Groups send letters to mine panel

Proudly serving Williams Lake and the Cariboo-Chilcotin since 1930

MVI on Mackenzie Avenue

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Eight groups have responded to a request from Tsilhqot’in chiefs regarding the environmental assessment of the New Prosperity mine. The chiefs sent a letter to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency panel asking for clarification on whether its mandate will be to consider, assess and make recommendations concerning the potential impacts of the mine project on asserted and proven aboriginal rights. Parties wishing to comment had until Aug. 17. All submissions have been posted on the CEAA website. In a letter, Xeni Gwet’in (Nemiah Valley) Chief Marilyn Baptiste says the Tsilhqot’in people need to know whether the panel will have the same mandate to report on the project’s impacts on aboriginal rights and title as the previous panel.

City invited to crime stat meeting Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Mayor Kerry Cook says when she’s gone to workshops and meetings, she’s shared Williams Lake’s successful strategies in reducing crime. So when the city received a letter from Thompson Mayor Tim Johnston inviting the city to attend a meeting with other Canadian municipalities that fell in the top five rankings in the latest crime severity index, Cook immediately viewed it as a proactive measure. “I would love to hear what the other mayors and municipalities perceive what we do have in common,” Cook said. “What’s working in certain communities and how we can share some positive things and learn from each other to work together to find some solutions.” Johnston told the Tribune Wednesday the response to his letter — also sent to the mayors

of North Battleford, Portage la Prairie, Prince Albert, Yorkton, Prince Rupert, and Yellowknife — has received an overwhelming positive response. “We have not heard a negative response in terms of participation. In fact, most have indicated a willingness to travel and it looks like we’ll proceed with a meeting late September to mid October,” Johnston said, adding they want to avoid any elections or conventions such as the Union of BC Municipalities taking place in Victoria Sept. 24 to 28. Thompson ranked first overall in terms of violent crime and second overall in both overall crime and non-violent crime for communities with a population of more than 10,000; however, the community has been working on some interesting ways of tackling crime. “Prince Albert in Saskatchewan are doing some very interesting things,” Johnston said. “What really struck us when

we looked at the numbers and did a little bit of analysis we saw very clearly there were an awful lot of similarities between the communities placing in the top five.” His council felt it was important to have those communities come together and talk about the index itself, because in some ways smaller communities may be challenged by the index because of per capita. “There’s nothing there that pre-qualifies in terms of the data other than per capita. One major incident in a small community doesn’t look very good.” Johnston suggested the meeting will be an opportunity to look at the index, but more importantly to share some ideas that are taking place. “I truly believe we have to be very strong as municipalities and approach senior levels of government, whether that’s provincial or federal, and have a discussion because if we’re starting to see some of those common elements

in communities then maybe we have to look at an approach where we start to target those things for those communities.” The Federation of Canadian Municipalities has also shown a strong interest in the proposed meeting and becoming involved. “I think that’s important and will take it to a new level. In all honesty the response has been far more positive than we even anticipated.” A location for the meeting hasn’t been determined. However, Johnston indicated many have said they’d be willing to travel to Thompson, even though his letter indicated Thompson would be willing to hold the meeting in a more central location. Cook and council discussed the invitation during the regular council meeting Tuesday and showed enthusiasm for the idea. See VIDEO Page A2

Video conference preferred Continued From Page A1 Most council members, however, felt a teleconference or video conference meeting would be the best option because of travel costs. Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said Williams Lake has been in Thompson’s shoes, rating first on the crime index, and that it would be useful to participate in the discussion. “We should be fully concerned for all Canadians and I think it would be worth it to share from our expe-

rience and learn from other people,� he said, adding the city’s participation should cost taxpayers the minimum. Coun. Sue Zacharias said she is not totally opposed to someone going to the meeting in a central place like Calgary, for example, or even inviting people to come to Williams Lake. “I think it’s worth pursuing, especially when it’s enough cities that could get together and do something and come out of it with a message to the federal or provincial government,� she said.

Committee to negotiate fire protection with CRD Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Three fire protection agreements affecting the fringe and rural areas around Williams Lake will expire at the end of this year. As a result, the city has appointed a committee to negotiate new agreements with the Cariboo Regional District. Members of the committee include councillors Laurie Walters, Geoff Bourdon, and Sue Zacharias with support from chief administrative officer Brian Carruthers and director of finance Pat Higgins. In July the provincial government alerted the city that the provincial fire agreement presently in place for fringe areas outside the city would be discontinued by the end of the year, and that an alternative arrangement would need to be made. The other two agreements with the CRD include areas beyond the provincial agreement and include Fox Mountain, Esler, and upper Dog Creek Road. A meeting with the committee and the CRD is scheduled for tonight (Aug. 23), which Mayor Kerry Cook said shows the importance of getting both bodies together to work toward a solution. Coun. Danica Hughes wondered if residents would be consulted and asked what they want, but

