Ombudsperson: seniors care falls short Local senior Henry Hall is encouraging others to speak out to government in regards to a recent report on the state of seniors care in British Columbia. The Lac la Hache resident has been a B.C. Old Age Pensioners Organization (O.A.P.O.) regional

director for the past four years. Ombudsperson Kim Carter’s second report on seniors care in the province was released earlier this year with 143 findings and 176 recommendations. The report to the Ministry of Health, Ministry Responsible for Housing and five regional

health authorities resulted from Carter’s investigation into home and community care issues, home support, assisted living, residential care and fair treatment of seniors. Among numerous aspects, Carter reviewed the requirements of seniors care staff, and

found some workers were afraid to speak up when they saw evidence of abuse and neglect. Hall says staff should have no hesitation in reporting abuse or neglect and must not suffer any ramifications from doing so. See HEALTH CARE… page A3

New manager impressed with community Carole Rooney Free Press

West Fraser’s 100 Mile Lumber has a new general manager and he is new to the South Cariboo. Peter Andrews recently joined the firm to head up its local mill operations and he brings 25 years of forest industry experience to the job. Of those, 18 were spent working with West Fraser in various capacities at its other mills, including a total of 12 years in Quesnel. A registered professional forester (RPF), he also worked in Hinton, Alberta for six years, before returning to the Quesnel division as woodlands manager. Andrews met his wife, Noella, when they were both attending University of British Columbia in the late 1980s. The youngest of their three boys, Sam, is graduating secondary school this year in Quesnel, Peter explains, and will then move to 100 Mile House with Noella this summer. Their other sons, Ben and Josh, are currently both attending university, but Peter notes they return to the family nest regularly between semesters. “I’m excited because this is an area we’ve never explored. We’d just drive through 100 Mile going somewhere else. “There’s so much to see here, lakes and trails for out-

The boards, bark, shavings, wood chips and sawdust are all used for various products. door recreation; we’re really looking forward to it.” The family especially enjoys hiking, skiing and canoeing, so Peter says he thinks they’re “well positioned here” to enjoy the South Cariboo. “There are great people here, too. I’m just really

happy with the folks I’ve met so far.” Peter says he is “very impressed” with the experience of members on his new team at the local mill, as well as with their “level of commitment to make the operation the best.” “People really care

about their jobs, and it is fun to work in an environment like that.” Maximizing timber products Noting his past experience is mainly in logging, road building, silviculture and planning, Peter says

he is looking forward to a “very challenging” new role at the 100 Mile Lumber facility. “It’s exciting; it really is. It’s something new for me. Being involved in manufacturing is different than most professional foresting.” He explains it sells about 40 per cent of the lumber it manufactures to Asia, 40 per cent to the United States, and 20 per cent to Canada. Since the elimination of beehive burners three years ago, he notes there are also byproducts processed now that have tangible value. “What most people don’t realize is we really are getting the most value from the whole log.” Capital Power Corporation in Williams Lake buys the bark to use in energy production, and Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group purchases the shavings for pellets. He adds the wood chips are sold to various pulp mills in the province. Then all of the sawdust is used in 100 Mile Lumber’s own system to dry all of its lumber and heat the entire mill facility, Peter explains. “All of that bioenergy product gets used; it doesn’t get wasted.” He notes the cleanburning heating system isn’t smoky and burns efficiently.

HEALTH CARE… from page A1 Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett agrees protocols are needed for confidential reporting, given Carter’s findings about staff hesitance. “That’s sad, that truly is. If the workers are afraid to speak up, then there has to be a be a better system put in place.” However, Barnett explains a provincial elder abuse prevention identification and response plan will be in place by December 2012. She adds a new risk assessment tool for residential facilities to provide a more accurate indication of potential risks to quality and safety, with an established process for compliance enforcement, will also be implemented by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, Carter found seniors in care could pay up to 80 per cent of their income, providing they have $325 remaining for themselves. Hall says if a senior is in a residential care, they may need less money for themselves, but for those in care at home, that might not be sufficient to hire the extra help they need. “There are a lot of things [inhome care workers] are not allowed to do, and that’s ridiculous.” Hall explains health-care workers can’t remove stale food from a refrigerator, for example, or extend the amount of time based on their immediate assessment of the senior’s needs at the time. “They haven’t got time to really talk to the seniors [and determine

their needs] in the length of time they have allotted. And, a lot of these seniors are all by themselves.” Barnett says the 80 per cent of income care cost applies to people in residential care, and funding depends on what they need. “There are other hardship programs you can apply into, and ... I’ve heard of very, very few that, if they are short a bit, are not taken care of.” Carter found subsidized longterm home support and services for independent living expended by Interior Health Authority in 2009/10 decreased to 582,632 hours, from 919,999 in 2007/08. Hall says that has almost been cut in half over the three years, which should be remedied, particularly after all the years these

seniors paid taxes into government revenues. “Right now, the provincial government is just interested in having no deficit for the next election.” Carter also recommended standardized training and registration for community health workers. Halls says he “certainly agrees” with that, and has his own suggestions. “I think they should go back to training the nurses in the hospitals, and not in the universities.” Carter’s full Best of Care Report (Part 2) and a summary of the resulting investigation she has launched can be downloaded online at www.ombudsman. bc.ca/seniors.

Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux visited the Cedar Crest Society for Community Living’s Career Centre on June 13 to announce some changes to improve services in British Columbia. The changes stem from the Client Support Team (CST) created last fall in response to concerns raised by individuals and families about the level of services provided by Community Living BC (CLBC). Cadieux said the CST was put into place to talk to families that were experiencing problems for which they could not find solutions. “It gave us a lot of information in government about things that weren’t working right and where we needed to do things differently.” The CST identified a need for an ongoing mechanism to provide another means of getting help for those who can’t find it through the various ministries, she explained. Since it began accepting requests in October 2011, 289

Of those, 77 per cent of the issues have been resolved and 161 individuals now receive additional services, she added. Now, a new Integrated Services Support Team (ISST) will take over this work with a dedicat-

Together with CLBC staff, the minister said it will review all of the services provided in each case to ensure these individuals are receiving the appropriate level.

Ombudsperson’s report for seniors’ care BC Health Coalition cochair Alice Edge says the provincial government has not committed to addressing most of the problems outlined in the Ombudsperson Kim Carter’s second report on seniors care in British Columbia. The action plan for improving seniors’ care, which the B.C. Liberal government announced Feb. 14 (the same day as the report), does not cover all of Carter’s recommendations, Edge adds, so the coalition is looking for that commitment to be made. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says the action plan will improve access to information for seniors and their families, so they can make better care choices.

So we need to make decisions that communities feel they can live with.”

