Province’s books bashed by Auditor General Carole Rooney Free Press

The Legislative Assembly Management Committee (LAMC) has come under added scrutiny since British Columbia Auditor General John Doyle’s recent audit pointed to “substantial irregularities” in the Legislature’s financial accounting and “poor governance.” Among Doyle’s

numerous concerns were the committee’s failure to implement his recommendations to improve accountability made five years ago, and internal control deficiencies “so serious and pervasive” he was unable to conclude if the balance sheets were

correct. “... the Legislative Assembly is falling well short of the basic financial management practices established for the rest of government.” The B.C. Liberal government reported ending the fiscal year with a defi-

says it’s a case of “two opinions” on the matter - Doyle’s and Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s. “The government of British Columbia is using practices that are acceptable, used by other provinces, and we have a class triple-A rating.

That’s about as far as I can go with it because I’m not a bookkeeper or an auditor.” The finance department has experts working for them, but Doyle’s suggestions will always be See AUDITOR… page 5

cit of $1.84 billion, but Doyle states the recorded deficit would have been more than $500 million higher, at $2.36 billion, had the report been prepared under accepted standards. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett

Although he was born in Dawson Creek on July 6, 1982, Olympic rowing silver medallist Gabriel Bergen (Gabe) has always called 100 Mile House his home town. His pride of being from 100 Mile was never more obvious than it was when the Canadian men’s eight crew was interviewed by Brian Williams on CTV after the men out-rowed Great Britain

in the last 250 metres in the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games to capture the silver medals. While his crew mates spoke during the interview, Gabe was quiet and unassuming, but just before the interview came to an end, he held his medal up and shouted, “100 Mile!” Bob and Marilyn Bergen moved their boys Rob, Karel and Gabe to 100 Mile House in 1986 when Gabe was four years old. He attended Mile 108 Elementary School from kinder-

garten to Grade 7 and then the family went to Mexico for a year, where Bob and Marilyn, who were both teachers, taught the boys. Then Gabe went to 100 Mile House Junior Secondary for Grade 9 and then he was off to Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School and graduated in 2000. Marilyn says her son’s interest in sports developed at an early age, as he participated in community soccer, hockey, all school sports and the 100 Mile Nordics cross-country ski club.

She adds he benefited greatly from the help and support of his volunteer coaches. “Also as a family, we have always encouraged Gabe and his brothers to be actively involved in healthy sporting pursuits for the development of their physical fitness and the joy of being part of a team.” Many local residents would have fond memories of Gabe as he grew up in the community.

100 Mile Free Press Wednesday, August 8, 2012

SHORT TA K E S Removing mining permit workload The B.C. Liberal government has achieved an 84 per cent reduction in the 2011 mining permit backlog, two months before the target completion date set out in the BC Jobs Plan. In September 2011, the province identified the backlog of Notices of Work, along with Land Act authorizations and Water Act authorizations, as bottlenecks in the current review process for natural resource development activities. The 229 Notice of Work applications that were backlogged as of September 2011 have been reduced to 37 applications. The government committed to reducing the time it takes for businesses to get decisions on their applications, while upholding its high environmental standards and requirement for First Nations consultation. Now, the government will focus on reducing the average turnaround time for a decision to 60 days for Notices of Work.

Freedom Route 5 convoy members posed with local veterans in front of “Old Pokey,” a 1941 GMC K18 communications vehicle, during their visit to the Legion in 100 Mile House on July 29. The convoy of vintage military vehicles made a brief stop here on its way to Fairbanks, Alaska to commemorate the building of the Alaska Highway and raise awareness of veterans. Armed Forces veteran John Hawthorne was driving a 1941 GMC K18, communications vehicle, or signal van, nicknamed “Old Pokey.” There was a 1943 Field Artillery Tractor that carried ammunition and it was towing an ammunition trailer. Australians Jim and Sandy Sewell drove their restored 1943 Chevy Wallace van that took a month to ship over from Perth. They have also

toured all over Europe with their van. The convoy left Chilliwack on July 28, making stops at the Ashcroft and Clinton Legions before making their overnight stop at member’s home at Green Lake. Legion manager Leah Nielsen said she was overwhelmed with the response. “It’s nice to see veterans reflecting and talking amongst themselves about their experiences.”

Group gets close to million-dollar funding boost Consumers will be receiving ‘Beef 101’ education in their grocery stores Carole Rooney Free Press

The Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC (IAF) will contribute up to $2,138,217 in federalprovincial funding toward projects to help boost the Agri-food industry. The British Columbia Cattlemen’s Association’s

(BCCA) Ranching Task Force will get almost $1 million, while the remaining $1.16 million will be split between 24 other projects contracted between Jan. 1 and April 30. The BCCA’s Consumer Education and Research Program (CERP) will receive $825,158 and its Strategic Economic

Assessing of the BC Beef Cattle Value Chain will get $153,990, to be spread across three years. BCCA president Kevin Boon says the association has been planning projects since the funding was originally announced at its 2010 annual general meeting, but just received the first influx in January.

The projects aim at increasing consumer interest in where food comes from and how it was raised, to provide the B.C. beef industry an opportunity for growth. He says the idea is to boost consumer confidence in beef to spur more industry growth, including in the South Cariboo,

where cattle production is integral to sustaining the economy and local producer families. The CERP project includes BCCA’s largest program, Behind the Beef, which Boon adds his organization is “very excited” about. See CATTLEMEN… page 4

Funds benefit schools and communities Carole Rooney Free Press

The Ministry of Education has announced its latest funding to support greater community use of schools through its Community Connections program in 2012/13. It’s the final intake for the one-time, $10-million grants program launched in 2005. School districts, in partnership with local governments, can submit applications for projects up to $12,500 from the

provincial total of $800,000. School District #27 chair Will Van Osch says there’s an opportunity to apply for an extra $5,000 on top of that for certain projects. The funding will be available for projects that increase the use of K-12 school space to provide community services, including upgrades to neighbourhood learning centres. “We are looking for projects. We don’t have anything identified, but we have until October [to apply].”

