Victims survive horrifying crash Carole Rooney Free Press

A plane crash in 100 Mile House on June 9 left its three occupants and several people on the ground lucky to be alive. The Cessna 172 hit a downdraft just moments after takeoff around 3:45 p.m. and clipped secondary power lines before crossing Highway 97, smashing through the Blue Sky Restaurant sign and losing a wing. 100 Mile House FireRescue chief Darrell Blades says the inverted plane then crashed onto the parking lot of the restaurant and skidded across the asphalt into the rear, brick wall of TW Tanning tail-first. It also impacted a small pickup truck parked there. “There were three occupants, the pilot and a male and a female passenger, and they all went to hospital and were all released within a couple of hours. It was all minor injuries.” Upon arrival, he adds, his crew found emergency personnel already attending to the occupants, but remained on site to ensure a fire did not break out.

A plane crashed into a building behind the Blue Sky Restaurant on June 9, shocking witnesses and stopping traffic. The three occupants received minor injuries, after the small aircraft hit several obstacles that likely slowed it down. 100 Mile House RCMP Sgt. Don Mclean says police maintained the crash site until authorization was received from the Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the cause, to have

the plane removed. Passengers Greg Rector and his wife, Denise Britton, were en route to Silvertip Lodge on Quesnel Lake with pilot John Baker, one of the principals at the lodge,

Rector says. “We were taking off [east] toward town and it was all good. I’ve been in lots of small planes, and everything felt fine and we were above the power lines.

“Then all of a sudden the plane dropped because of the downdraft and all I saw was that power line.” The line was across the middle of the windshield, he explains, when Baker

immediately dropped the plane below it. “It was instant. I was still processing ‘power line’ [in my mind] when he did that. See CRASH… page A5

Minister Chong’s comments irk Mayor Campsall Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong recently sent an editorial to provincial media, stating municipal governments should “turn their minds toward cutting costs,” as the higher government levels do.

District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall said his municipal office costs are lower than the standard elsewhere in British Columbia. Chong stated governments need to work together to re-evaluate

the potential for shared services and identify best practices to build infrastructure and maintain stability and jobs, “rather than just fight for a bigger piece of the pie.” The province’s new office of the Auditor

General for Local Government is one way, Chong explained, the ministry is working towards accomplishing these goals. However, Campsall said the auditor general wouldn’t to help build infrastructure or maintain

economic stability. “I disagree with that comment. It’s yet to be proven… that’s a dream that they’ve got, but it’s completely unknown whether it’s going to do anything. See CHONG… page A3

Cessna 172 crash chills witnesses ENTERTAINMENT Carole Rooney Free Press

Witnesses to a June 9 plane crash in 100 Mile House are saying a series of fortunate events kept things from turning tragic. The three occupants of the Cessna 172 are lucky to be alive thanks to power lines and a sign that allowed the plane to crash with less force than it otherwise might have. Several people on the ground nearby were missed and the few cars in the vicinity were positioned so that the aircraft had an empty space to skid through. Some witnesses say they watched as the Cessna 172 clipped secondary power lines after takeoff around 3:45 p.m., then smash through the Blue Sky Restaurant sign before crash landing in the back lane. Employee Jackie McDonald says she had just walked out the front door of the restaurant when she saw the plane hit the wires. “When it hit the sign it was so loud… louder even than when it hit that back wall.” She ran inside to call 9-1-1 and then raced over to the plane where a crowd of about 20 people was already trying to help,

A Cessna 172 that crashed just moments after takeoff on June 9 smashed off its starboard wing on the Blue Sky Restaurant sign, scattering debris and damaging three parked vehicles. McDonald explains. The pilot climbed out of the cockpit on his own, with his face bleeding but still talking, she says, adding her employer fetched a chair so the injured man could sit down. Then police, fire department and ambulance personnel all arrived within minutes, she adds. Noting the whole event was pretty scary, McDonald says she could almost not believe what she was seeing. “The way everything

to fear for her own safety. It was also fortunate the power lines didn’t land in the path of traffic, she says, adding BC Hydro was on scene “really quick” to fix the downed wires.

Jay Matlock was working inside the South Cariboo Visitor Centre when the crash occurred, and also saw it happen. “I could see it out the front window as it flew through the top of the trees on the [marsh] path there, and then it hit the lower set of power lines.” The whole incident happened in mere seconds, Matlock says, and then he rushed across to see if he could help.

CHONG… from page A1 “How can [Chong] make a comment like that when she’s not even giving them parameters? How can you judge something, how can you say something’s good or bad, if there’s no clear parameters?” Nothing about the new auditor general’s office impresses him, the new North Central Local Government Association president said, adding he’s not alone in this viewpoint. “Pretty well every municipality and every regional district thinks it’s a waste of time.” Chong noted B.C. has held its public service employees to zero wage increases during the past two years, while the federal government is reducing its civil service by 19,000 positions. She explained local governments have increased compensation to

We started going sideways and all I saw was the Blue Sky sign.” Rector notes his feelings during those few moments of the crash alternated from fear to hope. “It was kind of like a roller-coaster. We went through the wire and I thought: ‘right on, we made it.’ And then we got caught, and the sign was there, and I knew there was no way to avoid that. “Then when the wing came off, the next thing ... was hitting the concrete, then the windshield breaking and coming back.

May: Harper has no mandate

PLANE… from page A3 Matlock adds he spoke with several people who were standing near the crash, including one man who is also fortunate to be alive. “He said he was very close to the sign and he watched the whole thing when it happened. He was right there.” The plane flipped over and hit the wall tailfirst, which Matlock notes likely also helped the occupants to escape with their lives. “The way [the pilot] crashed into everything slowed him down enough to land safely. It was a very miraculous set of events.” Several cars “came screeching to a stop” on the highway, he says, when the drivers saw the plane nearly missing traffic. He adds the results would have been much worse if the plane was a couple of feet lower and there was a camper or a semi-trailer passing right then, or if someone was in the parking lot. “The Blue Sky parking lot is very busy more often than not, and this time there was only about two cars in it.” If the path of the plane was 15 feet further south, Matlock says it could have gone right into the restaurant where McDonald was standing.

