Ridership down but revenues up Service review in the works by BC Transit DANIKA M. HÉBERT Observer Reporter Fewer people are riding but revenue is up. At the Aug. 20 city council meeting, new city manager Byron Johnson reported on the city’s transit system and presented an annual performance summary. The report, based on the period between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012, found ridership in Quesnel has decreased by 10 per cent, from 73,014 in 2010/2011 while rev-

enue has increased by 5 per cent. “This is a good thing,” Johnson said. “Although the ridership is down, the city is making more money.” New equipment, which digitizes fare payment, has helped get more accurate revenue statistics. “We are seeing greater accuracy in financial reporting since the introduction of the GFI farebox,” the report said. Johnson mentioned ridership has been relatively flat province-wide.

“It is recognized that costs have decreased substantially and ridership has decreased, therefore BC Transit will be conducting a service review over the next several months,” the report stated. “This will be a comprehensive review that involves city staff and other stakeholders in the community. “Several informational presentations will be brought to council throughout the process.” The report also shows Quesnel is doing well with

costs affiliated with the transit system. The operational cost per hour for Quesnel was $9.12, well below the tier average of $10.53. The city saw a rise in operating costs, due, in part, to major cost drivers being fixed. The total cost per ride rose from $11.47 in 2011/2012 compared to $7.12 the previous year, a 25.7 per cent increase. Quesnel transit also saw a decrease in productivity, falling from 93 per cent in 2010/2011 to 91

per cent this year. While the revenue has risen in Quesnel, the city also kept their costs to a minimum. In the 2011/2012 budget, $900,213 was put aside for transit costs, of which $837,121 was used, leaving $63,090 or keeping the city seven per cent under budget. In terms of revenue hours, the city has kept them mostly the same, with a slight decrease of point one per cent between the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 reports.

Quesnel’s BC Transit is funded by the city of Quesnel, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) and BC Transit. Although BC Transit and CRD fund part of the program, decisions about fares, routes and service are made by the city, based on reports such as the one presented by BC Transit to the city.

Two Mile Flat residents sought Open House on fire protection services slated The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is hosting an open house for residents who live within the Two Mile Flat Fire Protection Boundary. The session takes place Sept. 10, 7 – 9 p.m. at the Quesnel Recreation Centre to provide information about the proposed new Two Mile Flat Fire Protection agreement. CRD staff and Quesnel Volunteer Fire Department members will be on hand to answer any questions and provide information to affected residents. Since 1963, Two Mile Flat fire protection services have been provided by the City of Quesnel Fire Department through a contract with the Province of British Columbia. The province has been collecting taxes from these residents and remitting them to the City of Quesnel in order to provide this service. The province informed the City of Quesnel and CRD the agreement for this service expires Dec. 31, 2012 and requested both organizations negotiate a new agreement to continue fire protection services to the Two Mile Flat area. Under the proposed

agreement, the City and CRD suggest to maintain the current service at the current tax rates. The level of fire protection service will not change; the only change will be that the CRD collects the taxes rather than the Province of B.C. However, to enable this new agreement, the CRD must establish a new service in order to tax for the continuation of fire protection services delivered by the City of Quesnel Fire Department. In order to establish the service, the CRD needs to receive approval from the residents. An information brochure and the official petition have been mailed to residents within the current Two Mile Flat Fire Protection Boundary. Completed petitions need to be returned to the CRD in person, or by mail, prior to Sept. 17. An unsigned or unreturned petition must be counted as a “no” vote. If the petition is not approved, fire protection services for Two Mile Flat ends Dec. 31 of this year. If residents require further information, visit the CRD online at cariboord.bc.ca or call us at 1-800-6651636 and speak with the Corporate Officer.

Grant writer tips The Northern Interior Communities Association (NICA) and the Cariboo Regional District Grant Writer program are co-hosting a grant writing workshop for community groups, organizations and charities from the Cariboo Chilcotin. The event takes place Sept.14 and 15, in the City of Williams Lake’s Council Chambers. The workshop and the one-on-one sessions are free and light refreshments will be available. Sept. 14, 7 – 9 p.m., NICA will provide a two hour presentation on grant writing. Groups can also register for a 30 minute one-on-one session with NICA staff members, which will be held the following day, Sept. 15, 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. The workshop will focus on how to write successful applications for the BC Community Gaming Grants program and its current intake for the Human and Social Services sector. The deadline for grant applications to this program is Nov. 30. The session will also provide valuable grant writing basics which can be applied to all funding program applications.

