Daylight savings time begins Remember to turn your clocks ahead an hour before going to bed Saturday night as we spring forward into daylight savings time. ICBC asks drivers to make an effort to adapt to the time change. According to an ICBC survey, 34 per cent of B.C. drivers admit that the time shift does affect them and make them feel less alert after the time change. Studies show that the switch to daylight savings time can have a dramatic effect on disrupting our regular sleep cycle as it puts us out of sync with our circadian rhythm.

Help for Indoor Rodeo to be reconsidered Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer City council will reconsider a request from the Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo for the use of city trucks and operating engineers at its next committee of the whole meeting on Mar. 12, after saying no to the request at an in-camera meeting held Feb. 26. Since 2007, the city has supplied truck and operators to haul dirt into the arena prior to the rodeo, normally held during the third week of April, and in the past four years the city has hauled the dirt away afterwards. The estimated cost to provide the service is $10,000, the city said. The organization requested help in a letter to mayor and council Dec. 4, 2012. “This support helps our organization enormously and greatly helps to cut some of our high costs of putting on an indoor rodeo,” the letter noted, adding the rodeo normally attracts 5,000 plus people attending, competing and volunteering. At the in-camera meeting council received a report from the
city’s director of municipal services Kevin Goldfuss, who said the original agreement was to have contracted volunteers haul the dirt out of the arena, but that the city had to take that over when it became difficult to find contractor volunteers. “The city had to pay city staff to do this work hand the cost to remove it in 2012 was approximately $6,000,” Goldfuss said, adding the total is $10,000 when the hauling in of the dirt is factored in. Staff realized it would have to ask council for permission, he added. Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said while he could not justify spending $10,000 of the city’s money on the indoor rodeo, he felt the item should be reconsidered because he had learned the association is willing to pay for half of the cost. “I request that the report be taken back to a committee of the whole meeting,” Rathor said. Coun. Laurie Walters agreed the request needs more consideration. “I appreciated the report from staff. This information about costs is new to me as a councillor, but I can’t support the recommendation not to support it because of the
value the indoor rodeo brings to the community,” Walters said. “I think there is a way we can work this out and change the direction to enable the city and the association to get together.” Historically it was a volunteer effort, Coun. Sue Zacharias said. “Now there are costs coming into the city. I know corporations in town do work with other events such as the Stampede and will do an in-kind donation of goods or materials.” Businesses used to do the work for the indoor rodeo, but when
work “got slow” and businesses had to leave town to find work elsewhere, the volunteer and corporate support dwindled away, Zacharias suggested. “I’m of the thinking that there are corporations out there that would volunteer material and time if they were asked.” Council, consisting of acting mayor Danica Hughes, councillors Rathor, Walters and Zacharias voted in favour to reconsider the request and invite a delegation from the rodeo association to attend the committee of the whole meeting.
City contract ratified Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer City workers in Williams Lake belonging to the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 882B have ratified a four-year collective agreement. On Monday, Mar. 4, members voted 94 per cent in favour of accepting the offer from the employer.
The union represents about 110 full-time and part-time city workers. On Feb. 16, the workers began a legal strike that continued until Feb. 27. The IUOE Local 882’s business manager Saundra Taylor commented Tuesday that “it’s nice to be done.” The members are very grateful to the community for all the public’s support we received during the strike, she said.
Cataline among fastest improving schools
man missing The search continued into its third day Wednesday for a 60-year-old man last seen in Likely on Thursday, Feb. 28. Gary Price, who lives in a remote area past Yanks Peak, a popular destination for snow mobile enthusiasts north east of Likely, was reported missing by a family member on Mar. 3. The RCMP and Williams Lake Search and Rescue have been searching the Keithley Creek and Yanks Peak area where Price was last believed to be. The search efforts are being joined by an RCMP helicopter. Price is described as five feet seven

Cataline Elementary School in Williams Lake is ranked among the Fraser Institute’s top 20 fastest academically improving elementary schools in the province. Cataline joins 14 public schools and six private schools on the list. Three of the top 10 fastest-improving schools are located in Cranbrook according to the Fraser Institutes latest press release. “What are Cranbrook teachers doing that results in such significant improvement? The results they have achieved should be a beacon for educators across the province,” said Peter Cowley, Fraser Institute director of school performance studies. “This shows the value of the FSAs. Without standard-
ized testing, we wouldn’t know about success stories like Cranbrook.” A total of 46 elementary schools in B.C. showed significant improvement in their academic performance over the past five years, according to the Fraser Institute’s annual school rankings: http://britishcolumbia. compareschoolrankings. org/elementary/SchoolsByRankLocationName. aspx The Report Card on B.C.’s Elementary Schools 2013 rates 853 public and independent elementary schools based on 10 academic indicators using data from the annual Foundation Skills Assessments (FSAs) administered for the B.C. Ministry of Education. “By pinpointing the subject areas in which
individual schools are improving or declining and how their academic performance compares to that of other B.C. schools over the past five years, our report helps educators prioritize learning challenges in their schools,” Cowley said. The report card also includes important information about each school’s make-up, including parents’ average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students. The complete results for all 853 elementary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can compare individual schools with others based on their results over the last five years.
Hit and runs plague Williams Lake and RCMP Hit and runs, an attempted fence burning, and thefts were among the 115 calls for service the Williams Lake RCMP received between Mar. 1 and Mar. 6. A Ford Ranger pickup parked at a business on Mackenzie Avenue South was the victim of a hit and run at 4:38 a.m. on Mar. 2. Police are reviewing video surveillance. About 10:42 a.m. the same morning police responded to a report that two males were running from a fence near a residence on Western Ave. The complainant suspected the two males of attempting to light a yard fence on fire. The suspects were located, determined to be youths, and detained by police for investigation. The youths admitted they had lit a piece of paper on fire, but when the owner of the residence where the fence was located yelled at
them, they ran away. While there was no damage done to the fence, the parents of the youths were contacted. No charges were laid. During a routine check at a residence on Borland Street at 1:43 a.m. Mar. 3 police found an adult male in contravention of his curfew conditions. He was arrested and found to be in possession of bear spray which was seized by police. Charges are pending. Later on Mar. 3 at 4:46 a.m. police responded to a report of a hit and run on Highway 97 North just south of 150 Mile House. A vehicle was transporting a shipment to a local grocery store when a red car, possibly a Chev Cavalier or Pontiac Sunfire, collided with the side of his trailer causing damage to the skirting and also bending the steel rim of one of the trailer tires on the driver’s side.
The suspect vehicle was not positively identified and the damage is under $1,000. At 1:44 p.m. police responded to a report that a vehicle parked at a business on Mackenzie Avenue between Feb. 24

