By Matthew Bains DAWSON CREEK – Businesses continue to see opportunity in Dawson Creek as more proposed projects are moving ahead after city council approved further development permits on Aug. 30. Developers based in the Lower Mainland are proposing to build a 98-unit hotel on the property they own along Highway 2, across from the WalMart. “The occupancy rates are very high in Dawson Creek,” said construction manager Dave Jonash. “We’re putting out a bit of a different product and we’re confident it will meet a need there in Dawson Creek.” Jonash was referring to the fact the hotel will not be a single building, but rather multiple, standalone buildings of either four or six units each. “It will be like a small village,” he said. “They will be staggered in an arrangement that we think will look appealing.” He said the units will be larger than a typical hotel room, with a lot of flexibility for occupants. He added each unit will have its own oversized garage to accommodate large vehicles. “We see a need with the people who are driving big trucks for work, or people who have a trailer that they want to secure – they’ll be able to put it in the garage and lock it up.” Jonash said the developers also own the property adjacent to the site, and there has been some discussion of future development, although it’s too early to say for certain. He said including land value, the project has an approximate value of $20 million. Edmonton-based Rosenau Transport plans to build a 10,400-square-foot shop to accommodate truck storage and docks. Area manager Kelly Cameron said the new shop is a reaction to the growth

they’ve already seen in the area – and the future potential. “We’re actually on a rapid expansion plan right now into northern British Columbia,” he said. “We just built a new, $3 million facility in Fort St. John and the Dawson Creek facility will be a sister facility to that one.” He said that’s on top of a facility in Fort Nelson and daily runs into Chetwynd. He said his company sees a vacuum of service they hope to fill. “Certainly the energy sector is an important part of our Contributed photo customer base, but we also A proposed 98-unit hotel would consist of multiple buildings with service a number of commerfour to six units each, each with its own secure garage. cial and industrial vendors in build a 4,000 square-foot shop and office at 99 Avthe Peace Region.” Cameron said they’re probably looking at four to enue and 17 Street.

An investigation led police to execute a search warrant at a rural residence on the 245 Road. They reportedly located 37 marijuana plants cultivating in a bunker constructed from a Sea-Can, a large container used for shipping, located underneath a large shop on the property. Police also reportedly seized approximately $30,000 worth of marijuana bud, as well as several firearms on the property. A 35 year-old male and 30 year-old fe-

male from Dawson Creek were arrested and they face numerous charges related to production of marijuana, possession for the purposes of trafficking, possession of stolen property and several firearms related offences. The couple were released from police custody on strict bail conditions and will appear in court on Sept. 21.

By Melanie Robinson NORTHEAST – Whether living in a city or not, residents throughout the Northeast, and throughout the province, are being warned that bears are hungry and are on a hunt for food. As the animals prepare for hibernation during winter months, they are hunting and eating food upwards of 23 hours a day, said Kendra Wiberg, the provincial bear aware co-ordinator with the BC Conservation Foundation. With the cool temperatures of the fall resulting in the end of berry season, bears are turning to items like garbage, fruit trees and pet food, among others, to fill their needs. “There aren’t really any entirely unique communities in the sense that provincially what we see is that garbage is the number one attractant and so, first and foremost, we always ask that people secure their garbage,” she said. “That could mean different things for different people.” She went on to add that putting garbage in garages is the best choice, or securing the waste in a bear resistant bin, but that’s not always an option for residents. The trend now has turned to residents freezing food items that would put out an odour before garbage day to ensure that when its’ put on the curb, no scent is released. Contributed photo Having scents like that from garbage can lead bears into The BC Conservation Foundation warns residents to take the outskirts of a city, and as it moves in, it can be attracted the right steps to becoming bear aware, which in turn preto even more potential food by what Wiberg called wildlife vents the animals from becoming a danger to the public. corridors bear attractants. “Sometimes it can lead a bear right into the heart of a mu- he can become actually quite a danger to public safety.” The goal, however, is to encourage people from never getnicipality and that’s why you get bears, deer and coyotes right in downtown cores and it’s those areas that are often the ting to that point. “If we manage ourselves and fix the human problems, then worse because no one has their attractants stowed away,” she said. “They think ‘I’ll never see a bear,’ and then you see a the conservation officers never have to worry about the bear bear in a downtown core and he’s quite happily forging and problem,” she said. In fact, residents with fruit trees on their property are told they should be removing the food from the trees to avoid it becoming an attractant. Hunters and campers are also encouraged to be more bear aware as the busy season for the animals approaches, by ensuring camp sites are kept tidy and free from odours, or bears will be lured to the area. Residents who have bear sightings are encouraged to call Bear Aware, which uses the information collected to keep track of how bears are moving in the province, by calling 1-877-952-7277.

