You would never guess that these fellows have both been collecting old age pensions for a good number of years if you had seen them together in this wagon (on Saturday afternoon) thundering down the West Fraser Road at breakneck speed. Their hurried pace suggested that they may have been running late to a very important date when, in fact, there was no urgency but there was a function. Nonetheless they had this fine looking pair of grey horses on the run, which made for a show-stopping grand entrance at a surprise 80th birthday party celebration. By the time the wagon driver Roy Mulvahill delivered his good friend Hank Krynen to his own front yard (Fraser River frontage, past Fraser River Ranch, toward Quesnel) however, the cat was well and truly out of the bag, so birthday-honouree Krynen had decided to add a little surprise (and humour) of his own by donning a curly black wig topped with a straw bonnet. About 75 friends and family waited to celebrate the milestone birthday; the gathering was orchestrated by his wife Julie; son Andrew Krynen (Seattle, Wash.); and daughter Jo Krynen (Williams Lake) and her husband Andrew Cuthell; and a host of family and friends. It was a perfect Cariboo fall day, sunny and warm and nearly, bug-free. Liz Twan photo

Councils call for pot decriminalization Tom Fletcher Black Press After a passionate debate and a close vote, delegates to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention passed a motion Wednesday calling on the federal government to decriminalize marijuana. The UBCM placed major emphasis on the debate this year, staging a debate Monday featuring former B.C. attorney general Geoff Plant, in favour of loosening pot laws, and University of the Fraser Valley criminologist Darryl Plecas opposed. After a lineup of speakers on the impact of marijuana grow ops on communities and crime impact, a show of hands by hundreds of delegates supported the call for decriminalization.

Metchosin councillor Moralea Milne reminded delegates that Plant termed pot prohibition “a disastrous and expensive failure of public policy.” She said more than 500,000 B.C. residents have smoked marijuana, but she doesn’t support its use. “Personally I’d rather have a martini, and and I’m allowed to, because we changed that very wrong prohibition stance that we had,” Milne said. Okanagan-Similkameen area director Tom Siddon, a former federal cabinet minister, said his local police reject decriminalization. “I think we’ve been frying too many brains,” Siddon said. “It’s going to aggravate the temptation of young people to move from marijuana, which may well be more harmless than a few bottles of beer, to being hooked on heroin, cocaine and

the chemical designer drugs.” Prince George city councillor Brian Skakun drew laughter with his comment: “I tried it when I was younger, I turned out OK.” Turning serious, he said the costs extend to police and courts weighed down with marijuana cases rather than “real criminals.” Abbotsford councillor Henry Braun agreed with Siddon. “We produce about 1.5 million pounds of marijuana in British Columbia,” Braun said. “We consume about 185,000 pounds, so the vast majority of marijuana is being exported to the U.S. and other places.” Port Moody councillor Bob Elliott said his “quaint, safe city” has seen three gang-related murders in the past six months. He pleaded for support for decriminalization.

Coquitlam councillor Terry O’Neill called decriminalization “the worst of all worlds,” protecting people from simple possession charges while leaving large-scale growing and sales in the hands of criminals. Nelson councillor Robin Cherbo said sparing young recreational users from prosecution is worth it, and even outright legalization won’t stop the criminal trade as long as pot remains illegal in the U.S. Cariboo Regional District director Joan Sorley reminded delegates that grow ops are destructive to communities and dangerous to police and fire departments. “They’re huge operations,” Sorley said. “If we decriminalize it, we take away the tool that the RCMP has to try and shut them down and help keep our neighbourhood safe.”

