02-385-130. Pg. 3. Caption: [top] People might have complained about long line-ups at the credit union, but until Sunday heat was never a problem. But Sunday, the day the North Shore Community Credit Union moved across the square to its new, 1,300 sq. ft. premises, John Hunan of Whistler (right) found himself in a chilly line-up behind Danny Meier and David Monteith (left) of North Vancouver. Actually, it's a bogus lone-up: the bureau shown, as well as an 8,500 fund safe and other banking equipment had to be moved by truck from the old location to the new. Carpenters and electricians worked nearly around the clock Sunday and Monday to be ready for business as usual Tuesday. They made deadline.

02-385-104. Pg. 19. Caption: Michele Bertholet is the head chef at Pika's (pronounced Peeka's), Whistler Mountain's new restaurant adjacent the Roundhouse. The facility, which is licensed to seat 400 persons, had its official opening Friday. The 8,300 sq. ft. restaurant, designed by architect Lee Bruch and engineer Jon Paine, cost about $600,000 to construct including more than $150,000 in kitchen equipment. Bertholet and his staff will now be able to provide freshly baked pastries, rolls and buns daily as well as hearty meals such as Baron of Beef and chili. As well, the new restaurant features a custom sandwich bar. Whistler Mountain Ski Corporation named the restaurant Pika's, a small rock rabbit commonly found through the high alpine regions of North America, after a contest that drew 300 entries. Whistler residents Ms. Lori Mitchell and Mr. Peter Pritt were the winners and will split the grand prize so that each will receive $100 as well as a $50 gift certificate from Dusty's Cantina. Coincidentally, the name also fits a former mountain resident of a slightly larger form: Jessica Hare. Jessica lived in Whistler Mountain's alpine residence for four of her five years and gained the nickname Pika.
