Support sought on timber supply Industry encourages opening up land-use plan Carole Rooney Free Press

The potential for opening up the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land Use Plan (CCLUP) to mitigate mid-term timber supply shortages appears to be gaining momentum. Cariboo Land Use Strategy Committee (CLUSC) project leader Keith Dufresne made a presentation on timber-supply issues at the June 11 District of 100 Mile House council’s committee of the whole meeting. Mayor Mitch Campsall and Councillors Dave Mingo, Bill Hadden, Ralph Fossum and Spence Henderson were joined at the meeting by representatives from

Cadet review a corps coup Army awards presented in military fashion

Carole rooney Free Press

The 41st Annual Ceremonial Review of the 2887 Rocky Mountain Rangers (RMR) Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps (RCAAC) took place at the Horse Lake Road training centre on June 8. The review was accompanied by an awards ceremony and a buffet dinner for the dignitaries, cadets and guests. The reviewing officer was Commander W.S. (Stan) Bates of Esquimalt who has been in the Canadian Forces for 30 years. As the Commanding Officer Regional Cadet Support, he reviewed the cadets in their performance of various drills and procedures. Former 2887 RMR Commanding Officer Kevin Seal says the review performance was well done by the cadets. “The Parade Commander, Warrant Officer Justin Guerrero, did a fine job leading the cadets in their preparation and on the parade itself. “The cadets worked hard all year. They all deserved awards, so this shows the level that those who got awards actually achieved.”

The 2887 Rocky Mountain Rangers (RMR) Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps did well in the 41st Annual Ceremonial Review at the Horse Lake Road training centre on June 8. The cadets performed various drills and procedures under the scrutiny of the province’s reviewing officer.

Proud parents and family friends were there to see the drills and the awards handed out. The Royal Canadian Legion #260-100 Mile House sponsored the event,

term is now complete, Seal handed over his commanding officer post to former DCO Training Captain Dale Bachmier at the ceremony. “Capt. Bachmier is a very capable officer with lots of experience who also brings a lot of enthusiasm to the cadet program, both working with the young people here and at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre [VACSTC],” explains Seal. “All the cadets from 100 Mile House who can go to camp this summer are going to VACSTC.” Seal adds he will continue on with the 2887 RMR in some capacity, likely as a training officer. Bachmier says his role has come full circle, beginning when he was a cadet three decades ago. This is when he developed a life-long desire to someday return to work with the cadet corps, the new CO explains. “I retired after 23 years in the Canadian Forces and started working with these cadets when I came up here seven years ago.” Bachmier adds the mili-

tary has “been my life” since he was 12 years old. “I have come to what my dream has been, to be a CO of the corps.” The 2013 RMR awards were presented as follows: • Top Green Star – LanceCpl.

Safeway sold to Canadian company

Escott Kitchen & Tops 1st Anniversary Sale

Sobeys to acquire all 213 American-owned stores Carole Rooney Free Press

Sobeys has entered into an agreement with Safeway Inc. to purchase virtually all of Canada Safeway’s assets for $5.8 billion in an all-cash transaction. The transaction brings the store ownership back into Canadian hands and positions Sobeys, a retail chain owned by Empire Co. Ltd. based in Nova Scotia, as a leading grocer in Western Canada. It also solidifies Sobeys’ number 2 position nationally, with expected annual revenue of $24 billion. Sobeys president and CEO Marc Poulin says the company is not yet sure if it will re-brand the Safeway stores. “We just completed the acquisition. We will do proper marketing and research to determine

what will be the course on the bannering side.” These brands across Canada currently include Sobeys, Foodland, FreshCo and Thrifty Foods, as well as IGA stores outside of British Columbia. The transaction is anticipated to close this fall, following the customary Competition Bureau review period. Andrew Walker, Sobeys vice-president communications and corporate affairs, says the fate of the current Safeway stores is now up to that federal agency. “The competition bureau will look and see if there are any that we need to sell. [But] we made this $5.8-billion acquisition because we want to keep as many stores as we can, because of great employees and a great team at Canada Safeway, and great stores.”

The approximately 175 employees in the three Safeway stores across the Cariboo can expect the same compensation from Sobeys as they would have seen under their recently ratified union contract. United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) Local 1518 communications representative Kim Novak says the deal is still in the “very early stages,” but the employer has committed in writing to honouring the agreement. While legislation to that effect exists under the Successor Law for purchasing unionized companies, she explains in this case, there won’t be any need for a dispute. “The new employer purchasing Safeway is going to be taking on all of the provisions

under the new collective agreement that we just negotiated.” That 10-year contract will expire in 2023, but Novak notes it has a clause for re-opening salary and benefit negotiations five years down the road. “We are going to do everything to represent our members with the highest level of representation [and] keep everyone informed as more information becomes available.” Local Safeway employees and others can visit the website at w w w. u fc w 1 5 1 8 . c om and follows links to Featured, Latest News to get ongoing updates on the union status, she adds. Canada Safeway public affairs did not respond to media requests for comment. Safeway Inc. president and CEO Robert

Edwards, who is based out of California, says the transaction has been approved by the boards of directors of both companies. “We are pleased to enter into this agreement with Sobeys in order to realize the higher multiples attributed to Canadian supermarket companies. “The substantial cash proceeds from this transaction will allow us to create value for Safeway stakeholders and contribute to the growth of the ongoing business.” Sobeys states the corporate strategies of both companies align with complementary retail offerings, for “a great cultural fit” and an “exceptional store network in sought-after locations” that brings along $1.8 billion in real estate holdings.

School board budget presented School District #27 (SD27) revealed its budget for the upcoming school year at its board meeting held at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School in 100 Mile House on May 28. SD27 secretary-treasurer Bonnie Roller Routley presented the details, but noted the budget is not official until the board releases it on June 25. Routley said the SD27 has been using surplus funds to balance the budget for the past two or three years, but the board is determined not to continue this practice. This decision reflects numerous public comments collected during last year’s Initial Options Report (IOR) consultations, she added. “But, we also want to make sure we are maintaining the integrity of the district infrastructure and of all the educational pro-

grams....” Routley outlined what some of the challenges were in balancing the budget. This past school year saw $1.8 million spent from surplus funds, but she noted going forward, SD27 will continue to be in funding protection with a drop of 1.5 per cent each year. “As reported in the IOR in the fall of 2012, the school district had a structural deficit of $1.8 million. Additionally,

SD27 would lose revenue from the ministry [due to funding protection] in 2013/14 of 1.5 per cent – about $782,000.” This leaves SD27 with a budget challenge of $2.6 million, Routley said. She noted the significant savings identified in the comprehensive IOR plan, which closed four schools and reconfigured others, results in cost reductions of $1.242 million. “So, to balance the

2013/14 budget, an additional $1.4 million in savings is required.” Routley added SD27 is “very close” to finding the remaining money, some of which will be made up from salary decreases resulting from the reconfigurations and closures. Budgeted expenses covered in the presentation were $37 million in salaries and another $9 million in benefits for the upcoming year. Continued on 6

District of 100 Mile House mayor, council and staff heard West Fraser representative Dan Rollert, right, explain why a letter of support for re-evaluating the local land-use plan is needed. He spoke during a June 11 Cariboo Land Use Strategy Committee presentation on its new timber-supply action plan by project leader Keith Dufresne.

