A unanimously endorsed report was released by the Special Legislative Committee on Timber Supply Wednesday morning, followed by a press conference with the committee’s chair MLA John Rustad. The report’s 22 recommendations range from ensuring the province meets its legal consultation duty and any required accommodations with First Nations, to the province funding the preparation of a five-year provincial inventory action plan. It also recommends finding ways to grow more fibre and maximize its value by utilizing economic stands and/or investing in fertilization, as well as increasing the type of form of area-based tenures to support enhanced levels of forest stewardship and private sector investment. “We heard very clearly from First Nations that they would like to participate within the forest industry. There seems to be a desire and appreciation for the new woodland forest tenures for First Nations,” Rustad said, adding the committee is not recommending a take-back of tenure from existing companies. “One of the mandates we were given is that we could not have a significant financial impact on the province. A take-back would have had a significant financial impact on the province so it wasn’t a place that we could go, plus the amount of uncertainty that would bring across the area to industry.” Rustad told reporters he believes the largest significant recommendation going forward from the report is around marginally economic stands.

Williams Lake AAC may stay the same for 15-20 years Continued From Page A1 “That’s where the greatest opportunity is in terms of the future for mitigating some of that mid-term timber supply. There’s a tremendous amount of opportunity to partition that out to see if companies would like to and can operate in those areas to achieve fibre.” In the report the committee calls on the chief forester to examine the potential of marginally economic forests to determine harvest opportunities. It is estimated the pine beetle epidemic has killed 53 per cent of the pine throughout the impacted areas. “That’s estimated to continue over the next few decades, at a lower pace, to be somewhere between 53 and 70 per cent. Most analysts now are thinking that it will be closer to around 57 per cent when all is said and done,” Rustad said. As a result, if no

changes to forestry are made going forward, close to 10 million cubic metres of annual allowable cut will be lost in the next 10 to 20 years in pine-beetle impacted areas. When asked about possible resulting mill closures, Rustad said that amount is enough to supply eight reasonably sized sawmills. “I do want to emphasize that in the Williams Lake area the reduction in the annual allowable cut may not be for another 15 or 20 years,” Rustad said. The committee visited 15 communities and met in Vancouver for three days to hear from communities, including 22 First Nations groups. “To date it was one of the more significant committees engaging in discussion with First Nations on such an important topic, such as timber supply,” Rustad said, adding there were 650 presentations of written or oral nature submitted. Rustad voiced opti-

mism about the future of forestry in the province and the focus to grow more fibre and achieve more value from that fibre through intensive silviculture and what could be done through a gradual shift in the types of tenures on the land base. “All of that has led me to be fairly optimistic. There will be some changes, but I think the changes we’ll see over the next decade in the forest industry will be of a more positive nature.” Cariboo Chilcotin Liberal MLA Donna Barnett agreed saying the report includes recommendations that will help growth and yield. “The report is universal and encompasses all the TSAs.The only one that was singled out was the Burns Lake and the fire up there and how trying to move that community forward is urgent.” One of the things Barnett thinks is significant in the report is the recommendation to respect existing land-

use plans. If land-use plans are going to be reviewed they have to be reviewed with consultation, she said. “I think it’s important that the minister do his assessment as quick as possible and have the land-use consultation processes back in place as soon as possible. I personally believe a lot of the problems are created in our resource industries because of lack of consultation. More consultation with communities will result in better understanding.” Barnett said she’s pleased with the report. “I think we addressed the concerns and our terms of reference. It was an all-party committee of the opposition and the government that worked together to come up with best recommendations for the pine beetle communities in the province.” To access the full report visit http://www.

Internet voting considered Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Reacting to news that her government has officially requested chief electoral officer Keith Archer examine the potential for using Internet voting in B.C., Cariboo Chilcotin Liberal MLA Donna Barnett says there are some things that need to be ironed out. “Most people I’ve talked to have said it’s very important to go to the polls and vote like they always have,” Barnett says. “It’s a democratic right they want to keep. Others have said they are very interested in electronic voting, but there are many issues that have to be ironed out in my mind.” Those issues include security, cost-effectiveness, and how it will affect people living in rural communities that have no access to Internet. “There are a lot of places that have no Internet yet. We have a lot of people that do not use computers, so that’s a concern.” In a letter, Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond requested Archer to appoint an independent panel to review the best practices for Internet voting from other jurisdictions. Barnett says it’s interesting that the minister has put the request out there and she’s anxious to see how much public consultation takes place and what the panel comes up with. “I think there are a lot of things that have

