Wade Davis opens World Heritage Year events Keith McNeill
One of the world’s best know anthropologists and ethnobotanists was in Clearwater last week to help kick off this season’s events in Wells Gray World Heritage Year. A capacity crowd of over 260 people turned out to listen to a presentation by Davis in the Pit at Clearwater Secondary School on Thursday evening, May 30. Originally from Vancouver, Davis now makes his home in the mountains near Dease Lake in northwest B.C. (when he isn’t travelling the world in his role as explorer in residence with National Geographic Society). A well-known environmental spokesperson, he formerly made his living as a logger and a big game guide. He doesn’t seem to be too impressed with some environmental groups, such as Greenpeace, or with mining companies, such as Imperial Metals, which proposes to construct a major copper mine near his home. Davis had his first encounter with Greenpeace when he was working in a hunting camp in Spatsizi Provincial Park. The environmental group helicoptered in and attempted to shut the camp down. When he objected that some of the things they were broadcasting weren’t true, he was told it was only public perception that mattered. More recently he has been battling Imperial Metals and its proposed Red Chris mine. The tailings pond for the mine would be upstream from the lake his home draws its drinking water from. Imperial Metals is the same company that is developing a proposed lead-zinc mine at Ruddock Creek near Tum Tum Lake east of Avola. Ian Smith, the former CEO of Yellowhead Mining, had engineered the Red Chris project before starting with Yellowhead.

“Who has the right to talk for the land?” Davis asked. “Greenpeace and Imperial Metals assume they do. The problem is, there is no measure of the cost to the land or to the commons for their decisions.” The people who live on the land should have first say on what happens to it, he felt. “Fidelity to the land is all that counts,” he said. Quoting another environmentalist, Davis told the audience, “The most important thing you can do for the environment is to stay put.” Davis calls the area where he lives, and where the Red Chris mine would be located, the Sacred Headwaters, because it is the source of three major salmon rivers: the Stikine, the Nass and the Skeena. Creating an open pit mine in such an area would be the equivalent of drilling for oil in the Sistine Chapel, he said. He illustrated his talk with a slideshow of spectacular photographs of the area. Davis holds degrees in anthropology and biology and received his PhD in ethnobotany from Harvard University. He spent over three years in the Amazon and Andes as a plant explorer, living among 15 indigenous groups in eight Latin American nations while making some 6,000 botanical collections. His work later took him to Haiti to investigate folk preparations implicated in the creation of zombies, an assignment that led to his writing The Serpent and the Rainbow (1986), an international best seller later released as a motion picture. He recently accepted an offer by University of British Columbia to become a tenured professor there. Nearly 100 attended a second presentation and ribbon-cutting by Davis on Friday morning at Upper Clearwater Hall. For more about how that turned out, see page A8 inside.
Clearwater to host two doctors looking to re-locate Keith McNeill
Two doctors will visit Clearwater during the next two months to check out the community as possible places to re-locate, according to Mayor John Harwood.
“It’s a good thing. It’s the first time we’ve had people looking for a while,” he said. The first, who is coming from the UK, is expected to arrive in about a week and will stay several days. He will
be travelling with his wife and daughter. The second will arrive in early July and is expected to just stay overnight. He is from South Africa. Other good news for the local medical situa-
tion includes one doctor who has agreed to a three-month locum (temporary placement) in Clearwater. More locums are needed, Harwood said. He particularly would like to see more Kamloops
doctors help out evenings and weekends. With the departure of Dr. Mathilde Stuart in mid-May Clearwater is now down to just one permanent physician, Dr. John Soles. Fears have been

B.C. government rejects Enbridge pipeline plan Tom Fletcher, Black Press The B.C. government has recommended rejection of the Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline project its final written submission to the federal environmental panel. Environment Minister Terry Lake announced the decision Friday, two weeks after an election where pipeline politics played a key role. He said the B.C. government isn’t satisfied with the company’s plans for spill control on the twin pipeline proposed to run from northern Alberta to a tanker port at Kitimat. “Northern Gateway has said that they would provide effective spill response in all cases,” Lake said. “However, they have presented little evidence as to how they will respond.” Lake said any heavy oil proposal would be subject to the B.C. government’s five conditions, which include spill prevention and response, aboriginal participation and Serious Issues require a share of oil export revenues Serious Lawyers for B.C.

