Attendance up at BV Exhibition

Special

Last Friday of every month

By Ryan Jensen Smithers/Interior News

Attendance was up at this year’s edition of the Bulkley Valley Exhibition, thanks in large part to a rejuvenated entertainment schedule and a revamped kids’ area. “We don’t have confirmed numbers yet but we were up from last year,” said Bulkley Valley Exhibition coordinator Cindy Savage. “I think we had a lot of things to offer people this year — the concert series, we upgraded our Family Zone and brought in some great activities and a new, larger petting zoo area.” Extra attention was paid this year to the entertainment lineup, Savage said, as evidenced by big-name Canadian artists High Valley and Faber Drive who wowed the audience on Friday and Saturday night. “The audience on Friday night [for High Valley] was amazing,” she said. “There were about 1,500 people out front in the pouring

Motocross track closer to finding a home

By Ryan Jensen Smithers/Interior News

The Smithers Motocross Association is getting closer to finding a permanent home. At a special meeting last week between the SMXA and the Regional District of BulkleyNechako, a number of options were discussed for potential track locations. “We’re looking at a bunch of different sites and working with the motocross association to sort out which one will be the most appropriate,” said Jason Llewellyn, RDBN director of planning. “I think we’ll find a site pretty quickly. It will likely be a Crown land site so it will take an application to get a license of occupation to use the site as a motocross track.” The future of the SMXA track has been up in the air since last year, when RDBN residents brought forward complaints about the noise generated by the track. Further investigation revealed deeper environmental issues that have yet to be fixed. Aaron Miles, SMXA president, said the club will continue to work with the RDBN to find a suitable location. If one is not found

After months of searching, the RDBN and the SMXA are getting closer to finding a permanent home for the SMXA motocross track, currently located on Donaldson Rd.

in time for next riding season, Miles assured club members they will have a place to ride. “No matter what,

we’ll have a place for our members to ride next year,” Miles said. “If we can’t find a new location by next spring,

we’re going to keep riding at this track because we need a place for our members to go. We’re not going to leave people high

and dry.” Llewellyn said once a site is found, the RDBN will work together with the SMXA to find money to

develop the track. “We’re working with them to find grant funding opportunities to help with those costs.”

Smithers unit crew sent to Idaho to combat fires By Amara Janssens Smithers/Interior News

A severe fire burning in Idaho prompted the state to ask British Columbia and the northwest for help. Earlier last week, the state requested a team of forest firefighters from the Northwest Fire Centre to combat the unfolding emergency situation. The fire centre responded last Thursday by sending a 20-person unit crew, consisting of 12 members of

the Telkwa Rangers, as well as eight personnel from Burns Lake. Dan Dykens from Telkwa is leading the crew. The crews were sent to Incendiary Creek, with the nearest town located approximately 10 km southwest of Wieppe, and approximately 400 km north of Boise. Another 20-person unit crew from the province, as well as two airtankers and a birddog aircraft were also sent to Idaho. Suzanne Pearce, fire information

Breaking News?

officer for the Northwest Fire Centre, said more than 1,000 acres are in flames. The fire crews are also dealing with very difficult terrain, with canyons which are both steep and rugged. The B.C. crews accompanied more than 300 American fire personnel. As of early this week, the crews were cooperating to build containment lines, and to extinguish hot spots. Pearce said the United States has experienced an abnormal level of fire activity this year. “They’ve had a really hot dry spell,”

she said. The province anticipates recieving more calls of assistance, as more fires are ravaging parts of Idaho, Montana and California. The calls may not necessarily be directed at the Northwest Fire Centre, Pearce said. Crews are able to be deployed out of the country for up to 19 days, but can be recalled at any time if a situation were to arise here. Unit crews are called in for large fires and are self-sufficient for 72-hour intervals.

