School fields overrun with rodents Gopher holes in school yard a cause for concern for parents group Carole Rooney Free Press

100 Mile House Elementary School student Rowan Cole shows how easy it is for a little foot to slip into one of the big gopher holes in the playing fields at her school. She’s concerned this could result in an injury to herself, or to a schoolmate.

Gophers tunnelling through the playing fields at 100 Mile House Elementary School have turned it into a virtual Swiss cheese of hazardous holes. School principal Donna Rodger says she is well aware of the problem with the gophers and the numerous holes in the sports fields where children run and play. “The gophers in the field are quite concerning. Alex Telford, head of [School District #27 (SD27)] maintenance in Williams Lake, is looking into solutions.” Parent Advisory Council president Angela Cole, who has two children enrolled at the school, says she is concerned about the potential hazards of both the holes and the gophers. “I guess I echo the principal in her concerns, and realize the gophers are a nuisance. “I certainly have no idea how to rid the property of these in an environmentally friendly way and can’t envision the farmer’s method [of shooting them] going over well on school grounds.” While she is aware of a poison bait method, Cole says this “doesn’t sound comforting” and would lead to concerns about children or pets that may come into contact with the poison. “My other fear is that one of the children will get bit, or someone running or

playing [on the fields] breaks a leg from the large holes being created throughout the field.” Some of these holes are large enough to fit an adult’s foot in the hole, she adds. SD27 board chair Will Van Osch says he hadn’t previously been aware of the specific problem at 100 Mile Elementary, but it isn’t unusual in the school district. “It’s a maintenance thing. It’s not uncommon.” Van Osch says he doesn’t know if Forest Grove resident Richard Bergen will be setting traps, but explains “The Go-pher It Man” [Richard Bergen] helps SD27 in successfully controlling the rodents at Forest Grove Elementary School, where similar problems occur. Gophers appear late in the season and then hibernate before the fall, he adds, so the rodents are disappearing now and the holes should be filled in before school starts up again, but will reappear again in the spring. The school board chair notes he’ll follow up and see what can be done to control them. “I think it’s a serious issue.” People don’t like to poison the rodents, the school board chair says, and people can’t shoot guns in 100 Mile House, so it’s pretty hard to control them completely in an urban area. Typically, the school principal will See GOPHERS… page A3

Community Christian school closes The100MileCommunity Christian School that rallied to remain operational this spring will not reopen for classes in September, as it has closed permanently. Principal Pattie Baker championed getting the school operational after the unrelated Cariboo Christian School closed its doors in mid-year, leaving students and staff without a comparable local option

in Christian curriculum. The new 100 Mile Community Christian School commenced classes temporarily in the annex at St. Timothy’s Anglican Church on Feb. 6, but Baker says the enrolment numbers are insufficient for fall classes to resume. Without a certain number of students signed up, the school can’t offer the wide range of quality pro-

grams and the staffing it needs to justify opening, she explains. Baker adds she is grateful to everyone who helped enable the students to finish out the 2011/12 school year. “It was really nice to see how everybody came together to support us, especially St. Timothy’s Anglican Church. Moving into their annex was a tre-

mendous blessing for us.” Dream School Canada, a local Korean school in 100 Mile House, was “really on board” in offering another space for the school and she adds that support is also greatly appreciated. Baker, who is currently vice-chair of the School District #27 school board, says she will soon be moving on to an education position in Manitoba.

South Cariboo NTERTAINMENT recreation functions examined for expansion Carole Rooney Free Press

The Cariboo Regional District and the District of 100 Mile House discussed the immediate future of recreation in the South Cariboo during a series of meetings with various local user groups. The meetings have spanned much of the past year, and together these parties are now ready to pose some ideas and potential opportunities to the general public. CRD chair Al Richmond says thanks to the willingness of some user groups to volunteer additional time, there will be an information booth at the South Cariboo Community Fall Fair, Sept. 7-9. The general public will be able to see some of the initial ideas and options discussed, he notes, and provide some feedback on broadening the scope of recreation. “We’re learning people would like to see more things

included in recreation than we currently do [in being] limited to an arena, a curling rink and a ball field.” Examples of this might include providing ongoing financial support for the municipality’s soccer fields and Martin Exeter Hall, he adds. The many aspects in the future of recreation do affect regional and municipal taxation, so after working with the user groups to determine the vision and what should be included, Richmond says the time is right to talk to the public and move

Once initial public input has been gathered at the fall fair, the next step will see this combined with the meeting results for more specific options. “I believe we’ll be taking it out this fall for public meeting discussions, and saying we may very well go to referendum.” People could then vote to choose what they want to be included in the program, and what they don’t before it shows up on their taxes. This stage is only looking at the existing recreation boundaries, and not

encompassing any changes to those, he explains. “It’s too big [a task] to take it out to people who don’t pay for anything right now. So, we want to talk to people who are in the area and are paying for it.” The local recreation

function is limited by what is allowed in the associated bylaws, Richmond notes, so the referendum will legalize some changes to how the districts spend money on facilities. “We all know that volunteerism is on the decline and becoming more and more difficult. So [we’re asking] how do we help these groups, and should we include this in our recreation folio.” He adds significant efforts have been expended by the 100

Mile House district staff and council, the CRD staff and directors and the user groups in narrowing down such a broad topic. The current review process will only cover facilities in existence, not building any new ones, Richmond says. Therefore, any potential for a local aquatic centre is not part of these immediate options, but rather part of a longterm vision, although he notes the South

Cariboo Aquatic Society has been included in the meetings. “That [pool] isn’t a ticket that we’re going to talk about the detailed costs of today, but we need to decide what we’re going to do about existing facilities. “If the soccer fields are important for the number of people that use them, then we need to find a way to help fund them. I’d like to see it go to referendum sooner rather than later.”

school instructional hours are used at the risk of the individuals using them.” This includes use during evenings, weekends and during the summer break, she notes, although summer does involve a lighter maintenance schedule than during the school year. She adds SD27 is “vigilant” at looking after its fields, however, and rodent holes are filled in on a regular basis.

“Because the [gophers] do go into hibernation naturally, certainly the holes will be filled for the kids returning to school. But whether there’s anything else that needs to happen, that’s where we’re bringing in the services of a consultant.” Meanwhile, Bergen says he has not yet been contacted by the school district about 100 Mile Elementary School gophers. He adds, however, the

school district would now need to wait for spring. He explains his traps are placed down inside the hole at one end of a tunnel and then dispatch the gopher as it attempts to exit, so nothing is left above ground before Bergen comes back to remove it. Cole adds she hopes there is an easy solution to eradicate the problem, so they don’t pose a hazard next spring.

The gophers, which have been raising families and digging holes in the 100 Mile House Elementary School fields, will resurface next spring.

That [pool] isn’t a ticket that we’re going to talk about the detailed costs of today, but we need to decide what we’re going to do about existing facilities.”

forward. “We’re going to be talking to the people who pay for these services and saying, ‘here’s what we currently do; here’s what we’re finding people want us to do ... and so how do we include those in that scope?’ That will be step 1.”

They do a pretty good job.” SD27 superintendent Diane Wright says the school district is contracting with a consultant recommended for schools and school grounds to get some advice on how best to deal with the gophers.

“We hope we’ll have some ideas and solutions by the end of the summer. It’s good to bring in the experts when you need them.” In respect to any potential liability concerns about children or others injuring themselves in the fields, Wright says the district focuses on ensuring the grounds are safe for students. “Playgrounds used outside of

Aerator back in Higgins Lake Carole Rooney Free Press

The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation (HCTF) is disputing the provincial government’s claim it cut funding that contributed to the controversial removal of the Higgins Lake aerator on Aug. 1. This follows Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) public affairs officer Brennan Clarke’s recent response to requests for comments. “The decision to remove the aerator came about due to increasing operating costs and declining grants from the [HCTF], which has provided funding for five aerators in the Cariboo Region for close to a decade,” said Clarke. However, HCTF chief executive officer Brian Springinotic said this isn’t the case. “We haven’t cut funding to the province; we’ve capped it at the same level we’ve had it at for the past three years. “We haven’t removed it. We have no plans to remove it.” He explained the actual problem is the MFLNRO’s Fish and Wildlife branch

is struggling with increasing costs for maintaining those aerators. Springinotic noted these escalating operating expenses are mainly for the BC Hydro service and the contractors to monitor and manage the aerators. “As I understand it, the regional staff in Williams Lake has said ‘Well, with that funding cap, we can’t run all five aerators, we can only run four’.” While Higgins Lake residents report the Fish and Wildlife staff told them four other lakes are slated to have their aerators removed, Clarke said government has no plans to remove any more “at this time.” After the aerator was removed on Aug. 1, Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett convinced the ministry to replace the aerator for the short term. She said it was “absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable” to remove the aerator, especially without prior public process. “I talked with the people of Higgins Lake about what really shows the arrogance of it all, that there was no consideration and no consultation with, or for, the community.”