Mountain biking helps fuel local economy Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A mountain bike organization born out of the mountain pine beetle is now launched to blow the mountain bike world away, said Justin Calof, executive director of the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium during a presentation to Williams Lake city council Mar. 5. Snakes and Ladders,
the consortium’s recently completed trail, will be the region’s “signature trail,” he said. “It comprises 22,000 board feet of lumber on the eight kilometre trail, a suspension bridge and a sky berm. It’s uniquely Cariboo, there’s nothing like it. We are going to market this thing like crazy.” The consortium is a regional organization
that worked “carefully” with the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition to established itself in 2009. “We represent the communities of 100 Mile House, Quesnel, Wells and Williams Lake,” Calof said. “We’re a marketing organization and we’re also a capacity-building and mountain bike bureaucracy organization.”
The consortium’s website — ridethecariboo.com — has seen a 207 per cent growth in traffic since 2010, and a billboard erected on the Sea-to-Sky highway in 2012, has helped encourage mountain bikers to explore the Cariboo. “Another piece the city and the consortium worked on was the bike park we built in 2010. It’s the largest bike park

in the Interior. It’s still doing well and we hope to do some more work this spring to make it fresh.” A group of young riders have been pulled in to take over some of the maintenance of the bike park who will also have some control over the design. With the city’s support, the consortium gained significant mileage in grabbing the mountain biking share that is traditionally consolidated on the coast. “It really is part of economic diversification in the Cariboo,” Calof said. “We’ve had mountain biking resources here for a long time but never as sophisticated and co-ordinated as we have now.” As forestry transitions, mountain biking will never take over and replace it as the main economy, but it will support the economy and local business, he said. The mountain bike economy has grown by 11.5 per cent in the Cariboo since 2010. It was $1.9 million then and is now around $2.26 million. “We have a partnership with the province to count the number of users on the seven different trail networks that exist in the region. We’ve
done intercept surveys and stopped riders asking them where they are from, where they are staying and how they heard about us.” Calof requested the city’s help with gaining access to the bottom of Fox Mountain for mountain biking. “We have a couple of agreements with private landowners, but we want to do more,” he said. “We want to have a discussion with the city to prepare a letter we can take to landowners asking to sign landowner agreements to waive liability completely away from the landowner if somethings were to happen to a mountain biker on their property.” Similar agreements are popular in the U.S. The consortium has established its governance and policy, but now needs to start looking at making itself sustainable, he said. “We’re the only organization in the province set up like this. We have an established relationship with CCBAC, but we need to partner with the city to try and solidify that relationship.” Calof compared communities like Fernie, Squamish, and Whistler that have dedicated taxbased funding to sustain mountain biking.
“I don’t know what the perfect solution is, but I think we need to begin to explore it to see if we can put together something to sustain what we’ve built.” It would require between $50,000 to $70,000 annually to sustain the consortium, maintain the market share it presently has, and ensure its growth, he said. The region can’t be everything to everybody, Coun. Laurie Walters said, but suggested mountain biking is something the region has to offer that is worth building on. “I think we’ve demonstrated that by singling out mountain biking as a niche market. A lot of that has to do with the consortium and its driven focus.” Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said the consortium’s work has put Williams Lake on the map nationally and internationally. “I want council to agree in principle to give any help we can that is within our ways and means,” he said in a motion. “I know our budget is tight, but the city, council and community is there if we can help.” His motion was endorsed unanimously by council.
“The band does not presume to tell others who they must partner with in order to graze their cattle, harvest trees or run their businesses within the band’s traditional territory, so the band asks that the same courtesy and consideration be extended to them.” Three open-house meetings were held, including a very well attended meeting at the
Big Lake hall on Nov. 13, 2011. At these meetings the partners took public input on the goals and values of management for the selected areas, and more information was gathered from individuals after those meetings. This input has been incorporated into the application and the forest management plan being prepared for submission to the ministry.
In addition, several meetings were held with representatives of the communities of Big Lake, Horsefly and Miocene to gather input and address their concerns. During those meetings the communities expressed the need to have direct input into the management of the community forest.
Proponents defend community forest application Proponents for a community forest agreement near Williams Lake say opportunities for input from the public into the management of the community forest will remain open after the application is submitted. In a joint press release the City of Williams Lake and the Williams Lake Indian Band said they feel they’ve taken reasonable actions to respond to nearby resi-
dents’ and communities’ concerns and have provided for their future involvement in the management of the proposed community forest areas. A direct invitation to apply for a CFA came to the proponents from Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, an invitation WLIB Chief Anne Louie said her band was pleased to receive.
The forests being proposed in the pending application are the Ne sextsine Sextsine (Flat Rock) and Peskwenkwinem (Potato Mountain) blocks. Louie said both are within the band’s traditional territory and well suited to community forestry, and both blocks are of great spiritual and cultural importance to the band. “The band welcomes
the city (which is also encapsulated within our traditional territory boundaries) as its partner in a CFA within our traditional territory. We see this as a long term relationship that will last for many generations. While we recognize that others may have different opinions, we request that our right to decide with whom we partner be respected,” Louie said.

