Biosolids become a regional issue

Bringing water to the ranch Taken last March at Historic Hat Creek Ranch, the photo to the right shows workers putting in the historic site’s new water system. The work is ongoing and the foundation has been laid to provide an emergency fire suppression system - via sprinklers - for certain buildings. The next project will be to build a storage take to contain the new system which holds a much greater water capacity and a higher pressure to deliver it.

RCMP investigating vehicle stolen from Surrey Ashcroft RCMP received a call at about 9:50 am on March 15 from a motorist on Hwy 1 about a Ford Econoline van in the ditch by the Red Hills rest stop. There was no one in the vehicle, but the motorist said he saw a northbound male walking on the highway. The male was located in Cache Creek on Stage Rd. by police. Police discovered that the van had

been reported stolen in Surrey the previous day. They also discovered that Marc Leveiller was not the man’s real name. He was properly identified as Michel Dionne, 29, of no fixed address, and was wanted out of the Lower Mainland on three arrest warrants for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and possession of stolen property. He was taken into custody and

transported to Kamloops, charged with obstructing police. He is facing more charges of obstruction, possession of drugs and two counts of theft. The matter is still under investigation and police would like to talk to anyone who may have given him a ride into Cache Creek. They can call the Detachment at 250 453-2216.

Although the protests are taking place just outside Merritt, local governments are discussing the issue of biosolids and the need for local consultation and governance over them. Ashcroft Council, at the Feb. 23 meeting, passed a resolution calling on the province to form a committee that includes local politicians, to examine and make recommendations for changes to the provincial biosolid review process and changes to the content in the Organic Matter Recycling Regulation and Agricultural Land Commission Act that govern the biosolid regulatory process in BC. “Biosolids are being moved from the Okanagan to Fraser Nicola without consultation,” said Ashcroft Mayor Jack Jeyes, who also sits as a TNRD Director. The issue of biosolids has been ongoing in BC for several years, and was front and centre in the local area around 2006 when the Greater Vancouver Regional District wanted to test Nutrifor on local fields. Local farmers and ranchers were opposed to the idea, concerned about possible heavy metal contamination in the product. Biosolids are produced at wastewater treatement plants by recovering and treating organic material. The TNRD uses biosolids at several of its closed landfills to recover and condition the soil, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Besides landfills, biosolids are used around the province for fertilizer and soil enhancement. They have not been approved for agricultural use. A group of activists set up a road blockade on Hwy 8, 10 km west of Merritt earlier this month to prevent trucks from bringing more biosolids to the Sunshine Valley facility. They are concerned about contamination of their drinking water. Last Saturday, MLA Jackie Tegart announced that the company “has voluntarily agreed not to accept any product for the next seven days,” while the TNRD meets with provincial officials “to explore options for resolving the immediate issue, and to discuss how to best manage biosolids, including ensuring public concerns are addressed.” Despite the assurance, the road block remains in place. “I think biosolids will be front and centre for a while,” said Jeyes.

Marijuana seized

March 10 around 1:30 pm Traffic Services was conducting a distracted driving enforcement road check on Hwy 1 at the south end of Cache Creek. Officers stopped a southbound Ford F150 after the driver was seen fastening his seat belt as he approached the road check. Police detected a strong odour of marijuana inside the truck. The driver was arrested and his vehicle searched. Fifteen grams of marijuana were seized and the 65 year old man from 150 Mile House was issued a ticket for seat belt violation.

Prohibited driver stopped

March 10 at 2 pm in the same area of Hwy 1, Traffic Service officers stopped a Dodge Caravan in which a passenger was not wearing a seat belt. The driver, a 50 year old Kitimat woman, could not produce a valid Drivers License and was found to be a prohibited driver. As she as taking a family member to a medical appointment in Vancouver, police decided not to impound the vehicle. Another adult was allowed to continue driving, but the woman will be charged with driving while prohibited.

