District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall gave an intense and impassioned earful to Interior Health (IH) acute services director Peter Du Toit about program funding in the community at an April 15 council meeting. Campsall said IH “continually puts up barriers” to local health-care needs and residents are tired of being treated like “second-hand citizens.” “I am offended by it, and I know the community is offended by it.” Du Toit appeared before council at a c om m itte e - of - t he whole meeting to provide an update on IH service delivery to patients in the South Cariboo. District Councillor Ralph Fossum opened the proverbial can of worms when he asked why IH has continually refused a $230,000 donation for funding a local urologist – on its own enough to cover the equipment costs and about two years of operations. The community really needs this type of specialist, so many see it as a “no

brainer” to accept the South Cariboo Health Foundation’s (SCHF) generous offer to fund it, he explained. Du Toit said it has looked at this “high-profile” proposal in its 2014/15 financial plans and will “very definitely” review it again for 2015/16 – but there is simply no available operating funds from the ministry for “new programs.” Campsall was quick and forceful in pointing out the program is “not new” and had been in place locally before IH cancelled it, which “upset” the community. “[IH] does not have a good name in this community ... this program needs to be reinstated. We’ve got an organization offering to pay for operating and IH is putting up another wall.” Du Toit clarified that a program was here formerly, but it had limited ministry funding that was used up. He added that is also the problem with donations that will dry up down the road. The mayor said since IH can’t guarantee programs down the road either, it should reconsider or even match local funding so a urology program could run for four to six years. IH is “looking a gift horse in the mouth” by turning it down, and the community is “not going to go away” on this issue, he added. Continued on A5

Alysa Leclerc of Prince George participated in the Youth Muskrat Skinning & Boarding event held during the B.C. Trappers Association Convention at the Curling Rink in 100 Mile House on April 18. The three-day conference saw several hundred people attend, with many from out of the area.

Children nearly struck at school bus stop Local mother Jan Simpson says repeated near-misses with drivers not stopping for school buses and students are going to cause a tragedy if something is not done about it. “Our kids almost got mowed down [April 9] by a driver. I don’t think it gets through to some people that they have got to stop on both sides of the road.”

Six parents were standing guard at Perrey and Horse Lake roads after school while the bus was stopped in the west-bound lane and a group of Horse Lake Elementary School students crossed the road, she explains. Simpson says it then became clear an east-bound, elderly male driver was not going to stop, despite the bus’ flashing lights

and extended stop sign arm. “The car was just coming full speed ahead and the bus driver was honking.” The parents began yelling and waving arms while one father jumped in front of the car with his hand up and managed to attract the car driver’s attention, she explains. “It was a near miss.” Continued on A5

The South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce rang in another year of working with the local business community at its annual general meeting and luncheon in the Valley Room on April 16. Chair Carl Gimse, vice-chair Leon Chretien and secretary Ralph Myhill-Jones were acclaimed. In the chair’s speech, Gimse noted the monthly meetings include representatives from the District of 100 Mile House and the Cariboo Regional District, and the Chamber has an “excellent” working relationship with both. “We will continue to work hard to enhance the relationship that has

been built.” Gimse also recognized the diligent and helpful efforts of executive director Shelly Morton, who took over the job five months ago, and summarized some successful events she assisted the board with last year. The group will lose treasurer Keith Greenhalgh and director Sean Watson, who have stepped down after completing their terms, and director Len Doucette who resigned mid-term. Three new nominees – Joanne Young, Marvin Declare and Keith Jackson – were acclaimed. The executive will be installed at the annual board retreat slated for May 3. In her report, Morton noted the current membership is about the norm at 140, with a diverse range

of new members from all over the South Cariboo replacing some departed ones. She reminded businesses that members get free advertising on the website, and added the Facebook page is gaining in popularity and is successful in promoting community efforts. She thanked all the 2013/14 board members, and noted they are local business leaders who are also kept busy working for the community in other ways. “...Their volunteer efforts are the reason our Chamber-sponsored events, both big and small, take place.” Guest speaker District Councillor Spence Henderson updated the group on the status of business as seen at the District level, including

nearly $5 million in building permit values in 2014. “A strong U.S. dollar has already been having an impact at the [South Cariboo Visitor Centre]; they are busier than usual at this time of year.” He said 2015 should see “continued, robust construction spending” and commercial building is expected to remain particularly strong. “There’s one business that employs about 70-90 people, in Alberta up in the ... oilfields, and they are locating their head offices in 100 Mile because it’s a solid, economical place where the situation is good.” Other directors completing their current term are Rick Takagi, Craig Lee, Amanda Usher, Rainer Meyer, Rob Fry and Nick Christianson.

Further grass fires crop up A couple of grass fires just a day apart in the same Lone Butte neighbourhood have led to a cautionary note issued by the local fire chief. Lone Butte Fire Department chief Jon Grieve says his crew was called out two days in a row for fires near Horse Lake. A fire on Marlborough Road had six members, an engine and two

water tenders responding when a resident was burning grass and the fire got away from them just after 3:30 p.m. “It was roughly two acres and we did have BC Hydro on standby as there was a pole involved. It was a grass fire that got out of control.” The crew was on scene for a couple of hours, he notes. Grieve explains the following

day, crews returned to the area for a second grass fire, this time on McMillan Road, but it was quickly extinguished. “We remind people to just do due diligence and make sure they have the proper stuff there – water on hand and shovels – and that they are paying attention to the venting index ... they can check it out on bcwildfire.ca.”

This website also includes information on safe burning as well as how to prevent wildfires and “FireSmart” your property and home. Several recent grass fires have also been attended by fire departments from across the South Cariboo. Grieve adds this year is not shaping up for a good fire season. “It looks like it is going to be a very dry year.”

PARADE CLOSURE Council unanimously approved a request for a street closure on Birch Avenue for the Little Britches Parade on May 16. The parade will get underway at 10 a.m. and run north to south, but the traffic clearing and closure will begin a little earlier than that (no time was specified).

SAFE RIDES The Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School graduating class continues to fundraise for its Dry Grad party. Students will be providing a safe ride home for participants at the Oldtimers Hockey Association’s AGM and Wind-up Dinner on April 25. Sunrise Ford is supplying the vehicle.

ARTS BURSARY Students attending a full-time arts degree or diploma program this fall may apply to the BC Arts Council’s scholarship program until April 30 for up to $6,000. Professional halfday dance programs in conjunction with secondary school are also eligible. For information, visit www.bcartscouncil. ca/guidelines/artists/ youth/scholarship_ awards.html.

