Rotating strikes continue this week while votes are still being counted today (June 11) toward a new, full-scale strike vote. After pay cuts and a partial lockout of public teachers was upheld by the province’s Labour Relations Board (RB), the BCTF held another vote June 9-10 to see if the membership is in favour of a potential Stage 3 strike action. The province cut teachers’ pay 10 per cent in retaliation for rotating strikes and their refusal to perform certain duties outside of the classroom. If approved by the vote, BCTF president Jim Iker says there will likely be a full-scale strike within the next week (but no sooner than June 16). However, Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Association president Murray Helmer says there are other potential outcomes.

“It could also mean additional rotational strikes. It is anything that falls outside of the Stage 2 accepted by the LRB – anything that was more than a single day a week had to be revisited [by vote].” Noting teachers began seeing their pay docked in May, he says deepening the cuts to 10 per cent when they already lose wages for strike days is “a double hit.” “It is open for the BCTF to seek an arbitrator to rule whether that 10 per cent is appropriate or not ... all the LRB did was say that ‘yes, it is possible for the employer to deduct your pay’. “We probably need to have that looked at because we have teachers in 100 Mile House who never have stopped supervising students and who have done very little out of the disruption that this is supposed to justify this.” That south-end supervision happened because administrators are not required to travel more than 45

minutes to fill this gap, so teachers were obligated to continue the service to ensure the students’ safety, Helmer explains. He notes the collective agreement covers each year’s term of service without assigning any timing to it, so some teachers have fulfilled their turn at duties, such as supervision long before now. “There is nothing in our contract that says that on any of these specific days we will do these tasks, so that’s why people are finding the ruling unfair. It’s definitely a disappointing outcome. “And, the rest of the LRB ruling upheld the lockout – that teachers can only be on school grounds up to 45 minutes [before and after school times]. “So, things [like field trips] that have been cancelled are due to the lockout, not due to our job action.” Unless a sudden resolution comes through soon, this recent action

by government leaves “no physical possibility” teachers can complete report cards in the manner to which parents have become accustomed, Helmer says. “It will be an abbreviated report card because ... we have to do our planning and our marking in that short [ninety-minute] window.” In School District #27, rotating strikes this week will occur June 12 with picket lines once again set up at area schools, leaving students to their own, or their parents’ devices. Meanwhile, dozens of secondary students at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School joined many others across the province in walking out of their classes on June 4. Toting signs that read “education before money,” “strike + lockout = walkout” and “education before money” at Highway 97 near Cariboo Mall, they demonstrated their dismay at the continued labour dispute between teachers and government.

Adrianna Johnson earns prestigious award Dedicated, talented local student excels in academic achievements

Carole Rooney Free Press

A

drianna Johnson won this year’s Governor General’s Award for scholastic achievement at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) in 100 Mile House. The 108 Mile Ranch graduate earned this prestigious award by maintaining a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 98.077 per cent in grades 11-12. PSO principal Vic Brett says Adrianna met an “unbelievable standard” in achieving this level of marks over two years. “We are talking very, very, very few students who can achieve that. Especially with the highly rigorous courses that Adrianna took ... she always took challenging courses.” Adrianna says she is “pretty excited” to have won the award – one of just five awarded to Canadian students outside of Calgary. “I work pretty hard. I was trying to get the top marks in my school each year.” She juggled her stringent study regime with commuting to play Major Midget AAA Rep hockey, Adrianna adds. “I felt is was a good way to keep my motivation up, because if you are always busy, the extra stress kind of makes you more determined to get everything done and on time. “My first year, I was playing in Prince George, so ... I was travelling tons, and always doing homework on

Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School teacher Edda Brett, left, and principal Vic Brett, right, congratulated 2014 graduate Adrianna Johnson on May 30. She won the Governor General’s Bronze Medal Award and a three-year scholarship to the University of Calgary by maintaining her stellar grades, as well as various other awards.

the bus and in the car – but I’m very study orientated.” Adrianna explains she was also very involved in volunteering with a peer counselling group at her school, as well as tutoring fellow students in math. She loves art, writing, fitness and, of course, hockey. At a prospects camp she attended in Calgary this spring, she was invited to the University of Calgary Dinos women’s hockey team tryouts this fall.

Vic says Adrianna is an “incredible and absolutely wonderful human being” and an “outstanding kid with a superlative social conscience beyond her age.” “She is totally well-rounded. She is a top academic, an athlete, an artist, a very accomplished writer, she’s got all kinds of empathy toward others, she is a peer tutor and she has such high moral fibre and high standards. “Adrianna’s really the

epitome of what I would call a renaissance person – she is just good at everything, and just so engaged in everything she does – and she just gets every ounce of living out of life.” Adrianna also won the esteemed three-year, allexpenses-paid Seymour Schulich Academic Excellence (SSAE) engineering entrance scholarship at the University of Calgary, where she is enrolled to study science

next fall. “That was quite an ordeal, so I had to write a lot of essays ... I applied to lots of universities. “But, just having your school paid for is a relief." This illustrious recognition also places Adrianna in a special academic community on campus. It includes membership in a leadership group as well as private dorm accommodation conducive to the dedicated studying necessary to maintain the scholarship’s GPA requirements. Locally, the studious young woman also won the Brent Harris award, Steven Meville award, and both a 100 Mile Rotary Club and a 100 Mile House Lions Club scholarship. Her plans are to go into chemical engineering, which is normally “competitive to get into,” but the SSAE award guarantees her acceptance, she explains. Thanks to her principal, a framed copy of her poem The Flame hangs in the halls at PSO as her legacy to younger students. Adrianna says she is pleased about that, and hopes it will be inspiring to the younger students at PSO to have a role model for achieving their goals. “I really like being a leader in my school.” She adds her parents and siblings have always been an “amazing support system.” Adrianna's family constantly cheers her on in her pursuit of academic excellence and the amazing career that surely awaits in her future.

Parent councils call for compromise

Carole Rooney Free Press

The BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) is calling for an immediate end to the rotating strike and lockout action they say is “disrupting schools and hurting students.” It wants the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and the B.C. Liberal government to cease the protracted labour dispute. Peter Skene Ogden (PSO) Parent Advisory Council representative Lauren Bock says her small group “totally agrees” with the recent BCCPAC statements. “I especially agree with where the BCCPAC says they ‘want government and the union to stop using pressure tactics that affect students’.