Premier’s chief resigns Tom Fletcher Black Press Ken Boessenkool, Premier Christy Clark’s chief of staff, has resigned after eight months in the premier’s office. “Earlier this month I was involved in an incident where I acted inappropriately,” Boessenkool said in a resignation letter released by the premier’s office Monday morning. “I was wrong, regretted my behaviour very much and immediately and unconditionally apologized. “Notwithstanding my genuine apology and sense of regret, and following my meeting with you earlier today, I tender my letter of resignation as your chief of staff effective immediately.” Clark has appointed Dan Doyle, chairman of the BC Hydro board of directors, to serve as acting chief of staff. Clark told reporters in Vancouver she can’t comment on the circumstances that led to Boessenkool’s departure, because of privacy laws that apply to all employers. She said she heard about an incident two weeks ago and after it was investigated, she asked for his resigna-

tion. There has been no suggestion of any criminal conduct, Clark said. In his letter, Boessenkool said: “This will give me a chance to return to Calgary to be with my family — who I have also let down — and from whom I have been separated on a weekly basis for most of the last eight months.” Boessenkool was hired by the premier’s office in January after serving as a senior adviser to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He replaced Mike McDonald, who moved to a senior staff role with the B.C. Liberal Party. In recent years Boessenkool has worked for consulting firms Hill and Knowlton Canada and GCI Group Canada. The federal lobbyist registry shows a long list of former clients, including pipeline company Enbridge Inc., oil sands producer Suncor Energy Inc., mining giant Rio Tinto, the Bank of Nova Scotia and TASER International Inc. Boessenkool also formed a group called the Alberta Blue Committee, devoted to maintaining a united right in a province where the upstart Wildrose Alliance Party has challenged the Progressive Conservative dynasty.

Cities get more say on BC Transit Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government will ask local communities to nominate directors for the BC Transit board, in an effort to improve communication on bus service changes and expansions. Transportation Minister Mary Polak announced Tuesday that communities will also have the option of setting up regional transit commissions, similar to

the one in place in Greater Victoria. The recommendations follow a review of BC Transit administration, sparked by complaints that the provincial agency was arbitrarily changing service and costs after municipal budgets were set. “We are also making sure that BC Transit provides sufficient notice to local governments of any service adjustments, along with the type of information local governments

need to make timely budget decisions,” Polak said. Joe Stanhope, chair of the Regional District of Nanaimo, praised the review and BC Transit’s efforts to give communities more say. It was Stanhope’s complaints about a doubling of management fees and the proposed withdrawal of new buses from the Nanaimo service that provoked the review. BC Transit CEO Manuel Achadinha said there

AN APPLE A DAY... It’s important to take care of your feet. The human foot consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, many muscles, ligaments and tendons as well as thousands of nerve endings. The type of shoe you choose for your feet is very important. Buy the best shoes you can afford. It’s a myth that you have to “break in” new shoes. A new shoe should feel so good, you’ll want to walk out of the store with them on. This is the time of year we start hearing about flu and flu shots. Our immune systems are pretty tough but each winter it gets challenged by the latest flu virus. It’s easy to help our immune systems fight the flu by getting a flu shot each year. While not 100% effective, it certainly reduces the chance of getting the flu. The origin of the birth control pill began with Margaret Sanger. Born in 1879, she was an American nurse, sex educator and birth control activist. In the early 1950s, she asked researcher Dr. Gregory Pincus to develop a birth control pill. With his work and others, it led to the 1957 approval of Enovid, giving women more reliable control over their fertility for the first time in history. We’re not sure if blonds really have more fun but they do have more hair. Blondes average about 140,000 hair follicles, brunettes average 108,000 while redheads have about 80,000. By the way, hair grows about 6 inches (15cm) per year. Levels of service vary from one pharmacy to another. If you are looking for a pharmacy to feel good about, give us a try.

has already been progress on new regional transit authorities. The Kootenay region has nine different bus systems, but has established a committee that could lead to a regional service. The provincial review identified the Okanagan and Central Fraser Valley as other areas that should consider amalgamating. The ministry will develop a policy for intercity transit routes that will focus on shorter trips and

timing for commuters, Polak said, while leaving longer bus service to Greyhound and other private bus lines. Polak said the municipalities in the Greater Victoria Transit Commission remain split on whether they should transfer their service to the Capital Regional District. The government will extend their ability to nominate commission members, which are now restricted to mayors of key communities.

