Agreement reached on moose hunting Additional moose management measures were announced Thursday for the Tl’etinqox-t’in Territory in the Chilcotin. The B.C. government and the Tl’etinqox-t’in Government Office (Anaham Band) have resolved to immediately implement a joint resource stewardship plan to recover the moose population in the Anaham Range, and mitigate potential causes for their recent decline. While specific elements of a resource stewardship plan are being finalized, the government outlined some aspects of the plan in a press release issued Thursday. They include allowing the B.C. government and the Tl’etinqox to work together with forest industry and wildlife stakeholders to reduce

land use and hunting impacts that have resulted in unusually low moose densities in this area. The ministry and the Tl’etinqox will jointly engage in hunter harvest monitoring, and management of predators and feral horses. In co-operation with forest companies operating in the area, road deactivation plans to manage access to sensitive moose habitat will start without delay. Forest companies have also agreed to schedule their forest harvesting activities to avoid conflict with guide outfitters operating in the area. The Tl’etinqox-t’in Government Office confirms there will be no disruptions to the 2012 Limited Entry Hunt.

The ministry has commissioned an independent analysis of moose management in the Cariboo, and results of that work will help inform future management decisions. Numbers of Limited Entry Hunt authorizations for moose will be re-evaluated for the 2013 season, in line with a reduced annual allowable harvest. The B.C. government and the Tl’etinqox-t’in Government Office also confirm their intention to continue working collaboratively into the future on issues of wildlife and habitat management. “These actions ensure certainty for all those with an interest in wildlife management in the Anaham Range. More importantly they are concrete steps in establishing

the long term sustainability of the moose population in the region,” said Steve Thompson, Minister of Forests, Lands And Natural Resource Operations. Tl’etinqox-t’in Chief Joe Alphonse said the conservation and sustainability of moose is a common concern of all involved. “We need to see moose in our backyards 100 years from now. This has been a long process, and I am heartened that we have come to an agreement. The Tl’etinqox Government Office will not have to resort to actions to block moose hunting activities. The plan announced today addresses the need for specific stewardship strategies that focuses on our Aboriginal traditions and land values.”

Stay focused while driving A 2012 Ipsos Reid survey, conducted on behalf of ICBC, reveals that 44 per cent of respondents believe that driving is a complex task and yet 40 per cent of those who own cell phones admit they’ve used their hand-held phone while driving. This tells us that while drivers recognize the dangers of distracted driving, and the

majority of respondents even consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving, many still make excuses or misunderstand what is and isn’t allowed under the law. The reality is, distracted driving is now the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C., which is why this year’s campaign is focusing on educating

drivers and dispelling some of the common misconceptions. “The ability to connect with anyone at anytime through our mobile phones has led to a serious problem on our roads,” said Shirley Bond, Minister of Justice and Attorney General. “Driving is a complex task that requires our full attention. When

we’re behind the wheel, we have people’s lives in our hands and we owe it to our friends and families to leave our phones alone and focus on the road.” Police are stepping up enforcement across the province and will be checking for distracted drivers this weekend and throughout September. “We see many motor-

Growing up with employment standards In order to raise awareness about workplace rights and responsibilities, the Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government has released a series of information bulletins and factsheets as Labour Day approaches. Among the information notes government says all young workers should understand the basic rules that apply to the world of work. For example there are specific rules that apply to young workers (15 to 24). For example: • Under the occupational health and safety regulation, workers younger than 25 years of age must be given health and safety orientation and training that are specific to the workplace. • Minors (under 19 years of age) may not be employed in places designated “liquor primary”. Where permitted to work, (for exam-

What are employment standards? The Employment Standards Act sets out the minimum standards that apply to most nonunionized workplaces in B.C. The act covers wages, hours of work, breaks, allowable deductions, termination of employment and leaves of absence.

AN APPLE A DAY... When a prescription is refilled, pharmacists are sometimes asked if the drug has to be taken “for the rest of my life”? As we age, it seems we need more medications but it is true that some of the doses of these medications can be reduced later in life or even discontinued altogether. However, no drug should be discontinued without your doctor’s OK and stopping a drug “cold turkey” is not recommended.

