Ninety-hectare Riske Creek fire contained Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

Inside the Tribune NEWS Pioneer in film sizzle.


SPORTS A9 Scenes from the Show and Shine. COMMUNITY A12 Crimes of the Heart impresses. Weather outlook: Mix of sun, cloud today, high of 17 C. Cloudy Wednesday, high of 21 C.

A 90-hectare fire west of Riske Creek on Bald Mountain is 100 per cent contained. The fire grew to 50 hectares in size on Sunday. Fire retardant and two pieces of heavy equipment, coupled with the help of natural barriers, helped prevent the fire from growing overnight, Cariboo Fire Centre communications officer Jenny Fremlin says. However, the fire’s size was

upgraded to 90 hectares Monday afternoon. “Today (Monday) there are 25 Cariboo Fire Centre crew personnel, one response officer and 20 contract crew personnel, and one helicopter manning the fire. The fire is 30 per cent machine guarded — the two pieces of heavy equipment are working to build a fuel-free guard as a perimeter.” The cause is still under investigation at this time and Fremlin says it is not considered an interface fire,

meaning there are no homes nearby. A 47-hectare fire discovered at Siwash, west of Anaham, May 12 is out, and an 11-hectare fire discovered at Konni Lake on May 13 is also out. One 20-person unit crew and four single resources from the Cariboo Fire Centre are currently in Ontario assisting with fire suppression activities, and another single resource left for Quebec from Kamloops last week. Additionally, two 20-person unit

crews, and three single resources, left to Quebec from Prince George. “The personnel from the Cariboo Fire Centre already deployed and the ones leaving today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) are part of a larger contingency currently deployed or soon to be deployed out of province,” Fremlin says. “Sufficient resources remain to respond to any fires that may occur and we are continuously assessing the situation. Should it change, crews can be recalled within 24 hours.”

Paul St. Pierre receives honorary doctorate Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Paul St. Pierre is the first person to receive an honorary doctorate from Thompson Rivers University, Williams Lake campus, an honour he received during the 2012 convocation held May 25. “It’s the first time we’ve given one out from this campus. It’s very significant,” TRU president and vicechancellor Dr. Alan Shaver told the Tribune. St. Pierre received two standing ovations — one when he received the doctorate and certificate, another

when he finished giving his address to the graduates. “His achievements have been both relative and appropriate to TRU. He embodies TRU’s commitment to community, diversity and citizenship. It gives TRU great pleasure to give Paul St. Pierre the degree of doctor of letters,” director Dr. Ray Sanders said after outlining St. Pierre’s numerous achievements as a journalist, author, former member of parliament, police commissioner, activist and television writer. It’s an honour to receive a doctorate from the university that represents the Chilcotin and Cariboo, St.

Pierre said as he pointed his remarks to the students. “You are the ones that are riding on the swinging gates of history,” he said. “That gate is swinging more rapidly than on many other occasions in history. It’s not enough to say they’re a new generation; of course they are. If there were no new generations we’d still be with William the Conqueror and the times before him.” This generation is facing a particular challenge — the days of muscular labour are gone for mankind, he suggested, saying it doesn’t matter if someone is as strong as two bulls.

“The same goes for your power of skills with your hands. That’s passed.” There are very few things now that humans can do as well as robots do, he said. “We’re being narrowed down to education, yes and no. Education is certainly going to be the next springboard into the new world we’re going into. I don’t know what that world is — don’t ask me. I’m not smart enough. But it is going to be very different than the world is now.” See ST. PIERRE Page A3

NEWS Pioneer Log Homes gets filmed in a sizzle segment Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer If all goes as hoped, Williams Lake’s Pioneer Log Homes could be featured in a series of documentaries for television. Los Angeles producer Adam Wilkenfeld of Documentary Makers, along with a crew from Paperny Entertainment of Vancouver, are in Williams Lake over the next five days filming some short film segments to entice a yet-to-be named network. Wilkenfeld was here in November and created a seven-minute film, what they call a sizzle in the film industry, and is now back to flesh out the story further. “We have an idea for a docu-reality television program that will be telling the story about Pioneer Log Homes. The people that work there,

the challenges that they encounter. The projects of massive scale that they create for people of huge fame and fortune all over the world for whom this is a dream come true that these people are making into reality, “ Wilkenfeld said. It’s an honour to tell the story with the company and its clients, he added. “I think the whole world wants to see it and we have a broadcaster who thinks so too. So they asked me to come back and shoot a little bit more.” Filming will continue until Tuesday and then by the middle of the month Wilkenfeld will be able to show the network a little bit more. “Hopefully they love it and they say ‘go get em’ and we’ll come back again in the summer and shoot a few episodes up here and travel to see the project through its deliv-

