First Purple Day in Quesnel The historic footbridge was awash in purple March 26 in honour of Purple Day for Epilepsy. In an effort to bring awareness and education to people with epilepsy, Purple Day was designated because of the work of one nine-year-old girl in Nova Scotia. Now a nationally-recognized day in Canada, Purple Day is celebrated in more than 80 countries around the world. Annie Gallant photo

Integris steps up with $50K Multi-Centre commitment Integris Credit Union has thrown $50,000 worth of support at the Multi-Centre. Integris Credit Union and the North Cariboo Multi-Centre fundraising initiative are partnering on the development of the North Cariboo Nature Mural, an innovative and artistic feature that will help spur community and corporate sponsorships. This major art installation will be multidimensional and make use of a number of materials to showcase the nature

of the region, including recycled glass, wood, rock and other items. Individuals and businesses are invited to purchase an art piece component, which include river rocks at $25, $50 and $100, fish and wildlife from $500 to $7,500 and trees for $10,000. “Integris Credit Union is owned and managed by our people right here at home,” Quesnel Integris director Bruce Steele said. “Our investment in the North Cariboo

Multi-Centre represents yet another commitment to people in our community.” Steele said since Integris is a member-owned financial institution, it turns a large portion of its profit into investments designed to enhance communities. “I would like to thank the people who choose to do their banking, insurance and financial planning with Integris,” he said. “Your choice has direct impact – your choice makes Quesnel a better

place to live.” “We sincerely thank Integris Credit Union for their support of this exciting project,” CRD Vice-Chair Ted Armstrong said. “Their contribution is a testament to their commitment to the residents of the North Cariboo and making our region a great place to live, work and play.” “I am excited to see Quesnel’s corporate community continue to step up and take a leadership role in the fundraising initiative

to support the North Cariboo Multi-Centre,” Mayor Mary Sjostrom added. “Integris Credit Union is an outstanding corporate citizen. On behalf of council. I applaud them for their commitment to this project, an opportunity that allows everyone in the community to participate in being part of the new building.” With this contribution, Integris Credit Union will be acknowledged for naming the overall mural, and will have a gold pan

designation as part of the mural components – the only gold pan to be installed on the mural. The North Cariboo Multi-Centre will be a modern facility designed to replace the 62-year-old arena and aging theatre infrastructure. It will feature a 1,600 seat NHL-sized arena, a 450-seat performing arts theatre and accompanying event and assembly area. For more on the MultiCentre check out, www. ourmulticentre.com.

Asking for public’s help

Quesnel RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a missing male who may be in the Vancouver or Kootney area.
 38-year-old Corey Ball was reported missing by his family after he failed to attend a scheduled medical appointment March 23 in Quesnel. An investigation discovered Ball had purchased a Greyhound bus ticket to Vancouver the same morning of his medical appointment. Police and family are very concerned for his well being at this time.
 Ball has family in Greenwood (located between Midway and Grand Forks), therefore it is a possibility he may be in the Kootney Region. Ball is described as: • Caucasian male; • 5’ 11; • 180 - 190 lbs; • brown eyes; • brown curly hair worn in a

high ponytail or unkempt. He was last seen wearing a black hoody, long sleeved shirt, black pants and hiking boots. If anyone has any information, call Quesnel RCMP 250- 9929211.

eturning to Quesnel in December after an eight-month stay in Hong Kong with side trips to the Portuguese colony of Macau and Canton, Japan and Hawaii Mr. and Mrs. Willie Fun radiated health and happiness when they related highlights of their Oriental tour in an interview on Monday. Boarding the CPA jetliner in Vancouver April 14, 1962, they flew to Hong Kong via Alaska and Japan, and landed at Kowloon airport 17 hours after leaving Canada. The couple checked into the modern Luk-Quok Hotel in downtown Hong Kong. They stayed in the luxury hotel a week before moving to the Asia Hotel, where they lived for the remainder of their visit to the Crown Colony. After 50 years in Canada, Mr. Fun said he “didn’t know the place at all-it was all changed.” Mrs. Fun said that the nicest part of the whole trip was “the scenery from Kowloon overlooking the harbour toward Hong Kong. It was absolutely beautiful.” The first few weeks were spent in and a round of visiting Mr. Fun’s relatives; a daughter, nephew and old friends. “They were surprised and happy to see me again - as I was to see them,” he said. Mr. Fun is part owner of the Nugget Cafe on Barlow Avenue, which has

operated for 43 years. He said although he enjoyed his return to the orient after a half century in Canada, he was “glad to get back to Quesnel - there is no place like home.” Mr. Fun said he could not remember anything of the old city of Hong Kong. New buildings of 15 to 25 storeys high had mushroomed everywhere. Mrs. Fun, on the other hand, had never before been in the Orient in a sense it was a new adventure to both. The famous Happy Valley race track provided a real thrill for the couple and despite the heat temperatures ranged from 80 to 95 degrees - they went to track several times, but did not bet on the ponies. “I don’t understand their type of betting,” said Mr. Fun. “It was all different to the Canadian (pari-mutuel) system - I think it was the same as the “hooky” system in England.” Instead of betting Mr. and Mrs. Fun paid for comfortable seats in the shade where they could thoroughly enjoy the racing and scenery. The climate, said the restaurateur, was similar to Vancouver. “But not burning hot. It was milder there.” The rate of exchange between the Hong Kong dollar and the Canadian dollar is approximately $4.50 HK for $1 Canadian. And for a large room with bath at the Asia Hotel the couple paid $500 Hong Kong a month. “A meal with four or five courses would cost about $2 Canadian in Hong Kong,” said Mr. Fun. “The same meal in Canada would probably run close to $10.” Three motor vessels cross the bay from the

