Local Garrett Mack enthusiastically takes part in the 28th Annual Valley Ridge Riders Rodeo last weekend

Crowds celebrate local participants at 28th Annual Bella Coola Rodeo JOY MACKAY Blue skies and smiles prevailed at the 28th Annual Bella Coola Rodeo, hosted by the Valley Ridge Riders. This year’s celebration, which ran from June 28 through July 1 began in earnest on Friday afternoon, with an open gymkhana, featuring cash prizes and buckles for the high point winners in each of four agebased categories. Contestants competed in five events: Keyhole, Polebending, Stake Race, Scurries, and Barrel Racing. The gymkhana was extremely well attended by rid-

ers, running from 3:00 pm until after 7:00. While the only rain of the weekend fell late in the afternoon on Friday, it didn’t dampen the spirits of contestants or the general public who attended the open air dance on Friday evening, enjoying upbeat live music by Saskatchewan band, Trick Ryder, who entertained on both Friday and Saturday nights. Reviews of this year’s band were unanimously positive. On Saturday and Sunday, the action got underway in the afternoon with rodeo performances co-approved

by the British Columbia Rodeo Association (BCRA) and Western Indian Rodeo and Exhibition Association (WIREA). For the second year in a row, the rodeo format featured two full one-day rodeos. The change in format from previous years was intended to encourage contestants to make the comparatively long haul to Bella Coola in order to compete, rather than attend conflicting events in Bridge Lake, Williams Lake, or elsewhere. The two-rodeo format allows contestants to potentially achieve points twice over the weekend, improving their

chances of “winning the year” in their chosen event. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the two one-day rodeo format, the Bella Coola organizing committee will now look at how to balance the large number of entries with the need to keep the day from running too long. Perhaps next year will see full rodeo action spread over three days, rather than two? In addition to the standard events that make up the regular rodeo performances, the Valley Ridge Riders hosted a number of novelty events encouraging local participa-

tion. Events to which local spectators have become accustomed include the very popular Businessman’s Cow Ride, Wild Cow Milking, a Calf Scramble for the kids, and the most popular “event” with spectators, the Cow Patty Bingo. A few lucky locals went home with bigger-than-average smiles as a result of these novelty events.

throughout. Another significant change in the weekend’s activities, from previous years, flowed from the decision made early in the year, not to hold a bull-a-rama on Monday. Recent years has seen a decline in attendance by bull riders, for a variety of reasons. Rather than fight the trend, the Valley Ridge Riders Board of Directors decided to host a number of different activities on Monday. A Jackpot Team Roping and Wild Pony Race had spectators cheering and laughing through the afternoon. Monday’s featured event: the Junior Steer Riding, proved to be both exciting

and lucrative for several contestants and one lucky Spectator. Mitch Lorimer showed his support and appreciation for the Juniors – the bull riders of tomorrow – and the young men put on a great performance, with Kyle Bell winning the day for Mr. Lorimer. Word has it that the Bella Coola Steer Riding, complete with Calcutta – the auctioning of riders to the bidding public - will become a regular annual event. Veteran rodeo announcer and auctioneer Brian Baldry called the action, much to the crowd’s enjoyment. Of course, a full weekend of excitement and entertainment requires a lot of work behind the scenes, and the VRR

Rodeo is no exception. While a few of the participants are professionals who make their living in rodeo, the vast majority are volunteers, and it takes a lot of volunteers to put on a show of this caliber! From local business and individuals who sponsor events with cash donations, to the many people pulling shifts in the concession, beer garden, and at the entrance gates, to the local and almost local folks, who keep the stock moving and gates working on the backside, each and every role is important. Many people put the weekend together, and many more enjoy the final result. The Valley Ridge Riders thanks them all!

