The Cariboo Regional District’s West Chilcotin Landfill share shed in Anahim Lake was burnt down Sunday, Aug. 5. The cause of the fire is not yet known. However, arson is suspected and surveillance camera data is currently being reviewed. Anyone with information on the fire is asked to contact the CRD’s solid waste management department at 250-392-3351 or toll free at 1-800-665-1636. Tips and information reported to the CRD will remain anonymous. The CRD says the abuse and vandalism of share sheds is increasing the maintenance and operating costs to taxpayers throughout the region.   The West Chilcotin Share Shed could be replaced, but the CRD needs feedback from community members that a new shed is desired. To provide comments, or for further information about the CRD’s Solid Waste Management program, call 1-800-665-1636, e-mail, or visit

Colby Hendrickson and local coroner Scott McLaughlin have fun spraying kids with water guns while getting bombed with water balloons back during the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake and District Street Party held Friday, Aug. 10 at the parking lot and alley in the 100 block of Fourth Avenue South.

Landslide repairs to cost $1M-plus Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The cost to repair a process line from the energy plant and a storm water line that were damaged by a slide in the river valley in April will be more than a million dollars, says the city’s acting chief administrative officer. Reporting to city council during a special committee of the whole meeting Aug. 7, Geoff Goodall explained the city will cover the cost of the process line, using surplus funds from the sewer budget, and the project should not cause any financial stress. However, the specific costs of the process line have not been determined.

Prior to the slide in April, the plan for replacing the process and storm water lines was slated for Phase 5 of a five-phase replacement project. However, the slide caused the city to switch priorities and do Phase 5 before completing Phase 3. “The one that does have some significant financial implications is the storm water project,” Goodall says. “We have been approved to use Phase 3 funding for Phase 5.” Phase 3 had a budget of $771,000, which is covered 100 per cent by a grant. Phase 5, however, will cost around $1.1 million, according to the engineers. “The concern is what kind of constraints this is going to put on council in the future. It would appear that

this project easily qualifies for community works funding,” Goodall explained. An additional $350,000 is available in unallocated funds, which means the city may not have to dip into general revenue surpluses to complete the project. “We will know more once the engineering design is completed,” Goodall said. Due to the nature of the project, it will be broken down into two stages — one for the process line and one for the storm water line. Goodall told council there have already been significant challenges with the process line. The piece that was under the river was plugged with sand and debris when the failure occurred, and ini-

tially the city was worried the cost of replacing it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. “In the old days you could just dig right through the river. You can’t do that anymore; you have to auger 10 metres below the river bed. We have since cleaned the old pipe and we’re preparing to do the pressure test on it to make sure that it’s competent. We’re hopeful that it is and we can use it.” There are some challenges augering from the landfill and coming down to the river. Geo-technical drilling is taking place to make sure the augering can be done. The project is still on track and the city is hoping to have it completed by the end of November, Goodall noted.

Panel visits proposed New Prosperity site A letter written by the chair of the federal review panel for the proposed New Prosperity gold-copper mine project near Williams Lake outlines a site visit made by the panel on July 12 and 13. In the letter, chair Bill Ross says the panel made the site visit with its secretariat and did not meet or interact with the proponent, Taseko Mines Limited, or with any registered parties during the tour. On July 12, the areas visited by the group included Lower Fish Creek at the intersection of Taseko Lake Road/White Water Road, the north shore of

Fish Lake, the proposed location of the southern part of the Open Pit and Big Onion Lake. Access roads viewed by the panel included Highway 20 from Williams Lake to Hanceville, Taseko Lake Road/White Water Road from Hanceville to Big Onion Lake,  4500 Road to close to the proposed location of the Access Road to the mine site, and Fish Lake Road to Fish Lake from Taseko Lake Road. On July 13, the panel conducted an aerial tour of the proposed project area via helicopter, making a number of ground stops at several

locations. Features and locations visited or viewed included the existing BC Transmission Line from Williams Lake to the proposed tie-in station at Dog Creek, the location of the tie-in station at Dog Creek, the entire route of the proposed transmission line and the location of its proposed crossing at the Fraser River.  They visited the location of the proposed open pit and water bodies in the project area including Fish Lake, Little Fish Lake/Nabas, Big Onion Lake, Wasp Lake, upper and lower Fish Creek, Beece Creek and the Taseko

River near the mine site. They also visited the location of the proposed main and south embankments of the tailings storage facility as marked by cut lines, Taseko Lake Lodge and the historical settlement at Y’anah Biny (Little Fish Lake).

Completing the tour, they drove from Williams Lake to the Gibraltar Mine concentrate load-out facility near Macalister, also on July 13. “This visit has greatly improved the panel’s and its secretariat’s understanding of the geography of the proj-

participants who provided comments and suggestions prior to the site visit.

