City of Williams Lake acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall went over the design for road improvements at South Lakeside Drive at the committee of the whole meeting Tuesday. Next staff will prepare a cost assessment for council to approve with hopes the project can go to tender within a few weeks.

South Lakeside Drive upgrade plan introduced Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Council had a chance to see the design for South Lakeside Drive at its committee of the whole meeting Tuesday and learned the cost falls under the estimated $2.5 million. “We think we’ve found ways to save money,” acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall said. There was an issue with some land acquisition that the city has found ways to reduce costs. The amount of storm water infrastructure can be reduced, and the city will not be constructing a barrier along the bike path after an Insurance Corporation of B.C. audit suggested there wasn’t enough room for the barrier. “We’re trying any way we can to keep the budget as low as possible.” There have been some minor

changes in relation to the project. The configuration is the same although from Hodgson Road to the Walmart access there will be an additional lane added. Currently when drivers come through the intersection by the fire hall, the second lane ends at the bus stop. “If you don’t know what you’re doing and you end up in the righthand lane heading south and go through the light you realize you only have about 30 feet to get into the lane, so we get a little race car situation happening,” he said. The merge lane will be extended all the way to the turn off to Walmart in the new design so there will be a through lane along South Lakeside and a turn lane to reduce bottlenecks. “All we’re doing is taking the road prism and sliding it over slightly,” Goodall explained. Geotechnical work revealed there are some problems with the

material presently underneath the road. “They discovered bad soil under the roadway the whole length,” Goodall said. “Normally when you build a road you sub-ex (sub-excavate) and you get rid of all the organics and types of material and build up a pit run base and build the road.” That didn’t happen years and years ago when they built the road so there’s nothing really underneath, he added. The only reason the road has lasted is because down below the bad soil is extremely hard glacial till, the geo-technicians said. Building the road back on top of the bad soil is not a good idea so the road design requires a substantial amount of sub excavating to remove the material before building a proper new road. There’s a substantial cost to doing that extra work and installing the pit-run, but other cost savings

will keep the total within budget. Coun. Geoff Bourdon told Goodall he wants assurance that nothing is being compromised because of budget constraints. “The challenges we’ve dealt with on council have been from that being done in the past on certain projects,” he said. Goodall responded that by the sub-exing everything there won’t be comprimises. “One of the options we did look at was to modify and only do a full sub-ex on the part that is used heavily by trucks. The interesting thing is we’ve had no base failure on the road. There’s lots of thermal cracking but that’s not base failure.” The next step will be to firm up a Class A cost assessment to prepare the project for tender. It should be ready in a couple of weeks, but council needs to have some discussions beforehand, Goodall said.

Indoor Rodeo gets reprieve with help from city Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer After hearing from organizers of the Indoor Rodeo and their offer to cover half the costs of installing and removing dirt from the arena, city council resolved Tuesday it is willing to cover up to half of that cost for the 2013 rodeo taking place April 19-21. Originally council said no to covering the costs, after receiving a report from staff that showed the cost is around $10,000. The cost involves the use of city trucks and fuel to haul the dirt in on Tuesday morning, and haul it away afterwards the following Monday. Acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall said in the

beginning unionized workers volunteered their time to haul the dirt into the rodeo. The city provided the equipment and gasoline to haul it in. The workers received tickets to the rodeo and volunteer dinner. “At the time there was a contractor who took the dirt out so the city had no involvement with that and then over time we started removing the dirt and the city was paying 100 per cent of the bill to take the dirt out,” Goodall explained. Kelly Walls from the Williams Indoor Rodeo Association told council at its committee of the whole meeting Tuesday the association is willing to pay whatever is needed, but is asking

Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo Association’s Kelly Walls. the city to help because they don’t have enough to cover the entire costs. “We have contacted trucking companies that have dump trucks simply to no avail because most of them don’t start insuring themselves until May,” Walls said. “We have one person

who is willing as long as his trucks aren’t working somewhere else to help us out so we’re kind of between a rock and a hard place.” Walls questioned why the city has to pay overtime because the rodeo has the whole day Monday to take down, but Goodall said the city cannot dedicate all the staff to do the job on the Monday. “We have to remove the dirt and then it takes quite a while to clean the arena up.” Coun. Laurie Walters described 2013 as a transition year for the rodeo and the city. “There hasn’t been a lot of notice given to this group to plan and prepare,” she said, adding she would feel more comfortable helping out

with the transition and then knowingly give the association a time frame for next year. She wouldn’t want the city’s unwillingness to help make or break the rodeo. “It’s been in our community for so long and it brings value to our community. I think we have an obligation to help out and work through this transition, with the understanding that things are changing.” Council has to practice austerity and is making some tough budget decisions, she added. Wall said when she talked with other businesses about the cost it was in the ball park of $9,500, but unfortunately they don’t do that type of work until May.