Community groups and organizations planning on attending are encouraged to bring along applications in progress, or previously completed submissions to receive feedback on how to improve their grant writing techniques. RSVP is required before Sept. 10, by emailing grantwriter@ cariboord.bc.ca or call the CRD at 250-392-3351 or toll free 1-800-6651636 and mention you are confirming your attendance for the grant writer workshop. Please specify if your community group would like a one-onone session and the preferred time. Time slots are available on a first-comefirst-serve basis. For more information about this workshop, contact NICA workshop

coordinator, Rhonda Dickson at 250562-2553 or email coordinator@ northernica.org. Information may also be obtained by contacting the CRD Grant Writer at grantwriter@ cariboord.bc.ca.

Autumn Moon Festival draws huge crowds More than 1500 visitors flocked to Barkerville, British Columbia’s annual Mid-Autumn Moon Festival last weekend, eager to help the National Historic Site of Canada celebrate its Chinese pioneers‌ and to sample the Festival’s traditional offering of tasty redbean moon cakes, Chinese musical performances, magic shows, dance, and other cultural exhibitions. This year’s MidAutumn Moon Festival, a part of Barkerville’s 150th anniversary season of special events, was made possible by a gift from Community Sponsor, McElhanney Consulting Services, Ltd. McElhanney Consulting Services,

founded in 1910 by British Columbia land surveyor William G. McElhanney, is now a major Canadian company specializing in engineering, surveying and mapping in the fields of transportation, structures, land development, drainage, water supply and treatment, sewage treatment and disposal, resource development and land administration. McElhanney’s goal is to provide personalized services tailored to local needs and supported by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists and professionals. The consulting company has completed projects throughout Canada and in over 70 other countries for

government, the private sector and international financial institutions. The funds donated by McElhanney went directly to the purchase of materials and supplies required to host the special event weekend, including moon cakes, lantern making supplies, prizes, and fireworks. “McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. once again is proud to be a part of the Barkerville Mid-Autumn Moon Festival,� Bill Cheung, Branch Manager at McElhanney Consulting & Services Ltd., said. “With McElhanney’s own involvement in the history of British Columbia over the past 100 years, we enjoy the opportunity

to look back at our past and appreciate the difficulties and challenges that our early settlers and First Nations had to contend with in this part of the world. McElhanney also congratulates the Chinese community which played such a primary role in the history of Barkerville and B.C. During Barkerville’s 150 year anniversary, this is a great time to celebrate the happy occasion of the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival.� This is McElhanney’s second gift to Barkerville and their second

OPINIONS Banking on voter amnesia

F

ormer finance minister Kevin Falcon’s departure reeks of jumping ship. Wednesday afternoon, Falcon announced he was leaving politics and would not be running in the 2013 election due to the customary excuse of needing more time with family. And fair enough. His wife is expecting their second miracle in February, right about the time he’d have to deliver his second provincial budget. No one can fault a man for wanting to focus on his family. But let’s get honest (yes, I realize the irony of using that term here.) Falcon did not choose to quit the team purely for family reasons. And he knows the game, he’s completely aware of how his hasty retreat is being deciphered. Falcon is jumping a sinking ship, even after he vowed to stick with the party win or lose. And his departure hits them at a time when they’re at their weakest. Not exactly a team player, nor one you want to see reemerge once voter amnesia inevitably settles in. And that’s what he’s banking on. Falcon has said he will not run in the 2013 election, but was quoted as saying “never say never” when asked if he was gone for good. Sadly, Falcon’s actions are not surprising or ground-breaking. Premier Christy Clark ducked out of provincial politics eight years ago only to reappear and run for the leadership. Voters need to pay more attention to the actions of political players rather than on the party. Falcon’s decision to bail when his team is in dire straights is indicative of poor leadership and poorer integrity. –Autumn MacDonald, Observer

Being tortured in paradise H

anging upside down and pleading to get off the colourful, yet horrendous ride called the Sky Diver at Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho was my least gleeful moment of the summer. My 12-year-old son agreed. “Let us down!” Sam begged the unhearing ride operator as his knee bled from being tossed and turned in every direction possible for what seemed like hours. “I’m going to throw up!” Having witnessed his episodes of car-sickness numerous times over the years, I knew he was serious about his feelings of nausea and prayed to the amusement park gods not to have a power outage as we hung helpless, eighty feet above ground. Luckily, my prayers were answered and we soon descended and escaped the bright purple cage that held us captive. Once we were safely standing, we swore off that particular ride for good.

