RCMP deal SLIPPING INTO SUMMER with runaway youths

Driver named in fatal crash

The Williams Lake RCMP reported a relatively steady weekend with approximately 100 calls for service and 39 prisoners apprehended. Williams Lake RCMP Inspector Warren Brown said the number was above average. “Although there were no significant occurrences, the Williams Lake RCMP were tied up with a number of runaway youths from group homes in the community,” Brown said. “These are common occurrences that tie up RCMP officers for hours while they attempt to locate and ensure the safety of these youth.” He adds there were also several alcohol related calls for service.

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a male who died following a motor vehicle incident near Riske Creek on Canada Day, as Tyson John Joseph Tenale, 25, of Williams Lake. Tenale was driving a Chevy four-by-four which was involved in a single-vehicle rollover incident on Stack Valley Road near Riske Creek in the Chilcotin about 11 a.m. on July 1 and was found deceased at the scene. The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.

Peterson Contracting Ltd. of Williams Lake has been awarded the tender of Stormwater Management Phase 5. Coming in at $850,279, Peterson’s was one of six bids the city received. The other tenders received were from Bree Construction for $863,961, Lauren Bros. Construction for $935,022, Colmar Construction for $1,072,381, Dawson Construction for $1,094,388 and Quality Excavation for $1,122,371. In a report to council, engi-

neering technologist Jeff Bernardy said a second award went to TRUE Consulting Group for the design engineer for the project totalling $30,000. The total amount for this project is $1.2 million including an Innovations Fund grant of $771,625.00. “Therefore, the compliant low construction tender from Peterson Contracting Ltd. of $850,279.50 is well within expectation,” Bernardy noted. There are also additional costs for irrigation $23,500 and planting, $14,000. “I’m glad to see that local con-

tractors have sharpened their pencils,” said Coun. Surinderpal Rathor. General manager of planning and operations Geoff Goodall said heavy rainstorms in June caused additional damage to the river valley escarpment that will require slight modification to the project and may result in some increased costs. “We don’t think they are going to be huge, but we need to put a temporary diversion in so we may be coming back to council to let them know there may be some changes to that program,” Goodall said.

The Williams Lake RCMP are looking for information regarding an alleged assault near Commodore Crescent. On June 29 at approximately 8:40 p.m. police located a male on Second Avenue North who appeared to have been assaulted because he was bleeding from the head. Police transported him to Cariboo Memorial Hospital for his injuries. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Williams Lake RCMP or Crime Stoppers. *** On June 28 an unknown male smashed the doors of three mail boxes in the community boxes in front of 1406 Broadway Ave. South in Williams Lake. No entry was gained, however, the male used a rock that was lying on the ground to do the damage. Any witnesses to this incident are asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222TIPS (8477).

Seniors lobby for ban on cosmetic herbicides Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Several seniors in Williams Lake are hoping the city will move to ban the use of cosmetic herbicides because they believe the chemicals, specifically Par III, impact their health when they are sprayed into the air. Canadian Cancer Society office manager in Williams Lake Ian Mackay is missing part of one lung and said there’s an odour to the chemicals used on lawns that hurts his breathing. “My lungs are suffering and it’s a concern,” Mackay said. “I think there are a lot of people in the community like us. Even the people spraying are wearing masks, so it cannot be good for you.” Since Mackay began voicing complaints, he’s heard from more and more people who have similar concerns. Glen Lahey operates Weed and Free Lawn care in Williams Lake and said he does use Par III Turf Herbicide and it’s perfectly legal. Some of the lawns he services don’t require any Par III because they’ve been well-maintained. He is licensed to use herbicides, and has not had many complaints in 25 years, he said, adding he’s cut down his use of chemicals drastically. “I had three or four people who were allergic to the smell of the fertilizer and all we do is call them up, let them know, they shut their windows and they are fine.” Lahey said he uses such a “small amount” on weed control. His company has been trying to go more natural and has been educating customers on how to sharpen lawn blades and develop watering routines that are more effective. He also uses a double

hose system so that only the areas with weeds get sprayed. “Fourteen or 15 years ago they used to just spray weed control over the whole lawn so they didn’t have to come back,” Lahey recalled. In 2012, the B.C. Government’s special committee on cosmetic pesticides released a decision not to recommend a provincial ban on the use of pesticides. “The committee assessed all the evidence carefully, taking more time than originally planned, and the majority of members concluded that currently there is insufficient scientific evidence to warrant a province-wide ban on the cosmetic use of pesticides,” the report noted. Over the counter sales of weed control were banned last year because of misuse, Lahey said. “They left it with the commercial companies to handle and that’s us. Health Canada basically said as long as it’s used properly by licensed people there’s no harm in it.” The Canadian Cancer Society Southern B.C. chapter said around 40 municipalities have adopted bylaws restricting the use of pesticides and herbicides on private and public lawns and gardens. In Williams Lake there is no ban, yet as a rule city crews only use a tiny bit of Roundup in some areas. “We use almost none when it comes to herbicides and pesticides,” the city confirmed. Kamloops adopted a bylaw restricting the use of pesticides and herbicides in March 2010, however, under the bylaw licensed companies can still use Par III. Brent Blysma owns Culture Care Landscaping in Kamloops. He stopped using Par III five