Cattlemen, loggers wrangle in tenure tiffs Natural boundary breach mitigation problems persist

Carole Rooney Free Press

A recent Forest Practices Branch (FPB) report on its investigations into how well forest licensees mitigate breaches in natural range barriers highlights ongoing problems with disputes and correspondence between mutual tenure holders. Particular areas of concern are assessment and implementation, stemming from poor communication and disagreements between range users (cattlemen)

Tidy up yards for pick up The District of 100 Mile House is encouraging residents to do their spring pruning and garden cleanup now, as District works staff will be pick up yard debris – branches, dead shrubs, clippings and the usual yard refuse – April 27-May 1. District staff will be out and about watching for these items to be set out along the boulevard by residents tidying their property, and will pick it up and compost it. No household garbage, furniture and appliances should be left out for this purpose and these will not be collected as part of this campaign. The District asks everyone to use this opportunity to help make the municipality more tidy attractive.

and forest licensees (forestry companies) about where and when mitigation is required, the report states. Locally, this has been a huge issue for South Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association (SCCA) members on their tenured rangelands for years, according to SCCA president Peter Bonter who says he “agrees 100 per cent” with the FPB findings. “We all seem to be working on different pages, and that is what the report brings out. There is such a lack of communication, both

intentionally and otherwise.” If forest companies have logging prescriptions with generic or ambiguous wording, it leaves a wide window of opportunity for dissension and argument between tenure holders on the same land base, he explains. Under the Forest and Range Practices Act, if forestry operations will impact a natural range barrier, the forest licensee must plan and implement measures to effectively mitigate this breach. Sometimes breaches

toward finding a resolution with “zero results.” The SCCA has clarified its stance in writing to ministry staff and timber companies, he adds. “Our position is that every barrier breach and remedy [for it] is evaluated on its own intrinsic values and that every [time] a brush fence seems the only solution possible, that will be arrived at under consensus with SCCA, and that all other avenues will be exhausted. “This is how we will do business in the South Cariboo and we cannot accept anything but.” Finding a solution to barrier breaches, fenc-

ing responsibilities and other issues on shared tenure lands is “absolutely paramount,” he adds. “All it takes is just some good, open and respectful communication.” On the side of the forest licensees, Interfor and Norbord lumber companies state they have no comment on this issue, and no response was received to requests for comment from West Fraser.

Health authority hears concerns

It would be lovely if IH “ money. could recognize how important

The community gave us all this

From A1

SCHF director Chris Nickless asked if two years’ operational funding isn’t enough, how much longevity would IH want to secure. Du Toit replied he could not answer that, but while the health authority “appreciates” the offer, programs have better success in the long term when it funds them internally, so IH will no longer depend on donated operational money for programs, which has “not gone well” in the past. After the meeting, Fossum noted Du Toit’s presentation highlighted the Ministry of Health’s position is that specialists need to be made more available to rural

Simpson says at least three children were almost hit, and the parent who jumped out had words with the driver. “The driver had asked him not to tell. But he said, ‘No, I’m sorry but you almost killed my children – I am damn well telling’,” she adds There are past tales about similar incidents, she notes. Simpson explains her neighbour witnessed this once already this year and now (normally) stands on the road, which has an 80 km/h speed limit, while the children cross. All drivers must

It was a local grassroots effort that found new urologists willing to participate and then raised the funds to get them here, she notes. “The community gave us all this money. It would be lovely if IH could recognize how important that is, and work with us.”

Administrative Professional Week April 19-25

Show your appreciation

Administrative professionals work hard to make businesses thrive

Since 1952, the last full week of April has been designated Administrative Professionals Week (formerly called Secretaries Week). Traditionally, bosses use this time to show their appreciation to their assistants for all of their hard work throughout the year.

To help bosses along (apart from giving the usual flowers and candy), several administrative assistants were willing to provide suggestions on how bosses can show their appreciation during Administrative Professionals Week. Each business relationship is different, so bosses may want to talk to their assistants first: • Give a nice gift basket; • Take her/him out for a nice, long lunch at

Sherry

a local fine restaurant; • Provide a morning at a local spa; • Give a gift certificate for a dinner for two or an evening at a hotel or resort; • Arrange for the afternoon off to go shopping and throw in a little spending money; • Provide a long distance calling card; • Arrange for a housekeeper for the day; • Book and pay to have the car tuned up and spring cleaned;

Lori Brodie is the friendly receptionist at the 100 Mile House Free Press.

Cheerful presence at the Free Press office The 100 Mile House Free Press is pleased to have Lori Brodie working as the front desk receptionist. Brodie is a beaming and delightful presence in the office. It is her friendly voice people hear on the phone and that smiling face visitors see when they walk through the door.

Brodie started at the Free Press in November 2013. She was an office manager and accountant in Surrey before relocating to the Cariboo two years ago. Born in Burnaby, the longtime Lower Mainland resident says she now enjoys the slower pace of rural life in 100 Mile House.

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

With a lighthearted laugh, she says, “I like the lack of traffic heading to work. I like the community. I think everybody I have met has been very friendly.” A job in reception, being “the front desk person,” is a nice transition for her, she adds. “I was getting tired of having my nose in numbers all the time [working in accounting]. This job is a more personal thing, a nicer blend of everything.” While often very busy, Brodie still enjoys taking the time to talk with customers when they walk in. In the newspaper world, folks call often, a lot of times just for general information. “I find it very nice to come to work. It’s nice to be able to help the people.”

Staff, students and parents at 100 Mile House Elementary School receive helpful and pleasant assistance from office secretary Dimps Horn. She has held this key role for almost five decades, while also working at her own family business, Watch Lake Lodge.

