From walkouts to lockouts Public education bargaining battle escalates, both side turn up heat

Carole Rooney Free Press

If teachers don’t sign on the dotted line by the end of this term, the British Columbia Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) will impose teacher lockouts at secondary schools June 25-26 – just as exams and graduation are underway. As the government’s bargaining agent, it will also lock out teachers from all public schools as of June 27. Meanwhile, BCPSEA is also banning teachers from helping students

New officer a major addition Retired navy, air force officer takes on local posting

Carole Rooney Free Press


hat do you get when you combine a veteran navy officer who served in the Persian Gulf, an air force officer who served in Afghanistan, a retired as a major, and a black belt in both judo and Hapkido? Fortunately for 100 Mile House, you get the local RCMP detachment’s new officer, Const. Dan Ko. He brings a young family with him to the post – his wife, Jenn, and their two boys, Benjamin, 5, and Alexander, 3. Having grown up in Prince George, Ko says he is “very familiar” with the South Cariboo from his travels over the years, and was pleased to join the local detachment. “There is a good diversity here, especially at the leadership level. The members are very competent with diverse backgrounds and are extremely knowledgable. “I like the example they set for the community, especially Sgt. [Don] McLean, who knows pretty much everyone in town.” After graduating high school in Prince George, Ko attended the University of Northern British Columbia where he completed undergrad-

uate studies in Natural Resource Management, specializing in wildlife. From there, Ko went straight into the Royal Canadian Navy, where he served for eight years as a navy diver and boarding party commander at Esquimalt. Under his trade name of maritime surface operations officer, he primarily sailed as a bridge officer in a 22,000-ton oil supply tanker for refuelling navy vessels, Ko explains. However, he also captained smaller ships in the 75-ton range. His first tour of duty saw him in the Persian Gulf in 2002, Ko notes. In 2006, he gave up sailing for flying and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he served for another seven years. “I drove boats for a few years, but I get really sea sick. So then I switched to the air force, and [found] I also get air sick.” His duties as administration officer started out at a fighter squadron in Cold Lake, Alberta that sent him once again into active service overseas when he went to Afghanistan in 2008. Ko notes he transferred to Winnipeg in 2010, where he performed Air Force tasks out of a division of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). NORAD is a bi-

national (Canada/United States) military organization that monitors and defends North American airspace. Ko served as flight commander at 1st Canadian Air Division/ Canadian NORAD Region Headquarters, where he then retired as a major in 2013. While a rest was certainly well deserved, retired Maj. Ko didn’t even stop to catch his breath before immediately enrolling in RCMP training. “I graduated from RCMP Depot in Regina in October 2013 and was posted to 100 Mile House.” Ko adds he is “very happy” to be back in familiar territory in central British Columbia. Noting he completed his RCMP field training in April, Ko explains that, in many capacities, the job is quite similar to his previous work. “In a lot of ways, it feels like just another posting with the federal government. There are a great number of similarities between the Navy, Air Force and RCMP.” The new constable says after many years working in big cities, such as Victoria and Winnipeg, it is “nice” to be at a small detachment, and in a “very welcoming” rural community where folks respond cheerfully to a hello on the street.

this point, it’s just very confusing....” Helmer adds he sent a letter to local trustees asking if they support the directive that will be docking teachers’ pay, and disciplining them if they don’t follow the lockout regulations by showing up to school an hour early or work with a child at lunch. Meanwhile, he has notified his CCTA members that this latest official, writ-

ten provincial directive from BCPSEA must be followed unless it is overruled, regardless of any conflicting comments by Fassbender, trustees, or anyone else. “This is putting us in a position we were definitely trying to avoid – impacting students. We took our job actions very carefully in trying to preserve extracurricular activities and the ability to help kids outside of school hours. That appears to have been struck out by the employer and by govern-

ment.” British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) president Jim Iker says extra-curricular activities, including clubs, drama, music, and sports will be cancelled and graduation ceremonies will be impacted. Helmer notes that at PeterSkene Ogden Secondary School, graduating students will see the parents – who already do the lion’s share for the grad events – step up further to fill any gaps.

“The parent group is totally prepared to take on anything that can’t be done within the school. Everything is happening at the [South Cariboo Rec. Centre] arena, so it’s not going to be impacted by a lockout.” Individual teachers have their choice to attend offduty, and some have their own children graduating, he adds. Fassbender and BCPSEA continue to point to the BCTF’s refusal to compro-

mise on wage demands of about 13.5 per cent over three years. Government has offered 6.5 per cent over six years, similar to settlements made with other public sector unions. Helmer explains with a wage freeze in effect for the past four years, teachers “have fallen far behind other provinces” on wages. “We are close to $20,000 less than they make in Alberta for the same qualifications.”

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) no longer accepts beef specified risk material (SRM) at any nonapproved landfills and transfer stations. Prior to recently receiving information from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), directors had mistakenly understood that beef cattle under 30 months of age were not considered SRM, and could be accepted without violating regulations. Any dead stock is considered SRM and must be disposed of at an approved facility. In the South Cariboo, the sole CFIA approved site is the South Cariboo landfill in 100 Mile House. CFIA requires all other CRD waste facilities to post a sign banning SRM.

UTILITY REVIEW Government has launched independent reviews of the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) and its public rate design. The province wants BCUC to resume its role setting BC Hydro rates to help keep them as low as possible, while the Crown corporation invests in an electricity system to meet a growing demand. The BCUC review task force has started consultations and will report back to government by Nov. 17.

Many folks he has talked to since then about this adult education offered locally had not previously heard of it, and have shown a keen interest, he adds. “No one knows about it. I think that is the main problem.” Cumiskey says Joyner and the “very encouraging” local instructors all help mature students, who often feel nervous about walking back into a classroom, to become “very positive” about their studies. Joyner says statistics show a “many-fold” return on these types of education investments in benefits to the local economy and community. “It is the savings to society in getting good jobs and paying taxes and costs to the healthcare system – it’s all tied.” No decision has yet been made as to the future location of the soon-to-be diminished local GROW Centre.

Medicinal marijuana bylaw brings beefs Interlakes group: industrial land OK, why not farm land?

Carole Rooney Free Press

Interlakes Economic Association (IEA) members are hoping for a change of heart on medicinal marijuana facility zoning. IEA president Dianne Lawson and other representative members attended a recent Cariboo Regional District (CRD) public hearing, where they spoke out in favour of allowing these operations in agricultural zones. At its May 16 regular board meeting, CRD directors gave third reading and adoption to allow medicinal marijuana production facilities – but only within its Heavy Industrial Zones.

Lawson says her the province are lookgroup wants to see fur- ing at creating Special ther amendments to the Exemption Zones for South Cariboo Zoning any medical mariBylaw to allow juana grow for producoperations withtion within the in Agriculture Agriculture Land Reserve, Land Reserve with increased (ALR), with setbacks of increased set50-90 metres. backs to appease T h e Dianne any neighbours.

the term “agricultural use” to exclude legal marijuana production. “The Agriculture Land Commission has defined medical marijuana as a farm use. And, through Health Canada, I think there is certainly enough regulation in place to protect neighbours.” Noting initially the IEA spoke out against confining to Heavy Industrial Zones, Lawson says at least this now offers an available option. “I’m very glad the CRD is finally looking at this. Because right now, if we have any investors looking at our community to do this, at least there is one zoning.” She adds CRD directors have also

Bridge Lake land swap resurfaces

Carole Rooney Free Press

The provincial government has taken one step closer to swapping Bridge Lake waterfront for Heritage Island, where it could then create a reserve. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) issued a release stating it is removing 11 hectares of Crown land on the south shore of the lake from a restrictive designation called a Use, Recreation and Enjoyment of the Public reserve (UREP). Noting this will prevent the 28-hectare Heritage Island from further development, MFLNRO states the change also allows the government to consider an outstanding local development application. Cariboo Heritage Land Development Ltd. (CHLD) originally proposed the land swap in October 2008, after an outcry by the Friends of Bridge Lake – a resident group against developing the island. CHLD principal Julian Kenney then offered to trade its privately-owned island in

Bridge Lake for a 90-acre package of Crown land that includes the UREP parcel. If approved, a development CHLD originally planned for the island could relocate to the new site on the south end of the lake. “We are pleased to hear the provincial government has provided this opportunity to protect Heritage Island for the future by having it publicly owned,” says Kenney. “We look forward to working with the community to achieve that objective.”

