Car catches fire

The Williams Lake Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire at Bee Jay Towing & Auto Wrecking Tuesday morning. The derelict vehicle was being prepared for crushing when it caught fire.

A male is facing several charges, including assaulting a police officer, after the RCMP tried to arrest him Saturday. On May 19, on Highway 97 just south of Williams Lake, two RCMP officers attempted to arrest an intoxicated male pedestrian who was staggering into traffic. Police say the male became combative with police and while being taken into custody the male uttered numerous threats toward the arresting officers. The male in currently in custody facing several charges including assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and uttering threats. He is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court today, May 22.

RCMP to develop domestic violence section Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer While most crime rates in Williams Lake are lower, in some cases considerably lower, than they were in 2008, domestic violence is on the rise. “We’re going to be a little more deliberate with our attempts to deal with domestic violence and are going to have one constable here in Williams Lake develop a domestic violence section,” said Insp. Warren Brown during a first quarter and RCMP annual performance plan report at Tuesday’s regular council meeting. “That person will liaise with other programs in an attempt to be more focused and pro-active with some things we can do. We are altering our victim services with a number of volunteers right now, the first time we’ve done that in a number of years,” Brown said. Coun. Laurie Walters pointed out that domestic violence is on the rise in the province and in North America. “It was interesting because we know it’s high here, but it’s also high in other communities,” Walters said.

Brown said he truly believes it’s also becoming more frequently reported than it was in the past. During the presentation, he showed graphs comparing crime rates between Jan. 1 and April 30 of the years from 2008 through 2012. In 2012 there were 10 auto crimes, compared to 85 in 2008. There were 25 break and enters of homes compared to 53 in 2008, four break and enters to businesses compared to 27 in 2008, 29 domestic violence incidents compared to 23 in 2008, 138 mischief crimes compared to 213, and three robberies with violence compared to nine in 2008. The number of calls for service was down as well — just under 2,500 compared to 3,500 in 2008. The calls for service have remained lower the last two years than they’ve ever been; however, Williams Lake is still in the top three for calls for service in the province. When it comes to break and enters of homes, Brown told council he’s concerned there have been 25 already. “As we speak, people from our general investigation unit are out arresting people and retrieving property stolen over the weekend,” Brown said.

He said most robberies are related to drug activities, so one of the priorities of the RCMP is to aggressively target known drug dealers. Priorities outlined for the next year include continuing to improve and enhance police and aboriginal relationships. “We have a high turnover of police officers here so we endeavour to have our police officers engage themselves in a host of activities in First Nations communities,” Brown explained. “For example, we had a few of our officers out in one of the communities last week for a sweat.” Based on the needs of aboriginal communities, the RCMP may also be invited to speak on education and awareness around issues of gang violence. Unfortunately, Brown said, the school liaison worker has been removed and transferred to the district marijuana team. To compensate, the city’s schools have been assigned to all four watches and each watch devotes time to the schools. When asked by Walters if the school liaison position is gone forever, Brown said it’s a matter of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

“With increased drug activity and the number of marijuana grow-ops, we’re the squeaky wheel in the Cariboo to get the team started two and a half years ago. We’re still committed to seeing that through and I’m not sure how long that will go on for, but I would suggest it will go forward until such time as we feel we’ve made a big difference.” By assigning the watches themselves with a greater role of liaising with the schools, Brown suggested it might mean that the RCMP are better represented in the schools. The RCMP continues to apply for grants through the National Crime Prevention Centre, and to develop its community policing programs, and engage youth. “We recently met with the junior council to pick the brains of the young people,” Brown said. Continuing to focus on safer communities, by engaging in “good, old-fashioned police work,” the RCMP also reaches out to prolific and chronic offenders to sincerely try and assist them and see if there’s something in the environment they can control.

NEWS Salvation Army hosts self-awareness workshop Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The Salvation Army’s support and drop-in co-ordinator says often women join self-help groups yet do not glean as much as they could because they don’t know themselves. To help with that dilemma, Lisa Ratz is hosting a Women’s SelfAwareness Workshop that begins on June 4. A precursor to selfhelp groups, the 90-minute sessions, held twice a week over seven weeks will involve exercises to help women figure out who they are. Whether it will be exposure to different types of arts, such as pencil sketching or abstract with oils, different types of music, or journalling. “There’s not a lot of handouts; it’s more about experiential learning,” Ratz explains. “To be able to explain yourself without the use of a title is almost impossible, and yet we are so much more

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo Salvation Army drop-in co-ordinator and support worker Lisa Ratz shows off the mannequin she’ll be using for an exercise at the self-awareness workshop she’s offering free to women, starting on June 4. than our title.” It’s about being passionate, innovative and creative. Those are the things she hopes women

can identify in themselves. “We want to bring out who they really are underneath all the titles.”

The workshops will be free and can accommodate up to eight women. Ratz has designed the program, based on simi-

lar work she’s delivered to women doing self-exploration in transition in Courtenay and Kelowna. “That was dealing with

present issues, whereas this group is specifically targeted to women who want to find out who they are at the core,” she says. While the workshops are open to women 18 and over, that’s negotiable. At a recent visit to a pregnancy outreach program, Ratz met younger women who are still in a position that they may benefit from the program. “The sooner we can start doing this the better. If a woman can find out who she is and what she wants out of life at 18 or 19, as opposed to when she’s in her mid 40s, then how much more would she grow through her lifetime?” One of the exercises in the program involves a mannequin and is called projection therapy. Participants will be asked to bring an outfit from home, dress the mannequin up, and using stuffing or lack of stuffing make it look like themselves. “A neck to knee pro-

jection of how they see themselves and then the group works together to make it look as realistic as possible,” Ratz adds. “The program will be a challenge, meaning people won’t be able to slough their way through it.” Additionally Ratz will offer Skills of Success targeted to women that want to make life changes. It covers communications, goal planning, budgeting, crisis management, and assertiveness, with the goal being to increase confidence and empowerment. She’s also presently running a men’s discussion group on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. It’s drop in and open with different topics. Ratz usually starts off the conversation with a topic, but if participants want to discuss something else, she says that’s perfectly fine. For more information on the programs call 250305-2492.

WL community policing continues to be successful Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake’s safer communities co-ordinator Dave Dickson said all the community policing programs continue to grow. During a presentation to council at its regular meeting Tuesday, Dickson said in excess of 100 businesses are now part of Business Watch and the numbers are steadily increasing. “We send out news tips to be aware and on the watch for people. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback on it. We continue to expand it, but we don’t want to overburden our businesses with daily or

weekly reading, so when we get a Business Watch message we want to ensure it’s the information they need.” He says there have been 21 Crime Stoppers tips in the first part of 2012. The Crime Stoppers program was recently audited by the provincial crime prevention board. Even though Dickson was a “little stressed” about it, the program received a glowing report. “We had not been audited before so it was something we want to make sure we’re getting done.” Restorative justice continues to be a great success, with 16 cases dealt with so far this

year. It’s anticipated that number will triple by the end of the year. “Circles of Strength continues to go along very carefully as we don’t want to overstep our skills. We’ll be training some of our new volunteers,” Dickson says. Last week social media expert Jesse Miller delivered workshops with parents and the community, the RCMP, and students at Columneetza secondary school. “It was based on a program called iSmart that looks at how social media is being used today, whether it’s through cyber bullying or sexting.” Whether people are

a parent or a grandparent or a young person, it affects everyone, he added. “I have a Facebook

account and if I could delete everything I’ve put on there I would, but it’s not that easy.” He can pull things off

or close his Facebook account, but everything remains on the Internet forever, he said. Mayor Kerry Cook

told Dickson she appreciates all the efforts of the local RCMP and the community safety programs.