The long-term plan the SD27 board will roll out in September for public consultations makes choosing a project somewhat more difficult, he explains, so many ideas are being discussed, but are awaiting decisions. “We’ve been quite good at being able to spend moneys when they become available. So, I’m almost sure we’ll find a project to spend it on.” There a “good chance” some of these will be in the South End, Van Osch says, adding the district

was able to split the funding across the district last time it came through. He notes some more remote areas have fewer spaces or services available in their communities, such as recreation. “Maybe Bridge Lake or Horse Lake [elementary schools].... At the rural schools, there seems to be a bit higher need.” The school board must use caution not to create higher costs down the road, such as larger operational demands, when it

CATTLEMEN… from page 3 “It’s gone beyond our wildest expectations. Some of the reach on it, where it might go, is quite astounding.” The program aims to educate consumers on a one-to-one basis directly in urban grocery stores, 65 per cent of them in the Lower Mainland, he notes, and the rest elsewhere in B.C. and the Northwest United States. Food buyers are informed about how beef is produced, farm animal care and the positive effects ranching has on the environment, Boon says, adding many have returned for the next store visit with more questions. “[It’s] trying to put a more realistic face on where their food comes from, rather than just the meat counter.” The program began last August in anticipation of the promised funding, he adds, and origi-

nally aimed at having 10-12 educators doing about 400 in-store visits a year. “The uptake by the chains [of stores] has been phenomenal.... We ended up [with] up to 28 educators and we’re scheduled to do 2,000 in-store visits; we’re in 153 different stores.” He explains the vision now is for the program to eventually target global markets, such as Asia. Closer to home, they are looking to

get the program into schools for young, upcoming consumers and also to certain larger fairs and exhibitions. Behind the Beef is currently funded to run until March 2014, when Boon says he hopes the food retailers will pick up the slack. “The whole idea behind this is trying to make something that will be selfsustaining once this funding is gone.” Boon says the pro-

gram has already received national attention and other provinces are showing interest in emulating the program model. The other, strategic economic assessment program involves working with the abattoirs, feed lots, Thompson Rivers University and individual beef producers to develop a strategy to link current information on the industry throughout all sectors of the beef value chain in B.C.

uses one-off funding for new projects, the chair says. “We’ve tried to look for vulnerable students and things that work with Community Connections, and whether [the project is] able to augment other pieces of funding that come forward.” Some examples of eligible projects include sharing school space with community organizations, offices, services or activities; childcare programs; family resource centres; community kitchens or gardens; and intergenerational programs or services for seniors. He notes the grant is “not a lot” of money to implement projects with, but will be put to good use if the district can get it.

That’s all I’ve got to say about that.” The LAMC has since released a statement that it will implement all recommendations made by the Auditor General since 2007. BC Conservative Leader John Cummins says the committee’s commitment to fixing the problems five years after they were identified is “disappointing,” and a knee-jerk reaction to the negative press reaction and public outcry. “They are scandalized by the shoddy bookkeeping, and I think rightly so.... “When the media focuses on an issue, at times you can get some action, and this one certainly caught the [attention] of the public.” Cummins adds the “real troubling” aspect is the “sloppy” legislative accounting practices that left half a billion dollars out of the projected deficit. “That’s not chicken feed, and it’s definitely not chicken feed when you look at the total deficit. It wasn’t that they were out by five per cent.... You have to wonder: ‘how can you be that far out on the numbers and not know it?” The PublicAccounts

for the first and last fiscal years in the past decade under the B.C. Liberals show legislative outlays (called Vote 1) have “skyrocketed” by 65.2 per cent, Cummins explains. The $64 million a year spent in the Vote 1 budget is “not an insignificant amount of money” for legislature management and constituency salaries and expenses. Compared to lower budget increases for K-12 education (16 per cent) and justice for “protection of persons and property” (2.9 per cent), he notes it was “staggering” to see child welfare spending has decreased by 10.4 per cent since 2001/02. “Child welfare should be at the top of our priority list.” The committee’s July 31 statement also indicates that beginning in October, quarterly MLA expenses will be post-

ed online to provide more transparency. Says Cummins: “The proposals they put forward are reasonable, now we have

to see if they actually do what they say; the proof will be in the pudding. “They’ve been addicted to spend-

ing ... if you’re going to eliminate deficit, you’ve got to control spending, and at the same time increase revenues.”

Government employees strike in 100 Mile

Carole Rooney Free Press

Provincial employees in the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union (BCGEU) walked off the job yesterday (Aug. 7) for a one-day strike to back contract demands. Staff from the 100 Mile House offices of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource O p e r a t i o n s (MFLNRO) and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) were outside the Service BC building picketing on Tuesday. Noting talks have broken down, BCGEU provincial executive Lori Joaquin of Quesnel was on site supporting the job action in 100 Mile House. “We are not at the bargaining table right now. They need to improve their offer and come back. If the recent oneday strikes don’t kick start negotiations, more strikes are planned, she explained. “We’ve adopted a targeted strike strategy, at least for now. There will be other activity in August, and expect it to ramp up considerably once we get to

Motorists were tooting their horns and hollering in support as staff at the Service BC government offices in 100 Mile House were picketing yesterday. The one-day BCGEU strike protested the breakdown in contract negotiations and reinforced union demands. September.” 100 Mile House has the only MoTI office in the province that participated in the one-day strike. Early in July, three government liquor warehouses, including one in Kamloops, held similar job action after the union rejected an offer of a two per cent wage increase this year and 1.5 per cent next year. The union states wages are the key issue, and it wants a 3.5 per cent increase in the first year of the new contract and a cost-of-living increase the following year. Numerous passing motorists on Highway 97 honked their horns to show their support to the picketers, and BCGEU

Region 4 co-ordinator Aaron Ekman described the community response as “overwhelmingly positive” “It’s speculation on my part, but I think it’s got something to do with frustrations with this provincial government, and they’re happy somebody is taking a stand.” While the picketers did not attempt to stop anyone from entering the government agent’s building, Ekman said most people asked what was going on and then volunteered to come back the next day. The collective agreement for the BCGEU expired March 3, 2012, leaving its 25,000 members

working without a contract since then. The BCGEU also includes employees working in hospital services, social work and government administrative and support services. Joaquin says she sits on the bargaining committee, and the

union has provided “many ways” the government could meet its demands, but so far this hasn’t happened. “We’re trying to get government’s attention and get them back to the table. We want a deal, and we want a fair one.”

he fact that Gabe Bergen won a silver medal for Canada in men’s eight rowing at the 2012 London Olympic Summer Games should serve as inspiration for everyone who lives in small-town rural British Columbia. We don’t mean awe-inspiring in the terms of how we think about Terry Fox and Rick Hansen and the difficult journeys they experienced to bring awareness to people dealing with debilitating diseases or disabilities. However, Gabe has proven people can grow up in small communities and still climb on the podium of the world’s most significant athletic stage. However, he didn’t do it all on his own. First, he has great genetics and his parents Bob and Marilyn gave him that gift. Bob rowed in the 1976 Montreal Olympic Summer Games, where he finished 13th in Men’s Coxed Pairs. Both of Gabe’s brothers, Karel and Rob, are excellent athletes. Rob played basketball for Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops before heading down to finish his varsity career at the University of Victoria. Karel is an accomplished mixed martial arts competitor. Gabe was raised and educated in 100 Mile House and he played school sports and soccer, hockey and cross-country skied. Marilyn says a lot of volunteer coaches from 100 Mile House nurtured Gabe’s athletic skills and guided him to set and achieve goals. He provided the rest of the fuel – his burning desire and determination to excel at every sport he attempted. His first love was basketball and he trained relentlessly to perfect the game. It took him to Kamloops to play varsity ball, but he wanted more, so he decided to follow in his dad’s footsteps. Within two years, Gabe achieved his goal of making the national rowing team, and with continued hard work and dedication, he finally won an Olympic medal. Too often we hear the complaint that there’s nothing to do in this town when we should be setting goals to make something happen. The fact is the vast majority of us will never make the Olympics, but we can set lofty goals and be determined to work hard to make ourselves better people. Thanks Gabe for setting the example and thanks to everyone who helped him become the man he is today.

