With the recent warm weather, the ice at the marsh is slowly melting and giving way for the visiting swans to scratch around and dive to forage for food.

District hears comments on the rewrite of the Zoning Bylaw, OCP

Ken Alexander Free Press

The District of 100 Mile House has finalized the process to update the Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw. Public hearings for both bylaws were held in the District council chambers on March 15. No one spoke to the OCP, but two speakers had comments on the new Zoning Bylaw. While he said there were many positive changes, Nigel Hemingway pointed out a number of areas that he felt needed more work, flexibility and reviews. Advisory group member Don Savjord said he was disappointed chickens and bees were not allowed in residential zones.

However, District planner Joanne He also questioned the reference Doddridge noted there was over- to “Right to Farm” legislation, but all favourable public response to Doddridge noted that it had been allowing chickens and bees, but time corrected in a later draft to address constraints didn’t allow staff ade- the correct legislation – s.555 of the quate time to research associated Local Government Act. regulatory matters.

It states: “100 Mile House is a vibrant resilient community set within a healthy natural environment, where people can thrive personally and economically. Simply put – it is Miles Ahead!” Associated with vision are 14 Community Goals, which have been revised and updated Farstad noted. • Land-use policies have been updated to reflect community consultation, changing conditions and Council initiatives. A stronger emphasis has been placed on support for sustainable economic development. Continued on A2

Zoning Bylaw changes The Zoning Bylaw saw many significant changes, said Farstad. • Included was a comprehensive review to reflect the changing trends of today’s marketplace. • Major revisions included the use of more generic definitions to broaden the range of permitted uses in commercial and industrial zones, reductions in site specific zoning and some reduction in commercial parking and loading requirements. • Secondary suites were included as a permitted use in all single detached dwellings subject to meeting the BC Building Code and an additional parking

space. Coach houses, smaller detached dwellings on the same lot as the principal dwelling, were permitted on zones with large areas. Overall, the Zoning Bylaw was reformatted for ease of readability and the Zoning Map was updated, Farstad explained. “At the public hearing for the Zoning Bylaw, Don Savjord, a member of the Advisory Committee appointed by Council to review the two bylaws, advocated more green initiatives, such as height exemptions for wind turbines and solar panels, alternative servicing options, stronger measures to ensure trail development and green burials. “The other speaker at the public hearing, land surveyor Nigel Hemingway, identified a number of specific concerns, as well as a general comment that the Zoning Bylaw would have too many big-city elements.” Farstad said District councillors referred the questions raised by both speakers to staff for review. Mayor Mitch Campsall thanked everyone who participated in the update and development of the new Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw.

Angelika Langen, co-owner of the Northern Lights Wildlife Society, happily holds onto two black bear cubs. The brothers, Nutmeg and Pepper, were rescued in 100 Mile House after workers accidentally disturbed their den. Several attempts were made to reunite the cubs with their mother, but she never returned.

Second chance for tiny cubs Workers, who disturbed a den, saved cubs after mother abandons them

ith never-used paw pads and tiny eyes that have barely opened, black bear cubs Nutmeg and Pepper appear as fragile as they are cute. The 12-week-old brothers are currently being bottlefed at the Northern Lights Wildlife Society (NLWS) after they were rescued near 100 Mile House on Feb. 17. They were orphaned after workers disturbed their den, causing their mother to flee. Several attempts were made to reunite the male cubs with their mother, but she never returned. A Quesnel-based shelter contacted Peter and Angelika Langen from the NLWS, which has rehabilitated more than 300 bears at its property near Smithers. Angelika said she and Peter called on their network of volunteers to help transport the bears immediately. “We started driving from here, people started driving from there, and in the meantime, you get permission from the government

that we can take them. We got the call here at eight o’clock in the morning, and by [noon], I had the bears in my hands.” The diminutive brothers, one black and one brown, were five weeks old when they arrived at NLWS. They require around-

the-clock care and must be fed every four hours with specialized formula and electrolytes. Despite contracting diarrhea, the cubs doubled in size – from less than one kilogram to almost two kg – in the first week being cared for by NLWS.

“You’re always on edge. The first few months are so critical, but then they go out there and they do their own thing and some succeed and some don’t,” Angelika explained. Another two male cubs about the same age were rushed to the NWLS property – shortly after the 100

Seven-week-old black bear cub, Nutmeg, drank electrolytes to help gain weight after he and his brother, Pepper, arrived at the Northern Lights Wildlife Society shelter in late February.

Mile House cubs arrived – after workers driving a backhoe disturbed their den near Smithers. Despite some criticism of the workers on social media, Langen praised them for digging the cubs out of the ground to save them from suffocation. “If there is a mistake for whatever reason, and there are some lives that could be saved, then people should feel safe to come to us and not being judged and pulled apart afterwards.” All of the cubs were named by the public in a competition on social media, including newcomers Chili and Turmeric. Langen said they were healthy and some were starting to test their wobbly legs for the first time. “The really tiny one, that’s Turmeric, he’s just so determined. You see him and he stands up on his little legs and he’s just shaking, the whole little body is shaking, but he’s standing.” Alicia Bridges is a reporter with the Smithers/Interior News.

The directors agreed to submit two resolutions to the 2016 North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA) conference. The first resolution calls for the NCLGA to lobby senior levels of government to establish a regulatory and enforcement system to ensure that marijuana grow industry waste is disposed of appropriately and will not pollute water systems. The second resolution addresses the provincial responsibility for the treatment of invasive plant species and looks to the NCLGA and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities to lobby the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to provide sufficient funding for the management of invasive plant species that will meet regional strategic management goals.

NATURAL GAS SUPPLY A new assessment released on March 16 indicates British Columbia’s natural gas resources are larger than previously estimated. The report focuses on the potential of the Liard Basin, a resource area within the boundaries of B.C., the Northwest Territories and the Yukon. The new estimate for B.C.’s portion of the Liard Basin is now 848 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of natural gas, up from the province’s previous estimate of 210 tcf. This new resource estimate means B.C.’s total natural gas potential now surpasses 3,400 tcf. If industry could extract 20 per cent of B.C.’s total resource over the long-term, future development and liquefied natural gas (LNG) export operations could be sustainable for more than 160 years.