POINT O F V IEW

Get behind new arena S

tarting this week in The Interior News, we will be highlighting the Second Sheet of Ice fundraising initiative with an ad on our front page. The potential economic spin offs and health benefits of having a second sheet of ice are two of the reasons I believe the project is good for the entire community. With local contractors making up a large part of the design/build team, we believe it can be done on time and on budget. The fundraising committee has a huge job ahead of them and is looking to add $400,000 to bring the project’s budget to $4.7 million. Early on, the fundraising drive is already off to a great start. Thanks to the generosity of Dan Hamhuis and his wife Sarah, who kicked off the fundraising drive earlier this month with a $50,000 donation, the total has already reached nearly $180,000. In the last week, more than $30,000 was raised to go toward the new arena. Despite this formidable fundraising hurdle, Smithers mayor Taylor Bachrach told The Interior News at the end of July he was confident the community would rally behind the project. “One thing the past has shown us, when you look at the past of Smithers, is when the community gets behind a project there’s no stopping it,” he said. “We’ve achieved some incredible things in our 100 years of history and I’m absolutely confident the community’s going to get behind this project and we’re going to pull it off in great form.” Each week and as donations come in, we will update our total on the front page and acknowledge the new sponsors. And there are sponsorship opportunities to fit every budget. Diamond sponsors, those who contribute $100,000 or more, will be honoured with their name on the new arena as well as have their name included on the donation wall. Copper sponsorships are open to those who donate up to $999 and will be recognized by receving an invitation to the Second Sheet of Ice opening ceremony. While the fundraising goal of $400,000 has been set, any more money that is brought in can help make the arena more complete. Additional seating could be added, for example. Please give generously to this worthwhile community project. Ryan Jensen, The Interior News

The pressure is on for skills training

A

dvanced Education Minister Amrik Virk has offered some advice for students heading for post-secondary education this fall. In a commentary sent to B.C. newspapers, Virk reminded students that his task “is to ensure postsecondary students obtain the experience and qualifications needed to put a paycheque in their back pocket.” B.C. is forecast to have one million jobs to fill by 2020, through a combination of retirements and economic growth. More than 40 per cent of them will

require trades and technical training, and for students, likely a move north. “My advice to students is to look at where the jobs are based and tailor their education and training to match,” Virk wrote. “Our population is concentrated in the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island, but as a resourcebased economy, many directly and indirectly related jobs are located elsewhere.” That’s not the only blunt message for students deciding on a career. While defending his ministry’s spending plans in the recent

GUEST VIEW Tom Fletcher legislature session, Virk described some of the problems that are entrenched. Parents, particularly in immigrant communities, push their children towards medicine, law, dentistry or engineering, he noted. Students themselves gravitate

toward areas that are familiar to them, such as teaching. B.C. universities graduated 2,000 new teachers last year. Another 850 arrived from out of province and were licensed to teach in B.C. During the same year, the B.C. school system hired 800 teachers. And many of those jobs were outside metropolitan areas. Virk said post-secondary institutions working with industry have produced 456 additional seats in high-demand programs for this year. It’s a start. In July, Premier Christy Clark joined the chorus of premiers protesting

Ottawa’s plan to claw back $300 million in federal training money to provinces, for its new employer-driven Canada Jobs Grant. Clark and New Brunswick Premier David Alward were assigned to find an alternative to this drastic shift and report back in the fall. Given the magnitude of the gap between what skills our education system produces and what the economy needs, a larger shift in priorities is needed.

Editor: We just returned from a fabulous trip up the Alaska Highway. On our return out of Prince Rupert, we broke down by Seeley Lake and had to be towed to Smithers for repairs. Unfortunately, it was the beginning of the B.C. Day long weekend and very few auto services were available. But fortunately, it was the beginning of Smithers’ Centennial celebration and our introduction to one of the friendliest, most accommodating and lively communities we have seen in years! It took a week to get our car parts to Frontier Chrysler, which turned out to

be a very good thing. Due to the overwhelming generosity of Smithers, we biked, played tennis, listened to amazing concerts and local talent, lunched on top of the ski hill, enjoyed a great community pancake breakfast and learned lots of personal stories from local people (too many to list here,

you know who you are). The weather was perfect and it all turned a disaster into one of the best and most memorable parts of our trip to the northland. You all should be very proud of your community. You come together when fire strikes unexpectantly and you treat strangers like family.

Huxtables carry on Bulkley Valley 4-H tradition By Ryan Jensen Smithers/Interior News

The Huxtable family has a long history in 4-H. The organization, which is celebrating its centennial in 2013, has been a major part of the family’s life for the last four generations. “When I turned nine it wasn’t actually a choice,” Kristine Huxtable, a third-generation 4-Her, said. “My Dad said when you turn nine you go in 4-H, so that was it.” But she wasn’t resentful about being directed into 4-H, Kristine said she had been looking forward to joining. “All my cousins were in 4-H too so I couldn’t wait to get into it,” she said. “I really liked showing my