to be taken into consideration. You would have to take a model of Internet voting, and how it was developed, and have a trial run,” Barnett says, adding she anticipates it will take a while. Williams Lake city councillor Geoff Bourdon applauds the order in which the government is approaching Internet voting, by looking at the pros and the cons. “Especially with anything electronic, the biggest thing that people want to know is that it’s secure. I think it’s a good idea because our voting system and the way we do public interaction with politics is extremely dated. It needs to come into the 21st century and this is a good way to have that done,” Bourdon says. Some people won’t like the idea, he suggests, adding there will be those who do want the option. “People are still going to be able to go out and vote however they want, and in person, so I think it’s a great idea.” While the Cariboo Regional District board hasn’t had a chance to discuss Internet voting, chair Al Richmond says elected officials support anything that will gain greater involvement in the election process. “We’ll look forward to the report, which we assume will outline how they are going to protect the integrity of the electoral process.

Rescued grizzly bear at zoo since 1999 Greater Vancouver Zoo photo

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A grizzly bear found abandoned at a Cariboo landfill in 1999 continues to thrive at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove. The zoo received Shadow in the winter of 1999 after she was rescued by conservation officers. At the time, she was roughly a year old and had been left by her mother and siblings to fend for herself at a landfil, where she had been surviving on garbage for about two weeks. Marketing and communications manager Jody Henderson says Shadow is the zoo’s only grizzly bear and has always been a real draw. Alternatively she would have been eutha-

nized because of her habituation to the landfill. Instead she was brought to the zoo for education purposes. Henderson guesses Shadow was probably the runt of the litter, which was probably why she was abandoned. Today she weighs

around 270 pounds. Henderson says her habitat consists of a 1.5-acre enclosure, with various berry bushes, lots of trees, a pond and several dens. It’s the size of football field and as natural as possible for a captive environment. In addition to the ber-

ries, she also eats salmon once in a while, fruits and vegetables. “She’s a bit of a diva,” Henderson says. “She likes to get up later in the morning. She’s super intelligent and plays non-stop. She’s a real ham in front of the camera so there

have been lots of videos and pictures taken of her over the years.” Henderson says Shadow will pick things up and balance them on her head or nose, or throw things up in the air. See SHADOW Page A4

Shadow a ‘diva’ Continued From Page A3 “I’ve seen her several times doing somersaults down the hill. She has a super big personality. She’s not keen on construction around her and any kind of machinery agitates her.” Every time zoo staff does work around her Shadow becomes frustrated. “Several years ago we went into her enclosure to clean it out; we do that every so often to cut some trees and move things around. She was in her holding pen while we were doing this and immediately when we were finished and she was back on her own, I remember her putting everything back to where it was before. She has a place for everything. She’s very fun that way and very particular.” Henderson describes Shadow’s personality as big and says it’s apparent she knows her keepers and employees at the

zoo. “She very much reacts to our calling or being around her.” To observe Shadow, staff and the public stand on an observation deck above her enclosure. “This past week we opened up another area we revamped near her enclosure in the North American section. There used to be a bus that would go through a series of gates in that section and she was in the front, but we’ve eliminated the buses because we want it to be better for the animals and the environment.” Now there’s more of a walk-through area where observers can access the view of half of Shadow’s enclosure, as opposed to only a quarter, which was what the access was before the changes. “She is getting lots of enrichment now from the one long side where people can walk along. The kids are pretty excited to see her from there

when she’s on that side and she’s been enjoying all the attention.” Shadow is quiet but very busy. It’s not cold enough in the Lower Mainland for more than what Henderson calls semi-hibernation, when Shadow becomes less active and eats less during a period of time. “She dug a pretty serious den last year. She had one already, but she dug another one and spent hours working on it.” In the wild, grizzly bears live around 25 years, with the longest recorded wild grizzly living 34 years. In captivity, the longest recorded grizzly lived to 47 years of age. At the rate Shadow is going it’s anticipated she’ll live to 25 to 35 years of age in her captive environment. “She was brought here to live out her life. She has great people taking care of her, a wonderful vet, and all

