Centre against Revelstoke on Dec. 7. The crowd tossed the bears on the ice following a goal by the Wranglers. The bears were donated to Loaves & Fishes Outreach, RCMP Victims Assistance, 100 Mile House Food Bank Society and the 100 Mile & District Women’s Centre Society.

Be mindful of holiday pressures The holiday season can be a wonderful time of celebration and family; however, many people also find it to be a challenging period of stress, pressure, and even deep sadness. Sometimes this can become overwhelming and folks, or their family and friends, might need someone to talk to and a little help with how to cope with issue. South Cariboo Community Planning Council (SCCPC) executive co-ordinator Lea Smirfitt says it is such a busy time that it is easy to get overwhelmed, but she notes there is help available. “As we get caught up in the season, we must be mindful of others and of yourself. Sometimes we get caught up and forget to take time for a break. The season has become so busy; [taking a break] has become increasingly important.” Part of her message is the importance of

Fashion show irons out prom dress options

Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy invite you to enter

Dry grad fundraiser showcases locally-sourced formal wear collected for the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society. Johnson thanks all the event volunteers, including local singer/ songwriter Candace Copley for performing at the event and Nicole Weir at Village Hair Studio for styling the models’ hair ahead of time. She notes Dobson brought in a lot of extra dresses just for the fashion show. Next spring, the fashion show will feature more clothing appropriate for graduation and from multiple vendors – the details for which are still being ironed out. “If the Dry Grad group next year wants to try it again – I think it was really fun.” Johnson adds it was also “kind of neat” to show the students all these formal clothing options are currently offered in 100 Mile House, and to do it well ahead of the grad ceremonies.

Carole Rooney Free Press

The 2014 Dry Grad Formal Fashion Show brought more than 100 people to Martin Exeter Hall on Dec. 4. Holly Johnson, who helped organize the show, says it won’t replace the spring 2014 Dry Grad Fashion Show, but rather enhance it by offering some formal wear earlier. She adds this show exclusively featured many of the fancy gowns and elegant tuxedos available from Class Act Formals in 100 Mile House. Johnson consulted with its owner, Rhonda Dobson, along with other regular show vendors on how to best present the formal attire options for prom. “Rhonda mentioned it’s difficult in spring because all the girls and the guys usually have their dresses and tuxedos already by that time. “So, I said ‘well, what if we do a small one just focusing on prom and have it early. Then the kids will be aware of what we have to offer here in our town’, and that is what we did. We showcased Class Act Formals just in a small fashion show.” Approximately $720 was raised through ticket sales over and above event costs, which will be split evenly between Dry Grad 2014 activities and the Cinderella’s Closet program at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School.

Lac la Hache Tomahawks defenceman Drew Rose (#55) moved the puck along the boards in a game against the Terrace River Kings at the Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena on Dec. 7. The Tomahawks are not having a great year in the Central Interior Hockey League, but coach Al Navrot says the play of Rose was a highlight.

Tomahawks trounced by Terrace Gaven Crites Free Press

It’s been an ugly season for the Lac la Hache Tomahawks, and things didn’t get much prettier when the Terrace River Kings came to town on Dec. 7. Terrace scored three goals in the first, four in the second and one in the third, while Lac la Hache managed only one in the middle frame and two in the last. When the final buzzer went at the Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena, it was 8-3 for Terrace. A game with the Houston Luckies on Dec. 8 was cancelled because the Houston team bus had some mechanical problems. Against Terrace, Lac la Hache played with a short bench, but oddly, they got better as the game progressed, coach Al Navrot explains. Kevin McNab, Donovan Nicholas and Wilfred Robbins scored goals for Lac la Hache. Defenceman Drew Rose picked up two assists, while Ellery Brigham picked up one. Navrot adds it’s been a tough year all around for the Tomahawks, which sits last place in the Central Interior