Greg Sabatino photo

Cook answered the residents are outside the city and would be consulted with by the CRD. Carruthers explained the agreements had been in place for a number of years. However, the one the provincial government wants to remove itself from is one of only two left in the province. “The issue is that the province wants out of the agreement. It’s no longer common practice. So it becomes the regional district’s responsibility to provide that service and they’ve indicated to the city that they are interested in negotiating for us to continue to provide that service to the people in that fire service area,” Carruthers said. In a letter to the city dated Aug. 2, CRD chief administrative officer Janis Bell said in order for the CRD to gain authority to tax those residents, it would be necessary to create a new function and the CRD is under significant time restraints to make that happen. The CRD is interested in pursuing a negotiated agreement with the city, she added, but said those negotiations would have to come to a positive outcome in a very short time frame. “Alternatively, the regional district would need to consider other options to provide fire protection services directly,” Bell noted.

About 30 riders took part in the Third Annual Williams Lake Toy Drive from Williams Lake to Likely. Toys collected by the group, organized by Dave Hansen, will be donated to the Salvation Army, the Child Development Centre and Victim Services. Here, riders, loaded up with stuffed animals, head toward Oliver Street.

Letters make recommendations Continued From Page A1 “To our people, it is simply not possible to separate our rights as aboriginal peoples from the lands and resources that sustain these rights. It cannot be done. Our communities will not understand or accept such an artificial distinction.” Baptiste suggests the public and First Nations are looking to the panel for an independent, impartial second assessment of the project impacts. “If this panel cannot assess impacts on aboriginal rights and title, in the same manner as the previous panel, then it cannot carry out this important role.” On behalf of Taseko Mines Ltd., Karl E. Gustafson, Q.C., submitted a letter outlining the company’s recommendations. Taseko lays out a breakdown of responsibilities for the panel and government in a table and recommends changes to the panel’s terms of reference. Those recommendations include the panel having the ability to consider and assess the potential impact of the project on potential and established aboriginal

rights and title. In that sense, Taseko says, it may make findings about the manner or extent to which the project would have adverse impacts on such asserted rights or title after consideration of the relevant mitigation measures proposed by the proponent through the Environmental Impact Statement or as modified by the proponent during the hearing process. The second recommended change is for the panel, in its report, to also identify other mitigation measures that could further mitigate adverse impacts on asserted or established aboriginal rights or title. But, Taseko says, the panel should not recommend which, if any, such additional measures are necessary to discharge the Crown’s duty to consult and accommodate, and in the case of established rights, the Crown’s obligation to determine whether any infringement of such rights would be justified. “In making any such findings, the panel shall also indicate the views of interested aboriginal groups and the proponent concerning such additional mitigation measures, and may also indicate whether, in the

panel’s view, such additional mitigation measures are reasonable and practicable in the circumstances.” The letter concludes by suggesting it is appropriate to ensure that the panel does not make recommendations around additional mitigation or whether the government’s duty to consult and discharge related obligations have been met. Stswecem’c Xgat’tem (Canoe Creek Band) Chief David Archie, in his letter, urges the panel to rely on and not “second guess” the panel report from the first Prosperity Mine review and that when the panel makes its decision that it answers whether the new proposal addresses the problems with the project that were identified by the first panel. “As with the first panel, you cannot make any final decisions on our rights or whether Canada has fully consulted us. However, by reason of what is stated in the introduction and by the fact that you can make recommendations for measures to address infringements of our rights we believe you can and must decide whether anything has been done by Taseko, Canada or

B.C. to address the concerns identified by the first panel,” Archie states. In his submission, Bill Carruthers, chairperson for Share Cariboo/ Chilcotin Resources, suggests the panel should not be making recommendations concerning aboriginal rights and title, and to do so is outside the panel’s mandate. “The subject is complicated and has had court rulings that do not make it clear what rights and title the Aboriginal people have or don’t have,” he notes. Rights and title is an ongoing issue that will not be solved easily,” he states, adding, “please don’t try to solve a complicated issue at the expense of development potential that will benefit all the people of the Chilcotin.” Echoing Carruthers, the Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce’s letter, signed by president Jason Ryll and past president and chair Walt Cobb, suggests the panel should not be making any recommendations based on aboriginal rights and title. “If the mine will have an impact in some way on the aboriginal people, then it should be reported in the findings, but the

issue of non-identfied rights and title is outside the panel’s mandate. Aboriginal rights and title is the responsibility of the federal government, not the panel,” the chamber letter says. A submission from the Esketemc First Nation, prepared by Janes Freedman Kyle Law Corporation, proposes the panel’s ability to recommend mitigations is restricted to the point of being meaningless, given “the recent legislative changes and TOR (terms of reference) amendments respecting CEAA 2012 and the other limitations in the panel’s mandate, which have yet to be addressed in any concurrent Crown consultation process to date.” The letter also raises concerns that the panel’s ability to recommend mitigation is limited to addressing effects that are based on its assessment of environmental effects. “This conflicts with consultation law, which requires a direct assessment of potential adverse impacts from the project to rights — which is not solely limited to impacts that arise from a consideration of what constitutes environmental effects.”