Dimps: school secretary extraordinaire Almost five decades in office, still going strong

Carole Rooney Free Press

Some folks may not realize that Enid “Dimps” Horn, an indispensable mainstay in the office at 100 Mile House Elementary School, has been there for 48 years. Over her decades as secretary in the school office, most of it working full time, Dimps says she has always loved her job and still does today. “It has been just good times – good friendships and watching the kids grow from little kindergarten kids to their ‘graduation’ year and going on [to secondary school].” Dimps explains she first started at the job in the fall of 1967 working under principal Cliff Orr after being hired and initially trained by vice-principal Ray Truant earlier

that spring. A lot of staff have come and gone during that time, but those two administrators were at her school for years and are still in the community today, she notes. “Cliff Orr was probably my principal for 25 years.” When she took on the role, Dimps was fresh out of Vancouver Vocational School, which she attended for two years after graduating Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School in 1965. Born and raised in the South Cariboo, she has also spent her whole life in a key role running the family business and ranch at Watch Lake Lodge – now as its sole proprietor – on top of her job at the school. “I worked full time for years, and then ... mom (Alice Horn) got hurt in the late 1970s, and so in the early ‘80s,

I traded jobs with the other secretary and I did the one day a week [shift] and she did the five. “It was a serious accident.... Mom wasn’t well, so I stayed at the lodge. I came home and did a lot of stuff while she recovered.” When she returned to take on more days at the school again, Dimps job-shared with another secretary there for two-and-a-half days each. Then later, she went back to one-daya-week for a while when her family duties at the lodge increased again, she explains. After her dad, Walter “Shorty” Horn, died in 2009, Dimps returned to full-time secretarial duties the following year, and continues to be at the school every day with a smile and a happy heart. “Not once in all these years have I had doubts

– it is a huge part of my life. I have made lifelong friends with the teachers and support staff.... “It is like my family, and I still have kids of kids [who were students] ... and there are even grandkids.” It is “kind of exciting and a good feeling” to hear from generations of past students, she explains. “I have people com-

ing in and registering their kids, and it is like ‘Dimps! You are still here’!” Dimps adds she still feels this way today, and has made no plans to do anything else with her weekdays. “I am still so happy and I look forward to going there every day. It is a great atmosphere; it’s a great school, and it’s just a good feeling.”

Alberta's advantage now disadvantage

“S

top mortgaging our future” has been a catchphrase for several decades. Usually, it has been directed by conservative fiscal hawks at the perceived excesses of the “tax and spend” liberal or socialdemocratic welfare state of the 1960s and 1970s. Yet in recent years, the worst culprits, in both the United States and Canada, have been on the right side of the political spectrum. And the worst of all may be right next door in the conservative paradise of Alberta. The “Alberta advantage” has consisted largely of using most of its resource wealth to subsidize both lower taxation and higher spending on services than found elsewhere in the country. Since the first full year of the Alberta Heritage Trust Fund (AHTF) in 1977, $216 billion in revenue accrued from non-renewable energy went into the fund; but of

GUEST SHOT

ince their formation in December 2001, regional health authorities in British Columbia have come under fire for their lack of sensitivity to the rural communities they serve. The formation of regional health authorities, including Interior Health (IH), was intended to give cohesiveness to medical-care services by merging smaller health authorities, and at the same time, save money by reducing health-care costs by eliminating duplication and bureaucracy. Unfortunately, the goal of the reducing the cost of health-care services, which continue to grow by leaps and bounds, has become one of the primary goals and rural centres are suffering because there have been cuts in service. IH is has been nipping away at services that have been in place for years. It has certainly heard its share of charges about insensitivity and calls for cutting its burgeoning bureaucracy before cutting rural services. 100 Mile House and area has experienced these cuts and our friends and neighbours are paying the price. There are a number of ongoing concerns for those who need health services in the 100 Mile House and the surrounding communities. They mostly involve being forced to travel for everything from giving birth and dialysis treatment to finding residential care beds. So, it was rather refreshing to read that District of 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall tore a strip off of a couple of IH representatives who came to a council meeting to inform the councillors of IH’s program funding in the community. The mayor told the IH spokespersons what a lot of rural communities in the province have been feeling over the years - “we’re being treated like second-hand citizens.” The confrontation between the community and IH has come to a head over the health authority continually refusing to accept a $230,000 donation from the South Cariboo Health Foundation (SCHF) to fund a local urologist – to cover equipment and two years of operation. It’s a service that was available locally at one time until IH cancelled it. Now, it is forcing residents – mostly seniors – from as far away as Bella Coola to travel to Kamloops to urology service. It's potentially dangerous and an unnecessary trip, especially in the winter, if SCHF had its way. The IH representative’s answer was it would definitely review it again in 2015/16. This health authority needs to review its penchant for making cookie cutter solutions for health care. Our population is aging and IH has to start thinking outside the box to correct issues in our rural communities.

of sales taxes, the lowest corporate taxes in the country and the country’s only 10% flat income tax. The contrast with other jurisdictions is striking: Alaska, for example, continued to deposit 25% of its royalties from 1982 to 2011, and Norway contributed 100%. If Alberta had followed the Alaskan formula, by 2011 the AHTF would have had $42.4 billion instead of $9.1 billion. By the Norway rules, Alberta would have had $121.9 billion by 2011. Now, the Alberta government has to scramble because of low oil prices. Premier Jim Prentice needs to show that he is another premier Lougheed and not another premier Klein. Future generations of Albertans are counting on it. Mark Crawford teaches Government at Athabasca University.

Gain knowledge about seniors’ rights To the editor: The purpose of this letter is to empower seniors and their families with knowledge that is crucial to have when standing up for their right to be protected from abuse or neglect in a senior care facility. It will enable them to demand a better quality of care afforded them by Bill 17 – Residents Bill of Rights (RBR). Residential care facilities are governed under two different

licensing acts – the Hospital Act (HA) and the Community Care and Assisted Living Act (CCALA). Every person in residential care – private or government-owned, subsidized or not, under the HA or the CCALA, are to be protected under the RBR. Inform the facility management you are aware of this. There is a list of “20 reportable incidents” for those living under the CCALA. Neglect, falling and choking are three of them.

Section 77 of the CCALA requires the facility to report any of these incidents to the resident’s representative, nurse, and the regional medical health officer immediately. An incident report must then be sent to the Community Care Licensing Office (CCLO) immediately. A confidential complaint can be made by residents or their representatives to the Patient Care Quality Office. They have 40 days to report

Tories should be eliminating greenhouse gas emissions To the editor: Newspapers reported the world needs to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 40-70 per cent by 2050. Without being pessimistic, I don’t think the countries of the world can reach any serious agreement on this as long as countries, such as Canada, keep destroying our efforts towards this objective.

If they were asked, most Canadians would refuse to jeopardize so seriously the future for the limitless enrichment of a few. However, this would be democracy – real democracy – something very different from what we now have in place. Bruno Marquis Gatineau, Quebec

Festival of the Arts ‘amazing’

To the editor: I am amazed at what is being achieved with our local Festival of the Arts. The manifest evidence of excellent teaching by our local committed music and speech arts teachers is outstanding for such a small community.

back to you with the results. A confidential complaint can also be made to the CCLO by anyone including employees. When making a complaint to anyone, always get your case worker’s name and your case file number. That will be a strong indicator you are expecting a result and increase your chance of getting one. An employee cannot be fired or penalized in any way, under the Adult Guardianship Act.

