City reviews status for New Prosperity hearings Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The City of Williams Lake is hoping to gain interested party status for the environmental panel review of the New Prosperity Mine project. Having missed the Sept. 28 deadline for applying, the city applied to the Canada Environmental Assessment Agency on Jan. 29 for consideration. At the committee of the whole meeting Jan. 29, acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall said Mayor Kerry Cook will have an opportunity at the panel hearings to welcome the panel. The city, however, does not feel that five minutes will be “long enough or suitable,” so it has made an application to be a presenter. “We’re hoping we are going to be successful. We haven’t indicated at all what we’re presenting. We just want a slot,” Goodall said. During the last review, Cook wrote a lengthy presentation.

“I said the city is walking a very fine line of respecting and building working relationships with First Nations as well as being aware of socioeconomic indicators. I talked about where we were as a community and why we were supporting the project,” she recalled. At the meeting, council received letters from the Tsilhqot’in National Government and the Fish Lake Alliance, requesting the city not to seek interested party status and refrain from stating its support of the mine. The letters reminded mayor and council that in its own resolution, council said it would support the project if it met provincial and federal environmental standards and if First Nations had been adequately consulted. Council is elected to speak on all issues, said Coun. Sue Zacharias. “We have to think about what is best for the economy of our city and our citizens and it does affect the whole region. I don’t know why we wouldn’t support something of this

nature when we’re already supporting other resource-based industries. I feel quite confident in the respect of relationship building. We’ve made tremendous progress with our First Nations neighbours.” Coun. Ivan Bonnell suggested council needs to be clear. “There were two tests that we said were conditional to our support. The environmental one will be done independently, council will not be able to answer that question. “When it comes to the level of consultation and the effect for First Nations, it would be very appropriate for council to ask the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs what steps have they taken to ensure there’s been adequate consultation.” Whether council will be happy with the answers, Bonnell said he didn’t know. “When we get to it, we can determine our steps from there.” Coun. Laurie Walters asked if council was answering the questions posed by the TNG and Fish Lake Al-

liance in the letters. “The big part of this is they are wanting us to change our original support for the project. We’re kind of doing a dance, it’s not properly addressing it. We might still have to come with another follow up to this because I think now of a few times where they’ve come right out and said ‘can you’ change your support?” Cook said in a meeting with the TNG and during the council meeting in December where the TNG made a presentation, council said it is not changing its original position. “We’re just getting more information, which is consistent with our resolution,” Cook said. Appearing by speaker phone, Coun. Geoff Bourdon said if council seeks information from the proponent it needs to get information from the TNG as well. “If we’re going into it saying that we need to listen to both sides and that’s important to us, then we cannot just say there’s adequate consultation without making sure there’s adequate consultation.”

CRD anticipates decreased 2013 budget Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The Cariboo Regional District is confident it will decrease its budget by 1.2 and 1.3 per cent in 2013. “We do have some additional services being provided in the North Cariboo so those people won’t see as high of a decrease as we’re seeing in other areas, but overall our tax requisition is going down this year,” CRD chair Al Richmond said. The decrease is largely due to the elimination of the debt for the libraries in Quesnel and 100 Mile House. “That goes back to fiscal management. We put money away and saved so we didn’t have to borrow all the money to do the job. We were able to pay them off in five years. We’re seeing monetary savings because of good fiscal management,” Richmond said. Projections show the overall budget — made up of grants and tax requisitions — will continue to decrease through the next five years. In 2012 it was $42,122,507, in 2013 it will be $38,405,955, and by 2017 it will be $34,218,70. Richmond said part of the decrease is due to the scarcity of grant funding, which means a slow down in capital building and capital expenditures going into the near future. “We saw some

For example in 2011, we did some water upgrades. A reservoir at 108 Mile, water system work at Horse Lake and Canim Lake. They all roll into an overall budget, making it high.” An old debt from borrowing for the hospitals in Williams Lake, Quesnel and 100 Mile House will be down to $25,000 by 2015, which will then result in the elimination of the Cariboo Regional Hospital District, leaving one Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District. The Cariboo-Chilcotin Regional Hospital District replaced the

Cariboo Regional Hospital District as a result of a boundary amendment (the two RHDs represent similar but not identical areas). This has been the plan since the creation of the new CaribooChilcotin Regional Hospital District. Historically the CRHD plan was based on funding for $20 million every 10 years to the appropriate health authorities. “The CRHD was borrowing to fund the capital requirements which resulted in annual interest costs of $1.5 million,” chief financial officer Scott Reid said.