1-888-374-3161 Jim McCreight is on location in the Interior Savings Insurance office every Wednesday.
Holder said Friday the province’s position is not the end of the discussion. “The five conditions cannot be fully met until the end of the Joint Review Panel process,” Holder said. “We are working hard to meet the conditions and earn the confidence of the government and the people of B.C.” Ministry staff evaluated the 192 conditions proposed by the Joint Review Panel, the federal agency that will make a recommendation for permits to Ottawa next fall. The B.C. government and Northern Gateway officials will give their final oral arguments to the panel when hearings resume in Terrace on June 17. Enbridge has argued that its submissions to the federal panel included 7,000 pages of technical reports and nine separate witness panels have answered every environmental question put to it. The panel has conducted 69 days of cross-examination of company officials by B.C. and other representatives. Lake said the B.C. government is not opposed to heavy oil pipeline projects in general, such as the pending application to twin the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta to port and refinery facilities in Burnaby and Washington state.

Doctor search partnerships producing results Submitted The Clearwater Health and Professional Working Group was formed in 2008 to address shortages within the health care profession and to take initial steps to protect the health care needs of the community. At the time, Clearwater was experiencing a severe shortages for locums, who provide interim relief for our local doctors. By implementing new strategies and creating a focused plan, the committee was able to quickly establish Clearwater as a desirable location for locums. Since 2008, there have been a number of changes within health care recruitment and

delivery models. The current goals of the committee revolve around attracting professionals to the valley on a permanent basis. With new initiatives and partnerships being formed with Interior Health Authority (IHA) and with financial incentives from the B.C. government, a rejuvenated effort for focused recruitment to Clearwater has begun. In its 2012 and 2013 budget, District of Clearwater council has allocated funds to attract and retain health care professionals. The first phase of the new program includes participation in conferences for rural health care. Councillor Shelley Sim, as the council appointee, has attended several of these. In April, she attended a three-day international conference in Victoria, which proved to be an excellent follow up to the Whistler conference that she attended in 2012. The bright Love Where You Live marketing materials were well received and saw Clearwater in the spotlight. Sim will also attend the Family Medicine Forum in Vancouver this coming November, which sees over 4,500 family physicians, family medicine teachers, researchers, residents, medical students, nurses, and nurse practitioners as participants. Communities from all over Canada and the world attend these conferences with hopes of making connections with health care professionals. Australia and New Zealand often send three separate groups to ensure a strong and dynamic presence. Health care shortages are a worldwide issue. In partnership with IHA, the Physician Recruitment Committee addresses multiple recruitment issues. New physicians and the ongoing recruitment of qualified candidates are sourced through referrals from Health
Match BC and Interior Health, as well as personal contacts made at conferences and events. Additionally, IHA provides national advertising in medical journals. The partnerships are producing results. In the next while, Clearwater will see visits from two different doctors looking to relocate to British Columbia and plans are in place to showcase the Clearwater area. The committee is confident that their efforts will soon welcome new professionals to the North Thompson Valley. Recruitment is not only a local issue but needs support by a provincial action plan. With this in mind, Councillor Sim was supported by mayor and council in her bid to run as a director-at-large for SILGA (Southern Interior Local Government Association) in May. She was elected and her primary goal is to bring the issues of rural recruitment and retention to the provincial forum. Government and communities need to look 25 years down the road and to create a plan to identify long term needs and ensure action is taken to fulfill those needs. Individual communities should not bear the burden on their own. By being involved at SILGA, councillor Sim hopes to collectively engage other local communities in the process to ensure that the B.C. government heeds the immediate needs and concerns. Rural communities need to be on par with larger communities. Recruitment should be addressed as a provincial issue, not only as a regional or community issue. The financial playing field needs to be equalized and all of B.C. should be assured of positive action to address physician and health care shortages.