Residents attending school board meeting BLES Parent Advisory Committee wants school closure decision deferred one year Ken Alexander Free Press

Most area residents who attended the public forum held at Bridge Lake Elementary School (BLES) on March 2 were disappointed about the format and the lack of time they were given on the microphone to address the school trustees. They also felt there was a gag order in place, which prevented them from discussing their

dissatisfaction with administration issues both at the School District #27 (SD27) and local school levels. For her part, SD27 board of trustees chair Tanya Guenther said it was “wonderful to see so many people come out and share their passion” for BLES and the local community. “The board and district staff members recognize that any consideration of school closure is very emotional for everyone involved, including students, parents, school staff, community members and members of the board.” Public consultation is the opportunity for the board to seek further input and information from members of the public, Guenther said, adding it ensures the school board has as much information as possible as part of the decision-making process. “The [trustees] are very appreciative for everyone who has taken

de Vries wants to make sure the trustees understand there will definitely be more children available to go to the school next year. She noted the community has been canvassed and there will be many children ready to be enrolled. It looks like more people want to come and live in rural communities, she said. “If they close that school, it will be so difficult to get it opened again. In the PAC’s delegation notice sent to SD27, PAC members asked the school trustees to forego making a decision on the announced closure or non-closure of BLES, so the decision can be deferred for one year. “[This would allow] the required process of due diligence, proper inquiry as to the relevant facts, full public consultation and fair hearings to be conducted, and related management issues to be dealt with, during that period prior to any decision being made such that the appearance and fact of fair public consultation, good faith, and proper administrative process

Seniors may qualify for assistance

More people than ever qualify for Medical Services Plan (MSP) premiums assistance next year, and it’s important for seniors to check to see if they are eligible, says CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. A recent survey by British Columbia seniors advocate Isobel Mackenzie showed just 39 per cent of seniors knew about MSP premium assistance and 66 per cent pay full premiums when the number

should be fewer than 50 per cent, she explains. “It’s important that everyone who could be benefiting from this MSP assistance is doing so. Every penny counts for many of our seniors, and this assistance will be very helpful.” A one-time application must be filled out specifically for the premium assistance program. Retroactive assistance may be provided for up to the previous six years. Anyone needing help

with forms can contact Barnett’s 100 Mile House constituency office at 7-530 Horse Lake Rd., or phone 250395-3916. Budget 2016 announced changes to MSP and premium assistance effective Jan. 1, 2017, which will help lower-income families, individuals and seniors with the cost of living. The B.C. Liberal government is investing an additional $70 million annually to enhance premium assistance.

About 335,000 people will see their premiums reduced, and an additional 45,000 additional people will no longer pay premiums at all in 2017. As a result of enhancing premium assistance in 2017, a single senior earning up to $45,000 may qualify for reduced premiums. A senior couple earning up to $51,000 may qualify for reduced premiums. This translates into a savings of up to $480 per year for a senior

Forest Grove and area residents asked for input on Area H’s future

By Doris E Rufli The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) invited residents throughout Area H to attend a meeting at the Forest Grove Community Hall to gather information and ideas towards updating the South Cariboo Official Community Plan (OCP) on Feb. 11. The existing OCP was adopted in 1996 and it needs updating. Several note boards were set up, and residents were asked to consider what they would like to see in the future – the date chosen was set at Feb. 1, 2036. The note boards included: South Cariboo area priorities; planning the future; and what matters the most. There was a community

mapping station, where ideas and concerns could be added. There are four stages to the OCP rewrite process. September to December 2015 was the start-up phase, and January to March 2016 is set aside for issue identification and awareness stage. April to June will see the building of a community plan, which should be finalized by July/ August. Areas covered include seasonal residences as well as tourism, climate changes, an aging and shrinking population, water, industry, local transportation, as well as agriculture and forestry. Speaker Graham Farstad led a team of

planning consultants and environmental specialist Peter Sanders encouraged those attending to put forward thoughts on what should be considered and included in the new OCP. Hearty discussions ensued before and after the short presentation, with questions asked and answered, as well as a number of suggestions made to be considered for the ongoing process. For those who were unable to be present at the meeting, a survey is available for input in paper form at various locations in

couple and $324 per year for a single senior. Once the MSP changes from Budget 2016 are implemented Jan. 1, 2017, nearly two million British Columbians will pay no premiums. The premium assistance program is just one support for lower-income seniors. The recently released 11th edition of the BC Seniors’ Guide provides information on a variety of programs and supports to help seniors in communities throughout B.C.

The South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) nominations for the 22nd Annual Business Excellence Awards are now closed and the top 4 in each category have been chosen, says SCCC executive director Shelly Morton. “We started doing the voting for the winner of each category differently last year. We now have the award dinner attendees vote for the winner.” “Last year, it was a lot of work for the volunteers to count the paper votes, this year we are thinking of doing it electronically.” There were almost 150 nominations this year and 127 of them were posted on line, Morton says, adding the total was a huge increase from last year.

efore His ordeal of crucifixion, Jesus Christ desired to strengthen and comfort His beloved disciples by assuring them His approaching suffering, death, resurrection and finally His ascension to heaven will not be a final separation. “Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in Me. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” With His dying breath, Jesus assured the sinner on the cross of eternal life for his confession, saying “You will be with Me in paradise.” I give you My word of commitment, Jesus said, to continue working earnestly for you in co-operation with My Father in heaven while you’re building