Woodland Drive residents form neighbourhood watch Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Woodland Drive residents are stepping up to keep an eye out after a couple of quads were stolen and attempts were made to steal a few more and a pick-up truck from the neighbourhood. “It’s really unfortunate,” resident Martin Sills says. “Crime in the city is a big concern. On Woodland we’re lulled into a safe sense of security because of the privacy. It’s a dead-end street so thieves normally avoid something like that because if they get stuck in there, they’ve got no place to run.” As a result of what he describes as a “rash” of

incidents a neighbourhood watch has been resurrected. “We have a group more specific to our water and sewer issue. Woodland Drive is all well-connected. We all have distribution lists so we can contact all of the neighbours with a couple key strokes.” People are reporting to neighbours any strange vehicles and their descriptions, licence plate numbers, or if somebody is driving around late at night. “We are quite used to our own vehicles,” Sills says, explaining neighbours recognize each other and their vehicles. “We know all the people that come around and walk their A5

dogs. We’ve become very vigilant in terms of reporting to all the neighbours and to the RCMP anything that is a little strange.” The residents are also vamping up personal security by acquiring security systems if they don’t have them and making sure to set their alarms if they do. The focus, Sills explains, is to drive thieves out, or better yet, catch them. “We want to stop this in its tracks. By sharing on the Internet everyone is made aware of what to look for immediately.” Williams Lake RCMP Insp. Warren Brown says police are aware of a few recent

hot spots in Williams Lake where they have seen an increase in property crimes related to theft of and theft from vehicles. “Police are aware of a few individuals in the community who are persons of interest and will be making diligent and focused efforts to thwart and deter their continued determination in committing these criminal offences,” Brown says and reminds citizens not to turn a blind eye when they observe suspicious behaviour, but rather report it to the police. Brown also reminds citizens not to leave valuable possessions in plain view in a vehicle.

The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message heard



he weather was perfect last Thursday for the final Performances in the Park and Kids Running For Kids barbecue, and it was a fantastic event! I enjoyed listening to the incredible local musicians, meeting the kids, and helping out at the barbecue. Councillors also had a great time serving up more than 500 hot From the dogs. An Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated $1,000 Chair w a s Kerry Cook raised for the B.C. Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital that night, which will be matched by CN. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on top of the roughly $90,000 Kids Running For Kids have already raised. Thank to all who participated and donated. After a recent scare with my granddaughter (she is OK now), I am even more thankful for our local hospital and the services we have. By raising money for the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital, Kids Running For Kids recognize how health care, especially for children, affects us all. The Special Committee on Timber Supply has issued its report, and it appears the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s messages were heard loud and clear. The city supports the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m especially pleased to see the continued support for the three Beetle Action Coalitions, and that forest areas will be reviewed on a site-by-site basis rather than a onesize-fits-all approach. The forest industry has been and will continue to be important in our community. The province recognizes the need to work with communities, industry, and First Nations moving forward. We currently have three fire protection agreements for the fringe areas around the city. The city has just received notice that the largest agreement, with the province, will be expiring in December. That means the city and the Cariboo Regional District will have to get together and agree on how we are going to provide fire protection services after December. At Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, the city appointed councillors Geoff Bourdon, Laurie Walters, and Sue Zacharias to a negotiating committee, to work with the CRD to ensure we address the issue. The city is committed to finding a positive outcome. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Our Viewpoint

ICBC mishandled The BC Liberals have completely mishandled ICBC, and the proof came last week, when a review showed that the company has been hiring boatloads of senior managers and paying them more each year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with the government apparently oblivious. There are 32 per cent more managers than in 2007, and they are paid (as a group) 70 per cent more than managers received in 2007. Fifty-four of them made more than $200,000 each in 2011. The Liberals insisted, on taking office in 2001, that ICBC didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be privatized, nor did there need to be complete competition in the auto insurance sector. They have also insisted, especially in recent years, that substantial dividends from ICBC go back to the shareholder â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the government. This means that all ICBC customers, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everyone who owns a vehicle, are paying additional insurance premiums to boost government

revenues. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tax grab, hidden in the guise of insurance costs. The government has now, very belatedly, said ICBC needs to cut its management costs and manager compensation. This comes just after ICBC has boosted insurance rates by 11.2 per cent. The simple fact is this: ICBC is being used by government for all sorts of purposes that are far afield from its ostensible role as a public car insurance company. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t new â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the NDP did this with ICBC back in its earliest days. But it certainly points out that the Liberals are just as good as the NDP at mismanaging Crown corporations and sticking taxpayers with extra costs. ICBC needs to be privatized. There is no real need to have government operate a car insurance company that forces all drivers to buy at least basic car insurance. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Black Press

