But her journey has been
long, sometimes difficult,

all roads leading her back
to a home in the Cariboo.
In 1941 Canada was at
war.
Able-bodied men and
women were in the
military serving their
country, many with
families as well.
Jean's father, Gordon
Gibbons, was one of those
soldiers, leaving Jean's

in Marguerite (about
55 kilometres south of
Quesnel) where they spent
the summer.
"Wc took the train to
Ashcroft where we stayed
in a hotel, then boarded
the IT stage, which
was a touring car, to
Marguerite," Jean said.
She was the .second

everyone was happy to be
there.
"Wc could run and

veered away from her
family when she was
placed in a foster home in
Bouchie Lake at the age
of 14.
"They were good
people," she said.
"I took Grade 7 and 8 in
Bouchie Lake then back
to Helen Dixon for high
school."
And just past her 18th
birthday, Jean was back
in Vancouver taking
a telephone operators
course.
Jean returned to Quesnel
in 1951 where she
worked for the fledgling
telephone company.
"I had friends here and
I valued that

she said.

The family lived in
West Quesnel, however,
when Jean had the
chance to sw,ip her town

1963, she jumped at the
opportunity.
"We had cows, chickens,
horses, it was great for the
children," she said.
In 1972, Jean once again
found herself alone and
with the help of friends
and neighbours learned
to cope with the
challenges.
Jean finally found the

Jean and Del were

and for the next 36 years,
Jean enjoyed a wonderful
life.
"We enjoyed everything
we did together, golfing,
traveling and life in
general," she said.
After Del died in 2008,
Jean was looking to .start
the next chapter in her life
and she chose to do that
in Quesnel.
With children and
grandchildren here, as

had maintained contact

Train drivers John Howarth and Ibraitti Ashow
love a good line in books and live readings, as well
as on the tracks.
Howarth has helped organize two "poetry trains"
forVIARaiL
In 2003 a group o f poets traveled from Winnipeg
to Prince George with the train sold out.
The 2004 poets traveled from Prince George to
Prince Rupert.
In both cases, they gave readings as they traveled
west and i n small communities where they stopped
along the way.
Howarth was involved with the 1999 C B C Fred
Eaglesmith train as well.
"These were amazing trips," he said.
" A n d the passengers really enjoyed the experience.
I think the B . C , government is underestimating the
public's appreciation of literature when it slashes arts
funding."
Ashow agrees.
"John and I have the privilege of seeing a lot of
B . C . and Canada through our work. It's beautiful
country, but it's empty without stories, songs and
poems that originate throughout the land."
Ibraim was a student at B C I T who now works
as a conductor for the Hudson's Bay Railway in
Manitoba.
"I always read B . C . BookWorld," says Howarth.
"And I like to shop at stores like Books &
Company in Prince George. Instead of cutting
funding, though, the government ought to be
increasing its support for our home-grown
publishing industry, like it would the forest industry,
transportation or any other sector of our economy."

were mad, and we
were fired up," M i l l s '
captain Trever Hertz
said of the mind-set
of the team as they
headed to Prince
George for the last
game in the C N C
Challenge Cup series.
Following Friday
QbservefJieporter
The Quesnel
MiiUonaires lay claim
to the Colle|e of N e w
Caledonia Challenge
Cup Saturday thanks
to a six-gbai outburst
in the third period en
route to a 9 - 2 rout
of the host Prince
George Spruce
Kings.
The Millionaires
had not claimed the
Challenge Cup since
2003. •
Going into Saturday
night's game in Prince
George the Spruce
Kings held a 5 - 4 \
edge in games and
had a 3 6 - 3 2 goal
advantage.
To win the cup not
night's disappointing
game the message
to the players was
to keep the game
simple and to play
responsibly, Watson
said.
To their credit the
M i l l s focused and
followed the coach's
game plan, and took
a 3 - 2 lead going
into the third period.
The Millionaires
did not let up in the
third period, and their
effort finally paid off
when Hertz scored
just one minute into
the final frame.
The M i l l s then
extended their lead
to 7 - . 2 with three
power pliay goals
from Hertz and
Jpshua Desmarais
each scoring their
second goal of the
game and another by
Tyler French, his third
goal of the game.
French, who also an
assist on the night,
was given the game's
first star.
The last time French
scored was Nov. 11, a
span of 16 games.
"It wasn't
happening for me for
a while there," French
said.
"It felt pretty good, I
hadn't scored in quite
a while," a relieved
French said, glad to
put an end to the
scoring drought.
Spencer Graboski
added his eighth goal
of the season to push
the score to 8 - 2, and
Eliot Raibl rounded
out the scoring with
a power play goal,
his fifth point of the
period. ;
"It was weird, it just
seemed like whoever
I passed the puck
to put it in the net,"
Raibl said of the
accomplishment.
"It's the most
points I've ever had
in a game," a smiling
Raibl added.
Although the lopsided w i n gave the
M i l l s bragging rights
over the Spruce Kings,
the players stressed
the importance o^f the
win.
•
"We were pleased
to w i n the cup for
the fans," Hertz
said, "but the most
important thing was
the two points for the
win."
"Every game now
is like the playoffs,"
Raibl added.
"We need to hit
the playoffs on a
high note, have more
games like Saturday
night and fewer like
Friday night."