“unsustainable and pressures still exist,” so over the next year its staff will be discussing options and possible alternative funding solutions with the local community. “In other areas of the province, the local community and regional government have chipped in money to pay for aerators, an option that the province would support moving forward, since local authorities are the main beneficiaries of associated property value lifts.” However, Cariboo Regional District

(CRD) Area L Director Bruce Rattray said this is neither within its mandate nor its capacity to take on this expense and it has never before been asked to help fund aerators. “I recognize the province has funding constraints; however, so does the CRD. “For the province to expect local governments to jump in and fill the gap is really, simply another case of downloading costs to local governments.”

Springinotic explained HCTF is a not-for-profit charity funded mainly by hunters, anglers, trappers and guideoutfitters’ licence fee surcharges, which has flat revenues that can’t cover cost increases. While it was advised what the province intended to do, he said HCTF has no control of that and no fisheries biologists on staff to effectively question the removal. Springinotic noted MFLNRO Minister Steve Thomson’s subsequent order that the aerator be put back into Higgins Lake for at least one more year is “short-term good news” for its residents and anglers. The HCTF doles out some $250,000 a year to the government for similar projects across British Columbia, he added, but with rising costs, operational shortages will be seen again. “We’re going to continue to have to grapple with this.” Clarke explained the funding model is

Community Works funding approved CRD BRIEFS The Cariboo Regional District directors approved $170,000 of Community Works Funds to help complete the pilot project for the Lac La Hache refuse transfer station at their regular board meeting Aug. 24. The Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) identified substantial savings could occur if the CRD compacted the waste at transfer stations prior to hauling and controlling the sites with an attendant to reduce cleanup costs. The creation of a wood-waste yard and an expanded share shed at the site was also identified for construction in 2012. Visit the CRD at www.cariboord. bc.ca to view the new SWMP, which has been approved by board and is awaiting final adoption and approval by the province.

Green Party of BC Leader Jane Sterk says Dix’s statements clarify his party’s position and opens the door for NDP support for the pipeline to cross Northern British Columbia, after its previous stance clearly opposed the project. “I am profoundly disappointed but not surprised by this seeming change in the NDP position.” Cariboo-Chilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse says this move would position B.C. to argue any federal review results approving the project, which is Dix’s intention. “The NDP position is very clear on the Enbridge pipeline; we’re opposed to it.” The entire caucus

250-395-7494

signed a letter earlier this year to the federal authorities responsible stating it is opposed to the pipeline project that would cross 600 streams and watercourses with bitumen, as well as increasing tanker traffic on the coastline, he explains. “B.C. is taking the majority of the risks ... and the benefits are simply not there for us.” The process is already underway and under the responsibility of the federal government, so getting that veto power back into the hands of the province is what the move is all about, he explains. Without going this route, Wyse says there isn’t any other route for the province to take to stop the ball rolling on the pipeline approval. That’s because in 2010, this was formalized in a federal-provincial contract. However, Dix says he’s found a way to bow out of through its 30-day clause for withdrawal. “The B.C. Liberals signed an agreement

that whatever the federal environmental review process came up with, they would accept that.” Dix announced that if elected premier next May he will place this blockade in front of the pipeline, Wyse adds. “The province is entitled to do its own environmental review process under that agreement. Whether the pipeline proceeds or not is a federal decision ... then it becomes a legal battle.” Meanwhile, Sterk says constitutional lawyer Murray Rankin recently suggested there might be other ways to legally stop the project, yet the NDP intends to go the environmental assessment route rather than “simply saying ‘no’.”

“The provincial environmental assessment process is weak and virtually all projects are approved.” Wyse notes that if the provincial review doesn’t reject the project, the B.C. cabinet would then make the final decision. While he concedes that whatever a provincial review found would be used to base a final pipeline decision on, Wyse notes it’s likely the only way to attempt to prevent the pipeline. The B.C. Liberal government has “formed no opinion” on whether the project should proceed, he says, adding it’s an indication any decision the fed’s make is “good” with them. “That’s not the way B.C.’s interest should be looked after.”

s was the case with the Harmonized Sales Tax, the B.C. Liberal government decided smart meters were good for British Columbians and went forward with the installation program without consultation or seeking public input. As soon as the province announced it was going ahead with smart meters, there was a public outcry about the use of smart meters because of health concerns, lack of public input and the government’s insistence every British Columbia household and business must have one. Then, BC Hydro trotted out a dog-and-pony show that travelled around the province providing all of the “good things” smart meters would do for the great unwashed. Those who were in opposition to the smart meters, especially those who claimed there are associated health issues or invasion-of-privacy issues, were vilified as conspiracy theorists. In fairness, there was a mishmash of “science” being purported by both sides in the smart-meter debate. Those who said they wouldn’t allow people on their private property to install the meters were falsely told private property didn’t carry any weight in this instance. However, Section 17, subsection 5 of the Clean Energy Act clearly states BC Hydro agents cannot go on private property without the owner’s consent. Most recently, however, the issue of installation safety of smart meters, and BC Hydro’s claim a Mission homeowner was liable for a fire that destroyed her home one day after a smart meter was installed, surfaced. The Mission fire department’s report noted the June 15 blaze originated in an insulating “lug” that attached the meter base to the home appeared to be cracked and “radiated heat” to combust the wall. Shortly after Lower Mainland media published the story earlier this month, BC Hydro followed with a press release stating the “meter socket” was the homeowner’s responsibility and, therefore, the Crown corporation was off the hook for liability. However, it also noted installers always do a safety inspection and BC Hydro gives homeowners the option to have meter electrical issues repaired at taxpayers’ expense. BC Hydro also warns homeowners to have electricians check the wiring regularly.

Unplug the MP pension money machine If you could put a loonie into a machine and get $23.30 out every time, would you ever stop? That would probably not happen. It’s human nature and this may explain why members of Parliament have been moving so slowly to reform their platinumplated pension plan. Earlier this year, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) released a report showing taxpayers put in $23.30 for every $1 parliamentarians contribute to their pension plans. Some MPs snarled back, claiming the CTF numbers were wrong. They are not wrong. Others made it clear they were entitled to their entitlements. A few shared the public’s concern about the gold-plated pension plan. Still nothing has changed. The Conservatives have promised action, but the federal budget came and went with no specifics on MP pension reform. The dirty little secret about MP pensions is they aren’t invested into the market like other pension funds. They simply set an arbitrary rate of interest and taxpayers kick in whatever amount is necessary to make it grow by that much. MPs settled on a return of 10.4 per cent per year—making it the best-performing pension in

JORDAN BATEMAN

GUEST SHOT Canada. When the recession hit in 2008, the MP pension fund still grew by its legally mandated 10.4 per cent, while the Canada Pension Plan lost 18.6 per cent, the B.C. Public Service Pension Plan lost 14.2 per cent, the B.C. Teachers Pension Plan lost 13 per cent and the WorkSafe B.C. Pension Plan lost 11.2 per cent. Add to that an incredibly low eligibility threshold for MPs to collect - age 55, six years of service, fully indexed at age 60 and tied to CPI increases annually and taxpayers are on the hook for millions and millions of dollars for a pension they could only dream of receiving themselves. It would take a normal Canadian nearly 30 years to save the nest egg necessary to produce the pension payout a backbench MP receives after six years of service - making the same monthly contribution. If he retired from politics in 2015, a second-term, Opposition MP Don Davies would start with an annual pension of $33,148. If he collected until age 80, Davies

would take home $1.07 million in total pension payouts. That’s basically the bare minimum for serving as an MP, after annually contributing $10,900 of his own money while in office. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Hedy Fry would start with an annual pension of $134,211. John Duncan would collect $126,829. Dick Harris would start with $118,236. Libby Davies would have to make due with $94,818. These amounts are all indexed to inflation and increase every year - thanks to Canadian taxpayers. This has to change. The Conservative government has promised details of a new MP pension plan this fall, but taxpayers have been waiting years already. Politicians continue to be reluctant to step away from the machine multiplying their money. It’s up to taxpayers to unplug the machine by putting pressure on their local members of Parliament to support MP pension reform. Sign the CTF petition, write or call your MP and let them know that this pension inequity must come to an end. Jordan Bateman is the British Columbia director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