Vandalism to vehicles keeps RCMP busy Williams Lake RCMP responded to approximately 90 calls for service over the weekend, including damage to vehicles for the purpose of robbery. On Monday evening five vehicles parked at the Cariboo Memorial Complex had windows smashed, mostly for the cigarettes and change located inside. Surveillance footage showed a male wearing a baseball hat, dark hoodie, dark pants, and white shoes, walk up to the vehicles, punch out the windows and reach inside. The vehicles were all hit between the hours 8:45 and 10:55 p.m. while the owners were in at a hockey game or working. Shortly after the incident at the complex, a second call was received by police that another three vehicles had been damaged. 

Nothing had been stolen from these vehicles although there was damage caused by the perpetrator breaking the vehicle windows. At approximately 9:26 a.m. on March 9 RCMP attended to a 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck parked on North Mackenzie Avenue that had the passenger window smashed in, but found nothing appeared to have been stolen from the vehicle. That afternoon at 2:26 p.m. police responded to a complaint that two males were in front of a residence on Sixth Avenue yelling at each other.  One of the suspects who departed the area was described as a young native male, wearing a black hoodie with white writing and a ball cap.  Police located a male matching that description walking down the middle of Fourth Avenue near Comer Street.

TRU North Happenings Standing Ovation for TRU Grit Gala!

The TRU North Gala was a huge success. The 2nd annual TRU Grit Gala was a sold out event many are calling the event of the year. Men and women of Williams Lake valeted their cars, showed off their best garments and dined like royalty, all to support scholarships and awards for TRU North Students. The event held both a silent and live auction leaving many guests walking away with exciting purchases. A Canucks weekend, Las Vegas vacation and Sun Peaks ski in, ski out accommodation were a few items up for bidding. Entertainment for the night included AngelKeys Music Studio, Youth Fiddlers and March Hare. Speeches were kept to a minimum... guests danced the night away stopping only for a quick taste of the chocolate fountain. March Hare performed all genres of music from different decades. Guests left the evening already asking about next year’s event. The TRU North Gala is a public event open to everyone. We hope to see everyone out at next year’s Gala.

Distracted driving campaign results in charges Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer February’s Distracted Driving Campaign in the Cariboo resulted in five charges for the use of electronic devices while drivers were behind the wheel, but no phones were confiscated, reports Sgt. Bob Verbree, regional commander of Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services. Phones are confiscated if the police need to verify the owner was on the phone while driving, especially in the case of an accident. “We don’t normally confiscate cell phones unless they are required

for evidence,” he said. The current fine for mobile phone use while driving is $167. Verbree said the number of charges wasn’t very high, but the February weather was a big factor. “Cold wind and snow makes it pretty tough to be standing outside so we’ll have another campaign when the weather is a little bit better.” The RCMP are always paying attention to drivers using electronic devices, either through road checks or a scope — binoculars. When asked if the RCMP will pursue a driver seen using a cell

The RCMP say they will continue to clamp down on those who are tempted to drive and chat in the Cariboo Chilcotin.

phone, Verbree said no because it’s a safety issue. He would like to see the rules stiffened but said with an election coming the government won’t make any changes at this time. “Obviously there’s a huge problem, and it’s particularly bad when traffic is congested. Globally who isn’t guilty of it? It’s a tough thing and you have to make a very conscious decision to put the phone down when you’re driving or ensure you have a handfree device.” At the end of the day, the statistics bare out that it’s incredibly dan-

gerous. “Its like closing your eyes and going down the highway for seven seconds. Who would do that? None of us would. It really comes down to the issue of personal safety.” Aside from electronic device usage charges, police issued 14 charges and three warnings for seat belts. There were also alcohol related charges including four 90-day vehicle suspensions, two three-day suspensions without vehicle impounds, two administrative driving prohibitions without impaired charges, and two 24-hour suspensions.