A plan was put in place setting the residential tax rate at $75 per $100,000 of assessed value for property tax purposes, to accumulate and set aside funds or reserves which could be used for future capital requirements without resorting to borrowing and interest charges. “In 2009, after three years at this level of taxation, the CCRHD board was able to decrease the residential tax rate from $75 per $100,000 of assessed value to $69 per $100,000 of assessed value. The current 10-year plan, which went into effect in 2011, calls for a reduction in taxation each year until the residential tax rate reaches $50 per $100,000. “With taxation levels as outlined above, and with actual capital expenditures over the same span of time, we anticipate capital reserves in excess of $20

million for year-end 2012,” Reid said. Public budget meetings wrapped up with the final one in Williams Lake on Feb. 3. “The one in Williams Lake was fairly well attended with some good input and some good dialogue,” Richmond said. “I am disappointed overall with the attendance we had, but that could mean either we’re doing a good job or the timing didn’t work for folks.” People attending the meetings could take away a sheet outlining tax rates. “Some folks say when they look at the overall understanding of where the budget’s going they’re happy with it, other people are sticklers for detail and want to talk about every single line there is and that’s fair too.” For 2014, public budget meetings will begin in September, he added.

Opposition critic for seniors visits WL Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer It has been almost three years since Kootenay West NDP MLA Katrine Conroy visited Williams Lake. So when she visited the community on Wednesday she said it was rewarding to see Deni House open again. “I was the seniors critic when Deni House was shut down,” Conroy said in her visit with the Tribune during a stop in Williams Lake last week. “We raised it in the legislature and knew how passionate people in the area were about the facility. “It was so good to be in the facility today, see it operating and see that it’s obviously made a difference.” While in the lakecity, Conroy met with locals in her capacity as Official Opposition Critic for Seniors and Longterm Care.

“There were some people from the Seniors Advisory Council and some people just interested in coming out and talking about their issues, a retired doctor, younger seniors, a nice mix of people.” Conroy heard concerns about accessibility of services and home support. There was fairly lengthy discussion about access to services in Kamloops versus Prince George. “I heard that they prefer to go to Prince George but because you’re in the Interior Health Authority, Kamloops is your hospital.” One person told Conroy he was able to go to Prince George and back in one day to see a specialist, rather than expending three days to see a specialist in Kelowna. “I can understand why people are expressing frustrations. It’s something that

needs to be raised with IH.” In the region to hear concerns from residents, Conroy said the NDP will not roll out its health care platform until after they see the budget. The party is working on it and will finalize it then. “We can’t promise the moon if there’s not the money to do it. We will have to be very practical about what we’re offering. It kills me though because there are so many needs in this province with health care issues and needs for seniors.” Ideally, she’d like the NDP to have a plan in place that acknowledges that all needs cannot be met immediately, with the intention of trying to tackle them one by one. “I worry about what the budget is going to be. We know what we were told last time, that there was going to be a very small deficit, and

with representatives of the Cariboo Friendship Centre, toured Sunset

Manor, and met with Mayor Kerry Cook while in the city.

Ruling in Yung case set for April 22 Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Provincial court Judge Randall William Callan will deliver his decision in the assault case against Const. Andy Yung on April 22 in Williams Lake. Yung is charged with one count of assault against Jamie Haller, who suffered injuries while in custody of the Williams Lake RCMP in September 2010. Haller was 17 years old at the time. Callan reserved judgment at the end of a three-day trial in Williams Lake provincial court, which ran Jan. 21 - 23, after hearing evi-

dence from police, civilian witnesses, a civilian employee at the RCMP cells, Yung, the complainant Jamie Haller, her mother Martina Jeff and their family doctor. Haller testified she was punched repeatedly in the face while handcuffed in the back of a police car.   Yung testified he hit her several times in the face after she had kicked him in the face, and held him in a scissor-lock with her legs and would not let go. In his final arguments, defence lawyer Rod Gregory said Yung and the other police officers responded to a call for help that night, and did

everything they could to help Haller. They tried to calm her down, and were met with profanity, agitation, assaultive and completely irrational behaviour, despite their repeated attempts to give her assistance, he said, adding she was also agitated against her mother when she arrived at the scene. Gregory suggested Haller’s recollection of the events was a “memory of convenience,” and that she only remembered portions of the incident. When Yung was cross-examined, he said he did not want to do what he had to do, Greg-

ory added.  “No one there wanted to take this young person to the detachment. He didn’t want to have to touch her. He testified quite candidly, ‘I hit her as hard as I could because the pain technique that I used for one or two seconds wasn’t working.” Gregory described it as an unusual set of circumstances for the police, who were trying to help someone who they perceived to be a victim of a crime. He urged Callan to find that Crown had not proven the case beyond a reasonable doubt. Crown counsel Lori Stevens said the judge

should and can reject Yung’s evidence, describing it “as inconsistent, unreliable and in some instances almost fantastical.” Stevens said Yung described himself as concerned for his safety, yet he opened the car door to try and calm Haller down, putting his face in the car with no consideration of being kicked or spat at. Additionally, she said it was not an emergency situation, even if Haller was kicking the police car. “He was attempting to stop an already controlled person. She was handcuffed. She wasn’t going anywhere.”