Some offenders have had 80-plus convictions Continued From Page A1 “Most often they won’t take that help.” Compared to other jurisdictions, Williams Lake has a number of junior officers — nine out of 40. “A good portion of the local RCMP strategy is to focus on training those junior officers, whether it be teaching them how to capture intelligence through social media or

how to recruit human sources. “Just to give them the tools that make them more sophisticated,” Brown explained. When asked by Coun. Danica Hughes why the turnover is high amongst RCMP members in Williams Lake, Brown responded it is one of the busiest detachments with a high workload, challenging pace and exhausting. “It’s not a desirable

place to come to so we get cadets. Most cadets come and hone their skills and are then sought after by other areas in the province. “This is a very good place to come and cut your teeth and become a very skilled and honed police officer.” Coun. Geoff Bourdon asked about the percentage of crimes committed by repeat offenders compared to new offenders. He heard there are

around 40 people who are demanding half of the police efforts in the community. “There are some offenders who have had over 80 convictions,” Brown answered. “For instance I’m aware of an individual, proven offender who no longer lives in our community. That person, maybe back in around 2007, may have stolen upwards of 300 vehicles.”

Increased costs included in RCMP contract Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer While city council has approved the 2012 to 2032 municipal police unit agreement contract, Mayor Kerry Cook said council is concerned about its lack of control in knowing what the future costs are going to be. The net cost increase in salaries will be $6,240 in 2012, $6,336 in 2013, and $19,296 in 2014; or per member $206 in 2012, $264 in 2013 and $804 in 2014. In 2012-2013, the city

will cover property costs of $318,003, up from the original forecast of $234,432. The province will contribute $67,000 toward the increased accommodation costs in 2012. Coun. Danica Hughes expressed shock. “I support the salary raise, but I have so many questions around the huge increases in the square footage accommodation costs,” Hughes said. “In Williams Lake the average square-foot rate for commercial right now is $8 whereas

we’re looking at paying $200 per square foot. I think that’s way too expensive.” Echoing Hughes, Coun. Surinderpal Rathor described it as a “lifetime opportunity” after 20-plus years for the provincial government to have input on the future with policing costs. “For me this is too rich for municipalities, especially municipalities like ours. It is the single largest bill to pay, but look at the hike. How can we justify that increase on a year-to-

Closed Saturday, Sunday & Monday

year basis? It’s insane,” Rathor said. “I know I have no say. The deal is done. We do need the services, but I just don’t like it.” Mayor Kerry Cook pointed out there’s a lot more to the cost of accommodation above the square footage. “For instance there are different things that are added such as maintenance, capital costs, jails, a jail keeper, and everything. But I also think it emphasizes urgency in moving forward to see whether we should own the build-

ing,” Cook said, adding Williams Lake is one of 11 municipalities left in the province paying accommodation costs for a building the city doesn’t own. Coun. Geoff Bourdon cited the costs as an example of the political sensitivity of downloading from provincial governments. “I’m on side with what my colleagues are saying, but it’s a fight we need to take to the province. The greatest issue is the way the funding is disbursed,” Bourdon said.

B.C. municipalities are taking the direction From the Williams Mayor’s Lake is already Chair headKerry Cook ing. The meeting, attended by 86 mayors, ended with a call “for immediate discussion, beginning with the premier and cabinet, to examine the state of B.C. communities, and specifically, for a more efficient use of existing resources to better address the challenges facing residents.� Here in Williams Lake, we are leading the charge in requesting new, fairer funding formulae for infrastructure projects. We were able to have frank, honest discussion, with action items coming out after the twoday caucus. There was consensus on the need to be accountable and we recognize that there is only one taxpayer, so we need to find creative innovative ways to move forward. We heard the first quarter crime statistics at council meeting Tuesday night, and crime remains much lower than it was in 2008. This is very positive and encouraging news, but as always, there is work to do. Williams Lake continues to be the busiest detachment in the province. Insp. Warren Brown also presented the 2012-2013 Performance Plan, with focus on continued improvement of relationships with First Nations, youth safety, and community safety. Council thanked Insp. Brown and safer communities co-ordinator Dave Dickson and their staff and volunteers for all they do to keep our city safe. These RCMP members risk their lives day in and day out for us.

Our Viewpoint

Tuition protest a smokescreen With the winter semester fast approaching final exams, university students in Quebec continue to protest against proposed tuition hikes. Students at Quebec’s universities have taken job action, or study action, whatever you want to call it since February. During the ensuing weeks the protests have grown in size, hyperbole and unfortunately have lost much of the peaceful aspect of the demonstration with acts of vandalism. Unions and social groups have jumped on the bandwagon, adding their voices to the cacophony. Tuition hikes are the bane of any university student.  I know, I’ve paid more than my fair share of tuition. So I can understand the reaction to the proposed tuition hike in Quebec which will see a year’s worth of classes go from just over $2,000 to just over $4,000 over the next five to seven years. That’s a hefty hike. I wouldn’t be happy to see my hard earned beer money going into the government’s pockets. Nonetheless, when all is said and paid, university students in Quebec will still be paying less for a year’s

worth of learning than most students across Canada. Lost in much of the rhetoric is that a bachelor’s degree in Quebec only requires three years of study, not four like the rest of the country. This is because Quebec has the CEGEP program.  The two-year academic program in CEGEP covers what would be considered first-year university courses at most universities across the country. What doesn’t come up in any part of the debate surrounding tuition rates, is that tuition for CEGEP studies, in other words, a year’s worth of university courses, is free. Yep, CEGEP does not have tuition fees. Consequently, a university degree in Quebec, really costs a student 75% of what it costs students elsewhere in the country. If I was a student in Quebec I would gladly pay my tuition fees and giggle all the way back to my piggy bank with my savings. If I was a student elsewhere in the country I would start doing the math and I would be organizing a protest for lower tuition fees. So, what is the fuss really about? Beats me. — Percy N.