Opening land-use plans promoted From 1

“It’s a real ‘hot potato’ actually, when you start looking at mitigating timber supply, you are looking at [old growth management areas and mule deer winter ranges]. “All these things that we’ve looked at before and said, ‘we want to preserve, or hold off on these areas for these regions’. Now, we’re saying, ‘well, maybe we can look at that in a different light now, given that our timber supply is [declining]’. “Maybe we can look at this a little bit closer and say, ‘are these values as important as we thought they were? Is there a possibility to

change things a bit, and mitigate the fall down that we’ll have in timber supply’?” The provincial government has an open process for these timber supply consultations, and Rollert noted that if these questions are not asked, that could be taken as a lack of interest and then nothing will be done to improve the supply. There will likely be “a lot of interest” from various groups, including environmentalists and First Nations, he added. The forest company representative said the issue is “very important” for both West Fraser and the District of 100 Mile House. “The key to this thing is we need your support

to push the government to look at this more closely.” Dufresne stressed the importance of council making its wishes known now. “If it’s too one-sided, then that tough decision is going to end up being challenged down the road a ways.” Campsall asked how long the subsequent science-based review might take. Dufresne said the review starts this fall, and he and Stewart both feel any subsequent actions might make the March 2014 timeline, but complicated issues may drag it this much longer. While he hopes there is a lot of engagement, Dufresne added this

may also mean more delays if stakeholders don’t jump on board quickly. “We’re thinking this might be a couple-ofyears process.” The 100 Mile House Forest District management unit is “one of the shortest” timelines between now and when the supply shortage will hit, he noted. Coun. Fossum asked Mayor Campsall when a motion should be made to demonstrate to Dufresne and West Fraser that “we are going to do something.” Campsall replied he wasn’t prepared to do that yet. “We’ve got to wait. We will see what Rodger’s [Stewart] presentation is; what should be our

British Columbia tourism marketing goes regional

Horses & Heroes 2013 3rd Annual Private Treaty Horse Sale Fundraiser for the BC SPCA

Destination BC gives more bang for bucks

Carole Rooney Free Press

Destination British Columbia (Destination BC) is preparing to launch its new Tourism Marketing Committee, with up to three representatives from each of the six tourism regions in the province. In a landmark move, tourism leaders have pursued since Tourism BC was dissolved in 2009, Destination BC was created in November, with the province’s tourism budget and staff transferred on April 1. With the helm back in the hands of the industry, this Provincial Destination Marketing Organization (PDMO) will now control some significant funding ($48.87 million in 2013). The committee is being formed to provide greater accountability to tourism stakeholders. Each Regional Destination Marketing Organization (RDMO) has nominated several people in their respective regions to sit on the committee, as well as appointing

region helps avoid redundancy in the backgrounds and fields of each to form a diverse committee with a wide range of experience. The five individuals put forward by the CCCTA are “all good people,” he adds. A lot of groundwork had been done on the candidate selection criteria, which Corbett notes really helped in determining eligibility. “One of the biggest challenges of the future marketing committee will be to bring about greater integration of community, provincial and regional tourism marketing efforts.” The committee will also include the Destination BC CEO (still being recruited) and two board members. Another much-lauded benefit of the industry-led Destination BC is its funding mechanism will be converted to a portion of annual sales tax, to allow the PDMO to grow its budget based on superior tourism marketing.

Routley said includes the $1.242 million from the IOR. Other improvements in the financial picture include adding $30,000 from reducing off-season school bus fleet insurance to storage-only, $20,000 from miscellaneous general revenue, and an increased investment income of $35,000 from investing its reserves with the province, rather than privately. At the end of the day, the overall budget revenue and expenses leaves a small, $8,643 difference, which she explained is the difference between Capital Asset and Capital Funding amortizations calculated by the ministry. “Although it makes our budget appear out of balance, this total is


“This is about 86-87 per cent of the overall budget ... so [we have] very little control when it comes to finding money that doesn’t affect staffing.” “The main changes to the budget are a decrease of $1.6 million in salaries, due generally to enrolment decline, and the economies we’ve made with all the reconfigurations in the district.” The savings of $521,000 were found in the service-and-supply budget, with reduced utilities and general supplies budgets providing about $200,000 each, plus $120,000 from services, including travel, professional development and other areas. “At this stage, we are

about $300,000 short on the budget side which means we must increase our revenue.” The district will be increasing its revenue with surplus from the past several years of benefit usage, she explained, which includes extended health and dental services, by withdrawing $300,000 from this fund. While the district also had a small decrease of $60,000 in the area of employee benefits, she added that included increases to Teachers Pension Plan contributions and Medical Services Plan (MSP). “The fund remains in great standing and will continue to provide a great benefit package to our employees.” These savings total $2.181 million, which

Following are the council highlights from the June 11 District of 100 Mile House council meeting: Annual report The 2012 Annual Report and Financial Statements were received and approved by council. Mayor Mitch Campsall recognized the hard work staff had put into the report and expressed appreciation of its use of layman’s terms. Chief administration officer Roy Scott

They were filled with fond memories they had of Jack and funny stories that portrayed him as a fun-loving man who was always available to lend a helping hand.

Opening land-use plans


Accounting should be public


enator Mike Duffy certainly isn’t the first Ottawa politician to get some unwanted scrutiny from RCMP investigators. But unless politicians of all political stripes get serious about accountability soon, he likely won’t be the last either. It’s disturbing to witness the speed with which Duffy and fellow senators Patrick Brazeau, Mac Harb, and Pamela Wallin have been thrown under the bus, while senators and MPs move to sweep the broader question of accountability under the carpet. Under enormous pressure, the Senate board of internal economy met in public, for the first time ever, and tightened up its rules relating to expense claims. But the 10 rule changes only served to reveal how ridiculously loose the old rules had been. Senators will now need to submit a receipt if they want to be

or the remainder of 2013 and going forward, folks in the Interior of British Columbia are going to be reading and hearing a lot about the mid-term timber supply. Last August, the B.C. Liberal government sent the Special Committee on Timber Supply around the Interior to hear what people had to say about mitigating the hardships from a quickly dwindling timber supply from forests, devastated by the voracious mountain pine beetle and wildfires. Three months later the committee compiled the information, and Beyond the Beetle: A Mid-term Timber Supply Action Plan was trotted out to the public. It became clear there was a good chance land-use plans (LUPs) would have to be opened up to provide fibre to save the industry, while we wait 50 years or so for trees to grow to the stage of being harvestable again. This past April, the province released its preliminary assessment of the three key land values: old growth management areas, mule deer winter ranges and visual quality areas. It also set out a framework for a science-based review of sensitive timber areas and a study on how opening LUPs would affect the key land values. The Cariboo Land Use Strategy Committee (CLUSC), made up of local forest company representatives, was formed to develop an industry perspective on mitigation options for the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land Use Plan (CCLUP). CLUSC project leader Keith Desfresne appeared before 100 Mile House council last week to present some information. West Fraser South Cariboo forest manager Dan Rollert also spoke to the council members and encouraged them to write a letter of support for re-evaluating the LUPs. However, the goal of opening up LUPs for increased harvesting is not an area we want to go stumbling blindly into, as their primary development purpose was to protect all values of the forests and not just those of the harvestable trees. That said, many things have changed since the CCLUP was put in place in October 1994. The science is better now and the need is definitely greater now. While the mule deer populations are much larger now, mountain caribou are very much endangered. We also have to consider the ecosystems that weren’t even considered in 1994 and make sure they are protected. It must be a balancing act if we are to open LUPs and it should be done carefully. If they are opened up for harvesting, many people believe it should with the mindset of maintaining the industry, but not increasing the annual allowable cut. We will be seeing more on this as time rolls along, and we must pay attention.

constituency offices, nor did he audit professional services contracts awarded by individual MPs. In fact the AG examined only 264 transactions – less than one for each of Canada’s 308 MPs – out of the 85,000 transactions processed in that entire fiscal year. Canadians have no proof that MPs and senators are clean when it comes to their expenses. We rely on leaks to the media to find out how our tax dollars are being spent. Until MPs and Senators are subject to the Access to Information Act and the Auditor General has unfettered access to their secret financial records, more will cheat and more will be caught and quickly thrown under the bus. And it’s getting a tad crowded under that bus. Gregory Thomas is the federal director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

100 Mile Free Press Wednesday, June 19, 2013



Correspondent credited with pothole repairs To the editor: Hats off to 108 Mile Ranch correspondent Reg Berrington for writing about the potholes in the 108. The day after the article appeared in the June 5 Free Press the potholes were filled in (or most of them)! I hope that if, and when, this appears in the Free Press, it will be duly acted upon. My husband and I are very

concerned about the lack of road markings in the 108 and also on Highway 97. Do you wonder why there are so many accidents on the 108 hill and elsewhere? If so, just look at the road – hardly a road marking in sight. Highway 97 is a main trucking route for goodness sake. A few years ago, I believe whoever is responsible for the road markings started using “environ-

mentally safe” paint. It sounds great, I applaud them, but the only thing is the paint only lasts through the summer. After the winter snows, ploughing, heavy truck use, etc., the paint disappears. We, too, like to try to be environmentally friendly in our home, but this is dangerous. It would be far better to use paint that will stay (like the good old days), than use whatever they are using now.