Both sides in education dispute must take a step back

“And, I like where they say ‘it’s time for both sides to take risks and negotiate in the true spirit of give and take’. Because, that is totally what I believe in.” Bock adds she can see this dispute makes it difficult for both sides to do what is best for the students, especially at the school level. “Our teachers and our administration want what is best for the kids, and they want to do whatever they can. I think the school [PSO] normally runs really well, and they all work together for the kids. “It is such a pity that this is happening now, at the end of the school year.”

The PAC mother says she can’t imagine how parents struggling with day care are managing during the rotating strikes. Noting she and her son are supposed to be going on a field trip, Bock says they don’t now know if it will happen – an inconvenient uncertainty in planning for the necessary time and supplies. “I think the most difficult thing is being in limbo. The teachers don’t know if they are going to have a full strike. That’s a horrible place for teachers, and for everyone to be.” Some students are practising for individual performances at an amnesty concert they are no longer sure will take place, she adds. “It’s sad, and once again it shows that it’s the kids who are losing out.”

Workshop invites input

Carole Rooney Free Press

The Miles Ahead project is gaining momentum in 100 Mile House, and District office will be taking resident and business input until June 17 for a local sustainability plan. Now, residents and businesspersons in and around the municipality are invited to a workshop at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on June 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. District planner Joanne Doddridge says the workshop will further narrow down key elements and input for the Miles Ahead Sustainability Plan,

100 Mile House planning session seeks resident visions which she is facilitating along with Fraser Basin Council Smart Planning for Communities program manager Joan Chess. “We are hoping to see all kinds of people will come out to this workshop – business people, seniors, other residents, and help us understand what is important to you, so we can work together to shape our community,” Doddridge says. The workshop will review public input and ideas on how to sus-

tain the community, which has gathered so far, from topics including its economy and industry to clean water and seniors’ needs, she explains. Doddridge adds the first round of feedback has been collected from in-person events at the Farmers Market and local businesses. Chess says her early analysis has identified key themes from the feedback. Amongst the top features rated by the community under a

heading of community values are “friendly, helpful people” and “thriving arts,” she notes. “The environment is also an important value to 100 Milers who enjoy ‘trees and unspoiled natural areas’ in town.” Under community vision, participants have put forward several ideas revolving around attracting young people and more physicians, while keeping youth and families in the community, she notes. Chess adds economic development

This father’s day is never done

Carole Rooney Free Press

Tom McIntosh is a busy father who takes a keen interest in his family. Between his five children under the age of 12 and the large and popular Lake Of The Trees Bible Camp he’s operated for 13 years, Tom is kept hopping. While he works long hours all summer, Tom is a hands-on-dad who has birth-coached his wife of 15 years, Jody, through all five deliveries, changed thousands of diapers and voiced uncountable bedtime prayers. When their first three children were all in diapers at once, those were “very full days,” he notes. From handling middle-of-the-night emergencies and handing out hugs to making big family breakfasts and crafting home-made cards with the children on Jody’s special days, Tom aptly juggles his responsibilities to help their household run smoothly. “As a father, it was a good process for me to learn – that to find myself is to give myself away, and to be fulfilled is to serve my kids.” Tom says he and Jody took turns to get up in the night at times when the babies were young. “I think that helped, to try to participate as best I could in that depending on the time of year.” During camp season, family dinners involve sharing a communal evening meal with the campers and staff in the dining hall, where his children take turns in the cleanup. However, in between and off-season, Tom ensures meals are spent together with the whole family enjoying each others’ company. He says their family meals don’t see children grabbing a bite on the run, bringing a plateful to their room or parked in front of the T.V. Tom explains playtimes often include a favourite activity – wrestling with dad. He adds this includes some spe-

The McIntosh family – Vicki, left, Twila, Jonathan, Carter on Jody’s lap, and Lochlan on Tom’s lap – enjoyed their first kayak trip across Lake Of The Trees on June 1. They enjoy many activities together, and will celebrate Father’s Day with a big breakfast at a decorated table.

cial moves in wrangling with Jonathan, 11, Twila, 10, Vicki, 9, Lochlan, 6, and Carter, 3, such as “pancakes” – flipping them side-over-side on the couch. “I have this big ‘airplane’ trick, which they love, where I’m on my back on the floor, and they are up on my hands ... up in the air like they’re flying an airplane, going through turbulence.” Tom explains wrestling night is their “love language” for a bonding experience. “I found myself bonding with them when I did change diapers, or when I’m giving them “tubbies” [baths] or getting up in the middle of the night to help them go back to sleep if they had a bad dream, or whatever.” When their third child, Vicki, was born during the busy summer

camp season in 2004, Jody became very ill, Tom explains. “Camp season is tiring as it is, and here I am at 3 a.m., my wife is reacting to penicillin and I’m loading up three little ones to race her to the hospital.” On June 1, the whole family kayaked across the lake together with the youngest two on their parent’s laps, he notes. “That was the first of the season. On a nice sunny evening, to see

my kids developing their kayaking skills, it was a real joy.” Another favourite family activity is gathering together around a campfire. “That’s something I really enjoy with them, and they love the beach time.” The children enjoy their time in camp also, and their father is never far away if they need a hug or a serious talk. “I enjoy my bedtime prayers with them, and expressing my love for

Café step to improving lifestyles

From A4

In 2013, the SCCPC supported an agefriendly community assessment – funded by the first $20,000 AFCPP grant – to determine the strengths and challenges of aging in the South Cariboo. The research identified several untapped resources and people with skills, knowledge, time and the desire to improve the lives of seniors living in our community, says Councillor Ralph Fossum. By sharing information, building connections, identifying resources, forming working relationships and expanding partnerships, strategies will be developed to strengthen

