The preliminary results of the two Sept. 7 referendums show voters who turned out to the polls opting for tax increases to support expanded recreation-and-cultural, and search-and-rescue funding. There were 571 votes in favour and 318 against making the change when asked if they support South Cariboo Recreation changes to bring more arts, culture and sports activities under the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) function (including the District of 100 Mile House). The overall recreation area tax for next year is expected to increase by about $20 per $100,000, moving the current total rate to about $62 per $100,000 assessed property value next year. The South Cariboo Search and Rescue (SCSAR) referendum had an even more overwhelming success with 943 votes in support of the change and just 121 in opposition, but it involves a much smaller tax impact of less than a dollar per $100,000 (based on 2013 assessments). 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall says he is “very happy” with the results of both referendums.

Nashville company to purchase Ainsworth Carole Rooney Free Press

After 63 years in operation that began with a single sawmill in 100 Mile House, Ainsworth Lumber Co. Ltd. is being sold to United States forestry giant LouisianaPacific Corporation (LP) for $1.1 billion US. Ainsworth president and CEO Jim Lake says he understands, and expects, it will be “business as usual” with “definitely no significant change” to its operations or employees. “We think it is all going to be very positive for the people. In general, the company has a bigger platform – it’s very strategically focused in the field we play in. So, long term, it’s going to give a better financial strength to manage this through the cyclical markets that [the industry]

Louisiana-Pacific CEO assures sale is ‘best’ for 100 Mile OSB plant tends to be in.” The local facility is one of its two plants with unique technology suited to serving the Japanese market, which Lake notes is an important distinction. “We believe the deal is very good for all of the operations in the company, but specifically for 100 Mile, because LP is very interested in the Asian markets and 100 Mile is a significant supplier to Asia.” The Grande Prairie plant also ships to Asia, but he says “the bulk of it” comes from 100 Mile House, as well as several other speciality items. “100 Mile is also very strategic with

some of our other value-added products, specifically the products that we sell into the engineered wood business. And, that is all part of why LP likes us – they like our mix of products and our geographic channels that we go [in] to the markets. “I’m sure they have no intentions of changing that; if anything, they are going to want to grow from where they are.” Founded by David Ainsworth in 100 Mile House in 1950, the forest company expanded by leaps and bounds until it went public in 1993, and built its first oriented strand board (OSB) plant just off Exeter Station Road. Today, Ainsworth is a leading manufacturer and supplier of oriented strand board in Canada, with four manufacturing plants across British Columbia, Alberta, Continued on A4

Flight 21 cairn unveiled Crash victims’ families recall feelings of love and loss


Carole Rooney Free Press

About 50 people attended the emotional unveiling of the Canadian Pacific Flight 21 monument at the South Cariboo Visitor Centre on Aug. 31, many of them family members of crash victims. The concept for the stone memorial cairn was conceived by Ruth Peterson to memorialize and recognize the 52 people who lost their lives in a tragic plane crash 48 years ago near Dog Creek, but at an easilyaccessible site. Remnants of the Douglas DC-6B remain at the crash site, which was searched for and located many years ago by Didi Henderson, who as a young child lost her father, Wallace Emo, in the crash. Didi, Ruth and others raised funds or donated time and materials to build the cairn near the 100 Mile Marsh. “It’s something that’s long overdue, so I’m really grateful that Ruth Peterson took it on to get the ball rolling,” says Didi. “I think it’s helping more people know about the event, even this long afterward, and that’s important because it was actually quite a major air disaster and part of the local history. “Personally, I think it’s good to have that locally for the older people that can’t go out to visit the actual crash site anymore.” That includes her mother, Kyra Emo, 83, who Didi adds could not make it to the unveiling but will come out later to visit the cairn, as will her two sisters. Didi gave one of the speeches at the ceremony, and her son, David, read the names of the crew and passengers aloud while Curtis Wolfe played a violin and 52 white balloons were released – one for each person who perished. Many family members could not attend, so she explains another event is planned for July 8, 2015, the 50th anniversary of the crash. There is an informal memorial and debris remaining at the heavilywooded crash site, and Didi notes the families ask those with no direct connection to the incident, who visit the area, to please leave everything intact, as some folks have been removing items. CP Air Flight 21 was flying from Vancouver to Whitehorse on July 8, 1965 when it crashed about 40 kilometres west of 100 Mile House. All of the passengers and crew perished in the crash, which an inquest determined was the result of a bomb explosion, the source of which was never determined. Didi says it is difficult to explain

Leah Henderson, left, sat with her sister-in-law, Roxanne, and tightly held the hand of her mother, Didi, when they joined about 50 others to listen to her brother, David, read aloud the names of the 52 victims of C.P. Air Flight 21 at a monument unveiling ceremony near 100 Mile House Airport on Aug. 31.

The Flight 21 memorial monument near the 100 Mile Marsh was established to honour and remember the 52 people who lost their lives in the July 1965 plane crash, and give their families a place to visit.

what the cairn means to the daughters, sons, spouses, siblings and grandchildren who lost loved ones in the plane crash. She notes the event also had “a lot of impact” on the numerous local people who assisted with the terrible search, which ultimately found no survivors.

Chuck Shaw-MacLaren was one of those who searched tirelessly, and says all of them suffered much emotional turmoil that continues to this day. “For the people who were all killed, I think [the cairn is] well deserved.” He adds its central location is

key to raising awareness about the tragedy. “People are starting to talk about it now. And, it’s ‘when did this happen’?” Didi adds the cairn can also bring a sense of history and understanding of the disaster to the community at large. This tragic loss of her father has affected her for almost 50 years, but she notes some folks have forgotten it ever happened. Wallace was en route to Whitehorse in his exploration work as a doctor of geology, Didi explains. She lived in Montreal at the time, and her mother never spoke of the incident, so Didi says when she first visited the South Cariboo, she was unaware of the significance. Didi then called Kyra to say she was in the middle of B.C. in a place she’d “probably never heard of – 100 Mile House,” and a moment of silence ensued. “She said ‘Didi, that’s where your father died’ ... it kind of gives you goose bumps, when you go ‘wow, there was a connection’.” Didi notes she moved to the community a few years later, after she married. More information on the crash, cairn and family stories is on Facebook under C.P. Air Flight 21.

The permitting process for low-impact exploration activities became more efficient on Sept. 1, and is available online through FrontCounter BC locations. Certain activities are now authorized on projects with an active Mines Act permit, and proposed exploration work timing is extended by up to two years. More information is at Mining/Permitting reclamation/Pages/ DeemedAuthoriza tionsGuidance.aspx.

Supreme Court, to ensure that the court is equipped to manage caseload pressures and access to justice. The total cost to support one Provincial Court judge is about $1.4 million annually, including the judge’s salary and costs for court administration, sheriffs, prosecutions and judicial support.

Any number of events might call for an area to be evacuated – a pipeline rupture, a dangerous goods spill, a flood, a fire – but 100 Mile House Emergency Support Services (ESS) chose an earthquake. Director Doug Belcher says his team has the training, and it’s time to put it into action. “The training isn’t any good unless you can use it firsthand. That’s what we’re doing this drill for.” Players and coaches from the 100 Mile House Wranglers hockey team served as evacuees in ESS’s mock disaster drill at the 100 Mile House Curling Club on Sept. 9. The drill had a lot to do with organization, information management and logistical support, Belcher explains. ESS helps people find accommodations in the first 72 hours following a disaster. They’re the people you don’t ever want to see, but when disaster strikes, they’re the people you turn to for help. “Frontline workers find out where they fit in and what we can tweak,” Belcher says of the drill. “We’re giving them [evacuees] information, not having them go to the hotel or the restaurant, but we’re giving them the information and they can see how it actually works.” Recent events, such as the flooding in Alberta or the train derailment in Lac-Mégantic, underscore the diversity and volatility of disasters and the need to be well prepared. “It could be anything.

Members of the 100 Mile House Wranglers hockey team served as evacuees for a mock disaster drill set up by 100 Mile House Emergency Support Services (ESS) at the 100 Mile House Curling Club on Sept. 9. Here, ESS director Doug Belcher, left, and Kenny Nordstrom, right, looking over as Jayden Syrota writes down personal information required in an emergency.