People can also report abuse or neglect to the Ombudsman at 1-800-567-3247 or the Senior Health Care Support Line at 1-877952-3181. I welcome a letter from anyone who wishes to share their experiences with a senior facility. They will be used as evidence against the government. Judy Galley Sorrento, B.C.

Privatizing hospital laundry service would be wrong

To the editor: We would like to provide some information regarding the proposed privatizing of our 100 Mile District General Hospital’s laundry services. In 2003, a good friend of ours was in Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops in his last days of terminal cancer. He was upset he had been in the same pyjamas for several days. He was also cold and the nurses were unable to provide him with a blanket. When we asked the nursing staff why he was not permitted a blanket or clean pyjamas, we were told the laundry had

not been returned from an Alberta cleaning facility. We were shocked to hear that soiled laundry from the Kamloops hospital was being sent to Alberta and not being cleaned in the hospital’s own laundry facility. Beside the fact that transporting soiled and contaminated laundry all the way to Alberta is not a good idea, there would also be a need for the hospital to purchase more of all laundry items to ensure it did not run out of existing materials, until such time as the cleaned laundry was returned. In addition, we find it totally wrong to move soiled laundry out of the hospitals for health reasons. As well, and equally as important, 100 Mile House is already facing a long, economic down-

turn, no matter what we are told in the news. You just need to visit the town and see all of the stores that have been closed down (some for many years). To remove the laundry from our local hospital is absolutely ridiculous as far as we are concerned, as the staff members who are providing this much-needed service are working members of our community whose children attend the local schools and the families support the remaining local businesses. How is this plan to help the economy of the devastated 100 Mile area? We strongly urge that this plan to privatize the laundry service be reconsidered. Allan and Linda Bishop Interlakes

BC VIEWS

he B.C. Liberal government’s sale of Crown properties to help balance its election budget was the dominant story in the legislature last week, as the NDP revealed evidence of a “fire sale” that may have left millions on the table. They started with Burke Mountain, the biggest single deal involving 14 view properties in Coquitlam. The buyer was a prominent developer whose array of companies happened to donate nearly $1 million to the BC Liberal Party since 2000. The $85-million price tag was similar to the BC Assessment Authority value on these forested properties, but an outside appraisal concluded they could have fetched an additional $43 million if they had spent more time on the hot Lower Mainland real estate market. (This sale made headlines last fall for the province’s $8-million buyout of the local First Nation’s undefined territorial claim, when it was revealed the chief of the tiny Kwikwitlem First Nation pocketed an $800,000 commission.) The government’s defence of the sale

De Jong cited another big health property in Vancouver that sold for more than its appraised and assessed value. It’s only the actual market that determines worth, he insisted. But it’s now clear that these and perhaps other sales were done with arbitrary deadlines that had everything to do with the B.C. Liberals’ need to balance the books. When elections are a battle of sound bites, perception matters more than reality. It’s also worth recalling the budget deficits prior to the 2013 election were largely a result of the B.C. government’s costly undoing of the harmonized sales tax, rather than the harsh forces of international finance. Surplus asset sales have a long tradition in British Columbia, where the government owns more than 90 per cent of all land. But after this round, full disclosure will be demanded.

the province RCMP reconsidering move of police helicopter KAMLOOPS - Plans to fly the Kamloops-based RCMP Air 4 police helicopter permanently north to Prince George appear to be in a holding pattern. Following a meeting with Mayor Peter Milobar last month, RCMP brass agreed to re-visit the decision to have Air 4 based out of Prince George. “I haven’t had any updates since it was put on hold,” Milobar told KTW. In February, the RCMP announced plans to move Air 4 to Prince George, noting the entire northern region of B.C. is without a police chopper. Under that plan, an RCMP helicopter would remain based in Kelowna to service the Southeast District, which includes Kamloops. But, Milobar noted, a previous RCMP internal review said Kamloops was the best southern Interior location for a police helicopter. RCMP Staff Sgt. Rob Vermeulen said the locations of helicopters is being discussed with government officials, policing partners and others. “B.C.’s air-services fleet are strategically placed throughout B.C. in order to support our policing services and unique geography,” he said. Man with stocking over face attacks woman KELWONA - Mounties are looking for the man who attacked a woman in the early hours of Feb. 7, as she walked down Harvey Avenue. The Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of an assault on Harvey Avenue near Burtch Road, Feb. 7 at 5:12 a.m. "A 21-year-old Kelowna woman was walking eastbound on Harvey Avenue when an unknown man approached her from behind, placed his arm around her neck and lifted her off her feet," said Cpl. Joe Duncan. "The young woman fought and screamed, which ultimately resulted in the man releasing her and fleeing the scene on foot on Chandler Street. The woman suffered minor physical injuries but did not require medical attention." Anyone with any information who has yet to speak with police is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

Making highway travel safer in 100 Mile House

Ken Alexander Free Press

In conjunction with the 100 Mile House RCMP, Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE) inspectors conducted a 6.5-hour safety check in front of the 100 Mile Marsh on April 14. Noting the CVSE has the mandate to check both commercial and private vehicles, local vehicle inspector Peter Shearer says the goal is to help make British Columbia’s highways safe for the travelling public. When the CVSE sets up at a site, he adds inspectors check both the drivers and the vehicles to ensure they are up to regulated standards as established by the province. “We inspect any vehicle that looks like it may

Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement vehicle inspectors and local RCMP Traffic Services members pulled several commercial and private vehicles over on Highway 97 across from the 100 Mile Marsh on April 14. After inspections, some vehicles received “pass” papers, others received “notice and orders” to ensure mechanical deficiencies and driver documentation were up to regulation, and some vehicles were towed.

have mechanical deficiencies.” Shearer notes they had six commercial vehicle inspectors at the roadside block along with four members of the RCMP traffic services (two at all times). He adds violation

tickets, which carry financial penalties, were handed out. Shearer says they also issued “notice and orders,” which could be for mechanical problems that need to be repaired with in a certain time.