PARKING LOT WARS

There are typically three kinds of moving objects in a parking lot: pedestrians, shopping carts and vehicles. Vehicles tend to move at relatively low speeds and, as a result, accidents involving only vehicles tend to be relatively minor. Pedestrians also move at relatively slow speeds but collisions between pedestrians and motor vehicles can have relatively serious consequences for pedestrians. On August 21, 2008, Lenord Russell was walking through the parking lot of a mall in Cranbrook when Mr. Parks’ vehicle struck him. Prior to this accident, Mr. Russell was able to exercise and, in fact, played hockey. After the accident, Mr. Russell found it difficult to do any kind of exercise because of the extent of the injury to his knee. In fact, he spent several months in a wheelchair after the accident. The trial court judge found that it was very significant that Mr. Russell was looking downwards as he stepped over a concrete barrier and into the path of Mr. Parks’ vehicle. At the trial, the judge found that the pedestrian was two thirds responsible for the accident. Mr. Russell appealed to the BC Court of Appeal. The Appeal Court noted that a driver has a duty “to exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian on a highway.” (Under our Motor Vehicle Act, a parking lot falls within the definition of “highway.”) Did Mr. Parks exercise due care? In fact, when his vehicle struck Mr. Russell, Mr. Parks was looking away - doing a shoulder check. The court held that he could have stopped and avoided the accident had he been keeping a proper lookout. On that basis, the Court of Appeal found Mr. Parks to be 75% responsible. The moral of the story seems to be that drivers must be extremely careful in parking lots and that pedestrians in such circumstances will be forgiven, to a certain extent, their own inattention.

Why a social policy framework?

T

he economic and social world of British Columbia has shifted. As a result, many of our neighbours are struggling. As problems become more complex, government alone cannot provide solutions. So what to do? Board Voice Society of BC (www.boardvoice. ca), a network of almost 800 volunteer directors of community social service organizations, is talking with boards of trade, chambers of commerce, local governments, government ministers and opposition members about an approach to engage citizens of B.C. in discussions to help create a social policy framework to guide decisions about social policies and programs. Why Board Voice? As directors, we join boards to make a difference in our communities. We see the struggles faced by many British Columbians – increased food bank usage, people with disabilities without

GUEST SHOT

munity. An Age-friendly BC Planning Café will be held in the Valley Room (behind the Red Coach Inn) in 100 Mile House on June 24 from 10 a.m. to noon. Anyone who wants to help provide a better lifestyle for seniors in the South Cariboo is urged to attend. Last year, we received a $20,000 from the Age-friendly Community Planning and Project Grant program. The money was used to carry out an assessment of the strengths and challenges of aging in the South Cariboo. The research identified several untapped resources and wealth of people with the skills, knowledge and the desire to make the seniors’ lifestyles better. Fifty people attended the first Age-friendly Community Café on May 8, 2013, and pinpointed communication systems; relationships with seniors in the community and across the ages; how to keep active as key issues. The one issue that came up in every table’s conversation was transportation. Since then District of 100 Mile House Councillor Ralph Fossum and newly appointed Age-friendly community co-ordinator Lea Smirfitt have talked to a lot of seniors who are willing and able to move forward as leaders of the age-friendly initiative. Another $20,000 grant has been received to help the South Cariboo become more age-friendly. The goal for this next stage of the initiative is setting up working committees that will brainstorm and research specific challenges that were identified at the first café and provide suggestions on possible solutions. Folks who attend the June 24 café will be asked to choose an area of interest that they would be willing to put some time and resources into. They include communication, food and nutrition, active living, housing and supported living, education and awareness, health care, advocacy and transportation. Some of the solutions could be costly and, therefore, take a long time to put in place. Transportation for seniors would fit into this category if people were considering a shuttle bus service to and from the rural areas. However, a volunteer, family-friends-and-neighbours service would serve the purpose if it was organized properly. It would involve a broad-based communication system to get the word out and link the folks who need a ride to and from 100 Mile House to the folks who could offer rides. It would be worth investigating and, possibly, solve the No. 1 concern. It would be a Cariboo solution, and it’s already working on a smaller scale now.

that brings people together, or being stuck in an approach that claims turf and pushes people apart, experience social challenges. All communities can benefit from a road map for healthy people in a thriving and vibrant province. Government plays a leadership role in engaging citizens to create collective solutions to the complex challenges facing British Columbians. The province of B.C. already has an Internet portal and conducts community conversations to engage citizens around specific issues. By answering a call to action to engage British Columbians in conversations about what a social system that serves not only vulnerable British Columbians but also serves all citizens, the government of B.C. has an opportunity to develop a social policy that goes along with an economic policy and lays a foundation for a system that produces results. Leslie Welin is the vice-chair Board Voice Society of BC.

Opinion

Courts have hijacked our justice system To the editor: Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s pre-occupation with the Supreme Court is easily justified. The current justice system was created as an integral part of a 1982 federal statute called the Constitution Act of Canada that arbitrarily was adopted by a handful of politicians and shoved down our throats. A justice system is rooted in a Constitution, and a statute is not a Constitution.

Our Constitution is about as phony as a Canadian three dollar bill. Harper understands that intimately, and instead of picking a fight with the Supreme Court, he should initiate the process of bringing resolution to this issue. Harper has had ample opportunity to make the changes to the Supreme Court he may have wanted. He wrote the Blue Book, the policy manual for the Reform Party of Canada, and was a vocal advocate

for reforming our justice system. He knows what is wrong with the system: • Over the years, it has evolved into a legal system where lawyers waste the court’s time and taxpayers’ money arguing points of law. • The judges are appointed by the prime minister of the day, not elected, and they are accountable to absolutely nobody. • The courts have hijacked the justice system, and instead of enforcing the laws written by the

