Downtown power out Monday

VOL. 83. No. 43

$1.30 inc. TAX


A lightning arrestor shorted out in Williams Lake Monday afternoon, leaving more than 2,100 customers without power, mostly in the downtown area. At around 2 p.m. some observers noticed smoke coming from one of the hydro poles in the alley between First and Second Avenues North. A BC Hydro crew member attended and said the shorted arrestor took out a circuit, which resulted in the power outage. That outage extended from the immediate vicinity, to areas as far away as Walmart and Mountview elementary school. Within an hour power had been restored to most places except for business close to hydro pole, where power was not fully restored until 4:45 p.m.

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Work being done by students enrolled in a heavy equipment operator program near Williams Lake is helping with a future development. “The reality is that this is a training exercise that ties in with our Coyote Rock subdivision development plans,” said Williams Lake Indian Band economic development officer, Kirk Dressler. “What’s taking place is a heavy equipment operator’s program that is sponsored by the British Columbia Aboriginal Mine Training Association, Thomson Rivers University and the WLIB.” Students are helping install the booster system for water, explained WLIB Chief Ann Louie. “We completed the main system and are putting in the booster system now for the development.”

Louie said potentially within 25 to 30 years, there could be 90 residential lots at the development site. “There are 11 large commercial development sites as well,” Louie added. The British Columbia Aboriginal Mine Training Association (BCAMTA) Heavy Equipment Operator (Civil and Mining) Program is intended to give practical experience to aboriginal persons who are seeking employment opportunities in mining or other industries. The program includes a classroom and practical component with elements that include training in construction, equipment operation, traffic control, First Aid, and WHMIS. BCAMTA anticipates there will be multiple intakes at the Coyote Rock site. Presently there are 20 students participating in the second set of

training sessions. “They’ve completed one set and are doing another one,” Louie explained. “The training is geared toward working in mining, but the expertise they achieve in the program gives them the opportunity to get into almost any employment.” Students hail from the 15 bands in the region, including some from areas as far away as Smithers. Recently a student told Louie his lifestyle had been very negative until he entered the program. “He thanked me for bringing BCAMTA to Williams Lake and encouraging the training within our band because it had changed his life style. Even if we make a change in one individual’s life it’s great.” Louie said WLIB has been involved with BCAMTA right from the very beginning.

Len Jackson, director of operations for BCAMTA, said typically there are two full-time instructors through TRU Kamloops, but this time they’ve done something completely different. “There’s an actual contractor on site, IDL Construction, with the building of the roads and the commercial construction. They are providing an on-site supervisor to assist the TRU instructor and to oversee the actual construction of what the WLIB is wanting to have occur on site,” Jackson said. “Normally a mining partner will give BCAMTA an area at a mine and the students will simply move dirt, whereas this time we spoke to the band to see if there was something that we could do for them, and this is what we landed on.” See INITIAL Page A3

RCMP seek iPhone peeping tom Williams Lake RCMP responded to about 50 calls for service during the weekend. May 25 iPhone peeping tom A woman called the RCMP about 7:47 a.m., May 25 because she had noticed an iPhone under her bathroom stall taking pictures or video of her while she was using the women’s restroom at the

Thompson Rivers University campus in Williams Lake. A suspect left the building when the woman kicked the phone out of his hands and left the washroom. The suspect is described as male, approximately five-feet, 10-inches tall to six-feet, one-inch tall; thin, wearing a black nylon shell, hood over his

head, grey shoes with orange/red soles, and clean shaven. There was mud up the suspect’s back from riding a bike. The suspect was seen to grab a Raleigh mountain bike, dark in colour, that was locked at the bike stand and left the scene. No suspect has been identified at this time.  Assault

Council seeks more citizen input on renewed Williams Lake branding process Williams Lake City Council is turning to local residents for more input on the City’s placebrand. Interested citizens are encouraged to share their opinions through an online survey on the Williams Lake Place Brand site – and organizers are hoping to get more participation this time around. The first brand presented featured the tagline “Welcome to the Republic of Life” which was aimed at “thirty-something” people who are looking for a great small town where they can live, work, and raise a family. The concept was meant to be a modern take on the area’s cowboy heritage, and it resonated strongly with the intended audience. However, once it got out into the community it generated a lot of controversy. As a result, Council has decided to go back to the people for more input. Mayor Kerry Cook explains that Williams Lake is competing against many other similar rural cities to attract new residents and new investment. “Attracting more population is important to maintaining and growing existing services and businesses,” she says. “If we’re going to build a sustainable economic future, we absolutely have to find a way to attract young families who will help build entrepreneurial energy and skilled workforce.” Participate in the Williams Lake Place Brand online survey at www.mywilliamslake.