Studying projects to death ENTERTAINMENT

Letters to the editor

Canada Post shuts door on Korean War

To the editor: This is an open letter to Canada Post and Prime Minster Stephen Harper. I have written to this newspaper along with a few others in order to make my plea public, and perhaps convince Canada Post to reconsider its decision to say “no” to our veterans and it may move our prime minister to help. I am unofficially writing on behalf of all Korean War veterans and for those 516 brave Canadian men who died during the war. Those buried on the Korean peninsula remain silent, but their comrades, families, many others and I do not forget them. Canada Post represents all of Canada and the stamps produced each year play an important part in portraying Canadian life and history. Since the end of the war in 1953, only one Canadian Korean War themed postage stamp has been made and Canada Post refuses to make another. The war lasted three long years, and tragically saw the death of several million soldiers and civilians from both sides of the front line. This worldwide historical event involved many allied countries that fought for the first time under the United Nations banner, and with a just cause, to stop a war. I ask you both, the corporation and the prime minister, why will Canada Post not honour our veterans who succeeded in winning the greatest prize – peace? Next year is the 60th anniversary of the Korean War cease fire, and before it is too late when our veterans have all passed on, please reconsider your decision “not” to recognize this important historical event with a lasting national honour, a commemorative postage stamp. Guy Black, recipient Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation Port Moody

A disregard for taxpayers’ money To the editor: Judging from the recent Auditor General’s report on the fiscal mess in Victoria, all our high-paid MLAs have one thing in common - they have no respect for taxpayers’ money. When the Auditor General takes them by the scruff of their necks and holds them up to public scrutiny, they instantly become meekly apologetic. However, they have the gall to act as if their disregard for accurate accounting is all news to them, as if the Auditor General has never drawn it to their attention before. Careless inattention to detail might be expected from that tired old crew of the almost leaderless BC Liberal Party because their ship is floundering. Most of them are focused on updating their résumés and searching for a plush lifeboat. However, there is no excuse for Adrian ‘I-AmHolier-Than-They-Are’ Dix. If Dix doesn’t have the ethical standards and organizational ability to insure his NDP MLAs document their travel expenses correctly, how can he be expected to manage a competent and principled government? Lloyd Atkins Vernon

VICTORIA – NDP Leader Adrian Dix has announced that one of his first acts as premier would be to withdraw British Columbia from the joint review of the Enbridge pipeline proposal from Alberta to Kitimat. The two-year, federal-led review will be mostly done by next May, but Dix proposes to start a new provincial assessment to examine at the B.C. portion. He doesn’t know how much it would cost, and under questioning he all but admitted the intention is to study the pipeline to death. Fresh from a summer tour of the pipeline route to reaffirm solidarity with its opponents, Dix is hardly in a position to consider anything but maximum resistance. As Premier Christy Clark did in her showdown with Alberta over benefits, Dix hinted provincial permits for river and wildlife crossings would be made as expensive as possible, if not refused. The same fate awaits the Kinder Morgan plan to twin the existing Trans-Mountain oil pipeline to Burnaby. Dix left the impression he would undo the years of work that have gone into bringing some rational sense to environmental approvals that can be, and have been, dragged out for years. The B.C. hearings would provide another platform for opponents, and more complaints to justify refusal at the provincial level, to go along with court cases and direct-action protests. Speaking of which, the frontal assault by agitators at the federal Enbridge hearings has mostly petered out. After 4,000-odd peo-

TOM FLETCHER

BC VIEWS ple were signed up to speak, most didn’t bother, and some hearings were cancelled. Apparently slacktivists, such as “Jonathan L. Seagull” and “Cave Man,” didn’t make it out of their Vancouver basement suites to tell the panel oil is bad. Professional environmentalists are now wringing their hands over Ottawa’s decision to leave smaller-scale reviews to the province. This means, for example, there won’t be a duplicate federal review of the urgently needed refit of the John Hart Dam on the Campbell River. One reader suggested that environmental pioneer Roderick Haig-Brown is still spinning in his grave over the damming of this legendary salmon-bearing river. Perhaps, but that was in 1947. Does it make sense today to lard pointless bureaucracy onto a reconstruction that replaces wooden pipes and provides earthquake protection, without expanding river impact? NDP environment critic Rob

Fleming hammered away at the B.C. Liberals about this in the spring, reminding them Auditor General John Doyle had exposed a lack of resources in the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, even before Ottawa’s changes. Fleming makes it sound like a huge new burden has been dumped on B.C. - false. Provincial assessment already must be done with the participation of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Transport Canada, the provincial ministries of natural resources and energy and mines, and, of course, aboriginal communities. This is why it’s so long and expensive. Don’t be fooled into believing that a federal review would go out and count the tadpoles and caribou again. It’s only the desk jobs that have proliferated. There weren’t just two levels of duplicate review, but three. Earlier in their mandate, the B.C. Liberals exempted major projects, such as mines and energy generation, from local government control, citing the “provincial interest” similar to the federal authority over projects that cross provincial borders. I agree with the NDP that B.C. environmental assessment needs more resources, in particular to do the follow-up on approved projects, as called for by the auditor general. Forest management needs more money, too. All the more reason not to waste resources on political gestures. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Reader likes Black’s refinery concept To the editor: Media mogul David Black has my full support for his proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery near Kitimat to process heavy oil from the Enbridge pipeline. I’ve had the same idea myself. Why should we let the Asian countries buy our Canadian crude oil and refine it for their markets when we could add value by refining it here in BC and shipping them the finished product? This strategy would create local jobs for our own citizens and address the environmental concerns

around oil tankers travelling in British Columbia’s coastal waters. I know Alberta wants to do this because I worked on a project in East Edmonton (a stone’s throw from the refineries in Fort Saskatchewan) that would have seen it become a reality. As long as Enbridge meets the conditions and standards set out by the premier, moving heavy oil from Alberta through a pipeline would be a heck of a lot better than shipping it by rail or truck. That’s why B.C. should be working with Alberta on exactly the kind of joint

interprovincial venture Mr. Black is proposing, a venture that would bring value-added tertiary oil refining to B.C. along with the heavy oil pipeline. Shipping gasoline, jet fuel and other refined oil products by tanker is just as practical as shipping crude oil and a lot safer from an environmental standpoint. So let’s not waste this opportunity and the revenue and jobs it could bring to our province. There’s a lot we could do here in B.C. with a piece of the oil industry pie. Roop Virk Chilliwack

As we age, it seems we need more medications but it is true that some of the doses of these medications can be reduced later in life or even discontinued altogether. However, no drug should be discontinued without your doctor’s OK and stopping a drug “cold turkey” is not recommended. Men’s sperm count is sensitive to temperature changes. The higher the temperature, the lower the sperm count. Choice of underwear has a bearing on this. Boxer shorts provide a lower temperature environment than briefs that hold the testicles close to the body. However, briefs are not a male contraceptive. Those nutritional charts on food packages shows sugar content in “grams”. “Grams” is a unit of weight. How many grams in one teaspoonful (a unit of volume)? The answer is 4.2 grams.

RCMP looking for tips on shoplifters POLICE REPORT 100 Mile RCMP responded to 82 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Excessive speeders There were two incidents of excessive speed during the past week. The speed ranges were 46 and 53 km/h over the posted speed limit. Neither of the vehicle operators was from the 100 Mile House area. Shoplifters get rings On Aug. 23, 100 Mile RCMP received a report that two females entered a business in the 100 block of Birch Avenue.