Top 10 invasive plants in the South Cariboo This is the first in a series highlighting the most common invasive plants found in the South Cariboo. Readers will learn how to identify them, with information and photos provided by the Cariboo Regional District. Later in the series, readers will learn how to effectively remove and dispose of invasive plants. The Invasive Plant

Council of British Columbia classifies an “invasive plant” as any alien plant species that has the potential to pose undesirable or detrimental impacts on humans, animals or ecosystems. These alien invaders are often mistaken for wildflowers because of their rapid spread through many urban landscapes, agricultural lands and

ecosystems. Mountain Bluet No. 10 Mountain Bluet, also known as Bachelors Button or Perennial Cornflower, is on the watch list for being a new invasive species in the Cariboo. A native of Europe, this perennial ornamental can grow up to 18 inches tall and has silvery-green

Cariboo Regional District photo

Mountain Bluet woolly foliage and blue lace cap flowers. It flowers from

May to August, and a single plant can live up to 15 years in ideal conditions. This plant species can be very invasive for many reasons, including its tolerance of many different environments and the fact it spreads by both rhizome roots and seed. For more information visit www.cccipc. ca/cariboo-chilcotin/ priority-species.

Aquatic invaders field day offered by CCCIPC Anyone interested in learning more about invasive aquatic species, or the committee that helps control their spread, has an opportunity to do so in the South Cariboo. The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Invasive Plant Committee (CCCIPC) is inviting the public to join them in a free field day, including a tour, lunch and annual general meeting, June 20. CCCIPC chair Emily Sontag says the tour bus will depart from the Save-OnFoods parking lot at 8:30 a.m. and return around 4 p.m. Lunch will be provided, along with refreshments and snacks throughout the day. The AGM will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at Eastwood Lake Restaurant, Sontag notes. “Aquatic invasive species are important in our work and recreation lives. Any one of your favourite fishing

or swimming holes could be at risk.” People who join the tour will learn to identify several invasive species, both plant and animal, and how to limit their introduction

hen Ida Chong, Community, Sport and Cultural Development minister, flogged a stinging editorial to newsrooms throughout the province on the eve of the inaugural Mayors Caucus in Penticton on May 16-18, she showed just how out of touch and arrogant the B.C. Liberal government has become. Everyone who has been paying attention to what is going on in the rural communities of the province knows the elected officials and staff of the municipal governments are very concerned about the future of small town British Columbia. They are worried about upgrading an aged and, in some cases, crumbling infrastructure. They are concerned about the reduction of the tax base because of job losses in the resource extraction industries and because young, working families are leaving to find work. They worry about finding ways to provide core services that will attract people to their communities. In fact, that is exactly what the Mayors Caucus was all about – to discuss the downloading of services from the federal to the provincial and, ultimately, to the municipal governments. They were looking for a united front to bring the upper levels of government to the table to discuss the problems and to remind them local governments are the front line for all Canadians. They would probably want them to know continued downward pressure is going to have a ripple affect up the ladder. Rather than offering to sit down with the provincial mayors to discuss the issues, minister Chong decided to represent the B.C. Liberal government with guns blazing. Her editorial suggested local governments follow the lead of upper governments and “turn their minds toward cutting costs.” Easy for Ms. Chong to say when her government has municipal governments to unload the pain onto. Obviously, it was an out-of-touch comment. Then she used the lightly veiled threat by saying the new Auditor General of Local Government is one way to achieve the cost-cutting goals. That would be arrogance. With Premier Christy Clark and her BC Liberal MLAs holding their caucus meeting at The Hills Health Ranch this week, maybe they should discuss Ms. Chong’s tactics or, perhaps, turn their minds to packing their bags.

Healthy forests for communities In the past two decades, British Columbians have witnessed two starkly different approaches to managing the province’s forest resources. In the 1990s, the provincial government (NDP) focused on forest stewardship with a series of initiatives emphasizing land-use planning, greater public involvement in forest management decisions and increased public investments in the forests. The next decade saw the pendulum swing sharply the other way. The government (B.C. Liberal) backed away from prescriptive policies, placed less emphasis on forest stewardship and more on short-term economics with reduced resourcing for long-term maintenance of the forest asset. There are those who complain the first approach was far too prescriptive and amounted to regulatory overkill, while critics of the latter say it amounted to government capitulating to entrenched business interests. Either way the critics have their points. If both approaches had or have their faults, where should we go from here? We must ensure the result will be healthy forests to lay the foundation for healthy, resilient (economically diverse) communities. Many Interior communities are

BILL BOURGEOIS

GUEST SHOT confronting a mounting “timber supply” crisis. The fact a shortage in commercially desirable trees nears is incontestable. However, does a recently unveiled response by the government make sense? It considers easing or eliminating various non-timbers, resource-based constraints on logging in an effort to soften the economic blow, but only to a relatively small extent according to a recent government staff analysis, and at what future cost? Could temporarily holding onto some jobs now by propping up unsustainable logging rates mean even greater environmental and economic pain in the years ahead? This, quite frankly, seems to me to place the cart before the horse. Rather than asking what we do now by way of a rearguard action to hold onto a diminished number of jobs by further eroding our forest asset and community economic diversification opportunities, we ought to be going back to fundamentals. How do we achieve healthy forests and healthy communities? A 10-year investment strategy

is required. Here are three areas to initially focus upon. First, we need government to clearly state a vision to show what healthy forests and healthy communities will look like, and guide effective legislation, regulations, policies, practices and investment choices. Second, we need, at this admittedly challenging time, to bring communities in a meaningful way to the table, so they can be directly involved in decisions regarding how local forest resources (not just timber for sawmills, but clean water and other important natural resources) are managed. Third, we need a commitment by government to provide stable funding to inventory what we have in our forests, for conducting important research that guides and informs good policy choices, and for ensuring everyone complies with the best forest practices. We can have healthy forests that achieve community and family health and increased provincial revenues to boot. The time to begin the process of achieving these is now. Bill Bourgeois, holds a PhD in forest soils, and has worked as a professional forester for 38 years in various capacities with the provincial government, forest companies and as a consultant.

E NTERTAINMENT Racing on Bridge Letters to the editor

CIDA budget cuts unjustifiable

Creek dangerous

To the editor: There’s been a lot of analysis in the media about the new federal budget, but what is missing is a real acknowledgement of the cuts to the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Everyone must share the burden is the justification, but the conse-

To the editor: I am writing to voice my concern with the use of motorized watercraft on Bridge Creek. On June 2, I witnessed a 20-foot jet boat with an older man and two children in it racing down Bridge Creek. When they had to turn around at the municipal flow structure, they had to really turn up the jets to get back up to Horse Lake. This caused a lot of siltation and disturbed the spawning fish and nesting birds along the way. It took over an hour for the creek to clear up because it was extremely silty. This should be illegal. The boat operator was an adult, and in my opinion, this set a really poor example for the children in the boat. Let’s go tear up the creek in a giant boat is the

message it sends. It does not matter about the fish or other wildlife along the way. This is not the only time I have witnessed this example of stupidity. I had my grandchildren on the creek and we were floating along peacefully when a Sea-Doo roared around the corner full speed and almost hit us. Bridge Creek is small with many blind corners, making it unsafe for any type of motorized watercraft. Use a canoe or kayak and enjoy the wildlife along the way. There is only a very short stretch of navigable water. Use your head; there are enough large bodies of water around to roar around on. George Ostoforoff 100 Mile House