Al Richmond receives Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal In honour of the contributions he has made to the Cariboo Chilcotin, CRD Chair Al Richmond was presented with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal during a special presentation last week by Quesnel Mayor and CRD Director Mary Sjostrom. “I am honoured, and humbled to be presented with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal,” Richmond said upon receiving the medal. “It is a privilege to serve the residents of Electoral Area G and the regional district; it is a role I take very seriously and am dedicated to making sure the voice of our residents is heard by senior levels of gov-
CRD Al Richmond with Quesnel Mayor and CRD director Mary Sjostrom. ernment.” Sjostrom congratulated Richmond on the prestigious, well-deserved award. “Al is an elected official who represents not only his community and the region, but who also contributes to many aspects of local govern-
ment across the province through his work with the Union of British Columbia Municipalities,” Sjostrom said. “He is also an exceptional community volunteer who devotes his time to a number of causes. I am very proud to be able to present him
with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal on behalf of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.” Richmond was first elected to the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) in 1993. He has served for six consecutive threeyear terms, representing Electoral Area G in the South Cariboo. In 2011 he was re-elected to the CRD board and is currently enjoying his fourth term as the CRD chair. Before becoming chair, he served as the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District Chair from 1999 to January 2009, prior to which he served three years as vice-chair. In 2012, Chair Rich-
mond was elected as the Union of B.C. Municipalities third vice-president during the UBCM convention. He was first elected to the UBCM executive in 2008 as the electoral area representative. In 2011 he was appointed as a member at large to UBCM’s presidents committee as a result of the 2011 local elections which left the position of third vicepresident vacant. During his tenure with UBCM he has served in a number of capacities including: • Chair of the UBCM Healthy Communities Committee • Chair of the Emergency Medical Assistance Education Fund • Chair of the UBCM
CFA proponents plan for a community council Continued From Page A3 The partners responded by committing to create a community council so that people and communities near the community forest could have direct input into the management and administration of the community forest. Representatives asked for one or more seats on the board of directors. The partners were not comfortable agreeing to
this request. The board of directors will be appointed by a legal partnership between the band and city which, in addition to holding the CFA may conduct other business the partners may wish to pursue. In such circumstances, it is standard business practice for partners to appoint people of their choice to the board of directors. The partners did, however, commit to the board of directors meeting with the community council
annually or more often so that the community representatives will have direct access to the board. The neighbouring communities demanded a fixed annual payment in perpetuity. The amount requested was determined by the partners to be economically unviable. However, the partners agreed to make five per cent of the net annual profits available within communities adjacent to the community forest.
The partners further committed to purchase goods and services locally; to put work out for bid so contractors and businesses that reside near to the community forest would have a competitive advantage; and to sell logs to the whole range of milling and manufacturing businesses, from the major licensees in town to the small mills and businesses throughout the local area. Mayor Kerry Cook said the City of Williams Lake
will direct its share of the profits from the community forest to economic development, and promoting arts, culture and recreation; i.e. activities that will benefit residents of neighbouring communities as well as those who reside at Sugarcane and in the city. “With that in mind, we will welcome input from other communities, either via the community council or through other forums.”

TRU gala tremendous
appy Cowboy Heritage Week! As Councillor Hughes said at Tuesday’s council meeting, we are very proud of this city’s and region’s cowboy heritage, and we’re grateful to our ranching community for their contributions. It’s the pioneering spirit that lives on in Williams Lake to this day. And we’re grateful to the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin, local authors and historians, and all those who keep our history and promote our cowboy heritage. I attended the second annual TRU gala Saturday, and had a wonderful time. The gala was started by Brian Garland and the From the T R U Mayor’s G R I T group Chair repreKerry Cook senting business people to grow the university, increase its profile, and raise funds for student bursaries. I am 100 per cent behind this initiative. TRU is a huge asset, and is poised to help drive economic and educational growth even higher. A special thank you to Jay Cheek who headed up this year’s organizing committee. Last year raised $40,000 that supported our students locally. Great news last week from Interior Health: the project to upgrade the Cariboo Memorial Hospital will move forward over the next six months. The master plan includes more than 30 new beds, a new parking lot, and a helipad, among other improvements. This has been highlighted as a priority for the city and the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District, and I am excited to see this plan move forward. More great news: Our MP Dick Harris announced $31,338 from the federal government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund to Williams Lake Rugby Football Club to improve its clubhouse, including accessibility upgrades. We have a strong legacy of competitive rugby players so it is great to see the support for additional capital to our fields. Taseko Mines has submitted additional information in response to questions about its Environmental Impact Statement for the New Prosperity Mine, and the public has until March 15 to comment on it. I encourage everyone with an interest to review the information and to submit your comments to the review panel. I’m happy to see the process continue to unfold, and I look forward to the public hearings. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.
Down for the count? If history does, indeed, repeat itself, the B.C. Liberal government is done — time to stick a fork in ’em. With the provincial election just around the corner, there is very little time for the B.C. Liberals to rebound their most recent misstep — a leaked memo detailing the plan to use government resources to prop up the B.C. Liberals’ popularity with ethnic communities. Not only does the memo describe the misuse of government staff and resources, but its language in the January 2012 draft memo, which was leaked to the Opposition NDP, also makes the “outreach” particularly to the Asian communities as “quick wins” before the May 14 election sound completely disrespectful and hollow. On March 1, soon after the NDP released the memo, Premier Christy Clark accepted the resignation of longtime assistant Kim Haakstad who e-mailed the ethnic vote-getting plan to party and government staff. Then after an emergency cabinet meeting on March 3, Advanced Education and Multiculturalism Minister John Yap resigned from cabinet pending the results of an internal investigation. Premier Clark apologized for the third time in the legislature on March 4, and didn’t rule out resigning herself. We are witnessing the quintes-

