Economic growth gains momentum By Stan Mitchell In 2012, the Cariboo’s economy experienced a second consecutive year of growth. Continued demand for our mining and forestry products has helped bolster our economy, which, in turn, has led to increases in local spending, business growth, housing development, and employment opportunities – for both locals and skilled workers from other regions. According to the BC CheckUp, Regional Edition, last year the Cariboo’s labour market expand-

ed by 4,000 new jobs, bringing overall regional employment to 85,200. This growth surpassed the pre-recession high set in 2007, and the addition of 6,300 new jobs in the goods-producing industry offset the accumulated losses of the past five years. In 2012, the value of provincial softwood lumber exports grew for the third consecutive year, increasing by 9.7 per cent. A rebound in United States housing starts saw lumber prices surge, while the extension of the U.S. softwood lumber deal, and British

Columbia’s victory in the softwood lumber dispute, freed up money set aside by B.C. forest companies for penalties. This was excellent news for our forestry and mining sector, which last year alone saw the addition of 3,200 new workers. Detailed statistics show that employment in both sub-industries expanded: forestry and logging by 2,200 jobs, and mining by 1,000 jobs. However, our region’s forest industry is not without its challenges – there remains a scarcity of loggers, haulers, operators, and

other skilled resource industry workers. Job declines in the warehousing and transportation industries also impact resource exports, while competition for a limited supply of truck drivers in Northern B.C. has impacted the logging industry. In an effort to alleviate the problem, the FIRST Logger Training Program was launched in the Cariboo last year, targeting log and chip drivers; to date, 100 per cent of the drivers have been hired.

Feeding wildlife harmful to animals

By Lorie Chortyk Feeding wildlife may seem like an enjoyable way to connect with nature, but it can often lead to serious problems for species, such as squirrels, raccoons, deer and bears. Wild animals who get used to a handout will often take the easy route despite ample natural foods being available – even in urban areas. Although it might seem harmless and cute to feed a squirrel on a park bench or ducks at the local pond, these activities can lead to increased habituation. Fed wildlife can become dependent on unreliable food sources and suffer nutritionally when given inappropriate foods. Habituated wild animals are also more susceptible to predators and vehicle collisions, as they lose their fear of people and the associated flight response. In other cases, wild animals that have been fed regularly can develop food-seeking aggression and can become hostile towards people and pets. Human carelessness can also lead to urban wildlife becoming habituated. Putting garbage out the evening before pick-up, using non-wildlife-proof bins, keeping pet food outside, leaving fallen

Feeding wild animals can cause a variety of problems.

fruit on the ground and littering can lead to situations where wild animals – and their offspring – are killed unnecessarily. One area where the experts disagree is on the feeding of migratory birds. Whether you agree or disagree with feeding birds, it is the most widespread and popular form of human-wildlife interaction worldwide. Although the BC SPCA prefers you to attract birds naturally with native plants, if you are going to feed migratory birds, please: • Ensure feeders are not accessible to other species, use baffles and “proof ” feeders. • Keep cats indoors and ask your neigh-

bours to do so as well. • Clean feeders regularly with a 10 per cent bleach dilution to prevent disease outbreaks. • Feed only seasonally when natural resources are limited. • Consult your local bird feed or nature store to determine the right feed for the season and the species. • Place feeders in protected areas, out of the rain, snow and wind. • Place feeders as far away from windows as possible. If it must be near a window, place it less than one metre away and use UV window decals to prevent injury. • Don’t ground feed, and clean spilled seeds frequently to avoid attracting rodents. • Do not use herbicides, fungicides or pesticides in your yard. • If maintaining a hummingbird feeder in winter, ensure that it does not freeze, as it is likely the only food source for the birds that are using it. • Never feed ducks, geese, swans, gulls, herons or eagles. For more information, visit Lorie Chortyk is the BC SPCA’s Community Relations general manager.

