A growing number of people are wearing plastic purple bracelets with a message that pertains to one of Williams Lake’s own. One one side of the bracelet is the name of Rayel MacDonald, the 20-year-old nursing student hit by a truck and killed last April in Williams Lake. The other side says, “I Promise Mom.” The bracelets are produced through Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (M.A.D.D.) and are a reminder not to drink and drive. MacDonald and a friend were hit by a pick-up truck at around 2 a.m. while crossing Carson Drive with a group of friends after attending the Indoor Rodeo Dance on April 22. Martin William Michael Gentles, 27, was charged with impaired driving causing death and impaired driving causing bodily harm. The charges were stayed in provincial court on June 27, for the

police to gather more expert reports to bring the case back for the Crown to look at again. Soon after the accident, a friend of MacDonald’s, Trina Snodgrass, saw the bracelets on the M.A.D.D. website. Snodgrass mentioned the bracelets to the MacDonald fam-

ily, they ordered 300 in July, and all were sold within three weeks. This time M.A.D.D. Williams Lake has ordered another 300. “Already we’re on a roll selling them out again,” MacDonald’s mother Andrea said, adding her daughter was often the designated driver for her friends. The ironic thing is that the week before she died, MacDonald tweeted “being a really good drunk driver is not something to brag about.” Six months after MacDonald’s death, her family continues to grapple with their loss, yet Andrea said everyone, even strangers, has been overwhelmingly supportive. At the 54th Annual Williams Lake & District 4H Show and Sale, Olivia, the youngest MacDonald daughter, showed and auctioned a pig. “Her uncle wanted to buy the pig, and then we were going to get the pig back and sell raffle tickets to raise money for the Memory Garden where the accident happened below Williams

Lake Secondary School,” Andrea said. Auctioneer Wilf Smith decided they should sell the pig again instead. “By this time, it’s the end of the week of 4H and we’re all exhausted. I’ve known Wilf along time and said ‘OK, that sounds like a good idea’,” Andrea recalled. Olivia sold the pig for $3,800, a sum her mom described as normally unheard of at the auction. Then Peterson Contracting, the purchasers, donated it back at the end of the evening. The place was packed, the crowd was geared up, the auctioneers were going crazy, and the pig sold again to PMT Chartered Accountants. “All the money is going to the memorial site near the community garden. We’re going to buy some benches, and there’s going to be a garden and a monument.,” Andrea said. See COMMUNITY Page A3

Unnecessary idling of a vehicle is something everyone can be guilty of. Yet if Canadian motorists avoided unnecessary idling for just three minutes every day of the year, it would prevent 630 million litres of fuel from being wasted and 1.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from being needlessly pumped into the environment. “Annually, that would be the equivalent of taking 320,000 cars off of the road,� says Tammy Keetch, Williams Lake air quality educator. This week Keetch has challenged students, staff and parents at local elementary schools and Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in Williams Lake to take the pledge to be idle free. “We’re just trying to raise awareness about the facts about idling. There are lots of myths out there. This campaign is about getting the right information,� Keetch explains. Participating schools include Mountview, Chilcotin Road, Cataline, Nesika, Big Lake, Horsefly, and Lac La Hache Elementary along with the Nursing Department at TRU. Some of the schools have participated this week, others will at a later date. Keetch has distributed information to the schools and the school board, along with free Idle Free Zone signs for school parking lots. “Parents are the worst offenders,� she adds. The Idle Free pilot campaign supports the School District’s recent

renewal of their Anti Idling of Engines Policy for buses and equipment and the Vehicle and Equipment Idle Free policy of the City of Williams Lake, Keetch adds. Studies by Health Canada and community health departments have shown a direct link between air pollution and significant respiratory health effects. “Children are really vulnerable to air pollution because they are still developing and because they breath more. They are lower to the ground than adults so they are closer to the source of pollutants,� Keetch says. They spend more time outdoors being

Timber recommendations met with mixed reactions Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The government’s 11 new recommendations to increase the midterm timber supply are being met with mixed reactions by Cariboo Chilcotin politicians. Last week the Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations released a series of recommendations, ranging from more community engagement around forestry, introducing legislation to enable the conversion of volumebased to area-based forest licenses, to perhaps opening up designated sensitive areas. The recommendations follow a series of meetings hosted by a special committee on mid-term supply that toured the province to hear from a range of stakeholders. During a press conference held for media Oct. 9, Minister Steve Thomson said now that the mountain pine beetle infestation is running its course, the government will update

its forest inventory and reforestation plan. “The rapidly changing situation in our forests, dictated that we hold off updating those plans until the situation stablized. Now we can proceed,” Thompson said. Parliamentary secretary for forestry, John Rustad, who chaired the special committee on mid-timber supply, said moving to area- based tenures is something he’s pleased about; however, he cautioned it will have to be done carefully and slowly. “It will be a great benefit for what we can potentially do for growing more fibre and more value on the land base.” The utilization of non-sawlog components, is another key point, Rustad said. “To truly utilize marginally economic stands, which has enormous potential to reduce the impact of the mountain pine beetle epidemic on our midterm fibre supply, will become more important over the coming years for our bio-economy.”

“To truly utilize marginally economic stands, which has enormous potential to reduce the impact of the mountain pine beetle epidemic on our mid-term fibre supply, will become more important over the coming years for our bio-economy.”