It’s time to end the welfare era Some claim that governments can reduce poverty by raising welfare rates, but welfare is not the way to reduce poverty. Our only real gains against poverty have come from getting more low-income adults working. We need to raise employment rates, not welfare rates. Work is good for people and good for society. Employment is the most likely path out of poverty for most adults on welfare, but if we want to move more low-income citizens to prosper, welfare is part of the problem, not the solution. Welfare competes with wages. When welfare is attractive compared to working, fewer people will work and pay taxes to support more who aren’t working. This is unsustainable for the economy and for government budgets. We nearly reached this tipping point 20 years ago when about one in eight Canadians was on welfare. This came about because of recession, labour market restructuring and an increase in single-parent families. In response, governments restructured benefits to make work more attractive and beefed up employment services. The result has been lower family welfare dependency, steadily declining poverty rates, and a modestly


GUEST SHOT more inclusive society. The welfare system itself, however, is still intact. There are tens of thousands of adults on welfare who could work but do not. Too many children still grow up in workless households and never develop a work ethic. This is the case even in areas of the country with strong labour demand. The key weakness of the welfare system is it pays people not to work. Over the long term, people tend to do what they are paid to do. The availability of welfare has, over the years, helped create a class of citizens who are not only chronically workless, but are outside the boundaries of the labour force. To change, we need to leave behind the notion that fighting poverty is only about giving money to the poor. How people get their money is important. The best way for a person to get money is to earn it, and the best way to reduce poverty is for more low-income adults to work. To achieve this, we will need more rigorous work expectations of

people asking for welfare. Governments should protect entry-level jobs in the economy because these are the jobs welfare recipients need most. Welfare itself should be stripped to a basic subsistence benefit, with supplements and supports available from work-friendly programs. Help for a low-income worker costs less than welfare for a non-worker, and produces better outcomes. We will need better employment services that would pay long-term dividends. When voluntary dependency is gone, we can eliminate most of welfare’s complex, demeaning rules. The welfare system was created with good intentions to fight deep poverty. Because it exists, there is virtually no involuntary destitution in Canada. As a tool against poverty, however, it has failed. Canada could be a country where effort and reward still count, but where every adult who contributes is part of a community of citizens. Moving closer to that goal means leaving the welfare era behind, and moving on to a more modern and dynamic social policy. Rick August is author of Taming Two Dragons: Poverty, Welfare and the Future of Income Support.

Pipeline posturing doesn’t help E NTERTAINMENT Why is BC Hydro Letters to the editor

purchasing power it doesn’t need? To the editor: The Vancouver Sun recently reported how BC Hydro has been shutting down its own turbines. Why? It’s because the Crown corporation has been forced to purchase power from independent power producers (IPPs) in British Columbia, such as run-of-river and wind power. BC Hydro has signed over 100 contracts to purchase power from IPPs, whether or not it needs the power in B.C. So instead of using its own cheap hydro power sources, BC Hydro is paying many times the market rate for power from IPPs it doesn’t need, and can’t export at a profit. BC Hydro owes close to $42 billion for power contracts with IPPs, which extend 30 or more years into the future. Instead of spending that money on its own new plants or upgrades, BC Hydro will pay that money to private power companies, many of which are owned out of province. This is for power that may not be needed by BC Hydro, and may have to be exported at a loss.

Former BC Hydro CEO Dave Cobb said last year the B.C. Liberal government policies will cost BC Hydro hundreds of millions of dollars by forcing it to purchase unneeded power from IPPs. BC Hydro’s debt is large and growing. B.C.’s Auditor General recently criticized BC Hydro’s bookkeeping, which defers billions of dollars in costs to the future. The recently approved Kokish River run-of-river project on Vancouver Island has been criticized for its impact on fish habitat. This is to produce expensive power sold to publicly-owned BC Hydro that it does not actually need. For more information, search the Internet for “Hydro awash in private power” at www.vancou story.html?id=6605915 and “BC Hydro head predicts end” at www. couversun/news/ westcoastnews/story. html?id=9c7f6e08-e6b04374-a763-f1c2b5190ec6.

VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September. Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the British Columbia government’s notice to cross-examine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipeline operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan. That’s all fine, and to be expected after Premier Christy Clark’s highprofile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax. Clark’s demands for “worldleading” safety and spill response, as well as meeting the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides. Pipeline opponents seized on Clark’s suggestion a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it for B.C. NDP Leader Adrian Dix picked up the theme as he conducted his own belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition. There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark made the “fair share”


BC VIEWS demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The premier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark this spring. All this political theatre doesn’t amount to much. I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed, mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy United States foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500year eco-experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now. Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the TransMountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years.

The competing expansion proposal by Trans-Mountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable? Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate Bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Future energy: bridging to clean fusion power To the editor: Stephen Hawking is universally acknowledged as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Albert Einstein. A couple years ago, when he was asked to name the most pressing scientific challenge facing humanity, Hawking promptly answered it was the quest to produce commercially viable electricity from clean nuclear fusion - the same energy source that powers the Sun. Unlike today’s nuclear reactors, fusion-powered reactors could be safely turned off in an instant

and would be so safe they could be located in the middle of heavily populated urban areas, right where the majority of electricity demand happens to be. Imagine a power plant much, much smaller than Burrard Thermal that could safely and cleanly power the entire Lower Mainland and beyond, without any harmful emissions, radiation or risk of meltdown. Unfortunately, commercially viable fusion power remains stubbornly elusive and the scientists and engineers working on the

problem estimate it will not be a reality for at least 30 to 50 years, if not 100 years or more from now. That’s why the clean,

renewable energy sources we can develop today are so important because they are going to bridge us from a world dependent

on dirty coal (the world’s major energy source for electricity generation today) to a world that might one day be pow-

ered by safe, clean fusion power. Mike Taylor Port Moody

Premier’s Enbridge stand supported To the editor: I am so impressed by the stand taken by Premier Christy Clark on preserving, protecting and promoting British Columbia interests, despite being pressured into signing the so-called National Energy Strategy, which is so un-national, if we do not care of our environmental issues. Look at what happened in the United States, for all the spills, for

business interests - it has ruined the environment, which we can never afford or allow. I also offer myself to BC Liberal Party to contest the Surrey-Tyne Head provincial MLA, seat in 2013, where Dave Hayer has refused to participate due to personal reasons. I strongly feel we need to support the premier in her vision of Beautiful British Columbia.

