British Columbia Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford have collaborated to appoint a resource export market working group. In establishing the working group, the premiers identified a shared goal of opening new markets and expanding export opportunities for oil, gas and other resources. It will be led by the two top energy officials from each province to develop recommendations to grow energy exports and open new export markets, and present them to the premiers later this year. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says she thinks the premiers’ cooperative plan is a “good step forward.” “Canada is an energy exporter in many ways. The more we can work together to benefit all of us, I think the better off we are.” She adds unless the provinces collaborate, they won’t accomplish their goals in the end and bring new revenue streams to Western Canada. “It is extremely important to expand markets for our

energy and our resource industries. That’s what has built the country and the province.” Behind the working group scheme, however, is a move to improve a strained relationship between the country’s two westernmost premiers, as well as toward more resource development. Clark stated as much to media when she and Redford announced the working group at the conclusion of the Council of the Federation meeting at Niagara-on-theLake on July 26. Clark and Redford have “bumped heads” on several occasions over resource issues, most notably Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline project proposed to run crude oil (bitumen) through B.C. from the Alberta border to Kitimat. Says Barnett: “I find this a good start to mending fences. But, I do know the premier is not going to go off her stance on the Enbridge ‘five commitments’. “Now, we’ll have to wait and see the report these staff members are going to provide us with, and hopefully there are some positive recommendations in there that help both provinces.”

South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) vice-president Leon Chretien was one of the local businessmen who addressed the panel at the general hearings. The overall SCCC perspective - put forward

by Chretien and director Rick Takagi - was that economic diversification is needed to alleviate the pressure on local forestry, tourism and ranching industries. However, Chretien says he mostly spoke about cultural perspectives. “I come from a First Nations background (from my great-grandmother), as well as a French background that actually dates back to the mid-1600s [in Canada]. “So, I was just building the fact that we all come Continued on 4

Canada “closed” by Embassy, visa backlogs Carole Rooney Free Press

Tourism stakeholders across Canada are outraged after learning foreign travellers are being turned away from entering the country. The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) recently obtained an example of Canadian Embassy officials having told people, in writing, not to travel to Canada. After ongoing job action has slowed down the process of issuing visitor visas at Canadian missions abroad, TIAC got its hands on a copy of a written response sent by Immigration Section at the Canadian Embassy in Bogota, Colombia. TIAC says the document instructs those requesting Canadian visitor visas to take their business elsewhere. Translated, the text of message from the Embassy apparently states: “for your information, Canadian External Service officials are presently on strike. All Canadian visa offices in the world are working with reduced capacity and the processing times of visa requests are uncertain for the moment. As such we recommend that you look at other options for your trip that do not include a stop in Canada.” Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association (CCCTA) president Pat Corbett says the problem has been “brewing away” for a couple of years, but worsened earlier this year. “Our embassies and visa offices have not kept up with the demand to the point where they have actually been suggesting [people stay away].” “It has impacted our industry, for sure, and with the strike full-on now, it’s pretty cata-

strophic. It just compounds the difficulties in the Canadian tourism industry right now.” Corbett adds he has asked Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod and others to try to “grab hold” of the issue and bring it to resolution. “It’s not good for the Canadian economy overall and its something that needs a solution rapidly.” TIAC wants to see an end to “stand-off tactics from both sides” and instead have public discussion of back-to-work legislation or allowances for replacement workers to process visa applications. It estimates that the cost of the ongoing strike to the Canadian travel and tourism sector will be upwards of $280 million this year, and further losses in spinoff economic gains. Corbett says the CCCTA has been watching the issue unfold for months now with “extreme concern” expressed across the regional industry. He notes TIAC is the industry’s “national advocacy voice” that got involved when it heard reports of problems with visa applications. “It was the people on the ground that TIAC was responding to, and trying to deal with this behind the scenes with government, and that started some time ago.” Now, the CCCTA president says there are various senate members and cabinet ministers pursuing a resolution in Ottawa, including British Columbia’s own Senator Nancy Greene Raine. However, as concerns continue to escalate while the strike continues, Corbett hopes more people will write letters to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and copy them to McLeod.

ARMS AMNESTY

The Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds made a brief, but dazzling appearance in the skies over 100 Mile House just after 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 1. Those who had the chance to see them were captivated by the two-minute aerobatic show, and many who did not see it likely heard them roar by.

B.C.’s month-long gun amnesty in June resulted in 1,801 firearms, 155 other weapons and approximately 30,700 rounds of ammunition handed over to police for destruction throughout the province. Some of the interesting items turned in included a machine gun received by Kelowna RCMP, bayonets from the 1800s given to Ridge Meadows RCMP, and other historical firearms including a Lee-Enfield .303 rifle from World War II and a military missile more than six feet long.

B.C. debt, deficit climbs higher Public accounting reveals fiscal results

Carole Rooney Free Press

Finance minister Michael de Jong recently released the 2012-13 Public Accounts, revealing British Columbia ended the fiscal year with a deficit of $1.15 billion. That is an increase of $182 million from last year’s government forecast of $968 million. While de Jong explains spending controls brought about in mid-2012 helped the province reduce total spending by $668 million, revenues were $1.1 billion lower than projected in Budget 2012, mainly due to declining revenues in various

Barnett says she does not believe there is any hidden debt. Doyle is “diligent” in his audits and hasn’t issued any recent concerns about disclosure, she adds. “The auditor general does a fine job. I don’t know of there has been more disclosure, but I would think so, or [Doyle] would bring it out in every report.”

She explains in contractual dealings with the private sector, Canada’s Privacy Act makes is necessary to be “very careful,” as it leaves a fine line between what can or cannot can be disclosed. Meanwhile, she says new revenue sources will be crucial in order

for the province to stay on track in its plan to balance the budget. “We have no idea what is going to happen in the global economy. The global market dictates the economy. “This is why we need more industry markets in Asia and elsewhere across the ocean.”

Tax referendum meetings slated

20-50off

Public polled on Search and Rescue funding

Carole Rooney Free Press

Public information meetings are coming up soon where the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) will provide more details and field questions on the South Cariboo Search and Rescue (SAR) referendum scheduled this fall. The referendum will ask voters if they approve of a bylaw for the CRD to provide annual funding of up to $30,000 to the local SAR society for its services in the community. SAR search manager Val Severin says the funding is much needed as its current donations, fundraising and Community Gaming Grants are not regular. This can leave them short on funds, but also

provides little advance notice for planning. “The funding will allow us to plan our equipment and training to provide stability to ensure we can meet the training and equipment needs to fulfill our role in the community.” Examples of difficulties from the lack of a stable funding source include when a half dozen members all have training certificates expiring the following year, or the majority of rescue ropes will reach their allowable life span, but there are no assurances the money will be there for the training and replacements, she explains. Without that stability, SAR can’t effectively plan for its members to be re-certified, which Severin notes is required to enable them to respond to specific

vice these hard-working volunteers provide is available whenever it is needed in the community. The currently planned 2014 tax requisition for this service is $25,000 total, or $1.03 per $100,000 of assessed property values overall, but a residential taxpayer would pay $0.84 per $100,000 of assessed value. However, these tax requisition calculations are estimated (based on 2013), as assessed values for 2014 are not yet available. At the maximum tax rate, the CRD indicates a residential taxpayer would expect to pay about $1.08 per $100,000 of assessed

value for residential land and improvements. In 100 Mile House, the meeting is on Aug. 14 at the District Council Chambers. In Area L, it will be held on Aug. 15 at the Interlakes (Roe Lake) Community Hall. The meeting for Area H residents is slated for Aug. 20 at the Forest Grove Community Hall, and for Area G, it is Aug. 21 at the 108 Mile Community Hall. All of the public meetings will run from 5:30 -7 p.m. Scrutineers are also being sought for this referendum. For more information on the meetings or scrutineer applications, visit the CRD website at www.cariboord.bc.ca.