Reader believes article printed with wrong intentions Dear Editor, As a Bella Coola Valley resident for the past 24 years, I have never seen an article as the one printed about Denise Perry. It seems to have been printed with malicious intent. I can’t understand the purpose of printing such an article. Why would anyone try to damage the

reputation of a person who used to live here? Denise worked very hard for the School District and accomplished beneficial results for our valley. I believe that printing an article like that was a very rude and mean-spirited action.

Dear Editor, Re: Letter of support for Denise Perry It is my opinion the Ms. Perry went over and above her job description at S.D. #49 to gain facilities and make education a certainty in the public school system in the Bella Coola Valley. When our student population would not warrant a large gym, Denise invited

the community athletic programs to support the need for a bigger gym. She worked tirelessly to make the addition a reality, by negotiating on our behalf, with the Ministry of Education. Students cite that it was through her determined efforts that S.D. #49 got new gym and Outdoor Education equipment. Healthy

Beginnings benefitted from our relationship with S.D. #49 during Denise Perry’s tenure. She encouraged the STRONGSTART leader to attend the longstanding Healthy Beginnings program held on Friday mornings. This partnership encouraged parents of the valley to attend both programs with their children. In 2009, we were looking to replace

the mouldy, old double-wide trailer with a pre-fabricated building. When the plans were shared with a local contractor, he took them to the Superintendent to see if it was a project that S.D. #49 could undertake. The RCMP and S.D. #49 came forward with a plan to help build a Cedar post & timber frame building. Many young men learned Level One or

Two carpentry skills and attended the Alternate program, as well. Healthy Beginnings has a beautiful Cedar building, thanks to our partnership. In closing, I feel that the community was fortunate to have Denise here, working on behalf of all the children and the valley residents. Sincerely, Gail Moody

A sign of changing times at the Art House Ernest Hall The Bella Coola Valley Arts Council last week installed a large eye-catching sign outside the former Art House at the school entrance in Hagensborg as one step in changes ahead for the arts in the Valley community. The installation of the new sign is part of an effort to make the gallery more prominent as the Council begins a project to convert the gallery into a lively venue both for showcasing Valley talent and marketing local artwork – as well as retaining the space for small-group performance events such as readings and small concerts. Nuxalk Hereditary Chief Noel Pootlass, wearing his regalia, was on hand with Arts Council President Kathleen Booth to unveil the new ‘Vallery Gallery’ sign outside the former Art House in Hagensborg last week. Also present were young Nuxalk painter Theoran Evans, Arts Council Secretary Ernest Hall, Council pioneer Lucille Thompson, School District #49 Superintendent Norma Hart, and Council Treasurer Ray McIlwain. The Nuxalk image of the Sun, a symbol of enlightenment, was designed by Noel Pootlass, and the renaming of the venue as ‘Valley Gallery’ embodies the function of the space as an allinclusive venue for the arts in the Valley community. Also last week, the Council presented the 2013 Visual Art Show at the Gallery - an exhibition of more than 40 pieces by 15 of the Valley's finest artists. Works included a large variety of paintings, photography, clay sculpture, and pottery by local artists – including six paintings by young Nuxalk artists Theoren Evans and Jim Tallio. Recognizing the importance of encouraging young artists, the Council purchased paintings by Theoren and Jim to join the

Arts Council Secretary Ernest Hall congratulates Theoren Evans on the Council's purchase of his "Raven" painting. This painting, and another by Theoran's SAMS schoolmate Jim Tallio have become part of the Arts Council's permanent collection. Council’s “Permanent Collection”. On hand at the Show’s opening were representatives of the Williams Lake and District Credit Union and School District #49, without whose support and encouragement, the Art House operation would probably have ended some time ago. With the closing of the 10-day Show July 1, the Council is now at work installing shelving and creating display space, arranging the former teacher residence to handle a variety of artwork and fine crafts by local artisans who will operate the Gallery as a co-op of volunteers working in the “gallery shop” in exchange for marketing their work there. To this end, the Council is calling on all Valley artists and crafters to consider participating in this exciting new development – intended to provide a variety of locally-created work at affordable prices that appeal to both Valley residents and visiting tourists. These changes have come about because of financial concerns that prompted the Council to consider closing the former Art House this fall. Instead, the Council has decided to continuing maintaining the venue for another year (at least), but only if the opera-

