Lightening strike causes fire up Raft Times staff

Severe thunder storms and lightening on May 27 was the cause of a fire approximately 4.5 km up Silk Road. “That's (Silk Road) approximately 6.6 km up Park Road from the roundabout,” said Jim Jones, manager of Clearwater Fire Zone. “At 4:55 p.m. last Wednesday, there was a lightening strike in Larry Colborne's woodlot which was a winter logging block. It grew to approximately three hectares then went into the standing timber above the block for another three hectares.” said Jones. “The standing timber is riddled with dead pine.” “Two three-person Initial Attack crews were sent out. Wadleggers excavator was hired to open up the roads, and air tankers ringed the fire with mud and worked for a good hour or so,” said the Fire Zone manager. “Thursday morning a 20 man unit crew and two 3-person Initial Attack crews were on site, plus an excavator, dozer and two water tenders (trucks). By Thursday the fire was approximately 50 per cent contained and in patrol status by Saturday.” As of Monday crews continued to patrol the fire. “No hot spots have been found since Saturday, reported FPA Richard Swift. When asked if there were any new fires Swift reported there was a small one up Peddie Mountain and another one up the TFL. Both are extinguished.

BlackPress4Good collects donations for Cache Creek Barbara Roden, Black Press The Village of Cache Creek has turned to crowdfunding platform in order to raise money to assist in the aftermath of last Saturday’s disastrous flooding. “Lots of people were working on dif-

ferent fundraising projects,” said Cache Creek Councillor Wyatt McMurray, “and we decided that it needed to be focussed and under one umbrella.” He and several others began researching various crowdfunding platforms, and Carmen Ranta suggested a B.C. platform, which is based in Vancouver.

Blackpress4good. com crowdfunding is powered by Fundrazr, and promoted via local community newspapers. A committee was formed at the Council meeting on May 25, and the fundraising initiative received the approval of council. “If it goes through the Village then people

know it’s being properly collected and handled and dispersed,” said McMurray. “People want to give money and help,” he added. “This gives them one place to go to, where they know the money will be accounted for.” The committee will set criteria as soon as possible, such as how

to apply for some of the money raised. The committee will also decide who the recipients will be. More than 100 residents have been displaced from their homes, some of which could not be saved, and many people have lost almost everything. Due to the nature of the event, most people have been told their

losses are not covered by insurance. “This is purely for Cache Creek residents who’ve been affected,” said McMurray. “It’s not to pay for lampposts or park benches. One hundred per cent of the donations received will go to people in Cache Creek. None of it will go to the Village.”

“Did you know our proposed expansion follows the existing route for most of the way?” - Carey Johannesson, Project Lead, Land & Right-of-Way, Trans Mountain Expansion Project.

The proposed Trans Mountain Expansion follows the existing



route or other linear infrastructure for 90% of the way.


That means less than 100 kms needs to be moved to undisturbed lands. These reroutes will be made to improve safety and address environmental considerations, and will accommodate changes



in land usage since the pipeline was originally built in 1953. We’ve been talking with the public, stakeholders, landowners and Aboriginal communities along the proposed corridor to hear their concerns. We expect you will ask questions. We’ve made



adjustments in many places to address the concerns we’ve heard. Our intention in all of our planning is to minimize the impact on residents, communities and the environment, while ensuring that safe construction and operations are possible.

Thompson-Nicola Regional District Gaming grant puts more supports twinning of pipeline Clearwater youth in skates Adam Williams

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) supports the twinning of the TransMountain Pipeline. The board of directors overwhelmingly approved a motion of support for the project during its meeting May 28. Four directors were opposed — alternate director Donovan Cavers, mayor of Lytton Jessoa Lightfoot, Area I director Steven Rice and Area M director Randy Murray. The motion was brought to the board by Sun Peaks Mayor Al Raine. “I think it is important for the TNRD to take a position on this issue,” Raine said, noting the products are passing through the corridor regardless and it is important to ensure they are doing so in the safest possible manner. “I guess one could argue about all the issues with the environment, the tar sands,” he continued. “That’s not the issue with my motion. They’re going to be passing through the corridor, the pipeline is the best foreseeable option.”