Wildfires effectively aided by air

Fire retardant is often used by air tankers and helicopters to fight wildfires in British Columbia, but some folks may not know what it is, or what it does. The retardant is a water-soluble mix made with fertilizer as the principal retardant agent. The red colour comes from the iron oxide (rust) added to the solution so pilots and firefighters see where it has been applied. Israel Chemicals Ltd. (ICL) manufactures flame-retardants in Kamloops, where about a dozen employees produce Phos-chek for the Ministry of Forest’s Wildfire Management Branch, which is its main consumer. When Phos-chek reacts with wildland fuels, such as wood and grass, it reduces the heat and intensity of flames to slow the spread and allow firefighters on the ground to better con-

tain the fire. ICL Kamloops also provides Phos-chek to fire centres in Alberta and the Yukon. While the retardant is absorbed by plants, any retardant that lands on houses, cars, or other materials should be washed off as soon as possible. When it is still wet, as it is when dispersed from the air, it is readily rinsed off with

water. If it has already dried, removing it may require some scrubbing or power washing with water and a mild detergent. Although there are no significant hazards associated with the liquid concentrates or mixed retardant solutions, all attempts are made to keep retardant out of known water sources. If you have any questions about that, contact

your local forests ministry fire centre’s aviation specialist. Air tanker planes Air tankers have two key roles during firefighting – initial attack and support. During initial attacks, these planes drop fire retardant (and/or foam) directly onto small fires, or often just ahead of the fire, to control its spread until ground

crews arrive to extinguish them. For large wildfires, air tankers support firefighting efforts by dropping retardant directly onto the fire to limit the spread and cool hot spots. Usually stationed in groups of up to four aircraft with a spotter plane, the air tankers have a combined capacity of up to 15,000 litres, although a single heavy aircraft can hold more than 11,000 litres. The spotter plane works ahead of the air tankers to safely and efficiently direct them towards the highest priority fires. The use of air tankers is directed by the operations personnel, so when folks see a wildfire, but don’t see any air tankers, it may be that current strategies call for ground operations rather than air support. Their use can also be limited by factors, such as time of day, fire

Garden surplus for hungry families Summer food donations needed urgently

Carole Rooney Free Press

The South Cariboo Food Security Committee has put out a plea for food donations to support the hungry families and individuals in need this summer. The committee is working on finding and developing ways to improve food security in the South Cariboo for both the short term and the longterm. Both local gardeners with extra produce in their plots, and the general public through non-perishable donations are being asked to help with this food crisis. Committee member Rita Giesbrecht says children, youth and families are challenged daily in having enough to eat, especially nutritious food. The numbers of families at need in the community is increasing, she explains, as the committee is working to support the organizations that provide emergency food. “Part of our mandate is to improve the food and the quality of food for the families at risk.” These agencies are reporting a huge need, Giesbrecht says, adding providing this food isn’t their main function, but rather a role they have fallen into.

Bank closes and reverts to its summer emergency service, and the children are out of school for the break, this becomes especially difficult, she notes. “We are told that the need has reached crisis proportions. Exacerbating the problem is the closure of the food bank in summer months, and the absence of school lunch programs.” Families depend on community programs and school breakfasts and lunches for providing or supplementing meals, so there are fewer sources of food for those who need them. Folks can help by dropping off non-perishables, vegetables or fruit at other local service organizations that depend on those contributions to help fill the summertime gap. Public donations are needed for food programs at Loaves and Fishes, 100 Mile & District Women’s Centre and Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre with

non-perishable donations, such as tuna, pasta, spaghetti sauce and beans. Fresh produce from gardens can be dropped off at Loaves and Fishes on Wednesdays and Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre on Thursdays, or at the AgriCulture Enterprise Centre (call all ahead for hours). Local families appreciate and need fruit and vegetables for healthy meals and snacks, as good nutrition can set them onto the right path to wellness. Those of us who have no difficulty in eating regularly might consider reaching out to those who don’t, Giesbrecht says. “This problem is absolutely fixable.

Let’s prevent wildfires

Railway safety off the track

Eight years ago, I was between teaching contracts, so I decided to work as a labourer on a railway track maintenance and repair crew in the Williams Lake and 100 Mile House areas. I learned how common train derailments are. In that brief period, I had been called to half a dozen repair jobs and one serious derailment that was something of an emergency. I heard about a man who had been killed in Williams Lake a few years earlier because a derailment had caused a railway car to fall on top of him. Whenever a train went by, the entire crew stood well back. I thought about how many derailments and deadly accidents and potential accidents there must have been in the entire country, given the number of towns and cities that had grown up around railway lines in Canada, including 100

GUEST SHOT

ugust is typically the busiest month of the year for wildfires in British Columbia. With the extremely dry July we have experienced this year, we all have to be careful in the forests and interface areas. When the campfire ban was finally put in place at the beginning of this month, it signalled the fire danger ratings jumping up throughout much of the Cariboo. Now, we have to be extremely vigilant by making sure folks know there is a campfire ban in place if we see them burning one. Smokers also need to be very careful with their cigarettes and other smoking materials, which have to be completely extinguished. At the same time, Mother Nature has tossed a few thousand lightning strikes at us recently and they have sparked several new, but small, wildfires. The largest of these naturally occurring fires in the Cariboo Fire Centre (CFC) zone was 0.2 hectare. Fortunately, the accompanying precipitation helped keep the fires small and also helped move the fire danger rating down to moderate throughout most of the CFC region. However, there were areas of low ratings in the western portion of the region and high in the northern and eastern areas of the region. Thunderstorms were also in the forecast throughout the long weekend and there was a 30 per cent chance of them occurring yesterday and today. While the accompanying rainfall or showers dampen the ground cover, it doesn’t take long for it to evaporate and then we’re back to tinder dry conditions. There is little we can do about these natural wildfires, but there were a half dozen human-caused fires during the same timeframe. This is where the general public can stop wildfires from occurring through preventive measures. There is no open burning or campfires allowed in our area, so we should not be lighting them, but we should be vigilant about making sure our cigarettes are crushed out. If we see family, friends and neighbours carrying out prohibited burning or carelessly tossing out lit cigarettes, we should remind them of the dangers. If we don’t have that friendly talk, then we’re culpable and deserving of blame as if we’re actually participating in the act. To report a wildfire, prohibited campfire or open burning, call 1-800-663-5555 toll free or *5555 on our cell phones. Anyone caught breaking a fire ban can be fined $345. If the fire escapes and causes a wildfire, the person who caused it may be convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and sentenced to one year in jail.

major safety overhaul, but all the government would do is “recommend” the installation of audio and video recorders. Both Conservative and Liberal governments share some of the blame for this disaster. Although I appreciate the general logic of moving away from heavy reliance on prescriptive rules and toward more economically efficient “results-based” regulation and “self-regulation,” it’s evident this approach didn’t automatically adjust safety standards to meet the added risk entailed by the huge recent increase in oil traffic. The government should have increased the safety budget instead of cutting it, and should have returned to Transport Canada the oversight of rail safety that the Liberals had removed in 1999.