Sometimes, he adds, the problems have to be fixed that day or within two weeks or up to a month depending on the issues. The “notice and issues” could also be for driver deficiencies, such as updating driver’s

licences and registration names and the like, he explains. “The ‘notice and orders basically direct the driver to do certain things that are required for a deficiency.” Some of the drivers who are pulled over and checked out fine and sent on their way and may be issued paperwork that shows their vehicle passed, Shearer notes. “In the event the vehicle is deemed unsafe at the time of inspection and there are certain serious violations under the Motor Vehicle Act, we will have a vehicle removed from the road. “ These vehicles would have to undergo a provincial vehicle inspection prior to being allowed to return to the road.” Shearer says he knows

report 100 Mile House RCMP responded to 88 complaints and calls for service during the past week. Below are highlights of the week’s calls. Roadside prohibition At 12:20 a.m. on April 20, a vehicle was stopped on Highway 97 near Lac la Hache after being advised that the driver was possibly impaired. The driver, a 40-yearold 100 Mile House resident, displayed symptoms of alcohol consumption. An approved screening device test was completed during which the driver provided a sample of his breath. The result was a fail.

He was served an immediate roadside prohibition (IRP) for 90 days and the vehicle he was operating was impounded for 30 days. Excessive speeding At 10:45 a.m. on April 19, a vehicle was stopped on Highway 97 near Alpine Avenue for speeding 46 km/h over the posted speed limit. The driver, a 25-yearold Chilliwack man, was issued a violation ticket for excessive speed. As a result, the vehicle he was operating was impounded for seven days. Road rage On April 17, 100 Mile House RCMP were advised of an incident involving two motorists who were travelling on Highway 97 in Lac la Hache. Both drivers took exception to each

other’s driving and a physical confrontation occurred, which allegedly resulted in the driver of the GMC truck being punched by a male operating a motorcycle. The male operating the motorcycle reported the incident to police. Police did not receive a report from the other man involved and this person’s identity is not known. Drinking and driving At 12:10 p.m. on April 15, a vehicle was stopped for having no licence plate on Alder Avenue in 100 Hundred Mile House. The driver, a 24-yearold 100 Mile House man displayed symptoms of alcohol consumption. An Approved Roadside Screening test was com-

pleted where the male provided a sample of his breath, and the result was a warn. The driver was served a three-day immediate roadside prohibition. Prohibited driving Around 1:10 a.m. on April 14, RCMP stopped a vehicle Highway 97 near Lac la Hache for no rear lights. The driver, a 52-yearold 100 Mile House woman, was found to be

prohibited from driving under the Motor Vehicle Act. The woman was issued an appearance notice for court at a later date and her vehicle was impounded for seven days. Fire-lighting mischief At 8:15 p.m. on April 14, RCMP attended to a report of an outdoor fire located at a residence in the 5000 block of Timothy Lake Road. Continued on A13

District plans asset ate management review Gathering to celebr e of

Carole Rooney Free Press

The District of 100 Mile House council approved an application to proceed to the Union of BC Municipalities Asset Management program at a recent council meeting to secure a $10,000 grant. If approved, the matching grant will see the District kick in the same amount for a $20,000 investment that will include a TRUE Consulting study of its current asset management process. District director of engineering and community works Phil Strain says the study will culminate in a report with recommendations for improvement opportunities in the processes that lead to things like infrastructure upgrades. This will result in streamlined processes, such as those in the communications, interactions and sharing of data between the various departments, he notes. “It’s looking at how the different departments work together, [such as] public works

and finance and planning processes.” Strain says the provincial government has also mandated that municipalities demonstrate good and progressive asset management beginning in 2016 if they wish to secure Small Community Grants. “It’s crucial for future grant opportunities that we have this asset management review done and keep it updated.” The province wants to ensure communities accessing funding are undertaking necessary asset upgrades, not just sitting back while infrastructure crumbles, he explains.

Corbetts inducted in Spa Hall of Fame

LIFE IS SHORT DREAM BIG WITH WLDCU!

Carole Rooney Free Press

The Hills Health Ranch founders Pat and Juanita Corbett are among the first inductees – and the only Canadians – to be honoured in the inaugural Spa Hall of Fame launched by the Washington Spa Alliance. Pat says they were both “shocked” for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is being singled out by a huge, United States-based spa organization. “It is a big deal. We are honoured and humbled by it ... to be a part of the first inductee group is quite stunning.” To be placed in the same category with several illustrious spas, which he and Juanita know the owners personally, and what they have accomplished, is also staggering, he explains. “To have us with them just adds to the humbling experience of it all.” The Spa Hall of Fame’s inaugural Class of 2015 includes spa founders, visionaries and distinguished contributors – from a professor at Cornell University to a spa historian/author with Fodor’s vacation guides. The Corbetts travelled to Washington, D.C. to be recognized for lifetime achievement along with seven others at an induction ceremony at the National Press

Pat says they attribute this recognition to The Hills Health Ranch and its “amazing” staff. “Nothing this big comes about from the efforts of just two people. It only happens when a group of dedicated people are working together to bring about an amazing outcome.” The Spa Hall of Fame will live as a virtual museum at www.wash ingtonspaalliance.com.

It was determined the resident, a 34-year-old Lac la Hache woman, was purposely setting numerous fires on the property. Lac la Hache Volunteer Fire Department members attended and extinguished the fires before they could spread further. However, the woman continued to attempt to light further fires and add additional fuel sources to the already existing fires even when told to stop by responding firefighters. As a result, the

woman was arrested for mischief and lodged in cells overnight. She was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. Alcohol was a factor in this incident. Information needed Anyone with information regarding any of these incidents or any suspicious activity, can report it to the 100 Mile House RCMP Detachment at 250-395-2456 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS) or online at www.bccrimestoppers. com.

A special meeting was held April 9 at the 70 Mile Community Hall with ThompsonNicola Regional District (TNRD) representatives Ron Storey, Such Gill and Carolyn Black present. The coverage area for 70 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department funding was identified and these properties were used in the calculations to determine the amount of increases in taxes. It was pointed out that many properties with “lower” assessment values would see no increase, while “higher” assessments would get increases of $1.53 per $1,000

Well on the Way a great community resource

MARDI GRAS HAPPINESS

South Cariboo Community Planning Council (SCCPC) executive director Lea Smirfitt wants folks to know Well on the Way – a great community resource newsletter – is available on the District of 100 Mile House website (www.100milehouse.com), as well as on the sites of some of the SCCPC members. “We know many people have difficulty finding information about our community

resources, so please share this information with folks you know who may be looking for community services and events,” Smirfitt says. A new issue with updated information is available to the public every two months. A SCCPC volunteer delivers printed copies of Well on the Way to many locations in town, so people have an opportunity to view the information while waiting for appointments.