For the first time since her becoming the premier, B.C. is in safe hands. I’m initiating a “B.C. safe with Christy” campaign on Aug. 15 from Surrey, which will ensure her win in 2013, including forming a B.C. Liberal government in 2013. Vikram Bajwa Former mayoralty candidate Surrey

Newsbeat Around the province Firefighters rescue pets KELOWNA - A house is in bad condition, but the owner’s pets are safe after a house fire on Sumac Road. Kelowna fire crews responded to a report of a structure fire at 199 Sumac Rd. East at 1:37 p.m. Saturday. A total of three engines, a command vehicle, a rescue vehicle and 15 firefighters, along with RCMP and ambulance personnel attended the blaze. Residents were not home at the time of the fire; however, their dog and cat were both inside the house. Firefighters managed to rescue both pets. According to Henry Roelofs, platoon captain of the Kelowna Fire Department, the fire appeared to have started at the rear of the house in a covered patio and extended into the main roof of the house. The first attack crew was able to quickly extinguish the majority of the fire, but it took two hours to find and extinguish all hot spots throughout the attic. The house has extensive damage to the entire patio area, the roof structure and some of the interior.

Houston haze from Russian fires HOUSTON- Despite the haze in the air and red tinge to the snow on the mountains, air quality in the Bulkley Valley is still within B.C. Ministry of Environment 24 hr objectives. “We’re still at acceptable levels, we don’t need to be issuing an advisory right now,” Ministry of Environment, Skeena Region, meteorologist Ben Weinstein said. Weinstein is unsure how long the current conditions would last as they depend on fire activity in Russia, high altitude wind currents across the ocean and local weather conditions as well. “It’s looking to stick around for a little while,” Weinstein said. “The only thing that could help is if there’s any precipitation.”

C apsule C omments Pharmacists are asked questions about new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The use of coconut oil to improve AD symptoms is one of those questions. So far the evidence is minimal but some people are willing to try it. Remember that one tablespoonful of coconut oil contains 120 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat. It’s good to tell your doctor you are doing this. The anticoagulant, warfarin, (popularly known as a “blood thinner”), has many drug and food interactions. For example, leafy green vegetables contain vitamin K which can work against the warfarin. However, this doesn’t mean cutting these foods out of your diet totally. Just be consistent with the amount you consume daily and your warfarin dose will be adjusted accordingly. Bowel infections with C. difficile bacteria can be hard to treat and can be fatal. Instilling fecal material from a healthy donor via an enema can help normalize the bacterial flora in the bowel and lead to recovery. A synthetic form of fecal matter called RePOOPulate containing 33 strains of bacteria is being developed as an viable alternative to real fecal contents. When do you stop taking a prescription medication? It is always best to consult your doctor about whether it’s OK to discontinue a drug. It can be dangerous to stop “cold turkey”. Our pharmacists can supply some guidance on this subject. Our job as your pharmacist is to ensure you get the most out of your medication. Understanding your medications is the key. We can help you with this.

RCMP busy during long weekend complaint of a large pleasure craft operating dangerously by travelling at high speeds near the shore and close to swimmers.

TUNDRA by Chad Carpenter

“We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Canadian Periodical Fund of the Department of Canadian Heritage.”

BERGEN… from page 1 One such couple was Brenda and Jack Jenkins who are heavily involved in the South Cariboo Rowing Club, with Jack being the coach. Brenda recalls a summer day when Gabe, who was rowing for the University of Victoria, and his dad, Bob, who rowed in the ’76 Summer Olympic Games in Montreal, jumped in a quad with a couple of boys from the club and rowed with them. Noting his South Cariboo Rowing Club members have had a great year at the BC Summer Games and the regattas this summer, Jenkins says Canada’s rowing accomplishments at this Olympics will definitely serve as an inspiration for them. Although he doesn’t know Gabe that well, Werner Heine recalls passing the torch to him

during the 2012 Vancouver Olympic Torch Relay in 100 Mile House. “We sat together on the bus and talked quite a bit, and I had met him briefly before that.” Werner says he is proud about living in the area and he feels that anyone who comes from the community and does something great warrants a

show of support and appreciation. “We put up a banner on our home so people would support Gabe and maybe get up at 2 a.m. to watch him race.” Be sure to read the post-race comments from Gabe and his parents, Bob and Marilyn, on page 27 of this edition of the 100 Mile House Free Press.

Financial Tip of the Week With Are you about to receive a buyout or pension retirement package from your company?

Do you have the option to move your Dave Simkins pension monies? If so, the advantage Financial Advisor is that you have full control over your money and the investments you choose. Once moved to a locked in plan, when both spouses have passed away, there may be money left over to pass on to your estate or to the named beneficiaries of the plan. With a pension, the income stops when the last person dies if there are no dependent children who are eligible to receive pension including disabled children. However, before you decide to move money out, or if you need assistance in choosing the right pension option, let us as pension specialists, take the time to help you determine the right path to choose.

Young hoping to greet public Carole Rooney Free Press

Cariboo-Chilcotin Independent candidate Gary Young is holding a meet-andgreet for anyone who’d like to attend. Folks are invited to bring their questions, concerns or just turn out to meet him on Aug. 15 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. It will be hosted at Jack Hackett’s home at 6038 Valleyview Dr. (first left in the Imperial Ranchettes at North Horse Lake). Young says people need to know what the candidate

Gary Young stands for, his background, and whether that represents the types of communities and people in the Cariboo. “I’ll be handing out detailed profiles of all my community efforts and work,

whether it’s United Way, Chamber of Commerce, and minor sports, whatever.” Young says he also has political experience with print and television media, but adds it’s important to become “more recognizable” to people in the riding. “You have to get close enough for a handshake, and people can ask me the tough questions.” He notes his fishing, hunting and garden-gathering trips to the woods fit the community character. “I’m what I would consider to

be a relatively normal personality.” Light snacks and refreshments will be served at the meetand-greet. “Everybody’s invited. The opposition is invited, if they wish to come.”