animals.” Now, Kristine’s three daughters are all involved in the program in some way. Five-year-old Emelia is still two years away from 4-H’s feeder Cloverbud program but she did participate in the fair this year by showing a sheep. Miranda, 10, takes part in the 4-H beef, sheep, scrapbooking and leathercraft programs. The oldest, Becky, 11, is involved in beef, rabbit and leathercraft. Becky has been a 4-H member for the last three years and was a Cloverbud for four years previous to that. At this year’s fair, she showed a steer and rabbit, and helped Miranda show a sheep. She also takes part in leathercraft but said

her favourite is rabbits, “because they’re cute and fluffy.” The program has many benefits, Kristine said. It teaches youth important life skills such as public speaking and builds a sense of responsibility in the club members. “Just being in the ring and showing an animal is a huge confidence builder,” Kristine said. “With selling, they also learn where their food comes from — this is a meat animal, it’s not just a pet and they also learn some marketing skills.” From 4-H, Becky has even started her own rabbitry business, selling the animals as pets and for food. “You get to show animals but it also teaches you about responsibility,” Becky said.

Becky Huxtable, 11, is the fourth generation of her family to participate in the 4-H program.

Business community supports annual 4-H auction By Nolan Kelly Smithers/Interior News

Local businesses came out in droves on Saturday to attend the annual 4-H live auction at the Bulkley Valley Exhbition. Each year, members of 4-H undertake a project. The most popular and labour intensive of these projects involves choosing a young animal, raising it, feeding it and halter breaking in preparation to sell it at a live auction. Throughout the year, 4-H gives clinics on how to properly raise the steer and how to present it at market. Each student can do

more than one project a year, but they are only allowed to sell one each at the fair. At the beginning of summer, the 4-H youths approach businesses around town, either in person, or with a letter, asking them to come out to the fall fair to bid on the animal. On Saturday, those businesses wishing to bid came out to the Bulkley Valley Exhibition grounds to have a look at the animals on display. Each 4-H member brought out their animal, as the announcer read a note from them about what they learned this year at 4-H. Then the bidding

got underway. In total, 32 steer, 8 swine and 6 lambs were sold to local businesses. “It was really amazing,” 4-H leader Sandra Pali said. “This year was a really wonderful year. We

had lots of buyers turn up at the fair and it was nice to see that support.” It’s an emotional day for some of the kids, who have raised and taken care of their animal since they were

young. For many, the project takes the place of an after school job and can help them raise money for post secondary education. In addition to the animal raising and auction, there were

other 4-H projects on display at the fair. Though 4-H is known for agriculture, projects range from photography to food preparation, to repairing small engines to sewing. 4-H gets its name from its motto, ‘head, heart, hands and health’, its mission is to “develop young people of today into leaders of tomorrow by providing them with the opportunities to learn and grow within their environment”. 4-H members run the club, just like elected officials would run a council meeting. Each member votes on positions with the club, like president or treasurer. Though they

are given responsibility to run their chapter, they have lots of guidance from alumni and leaders. The 4-H season winds down into autumn, though groups continue to have monthly meetings. “All the 4-H members, leaders and parents would like to give a big thank you to the businesses and individuals that came out to support the auction,” Pali said. The Smithers chapter of 4-H was started in 1954 by Geoff Hutchinson, Art Kerr, Gordon Kerr, Harold Kerr, Ira Bowd and Ken Turner. There are three clubs in the Bulkley Valley: Evelyn, Quick and Topley.

Irish crochet first came to Ireland in the 1700s. The Ursuline nuns learned the technique in France, a shortcut for making Venetian point needle lace. Irish crochet consists of raised edges and a fine mesh background. When the potato blight arrived in 1845 a quarter of the Irish population starved or immigrated. Schools and stores were founded by wealthy women where Irish crochet lace making was taught and sold, creating a trend that evolved into a cottage industry that supported many families.

Listening to music releases endorphins, causing good feelings. Music can relieve pain, decrease anxiety, blood pressure, heart rate. Certain songs can take you back to happy times, trigger long-term memories. I know that hearing a piece of music from my growing up years always brings to mind my mom who had the radio on all the time. Return to playing an instrument you may have played when you were younger or take up lessons. The necessary hand-eye coordination stimulates the brain. Even my birds love music, silent until the radio comes on then they greet the music with their own version of singing.