Lori Welbourne

On A Brighter Note “Do you want to go on a rollercoaster?” I asked, eager to erase that memory and replace it with a truly exhilarating experience instead. “No,” Sam said, white as a ghost. “I need to do nothing for awhile.” It was an understandable reaction from a kid who had just spent five minutes trying not to squish his mom or lose his lunch. It was also our last day at the jam-packed park and he was ready for some downtime. We all were. After waiting in line for countless hours and eating overpriced junk food for three days straight, my husband and I discussed

complained about, they were now left with precious moments of pure delight, exactly the way my husband and I seemed to remember our amusement park days as children. “I’m done with theme parks,” my friend commented when we got back home. “They might be fun for kids, but they’re torture for parents. A relaxing vacation it’s not.” Okay, I have to agree, they’re not relaxing and some of it felt like torture to me too. Yet a lot of it was so much fun and watching the kids faces light up when they first found out about our surprise trip was something I’ll never forget. Next time we’ll just try to visit when it’s less crowded and we’ll do our best to avoid terrible rides like the Sky Diver. But the stale, salty popcorn? I’ll be eating that again for sure.

how we could have made our amusement park experience a little more amusing. “We could have smuggled in some healthy snacks,” I suggested as I munched on another tub of stale, salty popcorn. “And we could have come the following week when the American kids were back in school,” my husband said. Simple things we should have remembered from our trip to Disneyland two years prior. Yet as we talked in private of other things we could do differently so the next trip would be better, our kids only talked about what they loved. “That was the best trip ever!” our nine year old daughter exclaimed on our way home. “Especially the water park!” “It was,” Sam chimed in. “Can we go again next year?” Already forgetting the frustrating long lineups they had previously

FEEDBACK Pipeline proposal ‘reckless’ Editor: The Northern Gateway pipelines and the proposed refinery in Kitimat seem inefficient and reckless. Wouldn’t it be The main pipeline will pump about much safer and 375 thousand cheaper and better barrels of dense mud every for the economy to bitumen day diluted in 145 refine the bitumen thousand barrels natural gas in Alberta then of condensate. pipe high quality The condensate pipeline will oil to the coast – return the 145 eliminating all thousand barrels of condensate every the risk of spilling day. condensate in the So, every day 375 thousand barrels process? of bitumen will be piped and shipped and 290 thousand barrels of condensate (=2 x 145) will be piped and shipped. This extra 290 thousand barrels of condensate each day doubles the risk of a toxic spill and will use huge amounts of energy to pipe and ship. At the end of the line in Kitimat, David Black plans to refine the Bitumen into high quality crude. Wouldn’t it be much safer and cheaper and better for the economy to refine the bitumen in Alberta then pipe high quality oil to the coast – eliminating all the risk of spilling condensate in the process? Also, despite all the Enbridge controversy, foreign owned Kinder Morgan is going almost unquestioned with its plans to expand their similar Tran Mountain Pipeline through Vancouver. If that route is so much safer, maybe Enbridge should pipe their oil to Vancouver too. Along with double-hulled oil tankers, liners should also be required around the pipelines to contain any spill. Oil companies are heavily subsidized paying less than $8 barrel for royalties and selling the oil for well over $90/barrel, so they can obviously more than afford to pay for a safe efficient pipeline. With 804 Enbridge pipeline spills between 1999 and 2010, and Kinder Morgan having a similar record, any obvious safety improvements should be in the plan before the projects are seriously considered.

Hiking Trail dedication Connecting the country by trails National Hiking Trail directors were in Quesnel for HIKE BC’s 12th annual general meeting held July 15. HIKE BC is a member of the Outdoor Recreational Council of B.C. The National Hiking Trail system is a series of existing trails and older roads, recreational, historic, mining and native routes, that cross British Columbia East to West and will soon connect to the Southern Mainland. Approval is still being negotiated regarding use of old trails through Jasper National Park to connect trails that will take one to the start of the Goat River Trail just north of McBride. This trail will follow a route to Barkerville where it joins the 1861 Goldrush Pack

Trail leading to the Keithley and Likley area. From here the trail will follow the Quesnel River downstream to Quesnel and will connect with the Quesnel Walking Trails to access the Telegraph Trail to the Blackwater River (West Road.) From here the trail will be using the Nuxall-Carrier Grease (Alexander MacKenzie) Trail to the coast. Much of the Lower Mainland has many connecting trails leading from the U.S. border through the districts and cities leading into Whistler. There are plans in the works to extend from the Whistler - Pemberton area through the Western Chilcotin region to join the trail near Tweedsmuir Park.