A swap would allow the province to designate the island as a public reserve, protecting the island’s environment, archeological sites and recreational value in perpetuity. While some area landowners also opposed this proposal, the MFLNRO states it worked with local residents, conservation groups and the Canim Lake Band to address concerns and develop the land-exchange plan. Before the province makes a final decision, however, the

developer must submit biological and archeological impact reports. Prior to any development proceeding on either the private or the Crown land parcel, the Cariboo Regional District would also have to rezone the land. Kenney says he is aware of all the conditions that must be met. After a time lapse of five-and-a-half years awaiting MFLNRO’s answer, he adds the CHLD will reactivate its files before commenting further on what the next steps might be.

directed staff to look at other potential zoning, so Lawson hopes this results in a quick catch-up with other communities. However, investors from the Lower Mainland are already looking elsewhere in the province, and may snap up easier opportunities where zoning is in place and local governments are ready to accept land applications, she explains. “Regrettably, they are looking at the TNRD right now. And why? Because we are not ready.”

No legislation planned for strike By Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Liberal government is not planning to legislate a settlement to the latest teacher strike, which is shutting down schools in each district for a day this week.

Public School Employers’ Association issued a letter to the BCTF on May 25 stating Iker’s statements are incorrect, and there are no school district restrictions on extracurricular or volunteer activities. “If teachers withdraw from participation in extracurricular or volunteer activities, they do so at the encouragement of the union and

Fassbender also rejected the union’s claim that teachers doing volunteer work are not covered for work-related injury. “Any teacher who is at any activity that is sanctioned by a school district is absolutely covered by WorkSafeBC. There is no question of that, and that misinformation should be corrected.”

District tax increase invisible

Carole Rooney Free Press

District of 100 Mile House taxpayers can expect to pay less taxes this year – despite a two per cent increase at the municipal level, says Mayor Mitch Campsall. “The mill rate is going up two per cent, but that actual tax we collect will be less. It is only because the BC Assessments

went down. On average, the district will collect a half a per cent less this year than it did last year, he explains. “And, our mill rate is the lowest in the Cariboo, too. We have worked really hard as a team, with staff and with council, on what we are doing.” Campsall notes a prime example of this is all the repairs

and upgrades currently being done on water main infrastructure at no added cost to taxpayers. “You look at all the extras that we’ve had to do because of the water lines breaking because our infrastructure is getting old. And, there will be no increase in taxation to cover it because we have worked very hard to make sure that happens.”

Electoral Boundaries Commission members appointed The members of the 2014 Electoral Boundaries Commission tasked with recommending provincial electoral boundaries before the next election have been appointed. The B.C. Liberal government has appointed Justice Thomas Melnick, a justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, who will chair the threeperson panel. The other two appointees are Beverley Busson, former commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and Dr. Keith Archer, British Columbia’s chief electoral officer. Members of the Electoral Boundaries Commission must include a judge or a retired judge of the Supreme Court or the Court of Appeal, B.C.’s current chief electoral officer, and a third member recommended by the Speaker of the House in consultation with the Premier and

Leader of the Official Opposition. Amendments to the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act have been passed by the legislative assembly that once brought into force, will require the commission to preserve the current number of electoral districts in three northern and rural regions of the province.

The amendments also will permit the commission to recommend up to 87 electoral districts province-wide. Currently, B.C. has 85 electoral districts. The commission will seek community input through a province-wide consultation before developing its recommendations. A preliminary report

must be submitted to the Speaker within a year of the commission’s appointment. A final report must be submitted within six months of the release of the preliminary report.

Get it done T

B.C. Liberals must keep election promise


he B.C. Liberal government has only days to change its mind and withdraw a bill that will dismantle the Agricultural Land Reserve. If it passes, Bill 24 will remove protections for 90 per cent of ALR land, opening it up for development and threatening our long-term food security. This week, the bill will reach its final stage of debate, and the government has one last chance to do the right thing and scrap it. With California in the midst of the worst drought in 500 years, protecting British Columbia farmland is more important than ever. Just over a year ago, before the election, Country Life in B.C. magazine asked the B.C. Liberals specifically if they would protect agricultural land from development. In response, the B.C. Liberals promised to “work more closely

he war of words is definitely on between the B.C. Liberal government and the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF), as the two sides supposedly try to hammer out a contract. However, it appears both are intent on winning a popularity contest with the taxpayers, as their spin doctors trot out their particular set of facts. On May 26, Education Minister Peter Fassbender made the following statement: “It is unfortunate that the BCTF leadership is shutting down schools with their rotating strikes – it is always students and parents who bear the greatest brunt when the BCTF orders teachers to walk out.” Meanwhile BCTF president Jim Iker made this statement on May 22: “We were careful to ensure that already scheduled extracurricular and volunteer activities continued. We wanted to minimize the impact on students. During the rotating strikes, teachers would continue all volunteer activities four out of five days a week.” Both sides are telling us it’s not their fault students are being negatively impacted while the battle of the blackboard escalates. It is particularly hard on the senior secondary students, as the interruptions come at a time when they are preparing to write final exams, which are vitally important for their post-secondary aspirations. So, why is it so hard for the government and the BCTF to come to an agreement. We believe it is the bloodied history they share. This heated battle between the B.C. Liberals and the BCTF has been ongoing since 2002 when the government passed legislation that ripped the class-size restrictions, special-needs provisions and specialized-teachers requirements out of the teachers’ agreement. The B.C. Liberals have lost two B.C. Supreme Court decisions over that move. The latest ruling came on Jan. 27 when Justice Susan Griffin decided the education ministry has to go back to 2002 levels. Stating it would be catastrophic for the province to comply with the ruling, Premier Christy Clark decided to appeal the ruling. This buys her time to continue to put downward pressure on the BCTF in an effort to impose a longterm agreement on the teachers. In reality, it comes down to money – specifically teacher wages. The government is offering a 6.5 per cent increase over six years, which would be in line with other public-sector unions. The BCTF wants 13.5 per cent because teachers have been in a wage freeze for the past four years and are close to $20,000 a year behind what Alberta teachers make for the same qualifications. Somehow they have to split the difference and end this unrest for the sake of our children and grandchildren. Get it done.

dismantle the ALR, but they kept their plan a secret until after the election, denying British Columbians the opportunity to vote on it. If this sounds familiar, it’s because this is not the first time the B.C. Liberals have misled voters for political gain. Before the 2009 election, they told British Columbians they had no intention of bringing in the HST. After the election, they brought it in almost immediately, causing economic turmoil as the tax was implemented and then rescinded. In the legislature this week, New Democrats will stand up for the future of this province and oppose Bill 24. We are calling on the B.C. Liberals to not pass this bill, and keep their promise to preserve B.C.’s agricultural land. Nicholas Simons is the agriculture critic for the New Democrat Official Opposition.