Tired of being gouged for gas To the editor: So, at the time of writing this letter the price of regular gas in Cache Creek was $1.29/litre, $0.12/ litre less than 100 Mile House. That's right, Cache Creek, that small community south of us notorious for high gas prices. The price in Williams Lake was $1.36/litre or $0.05/litre less than 100 Mile. I refuse to be gouged by local gas retailers anymore. Consequently, we have been driving to Williams Lake to put fuel in our vehicle. While in Williams Lake buying gas, we also stop into one of the grocery stores to purchase our weekly food supplies. Then, we often go to one of the big box stores to

see what they have on sale, often buying something or another. All this shopping gets one hungry so lunch is in order at one of the local restaurants. Amazing but we see many friends and neighbours in Williams Lake doing the same thing. So, to avoid getting gouged by the gas retailers in 100 Mile, we often spend $200$300 out of town – money not being spent “at home.” I no longer feel bad doing this. The ones who should feel bad are the local gas retailers. Their artificially high fuel prices have so infuriated residents like myself that many are refusing to buy their product and now buy their gasoline and other items in communities such as Williams Lake and/or Kamloops. I am not naive enough to solely blame the local gas retailers on the shrinking shopping opportunities in 100 Mile, but they sure aren’t helping either. Shame on you! Mike Cleaver 108 Mile Ranch

people they have been pre-occupied re-interpreting and rewriting them. In January 2013, a federal Court arbitrarily ruled that Métis and non-status [Aboriginals] are indeed [Aboriginals] under a section of the Constitution Act and fall under federal jurisdiction. How bizarre! To insist we continue into the 21st century as a colony is about as outrageous as allowing Canadian First Nations to continue to live in abject poverty with no realistic

hope for improvement. Canada is a colony with “selfrule,” and it is not working. It’s time to sever our colonial ties with Britain and start building a sovereign democratic society where the Constitution belongs to the people, not the government. But that is obviously the last thing in the world Harper wants to get involved with. Andy Thomsen Summerland

Pop sales increasing rapidly

To the editor: As a parent, I am concerned about the amount of overweight Canadians I now see daily. With Canadian stats reporting in 2014 that over 60 per cent of adults and 30 per cent of children and youth are either overweight or obese, why is it that pop sales are increasing exponentially in British Columbia? With obesity a major risk factor for a plethora of illnesses from esophageal, colon and pancreatic cancers to hypertension, stroke, coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes, why are parents purchasing pop as a daily beverage instead of only on special occasions? Perhaps I am dating

myself; however, some of you will remember when we were kids having a pop was saved for special occasions, which may have been three to four times per year not per week. There is a very serious set of consequences attached to high sugar level intakes and we, as a province, need to deal with it today. The World Health Organization and the American Heart Association have both suggested daily consumption of sugar should be limited to less than 150 calories a day. With a typical can of pop holding 220 calories of sugar if we do the math this continues to prove that this should not be a daily part of our diets. Obesity in adults current-

ly costs British Columbian’s health-care system over $450 million per year and this sum is destined to increase dramatically as it reflects the burden of obesity-related diseases unless we do something to change it. I have heard comments that the reason people in B.C. are drinking so much pop is that it is an inexpensive alternate to more health oriented less sugary drinks. Maybe instead of reaching for a glass of pop when we are thirsty next time, we should consider reaching for a fresh glass of B.C. water to quench our thirst. The price is certainly right and the health benefits remarkable. Kevin Anderson Kelowna

he prospect of piping diluted heavy oil across northern British Columbia and loading it in tankers has generated significant genuine protests, as well as bursts of celebrity nonsense, rent-a-stunts and instant online petitions. Natural gas pipelines and export terminals, on the other hand, are generally accepted by the public. Premier Christy Clark staked her political future on developing liquefied natural gas exports, and pulled off an upset election win that not even Clark expected. Most of the heat she’s taken on that is focused on her extravagant predictions that LNG will pay off the debt and maybe even get rid of our sales tax. But as I predicted 18 months ago, there’s a shift in the target of professional protesters to natural gas. A reminder of that awaited me on a morning walk to the B.C. legislature during the last week of the May session. At the front gate stood a young woman in a bikini top and shorts, her skin smeared with a dark material, presumably

reading for reporters who are presented with slick banners and posturing protesters. Renouf follows the money as well as the familiar faces who pop up at protest after protest. In April, he reported that the increasingly militant Council of Canadians is supporting the Unist’ot’en camp, along with what he describes as “a host of NGOs, unions, militant anarchists and professional protesters.” They include Harsha Walia, who organized violent protests against the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Meanwhile in the real world, TransCanada Corp. announced last week its subsidiary NovaGas Transmission has signed an agreement with Chevron and Apache for a gas pipeline that will connect to Pacific Trails. It’s one of four gas pipelines TransCanada has in development for what is planned to be the biggest industrial investment in B.C. history. They can smear it with oil, but gas is the protest industry’s latest target. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

the province Campground operator saves tiny owlet WILLIAMS LAKE - A tiny but mighty owlet named Dale is recuperating after an exciting rescue Saturday night near Williams Lake. Steve Simms who runs the Chief Will-Yum Campground at Sugar Cane Reserve came to Dale’s aid. Simms said he was four-wheeling behind the campground on a trail when he startled two ravens who were in the air fighting over the owlet about 35 feet away. “Suddenly I saw this owl drop 30 to 35 feet from their clutches and land on the side of the road,” Simms said. Simms grabbed a towel, gently picked up the owl, brought it home and put it in a box. The owlet, which biologists believe is a Northern Saw-whet, couldn’t fly likely due to its young age, but seemed to be able to move its wings. Simms said that’s the first time he has ever seen that type of owl in the region. He suspects the ravens took the owl from a nest. When he contacted the BCSPCA Williams Lake Branch, staff referred him to 2nd Chance Wildlife Rescue in Quesnel and on Sunday Sue Burton, a volunteer from Williams Lake, came and picked up the owl and arranged to take it to the shelter. By Tuesday morning Burton said Dale had eaten four frozen mice from the pet store and was looking good.

Eight Segways stolen from tour operator Salmon Arm - A Shuswap business owner is asking people to keep their eyes peeled for any sign of the eight Segways stolen from her business last week. The single-person stand-up vehicles were stolen from Shuswap Unique Adventure Tours’ secure Scotch Creek compound at some point overnight on Thursday, May 29. “It was secured very well,” company owner Barb Rivest said. “But, if someone wants something bad enough, they’re going to get it.” Chase Mounties have said thieves broke into the compound to steal a horse trailer containing the eight Segways.

Yes. I think the government needs to give a lot more to make this happen. The ministry is not budging, and teachers work really hard. They deserve more, they put up with a lot in the classroom.

Yes. The teachers should get whatever they need in order to have the tools to teach kids the right way.

Paying more money is not the solution. The solution is putting more supports and additional qualified teachers in the classroom.