McLeod must support troops for more than just photo-ops To the editor: Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo MP Cathy McLeod likes to say the federal Conservative government supports our troops. The facts say otherwise. The Conservatives are cutting post-traumatic stress and suicide prevention programs for soldiers returning from Afghanistan, even though suicide rates doubled last year. All told, the Tories are chopping over $200 million from Veterans Affairs, including cuts to The Last Post Fund, which helps low-income veterans get a proper burial. It took a six-year battle in our courts to shame them into not clawing back the pensions of our disabled veterans. They have also repeatedly been caught snooping through the personal medical records of veterans’ advocates to find embarrassing details that

can be used to intimidate them into silence. Harold Leduc, Denis Manuge, Sylvain Chartrand and Sean Bruyea have all suffered from this disgusting behaviour. Mrs. McLeod needs to learn that supporting our troops means giving them real respect. It means providing mental health support to cope with the horrors of war. It means refusing to nickel-and-dime veterans whose service has left them disabled. It means respecting the privacy of their medical records. We make a promise to our men and women in uniform that in exchange for their commitment and sacrifice, we will be there for them when they come home, to provide support to them and their families. Our veterans deserve better. Sean Casey Liberal Party Veterans Affairs critic

quences for these cuts are far, far greater than any other. It is unconscionable to deny a child a two cent vitamin A pill that could keep a girl from going blind. There can be no justification for withholding $20 worth of drugs that would save a mother of five from an agonizing death from TB.

coalition-busting BC Conservative Party led by John Cummins (who, by the way, voted NDP in the last provincial election)? It should be obvious that anyone who votes for Cummins and his faux-conservative party risks plunging the provincial economy into last place again under an NDP government. Let’s respect free enterprise solutions by voting for the only viable free enterprise solution — the B.C. Liberals.

There is no room for so-called “austerity” when millions of adolescent girls are forced out of school because there are no toilets for them. One can argue forever where cuts should happen and how, but there can never be any rational, ethical, or moral justification for one of the richest countries in the world claiming a lack of money when cutting help to the poorest. It’s like a Wall Street banker not giving to the United Way this year because the cost of operating his Rolls Royce fleet has gone up. The (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper government is counting that Canadians don’t give a damn. They think we only worry about our own backyard, and not the enormous suffering that will occur as a result of these cuts. Yet if we let this pass, Canadians will have become the global one per cent: pitiless and arrogant fat cats looking down on the world’s poor and flicking our cigar ashes in their faces.

Alex McAulay Chilliwack

Nathaniel Poole Victoria

Cummins will bust coalition approach To the editor: Federal Conservatives and conservatively oriented federal Liberals have a long and very successful tradition of coalition governing in British Columbia. This coalition approach built our province and made it what it was. B.C. has always proven to be an economic winner under this coalition approach, even during the global economic turmoil seen in recent years. Why, then, would anyone want to abandon such a successful coalition model by voting for the

Political double-speak underway To the editor: John van Dongen, the brandnew Conservative MLA from Abbotsford South, did not use political double-speak when giving his reasons for leaving the BC Liberal Party. He pointed his finger of recrimination directly at Christy Clark for her incompetent attempt to play the role of a provincial premier.

Meanwhile, Kevin Falcon and George Abbott are now musing aloud about not running in the next election. However, both are being calculatingly careful not to offend any Clark supporters. Their sudden disenchantment with politics seems opportunistic. Not long ago, they were running for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party. Unfortunately for them (and the

party), they ended up second and third respectively behind Clark. Both Falcon and Abbott are using political double-speak to send the same message to the Liberal backroom powerbrokers: Get rid of Clark and I’ll stay because I want to be the next premier of British Columbia. Lloyd Atkins Vernon

Choices available come voting time To the editor: It looks as though during the forthcoming provincial election in April 2013, we will have several choices of who to cast our votes for. The political parties, namely B.C. Liberals, NDP, Green and B.C. Conservatives, will all probably be supporting a candidate in the CaribooChilcotin constituency. Of interest is the announcement Gary Young will be seeking the MLA position as an Independent candidate. This will provide a breath of fresh air to the constituency. An MLA with Independent status will not be obliged to follow political party agendas or carry obligations to major

financial sponsors, such as big businesses or unions. Representation, as directed by the constituents and the ability to put forth issues without party hindrance, is the greatest asset of being Independent. If we review the representation that the Cariboo North constitu-

ency is receiving by Bob Simpson, we are witnessing Independent representation at its best. Should Gary match Bob’s representation, we will all benefit greatly. Gary has an extensive past history of community involvement, the majority being of a non-monetary

nature. He thinks in terms of decades ahead and what will be there for our children and grandchildren, not the next election and what “sounds good” to voters. Jack Hackett Gary Young’s campaign co-ordinator

Parents: help stop vandalism To the editor: I have lived at 108 Mile Ranch for 20 years and have had occasional acts of mischievous vandalism, but the past few weeks have gotten out of hand. Over a dozen lights have been taken from around my yard. It’s not the cost, but rather the fact people have been running through my yard and destroying other items in their path. It is usually between 10 p.m. and

midnight. Parents, where are you children and why are they walking around at night? This isn’t just on weekends, but during the week also. Pulling the lights out and leaving them on the lawn is one thing but taking them or destroying them is theft and not just a prank. Sue Pinkerton 108 Mile Ranch

One claim that has been studied and has shown a bit of promise is that its use can lower blood glucose levels when taken with high carbohydrate meals. The dose studied was 2 tablespoonfuls 2-3 times daily taken in a glass of water. There are so many home remedies out there. Some have merit while others have no real effect whatsoever.

There were bright and creative team costumes and participants completed many interesting activities.

YZ holds garage sale The Youth Zone in 100 Mile House is having a garage sale to raise funds on June 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. The fundraiser will help support the free drop-in facility for youth between the ages of 12 and 18. The funds raised from the garage sale will go directly to food costs, as the Youth Zone

provides free nutritious snacks on a daily basis to youth. Organizers would appreciate it if folks could contribute gently used items (no clothing), which can be dropped off at the Youth Zone Wednesday and Thursday, noon-1 p.m. and 3-6 p.m.; and Friday, from noon to 1 p.m. and 3-8 p.m.

