ICBC road safety campaign targets youth On average, 80 youth are injured and two are killed in crashes during April, May and June every year in Northern B.C., according to a Thursday report from ICBC. The statistics are based on 2007 to 2011 ICBC and police data. Youth are defined as age 16 to 21. Additional statistics indicate that on average of 44 youth are killed and 7,300 are injured in crashes every year throughout B.C. On average 10 of those youth killed and 400 of those youth injured are the results of crashes are in Northern B.C. The statistics also indicate that 25 per cent of speeding drivers and 19 per cent of impaired drivers in B.C. involved in crashes, resulting injuries or fatalities, were between the ages of 16 and 21. Starting next week, ICBC road safety speakers John Westhaver,

Mike Buckingham and Kevin Brooks will be visiting Northern B.C. schools to connect with high school students as they head into the grad and prom party season. Mike Buckingham is scheduled to speak at Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools on May 28. For the past 16 years, ICBC road safety speakers have been sharing their stories with more than 50,000 B.C. high school students every year. “Our road safety speaker program is one way that we reach out to students to motivate them to make smart, safe driving choices,” said John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety. “Our road safety speakers connect with students through their personal, heartbreaking stories and help them realize the tragic and life-changing consequences of taking risks while

driving.” “There is no more powerful way to have students realize the potential outcomes of their choices than the ICBC road safety speakers,” said Kevin Baldridge, vice-principal Centre for Learning Alternatives in Prince George. “The tragedy and loss the speakers have experienced reaches the students on a very personal level. Our students see themselves in the stories being shared and learn the steps they can to take to keep themselves and others safe. The road safety speaker presentations change behavior and in turn, I believe, save lives.” You can find video clips of each speaker and more details on their presentations on “It’s important that we do what we can to help B.C. youth understand the devastating impact one wrong decision could have on their

lives and their families,” said Mary Polak, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “The reality is that car crashes are the number one preventable cause of death for youth in B.C. ICBC’s road safety speakers help strengthen young people’s decision-making skills and teach them to think twice before taking risks behind the wheel.” “The driving challenges faced by northern and rural drivers are often extraordinary,” said Shirley Bond, Minister of Justice and Attorney General. “There’s snow on the ground for more time during the year, secondary roads, and a lot of people who enjoy recreational activities in the back country. That’s why it’s critical for young drivers to be absolutely sober when driving. ICBC’s road safety speakers drive home that message in a personal and compelling way.”

The old man and the pussy willows Whenever I spot the first pussy willows of spring on our back country roads an old story by Kenneth McNeill Wells pops to mind. Wells and his wife Lucille Oille moved from the city to the Medonte township of Ontario in the 1940’s. There they found an abandoned log home they recognized as once being an object of craftsmanship and beauty. They purchased the house for fifteen dollars with the provision it be moved. After a frantic search they finally found a piece of nearby property on which to place it. Ken writes how the telephone lines shook with laughter as locals swapped tales of the hapless pair of city slickers


who not only bought a log home worthy of a bonfire, but were now attempting to reassemble it on four starved acres rife with ravines, stumps and boulders. Happily the hardfought result was four acres of Eden where they kept milk goats, chickens, ducks and-most successfully-bees. An artist of many mediums, Lucille designed beautiful little honey pots that oc-

casionally surface on eBay today. Ken wrote about the couple’s hilarious and often poignant adventures in a newspaper column for the Toronto Evening Telegram. The columns were later republished in a series of books illustrated with woodcuts by Lucille. A collection of these stories can still be found in The Owl Pen Reader (Owl Pen being the name of Ken’s column and their acreage) but sadly the rest of his titles are long out of print. I discovered the pussy willow story in a copy of By Jumping Cat Bridge that I picked up in an antique store in Edmonton. The story begins when Ken comes across Tom, an elderly neighbour, while

out on a springtime walk. He falls into step with the old man and tries--without success--to strike up a conversation. “It’s too bad you’re busy,” says Tom partway into their walk. “I ain’t.” Ken cheerfully replies. They continue on around a willow bog where Tom asks Ken where he’s heading. Ken replies that he has no particular destination. And then it dawns on him. “Are you trying to say you don’t want me along?” “In a manner of speakin’...” comes the reply. “Dang!” Ken explodes. “You don’t need to git riled,” says Tom. “I’m just tellin’ you. I’ve been tryin’ to git rid of you ever since

we met at the crossroads.” “No,” Ken protests. “I figured you’d leave when I started up the side-road,” says Tom. “You tagged along. I was sure you’d leave when I headed across the field. You still followed on.” “Why didn’t you say...” Ken starts to ask. “I didn’t want to hurt your feelings,” says Tom. “I figured for sure you’d go about your business when I started tromping through all that slush in the field back there.” Ken stammers, “I don’t...I don’t understand.” Tom leans in and points a bony finger first at Ken and then at the willows in the bog. “You see them