For the online version, go to www.100milehouse.com, click on Community Links, scroll down to South Cariboo Community Planning Council and open the newsletter’s PDF file. “Please take a moment to enjoy the artwork on the front cover created by one of our many talented community artists who showcase their art on a regular basis at Parkside Art Gallery.”

Folks who would like information sent out via the regular e-mail broadcast can send their information to lea. smirfitt@gov.bc.ca with a note to broadcast this message to the SCCPC e-mail broadcast recipients. Smirfitt notes the SCCPC office is staffed nine hours per week from Tuesday to Thursday, so people need to allow enough lead time to be sure their messages are timely.

New and improved services sits at approximately a seven per cent increase and includes two large capital projects, which were approved through 2014 referenda (North Cariboo Arena Replacement project and the Sam Ketcham Pool upgrade in the Central Cariboo). For existing services throughout the region, there is an overall decrease of one per cent. Budgets will be posted on the CRD

website next week at cariboord.ca.

Rodeo funding The CRD Electoral Areas G, H and L will be accessing $50 each from their Special Projects funds to sponsor the 100 Mile & District Outriders Club’s Little Britches Rodeo. This year’s event is being held May 16-17. More information about the Little Britches Rodeo is available online at 100mileoutriders.com/ rodeo.html. Lone Butte funding The CRD approved a request for up to $6,600 of Community Works Funding for the Lone Butte Historical Association.

Celebration for Citizen of the Year Richard Bergen

250-791-5232

By Doris E Rufli

Many people in and around Forest Grove were rooting for Richard Bergen to win Citizen of the Year honours at the South Cariboo Business Excellence Awards and Citizen of the Year gala dinner on April 11, and were overjoyed when the news broke. The 50+ Club celebrated Richard’s award-winning victory in style during its weekly Wednesday meeting at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #261-Forest Grove on April 15. Richard was “outfitted” with a crown and cape, furnished with the words – “This Is What Awesome Looks Like”

and “Citizen of the Year 2014.” Additional captions included the various “hats” he puts on throughout the year – from the obvious such as Fire Dispatch, Cemetery Maintenance and Walking Club to the more obscure, including Gopher Hunter,

Recycling Guru and All Round Snow Shoveller. Even his past accomplishments as an athlete were acknowledged. He was presented with a cake, stating “Congratulations, Citizen of the Year.” Doris E Rufli is the Forest Grove correspondent.

They set a league record with 25 wins in 30 games, skated to a hard fought provincial championship, and had a top national tournament in their sights, their ultimate goal. The Northern Cougars of Prince George, with three local girls on the roster, were two wins away from representing the Pacific Region at the 2015 ESSO Cup in Red Deer, Alta., which is underway until April 25. Unfortunately, a powerhouse team looking to make its seventh straight Esso Cup appearance stood in their way – the Edmonton Thunder. The Female Midget AAA clubs went head-tohead in a best of three series in Edmonton, April 3-4. The Cougars' season ended with 3-2 and 3-1 losses. Forward Cassidy Mellott and goalie Emilie Nichols were members of the Cougars all season, while the team called up Cailey Mellott, Cassidy's younger sister, to play with the club during the British Columbia championship and the Pacific Regional series. Cailey scored the first goal of the series in Edmonton, with an assist by Cassidy. Game 1 went into triple overtime. Nichols was injured during the Cougars provincial championship series win against the Fraser Valley Phantom on March 22, and was happy to suit up again as the backup goalie in Edmonton. “I think those were two of the best games I've seen our team play all year,” Nichols says. “It was so exciting, being on that bench, feeling the vibes off everyone and how we all want this. It just wasn't enough.” Nichols had an incredible run in net when the

Lac la Hache's Emilie Nichols had a phenomenal year in goal for the Northern Cougars, a provincial AAA midget champion team out of Prince George.

team's starting goalie, Kelsey Roberts, went down with an injury early in the season. In 17 regular season games, Nichols' record was 15-2, with a goals against average of 1.5 per game. Looking back on the year, Nichols says it was a real confidence booster for her. She's mentally and physically stronger now. At 16, she still has one year left of minor hockey eligibility. “[Having this kind of year] makes you think you can go further in life. For myself, I thought I was going to be done hockey after last season in 100 Mile. [But] I want to go further. My big goal is to make it to the Olympics if I can.”

Cassidy, 17, scored six goals and eight assists in her final regular season of minor hockey. She's hoping to continue to play as she pursues a postsecondary education. “Playing my last year of minor hockey [with the Northern Cougars] was definitely one of the best things I could have done,” she says. “To get that opportunity to get past the B.C. championships and go on to the Pacific Regionals is not something that happens all the time. That was a really cool opportunity. Just to have the chance to play with all these girls in my last year was awesome as well. I had awesome teammates to play with.”

Before dozens of young cowboys and cowgirls start roping and riding in the the 49th Annual Little Britches Rodeo, the Western Week Parade is rolling down Birch Avenue. Families are invited to take in the spirited, western-themed parade starting at 10 a.m. on May 16, and visit the 100 Mile House & District Outriders grounds after that for two days of rodeo action. Barrel racing, steer riding, mutton bustin', goat tail tying, break away roping and pole bending are just some of the fun events planned. Spectators are encouraged to wear pink for breast cancer awareness on May 17.

Tons of talent on display at Wranglers camp Gaven Crites Free Press

Wranglers coach Dale Hladun is on a mission to turn 100 Mile House into Hockey Central – “a true Hockeyville of the North”. If the success of last weekend's Spring Prospects Camp is any indication, the coach affectionately known as “Duner”, is started in the right direction. Close to 70 skaters, including about a dozen returning Wranglers and many players from northern British Columbia, hit the ice at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre for the three-day camp organized by the local Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club from April 17-19. Scouts from other programs, including the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), were also in attendance. And while Hladun did have his eye on all the potential talent looking to fill

“I want [the 100 Mile House program] to be recognized as helping players to attain where they want to go,” Hladun explains. “I think the kids are going to have a lot of opportunities. I'm pretty proud about that. It's pretty cool when the Junior A guys are excited to get players out of our camp.” The skill level was good and the pace was fast, especially in the all star game on April 19, the coach adds.

