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€™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€™8â€? 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€™s item and was â€œplayingâ€? 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.

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-

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
