Town applies for $5.5 M in grants Cache Creek Council is once again looking for road reconstruction funding for four of its residential streets. The cost is estimated at $4.5 million. At its May 28 meeting, Council agreed to apply for UBCM Capital Projects funding under the Gas Tax Agreement Strategic Priorities Fund to finance the design and reconstruction. The Village can only submit two applications for capital funding. If successful, the grants will contribute up to 100 per cent of the project cost. Council applied for funding under a different program in 2008 but the application was turned down. Council’s motion originally included only SunValley Cres., Parke Rd. and Maclean Cres. at a cost of $2.662,369, but Old Cariboo Rd. was added before Council voted, bringing the total to $4,452,258. The road reconstruction includes replacement of water services and storm sewers where required, and installation of pavement, curb, gutter and sidewalks. The second application is for $928,500 for the “design and construction of walking and bicycling trails and trail ameneties that support non-vehicular modes of transportation that will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” The projects are part of the Village’s Parks, Recreation and Trails Master Plan which was adopted in principle earlier in the meeting, with a revised budget. Implementation of the plan was listed as a Long Term Goal in the Strategic Plan presented by Council in January. The grant, if the application is successful, will design and build the trail system outlined in the Master Plan, which involves crossing the highway and building a pedestrian bridge over the river at a cost of roughly $30,000 to design and $160,000 to build. “Over $3 million worth of projects,” noted Mayor John Ranta as Council discussed adopting the Master Plan. “I have a hesitation to adopt a plan that has $3 million in projects [without having the funding to back it up]. I wonder how on earth that will happen, and doubt that it will.” “Only if we have 100 per cent grants,” said Coun. Wyatt McMurray. “I had the same doubts too. I agree - I hate passing global plans without knowing we have the money. Every once in a while they come back to bite you.”

Teamwork catches driver May 31 at 5 pm police received a report of a possible impaired driver westbound on Hwy 1. The vehicle was not located, but the complainant provided a description and a license plate which was forwarded to Lillooet RCMP because the owner was registered with a Lillooet address. The vehicle was located by Lillooet RCMP but the driver was sober.

Truck tanks stolen June 1 police received a complaint that two large gas tanks had been stolen from Chanorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Towing in Cache Creek some me the night before.

contact RCMP at 453-2216.

Man tossed from car June 2 at 11:30 am police attended Husky to investigate a possible assault after a 29 year old Savona man showed up at the truck stop covered in blood, possibly with head injuries. He indicated at that time that he had been thrown out of a car on the highway. He was taken to Kamloops hospital for treatment. The following day he told police that he had not been tossed out of a car and refused to provide any further information.

Armed robber June 2 at 2:30 am RCMP were called to an armed robbery at the Chevron station in Cache Creek where a lone man wearing a garbage bag over his head and upper body produced a black-coloured handgun and demanded money from the clerk. He left when the clerk told him there was no money in the till, on foot and walking towards the north. He was described at 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;8â&#x20AC;? and heavyset, possibly 200 pounds or more. Under the garbage bag he wore a dark coloured shirt with white pin stripes, blue jeans and darkcoloured skateboard shoes with white soles. Anyone with information about the suspect or other aspects of the attempted robbery are asked to phone

RCMP at 453-2216 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

Bus accident June 2 at 11:25 pm police received a report that the shuttle bus chartered for the weekend HOG Run drove off the road on Hwy 97 in Cache Creek, blocking the southbound lane for a short time until it was towed away. No one was injured and there were no charges.

Waving a big knife June 3 at 2:30 am police were notified of a knifewielding man on the Ashcroft Bridge. Police located the 26 year old Ashcroft man and arrested him for possession of a weapon. Police learned that the man had recently purchased the collectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s item and was â&#x20AC;&#x153;playingâ&#x20AC;? with it, thinking no one was around to see. Alcohol may have been a factor. The man was warned about displaying a weapon in public. No charges were laid.

Arrest warrant issued June 3 an arrest warrant was issued for Kelly Sulin, 45, and Keith Kathrein, 45, of the Cache Creek area for breach of bail conditions.

The pair are under conditions relating to an investigation by the SPCA into a cat hoarding incident on the Sundance Ranch property back in January when SPCA and RCMP rescued over 40 cats from an out building. Police are attempting to locate Sulin and Kathrein, but the two are welcome to turn themselves in to the Ashcroft Detachment.

