The Kingsgate Excavating crew drew a lot of attention from passers-by when they were actively demolishing two houses at the corner of First Street and Birch Avenue in 100 Mile House on Aug. 7. The project took a couple of days to complete, and enhances the look of the downtown core.

Two old and run-down houses in the downtown core were demolished last week by Kingsgate Excavating. The two small buildings at the corner of Birch Avenue and First Street were owned by Dave Dickie of Purser Creek Holdings Ltd.

To have the buildings knocked down and property cleaned up, he had to get a development permit from the District of 100 Mile House. Noting the properties are zoned R-2 Residential, Dickie’s permit application stated that once the demolition was completed, he had no further development plans at this time.

100 x 130 lot. Walk to Lone Butte amenities. Large level lot. Smaller 2 bdrm, 1 bath home w/partially finished basement. Plenty of room for toys, build a shop, etc.

The present use of the property conformed to the District’s zoning bylaw, and leaving the land vacant also conformed to the bylaw. However, Dickie was advised any changes of use would require a zoning review and may trigger a zoning amendment. It was also noted that both lots were designated Commercial Central

Business District in the 100 Mile House Official Community Plan, and leaving the lots vacant didn’t create a non-conformity issue. In her report to council, District planner Joanne Doddridge noted that issuing a development permit doesn’t preclude the applicant from meeting the requirements of all municipal bylaws, includ-

ing the Subdivision & Development Servicing Bylaw, Zoning Bylaw, Building Bylaw, Sign Permit, Demolition Permit. The demolition process attracted several interested onlookers and passers-by also stopped briefly to watch the big excavator knock the houses and ancillary buildings down over two days.

108 Water restrictions tightened The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) has imposed new water sprinkling restrictions for users of the 108 Mile Ranch water system, starting on Aug. 13. Even-numbered addresses may now water only on evennumbered days of the month, while oddnumbered addresses may only water on odd numbered days. Furthermore, the use of yard sprinklers is only allowed from 6 to 8 a.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. during these days. CRD Area G Director Al Richmond says the reason for the tightened watering restrictions is overuse of the water system, which has drawn down the ground water in the 108 Mile and Sepa lakes aquifer. “I don’t know what has gone on this year, but there has been a substantial amount of watering after hours and on some large acreages. “If they don’t cease their after-hours illegal watering, we’ll have to curtail it further. Some offenders have been found, but the CRD has been unable to

find them all, he adds, leaving it without the ability to maintain community water pressure in the evenings. “I’d ask people to really seriously watch the watering hours, so

we don’t have to further curtail [restrictions].” The July interim report is available online at For further information or questions about the report, contact the

CRD’s Environmental Services Department toll-free at 1-800-6651636. Read more details in the Aug. 21 edition of the 100 Mile House Free Press.

Wranglers will hold volunteer fair Aug. 18-20

Ken Alexander Free Press

With equipment and other items arriving on a daily basis, 100 Mile House Wranglers Junior B Hockey Club president Tom Bachynski says excitement is really building for the start of the season. “As we see this stuff happening, we [club executive] are pinching ourselves and realizing we’ve got to giddy-up because this is really going to happen in a couple of week. “I think everybody has butterflies; we’re anxious and excited. There’s a big bucket of emotions that is going on ... and it’s all good. The next big event for the Wranglers is the Main Camp, which starts at 3 p.m. on Sunday (Aug. 18) and ends with the Blue & White game at 7 p.m. on Aug. 20. (See details on page 4.) Folks are encouraged to come down to the arena to check out the action. There is no admission fee except for the Blue & White - $2 and a non-perishable item for the local Food Bank. During the Main Camp, the club executive will be hosting a Volunteer Fair.

Folks will be able to sign up to help in one of 10 volunteers areas – off-ice officials, special events, Booster Club, event staff, billeting, equipment manager, guest services, marketing and sales, media personnel and beverage garden. Club executive assistant Kersti Foote says each of these areas needs someone to chair it, except for marketing and sales, but volun-

teers will also be needed to help in all of these areas. Executive members will be manning the booth at the Main Camp and will have handouts detailing what chores need to be done in each area. They will also be able to answer questions potential volunteers might have. They want to sign up all of the volunteers they need to help the club run as smooth as

silk. Bachynski says they hope to get enough people, so no one feels they need to be at the rink for all 26 home games. Scheduling is also something that can be discussed during the Volunteer Fair. “Anybody who wants to find out what they can do and how they can [help out], this would be a great opportunity to come in and watch a little bit of hockey and

listed at $199,000.

Science Fiction • Rating : 14A • Parents: Extreme violence, offensive language • Length 1:50

In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hardened government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Donation jar stolen in grab-and-dash At 4 a.m. on Aug. 12, a male entered the 100 Mile House 7-Eleven and walked around in the store. He waited until staff were occupied and then grabbed a donation jar off the front counter and tried to run out the door.

Cariboo Regional District busy CRD

briefs Following are the highlights from the July 12 Cariboo Regional District (CRD) regular board meeting: Police investigations Independent Investigations Office

(IIO) of BC chief civilian director Richard Rosenthal and senior investigator Ralph Krenz presented information about the IIO to the board. The IIO has jurisdiction in the investigation of on- and off-duty police officers in the province whenever a serious or major police incident occurs.


The board heard how the three key goals of the IIO are to complete thorough, fair and competent investigations; improve the timeliness of investigations; and improve transparency and accountability through public reporting. More information about the IIO is available online at www. Workshop goodies The board authorized up to $350 for the cost of coffee and tea service, plus two lunches for the facilitator, at two Northern Interior Communities

Association (NICA) Grant Writing Workshops to be held in 100 Mile House and Williams Lake this month. It is the third year the CRD has partnered with NICA, which assists non-profit organizations in northern British Columbia to write and submit successful grant applications to the B.C. Community Gaming Grant program, to bring their workshop to the Cariboo through the CRD’s Community Grant Writer program. The board noted about 60 people attended the workshop in

2012, which resulted in successful applications and appeals submitted to the gaming grant program. The money will be apportioned equally from each of the Electoral Areas D, F, G, H and L Director Initiative funds.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, it’s hard to smile when you are feeling upset. This is not the week to let your true feelings show, though. Get through your obligations first. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, if you have been thinking about getting active to lose weight, try something fun like playing a sport. Exercise doesn’t have to mean time in the gym. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Certain aspects of your life are a work in progress, Aquarius. Other things you have under control. This week, focus on the things that may be holding you back.

Solve the code to discover words related to babies. Each number corresponds to a different letter. (Hint: 7=n)

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, while creative pursuits tickle your fancy this week, some of the more mundane tasks will require your immediate attention.

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!