or me a fresh tomato off the vine is one of the best parts of summer. This time of year tomatoes are in abundance, and one of my favourite ways to use them is in salsa. Salsa made with fresh, locally grown ingredients is so much tastier than the store-bought variety and it can be a nutritious snack. Tomatoes are low in sugar and calories and are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and fibre. They are also a great source of the antioxidant called lycopene, which is thought to help prevent prostate cancer. Lycopene is more readily absorbed from cooked tomatoes so cooking and canning salsa is a good way to preserve tomatoes for the winter months. Fresh herbs and spicy peppers provide so much flavour that excess salt is unnecessary. Here is a fresh salsa recipe that makes a great appetizer. 2 cups fresh roma tomatoes, diced 1 red pepper, roasted and diced 1 cup black beans (optional) 1/2 cup red onion, diced 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 2 limes, juiced ½-1 jalapeĂąo, seeds removed (use jalapenos as per your heat preference) 1 tsp cumin Salt to taste Roast the red pepper by placing under the broiler. Allow the skin to blacken and crack, using tongs to turn frequently. You want to blacken the skin but not burn the flesh. When the pepper is black on all sides remove from the oven and place in a paper bag or a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the pepper to sit for at least five minutes before peeling off the blackened skin and removing the core and seeds. Chop the cooled pepper and the rest of the ingredients and combine with cumin and salt to your taste. You can also try roasting tomatoes with garlic, onions, and a little salt and pepper. Small tomatoes such as cherry or grape can be roasted whole. Larger tomatoes can be halved or quartered. Place washed tomatoes on a baking sheet covered with tin foil, drizzle with olive oil and roast at 450Ë&#x161; F for 20 to 40 minutes, until the tomato skins have popped and are browning. Serve with fresh herbs on pasta or put in the blender and puree into a sauce (drain off some of the excess liquid first). Simone Jennings is a registered dietitian with Interior Health.

City air quality an issue Editor:   I hear so many in our communities and country speaking out against whatever their favourite anti development issue currently is, proposed pipelines or whatever. Here in Williams Lake, mine development is one of the most publicized, local, anti-development issues. Most of the arguments raised against these projects are environmental. The proposed project supposedly will destroy water, air or even a lifestyle. Where, I wonder, are the voices protesting or raising concerns about Williams Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atmospheric environment? It was not that many years ago here in Williams Lake the big hue and cry was against sawmill beehive burners and their spewing of ash, dust and smoke into the air.

cogeneration plant. These former waste products are now turned into electrical energy that benefits thousands. While I am for economic development and job creation, I believe that all projects from mine development and pipelines, to be allowed to proceed, must meet stringent national and provincial environmental regulations. Meeting these regulations is the cost of doing business, similar to jobsite employee safety. No development in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world should get costsaving rewards at the expense of a safe environment or worker safety. So my question is, where are the environmentalists, and why are they not speaking up about the pellet plant spewing both dust and smoke into the Williams Lake environment?

tion of electrostatic precipitators. The installation of electrostatic precipitator devices reduces and cleans the atmospheric discharges from these plants. Certainly there is some cost involved to have these devices installed, and Williams Lake needs the employment provided by the pellet plant. However, the question again is, why are we giving the pellet plant a free ride on this dust and smoke issue? How much dust is spewing out of this plant? Ask a Canadian Tire employee to show you the inside of its daily parked vehicle. As with the old beehive burners, remember when, even with windows rolled up tight all day, interior dust would accumulate.

MLA letter promises to pursue Woodland Drive water funding Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Touting the Woodland Drive $3 million sewer and water project is going to be up to city council. “The city has done a lot of work in this area and I believe council has done what it said it would do so far, but the time has come to shake the tree,” Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said at the regular council meeting Tuesday. A letter to mayor and council from CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says she will continue to pursue funding for the project and, if infrastructure funding becomes available, will support an application. In their discussion, council asked staff for the project’s status. “Are we doing something or are we just giving lip service to the community?” Rathor asked, adding most of the people

he’s talked to have said they would be interested in having water and sewer in the area, as long as they don’t have to pay a large sum of money. Chief administrative officer Brian Carruthers told council there are no grants available that meet the project description. “As council’s aware, we applied to the gas tax program last year and the project did not meet the criteria, and that program’s criteria has not changed. Making MLA Barnett aware of this issue was to take it to the next level. Staff have done all they can to identify potential resources,” Carruthers said. Rathor agreed, saying it’s council’s job to push the project at the upcoming Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) convention in September. Coun. Sue Zacharias — after being cautious about the project be-

cause it only affects 49 properties — said she’s changed her tune. “I’m glad staff have been proactive. There’s a lot riding on it. It isn’t just about 49 properties; it’s about future development. The beginning of infrastructure up there would open up another few hundred acres.” As the economy grows and people move from more populated areas, they look toward areas like Williams Lake where it is a great place to raise a family, she said. Zacharias is confident staff are ready on a moment’s notice with an application for the project. “We don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. There is an election coming and there have been rumblings of infrastructure grant money becoming available. Who knows?” Admitting she’s changed her thinking,