While one of the females attempted to distract the employee, the other stole a small display case containing approximately $500 in silver rings. The females left the area in a silver SUV. There was no other vehicle information provided. They were also implicated in another theft from another business in a nearby location. The suspects are described as possibly being First Nations. Anyone having information regarding these two thefts is asked to call the 100 Mile House RCMP at 250-395-2456, or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Drinking driver On Aug. 21, 100 Mile Traffic Services responded to a num-

ber of complaints of a brown Dodge Ram Charger being operated in an erratic manner in the Jens Street area of 100 Mile. When Police arrived on scene, the vehicle was observed on the lawn in front of a residence on Jens Street. The vehicle was running and the driver was sitting behind the wheel. The operator, a 21-year-old male resident of 100 Mile House, displayed symptoms of having consumed liquor. An approved screening device was administered and the result was a fail. He requested to provide another sample, which was also a fail. The driver met the criteria and was subsequently administered a 90-day

immediate driving prohibition. His vehicle was seized and impounded for 30 days.

The driver also received violation tickets for driving without due care and open liquor.

The Chung family would like to express a heart felt thank you to the community, friends and family for their support and generosity with the recent auction/dinner for Tom Chung. It was a huge success, made possible by the overwhelming amount of donations, support and love. THANK YOU!

The Big Bar Creek forest fire in the Big Bar Ferry Road and Jesmond area, some 40 kilometres west of Clinton, was 90 per cent contained as of Aug. 28. The current size of the wildfire is 406 hectares (1,003 acres) and is still under the active status. Discovered on Aug. 21, there was an immediate evacuation order for some 50 people. However, it was rescinded the next day, as fire crews started to get the blaze under control. An Evacuation Alert was in effect for the area, but was rescinded by the Thompson-Nicola Regional District on Monday (Aug. 27). The Cariboo Fire Centre responded to the forest fire with personnel, aircraft and heavy equipment. It used air tankers dropping retardant, six helicopters bucketing water, multiple pieces of heavy equipment to build firebreaks, 117 firefighters and a specialized inci-

dent management team to battle the blaze. Two structures were involved in this interface fire. During the past weekend, crews had a fight on their hands due to the steep terrain, higher temperatures and windy conditions. On Aug. 27, resources on this fire included 82 firefighting personnel, as well as a specialized incident management team. They also attacked the fire with two helicopters and three pieces of heavy equipment. Crews worked toward further containment by mopping up the areas between the firebreak and the main body of the fire. They have been making their way up the steep slopes with hoses and hand tools and are continuing to mop up hot spots. The cause of the fire is unknown, but it is currently under investigation. For the latest information on fire activity, conditions and prohibitions, see the Wildfire Management Branch website at www.bcwildfire.ca.

EXPERTS Learn more from those who have the answers! A: Definitely. But won’t the premium be higher? Probably – but still cheap compared to the alternative. In the case of Peebles v. Wawanesa Insurance, Peebles had the usual fire insurance – but wasn’t living at his house. When the house burned down, the Court decided that Wawanesa didn’t have to pay Peebles anything at all. What is fascinating about the case is that the house wasn’t vacant - according to the definition of vacancy in the insurance policy. Nonetheless, the Court decided that Peebles’ extended absences were a change in use “material to the risk.” In other words, if the insurance company had known that the house was virtually unused, they would have charged a much higher premium - or refused to provide coverage at all. (By the way, the Court also said that a home can be considered “vacant” even if someone is “checking up” on it regularly.) The moral of the story: Make sure you give the insurance agent ALL of the facts – preferably in writing! Article written by Centennial Law Corp. (Douglas E. Dent)

Do you have a question for our experts?

Q:

Should you take CPP early or wait?

A:

If you are in poor health, your life expectancy may be shorter than average. So chances are you’ll do better by starting your pension early and collecting more payments at a reduced rate. If you expect to collect Guaranteed Income Supplement and CPP, it may result in a clawback of up to 50 cents of GIS for every dollar of CPP pension. Your pension amount depends on averaging your pensionable earnings since age 18. If you stop working and do not take CPP right away, you will immediately start adding more years of zero earnings to the calculation. This will in turn make your benefit go down. If you decide to take the income but do not need it, you can always put it in a TFSA account and withdraw it later which will not trigger a claw-back on your GIS payments at age 65. If you are in good health and continue to earn a good income, then you are better off to delay it until at least 65. If you delay it after age 65 up to age 70 then you will receive an increased amount. All information provided is collected with care, and we are not responsible for any omissions or errors.

Q:

Why is my water hard even though I can hear the water softener regenerating at night?

A: There are several reasons this could be happening. The most common one is that the softener is out of salt: if you can’t see any salt in the brine tank, add up to a maximum of one bag. Another reason is that the salt has become stuck together and can’t do its job (salt bridge). If you can see salt in the tank but it’s been longer than usual since you added salt and the water is hard, it is likely a salt bridge. To remedy this, the salt will need to be removed from the tank and replaced. Consult your owner’s manual for instructions on this. If neither of these fixes help, your system may be plugged at some point and you should consult an experienced technician.

What are Private Health Service Plans and would my small business benefit from having one?

A: Private Health Service Plans (PHSP) are a great choice for Canadian companies (sole proprietors, partnerships and incorporated companies) and their employees. They deliver better benefits for less cost to the business and a tax-free benefit to employees. Simplified, a PHSP is a contract between a business and usually a third party administrator. Funds are paid into a PHSP by the employer and become a business expense. Medical expenses reimbursed to the employees are a taxfree benefit. Eligible medical expenses are virtually the same as those that are allowed for personal medical tax credit on your personal income tax return. For more information contact Angela Binns, Certified General Accountant.

Seniors save with ICBC

Q: A:

I’m 65 years old, can I save with ICBC?

Yes you can. When you turn 65 years old, if you use your vehicle for pleasure use only, you might qualify for the “Seniors” rate class and save on your ICBC policy. The vehicle must be registered to an individual or leased to an individual. The vehicle CAN NOT be driven to or from or part way to or from work. The vehicle CAN NOT be used for business or commercial use. Both the owner and the principal operator must be 65 years of age. In the case of joint ownership or lease, one of the owners or lessees must be age 65 or over and the principal operator must be age 65 or over. There are also “Seniors” rate classes for Motorhomes, Motorcycles and Collector Vehicles. When you turn age 65, you will only pay $17.00 for your 5 year driver license renewal instead of $75.00. If you have a higher license than a class 5 that requires a medical exam, and you have retired, you may downgrade your drivers license to a class 5. You then have 3 years to upgrade your license back to the class of license prior to the downgrade without having to take any driver testing. You will, however, need to have a medical exam completed by your doctor.

Q: My Computer seems to be much slower than it used to be. What can be done? A:

A slow computer can be caused by many issues. You may not have enough RAM . Windows updates and service packs may increase the RAM usage in your computer and memory upgrades may be necessary to keep pace. Too many programs that are no longer used or programs that did not uninstall properly can leave behind a hefty and messy Windows Registry file. Loading an unwieldy registry can cause slowdowns. You should be careful, however, in attempting cleanup of the registry with the wrong tools. Not enough hard disk space can slow a computer down. Increase space by upgrading to a larger hard disk or simply cleaning out old files and programs you no longer need. You hard disk should be defragmented on a regular basis. Windows Vista and 7 will defrag the hard disk weekly by default. Older operating systems may need to be done manually. Faulty hardware can also be a problem. Keep your computer fans and vents clear of dust and lint. Check that capacitors on the circuit boards are not bad. Voltages from the power supply may be off or varying out of tolerance. The CPU and chipset may need to be cleaned and re-heatpasted to cool properly. Bring your computer to the professionals at Gold Rush Technologies to have these problems assessed and corrected.