She described Haller as a young, angry, vulnerable girl, who on the night of the incident, was intoxicated.  “In my submission, the strongest evidence are the photos of the injuries themselves,” Stevens said, adding Haller suffered through something that caused her serious injury.  In closing, Stevens said Yung should be convicted of assault. She suggested he could have taken Haller to the detachment, located five minutes away, and then tried to investigate. “Instead, his overriding concern is for the car.” When cross-examined by Stevens, Yung said

the police were trying to determine whether or not Haller could go home with her mother instead of going to city cells. After the trial Williams Lake RCMP Insp. Warren Brown said police officers are not above the law. “Where there is an allegation that they have broken the law it’s important to have that allegation investigated, as independently as possible, and if there is evidence of an offence, they will be brought before the courts. That has happened in this case. I will respect the outcome and findings of that decision,” Brown said.

Salvation Army requests city to apply for gaming grant Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The Salvation Army in Williams Lake is asking the city to apply for a gaming grant on its behalf. “If the city applied for gaming funds for a grant for the food bank, I suspect we could get $100,000. 100 Mile House received $60,000,” Salvation Army Captain Claudine Kadonaga told council during a presentation at its regular meeting Tuesday, Feb. 5. Hopeful the city will enter into a partnership,

Kadonaga advised the funds would help because her staff is “burning out.” “It’s hard on the sustainability side of things,” she said. To receive accreditation for United Way funding, the Salvation Army will also establish a community advisory board, for which Kadonaga hopes city council will provide a representative.

In 2012, they gave out $964,000 worth of food through the hampers and perishable goods program, and $148,000 in soup kitchen value serving meals and providing lunches to students at Marie Sharpe elementary school. Council will discuss the request at a committee of the whole meeting, Mayor Kerry Cook said.

The Cariboo Regional District is in receipt of the recently released City of Williams Lake Questions and Answers document regarding Williams Lake fringe fire protection services. The CRD will be addressing these questions in full detail during next week’s public meeting which takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 5:30 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room of the Cariboo Memorial Complex. During the meeting, the CRD will also present and discuss the results of the recent survey it conducted with Williams

This week at PLAY

Your Preschooler and… Play Play is the “work” of children. Most of your child’s early learning takes place through play. Through play, your preschooler will explore and discover the world and his or her role in it. In playing, your preschooler is having fun which can nurture a love for learning. By providing a variety of different play activities and exposing your child to different types of situations, you will be sure the brain receives the stimulation it needs to thrive. Typically, a child of three will engage in imaginary play, tell stories and create characters. Your preschooler will play alone most of the time, but may be increasingly able to play with others. A sense of ownership may be developing. At age three, children can typically throw, catch, and kick a ball as well as pedal a tricycle – be sure your child wears an approved and well-fitting helmet whenever on a tricycle. Many three-yearolds will have the hand-eye coordination to try more complex activities.

Try some of these with your preschooler: 1. Family members are your child’s favourite playmates. Make time to laugh and play together. Make play a part of the things you do with your child every day. Enjoy! 2. Balance your child’s schedule. It is important that your child have access to both structured activities and free playtime. 3. Keep a variety of books and odds and ends from around the home on hand for down times. If you have them in your home, puzzles or art supplies can be enjoyable. Rotating toys allows your child to experience something new. 4. For imaginative playtime, have some of your old clothes for “dress up” and have every day objects that will allow your child to create his or her own “pretend” stories. Clothes and shoes with different openings are good to practice lacing, zippering, buttoning and tying. 5. Pretend along with your child. Encourage the imagination. At a make-believe tea party, ask: “Is your cup of tea too hot?” 6. Provide opportunities for your child to make personal choices about play activities. Decision making will increase your child’s sense of confidence and enjoyment. 7. Set up opportunities for your child to be messy with glue, fl our and water playdough, water or paint. Encourage your child’s creativity by proudly displaying their creations. 8. Play outside. Encourage your child to delight in some fresh air and fun activities like playing in the garden or at the park. 9. Use bean balls or bags to play throwing and catching games with your child. These can be made at home by sewing up scraps of cloth with dried beans or peas inside. 10. Make sure your preschooler is safe while playing. Use age appropriate toys and materials and play equipment and a well-fi tting helmet if using bike or scooter.