she said there’s a longterm benefit she didn’t see a few months ago. “It’s very important and high on our list for lobbying,” she added. Coun. Geoff Bourdon described it as a political hot potato, saying it will be up to council to take it to government ministers and the premier. “We won’t be solving it at this table anyways,” Bourdon said. “We have enough background work that if something came up we could move, but I think it’s clear we need to go to UBCM singing its praises,” he said. Carruthers noted there have been discussions taking place with local governments pushing the federal government for more flexibility when it comes to negotiating access to long-term gas tax funding. “I was reading through a number of the survey responses and the summaries

of the surveys,” Carruthers said. “Consistently municipalities said if the funding is going to be available, let the municipalities determine what the priorities are — don’t go and place priorities on that funding.” Council voted in favour to receive the letter from Barnett. Mayor Kerry Cook was absent from the discussion, declaring a perceived conflict of interest because she lives on Woodland Drive. JlYjZi`Y\kfK_\Ki`Yle\

MORTGAGE MESSAGE 3-Month Penalties Aren’t Always Clearcut Breaking a closed term mortgage usually results in a penalty. With a fixed mortgage, that penalty is typically the greater of 3-month’s interest or the IRD (Interest Rate Differential). When most people calculate their 3-month interest penalty they do so by taking their mortgage balance, multiplying by their interest rate, and dividing by four. That usually works but some lenders calculate the penalty with a different rate than your contract rate. Some lenders will base your penalty on the posted rate at the time you closed the mortgage, instead of your contract rate: • On a mortgage balance of $170,000 with an interest rate of 3.64%, the 3-month interest charge would be about $1,547. • By contrast, the 3-month penalty based on posted rates would be almost $2,300. That’s an additional $752 based on a 20-year amortization left. And there is no legislation prohibiting this practice: • “There is nothing in the Bank Act (or Interest Act) that stipulates exactly what interest rate should be used in the calculation of a mortgage prepayment penalty,” says Natasha Nystrom, Communications Officer at the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada. “The calculation itself is a business decision.” So a lender can use almost any rate to calculate your penalty as long as it tells you in advance.

• “The Bank Act does require that all Federally Regulated Financial Institutions (FRFI) initially disclose the manner in which their penalty is calculated as well as a description of the components included in the calculation of the penalty,” Nystrom adds. So when you’re comparing two mortgages and the rates are equal, all other terms are rarely equal. It’s best to contact your mortgage broker for details on your specific lender and mortgage.

“They call the Cariboo home” Gillis brings pride to Williams Lake Photos submitted

Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer In the world of professional golf, the chances of making it big are slim. For a small-town boy who learned the game on home soil, the chances are even smaller. But don’t tell that to Williams Lake’s Mitch Gillis. The 28-yearold golfer took the game by storm, coming into his own near the beginning of the millennium right here in the lakecity, and he continues to see improvement each year he plays professionally. He currently plays on the Web. com Tour, formerly known as the Nationwide Tour. Growing up in the lakecity sports played a big role in Gillis’s life. In the summers he played soccer and golf, while during the winter his focus shifted to curling and hockey. He attended elementary school at Marie Sharpe and later went on to graduate in 2002 from Columneetza secondary. “I kept pretty active,” Gillis said. “But it was somewhere around the 14 to 16 range when the competitive rep soccer schedule really started conflicting with golf, so I ended up having to choose a sport. I quit rep soccer and focused on golf in the summer and ended up folding the hockey career and focused on curling in the wintertime and I guess the rest is history.” Gillis began golfing around age six. His parents let him tag along with them during their rounds at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club. “When I first started, at that age, my parents would hit their drives and then I would start from where their drives were, and then I would play the hole from there because I couldn’t hit it far enough,” he said. “I worked my way up to the point where I started out on the red tees at the Williams Lake club, which is probably only about 5,000 yards, until I was playing OK there.

Williams Lake’s Mitch Gillis is keeping busy golfing professionally on the Tour (formerly the Nationwide Tour) with plans to play the upcoming PGA Qualifying School tournament this September.

Then I moved up to the white tees, which is now a pretty short course, but it seemed really long at the time.” He credits learning the game at the WLGTC as a great starting point to his career since he said it forced him to develop a strong short game. “I wasn’t able to get to any of the par-4s in two [shots] so it forced me to develop a good short game if I wanted to shoot any sort of respectable score,” he said. “I was chipping on every single hole because I couldn’t get it to the green, so it was a good base for me. Once I got a bit bigger and stronger it was nice that I had that base of the short game to support my long game once it developed.” Through climbing the ranks of the national junior ladder, including representing Canada at the Junior Open Championship in 2000 in St. Andrews, Scotland, Gillis earned himself an academic and athletic scholarship at Oregon