Hockey League (CIHL) with four points and a 2-9 record. “It’s very frustrating. It’s been hard.” The Tomahawks are currently dealing with a number of injuries to key guys. But there are some bright spots this season, the coach says. He mentions the play of Rose who won the award for top defenceman last year. “We depend on him

a lot. He’s one helluva hockey player. He’s a very strong and motivated individual. He

Organizer Lisa Evans says there was an excellent turnout for the Fifth Annual Christmas Craft Sale at The Hills Health Ranch on Dec. 8. She notes there were 25 vendors on site, and it was busy in the morning and afternoon with a bit of a lull at lunchtime, which allows everyone to catch their breath. Evans says each vendor donated an item for the raffle and the proceeds were earmarked for the 100 Mile House Food Bank Society. “We were thrilled with the number of people who came out – vendors and guests alike. Every year, it gets better and better, and it’s a great place to Christmas shop. “More and more people are spreading the word and more people are coming out every year. It’s great because we make some money for local charities, which change every year.”

ed a new image/look or a facelift,” says realtor Darrel Warman. Every couple of months, RE/MAX will be doing something different for the community with our realtor-generated charity fund, she adds. “We want to let the community know we

have plans for continued support to the community year round and not just at Christmas.” Through the yuletide season, they are busy collecting toys and food to make Christmas a little brighter for folks in the community who could use a helping hand.

“We really want to give back to our communities, so we wanted successful results and decided to buy toys – lots of toys.” As in the past, Warman says individual RE/MAX realtors have donated substantially throughout the year to the company’s Give Back To The Community Fund. “So we bought toys and all of them were purchased locally thanks to Donex, Pharmasave,

Century Home Hardware and Wildman’s Outdoor Store. Warman notes all of the toys and all of the donations will be distributed throughout the communities of the South Cariboo. “We do encourage and welcome others in the community to drop off donations of food or gifts at our office (#2441 Alder Ave. - next to Subway) Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Loyalty point ban hits B.C. pharmacies

Jeff Nagel

Black Press

The CPBC hopes a points ban will result in patients choosing a pharmacy or pharmacist on their own merits, not inducements. Some patients on Canada Safeway’s Facebook page write they may switch to closer pharmacies as a result of the ban on issuing Air Miles points for prescriptions at Safeway. Victoria senior Randy

McEwen says he doubts anyone would delay filling prescriptions for the sake of a bonus. “Most Canadians are smart enough to make rational decisions,” adds McEwen, who uses prescription points to fly his children in from Edmonton. “This ban discriminates against the elderly and the chronically ill.

British Columbia pharmacies are now banned from handing out loyalty reward points to customers for prescription drug purchases. The measure, which went into effect on Dec. 2, is already drawing outrage from shoppers and has sparked a legal challenge from Canada Safeway and Thrifty Foods, both arms of the Sobeys group that offer popular loyalty card points. The College of Pharmacists of B.C. (CPBC) first proposed a ban in 2012, but shelved it amid strong public opposition. However, the college’s board re-examined the issue after the provincial election and unanimously approved the ban Sept. 20, arguing loyalty points are a powerful lure that can alter some shoppers’ buying habits and potentially harm their health. The bylaw prohibits various gifts, rebates, refunds and other incentives, not just loyalty points. The CPBC states such incentives are inappropriate “kickbacks” to customers. “After careful consideration, the [CPBC] still firmly believes that paying patients for prescriptions is unprofessional, unethical and unsafe,” it states on its website. The CPBC argues some patients may go without their medicine until they can fill a prescription on a loyalty point bonus day. It also believes patients with thirdparty insurance who don’t pay out of pocket may keep refilling a prescription after they no longer need it just to collect more points. The CPBC calls that a drain on limited health care dollars and states drugs not used by the intended patient may

be abused by others or diverted to the illegal drug trade. It states paying customers a kickback undermines pharmacists’ integrity and the credibility of the profession. “Patients do not expect to receive payments for other health services they receive, and drug therapy should not be the exception to that rule.”