Falcon resigns from Liberal cabinet TOM FLETCHER Black Press Premier Christy Clark is planning a pre-election cabinet shuffle as early as next week to replace Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon and other ministers who are likely to leave. Falcon announced Wednesday he has stepped down as finance minister and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run in the 2013 election because his wife is expecting a second child at around the same time as the next B.C. budget is due. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Putting aside the timing associated with the newest addition to our family in February, I genuinely believe the premier requires a finance minister who will prepare a budget and make taxation and spending measures that he or she will be prepared to defend in the upcoming election campaign.â&#x20AC;? Clark appointed Attorney General Shirley Bond as acting finance minister, but said it is a short-term arrangement and a new cabinet lineup will be announced â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the coming daysâ&#x20AC;? to prepare for the May, 2013 election. The second-place finisher in the 2011 B.C. Liberal Party leadership race, Falcon was appointed finance minister and deputy premier by Clark. He has overseen the windup of the harmonized sales tax, which battered the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity and pushed Gordon Campbell out of the premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office.

Falconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current budget projects that the province will balance the books again after a string of deficits that was extended to this year by the repayment of a $1.6 billion transition fund from Ottawa for adopting the HST. After being rejected in a province-wide referendum, the tax comes to an end next spring, just as the province is preparing for a scheduled election in May of 2013. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston questioned whether Falconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promised balanced budget can be delivered. Natural gas revenues have fallen with the price of gas this year and Falconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned sale of government assets may not come in time to generate the needed cash, Ralston said. Education Minister George Abbott, another leadership contender, said Tuesday he will soon make an announcement about his political future as well. Energy Minister Rich Colemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future has also been the subject of speculation. In his resignation statement, Falcon praised Clark as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;great campaigner and communicator.â&#x20AC;? He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule out a return to politics at some point. Falcon was first elected MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale in the B.C. Liberal sweep of 2001. His first cabinet post was minister of state for deregulation and he served as minister of health and transportation before moving to finance in March 2011.

QAEA preparing for 28th annual fall celebration Sept. 22 – 23 ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter

Q

uesnel Agriculture and Exhibition Association is busy preparing for this year’s Fall Fair, Sept. 22 – 23 at Alex Fraser Park and promises it will be an event to remember. “This year we’ve partnered with the barrel racers for a truly diversified Fall Fair,” QAEA president Judy Easy said. “We’re still offering all the traditional elements but with an exciting, dynamic barrel racing component.” One of the fair’s highlights has always been the arts and agriculture division where local gardeners and crafters present their finest products for competition. Returning to the Arts and Rec Centre’s West Fraser Timber Room, the public is invited to browse through the division and view the exceptional efforts on offer. Baking, needlework, canning, vegetables, flowers, photography, crafts, children’s work and much more will be on display. Walking from the fair grounds to the West Fraser Timber Room, the public is invited to enjoy the Vendor Walk where food, displays, kids play area and areas to sit and relax are available. “We’re planning on arranging several areas around the park where people can stop, take a rest and enjoy the sights and sounds of the fair at their leisure,” Easy said. The Agriplex will also be a hive of activities. And yes, that includes a beekeepers display as well as horse and carriages, farm animals and several other displays. And what fair would be complete without a stroll through the Fur and Feather barns where all manner of critters and birds will be judged and displayed – always a family favourite. With demonstrations galore and a smattering of wonderous gizmos from the Antique Machinery Park, the 2012 Fall Fair promises two days of family fun. Interested in entering your prize-winning produce or perusing the schedule of events? The Fall Fair prize book is now on the shelves at the North Cariboo Growers Co-op, Quesnel Ag Parts, Bouchie Lake Farm and Feed and Triple L Trophies on St. Laurent Avenue. For information on this year’s Fall Fair call Lisa, 250-992-9317 or Judy, 250-747-4315.

