Do homework: improve literacy to improve life

By Mel Newcombe September is Life Literacy Month in Canada and Sept. 8 is International Literacy Day. The United Nations theme this year is “Literacy and Peace.” This theme was adopted to show how higher literacy skills and values bring everyone together. Literacy gives us the skills we need to understand the world around us and participate in our communities. Let’s all celebrate literacy this September. Literacy is one of the most important life skills we all use everyday. So what is literacy? Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy Society (CCPL) defines literacy “as how people understand and use information. It is how they read, write and use numbers and communication technology, such as computers, phone, fax, e-mail and the Internet.” So why should you improve your literacy skills? Increasing your literacy skills will help you retain your job and increase your employment goals by being prepared for the ever-changing job market. With higher literacy skills, you will be better able to take care of your family, money and have more opportunities. What is the difference for those who have low literacy skills? CCPL defines low literacy “as people not having the literacy skills they need to do these daily tasks. They have trouble with reading, writing and using numbers.” CCPL supports programs from babies to seniors throughout the Cariboo. Its programs include Partner Assisted Learning, Computer

Rowing club has it covered Arlene Jongbloets

prior to its arrival, safety equipment and oars were stored at his home at 108 Mile and would have to be transported down to the training site on Watson Lake four or five times each week for rowing sessions. “We had no secure place to leave it all there, so we trailered it back and forth – unloading and reloading — you get the picture.� Jenkins says the next club event is the North Shore High School Championship in mid-October where their junior rowers will compete.

All that remains of Jeff and Britany Embree’s Gateway home is charred rubble. The family lost everything and Tamara Giles is seeking public support to help her brother and niece get a new start.

Support needed Ken Alexander Free Press

Jeff and Britany Embree lost everything they owned when their home burned to the ground in the early morning hours of Sept. 2. Jeff’s sister, Tamara Giles, says her brother and niece were away from the home when the fire occurred, and their two cats and a dog managed to escape through the dog door. Giles adds the fire was discovered by a passer-by around 1:30 a.m. and called 9-1-1, which garnered a response by the 100 Mile House RCMP, the forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department and 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue. She notes the RCMP was first on the scene and she was told it’s believed the fire started in the kitchen area because that was the part of the building that was burning. She adds the building was completely destroyed and was informed it would be impossible to determine the cause. Jeff and the animals are staying at his parents’ home in the 108 and Britany, who

graduates from PSO this year, is staying with a friend. Giles says they have received clothing from area thrift stores, and businesses and members of the public have offered furniture and household goods. However, they could really use a place to store it, she adds. Meanwhile, Giles has set up a PayPal account (e-mail for anyone who would like to donate some money to the family, and says she is looking into starting a trust fund at one of the local financial institutions. For more information contact Giles at 250-459-2090.

Canim Lake hosts adventure race By Tish Diamond Twenty-nine participants competed in the 10th Annual Poker Face Adventure Race recently. Participants came from Williams Lake, Kamloops and there were a lot of local Canim Lake and 100 Mile House residents. We also had tons of volunteers from Canim Lake and 100 Mile House who helped make the race run smoothly. The race involved a 12-kilometre bike ride starting at Eliza Archie Memorial School, going through the main subdivision, up the mountain towards Bobbs Lake and ended with a thrilling descent back down towards the school. Then they continued on with a four-km paddle on Bridge Creek, which resulted with a few paddlers ending up in the water. The last leg of the race involved a gruelling eight-km run up the mountain and back down to the finish line. In the iron man division, Dennis Wick defended his title, once again for the 10th consecutive year, with a total time of 1:32:35. Steve Law was second with a time of 1:40:09, and Dustin Price took third place at 1:41:48. Not far behind was Dwayne Chamberlain at 1:47:01, and Adam Courtney finished in 2:03:09. Kristie Iverson was the soul iron woman completing all three components in a time of 2:25:35. Jack and Donna Fitzel (For Better or Worse) took first place in the team-of-two category with a time of 1:44:40. Second place went to Cam and Colleen Robb (Cariboo Eco Tours) at 2:06:43. Close on their tails were Brent Dixon and Marcia Gilbert (The Speedy Cousins) who finished in 2:11:03.

The team-of-threeor-four category was won by Shawn Melville, Kam Taylor and Margie Lobsiger (Focused Fitness) with a time of 1:47:28. Second place went to the Kamloops team of Harry Spahan, Jennifer Morrison and Lynn Morrison (Foot Loose) at 2:23:05. David Sumption, Beverly Sell, Brett Archie and Michelle Archie (Red Neck Nobels) were very close

behind in 2:25:50. This year, there was an eight-km walk/run race and it was very successful. Andrea Flett took first place with a time of 34:31. Kathryn Barrick was second at 41:50, followed closely by Ashley Watson at 41:54 and Claire Ford in 42 minutes flat. Heidi Hagan crossed the finish line in 48:42 and Tiffany Keating was one second behind her at 48:43.

Brenda says: “I love the variety of music, their community involvement and my free phone app is great!



You are in need of a boost to your selfesteem. You will feel better about yourself by taking care of some simple details, like buying a new outfit or experimenting with a new hairstyle.

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


Your exquisite taste will be at front and centre this week, especially as you think about redecorating your home. You’ll also discover a nice sum of money at the bottom of a pocket. Puzzle No. 630


You will be able to express yourself with distinction. You may also cause some jealousy by being the centre of attention. CANCER

With a bit of imagination you could quite easily generate another source of revenue for yourself. This will likely involve an enjoyable activity that requires a lot of creativity. LEO

There seems to be a lot of action on the horizon for you this week. If you have young children, there will probably be a few adjustments to make at home in order to keep the peace. VIRGO

This is a good week to recharge your batteries and meet some needs for relaxation. Try to visit your massage therapist or your esthetician to treat yourself.

You will be surrounded by people this week, so try and look your best as often as you can. Your elegance will enable you to widen your circle of friends. SCORPIO

You’re the type of person who tends to take on too much. Work on delegating this week, and you will see a reduction in stress. HOW TO PLAY:


Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box.

You might stumble onto a great vacation bargain, although you should perhaps wait a bit before asking your boss for time off. CAPRICORN

A new diet would be really good for you. You might be tempted to change the way you eat after some type of excess. Expect some really positive changes at work.

FOR ANSWER: See the Sept. 12th FREE PRESS


Puzzle No 366

Your love life will be a priority this week, and you will experience some happy moments with your loved one. If you’re single, you may meet your soul mate. PISCES

You might be the happy recipient of a generous salary increase at work. You will also think about developing a small home-based business that can grow into a resounding success.