alerted and warned the project will go from zero to 60 really fast. “TV production is like that. There’s lots of prep time, but when everything happens we’ll

need everything yesterday. We’ll have to bring in crews and equipment, have catering lined up, places to stay, rentals and equipment. “It’s important that

we make friends around the community so that we are on the last day as welcome as we are on the first day so that when season two comes around the doors are still open.” Looking around the room during a reception held at the Tourism Discovery Centre, which incidentally was built by Pioneer Log Homes, Wilkenfeld was grinning from ear to ear. “There’s nothing like Pioneer Log Homes anywhere in the world — that’s why we’re here. Wish us luck this weekend,” he said. Mayor Kerry Cook welcomed the crew on behalf the city and said it’s exciting for the community and company, and she wished him the best of luck. “Anything we can do on behalf of the city, let us know,” she added. Chuckling coun. Su-

rinderpal Rathor piped in that there are big city trucks with city logos on them. One of the company owners, Andre Chevigny, said if people could see the seven-minute sizzle made in three to four days of filming they’d be impressed. “It’s really first class and pretty exciting and we’re thankful for having the crew here,” Chevigny said. “You guys are good TV. It’s so fascinating,” Wikenfeld responded. Bryan Reid Sr., also an owner of Pioneer Log Homes, said the project is an “accidental happening by chance.” “Adam was making a series of documentaries called Saw Dogs about chain saw carvers and happened to meet one who was creating a piece for one of our customers,” Reid explained.

came to him in a vision. After having the vision, and seeing the answer, he spent 40 years trying to prove it. “That’s kind of the world you’re going into. Best of luck and remember one thing: the ordinary, common man, ordinary in every way, is far, far more important than we give him credit

for. The common man is a very decent citizen. “And unless the pendulum’s going to swing really far, too far that there’s going to be blood in the streets, but if it doesn’t swing too far then you can depend on the common man to preserve you where the most brilliant people are not doing so.”

St. Pierre offers advice to TRU grads Continued From Page A1 The only advice he said he could give was that the students should be prepared and ready for the change. “Don’t fall into the trap, which I and many other people like me did, of thinking there’s a superiority of the left side of the brain because it is scientific and can be shown by experiment to be correct time and time again.” It may be so, but there is also in the right side of the brain the capacity to get you off the train tracks when the train’s coming. “Different parts of the brain operate at different times and in different ways. Don’t be ashamed of either of them.” For about 30 or 40 years of television made a change. “Television, for rea-

sons I cannot imagine, appeals to the right-hand side of the brain. The impulsive, all-seeing side of the brain. Television is now on its last legs. We have moved over into the Internet.” “You should expect to go through your life making frequent changes, even revolutionary ones. A few lucky ones among you will happen to choose a profession that will last your working life, but that will be very few of you.” Suggesting that the students are entering a time when the power of democracy is being lessened, and society is not “fast-moving” in its political life, St. Pierre said more and more people are not committed to any political party. Half of the people are not voting anymore and that’s a very bad sign. “I don’t know what the results are going to

be. I’m here as a person who feels that we’re teetering on the edge of a new way of thinking, a new way of conducting politics, a new way governing ourselves, a new way, even of marrying, and I must say I regret that one, because I still happen to believe that marriage is the best institution that mankind has ever developed.” One of the districts in the United States has now introduced 15-year marriages. “At the end of that time, you make up your mind whether you want to get married for another five, 10 or 15 years or you call it off. I don’t welcome that, but if you’re thinking the right way you should be able to grapple with it and come out with your own answers.” Wishing the graduates all the best in their careers, he said some of

them will amaze everybody with their grasp of things. “Keep in mind, one of the best-known major figures of my time, Albert Einstein. “He was not particularly bright; we tend to forget that. He never finished high school and his teachers were to some doubt as to wheth-

er he would ever make it,” St. Pierre pointed out. Einstein had a tremendous right vision of what the world could and should be, St. Pierre said. He said more than once that his vision of the new world, the well-known expression, e equals mc squared,

give me a background on where people are coming from, what the reasoning is. Maybe one side needs to pay attention to the other side and vice versa because there are so many issues.” Finding out what people think is more important than his opinion, he adds. Most of his working career has involved warehouse management, where he’s found the challenge to keep things in order rewarding. “I guess that’s the way I look at life. I’m not a fanatic or anything, but to me my life needs to be like that, too. That’s what bothers me about

