Tremors felt locally A magnitude of 7.7 earthquake occurred offshore in the Haida Gwaii region at 8:04 p.m. on Sat. Oct. 27 and was followed by numerous aftershocks. The strongest aftershock as of Oct. 29 measured 6.3 and occurred at 11:54 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28. The aftershock sequence is expected to continue for weeks with the number and severity of earthquakes decreasing over time, says Natural Resources Canada. The earthquake was felt in several places around the province. While the Williams Lake RCMP confirms it did not receive any calls about the earthquake, some residents reported their blinds shaking, an aquarium’s water swishing, and chandeliers swaying in homes on Toop Road.

If you’re looking to be scared or just have some fun Halloween night in Williams Lake there’s no shortage of spooks to keep you and the entire family screaming. Immediately after school gets out Wednesday Wayne Lucier, political advisor with the Cariboo Chilcotin Metis Association, lets ghosts, goblins and other ghoulish creatures invade his home and yard at 717 Ninth Ave. when he and the association host a haunted house.

“We’ve been doing this seven years now,” he said, noting admission to the haunted house is by donation and will go to Jubilee Place. “Little kids, I’d advise to bring them when the sun’s still shining. Once it gets dark we’re going to be scaring whoever we can and we have a blast. Between the life-sized mannequins that I have and real people it’s hard to tell who’s real and who’s not.” The CCMA haunted house goes until 8 p.m. If you’re downtown stop by Karen’s Place restaurant with the kids.

She’ll be giving away hot chocolate and free goodie bags to all who dare enter her haunted house. “I’m closing the restaurant down so I can have fun with the kids,” said Karen Browne, owner of Karen’s Place. “You’re going to walk in the front door and you’re going to start being scared right from there and it’s going to be a scary haunted house.” Karen’s Place haunted house goes from 5 to 9 p.m. Once you’ve wrapped up trick or treating head over to the Stampede Grounds as the city will light its annual Halloween bonfire at 7:15

p.m. At 7:45 p.m. the fireworks are scheduled to begin. Additionally, the Lion’s Club will be selling hot dogs and hot chocolate. Williams Lake resident Ken Sheen has also carved a log sculpture pumpkin to use for the fireworks. Just south of Williams Lake in 150 Mile House the 150 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department is hosting its annual Halloween celebration. The event, which features fireworks, hot dogs and hot beverages, kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at the 150 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department.

CRD forecasts zero per cent budget increase for 2013 Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

PM 0040785583

The Cariboo Regional District is working toward a zero per cent increase on its 2013 budget. “We’re trying to hold the line on a zero per cent increase,” CRD chair Al Richmond told the Tribune, Friday, Oct. 26. “At the present time it looks quite promising. We identified a couple of areas where we want staff to go back and

look at where some changes can be made.” The CRD began preliminary budget discussions Oct. 25, the day before their regular board meeting on Friday. Richmond said the board felt some of the budget items looked a little “light” and staff needed to make some reconsiderations to bring back to the first formal budget meeting on Nov. 15. “We wondered if there was

enough in some of the budget for reserves and whether staff had looked at some other options of doing something, it’s a matter of looking at the cost allocations and making sure we know as best we can if there’s enough money there. What we don’t want to do in this exercise is to underfund something and cut too far.” One of the other things the board’s been looking at is updating its bylaws in regards to urban farm-

ing. That will take time and money, Richmond said as one example of making sure the budget has room. At the next budget meeting Thursday, Nov. 15 the board will receive more detailed reports from staff. The budget meetings are open to the public. The proposed budget will be presented to residents during three sub-regional meetings in 100 Mile House, Quesnel and Williams Lake in January and February.

South Lakeside robbery suspect arrested Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer An adult male was nabbed by police after a break and enter at a South Lakeside home Thursday afternoon, the RCMP reported Friday. A homeowner called the RCMP saying her residence had been broken into and various articles were stolen. She provided a de-

scription of a suspicious looking male who had been seen in the nearby area, in and around the same time. “There’s a pathway that led from the residence, so when the RCMP arrived they searched the vicinity, but eventually found him a few kilometres away from the residence,” Inspector Warren Brown said.