Committee member Donna Barnett says it began with a series of meetings with ministry staff, many of whom are also professional foresters. The CaribooChilcotin MLA adds the committee listened to a step-bystep rundown on how forestry conclusions are reached, the outlook for mid-term timber supply, and the projected shelf life and remaining inventory percentages for both beetle-killed pine and other species. “We got a good feel for what the resource is like out on the land base, so now we’re going to go out and listen to the people, and then go back and look at everything.” Considering a move from the current volume-based tenures to area-based tenures, which Clark

e appreciate the fact the B.C. Liberal government is in the process of gathering information about the mid-term timber supply shortage, which, by the way, was not a surprise to professional foresters, harvesting companies or other users of Crown land in British Columbia. This issue is the end piece of the fallout from the mountain pine beetle devastation that hit this province before the turn of the century. Back then, people, who were being impacted by the ravenous bug, were predicting what we are beginning to experience in the Interior. The political answer was to race into the Crown forests to harvest the beetle-killed pine trees while they were still marketable, and there was a glut of blue-stained pine in the market. Harvesting companies had to be enticed to cut down the dead pine by allowing them to take a certain percentage of “green” wood while they did it. There was so much wood being brought in from the woods, harvesting companies started upgrading their mills to handle it all. They built bigger mills to increase quantities of less-valuable lumber to fill the pockets of the demanding shareholders. Now, we have hit the point where that strategy is no longer sustainable for either the forests or the harvesting companies. However, shareholders still demand profits, which means harvesting companies need access to more wood. And if they don’t get it, there is the very real concern mills will shut down to the detriment of rural communities up and down Highway 97. So, in jumps the B.C. Liberals with their threemonth study that will determine the future of Crown forests in B.C. The government must remember it is at a very important crossroad in the history of the forest industry in this province, especially when it comes to giving access to areas that are now protected. We are already feeling the affects of the giant cut blocks in the Cariboo-Chilcotin with the alternating flood/drought seasons. Once we slash and burn the old-growth forests, they’re gone. We need to listen to the scientists and the registered professional foresters. People who want to get involved and give their input must do so by July 20 – go to www.leg. bc.ca/timbercommittee/.

Just kill Pacific Carbon Trust If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it: that’s what our parents taught us, but what if something is so broken, it can’t be fixed at all? The Pacific Carbon Trust (PCT) is broken beyond repair. It sucks millions of dollars out of taxpayers’ pockets every year and deposits them in the wallets of big business, all in the name of carbon neutrality. It’s time to shut the PCT down. Set up in 2008, and wholly owned by the provincial government, the PCT sells carbon credits to government agencies, businesses, not-for-profits and individuals looking to be carbon neutral. The PCT then takes that money and buys carbon emission offsets from a variety of sources. For example, a company that puts in a new boiler and saves 5,000 tonnes of carbon emissions can sell that carbon credit to the PCT. Government agencies then buy that carbon credit to cover, or “off-set” their own carbon emissions. It’s corporate welfare in the name of carbon neutrality, and it’s already cost taxpayers $19.4 million. Of the 783,816 carbon credits sold by the PCT since 2009, 776,026 came from government and public sector organizations. That’s 99 per cent of all the credits sold. A grand total of 11 credits have been bought

JORDAN BATEMAN

GUEST SHOT by individuals. School districts across British Columbia have paid more than $4.4 million for these carbon credits. That’s public money taken out of classrooms, and ultimately, taxpayer pockets. Independent MLA Bob Simpson has done a lot of research on the corporate projects funded through the PCT with our tax dollars. It’s not good news. Encana, an energy company with more than $1 billion in cash flow, received an undisclosed payment from the PCT in return for “reducing and eliminating flaring, incineration and venting in B.C.,” according to BC Oil and Gas Commission documents (another PCT client, incidentally). No other details have been released, says Simpson. Interfor, Canfor, TimberWest, Kruger Products, Sun Peaks, Neucel Pulp, Intrawest and Lafarge have all received PCT money — your tax dollars. You have to feel bad for Coast Hotels, one of just seven B.C. businesses to buy carbon credits from the PCT. Hopefully, its $2,500 didn’t

go to any of their competitors, such as the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside, the Whistler Westin, Whistler Marriott and Vancouver Four Seasons, all of which received PCT dollars. Yet, Environment Minister Terry Lake and NDP Leader Adrian Dix are both trying to put Humpty Dumpty back together. They want to fix the PCT, using millions of tax dollars on government green washing, by limiting the PCT to investing in public sector carbon reduction projects. Interestingly, neither the BC Liberal Party nor the BC NDP buy carbon credits from the PCT to offset their own political operations. When it’s tax dollars, it’s OK, but when it’s campaign donations, carbon neutrality falls by the wayside. Taxpayers should demand that the PCT be immediately scrapped. In an era of deficit budgets and trying to plug the HST funding gap, the province needs to focus on core services and maximize the use of every tax dollar. Government carbon neutrality is a frill we cannot afford, and lining the pockets of corporate green washers makes no long-term environmental or fiscal sense. Jordan Bateman is the B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

ENTERTAINMENT Logging needs to slow down Letters to the editor

To the editor: Wow, it’s nice to read a guest shot from a forester with a PHD and 38 years experience (Bill Bourgeois, June 13, Free Press), which backs up what local trappers have been saying for the last five years. We are not only facing a timber-supply crisis, but also an animal-population crisis, which few people know anything about. As reported in previous weeks, moose and deer are declining in the Cariboo and most dramatically in heavily logged pine-beetle areas. As Bourgeois points out, “we need a commitment by government” for “inventory of what we have in our forests.” Local trappers can tell you how dramatically our old growth dependent species, like marten and fisher, have declined and how the huge beetle salvage cut blocks are wildlife deserts. But we need scientific inventories to back up our claims and make sure the forest companies listen to our demands for critical habitat protection. Ranchers will tell you about the rapid spring run off, followed by the disappearance of creeks, which used to flow year round. Beavers and muskrats have declined because the low summer water levels promote the tularemia outbreaks, which wipe out our most important “water conservers.” (Tularemia is an infection common in wild rodents that is passed to humans through contact with infected animal tissues or by ticks, biting flies, and mosquitoes.) Resort and lakeshore property owners are adding their support to our claims, as they, too, see the affects of this rapid snowmelt. Logging does not have to stop, but it surely has to slow down, with a return to smaller, carefully planned cut blocks, which can slow snowmelt, retain more water and benefit our forest animals. Paul Blackwell, president South Cariboo Trappers Association

Dog owners not taking responsibility for their pets irks reader To the editor: A few years ago, we moved to Perkins Road at Forest Grove. We enjoyed the peace and quietness of the area. We love to be able to sit on our patio in the summer. Over the past few years, we have noticed the dog population has doubled. Unfortunately, we have also taken notice people are not caring for their pets. We have a few dogs that love to chase cars. If you walk past the yard, the dogs will run out

growling at you. They are neither tethered nor leashed. The owners are nowhere to be seen half the time, or they are shouting at their pets to be quiet. Some of the pet owners are not cleaning up after their dogs. I would like to ask the owners of these dogs to please start taking some responsibilities for their pets, and have some consideration for their neighbours. L. Johnson Forest Grove

