Canadian Taxpayers Federation British Columbia director Jordan Bateman brought the B.C. Debt Clock to Tim Hortons in 100 Mile House for a brief stopover on July 9, as part of a whirlwind tour spanning 30 communities, which is wrapping up shortly. His estimate of the provincial debt is at more than $57 billion and climbing.

Debt Clock ticks in 100 Mile House

Do you know how fast the province’s debt is growing? Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) British Columbia director Jordan Bateman says in his meteoric, 14-day B.C. Debt Clock tour launched in late June, people frequently mistook the dollar figure it displays as millions – and were shocked to discover it was billions. “This is why we have the debtper-person number on here, too. [One dad] said: ‘that’s $12,000 for every man, woman and child? I have five, so that’s $60,000!’ So, good reactions, and lots of disbelief.” During his July 9 visit to Tim

Hortons in 100 Mile House, he estimates the provincial debt at more than $57 billion – and growing by $214 every second. Bateman notes debt reduction was paramount in the B.C. Liberal’s election campaign, yet it continues to grow substantially every day. “If this clock was here in 2016, it would say $70 billion.” He says some folks have asked him what that money is being spent on before conceding their concern. “Within the borrowing, there are actually worthwhile projects – hospitals, schools, roads. But, I think most people expect government to finally get ahead of these projects; I believe this bothers

people.” paid off the financial debt. Concerns have also been Instead, they put it toward other expressed about the degree of BC programs, Olympic spending – Hydro debt, so Bateman explains things that are nice to have, but many conversations revolved obviously not necessary.” Unfortunately, the “bad times around good debt versus bad came back,” he adds, and the debt. “Right now, debt servicing in debt has more than doubled in B.C. is about $2.5 billion a year. If 10 years. Bateman notes the CTF looks it was a ministry of government, it would be the third largest – the for tangible benefits from government spending, so he wonders Ministry of Debt.” If interest rates go up even why B.C. tourism is in a decline one point, taxpayers will feel the three years after the 2010 Olympic impact of another $100 million a Games. “Like the Juno Awards and the year, Bateman says, adding that’s Times of India Film Awards ... also “a lot of money.” For anniversary thesevisit nice, big, glitzy events “When the [former premierevents that government loves to put Gordon] Campbell government or email was in and amassed a surplus in money into, but we never see any speak tohave us directly cash call flow250.459.2261 result.” the mid-2000s, ittoshould

Interlakes region area hits high fire danger rating Cariboo Fire Centre (CFC) and Wildfire Management Branch (WMB) weather stations report the fire danger rating has moved to extreme for the first time this season, near Middle Lake in the west Chilcotin. The fire danger rating is moderate throughout the rest of the CFC, with areas of high in the Quesnel region, near Riske Creek and Tatla Lake in the Chilcotin, and Deception, Prairie Creek and Windy Mountain in the Interlakes region. As of July 9, there have been a total of 57 wildfires in the CFC this season, 44 person-caused and 13 lightning-caused, burning 1,068 hectares. The Chilcotin has accounted for 26 of the person-caused fires. The CFC staff reminds the public there is an open burning prohibition in place for the entire Cariboo-Chilcotin region, banning any backyard and industrial waste, slash or grass fires, which went into effect on April 15. The public is also urged to be vigilant with any type of fire use, including campfires, and to properly and safely extinguish cigarettes. Meanwhile, the CFC’s Quesnel-based Blackwater Unit crew continues to work on a lightning-caused wildfire near Mount Brew, east of Likely and north of Quesnel Lake. The small fire is burning in steep, difficult terrain. To report a wildfire or unattended campfire, call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cell phone.

Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute always welcomes new ladies For many years, the Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute (WL&DWI) members looked after both the concession stand and the “cook shack” at the annual Watch Lake/ Green Lake gymkhanas held the second Saturday in July and August (July 13 and Aug. 10 this year). It was a major fundraising project for our W.I. and a great deal of work, planning and effort went into making sure everything went well, WL&DWI president Ruth Kachur says, adding there was plenty of pop, hotdogs and chocolate bars for the hungry crowds. Over the years, however, with the decline of membership and the extreme difficulty of getting volunteers to help at these events, Kachur says they had to look for other ways to raise money.