- John Rustad, Parliamentary Secretary Weighing in on the recommendations, Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson is critical of the government’s plan to rethink the inventory over the next ten years, while proceeding to make decisions right away. “You juxtapose the fact that there’s an admission here that they don’t have the inventory required to manage the public forest, but they’re going to make fundamental decisions about increasing public access to that forest today to keep today’s industry going,” Simpson said, adding it’s a recipe for disaster. “We’ve seen this movie before everywhere that we put economics and community dependency ahead of what

the natural resource is capable of providing on a sustainable basis.” It’s not new territory, Simpson said, comparing it to forestry and fishing in Eastern Canada and farming land in the Middle East. “Throughout history we have always extinguished the resource in the name of economics and stability. That’s what they’re doing today. “There’s not creativity or innovation here. It’s an eleventh hour panic. I, and I am certainly not alone, have been asking for a more reasonable, thoughtful, forward-looking response since 2005 when I was first elected.” Simpson said the recommendations are all about justifying re-

building the mill in Burns Lake. “Because that begins to establish the precedent for everywhere else, you have this overarching change. Area based tenure — absolutely, I’ve been an advocate, but not the way this government is going to do that, where they’re going to give the cabinet the power to award an area-based tenure in order to get a mill rebuilt.” It will establish a legal precedent that everyone else will come after them for, he warned. Tsilhqot’in National Government chair, Anaham chief Joe Alphonse cautioned forestry companies and the government the need to properly consult with all resource users.

“Take for example the amount of fuel out there that has to be dealt with. We’d like a huge fire guard logged around our community and any other community that’s out in the Chilcotin where it’s needed. Companies have to commit to logging beyond the areas close to Williams Lake and quit using the economy as an excuse,” Alphonse said. His community was evacuated in 2009 and twice in 2010 because of fires. There has to be a plan to deal with the fuel that’s out there, he said. “BC forests have an estimated value of one trillion dollars,” NDP candidate Charlie Wyse said. “The Liberal government has failed to invest adequately in BC forest’s inventory, silviculture and tree planting over the last 11 years. The Forest Practice Board and BC’s Auditor General have criticized the Liberal’s inept stewardship regarding BC’s forests and its health. In 2011, the Liberals stood by while a record num-

ber of interior logs representing thousands of jobs for forestry workers were exported. Similarly in 2005 and 2006, the Liberals stood by while the coastal logging industry spiraled into crisis.” Defending the recommendations, Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett said nobody is going to go into any old growth or constrained areas without having local community input. “Any resource management plans will go back to communities and will be sciencebased. Other than that we have no intentions of going back and touching these sensitive areas, as the Opposition is saying.” In rural BC, Barnett said, so many uses of the land have to be taken into consideration. “Our tourism operators, ranchers, trappers, our habitat, and our ecosystems all have a stake. “When you take into consideration the pine beetle infestation, it’s difficult to balance,” Barnett added.

Community kindess appreciated by family Continued From Page A1 The community garden took us in to be a part of it all,” Andrea explained. In Big Lake, at the family home, friends have helped build a beautiful garden there. Andrea says, it all really helps. “As dark and as sad as this is for us, the kindness has brought so much comfort and

warmth to our hearts and souls.” Pam Herman, the president of the M.A.D.D. Williams Lake chapter, noted the bracelets are available at Excelsior Jewellers Ltd. on Second Avenue, Red Dogs on First Avenue, and at Tory Kier Ltd. on Oliver Street. Proceeds from the sale will go toward something in MacDonald’s honour in the M.A.D.D. garden

in Boitanio Park. “We’re also hoping to send the family to a national candle light vigil conference in Toronto at the end of April, and will be putting the money toward that,” Herman said. People can also email her at to buy bracelets. Or if they would like to volunteer for the organization, they can phone 250-2672809.

Bracelets honouring the memory of Rayel MacDonald, 20, who was hit by a pick-up truck and killed in Wililams Lake on April 22 have been selling rapidly. A campaign by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, proceeds from the sale of the bracelets will go toward a plaque in the M.A.D.D. garden in Boitanio Park.

Govt’s professional employees raise awareness Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Professional Employees Association (PEA) members in Williams Lake participated in a public information session Tuesday at the provincial government building on Borland Street to raise awareness of the importance of licensed professionals in the public service. The campaign was part of rallies held across the province a day before the association returned for two days of bargaining Wednesday and Thursday. Martin Sills, an employee for the Ministry of Agriculture, said he has seen the number of professionals working in government steadily decline. When he first arrived in Williams Lake in 1977, there were 60 professional employees working for the provincial government. Today there are about 35. “We’re shrinking rapidly and the impacts to the public won’t be felt until there’s a problem and no one caught it in time. That’s what we’re here for, to catch issues in time. I know when I retire they won’t be replacing me. I’ve been told that,” Sills said. He estimated the BCGEU is roughly 24,000 strong, while the PEA is roughly 1,200 strong. “There’s a ratio of one to 20. In the past two years alone, the PEA has been reduced by 10 per cent. The

NOTICE OF APPLICATIONS FOR SCRUTINEERS WILLIAMS LAKE RURAL CONTRACTED FIRE PROTECTION SERVICE OTHER VOTING On Saturday, November 24, 2012, qualied electors within porƟons of Cariboo Regional District Electoral Areas D, E and F may vote on the following quesƟon:

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Darcy Lillico, BC Timber Sales, Harry Jennings, Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, and Erica Nitchie, Ministry of Agriculture, were among members of the Professional Employees Association attending an information session held Tuesday. BCGEU has been increased by one and half per cent. Why is the government trying to decrease the professionals that are dedicated to the safety and security of the public sector?” Sills said. “The job action is not to ask for more money. It’s the de-professionalization that’s got us very concerned because the job cuts that are within the PEA are significant.” Over time through various efficiency programs and budgetary restraints, there has been an erosion of the number of licensed professionals within government, said Harry Jennings, PEA employee with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

That’s a worry for professionals, Jennings added, because professionals have to answer to a broader set of public objectives, that cannot be encompassed by a single professional working for a company. “Our accountability to the public as a whole

is to the legislature. All professionals inside and outside of government work to a code of ethics and do a great job, but working in the public service requires you to look to a broader set of value objectives,” Jennings said. While the BCGEU and COPE have signed

tentative agreements with government that have yet to be ratified, the PEA has not. “Yesterday and today through a poster campaign and here doing a bit of a rally we’re trying to raise the profile of our group both within our office and outside,” Jennings said.

New parking lot needed downtown Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Chiropractor Dr. Mike Bos has asked the city to consider adding another municipal parking facility downtown. He recently renovated the old Movie Gallery building at 232 Third Avenue North for his business and says with the proposed Spruce Lee Construction Ltd. development for the corner north end of the block, parking needs will increase. “Looking around the city with open eyes we see that there are many municipal parking facilities throughout the downtown core. Maybe it’s our turn. “We have petitioned the local businesses, ranging from TNG, Sears, Fabric Land, and Cariboo Friendship Society,” Bos told council at its Oct. 9 regular meeting. His business alone is adding a volume of up 120 patients a day, and next door a recently-added real estate office is also substantially increasing the traffic flow. “I’d like to ask the city to put its money where its mouth is. You want us to

better the community and the downtown core. I’ve invested $600,000. We don’t have the capacity to create anything larger for parking on our lot,” Bos said. While he was at the council meeting to speak in a favour of the Spruce Lee Development during a public hearing, Bos seized the opportunity to draw attention to the parking issue. He told council if a

parking lot was created in the empty lot behind his building next to the Tsilhqot’in National Government office, it would improve the look of the area and ease overflow parking. “It’s very unpleasant, it’s not maintained. It’s an area for less than desired activity,” he said of the empty lot. “If it were maintained as a municipal parking lot it would probably be less attractive to

less-than-desirable activity.” The parking lot could also used by Kiwanis Park users, he suggested. “Right now people with young families have to park across the street. It could also act as overflow parking throughout the entire year for the recreation complex, graduation, grad parades: all that parking overflows onto Proctor Street.” In its development

design, Spruce Lee Construction Ltd. proposed a commercial building containing two units for office or retail, plus a total of 72 parking spaces. Bos, however, suggests the parking lot will be used up by people working at or visiting the site. Council received a petition about the parking lot proposal from Bos and has referred it to staff for a future Committee of the Whole discussion.

Clarification on proposed Williams Lake Rural Contracted Fire Protection Service Further to the News Release regarding One Referendum for Williams Lake Fire Protection issued by the Cariboo Regional District on October 12, 2012, and subsequent news stories, some clarification on the issue and negotiations between the CRD and the City may be of assistance.

intent is that there will be only one service agreement for Fire Protection for rural areas between the city and the regional district. This will correct the current situation where regional district property owners are paying different rates in the three current Fire Protection Agreement areas.

Referendum Question At a specially convened meeting last Friday and after reviewing newly received information, the board elected to go to a single referendum, rather than the two as previously reported. All those CRD Williams Lake Fringe area residents who have been receiving fire protection services from the Williams Lake Fire Department will be asked to vote whether to continue to receive fire protection services at an approximate residential rate of $129/$100,000. A no vote would result in a discontinuation of fire protection services for an indefinite period of time.

Negotiations regarding Total Assessment v. Residential Only Assessment Contrary to recent comments, the current Agreement between the Province and the City, which will expire on December 31, 2012, was not always based solely on residential assessment values. Prior to 1994, it was based on total assessment of all classes, which is what the regional district is proposing for the new merged service.

Should the referendum on November 24, 2012 be approved by rural residents in the proposed rural service areas, the

250-392-3351 or 1-800-665-1636

Total assessment includes all classes of buildings including industrial and commercial. Since industrial and commercial establishments in both the city and regional district fringe area benefit from fire protection services, the regional

district is proposing to include these categories in the overall allocation of costs. The City of Williams Lake has a higher proportion of Industrial and Commercial property in their tax assessment base than the Cariboo Regional District. In both the City and the CRD, Industrial and Commercial property taxpayers pay taxes at a higher rate than residential rates.