Choosing work instead of welfare

VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government has taken some modest steps to tighten up the province’s income assistance system, and to encourage people to work when they are able to. With Premier Christy Clark swooping in to take credit, Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux unveiled changes that included fixing the worst mistake in B.C. Liberal policy. Cadieux acknowledged British Columbia was the only province that clawed back all earnings from employable welfare recipients, and she announced that from now on, they will be able to earn up to $200 a month without penalty. The exemption for disabled people is increased from $500 to $800 a month. Another important change is requiring welfare recipients to file income tax returns. People can now do temporary work when it comes along, report the income and take advantage of the various tax credits that come from participating in society instead of just living off it. Any experience earning money is valuable experience. With baby boomers starting to retire in big numbers, the expected labour shortage has begun across Western Canada. And yet, increasing numbers of foreign workers are coming in to do farm and other work, while many young people are unemployed. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon took note of this during his budget preparations. Increasing numbers of young, employable people were applying for welfare in southern B.C., while jobs go begging in the booming

TOM FLETCHER

BC VIEWS northeast. Falcon mused about setting up a program to provide training and plane fare for these people, an idea quickly dubbed “welfare air.” Another effort to get young people working is Jobfest, a rockthemed road show currently touring northern B.C. towns. It attracts young people with music and souvenirs like drumsticks and guitar picks, and offers them skills assessment using sexy iPad apps and graphics that depict carpentry as cool. If Jobfest and welfare air sound a bit desperate, it’s because they are. They illustrate our society’s problem. We have a public school system where students pass whether they do the work or not. The culture assumes self-esteem is more important than achievement. The teachers’ union constantly sets an example that the way to get what you want is to stamp your feet and demand it from government. What do we expect young people to learn?

And how easy is it for B.C. to slip into a Greece-like tailspin, where a majority expects to be carried on the backs of the shrinking minority who do productive work? Old-timers might recall when Mike Harcourt’s NDP government took over from the allegedly miserly Social Credit regime and raised welfare rates. They compounded that mistake by relaxing eligibility rules and making it easier for employable people to stay on welfare. After a couple of years of this wealth redistribution, 10 per cent of the B.C. population was on welfare, with more piling on every day. Faced with the results of this staggering blunder, Harcourt lashed out at “cheats, deadbeats and varmints” scamming B.C. taxpayers and launched a crackdown on fraud. Later, the NDP cut the basic rate for single employables to $500 a month. Today, it stands at $610, and the NDP looks poised to repeat history. Surrey MLA Jagrup Brar did a month-long publicity stunt in January, living on welfare by wandering from shelter to food bank with TV cameras trailing behind. Brar would have been better off if welfare air had been available. Instead of learning to live off the burgeoning urban handout industry, he could have gone up to Dawson Creek or Fort St. John and worked as a labourer.

Renewable energy development needed To the editor: Recent warnings of flood and high water levels in British Columbia are strong testimony to this year’s rainy spring and higher than normal B.C. snowpack. They also mean the province’s many hydroelectric dams will not be short of water this year like they have been for most of the past decade. As crazy as it sounds, for most of the past decade, B.C. has had to import power from outside the province to meet its energy needs. Much of that imported power has not been clean hydroelec-

tric power, as it has been coal-fired. We have an incredible amount of green, renewable energy in this province that we could be developing to meet our energy needs. We should not need to import power

in B.C. even in a lowwater year. Considering this year’s higher than normal water flow is clearly the exception rather than the rule, we should not allow it to lull us into complacency. We need to get on with

developing our renewable energy resources and we need to do it aggressively, so we are ready for whatever the future holds for our province. Robert van Dyck Vancouver

High five for Highpoint Helicopters To the editor: On June 4, a large group of us from Cedar Crest Society for Community Living went to the Highpoint Helicopters’ open house at 108 Mile Ranch. They welcomed us, answered our many questions and offered us cake

and coffee. We would just like to thank them for recognizing we are just people and treating us as such. We enjoyed their respectful hospitality. Andrew Bremner 108 Mile Ranch

Newsbeat Around the province Two plucked from Fraser River PRINCE GEORGE - A woman and girl are lucky to be alive today after falling in the cresting Fraser River Friday, June 8. Police believe a 22-year-old woman and a 16-year-old girl were sitting with their feet over an embankment when they fell in at about 5 p.m. Making matters worse, the pair, according to police, were both intoxicated. Three plainclothes members of the Prince George RCMP’s Crime Reduction Team and two general duty officers were the first to arrive on the scene. Officers located a female in the water struggling to keep hold of the eroding bank. A second female was observed in the water a few metres down stream holding on to vegetation. The officers utilized the winch from the SUV police vehicle and lowered one of the plainclothes officers down the approximate 15-foot embankment to the girl. The officer secured her to the winch. Prince George Fire/Rescue attended the scene and provided assistance securing the woman. Both Prince George residents were successfully removed and transported to the University Hospital of Northern BC for treatment of hypothermia and minor injuries.

Cat killings not suspicious KAMLOOPS - A pair of recent Kamloops cat killings believed to have been suspicious are likely the work of a natural predator, according to an expert brought in to help solve a rash of similar finds in the Lower Mainland. Melinda Merck, an Atlanta-based forensic veterinary expert, reviewed evidence from both Kamloops discoveries — one in Valleyview and the other in Aberdeen. “Dr. Merck viewed photographs of the cats and the placement of the cat and, based on her expertise, she determined it was likely a predator,” said Marcie Moriarty, the BCSPCA’s general manager of cruelty investigations.

Derek Bailey Victoria I think it’s good. Being a senior myself, I’m quite satisfied.

Barb Nowell 103 Mile No. They need improvements, especially in the north. They’ve closed long-term care facilities and moved older people away from their families.

Brenda Brownlee Little Green Lake My father was in a care home and it was very adequate, and so was the care he received before that in his own home.

Robert Hinkkuri Mahood Lake Personally, my wife and I find the services are good and we’ve been treated well.

C apsule C omments Pharmacists put auxiliary labels on prescription bottles to highlight something important about the drug within. At this time of year, you may see a label that says to avoid overexposure to the sun. It’s important to heed this warning. You can be more susceptible to sunburn due to the drug causing photosensitivity reactions. When you are choosing a sunscreen product, look for the ones labeled broad spectrum and have a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. This will better protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Also remember to put enough lotion on the skin. To ensure you get the full benefit from your sunscreen, you need to apply at least 1 oz. Many people apply much less and the SPF rating of 15 can actually be much less. To allow the sunscreen ingredients to bind to the skin, apply at least 30 minutes before sun exposure. Many people take fish oil capsules daily for better heart health. They take them for their omega-3 fatty acid content. One of the side effects for some people is a fishy aftertaste. This can be avoided by storing the capsules in the freezer. It won’t affect their action but will eliminate that fishiness afterwards. Now more than ever, pharmacists can work with you and your doctor to make sure you’re as healthy as you can be.