Serving time June 5 David Lloyd Garcia, 41, was convicted in Supreme Court, Kamloops, for possession of child pornography and sentenced to 90 days in jail, to be served intermittently at the Ashcroft RCMP Detachment. This is in addition to three months already spent in custody. In addition to the jail time, Garcia will be on probation for three years. He was arrested in December 2010.

Impaired by drugs June 6 at 4:30 pm a Traffic Services office stopped a northbound 2002 Ford F150 on Hwy 1 by the Red Hills rest stop after receiving a complaint of a possible impaired driver. The 48 year old Prince George driver was issued a 24 hour suspension for being impaired by prescription drugs and her vehicle was impounded for the same amount of time.

Pool gets rough start to the season CACHE CREEK Council Briefs

From the Cache Creek Council meeting on May 28. Roll Call: Mayor John Ranta and councillors Lisa Dafoe, Herb Hofer, Wyatt McMurray and Darrell Rawcliffe.

Infrastructure Planning Grants TheVillage will submit funding applications to the Ministry of Community & Rural Development under its Infrastructure Planning Grant Program for funding for a Water System Leak Detection Study, a Well Protection Plan study, and for Sewage Treatment Plant Main Lift Station design ($32,000). “It gives us a ‘shovel ready’ design,” said Coun. Wyatt McMurray. “It may just sit on the shelf, but it’s a very important piece of information to have.”

Swimming Pool Coun. Darrell Rawcliffe reported that the swimming pool was closed after having a problem with chlorine injection and that a new chlorine injection system has been installed. He said the new system didn’t seem to be working

and the pool staff were adding chlorine. But that wasn’t bringing the chlorine count up, either. Staff later realized that the chlorine in the container they were using had evaporated. They replaced it with a fresh container, but by then the water in the pool was registering bacterial counts and Interior Health required the Village to keep the pool closed to the public until the chlorine took care of the bacteria. The pool was open again by the end of the week.

Next Meeting June 11 at 7 pm in the Village Office. The Village’s Annual Report will be presented at this time, and members of the public are welcome to ask questions about it.

Masons gather to take part in executive installation Officers for 2012-14 in the Ashcroft Zarthan Lodge No. 105 of Freemasonry were installed in the St. Alban’s Church on Saturday afternoon, June 2, with 54 District Masons participating in the ceremony which was followed by a banquet that included ladies and guests. (Front, L-R): Dave Costain, Gerry McRae, Fred Dewick and Denis Carriere. (Back, L-R): Noel Murray, Roy Martin, Ken Platz, Albert Gullason, John Douglas, Jacques Levesque, George Sherlock and Brian Blake.

16 Mile undertakes costly rezoning for Hall The Annual General Meeting of the 16 Mile Community Society was held June 4 in the comfort of the meeting room at the Historic Hat Creek Ranch. The usual business was covered: The Treasurer’s Report showed a healthy bank account due to over $1,600 donated to the Society in memory of Don

Spooner who passed away Jan. 20. There was a great deal of discussion about the problem we are having with rezoning the community lot. The TNRD said it is presently zoned Residential and will have to be rezoned for Community use. This means we have to pay an engineer to check the prop-

Local cadets move up through the ranks 347 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Avenger held its ninth Annual Ceremonial Review on May 27 in the Ashcroft Secondary School gymnasium. Family and friends attended the two-hour ceremony in which cadets were awarded special citations and promotions. Adam Newman was promoted to Chief Petty Officer 1st Class and received his Sixth Year PIPs.

Shaun McKenna and Gabrielle Johannsson were promoted to Petty Officer 1st Class. Brandon Douglas and Ian Curran were promoted to Petty Officer 2nd Class. Cody Lambert and Ian Host were promoted to Master Seaman. Griffin Aie, Jerico Hewitt and Jared Thompson-Fisher were promoted to Leading Seaman.