Current Proposal Based on the current total assessment proposal and the referendum question approved by the CRD Board, residential properties in the City would pay $72/$100,000 assessed value for fire protection, and regional district residential properties would pay $129/$100,000. The CRD has been attempting to negotiate residential rates closer together but there is insufficient time for further negotiations. The latest offer from the city is being put to referendum. The other scenario, to allocate costs based on residential assessment only, would have residential properties in the

city paying $66/$100,000 of assessment value, and regional district residents paying $160/$100,000, for the same Fire Protection service. All of the calculations above are based upon the 2012 Year Budgeted Costs for Williams Lake Fire Department, and Revised 2012 Assessed Values. Contrary to a recent news story, the City will not lose $172, 000 in revenue. Rather, costs for fire protection services will be re-allocated to be more equitable for all residents. For further information, please contact the local Area Directors or the Cariboo Regional District.

We must have debate

Great discussions going on

The minister was made aware of the current state of the building, and also met with the Seniors Advisory Council and visited other seniors’ facilities. There is From the an opporMayor’s tunity to Chair apply for Kerry Cook $20,000 to promote an age-friendly community. The City will work with seniors, building on the good work of our Accessibility Committee, and work together on other issues such as housing to become a truly age-friendly community. We were chosen as one of 18 communities to receive support from the United Way to establish a non-medical home support program called Better at Home. We will also welcome Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson, who will be meeting with the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition Friday to discuss the government’s response to the MidTerm Timber Supply Report. I was at a great discussion on the future of the pool last week, along with members of the Pool Task Force and the public, as our consultants discussed a preferred option to repair and expand our pool. The option would see the current pool renovated and the addition of a leisure pool, change room space, and fitness space, at a cost of $11.3 million. We’re still waiting for the final recommendation to come to Joint Committee. Thanks to all those who came to the open house or visited one of the many kiosks around town last weekend we still want to hear from you. You can still comment on the proposal by e-mailing communityservices@williamslake. ca. The details are all at Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Our Viewpoint

Beef recall scary People are concerned about the massive recall of beef products processed by XL Foods in Brooks, Alberta. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) shut the plant down on Sept. 27 when it was confirmed some products contained E. coli. This single processing plant supplies as much as 35 per cent of the beef products in Canada, and also ships meat to the U.S. Both Canada Safeway and Overwaitea Food Group are supplied product by XL Foods. While both parent companies state they were impacted by the recall, spokespersons said they were successful in removing “potentially impacted products� from their shelves and replacing it with unaffected product. XL Foods has been given a limited opening so CFIA inspectors can ensure the processing problem has been corrected, and they will continue stringent inspections until they are positive beef is being processed safely be-

fore giving the green light to a full opening. The recall also makes a case for area residents who are very concerned about food security and the importance of consuming products that are raised, slaughtered and processed in our region. Ever since small abattoirs throughout the province have shut down because of stricter slaughterhouse regulations. It would be more economical for the producers and local consumers would know how the animals were raised and how they were being processed. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett has been working with Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick to see if smaller slaughter facilities can get new licences so they can reopen. That would provide a boost to the cattle industry and give consumers some choices. -100 Mile Free Press

ow that our better-paying manufacturing jobs are moving offshore, we’re starting down a whole new “free trade� path: sell our ore bodies, oil sands, natural gas reserves, and forests directly to foreign national governments, while allowing those same governments to import their own lower cost workers to Canada to extract our resources and ship them home. This new apMLA proach to trade Musings begs for Bob Simpson full public debate before we commit to selling any more of our resources to foreign national corporations and to the exploitation of temporary foreign workers to extract our natural resources. Prime Minister Harper’s proposed free trade agreement with China (FIPPA) must be subjected to full public scrutiny and debate, inside and outside of Parliament. Free trade, on principle, should only be formalized between liberal democratic nations whose people share the same basic rights and freedoms. The recent admission by the BC government that thousands of temporary Chinese workers will be heading to northern coal mines raises a related issue that also demands more public attention and debate. How much of the Premier’s jobs strategy will require this importation of temporary workers, and how well equipped are we to protect these workers? The ongoing saga of the Chinese workers who were killed in an Alberta oil sands accident in 2007 clearly illustrates how weak our laws are. In this case a Chinese national company was not complying with engineering and safety regulations, in addition to not paying workers their full wage. If we’re going to import workers to export our natural resources, how do we ensure those workers have the same rights and protections as all British Columbians? We must enforce our own regulations to prevent China, and other national governments, from importing their weaker labour and environmental laws. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

Mark Canadian goods Editor:   Increasingly I find as I shop in our local stores that I am not being given any choice as to where the products are made or come from.  While it is understandable that the stores we shop in are working hard to give us the lowest price, the question I ask is, are they not carrying this too far? Personally I am proud to be Canadian, proud to celebrate a lifetime of working to make Canada a better place to live.  A retailer of goods, in an effort to offer the lowest price for his or her goods, in a way has forced manufactures to search oversees for the most economical (cheapest) labour market, taking jobs that once were Canadian and shipping these jobs overseas. Now these same stores that operate in our

community have little to offer us except products made in those distant lands.  I would like to see our retail outlets proudly mark Canadian-made goods so that it is not necessary to study the very fine print that says ‘made in an offshore country.’ Stores could put a maple leaf symbol as part of their shelf signage, or on their price stamp; manufactures could also put a maple leaf symbol beside the Bar Code.   I know, I know the argument that it is not where it is made that sells the product, it’s the price, and when the only criteria is price, our choice to decide for ourselves is taken from us. Possibly if we, as shoppers could quickly see that the product is Canadian, we may gladly pay a little more for the product. A trip to the grocery department of our big box stores dis-