When they located the male, he attempted to run away, however, the police were able to find and arrest him. “We’re seeking approval for charges of break and enter and possession of stolen property,” Brown said, adding the male is new to the area, but has a criminal record from other areas in Alberta and B.C.

When the resident briefly confronted the male, the male fled and the resident immediately notified the RCMP. Moments later the RCMP apprehended the

Locals pipe up about Enbridge pipeline plans

Benefits, challenges, alternatives discussed

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A small, but mighty protest against the Northern Gateway Pipeline Project took place outside of MLA Donna Barnett’s Williams Lake office Wednesday. Retired family counsellor Herb Nakada said he was the lone protester at the beginning, however, three other people joined him later during the day. “I was outside MLA Donna Barnett’s office at 8:30 in the morning,” he said. While some people looked away when they passed Nakada standing on the sidewalk, those that stopped to make comments were favourable, or blew their horns. Nakada added, however, there was one passerby upset by the protest. “I think he might have thought I was in obstruction to our economy.” Nobody came out of Barnett’s office to acknowledge the protest or invite him in for coffee, Nakada added with a chuckle. “For me, we’ve reached a point where we have to think about unlimited growth. If we keep going the way we are, destroying our environment and extracting resources, I don’t see how it’s sustainable,” Nakada said. He’s more concerned about carbon emissions in the atmosphere, and from his understanding said, “we’re going

backwards.” “The global temperature is going to keep rising, even if we stop today. I could be wrong, but wonder if I can take a chance for my children and grandchildren’s future.” Nakada’s placard stated: “Our pipedreams are our worst nightmare. The guy that was upset said I was wrong, and I told him I hope I’m wrong.” Sixty MLA offices around the province saw protests, including Cariboo North Independent MLA Bob Simpson’s office in Quesnel. “I was in Vancouver, but my office staff said there were about 35 people showed up. For a short notice that wasn’t a bad turn out,” Simpson said. Afterward 12 people came inside and Simpson talked to them through a conference call. “I think this is a good signal. The 3,500 people on the lawn of the legislature on Monday and they’re estimating about 5,000 people participated in the protests at MLA offices province-wide,” he told the Tribune. Simpson told participants he was glad they were participating in the peaceful protest. “I don’t think the federal and provincial governments did Enbridge any favours by allowing them to go into the National Energy Board process. They had to know we don’t have the legal framework around First Na-

tions rights and title to be able to say, yes, no or maybe. If the federal government says ‘yes’ to the pipeline, everybody knows it’s going to go to court,” Simpson said. It doesn’t serve the investment community or companies well to pretend that it’s OK to enter a process, when the known outcome is going to be legal challenges and court challenges, he added. “I think the federal and provincial governments and politicians involved need to sit Enbridge down and tell them there would be no super tankers in the Douglas Channel. It’s just not going to happen.” Having some leadership in that direction, would have avoided all the acrimony and strife that’s evident now. “And what we see now is people like Richard Neufeld and John Reynolds that are pro development stepping in and saying this is a waste of taxpayers’ money. That pipeline isn’t going to go.” Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett met with around 20 protestors at her 100 Mile House constituency office on Wednesday. “The protest was very peaceful and very friendly. I had my picture taken with them. I support freedom of speech and expression by all,” Barnett said, adding she stands with Premier Christy Clark on Enbridge. A3

Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer About 150 people turned out to participate in School District 27’s think tank on the district’s Initial Options Report proposing closure and consolidation of schools in the district. Participants were given about an hour to sit down around eight tables and brainstorm about their ideas on benefits, challenges, and new or alternative proposals to the Initial Options Report, during the think tank held at Columneetza secondary Thursday, Oct. 25. After the brainstoming session someone from each table was delegated to sum up the discussion at their particular table. Recorders kept track of suggestions on large sheets of paper. Trustees then heard formal presentations from a number of presenters. Presenters included representatives from Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools, the Cariboo Regional District, and individuals including street nurse Patti Murphy, Kylie

