Stabbings investigated


At 2:55 a.m. Saturday, June 22 police were dispatched to the Cariboo Memorial Hospital where a man said he was stabbed while defending a friend at a pub in Williams Lake. He did not realize he was stabbed and did not see who stabbed him. Police also located another injured male on Second Avenue with a laceration to his collar bone as a result of the same incident. That individual was also transported to CMH. Witnesses indicated that the perpetrator of the stabbing of both individuals was a caucasian male. The incident is currently being investigated.

New Prosperity panel hearings begin July 22 Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

Tribune closed today at lunch

NEWS One killed after crash.

VOL. 83. No. 51

People in favour or opposed to the New Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine project are preparing statements now that the federal panel review hearings are set to begin July 22. On Thursday June 20 CEAA announced that the environmental impact statement (EIS) along with the additional information submitted by Taseko Mines Ltd. contains sufficient information to proceed to the public hearing. “We’re pleased to be going to the public hearings,” said Taseko Mines vice-president of corporate affairs Brian Battison Friday. “It’s appropriate that the people of the Cariboo Chilcotin region have a chance to express their views of the project and the relationship between this project and their future.” Battison said a number of representatives from Taseko will attend all of the hearing sessions. Taseko is expected to be there throughout and will make an opening presentation to the panel on opening day. Tsilhqot’in National Government chair Chief Joe Alphonse said Thursday he wasn’t surprised to hear the panel hearings will begin. The TNG will participate in the hearings, but a lot of members are asking why they have to go through the process again. When the first mine proposal was rejected in 2010 they thought it was over, he said. “We’re peaceful people. We just want to be left alone and enjoy our lifestyle within our areas.” The TNG will put its “best foot forward” and do everything it can, he added. “We’re confident the panel is going to arrive at the same conclusion as ourselves and recommend to government that the mine should not go ahead,” Alphonse said. He does fear this time around the majority Conservative government will try to

push it through. “I think Taseko is counting on that political fact,” Alphonse suggested. If the project is approved Alphonse warned it will put the TNG in a position of choosing to go to court. “To speed that up we’d go to a road block and trigger court action. Then we’re stepping into my arena and that’s the Aboriginal argument. We’ll lock that sucker up for another 20 or 30 years,” Alphonse said of the proposal. There’s no way a project like New Prosperity will move forward without the consent of the First Nations, and that’s the message that should be sent to all industry, Alphonse added. “If you’re going to move into our territory, work with us. We’ve got 12 other exploration companies we’re working with out in the Chilcotin,” Alphonse said. A big concern for Xeni Gwet’in Chief Roger William is the result of a groundwater pumping test done by Taseko in 1994 that showed high rates of water movement in the ground between Fish Lake and the proposed pit. “The panel questioned Taseko on that 1994 drilling and sent them back to deal with that information in the Environmental Impact Statement,” William said. “There’s concern that the lake will flow underground to the proposed pit and that being the case, we really feel from the proposed tailings pond, it would be the same.” Not only will the lake drain, but the tailings pond will drain into the lake, and that’s been a concern for William and the Tsilhqot’in for a long time, he explained. “We are questioning that and think the panel will deal with it during the hearings.” Battison argued Taseko has addressed the issue of the pump test already.

Bylaw dispute adjudication system developed Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A bylaw dispute adjudication system is in the works for the City of Williams Lake. “It will be a process for staff to deal with minor bylaw offences without going into the court system,” acting CAO Geoff Goodall said. The existing system requires that if fines are not paid then the city has to go to court. “It’s a long and very expensive process for the city. Adjudication is a different system the city can use to deal with those fines themselves.” It will mean that every single bylaw

the city applies adjudication to will have to be amended, Goodall added. “We have a lot of bylaws, but adjudication is only applicable to what is classified as low cost fines, only up to a maximum of $500. Once you go beyond $500 you cannot use adjudication.” Acting mayor Ivan Bonnell said council can anticipate dealing with a “whole lot of bylaws,” to which Coun. Laurie Walters said “it’s time.” Council received a report on the proposed timeline in relation to the implementation process for the BylawDispute Adjudication

System at the June 18 meeting, including a rough timeline for implementation of the entire process. Once approval is granted from the Ministry of Justice, hopefully in September 2013, the city will prepare a draft offence notice enforcement bylaw, review it in October, create new violation tickets in November, train enforcement officers in December, and begin implementing the new process in January 2014. Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said he’s happy with the proposal because sometimes it costs the city “dollars to collect dimes.”

