When attending a conference or sports tournament, people typically spend more than $150 per day on accommodations, meals, fuel purchases or taxi and entertainment. Over a threeday event this can really add up and give a boost to local businesses. There have been many local organizations that have shown their community support and helped to

bring this event together. Transportation to Hallis Lake from downtown Quesnel will be provided by Big Canyon Rafting. Barkerville Brewing Co., Community Futures North Cariboo, Downtown Business Association and the South Quesnel Business Association also made generous contributions towards the opening reception.

UBCM announces wildfire grants The B.C. government and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities are providing new grants totalling $500,000 to help communities identify and take action to reduce wildfire risks on private land. Fifty grants of up to $10,000 each will be made available to local governments and First Nations through the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative (SWPI). The 2016 SWPI FireSmart Grant program will support communities to plan for wildfire prevention activities on private lands, as identified through the FireSmart Communities Program. FireSmart activities help decrease wildfire threats to homes and property and can prevent damage to structures, increase the effectiveness of firefighters and safeguard firesuppression resources. “Homeowners who live in interface areas can help protect their properties from wildfires by using FireSmart principles,” Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson said. “This new grant program will help communities and First Nations raise awareness of this important work and become recognized as FireSmart Communities.” Funding provided through the 2016 SWPI FireSmart

Grant program may be used to: • Enhance public awareness of FireSmart principles. • Increase community participation in FireSmart activities. • Advance planning to address wildfire mitigation on private land. • Help communities obtain official recognition as “FireSmart Communities”. FireSmart recognition involves engaging neighbours, property owners, local government and First Nations authorities and other agencies to meet a set of recognition criteria to assist communities become more resilient to wildfire. The Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative is administered by the Provincial Fuel Management Working Group, which includes the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, the Union of British Columbia Municipalities and the First Nations’ Emergency Services Society. The FireSmart Communities program is administered by Partners in Protection Association (PiP). Applications for the SWPI FireSmart Grant program are being accepted until Nov. 30. The Program & Application Guide and Application Form is available on the UBCM website: http://www.ubcm. ca/EN/main/funding/

Municipalities said. “This new offering is the result of a longstanding working relationship between the Province of B.C. and UBCM in the area of wildfire preparedness and mitigation.” “One B.C. municipality has been recognized with a Community Protection Achievement Award, while another community and multiple communities in eight different First Nations have been recognized as FireSmart Communities for their work in reducing wildfire threats,” Kelly Johnston, executive director of the Partners in Protection Association said. “I’m looking forward to adding more communities to that list as a result of this new grant program.” Quick facts:

CITY COUNCIL NEWS Bob Simpson, Mayor

The Tools of Local Government After a successful and productive Union of BC Municipalities Convention, Council is once again focused on the City’s budget, bylaws and our Official Community Plan. These are the tools local government has at its disposal to shape the community we were elected to govern. As with our 2015 budget, Quesnel City Council is focused on reducing the City’s operating costs. The target set by Council for 2016 is a minimum of $525,000 in savings so we won’t have to raise taxes for basic services, programs and general operations. This will create the room we need to raise taxes only for infrastructure and we’re still planning on a 5% tax increase for that purpose in 2016.

CAPSULE COMMENTS With Jessica Joly B.Sc. (Pharm)

Before the modern age of drug therapy, many medications came as liquid extracts of natural products. Whiskey, in strengths of up to 60%, was the main ingredient in many of these products. It was felt that the alcohol was very good for its sedative effects, particularly in young children. Times have changed…….. Portion size is still one of the most powerful methods of losing weight. This is particularly important when we travel. We tend to be a little more liberal in our eating habits on holidays and this can often lead to weight-gain. Guidelines about coffee consumption seem to agree that four cups daily is a safe quantity to drink. For pregnant women and children the amount is a lot less…. about one cup. Ever since 1998, when drugs became available to enhance men’s sexual health, drug companies have been working hard to find a female equivalent. One company has found such a drug but results are mixed and there are some side effects that the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S. has not allowed its release yet until the company deals with the risks attached to the drug. Research is carried on worldwide to find new drugs to treat all the diseases that plague us. We try to keep current on that drug research and when a new drug does come onto the market, chances are that we will know about it. We encourage your question about new and old drugs. Drop in soon!