island colony to Macau three times daily, said Mr. Fun. The names of the ships are the Tak-Sing, Fat San and Tai Loy. Well equipped with modern facilities, including a firstclass dining room, the motor ships carry freight and passengers to the Portuguese port some 40 miles from Hong Kong. The Fun couple made the three-hour trip once and were impressed with the cleanliness of the exotic city and the courtesy of the Portuguese officials. “I liked Macau,” said Mr. Fun. “There weren’t as many people there as in Hong Kong…The air was fresher. The place seemed cleaner; probably because there is less industry in Macau then in Hong Kong. It was wonderful.” In another side trip they visited Canton on the Red China mainland and said it was altogether different than reports they had heard and read concerning Communist China. “The people seemed fat and happy.” said Mrs. Fun. “They looked healthier

than the people of Hong Kong. There seemed to be a lot of work going on - new factories - and as in Hong Kong, women did the manual work on the roads and in factories, the sort of work generally done by men in this country.” They learned that the Communist government was concentrating on industrial expansion, rather than housing developments and the production of consumer goods. “There is a lot more food available now,” said Mr. Fun. “It’s rationed, but they get enough.” Mr. Fun said he visited friends and they had told him that living conditions had been steadily improving since 1958. The Quesnel couple tried their sea legs on the return journey to Canada and sailed on the U.S. Dollar Line ship President Cleveland. During the 18day voyage, they stopped over in Kobe, Yokahama and Tokyo, Japan, where they spent 48 hours sightseeing in the three cities. From Japan they sailed to

Hawaii and spent a day in Honolulu, where Mr. Fun was welcomed by friends who placed three cars at his disposal for trips around the island state. Completing the last leg of their homeward trip they reached Vancouver a few days before Christmas and decided to spend the holiday with Mr. Fun’s son Jack and his children. They returned to Quesnel December 30, in order to spend New Year’s Day here. The Funs agreed it was a wonderful experience visiting the Orient but “it feels good to be home,” said Mr. Fun. “I wouldn’t want to live there any more.” Discussing the figures of women in China, Mr. Fun, with a twinkle in his eye, said that “they sure look good from behind; they are so slim, and the Chong-San dresses they wear make them look streamlined.” He advises Canadian women not to eat too much meat and starchy foods and to sleep on harder beds and sit on harder chairs as the Chinese women do.

Frankly, I’m glad someone who isn’t an “expert” in carbon trading schemes is examining, with a skeptical eye, this highly controversial and questionable activity. An “expert” in carbon offsets is someone who has already bought into the legitimacy of these schemes and, as such, is merely interested in whether the rules of this newest shell game are being followed. An “expert” would not ask the fundamental question that needs to be asked: are carbon offset projects a legitimate, credible way to address climate change? Experts already believe offsets are de facto legitimate. The experts that are currently validating carbon offset schemes, including BC’s, are the same type of companies that created the savings and loan and Enron scandals. They are also the same type of companies that validated and sanctioned financial derivatives; what we now refer to as the “toxic assets” that caused the financial meltdown in 2008. These experts also enjoy direct financial benefits from the promotion and promulgation of carbon offsets – they are an integral part of the so-called carbon offset industry. An industry that in reality involves trading carbon ownership certificates in a manner that enables private companies to obtain millions of dollars of public money that ought to have been spent in classrooms, hospitals and seniors care facilities. It’s also important to note that carbon offset trading schemes are being questioned beyond BC’s borders. The European police force has a carbon fraud team that at one time estimated some European carbon trading schemes were 90 per cent fraudulent. There are similar warnings about fraud in the fledgling Australian carbon market. The United Nations and reputable climatologists and carbon economists are also questioning the validity and efficacy of carbon offsets, and a recent study by the University of Victoria called one of the forest carbon offset projects examined by the Auditor General a “smoke and mirrors game.” Only a true outsider can answer questions about the fundamental legitimacy and credibility of the BC Liberals’ carbon offset scheme, and BC’s Auditor General is fully capable of giving us his unbiased and expert findings.