GUEST SHOT

hile we have been getting snippets in the media regarding the size of the deficit the Justin Trudeau government is willing to run this year, it certainly isn’t the $10 billion the Prime Minister promised during last fall’s federal election campaign. The electorate was obviously duped by the young Liberal leader with the good bloodline and a great presence when the camera lights go on. That $10-billion deficit seemed reasonable when we were told it would be spent on breathing life into Canada struggling economy. We were told it would provide jobs with an infrastructure program and most Canadians would have more jingle in their jeans, thanks to the new child-care program and a tax break for middle-class Canadians. We were told the federal budget would be balanced before the next federal election. That was the election promises and we were played for fools. The landscape is certainly different now. We are looking at a $29.4 billion deficit for 2016/17, $29 billion for 2017/18, and $22.8 billion for 2018/19. The worst news is there isn’t a clearly defined timeline to return to a balanced budget. This should be a huge concern for every Canadian, especially younger, working Canadians who will pay for this spending spree in the future. Remember it was these young Canadians, Mr. Trudeau relied on to get out to the polls and help him in his bid for the government’s top job. This may be the very group that will stuff the ballot boxes in the next election to ensure this spend-nowpay-later plan doesn’t continue. Running government deficits can help breathe life into struggling economies. However, the money has to create jobs if it is to work. Infrastructure projects are a prime example of helping the economy grow by putting people to work with the wages trickling down the line through consumerism. Obviously, it helps the businesses that are doing the construction work. The Liberals have budgeted $120 billion over 10 years, with much of it weighted to the back end of the term. And they don’t have a jobs plan to go with it. That is not going to help the economy of today and it could be a recipe for disaster if the Liberals continue to keep running deficits. It appears the Liberal government is putting its eggs in the consumerism basket and that is fraught with folly. Consumer spending without jobs plan doesn’t generate new revenue, and that doesn’t pay down the debt. It results in governments (ultimately the taxpayers) down the road paying for old debt and accumulated interest, rather than providing services Canadians really need or helping the economy to grow. Right now, it appears that Mr. Trudeau is just another spend-and-borrow Liberal.

of love and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” 1 John 3:22 God for His son, Jesus’, sake freely forgives us not seeing the vileness of sin in us. He recognizes the likeness of Jesus in us in whom we believe and as a result God highly esteems His children. To pray in His name means that we recognize and honour His terms of His covenant with Him, such as accepting and embracing Jesus’ benevolent nature as our own. Further, we manifest His spirit of heartfelt love and exercise the service of love towards everyone. This constituted the joy of Jesus to glorify God’s name even amid all His humiliations and suffering, and when we know Him, it will be our joy, too.

Visitor appreciates medical assistance

To the editor: My wife and I were travelling from our home in Prince George to Kamloops for specialist medical services on Feb. 8. We overnighted at our son’s home in 108 Mile Ranch. My wife, Grace, had a medical emergency around 1 a.m. on Feb. 9 that required paramedic services and admission to 100 Mile District General Hospital. Within minutes of our call to 9-1-1, volunteers from the 108 Mile Volunteer Fire Department arrived and effectively assessed the situation.

Again within a few more minutes, an ambulance arrived and attendants, Brandon and Brenda, took over. Not only were they quick and professional in preparing my wife for the trip to town, but more important was their compassionate reassurance to myself and family that “things would be fine.” The firefighters and paramedics – what a great team. At the hospital, the exemplary interest and service continued. The lady at the receiving desk was exceptional, and considering the early morning hour, she did everything possible to get my wife settled comfortably in

her room. (Grace told me, they also checked on her frequently during the night.) A lab technician (on call at home) arrived shortly after we did and performed blood work and other tests. The same lady was there again in the early morning to do further tests and lab work, so the results would be available for Dr. Don Street who would be in at 7 a.m. Dr. Street arrived, viewed the test results, visited and examined my wife. He quickly assessed the situation, discussed his conclusions with us and made recommendations for follow-up tests when we returned home.

He was exceedingly pleasant and thorough. He then permitted her to be discharged. So, at 8 a.m. we left the hospital, travelled to Kamloops and made the scheduled appointments. Our thanks go out to everyone. 100 Mile House residents have a tremendous group of people caring for their health and medical needs. Please treat them well – they deserve it.

To the editor: The federal government enjoys a favourable international reputation that on the subject of animal welfare, it does not deserve. Here are the facts obtained from the World Animal Protection Index. Over 50 countries have been evaluated on their concern for animal welfare on a scale from A to G. European countries are some of the best with mostly in the A and B. The United Kingdom has earned an A and India is rated with a C, but Canada is lagging behind with a D. Canada is worse than China and India in these categories: protection of animals in captivity, scientific research, protection of farm animals, and recognition of animal sentience. The federal laws look good by stating animal abusers can receive fines and jail sentences, but the reality is only one-third of one per cent of abuse complaints ever lead to criminal charges. The federal government ignored public opinion back in 2012 after taking a poll asking whether Canadians approved of cosmetic

testing on animals. They are still continuing this practice although 88 per cent of us disapproved. There are no federal regulations for animals in zoos and circuses or for farm animals during rearing. Animals can be transported for up to 52 hours with no food, water, or rest. Animals left in pounds for a minimum of three days can be used for research under

the “Animals For Research Act” (RSO 1990 c. A22 s. 20-2). Many amendments to existing laws have been presented to Ottawa that have been rejected by the Senate because they favour “animal use industries.” While many countries throughout the world are making progressive changes to animal welfare laws, federal laws in Canada have

had no significant changes since 1892. Canada is still in the Dark Ages concerning animal welfare. Please help our animals by contacting your local member of Parliament and voicing your outrage against government-sanctioned animal abuse.

March 24: Celebrate World TB Day To the editor: The prophets of doom have been proven correct: largely due to global apathy, tuberculosis has become the world’s greatest communicable killer, even greater than HIV/AIDS. For years, the wealthy nations of the world have stood by and dismissed TB as a third-world problem, considered only after such things as local politics and

geopolitical considerations have been dealt with. But just because the world stands still doesn’t mean the TB bacillus does, and everincreasingly virulent strains have evolved, overcoming onceeffective antibiotic treatments. TB is a disease of destitution, and while treatment can often still be effective, the disease thrives whenever deeply impov-

erished living conditions are found, which is why it remains endemic in many of Canada’s aboriginal communities. Today (March 24) is World TB Day, and it’s a chance for Canada to publicly renew its commitment to global TB treatment via the Global Fund, now due for replenishment. But as TB is a symptom of deep poverty, these funds must

not be diverted from other development programs. For many years now, Canada’s aid budget has operated from a place of robbing Peter to pay Paul, while our total commitment to foreign assistance has declined to the lowest of all major industrial nations. Nathaniel Poole Victoria