Then Tom leans in close and shakes his fist in Ken’s face. “You call me an old fool!” he roars. “You say there is no fool like an old fool an’ so help me...” “Dog-gone it, Tom!” Ken roars back. “Dog-gone-itall, I’ll help you pick ‘em.” “No,” says Tom. “Yeah,” insists Ken. Tom stares at Ken for a moment and the fire goes out of his eyes. The cords in his neck relax. A slow smile spreads across his face. “No,” he says again. “You pick some for your own woman.” Shannon McKinnon is a syndicated humour columnist from Northern BC.

AN APPLE A DAY... In the 19th century, there was no control over the sale of “patented” medicines and many contained addictive substances like laudanum, which contains tincture of opium. It made addicts out of many people. An example was Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup. Many babies died because they were breastfed by mothers taking the nostrum and the child’s immature metabolic system couldn’t handle the narcotic and died from it. There is much more control and safety today. More than 50,000 Canadians have a stroke each year and one-third die from it. Speed is of the essence for successful treatment so being familiar with the signs of a stroke is important. They include: sudden weakness, trouble speaking, sudden vision problems, sudden headache and dizziness. Call 911 ASAP.

trees?” “Yeah,” nods Ken. “Them’s pussy willows.” Ken nods again, confused. “I’m an old man,” says Tom. “I’m old enough to know that it’s only kids who gather pussy willows in the spring time. I don’t aim to have you going around telling the world I’m in my second childhood.” Then he thrusts out his chin and adds, “But seeing as how you’re here I’ll give it to you straight. I am to start pickin’ pussy willows. I aim to start right away. I’m going to pick ‘em for my old woman, same as I have done every spring time since me an’ her were kids together in the old red school over on the side-road.”

Listening and playing music is good for your health and wellbeing. However, some musicians can develop stress injuries playing certain instruments. Examples include “fiddler’s neck” due to the chin-rest on the violin. Clarinettists can get a form of contact dermatitis called cheilitis on the middle of the lower lip. And cellists can get some soreness or redness on the ribs from contact with the cello. As we age, we have more medical problems and often there is a “pill of every” ill. Our body’s ability to metabolize and excrete drugs lessens with age due to our reduced kidney and liver functions. Dizziness can occur often in the elderly and may be due to medications.

Jobs minister supports LNG industry in B.C. In his Top 10 report March 28, MLA Pat Bell. Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour, lends his support to the liquefied natural gas industry in B.C. with the following points. 1. Liquefied natural gas is natural gas cooled to minus 160° Celsius - so it can remain in a liquid state. As a liquid, this natural gas can be safely moved overseas by ship. LNG has been safely transported, and used, around the world for roughly 50 years. Global trade of LNG is rising and the global demand for natural gas is high. 2. With demand growing quickly markets like Asia, natural gas prices have reached up to four times as high as they are in North America, where prices remain dormant as a result of the oversupply of natural gas.

3. Assuming two larger- and three smaller-sized LNG plants, along with supporting pipelines, we anticipate on average more than 39,000 annual jobs will be created over a nine-year construction period and 75,000 jobs once these plants are fully operational. This study has been prepared with an independent consultant. 4. The nine-year construction phase for LNG projects is the most labour intensive aspect of such projects with regard to generating direct jobs. As that phase winds down, those direct jobs are expected to be replaced with ongoing jobs needed to maintain the plants and supporting pipelines, as well as for supporting exploration and development of additional natural gas needed to supply the LNG plants. 5. We released British Columbia’s Natural

Gas Strategy: Fuelling B.C.’s Economy for the Next Decade and Beyond concurrently with the government’s Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Strategy. A primary goal: to attract investments necessary for capital planning, market diversification and the development of a LNG industry. 6. Since 2011, investments over $6 billion have been made to acquire upstream natural gas assets and execute strategic corporate acquisitions, including joint ventures that will anchor the development of pipelines and LNG plants in B.C. • $2.9-billion investment made by Mitsubishi Corporation. • Nexen Inc. and Inpex Corporation for $700 million. • A partnership between China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) and Shell Canada $1 billion. • Petronas, an expe-

rienced LNG operator, committed $1.07 billion 7. Government and BC Hydro are in negotiations with LNG proponents about their energy needs and any contributions needed to support the required infrastructure for energy interconnection. These agreements will provide greater certainty for future volume and timing of LNG electricity requirements and are key to securing this investment. There are a number of potential power configurations that are being examined, including, a blend of renewable, gas-fired and power through the grid and generating electricity by electric drives or natural gasfired plants on site. Under all scenarios, government is focused on having the cleanest LNG industry in the world. 1. In July 2012, the Province of British