Funded in part by the Alex & Luanne Coffey Family Fund, Special Olympics BC – Quesnel received $910 for team gold jerseys. At the annual Gala on April 11, Sustaining Partner Glen Boudreau from Fraserview Pharmacy presented the cheque to Special Olympics volunteer Rick Prosk. SOBC-Quesnel is an affiliated local group within the Special Olympics BC organization. Their mandate is to provide competitive sport training and opportunities to mentally challenged youth and adults in the community. This is done by providing twelve sports programs, offered year-round. For most of these programs, there is an opportunity for athletes who have committed to the sport training to engage in competition within the region and the province. In addition to providing these opportunities to compete, SOBC-Quesnel also provides fitness and strength training through a newly-established “Club Fit” program. Athletes are also provided with information about healthy lifestyles. Their involvement in Special Olympics helps to boost their self-esteem, learn valuable social skills, develop independence, and represent their home community whenever they travel as a team. The golf program was established in 2011 as an initiative of Kathy Gook, a local golf pro who currently instructs and co-ordinates the school golf program for the BC Golf Association. With support from Ken and Karen Reid, owners of the Quesnel Golf Course, the program expanded from two to five months. . This past fall, Quesnel hosted its first golf tournament with athletes attending from Prince George and 100 Mile House. Many local golfers continue to use the second-hand golf clubs received from local donors. At the tournament, they wore uniforms that had been passed on from the bowling program. These are dated, and ill-fitting for most of the athletes. The new, dri-fit uniforms will present them in a more positive light to their competitors and the community. For more information on Special Olympics BC – Quesnel, call Rick at 250-992-2741.

While our Financial Sustainability Committee wrestles with the budget, the Policy and Bylaw Committee has been working on proposed bylaws that will help Council enhance our City’s attractiveness and livability. Our tobacco-smoke free public spaces bylaw is still open for public discussion prior to final reading in October. Council will also be seeking input on its new, comprehensive Street and Traffic Bylaw that contains anti-idling regulations and regulations restricting panhandling. Another bylaw in the works proposes to regulate the use of shipping containers in the City. All of these bylaws are designed to ensure Quesnel maintains its vibrancy and resiliency, and they are all still open for public feedback. A foundational tool for local government is the Official Community Plan (OCP) and Council is currently reviewing all aspects of Quesnel’s OCP. This is the basic foundation for zoning and, if done right, can help us to attract investment and grow our community in a sustainable fashion. Our development of a new Master Parks Plan, the work we’re doing with Ministry of Transportation on the Highway 97 corridor, and the updating of our 1997 Bicycle Network Plan are all part of our OCP review process. Council is using all of the tools at its disposal to lead our community through this transition period.

Connecting Our Community

As part of our 2016 budget deliberations we’re also trying to determine how we can best wean the City off its dependence on industrial taxation. Currently, we receive about 60% of our total property tax revenue from heavy industry (mostly from West Fraser) while residential ratepayers contribute only 19%. This makes our community extremely vulnerable to more mill closures and it also makes it difficult for us to attract investment (we have one of the highest industrial tax rates in the province).

Online voting gets tepid thumbs up

E-vote privacy, manipulation fears aired at UBCM JEFF NAGEL Black Press B.C. municipal leaders voted by a slim margin Wednesday to urge the province to enable online voting in time for the 2018 local elections. The resolution from Osoyoos was passed by 51 per cent of delegates at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in an electronic vote after it had initially been declared defeated in a show of hands. Advocates say the convenience of online voting could boost the dismal turnout of municipal elections and engage many more young people. Vancouver Coun. Andrea Reimer said no municipality would be forced to adopt online voting, the aim is merely to make it an available option for communities and individuals that want it.

But Saanich Coun. Vic Derman warned there’s no way to guarantee an online voter is casting their ballot in privacy, without someone else directing or manipulating them, possibly buying their vote. “It does affect one’s privacy of vote that should take place behind a screen at a ballot box,” said Lorne Lewis, a Sunshine Coast Regional District director. He said it’s wrong “to put people in a situation where they can be badgered about their vote.” The close vote suggests the issue is having increasing trouble gaining traction. A similar UBCM motion in 2011 passed by a two-toone margin. Since then, an independent panel struck by the provincial government concluded last year that the risks outweigh the benefits,

and recommended that any move to online voting be limited to voters with specific accessibility challenges. That report by B.C.’s chief electoral officer also found no

evidence of a significant increase in voter turnout in other jurisdictions that have adopted online voting. Reimer isn’t concerned about the close vote and said

online voting for B.C. mayors and councils is inevitable. “The only question is when and how far behind other jurisdictions we’ll be when we get to that point.”

Compassion

T

he debate around how to help Syrian refugees, fleeing a vicious civil war and expanding Islamic State terrorism, has become something of a political football in Canada. It’s to be expected that various parties during the election would make various claims on the best approach. But this is beyond politics. The publication of the photo that went around the world – that of threeyear-old Syrian refugee Alan Kurdi – is ample evidence of that. Canadians are compassionate people and there is ample precedent for helping those in need. We need only recall when in the 1980s thousands of Vietnamese “boat people” were taken in by this country. Compassion has to supersede politics in this matter but other questions arise of Canadians wanting to respond. While dramatic and serious events like the Syrian crisis are few and far between, there is no lack of other events seeking our charitable response. It’s important to analyze how useful and effective such charitable “trends” are, often spurred on by heart-wrenching photos, and where they go after the outrage dies down and the public moves on to the next hot issue. We can look beyond the migrant crisis in Europe to any number of countries that would benefit from the aid and compassion of Canadians. And it is right and good that we continue to do what we can. And for every trendy hashtag and its accompanying global outrage, there are local issues which, perhaps at times lacking the same profile, still need our attention. The status of refugees, and Canada’s responsibility in assisting them, is deservedly in the spotlight. And local organizations that are doing their part deserve our accolades, especially as most of them were doing the hard work to support refugees for years before it became a trendy issue. –BP