-JWJOH'SFFJOUIF-PWFPG(PE The good news about Jesus Christ that flows out of the extravagant love of God is almost unbelievable. God first revealed his love for us at creation when he shared life with us in a perfect and enjoyable environment. Then our first parents fell into sin and needed to be saved from selfishness and rebellion and all the pain, grief, guilt and death that came with it. God again demonstrated his extravagant love by sending Jesus to pay the price for our sin and to redeem us. The vital question is, how do we access the redemption and healing that God has already provided for everyone through the death of Jesus? Below is a simple, powerful and practical plan that will give you all the basics on how to accept Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grace for both redemption and transformation. Anyone can live free in the love of God even in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult and challenging world. Once you recognize your need for help from God, consciously and deliberately invite God to help you. Simply say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;God help me, I want you in my life. I am accepting your forgiveness for my rebellion and sin. I am trusting you to do for me what I cannot do on my own.â&#x20AC;? By faith, go to the cross of Jesus and claim your inheritance as a child of God by expressing faith in the amazing gift of Jesus and His finished work of redemption on the cross.

BY CAMERON JOHNSTON Here is a simple faith statement that will help you to daily express your trust in the saving work of Jesus. Say out loud or silently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you, Father, that despite the awareness of my sinfulness and humanity today, as I look at the cross, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just in awe of the fact that you see me just as perfectly righteous as Jesus, because though He knew no sin, He permitted Himself to be made sin on my behalf and to suffer the death that I deserve. Thank you Father.â&#x20AC;? Secondly, consciously and deliberately invite the Holy Spirit to make you a new creature and give you the mind of Christ. (helpful Bible

verses, Psalm 51:10; Romans 7:25; Philippians 2:5). Invite and allow God to give you the gift of transformation by faith. Here is what will happen. When you consent, Jesus will so identify Himself with your thoughts and goals, so blend your heart and mind into conformity to His will, that when obeying Him you will be doing what you want to do. Thirdly, daily take some quiet time (5 to 60 minutes) to worship, praise and thank God for forgiveness, healing and the perfect righteousness of Christ. When you take time to pray and study the word of God you grow spiritually in His grace. Fourthly,consciously and deliberately rest and relax in Jesus and as a child of the King ask for the needs of your day. This is where we begin enjoying a bit of heaven on earth. Finally, be alert to and act on the new divine impulses and the directions of the Holy Spirit in your life throughout your day. True character development, is when we turn over control of our life to God and make decisions and take actions where Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will is our #1 priority. The result is enjoying a daily humble and peaceful walk with God even in the midst of crisis. My challenge is start today. It works and you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Opinion Pickle making turns dangerous

Williams Lake Weekend Friday, September 28, 2012


f you were asked to jot down the top 10 dangerous ways to spend your weekend, making pickles probably wouldn’t come to mind. Well, I’m here to tell you otherwise. I made pickles on Saturday night and almost bit the green wiener. Something — when you pause to think about it — that would look eerily similar to a dill pickle. But I digress. Here’s what happened. Dusk was falling as I got down to my last six jars of cucumbers and realized I was almost out of dill. “I’m just running out to the garden,” I told Darcy, who was watching TV. “Watch the stove.” “Huh? Yeah, OK,” he replied absently. Grabbing a pair of scissors I sprinted off the deck and ran up the slope to the upper garden. I recently expanded the sloped portion into terraced vegetable beds and even as I ran, I was admiring my handiwork instead of looking where I was going. I was almost on top of my herb patch before I focused on the object of


my quest … dill blossoms. When I did, all thoughts of pickles, dill and terraced vegetable beds vanished. Standing next to the herb patch stood a bear. An enormous, black, bear. Had I been looking where I was going when I left the house I would have seen the bear while still only steps from the safety of our back door. As it were I was now caught in the open with only a small pair of dull herb scissors to protect me. This is how life goes. One minute you’re making pickles and the next you’re in one. Darcy, who I strongly suspected hadn’t been listening to me when I left, would no doubt wander out to the kitchen during the commercial break, see the pot of brine simmering

on the stove sans wife and wonder where I had gone. Then the sight of all those freshly canned pickles would make him hungry for a sandwich. He would never guess a hundred feet from his left elbow a bear was contemplating his wife in the exact same way he was considering the package of Havarti he had just unearthed from the fridge. The only difference was the Havarti didn’t scream.\ Anyone who has read my column for any length of time knows I suffer from acute bear phobia. Coupled with my love for the outdoors I have armed myself with all the cautionary information necessary to survive bear encounters. In the case of a black bear it is important to come across as predator, not prey. You don’t want to challenge the bear, but you don’t want to run like a fat, juicy, rabbit neither. So what did I do