Zoning amendments receive first and second readings Two zoning amendments received first and second readings at the July 25 District of 100 Mile House council meeting. One application is from Hammer Collision for a building formerly occupied by Mike & Jo’s Auto Repairs. It requests zoning for a new ICBC-certified auto-body repair and paint shop, expected to employ four to six people. The other zoning amendment application is from the Cariboo Mall management to request changes to allow a fitness centre in the former True Value Hardware location. The fitness centre development would include installing

two sets of new doors facing west toward Highway 97. Adjacent property owners will now be notified of these applications and advertisements placed by staff before public hearings for each will be held on Aug. 14. Both applications are slated for potential third reading at the subsequent council meeting that day, providing council is satisfied with the results of the consultations. Upon approval of the applications by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the area’s community services and fire departments, they will go for zoning adoption on Sept. 11.

How can I ease the financing pains when I buy a house? Get your mortgage pre-approval.

Total Living Area: 2019 sq. ft. • 3 bedrooms • 2.5 bathrooms

Early on, you need to determine the price range that suits you. If you plan to finance your purchase with a mortgage loan, sit down with your lender or mortgage specialist to discuss your needs and get mortgage pre-approval. That way, you know exactly how much you can spend on your new home. If you want to be able to make regular payments to the builder during the construction of the home, talk with your lender about a construction, or draw, mortgage. Pre-approval means that your lender commits to giving you a mortgage loan up to a specified amount at certain terms and conditions, including the interest rate. This commitment will be valid for a specific period. Pre-approval doesn’t lock you into the mortgage. You are still free to pursue other arrangements, including getting a mortgage loan through a builder instead. Some builders offer pre-arranged mortgages with their lenders, sometimes at advantageous rates and terms.

Artists invited to display work in library FOREST GROVE AREA Marianne Van Osch 250-397-2625

Jennifer Beveridge is the latest artist to add her work to the walls of the Forest Grove library. Librarian Connie Flannery invites artists of all ages to bring a painting, drawing or other work of art to the library on Tuesdays from 3 to 8 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. She is pleased to note that several children’s drawings are already on display.

up to cheer them on either. “At one point, we stood aside and let a hailstorm go through, but despite the weather we had lots of spectators and a good time,” Ken Brown said. “A team from Aldergrove was a great addition to the tournament. They stayed in the campground behind the

ballpark, which worked out well.” In the end, the rain won out on Sunday afternoon, when the teams were heading into their final games. A game was forfeited, statistics were checked and tournament winners were decided. First place went to Shuswap, second to Red Rock and third to the T&T Team.

Top male player was awarded to Ivan Christopher and the top female player to Kristie Abrams. Brown said he looks forward to more successful tournaments and an improved ballpark next season. This summer, the old bleachers were removed resulting in limited seating space. New bleachers are

Hootstock great The first ever Hootstock was a happening to remember. Starting with the Old Tyme Band at noon, the Bradley Creek schoolyard came alive with music and readings, poetry and dancing. Country tunes, bluegrass, rock ’n’ roll and the rich voices of solo performers captivated the audience. Hay bales served as chairs and blankets dotted the hillside. Jewel-colored silks draped the stage. African drums rolled rhythms into the hills. The audience danced on the lawn. A three-quarter moon and tiny lights strung overhead added their magic, as dancing girls twirled, barefoot in the grass. Twenty acts took the stage until well

after midnight. With so much entertainment, excellent food on hand and free camping available, Hootstock was the place to be on a lovely summer night.

GROVE… from page 17 Beth Langford Finney went to school here in the 1960s. Her father, Mel, was the school janitor. James Graff wonders if anyone remembers his parents Alex and Margaret Graff. Around 1948/49, they moved from Summerland to work at a ranch at the end of Canim Lake. When they had a day off, the young couple would borrow horses and ride to the store in Forest Grove. Graff also wonders if anyone recalls a First Nations man named Modest who became friends with his parents.

Dancers wearing intricate and colourful regalia performed at the Canim Lake Band’s Traditional Pow Wow, July 27-29. More than 200 people, including visitors from around the Cariboo and travellers from as far away as the United States, attended each day of the event. Canim Lake Band (CLB) Chief Mike Archie says they enjoyed drumming, powerful singing and dance performances. “We enjoyed having our neighbouring nations, as well as many non-First Nations people, come out to celebrate with us in our community

Mike Archie for a couple of days.” The first part of the powwow was held indoors at the CLB gymnasium, due to the grounds being too wet from the rains, but moved outdoors to the arbour for Sunday’s festivities. CLB member Stacey Archie says the First Nations dancers began dancing and then invited up non-First Nations

this coming year. Chief Archie also commended the band youth, age 15-17, for stepping up to the plate and taking care of security duties. Many local and out-of-town vendors presented their wares. There was an open canteen of traditional foods, including Indian tacos. First

Nations clothing and beadwork was also available. Because it was a traditional powwow, all guests enjoyed food free of charge, Chief Archie explains. “It means a lot to our community, as hosts, to see so many people attend from all over.”

Chief Archie notes there were many local dancers and visitors from the surrounding areas, including their own Shuswap Nation. Dancers and visitors came from across the province, including the Carrier and Chilcotin Nations. Fifteen-year-old Mercedes Boyce, CLB’s newly crowned senior princess, assisted at the powwow. She will be representing the band at many powwows, events, and activities across the country

Cariboo Roadhouse

er ily reunion! g r u B d e f f u St g fam

The Cariboo Roadhouse Restaurant has been a fixture in the Cariboo since the early 1900’s. Since I’m the main chef and resident manager I’m happy to continue the tradition at the restaurant my mother, Margaret Tinling bought a few years ago. I’ve been around the Cariboo since 1994 except for a couple of short stays in other areas, and I received my Red Seal Chef’s training under Glen and Norma Clancy from Clancys’ Restaurant in Lac la Hache. I’ve worked in the hospitality industry since I was twenty-one as you can tell by the meal portions we put out. We have a great staff here and more importantly so many loyal customers who are so very supportive. I’m very pleased to meet the new residents who have moved into the area and are becoming steady customers. We still offer our famous specials at the Roadhouse; Friday, fish and chips; Saturday, steak all day; and Sunday, prime rib dinner. We are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., from Tuesday to Sunday and closed Mondays. Come on out and visit us, but please make reservations on the weekend nights.

They’re stopping in for gas or lastminute snacks, a cold refreshment to beat the heat, or to grab a bratwurst or a piece of homemade pie. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve had visitors from Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Alberta, the Coast and even some new soon-to-be locals who are soon moving to Lone Butte. Our area brings an abundance of visitors from all over the world, which adds to the lustre of the Cariboo. Market planned Lone Butte had

Sad passing The community’s thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends of Elke Hirsch from the Red Willow Ranch who recently passed away. It shocked everyone who knew and loved her. She will be missed by many.

It’s hard to believe that it is already August, but there is still time to hit the lake, do some swimming or boating, or just kick back with a good book. You’d better get going though, as summer is quickly slipping by and you don’t want to miss it.