plays canned food products from where; don’t we have Canadian farmers anymore? It might be very interesting to take an actual audit of our big stores to see how much support they do give to our Canadian manufacturing industry. The very people that these stores are selling these offshore products to, are often the same former employees  that have lost jobs to these offshore manufactures of goods that were once made in Canada. Store managers, by loading your shelves only with offshore goods, you are taking away our right to make choices for ourselves. In a crisis, increasing dependence on offshore suppliers could come back to haunt each of us.   Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Disappointed life jackets not offered Editor: This is in regards to the Sam Ketcham pool no longer offering life jackets to the public for recreational swims.  When we first moved to Williams Lake about three years ago we we went to a rec swim and my son saw some kids there for a birthday party and they were using this fantastic foam canoe. He wanted to try it out so badly, but wasn’t able to because they only brought it out for birthday parties.   Since then, they have started to bring out the canoes for rec swims A7

and my son finally got to try one, but we were told that the only way he could go in the canoe was if he wore a life jacket.  There have always been life jackets available, until recently. I’m not entirely sure when they changed their policy, but we went to the pool on Oct. 13.   We have life jackets for our children, but usually don’t bring them with us to the pool because there has always been some available. We were surprised to find that life jackets were no longer available unless they were there for swim lessons.   Had I known that they no longer

supply the public with life jackets, we would have brought our own. It’s kind of disappointing to get to the pool, get the kids ready, get into the swim area and find no life jackets available. By the time I were to get the kids dressed again, drive back home and pick up our own life jackets it would almost be a waste to bother going back at all.  I’m just very disappointed that the pool would take a safety item away and it seems like a waste they sit in a supply room.   Tara Sharp Williams Lake

Time to put aside grievances and work together XL Foods Inc. shutdown continues to rock cattle industry The sad saga persists, long after anyone involved in the beef industry ever would have predicted — a continued shutdown of XL Foods Inc. in Brooks, Alta., (one of only two major beef processing plants in Canada) has generated a tsunami-like wave that has engulfed the entire cattle industry. The reason for the original closure — the discovery of an E.coli contamination, definitely a real concern but certainly not the end of the world as we know it.


Cattle Fodder Liz Twan As with anything in which a human hand plays a role, there is potential for error. So shut down the plant. Scour, disinfect and sterilize

from top-to-bottom, examine workpractises — implement change (if necessary); then get back up and running. Simple, right? Hasn’t happened. Why? Too much time by too many spent head shaking, finger-pointing and speculating about whose fault it was instead of trying to get back to business. The wave is just rolling along, actually gathering momentum, leaving those in the cattle industry

floundering and sputtering in the wake. As usual, the little people are hardest hit; workers at the XL Foods Inc. Brooks plant — 2,000 laid-off employees, many now unable to meet month-end obligations. What can they do, find another job. In a town the size of Brooks with 1999 others. The time to pin the blame on the donkey (pick one) is long past, just get that plant up and running

- whatever it takes, before its too late. Cattle producers worried as two big processors (Cargill & XL Foods) gobbled up many of the mid-sized facilities. Imagine their trepidation should this (XL Foods) fiasco cause this plant to go under. Put aside the petty grievances, problems and politics; work together to keep competition healthy in the Canadian beef processing sector.

“They call the Cariboo home� Turners keep dance traditions spinning in the Cariboo Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Whether it be round dancing, contra line dancing or square dancing, Mary Anne and Nick Turner love to dance. In fact, Mary Anne and Nick met through dance and have spent many years in the lakecity teaching others the fun of this wholesome, social form of exercise. Mary Anne came to the Cariboo from Langley where she had been an elementary school teacher for almost 10 years. During those years she had taken workshops in folk dancing  and enjoyed passing these skills on to her students.   She was familiar with the Williams Lake area because she had often visited her dad, who was a radar technician working at the RCAF station on Puntzi Mountain. On one of those visits, deciding it was time for a change, she stopped by the School District 27 board office in Williams Lake to see if there might be a job opening. As it happens there was, so in the fall of 1978 Mary Anne moved to Williams Lake and started teaching grades 4,5 and 6 at Wildwood Elementary School.  This was a job she held for almost 20 years, retiring after six more years as the teacher/librarian at Poplar Glade Elementary.  Throughout these years Mary Anne continued to teach folk dancing to her students and to hold workshops for teachers Nick developed his love for dance living in the Chilcotin. He first came to Canada from England in 1959/60 during a gap year between high school and university. He ended up working on the forest fire suppression crew at Alexis Creek. “I fell in love with the Chilcotin,� Nick says. He went back home to Eng-