sential unravelling of a political party as it heads into an election. We saw the Socreds go down in flames in the early 1990s under a cloud of investigations and misuse of government power. Then the NDP popularity plummeted in the late ‘’90s while Glen Clark held the reins of power. Now, it is very likely the B.C. Liberal government has reached the end of its rope. If the party is annihilated in the election like the previous Socred and NDP governments were, it will mark the end of a made-in-B.C. fairy tale about a political party that was pulled out of the dust by then leader Gordon Wilson and later taken to power by an idealistic Gordon Campbell who promised to change the way British Columbians were governed. It would be unfortunate, indeed, if the NDP wins the 2013 election based solely on the unpopularity of the B.C. Liberal government, and not because of the virtues of its political platforms and the changes it would make. It is unfortunate that good, hard-working MLAs like Donna Barnett will have such an uphill battle in her attempt to regain the opportunity to represent her constituents in Victoria. - Ken Alexander

he Liberal government has been facing uncomfortable questions about leaked internal e-mails outlining their multicultural outreach strategy. This completely inappropriate vote-getting plan would have mixed party and public resources to court different cultural communities across B.C., and it appears to have been co-ordinated by high-level staff in the premier’s inner circle. What’s interesting about the leaked documents is that the e-mail addresses were all private accounts, putting them outside the reach of freedom of information MLA (FOI) Musings requests. Earlier Bob Simpson this week the information and privacy commissioner released a report on the increasing number of FOI requests that come up blank. Requests to the premier’s office resulted in “no responsive records” 45 per cent of the time in 2011/12, up 15 per cent over the previous year. When Christy Clark ran for the Liberal leadership, she made commitments to open government and transparency, but the privacy commissioner says there’s a culture of verbal government in the premier’s office. E-mails are only used to set up phone calls and in-person meetings, and those transitory records are deleted. You may remember there were apparently no records created during the removal of the premier’s chief of staff, Ken Boessenkool; deputy chief of staff Kim Haakstad, who resigned over the most recent scandal, says those records probably did exist, but were deleted. According to another FOI request, apparently no e-mails or letters were ever exchanged between the premier and the finance minister or prime minister about the HST. Right. Our FOI requests also come up dry. When there are documents we’re frequently told there will be stiff fees — sometimes thousands — to cobble together what we’re after. If we pursue one of those large requests, public money starts to move around in a weird cycle — from our office back to Crown corporations and ministries — just so we can get what we need to hold government to account. It’s hardly freedom of information when written records don’t exist and information isn’t free. What happened to the promise of open and transparent government? Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

More Viewpoints Quietly celebrating Cowboy Question of the week Heritage week in B.C. This week B.C. celebrates the first-ever Cowboy Heritage Week proclaimed in acknowledgement of the historical contribution of cowboys, cattlemen/women, ranching/agriculture to our province. A nice gesture, which was pretty much totally eclipsed in the news this week by the goings-on of government (Premier Christy Clark and crew) and election hoop-la. So we quietly celebrated ourselves (as usual) taking pride in our rich heritage, even as we continue to ponder and worry over our futures. The advent of spring brings calving time; a season of new birth and replenishment for livestock herds, as well as new growth for ranch-land which fosters a sense of renewal and quiet pride for cattlemen/women. It also signals a lot more work
Cattle Fodder Liz Twan and the need for more hands-onthe-job. In the past, acquiring extra help wasn’t too difficult — there always seemed to be folks seeking employment who appreciated the lifestyle, didn’t mind the long and inconsistent hours (calves aren’t born only from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or the physical labour in exchange for a reasonable wage (on the lower end of the pay scale) plus room and board (generally). The employer could generally expect familiarity with the calving process, the ability to operate farm
equipment and machinery and a more than a passing knowledge of cattle, horses and the ability to handle them. Not any more. The prospective employee pool has dried drastically — there are hardly any fish in the pond (many seeking them). Those with any skills and knowledge, or with practical experience seem to be as scarce as hen’s teeth. Rural youth (who grew up in the lifestyle) no longer see a future in agricultural positions. Years of seeing their parents work hard and struggle to get by have them opting out of the lifestyle. Technology (satellite television/ Internet) has shown them that there are many other (better-paying) options. A somewhat sad commentary during Cowboy Heritage Week.
Cheung makes solid point about parking; some exercise will do me good Editor: I began reading George Cheung’s contribution (Re: Williams Lake Tribune, Feb. 12, Residents abusing two-hour parking limit) with a smile and ended it with a chuckle. I chuckled because I recognized myself as one of the offenders,
perhaps the biggest one; business name and telephone number nicely displayed on my car to boot. Then I read it again and, at the end, concurred that he had a good and valid point and that hogging a parking spot outside my office all day was a selfish act. So, dear George, from now on-
wards I will park my car in the freebie parking lot, a mere fiveminute walk down the road. Thanks for bringing this up and the bit of exercise each day can only do me good. Bernd Eisele Williams Lake

Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society expresses concerns about New Prosperity Mine proposal: Part 4 Editor: The Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society (CCCS) would like to give its environmental perspective on Taseko Mines’ New Prosperity mine proposal. The 10 concerns are broken down into five parts in order to meet Tribune guidelines for letter length. The following points are brought forward by CCCS director Bill Lloyd, and cover some of our concerns. Part 4

(7.) Tailings Storage Containment Facility The re-located tailings dam raises several concerns. Natural drainage off the south toe of the dam would empty directly into Beece Creek, just upstream from major salmon spawning beds of the Taseko system. Beece Creek is also the most important Bull Trout rearing tributary of the Taseko drainage. Taseko proposes to control seepage contamination by de-
watering wells and containment ponds. Considering this area is a swampy wetland, how will it be possible to prevent some sulphide and heavy metal migration into the immediate drainage? At the end of mine life, Taseko would leave behind a tailings dam 500 or more feet high with a natural spillway into whatever remains of Fish Lake and subsequently the water-filled pit. How would all that contaminated water be confined to the es-
carpment when its natural drainage has historically been directly into the Taseko River system? (8.) Water Treatment There is no mention in the Environmental Impact Study of the need for water treatment as the mine progresses. Historically mines of this type end up with a water surplus as they excavate the aquifer. This water would end up in the Taseko drainage and consequently it must meet environmental standards.
This is an important and costly issue considering the geology of the proposed mine and surrounding area. This oversight must be addressed, as it will have a major impact both environmentally and economically. [References: E. I. S. figures, 2.2.4-5, 184.108.40.206.1, 220.127.116.11.-4, 2.8.2-5, R.g.

Put on your snowshoes and square dance
• In our Gallery • On our Website
Mary Anne Turner Special to The Tribune The Williams Lake Square Dancers seldom let winter get them down. They just put on their snowshoes and dance. Approximately 30 members of the Stampede Whirlaways Square Dance Club gathered at the home of Mike and Marie Gibbons in Springhouse on Sunday, Feb. 24 for an afternoon of camaraderie and square dance fun. After bundling up and donning snowshoes, the square dancers did the Snow Shoe Shuffle as club caller, Nick Turner, challenged them with his calls. There was a lot of laughter as the dancers maneuvered their way over the snow and more than a bit of dismay when Turner asked them to swing! No one ended up in a snow bank, however, and all had a lot of good fun and healthy exercise. Following the snow shoe adventure, the rosy-cheeked dancers were happy to come into the warmth of the

The Gibbons made everyone feel very welcome and Mike Gibbons had even cleaned and heated his garage, so after supper the dancing continued. This time everyone was more

Cariboo Archers AGM and fun day
Ski hill celebrates quarter century Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Adam Piccolo, general manager of Mt. Timothy Ski Area, can remember the early days of the ski hill. “We had a cement bunker with a wood stove sticking out of it,” he said. “That was the day lodge.” Prior to 1987, Mt. Timothy’s first year of operation, the ski hill in 100 Mile House had shut down, and the ski hill in Williams Lake near Bull Mountain had shut down, both due to a lack of snow. “The 100 Mile House group got together and decided they wanted to do a ski hill here [at Mt. Timothy],” Piccolo said. “There were a few others in Williams Lake who were trying at the same time to do a ski hill and they were all kind of putting proposals in and the government said ‘Why don’t you guys work together and build one?’” From there, the Mt. Timothy NonProfit Society was created. Bruce Johnson, one of the current directors, began flagging runs, and logging commenced shortly after. Now, with a laundry list of upgrades, renovations and improvements under its belt, Mt. Timothy Ski Area is preparing to celebrate 25 years of operation this Sunday, with several special events to commemo-
rate the milestone. “It’s going to be a pretty big day for us,” Piccolo said. “It’s pretty exciting, especially since we’ve remained a non-profit society this whole time and continued forward. It’s great to see that we’ve held on for 25 years and hopefully we’ll go another 25.” To start, since it’s the 25th anniversary, lift passes for adults will be $25. In addition, for those up for a challenge, Mt. Timothy will be giving away 2013/14 seasons passes. First, starting with registration at 9 a.m., the staff will be hosting a frozen T-shirt smash. The winner will be awarded a 2013/14 seasons pass. “We’ll be freezing T-shirts into big, frozen balls and the first person to get their frozen T-shirt on gets a seasons pass,” Piccolo said. “It’s $25 to sign up for that, and everyone gets to keep the shirt at the end.” The T-shirt smash takes place on the deck of the day lodge at 2:30 p.m. Next, starting at 10 a.m., there will be a 25-question scavenger hunt taking riders all over the mountain. “It will be 25 questions or obstacles that you need to accomplish and the first person to finish the scavenger hunt wins a seasons pass, as well,” he said.
“There will be stuff all over the entire mountain.” Piccolo said Mt. Timothy staff will also be hiding 25 rubber duckies throughout the ski area, each with a number, corresponding to a prize. Conditions, he added, are the best they’ve been all year. “It’s been snowing up here nonstop for the past week,” he said. “Right now we’re at a 153-centimetre base, and that’s pretty decent for us. The whole mountain is powder right now.” Looking back on some of the improvements and upgrades made to the ski hill over the years, Piccolo credits the work of past general manager Noel Thompson. “I don’t think we’d be where we are if it wasn’t for Noel,” he explained. “I was a liftee when Noel started here and I always tell this story to people. The first thing he said to me was this place was a diamond in the rough and we just needed to polish that diamond.” When Thompson started in 2000 all that existed was a handle tow and a T-bar. “The first thing Noel did was build the extension onto the day lodge, which doubled the size of it,” he said. “And then he started talking about a chair lift, and everyone thought he
was crazy. “One day we showed up for work and he had a chair lift sitting in the parking lot, and that was a huge undertaking.” To Piccolo’s knowledge, Mt. Timothy is the only non-profit society in B.C. to have installed a chair lift. In 2006, Thompson eliminated the user-unfriendly handle tow and installed the first magic carpet for beginners to easily make their way up the slopes. Then, in 2009, he upgraded the T-bar and installed a second magic carpet lift, along with a platter lift. In 2009 Thompson also secured a $1,074,430 grant from the federal/ provincial government’s Community Adjustment Fund, and work began on a new guest services building. “That’s still our final project at the moment,” Piccolo said. “It’s really close to being done. The dry-wall is done, it’s been painted, and it’s just the finishing touches that need to be done. “The new building will be our pro shop and our guest services, and the day lodge will be strictly for food service. “We really hope to have it done for next season. We didn’t want to push too hard and have it not as nice as it should be.”
The Cariboo Archers host their annual general meeting and fun day at the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association clubhouse on Bond Lake Road. Shooting starts at 10 a.m., followed by a free lunch at noon.