years ago and has chosen to get away from herbicides and pesticides as much as possible. “We don’t spray any pesticides or herbicides,” Blysma said. “Pesticides and herbicides are not good. If they kill something it’s not good and they aren’t good for my crew’s health or the environment.” His company does, however, subcontract to provide spraying of herbicides and pesticides if customers want them. Blysma used Par III previously to take care of weeds in lawns because it is “incredibly efficient,” does an excellent job, and is inexpensive, compared to labour. “If I did use it, it was because of the demand of the customer,” he said. “They wanted weeds gone on the lawn but wouldn’t pay $1,000 for us to pick them out by hand.” Blysma, like Lahey, has been educating his customers. “The best thing to do is grow an appreciation for dandelions and realize it’s OK if there are weeds in your lawn,” he said, adding people need to keep their lawns healthy. “The more healthy your lawns are then they will choke the weeds out.” Patti King is a

team leader and health educator with the Canadian Cancer Society, based in Cranbrook, and said rather than targeting one chemical the society opposes what chemicals are being used for. “If chemicals are being used to enhance a lawn or garden, our stance is that we call for a ban for use on private and public lands, such as parks, sports fields, especially places where children are.” Children are a special concern because they are still developing, King said, adding there is growing body of evidence linking exposure to pesticides with a higher risk to certain adult and childhood cancers. “Last year the Ontario College of Family Physicians did a pesticides literature review and it showed consistent links to serious illnesses such as reproductive problems, respiratory problems and neurological diseases linked with pesticide exposure,” King said. Mckay said the next step will be to create public awareness in Williams Lake and hopefully make a presentation to city hall. “I can’t believe that people would spray their lawns if they knew that it poses a health risk to others,” he said.

Cell phone, Internet service hit and miss in rural Cariboo Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Cell phone and Internet access remains hit and miss for many rural residents in the Cariboo Chilcotin. During a presentation to the Cariboo Regional District, Bert Braybrook, TELUS general manager of customer solutions delivery for the community, heard that message from many rural directors. Chad Mernett, director of Area K in the East Chilcotin wondered if there are any plans for his region, and heard TELUS has yet to reach the break-even point along Highway 20. “We’re dealing with a lot of mountains and corridors along river beds, with a lot more challenges,” Braybrook said. “As a business we’re looking to invest where we can get a solid return and right now, unfortunately, given the sparsity and the challenges it’s not something on our immediate horizon. Area H Director Margo Wagner said at every single community meeting she’s asked if

cell service and high speed Internet service is coming soon. Fibre optic cable goes through the Forest Grove area, yet people aren’t able to connect to it, she added. “We’re not hooked up to any high speed Internet because my understanding is you guys won’t make any money off of it,” she told Braybrook. She hears an “unbelievable” amount of frustration from residents because ABC communications is in the area with a couple of towers, she said. “I appreciate that you’re a business and you have to make money, but I don’t think you realize the amount of summer residential properties that are in my region, primarily owned by people who live in the Lower Mainland or are from Alberta that would be more than willing to pay a seasonal connect and disconnect,” she suggested. Braybrook confirmed there is fibre optic in the area, but said other factors come into play when cell sites are built, such as the availability of power and whether

CRD Chair Al Richmond, TELUS’s general manager of customer solutions Bert Braybrook and local manager Brian Mason. it’s sustainable, as well as real estate. “Some people are more forgiving of having a cell tower in their close proximity and obviously we want to put them in where the greatest populations are.” Wagner told him she has lots of land and would be willing to offer some for a cell tower. Echoing Wagner, Wells mayor Robin Sharpe said fibre optics comes out to his community and to Barkerville but there’s no high

speed Internet. “How much is the cost to put one in and would it be viable in the Wells area,” he asked, to which Braybrook answered on average the cost is $500,000 if things go well. He also said sometimes the capacity within a fibre optic system is allocated for existing network related activities and sometimes is not available to TELUS. Area E director Byron Kemp said cell phone service in the

fringe areas of Williams Lake is nil or spotty, and he receives many complaints. “I’m getting an awful lot of complaints with regards to this particularly with Eagle View which is only eight kilometres out of Williams Lake up the hill,” he said, adding his old bag phone got better coverage than the cell phone he owns. Area A director Ted Armstrong said he has received no communication from TELUS

about a cell tower planned for a site near his home. “I haven’t had a phone call, letter, e-mail or anything,” Armstrong said. Quesnel Mayor Mary Sjostrom said everyone wants service but whenever cell towers are proposed there is opposition. “If people want the service they have to support it, but communication and education would probably alleviate concerns. When I was in Fort St. John last I saw a huge cell tower in the parking lot downtown by Safeway.” High speed Internet would be an asset in Barkerville and other spots in his region, Area C director John Massier said. “We’re trying to set up a conservation learning institute and turn our 1860s classroom into a more modern technological venue for people to learn,” Massier said. Braybrook said TELUS invested $4.5 million into the Cariboo region in 2012 on cellular upgrades or installation of new sites. “Some of those sites were mostly along Highway 24, Deka Lake, Lac

