Three more South Cariboo organizations are the recipients of a total of $42,300 in provincial gaming grants announced so far this year. The 100 Mile House & District Historical Society was recently awarded $21,000.

Society president Tom Rutledge says the funds will be put toward some fencing repairs and maintenance and will also top up summer student wages. Noting the current federal grant only covers minimum wage for a few students, he explains the society typically boosts them up to a

better rate. “Without the gaming grants, we would not open, or if we did open, we’d be in tough straits. Other than donations from tourists, we have no other money coming in.” The 100 Mile House Local of the British Columbia Special Olympics received two grants, $3,600 earlier this year and


another $2,700 in the most recent round. Board president Denise Barker says the $6,300 will be used to send the local athletes to Langley for next year’s summer games, as well as for the group’s annual trip to Quesnel for the Gold Pan Tournament. See GRANTS… page 5

Eleven members of the local Gold Rush Grannies marched through downtown 100 Mile House to raise money for, and awareness of, the plight of grandmothers in Africa who are caring for children whose parents died due to the AIDS epidemic.

Gold Rush Grannies making a difference Ken Alexander Free Press

Eleven Gold Rush Grannies marched in 100 Mile House recently, as part of the Third Annual Stride to Turn the Tide national walk. Spokesperson Wendy Hamblin says the national walk refers to turning the tide against AIDS in Africa.

Carrying a banner, the Gold Rush Grannies mustered in the Safeway parking lot, walked along Birch Avenue and stopped at the Save-On-Foods parking. Hamblin says four of the members continued their walk in the Exeter Valley to complete a 10-kilometre trek. They included Caroline Sharpe, Chris Kilpatrick,

Kathleen Waldron and Hamblin. All of the money they raised will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation to support grandmothers in Africa who are caring for children whose parents have died because of the AIDS epidemic. So far, the Gold Rush Grannies raised $1,575 from

this walk, and donations are still coming in. Those who wish to donate can do so online at www.grandmothers c a m p a i g n . o rg / e v e n t s / national-events/stride-toturn-the-tide, or leave a cash donation at Purple Zebra in Owen Square across from the 100 Mile House Branch Library.

to everyone who attended the memorial gathering for Peter Kristensen on July 14. It was a beautiful day and a very meaningful time for everyone. A special thank you to Marianne Van Osch, Wayne Venos, Grace Buse, Art Dumaresq and Margo Wagner for their sharing of some very special memories and funny stories. We also wish to thank two of Peter’s long time friends, Patty Wong of Merritt and Ava Chang of Vancouver, for making a special effort to be with us. We are deeply appreciative to Margo Wagner and the members of the Canim Lake Community Club for providing the delicious baked goods and the tables; Grace Buse for her special raisin pies (Peter’s favourite); Garth and Janet Lily for the use of their boat to scatter Peter’s ashes; Anne Johansen for supplying the dishes, utensils, and bedding, which allowed Ingelise and her friend, Anita Larson, to stay in the house; and Eric Klassen and Sheila Nelson for getting the grounds ready. On a more personal note - thanks to everyone for their concern for Ingelise when she had a medical problem after the memorial and to Eric Klassen and Sheila Nelson for getting her to Vancouver for her flight home. God Bless you all. Ingelise Rasmussen and Gordon Kellett

Dustin Karolat cycled more than 300 kilometres in one day from Vernon to 100 Mile House. While successfully breaking his personal record for a one-day cycle, he was also raising money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Cycling for Heart and Stroke Foundation: 15 hours from Vernon to 100 Mile House Ken Alexander Free Press

Leaving Vernon at 6 a.m., Dustin Karolat pedalled his bike 317 kilometres before stopping at the South Cariboo Visitor Centre in 100 Mile House at 8:45 p.m. recently. The lean 23-yearold, with long blond hair and piercing blue eyes, was obviously tired; his legs were tired and his body was shaking while he walked around to cool off. The slight smile on his face grew to a full grin as he enjoyed the satisfaction of making his goal of cycling 300 km in one day. His previous best was 247 km. Karolat says he came to 100 Mile, because when he was looking at a map, it gave him the correct distance for the trip. “I wish I had looked at the topographical map a little harder, though,” he said with a smile. “It’s 800 metres higher here than in Vernon and there’s quite a few ups and downs in between, so I knew I would be climbing hills.” He says the toughest climb was coming out of Kamloops.