Soccer season is underway in 100 Mile House, with regional high school championships right around the corner. Junior and senior girls teams from Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School hosted Lake City Secondary School from Williams Lake on April 10 in 100 Mile House. The two schools split

the four games, with the local juniors scoring two wins and Williams Lake coming out on top twice against the seniors. In Game 1, the PSO juniors won 3-2, erasing a 2-1 deficit in the second half. Sydni Poggenpohl scored the tying and winning goals and Ashley Holyk scored the first. Allison

Carr was the winning goaltender. In Game 2, the PSO juniors won 4-1, with Holyk notching two goals. "The juniors showed a lot of potential, which looks good for the future of the program,” says 100 Mile House coach Sean Glanville. “Both Sydni and Ashley are only in Grade 9, and both can really hit a ball. Having natural scoring touch is a rarity at this level." On the seniors' side, Williams Lake won Game 1, 3-1, and Game 2, 5-0. Kaylee Lund scored for 100 Mile and Megan Easton had a great game at central defender. “The Lake City Secondary School senior girls are solid

and have six or seven girls from the team that won a Provincial B Youth Cup a year ago.” PSO had some solid performances as well and the four games were a good oppor-

tunity to evaluate all the players ahead of a Williams Lake tournament, May 1-2, and the North Central Zone Championships in Prince George, May 10-12, the coach adds.

There have been many recent news stories about the re-emergence of childhood diseases that have not been an issue for years. When I was a kid, every student in school was vaccinated against diseases like Rubella, mumps and measles. My parents never lost sleep worrying whether my brother or I would suffer the devastating and crippling consequences of polio. Not too long ago, smallpox wiped out entire communities. The development of vaccines made those diseases a distant memory. Now these diseases exist only in the most underdeveloped and marginalized parts of the world where children do not receive vaccines. In North America, the practice of administering vaccinations to children is becoming a hotly debated topic. So how does this apply to our pets? Many pet owners are becoming concerned about the effects of vaccinations for their animals and some are choosing not to vaccinate their animals. The history of pets is not unlike that of humans. Your grandparents or great-grandparents likely had siblings or

friends who became crippled from polio or who died from another childhood ailment. Similarly, these same people almost certainly had a dog that died of distemper, as tens of thousands of puppies did before they reached their first birthday. Those dogs that managed to survive often had severe and lasting problems, including seizures. Pets died from rabies and, in the 1970’s and 1980’s, countless dogs died from parvovirus—before a vaccine was developed to prevent this disease. When we don’t have direct experience with something, we often dramatically underestimate the risk. Such is the case with vaccines. Anyone whose pet has experienced a vaccine reaction (usually a swollen face, itching, vomiting or lethargy) recalls the experience. But hardly anyone today has lost a pet to distemper. Why? Because we vaccinate. What many people don’t realize is that vaccines protect not only the animal (or person) vaccinated, but they also protect unvaccinated individuals. This is called “herd immunity”. When the vast

majority of a population (either four legged or twolegged) is protected against a disease, it lowers the risk for infection for everyone in that group. Because fewer individuals are susceptible to the disease, even those that are not vaccinated are less likely to encounter the disease, and therefore less likely to become ill. So what happens when fewer individuals are vaccinated? These diseases are always waiting in the wings to infect unprotected populations. This effectively turns back the clock and history repeats itself. I did volunteer vet work in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina, an area where many dogs are not vaccinated and are not on heartworm prevention. So what did I see? A dozen or more cases of canine distemper. In almost 20 years of veterinary practice, I have only seen one other case. Almost all the dogs were also infected with heartworms, which is a potentially fatal parasite. Unvaccinated dogs can also be exposed to distemper from infected wildlife, such as fox and raccoons. Rabid dogs from northern Canada have also been transported to metropolitan areas with dire consequences. For pets that do have a history of vaccine reactions, or those with immune system issues, there are reasonable alternatives, such as antibody titre tests, which use a blood sample to measure animal’s level of immunity to a specific disease. For the rest of us, vaccine protection is the best insurance policy.

“There are six schools competing at zones and I think a bronze medal is an attainable goal. The season is always geared towards zones,

so for that event we will be playing our strongest team, combining our best juniors and seniors. We should be very competitive."

Hard work done, time to display talent

All of the performances for the 100 Mile Festival of the Arts, which ran April 13-23, are done today and adjudicators have offered invitations to some performers to display their talent at the grand finale – the Festival Showcase 2015. Festival committee co-chair Marilyn Buyar says organizers are expecting a full house for the concert at at Martin Exeter Hall on April 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. The four adjudicators have selected the award winners, and from this list, they have chosen several performers who will provide the audience with an overview from all of the musical and speech arts categories. On April 17, Musical Theatre participants brought high energy to their performances. Dressed in imaginative costumes, they sang selections from shows, such as Wicked, Les Miserables, Matilda, Little Mermaid and many other familiar musicals. The Festival Showcase audience will be treated to performances in this category from Mia Weir,

which enabled them to see the progress the participants made since last April, and they provided meaningful encouragement in their adjudication comments, she adds. “Colleen Whidden, our vocal adjudicator, brought an infectious energy to all the vocal sessions, and had the young performers up on the stage after their performances, as she guided them through techniques to improve their skills.” Buyar says organizers know that before the applause, there have been months of practice and hard work on the part of teachers, students and supportive family members. “We have quite a wonderful community of artists in 100 Mile House.” Audience members will be able to buy Festival T-shirts, and tickets for a cash draw to support Key It Up! – a fundraising program recently launched to raise $30,000 to replace the old piano in Martin Exeter Hall.

Canadian Cancer Society asks for support

For the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), the daffodil is more than a simple flower. This bright and hopeful symbol shows people living with cancer they don’t have to face cancer alone, and that we won’t give up until we have achieved our vision of a world where no Canadian fears cancer, says Lynnette Wray, CCS financial support program team lead in the Southern Interior Region. During April – Daffodil Month – the CCS urges all Canadians to buy a daffodil pin and wear it to show their support for those living with cancer. “We celebrate the ‘power of the flower’ all year round, but April is really our time to shine. When loved ones are diagnosed with cancer, we often want to do something to help or honour them. This April, we want people to know that there is something they can do.” 100 Mile residents can support Canadians living with cancer by buying and wearing a pin. Every donation made during the CCS’ April Daffodil Campaign brings everyone one step closer to preventing cancer, detecting it earlier, improving treatment and helping Canadians live longer, healthier lives. Last year, thanks to everybody’s generous support of Daffodil Month, the CCS was able to fund $45 million in world-class research to fight all cancers and help more than 85,000 Canadians through its information and support services, Wray says. The society also funds important cancer prevention work so fewer Canadians are diagnosed in the first place, she adds. “In April, we like to focus on the support programs that help people in 100 Mile House on a cancer journey – from the Lodge Kelowna, where patients can stay during cancer treatments, to the financial support

program that helps pay for their travel expenses to get there.” Of the five different regions in the BC/ Yukon Division of the CCS, the Southern Interior Region is the largest user of the financial support program. Since September 2010, more than 1,500 clients have been approved for

a total of more than $700,000 in funding. “Our region is the biggest user of the financial support program for several reasons,” explains Wray. “We’re very geographically dispersed and patients often have to travel long distances for cancer treatment in Kelowna or Vancouver.