Local firefighter participates in humanitarian mission

A member of the Quesnel Volunteer Fire Department, A/ Lt. Bart Schneider, will be spending his spring vacation with a group of B.C. Firefighters providing enhanced training for South American firefighters, known as Bomberos. The Cuerpo General de Bomberos Voluntarios del Peru (CGBVP) is an allvolunteer National Fire Service serving more than 29 million citizens of Peru. There are approximately 10,000 male and female Bomberos from 196 fire stations protecting citizens and property of Peru. While the country moves forward with a booming economy, the Fire Service is also trying to modernize with their main emphasis being on improved training. Firefighters Without Borders Canada has developed an excellent working relationship with the Peru Fire Service with the delivery of this improved training while delivering two large donations of used firefighting equipment over the past two

years. These donations included three apparates, hundreds of sets of turnout gear, SCBA’s and tons of other firefighting equipment. The Peruvian Fire Service has expressed their gratitude for these donations and quickly became proficient in the use of these donated items and rapidly put them into service in the communities they serve. This year’s FWB Canada team of instructors features a broad knowledge base and come from a number of different BC Fire Departments including Quesnel Fire Dept. Departing April 1, the team will spend two weeks delivering intensive training covering a range of topics including positive pressure ventilation, auto extrication, emergency scene management, essential fire attack skills, first aid/EMS, driver operator training, fire ground survival and fire investigation. Schneider sees this as an opportunity to take the knowledge he’s gained from over

13 years in the Fire Service and guide the Bomberos towards more safe and efficient firefighting practices. “I am very passionate about the fire service and being a part of the brotherhood of firefighting. I am excited to pass on some of the knowledge and experience that I have gained here in North America and share it with the Peruvian Bomberos”, Schneider said. Schneider and the Quesnel Fire Department, along with the other members of Firefighters Without Borders Canada, have been involved in fundraising efforts and securing donations of equipment for their deployment. The organization and its members, through personal cost and donations, bear all the costs of shipping equipment, developing training programs, travel expenses and utilize their vacation time for the mission. Vancouver Fire Rescue Lieutenant Bob Dubbert is the Team Leader. This will be the fourth deployment to Peru for team

members Rod DeBoer, Randy Dubbert, and Bob Dubbert and the second deployment for Glenn Paley. The remainder of the team members including Schneider are making their inaugural deployment with Firefighters Without Borders Canada to this country. Firefighters Without Borders Canada (www. fwbcanada.ca) is a registered charity in Vancouver B.C. What began as a group of dedicated firefighters in 2008, then became Firefighters Without Borders BC and finally Firefighters Without Borders Canada. The mission of the group is to collect outdated firefighting apparates and equipment and donate it to countries where there is a need.

Since 2008, the group has donated 13 fire trucks, more than 1,000 sets of turnout gear, 400 breathing apparatus and more than 20 tons of equipment valued at more than $2 million to places such as the Philippines, The Congo, El Salvador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Thailand. Since 2008, FFWB has deployed on training missions to El Salvador – 5 times; Paraguay – 4 times; Peru – 3 times and once each to Panama and Thailand. The main emphasis on these deployments is to deliver training. Firefighters from across B.C., who have participated in these training deployments, have done so using their own vacation time and paying their own airfares.

The big things and the little things Relay D News

uring the Relay For Life season, there is a lot of talk about money. It’s understandable, considering that Relay is the biggest revenue generating event of the year for the Canadian Cancer Society. We are always excited to see our fundraising totals climbing: as of Monday, Quesnel Relay For Life participants have raised $13,536 between all registered teams. With all this talk of money, though, it’s easy to become distracted from why we raise these funds. It’s for the big things that the Canadian Cancer Society does and the little things. The big things are the ones that make the news and that first come to mind when people think of a cancer charity. The Canadian Cancer Society funds research for all types of cancer, choosing the most promising projects to donate funds too. This includes a lot of research here in B.C. and even in the North at the University of Northern British Columbia. We are the only cancer charity that supports research for all types of cancer – this means that whatever type of cancer has touched your life, chances are the Canadian Cancer Society is supporting work to treat or cure it. One of the biggest

things that the Canadian Cancer Society BC Yukon has done lately is to build the Kordyban Lodge in Prince George to support the BC Cancer Center for the North. The Kordyban Lodge: a comforting, affordable place for people to stay when receiving cancer treatment. Before the opening of this lodge and the BC Cancer Center for the North, people had to travel at least as far south as Kelowna to receive treatment. Now cancer patients can remain closer to home and receive dedicated, compassionate care at the Kordyban Lodge. It’s the seemingly little things that the Canadian Cancer Society does that can have the most memorable impact on the lives of cancer patients and their families. These are the things that are right here in our community to support local survivors and fighters. Quesnel is very lucky to have a Canadian Cancer Society Resource Centre in town, at 332 Front St. Here people can stop in to talk one of our dedicated volunteers, who can provide you with information on different types of cancer, on the services that the Canadian Cancer Society

provides, or just give you someone to talk to about your cancer situation. The CancerConnection and Cancer Information Service is another great resource that anyone can access. By calling 1-888-939-3333, the Canadian Cancer Society can not only answer any of your cancer-related questions through experienced health care professionals, but we can connect you with volunteers who have gone through a similar cancer journey as you. Sometimes an empathetic listener who can truly understand your fears, concerns and situation can make all the difference. Relay For Life is about so much more than money – it is about doing everything we can to make that cancer journey as easy as possible for everyone affected. Every bit of money raised during Relay For Life goes a long way towards helping people with cancer. We want to see you make as big a difference as possible – we challenge every team