The training isn't any good unless you can use it firsthand. That's what we're doing this drill for." – Doug Belcher

There’s so much stuff going by [on the highway] people don’t know about. We have the railroad here. We have three pipelines here.” 100 Mile House ESS is part of Emergency Management BC (EMBC) and includes people from all over the 100 Mile House area. They cover from 70 Mile to 140 Mile. Belcher says he believes 100 Mile House has the facilities to respond should

disaster strike. “We’ve gone around and signed on hotels we can call. We get quite a few calls in the winter time when there’s a single house burnt out. We look after those people for three days, too. Sometimes it takes a couple of days to get (insurance). We’ve done five this last winter.” Devastating events, such fires or accidents, often draw a crowd, but sometimes the best option during a disaster – such as a dangerous goods spill on the highway – is to stay where you are, Belcher says. He points to the “shelter-in-place” guidelines from EMBC that state go indoors immediately, close all windows and doors, turn off the furnace, air conditioners and exhaust systems,

and listen to your radio or TV for more information. “They’re really pushing that now because there a lot of gas leaks and stuff like that and the idea is to stay in your house and seal it up and make sure everything’s fine and we know where you are.” In 2010, a handful of ESS members responded to a huge forest fire west of Williams Lake. “It was a real learning experience for all of us and for the whole province because there was language and health [factors to consider] and accommodations were nil because they had so many police and firemen in town.” Belcher also talks about the forest fire that swept through Barriere

Heavy hail hits north of 100 Mile Damage severe at 108 Mile Ranch, South Cariboo Regional Airport

Carole Rooney Free Press

A hailstorm wreaked havoc at 108 Mile Ranch and other areas north of 100 Mile House when golf ball-sized hail peppered down just before 6 p.m. on Sept. 3. Witnesses and affected residents in several nearby communities reported a large number of dented vehicles and broken windshields, and folks are facing wait lists in attempts to book them into local repair shops last week. South Cariboo (108) Regional Airport manager Nick Christianson says all of the 11 aircraft parked outside at the airport suffered damage – some of it significant – after all of them had also been damaged by hail a couple of weeks earlier (Aug 17). This second storm hit after initial repair estimates were prepared for some of the planes, which, he notes, must

now be redone. “Now, the damage is way worse. Some were relatively minor, but some were fairly extensive. The estimate I had on just one of the aircraft last time was $43,000, so the damage is quite significant. “I would easily estimate it could be a [total of a] couple of hundred thousand dollars damage between the two hail storms.” Christianson adds he heard about heavy damage from the hail happening at Rail Lake cabins and properties. Comments heard around town reflected localized storms that saw huge hail at 108 Mile Ranch west of Highway 97, 103 Mile Lake and Rail Lake. Large, but less damaging, hail occurred at The Hills Health Ranch, while Exeter Road had smaller, but heavy hail (reportedly a foot deep near Ainsworth’s OSB plan) and pouring rain, but no hail,

was experienced near Deka Lake and other points south of town. The Hills general manager of business development Len Doucette says the hail there lasted for six minutes in a storm that raged for about 15 minutes with subsequent rain and wind. “We did get some pretty remarkable-sized hailstones here, but it wasn’t quite as bad as the 108 itself, on the northwest side. It was just terrible out there.” The polycarbonate roof over the deck at Doucette’s own house was smashed to bits when the huge hail stones slammed right through it, he adds. “Quite a few vehicles

were damaged as well, [including] my pickup truck and my travel trailer, and a couple of my friends had flooding. “There is definitely going to be a lot of insurance claims.”

Open fires allowed in Cariboo Fire Centre At noon on Sept. 3, the open burning prohibition in the Cariboo Fire Centre (CFC) was rescinded due to a decreased risk of wildfires. Although open fires will be permitted throughout the CFC, the Wildfire Management Branch (WMB) is asking the public to remain vigilant with any type of fire use, including open burning and campfires. Despite the recent cool and wet weather, the fire danger rating can quickly change to “high” or “extreme.” Homeowners and industry personnel are encouraged to take the following precautions with outdoor burning activities: • Ensure that enough people, water and tools are on hand to control the fire and prevent it from escaping. • Do not burn in windy conditions. The weather can change quickly and wind may carry embers to other combustible material and start new fires.

• Create a fireguard of at least one metre around the planned fire site by clearing away twigs, grass, leaves and other combustible material. • If you are planning a large burn, consider conducting smaller burns around the perimeter beforehand to create a fuel break and help stop the fire from spreading beyond its intended size. Each of these fires should be kept small and must be completely extinguished before starting a new fire. • Never leave a fire unattended and make sure your fire is completely extinguished and the ashes are cold to the touch before you leave the area. There have been 68 person-caused wildfires in the CFC this season, out of a total of 307 fires. If you are planning to do any large-scale industrial burning or conduct a grass burn more than 0.2 hectares

(Category 3 fires), you must obtain a burn registration number ahead of time by calling 1-800-797-1717. Venting conditions should always be checked before conducting an open burn. If conditions are rated “poor” or “fair,” open burning is restricted. The venting index can be found at www.env. epdpa/venting/vent ing.html. In British Columbia, the Wildfire Act specifies a person’s legal obligations when using open fire on or within one kilometre of forest land or grassland. If an outdoor burn escapes and causes a wildfire, the person responsible may be held accountable for damages and fire suppression costs. Anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a ticket of up to $345, or if convicted in court, be fined

up to $100,000 and sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person may be subject to a penalty of up to $10,000 and ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. To report a wildfire, a non-compliant open burning or an unattended campfire, call 1-800-663-5555 tollfree, or dial *5555 on a cell phone. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, conditions and restrictions, visit the WMB website at British Columbia residents and homeowners are encouraged to read the B.C.

Referenda passage good news


Classroom stability and learning focus


ast week, more than half a million British Columbia children went back to school. The first week back is a special time when everyone – from kindergarten to Grade 12 – shares in the excitement of the year ahead. This is when students, parents and teachers set objectives and settle in to work together. For our government’s part, Premier Christy Clark has set clear goals: pursuing long-term labour peace, moving B.C.’s Education Plan forward, and building on our commitment to skills and technical training. I know we all want to find lasting labour peace that will allow everyone to focus on what matters most: helping every student learn and succeed. We will continue to pursue our framework for a 10-year agreement with teachers. The British Columbia Teachers Federation has asked to bargain directly with government on

provincial matters and that’s students learn the same way being done. or at the same pace and that Stability is equally learning is more than just important for school memorizing facts. support staff, represented As a result, the B.C. by CUPE and other unions.

he passing of two separate referenda, both of which involved tax increases, on Saturday (Sept. 7) was good news for the South Cariboo community. While nobody likes to pay more taxes, the public vote in favour of the recreation bylaw amendment and a new search and rescue function will assist community growth and safety. Providing annual funding for the South Cariboo Search and Rescue Society (SCSAR) was what some like to call a “no brainer.” This group of volunteers has been providing both search and rescue services for a number of years in the South Cariboo and has received little in government grants and has been left to do most of its own fundraising. Necessary equipment and training costs have accelerated over the years, and for less than $1 per $100,000 assessment, SCSAR can provide more training for its volunteers, as well as up-to-date equipment. This will not only provide residents and visitors with better search and rescue services, but also allow the volunteers to move forward with public education. Saturday’s preliminary vote totals on this referendum were 943 in support and 121 against. The vote on the Cariboo Regional District’s recreation bylaw change to encompass more arts, cultural and sports activities under the CRD’s function (including the District of 100 Mile House) was much closer. It also involved a stiffer increase at around $20 per $100,000 assessment, which is expected to reach around $62 per $100,000 assessment next year. Preliminary numbers show this referendum passed with 571 in favour and 381 against. Many people, who wanted to see this referendum pass, were worried the increase in taxes for folks outside of the District of 100 Mile House boundaries would not be looked upon favourably. However, enough folks in favour of increasing sports, arts and cultural funding showed up to the polls to swing the pendulum in their favour. This particular bylaw amendment has been five years in the making because it was realized that folks from the outlying communities were using the local recreation facilities in significant numbers, but District taxpayers were bearing the brunt of maintenance costs. However, we think there is an important positive impact the passing of this referendum will have on our community. The extra funding will help our youth and seniors become more engaged in our community, and it will help keep us all connected in the big 3 every community needs to prosper – sports, arts and culture.

post-secondary programs and apprenticeships. Furthermore, we recently appointed a new Superintendent for Trades and Student Transitions to assist districts in expanding partnerships with industry and post-secondary institutions. As students demonstrate everyday at school, dedication is the path to achievement. As another school year gets underway, our government is dedicated to pursuing lasting labour peace, transforming an already great education system, and growing skills and technical training in every district. These efforts will keep more students on track to graduate and better prepared for the opportunities ahead – whether they have set their sights on technical training, university, or jumping straight into the workforce. Peter Fassbender is the B.C. education minister.