government. It’s not very orderly. It’s very mixed up and the bureaucracies are against each other. They haven’t made things work in a way that they flow together.” Instituting the HST, going ahead with the Site C Dam, approving pipelines, or lessening the clout of the utilities commission are some of the examples Young flags as the government’s attempt to “muzzle” public input. “If we had enough Independents in the province you would have great representation in each constituency, you would get a bunch of people that would de-

could be taxed considerably more at no real damage to the companies. “They’re our resources, and companies should pay more for extracting them. We should regulate the amount that’s coming out.” Ideally he wants to look after the people in the region and lobby for their concerns. Looking to the 2013 election, Young suggests it could be a four-person race in which he comes dead last, but hopes he’ll be able to say at least he tried.



Gary Young of Lac La Hache, B.C. plans to run as an Independent in the next provincial election. Young was president of BC First up until recently. “I’m going to do a year of campaigning,” Young told the Tribune, adding he had never belonged to a political party until he and his wife Maureen joined the BC First Party last year. Young left his presidency post with BC First because the party is going in a different direction, he says. “They’ve decided to be a support group for Independents rather than have a flag. It’s all about promoting Independent status anyway, because the platform of BC First is that we will treat any MLAs under us as Independents.” His main focus, which he alleged can’t be done within the party system, is to respond to people when they ask questions by asking them what they think. Using Taseko Mines Ltd.’s proposed New Prosperity Mine as an example, Young says he wants to know why people are for it or why they are against it. “If I ask those questions, the answers will

mand the truth come to debate, and you could directly represent your riding.” A fan of reading the Legislative Assembly on Hansard, Young says a lot of things have happened that people don’t hear about. “Independent MLA Bob Simpson’s done a good job of letting the public know more information. Leaked documents reveal what’s really going on with government.” Young’s a fan of electronic voting, especially with referendums that could ask four questions at once. “It costs a lot less and the most amazing thing is you get to find exactly what people think in a very short amount of time about something that’s controversial. Then you publish the results and tell us what you are going to do about those results.” When it comes to tax reductions for industry, Young says he has yet to see one tangible benefit. “Show me one job or one tiny expansion, anything that is a benefit to us for all the taxes that major corporations don’t pay.” Businesses can pay more and they’re laughing that they don’t, he adds, suggesting the northeast’s resources

Buddhist centre opens in WL Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer After meeting in apartments and homes, the local chapter of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayan Tradition (FPMT) has opened the Gendun Drubpa Buddhist Centre in Williams Lake. During an open house held May 24, Venerable Patricia Devoe and director Colleen O’Neill said it was a day to celebrate. As people milled about the new centre, located in a newly renovated home in the 200 block of Third Avenue South, they listened to music and enjoyed home-made food. “You should have seen it six months ago,” Devoe said of the house. “We totally rewired it and renovated to bring it up to code.” O’Neill said the chapter was meeting at one of the member’s homes out at Spoken Lake and before that at Devoe’s basement apartment on Mission Road.

Then along came an opportunity to engage in transforming a home in the downtown into the centre. “It took us six months and all the work was done by our members and people who just came and offered their help, big and small. It was amazing,” Devoe explained. A neighbour often arrived with a pot of tea and goodies, O’Neill added. There are only two FPMT centres in Canada — the other is in Ontario — so the chapter felt it was important to celebrate with an open house and let the public know what they have to offer. “People are coming and telling us they did not know there was a Buddhist site here in Williams Lake. Or other people say ‘I’ve seen you around,’” Devoe said with a smile, glancing at her traditional burgundycoloured robe. There are seven confirmed members who pay membership and are committed to the group,

and a larger family of about 75 who will come to weekend seminars with travelling teachers, a meditation class, drop in for a conversation or to watch a Dharma DVD. The bigger family of support helps the smaller family keep going, O’Neill said. Following on the heels of a series of spring teachings that were recently completed, the centre will be offering meditation classes, something they’ve been offering for six years. “They run for six weeks and are so successful that people don’t want them to end so Colleen (O’Neill) came up with a brilliant idea of offering half-hour meditations Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.” DeVoe said. It doesn’t involve any teaching, just strictly guided meditation for half an hour for people who have some background and some foundation in meditation. During the summer

they will offer Dharma movies and reading sutras on Sunday mornings, along with Dharma discussions. “That will take us to winter when we have our annual winter break. All FPMT centres have a winter break and then we start up again in the spring,” O’Neill explained. Originally from Tennesse, and by way of Tibet, Nepal, India and Scotland, Devoe arrived in Williams Lake six years ago, on the suggestion of spiritual leader Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Before there was a centre there was a study group, O’Neill explained. “When you affiliate with FPMT you start out as a study group to see if it’s going to be a good fit for you and a good fit for them. “They gave us some materials to study and discover if it was the right thing and after two years we were invited to become a centre.”

