Teachers commence strike action The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) begins Stage 1 job action today (April 23). Cariboo Chilcotin Teachers’ Association president Murray Helmer notes this first stage is administrative in nature only. “So really, I don’t see many instances where students will notice a difference at all," Helmer says of the job action. Teachers will continue to write report cards, communicate with parents and participate in volunteer extracurricular activities, he says, adding parents will know what's going on with their

children. Helmer says it is “frustrating” that more than six weeks after teachers voted on a strike mandate, government’s offer remains almost unchanged, with wage increases at about 6.5 per cent over three years. Government came back to the table with “a little bit” by adding a half a per cent to its proposed

salary increase, but most of that left teachers losing something else, he explains. Education Minister Peter Fassbender says the teachers’ union has not budged, either, from its initial position in this round of 13.5 per cent over three years. Helmer says that number is a guess – probably “on the high side” – since it depends on inflation. The BCTF actually asked for three per cent a year for three years, with a variable cost-of-living review every six months, he explains. Continued on A4

Firefighting training boosted South Cariboo Recruit Academy offers advanced standards

A3

FAST bytes New ag minister

Carole Rooney Free Press

What determines if a firefighter can enter a burning building, or must fight the blaze from the outside? 100 Mile House FireRescue (OMFR) fire chief Darrell Blades says it partly depends on their particular level of training. “Each individual department in the Cariboo Regional District has its operating policies and guidelines.” However, most firefighters who currently hold the level of certification to enter blazing buildings are OMFR members, he notes. Blades adds several new firefighters and some existing members of various local volunteer fire departments are now undergoing training with the instructors at OMFR’s South Cariboo Recruit Academy. These include new firefighter recruits, as well as those expanding their certification levels, he explains. “I have four new recruits plus a junior [youth] firefighter who are going to take it. This is our first trial in a long time with a junior firefighter.”

Premier Christy Clark recently appointed Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick as agriculture minister. Letnick previously held this role prior to last year’s ministerial shuffle, and was at the helm when the District of 100 Mile House was gifted a mobile red-meat abattoir. He announced the news directly to mayor and council on Feb. 22, 2013. Letnick replaces Pat Pimm, who has stepped down for health reasons, but continues as Peace River North MLA. Submitted photo

100 Mile House Fire-Rescue fire prevention officer Shawn Nelson, left, explained proper donning and doffing of personal protective equipment at the 2014 South Cariboo Recruit Academy on April 12. These new recruits for three area fire departments are (clockwise from left) Adam Ramsay, junior firefighter Hunter Peever, Kevin Deleau, Larry Pawloski and Jesse Darby.

Blades says the recruit training is spread across two months, and includes classroom and handson learning. It involves two weekends a month, and then the local recruits do more training at their regular Wednesday practices, while other fire department members come in for training and testing on Thursdays, he notes. The fire chief explains the BC Basic

Firefighter program trains people for exterior firefighting only. “My crews carry on to the [National Fire Protection Association] NFPA 10-01 – which is the standard for firefighters’ professional qualification – and components of that give us the ability to fight interior fires. “With the recruit academy, we are trying to train all the fire department members to the same level in the

South Cariboo.” “We haven’t finalized the training standard yet, but it is pretty close to being done. It has an Exterior standard, an Interior standard, and then an Officer standard that are obtainable by our regional departments.” It may take some time to get that officially signed off, but continuous progress is being made, he explains. This way, when

departments are on scene together in a mutual-aid scenario, training levels can be identified by the colour of the accountability tags their members wear. “We are all training to similar standards, but we just stop at the level that each department provides.” Over the past year, some members of the Forest Grove Fire Department have come in to OMFR for

NFPA 10-01 with the Interior standard, he adds, plus a few extra specialized courses, including hazardous material (HAZMAT) training and Incident Command System (ICS) awareness. “So, all our departments are training together, depending on what they need. “We will recognize them as each hall is able to go Interior ... and finish their certifications.”

District applying for fuel mitigation money The District of 100 Mile House will apply for funding to perform fuel management work in its community forest near Lone Butte. District Councillor Bill Hadden and staff recently met with forestry consultant Bruce Morrow and Ministry of Forests, lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) staff to consider fuel management initiatives within the 100 Mile Community Forest (OMCF). “Last year, we learned there is funding available to do work outside of the District boundaries but within our [OMCF] area,” says Hadden. “That was something we didn’t previously know we could do.” The funding application will target about 40 hectares close to Lone Butte and Horse Lake, an area designated as an extreme hazard in the event of wildfire.

The District previously received approval for a grant to develop a prescription for a fuel management program along Inman Road in Lone Butte. Now, it can apply for up to $400,000 in funding for parts of the community forest located outside of its current prescriptions and District fire protection boundaries. The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) had done some work under its own prescriptions, but this potential funding would allow it to move in and clear out more dead wood from the area. Hadden says it would support its manual fuel reduction work, which involves crews going in with chainsaws, cutting and stacking all the dead wood and then burning the piles when it is safe to do so. “Some of the stuff is tied up [in the trees], some of it is still standing; we

are doing mixed stands.” While this area falls within the CRD boundaries, it can only apply for $600,000 in similar grants for its entire region, so this could be a significant amount to boost its mutual fire prevention efforts, he adds. Hadden explains it is all part of a joint project between the District, the CRD and the various local fire departments. The initiative began in 2007 with a Community Wildfire Protection Plan. This non-prescription funding is based on a 90 per cent cost share, but the District’s 10 per cent share may be “in-kind”, while prescription funding is a 75/25 split, including in-kind. “I don’t know yet what the costs will be; obviously, it is bid work.” Wildfire Management Branch crews are utilized when they are not busy fighting fires, which also keeps

them working and in physical shape for firefighting, he notes. “We’ve got suppression projects ongoing on right now in the Imperial Ranchettes, where the Initial Attack crews go up there and they’re taking out the hazard trees, and they pile them up and ‘hand’ burn them.” The point is to protect area residences and structures, regardless of which local boundaries they fall within. “This is tied in with the FireSmart program we’ve got going. “When you go through and do a FireSmart treatment on your private land – and lots of people do it – it gives a bit of a fire break, and that speaks volumes when you have a fire going through.” This includes taking down dead trees and clearing shrubs and trees away from homes, among other activities.

BC tech grows BC Stats recently released a progress report revealing the province’s high technology sector is continuing to grow. It shows new businesses emerging, increases in revenue, and workers in the sector are earning higher wages and salaries than ever before.

feral pig hunt Licensed hunters may now legally hunt feral pigs anywhere in the province, under a new regulatory amendment designating the animal as “Schedule C” wildlife. Feral pigs can be aggressive, and can cause significant damage to ecosystems by competing with local wildlife for forage, damaging crops, uprooting native vegetation and eating ground nesting bird eggs. They can also host infectious diseases and parasites harmful to wildlife, livestock and human health.

During Stage 1 job action, teachers will not supervise students outside of regularly scheduled classes, Helmer explains. The exception, he explains, would be under an essential services order, which would be when staff is unavailable for supervision. Teachers will not attend any meetings with management, except for worksite health and safety. They won't provide

or receive printed, written, or electronic communication to or from principals or administrators, the union president says. Teachers will also refrain from being at schools more than an hour before and after instructional times, other than for ongoing voluntary activities, such as team coaching.