La Hache, a new site at Enterprise and as well as Soda Creek to try and fill in the blank spots throughout the Interior.” There won’t be quite as much investment in 2013, but TELUS is looking at doing some upgrades, in and around the 100 Mile House area to increase capacity. The last couple of years the challenge has been the shift in technology. Presently traditional copper wire service is what’s in place in most areas and one of the things TELUS is considering is changing to fibre optic technology. Strictly in the planning stages and assessing costs, the company doesn’t have any firm dates to offer as to when and if the changes might take place. Recently phone service was installed for the Canoe Creek Band, he added. New wireless sites will be installed in 2014 possibly at 108 Mile and McLeese Lake, and increased capacity at Mount Bigbie, Williams Lake Airport, 150 Mile, Alexandria, Deka Lake and other areas around Williams Lake.

Locally grown food continues to sprout in popularity Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Locally grown food continues to grow in popularity with support from the Williams Lake Food Policy Council. “Our food co-op supports over 50 growers and producers. We’re bringing markets to our farmers and producers,” said food policy council chair Tatjana Bates in last week’s report to city council. “To grow a viable food economy is also a really important one of our goals.”

Bates updated city council on its 20132015 projects, goals and priorities, as well as presenting a review of what’s been accomplished since the council’s inception seven years ago. “We do an annual report every year, but we thought we’d do something different and capture a little creative video,” Bates said in delivering a video presentation of various projects. “The song’s a little funky, we’re trying to appeal to the young-

er crowd so we thought we’d move away from the cowboy theme.” As photographs of the council’s projects such as Seedy Saturday and the Memory Garden on Carson Avenue flashed across the screen, the parody song, created by The Peterson Farm Brothers in 2012, I’m Farming and I Grow It, accompanied them. “I want to point out that when I first moved here in 2002 there was a small farmer’s market on Friday and now we’ve put in 30 more

projects on our map and we’re quite excited about that,” Bates said. Two food forums have also been hosted by the council, with the second one in January 2012. “We went back to the community to develop a three-year production plan because we finished our first fiveyear action plan,” she said, adding the council is presently tweaking a document that will outline its future goals. One of the priorities aside from supporting

Cariboo Growers and the existing farmer’s markets, is to work on a second phase of the Community Memory Garden. “It’s coming along beautifully, all 45 beds are full, and another 22 beds are full, and a beautiful xeriscape garden was just created around the Rayel Macdonald memorial. What was once a triangular piece of land has been transformed to life. A two-phase plan will fit in a seating space,

fruit trees and berry bushes for students to come and learn and pick, 50 more garden beds, a greenhouse and eventually a root cellar, she said. Coun. Laurie Walters congratulated the council for all its work, along with growers in the community who help make it successful. Five years ago, Coun. Geoff Bourdon didn’t really care where his food came from, he told Bates. “I must say with the exposure your group’s had in the com-

munity and my own efforts to education myself, I can say half of the food I’m eating is sourced locally,” Bourdon said, adding it’s ‘’really easy” and it’s “really good.” And just a matter of educating the public. Mayor Kerry Cook commended Bates and her group for “hitting the ground and running.” “You haven’t stopped and it’s amazing how much you’ve accomplished in a short amount of time,” Cook said.

Report suggests city traffic control excellent Council recently received a traffic control review report dated January 2013 by McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. and authorized staff to make the necessary changes to both traffic

signage and line markings as recommended in the report. McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. completed their report in January this year and concluded that, in general, the traffic

control in Williams Lake is excellent. Signage is logical and typically in good condition, centre line markings follow a clear strategy related to road hierarchy and traffic signals are well

timed and maintained. The report further noted that more than 350 issues were recorded during the field visit in early November 2012. These ranged from minor suggestions

and curiosities to more significant concerns. City staff have reviewed the traffic control document and feel that all of these recommended changes can be achieved during 2013.

City RCMP contract costs to decrease for 2014/15 Williams Lake city council recently received a municipal contract policing resource request 2014/2015 report for information, and agreed to provide a letter of

approval in principle for the 2014/2015 fiscal year. The net decrease in proposed RCMP contract costs to the city for the 2014 budget would be approximately

$26,700 compared to the 2013 budget, based on the existing complement of 24 police officers. This decrease is contributed to federal initia-

tives that address cost containment for the city’s police service. Accommodation costs are also estimated to decrease $23,452 in 2014-2015 due to a rate

decrease for contracted services, and decrease in natural gas rates, as well as a change in the municipal percentage of total building establishment.