Woodland Drive water and sewer contact designated Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer When it comes to Woodland Drive water and sewer discussions council’s planning and operations committee will be the contact for the public. Presently residents on Woodland Drive are not hooked up to the city’s water and sewer and over the last few years, the city has applied for grants to cover the $3.5

million cost of the project. Mayor Kerry Cook lives on Woodland Drive and excludes herself from all Woodland Drive discussions because of a perceived conflict of interest. Her absence frustrates at least one Woodland Drive resident, who brought his concerns to Coun. Geoff Bourdon. “They felt they are unrepresented because the mayor is naturally the

figurehead for the city,” Bourdon said. “There was no picking of anyone in particular to be alternate mayor, they wanted an individual to be able to go to.” Bourdon’s suggestion was discussed at Tuesday’s committee of the whole meeting. Coun. Sue Zacharias argued appointing an alternate mayor could set a precedent. Normally council doesn’t appoint an alter-

nate mayor for any other issues. “If the discussion comes up at council the mayor excuses herself and we have an alternate mayor running the meeting,” she said. Zacharias, along with councillors Ivan Bonnell and Surinderpal Rathor are on the planning and operations committee. Acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall suggested the council direct the com-

mittee to do some work to get around the point that the mayor as the figurehead isn’t working on the Woodland project. Rathor acknowledged the project is frustrating, that he’s exhausted asking government for help, and suggested it is too much work for one person. “This isn’t an average issue. I have been approached by a number of residents who have said they don’t think it’s

going to fly because the mayor has a conflict of interest,” Rathor said, adding he also made a point of taking Minister of Sports, and Cultural Development Bill Bennet on a tour of Woodland Drive when he was in Williams Lake last fall. “Every time I can I contact someone in Victoria and tell them, ‘heh, it’s only $3.5 million.’” Bourdon said while

appointing a champion is important for contacting government and having someone for the public to go to, he also said it’s bigger than the committee structure because it is a political issue. Bonnell said the committee has to step up to the plate. “We have to do some work and report back to council because I agree it’s sitting and not moving anywhere at this point of time.”

Tweets go a long way in public participation, Simpson says Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Cariboo North Independent MLA Bob Simpson says a little tweet can go a long way. On Tuesday the provincial government withdrew sections of Bill 8 that would have enabled the conversion of replaceable forest licenses into tree farm licenses. While applauding the move, Simpson said he’s learned a lesson on engaging citizens outside the legislature.

“On Tuesday, the provincial government responded to mounting public concerns by shelving its plans to make ‘sweeping changes’ to B.C. forest policy.” That withdrawal came on the heels of a weekend where Simpson’s constituency office worked extensively with social media to launch opposition against the proposed license conversion. There were 500 tweets using the hash tag — #stopbill8 —  and an online petition garnered

3,651 signatures within about 48 hours, while potentially as many as 3,000 e-mails were sent to the ministers involved, Simpson said. “It’s an intriguing aspect because I started raising this before anybody knew any legislation was coming. Slowly we’ve engaged more and more people. My freedom from a political party system enabled me to work on public policy while the two main parties were ducking scandal after scandal.”

Simpson said Dunkley Lumber and West Fraser Lumber are both operating in his riding and both would like a roll-over of forest licenses. “But when I worked with them through it and looked at the implications, we had a situation where they understood if this was done wrong then they wouldn’t get what they wanted at the end of the day. They agreed reluctantly that as much as they would like the roll over, this was not the way to do it.”

Bill Bourgeois, with Healthy Forests Healthy Communities, welcomed the government’s move because while he believes area-based tenures are a good idea, he said they are also complex. “Seventy-five per cent of B.C. is in volumebased tenures so it’s not a trivial move to convert them to area-based,” Bourgeois said. “You need to have a fair bit of consultation and thought put into how you do that.” The government has

been wise to have more consultation on the topic before introducing any legislation. The delay will allow for a discussion on best how to convert licenses without rushing things through before an election, he said. “Without modifications, the conversions won’t necessarily be positive and I fear if the government moved quickly with the backlash that was being generated, that the next government would probably have to

remove it and there’d be another decade or more before the tool could be introduced or implemented.” Under area based tenures, companies are given an area to operate in and be responsible for, not under volumebased tenures, Bourgeois argued. Volume-based licenses require companies to plan the harvest, harvest, and regenerate to free growing, up above the competition. See OTHERS Page A4

Others needed to invest Continued From Page A3 “All the management after that resides with the government so government is responsible for that while being subject to four-year terms and annual budgets,” Bourgeois said, adding the forests decline as a result. Government should be the regulator, but not the manager of the resource, he suggested. “Government’s not going to have the money to invest in the land base because of the econom-

ics now and in the future so we have to find others to invest in the forest, but no one’s going to invest if they can’t be guaranteed a return.” Simpson called on both the BC Liberals and the BC NDP to commit to a full independent public inquiry of forest policy and the state of BC’s forest resources, to begin immediately after the May election. “The last inquiry into B.C.’s forests and forest policy was in the 1990s, and given all that’s happened with the mountain pine beetle

epidemic, our shrinking timber supply, corporate concentration and control of log supply, and climate change’s threat to our public forests, we need a full public inquiry before considering any forest policy changes.” Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, Steve Thomson said “there is no need for a public inquiry.” “Over the last 12 years, ministry policies have adapted to account for the mountain pine beetle infestation

and climate change. For example, the Future Forest Ecosystem Initiative, Stewardship Action Plan for Climate Change, ongoing assisted migration trials, changing the Chief Forester’s standards for seed use.” Simpson also renewed his call for the establishment of the Chief Forester as an independent officer of the legislative assembly. “We need to stop politicizing our public forest,” he said. “It’s still our biggest renewable asset.”