Gov’ts interested Continued From Page A2 “It’s great to have the opportunity for electronic voting in some form, but we have to ensure that the integrity of the process remains intact,” Richmond says, adding the privacy of the voting process also needs to be protected. In a press released issued by the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Community Sport, and

Cultural Development on Aug. 9, Bond says the province is widely recognized as being technologically progressive and a leader in open government initiatives. “If the independent panel determines we can maintain the utmost electoral integrity, I’m optimistic Internet voting could increase accessibility for British Columbians to participate in the democratic

process,” Bond states. Weighing in Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Ida Chong says several governments have expressed eagerness to adopt Internet voting as a way to increase voter turnout and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities has supported them. “We will look forward to receiving the independent panel’s report,” Chong adds.

that good stuff. She has good meals and doesn’t have to do much.” Henderson notes over the years the zoo has taken in a number of animals. “Conservation organizations and offices will call us when they’ve

found an animal to see if a zoo can take them and save them,” she says. The North American section also features black bears, coyotes, cougars, bison, Roosevelt Elk, reindeer, and three injured bald eagles.

Instead of expending energy managing the fall-out from negative news and outdated perceptions, we're working to develop a strong placebrand for Williams Lake — something that has never really been done here. This is one way to help take control of our economic future and promote the quality of life we all enjoy.

PULL OVER FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLES Recent incidents involving emergency vehicles have prompted the Williams Lake Fire Department to remind residents to pull over when an emergency vehicle is approaching with lights and siren on. The British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act, Section 177, states: “On the immediate approach of an emergency vehicle giving an audible signal by bell, siren or exhaust whistle, and showing a visible flashing red light, except when otherwise directed by a peace officer, a driver must yield the right of way, and immediately drive to a position parallel to and as close as possible to the nearest edge or curb of the roadway, clear of an intersection, and stop and remain in that position until the emergency vehicle has passed.” Here’s how to help: • Signal, pull over to the nearest edge of the road on the approach of an emergency vehicle and stop • If at an intersection, move out of the intersection if it is safe to do so, and then stop at the edge of the road until the emergency vehicle has passed • Check for additional emergency vehicles before pulling back out onto the roadway • Use your rearview mirror(s) frequently to monitor for emergency vehicles approaching from the rear • You may see an emergency vehicle before you hear it. Be attentive to the flashing lights. It will give you more time to select a safe place to pull over

Our Viewpoint

Chop Oda’s pension When former International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda’s resignation went into effect on July 31, it brought more questions about what’s wrong with the special treatment the folks we elect receive in Ottawa. Oda has been under a dark cloud of suspicion and ridicule for her outlandish spending habits that were being paid for by the country’s taxpayers. Her spending habits are well-documented, as she has billed taxpayers for everything from chauffeured limousines, a $16 glass of orange juice and luxurious accommodations at London’s Savoy Hotel. She later paid back the difference between the costs of the two hotels. However, some other questions about Oda’s spending habits abroad have yet to be resolved. Records show she modified the amounts related to expenses on a number of recent trips, but has refused to reveal why those figures were changed. She was later forced to apologize to the House of Commons when a document turned up, showing that Canadian International Development Agency officials had actually OK’d the funding, but the then Minister of International

Development had the word “not� inserted into the approval form. She had become an embarrassment for the federal Conservative government, and the power brokers could no longer defend her by ignoring the public outcry. So, Ms. Oda was forced to take the high road and resigned. While she rightfully lost her $233,247 salary, her car and driver, and allowances for travel and housing, Canadian taxpayers are still on the hook for her gold-plated pension. Ms. Oda’s pension will give her more than $50,000 a year. The pension is indexed to inflation, so it will be increased every year with the cost of living and it’s guaranteed for the rest of her life. Should anything happen to the retired parliamentarian, a surviving spouse is entitled to 60 per cent of the money for life. That’s a pretty nice payout for someone who has only served seven years. It’s outrageous that someone who has blatantly disrespected the taxpayers with her outlandish spending should live so high off the hog for the rest of her life. This has to change, but it will only happen if we, the taxpayers, make it happen. — Ken Alexander