City council starts to talk budgets Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer With summer more than halfway through, plans are percolating to make 2013’s city budget discussions strategic with direction. At an Aug. 7 special committee of the whole meeting, mayor and council shared some of those plans. “We want to have a provisional operational budget by Dec.1,” Mayor Kerry Cook said. Director of finance Pat Higgins confirmed it’s possible to meet that target; however, there

will be some necessary tweaking because capital projects could suddenly emerge, estimate revenues won’t be known, or other unexpected things could occur requiring a budget adjustment. “As long as we have a draft there, we won’t have to have a bylaw in place really until May 15 when it has to be adopted,” Higgins explained. Cook said she understood when other councils have a provisional budget in place by September, they still wait until the spring to put the bylaw in place.

Coun. Ivan Bonnell said until council can do a line-by-line review of the budget, he wouldn’t be able to determine service levels. See BUDGET Page A2 Leftovers from your Garage Sale?

Coming together to remember Greg Sabatino photo

Anglican Church’s Rev. Kris Dobyns, ministry developer, lights the candles of (from left) Pyara Singh Boyel, Daljit Saroya and Kulvinder Khakh Sunday evening during a candlelight vigil at City Hall held to remember the individuals killed in the Wisconsin Sikh Temple shooting July 29. The vigil was attended by roughly 80 people.

Budget sessions scheduled Continued From Page A2 “I don’t know how others expect to answer those questions without having that knowledge,” Bonnell said. Cook said if staff comes to council and explains rationale for new positions, staff will need to be prepared to restructure to find money to cover any new positions.

“That’s the type of direction that we could give, so we’re not saying no new positions, but we’re saying, yes that’s important, but it’s up to staff to figure out how they can make that work within the existing budget.” The clearer council is with direction at the beginning, the easier it will be for staff to plan, Cook said.

Coun. Geoff Bourdon said any increase comes in as a proposal on its own, with stated impacts. “It’s not about no increase of service, but about no increase to the operational budget,” Bourdon said. “That really is the bottom line of what we’re talking about.” Cook also pointed out that public input is an important priority to consider early and that

there is always room for improvement. “How we want the business plan and capital plan presented are things we need to discuss,” she said. A working session with city council and staff on budget discussions will take place Aug. 22 at 5:30 p.m. “We’re going to come out with a schedule and detailed priority of

what’s going to happen at each one of the meetings, how the public’s going to be involved,” Cook said. The city confirmed, under the Community Charter, the meeting will be closed because it will be to discuss municipal objectives, part of the annual report process. Council objectives will be made public at a later date. Ted Hlokoff photo

Siberian smoke

A smoky haze fills the air in Kleena Kleene Sunday evening. The smoke could also be seen in Williams Lake and in other areas of the Cariboo Monday. According to the Cariboo Fire Centre, the smoke is believed to be coming from Russia.

Unemployment rises in the Cariboo Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The unemployment rate for the Cariboo region has risen to 8.1 per cent in July, up from 7.8 per cent in June, according to Statistics Canada. With the exception of a 0.1 per cent dip in June, the unemployment rate has been increasing in the Cariboo since March, when it was 7.5 per cent. The rate is also up compared to the same time period in 2011 when the July unemployment rate in the Cariboo region was 7.5 per cent. Responding to the overall 14,500 loss of jobs in July for the province, Minister of Jobs, Tourism, and Innovation Pat Bell says it was news the provincial government did not want to hear. However, he suggested it is important to look at some of the details behind those statistics. “There were job gains in the full-time side of employment with a 9,600-person, full-time job gain. That was against a loss of 24,100 parttime jobs,” Bell says. The sector hit hardest was education, which was down 11,000 jobs. Bell suggested that was anticipated, given the time of year and the layoffs in public and private education systems. “Last year we saw significant job growth in the educational services sector in the month of September

and I’m confident we’ll see that again this year,” he says. Year over year numbers, compared to July 2011, show the province is up by 33,400 jobs, representing about a quarter of all of the job gains across Canada. “That puts us in third behind only Alberta and Ontario for that same period of time. The employment picture over the longer range is still very stable,” Bell says, adding “good” job growth continues in the areas of mining, forestry, natural gas and professional services. The minister says he is concerned about the decline of jobs in the food services and accommodation sector, which saw a loss of 2,300 positions. “That is really bucking a trend of what we should see at this time of year and we will be looking more closely at that area to determine what is causing that and what we can do to mitigate or ensure that area starts to grow again.” The recent stats also reveal that youth employment is on the decrease across the country. There was growth a few months ago, but that growth has been offset by recent decline. Their employment rate was 29 per cent, the lowest on record, with the unemployment rate being 31.2 per cent, the highest ever posted for the 15and 16-year-old age group.

