Corner-store taking shape

There is enough conjecture and


misinformation about a new
grocery store that it would fill
the empty space where the
store once stood.
Many conversations in town
begin with, Have you heard
anything? And end with, I
hope theres a new store before
the snow falls!
A few immediate food needs
are being met by local producers and retailers. You can buy
meats and breads, honey and
jam and produce at the Community Market every Friday.

Fields, Slenyah, Rexall, Ace


Hardware and Town Pantry are
bringing in some milk, eggs and
other food stuffs.
If there were plans for a new
grocery store, most people
aren't privy to the news. And
with the forecast of winter to
hit hard, it gives license to worry and speculation.
YET, there is movement on
one front and since action
speaks louder than words, the
person covered in gyproc dust
may likely be the one to put the
rumours to rest.

Although he has experienced a


series of delays and unforeseen
licensing issues, the new owner
of the FL Inn Hotel, Paul Dhaliwahl is the guy on a ladder with
a hammer in his hand.
On Friday August 26th, the
former drinking establishment
was thick with gyproc dust and
knee-deep in construction.
The 4500 square foot space
with ladders in the middle of
the room was stacked with
building material, white shelving and shrink-wrapped upright
freezers and upright coolers.

Along one wall are pieces waiting to be assembled by a builder


with a strong arm, a screwdriver and a good back.
I had to install another layer of
gyproc on the ceiling. Itll be
another week before its ready
for inspection. We want to
open in September, said the
guy who is rushing to complete
the corner store that looks like
it has space to supply the essentials for local shoppers.

There is nothing to do now but


wait and hope the first snow
doesn't come early.

Plans for BC Transit to connect northern communities is in the
discussion stage. There is an on-line survey seeking public input
and over 300 people have already replied.
The size of busses, where they make their stops and travel turn
around times will be determined from public input. The three
year$6 million project will see the capital costs covered in the
first year. The areas along Highway 16 have been broken into 3
segments, P.G.to Burns Lk, B.L. to Smithers, Smithers to Prince

Rupert. Each segment will receive a portion of the funding. Lit


kiosks with Wi-Fi and cameras will dot the route for safety.

Its the
BACK-TO SEASON
...Bring it on
An editorial by Elaine Storey
Its Back-To season that time when
birds flock, salmon spawn, new TV shows
air, teachers re-appear and kids begin their
ten-month-cycle of learning.
The term Back-To refers to coming back
to a place you were away from for a period of time. The inference is such that the
action was ongoing, it did not end but was
merely suspended while other activities or
events occurred.
To some, Back-To has a purely school reference. But one could argue that BackTo in August has a significant meaning to
all those in the general public.
Environmental shifts are realized during
the Back-To season. Summer is coming to
an end, harvest has occurred and the gathering has begun. The earth has produced
its bounty and has returned back to a state
of rest, the soil is spent. And so too are we
from relaxing, fishing, playing in the sun
and preparing huge bowls of potato salad.
Back-To on the home-front may signal the
end of summer vacation and time to return
from the cabin, time to wash the sleeping
bags and put away the shorts and t-shirts.
Advertisers showcase pre-teens uncharacteristically smiling in Back-To outfits
with new back packs slung on one shoulder. Somewhere in the background is a
school bus or a school hallway ...subliminal
reminders of who owns this season.
For stores selling school supplies, the
Back To end of summer sales are an important time to gauge the upcoming
Christmas season. Its a testing ground for
marketers to introduce marginal technological gizmos that appeal to the younger
age groups. Its proven that as much as 80%
of Back-To sales are being determined by

We had a power outage here tonight, I was washing and drying clothes and about to put a couple of zucchini loaves in the oven when things came
to a quiet stand still!...Amazing how noisy it is in the house when the power is on and all thing humming & carrying on. I decided to read a little
by one of my old coal oil lights....Squinting and holding the book up to the lamps chimney trying to read reminded me of the days when I was
going to school and having to do my homework by this kind of light....same lamp too! Really, it is a wonder my generation and the ones before
us didn't go blind!
Our best wishes to Marilyn Ray for a speedy recovery, all the best my friend!
Did you know that a "perfect marriage" is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other!
I have been busy as many of my friends are harvesting produce from the garden...finished the peas, pulled the plants out and fed them to the
chickens, same as the spinach, my freezer is sure filling up. About to get more beets in there today. Shall make some dilled carrots one day soon
too, it seems it never ends....the raspberries need to be picked...again too...never ends! Got a lot of beet pickles in jars, they are so good!
The cattle that I have pasturing here have certainly picked up since they came, I have never seen such thin cattle for the middle of July in my
life! Poor things!
My hay is all baled up now, better crop than I expected with all the dry weather earlier on. Two different neighbours put up different fields so
they both should have enough hay for their herds for the coming winter.
So far, as of Aug. 15 they are still able to log but if we don't get some rain very soon the bush will likely be shut down, seems if it isn't one thing it
is another!
Shannon Turnbull & Ashlee Malloy and daughter Paisley made a trip to Williams Lake Fall Fair to watch a friend, Riley Derose show his yearling
heifer. This is Riley's first year in 4-H and he is thrilled to bits with the heifer that he bought from us last fall. She will have her first calf in the
spring of 2017 and he will be well on his way to having his very own herd. Good luck Riley! 4-H is such a wonderful organization for the youth
of today, too bad there wasn't a club in this area.
I really like to have the wild animals around but one of the three deer that wintered in the hay shed last winter decided that this was HER yard
and the dog and I were to stay in the house! I am not really in agreement with that so we had a few arguments. My little dog Penny started
growling and carrying on one evening at the patio door and when I went to see what was going on here was this doe emptying a bird feeder of
sunflower seed. I opened the door a crack and yelled at her to get the heck out of there and she whirled around, came right up to the door and
started stomping her feet at me! Well! Seeing as it was getting late we just went to bed and the next morning after I had watered the green
house and was heading into the house, Penny took off around the corner of the house and in seconds was coming right back with the deer hot on
her heels! Penny thought it was a game at first and they went round and round the long flower bed until Penny realized it really wasn't a game
and ducked under the pick up. The deer wasn't sure where she went but was on one side of the pick up facing the house, I grabbed the broom
and distracted her long enough for Penny to get into the house! Then I realized her fawn was playing out on the lawn having a grand time, cute
little thing! That darn deer slept on the edge of the lawn for three afternoons, really thought she owned the place, I guess her fawn was asleep in
the trees just off the lawn. Fortunately my daughter and her family came for the weekend with a noisy bunch and I think the deer decided it wasn't safe anymore....I haven't seen her since! It is nice to be able to go outside without checking to see if I'll get chased back into the house again!
Saw a very strange sight on my way to Vanderhoof the other day, a large field that had been cut and baled back in June still had the hay bales
stacked in rows in the field and they had cut the second crop around the bales!....Must be a new experiment I guess! LOL
If you want a good recipe for cleaning and polishing your furniture try this: 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 cups water & 2 tblsp. olive oil, mix
well and get to work!
At the Vanderhoof Fall Fair both Rita Hiatt and her granddaughter did very well in the Light Horse events. Rita won most of the classes she
entered getting four first's and a second. Granddaughter Holly (Hiatt) placed in four out of five classes....even won some money! She is as proud
as can be!...Takes after her Grandma in horsemanship! Congratulations to you both!
Our congratulations to Shelley Carswell and Dale Perterson on their recent marriage. Hope you have many, many happy years together!