had the privilege of speaking to a school group the other day, and a student asked me why I ran for public office. It’s a pretty standard question in a school setting, but every opportunity I get to answer it reminds me why I decided to enter politics. I ran because MLA I believe we are Musings living unBob Simpson sustainably. I’ve made no bones about holding that belief, which has prompted some people to call me a “glass-half-empty� kind of politician. I believe that the main reason we’re not adapting human needs and wants to the realities of a resourceconstrained planet is because our political and corporate structures are entirely focused on the present. The future isn’t taken into account when decisions are made, ensuring that the needs of today’s voters and shareholders take precedence over the rights of future generations. The most glaring example of this shortsighted approach to governing ourselves is the allocation of our natural resources. In general, politicians will always make decisions that keep the present generation of voters employed, even if it means the extinguishment of resources and the loss of employment for future generations. The collapse of the cod fishery in eastern Canada in the 1960s is a classic example of failing to plan for the future. This “tragedy of the commons� has occurred too often throughout human history. Unfortunately, I believe this scenario is playing itself out in B.C. with the new Special Committee on Timber Supply. The central focus of this committee is finding additional timber to keep the forest industry operating at its current capacity — a standard “present generation� approach to natural resource decision-making. Are the committee’s goals another “tragedy of the commons� in the making? I guess we’ll see on Aug. 15 when the committee submits its final report. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

More Viewpoints Williams Lake fights back Question of the week during Daffodil Month Editor:   Sincere thanks to the Williams Lake community which came out in force and joined the fight against cancer in April with the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Month. The people of Williams Lake were overwhelming in their support and generosity and made this year’s Daffodil Campaign a great success. Thanks to last month’s success, we will be able to continue funding the best cancer research and local support programs for people living with cancer. The society asked all Canadians to join the fight in April and wear the daffodil pin — a bright and hopeful symbol of support for those affected by cancer and a remembrance of those lost to the disease. On Daffodil Day, April 27, the society encouraged people to mark the day by do-

ing something special for someone living with cancer or to contribute in some way to fight against the disease. Another Canadian receives a cancer diagnosis every three minutes. Williams Lake joined the rest of the country in showing its support on April 27. Daffodil pins were everywhere, a great symbol that says no one goes through cancer alone and we are all in this fight to put a stop to cancer. Donations collected in April go toward vital support services including programs for individuals seeking cancer information, emotional support and camps for youth and families. The society also provides transportation services and lodge accommodations along with limited, short-term financial assistance for treatment-related transportation and

accommodation. Volunteers and staff deliver cancer support programs, cancer prevention information, advocate for healthier communities and fundraise for cancer research.   The Canadian Cancer Society fights cancer by doing everything it can to prevent cancer, save lives and support people living with cancer. Join the fight! Go to to find out how you can help. When you want to know more about cancer or support services, visit our website at or call our toll-free bilingual Cancer Information Service at 1-888 939-3333. On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, thank you for your continued support.  Cathy Briggs Coordinator for annual giving, Canadian Cancer Society, B.C. Yukon division/northern region

Mine opposition creates alternatives Editor: Re: the letter Mine opposition creates party confusion. The letter writer suggests that Charlie Wyse should propose some alternative project since he has come out in opposition to the Taseko mine plan. Wyse is correct in opposing it. The last review panel stated in its report (p. 65) that “the panel agrees with the observations made by Taseko and Environment Canada that Mine Development Plans 1 and 2 would result in greater longterm environmental risk than the preferred alternative.� Yet Taseko is

now proposing a mine plan based on option 2. The risk to the Taseko River system is too great. What Wyse does need to propose is that the province stop the mining of the forests of British Columbia. The government needs to assemble a credible inventory of the existing forest resources and to begin actively to address the reality of the thousands of hectares of NSR lands in the province. The province needs to seriously begin to manage the health of the forests that have sustained the B.C. economy for decades, and can continue to do so with some care and attention. The Williams Lake Forest District has

four foresters to deal with all of the issues in that vast area. Not so long ago there were 10, and that was inadequate. Other jurisdictions manage to retain a much larger team of managers. The forests of B.C. are a sacred entity which we are entrusted to look after for our children and grandchildren. They should not be forced to say at some time “they had a wonderful resource, varied and sustainable, and they blew it through shortsightedness and greed.� The mine opposition does not create confusion; it creates alternatives.

Governments need to operate on educated common sense Editor:   Socialism begets ultra conservatism. Like a bouncing ball, the populace of Greece has had a government giving into demands, to eventually be replaced by a government that will introduce severe cost cutting measures. There is no way that Greece can avoid the massive economic cutbacks and changes that are heading its way. Looking to Canada and B.C., what is necessary is a government where neither party has the power

to do things, as we have seen here in B.C., like the introduction of HST, or the sale of BC Rail without strong opposition and educated leadership. Federal NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, the potential next leader of Canada, blames the oil sands as being the primary cause of an increased value of the Loonie for causing the high number of manufacturing jobs heading south. For a leader of a party, a socialist party, where the oil sands production is today primarily financing Canada’s social safety net,

Mulcair’s position reflects a lack of knowledge of global affairs. North America is buying goods from China, China’s currency is pegged to the U.S. dollar, and China is hoarding those dollars to keep the value of China’s currency devalued, so that China can maintain a continued trade advantage. The process also devalues the U.S. dollar against world currencies including the Loonie. Oil sands not-with-standing, a weak U.S. dollar causes many Canadian-based American manufacturing companies to look back home for

a more economical manufacturing environment. Mr. Mulcair should be aware that the U.S. is further devaluing their currency by printing increasing amounts of their devalued dollar, to pay for a growing deficit, a deficit that has grown by $4.9 trillion in the three years since socialist-leaning Obama became president. The devaluation of the U.S. dollar is pushing the price of commodities, including oil, to record highs putting Canada in the enviable position of avoiding the

financial crunch of countries like Greece and even the U.S. In B.C. the NDP has taken a position against economic development, and job creation, such as the Enbridge pipeline and the New Prosperity mine. For the future of Canada and B.C., what is needed in both B.C. and Canada are governments that operate on educated common sense. With attitudes like Mulcair and Dix’s I am skeptical of the future.  Doug Wilson Williams Lake

“They call the Cariboo home” Cariboo evokes sense of peace for school superintendent Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer School District 27 superintendent Diane Wright and her family have called the Cariboo home for 35 years and have no plans to live elsewhere when she retires in August. Diane says she and her wildlife biologist husband, Randy, may do some travelling but their family and hearts are here in the Cariboo. “We both love the Cariboo,” Diane says. “When we are coming back from visits to Vancouver and get north of Clinton I just feel more at peace.” Diane grew up in Vancouver and attended John Oliver High School and then took the teacher training program at Simon Fraser University. She began her career in Williams Lake and during her first year teaching met Randy Wright. They married and moved to Lethbridge, Alta. for Randy to attend university. When he completed the program they were both offered jobs in Williams Lake and were very pleased to return to the beautiful Cariboo. Randy began his career as a government wildlife biologist and Diane returned to teaching. They had two daughters, Shalene and Tianna. Some years Diane taught part-time to spend time with her family as well as continue her own education. She completed her Bachelor degree and earned a Master of Arts in conflict analysis and management at Royal Rhodes University. Her graduate research was on inter-organizational problem solving, collaboration and coordination with applications to education. “Schools can’t do it alone. We have to do it with communities and families,” Diane says. For her masters project she did a case study of the social planning council in 100 Mile