Reader concerned about 'saving' Fish Lake Tailing storage facility seepage and treatment appear to be centre of debate To the editor: The Environmental Review Hearings for the proposed mine at Fish Lake have concluded, and after following the sessions either in person or on line, I realize much of it was a repeat of the last review in 2010. The difference this go-

around is that the risks, both to the environment and to the taxpayer, appear even higher. The new plan by Taseko Mines to “save” Fish Lake brought forth serious concerns from not only independent consultants, but those representing

federal and provincial ministries. The British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines concluded in their submission that “Despite [Taseko’s] modifications to the project, MEM believes that the project presents significant environmental risks

Federal Conservative government hurting northern families To the editor: The Conservative government’s mismanagement of the North has made its cost-of-living to soar and caused shortages of basic services, hurting families and jeopardizing the economic potential of the region. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s bungling of adjustments to the federallyfunded Nutrition North program has sent food prices skyrocketing, some reportedly as high as 250 per cent. This makes the cost of living increasingly out of reach for families. Grossly inadequate housing has left too many without a place to live. Nunavut, alone, needs an estimated 3,000 new housing units and another 90 each year simply to keep up with population growth. Too many communities still lack access to fast, reliable Internet service, under-


mining business development and skills training. A lack of basic health and mental health services is undermining the foundations of communities – the very basis of their prosperity. With bountiful natural resources and a quickly growing population, the North is building a strong economy. Yet its full potential cannot be realized if families cannot afford healthy food, cannot find a place to live and cannot get the supports they need. Mr. Harper needs to be more than a tourist when he visits the North for his annual Arctic photo-op. He should get in touch with the everyday realities of Northern Canadian families and commit to providing them the same opportunities other Canadians enjoy. Yvonne Jones, MP Liberal Northern Development critic

due to the uncertain ability to limit and collect Tailing Storage Facility seepage and to effectively and economically treat water to maintain water quality in Fish Lake and its tributaries.” Repeated again and again were the potential for adverse effects, inadequate modelling, insufficient information and a lack of data. We now know of the risks

of tailings seepage ultimately reaching the Taseko and Chilco rivers and having the potential to adversely affect 25 per cent of the Fraser River sockeye salmon run. This would present severe economic losses to the communities downstream, coastal fishing communities, and the province of B.C., in addition to the loss of the salmon themselves. After having attended the

hearings, it is obvious to me the Tsilhqot’in are unified in their opposition to the proposed mine. Without coming to agreement with First Nations, which other companies have learned is essential for balance of a proposal, the future does indeed look bleak for the region. Steve Monk 108 Mile Ranch

Customer service appreciated To the editor: I want to recognize one of your local businesses – Country Tire. While on vacation, I (luckily) stopped in 100 Mile House to fuel up and have dinner. When I pulled into the Save-On-Foods parking lot, I discovered three of the studs on my boat trailer had sheared off and all others were loose. I was directed first to another tire shop, and although they would have liked to help, they were just too busy and called Country Tire for me. Country Tire was also very busy, but said if I could limp

the boat and trailer to their shop they would see would could be done (my apologies to the logging truck drivers who had to follow me up that hill at about three km/h). A kind lady stopped and assured me I was on the right road and went ahead to let them know I was coming. Once at Country Tires’ shop, owner George Ebrune greeted me with a big smile and let me know they would get me back on the road ASAP. Well, as luck would have it, they couldn’t locate the proper studs for the wheel so George told me to just get comfortable and camp in

his yard. The next day, they did get the trailer wheel repaired and I was thinking, “boy this is going to hurt the old pocket book,” but once again, I was pleasantly surprised and felt Country Tire did me more of a favour than made money on the repair. Considering I was a firsttime customer and from out-of-province to boot made it even more special and appreciated. I just want to send out a huge thank-you to George and his staff.

ocal politicians from across British Columbia are in Vancouver, Sept. 16-20, to participate in the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. There will be trivia reported as news, such as the cost of hotels. Suggestions to license mobility scooters or lower speed limits to 40 km/h, dreamed up in Vancouver Island retirement locales, will be rejected by delegates from the rest of the province. Serious discussion will revolve around a report by a UBCM executive committee to reshape the financial relationship between the province and local governments. If this proposal gets the support it deserves, Premier Christy Clark’s government will be asked to undo a couple of decades of political meddling in that relationship. One problem for local governments is they depend on property tax, a stable source of revenue but one that has no relationship to the property owner’s ability to pay.

Richmond, co-chair of the UBCM committee, is concerned about new water and flood protection legislation the province is preparing to impose. His district and others like it have thousands of kilometres of riverfront, with relatively few property owners. Interior communities also want BC Hydro to pay something for power lines, as is now being done with some aboriginal territories. Local politicians will be expecting a sympathetic ear from the new version of the B.C. Liberal government. Former Quesnel councillor Coralee Oakes is the new community, sport and cultural development minister, with direct responsibility for local government issues. And one of the original members of this UBCM committee was former Langley City mayor Peter Fassbender, who is now minister of education.

the province Man ‘lucky to be alive’ after grizzly bear attack BELLA COOLA — Jerry Lacerte still isn’t sure how he survived a Sept. 6 sudden attack, but he’s still amazed that he escaped. “I shouldn’t be alive,” Lacerte said as he was preparing to be released from hospital. “It’s not fun to dance around with a grizzly bear.” Lacerte was heading east on Highway 20, just above Thorsen Creek, at about 8:15 am Friday morning. He said he just caught a glimpse of the bear out of the corner of his eye before the attack. “She was about 50 feet behind me on the other side of the road,” he said. “I turned and she was galloping towards me.” Lacerte had just enough time to turn around and tried to make himself look big, but she charged on. “She grabbed my arm and knocked me to the ground and started mauling my face and head,” he said. “It was like being hit with a sledgehammer.” Lacerte was just about knocked out by the bear, but managed to recover quickly enough to punch her in the nose. “When I punched her she let go,” he said. “Then I just covered up my head and tried to protect myself.” Lacerte played dead and was rescued almost immediately afterwards by a passing vehicle and transported to the hospital.

Coyote kills dog in Westbank KELOWNA - A miniature pinscher dog was killed in a coyote attack in its his fenced yard Sept. 2, warns Conservation Officer Ken Owens. He said the coyote hopped over a six-foot high fence to get at two pets in the downtown Westbank area. Although he says normally spring is the worst time for pets being killed by coyotes, because the parents are trying to feed their pups as well as themselves, he said there’s another spike in the fall as the parents teach those pups to hunt. There wasn’t anything the dog’s owners did wrong, he said, but he does warn residents to make sure pets are inside for the night and that no pet food or other attractants are left out where coyotes could get at it.

Raising taxes is OK for the soccer fields because the children need more healthy things to do here. I am indifferent on the search and rescue issue; I don’t know if we need that or not.

I am glad they both went through. More support for the arts is needed, and search and rescue services are crucial.

The search and rescue I can understand, that is a small tax increase. I’m sorry to hear taxes are going up so much for the recreation function, we pay enough as it is.

I am pleased for the South Cariboo Search and Rescue Society; we need those services. The recreation referendum doesn’t affect me, as I live outside the boundaries.

C apsule C omments Exercises like swimming, jogging and cycling are aerobic because the muscles demand a continuous stream of oxygen to burn the energy stored in their cells. Strength-training exercises like weight-lifting are considered non-aerobic since the energy is derived mainly from biochemical reactions not oxygen. But both types of exercises are important to good health. Obesity research is going in the direction of the microchip. In the future, it’s hoped that a microchip can be implanted in the vagus nerve. This nerve sends hunger signals to the brain. The chip may be able to send another message to override the vagus message and, in essence, control appetite. Still a little way in the future. In Canada, over 3 million women and one million men suffer from migraine headaches. Sixty percent have more than one attack per month. One of the many triggers of migraine headaches is dehydration. You can avoid that trigger by drinking more water and limiting caffeine intake. Simple things but just may help.