PSO student aces heavy equipment course Carole Rooney Free Press

Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School student Devon Dunkel, 17, recently completed the three-day Heavy Metal Rocks equipment training, and won an award for his efforts. He took the heavy

equipment operation training along with four other PSO Grade 11 or 12 students and 11 more from elsewhere in School District #27 (SD27). Devon says he signed up because he thought it would be “a cool experience” and equipment operation might be

something he would want to pursue for future employment opportunities. “I wanted to do it because I’d always wanted to run machinery and I didn’t ever know where I’d get the chance to run that many different types.” It gave him the chance to see what it’s like to operate heavy equipment, and how difficult it might or might not be, he adds. “I found running the grader about the hardest machinery there. It was a little bit challenging until you got the hang of it because of all the different controls to level things out.” The rest of the equipment was “pretty easy” to operate, Devon explains. The excavators were the most fun, he says, adding both smaller and larger versions were included in the training. The trucks were the easiest, as he notes

those involved only driving and manoeuvring. Devon says he especially liked the instructors because they were serious about their task, but made the training fun and were skilled at communicating with youth. “They really connected well with the students, and they were really good at instructing.” SD27 Transition, Training and Trades co-ordinator Gord Armour says about three dozen companies and sponsors and a large number of individuals volunteered hours, equipment and supplies to make the project a success. These dedicated students were on site each morning by 7:30 a.m. and operated the equipment until 4:30 p.m., stopping only for coffee and lunch breaks, he notes. “The smiles on See DUNKEL… page A14

Academic students earn helping hand Ken Alexander Free Press

Class of 2012 students, family and friends and donors gathered in the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School gymnasium for the annual Scholarship Tea on June 6. Principal Vic Brett presided over the event and he noted more than $60,000 from the community was being handed out to the deserving students. It was a proud time for everyone and there were a lot of smiles and hugs, as students came to the front to receive their scholarships and bursaries. There were also some tears, as there were several memorial scholarships handed out during the evening, and there was an emotional

connection between the donors and the recipients. The awards went as follows: Benjamin Bedford: Brent Henry Memorial; Lac la Hache Community Club; Xerox Bursary; and Wyse Family Bursary. Kirsten Bock: 100 Mile General District Hospital Auxiliary; Dogwood District Award; Physicians of 100 Mile House in Memory of Dr. Eric Bock; PSO Eagle’s Nest Amnesty Bursary; and The Natural World Scholarship.

JobFest to rock youth in 100 Mile House Carole Rooney Free Press

A Jobfest tour recently introduced by the province is coming to 100 Mile House on July 6. The mobile event will stop in 50 British Columbia communities to encourage young people to find training and employment. To help get them excited about their futures, the rockmusic-themed event mimics a concert tour, complete with a live headliner band. Local community performers and speakers will also be featured. Tents will be set up as career resource centres, and 50 highlighted career videos will

be showcased. On-stage entertainment will run throughout the day and JobFest visitors will receive some concert-style giveaways, such as T-shirts, DVDs, sou-

venir drumsticks and guitar picks. Two inflatable tents resembling giant amplifiers will add to the overall rock-concert ambiance. Among the featured activities, JobFest 2012 will showcase six career tools and resources for B.C. youth and job seekers. Most of these are online tools, resourc-

es and websites, such as WorkBC.com, for searching jobs, training and exploration of various employment fields, and iPad apps to narrow down their possible career choices. O t h e r s i n c l u d e Careertrekbc. ca, where those seeking careers can watch 50 job profile videos, such as Episode 32: helicopter pilot. Local young people and their families can visit JobFest between 2 and 8 p.m. at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre to find out more about B.C.’s labour market trends and career opportunities. For more details about JobFest, visit the website at www. jobfest2012.ca.

GARTH’S ELECTRIC Company pany Ltd.

Cariboo Treasures Frugals helps you declutter. The combination of re-gifting and decluttering plus the environmental impact and Ànancial considerations now-a-days, is the concept behind Frugal’s. People are wanting to clear out their clutter, either they are downsizing or their tastes have changed, and it’s a good chance their children have totally different tastes. You should be taking charge of your “possessions” not have your possessions taking charge of you. It’s hard to give something up that someone gave you years ago, but if you are not using it and it’s just taking up space, get rid of it. Some things can go to non-proÀt organizations, but if you have quality giftware and collectables that have retained value, bring it down to the store. I still remember the Àrst time I received a cheque from a consignment store, I was thrilled. The other reason for Frugal’s is re-gifting. Buying quality gifts does not have to be expensive. One man’s clutter is another man’s treasure and we have many treasures at the store. I love this new addition to my store. I get to know the history of the items brought in and people learning to simplify their lives by reducing their “clutter” but still have emotional attachment are pleased that the items will go to good homes. When you start simplifying your life

Canada celebrates its 145th birthday on July 1 and there’s going to be a party. It’s taking place at the 108 Heritage Site near the Watson Barn, and includes entertainment, food, craft vendors and many children’s activities. 100 Mile & District Historical Society secretary/treasurer MaryAnn Rutledge is back again this year to co-ordinate the event. “It’s going to be a full day with lots going on.” The free family event starts at 11 a.m. with the opening ceremony, which will include an RCMP colour guard, speeches from South Cariboo dignitaries and commentary from emcees Larry Rode and Rob Fry. Entertainment

will be non-stop until closing time, 4:30 p.m., with performances from Eclectica Community Choir, can-can dancers, Cariboo Idols,

rhythmic gymnasts, a judo demonstration, Hawaiian dancing, a bluegrass band and more. Seating will be provided under cover of a huge tent.

Children will have a lot of fun playing on a huge blow-up bounce toy and participating in the many games and races. There will also be a petting zoo, face

Celebrate Your Special Day at the 108 Mile Ranch!

Mahood Falls Community Society meeting productive By Peter Hart The Mahood Falls Community Society had its annual spring meeting recently at Bob and Carol MacKenzie’s Mahood Valley Ranch home. The 33-member society represents families living between the McNeil Ranch and Mahood Lake. It is a well-organized group, keeping everyone upto-date on what is happening and advocating local interests to government agencies and the forestry industry. The 21 members attending sat outside on the lawn of the ranch house, with a beautiful view across level green hay fields to the hills that surround the ranch. Bob pointed out a notch where the old Hudson’s Bay Company trail to Kamloops passed through the property. The group has two committees, one dealing with road matters headed by Jim Booth, and the other with forestry issues headed by John Janzen. The society values good relations with industry and government in these two critical areas, and works hard to

12 education. Patti stayed a few months to help Donna learn how to handle eight grades in one room. To Donna’s credit, Lynne notes her students went on through high school and to further studies. The original school was demolished in the

1960s, to be replaced by a “portable,” complete with inside plumbing. It served until 1989 when it was moved to 100 Mile House, marking the end of the Canim Lake East School that had served the pioneer families of the area for a generation.