Skaters to compete at Super Series Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Four members of the Williams Lake Skating Club will glide to Kelowna this weekend, March 8-10, to compete at the Super Series of skating. More than 50 clubs from throughout the province will be attending, where the top three skaters in B.C. from each division will be crowned. From Williams Lake Dawn Henley, Amanda Lane, Jade Johnson and Alana Walters will skate. And going in, the pressure will be high. Henley is currently ranked first in the province in Senior Bronze Women out of 73 skaters. Lane is ranked fourth in the
province in Pre-Juvenile Women Under 11 out of 42 skaters. Both Lane and Henley were recently recognized as the Cariboo North Central Region (CNCR) regional champions. “It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be a lot of competition, but it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Henley said. “We just hope to do our best and nail everything.” Both Lane and Henley agreed heading into the competition with high rankings means an expectation to skate a clean routine. “It’s definitely more pressure,” Henley said. “But all that pressure really helps with working harder.” Lane said she’s proud of their accom-
plishments so far this season. “I think it’s really good,” she said. “There are lots of girls in my group and it’s quite hard, so I feel pretty proud of myself. It’s going to be scary but I have a lot of friends in my group. Landing everything will be key.” Johnson, heading into the Super Series this weekend ranked 32nd out of 115 skaters, and Walters, ranked 16th out of 101 skaters, both said they plan to work hard and do their best. “I just plan to work hard because the pressure’s on this week,” Johnson said. “You really have to use your time well on the ice.” Walters agreed, adding she hopes to have a
lot of fun. “I’m really expecting to finish middle of the pack or higher based on how my competitions have been going, and hopefully I can improve,” Walters said. “I’m looking forward to going to another competition and having some fun.” WLSC coach Joanne Macnair said the competition will be tough, but added she’s confident everyone will skate well. “You’re getting the best of the best in B.C. here,” she said. “But we love it. We’re going to rock it. Probably aiming to skate a clean solo, which means landing everything — all your spins, jumps — is what we’d love to do. “We’re excited.”
Williams Lake brought up a team of 15 skiers ages five to 11, along with four coaches for the ski meet. “We ended up taking home the trophy for best out of town team earning 116 points in total along with 14 medals in the four events,” said Rob Sutton, youth development co-ordinator and head coach of the Williams Lake Bunny and
Jackrabbit program. In the classic race, Williams lake skiers glided to four gold medals and two silver medals. In the mad dash race the lakecity club picked up three gold medals and two silver medals. In the double cross race Williams Lake won two gold medals and one silver medal. In addition, the WLCCSC had two teams entered in the relay race, earning a fourth-place finish. “It was a lot of fun
for both the skiers and the spectators cheering them on,” Sutton said. “We have been bringing a team to Quesnel from Williams Lake for the past several years.” Sutton added cross country skiing is a great winter sport the entire family can enjoy. Lessons for kids (Jackrabbits) take place up at Bull Mountain Ski Area just north of Williams Lake for kids aged four to 12 between December

Distance education students share workshops Ann Pilszek Special to The Tribune The Intermediate/Junior High Distance Education students have had a busy fall and the winter shaped up to be just as active. Distance education students study at home – elementary grades with the traditional paper, pencil and textbook while junior high grades study online. In addition to their academic studies, activities are organized to cover parts of the physical activity, personal planning/social responsibility and fine arts curriculums. In September, the first activity was geo-caching on the Williams Lake River Valley Trail. The students hiked 10 kilometres to the Fraser River and back and found most of the geo-caches. Some students definitely had excellent eagle eyes and were very successful in finding the caches. The day was beautiful, sunny and warm. Oh, and a big word of thanks to the good citizen who turned in the GPS unit that was accidentally left behind. In October/November, the students participated in horseback riding up at Eagle View Equestrian Centre.