From South Sudan to Smithers By Amara Janssens Smithers/Interior News

From Subsaharan Africa to Smithers, the experiences could not seem more opposite. But for one Smithers family, the disparity between the two is all too real, and the move to Canada was a dangerous trek that took many years of planning. It began when Alsamani and Fozeia Mac fell in love during the onset of the Second Sudanese Civil War, which began in 1983 and lasted more than two decades. Alsamani was a student studying in North Sudan (now the Republic of Sudan) at the Sudan University of Science and Technology in the College of Music and Drama in Khartoum. He majored in drama. Yet, his hometown was in South Sudan, in the city of Bor. Fozeia was a nurse in the city of Juba, the largest city and capital of the now Republic of South Sudan. Alsamani, young and in love, travelled the dangerous border between the north and south to see Fozeia. He visited the south three times before the two married in 1985,

and conceived their first child, Mark. Their wedding was the last time he was in South Sudan, as when he returned to school in Khartoum the border had become too dangerous to recross. The couple spent the next 10 years apart, each experiencing two different sides of a brutal civil war which saw more than two million lives lost, and even more people displaced between 1983 to 2005. When Alsamani graduated, with distinction, he worked for the government (in the north), as a choreographer, director and dancer for a dance group. In 1992, Alsamani formed his own independent drama group, and his plays re-enacted the different aspects of the human condition in time of civil unrest, war, and brutality. “[We] discussed issues in the form of drama,” Alsamani explained. Theatre on wheels is how Alsamani described his company, as they travelled to camps and refugee centres in north Sudan. “We moved from village to village,” he said. After intensive

training, his group consisted of 50 female and male actors, all from different tribes and all speaking different languages. With more than 70 languages native to Sudan, his drama group worked to perform in as many languages as possible. In their first season they performed in six languages, and each year they added an

additional six languages to their repetoire. Meanwhile, in South Sudan in the city of Juba, Fozeia worked as a nurse in a hospital. With nightly aerial bombings, heavy artillery and machine guns used on rebels and civilians alike, Fozeia saw firsthand the gruesome effect of war. As a nurse, she worked as a glorified body collector, with

the hospital acting as a storage place for mangled corpses. “Sometimes when I came back [home], my uniform was covered in blood,” Fozeia said. After 10 years, Fozeia was sent to the north for a nursing course. It was the one chance the couple had to reunite. “I didn’t let her go back,” Alsamani said. With their family

back together, along with 10 yearold son Mark, the family travelled with Alsamani’s theatre group. But as Alsamani’s group gained more exposure, his plays began to attract the attention of the government. At first, he was seen as suspicious as his plays were not always performed in Arabic, the official language of the government. But then he received accusations that he was spreading the message of the rebels. Throughout the war, Alsamani said artists were seen as a tool for the government to spread political propaganda, and tried to use Alsamani in this capacity. “They tried to bribe me by bullying me, by intimidating me.” When Alsamani refused, suspicion on the part of the government grew deeper. “Life was becoming so hard for me, they were harassing me.” The family was smuggled out of Sudan to Egypt with Alsamani telling the government they were going on leave. Alsamani stayed behind for a year to avoid more red flags being raised. He quietly sold his house, and used that

money to support his wife, Mark and new baby Aro, who lived in Cairo waiting for Alsamani, along with their orphaned nephew. One year later, Alsamani escaped, saying he too was going on leave and met his family in Cairo in 1999. For a year he worked in Cairo, writing for an Arabic Sudanese newspaper, and as a radio actor for a Christian radio station. They applied for refugee status with the Canadian government and the United Nations, which if accepted, meant they’d be sent to the United States. They were accepted into both, but ultimately chose Canada as it had a more peaceful image abroad, something the family was desperately searching for. They arrived in Vancouver in 2000, and wanting a small community to raise Aro, they moved to Smithers in 2008. With Aro graduating next year, and having been in the Canadian school system since Kindergarten, the couple could not be happier. But Alsamani, who now works at Extra Foods, says he misses directing. “That’s the only thing I miss,” he said.

Birds are busy with berries

FOR THE BIRDS Brenda Mallory

I

t is a good thing I live far from others since at this moment smoke is coming from the woodstove chimney. Just felt a bit chilly. Now this is so nice. A few cooler days should solve the hornet problem. Never seen anything like it. It is tough on animals since many of the hornets have in-ground nests. Remember to work at those nest when it is cooler outside.  The birds are coming in big groups

now to eat the saskatoons. Sadly, I do not have any bears to eat the berries. I can tell you many robins are here. This morning I had two male goldfinches.  They were busy with berries as well. Other birds who eat the berries are chickadees, sparrows and the pileated woodpecker. I watched the pileated hang this way and that from a spindly branch. The other day when visiting folks at the fairgrounds we spotted a small group of the long-billed dowitcher. They were picking and poking about with a group of crows. Never seen them here before. There is a short billed variety of the dowitcher. A little later a flock of Canada geese did a fly by. Probably not a migratory group. Soon I am sure. I was asked if we should still put out