Foreclosures – The Simplified Version

Many people think the law is “stacked against the little guy” – and many not so little guys wish that was true. The law of foreclosure is an interesting example. While it’s true that in most cases the little guy does lose his/ her house in a foreclosure, that’s a Ànancial problem – not a problem with the law. What is interesting about foreclosure is how many obstacles the legal system puts in the lender’s way before the borrower loses his/ her house. A foreclosure starts because a borrower has defaulted – usually by not paying the mortgage. Even then, the lender can’t take the borrower to Court until it has made a written demand for payment and given the borrower a couple of weeks to pay. If payment isn’t received at that point, the lender starts Court proceedings by Àling appropriate documents with the Court. Then, before the lender can take further steps, it must usually have the documents delivered by hand to the borrower – and give the borrower 3 weeks to Àle reply documents with the Court. After that, a notice of hearing is delivered setting the hearing for at least 8 business days later. Finally, there is the Àrst Court hearing. At the Àrst hearing, if the borrower has any equity in their property, the Court will usually give them 6 months (called the redemption period) to sell or re-mortgage the property. Only after these 6 months can the lender take over the property – and even then most lenders won’t take the property because if they take the property, the borrower is relieved of any obligation to pay out the loan. Thus, after the expiry of the redemption period, most lenders will seek to have the property sold – and the borrower will usually remain in the home until a sale is made. So how does all of the above help the little guy? If the lender tries to skip a step or makes errors in Court documents, the Court might simply throw out the lender’s case and the lender will have to start over again. Even if that doesn’t happen, it usually takes a minimum of 9 months (usually more) before the lender can force the borrower out of his/ her house. During those entire 9 or more months, the borrower can sell the house or Ànd a new lender and the foreclosure will be over.

Fourth Annual Fun Fly takes off June 23-24 Monika Paterson Free Press

Pilots of radiocontrolled aircraft from all over the province and the United States will make their way to the South Cariboo Regional Airport (108 Mile) for the Fourth Annual Fun Fly, hosted by the 100 Mile Model Flyers Club

Society on June 23-24 from 10 to 4 p.m. both days. Club secretary and flying instructor Miles Holte says the public will see many different winged fly-

ing machines going through their routines, including helicopters, First and Second World War aircraft, and jets. Last year, there were 40-plus participants who attended ranging in age from eight to more than 70 years, with many lev-

RACE… from page A14 The Fire House Diner team took first place. The team, including Cory Boyd, Patti Boyd, Trisha Edwards and Ty Kerr, left Lac la Hache in a mass start at 9 a.m. and arrived at the final location in 100 Mile House at 1:39 p.m. The Cheeky Chicks, including Hillary Copp, Terry Larum, Tina Majcher and Becky Pincott, finished in second place at 1:47 p.m. Organizer Jackie Belcham says she feels the event went well. Teams were having a lot of fun, and it went smoothly even though it was a bit cold and rainy. There were even a bit of friendly, playful banter and teasing

going on between two particular restaurant entries from the Red Rock Grill and the Firehouse Diner, adds Belcham. Each of the 17 participating teams paid a $200 entry fee and all of money goes to the hospice society. Belcham says society members appreciate the effort of all the participants, volunteers and the community members involved who helped put the event together. She adds organizers are looking forward to next year’s event, where they will continue to improve to make it bigger and better.

THIS FRIDAY… DAY… …

RCA not meeting this summer 108 RANCH REG BERRINGTON 250-791-9235 berringtonservices@shaw.ca

The exterior of the 108 Community Hall will be painted this summer with a new colour yet to be decided upon. 108 Mile Ranch Community Association (RCA) president Bev French has been busy delivering Welcome Packages to new residents of the 108. The board of directors will not be meeting in July and August, but are preparing many projects for the fall. 108 Lions The 108 Lions have a new executive for the 2012/13 season. They include past president Pete Tonkin, president Pam Hales, vice-president Janet Herrick, secretary Donna White, treasurer Denny Fahrentholz, and membership Don White. The directors are Les Cookman and Barry Porter. If you require more information about the 108 Lions Club, email 108lions@ gmail.com, or if inter-

ested in becoming a member, contact Lion Don White at 250791-7323. Summer is almost here, so if you require tables (three by eight feet), contact Lion Bill Hamilton at 250-791-6452. The Lions also provide bar service for all special occasions and are currently taking bookings for weddings and anniversary parties. Funds raised by the 108 Lions go back into the community for the benefit of numerous groups. CCLF news The Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship (CCLF) is holding Camp SumMore Fun Spy Camp every Tuesday from July 3 to Aug. 7. This camp is for children aged five to 12 and is free. It runs from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Rock (beside the church) 4930 Telqua Dr. Remember to pack a peanut-free lunch, and bring a change of clothes, sunscreen and a towel. For more information, contact Heidi or Catherine at 250-791-5532. Computer scams The scammers are at it again, as I received e-mail from one of them recently, advising me they were upgrading their e-mail

account system. They wanted my username, password, re-enter username, territory, and if they did not receive it, my account would be deleted. Stay away from these types of scamming. RC flying The 100 Mile Model Flyers Society is having a display of model aircraft, so

come and watch the members show off their piloting skills using radio-controlled airplanes and helicopters. The Fun Fly Air Show is June 23-24 at the South Cariboo Regional Airport (108 Mile) starting at 10 a.m. Admission is by cash donation with the funds going to the 100 Mile Food Bank Society. For more infor-

mation, contact Bill Hood at 250-397-2575, John Code at 250-3951219, Denis Doucette at 250-397-2125.

Financial Tip of the Week With Life insurance or mortgage insurance?

When you apply for a mortgage you will be asked to purchase life and disability coverage. Before Dan Rimell you say ‘yes’ consider purchasing Certified Financial Planner term life insurance from a licensed insurance broker. Some of the advantages include: - Naming your spouse as beneficiary rather than the bank - Premiums are often much lower - The death benefit is level rather than decreasing - Don’t have to requalify when you refinance Make sure your family is properly protected. Call today for more information.