B.C. economy at make or brake stage maintains chamber CEO Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer B.C.’s economy is at a stage to make it or break it, said BC Chamber chief executive officer John Winter. Speaking to the Williams Lake and District Credit Union, Winter said the province has a strong foundation on which to build lasting prosperity. Gleaning from the Agenda of Shared Prosperity, a program the BC Chamber launched with the B.C. Business Council, Winter said the program is designed to look at creating a prosperous B.C. where all citizens benefit in economic growth and development. “B.C. has abundant natural resources, a highly skilled and educated workforce, a diverse and accepting society, safe, healthy communities, access to the world’s major markets and stable government institutions.” The province faces its challenges, which risk undermining its potential. Many British Columbians face a high cost of living and stagnant wages, he said. “Young people are increasingly disenfranchised. The province suffers an unacceptably high level of child poverty and British Columbians are growing increasingly dissatisfied and distrustful of the institution.” Quoting B.C. Business Council president Greg D’Avignon, Winter said B.C. has a culture of polarized debate and collective paralysis characterized by the inclination to say no to change: “We need to resolve these issues and we need to engage in a respectful productive dialogue that’s based on a shared fact base. We can no longer afford entrenched debates characterized by a zero-sum mindset where one side must lose in order for another side to win. A growing number of energized and capable regions around the world are fighting to capture

emerging economic opportunities and we in B.C. will need to harness all of our resources to stay competitive with them.” At the BC Chamber’s 2013 annual general meeting in May, members adopted 32 policies and 19 of them will go forward to the Canadian Chamber’s AGM in the fall. One of those is a policy on supporting Canada’s responsible resource development. “It’s very broad reaching and covers the entire resource sector, whether it be forestry, mining, agriculture or energy. It will encourage government to provide a much more expedited process,” Winter said. “We call for one project and one review process.” The BC Chamber is asking for new opportunities for forestry and mining and calls for government to step forward and address the continued challenge presented by uncertainty regarding First Nations and continued opposition to resource development often based on information that are “downright lies,”Winter said. In 2012, the chamber developed policies related to every government ministry in Victoria. “We’ve moved far beyond having policies on economic issues that are about taxation, regulation and things that are about economic drivers to policies that are about social policies such as homelessness, crime and those kinds of things that are important to businesses.” Crediting the influence of the chamber on government policies, Winter said the government has moved from its public policy agenda focus toward the resource sector. “This is in no small part due to the work of our own chamber movement, whose policy platform has been leading focused action on what is B.C.’s true resources potential.” Pointing to the recent election and its increase in Liberal caucus members, Win-

ter said rarely has the province been better represented by caucus members outside the Lower Mainland. The BC Chamber applauded the appointment of Bill Bennett as Minister of Energy and Mines, Steve Thomson as Minister of Forests and Lands, John Rustad as Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Christy Clark’s challenge for him to “get on with the treaty process,” and the Mary Polak as Minister of Environment. “We see Mary Polak in that role will facilitate economic development in a responsible way.” Winter said there was relief among the chamber membership due to the outcome of the election on May 14. “While the chamber is not a political organization, concerned only with advocating policy perspectives on behalf of its members, we knew that working with a free enterprise government had significant advantages over advocating probusiness perspectives to a government with a more broadly based policy framework with much less focus on the economy.” The next four years will be hard work, he said, adding the election campaign revealed the differences between the major parties.

Recent events could be eye openers


o one wants to hear unpleasant news in the summertime, but, drat it, not thinking or talking about bad news doesn’t make it go away. Like BC Hydro. Our prize Crown Corporation is not only in debt, a recent audit found the corporation is poorly prepared for any kind of catastrophe, like an earthquake.   Premier Clark can solve the debt problem by selling BC Hydro, perhaps to a U.S., Chinese French or even Connection a MaDiana French l ay s i a n company, but what about catastrophes? Some recent events could be a heads-up. For instance, no one knows yet what dangers might be lurking in radioactive material released from the Japanese nuclear plant damaged by the earthquake/tsunami two years ago. Fires, floods and tornadoes are getting to be regular occurrences and no one seems to be ready for them. We don’t hear too much about it in Canada, but in some countries (including the U.S.) drought is resulting in lower food harvests, wells are drying up and water tables are falling. What nature isn’t doing to us, we do to ourselves. Like the runaway train disaster in Quebec; oil spills anywhere and everywhere; and the latest, a petrochemical “sheen” on the Athabasca River apparently coming from the tar sands. In B.C. we have concerns about fracking for gas and the possible negative impacts of industry on our watersheds and ecosystems.   Williams Lake should be safe from floods and tornadoes, but there is always fire, and the city has both highway traffic and trains running through it. I believe we have emergency plans. Let’s hope they’re up to date. *** I  watch British TV comedy and mystery shows.   GD#5 watches one British TV show, Dr. Who.