Vote for recreation bylaw changes Sept. 7 To the editor: As chair of the 100 Mile House & District Soccer Association, I urge people to vote in favour of the changes to Recreation Bylaw 4837 on Sept. 7. The facilities referenced in Peter Reid’s July 31 letter benefit the entire South Cariboo, and this change will help ensure they continue to operate. The current bylaw is limited to providing funding for the arena, the curling rink and the ball fields.

Under the new wording, all recreational and arts/culture services in the South Cariboo, including Martin Exeter Hall and the soccer fields, would fall under the bylaw. More than 80% of the soccer players registered to play this year live outside the District boundary, and most attendees at Martin Exeter Hall events are from outside the District. Why should taxpayers within town have to pay 100% of the costs

for facilities that are used by the greater population? As for Mr. Reid’s assertion that the District could contract out the maintenance of the soccer fields for “considerably less,” he is deliberately ignoring the fact the District’s collective agreement prevents this option, unless their staff is unaffected. There are qualified people on staff, and the District cannot contract out that work. Mr. Reid and I have both attend-

Run-of-river hydro projects pack a punch

To the editor: I’m glad to see that California is finally taking steps to classify hydroelectric energy from British Columbia as 100 per cent renewable. In a wet, mountainous place like B.C. there is nothing more renewable than the water that continually drops from our skies as snow and rain. In fact, that’s why more than 90 per cent of the electricity produced in B.C. is hydroelectric. In California, where the climate is dry and mostly desert-like, hydroelectric energy is not nearly as plentiful or as easy to tap into as it is in B.C. Because of this fact, any hydroelectric-generating facility in California that can generate 30 megawatts or more of electricity is not considered to be a renewable energy resource.

To generate that much hydroelectric energy in California you need a sizable dam and vast areas of land need to be flooded. In B.C., however, as California legislators are starting to realize, generating 30 megawatts or more of electricity can easily be achieved by a small runof-river facility with nothing more than a small head pond and an inflatable weir. Run-of-river facilities pack an incredible clean energy punch and have one of the smallest physical and environmental footprints of any type of energy generation. It’s good that California is finally starting to realize this about B.C. generated hydroelectricity. Charles Davis White Rock

ed joint committee meetings on this subject. As stated at those meetings, once capital upgrades have been completed at the hall, its operating costs will be far less than the $230,000 he believes they’ll pay for it to stay open. The goal is not to pay out all of that money for just the soccer fields and the hall – the long-term vision is to pay for more programs. We provide a soccer program for over 400 local youth annually.

The cost to pay the entire $70,000 in operating costs would increase our fees by at least $175 per child annually. We have worked hard to help build these fields, and we are not asking for a handout. We are asking for people to think long term – these facilities are vital to keeping families in the area, and for attracting new residents. Jennifer Appleby 100 Mile House

The words we should use To the editor: A recent study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives indicated Canada’s best-paid 50 chief executive officers (CEOs) breezed through the end of the recession with earnings 235 times higher than the average Canadian income earner in 1991. For comparison, the earnings of these first 50 CEOs were 85 times higher than the average income earner in 1995. I am not sure there are words to fully express my feelings with regards to these stats. Some words, though, can help me express the reasons behind such discrepancies – words that we would need to name and repeat if we wish to put an end to such a situation. They are selfishness, contempt, cynicism, corruption, abuse and

patronage. If we want to push deeper, they are political parties financing, lobbying, propaganda, media concentration, diversion of democracy and nonworking democracy. I am sure Canadians do not only think this is unfair. An increasing

number of them must also realize that only an equal sharing of powers – which is what would be a real democracy – would lead us towards an equal wealth sharing. Bruno Marquis Gatineau, Quebec

Get borrowing under control To the editor: I am writing regarding Tom Fletcher’s column, headlined Get ready for Hydro rate hikes, in the July 10 edition of the 100 Mile House Free Press. Yes, the BC Hydro rate increase tsunami is coming after the earthquake of British Columbia government debt. This will hit lower income people – hard. All levels of government are

increasing fees and service rates rather than raise income taxes on those who can contribute more and pay more property tax. I don’t want to see any drastic action to increase job loss, but governments at all levels need to limit their spending growth to the level of inflation and get borrowing under control.

BC VIEWS

The ceremonies have become common at the B.C. legislature. Government officials and aboriginal leaders gather to celebrate resource sharing agreements that allow economic development in areas that need employment but are hampered by a century of uncertainty and dispute over treaties, or lack thereof. This approach emerged a decade ago with forest agreements. The B.C. Liberal government bought back timber cutting licences from big forest firms and made them available for community forests and aboriginal communities who claimed the areas as their traditional territories. Recently the approach was extended to mining revenues and water licence fees paid by private power developers. These are substantial steps forward for the only province in Canada in treaty limbo.

problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace, one of many communities struggling to get through the B.C. treaty negotiation process. That agreement included a joint landuse plan. Then the Environmental Assessment Office asked the Gitanyow for its input on proposed gas pipelines through its territory, to feed the government’s liquefied natural gas plans. Again, the joint land-use plan has no provision for pipelines. The Gitanyow hereditary chiefs wrote to the B.C. government in July, threatening to go to court over the pipeline proposal and questioning the value of their hard-won reconciliation agreement. Resource revenue sharing agreements and shared land-use plans are wellintentioned and represent real progress. But these situations show how fragile they are.

the province Youth allegedly killed by tainted ecstacy KELOWNA - Marissa Ginter’s online footprint shows a young woman who enjoyed hanging out with friends, music and graffiti artwork The parents of a 17-year-old youth who died Friday (Aug. 2) after allegedly ingesting tainted ecstasy are not speaking publicly about her death. Marissa Ginter was first identified in the media by a friend’s parent as being among a group of three youth whose story RCMP went public with in order to warn others tainted drugs are possibly circulating on Kelowna streets. A statement released Friday morning said the youths—initially identified as a 15, 16 and 18-yearold—had been admitted to hospital with severe gastrointestinal issues and itching from what RCMP believe to be a bad batch of ecstacy. “There have been others with similar experiences after consuming street drugs recently,” said Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Kris Clark hours before Centre of Gravity brought thousands of youth into the downtown core. Ginter’s obituary indicates she died the same day the warning was issued.

Student found guilty in pool-cue assault KAMLOOPS -A Thompson Rivers University international student has been found guilty of assault and assault with a weapon in relation to a pool-cue stabbing incident at a Kamloops bar last year that left his friend with permanent brain damage. Yousef Mohammed Almotairi, a 26-year-old TRU student from Saudi Arabia, was convicted in B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday, July 31, following a trial that lasted more than a week. Almotairi was at Cactus Jack’s Saloon in the earlymorning hours of Nov. 3, 2012, with a 28-year-old friend who was also a Saudi TRU student. The two became involved in an argument and Almotairi attacked his friend with a pool cue, jabbing it into his eye. The cue entered the victim’s brain. He suffered permanent brain damage and is now partially paralyzed.