As participants discussed their ideas about the Initial Options Report designated recorders wrote down the ideas on paper. Philpotts, former school trustee Bruce Mack, and Chief Joe Alponse from the Anaham Band. Think tank suggestions ran the gamut of creating a grades 7 to 9 middle school at Columneetza and making WLSS a grades 10 to 12 high school because it is closer to the city centre, to closing two, not three elementary schools, and selling off unused property in the district. The Initial Options Report proposes closing

Glendale, Kwaleen and Wildwood elementary schools in the Williams Lake area and elevating Grade 7s to the secondary school level. Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools would then be operated as one school on two campuses with a coordinated curriculum. One idea out of the think tank was to move Grade 8s back into the elementary schools rather than moving Grade 7s up to the high schools.

Another idea was to create one large kindergarten to Grade 8 elementary school, leave other elementary schools as kindergarten to Grade 6, and make Columneetza a grades 9 to 12 secondary school In his discussion group Bruce Mack noted that the drop-out rate among First Nations students dropped by 33 per cent when Columneetza and WLSS were converted to grades 8 to 12 secondary schools a few years ago.

Kwaleen PAC/Russet Bluff association launch initiative The Kwaleen Parent Advisory Council and the Russet Bluff Community Association Saturday launched savebcschools. com, a website created in response to the Initial Options Report produced by the School District 27 board this fall. “We felt that was needed to give proper voice to the huge number of people both within the community and outside the community who are strongly opposed to the recommendations set out in the Initial Options Report,” says Kwaleen PAC

president Katie Dyck in the Saturday, Oct. 27 press release. “We recognize the need of the board to be fiscally responsible, but school closures and other significant compromises are not acceptable. Other school districts have managed to carry on without closing schools. “Why can Quesnel manage without closing schools, but not School District 27? Everyone needs to speak out and to take action. If we don’t we’re looking at irreparable damage to critical pieces of our social infra-

structure. “We’re hoping that this website will spur the board to reconsider their proposed course of action and the damage they’re proposing to do and prompt the provincial government to provide our schools with the funding they need to operate properly.” Among its recommendtions the Initial Options Report proposes to close Kwaleen, Glendale and Wildwood elementary schools in the Williams Lake area and make Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary

schools into a Grade 7 to 12 secondary school on two campuses. They are currently grades 8 to 12 schools run independently with some cross-over classes. Dyck says the Save BC Schools website provides background information on the key issues with respect to the Initial Options Report, information regarding the statutory and fiduciary duty of school trustees, contact information for key school district and government personnel, and provides guidance on possible messaging to decision makers.

continue to impact her people today. “He was saying the land his people lived for 500 years were totally taken up. At one point our band didn’t end up with any land at all. It was a sad situation and he was basically begging for what was rightfully his peoples’ in the beginning.” Presently there are approximately 712 registered members in the WLIB and in mid-November the band will be holding a vote for other individuals that want

to transfer to the band or become status Indians and register with the band. “Many of them are because of the new ruling Bill C-3 where they were able to prove that their ancestors or parents were entitled to be registered. Previously the government had a law that when a registered native woman married a non-native they lost their status. “That has been reversed and that’s what’s causing applications to come in now,” Louie said.

only; it cannot order that lands be returned. “If we are successful we will receive a monetary fund determined by the tribunal. They can’t give us back the lands, obviously, because they have all been pre-empted. I’m hoping it will be a fair settlement for our people,” Louie said, adding she would not speculate what they would do with the funds if it is successful. Referring to Chief William’s words in 1879, Louie suggested that they

Island. Louie said she felt the hearings went well. “I believe all parties involved were fair and that it was a good process, however, we’ve been down that road before, and that’s why we’re here.” The WLIB initiated the claim in 1994 and it was ruled in favour of the band, however, the federal government declined it. In 2002, the band pursued the Indian Claims Commission to review the claim and it was found, again, in favour of the band that the federal government had “breached its fiduciary duty” and failed to make the village sites the band claimed as reserves, Louie said. “At that time again, the federal government did not recognize this recommendation, so we were left with no other choice in 2011, but to advance to the specific claims tribunal, which was the basis for the government initiating the process.” Aside from the oral testimony, Judge Slade heard how in 1879, Chief William had written to the British Colonist newspaper, about what was happening to his land. At the time the chief wrote: “The land on which my people lived for 500 years was taken by a white man; he has piles of wheat and herds of cattle. We have nothing — not an acre. Another white man

here, they incur the cost. The process was the only alternative that the band was left with because if we had elected to go to court we would have been looking at a $30 million cost.” The Specific Claims Tribunal was established in 2008 and is aimed at accelerating the resolution of specific claims in order to provide justice for First Nations claimants and certainty for government, industry and all Canadians. It has the power to award monetary compensation