MMBC opponents are preparing for court fight

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Business opponents of Multi Material BC (MMBC) are planning a court challenge to reverse the takeover of British Columbia’s curbside recycling system by the stewardship agency. They continue to urge the provincial government to freeze the new MMBC system before it takes effect May 19. At the same time, however, they are also laying the groundwork for a legal battle. Kelvin McCulloch, chief executive officer of the Buckerfields chain of farm supply stores, is urging other businesses to sign and submit their MMBC contracts. However, he is suggesting these businesses then give notice to the government that they will not be paying fees or otherwise co-operate with the new system to collect packaging and printed paper. McCulloch said he intends to gather opt-out letters from numerous businesses across B.C. and deliver them to the provincial government. If the MMBC rollout continues, he explained, the opponents will argue in court the

MMBC contracts were invalid and they were coerced to join the government-created recycling monopoly. “We’re fairly confident at this point it will be struck down,” McCulloch said. “No company in their right mind would sign that contract of their own free will.” The provincial government contends MMBC is a voluntary process. If the various industries don't want to participate, they could instead form their own separate waste-collecting organization. That option is neither practical nor reasonable, McCulloch responds. “The suggestion we are able to launch our own stewardship program independent of MMBC is a sham.” The MMBC program aims to transfer recycling costs from municipal taxpayers to the producers who generate packaging and printed paper, while collecting more containers and material types than before. However, many businesses argue they’re unfairly compelled to pay far higher fees than a similar system run in Ontario.

Critics say MMBC’s three-member interim board is controlled by executives with multinational firms, such as Unilever and Proctor and Gamble, which have manipulated the launch of the new program to their benefit rather than the interests of most B.C. businesses. Questioned by the NDP last week, Environment Minister Mary Polak said she expects a more representative 15-member permanent board to be named soon after MMBC’s launch. Polak said it’s logical the biggest industries that pay the most into MMBC get a large role. A new advisory council was also recently unveiled by MMBC with reps from several B.C. business groups, but critics say it has no real power. Pausing the program and the payment of fees by member businesses would cut off the money MMBC will send to most local cities that agreed to continue curbside pickup. “Any delay in implementation for those communities would mean a loss of that savings,” Polak said, adding many municipalities have already budgeted to receive promised

Container plant A new container recycling plant will be built in New Westminster to handle some of the packaging that will be collected under the new MMBC system. Green By Nature, a consortium picked by MMBC to process and market recyclables, said the $15-million facility will be completed in early 2015, providing more efficient sorting of plastics. MMBC managing director Allen Langdon said the state-of-theart recycling facility will position B.C. as an industry leader. It will bring 70 new jobs to New Westminster.

MMBC payments. She notes examples of those amounts are $1.5 million a year coming to Richmond and $917,000 to Nanaimo. Mike Klassen, B.C. director of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said he’s not aware of any cities reducing their property taxes as a result of the expected MMBC savings. “That’s one of the things that has been most misleading –  the idea that this was going to save money for the general taxpayer.” Klassen argues consumers will pay twice – their local taxes won’t go down but they’ll also pay higher retail prices as businesses pass along the MMBC charges. He said most mayors and councils are being cautious and aren’t spending MMBC savings until they actually arrive – meaning there’s still opportunity to freeze the rollout. “That suggests to me they’re also very wary of the program and have a fallback program in case things don’t work. “The world doesn’t all of a sudden turn upside

Liberal MLA and cabinet minister likely didn’t know he was walking into a fight. Within hours of his announcement, outrage at the Route 40 cancellation was voiced by Bella Coola tourism operators, spinoff businesses and communities along the circle tour connecting the Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island to Bella Coola and through the Chilcotin to Williams Lake on Highway 97. From there, some tourists would travel to the South Cariboo to enjoy amenities, including those that are available in the 100 Mile House area, including the Interlakes, Canim Lake and other recreational areas. While the cost savings of cancelling Route 40 was estimated at $1.45 million over three years, the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association stated Stone was showing “blatant disregard” for the B.C. Liberal’s previously signed Small Business Accord. A tourism economic review noted the cut would cost 110 region-

MV Nimpkish carries up to 16 vehicles and is slated to sail from Bella Bella to Bella Coola in about 9.5 hours, four times a week in summer.

On Feb 8, CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett said she was disappointed in the decision. She added “all we asked for was to prolong the Route 40 sailing for 2014” because a lot of businesses, accommodations and tourism operators had already heavily marketed the circle tour – both in North America and abroad. Barnett explained Stone had made up his mind and it “appears to be a done deal.” However, she noted the people along the Bella Coola to Williams

Legal process will take many months to process

If the court finds in favour of Taseko to any degree, Battison says it will have to go back to the government of Canada to decide what to do with the matter. The mining giant is providing “many examples” of that, such as closed-door meetings held with mine opponents after the environmental review process completed,

but before government made its decision, the company spokesperson notes. He says First Nations and other opponents met with Aglukkaq and other senior officials at “inappropriate times” and then failed to provide those discussion details to Taseko or provide the company a fair opportunity to respond to any allegations. The content of meetings federal cabinet

ministers held with British Columbia Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett should also have been revealed, since he was acting not on behalf of Taseko, but for the province’s best interests, the communication vice-president notes. Does this set a precedent for the rejection of other mining projects? Battison says he doesn’t know the answer to that question.

“It is about the process. Proponents entering the environmental review process need to have the confidence that they will be given a fair hearing, and that the process will be fair and conducted in a fair manner. “These are environmental assessments that assess large projects in Canada, so it has an implication – it casts a shadow, I suppose – over the fairness of

changes are concerned about the ability of the ship to handle rougher water. The plan is to have the Nimpkish drop passengers off at Bella Bella, where there are no facilities since the store burned down last year, and they will have to wait for an Inside Passage ferry from Prince Rupert to pick them up. It will result in a much longer trip for the tourists. Furthermore, the Nimpkish, which opponents call an “open air barge,” has no amenities and passengers will be forced to spend the nine-trip confined to their vehicles. They add

it’s not likely something their European guest will enjoy. Opponents said the Nimpkish won’t be able to handle the number of passengers the Chilliwack sailed with last year. They also point out the Chilliwack underwent a $16-billion refurbishing between 2010 and 2013 to extend its service to 2017, and by mothballing it four years early, BC Ferries is throwing away the investment, killing tourism and disrupting the lives and livelihoods of folks along the B.C. coast. However, BC Ferries has since decided to

upgrade the Nimpkish to provide food, water, washrooms, seating and shelter for passengers on the summer run from Bella Bella to Bella Coola in an effort to retain traffic on the Discovery Coast circle tour. Read the April 30 edition of the Free Press to learn how the changes will hurt tourism in the Bella Coola Valley through the Chilcotin and into the Cariboo. Read how the battle to save tourism in the Cariboo-Chilcotin rages on.

