Strike impacts students and families Teachers’ union: bargaining is all about compromise

Carole Rooney Free Press

The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) continued its rotating strikes at schools across the province this week. The one-day strikes scheduled for June 2-6 (no action today on June 4) closed public schools in the Cariboo-Chilcotin on June 2. School District #27 chair Tanya Guenther says the board does not like to see this lengthy dispute still ongoing, and another round of walkouts and lockouts. “We don’t like to see impacts to students and families, either, and we hope for a resolution at the bargaining table to have a negotiated settlement within a reasonable amount of time. Because, to see it go on has impact on our students and families.” Teachers will hear by today (June 4) if the Labour Relations Board (LRB) will allow school districts to cut teachers’ pay 10 per cent as a result of their withdrawal of services in recent strike action.

The LRB heard the BCTF’s arguments on May 29, with government’s bargaining agent, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA), also on hand for the full-day hearing. Education Minister Peter Fassbender points the finger at the BCTF for the continued delay on reaching a settlement. “I am profoundly disappointed that while we’re still at the table, with all of the talk that’s been going on, that children and parents and communities are continuing to be held hostage and put in the middle of this dispute.” Fassbender says he wants to see a negotiated settlement at the bargaining table, and reiterated his unwillingness to legislate teachers back to work in order to end the strike. “... I think the pattern we’ve seen in the past has been exactly that – we have disputes, we have limited, or more significant, strike action and then there’s legislation. “I think we need to break that cycle of dysfunction when it comes to bargaining with the BCTF....”

However, BCTF president Jim Iker says teachers across the province are committed to negotiating a fair and reasonable settlement – which must include improvements to learning conditions. “It’s time for Premier Christy Clark to free up the resources that will bring the two sides closer together and ensure students start the next school year with smaller classes, more support for children with special needs, and extra one-on-one time.” The union leader also demands government be flexible on their wage expectations, and to “show some good faith and willingness” to move. “Teachers know that bargaining is about compromise, but we cannot be the only ones expected to move. Collective bargaining is about compromise and moving forwards, not backwards.” If the teacher walkouts continue next week, watch for further updates in media reports and on the SD27 website at School principals will also be able to provide parents with information.

Canim Lake Band athletes compete Canada/U.S. Indigenous games bring youth to Regina

Canim Lake Band athlete Dixie-Lane Boyce used a drag chute to hone her muscles and skills for the North American Indigenous Games (NIAG) in July, where she will compete in track-and-field events against other Aboriginal athletes across Canada and the United States.

He also attended the camp and gave support for the boys during this event.” Diamond says the band also had a lot of great help for the eight nimble and accomplished trackand-field athletes, who qualified. “Kelly Ricketts from Zeus Fight Science Boxing and Fitness has given our two throwers, Quincy Archie and Lillian Emile, lots of coaching with javelin, discus and shot put.” Canadian Olympian bronze medalist Lynn Kanuka is SportMedBC’s RunWalk coach, and conducted a training session with the athletes at Canim Lake, she adds. “Lori Meville, the track coach

group of 12 local First Nations youth will compete in the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) with other Aboriginal athletes from across Canada and the United States. Canim Lake Band recreation co-ordinator Tish Diamond says the canoe/kayak paddlers and track-and-field athletes will travel to Regina for the week-long games July 20-27. She adds it is “really exciting” because the paddlers have not had a lot of opportunity to gain experience compared to their competition, but the band provides them with a lot of other ways to stay fit. “The athletes for canoe/ kayak took part in the 2013 BC Aboriginal Provincial Canoe & Kayak Championships at Seabird Island [Agassiz] last September, and they came home with gold, silver and bronze medals. This event was a Team BC Development Squad selection event.” These energetic and skilled local paddlers then qualified to compete in Regina by their stellar performance at a three-day Enderby Marathon Canoe Clinic/NAIG Team Selection Assessment in Enderby two months ago. “All four boys from Canim Lake did really well in their events and have made it successfully onto Team BC. “Dennis Wick from 108 Mile

from the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School, has also offered support, and Clare Fast, a kinesiologist, and Anne Kolodziej, a personal trainer, have also been key in getting these athletes ready for NAIG.” Diamond notes fundraising activities are ongoing to help these youth, aged 12-18, to go to Regina to compete. “We made $390 at a rodeo in Williams Lake, selling bannock, Indian [fried bread] tacos and chili. Thanks to everyone who helped.” She adds they raised $300 with bannock sales at the South Cariboo Rodeo, and two local businesses and an individual have also pledged to donate funds. Marnie Erickson went around the community and collected more than $1,000, and Pam Theodore secured a $1,000 donation from Ainsworth Lumber, Diamond notes. Three volunteers are also being lined up, who Diamond hopes will help at its Aboriginal Day event concession selling Indian tacos. The date for that annual celebration is yet to be determined and should be announced shortly, but

typically is fairly close to aligning with the June 21 National Aboriginal Day. The athletes going to NAIG in Regina are: (canoe/kayak) Stephen Theodore-Jensen, Julian Bob, Phoenix Paul and Terrance Hubrick Archie; (track and field) Jolee Campbell, Dixie-Lane Boyce, Montana Erickson, Susan Emile, Lillian Emile, Cameron Amut, Morris Bob and Quincy Archie. Diamond says Canim Lake Band administrator Alana Dixon, staff and chief and council have made health and fitness a priority for all community members. “They have been very dedicated in developing a community-based sports, recreation and fitness plan for all age groups, plus promoting awareness of sports and recreation opportunities in competition at the community, provincial, national and world level, including career opportunities in this field. “Without this dedication from the band, and the parents who make sure their children make it to these events, it would not be possible for these young athletes to achieve their goals.”