Columbia updated the Clean Energy Act to ensure reliable, timely and cost-competitive mix of gas-fired and renewable power generation can be accessed to ensure industry is able to meet the large energy demand from LNG. 2. In order to access a large portion of B.C.’s natural gas, hydraulic fracturing is required. Without access to our natural gas, B.C. would lose investment capital; jobs; prospects for the service sector; economic activity in our rural northeast communities, and the opportunities we are creating with LNG. 10. The government of British Columbia has instituted stringent safety procedures for natural gas development. With the most modern regulations in Canada, B.C. is one of the most up-to-date regulators in the world for shale gas development.

Kitimat refinery project supported by retired Imperial Oil director Jim Shepard The Kitimat Refinery Project. I first heard of this concept from David Black a number of years ago. At the time I was skeptical of its chances. My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets.

My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like sur-

prises with taxes, regulations or tariffs. Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of diligence, deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative. The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond  any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of NDP, Liberal, Conservative or even Green should see the tremendous benefits that would come to B.C. with this project. This initiative will involve the investment of many billions of dollars. That’s for sure. It’s hard for any of us to visualize a million, let

alone a billion of any thing. So lets look at the “on the ground” facts of such an undertaking for all of us in B.C. Lets start with the big picture. When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. For the Kitimat refinery project that would mean several thousand mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase. It would also mean the creation of over 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running. This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year which means the tax revenue that could go toward healthcare, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly

NEWS Bird-Brained

Several years ago I had a call at work from my son who told me frantically that a woodpecker was stuck in our furnace. I was working out of town at that time and could not just run home so I tried to get him calm enough to tell me what was going on. I could hear clearly the tap, tap, tap-ping over the phone and wondered how the bird could possibly have got inside the furnace. I listened for a while and then called a local furnace company to come and help with the problem. My son was very


worried about the bird and made sure the furnace didn’t come on while he waited for the worker to arrive. I went back to my work and forgot about it until I got home. My son was not home when I arrived but on the counter was a bill from the plumbing

company for the house call. It was marked “no charge” and a huge happy face had been drawn on it. I called the company and the gal who took the call laughed heartily as she told me the service man had found the bird, alright – on top of the house pecking at the metal vent! The tapping had echoed down the pipes and sounded to my son like it was coming from inside the furnace. And, the plumbing company staff has never let me forget it, asking aall the time how the woodpecker is in my furnace! Shortly after that, in another

strange avian incident, my husband and I were at a barbeque with friends one evening when a pigeon landed on their roof. Our friends had never seen a pigeon in the area and thought it odd. It sat on the roof for a long time, watching us, before it flew over directly to me and landed on my head! It stayed there for about eight minutes,

Did you know... the minimum down payment for a primary or secondary home purchase is only 5%? just sitting on my head, and then flew to land on my husband’s head for a few more minutes. Neither of us had ever had anything like this happen before and our friends had never even seen a pigeon in their yard. We took a few pictures and, after a while, the pigeon flew off and has not been seen there since. I think I’ve been bird-brained!

Choose a hotel/motel that is protected by both smoke alarms and a fire sprinkler system. When you check in, ask the front desk what the fire alarm sounds like. When you enter your room, review the escape plan posted in your room. Take the time to find the exits and count the number of doors between your room and the exit. Make sure the exits are unlocked. If they are locked, report it to management right away. Keep your room key by your bed and take it with you if there is a fire. If the alarm sounds, leave right away, closing all doors behind you. Use the stairs — never use elevators during a fire. If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your exit

Greenhouse gas leaks from trust


The Pacific Carbon Trust orchestrated a months-long campaign of calls and letters to discredit a report from B.C.’s Auditor General on its first two big carbon offset projects, before it could be released. Just as the audit report was about to be made public, the trust, a Crown corporation created at taxpayer expense, participated in the leaking of selected critical letters to media outlets. Then the Speaker of the B.C. legislature, Bill Barisoff, made a final, clumsy effort to delay the release of the report. As soon as it was out, Environment Minister Terry Lake tried to discredit it, by blustering about all the highly paid experts who swore up and down that a forest reserve near Kootenay Lake, and a gas flaring reduction project near Fort Nelson, were bona fide carbon offsets worth $6 million of taxpayers’ money. The audit states in plain language, with charts and timelines, that the $6 million was basically given away for nothing. I look forward to further audits on this carbon offset scheme, assuming it survives after the May election, because these two projects aren’t the only boondoggles.