Inner children take over city hall W

e’re seeing the effects of our post-literate, feelings-based education system and media on the federal election. Candidate bozo eruptions are becoming more frequent. Most recently a Liberal candidate on Vancouver Island admitted she has long believed that hijacked jetliners could not have destroyed the World Trade Centre on 9-11, that it was all “a lie.” That was “my truth,” she said, in the lingo of the feelings-first, innerchild crowd. Now she’s “moved on” to a slightly different factfree conclusion, that we’ll just never know how those 3,000 people were murdered. And she wants to go to Ottawa and help run this country. Feelings-based beliefs were on display again at last week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver, where bozo eruptions by local politicians come in bunches. This year’s main outbreak was an emotional demand that the B.C. government enact a provincial bill of rights. This magic municipal Magna Carta “recognizes the right of every resident

Tom Fletcher

B.C. Views to live in a healthy environment, including the right to clean air, clean water and vibrant ecosystems.” Alert taxpayers may wonder, how many lawyers would it take to define “vibrant”? More on that in a moment. Local councils across B.C. and around the country have been pitched this scheme by the David Suzuki Foundation, which calls it the Blue Dot campaign. In short, it’s part of the bigger plan to save the planet by crushing capitalism, currently being pushed by the Pope, the UN and others. Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps was one of the most passionate backers. She quoted the plea presented to her council by an 11-year-old recruited by the Blue Dot team. There are many such children, terrified by indoctri-

code for some sort of costly new legal aid program to pursue every individual grievance. Meanwhile in the real world, class action lawsuits are being prepared to gain compensation for lost resale value of millions of cars. This is what happens in fortunate places like Canada that already have access to justice. O’Neill read off a long list of existing B.C. legislation that protects water, air, wildlife, food, public health and so on. Helps replied that this bill of rights would “consolidate” all that. One more layer of bureaucracy, that’s the Victoria spirit. Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb pleaded with rural delegates to reject this “David Suzuki propaganda” that is designed to put more roadblocks in the way of the very resource industries that provide our modern comforts. Alas, the resolution passed in a show of hands that should have been, but wasn’t, put to a counted vote. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

In the vast, air-conditioned hall of the Vancouver Convention Centre, there were several attempts at adult supervision. Coquitlam Coun. Terry O’Neill noted that unlike intrinsic rights articulated in Canada’s charter, freedom of assembly and so forth, this is an attempt to invent new rights that are actually demands for “others to do something for you.” Indeed, if we’re going to have government by 11-year-olds, we might as well throw in a right to free ice cream. Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz went off on a rant about how this new “vision” would protect us from things like Volkswagen fiddling its diesel fuel emission results. The resolution calls for “access to justice when environmental rights are infringed,” which sounds like

Stop the reign of terror Editor: For several months now, many of us have watched with horror the unfolding human tragedies of hundreds of thousands of refugees desperately trying to escape civil war both in Africa and the Middle East. As a child and grandchild of religious, political and economic refugees and listening to the personal family horror stories that profoundly affected my parents and grandparents, I deeply sympathise with the plight of all refugees caught in the cross-fire and trying to escape. As a secondary school teacher, I also had refugee students. I was mostly amazed how hard they and their parents worked to better their situations. Coming to a strange country with strange customs and a new language is always very difficult. Plus, there is the added stress of making a living, doing whatever it takes to survive, taking menial jobs at minimum wage and learning to accept the generosity of total strangers, and also dealing with those who show you no compassion and who actually express hostility and even hatred towards you and your ethnic group. Growing up as a young child in the 1950’s and 60’s after WW II, I personally experienced hostility because my parents spoke German, yet I was born in Canada. However, I’m troubled by people and politicians who would “throw Canada’s doors wide open” to any and all who claim refugee status  I’m so glad Canada did not do that with my parents’ and grandparents’ generation. The first obligation of any government is to protect its own citizens and that requires intense screening. First of all, is the refugee really a refugee? Is the person even who he claims to be? I’m well aware that for obvious reasons, many refugees carry no identification ID could endanger their lives.

Letters to the Editor

“What about common criminals who only become “refugees” to avoid legitimate prosecution in their own country?” However, it is the duty of our front-line immigration officials to be sure that a person is who he says he is; that he has not claimed to be someone he isn’t, so he can evade prosecution and punishment for war crimes. Sorry, folks. This process just takes time. There is no other way. In the absence of concrete identification, stories have to be verified to protect us. As a child, I can recall stories of how people snuck into Canada, claiming to be someone else and later being deported to face war crimes trials for being an SS or Gestapo officer of the Nazi regime. Many readers can recall the recent citizenship stripping and then extradition of an aged John Demjaniuk to face trial and then live out the rest of his few years in prison for the crimes he committed as a concentration camp guard during WW II. From time to time, we also read of stories of former Khmyr Rouge officials who have snuck into other countries but are finally exposed to face trial for their role in the massacre of millions of Cambodians.  And who can forget the Rwanda and former Yugoslavian genocides? Do we want these perps to live off the avails in Canada for years before they are discovered, if discovered at all?  What about common criminals who only become “refugees” to avoid legitimate prosecution in their own country? Also, what about medical exams for highly contagious dangerous diseases such as ebola and tuberculosis? Do the “bleeding hearts” want to put all of us and our children