100 Mile House area resident Phillip May, 59, has been charged with attempted murder and multiple other charges stemming from a shooting incident on the weekend. Around 8:25 a.m. on May 31, 100 Mile House RCMP responded to a complaint of a man in distress in the 7000 block of 93 Mile Loop Rd. When officers attended scene, they found a 39-year-old 100 Mile House area man who had been shot. The victim, who was suffering from serious but nonlife threatening injuries, was rushed to hospital. During the initial police investigation, May was identified as the suspect. Officers then went to an Evergreen Drive resident in the Lone Butte area to arrest the suspect. When they arrived, officers confirmed May was present; however, they set up containment areas around the residence because they believed he was armed.

RCMP vehicles pinned a suspect in his getaway vehicle after members performed a PIT manoeuvre to force the vehicle off the road on May 31. The suspect in an attempted murder incident continued racing away from police after running over a spike belt.

Additional RCMP resources were immediately requested from the Williams Lake and Prince George detachments. However, prior to arrival of the backup officers, May fled the residence, hopped into a vehicle and raced away from the scene. When the suspect fled, the suspect avoided two RCMP road blocks, with spike belts deployed, by driving off road and narrowly missing officers. Members were able to effectively deploy a spike belt at a third location and all four

tires were flattened. Even with four flat tires and driving on the rims, he continued on his quest for escape. Officers continued to pursue the suspect, but fearing he was making his way toward a more populated area and increasing the risk to public safety, officers forced his vehicle off the road. North District media relations spokesperson Cpl. Dave Tyreman says it took a considerable police effort to bring May under control. Tyreman adds officers performed a precision immobilization tech-

Then they boxed the vehicle in, which enabled the officers to take the suspect into custody without incident. May was taken before a justice of the peace where RCMP recommended charges of

May made an appearance in Williams Lake provincial on June 3, and was remanded in custody until his next appearance on June 11.

District of 100 Mile House appreciates funding

Ken Alexander Free Press

K a m l o o p s T h omp s on - C ar i b o o MP Cathy McLeod met with 100 Mile Mayor Mitch Campsall on May 22 to give him the details of the new Gas Tax Fund (GTF) that will help support infrastructure priorities in the District of 100 Mile House. “The [federal/provincial/Unions of British Columbia Communities] agreement for the renewed federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) will provide predictable, stable funding for public infrastructure throughout nine municipalities and districts of KamloopsThompson-Cariboo,” says McLeod. Noting that the federal GTF has been legislated, Campsall says it’s great because now the funding is enshrined in legislation and municipalities will know it’s coming. “Now, you can plan for it for 10 years down the road. Prior to this, you didn’t know if you were definitely going to get it or when you were going to get it.” For 100 Mile House, it means $125,771.59 for 1014/15; $125,771.59 projected for 2015/16; $132,060.22 projected for 2015/17; $132,060.22 projected for 2017/18; and $138,459 projected for 2018/19.

100 Mile Lumber gets initial construction underway

Carole Rooney Free Press

West Fraser 100 Mile Lumber’s new general manager, Sandor Buchi, said last week that the facility rebuild is on schedule for about a sixweek total break at the sawmill. “We anticipate that, between people’s holiday time and our rebuild, our trades and production folks will be quite busy over this summer. We are looking forward to a very busy year at the site.” Already underway is some foundation work and the assembly of two new barkers, and a new stick system was recently installed at the sawmill stacker, he explained. Buchi noted 100 Mile

Noting the overall production will not change much, he added the more efficient technology will consume less electricity while producing more pieces of lumber from each log processed. Andrews explained new crack detection technology will scan logs, and a computer simulator will spin and align them in the best position for the saw, maximizing the number of lumber pieces. This means logs from trees, such as those killed by pine beetles, with checks and splits running along the full length, will then produce good lumber, he said. Andrews added with the current equipment, one crack can



wreck every board, which then ends up in the chipper. He added this also significantly improves safety because broken boards cause jam-ups that must be manually cleared by crews. Andrews said that because the new mill design will handle the wood much more efficiently, this will also help to extend the current timber supply.

The big sendoff


BCPSEA, BCTF need conversation


he relationship between the British Columbia Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) continues to disintegrate. Their recent duelling press conferences have once again magnified the poor state of contract negotiations in public education in B.C. Public education is the cornerstone of a healthy, productive and innovative society. The current round of negotiations is just the latest chapter in a confusing and complex history; both bargaining groups must sort it out – soon. It appears they have given up on making a real effort to find common ground, and instead focused their efforts on winning a publicity battle that is detrimental to our children and their teachers. We will not accomplish anything until both sides dial back the war of words

and make an honest effort what is best for students, to repair their damaged parents and teachers, and relationship. Unfortunately, the quality of our public the more militant voices education system. in the debate have been Neither side in this amplified, effectively debate should use the drowning out the more end of a school year as reasonable ones. leverage.

he Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) graduation ceremony and prom in 100 Mile House went off without a hitch, and in many ways, it was a community celebration. The two-day celebration began with the graduation ceremonies, which is commonly know as the cap-andgown ceremony, and it began with the Class of 2014 grads doing their processional in front of a packed arena at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on May 30. There were a lot of smiles, cheers and clapping and more than a few tears shed by parents, relatives and friends as the grads marched out in pairs. PSO principal Vic Brett was the master of ceremonies, and after the singing of O Canada, Canim Lake Band Chief Mike Archie welcomed everyone to the event with drumming, song and a prayer. School District #27 schools superintendent Mark Thiessen, school board chair Tanya Guenther and 100 Mile Mayor Mitch Campsall gave the official greetings speeches. However, it was Thiessen who caused the biggest stir in the audience when he announced Vic and Edda Brett had officially announced their retirement a few hours before the ceremony began. There was a huge round of well-deserved applause for the Bretts. Joseph Pennock, as well as Kaila Paterson, Mikayla Rottluff and Michelle Contreras provided the musical entertainment. Vic, Geoff Butcher and Ty Lytton presented the diplomas, which was equally enjoyed by the students, parents and the presenters. Cailey Armeneau and Ryan Langford gave the Valedictorian Address to their fellow graduates. The highlight of the evening was the awarding of the Governor General’s Medal to Adrianna Johnson who achieved a 98 per cent average in grades 11 and 12. The Prom was held the next day and it was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by the grads, thanks to the hard work and effort of the parents’ Dry Grad Committee. It started with the grads arriving at the arena in their vintage vehicles and all types of unique and interesting forms of transportation. There was a twist this year. The parade mustered at 100 Mile House Junior Secondary and travelled down Birch Avenue, which was lined on both sides with cheering spectators, before making its way to the arena. It was quite the sendoff for the grads who entered their formal education years as wide-eyed youngsters not knowing what to expect. Then they were nurtured and educated by their different sets of caring teachers who prepared them the best they could to go out into the world as secondary school graduates. Whether the grads choose to go on to post-secondary education or to upgrade their trade skills, they will, eventually, be our future leaders – and we wish them good luck in whatever careers they pursue.

to mend their bitter and unproductive interactions. Let’s focus on an arbitrated contract that will get us through the next two-three years, but keep the mediator around for that period and require all three parties continue meeting until they can reconcile their differences and drastically improve the quality of their negotiations. A strong public education system is the most important investment we can make in our society, and it is not just a longterm investment; the social, economic and cultural benefits of a high quality education are evident immediately. It is not appropriate to let this situation continue to erode; we owe it to our children, their parents and teachers to implement a process to identify the deeprooted issues and resolve them.

Fair Elections Act far from fair To the editor: Election Day is a time when all Canadians, no matter their wealth, health or status, are equal – each has the same say in choosing our government. Yet alarmingly, the integrity of our democracy is threatened by three overwhelming problems in the Conservative government’s Fair Elections Act, Bill C-23. Every Canadian is constitutionally guaranteed the right to vote, yet according to the Chief Electoral

Officer, C-23 risks excluding the vulnerable and marginalized by eliminating the use of vouching to prove your address. While most people can prove their address with a driver’s licence, not everyone can. Seniors living with their children may not even get a bill in their name, much less have a licence. Students move often, and may not have ID with their current address. Indian status cards do not include an address.

For many in these groups, vouching by another elector is the only way to prove where they live. In the last election, 120,000 active voters relied on vouching, but if C-23 passes, they could be shut out. The government claims it is concerned about the error rate with vouching, yet the vast majority of these mistakes are strictly recordkeeping errors by poll workers. There is no evidence to suggest vouching allowed people to vote

Vets ill-served by Tories

To the editor: I served in the Canadian Forces from 1986 to 2000, and as a result I suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I now have a service dog to give me quality of life. Recently, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government closed more Veterans Affairs offices. I believe the government is being very disrespectful to all veterans. The job of a Veterans Affairs minister is to fight for veterans’ rights, to ensure they receive the medical and mental health services they need. Instead, Minister Julian Fantino has thrown Canadian veterans under the bus. He did what the prime minister wanted instead of fighting for us. Fantino should resign his position due to his lack of concern, and his lack of authority, to ensure veterans get the proper mental health help they need immediately to ensure their safety.


Veterans who commit suicide decide to take their lives because they feel the government is not taking PTSD seriously. In the past, it took at least six to eight months to get my veteran’s issues finalized. Now, with these cutbacks, I worry it’s going to be a lot longer. How the Harper government thinks it is doing its best with the quality of life for veterans with this big turnaround time is totally wrong. What confuses me is that the Harper government spent a lot on fake lakes and gazebos during the 2010 G8 summit, but now feels it has to make cuts in Veterans Affairs. I believe Prime Minister Harper doesn’t take care of his soldiers, who provide the freedom in our country. He obviously has his priorities wrong. James McLean Kitchener, Ont.

when they weren’t eligible. Another pillar of our democracy is a level playing field, created through spending limits that ensure big money doesn’t drown out other voices. Yet C-23 exempts “fundraising” from spending limits, which could allow partisan messages to be sent without it being reported to Elections Canada. Finally, C-23 also bans Elections Canada from encouraging Canadians to vote. No other country in the world imposes this

restriction, and in an era when voter turnouts have declined to worrying lows, this restriction is exactly the wrong way to go. Despite these concerns, there are some helpful measures in C-23, like adding another advance polling day or, as I proposed in a Private Member’s Bill two years ago, increasing penalties for those who break the rules. Dominic LeBlanc, MP Liberal House Leader

Serious doctor shortage

To the editor: We have a serious shortage of doctors in British Columbia and Alberta. Walk-in clinics are becoming more and more common. I think they are a very poor substitute for a family doctor, who knows his or her patient’s history and can base treatment on that knowledge and also send patients to specialist when necessary. I think the government should pay half the tuition cost, so young people can afford to become doctors – with the proviso they stay in Canada for at least five years after they are trained. Phone Mark Strahl’s office at 1-604-847-9711 to voice your concerns. He is the federal representative for this area.

You can also go to FraserNicola MLA Jackie Tegart’s office on Railway Avenue between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on week days. Her office phone number is 250-453-9726.