The community had established a broad-based council with representation from RCMP, School District 27, and numerous community and government organizations working in mental health, social services, seniors, women and other groups. The council met regularly to assess community needs, share ideas and make proposals for grants that would benefit the community.  “It was fascinating,” Diane says. “I worked with them for two years and provided them with my report at the end. I had just started my job as district principal of support services and it really helped me to understand the community. The planning council also said the information I collected assisted them.” As a result of that research she was very pleased to support Communities That Care when it was established in Williams Lake four years ago. Almost from the beginning of her teaching career Diane has had an interest in alternate forms of education. She taught at Poplar Glade Elementary School, started the first special

education program at WLSS, taught at Skyline Alternate School, Chilcotin Road elementary and then began the Connect alternate education program. “I recently received an e-mail from a former Connect student who heard I was retiring and thanked me,” Diane says. “It was really nice to hear from her.” Diane also taught kindergarten to Grade 12 for two years at the Nenqayni Wellness Centre. The school staffing is funded by the Ministry of Education to ensure children’s education continues while the family participates in the wellness program. From there Diane became district principal for support services, a position she held for four years before moving to her current position as superintendent of schools for the past four years. “It’s time to focus on my family and the timing is right for the district,” Diane says of her decision to retire in August. “I am fortunate as I am leaving while I love my job.” She says the school board is in the process of developing a plan for the future and it is important to have a superintendent who can participate in the consultation process and be there after-



ward to implement the plan and see the whole process through. “The board has been just tremendous about going through all the reports and preparing for development of the plan.” Diane says she is amazed at the level of commitment to students and education by all staff in the district from carpenters and bus drivers through to custodians, clerical staff, teachers and principals. “I am really impressed with everyone in the district’s level of commitment to the students,” Diane says. “When I really talk to people about what they do, they do what they do for students. We’ve seen a steady improvement in the results for our students across the district.  “This hasn’t been an easy year with labour relations and I am so grateful we have maintained respectful working relationships. That has taken everybody working hard on all sides.” Diane credits having a bit of her father’s spirit when it comes to growing and learning and the aphorism he gave her to live by — carpe diem (seize the day). She plans to continue seizing the day right through retirement.

“I am looking forward to spending time with my granddaughter, planning a wedding (for Tianna) and seeing the world.” She says that as a biologist Randy has always wanted to visit Africa and they are looking forward to going on a safari and they will also take a trip to Scotland where they both have ancestral roots. Their daughter Tianna is engaged to Shawn Carl and they are planning to wed in the summer of 2013. Their daughter, Shalene, and her husband Aaron Ostrom, have a 19-month-old daughter Scarlett with whom she plans to spend more time. “I’m looking forward to being able to take Scarlett to StrongStart,” Diane says. “Her mom and dad take her and I would like to take her too as she really loves all the activities and learning.” Diane says StrongStart is among the initiatives the district has undertaken over the past five years in conjunction with Ministry of Education and community partners which are helping students to develop a love for learning and sense of belonging in the school system and their communities. Other highlights of these collaborative programs include Ready Set Learn; student RCMP boot camp; Heavy Metal Rocks, introduction to construction equipment for Grade 11/12 students; high school pre-apprenticeship training; Yes-2-It exploration in construction careers for Grade 7s; the new personalized learning agenda; on-line rural secondary program; teacher and principal leadership programs; professional learning communities and the expanded reading strategies program. “I have been so fortunate to work with such an excellent team in the district and in the schools to improve learning through innovation and creativity,” Diane says.  “The district is humming!”

Secondary suite input sought The City of Williams Lake is encouraging residents to fill out a survey in order to collect public input on rental suites in single family homes. A survey is available online at www. NN38NPT and at city hall at 450 Mart St. The survey will also be available during Local Government Awareness Week events next week: Wednesday, May 23 at Canadian Tire, Thursday, May 24 at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, and Friday, May 25 at Save On Foods, from 1-5 p.m. each day. The survey asks questions about whether the city should allow secondary suites where the homeowner does not live in the home, and how the city should approach duplexes with secondary suites. Currently, the policy states that suites are not allowed in homes where the owner is renting both the main part of the house, as well as the suite. This requirement reflects a higher

number of complaints about noise and property maintenance, where homeowners do not live in the home. It is believed that if the owner lives in the home, there will be fewer issues and complaints from both the neighbourhood and the tenant. Houses with both the main and secondary suite rented are not permitted and would either need to remove their suite or consider an application to rezone to an R-2 designation (Two Family residential). Under the secondary suites bylaw, Williams Lake zoning bylaws, and the B.C. Building Code, secondary suites are not allowed in duplexes. There are multiple safety and fire risks for suites in duplexes, as suites in duplexes have been built without building permits, the city say.   “The city has proceeded cautiously in order to minimize the impact on rental stock, city resources, and so that renters, home owners and the community are well educated on the policy,” says Coun.

Laurie Walters, chair of the Community Services Committee. “As

we move forward, it’s very important that we have heard from the

public, and I encourage residents to complete this survey.”

Kyle BC finds therapy in rap Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Creating rap that talks about life and experience is the ideal for aspiring rapper Kyle Bremner, a.k.a. Kyle BC of Williams Lake. The 24-year-old says he’s not into gangster rap that talks about shooting and stuff. Instead he likes rap and rock and roll and finds it easy to express himself through rap. Sitting at a table at the Tribune one afternoon, Bremner says he likes to freestyle. When prompted he begins without hesitating. “It feels like I’m skating on thin ice. I never learned how to skate. I’m always trying to be the best, but I can never learn to be like the rest. I’m always standing out, but I might be white. I might be the next rapper. It might be tight. Nobody else knows me, but I’m trying to show me. I’m trying to show this true self that’s inside, but I could explode see.” Bremner hasn’t taken his art to a public venue as of yet, but says he’s itching to. So far he’s only competed amongst

friends — it’s called dissing each other, he explains. They sit around and come up with raps, trying to outdo each other. At first the thought of performing in front of people terrified him, but he’s been trying it out with friends and family and enjoys it. “I talk about friends come and go, but real friends come back. How life can get hard, but you can pull yourself out of a rut. You climb mountains and might feel like your stuck.” As he relaxes into the interview, Bremner shares the details of his life. It’s one that hasn’t been easy. His hasn’t been a free ride. Right now he’s unemployed and has been for seven months. He can’t get on unemployment insurance or welfare. After couch surfing for a few months, he’s landed a bed at a friend’s, but is trying to get on his feet. “It would be nice if I was working and rapping on the side,” he says. When he was young he had to choose between going to school

Correction In last Thursday’s They Call the Cariboo Home section in the Tribune, a typography error in the story on Brenda Beaton left out an important element. After the part where Doug bought a speed boat and water skiing was offered for who-

ever was interested, the story should have continued to say: “They mounted a toilet on the float. Sitting on the can holding the ropes and hollering “hit it!” off they went with a porcelain smile.” We apologize for the error.

full-time,” Bremner recalls. He says he then started making some poor choices, but has since turned his life around. “That’s one of the things I like to rap about. How people can

turn their lives around like me. But then nobody wants to be like me because people have different opinions about different people and I stand out from everyone else.” Bremner says life could be better, but it could be worse. Rapping is therapeutic, he adds, like writing a diary almost. “You’re putting all that pain and emphasis into writing. Writing about the struggle and how hard it is to be in poverty. The chaos really.” There are a variety of ways to rap and it’s the variety of rap that artists such as Eminem, D.O.C. Tray Curry, T.I., and J. Cole have to offer that garners Bremner’s appreciation. “It’s not about how gangster they are. It’s about life. It’s about the struggle to support your family and support yourself.”