RCMP on lookout for distracted drivers Distracted driving remains leading cause of motor-vehicle fatalities On Sept. 5, the B.C. Liberal government, ICBC and the province’s police forces launched a month-long distracted driving campaign using a driving simulator to demonstrate the impact of distractions behind the wheel. Distracted driving is the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in

British Columbia, trailing behind speed and impaired driving. On average, 91 people are killed each year in B.C. due to driver distractions, such as using a hand-held electronic device behind the wheel. Police are stepping up enforcement across the province and will be checking for distract-

ed drivers throughout September. A 2012 Ipsos Reid survey, conducted on behalf of ICBC, showed that B.C. drivers consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving, yet 40 per cent of those who own cell phones admit they’ve used their hand-held phone

The 25-year-old male driver was issued an Immediate Roadside Driving Prohibition for 90 days and his vehicle was towed and impounded for 30 days. Over the line Around 5:15 p.m. on Sept. 4, 100 Mile RCMP were dispatched to a two-vehicle incident on Highway 24 near the

Bridge Lake Store. Investigation determined that a rented Ford Edge was being driven by an Australian driver. As he crested the hill, the male driver drifted into the oncoming lane. A north-bound vehicle attempted to avoid the collision but the two vehicles impacted on the passenger sides, resulting in both vehicles being inoperable. None of the four vehicle occupants were injured and both vehicles were towed. The investigation into this collision is continuing.

must either turn a blind eye or lay charges when they encounter pot use, and ticketing would offer a new, more effective enforcement option. The chiefs also say pot users who are ticketed for simple possession would avoid a criminal record that can block them from international travel, getting a job or gaining citizenship. SFU criminology professor Rob Gordon called the resolution a significant shift that indicates police across the country – not just in B.C. – are ready for reform. “It’s the thin edge of the wedge. It’s the beginning of a move away from the criminal enforcement approach.” He said Sensible BC campaigners are pushing for change too fast and said ticketing would be part of a more gradual move to alter public thinking and government policy. “When marijuana policy is normalized, I think we’ll look back at this period and say this is when the process began for the shift from criminalization towards regulation and taxation. “If you go slowly, you can help people shift their thinking from their current belief that marijuana use is some sort of demonic activity to recognizing it as just another recreational drug that does minimal

Although Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been firmly against marijuana reform, federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s call for change this summer in B.C. re-ignited the issue.

Axed Higgins Lake aerator discussed 50% off 40% off

Carole Rooney Free Press

Higgins Lake residents unhappy to have recently learned their lake’s aerator will once again be removed met with Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operation (MFLNRO) Cariboo Region resource management director Rodger Stewart on Aug. 29. More than 30 people attended the meeting at the South Cariboo Business Centre, some of them Deka Lake residents who fish the neighbouring lake. The meeting was facilitated by CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett, whose 100 Mile House office ended up being too small to host the sizable group, despite the absence of seasonal residents.

in the lake. He talked about drilling a hole in the lake and testing it.” Residents agreed if the aerator is taken out, the minimum solution acceptable to them would be a written guarantee of a springtime stocking of catchable trout each and every year, she added. “I think everyone would be satisfied with that. “[But] we’d like to see the aerator stay; I mean, all said and done, it is just $7,000 [to maintain].” However, the area community groups’ fundraising efforts are already maxed out and many lake residents are seniors on fixed incomes, Sayenchuk explained, so it’s not feasible for them to take on this expense. “The costs of fishing licences and things like that are supposed to go toward these things, and then, we pay taxes, too.” Barnett said government and residents are

Kidney disease strikes families, not only individuals. THE KIDNEY FOUNDATION OF CANADA

Foreclosure – The Simplified Version

Many people think the law is “stacked against the little guy” – and many not so little guys wish that was true. The law of foreclosure is an interesting example. While it’s true that in most cases the little guy does lose his/ her house in a foreclosure, that’s a financial problem – not a problem with the law. What is interesting about foreclosure is how many obstacles the legal system puts in the lender’s way before the borrower loses his/ her house.

A foreclosure starts because a borrower has defaulted – usually by not paying the mortgage. Even then, the lender can’t take the borrower to Court until it has made a written demand for payment and given the borrower a couple of weeks to pay. If payment isn’t received at that point, the lender starts Court proceedings by filing appropriate documents with the Court. Then, before the lender can take further steps, it must usually have the documents delivered by hand to the borrower – and give the borrower 3 weeks to file reply documents with the Court. After that, a notice of hearing is delivered setting the hearing for at least 8 business days later. Finally, there is the first Court hearing. At the first hearing, if the borrower has any equity in their property, the Court will usually give them 6 months (called the redemption period) to sell or re-mortgage the property. Only after these 6 months can the lender take over the property – and even then most lenders won’t take the property because if they take the property, the borrower is relieved of any obligation to pay out the loan. Thus, after the expiry of the redemption period, most lenders will seek to have the property sold – and the borrower will usually remain in the home until a sale is made.

So how does all of the above help the little guy? If the lender tries to skip a step or makes errors in Court documents, the Court might simply throw out the lender’s case and the lender will have to start over again. Even if that doesn’t happen, it usually takes a minimum of 9 months (usually more) before the lender can force the borrower out of his/her house. During those entire 9 or more months, the borrower can sell the house or find a new lender and the foreclosure will be over. Article written by Centennial Law Corp. (Douglas E. Dent)

Free-wheeling fundraiser

‘Drive One’ event to raise funds for community service club Gaven Crites Free Press

The 100 Mile Lion’s Club and Sunrise Ford in 100 Mile House have partnered for an interesting event to help raise funds for a number of causes and projects in the community. In what is being called a “non-fundraiser fundraiser,” Sunrise Ford will pay people - $20 for five minutes – to drive a car, truck or SUV with the earnings going to the 100 Mile Lion’s Club. In essence, it gives people an opportunity to donate funds without donating their own personal funds. The “Drive One” event will take place between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at the SaveOn-Foods parking lot in 100 Mile House on Sept. 21. With the help of Save-On-Foods, a hotdog barbecue will also

be taking place. “Every year the club uses the money [we raise] for scholarships, donations to hospitals, children’s camps and Special Olympics,” says Neil VanderHorst, vice-president of the 100 Mile Lion’s Club.

“It’s all money scattered within the community to a few big projects and many small ones.” Ford is looking to give away $6,000, so they would like to attract 300 drivers. It’s a new fundraising

venture for the Lion’s Club, so they’re eager to drum up support for it. VanderHorst adds they’re trying to raise funds, and also awareness and interest in the club. “We’re always keen to look for new members.”

We wish to thank the community for supporting us in another year of

Nicole Weir, 100 Mile area mom, business worker, drama director, singer and member of the local Performing Arts Society, produced this music workshop. She also demonstrated her vocal talents during the concert.

Fishing success expected to improve LAC DES ROCHES

August is typically a challenging month for trout fishing at Lac des Roches. Warm water makes the fish lethargic or stay down deep while the abundance of natural feed in the lake offers a satisfying menu over the foreign flies, worms and spinners the fishers use as lures. Statistics don’t keep residents and their guests from trying their luck on the tempting shoals. Andy Fochuk, a longtime visitor to the lake, fishes regularly in the rivers around his home in Fort St. John where he claims to “throw in anything brown and fuzzy and catch a fish right away.” With a little extra advice from family and neighbours this summer, Andy successfully landed his first rainbow trout on Aug. 31. Local fishers claim the trout fishing will pick up in the cooler days of autumn, which have already begun lowering the temperature of the lake. Wolves to the north Several nearby wolf sightings have been reported by residents. On Aug. 31 at the junction of 201 Road and Wavey Lake Forest Service Road at Rabbit Meadow, a local family observed a pack of

The group also discovered remnants of a wolf-killed moose. With reports of cougars in the vicinity of Bridge Lake, residents must never forget the many wildlife hazards when living out on the edge of the wilderness. Logging underway The active logging just south of Lac des Roches may be out of sight but the distinctive sound of a feller buncher sawing its way through the forest definitely disrupted the tranquility of early

mornings at the lake for many visitors. Nylon tents and fibreglass trailers dotted throughout the neighbourhood housing sleepy campers during the Labour Day weekend offered little in the way of sound buffers from the heavy equipment working early in the mornings. Several visitors were actually looking forward to return to the quiet mornings they claimed they would find back home in the city.