Let these people know how you feel. Remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Grad ceremony enjoyed To the editor: My wife and I had the privilege of attending the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School’s Cap and Gown Graduation Ceremony at the arena, May 30. I am a retired teacher and principal, and have been involved in numerous grad ceremonies over the years as a guest, a grad sponsor, or as a master of ceremonies. Last Friday’s ceremony ranks as one of the best, if not the best, I have witnessed. Thanks to principal Vic Brett, his staff, parents, and all the volunteers for their hard work and for a wonderful evening.

he B.C. Liberal government’s bill to divide the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) into two zones has passed, after one of the nastier exchanges I’ve seen in a decade covering the British Columbia legislature. “You’re all a bunch of corrupt liars,” NDP agriculture critic Nicholas Simons yelled as the government cut off a long and mostly repetitious debate that dominated the final days of the legislature session. Not to be outdone, cabinet minister Bill Bennett replied to Simons’ heckle about Kootenay rancher Faye Street, one of Bennett’s most vocal supporters as he pushed through changes to the land reserve to ease land-use restrictions in rural zones. Bennett advised Simons to offer his remarks to Street in person. “She’ll kick your [butt],” Bennett said. The on-the-record debate wasn’t much better.

put aside his partisan talking points and gave his personal assurance the government’s intention is to support farming in those places where non-farm income is the only thing that keeps people on the land. As soon as the theatrics had died down, the B.C. NDP sent out a fundraising plea to its members to help “save” the ALR. The party is broke and desperate after losing its fourth straight election, and it hopes to activate its declining donor base by portraying the changes as the imminent slaughter of its most sacred cow. Voters have three years before the next election to assess this situation. If there is a flood of exclusions of prime agricultural land, then the NDP will be able to make its case that its warnings were at least partially true. If this does not take place, then the government’s position will be vindicated. We’ll find out the truth. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

the province Teck lays off 10 at Highland Valley Copper KAMLOOPS - Highland Valley Copper will shed 10 jobs as part of Teck Resources Ltd.’s five per cent reduction in its workforce. The positions are all non-union. Company-wide, Teck will cut 600 positions. Corporate spokesman Chris Stannell told KTW on Friday, May 30, the cuts are in response to sagging commodity prices. Richard Boyce, president of Steelworkers Local 7619, called the job loss “kind of peculiar. “Copper isn’t in the doldrums,” he said. “Highland Valley Copper is doing quite well.” Boyce said his understanding is job losses are connected to an engineer, a trainer, in health and safety and the head of mine payroll. At the close of trading on Thursday, May 29, the most actively traded copper contract, for July delivery, fell 2.90 cents to settle at $3.14 per pound on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Nude beachgoers bummed out by closure PENTICTON - Sun-seekers who frequent Penticton’s only nude beach have been forced to cover up, after the property owner hired a security guard and installed No Trespassing signs to keep people away. Dustin Wolchina, who spoke to reporters May 28 on behalf of beachgoers, said access to the clothingoptional portion of Three Mile Beach was cut off earlier this week after someone caused problems while the property owner was showing the site to a potential buyer. The troublemaker is not a regular beach user, Wolchina added. “Everybody is friendly. It’s a good, large community. Everybody talks to everybody, and we’ve never had any real problems with anything, other than a few people causing the odd little tiff here and there over a spot or stuff like that,” he said. Now his group, which he says has maintained and improved the beach area for decades, is without a place to enjoy the sun in their birthday suits. The owner has worked with beach users since 2007, Chamberlain noted, but has grown worried about liability issues.

Yes. We live on Bridge Creek where the water level is very high. It is higher than I have seen it in my 23 years of living here.

We haven’t had any trouble. No high water to speak of, but it’s pretty wet, after we had an inch of hail and a downpour of rain.

I’ve been on my 10-acre lot for eight years and this is the first time I’ve had rain on the back property. It’s still running in (June 2). But, it’s not really a problem for me.

No. I’m in the 108. We were away for the heavy rains, but I noticed all the water in the fields when we returned.

RCMP have a busy day on May 30


report 100 Mile House RCMP members dealt with 79 calls for service during the past week. In and out of ditch Sometime in the early morning hours of May 30, a bulk chip truck

hauling two trailers had an incident on Highway 97 near Wright Station Road. The truck went off road to the right but was able to recover before going down an embankment. The trailers, however, continued into the ditch and then vaulted back up on the road after hitting a culvert. The driver did not

remain at the scene and police are continuing their investigation. Refused sample Around noon on May 30, a responsible driver provided very good details of a vehicle that was being driven erratically on Highway 97 near 108 Mile Hill. It was reported that a small purple truck with

a white canopy and a yellow canoe on top was swerving and driving inattentively, with the driver being possibly impaired. RCMP officers attended and determined there was evidence that the 51-year-old driver from Cochrane, Alberta had consumed alcohol. He refused to provide a roadside breath


demand and was subsequently issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and his vehicle was impounded. Serious injuries Around 8:39 p.m. on May 30, 100 Mile House RCMP responded to a report of a serious motor-vehicle incident Continued on A12

Hitchhiker assaulted on Highway 97 On May 29, between the hours of 4 and 5 p.m., a male was hitchhiking south on Highway 97 approximately 20 miles south of Williams Lake. A vehicle described as a late 1980s Ford pickup truck, which was two tone green and blue in colour stopped. The male victim approached the vehicle to get inside. The male suspect – described as being Caucasian, 25‐35 years old, with blond hair – exited the passenger side of the vehicle. The suspect approached the victim and punched him in the face causing dental damage, as well as a fall on the pavement causing further injury. The suspect then returned to the vehicle where it fled from

the scene. The victim’s personal belongings were placed in the vehicle prior to the assault and the assailants fled the scene with these items. The victim reported the incident the next day when travelling through 100 Mile House. He was taken to 100 Mile District General Hospital by ambulance and was subsequently released. The attack on the male hitchhiker was unprovoked and for no apparent reason. Police are seeking witnesses or anyone with information on this event, as at this time, the suspects and owner of the vehicle are not known. Anyone with information about this incident are asked to call the 100 Mile House

RCMP at 250-395‐2456, or if you have information about this or any other crime or you know the identity of the person or persons responsible for this, or any other crime, Crime Stoppers would like to hear from you. Kamloops and

Missing plates A total of seven calls were related to lost or missing plates, usually off of trailers, especially boat or utility trailers. It is not uncommon for the mounting brackets for these plates to be damaged or rusted, which may lead to the plate being lost while driving down the road.