Our Viewpoint

New pot rules need debate It’s obvious the federal government isn’t worried about communication. It was in June that Health Canada announced new policies regarding medicinal marijuana and that plants would no longer be grown in residential settings. Instead, industrialization of the process will take place. However, local authorities such as the Regional District of North Okanagan still don’t know what implications the new policy will have on them and their responsibilities for land use and ensuring buildings meet code. “A lot of people are scratching their heads about this,” said Rob Smailes, RDNO’s general manager of planning and building. And during a conference call with other local and provincial jurisdictions Thursday, it was clear that RDNO isn’t the only one unsure of its role. The concerns are valid as these large-scale op-

erations have the potential to be unlike anything local authorities have had to approve before. It’s anticipated they will be concrete or brick to ensure security and will follow different designs than a barn. For areas outside of the Agricultural Land Reserve, communities will have to determine if industrial zoning is in place. Many issues that have arisen with residential marijuana-grow sites will continue as well, including odour from chemicals and the potential fire risk such materials can create. With 2014 just around the corner and Ottawa bent on implementing its new rules, now is the time for the federal government to sit down with local authorities and discuss what its expectations are. After all, it will be local communities dealing with any fallout. - Vernon Morning Star

Organizations throughout the province can apMLA ply for gaming Musings g r a n t s, Coralee Oakes as long as they have been operating for at least one year prior to their application and fall into the category of arts and culture, sport, environment, public safety, human and social services, or parent advisory councils and district parent advisory councils. Gaming grants are awarded in batches on a rolling basis throughout the year, and a large number of organizations get funding for all sorts of programs and services. We expect around 5,300 organizations to share $135 million in gaming grants this year! This includes organizations right here in the Cariboo — just last month, the Quesnel Agricultural and Exhibition Society received a $10,000 grant to go towards funding the Quesnel Fall Fair 2013. If you work for an organization that may benefit from community gaming grants, don’t miss out on a great opportunity! Right now, applications are being accepted for the environment and public safety categories, with an application deadline of Aug. 31, as well as for human and social services, with a deadline of Nov. 30. It’s important to know when and how to apply; to find out more, visit gaming/ I hope to see many local organizations benefitting from this great program! Coralee Oakes is the MLA for Cariboo North and is the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Kindness will be remembered Editor: I would like to thank Alan Clark of Clarks Gravel Products of Williams Lake for coming to my rescue after the heavy thunderstorm of Saturday, June 22. I am a slightly handicapped senior who uses a walker to get around, and on the day of the storm, my property was literally deluged with water rushing down two streets to meet at my driveway. The two drains on the street

were unable to handle the volume of water, which first pooled in my driveway, which then spilled around both sides of my house and ran down to the lower garden, destroying the path on its way. I expected my basement would be flooded but luckily there was minimal damage there. Early Monday morning I spoke to Alan Clark and asked him for a quote for half a dump truck of gravel. As I knew nothing about types

of gravel, he asked if he could come over and take a look at the damage. He arrived within a half an hour, examined the area and advised me as to what would be best. We agreed, and I asked him what the cost would be so I could prepare a cheque. His answer was that he had experienced a good business year and that he intended to give me the gravel for free. Mr. Clark’s incredible gener-

osity to a complete stranger was very much appreciated, especially after such a traumatic experience. Williams Lake should be very proud to have such a wonderful man living and running a business in our town. Mr. Clark is an asset to our community and I will remember his kindness forever. Thank you Alan. Cathy Clements Williams Lake

Apply Christian philosophy to business Editor: Recently the CBC had a poll on the question: Do you believe that the word God should stay in Canadian culture? They had the highest response, ever for one of their polls, with 86 per cent wanting to keep God Keep Our Land in the national anthem. I am not a regular church goer. I do go sometimes to bond with loving people. I doubt there is a supreme entity on a throne somewhere. I do believe in Christian philosophy, and I appreciate similarities in Buddhism. But I also see how the UK has

got messed up letting go of their Christian heritage and enacting overindulgent legislation toward other religions. “God” represents part of our culture that serves to represent our historical and current Christian ethic way of life. If anything we need to emphasize the concept of God because we have drifted away from caring for each other. We have become dominated by a corporate monarchy, led by greed for money and power. We overvalue things and image. And we have also dumped the seventh day as one of rest and contemplation. Surely we need to turn that

around, and reconsider that Christian philosophy was fundamentally early socialism, focused on loving and caring. But socialism has unfortunately become a dirty word. Shouldn’t we manage the economy, not just to provide good services, but also to provide income to people, even without the capacity for complex skills. I believe Sweden has done this. The current paradigm of a corporate dominated society has done away with jobs by technology, and exporting jobs to foreign lands. We need a paradigm of pro-

viding goods and services for people by businesses that pay adequately for public resources and pay adequate taxes for the privilege of a business license. That paradigm could include co-operative businesses that retain free enterprise, if they are well led and focused on serving. But if you still feel like keeping your loyalty to big corporations, notice that General Motors has been moving their production to China, in spite of GM having received corporate welfare from North American governments for years.