Travis Mayhew and Tyson Mayhew were promoted to Able Seaman. CPO1 Newman, A was awarded the Lord Strathcona Medal by Lt(N) Curran. PO1 Johannsson, G was awarded the Royal Canadian Legion Medal of Excellence by RCL Branch 113 member Fran Clark.

erty and report to Interior Health as to the suitability for water and septic. We are gambling that this large expense will pay off, and allow us to qualify for a government grant to cover the cost of drilling a well. We are presently filling our water trucks for the fire fighting equipment from Arlene Lowe’s irrigation well. We really need to have our own water supply. Because we are only part way through this maze of Bureaucracy and Red Tape, the current executive agreed to carry on: President Al Midgley, vice president Stan Oakes, secretary Louise Oakes and Treasurer Lesley Joslin. There will be a Director’s meeting as soon as the engineer’s report is complete. There will be another General Meeting when the mining company, Hunter Dickenson, has news for us on their exploration plans for our area. Louise Oakes

Hey buddy, got a smoke... show? I have to say it - I just don’t get it. This is the 11th Graffiti Days I’ve attended. It’s still as awesome as ever. I love the cars. I love the little extras that people do to them - the beautiful paint jobs, the detailing, the little Betty Boop dashboard ornaments, the fuzzy dice... And I love the people who are drawn to these wonderful old cars. It’s a fun weekend and just about everyone is in a great mood. Even if the rain clouds feel like they’re hovering six inches away from your head. There’s something about those rock ‘n roll tunes from the 1950s. My hometown, Windsor, was #1 Cartown, Canada when I was growing up. Home of the Chrysler assembly plant, a Ford plant and I think there was some GM there at one time, too. I remember the company brought it some of its old cars for a show. They were in prime mint condition. They lined them up in the assembly plant and let the public have a look. What I don’t get is... the smoke show. I don’t get why it’s so darn popular. People sit in those seats for a couple of hours and breathe in vapourized rubber and exhaust. And they’re ridiculously happy! I’ve got nothing against people being happy. But I ended up leaving Windsor because of that smoke. Between Windsor and Detroit, there was just way too much pollution from the cars, trucks and factories. I needed somewhere where I could breath. Isn’t that one of the best things about where we live? If I wanted to suck in exhaust and rubber all day, I could sit on a bus bench in downtown Kamloops. Every time I take pictures at the smoke show, I go home smelling absolutely disgusting. The clothes are easy to to clean, but my hair, my skin takes a bit more scrubbing. And yet, perfectly sane people who I know, really get off on that smoke show. I just don’t get it. And I’m thinking that I probably never will. But, we all have our odd little past times and hobbies.

Kudos to Ashcroft for burning ban To the Village Council: I just wanted to let you know how delighted I was to read that you have taken action so quickly regarding the backyard burning ban. Many Ashcroft lungs will be breathing deeply next Spring. Now if we could only get the train whistles to be quiet. The trains will continue to go through our village but maybe a little more quietly. Transport Canada has told me that many communities across the nation have implemented a train whistle ban. There is a process and he urged me not to become discouraged. We have to want this and make it a priority. Just think how many less grumpy people there would be in Ashcroft because we are enjoying a full night’s sleep. I think of the little boy in kindergarten who told me as we were reading a book about trains how the whistles wake him all the time. I am sure he and I are not the only ones. Research is con-

A new reason for reducing ER hours more RE: “Reduction in ER Hours Proposed.” Dear Editor I am wondering if anyone else is as confused as I am by the story in last week’s Journal informing us that our hospital does not qualify for funding to assist in keeping the ER open more hours to serve our area. Did you all go huh? when you read the quote attributed to Community Director Bryan Redford telling us “The issue is around posted hours. That is real-

ly THE issue – what are the posted hours as it relates to this process (of applying for the grant).” What was he talking about? Why did no one call him on that statement? The story goes on to explain: REEF is a quarterly grant that can be used by physicians to attract locums, update ER equipment etc. but the ER must remain open during its posted hours. Ashcroft’s posted hours are 24 hours, seven days a week? First of all, posted by whom? If we are posted for 24/7, why aren’t we open for 24/7. Shouldn’t IHA be held responsible to see that we are open 24 hours if we are so posted? And then further confusion comes when the news story goes on to inform us there is no grant for ER’s with closures??? But isn’t that what the grant is all about, to help find ways to keep the ER open 24/7? The reasons for my confusion is that in reading all

through the document outlining the purpose of REEF, the program objectives, the program description and the eligibility requirements I did not see anything about “posted hours” as a disqualification and I’m afraid I have to believe its a made up excuse for not getting the job done! In quoting from the opening statement on the purpose for the REEF: “This program is intended to encourage the provision of reliable public access to emergency services in health authority designated emergency departments in rural British Columbia served by fee-for-service physicians.” Then I go on to read, “REEF Program Objectives are: To strengthen stability of public access to hospital Emergency Department (ED) services in rural communities. To increase ED capacity, if required, by increasing the number of health care service providers supporting the hospital ED when possible. To stabilize public access to hosSee LETTERS on p. 6