Stark should step down as Green Party leader To the editor: Imagine my dismay when, as reported by Robert Shaw in the June 5 Times Colonist, Jane Sterk, Green Party of BC leader, seemingly endorsed Christy Clark’s government, by saying “her party won’t run a candidate because the premier deserves to be in the legislature.” This goes against all of the principles of the Green Party, as it is an endorsement not just for Christy, but for “fracking” in British Columbia; for building the Site C Power Project and for a number of new pipelines. In fact, she has chosen, by her statement, to back a government that has historically proven to be environmentally unfriendly time and time again. For this reason, I would ask Jane to step down as leader, turn over the reins to someone else, while trying her best to recant this disastrously mistaken endorsement. After all, a premier is only truly a pre-


mier when elected. Christy could be forced to step down as leader of the BC Liberal Party should she lose the upcoming byelection. We need to insure the B.C. Liberals do, indeed, answer to the people of this province and not just the party. Therefore, I would ask the Green Party to fully support NDP candidate Carole Gordon in the Kelowna-West riding. As a school teacher, Carole may be a good choice for education critic for the Opposition. The people of the Kelowna-West riding should give her a chance to be the representative they need, one who is actually from the riding. She would be a representative who knows and cares about the constituents’ issues more than about just winning a seat in any old riding. Alan MacKinnon Nanaimo

Please change the paint and get busy on marking the roads – you won’t have to do it every year if you use the right paint; it will last a lot longer than that. I was in 100 Mile last week and had to cross the road opposite The Royal Bank/Donex. We, as residents, know this is “a crossing,” but it’s hardly visible to non-residents. I was even “tooted” by a driver as I attempted to cross the road.

The same can be said of the two road crossings in front of and close by the Mile 108 Elementary School. I am a pensioner and I worry about the kids using these crossings. Why aren’t the parents raising this alarm? Please use better paint, so that the road markings stay. Jill Llewellyn 108 Mile Ranch

Misinformation questioned The Conservative Party of Canada continues to try and change the channel on the Senate scandal by spreading blatant misinformation about the economy. A recent e-mail from the Conservatives states Canada has added 900,000 new jobs to the economy since June 2009. It’s interesting the Conservatives don’t mention the unemployment rate has only been reduced by 1.4 per cent in that four years. And the use of June 2009 is also suspect because just six months earlier, in January of that year, the unemployment rate was only 0.01 per cent higher than it is today. Research by The

Canadian Labour Congress has found that approximately 75 per cent of the new jobs created in Canada in 2010 and 2011 were filled by temporary foreign workers despite the fact that 1.4 million Canadian residents were unemployed between 2009 and 2011. The misinformation e-mail goes on to state that “...Liberals and NDP want to take our economy down a dangerous path, with higher spending and higher taxes” and “...we’re on track to balance the budget.” The fact is that it was a Liberal government that recorded five consecutive balanced budgets, erased the annual deficit and provided this country with a $13-bil-

lion surplus before the Conservatives took power. Furthermore, it is this Conservative government that has “misplaced” $3.1 billion and is spending hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars on TV ads for government programs that don’t exist. It’s time for the Conservative Party of Canada to stop spreading misleading information, to stop fear-mongering and to start living up to its promises of transparency and accountability.

fter 34 NDP MLAs were sworn in to continue a stretch of opposition that will reach at least 16 years, party leader Adrian Dix took a few questions about his future. The party’s provincial council will meet June 21 to set the terms of reference for a review of the party’s dismal election performance, Dix told reporters. He repeated his performance won’t be spared, and ticked off some conventional wisdom about the NDP campaign. Dix mentioned the alleged lack of “negative” ads, the local campaigns (read candidates), the decreasing reliability of polls, and when pressed, his surprise decision to come out against the proposed twinning of the TransMountain oil pipeline. Like last week’s hysteria over a tiny leak in that pipeline, these are great sound bites for the short attention spans of the modern media. But they don’t explain much. This all-powerful NDP provincial council is a case in point. A glimpse into its inner workings was provided by a summary of an NDP policy development

identical bland lager from identical factories in identical stubby bottles. Interprovincial trade in these stubbies was strictly forbidden, requiring each province to have a big unionized brewery to make uniformly bad beer for the proletariat. This is the power of a monopoly union. And because of it, this was how governments tried to “create jobs.” It’s a bygone era to which many core NDP supporters stubbornly cling. This explains the party’s revival of a “job protection commissioner” for forestry. Which brings us to the proverbial root cause of the B.C. NDP’s woes. Its largest financial donor is the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which donated $1.4 million to the party in the past eight years, nosing out the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Hospital Employees’ Union. Former HEU and BCGEU presidents now sit in the NDP caucus, critics for health and “green” jobs respectively. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com.

the province Cyclist dies on highway


What do you think about the American-held Canada Safeway stores being bought by Sobeys?


KAMLOOPS – The RCMP southeast district traffic services is investigating the death of Richard David Dean McGillivray, who was riding his bicycle just west of Kamloops on Thursday, June 13, at about 6 p.m. The 58-year-old man was on the shoulder of the Trans-Canada Highway heading east when he was clipped by a vehicle. The coroners service is involved in the investigation. Police are looking for witnesses to the incident. People with information can call the traffic-services division at 250-828-3111.

Flag person deliberately bumped

SALMON ARM - A flag person working on the Trans-Canada Highway is bruised and shaken after an angry driver deliberately bumped her with his car on June 5. The driver is now facing charges under the Motor Vehicle Act and police continue to investigate the matter. “It appears the traffic control person had vehicles stopped to allow a dump truck to exit when they noted a male waiting to be waved through was on a cell phone. The male was advised that he would have to get off the cell phone before being allowed to pass,” says Sgt. Carlos Tettolowski, of the Salmon Arm RCMP. Tettowlowski says the male driver then moved forward slowly and bumped the traffic control person with his vehicle. The traffic control person moved back away from the vehicle and the driver again moved forward slowly and bumped the flag person again. The owner of the traffic control firm, Alliance Traffic Group, says the incident is serious but reflects the underlying problem of a lack of respect and common courtesy from drivers towards flaggers. “Our workers put their lives on the line, staring down semis and other vehicles and they are there not to cause people an inconvenience but to help protect their safety and the safety of everyone working or driving in the area,” says John Thuot, an Alliance Traffic Group owner.

If Canadians own the outfit in Canada, instead of Americans where the money goes south, that is a good thing. But, with so many takeovers these days, you never know what will happen.

I think it is a good thing to bring the Safeway corporate ownership back into Canada. It is a good store now, though.

My mom works there, so I hope the local store stays open. Otherwise, it is good to have the stores back under Canadian ownership.

I’m pleased to hear they will honour the union contract. But, I’m always sorry to see more concentration into larger companies. We don’t need more big boxes, we need smaller stores with local food.

Brittle or cracking finger nails is often due to loss of moisture in the nails. A clear nail polish can help reduce moisture loss even for men. Historically, people used to take gelatin capsules for this problem but it doesn’t really work. Gelatin contains protein but it doesn’t contain the two amino acids, lysine and tryptophan, two important building blocks to making protein.

Men’s Cancer Support Group in the South Cariboo!

Some new legislation surrounding people found “not criminally responsible” (NCR) for their actions, including murder and other serious crimes, is moving forward in Parliament. Allan Schoenborn, a man found guilty of firstdegree murder, but not criminally responsible for killing his three children in Merritt five years ago, is a close-to-home example of this ruling. After pleading not guilty to the charges, despite his acknowledgement of slaying his young daughter and two sons in April 2008, his lawyer successfully argued Schoenborn was insane and, therefore, NCR. Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod says the Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act addresses concerns raised by victims of crime with respect to accused persons found NCR on account of mental disorder. “There have been a few, and thankfully rare, cases that have been very horrific in nature. And, certainly in our riding, the Schoenborn case was one that deeply impacted many. “So, this is making some fairly minor changes but creating a designation of ‘not criminally responsible, but high risk’. And with that designation,

Canim Lake Band holds Tree Celebration

CN Railway gifts tree seedlings for reforestation Carole Rooney Free Press

A good turnout of about 60 people joined the Canim Lake Band (CLB) for its Tree Celebration event on May 28. The event was held to recognize and celebrate a financial donation from Canadian National Railways (CN) for the purchase of 30,000 tree seedlings to plant on the band’s forest licence lands.