Not many fleas in the Cariboo, but dog lice can be a problem

Dog Grooming

• By appointment only •

Daily, Weekly, Monthly Kennel Services Available

Fleas can be a great nuisance for dogs and cats living on the coast, but one of the many benefits of living in the Cariboo is that we are rarely troubled by these pests, and preventive measures against fleas are not necessary here. However, in place of fleas, we sometimes have dog lice - another small insect about the size of a flea, but slower moving and unable to jump. Lice will cause itching and scratching, and are very contagious between infected canines that are in contact with each other. Dog lice will not spread to cats or other animals other than canines, and the lice themselves do not spread other diseases. Lice are said to be species specific, that is to say that horse lice are only able to live on horses, dog lice on members of the canine family, and so forth. Often, owners of “lousy” dogs will be able to find the tiny insects crawling about on their dog’s hair, although they are often mistaken for fleas; their small size makes them difficult to identify without magnification. Lousy dogs can often be successfully treated with any product that will kill fleas, although it is very important to Quality dog treats treat all other dogs in made with contact with the infected natural ingredients, one, or the infection will preservative free and simply pass around again baked fresh. once the treatment has Dale Grinyer worn off. 250-791-6268 Box 611 Dr. Gord Laity Mile Ranch, BC Join me on Lakeland Veterinary Clinic 108 V0K 2Z0 Facebook

108 Mile Ranch artists open their doors for public tours

A number of artists in 108 Mile Ranch are opening their homes to the public on Sept. 14, giving visitors a special glimpse into where, what and how they create. The inaugural Studio 2 Studio Art Tour is a fundraiser for the South Cariboo Health Foundation (SCHF), with 25 per cent of all sales – plus all donations – from the self-guided tour will go towards buying new health-care equipment to serve the

South Cariboo region. The tour is on Sept. 14 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. “The challenges of technology, increasingly sophisticated equipment, plus new diagnostic and treatment procedures place additional pressure on limited resources,” says MJ Cousins, SCHF fundraising co-ordinator. “In response to staff needs, the South Cariboo Health Foundation continues to raise funds to support the delivery of high-quality health care in the South Cariboo

Last year, the local Rotary Club raised more than $20,000 at the event. Tickets are $75 each and include a charitable tax receipt of $40, Pinkney explains. “Most of the money we raise stays here either helping our local youth or the hospital or local organizations that financial help. “We are sending a student to Educo (adventure school) again this year.” It starts at 6 p.m. Only 200 tickets will be sold and although they’re not sold out yet, Pinkney advises people get their tickets early.

New faces to take stage

All country entertainment event raises money for local area promotion Gaven Crites Free Press

Cariboo Country Night has a reputation for showcasing great live entertainment, says organizer Mark McMillan. And this year, it’s no different. “Everybody who has been there in the past knows how good it was. “We always try to bring in at least one, if not two, new faces every year.”

Rae-Lee Fraser

New stars this year include The Hanson Family Singers from Oregon, which won the 2013 Kamloops Cowboy Festival “Rising Star” Award, and cowboy poet Rae-Lee Fraser from Barriere. “They play some really old type western music and some western swing,” McMillan says of the Hanson Family. Local entertainers include Ernie Doyle and Leslie Ross.

Now in its 14th year, Cariboo Country Night is an annual fundraiser for the Watch Lake/ Green Lake Business Association, which uses the funds for area promotion that benefits the tourism industry. McMillan has been involved for 14 years. “It’s a favourite every year. It started out, originally, I think the first year there was a petting zoo and some old-time horse-drawn equipment on display and it was around a campfire outside. It went over really well, but I think over the next couple years ... the entertainment moved inside and it sort of seemed nobody was interested in the animals and old equipment. “They just wanted to hear the entrainment. It turned into an indoor theatre type concert. “It’s all country entertainment.” The event goes Sept. 14 at the Watch Lake Community Hall. Admission is $25 and “includes the concert, the (steak) dinner and the dance.” Tickets are on sale at the Watch Lake Lodge, the 70 Mile Store and through McMillan. For more information, contact 250-456-2425, or visit www.cariboovaca “Normally we sell out,” says McMillan.

Ag centre seeks cold storage

The South Cariboo Agri-Culture Enterprise Centre is looking for donations of one or two fridges and a freezer in good working condition. Rita Giesbrecht says boosting its cold storage capacity will help offer a more consistent emergency food safety net. The centre gathers and temporarily stores perishable foods Rita for distribution through several Giesbrecht community food-supply agencies. The fridges can store more produce, such as from the Community Garden, while a freezer will help garner meat donations, which must be donated frozen and kept frozen. For further information, contact Rita at 250-791-6631.

“They’re the gladiators of the new millennium.” Rodeo announcer Keith Dinwoodie might have said it best when he addressed the close to 300 spectators in the stands at the Outriders Arena in 100 Mile House in anticipation of the British Columbia Professional Bullriders (BCPB) 2013 finals on Sept. 7. “Two thousand years ago it was man against beast in the Coliseum,” Dinwoodie said. “And 2,000 years later it still draws a crowd.” The BCPB event was a first for 100 Mile House and it was held in conjunction with the South Cariboo Community Fall Fair, which took place at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre Sept. 6-8. The championship saw 15 of the province’s top riders take a total of four rides on some of Canada’s best bucking bulls, supplied by local stock contractors Diamond D Rodeo Bulls and C-Plus Rodeos from 150 Mile House. Ryan Jasper of Riske Creek was the top bull rider of the weekend, taking home $3,040 by earning a total score of 241.25 points riding three bulls. Colton Manuel from 150 Mile House took second place and won $1,360 by riding two bulls for a combined score of 159.5. Levi Lawlor of Quesnel finished in third place and earned $932 for riding two bulls. “The bulls we’re a little tougher than the riders this weekend,” says Randy Brodoway, president of the South Cariboo Rodeo Association. “We have never had a crowd that impressed.” Bull rider George Archie of 100 Mile House was taken to hospital after sustaining injuries during a ride on Sunday, Brodoway said. “He got piled into the ground pretty good. He’s hurt, but he’s not wounded. “He has a sore head and a sore leg. He didn’t have any (bones) broke, so he’s good.” Brodoway called it a good weekend all around. “The crowds were great. The people who helped were awesome and the sponsors that did step up were awesome. “We didn’t have one complaint. Everybody enjoyed it. The fair board was thrilled we were there, Brodoway adds. “I want to send a thank you out to the public. Everybody deserves appreciation.”

CLINTON RIDER PLACES Dakota McColl of Clinton finished in second place, scoring a 74 in the junior steer riding category at the North Thomas Fall Fair and Rodeo in Barriere (Aug. 30-Sept. 2). McColl took home $212.94 from the event, which was sponsored by the British Columbia Rodeo Association. Monika Paterson photo

Wranglers even up pre-season record

Gaven Crites Free Press

The 100 Mile House Wranglers are 1-1 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) pre-season play going into their final exhibition game tonight (Sept. 11) at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. On Sept. 7, the Wranglers travelled to the Princeton District Arena to take on the Princeton Posse and came away with a 7-0 win. Goalie Kristian Stead kept the Wranglers in the game early on, explains general manager/coach


Doug Rogers. “We were outshot in the first period and (Stead) kept us at 0-0 after the first period. Stead has been playing extremely well in the pre-season and continued his strong play in this game.” The Wranglers lost their first exhibition game 4-3 against the Kamloops Storm on Sept. 4. “I don’t put a lot of importance or emphasis on exhibition games, win or lose. Most teams do not play their entire roster as it

will look on opening day. “[On Saturday], we went with a lineup that will likely be an opening day lineup, minus two or three changes.” Princeton did not dress their full lineup, Rogers adds. Colorado native Adam Shaner, 18, scored all three goals for 100 Mile House in their loss to Kamloops. However, it was another line that led the Wranglers offensively last weekend in Princeton.

“The line of Brady Ward, Kevin Raimundo and Darcy Flaherty played very well, with Ward picking up a hat trick. All three players on that line have significant KIJHL experience.” The Wranglers will meet the Storm again tonight (Sept. 11). Game time is 7 p.m. “We will provide some players with a last opportunity to make an impression to stick with the Wranglers. We are still at 28 players as of [Monday] and I would like Continued on A27

T-SHIRT MANIA TONIGHT The 100 Mile House Wranglers are doing something special for tonight’s (Sept. 11) pre-season game against the Kamloops Storm at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre (SCRC) at 7 p.m. To get into the game, folks must be wearing a Wranglers souvenir T-shirt, which costs $20. They are available at the Wranglers office at SCRC (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Central GM reception, and at the door, but get there early if you don’t have your T-shirt yet. It’s a great keepsake of the Wranglers first home game.

