Bona fide Village born from incorporation

Incorporation was hot-button topic for whole community By Carole Rooney, Free Press

Reprinted from the August 5, 1965 issue of the 100 Mile House News-Herald THIS IS THE VILLAGE. Word has been received here by Ross Marks, interim village chairman, from the department of municipal affairs, that incorporation of 100 Mile House has been approved by the government. The news was contained in a copy of minutes approved July 27 by the Lieutenant-Governor recommending that letters patent be issued incorporating the inhabitants of the area as a village municipality under the name of The Village of 100 Mile. This picture shows evidence of the tremendous growth currently underway. In the foreground is the old Cariboo Trail over which men in search of gold travelled north. Below is the recently laid four lanes of pavement and at right the Exeter Road leading to the Pacific Great Eastern Railway station. Large building under construction is the ultra-modern Red Coach Inn. Towering in central background is the 100 Mile Secondary School with a 30-bed dormitory in the striped building at left. At right of school is the three-storey Emerald Apartments; large building centre right, the Exeter Arms Hotel; third white building at left of pavement is the new home of The News-Herald. — Carl Mellander photo, August 5, 1965

100 Mile House – A legacy from the past By Sherry Stewart First on the scene, before the town of 100 Mile House even existed, was the long dirt road leading from Lillooet to the gold rush frenzy in Barkerville. Stagecoaches rattled up and down the old Cariboo Wagon Road, and the stopping place designated “100 Mile House” (100 miles from Lillooet) boasted ramshackle accommodation for horse and man. Dusty travellers ate and slept in the old roadhouse, and their horses were stabled in the old 100 Mile barn, still in existence today, though moved to a field at the north end of town on 100 Mile Ranch property. Through the years various

people owned the stopping house, now named Bridge Creek House, as well as the surrounding land. In 1912, an Englishman named William Cecil, the 5th Marquess of Exeter, purchased Bridge Creek House and the 12,000 acres of ranch land surrounding it. The arrival of the railroad line in 1917 saw the end of the stagecoach era, and the Red Coach Inn at the north end of town is today the resting-place for what is said to be the last surviving wagon of the Barnard Express and Stage Line. Apparently that stagecoach, recently given to the District of 100 Mile House by the Cecil family, came along with

MARTIN CECIL

the purchase of The Lodge property in 1912. The actual town of 100 Mile House began to come into existence in 1930

with the arrival of William Cecil's son, Lord Martin Cecil, a 21-year-old English nobleman who came to oversee the property and its 2,000 head of cattle. Fresh from the Royal Navy and an elegant life in England, Lord Martin was known for rolling up his sleeves and working hard right alongside the seasoned ranchers. It is said “He wore patches on his trousers just like everyone else,” and he eventually became known as “The Father of 100 Mile House.” By the time Martin first arrived to oversee his father's holdings, the 15,000 acre ranch was called Cont'd. on page C15

Fifty years ago, a milestone in local history was made when the Village of 100 Mile House was incorporated. The first Interim Council was nominated, and then elected by acclamation, in the 100 Mile Community Hall in July 1965. Headed by chairman Ross Marks (who won the nomination by a landslide over candidate Spud Speers), its four original commissioners were David Ainsworth, Chuck ShawMacLaren, Cas Copec and Russ Fraser. Prior to incorporation, when it officially became the Village of 100 Mile House, the community land was entirely owned by Lord Martin Cecil (its modern founder), under his Bridge Creek Estates holdings. Dating back to more than a century ago during the Cariboo Gold Rush days, the 100 Mile roadhouse, now called The Lodge, was a stopping point on the Cariboo Trail. It was built in 1937, after a fire destroyed the original roadhouse in the same location. As more and more houses and amenities appeared in 100 Mile, business was really booming in the 1950s-’60s. By 1965, incorporation had become a hot topic in the community. Shaw-MacLaren

has lived in 100 Mile House since 1955, and clearly recalls its formative days when, along with other “movers and shakers” of the time, he was very involved with the whole process.

ROSS MARKS

He was among the volunteers on an incorporation committee working diligently toward determining which direction the community wanted to go. Numerous public meetings eventually led up to a 57/36 vote supporting the change in June 1965. It squeaked in at 61.5 per cent, with 60 or better needed for incorporation. Shaw-MacLaren explains a group of businessmen that held leases wanted to have a village run by local government, primarily to have an option open to buy land downtown. Once the candidates were identified, they began working on the legal process with the provincial government to be prepared for the July 5 nomination elections. Cont'd. on page C3

Museum dream revives at council Foundation OK, but newer wing prospect for demolition

Carole Rooney Free Press

District of 100 Mile House council and Cariboo Regional District (CRD) directors are considering a revised plan to revive The Lodge and open a museum in the historic building. Back in January, the South Cariboo Joint Committee (SCJC) asked staff to investigate what renovations and repairs would be needed to facilitate a walk-through museum in the closed facility. District director of operations Phil Strain updated the committee on the progress of this investigation, as summarized in an April 21 letter from Bluegreen Architecture Inc.

“Obviously, from the washrooms would need report we got from the archi- to be dismantled, but the tect, this would be the most extent of the required work cost-effective way to go – to will be narrowed down once make it similar to a SCJC provides furBarkerville house, ther direction, he or the 108 [Heritage added.