C apsule C omments How’s your sunscreen supply? The shelf life for standard sunscreen products is three years but if it has been exposed to high heat during last summer, it may not be up to potency. It’s good to replace it with some fresh product. Choose one with an SPF of at least 30 and labelled broad spectrum to protect against both UVA and UVB rays. One of the best anti-aging things you can do for your skin is not to overexpose it to sunlight especially during the middle hours of hot summer days. Use sunscreen lotion and clothing to protect your skin from the aging effects of sunlight. Those with lung conditions like asthma often use inhalers to help open the airways. These devices work well but only if the medication gets deep into the lungs. So proper technique is important. Metered-dose inhalers must be shaken well then breathed in slowly and deeply when the inhaler is pressed. By breathing in continuously minimizes the amount of medication that hits the back of the throat. The other type of inhaler is the dry powder inhaler where the force of the patient’s breath moves the medication into the lungs. This type of inhaler comes as single-use or multi-use types. Remember, proper use of these inhalers is important otherwise the medication will not work efficiently. If you feel you aren’t getting the most from your inhalers, see our pharmacists for advice. We’d be happy to check your technique and help you use them correctly.

Domestic dispute leads to charges Around 6:45 p.m. on June 4, 100 Mile House RCMP were advised by a concerned citizen of a domestic dispute in progress at an apartment building located on the 700 block of Cariboo Trail. The first officer on scene attended the residence where he encountered a 45-year-old male and a 30-year-old female involved the dispute. While attempting to determine what was occurring, the man brandished a knife and made threatening gestures to use the knife against the officer. After a brief stand off, the male fled from the building. The woman then produced a knife making threats against police, as well as causing property damage to the building and harming herself. A brief stand off ensued and the female relin-

quished the knife to police. The female was subsequently arrested by officers and escorted to 100 Mile District General Hospital where she was treated for self inflicted injuries and released. A member conducting patrols in the area located the suspect on Cedar Avenue. The officer attempted to arrest the male who responded violently. The man was subdued and arrested and taken to detachment cells. Both suspects are residents of 100 Mile House and are facing several proposed charges. The male also had two outstanding warrants for his arrest from 100 Mile House and Kamloops for assault and breach of a recognizance. 100 Mile House RCMP will be pro-

posing the following additional charges as a result of this incident against the male as follows: • Assault on a peace officer with a weapon

Lone Butte 4H Club members have been raising funds by washing vehicles at the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment. Staff/Sgt. Blake Ward says the vehicles have to be washed anyway, and it’s a good way to engage youth in the community. The youth groups at Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship and the Youth Zone will also get to wash police vehicles for two months this year.

CMHA host Ride Don’t Hide

Ken Alexander Free Press

There is still time to participate in the Canadian Mental Health AssociationSouth Cariboo Branch (CMHA-SC) Third Annual Community Bike Ride at the 108 Heritage Site on June 22. Didi Henderson, CMHA-SC fundraising chair and this year’s Ride Don’t Hide event co-ordinator, invites everyone to get involved in the branch’s biggest fundraiser of the year. “One of the reasons I like the Ride Don’t Hide is because we’re trying to promote mentally healthy people in a healthy society, which is one of the focuses of the Canadian Mental Health Association.” Noting this ride kind of conquers all those boxes, she says physi-

cal activity is good for mental and physical health; it’s a community bike ride and not a race, which involves families and people from one-year-olds to those in their eighties; and there is a social aspect to it because of the free barbecue after the riders come back to the site. “It is definitely meant to be an inclusive community event.” Fundraising is an important part of the event because it provides funds for some of our local initiatives, Henderson says, adding it helps raise awareness of mental health issues and that is equally important. “In our society, mental illness is still stigmatized. We’re trying to reduce the stigma.” She says they are also looking for volunteers, so this is a way to get

involved for people who don’t want to ride. “We have to set up tables and marshal people or if they just want to flip burgers, or stand at the cross roads and hand out water bottles, they can do that.” People who want to volunteer can contact Henderson at 250-7916295, or e-mail didikh@ gmail.com. Folks, who want to get involved in fundraising but don’t want to do the bike ride, can become “virtual riders” by collecting pledges and registration forms in advance or the day of

the event. It costs $35 to register for the ride, which includes a professional cycling shirt; $25 without a T-shirt; a family rate by donation on the day of the race; and youth 12 years and under are free. Registration forms can be picked up at Didi’s Boutique or at the CMHA office at 555 Cedar Ave. Folks can also register at the 108 Historic Site on June 22 between 9 and 11 a.m. “Even if people don’t want to get pledges or fundraise, that’s OK. We just want people to

Spring delightfully green CANIM LAKE

Peter Hart 250 397-2645

harts@netbistro.com

Dear Canimites, Spring advances stepby-step here at Canim. Gardens bloom, Saskatoon bushes set their fruit, and the fragrance of false Solomon’s-seal graces the evening woodlands. Crib closes The cribbage group and their boosters packed Margo’s Cabin to close out their season with a potluck – a terrific spread of good food to cap a great season. Maurice Clark and Bill Morehouse shared first and second place for the year, their averages separated by a mere one-hundredth of a point. Terry Wagner

and Dolores Angell shared the muchcoveted ‘Most Skunks’ award. Planter, bake and craft sale On a sunny May 31 at the Canim Lake Store, the good women of the Canim Lake Community Club set out over 100 pots of plants ranging from the purely decorative to the deliciously edible – doronicum to raspberries, dahlia’s to tomatoes. On the baking table, 60 pies, packages of squares, cookies, loaves and muffins, and a delicious trifle were laid, and more kept coming as the morning progressed. They sold down to the last crumb. The beef-on-a-bun and coffee got a lot of attention, as did the crafters tables of denise swift (pottery and bark carving) and Leona Hurrell (knitting). The club netted $715 on the day.

Bursary awarded Congratulations to Tagen Hubick – the first Peter Skene Ogden Secondary graduating student to be awarded the community club’s $1,000 bursary for continuing studies. Tagen lives on the Canim Lake Band Reserve with her mother Margo Archie, and she’s enrolled in the social work program at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, with an intended focus on First Nations studies. Bird notes Bob Campbell has set nesting boxes on the fence line of the Shirran farm hoping to entice mountain bluebirds. He has installed about 30 over the years. Bluebirds nest along Bates Road but so far have not settled this far east. Bob also reports sighting a Lazuli bunting and a western kingbird here this spring.