Community programs to continue after gaming grants received By Matthew Bains PEACE REGION – The provincial government announced on Aug. 27 the gaming grant recipients in the category of human and social services and public safety for 2010/11. Seven agencies in Dawson Creek will receive a total of $166,550. One of them is the Step Up ‘N’ Ride Society, which will receive $41,250. “We’re just very thankful we received the full amount of funding,” said supervisor Mona McNalley, who said earlier this year the program wouldn’t be able to continue without the funding. She said despite some of the negative attention the government has received for cutting some gaming grants, they worked with the Society to make sure it had funding while their application was being reviewed. “We went to the government and said we were in a financial hardship and they sent us a block of money to use until we knew the answer,” she said. “They were good to work with.” McNalley said the funding will cover the operational costs of providing the transportation service to seniors and the disabled in the community. She said they provide roughly 2,700 rides a month, though that includes repeat users. She said now that gaming grant funding is applied for on an annual basis, it does leave some uncertainty for the future. “We’ll be sitting on pins and needles at this time next year, because we don’t have extensive funding to draw from,” she said. However, she said the continued support of the City of Dawson Creek and the community is extremely important when applying for the grant funding. Kim Hughes-Brinsky, executive director of the South Peace Child Development Centre said the $50,000 grant they received is a relief. “Traditionally, we’ve known by March 31 where we are at, so we actually had spent some of the money before we knew we had it,” she said. The majority of the funding goes to support their aquatic physiotherapy programs they offer to children from infants to school-aged through a small, hydrotherapy pool at the centre. Hughes-Brinsky said it also helps support the Kiwanis Lend-

ing Library. “We lend out to families on everything from a specific diagnosis, right through to parenting, great activities for kids, books on different behaviours and ways to support parents,” she said. She added they also have a fund to help families advocate on behalf of specific issues their children are facing. She said on an annual basis, they serve about 350 families. Twelve organizations in Fort St. John will receive a total of just under $200,000. Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Fort St. John will receive $27,000. Executive director Danielle Armstrong said they were concerned earlier this year because they were told they would receive an undetermined, prorated amount. “When we saw the announcement we were super thrilled.” However, she said the next 18 months will be challenging for her organization, and others, because they won’t be eligible for the next installment of gaming grants until February of 2012. The money will go directly to cover operating costs such as rent and wages for the employees that help find volunteer mentors, screen them and match them with youth. Armstrong said in 2009, they matched 70 children with volunteer mentors, the most ever for the organization. She said they have been more proactive in raising awareness in the community about their services and it seems to have worked. “There’s over 100 Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in the country, and we saw the highest percentage of growth, or increase in matches, in 2009 over anyone else in the country.” Emily Goodman, executive director of the Fort St. John Woman’s Resource Society, said they are thankful their $20,000 in grant funding has been maintained from previous years. “It’s a huge relief, we’re very grateful,” said Goodman. “It’s also recognition of the value of the work we do.” She said the funds help the Society run a drop-in centre and outreach store at 10051 100 Avenue. She said the drop-in centre is open during regular business hours and offers crisis support, advocacy and referrals. She said the poverty outreach store serves an average of 200 women a month and offers free, personal and essential items such as basic household neccessities, hygiene products, non-perishable food, clothing, baby needs and more.