T he Cariboo’s Calling

Growth of the Seventy Mile Access Centre By Vic Popiel When the 70 Mile Elementary School closed in 2000, there was a lot concern the building would be vandalized if it was left vacant. A group of area citizens, including Sally Watson, Rose Raphael, Linda Curson, Gail Moseley and the writer held a meeting to discuss what could be done. The result was the formation of the Seventy Mile Access Centre (SMAC) Society with an elected board, and the society was registered on June 29, 2001. The building was then leased from the School District 27 and planning began. The school library was left in the building, so the first idea was to expand the library with book donations and make it available as a lending library. Much of the gym equipment was left, and the children had fun playing with the balls and hockey sticks. Many fitness programs were planned for the gym, but most of them got minimal response. When winter set in, the board discovered three of the five furnaces did not work. Cameo Plumbing was called in to assess the situation and discovered that extensive repairs were required. Since the society did not have any money, an alternative solution was needed, resulting in baseboard heaters being installed in the used areas. When Jacquie Vesterinen, who had worked in thrift stores in Vancouver, joined the group, she suggested opening a thrift store. Because of her experience, she was given the job of getting it started in one of the classrooms. This turned out to be a very successful venture. It provided revenue to pay for the utili-

ties when the school district handed over full operations of the building to SMAC. A federal grant was obtained to purchase computers. This was part of the initiative to provide remote areas with access to the Internet. This proved popular with summer visitors who wanted to access their e-mail and to do Internet research. The gym was used for meetings and gatherings and eventually for federal and provincial elections. The library was relocated to the front room for easier access, and surplus books were sold. A new heating system was needed, and the solution was an outdoor wood heater with a boiler. The water was sent to the old furnaces and the fans that still worked circulated the heat. Volunteers were the key to keeping the centre going. A base of permanent volunteers

was established, but many more were needed, particularly in the thrift store. The SMAC thrift store was taking surplus items from Cedar Crest in 100 Mile House, and this resulted in piles of bags requiring sorting. Volunteers spent many hours at this task just to keep ahead of the next load to come. The thrift store expanded to two rooms, with furniture in the hallways. Book donations continued to grow and more room was needed to display the surplus books for sale. As the volume grew, another classroom was dedicated for just books. Another room was converted to a bingo hall, and bingo is held on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from September to May. SMAC became a recycling centre in 2007. Cardboard,

plastics, glass, paper and other items were collected, sorted and distributed to depots in 100 Mile House and Clinton. This ended when the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) set up recycling bins at the 70 Mile transfer station. For several years SMAC has distributed composting bins, which were provided by the TNRD. These have been very popular and have sold out each year. The exterior of the building was an eye sore. The paint on the siding was peeling and there were many spots of wood decay. The building still belongs to the school district, but in 2010, the executive decided to put some money into new siding for the front of the building. Tenders were put out and work began.

The old siding was stripped and new panels were installed. The material obtained proved to be enough to upgrade two sides of the building. New exterior signs are in process of being made and will be put up this year. Although many people in the area do not know about SMAC, it has been popular with those who do. It has provided clothing and household goods to people in need and is always ready to help residents with problems. SMAC sponsors the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program, which provides free tax preparation for lowincome people. Welcome to our summer feature, called The Cariboo Calling.

New records set at inter-school track meet Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Young athletes ran, jumped and tossed their way to ribbons and awards at the South End Inter-school Track and Field Meet, June 7. It was held at 100 Mile House Elementary School (OMH) with seven schools participating and the weather co-operating for the most part. The overall first-place trophy went to Mile 108 Elementary School (108) after point totals among all schools were adjusted according to their enrolment numbers. First-place winner among large schools was OHM, and Bridge Lake Elementary School was winner of the Small Schools first-place award. It was a big day for breaking records, including several long-standing ones. Aggregate winner in the 11-year-old boys division, Cameron Ardiel (108) crossed the finish line in the 100-metre sprint in 13.06 seconds, shaving off more than a second from a record of 14.20 seconds set in 1988. He also raised the bar in the high jump event, clearing 1.27 centimetres,

which was one centimetre higher than a record set in 1985. Ocea Gunn of Horse Lake Elementary School (HL), aggregate winner in the 12-year-old girls division, also set a couple of records. She set a new standard of 14.41 seconds in the 100-metre, bettering the previous record of 14.66 set in 2009. In the 200-metre, she smashed the 1988 record of 31.20 by nearly four seconds, crossing the line in 27.28. Caily Mellott (OMH) put some distance between her time of 13.31 in the 13-year-old girls 100-metre and that of 13.60 set in 1990. Mellott was also the aggregate winner in that age division. The other aggregate winners were Lauren Popadinac (HL), 10-year-old girls; Riley McLean (HL) 10-year-old boys; Sienna Monical (108), 11-year-old girls; Dylan McNeil (108), 12-year-old boys; and Aydin Barnbrook (OHM), 13-year-old boys. Host school vice-principal Maria Gust says everyone had a fantastic day at the track meet. “The students showed excellent sportsmanship and athletic ability.”

Men’s fastball teams prepping for the playoffs Going into the sixth and final inning Red Rock appeared to have a commanding 12-6, but Jake’s mounted a four-run rally making things interesting for the players who battled through the windy, wet and cold conditions.

Ken Alexander Free Press

Although they are holding down last place in the 100 Mile Fastball League, Jake’s Pub Old Buds showed their grit as they battled back against the first-place Red Rock Grill at Lumberman’s Park on June 7. Jason Armeneau went the distance in a losing cause, but recorded eight strikeouts and collected his squad’s first out-ofthe-park home run of the season. Red Rock chucker Pat Findlay recorded another victory and whiffed two opposing batters along the way. The Grillers scored three runs in the top of the first inning, capped off by a two-run home run by Matt Ounpuu. The Old Buds replied for one run on singles by Armeneau and Greg Lund who had a great night at the plate by hitting for a double and a triple in the 10-8 loss. However, the league’s top team brought two more runners across the

Red Rock went up 9-1 before Jake’s Pub mount-

ed a comeback with three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. However, Red Rock scored three more in the fifth and the Old Buds brought in two.

Shuswap wins two Shuswap picked up two important victories last week to climb out of last place, starting with a 9-0 shutout over Jake’s Pub on June 4. Antoine Sargent went the distance for Shuswap and registered seven Ks along the way. He also helped his own cause by hitting a single, double and a triple. Mark Boyce went yard and picked up two runs batted (RBIs) in. The lone highlight for Jake’s was a stellar double play in the third inning that was started by second baseman Steve Almond who grabbed a hard grounder, pivoted and made the perfect throw to Len Goin at first base for the first out. Goin then fired the ball to Gord Smith at third for the sec-

ond out in the blink of an eye. Shuswap doubled Sanford Two nights later Shuswap cruised to a 6-0 lead and it looked like it was going to be another shutout for them until the Sanford & Dillman Hornets scored three in the top of the sixth. Shuswap fireballer Robin Gilbert went the distance and had 10 Exeter strikeout victims shaking their heads as they walked back to the dugout. He also smashed two singles and scored three RBIs. Sanford’s Bob Collens also pitched well and recorded five Ks. Fit to be tied The June 5 showdown between Exeter Sporting Goods and the Lac la Hache Food Market was by far the most exciting of the week. The Bantams jumped out to a 3-1 in the first, but then trailed 7-3 in the second thanks to a fivehit outburst by Exeter. Exeter scored one in

the third but the Bantams brought two across the plate to narrow the gap to 8-5, and the young fellows scored their sixth run in the fourth inning and it was 8-6 going into the fifth, during which both teams scored a pair. With time running out on the clock, the Bantams scored the tying runs, and it went down as a 10-10 deadlock. Connor Edle went the distance for Exeter and Dylan Pinto was his catcher. Paul Carey pitched for the Bantams and Bryan Moorman was behind the plate. June 8 standings Red Rock is first in the league with 12 points on six wins and a loss. Exeter is second with a 4-1-1 record for nine points. Sanford is in third with a 4-3 record for eight points. Shuswap holds down fourth with six points on a 3-5 record. The Bantams are 2-1-4 for five points and fifth place. Jake`s Pub is sitting alone in the basement with 1-0-7 record.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth a call!