However, the original circa-1933 shell of the facility would be preserved, including the main building, Valley Room and commercial kitchen, he explained. “I’m not sure what the historical artifacts would be, but I certainly don’t have any idea on costs of obtaining them, or if they would be donated, or whatever.” Strain noted there is no plan to apply for a historical site registration, so he doesn’t believe any heritagerelated restrictions will apply to what can be done to the building. Mayor Mitch Campsall (also SCJC co-chair) said it

was good to have all this information, and the next step would be for the committee to take a closer look at The Lodge. “There’s not enough information here to do [anything], and just so the public knows, that this is only the report, this is not [necessarily] what we’re doing.” The committee decided to walk through The Lodge at take a look at the potential issues and impacts prior to an upcoming meeting, which will then be held in the Valley Room.

Shirley Case subject of new mural Community hall graced with humanitarian’s own images

Carole Rooney Free Press

T

he latest mural in 100 Mile House, located on the front wall on the 100 Mile Community Hall, features Shirley Case, a 108 Mile Ranch resident who was tragically killed in 2008 while doing humanitarian work in Afghanistan. Just 31 years old when she died, Shirley had dedicated her life to helping children and women in third-world countries through education and improving living conditions. 100 Mile House Mural Society vice-president Donna Nivison says the group embraced the idea because Shirley was such a worthy candidate for honouring in a mural and would perhaps inspire others. “We approached the family, and they agreed that it would be nice, and we went from there through all the steps it takes to have one happen.” It has actually been years to bring this mural to fruition, and the society was “thrilled” with the design when they saw it, she adds. “It is quite stunning and very striking, actually. “It’s different to have a young person on the mural. And, like all the people featured on the 13 other murals, she, too, spent her life doing good things.” Shirley’s mother, Deb Case, now living at Green Lake, says she and her husband, Alec, are pleased to have their daughter and her life as a humanitarian as the focus of the lovely new mural. The mural not only honours Shirley, but also highlights her life to people who might not otherwise know about the good work she did, Deb notes. She hopes the mural brings

Local resident Taylor Stusrud was invited to help paint the new mural at the 100 Mile House Community Hall on July 10. The mural is in honour of Shirley Case, an aid worker from 100 Mile House who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008.

awareness, since things like having access to a good education could be better understood and appreciated in Canada. “Hopefully it will make people think about how they can help others. There is a whole world out there where we can do it. “Even simple things like

having running water we take for granted ... but it is still huge to some people.” The mural images are quite representative of the countries Shirley visited and the children she helped, Deb adds. The overall design layout was chosen with the approval of Alec and Deb, as well as the mural society.

“I thought is was great.” Williams Lake artist Dwayne Davis painted the mural with a design he arranged from a family photo of Shirley, and several others she had taken herself in Africa (including Nigeria and Chad), and in Afghanistan. “I worked up a collage

showing all the different people and ... mainly a lot of the children that she worked with in the underprivileged area. “Even looking at the pictures you can tell she would have been an amazing person just to sit down with and talk to.” Dwayne says what he learned about Shirley’s life in researching for the mural was quite inspiring. “I’m quite happy to get the opportunity to work on the picture that is that meaningful.” Not part of the mural yet, but in the society’s plans to add on soon, is a picture of a child helping to build the Shirley Case school in Nicaragua in 2011. Shirley’s friend, Jessica Chaikowsky, had brainstormed the idea for the school and teamed up with Canadian-founded company SchoolBOX to see it become a reality. She and other caring folks in the community successfully fundraised for the school, and Deb and Alec, along with Karen Cleave and Brenda Webber (who were good friends of Shirley’s) all travelled to Nicaragua to help build it. Donna explains the mural society will now expand the mural. "With recent donations including $1,600 from the South Cariboo Truckers' Association, the society's plan to recognize Shirley's ongoing legacy efforts are now being added to the right side of the mural. "The mural society sincerely appreciates donations from the community to help us 'paint the town'." Donations can be made at CIBC, the Williams Lake and District Credit Union, or by contacting Donna at 250791-6497 or Ruth Peterson at 250-395-4881.

Communities to benefit from grants

Donna Barnett, Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA says $338,682 in combined annual funding has been provided by the province to the District of 100 Mile House and Cariboo Regional District (CRD) The District has been issued $242,975 in Small Community

funding, while another $95,707 in Regional District funding has gone to the CRD. It is part of almost $75.2 million being invested into communities across B.C. to meet local needs, including more policing, new equipment, increased community safety

initiatives, infrastructure and service delivery priorities. “Public safety funding is important to rural communities and essential in strengthening law enforcement and providing additional resources for crime prevention. I am grateful that 100 Mile

House will see this funding go back into our community to help support important programs and projects that will make a real difference in peoples’ lives.” This is the second of two annual payments. A payment of $40 million was made in March 2015.

ROAD LINE TESTING The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will begin testing pavement paint marking for toughness on British Columbia highways. Line painting is done at least once a year, but the water-based paints that meet federal environmental standards wear differently than the oil-based products discontinued in 2010. This year, three sections of highways near Prince George, Kamloops and the south Coast, will see four-inch test strips of white and yellow paint applied horizontally across one lane, with signs noting that testing is underway. The products will be tested for durability, longevity and reflective qualities.

