Johnson, who will be
presenting a one-evening
workshop on learning disabilities on March 14 at
the Helen Dixon Centre,
has worked with people
with learning disabilities
since 1991, and says that
once a person has been
diagnosed with a learning
disability, they are usually
able to take steps to, if
not cure it, at least to deal
with it. '
"We had one lady
who had a very, very high
IQ, but who had a disability with
written
language," Johnson said.
"She could participate
fully in class, but she
couldn't write it down.
She thought she was
crazy. It was a real relief
for her to find out exactly
what the problem was."
Johnson said the reasons for learning disabilities can often be neurological, and thus immune to
medical treatment.
"Most of the problems are with written
language, people who
can't read, write or spell,"
she said. "The basic message is that these people
are intelligent, but they
need to be taught in a different way. It is thought

used in order to make
those connections."
She noted that dyslexia makes upabout 80 per
cent of the learning disabilities she sees, with
most of the rest taken up
with mathematical disabi-
lities and a few unusual
cases.: •
However, although
they are immune to medical intervention, that
does not mean the problems cannot be overcome.
"The remediation is

said. "You can't do anything about your neurology, so you have to work
around it. It's like a wall

is to determine if it is low

inherited fa^
Over the next decade,
many baby-boomers may
be faced with the situation of inheriting their
parent's principal residence. Hopefully, their
parents have done the
proper estate planning to
ensure the maximum
value of the inherited
property gets passed
down to their heirs. Estate planning can be complex, tax and legal professionals should be consulted.
When the property is
inherited, the important
question that needs to be
addressed is what to do
with the proceeds from
the sale of the property.
There are many different
options that are available
to you depending upon
your needs.
*
Some people may not
sell the property at all,
and may choose to become a landlord and rent
out the property. If the
most convenient choice is
to sell the property, some
may want to spend some
of it on a cottage, take the
family on a nice vacation,
or renovate their home.
Others would prefer to invest the proceeds to create
an income stream, or supplement their RRSP,
and/or eliminate their

One should be

decision.
From an investment
perspective, one must
identify their appropriate
asset allocation based on
their tolerance for risk
and needs for income,
growth, and/or capital
preservation when investing a large lump sum of
money. When trying to
generate income from a
portfolio, there are many
investments that will pro-
vide a consistent monthly,
quarterly, semi-annual, or
annual income stream in
both guaranteed and nonguaranteed securities.
When selecting investments that provide a
consistent income stream,
make sure to compare interest income yields and
dividend yields on an
after-tax basis since dividend income is taxed
more favourably. Currently, investment income

ANNIE GALIANT
Observer Reporter
Hearken back to the days of the gold rush when
men and women sacrificed everything in the quest for
riches. Remember the poor souls who never found the
mother lode and revel in the ones who did.
The Quesnel Royal Canadian Legion will celebrate
those days in their Klondike Days dinner and show.
The prime character honoured during these celebrations isj of course, Robert Service who brought the
stories of the miners to life in his poems and stories.
"We felt Robert Service should be recognized and
eight years ago pari Hall organized the first Robert Service night here in Quesnel," said one of this year's organizers Edna Mackie.
As it turned out that was the only Klondike celebration focusing on Robert Service in the province.
Robert Service, who was born in England on January 16, 1874, spent 14 years in Whitehorse and Pawson City as a bank teller during the Klondike gold
rush.
Service died on September 11, 1958.
One of the best loved poems by this bard was the
Cremation of Sam McGee which chronicled the life of
one miner who left the southern states to find his fortune in the Klondike only to meet with hardship and an
inhospitable climate that made his life miserable.
When he finally died his friend was trying to get
him home for burial, but that task became too difficult
and he decided to burn the body in an abandoned ship
on a frozen lake.
Sam McGee seemed to finally be happy with his lot
and kindly asked his friend to shut the door on the fur-

nace as he was letting in the cold.
This poem is just one of many Service wrote about
the difficulties and disappointments endured by the
hearty men and women he met while working in the
north.
The Legion has kept this Robert Service/Klondike
Days event going and this year they have a fun-filled
event planned.
On Saturday night, March 2, 2002 the doors in the
Legion hall open at 6 p.m. for cocktails and the dinner,
featuring traditional Klondike fare such as Klondike
baked beans, roast beef, gravy, mashed potatoes and
sourdough bread and dessert which is a well-kept secret, will begin at 7 p.m. and an hilarious show after
that;
A dance, included in the price of the ticket will follow in the Legion lounge.
For those planning to come to Klondike Days in
costume, several door prizes will be awarded for the
best Klondike outfits.
The'show will feature Robert Service skits and recitations as well as songs and the barbershop singers.
Tickets are $15 each and available at the Legion
office.