“It is a long climb and it was really hot there.” Karolat says he encountered rain at the beginning of the trip and dealt with the heat through Kamloops, but he had a tail wind from Cache Creek up to the 100 Mile House, which helped him through the last stretch. As luck would have it, his bike had a flat tire with only 20 km to go before he reached his goal of the magic 300-km mark. “It tacked a little more time on, so that was a bit unfortunate.

I had hoped to make it in 12 hours, but then I realized it was mostly uphill, so I’m happy I made it in under 15.” Noting he has mountain biked for a while, Karolat says he has only been road cycling for a year, with his first longdistance trip – 3,700 km — being from Invermere to Toronto last fall. While he didn’t fundraise for the cross-Canada trip, Karolat was raising money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation on his trip from Vernon to 100 Mile House.

“My grandpa has had a couple of heart attacks, so it’s close to home.” Noting he is going to continue training, he said it’s unlikely he’ll try to cycle this far again. Karolat just received his degree in biology but hasn’t been able to find a job yet, so he is working at a lumber mill right now. His immediate goal, however, was to drive up to Quesnel with his road crew – his mom and grandma — and collapse on the couch at his mom’s house after a home-cooked meal.

Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall. Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

Festival of Arts wraps up year Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

100 Mile Festival of the Arts had its annual general meeting on June 11, and after the election of officers, not much has changed.

Mary Ann Robertson remains as president for 2012/13 and Marilyn Buyar retains her position as vice-president. Frances Higginson will serve as secretary and Annie McKave is treasurer.

Robertson says the dates of April 15-26 have tentatively been set for the 2013 Festival and plans are already coming together for it. “It’s looking promising for adjudicators. We start looking this

early because if you don’t, you don’t get them.” On June 23, Festival of Arts held an appreciation tea for several of its volunteers. They were treated to strawberry shortcake and tea.

B.C. eyes motorcycle power limits By Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Liberal government has followed through on its promise to regulate motorcycle helmets, with restrictions on the horsepower available to new riders coming in the next year. This spring, Justice Minister Shirley Bond announced the new helmet regulation went in to effect June 1, which requires rid-

ers to wear helmets that meet Canadian and international safety standards. Many of the minimalcoverage “beanie” helmets favoured by some bikers will soon be subject to a $138 ticket. Regulations will also require passengers to have their feet on foot pegs or floorboards while riding. Children who can’t reach the foot pegs will no longer be allowed as

Reduce the risk of rabies this summer With summer upon us, many people are heading to the great outdoors, so it’s important to know that activities like these can result in contact with bats, the primary carrier of the rabies virus in British Columbia. Bats can fly into poorly sealed cabins and homes, or roost in attic spaces. Between four and eight per cent of the bats that are tested after coming into contact with people are found to have the rabies virus. “If you come into contact with live or dead bats it is very important to avoid touching them,� said Jennifer Jeyes, Interior HealthAuthority (IHA) communicable disease specialist. “Parents should remind their children not to play with or touch bats.� Last year, 24 people in the region were treated for potential exposure to rabies. Treatment, involving a two-week period of vaccinations, is most effective when

administered as soon as possible after exposure. Without treatment to prevent its onset, rabies is almost always fatal.

The IHA advises that all contact with bats should be taken seriously. “Anyone who has handled a bat should contact their Public Health Unit or their physician right away,� said Jeyes. “Bats have tiny sharp teeth and claws, so their scratches or bites are not always visible, and in some cases, it can take weeks or even months for symptoms to appear. Early treatment is essential to prevent the disease from progressing - it’s very important to get checked out as soon as possible.�

Prevention: • Do not touch live or dead bats. • Make your home or cabin “bat proof.â€? Keep doors and windows closed, make sure window screens don’t have any

• If you have a pet dog, cat or ferret, make sure they are vaccinated regularly against rabies. Pets that were born and raised in B.C. pose a very low risk of transmitting rabies to humans; however, vaccinating your pets will protect them from rabies.

holes and keep the attic area free of bats by keeping all vents properly screened and by closing off other openings. • If you find a live bat in a room of your home, open the window and close interior doors until the bat leaves. • Seek professional bat-control advice (from a pest control or wildlife specialist) if your work place or home is inhabited by bats. • Avoid locations or activities where bats are likely to be found (e.g. caves).