BC VIEWS

y recent columns on British Columbia’s struggle with the growing westward migration of transients have produced responses that fall mainly into two groups. The largest is people relieved that somebody is questioning the urban media narrative. That’s the one where drifters, drug addicts, welfare shoppers and thieves are the victims, and working people whose hard-earned communities are being degraded are the problem because of their selfish, uncaring attitudes. Then there are readers so marinated in our nanny-state education, media and political system they object to anything other than a big-government response. They tend to ask, what’s your solution, Tom? As someone who has lost one relative to heroin addiction and almost lost another, I reflect on the history of successful addiction treatment. That is one of detox and abstinence. That’s why I oppose the failed model of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, where resources are poured into concentrated housing and “harm reduction” that

He described himself as a former Edmonton resident who was hitch-hiking around, going from shelter to shelter and ending up camped in the squat. He was impressed by the tidy room with three meals a day he was being given, in a “low barrier” facility where booze and drugs are brought in, no questions asked. What he was really looking forward to, in addition to accommodations, was an opportunity to kick back and play his favourite video game. That would be Grand Theft Auto, where your character runs around stealing cars, escaping police and meeting with criminal gangs. It’s popular with adolescents, which these days means anyone under 30.

RCMP investigating after dog shot and killed CHASE - RCMP in Chase are investigating the discovery of a dead dog north of Celista. Early on Sunday (March 20) morning in the Crowfoot Mountain Snowmobile Club parking lot, Jay Foster's friend found the male bulldog or bulldog cross with a fatal gunshot wound in the head. Foster later posted the photos to Facebook, noting the dog had no identifying tattoos and looked healthy. Both the Chase RCMP and the BC SPCA have been notified. Police said the dog was not tortured. According to provincial legislation, an owner can legally shoot his own dog or property owners can shoot dogs who are menacing people or livestock as long as it's done in a humane manner. Because the incident appears to have taken place on Crown land, the investigation will remain active. Prestigious award for West Kelowna winery KELOWNA - A West Kelowna winery has added a feather to its wine vintage hat after winning a wine judging competition held in France earlier this month. The Kalala Organic Estate Winery had placed in the Top 10 twice before in the Chardonnay du Monde contest (2010 and 2014). But this year, of the 782 wine samples from 39 countries that entered the competition, the Kalala 2013 Chardonnay Icewine received the highest number of points, granting them the top spot in the prestigious competition. “This is a great honour, not only for us, but for Canada and the Okanagan,” said Karnail Singh Sidhu, owner and viticulturist at Kalala Organic Estate Winery. “This is a very competitive competition, so it is wonderful to be recognized at this level, among some of the best winemakers in the world.” The Chardonnay du Monde is unique in its international scope and diversity. In 2016, the competition welcomed 300 international expert judges, in addition to the tremendous number of global entries. The competition also encourages a strict focus on quality, involving a rigorous selection process for judges and the use of scientific criteria for tasting.

While attending a nearby grass fire, Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department and 100 Mile House Fire Rescue members received a callout to a structure fire near the Canim Lake Band (CLB) around 4 p.m. on March 18.

100 Mile House Fire Rescue had a busy three days

Around 3 p.m. on March 18, 100 Mile House Fire Rescue responded with 10 members to two mutual aid callouts to assist Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department (FGVFD). The first fire was a grass fire located at Buffalo Creek area and Fire Rescue crews worked with Forest Grove firefighters to suppress the fire and were on scene for a few hours. While at this scene, a second call was received around 4 p.m. by the FGVFD for a structure fire near the Canim Lake Reserve. Fire Rescue crews responded to this fire with three apparatus to assist the FGVFD members. They were on scene for about three hours. The Canim Lake Band provided water resources. All occupants were out of the house at the time of arrival and the

fire was contained to the area of origin, says Fire Rescue fire chief Roger Hollander.

Downed power lines Around 9:11 p.m. on March 20, Fire Rescue responded to power lines down at Fifth Street and Highway 97. Upon arrival, it was determined that a semi-truck had struck a power pole severing the pole at its base. The driver was already out of the vehicle and was not injured. 100 Mile House Fire Rescue crews estab-

lished a perimeter and escorted a family to safety as they were in a nearby vehicle but were advised to initially stay in place. BC Hydro crews restored power to the area shortly after. Hollander would like to remind folks, that if they find themselves in a situation where they are in a vehicle with power lines down, they stay in the vehicle until hydro crews disconnect the power and first responders determine it is safe to leave the vehicle.

Vagina Monologues very successful The presentation was both heartwarming and heartbreaking Heather Nelson Free Press

The Vagina Monologues performed at the Martin Exeter Hall in 100 Mile House on Feb. 26 was a sold-out success, says co-ordinator Meg Kennedy-Gunn. The cast did an amazing job, Meg says, adding the cast came together and made it happen – taking time out of their busy lives. “The subject needs to be kept in front of people. Sometimes people can get lost in what’s real; their reality may not be one of continuing violence as other people experience.” The play came together, with co-

ordinators Meg and Gail Edinger along with their cast, within just five weeks. Meg says the performers were encouraged not to memorize, but just present the story. On Valentines Day 1998, Eve Ensler, author of Vagina Monologues, along with a group of women started V-Day. The core demand was simple – stop violence against women and girls. Ensler allows groups around the world to produce a performance of the play, as well as other works created by V-Day. These groups can use the proceeds for local individual projects and programs that work to end violence against women and girls, Ensler says, adding she believes local women know best what their communities need. A total of $4,207.35 was raised at the Feb. 26 presentation. The proceeds were given to the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre, which is located in the South Cariboo Business Centre, 475 Birch Ave.

Gail Edinger, who co-ordinated the Vagina Monologues with Meg Kennedy-Gunn, introduced longtime area resident Helen Horn who presented her piece, entitled The Flood, during the dress rehearsal on March 3. The performance was held at the Martin Exeter Hall in 100 Mile House and it was a huge hit.