Monical shares cowboy life through his art Monika Paterson Free Press

Super Summer



Cowboy, rancher and artist Len Monical is displaying his unique artwork of cowboy art in 100 Mile House for the rest of the month. His art pieces can be viewed at the Showcase Gallery in the South Cariboo Business Centre at 475 Birch Ave. Monical began sketching in elementary school and continued to do so thanks to the encouragement of his teacher who recognized his talent. The 108 Mile Ranch resident came to the Cariboo in 1962, following his family when they traded their south-

ern holdings for the 30,000 acre (12,140 hectare) 105 Mile Ranch. Ranching continued to play a huge role in his life, but he also became successful as a cutting horse competitor, a cow dog trainer, trial competitor and a horse trainer. Incorporating sketches to tell the story of the cowboy way of life and including some of the tack that is used in ranching is a new addition to his many works of art. One of these pieces features a line sketch of a cowboy on horseback. The sketch depicts both the horse and rider showing the way the old-timers made a really good bridled

horses. Monical also displays several of his bronze works in the showcase. The bronze works depict his trademark style of action involving horses, cowboys, ranch and rodeo life, as well as wildlife. The pieces are done in great detail thanks to the knowledge he has gained from being around horses all his life. “Twin Spirits,” a very large and heavy bronze sculpture, is one of his unique and favourite pieces. “It is more art than sculpture.” Monical says he has always admired the native spirit and the eagle because “they just go together.”

Perfect weather for tasty berries CANIM LAKE PETER HART 250-397-2645

Dear Canimites: It has been a berry-pickers heaven out there, with Saskatoons in abundance, huckleberries coming ripe, and raspberries flowing like a river. Anybody with a patch of the latter is picking every evening. Marga Hausmann, one of the area’s longtime pros, says this year is giving “the biggest crop ever.” The first lettuce and kohlrabi are on the table. Last Jeep If you want to see a Jeep made in the days when men were men and Jeeps were really Jeeps, give Don Reynolds a call

and drop out to see his 1952 CJ-3. It’s his eighth or ninth Jeep restoration. “It’s simple,” he says. “I take them all apart, fix or replace anything that is broken or damaged, paint it all up, and put them back together again.” This one took hundreds of hours to restore, but the result is a mint condition machine. Don has been at this game a long time. He started off in the automotive business in the Lower Mainland before he and his wife, Jean, moved to Canim Lake in 1972 to take over Jack and Merla Latta’s lodge. Don says this Jeep is all original except for the rear differential. He did replace the rear box with a deck and equipped the tough little beast with firefighting equipment – 150 gallon tank, two pumps, forestry hose, and hand tools.

What’s On Here’s a convenient listing of upcoming arts, entertainment and cultural events by non-profit groups in the South Cariboo. To be included, call 250-395-2219 at least one week before the event.

Peter Hart photo

Don Reynolds posed with his 1952 Jeep CJ-3 after completing its restoration and converting it to fire truck. He says this is his last one and will be working on ATVs next. This is the last of the line however. Once it is sold, Don will start rebuilding ATVs. “I can put them up on a bench, which means less lying on a cold floor in winter.” Toody’s garden Toody (Vivian) Shirran’s garden is looking rather luxuriant.

Our vision is “We promote literacy through awareness and advocacy, and by initiating and supporting learning opportunities.” CCPL was established in response to literacy as a serious social and economic issue in the Cariboo Chilcotin.

CANIM… from page 24 The 92-year-old pioneer arrived at Canim Lake in a covered wagon when she was five years old. She now tends the farm’s 100- by 40-foot garden, while raising chickens and selling the eggs. The garden boasts four types of potatoes, peas, with the vines supported by a corn row, Swiss chard, lettuce, onions, turnips, parsnip, carrots, beans, and zucchini. If that isn’t enough, she has three pumpkin vines. Toody says the secret of growing magnificent melons is to pinch off most blossoms, allowing one for a small plant, and not more than three for a large plant. Apparently, the weather of late has been perfect for

the garden, hot temperatures with interspersed rain. Earlier in the summer, the incessant rains packed the Canim soil forcing her to continue to cultivate. Her sister Tink (Stella) helped in that chore. Otherwise, Toody cares for the garden herself. Road news Phil Doddridge of Interior Roads says the mowing will continue in our area until all side roads are completed, including the Canim Lake Estates. The slumping pavement on the South Canim Road has been inspected. Phil says Interior Roads believes this is a settlement problem and the base under the road remains

sound. The depressions in the pavement will be corrected by Interior Roads with more asphalt. Terry Murphy, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure area manager, has passed along the news that a painting truck will be starting in the Quesnel area after the August long weekend, and painting its way south. They expect to complete Canim-Hendrix Lake Road this month. Calendar • Community Club Dinner, Blue Sky Restaurant, Aug. 24, 6 p.m. That’s all for now. Until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings.

Kids Space vacation was a blast BRIDGE LAKE/ INTERLAKES DIANA FORSTER 250-593-2155

Interlakes’ youth group, Kids Space, which is sponsored by the Cariboo Presbyterian Church, held its annual vacation at Interlakes Hall, July 30-Aug. 2. Baseball, music, crafts, papier-mâché and, naturally, Jesus, provided fun for over a dozen youngsters, and culminated in sports day on Aug. 2. This year’s theme was the Miracles of Jesus. With help from Elaine Adams and Alamaz Durand, the children enacted several of Jesus’ miracles: feeding the 5,000; turning water into wine; calming the storm; and healing the paralyzed man. Celia Visscher was in charge of creating wonderful papier-mâché pigs; and Calgary’s Anita Strifling and her niece, Breanna Witzke, from the Lower Mainland ran the “games” section each day. Delicious food was catered by Arlene Dahl, Dawn Caldwell and Sophie Wilcox, while the music was handled by Celia’s grandchildren, Darby (13) and Jackson (11)

The two siblings have beautiful voices and recently had lead roles in a Chilliwack production of The Sound of Music. In September, Pat Lytton (250-593-4447) will become overall co-ordinator of Kids Space and Teen Space. As well as co-ordinating, Pat will run Kids Space, while previous co-ordinator Elaine Adams will run Teen Space. The Junior Firefighters’ Club, for youth aged 16 plus, will now meet at Interlakes Volunteer Fire Department’s (IVFD) regular Tuesday practices. Quilting news The Log Cabin Quilters (LCQ) reconvenes Sept. 12 with an extra, informational meeting. The group generally meets at Interlakes Hall from 9:30 a.m. to

“Don’t Dither, Call Diether”

1:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. The LCQ is wellknown for the beautiful quilts the members donate to worthy causes, such as Bridge Lake School’s annual auction and the IVFD annual raffle. However, they’re not only good quitters, but also excellent teachers. This year, they will be concentrating on in-house instruction for basic quilting. Starting with six different blocks, they will also teach sashing and borders. “It’ll be very simple,” says leader Gyl Connaty. “So people who have a vestige of interest can learn the techniques in a nonstressful way and,

actually, they’ll have lots of fun.” Additional information is always available from Connaty at 250-5934456. Speaker cancelled Unfortunately, falconer Chris Foster has had to cancel tonight’s (Aug. 8) speaking engagement at Bridge Lake School for the Friends of Bridge Lake. Missed opportunity Naturally, I didn’t have my camera with me when five bucks of varying points crossed Horse Lake Road in front of me. I stopped, they stopped, and I would have had a superb photo.