We are very happy for them that they were able to secure [those trees]....” – Malcolm Sutton

The CN program works in partnership with Tree Canada, a non-profit reforestation organization that takes care of the ground work to make replanting happen. Event organizer Shayla Archie says a buffet lunch was served before a ceremony and in the Eliza Archie Memorial School (EAMS) gym. Then,

Traditional drumming and singing were enjoyed at Canim Lake Band Reserve during its recent Tree Celebration event. It celebrated a donation from Canadian National Railways for the purchase of 30,000 tree seedlings to replant pine beetle tree land harvested on the band’s forest licence.

they went outdoors for a ceremonial tree planting outside the band office to commemorate the event. CLB Chief Mike Archie, several Elders, forester John Kalmokoff, community members, and EAMS students were joined by some special guests. Shayla says the main event began with a welcome by Chief Archie, followed by traditional drummers and dancers. During the speeches, Chief Archie presented a drum to special guest CN Police representative, Const. Mike Stewart, in gratitude and recognition of its generous gift of trees. “Everybody enjoyed the drumming and dancing ceremony inside, and the presentation of the drum,” Shayla notes. Other special guests included Tree Canada B.C. community advisor Christian Walli, Brinkman & Associates (silviculture corporation) CEO Dirk Brinkman, and West

Fraser Timber Co. planning forester Malcolm Sutton. Malcolm, who is based in Williams Lake, says he attended the event because West Fraser was interested in what the band is doing. “We are very happy for them that they were able to secure [those trees].... I understand there were only seven applications approved in the United States and Canada, so it was a pretty big deal.” Kalmokoff adds CN’s program provides trees to community forestry efforts, as part of the corporation’s commitment to leaving a green footprint. “They are supporting the Canim Lake Band forestry ventures and the recovery of the mountain pine beetle epidemic as well. This is all mountain pine beetle logging that they are replanting.” Shayla notes the seedling planting is well underway.

PIGS NEED ROOM TO MOVE! Pigs are intelligent, social animals – they’re at least as smart as dogs, and like their wild relatives, pigs love to explore and "root" around. Confining sow stalls, barren concrete housing and painful procedures are welfare concerns affecting 27 million pigs raised in Canada each year. Help advocate for better animal welfare by adding your voice to the public comment process for the new Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Pigs and taking the pig pledge! Once finalized, the Pig Code will create new minimum standards and guide the purchasing policies of Canada’s biggest food retailers. A draft of the new Pig Code is available for public comment beginning June 1. For the next 60 days, farmers, animal welfare interest groups and citizens are all invited to weigh in on the issues that matter most to them. At minimum, the animal welfare community wants to see a definitive move away from gestation stalls. Pain control and less barren housing for all pigs are also critical to ensure that the food animals in our care are treated as humanely as possible.

Aboriginal Day

a community celebration

Canim Lake Band hosts all-day public event Carole Rooney Free Press

Canim Lake Band is celebrating National Aboriginal Day on June 21, and is welcoming the South Cariboo community to participate. The band is hosting an abundance of cultural activities and displays at Eliza Archie Memorial School. Chief Mike Archie says there is significance to the date selected for National Aboriginal Day, which recognizes Aboriginal culture and heritage. “It more or less lands on a solstice, and in our culture and our values, those are the days that we celebrate and feast. It is important celebrations like this take place, locally and throughout Canada, he adds. “Canim Lake has come a long way to recognize and share in that culture, and our language and traditions, within our community and amongst our children right through to our Elders. “We welcome anybody else who wants to be involved to come out and join us on that day.” Staff member Pam Theodore, who organized much of the event, says the public may feel free to observe, or even participate in events if they wish. “We are trying to preserve our culture and traditions and pass on knowledge about our people. We began doing this a couple of years ago for our community members to enjoy the day and celebrate their culture and traditions.” While bigger urban celebrations happen in Williams Lake and Kamloops, she notes a majority of band members just aren’t able to

travel too far to participate. “Our staff works together to bring to our people a celebration of our culture and traditions in a way that they can celebrate their heritage and participate in cultural activities. “It is a good way for some of our youth to learn about our ways through their Elders.” The June 21 event begins at 9 a.m. with a welcome ceremony by chief and council, and

runs until 5 p.m. Novelty races will take place while the booths display baskets, drums, beadwork, crafts and cradles. At an ethnobotany booth, Elders will share their heritage and knowledge in the traditional uses of many plants, as well as where, when and how to gather them. Other learning booths will demonstrate creative skills in making drums and dream

catchers, as well as provide information on archery, lacrosse and two-ball sports. Hunting, fishing, trapping and traditional sweats, foods and medicines will also be featured. These booths will stay open while traditional drumming and dancing gets underway, followed by a bannock-making contest, and a hotdog lunch provided by 100 Mile House Safeway. In the afternoon, an Amazing REZ Race, a Lahal tournament, and various other games will provide both exercise and entertainment. However, for many band members the day kicks off much earlier with the Traditional Sunrise Sweat at 7 a.m., which Chief Archie explains is a spiritual mainstay in their culture. “There is a lot of cleansing that goes on, spiritually, emotionally and physically, and it is a form of prayer. “It’s dark in there, and it’s like the brain going back into the mother womb, and when you come out you are reborn.” He explains the sunrise timing is meant to greet the day, and the

events of the day. As a leader, the chief adds he is “running here and there” constantly, and really depends on his staff to get the behindthe-scenes work done. “I’m thankful. It does take a community to share it all out. “A lot of hard work goes into planning the event. I take my hat off to my staff.” Theodore was instrumental in that organizing, he says, adding she is a valued community member with a strong work ethic. “Pam [Theodore] is one of those who do up a lot of the schedules, and she is a major part of the organization of

Aboriginal Day, which is important to take place.” Chief Archie notes he often likes to jest that the band is “a matriarchal society,” because the women do so much of the hard work. “We must acknowledge and give thanks to these women. Because,

Aboriginal Day is honouring our way of life, and they are a big part of it.” Aboriginal Day has been a recognized national event since back in 1982, when the Canada’s Constitution Act first recognized and affirmed Aboriginal and treaty rights.

manage day-to-day life independently. In such instances, many younger relatives opt to invite an aging parent or grandparent into their homes, a decision that men and women should not take lightly. Asking an aging relative to move into your home is often a selfless decision rooted in the affection you feel for that person. But there are certain things to consider about your home as well as your finances before inviting an aging relative to move in. Space in the Home When your household is

Seniors often value their privacy, so sharing a room is not an ideal option nor one that your relative is likely to embrace.

For example, seniors whose physical condition is less than ideal might not be able to get up or down stairs easily and might find walking from room to room in a large house to be too physically taxing.

Typically, it's somewhere between 50% & 80% of your income while you were working. The reality is that the majority of people are heading toward a retirement lifestyle that's in keeping with whatever amount of money they have at hand. Your retirement plan should tell you how much you'll have in retirement based on your current savings, how much income that will generate and how long it might last. Remember, there is no magic “enough” amount that you will require in retirement, each individual case will be different; it really depends on your lifestyle needs. At our office, we will prepare a financial plan by carefully considering your needs, goals and dreams in order to implement a well-constructed plan, so that you can have peace of mind about your hard-earned money and financial future.

Medical Facilities Many seniors need to visit medical facilities more frequently than younger men and women. This makes the proximity of your home to doctors' offices a significant factor to consider before inviting an aging relative to move into your home. If your home is far off the beaten path or in an area where access to medical care is sparse, then your loved one's health may be compromised if he or she moves into your home. Discuss your loved one's medical condition and history with them before extending an invitation. If he or she has considerable medical needs and your access to reliable medical facilities is limited, then you might need to move before you can comfortably house an aging relative or explore other housing options for this person.

Personal Finances The cost of caring for an aging relative is considerable. According to the MetLife Mature Market Institute, the average cost of in-home care for a parent who requires a home health aide was slightly less than $22,000 per year in 2011. That's a considerable amount of money, especially for men and women whose own retirement is imminent. Because those costs are so substantial, many men and women care for their aging relatives on their own, which can still prove quite costly over the long haul. Taking on that role might impact income you sorely need, especially if you're forced to scale back your workload so you can better care for an aging relative. Inviting an aging relative to move into your home is a decision that requires careful consideration of a host of factors.