hummingbird food. It is not really necessary at this time. Most of the hummers have left now. Those that are still here will manage quite well on the flowers. Red-necked grebe at Tyhee Lake as well as a few mallard ducks. With a few cooler wet days in our forecast the waterfowl on our lakes will get bit of a break from the roar of motor boats. I had an interesting chat with a senior person from Fort Nelson. Like me she is in her seventies, living alone and trying to stay in her own home. We share a birthday and for years now we have talked about our lives. This past year her old dog passed away. She told me “never again.” She figured if she got another dog it would just die. She couldn’t handle a puppy. Her story changed a week ago when a friend died

and she now has a new older dog to care for. They take long walks together, look for birds and other things. The best thing she says is that now she knows if someone is coming into her yard. She has someone to talk to. Love and companionship, what could be better than that? This getting older can be tough. I have my dogs, a cat and other critters. My friends figure I can still manage to live here. They gave me a big red wagon so I can drag wood out of the bush. So my Fort Nelson friend has a new old dog and I have a big red wagon. Keep on keeping on! Living alone? Get a dog or a cat. It might make a big difference. Watch for the migration of some birds. Give me a call at 250-846-5095 or just e-mail a note to mallory@bulkley.net.

Prescriptions for Living Well Tinka Von Keyserlingk Pharmacist

Back to School in the Best of Health Vacations are over. Now it’s time to get your kids ready for school. New clothes and supplies are only a part of it. A little planning and you can also give them a fun and healthy year. It’s never too early to teach children about health and making healthy choices. Their lunch kit is a great place to begin. Pack it with nutritious treats such as a couple of servings of fruit and veggies, maybe carrot sticks and a banana. Add grains with whole wheat bread. Power their lunch with proteins such as fish, nut butters, or meat (lean chicken rather than high-fat processed luncheon meats).

Include low-fat dairy products like skim or 1 per cent milk or reduced fat cheese, yogurt or other calcium resources. If your child can’t or won’t eat dairy products, ask your doctor, public health nurse or dietician for other options. Exercise with a capital “E” is the other element that makes a healthy school year. Kids have energy, so encourage them to use it on the local soccer team, or by playing tag or ball in the park. Don’t let them turn into couch potatoes. Consider limiting TV watching which can take important time away from physical activity and homework. Being outdoors more often will also help them

sleep better, which helps them do better at school. Schedules are more relaxed during holidays. When school is in session it’s important for your kids to get regular sleep. A 6 year old may need up to 12 hours. A 12 year old may only need 9 hours. Make the year as safe as you can. Children who bike to school require helmets and grounding in basic road safety. If you or someone else drives them to school remind them to always “buckle up”. Sadly, car accidents are the most common cause of death in school age children. Seat belts save lives. It’s as simple as that.

Smithers rodeo entertains hundreds at fair By Nolan Kelly Smithers/Interior News

Cowboys from all over B.C., Alberta and the U.S.A. came out to the Smithers rodeo this past weekend in a tune-up for the BCRA final in Quesnel on the second weekend in September. To the delight of the hundreds of rodeo fans in attendance on both Friday and Saturday night, the cowboys competed in eight different events: bareback, saddle bronc, tiedown roping, steer wrestling, breakaway roping, barrel racing, team roping and bull riding. All around supercowboy Steve ‘the ironman’ Hohmann managed three podium finishes out of the four roughneck events he competed in, though he fell short of a top three finish in the bull riding. The saddle bronc, which is the horse equivalent to bull riding, was the most tightly contested event of the weekend.

S PORTS Smaha-Muir off to join PG Cougars By Nolan Kelly Smithers/Interior News

Lauren SmahaMuir has gone as far as Smithers minor hockey can take her. So this winter she’s heading to Prince George to play major midget hockey with the Northern Cariboo Cougars. “I’m going to miss my family and friends, but in the end it was an easy decision because I know that there is no other place for me to play hockey here.” Smaha-Muir spent last season with the Rugged Edge major recreation team, but without a major midget team here, her options were limited. In Prince George, she’ll join her old coach, Mario Dejsardins who’ll take over the coaching duties for the Cougars this season. “He is really amazing. He connects with every player on the same level, but always treats you as an individual.” Smaha-Muir is hoping that the higher level of play, and more intensive

regular season will be her ticket to university or college once she graduates in 2015. “I think she has a couple of years to get better,” Desjardins said. “She has to continue to develop as a player, improve her skills and get good grades. There is no point in hoping for a scholarship if the grades aren’t there.” In order to take that next step, she’s well aware of the work she needs to put in. “I have to train harder, to get better and fitter and do more dryland training,” SmahaMuir said. Adding another degree of difficulty to her path, she’ll be making the transition from defenseman to forward this year. “There were 16 defenseman at tryouts and only 19 forwards,” Desjardins said. “I knew she could play forward, so we switched her up there and that gives us the flexibility to move her back if we need to.”