One of the new fundraising ideas was to try a bake sale at the local mall before Christmas. “It was hugely successful – beyond our wildest dreams – and there were a lot of goodies to be had and everything sold out.” Now, the WL&DWI has an Easter bake sale for the end of March and there are always a lot of bunnies, Easter eggs and all sorts of Easter goodies for sale, she adds. Another fundraising idea, which has been successful and not nearly the work, is helping out at the meat draws at the Dusty Rose Pub in 70 Mile House on Saturday afternoons on a rotating basis, Kachur says. She adds it is a good money maker and does not entail the work of the gymkhanas. “We are looking for another prosperous year and we have even gained a new member.”

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

This is the big one where we need people to sign up.” As far as how many volunteers the Wranglers need, Bachynski says the “more volunteers they have the less of a burden it is on everybody. “We need to have volunteers for the preseason, the 26-game regular season and the playoffs. It becomes a bit of a burden and you don’t want to do it all of the time, but if you do it for five or 10 games, it’s not as big of an issue.” He adds they need between 12 and 24 volunteers a game.

Seniors injured in a Fish report motor-vehicle incident with a moose

Boomerang Lake – Rainbow trout are attracted to a Willow leaf, Wedding ring and worms, a Bolo lake troll, Gold Hildebrandt and worms, a Doc Spratley and a Leech.

Two seniors were injured when their vehicle impacted a moose on Highway 24 on July 6. It also killed the moose and severely damaged the vehicle. 100 Mile House RCMP Sgt. Don McLean says the call came in at 9:45 p.m. and police, fire departments and BC Ambulance Service responded to the scene in the 6300block of the highway. Both occupants, who suffered non-life threatening injuries, were transported by ambulance to 100 Mile District General Hospital, he says, adding no update has been provided as to how they are doing now.

Interlakes Volunteer Fire Department chief Doug Townsend says it happened less than a kilometre west of Fawn Creek Road. He notes the Toyota careened off the road into the bush after hitting the moose. The man was extricated from the car by 100 Mile House FireRescue (OMHFR), which provided the highway rescue services, Townsend says. “It’s just amazing they are alive; it was a tremendous impact. Not only with the moose, but going off the road into those trees, that would be a secondary impact.” Townsend explains his department attend-

ed with two engines and a dozen members, including five first responders, and remained on scene for about three hours. Mutual aid was also provided by Lone Butte Fire Department and OMHFR, he adds. The fire chief notes drivers impacting moose are always going to incur severe vehicle damage and risk personal injury, so he reminds folks this is a wildlife area where animals are frequently on the roads. “With something the size of a moose, it is always going to be a horrendous accident.” McLean adds the RCMP left the highway open for the most

Sulphurous Lake – Kokanee will go after a Willow leaf, Apex and Fire corn, a Bolo lake troll, needle fish and worms, a Kokanee killer fly, and a Red Doc Spratley. Howard Lake – Rainbow trout are attracted to a Ford fender, Kwik fish and worms, a Willow leaf, Apex and worms, and a Leech. Bob Lake – Kokanee will hit on a Willow leaf, Wedding ring and worms, a Dodger, Engagement band and fire corn, a Red Doc Spratley, and a Kokanee killer.

Heat was on at Men’s Club golf

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

It was a game of beat the heat for 62 Men’s Night golfers who played at 108 Golf Resort July 3. The temperature crept above 30 C at its highest but it didn’t bother Bill Harris, Matt McNeil, John McNeil, Eric Ohlund, Dave Evans, Bill Graham and Jack Rausch who all potted deuces. First-flight lowgross competition saw Vern Jeffry take the lead with 33, followed by Harris with 35, and Dave Robertson with 36 The low-net winner was M. McNeil with a 32 on a count back over J. McNeil, and Jim Laird was third with 33. In the second flight,

Rick Lunstead won the low gross with a 39 and Spence Henderson shot 40 for second. Ron Vandermay scored 41 for third. Brian Coldwell won the low net with a 32, Merle Ross was second with a 34 on a count back over Greg Aiken. The third flight saw Ron Kelly place first in low gross with a 43 and Al Kregosky was second with 44. Ron Tont scored 45 for third. Low-net champ was Dave Wolczuk with 33 and Ken Waite scored a 34 for second. Marvin Declare was third at 36. Long drives were bagged by David Robertson, Jim French and Declare. Closestto-the-pin winners were Graham, Dan Hadden and Waite.