CAO facing interesting times

T

hursday is Valentine’s Day, a day we associate with love. Romantic love takes the lead to be sure, but a friend (thank you Diane) forwarded me an e-mail that begs to be shared. It may sound mushy to some but it’s OK to be mushy at  Valentine’s.    The story goes that a teacher asked her students to name the seven wonders of the world. Most listed the usual man-made or natural physical wonders (pyraFrench mids, Connection T a j Diana French Mahal, Grand C a n yon). One girl had a different list. She named “to see, to hear, to touch, to taste, to feel, to laugh, and to love” as the seven wonders.  I’d add   “to share” to the list.                                                                                                                                           *** Williams Lakers will welcome the city’s new chief administrative officer, Don DeGagne. We wish him well. He is facing interesting times as council has many issues on its plate — fringe area fire protection, union negotiations, airport runway, grumps about snow removal, Prosperity Mine, community forest, South Lakeside road, swimming pool, water for Woodland  Drive — what have I missed? Many B.C. politicians are no doubt relieved that the doughty John Doyle is leaving his post as B.C.’s Auditor General. Mr. Doyle was not the government’s favourite person, mainly because he did what he was supposed to do. He blew the whistle (loudly) when he found something amiss in government affairs. As B.C. citizens, let’s hope his successor is equally diligent. The question is though, will whoever is elected in May carry out the recommendations Mr. Doyle made over the last six years? How many got to enjoy our very first Family Day holiday? How many actually got  the holiday? For workers, it depended on where you work whether you were lucky or not.  With Friday being a Pro D day for the school district,  students had a four day weekend and I can’t imagine any of them being sad about that.   Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune. She is a former Tribune editor, retired teacher, historian, and book author.

Our Viewpoint

Family Day not free for all This weekend marked B.C.’s first Family Day statutory holiday, which for most people broke that long three-month stretch between New Year’s Day and Easter. B.C. residents now enjoy 10 stat holidays (11 if your employer is nice enough to throw in Boxing Day), which ties us with Saskatchewan as the most generous province for the coveted long weekend. By contrast, Nova Scotians and Newfoundlanders only have five. However, it’s important to remember not everybody can afford an extra day off. When Premier Christy Clark announced the creation of Family Day in October 2011, she expected that by now a better economy would balance out the extra costs to businesses. But many small retailers and companies are struggling as the economy remains flat at best. They are paying out more due to a higher minimum wage, and all are

Municipal and provincial governments will also shell out more for essential service employees and the hundreds of thousands of people on the public payroll. This holiday can be seen as rather blatant pandering to the electorate by the B.C. Liberals, or an attempt to give hard-working B.C.ers a break – perhaps it’s a bit of both. And while the majority of us enjoyed the Monday off work, it’s important to acknowledge the many small business owners in our community who saw it as nothing but an added burden. - Victoria News

esterday was B.C.’s first ever Family Day. I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend with your loved ones! Did you get a chance to take advantage of the free skating or swimming at the recreation centre? Perhaps you were able to spend the day at home with your family or out-of-town relations. Our government realizes how important it is to support British Columbian families, and that’s why we created the Families First agenda. We realize that in times of global economic uncert a i n t y, MLA our govMusings ernment m u s t Donna Barnett do even more to help families make ends meet, help the most vulnerable among us, and keep our communities safe. I know it can be an expensive challenge to raise a family. Our government has gone to work to find practical ways to make things affordable for you and your family. For example, we’re committed to keeping your taxes low and government spending under control so we can deliver substantial benefits to B.C. families. As our economy continues to grow and diversify, we’re putting in place supports that help all British Columbians share in the benefits. Under our Families First agenda, we’ve tailored government programs to assist B.C.’s most vulnerable families and we’re introducing balanced reforms to our income assistance policies. Another cornerstone to our Families First agenda — safe communities, strong families. With your input on community values and safety, we’re making the justice system more effective and accessible. You’ve also shared your ideas to improve policing in the province. Just as we followed the wishes and suggestions of British Columbians who contributed their views last summer that helped us shape the BC Family Day statutory holiday, your ideas and feedback concerning BC’s Families First agenda — family affordability, supports for vulnerable families and safe communities — are been listened to. With your input, let’s make B.C. even better for families! Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.

More Viewpoints School district’s decisions don’t make sense Editor: Closing Glendale Elementary, which holds two amazing programs, balanced calendar and French Immersion, with 140 kids and keeping Wildwood open which has 24 kids and one Shuswap program doesn’t make sense. Isn’t it easier and less costly to place one program and 24 kids into a different building, than to put 140 kids and two programs, into two different buildings and portables? Nothing against Wildwood, and I’m not a racist; but this has become to feel like a race issue to many in

the community. Many are saying this because if you seriously look at what has happened, it does not make any sense. Yes, Wildwood’s program is funded by the government but that doesn’t change if they move. The argument about the McLeese Lake kids having more bus time, some already go to other schools. So why is it still open? A question the board wouldn’t answer. In closing Glendale they are separating friends, and the environment we have worked hard to maintain. It takes the privilege of putting your children into different programs if

they wish to try because it is at the same school. Glendale asked Wildwood and Kwaleen to join their family, while keeping their programs. Why did the board not try that option? Using Glendale’s low numbers is a sad excuse to close since 140 kids is a whole lot more than 24 kids. Glendale’s program struggled to grow because the board hasn’t left it alone in five years with threats of closure. How about this; keep Glendale open, put French on the balanced program and they will soon see the benefit and add Wildwood to the mix. Now you have three programs