“For example, a patient in Cranbrook might need specialized treatment they can only get in Vancouver. That’s 958 kilometres with limited low-cost transportation options and

barriers, such as mountain passes and winter weather. “I’m proud to be a part of the CCS because I think with the help of our amazing volunteers and generous donors we’re making a real difference in the lives of people on their cancer journey.” The daffodil pin is available by donation at various businesses, including Donex, Pharmasave, Canada Post and the BC Liquor store, in 100 Mile House throughout April. “I love the support our small community gives without thought or question to this very worthwhile cause,” says local Daffodil Month co-ordinator Heidi Meier. “Let’s make this our best year yet. Thank you to each and every one who purchases one tiny flower; your contribution doesn’t go unnoticed.”

FAST bytes • The CCS is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life of people living with cancer. • While cancer takes a huge toll on Canadians it’s important to remember that progress has been made against this disease. In the 1940s, the survival rate was 25 per cent. Today, more than 60 per cent of Canadians diagnosed

with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis, thanks in large part to Societyfunded cancer research. • The survival rates for some cancers are much higher – with childhood cancer at 83 per cent, breast cancer at 88 per cent and prostate at 96 per cent.

Obituaries JANZEN Peter

Oct. 02, 1934 – April 15, 2015

With great sadness our family regrets to announce the passing of Peter Janzen. He died peacefully on the morning of April 15, 2015. He leaves to mourn his loving wife of 56 years Maria, his brother Hank (Lorrie) and 5 daughters; Monika (Ross), Liz, Lili, Marlene (Ray) and Alice. Peter will be missed by his 7 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and many friends. Peter met Maria in 1955 and then made his journey to Vancouver, BC. Maria soon joined him there and they married on March 14, 1959. It was in Vancouver that Peter started his construction company, “Safeway Construction Ltd”, as well as his family of 5 girls. In 1972 he uprooted this family and moved to 100 Mile House. His business thrived while he managed to build many houses locally as well as the Seniors Housing Complex in town. Peter built a beautiful cabin of their own on Hot Fish Lake where he spent many hours fishing and enjoying the peaceful outdoors. He will be sadly missed; however, forever loved and remembered by family and friends. Maria and her family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Nicholson and the wonderful staff of Fischer Place for the loving care that Peter received during his stay with them. A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, April 24, 2015 at 2 p.m. at 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. with pastor Gary Forsyth officiating. A burial at the 100 Mile Cemetery will follow the Funeral Service and there will be a reception back at the Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Peter’s memory to a charity of your choice. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements. 250-395-3243 Condolences can be sent to the family care of www.100milefuneralservice.com

he Class of 2015 Fashion Show had the Grade 12 students strutting their stuff in the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) gym on April 10, and it was a huge success, says Grad Committee chair Priscillia Remanente. “It was a fabulous event. The grad put on a great show and there was a lot of support from the community.” The clothes retailers and the hair salons were great to work with and they really made the fashion end of the show happen, she says, adding organizers appreciated all of the sponsors, volunteers and the PSO staff ’s help. Remanente also had praise for Angie Evans who “worked for months to get the show organized” and thanked Grade 9 student Reid Collinson who was an “amazing” volunteer. “The kids really liked the fashions and they put on a great show. It was entertaining and the event was a Dry Grad fundraiser through and through.” Because the event had a Mardis Gras theme, the grads sold beaded necklaces. Organizers held a 50/50 draw, and when the dust settled, they raised $2,500. The grads also provided a complimentary refreshment table, which was included in the $15 admission fee. Remanente also had great praise for Cinderella’s Closet, which is the school’s confidential service that provides any male or female grad student who needs

THE LONGEST RIDE Showtimes: 7:00PM Nightly

Starring: Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson, Jack Huston. Oona Chaplin, Alan Alda THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke and Sophia. Ira Levinson, ninety years old and already in poor health, is just holding on; remaining alert only because his wife Ruth, who has died, appears as an image to help him remember their life together. How they met, the paintings they collected and the dark days of WW2. Just a few miles away, Sophia, a Wake Forest college student’s life is about to change forever as she meets an unexpected love, Luke. Luke is a cowboy and risk-taking bull-rider, unlike anyone she has ever known. Two couples who have little in common, yet whose lives will converge with unexpected poignancy.

Paint-free ways to brighten your home

Many homeowners pick up their paintbrushes in an effort to make their homes more colorful. But homeowners need not embrace their inner Picasso to brighten their homes’ interiors. The following are a handful of paint-free ways to add some color to your home. • Bring nature inside. Flowers and plants can make colorful additions to a home’s interior. Flowers tend to be aromatic, which can make a stuffy house in which windows need to be kept closed a lot more pleasant. Plants and flowers also can improve indoor air quality. • Invest in some colorful throw pillows. Instead of buying new furniture, invest in some colorful throw pillows to give a room a more vibrant look. Patterns can be mixed and matched to provide some contrast and transform a room from somewhere to spend time into a sight to behold. • Paper the walls. While many of today’s homeowners prefer paint to wallpaper, those who want a less permanent solution to brighten up their homes may want to consider removable wallpaper. Such paper is less expensive than traditional wallpaper, and many do-it-yourselfers find removable wallpaper is easy to both install and remove. Choose a colorful pattern that can turn an otherwise plain wall into a potent palette that adds some life to your home’s interior. • Add some artwork. Another way to add color to the walls inside your home without dusting off your paintbrush is to hang some colorful artwork. Paintings that feature bold colors tend to draw your immediate attention when you enter a room, and that quality can make you forget the room is not benefitting from natural light. • Rug it out. A patterned throw rug is another accessory that can effectively brighten a room without much effort or financial investment on the part of homeowners. When choosing a throw rug, find one that’s colorful but does not clash considerably with existing furnishings, as you don’t want the rug to draw attention for all the wrong reasons. You have more freedom with regard to rugs if you’re furnishing an empty room, as you can choose whichever rug you look and then choose additional furnishings based on the rug.