The Pacific Carbon Trust was set up in 2008 as part of former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate change program. To make the B.C. government’s operations “carbon neutral,” the government and all of its agencies were required to pay the trust $25 per tonne for their carbon dioxide emissions from fuel use. In 2011 alone, B.C. universities paid $4.46 million to the trust. B.C.’s 60 school districts paid a total of $5.36 million the same year, and the province’s six health authorities paid $5.79 million. The money is supposed

to go to projects that capture carbon, thus “offsetting” the heating of schools, the fuel burned by ambulances and so forth. The 55,000-hectare forest reserve is known as Darkwoods. The audit shows that the Nature Conservancy of Canada decided in 2006 to buy it, using $25 million of federal taxpayers’ money. The deal closed in 2008, the same year the Pacific Carbon Trust was formed. From 2008 to 2010, the trust bought 450,000 tonnes of carbon offset, based on independent evaluations that all rested on the assumption that Dark-

woods would be clear-cut logged. Since the forest was already owned by Canada’s leading conservancy, this assumption makes no sense. Was the conservancy going to log it, or flip it to someone who would, after accepting $25 million in tax money to acquire it? Legally, it could not. (I would add that the assumption that logging releases all of the carbon in a forest is also false. Lumber actually sequesters carbon for longer than trees, which eventually die and rot.) The audit found a similar case against EnCana’s flare reduction program, which

the company used on many wells before the trust started offering money. EnCana was saving money as well as reducing emissions without collecting offsets. Therefore, the audit concluded, neither of these projects was a credible offset because the emissions savings would have occurred anyway. Here’s the next Pacific Carbon Trust project that should be audited. In a complicated transaction, the trust bought offsets from something called the Great Bear Carbon Credit Limited Partnership. Yes, this is the worldfamous forest on B.C.’s

North Coast that was subject to a preservation deal hammered out between the Coastal First Nations, the B.C. government and three U.S.-backed environmental groups. That was in 2006. The offset purchases were in 2009 and 2010, years after detailed preservation areas were mapped and codified in law. Again, the trust paid for forest that was already preserved.

Spinney Brothers bluegrass concert Thursday The Hub Bluegrass Club is pleased to present a benefit concert for Cariboo Memorial Hospital by The Spinney Brothers, Canada’s international bluegrass band, says event organizer Rossetta Paxton. The concert takes place in the Gibraltar Room, Thursday, April 11. Comprised of Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple, and Darryl Hebb, The Spinney Brothers are originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. They debuted in 1992, showcasing a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music. The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet the brother’s music is equally shaped by their personal lives and rural heritage. By incorporating original

NEWS A healthy mouth is part of a healthy pregnancy

CAROL GILFORD There is nothing more precious than bringing a new life into the world. Teeth are not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of pregnancy and the health of the soonto-be mother and newborn child. However, dental care is an important part of a healthy pregnancy. Yes, it is safe to visit your dentist during your pregnancy for routine cleanings and check-ups. It is important to let the dental office know you are pregnant so they can adjust your appointment and treatment plan to accommodate you and your baby. Healthy teeth and gums means less

harmful bacteria to pass onto your baby. If you have tooth pain or an infection, be sure to see your dentist. Bacteria that cause gum disease have been linked to pre-term births and low birth weight babies. What you eat during pregnancy helps keep you healthy and contributes to the growth and development of your baby. Vitamins and minerals found in healthy foods are important for normal tooth formation which starts as early as five weeks. You may need to eat frequently during your pregnancy. Snack on healthy foods like fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products, grains and meats rather than sweet or sticky foods

RealToR Tips Tips on how to sell fast for top dollar

1. Before setting a price – do your homework. If you start too high you run the risk of having your home exposed to the market too long, buyers may think there is something wrong with it, and avoid interest in a showing. If you price too low you stand the chance of selling for less than you were hoping for. 2. When choosing a realtor keep in mind that not all Realtors are the same! Be as wary of quotes that are too low as those that are too high. Weigh your decision on someone that you can trust and feel confident they will do a good job on your behalf. 3. Appearance does matter – it is so critical to create an emotional look and feel of your home to prospective buyers, they will react on to what they see and smell. 4. Disclose everything – be proactive in disclosing all known defects. Disclosing issues gives the buyer a sense of honesty, and reduce the risk of liability or law suit later on. 5. Keep emotions in check during negotiations. Treat the offer using a business-like manner, especially if you receive a low offer, don’t take it personally and try to think of it as merely a starting point. You can counter a low offer even if it’s just under asking price; this lets the buyer know that you would like to work with them, but they need to adjust their price considerably.