The 108 Mile Ranch Community Centre has 2 halls to choose from. The main floor has a 200 seat capacity and a self-contained kitchen. We also have a cozier setting upstairs for small gatherings and weddings to a maximum capacity of 80 people. For inquiries and bookings, call 250-791-5599 To find out more or to view photos of our facility, go to: www.108ranch.com/ commnityhall.html

The Mahood Falls Community Society recently had its spring meeting. Executive members presiding over the meeting were treasurer Sharron Simms, left, secretary Carol Preston and president Carol MacKenzie. maintain a full flow of communication. This has led to a cooperative relationship that has benefitted the community. The society’s executive includes president Carol MacKenzie, secretary Carol Preston and treasurer Sharron Simms. Directors are Dave Bolton, Hans Gossen, Bob Hinkurri, Gunther Rosenstock and Phil Simms. Discussions ranged widely from graders and gravel to logging and watersheds. Cariboo Regional District Area H Director Margo Wagner talked about the Emergency Preparedness Plan, and left reading material. She also agreed to conduct a CPR course

in the future. The future of the old Canim Lake East School teacherage, which is owned by the society, was discussed. The building has fallen into disrepair and the society is considering demolishing it for liability reasons. Lynne Baker (nee McNeil) and B. MacKenzie provided information about the history of the area’s first school and teacherage. The first school was built in 1951 by local residents. At that time, the provincial government funded a teacher provided there were eight students. The Higgins and McNeil families could provide only seven, so Benjie

McNeil, Lynne’s dad, hired an additional man with two children to make up the required number. The first teacher was Verna Hopkins, a young woman who had just completed her training. She boarded with Rube Roberts who lived just east of the Red Creek Bridge. Verna stayed one year and was replaced by Patti Law who was in her 60s and refused to board, so in 1952, the community built a teacherage. She stayed for about four years before retiring. Because no replacement teacher could be found, Lynne’s sister, Donna McNeil, took over, even though she was fresh out of high school with a Grade

Senior’s Month There’s no quitting for many seniors (NC)—The dream for many of us has always been to retire early. We imagine it will be a time to spend summer days on the golf course, a time for catching up on reading and a time to escape the Canadian winters for the warmth of the south. Sounds like the life of a retiree, but in recent years a growing trend is to delay retirement for a few more years in the workplace. Traditionally the age of retirement has been 65. Today, it’s common to see people working until they are forced into retirement by their company, or until they choose to do so for health reasons. “Many people are living longer and enjoying healthier active lives, ,” explains Christopher Lundström, the executive director for Doro, North America, a Swedish telecommunications company and a global leader in the design of smart, easy- to-use phones. “This naturally affects the age that seniors are ready to retire.” As the average Canadian lifespan increases, it is inevitable that the workplace will include more workers over the age

“We create products that active seniors are comfortable using to help them stay connected and in the workforce.” Canadian companies continue to adapt their workplaces to create senior friendly environments. This includes offering flexschedules, part-time positions and learn-

of 65. For many eligible retirees, work is a necessity to compensate for pension short-falls, while others see their careers as what defines them and they choose to remain in the workforce to stay busy and keep social. Seniors are a valuable resource as they bring a strong work ethic and hold a life’s worth of experience. One of the challenges seniors face by remaining in the workplace is the continuous change

Keeping wells well Spring and autumn are typically good times for sanitizing water wells, which removes the buildup of impurities in domestic water systems. A few days of inconvenience during treatment is well worth the improved quality and safety of drinking water. Periodic analysis is necessary to determine the frequency of sanitization appropriate for each well, but a rule of thumb recommended is to test water twice a year. Although the majority of area residences are supplied by lake water, back lots are usually serviced by wells, which need to be maintained.

ONE DAY AT A TIME The story of Lumber and founders David and Susan Ainsworth, detailing the history

of 100 Mile House and area

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 beneďŹ t the whole industry. ~ Ray Williston, B.C.

Weeds dandy Despite their many attributes as a nutritional food source, the dandelion plant is an unwelcome weed for most people. Fields and roadsides are blanketed with these bright and beautiful “Cariboo sunflowers.� I admit I get over-anxious and take the weed whacker to these hardy and prolific plants growing both in our yard and on the boulevard. My brother visited recently and cringed at the sight of

all these weeds. He claims to struggle with keeping his city-sized 20- by 30-foot plot of lawn, free of these unwanted plants. He did, however, give me a chuckle, worth repeating. He said, “When I die, bring me back as a dandelion – they seem to be able to live just about anywhere and they never completely die.� Isn’t that the truth?

Practical shooters compete in Lone Butte Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

The Lone Butte Practical Shooters of the Lone Butte Fish and Wildlife Association (LBFWA) joined resources with the Williams Lake Practical Shooters Club to host the 2012 Lone Butte Redneck action shooting match June 16-17. The event, sanctioned by the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) attracted 43 shooters who came from all over British Columbia to test their skill at shooting targets on 15 different stages. LBFWA president Brian Williams says all participants shot 470 rounds, as they made their way through the course. Action shooting involves a combination of accuracy and speed, where targets can move, react when hit and others must be discovered, as the shooter makes his way through the stage. Shooters must use strategy and react quickly to be successful, Williams explains. “You have a loaded gun in your holster and when the timer goes you start the stage and may have to shoot 20 targets. You have to look for them [targets] and

shoot in sequence with a high degree of safety.” The shooter who hits all of the targets on stage in the fastest time wins. Clint Milburn of Coquitlam was winner of the Standard division and Mark Hamrol of Richmond won the Open division. The Production category winner was Nick King of Kelowna, and in the Revolver class, Geoff Adams of the Peace River area was victorious. Fred Klosser of Vancouver won the Classic event. Williams was the only competitor from the South Cariboo but says he didn’t do as well as he would have liked. He’s been shooting for 20 years and travels widely to compete in IPSCsanctioned events. Williams says many club members and members of the general public volunteered their time to make the shoot a successful event. The two practical shooting clubs will join together again on the Labour Day long weekend in Lone Butte to host the provincial competition, Sept. 1-3. It will determine who makes the B.C. team, which will compete at Canadian nationals.

Only one turned into a win, but coach John Park says his team played exceptionally well. “Defensively, we excelled, allowing less than five shots on net all day.