The RCMP in Quesnel along with many other detachments in
B.C. communities have a well established school liaison
program. Schools in the Quesnel school district have police
officers assigned to them. These police officers attend to their
school, get to know the principal, teachers, and students. If a
teacher would like a police officer to do a presentation on a
certain subject the teacher would contact the liaison officer. A
date is set and the officer attends to the school to talk to the
class. Officers can give presentations on many subjects. Topics
can include bike safety, personal safety, career information what it's like to be a police officer, as well as the history of the
RCMP, just to mention a few. With having the same police officer
assigned to the school for a year, or more, the students get to know the officer as more
than someone who issues speeding tickets and arrests bad guys.

Michek
says
the
knowledge she gained was
invaluable.
"It was really a lot of
work experience," said
Michek. "We got lectures
on
the
animation
industry, they went over
background design and
character design, and then
we started doing some
animating."
The animation started
out very basic, drawing a
bouncing ball, and moved
on to progressively more
difficult
exercises,
culminating with a person
jumping on to a box.
Michek
says
the
actual animating took
awhile to get comfortable
with.
"I've been drawing
and painting all my life,"
said Michek. "But I
haven't done that much
animation. I did some
when I was younger, but
I hadn't done any in a
long time, so it took a_
little getting used to."
Besides reinforcing
the fundamentals of
animation, Michek was
able to familiarize herself
with some sophisticated
animation technology.
"We got a tutorial on
3-D
software," said
Michek. "We were using
a
program
called
Softimage, which is pretty
cutting edge stuff."
Michek
says
attending the course has
bolstered her desire to
pursue a career in
animation.
"I want to be an
animator," said Michek.
"The course definitely
helped to reinforce that
jhis is what I want to
pursue. It was inspiring."
A number of persons in B.C. continue to choose to drink and drive. 96 persons were
investigated in the Quesnel area in 2001 for drinking and driving offences. Five people
were killed in alcohol related accidents in the Quesnelarea in 2001. Convictions for an
alcohol related charge can result in a $600.00 fine for a first offence, 1 4 days in jail for a
second conviction, 90 days in jail for a third conviction, and so on. Jail time can
significantly increase if a drinking driver is involved in an accident where injuries occur
A conviction will also result in a mandatory one year driving prohibition. ICBC will also
assess 10 points against a persons licence if convicted for an alcohol related offence.
These 10 points carry with them a fine of $905.00. Incidents of impaired driving could
all but be eliminated if all drivers decided to take the utmost responsibility for their
actions and chose not to drink and drive. Having a designated driver or taking a taxi
home are much better choices theni getting behind the wheel while under the influence
of alcohol. It's time that everyone did their part to make the streets and highways safer
for all motorists.