t’s lilac time. As regular readers of this column know, lilacs are my favourite. Before so many of them fell to development, they were everywhere in Williams Lake. Granted, it wasn’t a pleasant time for people with allergies, but the French whole Connection town sure smelled Diana French good. The lilac is the city’s official flower, although you’d never know it. They are strangely lacking from most city properties. Judging from the look of many lawns this spring (including mine) maybe the dandelion should be our official flower. *** Some B.C. cabinet ministers like to call those who disagree with them communists/socialists. That’s so 1950s, but when they aim at critics of BC Hydro they are really off base. It was Social Credit Premier W.A.C. Bennett (hardly a lefty) who instituted BC Hydro. BC Rail was already a Crown corporation but Mr. Bennett “unprivatized� the BC Ferries and the three corporations served British Columbians well for half a century. One of the reasons Premier Gordon Campbell gave for selling BC Rail was that it was losing money. After years of success under several governments, BC Hydro is now deeply in debt. Does that make it ripe for sale? Or has it been sold out already? *** When salmon farms were first introduced, they seemed like a good idea. When evidence to the contrary began appearing, senior governments sided with the industry denying anything was wrong. Now farms on both sides of the U.S./Canada border are destroying thousands of their fish because of a virus. Guess what? Disease was exactly what the critics were warning about. Now the provincial government wants to make it illegal for any citizen, including journalists, to discuss any kind of animal contamination or disease outbreaks (bird flu, fish-farm viruses, mad cow disease, etc.) and the Animal Health Act apparently will override Freedom of Information laws. Can somebody explain to me how this is in the public interest? Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune. She is a former Tribune editor, retired teacher, historian, and book author.

Our Viewpoint

No nukes in Japan Is the world’s infatuation with nuclear power finally over? Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima... We get the message over and over again that everything comes at a high cost, but it takes a while for the message to sink in. Maybe because the alternatives are not that great. Gas, oil, coal. Even the natural alternatives get certain segments of the population riled up - wind farms with their huge generators, hydro-electric dams that change the nature of our rivers. But, we’ll never have the incentive to explore other alternatives as long as we have unlimited (we think) sources of fuel to power our cars, trucks, air conditioners, plasma TVs, our cities, etc. What do you do when the power goes out in the middle of the day? No computers, no kitchen appliances, no television, no radio. Do you go for a drive? What if the only vehicle was a bicycle? Or a horse? What a difference it makes in our lives. I’ll be the first to admit that I get a little anxious when

I’m unexpectedly disconnected from my computer and the Internet. Not as bad as I used to be, but yeah, I need to get a life. Japan shut down its last remaining nuclear reactor last week. Since the earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011, they’ve been taking them offline for maintenance — the ones that weren’t immediately damaged in the catastrophe — and leaving them off. Before this all happened, Japan relied on nuclear energy for a third of its electricity. Their government is expecting rising carbon emissions as Japan is forced to turn to oil and gas for energy, but there is no word of that yet. The Japanese are smart, industrious people and I’m betting that it won’t be long before they come up with cleaner, more efficient energy sources. Up until now, alternative energy hasn’t really been taken seriously. It’s at a pretty rough stage as underfinanced fringe companies are the only ones offering it. But this might be the impetus that finally puts alternative energy on the mass market. — Wendy Coomber

ummer is near and it’s that incredibly exciting time of year for 17- and 18-year olds across the province. As the school year comes to an end I would first like to congratulate all of this year’s graduates. It is a very important time in your lives and there are endless opportunities ahead of you. One of the most interestMLA ing ways Musings the province has Donna Barnett ever conjured to get youth excited about their futures and educated about opportunities is JobFest. Rolling into the Cariboo Chilcotin this June, this interactive, rock concert-themed mobile jobs event is sure to turn some heads — and not just because it’s accompanied by headlining rock talent. JobFest aims to educate youth aged 15-25 about labour market trends and upcoming career opportunities in our province. Over the next decade, there will be more than one million job openings in B.C. — we want to make sure youth know about these opportunities and have the skills they need to fill those positions. JobFest also offers an engaging exhibition that features presentations and guest speakers, inspiring youth stores, interactive career discovery tools and games, and various information displays. JobFest staff are extremely knowledgeable about the many resources and services available for jobseekers in B.C., and are always willing to answer any questions. They may even give you some free JobFest souvenirs such as t-shirts and DVDs. JobFest will be at the Williams Lake Stampede from June 29 to July 1, in Quesnel July 4 and 100 Mile House on July 6. It’s time to get excited about your futures! Be sure to check it out! I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the BC Liquor Distribution Branch for helping fundraise for local dry grad events throughout my riding. Cariboo-Chilcotin School District 27 received $10,943 from the BC Liquor Store’s Support Dry Grad campaign to support alcoholfree high school graduation celebrations in their communities. This is no doubt a time to celebrate, but it’s vital that these celebrations are safe and responsible. To the class of 2012, congratulations! You’ve come a very long way and have bright futures ahead indeed. I wish each and every one of you the very best. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