Mitch Gillis grew up in Williams Lake, honing his golf skills before leaving to attend university in Oregon. State University. Up until his third year at university, Gillis said he never really considered a professional career in the sport. “It was kind of just a transition — it wasn’t planned or anything,” he said. “I just wanted to play good junior golf and get recruited to an American university. Then

in 2006, I started playing really well and had a really hot season.” Gillis won the Oregon Amateur Championship, the Oregon Stroke Play Championship, the PNGA Public Links Championship and the University of Michigan Invitational, beating some of the best golfers in the U.S. along the way. “I sort of came to a realization then,” he said. “I had one more year of school after that and I hadn’t won the BC Amateur or the Canadian Amateur, which I wanted to do before I turned pro.” In 2007 he earned the distinction of BC Amateur Champion and was a quarter-finalist in the Canadian Amateur Championship. At the Canadian Tour’s qualifying tournament that September he placed 16th, earning his Tour Card for the 2008 season. He also graduated with an honours degree in business administration focusing on international business.

Since then, Gillis said he’s seen steady improvement. “One of my goals when I turned pro was that I always wanted to improve year after year, and so far I’ve done that,” he said. “I’m currently in my fifth year and I’ve improved my status and my results have improved along the way.” In 2008, with 90 players keeping their tour cards, Gillis finished 89th. The next year he finished 20th, followed by a 17th-place finish in 2010, including a second-place finish at the Canadian Tour Championship. “That year I also advanced through stage one of the PGA Qualifying School,” he said. “I also went to Europe to play in the European Tour Qualifying School and made it through the first stage there, but missed advancing to the final round by one shot.” Last year Gillis qualified for the final round of the PGA Qualifying School, earning him conditional status in this year’s Web. com Tour, along with playing several Canadian Tour events. “Once again, I’m in a better spot than the year before, but it would have been nice to skip a step in the process and go straight to the PGA Tour,” he said, adding his focus is currently on this year’s PGA Qualifying School in September. “I’m just now getting ready for Q-school,” he said. “I’ve shifted my focus to basically just that — improving my status. This is the last year you can go to the PGA Tour directly from qualifying school. Starting in 2013 Q-school will only get you access to the Tour. Gillis, who currently lives in the Phoenix area, plays his first stage in Beaumont, CA., followed by stage two in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. This year’s final stage will be held in La Quinta, CA. “It’s going to be good,” he said. “I’m excited. I’ve done well at it [Q-school] so it’s an exciting time of year.

Saturday, Sept. 8 Dirty Knobby

Riders dominate at local motocross event Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Ninety-five motocross riders from around the province stormed into Williams Lake Saturday and Sunday to compete in rounds 13 and 14 of the BC Motocross Association North Series. The event, which contributes to ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overall season points totals, saw racers from 150 Mile House, 70 Mile House, Baldonnel, Fort St. James, Horsefly, Houston, Kelowna, Kitimat, Lac La Hache, Prince George, Quesnel, Revelstoke, Smithers, Telkwa, Terrace, Turin, Vanderhoof, Winfield and Williams Lake compete at the local track off Highway 20. Classes ranged from 50cc all the way up to pro, with local riders posting some solid results. Saturday in the 50cc class Cayden Kunka-Vedan finished second, while 65cc racer Marcus Deausy, 8, of 150 Mile House took third. Deausy, in just his second year racing, said he had a blast over the weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling pretty good and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty pumped,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it a lot and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m learning tons [from some of the older riders].â&#x20AC;? In the 85cc class in the 12- to 16-year-old division, Kenneth

Urquhart took second. The Intermediate MX-1 had two local riders finish in the top three â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cole Bernier took first and Kory Ilnicki took third. Meanwhile, in the Intermediate MX-2 event, 150 Mile Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Levi Nelson crossed the finish line in first, while Bernier took second. Nelson, coming off a wrist injury, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to be back on the track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pretty happy with my performance considering I just got back on the bike about a month and a half ago,â&#x20AC;? the 18-year-old said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been awesome. The track is the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen it.â&#x20AC;? In the Junior B division Wyatt

Branch took first, while Jonathan Fluttert finished third. In the Schoolboy division Urquhart placed second, with Ezra Oosting coming in closely behind in third. In the Youth class, for riders under 24 years old, local pro Brock Hoyer took first, while Bernier finished second.

Sunday, local riders posted several more top-three finishes. In the 50cc class, Thomas Kaiser placed second, while Kunka-Vedan finished third. Troy Bell, in the 65cc

class, claimed third. Urquhart had another strong day finishing second in the 85cc 12- to 16-year-old class. Jevin Weinert, in the Beginner MX-2, took second, while Bernier placed second in the Intermediate MX-1 category. In Intermediate MX-2 it was Nelson taking first with Bernier in third (due to injury). Fluttert, in the Junior B class, took second, while Ezra, in the Supermini division, placed third. For the Youth class it was Hoyer once again nabbing the checkered flag, while Nelson claimed third. Mennie went on to take second place in the Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; division Sunday, followed by Samantha Wilde in third.