Motel manager injured

Wendy Coomber Hwy 1 in Cache Creek. The car was travelling at 78 kph in a 50 kph zone. The driver exhibited suspicious behaviour and driving habits. The 18 year old Williams Lake man was given a ticket for speeding, but the officer also ordered the vehicle searched. Officers found $50,000 in cash hidden in the truck, along with three cell phones. Neither the driver nor his passenger, a 19 year old Williams Lake man, could give a consistent reason for the large amount of cash. The money was seized and is under investigation as proceeds of crime.

Freedom was brief

March 11 at 2 pm police were called to the Greyhound Bus station in Cache Creek about an intoxicated passenger disturbing the other travellers. The highly intoxicated male became very agitated when police approached him in the parking lot. It was discovered that the 43 year old Gitanmaax man had just been released from the Fraser Valley Correctional Centre that morning, on conditions that included abstention from alcohol. He was arrested and taken to Kamloops to answer to two charges of breaching his probation.

March 14 at 2 pm police were called to a residence in downtown Ashcroft where the owner had apprehended two young teenagers who had been throwing rocks at his vehicles. One managed to smash a driver’s side window. Police took custody of the boys and turned them over to their parents for discipline. One of the parents agreed to pay for the damaged window.

Medical issues

March 14 at 11:30 pm police were called to assist BC ambulance with a possible intoxicated male in the Oasis parking lot. It turned out that the 64 year old Hagwilget male was having a diabetic incident. He was transported to the hospital for treatment and released to his daughter.

Deer 1 - Landrover 0

March 15 at 8:50 pm police received a report of a vehicle in the ditch on Hwy 99 about 10 km from the junction with Hwy 97.

Showcasing local business Spring is here, in case you haven’t noticed. Come celebrate the first day of Spring at the upcoming third annual Spring Into Action at the Cache Creek Community Hall and support the Cache Creek Youth Group while you’re at it. This is a venue for local entrepreneurs who would like to either debut or promote their home-based businesses and hand crafted products, as well as for local groups who promote outdoor activities and healthy life style choices. Let’s celebrate Spring and all the wonderful activities, home businesses and local products in Cache Creek and Ashcroft! Proceeds from admission go to the Cache Creek Youth Group, which is growing in popularity and attendance! The youth group meets at the hall or at the Cache Creek Park. We play team building games, create artwork and crafts as well as make snacks. The youth are ages 10 to 15 and are enjoying having something fun to do on a Fri-

day Night! The next youth group is March 27 at 6pm and we will meet at the Cache Creek Park. There will be demonstrations, entertainment, door prizes as well as a food concession operated by the Cache Creek Elementary School PAC. There will be many tantalizing products and local groups such as Scentsy, Epicure, Hoops & Poops (worm castings), Watkins, Geocaching demonstration, Zumba by Krystal, Sage & Sands Pony Club, Baking by Jeannette Renz, Stamps by Sandra Nixon, Baby Beanies by KC, Organo Gold Coffee, Soap Nuts, Mary Kay, and much more! Admission is by donation to the food bank, or to the Cache Creek Youth Group. Spring Into Action takes place at the Cache Creek Community Hall on Stage Road on Saturday, March 21 from 10am-2pm. To book a table for Spring Into Action contact Marcie Down at 778-2076957. Proceeds for the table rentals go to the Youth Group. Marcie Down

Completion rates exceed goal

Vendors and customers at the Cache Creek Market chat.

Cache Creek Market returns in May Cache Creek Market returns on May 2 for what it hopes is another successful season. The Market, which began in 2011 as a project of the Cache Creek Beautification Society, is a combination of Farmer and Flea. That is, vendors of home grown, home baked and home made are welcomed to set up a table, as are people bringing flea market or rummage items. Last year, the most successful yet with as many as 19 vendors present on one day, saw a variety of items that often changed from week to week, from locally-grown

vegetable bedding plants to art work, fresh fruit, hand painted bird houses, collectibles, freshly made bannock, pies and preserves, to herb plants and handmade soaps. The Market is set up at the main intersection on the old Esso property which the Village leases and allows the Market to use. Volunteers are looking at ways to increase the Market’s success. Assisted by a very generous donation from Second Time Around, the Market plans to put a storage shed on the property to store extra tables and shade canopies for

vendors who can’t transport their own. Volunteers are also considering holding an indoor Market once a month over the Winter months in the Community Hall as a way to provide a year-round Market for vendors and customers. The same group puts on the annual Seedy Saturday in February and the organizers see many similarities between the two activities, with opportunities to expand them both. The Cache Creek Market operates every Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm from May to October. Vending sites are free on Opening Day, May 2.