Kamloops city Councillor Ken Christian seconded the motion. “Irrespective of how we feel about fossil fuels, we are still using fossil fuels,” he said. “We have to be conscious that, in a global society using them, there is an increasing need. Getting these products to people should be done in the safest way.” For Christian, that is the pipeline. Kamloops Councillor Arjun Singh also spoke in support of the motion, though he noted his support was not of continuing to use the pipeline in perpetuity. Cavers was the lone Kamloops councillor to speak against the motion. “There’s not much reason for the TNRD to be taking a stand on the political hot potato,” he said. “The elephant in the room is climate change. In general, our society needs to be moving away from using more and more fossil fuels.” He noted supporting the pipeline was, in essence, supporting 60 years of increased fossil fuel usage. Kamloops area director Mel Rothenburger recused himself from the vote as the pipeline passes through his property.

Submitted The Raft Mountain Skating Club of Clearwater has received $8,050 from the province’s Community Gaming Grants program. The club will use the funds for its skating lessons programs. “There are few things more ‘Canadian’ than learning to skate,” Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake said. “This grant will allow more young people in Clearwater to learn this great, healthy activity that encourages life-long physical fitness.” “These funds will ensure the Raft Mountain Skating Club can continue to offer skating lessons to the community at

an affordable level, thereby keeping it accessible to everyone,” Raft Mountain Skating club treasurer Chris Kreke said. “With few amenities for youth in our small town, it is important to offer the learnto-skate programs to our youth to keep them active and involved." Every year, the provincial government approves $135 million in gaming grants that benefit more than 5,000 local non-profit organizations that serve communities throughout British Columbia.  Organizations interested in applying for Community Gaming Grants can find information and applications at

Barriere Riding Club covers grandstand North Thompson Star Journal The Barriere and District Riding Club (B&DRC) held the first events of their competition season with a gymkhana on May 23, and a horse show on May 24. The unsettled weather over the weekend put the newest addition to the Light Horse area at the North Thompson Fall Fair facility to use – a beautiful new cover on the grandstand. The Light Horse show ring had the last uncovered grandstand on the fairgrounds, and the B&DRC decided it was time to provide some cover for spectators and competitors. This was made possible by a very generous grant from the Lower North Thompson Community Forest Society (LNTCFS), and in May, LNTCFS

secretary/treasurer, Martin Matthews joined B&DRC president Darcey Woods to unveil the completed project. Ruth Black headed up the project committee. Bob Black, Bob Brandenburg, John Gidinsky and Uli Migl completed the construction. The B&DRC say the time and efforts of these volunteers were greatly appreciated by the club, and will be for years to come as the enjoy the covered seating. In addition to the LNTCFS grant, donations were also received from Jim’s Market in Little Fort, Noble Tractor in Kamloops, and the Kamloops Large Animal Veterinary Clinic. Barriere and District Riding Club says a big thank you to all of their donors and amazing volunteers for such generous support of their organization.

Are public appeals for a live organ donor fair?


Not in favour of pipeline Editor, The Times:

I just don't understand how it has come to be that some mayors and councils on the North Thompson appear ready to accept cash offers from Kinder Morgan, before Canadians have even said yes or no to this project. In Langley mayor and council has refused this money to date, some citizens even calling it a "bribe." The Kinder Morgan website notes the following sums will be "to compensate for the disruption" during pipeline construction: Clearwater $390,000, Barriere

$290,000 and Vavenby, Birch Island, Black Pool, Blue River, Avola, Little Fort and Black Pines, $845,000. I have been coming to the North Thompson region for 50 years for business and pleasure. The sport and First Nations fisheries, and other river industries, are and always will be more economically important than the local valley pipeline industry. In fact the proposed new pipe is not for Canadians at all, but is a Texas company supplying China with tar sands bitumen. As a businessman and as an

enjoyer of the outdoors of the North Thompson, I can see only negative economic benefits coming from this tar sands pipeline. This is because tar sands bitumen is the worst polluting of all oils, and would coat the Thompson and Fraser river gravel and sloughs for 1,000s of miles and as we know from the Alaska and the Kalamazoo spills this oil would be unrecoverable and would kill the river for a generation or more. There have been many spills on the Trans Mountain pipeline and there will be many more, this is just another statistic. In my experience this company does its utmost to keep these spills from public view. I can forward a summary report of these past spills to concerned citizens who might wish to now present this to mayor and council (my email is