We’re replacing our old analog meters with new digital smart meters which will have many benefits for customers such as faster power restoration when there’s an outage and new tools to help you manage your energy use to save energy and money. So far, more than 1.2 million meters have been exchanged with very few problems. We know deployment of new equipment on this scale will not be perfect, but we’re doing our best to ensure our customers are not inconvenienced by any issues that may occur. Over the past weeks, some customers have asked if the cause of a higher bill may be due to a new smart meter. We take every customer concern very seriously and investigate each one thoroughly. In the overwhelming number of inquiries, we’ve determined that bills are consistent with past use; or there has been a manual meter misread which we immediately correct. If that doesn’t explain it, we look at every other possible source, including the meter. As is the case with any massproduced electronic device, there will be a small number of meters that have components that don’t work properly. Out of more than 1.2 million meters installed to date there have been very few meters that have had problems. The vast majority of these errors were caught by system checks and did not affect customer bills. In the future, when our smart grid is operational, we will be able to detect many problems on our grid automatically and fix them much faster. We appreciate our customers’ continued patience as we work to complete the installation of the new meters this year. To learn more about the new meters, visit To find out more about your bill, sign up for an online account at, or call our customer service team at 1-800-224-9376.

Unbelievably, my 20-year-old niece, Madison Scott, remains missing after mysteriously disappearing on Saturday, May 28, 2011, from the Hogsback Lake forestry campsite 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof, one hour west of Prince George. She was camping with a group of young people, new found friends, from Vanderhoof. The group was celebrating a friend’s birthday and

at the end of the evening Maddy was left on her own in her tent. Everyone else left the party by about 4 a.m. Something happened between 4 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. that led to Maddy’s disappearance; foul play is suspected. Maddy remains missing despite a vigorous and in depth RCMP investigation and ongoing efforts by family and friends. Someone knows where she is but they have not come forward with the truth. The purpose of this letter

is to appeal to all British Columbians and visitors to be watchful for and mindful of anything suspicious as they head out into the outdoors as summer approaches. Our family needs everyone’s help! Our hearts are shattered by Maddy’s disappearance. Further information, including photos of Maddy, can be found on, or the Help Find Madison Scott Facebook page. If anyone knows anything, hears

anything, sees anything that will help bring Madison home to her family please call the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (anonymously, if needed). You can also write to Madison Scott Search, Box 1190, Vanderhoof, BC, V0J 3A0. Thank you for helping us to find Maddy and for helping to put our family back together again.

Yuletide Dinner Santa will be greatly missed Editor: The community of Williams Lake has lost a very dear friend in George Suttis, aka. Yuletide Dinner long-standing Santa. George was Santa for the Yuletide Dinner for 11 years until a few years ago when he handed

his gifts to a neighbouring Santa in training that lived down the lane. George loved seeing the children’s faces light up and we have all been privileged to have George be a part of our special community evening and our lives. George with all his ho, ho, ho-

ing and handing out of beautiful homemade stockings filled with oranges, candy canes and gifts always made the Yuletide Dinner complete. George, our friend, you will be sorely missed. You were a kind, giving man, who touched the heart of so many in our commu-

nity, especially at Christmas. We will say our goodbyes with love and wonderful memories. Some of Santa George’s biggest fans, Vanessa Riplinger, the staff at the Child Development Centre and the hundreds of children he gave gifts out to at Christmas