Keeping a promise through miserable conditions Editor: A recent trip to Calgary and Lethbridge proved to be quite a challenge, arriving at Golden in pouring rain we were told that due to high water a bridge was under threat of being washed out at Canmore. Reports by truckers said that mud slides had also occurred further east along Highway 1, also that traffic was not being allowed past Golden. We soon found this out, as Highway 1 virtually stopped at Golden. No one but locals could get past the light at the foot of the hill. How important was it for us to carry on — grandparents having promised to attend

Letters aLways weLcome A7

graduation ceremonies for two grand children, plus the promise by great grandfather to give a great grandson a baby blessing, a ceremony somewhat like a christening. Following consultation with truckers, we decided to head south on Highway 95. This would add considerable distance to our proposed trip, but a promise is a promise. Not too much traffic and the highway is much improved since our last trip down this route. The miserable part of this, however, was the continued heavy rain coupled with growing darkness and the oncoming number of idiots with oversized wheels and extra bright lights totally blinding this driver on a

more than regular basis. The height of the headlights could be legal under the B.C. Motor Vehicle Act; however, headlight brightness is a new troubling factor for anybody with slow acting pupils. I would hate to be a marijuana smoker. Spending the night at Fernie, with much concern for slides and flooding that was occurring ahead and behind we made our way through Crows Nest Pass on Highway 3. Clearing a troubled area at Elkford we continued on our way toward Calgary. Later Highway 2 passing Fort McLeod, a near river located campground now totally flooded, left camper vehicles in the middle of a river lake.

At Claresholm we received advice concerning the road ahead, flooding at Nanton and High River had at times closed Highway 2, but now appeared to be passable. We then received advice for getting around Calgary passing High River to our left, kilometre after kilometre is totally flooded. At Calgary we followed the route as suggested traveling at the rate of half a kilometre per hour for several kilometres, complicated with several wrong moves, three hours following our entering Calgary we arrived at our destination.

Late report raises concerns Editor: An open letter to mayor/ council – City of Williams Lake. The City of Williams Lake officially served public notice on July 3 that its 2012 annual report was now available for public review and comment with the public being able to openly question items in the report at the council meeting on July 16 at 6 p.m. in Williams Lake council chambers The one and only question I have is — why does this council say it’s OK to twice submit your annual report late? The last one being submitted late was in 2010, which is contrary to sections 98 and 99 of the community charter. If your colleagues in Quesnel and 100 Mile House can submit their annual reports on time, why can’t you? Is it because there appears to be a leadership paralysis issue in the mayor’s office, here in Williams Lake?   I hope you’ll take the opportunity to explain this on July 16 because I think residents of Williams Lake are entitled to an answer.

CIHL loses a team, adds another When the Williams Lake Stampeders take to the ice this fall, the league will be much different than when the final horn sounded at the end of last season. The Omineca Ice of Vanderhoof are no longer a part of the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL). The team, which finished with a 6-10-2 record but struggled with icing enough players, informed the CIHL of its intention to fold during the annual general meeting in Smithers recently. The departure of the Ice, however, is offset by the return of a familiar foe. “The Hazelton Wolverines met the deadline and have provided all of the necessary credentials and documentation,” said CIHL president Ray Hallock of the Wolverines, who folded at the end of the 2012 season. “They will be playing next season. “This is good news for the league … the return of the Wolverines makes the existing east, west split continue to work for scheduling.” As for the product on the ice, the executive voted to do away with the automatic shootout in the event of a tie. By a unanimous vote of executive and player reps, games that end in a tie during regulation next season will enter a five-minute, four-on-four overtime period before proceeding to the shootout. “It was something that a player from Kitimat brought forward and something everyone agreed with,” said Prince Rupert Rampage defenseman Derek Baker. “From a player perspective going straight from regulation to a shootout isn’t the best way to go, so we’re looking forward to giving the fans that extra entertainment.” The 2013/14 season will include an 18-game schedule with three divisions. The west includes Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat; the central includes Hazelton, Smithers and Houston; and the east includes Quesnel, Williams Lake and Lac La Hache.

Clark Classic gets redneck Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer It was a redneck affair at the Esler Sports Complex Saturday when You Better Redneckognize took on the Housecoat Hillbillies in the final of the Fourth Annual Clark Classic Soccer Tournament. And when regulation decided nothing, it came down to penalty kicks. Housecoat Hillbillies’ sisters Ashly Hay and Angela Hay-Vicars both found the twine on You Better Redneckognize keeper Leah Watt to ice the victory. The win marked a come-frombehind effort as both Tanya Iachetta and Ashley Callander scored early in the second half for You Better Redneckognize, before the Housecoat Hillbillies tied it up in the dying seconds of regulation. Housecoat Hillbillies’ forward Allison Levens scored first while Hay-Vicars notched the tying goal. In semifinal play the Hillbillies downed the Gus Dynasty 2-0 with Levens scoring twice to reach the championship. In the other semi You Better Redneckognize edged CIFAC (Cariboo Initial Fire Attack Crew) 2-1. Ryan and Watt both scored for Redneckognize in the winning effort. The tournament, dedicated to longtime lakecity soccer coach, player and mentor Clark Glanville, featured five co-ed teams dressed in their trashiest redneck attire for this year’s theme. Andrea Gustafson, one of the tournament organizers, said Clark’s contribution to soccer in the community helped pave the way for many young players to continue on to play the game at a