Bear View Development gives update on shopping center proposal Times Staff The proponents of the proposed Bear View shopping center are still working on the project, according to a recent update. “There have been a few hurdles here and there, but nothing that has stopped this development from going forward,” they said. Bear View Development is currently working with the District of Clearwater as well as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure on setting the criteria for a traffic impact study, they report Once the District completes its comprehensive frontage/backage roads system plan, BVD will to use this plan as a guideline for its own traffic impact study. The frontage/backage roads plan is being developed by consultants Opus International Inc. When the Bear View’s traffic impact study is completed, MoTI and DOC will use this information to determine where and how access would be granted for the proposed development. Highway access would be a critical part of any application to amend the official community plan (OCP) or change the zoning. So once this information is available, BVD can continue to apply to re-zone the proposed BVD property. “Bear View Development would like to assure the community of Clearwater and Wells
Gray Country that we will keep working with the District of Clearwater and other major partners to allow this project to continually move forward,” said the proponents. “A project of this calibre does take time as there are many areas that need to be addressed (i.e. commercial highway access, re-zoning, civic services, etc.).” “Bear View Development would like to ask the community to continue their tremendous support towards this project and to hang on throughout the next few weeks of the bureaucratic process,” they added. For further information on the current status of this proposed development, or if there are any questions, the proponents direct people to the Bear View Development Facebook page. Letters of support can be found at the On Call office in Blackpool, the Wells Gray Inn front desk as well as a few other local businesses. “Please take the time to sign one of these letters if you would like to see Bear View Development come to life and open up our community to many travellers who would have normally just passed right through without a stop in our community,” they asked. The proposed Bear View shopping center would be located next to Highway 5 about 1.5 km east of the junction with the road to Wells Gray Park.
Study shows mountain caribou are not affected by helicopter skiing activity Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing A study has shown that, contrary to what sceptics think, helicopter skiing has little to no impact on the endangered mountain caribou. The study entitled, Assessing the Impacts of Heli-Skiing on the Behaviour and Spatial Distribution of Mountain Caribou, conducted by Thompson Rivers University(TRU) graduate student Katharina Huebel, was a joint venture between Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing, TRU and the province’s Ministry of Environment. The findings of the study show that mountain caribou do not abandon areas that are frequently used for
helicopter skiing, and that they were not hurt or frightened by the activity. The mountain caribou is listed as an endangered species in Canada, with herds only remaining in British Columbia and Northern Idaho in the United States. Mike Wiegele, owner of Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing, said that the results have proven what they have known for a long time. “We wanted to be sure that our skiing activities did not interfere with or disrupt the mountain caribou, and the conclusion is clear,” said Wiegele. “We have recorded every sighting of the mountain caribou within our ski area since 1996. We gladly made this data available to Katharina in order for her study to

be conducted with the most accurate information. “Our best management practices were implemented over 20 years ago. We enforce closing areas to skiing upon detection of caribou to avoid disturbances, and it appears that these practices are successful,” said Wiegele. Government studies show that mountain caribou numbers are down by 30 per cent in Wells Grey Provincial Park, which borders the tenure for Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing. “The decrease in numbers can be linked to the loss of old-
growth forests, which caribou rely on for food, causing the caribou to abandon areas,” said Wiegele. The study was presented at the Canada West Ski Areas Association (CWSAA) Spring Conference in Kelowna on Tuesday, May 7. “The presentation was attended, with a number of government agencies represented, as well as helicopter and snowcat skiing operators and representatives from the snowmobile community. We were very pleased with the valuable input and discussions that followed. Continued on page A6

Enbridge pipeline isn’t dead yet
Street lines should be painted earlier in year Editor, The Times:
I am writing this letter with concern for the safety of the travelling public. In 2011 we had faded and missing lines on our streets and roads. They were painted July 15. In 2012 they didn't get painted until late August. Many times I have been stopped at the stop sign at the Wells Gray Hotel intersection and had a tourist pull up beside me and stop in the oncoming lane. If there is someone across the highway wanting to come across they can't because someone is in their lane. No one can move until the vehicle beside me leaves. Usually it's
something big like a motorhome. The tourist season started in May. I think the lines should have been painted for the tourists by then. The people living here know where they're supposed to be driving. Why not paint the lines right after they sweep the streets? I think it's a waste of money to wait until August – the tourist season is winding down and the snow comes right after that and we don't see the lines. Can anyone give an update on when we can expect the lines to be painted on ALL of our streets and roads for 2013? Is our goal still tourism?
C. Mickey Clearwater, B.C.
VICTORIA – One of Premier Christy Clark’s first tasks of the new term will be to resume trade talks with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Several daunting tasks await. Clark must repair relations with Alberta Premier Alison Redford after B.C.’s theatrics over oil pipelines before the election, and prepare for the results of a federal environmental review of the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal in the fall. Some people were surprised on Friday when the B.C. government released its final written submission to the federal environmental review panel on Northern Gateway. It was widely interpreted as B.C.’s outright rejection of the project, but it’s not as simple as that. Clark and B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake signalled several times before the election that they were not getting the answers they wanted from Enbridge. But they stuck to the principle that the hearings must be completed. The NDP repeated for months that the B.C. Liberal government had forfeited its own review and handed jurisdiction over the environmental assessment to Ottawa. In fact, a pipeline that runs across two provinces is by definition a matter of federal jurisdiction. B.C. could have held its own parallel set of hearings, which was the NDP’s stated preference, but in no circumstance does the province have a veto. And both the B.C. Liberal government and Enbridge were careful to leave the door open for further talks. A closer reading of their comments shows that the key difference at this stage is one of timing. “The panel must determine if it is appropriate to grant a certificate for the project as currently proposed on the basis of a promise to do more study and planning after the certificate is granted,” Lake said. “Our government does not believe that a certificate should be granted before these important questions are answered.” According to Enbridge executive Janet Holder, those important questions can’t all be