that can increase your risk for tooth decay. Remember to cut down on sugar in tea and coffee and limit sugary drinks to mealtimes. Many pregnant women say they feel so ill that they don’t feel like eating, especially in the morning. Morning sickness does happen and it not only affects your desire to eat, it can also affect your teeth as well. If you throw up often, your stomach acids can break down your tooth enamel. After throwing up

the first thing you might want to do is reach for your toothbrush, but don’t! It is best to wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth. Instead, rinse your mouth with water first, then rinse again with a fluoride mouth wash. The fluoride helps to re-mineralize your enamel. Cleaning your teeth daily is important. Hormones may cause your gums to swell and bleed more than they used to. Keep up with your daily routine of brush-

ing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day. You may want to rinse with salt water. If your gums should get very sore and you do not want to brush, you should see your dentist or dental hygienist.

Ryan Oliver and the Cookers in concert Former lakecity resident Ryan Oliver, with his band The Cookers, is returning to the lakecity for two concerts this week. The Cookers will be in concert at the Studio Theatre Friday, April 12 and Saturday April 13. Tickets are available at the Guitar Seller and the Open Book. The Cookers was formed in 2009 in an effort for the musicians to share their passion for swinging, traditional jazz music with Canadian audiences and, along the way, developed a catalogue of original music and a unique Canadian sound, states the group’s biography. The band’s freshman album, The Cookers, Volume 1, was warmly received by Canada’s jazz community, and

Ryan Oliver even had the honour of being featured on Katie Malloch’s final radio episode on CBC as one of her favourite albums of the year. Juno-nominated, and now Toronto based saxophonist Oliver has

taught, recorded and performed with various musicians and groups throughout the world. After graduation in Williams Lake he honed his craft on the West Coast before moving to Amsterdam, Toronto and then New York. Since returning to Toronto, Oliver has maintained a busy schedule as one of the city’s in demand saxophonists. Oliver’s latest album STRIVE, features jazz legend Victor Lewis on drums and records nine of Oliver’s contemporary original compositions. Oliver’s debut recording, Convergence, was selected by several CODA Magazine critics as one of the top 10 Canadian jazz releases of 2007. He maintains a

weekly Sunday night residency at Joe Mamas with Organic, a quartet that features Canadian great Bernie Senensky on Hammond B3 organ. Their debut recording, Organic, Live was released in the winter of 2012. Oliver has toured India, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada with legendary Canadian saxophone group the Shuffle Demons and is also a featured sideman in Tonight at Noon, an octet that plays the music of Charles Mingus. Oliver is also a member of Juno award winning blues/rock performer Derek Miller’s group. Oliver is featured in the horn section on Derek Miller’s recording, Derek Miller and Double Trouble,

featuring Stevie Ray Vaughn’s heralded rhythm section Double Trouble and musical icon Willie Nelson. The recording was nominated for a Juno in 2011. Jazz education is also an important part of Oliver’s professional life. A saxophone instructor at York University’s jazz program, he has also been a featured clinician at Malaspina College, Western University, the University of Windsor and high schools throughout New York, New Jersey, Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario. Alongside all of his efforts as a musician and educator, Oliver is also the artistic director for the Harbord St. Jazz Festival, an annual festival that celebrates the pairing of fine dining

Alzheimer’s most feared disease in B.C. A new survey says that the majority of British Columbians are concerned about being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The poll, conducted jointly by Insights West and the Alzheimer Society of B.C., found that some 61 per cent of people living here – including Williams Lake residents – are concerned about getting the brain degenerative disease.

And 39 per cent of residents know someone with Alzheimer’s. According to the study, it is the third most feared disease among B.C. residents after cancer (74 per cent) and heart disease (69 per cent). A more encouraging finding from the survey is that 52 per cent of respondents believe there will be a cure found in the next 10 years. An early diagnosis

means earlier access to support and medical treatments to help manage the symptoms of the disease. Earlier intervention can also allow families to plan for and manage the challenges on the dementia journey with quality of life as a priority.