Gardeners asked for excess produce SCFSC will help collect and distribute food for those going hungry

By Rita Giesbrecht Calling all gardeners – this is an invitation to share the bounty of your harvest by planting an extra row for those among us who are in need. The South Cariboo Food Security Committee (SCFSC) is witness to an increased need for this food, especially for families. If you can help, there are several different ways.

out a team of volunteer gleaners to pick and store it. We have workers, and access to a root cellar for the community, as well as the freezer, and can store

vegetables over the winter for distribution. In our first gleaning project is 2013, we harvested, stored, and distributed more than 500 pounds of potatoes,

beets, carrots, and cabbage. This was thanks to the generosity of Paul and Cindy Whitehead. Here in the South Cariboo we have a tradition of self-reliance

and support of each other. The SCFSC is proud to support and uphold that tradition by bringing the community together, and making a

difference in the lives of children and families who are hungry, and shouldn’t be. For more information or to help and participate with this project or

if you have vegetables you can provide, call Debbra at CFEC at 250395-5155. Rita Giesbrecht is the vice-chair of the SCFSC.

First, know where you can bring extra produce. We can provide nourishing meals for those placed in vulnerable circumstances not of their making. • From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre (CFEC) will accept your offerings and pass them on as appropriate. This can be fresh produce, but also the Agri-Culture Enterprise Centre has a freezer for storing offerings either directly, or left at CFEC. This means you can freeze extra produce and pass it along. • On Wednesdays, Loaves & Fishes Outreach at the Bethel Chapel will accept produce and distribute it the same day. • The Soupe De Tour program will also receive this food through these channels, or accept it directly.

Emergency Services Open House well attended

The inaugural Emergency Services Open House happened at Forest Grove Fire Hall 1 on June 20. This event is meant to be the first of many to inform the public what assistance is available to them, and where and how to access it. Following a demonstration of the water and foam spraying power of Forest Grove’s two water and three fire trucks on display, the Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department (FGVFD) partnered with the 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue and BC Ambulance Services to cut an “accident victim” out of a car.

Members of the Forest Grove Fire Department, 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue and the BC Ambulance Service, pose for the cameras after a simulated rescue demonstration.

The attending South Cariboo Search & Rescue team explained procedures and relevant equipment required during a callout, as well as what information is needed about the person(s) to be located. People were then invited to try on a protective and water-proof suit. Cariboo Regional District representatives manned a table containing information on the newly established and free Emergency Notification System. Three laptops were set up where those attending could register to be contacted directly, should a crisis arise.

Be prepared for emergency situations The recent spell of hot, dry weather has resulted in increased fire danger ratings throughout the Cariboo Fire Centre (CFC). The majority of the CFC is currently between moderate and extreme, with a total fire ban in place. With these hot and dry conditions in mind, it’s a good time to think about being prepared in case of an emergency. Residents of the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) – 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, Quesnel and Wells – can sign up for the Cariboo-Chilcotin Emergency Notification System to receive alerts about emergencies and other important community news. This system enables the CRD to provide critical information to residents quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and

evacuations of buildings or neighbourhoods. People who sign up for the service can specify how they want to receive the alerts, including: home, mobile or business phone; e-mail; and text message. Residents can register by visiting the CRD website at www.cariboord.ca or by calling the office at 250392-3351. For folks not comfortable registering their

emergency notification information via computer or Smartphone, you can give Lory at Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy (CCPL) a call at 250-395-0655 to book an appointment. She is happy to meet with people to help them set up their contact information. You are also welcome to phone the CRD at 250-392-3351 and ask for Cody. He will assist

you to input your information. The link to the registration is https:// memb er.e verbr idge. net/index/4530030856 12292#/login It is important to register in order to receive local alert information. People can also learn about how to prepare for emergencies by visiting PreparedBC at: http://www.gov.bc.ca/ preparedbc.

Greeny Lake VFD fights wildfire

A small wildfire had the Greeny Lake Volunteer Fire Department on the spot for three hours midday on July 20 until the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) arrived to take command. Fire chief Ken Gisby says the department responded to the call with two tenders, one pumper truck and eight members after the call came in about noon. The fire was less than 200 yards east of Spout Lake Road along an old logging road at marker pole 45, with no structures nearby, he explains. Gisby says a small fire was ignited in some underbrush, but then the

blaze got into a stand of Douglas fir and expanded (although was less than a hectare in size). Once BCWS set up their own bladders and brought in a helicopter with a bucket to attack the flames, the scene was under good control when his crew was able to stand down at about 3 p.m., he adds. The fire chief notes it was likely caused by lightning the night before, but high winds persisted in the area, so he was very glad his department jumped on the blaze and handled the firefighting until the provincial team arrived.

Emergency Support Services delegates set up a booth that offered a mountain of information, including evacuation alerts, orders and emergency planning. They also

displayed a number of suggested items to be added to a pre-packed bag, should an evacuation become necessary. It was a very interesting presentation of all emergency services

l o o C p Kee ith

involved, underlined the fact new members are always welcome and very much needed. To find out more about joining the FGVFD, visit Fire Hall #1 on Monday nights at 7 p.m.

Crackdown needed

T

We can afford $10 a day child care

A

t almost $10,000 per year, four years of child care costs more than a university degree. And that’s if you’re lucky enough to find a spot, since British Columbia only has enough regulated child care spaces for 27 per cent of children under six years old. Numerous studies have shown how society benefits when all families have access to affordable, high quality child care. British Columbia child care experts have developed a plan that would reduce fees to $10 a day, create enough spaces, and increase the quality of care. This plan has gathered support across the province – from businesses, local governments and academics. However, when our political leaders are asked about $10 a day child care, they wring their hands and tell us that unfortunately we can’t afford it. I bring you good news: the

$10 a day child care plan is them. entirely affordable. In other words, the direct In fact, it would be largely returns to government from self-financing. investing in the $10 a day Quebec researchers found plan would almost entirely large and almost immediate cover the $1.5 billion annual economic benefits from their cost. child care program, While a federallaunched in the late provincial 1990s. partnership on In a study child care would published last week, be ideal, my I estimate that if analysis shows British Columbia’s that B.C. can experience were also afford to similar, $10 a day implement a child care would provincial-only significantly program like Iglika increase the Quebec’s.