to participate in the province-wide Relay For Life Fundraising Day April 13th. Join nearly 1,000 other teams in fundraising on this day. If you need ideas for fundraisers, visit www.relaybc.ca. Participate in the Scotiabank GRAND Challenge. From April 1-18, every $1,000 your team raises will earn you an entry into the grand challenge. April 19 two teams will walk away with an extra $1,000 in a matching donation from Scotiabank. Every grand raised earns you an entry, so the more you raise, the better chance of adding another grand to your fundraising total. Be sure to join the Relay For Life – Quesnel BC Facebook page to share fundraising events and ideas and to connect with other teams. There will be no Relay For Life Information Night in March. If you have any questions you would like answered, contact your team mentor or email quesnelrelay@ bc.cancer.ca and we will make sure you

get the information you need. For more information on the Relay For Life event or how you can get involved, contact Michelle Godfrey at 778-414-1222 or 250-983-8815, or Kara Perdue at 250-983-4241. You can also email quesnelrelay@ bc.cancer.ca. For questions about teams contact Cathy Briggs at 250-7471739. You can also visit the Relay For Life website at www.relaybc.ca/ quesnel2013 for information on the Canadian Cancer Society, to register your team, and for online donations.

Life Insurance: A Good Choice to Protect Your Mortgage If you’re buying your first home, or moving into a different one or negotiating a new mortgage, you will probably be asked if you want to purchase mortgage insurance so that your mortgage will get paid in case you or your spouse dies. Many Canadians do buy this insurance, which is typically offered by the mortgage lender. But is mortgage insurance really such a good idea, or is there an alternative? Actually, you do have another option: individual life insurance. And when you purchase life insurance to protect your mortgage, you can gain some key advantages over mortgage insurance. Here are a few to consider: • Flexibility — If you purchase mortgage insurance, the lender is the beneficiary. But when you own a life insurance policy, you get to choose the beneficiary, so you can name your spouse — and, quite frankly, he or she may need the money more than the mortgage company. Once your surviving spouse receives the tax-free death benefit, he or she can use the money for any purpose, including paying off the mortgage or replacing lost income. In fact, life insurance can be customized to meet your specific needs. • Portability — If you move, or move your mortgage, your mortgage insurance ends, and if you want new mortgage insurance for your next home, you may need to requalify. This might involve higher rates, or you could be declined or denied coverage. But your life insurance policy is “portable,â€? which means it goes where you go. • No loss in value of coverage — Over time, you’ll pay down the amount of money you owe on your mortgage, but your premiums will not decrease, so, in effect, your mortgage insurance will become increasingly expensive. However, your life insurance premiums pay for the same amount of insurance for the entire life of the policy. Ultimately, the key difference between mortgage insurance and life insurance is that mortgage insurance covers a debt, while life insurance protects a person. And since people are more valuable than debts, you can infer that life insurance is more valuable than mortgage insurance. So the next time you’re considering purchasing a home or changing your mortgage, give careful thought to using life insurance to protect your mortgage — and a whole lot more.

OPINIONS

Archaic beliefs

H

ow could anyone protest love? The “union” between two people is sacred in its honesty, respect, trust and support – it has nothing to do with what body parts those two committed people have. The recent protests over same-sex marriage are as archaic as they are bullshit. Why would anyone feel they have a right to tell anybody they cannot marry their partner? It’s family. It’s two people coming together in love and simply wanting their union sanctioned by law. Good for you two, fly at ‘er. And good luck – marriage is tough. For those protesting their right to marry, what is your deal? Seriously. Do you protest when someone is marrying a total jerk or a gold-digger? Do these two people’s decision to marry or not really affect your life? And do not use the lame “argument” that children grow up to be more settled and successful if raised by a “mom and a dad.” Children grow up to be kind, driven, compassionate individuals when it is instilled and demonstrated at home by two moms, two dads, one mom, one dad, mom and dad, grandma... you get the picture. Forty years ago protesters took to Washington over race clashes, surely they felt passionate about their “cause.” Without a doubt their racist mentality was justified in their teeny tiny brains. And now, thank goodness, we look back and shudder in disgust at their hatred. We breath sighs of relief our children are growing up in a world that (in some ways) judges not on colour of skin, but on kindness of heart. It matters not who you marry or what you look like – it matters how you treat those around you; it matters how we demonstrate to our children that love and acceptance or true traits of a decent human being. Ask me to protest war, ask me to protest bullying, ask me to protest hate – do not ask me to protest love, for in the end that is all we are truly looking for. –Autumn MacDonald, Observer

A movie experience from memory lane

C

all me crazy, but I miss renting movies. I’m not talking about ordering the on-demand shows from cable or Netflix, but physically renting them the old fashioned way – from a video store. That outing used to be a weekend ritual for our family. Rarely did we know what we’d be taking home until we got there and looked. My husband and I would usually start off doing the rounds together, checking out the new releases before venturing over to the shelves where the older films were displayed in their faded covers; me in the drama and comedy sections, he in the action and thriller. Paul would pick out one or two, and I would pick out one or two and then we’d haggle. Our kids would be in the family section doing the same. More often than not, they’d choose movies they’d already seen. Sometimes we would as well.   It was fun. Even if one person was getting on someone else’s nerves because he or she was