Nick and Mary Anne Turner found each other through square dancing. In addition to enjoying dancing themselves they teach square and round dancing and have developed a program for teaching square dancing. land where he earned his degree at Cambridge University, then, in 1964, emigrated to Canada. Once again he worked on the fire suppression crew and in the fall of 1966 began teaching at the school in Tatlayoko. After a further 12 years of teaching in the Chilcotin,  Nick moved on to teach at Crescent Heights Elementary in  Williams Lake before becoming the alternate education teacher for 10 years at the former Anne Stevenson Junior Secondary School (now Thompson Rivers University). Around 1988, Mary Anne says her father suggested she

might like to try square dancing as a way to meet lots of friendly people. As it turned out, Nick was the square dance caller for the Williams Lake Club. He had developed a passion for the dance while living in the Chilcotin, and attending dances hosted by various people in the Alexis Creek area. During this time he started to call the dances - a skill he taught himself using vinyl 45 rpm records. He has called for the Williams Lake club for 34 years and now uses a laptop computer as his music source as Square Dancing

moves into the 21st century. Nick and Mary Anne also discovered that they were each, in their separate worlds, going around the district holding dance workshops for students at various schools. Mary Anne was teaching folk dancing and Nick was teaching square dancing. Inevitably, they got together to teach dancing in the schools. Romance blossomed and they were married in 1993 at a square dance wedding held at Crescent Heights Elementary, complete with a pot luck supper for which square dancers are famous. After their wedding the couple continued putting their talents together to host folk and square dance workshops for teachers on professional development days and for students during school enrichment events. While hosting these workshops they soon realized that busy teachers would have difficulty finding the time to research dances well enough to teach them to their students.  So once again they put their heads together and developed an instructional dance program for teachers and community leaders to use. The program is called Moving and Grooving and includes a curriculum binder plus eight CDs of music and calls. This non-profit program was made possible with financial contributions from the B.C. Square and Round Dance Federation and donations from Margetts Meats, Springhouse Women’s Institute and the Poplar Glade Parent advisory group as well as other private donations. More than 300 copies of Moving and Grooving have found their way into various schools in this district and around B.C., Canada, the U.S. and even Saudi Arabia and Australia. “Every province has at least one copy,� Nick says. “That’s quite exciting.� Through the years Nick has

continued to “call� the square dances and Mary Anne “cues� Round dances (choreographed ballroom) for the Williams Lake Square Dance Club’s regular Thursday night dances. “Mary Anne is one of the best round dance cuers in the province,� Nick says. Over the years she has collected some 3,000 instrumental pieces and songs for round, folk, and contra dancing (traditional dancing in parallel lines) and has written the choreography for many of the rounds she cues. Nick has amassed some 1,500 singing calls, arranged from popular songs for square dance and has over 300 tunes for patter music. Both are constantly searching out new music to use and now find it in modern songs such as Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone.’ Recognizing a growing need in B.C. for more square dance callers, Nick recently got together with some callers in the U.S. to write a program that can be used to teach people how to call square dances even if they have never square danced in their lives. The hope is that communities that do not have a caller will encourage perhaps a recreation director to learn to call and thus bring back this fast disappearing art form and traditional dance form to their community. In their spare time, Mary Anne and Nick enjoy gardening. “I’m the hauler of rocks and digger of holes and  Mary Anne is the landscaper,� Nick says. They also enjoy traveling and have taken guided tours to places such as South America, the Galapagos Islands, Ireland, France, Italy, Morocco and Iceland. “After all our trips, we  have decided  that Williams Lake is as good a place as anywhere in the world to live,� Nick says. “We have four seasons and no poisonous snakes, earthquakes, hurricanes or tornados.�

For the first time in many years Williams Lake has a bantam girls rep team. The Timberwolves held their home icebreaker tournament last weekend at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Here, netmidner Raylea Garland stops a shot against Terrace while Brooke Call (No. 4) backchecks in support.

Lakecity soccer teams score big Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Lakecity soccer teams brought home a bus load of medals from the North Shore Girls Soccer Club Thanksgiving Tournament in North Vancouver over the long weekend. The Williams Lake Storm U18 girls rep team defeated Yukon 4-1 in the gold-medal game at Windsor Secondary School, while their counterparts, the Williams Lake Storm U16 girls rep team, won silver, dropping a heartbreaker, 2-1, to Whistler in the final. Brian Hansen, coach of the U18 Storm, said the tournament was a fulfilling way to cap off the season. “The thing that struck me on the way home was every single person played every single minute of every game,� he said. “It was 110 per cent from everybody, for all four of our games.� The team, who have been playing together since late April, grew as players and teammates considerably over the season, he added. At the tournament the U18 Storm went unbeaten winning three games and tying one. “The way they play together as a team — that’s really the neat part,� Hansen said. “They really work well as a unit.� Hansen added the future is bright for the U18 Storm, as around half of

the team’s players will be back next year. “They’re just a really good bunch of kids,� he said. “We got quite a few compliments from teams on not only how well we play but how sportsmanlike we are — so that’s nice to hear.� Meanwhile, the U16 Storm were busy making a name for themselves. Brenda Mann, coach of the U16 Storm, said the team played some amazing tactical soccer. The team beat Port Coquitlam in its opener 1-0, downed North Shore Delta 2-0 and shutout CA United 3-0 before falling to Whistler. “It was a really tight match [in the final],� Mann said. “We had played Whistler earlier in the year and had beaten them so it was a bit disappointing to not be able to do it again but it was a well-matched game. � Goal scorers for the Storm in the tournament were Carly Magnuson, Ashley Straza, Kara Zurak (2), Morgan Schofield (2) and Jasmine Baye (1). “The team was solidly anchored by defensive lines including Natasha Lewis, Bailey Schick, Morgan Lord and Natasha Brown,� Mann said. “Versatile player Eryn Ritchat-Fontaine worked in both defence and offensive lines joined by Sydney McLean, Carly Walters, Ashleigh Lyons and Caylin Tomm through the mid line and Teneal Schick on