GUEST SHOT

he B.C. Liberal government is looking at cracking down on distracted motorists who continue to use their cell phones and other hand-held devices while driving, and we agree whole-heartedly. Distracted drivers are not only endangering their own lives, but they’re also putting the people who share the roads with them in jeopardy. British Columbia introduced its distracted driving legislation five years ago, but the message just isn’t getting through to some motorists. They continue to text and e-mail while they’re sitting behind the wheel of a fast-moving vehicle while taking their eyes off the road to look at their hand-held devices. The government tried to crack down on these people who are clearly driving without due care and attention by increasing penalties for using an electronic device while driving to a $167 fine and three penalty points. Did it work? Nope. Last year, police issued around 55,000 tickets to drivers who were caught using an electronic device behind the wheel. In 2013, they issued about 53,000. These statistics are staggering when you consider the police throughout the province are obviously not pulling over every distracted driver in the province. The police watch for distracted drivers while on regular patrols and they have blitzes when they specifically look for people using hand-held devices and pull motorists over. However, they are really just skimming the surface if ICBC is correct in its estimate that 9,500 drivers in B.C. are using a hand-held electronic device at any given time, and 40 per cent of them are texting or e-mailing while driving. Furthermore, studies show that texting or using a Smartphone while driving is more distracting than talking on one – the crash risk is 23 times higher for drivers who text. The provincial government attributes 88 deaths to distracted driving last year, which is second only to deaths caused by speeding and more than fatalities involving impaired driving. It’s a huge problem that has to be dealt with quickly. The government has already stated it’s going to increase the fines for distracted driving, but that’s just the start. It is also considering suspending driver’s licences and impounding vehicles, and we are in favour of all of the above. The message has to get out to distracted drivers that if they are caught, it’s going to hurt their pocketbooks and they’re going to be without a vehicle and a driver’s licence for a while. Sitting behind a driver’s wheel requires our complete attention. We don’t want to see our families devastated by the loss of a loved one because some other driver just had to read that text message and took his or her eyes off the road for a couple of seconds.

My study models one possible approach: a series of modest personal and corporate income tax reforms staged in gradually over 10 years. For the vast majority of people, this would mean paying only $20 to $80 more per year. Families that directly benefit from child care would still contribute a large share of the program costs, but instead of paying through exorbitant fees up front, they would pay through a combination of affordable fees and the income tax system. For the rest of us, pitching in a little is a bargain for what we’d get with universal quality child care: healthy child development, improved social inclusion, more gender equality and economic prosperity.

Drivers need to slow down through 70 Mile House

To the editor: The 70 Mile House Safety and Speed Reduction Committee (70MHSSRC) members are still hitting a “Stone” wall with our endeavours to have a speed reduction implemented through 70 Mile House. There have been numerous requests to Highways and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone to reduce the speed limit through our community until such time as there are sufficient safety-ori-

ented infrastructure developments that would then warrant the high rate of speed that we are presently forced to live with. Mr. Stone is adamant that a speed reduction is not warranted within the identified 2.5-kilometre community corridor of concern. Let us assure the highways minister the residents of 70 Mile House do still strongly disagree with him. There are daily reports of “near misses” involving both residents and the general public when they

are trying to turn on or off of Highway 97 into local businesses, North Bonaparte Road, the subdivision roads and private driveways. There is considerably more summer traffic going into and out of the North Bonaparte Road, way more traffic turning into the 70 Mile General Store, and exceptionally more traffic stopping at the Sugar Shack – all of which are accessed within the 2.5-km community corridor. Many of these vehicles turning

New Democrat popularity in Alberta plummeting

To the editor: The Alberta NDP won the provincial election on May 5. On July 3 – just short of two months of the NDP winning government – a poll taken by Mainstream Technologies shows the NDP now at 26 per cent popularity down from the 41 per cent on election night. If an election was held today, the Wild Rose Party would form the government of Alberta. This is a first in Canadian history of how a political party could lose so much popularity in such a short time. NDP Premier Rachel Notley has even lost 12 per cent of her popularity since election night. The poll had 3,007 respondents. Albertans are not in agreement with the NDP’s raising of the minimum wage, raising personal and corporation taxes, and royalty fees in the current unstable economic climate. They also show a cloud of uncertainty with this NDP government. One must remember the NDP did not

win the election on the NDP name. The election was won on vote splitting on the part of the coalition parties. On election night, the NDP had 40.57 per cent of the popular vote in comparison to 52.03 per cent for the Wild Rose and Conservative parties. The writing is on the wall for the NDP government in Alberta. This NDP win has no effect on the upcoming federal election. The federal Conservatives hold 54 per cent of the federal vote in Alberta. Remember there is no Wild Rose federal party; therefore, Wild Rose voters will vote for the Conservatives. In four years, the NDP government will be voted out, just like they were in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia and they will be defeated in Manitoba on April 19, 2016.