under one roof. Now that makes sense. The schools they plan on putting Glendale kids into are almost full and need to have portables. If these schools are close to being full how can the balanced calendar or French programs grow? Fact is, schools won’t accept more kids if they are full, despite whether the programs are full or not? When it comes to the bus drop off for Nesika; it’s at Columneetza. That doesn’t make me feel safe for any young child. There are many ways they can get buses into the Nesika lot; they just have to do it. Example, use the back road

behind Columneetza as a bus access only to Nesika. Nesika’s field is not fenced. Instead, surrounded by unknown houses and trees, so anyone can come and go, unseen, from the grounds at anytime, from anywhere; even WL high school property is fenced. Nesika is not a bad school; I just think the school board can do better for our kids especially when they just spent $170,000 on WIFI upgrades for the high schools. When do we say it’s enough? Elementary kids need place too. Nancy Jalbert Williams Lake

Residents abusing two-hour parking limit

Overwhelmed by community support

Editor:

Editor: Thank You, thank you, thank you! We were extremely overwhelmed by the Williams Lake community’s response for the Sunday, Jan. 27 benefit at the Elks’ Hall on our behalf. We’ve already seen some of pictures as well as a DVD taken that wonderful day. We are only now beginning to realize what was happening during this extraordinary event as well as the preparation required by so many to “pull it off.” To see the long stretch of tables on either side of the hall, all filled with silent auction slips and so many impressive donated items and, more importantly, to see our family, friends, musicians, band students, fellow coworkers and club members, neighbours, those wonderful volunteers, and on and on ... present that day and enjoying each others’ company with a laugh, song, or story. You people take our breath away! How can we ever thank you or demonstrate our gratitude? You have brought tears of joy to our eyes and even though you have made us feel like we’re the most important and loved couple in the world, we are humbled by your thoughts, prayers, and actions. It would truly be near impossible to express our appreciation for all you’ve done for us. Please know we are so grateful for everyone. We hope to be home soon. Much Love to All!

I would like to address the lack of available parking for customers on Second Avenue. This street is zoned for two-hour parking, however, most of the people parking on this street park there for the entire day. These people are the employees and owners of various businesses along this street. There is all-day parking available; a short fiveminute walk away. However, most

would choose to park as close to their work place as possible. This affects the businesses along Second Avenue because patrons will go where parking is more readily available. In the service industry convenience and efficiency is very important. Customers do not want to spend 10 minutes of their lunch hour looking for parking. I have brought this up with the city and they do have parking attendants enforcing the bylaws.

They mark these vehicles with chalk and return two hours later to see if the chalk mark is still there. Unfortunately these people who park on Second Avenue all day will go out before the two hours and wipe the chalk mark off or move their car a few metres. In effect, there is no parking ticket issued to these individuals. I witness this time and time again. Perhaps, they need to take down licence plates to enforce the twohour limit.

I want customers who come to businesses on Second Avenue to have the most parking available to them for their convenience. This benefits all businesses and employees of these establishments. I would ask and encourage everyone to please park in the city’s designated free parking areas. Besides, wouldn’t a short walk every day be great for everyone’s health? George Cheung Williams Lake

Game banquet: a taste of living in the wild Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer The Sacred Heart banquet hall was filled to capacity Feb. 2 for the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association’s annual game banquet and awards night. Members donated a wide variety of fish and wild game for the banquet that was cooked up to perfection by True Food Services. Appetizers included deer sausage rolls, sweet and sour cougar, moose sausage, bison meatballs, salmon quiche and lemon baked trout. The main buffet was laden with roast deer, elk and beef, bear lasagna, venison cabbage casserole, all game sauerbraten, mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, peas, Asian noodle salad, tossed salad and buns, all followed by an assortment of desserts. The silent auction included a wide variety of items donated by local businesses, from resort stays, to hiking boots, hunting knives, flashlights, a unique world globe that turns by itself, to clocks, gift certificates of all sorts and even a diamond ring. Master of ceremonies Judy Jenkins says the event was a very good fundraiser for the club which netted approximately $7,000 after expenses. She says the diamond ring donated anonymously brought in about $650 and the two rifle raffles raised about $1,100 each.  Marge Butler won the draw for the .243 rifle. Dylan Meldrum won the draw for the .270 rifle. Kyle Gysel won the fishing draw and Lee Jackman won the hunting draw. Lee Jackman and Ed Oliver were the awards presenters.

Hunting and fishing are activities enjoyed by many people in the Cariboo-Chilcotin, not only for the enjoyment of being able to hike some of the most beautiful country in the province, but for more practical reasons such as filling the freezer with food for the winter. Here Montana Reid accepts the first place ladies trophy for mule deer typical (144 4/8) from presenter Lee Jackman.