Driver Dustin Wright will be able to continue to provide rides to seniors and persons with disabilities in Dawson Creek after the Step Up ‘N’ Ride Society received their provincial gaming grant funding. “We assist lots of single mothers, street women, women leaving abuse and immigrant women,” she said. Goodman said this year, to-date, they’ve helped nearly 3,000 clients. “A lot of our programming is geared towards woman in need, but in general we’re here to serve and respond to our community of women at large,” she said. In August, some more gaming grant funding in the category of sports for youth and people with disabilities were announced, and clubs and associations in the Northeast received a total of $51,600. It was announced on Sept. 3 the Hudson’s Hope Historical Society will receive a $12,500 gaming grant in the category of arts and culture.

EDITORIAL

Why hello fall, welcome to Northern BC. September has arrived in the Peace and has brought with it the cooler temperatures. September signifies a new beginning in the area with the kids returning back to school and many community organizations returning to their schedules and ramping up for the season ahead. With that in mind, maybe September is the new January. Many of us took our holidays over the summer months and are now gearing up to hunker down and work, work, work. This season looks like it may already be a busy one for us, especially here in Fort St. John. One just has to look through any newspaper or community magazine to see that the Arts Community will be all over this town with theatre productions such as Stage North’s production of Chicago the Musical or the upcoming Spotlight 2010 , which will feature a variety of local musicians at the North Peace Cultural Centre on Sept. 17. But its just not the arts scene that is prepping for a busy season. There are a number of community organizations that are planning their own celebrations. The Fort St. John Association for Community Living is celebrating their fiftieth birthday in October and the Fort St. John Child Development Centre will be re-opening their facilities after their expansion with Project Build-a-Fort as well. We can’t forget that the sports community will also be celebrating as the Enerplex gets it grand opening on Oct. 13 with the official ribbon cutting and, to top off the evening, a fireworks display and F18’s flying over. Have a look at the many posters around town the next time your our walking, or pick up your newspaper or community magazine, because with everything that is planned so far, you don’t want to miss it!

MP Report

Shale gas: more prosperity for Northern BC and the planet Last week, I discussed how the positive performance in the mining sector meant a promising future for northern British Columbia. Allow me to further inflame your optimism by detailing what the exhilarating developments in the natural gas sector mean for our region … and our environment. Canada is already the third largest natural gas producer in the world (next to Russia and the United States). We currently produce 5.6 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) per year, 60 percent of which is exported. Creating a “buzz” and excitement in northern BC is the big “game changer” in the natural gas sector ...shale gas. Shale gas is natural gas trapped within shale rock and was previously challenging and prohibitively expensive to extract. However, with new technologies, such as horizontal drilling and more efficient “fracturing” of the rock, the ability to access shale gas cost-effectively continues

to improve significantly. It’s estimated ‘downside’ of development. That’s vithere are about 250 trillion cubic feet of tal for an area where it’s expected that upwards of 5,000 wells could be drilled natural gas in northern BC.

Essential to converting BC’s natural gas to clean energy in the Pacific Rim are two key projects: the LNG terminal at Kitimat and Pacific Trail’s KitimatSummit Lake pipeline loop, which will connect Spectra Energy’s Westcoast pipeline system to the Kitimat terminal. These transmission initiatives should be where the interests of natural gas producers, pipeline companies and environmental groups naturally converge. And, speaking of Spectra, once again they’ve demonstrated their historic commitment to our region when just last week their directors travelled from all over North America to hold their meetings in Fort Nelson. Shale gas and the LNG supply system, as a means to deliver clean energy, are not only key to our region’s economic future, they are vital to the future of our planet!

Consider renewable Our government spending is too much

Editor: Trying to comprehend the massive environmental devastation caused in a few brief moments by the recent Pemberton landslide is a mind boggling exercise to say the least. 

 Mother Nature awed us all with her display of destructive power, sending 40 million cubic metres of rock, sand, trees and debris crashing down Mount Meager, tearing away roads and bridges and blocking Meager Creek and the Lillooet River. Approximately 1,500 people were forced to flee their homes and another 2,500 were put on evacuation alert. It’s absolutely amazing that no one was killed or seriously injured by this natural disaster. For those who have followed the ongoing discussion about renewable clean energy in BC, the Pemberton slide provides an interesting point of comparison to the frequent, but completely misinformed, claim that renewable energy projects cause environmental devastation.