Red Rock Grill still hot in men’s fastball Ken Alexander Free Press

The closest game in the 100 Mile Men’s Fastball League last week happened on June 11 at Lumberman’s Park, as the league leaders Red Rock Grill went up against the Shuswap Defenders (fourth). It was scoreless through two innings, until Mark Boyce hit a deep shot to straight away centre field for a solo home run for Shuswap. Defenders catcher Dave Archie added to the lead in the fourth with another solo blast, making the score 2-0. However, the Red Rock came to life in the bottom half of the inning, scoring four runs off of Shuswap’s hardthrowing pitcher Kevin Neufeld. He struck out eight before giving way to Stumpy Boyce for the start of the fifth. The score stayed

4-2 until the final inning when Shuswap scored twice to knot the score at four apiece. Then Brad Mills stepped up to the plate for Red Rock to lead off the home half of the sixth inning and blasted a two-strike pitch over the right fielder’s head, and galloped home with an inside-the-park home run for the 5-4 victory. Red Rock chucker Pat Findlay had his best game of the season, as he struck out 11 Defenders during the contest.

Sanford victorious Sanford and Dillman Hornets (third) knocked off the Lac la Hache Food Market Bantams (fifth) 14-1 on June 12. Connor Edle went the distance for the Bantams and recorded four strikeouts and hit a solid single in the third. Shortstop Scott Cross made a

spectacular diving catch, as he tracked down a bloop fly. Sanford’s Mitchell Payette, another young chucker, had a solid game on the rubber as he struck out eight en route to the victory.

Comeback falls short The next evening, Jake’s Pub Old Buds (sixth) got by the Bantams by an 18-10 score. The teams exchanged batteries (pitchers and catchers), as has been the case for most of the season. Edle (four strikeouts) pitched and Dylan Pinto caught for the Old Buds, while Len Goin caught Jason Armeneau (four strikeouts) for the Bantams. Jake’s jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning, but the Bantams closed the gap to 5-3 at the end of two. The Old Buds blew the game open, six runs to the Bantams

Weatherman rains on 108 ladies and senior clubs Rainy conditions resulted in the cancellation of Seniors Day at the 108 Resort Golf Course on June 14. Club spokesperson Shirley Boyson says it was a total rainout, so not many golfers arrived for a game, and those who did show up, changed their minds and went home. “We are hoping for a nice day next June 21, as we are planning a free lunch with nine holes of golf

along with some door prizes.” Gloria Corno says the 108 Ladies Club also had to cancel because of the rain.

one in the third, and the two squads brought six runners over the plate in the fourth for a 17-10 Jake’s lead. The elderly friends scored one more in the fifth. One bad inning Exeter Sporting Goods (second) beat

Sanford 12-7 on June 14 when Sanford had one of those bad innings that comes along from time to time. Exeter’s Jay James caught Craig Allison, who registered two strikeouts in three innings, and Paul Carey who struck out one in the two innings

he pitched. Payette went the distance for Sanford and got three strikeouts, while Brayden Sanford took care of the duties behind the plate. These two young men will likely become the future stars in the league.

Exeter, which had a 5-3 lead after the second, and blew it open to 9-3 in the third. Sanford came back with three runs in the fourth, but Exeter got two, and they each brought a player across the plate in the fifth and final inning.

T he Cariboo’s Calling Wolf and Erna Zink: Deka Lake’s original ambassadors By Diana Forster Wolf Zink, and his wife, Erna, who passed away April 2, have always been extra-special citizens of Deka Lake. The young couple, barely into their twenties, emigrated from war-torn Germany in 1951, and raised their three Canadianborn children - Anita, Lorraine and Ronald - in Burnaby. In 1957, Wolf created his company that manufacturing electronic controls for Hawker Siddeley, the British-based aircraftmanufacturer,

while Erna worked alongside part time. When HawkerSiddeley realized that if anything happened to Wolf, they would be in serious trouble, they made him a buyout offer he “couldn’t possibly refuse,” and employed him as their managing director of research and development in 1969. It heralded the beginning of Wolf and Erna’s love affair with the Cariboo, when they became the first property-owners in Deka Lake’s brand-new subdivision. Since their interest caused many

colleagues to invest locally, they are without doubt Deka’s original ambassadors. The family spent all their free time in the large Pan-Abode home they built on Deka’s waterfront, with no electricity or telephone, and when the phone did come, it was a party line shared with Larry and Moira Davies. Ron remembers

being taught to shoot by the late expert marksman Charlie Womack. In 1975, Wolf resigned from Hawker-Siddeley and re-opened his own business building and programming computers, while Erna would spend summers here. Wolf also had his own flying school so he would fly to Deka, landing right at the cabin’s dock 90 minutes after notifying Erna he was on the way. After Wolf suffered his first heart attack in 1988, which culminated in seven bypass operations, Erna put her foot down and insisted on his

retirement. In 1990, the Zinks moved to Deka Lake permanently. Wolf notes regretfully that he was forced “to get rid of all his toys,” and has not flown since. The Zinks settled in comfortably. Erna was a staunch member of the local fire department Ladies Auxiliary and an exceptional baker who provided decadent European goodies for all of the auxiliary’s events. She was also a terrific knitter, with her creations going mainly to family members. Wolf spent his retirement years making wonderful, wooden rocking horses, dinosaurs and Harleys, and doll cradles. In 1994, Lorraine got married at what was then Oggie’s Resort. Wolf says all her guests stayed at the resort and were so impressed that several bought property nearby. While all their children, who have six children between them, have always lived on the Lower Mainland, each also has a home here, so the entire family is very much part of the Deka Lake

In November 2011, Wolf and Erna celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with all their family and many Deka friends. Wolf said sadly, “It was shortly after that Erna suffered a stroke, and later, while being treated in a physiotherapy hospital In

Vancouver, she suffered a massive heart attack which took her life.” A celebration of Erna’s life will take place at Deka Fire Hall on Aug. 4. Erna will be deeply missed by everyone at Deka, but Wolf, who turns 80 in June, continues as Deka’s original ambassador.

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!

