Diners will get a good view of the South Cariboo Regional Airport and runway from the Hanger Restaurant at the 108 Mile Ranch.

There is a new dining experience available at the 108 Mile Ranch.

The Hanger Restaurant located between the South Cariboo Regional Airport and the mailboxes, and offers a great view of the airport and runway while folks have their meals.

Folks may remember this building was the sales office for the Block Bros. staff who were selling lots for the 108 Mile Ranch. It had 24 phone lines for the sales staff and the phone line installer still lives in the 108.

Later, the building was used for Gunner Cycles, a cross-country skiing office, a grocery store operated by Eamon McArdle, and a fitness centre. Then it sat empty for several years.


Vandalism, injured horses

A horse that lives on the property between the Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship Church and the 108 Community Hall was a target of abuse by vandals recently.

Someone threw large rocks at the horse, and as a result, the animal sustained injuries to its back. It also appears that some of the fence and the top barbed wire were cut and some of the concrete wall suffered paint graffiti.

If anyone has any information on this event please report it to the RCMP at 250-395-2456 or the CCLF church office at 250-791-5532.


Lake trails

The 108 Greenbelt Commission has just completed another section of the low-mobility trail in the 108 Mile Ranch.

The new trail starts at the 108 Heritage Site and goes for another three kilometres to the West Beach. The large kiosk sign from Sepa Lake parking lot on Kallum Drive has been relocated to the 108 Heritage Site across from the rest area.

The trail map has been upgraded to show all of the trails. There is now a total of seven km of low-mobility trails.

Many thanks go to the construction crew, Robin Nadin for his site co-ordination and to the 108 Greenbelt Commission for their continued efforts in keeping the trails upgraded within the 108 MileRanch.

Meanwhile, there is a set of lost car keys located on the right post to the entrance of Sepa Lake archway.

Many thanks go out to the people who are using the mobility trails and are making an effort to keep them clean. The doggie bag system seems to be of great assistance.

It would be fantastic if a new information sign could be installed at the Sepa Lake parking lot, as this location appears to be the busiest area on the trail.


108 road concerns

108 residents are still concerned about the lack of traffic lines on our roads.

Some near misses have been reported because of traffic being on the wrong side of the road.

Highway 97 has received more traffic lines, where are ours?

Maybe the lines might be done by the end of the summer but then it’s winter season again and the lines will disappear. We are stuck in a cycle of disappearing road lines in the 108 Mile Ranch.