tion can become more financially viable. To do this, volunteer commitment by the Valley arts community is essential. The Council also recognizes the necessity of the strong ongoing support of School District #49, particularly the enthusiasm of Superintendent Norma Hart who has assured the Council of the District’s interest

in bolstering the arts in the Valley by providing the building to the Council at no cost. Norma’s input in the renovations under way is also invaluable. Those wishing to get involved in these exciting developments can contact Council Secretary Ernest Hall at 982-2735 or through “Belco” on Facebook.

SAMS Outdoor Education Program canoes Turner Lake Chain SAMS Outdoor Education Program recently returned from a very memorable experience on the Turner Lake chain and Hunlen Falls/Stillwater trail. This was their seven-day spring expedition, which was very challenging but also equally rewarding. We had some weather on the trip, and had to wait it out or anchor up as some say. The group also managed to break most of our records by working extremely hard on portages and supporting one another. Each student successfully completed

their 24-hour solo; the shelters they built were very impressive!! We also made it to Sunshine Lake and discovered a canoe which was left at the high elevation lake had been dined on by a grizzly bear, luckily it wasn’t one of our canoes. Like most years we sailed the entire length of Turner Lake, the weather seemed to turn in our favour. With the wind at our back we cruised into the campsite as one big sailing vessel (nine canoes in total) and two sails. The Hunlen Falls Trail and view-

Lichen fun!

point did not disappoint as the 800-foot waterfall plunges from the plateau into the Stillwater Valley. This year we camped down at Stillwater Lake, and had to ferry students and equipment across the Lake. The whole operation went smoothly, as did the hike out. Students led a majority of the time during the trip and can take pride in how strong of a group they have become. Greeting us the end of the Tote Road were our drivers, who also brought some goodies for the group, much appreci-

ated!! To top the trip off, we saw a nice grizzly on the highway. We will be doing a slide-show presentation exhibiting our 2012/13 trips. There will be photographs from the Fall hike in to Crystal Lake and the rainbow cabin, winter trip up to Eastbranch and of course Turner Lake. The slide show will be in the NES gym from 7:30-9:00. Five dollars at the door or by donation. We will also be presenting awards to the Happy Warriors from each trip. I encourage all parents to attend and any grade nine students interested in learning more about the program. We would like to thank the following organizations for their support: School District 49, the bus garage and Stephen Sheppard, Williams Lake and District Credit Union, SD 49 Board of Directors, Hagensborg Mercantile, Bella Coola Air/Wayne Sissons, BC Parks, chaperones Kyha Saban, Craig and Wanda Tuck, Tom Carneigh.

Ms. Wilson's Grade 3 Class ‘Swims to Survive’ Grade Three students at B.C.E. and Acwsalcta have been learning to ‘Swim to Survive.’ Many thanks to the Centennial Pool and Janice Newkirk for presenting the program which was funded by the Lifesaving Society due to generous grants from the RBC Foundation and BC Transmission Corporation, along with the BCE PAC and SD 49.

Swim to Survive is a Lifesaving Society survival-training program that teaches students the minimum skills needed by all Canadians to survive an unexpected fall into deep water. These are expressed in a skill sequence: Roll into deep water, Tread water (one minute) and Swim 50 metres. The Lifesaving Society has developed a Swim to Survive School

program that involves three 15-minute classroom lessons and three one-hour pool sessions. The three main skills were taught and practiced at the pool in a variety of fun activities and games. “The Lifesaving Society has an aim to have every Grade Three student in BC and the Yukon achieve the Swim to Survive Standard,”

says Janice Newkirk, Pool Manager at the Centennial Pool. “This year we were able to reach 33 Grade Three students in the Valley, with both B.C.E. and Acwsalcta students completing the program.” Students said they felt happy to take the course as it was fun and awesome. Everyone liked the course a lot, especially rolling in the