Men’s sperm count is sensitive to temperature changes. The higher the temperature, the lower the sperm count. Choice of underwear has a bearing on this. Boxer shorts provide a lower temperature environment than briefs that hold the testicles close to the body. However, briefs are not a male contraceptive. Those nutritional charts on food packages shows sugar content in “grams”. “Grams” is a unit of weight. How many grams in one teaspoonful (a unit of volume)? The answer is 4.2 grams. So if your soft drink contains 35 grams of sugar that’s over 8 teaspoonsful! This gives you a better picture of sugar content. A healthy daily amount of added sugar is 40-50 grams (about 10-12 tsp). While adults should take 10,000 steps per day for good health, the number for children is 12,000 steps daily. With so many alternative activities available to children today... many providing no exercise at all, it’s important to ensure that physical activity is a part of your child’s life every day.

Much is written and discussed today about spirituality. Especially spirituality not connected with any organized religious system like churches, temples, mosques, etc. What is spirituality? Specifically, what is Christian spirituality? Spiritually at the most basic level is seeking and finding meaning in life. It may or may not be connected to any religious organization. Yet, everyone responds to a lesser or greater degree to the spiritual side of their lives. A religious person is not necessarily a spiritual person and a truly spiritual person is not necessarily religious. Some define spirituality as living life with purpose and passion while setting goals consistent with our beliefs and values. Many deeply spiritual people are not connected to a faith community or they can come from a wide range of religious and cultural belief systems. I recall attending a seminar on health and wellness several years ago and the presenter was a deeply spiritual man who talked extensively about the importance of spirituality in good health. Yet he did not believe in the existence of God. Spirituality is broader than going to church and believing in God as most Christians, Jews, Moslems and other religious traditions do. Life in the Cariboo today requires a sensitivity and appreciation for the variety of spiritual paths on which people are travelling. I have learned that we need to be very careful not to limit the spirit of God

PARSONS PEN

BY CAMERON JOHNSTON as he works on human hearts. I recall a delightful experience that happened to me as a young pastor in Nova Scotia when I met a family interested in our church. This family was originally from India coming to Canada via Uganda and England. As this mother of five was preparing to join our church and be baptized, she said to me, “I grew up in a devil worshiping family in India but even as a child I never worshiped the devil.� Through a long chain of events and circumstances including much pain and suffering she was guided by the spirit of God to a full commitment to the Christian faith. Christian spirituality is centered in a Biblical worldview that believes the

world was created good and perfect by a gracious loving God. There was no pain, fear or death in God’s original design. The negative came as our first parents made some poor choices. This began the process that caused the major problems we struggle with including the suffering and death we all live with daily. The good news is that this Creator God provided a way of escape that is revealed and delivered in the person of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, Christian spirituality is centered in a dynamic personal friendship with this Jesus of the New Testament scriptures. All true Christian beliefs and values originate with Jesus who redeemed mankind from the disaster that came from the rebellion of our first parents. The price of this redemption was very expensive for God and included the cruel death of Jesus on the cross, the central focus of all Christians. For Christians, God is interested in more than redemption.He also provides complete healing and transformation. Without a doubt the human condition needs a major makeover. The Biblical worldview provides both redemption and full transformation provided as a free gift to all who will recognize their need and allow the spirit of God to make them a new creature through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