Golfers tee off at 108 Golf Resort annual tournament

Gaven Crites Free Press

It was a familiar name at the top of the leader board when the 2013 Cariboo Open drew to a close on Sept. 1 at the 108 Golf Resort. After 53 holes of play, four-time champion Shane Wilkie and firstflight golfer Tom Huth were tied for lowest score. On the last hole, Huth shot a double bogey, while Wilkie made par. “The final round wasn’t really good, but nobody played well in the final round, so I got away with one,” says Wilkie, who shot a total of 217 to earn his fifth consecutive Cariboo Open championship. Wilkie has been dealing with a shoulder injury this summer, so his participation this year was in question and he only entered the tournament at the last minute. “No excuses there,” Wilkie says of his shoulder. “Tommy [Huth] couldn’t find his ball [on the last hole]. So he ended up with a double bogey and kind of gave it to me. “It was a good weekend. I saw old faces and had fun.” The overall low-net winner was Ian Ross from Maple Ridge who shot a three-day total of 195. Andy Wahnschaff, 108 Golf Resort head professional, says the club couldn’t be prouder of the course’s condition and how the tournament played out.

Five-time Cariboo Open champion Shane Wilkie, right, and Ian Ross from Maple Ridge took home top honours at the 2013 Cariboo Open at the 108 Golf Resort on Sept. 1. Wilkie was the three-day, annual golf tournament’s low-gross winner with a total score of 217, while Ross was the overall lownet winner with a score of 195.

“There are a lot of people feeling invigorated about what’s happening here at 108. “I could say right now, with my 32 years experience in the golf business, I’m feeling comfortable the 108 is capable of hosting a PGA event when it’s in this condition. I’ve played in PGA events that have not been on a golf course as good as this one right now.” The 108 Golf Resort has been hosting the Cariboo Open since the early 1970s. A total of 108 golfers were entered this year and split into four flights. The top 5 low gross scores in the first flight belonged to Huth, Jeff Harris, Chris Seeley, Jamie Graissie and Chris Morley, while the top 5 low net scores in the first flight belonged to Richard Smith, Jim Laird, Scott Seeley, Jay Scott and Jeff Kendy. Low gross in the second flight went to Kevin

Guenther, followed by Shawn McManus, Tyler Williams, Al Sidor and Bob Garrow. Low net in the second flight were Eric Ohlund, followed by Gary Combres, Kevin Ploeger, Terry Palasty and Dennis Thompson. The third flight’s low-gross winner was Jim French. Brad Duncan was second, Jeff Perry was third, Bob Weiduwilt was fourth and Bob Evans was fifth. Low net in

the third flight was Lee Hansen, followed by Jack Rausch, John Baylis, Dan Hadden and Steve Herkovits. Fourth-flight lowgross honours went Jayson Harris, with John Savage in second, followed by Ed Cassie, Shawn Reid and Ron Thurston. Low net in the fourth flight was carded by Alan Kregosky, with Peter Messner, Dave Ross, John Mix and Grant MacDonald rounding

out the next four. Closest-to-the-pin winners were Messner (Aug. 30), Smith (Aug. 31) and French (Sept. 1). Longest drives were hit by C. Seeley (Aug. 30), Graissie (Aug. 31) and Chris Morley (Sept. 1). “The weekend was in one word: ‘Perfect’,” Wahnschaff says, while crediting the tournament’s success to local sponsors and volunteers. “We couldn’t be more proud of what we did.”

Rough riding in Kamloops

Gaven Crites Free Press

Motocross racers from the 100 Mile House area were among the dozens of riders making noise at the Whispering Pines Raceway in Kamloops during a two-day British Columbia Motocross Association event Aug. 31-Sept 1. Tyler Glover, 14, of 70 Mile House found success early on Aug. 31, finishing number 1 and then number 3 in the first two races in the Junior B division. However, in the last race on Sept. 1, Glover only found the dirt. Riding in second place during the second lap, he looked to pass the leader as they approached a jump, but he was cut off at the top of it and the bikes touched and that was the end of Glover’s racing that day. “It almost knocked me out,” Glover says of the crash. “Before I hit the

ground, my helmet came off. The bike stood up and the foot peg ripped off and I hit the ground face-first with no helmet on. “I had to go to the medical thing there. I busted the front of my helmet. I bit through my lip and did some nose damage. “The medic guy wouldn’t let me go. So, I couldn’t finish.” However, Glover finished in fifth place overall. It’s not bad,” he says of his standing. “I wasn’t too happy with the crash.” Brandon Watrich also raced in the Junior B division. Watrich, a former South Cariboo resident who now resides in Kamloops, finished third overall, earning third-, fifthand sixth-place finishes. Brad Perron of Lac la Hache and Patrick Griffin of 100 Mile House raced in the Schoolboy division. Perron finished sev-

enth overall (14 racers), going ninth, fifth and 12th. Griffin finished 12th overall. Brad Inglis, 30, of 108 Mile Ranch finished fourth overall in the Plus 25 division and seventh in Pro MX-1. After taking most of the season off, Inglis says it was a difficult weekend. “I crashed [in the MX-1] in pretty much every [race]. I kept [losing traction] with the front tire out on corners. Inglis says he is look-

ing forward to the next BCMA event in Williams Lake on Sept. 14-15. “I’m starting to race again pretty much every second weekend. I was a little bit out of shape. It’s hard to get back in it.” Despite the wipe-out and shot to the head, Glover says he is purchasing some new equipment and looking forward to Williams Lake, too. “I’m definitely going to be there.”

Ken Huber returns to 100 Mile ~ Blinds by Maureen ~ East meets West in national boxing championship tournament spirited, sportsmanlike and technical display of sparring, which is what Huber was looking for in his return to 100 Mile House. “He’s a top notch boxer, a top notch coach,” Huber says of Ricketts, who is pushing 60-yearsold and still holds his own in the ring. “I have trouble getting challenging sparring at home and I need to travel around and get what I can where I can from better boxers.” Ricketts will be in Huber’s corner in Langley on Sept. 13.

Gaven Crites Free Press

It wasn’t your average afternoon at Zeus Fight Science on Aug. 30. More than two dozen spectators filled the boxing gym in 100 Mile House and a Kamloops news camera captured the action as WBC Western Canadian cruiserweight champion Ken Huber stepped in the ring for a four-round sparring session with Zeus Fight Science owner/coach Kelly Ricketts. He was looking to fine tune a few things ahead of an upcoming bout for a national title. Huber is fighting London, Ont., boxer Renie Placid at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in Langley on Sept. 13 as part of the first WBC Canadian Championship tournament. Huber’s is one of 10 fights on the card, which features boxers represented by the Ontario Boxing Association and the BC Combative Sports Association – members of the Canadian Fight Sports Association, which has recently joined the World Boxing Council (WBC). “I’ve never met him,” Huber says of Placid. “I just know he’s the best in the East and I’m the best in the West. We’re going to meet in the ring and see what happens.” Huber, 29, was born and raised in 100 Mile House and now calls Kamloops home.

Gaven Crites photo

Ken Huber, left, sparred with coach Kelly Ricketts at the Zeus Fight Science Boxing and Fitness gym in 100 Mile House on Aug. 30. Huber, a Kamloops resident, is the current WBC Western Canadian Champion and was born and raised in 100 Mile House.

He operates a boxing gym there with his father, who, like a lot of Huber’s family, still resides in 100 Mile House. Huber’s amateur record is 27-4 and he’s been fighting since he was 24. “This is the biggest title I’ve fought for so far,” Huber says. “I fought in the Canadian Nationals in Cape Breton, N.S., for Team BC. I lost a close decision. I was pretty upset about that. “This is my second chance at a national title and I want it bad. I’ve been training hard. I’ve been working really hard for it. I’m visualizing the win.” Frank Araujo has been training Huber for the past year. “Tough as nails” is how he describes his fighter.


“He has a big heart. He won’t quit. You got to cut his head off for him to quit. “He’s beaten the best. He is the best. Each opponent he’s had, they’ve all been great battles and he’s come out on top.” Araujo also admits they don’t know much about Huber’s opponent, but says Huber’s fight plan stays the same. “In the first round,

we’ll feel the guy out and see what he’s about. Then it’s business.” Huber sees himself coming forward and pursuing his opponent in the ring on Friday night. “I’m a pressure fighter and I like to brawl. When I’m challenged, I fight back. I’m not a stick-and-move kind of fighter.” On Aug. 30, Ricketts and Huber put on a

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!

Heather Haynes and her dog, Lad, worked well together during the Third Annual Sandhill Lea Sheepdog Trial off Abel Lake Road on Aug. 31. Event organizer Lorne Landry says the event attracted 40 competitors and their dogs, as well as a couple of hundred spectators.