“As our court system has been as busy at it is, you don’t get to deal with the issue for a long time. So it’s better to have this system. It will be more efficient if the courts don’t have to deal with these minor issues,” Rathor said. “This process will also allow the city to forward all unpaid tickets to a collection agency for follow-up and does not require a court order or personal service which saves both money and court and employee time, as well as it is hoped will improve compliance as offenders will now be held accountable for unpaid fines,” the city noted in a press release.

Cariboo Connector Program: Highway 97 Improvements

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the City of Williams Lake invite the public to attend an Open House to preview preliminary plans for the four-laning of approximately 1.5 kilometres of Highway 97, 100 metres south of Carson Drive to 500 metres south of Fox Mountain Road. There will be an opportunity for the public to review the plans and provide input on this project. Ministry and municipal staff will be on-hand to provide information and answer questions. This project is one of nine improvement projects associated with the Phase 2 Cariboo Connector Program announced April 13, 2012. The drop-in open house is scheduled for the following date and time:

Wednesday June 26, 2013 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Williams Lake City Hall 450 Mart Street Williams Lake, B.C. For more information, please contact Lisa Miller, Project Manager, by telephone at 250 371-3985 or by e-mail at

Torrential rain and hail storm causes flash flooding Saturday Monica Lamb-Yorski and Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writers Saturday afternoon’s torrential lightning, rain and hail storm left its mark on multiple locations throughout the city. Traffic flow along both Mackenzie Avenue and Oliver Street was a mess due to flooding caused by the intense hail and rain. Downed power lines also created brief power outages in some parts of the city. On Twelfth Avenue North, a massive ice buildup at the bottom of the hill from the hail blocked traffic. On Monday morning, several businesses were still cleaning up. At Tasco on Mackenzie Avenue North a sign indicated “Flood sale 20 per cent off.” Owner Rick Weil said the alley behind was a lake. “The water was up to my thighs, “ Weil said Monday, adding there were four inches of water flooded into the store. Next door Cariboo Steel and Machining Ltd. was also flooded. “It bent the steel door at the back on the alley

A massive water and ice buildup at the bottom of the hill of Twelfth Avenue North caused some flooding and water damage to several properties in the neighbourhood. side of our building,” said owner Jason Rowley. The water buildup in the alley measured to his shorts, but once he went outside and dug the “crap” clogging the manhole, the water started swirling like it was going down the toilet and was gone in a couple of minutes. Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist confirmed the amount of rain in Williams Lake and the surrounding area during the last three months has been higher than normal. According to the

weather station at the airport, the norm for April is 22 millimetres of rain — April 2013 37 mm fell. The norm for May is 39 mm — 89 mm fell in 2013. In June the norm is 56 mm and by June 24, 80 mm of rain fell. Lundquist did not have measurements for Saturday’s rain fall, but said Environment Canada received a call from a severe weather watcher who measured 15 mm of rain in 15 minutes at Chimney Lake. “That is an incredible high rain rate which would totally explain what you guys saw in

Fish Lake will be preserved: Battison Continued From Page A1 “The main focus of interest by a number of parties is the relationship between Fish Lake and the mining facilities that will be built,” he said. “Taseko’s plan preserves and protects the lake and people are asking how the company is going to do that? What mitigation measures

will be used to ensure the lake is protected.” Battison said a main focus of the Environmental Impact Statement is the relationship between the pit and the lake, and the relationship between the tailings facility and the lake. “How does the water move and in what volumes between the lake, pit and tailings pond. That’s the main thing

that’s changed from the first proposal.” William said the Tsilhqot’in Nation remains unified in its opposition to the project. “We are a First Nations people protecting a watershed and a way of life. I would say to Canada watch out. You have a company and a government that might approve a project on the promise of jobs in an area that is so

beautiful and the First People of the land still utilize it. What about your backyard Canada? What could happen here could happen in your backyard?” William said. Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce president Jason Ryll welcomed the announcement that the panel hearings going ahead. “We’re registered as

an interested party and are optimistic now that the process is moving forward,” Ryll said. “It’s important to hear all sides of the presentations and we look forward to presenting ours.” For the last few months, the delay has caused uncertainty, he added. “I know that the federal review panel has been asking for

more information from Taseko, information that they already seem to have on hand, so it’s that kind of uncertainty we can try and put behind us now.” Ryll is hopeful the panel will listen to all the interested parties and provide opportunity for people to present as much as possible. Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett echoed Ryll saying she’s

pleased the panel hearings are “finally” going to take place. “People will be able to listen to the proposal presentation, ask questions and have their concerns heard,” she said, adding once a decision will be made the region can move on. “We have to realize that we have to let the scientific evidence influence the decision,” Barnett said.