News Falcon’s exit not the last, Clark says

Williams Lake Weekend Friday, August 31, 2012

Tom Fletcher Black Press Premier Christy Clark is planning a preelection cabinet shuffle as early as next week to replace Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon and other ministers who are likely to leave. Falcon announced Wednesday he has stepped down as finance minister and won’t run in the 2013 election, because his wife is expecting a second child, at around the same time as the next B.C. budget is due. “Putting aside the timing associated with the newest addition to our family in February, I genuinely believe the premier requires a finance minister who will prepare a budget and make taxation and spending measures that he or she will be prepared to defend in the upcoming election campaign.” Clark appointed At-

torney General Shirley Bond as acting finance minister, but said it is a short-term arrangement and a new cabinet lineup will be announced “in the coming days” to prepare for the May 2013 election. The second-place finisher in the 2011 B.C. Liberal Party leadership race, Falcon was appointed finance minister and deputy premier by Clark. He has overseen the windup of the harmonized sales tax, which battered the government’s popularity and pushed Gordon Campbell out of the premier’s office. Falcon’s current budget projects that the province will balance

the books again after a string of deficits that was extended to this year by the repayment of a $1.6 billion transition fund from Ottawa for adopting the HST. After being rejected in a province-wide referendum, the tax comes to an end next spring, just as the province is preparing for a scheduled election in May of 2013. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston questioned whether Falcon’s promised balanced budget can be delivered. Natural gas revenues have fallen with the price of gas this year, and Falcon’s planned sale of government assets may not

come in time to generate the needed cash, Ralston said. Education Minister George Abbott, another leadership contender, said Tuesday he will soon make announcement about his political future as well. Energy Minister Rich Coleman’s future has also been the subject of speculation. In his resignation statement, Falcon praised Clark as a “great campaigner and communicator.” He wouldn’t rule out a return to politics at some point. Falcon was first elected MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale in the B.C. Liberal sweep of

News A growing obsession

This summer I took three days away from gardening and used them to go on three garden tours. Good grief, hey? You know you’ve let yourself become a tad consumed when you use your only days away from gardening to look at gardens! Another clue was the afternoon I came in from the garden, plopped down beside Darcy on the couch and started watching a Blue Jays game. Instead of getting caught up in the strikes and runs, I started thinking about how much time they spend playing ball. Unlike hockey, ball season starts at seeding time and continues right through to harvest. The more I thought about it the more unsettled I became until finally I blurted out, “It must suck to be a ball player. How do they find time to garden?” Darcy just stared at me in that way he has that always makes me worry about myself. I realized I have entered a dangerous obsession zone where I think everyone is either doing what I am doing or wants to. My only excuse is gardening not only gives me exercise and stress release, but it provides us with most of our vegetables and berries for the year and it is the subject I use to make part of my living writing for garden magazines. It is both my work and my play. I do believe everyone benefits from a walk in a park or a stroll through a botanical garden. The simple act of taking off your shoes and feeling sand or grass on your bare feet can lift your mood faster than a year’s worth of planting your butt on a therapist’s chair. But while we

SLICE OF LIFE SHANNON McKINNON

all need nature in our lives, we all don’t need to control it. And like it or not, that’s what gardening is. Controlling a piece of earth all the while knowing our little Eden is only borrowed; never bought. It’s kind of like building sand castles. You race around packing water, shaping the sand, creating grand designs and you are incredibly happy; but in the end the tide reclaims your castle – turrets, moats and all. The whole east side of my garden is edged with forest. While I’m racing about with my wheelbarrow, buckets of water, pots of plants, packets of seeds and a head filled with plans, I imagine nature watching my activity with amusement. It sends runner roots of willows and poplars into the perennial beds. It blows seeds in on the wind, while others are woken from decades of slumber by my spade. On summer nights I fall into bed exhausted beyond belief, but pumped with the euphoria of watching my plans slowly come together. Of course, in the end it’s all for nothing. If I walked away from my garden within a month the vegetable garden would be lost to weeds. In a year grass would have a stranglehold on the perennials. In five years only the rugosa roses, peonies and monkshood would

remain as evidence a gardener once passed through. This doesn’t make me sad. I am glad nature wins in the end. When I want something for a difficult spot I try to use material that comes in on its own from the woods; a patch of wild roses or a clump of white yarrow have been granted space in my garden while a robust patch of fireweed and goldenrod lurk along the southern edge. I eye them uneasily as they bubble with energy, no doubt discussing their conquest strategies long into the night. One corner has been completely taken over by bluebells. Every summer I