Q: I’ve never had a cell phone. Which is better for me, a prepaid or post-paid phone? A: First, the difference. A prepaid, or pay-as-you-go phone has no contract and its’ use is limited to the funds on your account; no funds, no phone. A post-paid phone has virtually unlimited use and you get a bill at the end of the month. Don’t confuse a post-paid phone with a contract. The contract is something you sign in exchange for receiving certain promotions, like a better price on your phone. If you don’t want a contract, you simply pay full price for the phone. You can add funds on your prepaid account many ways; automatically, using a credit card or seeing us in the store to buy “minutes” in $15, $25, $50 or $100 increments. These funds will expire at varying times if you don’t use them up first, or you can carry them over by adding more funds before the expiry date. Prepaid accounts now have many options to limit your costs, including unlimited texting and data use (internet). Prepaid phones are best if you don’t make many calls, use little or moderate data, and mostly text. This is the reason many parents buy prepaid phones for their kids, plus it ensures that they don’t get any surprises at the end of the month. We also recommend basic prepaid phones for people who only want a cell phone for emergency use. We recommend putting $100 onto your account, as it doesn’t expire for a year and brings your monthly cost to a minimum while still allowing you the talk time when you need it. Whatever your needs, I know we can find the right product for you. Come and see us today!

It was a sunny day for the Second Annual Kidney Walk, with the exception of a very light spit of rain at the onset. “The event was absolutely wonderful,” says Kidney Walk co-ordinator Dale Phelps. “We didn’t make our goal, but for our little community, I think we did better than some larger centres, considering there were a lot of other events going on around the Cariboo. We had a lot of dedicated people come down and helped us out big time.” The walkers were welcomed back into the park by the Williams Lake Pipe and Drum Band, following their walk around the marsh at the South Cariboo Visitor Centre.

Local clubs do well at show and sale Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Rewards of the 4-H season were realized for area members at the 54th Annual Williams Lake and District 4-H Show and Sale at the Williams Lake Stockyards, Aug. 17-22. Some 200 young participants, who came from clubs reaching as far south as Clinton and north to Williams Lake and west to the Chilcotin. Members began working on their projects last fall and the list of entries at the show included horse, beef, sheep, rabbit, dog, poultry, small engines, gardening and photography. The show culminated in the naming of champions and reserve champions in each category and then there was a live auction of many of the projects. On the local front, Wyatt Miles of Highland Valley 4-H was a big winner in the beef division with both the Grand Champion Heifer and

WALK… from page A15 to honour those who have lost their battle to the disease. Performances by Ben Johnson, Laura Kelsey, and the 2012 Cariboo Idols went on throughout the day. Funds raised came from the generously donated silent auction items, miscellaneous donations at the park, T-shirt sales, online and sponsor donations. Phelps says she is thinking about retiring after this year due to some personal health issues. “I would love to see someone carry on what I have started. I would greatly appreciate that and I will still be there to help out.” To contact Phelps, phone 250-397-0023.

Highland Valley 4-H members Colton Monical, left, with his red Angus/ Gelvbieh cross named Thirteen, and Wyatt Miles with his Charolais, Corona, were both showing at the 54th Annual Williams Lake and District 4-H Show and Sale recently. Top Charolais Female along with first place in Beef Weight Class 1. The Highland club also won an Honour Award for Highest Rally Participation by a Club. The Canim Valley club was also in the ribbons with Laura Dewsbury’s entry in the sheep division winning Reserve Champion Market Lamb and first place in Sheep Class 1 Weight Class. Paige Archie won Grand Champion Ewe Lamb, while the Canim Valley club won both Group of Market Lambs and Group of Ewe Lambs. Jolee Campbell

won Best Groomed Sheep and second place in Sheep Class 1 Weight Class. In Class 2 competition, Annie Issac had the first place sheep and Ainsley Dewsbury won second place. Brett Archie was Reserve Champion in the Small Engines category.

While 4-H was once restricted to agricultural interests only, Jackie Halliday, key leader of Williams Lake District 4-H, says almost any interest can qualify now. “Now, kids who aren’t necessarily farm kids can still participate in 4-H and sell something at the auction.”

Prior to the auction, she adds, participants sent out invitations to prospective buyers and that factored into the success of the event. She says the value of being involved in 4-H reaches far beyond winning ribbons and fetching a good price at the auction. “Most of the kids start out shy and then some go on to be Stampede Queens. It’s amazing to see their transformation and accomplishments.” Participating in the show and sale is an important component, Halliday adds. “The kids get to show their projects with other clubs outside of their own and measure themselves against new people and new judges. They really enjoy the social aspect, which is a big part of it, too.”

Four steps to adjust micrometer and telescopic sights. 1. Locate on the chart the exact centre of at least three carefully fired shots, using same hold and sightsetting. For example, suppose centre of group is small circle in upper right hand quarter of the chart, at the crossing points of lines 3L and 3D. 2. Following the vertical line we come to the figure 3L. This means that to ring the next group on the vertical centre line requires that you move your rear sight 3 minutes-of-angle to the LEFT. If your sight reads in minutes-of-angle this means you must move it 3 clicks to the LEFT. If in 1/2 minutes-of-angle, 6 clicks, and if in 1/4 minutes-of-angle, 12.

Hunting Guide

The latest and greatest in hunting gear Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Time can be at premium for those who like to hunt, so manufacturers are always coming up with new gizmos and gadgets to maximize the hunting experience and minimize time spent on the trail. Equipment, such as camouflage clothing, has been on the market for decades, but small improvements make a big difference for those who don’t like to go home empty-handed. Joanne Dyck, sales associate at Screamin’ Reel Fly and Tackle in Donex Pharmacy & Department Store, is an avid hunter and she says camouflage clothing is always a popular purchase in the store. She adds innovations, such scent control in the fabric, makes the garments that much more efficient for the wearer. “It hides a human scent. A lot of people buy scent eliminator separately but this makes it easy.” Another popular feature in camouflage clothing is low-noise fabric, which many manufacturers are now using. The soft material allows the wearer to move about without alerting game with the rustle associated with some other fabrics. A staple item for hunters is a game call and Dyck says most people use some kind

HUNTER’S

HEADQUARTERS

For Laser Range¿nders Arlene Jongbloets photo

Joanne Dyck of Screamin’ Reel at Donex Pharmacy & Department Store shows off some of the hottest gear that hunters will be seeking out this season. of a call. She says the most popular in the South Cariboo area are moose, deer and elk. “They’re really useful if you see an animal and want to stop it. Often the animal will stop and look, and give you an advantage.” Dyck notes a musthave for many hunters is a trail camera, which scouts a given area for game prior to a hunter going out. The device is fastened to a tree and left for a period of time. A motion detector activates a camera when an animal comes within range and it records images for the hunter to see later. The device is popular because it can eliminate extra time

spent in the bush just waiting and watching for the presence of game. Range finders are a staple for hunters but newer and better models are out this year, she adds. “They’re always improving them. They’ll tell you how far away the animal is and the newer ones take into consideration the ‘droppage’ for a bullet or hunting arrow in its trajectory. It compensates and shows you where you have to aim.” The basics, such as binoculars, camping and safety gear, knives and global positioning systems, are always equipment hunters are looking for.

Hunting Guide

Better to go into the bush safely A huge component of hunting is safety, and when things go wrong out in the bush, the South Cariboo Search and Rescue (SAR) team is often called for help. SAR search manager James Seeley says hunter safety is basically a matter of common sense, but there are a few key precautions that should be taken to ensure a good outcome. Their most common call-out is for people who are overdue from a hunting trip, he adds. “People usually phone us between 10 p.m. and midnight to report someone overdue and our response is

based on age and phys- with that informaical condition.