They were just as good as ever. We saw them every day for about five years when I was posted at CFB Moosejaw. The Snowbirds’ hangar was right behind our PMQ (Private Married Quarters).

I would say that’s real Canadian tradition, and I think it’s a great thing for 100 Mile House.

It was great, really good. I’ve seen them before in Comox and in Vancouver a couple of times, and I always enjoy it. Many years ago, my niece was dating one of the Snowbird pilots. I don’t know if they are still together or not.

We both enjoyed it. We just moved here, and think it was cool they’d come around for a small town. We read about it in the 100 Mile Free Press the other day, so we came out to wait and watch for them to arrive.

100 Mile House RCMP busy on Highway 97 during the long weekend

Police

report 100 Mile RCMP responded to 98 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Speeders caught The long weekend highways in the 100 Mile House Detachment area were busy and numerous violation tickets for speeding were issued. Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services charged eight people during the weekend for excessive speed. Each of

these cases resulted in the driver receiving a $368 fine along with a seven-day vehicle impoundment. Two vehicles were found to be uninsured, resulting in $598 fines. Prohibited and speeding On Aug. 5, 100 Mile House RCMP were conducting radar enforcement on Highway 97 south of 100 Mile House when a vehicle was clocked at 136 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. When the vehicle was pulled over, the driver was determined to be

prohibited from driving under the Motor Vehicle Act. As a result, he was issued an appearance notice for court in 100 Mile House on Oct. 1. The driver also received a $196 fine for speeding and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. Vehicle rammed repeatedly On Aug. 3, two women were travelling in a vehicle on Timothy Lake Road headed toward Lac la Hache when they were struck from behind by a vehicle that was tailgat-

ing them. They stopped the vehicle to speak to the male driver, who they initially thought was someone else. When they did not recognize the suspect, they locked their doors and left the scene. The suspect driver followed them as they turned south on Highway 97 towards 100 Mile House and then began ramming into the rear of their vehicle. They were hit approximately six times. 100 Mile RCMP intercepted both vehicles near the intersection of

Canim-Hendrix Lake Road on Highway 97. The male suspect driver displayed symptoms of intoxication. He was detained for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and impaired driving. He began to resist and was then subdued and taken into custody. Upon arrival at the 100 Mile House Detachment, the male refused to co-operate and refused to provide a breath sample. He was held in custody until sober the next morning as he continued to display violent behaviour.

CRD hears land-use strategy

CRD

briefs The following is a highlights from the July 12 Cariboo Regional District (CRD) regular board meeting:

Land-use strategy Cariboo Licensees Land Use Strategy Committee (CLLUSC) chair Guenter Weckerle and project leader Keith Dufresne appeared before the board to speak about the Mid-Term Timber Supply Project underway by the

Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Their presentation provided an overview of the regional impacts of the MidTerm Timber Supply shortages following the pine beetle infestation and devastation, some

supply timelines for the industry and plans for a science-based review process. Weckerle also provided a snapshot of CLLUSC observations and recommendations as well as encouragement for the CRD to engage in the sciencebased review process.

Fire ban clarified 1-800-222-TIPS On July 26, Police responded to a complaint from BJ’s Donuts & Eatery in downtown 100 Mile House concerning a mischief that occurred. Vandals spray-painted graffiti all over the bricks on the back of the building, causing considerable damage, as it is likely the brick will need to be painted over. The 100 Mile RCMP requests public assistance with information leading to the identification of suspects in this matter. Sometime over the past week, unknown culprits pried open the front door of a business in the 400 block of Birch Avenue and stole approximately $250 out of the cash float from a till inside. Nothing else was taken from inside the business. If you have any information on this or any other crimes in the 100 Mile House area call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Your identity will remain unknown. Should your information lead to the arrest of the responsible party Crime Stoppers will pay cash for the TIP.

Further to the information bulletin issued July 30, the campfire ban that came into effect at noon on Aug. 1 is for the southern portion of the Cariboo Fire Centre only. Specifically, the campfire ban boundary starts from the west at Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, follows the Quesnel-Chilcotin/ Central Cariboo forest districts boundary, heads east to Highway 97, south to 150 Mile House, east again along the Redeaux Lake Forest Service Road (2300 Road), and then follows the Central Cariboo-100 Mile House forest districts boundary to Wells Gray Provincial Park. A map of the area covered by the campfire ban is available online at www.ow.ly/ntHwv.

Areas where the campfire ban is in effect include the Chilcotin, McLeese Lake, Williams Lake, 150 Mile House, 100 Mile House and Interlakes regions. This ban applies to open fires of any size, campfires, industrial or backyard burning, fireworks, tiki torches, sky lanterns and burning barrels. The open burning prohibition put into place on April 15 remains in effect for the entire Cariboo Fire Centre and applies to any type of industrial or backyard burning, including waste, slash, stubble or grass. Areas under the open burning prohibition, but not the campfire ban, include the Nazko, Quesnel, Wells, Barkerville and Likely/ Horsefly regions.

Both the campfire ban and open burning prohibition do not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or to portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating that uses briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, as long as the height of the flame is less than 15 centimetres.

He was released from custody on a promise to appear in 100 Mile House court for Criminal Code charges of Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle; Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample; Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle; and Resisting Arrest. The male was also

charged under the Motor Vehicle Act for Failing to Produce a Driver’s Licence and for Driving Contrary to Restrictions. There was minor damage to the complaint’s vehicle from the repeated contact. The women were not injured as a result of this incident.

Disease (COPD). “This can save them from having to actually be intubated and on a ventilator - it’s kind of the step before.” The bipap differs significantly from an oxygen mask, but she says it basically pressurizes and regulates the patient’s airflow. “That’s one of the benefits of it, it is noninvasive. It’s just the mask that they put on, and it helps with their breathing. It gives them a rest because they are not fighting to [breathe].” Preventing or delaying intubation is a main goal of the hospital

nurses, she explains, but they also really like the Bipap because it’s easy to use. “As soon as we intubate someone and put them on a ventilator, we have to send them out. They can’t stay in 100 Mile, they need to go to an ICU [Intensive Care Unit].” Usually COPD is related to emphysema and some breathing disorders resulting from heavy smoking, but Boyd adds the Bipap is also sometimes used in cases of acute pneumonia.

Farmers’ market coupons expand

The provincial government is providing another $2-million in

funding for the expansion of the Farmers’ Market Nutrition

Carole Rooney photo

The South Cariboo Farmers’ Market is a very popular place to pick up fresh, locally-grown vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs and herbs in the community.

Coupon Program. Locally, program participants include the South Cariboo Farmers’ Market and the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre’s (CFEC) Cooking & Skill Building Program. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says the funding is intended to provide lower-income families and seniors in 100 Mile House and across the province with better access to locally-grown produce and other food products to support improved healthy eating. “The Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program allows seniors and families to buy quality local food, which is great for them, and is good for our farmers as well.