Incorrect information used by the Ministry of Education has caused School District No. 74 (Gold Trail) to re-assess its completion data, which shows the number of students who have completed their graduation requirements. The revised results show that the District is far above its targets in all areas, not below, as the initial report from the MoE indicated. In late December the MoE released its completion report for the 2013/14 school year, and also released the names of students identified as “not completing” in that year. Schools were provided with the names of these students, and asked to indicate the status of the learners in question. The District reviewed the evidence based on information provided by the schools. The MoE had identified 38 SD74 students as “not completing” in the 2013/14 school year. The District, after consultation with area schools, ascertained that of those students 18 had moved out of Gold Trail (14 had moved out of province); four were continuing with school (seven-year or adult graduation programs); three had graduated (one Dogwood, two Evergreen); and 13 self-selected to withdraw. The results highlight the challenge of including completion data within the Superintendent’s Report on Achievement, without having access to all pertinent data, and shows the importance of first reviewing, and including, District data. It also shows the fluidity of the Gold Trail student population, and indicates that District schools know their learners, past

and present. The adjusted six-year completion rate for the 2013/14 school year shows: For all students: 88 per cent (an increase of 21 per cent from the initial report; 11 per cent above the District target). For Indigenous students: 82 per cent (an increase of 21 per cent from the initial report; 16 per cent above target). For Non-Indigenous students: 95 per cent (an increase of 17 per cent from the initial report; one per cent above target). For male students: 82 per cent (an increase of 19 per cent from the initial report; five per cent above target). For female students: 94 per cent (an increase of 22 per cent from the initial report; 17 per cent above target). “The SD74 (Gold Trail) Board of Education, and other Boards in the province, are requesting that the Ministry of Education develop a new process that will facilitate an accurate reporting of information on completion rates,” says SD74 Board Chair Carmen Ranta. “More importantly, we ask that this information is not made public until it is more accurate. It is alarming and disrespectful to schools and communities when errors and inaccurate information portray completion rates that are poor in our District, when in fact they are very good, and improving. “The public deserves accurate information, and we hope to work together with the Ministry of Education to provide this in future.” Submitted

Water protection before it’s too late Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink, observed the Ancient Mariner. Besides the Vernal Equinox (Spring) on the 20th, this week we also observe World Water Day on March 22. We live in a beautiful country, generous with its fresh water and fertile land. It’s hard to imagine not having clean water at our disposal. Canada is home to one fifth of the world’s freshwater and hosts the third-largest volume of renewable freshwater resources after Brazil and Russia. I grew up on the Great Lakes, which provide much of that freshwater we boast about. I can tell you first hand, that the water I was exposed to was extremely polluted from years of untreated industrial effluent. Still, we drank it, we swam in it. There was no other choice. Cleaning up the Great Lakes has challenged Ontario and the affected states for years. It would have been much easier to protect them from the beginning, but the promise of industry and jobs made everyone turn a blind eye to what was happening. It’s not only the Great Lakes. Recent environmental catastrophes such as British Petroleum’s (BP) “oil spill” in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 (4.9 million barrels estimated) and the Fukushima Dailchi nuclear meltdown in 2011 caused by a devastating tsumani have added huge amounts of toxic waste to an already shaky environment. If you are a fish or seafood lover, you’ve probably noticed a difference in the quality of commercial product, most of it being exposed to increasing amounts of pollution.

With water and sustainable development being this year’s focus of the United Nations General Assembly, take some time to learn about water-related issues, its sustainable use and how we can protect this precious resource.

Don’t take fresh water for granted. We see water as a renewable resource, but it may not always be so. As this winter has been strangely devoid of the snow we’re used to expecting, it may be that the climate change we keep hearing about will make this a normal occurance rather than just a blip. We may find ourselves sharing California’s unending drought. Water is precious: let’s take care of it.