Arlene Jongbloets

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what a few words of encouragement can accomplish. Jaden Knight, nine, of Buffalo Creek Elementary School had never thrown a shot put before going to the BC Elementary School Provincial Track & Field Championships in Richmond as a competitor in May. This was also his first track meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A pretty fast runner,â&#x20AC;? Jaden says he was there to compete in the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 60-metre and 600-metre running events. However, his aunt Courtney Knight, previously from Forest Grove, thought he should give shot put a try. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Paralympic medalist in the pentathlon event, which includes shot put. The evening before the meet, Courtney gave her nephew a crash course on tossing the heavy metal ball. His first two attempts at the meet the next day werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so good, says Jaden, and then Courtney stepped in and gave him some good advice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the last throw, I put a ton of effort into it and I won a gold medal. I had the time of my life.â&#x20AC;? While he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about throwing a shot put, Jaden says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty strong from helping out on the family farm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I work out by moving big logs around and picking up hay bales.â&#x20AC;? That, and some determination mixed with a little coaching is all it took to succeed. His shiny medal is hanging up on the wall now, reminding Jaden of his great experience and providing inspiration for him to do it all over again next year.

The weekend event drew 85 shooters, with visitors coming from Clearwater, Kamloops, Langley, Williams Lake, Quesnel and McBride. Club secretary denise swift says the weather was OK, but generally it was great. Many of the archers camped on site, and on Saturday night, shared a chili and ribs dinner and social time around a communal campfire. “It was lots of fun. We’ll definitely be doing the shoot again next year.” The next major event for the Bighorn club is its annual traditional shoot at Cariboo Bonanza Resort, July 21-22.

Ladies persevere in soggy weather A small but passionate group of golfers participated in the total-putts-plusnet-score format at the 108 Ladies Day on June 5. Some thought gum boots might be needed, but the weather prevailed and the afternoon ladies managed to get in 18 holes, says club vice-captain Gloria Corno. The scoring was

done for first and second place only in all flights due to the smaller turnout.

First flight Annie McKave took first place and Julietta Morete, who also won the par pot, was second. Even the birds were seeking shelter, so the birdie pot was carried over.

South Cariboo Rowing Club (SCRC) members saw some encouraging results while competing at the Delta Deas Rowing Club 2012 Scholastic Regatta, May 26-27. It took place on Deas Slough and involved more than 300 high school athletes from southern British Columbia and the Cariboo. Jemma Van Osch and Jill Matlock won their heat in the junior A doubles and went on to finish in sixth place in

the final. This is their first season racing together as a doubles team and coach Jack Jenkins says he was very happy with the outcome. “It was fun to watch them win that first race.” Alex Lubbe, Kelowna Rowing Club member Catherine Slamka, J. Van Osch and her sister, Tyra Van Osch, teamed up to row in the junior A women’s quad event. They won their heat and rowed to fifth place in the final. Lubbe and Slamka also placed second in

their doubles event, but did not advance. “We’re seeing a little bit of progression in our program and they’re getting lots more experience. It’s good for the girls who will be going to the BC Summer Games.” The 2012 BC Summer Games take place in Surrey on July 19-22, and the SCRC is currently going through its team-selection process.

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!

Sports

Plenty of fish at Watch-Green Lake derby Anglers at the 25th Annual Watch Lake-Green Lake Fishing Derby reeled in a whopping 143 fish during the two-day event on the neighbouring lakes June 2-3. The heaviest one tipped the scales at two pounds and 14 1/2 ounces and was hooked by Kelly Lapp from Quesnel. He pocketed $500 cash as his first-place prize. Second place was a tie between Nick Right and Mark Robichaud who shared $200. The first fish brought into the weigh station, caught by Henry Burdeyney of 70 Mile House, arrived at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday morning, which was relatively late, says Krista Froland-Vieira, one of the key event co-ordinators. “Everyone thought the first fish would have been caught a way earlier, so they didn’t bother bringing theirs in right away.”

Sunday’s first fish came in at 5:50 a.m. and was caught by Carl Johnson of 100 Mile House. Both men won one kilogram of beef jerky and a folding lawn chair. A special 25th anniversary derby prize basket put together by the Watch Lake-Green Lake Resort, Guest Ranch & Business Association, which sponsors the event, was won by Mark Grant of 70 Mile House. On Saturday evening, many of the 202 derby registrants took time out from fishing to attend the traditional pig roast dinner, which was served on the beach at hosting business, Watch Lake Lodge. Clouds, which had brought intermittent rain to the derby throughout the day, parted for the dinner hour. “The derby was great and the pig roast was a big success, with no rain,” says Froland-Vieira.

Obituaries

Men George Tittel, Ervin Hannah, Met Boyson and Hank Bueckart led the way. Ladies Maureen Menzies, Nancy Minato, Pauline Weigelt and Sharon Tomlinson had the top scores for the women. Club spokesperson Shirley Boyson says there are more new members still coming, as club membership is upwards of 45 at this point.

Joan

(nee Skelton) March 31, 1943 - May 28, 2012 It is with heartfelt sorrow that we announce the passing of our sister Joan, with her family at her side, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Joan is survived by her loving husband Watson of Moosejaw, Sask.; her daughters: Susan of Whitehorse, Karen of Edmonton, Norma Jean of Moosejaw; and son James of Regina; also several precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Joan was born in Prince George, B.C. and moved to 100 Mile House in the mid-50s with her late parents Chuck and Sadie Skelton. She leaves to remember her three sisters: Darlene Hastings of 100 Mile House, Candice Stark of Mackenzie and Jane Skelton of 100 Mile House along with their husbands, as well as many nieces and nephews. Family and friends will always remember Joan for her fascinating stories, her hard work and her deep love for her family. No service by request.