when faced with the object of my nightmares? I screamed so loud they heard me two districts away and then … well, I ran. Just like a loud, juicy rabbit on steroids. In my defence, I expect to see bears in the woods, but not in my garden right by the house. I hate that the bear has intruded on my sanctuary, but that’s what happens when you choose to live in the country. The bear called this home long before we did. The question is, now what? I used to pack pepper spray until I had an unfortunate incident where I was testing the spray can and accidentally got some pepper on my fingers which I then managed (don’t ask) to rub into my own eyes. After that I decided I would rather take my chances. A friend who knows someone who is legendary for hiking in bear country once told me the best way to keep bears

off you is to make a trio of “Whoop, whoop, whoops” every 10 minutes or so. For the next few days I whooped it up in my garden until I went hoarse, no doubt alarming the neighbours no end. A good thing that came of it was I finally got the bee hives fenced in, something that should have been done three years ago. Why is it we so often wait for something to almost happen before we do something to prevent it? As for the pickles, I made Darcy stand look out while I returned to the herb patch for the dill. Because, when it’s all said and done, pickles still need to be made. I’m calling them Bear Pickles and everyone better like them. Shannon McKinnon is a humour columnist from Northern BC.

Pool consultations coming up The second round of public engagement regarding the Sam Ketcham Pool in Williams Lake will take place from Oct. 11 to 13 at several locations around the city. Consultants from Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants Ltd. (PERC) have been contracted to develop the pool feasibility study and will be setting up booths to engage with community members. They will showcase the new concept for the possible renovation of the Sam Ketcham Pool that has been modified based on information gathered

during the last round of public consultations this past June. This is an opportunity for community members to provide their opinions and feedback to the consultants and have ongoing dialogue with them. An opportunity for online comment is also being developed and will be launched in the near future. All interested members of the community are encouraged to visit the following locations on Oct. 12 and 13 or attend the public open house that will be held at the Cariboo Memorial Complex. Public open house: Thursday, Oct. 11 from 7

to 8 p.m. at the Gibraltar Room in the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

The h City off Williams ll Lake Water Division will be conducting cleaning and flushing of water reservoirs and mains starting Monday October 1, ending October 26, 2012. This annual maintenance is required to ensure water quality meets Drinking Water guidelines. The areas that will be affected are: South Lakeside, North Lakeside, Mackenzie Avenue from Highway 97 South to the Glendale area, the downtown core up to Comer Street, and the Golf Course. Residents may experience a slight discoloration of their tap water but running a tap for a short period of time will clear this up. All inquiries can be directed to the City of Williams Lake Water Division at 392-1785. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Friday, September 28, 2012 Williams Lake Weekend

• Publisher/Sales Lisa Bowering • Editor Erin Hitchcock

Published by Black Press 188 N. 1st Avenue Williams Lake BC, V2G 1Y8

Swapping sociology for socket sets P

remier Christy Clark’s latest employment announcement set the tone for one of the big issues in the 2013 election. Flanked by aircraft technician students at BCIT in Burnaby, Clark announced a  $75-million  program to upgrade aging trade and technical school facilities and hire instructors. And she did it with some pointed criticism of the career path chosen by many of today’s high school students. Clark introduced a student electrician, the first woman to win the senior technology education award at her high school, who then went on to get a bachelor’s degree in English and sociology. No job, so she went to BCIT. Her message was clear. The government’s pre-election budget is going to shift priorities to the huge number of skilled trades jobs that are already going begging in the north. More students will get started in high school, instead of being subsidized to wander around and find themselves with an unfocused university degree that still leaves them in need of practical skills. Shop upgrades were announced for trades training in Prince George, Kelowna and Greater Victoria. There will be new student financial aid, but it will be tied to skill programs the economy needs now.