Federal Liberals more inclusive To the editor: “The under-30 crowd won’t vote; they just don’t care....” I heard those words the other day, and while I respect where the sentiment comes from, I can’t find any reason to accept it. For too many years the political world has dismissed the young adults in our nation. There are numerous very bright, well informed, and very interested young voters in our country, and the days of ignoring them must be

put behind us. Those I talk with who are under 30 years old will, and do, vote. I find that largely they fall into two different camps. Either they feel disenfranchised with the system because nobody has bothered to engage them, or they have involved themselves in spite of the disregard they have been treated with. Both groups care a great deal about our nation, and when their opinion is sought, the responses

given are bright and well argued. I have close family and friends north of 50 years old who also feel disenfranchised with our political system. They tell me about intentionally not voting or spoiling their ballot in protest. These problems are not exclusive of our youth; they are represented throughout the population. The solution to this problem is inclusiveness. The Liberal Party of Canada leadership vote last year was the most open and inclusive

Relay for Hope To the editor: Relay For Life is an event that is emotional, powerful, and a lifealtering experience. It is happening on June 7 at Centennial Park in 100 Mile House (from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and your help is needed to volunteer or to participate as a team. Here is why I Relay: I Relay for my grandma who fought (and won) the fight against breast cancer like a pro. I Relay for my cousin who was such an inspiration and she is missed; cancer took her so quickly. I Relay for all the women in my family who have lost a piece of themselves to cancer. I Relay for my grandfather,


my sister, my friend and my coworkers. But, most importantly, I Relay for my daughter. I want for her to grow up in a world where cancer isn’t feared – a world where the words “it’s cancer” means help, support, and absolute survival. Emily Dickenson wrote: “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul ‘and sings the tune without the words’ and never stops at all.” I Relay because I want to have Hope.

leadership vote in Canadian history. Our candidate in the 2015 general election will have won an open nomination race held right here in the Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo riding. If you attend one of our local functions, you’ll be surprised at the wide range of demographics represented. Our meetings are more open than ever before; we are doing more than simply talking about

plans for inclusiveness, we are acting on it. People care about our nation’s future, regardless of age. It’s refreshing to see that we are finally listening to and engaging the next generation who will be able to lead Canada into the years ahead. They are our nation’s future, and we are lucky to have them. Tyler Carpentier, president Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Liberal Electoral District Association

Canada’s worst maritime disaster should be a lesson learned

To the editor: At 2 a.m. on May 29, 1914, the Clyde-built Empress of Ireland was bound for Liverpool from Quebec City, sailing down the wide St. Lawrence River, five miles offshore. A Norwegian ship, the SS Storstad, carrying coal from Nova Scotia to Montreal, was approaching the Empress in darkness. Thick fog rolled in, and the Empress’ captain ordered his vessel to stop and signalled his action by horn. The Storstad’s first officer failed to arouse the captain to inform him of the fog. He became confused and swung the helm, ramming the Empress between the two funnels. The Empress sank in only

14 minutes with the loss of 1,012 lives, of which 840 were passengers, eight more than the Titanic. Of the 138 children aboard, only four survived; of the 167 members of the Canadian Salvation Army Band, en route to London, only eight survived. The account of the tragic sinking of the Empress came to mind when reading David Black’s articles in the 100 Mile House Free Press. He states that under no circumstances should bitumen-carrying tankers be permitted to sail into the pristine waters of British Columbia’s west coast. The beauty of these worldheritage coastlines was screened by Knowledge Network. Four of

the episodes of the “Canada Over The Edge” series were devoted to Canada’s West Coast – well worth purchasing. If, on the centenary on May 29 of Canada’s worst maritime disaster, every reader who agrees with David Black were to e-mail Prime Minister Stephen Harper (, and Cathy McLeod, MP (cathy. on that day, the deluge of emails would be vastly more effective than sporadic e-mails. If readers of David Black’s other newspapers did the same, the deluge would be staggering!

ast week’s column on the proposal to add a mandatory high school course on the effects of Canada’s Aboriginal residential school policy attracted a range of responses – some of which are printable. I referred to comments made by British Columbia Teachers’ Federation vice-president Glen Hansman at a 2012 Aboriginal education conference, where he insisted “racism is the norm in public schools – still today” because of a colonial perspective that remains ingrained in our culture. Aboriginal education has been built into social studies curriculum for years. It’s come a long way from my high school days, where Mr. Spillers, my Grade 8 English teacher, assigned us an essay proposing solutions to Canada’s “Indian problem.” That was 1972, and it was the only time the subject came up. My lone Aboriginal classmate wasn’t around by then. I never saw him again after we graduated from our rural elementary school. How are things now? I received a thoughtful letter from a young woman who graduated from high school in the

and there were times when Aboriginal people showed great agency (retaining the masked dance, and continuing to fish salmon, for example). “Knowing that native society was not a Utopia when Europeans arrived does not take away from the importance of learning about the full history of Aboriginal people and their relationship with Canadian society. “And, of course, as Ernie Crey has reminded me many times, let’s never forget that native rights are not based on race. Rather, they are rights based on prior occupation. And let’s also not forget that it is British and Canadian law that recognizes Aboriginal peoples’ inherent rights. “Let’s teach good history to our youth, so they can understand the complex relationship between settler society and Aboriginal society. Through knowledge comes understanding and through understanding can come reconciliation.” Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @ tomfletcherbc Email:

the province Lightning strike ignites house fire Williams Lake — The owners of a home on Fox Mountain say it’s a miracle they escaped unharmed after lightning caused their home to catch fire Monday, May 19. While they were eating dinner, there was a thunder shower and they believe lightning hit a tree right near the home. The wife said the strike ran down the tree, across the clothesline, blowing it off. It then hit the back light, knocking it out of the socket and that’s where the fire ignited. Within minutes of being called at 6 p.m. the Williams Lake Fire Dept. arrived with four apparatus and 24 firefighters. “We also had mutual aid from Wildwood with two tenders and four firefighters,” deputy fire chief Rob Warnock said. “We were able to contain the fire into the attic area.” The home was a 30-year-old log home with a tile roof that was built by the owners.

Dog killed in crash near Savona KAMLOOPS — Two men have been taken to hospital and a dog has died following an accident on Highway 1 near Savona. The accident took place at about 1:30 p.m. on May 23. A 2000 red Dodge pickup truck was travelling eastbound on Six Mile Hill, about five kilometres east of Savona, when the vehicle suddenly crossed the centre lane, drove across the westbound lane and went down a 100-foot embankment. The truck came to a rest at the bottom of the incline, its roof crushed and the rest of the body badly damaged. The driver managed to get out of the vehicle and climb back up to the highway, where two RCMP cruisers, two ambulances and at least one fire engine had arrived. Firefighters climbed down the embankment to rescue the passenger from the truck. The passenger, was loaded into an air ambulance and flown to hospital. The driver was taken to hospital by ground ambulance. A black dog was in the truck when it left the highway. Despite efforts by emergency personnel to save the canine, it died at the scene.

Yes, it is the Variety Club. I buy one of their Robert Bateman wildlife prints each year. I usually just give them away to friends or family.

It is the Canadian Cancer Society. I am a 14-year survivor and my wife is a four-year survivor.

On an annual basis, it is the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. I have a friend who participates in the CIBC Run for the Cure.