Sports Wranglers win conference

Ken Alexander Free Press

They did it! The 100 Mile House Wranglers skated off the ice on March 21 with their hometown fans cheering wildly after they knocked off the Summerland Steam 4-1 to capture the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference Championships. Summerland opened the scoring in the first period, but the Wranglers had a huge second stanza. Ryan Friesen (Brett Harris) tied the game 1-1 when he punched the puck through Steam goalie Matthew Huber’s pads in an intense scramble in front of the net on a power play midway through the second. It was sweet revenge for Friesen, who was released by the Steam right after training camp last year, as he wanted to prove them wrong and he certainly did with two goals in the game. Nick McCabe scored the winning goal unassisted at 6:08, and Friesen (Austin Turner, Tavis Roch) got the insurance marker at 2:45 on a power play. From there it was kitty-bar-thedoor. Wranglers coach Dale Hladun says game 5 was similar to games 3 and 4. “They scored first and then we ended up with a 3-1 lead going into the third. The difference this time was we just kept the lead. “We did talk about the series as it went on – we felt that with our play, we were wearing them down. I felt Summerland gave us their best, but they just didn’t have enough gas in the tank to finish it off.” Hladun says he thought his boys played well as a unit; goal tending was strong; and the compete level was high.

FAST bytes Wranglers schedule The Okanagan/ Shuswap Conference champions, the 100 Mile House Wranglers, will be travelling to Kimberley to play the first two games of the 2016 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Championship on March 26-27. Then they will host the Kimberley Dynamiters at home for games 3 and 4 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre, with the puck dropping at 7 p.m.on March 29 and 30. If necessary, game 5 will also be held in 100 Mile on March 31, and then the series would shift back to Kimberley for games 6 and 7 April 2 and 3.

Ken Alexander photo

Although he was almost buried by the Summerland defenceman, Wrangler Ryan Friesen tucked the puck through the pads of Steam goalie Matthew at 10:21 of the second period to knot the score at one goal apiece. Friesen scored two power-play goals in game 5 on March 21 to help the Wranglers become the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference champions.

“I’m real proud of the kids.” He notes his players are in really good shape thanks to the Action Fitness workouts. “It’s not like we exploded past them; we maintained good tempo and they just couldn’t go with us.” Series results The Wranglers beat Summerland 3-2 in double overtime at home in game 1; lost 2-1 at home in game 2; won game 5-4 in overtime in game 3 in Summerland; won 5-4 in double overtime in Summerland in game 4; and collected the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference Championship banner

after eliminating Summerland 3-1 in game 5 at home. It has been an incredible playoff run for the third-year Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) team. They have battled all the way through the playoffs – grit and determination, the will to win, great defence, impeccable goal tending, and team scoring have been the magic ingredients. “Our team is built like a playoff team. We’re big and tough, and the longer a series goes, it will go in our favour – that’s been showing in every series so far,” Hladun explains.

Now, the Wranglers take on the Kootenay Conference champions Kimberley Dynamiters for the 2016 KIJHL Championship. Noting Cole Zimmerman still has one more day left in his three-game suspension, Hladun figures there’s a good chance Brady Ward and Michael Lynch will be ready for game 1 of the KIJHL finals. “If they’re not ready to play, we won’t play them, especially in the first two games.” He adds the extra will help all of the players heal up a bit.

“We all want to win, but the objective for the year is Nationals and we’re really hoping both of them can win some matches.” He notes the boys slept all the way home from the tourney because their were tired and sick. Briggs says his daughter, Ali Briggs, was also at the PAC tournament and she won the gold medal in the Under 57 kg senior women’s division. “She won all of her matches very decisively.

108 Mile Ranch hockey player wins provincial championship

Ken Alexander Free Press

108 Mile Ranch hockey player Cailey Mellott is a pretty happy young lady these days, as the female AAA midget hockey team she plays with – the Northern Capitals – won the 2015/16 Female Midget AAA (FMAAA) Provincial Championship in Coquitlam on March 18-19. The Prince George team, which also won the provincials last year, was the underdog to the Greater Vancouver Comets that finished in first place in the league this year. However, the Capitals repeated as provincial champions by sweeping the Comets in two games. The March 18 game saw the Capitals fall behind 1-0 in the first period, and the Comets doubled the lead less than a minute into the second stanza. Noting they had split the regular season games, Cailey says the Comets have a “really good” offensive system. “We hadn’t adjusted to it yet and they were getting a lot of breaks and chances and they capitalized on a couple. But our coach [Mario Desjardins] recognized [the system they were using] and we adjusted to it and we shut them down [for the rest of the] second and third, and scored a few goals.” Cailey says they started playing a trap, which meant “everyone had to have their heads on a swivel and know where

the players were around them.” Capitals’ Myah Bowal from Terrace cut the lead in half around eight minutes into the second, and then at 2:22 of the frame, Hunter Mosher from Chetwynd tied it up on a rebound. The teams went into the third period tied at two apiece, and Cailey says they had control of the play with their forechecking and “shut them down defensively.” Three minutes into the period, Bowal scored on a nice pass from Mosher, giving the

Capitals their first lead of the game. Try as they may, the Comets couldn’t shake the great defensive work of their northern opponents. Cailey, who plays centre, says her team got a penalty late in the game and the Comets pulled their goalie to have a sixon-four advantage, but Mosher scored an empty-net goal in the last minute of the contest. She adds there were a lot of penalties called during the period. “She [referee] was letting us get away with a

lot in the first two periods. It was rough ... it was playoff hockey for sure.” Cailey notes the Comets were getting frustrated and started taking a lot of penalties. She says they had a lot of fan support because of the parents, grandparents and other relatives who showed up for the games. “We had more fans than them or just as many. It was pretty cool.” In game 2, the Northern Capitals scored on the second shift of the first period when Mosher found the back of the net behind the Comets’ goalie. “We played a trap for the rest of the game and it was very effective. My dad says it’s ‘boring’ hockey. “Everything they practised and all of their systems we figured them out, and

every time they tried to do something, we would just stop them and the puck would go back into their end.” Cailey says there was a big celebration when the final buzzer sounded. “It was pretty cool. Gloves, helmets and neck guards were flying.” The Capitals will now take on the champion of the Alberta Major Midget Female Hockey League (AMMFHL) in the Pacific Midget Female Regionals in Prince George on April 1-3 for the right to represent the Pacific region at the 2016 ESSO Cup. The ESSO Cup is Hockey Canada’s National Female Midget Championship and it will take place in Weyburn, Sask. on April 19-25.