The public response to the appeal on behalf of Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Ottawa Senators hockey team, for a liver donor has been a heartwarming demonstration of the generosity of our community. Fortunately, a donor was found and the transplant was performed in time to save his life. But is it fair that he received a donation when many others are waiting, and dying, on the waitlist for a transplant? This is one of the common themes in the commentary in the news over the past few days. It is entirely understandable for those in desperate need to give up on the waitlist for a deceased donor and to reach out to their friends and family, and, if they are able to do so, to the public to find a live donor. There is perhaps an inescapable unfairness in all such appeals for live donors. Those with larger families and social circles may have a higher chance of locating a suitable donor. As for appeals to the public, those with wealth, fame, charisma or a particularly compelling story are likely to do better than those without these attributes because they are more appealing to the public or because they have better access to the means of effective mass communication. Although some are critical of public appeals for live organ donors, it is important to note that refraining from launching these appeals does nothing to help anyone. In fact, it may actually harm both people like Mr. Melnyk who hope to find a donor as well as others on the waitlist. There are several ways in which public appeals to help one specific individual might indirectly benefit others waiting for a transplant. When the topic of organ donation and transplantation attracts the public's attention, as it has done this week, more people tend to register their willingness to donate after death and to speak to their families about donation. This benefits everyone by increasing the availability of organs from deceased donors. It is important to remember that wealth and fame do not play a role in the allocation of organs from deceased donors in Canada, even if these factors might offer a platform from which to launch more successful appeals for

live donors. Second, some of those who have come forward to help Mr. Melnyk may be willing to help one of the other unknown Canadians facing a similarly desperate plight. In other words, Mr. Melnyk's public appeal may well save the lives of others who are less well-placed than he to command public attention. According to the most recent annual statistics from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, 374 Canadians were awaiting a liver transplant in 2012. In the same time period, 111 in need of a liver transplant died or were removed from the waitlist. It is hard not to notice that in only a couple of days this past week, 2,000 people responded to the appeal on Mr. Melnyk's behalf, and more than 500 sent in donor applications. This level of support could go a long way toward meeting the need for liver transplants in Canada. The ideal outcome in this case is a healthy recovery for Mr. Melnyk and for the person who donated to him, as well as - and as important - spillover benefits for the many others awaiting a transplant. This could be in the form of increased registration for deceased donation and perhaps live donation from some of the many people who stepped forward for Mr. Melnyk. In fact, 20 of the many potential donors who stepped forward are reported to have told surgeons they would like to donate to others in need. It is in our hands as members of the public to act to help the many unknown Canadians who are living among us desperately but quietly and anonymously awaiting a transplant. If we are troubled that the overwhelming response to celebrity appeals for live donors leaves these others unaided, there are steps we can take to help them too. It is a simple matter to register to donate after one's death.

Aboriginal Cultural Centre Society elects new executive Editor, The Times:

The North Thompson Aboriginal Cultural Centre Society held it's annual general meeting Sunday May 31, 2015. The annual general meeting was well attended. Information books and memberships were available at the start of the meeting. Elder Sam Saul opened the meeting with a welcome, introductions were made and the meeting was called to order. It was truly an inspiring meeting with everyone sharing in the excitement of the centre moving forward with the strategic 5-year plan for the Cultural/ Heritage Village. A full agenda with reports, a power-point presentation of the things the centre has accomplished over the past year, along with great food, made for a wonderful evening. We look forward to working hard in the community to bring cultural component to many community events over the summer. Be sure to save the date ... National Aboriginal Day celebrations at the Dutch Lake Community Center, Sunday June 21. Watch for more details. The cCultural centre has partnered with the

Wells Gray Gallery, and we have a wonderful display of local authentic Aboriginal arts for sale in the Gallery at the Information Centre in Clearwater. We also have a teepee set up at the Info Center and will be hosting cultural events and workshops throughout the summer months. Stop in at our "Tipi Treats" for a glass of ice cold lemon-aid, bannock, and others treats. Watch for our "Cultural Connections" news letter around town for information and upcoming events. For more information or to volunteer, or find out more about the Cultural Centre, please give me a call, 250-674-3703 or email, ntaboriginal. I would like to welcome our new board of directors: chair - Sam Saul, vice chair - David Sager, treasurer - Jean Bonner, secretary Joanne Stokes, and one year directors Marilyn Thompson and Al Fosseneuve Thank you to the past board of directors for all your hard work, and thank you to the community for all your support.