Many phone calls are received at the RCfVIP detachment and at the CPAC office from
people who are interested in joining the RCMP. The first step that a person has to take is to
attend to an information session. These sessions are held regionally in the province. To find
out more on session dates a person can call the recruiting number at 604-264-2580, or go
to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police website.
Q u e s n e l officer b u s y b o t h o n a n d off duty
Corporal (Cpl.) Bob Zimmerman heads up the four member Quesnel
highway patrol section. As the officer jn charge of the section Bob is
responsible for most of the administration that goes along with the daily
operations of the highway patrol section. When he can break away from
the papenwork Bob takes an active role in the enforcement of the many
traffic laws that help to keep the highways safe for all motorists. Bob is well
informed about the many traffic laws as he has been an RCMP officer for
29 years. Bob is also a member of the Que§nel Search and Rescue
Society. Bob is presently the president as well as the search manager for
Search and Rescue. His duties with the Search and Rescue Society take
CPL BOB ZIMMERMAN
up much of Bob's off-duty hours. Bob is also the director of the Quesnel
Snowmobile Club, as well as a director for the B.C. Snowmobile Federation. If all this was not
enough to keep him busy, Bob was in charge of traffic control at the Quesnel sites for the
recent B.C. Winter Games. Bob looked after traffic flow around the two arenas and at the
Hallis Lake cross country skiing area. Bob had previous experience in this area as he was the
Traffic Control chairperson when the Winter Games were held in Quesnel in 2000. Bob is a
valuable community member, both as an RCMP officer and an active volunteer.
The local crimestoppers continues to receive information on
an almost daily basis. Callers are phoning in with
information relating to mgny various crimes. These crimes
could include murders, drug related offences, break and
enters, thefts, assaults, vandalism, as well as others. Each
tip that is called in is investigated. If a callers information leads
to arrests, or convictions, or recovery of property, that caller
could be entitled to a cash reward. Rewards of up to
$2,000.00 are available. Callers do not have to give their
names. Student Crimestoppers is also available in Quesnel. Student Crimestoppers
functions like Crimestoppers. The difference being is that it is usually a student who calls
in with information, and quite often the offence being reported on has occurred or is
occurring Jn or around a school. Rewards are also available through Student
Crimestoppers. The number to call is the same for both - 992-TIPS (992-8477). If you
have any information on a crime then Crimestoppers wants to hear from you.
Q u e s n e l D e t a c h m e n t G e n e r a l Investigation S e c t i o n
Five RCMP officers make up the Quesnel General Investigation Section. These "plain
clothes" officers investigate the most serious crimes that occur in the Quesnel area, as
well as many drug related crimes. Uniformed police officers are usually the ones who
first arrive at a crime scene. If the crime is serious in nature officers from the General
Investigation section may assist or take over the investigation. These plain clothes
officers spend a great deal of time investigating serious crimes such as murders, sexual
assaults, robberies, frauds, break and enters, arsons, and other crimes which require
extra attention. Officers on the General Investigation section receive specialized training
in certain fields which enables them to conduct thorough investigations. General
Investigation sections are a valuable part of any detachment and are often instrumental
in solving crimes.

bragging, I just want to add credibility to my next
piece of advice. Old guys should have short hair.
There is nothing masculine or artistically whimsical
about straggly wisps of curly white hair framing a
wrinkle farm. Even if your hair is thick, you must keep
it short. Generally, your hair looks older than you are,
so letting it proportionately dominate your appearance
will make you seem even more ancient than you
deserve. When you're 18, maybe it looks good to see
long, unkempt hair as a sign that you're just starting
out. But at 60, you're not starting out, you're finishing
up. And presenting yourself as "struggling" at that age
does not enhance your overall image. So if you're an
older guy, get your hair cut as often as you can. If
you're cheap, get your wife to do it. Just make sure
she has her glasses on and she's in a good mood.

When the Golden
Girls Trefoil Guild met
for their quarterly informal meeting at the Country Haven Restaurant recently, they didn't just;
come to eat.
They came to talk
about some of their plans
for the upcoming season.
The Golden Girls are
women who have been or
are currently involved
with the Girl Guides of
Canada as a Brownie,
Guide, Pathfinder or Leader.
This year, the group
is planning to assist in
raising funds for renovations at Tyce Lal<t' Camp.
Besides discussing business, they also : hold
plant exchanges, listen to
guest speakers, watch
slide shows and enjoy informative presentations
by local girls who have attended

GEMINI (May 21-Jung 2Q) - If you want to make a long
and lasting good impression on those with whom you'l
have dealings, be both natural and sincere. When you
try too hard, you could come off as a phony.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Flattery for manipulation
sake as opposed to giving honest praise when and
where merited will be easily perceived by those you're
trying to get to do your bidding.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Your love for beautiful things
could overwhelm you if you're not careful when out
shopping. If you are extravagant without care, it will
cost you in other areas where you do care.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Prejudging persons you
don't know too well could cause you to miss out on
developing a relationship with a very fine person. Give
everyone the benefit of the doubt.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - It's wonderful to want to be
a nice person, but taking on an assignment another
should handle for him or herself could cause you to be
used, and not appreciated.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - If you place no constramts
on your behavior , it will cause you to think that the
only thing that matters is your feelings, and no one
else's. It's not a Way to become popular.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Your peers will
grade you on performance, not personality. All the small
talk in the world won't make the good impression you'd
like to make. Do what's expected of you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Tan. 19) - If it becomes difficult
for you to distinguish between positive and wishful
thinking, sort it out by remembering which assures
success, and which invites disappointment.