he cachet of eating locally grown food hit home for me after a recent visit to New York City. Our son was working there and we had a chance to visit on his birthday, which called for a special celebration. Of the myriad of fine restaurants he could have chosen, he chose Blue Hill in trendy Soho. It is a one-star Michelin restaurant, which means very high standards. Blue Hill is famous not only due to a recent visit specifically requested by President Barack Obama, but for sourcing most of its food seasonally and locally from its own farm in Connecticut. When experiencing fine dining, it is expected that the server brings the wine to the table and explains the virtues of that particular vintage. For Blue Hill, I was surprised when servers came out with whole parsnips attractively displayed on a platter to show guests the vegetables from the farm and eloquently explain the type of parsnip and how it was used in the cuisine. Most greenhouse gasses produced in agriculture come from the inputs required to grow, process and transport food. On average, about seven per cent can be attributed to transportation. Buying local food in season and organically whenever possible creates less greenhouse gasses. The economic benefits are even more compelling. More money stays in the community and support for local agriculture creates local jobs. More jobs in agriculture helps to make it a more attractive and sustainable profession and this, in turn, can reduce our reliance on imported food. The social and cultural benefits of local food are often not as easily recognized. Some of the fondest memories my children and I have are growing and harvesting our garden. I will never forget the pride I saw as they held up a bunch of carrots or the excitement — equal to finding treasure — when they dug up potatoes. In addition, our First Nations traditional local foods are steeped in custom and culture. Finally, the longer fruit and vegetables can be kept in the field and then picked at their peak the better the nutritional content. Fresh fruits and vegetables at their peak taste better too. Enjoy and support local food whether you grow it yourself, buy it locally, or ask for local food be included at your favourite restaurant. Rose Soneff is a community nutritionist with Interior Health. MLA Bob Simpson’s column is unavailable this week.

NEWS Fish Lake gathering Aug. 25-26 Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Tsilhqot’in chiefs and youths are preparing to host a gathering at Fish Lake Aug. 25 to 26. It will be an opportunity to meet chiefs, elders and community members, try horseback riding, fishing, great food and witness a talent show, music, tournaments and more. “The youth are hosting the gathering,� Xeni Gwet’in Chief Marilyn Baptiste says. Protecting Teztan

Biny (Fish Lake) and surrounding area is something Baptiste describes as an ongoing struggle in light of the proposed New Prosperity mine. “The youth are wanting people to hear from them and hear the reasons why the land is important to them, why their culture is important, and why we need to save our territory.� Baptiste says choosing Fish Lake to hold the gathering will provide the area’s supporters with the chance to learn

more about Tsilhqot’in culture and territory and why protection of other water bodies in the area such as Nabas (Little Fish Lake), nearby Yanah Biny and the Dasiqox (Taseko River) are vital to First Nations communities. “Fish Lake is a part of our caretaker area and a part of who we are. I’ve gone there since I was young when my dad was chief and he brought us there. He taught us not only about fishing, but how our people used to use a fish trap and

where they would set a fish trap in Fish Lake,� Baptiste says. People from all walks of life will say the fish will practically jump into their boats, she adds. “The loons are amazing. It’s beautiful, amazing, peaceful and powerful to be able to sit there and watch and listen. You can see osprey or eagles fishing.� Fish Lake is located three hours southwest of Williams Lake.

Duo wins bronze at nationals Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Inspired by words of wisdom from provincial coach Rick Pimlott, Williams Lake rugby players Jaime Carrier and Jasmyn Niquidet helped lead Team B.C. to a bronze medal at the U18 National Rugby Championships last week. The tournament, held in Sherbrooke, Que. from Aug. 8-12, saw Team BC shutout the hometown favourite Quebec 13-0 in the bronzemedal match following a heartbreaking loss to eventual gold-medal winner Alberta, 13-8, in the semifinal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the Alberta game everyone was super disappointed, which is understandable,â&#x20AC;? Niquidet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Rick said ... the true athletes are the ones who can take a loss and then the next day forget about it and keep moving forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what we did. After the Alberta game we were upset, there were a few tears, but as soon as we got back to the dorms we got focused and were pretty serious after that. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the loss get us down.â&#x20AC;? For the most part, B.C. dominated their respective matches in the tour-