 Unlike Mother Nature, renewable energy projects are subject to strict environmental regulations with more than 50 approvals, permits, licenses and reviews needed from 14 government regulatory bodies before they can proceed. We certainly can’t control Mother Nature or the devastation she chooses to unleash. But we can control what we do and the careful, responsible approach we’ve adopted in order to secure the clean energy we need here in BC to ensure that any impacts renewable energy projects might have on the environment are minimal and fully mitigated.

 Mother Nature may not have to play by the rules, but renewable energy producers do. And despite the awesome environmental devastation that Mother Nature can cause, the care and scrutiny that goes into the development of renewable energy projects in this province is well worth the time and effort.

Editor: Recently, I came across a report about the largest infrastructure project presently undertaken in Europe, which I thought might be of interest, especially in our province of British Columbia. The city of Stuttgart opened its first railway station in 1850 and its present one in 1922. At the time it was laid out as a “dead end” railway station. This means that trains arriving at the station had to be pulled out from a locomotive waiting to be connected to the train from the back end to continue their journey. This took about an extra five minutes of time. Since Stuttgart is a major railway hub with 1,250 trains and 240,000 people passing through in 24 hours, the city aof Stuttgart, the province, the regional district and German Rail agreed to an entire new railway station after about 10 years of planning and overcoming of legal obstacles. The new station will encompass 10 acres and be build totally underground with the main objective to have a straight through passage of all trains. The project expenditure will be around 6 billion euro or about $8 billion. The project is part of the “Magistrale Europe” connecting five countries and 35 million people from Paris to Strassburg, Stuttgart, Munich, Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest with a 1,500 km high-speed electric train run at 250 kilometres per hour. The result will be that tens of thousands of people will be moved on these trains every day, save, quickly, comfortable, efficient and with a minimum impact on the environment for future generations. In comparison, how did we in BC spend $8 billion the last time? In a province of fewer than four million people and three times the size of Germany, our government did not find enough worthwhile infrastructure projects to spend this amount of money in a meaningful way. It seems like they are unaware of how many dilapidated gravel roads and snail rails we have outside of Vancouver, Victoria and the Lower Mainland, especially in areas where the government takes in billions of its revenue from natural resources like oil and gas, minerals and forestry. In their unfathomable wisdom, the government provided for the domestic and international elite a two week glitzy show to cater and dazzle to an audience eager for excitement

and spectacle at the Olympic Winter Games. Certainly we did get a few infrastructure projects out of it but, unfortunately in a very limited geographical area for a very limited, specific and narrow use, mainly to train future Olympic athletes. How much do the billions spend on this spectacle benefit the rest of BC in the past, now or in the future? I wish myself or anybody else would have a convincing argument in support of this question. Looking at our Canadian history of Olympic Games in Montreal in 1976 and Calgary in 1986, none of these cities could honestly claim that their future development was boosted as a result of the games. Mismanagement, cost overrun and a heavy debt burden have been a drain to the city of Montreal and its taxpayers for more than a generation. After the Olympic Games, Calgary had a phenomenal development only after the price of oil and gas started to move up dramatically at the beginning of the new millennium. I am afraid that our billions of investment in “excitement, spectacle and fun” will not generate much of any return for our province as a whole. With the economic downturn, a substantial legacy of debt and high taxes will be with us for generations to come. We can only hope that one day at least we would have politicians to look somewhere else for investment ideas, which carry us into a prosperous future since they are unable to come up with such ideas of their own.

Editor: We don’t realize how good we’ve got it here in British Columbia. While most of the developed and developing world is struggling to find affordable clean energy sources, here in British Columbia we have the great fortune to be able to cherry pick from a wide assortment of them. From waves and tides and winds along our coast, to water that’s endlessly flowing to the ocean from our rivers and streams, we’ve got so many renewable energy sources to choose from that we will never be able to use more than a

Looking at the difficult choices our American friends are currently considering, like switching to nuclear power in a big way, I have to ask why we aren’t doing more to share the clean energy resources we have in this province?

able clean energy resources here in British Columbia. It’s obvious that these clean energy resources could have an enormous impact on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We’ve definitely got it good here in British Columbia, and because of that, we should be stepping up to the plate and bringing our clean energy gifts to the table. In the end, we might even be helping to prevent nuclear waste from replacing greenhouse gases as the planet’s next environmental headache and that’s a double win in my books.