consider ripping them out, but in the spring they are prettier than any of my pampered spring bloomers. So I suppose the takeover has already begun in a sort of Trojan horse kind of way. Nature is beguiling me with beauty while hiding its robust reclaiming roots from view. No matter. If my whole flower garden turned wild, I wouldn’t mind. I might even prefer it. The vegetable patch, however, is another matter. No matter how gorgeous they might be, if they venture through those gates it’s off with their heads! As for the three garden tours, I was blown away by the green

thumbs quietly working their magic in pockets of the Peace. Despite being in Zone 2b and having one of the hottest, driest, summers on record the gardens were amazing. I didn’t walk away from a single one without a new idea. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing pictures from all twenty gardens at www. peacecountrygardens. com. So come on by, kick off your shoes and treat yourself to some botanical eye candy; no weeding required. Shannon McKinnon is a humour columnist from Northern BC.

Tips for parents on guiding young drivers School is back in session which means our lives and our roads will be busier once again. With all the changes families undergo at this time of year, it makes it even more vi-

tal for parents to chat with their kids about the rules of the road. Younger children often lack the cognitive and physical skills to make safe decisions and with the long summer break, a safety refresher will

help them start the year off right. “In Canada, more children acquire pedestrian-related injuries in the months of September and October than at any other time of year,” says Young Drivers of

Looking for 3 men and 1 mature woman to play characters in “A Skull in Connemara” by Martin McDonagh, Williams Lake Studio Theatre’s rst play of the 2012-2013 season. The story takes place in a yspeck of a town in Ireland’s fabled west, as four lonely, lovable mists dig for the truth - and get so much more. This sidesplitting yarn conjures a macabre mystery packed with merriment, mayhem, and might-be murder that is as full of twists as a shillelagh and as haunting as a whistle in a graveyard.

Canada President Peter Christianson. “Drivers need to be extra cautious, drive defensively and be aware of what is happening 360° around their vehicle at all times.” These safety tips from Young Drivers of Canada will ease the transition of back to school and help both parents and students prepare for the road ahead. 1. Start the Conversation: Encourage new and returning students to always walk, bicycle or drive safely. Plan out their route to school and review
road rules. 2. Text Off: Is your child a distracted walker? Encourage your child to keep their head up and keep the cell phone safely tucked away. Their focus should be on the road and busy intersections. 3. Plan Ahead: Always leave plenty of time for you and your family to get to school – running late can cause aggressive driving behaviors. 4. Scan the Road : Use the ground view-

ing technique to scan under parked cars for the feet of children approaching traffic. 5. Mind the School Bus: Motorists traveling in both directions must stop for a school bus except if the road is divided by a median. 6. Patience is Key: Drivers need to wait for children to complete their crossing before proceeding.  Children can often change their minds. 7. Change lanes early: Be vigilant as many kids ride bicycles on the way to and from school.  Share the road safely and change lanes early to provide these road users with ample space.  8. Reduce Speed: Be aware of school zone signage and reduce speed in school zones. 9. Get in the Zone: If you are driving children to school, drop them off in a safe area away from traffic – most schools have designated drop off zones. 10. Honk and Communicate:  Cover the horn in any doubtful situation so you are ready to warn a child of your presence.

Studying projects to death V

ICTORIA – NDP leader Adrian Dix has announced that one of his first acts as premier would be to withdraw B.C. from the joint review of the Enbridge pipeline proposal from Alberta to Kitimat. The two-year federal-led review will be mostly done by next May, but Dix proposes to start a new provincial assessment to examine at the B.C. portion. He doesn’t know how much it would cost, and under questioning he all but admitted the intention is to study the pipeline to death. Fresh from a summer tour of the pipeline route to reaffirm solidarity with its opponents, Dix is hardly in a position to consider anything but maximum resistance. As Premier Christy Clark did in her showdown with Alberta over benefits, Dix hinted that provincial permits for river and wildlife crossings would be made as expensive as possible, if not refused. The same fate awaits the Kinder Morgan plan to twin the existing Trans-Mountain oil pipeline to Burnaby. Dix left the impression that he would undo the years of work that have gone into bringing some rational sense to environmental approvals that can be, and have been, dragged out for years. The B.C. hearings would provide another platform for opponents, and more complaints to justify refusal at the provincial level, to go along with court cases and direct-action protests. Speaking of which, the frontal assault by agitators at the federal Enbridge hearings has mostly petered out. After 4,000-odd people were signed up to speak, most didn’t bother, and some hearings were cancelled. Apparently slacktiv-