Archers let fly Families enjoy friendly competition at Bighorn Archery Club Outdoor 3D Shoot

Gaven Crites

Daryl Silverton, left, and Chad Larson watched as Wesley Silverton, 14, took aim at the first target on an Outdoor 3D Archery Shoot hosted by the Bighorn Archery Club near 100 Mile House on June 7.

Fastball results

Brandan Moore was on the mound for Exeter Sporting Goods on June 9, pitching a 16-7 win over the Sanford & Dillman Hornets, which had Bob Collens throwing. A June 6 game between Jake's Pub Old Buds and Hornets was rescheduled for June 10, after press time.

The Bighorn Archery Club's Outdoor 3D Shoot saw 89 archers from all ages at the 99 Mile Snowmobile Club site near 100 Mile House on June 7-8. The shooters – families and friends enjoying the outdoors on a sunny weekend – walked the trails there and took aim at 40 different animal figurine targets on two courses over two days, accumulating points for their accuracy. The event saw many local entrants, but also drew visitors from all over British Columbia, explains Bighorn Archery Club secretary denise little. “Set up [of the course] took eight hours on [June 6] with approximately 15 enthusiastic club members, without whom none of it could have happened,” she says. “Many door prizes were handed out thanks to all the individuals and businesses who supported our event. It could not be done so successfully without them.” Marlon Dalpre of 100 Mile House won the barebow adult male category. 100 Mile's Anthony Silverton won in youth bowhunter.

Gymnasts great under pressure South Cariboo Rhythmic Gymnastics Club celebrates rewarding season

Coach Sang-Hee Robinson says it with multiple exclamations marks – “what a year the South Cariboo Rhythmic Gymnastics Club had.” The club held its year-end Gala with showcases and recognition awards at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on May 23, where gymnasts from pre-school, recreational, competitive, and coaching levels put their talents on display for friends and family. “It was a fun and colourful evening for all those involved,” says Robinson. “We recognized our four graduating coaches for their dedication and commitment to our club over the past four years. These coaches are Amy Dykstra, Kimberly Rottluff, Mikayla Rottluff and Nicole Weston. "Thank you to all the parents, athletes, coaches and the community for making this a very successful season.” Three gymnasts – Candice-Rose Mapson, Jill McArthur and Sarah Robinson – had good results in a final competition of the season at the Millennium Cup hosted by Adagio

Rodeo provided entertainment

Ken Alexander Free Press

The weather was perfect for the British Columbia Rodeo Association-sanctioned Clinton May Ball Rodeo on May 24-25.

After a cool wet spring, summer has finally arrived and many gardens are starting to showcase their blooms. Cooler conditions this spring in many areas of the province have helped invasive plants to thrive. While spring planting is likely complete, it’s still a good idea to grow plants that benefit the environment in your garden. You probably already know that certain plants are not native to your area; but some of these plants are invasive species which, in addition to not being native, also have the potential to cause economic and environmental harm. This harm comes from the fact that invasive species prey on native species and/or out-compete them for scarce resources. Invasive plants can also decrease the amount of biodiversity in an area because the predators that would normally prey on plants in their native range do not exist in a non-native environment, allowing the population of non-native plants to grow rapidly. So which plants are invasive, and how do you get rid of them without harming the environment? First of all, which plants are invasive species depends on where you live, so make sure you check with a trustworthy resource to determine which plants are not native to your area. The simplest way to do this is to contact your regional invasive plant coordinator. There are a dozen regional groups across BC that are working hard to reduce the impacts of invasive plants and species in your area. To find a regional coordinator near you, access the online map through www.bcinvasives.ca - a helpful resource for information, volunteer opportunities, and ways to learn about invasive plants and responsible gardening. Some examples of invasive plants of concern in BC include orange hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum), spotted knapweed (Centaurea biebersteinii), sulphur cinquefoil (Potentilla recta), and giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum). Giant hogweed is becoming more prominent in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Gulf Islands, and central to southern Vancouver Island due to the cool spring conditions, and is especially bad not only for the environment but because it has a toxic sap that

can burn and blister the skin. Once exposed to this toxin, the area of skin affected can be UV-sensitive for several years to come, and if it contacts the eyes, it can cause blindness. This plant is so dangerous that Worksafe BC has a video for safety procedures. Giant hogweed can be confused with native cow parsnip, but giant hogweed has a very large umbrella-like umbel and can grow upwards of 5 metres! It is best NOT to touch or go near this plant if you spot it. While plants like giant hogweed should be removed carefully based on recommended practices or use of experts for removal, weeding is typically the simplest way of getting rid of invasive species, although it can be rather time-consuming. It is effective for invasive plants such as English ivy (Hedera helix), which resists pesticides and herbicides with its waxy coating. This plant can be gotten rid of by cutting any climbing vines, pulling out the roots with a garden shovel, and putting a deep layer of mulch over the area where it grows. This area should also be monitored in the spring to make sure no new shoots sprout. There are some invasive plants that grow more aggressively with weeding or mowing, such as orange hawkweed, and that’s why it’s important to learn more about invasive plants and the best methods of removal and disposal. It’s almost always best not to compost invasive plants. Instead, bag and incinerate them at the local landfill. It’s even better if you label the bag and put in the appropriate place so these plant fragments don’t also spread to natural areas around the landfill and beyond. Volunteering with organizations to help stop invasive species in your area is also a good idea. You may make new friends and get some exercise at the same time! Your regional coordinator can link you to events like community weed pulls and other groups active in your area. It is also a good idea to choose native species for your yard as much as possible. Native species require less maintenance than non-native species because they are by definition ideally adapted to the environment that they are already in. They can also attract local wildlife to your area, which increases the health of your ecosystem. Enjoy summer gardening!