Initial phase begins Continued From Page A1 The work being done at the Coyote Rock Development area as part of the HEO program will form the initial phases of WLIB’s subdivision development, which will be in construction over the next two or more years. More than 10 acres of land fronting the Coyote Rock Golf Course will be devoted to highway commercial development, and there will be a multi-phase golf course residential development adjacent to the existing Lexington subdivision. “It’s a big thing having this development ongoing,” Louie said. “It’s been a big year for us. We got Newsmaker of the Year with the Chamber of Commerce for our work with Mount Polley, and we have since signed another agreement with Taseko Mines.” In January 2012, the

WLIB was one of 18 new entrant First Nations who began opting out of the 34 land-related sections of the Indian Act and assume control over their reserve land and resources. New signatory First Nations will be able to manage their land, resources and environment according to their own land codes, laws and policies. Louie said the WLIB will ratify its agreement with the government in 2014. “We are also working in conjunction with the ministry of transportation on four-laning through our IR#1,” Louie said, adding the highway work will help ease some of the costs of enhancing the WLIB’s residential area development. Louie said the development will also enhance the city of Williams Lake. “The economic devel-

I interviewed a person from the region who is interested in some of the residential lots last week and I know that Kirk and Byron have met with interested investors too,” she added.

Federal gas tax funds most likely to continue Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Cities like Williams Lake are breathing a sigh of relief to know that gas tax funds from the federal government will most likely continue to flow. Presently the city receives $483,000 from the fund annually.

Originally the funding was scheduled to end, but on March 21 the federal government introduced an act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in parliament to include keeping it going. There will also be an increase to the amount of the payments, with index-

ing of two per cent each year. “This is good news for municipalities,” said Mayor Kerry Cook. “This will be the first time the tax is going to be indexed.” She also pointed to new flexibility in the use of the funding as another boon for communities. “It can be used

for recreation and roads,” Cook said. The scope of eligible products has also been broadened to include regional airports, short line rail, disaster mitigation, broad banding conductivity, brown field redevelopment, tourism and culture. In 2013, gas tax funds will be used for part

of the bike trail on the South Lakeside widening project, some will be used for Phase 5 of the River Valley sewer infrastructure, and for the overpass over Mackenzie Avenue, as a few examples. Generally, it can also be used for projects that promote clean air and clean water. Between 2005 and

2011, Williams Lake has received a total of $1,938,462 from gas tax funds. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities noted in it latest newsletter it anticipates the bill will likely become law before parliament rises for summer recess on June 21. “The federal GTF is much more than

another infrastructure program,” FCM noted. “It is a permanent federal transfer that provides predictable, long-term funding for municipalities to build and revitalize public infrastructure - our roads and bridges as well as water, energy, public transit and solid waste management systems.”

CRD solid waste management plan receives provincial assent At its board meeting Friday, May 10, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) endorsed its new 10-year Solid Waste Management Plan. Earlier this year, the province of British Columbia’s Ministry of Environment approved the plan with a few conditions. “It’s exciting that the CRD’s new Solid Waste Management Plan, which was created in collabora-

tion with our residents for our region, has received provincial assent,” stated CRD Chair Al Richmond. “I would like to extend our gratitude to the Advisory Committee and regional residents who participated in the development of this new plan, through committee meetings, open houses, surveys and emails. This is building communities together in its purest

form.” As a condition of the Ministry of Environment’s approval of the CRD’s Solid Waste Management Plan, a Plan Monitoring Advisory Committee will be formed to facilitate ongoing public involvement during implementation of the plan. The plan is designed to achieve improved environmental management

of solid waste transfer and disposal sites, and encourage further diversion of materials from landfills. These actions will conserve resources, create job opportunities and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The approved plan outlines how solid waste, including recyclables, will be handled in the region for the next 10 years. Highlights include:

• recycling access for all CRD residents; • improved operation of nine of the CRD’s refuse sites to improve diversion, achieve greater efficiencies and reduce environmental risks; • organics diversion; • improved wood waste management; and • increased education, including easy access to waste management information.

Phase One of the implementation schedule will start in 2013 and end in 2015. This phase will focus on transfer station improvements and providing recycling access. Subsidized backyard composter sales are also a phase one initiative. The first composter event took place May 1, 2013, in 100 Mile House, Quesnel and Wells. Subsidized sales will return in the spring

of 2014. Phase Two spans 2016 to 2018 and will focus on the establishment of Eco Depots in Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Quesnel as well as a centralized windrow composting pilot project. The final phase three will see the continuation of initiatives which commenced in phase one and two, and completes the 10-year plan in 2022.