The Queen of Chilliwack provided a 12-hour direct sailing between Port Hardy and Bella Coola and carried more than 2,000 vehicles and 7,000 passengers during the summer of 2013. The main advantage the Chilliwack has over the Nimpkish is it can carry the recreational vehicles tourists prefer. It is equipped with a snack bar, lounge, showers and other amenities. In contrast, the MV Nimpkish is the smallest in BC Ferries fleet and cannot make the direct sailing from Bella Coola to Port Hardy. Opponents of the

Bitumen spill would be disastrous

T

his is the first of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to British Columbia’s environment in our lifetime. I am a reasonably sensible and conservative businessman, not an alarmist. All of the information in this column can be confirmed from public sources. The oil industry wants to export Alberta bitumen to Asia via tankers. Under no circumstances should we allow that to happen. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hundreds of years. Bitumen, even if it is diluted, does not float in sea water if there is sediment present. This has been proven many times, most recently in a thorough Environment Canada study published on Nov. 30, 2013.

Page 51 of the study a spill of bitumen at sea provides graphic evidence would be much worse. of sunken bitumen.

GUEST SHOT

ven while the British Columbia New Democrats are immersed in a love-in and a showof-solidarity for the soon-to-be new leader of the party, John Horgan, the B.C. Liberals cannot seem to make any headway. Horgan is going to lead the NDP into the next election, and the gloves will definitely be off. They seem to have learned from the last provincial election during which Adrian Dix squandered a double-digit lead in the polls and lead the New Democrats to the slaughterhouse. Horgan promised the left-wing faithful he would fight the B.C. Liberals every step of the way by providing positive alternatives to the government’s policies. He vowed the alternatives will be costed out, so British Columbians will know what they’re getting into, so they will be able to compare NDP policies to those of the B.C. Liberals. Meanwhile, Horgan is promising to expose the B.C. Liberals for being a tired, old government that is going through its mandate without any direction – other than pounding the political drum on the promise of the golden goose they call liquefied natural gas. However, there are a lot issues that need fixing now, but they seem to be taking a back seat to the race for LNG supremacy. Surprisingly, Premier Christy Clark and her cabinet are not showing much in the way of leadership right now. Lately, it seems that everything the B.C. Liberals touch blows up in their faces. They recently cancelled a direct sailing from Port Hardy to Bella Coola. The direct sailing of the Queen of Chilliwack was a key tourism link for a circle tour from the Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island to the Discover Coast and through the Chilcotin-Cariboo. Now, they’re in a fight for their political lives with the businesses and communities along the tour, as well as international tourism operators. Knowing they were going to get a bad review on earthquake preparedness, the B.C. Liberals recently hired a former cabinet minister to do a province-wide study on earthquakes. That only lasted one day before the deal was killed to stop the uproar in the legislature. Last week, Environment Minister Mary Polak had to apologize for not consulting First Nations on two recent orders in council that would eliminate the province’s mandatory environmental assessment or public consultation process for major natural gas processing facilities, and ski hills and all season resorts. Polak rescinded the amendments, which were passed without public consultation, much to the embarrassment of the premier and the rest of cabinet. Will they never learn?

tanker load. Some say that with GPSbased navigation and double hulls, spills such as Exxon Valdez are not possible today. They are wrong. Double hulls do not prevent hull fracture if there is a collision at speed, only if there is a gentle scrape. As for the GPS claim, most marine accidents are caused by human inattention, not by a lack of knowledge about position. All ships carried systems to indicate their location before GPS came along. The Exxon Valdez crew could have glanced at their instruments to determine their location, but they didn’t, and neither did the crew on the Queen of the North. Marine disasters regularly occur and a quick search of the Internet shows human error is most often the problem. Undoubtedly there will be many more marine accidents in future. Continued on A12

Reader: Bill C-23 shameful, dictatorial To the editor: In sports, no one would accept playing under new rules made by the team that had pled guilty to one infraction and was charged in court over a second one. Neither would it be accepted that the neutral referee was being replaced in judging wrongdoing by an agent of the cheating team. Bill C-23, named by those it benefits as The Fair Elections Act, proposes to alter the rules. Changes

proposed were arrived at without consultation by those affected – in particular the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) and opposition political parties, and in general, the Canadian voters. Without debate these fundamental changes have been accepted in principle at second reading. They will not be discussed and debated in public hearings, but rather in committee meetings “held primarily behind closed doors.”

The saying of Vince Lombardi that “Winning isn’t the only thing; it’s everything” has been the Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s guiding principle in past elections and it is manifest in the new rules being proposed. The Tories control the majority of MPs in the House of Commons, although they had less than 25 per cent of eligible voter support in the 2011 General Election. And passage is assured because they

Thanks offered to all who were deployed

To the editor: Canada’s flag was lowered in Kabul last month, drawing Canada’s military mission in Afghanistan to a close as our troops began their final journey home. All Canadians extend our appreciation and thanks to the brave women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces and the RMCP, as well as the public servants and civilians who served valiantly in Afghanistan. We also owe a great debt of gratitude to the families who supported their loved ones during deployments. All those who served have made enormous sacrifices during Canada’s largest military deployment since the Second World War. Canadian women and men carried out their duties with the utmost professionalism and distinction. We are immensely proud and grateful of their service to enhance

peace, stability, and hope in a troubled region of the world. Most importantly, we remember those individuals – both military and civilian – who made the ultimate sacrifice during the mission. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the 158 Canadian soldiers, civilian consultants, diplomat, and a journalist who lost their lives in the line of duty. We also remember those who were injured and will forever bear the scars, physical and invisible, of their service. While Canada’s mission may have ended, our responsibilities do not. As a country, we must take the best possible care of all those who have returned from Afghanistan. Joyce Murray, Liberal MP Defence critic

now have a majority in the Senate, which is no longer there to provide “sober second thought,” but rather to follow the direction of the man who appointed them. The CEO has acted upon existing rules, so the adage of Grantland Rice, "... not that you won or lost; but how you played the game,” has been in force. Such will not be the case in the already imminent 2015 federal election. The national media is requested to

consider, and unswervingly press for, that which alone will provide fairness into the next federal general election – the election of the next Parliament should be conducted under existing Elections Canada regulations rather than those changes being forced upon Canada through Bill C-23 by the increasingly dictatorial Harper government.

Tearing down the historic Lodge is not an option

Better options for new water treatment plant must be found To the editor: This open letter to District of 100 Mile House mayor and council. Having been away recently, I have only just found out about the recent idea of the District’s water project technical advisory committee’s recommendation to tear down the Lodge and put up a parking lot – oh, my mistake, a water treatment plant. At first, I thought this was an April Fool’s joke. But no, I guess it isn’t. It is actually a serious idea that has been put forward by this committee. My father, Lord Martin Cecil, built the Lodge in the early 1930’s

as a hotel. It represented the first significant change from what was a stopping house and a ranch to what would become a destination for travellers and residents – the town of 100 Mile House. There are only a handful of historic buildings still standing that represent the beginnings of 100 Mile House – the Lodge, 100 Mile Ranch barn and three log buildings behind the Lodge. I am shocked and appalled at this ludicrous idea. How could it even be considered to tear down one of our town’s only historic buildings to put up a concrete bunker water treatment plant? And on top of this, it would

be ridiculous to build a water treatment plant in a residential neighbourhood and amongst other public buildings – the Valley Room and Martin Exeter Hall – and other businesses. My father also gifted the town of 100 Mile House its water licence on Bridge Creek many years ago, which is the other source for 100 Mile’s water. I am sure there are more sensible options for a location for the District’s second clean drinking water treatment plant. Tearing down the historic Lodge is not one of them.