The B.C. Liberal government wants completion of secondary school exams and report cards declared an essential service to protect students in the ongoing British Columbia teachers strike. The application to extend essential services and avoid “serious and immediate damage� to students was filed on June 6 with the Labour Relations Board (LRB) by the B.C. Public School Employers Association. The proposed widening of the existing essential services order so grades 10 to 12 students can finish the school year and get their final grades would only apply if the B.C. Teachers Federation (BCTF) escalates to a full strike from oneday-a-week rotating strikes in each district. Teachers are voting June 9-10 on a move to a full strike, which could come as soon as June 16. The requested order would cover not just teachers but support staff represented by CUPE and other unions that would not cross teachers’ picket lines. That would also ensure new special needs students are designated and payroll processing continues. The request covers all services needed to prepare, run and mark all provincial and schoolbased exams, as well as compile and enter final grades. Education Minister Peter Fassbender had previously insisted

–  without explanation – that exams and final grading would not be disrupted. The application says failure to deliver final grades would leave graduating students ineligible for scholarships and potentially unable to apply to postsecondary institutions or employers. “Depriving Grade 12 students of post-secondary opportunities, which may not be replaceable, would clearly threaten the welfare of these students.� Grades 10 and 11 marks are also needed for access to bursaries or scholarships and appropriate placement in the next year’s classes, the application stated. The BCTF has warned its members that its strike pay fund is virtually empty. Teachers have already been subject to a 10 per cent pay cut as a result of a partial lockout restricting their hours that was imposed by school employers and upheld by the LRB on June 4. On June 6, Premier Christy Clark said she first wants a settlement on wage increases for teachers ahead of further consideration of changes to class size and composition. “Teachers deserve a raise, too. I think we can get there. “But we have to decide we’re going to roll up our sleeves, be serious about bargaining and decide that there is a will to get this done without putting kids in the middle of the fight.� With files from Monisha Martins

Rotating strike June 12 The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) has informed School District #27 it will be withdrawing teaching services in SD27 on Thursday (June 12), says schools superintendent Mark Thiessen.

During that time, schools and other locations will likely be picketed. “Should this occur, I also expect each school will have very limited, and in some case, no Continued on A26

Eliza Archie School

May provided two fun outings Obituaries

In the month of May, the students of Eliza Archie Memorial School (EAMS) went to Educo Adventure School on May 6-9, and fishing at Gustafson Creek on May 15. We went to Educo for three-and-a-half days

and three nights. Then we went fishing with the elders a week later. It was a joyful experience to go to Educo and Gustafson Creek.

Educo trip When the day started out, we were all excited because we were going to Educo. First, we packed our stuff on the bus and we were waiting for the Grade 4s. When they were done, we finally could get on the bus. On the way there, we all were talking, and when we finally got there, we talked about

the things we were going to do. We played some games like Water Buffalo and Everybody It tag, and then when we were done, we made a circle. The things you can do at Educo are canoeing, climbing wall, low ropes, high ropes, swimming, mud bogging, and activity time. Of course, before you eat at Educo you have to answer the “Question of the Day.” On Thursday, we were waiting for the kindergarten, grades 1, 2, and 3 to come play games and go canoeing.

Drop in a line By Monika Paterson Father’s Day is around the corner, so if you enjoy fishing and the possibility of winning some great prizes, pack up your family and fishing gear and make your way to Lac la Hache for the 14th Annual Father’s Day Fishing Derby, June 14-15. The derby is hosted by Kokanee Bay Resort, just 10 minutes north of the downtown Lac la Hache. Included in your entry ticket, $10 for

adult and $5 for children 12 and under, is the possibility of winning numerous prizes. There are cash prizes for largest fish, $500; second largest fish, $300; largest rainbow trout, $100; and largest white fish, $100. There are also many hidden weight, hidden time and door prizes available. There will also be silent auction items, and on June 15, there will be freebees handed out to the children.

Parents urged to keep students home, other arrangements From A25

teaching or support staff to supervise students.” While schools will continue to be open and principals and vice-principals will be present, there will be no instruction. For safety reasons, Thiessen asks parents to keep all children home from classes on June 12, and he will be directing the buses not to run that day. Most programs will not be running in the district schools on June 12, including all StrongStart programs, before and after-school daycares, or use by community user groups (on a rotating strike day, pickets are considered to be up from midnight to midnight). For further information regarding items related to the current job action and lockout, visit the SD27 website at www.sd27.bc.ca. On the link entitled “Questions and Answers re Strike and Lockout,” you will find more information regarding extracurricular activities, field trips, and teachers being covered by WorkSafeBC during the lockout. Classes will resume as normal on Friday (June 13).

On the way home on Friday, most of us were sleeping on the bus, but some of us talked about the things we all did.

of fish, like seven or six, but I caught only one. Most of the fish went to the Elders. How some people caught their fish was to have someone go up to the tunnel and scare the fish down the creek. Then someone would stay back and hold a net in the water and wait for a fish to come down. I hope we can go to Gustafson Creek and Educo next year. It is fun and we bring back memories each year. Next year, I hope to give my fish to my Kye7e (grandma). Morris Bob is a Grade 6 student at EAMS

Fishing with Elders When it was time to go to Gustafson Creek, we loaded up our nets and then we went onto the bus. On the way there, we all had some snacks. Some of us shared our snacks. My mom brought my snack, so I would not get hungry. When we finally arrived at Gustafson Creek, we had to pick a buddy to look after. Some of us caught a lot

HOOPER Rick

Rick Hooper, age 55, of Salmon Arm, B.C. Rick lost his life in a tragic farming accident on May 15, 2014. Rick is survived by his wife Debra, his three daughters Chelsy, Meranda and Carly; and his sister and brother-inlaw Lorri and Bill Lakatos. Rick was a selfless, loving, husband, father, brother and friend to many. Rick grew up playing hockey and baseball and always had a good time at tournaments. One of his favourite things to do was spend time at the lake where he loved to camp, boat, and waterski. Those who knew Rick would say he was the life of the party, yet there was another side to him that not only his friends saw. Rick was always there to lend a hand to anyone; friend, neighbour or stranger, and the word “no” was seldom used when it came to helping others. The most important thing in Rick’s life was his family. The pride he had for his wife and daughters cannot be expressed: they were his world, they were his everything. And though they know the days ahead will be a struggle, they will never quit showing him how much he was loved or how much he will be missed. A private gathering of friends and family was held on May 23 at Blind Bay.