on and off the highway are hauling boats, utility trailers, motor homes and travel trailers. They are in jeopardy because it is impossible for them to get up to the speed 100-110 km/h most drivers are racing through the corridor. To compound the traffic problems, we have ditches that haven’t been mowed, so the high grass is impeding driver vision. Now that the deer have had their fawns, there is an increase of deer crossing the highway during both daylight and

darkness. If you are travelling this corridor, please slow down. Take the extra two-and-a-half minutes to keep everyone safe. Should you be the unlucky one to be a “near statistic,” please don’t hesitate to forward the licence plate and particulars on to RCMP. This might be one avenue to actually record the near misses versus a “reportable collision.” T. Grantham 70MHSSRC member

Donations used locally

To the Editor: Last week’s letter to the editor regarding the Ashcroft hospital (Ashcroft resident disappointed with Interior Health, Free Press, July 9, 2015) may have left some incorrect impressions about hospital donations and Interior Health as it relates to our facilities in 100 Mile House. The Ashcroft letter stated that Interior Health “took a percentage” of any monetary donations made to their local hospital. I just want to reassure area residents that every cent of a donation made to the South Cariboo Health Foundation is used for the 100 Mile District General Hospital, Fischer Place, Mill Site Lodge and community programs.

No portion of Foundation donations are redirected to Interior Health. Since the Foundation’s inception in 2002, over two million dollars has been raised for use in our local facilities, which includes numerous equipment purchases, extensive renovations and support for palliative and

hospice programs. For more information about the South Cariboo Health Foundation, please visit our website at www. southcariboohealth.com. Brenda Devine Public relations/fundraising South Cariboo Health Foundation

BC VIEWS

ave you noticed the latest degradation of standards on TV news? In addition to sensational depictions of crime, accidents and celebrities, the lineup now incorporates any nonsense that is momentarily “viral” on the Internet. So it was with an online petition singling out Swiss food corporation Nestlé, which operates a water bottling plant near Hope. It’s the largest in B.C., one of many that bottle the province’s water and sell it back to a gullible public. This petition is courtesy of SumOfUs, one of those self-appointed environmental watchdogs that seem to pop up like mushrooms overnight. “Fighting for people over profits,” they claim, pitching for donations. The story has what U.S. comedian Stephen Colbert calls “truthiness.” That’s when something is false, but it “feels” true. “Nestlé is about to suck B.C. dry – for $2.25 per million litres to be exact,” says the SumOfUs headline. Using her keen sense of what’s superficially popular, Premier Christy

Neither the Fraser River at Hope nor the Strait of Georgia is particularly short of water, even in the driest of years.” Clark made one useful contribution, when asked about this urgent non-issue by those seeking to further sensationalize the current drought and forest fires. She correctly noted that most B.C. residents have access to the best tap water in the world, and have no need for bottled water. Nestlé, Perrier, Coke, Pepsi and other companies have done a fantastic job of convincing people that their drinking water has to be delivered in bottles from some mythical pure source. Here’s a tip, Nestlé critics: Fill a jug with water and stick it in the fridge. Fight the corporations. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Drunk woman fights off two Mounties KELOWNA - Kelowna RCMP would like to thank the Kelowna Fire Department for their assistance on Okanagan Lake. On July 19, at 9:58 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP received a report that an intoxicated 19-yearold female from Kelowna had gone running into Okanagan Lake. Two local Mounties attempted to rescue the woman. The RCMP members tried to corral her and bring her back to shore when an altercation occurred as the female became combative. The Kelowna RCMP members who were exhausted, clung to a swimming buoy and were picked up by the Kelowna Fire Department. The officers were transported to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment and released. The woman returned to shore and was subsequently taken into custody. She could potentially face criminal charges. The Kelowna RCMP thank the Kelowna Fire Department for their assistance on Okanagan Lake.

Gas leak forces downtown Nelson evacuations NELSON — Some businesses in Nelson were evacuated after a gas line was ruptured Thursday (July 16) morning on the Stores to Shore project near the intersection of Vernon and Hall St. Nelson Fire and Rescue, Fortis BC, Nelson Hydro, public works staff, bylaw officers, and police were all on scene. Fire chief Len MacCharles said he believes the high pressure gas line was ruptured by construction crews who were hand digging at the time. The fire department received the call at 10:11 a.m. MacCharles said the high pressure line posed significant hazard but the winds were favourable, helping disperse the gas rather than accumulate. MacCharles said crews were able to rip up the pavement and clamp off the gas line further up the road before beginning the line repairs. BC Safety Authority is investigating as part of a regular procedure.

No. I think the current maximum fine of $10,000 is a lot of money and it is plenty to deter most people.

Yes. I think they should have to work to rebuild the burned areas. We need our trees and our homes and it is costing folks a lot of money because of careless people.

Yes. I was driving down Canim-Hendrix Lake Road and saw someone throw a cigarette butt out their window, but they were going too fast to get the plate information. I’d say toss your butt and lose your vehicle, or your paycheck at least.