High-efficiency appliance rebates available Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

ceive up to $75 for each low-flow flush, $100 for each dual flush, and a maximum of $125 for a three litre flush. With new construction, where dual flush fixtures are installed, rebates of $50 with no maximum and $75 for all three litre fixtures will be available Under the new additions, the purchase of clothes washers and dishwashers will be eligible for a maximum of $150 for washers that have a water factor of six or less, and up to $200 with a water factor of three or less. All claims are subject to verification and the offer is on a first-come, first-served basis and may be withdrawn at any time.

Residents in Williams Lake will now be eligible for more rebates when purchasing high efficiency appliances. Since 2010 the city has offered rebates for purchasing low flow toilets. In 2012, rebates will also be offered for high efficiency clothes washers and dishwashers. A total of $25,000 — derived from the city’s water and sewer budgets — is available for the program in 2012. The first year there was $12,500, which was all redeemed, while in 2011 there was money left over. People purchasing low-flow toilets can re-

There is also a limit of two appliance rebates per residential dwelling per year. In a report to council, Joe Engelberts, manager of water and

waste for the city, noted the discharge water that leaves the homes in Williams Lake has to be treated before entering the environment.

“The less waste water the city has to treat equals a reduction in costs and a reduction on the effect to the environment,” Engelberts said.

Peel Out draws 400 riders The third annual Peel Out mountain bike event attracted more than 400 riders to Williams Lake on the weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a turnout Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium executive director Justin Calof is thrilled about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is such a rad event,â&#x20AC;? Calof said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a great kick off to the riding season, and people seem really stoked on the whole format of the event.â&#x20AC;? The festivities began Saturday with the Fox Mountain DH featuring more than 180 racers in multiple competitive classes. Alexandra Hamm took the under 18 girls class with a time of 7:05. Wilson Thompson claimed the boys 8-11 category with a time of 6:14. Ben Lesley won the under 18 menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s category with a time of 5:10. The elite womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s category was won by Janelle Robichaud with a time of 5:44. The senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s category was taken by Ivor McMahen in a time of 5:51. Bryon Black claimed the elite menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s division with a fast time of 5:07, followed by Calof with a 5:29. In the junior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s category Connor Tennant crossed the finish line in 5:29 for first place. Williams Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cory Brunelle completed the triple crown capturing all three races in the pro class. Brunelle took the DH with a 4:43 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 15 seconds faster than the 2011 winning time. Brunelle also won the pro menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s category in the Sunday Super Downhill on the Westsyde with a time of 10:06. When asked about his performance in the 2012 Peel Out Brunelle said â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Peel Out was super fun.â&#x20AC;? Following the Fox Mountain DH riders shifted venues to the Boitanio Bike Park Jump Jam Saturday afternoon, judged by Ian Hylands from Pinbike, local pro James Doerfling and Mark Savard. The junior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s category was won by Thompson, while the senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s went to Tennant, who landed a back flip after a 360-degree tail whip. Calof said Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concert featuring entertainment Drum and Bell Tower was attended by 100 people at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super Downhill took place under cloudy skies with another 100 riders participating. Thompson made the sweep of his category taking the win with a time of 14:07.

a time of 13:20, while McMahen claimed a double victory in his category with a time of 11:58.

Top B.C. racers hit Thunder Mountain this Saturday Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The best race car drivers in the province will make their way to Williams Lake this Saturday when the ARCA West OK Tire Sportsman Series (AWOTSS) invades Thunder Mountain Speedway. Kendall Thomas, AWOTSS race director, said fans are in for a treat. “It’s a culmination of all the top drivers from local race tracks around B.C. coming to Williams Lake to prove themselves,” Thomas said. “This has become one of the most competitive and tightest raced touring series probably on the west coast.” Local racing fans will recognize at least one name on the driver list as 2010 AWOTSS Rookie of the Year Ryley Seibert of Williams Lake will be in action.

The ARCA West OK Tire Sportsman Series cars return to Williams Lake this Saturday. The action starts at 6 p.m. Ryley’s dad, Trevor, who won the opening AWOTSS event May 13 in Vernon won’t be racing this weekend, Thomas said. Ryley, racing for the first time against his dad in the series, crossed the finish line in fourth to start his season. The AWOTSS is a sixrace provincial touring series, which evolved from the WESCAR series (Williams Lake, Quesnel and Prince George made up the series) to a combi-

nation of both the northern and southern regions of the province. “It’s sanctioned by the Auto Racing Club of American (ARCA) ... everyone starts at an entry level at their local track and as they learn and prepare and go through all of this these drivers eventually purchase a car that meets this specific set of rules,” Thomas said. “This is as high as you can go as far as provincial dealing.”

The engines require a two-barrel carburetor and house about 450 horsepower. “They’re mandated to run an eight-inch-wide grooved tire, too,” Thomas said. “The way it’s designed it really forces the drivers to drive well, race well and learn how to set their cars up. “It really puts focus on that and not so much focus on having big horsepower and sticky tires. They have to put the whole package together.” In addition to the AWOTSS cars local drivers will kick off their points series at the track in Heartland Toyota Pro Minis, Bone Stocks, Street Stocks and Thunders. Following local points finals the 100-lap AWOTSS main event takes place. Time trials start at 5 p.m. with racing to begin at 6 p.m.

U13 Storm claim gold medals The Williams Lake U13 Storm rep soccer team returned from the KYSA Slurpee Cup sporting gold medals around their necks. The Storm travelled to Kamloops over the long weekend to play in the annual tournament, which ran Saturday and Sunday. In its opening match the Storm dropped a

hard-fought 3-2 decision to the eventual tournament winner, Vernon United. A slow start saw the Storm fall behind early. Despite a flurry in the final minutes Williams Lake could not score the equalizer. In game two Williams Lake extinguished the Kamloops Blaze, 4-0, to advance over the home team. Defence

and offence were both firing on all cylinders, the team said, adding Kamloops was limited to just a few shots in the match. The Storm continued its winning ways Sunday morning bouncing Pemberton, 5-0. Williams Lake’s speedy forwards and stalwart defenders dominated the play, limiting Pem-

berton to only two scoring chances. In its final game of the tournament Williams Lake beat an undefeated Terrace club, 5-1, scoring early and never looking back to win the ‘B’ division. Williams Lake also hit three posts and three crossbars while only allowing three shots on its keeper.