Grain elevators growing few and far between

File photo

The North Pine Farmers’ Institute is finishing up modernizing some of the equipment at the former Cargill grain elevator in Fort St. John. The group plans to open the elevator in September, with the hope that residents and farmers will make use of it as the popularity of such resources in the farming industry is disappearing.

By Melanie Robinson FORT ST. JOHN – After much work and negotiating, the North Pine Farmers’ Institute is ready to open a local grain elevator for the benefit of local farmers. The group, which has been in place in the region since the 1930s, is finishing the work, through the help of many groups and organizations in the region, to modernize the former Cargill elevator in Fort St. John, with a grand opening set for Sept. 16. The hope and intent, said Wade Cusack, vice president with the group, is to secure infrastructure so that agriculture can continue in the area. “The lack of opportunity follows for farmers if they have nowhere to ship their produce they can no longer be in business.We see the need to maintain the infrastructure here to support agriculture,” he said. “Agriculture is where our food comes from, for the

world. The importance of food is becoming headline news these days. People might not understand the importance of agriculture in Canada and around the world.” There are presently three elevators in the North Peace area, but they are not guarantees into the future. Cusack said one of the elevators is to be torn down this fall and the second has about a two year lifespan left, which would only leave their elevator in the area. Their goal with keeping the grain elevator in use is to keep things local and to revert back to the use of the rail system. “Because of the lack of infrastructure, the produce leaves the community by truck and we know how busy our roads are already,” he said. “Rail was the backbone of this country and it

is failing us, everything is on the highways.” The group acquired the facility for $800,000 and put about $800,000 of upgrades into it, with the hope that the grain elevator will be used well into the future. The group will be holding a series of community meetings throughout November to try and encourage farmers to use the facility and support the local initiative. Stay tuned to the Northeast News for more details.

Together we will find a solution.

Museum repairs begin, but more funding needed By Matthew Bains DAWSON CREEK – Foundation stabilization and upgrades to the Northern Alberta Railways Museum in Dawson Creek will go ahead, but not exactly as planned unless more funding can be secured. On Aug. 30, city council approved a bid from Hegge Construction to do the work, which involves leveling, reinforcing and other repairs to three sections of the building, as well as replacing the existing main entrance stairs and construction of a new accessible ramp to the tourist information centre. However, the bid came to just under $482,000, much more than the $300,000 budget for the project. Preliminary planning broke the project down into five parts, so council decided to defer some of the repairs until more funding becomes available. Specifically, they voted to defer repairs to the east section of

the building, which includes the natural history museum and Alaska Highway interpretive centre. Chief administrative officer Jim Chute explained the foundation stabilization work is the first of a three-phase project that also includes roof and internal renovations. “Not all of the first year’s work can be completed this year …it’ll be added to next year’s work and that means the phasing might actually be four years instead of three to get the building completely renovated,” he said.

Society looks to address housing needs in Fort Nelson

By Matthew Bains FORT NELSON – The Northern Rockies Seniors Society is looking to address a lack of housing options for seniors in Fort Nelson by proposing to build a new supported/assisted living facility. Cathy Dolan, president of the society, said the project is still in the preliminary stages of planning, but the concept is to build a facility with 20 individual living units, along with some common areas. She said the facility would combine assisted living – where residents would live independently, but with scheduled nursing care, meals and housekeeping provided to them – with supported living, a less involved level of care. Dolan said Fort Nelson has independent living units for seniors, including the six new affordable housing units expected to be complete next year, but there are only limited home support worker services available through Northern Health to those who need support or assistance. She said for those seniors, the only options are the hospital in Fort Nelson, or waiting for placement out of town. “Our society wants to keep our seniors in Fort Nelson,” she said. She said seniors, as well as some adults with disabilities, would each have their own suite, including their own bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette area. “Some of those suites might be one-bedroom, some of