The Specific Claims Tribunal held a hearing into the Williams Lake Indian Band’s (WLIB) village sites claim at Sugar Cane last week. The village sites claim involves allegations that WLIB’s villages and settlements at the foot of Williams Lake and at Missioner Creek in the Glendale area were unlawfully pre-empted by settlers in the mid to late 1800s. This was the first community-based hearing held by the Specific Claims Tribunal. Chaired by the Honourable Judge Harry Slade, it was also the first to include witness testimony. Eight WLIB members testified in the evidentiary portion of the hearing. The witnesses, who included Chief Ann Louie, Councillor Rick Gilbert, elder Agnes Anderson, Jean William, Lynne Gilbert, Amy Sandy, Chris Wycotte, and Kristy Palmantier, provided oral history evidence about the community members’ use of the lands at the foot of Williams Lake and in Glendale, and the importance of these lands to the community today, WLIB communications manager Kirk Dressler noted in a press release. The areas in the claim include around Scout Island, where WLIB presently has IR6, but a very small portion of it, and around the Comer Park Trailer Park area, and down toward the old Soda Creek Road, Louie said. “Our people used to utilize from that end of the lake all the way over to where the Stampede grounds are until the highway causeway was put in and cut that off,” Louie said of the area near Scout

has enclosed the graves in which the ashes of our fathers rest, and we may live to see their bones turned over by his plough. Good friends to the Indian say that her Majesty loves her Indian subjects and will do justice. Justice is no use to a dead Indian. Land, land, a little of our land, that is all we ask from her Majesty.” Chief William was a very active chief, Louie said, adding he was her great grandfather on her mother’s side. He was also the great grandfather of band councillor Rick Gilbert, the grandfather of Agnes Anderson, and great grandfather of Lynne Gilbert. As part of the hearing, Judge Slade viewed the claim area in the Williams Lake and Glendale areas. The federal government is disputing the validity of the claim. Lawyers for the band and for the federal government are now drafting the legal arguments. In the new year the Specific Claims Tribunal will reconvene to hear oral legal arguments from both sides. “Once that’s completed the judge will make a ruling,” Louie said. That ruling will be on whether the federal government is responsible for allowing the lands to be pre-empted, for failing to inquire into the pre-emption of the village sites, failing to cancel the preemption, and failing to set aside the lands as reserves, said WLIB in a press release. Being able to hold the hearings in Sugar Cane alleviated the cost of travel and engaged more community members, Louie said. “If the hearings were heard in Vancouver, WLIB would have had to pay for everything.

Discussion a sign of things to come?

hosties and ghoulies and long-leggity beasties will be on the prowl Wednesday night. Hopefully it won’t rain or snow on them. Speaking of spooks, GD#5 thought someone had invaded our living room last Saturday evening. She was home alone with her laptop when suddenly the hanging plants and lamps started swinging and the wind chimes began chiming. She had a few bad French moments until she Connection checked Diana French the laptop and found that people in different parts of B.C. shared the same experience. What is spooky is that the earthquake tremors were felt so far away from the scene. *** At one time city council meetings were televised live. They used to be the local Tuesday night entertainment. Councillors were pretty independent back then and often the discussions were lively. In recent years, there has been a block of councillors who pretty well agree with each other and meetings have tended to be, well, dullish. The discussion on fire protection at last week’s council meeting was reminiscent of older days. I wonder if it was a one-off or a sign of things to come. *** I have an issue with the B.C. municipal councils, including ours, which are protesting the proposed cutbacks in Greyhound bus services. Greyhound is a private company. It exists to make a profit, but it lost $14.1 million in B.C. this last fiscal year. The company provides a valuable service, no question, but what do the municipalities suggest as a solution, higher fares or subsidies? If subsidies, which level of government should pony up? Are cities prepared to contribute? *** “Let China sleep, for when she awakes, she will shake the world.” Napoleon Bonaparte, 17691821. Since Roman times one country or another has been the Big Shot.