Modernizing the access to Information Act Editor, The Times:

Between elections, what tools can Canadians use to hold their federal government to account? One important tool is the Access to Information Act. You may not have heard of it, but it’s a vitally important law that lets any Canadian request information about what the government is doing, including just what our tax dollars are being spent on, and by whom. And even more importantly, it creates a legal responsibility for the government to provide the information. In March, Canada’s Information Commissioner released a special report containing 85 recommendations to update the Act. The current law has been in place since 1982 and without major reform since. It only makes sense that this law be adapted for the realities of the 21st century.

The first big recommendation is extending the Act; currently, many parts of government are not even covered. Some, like the House of Commons and Senate, are familiar to Canadians. Others, such as the Commissioner for Federal Judicial Affairs, are virtually unknown – even though their budget is over $500 million. There’s no good reason why these taxpayer-funded bodies are not covered. There’s little point in a transparency law that doesn’t follow much of the money in the first place. Another important recommendation would require the government to provide data in an “open, reuseable and accessible format.” The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) has on many occasions requested information, only to receive boxes of blurry, photocopied documents, which

were obviously printed off from a program like Excel. This is a pointless waste of everyone’s time, money and paper. Perhaps most importantly, the Commissioner suggests that when grants or loans are given to third parties – referred to in some circles as “subsidies” or “corporate welfare,” that the recipients not be permitted to withhold information about repayment. Under the current rules, many large corporations claim “commercial sensitivity” as a reason not to release details. To take just a single example of dozens, consider Mitel Networks of Ottawa, which received $60 million from the government in 2002. To this day, the company has refused to let the government disclose any information about repayment of that loan (if there has been any repayment).

Keep our walking trails clean Editor, The Times:

We are fortunate to have in and near our community of Clearwater, many delightful, quiet trails to walk with our dogs, our children or our grandchildren. One of my favourites is the trail to the point of land where the Clearwater and the North Thompson Rivers meet, and I am sure that many others enjoy it too. Until now it

In addition, the Commissioner recommends that government proactively publish information about all grants and loans given by government, including the status of repayment and compliance with any terms – rather than forcing Canadians to request the information first. Not every recommendation in the Commissioner’s report is a slam-dunk: opening the request system up to people outside of Canada, for example, seems unnecessary. But on balance, many would be big improvements. It may not be the sexiest political issue during an election year, but transparent and accountable government is extremely important in any democratic society.

YEARS AGO: TNRD approved the rezoning of 15 acres behind Wells Gray Hotel to allow development of a shopping center. The owners hoped to start developing the area by the following September. Clearwater area residents with an interest in business, tourism or flying were to have an opportunity to elect an airport committee to represent their interests during an upcoming TNRD feasibility study into airports in the North Thompson.


YEARS AGO: Negotiations between the North Thompson Sportsplex, CUPE Local 900 and School District 26 collapsed. "It's a pretty sad state of affairs when employees are told that, as a condition of settling the contract, they have to agree to let a non-union manager become a member of the union and do union work,” said Roger

Mayer, chairperson of the Sportsplex unit.


YEARS AGO: Staff sergeant Frank Baruta, the former NCO-in-charge of Clearwater RCMP, was the class's choice to give the commencement address at the CSS graduation. “You will never again all sit together, so enjoy each other today,” he said. North Thompson Aquatic Society had concluded that the only way Clearwater could have a public swimming pool would be to put a free-standing pool into the Sportsplex, said spokesperson Larissa Hadley.


YEARS AGO: Police estimated 200 persons, including CSS grads and many of their parents, attended a party at “The Farm” following the graduation prom at the Sportsplex. A roadblock netted one weapon seizure and one liquor seizure.

The Employment Program of British Columbia is funded by The Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.


YEARS AGO: One of two escapees from Bear Creek Camp was killed instantly when the stolen pickup he was driving left Highway 5 south of Little Fort at high speed and hit several large trees. The 21-year-old was due for release in 61 days. His 19-yearold passenger was in Vancouver general Hospital with serious injuries. Clearwater flushed its water system and added more chlorine after one high bacteria count. Administrator Kim Heyman felt spring runoff was getting dirt in the water.