at risk? My mom tells us that in 1925, she and her whole extended family were all screened for glaucoma, TB and other serious health defects. Rightly so, but sad to say, some people in other families who travelled with them were denied entry to Canada for these health reasons to protect the health of Canadians. There is also the significant economic cost to all of us. Who pays for health care, education, social services? The cities where refugees live also must provide water, sewer and garbage pick up. And who pays for food, clothing and shelter if family members cannot immediately find work that they are qualified and able to do?  While I agree we should do what we can, we must also realize that we are a country of only 34 million people. I can totally understand how a number of European countries are currently overwhelmed by the impossibility of adequately dealing with all the refugees that have recently come in. This is a huge extra burden for countries that are already struggling economically. For us, there is only one tax payer for any government program and it is us, folks.  I agree it’s a discussion we should have “How many should we take in?” Who’s willing to step up as a personal sponsor? Could groups of families band together to sponsor a family? I know of families who did just that in Quesnel years ago with the Vietnamese Boat people. And what about doing something about the reasons for these people becoming refugees? Dealing ‘summarily’ with the perps who are causing people to flee for their lives? This is why I believe Canada is doing the right thing by playing a military role to stop the horrendous crimes against humanity that are currently going on in Africa and the Middle East. Stop the reign of terror, and we  solve the refugee problem altogether. Jim Sagert Quesnel

Rotary exchange changed my life

Rotary International exchange program offers students an opportunity to experience new cultures ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter

T

he Rotary International Exchange program offers students the opportunity to experience foreign cultures, delve into personal growth and expand youthful boundaries and that was certainly true for Cheri Maisonneuve. At 16, having a connection to a world traveller, Cheri had a glimpse of life beyond Quesnel and began looking for exchange opportunities, starting with her school counsellor. “She told me about Rotary exchange,” Cheri said. She and her parents were thoroughly evaluated for Cheri’s suitability for the program, and to her excitement she was selected. “Rotary is one of the few exchange programs that is merit based with an extensive selection process,” she said. “They try to prepare you for what you’ll experience.” Cheri said one of the most important aspects to

being a Rotary exchange student is your role as an ambassador for Canada, your community and Rotary. “I took that very seriously and was proud to fulfil that role,” she said. So, in 1995, Cheri headed to Oaxaca, Mexico where she ran headlong into a cultural shock she never expected. “Back then we didn’t all have cell phones or the technology they have now to stay in touch with home,” she said. “Once you arrived at your host family home you wrote lots of letters and might talk on the phone to your own family maybe once a month.” It wasn’t long before Cheri felt grateful and really appreciated how good life is in Canada for most Canadians. “Even as a middle class Canadian, I was better off than most Mexicans and that was a humbling realization,” she said. Cheri, a veteran with 5 exchanges under her belt, said exchanges have a definite cycle with everything new and wonderful the first 3 – 4 months, but then the language challenges,

the lack of modern conveniences you’re used to, missing family and adjusting to life in another country begins to take a toll. She said it was especially true at Christmas for her. However, an aspect of life in Canada that she never expected to miss, really impacted her. “I missed the B.C. trees, the greenery, the wildlife, life in Oaxaca is mostly desert with palm trees and only two seasons, rainy and hot,” she said. “I missed the four seasons.” Cheri attended a government high school and was enrolled in their tourism program. Students in Mexico either attend private school or government schools and there was no budget for private school for Cheri. But she loved the experience. “We had to wear uniforms and I thought I would hate that but I actually loved it. You didn’t have to think about what you’d wear and it takes away a lot of the distinction between students,” she said. “I also played volleyball and a form of soccer called ‘baby foot’ which

was played on a concrete court, sort of like a tennis court. I learned very good ball handling skills.” In total, Cheri and three other North American Rotary exchange students rotated through four different host families and Cheri said as with any situation, some were good placements and some presented unique challenges, but each also presented learning and personal growth opportunities for this avid exchange student. “The outbound exchange student has an obligation to interact with their host community, immerse themselves in the culture and really try to disconnect, even for a little while, with what they know to be home. It would seem that’s more difficult for today’s exchange students than it was for me, as we didn’t have those options,” she said. “But it’s so important to get the most out of your exchange experience and to work to overcome language and culture challenges.” For this teenage girl, her experience in Mexico kicked off her love of travel, culture and helping