answered until the hearings are over. The company maintains that every river crossing and spill response plan can’t be done in detail during the two-year hearings. B.C.’s final submission runs to nearly 100 pages. It goes into detail on the inconsistencies and unanswered questions on such vital topics as whether diluted bitumen can sink in water. In short, the province argues that it can sink if the oil is in fresh water, or if it is exposed to weathering so lighter fractions evaporate, or if it is mixed with sediments that increase its density. These are pertinent conditions if heavy oil were to leak into a river in springtime, when water runs fast and cold and brown with sediment. Then there are the obstacles presented by responding to a spill in remote wilderness and heavy snow. Given both provincial and aboriginal opposition in B.C., the Enbridge pipeline is unlikely to be imposed, and last week Conservative cabinet minister James Moore clearly ruled that out. The B.C. government has consistently maintained that the current project does not meet Clark’s often-repeated five conditions, including the vaguely defined “fair share” of revenues, and Moore said the federal government agrees with those conditions. The B.C. government has to face some other uncomfortable realities as well. If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years? Does the government take a stand against new pipelines, and then watch as rail cars full of heavy oil cross those same rivers? No permit is required for that, and in fact there are more hazardous materials than oil moving by rail and road across the province today. – Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Many adjectives can be used to describe our provincial politics; perplexing, alarming and even deceitful have fit in the past. But what about federal politics, and more precisely, future federal rulers of our broad nation? An editorial in a Kamloops newspaper supports my concerns about the national future of Canada under the leadership of Justin Trudeau at the helm of the Liberal Party. Title of the article is
"Trudeau plays tired game". The editorial states that Justin Trudeau argued that Canada should keep the Senate – because it gives Quebec a bigger advantage over B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan. Of the 75 seats in the Senate, only 12 are held by Alberta and B.C. Quebec now holds 24 seats with a near-equal population to that of the two western provinces combined. For young Trudeau to take such a stand we can only
assume that, like his father Pierre Elliot, he is showing strong favouritism for Quebec over the west. That does not indicate to me that he would have a national and cohesive interest in governing the country should he ever become prime minister. It is hoped that the younger generation of western voters will not be overwhelmed by Justin's charismatic charm.

Documentary promotes salmon conservation Editor, The Times:
Salmon Confidential is a documentary that is much being discussed in the coffee shops and amongst friends. It is a film about the lives of salmon, their value to us as co-inhabitants of the world, their current sate of affairs and perhaps some hints on what we can do toward making their lives a little easier. Many are the stories about the creation of the salmon by the Creator and what will happen to the people and the land should this valuable natural resource no longer exist. We realized during out conversations that
there are many North Thompson Valley residents who have not watched this film – not had an opportunity to debate the issues that surround the film. So, some of us have gotten together and organized to rent the Elks Hall in Clearwater on Wednesday, June 12 at 7 p.m. We invite you to join us in screening this film, and if you have the time and want to stay a bit later – to join in a conversation with others on what you think of this documentary.