BARRICK Madeleine

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Madeleine Barrick on May 4, 2014 at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, at the age of 83 years. She was born Madeleine Mary Wright on July 6, 1930 in Williams Lake, B.C. to Mary Melissa and Thomas Richard Burton Wright. The family ranch at Meadowbank on the Spout Lake Road out of Lac la Hache, B.C. was where Madeleine spent her growingup years. After marrying Donald Barrick on April 14, 1951, the couple moved back to his home in Ontario while he worked on the Niagara Falls Hydro project. They returned to Lac la Hache to make their home and raise their family . Madeleine was predeceased by her husband in 1996 and by several siblings: Willie, Dave, Eva, Margaret, Phyllis, and Stanley. She is currently survived by one sister, Irene Cahoon of Cache Creek, B.C.; three sons: Kelly (Jacquie) of Tappen, B.C.; Terry (Joanne) of Lac la Hache, B.C.; Todd (Lori) of 108 Mile, B.C.; seven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. After moving to Kamloops in 1996, she lived for many years in Westsyde and pursued her love of gardening. She had always loved to quilt and sew, as well as cook and knit. In her later years, she developed an avid interest in oil painting and most recently changed her medium to paint in acrylics. She will be dearly missed by all. A Celebration of Life will be held on July 5, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Lac la Hache Community Hall for anyone wishing to attend. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society in her memory.

Artist embraces new form

Gaven Crites Free Press

Gordon Spare has a different style, and with it, he’s created some impressive art. The longtime 108 Mile Ranch resident started borrowing some of the artistic stylings of the Haida people of northwestern British Columbia about three years ago, and a body of that acrylic work is currently on display at Showcase Gallery in 100 Mile House for the month of June. The vibrant and robust art form is easily recognizable in the dozen or so animals and figures, which seem to rise off the canvas like woodcarvings, hanging on the walls on the main floor of the South Cariboo Business Centre on Birch Avenue, where the gallery is located. Spare says the Haida style really caught his eye. “I was very impressed. They call it primitive art, but I don’t. “I think it’s highly developed over thousands of years. It’s unique in the world.” The artist says he did a lot of studying. “I bought every book I could and

learned their technique, and more important, their style.” While discussing First Nations people and how he came to paint like this, Spare talks about the history of the church, assimilation and residential schools. “I feel shame for what the Europeans did to them,” he says of First Nations people. “They have a different lifestyle and different beliefs. A different culture they’re trying to hold on to.” As a member of the Cariboo Artists’ Guild, a local group dedicated to promoting art and culture, Spare’s work has been on display previously as part of group shows at Parkside Art Gallery in 100 Mile House. He’s also part of the Studio 2 Studio Art Tour in 108 Mile Ranch. As a young man, he wanted to be a professional artist, but made his living as an accountant instead. “My parents talked me out of it,” he explains. “During the Depression, they said you won’t be able to [make a living].” Spare, who is 81, grew up in West Vancouver and moved to 108 Mile Gaven Crites photo Ranch almost 40 years ago. He started 108 Mile Ranch artist Gordon Spare has several Haida-style acrylic paintings on display at painting when he retired at age 65. Showcase Gallery in 100 Mile House.

Sometimes you just by Alexandra Straub hanker for some good ol’ fashioned home cooking and the desire makes distance no object.

That’s not including the approximately 8,300 kms travelled to get to Munich, Germany.

I’ve got the use of a bright red 2015 Audi A3 and a full tank of gas, so why not? Considering I’ll be there less than 24 hours, words like “ambitious” or “motivated” or even “crazy” might describe my reasoning. But heck, if it means I get a home cooked meal, I’d travel all night. Relatively speaking, I’m so close to them. I couldn’t let the opportunity go to waste. And anyone who loves their grandparents’ cooking will sympathize.

Putting the finishing touches to the mustang

By Nigel Matthews

Our classic and collector car expert continues today with the third 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 Mustang T5 body shell has been painted, clear coated, wet-sanded, re-cleared and finally polished. Now comes the fun part of a restoration, the reassembly, opening boxes and fitting all of those new parts. This is as close as you can get to being a car factory assembly line worker except you are doing every task instead of just one, and you have all the time that is needed not having to work to the speed of a production line. One of the upgrades that the T5 will receive is a new product designed to dampen and suppress the driveline and road noise, making the inner cabin as quiet as possible and a bit like a modern car. The foil covered pads have a peel off backing and are adhered to every inner sheet metal panel such as the roof, floor, doors and bulkhead. The next step is to install the new wiring harness; old wiring harnesses become brittle over time due to heat and corrosion at the joints and terminals, ask the owner of any British Sports Car from that era! The interior has been completely renewed from top to bottom staring with the headliner, trim panels, carpets, dash pads and the seats have all been reupholstered.

Before the new back glass and windshield are installed (all of the other glass panels have been replaced) the new vinyl top is installed. Installing a vinyl roof is not a task that is performed very often these days but 360 have the skills to do this in-house. LKQ stocks a huge selection of high quality muscle car sheet metal and parts. “If you are doing a premium muscle car restoration the only sheet metal you want to use is from LKQ,” asserted Rick Francoeur at 360. The exterior panels will soon have their final fitting. They have been fitted and removed during the restoration process countless times to make sure that the panel gaps are correct. The final fitting process will involve

two or three people to make sure that the paint does not get chipped or damaged. Before the original V-8 engine was removed from the car it underwent a compression check, all of the cylinders had equal and strong readings so a complete re-build was not necessary. The carburetor has been replaced with a new two-barrel, the automatic transmission has been completely re-built as has the rear axle. Rick talked Laura out of fitting a modern rack and pinion power steering kit or even upgrading the manual steering box to a power-assisted unit so it will be reliving the Armstrong steering experience for Laura when parking at low speeds! One safety upgrade is the installation of original Ford front disc-brakes; these are

a must in today’s traffic. Collector vehicle drivers are very cautious, invariably when accidents occur it is the drivers around you that are not paying attention or cutting you off. 360 have done their research and paid a lot of attention to detail during this rebuild, right down to avoiding the temptation of installing an exhaust system with two tailpipes. Next week, we will explore what exactly a T5 is? How rare they are and explore some of the events that Laura and her brand new old car will be attending in this 50th anniversary year of the Ford Mustang. Nigel Matthews is the director of sales and marketing for Hagerty Insurance Canada. nmatthews@hagerty.com

ANNOUNCING “Being the product manager in charge of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, isn’t always easy. But that challenge is probably what I like most about my job. We built a V8 engine that’s as fuel efficient as some V6s. People didn’t think that could be done, we did it. I’m proud of that.”