Peewees played like giants

The 100 Mile House Wranglers peewee team went to the 2016 Spring Showdown in West Kelowna on March 19-20 and it came home with a silver medal. Twelve teams from all over British Columbia participated in the tournament. It was good fast paced hockey, says team spokesperson Kyra Hopson. The first game was against the Prince George Predators and the Wranglers won 7-3. Kyson Hopson got a hat trick, while Jadyn Monical popped in two goals, and Virgil Kennedy and Leandro Lang notched one each. Assists went to: Hopson, three; Colby Glen, two; and Hannah Duff, one. The second game was a nail bitter against West Kelowna Grizzlies. The team was down a goal going late into the third, so the coaches pulled the goalie for the extra man advantage and tied it up with a goal from Kennedy (Hopson). The game ended in a 3-3 tie with other two goals from Hopson. Duff added an assist. The team was on fire for its third game against West Kelowna Ice Burgers winning 12-2. Brayden MeyersBrundage and Hopson both got hat tricks. Shayne Sutton popped in two markers. Leandro Lang, Taylor

into the finals. Hopson got a hat trick, while Glen notched two goals and Lang got one. Assists went to: Hopson, one; Lang, one; and Daniels, one.

Another successful season

By Ron Graves The 100 Mile House Old Timers Hockey Association is a co-ed hockey league that has just completed its 12th very successful hockey season. Our players range in age from 35 to 85 years and have a wide range of skills from beginners to seasoned veterans. We welcome all players who wish to play in a competitive but friendly atmosphere. All games are refereed by qualified officials. Each year, players register to play and a draft is held prior to the season opener to determine the makeup of the teams. The league operates under the umbrella and

ers in our league are covered by CARHA’s medical/liability insurance program, and

all game statistics are recorded on its website. This year, we had more than 60 players

on four teams, playing 20 regular season games, and four playoff games. Our wind-up Awards night, banquet and dance will be held April 30.

We wish to acknowledge, and thank our sponsors: TIMBERMART Ltd., Sunrise Ford Sales Ltd., Century Home Hardware Ltd. and Rona Interlakes for their continuing financial support.

Team knocks off Summerland 3-1 From A15

Hladun says the boys are really proud of winning that conference banner. “It would be easy for them to just to sit on their laurels and think everything else is icing on the cake – but they’re not. They had a quick team meeting after the game; they enjoyed the banner; they played some music, but they said, ‘let’s get to bed early, let’s do the right things and there’s more of this mountain to climb’. “I really like the leadership in the room right now.”

The Dynamiters, who disposed of the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in five games in the Kootenay Conference Playoff series, are the defending KIJHL champions, and Hladun says they will bring goaltending, speed and skill to the table. Noting they split their two games with Kimberley early in the season, Hladun says they’re very skilled, and fans are going to see a team with “pretty speedy” forwards. “But, they haven’t seen a team like us. They haven’t faced a big, tough team that can actually skate with them.

“They can play with us for a game, but in a series, I feel our kids are going to take a toll on them, too. I’m very confident that is what’s going to happen – a lot of good is going to happen for our club.” Championship schedule The Wranglers travel to Kimberley for games 1 and 2 on March 26 and 27. Then they are back in 100 Mile House for games 3 and 4 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on March 29 and 30, with the puck dropping at 7 p.m.

If necessary, game 5 will be in 100 Mile House and games 6 and 7 will be in Kimberley. Tickets go on sale at the Wranglers office today (March 24). Tom Bachynski says “Last night, Wrangler Nation came of age. It was by far the loudest and proudest I have ever heard. “We’ve provided the canvas; the team and its fans are creating a spectacular painting.” The KIJHL champion will represent the league at the Cyclone Taylor Cup in Victoria, April 7-10.

George, and while she misses her family and her pets, she is billeting with her dad’s friends and they are taking good care of her. “They’re both great cooks, so it’s awesome.” Cailey’s mom, Cristy, helped with a little bit of history.

“Cailey started skating when she was two years old and she was pretty good.” Cristy recalls taping candies to hockey pucks and tossing them down the outdoor rink. Cailey would have to skate down to them “and not crawl but skate” to get

the candy, she says with a laugh. Cailey started in minor hockey when she was four years old. Later because her sister, Cassidy, was two years older, Cailey would play in the same division. Now, she still has another year of midget

I don’t sell my work but my family members have a lot of hand-woven table linens and rugs,

The Watch Lake & District Women’s Institute (WI) February meeting celebrated our founder’s birthday with a marvelous gluten-free cake made by Karin Forbes. Our founder, Adelaide Hunter Hoodless, has been called one of the most famous Canadian  women. However, she is one of the most obscure because she is known with such familiarity in some circles, yet completely unknown  in others. From humble beginnings, Adelaide was born on Feb, 27, 1857. Her public life began after she became a wife and mother. It was instigated by a tragic event: her fourth child died at the tender age of 14 months. Adelaide was devastated and seemingly blaming herself for this tragedy, Adelaide’s campaign sought to raise the level of education for girls and to put supports in place for women so they might safeguard

their families. Her legacy is farreaching. She is credited as a co-founder of the Women’s Institute, the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), the National Council of Women and the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON). She was also a powerful force behind the  formation of three faculties of Household Science. She achieved  national recognition in her 20 years of public life.  She died in 1910, one day short of her 53rd birthday. We were delighted to approve an excellent bursary application from Alex Forbes, grandson of Life Member Karin Forbes, who joined our WI in 1970. Further donations were approved and sent to the Queen Alexander Hospital, Clinton 4-H Club, 100 Mile & District General Hospital Auxiliary and Royal Inland Hospital. We continued planning the WI District Convention, which will be attended by all

Our project is to purchase a new GLIDESCOPE For the 100 Mile Hospital. This potential lifesaving unit is used in emergency care for airway management. Cost is approximatley $30,000.