Chamber Chatter: Guest speakers coming to luncheon


he Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business in Williams Lake and area. We promote the well being of business in Williams Lake and district, and foster a work-, stayand-play-at-home atmosphere to all residents. Welcome to our newest members: 3Gen Cabinetry Corp., Cariboo Auto & Spring, Cariboo Canoe and Kayak Rentals, Cariboo Connector, Hear Clear Fawn’s Hearing Solutions, Kiwanis Club of Williams Lake, Sinders & Ashes, and Tallheo Cannery Guest House. We look forward to meeting you all at the general meeting! Why join the chamber? This is probably the question that is asked the most and the answer is the same, networking, networking, and networking. It is the single most important opportunity for your business. So you say I’ve heard that before but what does it mean? The short answer is use the opportunity as an excuse to interact with your peers, no matter if they work within your particular type of business or not. Networking is guaranteed to increase exposure to what you do and creates a visual in a potential customer’s mind of each individual company. Now that you have started some networking, learn from each other. If you are a new business or have been around a long time (and some of you have) you can pick up new

ideas or a different way to do something or find a common goal to perhaps work together. At least once a month at the Chamber of Commerce, the room is buzzing with all kinds of things. Sometimes when a member hasn’t attended for a few months they say there are new faces here. Of course, because things are always changing and you need to keep up with it. When you network you come out of the isolation that occurs to you sometimes in business. By being a member of an organization and staying involved, you become visible to your fellow members and who knows, you may be asked to become involved in the newest business venture. Don’t forget another benefit is meeting new people just like you who are trying to succeed in this community. They will appreciate your experience and knowledge that goes into the making of a great community like Williams Lake. The Visitor Centre is open seven days a week. We have so much information on river rafting, hiking, biking, bird watching, accommodations, fishing, geocaching and everything you need to have a great holiday in our region. We have camping information as well as passports for you to get so that you can receive a beautiful water bottle for free when you visit the visitor centres in our area. Call us toll free at 1-877-9675253 or visit our website.

We invite everyone to attend our general meeting luncheon on May 31, from 11:45 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Signal Point Restaurant. Chamber meetings offer businesses the opportunity to meet other businesses. We ask that you help us and the restaurant to RSVP by Wednesday by calling 250-3925025.

Gold Rush trail celebrating 150 years Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The Cariboo Gold Rush is definitely a strong draw for tourism says Amy Thacker, CEO, Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association. “It’s a strong draw. Every year we get passionate visitors from all over the world. There’s so much history here that’s tied to all of British Columbia. It’s great fun.� People will come to the region to learn and experience the history and will stop at all the mile houses and check out the old sites, plaques, and what’s still standing. And with 2012 being the 150th anniversary of the Gold Rush Trail and Barkerville, it’s anticipated even more visitors will be passing through the region. “Most of the events are being led by Barkerville in August. They have the national gold panning championships for their signature birthday celebration and they are working diligently on a couple of other events,� Thacker explained, adding CCCTA is working co-operatively with Barkerville to spread the word in commu-

nities along the entire route from Victoria, which is also celebrating its 150th, all the way up. “Right now as we speak there’s a twoweek NBC television campaign going on in San Francisco to connect with the Gold Rush coming out of San Francisco on the boats up to Victoria and Vancouver and coming through,� Thacker says. “One week with our partner region to the south — Vancouver Coast and Mountains — and they’re talking about the southern half of the route and then one week where we’re promoting the north half of the route all the way into the terminus at Barkerville.� The campaign entails 15-second teaser spots and 30-second advertisements. “It’s actually really good timing because Tourism British Columbia is in market in California right now with the 100 BC Moments and the whole provincial campaign so it’s good timing to piggy back on some great exposure in the California market and encourage people to come north on the Gold Rush Trail this summer.� On May 18, Thacker

gave a presentation to the Cariboo Regional District board, touching on the tourism framework and how it fits into the provincial and national structure. Al Richmond, CRD chair, was encouraged by Thacker’s promotion of partnerships within communities of the region. “What I am encouraged about is when we worked with advertising and utilizing our forest capital as a tourism attraction,� CRD chair Al Richmond says. “It was a huge benefit for us, and in working in collaboration and looking for synergies it gives us opportunities to promote tourism in the region.� “We know last year wasn’t a particularly good year and the numbers were down, but we weren’t down as much as they were in other regions. I think Amy sees this as a time when we can jump in and work together.� Building partnerships will also help leverage funding to do certain programs. While the CRD doesn’t have a specific budget for tourism, it does see its recent trail expansion program as a way to enhance tour-

ism. “Those projects — making trails wheel-

chair accessible — are happening from Bridge Lake to Wells,

so you have a huge opportunity to promote the region, along with

bike trails and everything else,� Richmond says.