And with the government’s financial situation, you can bet that sociology, women’s studies and the rest of the dead-end programs dear to the hearts of last year’s Occupy campers will feel the pinch. The B.C. Liberal skills training push was partly inspired by last year’s “inequality” protest, after Dawson Creek Mayor Mike Bernier waded into the Occupy Vancouver squat to hand out business cards. They need cooks and labourers as well as pipefitters up there these days, and that’s before the B.C. gas patch goes into a huge expansion for Asian exports. A version of Kevin Falcon’s “welfare air” idea to move unemployed recipients north was included in last week’s announcement by Clark and her jobs czar, Pat Bell. Called “Job Match,” it’s a  $2.9-million  pilot program in the Peace region. It will deliver basic education

and work boots for people in that region before anyone will be flown up from Nanaimo or Nelson. Cruising along at nearly 50 per cent in the polls, the NDP have also put a heavy emphasis on post-secondary. But they’re still playing to the urban Occupy crowd, with a promise of a tax on banks to fund student grants. Instead of providing loan relief after successful completion, they’re going to

hand out money at the front end, just like they did in my student days. My experience as a student, a job seeker and a parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We already have far too much of that, and I think most students today would be better off with a bigger debt and a well-paying job.

As the new trades plan was being rolled out (and mostly ignored by the Vancouver media), former finance minister Colin Hansen announced he’s retiring. It was Hansen who started the push for skills training back in 2008, emphasizing that there will be a million new jobs open by 2019, 600,000 of them due to retiring baby boomers. Hansen made a sales trip  to snowy Toronto to launch advertis-

ing to lure people to B.C. That effort is being revised with a series of interprovincial and international trips, because even if all 650,000 high school students graduate and go to work in B.C. from now to 2019, it won’t be enough to fill all the jobs on the horizon.

Where to go, what to do. Connect Parent Group workshops start Oct. 11 Sheila Cohen Special to the Tribune Do you sometimes wonder and worry about your child’s behaviour? Concerned about your relationship with your child? Feel like you just don’t know what to do? Past methods have focused on controlling the behaviour. Many parents and caregivers have struggled with this as it does not produce the results they hoped for. The Connect Parent Group is a series of workshops in Williams Lake that takes a different approach than most other parenting groups. Rather than focusing

on behavioural management techniques, the Connect Parent Group focuses on enhancing the building blocks of attachment, improving the parents’ ability to reflect before acting, and adjust their feelings so they respond more constructively to conflict. The series of free 10 one hour sessions is delivered over 10 weeks. Parents watch roleplays presented by two facilitators that open new choices for responding to their adolescent’s difficult behaviour. Parents learn, for example, that conflict is part of attachment and is particularly acute during times, such

as the transition through adolescence. Parents learn to ‘step back’ in emotionally charged situations, recognize and modify their own feelings, while considering the possible meanings behind their adolescent’s behaviour. Throughout the sessions parents are also encouraged to reflect upon their own experiences — when they were adolescents as well as their present circumstances. The groups are lead by trained and supervised mental health professionals who work hard to understand the challenges that parents and caregivers face.

Helping parents feel more knowledgeable in these areas helps them understand their adolescent’s behaviours and needs. This allows parents to keep their emotions in check when dealing with difficult situations and use parenting strategies that clearly sets limits and expectations but does it in a way that maintains relationships. Connect has promising outcomes, both short and long term. Parents report feeling less stressed and more effective in parenting; they see fewer behaviour problems and better social functioning in their teen. Parents who have participated in

graphed exclusively for the Biological Sciences Department and so has a great deal of biology in his background. Now retired Ron travels almost constantly to interesting places around the world to, of course, take pictures. Nature photography in general and wildflowers in particular are his preferred subjects but, in fact, he photographs anything that promises

to make an interesting picture. He frequently takes groups of like-minded people with him on his travels, which greatly enhances the experience for all and reduces costs. During his brief periods at home Ron enjoys giving talks about his experiences to interested groups. Ron is vice-president of the Native Plant So-

ciety of BC, is active in the Vancouver Natural History Society and is on the Speakers Committee at VanDusen Gardens. Pink Mountain Provincial Park is located approximately 180 km northwest of Fort St. John. The area has an international reputation as the most accessible spot in northern B.C. to observe Arctic butterflies.

the group have provided positive feedback and indicated they feel respected and supported in the group. The next session start date is Oct. 11 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursdays. Pre-registration is required. Food and refreshments are provided. To register or for more information on this program contact Sheila Cohen, family counsellor for family solutions at the Canadian Mental Health Association—Cariboo Chilcotin Branch, at 250305-4487.