them will be maybe two-bedroom and some of them may just be studio size,” she explained. Dolan said there would be a common dining/recreational area and plenty of space for daytime activities. There would be a commercial kitchen and they hope to be able to offer a Meals on Wheels program for seniors living outside of the facility. She added they would also like to open the recreational area to all seniors in the community. The society is working with the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality to transfer the land title to the society for the site of the project, to be located in the mid-town area, next to the school board office. “It’s a really good location,” said Dolan. “It’s close to amenities, it’s close to groceries, it’s close to the medical clinic and it’s close to the post office.” Dolan said they’ve worked closely with BC Housing on all stages of the planning and they are in negotiations to secure a mortgage through the Crown corporation. She said, ideally, they would like BC Housing to offer them low-cost, subsidized housing, but they haven’t received any commitment yet. “That’s a high priority for us, is to have it affordable to all seniors,” she said. She said Northern Health has voiced support for the project, but has not made any formal commitment for funding or assistance, but added they will continue to make the case to Staff with the CIBC branch in Dawson Creek held a barbeque fundraiser on Aug. 31, with proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, the largest single-day fundraising event for breast cancer research. Local businesses also generously donated over $500 worth of items for a raffle that will be drawn on Sept. 13.

the health authority about the need for the project in hopes of securing funding to cover operational costs and support services once the facility is built. Dolan said they are looking at $4.5 million to $5 million in capital costs for the project. “Some of that is going to be grant money, some of that will be fundraised dollars and some of that will be the mortgage,” she said. The group has already started holding smaller fundraisers, such as the First Annual Charity Golf Challenge they held back in June, which she said was a huge success. She added as they get closer to finalizing more details for the project, they will begin approaching businesses and the community about sponsorship opportunities. Dolan said even in the best-case scenario, the project wouldn’t be complete for a few years.

mer break. I am very happy to report that we have finalized a couple of projects at the adoption centre that have taken awhile to complete. We now have a glassed-in cat habitat area in the lobby of the adoption centre. This allows customers to view cats that are available for adoption without handling them. That is a good thing for us because it means there is less chance for disease to be spread throughout the shelter population. Once someone is seriously interested in adopting an individual cat, then they can enter the habitat and socialize with the animal. The other project we were working on was the completion of a post-isolation area – again for the cats. That is now done so we have an isolation area for sick cats, a post-isolation area for cats coming out of isolation and another area for adoptable cats.

Our other fundraiser will be our annual Halloween Dance. Plans are underway now for this event which will be held Oct. 30 at the Pomeroy Hotel. Stay tuned. It’s been awhile since I have done a column and we have had many animals come through our doors in the last few months. Pictured here is Taylor, a female German Shepherd mix who was found by Mile 28 with a broken hind leg. Sadly, the leg needed to be amputated but, happily, Taylor is recovering well and is available for adoption. She is very energetic, great with other dogs and would love a forever home in a family with children. Some of you may remember a recent article in the newspaper about another dog, Gracie, who also had to have her leg amputated. The vet felt that she had been caught in a leg hold trap and she was very emaciated when she arrived at the shelter. She has now recovered and is in foster care pending adoption. Thank you to all who helped out with donations toward the medical costs for Taylor and Gracie. Our medical budget is very limited and even with discounts from the vets, these procedures are very expensive. These are highly adoptable animals and will make very loving pets. Please consider one of them. My special thanks this month go out to Petron Communications for choosing us as their charity for their recent Pro-Am Golf Tournament. They raised over $3,500 on our behalf. Thanks so much to all of you. Please contact me at rkalb@spca.bc.ca if you have questions or for further information about our branch. Manager Peter Zazzi would like to inform patrons of the BC Liquor Stores branch in Dawson Creek, and of all branches across the province, they can help the Canadian Red Cross Pakistani Relief efforts by making a donation of $2 or $5 – or multiples thereof – at all store checkouts. Monsoon rains in early August caused extensive flooding across Pakistan, killing at least 1,500 people and affecting tens of millions more. Customers who require tax receipts should donate directly to the Canadian Red Cross.