Jack Fellner retires

By Dennis Tupman Jack Fellner, current director of the 100 Mile House Community Band, will be leading his final concert in Martin Exeter Hall on June 8 at 2 p.m. Admission is by donation with excess funds after expenses being given to the South Cariboo Health Foundation. The 100 Mile Community Band is made up of people from all walks of life and includes several who have not played in a band before. There are also a few young players from the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School band who are also gaining more experience – some even in conducting the ensemble. Jack has been with the community band for several years as its director. He has patiently developed this group from playing only very elementary selections to tackling more sophisticated concert and jazz band repertoire. For a number of years under his leadership, the band has given many benefit concerts in the

community. Jack has deep cultural roots in German Lutheran musical culture, which he inherited from his grandparents. This background led him to studying theology along with his music. He was born in Iowa, known for its bands, and subsequently worked and studied in Iowa, Nebraska and Mississippi to California. He grew up in Davenport, Mississippi and took post-secondary courses for nine years, studying theology and a variety of other disciplines, and, of course, always music. Along the way, he trained to become a Lutheran pastor, a position he held for a number of years. Over the years, he was a church pastor, youth pastor, a junior high school music teacher, a musical instrument repairman, a music store owner and partner, a professional saxophonist, music store operator, and other related activities. One of his many passions was playing saxophone in a number of big bands, featuring

the jazz big band music of Benny Goodman, Count Basie, and Glenn Miller, and many more. He moved to Calgary where he taught school and operated a music recording business, among other interests. Jack’s first wife, Charlotte, passed away a number of years ago. Their two daughters, Deborah and Val (and her husband, Steve) are also appearing in this concert with the band.

Jack decided to join Deborah, in 100 Mile House, and soon met someone who was to become his new wife, Jean, on the Internet. Jack Fellner has, in a short time, made a big contribution to the cultural life of our little community. He has been involved in making music for more than 80 years. Dennis Tupman is a well-known musician in the South Cariboo.

here was no butter chicken before this fight. And it wasn’t “Coach Huber” in the ring, either. It was Ken “Heavy Hands” Huber in there, and the Kamloops cruiserweight, by way of 100 Mile House, landed them just – just – enough for a split-decision win over Victoria boxer Bryan Colwell, retaining his provincial Combsport title. It was a story of halves and a fight which could have went either way in the co-main event of the World Boxing Council’s (WBC) Western Canadian Amateur Championships, hosted by the the MadKatz Boxing Club and held in a steamy Rutland Centennial Hall in Kelowna on May 31. Where Colwell was great early on – using his arm-length advantage and jabbing, and outboxing Huber considerably in the first and second rounds – Huber got more dangerous as the fight progressed, persistently stalked his opponent around the ring, and touched him with big shots in the later rounds. And what’s a boxing match without a bit of controversy or drama? Huber, 30, hit Colwell below the belt in the second round. Colwell, 24, took the full five minutes allotted to him to recover. No one could blame him for it. It was a hard shot, and deemed accidental. While he was down, Huber paced anxiously in a neutral corner, then busted a set of push-ups on the canvas. That was Heavy Hands getting the crowd going, explains Huber, who’s admittedly a slow starter.


HORSE SERIES Gaven Crites photos

Ken Huber, a Kamloops boxer who grew up in 100 Mile House, successfully defended his Combsport British Columbia Cruiserweight title against Bryan Colwell, left, of Victoria in Kelowna on May 31.

“I need to take a few punches and get in the groove. I want to be an exciting fighter. I want to make exciting fights... Love me or hate me, you’ll know who I am.” The fight was close heading into the fifth and final round, and neither boxer could afford to take it off or let up. Unfortunately for the younger Colwell, it was his first time going past three rounds. Huber had been there before. And in the lead up to the fight he talked a lot about how hard he trained for it. (Colwell won via splitdecision in a three-round, non-title fight against Huber in March. For his part, Huber, who operates the Kamloops Boxing Academy, says he wasn’t at his best that night, mentally or physically. He says he took the fight on a week’s notice, ate too much before it, and was in the corner as a coach for his fighters on the same card before stepping into the ring himself.) That extra conditioning was the difference in the rematch. Huber pinned Colwell in the corner in the final minute and ripped him with big shots. The exclamation mark: a hard Huber right sent the challenger’s mouthpiece to the canvas. The referee stepped in – some in the building thought it was over – but the fight continued after Colwell got his mouthpiece back in and survived as the final seconds ticked off. When the last bell clanged, Huber got down for more push ups. He says he knew he had the decision. But not everyone did.