Fall CAR CARE Prep for Daylight Savings Time Proper vehicle lighting will be vital to safety when daylight-savings time ends in October. To prepare for fewer hours of daylight and the extra hours of darkness, Car Care Canada encourages motorists to take a few minutes to inspect their vehicles to ensure that all of the lights are working properly. Car Care Canada recommends checking all vehicle lighting on a monthly basis, including the headlights, turn signals, brake lights, side lights, parking lights, tail lights, backup lights and license plate lights. Whether you do it yourself or visit a professional automotive technician, it is important to repair or replace non-functioning lights immediately. Also remember that clean headlights help you see better at night and in poor weather conditions so make sure tobrush them clean of snow in the winter and keep them clear of mud and muck during rainy seasons. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for your headlights to dim and burn out before you replace them. Most headlights will dim over time. Replacing them every year will ensure the best lighting performance. Replace your headlights in pairs to avoid uneven illumination, which can diminish driving visibility. You might want to also consider replacing standard halogen headlights with high performance headlights that produce a light closer in color to natural daylight. These whiter, brighter bulbs help improve your visibility at night. Remember that halogen lights are under pressure, and anything under pressure has the potential to explode if handled improperly. Always wear safety glasses and gloves when changing your lighting. Do not touch the glass directly with your hands. The oils from your skin, when on the glass, will cause the bulb to over heat, resulting in shorter life. Next time you bring your vehicle into a shop, ask your technician to

check that your headlights are properly adjusted. Headlights can be knocked out of alignment by rough driving and, if not properly aimed, can be distracting to other drivers. Something as simple as a burnt-out brake light could potentially

have major consequences. Results of vehicle inspections during National Car Care Month in the United States found: â&#x20AC;˘ 8 percent of vehicles inspected needed work on at least one of their turn signals. â&#x20AC;˘ 6 percent of vehicles had problems with at

Beat the

least one of their brake lights. â&#x20AC;˘ 5 percent of vehicles failed their side light inspection. â&#x20AC;˘ 1 percent of vehicles failed the inspection for their headlights, parking lights, tail lights, backup lights and license plate lights.

High-tech fluids keep vehicles healthy to the manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended oil change intervals. Transmission fluid performs a number of functions. It lubricates, transmits drive in the torque converter, acts as a hydraulic pressure medium and as a coolant. Most older vehicles should have it changed at 30,000-50,000 km intervals but new semisynthetic fluids have stretched this to 80,000100,000 km or more on some new cars. Its level should be checked after a short warm-up drive with the engine idling in park. The fluid on the dipstick should be red. If it is brown and has a burnt smell, this indicates a problem. If you do need to add fluid make sure you use the correct type. A number of oils with unique properties have been developed to lubri-

cate manual transmissions, the differentials and 4x4 transfer cases. Use only the correct product and while change intervals are often lengthy they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be overlooked. Anti-freeze not only

acts as a coolant, allowing todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engines to run at higher temperatures than ever before, but it has lubricating and anti-corrosion properties that help water pumps and radiators live longer more productive lives.

A vehicle relies on the effectiveness of its vital fluids to keep its moving parts operating efficiently, reliably and safely and you ignore them at your peril. The list of liquids includes gasoline, motor oil, anti-freeze, windshield wiper fluid, brake fluid, automatic transmission fluid, specific lubricants for manual gearboxes, the transfer cases in four-wheel-drive vehicles and the differential in rear-drive vehicles, plus power steering fluid. All are specially formulated high-tech chemical cocktails, so the correct type and grade must always be used and, because they can break down with time and usage, they need replacement at the intervals specified in a vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual, says Car Care Canada. Fuel chemistry is something we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think much about, but the correct octane rating is important to engine operation and poor quality fuel may not contain the additives required to meet seasonal requirements and keep fuel injection systems functioning properly. Motor oil is your engineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life blood. It not only lubricates, reducing wear, but performs the task of keeping combustion contaminants, metal fragments and dirt etc. in suspension to be carried to the filter or removed when the oil is changed. Another reason not to ignore oil changes is that its chemical structure and the ingredients added to it begin to break down with time, and it loses effectiveness. Oil life monitoring devices are becoming more common these days, but unless you have one, stick