Celebrations Happy birthday today (Aug. 8) to Terry Allan. Birthday bubbly also goes to Alamaz Durand and Joe Visscher, while on Aug.11, Bev and Doug Crawford celebrate 56 years of wedded bliss. Many congratulations to Horse Lake horse-rider Tristiana Allwood who collected three gold medals in dressage at the BC Summer Games. Health and much future happiness are wished for Roxanne Sullivan, daughter of Jim and Lola, on her July 28 marriage to David Sutton of the 108. See BRIDGE… page 31

Small-town boy climbs Olympic podium Ken Alexander Free Press

Gabe Bergen, who was raised in 100 Mile House, helped Canada’s men’s eight crew row to a silver medal at Eaton Dorney during the 2012 London Summer Olympics on Aug. 1. Gabe was four years old when parents, Bob and Marilyn Bergen, move him and his brothers, Karel and Rob, to 100 Mile House. Throughout the years, he played all the school sports and was involved in hockey, soccer and cross-country skiing. His parents instilled athletics and a love for the outdoors in all three boys and it’s something they did as a family. While going to Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School Gabe fell in love with basketball. Noting his dad made the Canadian Olympic rowing team (finished 13th in men’s coxed pairs) in Montreal in 1976, Gabe says he wanted to “try to take a sport as far as I could as well.” Bob notes Gabe

dedicated himself to improving his skill and fitness levels. “He was working out daily shooting the ball and doing the specialized fitness program for basketball. His dedication and drive to be the best he could be was obvious at this time.” Gabe went on to play college basketball at Thompson Rivers University for two years, Bob says, but came to the conclusion he was never going to get the playing time he wanted even though the team captured the bronze medal at the national championships. “I made the college basketball team [as a guard] in Kamloops, but decided I wanted to get into a sport that I had a chance of making a national team. Knowing that Bob was pretty good at rowing back in the day, I decided to go to University of Victoria [where the national rowing team trained] and start rowing.” He quickly established himself as an up-and-coming rower and made the varsity rowing team in his second year. He was invited to try out for

For Bergen, it represented seven years of hard work and sacrifice to get an Olympic medal. the national team at the end of his second year and remarkably made the team in his first attempt. Gabe earned a seat in the men’s eight and helped the team to ninth-place finish during the World Championship in Great Britain in 2006. For the next three

years, however, his skills and strength at pulling two oars had him representing Canada in the pairs and quad shells. He won a gold medal in pairs at Linz, Austria in the 2008 World Championship. That same year, however, Gabe suffered a huge disappointment when his quad failed to qualify for the Beijing Olympics by less than a second. Bob says Gabe took some time to reassess whether he wanted to train for another Olympics or call it a career. Fortunately, he chose the latter and dedicated himself to become a stronger and a better rower. Gabe was back in the long boat and won a silver and bronze in the 2009 and 2010 World Championships. While Canada was the defending men’s eight Olympic champions, the crew was also in a rebuilding

process with newer and less-experienced rowers. In the heat of this year’s World Championship, the future looked bright when Gabe and his crewmates shaved a half second off the world record set by the United States in Athens in 2004. Gabe sits in the bow seat and he plays a significant role, as it’s his job to have his oar in the water first to relieve the drag for the rowers in front of him. “In the bow, I have to pay attention to the balance of the boat, as well as picking the weight off the guy in front of me, so it doesn’t get too heavy in the stern.” The boys had a disappointing start to the 2012 London Summer Olympics, as they finished dead last in their heat on July 28. During the postrace interview, Gabe told the media “all

the team members know they have to row better” if they were going to make it to the medal round. “In the heat, we went off at too high of a rate and never settled into a good rhythm, so we were not able to respond to the other boats going through us.” Gabe says he tries to stay calm before the races “because it’s a long race and you can really burn all your energy up if you are too hyped up for the race.” It was a complete turn around for the repechage on July 30 when Gabe and his crewmates finished a strong second to the Brits to advance to the medal round. “In the rep, we drove into a good power rhythm that was sustainable.” They saved their best race for the final and it was an absolute gem that saw the Canadians get off to a great start and bat-

tled the German crew, which had gone undefeated since 2009, and Great Britain for the medals. “In the final, we just raised our game that little bit more to have our best race ever. “All eight of us were on the same page in the final. It felt unbelievable to execute a really good race when it mattered the most.” Gabe says winning the silver medal at the Olympics was very satisfying. “The experience has been incredible, knowing that all the hard work over the last seven years paid off”. He adds the experience was even more gratifying because his mom, dad, both his brothers, two uncles and two friends were there to watch the racing. “They were having just as much fun as me when we crossed the finish line in second. Some of my family members and friends could barely talk for two days they were screaming so loud. “It was so great to have all the family there and friends to join in with the celebration.” Gabe has words of encouragement for anyone who wants to join the South Cariboo Rowing Club. “It’s a sport that requires a lot of hard work with not many races, but when you go out and do the best you can, it’s one of the most rewarding sports.” Gabe says he has always been proud to call 100 Mile House his home town. “Thank you so much to the community of 100 Mile for all the support and recognition you have given me throughout my rowing career.”

Brett Harris has choices to make Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Brett Harris has some big decisions to make this summer. The 17-year-old hockey prodigy from 108 Mile Ranch played the past two seasons with the Prince George Cariboo Cougars Major Midgets and was a fifth-round Regina Pats pick in the 2010 Western Hockey League

(WHL) Bantam Draft. The Pats are out Now, two years of the equation since after the draft, he’s he had his name caught the removed interest of the from their Penticton Vees list. The folJunior A squad lowing day, and the Calgary he heard Hitmen WHL from Calgary Central Division and then team. Both have Penticton Brett Harris invited Harris contacted to attend their him. main hockey camps, “Penticton showed but the problem is the more interest in me camps take place at in two weeks than the same time in late Regina showed in August. two years,” he says.

Harris is weighing the different possibilities that come with each of the two clubs, noting that while Calgary is attractive as a WHL division team, he may spend a lot of time sitting on the bench. As a member of the Vees, he’s almost certain of seeing lots of ice time. He also likes their reputation. “The quality of the Vees is always outstanding. They

always do well.” Harris has diligently been doing off-season training with local trainer, Dustin Price and says he’s in good health and injury-free. He’ll be entering Grade 12 in September and says the coming season will be one of his most important. “This year will play out more for what my hopes and dreams are. This will determine [my future].”