Distant education student shares Eagleview experience Brenda VanWyck Special to The Tribune The Eagle View Equestrian Centre is a place to learn about horses and how to work with them. A couple of months ago, I was able to enjoy the opportunity to visit the people at Eagle View, and have them teach me a couple things about horses. The first thing we got to learn was how to properly groom a horse and prepare it for saddling. They showed me the different brushes and how to use them and what order to use them in. They also taught me how to clean a horse’s hooves; they showed me different parts of the hoof and the different hoof picks and how to get
the horse to lift its leg for you. After the horses were properly groomed they taught me how to saddle the horse, and that was the tricky part. At first I had to have them do it for me, and I watched closely. After a thorough explanation of all the different parts of the saddle and how they all work, I started to get the hang of it. In no time at all I was able to groom and saddle a horse. And that was only the beginning. After our horses were all tacked up, we haltered them and got to lead them around obstacles such as around posts, through cones, over pieces of wood and in a big circle. The next challenge that we were
given was to ride. I haven’t had much experience with horses so it was a very cool experience to be up on top of a horse taller than me. I fell into step quickly with the guidance of the instructor. I learned that horses are very sensitive to slight movements, for example, when I want the horse to turn right I gently pull the right rein away from my body and the horse immediately knows to move in that direction. The horse I worked with was Echo; he is a tall grey horse with a very playful personality. He liked to try to bite my jacket and test my authority. Echo was a very good listener and
followed my instructions. He didn’t do anything that made me feel uncomfortable, and he respected the fact that I was a beginner. After I felt like I was getting used to riding on Echo, the instructors set up obstacles for me to go through. Some of the obstacles were challenging to conquer, because I was nervous to go over them, and I could tell Echo was a little nervous as well. By the end of the session I could manage to go through all the obstacles without a problem. The very last thing we did was learn to trot. See TROTTING Page A16

community Country superstar Terri Clark in WL Canada’s country sweetheart Terri Clark will be performing in Williams Lake March 12 as part of her Canadian tour. With more than four million albums sold and more than a dozen top 10 hits to her credit, Terri Clark has emerged as a singular voice on the country music landscape – driving, passionate, spirited – and every bit her own woman. The Alberta native is an eight-time, fanvoted Canadian Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and multiple Juno winner. She’s the only Canadian female to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. In 2004 Clark joined the cast of the Grand
Terri Clark Ole Opry, tapping into the rich traditions of country music’s most famous stage. He biography states that her distinctive sound is inspired by the hardcore honkytonk of Merle Haggard; the California country-rock of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris; tough-
minded women like Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline; and Canadian stars like Hank Snow to Neil Young. The songs of her latest album Classic span four decades of timeless country music, starting with the tunes young Terri learned via impromptu living-room parties her grandparents often hosted. Clark’s maternal grandparents raised five kids while playing country music in Montreal nightclubs with names like The Kit Kat an The Western Stop. Terri’s grandfather would break out his diddle, her grandmother would start singing; soon it seemed like the entire neighbourhood would join in.
“My grandmother was nicknamed The Canadian Kitty Wells; that’s what they called her around Montreal,” Terry says in her biography. “They couldn’t go to Nashville and take a bigger stab at it -with five kids that just wasn’t going to happen. So I made the pioneer trip to Tennessee.” Songs on Classic include popular oldies such as It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels or I’m Movin’ On and The Singing Ranger. Up and coming country artist Kira Isabella will be joining Terri Clark as the opening artist at each of her Canadian dates. Clark’s tour will be in support of World
Trotting felt like flying Continued From Page A15 And that was something else. Trotting felt like flying, and I couldn’t even imagine going any faster. It was a little bumpy in the beginning but after a while I fell into the rhythm, and we just circled the arena a couple of times. Thank you so much to Eagle View Equestrian Centre for teaching me all about horses and how to work with them; I had such a fun time and I learned so many things that I didn’t know already. Those are memories I won’t forget, so thanks. After the November fall break, the students took part in a day long art workshop with Cyndy Abbott, an art educator from Tatla Lake. A beautiful clock was the result of the determined efforts of all the students who attended. Everyone was very appreciative of Cyndy sharing her time and talent with the group. Before Christmas, a Christmas card making activity at Creative Accents with Tara was well attend by a dozen students. Lovely Christmas
cards were produced – among them were a Christmas tree card and a Snowman card. Tara and her mom kept the group busy and productive. Our thanks to them, too! The intermediate and junior high group of distance education students teamed up with Canim Lake students at the Rural Schools Volleyball tournament in December in Horsefly. Although we didn’t win the tournament, a good time was had by all. To finish off the Christmas season, after the regular PE session with Ms. Frances McCoubrey, the students attended a chocolate-making session
with Mrs. Ann Pilszek. The students also made small Christmas boxes and Christmas tags. As well, they brought their coins and raised over $50 for the food bank. In the New Year, we have already been very active with learning how to tie flies with Mr. Paul Carnes and taking the CORE program with Mrs. Caroline Chupa. In addition, bowling, yoga, skiing, tubing, basketball and a mosaic art activity are planned. Everyone is looking forward to another busy semester – working hard on academics but also on various fun activities.
Vision, and event attendees will have the opportunity to sponsor children at all of the tour dates. Kira Isabella born Sept. 18, 1993 first single Love Me Like That in 2011 and charted on the Canadian Hot 100. In 2011 she released her second single A Real Good Radio and her third single A Little More work in 2012. Clark will be performing at the Gibraltar Room, Tuesday, March 12. Tickets are $45 (cash only) and available at Margetts Meats and Bob’s Shoes, Workwear and Repair.