B.C. opened with a 13-0 shutout of Saskatchewan, before falling 1510 to Alberta in round robin play of day one. Day two saw B.C. bounce back with a 68-0 drubbing over Manitoba and a 92-0 shellacking of New Brunswick, prior to its two playoff games. Both said the bronze-medal match was hard-fought, and agreed they just as easily could have been playing in the gold-medal game had a

couple of bad bounces gone in their favour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they were that much better than us,â&#x20AC;? Niquidet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just one try behind them in both games but in rugby the ball, it bounces weird sometimes, and we just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get very lucky bounces.â&#x20AC;? Alberta went on to beat Ontario, who normally claims the gold medal, 15-10 in the final. Carrier, who graduated from Columneetza Secondary School this past June, said Quebecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team did

everything in its power to stop them from scoring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just like our coach told us before the game,â&#x20AC;? Carrier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were tenacious, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to give up. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us getting through [their defence] and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us to score.â&#x20AC;? Niquidet, who is headed into her Grade 12 year at CSS, said the key to the tournament was Team B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong defence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defence was just amazing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Except for Alberta we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a try scored on us, and that was just kind of unlucky.â&#x20AC;? The duo, who were both playing in their second stint with B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U18 national team, said they were looked up to as leaders by the first-year players. Team BC was chosen following a week-long identification camp in Vancouver last month. Prior to the tournament the girls spent a week in Vancouver preparing with the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a lot of new girls and I think there were a lot of nerves to start out,â&#x20AC;? Niquidet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But every game we got better and better.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved it,â&#x20AC;? Carrier added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the players were so willing to learn and they were always asking questions and ready to learn. I thought that was awesome.â&#x20AC;?

Klassen undefeated in three fights Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake’s Laura Klassen improved to an undefeated three wins and no losses after winning a unanimous decision in Edmonton last week. Klassen travelled to Alberta to take on hometown boxer Lori ‘Mama Dukes’ Porter in a three-round contest on Thursday, Aug. 9 at Edmonton’s Churchill Square. The event, Pink Gloves for Breast Cancer, was hosted as a fundraiser. Klassen, who’s been training for just two years at the Williams Lake Boxing Club, said it was good to get back in the ring. “I felt pretty good,” she said. “I felt strong, I knew I was quicker than her, but she came

at me a lot — or it seemed that way, anyway.” Williams Lake Boxing Club coach Gary McLellan, who was on hand to witness the fight, said Laura outmatched her opponent significantly throughout the contest. “Larua outlanded her about two to one in punches in taking the unanimous decision,” Gary said. “But she [Porter] was tough. She came to fight.” Klassen said the key to the win was her jab, which she landed repeatedly throughout the fight. “I landed lots [of good shots],” she said. “I landed my jab a lot, but she got me once really good that I felt.” For her performance in the fight Klassen was awarded the best

female fighter of the night, winning a pair of pink gloves with the honour. “That was pretty neat and exciting,” she said. In preparation for the bout Klassen trained Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Williams Lake Boxing Club. As one of the lone female boxers there, she said spending time sparring with local club members Robert McLellan, Stuart McLellan, Harley Mulvahill and Gary helped get her ready. “Roberto, Stu, Harley and Gary all spar with me,” she said. “The McLellan boys and Harley are always willing to help, and I don’t think I’d be as good as I am without them. They’ve spent a lot of time teaching me.”

She added she’s looking forward to her next fight, although said it’s a bit of a challenge to find women

who box. Gary added the Williams Lake Boxing Club will be opening up for new members

at the beginning of September and invites anyone interested to come try the sport. The club, located

beneath Western Wood Heat on Highway 97, trains every Tuesday and Thursday starting at 6 p.m.

Sixth annual hockey camp a hit Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer It was a half week of training and learning for about 40 youth registered in the Punky Lake Wilderness Camp Society and Denisiqi Service Society’s Sixth Annual Hockey Camp. The camp, which ran Monday to Wednesday this week at the Total Ice Training Centre, was primarily for First Nations youth. Bruce Baptiste, who helped organized the camp along with several others, said it’s extremely helpful for the kids. “It’s very beneficial,” Baptiste said. “Most of these kids have played hockey in the past but there are a few who have just started learning how to play the game. This just introduces them to the game of hockey, and it’s teaching them a lot of the basic skills.” Kids aged six to 18, both male and female, participated in the camp. Baptiste said it also helps

break down barriers between First Nations and non-First Nations youth. “We also have some non-natives participating,” he said. “That way the kids are all intermingling and it helps break down those racial barriers.” The camp was divided into three sections — a cultural workshop section, a dry land portion and an on-ice training session each day. “For the cultural workshop, or just workshop, we did a unit on nutrition one day, then some smudging the next — and that teaches them part of their culture — and then we’re doing some stretching and team building,” he said. Tyrell Lucas, owner of Total Ice, taught the dry land portion. “He did a really good job,” Baptiste said. “He was really good, really professional.” Wednesday night the camp wrapped up with a dinner and banquet in the Gibraltar Room.