The final day-long party in this week’s District of 100 Mile House Welcome Home 50th Anniversary Celebration is July 25. A huge amount of activities, games and entertainment will be happening all day and into the evening in Centennial Park for everyone who likes free fun and festivities. The Party in the Park gets underway at 9:30 a.m. when the 100 Mile Wranglers flip flapjacks at a pancake breakfast. Then mascots from

100 Mile House Free Press mascot "Newsie" is hard at work buffing up to prepare for the Mascot Games in Centennial Park on Saturday, July 25, from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

various organizations will compete in the first ever 100 Mile House Mascot Games, sponsored RBC. Volunteer organizer Lucille Armstrong says the mascots will be meeting the public at the Wrangler breakfast, and then the games will

kick off at 10:30 a.m. Games and activities will happen every 20 minutes, beginning with musical chairs and followed by a tug-ofwar; a spot shot (foam noodle sword fight); petitioning for votes and posing for pictures; a mascots-versus-politi-

cians tug-of-war; and a dance competition. The winning mascot will be announced at 1:30 p.m., and will get to choose the charity of its choice for the cash prize. Be sure to catch the cake-cutting and dignitaries’ speeches

government leaders representing the South Cariboo, who will each briefly address the crowd. Doddridge adds a giant cake will be cut and shared at the ceremony. Then the Duck Race happens at 1:30 p.m., when all the “rubber duck” entries hit the currents in Bridge Creek. The lucky-duck win-

ner will split the 50/50 proceeds with the 100 Mile House & District Soccer Association. Ticket are on sale now for $5 each at Action Fitness and the South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce office, and at prior anniversary events.

CANIM LAKE Peter Hart 250 397-2645

Dear Canimites, Congratulations to Sharron and Phil Simms who are celebrating their 50th anniversary tomorrow (July 24) with family at their Mahood lakeside home. The couple retired to the lake 11 years ago. Both are active members of the Mahood Falls Community Society. Ode to berries The Saskatoon picking has been unusually fruitful this year (oops) and pickers, including myself, are spending quiet evenings romancing the bushes. My love of berrypicking comes from my mom. As a young squirt, I would row her across the lake from the tar-paper shack we called ‘the cottage’ to the vacant farm where wild raspberries reclaimed the meadows. On the return trip, there would be six quart baskets heaped up and sitting on the floor of the boat. Then I’d start looking for the pine knots needed for the hot steady baking fire she needed for the pie-feast to come. She was one of 14 siblings and got her love of picking from her father I suppose. He was a railway engineer in the days of steam, and as the story goes, not averse to stopping the train between Barry’s Bay and Madawaska, Ont. to escape the stu-

pefying heat of the boiler and pick the abundant blueberries which grew beside the track. There’s a Zen-like quality to berry-picking, particularly on a quiet evening with the birds muttering in the background. Worries melt away, grievances are put to rest, new possibilities spring to mind and the energy to pursue them follows. That’s all for now This is column #177 and my last for a while. I’m holstering my pen to free up energy for other matters that life has presented. I consider it a privilege to have been your scribe for Canim, Hawkins and Mahood communities. You have been patient and forgiving of my gaffs. I’ve had the honour of writing some of your personal stories – ones of courage, tenacity, triumph – and I have been constantly amazed at the goodness and talents of the people in our community. That’s all for now. Go pick some berries, and until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings. Editor’s Note: The Free Press thanks Peter for his great coverage

Dozens of friends attended June 29’s Farewell Luncheon honouring Don and Marion Traill who are moving away after nigh on 40 years. Marion is a founding member of Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s (DLDVFD) Ladies Auxiliary (LA), past president, chief quilter, and fire department dispatcher. In addition, she is past Head Fire Commissioner. Don has been a DLDVFD mainstay since its inception in 1979, including doing the trucks’ mechanics. As a souvenir, DLDVFD and its LA presented the much-loved couple with a beautifully framed photo of Deka Lake surmounted by sapphire sky and fluffy white clouds. Fish Derby For DLDVFD’s fish-

Correction

There were two errors in the Interlakes Column on page A16 of the Free Press. The photo caption should have read: Glenda Bruce showed off the beautiful quilt, which is first prize in the Interlakes Volunteer Fire Department’s raffle. In the Important referenda, the portion regarding the vote for all Area L residents, it should have read: The cost is expected to be a minimal $1.41/$100,000 assessed value. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

About 120 friends and family gathered to help Harvey and Shirley Canning celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, at their home on July 11. A good time, great food and excellent entertainment was enjoyed by all who attended. Jason Ruscheinsky entertained the crowd with some of his easy listening country classics and Scott MacDonald, an Elvis impersonator from Esquimalt, had the crowd up dancing to some of Elvis’ biggest hits. As to be expected, there were many of Lone Butte’s pioneers in attendance,

including Norman and Anna Granberg, Helen Horn, Jim and Sheila McMillan, Marie Monette, Alan and Janet Boyd, and Gunn Granberg were some I noticed. The party went well into the evening. Congratulations to Harvey and Shirley. Benefit dance Rheanne’s bene-

fit dance at the Lone Butte Community Hall – held on the same day and at the same time – was reportedly an excellent dance, too. Rheanne is a young girl with many medical issues and this fundraiser was organized to assist the family with some of their many travel and medical expenses. The

family also holds the annual fishing derby called Fishing for a Cure. Best wishes are extended to Rheanne and her family. Lone Butte Rocks Community thanks go to Byron and Marg Walton who stepped up to chair and record this year’s Lone Butte Rocks Committee

Local artists paint ‘Passage of Time’ Cariboo Artists’ Guild 35th Annual Show and Sale from July 30 to Sept. 12