Things to consider as retirement approaches Though many people are delaying retirement, the day will come when they leave their jobs behind and retire. Retirement can be a difficult adjustment that takes some getting used to, but it can also prove an exciting time, especially for those who planned ahead to ensure their retirement was a time to be cherished and not feared. Whether retirement is right around the corner or still a decade or so away, men and women should consider several factors to make sure their retirement years are an enjoyable time that allows them to live life to the fullest. • Income: Just because you're no longer working doesn't mean you won't have income. Government benefits, retirement accounts and perhaps even some light consulting work are just a few ways retirees can earn an income. Though your retirement income will likely pale in comparison to your income as an adult working full-time, estimate what that income will be so you can get at least an idea of how much will be coming in each month. • Monthly expenses: Once you have an idea of what's coming in, estimate how much will be going out each month. Certain costs associated with working, such as the cost of commuting and maintaining a professional wardrobe, can be removed from the ledger. But other expenses, including utilities, car payments and possibly even a mortgage payment, will still need to be made. Once you have an idea of your projected income and your expenses during retirement, you can get to work on a prospective budget to show you what you will

need to live on during retirement. • Employment: Many people now look at retirement as the end of one career and the beginning of another. As retirement draws closer, people might want to consider turning an interest or passion into a second career. Such a move might make retirement more exciting while removing some of the fear of finding enough things to keep the retiree occupied. • Relocation: Where to spend your retirement years is another thing to consider before the big day arrives. Do you, like many retirees, prefer to stay in your own home? Do you want to relocate to a warmer climate or move to another country? Do you want to move closer to your children and grandchildren? Is a retirement village something you might like? Each of these options requires a different financial commitment, so carefully consider where you want to spend your retirement and then consider how you can make those wishes a reality. • Medical costs: Private insurance or governmentsponsored programs likely won’t cover all of your medical cost, which typically increase as a person ages. There are various ways to prepare for those costs that might arise during retirement, and the earlier you start that preparation the less stressful paying for medical care as you age figures to be. Retirement should be an exciting time, especially for those who have spent years planning to ensure it’s as enjoyable as possible.

Some ideas for what to do after retirement Scores of people spend their working days dreaming of the moment they are eligible for retirement. But many people find that once they retire they don’t know what to do to fill their time. Boredom may be a side effect, and some people actually want to go back to work. Much of the focus when planning for retirement concerns finances. All other factors take a backseat. Therefore, there may be emotional issues that arise during retirement, and retirees are not always prepared to deal with such issues. Having a post-retirement plan in place can mean the difference between happiness and having a hard time adjusting, according to experts. Here are some tips that can help anyone ease into the golden years. • Establish goals. After working for years, the idea of setting goals can seem counterintuitive. But goals can have you looking forward to things in the future. Goals also motivate retirees to get up in the morning now that a commute to work isn't part of the daily schedule. • Donate time or money. Giving back

to others can feel good and give retirees some structure. Volunteering can give life some sort of purpose outside of a job. • Start a home-based business. Just because you retire doesn’t mean you have to fully retire. Now may be the opportunity to start a business venture you have always dreamed about, whether that is something handson or just serving as a consultant. • Try new things. Part of goal-setting is to add things to the list you’ve never done before, which can boost feelings of

excitement. A new interest may become a passion. New hobbies, they might prove more rewarding. • Meet with people. Part of what makes work fulfilling is the opportunity to get out of the house and interact with others

who are not family members. It’s easy to fall into a rut when you are not being mentally stimulated by conversation from different people. • Realize it’s alright not to love retirement. It is okay to accept that maybe retirement

Annual horse sale offering more fun activities


“The horse sale format itself remains the same – a ‘parade to the post’ at 1 p.m., so all the horses can be seen. If people want to showcase their horse’s individual talents in the arena, we will help them do that as well. This is not an auction and arrangements are solely between the buyers and sellers.”

Lightning also sparked the third wildfire in the Dog Creek/Alkali Lake west of Williams Lake, but it didn’t take long for fire crews to douse it. While people burning grass fires early in the spring caused most of the early blazes, these were the first lightning-caused fires of the season for the Cariboo. The fire danger rating for the Cariboo is low to moderate; however, the open burning ban remains in place.

Lightning causes small fires

Despite all of the rain the Cariboo has been receiving, there were three small wildfires caused by lightning in the past couple of weeks. After the Cariboo Fire Centre started the season with 42 consecutive human-caused fires, storms rolling through the Cariboo brought lightning that ignited the three wildfires. The first fire was near 141 Mile and Enterprise Road, but suppression crews attacked and extinguished it before it got too large. The second fire was near Muddy Lake near Lac des Roches, but it was knocked down by the rain from the same storm.

Tomlinsons celebrate 63 years Common interest the key to a long happy marriage

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press


f Olga and Roy Tomlinson can single out one thing that has kept them happily married over the past 63 years, they’ll agree it’s been sharing the same interests, and above all, their love of art. The Sulphurous Lake couple was married June 16, 1950, and just celebrated six decades and three years of marriage. Both are artists and met in 1947 as first-year students at Ontario College of Art, when it wasn’t unusual to see the likes of famous artists A.Y. Jackson and Frederick Varley on campus. Olga actually had a chance meeting with Jackson one day while sketching in a park. He looked over her shoulder and commented on a better technique she could use, and then took her sketchbook and drew examples. To this day, Olga says she could kick herself for losing track of that book. Varley also touched her life, mistaking her for someone whose portrait he’d painted, and inviting her to his studio to take any painting of her choice. “I was shy and naive, so I declined,” she says, wishing she now had one of the valuable pieces of art. Olga, who’d grown up in Toronto surrounded by culture, was very talented and her goal was to be an artist by profession. Roy, a farm boy from the village of Baldwin, near Lake Simcoe in Ontario, had been drawing all his life and was basically self-taught.

Roy and Olga Tomlinson say sharing common interests is the key to their happy marriage of 63 years.

“I didn’t really have a goal. In those days, art was a non-way of making a living. It was a thing you did.” His young life was immersed in working in his grandfather’s sawmill, shingle mill and market tulip and daffodil bulb patch. Despite the different backgrounds, they clicked, and by third year college, they were married. Two weeks after fourth year graduation, their first son, Grant, was born. Getting married while still in school resulted in a busy year, but the wedding ceremony was a quiet affair, performed in faroff Windsor. It was arranged by

the couple’s best man and maid of honour who lived in that city, and they were the only ones who attended. Just glad to have the arrangements made and avoid any potential family drama, Olga and Roy happily hopped a Greyhound bus from Toronto to Windsor in the early morning of their wedding day to make it in time. The next day, the newlyweds boarded another bus to St. Catherines where Olga’s large Ukrainian family had arranged a lively reception, steeped in tradition. One of those traditions was for guests to give cash as wedding

gifts and for the groom to personally thank each one with a toast and a shot of whiskey. Roy – a non drinker – found himself fading fast, so cut it back to just a sip at a time so as to make it through the night. It was a great party, with a lot of food, dancing and traditional songs heartily belted out by the old-timers, says Roy. It was fun while it lasted. “It was unusual for me, coming from a Canadian family where after the wedding, you went on the honeymoon, and that was it. From there, it was just hard slugging.” It was a working honeymoon,

as the couple needed summer jobs to make money for school in September. They boarded the bus again, but this time for Calgary, Alta., where they hitch-hiked a ride for the remaining distance to Banff and, hopefully, employment. They had no luck, so they turned to the Brewster bus tour company where Roy had worked previously, and were given jobs on the spot at a resort in Saskatchewan River Crossing. Roy pumped gas and Olga cleaned cabins, but bears were as plentiful as mosquitoes and had to be chased away daily, sometimes with a good whack with a frying pan, says Roy. It was a time when the Rocky Mountains were just developing as a tourist destination, with the road still gravel and lightly travelled. Roy says native people could still be seen wearing their traditional dress at times and some had never met a white person. He was awestruck seeing several natives ride out of the mountains bareback, making their way to the annual Banff Indian Days exhibition. Several headed out a week before the event, stopping at the resort, as they always did, to purchase treats and make pocket money sawing firewood with a cross-cut saw. “We saw a little bit of how the west used to be and met some real characters.” Throughout the summer, Roy says, there was a party in the lodge just about every night, which would often carry on after hours in a teepee outside.