The Williams Lake Stampeders, after advancing to the second round of the Central Interior Hockey League playoffs following a twogame sweep of the Lac La Hache Tomahawks, return home to face their secondround playoff opponent, the Quesnel Kangaroos.

sports Young wrestlers claim first medals The Williams Lake Wrestling Club laced up their boots and headed to Kelowna recently for the Ogopogo Invitational Wrestling Tournament. Ten members of the Black and Blue competed at the event, held Jan. 29. “This was one of the very few tournaments where all age groups can compete, ranging from kindergarten to Grade 12,” said Sonia Conrod, head coach and president of the WLWC. “This was a first tournament for many of our younger athletes. “It was nice to see parents and family members and friends of the Black and Blue there to cheer on and support the kids. They represented Williams Lake with great pride.” In the primary division, Grade 2 student Jacob Worthington fought his way to his first medal of the season, bringing home a bronze medal in the 25-kilogram weight class. Also in the primary division Grade 2 grappler Coda Mclain just missed the podium, taking fourth in the 29kg class. Coda’s brother Chevy Mclain, Grade 3, battled his way to a silver medal in the same weight class. “This was their first tournament ever and they did amazing,” Conrod said. Two WLWC members competed in the intermediate division.

Grade 5 student Zane Barr won silver in the 43-kg class, while Nathan Preston battled to a gold medal in the 49-kg division. Five of the club’s high school athletes, Conrod said, showed great enthusiasm and support for the WLWC’s younger wrestlers. “They encouraged them throughout the tournament and helped coach during matches, as well,” Conrod said. “From my experience the little guys really look up to the older members of the team. It’s one of the few sports that has such a variety of ages together on a team.” In the Schoolgirl Division (grades 7-8) Columneetza’s Danielle Schultz won gold in the 47-kg class. In the Cadet Division (grades 9-10) Braden Conrod fought through a tough division to nab gold. In the Juvenile Division (grades 11-12) Makaela Haller, in the 56-kg class, brought home silver, while teammate Kara Pare took gold. On the boys’ side Kerry Normad, in the Juvenile Division (grades 11-12), won silver, despite battling through an injury. “All in all the kids had a great time,” Conrod said. Coming up for the WLWC is the North Central Zone Wrestling Championships Feb. 16 in Prince George. “This is the qualifier

Do your

heart good February 2013 FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART MONTH

‘Heart disease’ describes numerous conditions Stroke

Few people are unaware of heart disease and its potentially devastating effects. But many people may not known that the term “heart disease” is a blanket term used to describe several health problems related to the heart.

Stroke occurs when the blood supply to any part of the brain is interrupted. Potentially deadly, stroke can cause paralysis as well. Trouble speaking, loss of coordination and trouble moving limbs may be indicative of stroke, which is considered a medical emergency that requires immediate medical help. The longer a person goes between the onset of a stroke and seeking treatment often determines the severity of the consequences.

According to the World Health Organization, ischaemic heart disease, which is characterized by a reduced blood supply to the heart, is the leading cause of death across the globe. Though many conditions are characterized as ischaemic heart disease, many others are not, and the WHO notes that other heart conditions, including stroke, are also among the top 10 most deadly diseases in the world. The following is a rundown of some of the more common heart conditions, many of which can be prevented if men and women make the right lifestyle choices.

More information on heart disease is available at www.heart.org.

BODY CONNECTION Are you...

Angina Angina occurs when a person has chest pain or discomfort around their heart because the muscle is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood. Angina can be a byproduct of elevated levels of stress or overexertion and may even be caused by clogged arteries. All cases of angina are not the same. Stable angina is the most common form, and usually follows a pattern that is common among patients. Unstable angina is less predictable, while variant angina, the rarest form of the condition, occurs while a person is at rest. Rest and medicine are at the root of treating angina, which is more easily treated once its cause has been determined. Atherosclerosis Atherosclerosis is characterized by the buildup of fatty materials in the arterial walls. This fatty material can harden over time, restricting blood flow and resulting in calcium deposits. Daily exercise and a healthy diet void of high-fat, highcholesterol foods are two ways to prevent or treat atherosclerosis. Cardiac Arrest Cardiac arrest is a culmination of several heart conditions, including angina and atherosclerosis. Also known as a heart attack, cardiac arrest occurs when blood and oxygen are unable to reach the heart.

Feeling stressed out? Overwhelmed? Have you lost a loved one and are finding it hard to cope? Joe Amaral

Daily exercise is one way men and women can prevent the onset of heart disease Chest discomfort; discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, back, neck or jaw; shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort; and nausea or lightheadedness may all be indicators that a person is going into cardiac arrest. Hypertension Also known as high blood pressure, hypertension is a relatively common heart condition. Nearly every adult has likely received a blood pressure reading at one point in his life. That reading measures the systolic pressure, which is the pressure created when the heart beats, and the diastolic pressure, which is the pressure in the heart when it is at rest. A blood pressure above 120 over 80 is considered high, and that high figure might be caused by salt and water levels in the body and the condition of the body’s kidneys, nervous system and blood vessels, as well as the body’s hormone levels. Treating hypertension is relatively simple, as a doctor will typically recommend some dietary changes and may even prescribe medication for those patients with especially high blood pressure.