Skating club shows best at Autumn Leaves Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake Skating Club glided away from the Kamloops Autumn Leaves figure skating championships with lots to look forward to this season. The club’s skaters, who just began learning new routines in September, joined close to 300 other skaters and 10 clubs from around the province at the meet, which ran Oct. 12-14. WLSC coach Joanne Macnair said she was ex-

tremely pleased with how well everyone skated. “I’m very happy with everyone,” Macnair said. “This one’s always a tough one. It’s the first one of the year and everyone’s skating new programs. “It’s notoriously hard because we’re competing against the Okanagan and Vancouver who are skating 12 months a year. We’ve only been back on the ice for six weeks.” The annual event is part of the Super Series of skating — a stepping stone to the Super Series

2013 Skate Canada BC Sectionals on Nov. 8 in Parksville. Two Williams Lake skaters — Amanda Lane and Dawn Henley — both competed in the Competitive Stream posting solid results. Lane, in the pre-juvenile women’s division, placed sixth. Henley, in the senior bronze women’s division, also placed sixth. In the Star Skate Series five skaters competed. Jessica Rowley and Jade Johnson both received a bronze place-

ment in their Star 3 division. Alana Walters placed sixth in the Star 4 under 13 category, and Mackenna Alexander and

Brooke Dawydiuk both placed fifth in the Star 4 over 13 division. “Now we just come back and polish up after whatever we learned

from Autumn Leaves,” Macnair said. Next up for the WLSC is the Jingle Blades Competition in White Rock from Nov. 23-25.

Following that the club hosts its annual Cariboots ‘N Blades Competition Dec. 7-9 at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

Pregnancy Outreach supports and connects mothers Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer When Bobbie Robson moved to Williams Lake from Quesnel two years ago she was pregnant with her second child. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d accessed a pregnancy outreach program in Quesnel so it felt natural to check out the one in Williams Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been so nice because I came here not knowing anybody. At this program they also have the family outreach for after youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had your baby,â&#x20AC;? Robson says. Attending the program has meant guaranteed outings with her children and helped her meet new people. Through the program she met a friend who was attending Thompson Rivers University in Williams Lake and began wondering if she should enroll in the Applied Business Technology program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talked to Karen Irvine about it and she pushed me a little bit further and suggested Mayor Kerry Cook come to POP to talk to us about the programs at TRU. I talked to her and I signed up.â&#x20AC;? Liberal Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett recently toured the Pregnancy Outreach program in Williams Lake, on the invitation of Cariboo Friendship Society executive director Rosanna McGregor. When Interior Health announced its new toll-free prenatal registry confidential phone line last month for communities including Williams Lake, McGregor wanted to make sure Barnett was aware of the Pregnancy Outreach Program. Co-ordinator Tracy Higgins says the program presently has 100 people accessing its services â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 35 prenatal, 30 postnatal and 40 families. They give vouchers for grocery stores and offer lactation and prenatal classes, often one-on-one. Quite often their clients have a number of stresses, compared to the middle-class population. They may be facing poverty, addiction, domestic violence or may be single parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a lot more on their plate, they need a different kind of prenatal class in a different setting. So we do our own classes here individually and if a woman is single, she may bring her mom, aunt or a friend to be with her at the classes,â&#x20AC;? Harris explains. And when babies are born, one of the lactation facilitators will go out to homes to help with breast feeding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better for mom and baby, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot cheaper than formula and many of our moms are financially strapped.

COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK Friday, Oct. 19 Bernie and Red return The popular husband and wife comedy duo Bernie & Red are returning to the lakecity Friday, Oct. 19 with their brand new show at the Gibraltar Room.

Bobbie Robson and her son Marcus are regulars at Cariboo Friendship Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pregnancy Outreach. Robson, enrolled full-time at Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake, first accessed the program when she moved to Williams Lake from Quesnel two years ago.

During a recent visit to Pregnancy Outreach, Cariboo Chilcotin Liberal MLA Donna Barnett chats with Cariboo Friendship Society executive director Rosanna McGregor, while program co-ordinator Tracy Higgins holds Marcus Robson. Lots of us have extra training with breast feeding to help moms adjust.â&#x20AC;? McGregor says Pregnancy Outreach has a good relationship with the Ministry of Children and Family Development in the area of early infant development. As the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aboriginal infant development worker, Janet Verbeck meets with prenatal moms to establish a relationship so when their babies are born they already feel comfortable meeting

with her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of my role is to support families to help their kids develop to be the best they can be. We offer screens so families can see how their child is developing,â&#x20AC;? she says. If a child is delayed in its development, Vebeck will do further screening and along with the parents will make a development plan and mark the progress made by the child. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some parents will come in and

request an assessment so they can feel confident that they are doing the right things with their kids.â&#x20AC;? Robson says she asked for some assessment for her son because he was starting kindergarten and she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite sure about his abilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Janet did an assessment and there were a couple of things that we had to work on and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great now.â&#x20AC;? Barnett says when she was having babies there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any programs and if you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live around your parents, you went home from the hospital and did the best you could. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These type of programs make healthier children and happier families.â&#x20AC;? McGregor says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting over time how things change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doing infant massage and understanding attachment these were not things we talked about when our children were little. I always enjoy watching the moms here.â&#x20AC;? Harris says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strong focus on early attachment with the moms because some of them have had children apprehended by the MCFD. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about prevention, she points out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say prevention saves dollars. We had a speaker here once from the U.S. and she said every dollar spent on prevention saves eight down the line.â&#x20AC;? Pregnancy Outreach is located at 202 Fourth Ave. North.