Yes, I give to BC Children’s Hospital. I usually support their Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. I chose it because my husband, who passed away, was a great Vancouver Canucks fan.

C apsule C omments In Australia, in February each year they have a “FebFast”. It’s a charity movement which challenges you to take a 28-day break from alcohol and raise funds for youth addiction. It’s a great idea to give up one thing in your life for a good cause. You don’t have to wait till February to try it and the person to benefit from this fast would be you and your health and the charity of your choice.

If you are over 65, getting a pneumonia shot is a good idea. This is especially important if you have a chronic illness. Those under 65 who have compromised immune systems or a chronic disease should also receive a pneumonia shot. Those who experience muscle pain from taking cholesterol-lowering “statin” drugs may have an alternate therapy in the future. Researchers are looking at creating antibodies that will circulate through the blood and lower the bad LDL cholesterol. Still in the trial phase but show much promise. The summer holiday season is fast approaching and it’s a good time to review the contents of your first-aid kit to keep in your car during your travels. The kit should contain things like a digital thermometer, assorted bandages and tape, medication to reduce pain and fever, some hydrocortisone cream for stings and bites, some skin antiseptic and antihistamines.

Local RCMP appreciate public’s support


report RCMP in 100 Mile House were busy over the past week with 83 calls for service. Of those calls, RCMP responded to 27 reports by motorists about erratic drivers on the local roadways and eight collisions. They also removed two impaired driver’s from the road and issued dozens of violation tickets for driving offences.

Public support 100 Mile House RCMP would, first, like to thank all the citizens who take the time to report dangerous driving incidents in the area. These reports assist the RCMP in locating and stopping reckless behaviour that could result in injury or loss of life and are very necessary as police can’t be everywhere all the time. Secondly, RCMP would like to issue a warning to all drivers operating motor vehicles in the area. 100 Mile House RCMP and Cariboo Chilcotin

Traffic Services take dangerous driving behaviour very seriously. We simply ask that each driver accept that responsibility with equal seriousness and drive how you would want those driving the vehicles around you to drive. Missing children May 25 is National Missing Children’s Day in Canada. For the RCMP, it is a symbolic day of renewed hope and remembrance of those children still missing. The RCMP has marked this day with a week long campaign


starting May 25. Seven Missing Children from across Canada will be featured on the website, canadas Visit that website to see these stories and find much more information about missing persons cases in Canada. For 100 Mile House specifically, cases of missing persons should be of particular interest as we are located on Highway 97, a major artery, flowing with people travelling through the province and potential route of many missing persons or their abductors. Public mischief As it is the start of warmer months and nearing the end of the school year, reports

of mischief and other issues involving youth in the community have begun to increase in number. The 100 Mile House RCMP require the assistance of the public in two specific ways. Police would like to encourage parents to take active roles in the day to day lives of their children and encourage positive activities for them. The alternative is a visit from the RCMP and possible criminal and civil liability. Secondly, the RCMP encourages the public to report all acts of mischief they witness. Mischief to property can be reported to the RCMP and destruction of parks, land or wildlife should be reported using the RAPP line.

With your help, youth with a problem and in need of extra guidance can be reached before further damage is done. Record checks Finally, the RCMP would like to inform the public that with the end of the school year, comes an increase in requests for criminal record checks through the local RCMP. At this time, Criminal


record checks are taking up to three weeks to complete. The administrative staff of the 100 Mile House RCMP recommend that anyone expecting to require a criminal record check come in sooner rather than later to ensure you are able to participate in your fun summer activities without the legal headaches.

“We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Canadian Periodical Fund of the Department of Canadian Heritage.”

Nestled in the woods just a 35-minute drive northeast of 100 Mile House is Lake Of The Trees Bible Camp (LOTT). Located on the sparkling shores of Lake Of The Trees, the Bible camp offers various three- to 10-day excursions between June 30 and Aug. 23 for children and youth in assorted age groups. There is always plenty of outdoor fun and activities, with canoeing, kayaking, swimming, tubing, blobbing and archery for junior campers (aged seven-10) right up to teens (1316). Campers aged pre-teen (10-13) and up can also enjoy the mini-golf course and fishing, while a climbing wall, water slide and paintball course at LOTT is open to the teens. Optional skills training is available for model rocketry (junior/pre-teen), water sports (teen) and horsemanship (pre-teen/teen).

There’s even a two-night camp for “squirts” aged 6-9, and a three-night family camp for the whole gang, mom and dad included. The Christian-centred Bible camp also provides an opportunity for campers to explore the scriptures and ask questions. Everyone gathers daily at the chapel and nightly at the campfire to sing songs and learn more about the Bible. Children and youth who are not religious or don’t go to church are welcomed at LOTT, and each year many do sign up for a chance to explore something new to them. While the majority are from the South Cariboo, campers come to LOTT from all over British Columbia and Alberta. Early bird savings are available for those who register before May 31. More information about the camp, the various sessions offered, work crew volunteering (ages 14-17) and registration forms is at www.lakeofthe, or call 250-791-5502.

Outreach hosted against homophobia

Ongoing events for a Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School PRIDE project included a student presentation on May 8 by the Out In Schools organization based in Vancouver. The PRIDE project focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) awareness and understanding. Out In Schools program co-ordinator Jen Sung and facilitator Nico McKay made a presentation and fielded questions from the numerous youth who crowded the student lounge to learn more. Sung notes the independent organization is hired by schools across British Columbia to appear and make similar presentations. “It is definitely needed. We were just so thrilled to have the opportunity to engage with [the students and] the public in 100 Mile House and the region and its service providers.” The overall project is the brainchild of PSO Grade 12 student Josie Jaegar who also formed

The project was recently awarded a $1,500 Youth Initiative Grant by the United Way and will include other upcoming events, such as hosting an educator for folks across the community. Sung gives kudos to Jaegar for making the effort to create this important project. “We rely on the social

champions in our region and our world really, to take on these initiatives. “Without Josie to advocate for this and to share her story ... students wouldn’t be able to connect with each other. We aren’t understanding each other’s differences

(Next to the Iron Horse Pub) • As young trees grow, remove lower branches gradually to raise the

crown, and remove branches that are too closely spaced on the trunk. • Remove multiple leaders on evergreens and other trees where a single leader is desirable. Pruning young shrubs is not as critical as pruning young trees, but take care to use the same principles to encourage good branch structure. • When planting bare root deciduous shrubs for hedges, prune each plant to within 6 inches of the ground. • Newly planted shrubs require little pruning if they were containergrown or were dug with a soil ball. Pruning large established trees Leave the pruning of large trees to qualified tree care professionals who have the proper equipment. Most hardwood trees have rounded crowns that lack a strong leader, and such trees may have many lateral branches. The three most common types of tree pruning are: • Crown Thinning – selectively removing branches on young trees throughout the crown. This promotes better form and health by increasing light penetration and air movement. Strong emphasis is on removing weak branches. (Don't overdo it on mature trees.) • Crown Raising – removing lower branches on developing or mature trees to allow more clearance above lawns, sidewalks, streets, etc. • Crown Reduction – removing larger branches at the top of the tree to reduce its height. When done properly, crown reduction pruning is different from topping because branches are removed immediately above lateral branches, leaving no stubs. Crown reduction should be done only when absolutely necessary. Proper branch pruning • To shorten a branch or twig, cut it back to a side branch or make the cut about 1/4 inch above the bud. • Always prune above a bud facing the outside of a plant to force the new branch to grow in that direction. Pruning large branches • To remove large branches, three or four cuts will be necessary to avoid tearing the bark. Make the first cut on the underside of the branch about 18 inches from the trunk. Undercut one-third to onehalf way through the branch. Make the second cut an inch further out on the branch; cut until the branch breaks free. • Before making the final cut severing a branch from the main stem, identify the branch collar. The branch collar grows from the stem tissue around the base of the branch. Make pruning cuts so that only branch tissue (wood on the branch side of the collar) is removed. Be careful to prune just beyond the branch collar, but DON'T leave a stub. If the branch collar is left intact, the wound will seal more effectively. • The third cut may be made by cutting down through the branch, severing it. If, during removal, there is a possibility of tearing the bark on the branch underside, make an undercut first and then saw through the branch. Continued on Page a17