Prime Minister sends Democracy to Back of the Bus Time honoured values held close to the hearts of all Canadians are being held hostage in Ottawa under the guise of an Omnibus Budget Bill, Bill C38. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget its name. This bill could forever change the landscape of our great country should the juggernaut of an unrelenting Conservative majority have its way in the next couple of weeks. Bill C38 is anything but a budget bill. The Harper political power brokers have put more parts into this bill than a jumbo LEGO set. This clumsy, confusing 452 page bill rewrites 70 laws, ranging from old age security, employment insurance, immigration... even repealing the age old Fisheries Act and replacing it with a mere shell of its former self. Is it all right to shove due

diligence and democracy to the back of the bus in favour of partisan politics with little regard for your constituency? Apparently so. When Kootenay-Columbia Conservative David Wilks recently shared his concerns about the economic-driven, overloaded Bill C-38 with his constituency, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for word to reach Ottawa. Shortly thereafter his website clearly stated: â&#x20AC;?I wish to clarify my position with regard to Bill C-38... I support this bill, and the jobs and growth measures that it will bring Canadians.â&#x20AC;? Holy Flip Flop, Batman. Have we come to a point in Canada where Democracy will have a hard time finding the front of the bus any time soon...if at all? If the constituency is no longer represented by whom they elected, no longer has a

champion to fight their battles, no longer can count on the leaders to bring their message to Ottawa... then no longer can we call ourselves a true Democracy. For Mr. Wilks to have chosen to depart the moral high ground by plunging to the murky depths of partisan politics clearly illustrates that short term political life takes precedent over all else. We need to send a message. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the way Democracy does business. When election time comes we need to remember Bill C-38. We need to remember David Wilks. We need to send a message: we need to send Mr. Wilks to the unemployment line... in the great name of Democracy. Steven Rice TNRD Director Blue Sky Country

Chris Buck Band down at The Riv Check out some live music down at the The Riv on June 15 starting at 8 pm. The Chris Buck Band will be entertain-

ing the rodeo crowds all night long. The band is known for their Reggae/Country style and their energetic stage presence. They are reported to be a talented group of guys in their mid-20s - Chris Buck, Seamus Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill, Torben Brown, Phil Bell, and Jesse Griffith. One of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;highlights of the Merritt Mountain Music Fest last summer, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become one of the busiest country bands on the west coast. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played every major

country festival and venue in British Columbia and many other parts of Canada. Their first song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okayâ&#x20AC;? was played on over 38 stations across Canada and their follow-up, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paradise,â&#x20AC;? was broadcast on 40 stations during its first two weeks. The boys are excited to release their first album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buck Nakedâ&#x20AC;? early this year and visiting Nashville in the near future. For more info call The Riv at (250) 453-9124.

every reader that completes the program will receive a special award. Regular reading during the summer helps kids maintain or even improve theirreading and literacy skills and studies show that voluntary reading is the No. 1 factor in establishing good reading habits. Summer Reading Club makes reading fun and library staff can help kids find just the right book or magazine from among a wide variety of library materials. Last year more than 2,300 children across the TNRD participated in the Summer Reading Club. Children can start registering for the Summer Reading Club on the following dates: - Saturday, June 23, at the Logan Lake Library. - Tuesday, June 26, at the Ashcroft Library, Clinton Library and Savona Library. - Wednesday, June 27, at the Lytton Library. - Tuesday, July 3, at the Cache Creek Library.