B.C. VIEWS TOM FLETCHER

ists such as “Jonathan L. Seagull” and “Cave Man” didn’t make it out of their Vancouver basement suites to tell the panel oil is bad. Professional environmentalists are now wringing their hands over Ottawa’s decision to leave smaller-scale reviews to the province. This means, for example, that there won’t be a duplicate federal review of the urgently needed refit of the John Hart Dam on the Campbell River. One reader suggested that environmental pioneer Roderick Haig-Brown is still spinning in his grave over the damming of this legendary salmon river. Perhaps, but that was in 1947. Does it make sense today to lard pointless bureaucracy onto a reconstruction that replaces wooden pipes and provides earthquake protection, without expanding river impact? NDP environment critic Rob Fleming hammered away at the B.C. Liberals about this in the spring, reminding them that Auditor General John Doyle had exposed a lack of resources in the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, even before Ottawa’s changes. Fleming makes it sound like a huge new burden has been dumped on B.C. False. Provincial assessment already must be done with the participation of Fisheries and

Oceans Canada, Transport Canada, the provincial ministries of natural resources and energy and mines, and of course aboriginal communities. This is why it’s so long and expensive. And don’t be fooled into believing that a federal review would go out and count the tadpoles and caribou again. It’s only the desk jobs that have proliferated. There weren’t just two levels of duplicate review, but three. Earlier in their mandate, the B.C. Liberals exempted major projects such as mines and energy generation from local government control, citing the “provincial interest” similar to the federal authority over projects that cross provincial borders. I agree with the NDP that B.C. environmental assessment needs more resources, in particular to do

the follow-up on approved projects, as called for by the auditor general. Forest management needs

more money too. All the more reason not to waste resources on political gestures.

Students may need a little help School is back in session next week and with the end of summer break we remind motorists to take extra care as children are out and about coming and going excitedly to class. Teachers will be in schools on Tuesday, Sept. 4 but students don’t return until Wednesday, Sept. 5, then only for a half day. Students will be in school prior to 9 a.m. for grade assemblies and home room registration, and will be released for the day at approximately 11:30 a.m. so be on the

look-out for students and school buses earlier than usual. People with a little extra money to spare can help out these parents by supporting the Staples School Supply Drive and the Salvation Army’s school supplies program. Locally the Salvation Army is accepting donations of school supplies for children and is offering four complete changes of clothing and a pair of shoes to children of lowincome families that qualify for the weekly hamper program.

Staples has its seventh annual School Drive, with hopes of raising $6,500 to help local children purchase school supplies. Each year Staples partners with School District No. 27 to help create a fair playing field for all children attending school. Many businesses and customers have donated. By Aug. 29 $3,400 had been raised. Donations will be accepted up until Sept. 15. Staples program co-ordinator Melissa Phung says 100 per cent of the monies raised stays local.