The old bridge will be remembered in salvaged souvenirs Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Raise a glass of something and toast the Irish! The big news is, of course, the removal of the bridge. It looks very strange not to see it there. There was a good crowd out last week to see the last two pieces taken out by the largest crane most of us have ever seen. It is sad to see this piece of history hauled away. I understand it will be recycled; I’d love to know what its next life will look like. Many folks have purchased, by donation, a piece of rail, or a commemorative piece of concrete with a plaque stating the years of the bridge. Thanks so much to Steve Rice and the TNRD for having the idea, and for organizing it all. Thanks too to Arnie Oram for assisting with the delivery of the rails. The donations will go to the SBCC and the SBFD, thanks to all that have made donations. The SBCC has as piece of rail to go up at the hall. It will be nice to have a little bit of the history at the hall. I mentioned it in last month’s column, but here’s a re-

minder - the Bridging to Literacy committee has engaged Richard Wagamese to come and speak in our communities. One of Canada’s foremost Indigenous authors and storytellers, Richard has been a professional writer since 1979. His impressive body of work includes six novels, a book of poetry and five non-fiction titles, including two memoirs and an anthology of his newspaper columns. Richard has been honoured with many, many awards recognizing his achievements in writing. Everyone is welcome to come and listen to Richard speak about his work. There are two opportunities to catch Richard on March 19: at Ashcroft Secondary school at 1:30 and at 5 in Spences Bridge at Clemes Hall on Hwy 8. There will be light finger food snacks, (pot luck sandwiches, cookies, etc.) after the Spences Bridge talk.

We break off in pairs and take a stretch of road, and in two hours or so, and MANY bags of garbage later we have a litter free community! Come join us for a little exercise, some visiting, and a great sense of accomplishment! We’ll gather for lunch when we’re finished and share a meal together as we pat each other on the back. Thanks to the TNRD for supplying the bags, vests, and picker-uppers. Our TV society is very pleased to announce that we finally have CBC Kamloops and NOT CBC North! Yippee!

Don’t forget about our monthly bingo on the third Monday of the month. We have finally made the move into the 21st Century and bought paper bingo cards! Personally, I will miss the old cardboard sliders. Now I have to get a dabber I guess. The bingo is picking up in popularity, so come on out and try your hand at winning. Early bird games start at 6:30, regular at 7. There are concession snacks available (sometimes Craig’s famous chili!) I’m looking forward to the return of Zumba! We are very fortunate to have the skills of instructor Karen Savage shared with us now TWICE a week! Thanks to Karen for making the effort to come to us, we usually have to travel for everything, so this is great! Come dance your way to a fitter you – noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It’s more affordable if you pay in advance for four classes (and increases the chance you’ll go!) or pay a little bit more for drop in. Wear comfy clothes and runners – bring your water bottle. Desert Daze details are beginning to fall into place; I am delighted to announce some of our confirmed musicians! Ashcroft favourites Spiritus Mundii, Nadine Davenport, John Kidder and Jennifer Ferguson are back, as well as the Spences Bridge favourite, Flat Busted. From Merritt, Bobby Garcia and the Six Strings (they were awesome at the Steelhead Shuffle), From Kamloops, Bluesfoot, and from Vancouver; bluegrass trio The Honky Tonk Dilettantes, and a four piece country band led by Warren Murfit. And that sweet girl Haley Hendryx is coming back! We are awaiting confirmation from several other bands, so next month I will have more to announce – go “Like” Desert Daze on Face book, and follow to keep up on announcements and news! We are keeping our prices low for a weekend pass – so affordable!

Old-time mountain music and comforting cuisine Mar 21

Join co-hosts Creative Cow Productions and The Grand Central Station for a Dinner Concert featuring the fabulous acoustic duo of Jason & Pharis Romero on Saturday, March 21 at Ashcroft’s newest eatery - The Grand Central Station restaurant on Railway Ave. This co-production is the first of many in collaboration with Nadine Davenport Owner/Presenter from UniTea Tea Room. Doors open at 5:30pm with music starting at 7:30pm. Tix are available for the Dinner/Show and just for the Show and are now available in advance at UniTea Tea Room and The Grand Central. Close your eyes and let the music take you to the front porch of some Appalachian cabin, kicking back with a banjo and guitar and some sweet tea.