Free Press

The night was filled with wonder and magic when the multitude of stunning stars, which adorned the 100 Mile District General Hospital, was lit up for the first time on Nov. 29. The South Cariboo Health Foundation’s (SCHF) Starry Nights campaign is successfully raising funds for the local hospital. The light-up ceremony to spotlight the campaign throughout the holidays attracted more than 50 people to witness the stellar spectacle just after the Santa Claus Parade. In a twinkling, “Snow Queen” Hilary Gosnell waved her wand and the stars lit up and sparkled like diamonds. Spanning all across the front of the hospital – and even on lamp standards in the parking lot – some stars have detailed designs and others are awesome in sheer size and numbers. SCHF president Mary Shennum says lighting designer Tanya Lucente did a wonderful job in laying out the designs to maximize the overall effect. “We thought the starry display was fabulous, and we already have ideas for making it even more spectacular next year.” Folks reported afterward that having the Eclectica Choir heralding the celebration with Christmas Carols was “a very nice touch,” she notes. “It was our first year, so we thought we’d learn a lot about what

Star-studded hospital glows brightly From 11

However, Shennum says she hopes folks won’t forget the fundraising does need to continue to reach its goal. She would like to remind everyone how important it is for SCHF to continue providing important hospital equipment, which often fills provincial funding gaps to meet patient’s needs. One way or another, we will all benefit from supporting good local health care, and our medical needs only increase as we get older, she notes.

To give back a nice present to the South Cariboo community and our local hospital, which give so much to the citizens, Shennum asks folks who haven’t yet done so to consider becoming a Health Star or Founding Sponsor. Several easy options are available: simply mail a cheque for $50 or more to South Cariboo Health Foundation-Starry Nights, Bag 399, 100 Mile House, B.C., V0K 2E0; drop it off at the South Cariboo Community Health desk (use rear entrance at hospital); or call M-J Cousins at 250706-2926 to arrange for your donation.

The ‘true biggest fish’

Gaven Crites Free Press

Starting Dec. 15, tickets will be available for the Lone Butte Sporting Goods 2013/14 Fishing Derby, which goes all season until March 31. Having the event run over three months, as opposed to the traditional one-day derby, is a fresh idea by organizers. It’s something they tried last year and a lot of people like this version, says store owner Mark Roseboom.

MARK ROSEBOOM

“It’s all season long and the true biggest fish of the season wins. We see some big fish. “Last year’s rainbow was 13 pounds. I think the lake trout was in the

25-pound range. That’s what we’re looking for.” Tickets are available at the store. Entries cost $5 for each species, which include kokanee, rainbow trout, lake trout and burbot. Sixty per cent of the pot will go to the heaviest catch per species and 40 per cent to a mystery weight.

Having the derby run over a longer timeframe means anglers can fish at their convenience, and not have to worry about missing it if the weather doesn’t co-operate or they can’t make it for whatever reason, Roseboom explains. “We want people to be happy and not have to make it on one day

when it’s -30 C.” Entries can be caught from any of the local lakes – Region 3 and 5 – and more than one fish can be weighed in. Fish must be caught in accordance with BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations. For more information, call 250395-2217 or e-mail lbgun@hotmail.com.

Public Advisory Notice Cariboo Region Lake Aerators

The British Columbia Conservation Foundation (BCCF), under contract to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, advises that commencing in December lake aerators will be in operation on: • Irish Lake • Skulow Lake • Simon Lake The purpose of the lake aeration program is to minimize fish mortality associated with reduced oxygen levels during the winter months on lakes at high risk. During periods of operation, the aerator units will create areas of open water and weak ice. The BCCF would like to remind residents to stay away from safety fencing placed around the aerators. Also, as a reminder to anglers, it is unlawful to fish within 100m of any active aeration unit (see pg. 10, BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis). Please direct questions or comments regarding aerator operation to: Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Williams Lake (Cariboo) 400 - 640 Borland St. Williams Lake, BC V2G 4T1 Telephone: 250-398-4530 Facsimile: 250-398-4214