The benches we donated to the Village of Ashcroft by the Second Time Around store are now in place, in front of the Safety Mart and across the street. The number of applications for grants has increased as well as the amounts being requested, so we need to increase our donations to accommodate them. Please, if you are cleaning out your house, have leftovers from a garage sale, an estate, or have purchased new furniture and are tossing out your old useable furniture, remember us. All the money we raise goes back into the community to non-profit groups. Everyone in town has benefited one way or another from the store - whether it is from a sporting event, musical event, rodeo, fall fair, or just a place to sit and rest. We are open Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 am to 3 pm. From July 4 to Sept. 4, we will be open on Wednesdays only to allow our volunteers time to enjoy the wonderful summers we have. For further information, please call Val at 457-9337 or Anne at 457-9781. Val Martin

B.C. reaches four year deal with doctors by Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government has reached a tentative agreement for a four-year contract with the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10,000 family doctors and specialists. The government released few details of the agreement, which must be ratified by members of the B.C. Medical Association in a vote to be completed by the end of July. The BCMA board is recommending acceptance. Health Minister Mike de Jong said the

tentative deal represents a 1.5 per cent increase in the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall budget for doctor fees over the first two years. That translates to an additional $45 million in each year. The proposed agreement doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specify an increase for years three and four, but rather commits the government and the BCMA to negotiate that amount later. The health ministry promises that the new deal will improve patient access to family doctors, including in rural areas,

pleaded on our last trip to the store. “You wait in the car and I’ll get everything by myself.” I realize she’s a capable, independent young lady, but really? She’s only eight. “You can do the shopping,” I agreed, handing her the short list of things we needed. “I’ll just hang out in the magazine aisle until you’re ready to pay.” Resisting any help at all, she finally agreed that she would come and get me when she was done. So off she went on her own to tackle the list. She was excited that people would see her shopping alone and perhaps mistake her for a very small grown-up. About 20 minutes later she was back with all the items crossed off and her little buggy full. Yet it wasn’t enough that she wanted to play the part of Mommy; she wanted to play cashier too. “Oh no,” I

reminded of how much of this kind of thing I wanted to do when I was younger and how I yearned to one day be doing them for real. “Enjoy being a kid,” my parents would tell me. “It doesn’t last long and being a grownup isn’t as easy as you think.” It sure looked easy to me. They got to go to sleep when they wanted, eat whatever their hearts desired and make every single decision, while my little brother and I had to play by their rules. I couldn’t wait to grow up and be the bo=ss. Knowing now what my parents were talking about, I’m also telling my children to enjoy being a kid because it really doesn’t last long. With summer holidays on

the horizon my children aren’t asking to do all the fun things I associate with being a child; they both want to get a job. “I want to work in a restaurant or babysit,” my 11 year old son said recently. “Me too!” agreed Daisy. A little young for all that, I made up a list of extra jobs for them to do around the house so they could earn their own money and I could have some more help. “Driving a car must be so much fun,” Daisy said on our way home from the store. “I can’t wait ‘til I drive.” Maybe in another eight years, baby girl. For now, just stick with the shopping cart and your bicycle and enjoy being a kid. Lori Welbourne is a syndicated columnist. You can watch her videos and read her columns at LoriWelbourne.com

Tragically, every year in BC countless dogs suffer and die after being thrown from the back of pickup trucks. Consequently, your pet should never ride unrestrained in the back or body of any vehicle. There are three simple options: 1. Put the dog in the vehicle with you. Use a crate or dog seatbelt as a restraint, or 2. Secure your dog in a kennel fastened to the centre of the truck, or 3. Secure your dog with a harness and short-tether leash to ensure safety from strangulation and death. For more information visit www.spca.bc.ca

Eleven ladies answered the roll call at our June 5 United Church Women meeting. President Lynn Lancaster welcomed everyone and led us in the Devotional, taken from the book, Dear Lord They Want Me to Give a Devotional by John Shroeder and Shane Goth. The topic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beginningâ&#x20AC;?was about a fellow who was impatient and built a structure without a proper foundation. Over time, the structure crumpled and fell to pieces. Everything we build should have a good foundation, be it a building or our philosophies in life. The good foundation is prayer. Lynn closed the devotion with a prayer. On June 3 our U.C.W. led the worship for church and everything went well and from the comments we noted it was well received. We were celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.C.W. A Bake Sale was discussed and we decided to wait until September to plan for one. A few pieces of correspondence were dealt with and a review was made of the BC Conference U.C.W. meeting.