Farm labour laws tighten Government is committed to keeping British Columbia’s farm workers safe reports Jason Macnaughton communications director Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government. The report is part of the information campaign launched by government as Labour Day approaches. • British Columbia’s employment standards and occupational health and safety regulations for agriculture are comparable with other jurisdictions in Canada and are backed up by some of the highest penalties in the country. • B.C.’s labour laws and workplace safety standards apply to all workers regardless of their nationality or immigration status. How the Employments Standards Branch protects farm workers • The Employment Standards Branch Agriculture Compliance Team visits farms to ensure farm owners, producers and Farm Labour Contractors (FLCs) are complying with provincial employment standards legislation. If employers are found in contravention of the act, mandatory escalating penalties apply. • During these visits, which take place over the course of the harvesting season, workers are interviewed and given information about Employment Standards. In 2011 alone, Employment Standards representatives spoke directly with approximately 2,900 agricultural workers and performed 74 site visits. Farm worker safety in

B.C. • WorkSafeBC farm inspection reports have more than doubled in the last decade- from 370 reports in 2000 to 954 reports in 2011. • The injury rate* in agriculture has dropped from 3.6 in 2002 to a rate of 2.3 in 2011. That’s on par with the province’s overall injury rate of 2.36. • Number of injuries per 100 person years of employment. Response to 2007 van crash in Abbotsford • In 2007, the B.C. government created the InterAgency Agriculture Compliance Committee to ensure an integrated approach to farm worker safety. Find out more at: http:// www.gov.bc.ca/farmworkers/ • In 2008, tougher provisions were enacted under the Employment Standards Act to help ensure farm worker safety. This legislation: • Prohibits growers from using unlicensed farm labour contractors. • Allows for the cancellation or suspension of a farm labour contractor’s licence if they violate relevant WorkSafeBC and/or motor vehicle laws and regulations. • Makes farm labour contractors liable for the costs paid by government to provide safe alternative transportation for stranded workers when an unsafe vehicle is taken out of service during roadside inspections. • There were 17 recommendations directed at government as a result of the coroners’ inquest into the

2007 van crash: • Eleven recommendations are complete. • Alternative action was taken on three recommendations. • Work is ongoing on three more. • A chart outlining these responses can be read at: http://www.gov.bc.ca/farmworkers/attachments/jury_ recommendations.pdf Response to 2008 mushroom farm incident in Langley. • Immediately following the 2008 mushroom farm tragedy, WorkSafeBC inspected every mushroom farm in the province to make sure they were operating safely. • Since the incident, the number of agricultural inspection reports issued by WorkSafeBC has increased by 58 percent (605 reports in 2008, 954 in 2011). • Anyone with questions about their rights or a complaint against their employer under the Employment Standards Act can get help from the Employment Standards Branch. Help is available in person, online or through a toll-free number (1 800 6633316). • Employment Standards assistance is available over the phone in a wide variety of languages.

Where to go, what to do.

Paradise cheap nights Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Some communities have Cheap Tuesdays at their movie theatres. During September and October and possibly beyond, Williams Lake will have cheap movies on tap for the late show Sunday through Thursday nights. If the promotion proves successful, Paradise Cinema’s owner David Hothi says he may be able to convince distributors to continue

the program. While other communities have Cheap Tuesday movie offerings, these events often come with crowded theatres, and patrons having to be turned away because there isn’t enough room to seat everyone. As an alternative to Cheap Tuesdays, Hothi says Paradise Cinemas in Williams Lake has been negotiating with distributors for several months on this new program of late show film offerings.

“The Paradise Cinemas in Williams lake has been successful in negotiating an agreement with film distributors to  enable us  to discount the late shows,” Hothi says. “Starting Sept. 1 to Oct. 31 the community will be able to take advantage of showings after 9 p.m. at a discounted admission of $6.” He says the discounted admission will be in effect for the late shows Sunday to Thursday. A $2 surcharge will apply to all 3D showings.

The regular film prices are $9 for a regular film and $11 for a 3-D film which still provides a substantial bargain on both offerings. “We hope this allows our valuable movie-going patrons and the community an affordable alternative,” Hothi says. “This new price is lower than Cheap Tuesdays offered  in other  communities and will give  our patrons  additional opportunities  to see the movie of their choice rather  than just the one

NEW PROJECT

years, this is a familyfocused, all-ages event aimed at celebrating

and understanding more about the highly significant Horsefly sockeye salmon run. The obvious next question is, “How many salmon will there be?” 2012 is the fourth year in the Horsefly’s sockeye cycle, which means this is likely the smallest run of the four. Nonetheless, early September is expected to be prime viewing time for the sockeye that make this remarkable journey from the Pacific Ocean back to the river of their birth. For more information, call Maureen at 250-6203505 or Brandi at 250620-0572, or visit www. horseflyriver.ca.