He adds it’s energy snacks, such as easier to find people protein bars and nuts, if they are not moving and bringing along around. extra water is also Some of the basics important. to remember when “The two things going out in the bush that get people, who include leaving an are stuck out overitinerary and route night, are they get information with dehydrated and hyposomeone and sticking thermic. Take a lighter to it. Leaving a note along and make sure

you can start a fire.” Toilet tissue is useful as it can be dipped into a fuel tank and used as fire-starter, he notes. A common mistake made by hunters is relying on a GPS unit and then having the batteries run down, Seeley says, adding people should pack extra batteries or a compass and have the knowledge to use it. Noting most area residents head out adequately prepared for their hunting trip, Seeley says it’s usually people from outside the South Cariboo who are unfamiliar with the territory that have the problems. His SAR team is

HUNT… from page A21 in, another came out and hit the ground. It took quite a while to figure out what was happening. It was moose fever, and it had me in its grip! While I was trying to sort out the problem of the ejection of unfired shells, Butch or Wayne managed to shoot one of the moose. Now, I figure we were more than sporting about giving those moose fair warning as to what our intentions were. The moose “we” shot (notice I used the word “we”, well I was there wasn’t I?) wasn’t very sports minded. He was shot on our side of this big swamp and then ran across to the other side. Wayne made a good attempt at walking on water. He threw up spray like a water skier as he crossed that swamp right behind the moose. Butch was following in his wake. I was bringing up the rear, still trying to figure out how to keep the shells in my gun. Wayne put the finishing touches on the moose. While they

started the job of cutting and gutting, I headed across the swamp and back to the house for the saw, which we had forgotten. When I got back, I crossed the swamp again, leaping from grass clump to grass clump, trying not to get wet. Butch and Wayne quartered the moose. They lifted one of those quarters up on my shoulder and pointed the way back across the swamp. This wasn’t going to be bad, I thought. The hop to the first solid clump of grass, about 20 inches away, went OK. Then that

hunk of meat must have gained weight in a hurry. Every hop to every clump came up short. A couple of solid clumps sank instantly until I was up to my waist in water. Then I would have to climb out again. Finally, we were back on dry land. I laid down for a breather, pinned down by that quarter of moose. After about 15 minutes, the sweat started to turn to ice on me. I asked Butch and Wayne if they would lift the quarter up to standing height so I could adjust my shoulder under it. They lifted it up as I

clung to it. There was no other way I was going to get to my feet. By some miracle, I managed to pack it 50 or 60 feet to the car. By then, Wayne was there with the fourth quarter. We managed to get the car loaded and back to Butch’s place. When it came time to cut up my share, someone asked how many steaks I wanted. My answer was “roasts, only roasts.” I’d had enough of cutting and wrapping moose by then. To this day, I’m still wondering what tree my shot ended up in.

Hunting & Fishing

SAFETY Can’t get enough hunting and fishing and looking forward to your next trip? Don’t get so caught up in the excitement that you forget safety rules. As you prepare to bag some game or catch a fish, keep these tips in mind: HUNTING

FISHING

• Learn how to operate your firearms or bow. • Make an itinerary and give it to someone at home. • Wear blaze orange and eye and ear protection. • Hunt with others whenever possible. Know where your companions are at all times. • Treat all firearms as though they are loaded. • Know your target and what’s beyond it. • Keep your finger outside the trigger guard and off the trigger until ready to shoot. • Never climb a fence, tree or ladder with a loaded firearm or bow and arrows. • Unload firearms and bows when not in use. Store ammunition and arrows separately. • Don’t drink or do drugs while hunting.

• Always wear life jackets in a boat • Fish with others whenever possible. • Choose a safe area to fish in. • Make an itinerary and give it to someone at home. • Wear appropriate shoes and light clothing in case you are pulled into the water. • Carry spare tackle and gear. Don’t try to retrieve any that falls into the water. • Bring safety gear and use it. • Check the weather reports before leaving for your trip. Head for home if the weather takes a bad turn. • Be careful when launching and retrieving boats. • Handle fish with care. • Don’t drink or do drugs while fishing.

Agility dogs put their best paws forward Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Entertainment was endless at the Cariboo Agility Team (CAT) Dog Agility Trial during which 40 dogs of all breeds put their training to the test for points and titles. The annual event was held at Lumberman’s Park in 100 Mile House, Aug. 25-26. Of the 338 runs made during the two-day event, 101 qualified, which CAT president and event judge Roxanne Ziefflie says is about what she’d expect. The challenge for the dogs was to run an obstacle course in a race for time and accuracy, relying only on their handler’s voice and body movement for direction. Many of the dogs were old hands, but for some, including curious beagle named Essie, this was their first trial. She and her junior division handler, Tennale Sailor of Williams Lake, became crowd favourites, as Essie worked throughout the event on putting the task

Australian shepherd, Louie, owned by Ray LePage of Vernon, was at the 100 Mile House dog agility trial event striving to complete the final two qualifying runs needed to earn his Agility Trial Champion of Canada title. at hand ahead of her natural instinct to follow an interesting scent. Midway through her first run she lost concentration and wandered over to check out the crowd, but by her third run, she got it figured out, says Ziefflie. “Beagles are usually hard to handle. They are

a scent dog and put their nose to the ground and they’re off. It takes a lot of patience and training to teach them to keep their nose up.” For seasoned Australian shepherd, Louie, who is an 11-yearold rescue dog, and his 85-year-old owner, Ray LePage, of Vernon, the

trial was a special one. LePage trained and trialed Louie to within six qualifying runs of his Agility Trial Championship of Canada title. An injury last year put LePage out of competition, but handler Yvonne Babji of Lac le Jeune picked up the leash and set out to finish what LePage had started.

On arrival at the 100 Mile House trial, Louie needed just two more qualifying runs for the championship. He qualified one out of the three allotted runs, hampered by a fall from one of the obstacles. “We’re still in the hunt for one more,” says Babji. “Ray LePage is an inspiration. Imagine still

enjoying playing with your best friend at the age of 85.” A few CAT members earned their titles, including a Papillon named Ty, handled by Brenda Witt. Ty finished the weekend with his Agility Dog of Canada (ADC) title. Nova Scotia duck toller, Nina, handled by Laura Norie, and cattle dog, Dizzy, with handler Jan Wherley also earned their ADC. Australian shepherd, Jade, with handler Sandra Bater from Abbotsford earned her Expert Gambler Bronze title. Many of the competitors camped at the site and their camping fees, which totalled $340, were donated to Mixed up Mutts dog rescue. Ziefflie says the weekend was a total success, made even better by the attention of District of 100 Mile staff who ensured that the grounds were well maintained and water was available for the dogs. “They spoiled us rotten and everyone notices it.”

Gymkhana season ends with changing of the guard The 100 Mile & District Outriders Club gymkhana series ended on Aug. 26 with the last of four events and with the announcement of this year’s all-around winners. Riders had a chance to accumulate points at monthly gymkhanas, which began in May and vie for prizes that included saddles for the winners in each age division, belt buckles for second and halters for third place. In the Peewee division only, the winner Cassidy Kolisnyk of 70 Mile House received a buckle, and reserve champion, Angus Paul of Big Lake was presented with a horse blanket. The Junior category winner was Amy Hume of Williams Lake (WL) and reserve was Brianna Billy, (WL). Theresa Inscho (WL) rounded out the top 3. Taylor Stewart of 100 Mile House (100) was the Intermediate division champ and Raven Gentry, Lone Butte (LB), was second, and Callie

The 100 Mile & District Outriders Club ended its their four-event gymkhana series Aug. 26 at the Outriders grounds, with the awarding of prizes to the top 3 overall winners in five age divisions. Hume (WL) in third. Senior first-place winner was Nicole Hoessl of 105 Mile. Courtney Mailhot of Big Lake finished second, and Tanya Johnson (100) was third. The Jack Benny division, 50 years and older, saw Sandra Mulvahill (WL) take first place, Dawnna Robertson (100) sec-

ond, and Tracy Gentry (LB) was the third. Gymkhana co-ordinator, Jen Szigety has organized the series since its inception six years ago, but with a baby on the way, she’ll be handing over the reins to Robertson next season. “She knows the ropes

because she’s been there for all the gymkhanas since the beginning.” Szigety says the series has been a good one with obvious skill development seen among the riders. “Cassidy Kolisnyk started the year being lead around and now she’s riding on her own. It’s a great learning environment and you also have a chance to win. Everyone helps to school each other and it’s really satisfying.” The final gymkhana saw 24 riders compete and the top 3 results in each division from first to third were: Pole Bending Peewee: Paul; and Kolisnyk. Junior: A. Hume; Micheal Gulbranson; Inscho. Intermediate: R. Gentry; Stewart; and C. Hume. Senior: Johnson; and Hoessl. Jack Benny: Dennis Gunn; Robertson; and Carol Thorne.

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!