NEWS Our stories need to be told: Sellars Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer If telling the truth is brave, that’s a sad statement on today’s society, said Xatśūll Chief Bev Sellars at the St. Joseph’s Mission Residential School reunion held over the long weekend at the Williams Lake Indian Band Pow Wow grounds. Sellars has recently had a book published by Talonbooks, titled Number One, that features stories of herself and other students who attended the residential school. “We need to get this out there. People have swept it under the carpet for too long,” she said. Holding up a copy of the book, with a cover that features a photograph of her two granddaughters, Sellars said if residential schools were still in existence the older one would have already spent four years there. The younger one would have spent two years there. “I also have a grandson who just turned 16 years old at the beginning of May. I think about him, my granddaughters, and the grandchildren of all of us. He would have been leaving the school by now and been well on his way to a life of alcohol and drugs to try and avoid the memories that he would have had from that place,” Sellars said. Thankfully her grandson’s well-adjusted and will go on to lead a productive life, she added. In the book, Sellars writes about Doreen Johnson, who was her protector at the mission. “The first week I was there I was so grateful for Doreen because she was tough. She says now that she was a bully but for me personally I was grateful she was a bully because if anybody wanted to pick on me they had to go through Doreen so they left me alone.” Sellars said she began writing stories before she planned to write a book. “Connecting the dots of what happened there and how it affected me in later life meant I ended up with a big stack of

little stories. I showed them to my husband Bill and he was absolutely stunned at what I had written.” Her husband was in upfront Aboriginal politics for almost 40 years, yet he had no idea what went on, even though both of his parents went to residential school in Alert Bay. “I could understand how he didn’t know because that was the same for me. My grandmother went to the schools,

my mom went to the schools, and I went to the schools,” Sellars explained. “We talked about it amongst ourselves, but I didn’t talk to my kids about it.” It’s the same for a lot of the people who went there, they didn’t talk about it to the younger generation. “When I started writing, it really bothered me. I started thinking we’re all going to die and the younger generation is not going to

be able to understand why there’s so much disfunction in the communities.” As she wrote she was thinking about her family mostly, her brothers and sisters, uncles, grandparents, and parents. “It turned into this book and it probably wouldn’t have happened so quickly if my brother Chuck hadn’t given me some money. I had all these stories and they just rambled on,

but it didn’t read like a book.” With the money from her brother, Sellars hired an editor from Kamloops. “I was going to selfpublish because I was told in order to get it published it would take two to three years if I was lucky. I wasn’t willing to do that so I asked a former university professor of mine to do a short blurb for the back of the book.” When the professor received the manuscript she encouraged Sellars to go through a publisher and put her in touch with Talonbooks. Talonbooks president and CEO Kevin Williams, after reading the manuscript, contacted Sellars in one week and said they would publish the book and were going to make it the lead book for Talonbooks’ spring releases. “In talking to others who read they book they say, that’s me. That’s my story. It doesn’t matter if you’re in Canada or the U.S. and even though this is my personal story, it could be so many of our personal stories.”

City of Williams Lake to clamp down on boulevard parking In order to ensure that vehicles are not illegally parked on city boulevards, the city will focus on enforcement of the 2011 Boulevard Parking Traffic Control Bylaw, which prohibits boulevard parking in residential zones without an approved boulevard parking spot approved by the city. Vehicles parked on city boulevards can impede safe snow removal, obstruct clear

sight lines for motorists and cyclists, and can be a factor in unsightly properties. Residents are reminded that vehicles parked illegally on the boulevard could be subjected to fines and/ or towed. To apply for an approved boulevard parking area, residents must submit a Request For Boulevard Parking form to the general manager of planning and operations.

The parking area must meet all criteria set out in the bylaw: 1. Parking spot must be delineated (must have a clear border) 2. Parking spot must be surfaced either by paving (preferred), crush, or with grindings (available from the city at a low cost) 3. Parking spot must be connected to driveway 4. The homeowner can request a “curb drop,” however, this

cost will be borne by the homeowner 5. Plans for parking spots must be approved by the general manager of planning and oOperations before construction takes place 6. Parking spot must be clearly marked in the winter months for easy identification by snow removal crews 7. All passenger vehicles parked within boulevard parking spots must be licensed and insured

8. No recreational vehicles, trailers, or storage of any kind 9. Vehicle must not exceed size of allotted area both in width and length 10. The deadline for markers is October 31 of any given year to correspond with the beginning of the snow removal season. To request boulevard parking forms or more information, contact the city at 250-3922311.

Sellars hopes contributions become knowledge Continued From Page A4 Sellars is finding solace that people are finding her book helpful. “It took them back to the residential school and all of that, but it also helped them heal. The greatest thing I heard about this book is that one non-Native lady who read it said she was going to give it to her daughter. Her daughter has some so-

cial problems and she said this book can help her daughter.” It’s not just Aboriginal people who go through problems, Sellars said, adding she’s glad it can help non-Aboriginal people too. Proceeds from the sale of Number One will go toward a society Sellars is starting to acknowledge the contributions made by Aboriginal people around the world.