CREATIVE CURRENT Nadine Davenport creativecurrent@ telus.net Rooted in the old-time mountain music of Virginia and Tennessee, their approach is an unpretentious and simple with one single microphone between the two - for that Grand Ol Opry sound. What’s better for a bluegrass and folk enthusiast than handcrafted banjos made out of gourds and specially selected wood? Hearing them played by the people who made them, especially when those people also happen to be one of B.C.’s most beloved folk duos. The duo has just returned from an extremely successful overseas tour, as well as some busy stopovers throughout B.C. and Alberta, performing with Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café tour. It is clear listening to the new album that the Romeros have grown musically together in such a way as to create a masterpiece of soulful bluegrass. From traditional ballads to blues driven and swinging tunes, the duo have crafted music that evokes the old soul of Americana. This will be a show to remember folks - get your tickets now!

Notice of Memorial/Celebration of Life in Honour of Rocky (Bernard) Rokstad March 20, 1924 – February 16, 2015 Rocky was born in Tromso Norway moving to the City of Vancouver BC with his parents Halfdan and Anna at 3 years of age. His family later moved to property on Otter Road, Aldergrove where he attended school at the South Otter School. Rocky was born with music in his blood, at a young age he would visit neighbours and listened to music on the radio, returning home to practice playing the harmonica and later the accordion, he eventually played up to seven instruments. The band leader with his first professional musician’s job bought him a Hohner piano style accordion. Rocky was a proficient musician who developed his own unique accordion style, he later formed a band called Rocky’s Rhythm Ramblers. This band played for many of the numerous small hall dances in the Fraser Valley and later in communities throughout BC where he lived. Rocky had an adventurous spirit. As a teenager he worked as a deckhand on a fishing trawler where he travelled from Vancouver to the QC Islands, he later tried his hand as a logger on Vancouver Island. He landed a job with the Boundary Commission surveying the International boundary between Canada and the US. He travelled to Alaska aboard the ocean liner SS Princess Louise, playing in the lounge along the way. His stint in Alaska was spent in Haines where he played in the local music hall. Upon returning to Aldergrove Rocky met the love of his life, Lillian, they married in 1948. Their 61 years together brought many life adventures in the Cariboo area of BC where most of their 9 children were born. They made their way up the Fraser Canyon where Rocky worked as a construction worker building the railway tunnels. Once in the Cariboo Rocky logged with horses and ran a small sawmill for many years until he began his career as a faller with BC Hydro survey department falling “right of way” on most major transmission lines in BC as well as constructing some of the hydro stations. When you look at seemingly impossible sites for transmission power lines Rocky has traversed most of them multiple times. Hydro re-located him to Smithers where his family lived for many years while Rocky continued to work around BC. Rocky was blessed with a long healthy life and clear mind, passing one month short of his 91st birthday. Predeceased by his wife Lillian, April 2010, Rocky is survived by his family Barb (Wilf), Gloria (Randy) Donna (Tom) Bernie (Jeanne) Vicky, Sherry (Rob) Colleen (Stubbs) Chuck (Lori) and Bonnie (Rick), 19 grandchildren & 10 great grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at the Clinton Community Hall on April 4, 2015 at 2 PM followed by an afternoon gathering and later a Celebration of Life to include both live and recorded music as a fitting family tribute to Rocky in honour of his love of music. For further information please visit the facebook event “Rocky’s Celebration of Life.”