A body of diverse and engaging work reflecting the passage of time by close to two dozen local artists will soon be on display for about six weeks in 100 Mile House. The Cariboo Artists’ Guild (CAG) 35th Annual Show and Sale runs at Parkside Art Gallery from July 30 to Sept. 12. A reception will be held at the local art gallery on Cedar Avenue from 5 to 7 p.m. on July 30. Between 25 and 30 artists are expected to hang as many as six paintings each, with one submission reflecting this year’s theme – “Passage of Time.” One of those artists is CAG member Helen Kellington. “The passage of time is simply the expression we use to say that time has worked its magic,” Kellington says regarding this year’s theme. “Just as art needs a medium in which to be created, it could be

could a plant emerge from a seed, bloom and go to seed? How could music be played or the spoken

word create meaning without the element of time?” She adds, “Time, it might be posited, is the medium of all things.” CAG is devoted to promoting arts and culture in the Cariboo. It includes about 35 budding and established local artists from the area. “Passage of Time” is an intriguing theme and sure to induce a variety of subject matter from the artists, says group member Patsy Granberg, who painted a scene from a graveyard in Nova Scotia for the show. Thirty-five years represents many years of friendship and learning together, Granberg adds of the guild. “The Cariboo Artists’ Guild offers community if you’re interested, and also interested in the arts.” Parkside Art Gallery is located at 401 Cedar Ave. in 100 Mile House.

The 100 Mile 'N Hour squirts squad was one win away from a perfect season and took home silver at a provincial tournament in Sooke, July 10-12.

Squirts end dominant summer Coach Rob Sanford: 'It really was an incredible season'

The 100 Mile 'N Hour squirts finished one win away from a perfect season at U12 provincials in Sooke on July 10-12, winding up an incredible run and medal haul this summer. Coach Rob Sanford says it was a tough loss in the finals to a determined host team for 100 Mile, which was going for its fourth gold medal of the season. “It really was an incredible season and I couldn't be more proud of the whole group. From fundraising to having fun, we did it right. It was 25 years ago I went to Sooke and came home with provincial silver, and honestly, the memories we brought home then and now are more than the colour of the medals we brought home.” Three gold and one silver for the season is a stat that will be hard

to match, Sanford adds, but 100 Mile 'N Hour will be ready for that challenge. “A super huge thanks to all of our volunteers and, most of all, our sponsors. Without all of our sponsors, 100 Mile would not have the dominant fastball program that we do.” Heading into the tournament, 100 Mile was getting great pitching from Colton Sanford and Jackson Hooper, and it seamed like no team could stop them, the coach adds. “This group of 12 boys and one girl cleaned house in the round robin, outscoring

the opposition 40 runs to 12.” In Game 1, 100 Mile beat Sooke 13-0. Hooper was MVP. Game 2 saw 100 Mile over Surrey, 5-4. C. Sanford was MVP. Hayley Edlund won MVP of Game 3, in which 100 Mile beat Barrier, 15-2. In Game 4, 100 Mile won 7-2 over Surrey and Virgil Kennedy was MVP. 100 Mile beat Sooke 13-4 in the semi-finals and Ethan Sanders was MVP. Sooke handed 100 Mile a 9-2 loss in the finals. Aiden Moore won MVP of the game for the local squad.

Financial Tip of the Week With Life Insurance for Small Children: Sensible or Silly? Insuring a child’s life can be a Judy Simkins delicate subject, but can make Franchise President, financial sense. Insuring a child at 100 Mile House a young age guarantees that he or she has insurance now and has the ability to get insurance in the future. This will protect the child’s ability to obtain insurance against future health problems, such as asthma or cancer; it will also protect the child against risky occupations such as becoming a firefighter or pilot. All activities relating to life and disability insurance products and services are the sole responsibility of the agent. Insurance products provided through multiple insurance carriers.

Multiple collisions happen along Hwy. 97 From A11

A second test was requested and the result was also a “fail.” The driver was issued a 90 day immediate roadside driving prohibition and his vehicle was towed and impounded for 30 days. Trailer rear-ended Two north-bound vehicles collided on Highway 97 just north of 100 Mile House on July 15 at 5:40 p.m. A pick-up truck destined to Prince George was towing a pontoon boat. The driver of a Ford Econoline van drove into the rear of the boat and trailer. Both the van and the boat and trailer were disabled as a result of this collision and were towed from the scene. None of the occupants of either vehicle were injured. The driver of the van is facing charges under the Motor Vehicle Act. Driver extracted Two vehicles collided at the intersection of Easzee Drive and Highway 97 at the entrance to 108 Mile Ranch at 7:45 a.m. on July 15. The driver of a Chevrolet Cavalier turned north onto Highway 97 in front of a white south-bound Chevrolet Silverado. The south-bound vehicle was unable to avoid a collision and struck the Cavalier in the driver’s side. The impact caused the Cavalier to be pushed across the north-bound lanes and come to rest on the verge. Several

people stopped to render assistance. The female driver of the Cavalier was extracted by the use of the jaws of life and taken to 100 Mile House & District Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The occupants of the pick-up truck were not injured. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. Once the debris was cleared, both lanes were re-opened for traffic. The driver of the Cavalier is facing charges under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Vehicle rollover Police and rescue crews were dispatched to a single vehicle rollover collision which occurred on Highway 97 just north of the 103 Mile at 10:45 p.m. on July 14. The driver of a red Pontiac G5 appeared to have lost control, left the roadway and rolled. The female driver was examined at the scene; she was not injured. Speed and liquor were not factors in this collision.

NOTICE

It is with profound regret that the Executive of Branch #260 of the Royal Canadian Legion announces the ClOsurE of the Branch premises at close of business July 31, 2015 until further notice.

Our reserves are exhausted and we are not taking in enough revenue to pay staff, taxes or even utilities. Such a cash flow situation can no longer be sustained. While some ideas have been advanced by both BC/ Yukon Command and members the choices have boiled down to selling the Branch property to pay off our debts and perhaps start another venue with a different business profile or, possibly, building a small senior’s housing project with a meeting space/drop-in centre for the Branch.