BC VIEWS

arth Day 2014 will likely go down in British Columbia history as less exciting than last year’s event. That was the day when, in the heat of the election campaign, NDP Leader Adrian Dix announced in Kamloops that he doesn’t support the expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline to its Burnaby terminal because Vancouver shouldn’t become a “major oil port.” As of this Earth Day, it has been an oil port for exactly a century, since Imperial Oil began work on B.C.’s first refinery in 1914, in what is now Port Moody. There were no pipelines then, so crude was moved by rail or tanker. For 60 years, Trans Mountain has supplied the Chevron refinery in Burnaby, which is southern B.C.’s last source of fuel. Some of the Alberta crude is piped south to be refined into fuels and some of that product is barged back up to B.C. to keep our traffic moving. Today, the proposal to expand and upgrade that pipeline, and to build new oil and natural gas pipelines across the north,

on fuels actually appears to be helping to reduce emissions. An update to provincial data is due this year, but what we have shows a 5.7 per cent decrease in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases between 2007 and 2011. Environment ministers have conceded that some of this is due to the recession that struck in 2008/09. But since the economy has recovered and begun to grow again, emissions have continued to decline. • There are simple things anyone can do, without gimmicks or government programs. One would be to stop protesting increased housing density in your community. By far the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in B.C., not to mention oldfashioned pollution, is transportation. By living closer to where we work, shop and play, we can exercise our legs instead of just our gas-pedal foot to get around. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

the province Charges laid in family murder, assault of toddler VANCOUVER - 33-year-old Ka Chi David Siu has been charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder in relation to a death April 14 in Vancouver. Vancouver Police arrived at the 3300 block on Kingsway at 10:30 a.m., after receiving a 9-1-1 call. Siu was holding a knife and was shot by police. Inside the apartment, officers found a little girl (less than two years old) with multiple injuries, and a dead woman. The woman has now been identified as 63-yearold Yin Nor Hsao, Siu's mother, and the girl is his niece. The child was taken to BC Children's Hospital with injuries. Siu was also taken to hospital, where he remains under guard and is being treated for his gunshot injuries. Bystanders rescue driver submerged in creek CASTLEGAR - The quick thinking and action of some residents likely saved a man’s life. At about 10:30 p.m. on April 13, Castlegar RCMP and local fire departments responded to a single vehicle accident at Pass Creek Road. The vehicle went off the road, rolled down a hill and came to rest upside down in the creek. Local residents were on the scene quickly and immediately went to assist the lone occupant. They found him trapped and helped him hold his head above the water and offer comfort until he could be rescued. Police thanked the bystanders who went without hesitation into the very frigid creek to assist the victim, likely saving his life. Police officers and firefighters also entered the water, cut the male’s seatbelt and used the jaws of life to cut the man out of the truck. The driver, a 46-year-old Castlegar man, was taken to Trail hospital with serious injuries and remains in the intensive care unit. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening, however, alcohol is suspected to be a factor in this accident.

On April 15, the 100 Mile House RCMP responded to a call of a potential weapons complaint at a building across the street from 100 Mile House Junior Secondary - in the South Cariboo Business Centre on Birch Avenue in 100 Mile House. Officers were able

to determine this complaint was unfounded and posed no threat to anyone at the school. However, information revealed it may have stemmed from a disagreement between students from Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO).

The students involved have been identified and police are investigating. Due to additional concerns raised by students, officers attended again on April 16. It has been determined the concerns were in relation to the previous day’s events and not a

new threat. “As a result of a conversation between students, a number of individuals expressed concern that resulted in our officers attending the school. We would like to assure parents and students there is no threat or danger at Peter Skene

Ogden Secondary,” says Staff Sergeant Blake Ward, 100 Mile House Detachment Commander. “In this case, the people who had concerns did the right thing and called the police. We always want to err on the side of caution to ensure everyone is safe.”

Equipment failure causes power outage

More than 1,000 residents north and east of 100 Mile House were without power in the morning of April 17. 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue members responded to a fire on a power line at Highway 97 and Keene Road at close to 5:30 a.m. They were on scene for about 90 minutes until BC Hydro personnel arrived. A total of 1,083 BC Hydro customers were affected by the outage. The power loss was sparked by an equipment failure.

Power was restored at 10:32 a.m. West Fraser fire contained 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue responded to a call at just before 3 a.m. on April 16 for a fire at the West Fraser Mills’ 100 Mile Lumber on Exeter Road. Fire chief Darrell Blades says 15 members were on scene tending to “hot spots” in the sawmill building. “Contractors were doing some hot work in that area in relation to the upgrade that’s happening at the mill right now. A

small fire started. It appears to be from the hot work. “The sprinklers held the fire to its original location. The mill was evacuated.” New members The local fire department recently welcomed four new applicants to its crew, including one junior firefighter. The additions bring the total of paid oncall members to 20. The fire chief says the ideal number of personnel would be 27.

Everyone has role in preventing child abuse need know where, and how, to get help. The public also has a legal responsibility to report suspected child abuse or neglect. So, what should you do if you think a child is being abused or neglected? B.C. residents can call the 24-hour Helpline for Children toll-free at 310-1234 – no area code is required. The helpline is also a great resource for children in crisis who don’t know where to turn. Anyone can call – children or teenagers who need help, parents in crisis who are afraid they might hurt their children, or someone who knows or suspects a child is being abused or neglected – and you can call anonymously if

you prefer. A 16-page handbook – Responding to Child Welfare Concerns: Your Role in Knowing When and What to Report – has been produced to help the public learn the warning signs and what to do when a child may be at risk.

It is important that all British Columbians recognize that everyone has a responsibility to keep children safe and healthy. Child abuse is one of the most serious problems facing society. Each year, the Ministry of Children and Family Development receives around 30,000 calls from concerned citizens. These calls are always about a child or youth who might be in need of protection from ongoing abusive situations in their lives. It’s important that everyone – caregivers, teachers, service providers and community members – recognize the signs that a child might be at risk of harm. Furthermore, we

Stop bitumen tankers From A8

Our grandchildren will not thank us if we willingly risk the destruction of the British Columbia coast on our watch. Fortunately, there is a solution that is beneficial for all concerned. All we have to do is build a refinery at Kitimat. The refinery will convert the bitumen to gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, which float and evaporate if they are spilled. Often little or no spill remediation is required. These refined fuels simply do not cause the habitat destruction of conventional or

synthetic crude oil, or anywhere near the devastation caused by bitumen. The second part of this editorial edition will run in the next issue of the 100 Mile House Free Press. It will discuss the enormous valueadded benefits and environmental advantages of a modern green refinery. The pipeline from Alberta and the tanker fleet to export the refined fuels will also be considered. Let me declare my biases. I am for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in B.C. I am for creating billions of new tax dollars for government

coffers. I am for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. I am for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a modern tanker fleet that carries only refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. I am against shipping bitumen in tankers. If you agree that we should not put bitumen in tankers, please contact your local MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on this next month.