“The general population and a lot of us don’t know about it because it was left out of the history books. That’s my next project. It’s part of the deprogramming. I say that Aboriginal people have to be deprogrammed from the destructive teachings that we were taught.” She hopes Aboriginal contributions will become common knowledge, she added. “I’ve done my duty

and I tell people now it’s time for them to write their stories. There are so many more stories that need to be written. If people don’t want to make their stories public, then throw them in the fire, but get them out.”

It becomes easier, she added. “When I first started talking about it in public I would break down all the time, but it does become easier, I assure you. The world needs to know about our Canadian history.”

A cowboy’s life

B.C. voters opting for anything but


ever Shoot a Stampede Queen, written by Mark Leiren-Young (once a Tribune reporter), is now a play. Last month Mack and Elizabeth Bryson, who were in Kamloops to launch Mack’s book A Cowboy’s Life, went to the play, and later met the author. Elizabeth (nee Stevenson) told him her sister, Jean Spence, had been the Stampede Queen the year Princess Margaret attended the Stampede.   Last week Elizabeth and Jean attended the play in Vancouver. At the beginning of the performance the stage manager asked if anyone had ever been to Williams Lake. A few people respondFrench Connection ed. Then Diana French he asked if  anyone ever lived in Williams Lake, and a few put up their hands. When he asked if anyone had ever been a Stampede Queen, Jean put up her hand.  “It was  quite fun,” Elizabeth reports. Princess Margaret’s visit to the Stampede was one of those “only in Williams Lake” stories. She insisted on riding in the parade in the Stevenson’s historic BX Stagecoach. The only horses available to pull the coach weren’t used to crowds or stage coaches and they bolted and raced down the streets. Fortunately it ended well, and by all accounts the princess enjoyed the ride. British papers headlined the story:  “Princess Has Wild Ride in Canadian Cow Town.” The full story is told in the Stampede display at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin.   Mack Bryson will be here June 3 for book signings at the Museum. The book will be available at the Open Book. A Cowboy’s Life: Memories of a Western Cowboy in an Empire of Grass will be of special interest here.  Mack was raised on several B.C. Interior ranches and in 1956 his family bought the historic Empire Valley Ranch. He writes with humour and this is a good read both as history and entertainment.

Our Viewpoint

Voter turnout dismal again Another election has come and gone, and once again, half of those eligible to vote in this province didn’t bother. That’s just discouraging. So is the fact the B.C. Liberals can win a clear majority in the legislature with less than half the votes, and thus dictate legislation for the next four years unimpeded. Is it any wonder why the other half feel disenfranchised? When the B.C. Conservatives can garner close to 80,000 votes and still have no representation in the legislature, is it any wonder why so many British Columbians feel like they don’t have a voice? Nevertheless, it’s the system that’s currently in place. There was an opportunity to move to a single-transferable vote system in 2009, but voters turned it down — with only 39 per cent in favour in that referendum. Sixty per cent overall approval and 50 per cent ap-

proval in at least 60 per cent of the province’s electoral districts was required to adopt STV, – a system that more fairly reflects the actual number of votes for a candidate and party rather than seats won. However, the support fell far short. Would voter turnout be any more robust if B.C. had adopted an STV system? Impossible to say ... although given this province’s reputation of election apathy, it’s doubtful. If there is a bright note to the May 14 election result, it was those who did choose to exercise their democratic right clearly did so with little regard to the inevitable NDP victory consistently predicted by the polling companies and political pundits. Clearly the majority of those who turned out to the polls were voting for what they thought was right, not what they were told. At least that’s a positive. - Black Press

o who was the real winner in the voter sweepstakes May 14? Anything but. In 1979, 81,282 voters opted for anything but the Socreds or the NDP. Last week that number more than tripled to 262,405. As a share of the popular vote, the percentage choosing “anything but” grew from 5.6 per cent of the popular vote to 16.1 per cent. But it’s not just the province-wide numbers that are telling. As the Liberals showed on election night: “it’s the ridings that count stupid.” Twenty-five of B.C.’s 85 ridings had a turnout of less than 50 per cent and 19 of those were in the Lower Mainland. The award for most apathetic riding: Richmond-Centre at 38.9 per cent. Only seven ridings saw a turnout of over 60 per cent and of those the top three had one thing in common: races that engaged voters. In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, the Green Party won its first ever seat in the legislature; in Delta South, Vicki Huntington was re-elected — the first independent to be so in B.C.’s history; and in Saanich North and the Islands, the NDP may very well have eked out a victory in the province’s tightest three-way race. Of course, there were the Wednesday morning quarterbacks who tried to bend the votes of other parties so far out of shape as to claim that suchand-such a party cost such-and-such a party the election. It may provide comfort to the defeated, but it’s an argument based more on wishful thinking than political acumen. Vote tallies can easily be moved from column-to-column after the fact, voters aren’t so easily moved before the fact. But the message for the NDP in all these numbers is ominous and it’s not just about Adrian Dix. The NDP has been nothing if not short of leaders. In the last nine elections, no less than seven have been put to the electoral test. It may have more to do with the brand. Something isn’t connecting with the voters that the NDP needs in order to win. And that soul-searching is going to be far harder on the party faithful than a leadership race ever will be.