Dear Mr. Ramblerton, (May I call you Jim?) Your letters (“Global warming is science fiction,” May 30 issue) are always fun to read, even if they are sometimes not too edifying. A belief is a firmly held conviction. The idea that something is true may be based on faith or on scientific evidence. Your scorn for those who favour anthropogenic global warming suggests that you "believe" that they made it all up, like when L. Ron Hubbard, a former science fiction writer, concocted Scientology. I haven't read the books you mentioned, but I'm presuming that you have and that they either lacked footnotes and references to the scientific literature, or you reviewed those
articles yourself and found their investigative techniques and statistical analyses wanting in some fashion. The first reports about the association between carbon dioxide and a more rapid rise in global temperatures were published around 1975 and were given little notice. Since then there has been a worldwide effort to observe factors that may be contributing to the phenomenon. Attribution groups, such as the Lawrence Livermore investigators, seek to delineate which forces are most responsible. Also, Oxford University's research group listened to you, and has looked at the interplay of manmade emissions, solar irradiance and volcanic aerosols.
Their conclusions suggest that the sun plays third fiddle, volcanoes come second, but anthropogenesis is the lead violin. That is the current consensus among most researchers. What makes them real scientists is the willingness to accept new evidence, even if it means rethinking an issue and believing something that contradicts their previous conclusions. Unfortunately, so far all the good science
points to the conclusion that over the last 50 years we are, in large part, doing it to ourselves. As far as extinction events, there are people who study paleoclimatology, paleoecology, geology (including ice cores) and the fossil record and are constantly trying to improve human understanding of what went before. Who knows? Maybe the Yellowstone super volcano will blow its top

did not dampen the spirits of 17 children and 22 juniors and adults taking part in the Sunshine Valley Fire Department bikea-thon. First adult to reach the finish line in Little Fort was Marvin Ritchie. Money raised was for a cement floor in a utility building.
YEARS AGO: Friends and relatives gathered to celebrate Max and Charlotte Miller’s 50th wedding anniversary. Married in Lacombe, Alberta, they lived on the Circle 7 Ranch near Birch Island from 1958 until 1969, when they sold the main part of the ranch, and built a subdivision across the highway. About $25,000 was being spent to upgrade the North Thompson Sportsplex curling rink. The project should make the ice “very keen,” accord-

The first annual Wells Gray Mountain Challenge mountain bike race was to be held along the Loppet trail in Wells Gray Park in mid-July. Organizer Frank Ritcey stressed that it was to be a family affair.

two males Jan. 30. His body was found by a hiker west of Little Fort on Valentine’s Day. Police need more pieces to positively identify airplane wreckage that had been found by a timber cruiser near Tum Tum Lake two weeks earlier. A hitchhiker was charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, and robbery following an attack on a 77 year-old Vernon motorist. The hitchhiker, who had been picked up in Jasper, attacked his host with a hunting knife at a rest stop near Blue River. The older man was subsequently let out of his camper near Barriere. Police arrested the suspect in Kelowna.
Slocan-Vavenby’s sawmill and planer were to shut down for the first two weeks of August, affecting about 130 workers. Causes were low prices and an over-supply of inventory, said area manager Steve Pelton. Clearwater Secondary’s Jeremy Pelton came first in high jump at the B.C. High School Track and Field Championships. He won the event despite wearing a cast for a broken thumb. Mo Bual came eighth in shot-put at the event.
About 80 per cent of those who attended were mountain bikers, estimated Casey Macaulay, one of the organizers.
YEARS AGO: About 35 people attended the first meeting of a new biking club in Clearwater.
Clearwater's mayor and council voted to write Mines Minister Kevin Krueger to voice their strong opposition to lifting the moratorium on uranium mining in the province. The vote was in response to recent resolutions passed by the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce that called for an end to the moratorium. Clearwater and District Hospice Society reported a successful year of operation at their its annual general meeting. The society had 20 trained volunteers, had begun providing hospice services, and was in the process of establishing a lending facility for its clients.

A good network is really just a circle of friends. It’s a two-way street of helpful relationships. Remember 3 things: in every social situation you’re in, make sure people leave knowing who you are, what service/skills you provide, and how to get hold of you. Karmic payoff. You help others, who will help you. Everyone likes people who are helpful – so good things will likely come toward those people.