pool head first and sideways. Some said they liked learning to tread water because it helped them to stay up longer. It was cool learning to swim in waves that other kids made using kickboards. One student

said, “It was cool to learn how to protect ourselves. Water is pretty dangerous unless you know how to save yourself.” The Grade Three class appreciated learning how to Swim to Survive. It was an

exciting way to learn better swimming skills. Thanks again to Janice Newkirk, the Lifesaving Society, BCE PAC, SD 49, and the pool staff for providing this opportunity for our children.

Derek Miller and Daniel Wesley to headline Bella Coola Music Festival The countdown is on to the 14th Annual Bella Coola Music Festival! This year you won’t want to miss the musical talents of Derek Miller (Toronto), headlining Saturday night, July 20, and Daniel Wesley (Vancouver) headlining Sunday night, July 21. Derek Miller is a journeyman musician with eclectic taste and a knack for roots inflected rock. Born on the Six Nations of the Grand River, Mohawk Territory. Miller became interested in music in his early teens, and by the late 90s had not only toured with iconic Canadian vocalist Buffy Sainte-Marie but had also garnered a Juno for both his debut album, ‘Music is the Medicine,’ and sophomore album ‘The Dirty Looks’ in 2008. Derek Miller is

a dynamic performer, whether you catch him live or are listening to his studio albums. Singer/guitarist Daniel Wesley and his band are an eclectic mix of alternative music, blending reggae, folk and rock. After recording the album ‘Sing & Dance’ in June of 2007, Vancouver’s popular CFOX radio debuted his first single “Ooo Ohh,” which became the Fox’s most requested song of 2007. Wesley just released his sixth CD, ‘Ocean Wide,’ this spring. Most recently, voters on CFOX Radio elected him as the most popular artist in Vancouver. You won’t want to miss this year’s Festival. For a complete lineup, visit www.bellacoolamusic.org

As I started to write this, I wondered how I was going to sum up 65 years of my father’s life in such a few short paragraphs. I also realized that no matter what I came up with wouldn’t do justice to the extent of his life, for he had a full one. He loved, and was loved, by many. I read somewhere that one of the measures of success of a man’s life is by the other lives he touched and the number of people who loved him. This is hard to determine, but remembering all who came out the day we lay my father to rest, I think that question answered itself.

The people he impacted and moments shared I could list forever, but most of those stories are best recounted by those who experienced them. I trust these times will be kept alive in our hearts, to bring a smile when we need one. While my father’s life was cut shorter than any of us would have liked, please find comfort in those cherished memories.

Derek Miller

In the moment when my dad’s soul left his body, I did not feel the universe change or feel his presence leave me; nor do I feel it gone now. Our world is a little less bright since he left and we will miss his conversation, his humor, his laugh, his voice, but his spirit is still with us, in our mind and in our heart. He’ll always be close by to listen and to support us when we need it. We are all stronger for having him as a part of our lives, and that is all he ever wanted for us. Better late than never, but never late is better. On behalf of my late father, Howard Walkus, I want to thank everyone for their donations and support during our fundraising efforts. This allowed us to be with our dad when he came out of his surgeries Not a day goes by that we don’t think him. From my family, Jordan, Lorne, James, Cyril and I, we would like to say a really big thank you for the continuous outpour of love and support that everyone has shown to us.