Speedway hosts opener to much fanfare Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer It started out looking so good for Williams Lake racer Ryley Seibert Saturday. Racing in front of his home town crowd at Saturday’s Heartland Toyota 100 at Thunder Mountain Speedway — the second stop on the ARCA West OK Tire Sportsman Series provincial tour — Seibert sent the large crowd into a frenzy early, breaking the old track record with a time of 15.852 seconds. Not to be outdone, Seibert’s competition — Mark Berriau, Sarah Cornett-Ching, Logan Jewel, Dave Olson and Ian Graham — finished within two tenths of a second of Seibert’s qualifying time. During the 100-lap main event, however, Seibert ran into a slough of trouble leaving Prince George’s Logan Jewel to scoop up the checkered flag, and the momentum, heading back to Prince George June 16 for race three of the series. Seibert’s trouble began on lap 28 where drivers Jewel and Trevor Adelman were jockeying

for position. Adelmean, shuffling toward the back of the pack, however, drew a yellow flag and damaged Seibert’s right front fender in the process. Under the ensuing caution lap Seibert attempted to rub the remaining piece of fender off on the wall but was sent into the pits for repair. Following a long stretch of clean racing Seibert slid off the backstretch, narrowly missed the wall and spun into turn three. He would finish the race in seventh place. Meanwhile, a duel between Berriau and Jewel provided solid action heading into the final 10 laps. When the checkered flag was raised it was Jewel in first, Berriau in second and Olson in third. Point standings in the AWOTSS after two races have Berriau hanging onto first place overall. Also featured Saturday were local Bone Stock, Heartland Toyota Pro Mini, Thunder and Street Stock classes. The main event results are as follows: Bone Stock: Sean Kelly (also won fast time).

sports Pedal by the Puddle goes June 10 Ivor McMahen Special to The Tribune The fifth annual Pedal by the Puddle mountain biking event is coming up Sunday, June 10. Once again more than 150 riders of all abilities from all parts of the province will take part in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enduroâ&#x20AC;? format event, which takes place over six hours on a 10-kilometre loop. The object is to complete the greatest number of laps. There is a solo category for the hardcore riders, but most people ride as a team of two riders. Only one member of the team is on the course at any one time. In other words itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relay and you take turns riding. The course on South Lakeside features some of the best of Williams Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous singletrack. The Pedal by the Puddle includes sections of Rotnee, Twizzler, Cabin Loop, the South Lakeside Ridge, Moose Drops, the old Gun-ANoot downhill, Guiness, and Leppard Spots. Last year overall entries increased to 157. Again this year there will be a Mini Pedal by the Puddle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a kids event for all ages and abilities. This will be a short, easy event with the emphasis on participation and fun.

This year there are also two exciting additions to the event. Scott bicycles, makers of high performance mountain bikes, will be at the event with demo bicycles for people to try, including several models with the increasingly popular 29-inch wheel size. Also, pedal organizers are bringing in a special guest announcer, Brett Tippie. Originally from Kamloops, Tippie is a freeride mountain biking legend, and more recently has moved into event announcing, having MCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d such noted events as the Whistler Crankworx. His unique and lively style is sure to make for an entertaining day. The event is open to anybody of any age who wants to enter; however, some degree of experience riding mountain bike trails is necessary for you to enjoy the course safely. Most of the course is rolling singletrack and is a loop which finishes where it starts, so there is uphill riding involved. There are no jumps, apparatus or drop-offs. However, some sections are somewhat technical and steep. The course map is posted on the event website and the course is al-

Tuesday, June 5 Unusual Venus view

From Office Hours Terra McGuire, director/set designer Micheal Hodgson, Therisa Piemer, and Shane Tollefson listen intently to the adjudicatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critique after staging their play.

Adjudicator Amy Baskin provided thoughtful critiques of each production.

Amy Baskin provided audiences with short adjudications after each production and longer working sessions with each of the casts and crews following their performances. She helped the actors and crews work on developing nuances that would improve their productions. Kalysta Szauer is just 17 and an example of the Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing efforts to encourage more people to join and enjoy theatre. The Grade 12 WLSS student played the talking head in the Studio Theatre production of the Clumsy Custard Horror Show and Ice Cream Clone Review earlier this year and then admireably took on the much more demanding role of the anguished and abused Babe in Crimes of the Heart. She is also working back stage on the WLSS production of Alice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am loving it. It is such a powerful part,â&#x20AC;? Kalysta says of her role as Babe. She gives her family the credit for encouraging her in theatre. Both her aunt Katalin and her dad Augustine have been on stage in previous Studio Theatre productions.