BC Coroners Service urges water safety

With the promise of another sizzling summer ahead, the BC Coroners Service is warning residents and visitors to take extra care when enjoying water-based activities at lakes, rivers, pools and the seashore. Last week, coroners in British Columbia have begun investigations into four drowning deaths, reinforcing BC Coroners Service statistics that show a high percentage of drownings in B.C. occur in the months of May through August. The four deaths occurred in different parts of B.C. and encompass four entirely different sets of circumstances: a three-year-old child in a backyard swimming pool; a teenager who slipped and fell while playing at the top of a waterfall; a middleaged man tubing on a fast-running river; and another man who died in a swimming incident in an Interior lake. The variety of cases shows the many dangers that water can hold and, thus, the need for extra vigilance whether swimming, boating or even just walking along the edge of a body of water. A review of drowning deaths over the past five years shows many victims are unfamiliar with the waters involved and therefore don’t see the risk or underestimate it. Those risks can include such things, such as unexpected currents, steep and sudden drop offs, or unusually high water levels because of heavy rains or late spring runoff. In a fast-flowing river, six inches of water can sweep a person downstream and two feet can carry away most vehicles. The BC Coroners Service also stresses that alcohol and water-based activities don’t go together, any more than drinking and driving do. The review showed that fully 40 per cent of the victims were impaired by alcohol or drugs.

CFEC goals set for 2013/14

At its May meeting, the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) board approved goals and objectives for 2013/2014. “These goals and objectives, which each have action plans and measures of success, ensure our accountabil-

ity and transparency to the South Cariboo community and our funders, including the Ministry of Children and Family Development,” said cochair Sheila Hart. The goals • Be a centre of

excellence; • Be an employer of choice; • Financial stability; • Increase community awareness; and • Enhance community collaboration. Some of the ways CFEC will achieve these goals include incorpo-

rating autism as part of its core services; providing educational and training opportunities for staff; launching a fundraising campaign; redeveloping its website; and participating with the South Cariboo Fo o d S ecurity Committee.

108 lady golfers practiced for Pud Griffin Memorial Tournament

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

The 108 Ladies Golf Club played a game of Two Ball, Best Ball on July 2, imitating the Pud Griffin Memorial Tournament, which took place on the following weekend. The team of Lynda

Lewis and Gisela Neuber won the lownet competition with a score of 30. Pauline Weigelt and Lorraine McCaffrey were second with 31 on a count back over Billie Scott and Millie Halcro who took third. The low-gross top

3 winners all came in with scores of 42, but after the count back, Joanne Garrow and Leslie Bell were awarded first place. Annie McKave and Cathy Waite took second and Kelly Bucknell and Angela Batalha were third.

Seniors enjoy puttering around at 108 Golf Resort

Twenty-one golfers attended Seniors Day at the 108 Golf Resort on July 4. It was a nice day for a round under the “total putts” format, except for a cool wind in the morning. Kris Anderson took first place with 15 putts. John Tomlinson had 16 putts and finished in a three-way tie for second place with George Tittel and Bonnie McColl. Maureen Menzies had 17 putts on her scorecard and settled for a fiveway tie for third place with Peggy Chenier, Gisela Neubert, Ervin Hannah and Dave Funk.

It features standard events, such as barrel racing, stake race, pole bending, key hole and a few novelty races for age divisions – peewee, junior, intermediate and senior. Events start at noon and rider registration is at 10:30 a.m. Competitors ride for ribbons and prize money, and there will be aggregate winners determined in each division. Points carry over to the Aug. 10 gymkhana in the race for overall aggregate prizes. Bring along a lawn chair and sit in the shade of the aspen trees or find a premium seat on the bleachers. A full concession stand and refreshment garden will be in operation. The gymkhanas are hosted by the Watch Lake/North Green Lake Community Association and have been a summer highlight for locals and visitors in the community for more than 50 years. Says spokesperson Dimps Horn: “It’s such a beautiful gymkhana ground and nice event for people to come to.” Gate admission for all ages is $2.