Barker Minerals finds minerals Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Recent drilling by Barker Minerals Ltd. at its Black Bear silver/ gold project has resulted in some exciting news, said the company’s media spokesperson Robert H. Kuhl. Two drill holes — one 90 metres, the other 310 metres — have revealed consistently present gold pathfinders at the project site located 74 kilometres northeast of Williams Lake. “We took over 500 samples on the second hole, hole number seven, every 0.3 metres, and the pathfinder minerals were there as well as gold showing,” Kuhl told the Tribune. In a press release issued last week, Barker Minerals noted the top 90 metres of both drill holes were similar geologically and geochemically in alteration style and associated mineralization. “The alteration patterns are typical of an epithermal system, which is also significant, because it means it’s also near the surface. The alteration pattern carries on right to the bottom of hole 7 and it’s still open at depth.

Who knows how far it goes down? We stopped at 310 metres,” Kuhl explained. In the first hole — BB12-06 — the alteration patterns were pyrite, fuschite, calcite, sericite and silica. Identified gold pathfinder minerals were bismuth, arsenic, antimony, cadmium, tin, mercury and selenium. “A few narrow veins up to 0.49 metres in thickness occur with variable amounts of galena, pyrite and lesser amounts of molybdenum mineralization,” the press release noted. The second hole — BB12-07 — has alternating zones of argillite/ mudstones and felsic rocks from surface up to 145 metres. Alteration patterns in the second hole consist of pyrite, fuschite, calcite, carbonate, sericite, bioitite, hematite, epidote, silica and magnetite. There are a host of other minerals present, which Kuhl described as a “kitchen sink” of pathfinder minerals. “We’re very, very excited. What we need to do is drill more holes to see how extensive this mineralization is and whether

the patterns keep repeating themselves.” What’s interesting, he added, is that Barkerville Gold, with its nearby project, has recently announced an indicated resource of almost 11 million ounces, and Spanish Mountain Gold announced an indicated resource, also in proximity of the Black Bear Project.

“This is all interesting information and it’s going to draw people’s attention to the area. You could look at this as competition, but it really isn’t, because the more focus there is on this area the better it is for the economy of the whole area, whether it’s Quesnel, Williams Lake, Prince George or the whole area. It really bodes well.”

NEWS Several vehicles stolen over the weekend Williams Lake RCMP responded to 80 calls over the weekend, several of them involving stolen vehicles. The first occurred around 6:42 a.m. on Aug. 9 when police responded to a complaint of a theft of a Dodge

pickup truck from the Wildwood area, stolen some time during the night from the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driveway. There were no suspects or witnesses to the theft and no evidence. The vehicle was later located on Frizzi Road near the

river bottom trail, with extensive damage to it. An hour later, at 7:40 a.m., police responded to a report of two stolen vehicles on Frizzi Road, after receiving reports of a possible collision. One of the vehicles

was on its side on Frizzi Road with the ignition punched out. The owner stated that he had last seen the vehicle the previous night. At 8:07 a.m. police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle Greg Sabatino photo

from the 168 Mile Road area.  The vehicle was a white 1996 Dodge pickup that had been stolen sometime overnight. This vehicle was later recovered on Allen Road. A fourth stolen vehicle complaint came in at 9:42 a.m. Police responded to a report of a stolen black Dodge Dakota pickup that had been taken from  the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home sometime overnight.  The vehicle was later located in the parking lot of Marshals 150 Mile Store. On Aug. 11 at 1:15 a.m. police responded to a report of a  blue 1992 Jeep Cherokee being stolen overnight.   The owner  found the vehicle gone  in

the morning. Broken glass was found. The Jeep had large off-road tires and a roof rack.  A witness  told police the jeep was last seen being driven away around midnight.   In all of the vehicle thefts police say there are no suspects at this time and all matters are still under investigation. The RCMP also received a complaint on Aug. 11 that a quantity of fishing gear and gas had been stolen from a dock on Horsefly Lake Landing.  No suspects have been identified in the theft at this time. On Aug. 12 at 5:14 a.m. a residence alarm went off on Litzenburg Crescent. Police attended to find that the

exterior window by the kitchen was open, with the screen removed. The alarm company confirmed the location of the intrusion in the residence.   Police were unable to determine if anything was stolen during the break-in. The matter is still under investigation.  Due to the spike in auto theft over the weekend, the RCMP say members will once again focus on areas and suspects associated to these thefts.  Anyone who observes any suspicious activity or has information concerning any thefts of auto or any other crimes is encouraged to call the Williams Lake RCMP detachment or Crimestoppers.

these workers, which means that local businesses and services will greatly benefit from an increase in regional spending.