On A Brighter Note taking too long to decide, the experience itself was great. Of course, if you’d asked me at the time if I’d rather just order shows less expensively, in the comfort of our own home, and not have to pay the late return fees that we almost always incurred, I would have said yes. But I wouldn’t have anticipated just how much I’d miss perusing the aisles in person. Even decades before that I frequented video stores. In high school my best friend had wealthy parents and therefore owned a brand new state-of-the-art Beta video machine. Being the only one from our group who did at the time, her house became our movie-

inferior VHS tapes were being sold, but we didn’t care. We were just happy to watch movies we wanted to see, when we wished, and without commercials. As with everything in technology, things evolved and those big clunky video tapes we all marvelled at when they first came out were replaced with sleek skinny DVD’s that allowed us to pause, select scenes, and never rewind again. Now even those are starting to become a thing of the past for so many of us. Being able to order movies and TV shows digitally is delightfully convenient in some ways, but the excitement and adventure in hunting for cinematic treasures, new and old, good and bad, is not what it used to be. Thankfully there are still a few places left for people like me to rewind and revisit that wonderful, magical feeling of our former weekend ritual. Lori Welbourneis a syndicated columnist.

watching hangout. We didn’t stop going to theatres – we still bussed downtown for matinees whenever we were allowed. But to rent a show and watch it at night while lounging around eating homemade popcorn became a wonderful treat for all of us. And picking out the movie at the little rental place beforehand felt magical. Like my children, we often rented films we’d seen before and would watch them repeatedly. Other times we’d choose them based solely on their covers. Occasionally we’d take advice from the video store owner and rent something completely inappropriate for our age, such The Postman Always Rings Twice or Last Tango in Paris. We would then vow never to take a recommendation from him, or any other adult, in the future. Over the years the prices dropped and all our families eventually bought video machines. By that time only VCRs equipped for the larger,

Friday, March 29, 2013 Quesnel Cariboo Observer

Ignored concerns Editor: For some time now our Independent MLA for Cariboo North, Mr. Bob Simpson, has been waxing eloquent in the media about the virtues and advantages of being free of party politics.  His position, since being dismissed from the NDP, has been, that as an independent representative for the constituents of Cariboo North, he now has a much greater latitude in his ability to speak forth on concerns that are of relevance to those who elected him to office. In a recent email send out to Cariboo residents from Bob’s constituency assistant, Adam Schaan, he again touts the value of being independent of the “political party system”, stating that, “I’ve found there is a wholly different world available to people who want to run for office to truly serve their constituents”, that being the “world of the parliamentarian” rather than a mere party hack enslaved to “their political masters.”  Identifying himself as such he goes on to say, “It’s a world unencumbered by petty partisanship… a world that exists outside of the power struggles that absorb party politicians and their paid political staff… a parliamentarian can… advance good public policy… put forward private members’ bills… ask real questions…

Letters to the Editor

raise real issues in the press… like hydraulic fracking… truly addressing climate change…”, etc. Well I thought to myself, upon reading these laudatory remarks, this is very interesting indeed given some of the concerns that I and others have had over the years which never seem to reach the light of day, either within the hallowed halls of the B.C. legislature or the mainstream media. Bob may truly be on to something here; something sorely lacking for a long time within our democratic framework. So I replied to Schaan’s email saying, “Does this mean that now Bob will recognize the fact of chemtrails and their use world-wide to poison our atmosphere, make people sick, artificially create “global warming”, etc? I believe it was the NDP’s party policy not to cop to the reality of this phenomenon.  Were Bob to drop the presence of pretending there’s no evidence of this global attack upon our atmosphere and break the story in the legislature he’d be greeted with an astounding number of new supporters, not only in B.C. but around the globe. That would be a truly parliamentarian and humanitarian thing to do. I received a phone call from Adam regarding my email.  What I heard from him in

terms of my request was, what I feel is, the same old line that Bob had been giving those of us concerned about this ever-present, growing phenomenon of massive geoengineering of our atmosphere. No, Bob won’t bring it up because there’s conflicting opinions on whether it exists or not. No, it’s not a provincial matter but a federal one related to the department of transportation and so you need to contact your MP instead and try to get them to raise the issue federally. It appears that once a politician – be it a garden variety party one or an independent one or even one of the elite “parliamentary” strain – the ability to speak out on behalf of their constituents and even voice for a few seconds concerns that are of paramount importance to the health and well-being of the people of the Cariboo, the province, the country as a whole and even the planet, suddenly disappears when it concerns issues deemed taboo by the status quo; ones that must be hushed up and relegated to the level of conspiracy theories and kook science; unworthy of serious debate or even a brief mention, whether in the media or the legislature. So what makes Bob Simpson any different than the rest of the politicians in this province? Arthur Topham Cottonwood

OUR HISTORY

F

Scheduling the hangman

rank Cotton was the longest serving sheriff in the District of New Westminster in the mid 1930s years. One of his duties was to arrange with the hangman, always known by the pseudonym of Arthur Ellis, to carry out the death sentence as set by a judge and jury. Ellis lived in Montreal and served all across Canada as the only hangman. The sheriff had to contact Ellis in order to fix a date and to work out a schedule if there were Andy Motherwell Historical Footnotes several death by hanging sentences anywhere in Canada. Travel arrangements had to be made for Ellis, sites procured and arranged, witnesses contacted (including a doctor who could pronounce the criminal dead) and details of burial arranged. Arranging a date could be complicated by weather, a trail derail or other problems. The sentences were carried out without fanfare in most cases.