TRU gala supporters treated to youth fiddle concert LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune The Splash of Colour gala at Thompson Rivers University on Saturday raised approximately $40,000 for local bursaries and scholarships. The event included a silent auction, a beautifully-catered dinner and exceptional live entertainment and a dance. One of the people behind the well-attended event was Brian Garland, long-time supporter of music programs for local young people and member of the business community. He said that the Splash of Colour gala was a wonderful success. “It was fabulous,” he said simply. “The food was perfect, and having the silent auction and the bar located where they were was great. The band, March Hare, packed the dance floor for every song. He also said it was “very inspiring” to see the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddlers on stage, performing songs from their current project, The Fiddling History of Canada. “This group has come so far,” he said. “I think back about 12 years when the Old Time Fiddlers talked about wanting to help get kids involved in fiddling. We got some scholarships to Gavin Lake Fiddle Camp, helped with some instructors, donations and instruments. “Looking back on where they come from and where they are now - it’s onward and upward now.” Dinner music for the gala was provided by Angela Sommer from

“They call the Cariboo home” Rural landscape evolves into lakecity Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune
WILLIE CROSINA Willie Crosina said he grew up at 158 Mile Ranch at Mountain House, and later at 153 Mile Ranch. He spent most of his time on the ranch and only got to come to Williams Lake at Stampede time or when he was sick. He says he was born in Quesnel in 1921 because Dr. Baker was the only doctor in the Cariboo at that time. He says his dad volunteered as a hazer at the early Williams Lake Stampedes to keep the bucking horses in the arena and not in the crowd, because there weren’t any fences for the early rodeos. He says if somebody didn’t show up to ride their steer, he would sometimes get on. He says he got bucked off so hard as a young kid it cured him of wanting to ride rough stock as a grown man. But he says he worked as a bull fighter and rodeo clown for many years. He remembers during the 1930s and 40s how the natives from the Chilcotin

would come from as far away as Anahim Lake with their teams and wagons to go to the stampede. “It would take them two or three weeks to come in. It was quite a sight to see all the tents up on the hill and all the hobbled horses wandering around.” He said if a cowboy wanted to ride a bronc at the early stampedes, he would have to bring his own bronc with him. He says he has been involved in the Williams Lake Stampede since 1947, which was the first stam-
pede after the Second World War. He has been going to the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton for 37 years, and has volunteered at the high school rodeo for 43 years. EARL MELLISH Earl Mellish was born in Williams Lake and grew up on some acreage where Kal Tire is today. In those days that was outside of town. “Every time another kid came along my parents just added another room to the house. We had no phone until I was

12 years old, and my dad made us hockey sticks out of juniper trees.” Earl says his dad had a trucking outfit and hauled everything. “I cut wood, packed water and milked the cow around home. Dad had the feeding contract at the stockyards, and during the sale in the fall my brother and I took a couple weeks off school to feed the cows.” Earl was quite ambitious and he scoured the highway for bottles. By the end of the summer he

saved enough bottles to buy a brand new CCM bicycle. He says the main street of Williams Lake had one sidewalk and the streets were always dusty. He remembers when all the excavating was done with horsedrawn scrapers. In the 1940s everything came by train. The mail, produce, baby chicks and freight of all kinds. His dad had the contract to pick up freight from the train. “One time a shipment of dynamite came in the middle of the night and he
had to unload it right away. Another time a load of baby chicks arrived and nobody came to pick them up, so my dad got all these free baby chicks. We ate a lot of chicken that year.” Earl says he started driving a vehicle at age 14. Then he says the cop told him he needed to get a driver’s license. “So I got one at 15 years old. I never said how old I was.” He says people got by in the old days as best they could. “My dad shoveled out the basement in Mackenzie’s Store which was 40 feet by 60 feet and eight feet deep, to pay off his grocery bill.” Judging by his dissertation at the museum, Earl is a master of the one-liner. He says in 1951 he had to have his appendix taken out. Apparently the doctor happened to be a partner in a potato farm, and Earl cautioned him. “Careful Doc, you’re not peeling a potato.” Finally he states he had wavy hair until he was 28 years old. “Then my hair waved good-bye,” Earl winks as he pats his bald head.

Eleanor (Dodie) Joyce Hama It is with great sadness that the Hama family announces the sudden passing of Eleanor (Dodie) Hama on March 2, 2013 following a battle with cancer. With her family around her at her bedside, she went peacefully to be with the Lord after returning home to Williams Lake following a month stay at the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. Dodie lived in Williams Lake for 38 years working in various capacities and during the last few years spent time working as an educational assistant at Maranatha Christian School. She loved working with children, particularly those with special needs. She will be greatly missed by many friends and colleagues in the community. She is survived by her husband, Patrick Hama, and their three sons Bradley (Lei), Matthew, and Timothy (Justine). Also by her sisters Shirley (Jim) Willems of Williams Lake, Trisha (John) Doerksen of Chilliwack and Jacquie (Gerry) Kornelson of Armstrong. She leaves behind many relatives who have been very special to her. She is predeceased by her son Daniel Seiji and parents, Henry and Kay Voth of Abbotsford. A Memorial Service is planned to celebrate her life. The service will be held Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 2:00 pm in Williams Lake at Cariboo Bethel Church, 833 Western Avenue. Donations may be made in Dodie’s name to the Maranatha Christian School Special Needs Education Program. The family would like to express their utmost gratitude to everyone for the amazing love, prayers and support during this exceedingly difficult time. They would also like to convey their appreciation to the hospital and medical staff at Cariboo Memorial and Royal Inland for their dedicated work and compassion during her time there.