For our part, we are proud to be contributing to the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic growth and stability through our pursuit of sustainable, longterm projects that generate well-paying jobs.

As we complete our final phase of Gibraltarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $700 million revitalization this year, 170 new full-time jobs will be created, bringing the total workforce to over 700. Plus, when you consider that for every 1 job that exists at Gibraltar an additional 3 jobs are created elsewhere in BC, the depth of our ability to generate opportunities in the region is proven.

Over the course of the mineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anticipated 20-year lifespan, it will generate 71,000 jobs as a result of its contribution to BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy in the form of Real GDP. These are high paying, long-term jobs. In that same time period, the population of BC rises by 5,400 as new opportunities elsewhere in the economy open up due to the project.

The Gibraltar story is just the beginning. Taseko has been working to bring to life the New Prosperity GoldCopper Project with a view to stimulating even greater job growth.

The New Prosperity Project represents an unprecedented opportunity for the Cariboo. But it needs your support to become a reality. Add your voice to the discussion around the project and let our government know the region supports New Prosperity.

Take the Gibraltar Mine for example: During the early revitalization phase of Gibraltar that has spanned the last 5 years, an additional 3 jobs were created in the province of BC for every 1 job directly created by the mine. When Taseko purchased Gibraltar in 1999, the operation was not running due primarily to low copper prices. The place was uneconomic to run and faced permanent closure. There were just 10 employees keeping Gibraltar on â&#x20AC;&#x153;care and maintenanceâ&#x20AC;?. Today, because of new investment Advertisement

At the height of New Prosperityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction phase, the project will employ over 1,000 workers. We will develop an onsite camp to accommodate

Olympic and royal medals

Priority and responsibility


odayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sermon is about the dog park in Boitanio Park and the beach at Scout Island. This is not about the Nature Centre, one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major assets. This is about the beach, which is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s o n l y French public Connection access to the Diana French lake. How m a n y cities have a lake on their doorstep? At least two generations of Williams Lakers have happy memories of the beach. It used to be a fun place. The sand was clean, there was a big lilac bush (city emblem) for shade, and the city cleared the weeds from the immediate swimming area. (Is that a no no now?) Today the sand is littered with bird kaka (complete with flies). The lilac bush is gone, the weeds are not. Some say those who want to use the beach should rake up the poop themselves, and it looks like some do, but why should they? The beach, picnic area and boat launch are the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility. Nobody expects volunteers to maintain other city parks or public facilities. After hearing of complaints, I took my youngest grandgirls to check it out last week. There were little huddles of people, maybe three dozen, mostly children, in or by the water during three hours on Friday, maybe a dozen on Saturday. We took a picnic supper Sunday, different crowd, not many, mostly adults. Each day there were a number of people walking dogs, but not on the beach. So what does this have to do with the dog park? Although neither the dog park nor the beach are on any community priority list, the city found money for the dog park. How come? The only reason I can see is that the dog park proponents have a champion on city council. More on this in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column. Â Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune.

Our Viewpoint

Olympics much-needed spectacle In a world where there is often precious little to celebrate, where citizens must die for democracy, people are gunned down in a movie theatre and countless other acts leave us saddened, disheartened or just plain cynical, every two years a spectacle takes place that breathes life back into the human spirit. The Olympic Games are a two-week celebration of youth, goodwill and ultimate effort. A glimpse, perhaps, into the lighter side, the better side, of the human condition. The Olympics are a spectacle where failure doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t result in civil war or poverty, but only an acknowledgement that more work is required. To lose leaves little consequence; we simply move on to the next event and hope. Nanoose Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high jump effort came up just short of the bronze medal. Simon Whitfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crash in triathlon and the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss in soccer to the U.S. left us disappointed.

But to win leaves us punching the air in celebration, with lumps in our throat as our national anthem plays. We see the joy and understanding in the athlete at the top of the podium, having carried an entire nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopes on their shoulders and succeeded. To have so much sacrifice pay off. That is what we celebrate. And while every Olympics has its shortfalls, corporate sponsorships and huge investment in venues, the price is worth it. For two weeks, the world converges in one place without politics, religion or greed. For two weeks, we get a glimpse of a world without borders. As the 2012 London Olympics drew to a close, and as the Olympic Flame was once again extinguished, we can look back and pocket the moments of inspiration, learn from the failures and embrace the human race. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nanaimo News Bulletin

Ship salvage Dog park group a grass-roots initiative should start from the top Editor:

Editor:  Nobody is asking, and raising the sunken liner Costa Concordia is of little importance to the people of Williams Lake, but if I were asked this is how I would do it. First I would view the Costa Concordia not as a giant, somewhat hollow vessel lying on the seabed; I would view the vessel as a unit with hundreds of cells, the cells being, of course, the empty rooms. Most salvage companies will be looking to lay straps under the vessel and then attach inflatable air bags to these straps, inflating these bags, until the ship rises off the bottom sufficiently to be able to tow the vessel to some shore repair facility. There is no question that this system will probably work fine. The major problem with this kind of work is that the divers have to work in a deep and dangerous environment, and if the vessel is not secured properly it could of course accidentally slip into deeper water. I, on the other hand, would start my salvage operation from the top of the ship. I would start by putting inflatable airbags in the above water room/ cells. I would start here to ensure that as I inflated air bags in the rooms/cells below the surface that my ship would come up slowly rotating and floating to the level. My divers would not have to work in depths much below nine meters as they installed inflatable airbags in the sunken room/cells. The airbags in the above water level room/cells would have been inflated in advance of the start of inflating the airbags in the room/cells below the surface. Having secured and anchored my ship to shore, I believe that my method of displacing water in the room/cells with airbags in those sunken cells and advancing these airbags deeper into the ship as the ship rose I would be able to slowly lift the ship, far safer for both men and machinery than exterior airbags can do it. Un-inflated neutral buoyancy air bag packages of about two thirds a metre by two thirds a metre by two metres long could be placed in individual room/ cells connected to an air distribution system and then inflated. The ship unencumbered with exterior airbags, now floating with inflated airbags in the individual room/cells, could then be safely towed to dry dock.   Doug Wilson Williams Lake


I am respectfully responding to the recent article in the Tribune about the Williams Lake OffLeash Dog Park. In the article David Reedman questions how the decision was made and the amount of money spent on the Dog Park. With other projects listed as a priority he questioned how a dog park got the green light. This letter states my opinion in a democracy where we have freedom to publicly express our own opinions and views. As in other communities, there are various user groups utilizing city parks and financial resourc-

es. While priorities are identified in various relevant Community Plans, fortunately small emerging projects that move the community forward are not precluded. Community plans are guidelines and not dictums that are set in stone. Any effective and responsive Plan is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;living documentâ&#x20AC;? able to evolve as new information and priorities come to light. City council is free to utilize existing committees such as the Central Cariboo Recreational Advisory Committee (CCRAC) or to strike independent advisory committees as needed. As the CCRAC has no decision making

power and their energies are currently focused on the Pool Feasibility Study Project perhaps a Dog Park Advisory Committee comprised of informed and dedicated citizens was a practical way to proceed. The Williams Lake Off-Leash Dog Park was created in response to a local grass roots initiative and reflective of a trend sweeping across North America. It is a partnership between the City of Williams Lake and a particular user group. A similar process may have been followed during the development of the existing skateboard park and the bike park already located in Boitanio Park.

While the city has contributed $15,000 for fencing, the Dog Park Committee is currently fund raising for benches, irrigation, signage, promotional materials, etc. and aiming for a reciprocal contribution of $10,000 to $15,000. When signage is in place the committee will make arrangements for the grand opening. I close with a quote from Mahatma Gandhi: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.â&#x20AC;? Valerie Thiessen Dog Park Committee member Williams Lake

Not all exotic facilities contribute to human trafficking by default Editor: Â Whilst I wholeheartedly concur with Dina Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest to eradicate human trafficking as well as the involvement of minors in the sex trade, I disagree with her all-encompassing analogy that strip clubs, massage parlours and prostitution necessarily involve

human trafficking or minors. I object to the insinuation that owners and patrons of strip clubs or other â&#x20AC;&#x153;exoticâ&#x20AC;? entertainment facilities contribute to human trafficking by default. Such an analogy is patently unfair toward strip clubs and their customers. Strip clubs are, by far, harmless entertainment, and, on most days,

couples seem to be the prevailing attendees. Perhaps Kennedy should attend our local establishment (run entirely by female management) and speak with some of the dancers, where she will quickly hear that the performers are there of their own volition. Human trafficking, as well as the involvement of minors in strip

clubs, are not only crimes in this country; they are completely reprehensible acts to which no one should contribute. Watching consenting and un-coerced adults strip for money is not a crime, nor is it reprehensible. Â Bernd Eisele Williams Lake