Stay smart, stay safe, stay connected At any given moment, an estimated 11 percent of drivers are talking on the phone, making this the most common secondary task people perform while driving. Mobile phones are an essential way most people stay connected on the go, but mobile phone users must be responsible for staying smart when they use their phones while driving. Many traffic accidents today can be attributed to distracted driving, including talking on the phone. Driving while talking or texting is not only dangerous, it is also illegal and carries a fine in BC. Here are three tips for smart drivers: • Always use smart, defensive practices when driving. Every driver should assess their unique driving situation and decide when it’s OK to talk on the phone. • Always use a Bluetooth enabled hands-free device or car system when you talk and drive, so you can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. • Never manually text or e-mail on your phone while you drive. Bluetooth technology helps you drive smart, drive safe Bluetooth enabled wireless headsets and hands-free car systems have always helped drivers focus on the road.

What to do with a cracked windshield The scenario is all too common. Drivers are traveling down the road, and a pebble gets kicked up and hits into their windshield, causing a small chip to appear. Slowly but surely that chip turns into a spreading, snaking crack that only gets worse with each bump and pothole. Having a broken windshield is not only unsightly and a big inconvenience, it can also be illegal. That’s because the crack reduces the efficacy of the window safety composition, meaning it may shatter in the event of an impact accident and cause extensive injuries. The crack also may impede a driver’s ability to see the road clearly. It’s important to note that liability car insurance typically doesn’t cover a cracked windshield that occurs in a collision. Instead, drivers hoping to be covered need to have collision insurance on their vehicle. However, not all windshields crack in a car accident. Many are damaged in nonaccident related circumstances, whether this be a tree branch that falls on the car or a rock kicked up from the roadway. It’s important to read an insurance policy thoroughly to be sure that nonaccident related cracks to the windshield will be covered.

Even if the damage is covered, it may not be worth the expense of paying the insurance deductible and filing a claim, which may end up raising your rate in the long run. Many small nicks can be repaired easily with a kit purchased from an automotive supply store. Inexpensive and user-friendly, the instructions guide users through the process of sealing the crack and preventing it from spreading. If the crack is beyond the scope of a do-it-yourself fix, a windshield repair service that specializes in this type of work might be necessary. These companies use products that harden quickly and reglaze the windshield so that the crack may not even be noticeable afterward. Upon inspection, a mechanic or a windshield replacement company may determine that the crack is not something that can be mended. The entire windshield will have to be replaced at this point. In some cases the windshield can be removed and replaced in the same day. While there is no way to prevent a cracked windshield entirely, there are certain ways to reduce the risk. This includes avoiding running over any debris on the road that can be kicked back at the windshield.

Spring... ON


Why so many potholes in Spring? They seem to pop up by magic almost overnight. Spring temperatures warm the cold pavement, melting and evaporating any ice. This creates air pockets that can eventually cause the pavement to break up. A winter of heavy snow or rain and several freeze-thaw cycles can mean a big pothole season ahead! Most drivers are familiar with the unexpected jolt associated with running over a pothole. This can result in some costly repairs including the potential of damage to a vehicle’s suspension components.

As well, hitting even one especially severe pothole could alter the alignment of a wheel and cause uneven tire wear. Uneven tire wear means the tire will need to be replaced sooner than necessary. Car Care Canada offers these tips to help protect vehicles against a pothole encounter:

• Maintain full air pressure in all tires to provide as much cushion as possible between the pothole and the rim of the tire. • Watch for potholes by leaving plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Before swerving around a pothole, be sure to

check surrounding traffic. • If you can’t avoid a pothole -- at least slow down! Hitting a pothole at high speed increases the chance of damage to tires, wheels, shocks, struts or springs. • When driving over a pothole-filled road, hold the steering wheel firmly to avoid losing control. • Do not brake when directly over a pothole. Applying the brakes causes the car’s weight to shift to the front of the wheel and can increase damage from the impact. • A broken shock or strut from a pothole encounter could alter the

steering and handling of a vehicle and create dangers when driving at high speeds or in tight corners. Broken suspension components should be repaired immediately.

conditioning once the vehicle is cool. • Use the re-circulation button. This requires less energy since the air conditioning system isn’t cooling the warm air from outside. • Let the air flow. Use ventilation on the highway; open your windows and sunroof while driving in the city. • Adjust the thermostat settings to be comfortable, not cold. • Park out of direct sunlight. • When returning to a hot car, open the windows for a few minutes before turning on the air conditioning. • Be a smart buyer. Look for an air conditioning system with an “econo” mode or smart controls. More fuel consumption tips are available online at