Lauren Smaha-Muir is heading to Prince George for the coming hockey season, where she’ll play major midget with the Northern Cougars.

From MUIR on A16 The Northern Cariboo Cougars play Major Midget AAA hockey, against five other teams from all over British Columbia. Smaha-Muir and the Cougars will put on a total of 11,000 kilometres over the winter months, travelling to play games against teams from Vancouver Island, the Kootenays, Kelowna and Vancouver during their difficult 32-game hockey season. The Cougars used to be comprised mainly of players from Prince George, but this year they’ve changed their name

and their recruiting focus. They’ll ice players from cities all over northwest B.C. The Northern Cougars are a young team, comprised of mainly of 16 and 17 year-olds in a league that allows 18-yearolds to play. Though they may take a few lumps this year, the core group should be together for the next 2-3 seasons. In addition to the

regular season, the Cougars will travel to two major tournaments, including the prestigious Mac’s tournament in Calgary. “The Mac’s tournament is a really high profile showcase tournament, with a lot of college and university scouts, so the girls will be trying to impress when the get there,” Desjardins said.

We’d like to welcome Jacklyn to our talented team of estheticians here at Cloud Nine! Jacklyn has been doing esthetics for 6 years and is trained in reflexology.

Team Blue wins the Ryder Cup

By Nolan Kelly Smithers/Interior News

The annual Ryder Cup competition at the Smithers Golf and Country Club came down to its most exciting finish in its 15 year history this weekend. Team Blue and Team White battled for two days but at the end of the competition they finished tied with 12 points apiece. When it was all said and done, Team Blue came out on top in the playoff after Tanner Olson out duelled Tyler Steen on the first and 18th holes. “These matches were really close,” said Team Blue captain Chris Herkel. “Nobody really ran away with it, the tournament came down to the last matches.” Play began on Saturday morning, with an alternate shot format for nine holes, followed by a best ball format for nine holes. At the end of day one Team White led by a single point. Day two finished with 18 holes of one-on-one match play, basically, a shortened version of

the professional Ryder Cup. Each team gained one point from winning their matchup over their opponents. With only two pairings left on Sunday, Team Blue trailed by two points, but both Herkel and Tanner Olson won their matches to send it to the playoff. Twenty-two players were selected for the tournament based on their performance at various tournament throughout the summer. After the 22 were selected, team captains Chris Herkel and Steve Kerbrat selected the teams and drew the match ups. “You just never know how it is going to play out when you are picking guys. Some are playing well in the lead up to the tournament and others aren’t.” The golf season is quickly coming to a close in the Bulkley Valley, but not before the biggest tournament of the year, the Northern Open, this coming weekend. The practice round goes on Friday and the actual tournament will be held over three

Adult guitar camp brings together all abilities By Ryan Jensen Smithers/Interior News

The Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society continues to do its part to nurture and grow the musical talent in the area. Last Thursday, the BVFMS wrapped up its popular Adult Guitar Camp, which was preceded by the Youth Guitar Camp. “The purpose of the camp is for the learning and education of others and promoting music in the Bulkley Valley,” said BVFMS member Karen Diemert. This was the BVFMS’ 16th annual Adult Guitar Camp. A public concert

was held at Hudson Bay Lodge Aug. 17 prior to the beginning of the camp that saw both youth and adults perform together. The adult camp ended with a private concert. There were a total of 23 participants in the adult camp, which was led by Bulkley Valley musicians Sharon Carrington, Jenny Lester, Mark Thibeault and Ben Brookes. Headlining the camp was accomplished guitarist Doug Cox, from the Comox Valley. But Diemert said it’s the little things that set it apart from other similar guitar camps. The setting at Camp Caledonia is first rate and they always have a

special theme evening during the week. This year, there was a Ukrainian night where participants were served cultural dishes by a costumed staff. The small group sizes and welcoming atmosphere allowed brand-new guitarists to be in the same classes as those who are more accomplished, Diemert explained. “This year, we have four people who, before they got here, had to learn how to hold a guitar,” she said. “We keep the numbers small enough that the instructors can do oneon-one instruction as well as teach in small groups.