Several major projects set to go From 1

A note of concern is that while our overall unemployment rate dropped, youth unemployment (ages 19 to 24) in our region grew to reach 14 per cent – exactly double that of the general rate. The increased major project development in our region will result in increased labour demand and it is crucial that our youth receive the proper education and training so they can become skilled workers who have opportunities to capitalize on this growth. According to the BC Major Projects Inventory, eight projects valued at $788 million are set to proceed next year – a mix of mining, energy, and commercial development. Three of the projects poised to go ahead next year involve the conversion of wood waste and beetle-killed wood into various forms of energy. These include: Global Bio-Coal Energy’s Production Plant, valued at $30 million, ecoTECH’s Biomass

Project valued at $140 million, and the Alterna Biocarbon Manufacturing Facility valued at $15 million. Looking forward, as global demand for lumber and minerals increases, the Cariboo’s economy should continue to build positive momentum. However,

challenges relating to the recruitment, training, and retention of workers, in particular, young workers continue. In order to prevent labour market shortages from impacting business viability and major project development in our region, it

is imperative we focus on both retaining, and increasing jobs in our region’s most viable industries. Stan Mitchell is a chartered accountant with KPMG LLP in Prince George. The BC Check-Up report is available online at:

Tickets $25 each, $20 with a non-perishable food item in support of 100 Mile Food Bank

A cataract is any clouding or opacity in the crystalline lens - the transparent lens inside the eye. Most cataracts develop as part of the aging process. Optometrists feel that prolonged exposure (over years) to sunlight can damage the lens and plays a role in cataract development. Sunglasses are an effective way of slowing the long-term progress of most cataracts.

NOW YOU SEE ME pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen”, a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.

In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government sanctions an annual 12hour period in which any criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. Citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. One family wrestles with who they will become when a stranger comes knocking. When an intruder breaks into James Sandin’s (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, his actions threaten to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters they hide from.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, don’t worry about an upcoming doctor’s visit. You may just get a clean bill of health from your doctor this week. This will definitely ease up some stress. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 You are full of creative energy, Capricorn, and must turn it into projects that may help you to earn some money in the near future. Get started while you are motivated.

HOW TO PLAY: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Expect some news that sheds light on a difficult issue that you have been trying to resolve, Aquarius. You may feel so relieved that a celebration is in order. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Exciting changes are coming, and they all center around you, Pisces. It may be embarrassing being the center of attention, but try to enjoy it.

Working for the future MLA REPORT Donna Barnett

It is good to be back in the office after the hectic election period, and to continue my work as your representative in the legislature. By working together, I know we will be able to accomplish a lot in the next four years, and I will continue to make sure the voice of our

rural regions is heard. As the new Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations for Rural Development, I will work to build the economy in rural British Columbia, something that has always been close to my heart. I will also work to ensure rural schools get the same opportunities as those in big cities and our farmers and ranchers are heard, and will continue to push for the New Prosperity Mine project. Our government will bring real benefits for

rural areas, through policies, such as the tax exemption on purple gas for our farmers, and by supporting the renewal of our forestry industry through more trade with Asia. We will also continue to focus on fiscal responsibility and creating the conditions for strong economic growth with initiatives, such as a 40 per cent reduction in the small business tax and the cutting of red tape. These types of policies will bring many new economic opportunities to the Cariboo and other rural regions of our province.

high, he says, adding it is “just an amazing aircraft. “It was nice to have them here, it really was.” Christianson explains the Hercules drew quite a crowd of amazed onlookers from around the community, and others phoned in to ask what the unusually loud, rumbling takeoff was all about. The 54,000-litre fuel tank holds double the volume the airport carries, but since the aircraft has such a long range, he notes there was plenty of fuel on site to top it up, which “definitely helps” the airport. Stationed at 435 Squadron in Winnipeg, Man., the crew was flying the older 1973 Hercules to its new posting in British Columbia, Christianson says. He adds these older, four-engine fixed-wing turboprop aircraft are refurbished as needed

A large and prestigious military aircraft touched down on the tarmac at the South Cariboo (108 Mile) Regional Airport on June 12. There were 13 crew members aboard the CC-130 Hercules #333, who dropped in for a hamburger and french fries lunch at the 108 Golf Resort. Airport manager Nick Christianson says when he received the initial request to host the huge aircraft, he wasn’t sure it could safely land on the 5,000foot landing strip. “They are quite a lot larger than the Buffalo [military aircraft], which is maybe half that size. So it has much more capability, and much more endurance time.” In his decade as manager, he’s never seen a Hercules with a wing span of 133-feet set down at the airport, where he notes the airstrip is just 75-feet wide. However, the aircraft also has a Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) capability to operate on as little as a 3,000foot landing strip, so Christianson adds the airport has more than enough runway. When arranging the visit, Flight Commander Major Dennis Scharf told him he’d landed there in a Hercules 15 years ago, the airport manager says, so they went ahead with the landing, and all went smoothly. “I wasn’t sure we could fit a 155,000pound aircraft into our runway, but it’s obviously made for it, and it is nice to know we have that capability in case of disaster. It can move huge amounts of equipment and people really quickly. “If you take most of the big rescues done across Canada, it’s always the Hercules. That is the workhorse they have for [this purpose].” The top of the tail reaches almost 40 feet