Daniel Wesley

Bella Coola team completes Tough Mudder challenge Caitlin Thompson It was wet, muddy, and very, very cold but the Bella Coola Grizzly Sows completed the infamous ‘Tough Mudder’ challenge in Whistler on June 22nd. After months of training, Shauna DeGrace, Fawn Gunderson, Caitlin Thompson, Chantale St. Pierre, Tanya Moren, Banchi Hanuse, Lauren Collier (Squamish) and Zoe Thompson (Vancouver) made up the eight-person, allwomen team. Billed as ‘probably the toughest event on the planet,’ the Tough Mudder is a series of obstacles inspired by the British Special Forces to test your all around ‘strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie,’ and is set up over an 18 kilometre course. It is also part of a larger cause – the ‘Wounded Warrior

Project.’ Every Tough Mudder event hosts a team of ‘Wounded Warriors’ on each course, and ‘Mudders’ are encouraged to fundraise for the charity as part of their participation. Monies raised go to helping veterans recover from the debilitating effects of military service, such as stress and physical impairment. The Bella Coola team started at 11am on June 22, part of an estimated 25,000 other people that had come to watch and participate. The course was set up in Whistler’s Olympic Park, over a rugged 18-kilometre track with 20 obstacles. Some of the more famous obstacles included the ‘Arctic Enema,’ where participants are required to jump in a neckdeep tub of freezing, ice-filled water, then dive under a board to

surface through ice cubes on the other side. Brain freeze extraordinaire! Another crowd favourite was the ‘Electric Eel.’ Mudders had to army crawl through a watery, muddy section about 30 feet long with electric wires hanging down all the way through. Talk about shocking! ‘Walk the Plank,’ a 14-foot jump into a muddy pool of water, had many Mudders shaking and was a definite hurdle for those with a fear of heights. The final stretch consisted of the ‘Boa Constrictor,’ a crawl through some waterfilled, muddy tunnels (not a happy place for the claustrophobics), the ‘Funky Monkey,’ a trip across an adultstyle jungle gym, it’s just happens to be above some more freezing cold, muddy water, and the final zap – ‘Electroshock

Grizzly Sows linked arms and ran through as a team! Cold, wet, and seriously muddy, we proudly donned the renowned ‘Tough Mudder’

orange headband and t-shirts. Too bad we were shaking so much from the cold we couldn’t even finish the celebratory beer!

SAMS students rewarded with a day-trip to Tallheo Cannery As part of the academic effort incentive program at Sir Alexander Mackenzie School, over 20 students were rewarded with a day-trip to Tallheo Cannery. The program has

been in place now for over three years and involves rewarding effort that goes beyond just beyond straight academic achievement. Traditionally on a report card

students are graded both for their academic achievement level represented by a letter grade (A, B, C+, etc.) and for their effort (‘E’ for Excellent, ‘G’ for Good, ‘S’ for

Satisfactory, etc.). The program at SAMS recognizes students who achieve all “E”s and/or “G”s. It is possible to meet this criteria and not have all “A”s and “B”s as long as the classroom

teacher feels the student is working up to their potential. As mentioned over 20 students met this criteria and enjoyed as their reward a day over at Tallheo Cannery. The stu-

dents in no particular order were: Niamh Cearnaigh, Aodhan Cearnaigh, Raine Cross, Aiden Hindley, Catriona Nelson, Claudia Nelson, Tyra Schooner, Isaac Mack-Silver,

Samuel Stewart, Teah Siwallace, Jacob Gascoyne, Kelly Harrison, Lauren Harrison, Faith Fontaine, Hailey Karran, Kasey Karran, Ezra Mecham, Jordan Tuck, Dylan Tuck, Ashley Moore, Hunter Harestad, Etienne Le Bouder, Breagha Koroluk, Cassie Dawson, Felicity Walkus-Snow, Melissa Brooks, Cassie Brooks, ShariLyn Harris, Braden Tallio, Carrigan Tallio, Jordan Hall, Raechelle MackHarvey, Isaiah Edgar, and Aaron Schieck. Although the weather wasn’t perfect, the sun did shine through a few times allowing the students to enjoy the campfire, hot dogs, swimming and taking turns paddling the kayak. Many thanks to Garrett Newkirk who gave the students an excellent historical tour of the cannery. Thank also Steven and Nick with BC Parks and the Hakai Ranger for giving the students a ride to the cannery and back!