Slide empties into river valley Saturday Monica Lamb-Yorski Special to The Tribune A large tension crack along the top of the River Valley in Williams Lake that was first discovered Thursday gave way Saturday after a torrential hail and rain storm. On Friday, the city’s acting chief administrative officer said a big tension crack had opened and was getting bigger. The crack ran about 100 metres from the outfall line at the landfill over to the back end of the abandoned Jack Pine Forest Products Ltd. site on Frizzi Road. “It’s because of the super wet conditions we’ve had and runoff generated from that across the back of that abandoned site,” Goodall said. City staff first noticed

a small slide went into the gully at the bottom of the river valley. After trying to determine what had happened, they decided to look up top at the Jack Pine site and that’s when they discovered the tension crack. The property is vacant and presently being managed by receivership so no one has been physically maintaining it. “If in reality the runoff had been controlled from the back of the lot, this likely would never have happened,” Goodall said of the tension crack. Rain falling out of the sky is not so bad, what’s bad is when water falls onto a site, runs and congregates together, and then goes over the bank, he added. On Thursday a temporary road was built

so crews could move a hydro pole back because it carries the high voltage hydro used to operate the sewer lagoon system below. “We don’t want to lose it so as a precautionary measure we moved a generator down there so we can run the entire system from the generator, and then we’ll move the hydro pole back in place,” Goodall said. The city will also assess if there is any other way to get power down there, he added. Relieved the sun was shining again Friday, Goodall said that “no rain” was a good thing. “The geotechnical engineer indicated to us he felt if we could keep the water out of the tension crack that piece might not fall off.” On Friday an engineer was at the site

determining whether a diversion could be installed at the Jack Pine property to ensure if there was more rain that the water did not build

In April 2012 there was a slide nearby that destroyed a large section of the treatment water outfall and a storm outfall pipe.

With him is grad Shelby Doerkson (left), Lorne Doerkson of Cariboo GM, and Dry Grad representative Fred Ball.

Dry Grad gets boost in funding Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer When it comes to participating in the BC Liquor Store campaign to support dry grad, Williams Lake customers are among the top donors. In the 2013 campaign, the BC Liquor Store in Williams Lake collected $9,520, proving that $1 can go a long way. That amount was surpassed only by BC Liquor Stores located at Kelowna’s Orchard Park, in Vancouver at 39th and Cambie Street, and at Coquitlam’s Westwood Centre. Province-wide donations totalled $495,000. Another feather in the Williams Lake store’s cap is the fact that two employees — Tanja Spaans and Denise Hoem —  were in the top three for cashier-encouraged transactions to support dry grad. “Tanja was first in the province,” said store manager Dan Davis. “The Liquor Board hands out its own little prizes for this sort of thing.” Pegging Williams Lake as always being supportive, Davis also credited his assistant manager Carrie Christianson who has been on the dry grad committee for about five or six years. “The committee won’t let her leave,” he joked. “So she pushes really hard and gets the staff pumped up for it.” Support Dry Grad is

an annual community fundraising campaign held in 195 BC Liquor Stores throughout British Columbia. Since 2001 the campaign has raised more than $4.9 million. “I’m impressed by the ongoing generosity shown by British Columbians for the Support Dry Grad Campaign.

“The Province strongly supports dry grad activities as a way for students to celebrate safely on a night when risk is high,” said BC Liquor Distribution Branch general manager and CEO Blain Lawson. Fifty-five school districts and the Federation of Independent Schools participated in

this year’s campaign. All of the contributions made to each store are sent to their local school district. The school districts in turn distribute the funds to the volunteer grad committees, which also fundraise. The money collected is used to pay for alcohol-free graduation events and activities

such as dances, camping and bus trips to theme parks.