RCMP golf tourney raises nearly $10,000 Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake RCMP and guests were on the links at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club on Wednesday, Aug. 8 swinging the sticks for the 28th Annual Williams Lake RCMP Charity Golf Tournament. Each year, the Williams Lake RCMP choose a different char-

ity as the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipient. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beneficiaries were the Youth Academy and the Williams Lake army and sea cadets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The Youth Academy] gives Grade 11 students from both 100 Mile House and Williams Lake the opportunity to experience what the training is for an RCMP officer,â&#x20AC;? said Cpl. Tom Erickson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put them up this year at the Columneet-

za dorms and got them up at 5:30 a.m. and put them through the ropes for a week.â&#x20AC;? The tournament itself featured around 115 golfers, who helped raise close to $10,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have quite a large group of RCMP and civilian members that came down from Prince George, too,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great turnout, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great charities.â&#x20AC;? Prizes were also up

for grabs on the day for accomplishing various feats on the golf course. Adding to the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success over

the years, Erickson said, is the outstanding support they receive from the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been amazing this year, again,â&#x20AC;? he

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The help Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got putting this on is amazing.â&#x20AC;? He added the tournament is lots of fun for everyone, and is for a

good cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see the people come out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great turnout.â&#x20AC;?

A talented trio comprised of Sam Tudor, Brent Morton and Marin Patenaude closed off the Performances in the Park summer series in Boitanio Park Aug. 16. Each musician played an individual set during the first half, and then finished up performing together.

Tsilhqotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 gathering will provide the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters with the chance to learn more about Tsilhqotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

Eulachon not just a childhood memory Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The eulachon fishery at Bella Coola is something 34-year-old Megan Moody remembers from her childhood. When she was a kid she and her friends would hang around the stink boxes when the adults were making eulachon grease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could just pick the fish up out of the river because the river was low and the fish were going through the shallow waters and you could collect a bucket yourself,â&#x20AC;? Moody recalls. As a biologist and co-ordinator for the Central Coast First Nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new organization called the Central Coast Indigenous Resource Alliance, Moody works with the nations on different fisheries projects or provides technical support through the organization. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working with the Nuxalk (Bella Coola) and the Wuikinuxv (Rivers Inlet) on eulachon studies this year. The last time there was eula-

chon fishery in and around Bella Coola was 1998, which means there are children who have no memory of the fishery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finding that the younger kids, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been gone 14 years now, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what an eulachon even looks like. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably heard stories about grease and things like that, but never seen it,â&#x20AC;? Moody says. Before the fishery collapsed, people were noticing slight declines, but in 1996 there was a really strong run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The river was black,â&#x20AC;? Moody recalls. There were probably less than that the next couple of years, but locals told Moody the runs always came in cycles, with some years stronger than others. Every four years or so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been a really strong run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What was shocking was that people were out fishing in 1998 and the next year they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there were some stragglers coming in like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing now, but because there were not any large amounts peo-

ple were wondering where they had gone.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been like that ever since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fish it or anything. The measurements are in pounds of fish, instead of the tons they once were.â&#x20AC;? While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not harvestable, the fishery continues to be tracked, she adds. Moody thinks there is a small improvement, although very low. Historically local First Nations in the Nuxalk territory fished for eulachon on 10 local rivers systems. The Bella Coola River was the most fished because the village is located right on the river. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We used to have other village sites throughout the territory where eulachon were fished, but nobody lives there now,â&#x20AC;? Moody explains. During 2005 and 2006, while working on her masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thesis, Moody interviewed local Nuxalk elders about the eulachon fishery and many suggested the shrimp trawl fishery has led to the drastic decline of eulachon, due to the

use of bottom trawlers that captured other species that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not targeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eulachon or ground fish, all sorts of other things get caught when you do an un-selective fishery,â&#x20AC;? Moody says. Through the interviews, she also learned about varying uses for the eulachon grease, including some that were medicinal and others nutritional. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When whooping cough was really bad theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d soak a cloth in eulachon grease and wrap the child in it. It would help bring up the bad phlegm. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard it was used for curing dandruff, the common cold, preserving bread. All these sorts of different uses you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally think of.â&#x20AC;? The fish, she adds, has nutrients that butter doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have. Eulachon are up for a species at risk on the central coast of B.C. Information on upcoming community meetings on the issue can be found at cal-eng.htm.