Our Viewpoint

Fans frustrated by NHL The NHL lockout seems set to go on for weeks, if not months, and there is still a chance that there may be no NHL hockey at all this season. While this costs players a lot of money, it may be costing the game itself in more long-term ways. Surveys have indicated that a significant number of NHL ticket buyers are in no rush to go back to the arenas if the lockout is settled. This is particularly true in some U.S. markets, where hockey is the third or fourth most-popular sport in the area. The economic climate in which this lockout is taking place is much different than it was in 2004-05, when the league lost an entire season to another work stoppage. At that time, economic growth in both Canada and the United States was strong. Good times seemed endless, and sports fans were quite ready to spend money on tickets to games. They were more willing to put up with a labour disruption.

In 2012, the U.S. economy remains abysmally weak, after more than four years of job losses and falling real estate prices. Many Americans simply don’t have the disposable income that they had in 2005. If there is no hockey for a year, chances are many of them will forget about the game for a long time to come. While most Canadian fans are much more likely to be back in their seats when the NHL resumes play, there could be a significant drop in TV viewership. Many fans who watch hockey on TV don’t get a chance to get to NHL games. In markets such as Vancouver and Toronto, it is very hard to get tickets to a game, with many season tickets held by corporations. There are plenty of hockey options available to fans in other leagues. Many of them are seeking out those options. The NHL and its players had better hope fans retain a keen interest in their game. - Black Press

arlier this month, together with Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan, I had the chance to announce that DriveABLE assessments will now be available here in Williams Lake, at the Service BC office. This is great news for local seniors, who are now able to complete both inoffice and on-road assessments close to home. For those of you who are not familiar with the DriveABLE service, it is different from the driver medical fitn e s s MLA assessments Musings that all Donna Barnett drivers have to complete at age 80 and every two years after. Only specific individuals are asked to take the DriveABLE assessment, on the recommendation of their physician, when there are concerns about their cognitive functions in regards to driving. In other words, if the doctor is concerned that a client’s ability to drive may be diminished, they are recommended for the assessment. The government covers the costs of the DriveABLE assessment for anyone who is recommended for it, and out of the 140,000 people who took the driver medical fitness assessments last year, only a very small number, less than two per cent, had to take it. Not only is this service now available close to home, but it has also been improved over the past year. Companions can now accompany clients who are taking an assessment, meet the assessor, and ask questions. Also, all clients referred for this assessment now have the chance to take an on-road evaluation if they do not pass the in-office assessment. This means that those who are capable of driving safely are given every opportunity to demonstrate this in a supportive, relaxed environment. There is also a tollfree phone number that clients can call with their questions, as well as a new information guide and a DriveABLE section on the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles website. With these improvements, and with the service being available here in Williams Lake, the DriveABLE assessment is now more supportive, fair and accessible, keeping our roads safer for everyone. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Federal government agreement alarming Editor: On Oct 31, 2012 the federal government plans to quietly approve the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (CCFIPPA) without a single debate or vote. While the CCFIPPA may benefit Canadian companies in China, what will it do for Canadians here at home? It will pave the way for China to spend billions buying-out Can-

ada’s natural resource companies. What about Taseko Mines Ltd and Mt. Polley Mine right here in the Cariboo? How could this affect our environment and our workers wages and job security? Canadian resource corporations and their shareholders might profit from this type of buyout but will the individual Canadian taxpayer benefit? The deal requires Canada to give Chinese companies “the right

could be on the hook for millions in damages. Do you want your tax dollars to be spent this way? This could break our country Canada and the majority of its taxpayers. Then what? The CCFIPPA would tie our hands for 31 years. Canada has already spent millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Belgium is facing a $3 billion suit from one of China’s companies because of

a similar foreign investor agreement. Why would Stephen Harper do this to the Canada he brags about having the best financially managed government in the world? Has Stephen Harper ever listened to Oh Canada? If you would like the answers to these questions please ask them too. Kris Andrews Williams Lake