B.C. a long way from Ottawa

Gearing up for Stampede



anada Day is coming up. How do most Canadians feel about it. Just another holiday? In 1990 Prime Minister Mulroney set up the Spicer Commission, a country wide, federal government forum intended to get citizens’  ideas for national unity.  At the time Quebec was threatening to leave Canada and the PM wanted to get opinions on how to hold the country together. He got an earful. Some of the recommendations w e n t into the French CharConnection lotteDiana French t o w n Accord which was intended to renew the Canadian Constitution. The Accord was rejected in a national referendum. B.C. was one of the rejectors. One of the recommended constitutional renewals was to have an elected senate. I wonder how a referendum on that issue would fare today in light of the scandals. Oh well. I was responsible for the Cariboo/Chilcotin part of the Spicer forum. Participants were asked, among other things, did they think of themselves first as Canadians, British Columbians,  or what?  Almost  all the people I worked with (several hundred) said they were Canadian first. I’ve been thinking about Canada versus British Columbians lately as we seem to be at odds on a few issues. For instance the Northern Gateway (Enbridge) pipeline is said to be good for the nation, but it isn’t so wonderful for this   province. As Premier Clark has pointed out, B.C. takes all the risks. I am a proud Canadian, but sometimes B.C. seems to be a long, long way from Ottawa. With all its faults, we have one of the best, if not the best country to live in, so let’s be proud and thankful for that and fly the flag high on Monday. *** Question. Is there any other event that brings as many people to the city as the Stampede? If so, what might it be?  Putting the entertainment value aside, has anyone ever figured out how many dollars it brings in to the community? Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune.

Our Viewpoint

Sex assault should lead to parental discretion Back in the olden days, as they say, a voice would take control of television sets at precisely 10 p.m. and ask viewers: “Do you know where your children are?” That question is more relevant than ever following news of a disturbing crime that occurred at a weekend bush party in Kamloops. According to Kamloops Mounties, more than 1,000 youths converged at a popular party spot in Barnhartvale, where a 17-year-old girl was sexually assaulted. It’s a horrific crime and the person who committed it should face the harshest sentence available in our justice system. The fact a teenager’s life has been irrevocably altered should serve as a reminder to all — parents in particular — that predators know where and when to act.

A bush party in the middle of nowhere, featuring a thousand kids and booze and drugs? We cannot think of a more dangerous place for young people to be. Last year, a similar massive outdoor party in the Barnhartvale area resulted in a vehicle hitting a girl, sending her to hospital with a broken pelvis. Another girl had a liquor bottle smashed over her head. And, believe it or not, parents were actually driving their kids to these parties. Nothing good can come of a thousand kids in the woods with booze and drugs. Nothing. This tragic crime on the weekend, and last year’s mayhem, should be more than enough to have every Kamloops parent tighten that leash on their teens, regardless of whether “everybody else is doing it.” - Kamloops This Week

ith Stampede weekend coming up, I want to personally thank the many volunteers and businesses that have worked so hard to ensure the event will be a great success. The Williams Lake Stampede combines the fun of a festival with the excitement of sport, and is an event everyone enjoys. I have fond memories of travelling throughout the province attending rodeos with my family and I am very proud that the pinnacle of rodeo success is celebrated right here in the Cariboo. Not only is this a wonderful c o m munity event, MLA it also Musings brings g re at Coralee Oakes economic benefits to our region. The Stampede attracts many tourists to our region, but there are many other exciting destinations as well. This past week I attended Barkerville’s AGM, and Barkerville is definitely a wonderful place to visit. If you have friends or family visiting this summer, Barkerville is a great choice! It was a busy week this week, with a lot of meetings and events to attend. I met with the CRD and discussed projects such as the Quesnel Multi-Centre, Mount view water and sewer, Gateway Water, Esler Sports Complex, Anahim Lake Airport obstacle tree removal, and a major swimming pool upgrade and renovation. I also met with some of the organizers of the 2015 Canada Winter Games to be held in Prince George, which will be the largest event ever held in the North with more than 15,000 visitors. I was sworn in as MLA on June 11, and now that it’s official, it’s time to begin the task of setting up offices, ordering phones, training staff, and everything else we need to do to set up shop. I’ve already had the chance to meet with several constituents to try to support them and resolve the challenges they are facing, and I look forward to continuing to do so. With the House called back for a summer session beginning this week, I will be spending a lot of time in Victoria but will be home on weekends and am available for appointments.

More Viewpoints Bees vastly different to keep than chickens Editor: Before coming to Williams Lake in 1958, my father and I already had started a chicken ranch in 1945 in Chilliwack B.C. with 500 chickens, two-and-a-half acres of strawberries and two-and-a-half acres of raspberries.