Sheepdog trial a success Handlers, herders compete at sheepdog trial at nearby Abel Lake Gaven Crites Free Press

Herding dogs were put to the test at the Third Annual Sandhill Lea Sheepdog Trial near 100 Mile House recently. Organizer Lorne Landry says the event – which saw close to 40 competitors and their dogs navigate an international sheep dog style course Aug. 31- Sept. 1 – attracted a couple hundred visitors and was very successful. “We had great weather and quite a few spectators. Everything went smoothly.” The competitors were divided into three categories, which include novice/novice (beginner handlers and beginner dogs); pro-novice (dogs and handlers who have moved up from novice/ novice, or for practiced handlers who are running a beginning dog); and open class (any dog and any handler), which held separate trials each day. Results first through third were as follows: Novice/Novice class: Lindsay Ibbotson and Zeus (Vancouver); Nancy Barker and Gwen (Chilliwack); and Sandra Hurst and Koda (Coquitlam). Pro-Novice class: Carol Nelson and Kale (Pink Mountain); Brian Nelson and Jake (Aldergrove); and Pam Boring and Sophie (Pink Mountain).

Open Class (Aug. 31): C. Nelson and Taff (Pink Mountain); Gayle Cochlan and Leah (Loon Lake); and C. Nelson and Jess (Pink Mountain). Open class (Sept. 1): C. Nelson and Jess (Pink Mountain);

Cochlan and Meg (Loon Lake); 3. B. Nelson and Pleat (Aldergrove). Landry says he plans to host the trial again next year on Labour Day weekend at his property on Abel Lake Road, located 10 kilometres west of 105 Mile.

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the loss of a devoted husband, amazing father, and loving grandfather. Born on November 12, 1936, in southern China, Yuk Kee passed away on February 1, 2013 in Vancouver, B.C. Yuk Kee immigrated to Canada in 1951, and he moved to 100 Mile House in 1956 to work as a chef at the Exeter Arms Hotel (now the Lakeview Inn). In 1968, he and his wife Ming opened the first stand-alone western Chinese food restaurant - the Four Seasons Restaurant - in 100 Mile. They owned and operated this successful business for almost 30 years until Yuk Kee’s retirement in 1997. He was a kind, honourable, and thoughtful man, and his legacy to all those he touched will be one of integrity, honesty, hard work, reliability, and friendship. He is survived and dearly missed by his wife Ming, sons Yen (Barb) and Hoover (Darcy), daughter Elaine, and grandchildren Stan, Kurtis, Megan, Sophia, and Brian. He is fondly remembered by friends, former customers, and family in Vancouver, 100 Mile House, and other areas of B.C. On February 8, 2013, a private service was held at the Glenhaven Memorial Chapel in Vancouver followed by interment at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Burnaby, B.C.



Sherry Lavonne Aug. 17, 1944 - Aug. 29, 2013

FITZPATRICK Constance Therese Marie (neé Vincent)

Aug. 1, 1960 - Aug. 30, 2013

Surrounded by her family and bathed in love, Connie succumbed to a valiant eight-month battle with leukemia at 1:07 p.m. She was joyfully greeted by our infant daughter, Morgan, upon transition. She leaves behind her devastated and grieving family: husband Marvyn, daughter Alyse, and son Keenan. She is survived by a loving host of family: mother and father Anita and Albert Vincent, sisters Brigitte (Dave) DeAngelis, Louann (Dan) Marshall, Anissa (Richard) Pelland and brother Ken (Colette) Vincent. Also left mourning are her in-laws: mother Elma Fitzpatrick, Morley (Debbie) Fitzpatrick, and Marlene (Rob) Cathcart, and Laurie (John) Monkley. An incredible host of beloved nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles and friends also grieve her passing. Connie was born in Selkirk, Manitoba; lived in St. Georges, and moved with her family to 100 Mile House. After graduation, she qualified as a medical office assistant and was employed in that capacity for many years. There were not too many sports she did not attempt, being most successful in badminton, curling and slo-pitch, all with an eye to being the best she could be. Where she excelled truly was as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, granddaughter and all-around relative. Her definition of family included friends from all walks of life. Her love of people was all inclusive. To have her on your side was to really know your back was covered. Towards the end, she was puzzled by how many people stated their love for her. The answer was simple: love begets love. On behalf of her family, we would like to extend our thanks to all those who have given so much throughout her ordeal. We cannot express how much our families, St. Ann’s staff and family, her employers (Drs. Triessman and Okano and staff) TRU and staff, and so many others lightened our burden. If anyone has been overlooked, please excuse the omission. There were and still are so many. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service was held on Sept. 5, 2013 at Holy Family parish in Valleyview. We gathered to celebrate a lovely person

Sept. 22, 1920 - Aug. 2013

Nick was born in Pragenau, Russia. His family left for Canada in 1925. They settled in the Peace River area of Alberta, near Grande Prairie. In 1943 the family moved to Delta, BC. Nick attended Peace River Bible Institute and later, following the war, graduated from Prairie Bible Institute. After returning to BC, Nick met his future wife, Hildegarde, and they were married on July 20, 1951. The newlyweds moved to Terrace, BC, where they planted a church and had their first two children: Esther and Kenneth. In 1955 they moved back to the lower mainland and shortly after, Stephen was born. Rodney and Cheryl completed their family in the years that followed. Nick worked in a plywood plant in Surrey and continued working for Weldwood when they moved to 100 Mile House in 1969. Nick and Hildegarde were very involved with the 100 Mile Evangelical Free Church. He served as Sunday School Superintendent for many years and both of them were vitally involved with the music in the church. Hildegarde was masterful on the piano and Nick had a beautiful tenor voice. In 2003, Hildegarde was taken home to heaven. Despite his incredible loss, Nick’s faith and commitment enabled him to continue to be a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Recently, Nick was allowed to take the last steps of his journey here with us. We are grateful for the time we have had with him. He has now rejoined all of his loved ones. We celebrate his life then and now. Funeral Services were held Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013 at the 100 Mile Evangelical Free Church, Officiated by Pastor Pat Stitch. Nick was laid to rest beside his beloved Hildegard at Valleyview Cemetery, Surrey BC on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 The Goertz family wish to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Carefree Manor, Dr. Schoeman and the nurses and staff at 100 Mile Hospital for their professionalism and compassionate care of their dear father during his final days, and also to Pastors Pat Stich and John Marshell and the people of the 100 Mile Evangelical Free Church for all of their help with the memorial service and reception. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements. 250-395-3243 Condolences can be sent to the family care of

Soapbox racing comes back to Clinton CLINTON Katie McCullough 250 459-2172

Clinton residents won’t want to miss the Clinton Soapbox Races on Sept. 21 in Clinton. Build your own soapbox and compete in the competition there are categories for children, teens, adults and teams. For more information, contact Desiree Loiselle at 250-8529875 or desireeloiselle@ Please register in advance. There will also be other events in the park,

including a clown, and possibly a bouncy castle and fun sumo wrestling. Soapbox racing was held in Clinton in the 1960s. In those days, they would close down Highway 97 and race from the top of the hill near Big Bar Lake Road down towards Clinton.

Hockey registration For hockey players in Clinton who would like to play hockey in Ashcroft this winter, registration for the Thompson Cariboo Minor Hockey Association is currently underway. Registration forms need to be submitted immediately, as teams are being made up. Registration forms can be printed off at thompsoncariboo

Teams range from pre-school to midget age divisions. For more information, contacts are on the website or the TCMHA Facebook page. This is a great opportunity for children to play organized hockey because, unfortunately, Clinton does not have enough children in each age group to have its own teams and be a part of an association or league. Several Clinton youth currently play hockey in Ashcroft. It is possible that, depending on the makeup of your child’s team, number of Clinton players and coaching, there could be some ice time in Clinton for certain teams, as there was in 2012 for the ban-


tam team. Most teams practice two to three times per week in Ashcroft in the evenings with games and tournaments on weekends. There is also an all-girls team of mixed ages.

Rodeo update During the summer, several Clinton youth have been competing in the British Columbia Little Britches Association circuit. Kailey Dube, Tayler McCullough, Wyatt McCullough, Bacardi Zimmerlee, Hailey Ambler, Emma Blain and Colby McCullough have been travelling all over B.C. competing in various events. The last rodeo of the season was held in Williams Lake on Sept.