troops, but is primarily used for search and rescue (SAR) missions. It is also equipped with the new 406 Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) tracking devices, he adds, for picking up signals from downed aircraft or personal locator beacons.

Barkerville Theatre Royal Gala Opening by Chris Nickless Sunshine, blue skies, bears, fox and enthusiastic theatre goers were all part of the Gala Opening day for Newman and Wright’s Theatre Royal in Barkerville June 15. The afternoon reception saw dignitaries from Prince George, Quesnel, The Cariboo Regional District and the South Cariboo partake of a sumptuous dim sum buffet while Barkerville’s operations manager James Douglas welcomed guests and told the attendees about some exciting things in the future for the provincial heritage site. Newman and Wright’s afternoon and evening performances were well attended and proved to be equally, if not greater than performances in years past. No visit to Barkerville is complete without taking in one or more of the Theatre Royal’s most excellent productions. Well done Richard, Amy and the whole theatre group. At the evening performance, a short but hilarious auction took place, helping the theatre’s bank account but more importantly providing a highly entertaining bonus for all the attendees. A visit to the Barkerville Historic Site and Theatre Royal should be a bucket-list must for this year.

Youth needed for free Educo experience The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) in 100 Mile House is looking for 10 girls and 10 boys who would like to experience a day and a night at Educo Adventure School free of charge this summer. CFEC is footing the bill for the youth, who must be between the ages of 12 and 18, through the Community Action Initiative (CAI) funding the centre received around 18 months ago. CFEC community

development program manager Chris Pettman says the money is coming out of the Involve Our Youth program, which was the result of the CAI application. “The goal is to integrate and motivate the youth in our community. The objective is to increase youth attachment and capacity in our community and, thereby, decrease the likelihood of at-risk behaviours.” Last year, Pettman says, the CFEC youth had the Educo camp

Teen Space enjoyed Wells/Barkerville

Diana Forster Interlakes youth group, Teen Space, which is sponsored by the Cariboo Presbyterian Church, spent May 31-June 2 visiting Barkerville and area. They were guided by the appropriate biblical theme from Psalm 19, v10 - “God’s teaching is more precious than pure gold.” Co-ordinated by Coreen Caldwell, the trip included Dawn and Cameron Caldwell, Katelynn and Caleb Duits, Brent Ehlers, Fessica Fauchier and Jason Vogel, as well as chaperones Elaine and Bill Adams and Ken Malm. The whole exercise, including food and lodging, was excellently planned by Coreen, and the youth had a marvellous time. They spent two nights, with their own

Horses & Heroes 2013 Aircraft always welcome at 108 strip 3rd Annual Private Treaty Horse Sale From 8

RCAF SAR Techs are members of elite, highly-trained rescue specialist teams that provide on-scene medical aid and evacuation all over Canada, regardless of the conditions. The 435 Squadron also supports SAR units in the United States, and recently participated in a joint mission over Lake Superior. Their regular patrols range from the B.C.Alberta border to Thunder Bay, and from the U.S. border to the North Pole. Hercules aircraft are also used for a wide range of other RCAF missions, including troop transport, tactical cargo airlift (including vehicles), air-to-air refuelling (AAR) and aircrew training. It carries 6,200 lbs. in its own fuel and can hold another 38,000 lbs. of fuel in its supply tanks for tactical AAR. They are so large and cumbersome, Christianson notes they take up a bit of time and a lot of tarmac, so for small, but busy airports,

it can create an obstacle smack in the middle of the action. However, the military’s aircraft are always warmly welcomed on the landing strip at 108 Mile Ranch, he explains, and the crews seem to appreciate and enjoy that. “They are now going to be coming up a little more often. Major [Scharf] said they’d definitely be back, they were quite pleased.” With files from Chris Nickless.

April Roberts photo