The flood of 1948 drowned out all the berries. We now concentrated on chickens for egg production. We also raised fertile eggs for the Rump and Sandal Hatchery for baby chicks to be sold all over the province. By this time we had 7,000 chick-

ens. One rooster for 50 hens. We also were the sole supplier of eggs for every Overwaitea store in the province. Plus, we supplied eggs from Vancouver to the Territories and we were an egg wholesaler: Peter O. Epp & Sons. By this time we had

15,000 chicks and the total egg production was for household use. Chickens are flea carriers, also carry red mites and create a lot of dust and feathers when in a dry environment. Chickens also carry the bird flu. The bees are already in town. You cannot stop them. If there are

flowers you have bees. They will fly for many miles to obtain nectar and pollen. Without bees there would be no fruit or berries or crops like clover and alfalfa Peter Epp Sr. Williams Lake

TRU launches new blended learning human services program Tara Sprickerhoff Tribune Staff Writer Thompson Rivers University North is developing some new initiatives for next year’s classes in the Human Service Program. Four classes in the program will be taught next year with a style of delivery called “blended learning.” “Blending learning is taking the best of what is available online and taking the best of face to face in classes and putting it together,” said Jay Goddard, a professor and program director for the Human Service Program. Each course will be delivered differently, using the same concept of blended learning — some courses will have a week in the classroom at the end of the course applying the concepts learned through internet assignments, others will have a mix of classroom time and online research or experiential assignments to do with the topics students are

learning. “We picked four different models and we thought, we’re going to try them. We’re experimenting. It’s our first time through,” said Goddard. Professors, including Goddard, have taken workshops and done research on the blended style approach to learning and will integrate it into their classrooms as they see fit. “I am sure some things are not going to work for us and that we’re going to have to change. But one of our goals is that once we’ve developed a blended learning model, that it will stay as a blended learning model,” he said. The professors will also work closely with students, trying to identify what styles of blended learning work for them. At the beginning of the year, first year students will attend a mandatory three day orientation. The orientation will include

an introduction into the work they will be doing. Occasionally, Goddard said, there have been students who opt out of the programs because they are not ready for the type of work, both in the community and in the school, they will be doing. The orientation will also include an introduction to computers and the type of software and internet knowledge students will need to take the blended learning programs. The last day of orientation will be a group building day, “so people feel like they belong.” “One of the reasons [blended learning] really works is that you are able to build a cohort. You are able to build this idea that people will work together and then they will work together online,” said Goddard. Also new to the programs this year will be a partnership between

Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Each student will be required to be a mentor to a younger student through the program. “We’re moving towards an experiential model of teaching,” said Goddard. Experiential learning means that students will have as much experience in the field as possible before graduating. Classrooms will also be structured less

around lectures and more around hands-on learning Blended learning, said Goddard, “allows you in class to not spend all your time conveying information.” “There are people online who can teach about a topic far better than I can,” he said. “I have many more options I can present to [students] than me covering material.”

Goddard hopes that if the pilot classes this year work out, more classes will switch to blended learning models. The models allow students who are working or who live farther out of town to take classes or start their degrees. By only having one week of classes, or fewer days in the classrooms students only need to book off work or make it into town for a short period of time.

The rest of the course they can do from home or after hours. Goddard said he’s excited about the new models. “As much as I’ve got all this knowledge in my head, it’s never real until you do it.” Goddard also hopes blended learning will increase enrolment and bring new attention to the small campus. “It’s the way of the future,” he said.

Blue Fins medal at AA provs The Williams Lake Blue Fins swim club competed in Victoria this weekend at the B.C. AA Provincials. Six members of the club travelled to the Island to finish off their year and to try to qualify for provincials. Tracey Beauchamp, Ashley Beauchamp, Nadia Klaue, Danika Robson, David Russell and Geneva Gordon had a good meet to finish off the year. Unfortunately, none of them qualified for provincials, but some solid racing was done by all. Head Coach Chad Webb was happy with the team’s performance. “It is a tough time of year to post personal bests with all the distractions and time of year,” Webb said. “The swimmers have done a great job in improving many of their life skills and swim skills this year and they should all be proud of their hard work and accomplishments. “ The 15 and over relay team consisting of Danika, Ashley, Tracey, and Geneva swam their way to a bronze medal in the 200-metre free relay and a silver medal in the 200-metre medley relay. Ashley and David came home with individual medals, as well. Ashley received a bronze medal in the 200-metre individual medley, and David grabbed a silver in the 50-metre freestyle, and third in the 400-metre freestyle. Ashley just missed two medals in the 100-metre and 200-metre breaststroke as she battled her way to two lifetime bests and two fourth-place finishes. “The meet was a good one for these swimmers who now finish the year with