Lithography business provided quality lifestyle From 21

After the summer, they were back in Toronto to finish school, taking up residence in Olga’s mom’s large, rambling house, where several of their school friends also boarded. When schooling was done, the couple moved to Parry Sound where Roy worked for the railway, hitching train cars to steam engines, and they both painted and taught a few art classes. They bought a seven-acre property with a house, lakes and a waterfall where they stayed each summer, but moved to town each winter before their home became snowed in. In 1957, the property was sold for cash and Olga and Roy packed their bags for British Columbia, where they bought a small home on one acre in Coquitlam. Roy continued to work for the railway where he saw the conversion from steam to diesel engines. “We piled 25 cars on a diesel just to see what it could haul. I was impressed. Diesel was the way to go.” Roy renovated and enlarged the home to accommodate the family which now included another son, Craig. Roy also began a building design business and used his artistic talent to visual-

ize and draw plans that would show a client the finished result. He built the business up to include five employees, but let it go in 1974 to move the Cariboo, where the couple had purchased a lot on Sulphurous Lake. Now, quite adept at building, Roy constructed a home on the lake property, complete with studio space where they developed a lithography business. Roy had previous experience in commercial metal plate lithography, but he and Olga were interested in the old process which involved etching the image onto a stone tablet. They realized making a living from selling single paintings was a pipe dream, but if they could produce an original, then make hand-printed copies

using lithography, there was potential to generate a decent income. Getting started was a real learning curve, but they accessed information on the process from every available source. Roy salvaged

a number of precious Bavarian limestone tablets which had been discarded with images still on them, and it was just a matter of resurfacing them and applying their own images.

their lithography business, creating 140 titles and processing thousands of prints. In 2004, Roy pulled his last print upon realizing he no longer had the physical strength for the heavy work involved. Roy has switched his artistic interest to watercolour painting, while Olga keeps busy doing detailed decorative painting on Craig’s hand crafted harpsichords. There’s also time set aside each day to solve a Sudoku puzzle or two and fresh bread is baked weekly. “We’re both healthy in mind and body,” says Olga. “I attribute it to being busy from sunlight to sundown. It’s been a great life, and we’ve enjoyed each other’s company all along.”

Hand-pulled lithographs were basically unheard of, so the couple had to do some hard-core marketing to create interest and generate buyers. It was the dawn of the computer era, and at first, Olga saw its potential for creating their own advertising material, and later, for marketing on the Internet. She taught herself computing and from there, it was learning how the Internet worked and teaching herself the intricacies of web design. It’s a skill she continues to hone, as the web master of their own site, and that of their sons who each are builders of Renaissance musical instruments. Olga and Roy met with great success in

BC/DC band comes to 100 Mile House Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

BC/DC, Canada’s own AC/ DC tribute band is coming to 100 Mile House on July 6, and it’s ready to crank out the same sound and energy that made its model, AC/DC, a timeless legend within the music industry. Hosted by the South Cariboo charity organization, Hun City Hunnies Non Profit Community Improvement Society, the band will perform at South Cariboo Rec. Centre. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and local DJ Maestro Kit will open the show at 7 p.m. with rock ‘n’ roll tunes before BC/ DC takes the stage at 8 p.m. for an evening of unforgettable music and artistry. Hunnies spokesperson Amanda Usher says she’s seen BC/DC perform four times

and has been “blown away” each time. “They bring in huge crowds and have great energy.” She notes this concert will be the Hunnies’ debut event. While BC/DC succeeds in mimicking the Australian hard rock band AC/DC to a tee, it also manages to mock it in a comical way. Lead guitarist MadCow, who impersonates AC/DC’s Angus Young, has occasionally been known to dress as a cow while performing, and it’s not unheard of for the band to claim the music as its own, and scoff at some BC/DC tribute band from Australia. The act is tongue-in-cheek, but the band is rich in musical talent and has wowed audiences in Vancouver, New York, Las Vegas, Whistler, Victoria, Edmonton and Banff. The Hunnies is a group of

six young women who counts among its purposes, benefiting and contributing to local charitable causes, community projects and community events. Profits from the show will be donated to local organizations, such as 100 Mile House Waterpark Society, Canadian Mental Health Association, and future local projects, events and fundraisers. Tickets for the concert are $25 each, or $20 with the donation of a non-perishable food item for the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society. They can be purchased at Andre’s Electronic Experts 100 Mile House and Sight n’ Sound in Williams Lake. People must be 19 year of age an older to attend. Anyone who can volunSubmitted photo teer to work at the concert is AC/DC tribute band BC/DC performs at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on July 6.

Firefighters thank ladies auxiliary with festive dinner DEKA DISTRICT Diana Forster 250 593-2155

Deka Lake and District Volunteer Fire Department (DLDVFD) laid on a sumptuous self-catered beef dinner on June 5, in appreciation of its Ladies Auxiliary (LA) that raises at least $5,000 a year. All of this money, except small amounts used for community purposes, goes to the DLDVFD to help provide extras and keep fire protection taxes down. Firefighters, headed up by co-ordinator, shopper, head-cook and bottle washer Montana Forster, wined and dined their ladies, and perhaps best of all from the ladies’ point of view, did all the dishes and cleanup.

Firefighter Jim Watson created a personal thank-you card for each of the 30-plus ladies; and deputy fire chief Ted Weight thanked the ladies for all their hard work. Red, pink and white roses adorned each table, and the meal ended with dessert cake, inscribed “Thank You Ladies” in their choice of vanilla or chocolate. While the dinner was intended to thank them, the LA members were most appreciative.

Tickets available The LA’s queen-sized raffle quilt is now finished and tickets for it and seven other exciting prizes, go on sale next week. In cream and burgundy, the delightful pattern is Prairie Meadows. Winners will be drawn at the LA’s Fall Dinner on Oct. 26, which, this year, will probably be followed by a dance. AGM slated Mountain Spruce Continued on 25

Rug Hooking Demo IN STORE

From 24

Community Centre Society’s (MSCCS) annual general meeting starts at 11 a.m. on July 13 in the park at the intersection of Mahood Lake and Burgess roads. The meeting is timed so everyone, including our many summer residents, can stop and enjoy a picnic in the park afterwards. They may be lucky enough to see the cow elk that’s been spotted in there, or mama fox with at least three kits. Membership in MSCCS costs $5 a year, and those who send $10 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Money should be mailed to MSCCS, 6335 Mahood Lake Rd., Lone Butte, VOK 1X3. AGM scheduled Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’ Association’s (DLDRA) annual general meeting is on Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. The DLDRA constitution calls for a board of 12 but the association is short of directors, and really appeals to residents to step up and help. The many facilities provided by DLDRA include the bulletin boards, the channel markers, and the street lamps at Blain and Mahood/Burgess. This year, contingent upon ministry approval and assistance, they are looking at providing concrete boat launches at a couple of lake accesses. The DLDRA always caters the DLDVFD’s summer fishing derby,

Derby increases fishing activity LAC DES ROCHES Sharron Woloshyn 250-593-0041

Great fishing is being enjoyed on the shoals at Lac des Roches, as the spring hatches are underway and it seems that many of the fishers are bringing in several good-sized rainbow trout. Some enthusiasts may be taking advantage of the summer-long monthly fishing derby that is underway on several lakes in South Cariboo. The event is sponsored by the Fishing Hwy Tourist Association and encompasses eight lakes and includes three different fish species. Three lakes in our chain – Lac des Roches, Little Lac des Roches and Birch Lake – are included in the derby. While fishing is a very popular pastime and an excellent excuse to get out and enjoy nature, the added challenge of a fishing derby can spark interest among those who might otherwise not be quite so active. Lac des Roches Resort and Opax Mountain Resort Café are both official ticket sellers and weigh-in stations, but details about the fishing derby can be found on the Association’s website at Angry deer Several unprovoked attacks on dogs have been reported on Boultbee Road.