Technology could help response warning Editor: As we look south and consider the disaster at Oklahoma I am again reminded of disasters close to home. In this last year, much of the Wildwood area was evacuated when a truck laden with some sort of explosives tipped over in a ditch. Danger was downplayed, so as not to cause panic. Never-the-less residents were required to evacuate, this follows a prior propane leak evacuation for the same area.  I wrote a prior letter suggesting that a system of warning be in-

stalled in communities along major highways like Highway 97, and possibly in all communities warning devices similar to, as was had during the Second World War. However, with today’s technology, the warning system could be much different. I quote my words from that prior letter: I envision a system with available technology, where, when a local warning device sounded; a specific area could be warned by an integrated short range FM station broadcasting to that specific area. Possibly a unique community

tonal-pitched electronic signal triggered by a 911 operator preceding the broadcast would be a modern version of the Second World War siren. With the things that are happening in the world, for survival, we may need to develop technology for more rapid public response warning. Disaster preparation is not crying wolf. On July 31, 1987 Edmonton suffered a devastating tornado, no one knew, or suspected was coming. Virtually without warning 24 people died and an Oklahoma-

type devastation occurred over an area a kilometre-wide and 40 kilometers long. With changing weather patterns and increasing populations, no area can be considered as exempt. Here in Williams Lake, and we certainly can include Quesnel, 100 Mile House, Clinton and Cache Creek, a major highway runs through our communities. Things that were once carried by rail are now on our highways. Picture if you will, a chlorine, or propane loaded truck having a spill of consequence on Highway 97 above 11th and 12th avenues.

Both of these chemicals are heavier than air, evacuation has to be immediate, with chlorine, deaths can occur faster than people could be warned by volunteers in protective gear banging on doors. With a propane leak, all we need do is recall the explosion of a Vancouver plumber’s acetylene tank in his parked car to visualize a propane leak. Astute community leaders need to be expressing their concerns.   Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Pedal by the Puddle June 9 It’s time to get out riding and training for the sixth annual Pedal by the Puddle mountain biking event, happening Sunday, June 9. Event organizer Ivor McMahen said more than 150 riders from around the province of all abilities will take part in an “enduro” format event, which takes place over six hours on a 10-kilometre loop on Williams Lake’s classic singletrack on South Lakeside. The object of the event is to complete as many laps as you can before the end of the event, but the main purpose of the day is to have some fun riding the trails and to connect with other members of the mountain biking community. “There’s also a category for the hardcore riders, but most people will do it as a relay team of two riders,” McMahen said. “Team members take turns riding so only one member of the team is on the course at any one time, which means you’re not riding all day and have time to relax and socialize. “The course on South Lakeside is some of the best of Williams Lake’s famous singletrack.” For those familiar with the trail network the route includes sections of Rotnee, Twizzler, Cabin Loop, the

Tribune file photo

Chris Masters (left) and Jeremy Stowards go neck and neck through the starting area at last year’s Pedal by the Puddle enduro race in Williams Lake. South Lakeside Ridge, Moose Drops, the old Gun-A-Noot downhill, Guiness and Leppard Spots. Last year overall entries were 165. Also, like past Pedal by the Puddles, kids of all ages will be able to get in on the action in the “Mini-Pedal” — a short, easy event with the emphasis on participation and fun. This year special guest announcer Brett Tippie is returning. Originally from Kamloops Tippie is a freeride mountain biking legend and, more recently, has moved into event announcing having emceed such noted events as the Whistler Crankworx. “His unique and lively style always makes for an entertaining day,” McMahen said. The event is open to

anyone of any age who wants to enter; however, some degree of experience riding mountain bike trails is necessary for you to enjoy the course safely, McMahen added. “Most of the course is rolling singletrack, and it is a loop which finishes where it starts, so there is uphill riding involved,” he said. “There are no jumps, apparatus or drop-offs. However, some sections are somewhat technical and steep.” Directions to the course start are posted on the event website at www.pedalbythepuddle. The course is already marked with race logo signs for anyone interested in taking a test ride. “There’s no rule against walking a difficult section during the

event if you want to play it safe,” he said. McMahen added the enduro format aims to encourage the participation from as wide as possible a range of rider experience and abilities — especially riders who may have never raced before but are looking to challenge themselves in a non-intimidating environment. “Each year we have had more than 20 riders who had never been in any kind of organized cycling event before, and all have a good time,” he said. “The goal for the day is for everyone to have a good ride, challenge themselves, and have fun. It’s a great way to have a fun, social day with lots of fresh air and exercise.” Net proceeds from the race will be donated to local charities, and volunteer positions are available. “An event like this depends on volunteers and we strive to make volunteering an enjoyable experience,” McMahen said. “There are a number of social and fun volunteer jobs available and no experience is required.” To volunteer contact Scott Gordon at 250392-5177 or e-mail Due to the complex timing system involved