Rain hampers scores at 108 Men’s Night By Spence Henderson Fifty-five golfers braved the rain on Aug. 1 and stayed relatively dry, as jackets and hats were important but umbrellas were only needed briefly. Seven golfers broke the 40 plateau, with Vern Jeffrey leading the way shooting an even par 35. Tony Morete and Jeff Kendy shot 36s. Kendy eliminated Larry Pinkney’s first-flight closest-tothe-pin (KP) marking a mere couple of minutes later, but Pinkney took home a draw prize (worth more than the KP) as a consolation. Andy Wahnschaff and Chris Stevens shot 37s and Stevens also picked up a

deuce and a long drive prizes. After rechecking the scores Bob Weiduwilt was low gross in the second flight with a 39. Spence Henderson’s corrected 41 dropped him to third low gross, but he had a long drive and a KP as consolation. The weather was a bit more challenging for the third flight players, as Al Smeds was low gross with a 45. The net scores were better, however, as Smeds, Gord Spare, Ron Tonts and Harvey Knapp were all under par with their net scores. First flight Jeffrey took low gross with a 35, and Kendy had low net with a 33.

Birch Lake A Good Summer Choice photos/


irch Lake offers everything an angler could want, with its myriad bays to explore, its proximity to other excellent fishing lakes, and its amazing scenery. Oh, and the fish are big, too! The lake’s higher elevation protects it from the summer doldrums. While lower elevation lakes can suffer in the deep heat of the summer, the cool, deep waters of Birch Lake remain inviting, keeping the trout invigorated all season long. Some of the trout in Birch Lake have been known to reach sizes of 5 pounds or more. Curt Roy, from Birch Lake Fish Camp, says that in 2011, a 9lb trout came out of the lake. Trolling is the most effective way to fish Birch Lake, says Roy, and “colour coded lead core line with a 100 foot monofilament leader works great!” He adds that Flatfish in any colour, Wedding Bands, Hildebrandts, Dick Nites and some larger spoons are good choices. If you’re using straight monofilament, Roy suggests a Les Davis Sunflash, Cowbell or

larger Ford Fender. Roy offers good advice for fly fishers as well. Try a very fast sink line with a 20 foot flourocarbon leader. A Big Bead Head leech in any colour will work all season. Attractor patterns such as Doc Spratleys and Royal Coachmen are good to have on hand, and in the early spring, try a chironomid pattern.

Birch Lake; anglers need to check in at the resort before launching boats.

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!

Ed was born in Vancouver, BC on September 23, 1954. Ed was a very well liked and respected guy. He loved his job in Fire Protection and took great pride in his work in the community. He named his business after his dog Ranger, and called it Ranger Fire Protection. He was a loving husband and enjoyed the peaceful life in the Cariboo where he always dreamed of living. Ed will be sadly missed by his wife Lynn and his two dogs Ranger and Libby, Ed’s sons Ryan and Adam, sister Teresa (Rick), nieces Kendra, Bridget, Erinn, also Ed’s step children Janelle, Kyle (Kim), Elliot, and two grandchildren Cadie and Harrison. He will also be missed by many extended family and friends.

October 19, 1919 - July 29, 2012 Irene passed away peacefully at the age of 92 on July 29, 2012 in 100 Mile House, BC. She was born in Shellbrook, Saskatchewan and married her husband Harold Casey in June of 1940. Together they began a family. In 1942 the family made their way to the lower mainland of BC. In 1956 the entire clan made their way to the Cariboo, which Irene called home until her passing. Irene was pre-deceased by her loving husband Harold in 2008, her daughter Carol in 1994, and her infant daughter Mavis many years ago. She is survived by her son Marvin Casey, daughter Marilyn (Mel) Shaw, her 6 surviving grand children, 13 great grand children, 6 great-great grandchildren, her sister Joyce in Hawaii as well as many nieces and nephews. Irene was loved by all those who knew her; she will be held close to our hearts and will remain forever in our memories. A tea in honour of Irene’s life was held on August 2, 2012 at Carefree Manor. In lieu of flowers a donation in Irene’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice.

The London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games offer an excellent opportunity for parents and children to cheer on their favourite athletes while practicing literacy skills. Have fun with these options: • Find out where the Olympic flame has travelled by looking at a map. You can practise your numeracy skills by calculating the distance travelled. A detailed map can be found at • Write a note of congratulations and send it to your favourite Canadian athlete. • Keep track of the number of gold, silver and bronze medals won by Canadian athletes. Use cool stickers to mark your tally. • Find out more about London, England. Read about famous Brits, such as Shakespeare and Henry VIII. • Research the sports being played. Identify one you are least familiar with and read about its rules. • Sing the Canadian national anthem in English and French to cheer on the teams. • Research information about your favourite athlete. Find out where they grew up, how they train, what their favourite food is, etc. • Look up Olympic-inspired trivia. (Did you know Clara Hughes is the only Canadian athlete to win a medal at both the summer and winter Olympic Games?) • Learn the history of the Olympic Games, such as its origins and past and future host cities. Locate those host cities on a map. • During timed events, calculate the difference between the top athletes’ performances to improve your numeracy skills.

Public mischief On Aug. 3 at 8:20 a.m., 100 Mile House RCMP were called to the arena on Airport Road in 100 Mile House for the com-

plaint of mischief to property. Investigation revealed several youth had smashed the windows, tagged the buildings with obscene words and drawings and caused damage to the grounds. Three youth and one adult were arrested for mischief under $5,000. The suspects’ guardians and the arena staff were advised of the damages. The suspects cleaned up the damage on site under the supervision of arena staff, and

the investigation is ongoing. Vehicle fire On Aug. 3 at 1:45 p.m., police were called to assist 108 Mile Ranch Volunteer Fire Department with a car fire on Highway 97 near 108 Mile. The driver was travelling from Prince George and experienced problems with the electrical system in the vehicle and pulled over as he smelled smoke and the vehicle started on fire. The vehicle was

destroyed due to the fire. No one was injured in the incident. Stranded boater On Aug. 3 at 10:38 p.m., 100 Mile House RCMP received information from Clearwater RCMP that a boater was in distress on Mahood Lake. The boat operator was out alone on the lake for the day when he encountered engine failure several kilometres down the lake. The man used a satel-

lite phone to call for help and reached the Clearwater RCMP. 100 Mile House RCMP took charge of the case as Mahood Lake falls within its jurisdiction. South Cariboo Search and Rescue was mobilized and attended the lake and located the male after only a few hours of searching. The 37-year-old Prince George man was tired and cold from rowing all night, but was unharmed.
