was recently enlarged by George Hausmann to provide room for future winners. Fresh veggies Astrid Roy says the Forest Grove Farmer ’s Market opened on May 19, with great interest by the community. Five local growers had plants and seed potatoes for sale. The market will continue each Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the community hall parking lot. For more information, phone Astrid at 250397-4103. Devil beetle Wo o d - c u t t e r s beware the Douglasfir bark beetle has emerged from its

winter sleep and is now chewing into fresh wood wherever it can be found. I saw a load of dry pine last week with a few pieces of green Douglas-fir in it. The fir came from an uprooted tree that had been thrown in the winter by a falling pine. A single piece eight inches in diameter had collected 20 beetles, and it’s not a good bug to seed your property and area with.

Howard Lake Fishing Derby

Post a Report or Picture for Your Favourite Lake be lots of prizes for kids. For more information, contact Henry at 250-397-2954.


oward Lake is a popular recreation lake and offers anglers some great fishing. On Saturday, June 9, 2012, anglers will have a spe-

cial reason to spend a day at the lake. The Forest Grove Rod and Gun Club is holding their second annual Fishing Derby on Howard Lake. Registration will take place from 8:00 to 12:00, and fishing starts at 9:00. Last weigh-in is 3:00 p.m.

Surface Area • 167 Hectares (412 Acres) Maximum Depth • 35.7 metres (117 feet) Elevation (ASL) • 943 metres (3,094 feet) Survey Date • October, 1964 Contour Units • Feet

The derby is an important fundraiser for the Forest Grove Rod and Gun Club. Half of the proceeds will go back to the club, and the other half will go towards prizes for first, second and third place winners -- all the more reason to tell your friends and bring out as many people as possible! Registration is $10 for adults, and children 16 and under are free.

Howard Lake is a fabulous lake for fishing with chironomids. The best time for this is between mid May and early June, however, chironomid activity can last right through to early fall. Try fishing through the narrows, as the water depth and sediment is ideal habitat for chironomids. A good colour to try is black with red ribs. Light green is a good colour to try if black and brown patterns aren’t working. Popular lures are Lyman Lures, and #2 sized Kwikfish in a #80 or #87 colour. NOTE:

Ask an Expert: How do I stop mould from growing on my deck? In order to prevent the growth of mould you need to keep the deck as dry as possible, and remove any food sources by sweeping or washing. Here is a checklist of mould-preventive steps: • Gap the decking properly (minimum 1/8’) for drainage. • Assure that the gutters do not discharge onto the deck. • Check that gutters are not backed up and overflowing onto deck. • Dryer vent does not discharge directly onto or around deck. • Pitch the deck properly away from the house for drainage (minimum 1/8” in 8’). • Avoid the use of bark mulch around, on or under the deck (bark mulch is typically heavily laden with mildew spores). • Avoid the use of lawn or plant fertilizer on the deck (such as overspray from lawn fertilizer or Miracle-Gro from potted plants). • Sweep the deck every week, especially when pollen is heavy (spring and late summer).

70 MILE VIC POPIEL 250-456-2321

Please contact past residents to let them know about this event. More details will be available as they are confirmed. Many volunteers will be needed, so if you can spare some time to help, please contact Miriam at 250-456-7531 or Vic at 250-456-2321. Yard sale The South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department yard sale attracted a big crowd and was very successful. There were a lot of good items available, and I spent my time going through books and videos. Poker tournament The 70 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department held a poker tournament on May 12. There were 25 players and the results were: first, Joanne Sam; second, Lindsay Moore; third, Elaine Pattie; fourth, Dave MacDonald; fifth, Ken Freed; and sixth, Betty Westerager. The next tournament will be held June 9 at the 70 Mile Community Hall. Doors open at 11 a.m. and play starts at 1 p.m. To register, call


A bird’s-eye view… Ospreys are quite active right now with nests being filled with new babies. While the partner was out gathering food, this osprey was on the lookout for predators.


Public hearing A joint public hearing, involving the Cariboo Regional District and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, will be held at Seventy Mile Access Centre on June 9 at 1 p.m. The meeting will address the proposed text amendment to Section 12.2 of the Green Lake and Area Official Community Plan. The revised wording is “12.2 Engagement with First Nations will take into consideration First Nation guidelines and the Province’s: First Nations Engagement on Local Government Statutory Approvals Guide (INTERIM).” Fishing Derby There will be a fishing derby at Watch Lake and Green Lake on June 2-3. Posters have been displayed around 70 Mile House and Green Lake. SMAC Seventy Mile Access Centre will hold a general meeting on June 13 at 10 a.m. at the centre. Everyone is welcome.