Mark Thibeault leads one of the sessions during the BVFMS’ Adult Guitar Camp last week at Camp Caledonia.

GDC sued by Prince George construction company By Jerome Turner Hazelton/Interior News

“There is no basis to their claim,”

The Gitxsan Development Corporation is being taken to B.C. Supreme Court by Prince George-based Blackwater Construction Co. Ltd. for potentially more than $600,000 after the latter failed to receive payment for work done on the northwest transmission line. GDC was under contract with BC Hydro signed July 4, 2013 to clear a portion of the northwest transmission line. The Gitxsan Northwest Transmission Line Joint

-Rick Connors Gitxsan Development Corp., CEO

Venture, a combination of the GDC and Vancouver-based Brinkman Forest Ltd., was created to handle the hiring of companies to clear the NWTL. GNTL hired Blackwater to do the

necessary work on the NWTL. After completing a substantial amount of the work agreed upon in the contract between Blackwater and GNTL, Blackwater entered into a subcontract in mid-September, which is where GNTL and Blackwater start to disagree about matters, according to the B.C. Supreme Court file. Blackwater incurred the expenses for work completed for GNTL and wishes to be awarded money for work they would have completed had they not been dismissed. What it would have cost Blackwater to complete the GNTL project will be

determined in court should the plaintiffs win the civil suit. “There is no basis to their claim,” Rick Connors, GDC CEO, said. “They was hired under contract to do certain work on the NWTL in Gitxsan territory. We ended the contract when they did not perform the work required - it’s that simple and straightforward. We honoured and continue to honour the terms of the contract - [Blackwater] did not.” Robert Gunnarson of McLean and Armstrong LLP is set to represent Blackwater. A court date has yet to be determined.

SIR ALFRED SMITHERS SUCCUMBS TO ILLNESS Former Chairman of Grand Trunk Railway Board Dies at Age of 74 Years Canadians Have Kindly Recollection of His Efforts on Their Behalf (Canadian Press Cable.) London, Aug. 22 – After a lengthy illness Sir Alfred Smithers, former chairman of the Grand Trunk Railway board, died here today, aged 74 years. The late Sir Alfred Smithers’ association with the Grand Trunk railway naturally brought him into contact with many prominent Canadians, and while many of these had little disposition to be attracted to the proposals which he, following his duty, submitted to them, yet there will be few among them who will not have kindly recollections of his individuality. Hard Field to Hoe The late Sir Alfred certainly had a hard field to hoe with skeptical Canadian government representatives on one side of the water, and stockholders yearning for impossible dividends on the other. Even at that, the most dolorous of Grand Trunk stockholders meeting here were always grateful for the words of sincerity with which the chairman pressed the claims of the concern. Although he must have been often dismayed by the attitude of Canada towards the old Grand Trunk railway, yet he never spoke publicly with the slightest disrespect of anyone opposed to him. With all his anxieties and disappointments over the railway, he was always ready to voice belief in Canadian integrity. He had many business cares besides the Grand Trunk railway, but he did much work for the benefit of those less fortunately placed.

VOH tune up fireworks regulation By Amara Janssens Hazelton/Interior News

Fireworks could be sold legally in the Village of Hazelton this year, just in time for Halloween. During the regular council meeting held last Tuesday, on August 20, council discussed a request to allow the selling of fireworks three times per year in the village. According to the B.C. Fireworks Act, selling fireworks is restricted to between October 24 and November 1 and

council isn’t interested in going against the letter of the law. Another factor is the village would need to consider the implementation of a fire bylaw to ensure compliance. However, bringing in a new fire bylaw means the fire department would need to be onboard for enforcement, something the village said could be a challenging request for a volunteer department. “Trying to enforce it is a little bit unrealistic,” Tanalee Hesse, Village of

Hazelton interim CAO said. Sam Turner requested the special permission, but stated in her letter to council she understands other people’s reservations. “I totally understand everyone’s complaints and concerns with the irresponsible behaviour of a few people,” Turner wrote. “Before I even got the phone call to remove the fireworks I was trying to think of ways to eliminate some of the problems but still be able to sell to the people that used them

properly and safely.” But council received two letters by concerned residents complaining of fireworks around town. The letters listed problems with the fireworks being set off at all hours, their effect on pets, and safety. Council said they will meet with the volunteer fire department to discuss a bylaw before a decision is to be made. Additionally the VOH said they will talk with the Gitanmaax volunteer fire department, as the two have a cooperative relationship.