Vehicle air conditioning impacts fuel efficiency When it comes to controlling the costs associated with driving your vehicle, did you know that when in use, air conditioning systems consume significant amounts of fuel? It’s a fact to keep in mind as the warmer seasons approach. When the air conditioning is on, fuel consumption can actually increase by up to 20 per cent, according to Natural Resources Canada. While consumption depends on the vehicle’s interior size, outdoor temperature, and other operating conditions, if you drive a fuel-efficient automobile, the impact of air conditioning use is usually quite noticeable. A few simple conservation measures can help drivers reduce fuel use: • Turn off the air

Starting April 1, a new drug pricing regulation will reduce the price of generic drugs to 25 per cent of the brand name price, from the current rate of 35 per cent of the brand name price. The price will further drop to 20 per cent in April 2014. “Thanks to this regulation, B.C. families will pay less at the till when they fill their prescriptions. These price reductions will also save money for the provincial government money that can be used instead to help enhance patient care in B.C.’s health system,” said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid. The drug price regulation is the first in a

suite of regulations required to fully implement the Pharmaceutical Services Act, which came into force in May 2012. The act shifts B.C.’s PharmaCare program from relying on government policy, to being protected by legislation. The regulation allows the Minister of Health to regulate the price of prescription drugs. Generic drugs have the same quality, strength, purity and stability as their brand name equivalents and are made to the same strict standards. “Reducing the price of generic drugs benefits our clients by making prescription drugs more affordable for families and employer insurance plans,” said Kenneth G. Martin, president and CEO of Pacific Blue Cross.

Examples of savings as a result of the drug price regulation: • The current cost, not including standard pharmacy fees, of a 30day prescription of the cholesterol-lowering drug Crestor is $44. The price of the generic version of this drug today

is 35 per cent of the brand name price, or about $15.40. • On April 1, the price of the generic drug will be reduced to 25 per cent of the brand name price, or $11. On April 1 2014, the price of the generic drug will be further reduced to 20 per cent, or $8.80. • The anti-platelet drug Plavix currently costs $85.20 for a typical 30- day prescription, not including standard pharmacy fees. Currently, the generic version costs 35 per cent of that amount, or about $29.20. • On April 1, the price of the generic version drops to 25 per cent of the brand name, $21.30. A year later, the price of the generic drug will be reduced to about $17.

Now we, the MPRA, believe that seniors can have the drugs needed at a cost seniors can afford.” BC PharmaCare helps British Columbians with the cost of eligible prescription drugs and designated medical supplies.

Tick time again, take precautions ALWAYS WORKING FOR YOU! An early start to warm spring weather means many of us are getting out and enjoying the great outdoors. One of the most important ways to reduce the risk of tick illnesses such as, bite infection, tick paralysis or Lyme Disease, is to do a skin check after being outdoors, reports Interior Health. Walking on cleared trails when in tall grass

or wooded areas. Wearing a hat, long sleeves, pants, and lightcoloured clothing. Tucking pant legs into socks or boots. Applying insect repellent containing DEET on uncovered skin. Carefully checking clothing and scalp when leaving an area where ticks may live. To reduce ticks from entering your home and yard, try these steps:

Keep your lawn short and remove any fallen leaves and weeds. Keep a buffer area such as wood-chip or gravel border between your lawn and wooded areas or stone walls. Any play equipment or play zones should be kept away from wooded areas. Trim tree branches to allow more sunlight in your yard. Keep wood piles and bird feeders away from

the house. If you find a tick on yourself, a family member, or pet, wear gloves and gently remove it. Be careful not to crush the tick as this could cause it to inject its stomach contents into your skin. If you find a tick, check very carefully for others. Use needle-nose tweezers to gently grasp the tick close to the skin. Without squeezing, pull the tick straight out.

After clean the area with soap and water. If you have concerns or need assistance removing a tick, contact your doctor or visit a walk-in medical clinic. More information is available at: http:// healthfiles/hfile01.stm BCCDC Lyme Disease information: http://www. LymeDisease/default. htm

Peaceful Easy Feeling As a child of the 70’s, the soundtrack of my memories contains a large number of Eagles songs. Last weekend, while listening to a friend of mine speak, I found myself humming the Eagles 1976 hit “Peaceful Easy Feeling.” It might strike you as odd that a person would be humming an Eagles song in church. Well consider the source and just consider me odd. Trust me, you wouldn’t be the first. My friend mentioned that many times well meaning Christians incorrectly say, “The safest place to be is at the centre of God’s will.” The intended sentiment is that if I am doing the will of God I will not experience any conflict, disappointment, adversity, insults or injury. I will be safe in the wonderful peaceful bubble of God’s hands. However, is this sentiment true? Does life become blissful when we serve God? Do we revel in that “Peaceful Easy Feeling” from dawn to dusk? I believe that being in the will of God can be the most difficult and uncomfortable place to be. If we read the Bible, we see that God allowed His servants to go through many difficult and horribly uncomfortable situations. Noah spent 120 years building the Ark and being touted as the “local nut job.” Paul was in prison many