Bitten or scratched: • Thoroughly wash the wounds with soap and water. • Contact your local Public Health Unit or family doctor immediately. • Call a wildlife or pest control company to capture the bat. If trying to capture the bat yourself, avoid contact by wearing leather gloves, a hat, long sleeves and long pants. • Safely contain the bat in a secure covered container to prevent others from being exposed. Keep the bat in a safe location until Public Health can arrange to pick it up and test it for rabies.

notes this year, it has already responded to 2,313 by the end of June. While the gaming funds don’t come close to covering the overall costs of running the centre, Lewis explains it is

nevertheless critical to its survival. “The need is constantly rising, with the economic situation. Any support our community can give us to keep our doors open is much appreciated.�

Travelling abroad: • Be aware of the risk of rabies in the country you are visiting. • If you were bitten by an animal and started on the rabies vaccine, keep all documentation you were provided. It will need to be reviewed by Public Health when you return home. • Note the type of clinic or hospital you visited. This information will be used by Public Health to determine if you received the same standard of protection you would have received at home.

Lost & Found FOUND: 2 dogs at Marble Canyon Provincial Campsite Thursday July 19. Dogs are very friendly, well behaved and appear to have been well looked after. My guess (judging by their ribs) is they have not seen a decent meal for 10 days or so. Email me with a description and we will see that they get back to their rightful owner. LOST: Mansfield inspected walking cane. Brown. Accidentally left in shopping cart at Safeway on July 6. Owner is in desperate need of it. Please call 250-593-4650. LOST: Tabby cat.

Local author donating portion of earnings to Cops For Kids Bike Ride Ken Alexander Free Press

Lone Butte author Jonathon McCormick is donating 60 per cent (his earnings) from the sale of his first novel, Wyoming Secrets, A ‘J’ Team Novel, to a worthy cause. The suspense thriller follows Secret Service investigator Jessica Fukishura and her handpicked team of cowboy agent Rebecca Simpson and hacker Elisabeth Peltowski on assignment in trendy spots all over the world. The book, which sells for $24.95, is available at Nuthatch Books in 100 Mile House.

Jonathon McCormick From Aug. 1 to Sept. 5, McCormick is donating his earnings to former 100 Mile House RCMP Const. Roy Davidson who is participating in the upcoming Cops For Kids Bike Ride, Sept. 6-16. His progress can be followed at www. Davidson, who

was a consultant on McCormick’s book, served in 100 Mile for many years. “He gave greatly to the community in both policing and community events, such as the 100 Mile Nordic Ski Society,” the local author says. “Roy gave to 100 Mile House for years and it is my turn to give back.” McCormick says he will tally the numbers from his sales at Nuthatch Books on Sept. 6 and write Davidson a cheque and post a copy on Facebook. “If you would like

to contribute to Roy’s six-day ride and Cops for Kids Bike Ride, this may be a great way to participate.”

Happy BC Day!

This continuing series of articles highlights the most common invasive plants found in the South Cariboo, and how to identify them, with information and photos provided by the Cariboo Regional District. Hawkweed No. 6 The Hawkweed infestation is considered severe throughout the region. This very aggressive invasive plant has an ability to form dense mats, which can choke out native and desirable vegetation very rapidly. Of the 13 invasive Hawkweeds, one species has bright orange flowers, while the others have yellow flowers. The colour of the orange Hawkweed flower makes it stand out from other plants when in bloom. The brilliant red-orange flower grows in clusters at the top of leafless stems. The entire stem and leaves are covered in small, stiff, black hairs. The invasive yellow Hawkweeds can generally be distinguished from native yellow species by checking for leaves on the stem of the plant. Most invasive yellow Hawkweed plants have leafless stems, while the native yellow species have leaves along the stem. Hawkweed can establish quickly by seed and above- and below-ground growth, so early detection is critical. Once sprouted Hawkweed rapidly spreads to a dense mat that can be extremely difficult to control. Small patches can be dug up if all parts of the root are removed. The smallest fragment can sprout a new plant, so this method may need to be repeated annually. Trimming or mowing is not advised, as it strongly encourages vegetative growth. Applying a fertilizer containing higher amounts of sulphur or nitrogen has proven effective for up-to-moderate infestations. For larger, dense infestations, the careful use of herbicides can effectively control Hawkweed. Look for herbicides containing active ingredients including Picloram, 2-4-D, Dicamba, Aminopyralid or Clopyralid. Always read the herbicide label before use and follow the application instructions.