GRAHAM

William Stuart ‘Stu’ Jan 19, 1933 - June 5, 2012 Stu passed away peacefully with family by his side at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. He is survived by Ethel, his loving wife of 52 years; two children: Michael (Janis) and Amanda; five grandchildren: Justin, Benjamin, Christopher (Loni), Chelsi and Brittany; three sisters in England: Dorothy, Marjorie (Jim), Carole (Barry); and many nieces and nephews.

Agriplex society looks to Stan Halcro Arena’s future Carole Rooney Free Press

The Stan Halcro Arena re-opened this spring and the three groups that used it covered expenses, says 100 Mile Agriplex Society spokesperson Peter Reid. The Cariboo Agility Team, the Bighorn Bow Hunters Archery Club and the 100 Mile Dog Club, which Reid is president, all had rental arrangements. The venue worked well for the clubs who are using it, Reid says. “It was really nice for people to have a place to go to train their animals.” Archery club spokesperson Rick Jones says the group has used the facility for many years, and was “very happy” to see it available again. “It’s really, really good.” The arena is much larger, more centrally located and open for more hours than the facility the archery club had been using during its closure, he adds. Jones, who is also a society board member, says his club is among those that worked hard to get the arena re-opened and would like to see more user groups using the building. Ideally, the board would consist of directors from the various clubs who benefit from the building, he explains. It’s great to have Canlan Ice Sports allowing these groups access to the concession and washrooms at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre next door, he says, adding washrooms will, hopefully, be installed some time this year. Cariboo Agility Team president Roxanne Ziefflie says it was “great” to have use of this large,

Ted Swift kept his eye on the target at the Stan Halcro Arena when the Bighorn Bow Hunters Archery Club held its A&W 3D shoot in March. The renovated and re-opened venue is available once again and in use by various local groups. indoor space with good equipment storage during the cooler seasons. She adds the rent was also reasonable. “It was really good for everybody to have a place like that where they can go; even for a drop-in, it’s excellent for them for agility practice.” The increasing dust was an issue for the dog groups during the spring thaw, but she notes the society board agreed to hose it down for them. “Rick [Jones] and Peter [Reid] have been very helpful.” The group is currently back outdoors for the season at Ziefflie’s home in 108 Mile Ranch, but she plans to use Stan Halcro Arena when the cold weather returns. Reid says some changes to the potential uses of the arena have come about since the society repaired and re-opened the building. A maximum of 100 people are now allowed under the current occupancy permit, he notes, unlike its previous

capacity for more than 300. This rules out some larger 4-H Club events that used to benefit from the large, indoor space, he adds. Other horse events that used the arena, with its dirt-covered floor, before it closed in 2009 were also a big part of its previous user groups, but now they use other facilities, Reid adds. “That’s a good thing because those are privately run, and we don’t want to compete with the private enterprise.” The horse people who use it have to pay a little more, Reid explains, as they stir up the dirt and the society has to groom it afterward for others to use. “For a weekend event, our [venue] is better because there’s more parking and there’s some seats.” He says these groups booked their events last October when Stan Halcro Arena wasn’t available, so the society won’t know what horse bookings they’ll have until this fall.

In case the equine groups are “happy where they are,” Reid adds the society is also looking at the broad picture to maximize the benefit to the community. “There are a lot of users out there. It hasn’t been open that long and we’ve got some ideas kicking around.” The society wants to measure local interest on a potential for removing the dirt to clear the existing concrete floor, he explains, which would eliminate horse use, but could allow a winter venue for many indoor sports that isn’t currently available. People may want to consider the potential for floor hockey, tennis, lacrosse, roller skating, swap meets and other activities, Reid says, adding he encourages folks to call him at 250-3956492 with related ideas or question.

Time to start preparations for fair The cost is $60, and registration deadline is July 12.

BRIDGE LAKE/ INTERLAKES DIANA FORSTER 250-593-2155

Bridge Lake Fair entry booklets are available at all local general stores, and in 100 Mile House, at the Farmers’ Market, the Williams Lake and District Credit Union and Donex Pharmacy & Department Store, or by calling 250- 5934354. The container contest this year is for plant(s) grown in any old bucket or pail. No points are awarded since prizes are a $50 gift certificate from Horse Lake Garden Centre, $25 from La Petite Diane Antique Restoration, and $10 from Danco’s Hoof Trimming. Entrants should note an omission on Page 13 of the entry booklet. Beside Class 14, for tame fruit jam, there should be a statement reading: “OR, for contest, see Page 7.” Certo is sponsoring coupon prizes of $20 and $10

Siana Kelly, left, manned the knitted goods table. She served Richmond residents Cheryl Eckert and Richard Scott during the Sulphurous Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary’s bake and craft sale, May 19. for the best tame fruit jam. Residents can enter 20 sections, ranging from baking through garden produce, handicrafts and photography. The fair is at Interlakes Hall on Aug. 19 and entries are accepted all day Aug. 18. Range cattle Summer is here and that means free range cattle meandering along our roads. Horse Lake Road is of special concern as it is a major travel route and extremely “bendy.” One often finds Betsy and her

calf just around the corner. Drivers should be acutely aware, as the loss of just one calf severely impacts our ranchers’ incomes. Gardeners, especially in the Deka area where cattle roam throughout the subdivision, need to know that only a four-strand barbed wire fence is legal defence against damage by the herd. BLCS news On June 24, at 1 p.m., Eva Bechtel will instruct a Bridge Lake Community School class on painting on silk. The cost is $20.

Space is limited to seven, and registration deadline is June 18. Photographic aficionados will be happy Marshall Cant is leading a three-day digital camera workshop on July 16-18.

Celebrations Interlakes sends warmest congratulations to this year’s Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School graduates: Brandon Allan, Martina Berger, Kelly Diether and Jesse Granberg; and to Dakota, Dallas and Kodiak Canton, Jake Jewitt and Sylvia Steeves who spent at least some of their childhood here. We wish you all an amaz-

ing future. Congratulations also go to Aydin Barnbrook for his outstanding performance at the May 24 Track and Field Meet, which culminated in his earning the boys’ aggregate award, and to his little sister, Darbie, who placed in the 200-metre event. Birthday bubbly goes to Alamu Durand, Vera Rottluff, Mary Weight and Bill Penner.