Fire protection always first concern



t’s great news that we have reached a one-year agreement with the CRD on fire protection for rural residents and that the CRD has agreed to drop the lawsuit against the city. Ensuring that rural residents had fire protection was always council’s first concern. The real challenge moving forward is to reach a longer term agreement that is acceptable to both sides. Council will have an opportunity to share t h e i r From the thoughts openly Mayor’s on this Chair issue at Kerry Cook the next council meeting. 
Congratulations to all of this year’s Business Excellence Award winners and nominees. The highlight for me was the Williams Lake Indian Band and Mount Polley winning Newsmaker of the Year. There was a standing ovation after a short speech written by Chief Ann Louie which I believe highlighted great leadership, passion, and what’s possible when there is respect, vision, and a passion to create opportunities together for the future.

Our Viewpoint

Zellers will be missed Staff at Zellers will be facing their last day on the job in Williams Lake today March 14. While some of them might be hiding sadness or frustration from public view, it’s important before they go to let them know how stellar they have been through what’s been a long and drawn-out process. It was last May we first got wind the store might be closing. At first Hudson Bay Company’s head office said there were no plans for closing Zellers in Williams Lake, but by the end of the year it was announced that’s indeed what was happening. It soon became news that only three Zellers were to remain open in Canada. Anybody visiting the store over the last six weeks has watched the stock and prices dwindle. Aisles moved closer to the centre of the store, revealing a large empty space. The escalators ceased running and people thought “thin” as they walked up and down the only escalator that was open, hoping not to block the person coming toward them in the opposite direction.

It’s difficult to work in a place that’s closing down, and keep dealing with the public. There are regulars who call a store home. Others who rely on a big department store for many things. Yet the staff has persistently been helpful and pleasant. Estimates of jobs affected in the closure run between 60 and 100. Zellers staff cannot talk to the media and HBC said in one interview there were 60 employees and in another the average Zellers has around 100 associates. As I made a final purchase there last weekend and the sales associate said my total was $92, and I’d saved $230, I muttered I felt like a thief. I remain impressed with the graciousness shown to the public by these people and wish them good luck finding new jobs. Nothing but rumours have emerged so far as to what might be occupying the space in the future, but one thing is certain, Zellers as we know it in the lakecity will be missed. As you close the doors tonight that one last time, be assured the closure is not taken lightly. - Monica Lamb-Yorski/Williams Lake Tribune

hen I told my wife in 2004 that I was thinking about running in the next provincial election, she told me I wasn’t thick-skinned enough for politics. She warned me that my integrity was too important to me to play the game and to put up with being stereotyped as a liar, cheat, and thief. Funnily enough, the person who opened the first door I knocked on as a newly-minted NDP candidate told me I had to be a “liar, a cheat, and a thief” for wantMLA ing to be a politiMusings cian. Six Bob Simpson years later, I left the NDP because I wasn’t willing to continue playing the game of party politics. I married a wise woman! Since leaving the political party system, I’ve found there is a wholly different world available to people who want to truly serve their constituents, for people who want to work on creating the kind of public policy that will lead to good government. This is the world of the parliamentarian. It’s a world unencumbered by the petty partisanship that has come to characterize B.C. politics; a world that exists outside of the power struggles that absorb party politicians and their paid political staff. A parliamentarian can use the Legislative Assembly to advance good public policy. They can put forward private members’ bills, and ask real questions in debates on legislation, debates on the budget, and in Question Period. Parliamentarians also get to raise real issues in the press, which are often avoided by the two political parties vying for power— issues like hydraulic fracking, democratic reform, raising income assistance and disability rates, truly addressing climate change, and helping our communities prepare for a dramatically shrinking timber supply. I believe many people seeking political office do so because they want to be “parliamentarians.” Unfortunately, the stranglehold political parties have on our democratic system and individual MLAs turns these people into “politicians” who end up serving the interests of their political masters first and foremost. That’s too bad. For the sake of our children and grandchildren, we could use a lot more parliamentarians in the BC Legislature. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