YEARS AGO: Clearwater Provincial Court welcomed Judge Chris Cleavely after a 25 year absence from the valley. “… my family has been in the valley for darn near 100 years… and it’s nice to be back.” Dr. Ifor Thomas was honored by his fellow rural doctors for his meritorious long medical service to the community at the 13th Rural and Remote Medical Convention in Montreal. “Rural medicine is becoming recognized as a separate field worldwide,” said Thomas.


YEARS AGO: A meeting between the board of the Thompson Regional Hospital Board and Dr. Roger Halpenny, CEO of Interior Health Authority, left Clearwater councilor

Bert Walker concerned that the health authority was planning on replacing rural emergency rooms with upgraded air and ground ambulance services. "To me, it reeks of reduction of service at Dr. Helmcken," he said. Jean Nelson, a member of the Southern Interior Weed Management Committee, asked Clearwater council for help in controlling yellow iris around Dutch Lake. "A lot of people don't realize it's a weed but it's very invasive," she said.


YEAR AGO: TNRD issued an evacuation alert to the residents of Upper Clearwater as high water threatened the crossing at Second Canyon. Wells Gray Park has a unique geological history that deserves designation as a UNESCO Geopark and even a World Heritage Site, said Dr. Cathie Hickson during a presentation at the Infocenter. Formerly with the Geological Survey of Canada, Hickson had done her Ph.D. thesis on the park's volcanoes. Local residents were being invited to sign a petition to keep convicted killer David Shearing (Ennis) from being released on parole. In 1982 he had murdered her uncle, his wife, two daughters and his wife's two parents, said Tsawwassen resident Shelley Boden. Members of Simpcw First Nation and Canim Lake Indian Band joined others to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Wells Gray Infocentre and Art Galley. The displays had been renewed and now included more about local First Nations history and culture.

TNRD highlights: Expense reports now available to public Remuneration and Expense Reporting The Director and Committee Member Remuneration and Expense Report for 2014 was presented to the board and is now available for public inspection. If residents wish to view the report, they can find it on the finance page of Fire Service resolution The province of B.C. is expected to introduce legislation in the spring of 2016 that will require regional districts to perform fire inspections of public buildings in rural areas. As most regional districts have neither the staff nor the existing funding source to carry out

fire inspections, many regional districts and area associations are considering similar resolutions opposing a proposed download of a provincial responsibility to local government. A resolution will be forwarded to UBCM for consideration at the 2015 annual convention and the TNRD's voice will be added to the opposition for this initiative. Search and Rescue grants awarded Kamloops, Logan Lake, Nicola Valley, Barriere and Wells Gray Search and Rescue teams will each receive a $10,000 annual Search and Rescue operating grant.

The South Cariboo Search and Rescue team will receive a $3,325 annual operating grant. The board of directors also approved funding for the following equipment and training grants: • $15,662.50 for Kamloops Search and Rescue • $3,118.57 for wells Gray Search and Re3scue

• $571.03 for Logan Lake Search and Rescue. Support for twinning Trans Mountain project The board passed a resolution supporting the proposed twinning of the Trans Mountain expansion project, subject to the pipeline application meeting leading construction and environmental standards.

Encountering the wonder and beauty of nature in book form A hunting enthusiast’s story of life, companionship and beauty found in the wild WILLIAMS LAKE, British Columbia — Water glides over polished stones clear as a crystal. As birds hum in unison, it magnifies the beauty found in the nature. Author Lloyd Antypowich experiences hunting as a way for him to get lost in the beauty of nature. In his new book, “A Hunting We Did Go,” Antypowich recalls fond memories of awe, excitement and peril during his hunting trips. Antypowich takes the reader on a journey to feel, hear, see and smell nature’s unparalleled splendor. Saddling his horse, he explores the mountains where wild animals reside in their natural habitat. He faced a grizzly bear, cougar and a moose. But, the wonder and excitement of nature surpassed all fear. “When you are out in the mountains, on their turf, game will outwit you as often as not, and searching for the right animal is hard work,” Antypowich said. “But, the experience that you

gained from your efforts made you all the better for it.” The memories made with friends and family will forever remain with Antypowich, as they sat around campfires reflecting on their hunting experiences. A Hunting We Did Go By: Lloyd Antypowich Retail Price: $19.99  ISBN: 978-1-4771-5387-4 Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Xlibris. About the author Having lived a life full of ranching, farming, coal mining and road construction, Lloyd Antypowich, 77, retired in Horsefly, British Columbia, Canada. After he and his wife spent five summers at Quesnel Lake, Antypowich realized he had many stories to tell. “A Hunting We Did Go” is his first of six books. 