However, the press did dramatize one case were three boys were to be hung simultaneously, the action billed as a double header in the paper. The physical details called for the hangman to weigh the prisoner and adjust the knot so death was instantaneous when Ellis sprung the trap. A typical newspaper report of that is shown here. There were not many such sentences, but Ellis made a living doing it. There was not much wrangling by lawyers in those years and the sentencing was carried out in short order and Arthur Ellis left for his next assignment somewhere in Canada. Families often took possession of the body. If no family came Newspaper article regarding preparing for a hanging forward, the sheriff had to arrange a site and carry out the in B.C.

Pet stores graciously donate food and recently a local mill held a silent auction and donated the funds to the ranch. A foster fee is charged for adoptions and sometimes cash donations are received. All of the monies are accounted for. Now the ranch is afloat and most of the expenses are covered. They will have ongoing needs, however and could use more help. Fencing will continue to be a project, so, if you have time, please bring a hammer to the spring work bee. Bottles always need to be sorted and taken to the depot. They rely on volunteers to transfer animals and provide foster homes. Right now the large animals have small shelters and the hay is in the open so the dream is to have a barn.

Taste and see that God is good N

ow may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 I thought of this scripture the other day while I was reading the news. There didn’t seem to be a lot of hope in any of the articles. One article was about a talented young man who had committed suicide. It seems that he had lost all hope. I could relate to that article as I remembered what it was like before Rawlin Falk I became a ChrisLakeview Church tian. The book of Ephesians describes it this way, “…having no hope and without God in the world.” There was definitely very little joy and peace in my life at that time. Then someone told me that Christ offered to take up residence in my life; that Christ in me would be the hope of glory; that I would have hope, not only in this life but the life to come. At that time I didn’t have much confidence he would want someone like me, but I had some hope in the scripture that assured me that if I received him, he would give me the power to become one of the sons of God. If I would believe in his name. So I believed and I prayed. It was a simple prayer, but sincere. He has been true to his word. He has filled me with joy and peace in believing. I believe this promise is for anyone who will come to him. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man that trusts in Him. Psalm 34:8. Rawlin Falk is an elder with Lakeview Church.

They are available whenever she wants them. She rototills once at the beginning and then lays out her 60-foot rows. She hates weeding, so she mulches the rows with grass clippings and waters the plants only. When the farm house burned down several years ago, Mark salvaged the copper pipes and has since built her a drip irrigation system that gets rotated every day and is frugal on water. Linda tries not to use any chemical fertilizer and instead relies on their own cow manure and compost. Mark has set up black bins and blue barrels which collect their household compost and garden clippings and then are added to the garden in the fall. Recently, she had trouble growing peas and after a variety of unsuccessful soil tests, has decided to send a sample to the U.S. for examination. The raspberries that Mark loves so much are from the original farm and the Ekelunds simply divide the plants every few years. They have had chickens in the past and still raise three cows a year for their own meat. – submitted by Colleen Gatenby

Stay gold Thunder JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter The Bantam Thunder stayed gold, winning the top medal at provincials in Dawson Creek last week. The Thunder came off some down time coming into the provincials, but they came in ready. “They came mentally and physically to play. They put all the distractions behind them that week and did a fantastic job,” coach Allen Slaney said. Coming into the tournament, Castlegar was their first opponent and they offered significant resistance. Tied for much of the game, with a lot of back and forth, Quesnel’s Matt Kuehn scored with 24 seconds left in game giving Quesnel the 2-1 win. Revelstoke was next and they proved to be an even closer match, tying at 3-3.

It was their third game, against Juan de Fuca, that the Thunder found their winning ways. “We got really pumped before that game. We started talking more and the bodies came out reedy to go and we started scoring goals,” captain Cole Slaney said. “That really put the momentum on our side for the whole tournament.” Both teams came out with energy. Juan de Fuca was the first to get on the board, but Quesnel was quick to come back, scoring two to Juan de Fuca’s one in the first. The game continued in that vein, with back and forth play, but Quesnel continued to double up on Juan de Fuca until the 6-3 final. “They just really turned it up and there was no one standing in our way with the exception of our final game against

Jonas Gagnon Sports Reporter

Castlegar,” Allen Slaney said. The next day, the Thunder showed their momentum with two striking wins. First, Quesnel took down Cranbrook in a one-sided 16-2 game, then, in the same day, beat Juan de Fuca 8-1 in the first two periods, sitting back and saving energy for the final period, in which there The Thunder celebrate their provincial win on the ice.