LYTTON

Dan James May 26, 1949 - June 17, 2012 It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Dan Lytton on Sunday, June 17, 2012 after a courageous battle against cancer. Dan was born in Sheridan Wyoming, and spent his early years on the banks of the Powder River at the homestead ranch. In 1957 his family moved to the Flathead Valley in western Montana, where his love for horses and riding began. Dan attended Bozeman Agricultural College from 1967-1969. Many summers of working on his Uncle Loy Finlayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranch in Clinton changed the course of his life, as in Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words the â&#x20AC;&#x153;love for the Cariboo region and the people there drew me.â&#x20AC;? Immigrating to Canada in 1969, Dan became part of Pat and Charlie Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family at Loon Lake Ranch where he cowboyed and trained horses over several years. Dan then worked for local ranchers Don and Jackie Eden, and Chris and Helen Horn until buying his own ranch in 1975 at Sheridan Lake B.C. Dan shared his love for rodeo with his four children and made many close friends over his roping and rodeo years. In 2000 Dan was in a team roping accident that left him a paraplegic. Through courage, strength, and support from family and friends, Dan managed to keep his ranching ways and still run cattle on his range. In the summer he could be found in his tractor on the hay ďŹ eld or on his quad checking cows. He was often seen at the stock yards buying and selling cattle and travelling down Cariboo roads in his truck and trailer hauling livestock somewhere. Some of Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loves were; a cup of coffee, a good conversation, and beating a fellow poker player with a Royal Flush. A caring word or a bit of advice was often found. He was a man known to many as the cowboy everyone wanted to be. Dan was a great friend to all who have been a part of his life. Dan is survived by his loving wife Linda, his four children: Ty (Rae-Lynn) Lytton, Tana (Monte) Timmons, Jodie (Jock) Saville, Leon (Chelsea) Lytton, and their mother Pat Lytton; two step-children: Neil (Camille) Kernachan, Darcie (Daniel) Streek; eleven grandchildren: Tel, Denver, Sage, Alice, Emmy, Autumn, Skye, Eli, Kael, Austin and Wyatt; four siblings: Lee (Pam), Wayne, Sandy, Jackie and his mother Ida Rose; many nieces and nephews. Dan was predeceased by his father Jack Lytton. There will be a celebration of life held at Roe Lake on July, 1, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements. 250-395-3243 Condolences can be sent to the family at www.100milefuneralservice.com

Sage is gathered for opening prayers, blessings and other ceremonial purposes, which she notes is often placed in abalone shells for smudging with the smoke dispersed with a feather. The children recently joined the Elders on a trip to Farwell Canyon west of Williams Lake to pick sage, and the EAMS students participate in ceremonies with sage in their daily regimen. “They use it every morning for prayer before

At Gustafson Creek, some of the fun fishing activities included “spookem,” during which the children walked down the creek swishing the water with a stick to flush out fish while and others stood ready with dip nets downstream.

Awealth of knowledge is held in the skills and memories of the Canim Lake Band Elders, who help to pass down important traditions by connecting with the community’s children and youth. At various formal and informal gatherings, the Elders share their cultural experience, language, skills and stories with younger

generations. Elders Activity Centre program co-ordinator Shirley Fraser says these range from a story time at their centre for smaller children to larger events held at the Eliza Archie Memorial School (EAMS) or other community locations. “We have the Elders talk about the trap lines and talk about what they did when they were younger.” Says Elder Virginia

Archie: “Storytelling is very important for the youth to learn all traditional ways - food, language, medicine, hunting, fishing and trapping.” Elder Edna Sellars agrees. “It is important for the Elders and youth because the youth have to remember the traditions of our culture.” Recently the Elders and the younger generation have been gathering

together to make traditional moccasins, regalia, dream catchers, drums and rattles (small drums with rattle attachments), she explains. Fraser says she collects moose and deer antlers that are sliced into segments to make necklaces and ornaments. A recent outing to Gustafson Creek had Elders and children collecting eagle feathers scattered on the ground to use for

Good times had during traditional fishing outing CANIM… from page B1 Fraser adds Elder Elizabeth Pete showed the children how to clean and fillet the trout they caught, and then they all went back to set up the fish on racks in the Elders’ smokehouse. “They want the children to clean those fish as soon as they get them, and show them how to do it. Some are a bit little, so they get an adult to help them.” These young people learn the tradition that when anything is taken from nature, a gift of tobacco is put back in thanks, such as placing it in the waters where fish are harvested, she explains. “Tobacco was

something that was very precious back in history.” The Secwepemcstin language is another important heritage aspect to pass down to future generations. Even the youngest children learn in this traditional language, the Canim Lake Band is called Tsq’escenemc: The People of Broken Rock, and is a member of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) First Nation. Some Elders and children participate in the opening dance ceremonies at the annual Canim Lake Traditional Pow Wow, Fraser notes. Children as young as two years old pick berries with Elders, she says, and then older youth, who

attend school in town, have a chance in the evenings to learn how to make jelly. Pete says all of this cultural experience and information needs to be preserved for future generations. “As a person and a grandmother, I need to pass down any Secwepemc knowledge and skills to my grandchildren.” Everyone in the South Cariboo has an upcoming opportunity to experience some local First Nations culture and heritage, as the Canim Lake Band has invited the public to help them celebrate National Aboriginal Day on June 21 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at EAMS.

100 Mile Performing Arts Society awarded Monika Paterson Free Press

Marie Hooper, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum director, said she was overwhelmed by how well the troupe did at its first Zone competition in Williams Lake on May 24. In the end, the Forum received the Runner-up Production award. It was a very difficult decision that took more than 45 minutes to make, Hooper said, adding the committee has never had a decision take that long. It was down to the wire, she noted, with a hair of separation for choice of the winner. “First time out of

the gate and we won more than any other group in the zones - eight out of the 18 awards. It was a truly remarkable feat for our small group.” The other awards included: Outstanding Director, Hooper; Outstanding Actor, Nick Goshorn; Honourable Mention for Costume Design, Shelly Carrera; Outstanding Sound Design, Pat Friesen and Walt Sherry; Outstanding Makeup and Hair Design, Nicole Weir, Outstanding Props Design, Chris Hadden; and Outstanding Ensemble Acting, the Forum cast. Hooper said she wants to let 100 Mile House know what

a treasure it has in the Performing Arts Society. “Their generosity and talent is truly remarkable and that is one of the reasons I wanted them to go to the festival, so they can see how really remarkable they are. “They have not had anything to compare to.” Hooper noted Theatre BC executive director Vance Schneider came up to her right after the show and indicated the 100 Mile troupe had really raised the bar for main stage. “He was blown away.” On the last note, Hooper said, the audience members roared and leapt to their feet

and even though there were some reasons the troupe did not make it to main stage final, they were still remarkable, fantastic, and outstanding.

“100 Mile House and our communities should be very proud of what we can do. It is a whole cultural essence to the town that everyone should

be proud of.” Noting this is her last year to direct a fall production, an emotional Hooper says, “This is a gift that I will never forget.”