Big Bike celebrates 20 years Every seven minutes a Canadian dies from heart disease or stroke. Here in B.C. someone dies from heart disease or stroke every hour. On June 11 you can help join in on 20 years of riding and fundraising as Canada’s only 30-seat Heart and Stroke Foundation Big Bike rolls into the lakecity. “This fun, teambuilding event is a great opportunity to increase employee morale and your organization’s visibility in the community, and all for a good cause,” said Lianna Jansen, area co-ordinator of the Kamloops office of the Heart and Stroke

Foundation. “Events like Big Bike allow the foundation to continue funding world-class heart disease and stroke research, advocacy and health promotion that is improving the lives of all Canadians. We’re helping give Canadians longer, fuller, healthier lives.” In Williams Lake spots are available for teams of either 14 or 29 members between 11 a.m and 7 p.m. The ride starts at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex on Proctor Street and winds its way along a two-kilometre route in downtown Williams Lake.

“The funds raised through the Williams Lake Big Bike ride are used to bring awareness of how important heart health is for a longer, happier life,” said Elaine Balul, Williams Lake co-ordinator for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Last year in Williams Lake teams came together to raise a combined $15,576. Since its community debut in 2000 Williams Lake Big Bike events have raised $211,466. Balul said so far teams registered have set the goal of raising $20,150 locally. Current teams include the Ministry of Forest, The

Beat Goes On, Curvettes, Heartland Toyota, Taseko Mines, Royal Bank of Canada, Johnston Meier Insurance, Scotiabank, CIBC and Lake City Ford; however, Balul encouraged any other businesses or organizations interested to sign up. Teams registered get points for community spirit, along with a chance to win awards for their team themes/ costumes. To register contact Jansen (Kamloops Heart and Stroke Foundation office) at 250372-3938 or Balul (Williams Lake Heart and Stroke Foundation office) at 250-398-4952. Photo submitted

U12 ‘Storm’ Slurpee Cup The Williams Lake U12 Storm boys’ soccer team returned home from the Kamloops Slurpee Cup May 18-20 with a solid result. The Storm opened its tournament Saturday morning with a 3-1 win over Vernon United, followed by a 2-1 setback against the Kamloops Blaze in its second game. On Sunday Williams Lake rebounded with a 6-0 drubbing of the Nelson Rapids, which put them in a tie in the round robin for first place with Kamloops. The head-to-head tiebreaker bumped

Williams Lake into second place, which setup a playoff matchup with the West Kelowna Dyna Might.

But laced up at 1-1 heading into the second half Williams Lake gave up a pair of quick goals to fall 3-1.

Williams Lake’s Jacob Helminger received two most valuable player awards in the tournament.

Glass Slipper Boutique: countdown to grad LeRae Haynes

Tribune Staff Writer With high school graduation only a few weeks away, momentum builds as students and their parents gear up for one of the most significant milestones in life. The Glass Slipper Boutique has racks and shelves of gowns, shoes, tuxes, bags, accessories and makeup, nail and hair professionals so that all grads can look their best on their special day. Lora Fairbrother is the co-ordinator of the program, which is under the umbrella of the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake — located on the upper level of Haines Office World. This is Lora’s second year with Glass Slipper, and she explained that they loan formal wear to young people, will help cover grad fees and help a grad’s date find something to wear. Last year Glass Slipper helped 28 grads enjoy their milestone day. The program is sponsored by Boys and Girls Club, School District #27 and Communities that Care. “At Glass Slipper kids can walk into a boutique just for them, where racks of beautiful gowns are laid out in front of them and they get to choose,” she explained. “We even have retro and ‘alternative’ old-style garments that are very fun, as well as formal wear from the simply elegant to the ornate and spectacular are arranged by colour.” All the items at Glass Slipper come from residents, other organizations and businesses in other areas who heard about what they do and