It is the intention of the Executive that there continues to be a Legion in 100 Mile House. Regularly scheduled meetings will still be held at the Branch as long as we continue to control access to the building. The next General Meeting will be held Sept. 24, 2015 at 7 p.m. The Poppy Fund will continue to be administered by the Branch and the Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day activities will go on as usual. We will continue to offer as much of a service point for our military and RCMP veterans as possible. Current and prospective members are still encouraged to join and be a part of the Royal Canadian Legion whether at Branch #260 or another Branch of your choice. Sorry folks. It is what it is, and has been for some years now. Thank you to our great, loyal staff for everything.

Funding, volunteer support changing lives

By Reg Berrington Most of us are aware that addiction from the use of drugs and alcohol creates a huge financial and emotional cost. Many addicts wishing to rehabilitate are fortunate for a facility, such as the Psalm 23 Transition Society with its mission to help addicts in their quest to break away from their use of drugs and alcohol. Fortunately, these transition facilities are becoming more financially available to the average addict. Transition societies obtain their funding from various sources and Psalm 23 is no exception. The addict is responsible to pay for their stay and Psalm 23 has a number of fundraising activities. One such event is held in 100 Mile House, usually in November,

and is called a Night to Remember, which includes a dinner and auction as well as the presentation of their Starfish awards. Two other events that are usually held in June are the Million Dollar Charity Hole in One Contest and the Swing for Freedom charity golf classic. Psalm 23 executive director Marvin Declare spends most of his time fundraising in the Cariboo and at the Coast. Extra emotional and financial support is offered from Pastor Rick Barker of the Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship (CCLF) church located in the 108 Mile Ranch. Church members Larry Hilstad and Mike Boyd volunteer their services on a weekly basis helping the residents receive help in breaking away from their addictions.

Shelly Declare is the facilities director who takes care of the Psalm 23 facility at 59 Mile. This position is a 24-hour job as admitting and discharging the residents, plus the operation of the building can happen at any hour of the day or night. The operational costs for Psalm 23 far exceeds the funding received, which creates a continuing need for more funding and donations that will enable such an important facility as Psalm 23 to stay open. If you would like more information or can help Psalm 23, please contact Marvin or Shelly at 604-870-5616 or e-mail psalm23 society.com. Reg Berrington is a volunteer with the Psalm 23 Transition Society and this is part 5 of an ongoing series on Psalm 23.

The next South Cariboo Sustainability Society (SCSS) permaculture workshop is at the Community Place Garden, First Street and Birch Avenue in 100 Mile House on Aug.1 at 10 a.m. Rod Endacott will give a presentation on vegetable growing made simple in an urban setting using the new Community Place Garden as an example, says SCSS director Peter Jarvis. “He will show folks how a vacant lot can be rejuvenated into a productive garden at minimum cost and effort. Knowing Rod, he’ll salt the presentation with the philosophy of permaculture and life in general.

Karen Johnson Puckett will lead a workshop on seed saving, coupled with a tour of her “backyard.” Karen’s backyard comes complete with heritage turkeys and alpacas and a variety of flowers and vegetable beds. The half day workshops are free, but donations are welcome for the venues. Plan on two to three hours of activities; bring a snack or lunch, and refreshments will be supplied. There will be a charge for the weekend workshop, but it will be reasonable as BC Hydro, the Cariboo Regional District and the District of 100 Mile House provided grant funds.

Whether you live in the city and have a small outdoor 250-395-3835 living space, or you live in the countryside and have a wide open meadow to work with, there are simple solutions for turning that drab outdoor area into a fabulous spot for your family and friends to enjoy. 1. Lighting: The easiest way to dress up your outdoor space and still make a big impact is with lighting. There are many options to choose from depending on your space and your style. String lights work really well for small patios, but look great in any outdoor space. 2. Seating: The right seating can make all the difference. Big spaces can handle the bulk look of a farmhouse table, a custom built bench or an outdoor sectional. In smaller spaces, try brightly colored wicker chairs, or a small bench with bright throw pillows. 3. Pergola: Adding a pergola to your outdoor space can help define your patio and “hangout zone” from the rest of your backyard. It can lend your space more privacy, shade, and shelter. Speaking of more privacy and shade, adding curtains to your space can do more than just dress it up. 4. Bar/Kitchen/Beverage Area: Turn your patio into the ultimate hot spot with a customized bar that is stocked with all the necessary items to make every weekend the perfect summer party. Plus, outdoor bars and kitchens can make hosting duties so much easier! If you’d love an outdoor kitchen, but don’t have the space, get the best of both worlds with a cute beverage station. Make over an old bar cart, re-purpose an unused dresser, or use an few old crates or pallets. 5. Area Rug/Stenciled Deck: If your budget won’t allow you to buy much more than seating and a table for your patio, you can still dress up your outdoor living space with an area rug. To help stretch your budget even further, purchase an inexpensive rug, and transform it with a stencil. For a fun, textured look, stencil a design directly on your deck planks or concrete patio. 6. Unique Planters: Don’t settle for just any planter for your beautiful hanging plants. Grab a can of spray paint in your favorite accent color and re-purpose unique items like an old tire, a broken wheelbarrow, or bird bath for a fun and rustic look. If you already have tons of plain or mismatched pots in your outdoor space, transform their look with fun pops of color. Enhance the look of your house by adding shutters and flower boxes. These pops of color will not only help dress up your outdoor living space, but will also give your home great curb appeal.