A spokesperson for Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the Clearwater fisheries office was to close permanently sometime during the next two years. “Larger, consolidated offices will provide better overall results,” he said. About 45 kids participated in a Bike Rodeo put on by Clearwater RCMP and Victims Services at the Sportsplex. Of these, 31 took part in a ChildFind BC fingerprint clinic. Yellowhead Community Services received $256,000 from the federal government for its Community Connections for Women's Safety project. Cathy McLeod, M.P. for KamloopsThompson-Cariboo, announced the funding.
More work still needed for Caribou recovery
Continued from page A3 Unfortunately, it was noted that the government has not properly conducted predator management operations, or funded new recovery projects as promised. Only $500,000 has been spent on these projects, when $2 million is needed,” said Wiegele. “This study is not the end of it. More work and collaboration is needed between helicopter and snowcat operators and the government to protect this animal. We will continue to work with the ministry, and train our pilots and guides of awareness procedures such as flying over an area before skiing it, use alternate ski areas if wildlife is sighted, and to maintain a minimum distance of 500 meters from the Caribou,” said Wiegele.

Drunk driver, vehicle impounded On Thursday, May 16, an officer on patrol was told that a driver was having trouble maintaining his driving lane. The officer stopped, turned around and located the vehicle. The driver showed signs of impairment and provided two breath samples, both displaying a “Fail” reading. The driver’s vehicle was impounded for 90 days and his license taken away. Another drunk driver, vehicle impounded On May 22, Clearwater Detachment was notified of a driver southbound from Blue River and believed to be be intoxicated. The officer on duty made a patrol and located the vehicle. The driver appeared to be coming down from a night of drinking and provided a breath sample that displayed a “Warn” reading. His vehicle was impounded for three days and his license was taken away. Pulling the survey stakes On May 19, officers learned that a number of the survey stakes for the roundabout project had been removed. The matter is still under investigation.
When officers arrived in the area, they observed a male and identified themselves. The male ran off through the bushes and police followed. The man continued to run and led officers to an encampment. For safety reasons, the huts and lean-to’s were searched. Three firearms were found along with a long machete. The man never did reveal himself. The firearms were seized out of public safety as they had been improperly stored.

1-800-222-TIPS Clearwater RCMP Report No doubt there has been strong opinions voiced through newspapers and in the coffee shops, however, resorting to mischief and sabotage is an inappropriate response. Matters related to mischief will be investigated and those responsible will be held accountable. Firearms seizure In a joint effort between the Forestry Compliance office and the RCMP, officers attended the area around Adams River on May 29 to enforce provisions of the Land Act. The visit was in response to a person suspected of squatting on Crown land.
Cutting cedar boughs As officers were returning from the Adams Lake area, they came across a vehicle parked and loaded with cedar boughs. After further investigation with the people on scene, it was learned that they were cutting the boughs without a license and as a result they were issued a violation ticket. This serves as a friendly reminder of the requirement for a permit to remove forest products from Crown land. The process is quite easy, but often disregarded. In this case, the cutting was made at an extra and unintended cost.
Awareness Ride teaches to pass slow and wide Vera Walker The first annual Horse Awareness Ride and Walk was held on June 1 – also the beginning of B.C. Horse Week. The purpose behind this event was to educate motor vehicle drivers and future drivers about the proper way to approach a horse and rider (slow), passing (wide) and leaving (slowly and quietly). Horses are flight animals, like deer. When frightened they run, sometimes right into traffic. Compare this fear with when a person says they “see red” and don’t remember their actions – usually dangerous and irrational. Take time to save time! By following the instructions mentioned above, accidents are preventable. Having a 1,000 lb “hood ornament” will cause damage and even death to either party and perhaps another vehicle. Eysia McClennon was the driving force behind the Wells Gray Riders Associationhosted event. Approximately 20 horse and rider teams, a half dozen walkers with dogs, plus one baby and stroller took part. A pilot car led the way and bringing up the rear was RCMP Cst Tyson Bruns.

People looking for an alternative to DEET as an insect repellant might look for products containing icaridin.

Examples of brands containing this include Deep Woods and Avon. Looking for a good source of calcium in food? Try sardines. Two ounces of this little fish provides 240mg of calcium because you are eating the fine bones of the fish. Sardines also contain significant amounts of vitamins D and B-12 and omega-3 fatty acids. Expiry dates on medication have a little leeway. They don’t lose all their potency on the day of expiration. But there’s one medication you want to be sure is “in date” and that is your EpiPen. The EpiPen is kept on hand by people with very serious allergies and can save lives. If you have an EpiPen, check the date. If it’s close to expiration, get a new one. If you have any questions about the EpiPen or other medications used to treat allergies, talk to our pharmacists. We’d be happy to share our knowledge.