Lake Of The Trees open house makes a splash

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Lake Of The Trees Bible Camp (LOTT) was its own oasis during its Community Open House on June 22. While heavy rain and flooding hit surrounding areas, LOTT saw clear blue sky and sunshine until its closing hour when clouds rolled in. It provided a clear window of opportunity for fun and enjoyment for the 100

guests of all ages who visited the camp for a free barbecue and to try out the many activities offered there. Camp director Tom McIntosh says the waterfront and its giant “Blob” water toy was a big attraction, with many of the adults giving it a try and having a lot of fun. The climbing wall, and pellet gun and archery ranges also saw a great deal of action. “It seemed to be a really posi-

tive event that really encouraged camping constituents and firsttimers into registering their kids.” The camp received a number of registrations that day and McIntosh says spaces are still available for the summer season, as are camperships for those who need financial assistance. For more information, check out the camp’s website at www.

Put your best food forward

It’s important to start thinking about how food choices can affect your health. Small changes can pay off big by reducing your risk, and your family’s risk, for obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Interior Health’s registered dietitians have a few simple tips to help you make healthier food choices. Plan weekly meals Spend a few minutes before you shop and plan your meals for the week; it’s one of the best ways to save money and time. “Looking at recipes, reading flyers, and checking your kitchen inventory can help you decide what meals you would like to prepare and what you will need to prepare them,” says registered dietitian Alexis Blueschke. “When you have all the ingredients you need to make a healthy meal at home, you will be less tempted to go

out for dinner or order take-out.” Use a shopping list Once you know what meals you are going to eat, you are ready to make a grocery shopping list. Grow own food Many have heard the saying, “Healthy eating begins at the grocery store.” While this is true, it’s important to remember that healthy eating can also begin with a visit to your local farmers’ market, and you can also grow your own food. Eat together Meal time is an excellent time to connect as a family. Make the most of meal times by turning off the TV, phones and other distracting electronics. Families that eat together are healthier and happier. Children who have meals with their families eat more vegetables and fruits and are less likely to abuse alcohol or drugs.

Stand Out!

battles daily with the difficulties of caring for her youngest, Ayzac Wilson, as he goes through final life stages with a rare genetic disease, RMND1 mitochondrial disease. Ayzac is the only known living child with the terminal illness, which is expected to end his life within the next 12 months. “He’s fragile, and even small things like a cold could be devastating for him,” his mom says, adding her son’s kidneys are failing. “Each day is a blessing.” Unknown to her, Shipley was nominated by her mother, as a Mother’s Day gift. She says community support for her and Ayzac, in general, has been very strong and she is extremely grateful. She has moved to

the Lower Mainland in order to provide Ayzac with the medical services he requires now more than ever. While trying to maintain a normal life for her other two children, she also attends nursing school, which she is doing because she was inspired by her ailing son. In addition, she is doing a documentary and interviews for magazines to spread awareness of rare diseases. Shipley was chosen from among more than 24,000 nominations for Mom of the Year, and if declared the winner, will get $100,000 for the charity of her choice and $10,000 for herself. “It’s already such a huge honour and I’m in awe that I’m among these great women.

Being in the top 20 is huge.” Shipley has chosen Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Vancouver as her intended recipient, as Ayzac is a frequent guest at the facility where he goes for symptom management. He has stays of up to five days, which offers his mom much needed respite. Currently, voting is underway on the Internet for the top 8 finalists, who will each receive a minimum of $10,000 for their charity and $10,000 for themselves. Voting takes place until Aug. 1, 2013 at momoftheyear. ca, where you can read Shipley’s heartwrenching story. The candidate with the most votes automatically earns a

spot in the top 8, and another seven will be chosen by a selection committee from among the remaining 19 semifinalists. Shipley notes Canadian singersongwriter Chantal Kreviazuk is a member of the selection committee. Only one vote is

allowed per person and a Facebook account is necessary. The eight finalists will be announced the week of Aug. 6 and the winner will be named on the weekend of Oct. 5-7 at a red carpet gala dinner in Toronto. Shipley is currently in the top 3 of the vote count.