Gardening Growing Tomatoes in the Cariboo Gardening in the spring is one of my favorite passions. The rebirth we witness is quite miraculous, never ceases to amaze, and a promise we can always count upon. It is creation at its finest. Our small greenhouse business developed from a love of gardening, and most satisfying are the new things we learn every year about seeds, plant growth, fertilizers, hardening off the plants and new ways in which to cook the bounty of our harvest. We sell perennials which we have propagated from plants growing on our property, therefore assurance can be taken that they are hardy for this climate. Everything else is grown from seeds. That such tiny seeds could become beautiful flowers or life giving nourishment for the body still leaves us in awe. Most gardeners, whether seasoned or new like to grow tomatoes. This delicious fruit is easy to grow, following a few basic guidelines. Determinate tomatoes are those which grow to be a determinate size, needing only a wire cage for support, indeterminate varieties will grow as tall as you let them, support being supplied by a loose piece of string fastened at the bottom of the plant and to the ceiling. Either one requires good rich soil, good drainage, warmth, plenty of light and as the plant develops, lots of water on a consistent basis. We recommend people bury the stem, leaving only the top two or three leaves above of the ground. Leave the stem leaves on, and bury them also, extra roots will sprout from these leaves, giving more nourishment to your plants. These roots will be just below the surface of the soil, making top dressing with fertilizer throughout the growing season easy. As your plant grows it will develop blossoms which become fruit. When one blossom branch has totally become small fruit. remove the leaves that are just below the branch, this is particularly easy for the indeterminate types but also applies to

the bush variety ensuring maximum yield. Good pruning allows more nourishment in developing and ripening the fruit. This pruning concept can also be applied to basket tomatoes and other container varieties. For the bush variety of tomato, always leave the side shoots to grow, for indeterminate varieties an extra two to three side stems can be nurtured along with the main stem for additional production, all others should be removed regularly. Our recommended choice of fertilizer is well rotted compost, mix in a little sand and bone and blood meal for extra nutrition. The

calcium in the bone meal will prevent blossom end rot, which occurs from calcium deficiency. Keep a small fan running at all times, ensuring good air circulation. Keep your tomatoes warm but not too hot. When nearing the end of the growing season, prune away the tops down to the last cluster of developing tomatoes, remove unnecessary leaves, giving your fruit the ultimate opportunity to ripen. Before frost sets in, harvest red, slightly blushing or green tomatoes, placing them in single layers in shallow cardboard boxes in a warm environment to complete ripening, then store in the fridge. We are generally still eating one year’s tomatoes in January of the next year. Growing tomatoes is easy enough, indulging in the harvest is healthy, cost saving and extremely satisfying. Article provided by Stephanie & Siegfried Klausat, Timothy Lake Farm

Pruning keeps trees and shrubs healthy CONTINUED FROM PAGE A16 • Research has shown wound dressing is not normally needed on pruning cuts. However, if wounds need to be covered to prevent insect transmission of certain diseases such as oak wilt, use latex rather than oilbased paint. Timing The late dormant season is best for most pruning.


Pruning in late winter, just before spring growth starts, leaves fresh wounds exposed for only a short length of time before new growth begins the wound sealing process. Another advantage of dormant pruning is that it's easier to make pruning decisions without leaves obscuring plant branch structure. Pruning at the proper time can avoid certain disease and physiological problems.

Ken Huber, a Kamloops boxer who grew up in 100 Mile House, is fighting in Kelowna at the Western Canadian Amateur Championships, sanctioned by the World Boxing Council (WBC), on May 31.

'Heavy Hands' on another level

Ken Huber's provincial title on the line on Kelowna boxing card Gaven Crites Free Press

Ken Huber says he's swinging with heavy hands in this one. The Kamloops cruiserweight, who grew up in 100 Mile House, is putting his provincial title on the line in Kelowna at the Western Canadian Amateur Championships, sanctioned by the World Boxing Council (WBC), on May 31. Huber, 30, has an amateur record of 26-5. The upcoming bout is a rematch against Bryan Colwell, a Victoria fighter who won a splitdecision victory over Huber in March. Huber – nicknamed “Heavy Hands” – is also the current WBC

Western Canadian Cruiserweight champ and current WBC Canadian Cruiserweight champ. He took the first fight against Colwell, a threeround, non-title fight, on a week's notice. Huber says his opponent is “probably one of the best boxers” he's faced, and seems determined to avenge the loss in the five-round rematch. “I've never been so motivated. I've been dropping sparring partners like crazy. I've been travelling for sparring because I can't keep guys around. I've taken it to another level for this fight. I like to tell people I've brought out the heavy hands for this fight. It's all in the

mindset, and I'm going in to win it.” Huber, who co-manages and coaches at the Kamloops Boxing Academy, is also defending his WBC national title in Niagara Falls, Ont. in October. The father of three and full-time mechanic says he's looking for sponsors.

“Everything I'm doing right now is coming out of my pocket. I've got some serious travel expenses to incur in the next little while. Any help would be greatly appreciated.” For more information on sponsorship opportunities, e-mail hubertowin@hotmail. com.

They fielded a shorthanded squad, and a theme quickly developed: What the 100 Mile House girls’ U18 rep soccer team lacked in numbers, they made up for in heart. The team went 0-4 at the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association’s Slurpee Cup May 17-19, but the girls made an impression nonetheless. “During the [MVP] presentations from the opposing coaches... each of them were extremely impressed on how hard our girls worked, how well they did together as a team and the overall heart they played with,” says coach Tory Anchikoski. “The Kamloops coach even explained that he has never seen such hard work and dedication from a team and was really happy that his girls had a chance to play against them.” After dropping games to the European Football School, based in North Vancouver, Burnaby and Edmonton, while playing with minimum subs or no subs at all, 100 Mile House took on Kamloops, a team with 19 players. 100 Mile was two players short for the first half before Kamloops matched their numbers for the second. It was their best game of the tournament, the coach explains. “I was blown away by the girls stamina, heart and overall passion. Every single girl played very well and extremely hard. They all pushed themselves right to the bitter end. The passes, plays, checking and an outstanding performance in net by Tiffany Keating – her come back game and she only has played in net once prior to this – in this last game was the reason the score was not as high as the other games.” A 100 Mile House U14 girls’ team also took the field in Kamloops. Just 12 of the squad’s 17 player were able to attend, which made the four games pretty difficult, explains coach

Thirty-two ladies took part in 108 Ladies Golf Day on May 20. Most of them participated in "Wine for Points.” In order to win points last week participants had to look “like a queen." The club saw many tiaras,

gloves and bling. Next, the members are sporting something from their favourite hockey teams. On May 20, the golfers played “Stableford.” Handicap strokes are awarded per hole and turned into points. Most points in the first

flight went to Carol Ohlund (21), Shelley Larson (19), Clara Koehn (19) and Joanne Garrow (17). The second flight's most points were made by Shannon Knapp (23), Lori Henderson (17), Angela Batahla (14) and Pam Dutchak (14).