people. She went on to achieve a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce with a major in International Business, a post graduate diploma in political science with a focus on Latin America and an MBA in International Business. She’s visited about 45 countries now, has worked and studied in Peru, France and Malaysia. She’s worked in various international industries include commerce, mining, logistics and oil and gas. “The Rotary exchange program was lifechanging, there’s nothing like it,” she said. “The passion that Rotary has is unparalleled. They’re invested in the program and they care about you as an individual, as an ambassador and want you to have the best experience.” As Cheri matured and went on to live a fullfilling life she realizes how many of the experiences she had in Mexico helped her develop compassion for people and a view of the world she wouldn’t have had otherwise. “Living amongst people in real poverty helped me

realize the importance of community, and how impactful international programs such as Rotary are and how microcredit, education and empowering people help them help themselves get out of poverty,” she said. “I also had to learn personal financing while I was there, something that prepared me for my studies and University in a way that I never would have had.” For anyone considering a Rotary exchange, Cheri is very enthusiastic. “It was mind-boggling and opens yours heart, mind and soul to new experiences.” Today, Cheri continues to help people, is also a wife and mother and still finds time to be a committed Rotary member. “I’m committed to Rotary and its ideals. Being involved has a real impact both locally and internationally.” Anyone interested in either becoming a Rotary exchange student or hosting a foreign Rotary exchange student can contact Rotarians Paul Mednis, 250-9923402 or Cheri at 250992-8531.

LIFESTYLES WOMEN’S FALL CHALLENGE

WFC now has two dedicated buses for shuttle service In 2014, the committee decided to try a shuttle bus system. The idea was great and the people tried hard to make it work but the system was overwhelmed and participants had to wait for a ride. We hoped for a van but ended up with two cars to do the shuttling. As people saw the increasing need, drivers joined the queue and started shuttling runners to the boat launch. That morning, there were nearly 10 private vehicles moving ladies between Dragon Lake School and the boat launch. This shows the Quesnel spirit of see a need and find a way to fill it. Well, Mayor Simpson happened to be one of those drivers. That day, he vowed that if he became mayor, he would help make the shuttle system work better. The City of Quesnel has dedicated two city buses for our day. Participants will have the choice of using this system. You may drive to the boat launch if you wish and you might

There are three parking areas and flaggers will help you fit in. Then all you have to do is wait for the bus. Our volunteer drivers will begin shuttling at 7:30 a.m. The two buses can hold more than 20 passengers each so this will make access to the race site so much smoother, simpler and fun. The trips will continue until race time and then the drivers will take a break until the speediest start to return. Then the shuttles will start again. The last shuttle should be heading

back to the school about 11:30. It may be later if necessary but by then most, if not all, of the tired legs have completed the course. The bus will enter the lane leading to the launch area, drop passengers off by the launch and then make a sharp turn to head back. This means we need to cordon off a distinct area that will pass by the

porta-potties and the late package pick up area. Please be aware of everything around you as you meet your friends, sort your gear and do your warmup. Every person who helps you participate in this event is a volunteer. Please be generous with your thank-yous and compliments. Great Job, Quesnel! – submitted by LizAnn Eyford

Lifestyles SHIRAOI TWINING SOCIETY

Hosts and delegates get to know each other

Each student and adult brings home special memories of time in Japan The recent Shiroai/ Quesnel Twinning Society delegation to Shiraoi included both teenagers and adults and each experienced the trip from their perspective. Tobias Nestel, a Quesnel teenager, stayed with the Makino family and had wonderful things to say about their hospitality. “My home stay family was very kind,” he said. “They would give me so many gifts I had to have another bag to fit them it. They also made sure I was always having fun.” Elizabeth Hunter, Quesnel museum manager, was also on the trip and said the best part of that experience was staying with her host family, the Kawanishi family and the personal connections she

made as well as the opportunity to gain insight into Japanese daily life. “Their hospitality is a bit overwhelming, but very genuine and I think we all came back with some very special memories,” Elizabeth said. Both reported a very active touring element to their experience. Tobias said they went to an arcade and the super market (which he said was really big and also they went to a Japanesestyle pizza place. “I went to a water show with my family where I got to see a penguin parade, a sea lion and dolphin show and also we rode a ferris wheel,” he said.

Tobias said he tried octopus for the first time. “It was delicious. It was so good it’s my favourite food from Japan.” For Elizabeth, one of her best days was spent people-watching in Ueno Park in Tokyo as well as the five hours she spent at the National Museum. “I only got through the first building featuring the Japanese collection and there were three other buildings,” she said. “I also really enjoyed the gardens and architecture in the temple complexes, especially at Nikko and Narita. The view from Mount Tarumae was pretty spectacular and everyone took pride in claiming ‘we climbed an active

volcano’.” When asked what surprised him most about Japan, Tobias said it was in Tokyo he discovered the Japanese used smoke to cleanse their soul. For Tobias, his trip home to Canada had some very uneasy moments. “When we were leaving Japan, I lost my passport on the plane to Vancouver,” he said. “It was very scary because they told me I would have to go to a place for two weeks so they could tell I was me. Luckily they found my passport on the plane so then I was safe.” Watch for more impressions of Japan in an Top: Tobias Nestel with hosts the Makino family: bottom: Quesnel upcoming Observer.

