Cadets working to create local camp near Charlie Lake

first_imgActing co-chair of the of 2276 PPCLI Royal Canadian Army Cadets executive committee, local real estate agent Terry Isenbecker, believes he has found a permanent home for the cadets, and is seeking support to bring his dream of a permanent local home to fruition.Isenbecker has located a parcel of Crown Land on the shores of Charlie Lake that he believes would be a perfect location to build a camp for cadets, one that could also be used by other local community groups, such as North Peace Search and Rescue. With the assistance of Urban Systems, he has begun the process of applying to use and develop this parcel of land for the cadets, which has been dubbed Camp Charlie.Located on the eastern shore of Charlie Lake, near the Dressler Memorial Gun Range, the 4.5 acre parcel has year-round access via Sunnyside Drive, and although is currently covered in vegetation, is ideal for the Cadet Corps rural training. It includes a cliff-face down to the lake, which can be used to practice rappelling by groups such as North Peace Search and Rescue. Camp Charlie’s close proximity to Fort St. John means that the cadets will no longer have to drive over an hour to Camp Cameron, a journey which Isenbecker described as potentially hazardous in the winter months. In addition, there are emergency services in Fort St. John, a mere 10km away, should any of the groups which might wish to use it, need medical attention and is in the Charlie Lake Fire Protection Area.- Advertisement -The 2276 Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Royal Canadian Army Cadets (formerly known as the Rocky Mountain Ranger Cadets), has been helping local youth become better citizens since September 1946. The program is open to all girls and boys, aged 12 to 18 years. Currently there are 75 local youth enrolled, with a future goal of 100. The proposed Camp Charlie would have ample training and educational space for the cadets.Isenbecker is seeking community support for his proposal, in order to finalise and submit his application for a tenure lease of the property from the government. At the April 27 Regular Council meeting, Councillor Trevor Bolin recommended that Council write a letter supporting Isenbecker’s application for a tenure lease on the proposed Camp Charlie land.Below is a copy of the application provided to Fort St. John City Council.Advertisementlast_img read more

Gallegly under fire to explain condition

Tenenbaum said Gallegly has an obligation to reveal his medical condition to constituents. “To the extent he has a health concern, I extend my sympathy,” Tenenbaum said. But, he said, “It’s absolutely essential for the public to know whether the person on the ballot has the capacity to serve, and not just to take his word for that.” Gallegly on Thursday released a two-paragraph letter from Capitol attending physician John Eisold declaring him to be in “good health” after a recent evaluation. “There is no limitation on your activities,” Eisold wrote to Gallegly. “I encourage you to continue a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen.” Bruce Weinstein, the professional ethicist known as the Ethics Guy, said congressmen have a limited right to health privacy. That, he said, “is for a good, moral reason. So the voters can decide whether this person will be able to promote their interests.” Boston University bioethics professor George J. Annas said the question of whether Gallegly should be more forthcoming is more of a political issue than an ethical one. “It really is up to the public whether they’re satisfied with his explanations,” he said. Gallegly has said that in bowing out of the race, he was acting out of caution because he did not have full information about a medical issue and felt it would be unfair to constituents to leave mid-year should the health concern indeed crop up. By Wednesday, he said, he was reassured that he is in fact fit to serve. “If you take him at his word, then you wonder about his judgment,” Weinstein said. “Would he be wiling to pass a bill without all the facts too?” Lisa Friedman, (202) 662-8731 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – After drawing attention to his health by first trying to bow out of upcoming congressional elections and then jumping back in to the race, Rep. Elton Gallegly should explain his medical condition to voters, the chairwoman of the Ventura County Republican Party said Thursday. Gallegly, 62, R-Thousand Oaks, initially cited an unspecified medical problem when he tried to step out of the 2006 congressional race last week. But after intense pressure from GOP leaders and President Bush, he declared Wednesday that the health issues have now been fully resolved and he will, in fact, campaign for re-election and serve a full term if elected. In calling for full health disclosure, Chairwoman Leslie Conejo joined a growing chorus of ethicists and political analysts who said Gallegly’s most recent announcement raises more questions than it answers. “He has a right to keep his health private. However, politically, it would be better to disclose his medical situation,” Conejo said. “It’s left so much doubt out there. People want to know why it prompted him to pull out. People just want to understand.” last_img read more