Hunting Season in the Cariboo

Fall 2012

Salt licks for moose The moose is the horse-like king of northern forests. Some areas have larger populations than others, but hunters should always prepare their territory so that there are moose in the area when the hunting season opens. Using

salt licks is a good way to attract these majestic animals. Salts and minerals are essential nutritional elements for the moose’s metabolism. Consequently, salt licks are favourite haunts for moose. Here are a few

simple tricks to ensure that your salt lick is effective. The location of the salt lick is a major factor in its effectiveness. The best sites are near streams, marshes, rivers, or lakes that are frequented by moose. The

proximity of a body of water is always preferable, as the salt makes the animals thirsty. In addition, it’s important to understand the animal’s morphology. Moose have very long legs and short

necks. Licking a block of salt that is lying on the ground is not ideal, as moose will have to either kneel down or spread their legs in order to reach it. For this reason, moose prefer food that is higher off

the ground. Leave salt licks on old tree stumps, for example, so that they are within easy reach. Even better, the salt will impregnate the stump and the surrounding soil. There are different

types of salt licks available in stores, including pure salt or salt mixed with iodine, sulphur, and molasses. Try the different kinds in order to find the one that the moose in your area prefer.

Outsmarting the moose

These general safety measures are recommended when handling game meat: â&#x20AC;˘Do not shoot, handle or consume any animal that is acting abnormally or appears to be sick. â&#x20AC;˘Wear latex or rubber gloves when field dressing or handling any dead animal. â&#x20AC;˘Bone out the meat from your animal. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saw through bone if you can avoid it, and avoid cutting through the brain or spinal cord. â&#x20AC;˘Minimize the handling of brain and spinal tissues. â&#x20AC;˘Wash hands and instruments thoroughly after field dressing is completed.

BIG POWER Moose naturally make a variety of calls, so successful hunters need to have a repertoire of calls as well.

Hunting techniques are continually changing and hunters must learn to adapt to this reality. Year after year, this evolution in research and development can be seen at all the hunting and fishing shows. Many new products end up in stores â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some become essential pieces of equipment, and others quickly vanish. Keeping things in perspective is what really matters. Despite all the technical gadgets available, hunters still have to know how to vary their approach to the prey. For years hunters have been trying the ploy of imitating the calls of a female moose in heat, but it is not very often that we hear of someone having success with the method. Even though it can still be effective sometimes, moose have adapted over the years and have developed a certain amount of distrust for this call. They can be lured by it, but they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t approach the source. Hunters must therefore find other types of call in order to be more convincing. Animals adjust to the behaviour of hunters, so hunters have to adjust as well to outsmart their game. If moose make a variety of calls, hunters will have do the same in order to be successful.

Providing a space and a structure for exploring that process is the goal of these workshops. Anne Theresa White has been mentoring young writers in the community for several years,

and her daily walks at the nature centre feed her creative spirit. She has written a magical children’s book set there. She and staff teacher Julianne Trelenberg will combine nature walks with writing games to nurture kids’ expressive potential. Group size is limited, so register early by phoning 250-398-8532 or e-mailing neptune@ The fee is $10 per session or $25 for all three. The event is being held with the support of the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake through the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society.

Jessabelle Atkinson-Trelenberg often volunteers as an interpreter at the Scout Island Nature Centre, seen here Sept. 8. Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Glenda Standeven is “Choosing to Smile” Author and inspirational speaker Glenda Standeven will be at the Cariboo Regional District Williams Lake Library on Oct. 4 from 7 to 8 p.m. to share light-hearted excerpts from her story in the book Choosing to Smile, which she co-authored with two friends. She will be sharing her choosing to smile message at many non-profit groups over her two-week tour in Williams Lake. Glenda, a former resident of Williams Lake, feels she has a good reason to smile — she is a 25-