Ryan Graham Sports Reporter

Master Instructor Joel Kolenchuk at the martial arts boot camp Sept. 19.

Martial Arts and Pole Classes available RYAN GRAHAM Observer Reporter If you’ve been thinking about getting fit, the time is now! Tiger Martial Arts and Vile Pole Arts are providing opportunities to reach your fitness goals. The martial art classes offer a variety of programs. They include Tae Kwon Do, Jiu Jitso, black belt, leadership, kickboxing and Teuk Gong Moo Sul. Master Instructor Joel Kolenchuk believes martial arts are more than a sport. “I consider it a way of life rather than a sport,” Kolenchuk said. “With most sports you get certain benefits from them, but it’s not the focus of the sport.” Each month has a different theme. During the classes they discuss the

subject, before moving onto the physical aspect. September’s theme is discipline, where they talk about selfdiscipline and respect. They have testing every three months, where students are evaluated for belt advancement. During the season they have a tournament in Kamloops, which involves all the Canadian Martial Arts Federation affiliated schools. They offer free trial’s for people thinking about joining. Kolenchuck believes people should understand what there doing, before paying for it. “I hate anytime that people pay for something and feel like you didn’t get to utilize it,” Kolenchuk said. “We want people to feel like they’ve gotten the most out of their money and what they deserved to learn out of the martial arts.”

People joining are as young as four. Currently the club has 75 members and is always looking for more. “Come in and just try it out,” Kolenchuk said. “You don’t have anything to loose.” The other class available is Vile Pole Arts, which provide people with programs in pole classes and circus arts. Instructor Jenny Phillips says the aerial silks class is well-liked. “The silks is probably our most popular class,” Phillips said. “There usually always full.” Both classes are located at Maple Park Mall. More information for both classes is available at http://tigermartialarts.ca for martial arts and http:// www.vilepolearts.com for Vile Pole Arts.

Quesnel impresses at icebreaker tournament

RYAN GRAHAM Observer Reporter

Hockey is back! The Quesnel Minor Hockey Association held their Peewee Icebreaker tournament this weekend Sept. 26 – 27 at Twins Arenas. It was an entertaining tournament with the players showing their skills. The teams were Prince George tier one and two, Williams Lake, Vanderhoof and Quesnel. Quesnel ran away with the tournament, as they went undefeated in their games. They beat Prince George in both contests 9-6 and 9-2. Defeated Vanderhoof 15-0 in a blowout and 3-0 in their second game and continued to roll, finishing off the tournament with a 13-2 win against Williams Lake. The purpose of the tournament was so coaches could evaluate players in game situations to make their final cuts. Although, there was no actual winners as it was an exhibition tournament, it showed what Quesnel players are capable

The wait is finally over

RYAN GRAHAM Observer Reporter

The Toronto Blue Jays ended their regular season home stand in style as they swept the Tampa Bay Rays and clinched a playoff berth for the first time in 22 years. There was no celebration hangover Sunday, as the Jays went onto defeat Tampa Bay 5-4 courtesy of a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth by MVP candidate Josh Donaldson. Saturday saw them clinch a playoff spot, assuring them of at least the wild card. They are now only two wins away to clinch the division and have a one game lead over the Kansas City Royals for the best record in the American League.

If they capture top spot they will secure home field advantage throughout the post-season. Toronto finished their home record 53-28. The 53 wins are the most since 1992, with the club record being 54 in 1985. The Jays will finish the year on the road playing Baltimore and Tampa Bay with the season finishing Oct. 4, when playoff positions will be determined. One big question heading into the playoffs will be if their shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki will be healthy to play, as he has been out since Sept. 12 with a fracture in his left shoulder blade after colliding with Kevin Pillar.

Tulowitski has made strides recently, as he took swings for the first time, hitting off a tee. Sunday also saw the 27th sellout of the season, 20 which has come in their last 21 games after they made their blockbuster trades for Tulowitzki, Ben Revere and David Price. The total attendance mark was raised to 2,794, 891, which is the highest since 1995. They will have to wait to find out who they will play, but it will be an entertaining week to see if they can carry the momentum into the playoffs and give Canadian baseball fans a winner they have waited for since 1993.

Cops for Cancer to hold football tournament RYAN GRAHAM Observer Reporter Cops for Cancer will be hosting a touch football tournament Oct. 17 – 18. If you would like to register call the Quesnel Arts and Recreation Centre at 250-992-8200 or Josh Nutley at the Quesnel RCMP. All proceeds raised will go to Cops for Cancer. It’s $200 per team with minimum seven people per team.