School District #27 board chair Tanya Guenther says she encourages all local PACs to apply online for the gaming grants. “PACs receive $20 per student and these funds can be used to enhance students’ extra-cur-

ricular activities, such as yearbooks, school societies and clubs, transportation of students to special events or field trips, and playground equipment.” 100 Mile House Elementary School PAC president Elke Baechmann and treasurer Denise Balbirnie say their group applies for gaming grants every year. Baechmann notes there are a variety of things funded with

Cow, calf survive icy plunge in lake

It looked very grim. From the Canim Lake Resort, proprietor Rudy Gauss watched for some time as a cow and calf struggled to reach land after falling through the ice some 50 yards from shore. Eventually, the moose made it out of the icy water and survived. But, “it didn’t look like they would in the beginning,” Gauss says of the April 8 ordeal. “The eagles were already soaring over them.” Gauss says he called the conservation officer to see if something could be done to help the pair of animals. The resort owners says he hasn’t seen this kind of thing on that lake before, but recalls a story he read in the 100 Mile House Free Press from March 26. Both a cow and calf moose died when they sunk through pond ice near Little Green Lake Road on March 6. (MJHPTZY\JJPQ^Ć^JWX

these grants, but there are stipulations that all students must benefit. Their PAC has applied recent years’ funding to purchase wrestling mats, T-shirts for teams, science fair and geography awards, and gym equipment, such as skipping ropes and balls, she explains. “Generally, we also give $250 to every classroom for their year-end field trip.” Balbirnie says the largest, intermediate

playground equipment at their school will be removed this summer, as some PAC money and fundraising dollars have long been earmarked for purchasing a replacement. “We have been saving for the past three years toward replacing the playground because we have known for about four years that that toy was limited, and was eventually going to go. It was kind of stretched out because we didn’t

have the funds to replace it with, but this year it is going.” The PAC has already chosen the new equipment, she adds. “We are hoping to have one more push in fundraising for our new playground at the Spring Carnival on May 23. “We are doing it a little bit differently this year; it will be during the day for our school, and then open from 4 to 6 p.m. for the public.”

Baechmann and Balbirnie encourage other parents to dedicate at least a small amount of time to volunteer with the PAC, as just three current members are doing everything, and all of them hold down regular jobs. While some parents frequently make suggestions about what the PAC should do – with good intentions – Balbirnie says they don’t seem to under-

stand the volunteers are already “maxed out.” “When parents say ‘you guys should do this’ or ‘they should do that’, I think they don’t realize they are a part of the “they” and the “you guys.” I can think of a lot more fun things to do in my evenings than go to a PAC meeting, but it is very important.” She adds statistics show the children of parents who are involved are often more successful in school.

Confessions of a Curber Feel the rush riding on two wheels ‘‘

I absolutely, 100 percent without a doubt recommend going to a good professional school to learn how to ride.’’ Alexandra Straub

’’

If you have ever looked longingly upon a motorcycle as it whizzed by, you might have been bitten by the bike bug and didn’t even know it. If you have always dreamed of getting on two wheels but didn’t know how to go about it, you have been bitten by the bike bug. If you are contemplating a perfect time to do it, the answer is now! With springlike weather manifesting itself and more and more motorcycles appearing on the roads, it’s time to stop dreaming and start doing. But where do you start? How do you go about it and what steps do you need to go through? Over the next few weeks,

we will feature a four-part series on motorcycling. It will cover everything from schools, to gear to buying a bike and more. As I said, there’s no better time than now to embrace your inner motorcyclist and have the time of your life. Take the test In order to get your learner’s license in BC, you will need to take the ICBC Motorcycle Knowledge Test. To attain the handbook that you’ll need to familiarize yourself with, you can either download it from the ICBC website, or visit a branch in person to pick up a hard copy. After you have studied it from cover-to-cover, you’ll need to take and pass the test at an ICBC branch, which will then give you your L. Visit www.icbc.com and type in “motorcycle” into the search bar. That is the easiest way to get you to the pages you’ll need to work with. After getting your “L”permit There are two steps in acquiring your full motorcycle license. First, you’ll have to pass the Motorcycle Skills Test portion of the process. Then you’ll have your full road test. Riding training I absolutely, 100 per cent without a doubt recom-

mend going to a professional school to learn how to ride. I’m not saying your bff who has selflessly volunteered to teach you everything you need to know about riding isn’t qualified or unfit for the task, but they might not be a “teacher.” Sure they have the skills, but can they communicate effectively the points that you need to be safe? If yes, then go for it. But professional schools have professional teachers. They also know the ICBC system and will teach you above and beyond what you’ll need to execute in order to start riding on your own. And more importantly, to be safe! They will also help build your confidence and try to help you eradicate bad habits that you may or may not know you are forming. Granted, most courses aren’t cheap. But they’re worth it and so is your safety. Check out regional schools or save up to come to the Lower Mainland. I wouldn’t have done my license any other way. Some schools to check out are: Pacific Riding School, V-Twin Motorcycle School, the Justice Institute of BC, High Gear Motorcycle Training and more.

You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road. When and if you want to transition to the street riding, you’ll need it for that. Check out Popkum Motor Park’s Lessons/Training (www.popkummotorpark. com) program for all ages, as well as the BC Off Road Motorcycle Association’s website (www.bcorma.ca) for upcoming MSF Dirt Bike Schools. Another perk to starting to build your bike confidence on the dirt, training programs aren’t as expensive. So, this is me, the little white angel on your shoulder whispering, “Go on, get on two wheels!” But remember, safety is paramount. Take the test, go to school and thank me later. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasn’t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

“The buyer smelled a bargain. He thought I was the fool!”

People that talk and text on their hand-held smartphones while driving are not nearly as smart as their technology of choice. There you go; I have made my position clear on the current red-hot driving topic of the day in the letters pages of every newspaper and on radio talk shows coast to coast. However, that does not mean I am offering my unqualified support for the countrywide torrent of get-eventougher legislation, designed to pick the pockets of delinquent drivers. Currently in BC, the fine is $167 and last year police here issued 51,000 tickets for distracted driving. Victoria knows a vote winner when it sees one and it is pondering a big fine hikes and additional demerit points. The local action comes on the heels of Ontario introducing legislation last month that increases fines from the already high $300 to $1,000. Fanning the public outrage, BC Attorney General Suzanne Anton announced that distracted driving is killing more British Columbians than impaired driving. Forgive my cynicism, but I really question the sudden rush of statistics on how

Bigger fines for distracted drivers heinous and deadly a crime this is. I have always advocated for handsfree calling while driving and figured “driving without due care and attention” was a sufficiently good catch-all charge for those causing a collision during handson operation of a cell phone. The fine is $368. When I began writing on this topic about five years or so ago, there were no such statistics available. It was all anecdotal because, let’s face it, it’s an offence very visible to other drivers. It’s always seemed to me that drivers who talk and text are reckless risk-takers, who run

red lights, follow too closely and make dangerous lane changes even without a phone in their hand. My point being that when they crash while performing one of the preceding illicit manoeuvres with phone in hand it’s a little too convenient to blame it all on operation of the device. Much of the current public debate was spurred by the revelation that a serial offender in Vancouver racked up 26 tickets and fines of $4,300 for distracted driving since 2010. He may be the pinup boy for those seeking tougher penalties but interestingly, it appears he never once caused an

accident during the time he was caught in cellular action! Now the law is in force, I’ve no problem in accepting it but let’s not kid ourselves into thinking this will stop idiots such as this overly chatty man continuing to take risks on the road that threaten us all. The fines are already high enough to deter regular drivers who are tempted to err occasionally. That said; I do worry about how zealously this law is enforced. I frequently hear of tickets issued to drivers who glance at their device while at a red light or move it to a new resting place around the dash.