Lac-Megantic to receive funds from VOH By Amara Janssens Hazelton/Interior News

The Village of Hazelton has agreed to send some financial help to the town of LacMegantic, Quebec. During the last council meeting on August 20, council discussed a letter

that was sent from Mayor Gerry Furney of Port McNeill on Vancouver Island. “Our Town Council has agreed unanimously to contribute a dollar for every citizen in our community to help you in meeting the many challenges that lie ahead,” Furney said.

The Interior News

“We are asking all other Municipal and Regional Councils of Canada through their various associations to join us in this tangible and practical way.” Council agreed to send one dollar for every resident of the Village of Hazelton for the cause, which works out to about

$250. Tanalee Hesse, interim CAO for the village said they will do a bit of research to see exactly what capacity the funds would be used in. “[Money] to town to support rebuilding,” she said as one way they would like to see the money used.

Wilp Si’Satxw celebrates 25 years of purification By Jerome Turner Hazelton/Interior News

Wilp Si’Satxw, meaning the house of purification in the Gitxsan language, held a celebration marking its 25th anniversary last Saturday. Since its inception in April 1988 the lodge has provided a place for more than 3,000 people to begin their healing process and end addiction to drugs and alcohol. Staff and current and former clients were in attendance to share what the centre means to them. Resident psychologist Dr. Peter Muser, who has worked at the centre for 20 years, shared what it is like for clients, but also how the clients change the staff. “We learn a lot from the people that come here,” Muser said. “It’s not a one way street. It’s hard to know who benefits the most because we see so many transformations here.” The clients go from being in a self-made bubble, unwilling to share anything to being part of a family,

which is the other clients and staff, Dr. Muser said. One former client, Tyrone Watts, is a true testament to the power of what the centre offers. Watts told the guests about his journey away from drugs and alcohol more than 20 years ago, which led to him becoming part of the Wilp Si’Satxw team. “I was suicidal and didn’t see no reason to carry on,” Watts, who lost both of his legs, said. “But then I realized that my daughter was going to need somebody to raise her. I’m so thankful I was able to reach out for help because now I have grandkids. I wouldn’t be here today if I didn’t ask for help.” Wilp Si’Satxw began as an idea in 1984 by Emsley Morgan and it took nearly four years to raise the more than $5 million to build the centre. The next session begins in early September, Graham Sampson, counsellor, said. Award-winnning blues artist, George Leach, performed to close out the event.

Sisters, right to left, Deanna Tootoosis, Sienna Wright and Kellie Wright-Tootoosis enjoyed some bannock while listening to the presentations at the 25th anniversary of Wilp Si’Satxw, a healing centre near Kitwanga. The sisters are part of the family session at the centre, which wraps up next week. Jerome Turner photo

Four northwest soccer teams travelled to Seabird Island, near Langley, B.C. to play for a chance to become Team B.C. at the North American Indigenous Games next summer and two were victorious. The U15 and U17 teams will both take their talents to Regina, Saskatchewan next July to compete against teams from across Canada and the United States. The U15 team, coached by Chris Daniels and Brennan Patsey, was the first team to win the gold and they did it in dramatic fashion. “We were down 1-0 late in the game and we tied it

up,” Daniels recalled. “Then we were awarded a free kick and Junior [Clark Matthews Jr.] put it away for us with about five minutes to go.” Joel Patsey and Richard Hillis took home tournament all-stars in the U15 division. The U17 team was coached by Ryan Muldoe and Warren Maitland, who were somehow able to turn the tide against a team that had beat them earlier in the day. “We lost to the team we beat in the final 4-1,” Muldoe said. “I think it was our worst game, but we bounced back and took care of business when it mattered most.” The U17 won the final 4-1. “It was a team effort all around,” Muldoe said.

Damon Fladmark and Charles Patsey earned all-stars in the U17 category. The U13 team, coached by Stuart Barnes placed second and the U15 girls team, coached by Pansy Wright-Simms, placed fourth. Toni Muldoe was the main organizer who was instrumental in enabling the team tryouts four weeks ago, plus the manager for the U15 and U17 boys’ teams. “We didn’t have much time to bring things together,” Muldoe said. “But it was all worth it. All the players got to see where they stack up in B.C. We have a lot of work to do before next summer.” The 2014 NAIG will host more than 6,000 athletes competing in 15 different sports.