Fur and Feather, a Fall Fair highlight Quesnel Fur and Feather Association has been promoting the appreciation of breeding and showing of birds and small fur-bearing animals for decades and will, once again, fill the dedicated fur and feather barns at Alex Fraser Park with all manner of creatures during the Quesnel Fall Fair, Sept. 22 – 23. QFFA president Thomas Christien is looking forward to the show and invites the public to wander through the buildings and admire the exceptional entries on display. “I have a passion for poultry and rabbits,” he said. “This is a great club to share those interests with.” With prize books at various locations around town, the public can enter their prize-winning poultry including ducks, geese, pigeons, turkeys, game birds and all types of chickens, or fabulous furry creatures including rabbits and cavies. “Memberships, at just $12/year for a family, will be available and I encourage individuals or families interested in exploring this rewarding hobby to consider joining,” Thomas said. “However, membership is not a requirement to enter this show, so reg-

ister your poultry or animals; its a fun experience.” QFFA has been celebrating fur and feather excellence and educating the public for decades. A walk through the barns is an education in itself. Also included in the Fall Fair prize book is the QFFA colouring contest. Mail your entry to Linda Leary, 3964 Bulova Rd., Quesnel, B.C. V2J 6V2. “Visit the Fur and Feather barns to see if you’ve won a prize,” Thomas said with a smile. The prize book also lists a complete set of rules and entry forms covering all classes of entries. Thomas and the Quesnel Fur and Feather Association are considering several options in the future. “The club is interested in possibly organizing a regional rabbit show,” Thomas said. “There are no American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) shows north of Kamloops and breeders in several northern communities have expressed a lot of interest.” For information on the QFFA or details of the upcoming show and competition contact Thomas, 250-992-8461.

SQBA presents 2nd Annual Outdoor Movie Night ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter Remember the thrill of dressing up in your pyjamas, climbing into the car with your family and going to the drive-in theatre? South Quesnel Business Association is recreating that family fun with its Second Annual Outdoor Movie Night Sept. 14 at the Kart track, behind the oval track at Cariboo Raceway Park. “We’re holding the movie night at the Kart Track to promote the park,” SQBA president Rob Moutray said. “Its a great venue for such an event.” The Lower Mainland company, Fresh Air Cinema, provides the mechanics and the large inflatable screen which offers an excellent viewing experience from anywhere on the kart track. Outdoor Movie Night is also a fundraiser for local charities and this year all donations go to Jamie Loeppky, a young woman who is adjusting to life after her leg was amputated due to an accident in Mexico. “We heard about Jamie’s ordeal and how it had such a negative financial

impact on her family, so the association decided she would be a good local person to raise money for at this year’s outdoor movie night,” Moutray said. He went on to say people can bring lawn chairs, blankets, flashlights, umbrellas (just in case), snacks and any other creature comforts to make the night special. “People are encouraged to arrive early (gates open at 6:30 p.m.), bring a picnic dinner if they like, or a frisbee and enjoy the kart park,” Moutray said. “Kart volunteers will have the grounds

groomed within an inch of its life and the great location lends itself well to family activities.” The movie begins as soon as its dark enough (Moutray estimated around 8 p.m.) and there will be a concession on site for those wishing to truly experience the drive-in atmosphere. The audience can choose their spot to set up on the kart track with the oversized screen – at least 20 feet tall – in an ideal viewing location facing the track. This year, the movie playing is The Pirates - Band of Misfits,

an animated family movie with tons of laughs. SQBA is asking for a minimum donation of $2 a person, however all donations are gratefully accepted and will be passed on to Jamie Loeppky. There are no tickets to purchase, just show up at the gate. Each person will receive a bracelet and are free to go anywhere on the track. If last year is any indication, the little bit of rain didn’t phase the crowd,

everyone had a great time. Watch for directional signs either up Racing Road or Westland Road. “There’s no end of possibilities for the Cariboo Raceway Park,” Moutray said. “Concerts, festivals, any kind of public performance would suit that park, in addition to the great track sports.” So pack up the kids, snacks and chairs and enjoy the Outdoor Movie Night Sept. 14.

LIFESTYLES

Take a seat in the director’s chair The Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) is producing the definitive movie for Canada and Canadians across the country are being offered a seat in the director’s chair. CTC is reaching out to each and every Canadian and asking them to show off the best of their country to the world. Local towns and cities, like Quesnel, deserve a chance to star in this Great Canadian production. The fabric of Canada extends well beyond its major cities and Quesnel residents are being given a chance to demonstrate just what their Canada has to offer. What do residents love most about Quesnel? What would they brag about? How would they convince international travellers to visit Quesnel? Many great directors were born in Canada, including: James Cameron, David Cronenberg and Paul Haggis. Now, with this project, every Canadian has a chance to help direct the ultimate film about Canada. All they have to do is share their best videos or photos – it could be anything from a favourite diner to a sporting event – via www.35milliondirectors.com. Their content could be showcased among the work of some of Canada’s leading filmmakers and artists who are participating, including: Matt Wiebe, Guillaume Blanchet, Michal Ericsson and Douglas Coupland – the writer of such iconic novels as Generation X and Microserfs. Coupland has already submitted his video, which you can view at the website. In addition, the CTC is offering prizes for submissions, including a dream Canadian travel trip. All contributors whose footage or photos are chosen to appear in the final twominute video will receive a GoPro HD camera package.