I fear the debate about the fines is a distraction in itself from getting to the heart of dangerous driving. Therefore, I am pleased to hear Anton is also considering public education campaigns on distracted driving, similar to previous initiatives targeting seatbelt use and drinking and driving. Research shows that many distractions contribute to road carnage. Be careful what you wish for because there are other technological distractions in our vehicles that could invite bans of which you may not enthusiastically support. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

Big Country Shrine Club Would Like To Say

THANK YOU

To Everyone For Making Our King Crab & Prime Rib Buffet & Auction Such A Success!

Ken Alexander Free Press

MEDIA SPONSORS: 100 Mile House Free Press Vista Radio

The Big Country Shrine Club hosted a buffet/dinner and auction fundraiser at the 100 Mile Community Hall on April 12 and it was a huge success – not only in terms of being a great community event, but it was also financially successful. Some 190 people got their fill of crab, prime rib and all of the fixings cooked by the Red Rock Grill. Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School’s leadership group members did a fine job of serving at the buffet line and clearing tables. The local Shrine club raised more than $15,000 through the tickets sales, the 50/50 and bucket draws, and the silent and live aucKen Alexander photo tions.

ince 1952, the last full week of April has been designated Administrative Professionals Week (formerly called Secretaries Week) by the International Association of Administrative Professionals, with April 24 being the official Administrative Professionals Day. Traditionally, bosses use this time to show their appreciation to their assistants for all of their hard work throughout the year. To help bosses along (apart from giving the usual flowers and candy), we contacted several administrative assistants who were more than willing to give us some suggestion for bosses to show their appreciation during Administrative

Professionals Week. Each business relationship is different so you may want to talk to your assistant first, but here are some of the ideas that these administrative professionals came up with: • Give a nice gift basket; • Take her/him out for a nice, long lunch at a local fine restaurant; • Provide a morning at a local spa; • Give a gift certificate for a dinner for two or an evening at a hotel or resort; • Arrange for the afternoon off to go shopping and throw in a little spending money; • Provide a long distance calling card; • Arrange for a housekeeper for the day;

• Book and pay to have the car tuned up and spring cleaned; • Present a plaque for her/ his years of valued work; • Provide a family pass to the movies and plenty of popcorn money; • Arrange to have her/his carpets cleaned or yard prepared for the coming season; • Arrange for groceries to be paid for and delivered; • Find out who is her/his favourite author and buy their latest book; • Offer a three hour lunch or, better yet, the day off; and • Outsource some of his/her work to an off-site administrative professional, such as a virtual assistant. Don’t forget that

Administrative Professionals Day or Week isn’t the only time of year you should show your appreciation to the administrative professionals in your life. Ensure you make them feel valued throughout the year. You’d be amazed at how far a “thank you” or kind word can go. Now, if you are an entrepreneur without an assistant, don’t let this day go by without patting yourself on the back for handling all of the administrative tasks. Why not outsource some of your work to a Virtual Assistant and give yourself back some personal or revenue generating time. Courtesy of About.com Small Business: Canada.

We sincerely appreciate all of you! We, at Sunrise Ford, know that any successful company is only as good as its people. Because of you, we thank you for our success.

Put someone in charge of all your business “I know it’s here somewhere.” Sound familiar? If so, chaos has crept into your small business – and is probably busy spreading throughout your organization like a virus. What to do? Control chaos by applying these basic office management principles: • Establish office management routines and stick to them. Set up routines for handling paperwork and office systems. For instance, every piece of paper that comes into your office should be handled once, acted upon, and filed – not haphazardly piled on a desk. Office systems, such

These data management articles provide helpful tips for everything from office filing systems through computer backup procedures. • Set up clearly delineated responsibilities. Good office management depends on people knowing who

is responsible for what – it’s people who are accountable who get things done. What would happen, for example, if the purchasing for your small business was done by whoever whenever?

From A19

“Glen was the ramrod for the dinner and did the lion’s share of the donations, corporate sponsorship and that sort of stuff.” Noting it took a bit of time to nail down a date, Clancy said once that was done, it took about four months to pull the fundraiser together, with most of the work being done in the month prior the event. He was extremely happy with the way everything went. “One of the guys said, ‘if we did such and such’, we would hit a home run. "After the event, he said, ‘it looks like we got a grand slam’. It went so good.” There was more than $20,000 worth of donations for the auction, Dobbs said. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett was the auctioneer for the evening and she kept the bidding moving along quickly. The former 100 Mile House mayor did a remarkable job of getting top dollar for each of the items.

The pace was set early when she bumped the price of six homemade pies (one a month for six months) up to $300. Dobbs said his wife, Vivian, bought the pies that were made by Louise Bergen, and told him, “nobody else was going to get those pies.” Noting there may be a bit of tweaking and massaging, Dobbs said the Big Country Shrine Club will hold another dinner/auction next year because of the great comments they heard this year. “The positive comments were about the atmosphere being warm, friendly and happy, and the food was awesome,” said Bergen. “People liked the diversity of our auction items, as there was something for folks who make $200,000 a year and something for folks who make $20,000 a year. So people were happy and were able to have a good time, and that’s the way we wanted it to be.” Bruce Barker, who is the Potentate for all Shriners in British Columbia and the Yukon, travelled from Penticton to be the

guest speaker at the dinner. He talked about the Shriners five Care Cruisers, which serve more than 100 towns and cities throughout B.C. – including the Interior, Okanagan, Kootenays and Vancouver Island. All of the buses are wheelchair lift-equipped, and some are capable of accommodating stretchers. One of the buses was parked outside of the 100 Mile Community and folks got to tour the bus that had all of the amenities for a comfortable ride for the patients. Barker noted any B.C. children who are receiving treatment at any Shriners Hospitals for Children, BC Children’s Hospital, BC Women’s Hospital and Sunny Hill Hospital are eligible to travel for free. Their parents and/or caregivers also travel without cost. Dobbs said the Shriners are currently looking after 600 patients in the B.C., including 35 children in the South Cariboo.

FAST bytes BOSTON MARATHON Over 200 runners from British Columbia took part in the 2014 Boston Marathon amid a large security presence on April 21. Last year, a pair of homemade pressurecooker bombs set off near the finish line killed three people and injured more than 260 at the world's oldest annual marathon. According to its host, the Boston Athletics Association, close to 36,000 runners competed this year and a million spectators lined the course.

Players impress on European trip B.C. soccer talent goes undefeated on six-country tour Gaven Crites Free Press

It was a whole new thing for them, but the team came together like it had been there before, and two local soccer players have some pretty cool memories to look back on. Reid Davidson and Masen Fernandes, 15-year-olds from 100 Mile House, were part of a British Columbia contingent that recently went on a tour with the European Football School, based in North Vancouver, which saw 30 players from the province visit six countries – Germany, Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy and Switzerland – and play exhibition games as part of different teams made up of players 14- to 16-years-old. Heading into it, the boys figured the Europeans would be stiff competition. They came back undefeated, with four wins and one tie. After the games, the Canadians would talk with their opponents, Davidson says. “They were all surprised with how good we were. I guess we

proved Canada can play soccer as well as them.” Fernandes says the team “gelled” after its first game and coach Saibo Talic prepared them well for the experience. “We played well together, and we played a good, fast passing game.” “We both played pretty good minutes,” Fernandes adds of himself and Davidson. The group also did some sightseeing and took in professional soccer games as part of the trip. When asked what they'll remember most, both Davidson and Fernandes answer along the lines of “getting to know the guys” and “the team.” The pair returned on April 2. Since then they've already taken the field again playing for a team in Kamloops. Davidson says he learned a lot from the trip. Fernandes says his favourite stop was Salzburg, Austria. “It was warm outside. It had that old European feeling. The Masen Fernandes, left, and Reid Davidson recently returned from a six-country tour mountains around it were really of Europe as members of a B.C. soccer team. nice. And the field was good.”