Barkerville, BC Saturday & Sunday august 10 and 11, 2013

“I’m very happy to see this program expanded to 100 Mile House.” The coupon program runs July-October 2013 and is administered by the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets. It offers individuals and families enrolled in nutrition and skills building programs $15

worth of coupons each week, distributed by community agencies partnering with participating local markets. Coupons are treated like cash and can be used to purchase a variety of local food products including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, dairy

and herbs. The 2013 funding is being provided through the Provincial Health Services Authority and builds on an initial $2 million investment in 2012. The South Cariboo Farmers’ Market takes place at Birch Avenue at Third Street each Friday

from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. until Sept. 27. For more information on CFEC programs, call 250-395-5155 or visit www.cariboofamily.org. To learn more about the Farmers’ Market Nutrition and Coupon Program, go to www. bcfarmersmarket.org.

Ski hill gets spruce-up

Snow is still a few months away but Mt. Timothy Ski Society board members and other volunteers were on the mountain on July 20 and 21, clearing runs and cleaning up for next season. A huge time-saver was the donated use of an all-terrain mower and a brush saw. Both implements came from Performance All

Terrain in 100 Mile House after co-owner Jim Kirby caught wind of the work bee, says hill manager Adam Piccolo. “When Jim found out what we were doing, he donated the stuff. The mower was amazing and we got quite a bit accomplished.” He adds, normally the work is done by hired staff using swing saws, but there wasn’t

money in the current budget for that. A big expense on the horizon for Mt. Timothy is payment for shortening and re-splicing of the chairlift cable which must be done before the beginning of next season. Piccolo says it’s a regular maintenance procedure which was last done in 2007. He explains, the cable nor-

Chamber manager wants to see growth Colene Hume: local businesses have to diversify to grow

The South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) has a new manager. Colene Hume has taken over the position recently vacated by Angela Cole who has moved on to Dawson Creek with her family. Having lived in 100 Mile House for 30 years, Hume says she raised two children here, a daughter, 17, and a 26-year-old son who has a young family, including her first grandchild. When her daughter was young, Hume says she volunteered with the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre and twice organized dinnerand-auction events for

its parent participation pre-school. She also volunteered for the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre Society, More recently, she has worked as a certified dental assistant for the past eight years.

Hume says she has “a vested interest” in the community as she wants to continue living here. One of her goals in her new role with the SCCC is to see the community grow and thrive, she explains, so more young families and youth will stay, rather than leaving to find more opportunities. Hume wants 100 Mile House to have “small-town appeal with big-town access” to amenities. “We have to have diversity in our businesses. We can’t rely on one business [for each product or service].” The SCCC works

toward this objective through the programs it offers to help businesses find the tools they need to open and then develop and expand, she says. “In my opinion, that’s what the chamber is all about. Let’s bring people in to the community. “When the people come, then businesses will grow, and new businesses will start up.” She adds the chamber also offers networking and a wealth of business information for companies and entrepreneurs to “dip into” for general business knowledge and government grants. Meanwhile, Hume

There is an older model at the local hospital, and Boyd notes she has worked with other Bipaps in the past, but this updated model is the best she’s used. “These masks are more comfortable for the patient. Bipaps can be really uncomfortable - they can cover your whole face, they can be claustrophobic.” SCHF co-ordinator

M-J Cousins says when SCHF accumulates funds for equipment purchases, each proposal is first developed by senior Interior Health managers at the hospital. Once they approve it in principal, it then goes to the Cariboo-Chilcotin Regional Hospital District (CCRHD) board for the go-ahead for joint funding. “Our shopping list is pre-approved by the time it comes to the

foundation board.” Any SCHF hospital equipment purchases over $5,000 are made with 60 per cent of its own funds, she explains, and 40 per cent CCRHD funding. The Bipap purchase cost of $24,063 was covered by a charitable community member’s anonymous donation

of $14,438 and CCRHD funding of $9,625. “The health foundation is extremely grateful to the anonymous donor who made this equipment purchase possible. This is not her first anonymous donation, we got another big piece of equipment from her before. It is very generous.”

Year-end trip filled with adventure By Monika Paterson

L

ac la Hache Elementary students, staff and some parents travelled by bus for five days to Drumheller, Alberta in late June. Along the way the made numerous stops, including The Enchanted Forest in Revelstoke, Reptile World and the Calgary Zoo before arriving at their main destination; the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. Climbing aboard their chartered coach, the excitement level of the students was extremely high, as they were finally on their way, says school Parents Advisory Council (PAC) member Bev Fry. The Enchanted Forest in Revelstoke was the first stop on the journey and the students loved it. There was so much to see and take in. Parent Melissa Fortin says the students got the opportunity to run around and experience many different fairy tale characters, including the Little Old Lady in the Shoe and from the yellow brick road in the Wizard of Oz to the Three Little Bears. At the end of the forest there were baby ducks and rainbow trout they could feed. They drove on to Golden and camped at a local campsite. The weather was wonderful and they were off to a great start. It was a busy night getting the tents set up and the children’s excitement was

wso high it took awhile for them all to get to bed. The next day was a long one of travelling, as we made one stop just outside of Calgary to eat lunch and then it was off to Drumheller. They arrived at their destination around 3 p.m. and then took in Reptile World. PAC president Jennifer Tanner says everyone had a chance to hold Brittany, the 19-year-old boa

constrictor. She adds it was a bit scary for the parents to watch. They also got to meet Fred the 600-pound alligator, and learned about many other reptiles and animals, including crocodiles, lizards and frogs. Fry notes that night they were suppose to camp out in Drumheller, but a wicked storm blew in and they were told there was a tornado warning 60 kilo-

metres away. It was a bit scary, she adds, so they ended up renting a local community hall for the night. The next day they were off to the Royal Tyrrell Museum. “Awesome” is the only word that describes the museum, says Fry. The students loved it and were able to take a couple of courses, one about raptors and another on fossil casting, she adds.

After the day at the museum they were off to their next campsite for the night, just outside of Calgary. The weather was great and they set up tents and had supper. Everyone was done for the night and settled in, Fry says. Around midnight, however, they had a major thunder and lightning storm hit. It rained so hard that three out of the six tents started to leak. So by 1 a.m., the bus driver was called to come and pick up some of the teachers, parents and students who were soaked, and took them off to a local motel, she notes. “It was just another life experience.” The next day, they went to the Calgary Zoo. Despite short periods of rain, it didn’t dampen the student’s excitement or enthusiasm to explore, Fry says, adding they saw many different species of animals, including hippos, tigers and gorillas. They didn’t camp that evening due to all the rain, so they stayed at the Dalhousie Community Centre. The next day they were supposed to travel to Revelstoke and visit the Railway Museum, but the bus was stopped and turned around because

the road had just been closed due to flooding. They had to change their travel plans once more due to all the flooding. They received word from the Dr. Duncan Murray Recreation Centre in Hinton, Alta., that they were more than happy to put them up for the night at no charge. The Lac la Hache group was also given two hours of free swimming at the pool with lifeguards. Tanner says they were also pleasantly surprised with a huge batch of cookies from the local secondary students. “A big thank you goes to the community of Hinton for their open arms and generosity.” Despite the weather, being turned around twice and having to change plans and just missing the flooding in Alberta, the students had a great time and memorable experience, she adds. It was so much more than just going on a year-end field trip, says Fry. “It was learning life lessons and how total strangers touched all of us by their giving and loving spirit of the human heart. Life lessons speak volumes.”