Trip of a life time:

Playing Our Game in Europe Above: Cheyann ready to beat the Italian goalie on her back hand a game which they won 2-1. Below; sitting with new friends after our game against them (Scandinavia Elite) which we won 4-2, from left Cheyann Newman, Erika, Janika, Elviira, Katariina the last four from Finland. Lorrie Newman

Cheyann Newman was invited to be part of Team Western Canada, which competed against a worldwide array of teams in Bolzano, Italy. Below is her story in her own words. urope was so much fun, but the two weeks went by too quickly! We started off with team photos at the Calgary airport, transferred at Amsterdam onto Milan then bussed to Innsbruck, Austria where we arrived at our hotel 18 hours later. We were tired because they are nine hours ahead of us and we were too excited to sleep on the plane. Every day we had a busy schedule: up by 6:30 a.m. with full days and a curfew at 11:00 p.m. Our schedule: Innsbruck, Austria for three days, but the second day we bussed to Vipiteno, Italy for rafting and shopping, then off to Italy for the rest of the trip: Val Gardena bus tour of the Dolomites one day, Bolzano and Egna for the six day hockey tournament and shopping, Verona and Venice for one day each for shopping and tours, Milan for two days, then back to

E

Canada. There was so much to do in Austria and Italy: touring, walking and shopping, playing hockey, fun activities and meeting new people. Our team and parents filled five rafts when we went rafting and most people, including myself, got thrown out of the raft at least once, even one instructor got tossed from his raft. The river was so cold, even with the wetsuits most of us had a hard time catching our breath when we went into the river. Rafting was the best team event; we all wanted to go again. We went to the zoo in Austria (Alpenzoo), toured many castles, practiced at the Innsbruck Olympic Centre, did shopping and lots of walking. In Austria, a few of us went on three different cable cars to reach the highest point of the mountain called Hafelekar, 2256m high. It was windy and cold at the top, which was nice

because it was over +35 degrees celsius at the bottom. The team took a bus tour through the Dolomiti Mountains. The view was incredible if you could handle looking down the edge of a cliff. With all the hair pin turns, most places only one vehicle could go at a time, so vehicles had to back up until there

was a place big enough to squeeze past. Our bus rubbed against another bus and also ended up hitting a cement guard rail. Riding in the gondola in Venice was very exciting. It was very busy; an experience I won’t forget. Even the taxi boat to get to the shopping was fun. There were lots of souvenirs and places to explore.

By the time we were in Bolzona I was so ready for hockey. I wasn’t even jet lagged. I wasn’t nervous, just excited and the practices just made me want to play even more. Some of the girls talked about not feeling well, some had jet lag and some said they had problems getting their legs going. I was lucky; I felt great. I felt even better when the coach gave us our jerseys and I was assistant captain. I was surprised, for I was one of the only girls the coach didn’t know until our practices in Edmonton. When he gave me my jersey he said, “You deserve it, play hard and enjoy this experience.” That is exactly what I did. Standing at centre ice listening to our anthem and then scoring my first goal were two of the most memorable points. Hockey was great in Bolzano. There were seven teams: U.S.A., two other teams which were mostly from the U.S.A. with a few Canadians,

Scandinavia (Finland and Sweden), Italy and my team Canada West NAHA Panthers. My favorite hockey team to play against was my friend Janika’s team called, “Scandinavia Elite,” which was a team that was made up of Finnish and Swedish players. At the end of the tournament we ended up with four wins and two losses. We did not make the semi-finals, despite beating the second and third place teams who only had three wins, while we had four wins. They ended up in semis and we didn’t because of tournament rules, which no one understood. The ice rinks were huge and the ice was soft. Some teams had a lot of skilled individual players, but we played better as a team so we were able to beat them. They were very rough. Here they would have had interference and roughing penalties, but nothing was called there. The refs made hardly any calls during the games; even when punches were thrown between players or even for offsides. During our last game with Italy their bench cleared

and they began to fight the five of us on the ice, but after the game we traded clothes and they said they love Canada the best! What happens on the ice stays on the ice. Being able to watch and play against the other countries was a good experience. The games were hard, fast and good hockey. I wish we could have played more hockey and more countries. I had a lot of fun. Besides playing hockey in Italy, my two favorite parts of the trip were white river rafting and meeting my new friends from Finland and Sweden. I enjoyed every second being in Europe even the + 32 or higher weather all day every day. I was sad when I had to leave. I hope to go to Europe again because it was an amazing experience. Maybe I will be able to compete again at the World’s Selects. I want to thank all of my sponsors and family members to help make this happen, without you I would have never been able to do this. This, I hope, is just the start to a long and happy hockey future.