SCORPIO: It's always smart
to follow good health habits
Your birthday: Wed., January 20,2010
n the year ahead, there is a good chance that you could
undergo some unsolicited reorganization in several areas
of yoiir life. These revisions can be either constructive or
destructive, depending on how well you handle change.
AQUARIU>S(Jan.20-Fcl>. 19) - It> good to believe in
yourself, but don't be so locked into your ideas that you
turn a deaf ear to some constructive suggestions made
jy an associate who has your best interests in mind.
Pi?;r:FS rPeb. ^O-iytarch 20) - A commercial situation
could become sketchy if you lose sight of your high
standards and make a wrong evaluation of an expensive
investment. Wait until another day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) - No sense getting angiy
or becoming impatient about those things over which
you have no control. The best thing to do is ride the tide
until it eventually quiets down,
T A U R U S (April 2ft-May 20) - You'll be sorry if
you depend on others to do things that you're capable
of doing yourself. They are likely to bungle the job
altogether.
fiKMINI (May 21 -June 20) - If you're suuggling to get
along with people with whom you usually have a good
rapport, be tolerant of their behavior and shortcomings
at this time.
C A N C E R (,Tuin; 21-.Tuly 22) - Although things might
start smoothly, this pleasant atmosphere isn't likely to
last. Be prepared tQ exert a second or even third effort
just when you're getting tired.
. E O ^Juiy ^3->ViiB.
~ Some companions or
associates with limited foresight might attempt to sway
you to their way of thinking. Don't go along because it
will produce trouble down the line.
V l R f l O f Aug. ?3.Sept. 12\ -- A neighbor or friend who
is always running out Qf this, that and the other thing
might try to bonow something you consider a pri/xid
possession. Accidents happen so it's wi.ser ju.sl to .say
no.
L I B R A rSppt, 23.Qct. 73)
Then: arc always times
when people do things against their better judgment, so
do all that you can to avoid this trap. The cost of making
a mistake is likely to be far greater than anticipated.
S C O R P I O (Oct. 24-Nnv. 22\ - It's always smart to
follow good health habits, but unless you make it a point
to do so, you're likely to disregard your diligence and
suffer some ill effects as a result.
SAfilTTARMJS (Nov. 23-Dff. 21) - Be careful not
to become part of a rift that could develop among your
friends. Don't let anyone pressure you into having to
choose sides.
C A P R I C O R N (Dec. 22-Inn. \<t\ - Just because you
arc an energetic starter doesn't mean that you won't
become n poor finisher, If you mn out of steam early,
you might make a regrettable mistake on an unfinished
project.

Big save

W i t h this week's 5 1 w i n over White the

Even missing

and ran with it as

The battle between
Black and Green was
much closer than the

as the tenacious Black
crew frustrated the
Green snipers with
their relentless stick
work.
Leading his
teammates back
to a .500 record
was " B I G " Bob
Merta who scored
his first goal in 19
games which is
inconceivable for a
player whose wrist
shot wind-up starts
at city hall and ends
somewhere in the
middle of the Quesnel
River.
Also having a

the winner and added
two assists.