community Creating pottery a relaxing experience Erin Hitchcock Tribune Staff Writer Christy Richardson has been a hobby potter for about 40 years and, for the first time, has her work featured in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Art Walk. A retired teacher, Richardson taught at Columneetza secondary and the former Anne Stevenson high school. She does both handbuilding and wheelwork creations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of it is functional and some of it is sculptural,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like working with texture and pattern on surfaces.â&#x20AC;? Working the wheel is almost therapeutic, she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relaxing but at the same time highly focused.â&#x20AC;? Richardson, who studied art education at UBC, works in stonewear clay, a mid-range firing variety. When describing her work, she says she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick to a particular theme; rather, she goes in all different directions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a particular form I necessarily am known for,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I keep trying different things and I find that satisfying.â&#x20AC;? Richardson has lived in the Cariboo for 34 years, moving to the

of pleasure from creating clay works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like making things for my family and participating in guild sales when I can. I had work in the Station House in the past but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything in there now.â&#x20AC;? Richardson is quick to note her appreciation

of the Art Walk and says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;turning out to be a whole lot of fun.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really neat to see the diversity of creative work in our community, and also the huge support from so many businesses,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding that on the first day of the Art Walk, she got a passport and went around the city, stopping in at various participating merchants to see all of the other work being presented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Working with clay is a lot of fun and I would encourage anybody who is interested to come out to our potters guild meetings,â&#x20AC;? she says, adding the guild meets at the Cariboo Arts Cen-

Edward “Ed” Turley Edward Emmett Turley died March 4, 2011, in Creston, B.C. Edward was born Sept. 8, 1927, to Gerald and Regina (Stovall) Turley in rural Musselshell County, Mont. He was the oldest of eight of which there were seven boys and one girl. Edward had a long colourful history of ranching, horsemanship, boxing and quick wit, all to the end of his life. He began his first years of formal learning in the Mountain Home school 16 miles south of Musselshell, then attended 6th and 7th grade in Musselshell School proper. He did not tolerate bullies, nor people of an underhanded nature, and was known throughout his life as a defender of an underdog. Edward became interested in boxing while attending Musselshell High School and asked his father if he could attend High School in Roundup in order that he could attend a local boxing club. His parents made arrangements for him to stay with the Rediske and Rath families, among others, in Roundup. He excelled in boxing to a point that not only brought the entire Turley family to Roundup High School - to box - but also drew additional local interest in boxing. Boxing matches during the late 1940s thru the early ‘60s in Roundup drew attendance that matched basketball and football games. Edward enlisted in the Army after graduating from High School. He also boxed and participated in a multi-military force meet. He won to a level that matched him with another, of which the winner would be allowed to participate in the 1948 Olympics. Edward and his match fought brutally the full 15 rounds and both were hospitalized for two months. The families were notified of the outcome and that they both faced possible death. Nonetheless, both survived, however, neither made the Olympic team due to the outcome. Of note is that the opponent of this brutal boxing match recuperated, and was matched in 1950 with a brother of Edward in a similar multi-military boxing match on board ship along the coast of South America. He met him, confirmed his relationship to Edward, and declined the match. While stationed in Panama, he also began corresponding with Mary Katheryn Clark (Katie), a direct descendent of William E. Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition, from Tennessee. Edward continued his correspondence with Katie, met on military leave and within one month they married. Katie and Edward began ranching at the head of Hawk Creek in the Bull Mountains, and started their family consisting of four daughters and three sons. They purchased another ranch north of Pompey’s Pillar on Mill Creek in 1952. Edward was also a member of the Musselshell Rodeo Association and broke horses in addition to ranching. He developed a kindred horse and ranching relationship with his much younger brother Patrick, who was tragically killed in auto accident in 1961. Edward sold his Mill Creek ranch in 1962 and moved his family to the Cariboo region near Williams Lake, B.C. Edward and Katie ranched, raised their children, and gave grand attention to their grandchildren, in this region the remainder of their lives. Edward had a mischievous smile, was quick witted in spite of his many horse and boxing injuries, and a noted prankster. His granddaughters gathered one evening and noted he was hardheaded…in more ways than one. He agreed with a wry smile, and attributed this to his Northern Ireland, County Armagh, ancient land of learning, fighting and recent “troubles,” family heritage. Of particular note is that he was also an enrolled member of the Citizen Band Potowatamie Tribe of Oklahoma from his mother’s side. Edward was predeceased by both parents; and brothers Gerald O’Neil, Turla John “Turla,” Patrick “Pat,” and James Michael “Mike.” Katheryn “Katie,” his soul mate of 61 years, also preceded him, as well as his two beautiful daughters Judy Moon and Teresa Ali. Edward had a lifelong appreciation and fondness for his Uncle John and Aunt Minnie (Burton), along with his five cousins of that family. Mary Cooley of Musselshell and Louise Bell of Cut Bank are the remaining survivors of that family. He is survived by his brothers Francis and Lycurgus and his sister Adele, all of Texas. His surviving children are Marcella (Rod) Spence of Revelstoke, B.C., Ann (Richard) Olesen of Victoria, B.C., Mike (Karen) of Penticton, B.C., Clark (Dayle) of Grand Prairie, A.B., and Pat (Linda) of Campbell River, B.C. He also has 14 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, plus many relatives throughout the USA. The family is holding a celebration of life for their Father on Saturday afternoon August 25th, 2012 at McIntyre Lake. The family would welcome anyone to come share stories and memories. For any further information please call Ann Olesen 250 477-3320 or by email