Eileen King (20) was top in the third flight, followed by Angie Wahnschaff (18), Wendy Foster (16) and Deb Garrow (14). Janet Roux on No. 6, Leslie Bell on No. 3 and Carol Plautz on No. 7 dropped the longest putts of the day.

on a high note for me,” Gosnell adds. “We had only played Quesnel in two matches prior to this, so finally getting to see the girls play as a team, get tested physically and then persevere was very rewarding. It’s great to know that these girls are ready to play hard and have fun, and while we may not always be competitive against larger teams, we will definitely be in the running for ‘most improved’ team by the end of the season.”

Q: Do I need a will?

A: Only if there is a chance that you might die some day. not, don’t waste your time doing one.


Clients often explain to lawyers that they don’t really need a will because “after all, when I die, it will all go to my spouse and then when he/ she dies, it will go to the kids.” Wrong! In fact, if you have both a spouse and children, when you die, your spouse and children will share your estate. For many, that result could be disastrous. When you die, there is a decent chance that your spouse will no longer have an income - and will need every penny you can give to him or her. A will can prevent the problems which might result if your spouse is forced to share your estate with your children. Another thing you can do in your will is name someone to sell your house and investments - and distribute the proceeds as your will directs. That way, there’s a better chance that this task will be done properly. Do you need a will? Probably. Article written by Centennial Law Corp. (Douglas E. Dent)


Q: What do I need to know about

Q: What is the best way to manage my back pain when I start gardening season?


A: It’s finally time for gardens!! I know everyone has been waiting and feels like it’s time to start and get everything in the ground. Unfortunately this bending and planting and hoeing etc. can be very hard on our mid back or low back especially. Like most extended activities the same rules apply, take lots of breaks and try to equally use both sides. As is true with starting any new activity we start feeling muscles we did not know we had (or at least not since last year!). It is a good idea to come in to see the chiropractor for regular treatments as your back is getting used to the unfamiliar movement. This is usually short term and the body does get used to it and you can carry on through the summer. If you or someone you know is noticing back pain it’s a good time to check out chiropractic. Book your consultation today.

“Liability on the Water”?

If you have waterfront property, and have a dock in the water, you should make sure that you have liability extended to the dock, in the event of someone injuring themselves and filing a law suit against you. This liability coverage can usually be added to your home insurance policy, whether it is your Primary Residence or your Seasonal Property. If you own and operate a Watercraft, you should also make sure that you have liability coverage for the unit, in the event that you cause injury to someone that results in a law suit against you. There are Companies that provide coverage for the Watercraft itself and may also extend liability coverage to the Watercraft. Another option is to see if this coverage can be added to your home insurance policy. Being safe and responsible is always your best protection. office tip: As summer approaches, and our offices get busier, I want to remind you, that as employee lunch breaks are between 12 and 2, we only have half of our staff working and therefore you may experience longer wait times.

Q: I am approaching retirement and have


• Determine what you can afford. Before you put in an offer on a home, get a preapproval and build a realistic budget. Remember that home ownership involves costs beyond the monthly mortgage payment such as utility bills, house insurance, property taxes and upkeep. • You need a minimum of 5% for a downpayment. This can be sourced from: - A gift from an immediate family member - A savings or term investment deposited for a minimum of 90 days - Any recent financial windfall (inheritance or income tax return, for examples) - A non-locked in RSP (opened for 90 days; withdrawn tax free and must be repaid within generally 15 years) - Borrowed downpayment on approved credit (personal loan or line of credit, for examples) • Plan for closing costs. There are additional costs that come with buying a home – lawyer fees, reimbursements, land tax adjustments, house insurance and perhaps a home inspection. You’ll need to have some extra funds set aside to cover these costs; a general guideline is 1.5% of the purchase price.


A: Generally you may choose an immediate pension that provides you with an income for life. There are also several options to provide an income for your spouse/family in the event of your death including joint pensions and guarantee periods. Depending on your age you may also have the choice to “commute” or take a lump sum benefit. These funds can be transferred to a locked in RRSP or LIF or used to purchase an annuity (or both). Your choice should be based on your unique situation. I recommend creating a retirement income plan which provides a projection of your retirement income for life including CPP, OAS and personal savings. The plan also considers survivor income, tax, government benefits, inflation, liquidity, health and dental benefits as well as your estate. This type of planning allows you to make an informed choice. All activities relating to life and disability insurance products and services are the sole responsibility of the agent.

I have a program popping up on my computer telling me I have problems what is this?

These programs are what we refer to as junkware. They worm their way into your computer (usually through an infected web site - sometimes as a free add-on to a downloaded game). Often, part of what these programs do when they get in your computer, is they install other junkware. After a short while, your computer has enough of this junk in it that performance is crippled to a slowerthan-slow pace. These programs typically have helpful sounding names but are far from a benefit for you to have. Optimizer Pro, Advanced System Protector, My PC Backup, Speed Up My PC, Web steroids - this is just a short list. These programs need to be removed but an additional scan for malware also needs to be done to remove the background (usually hidden) installers that will just keep re-installing this junkware. Gold Rush Technologies can help you remove and clean out your computer. Computer Sales: Custom Desktop PCs; Notebooks; Netbooks; Upgrades; Gaming Systems

Cathy McLeod running for Tories in 2015 On May 12, Bob Gieselman, Candidate Nomination Committee chair for the KamloopsThompson- Cariboo Electoral District Association, said Cathy McLeod has been acclaimed as the Conservative Party candidate for the next federal election in 2015. “As nomination committee chair, I’m pleased to report the nomination process was completed as per our bylaws set by the Conservative Party of Canada. There were no other candidates who submitted an application.” The Conservative Party of Canada is currently conducting open nominations in all 338 ridings for the 2015 federal election, he added. McLeod was first elected to the House of Commons in October 2008 and was re-elected in 2011. She was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Labour and for Western Economic Diversification in September 2013. Previously, she was appointed as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Revenue in January 2011.

It rained a lot, but the budding cowboys and cowgirls rode hard and fast in a number of exciting events in the dirt and mud that was the grounds at the Outriders’ Arena. “It’s one of the those things that go on no matter what the weather is,” says organizer Denise Little. “There were diehards that stayed right to the end.” Most of the entries were members of the BC Little Britches Rodeo Association working towards year-end points, as well as prizes, Little adds. “We have been told that we are the number 1 rodeo on the Little Britches circuit for the quality of the prizes and for the program we put out. So a big thank you to all the sponsors who make this possible. “It was a good rodeo, in spite of the rain everything did run smoothly and in spite of the late finish it was good. Everyone left happy, even if they were wet and muddy.”

Great turnout for first Wild &Wooly Spring Schooling Show

100 Mile & District Outriders Club’s Wild & Wooly Spring Schooling Show on May 11 was a successful start for the new season, says spokesperson Nicole Dupont. Noting the weather was great for the event, Dupont says there were 29 entries for the English and Western classes. Everything ran very smoothly and the judge was Darhl Paley from Prince George, she says, adding the numbers were about the same as last year, with 30 being the number they “shoot’ for. “We were happy to see the number of young people out because we’re always trying to promote them. We had 13 young riders out, so that was great.” The next show is the annual June Fun & Frolic Spring Schooling Show at the Outriders Arena behind the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on Airport Road on June 14-15, starting at 8:30 a.m. both days. Dressage Percentage Day and Hunter Jumper Classes will be featured on Saturday and the English and Western Show goes on Sunday. Patricia AmosThomas f rom Armstrong is the judge, and the events are BC Heritage Qualifiers.

new resource road radio channels on May 31, 2014. • The Cariboo-Chilcotin Natural Resource District will begin implementing new resource road radio channels on June 16, 2014.