State of facilities suitable Editor: Now that the high school reconfiguration decision has been made, we want to provide the public with information about the state of the facility that exists for both academic and applied skills areas at Williams Lake Secondary School. 1. Columneetza reportedly has six dual-purpose science rooms that are used as both classrooms and labs. Meanwhile, WLSS has a dedicated lab that at maximum capacity holds four classes at a time. At WL, science teachers teach in their classrooms and move to the lab to do labs. If science classes each use one fourth of the lab space over 20 per cent of one course (20 classes), this allows for 1,600 science labs per semester (100 days); or in other words, 20 science teachers could each use

the lab 20 times per semester for each of their four courses. WLSS’s modern collaborative lab facility has more than enough lab space for all science courses offered at a senior high. In addition, WLSS also has one other lab/classroom space which can be split into two spaces by a retractable wall. Lab space at WLSS is not and has never been an issue. 2. Concern has been expressed that the lunch program will cease to exist now that WLSS is the senior campus. The hot lunch program for students and adjacent elementary schools can successfully run wherever an “adequate” cooking facility exists. WLSS, in partnership with TRU chef training, houses a commercial grade teaching kitchen, which has in

the past functioned as a food venue for WL students. WLSS also has two modern, well appointed home economics labs that are conveniently located next to the teaching kitchen. In this regard, senior students would not only have the opportunity to take food related courses, but would also have the chance to benefit from a “hot lunch program.” Marie Sharpe is located a short distance from WL, and could also benefit from the “hot lunch” program that Nesika has previously experienced. As a result of WL’s commercial kitchen and the close proximity to Marie Sharpe, the lunch program could continue to flourish.

Question of the week


Barb Blewett and Melinda MacKinnon Teachers, WLSS

The Liberal government has just promised $8 million to upgrade the province’s sketchy forest inventory. Eight million a year for ten years when some inventories are 30 years out of date. When that same government committed $16.4 million to party advertising using government funds, it was not over 10 years. It was over a matter of several months, right up until the provincial election.

Is it possible that the recipients of that kind of government generosity are expected to be somewhat kind in the stories that will unfold when the election campaign begins? The MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin, Donna Barnett, should know how woefully inadequate the inventory funding is over that timeline. After all she has chaired the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition. She knows that forest management practices need urgent and immediate help. Same story with some other

items in the Christy Clark “Families First” budget. Thirty two million for new childcare spaces under the “early years strategy.” But again, that is over three years. So it seems that only in government advertising is there any urgency. Other needs can wait for years. The Liberal government continues to demonstrate its serious failures of management.

Make new union rates, wages and perks available to public Editor: Let me start by saying I personally know a lot of the city staff and workers, as well as council members. We have a good bunch of people in all facets of the above mentioned. I’ll add they are by and large good, honest, hard-working people, and will give the rest the benefit of the doubt. However, it seems to me the union just may have been forget-

ting how well they are paid and just how many perks are in their contract already. It would be interesting to get the public’s opinion and reaction if they were brought aware of what the kind and monetary value of these perks are. The Mayor and Council have been given a job for and by the citizens to care for the interest and general wellbeing of all including the union members. I suggest to Williams Lake Mayor and Council you are doing the

job you were entrusted to do, and a great majority of Williams Lake citizens agree with your position. I further suggest, though doubt the union will agree, to have the demands they are asking for published in the Tribune along with rates and wages and perks they already receive. I believe this is allowed as public knowledge so would only help in resolving the issue. Clarence Moore Williams Lake

Gov’t should sue drug companies Editor: The drug companies lobbied the government (before 1920) into making laws that prevented First Nations from using their own medicines (more than 500) and then made billions off that same medicines while the First Nations were thrown in jail for illegal use of their own medicine. The living conditions on many reservations here in Canada are deplorable — worse than some third world countries. As leaders of our country the government should be suing the drug companies to pay for the

damage done to our native population instead of relying on the taxpayers to do it. Now, the number one killer of people in North America is prescription drugs and our governments are still being brainwashed and lobbied into outlawing natural medicines. It was the drug companies’ biggest money maker before they began using chemicals to treat illness. What is wrong with this picture? Randy Bayley Kamloops

The Williams Lake Rustlers Rugby Football Club has received funding from the federal government allowing them to complete some long overdue renovations to its clubhouse facility on Ottoman Drive, said WLRRFC president Rodger Stewart. Early in March, Cariboo-Prince George Member of Parliament Dick Harris announced support for improvements to the clubhouse under the government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund to the tune of $31,338. Stewart said the club will use the funds to improve its clubhouse by increasing floor load, fixing fire separation problems, bringing guard rails up to code, adding a washroom and installing a wheelchair ramp.