Quesnel ringette finds gold down south JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter

The U16 Quesnel ringette team ranged far afield, bringing back golden treasure from exotic Surrey. The Quesnel club went south for their provincials, with a gold and silver tournament filling their sails and driving them onward to victory. "We had played most of the competition and we went into the provincials with the goal of winning it," coach Vernon Belcher said. The club started clearing their path to treasure in a pitched battle against the Kelowna team. Quesnel rolled through Kelowna with a convincing 9-3 win. Next in their quest, they took on a strong Westside team, who they would meet again further down the road. Quesnel took the upper hand in their first meeting, running away to a 7-3 win, forging their way deep into the heart of the competition.

A Quesnel player handles rings around a competitor. Shuswap, who assistant-coach Ron Richert said was one of the best teams in the league, supplied Quesnel's only defeat in their quest for golden glory. The game was tied through the first, but the Shuswap topped Quesnel by a single point in the second to win, 8-7. The loss, which could have taken the wind from their sails at the midpoint of

the tournament, did nothing to quell the enthusiasm of the team, Richert said. With team spirit still riding high, Quesnel faced another difficult opponent, their Central Interior rivals Prince George, in a chance for a by into finals. A win would also take both the Shuswap, a difficult adversary, and P.G.,

their heated rivals, out of contention, leaving an easier path to gold. The game turned out to be a nail biter. Tied through the first at one a piece, the game was won on the back lines. "It became a goaltender battle," Belcher said. In the second, Quesnel pulled in front, but a penalty shot put their victory in house-of-cards territory. Goalie Dakota Gatzke was on his game, making the save and preserving the lead and the victory. "I knew at that point we just had to play well and we had it beat," Belcher said. Quesnel met Westside again in the final bout to contend for the gold. The score was close through the first, tied at 2-2 at half time, but Quesnel came into the second on fire, racking up twice the goals Westside did to win the game 6-4. "The girls played really well and deserved to win," said Richert.

Silver medal linings for peewees JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter

The peewee Thunder ended their season, one filled with moments of sunshine and clouds, with a silver lining at the provincials in Creston last week. “I couldn’t be more proud of the team, as we were in a very tough pool and still made it through to the finals,” coach Dustin Peacock said. The Thunder picked their way through the competition with a great goaltending team of Nathan Schofield and Brandon Peacock and by capitalizing on every chance they got. They started the playoffs with a double-header, taking on Castlegar and their hosts, Creston. Both games turned out to be close, with good goaltending keeping the Thunder

within reach of the win and skaters that made their shots count. The Thunder took Castlegar 3-2 in a tight game that was tied 1-1 through the first two periods. “This was a great game for our team; we needed to start the Championships on the right foot and we did that,” Peacock said. The Castlegar game was similarly matched, with both teams a little tired from earlier games. The Thunder took the lone point to win 1-0. The second day pitted the Thunder against eventual tournament winners Dawson Creek. Despite a lopsided score, Peacock was proud that his team never gave up. Tuesday brought the team up against the Burnaby Winter Club, which played

out opposite to the previous game, with a 5-2 win and a lag in their play. “ I didn’t think we played our best game but we seemed to keep scoring,” Peacock said. With a single lose in the round robin, the Thunder were looking at semi-finals with a 5-2 win against Whitehorse. Coming up against Terrace, the Thunder knew a win would put them in a guaranteed medal position. With that push behind them, the Thunder came out firing on all cylinders. “This was a great game for us, from Brandon Peacock in net all the way out,” Peacock said. “We had scoring from all three lines and the defense chipping in with multiple assists.” Coming into the finals, the Thunder

met the only team to find a chink in their armour: Dawson Creek. In the finals Dawson Creek hit hard and fast, taking the game 14-1. The Thunder, though, had taken down every other team, earning the silver lining. The season was plagued with injuries and sickness, said Peacock, but he saw

the resilience that took the team to silver from the very beginning. “This 2012-2013 PeeWee team should be very proud of themselves, as they have represented Quesnel with class and respect. I know one thing they made there coach very proud,” Peacock said. “Thanks to all for a great year.”

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, think about adding some new skills to your resume. It’s not that your job is in turmoil right now, but it always pays to be a step ahead when it comes to your career. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, just because everyone else is making changes doesn’t mean you have to at this time as well. If things are working out, then let them stay as they are for a while. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Don’t set limits on what you do, Leo. Changes at work mean you may need to fill different roles that require new skills. There’s a good chance you can master them. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, Virgo. Attend a fun function to put yourself in touch with new people and lead to encounters that can help your future. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, don’t feel guilty if your opinion differs from others’. If you don’t agree with the consensus, then that is your opinion and your right. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, say what is on your mind because sometimes people just need to hear the honest truth. You have a good way of exacting authority and representing others. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, get together with people who share your love of adventure this week. Together you can enjoy time spent living vicariously and enjoying the scenery flying by. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Discuss issues from your past that you have yet to resolve, Aquarius. This is the week to “come clean” with a spouse or romantic partner or someone else close to you. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, do generous things for others, and not only will you feel great, but also you will get an unexpected reward.

JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter The Lakeview elementary girls have taken over the district with their prowess at the hoops. The girls won their district championship last week, beating the other elementary schools in the area. "Our girls are skilled, plus they're big, so it's a tough combination," coach Cyril Tobin said. The girls won their regional tournament and met St. Ann’s and Voyageur, the winner of their respective regional tournaments, in the final district tournament. The Lakeview girls, in a series of round robin games, took firm control of their opponents and came out ahead. A week later Lakeview hosted the boys' District Championships. Dragon Lake beat Red Bluff in a very close final. Red Bluff pulled out all the stops, playing their best game and forcing Dragon Lake to do the same. In the end the bigger, taller Dragon Lake team was able to overcome Red Bluff and were crowned district champions. St. Ann’s was able to take third in the nine team tournament.

Sport School The second weekend of April, the aboriginal youth development camp will take over the Twin Arenas to teach those youngsters a thing or two about hockey. April 13, the camp will run a variety of sessions for young players five –­ 18 and a pair of goalie sessions, one for players in the lower end of the age spectrum, the other for the highers ages. The camp features two certified coaches on hand to train the young athletes. The deadline to register is April 9. For Information contact Michelle Munch, 250-992-8347 or michelle.munch@qnfc.bc.ca.

Memories in My Rear-View Due to the mist of March The light of day is hindered The highway shines with morning frost Along the close of winter Tattoos of a fragile time Are scattered in my mind Tomorrow’s still a mystery Still a road that won’t unwind

Driving through this dreary haze I think of what we went through Traces of the way we were Are memories in my rear-view

My impression of true love Is purely based on faith I’m still waiting for its touch I’m still searching for her face

Beyond this mist awaits a bridge That I have yet to cross As the final kiss of winter Lies in the morning frost

I’ve barely known the comfort Of someone by my side I’m merely an observer As I watch the world outside

Matt Merna

SPRING When the flowers start to bloom, you know that it is spring, The birds fly all about and they start to throb and sing. They gather mud and sticks to make themselves a nest, While the flies and the mosquitoes become noted as a pest.

Now we have a vision and it’s plain as can be, We’d like to thank the Lord we have the ability to see. We also can be thankful for the fact that we can hear, So the surroundings all around us become so very dear.

The animals are roaming, their fur they start to lose, The bears come out of hiding, there’s no more time to snooze. The grass is really growing, the fields and trees are green, Looking out toward the mountains, it is a pretty scene.

Let’s tale the time to ponder of the gifts that we’ve been given, It’s such a lovely life that we really have been liven’. I’m so glad to have the wisdom to take in all this glory, To take advantage of it all is just another story.

Just sitting in the sun, really gives your heart a life, For it took a lot of talent, to make such a lovely gift. The breeze is blowing softly, the sky is clear and blue, The world and all its glory is the place for me and you.

Elaine Couldwell

The Birthday Party I woke up this morning, it’s my birthday they say, A bunch of my friends are dropping over today. We’ll have a nice visit and something to eat, Having guests over is really a nice treat. We’ll play a few games and then cut the cake, Perhaps even later, we’ll swim in the lake. This birthday party has really been fun, It’s really a shame that the day’s nearly done.

Countless Hours

To illustrate this sorrow Behind my storied eyes I turn to my piano And write the tears I’ve cried

I can only speak of love From the way it broke my heart Although it was short lived It left a lasting mark

Matt Merna

The Journey When I began life, tossing and turning, I would be walking a road, that we all call life’s journey.

No more having to work, when I’m lazy and tired, I’ll go fishing and holding, because I’ll be retired.

I wanted so badly, to grow up and be big, That I missed out on the part of just being a kid.

Well finally came the day that I’d been anticipating, But it didn’t turn out to be worth all the waiting.

So I couldn’t wait, till I could drive my own car, Up to that point, life was boring so far.

All those years spent living, with stress and despair, Has caused me a stroke, now I’m in a wheelchair.

If I could just drive away, when life’s boring and crappy, Just me and my car, I know I’d be happy.

All I look forward to now, is my very last breath, When these horrible days will be ended with death.

But the good times I was having didn’t last very long, About as fast as they came, they went, and were gone.

I sit here shattered, broken and sad, All of my hopes and dreams had turned out so bad.

If I had a good job, big house and a wife, I know I’d be happy for the rest of my life.

The day finally came, and I’m at heaven’s gate, God said to me “Son, why all your life did you hate?”

All of my cousins and family friends too, Brought cards, gifts, and things Well I’m miserable all day, because we could do. I don’t like my work, We all sat outside and built a small I hate maying this mortgage and fire, my wife thinks I’m a jerk. Before very long we all started to tire. I’ve failed as a husband, I’ve failed as a man, The day is now over, it’s come to Why is dad so unhappy, the kids an end, don’t understand? I’ve visited closely with every I couldn’t wait to retire, and then friend. I’d be glad, they’ve made my day such a time I’d just lay back and live out the of delight, years that I had. That I’ll rest peacefully all through the night. Elaine Couldwell

I wasted countless hours On someone who wouldn’t change My brushes with this feeling Left my heart in chains

You spent your whole life wanting and yearning, You missed out on my gift, the gift was THE JOURNEY. Tony Billey