year bone cancer survivor who lost her entire right leg, including her hip and pelvis, to the disease in 1988. She describes herself as a “cancer thriver’’ not just a cancer survivor. Glenda and her husband Rick resided in Williams Lake in the early ‘80’s before moving back to their hometown of Chilliwack, B.C. Both are excited to be returning to Williams Lake to do some visiting, speaking and promoting the book Choosing to Smile along the way. Standeven smiles as she says, “My

husband Rick proposed to me during the Stampede Weekend in 1981, so Williams Lake holds some special memories for both of us.” Choosing to Smile chronicles the life stories of three friends before, during and after their respective cancer diagnoses. Their book is meant to offer an insight into the life of a person dealing with any type of adversity and to also help others recognize that cancer does not define a person. “We have people of all ages, both men and

women, who have read and loved our book. It’s not just for cancer patients. It’s a book that one reviewer described as ‘encompassing the wholeness of life,’ which we think is a very apt description.” says Standeven. Standeven also says laughter and a positive attitude has helped her deal with not just cancer but all of life’s many challenges. “When people look at me the first thing I want them to notice is that I’m smiling not that I’m using crutches and have one leg.”

She and her husband have been married for 30 years and have two grown sons. Standeven is wellknown as an inspirational speaker and presenter of a Smoking Awareness Program for Teens. “I have a mission and a goal to help other people through tough times by sharing my life story openly and honestly.” says Standeven with a smile. Their book is available on Kindle Amazon, at Coles, Indigo and Chapters stores across Canada, and at

Mountview elementary recycles 44,800 beverage containers Williams Lake Elementary students and teachers collected 44,840 beverage containers and earned $2,600.26 in deposit refunds during the 2011/2012 Encorp BC Recycling Program. Their outstanding effort garnered the school an Honourable Mention (fourth) in their enrollment category of 151 to 300 students. “Mountview Elementary students, teachers and parents are putting in a strong effort diverting beverage containers from landfills,” says Sandy Sigmund, vice president of development and CMO for Encorp Pacific (Canada). “All the money stays with the school that earned it going towards enhancing student activities and the purchasing of equipment.” Encorp Pacific (Canada) BC School Recycling Program provides schools with the tools and resources to make recycling easy, convenient and

profitable. Since the program’s inception in 2000, more than 40 million containers have been recycled and B.C. schools have been refunded more than $2.4 million. Schools keep 100 per cent of the deposit refunds for each container collected and the program is free of charge. The schools are grouped into categories, based on student enrollment, and the schools that collect the most containers in each category win cash prizes of $1,000, $750 and $500 for first, second and third. Encorp thanks all the schools who took part in the BC School Recycling Program. Just go to for more information on how your school ranked or to enter the Encorp School Recycling Program. Other recognition opportunities include; all top five schools from each enrollment category are recognized, with a year-end

achievement certificate and individual award certificates are available for “superstar recyclers” at elementary schools. Recognized elementary and secondary schools from all parts of B.C. are encouraged to participate. Encorp Pacific (Canada) is a federally incorporated not-

for-profit stewardship corporation with beverage container management as its core business. It says it is committed to developing and managing a consumer-friendly and cost-effective system to recover beverage containers from consumers and ensure that they are recycled and not incinerated

or land filled. It also provides stewardship services on a contract basis to the electronics industry for the collection and recycling of regulated products, as well as the dairy Industry to manage its voluntary milk recycling program. To learn more about Encorp Pacific, visit

TWO-STOREY, FAMILY HOME This two-storey, three-bedroom family home features a ground-ďŹ&#x201A;oor entrance, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the second ďŹ&#x201A;oor that contains most of the living area. Downstairs, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s space for a den, three-piece bath and rec room, space that one day might serve as an in-law suite or studio. Upstairs, the great room, dining area and kitchen ďŹ&#x201A;ow into one another. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area, so serving meals is a matter of just a few steps. The U-shaped counter conďŹ guration promises efďŹ ciency, while the raised eating bar provides a pleasant spot for snacks and casual meals. A pantry offers extra storage. The great roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ replace, ďŹ&#x201A;anked by built-in entertainment units, will make this a favourite gathering place for family and guests on cooler days and evenings.