Being able to acquire a grant like this is very significant for us.” - Rodger Stewart “It’s something we’ve been facing a while now — being able to bring the clubhouse up to full public assembly standards,” he said. “It’s not completely appropriate to be used in that perspective, especially when we have a few big events a year it kind of gets outside that intent. When we have these big assemblies the building isn’t exactly constructed for that loading.” Two years ago the WLRRFC replaced all the timber under the deck adjacent to the clubhouse with strengthened beams. “But the floor space

of the structure, as originally built for us, was built to residential standards, not public assembly standards,” he said, noting about a year and a half ago the club began looking at ways to go about increasing the floor load. Todd Pritchard, treasurer of the WLRRFC, put together the proposal and following several conversations with government it was deemed an appropriate and worthy project. “We will certainly still have to come up with and implement funding of our own to make this fly, but this is a very sig-

nificant contribution in terms of the cost of the project we’re undertaking, which is somewhere in the $65,000 range,” he said. Stewart said the upgrades will broaden the scope of use for the clubhouse and deck facility, and create an opportunity for the facility to be more broadly available to the community. “This allows us to be able to support more of the sport-based tourism enterprise that comes to our community,” he said. “This year we’ve had inquiries from teams from Wales, England and Scotland to come to our community to play our youth, primarily, and having a facility like that in our community would continue to support and enhance that kind of activity. “Being able to acquire a grant like this is very significant for us.”

The Williams Lake Rowdies were in the Dominican Republic from Feb. 22-24 competing at the international Mexico Travel Link Slo-Pitch Tournament. There, they finished with a four win, one loss record to return home with a silver medal.

Rowdies swing to silver medal in Dominican Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake Rowdies marched away from the Mexico Travel Link Slo-Pitch Tournament, hosted in the Dominican Republic, with a silver medal. The tournament, hosted in Punta Cana, featured eight teams — some international teams and some Canadian teams — including TT Darzo (Punta Cana), Santana (Puerto Plata), Cleats and Cleavage (Quesnel), Happy Campers (Alberta), Yo Soy Un Barcelo (Punta Cana) and Mixed Nuts (Alberta). Rowdies captain Linda Barbondy said this was the seventh international tournament the Rowdies have competed in. “We’ve been to the Dominican three times, we’ve been to Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica and now back to Punta Cana,” she said. “Our team played the best its played at any of them. “Everything went excellent, and the

weather was crazy in the mid-30s the whole time we were there.” The Rowdies began play Feb. 22 with two seeding games, tying TT Darzo 12-12, then thumping Quesnel, 9-1. In their first playoff game they shut out the Happy Campers, 20-0, before playing what Barbondy said was the game of the tournament against Yo Soy Un Barcelo. “They were a really good team, and they won the tournament

last year,” she said. “But this time we beat them 8-7, which gave us a bye to the final.” There, they met TT Darzo again, falling 12-8. “We played good ball,” she said. “In the final game we were ahead half the game. It was tied in the second, then we were ahead in the fourth and fifth, then everything went bad in the sixth inning.” Twelve players suited up for the Rowdies during the tournament,

part of a group of 24 people who made the trip the first week. Week two saw16 total stick around to help keep score and cheer them on.

Thank you for welcoming me into your community with open arms. During my time in Williams Lake I have really enjoyed meeting so many people through various community activities such as the Tour de Cariboo, the KidSport Classic Run and the Boys and Girls Club Street Party. Professionally I have appreciated being able to serve the community by providing eye care at the Cariboo Eye Care Clinic as well as the Seniors Village and in the communities out west. I have truly enjoyed my time in Williams Lake and I leave British Columbia feeling very fortunate to have had such a positive experience. Thank you for all you kindness.

Childhood photos inspire Wells artist Caroline Anders COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A package of childhood photographs inspired Wells artist Caroline Anders to create her most recent collection of paintings, now showing at the Station House Gallery in Williams Lake. Anders grew up in Ontario, near Sudbury, spending the first seven years of her life on a small hobby farm in Chelmsford. “I was always creative,” she said. “I wasn’t creating bodies of work for shows or anything professional, but I was always making things and painting here and there.” That was until she started to delve into oil painting. “I like to paint at the school or in my house studio,” she said, adding her home studio isn’t very big, but does the trick. Her paintings are developed in the first half hour of creating them. The beginning stages are “frantic” she described. After an intense painting session, she returns to add three or four layers. She adds and takes away to develop the images more acutely. “It’s really difficult for me to explain solely what my work is because a lot of it comes from a place I don’t really know about that I’m still discovering. It comes out of me and the images are there.” When asked if it’s quiet while she’s painting, Anders shakes her head and says, “no, it’s pretty manic.” The idea for a painting will begin to brew inside and reach a point where she has no choice but to put it on the canvass. And most often, big strokes and bold colours will tumble out immediately. “Maybe the images aren’t there, but the composition is. I know where things are going to go. I usually start from the top left and work down. It can vary, but the process is probably easier to explain than the actual art,” she suggested. “It’s