Verbeeck raises $1,200 in swim across lake Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer It was tougher than he anticipated, but Williams Lake’s Patrick Verbeeck didn’t let that slow him down in his quest to swim across Williams Lake over the B.C. Day long weekend. Verbeeck, who graduated from Columneetza secondary this past June and was a longtime member of the Williams Lake Blue Fins Swim Club, swam seven kilometres beginning at Russet Bluff

and ending at Scout Island in Williams Lake to raise funds for cancer research. “It was pretty tiring, that’s for sure,” Verbeeck said. “When I got out of the water I was really tired. It was more difficult than I thought.” Prior to the swim, which he labelled Strokes for Life, Verbeeck collected pledges and donations, raising about $1,200 — more than his original goal of $1,000. He said he originally came up with the

idea after some of his friends had been affected by cancer. He donated the money to the Canadian Cancer Society. “It was pretty great,” he said of the support he received. “When I was done a few people came over to congratulate me.” Following alongside Verbeeck was a kayaker and a canoeist, ensuring his swim was as safe as possible. He added he might make the event an annual occurrence, but hasn’t thought too far

into it. “It’s possible,” he said of the idea. “[If I did it again] anyone could join in.”

Kids Running For Kids to be recognized at Performances in the Park barbecue On June 30, approximately 70 local young people, who formed Kids Running For Kids, began a relay run from Williams Lake to Vancouver, with the goal of raising $50,000 for B.C. Children’s Hospital. The group arrived in Vancouver on July 7 and presented a cheque for $77,726.47 to the Hospital Foundation. Kids Running For Kids is still gratefully accepting donations, and is looking to raise $100,000. “We are incredibly proud of these amazing young people, who have worked hard for months even before starting their run to help other kids who may need to use the Children’s Hospital,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “We want to honour their hard work and commitment and help them raise even more money for the hospital. We invite everyone to come to Boitanio Park, have a hot dog, enjoy the live music, meet the inspi-

rational members of the group, and make a donation — every little bit will go a long way.” “We are so proud of this group of children and their families,” says Karen Sokolan, treasurer of Kids Running For Kids. “Collectively they ran approximately 4,000 kilometres in communities from Williams Lake to Vancouver. They trained for months beforehand and then ran, ate, camped and travelled together for eight days and kept

smiling through it all. Many times we, as parents, were told what terrific ambassadors the children were.” Beth Holden, who organized this year’s Performances in the Park concert series, says she’s looking forward to it. “I’m excited that Performances in the Park can help recognize these kids in front of the community, and celebrate their amazing accomplishments,” Holden says. Any donations made at the barbecue or be-

fore Aug. 26 will be matched by the CN Miracle Match program. Mayor and council will present each Kids Running For Kids participant a Certificate of Appreciation at the Aug. 16 event. Stephen Forgacs, director of communications for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, will be on hand to thank the children and award then a certificate. Sponsors of the relay run are also encouraged to attend.

Archers to represent Canada at worlds Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake archers Al Campsall and Fred Streleoff were both named last Thursday to represent Canada at the upcoming World Championships in Italy in October 2013. The pair of Cariboo Archers recently participated for Team BC

over the B.C. Day long weekend at the Canadian 3D Archery Championships at Silver Star Mountain near Vernon, both winning in their respective divisions. Campsall finished first in the Masters Compound Open division and Streleoff took first in the Instinctive Recurve division, both impressing Canadian

team brass enough to earn their spots on the world championship team. The duo participated with close to 300 of the best archers in Canada. Campsall won his division by 28 points to claim his eighth Canadian championship. Meanwhile, Streleoff dominated his category by more than 100

points. “Conditions were oppressively hot, the terrain was mountainous and the shots were challenging on all three days of competition,” Campsall said. Now, they will both have the opportunity to compete against the world’s best. For more see a future Tribune.

Hockey legend Bobby Hull (left) was added to the honour roll as a Canadian Hereford Breeder of Distinction recently in Alberta. Tribune columnist and photographer Liz Twan was there to record the occasion.

Hull an unlikely breed Liz Twan Special to The Tribune While he may be much more well-known to Cariboo hockey fans for his hockey prowess, records and achievements in a distinguished NHL career (playing for the Winnipeg Jets, Hartford Whalers and Chicago Blackhawks; both Hawks/Jets retired his No. 9 jersey), Bobby Hull is also well-known in the beef cattle industry as a long-time Hereford cattle/breeder. In July he was in Olds, Alta. to be recognized by the Canadian Hereford Association at the World Hereford Conference, as he was added to their honour roll as a Cana-

dian Hereford Breeder of Distinction. The hockey legend was there in person to accept the beautiful keeper trophy, presented by Canadian Hereford Association President Randy Radau (Coulee Crest Herefords, Bowden, Alta.) As he accepted the award, Hull indicated that the award was much appreciated and the receipt of it ranked right up there among the hockey tributes/accolades. Hull spoke about his early life (before hockey) in a small Ontario town, the eldest child in a family with 11 children, jokingly stating, “I never slept alone until after I was married!”