Local author publishes book about panning for gold in B.C. Sandra Holmes If you are interested in learning anything about gold panning in British Columbia reading Jim Lewis’ book, Gold Panning in British Columbia is the next best thing to sitting down and talking with him. Jim is retired from various careers including being a mortician, a peace keeper, a champion boxer, a rancher and a geologist. Gold Panning in British Columbia is a book he co-authored with his late wife, Susan Campany. It is a comprehensive review of information from his three previous books and an invaluable guide of where to go gold panning in British Columbia. When asked how he got started with gold panning, Jim tells the story of the early 1960s when the mines were on strike. He did extensive research about gold mines in BC, beginning with reading the BC Ministry of Mines Annual Reports which go back to

1874. These reports gave accurate statistical information about every mine in BC. Jim has panned for gold in every BC creek mentioned in the book as well as some rivers in the Yukon and Alaska. Jim knows the tricks of looking for fish oil in the water, checking the high banks and which direction to begin the search. There are other materials that can be found when panning for gold that are just as or more valuable than gold. Often people disregard those materials, questing only for the gold. As well as using a gold pan, Jim has experience using a sluice box. Jim tells many interesting stories about his adventures in the wilds of BC. Ask him about the bear bite he sports. Jim will be talking about his book, Gold Panning in British Columbia at the Clearwater Public Library on June 17 from 2 to 4. His book will be available for purchase for $20.

Unending action on a family weekend in Nanaimo The way to squeeze in a lot of activities into one weekend is to start it early, my sister Valerie from Quesnel and I discovered. By leaving Clearwater in the early hours of Wednesday, May 6, we arrived in time to watch her 16-year old granddaughter play softball in warm

evening sunshine. The drive south had been a colourful one filled with every shade of green, flowering trees and shrubs in yards and along roadsides, and sparkling blue water during the ferry ride. Nanaimo treated us to more perfect weather for the next few days as Wendy, my

niece-in-law, showed off their new location. My nephew’s job involves a lot of travel, but we were there in time to have one day with him before he left. (He initially thought he was off to Chile but showed up on schedule in a town in Arkansas with the same name!) Blues sky

drew us to the shore of Departure Bay to clamber along the rocks, peer into crevices to find anemones closed up tightly with the tide out, spot tiny crabs scrambling for cover when they saw our shadows, look at battered barnacles and shells, and note innumerable types of seaweed. Other essential ingredients for that day with my nephew included a picnic lunch at a water-side park, and fish and chips, then ice cream, for supper at Nanaimo’s downtown waterfront park. The following day, as my nephew changed planes and my two great-nieces attended to lessons at school, Wendy and Valerie went shopping. I happily escaped that by lunching with a friend from Courtenay, sitting outside the small cafe so her dog could be part of the party. Later, with my younger great-niece and her buddy (both with the

Trekking Tales By Kay Knox

same name) leading the way, we climbed the many steps to the top of Sugar Loaf. Here we tromped around the gently undulating rocky surface of this mossygreen, almost treeless hill, finding tiny flowers at our feet and watching ferries come and go amongst the islands. The word “scenic” does not even begin to describe the 360° view. Next, Wendy efficiently packed another picnic lunch and we set off for the beach

at nearby Parksville. Many other families had the same idea, but all found space since beach and park combined cover an extensive area. That sand will be transformed into a wild variety of fascinating shapes during the sand-sculpting competition in midsummer. We dined out towards the point where Heidi the dog splashed around in the salt water and several of us tried skipping rocks that were every shape except flat; soon the sun sank beyond us all, orange rays reflected on the calm water. Saturday saw us on the ferry to Gabriola Island seeking a map to identify spots of interest. On our exploratory drive we missed its unsigned Petroglyph Park but our lunch-time waitress gave precise directions to Malaspina Galleries. There we walked beneath a wave-shaped limestone arch before

strolling along the rocky shore looking for sea stars hiding in damp places. We left a few stones unturned for our next visit to that pretty island. Sunday was both Mother’s Day and our last day so off we went to the Farmers’ Market at Cedar Point, sampling delicious home-made goodies! Later, we stopped at Nanaimo’s Petroglyph Park where indigenous shapes were carved into rocks over 1000 years ago. Redtrunked Arbutus trees, which grow everywhere along the coast, Calypso orchids and clematis, added colour. For the final event and perfect ending, we joined several members of Wendy’s family, who had preceded her in moving to Nanaimo, around a long table for a Chinese Buffet: parents, grandmother, great-aunt, siblings, and those two active great-nieces of mine.