Family murder revisited Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

In 1959, a terrible double murder took place near the small Kootenay community of Fruitvale, leaving Kent Townsend and his two sons without a wife and mother. Alison Townsend MacNicol, his daughter from a later marriage, and now a resident of 100 Mile House, teamed up with her childhood friend and author, Brian T. Seifrit, to bring the story to print in their book, A Bloodstained Hammer. The incident took place on the family hog farm where a hired hand took care of day-to-day tasks while Kent worked at a smelter in Trail. The book describes the many problems, including excessive drinking, which plagued the farm hand due to his limited intelligence. One night, in a fit of drunken rage, the hand rapes and bludgeons to death Kent’s wife and eight-year-old daughter, Emily, while their young boys, Richard and Jack stay safe in another room. The hand steals the family car and

flees, only to be caught shortly after when he boards a ferry. The story explains how he uses an insanity defense to lighten his sentence and the long-lasting effect the entire ordeal had on the family. Kent continued to live in the same house and eventually married a nanny he’d hired to care for his boys. Alison and two sisters are a product of that marriage.

the back-burner to avoid upsetting her quiet and reserved brother Richard, who was five when the murder took place. When he passed away in 2009, she felt the time was right and contacted Seifrit, whose family lived in a neighbouring house while Alison grew up. It had been 26 years since the two last saw each other. They collaborated on the book, referring to court transcripts for the needed My parents never talked facts, but used their imaginations to about the murder, but describe life on the farm and thoughts they were always scared going through the heads of all involved. he would come back and Alison says the story of the murder is finish the rest of us off.” still alive in the Kootenays, as she was – Alison Townsend MacNicol reminded on a recent trip back to her former home for a book signing. “An older lady said she remembers When she was in Grade 7, the mur- the day completely.

CLBC project intended to expand job opportunities

Community Living British Columbia (CLBC) recently announced the Thompson-Cariboo has been selected as one of three B.C. regions to host a community pilot project focused on implementing a local employment plan and increasing job opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities who are able and want to work. The ThompsonCariboo project began in April along with regional collaborations in Central-Upper Vancouver Island and Simon Fraser regions. The communities that will participate in this regional partnership in

the Interior include 100 Mile House, Kamloops, Williams Lake, Merritt, Lytton, Lillooet and Cache Creek. The project delivers on a commitment in CLBC’s Community Action Employment Plan, released in March 2013, to establish pilot projects, which are tailored to the labour characteristics of a region, and that build on a region’s strengths. These projects are intended to identify best practices for community and sector collaboration that can be expanded to other regions of the province in 2014. The goal is to increase employment for adults

with developmental disabilities who choose to enter the program. Development of the pilot projects under the CLBC Community Action Employment Plan will help accomplish the following objectives: • Enhance co-ordination of services provided by CLBC and the Employment Program of BC. • Ensure youth and families are better prepared for employment as part of their future and streamline their transition from school to employment. • Set local employment targets – particularly for young adults transitioning to

CLBC services. • Educate employers about safeguards and benefits of hiring adults with developmental disabilities. • Celebrate inclusive employers. • Support individuals who want to work to shift from day services to employment services. • Promote collaboration among CLBC, community councils, self-advocates, families,

employers, service providers, schools, colleges and other community stakeholders. CLBC will use existing resources to support the development and implementation of the pilot projects and the Community Action Employment Plan.

Community enriched by the energy of Al Bradshaw CANIM LAKE Peter Hart 250 397-2645

harts@netbistro.com

Dear Canimites, More than a few are wearing purple fingers and a smile, as the Saskatoons ripen and the first pickable Huckleberries appear. Fishing has been good in Mahood and Canim, so has the swimming, tubing and BBQing. Ah summer! Au Revoir, Al People were saddened by news of the passing of Al Bradshaw in Chilliwack late last month. Al and wife Joyce purchased Minac Lodge on Canim Lake and packed their three young children here from Vancouver in 1971. In the hands of the outgoing couple, the lodge and its restaurant became a hub for the community. The Canim Lake Community Club was formed there, and the Lodge became the focal point for weekly cribbage play, crafts, community dinners on every occasion, ice carnivals and Halloween fireworks. These activities continue today. Don and Jean Reynolds bought a neighboring lodge in 1972. The two families became close life-long friends, the children attending the Eagle Creek School together, then Forest Grove and 100 Mile House. Don says ‘Al was a part of my everyday life. I could count on him, especially when things got difficult. When Jean and I were laid up for six weeks, he and Joyce took care of our three children as if they were their own.’

Al and Joyce Bradshaw received accolades for their many years of service to the community at a farewell gathering at the home of Dale and Bev McWilliams in the summer of 2010.

Al was a founding member of the Lions in Forest Grove, and with Joyce as his strong right arm, served as secretary for many years. Ron Lister worked with Al on many projects. Al was a ‘great talker’, says Ron. We had a joke that ‘if it wasn’t for Joyce, he’d never get anything done’. But do things he did. Encouraged by many, Al ran for CRD Area H rep and served for the next 22 years. Joyce says he took

particular pride in his involvement in the Ruth Lake campsite, and in assisting the Forest Grove, Hawkins Lake and Canim Lake fire departments to form and grow. A grant he arranged purchased the first truck for Canim Lake. Al was also instrumental in getting the library system going, shepherding its development for six years from a seat on the board. He was a great supporter of local industry

and initiative. As CRD director he was instrumental in getting natural gas out to Buffalo Creek and Forest Grove. He also served on the 108 Airport Commission. Others just say that he was a master at gently smoothing the way for people through whatever CRD process they were dealing with. Al Bradshaw, a man for others. Ponderosa rises Wolfgang and Karin Martens have brought their resort back from calamity. Two weeks before the July long weekend, heavy rains on the mountain above sent a torrent of water and rock rubble down the creek that runs through the resort. As the creek bed filled with stones, the water spilled over, carrying a heavy load of rocks and mud through the resort, even burying the lakeside picnic tables up to their seats. Now the green grass thrives in those same