Avril Chevigny Fund continues to help children fighting cancer Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer   Avril Chevigny was just six years old when she found herself in the battle of her life. After three months of treatment in her fight against Lymphoma/Leukemia she returned home. At that time Avril and her family started fundraising to help other sick children. With help from the community Avril and her family raised $75,000 which was donated to Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver. Many people in the community will remember back to 1995, one heart-warming community fundraiser in front of a packed Stampeder’s game in Cariboo Memorial Complex arena. Avril, dressed in her favourite colour purple, sat while more than 40 RCMP officers and 20 Pioneer employees had their heads shaved as part of the ongoing fundraising efforts in her honour. As part of the fundraising efforts Pioneer Log Homes built and raffled off a log gazebo and a log play house to help raise the money. After Avril died in the spring of 1996, at just eight years old, the donations kept arriving in her honour, so her family created the Avril Chevigny Fund. In 1997, with generous support from the community through the Avril Chevigny Fund and 139 Children’s Fundraising Society the Avril Chevigny Memorial Playroom was built just outside the emergency room at Cariboo Memorial Hospital. The hospital play room continues to be well used by sick children and their siblings visiting the hospital to-

Thursday, Feb. 14 Gaeil Farrar photo André Chevigny and his son Tevis, 13, accept a donation of $2,600 from Walmart general manager John Donnelly for the Avril Chevigny Fund which helps sick children in Williams Lake and area. day. Quietly over the past 17 years Avril’s dad, André, has been using the fund to help families with children fighting cancer and serious illness in Williams Lake and surrounding area. Since its inception the fund has given 10’s of thousands of dollars to families in need and crisis, Andre says. Donations have been used for necessities such as comfort items for sick children, as well as travel and accommodation to take sick children for treatment in larger medical centres. For many years Avril’s fund also provided the popsicles for sick children and their siblings visiting Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

André meets personally and confidentially with parents in need and can help on the spot. “When we give, we give discretely,” André says. “I know from experience that when a crisis happens with your child, it happens now.” He says from experience, fathers like himself who are experiencing the trauma of caring for and facing the loss of a sick child, are often reluctant to ask for help.  “It’s a pride thing for families, especially the husbands, to ask for help,” André says. “It’s a beautiful thing when I meet with a family one on one, because I understand what they are going through. “It is a blessing for me to be able to sit with the mom and dad and share

my experience; hopefully I can offer something positive. I’ve been there and walked in their shoes. I can sit across from them and they understand that I get it.” André and his brothers, David Chevigny and Bryan Reid, owners of community base businesses, have continued with some low-key fundraising projects over the years and have had some very much appreciated donations from various community groups to help keep Avril’s fund going. André’s 13-year old son, Tevis is also proud of his father’s effort to keep his sister’s fund active. See FUNDRAISING Page A14

Choice for Life benefit gala Saturday The Choice for Life Society of Williams Lake is hosting a benefit gala dinner and dance at Sacred Heart Hall on Saturday, Feb 16. The fundraiser includes door prizes, silent auction and table sponsors, say organizers, society treasurer Gwen Ryder, and co-presidents Ryder and Brucks and Shannon Wedel. The guest speaker for this year’s event is Tia MacDougall from Abbotsford. This fall MacDougall worked with leaders in this area to come up with objectives, plans and solutions

for youth to help them to deal with life’s struggles. The training covered depression and suicide as well as sexual health. MacDougall has been acclaimed by teachers, students and parents as one of the most successful sexual integrity presenters in B.C., organizers say. She has a background primarily in counselling troubled youth and there is much to glean from her presentations of the Empowering Life Series. MacDougall is also a former professional ballerina and a sought after dance instructor, who teaches

various forms of dance including ballroom dancing and swing. So after dinner and her talk she will demonstrate some basic and fun dance steps for participants during the dance. Fundraising at the event this year will be focused towards ongoing training and presentations in the community on sexual health and education/depression and suicide. The society plans to continue with its bus poster advertising offering support for women in crisis pregnancy situations and develop more localized support in the Cari-

boo with a Crisis Pregnancy Centre Home. The society depends on donations of support from local businesses and individuals. The cost of sponsoring a table for the event is $120. Gift certificates or silent auction items would also be appreciated, organizers say. People who may have items to donate or wish to sponsor a table can contact Shannon Wedel at 250398-7939. Tickets are available at United Carpet, the Book Bin, and Sacred Heart School.

Community theatre leader Biddy Jones remembered – Celebration of life Sunday – Williams Lake community theatre director Barbara (Biddy) Jones was born in Kelowna April 15, 1929. She lived a rich and happy life, growing up in the Okanagan with her sister, Diana, her mother Evaleen and father, Reverend Charles Davis. Biddy’s childhood home was lively; filled with a steady flow of friends, animals, and often strangers in need. Biddy loved being a mother and wife, claiming it as her primary role in life and her four unruly kids kept her hopping. Biddy started her married life with Jon Davis and ended it with Dave Jones with whom she spent 30 happy years, most of them in Williams Lake. Biddy opened her heart and home to Dave’s sons, siblings and nephews and was well loved by his entire family.