Forest industry workers and other road users using mobile radios must reprogram their radios to incorporate the new resource road channels. Since the transition will be gradual, it’s recommended that road users retain current radio frequencies until they are no longer required. New signs posted on local resource roads indicate which radio channel to use and the calling interval, with drivers required to indicate their direction of travel and their vehicle type. All road users are reminded that forest service roads are not radio-controlled, but radio-assisted. All users should drive safely and according to road and weather conditions. It is strongly recommended that all resource road users exercise additional caution during this transition period. Local resource road safety committees have worked together to implement these changes. More information (including radio communications protocols, radio channels, maps and signs) is available online at: If you have questions about this project, please contact a Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations office (100 Mile House Natural Resource District at 250 395-7800 or Cariboo-Chilcotin Natural Resource District at 250 398-4345), or Industry Canada at 1 800 667-3780.

Obituaries Nixdorf

Andrew Clarence “Duck” We regret to announce that Andrew “Duck” passed away on May 17, 2014 after succumbing to cancer. He is survived by his mother Jean Nixdorf, brothers; Larry (Geraldine) and Byron, his sisters; Pearl (David) O’Brien and Donna Allen as well as many nephews, aunts, uncles and very close friends. Andy loved being outdoors spending his free time exploring on his quad and fishing with very good friends and family. There will be a celebration of Andrew’s life on August 30, 2014 at the Deka Lake Fire Hall from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers a donation in Andrew’s memory to the Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.


Kenneth Frank It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Ken Smith; beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, who died on the 20th of May 2014 at Kamloops Hospital. Ken leaves a devoted wife, Joan, in Canada and a loving family in England.

Kravontka says, adding l Price: the main Totaattractants are garbage, bird feeders, livestock feed and people leaving pet food outside. “If possible, put your garbage out [no sooner than] an hour before the dump trucks are coming.” Noting every year local conservation officers remove several bears from 100 Mile, he says 108 Mile Ranch “was particularly bad” last year. “What we usually do is trap them or put a leg hold snare out. Or else, depending on the situation, we’ll dispatch them.” Local residents don’t have to look very far for a sad reminder of how dangerous the large animals can be. A 36-year-old woman, Lorna Weafer, was killed by a bear at a Suncor oil sands site near Fort McMurray on May 7.

New nest Eagles for

Principal: facility upgrades at PSO ‘second to none’ Gaven Crites Free Press


here’s a clean hint of varnish in the air, lines of crisp paint on the new hardwood. Big green letters near the sideline read: “HOME OF THE EAGLES.” Principal Vic Brett is excited, and local students are too. The multi-million dollar gym renovation project at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School in 100 Mile House is nearly completed. One of two construction projects started last September totalling $3 million – the school also got a brand new automotive shop. The new gym is larger, brighter, has a new score clock plus shot clocks fixed to its walls, new basketball

hoops with glass backboards, and an adjoining room with a large climbing wall and weightlifting equipment. Still to be installed are electric bleachers, a dividing wall, a sound system and a drop down screen. The first event expected to be held in the revamped facility – gym classes start there in the next school year – is an Amnesty Concert on June 11 featuring performances by students. “From this day forward, it will be outstanding for [students] to have a facility that’s really second to none for any community of our size,” says Brett during a recent tour of the upgrades. “Staff and students were great during the construction. They put up with a little noise because the future benefits of the students of the 100 Mile region

are going to be outstanding.” During the construction period, students were bused a short drive away to the 100 Mile House Junior Secondary, which amalgamated this year with the local high school, for gym classes. The process was not very disruptive, as some might expect, and actually worked out “quite well,” Brett says. “I have to give our students – especially our Grade 12s and seniors – credit. They were absolutely wonderful leading the way for our school amalgamation this year.” Brett says the school received great support from School District #27, its trustees, and Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. “[Barnett] has been instrumental and wonderful in helping us move forward with the project. They

worked together to make sure we, in 100 Mile, get a more modern and updated facility.” The school is also purchasing new uniforms for its sports teams next year, something the principal expects will add to the sense of pride and school spirit amongst PSO athletes. It seems there’s a lot to look forward to, and be excited about. Brett happily makes his way to the middle of the floor where the school’s mascot is printed in black. “I’ll show you the eagle.”

Writers’ Guild happy with poem contest The South Cariboo Writers’ Guild spokesperson Kimberly VanderHorst says they had some great entries in the guild’s recent poetry contest, which had a spring theme. “When we formed the South Cariboo Writers’ Guild our primary goals were to promote literacy in our community, support our local writers, and encourage members of our community to make use of their creative gifts. In sponsoring our first writing contest, we hoped to achieve all those goals in one fell swoop.” The number of entries far exceeded our expectations, as did the quality, VanderHorst adds. “We’re stunned by the many hidden talents in our area and feel so fortunate to have been allowed to enjoy them. We hope those who weren’t selected will enter future contests.” Regarding this particular contest, she notes the entries were judged based on originality, use of language, rhythm and flow, and emotional power. “The first prize winner and honourable mention both wrote poems that blew us away in all those categories. It was no easy thing to choose between the two! “Both poems were full of gorgeous, springinspired imagery.” First place Carmen Wiebe’s poem, Spring Takes Flight, was selected for first place and she was pleased her poem was selected. “I didn’t know what to expect when I entered the poetry con-

In early April I came across a place where even darkness held its breath, stillness draped itself over each limb and branch.

red-winged blackbirds’ trill weaves through the shimmering floral sunset reflecting tangerine a kaleidoscope of birdsong ice-locked in Lac La Hache gray persists, leaning on tired fenceposts and dull barbed wire 100 monochromatic miles interrupted by flit and flutter of male mountain bluebird azure paintbrush on the wind wind that flies through with hail on her coattails, douglas fir trembling 100 monochromatic miles preening until verdant buds burst, meltwater trickles downward gravity pulls and spring takes flight test, being new to the South Cariboo, but I was excited to have the opportunity to write. My poetry comes in small waves of inspiration and this contest was good motivation.” Wiebe says she was inspired by the endless amount of birds in the South Cariboo and wanted to capture an up-and-down motion in the poem alongside

the stretch and pull of spring. “Spring can be drab and dramatic at the same time and I tried to focus on that. When I heard that my poem won, I was stoked and I am excited to write even more.” Honourable mention Elisha Campbell says she was very pleased to have her poem,

Overcome with heaviness I sat amidst tendrils of fog, listened to unspoken stories of a lonesome dryad. A lifetime passed when slowly the mists parted, revealed a figure beckoning me further into the embrace of ebon-clothed trees. I followed her into the depths of silence and lost myself in the spaces between time. Etherealism, selected as the honourable mention. “I am ecstatic to have been chosen as an honourable mention, and I look forward to reading the first prize piece as well.

Campbell adds the inspiration for her poem was actually a scene that floated into her mind’s eye as she sat thinking about spring mornings/evenings. “All I could envision

was silver fog drifting through black tree trunks in the dim light; it always looks magical and vaguely like something out of a fantasy story in my mind. With that image in my head, I simply sat down and began to write.” VanderHorst says the guild members really enjoyed these poems, and look forward to holding more contests in the future. “We’re so grateful to the 100 Mile House Free Press for publishing the winners and helping their lovely words find a wider audience.” To learn more about The South Cariboo Writers’ Guild and how to be a part of it, information can be found at www.