A good crowd came out to the recent meeting that was held by the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) to give their feedback and voice their concerns over the changes that are happening at the Lone Butte transfer station and the Watch Lake landfill site. Local residents should have now received their mirror tags that will identify them to the attendants. Without them, you will not be able to access the Watch Lake landfill site, which also brings up concerns to where people who are turned away will deposit their refuse, hopefully not somewhere in our pristine countryside. Attendants are now in place at the sites and new hours of operation will be coming into affect on Aug. 15. There was feedback on the restricted hours of operation that will definitely leave some growing pains with local residents who have been used to dropping off their garbage at anytime of the day. These changes are leaving some residents with frustration, while others are more understanding on why these changes have to be made. Unfortunately, we have all seen this day coming for quite some time, however life is full of change and we must adjust to them sometimes. Yard sale success The newly formed Lone Butte Fire Department Auxiliary had a successful yard sale last weekend with many items being moved out of the parking lot and into homes. With everything there being sold by donation,

they were able to raise a substantial amount of cash that will go directly to the department to purchase outdated equipment and allow them to broaden their abilities in an emergency. If the proper equipment is not up to date and safe, then the department volunteers are limited in what duties they are able to perform in the event of an emergency, and that emergency could be you or your loved one. Funds are low and equipment is expensive. As an example, one set of turnout equipment for a firefighter costs approximately $3,500. Let’s not forget that the fire department members do much more than just fight fires. About 90 per cent of their calls are to be first responders to accidents on the road, or mishaps that happen in everyday life to people like you and me. Presently they have 26 active members on the fire department roster but there is still room for a few more. The training alone is well worth the once weekly Thursday night practices. With leadership skills, first responder training, first aid, fire training, auto extract and other courses available to volunteers, this makes a great resume whether you are considering a full time career in fire fighting or not. If you are a willing and able bodies member of

the community, you might want to consider checking out becoming a member of our volunteer fire department. With Chris Schmidt at the helm of the Lone Butte fire department auxiliary, they pres-

ently have only a small handful of committed helpers. They are doing everything possible to raise much needed money including bake sales, yard sales, silent auctions and asking for private donations.

Pot luck lunch The Lone Butte Other Unusual Talents group (O.U.T.) is still getting together through the summer on the first and third Tuesdays of the month, and on Aug. 6, they will be having a pot luck lunch at the community hall. Whether you have attended before or not, please feel welcome to drop by and meet this great group of ladies. They come together and share their craft ideas, or work together

on projects throughout the year and just enjoy each others company. For more information call Pat McKay at 250395-2114. Flea market With the busy summer months happening

for everyone, it was decided that there will be no flea market or craft sale in August, however the next one is set to go on Sept. 28. If you are interested in selling your wares, give Pat McKay a call to book your space.

Exceptional talent performs at second annual Hootstock event FOREST GROVE

These fertile males and females fly off to mate and start new colonies. As winter approaches the hornets die, except the queens, and because they do not reuse their nests they hibernate underground until spring. When spring arrives a new queen emerges and the cycle starts again. Don’t despair, this hornets season is almost over. It’s thought that their numbers this year are attributed to a cycle they go through similar to rabbits and grouse.

Shelly Carrera 250-397-2400

The second year of Hootstock took place at the old School House on Bradley Creek Rd. Aug. 26, 27, and 28. The one room school house was built in 1930 and closed in 1948. Over the years it fell into disrepair but in 1975 the Bradley Creek Stumpranchers came together to raise money to restore the building. They hosted many Christmas parties, corn roasts, Easter Egg hunts, sleigh and hay rides and Hootenanny Cafe fund raisers. After all the repairs, including a new roof, having logs replaced, and a variety of other projects the schoolhouse was ready for it’s new venue. A stage was built at the back of the school for this years Hootstock. From Friday evening at 5 p.m. until Sunday at 6 p.m. there was a fabulous line up of talent. There was singing, storytelling, dance and instrumentals of all descriptions. The setting was very peaceful with dragonflys and birds on bug patrol, a light breeze blowing and the sun shining brightly. All there was to do was sit, listen, watch and enjoy. Marg Huber, who,

Dennis Bowen did a song called Ghost of Walachine which was about his old dog. Go to www.hoot stock.com to see write ups of the various performers. Charles Jones was also on hand videotaping the various performers and those can be viewed athuncity.wix.com. Astrid and Steve Roy, two of the people

who created this event, should be very proud of the work they did. If you missed this years Hootstock then promise yourself to go to the 2014 event. Bald Faced Hornets Hornets are just part of summer, but this summer, it seems the population of The Bald Faced Hornet is unusually large. The Bald Faced Hornet is the largest hornet in it’s family and is common in most of North America. This insect is almost 3/4 of an inch long with white marks on it’s head and three white stripes

on it’s abdomen. They are carnivorous hunters and eat lots of flies, spiders and caterpillars. Even though they do us a service by eating so many bugs it’s a little unnerving to be in close proximity to them. They build papery, football shaped nests which they are very protective of. In the spring the queen lays the first batch of eggs which will be workers that concentrate on expanding and guarding the nest. Then in the early fall the queen lays a new batch of eggs which will become drones and new queens.

Redneck Regatta and Olympics Aug. 10 and 11 will be very busy in Forest Grove and at Ruth Lake Park. The Red Neck Olympics will be taking place Aug. 10 at the Forest Grove Legion for all to enjoy. There will be lots of crazy games to participate in and of course there will be lots of prizes and food. It’s an all day event so come and have fun. The Red Neck Regatta on Aug. 11 at Ruth Lake Park is not something you’ll want to miss. Boats made of various recycled items will be competing for prizes and there will be lots of other activities on shore for every member of the family to enjoy. Boat building starts at 8 a.m. sharp. Judging for the best boat starts at 11 a.m. and at 1 p.m. the races start. Come and cheer for your favourite boat.

Quilters invite everyone to join in exciting new project INTERLAKES Diana Forster 250 593-2155

The Log Cabin Quilters (LCQ) are very excited about their new program which will see a quilt gifted to every chemotherapy patient at 100 Mile Hospital. For many years, LCQ has gifted quilts to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, for both comfort, and for preemies, of which they sent 24 last year, but this is the first time they’ve made special quilts for 100 Mile District General Hospital. Spokesperson Celia Visscher said they anticipate making some 50 chemo quilts a year and, because this is a community project, they are eager to invite everyone who wishes to help. Helpers do not need to be quilters, because they can cut, iron or sew and, of course, they can learn to quilt if they wish. Roe Lake and District Recreation Commission, manager of Interlakes Hall, is donating use of the hall every 4th Thursday of the month from 9

a.m. to 4 p.m., starting Sept. 26, and every month thereafter except December. For further information, call Celia at 250-593-4070 .

CRD Referenda On Sept. 7, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is holding two referenda, only one of which applies to Interlakes residents. The one that does not affect us, because we are not part of the existing South Cariboo Recreation Service, is to provide financial support via property taxes to assist additional 100 Mile House recreational/cultural services, such as Martin Exeter Hall. The other, which does apply to all Interlakes CRD Area L residents, is to provide financial support via property taxes to assist Search and Rescue (SAR). This is expected to cost residents about $0.84 per $100,000 of taxable value, a mere pittance given the value of SAR, and the fact that it is often used in the Interlakes area. The CRD is holding an information meeting regarding this referendum, at 5.30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 15 at Interlakes Hall. Advance voting will be available on Aug. 28 and Sept. 3 at the 100 Mile House District

Office at 385 Birch Ave. The CRD is also looking for volunteer scrutineers, one for, and one against for each voting place, i.e., 100 Mile House District Office, Lone Butte Community Hall and Interlakes Hall. Application forms are available at the CRD or 100 Mile House District office, and must be submitted by Aug. 9.

Quilters AGM LCQ’s June 5 annual general meeting saw Elaine Adams elected as treasurer; and Hazel Smith as co-leader. Remaining in office are Leader Gyl Connaty (250-593-4456); and secretary Linda Farthing. Regular meetings return as of Sept. 4 . Public hearing The CRD has sched-

uled a public hearing at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 20 at Interlakes Hall, to receive input into the Danns’ proposal for 11 two- plus acre strata lots on their 154 acre Crooked Lake Ranch. Since the Danns’ June 1 information meeting, the plan has passed two readings by the CRD. This hearing is residents’ only opportunity to voice opinions, after which the proposal goes back to the CRD for third and final reading .