A Kootenay International Junior Hockey League team is western Canada's best Junior B hockey club. The Beaver Valley Nitehawks hoisted the 2014 Keystone Cup on April 20. The tournament, also known as the Western Canadian Junior B Hockey Championships, was hosted by the Abbotsford Pilots and saw top teams from Saskatchewan, Alberta, Northern Ontario and Manitoba. Beaver Valley defeated the Kamloops Storm, a 100 Mile House Wranglers division rival, to capture the KIJHL title earlier this month.

WRANGLERS AGM Another season of Junior B hockey is fast approaching. The 100 Mile House Wranglers hockey club have an annual general meeting (AGM) slated for April 23 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre. The Wranglers AGM is open to the public and is set for 6 p.m. The club's 2014/15 Spring Prospects Camp is set for April 25-27.

Gymnasts rise to the challenge

Local gymnasts Jill McArthur and Sarah Robinson did free and rope routines in Vancouver for the Olympia Cup competition hosted by Olympia Rhythmic Gymnastics on March 2. “It was a very challenging competition and both gymnasts have done very well,” says South Cariboo Rhythmic Gymnastics coach SangHee Robinson. “It was a first time competing with ropes for both gymnasts. Free routine is composed with dance steps and

the gymnasts have to make the whole routine very smooth. “When you have an apparatus, such as a rope, everything gets harder. You have to constantly move your body and your apparatus.” McArthur finished fourth in free, fifth in rope, and fourth overall. Robinson finished fifth in free, sixth in rope, and sixth overall. Next up, Robinson and Candice-Rose Mapson are training to participate in a competition in Maple Ridge on May 4.

Bowlarama strikes fun

Gaven Crites

Athletes in red shirts shared in a huge meal to celebrate the end of a season, and then they had a ball. 100 Mile House Special Olympics bowlers tried something a little different at The Bowling Alley in 100 Mile House on April 15, when the group held its annual Bowlarama. They've been bowling since October. So they decided to mix it up a bit for the final round. For each frame there was a different challenge. B owlers went “through their legs, backwards, upside down and sideways,” explains Denise Barker, the co-ordinator of 100 Mile House Special Olympics. Frame 8 saw bowlers “bowl in slow motion.” In frame 2, bowlers rolled with their eyes closed. Frame 10 – maybe the trickiest of them all – had bowlers spin in a circle five times and then roll. “We're just here to have fun,” Barker says. “Some of these guys were laughing so hard. As long as they're having fun – that's our main goal.” Members of area fire departments were invited to join in the festivities. Close to two dozen participants – more than half of them local athletes – were in the building for the event, which started with a potluck dinner. Up next, the local Special Olympics group is rolling into Kamloops on May 10 for more fun games of bowling. Special Olympics BC has a total of 18 sports to choose from. A number of local athletes golf at the Marmot Ridge Golf Course in 100 Mile House throughout the summer. The group recently did some fundraising,

FISHING FOR PHOTOS

which stays local and supports local athletes, and pays for the activities, as well as team shirts and jackets, explains Barker. Brett Tassel of 100 Mile House qualified last summer to represent British Columbia in golf at the 2014 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games in Vancouver in July.

Join Cancer Society's efforts during Daffodil Month

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) urges British Columbians to join its team during April – Daffodil Month – a crucial fundraising time for the organization. “Every three minutes a Canadian hears the words you have cancer,” says Randene Wejr, CCS Southern Interior Region director. Current statistics show the number of new cancer cases continues to rise steadily as the Canadian popula-

tion grows and ages. Almost half of all Canadians are expected to develop cancer in their lifetimes and currently it is the leading cause of death in this country. Last year, in British Columbia during 2013, approximately 23,700 new cases of cancer were reported. While these statistics are sobering, the CSS has contributed to making progress against cancer. Today, more than 60

per cent of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis. In the 1940s, survival was about 25 per cent. “We’re at a point where we can see the difference our efforts are making,” says Wejr. “By volunteering for the society, you’ll be helping to build a future where Canadians will no longer fear the word cancer – but we need your help to make it a reality.” Volunteers like 100 Mile House’s Heidi Meier help the CCS achieve its vision of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer – and just a few hours can make a huge difference. The society needs

support from people who will buy and wear the daffodil pins to show support for those fighting cancer. “The daffodil pin is a bright and hopeful emblem that says we’re all in this together and we won’t give up until all forms of the disease are defeated.” If you’re interested in volunteering for the Canadian Cancer Society, call Tessa at

Brainy pupils discover top results Leanne Varney qualifies for national science fair with 'Udrink' project Gaven Crites Free Press

A score of local students won awards for their exhibits at the Cariboo Mainline Regional Science Fair in Kamloops on April 3-4. Receiving a number of top honours was Leanne Varney. The Grade 10 Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) student not only won gold in her category, she also took home best Environmental Science Award, Best Intermediate Award and an award from the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology. Out of 187 projects, Varney was one of five students chosen to attend the CanadaWide Science Fair in Windsor, Ontario next month.

Her project – “The Udrink Project” – is a rainwater filtration system that works in the developed world. Asked where she got the idea, Varney says she has a homeless relative living in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside who doesn't always have a clean source of drinking water. “I figured if I always do, why can't I make it more available to the public? “The whole world has a water crisis. It's not just the developing world.” Varney, who's also interested in forensics, says her father, a mechanic, helps foster her interest in science. They have discussions about different theories on long car rides, she explains. “It's kind of our thing we share.” Grade 9 PSO student Katya Levermann earned bronze for her protect on crystalliza-

tion called “Crystal Clusters.” Levermann says she met a lot of interesting people at the regional science fair, and she was part of a group of students that visited a water treatment plant. “It definitely opened my ideas about science a bit wider.” Science teacher Tracy Moore noted the creativity, hard work and long hours that go into the projects. “They're at the level now where they can choose some really sophisticated topics. I'm just here to fill out paperwork for them and provide a place to work if they need it. They do it all on their own.” "They're all keen science students,” she adds, while also mentioning PSO students Adele Halper and Anna Betuzzi, who brought a project to the local district fair.

“They have this interest and they're pursuing it. These are skills that are going to make these guys very successful when they leave school.” 100 Mile Elementary School students Darlyssa Chretien, Avery Collinson, Nina Geerts and Marshall Heit won merit awards. Bronze winners included Micah Bell and Hayden Sass from 100 Mile Elementary, and Dylan Kelsey of Forest Grove Elementary School. Supreeta Ranchod, Caitlyn McLean and Adam Sullivan of 100 Mile Elementary, and Cory Mapson, a School District 27 Distance Education student, won silver medals. Emily Menzel and Camille Barton of 100 Mile Elementary, and Olivia Gulliman and Alyssa Procee of Horse Lake Elementary School won gold medals.