Arnot to sit on rural council Black Press Members of the newly-formed rural advisory council were named by the Minister of Forests Steve Thomson and MLA Donna Barnett last week, and Community Futures Sun Country manager Deb Arnot is one of them. The 14 members come from different areas of the province, from McBride to Skidegate and from Port McNeill to Dawson Creek. Of the 87 people nominated for the council, 11 were from the Cariboo. Barnett, who will co-chair the council, said choosing the members was a tough decision. “Quite a few of us sat down in government and looked into diversity, and people in some regions that had an affiliation with the mountain pine beetle coalitions.” The rural advisory council has emerged out of the work of the pine beetle coalitions, Barnett said. All of the selected members have strong business backgrounds, and many have experience in municipal politics. Besides her involvement with Community Futures, Arnot and her husband have co-owned and operated a logging company for the past nine years. She has a long history in community involvement and received a 2011 British Columbia Community Achievement Award. Council members also include Geri Collins of Kamloops, Tom Hoffman of Williams Lake, Susan Clovechok of Fairmont Hot Springs, Bill Holmberg of Houston, Chief Roy Jones Jr. of Skidegate, Sue Kenny of Dawson

Creek, Jonathan Lok of Port McNeill, Grace McGregor of Christina Lake, David Pernarowski of Terrace, Chris Pieper of Armstrong, Sylvia Pranger of Agassiz, Gerry Thiessen of Vanderhoof, and Eric (Rick) Thompson of McBride. “There are promising economic opportunities on the horizon for B.C. and we want to ensure that small and rural communities share fully in the benefits,” Thomson said in a press release. Barnett said she is hopeful the council will advise government on initiatives and policies that will make rural B.C. a better and easier place to live. “We’ll be looking at ways to generate economics. In many of our little communities, because of the pine beetle we have lost a lot of jobs.” The initial focus for the council will be to provide advice on rural economic development, including rural access to capital and business development support for rural entrepreneurs and businesses. The council will also advise on rural community capacity building, including the Rural Dividend. Barnett said for rural B.C. the council probably has the biggest scope of any group advising government. The first meeting of the council is scheduled to take place in Victoria, March 26 at the legislature and on the 27 at one of the government agency’s buildings. “It’s very exciting,” Barnett said. “I haven’t met most of these people in person. I have had discussions with them on the phone, but that’s about it.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Winner chosen from many entries Dear Editor I would like to add a little to the text on the Rememberence Day Poster by Bailey Pollard that was featured in last week’s Journal. Bailey won first place for the A.E.S. poster contest back in November. Her poster, along with all first and second place posters from our zone, was sent to our Zone Commander to select one poster to forward on to Dominion for all of Canada. Our zone includes the schools from Lytton, Lillooet, Ashcroft, Merritt, Kamloops, Barrier, Clearwater-Vavenby. To come in second place from all these schools is quite an accomplishment.

I would like to say again congratulations, Bailey. We look forward to your poster this November. Glen Joss Legion Poppy Chair

Thank you to all who helped family Dear Editor I would like to take the opportunity to thank, in public, all the medical staff and employees at Ashcroft hospital, as well as the equally important ambulance crews at the BC Ambulance station in Ashcroft. To all of you who have been involved with my father, I thank you all for your care, patience and consideration of him. Peter Clark Ashcroft

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The Village of Clinton will hold a Public Hearing in the Municipal Council Chambers, located at 1423 Cariboo Highway in Clinton, on Wednesday March 25th, 2015 at 6:30 pm prior to the regular Council meeting for those who wish to make a presentation regarding a REQUEST FOR TEMPORARY COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL PERMIT for Lot 21 Clinton Townsite Lillooet District (1522 Cariboo Hwy). The Village of Clinton has received a request from the owner of the property located at Lot 21 Clinton Townsite Lillooet District (1522 Cariboo Hwy) near the “As the Crow Flies Country Store” to have a greenhouse located on the vacant lot. The property is currently zoned C-1 Downtown Commercial and a greenhouse is not one of the permitted uses. The owner has requested a Temporary Permit in order to determine whether a greenhouse will become a permanent service to the community. A Temporary Permit can only be issued for a two year period with the option to renew for a further two years. Should the owner wish to maintain the greenhouse on a permanent basis the zoning can be changed or the greenhouse classification could be added to the current zoning. If you deem your interests to be affected by this Temporary Permit please submit your comments in writing or attend the Public Hearing and you will be given an opportunity to be heard. If you require information regarding this Temporary Permit please contact the Village office at 250-459-2261. Tom Dall, CAO