Canadians should be trained to work at mines Editor: To use the word safety and China in the same sentence is outrageous. China has the worst record of mine disasters (deaths) in the world. What’s in this for B.C.? Mines owned by Chinese interest, mining out coal to send to China by Chinese workers, contributing virtually nothing to our economy. Would these Chinese workers be paying into the Canadian tax system? Newspapers have reported that

up to 2,000 Chinese jobs and up to 800 Canadian jobs will be generated. Those numbers don’t work for me. The argument that new mines would not be developed without the Chinese, might be correct, but that’s only talking about the present. We don’t have to rip everything out of the ground right now. What about the future? To suggest Canadians could not be trained to work in mines is outrageous. Brian Durrell Williams Lake

School District 27 board’s reconfiguration efforts appreciated Editor: I am writing to express appreciation to the school board, teachers and district staff for the difficult task they have taken on in shaping a future for School District 27. While attending the meeting held at Columneetza last week, there were some concrete suggestions for reconfigurations of our current system, but there was also a lot of negativity and aggression towards the board. Many parents opposed the idea of Grade 7s in the high schools, and

Letters aLways weLcome

concerns about negative influences of older kids were raised. In my own experience as a W.L. parent and talking to teachers, this just doesn’t appear to be an issue, and is supported by school counsellors’ surveys of Grade 8s. Bullying and negative influences are more likely within grades than between grades. K-8 was suggested as a preferred option, but having Grade 8s as role models in elementary seems more likely to have adverse implications. There was almost unanimous rejection of the two campus model

for high school, and without details on logistics it is difficult to assess this fairly. Alternatives that seem worth considering are to have one high school at Columneetza, with Nesika as part of the campus and WL housing the schools of choice. Another alternative would be moving Grade 7s into the high schools, but maintaining two separate schools, with Grade 7s taught still following the elementary pattern. Without access to budgets, grade number breakdowns, population projections and other research the board has covered, we do not have

a full picture. We elect a board to take the time to cover this ground and make an informed decision. We also have a district full of experienced and dedicated teachers, and their input should be highly valued; with the daily knowledge of the schools that we don’t have as parents, they will be more familiar with logistics of various scenarios that may not be apparent from the outside. We should also remember that our school boards are working under regulations and budgets imposed at higher political levels.

Some of the frustrations parents feel may be more appropriately directed at the Ministry of Education than locally. Whatever the ultimate decision, hopefully parents will appreciate that the board has looked for solutions to current financial issues, has made time for extensive public consultation, and as a diverse group of local citizens, has chosen what they consider to be the best option for SD27.

With the win the Steelheads improve to 6-0 on the campaign. The loss put an end to a threegame Williams Lake win streak as the local club downed the Omineca Ice, 5-1, the previous night in the lakecity. Following the weekend Williams Lake sits at four wins and two losses in the CIHL East Division. Scoring Sunday for the Steelheads were Ian Smith, Randall Groot and Devon Hayhurst while Tyrel Lucas potted the lone goal on Steelheads’ netminder Mike Wall for the Stamps. Saturday Williams Lake’s scoring came from Ryley Seibert (2G), John Woodyard (2G, 1A) and Nathan Zurak (1G, 2A). Scoring for the Ice was Byron Sam.

Heartbreak for Gillis at Q-school

• • • • • •

Golfer misses advancing by one stroke Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake golfer Mitch Gillis missed advancing to stage two of the PGA Tour’s Qualifying School by a mere one stroke last week in California. The 28-year-old Tour pro fired rounds of 73, 70, 77 and 71 over four rounds of golf during the first qualifying stage at the Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, CA. to finish tied for 20th in the field. The top 18 players advanced to stage two. Players who advance through all three stages of the PGA Tour’s Qualifying School earn their PGA professional cards for the following year. “My short game is what held me back from scoring better

during my first two rounds,” Gillis told the Tribune. “I shot 73, 70 in good conditions but failed to make putts and capitalize on my opportunities while each of my mistakes cost me. “It was a bad combination and put me four strokes out of qualifying after two rounds.” Round three, Gillis said, was pounded by 65-kilometre-per-hour winds. “I am normally a great wind player and I did strike the ball well but again I failed to make a few key par putts and missed the few birdie opportunities I had,” he said. Heading into the final day Gillis sat about four strokes back of a qualifying spot and needed to put a strong fourth round together. “I played very solid all day and found