CCR tribute draws lively crowd

Gaven Crites Free Press

With the help of the Hun City Hunnies, a classic rock band was revived in 100 Mile House, and a local family program is set to benefit. A Chicago-based Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute band – Creedence Revived – played to a couple of hundred spectators at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on May 18. “The band was so much fun and they put on a great show,” says Jennifer Frizzi, a member of the Hun City Hunnies, a non-profit society that organizes fun events and raises money for community causes. “They mentioned to us more than once how energetic and

Unfortunately, the concert didn’t generate any extra cash, Frizzi explains. “‘Net revenue’ is not in our vocabulary at the moment. In any case, it’s important to us that we support Kindergym. It’s such a valuable program for our town, and our society is thrilled to donate $500 to invest in the program’s future.” Hunnies member Nadaya Tresierra says organizing events in this town isn’t easy. “One of the big challenges that our society faces is inspiring the public to come out and show their community

Giant planter, bake, craft sale scheduled for Canim Store, May 31 What’s On CANIM LAKE

Peter Hart 250 397-2645

Dear Canimites, Spring’s beauty shines, greens of a thousand shades, flowers appearing, and the mammoth Planter, Bake and Craft Sale set to happen May 31 at the Canim Lake Store, 10 a.m.-noon. Sweet voice Kira Saenger, daughter of Fred and Gail Saenger of Canim Lake, wowed audiences at the recent 100 Mile Festival of the Arts.

She won the George Kellett Memorial Award for Jazz Vocal, and a gold rating in the minstrel category from her adjudicator for her performance of House of the Rising Sun. Kira is one of the 10 finalists in the Cariboo Idols competition. The 14-year-old Grade 9 student is coached by Pat Friesen of 100 Mile House. Gail credits Hisako Arai and her speech arts class in Forest Grove for Kira’s stage confidence. Mahood Lake gathering Folks in the Mahood Lake area gathered at the home of Bob and Carol MacKenzie to enjoy a meal and discuss local concerns. Top of mind were road issues, particular-

by monitoring the lake’s turbidity. In addition, the society is purchasing a medical oxygen tank, blood pressure cuff and related gear, so local Samaritans can better respond to medical emergencies in the community.

Less garbage to be collected on Forest Grove area roadsides FOREST GROVE Doris E Rufli 250-397-7775

May 12 turned out to be a bright, sunny day and perfect for the annual cleanup efforts of Forest Grove and surrounding areas. The Forest Grove Walking Group and volunteers met at the fire hall at their usual time of 11 a.m. before heading back out again, donning gloves and trash bags. One group worked its way along Canim-Hendrix Lake Road towards the dump, while the other started clearing the roadsides around the village. The overall consent was that there was a lot less trash to be picked up than in years gone by, which is a positive sign and very much appreciated. End-of-year recital The time has come for the Fourth Annual End of Year Recital at the Forest Grove Community Hall. The Forest Grove Rural School Society invites everyone to join the elementary school students for an evening of poetry, stories and prose on June 6 at 6:30 p.m.

This will be your last chance to attend this event, according to Hisako Arai, so please come and support the students. Reminder Forest Grove Elementary School is organizing another bottle drive fundraiser, on June 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,with all proceeds going towards the school and various programs for students.


The collection point is Forest Grove Public Storage (along the access road to Forest Grove Supplies) where hotdogs will be for sale.

Students enjoying spring weather and activities Bridge Lake School

Sergei DeVries & Vannet Simons McKenzie

Hey, everyone, we hope you are catching a few sun rays with this beautiful spring weather! At Bridge Lake Elementary School, everyone is happy that spring has finally arrived. We are all very excited because there are only two more months of school. Here are some things we’ve done and are looking forward to doing. The grades 5, 6 and 7 class had its annual badminton tournament recently. It was a lot of fun! The tournament took place over two afternoons. The students were not very competitive, but we did get chocolate Easter Bunnies as prizes. There were eight teams and each team won a prize. Yah! The Missoula Theatre Company came back to Bridge Lake School.

Missoula Theatre Company comes from Montana. They travel throughout the United States and Canada. In many cities, four or five schools get to learn the basics of play acting from Missoula. The two directors, Stephanie and Anna, who came to our school worked on a play, The Wizard of Oz, with us for the week, and then on Friday, we preformed the play. We had two performances, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. Bridge Lake students were so excited about the opportunity to work with and learn from the two presenters. We had a great week of acting, dancing, singing and working together. We would like to thank the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) for sponsoring the theatre group. Educo camp Thanks to the PAC members of Bridge Lake School, we will be going to Educo camp. The PAC has made plans for us to go in June and we will stay for two days. At Educo you learn to go out of your comfort zone. We hope it will be a lot of fun for everyone. Shindy Pletzer will be taking her grades 4-7 students on June 9-10. Have a great spring! Vannet Simons McKenzie and Sergei DeVries are Grade 7 students.

Local news The craft store in 70 Mile House opened on the May long weekend. The Little Horse Lodge re-opened under new ownership.

Ask an Expert:

How can I recognize when my roof system has problems? All too often, roof system problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic (twice-a-year) inspections often can uncover cracked, warped or missing shingles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts; and other visible signs of roof system problems. Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.

What are my options if I decide to reroof?

You have two basic options: You can choose a complete replacement of the roof system, involving a tear-off of your existing roof system, or re-cover the existing roof system, involving only the installation of a new roof system. If you’ve already had one re-cover installed on your original roof system, check with a professional roofing contractor. In many instances, building code requirements allow no more than one roof system recover before a complete replacement is necessary.

My roof leaks. Do I need to have it replaced completely?

Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged. A complete roof system failure, however, generally is irreversible and a result of improper installation or choice of materials or the roof system installation is inappropriate for the home or building.

Carriage-driving event cancelled South Green Lake

Gail Potter


The Huber Farm carriage-driving field trials at 70 Mile House were cancelled on May 18 due to the inclement weather. The drivers were worried about the wet

grounds, and since it was the first event of the season for most of them, they thought it would be better to save the ponies for the next event. However, they all walked the cones and marathon course with Ken and Dennis Huber to discuss the best way to negotiate the cones and the different choices of routes were discussed for each hazard on the marathon. The next driving event is the Cariboo Trails CDE at the Huber Farm on July 19-20. The Hubers need about 26

volunteers to help with the event, so if you can spare some time and want to enjoy the outdoors and watching the event while helping, please call Ken at 250456-6050. Garage sale great The South Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (SGLVFD) garage/bake sale was very well attended in spite of the poor weather. They sold more than 350 pies, which were baked over a six week period by the dedicated,

hard-working Ladies Auxiliary members. There was a wide selection of apple, cherry and berry pies. The majority of the pies were sold within the first hour, with only eight apple pies left at the end of the sale. There was also a good selection of butter tarts, Rice Krispies squares, cupcakes and bread. Tickets were sold for raffle items, which were donated by local businesses and raised $595. The garage sale items brought in more than $1,000 and the final tally is still waiting for the

baking revenue. As always, the money raised by the garage/ bake sale goes back into the operational funds for the SGLVFD. The organizers thank everyone for their tremendous support. Thank you I am sad to say goodbye to all my readers and it has been very exciting for me to be able to report on our local activities throughout these past years. I wish everyone good health and great memories. Have a great summer!