Wonderland that will be on stage at the school later in June. After graduation Kalysta is thinking of a career in backstage theatre but for next year she plans to work in the UK. She was an exchange student last year in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Dance revue this weekend Gaeil Farrar photo

Every second year The Maureen Saunders School of Dance mounts a spectacular revue of student work and the big event is coming up this weekend, June 2 and 3. Tickets are sold out for the Saturday evening performance but Saunders says there are still some tickets left for the Sunday afternoon performance at the studio on Oliver Street. Bella Shoults, 5, getting pointers from Saunders in dress rehearsal last week, is the youngest of the more than 100 young dancers in the show titled In the Spotlight. The revue features classical ballet as well as modern jazz and hip hop numbers. To see more photos, visit www.wltribune. com/community.

Four Cariboo Idols from Williams Lake Four of this year’s top 10 Cariboo Idols are from the Williams Lake area and include 150 Mile House’s Mark Gilman, Amber Bowen, Oren Barter and Brett Myrfield from Williams Lake. They will join Kenny Sperling and Jillian Thomson of 100 Mile House; Kira Saenger of Canim Lake; Mikayla Mosher of 108 Mile; Jason Ruscheinsky of Roe Lake, and John Goodwin of Quesnel in performances at various venues around the Cariboo this summer. Cariboo Idol auditions were held May 14-16 at the South Cariboo Recreation Centre in 100 Mile House. This year’s competitors range in age from 13 to 64 years old. Organizer Rob Fry says he was “pleasantly surprised” with the talent and turnout. “I feel this will be a fun group to work with this year.” This year, the idols

will be playing their own instruments or be accompanied by musicians. They will be having the freedom to mix things up a bit during the concerts this year by performing together with other Idols on stage. Fry will be interviewing the Idols live on his online radio station,, as well as having them play a few songs at the station throughout the day. Noting it was the first time for some of them on stage, he says that even with some stage nerves, everyone worked through it and did very well at their first two concerts of the season.

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 Williams Lake Tribune

community Valedictorian creates family wherever she goes Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Shawna M. Sellars is an inspiration. The 23-year-old Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake student celebrated graduating from the business office assistant with bookkeeping applications program on May 25 and spoke as the 2012 valedictorian. A First Nations woman from the Soda Creek Indian Band, Sellars has had sole custody of her four younger sisters — aged 16, 14, nine and seven — for almost five years. She was born in Kamloops and lived back and forth between Williams Lake and Vancouver for a total of eight years. “I was a foster child during my entire childhood, living in over 30 foster homes and 12 different schools. I

have now lived in Williams Lake for 12 years. As Mayor Kerry Cook would say I decided to become an overcomer instead of a victim.” She had a rough time in high school and did not graduate. “I did not have the honour of being a graduate, getting my hair done, being in the grad parade or anything to do with prom. “Upon graduation from the applied business technology program I will also finish my grade 12 diploma.” Sharing what motivated her to return to school, she recalled working in a local restaurant. “I spent my job sweeping and mopping floors, doing dishes and helping the odd customer. After doing that for a couple of months I realized I was much more capable of doing more.” Sellars is involved

with causes around child welfare and regularly speaks about her experiences of being in care. “This allows me to empower others like myself and inform others that don’t know much about what happens from the child’s point of view. This is something I’m very passionate about.” In the past year she has spoken in front of crowds as big as 400 people at least a dozen times. “I believe that people cannot fix things until they know what has been broken,” she said. Throughout the year Sellars maintained an A average, and was the recipient of the most inspirational, leadership and academic achievement awards in her class. “It’s nice to be recognized for the hard work you put in,” she said. Many late nights were spent with fellow stu-

dent Kathryn Allan in the computer lab. “We spent the evenings working to meet deadlines that seemed to work well with student council having meetings and having pizza inside the cafeteria. You can never go wrong with pizza.” Some of the things she’s interested in pursuing include social work, teaching and chief of her community. “I believe in setting my goals high because that gives me something to strive for. What I’ve realized attending school is you can choose what you want to be; the tough part is choosing the path to achieve that.” Likening Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake to a family, Sellars said students

come to learn and the faculty never lets them down. Even in the midst of a recent tragedy, where a nursing student died and another was injured, the university came together to offer the resources the students needed to cope with the situation. “I have made some incredibly bonding relationships here. I’m sure you all have. Because I did not have the needed support from my family, I create one wherever I go.” Each and every one should feel proud of their accomplishments and give themselves a pat on the back, she said. “Strive to be the very best that you can be and be determined to make a difference in the world, no matter how big or small it may be.”