Photographer finds inspiration in travelling alone Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Marjorie Clayton is not only an old school photographer, she is an intrepid traveller who prefers to travel alone -sometimes into dangerous places few women would dare to go alone. Her photographs hanging in the Station House Gallery this month depict striking images of marginalized men living in Gambia, Africa. They are captured the old fashioned way on film during a trip she made alone to the country. The photographic series is called ‘At Home with Ysepha’ and is set with stories about each of the men in the photographs under the images. Clayton says she prefers to start a photographic project as a stranger and travel alone rather than with a friend or a team. “It’s intimidating for people to approach you if you are with other people,” Clayton says. “When I am alone I ask people questions and for directions which sparks conversation.” She says she knows there are inherent dangers travelling as a lone female but says: “I have an amazing sixth sense that tells me when there is danger.” She points to one photograph of an individual during the opening of her show taken during an encounter which did make her uncomfortable enough to leave the conversation early. Clayton says her dad Charlie Clayton, who died in June, started teaching her how to

She says her dad worked in the Ontario grain elevators during the day and was a drummer in a jazz band and avid photographer in his off hours. “I have always been interested in culture and people,” Clayton says. At 19 she went to Bolivia for three and a half months on a Canada World Youth student abroad project and visited again later on a Canada Arts Council grant. She has also worked in England for 14 years, and worked for various magazines. She says the work in Gambia evolved out of a photographic project she started in Ghana in 1993. For the trip to Gambia she says her editor put her in contact with

Ysepha, a quiet man in his 30s, whom he had met briefly on a previous trip and who was earning his living as a hustler. “My aim with this and most of my photo essays is to make sensitive, subtle and truthful photographs that allow the audience to understand and feel something for those photographed,” Clayton says in her artist’s statement. ‘At Home with Yusepha’ could not be created without the help and co-operation of Yusepha, his family, friends and fellow hustlers. Together we created this series so that their voices could be heard and their stories told.” In Gambia she says hustlers are known as ‘Bumpsters’ and are looked upon by the public as lazy, delinquent scavengers.  They survive in pov-

Columbian journey, subject of film night Krista Liebe Special to The Tribune The Williams Lake Film Club will show its next film Tuesday, October 23, at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, Gibraltar Room. The Wind Journeys is a very special treat indeed. It is the first Columbian film in our repertoire, shot in the Northern part of Columbia, which is very beautiful and sparsely populated by native Columbians. And as we were told, this is not a tourist area. In the story we meet Ignacio Carrillo, who for most of his life travelled the villages of Northern Columbia, playing traditional songs on his accordion. His accordion is not

just any accordion; this is a legendary instrument said to have once belonged to the devil. As we gather, Ignacio has made a pact with him to become the best player, but he realizes that in turn his personal life is being destroyed. After the traumatic death of his wife, he vows to never play the cursed accordion again. He embarks on one last journey to return the instrument to its rightful owner. On the way Ignacio is followed by a spirited boy determined to become his apprentice. Together they travel the vast Colombian terrain discovering the musical diversity of Caribbean culture. And they will find that destiny has different plans for them. The Wind Journeys is a

Columbian German coproduction and had been nominated for an Oscar for best Foreign Film. Language is Spanish, with English subtitles. I will tell you a bit more about the young production team from Berlin before the screening. They also produced Paradise Now and Waltz with Bashir. The Wind Journeys is not just a film, it is an experience. The cinematography is stunning as is the landscape itself. There is a competition for accordion players which is unforgettable. The music might make you want to dance in the aisles, it is so passionate and beautiful. Remember, all of our proceeds go to the LDA, the Williams Lake Chapter

In Loving Memory of Dale Ray Valburg May 12, 1932 - October 1, 2012 Dale leaves behind his wife Isabelle (Babe) of 53 years, four children - Liz (David) Vaughan, T.C. (Terry) Romine, Kelly Valburg, Chris (Tracy Janzen) Valburg; 10 grandchildren and three great grandchildren; sister Darlene Fuoss and brother Bill Valburg, brother-in-law Bob Jackson, sister-in-law Nancy (Lowell) Iverson and many nieces and nephews in South Dakota. Dale and Babe moved with their kids from a small ranch in South Dakota to Horseď&#x192;&#x;y in 1969 where they continued ranching. Dale quickly became involved in the community attending rodeos and joining many clubs. He also started coaching many young men in the sport of boxing which was just one of Daleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passions and in 1979 he was voted Citizen of the Year. Family always came ď&#x192;&#x17E;rst for Dale and this was proven time and time again through his patience, guidance and love. Friends and neighbours also knew that Dale would be there when called whether it was a midnight call as a country vet, branding, haying or just to have coffee. Dale touched the lives of many and a celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 2 p.m. in the Horseď&#x192;&#x;y Community Hall. A memory album will be created and stories and memories will be treasured. In lieu of ď&#x192;&#x;owers, donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or B.C. Lung Association would be greatly appreciated.

It is with great sadness that the family of Melanie Nothnagel announces her quiet passing on October 11, 2012 in Williams Lake, BC at the age of 95.