Fun at 70 Mile House, never a dull moment By Earl Cahill The 70 Mile House, which was 70 miles from Lillooet on the Cariboo Waggon Road, was built in 1862 and became a popular stopping place with the travelling public. It had changed hands before Matt Porter purchased the roadhouse in 1922, and with a post office, it was a very busy place at times. In 1952, the building suffered the fate of many of the roadhouses on the Cariboo Road when it was completely destroyed by fire. During the 1930s, my friends, the McConnell kids, invited me to spend the summer with them visiting their grandparents Ma and Matt Porter at 70 Mile House. I really enjoyed these visits, which continued on into the ’40s and there was never a dull moment at the 70 Mile. We were always there for the haying at the Thompson Meadows on Stormy Road about 10 miles north of the 70. There was a small cabin and barn at the meadow with tents set up for a couple of cowboys and us kids. The haying was done by hand and horsepower, cut by mower, raked to dry,

loaded onto slings on sloops, pulled up by a rope attached to an A-frame and dumped onto the stack. A wagon was loaded at the same time we stacked and a couple of us would get to take the load back to

the 70 Mile barn for the winter feed. It was hard work, but we always had fun at it. If we got bored, we could always hop on a horse and race around the meadow See 70 MILE… page A34

BARKER Evelyn Evelyn Barker, born Eveyln Thacker on September 14, 1929, passed away suddenly on August 17, 2012 after a brief illness. Evelyn moved to 100 Mile in August of 1969 with her husband Lloyd (who predeceased her) and her daughters Arlene (Joe) Rushton, Karen Smith (Rob), Gale (Percy) Ogden and her sons Rod (Doris) Barker and Rick (Marci) Barker. We will all miss her terribly as will her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Evelyn also leaves behind her sister Dorothy, her brother Ed and many nieces and nephews. Evelyn was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Nothing made her happier then spending time at family gatherings with all those she loved. We will miss her cares and her prayers but know she has joined many loved ones who have gone before her. We believe God has said, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” There will be an Open House Celebration of Life for family and friends on Sat., Oct. 6, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship at the 108.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.

GOTT Roderick Gibson Roderick (Rod) Gibson Gott of Kamloops passed away peacefully on August 13th, 2012 at the age of 93. He is survived by his wife of 51 years ‘Jean’ and his sister ‘Gloria Young’, his children: Cathy Lynne (Alex) Burton, Randy (Pam) Gott, Debby Gott, Cathy Liz Slater (Johnny), Jock (Janet) Slater; 11 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, one niece and two nephews. He was predeceased by his grandson Paul and son Jay. Rod was born in Vancouver in 1918. From a very early age his talent playing sports (tennis, golf, hockey), wood carving, fishing (in 1947 he caught the record Steelhead in the Seymour River) and music (played banjo and organ) was very evident. His love of the great outdoors helped develop and fine tune his talent for painting. Through 1960 on, Rod managed to balance his accounting business with golf (Burnaby Golf & Country Club champion), playing the organ and ‘gone fishin’.’ Rod’s passion for painting never waned as he sat at his easel almost daily until December, 2011. Rod (Dad) we all love and miss you! Special thanks to staff at both Royal Inland Hospital and The Ponderosa Lodge where Rod spent his final days in declining health due to a broken hip/wrist. There will be no service by request. Memorial donations may be made to either the Hospital or the Lodge. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home • 250-554-2577 Condolences can be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Jennifer M. 1925 - 2012 Jennifer M. Wolfe passed away peacefully on Aug. 21, 2012 at Fischer Place after a courageous struggle with dementia.

The family would like to thank Dr. Mah and the staff at Fischer Place for their kindness and compassion. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, B.C. V1Y 5L3, in memory of her late husband Lloyd, daughterin-law Fatima, great-granddaughter Maddison, and grandson Jonathan Wolfe.

The memory of a good person is a blessing. Proverb 10:7

SHEETS George Ellis On Friday, Aug. 17, 2012, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend George passed away peacefully after a fiveweek hospital stay. George was born on Feb. 19, 1933 in Sundre, Alberta to Christopher and Hazel (née McCutcheon). He had two brothers and four sisters. The family moved to Coquitlam, B.C. when George was 12 years old. It was there at the age of 16 that he met his future bride, Patricia Stafford. After a five year courtship, they married on Aug. 27, 1954. George is survived by his wife Pat, daughters: Sandra Irving (Rick), Lynda Zonruiter (Harold) and son David (Kathie), grandchildren: Greg (fiancé Shea) and Katie Irving; Christopher and Rebecca Zonruiter; Laura and Melissa Sheets; sister Myrtle Goeson and many nieces and nephews. George was predeceased by his parents, brothers Mervin and Jim, sisters Frances, Lorraine and Ruth; and many beloved brothers and sisters-in-law. George’s interests were many: he loved hunting, fishing, country music, the Cariboo, animals, gardening and walking with his buddy, Bruce. He was a hard worker all his life and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone, anytime. Some of the organizations that benefited from his years of service were: Port Coquitlam Hunting and Fishing Club, he taught youth gun safety and shooting, the Kinsmen Club, Red Cross, 100 Mile Garden Club and 100 Mile Community Garden. He also liked to meet daily with the A&W coffee group to partake in his favourite pastime of all - talking and learning about other people’s lives. A celebration of life will be held on Sat., Sept. 15, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at the Creekside Senior Centre. In lieu of flowers, donations in George’s memory may be made to Mill Site Fischer Place Auxiliary, Hospice or the Red Cross. A life well-lived leaves its gentle pattern on the hearts of all… and the world is a lovelier place because one person touched it with warmth and goodness and grace ~ Jessica St. James

You passed with your mind intact, no pain and no regrets. What a gift you were. Rest in peace, Dad! You were so loved, but will be missed so much more than that!

IT’S BACK! Earl Cahill photo collection

70 MILE… from page A33 or think of some excuse to ride back down to the 70. In the winter of 1944, David McConnell and I hauled hay by sleigh from the meadow to 70 Mile - a 10-hour round trip. We would burrow down in the hay to keep warm. The Department of Highways never charged us for being overweight or for impeding traffic, as the most cars we ever counted on a round trip was seven. When a vehicle trying to pass us got stuck in a snow bank, we would unhook the team and pull them out — even a Greyhound bus that was impatient to pass. With a little shovelling and David handling the team, we got it back on the road. Nobody got too upset in those days. This was the “Cariboo Way.”

During a weeklong feeding binge, two hungry black bears have ruined berry picking season for many residents. Flocks of birds are the usual culprits when it comes to stripping a Saskatoon bush of its perfectly ripe berries, but this year black bears were ruthless, breaking the stalks of dozens of well-established bushes that have provided residents with bushels of delicious late summer juicy gems. Little could be done to deter the bears, often observed along the roads and in yards in even the hottest times of the warmest days. They must have provided quite a spectacle for unsuspecting travellers stopping at the McDonald rest stop as significant bear sign was found around the bushes in the fields below the lookout. Although unseen from the road, they are easily observed by those travellers getting out of their vehicles to enjoy the view. Wild raspberries, maturing at

the roadsides are beginning to ripen. These sweet and seedy berries are difficult to pick and rarely harvested by residents and the bears are welcome to them.

Welcome relief While many residents are lamenting about the lack of fishing success this month, the lake is getting a lot of use by recreational users. The hot weather in August lured many residents to the lake to cool down. Rarely does the lake remain calm for the entire day and any amount of breeze blowing

across the water has a welcome cooling affect. For the couple of stifling days during which there was little air movement, the welcome cool night temperatures due to our high elevation, were enough to revitalize the warmblooded humans and their pets for the following hot days. Shallow bays are choice locations for boatloads of swimmers keen on a refreshing dip. All kinds of new watercraft and flotation devises are appearing around the lake, including paddleboards and convertible kayaks, which allow users to enjoy the cooling effect of the refreshing water.

Come celebrate the bounty of the South Cariboo at the annual South Cariboo Community Fall Fair 2012. The longtime tradition runs Sept. 7-9 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre and grounds with a trade show, produce, hobby and craft exhibits. There will also be live entertainment, great food and a horse show. Exhibit chairperson M-J Cousins says the fair is all about celebrating the talents and achievements of community members, from their successes in the garden and kitchen to behind the camera lens or in the

craft room. There are close to 400 categories of competition for exhibitors and a mountain of ribbons to be awarded, so if your talent is making jam or growing gargantuan zucchinis, there’s something for you. Cousins encourages people of all ages and interests to get into the spirit and enter something. The exhibits will all be found on display in the curling rink. Entries for the Cariboo Fall Arrangement Outdoor Container Contest, the Scarecrow Contest, and the Best Dressed Zucchini Contest will also be found in the curling rink and they will be judged by the public throughout the

organizations found in the South Cariboo. Outside in the ball diamond will be a children’s dream come true with the Kidzone, featuring four huge bouncy castles set up just for them.