ElectroRecycle ambassadors encourage recycling of small appliances

Youngster Mia Weir was singing on Birch Ave. on July 19, busking to raise money for an upcoming vocal music camp for youth.

Opera singer brings vocal camp to youth in 100 Mile Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Summer camp takes a new twist when the Song Birds Vocal Music Camp comes to 100 Mile House, Aug. 26-30. Opera singer Michaela Dickey, who grew up in 100 Mile House, is coming from Montreal to conduct the camp which is geared for youth aged 10-17. It’s an intermediate level course which will focus on movement, diction, introduction to singing other languages and skill building. Nicole Weir is helping to co-ordinate the camp, and says she’s excited to have Dickey return home to instruct the course. “She is so incredibly talented and fun. I

know the kids are going to love her. “She is definitely an inspiration, having herself, come from 100 Mile and was able to follow her dreams and be successful in what she loves to do.” On Aug. 31, there’s a public concert at 7 p.m. at the United Church, with admission by cash donation at the door. As a way to lower camp costs, Nicole’s young daughter Mia Weir took to busking on Birch Avenue on July 19, singing solo for cash donations from passersby. The youngster was out there for more than four hours and says the money she raised will benefit all music camp registrants.

Nicole is taking registrations for the camp and she can be reached at 250-791-6345.

ElectroRecycle Ambassadors Krisandra Reid and Stephen Morgan visited 100 Mile House on July 16 as part of a province-wide tour to encourage more British Columbians to recycle their small household appliances and power tools. While here, the ambassadors were to meet with the District of 100 Mile House operations director Garry Laursen to collaborate and brainstorm new and innovative ways of inspiring residents to recycle local products. They were also going to gain insights into the District’s current recycling behaviours and outlooks to learn how ElectroRecycle can better serve 100 Mile in order to reach its wastereduction goals. Unfortunately, that meeting was postponed due to conflicting time commitments, so Reid and Morgan will stop in 100 Mile House during the back end of their tour in August. However, they did visit local recycling depots the Bee-Line Courier, at 201B Seventh St., and Gold Trail Recycling, at 694 Sollows Cres. Reid said she supports the program because it reduces what is typically going into landfills. “Small appliances are easy to throw out and often end up in the

landfill.” Morgan noted they are working towards a greater goal of being able to recycle everything. “Anything that has electricity going through it has metal and it has value. If it’s portable and you plug it in or uses batteries, it’s recyclable.” It was noted that to date, 100 Mile residents have collected more than 173 kilograms of electrical products. Said Gold Trail Recycling co-owner Leslie Glen: “We need a

lot more programs like this in the community.” ElectroRecycle is the not-for-profit, province-wide recycling program that provides a friendly alternative for a variety of electrical products, such as toasters, blenders, irons, sewing machines and electric toothbrushes, that would otherwise end up in landfills. ElectroRecycle was launched in October

2011 to meet a recycling mandate from the provincial Ministry of the Environment. It is the first recycling program of its kind in Canada, and the only government-approved recycling program in B.C. for electrical appliances.

I always do the same thing no matter where the wax has dripped; once on expensive (not mine) speakers. You will need a good quantity of paper towels and an ordinary household iron. One time I didn’t have paper towels and so I cut a grocery brown bag up • Retail Sales into squares and it worked also. • Plumbing and Heating Services & Installation Heat the iron on a medium setting and • Wood and Pellet Heat Sales & Installation have your paper towels (or paper bags) 300 Industrial Road, 100 Mile House ready. Put the paper towel or paper Phone: 250-395-4800 www.burgessphe.com bag over the wax, then place the iron BURGESS PLUMBING, HEATING & ELECTRICAL CO. LTD. on the spot. As soon as you see the paper (bag) getting a wet look, remove the iron. Take a new piece of paper towel and again apply the hot iron. Remove the paper when it appears wet.

Cancer survivor cycles through town on world tour Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

A mere 47,000 kilometres after cancer survivor Randolph Westphal cycled through 100 Mile House in 2005 with his husky dogs, Yukon and Nanook, he was back again, July 22-23 as part of his sixth world bike tour. In 1987, at the age of 29, Westphal was diagnosed with incurable skin cancer and given up to only one year to live Since then the 55-year-old from Germany has endured 28 cancer operations and logged a total of 207,000 km on his bike, giving motivational talks about cancer survival along the way and showing people why they should never give up.

Following several years biking through Europe, Westphal returned to Vancouver on May 4 to begin his newest journey, which has already brought him through Banff and Jasper and will likely continue to Whitehorse, and eventually to Victoria. He travels on a Raleigh Dover Lite Premium electrical bike, with his two dogs, Chinook and Nanook, riding comfortably on a cart towed behind the bicycle. Since Westphal was last here, he’s had knee surgery and received a new hip, so he depends on the electric bike to make pedalling easier. Where it takes him, he’s not sure. “My destination is to help people – to zigzag all over and spread my message.”

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!

Two, free grant-writing workshops are being offered this month in 100 Mile House and Williams Lake. The workshops are being co-hosted by the Northern Interior Communities Association and the Cariboo Regional District for community groups, organizations and charities in the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

However, valuable grant-writing basics will be covered, which can be applied to all funding program applications. In 100 Mile House, the workshop takes place on Aug. 11 at the South Cariboo Recreation Centre, 175 Airport Rd. The general workshop runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by one-on-one sessions 3-5 p.m. In Williams Lake, the workshop is Aug. 10 in the Council Chambers at 450 Mart St. The workshop takes place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with one-to-one sessions 1:30-5:30 p.m. Unfortunately, the one-on-one sessions are now fully booked for both locations.

Enjoy Red Neck Olympics at Forest Grove Legion

By Shelly Carrera On Aug. 10, the Red Neck Olympics will take place at the Forest Grove Legion, starting at 10 a.m. This is a family event, so bring your children so everyone can participate in these wacky games. The games include Toilet Seat Horseshoes, Sunflower Spitting, Mud Pie Eating, Toilet Roll Relay and, of course, Pin the Tail on the Donkey. There are a number of other games, but folks will have to come to the Legion and see for themselves. Prizes will be awarded for the winners of these games. Legion president Jim Tindale says it will be a really fun day for everyone. There will be hotdogs, hamburgers, pop and coffee for sale, and after lunch, the refreshment garden will

open. Any money raised from the Red Neck Olympics will go towards repairs, bills and improvements at the Legion. When the Olympics finish at 4 p.m., the meat draw will take place, so feel free to stay and participate in this weekly event. The kitchen will also open at that time, so folks can order supper from the large menu. Legion cook Wayne Gilchrist is always happy to serve up a nice supper. Folks who are up for another day of fun should head to Ruth Lake Park on Aug. 11 for the Red Neck Regatta. The boat building starts at 8 a.m. and the competitors will have until noon to finish their water craft. Judging for the best boat will take an hour and the boat race will go at 1 p.m. Come out and root for your favourite boat.