While his long career in hockey is widely recognized and well-documented, his involvement in the Hereford cattle industry has not been afforded the same coverage although “the Golden Jet” has been a Hereford breeder since 1959, a span of time lasting considerably longer than his illustrious hockey career. But fame in one field doesn’t necessarily translate to notoriety in another, a fact aptly illustrated the next morning as I met, then conversed, with an American couple (husband/wife/ranchers from Oklahoma). We discussed the conference in general, then the dinner the previous

evening when they mentioned they had been seated at Hull’s table at the banquet. They were genuinely puzzled by his apparent “star status” and asked several questions about Hull (do you know who he is, what made him famous?) as they were completely unaware of his legendary standing in the annals of hockeyhistory in Canada and the U.S. After the award presentation, two Chicago “Hull-9” hockey jerseys were auctioned (to be signed, on the spot by Hull) with the proceeds (each sold for $2,000 plus) going to the Hereford Association’s Bonanza Fund.

CDC hosts art exhibit in Spirit Square Thursday The Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre in Williams Lake is introducing a new element to the 2012 Art Walk in the lakecity this week â&#x20AC;&#x201D; childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art. On Thursday, Aug. 16, the CDC is hosting an event in Spirit Square from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. that will include childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art activities, a barbecue with entertainment and an art exhibit and silent auction of art by children in the CDC preschool. The art exhibit and silent auction runs from 11 a.m. to noon, the barbecue from noon to 1 p.m., and art activities for children from 1 to 2 p.m. The silent auction will feature self portraits created earlier this year by the preschoolers. The purpose of the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art event is to help fund new programming at the CDC preschool this fall and promote the importance of early learning and creativity as factors that enhance a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success in life. Funds raised by the art auction will help to offset the costs of art materials and resources for the new program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the fact that Art Walk provides a community event coordinated in the downtown area,â&#x20AC;? says Nancy Gale, CDC executive director and a Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area Association board member, in introducing the event in the art walk passport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It reminds local residents that the downtown area is a place where the community can celebrate local artists and enjoy an event featuring childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art, music and family friendly activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also reminds us that the down-

Young as they are a great deal of creativity and enthusiasm for art is evident in these portraits drawn by preschoolers that will be part of the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art exhibit in Spirit Square this Thursday. There will also be a fundraising art auction and art activities for children. town area is a place where you can dine, shop and park near locallyowned boutique-style stores.â&#x20AC;? She says the CDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new programming will focus on the development of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social-emotional skills, often referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;learning to learnâ&#x20AC;? skills. These skills include self-regulation, persistence, social competence and emotional maturity.

Creative behaviour typically involves having original ideas or unusual ideas that bear some relationship to authentic situations, or goals; and planning, thinking through and sustaining the ideas until an outcome occurs. In the self portraits being presented children have used art materials as tools to represent themselves and their world as they see it.

Pledge sheets for the CDC project will be available at the event and afterward at the CDC office on Fourth Avenue and at the WLCBIA office at the corner of Third Avenue and Oliver Street. Silent auction bidding on the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art will continue until Aug. 31. For more information contact the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre at 250-392-4489.

Starting on Thursday, Aug. 16, the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Contact Society will offer a new, free fitness program with a licenced Zumba instructor. Classes will be on Mondays from 3 to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.  at the contact centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board room. To register call 250-392-4118. Drop-ins are welcome; however, limited space is available.

Sam Tudor releases second album Animals and Arson Sage Birchwater photo

Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune Seventeen-year-old valedictorian of Williams Lake Secondary School, Sam Tudor, already speaks of his high school experience in the past tense. This fall he is off to new challenges at UBC, to study film making and philosophy. Tucked into his pocket is an album he cut earlier this year called Animals and Arson. Despite his tender years this is Tudorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second album. Last year he produced Snail Mail, a collection of songs recorded in a six-footby-six-foot closet at WLSS. He says it was more a collection of songs not tied together cohesively.

Sam Tudor performs at the Arts on the Fly festival in Horsefly earlier this summer. Tudor recently released his second album Animals and Arson, following last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of Snail Mail.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like a complete album, so I decided to take more time with Animals and Arson to make something that was more whole.â&#x20AC;? Tudor says he really

liked the feel of recording in the intimate environment of the high school closet. His school received some arts funding for microphones, which helped him record a second

album. He returned to the closet with better equipment and more resolve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would go into that room and just put down one layer on top of another until I felt a

song was finished,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d move on to the next.â&#x20AC;? He began recording in late February and worked in a series of short, concentrated periods over a three-month span. He released the album in mid-June. Two school pals Rowan Dolighan and Kylie Gill were integral to the recording, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rowan and I play music and perform together a lot. Our merging styles help make this album unique.â&#x20AC;? He says he and Gill wrote the song, Alice and the Trail, for their schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical production of Alice in Wonderland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kylie played the caterpillar on narcotics giving useful advice to Alice. We decided to put it on the album