DEKA DISTRICT DIANA FORSTER 250-593-2155

Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’ Association’s (DLDRA) Aug. 18 annual general meeting was poorly attended, perhaps due to the extreme heat. The executive remains the same, with the exception of

new director Marty Mahovlich who was warmly welcomed. Al Martin remains vice-president, assisted by secretary Penny Millway, treasurer Lorna Wiebe and directors Gail Davis, Marvel McCune, Joyce McKay and Wolf Zink. Any resident who wishes to put their name forward as a director is asked to contact Millway at 250-593-4521.

in wildlife behaviour. Hummingbird sightings are rare, as they start their southern migration. Ground squirrels have hibernated, accounting for the infrequency of badger sightings. Maturing waterfowl, which have survived the many perils of our wilderness, are becoming difficult to distinguish from their parents until they attempt to fly and give themselves away by their awkward takeoffs and landings.

Lawful lake use There is noticeable improvement of boating etiquette with respect to shoreline protection laws. Information distribution may be credited for the improvement, as well as several visits by Conservation Service officers checking for boating and fishing regulation compliance this summer.

In particular, we would like to thank Mel Torgerson and Ken Mills, who were so active in helping us with this year’s tournament. Unfortunately we did not have enough golfers registered and had to make the hard decision to cancel the tournament for this year. Thanks to the Free Press and the Wolfe Radio for their continued support of CCPL. Also thanks to Sunrise Ford and Central GM for sponsoring the hole-in-one prizes. We still will make plans to award a learner with this year’s award. For more information call Diana Badke at 250-706-8542 or Mel Torgerson at 250-644-9900.

Hill on the ball with aerator DEKA… from page B4 were discussed. The DLDRA had written to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure about the deep ruts, which make for difficult launching, and was hoping for results before long. Aerator action Congratulations to Higgins Lake resident Laurie Hill for being “on the ball” and contacting CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett when the aerator was removed from Higgins Lake early this month. Barnett did not need to be told of the importance of aerators to prevent winter fish die-off, and has arranged to have it returned. Thanks to her, it is anticipated that the fish will still be there next year for the many who love fishing this small peaceful lake. Exciting adventure Deka’s Alamu Durand, one of “The Country Pedlar” offspring, now 23, is off on an exciting adventure. On Aug. 20, the Thompson Rivers University Red Seal chef left for Wales, where he has been hired as the chef de partie at the New

Country Inn in Cardiff. En route, Alamu will spend several days in Scotland, and then has a work permit for a year. Grand opening C a m b r i a McKenzie is opening her gym between the Boulevard Cafe and Wildmans Rural Living Store at Interlakes Corner (in what used to be Backroad Signs). The grand opening is from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Sept. 1, and residents are invited to drop in. Cambria, the daughter of wellknown massage therapist, Desiree McKenzie, is a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor whose gym will be open varying hours six days a week. Webb Lake news On Sept. 1, 2010, an informational meeting was held regarding infilling development at Webb Lake. At that time, the intended development included five-acre lots, which is at variance with the Interlakes Official Community Plan. The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) has scheduled a public hearing for 7 p.m., Sept. 5 at Interlakes Hall, and it

should be noted that no five acres lots are included in the rezoning application. Instead, Bree Development is requesting nine lots, each measuring between 9.8 acres and 12.1 acres. This will be the residents’ last opportunity to speak on the matter. Another public hearing has been scheduled for at 100 Mile Community Hall on Sept. 11, starting at 7 p.m., to deal with rezoning applications for three separate Horse Lake properties, located near McMillan, Watson and Doman roads. One is for two lots, of five acres and nine acres. Another is for two lots, of 10 acres and 30 acres. The third is for nine fiveacre lots. Interested par-

ties should attend the public hearing. Specific information can be obtained from CRD Area L Director Bruce Rattray at brat tray@cariboord.bc.ca, or if you are not online, by calling him at 250-593-9359.

Winter is coming soon; what can I do to make my outside stairs safer?

Total Living Area: 1801 sq. ft. • 3 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms

Slippery stairs are extremely dangerous. They can cause horrible falls and spills that can break bones and cause bruises. The key to eliminating the slipperiness on stairs is to deal with what is causing the slickness, such as snow, water or a generally slick surface. Keep up with ice and snow removal so it does not build up. Sprinkle winter salt on the stairs frequently. If you do not have salt, sprinkle sand or cat litter. If you seem to have an abnormal amount of snowfall or ice accumulation you will need to determine why. For instance, if you find 2 or 3 inches of ice on the stairs each time the snow melts and then freezes, the problem may be a faulty gutter or downspout near or above the stairs. Make sure the gutters and downspout are not plugged with leaves or ice, inhibiting the flow of water. Place adhesive non-slick strips on each step. Most home improvement retailers carry stair strips that help eliminate slickness. These are especially helpful with wood stairs that tend to be slick when wet.

FIRST LEVEL: 1233 sq. feet, foyer, kitchen, great room, master bedroom and master bath, second bedroom and bath. SECOND LEVEL: 568 sq. feet, large bedroom with bath, 10x26’11” loft, open on either side of loft over foyer and great room below. SPECIAL FEATURES: Entry porch and large rear porch, spacious great room and foyer open to second level, loft, entry to both master bath and second bath from master bedroom.

Cariboo Country Night a stomping good time Monika Paterson Free Press

Cariboo country night will include good old country music entertainment, barbecue steak dinner complete with all the fix-ins and an evening of dancing. This is what folks will find during the 13th Annual Cariboo Country Night at the Watch Lake Community Hall, Sept. 8. This popular concert, dinner and dance is hosted by the Watch Lake Green Lake Resort Guest Ranch & Business Association. (GLWLRGRBA) Mark McMillan, master of ceremonies for the evening, says they normally sell out every year. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., with music beginning at 5. There will be some games at 6 p.m. and a break for dinner at 6:30. A second dinner theatre concert set will begin at 7 p.m. before the floor is opened up

for the dance, beginning at 8. McMillan says the entertainment lineup includes 100 Mile House resident Leslie Ross and it will be her first time playing at the Cariboo Country Night. She has been singing and playing guitar since she was seven years old. Her music style includes a mix of easy listening and folk from the ’60s and ’70s, but she will entertain this audience with her numerous county selections. Ross says she has returned to entertaining on stage after a number of years of being away to raise her son. She has played at a number of venues around the Cariboo, including regular performances for the residents of Fischer Place and Mill Site Lodge. “I like to connect with people through music, and give back to the community.” Cowboy singer

Matt Johnston from Upper Clearwater will perform many of his original cowboy tunes. Johnston has been writing and performing at Cowboy Festivals, concerts and gatherings for more than a decade. In 2002 and 2003, he was nominated for the “Rising Western Star Award” by the Academy of Western Arts in Fort Worth, and again in 2010, for the “Male Western Vocalist.” Green Lake resident Ernie Doyle is returning again this year and is always a crowd favourite. He will entertain the crowd with his powerful booming voice

and good old-time country music. Doyle has never missed a Cariboo Country Night event, says McMillan. Funds raised from the evening will go to the GLWLRGRBA for area promotion in the tourism field and marketing of the Green Lake and Watch Lake resort area, adds McMillan. Tickets for the Cariboo Country Night are available at the 70 Mile General Store, Watch Lake Lodge, Little Horse Lodge, Ace High Resort and Meadow Springs Ranch, and are $25 a person, including dinner and dance.

Valentine Lake in Late Summer

V

alentine Lake is known for its good fishing and healthy supply of rainbow trout. Each year it is stocked with 10,000 rainbow trout yearlings of Blackwater strain. Blackwater trout are shoal foragers and will feed in the shallows. They are more active during the day than other strains of rainbow trout and have been known to go after larger prey. Non-salmonid fish, snails, mollusks and dragonflies are some of their standard food choices. In late summer, the best fishing can be early in the morning or later in the evening. Moving into fall, as the weather cools off, midday excursions can be successful. To target rainbow trout, anglers can try an Idaho Nymph, or leech patterns. Greens are good colours to try. A Tom Thumb or a mayfly may be useful as well.
