Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson has announced regulatory changes will provide access to logging slash and wood-waste fibre needed by bioenergy producers and manufacturers of wood pellets and other bio-products. Amendments to regulations under the Forest Act, the Forest and Range Practices Act, and the Wildfire Act will bring into effect a residual forestry licence to cut, as well as a fibre supply licence to cut, for wood biomass. These licences will enable

smaller operators to acquire wood fibre and logging debris unwanted by primary harvesters. This includes the smaller trees, branches, limbs and tops of trees that are piled roadside or on logging landing sites as the by-product of a typical timber-harvesting operation. The new tenures do not grant rights to harvest standing timber. “These tenures will increase opportunities to turn slash piles and unwanted fibre into energy, wood pellets and other bio-products,” says Thomson.

“Improved use of logging leftovers and residual wood provides jobs and economic benefits for rural communities, especially those affected by the mountain pine beetle infestation.” Facts • Residual forestry licences to cut are intended for utilizing wood waste fibre from small, short-term operations limited to a few cut blocks or roadside operations. • Fibre supply licences to cut are intended for utilizing wood waste from larger geo-

Barkerville gold-panning championships Aug. 11-12 Elaine Edgington, the great-greatgranddaughter of Barkerville namesake William “Billy” Barker, will be Barkerville’s guest of honour at the 2012 Canadian National Gold Panning Championships on Aug. 11-12, and will speak at a special Discovery Day ceremony planned for 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. Discovery Day, which caps off a weekend of sesquicentennial celebrations at Barkerville, is the official commemoration of Billy Barker’s astonishing placer gold strike in August 1862. Barker and his partners discovered a 30-foot layer of rich gold-bearing gravel 52 feet below the surface of lower Williams Creek that averaged 100 ounces of gold a day. Discovery Day events will include musical performances throughout the town, a brand new Billy Barker historical interpretation, a visit from “The Spirit of Cariboo Cameron,” and a 100plus pound “Happy Birthday Barkerville” cake. The 2012 Canadian National Gold Panning Championships will be hosted by Barkerville’s own five-time World

Invitational Gold Panning Champion Scott Rea. The championships are a two-day extravaganza that is sure to appeal to gold enthusiasts of all ages. Competition categories include child, adult, seniors, professionals, teams, dash for the dentist (a children’s candyhunt), scavenger pile (an adult freefor-all), grudge match, and King of the Creek (the ultimate contest for bragging rights and a $1,000 cash prize). Each category has cash prizes and sponsored gifts for the winners (including a $1,500 high bank sluice for the adults and a Razor

electric scooter for the children). Anyone can participate, provided they register 10 minutes prior to each event.

who’s listening to CaribooRadio.Com

WEEK OF AUGUST 12 TO 18, 2012

MIKAYLA MOSHER

THE LUCKIEST SIGNS THIS WEEK: SCORPIO, SAGITTARIUS, AND CAPRICORN.

Mikayla says: “I like CaribooRadio.Com because I like to listen to local events and the music”

ARIES

Spend some time with your family and be sure to enjoy the comforts of your own home. Your relationship with your loved one will take priority this week.

Mikayla won free lunch at “the Cariboo Diner” in 100 Mile House B.C. CONGRATULATIONS!

TAURUS

You might be tempted to buy yourself a new car. You’ll also spend a lot of time negotiating all sorts of things or listening to endless speeches. GEMINI

Whether the back-to-school season is pertinent to you or not, you’ll still want to treat yourself and renew your wardrobe. This will give your self-esteem a boost. CANCER

This week you won’t feel like listening to the advice of others. Trust that your intuition will guide you in the right direction. LEO

You might have to step backwards to gain perspective and momentum before making a big move. You are thinking seriously about your personal and professional future. VIRGO

Choosing to stay busy socially this week might cost you more than you were expecting. Crunch some numbers and switch to some less costly activities. LIBRA

Don’t skimp in order to look good! The same is true for other members of your family, especially your children, who will look as if they belong in a fashion show.

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!

Stolen purse recovered RCMP… from page 11

RCMP Detachment at 250-395-2456 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Purse theft On Aug. 2 at 11:41 a.m., 100 Mile House RCMP received the complaint of a theft from a vehicle parked in the 900 Block of Alder Ave. A purse and contents were taken from the vehicle. Police located and arrested the suspect. Charges of theft under $5,000 are being recommended against the 34-yearold 100 Mile House woman. Motorcycle hits the ditch On July 31 at 4:59 p.m., 100 Mile House RCMP, 100 Mile House Traffic Services and Clinton RCMP received several 9-1-1 calls of a motorcycle collision near 83 Mile on Highway 97. Both detachments responded and located a single male rider who was thrown from

his motorcycle near 81 Mile. Investigation revealed the rider had missed the corner and struck the ditch and was ejected from his motorcycle. He suffered a broken hand, broken foot and broken ribs due to the collision. The

48-year-old Kelowna man was also investigated for impaired operation of a motor vehicle. He refused to provide samples and was charged with refusing to provide a sample. Investigation into the matter is ongoing.