Lakecity historian and veterinarian turns 90 Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune A small group of friends gathered at Scout Island Nature Centre Saturday afternoon, Oct. 27 to celebrate John Roberts’ 90th birthday. John reiterated some family lore about how 90 years and one day earlier his mother broke the family dog out of the dog catcher’s cart. “The next day I was born,” he said. No wonder John became a veterinarian. He told another dog story about how the family German shepherd would enthusiastically ride in the front of his canoe when he paddled across the lake to work on their new house at the end of South Lakeside. Williams Lake was a sleepy little town in the late 1950s and his veterinarian practice wasn’t brisk. “Every half hour I’d look across the lake with binoculars at our house on North Lakeside. If a client arrived at the clinic, Anna would hang a white sheet on the clothesline, then the dog and I would paddle back across the lake to serve them.” Shortly after setting up his veterinary practice in Williams Lake, John purchased a Super cub airplane so he could serve the vast ranching community of the Cariboo Chilcotin. “It was the only way I could make my services affordable to the ranchers by avoiding those rugged roads,” he said. Anna remarked that John purchased his airplane before they owned their own home in Williams Lake. In those days the airport was located on Ninth Avenue, and John always had to check for cattle on the airstrip before landing. He later equipped his Super cub with floats and skis and the flying veterinarian built a little lakeshore hangar on their property next to Williams Lake. Over the years John has taken a keen interest in the history of Williams Lake and area. He was instrumental in helping to establish the original archives at the Williams Lake Library, and has had an active interest in the environment. “I would say John’s main claim to fame is as an historian,” says Diana French, who is also a long-time regional historian. “He started the archives and was involved in the museum from away back – not so much with the current  one but if he hadn’t kept things going there probably wouldn’t be a current one,” French says. “I would  rate him the number 1 historian for the Cariboo Chilcotin. John has done a lot of research and has collected  a huge amount of

community Big Brothers, Big Sisters matches make lifelong difference for kids LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune Sharing your life with a child through Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) has been proven to provide satisfaction and enjoyment for kids, adults and teens. BBBS is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and Williams Lake executive director Lorraine Levitt says that a big thank you goes out to two ‘Bigs’ who have been volunteers for 15 years. “We owe so much to volunteers like Jen Clark and John Gooding,” she says. “Volunteer continuity is a gift: studies show that the longer the match, the greater impact it has on the child and the higher the outcomes.” From Grade 3 to the end of high school kids go through a number of significant changes, says Lorraine, who adds that with a Big Brother or Sister, kids have another source of support—someone who enjoys a personal relationship with them. She says that BBBS has kids on a list waiting for a special adult in their lives as a Big Brother or Big Sister. “This is where adults spend time with a child in the community. You incorporate a child into your life, spending a few hours a month for

a year with them,” she says. “It can be as simple as washing the car, renting movies or going for a hike.” Levitt has been with BBBS for 25 years, from the time it was a two-drawer filing cabinet under the basement stairs to a store-front building with a staff and approximately 200 volunteers—something she calls “an amazing journey.” She said that opportunities for making a dif-

ference in the life of a child include in-school mentoring, and that BBBS is in great need of adults who can share an hour a week in an elementary school for the 10-month school term. “They spend an hour doing fun recreational activities with a kid: games, crafts or kicking a soccer ball. It’s building a relationship with kids based on having fun,” she explained. “The children are chosen by school personnel—kids who are