The Wolfpack prowls in Quesnel JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter The WolfPack prowled in Quesnel last week, teaching teamwork and how to forearm pass. Chad Grimm, an assistant coach with the TRU Men's volleyball team and erstwhile local, was in town to coach local students and help them grow in the sport they love. Grimm was happy to be back coaching in Quesnel. "I always like coming here cause the kids have a really good work ethic," said Grimm. This year however, the number of students who came to learn at the volleyball camp was drastically lower than usual, with 18 students, 11 grade nine to twelve students and seven grade five to eight students, coming out to take part. Most years, Grimm, who has been running the program in Quesnel for nine years, said anywhere from 30 to 40 athletes show up for the popular volleyball school.

This year however, volleyball, like many other school sports, has taken a bit of a hit. "Part of it is there's not as many local coaches anymore," Grimm said. Coaches who had been working within the school system had moved or stopped coaching, leaving some of the kids without teams he said. Besides that, the teachers job action may also have affected it, according to Grimm. "There wasn't as many teams because teachers weren't coaching as much," he said. Despite the lower numbers, the students who did show up had fun. Kassidy Flanagan, a student in the early sessions for younger students enjoyed her time at the camp. "I did it last year and I liked it. I told my friends to come so I had lots of friends to come with," she said. The camp focused on refining basic skills like passing and serving, so the athletes would have a firm base to grow their skills on. See PAGE A19

Aug. 19 - Aug. 24, 2012 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, balance and harmony will reign supreme this week. If there is something you have been meaning to change, now is the time to get it done. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Intentions can be lost when communication is not effective, Taurus. So don't expect someone to understand simply by your actions alone. Explain yourself along the way. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes you give off the impression that everything is going well, even when it is not. Hiding your emotions works sometimes, but this week find another strategy. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, most of the time you seem slow and steady. But every once in a while you show some passion that others may not expect from you. These sudden bursts are human. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you can't change the path the stars have set in your place even if you want to. It's best to simply accept the cards and make the most of them. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, speak up if you are not satisfied with your relationship. Now is the time to set things straight and make your voice heard. The other person will be receptive. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you are ready to change careers or travel for a change of pace. This could be the ideal time to make your move because there isn't anything pressing going on. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, your surroundings may try your patience this week. Rise above any potential confrontations, and you will come out looking and feeling better because of it. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You may be misunderstood all day, but that won't put a damper on your good mood, Sagittarius. Let others think what they want to think and simply carry on. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, a new person in your life will become a close friend for a long time. This person will have the qualities you need the most right now, and friendship will be easy. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 You're feeling like it's time to take matters into your own hands, Aquarius. Don't put off your happiness any longer. It's too important to push aside. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 This is the perfect time to address the questions that have been on your mind, Pisces. If you've been fretting over something, work it out.

Never too young to learn from A18 Grimm also included more difficult skills like jump serves in the curriculum for both the younger and older students. Though the younger kids were not able to put the jump serve together, Grimm said serving is one of the few volleyball techniques that can be practiced alone and the footwork required for a jump serve builds a foundation for spikes as well. "I think sometimes we limit kids," said Grimm. "If they know what they're doing they can practice and that will help them a lot." With the foundational skills in place, the students are positioned well to continue their training.

Nature’s Silence I sit and hear the silence Of sun and sky and trees. A calmness often broken By the birds; the bugs; the breeze. But still amid the clamour

Of bees and flies and squirrels Is silence - lovely silence As the sound about me swirls. Betty Beaven

Passing Through July I find myself alone again Just passing through July Stranded from solutions Drifting through hard times ~ The sorrow of my loneliness Has been a chore to hide As I watch lives fulfill Around the emptiness of mine ~ I'm a stranger to most people

Just passing through July And the odds seem stacked against me That my fate will be revised ~ Even though I've come of age Things have yet to turn out right The likelihood of finding love Looks doubtful in my life ~ Matt Merna

A Family Crest A Barry of six, black and gold, A Pale of crimson red--Shown upon these Arms, I'm told, Some drops of milk are shed:

The fight would wax and wane. Bold Edward stole the Stone of Scone For England to retain.