SD 27 distance education program growing Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Back to school is just around the corner but some students in the Williams Lake area wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going back to the traditional bricks and mortar school setting. More and more parents these days are opting to home school their children. While many parents may choose a private home-schooling curriculum, parents who really want to spare the private school expense can opt for the public home schooling or Distance Education option. School District 27 has offered a home-school program for about 20 years, says Distance Education teacher Ann Pilszek. In the beginning it was mostly families living in rural and remote settings who took advantage of the option, but these days many city dwellers are also happily choosing to home-school. Today there are about 65 students in the kindergarten to Grade 10 Distance Education  program, which includes an interactive, online component for grades 8 to 10 students. In addition to following  Ministry of Education approved curriculum, the program includes support from district teachers and staff, as well as activities that bring schooling at home  students together for group learning activities. The students study natural sciences every second week at the Scout Island Nature Centre, visit Gavin Lake forest education centre periodically and participate in various group arts, cultural and sporting activities. Next year Abby Shoults  and her husband Daniel will have four children in the Distance Education program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We home-school because we think it is a better choice for our kids,â&#x20AC;? Abby says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get to be their mentors and choose who their mentors will be and instill in them the morals and standards we have.â&#x20AC;? She says they started home schooling when their oldest child was in Grade 5 and they found she was losing her love for learning because she had to do things a certain way in the classroom setting. Now home-schooled in Grade 9, she says her daughter has regained her love for learning because she is learning in a more hands-on way at her own pace. She says each child has his or her own learning style and they like the fact they can tailor their study programs to their individual childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. A child can advance faster in one area if they are able and take more

She says they also enjoy the opportunities for integrating studies such as writing with social studies or history, or combining math and science studies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy is a little different,â&#x20AC;? Abby says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can create a learning environment that best fits our own children.â&#x20AC;? Â She says they started home schooling with another program and then switched to the School District 27 program and enjoy the

support that is provided with the program. She says a teacher comes to their home every other week for some one-on-one time with their kids and to assess their progress and to suggest study materials and extra curricular activities. She also enjoys the fact that the program provides group activities with opportunities for their children to socialize and mentor and be mentored by children of different ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can afford to have one parent at home it is the way to go and the district is there to help us,â&#x20AC;? Abby says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school district is willing to get the learning materials we want as long as they can be used by everyone.â&#x20AC;? Jennifer Nickel has been home schooling her son Caden, 11, for two years but has home-schooled all six of her children at various times. Caden goes into Grade 6 this year and says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss regular school at all because he gets to spend more time at home and participate in activities with other home-schooled students.  He especially enjoyed outings with other students at Scout Island every two weeks and has been able to participate in all kinds of recreational activities such as karate, fencing, yoga, pottery, gymnastics, swimming and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve home schooled through a variety of home schools and this one (SD 27) has been amazing,â&#x20AC;? Nickel says. Nickel says all six of her chil-

dren have chosen different routes to education. One attends Maranatha Christian School. Two attend Columneetza Secondary. One is home schooled and she still has two preschoolers at home. She says her older three sons attended regular elementary school, and enjoyed being home-schooled and doing more things with their parents through their middle school years. Then they were ready to go back into the regular school system to finish high school. She says Caden works three days intensely on academic studies and has two days a week for hands-on activities and field trips. Every two weeks a teacher visits them to help with grading and curriculum support. Pilszek says parents may have the option of having home visits or bringing their students to the Distance Education offices at GROW, relocated last year to  the Marie Sharpe Elementary grounds, for the consultations. This year Pilszek says some of the other group learning activities for the intermediate to junior high age group included scrap-booking, personal planning, CORE hunter safety for students 10 and over, geocaching in the Williams Lake River Valley, a hike at  Horsefly, and building bird houses.  While the support teachers for the Distance Education program provide assessments and evaluations of student progress Pilszek says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The parents are truly the educators and we are the support.â&#x20AC;?