By Roy Allan fter 25 years of service and upon reaching his 90th birthday, Watch Lake – North Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (WL-NGLVFD) firefighter Les Hewitt decided to hang up his turnout gear for the last time. At the annual general meeting of the WL-NGLVFD in February, he was honoured by his colleagues for his faithful service to the fire department and the community with the presentation of an inscribed statue of a firefighter.

The inscription reads: “Presented to Les Hewitt on your 90th birthday in recognition of your many years of service.” WL-NGLVFD fire chief Andy Palaniak says Les will be greatly missed. “He has been a vital member of the fire department who has, over his 25 years, seldom missed a training session or callout. “In addition, he has readily volunteered extra time w h e n needed to help with hall maintenance or equipment repair. His engineering skills and

mechanical knowledge have been instrumental in keeping the aging emergency vehicles running.” On March 12, his birthday was celebrated by family, neighbours and members of the fire department at a get-together at Wind in the Pillows, the home and bed-and-breakfast owned by Gail and Brad Potter. Four daughters and one son accompanied by four of their own children travelled from the Prairies to celebrate with their father. The guests paid tribute to a man who began

to devote so much of his time to the community at an age when most people are thinking of retirement. After a lifetime of careers and interests involving farming, flying (pilot of small planes, crop dusters and hot air balloons), astronomy, computing, machining small parts, and building a portable mill, perhaps it is time to relax, enjoy his retirement and maybe restore another vintage automobile. Roy Allan is the WL-NGLVFD society board president.

Take 100 Meal Journey

March is Nutrition Month and the Interior Health Registered Dietitians (IHRD) will be joining forces with the Dietitians of Canada to encourage Canadians to take the “100 Meal Journey” by making small changes to their eating, one meal at a time. “The average person eats around 100 meals in a month, so that is 100 opportunities to make positive changes to your eating habits over the next month and beyond,” says Nadine Baerg, Public Health Dietitian. “By focusing on one meal at a time you can make small lasting changes that you can stick with.”

Eating well can boost your health and help you feel your best. When it comes to making healthier choices, IHRD recommends starting with small changes – one meal at a time. “Dietitians of Canada chose the theme Take a 100 Meal Pledge this year, to encourage Canadians to make one or two small changes per meal, local dietician Lauren Bock says, adding this is practiced over a month.” “Trying to take on too many changes at once is overwhelming. It’s better to make one simple change, than working on too many goals at once.” The first step, says Bock, is to “choose your change.”

“Think about your eating habits; where can you make a positive change; how you can make it really simple to start; and substitute some food for a healthy one. Consider if there is something in your environment you can change to make the healthier choice the easiest.” Some other simple changes that can make a big difference towards health is to fill more of your plate with vegetables; choose whole grain instead of white bread; serve smaller portions; pledge to avoid second helpings; enjoy fruit for snacks instead of sweet or salty treats; drink (fizzy) water in place of sug-

ary beverages, like pop or speciality hot drinks; and keep high-calorie snacks out of sight – keep healthy snacks, such as fresh fruit, in sight. Bock explains. “People can cook more meals at home planning for leftovers, which make great packed lunches. Sit at a table, with the TV off, and be mindful of your meal.” For more information, visit the Dietitians of Canada website: http://www. d i e t i t i a n s . c a / Yo u rHealth/Nutrition.

HOME Improvement

Home projects to help save money I

t's remodeling season, and with so many projects on the to-do list, which should you tackle first? While some projects provide great long-term return on investment, a few simple ones can provide instant savings. Here are the top home spring projects to help you save money: Caulk around windows and doors - Stop air leaks around your home by sealing existing gaps and cracks. Use caulking or weather stripping around doors and windows. Installing a door sweep is also a good idea. Insulate your home - Use insulation with a high R-value, such as Roxul Comfortbatt, which can be used to top up insulation in your attic. Aim for an R-value of 50 or a depth of 16 inches. For whole home efficiency, ensure other areas of your home, such as crawl spaces, basement headers, walls and ceilings, are well insulated. It will

keep your house cool in the warm weather and take the stress off your air conditioning unit. Clean your AC unit - Come spring, it's not uncommon to find an air conditioner's condenser and compressor blocked up with dirt and debris. This can result in greater stress on the unit, causing it to work harder. Giving

it a thorough cleaning is easy and can help maximize your AC unit's service life while minimizing your energy bill. Plant trees - Direct sunlight can heat up surfaces and building materials, as well as the interior temperature of your home. Consider planting trees in strategic locations to provide shade and reduce cool-

ing costs. Install a rain barrel - Water is an important, but costly resource. Installing a rain barrel is an easy and affordable measure to reduce your water consumption, while keeping your lawn and garden looking great. These simple home maintenance tasks can be well worth the effort.

Our passion. Your results.

Power tool safety tips

ower tools can dramat ic a l ly reduce the time it takes to complete home improvement projects. Professional contractors regularly rely on power tools for cutting and sanding, and many

do-it-yourself renovators follow suit and invest in power tools to help get the job done. But power tools, in spite of their usefulness, are not without risk. Power nailers, chain saws and table saws account for the great-

est number of injuries. Keeping safe is of the utmost priority when using power tools. Here's how: • Read all manufacturers' instructions and guidelines before use. • Keep your tools clean and in proper

operating condition. • Use the right tool for the job. • Always wear eye protection, such as safety glasses or goggles. • Wear standard cotton or leather work gloves to protect hands. • Consider the use of earplugs or earmuffs with loud power tools. • Don't use power tools in proximity to flammable vapors, dust or construction materials. • Always check that wires are kept away from blades. • Maintain a tight grip on a tool. • Do not overreach when using tools, and maintain balance. • Pay attention when working with any power tool. • Only use attachments specifically recommended for the power tools and ensure proper installation. • Unplug all power tools during breaks and anytime when tools are not in use. • Routinely inspect tools for damage. • Keep tools stored in secure locations when not in use.