Biddy Jones Biddy’s other passions, for which many will remember her, included theatre and politics. She directed many productions with the Williams Lake Studio Theatre, often encourag-

ing children and youth to be involved and mentoring them through their first plays. In 2004 she was awarded the Eric Hamber award from Theatre BC in recognition of her lifelong involvement in

Fundraising ideas welcome Continued From Page A12 Walmart and its employees in Williams Lake donated $2,600 to the Avril Chevigny Fund. Walmart manager John Donnelly says half the funds were raised directly by associate employees and the other half was matched by Walmart. It wasn’t the first time Walmart has donated to the fund. A couple of years ago Walmart and its employees also donated $3,200 to the fund. André says both donations came as welcome and much appreciated surprises because he hadn’t told anyone at Walmart about Avril’s fund. “He (Donnelly) surprised me both times,” André says, “The first time was at Christmas 2010. I was away and when I came back there was a cheque waiting for Avril’s Fund.” For his part Donnelly says he found out about the Avril Chevigny Fund through the ongoing in-house fundraising

Walmart associates do on their own to help fellow employees who are caring for sick children. “A lot of people are having tough times and we need to help,” Donnelly says of Walmart’s donation to the Avril Chevigny Fund. “It is our moral obligation.” While fundraising for the Avril Chevigny Fund has been fairly low key in recent years, André would like to become more involved in community fundraising efforts to keep the fund going and invites the community to come to him with their fundraising ideas. “I’ll flip burgers, or volunteer for a donation — whatever,” André says. While is it fun to be working abroad with the large Pioneer family, André explains that it feels very special to give, especially in Avril’s name. “It’s so special that she is so alive in our community, I continually see her presence and it’s a beautiful thing.” While Avril didn’t survive her battle with cancer, André reminds

everyone that some kids do get through it. “I have had the opportunity to meet and help some very special families over the years,” André says. “It’s great to be able to help a family, while honouring them and my daughter at the same time. Every child’s situation and battle is different and you have to remain positive no matter what.”   When monetary help is given from Avril’s fund to a family André explains it’s from the community. “Williams Lake is an amazing place,” André says. “When children or youth are sick its incredible how the community pulls together to help. In this world we have to understand that it isn’t about taking. “It is about giving back. As long as I can keep the fund going I want to offer this resource to families in crisis with their kids.”  Anyone who might have fundraising ideas for the Avril Chevigny Fund or knows of someone who may need help can contact André at 250-392-0868.

community theatre. In 2009 she received a lifetime membership award for her many years of service with the New Democrat party of BC. One of Biddy’s favourite activities was working the phones during an election when she enjoyed the chats as much as the politicking. Biddy was a force in community and home, filled with a sharp, cheerful wit, and ready kindness to animals and strangers. She greeted life with curiosity and joy, offering a hearty hello to those on the street and a meal and a place to sleep for those on the road. She respected all people equally and was an early

advocate for civil rights, women’s rights and the peace movement. She will be sadly missed. She is survived by her sister Di of New Zealand, her son Ian (Jackie), her daughters; Jan (Michael), Kim (Laszlo) and Nicola (Patrice) and her step-sons Paul, Peter (Victoria) and Ted (Betty). She was much beloved and will be greatly missed by her nephews, nieces, thirteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Many thanks to the doctors of Cariboo Memorial Hospital and the fabulous staff of Williams Lake Seniors Village who provided excellent support to Biddy in her last days.

Biddy passed away peacefully with family by her side on Jan. 18, 2013 at the Williams Lake Seniors Village. A service in celebration of Biddy’s life is being held at 1 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, at St. Andrew’s United Church, 100 Huckvale Place, Williams Lake, B.C. All are welcome. • • • • • •

Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune The first show at the Station House Gallery for 2013 can best be described as eclectic. Downstairs is a splash of colour featuring the work of 22 artists from the Interior of British Columbia, from the Kootenays to the Peace River to the Bulkley Valley, in a show titled 2Pro-gress. The bulk of the artists are from the Cariboo. Upstairs it’s all about kids. Station House curator and exhibition coordinator, Beth Holden commissioned the 2Pro-gress show last April, with a call to artists throughout the province. “We got a huge response,” Holden says. The theme of the show, asked artists to examine the concept of progress in light of the recent controversy brought forward by the Enbridge hearings. “We asked the artists to tell us what progress meant to them, and people responded identifying meaningful things happening to them and

The Upper Gallery belongs to the kids. It features the work of 17 young artists be-

tween the ages of fiveand-a-half to 12 years old who participated in last summer’s Station House Gallery art classes taught by Kathryn Steen. More on that story Thursday in the Tribune.