offer to help. There are gowns, accessories including shoes, bags, jewellery; tuxes and suits and shoes for guys, and hair accessories from flowers to tiaras. With graduation looming, Fairbrother said that what they’re desperately lacking is smaller tuxes, suits, ties, bow ties and suits for boys. “This is a great reason to clean out your guest room closet, your garage, attic or storage area and make a donation that can make grad possible for a young person,” she said. Another way that you can help a grad is through the ‘Sponsor a Grad’ program, according to Fairbrother. “We have a list of kids waiting for someone to come along and help make their day memorable and fun; help with things like tux rentals, shoes, or a salon certificate for hair and nails,” she continued. She added that there is a free salon day on Saturday June 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with hairdressing, nail art and makeup, with “wonderful” volunteers who donate their time and expertise. “Cariboo Cleaners does all the dry cleaning free for the boutique, and we send out a big thank you to the Lioness Club, Lake City Ford and Don Brown and Son Plumbing,” she continued. “We’re in real need of hangers, and would certainly welcome donations of hair, nail and makeup items, fabric, patterns and sewing materials. You can donate all year round at the Boys and Girls Club; we’re also open to other youth events like winter formal or family events,” she noted. “We always invite all the private

It’s a true community celebration.”

Lake of the Trees Bible Camp using rocket science Arlene Jongbloets Special to The Tribune Lake of the Trees Bible Camp, a 35-minute drive north east of 100 Mile House, gets into full swing in early July with all of the outdoor fun and activities one would expect, but it also offers so much more. The Bible camp also provides an opportunity for campers to explore the Bible and ask questions. “It’s not a forced matter,” says camp director Tom McIntosh. “We see many kids come that don’t go to church, and here, they get a chance to explore something they otherwise wouldn’t get a chance to [experience].” The camp is open to children from all backgrounds, and they come from all over British Columbia and Alberta, with the majority from the South Cariboo. Camp life is busy

and Christian-centred, with reference to the Bible lightly interspersed throughout each day. Campers gather daily at the chapel and nightly at the campfire to sing Bible songs and learn more about the scriptures. Another big part of camp life is enjoying meals together in the dining hall. While cooking may not be thought of as rocket science, at Lake of the Trees, it certainly is. Food services manager, Roger Elyea, is a former NASA scientist who worked on rocket re-entry for the first 12 Apollo missions. He is also McIntosh’s father-in-law and Elyea slowly got drawn into the camp kitchen on the merit of the great homecooking he enjoyed doing for his family. “It’s really good food, and food is to camp, like water is to a lake,” says McIntosh.

Water Operations Department At Lake of the Trees, Elyea not only serves delicious meals, such a homemade lasagna and sticky buns, but he is also popular with all of the campers for his interesting background and stories. The camp averages between 50 and 60 campers per session and they are housed in seven cabins. There are also two additional cabins for work crews and four staff cabins. Camp work crews

and teen leaders are volunteers, which helps keep costs affordable for campers. People who donate money for camp sponsorship are also an integral part of the system, as they provide a camping experience for a child who might otherwise not be able to attend, McIntosh explains. “They sponsor kids for camp, so we don’t have to say ‘no’.” McIntosh notes there

Stampede Queen contestants on the fashion runway LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune Ladies Night Out at the Branch 139 Legion welcomed guests to an Italian dinner, live music by Oren Barter, and a fashion show last week. BFF Fashions, Cariboo Spurs and Suzanne’s and Jenny’s provided 50 outfits with accessories, and volun-

teer models showcased a wide range of fashion options to the audience, with legion president Joyce Norberg acting as announcer. Joyce Norberg said that she had a wonderful time at the event, was thrilled with the turnout and that audience consensus indicated that another Ladies Night Out should take place in October. Kyra Stuart, Miss

M.H. King Excavating Ltd, Rachel Abrahamse, Miss Daybreak Rotary and Karina Sukert, Miss Rotary Club Williams Lake joined other local women to model for the fashion show. Kyra was modeling for BFF Fashions on Oliver Street, Rachel modeled for Suzanne’s and Jenny’s in Hodgson Mall and Karina modeled for Cariboo

Spurs on Broadway Avenue. With only month to go, Karina said that the Stampede Queen candidate season has gone by very quickly. “On one hand, I’m really excited for the finale, and on the other I’m not – I love spending time with these ladies,” she said. Rachel said the season has been both very busy and very fun. “We’ve been doing a lot in the community together, and have learned so much,” she stated. “It’s been a lot of fun.” Kyra said the season has been ‘amazing.’ “We came in here three strangers and now we’re best friends. I’ve learned so much. One thing that surprised

me in all this is that I had the will power to speak up in front of big groups of people,” she explained. “I didn’t think that I could ever do it.” Karina said that one thing that has stood out for her in the Stampede Queen candidacy is how much younger children look up to you. “At the indoor rodeo we had all these little girls coming to get our autographs on pieces of paper towel. I felt like a celebrity,” she said. “When you’re just walking down the street with your friends they kind of look at you and say, ‘You’re so tall,’ but when you have that tiara on your head they say, ‘Wow, you shine.’”