“I thought we won the fight,” says Colwell’s coach Jason Heit. “I thought for sure, clearly Bryan Colwell won the first round, the second round and the third round.” Heit concedes rounds four and five went to Huber. Heit says he thinks the low blow in the second was intentional, and Huber should have lost a point for it. “I would love to see the punch stats in this fight. I bet you it’s two to one in Bryan Colwell’s favour,” Heit goes on to say just after the bout, where Colwell, still visibly upset with the decision, is pulling his gear off while letting expletives fly like his hands in the early rounds. “I respect Ken as a person and as a fighter,” adds Heit, a mixed martial arts fighter himself and instructor at Island MMA. “I like him. But, fights are fights. You win some, you lose some. Some you think you won, and you didn’t. That’s just how it goes. Anything that’s judged can be difficult.” Huber, who’s also the current WBC Western Canadian Cruiserweight champ and WBC Canadian Cruiserweight champ, says he wants to turn pro after a national championship fight in Ontario in October. Huber and Colwell spoke briefly in the fighters’ warm-up area after their bout. “I told him to go back to the gym,” explains Huber. “Get training. Get working again. Let’s do it again. Let’s have a rubber match. He’s a young, hard-working up and comer. I have a lot of respect for him.” Still, Huber adds: “I think I’ve definitely proved who’s number one.” Asked if he had anything else to add at the end of a post-fight interview, Huber’s voice cracked. He thanked his team, sparring partners, friends, family, everybody. And the tears came. It hit him – he’s still the champ.

Results are in the from the 100 Mile & District Outriders Gymkhana on May 25. Kassidy Kolisnyk was first place and Rogan Day was second in peewees.

Golden gloves, silver sluggers

100 Mile House was in control at the 18th Annual May Mayhem tournament hosted by the Richmond Boys Fastball Association on May 24-25. All three 100 Mile N' Hour teams – peewees, squirts and mites – brought back shiny hardware. On May 24, the peewee squad lit up Cloverdale for an 11-1 win, before dropping a game to Richmond 10-7. On May 25, 100 Mile N' Hour beat Sooke 11-1; North Surrey 12-1 and Cloverdale again 10-1. The gold-medal game was a rematch against Richmond. This time, 100 Mile House won 14-9. Tournament MVPs went to Trevor McMahon, Mitchell Hooper, Logan Parent and Tristen Tikats. In the squirts division, 100 Mile N' Hour beat Sooke 17-0 in four innings on May 24. The team started with a good lead in the first inning with a home run from Marshall Tessaro, which brought in three runs. MVP for Game 1 went to Ethan Sanders.

South Cariboo riders wheel in points Brad Perron was back on the track in Prince George on May 24-25 after an injury the week before. In a field of 17 riders, the Lac la Hache racer finished fifth overall in Junior MX-2 on May 25. In Junior MX-3 that day, Perron rode to a second place overall in a field of 11. In a field of 19 riders on May 24 in Prince George in Junior MX-2, Perron finished fifth overall. In Junior MX-3, Perron raced to fourth

out of 12. In Quesnel on May 17, Lac la Hache's Connor Szatmari raced to two first place finishes in the 50cc, four to six age division. Szatmari did the same thing on May 18, and won first overall. Brad Inglis of 108 Mile Ranch also crossed the line first in Quesnel. He finished first overall in Vet Master on May 18. Perron hit the track as well. He injured his shoulder in the second

moto of a Junior MX-3 race. He finished fourth overall in that category, and did not race on May 18 because of the injury. In Schoolboy on May 17, Perron finished seventh overall. In Junior MX-2 he finished fifth after two motos. The riders accumulate points at different events throughout the season – the 2014 Prince George Yamaha/British Columbia Motocross Association Motocross Championship Series.

U14 girls get win

Cariboo Youth Soccer League play was underway in 100 Mile House on May 25. The 100 Mile House Storm – a U14 girls' team – hosted Williams Lake and Quesnel. The Storm had a rocky start against Williams Lake, and had to climb back from a small deficit, coach Hilary Gosnell explains. “Williams Lake took a 1-0 lead early in the first half, but with excellent passing and teamwork, 100 Mile brought the ball back up the field to level the score.” The second half saw even more exciting plays, Gosnell adds. “[Goalie] Alison Carr faced a couple of penal-

ty shots, while 100 Mile midfielders showed excellent control and leadership and started some great team rushes that were followed up by our fast-paced forwards.” Sydni Poggenpohl netted two goals and Ashley Holyk netted one in the 3-2 win for 100 Mile House. Heather Heales took the net for the first half of a game against Quesnel later that after-

noon, which proved to be the Storm's toughest league competition so far this season, Gosnell says. “[Heales] did an amazing job keeping the score down. The game was an uphill battle, however, and the girls never found the intensity and teamwork that led them to their morning win.” Ashley Holyk scored for 100 Mile House in the 4-1 loss.

Living a life tied up outside, regardless of weather, isn't a healthy or happy existence for dogs. Dogs who are left outdoors for the majority of their lives - in a backyard, pen, on a balcony, loose on property or tethered on a chain or rope – are at risk for physical harm, neglect, behavioural issues, health problems, and the guardians could face liability issues. The SPCA has created new education resources to encourage guardians to bring their outdoor dogs inside and be a part of the family at VIEW ANIMALS AT:

Large bingo pot won in Lac la Hache LAC LA HACHE Monika Paterson 250 395-0918

Clinton resident Dina Connon was the lucky winner of the Lac la Hache Community Club’s bingo progressive pot on May 21.

She won $3,000 on the 56th number called – just one number before the cutoff of 57. The next progressive pot started at 49 numbers on May 28, with a starting amount of $1,200. The community club is always looking for volunteers to help out at bingo once in a while. Contact Barb Hansen at 250-396-7567 if you can lend a hand. Coffee house The next Community

Coffee House music event is on June 6 at the Lac la Hache Pioneer Centre. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with entertainment going from 7 to 9 p.m. Organizer Pastor Bruce Wilcox says there has been an amazing response to this evening of local musicians playing and singing a mix of bluegrass, gospel, folk and country tunes. There could also be some poetry reading.