4BMVUFUP Cataline class enjoys learning outside the box Grade 4 and 5 students at Cataline Elementary School have been learning all sorts of things this year. But their studies weren’t just restricted to reading, writing, and arithmetic — they also brushed up on their cooking, art, and sports skills. The following are a few things some of the students highlighted about their school year so far. “Our class got to make homemade butter,” says Jolene Larson. “We watched a science video and learned how to make butter and break the butter balloons. The butter was separated by the spinner, which was beating the butter up. After we were done, we made pancakes. We all got two pancakes each. On each pancake, we got homemade butter and syrup.” Sam Thiessen thought making butter was “fantastic.” “Starting off the day I walked into my classroom seeing the projector showing a Youtube video titled How to Make Butter, on the screen,” Sam says. “Also, on the side of the room there were tables with ingredients for making butter and pancakes. “When the whole class was sat down and ready to start the day, my teacher, Mrs. Smith, started the video. The video showed a man talking about how to make butter while making it. First, you have to sit out some cream for 12 hours. Then you pour the cream into either a butter churn or a plain jar.

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo Cataline Elementary School’s Grade 4/5 class reflect on some enjoyable moments from the year, including skiing, swimming, and making treats as part of the Tribune’s annual Salute to Education section. Their participation in the section also included them using their imagination and artistic talents to draw the section’s advertisements.

I was surprised when Mrs. Z (my teacher’s assistant) said that she bought her butter churn for around $150. If you put the cream in a jar, you do nice, controlled sloshes for around two to three minutes.If you happen to be using a butter churn, you spin the paddles for the same amount of time. “After sloshing the cream for two to three minutes, the cream will feel and look almost as thick as butter. After seeing the cream is thick, you take out all of the buttermilk. That is how we made the butter. “After making the butter we made pancakes. Once we fin-

ished making the pancakes we put homemade butter on them with syrup to eat. Oh, those pancakes were

so amazing! At the end of the day, Mrs. Z generously gave us some homemade butter to take home.”

4BMVUFUP&EVDBUJPO Students take home freshly churned butter From Page A18 “We all got to take some butter home,” he says. “Mrs. Zrinski helped us and we had pancakes with the butter. We all got to help make the butter, so making butter was fun.” Christopher Hinkel also helped and sees the experience as a possible financial opportunity. “We can make homemade butter and sell to people who want butter,” Christoper says. “We could also make pancakes. We will try to raise enough money to go on field trips every day.” Cordell Pinchback says the butter was creamy. “The pancakes were really fluffy,” Cordell says. “We got to eat two pancakes. We watched a video about how to make butter. When you make butter there is buttermilk that comes from the cream to make butter.” Matthew Marshall adds: “About a week or two ago me and my class learned how to make butter. We made butter and buttermilk pancakes. We watched a video about making butter. We used cream. We let the cream sit out for 12 hours. We helped make the butter. We used farm-fresh eggs.” Tannis Thompson highlighted a Christmas party the class had on the last day before the holidays. She says the class had planned it for two weeks. “My mom made cupcakes the day before the party,” Tannis says. “The whole class worked hard for the party so we could be a part of the party. Af-

slowly pulled in the parking lot, other kids arrived, and we all crammed on the bus and hit the road. The ride was slow and boring. We got there safe. The day flew by, but my favourite part was lunch. I was so hungry it hurt. On the way home, the bus crashed into the car in front of us. “I thought I levelled up on my PSP game thing. The roads were slippery on the way

back. We all got on the other bus that met us half way. We got home late but it was fun. My mom picked me up and I told her my tale of the day. That was the day skiing with my class!” On the same topic, Kerri Rankin touches on her experiences at the hill. “When I went skiing with my class I got a lesson. It was fun and I learned new things. See A Day, Page A20

Photo submitted Adawnis Wilson (left) and Tyla Garreau eat pancakes made with the buttermilk from the process of making homemade butter. The students learned how to make butter and buttermilk with their classmates. ter lunch we got set up for the party, and then we began the party. We watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas; it was so funny. We just didn’t get to watch the whole movie because we had to clean up the classroom before the end of the day.” Sara Vermeulen also watched the movie at the party. “The Christmas party was awesome,” Sara says. “We watched How

the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Everybody ate gummy worms and mini cupcakes. Speaking of food, the Grinch smashed a glass bottle and ate it. The glass bottle was green. “Our classroom is pretty small, but when you push all of the desks out of the way, we have a huge room. Nic. F and I had to leave early for hockey. I love Christmas. Do you? Our party was

awesome.” Jaxen Woods recalls a special field trip skiing at Mt. Timothy Ski Hill. “When I woke up at my house I wondered why we got up so early and then I remembered I was going skiing with my class. When we got to Mt. Timothy we went into the lodge. Beginners went first to go get ready and then novice to intermediate. I was

novice and I was skiing. I went down slow motion, big easy, and T-Bar. I went so fast down the bunny hill. I had lots of fun.” Koby Hopkins also had a great time skiing with the class. “I woke up early in the morning,” Koby says. “My mom was screaming into my room to wake me up. “I got dressed, brushed my teeth, ate and got in the car.

4BMVUFUP&EVDBUJPO A day at the hill a thrill for Grade 4/5 class From Page A19 “I also did lots of jumps and trails on Morning Side. Plus I went on Caribou and three other runs. I went to the ski hill with my mom and my friend Ethan. One time my mom fell on me getting off the chair lift. It really hurt but not that bad. At lunch time, my mom and I got chicken strips and fries. I also got Skittles. We left early and on the car ride home we heard that the bus fell over. I’m glad I wasn’t on it.” Wade Dahlback kept to the Bunny Hill. “I got to the big, long, yellow bus,” Wade says. “I thought it looked like a bumblebee. All of my friends went up the 35foot high chairlift. I was too chicken to go up the 35-foot chairlift. I thought that the Bunny Hill was very fun but it was small. Jaxen came to see me. Jaxen crashed on a powder hill. I thought that was funny. The Bunny Hill was 40 or 50 feet long. The day was very fun. Bang! Oh no, we crashed. We got out. Yes, now I can go home and game on my PS3.” Mark Johnson also went skiing. “I went to Mt. Timothy with my class and I hit lots of jumps. It was all so funny and fun for me, too. I had a good time. But the best part was when I went down the big hills. I was going to try to land a jump.” Adawnis Wilson also brushed up on some skiing skills. “I woke up at 5:46 a.m.,” Adawnis says. “I went to school at 6:45 a.m. I fell asleep on the bus. When I woke up we were almost there. I got my gear on and then I got on my skis. Then I went