Pies sold like hotcakes GISELE POLISENO 250-395-9082 ggpoliseno@gmail.com

The Watch Lake/North Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department ( W L N G LV F D ) Auxiliary Bake and Garage Sale was a huge success. A couple of weeks prior to the event, several ladies got together at Helen Eagle’s residence to make 125 of their famous apple pies for the bake sale. On May 19, the Sonny Johnson Memorial Fire Hall (Hall #2) was busy with energetic auxiliary members setting up tables, arranging and pricing the garage sale items for the next day. Saturday morning was beautiful and the bargain hunters were at the door early. They were very pleased at the selection of items available to them, including a variety of home-baked goods. The barbecue was also a success, serving breakfast sandwiches and later hamburgers and hotdogs. Thanks go to Candace Tyler, who organized and supervised the barbecue, and her crew Vito Burtini, Lawrence Eagle, Alan Watrich, Joni Guenther and Donna Grimshaw for a job well done. At the end of the day, we made just over $3,000. The president of

100 Mile Hospice/Palliative Care 3,//6 $'$< Memorial Walk well received Monika Paterson Free Press

Fourteen people, including volunteers, attended the BC Bereavement Day Memorial Walk in 100 Mile House on May 27. The event began at the South Cariboo Health Centre with a brief education speech, poetry reading and a small candle lighting

ceremony, before attendees made their way down the path towards Centennial Park. It was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;quiet reflective walk,â&#x20AC;? says Sarah Smith of the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society, which sponsored the event. When they reached the park, there was a selection of small stones set

Sarah Smith

out for participants to write their loved ones names on. Remembrance cards were filled with, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I honoured and remembered you today.â&#x20AC;? Smith adds another reading was done before people found a special place along the creek to toss their stones into the water

in silent remembrance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quiet, powerful and emotional event was well received by participants and they are looking to do this again next year.â&#x20AC;? Anyone wanting help in dealing with a loss may contact the society at 250395-7680.

Farmers rock Lone Butte The Lone Butte Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Institute and Livestock Association (LBFILA) welcome folks to its booth at the Lone Butte Rocks Day on June 23. Information on membership and associated benefits and background will be available. The booth will also display small livestock in pens and have a fun contest and a raffle, all under a theme of agriculture. The LBFILA has its roots in the early days of shipping cattle and supplies for area ranches and farms via the Pacific Great Eastern Railway (PGE) from the early 1930s to about 1960, when the stockyards were dismantled. Back then, it was known as the Lone Butte Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Institute and Stockmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association.

Adult Concert Band members Gord Hutchinson, left, Dennis Tupman and Bruce Nicholson played the “Bugle Call Rag” to an applauding crowd during the benefit at the Martin Exeter Hall, June 10.

Big Band tunes enjoyed Monika Paterson Free Press

The Adult Concert Band performance was enjoyed by the 140-plus who attended and raised $1,288 for the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society. “We were really pleased with the community attendance,” says director Jack Fellner.

“The big band music went over really good. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the concert.” The band performed pieces from the ‘30s and ‘40s, and local singer Ingrid Mapson delighted the audience with three vocal performances by Ingrid Mapson. The band is now off for the summer, Fellner says, adding

they will resume practices in September. If folks would like more informa-

tion on the Adult Concert Band, they can contact Fellner at 250-395-2088.

Forests make up nearly two thirds of the province and are an important economic, social and environmental resource in the lives of many British Columbians. Over the last 13 years the outbreak of mountain pine beetle has affected an estimated 18.1 million hectares of forest throughout BC. The effects of the infestation continue to present major challenges to the forest industry and communities in BC’s central interior. The all-party Special Committee on Timber Supply was appointed by the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia to examine and make recommendations to address the loss of mid-term timber supply in the central interior. Specifically, the committee must consider recommendations that could increase timber supply. A discussion paper describing the issue and outlining possible options is available online to inform and focus public input. The committee will be holding a public hearing in 100 Mile House on Thursday, July 5. British Columbians may also participate by sending a written submission, or a video or audio file. The deadline for public input is Friday, July 20, 2012. For more information, including meeting dates, locations and times of public hearings and to view the discussion paper, please visit our website at: www.leg.bc.ca/timbercommittee OR CONTACT:

Canim Lake a Good Choice All Season

C

anim Lake is a large, deep water lake nestled along the western edge of the Cariboo Mountains. Several species of fish inhabit these waters including kokanee, rainbow trout and some giant lake trout.

Surface Area • 5,611 Hectares (13,864 Acres) Maximum Depth • 208.3 metres (684 feet) Elevation (ASL) • 772 metres (2,533 feet)

Fishing during the peak summer heat is usually best in deep water where the temperature is still cool. Anglers can still find some good fishing in shallow waters, but it is usually limited to the late evening and early morning, when the surface water has cooled. Kokanee are best fished with smaller gear, and red and yellow colours seem to be standard attractor colours. Go down deep with Lyman Lures plugs and 3 colours lead line. A gold / yel-

men as the insects swim down the water column after visiting the surface for air. It is important to mimic this natural migration from the surface to the bottom.

Try using a waterboatman pattern with a sinking line and long leader. Cast the line out and as the line disappears under the surface it will pull the fly under the water. When this happens, start to retrieve the line using short, quick pulls trying to reproduce the swimming motion of this bug.

Canim Lake is nice well into the fall. Anglers can find some good fishing in deeper waters. As the weather cools off after the summer heat, outings can become more productive. Canim Lake has been stocked in the past, both with rainbow trout and kokanee. The stocking program for this lake ended in 1998, however, and the fishery in Canim

Among flyfishers, waterboatman patterns are popular in the fall, when these insects become quite active. These bugs can be a major food source for the fish. Rainbow trout will generally feed on waterboat-

rom 100 Mile House, follow Highway 97 north to Canim Lake Road and turn right (east). Follow this road for about 35 km to the south-western tip of the lake. The road continues north along the western shore of the lake, and there is a second road—Canim Lake South, that winds along the southern shore of this lake, to Mahood Lake.

You may not be able to count on the fish biting, but at least you can count on your outboard from Yamaha.

Here are the answers to the June 15th Cariboo Connector ‘Challenge Yourself’ Page.

Deka community saddened by passing of longtime residents DEKA… from page B4 president who passed away in 2003, went to high scorer Glenda’s 844 points. Sad passings The community will be sorry to learn that Helen Bertrand passed away in early June. She and her husband, Larry, moved from Deka to Kamloops several years ago. Sincere sympathy is extended to Larry and family. Sad news also includes the loss of Dave Tute of Higgins Lake, a longtime Safeway employee, who passed away at home in early June. Details are sketchy but Dave appears to have been in his mid50s. Condolences are extended to his many friends and colleagues. Rodeo time Don’t miss the 63rd

SPLIT LEVEL TBM1086

Ask an Expert: How do I know if I need to clean my eavestroughs? 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.

Reminders for 108 Mile By Reg Berrington

Remember the speed limit is only 50 km/h in the 108. Please take care on our roads because at the end of June, children will be out of school and moving around. There have been a number of grass fires in the 108 that have required attendance from the

108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department. We have been very fortunate no one has been hurt and no damage has been done to buildings. If you have any information or news for future articles in the 108 column, please contact me at 250791-9235, or e-mail to berrington services@shaw.ca.