Gramma - Grampa Brag Day The Upstream Community and Heritage Society in Avola has had several enjoyable events this spring. During the school spring break, grandparents were invited to bring along their grandchildren for a "Grandma-Grampa Brag Day." While the grandchildren filled the chalkboards with colourful creative drawings, the grandparents showed photo albums and told of their grandchildren's travels, education, careers and achievements.

Although our plans aren't firm we are hoping to auction off the opportunity to ring the bell (five rings each) with funds going to Nepal earthquake relief. The bell originally came from an old steam engine and was donated to Clearwater United Church by Stan and Betty Johnston.  When the Clearwater

We are gathering to ring in the 90th anniversary of the United Church of Canada by ringing our church bell 90 times. The United Church was inaugurated in Toronto, Ontario, when the Methodist Church, Canada, the Congregational Union of Canada, and 70 per cent of the Presbyterian Church of Canada entered into an organic union. Joining as well was the small General Council of Union Churches, centred largely in Western Canada. It was the first union of churches in the world to cross historical denominational lines and hence received international acclaim. The United Church of Canada came into being on Wednesday, June 10, 1925. The inaugural service began at 10:30 a.m. at the Mutual Street Arena in Toronto. That is why 10:30 a.m. has been chosen as

A registered charity, the Foundation was created to support the sustainable advancement and legacy of the Canadian beef industry through three main area of focus: youth, environment and research.

In light of the earthquakes that have recently hit Nepal, we are holding a fundraiser. This fundraiser will benefit people who live in the Langtang Region of Nepal who’s homes (and villages) have been completely destroyed. This region holds a special place in our hearts.

Missing persons/query to locate

Clearwater RCMP want to remind the public that if you are going into the back country, hiking, camping, motor-biking, etc. to make sure you advise somebody of your plans including your expected arrival back home. The RCMP receives numerous reports of missing persons/query to locate individuals and knowing where to start looking could save valuable time. Remind your teenagers and children to keep in contact with you, their parents and/or guardians, advising them of their locations or where they will be so that the police are not out looking for them.


1-800-222-TIPS Clearwater RCMP Report Domestic assaults

The Clearwater RCMP had recently arrested a local male and a local female for reported domestic assaults that took place in two separate locations.

Outstanding warrants

The Clearwater RCMP located and arrested a 20 year old male in town that had two outstanding warrants for sexual assault and sexual interference out of Kamloops BC. The male does not reside in Clearwater though he was in town couch surfing at local residents in Clearwater. The male was released by a Judicial Justice of the Peace on a future court date in Kamloops. The male has currently left the Clearwater area.

A big “Thank-you” to the North Thompson Community Foundation for approving Avola’s Upstream Community and Heritage Society grant application in April. Willy McLachlan, Bob Jensen and Dave McLachlan helped put the finishing touches on Avola’s first ever town “Yard Sale” signs to prepare for the June 6 and 7 event. “It has been a real community effort from the beginning,” the non-profit society’s secretary, Eleanor Deckert, describes. Karen Bruce had the idea back in November, “What if several families had a yard sale on the same day?” Her husband fetched the materials and got the project started by cutting the wood for the signs. The sandwich board signs will be used whenever the Upstream Community and Heritage Society hosts events. “This first project funded with the NTCF grant is bringing a huge sense of Community Spirit, team work and unleashing a flood of creative ideas,” noted Deckert. Since the Upstream Society’s first AGM in November, 2014, both “community” and “heritage” activities have begun to take shape.