Other local musicians on the album include Chelsea Goddard (trumpet), Brianne de Verteuil (saxophone), Howard Tallman (mandolin) and Jenny Howell (violin). Tudor credits music teachers and mentors Dena Baumann and Brent Morton for inspiring him and giving him space at the school to create his own music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brianne Deverteuil continued that this year by working my album into the

Sam Tudor, Marin Patenaude, and Drum & Bell Tower perform at 5 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. to close out this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Performances in the Park series, organized by the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society. On June 30, approximately 70 local young people, who formed Kids Running For Kids, began a relay run from Williams Lake to Vancouver, with the goal of raising $50,000 for B.C. Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital. The group arrived in Vancouver on July 7, and presented a cheque for $77,726.47 to the Hospital Foundation. Kids Running for Kids is still gratefully accepting donations, and is looking to reach $100,000 raised. Any donations made at the barbecue or before August 26 will be matched by the CN Miracle Match program. Mayor and Council will present each Kids Running For Kids participant a Certificate of Appreciation at the Aug. 16 event. Stephen Forgacs, Director of Communications for the BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Foundation, will be on hand to thank the children and award them a certificate. Sponsors of the relay run are also encouraged to attend.

community DFO cutbacks worry Show Horsefly River round table spurs

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 Williams Lake Tribune


Bruce MacLeod Special to The Tribune Horsefly River Roundtable report for the July 19, 2012 meeting: I will attend to housekeeping first: I made an error in reference to Gordon Sterritt in my last round table report. I referred to him as the head of the NSTC, when in fact he is head of the NSTC fisheries resources department since 2005. Joan Sorely, Cariboo Regional District Area F director, was a guest at our July 19 meeting and reported what she knew regarding the bass situation in the Beaver Lakes. There have been no more reports of bass in Big Lake. Judy Hillaby, Department of Fisheries and Oceans representative to the roundtable, stated that the bass are a long, drawn-out process of domination, and are pretty well here for the duration. It is a decadelong problem. No one in the room was in favour of using poison to kill everything in the Beaver Lakes and then start over again. The thought is that poison is simply too outrageous, and there is no funding for anything right now. The CRD trail project was discussed and it was decided to stockpile as much conveyor belting that we get from Gibraltar Mine as we could get before making a decision on how to

utilize it all, and it was decided to go ahead and design and install a gate at the spawning channel crossing to prevent dirt bikes from accessing the Salmon Walk. DFO has approved cementing (spreading a layer of cement powder over a well-packed gravel trail) for parts of the trail where it can be utilized to the best advantage. The gravel trail is probably fine as long as the dirt bikers stay off it. We need some parental supervision on the culprits who are causing us so much grief. The Salmon Festival was discussed inasmuch as all systems are going full speed. Michael Strauch has updated our web site ( to be more recent and up to date. Jacinda Mack has assured us there will be a salmon drying/smoking rack on display in action as well as the NSTC informational table, so we are pleased to have First Nations participation on the Labour Day weekend. Thanks were extended to Randy Grosse for his help in the campground across the river. Grosse installed our portable accessible washroom/outhouse for us. I read a communica-

tion from Pharis Patenaude (Arts on the Fly) regarding future plans for clean-up after festivals as well as security to prevent people accessing riparian areas with their campers. Several roundtable members expressed a willingness to volunteer for the park clean up next year to help Arts on the Fly. DFO cutbacks were briefly discussed. The Quesnel office is shutting down. DFO staff expects that the cutting is not over, as some field offices are being closed completely and many  staff members are affected.  Some are considering early retirement. There is much concern at the roundtable regarding the habitat protection, bill C-38, DFO layoffs, etc. The whole situation is alarming in light of the latest study over a 30-year period revealed that the survival rate of sockeye has dwindled from 20 to four per spawning female. In numerical terms that is four fry return to the ocean per every 2,500 to 3,000 eggs. Roy Argue will be hosting an interpretive walk for the local population and anyone else who wishes to learn, along the salmon trail sometime in the future,

and in advance of the Salmon Festival. This will be very interesting, and posters will be posted and phone calls made when we know the exact date. The roundtable is actively seeking funds to repair the Woodjam Creek before it gets any worse, but have had no luck to date. In the last report I stated the cost was about $70,000 when in fact it is closer to $80,000. Still, a small amount when you consider the benefits. The next roundtable meeting is on Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Horsefly Library.