Functional ways to accessorize your kitchen There are several things you can do to achieve a kitchen that’s closer to the one you dream of without the hassle of large scale renovations that involve knocking down walls and replacing every appliance you own. Elegant, inviting, sleek, trendy, and warm – these are how you want to hear your kitchen described, and there are a few simple changes you can make a big impact. Accessorizing your kitchen doesn’t have to interfere with your workflow and functionality, in fact, kitchen counter accessories can actually enhance it. If you’re on the quest to enhance work space while also achieving a balanced and clean design, look for products like the Blanco Quatrus Gourmet Series of sink accessories for their Quatrus sink collection. “The Blanco Quatrus Gourmet Series delivers a smart and innovative space saving solution. This collection allows you to rethink the daily work in the kitchen, harmonizing everyday needs with a model kitchen

look” Blanco’s marketing manager, Edyta Drutis said. These Blanco kitchen accessories will keep your space both stylish and functional: Cutting board While a cutting board is a tool that you use every day, it can act as a design centre feature for your kitchen. Look for warm wood colours to accentuate the tones of your sink. Blanco’s Ash Cutting Board incorporates functional style, fitting directly on top of the sink allowing you to chop and prepare ingredients and then move the excess and scraps into the sink below. It also serves as the countertop extension. Workstation Many of us know the feeling of having a drawer filled with knives and utensils that can leave you constantly searching for the right kitchen tool. For a safe and design friendly way to organize and showcase these items, opt for a Workstation that holds sharp knives safely and conveniently to make these tools easy to find and clean later on.

Stainless steel grids Your sink can be a highly overused appliance in your kitchen. To protect its finish from dishes and utensils, look for stainless steel sink grids that not only compliment the look of the sink but provide a non-skid protective base that allows water to drain below the dishes. This feature can do double duty to wash fruits, vegetables, and pots and pans inside your sink with ease. Sink caddy Dish sponges and soap left scattered around your sink can leave the area looking messy and even corrode your counter if left out for too long. Blanco’s stainless steel Magnetic Sink Caddy keeps clean up essentials like sponges and scrub brushes within reach and organized to give your sink area a spotless and fresh look. More ideas on adding stylish space saving accessories to your kitchen are available at blancocanada.com. –newscanada

Getting at those fall maintenance chores Too many homeowners make home maintenance an annual event. They often use spring cleaning as the only excuse to get things done around the house. In reality, proper home maintenance should be done year-round – even for a brand new home. The Fall in particular offers some essential maintenance tasks that you should consider to keep your new home healthy and ensure that your warranty rights are protected. With the warm weather giving away slowly to winter, here’s a short checklist of key things to watch. • Take a walk around the outside of your home and check all windows and doors for cracks around the framing. Re-caulk if you notice any cracks or separations. (Tip: for windows on second stories or above take digital photos and zoom in. It could save multiple trips up a ladder.) • Check the weather stripping on exterior doors.

Make sure they are not damaged or worn and will keep that warm air inside your home come December. • Have your roof inspected professionally to ensure shingles, flashing and chimney caps are in place and sealed properly. • Clear leaves from eavestroughs and downspouts and repair any cracks or seam separations with caulking. Check all downspouts for damage. (Note: If you’re having a professional roofing company check the roof they can check the eaves and downspouts at the same time.) • Shut off your home’s exterior water supply and drain exterior water lines. Leave the taps open a bit to ensure any trapped or remaining water will not freeze and damage the water supply line. (This should also be done with any irrigation systems or water features like ponds or fountains.) • Test all smoke alarms and

carbon monoxide detectors. • Clean and test all exhaust fans (this includes dryer vents, stove vents and furnace vents). • Check your sump-pump float and discharge line and test overall operation. • If recommended by the manufacturer, install a protective winter cover on your air conditioning unit. • Clean or replace your furnace filter. • If your home has one, clean and turn off the humidifier and the Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV). • Have your furnace serviced in preparation for winter. • Inspect your fireplace and chimney dampers and service or clean if necessary. (This applies to gas and wood burning fireplaces.) • Winterize your landscape by storing outdoor furniture and covering plants.

Mexican-style breakfast sandwich Start your morning with these deliciously messy, all-out breakfast sandwiches inspired by traditional Mexican flavours. Meat eaters can kick this sandwich up a notch by adding bacon - a salty and savoury combination with the peanut butter. Serve with hot sauce to add some heat. Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 3 minutes (without bacon.) Makes 2 sandwiches

Ingredients •1 tsp (5 ml) white or cider vinegar (optional) •1/3 cup (75 mL) canned black beans, drained or rinsed •2 tsp (10 ml) lime juice Pinch each cumin and salt •3 tbsp (45 ml) coriander, coarsely chopped and divided •3 tbsp (45 ml) peanut butter •2 tbsp (30 ml) mayonnaise •1 tbsp (15 ml) canned adobo peppers in adobo sauce, chopped •2 eggs •2 whole wheat English muffins •2 slices crisp cooked bacon, broken in half (optional) •2 to 4 thin tomato slices