Local photographer Allison Bos’s works are part of the 2012 Art Walk and Sale. Her photographs can be viewed at Cariboo Chiropractic and Medical Centre on Cameron Street until Sept. 8. Bos divides her artistry between photographing people and architecture.

Allison Bos shoots for the unique Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer When Allison Bos was a kid, her paternal grandfather Eric Goodman instilled in her a knack for photography. Goodman was a professional nature photographer in Osoyoos, and although Allison was born and raised in Kamloops, she often accompanied him out in the field and into the dark room. “From him I learned to always have your camera with you, and to look for the unordinary in the ordinary,” Allison recalls. Her first solo forays into photography were typical of most children. With a point-andshoot film camera she’d received for her eighth birthday from her parents, she ran around photographing things inside the house. “My dad was an amazing photographer too,” she says. Chuckling, she remembers those early attempts mostly featured blurry pictures of her cat. “I was probably in motion chasing the cat, trying to get a picture.” It was during high school that her love for photography really blossomed. There she worked in the dark room, doing things for the yearbook. From there she minored in photography while studying at UBC for her education degree. A member of the Professional Photographer’s Association of British Columbia and National Association of Photoshop Professionals, Bos continues to take classes and says there are always new things to learn. When at home, most

of her photography centres on people — babies, weddings, children and families. Baby photography is one of her favourite activities because clients will hand her a five-day old baby and let her go to work. “There’s so much innocence with a newborn — they sleep and don’t move. I love cuddling with them.” One of the photographs in the exhibit features a pregnant tummy at month intervals. Allison also offers a beginner photography class called “I want to shoot my kids.” In the three-to-five hour workshop, she shows people how to use their cameras and what all the buttons and dials mean. “I give tips and ideas

on how to get better pictures and how to get away from using the auto setting. If there’s time we’ll go outside and take photographs to practice right away what you’ve just learned.” The other half of her photography emerges whenever she travels. “That’s when I get what my husband calls my urban artistic art, where you’re not quite sure what it is.” Following in her grandfather’s footsteps, she continues looking for the unusual. Her 2012 artwork exhibit features several architectural subjects she’s gleaned while travelling. Aside from professional photography Bos is also a teacher at Glendale Elementary School. She arrived in Williams Lake in 2001 to do her

teaching practicum. During her last weekend in Williams Lake, she met her future husband, chiropractor Mike Bos, who was home in Williams Lake doing a preceptor or internship. The couple have a four-year-old daughter Peyton. Allison loves architecture and the lines and says one of her favourite photographs in the exhibit was taken in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. It’s called “Wright Spiral” because the spiral shaped museum was designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. When Allison walked into the museum and looked up she knew exactly what she wanted with that photograph. Next March she hopes to go to another big city,

she says. Learning how to use Photoshop has been an exciting learning curve for Allison because it is such a “massive, massive” program. “When we built our house, we built a dark room in it, but before getting my dark room set up, I went digital.” She soon discovered she could do things in Photoshop that she would have done in the dark room but without chemicals. “Using Photoshop has actually made my life easier and faster.” Allison’s work is shown at the Cariboo Chiropractic and Medical Centre on Cameron Street. Allison is participating in Artwalk for the second time; however, says she hasn’t had any other exhibits since university.

MORTGAGE MESSAGE Gauge Your Ability to Handle Rising Rates The first question people often ask their broker when deciding on a mortgage is: “Where do you see rates going?” We brokers never know for sure where the rate setters (the Bank of Canada and bond traders) will take the market next. So the best thing a broker can do is measure your ability to handle rising payments. To gauge that we use a handy acronym called IDEAS. Ask yourself these questions: Income: • Is your income stable and reliable? • Is there a low chance of your income being interrupted? Debt: • Do you have a reasonable debt ratio (income vs. payments)? • Can you withstand 50% higher payments if rates increased from 3% to 6%? Equity: • Do you have enough equity or down payment? • Is the loan-to-value on your property under 80% so you can refinance if absolutely needed? Assets: • Do you have a positive net worth (more assets than liabilities)? • Do you have a credit line as a backup source of liquidity Sensitivity (to Risk): • Can you mentally and financially accept risk? • Do you understand the difference between a fixed rate and variable rate? The best thing to do is to sit down with your mortgage broker and talk about your options for rates, lenders and mortgage products. Having the above questions in mind when you do will have you well prepared!