Preventing memory loss Fort St. John 100 years ago through literacy is possible By Michele Mobley As we age, we have to keep both our bodies and our minds fit in order to live the longest, healthiest life possible. Many people believe there is nothing they can do to prevent the loss of mental skills as we age. However, taking part in new activities throughout our lifetimes not only keeps an aging body healthy, it keeps an aging brain healthy too. Memory, reason and imagination are parts of the brain, and by taking time to play games with friends or family, read newspapers, or trying new hobbies, we are using those parts of our brains and can reduce memory loss up to 50 per cent!

We have all heard the saying ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. By organizing photos of special memories into a scrapbook or by taking new pictures, we learn new skills and stimulate memory recall. As we age, there are a number of things we can do to reduce our risk or even prevent memory loss. Watching what we eat, staying physically fit and keeping our minds active benefits our families, our communities and ourselves! Michele Mobley is the community literacy co-ordinator in Dawson Creek and can be reached at (250) 719-6047 or at literacy.dc@gmail.com.

Christina’s Back September 8th Book now! Men’s Walk-in Barber Shop Hours Tue - Sat 10:00 - 6:00 p.m. Wed & Thur 10:00 - 8:30 p.m.

BC Hydro is upgrading the Fort Nelson Generating Station, 16 km south of Fort Nelson. The station’s power capacity will be increased by approximately 50 per cent. Beginning immediately and throughout the duration of the project, truck traffic to the site and in town is expected to increase. Please exercise caution on the roads. Your patience during this time is appreciated. If you are using the highway between the town and the Generating Station you may want to give yourself a little extra time to drive to your destination. As a general update, the Project is proceeding on schedule and BC Hydro expects to have the upgraded equipment operational by late November next year. For further information about the Fort Nelson Generating Station Upgrade Project, please call 250 561 4858, or email bob.gammer@bchydro.com.

Local musician assumes alias, travels world

By Angela Fehr

Pursuing a career as a professional musician was never not an option for Taylor-raised singer/songwriter Jody Peck. For the past three years, Peck has been writing, recording, touring and performing as Miss Quincy, Peck’s stage persona. Peck calls the Miss Quincy sound “grassroots gypsy blues,” inspired by the roots of North American music. When asked about the character of Miss Quincy, Peck says Miss Quincy was originally the title of a song, inspired by a vintage photograph. The song birthed the personality of a girl, carrying western strength and an innate confidence. Peck has always loved the idea of theatre and vaudeville and taking on the role of a larger-than-life character, so when she began performing as a solo artist, assuming Miss Quincy’s identity just seemed right and the character has developed from there. Miss Quincy has just finished four months of touring, promoting her album “Your Momma Don’t Like Me.” She toured as a solo act in the United Kingdom, following that with a cross-Canada tour as a duo, adding another artist to her ensemble, and then through western Canada as a trio. Changing up the dynamics of the band gives Miss Quincy opportunities to challenge herself, to play to the audience in different ways. “There’s definitely more of a challenge in playing as a solo artist,” Peck explains. “You need to be able to feel comfortable with your own skills and to be able to read the audience and deliver what they need. Every performance is different, every night.” Miss Quincy writes all her own songs and “Your Momma Don’t Like Me” has true Peace Country roots, having been written and recorded in a cabin on the banks of the Peace River. In addition to writing her own music and performing the vocals, Miss Quincy also plays guitar and harmonica, and her bluesy, earthy sound is reminiscent of the early ladies of the

blues, Betsy Smith, Memphis Minnie and Nina Simone. Miss Quincy is also inspired by the music of the old country music greats like Patsy Cline and Hank Williams. While Miss Quincy may look and sound like a performer from bygone days, her music is built on universal themes. “Some truths just span the ages.” Miss Quincy’s fall tour will have Peck logging the miles again, with tour dates in Ontario, Germany, the Netherlands and back in the United Kingdom, but Peck shows no hesitation to spend so much time away from home. “The only way you get good Jodie Ponto photos in this busi- Musician Jody Peck. ness is to put in the hours,” she says. Having a strong unified group in her band and tour crew also helps Peck approach tours without trepidation. And whether Miss Quincy reaches the stratosphere of fame and acclaim as a musician, Peck is certain that this is what she is meant to be doing. “I can’t imagine doing anything else,” she said. “It’s not even an option for me.”