Westen Becker recalls going to the pool. “I love to go swimming,” Westen says. “I get to go with Mr. Grace. Me and Mrs. Zrinski have lots of fun. One day we walked back. It was lots of fun. I like to practice swimming. I wear the CDC life jack-

et. I use their wheelchair. I like to go into the big pool, then the little pool. Sometimes I use the lift. I change in the big change room. “Then I go back with Mr. Grace and Mrs. Zrinski.” See MAKING, Page A21

I fell.” Troy Tutt-Whitelock went snowboarding. “Going snowboarding was really fun,” Troy says. “I wiped out lots. I raced my friends but I lost. We even had lessons.” Austin Feddema says he was very excited to learn his class was going

to go skiing. “Ski Day was coming tomorrow and I couldn’t wait so I went to bed early,” Austin says. “It was morning at last. I was so excited I packed my stuff because it was going to be a long trip. “I went to school and I got on the bus. I was sitting by Tyson. I asked him what he brought, an mp3, some comics, and a

book. So I said I brought comics. I hope this trip is fun.” Nic Downey says skiing with his class was fun. “It started with the bus ride,” Nic says. “The ride was long and boring. When we got there, we got our gear and went up the chairlift. The chairlift was cold and long. When Sam, Koby, and I got to the top, we went down

the trail, Morning Side. I went on a harder part than they did. When I was done, I was waiting for Sam and Koby for about five minutes. Then we returned our gear and went home. But we did not get home until five o’clock because we hit a car and had to wait for an hour. That is the day I went skiing with my class!”

4 - A SALUTE TO EDUCATION 2012 Williams Lake Tribune Thursday, May 24, 2012 A21

4BMVUFUP&EVDBUJPO Making gingerbread houses a real treat From Page A20 Stephanie Conway also finds swimming to be enjoyable. “When I go swimming, sometimes the water is cold,” she says. “I think swimming is very fun. Sometimes I think it is a bit hard. Swimming is cool. I have lots of fun swimming. My favourite part of swimming is swimming with the fish. My dad does not know how to swim.” Tyson Albrechtsen says one of the highlights of the year was getting a new bike. “I was so happy that I was getting my bike,” Tyson says. “I had to ride it when I got it. But I had to pump some air into the tires. When the tires were done I was riding it for one hour. Then on Friday my sister and her boyfriend Brad and me went to the bike park and I was so happy that I got to ride my bike. Then we went downtown. We biked to Red Shreds and me and Brad put the bikes in the workshop.” Kaylee Bennett had fun making gingerbread houses. “We made gingerbread houses with our buddy class,” Kaylee says. “We used graham crackers, icing, mints, and chocolates, and also candy canes. I enjoyed it a lot and so did our buddies. We got to take them home. We had the best time of our lives.” Cassie McGladdery also enjoyed the tasty event. “Making the gingerbread houses was really fun,” she says. “The gingerbread houses are hard to make because they fell a lot. And putting it together was hard because the icing was too thin. My little buddy Cailie

to make it.” Paige Outhouse recalls another tasty time. “My class has a little buddy class,” Paige says. “We read with our buddy class. Sometimes we do special activities. For Easter, we did a special activity. It was jelly-bean tasting. The kinds that my buddy, Keira, and I tasted were coconut, root beer, watermelon, and I think cotton candy. I forget all the rest of the flavours. Eating jellybeans was the best part.My buddy and I got five out of seven correct. We got a candy because we got five out of seven. My favourite jellybeans are rootbeer and coconut. Keira’s favourite is rootbeer. What is your favourite jelly-

bean?” Back to sports activities, Keeley Patey recalls a curling excursion. “One Friday we went curling,” Keeley says. “We learned to sweep from going to one side of the rink, then back. We learned to curl the rock by leaning our foot against a flat thing, sliding forward, then going back to push forward and releasing the rock. We all had fun (except for Austin who didn’t curl). A lot of people liked it. A lot didn’t. Some wanted to run onto the bus and do what Austin, Keiden and Troy were doing. Seeing them I wanted to run there and play. But I loved it. I want to do it again!”

One day, Mrs. Kurki brought her puppy to school, Mason Able says. “It was a German shepherd cross,” Mason says. “The colour of the puppy is brown and black. The puppy is a female and is furry and cute. Then it peed on Carson’s hand and Cassie’s hand. The dog has such a small nose and it looks so cute. It has black and white stripes that look like a tiger. I have a dog. She is a brindle boxer. She looks like a brown, striped tiger. I have two dogs, a bunny rabbit, and two cats. My grandma, who is the best in the world, has three dogs and three cats and lots of deer in her yard.”

Photo submitted Sam Thiessen says that after sloshing the cream for two to three minutes, the cream will feel and look almost as thick as butter. and my mentor Sydney were there making gingerbread houses too. When we were done they looked awesome.” Amanda Beaulieu helped make a big gin-

Toastmasters helps to develop self-confidence Marcia Reid Special to The Tribune Give a speech in front of a group of people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in front of a huge crowds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you must be kidding! That is the response many of us have to the idea of speaking in public. And, believe it or not, many people who join Toastmasters have those same fears. Some people never get over their nervousness. We call it learning to make your butterflies fly in formation. A certain amount of nervousness keeps you alert. You lose your edge if you are too relaxed. The Williams Lake Toastmasters meet Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Central Interior Services Cooperative Building, at 51 South Fourth Ave. (alley entrance) September through June. The agenda is sent out to members each week so that everyone will know how many speeches there are that evening and which individuals have volunteered to take part in the formalities of the meeting. During the evening, the selected individuals will deliver a 30-second to one-minute joke, an inspirational message, and two-minute impromptu talk. Introductions are also given each night with the theme in mind and also a new word from the grammarian.

COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK Thursday, May 24 Buddhist centre opens The new Gendun Drubpa Buddhist Centre in downtown Williams Lake will hold an open house today, Thursday, May 24 from 12 noon to 8 p.m. The centre is located at 212 South Third Ave.

Williams Lake Toastmasters president Judy Orosz chairs a meeting of the club which meets on Wednesday evenings September through June and just completed providing training in public speaking for the 2012 Stampede Queen contestants. There could be an ice-breaker speech, a speech of four-to-seven minutes or a 15-minute speech from advanced Toastmasters. Some evenings there will be a short business session or lesson which is an informational talk. This is beneficial to new and ad-

vanced Toastmaster members. We learn through education sessions as well as by participating and doing. Table topic questions and answers can be a lot of fun, once you are over your initial nervousness. Answers to these questions can be the truth or a lie or an exaggeration â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it does not matter. The idea is to get an opening, a body and a closing in two minutes, thinking on your feet. The table topic master knows ahead of time and can prepare their questions for the theme of the night or for any topic that interests them. It could be a question from a deck of table topic cards or completing a sentence, perhaps: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My greatest fear is ....â&#x20AC;? In addition to the table topics there will be an assigned grammarian, an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ah,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;ummâ&#x20AC;? counter, a time keeper, speech adjudicator and general evaluator chosen for the night, usually chosen one week ahead. When giving speeches, introductions or two-minute table topic answers individuals will try to work on an aspect of delivery which they want to improve. The adjudicator will evaluate the speeches and table topics for delivery and not for content. An evaluation will help individuals gain self-confidence. It is not a criticism, but a constructive evaluation pointing out where you can improve and what has impressed the evaluator.