In all cases, the dogs were being walked by their owners and were charged by an irate deer approaching from driveways or grassy fields adjacent to the road. The doe is accompanied by a newborn fawn, which partly explains the aggressive behaviour. It is possible the doe has experienced a violent encounter with a dog or a dog-like animal, which would further explain its obvious angst toward dogs, simply on sight. There is not much that can be done to prevent these surprise incidents; however, keeping the dogs leashed and close to their walker may help. So far, the doe has stopped short when she nears the humans accompanying the dogs. Correction fluid In a previous column, I mentioned that several neighbours were tapping birch trees to make syrup. Apparently no amount of rendering will produce a thick, syrupy consistency but with patience and time, birch sap will produce a sweet watery liquid. Critter watch The bucks are now distinguishable from the does by the short fuzzy nubs which appear on their heads this time of year and are rapidly growing into antlers. Badgers are actively digging out the ground squirrel holes and eliminating these small and annoying rodents. Several different bears are feeding in the area and have been seen in yards. The next birding outing is scheduled for June 24 led by Wendy

Marshall at 250-5932327. Ghastly garbage Late in the afternoon last Monday, a resident made a report to the Road Hazard line. No doubt, aided by birds and animals, garbage left by travellers in plastic bags was strewn from one end of the rest stop to the other, resulting in both a terrible eyesore and a distraction. Many thanks to Interior Roads personnel who responded quickly and had the mess cleaned up. Positive thoughts For those neighbours lamenting the continuous rain, remember there are many upsides. Rain is good for the

garden containers that can dry out fast in the day’s warmth. Rain will wash the pollen off of the edible wild foliage like dandelions and domestic greens like spinach and lettuce. Rain helps keep the dust off the laundry hanging out to dry and on the gravel roads – where it belongs. Rain is needed to initiate the germination of dormant fungus spores growth – many of which produce edible and tasty mushrooms. Rain and the scrubbing effect of some of the hail we have experienced is Mother Nature’s way of scrubbing the slippery remnants of loitering ducks and geese from docks and ramps.

Green Lake residents Brad and Gail Potter are the Classmates and they entertained a large crowd at the annual Watch Lake Fishing Derby on June 2.

All proceeds went to the association for advertisement cost. WLNGLVFDA news The Watch LakeNorth Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary’s (WLNGLVFDA) 17th Annual Bake and Garage Sale was a huge success on May 17. A few days prior to the event, 16 ladies got together at Helen Eagle’s residence to make 146 of their famous apple pies for the bake sale. Sonny Johnson Memorial Fire Hall (Hall #2) was busy with energetic auxiliary members setting up tables, arranging and pricing the garage sale items for the next day. Saturday morning was beautiful and the bargain hunters were at the door early. They were pleased with the selection of items for sale, including a variety of home-baked goods. The barbecue crew was also busy serving breakfast sandwiches and later hamburgers

and hotdogs. Thanks go to Candace Tyler, who organized the barbecue, and crew members Vito Burtini, Lawrence Eagle, Alan Watrich, Donna Grimshaw and the helpers for a job well done. At the end of the day, the WLNGLVFDA made $2,935.47.

PROSTATE CANCER FACT Some foods may protect against prostate cancer. Tomatoes, grapefruit, and watermelon all contain lycopene, a chemical that may lower risk of prostate cancer. Many studies have also suggested a protective effect for vitamins E, selenium, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and bok choy. If you plan on supplementing your diet with any of these nutrients, be sure to talk with your doctor or pharmacist first. For example, high doses of zinc supplements (more than 100 mg daily) may lead to an increased risk of developing the condition.

It is great to see the work crews repairing the potholes in the 108 Mile Ranch roads. Hopefully, we can expect some major roadwork to be done to repair some of the larger areas that are falling apart, but again many thanks to the road crews and traffic control staff. The next problem, of course, is the lack of painted lines used to divide the traffic lanes. Another troublesome area is the disappearance of the pedestrian crossing lines creating a hazardous situation for both pedestrians and drivers. Hopefully, this year’s lines will hang around for more than one season. Bird news The Walker Valley is truly alive with bird song and activity these days. Most bird species have returned this year and are busy in various stages of nesting. Some birds are incu-

bating eggs, some, such as the Mountain bluebirds, are feeding their young, and some, such as robins and redwing blackbirds, will soon have young that will fledge (fly). Recent arrivals (June 6) included the willow flycatchers (with a song that sounds like fitz – bew) and the cedar waxwings. A pair of Sandhill cranes nested in the Walker Valley again this year and although two

eggs were laid only one offspring was born May 25 or 26. The juvenile crane is a fuzzy orange with no feathers and it will not be able to fly for about two months after being born. The crane family can be seen in the fields and forested edges of Walker Valley. This is a reminder for folks to keep their dis-

tance and remember to keep their animals on a leash and under control during nesting season so as not to disturb or stress the various bird species that come here each summer. We are very fortunate to have them. Many Thanks to Patricia Spencer of EarthWise Ventures for her valuable information.

Traffic control We are getting complaints of excessive speeding again, and quite often, the vehicles are driving way past the speed limit, especially on the main roads. I watched a truck pass a school bus along Kallum Drive the other day only to be waiting at the Easy Drive stop sign. Was it really worth it and the possibility that something could have happened. The 108 Elementary School is still in session until the end of June, so let’s all drive safely.

Local ball teams take top spots at home tournament

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

The 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Squirts Minor Softball team finished up as the winner of a four-team tournament hosted by South Cariboo Minor Softball at Lumberman’s Park, June 15-16. In second place were the 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Mites, which had to play up a division to participate. A team from Clearwater placed third and

Barriere was fourth. The event was planned as both a squirt and mite division tournament, but 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Mites were the only mites to register, so had to take on the older squirt teams or bow out of the tournament. The local squirts took the tournament win with a five-game sweep, beating Clearwater in round-robin play by a score of 20-11; Barriere – 30-7; and 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Mites – 19-6. They met Clearwater

in the semifinals where Hayden Prodnuk contributed a home run and teammate Tanner Hooper hit two grand slams to add to a 15-9 victory. In the round robin, Prodnuk picked up two MVP awards for 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Squirts and Denny Gosselin got the nod for one. The 100 Mile Mites’ only two losses were to 100 Mile Squirts, with one each in the round robin and the final. Other round

robin results for the Mites were an 11-10 win against Clearwater and a 13-11 victory over Barriere. The 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Mites met Barriere in the semifinals where they pulled themselves out of an early sevenrun deficit to win the game, 18-14. MVP awards went to Ethan Sanders, Colby Glen and Easton Mills. In the final with the squirt home team, 100 Mile Mites held the lead for several innings, but the squirts managed to build up a three-run lead going into the final inning. They held the mites to two runs and did not need to use their last

bats to win the game 12-11. “100 Mile fastball has a very bright future,” says 100 Mile Squirts coach Cale Tessaro. His team was also in Clearwater on June 9 for a two-game set. 100 Mile took the first game with a score of 17-15, but lost the second game by one run. The 100 Mile Mites were in Richmond recently for the May Mayhem tournament, May 24-26, where the team won gold in its division. They have only lost three games this season, including two at the hands of 100 Mile ‘N’ Hour Squirts on the weekend.

No cash awarded at million dollar event

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

The Psalm 23 Transition Society’s Million Dollar Charity Hole-In-One Contest ended June 16 with no cash prizes being handed out for sinking an ace, but contestants did go home with other great prizes and bragging rights. Jay Scott of 108 Mile Ranch was declared the winner after surviving the elimination rounds and then landing his lone shot in the finals closest to the hole at 14 feet, 9 1/4 inches away. Reg Haggard and Gabe Pukacz were the other two finalists who joined Scott teeing off for the $1 million prize on hole No. 10 at a distance of 170 yards. Haggard landed his ball 22 feet, 4 3/4 inches from the hole, and Pukacz’s shot ended up off the green and did not count. The trio were the top 3 shooters in the semifinals, which also included John McNeil, Char Wahnschaff, Jordan Purcha, Bryant Hollins, Al Sidor, Joe Batalha and Billie Scott, who shot a hole-inone in the preliminary rounds. Mike Boyd also shot a hole-in-one in the

preliminaries, but he did not make it past the quarter-finals. An ace in the preliminaries did not qualify for cash. The event saw 63 people compete in the quarter-finals after qualifying in the top 10 of daily preliminaries, which ran June 7-15.