on the brink of success, and who need extra support and encouragement to help them achieve their full potential.” There is a room in each elementary school set aside for BBBS ‘matches’ with games, books and craft supplies available. She said that you don’t have to have prior experience or intensive training to be an inschool mentor an hour a week. “We give you some tools and we match you on a compatibility basis so that the adult and the child enjoy the same types of activities. We also provide match support throughout the year, ensuring that it’s a positive experience for everyone,” she continued. “In-school mentoring takes place during school hours and can be arranged to suit your work schedule. Many organizations allow staff paid time for this time with a kid: it’s a great way for a business to support the future of kids in our community.” Big Brothers and Big Sisters has developed a vital program in enhancing the lives of students, according to one Nesika Elementary School counsellor. “It is amazingly simple yet drastically effective-the bond between a

positive volunteer and a younger child. We see the benefits of this through the unique opportunity that this program provides. Students’ self-esteem and confidence increase. The children are happier and develop a healthy connection to the school. In many cases it becomes the child’s highlight of their day. We see children start to make positive choices and to develop stronger social skills.” Of all of the programs that come and go in public schools, the In School Mentoring Program has one of the longest lasting positive effects for the kids who participate in it, a Cataline Elementary School counsellor explained. The counsellor saus Kids still talk about their mentors years after the match has finished, and I have a continual flow of kids to my office asking if they, too, can get a mentor. “We have had mentors from ages 15 to 80-plus, with all levels of experiences and interests,” Levitt says. “All you need is an interest in making a difference in the life of a child.” For more information about BBBS programs, phone 250-398-8391, visit www.bbswlake. com or email lorraine.

Positive News in Economic Indicators Report Council received the Third Quarter Economic Indicators Report at its Oct. 23rd meeting. It contains economic statistics from the City of Williams Lake (such as building permits and business licenses), the provincial and federal governments (unemployment rate) and the Northern BC Real Estate Board (average house price and properties sold). It provides a snapshot of the first three quarters of 2012, compared to the first three quarters of previous years. The report gives an “at a glance” look at some of the economic indicators in our community, in addition to an update on the Business Expansion and Attraction Strategy (BEAS) implementation. The report shows an increase in new home construction, business licenses issued, airport passengers, and an improvement in the unemployment rate, compared to the same period in 2011. The City is developing an online investment portal for Williams Lake, and draft results of the City’s placebranding project are expected in the next few weeks.

• Choose costumes that aren’t too long and that are made of pale coloured, fire-retardant fabrics with reflecting bands. Don’t forget to put reflecting ribbons on bicycles, skate boards, and accessories such as brooms and swords. • Makeup is safer than a mask. • Keep a flashlight handy when walking the streets. • Ensure that your children know where the Neighbourhood Watch houses are in your area and plan their route with them if you won’t be accompanying them. • Tell them it isn’t a race, that they should walk on the sidewalks and not on the road, and that they should only cross the street at intersections and crosswalks. • Ensure that they only visit houses where the porch light is on and that they accept their treats from outside the door. Remind them not to step into strangers’ houses or get into cars. • Make sure they understand that you will be checking all the treats they collect before they can eat any and that you will be throwing away t Drivers must be doubly cautious when driving along streets crowded with trick or treaters, any with opened especially as their small size can make them wrappers.

Great costumes at a low cost This Halloween, why not let your children set off on the right foot in search of candies: disguise them in scary outfits that you create yourself by simply raiding the closets. Making an inexpensive Halloween costume is child’s play, and it will allow you to save a few of your hard-earned dollars. Here are two classics that are easy to reproduce. Witch: raid your closet for a black dress or a black skirt and sweater (orange, red, or black) that can be glitzed up or grunged down. Accessorize the outfit with black, striped, or fishnet stockings combined with black shoes. Choose a store-bought hat or make a homemade paper hat and decorate it with tulle and fake spider webs. Use nail polish to colour fingernails black or create terrifying claws with cardboard rolled into long cones and attached to each finger with glue or sticky tape. Vampire: this is one of the simplest costumes to make. All you need are some store-bought pointy teeth, a white shirt tied cinched at the waist with a red scarf, plus black pants and socks. Finish it off with a cape that you can make with a piece of black fabric or even a black garbage bag. Presto! In both cases, makeup will give the finishing touches to the costume. Use an image from a children’s book or from the Internet for inspiration.