Spring Carnival a fun funding success A Spring Carnival organized by the 100 Mile House Elementary School Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) to raise funds for a new playground brought in between $3,000 and $3,500, while organizers continue to crunch the exact numbers from the May 23 event. The Spring Carnival at the school saw dozens of children playing a variety of games and went a long way to raising the $5,000 needed to purchase a new piece of playground equipment to replace an existing one slated for removal there in the near future. “It’s a pretty important playground,” PAC spokesperson Denise Balbirnie said before the event. “It would be pretty devastating if we lost it and didn’t have any-

thing to replace it with.” She added the day went better than expected and the PAC is “excited” about the amount of money raised. “It really would not have been possible to pull this together

without a full band of volunteers, and the generous donations from local businesses of items for the silent auction.” She noted the parent group hopes to raise the remaining $1,500 or so by the end of the school year

Human rights focus of event

Upwards of 20 socially conscious acts are taking the stage at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School’s annual Amnesty Concert on June 11. The concert starts at 9 a.m. and features a variety of performances with basic human rights, such as freedom of speech and the right to education, as a theme. Alisha Beyer is a Grade 11 student and a member of an Amnesty International group at PSO. “Human rights is a big thing for me,” she says. “Especially the right to education. “We take it for granted, but some people don’t have the opportunity to go to school.” The event is open to the public and preceded by a grand-opening of the

local secondary school’s renovated gymnasium. Members of the public are asked to bring canned food or cash donations. Amnesty International is a nongovernmental organization focused on human rights with millions of members worldwide. Jessa Paddison is singing a Dixie Chicks song at the concert. She says she joined the PSO Amnesty International group because she was tired of people, such as women and people of colour, around the world being treated in ways they don’t deserve. “We’re so lucky to live here. I feel we’re taking it for granted. Even just a little [awareness] will make a difference.”

There is no cost, coffee and goodies are provided free. A voluntary donation can be made and these funds go towards charity. For more information or if you would like to be part of the entertain-

ment, contact Wilcox at 250-396-4100.

By Mark McMillan June 7-8 are the dates, and Watch Lake and/ or Green Lake are the places to be if you’re a fisherman – especially if you want a chance at the $500 cash for the biggest fish. The second largest fish will get $200 cash and there are tons of other prizes, in a lot of different categories, too. Sponsors have been great again this year, which allows for these extra prizes. The categories can change year to year, but some of the past ones have been: oldest fisher, youngest fisher, furthest away, best dressed, Fibber Magee, first fish on each day from either lake, and draws for hidden weights. Winners must be present at the awards ceremony, which starts at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday to receive a prize. Derby entries and pig roast tickets are available at 70 Mile General Store, Ace High Resort, Tall Timbers Resort, and Watch Lake Lodge. Adults are $10 and

youth under 16 are $7.50. Fish can be caught in either Watch or Green lakes, but must be weighed in at the derby headquarters on Watch Lake – Watch Lake Lodge, the derby host. There is a $5 pancake breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. both days; a refreshment garden from 11a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday; and a concession from 11a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 11a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday. Saturday night is the Pig Roast – definitely an annual favourite – a spit-roasted pig with all the trimmings. Tickets are $15 for adults and children under 10 are $7.50. The Watch Lake Green Lake Business Association has made this one of the best and most fun fishing derbies in the country for 27 consecutive years. For more information, call 250-456-7741. Mark McMillan is a spokesperson for the Watch Lake Green Lake Business Association.

School news Staff and students are happy with the return of their principal Steve Carpenter after his injury earlier this year.

hespian groups from 100 Mile House and Williams Lake want to take some of the “mystery” out of theatre with an upcoming workshop, and they’re hoping anyone curious about acting or directing joins in the process. For those maybe a bit shy of revealing their true dramatic chops, don’t worry. The 100 Mile Performing Arts Society is all about laughing with you, not at you, says its current president Renee LaRochelle. “We are inclusive and we want new people to come play in the sandbox with us. It’s not this overwhelming, daunting, ‘click’ little group.” The “A Play in a Day” theatre workshop is on June 14 and it is a first in 100 Mile House. It promises to be a lot of laughs, and it’s something the Williams Lake Studio Theatre Society has done in the past to engage new members. “It’s a safe venue to try [acting or directing] with no judgement,” LaRochelle explains. “When you present your craft at the end of the day, there’s no critiquing.” It starts at 10 a.m. at Martin Exeter Hall. Pre-registration is required by June 7, with a maximum of 50 people. It’s $20 per person, which includes a dinner, and is for anyone 14 years old and over. Registration forms are available at, the Parkside Art Gallery and the South Cariboo Visitor Centre in 100 Mile House. The 100 Mile Performing Arts

Mike Thain and Renee LaRochelle shared a scene in the 100 Mile Performing Arts Society production of Office Hours at Martin Exeter Hall in October.

Society held a directing workshop – “The A.B.C.’s of Directing” – in the beginning of May. The workshops are a “new direction” for the group and all about “trying to encourage some of the closet actors and closet directors to come out,” says LaRochelle. “It’s absolutely a new direction we’re going in.

About 15 of the participants had travelled to our community from Kamloops to attend. By the end of the morning, the hall was filled with a wide variety of creative arrangements. The class was followed by lunch in the hall and door prizes were awarded. Tanya Richards was the recipient of a hanging basket and Donna Thiessen won a beautiful handmade tea towel.