The quarter-finalists had a shot at winning $10,000 for an ace and semifinalists were shooting for $100,000. Only the top 3 finalists were eligible to win $1 million and they just had one shot apiece. Psalm 23 executive director Marvin Declare says he is happy with the response to the contest, which raised $6,942 for the society. “It’s really all about building relationships.” The tournament final round managed to go rain-free, but skies opened up during the awards presentation. More than $8,000 worth of donated prizes were given away throughout the contest. “It was a great day until the rains came,”

The most important fact to know is whether you need a crushed rock with a minus or a crushed rock that is clean. Gravel that has a minus after its name will contain small fines  250-397-2521  DISCOVERY from the crushing process that will compress between the bigger rock to help it to pack down 5115 Perkins Rd., Buffalo Creek MAIN FLOOR tighter. For example if a product is ‘¾” minus’, this means it will have every size fragment 2002 sq.ft. from fines up to ¾”. Any gravel that does not have the word minus after it will be a clean TOTAL AREA: 2002 sq.ft. rock. This means that it is strictly the sized rock that is in its name. WIDTH: It will85'-1" not have the fines DEPTH: 42'-0" in it, which means it will not pack down tightly. COVERED ENTRY With a new driveway it is typical to start with a clean rock to keep the mud down and give 88 sq.ft. your driveway good drainage and a firm base to top with a minus. If you have a muddy Main Floor driveway you need to put clean rock down to hold the mud back, give you good drainage and allow you to top with a minus without adding to your mud problem. You need to thinkALL about DESIGNS & PLANS © LINWOOD HOMES LTD. how deep your mud is and get a rock that is big enough to not sink and disappear into the mud. 1½ -¾” crushed basalt is commonly used in slightly muddy areas. In extremely muddy LAMINATE • HARDWOOD • CORK FLOORING situations start with a larger clean crushed rock (2-4” crushed basalt or 4-8” crushed basalt), then put in a smaller clean crushed rock (such as 1½-2½” crushed basalt or 1½ -¾” crushed Closed Mondays • OPEN: Tues. - Fri. 9am -5pm • Sat. 9am -4pm basalt) before adding a minus. For a driveway that is well established with no drainage or mud problem, it is typical to use 3/4” minus which will pack down and be stable. Clean rock 255 Hwy 97, 100 Mile House (Beside Chevron) here will shift out from under the tires causing ruts and loss of gravel. 250-395-3106

Application for a Permit Amendment Under the Provisions of the Environmental Management Act Ainsworth Lumber Co. Ltd. intends to submit this amendment application to the Director of Environmental Management to amend Permit PA-11706, issued May 14, 1993 and last amended October 8, 2010, which authorizes the discharge of air emissions from an Oriented Strand Board manufacturing facility. The land upon which the facility is situated and the discharge occurs is Lot 1 District Lots 266, 2144, 4183 and 8691, Lillooet District Plan KAP47915 (parcel identifier 017-885-58), located at/on/near 995 A Exeter Station Rd. (51’ 39 000 N and 121’ 22 310 W), within the 100 Mile municipality located in the South Cariboo Region. The amendment requests that the permit limit for particulate matter refer to mass loading to the atmosphere rather than concentration of the discharge and an increase in stack height to facilitate dispersion. Any person who may be adversely affected by the proposed amendment and wishes to provide relevant information may, within 30 days after the last date of posting, publishing, service or display, send written comments to the applicant, with a copy to the Regional Manager, Environmental Management Section at 400-640 Borland Street, Williams Lake, BC, V2G 4T1.

10 TIPS TO A GREAT SALE! 1. Place your advertisement for 2 weeks in our classified section. 2. Call friends and neighbours to see if they’d like to do a sale together. The bigger the selection, the more customers you’ll have. 3. Give yourself a couple of days to get organized. 4. Gather boxes, newspapers, and bags to use during the sale to package purchases. 5. Set your dates and times. The first and middle of the month are paydays for many people. 6. Take the time to clean up your items… products will sell better when they look “taken care of.” 7. Make the most of your display by setting up in a visible area such as the front yard, the driveway or near the curb. Don’t tuck yourself and your merchandise in a dark garage. 8. Label everything for sale with tape. Price it so you might consider buying it for yourself. 9. Before the sale, go to the bank. Get plenty of small bills and change to have on-hand. Keep a calculator handy for quick adding. 10. Be an entrepreneur. Make extra money by selling canned sodas, lemonade, etc., to shoppers. If you have kids, have them do this!

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Peter Lanosky on May 22, 2013 at the age of 62. Peter was born December 31, 1950 in Iroquois Falls, Ontario to Peter and Norma Lanosky. He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Lanosky; son Adam Lanosky, daughter Sara (Mike) Carline and granddaughter Blake Carline. Peter was a long time resident of Hinton before retiring to Bridge Lake, B.C. in 2007. Peter loved the simpler life in Bridge Lake and spent hours outside working in the garage, gardening, collecting wood, fishing and embracing nature. Peter enjoyed cooking and prepared many good meals with family and friends in both Hinton and Bridge Lake. His desire to travel took him many places around the world; most recently to Paris and the UK with his wife Bonnie. During his retirement Peter fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming an author and also became a grandfather (Gramps) to his ‘Beauty’ Blake. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on June 29, 2013 at 7833 Bell Road, Bridge Lake, B.C.; toast and tributes at 3:00 p.m.


Samuel robert Jr. Samuel Robert Wyzenbeek Jr. peacefully passed on at the age of 91 on March 16, 2013, after a 25 year battle with cancer. But for that, his mind was still sharp and would surely have made the century mark. Bob was born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1921 and his family moved to Los Angeles the next year, where he lived through high school and two years at UCLA before joining the Navy in 1942. Bob’s lifelong passion was aviation. He flew for 60 years and was in the air flying an open cockpit biplane out of what is now LAX when Pearl Harbor was attacked. He was a commander of a PBM flying boat patrol aircraft squadron off the Atlantic coast during WWII, and flew ‘Mats’ flights during the Korean conflict. After 17 ‘good years’ in the Navy, but still in the naval reserves, he joined Pan American Air Lines to keep his family from constantly moving. Bob worked for Boeing in Seattle before joining Continental Air Line as executive vice president of sales and corporate planning, as well as president of Air Micronesia, a subsidiary of Continental. He left there at age 62 after the company was sold. He then consulted for Federal Express to help them maximize their air transport services before retiring. Bob and his wife enjoyed 30 years of global travel and flying his Cessna 180 float plane around Canada where he had a summer home, and spending time with his extended family. He was preceded in death by Marion, his wife of 68 years, and is survived by his four chidren, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Bob was a self-made man of strong conviction whose word was his bond. He taught his family, and imparted to his many friends that ‘no one can take away your integrity, your knowledge or your experience’. He was respected and loved, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Remembrance Party, June 29, 2013 Bob Wyzenbeek, 17616 S.E. 292 Pl., Kent Wash. 98042

Canim Lake Band veterans are recognized annually at the Forest Grove Legion’s Remembrance Day ceremony.

Paul Theodore. First Nations soldiers became famous for their scouting, marksmanship and acts of bravery. There are many stories of them rescuing their comrades under fire. Their level of achievement in the military was a remarkable accomplishment considering the two serious obstacles they had to overcome as young recruits. The first was a racial prejudice that was prevalent at the time and the second was a language barrier, as all instructions were in English. First Nations veterans returned from the World Wars hoping that their achievements on the battlefields of Europe would lead to greater recognition and improved living conditions. However, not much changed for many years. They were not entitled to benefits accorded other veterans, such as land grants, mortgages and education subsides.

Although they had been proud warriors defending their country in global wars, they did were not allowed to vote federally until 1960, without losing their First Nations status. In recent years, Canadian people have begun to acknowledge the important role played by First Nations People in the military, both in the past and at the present time. Royal Canadian Legions across Canada have made a commitment to honour all Aboriginal veterans and their ancestors with commemorative pins that represent First Nations cultures from coast to coast. To celebrate Legion Week in Forest Grove, on June 26 commemorative pins will be distributed by Legion president Jim Tindale to the ancestors of Canim Lake Band veterans. The pins are available for purchase at Legion branches.

Commemorating Aboriginal Veterans By Marianne Van Osch When Canadians think of war veterans, they remember men who served in the First and Second World Wars 1, or in the Korean War. Young soldiers who have returned from modern peacekeeping duties may come to mind. We honour the veterans of those conflicts. However, there are other veterans who have been overlooked throughout our history. In the early days of exploration and expansion in Canada, First Nations people assisted military forces to move about the country and taught them how to hunt and forage for food. Without them, the soldiers might not have survived. Since the War of 1812, First Nations men have been fighting as regular soldiers. In 1884 during the Battle of Khartoum in Africa, Canadian Aboriginal soldiers travelled up the Nile to provide relief for British troops entrenched there. They also served in the Boer War. More than 7,000 First Nations men volunteered with British Forces during the First and Second World Wars. At least 500 perished in those wars. Many returned home disabled or with diseases, such as tuberculosis. More than 200 men from the Shuswap Nation in the British Columbia Interior volunteered in the World Wars, including the following men from the Canim Lake Band: Sam Archie, Henry Bob, Julian Boyce, Peter Christopher, Edward Dixon Sr., Morris Dixon, Louie Emile and