7-8. Many of these youth will be attending the awards banquet in October and have placed in the top 10 in B.C. in their events. The circuit takes

them from Langley in the south to Prince George in the north. At the final rodeo of the year, Tayler, Kailey and Wyatt all came home with awards for the

Community Garden enjoys productive season Learning to grow organically important for sustainability Gaven Crites Free Press

Bruce Madu can spend hours here. “Sometimes I’ll bring a book, put the watering on, and sit and read my book and listen to the water. It’s really nice being here at 5:30 or 6 a.m. in the summer because the birds are up and they’re singing. “It’s peaceful. I relax. I just work away.” One recent morning at the 100 Mile House Community Garden, Madu stood over his double plot and pointed out different vegetables he has in the ground – a row of potatoes here, he says, adding parsnips, cabbage, carrots, turnips and some beets, and romaine lettuce down there. “It’s the first time I’ve tied beans in here. I just picked a few, but they’re not doing what I expected.” With the potatoes, however, he’s never seen anything like it in his 40 years of growing them. “We had friends in for dinner a week ago. I came down and dug out two potatoes like that,” Madu says, holding his fingers about eight inches apart. “They fed eight of us.” Madu and his wife, Sandy, moved to 100 Mile House four years ago. He’s been co-ordinator of the community garden for the last three years, along with Linda Savjord. “Between the two of us, we make it work.” Savjord’s house overlooks the community garden, which is located on property that historically belonged to the Emissaries of the Divine Light on Heron Ridge Road behind the Red Coach Inn. And just like the Emissaries did

in the past, gardeners there today do their best to grow organic, local produce. The community garden is supported by the South Cariboo Agri-Culture Enterprise Centre and the Community Enhancement and Economic Development Society (CEEDS). They’re groups

that work to promote food security in the 100 Mile House area, Madu explains. “We try to encourage food sustainability and teach people if they want to come and learn how to garden, we’re prepared to help them. We use organic growing as much as possible and look after

the land.” Currently, the garden has 24 plots being tended by a number of people in the community. Dawna Lace has had a plot in the garden since it opened to the community close to seven years ago. She’s also a community support worker with the Cedar Crest Society

for Community Living and has a handful of adults who regularly work at the garden and some have a small plot of their own. Lace says it’s important for people to see where their food comes from. “They do the whole thing from

digging in the compost, to weeding to planting to harvesting. “A lot of them have never seen a carrot come out of the ground or a potato come out of the ground. We take the produce we have and they learn how to cook it and they see how wonderful it tastes.” And it’s good exercise on top of that, she adds. “A lot of our people don’t like getting their hands dirty. The whole aspect of getting their hands in the soil, digging and pulling weeds, bending over – it’s an eye-opener for a lot of them.” That includes Christian Samson, 22, a self-described “beginner at this.” “I thought it was going to be easy, but it isn’t,” Samson says of tending his vegetable plot, which includes beets, lettuce and carrots. “One thing I learned is you never know. It’s unpredictable.” Samson plans on planting more food next year. Although it really depends on how early fall weather hits 100 Mile House, Madu says the community garden should be cleaned up and shut down by the end of September.

“I would like to see more people get involved,” Madu says, looking ahead to the start of the next growing season. “We’ve got room to put in another 15 plots if we ever have the demand. It’s $20 a season. Plus a $10 cleanup fee that’s refundable if they clean up their lots.” Madu tries to store as much food as he can. “It keeps our grocery bill down. It’s a lot of work over the summer. You’re tied down, but it’s certainly worth it.”

We’re hoping to raise anywhere from $500 to $10,000, Hughes says, adding it’s an event the whole community is getting behind. “The 2014 grads [from Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School] will be at the movie night. Because it’s going to be dark, they’ll be there as personal [ushers]. “They’re going to hang around the parking lot and help families pack their lawn chairs and get them to their spots. Afterward, they’re going to walk people back with flashlights if they need it.” Hughes asks that people leave their pets at home and refrain from smoking in the movie crowd. “Because it’s outside, we can’t enforce it. I just really hope people respect that. There will be a ton of kids there.

Drive with caution: school's in session 108 Mile Ranch

Reg Berrington 250-791-9235

Students are back in school, so we hope all drivers have adjusted their speed and passing habits to accommodate the students in their quest to get to school safely and not to be worried about the traffic. We all know that in some instances it is OK to pass a school bus, but remember there are school children standing at the side of the road waiting for the bus, so caution at all times cannot be stressed enough. Road lines visible At long last, we have our yellow road lines and white crosswalks at the 108 Mile Ranch and they look great. We now have some definition on the roads, so perhaps poor drivers can stay on their side of the road and drive more responsibly at the posted speed. Ditches need work We have had some heavy rains recently, creating some flooding to a number of properties especially the driveways. Many of the roadside ditches have not been cleaned out for a number of years. They are slowly filling with sand and debris from the road sweepers. Many of the drainpipes are almost covered over and the rainfall never seems to be in the ditch, but just runs off into people’s driveways

causing damage. Perhaps it’s time for the 108 Mile Ranch Community Association (RCA) to contact Interior Roads Ltd. to investigate this problem. Break-and-enters There have been a few instances of someone breaking into storage facilities on private properties lately. In one case, someone cut large entrance holes in the back of storage tents, but was disturbed when the owner’s dog started barking a warning. So please keep an eye on your belongings.

This would be a good time to get a neighbourhood watch in place. If you observe anything, call the RCMP at 9-1-1 or the nonemergency number at 250-395-2456. Let’s take care of each other. CCLF news The Solid Rock Café (music at its best) located at 4930 Telqua Dr. is coming up again on Sept. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Rock Youth Centre on the Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship grounds. This event is moving to a seasonal (four times a year) versus a monthly time slot, with the next

scheduled one slated for Dec. 20. Admission, coffee & desserts are by donation – come and bring a friend. The Band of Brothers is having a fall kickoff barbecue baseball night at the Rock Youth Centre at 6 p.m. on Sept. 17. For further information contact Marie at the church office 250791-5532. RCA news The 108 Mile Ranch Community Association

(RCA) Resident’s Coffee Club is once again meeting the first and third Thursdays of the month from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the main hall of the 108 Community Centre located off Telqua Drive. There is a $2 drop-in fee for coffee, tea and snacks. The first fall meeting is scheduled for Sept. 19 and all 108 residents are welcome. Continued on B6

Annual food drive underway Local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints congregation members will be going door-to-door in 100 Mile and some of the 108 Mile Ranch, collecting food for the 100 Mile Food Bank Society on Sept. 14. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints branch president Neil VanderHorst says they will be dropping off the forms to people’s homes in 100 Mile and the 108 this week. Donations will be collected from people’s porches between 10 a.m. and noon on Sept. 14 and then they will take the food to the Food Bank. The local church’s effort is supporting the Food Banks British Columbia Third Annual Food Drive, VanderHorst says, adding they need the help of local residents fill the

shelves of local Food Bank. For more information, visit www. It’s easy to donate to this worthy cause, he notes. “Just put unopened, non-perishable food items in a bag with the form attached, and place them on your doorstep.” “We will not ring your doorbell on collection day, and we do not

solicit financial donations.” He asks folks to place their bag of food on their front doorsteps and have them ready for pickup by 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 14 If your donation is not picked up by 12:30 p.m., or for further information, folks can call 1-855-742-2833 (Saturday only).

As the end of summer approaches, the growing season comes to an end. But don’t put your garden and lawn care tools away just yet. This is a good time to scrutinize your garden and yard for landscape maintenance purposes. Providing fall preparations for next year’s growing season will help ensure a graceful entry into the following spring, with a green lawn and garden space nearly ready for planting. Just follow the helpful tips below: Don’t wait until spring to divide your overgrown perennials; do it now. This not only provides a jump start for quicker blooms, but healthier blooms, as well. Slugs breed in the fall. If slugs are a big problem for your garden, this is a good time to set out traps. You can make a slug trap by filling an empty (unwashed) tuna tin with beer. Place the tin in a shady spot in the soil so that the rim is at ground level. Maintain the trap every few days by emptying it out and refilling it. Because trees and shrubs continue to lose moisture in the winter, give them a watering boost. Deeply water trees and shrubs before hard frosts begin. If you have flowering shrubs, some of them might need fall pruning. Spring-flowering shrubs begin to develop flower buds that won’t open until the following spring. These type shrubs should be pruned early; immediately after flowering. Pruning them too late risks removal of developing buds for next year’s flowering season. Summer-flowering shrubs, however, develop buds during the early spring. Prune them during the dormant season; just as fall turns to winter or late winter is fine. Clean woody debris and fallen leaves out of ponds and off your yard. Use the leaves raked up from your lawn as mulch for flower beds. Not only will tender perennials be protected through the winter, but the decaying leaves will help build soil nutrients. Dry, excess leaves can be bagged in airtight bags to add to compost piles later. By taking the time in the fall for garden and lawn maintenance, you will reap rewards the following spring.