The art of Caroline Anders hangs in the Station House Gallery this month. still a big journey to understand why and how it emerges. My work is quite contemporary. Sometimes it’s hard to explain and I don’t get it at the time.” Anders is connected to and intimate with her paintings, she said. “Maybe sometimes I don’t think people are going to see what I see in the details or the tiniest stroke or something pushed.” Standing next to a painting titled Chelmsford during the show’s opening, she said the piece is an exploration of the landscape where she grew up. The theme of the show reflects the feelings she had living on the farm. “It was a good time, but it wasn’t a great time,” she said. “There was loss and family things and even though I was only seven, I realized then there were things I couldn’t talk to anyone about.” Creating the paintings helped though. “Receiving the photographs from my mom was like getting a time capsule. The photographs really inspired me.” Typically she does not paint from photographs. Instead she creates from her mind or what she sees.

“But a few of these paintings I actually painted directly from the photographs in my own way and they turned out the way they did,” she shrugged. The whole collection is meant to be shown together. They relate to a time in her life and how she feels looking back on that time as an adult. “It’s pretty crazy,” she said. Looming large in her memories are numerous hydro poles always present in the forefront and on the horizon, dotting the rocky landscape. “That’s why you can see all those lines throughout the painting,” she said, pointing to the Chelmsford piece. Anders began creating the collection in 2011 during the Toni Onley Artist’s Project, a mentorship program at Island Mountain Arts in Wells. As many as 20 artists and two mentors will paint for eight days, she explained. “I started developing the concept for this body of work, which I was intending on doing prior to that, but I work really well under pressure,” she said. “I was pumping them out really really quickly and the mentors noticed a pattern and were kind enough to select me to

exhibit in a Penticton Art Gallery.” From August until Christmas 2011, she focused on the works, painting steadily, until they were taken to be shown for two months in early 2012. In November 2012 she returned to Ontario for the first time in several years and had the opportunity to visit the farm. “It was pretty emotional, but creating these paintings and then going there was a huge release. I feel kind of finished with it in a way and I feel comfortable with it.” Pausing she said it’s not only about the journey of creating, but it’s about being a person and trying to understand yourself, the world, things and everything around. “I feel lucky I can paint,” she said. “That I can use this as a tool if I want to express my joy, my angst, and my experiences of being alive.” A decade ago, she was wooed to the west by a chamber maid job at a lodge on Bowron Lakes. “I wanted to get out of Ontario, found this area on the internet, stumbled here and never looked back,” she said. The exhibit runs at the Station House Gallery until the end of March.

Art has the power to transform lives: Kelly Perry Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Government cuts to arts programming saddens Kamloops artist Kelly Perry. In her own life she has used art to heal and in her work has seen that art has the power to transform lives. “I’ve worked as a program and outreach worker at a gallery for five years and have seen special needs people empowered by art,” Perry said during the opening of an

exhibit of her works at the Station House Gallery in Williams Lake. She’s mentored people with little or no motor skills, enabling them to create art. In the future she hopes to garner a grant to do some free outreach art work. “It would be great to put together a catalogue of art at the end so the participants could take that away with them to keep permanently,” she said. Perry began painting in 2000 after a bad spot in her life. A 38-

year relationship had ended and she needed something to keep her alive. “I returned to school and took a bachelor of fine arts at Thompson Rivers University. Afterwards I stayed home for a couple of years, but through that time was one of the founders of the artist-run centre in Kamloops.” Perry’s present exhibit consists of 10 small pieces, each one representing her four children and six grandchildren, although a new grandchildren has arrived since the

pieces were created. Larger pieces she’s titled, Hidden Works, tell her life story. “They are about my journey of life, death and rebirth.” The pieces are jam-packed with colourful flowers and plants, inspired by photographs of Perry’s garden. “I’ve juxtaposed them to be me. I’m telling my journey through the plants. Several friends have told me See COLOURS Page A16

Colours from the earth Continued From Page A15 Bold colours and larger paintings symbolize Perry’s courage to go beyond her fear of failure, she said. When she paints, she has to have a connection to the subject of her paintings so she takes tons of photographs to ensure she will have lots of material to work with. “If you were to ask me to draw flowers out of my head I couldn’t do it. I have to take a photo,” she said as she pointed out that each flower and plant in one of her paintings came from a separate photo. To begin she uses acrylic paint as her pencil to outline each plant and flower. “I never have a plan,” she admitted. “I just look and work with it, totally depending on my

Station House upper gallery features the work of Kelly Perry. mood, and letting my mood take control. “That way I can change the colours to suit how I feel.” The collection represents her first solo exhibit out of Kamloops. She created some of the pieces for a show in 2011, while others were only completed in the last few weeks.