Arts for Hearts raises $6,500


Tara Sprickerhoff photos

Tara Sprickerhoff Tribune Staff Writer The Arts for Hearts fundraiser at the Williams Lake Tourism Discovery last week was a success, said organizers Susann and Mike Wolf. They raised more than $6,500 for their goal of purchasing six defibrillators for police cars in Williams Lake. Wolf works as a doctor in the emergency room in Williams Lake and saw the need to purchase the defibrillators so that if both of the two ambulances in town are on call, emergency response (in this case the police) would still have lifesaving equipment. “We want to change this for our community now,” he said during a presentation at the event. Re p r e s e n t a t i v e s from City Hall, the

The hair will be sent away to be made into a wig for those losing their hair during can-

cer treatments. “Annette had the most gorgeous red hair and was a wonderful cook and gardener,” Edgington says. “She always grew the best strawberries and we spent many hours in the kitchen together trying out new recipes” If you would like more information about donating your hair or want to join in the fight against cancer please call the Williams Lake Canadian Cancer Society office at 250-392-3442.

Be tough enough to wear pink to Stampede Sunday Tara Sprickerhoff Tribune Staff Writer An odd phenomenon happens at the World Famous Wil-

liams Lake Stampede on Sunday, June 30. Cowboys, cowgirls, announcers, board directors, clowns and hopefully the audience

will be wearing one colour: pink. Sunday is Tough Enough to Wear Pink day at the Williams Lake Stampede and $1

from every ticket sold will be split evenly between two local recipients. Half will be donated to the Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust for the purchase of a digital mammogram machine and half will be donated to Jay Smith, a lakecity logger. Smith was diagnosed February 2012 with squamous-cell skin cancer in his neck. Since Smith was diagnosed, he has undergone three chemotherapy sessions and 35 radiation treatments. Because of the cancer, he has also been unable to work throughout that time. The money Smith will receive from the Stampede Association will go towards his next trip to Vancouver

for a PET scan, which will determine if all of his treatments have been fully successful. Smith says he is thankful to receive the donation. “I can’t really say it’s an honour, because it’s not an honour to have cancer. It’s something you do not want to have,” he said. “It’s just a great thanks and the community is awesome.” For now Smith is making a recovery and is finally able to return to work. To others who have cancer he said, “You can do it. You just have to have a positive attitude and go at it just like the rodeo. You gotta have fun.” The other 50 per cent of the money will be going towards the

Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust for the purchase of a digital mammogram machine. Carol Ann Taphorn, the chairman of the organization, says the machine is needed to allow those who go for mammograms to get their results instantly. “When you have breast cancer it is very important to get that immediate reaction so that you can start whatever program you need to go into immediately,” she said. The Cariboo Foundation helped buy the original mammogram unit that the Cariboo Memorial Hospital currently uses. They are looking to fundraise $600,000 for the new $1 million machine. “We are a little over halfway,” Ta-

phorn said. The regional district will contribute the other $400,000 needed to buy the new unit. “Every year as a board we try and come up with somebody new,” said Sherry Bullock, an executive member for the Williams Lake Stampede Association. The association tries to spread the money around the community every year by donating to different causes and people. She encourages everyone to come out to the 12:45 p.m. Sunday performance at Stampede Grounds. “The more people that come out the bigger the pot, and we’re here to help out,” she said. And, don’t forget, wear pink.

enal at raising the bids. The handbag fetching the highest bid was a Lloyd and Wolf Couture bag by Vancouver designer Larissa Stefani that sold for $310 The ladies enjoyed a number of bonus mystery prizes they received after the bidding on the handbags closed.

Tolko raffles garden shed for Salvation Army Tara Sprickerhoff Tribune Staff Writer Tolko industries has built an all wood garden shed with cedar panels to raffle off, with all proceeds going to the Salvation Army. A conservative goal would be to raise $3,000 for the Salvation Army said raffle

organizer Shannon Smith. The money will be going to the food bank and kitchen program at the Salvation Army. Although the food bank has given out fewer hampers than usual in the first quarter of this year Cpt. Randy Kadonaga said that the need is still there.

The Community Kitchen Program teaches people how to become more selfsufficient through gardening, preserving and cooking foods. “The money is going where we need it,” Kadonaga said. The garden shed will be featured on the Tolko float during the

parade on a safety oriented and bright future themed float. Tickets are available

at the Tolko regional office until Thursday this week, and will be sold at the Street

Party on Saturday and throughout Stampede Weekend at the Stampede grounds.

Tickets are $5 and the draw will happen during Sunday’s Stampede performance.