Ethnobotanist and anthropologist Wade Davis spoke twice last week to officially start this season’s events in Wells Gray World Heritage Year. The first time was at Clearwater Secondary School on Thursday evening (see story on page one). The second was in Upper Clearwater Hall on Friday morning. During his Upper Clearwater presentation, Davis talked about his experiences while writing “Into the Silence: Mallory, the Great War, and the Conquest of Everest.” One of the people he wrote about was a Canadian, Oliver

Wheeler, who accompanied George Mallory on an early Everest expeditions. Wheeler later became Surveyor General of India. Davis visited Oliver Wheeler’s son, John, who lived just a few blocks from where he grew up in West Vancouver. While there he was astounded to learn that John Wheeler had two of his father’s
journals from the Everest expeditions. Until then the only known records were Mallory’s. “I was breathless,” said Davis, “but I was too Canadian to ask if I could borrow them.” As he was walking out the door at the end of the interview, John Wheeler handed him the journals without being asked. “I think you’re going to want these,” he said. Davis kept them for 12 years while he wrote the book, and the son never asked for them during that time. Following his talk, Davis helped Upper Clearwater naturalist Trevor Goward officially start two treasure hunts being held as part of Wells Gray World Heritage Year. To do this the pair read out the legend of Harkayee, a story
written by Goward based on a mysterious being mentioned in the memoirs of the late Charlie Shook, a former Wells Gray Park ranger. Details of the story, which includes clues to the treasure hunts, should be available on the Wells Gray World Heritage website soon. Pennell pledges money Tim Pennell, Thompson Nicola Regional District director for Wells Gray Country (Area A), had a couple of announcements regarding support for Wells Gray World Heritage Year. On Friday at CSS he announced that the regional district was giving $3,000 to the golden skull treasure hunts. “I’m sure it will help bring more recognition to the park,” he said.
The following morning at the Upper Clearwater Hall, Pennell announced $5,000 from Area A to help fund an application for GeoPark status for Wells Gray Park. Such status would be a step toward the UNESCO World Heritage Status being sought by the Wells Gray World Heritage Year organizers, he said. It also would be more affordable and doable. ThompsonOkanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) is contributing $10,000 towards the GeoPark application, he said. Thompson Rivers University dean of science Tom Dickinson also spoke at both the CSS and the Upper Clearwater events. For the past 20 years classes have been making use of the former Upper Clearwater schoolhouse as an education and research center. The center has seen over 10,000 user days and more than 1,500 individual users during that time. The TRU Wilderness Center to be constructed this year will provide accommodation and teaching space for 20 students. Construction should begin within two weeks, with completion by next fall.

Participants take turns adding a square with pictures or designs to the quilt, then give an explanation or tell a story of how it relates to one or more other squares already on the quilt. Once the quilt is full, they give it a shake and start over. It was quite interesting to see how enthusiastic and involved the youngsters became. Deckert’s game was just one of the attractions at the Clearwater Farmers Market on Saturday morning, June 1.

“Whether you agree or disagree, it’s kind of out of our hands at this point. We’ll move forward and follow the rules.” TSN media man Bob McKenzie took a stance on Twitter, saying he agrees with the decision to introduce bodychecking at the bantam level, citing empirical data that shows contact at younger ages leads to higher rates of injury and concussions.