Directions Bring a medium pot of water and vinegar to a simmer (vinegar helps the eggs to set). Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, use a fork to coarsely mash the beans with lime juice, cumin and salt. Stir in half the coriander. In a small bowl, stir peanut butter with mayonnaise and adobo peppers. Crack one egg into a small ramekin or bowl. Slide egg into simmering water. Repeat with the second egg. Simmer for 3 minutes. While eggs are cooking, split and toast English muffins. Remove eggs, one at a time, using a slotted spoon. Pat dry with paper towel and set on a plate. Spread both sides of English muffins with peanut butter mixture. Top base with bacon if using, then tomato slices, dollops of black bean mash, egg and coriander. Finish with tops of English muffins to form 2 sandwiches. Tip: Swap out the poached egg for a fried or scrambled egg, if preferred. – newscanada

Securing your pet in the vehicle Most people wouldn’t think twice about grabbing their pet and taking them for a ride in the car to run some errands or to visit friends and family. However, with an increased focus on distracted driving and overall driving safety, there is growing concern about pet safety in the car. “Many people overlook the potential distraction that a pet can be, especially if they are loose in your vehicle,” Wayne Ross, an insurance expert with Aviva Canada said. “They can distract you from the road, impair your vision, and even attempt to climb on you while driving. Properly securing your pet will ensure you are both safe.” Goossens offers the following tips when you go for a ride:

• Don’t let your pets run loose in the car. • Don’t let your dog hang its head outside the window. • Secure your pets using a pet-friendly seat belt or safety harness. • Crate small pets at all times. • Avoid letting your pets sit on your lap when driving. • Never leave your animal in the car unattended. • Consider installing a dog barrier in your vehicle if you have a hatchback, van or SUV. Properly securing your pets in the car and ensuring they are safe before you hit the road will mean one less distraction. More detailed information is available from your insurance broker or at AvivaCanada.com. –newscanada

Tips for moving to a new home with pets Making the transition to a new home can be stressful for everyone, including your pets. “We often are anxious about our pets’ adjustment to a new home,” Lincoln Thompson, a broker-owner with Royal LePage said. “To ensure a safe and successful transition, homeowners can plan ahead and take initiatives to make the process as smooth as possible.” Before the move. Pull out moving boxes in advance of packing to allow your pet an opportunity to become accustomed to them. Orient your pet to its carrier or crate so that you have a safe place for her before and after the move. Try to keep routines as stable as possible during the flurry of packing and preparation for the big move. Research by-laws and pet licensing in your new area. Contact the local municipality for requirements concerning domestic animals in your new area. Ask about licensing and by-laws concerning the responsibilities of pet owners.

Also check into the availability of off-leash areas for dogs in your new community. Special considerations for rural areas. If your new home is in a rural area, be sure to learn the rights of farmers when neighbouring pets venture onto their property. Often, farmers have special privileges when it comes to protecting their livestock. Transitioning your pet to your new home. Be prepared for some trepidation, particularly with cats that tend not to take as well to a change in environment. Cats should remain inside for several weeks until they become comfortable with their surroundings. Then, allow them only short accompanied ventures outdoors. Take your dog for several walks each day to help him become familiar with the new area. Avoid walking a dog immediately before leaving for errands or work. Plan to be home for a period of time after those initial walks. That way, the dog will associate his new home with positive outcomes. – newscanada

PLAN NUMBER 5-3-641 WRAP-AROUND VERANDA DESIGN A wraparound veranda and an arch-top dormer window add to the exterior appeal of this single-level design. With its open living areas and flexible floor plan, the home would be ideal for either a growing family or for empty nesters. The den, just off the sky lit foyer, is particularly attractive, with a sloping ceiling, bay window and a view of the front garden. If the homeowners need a third bedroom, this room could easily serve that purpose. An archway off the hall leads to the open living area at the rear of the house, where the family will have plenty of space for all their daily activities. The kitchen is a delight, with a walk-in pantry and a central island, where the cook will be able to talk to other members of the family while preparing the meals. The dining room, which is large enough for entertaining, has a sloping ceiling and is designed to accommodate an optional buffet, if desired. On one side, a door opens to the veranda and at the rear, sliding glass doors offer access to a covered patio. The expansive great room also has a sloping ceiling, as well as a corner fireplace. Large windows make sure this whole area is bright with natural light. Double doors open to the master suite, which has a boxed-out window overlooking the back garden. A four-piece en suite bathroom includes a corner soaker tub and a separate shower. The second bedroom also has a boxed-out window and is located immediately alongside the main bathroom. The double garage has a side door and access to the house through the laundry room. The house is 48 feet wide and 51 feet, 6 inches deep with 1,399 square feet of living space. Plans for design 5-3-641 are available for $625 (set of 5), $710(set of 8) and $778 for a super set of 10. B.C. residents add 7% Prov. Sales Tax. Also add $35.00 for Priority courier charges within B.C. or $65.00 outside of B.C. Please add 5% G.S.T. or 13% H.S.T. (where applicable) to both the plan price and postage charges. Our NEW 47TH Edition of the Home Plan Catalogue containing over 400 plans is available for $15.50 (includes taxes, postage and handling).

Tip of the Month "Fall is around the corner. Upgrade your gutter system to manage leaf and foliage refuse. If your roof is prone to icing during the winter, now is a good time to install heat cable to keep your gutter flowing properly and prevent heavy ice build up."