Pauline Mary, JOHNSON November 8, 1930 - May 30, 2015

Matthew Adrianus Vollans October 13, 1978 - May 26, 2015 Matthew Adrianus Vollans, age 36, of Kamloops, B.C. (former resident of Vavenby), died suddenly last Tuesday, May 26, 2015.   He was a loving husband to Jill  (nee Flegel);  father of daughter Keziah (10) and son Seth (8).  He’s son to  Gord and Mary; brother to Tanya, Chris, Andrew and Carla; grandson to Marie Visser;  as well as son-in-law to Rick and Trudy Flegel; brother-in-law to Kim Smith (nee Flegel).  He leaves behind many other family members and a myriad of friends.  Matt loved life and was energetic, enthusiastic and a loyal and dear friend to many.  He always made everyone he met feel valuable and loved, and was a true “Son of Encouragement”!   He

loved family with all his heart, and one of his biggest joys was spending time with them all. He was sensitive, loving and kind, always striving to develop deep relationships with everyone he did life with. 

Above all, he loved and lived his life to the glory of God. He challenged himself along with everyone else to do this to the fullest; his favorite verse being,  “Be imitators of Christ.”  Matt worked as

an electrician and instrumentation tech in the oil, gas and forest industry; he also was an integral part of the water purification system while he was employed with the City of Kamloops. A service will be held June 5th at 1 p.m. (viewing @ 12 p.m.) at Summit Drive Baptist Church  (1975 Summit Dr), Kamloops, B.C.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the New Life Mission, Kamloops.  The family would like to thank everyone for their genuine kindness and concern.  Matt’s life was a short and sweet one ... So well loved because he loved so well;  always esteeming others as better than himself ...  forever to be remembered, he will live on in our hearts and minds!

B.C. extends support for Crown land wildlife conservation program to 2019 PRINCE GEORGE - The Province is investing $100,000 over the next five years to enhance wildlife conservation throughout British Columbia. Parliamentary Secretary Mike Morris made the announcement during a recent Ducks Unlimited volunteer convention. The funding is being provided to the Crown land securement partner program, a partnership that includes Ducks Unlimited Canada, The Nature Trust of British Columbia, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, Wildlife Habitat Canada, the Canadian Wildlife Service and the Province of British Columbia. Parliamentary Secretary Mike Morris said, "The Province recognizes the vital role wildlife manage-

ment areas play when it comes to conserving and managing important habitat for regionally and internationally significant fish and wildlife species." The partners share a strong interest in conserving land for its fish and wildlife habitat values, and work together on acquiring private land and securing neighbouring Crown land for conservation purposes. A key focus of the partnership is to help the Province designate new – and expand existing – wildlife management areas. These are areas of land designated under the Wildlife Act for the benefit of regionally to internationally significant fish and wildlife species or their habitats. Conservation and management of fish, wildlife and their habitats is the priority in a wildlife management area but other com-

patible land uses may be accommodated. Over the past five years, the partnership program has helped create eight new wildlife management areas, and expanded several others, resulting in the protection of almost 29,000 hect-

ares of prime wildlife habitat throughout B.C. Nearby wildlife management areas include Cranberry Marsh near Valemount, plus Tranquille and Dewdrop-Rousseau Creek near Kamloops.

Mom passed away peacefully in her sleep at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital, Clearwater, BC. Mary is survived by daughters Marlene Johnson, Joyce (Wayne) Wysoski; sons Randy (Gail) Coulter, Shawn (Grace) Coulter, Terry (Pae) Coulter; sister Doris Mancini; and long time friend Clara Ritcey. Mary is survived by 10 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and friends. Mary was predeceased by her parents Jim and Edna Archibald, brother David Archibald, sister Ruby White and love of her life George Coulter and grandson baby boy Haden Lee Rempel. Mary was raised and went to school in the Upper Clearwater. She lived for many years in Birch Island, had a short stint in Alberta, and spent the rest of her time in Clearwater. Mary was involved in the Birch Island Women’s Institute for 64 years until it folded; Vavenby and District Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion; O.A.P.O; Friendly Club; Wells Gray Country Seniors’ Society; and the M&M Club. She was well known for her

crib playing and plastic canvas making. Mary will be sorrowfully missed by those who knew and loved her. By request, there will be no formal service. A gathering to celebrate the life of Mary Johnson will take place on Sunday, June 7, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Hall at Evergreen Acres, Clearwater, BC. Services entrusted to North Thompson Funeral Services, Clearwater, BC, telephone 250-674-3030.
