Local cowgirl Rachel Chatman is presented with the buckle for Peewee Goat Tail Tying by Rodeo Queen Tyanna Dixon

Bella Coola rodeo spurs excitement BY CHRISTINA BOUCHER It may have been cold and rainy this past Canada Day weekend, but the spirits of rodeo-goers were not dampened. A strong attendance at the three-day event revealed that the love for riding, roping, and racing can’t be shaken by a few raindrops. Several improvements have been made to the rodeo grounds infrastructure in the past year.

Routine upgrades included the replacement of aging wooden bullpens with new steel pens. New footings and porches were installed on the concession building in response to last fall’s flooding. Nearly all buildings had received a good scrubbing to remove the silt deposited from the flood as well. Increased prize money this year contributed to the success of the event, and to bull riding in

particular. Thanks to local businesses that stepped up with additional sponsorship dollars! Initially, registration was down by 30 contestants, but 10 more were gained after adding increased funds to the prizes. The two head option on saddle bronc and bareback bronc also helped to increase registration. This new twist gives the cowboy two chances to win, and most likely doubled the number of bronc rid-

ers signed up. However, the audience enjoyed seeing local guys and gals in the ring, such as Pee Wee Goat Tail Tying Buckle winner Rachel Chatham and returning Rodeo Queen Tyanna Dixon. Several local men also impressed fans on the Gentleman’s Cow Ride: Chris Knudsen, David Enderud, Erik Granander, and John Sissons, to name a few. Just as local talent was repre-

sented in center stage, so was it represented behind the scenes. Countless volunteers helped out in many ways, from providing resources for the livestock and building maintenance in the past year, to selling tickets and cooking up the delicious rodeo burgers on the weekend itself. Thank you to all the volunteers – without you, the event would not be what it is: getting better and better every year!

CCRD lobbies Victoria to change diking policy BY KEVIN O’NEILL The regular monthly meeting of the Central Coast Regional District was held on June 9. After reviewing Emergency Program Coordinator Steve Waugh’s monthly report, emergency matters again dominated our meeting. The CCRD will join with a growing number of regional districts in a concerted effort to lobby the province to take responsibility for repairs and maintenance to its network of dikes. The directors believe that effective and affordable flood protection can only be achieved when Victoria reverses its policy of declaring these structures “orphaned”. The CCRD will also attempt to put forward a resolution to this effect before the upcoming convention of the Union of BC Municipalities. Also, with requests and inquiries from concerned residents from all areas of the valley coming to the directors,

the board will renew the Emergency Executive Committee to work with emergency planning staff in the interest of prioritizing these public concerns. The committee will also consider how to best utilize those funds recently received from Emergency Management BC. Continuing concerns over proposed ferry fare increases resulted in the board’s decision to invite representatives of the BC Ferry Commission to visit both Bella Coola and affected outer coast communities. Additionally, the CCRD will be part of a group of other local governments who will meet on this issue with Minister Blair Lekstrom on July 19. Martin Antoniuk joined the meeting to provide an update regarding our library. Specifically, Martin read a letter from Vancouver Island Regional Library executive director Rosemary Bonanno which highlighted progress in VIRL’s attempts to locate new premises to house our library. Stay tuned… The directors noted with appreciation the efforts to

repair flood damage(s) to Centennial Pool. It is our expectation that the pool will be fully operational for this summer season…hallellujah! The CCRD will undertake an extensive updating of its funding agreement with the Nuxalk Nation involving the Nation’s direct contribution to the operation, maintenance and capital development costs of the Thorsen Creek Waste and Recycling Center. This update will ensure a more equitable division of these costs. Finally, the directors received the welcome news that the purchase of the building currently housing the CCRD office has now been successfully completed. As funding for this acquisition was secured from the Community Works Fund, taxpayers have not been burdened with any borrowing costs. Future renovations under consideration may include the establishment of a fully equipped Emergency Operations Center.