The 26Th annual BC ChilDren’s hOsPiTal’s MiraCle WeekenD

BC Children’s Hospital helps kids get care closer to home When 16-year-old Elliott Reid steps in front of the television cameras on the evening of June 1 as a co-host on BC Children’s Hospital’s Miracle Weekend telethon on Global BC, he will be able to speak from experience. The teen, who recently moved from Tumbler Ridge to Dawson Creek, has been a patient at the hospital since he was seven. Elliott was twice airlifted from Tumbler Ridge to BC Children’s Hospital when he suffered heart damage caused by a strep infection. He has had heart surgery at the hospital twice, once spending several days in the hospital’s pediatric Intensive Care Unit with his chest open while doctors monitored him for infection. Following the surgeries he received followup care at a pediatric clinic in Prince George. The clinic, at University Hospital of Northern British Columbia, was equipped with funding from Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital. The clinic receives over 3,500 patient visits annually, saving families who live in and around Prince George the cost and inconvenience of a trip to Vancouver. “I love going to Vancouver now to participate in Miracle Weekend,” Elliott says. “But I know it was always a big hassle for my parents to have to take me all the way to Vancouver when I was sick.” Dr. Maureen O’Donnell, executive director of Child Health BC, says one of Child Health BC’s goals is to relieve families of the burden of travel. “We’re working with caregivers all over BC to ensure children across the province receive care in a consistent manner and, ideally, close to home.” Child Health BC’s activities took off after Overwaitea Food Group became the lead benefactor with a pledge of $20 million in support in 2007. TELUS and Scotiabank later made gifts of $5 million and $1 million, respectively. This support had an immediate impact, says O’Donnell. Clinics established with Child Health BC’s support in Nanaimo, Prince George and Prince Rupert have thousands of patient visits annually; additional travelling clinics are staffed by BC Children’s caregivers in communities across the province; and over 1,000 health professionals have participated in Child Health BC’s workshops. O’Donnell credits the Overwaitea Food Group’s donation with Child Health BC’s growing reach across the province, noting that it’s a perfect fit for an organization with a presence in so many BC communities. Overwaitea Food Group President Darrell Jones agrees. “At the Overwaitea Food Group, we’re committed to the health and wellness of kids and families in BC,” says Jones. “We’ve been proud to support BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades – and with the help of our communities, we’ve contributed millions of dollars toward hospital improvement projects, advocacy programs and important research initiatives. We’re grateful for the amazing support of our local communities, team members, customers and supplier partners who have all played elliott with Global BC host steve Darling

a key role in making this fundraising success possible.” Child Health BC is part of a larger transformation in the way BC’s children receive care, says Larry Gold, president of BC Children’s Hospital and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. The transformation also includes the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. “We want to ensure children have access to a consistent standard of care, whether they live in Smithers, Campbell River or Castlegar; and there will always be children who need care that’s only available in a children’s hospital,” says Gold. BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has raised close to $170 million, including Overwaitea Food Group’s gift and $25 million from Teck Resources Limited, in its $200-million capital campaign to support construction of the new hospital and Child Health BC. Gold says that the new hospital, which will open in 2018, will be family-friendly, making it easier for families from outside the Lower Mainland to remain with their children. Beyond the money being raised for the new hospital and Child Health BC, Gold says the

hospital also counts on donations of about $14 million a year to support research, equipment purchases and training. On June 1 and 2 BC Children’s Hospital Foundation will hold its annual Miracle Weekend celebration on Global BC, to raise the millions the hospital needs to cover its urgent annual needs. “We are building a new hospital, but in the meantime we have to make sure we continue to provide BC’s kids with the very best in care today,” says Gold. “Every year people from across the province make donations in support of the hospital and it makes a huge difference. Elliott Reid is proof of that.” Elliott’s father, Tyler Reid, agrees: “BC Children’s Hospital has done so much for Elliott so we’re happy to help the hospital in any way we can. And it’s certainly more enjoyable to make the trip to Vancouver so that we can help other kids than it was when we were scared for Elliott’s life.”

At the Overwaitea Food Group, we’re very proud of our longstanding commitment to investing in the health of kids and their families. We’re grateful to everyone who supports us in this effort. Our team members, customers and suppliers have all played a key role in our fundraising success over the years. We’ve been supporting BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades, and we’ve raised millions of dollars in support of capital improvement projects, important research initiatives and advocacy programs designed to help keep our kids safe by reducing preventable injuries. In 2007, we made a $20 million pledge to support Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital that helps get kids in BC get the care they need, closer to home. Since then, we’ve raised more than $10.7 million toward our goal, and Child Health BC has been able to put this concept into action in a number of communities throughout BC. We are grateful for the amazing commitment and fund raising efforts driven by OFG team members who encourage the generosity of our customers and suppliers.

Darrell Jones, President OFG