A

fter a few months of chilly temperatures, come spring, many homeowners are eager to throw open their windows and doors and breathe new life into their homes. Simple changes made now - even before the weather begins to warm up - can improve interior spaces and brighten the atmosphere of a home. • Go plant shopping. Research from NASA suggests adding at least one plant in your home per 100 square feet is efficient enough to clean air. Fresh foliage also makes a home feel warm and inviting. Watering and misting plants introduces moisture into indoor air, which can make rooms overcome with dry air from heating systems feel comfortable. Just be sure to avoid overwatering plants, which can lead to mold growth. • Swap out throw pillows. Accent pillows on beds and sofas are quick and inexpensive ways to add new bursts of color to rooms. You may be able to make over a room's entire color

scheme with new pillows. Invest in pillows that you can switch with each season so your decor will never look tired or dull. • Clean existing light fixtures. Another way to brighten the mood in a home is to periodically clean light fixtures to make sure they are working effectively. Spend time dusting them and cleaning off any accumulated debris. If need be, switch out old lamp shades for newer ones that let more light shine through. If inadequate lighting is a problem no matter how many lamps you have, consult with an electrician about installing more overhead and accent lighting. • Give rugs and floors a deep cleaning. Recirculated air may be full of dust and other microscopic particles that end up blowing throughout your home. Also, it's easy to track in dirt and other materials on your shoes that become imbedded in carpeting. At least once a year, rent or enlist the services of carpet and upholstery cleaners to give floors a thorough

cleaning. You may be surprised at how clean and fresh a home looks and smells once rugs and carpets are deepcleaned. You also can make a dry carpet cleaner using baking soda, corn starch and desired fresh herbs for fragrance. Sprinkle and then vacuum up after a few hours. • Color-coordinate bookshelves. Group all books with similarly colored covers together for an instant and eyeappealing look.

• Simmer some homemade home deodorizer. In a large pot, boil water and some scented herbs, such as rosemary, citrus rinds, vanilla, or lavender. The aroma will waft through the home, creating a pleasing scent. • Invest in new window treatments. Lightweight draperies or new blinds or shades can transform the look of a room. Be sure to keep curtains and blinds open during the day to maximize the hours of sunlight.

Homeowners can make some simple changes while they're stuck indoors and reap the benefits when the weather warms up again.

Spring HOME Improvement

How to make spring projects more eco-friendly

T

he arrival of warmer weather means different things to different people. Some anticipate opportunities for outdoor fun, while others may be considering redecorating or remodeling their homes. For the latter group, home improvement season provides a great opportunity to make homes more eco-friendly. When planning home improvement projects, it's best to first choose a project and then look for ways to make the project more environmentally friendly. Such an approach may not only benefit the environment, but it also may benefit homeowners' bottom lines.

Interior decorating Longer days and warmer temperatures often translate into wanting to freshen up the interior of a home. Heavy draperies and comforters are put away, and lighter fabrics are taken out of storage. Whenever possible, reuse or repurpose items you already have rather than purchasing new items. Longer drapes can be cut and hemmed to be used as window treatments in other rooms. Making a patchwork blanket out of old T-shirts is a crafty project that makes use of items that would otherwise be destined for landfills. When laundering linens, skip the energy-using dryer and let items line dry in the sun and fresh air. If you decide to purchase some new items, look for products made from sustainable or organic fabrics. Hemp and bamboo textiles have grown in popularity. Hemp and bamboo plants grow quickly, and their durability makes these materials smart choices. When replacing items around the house, donate older items to a charitable organization.

Flowers and plants Spring and summer call to mind beautiful blooming plants. Relying on native, sustainable plants is practical, environmentally friendly and cost-effective. According to the National Wildlife Federation, sustainable plants are native plants. Native plants sustain local wildlife more effectively than non-native alternatives, so include native plants in your sustainable garden. Native plants also are less reliant on pesticides and herbicides to keep them healthy and viable. Don't forget to bring plants indoors as well. Even though you may be opening the windows more, indoor plants can filter and purify indoor air. Efficient air cleaning is accomplished with at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space.

Proper disposal Spring cleaning is another tradition for many families come the end of winter and dawn of spring. Many people use spring as a time to go through closets and garages to remove items they no longer use or need. In an effort to clean up fast, some people may dispose of chemical products, paints, treated lumber, and many other items in ways that can be damaging to the environment. Always learn local municipal guidelines for proper disposal of potentially harmful products. Area recycling centers may have drop-off areas for stains and paints, used motor oil and other potentially harmful products. Before discarding something, see if it can be donated or sold. This will result in fewer items ending up in landfills. Exercise caution outdoors as well. Runoff from cleaning products used on home siding or driveways can leach

Choosing the hardware finish that’s right for you Whether your kitchen makeover consists of ripping everything out and starting from scratch or freshening things up with a few tweaks, one of the trickiest decisions can be the hardware. Should you go with brushed nickel or oil-rubbed bronze? Chrome or the stainless steel? What about classics like black or white? Let’s not even get started on the range of different glass finishes. How did something as simple as opening a cupboard or drawer become so complicated? Luckily, we have broken things down into Hardware 101. Here are some general hardware categories that can help you get started ... Hardware that suits a period home: If you’re renovating an older home and you want to maintain a style that’s true to the period, you want to avoid modern finishes and stick with the classics: porcelain, wood or oil-rubbed bronze. Many new knobs and pulls are created to suit the style of older homes, so you’ll be able to get something new without sacrificing authenticity. Hardware that makes

a statement: While the hardware is understated in many homes - almost part of the background - some homeowners like to surprise their guests with a gutsy choice. Colourful knobs from tinted or frosted glass, sea glass and patterned porcelain are sure to attract attention. Hardware that combines form and function: Did you know you can buy pulls and knobs made with an antimicrobial finish that actually inhibit the buildup and growth of harmful bacteria between cleanings? It’s just as magical as it sounds - a continuous antibacterial action that never wears or washes away.

Eagle Brand WOOD PELLETS

Hardware that stands up to sticky fingers: If you have little ones in the house, you’ll want to choose finishes that can take a beating and still look great. Brushed finishes, like brushed nickel and brushed oil-rubbed bronze, give off a subtle shine but don’t streak as easily as stainless steel. Hardware that adds warmth: If you find chrome and stainless steel too chilly or industrial for your tastes, consider a cozier bronze, rust, or rose tone for your hardware. You’ll get the aesthetic and function of metal but also the warmth of a snug older kitchen.