“I try to make art all the time. I have a good space for creating art and I love colour,” she said. Perry has lived in Kamloops since 1967. Asked to pick a favourite, she chose Death of a Plant/Death of a Human. “It’s not as bright as some of the others and

it’s the piece that got this whole collection started. When I went through my break-up 13 years ago I was devastated. It was like a death and I had to be reborn,” she recalled. Perry heard about the Station House Gallery from a friend who encouraged her to apply to exhibit in Williams Lake and Perry said she was glad because she loves the upstairs space where her art is being exhibited. Besides, on her trip north to Williams Lake she enjoyed stopping along the way to gather rocks and sand she’ll use in the future when she’s working with kids. “I like to gather pigment from the earth, and mix it with egg yolk to add to paintings,” she explained. Perry’s show runs at the gallery through the rest of March.

Lakecity army cadets host cadets from New Brunswick Irene Berns Special to The Tribune Williams Lake army cadets hosted an interprovincial cadet exchange recently with 32 cadets from New Brunswick. The weekend was jam packed with activities including demonstrations at the Williams Lake Sportsman’s Association, tours of the

museum and RCMP detachment, photo scavenger hunt downtown, swimming, bowling, Eagleview Equestrian Center, and cultural display at the Williams Lake Indian Band. The weekend was a huge success and cadets could not stop talking about their experiences. This all could not have been possible without the many orga-

nizations through the city that helped provide activities, parent volunteers, and the army cadet league sponsoring committee. A special thank-you goes out to RH2 Food Services, True Food Services, School District 27 and Thompson Rivers University for providing excellent food and accommodations.

“They call the Cariboo home” Win Gooding recalls childhood ties to early Stampedes Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune

Win Gooding was born in the old Williams Lake Memorial Hospital and grew up in Williams lake. Her dad, Fred Buchholtz, came from Wisconsin and arrived in Williams Lake by train in 1919. He married her mother, Christine Pinchbeck in 1926, and was one of the first people to organize the Williams Lake Stampede. Win grew up in the family home on Second Avenue where Shoppers Drug Mart is today. Her family had running water but no electricity. “We used coal oil and gas lamps,” Win said during the recent sharing circle talks held at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin to celebrate Heritage Week. “During the war we had to be off the streets by 9 o’clock and black out our windows after the Pearl Harbour attack.” She says her father was trained as a cabinet maker and carpenter, and was a very good gardener. “He supplied us with fruit and vegetables all winter. We made our own sauerkraut. We had no refrigeration, but my dad used to cut big blocks of ice from Williams Lake and store them all summer in an icehouse insulated with sawdust. “It was cold enough to keep our milk fresh. A big treat was to make our own ice-cream.” Win says her dad worked at the early Stampedes and the family would take their

own food there. “When I was six years old I was the flower girl for the Stampede Queen riding on a float in the parade. It was quite exciting,” Win said. Win remembers how things were much more casual when it comes to rules and regulations. She worked in the Bank of Montreal and during one social celebration hosted by the

bank, where she had to help with the refreshments. “We had the liquor stored in the vault and people were dancing around the counters.” Win says people used to go down to the train station to meet the passenger train for something to do. She remembers riding the overnight train to Squamish where you had to get off and

ride a steamship the rest of the way to North Vancouver. “I’m sorry to see the sale of BC Rail. That passenger service brought a lot of visitors to the community.” As a member of the historical society, Win is a strong advocate for preserving the old buildings. “We don’t have many old buildings any more. We lost the Maple Leaf Hotel to fire.

It was once called the Grand Central. The Log Cabin Hotel became the Ranch Hotel, and it burned. The Lakeview Hotel (also to fire) was the last one to go. Gradually we are losing our old landmarks.” Win got all her schooling at Williams Lake Superior School, which was later called Parkside School. “We got a good education in those days. We used the Anglican Hall for a gym and I learned to play badminton there.” Win remembers the old airport where Ninth and Tenth Avenues are today. “It was built in 1928 and they enlarged it a bit so the larger planes could land. They were always having to shoo the cows off the runway. Finally they built the new airport where it is today.”