Neil Pinkett opens show in Parkside Art Gallery Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Neil Pinkett presents his sixth solo show, “From the Corner of my Eye I Saw...” at Parkside Art Gallery from June 8 to July 14. It’s also his largest show to date, with 54 pieces that include many that have never been seen before by the public. The Forest Grove area artist says he gets much of his inspiration from nature. “There are so many unusual patterns in the forest and there’s something iconic and calming about trees.” He adds his favourite subject matter is the little things that often go unnoticed. “When you go for walks in the forest, you see things, like how rot-

ting tree stumps create a landscape of their own.” He’s also drawn by the complexity of leaves blowing in the wind and of running water where there’s constant movement and a sense of it being temporary. A deviation in the collection is a painting he calls “Flying Man,” done completely in blue. It was created as an illustration for an unfinished story he wrote for his young son, Gawen, and shows a different side of the artist. Pinkett says his son also has a talent for drawing, which excites him a little. Pinkett’s medium of choice is oil paint and the main attraction is how oils dry slowly and allow him to work at his own pace. “I’m a slow painter, so acrylic doesn’t suit my style.” He discovered oils by

accident when a complete stranger recognized him as the local artist while passing him on the street one day. The fellow had been packing up the belongings of a relative and came across a large collection of oil paints. He gave them all to Pinkett, who had coincidentally been emulating oil paintings with the use of oil pastels. “I began using the paints and never looked back,” he says, adding the paints came along at just the right moment. His paintings go beyond canvas and some of the more notable ones are four large wall murals which can be found in 100

Mile. He’s also done some illustrating for various publications and a series of cartoon style designs for post cards in England. Pinkett says he’s grateful for the opportunity to show his work in Parkside and likewise Parkside director Barb Brown says they’re fortunate to have him. “I love a large body of work and I love Neil’s work. He’s so different from anyone else around here. He’s unique.” His collection can be viewed at Parkside Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. Admission to the gallery is by donation.

Dear Canimites, An energetic crowd of organizers overflowed five long tables with plants of every description, and two other tables sagged under the weight of muffins, cookies, and cakes. Ann Johansen’s alyssum seeds sold in a flash, as did the lupins and hanging baskets. Big hostas were selling for $3 and multiple bulb pots of iris and lily went for $2 — good buys for the discerning gardener. The Community

Delilah Emile selected the flower at the Canim Lake Community Club plant and bake sale May 26. She wanted to take it home to plant as quickly as possible. Club earned more than $700.

One Day at a Time documents the tremendous revolution that took place in the B.C. Interior’s forest industry three and four decades ago. In one way or another, Dave Ainsworth has had his hand in every aspect of this revolution. Dave is one of those people who knows how to put his vision into practice. It’s this tremendous resourcefulness we owe him credit for. I know of no other book that so accurately records the vital changes that have taken place in the woods and at the sawmills; it’s a record that will benefit the whole industry. ~ Ray Williston, B.C.

How do I know if makI need to Many times, seedlings growing out of gutters are the first signs they require a cleaning. Other signs are: Water spilling over the top of the gutters and very little water is coming out from the downpipes; Leaves stuck to the outside and black streaks forming on the outside of the eavestroughs; A single line has been cut into the landscaping directly below the eavestroughs; Ice damming in the winter months. During rain, the water should be flowing steadily out of the downpipes at a rate proportionate to the volume of rain falling. If cleaning your gutters does not fix these issues, you will need to call in a professional.

Concert benefits local rancher Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Darcey Smith, an Interlakes area cowboy and musician, values the contributions made by pioneers of the South Cariboo and those, past and present, who make their living from ranching and working with the land. Smith says he felt the need to lend a hand after learning Dan Lytton of Sheridan Lake is ill. One of the most valuable things Smith has to share is his music and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s using it to raise some extra cash for Lytton and his family in these tough times. On June 22-24, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presenting an outdoor concert, A Tribute to Cariboo Cowboys, with the help of a few well-known western entertainers, including singer/song writer Ivan Daines of Innisfail, Alberta and legendary Canadian performer Alan

Moberg of Saltspring Island. Hugh McLellan, widely known for his Spirit of the West radio show, and Josslyn Ryan, third runnerup in South Cariboo Idol 2011 will also be there, along with local musicians Jason Ruscheinsky and Connie Simpson. It takes place at Little Horse Lodge campground at Green Lake and camping is free with admission. The facility is fully equipped with power outlets, showers and drinking water. Gates open at 5 p.m. on Friday and music will be nonstop until 2 a.m. On Saturday, entertainment runs from noon to 2 a.m. Sunday opens with a cowboy gospel morning with Moberg at 10 a.m. and the day comes to a close at 10 p.m. Open microphone segments are part of the program, so people are encouraged to bring along their guitars and violins.

A concert day pass is $20 and a weekend pass is $45. Children 10 years and under get in free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Log House Apparel, Tack and Harness, Country Pedlar, Little Horse Lodge, 70 Mile General Store, 100 Mile Feed and Ranch Supply, Donex Pharmacy & Department Store and Bridge Lake Store. Smith says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expecting a good turnout for the concert. Lytton, a longtime local cowboy, was a talented team roper and farrier before a rodeo accident in 2000 put him in a

wheelchair. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let his disability hold him down and has continued to raise cattle on his Sheridan Lake ranch and is involved in community endeavours.

He has recently been diagnosed with cancer. For more information about the concert, contact Smith at 250-593-4586 or 250609-3022.

BBQ planned at Forest Grove Legion GROVE… from page B8 The Legion 261 Bulldogs are part of the 100 Mile Mixed Slo Pitch League. They play two games per week, one on their home field at the Forest Grove community hall and a second game at another league ballpark. The next games are on June 18 and 26, starting at 6:30 p.m. A tournament is being planned for mid-July. Community appreciation barbecue The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 261 - Forest Grove will be hosting a community appreciation barbecue on June 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Everyone young and old is invited to drop by for great food and the chance to spend time with other Grovers and Legion visitors. Legion president Tom Timleck says the

barbecue is a way for the Legion to open its doors to the community, as well as an opportunity to thank the different groups and individuals that support Legion activities throughout the year. Awards day On June 27 at 12:30 p.m., an Awards Day ceremony will be held at the Forest Grove Elementary School to honour students’ achievements for the school year. Everyone is invited to attend. Your presence would make the ceremony extra special for the students.

the lake on July 1. On the great day, they pack up family and friends, food for a potluck lunch, lawn chairs and swimming gear, and away they go to the beautiful beach at Ruth Lake Park. Barbecues are lit and a potluck lunch is set out. Later on, everyone gathers under the flag and the heartfelt notes of O Canada roll

out across the lake. Years ago, a picnic such as this would have been the norm, the way people gathered for all kinds of occasions. Apparently, our Canada Day picnic is so unique it was mentioned on the CBC. Farmers’ market Steve Roy reports the Forest Grove farmers’ market is off

to a good start despite some unco-operative spring weather. Bedding plants, trees, hanging baskets and other market items are available. The group is looking for someone to operate a concession at the market. If you are interested or would like to participate in the market as a vendor, please contact Roy at 250397-4103.