Jack Glatzer playing in 100 Mile House

By Dennis F. Tupman Jack Glatzer, wizard of the violin, will be giving a concert in 100 Mile House, in the Evangelical Free Church (across from the movie theatre) on May 3, starting at 7 p.m. Playing on the same concert will be some outstanding local performers who were thrilled to be asked to perform alongside this master musician. In the time I have known Jack, he has travelled all over the world performing in most of the esteemed concert halls. He likes to visit outof-the way places and is able to form deep attachments to all the folks he meets, including myself.

Glatzer played with such ease.... It was a phenomenal performance. – Washington Post

When I found out he was coming to visit me, I asked him if he would be willing to make another “gift” of his music to 100 Mile House along with some fine local musicians. He agreed, and on May 3 in the Evangelical Free Church at 7 p.m., he will perform along

Jack Glatzer

with contributions from some of our local musicians. This promises to be an excellent concert of varied classical music to satisfy the soul. Jack specializes in music for the unaccompanied violin, which is so difficult that only a few violinists in the world can play this music, especially those pieces by J.S. Bach and Nicolai Paganini. Jack has earned international recognition for his superb playing. Here are two testimonials: “Glatzer played with such ease.... It was a phenomenal performance.” Washington Post “Glatzer is a worldclass violinist with such a wealth of instrumental beauty at his disposal....”

Oxford Mail. For the local concert, Jack will join some fine local musicians. Pat Friesen, local pianist and accompanist, loved the challenge a few years ago playing with Jack, so she jumped at the chance to join with him again in this concert in a full Mozart Concerto. Brian Beattie, local trumpeter, has impressed us with his flawless renditions of Reveille on Remembrance Day. Now, we will hear him in two entertaining concert solos. Alex Zamorano, a guitarist who hailed originally from Chile, and has delighted the community with his sensitive and compelling artistry. Anthony Lau, once a local musician who now lives in Kelowna, is returning to play a double concerto with Glatzer. Local singer Ingrid Mapson, who has also made a semi-professional career with symphony orchestras around British Columbia, will also sing two contrasting selections. Local music teacher and fine pianist Jasmine Kreschuk will offer a movement from a piano sonata and show she has achieved a high level of

Cariboo Idol is back

Auditions upcoming for Cariboo-Chilcotin artists at SCRC Gaven Crites Free Press

Cariboo Idol has featured some awesome artists over the years, and organizers are hoping to hear more when auditions start next month at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre in 100 Mile House. The vocal talent contest is open to singers of all ages from the Cariboo-Chilcotin. It was missed last year, so organizer Rob Fry says he's expecting a good turnout. As in the past, the top 10 contestants are featured at a number of future community events. “When I ask [contestants] why they want to be a Cariboo Idol, it's because they want to get in front of people and sing,” explains Fry, who's also one of the judges. “There are a lot of good musicians, singers and song writers, but they don't get the opportunity to get out and perform. This gives them a lot of different venues to come along and perform in front of a crowd.”

Auditions go nightly from 5 to 9 p.m. May 1-4. Contestants are encouraged to attend the first audition on May 1, for which there's a $10 fee. Those 18 years old and younger require a parent or guardian to sign a release form. The Cariboo Idol kickoff show is slated for the Cariboo Women's Fair in 100 Mile House, May 9-10. “It's all about community pride and spirit,” Fry says. He adds Cariboo Idol is more of a “program” than a contest, but in the end, there are awards for the top 3 performers and a “people's choice” award winner. Past winners include John Robert Goodwin of Quesnel, and Lac la Hache singer-songwriter Candace Copley. Copley encourages young performers to sign up. “I had a lot of fun when I entered the Cariboo Idol,” she says. “It gave me a ton of exposure and

Celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday British Columbia Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon has launched a new program to promote music and community spirit across the province. “Sing Me A Song” is an opportunity for musical groups of all ages and genres to write and sing an original song in the lead up to Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations in 2017. Groups are encouraged to write a song about what Canada’s sesquicentennial means to them or their community. “Our country’s 150th birthday is a time to reflect on our values and our accomplishments as Canadians,” says Guichon. “This program is a chance to not only demonstrate community pride, but also to promote and profile some

of the exceptional student and amateur musicians found throughout the province.” Each entry will be reviewed by a panel of musicians from around the province and an award of $1,000 will be granted annually in each of three age categories. Whether it is a school or community choir or other amateur musical group, all submissions must have a minimum of 15 voices and musical accompaniment is welcome. Each song must be original content, no longer than five minutes in length, and be based on the Canada 150 themes. For younger age groups, adults may assist in the creation of the musical content.

The conditions weren’t as good as we would’ve liked, but none the less, it was well worth it. It really was an interesting day learning the basics playing a bongo drum, courtesy of Mr. Randell. We put on a performance in the afternoon for about 45minutes. Everyone took a lot away from this workshop. Next month, we plan on presenting a musi-

When malignant tumours arise in the brain, they cause brain cancer. Cancerous brain tumours are life threatening because they have a highly aggressive and invasive nature. Workplace exposure to ionizing radiation, formaldehyde, vinyl chloride and acryonitrile increases your risk of developing brain cancer.

ANYONE who says WINNING is not IMPORTANT has fought t NOT CANCER. h g fi APRIL IS CANCER AWARENESS MONTH DAFFODIL MONTH Cervical pre-cancers and early cancers usually show no symptoms or signs. A woman usually develops symptoms when the cancer has become invasive and attacks nearby tissue. Cervical cancer can usually be found by having regular pap tests. Women should have regular checkups including a pelvic exam and a pap test three years after becoming sexually active or at 21 years of age, which ever comes first.

Every year the Canadian Cancer Society organizes a daffodil fundraising campaign across the country. The aim of this activity is to fund cancer research and community support services.

A healthy diet, active lifestyle and nutritional support are essential to the maintenance of good health and prevention of chronic illness. Read labels, and know where all your food comes from.

While malignant melanoma may only account for a low percentage of skin cancer cases, it causes the most skin cancer-related deaths. The most important factor that appears to increase the risk of developing melanoma is your skin’s sensitivity to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Watch Lake resident Eden Adams discovered snow drifts that towered over her head at the edge of Green Lake on April 4. She took advantage of the arrival of warmer weather to explore one of the winter scenes

unique to the area before it melted away. The wall of snow was formed along the rocky shore of North Green Lake by the wind blowing in off of the lake. Bake/garage sale The Watch Lake North Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary’s annual bake and garage sale will be held at the Sonny Johnson Memorial Hall, 5771 Green Lake Road North, on May 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The firefighters will be selling breakfast

sandwiches from 11a.m. to 1 p.m., along with pop, water, and coffee throughout the day.

Mail box problem The people who use the mail boxes next to

the airport are asked to use the garbage containers to put their unwanted papers. Otherwise, the papers blow all over the place and make the area look unsightly. Scammers back The computer scanners are at it again. People in 108 Mile Ranch are receiving phone calls, and in some cases, they’re getting more than one call. The scammers are calling to check out your Windows program and others. Do not fall for this scam; it will turn out to be very costly, and they will try to get as much personal information about you as they can.