“They call the Cariboo home” The Cariboo the apple of Tom Salley’s eye Monica Lamb-Yorski photos

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Almost four decades of Tom Salley’s life has been spent in the Cariboo. He arrived here from Colorado in 1973 with 12 university buddies in search of a young man’s adventure, he says. A year later, the group of 13 buddies purchased the Bobb Inn Ranch between Quesnel and Williams Lake, seven miles off the West Fraser Road. “It was a small scale cattle/hay ranch,” he explains. None of the guys were experienced with agriculture when they arrived; however, today the ranch is still in operation with about half the original purchasers living in homes there. After a decade of involvement with the ranch, Salley branched off on his own and purchased property at Mackin Creek, also west of the Fraser River. It was an old homestead with a couple apple trees. Since then, the land has been cultivated to include 200 apple trees with 30 apple varieties, a 2,500-square-foot greenhouse and around 3,000 square-foot garden. “I mostly sell apples and tomatoes, and a few other things,” he says. While most grocery stores sell a combination of around 10 varieties of apples, Salley notes with 30 varieties he is able to space his harvesting and sales. The varieties range from early apples that don’t last very long, to storage apples that can last for months in a root cellar. If all trees are producing, his customers might get three new varieties every week. “If I had 200 trees and had to pick them all in two weeks and market them I could never do it. With different varieties coming in every week for about eight weeks straight, then I can market them and keep up with the picking alone.” Old-style McIntosh is the vari-

ety that surprises people the most, Salley points out. “The reason they have such a wonderful taste is because of where we live. I can allow my apples to get a frost on them before I harvest them and that doubles the sugar. “My McIntosh are often much sweeter than those from the Okanagan because I’ve been able to leave them and get a frost.” It’s a trick he’s discovered as he has gone along, he says with a chuckle.

Salley, who has no official education in agriculture, sells produce at the Quesnel Market, and in Williams Lake at Margetts Meat Market and the Cariboo Growers Co-operative. He also plans to sell to the Sta-Well Health Food Store this fall. He has been part of Cariboo Growers Co-operative from its inception. It took six years to bring the concept to fruition, he says, describing the Williams Lake Food Policy Council that initiated the

venture as a great team of people. Locally grown food is going to become more and more important for a host of reasons, and while he only grows food part time and doesn’t make a ton of money, Salley believes there is an opportunity for local growers. “If you know what you’re doing, and you have good ground and water, you can make a good living for a family on five acres of ground. Some crops, if you know how to market them and how to grow them correctly bring in

$20,000 to $25,000 an acre.” The key is marketing and gaining knowledge by accessing people who have the expertise. “Agriculture’s easy until you get to the marketing.” There’s opportunity there, he explains. “If we could have somebody grow five tons of potatoes and put them in a root cellar, and somebody else grow carrots and store them we could supply those. At the co-op we’re trying to fill gaps of the food that we have to bring in.” It’s doable and better, he adds. Aside from growing food, he works as a social worker and guitarist and vocalist in the local band Big Twang Daddy. Salley credits the call of nature and wildlife as drawing factors of living in the Cariboo. “There’s not too many places you can live down in the USA that you can have wolves, cougars, moose, elk, bighorn sheep, coyote, all living right there with you,” he says. “That’s just the way I wanted to live.” People have a role to play, he adds. “It was such an adventure coming here, working on ranches and in the bush. All the work I did in the beginning was all trades and labour.” He was employed by other ranches, in mills, as a truck driver, and carpenter — whatever he could find. He didn’t become a social worker until the late 80s. Social work is rewarding and raising food is the most basic form of social work there is, he suggests. He sells what he can and the rest of his produce goes to nonprofits. “Where a lot of people just dump all of that stuff, part of the main thing for me is to sell what I can to the people that can afford it and then give away the rest to the people that can’t afford to buy locally grown stuff, rather than packaged food.”

Qualitative Respirator Fit Testing Qualitative Respirator Fit Testing is where a worker’s ability to detect a test agent (taste, odor, or irritation) determines a PASS/FAIL. The subject is required to perform a series of head and body motions typical of normal daily movement. If the flavored aerosol is undetectable to the subject on completion, the mask seal is adequate and the test is considered a pass. WORKSAFE BC APPROVED