Clark, along with his wife, Bev, took in the day’s festivities as both of Clark’s sons, Ryan and Sean Glanville, played in the tournament and in the final. Both the first- and second-place teams graciously donated their tournament winnings back to the

tournament to help send Clark and Bev on a holiday. In previous years the tournament has been used to help fundraise for the Esler Sports Complex’s playground. The tournament featured sevena-side play with three men and four women on the field at all times with five teams competing.

Blue Fins compete at AAA provincials The Williams Lake Blue Fins Swim Club wrapped up its season this past weekend in Vancouver at UBC where three local swimmers attended the B.C. AAA Swimming Championships. Kara Zavitz, Coral Choi and Madison Blusson competed against the best in the province and came away with some very good results, said Blue Fins head coach Chad Webb. Zavitz, in her first year at provincials, nearly made the finals in the 200-metre backstroke as she swam a three-second best time and finished 11th overall in the province among 13-year-old girls. Blusson finished 12th in both


the 100-metre breaststroke and 200-metre breaststroke in the 13-year-old girls division where she just moved to for her age group. Choi managed to make it into the finals in both the 50-metre freestyle and 100-metre breaststroke, but narrowly missed the 200-metre breaststroke final, placing ninth by less than a second. In her 100-metre breaststroke she placed eighth overall. Choi’s 50-metre freestyle was her best result, where she placed eighth going into finals. There, Webb said she swam a great race touching out two other swimmers to finish a solid sixth place.

Webb said the meet concludes the season for the Blue Fins, who will resume training again Sept. 16. Webb, who is finishing his first season back with the club, was happy with the year. “We increased enrollment by more than 30 per cent, increased our competitive enrollment at meets and had a few more qualified swimmers at the provincial meets,” he said. “Next year we aim to keep going in the same direction. We made a lot of changes this year and the parent group to help organize the club seems even bigger and better for September.”

The Williams Lake Blue Fins open water distance swim races, Smoke on the Water, go Sunday, July 28 at 9 a.m. at Chimney Lake. Distances include 750-metre, 1,500-meter and 3,000-metre swims. The swim starts from the public beach, and the event will be safety monitored by canoes and kayaks. Wetsuits are permitted as this is a nonsanctioned event. Entry fee is $30 and includes a high visibility swim cap and breakfast. Awards include bronze, silver and gold medals in all 3 distances in the following age groups: 12 and under, 13 to 15, 16 to 20, 21 to 30, 31 to 40, 41 to 50 and 51 and over. Refreshments will be provided to all participants and volunteers. Award presentations and draw prizes will be given after the last swimmer completes the course.

Get your bike in shape for Tour de Cariboo Brittany Klingmann Special to The Tribune If you have already registered to participate in this year’s Tour de Cariboo on Sept. 7, congratulations. If you are still on the fence and uncertain of whether you have the right equipment, bike fit, or worried about how to train in order to feel prepared to complete the distance, don’t worry — there is more information to come to put you at ease and motivate you to commit to participating in this great event. Are you in the market for a new bike? There really is nothing more important for creating a great cycling experience than matching yourself, — your body, goals and dreams — to the right bike. There are a variety of ways to fit a bike and since everyone and every type of bike is different, sometimes it’s easiest to speak to someone with years of experience. This will allow them to identify a bike that will suit your needs, goals and expectations. Scott Gordon at Barking Spider and Mark Savard at Red Shred’s are both excellent resources in Williams Lake. For those of you who already have a bike here are some basic tips. A proper bike fit is essential to minimize your risk of injury and maximize both comfort and efficiency of your ride. Remember — these are good general guidelines, but the ultimate no. 1 rule with bike fitting is comfort. The first step to proper bike fit is to make sure you have the right frame size. Stand over your bike’s top tube (in between the saddle and handlebars). The general ruleof-thumb for road biking is to have roughly one inch of clearance between your buttocks and the frame, for mountain biking on trails, you should have two to six inches depending on the terrain. From here, we are going to discuss the proper set up for road riding. What you will need is your bike, a