It is one personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion of how you present yourself. The adjudicator will look for eye contact between you and the audience, watch for any nervous ticks, such as too many gestures, fiddling with a pen, etc. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;ahâ&#x20AC;? counter will be counting how many times you say â&#x20AC;&#x153;ummâ&#x20AC;? when you speak. Once you are at a few meetings you will begin to notice speakers on television and how many â&#x20AC;&#x153;ummsâ&#x20AC;? they use in their speeches. Toastmasters progress by levels depending on the number of speeches they give in a year, participation on the executive and in club, district, provincial and regional speech competitions. The conventions and events are held in beautiful places such as Harrison Hot Springs, around the province and can also be held in places such as Las Vegas. The more you do, the more you will get out of it. Many people have said that they enjoy coming each week. You will feel comfortable coming as everyone is there for a similar purpose, to feel comfortable speaking in front of others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first came to Toastmaster I could not even get up and say my name,â&#x20AC;? says Dorothy Ingalls. After this she participated in three speech contests. She came in third the first year, second the second year and first in the third year. See MEMBERS Page A24

MORTGAGE NEWS Home Equity – Use it to Your Advantage! Canadians purchase homes for a variety of reasons. Some want the pride and stability that comes with owning their own home while others look at home ownership as an investment tool. No matter what the reason, home ownership has proven itself to be a good, stable investment over time. While many people have chosen to purchase their first home during these times of low interest rates, there has also been a large movement towards refinancing one’s mortgage.

George and Janette Cheung of Williams Lake, B.C. are pleased to announce the engagement of their son, Kingsley Joe Cheung, to Tierre Bekker, daughter of Jeff and Dorothy Bekker of Nakusp, B.C. The wedding will take place in Nakusp, B.C. in September.

Relay for Life schedule set The schedule for the 2012 Relay For Life, June 2-3 has been firmed up. The set-up on site in Boitanio Park will begin at 5 p.m. June 2 with the survivors registration and reception beginning at 6 p.m., says Helen Owen, team lead, community giving for the Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon Division. The opening ceremonies and survivor victory lap will begin at 7 p.m. sharp. The luminary cer-

emony will take place at 9:30 p.m. There will be ongoing activities and entertainment on site throughout the night. Chuckwagon concessions will also be present overnight and breakfast will be served starting at 6 a.m. June 3. Closing and fight back ceremonies begin shortly after 6:30 a.m. with the Relay wrapping up by 7 a.m. For information contact Nancy Shelford at 250-563-0885.

By today’s mortgage rules you can refinance up to 85% of the value of your home. Meaning, you need to leave 15% equity in your home. In years past many saw their homes as a long term shelter of safety but today homeowners see the advantage of borrowing against the equity they have in their homes. They’re able to further their investment portfolios, get out of debt, send their children to university, make improvements to their home, or even boost their RRSP contributions. Where home equity was once sat upon, today it is something to be used to one’s advantage. While tapping into the equity in your home can be a great idea, you should do so with complete understanding of the process. The best thing you can do is to consult a licensed mortgage broker and financial planner to discuss how to make your home’s equity work for you.

2012 Centr Central Interior Zone Festival hosted by Williams Lake Studio Theatre

Queen coronation June 23 Sharon MacDonald Special to The Tribune Much work and preparation goes into being a Stampede Queen contestant and no one knows this better than the four girls vying for the 2012 Williams Lake Stampede Queen and Princess. After spending one day a week with Toastmasters of Williams Lake since February

each girl presented their own unique speech. Volunteering at the museum, touring the Tourism Discovery Centre, visiting city hall, and learning about the Cariboo and its rich history provided the contestants with information for their written exam. Following that the girls completed their personal interviews with a panel of seven commu-

nity judges. Modelling was a new component to the process this year with the contestants modelling at the latest spring fashion show put on at the Royal Canadian Legion. As they head into the final month of the competition, they can focus on their horsemanship skills and knowledge. The horsemanship portion of their compe-

tition will be held at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds on June 14, starting at 5 p.m. The public is invited to come out and watch. The coronation will be held in the Gibraltar Room on June 23. Tickets for the coronation will be available for purchase at the Stampede office or from any of the contestants by the beginning of June.

Members enjoy success Continued From Page A22 I love listening to her stories. She can draw them out of her memory and give you a fun brief interlude into her life. Even though participation is the key, not everyone is looking to become a master speechmaker. People join for many different reasons. They may want to build self-esteem, selfconfidence, and improve their communication and listening skills. You may improve a little or a lot, but you will definitely improve. Just ask any member we have now. Everyone has improved even if they don’t notice or think they have. “I’ve benefitted a lot from Toastmasters in terms of confidence, speaking ability and meeting many new friends,” says Cody Slinn. Delaikr Ignatius says: “I believe Toastmasters has helped me to express

my voice with poise. I am very proud to say I am a second generation Toastmaster of my family.” “I find Toastmasters to be very beneficial,” says Kelyn Paul. “It has taught me the tools to use with public speaking such as being aware of using “ahs” and “ums,” knowing when to pause, but mainly being comfortable speaking in front of crowds. Cheryl Chan says she

and her husband, Jamie, joined Toastmasters to become better speakers, gain self-esteem and to be able to make and maintain eye contact with people. “Jamie and I are in the business of real estate investing,” Chan says. “I have been going to Toastmasters since January 2012 and it has helped me by coming out of my shell to offer to get up in front of a group, trying to refrain from saying too

many “ahs,” “ums,” and “sos” when you are nervous to fill in the silent spots.” Toastmasters are involved in the community in many ways, most notably in the public speaking training for the Stampede Queen contestants each year. This year the club is training four contestants. The club meets for an hour one night a week. Come out and feel free to speak!

150 Mile Spring Fever Family Dance a hit Lara Roorda Special to The Tribune The second annual Spring Fever Family Dance at 150 Mile Elementary School on Friday April 27 was a great success. A total of 320 students, parents, family and friends danced the night away at this event organized by the 150 Mile House parent advi-

sory council. Door prizes included a new child’s mountain bike donated by Jason Skuratow Backhoe Service and a variety of gift baskets containing items donated by the students and packaged by the PAC. There was also a used book sale with proceeds going to the school library fund and silent auction with many fabu-

lous donations from the community. The limbo contest was a big hit, as was a guest video appearance by Elmo. 150 Mile parents, administration, teachers (in school time), and students all pitched in to promote, organize, decorate, set up, run and attend this fun family event. The PAC also extends thanks to sponsors About