Come spend the day in Tweedsmuir Park BY JOAN SAWICKI Come spend a day in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. That’s the invitation BC Parks is extending to the whole community on Saturday, July 16th. Each year, the third weekend of July is designated ‘BC Parks Day’. It is a day set aside by the province to celebrate the tremendous contribution our system of 989 parks, conservancies and protected areas make

to the ecological health of our province and to our personal lives. On this day, many communities across BC traditionally hold educational and fun events in their local provincial parks. This is the first year BC Parks is organizing an event in Tweedsmuir Park South. This year also marks the 100th anniversary of our provincial parks system. With the establishment of Strathcona

Bella Coola General Hospital

Provincial Park in 1911, BC became the first western province to establish provincial parks. Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, named for the 15th Governor General of Canada, John Buchan, Baron Tweedsmuir of Elsfield, was not far behind. This year we are celebrating its 73rd birthday! Saturday’s community day in the Park event will be held at Fisheries Pool campsite from 11 am to 3 pm. There will be guided nature walks along the Esker trail,

contest and prizes and special kids activities. There will be various interpretive displays, including maps celebrating some of the 54 other parks, conservancies and protected areas within our Bella Coola/Mid-Coast parks regions, information on the Belarko Bear Viewing Station (which will again be open this year) and DFO displays on fish and fish habitat. BC Parks’ mascot, “Jerry the Moose” will also be in attendance. Introduced in 1976 for the 75th anniver-

sary of BC Parks, Jerry is always a big draw for kids, young and old. Jerry will be at Fisheries Pool from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. There will be food and refreshments available from 11 am to 2 pm. You won’t want to miss Jerry the Moose help cut the Tweedsmuir Park birthday cake at 1 pm. After enjoying the food, activities and displays, we hope everyone will continue to explore the Park on their own for the rest of the day. While some areas like the

full Loop Trail and the Tote Road are not accessible right now due to last year’s flooding, there is still lots to do and see in the Park. Self-guided maps will be available for Kettle Pond Trail, Tweedsmuir Trail, and east portion of the Loop Trail to the lookout. We are very fortunate to have a provincial park of such beauty and diversity on our doorstep. Not only is it rich habitat for salmon, bears and a host of other plant and animal species, but it provides

wonderful public recreational opportunities close to home. The Park also contributes significantly to our local economy, attracting tourists from all over the world. So, come on out on Saturday, July 16. Spend a day in Tweedsmuir Park and enjoy the festivities that have been planned. If you want further information or would like to volunteer to help on that day, please contact Park Ranger Bree Matthewman at 250982-2701.

Community discusses the reduction of human-bear conflict BY CHRISTINA BOUCHER Community members gathered at Lobelco Hall on June 26 to discuss the realities of human-bear conflicts in the Bella Coola Valley. The discussion focused on polling public opinion on the formation of a Bella Coola Bear Working Group, which would work to assist the community in reducing humanbear conflict. Provincial, regional, and local presenters put forth a variety of perspectives on proactive methods to reduce these conflicts. Human-bear conflicts are defined as any damage caused by a bear, ranging from property damage to loss of human life. The outcome of these conflicts often includes bear mortality. BC Ministry of Environment Large Carnivore Specialist Tony Hamilton opened up the evening’s discussion. “The provincial view of human-bear conflicts is largely driven by the objective to reduce bear mortalities, as well as to keep people safe and to reduce property damage,” noted Hamilton. “More bears have been killed in Bella Coola than the population can sustain,” he explained. The community members present had several questions about the details of these numbers, and the Ministry has committed to look into the production of more detailed statistics of bear mortality in the region. Primarily, humanbear conflicts arise when bears have become human habituated or food conditioned. One audience member expressed concern that the bear-viewing stations at Atnarko may be contributing to human habituation of bears. Hamilton clarified that the human activity occurring at the Atnarko station is unlikely to increase human habituated bears due to the con-

trolled environment at the station. Bears have a greater likelihood of becoming food conditioned if natural food supplies decline and unnatural food supplies increase. Thus, if salmon runs and berry production decline in the valley, bears will have limited access to these natural food stores. Additionally, if unnatural food sources such as garbage, livestock, fruit trees, recycling cans and bottles, or even motor oil become available, bears will seek out these sources, thereby causing conflict with humans. BC Conservation Officer (CO) Andrew Milne provided the results of last year’s bear attractant audit of the Bella Coola Valley by the Williams Lake Conservation Office. In such an audit, the CO reviews a property for natural and non-natural food sources. The residential compliance rate with safe practices was 82 percent of 57 private residences reviewed. Compliance for commercial properties was substantially lower at 31 percent of 16 properties reviewed. The main reasons for noncompliance included insecure garbage containers. Regional COs will be in Bella Coola for ten days out of every month to respond to complaints regarding property damage or attacks, for attractant audits, or for special events such as com-