Like drops of human kindness, A nourishment of soul; The giver of all healthfulness, The filler of our bowl.

Near Fair Carlisle, they fought with Bruce. There, Edward met his end. His men fought on without a truce But Scotland would not bend.

Edward the First did thus bestow, To Peter Dodge and heir, These Arms to lift and show, To rightly have and bear;

Men still possess the age-old shield, Complete with shiny sword; Now never seen on battle field Defending King and Lord.

For faithful service to the Crown Against unnumbered foe; For standing firm, when hope was down, Against the sword and bow.

Today it hangs in full display Upon the owner's wall. Through all the years, to present day, It speaks of rise and fall.

In the Crusade, that bloody fray, They fought with zealous pride. Many fanatics did they slay But failed to turn the tide.

It brings a message from the past--Be strong, be brave, be free. As long as these Arms shall so last, They speak to you and me. Dwight Dodge

They battled with the Scottish Throne,

Weeping Angel The melody of our wind chime Has lost its gentle pace Wavering through my ears In such a ghostly way ~ Suspended from its chains Our porch swing starts to sway Capturing my attention As it imitates your grace ~ The paints begun to peel On our shutters and our frames I’ve boarded up the window Where I once saw your face ~ The sun is barely shining By the tree where we would lay But I still see the arrow Through the heart above our names ~ The grass has grown to cover

All the garden stones we laid Around our weeping angel Who kneels down to pray ~ The flower beds draw likeness To the day my life would change Awakening all my sorrows With the scent of yesterday ~ Our fountain’s overflowing With the times I can’t retain Running down the limestone Where your ashes still remain ~ Our angel still is weeping Still frozen with her faith As I sit alone and listen Beneath our trellis in the rain

~ Matt Merna

The Farmer’s Market It’s Saturday morning In downtown Quesnel. Farmers Market’s abuzz With produce to sell. From May to October Vendors set up their stall With produce and flowers, Crafts, baking et al. While tents are erected For hot sun or rain From all directions

One hears this refrain, “Where is Paul?” they ask But he’s there at hand Getting things in order A manager’s in demand. I love the atmosphere Even in inclement weather Because the Farmer’s Markets A chance to get together. Ruth Scoullar

The Pipeline - a Parody It’s a path to perplexity. It is thousands of risks to streams and soil. It is a threat to ecosystems, and to rare and common species. It is world record safety violations. It is a path to low environmental conscience. A pipeline, with the oil tankers, will

increase danger to the ocean and ocean life. It will trigger global dilemmas. It will spawn local opposition. It is more than a pipeline. It is a pathway to future disaster. Betty Helsdon Edwards

It’s my Favourite Season My favourite season has finally bloomed, Winter is finally over, the season that leaves me gloomed. Spring has also passed, and has brought out my favourite season, Summer it is, and has come for a reason. Most people think “the grass is greener” or other people think not, Lilacs grow in a particular farm in the country I thought. The gardens begin their 24/7 job, Little dogs kill mice so from us they cannot rob. Animals grow up and get ready for their own life, Farmers cut grass with their big ol’ scythe. My favourite season has finally bloomed,

Winter is finally over, the season that leaves me gloomed. The season is perfect for riding horses with shining hair, Bears are out, and protect their young with care. Dandelions sprout on the grassy fields The farmer plants seeds, for a heavy yield. My favourite season has finally bloomed,Winter is finally over, the season that leaves me gloomed. My favourite season has finally bloomed. Winter is finally over, the season that leaves me gloomed. Welcome summer! Ryder Anderson, age 11

My Shadow and Me I go out walking, my shadow and me, He struts along, as proud as can be. Sometimes he’s short, and sometimes quite tall, There’s time that he’s huge, and times that he’s small. He follows real close, like a wagon and horse, He marches along, but won’t talk of course. Mum is his nature, he won’t say a word, This silly old shadow is completely absurd. You must be alert, as you march out in glory, When there’s no shadow, it becomes quite a story. If you can’t see the sun, you walk all alone, Humming a song in a tune of your

own. Once you come in, for that much needed rest, Your shadow stays out, he’s no longer your guest. But once you go out, he’s waiting for you, To jaunt in the sun, so he can tag along too. It all seems so nice, just being around, Watching our shadow dance on the ground. For later that day, there’s no time to play, So my shadow is hidden and gone on it’s way. Elaine Couldwell