PARSONS PEN BY REVEREND BUBBA times, beaten horribly, bitten by a poisonous snake, shipwrecked and in the end, beheaded. Jesus, the very son of God, suffered the tortuous death of crucifixion. What happened to that “Peaceful Easy Feeling?” The confusion lies at our expectations of what a life of following Jesus is to look like. Christians are not called to comfort but to combat. We are not called to cowardice but to courage. We are not called to peace and prosperity but, to giving ourselves for the sake of others. I do not follow Jesus to be safe, but to be dangerous; an agent of change against the forces that desire to enslave mankind in darkness, sin, greed, hate and pain.

If we follow God can we expect PEACE? Absolutely! Ok, now you are thinking that I slipped another mental cog. Haven’t I just said that we can not expect our circumstances to always be peaceful when we serve God faithfully? Let me clarify. Peace is not the absence of conflict. Peace is not a fuzzy feeling we get because life is going smoothly. True peace is a trust that God is with you in the storms of life and that He is bigger than any problem we will face. A famous picture entitled PEACE shows a small bird that is nestled securely in a small opening of a cliff wall. In the picture, the lightening is flashing in the storm blackened sky. Wind is blowing trees and driving rain. Yet, the small bird is safe and secure in its nest in the rock while the world around it is full of chaos. This provides us with a visual example of Biblical peace. True peace is the ability to still have serenity in the midst of challenge and adversity. This is what we call faith. We have faith that God is great enough to use us even in the most trying situations to change this world for good. He can use my discomfort to grow me as a person and to stretch my character. My “Peaceful Easy Feeling” is rooted in my faith in the loving Creator God.

Reaching out to address Autism in B.C. April is Autism Awareness Month in B.C. an opportunity to recognize children, youth and families living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by helping to raise awareness and increase understanding of this complex and prevalent neurological disorder. ASD now occurs in approximately one out of every 88 births, states a Ministry of Children and Families press release. Though its causes are not yet fully understood, ASD affects brain development and is characterized by impairments in communication, social interaction and restrictive and repetitive behaviours. With early treatment, children with ASD can see dramatic improvements in language and cognitive abilities to help them achieve more meaningful communication with family and friends. The province is helping increase knowledge and improve service capacity throughout B.C.

through the Autism Outreach Program. The program focuses on improving access to services in rural and remote communities and enhancing training for B.C. service providers. Since the program was launched in response to public feedback in 2011, more than 1,250 B.C. parents, social workers and other autism service providers have received high-quality autism intervention training to better support their own children or the families they serve. Autism organizations and community agencies host awareness events around the province throughout the month.

COMFORTABLE GRACE OF A TWO STOREY The comfortable grace of this two-storey, threebedroom family home, is obvious from the exterior, and continues indoors with a layout that puts the main living areas on the second floor. The compact foyer on the ground floor, with a handy coat closet on the right, leads to an L-shaped flight of stairs, with a useful storage area tucked beneath them. To the right is a den, well situated for a home office. Beyond the den, which features a window with an extra-wide sill, is the laundry room.  At the back of the ground floor, the basement is unfinished, with a roughed-in three-piece bathroom, ready for a time when the need for space increases.  Upstairs, the great room boasts generous bayed-out windows that overlook the front garden, as well as a fireplace. The great room flows seamlessly into the dining area, where another bayed-out window, this one overlooking the side garden, provides space for a table large enough for guests, as well as family.  The compact kitchen is open to the dining room, and its U-shaped counter configuration will save the cook many steps. Both kitchen and dining room enjoy access to a spacious sundeck, with stairs down to the back garden.  The master suite overlooks the back garden for privacy. The walk-through closet, with plenty of space for a couple’s clothing, leads into the three-piece en suite. 

The second and third bedrooms share a large threepiece bath, which includes a linen cupboard near the entrance. Exterior finishes include stucco, shingles and painted trim on the gables. Unpainted wooden trim sets off the partly mullioned windows, and stone-based pilasters flank the front door and two-car garage.  This home measures 25 feet wide by 50 feet deep, for a total of 2,027 square feet.   Plans for design 2-3-731 are available for $758 (set of 5), $856 (set of 8) and $917 for a super set of 10.