munity meetings. During these times, the CO will be able to respond immediately to phone calls; however, outside of these times, a local representative such as an RCMP member will be sent to deal with urgent complaints. Local perspectives on reducing human-bear conflict in the Valley were provided by Bella Coola Valley Bear Aware Community Coordinator Ellie Archer. Archer acknowledged the strong foundation provided by previous Coordinator Tim Degrace. She noted that her main objective in her new role is to assist community members in managing bear attractants in order to reduce the likelihood of conflict. “Bears roaming around on people’s properties are a potential safety issue,” said Archer. “It is better that they do not come there in the first place. The Bear Aware program is about education and helping people to manage bear attractants.” One current project facilitated by Bear Aware is the Valley-wide bear hazard assessment. In this assessment, patterns of humanbear conflicts will be mapped using past records of calls to the Conservation Office. This information will be used to identify and prioritize areas of focus for conflict reduction. Results of the assessment will be presented to the community, and feedback

will be solicited on the best solutions for minimizing humanbear conflict in these areas. The next Bella Coola Bear Working Group community meeting is tentatively scheduled for early August 2011. The Bear Aware program also exists to provide services to individual community members. Archer can be contacted to perform bear attractant assessments, wherein attractants are identified and a workplan is offered to the site owner for securing identified attractants.

Archer also facilitates teams of volunteers who assist with the installation of electric fencing or fruit tree gleaning for homeowners. She also encourages community members to approach her with any questions or concerns about bearrelated issues at 250982-2274. Residents should contact the Conservation Office RAPP line regarding human-bear conflicts or immediate safety issues at 1-877-9527277. The evening’s discussion was

chaired by Bella Coola Bear Working Group Volunteer Co-facilitator Steven Hodgson. Hodgson founded the Bear Working Group initiative in 2008, which has culminated in the establishment

of a group committed to work with the community to reduce human-bear conflict and increase safety overall. Moving forward, Hodgson and Archer will co-facilitate the Bear Working Group.

Health Care Hero Awards presented to BCGH staff members BY CHRISTINE HYDE Two of Bella Coola General Hospital’s employees were recognized at the Health Employer Association of B.C.’s Excellence in Health Care Awards at their Annual General Meeting in Vancouver 20 June 2011. “This doesn’t happen every day,” said Bella Coola General Hospital COO Michel Bazille, “and we are proud to be part of an organization where everyone does such a great job. It is very special to have two of our staff members recognized for their roles in healthcare. Please join us in recognizing the achievements of Carole Clark and Glenda Phillips.” When Carole Clark came to Bella Coola, she saw the need for extra effort to ensure that people in this remote community had access to mental health services. She collaborated with other agencies and service providers to devise ways of getting mental health and addictions clients, family and friends together with caregivers and professionals. One successful example is The Supper

Club, which has been running since 1998. This weekly event brings together a diverse group of people to enjoy a good meal and good company. Carole and other service providers also sought ways to make sure Bella Coola youths knew where to get support. They started “Dysfunctional Pizza”, a weekly event at the high school that provides students with a safe, welcome place to be. Thirteen years later, “Dysfunctional Pizza” is attended each week by a group of about 50 students who are grateful for the food and opportunity to connect with others and feel part of their community. Carole was also instrumental in starting video conferencing assessment, therapy and consultation with psychologists and a psychiatrist from outside the area resulting in hundreds of people receiving direct services that they would have otherwise never received. Glenda Phillips has been tireless in finding ways for seniors to get the support and care they need with limited resources. Without long-term care facili-

ties, the only option for seniors is to come to Bella Coola General Hospital. Glenda developed a partnership with Health Canada and the Nuxalk Nation to provide the community’s first integrated home and community care program, seven days a week. She consulted with community members, elders, chief and council, and the RCMP to help design a program that would work both on and off the reserve to meet the needs of seniors in a very isolated community with high health needs. Glenda leads a team who go out into the community to help those who remain at home and she is a strong link with the Nuxalk Nation’s Health and Wellness Program. Glenda is always looking for new ways to connect with seniors and to provide services with clients. For example, when the seniors group meets for lunch at the local church hall, she will drop by to talk to people and take a quick blood pressure check. Glenda has been invited to share her program success with Vancouver Coastal Health Home and

Community Care. Health Canada has asked her to participate in the National Home Care Nursing Summit and in March of this year, she presented at the First Nations Nursing Conference. HEABC created the Excellence in BC Health Care awards in 2007 to celebrate successes and thank those who are often too busy to stop and appreciate their accomplishments. These awards recognize the efforts of health care employees who provide quality care and support to the people of this province and acknowledge excellence and innovation in publicly funded health care. Award nominees are judged by a committee of volunteers from the health field as well as community leaders from business, science and technology and academia, and are given out in the following categories: Top Innovation, Affiliate and Health Authority; Workplace Health Innovation; Collaborative Solutions; Individual Health Care Hero Awards to an Affiliate and from within each Health Authority.