School district and BC Trucking Association partner to offer training to youth interested in professional driving careers in 2014 KAMLOOPS — School District 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) and BC Trucking Association (BCTA) announced on Thursday, last week they will partner to develop and deliver a Professional Driver Training Program through NorKam Secondary School’s new Trades Centre of Excellence, with enrolment of students in Grade 10 targeted for September 2014. The program, the first of its kind for high school students in B.C., will join three other technical trades training programs at the NorKam Trades Centre of Excellence, which is now in the design phase following the signing of a formal project agreement with the provincial government in March 2013. “Thanks to the vision of the Board of Education and senior administration, students with the interest and aptitude to pursue a career in trucking will have a head start in high school, mastering a curriculum endorsed by the industry, and they’ll be job ready upon graduation” says Greg Howard, district principal, Trades N’ Transitions. Louise Yako, president and CEO, BCTA, says that this partnership couldn’t have come at a better time for the trucking industry “Trucking companies across Canada are facing a shortage of from 25,000 to 30,000 profes-
sional drivers by 2020, largely due to retirements in the industry, “ she said. “BCTA has been aware of the shortage for some time, but the challenge was to find a way to engage youth and promote their interest and entry in the industry. We’re extremely excited to be taking part in this program.” BCTA will work in cooperation with School District 73 to develop a training curriculum suitable for youth. This would consist of introductory modules for students in Grades 10 and 11, followed by a full semester of driver training in Grade 12, including training “in-cab” using a driving simulator. BCTA was instrumental in the development and pilot test of an industrysupported Professional (Truck) Driver Training Program, completed in 2010 with the BC Industry Training Authority, which may serve as the model for the NorKam program. “Increased opportunities for all types of trades training are important for B.C. students,” says Howard. “By offering high-school level Professional Truck Driver Training at the Trades Centre of Excellence, we’re making training more accessible and affordable for those who want a career in trucking. We’re also meeting the needs of BC’s industry at the same time. It’s a terrific opportunity for both.”

Love the truth as it is and avoid what is false Against a false friend Psalm 55; part 3 As for me, I will cry to God and the Lord will save me. Evening, morning or at noon I will cry and lament, He will deliver my soul in peace in the attack against me; for those who fight me are many, but he hears my voice. God will hear and will humble them, the eternal judge; for they will not amend their ways. They have no fear of God. Entrust your cares to the Lord and he will support you. He will never allow the just man to stumble.
Think on These Things By Father Don O'Reilly
St. James Catholic Church
O Lord, I will trust in you. Psalm prayer Lord Jesus, you were rejected by your people, betrayed by the kiss of a friend,
and deserted by your disciples. Give us the confidence that you had in the Father and our salvation will be assured. Speaking in a commentary on Job, Pope St. Gregory the Great, tells us, “On the other hand, it is the wisdom of the just never to pretend anything for show, to love the truth as it is and to avoid what is false, to do what is right without
reward and to be more willing to put up with evil that to perpetrate it, not to seek revenge for wrong, and to consider as gain any insult for truth’s sake.” Let the light of your face shine on me, O Lord; ... teach me your paths to holiness, O God. May our Heavenly Father bless you and your families. God bless.

Lice are not nice — so school district crafts a policy Dale Bass Kamloops This Week School administrators have had angry parents on the phone complaining about head lice. It’s not always because they have had to treat their child because an instance has been found in the school. It’s because they have used the special shampoo, spent night after night with the tiny comb looking for eggs and nits, washed all the bedding, maybe even gave their child a buzzcut and sent them back to school — only to have another lice notice sent home. That’s the reason the Kamloops-Thompson school district has developed a policy on the creepy, microscopic bugs that can make an adult immediately start to scratch just hearing the word “lice.” The policy went to the board of education on Monday, May 27, for approval.
It is designed to give principals the authority to send a child home and not allow the child back in class until the family has dealt with the lice issue.
We have a few instances of it every year and when it's an issue, it's a big issue. Terry -Sullivan
” “It’s usually just one family,” Sullivan said, noting that when the problem repeats itself, schools need to be able to intervene and ensure the issue is dealt with. The change is required, Sullivan said, because lice is no longer considered a health issue, so the Interior Health Authority is not involved. “We have our own resources we will use that
are familiar with it and can deal with home intervention. We’re just looking at how to do it,” Sullivan said. “We have a few instances of it every year and, when it’s an issue, it’s a big issue.” The policy is designed to ensure student identity is protected and, if the family cannot buy treatment supplies, the school will do what it can to assist. If there are chronic cases, a meeting will be held between the family, school and public health to develop a plan. In extreme cases, a program for a student to learn at home can be created until the lice problem is resolved. The problem is restricted to elementary schools, Sullivan said. Once a student gets into high school, odds are they are more concerned with personal grooming and that mitigates the odds of lice finding a hair shaft on which to latch.
Composting with worms Mel Andersen (l) shows Sharon Neufeld and Peggy Neufeld how a worm composter works. Andersen gave a workshop on composting with worms at Forest House in Clearwater on Saturday afternoon, June 1. Just over a dozen people took part. Worms convert food waste into an ideal soil amendment, he said. The workshop was sponsored by Thompson-Nicola Regional District. Photo by Keith McNeill