Abstract work on display Two Quesnel artists partner for show at Parkside Art Gallery

Gaven Crites Free Press

The work of Quesnel painters Christa Krisman and Megan Long is on display at Parkside Art Gallery until June 24. The pair of Cariboo artists first met at an acrylic painting workshop about four years ago. Now, they’re collaborating for a show in 100 Mile House called Reveries, which features abstract acrylic paintings. Long was born and raised in the Cariboo. Parkside visitors might be familiar with her work, as she was part of an abstract group show there last summer. “It was actually a great a show,” Long says. “There were a lot of different artists. It’s nice to go out of town

and see what other people are doing ... it’s nice to see something different.” Krisman was born in Germany and moved to Canada 14 years ago. She retired in 2009 after operating her own business for almost 30 years, according to an artist bio provided by the local gallery. “Travelling in Europe for many years, but also my life in B.C. is a great source of inspiration to feed my visions. My paintings are telling stories about my life; they involve my emotions and a lot of imagery to create abstract delights in bold vibrant colours. “I am teaching abstract painting classes and workshops and I am an active member of our art community.”

Long says she has 13 paintings hanging in 100 Mile House. She calls them “sort of stylized landscapes.” “They’re basically all scenes from B.C., except for one, a hiking trail we were on in Washington. The rest of them are from B.C., the Island and the Interior. I just find, everywhere you go in the province, there’s something beautiful to look at and inspire you to paint.” Reveries is a reference to daydreaming, Long adds. “It’s looking back to places I’ve been, and places I’ve yet to go to.” Coming up at Parkside Art Gallery is a show by Neil Pinkett from June 27 to July 19, and a Cariboo Artists’ Guild annual show from July 25 to Sept 6.

The young students participated in many different forms of dance, with ages varying from the very young to teenagers. Their costumes were fantastic, which helped in exhibiting each gymnast’s routine. The parents showed great admiration when a family’s daughter or friend was on the floor doing their special dance routine. The group received more than $850 in donations.

Should I fix my roof system myself? Most work should not be done yourself. Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and and efficiently repair or replace roof systems. You can damage your roof system by using improper roofing techniques and severely injure yourself by falling off or through the roof. Maintenance performed by home and building owners should be confined to inspecting roof systems during the fall and spring to check for cracked or curling shingles and cleaning gutters filed with dead leaves and other debris. If you must inspect your roof system yourself, use a firmly braced or tied-off ladder equipped with rubber safety feet. Wear rubber-soled shoes and stay on the ladder (and off the roof system), if possible.

How long can I expect my roof system to last?

Total Living Area: 2384 sq. ft. Bedrooms: 4 Bathrooms: 2.5

Most new roof systems are designed to provide useful service for about 20 years. Some roof system types, such

as slate, clay tile and certain metal (e.g. copper) systems can last longer. Actual roof system life span is determined by a number of factors, including local climatic and environmental conditions, proper building and roof system design, material quality and suitability, proper application and adequate roof maintenance Roofing product manufacturers offer a variety of warranties on their products. Take a close look at these warranties to see what responsibilities and financial obligations manufacturers will assume if their products fail to reach their expected lives.

How much will a new roof system cost? The price of a new system varies widely, depending on materials used, contractor doing the work,location, local labour rates and the time of year. Get three or four quotes from reputable contractors in you area. Keep in mind that price is only one factor, and it must be balanced with the quality of materials and workmanship.

Quality and cost conscious classic car restoration is the key


The secret to controlling the work is to perform all of the tasks in-house with perhaps the exception of chrome plating.


Nigel Matthews

Our classic and collector car expert continues today with the second part of his four-part series on the restoration of public relations executive Laura Ballance’s rare 1967 Ford Mustang T5 by 360 Fabrication in Abbotsford. The restoration business has changed a great deal – in the past, most auto body repair shops would only take on such work when their collision work dried up. Now it’s very specialist work and I’m often asked if I could recommend a restoration shop. To be honest with you, I would be hard pressed to come up with enough names to fill the fingers of one hand.

But I have no hesitation in saying that I doubt there is one in the entire country that restores and builds as many custom cars as 360 Fabrication, in Abbotsford. They control the costs and track the daily progress by using a number of management systems and a Gantt chart. The secret to controlling the work is to perform all of the tasks in-house with perhaps the exception of chrome plating. During my time in the trade, costs kept mounting up and either the customer or the technician, who worked on a flat rate (piecework) basis, was short changed resulting in ill feelings between the shop owner, his staff and the customer mainly caused by the lack of communication and too many assumptions!

Laura Ballance’s original plan was to have a sympathetic restoration performed, replacing only what was necessary. But cars are no different from houses, boats and planes, so when the Mustang was disassembled and stripped they discovered that probably the only thing holding the car together was Laura’s father’s DIY welding! The Mustang is a relatively easy car to restore in terms of obtaining new parts. In this case, by the time the air chisel and plasma cutter was put away the only major sheet metal components left was the roof, “A” pillars, rocker-panels, bulkhead and the two front frame rails and the rear section of the floor. I have heard the expression “better than new” a few times over the years

and have often wondered how can it be better than new? But it can. Today’s restorations have improved with the help of new technology such as compression fit welding equipment, seam sealers and paint products including epoxy primers, spray on polyester fillers and the waterborne color coats with a clear coat finish. These products are far superior to anything that came off the production line during the ‘60s. Rick Francoeur and his team at 360 always allow the customer to be in control and understand customer needs and expectations, even down to the smallest sentimental detail. However, sometimes they have to advise the client for their own benefit, sometimes

financial, safety related or future re-sale value. Laura wanted the Mustang refinished it its metallic blue, all the rage during the ‘60s and the car she remembers. But if the car is to retain its value and to represent how it came off the production line as a rare T5, it had to be painted its original Ford Paint Code Z, an interesting colour called Sauterne Gold Irid. This colour combined with a black interior and vinyl roof will make the car a real eye catcher. Next week we will look into

the mechanical component restoration and exterior trim replacement. Nigel Matthews is the