Glenda Phillips – Manager, Home & Community Care. 2011 Gold Apple Winner - Affiliate & Provincial Health Care Hero

Carole Clark – Programs Manager, Mental Health Services. 2011 Gold Apple Winner - Affiliate

I WILL MARK MY BALLOT ‘YES’ TO SAY ‘NO’ TO THE HST As your MLA and a member of the Official Opposition, I want you to know exactly why I will vote ‘YES’ to scrap the Liberal government’s HST • The HST is a massive shift of the tax burden from large corporations onto the backs of average families and small businesses. • The deceptions of the HST cannot conceal the fact many things that had zero provincial tax are now taxed at 7% more. Items such as travel, haircuts, restaurant meals, sports fees, school supplies, safety equipment and household repairs, including making your home energy efficient or fixing a leaky roof. • Not only will ordinary families pay more with the HST, but it will mean more cuts to vital public services including health care, education, seniors care and other social programs. My ‘YES’ vote to scrap the HST is a vote for more fairness. More support for ordinary families and small business. More protection for health care and education. A vote for accountability.

Acwsalcta School celebrates 11th Children’s Potlatch

Acwsalcta School students display masks at the 11th Children’s Potlatch in May, 2011. BY DAVID DOWLING At the end of May, Acwsalcta School put on its eleventh 'play' potlatch, a school tradition of educating younger students into the ways and meanings of the Nuxalk potlatch ceremony. As this year's organizers Alvin Mack and Dana Drugan observed early on in the lengthy preparations, "This is no longer a 'play' potlatch - it's the real thing." About one hundred visitors came, from as far away as Chase, Anahim Lake, Oweekeno and Redstone, to share their dances; there was even a small troupe from Samoa! Throughout the day-long festivities, presentations and acknowledgements were made to many people, from Nuxalk Elders to the builders of the school's new gymnasium and classrooms. A highlight of the evening program was the presentation to the school of a fine eagle mask carved by school graduate and promising young artist, Latham Mack. Latham then danced the first eagle dance in his beautiful mask,

before announcing that it would be flying south to Vancouver with him in the morning, to take up residence on display at YVR for a year! M.C. Clyde Tallio, who teaches Nuxalk language at the school, discussed the history and meaning of each event and dance, and celebrated the fact that several songs and dances were being re-introduced into the community after many years of non-performance or seclusion in archives. "It's all part of reawakening the language and the culture that the language brings with it, especially for our young people," he said. The school plans to make Nuxalk language an integral part of its curriculum in the coming years. The day's celebrations took place in the magnificent new gymnasium, built with Action Canada funding as a state of the art facility, with eco-friendly lighting and heat. The programme ended with school staff distributing a whole warehouse full of useful giveaways to the satisfied and grateful guests.

and Ernest Hall was awarded the honor of the Arts Council’s annual purchase for his beautiful sculpture, “Playmates”. He and his wife, Jill, are both very talented artists and will soon be opening a pottery studio at their residence, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for their opening. Many pieces will

remain in the Art House for the rest of the year, and new work is being brought in all the time. Come in for a visit and a coffee, while enjoying the work by this Valley’s incredible artists. You may even have a chance to watch an artist at work, as local girl Tahirih Goffic is running the Art House

IN MEMORY OF Malcolm Bruce Mackenzie September 18, 1965 - June 14, 2011 Our family would like to thank the community for all the support we have received since the passing of Malcolm. The reaching out and words of friendship have been incredible. Your cards, flowers, treats, and remembrances are all very appreciated. Malcolm was not only a loving husband and extremely doting father, but just a terrific warm person. Malcolm, we miss you and love you ‘infinity.’

Cindy & Ariel, Hugh & Helen, Graham & Erin

Ernest Hall was awarded the honor of the Arts Council’s annual purchase for his beautiful sculpture, ‘Playmates’ this year and will be using it as her working studio. If you’re an artist who needs a place to display your work, please don’t hesitate to bring it by and Art House staff will make sure to find room for it. From now until July 29, there is a display by a variety of

artists from around B.C. The Exhibition is called Artsfest, 2011, and is a yearly juried show put on by the Central Interior Regional Arts Council (CIRAC), so don’t forget to come by and see what the artists of the Central Interior are up to. See you there!