Concert raises funds for Operation Smile Jessie Rajala Chapin, the Rachel Walker Trio, and The Wittenbergs will be in concert at the Alliance Church in Williams Lake next week to help raise funds for Operation Smile. The fundraising concert will be held Friday, Sept. 7 from 7:30 to about 9:30 p.m. at the Alliance Church at 261 Third Avenue South just past the Paradise Cinemas. Admission is by donation and there will be free refreshments and home baking provided, says Ken McKellar. A raffle will also be held. All of the performers will be presenting their own original music, says Rachel Walker. The Rachel Walker Trio consisting of Ray Chadwick, Rachel Walker, and Michael Fait was formed six years ago. The band creates light, lively, and effervescent music and has put out two albums — The Best of Zest, Volume 1 and The Best of Zest, Volume 2.

Michael Fait (left) and Ray Chadwick of the Rachel Walker Trio will be in concert for Operation Smile next week. Tribune file photo “We are really excited to be playing for such a worthy cause,” says Walker. Jessie Rajala Chapin and her family recently returned from service in Afghanistan. Chapin teaches voice, performs and writes music and is the retired conductor of Quintet Plus choir.

The Wittenbergs are a youth gospel band formed in 2008 and comprised of brothers Isaac Steward on acoustic guitar/lead vocals, Jesse Steward on bass guitar, Jacob Steward on acoustic/ electric guitar and vocals, and Seth Steward on drums and percus-

sion. Operation Smile provides restorative operations for children in developing countries born with cleft lip/palate. “$240 puts a smile on one child’s face,” McKellar says. For more on Operation Smile go to www.operationsmile. org/canada

Safety Tips: • Since it is recommended by the Public Health Agen-cy 23 of Canada that babies sleep in their backs, it is important 30 to have “tummy time” to help with overall physical development. • Place a blanket on the floor and lay your baby on their stomach. The floor is the safest place to lay your baby when awake.

• Talk to your baby about what you are doing with the book and seeing in the book as 16 you read. • With both you and your baby lying on your tummies, enjoy sharing a book like Hello! Peter Rabbit. • Point to pictures in the book to excite your ba-by into reaching forward and touching the book.

Harvest Fair coming up Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer There is nothing quite like wandering through a fall fair to inspire one to get a little closer to nature, even if you are like me and don’t particularly like the feel of dirt under your nails. I find my own responses to the art of gardening somewhat perplexing, even to myself, since I have spent many years in my youth at a potter’s wheel oblivious to the clay under my nails. I have also spent many hours toiling away sewing by hand and getting needles stuck under my nails. But I digress. Even if you are like me with an aversion to digging in the dirt, there are so many more ways to participate in a fall fair than by gardening. You can participate, volunteer, or just enjoy the view. I love to wander the main exhibit hall looking at the colourful flowers and garden produce all neatly laid out for the judges and the amazing array of cakes, pies, glistening bottles of wine, canned fruit and vegetables, translucent honey, and home crafts such as quilts, photographs, knitted baby outfits, crocheted blankets, and delightful children’s art. And a stroll through the animal barns usually turns up something unique such as a fancy

rabbit or unusual bird. The 36th Annual Williams Lake Harvest Fair is coming up Sept. 8 and 9 and organizers are encouraging people to enter their favorite things for exhibit and of course be there for all the fun, even if they don’t have an exhibit to share. Volunteering is another way people can enjoy the event. “We can always use some extra help,” says fair president Tammy Tugnum. “We have had several new members this year and that is why we have so many new things to do at the fair. “Fresh people, fresh perspective.  We are striving to bring a quality event to everyone in Williams Lake and the Coast Chilcotin!  Lots of fun, new things to see and do this year.  New food vendors, new craft stuff for the kids, new entertainers and lots of favourites returning as well.”  The fair takes place in most venues at Stampede Park. On the out-door stage next to the main exhibit hall in the Curling Club, Tugnum says they will be hosting local entertainers both days of the fair.  The line up will feature Willow, Dynamic Downfall, Rachel Walker, Orin Barter, Nitehawks (CreeShu), Lava Lamps and magician Clinton W. Gray.

The Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association is bringing their annual Chili Cook-Off to the Harvest Fair on Saturday, Sept. 8. The Chili Cook-Off will be located outside next to the Curling Club  in Stampede Park.  “For a $5 fee you can taste the chili  entries and vote for the best chili in the Cariboo!” Tugnum says. Tugnum says the Curling Club exhibit hall will once again be featuring an amazing quilt show as well as the canning, baking, children’s exhibits, photography, flowers, veggies, wine, seniors’ section, knitting, arts and crafts and assorted demonstrations including by the Spinners and Weavers on the Saturday.  “The popular caricaturist Ted Couling will be joining us this year both days of the fair,” Tugnum says. “If you are willing to wait in line your paid gate entry entitles you to a complimentary caricature from Ted.” On Sunday Wise Owl Toys is setting up a craft table in the curling rink for the kids who will have a chance to make and take a great new  craft item home, Tugnum says. Representatives from the Strong Start program will also be entertaining toddlers and younger children on Saturday, Sept. 8 and

The Beef Show is on Saturday, Sept 8 in the Indoor Trail Riders arena, along with the sheep, goats and other assorted livestock entries. The BC Pro Bull Riding Finals go each day at 2 p.m. and the Kids Wild Horse Ride is featured each day during the intermission of the Bull Riding.  Anyone who wants to enter the Kids Wild Horse Race should contact Jason Martin at 250-296-9088. Entries for this event close Sept. 4.  These events

are in the Stampede Rodeo Arena. There will also be a Little Britches Jackpot Rodeo each day of the fair, Saturday, Sept. 8 and Sunday Sept. 9 starting each morning at 9 a.m., ending shortly before the bull riding starts at 2 p.m. Entries for the Little Britches Jackpot Rodeo had to be in by Wed.

This three-bedroom charmer, designed for a lot that slopes to the back, includes an unďŹ nished basement that will provide room for future expansion. The covered entry leads to a foyer with a coat closet on the right. To the left, a den or third bedroom features french doors that open onto the veranda at the front of the home. A two-piece powder room is conveniently located nearby. Directly ahead is the great room, with a dramatic vaulted ceiling, as well as a gas ďŹ replace. Floor-toceiling windows overlook a sundeck and the back garden. The dining area also overlooks the back garden, and sliding glass doors open to the sundeck. The kitchen is separated from the great room by an archway, and from the dining area by a work island and eating bar, so the cook will never feel isolated. A roomy pantry is located at one end of the kitchen, and the L-shaped counter conďŹ guration will save steps. The master suite occupies its own built-out area, accessible through both a doorway and an arch, and features a vaulted ceiling. The ensuiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soaker tub has a tiled surround and its own window, for a touch of spa-like luxury, in addition to double basins and a shower stall. A roomy walk-in closet completes the amenities. The second bedroom overlooks the side garden and is adjacent to a three-piece bath. The nearby linen closet serves both the master suite and the second bedroom.

The laundry room, where access to the double garage allows it to double as a mud room, includes a coat closet. The broom cupboard is situated near the laundry room entrance. Ceilings measure nine feet high throughout. Exterior ďŹ nishes include horizontal wooden siding, with shingles and decorative woodwork in the gables. Wooden pilasters with stone bases set off the veranda, and stone accents ďŹ&#x201A;ank the garage doors. This home measures 42 feet wide and 65 feet, six inches deep for a total of 1744 square feet. Plans for design 1-3-646 are available for $664 (set of 5), $745 (set of 8) and $792 for a super set of 10. Also add $30.00 for Priority charges within B.C. or $55.00 outside of B.C.