helper (friend, family or volunteer) and a plumb line. The first step is finding the appropriate saddle height. Sit on the saddle with your hips parallel to the ground. Place the crank arms of the pedals in line with the seat tube (your feet are at a 12 and 6 o’clock position). When your foot is at the 6 o’clock position, you should have a slight bend in the knee — approximately 10 degrees is desired. When making saddle height adjustments, make them slowly, as even a one-centimeter adjustment can have a drastic effect on how the bike feels and it may alter how stress is placed through the knees. Next is to adjust the fore/aft saddle position and saddle level. To do this you want to place the crank arms of the pedals so they are parallel with the ground (feet in 9 and 3 o’clock position). Have the helper drop a plumb line from the front of the knee that is in the 3 o’clock position down to the ground. The plumb line should fall through the center of the pedal (pedal axle). If it falls in front of the pedal, you will need to move the saddle back a little and conversely, if it falls behind, you will need to move the saddle forward a little. For saddle level, as a general rule, it’s always best to start with the saddle in a perfectly level position. If you are sliding forward from a forward-tilted saddle your neck, arms and back will be taking more stress and strain, and if the saddle is tilted backwards, you may place undue strain on your low back. When you lean forward, placing your hands on the handlebars, the handlebar should obscure your view of the front hub. If the hub is in front of the handlebar, you will need a slightly shorter stem and if the handlebar is behind, you will need a slightly longer stem. The body angle when hands are on the handlebars should be approximately 45 degrees; however, this

If you are a competitive cyclist, you may want a slightly steeper angle for better aerodynamics whereas if you are into touring or new to cycling, a more relaxed angle is more comfortable. Lastly, if you ride a bike with clip-less pedals, determining the position of the cleats on your cycling shoes is very important. Misaligned cleats can put stress through all joints

of the lower body. The cleat should contact the pedal at the ball of your foot and the feet should point forward when clipped into the pedals. A bike helmet is mandatory. The helmet should fit snug, touching the head all the way around. It should sit level with the chinstrap comfortably snug and stable enough that it remains in place in the event of a fall. Additional equipment to discuss — need to have and nice to have — in-

clude padded gloves, padded cycling shorts, a multi-tool, pump, spare tube and tire levers. Padded gloves are helpful in absorbing vibration and preventing road rash. Padded cycling shorts are a great investment especially for longer rides. Carrying a multi-tool, pump, spare tube and tire levers will ensure you have the tools necessary to change a flat tire and tighten any component on the bike that may work its way loose. Do remember that the tour does provide support drivers with the tools to help you out if you or your bike experience any distress. For more information or clarification, there are many helpful resources online by searching key words “bike fitting.” To register for the Tour de Cariboo, contact Williams Lake Big Brothers and Big Sisters at 250-398-8391 or on-line at Pledges can also be collected online.

I’ve been with the British Columbia Ambulance Service for over 39 years and during that time it’s been my pleasure to work with some very fine people. They are highly trained and dedicated professionals. Let’s not forget their families who experience, all the disappointments when the paramedic is sent on a long call at the end of his or her shift. It’s family time they will never get back. If you want to become a paramedic, consider the cost. When someone needs help, we’re dedicated to respond as quickly and safely as possible and to provide the best possible service to the fine people of British Columbia. The problem is time; time is our enemy. We cover a vast area, and it takes time to get to the scene of the accident, injured or ill person.

Sprockids hit lakecity mountain bike trails LeRae Haynes


Special to The Tribune The Sprockids program at Boys and Girls Club is on a roll and off to a great start, taking kids on bikes into the wilderness to stay active, make friends and develop new skills that can carry over into the rest of their lives. Youth services leader David Faubert said Sprockids is a life skill-building program where kids learn things like teamwork, goal setting and leadership. They also learn practical skills like maintenance, troubleshooting with their bikes and staying safe. Kids can bring their own bikes to Boys and Girls Club or can have them provided, and some parents volunteer to help out on the rides. There is a beginner/intermediate group for ages 9-12 on Monday and an advanced group for 12 and up on Wednesday. “Sprockids is a free, drop-in program,” Faubert said. “Your parents sign a waiver and you can come any day you want.” “The advanced group bikes on trails at Fox Mountain, Esler and South Lakeside, and the beginner group does some of the easier trails on Fox Mountain, as well as the River Valley,” Faubert said. “Throughout the season we pace them to see where they’re at — every time we try to challenge them more. The older riders pair up with the younger ones to support and encourage them.” 
The group climbs in the Boys and Girls Club van pulling a trailer with the bikes, and heads off every week for great adventures in

Children participating in the Boys and Girls Club Sprockids program enjoy riding on the Williams Lake River Valley Trail. the Cariboo wilderness, according to Faubert. This is the second year that Faubert has done the Sprockids program at Boys and Girls Club, and he said that a great side benefit for him personally is a big improvement in his health and his coordination. “It’s just great to be with kids in nature — we have such great variety in our wilderness here,” he said. “Sometimes we have a challenge day and ride from the Boys and Girls Club to the site. Our ‘ride guides’ are very experienced,” he added. “Before we hit a steep hill we’ll stop and they’ll

give the kids pointers about turning and using their brakes. “Williams Lake has worldclass bike trails — known around the world. This is such a great resource for our community,” he said. “Special thanks goes to Mark at Red Shred’s for all the support they’ve provided to this program and to kids in our community.” 
 He also said that the free program, open to all kids, runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the summer and as far into the fall as possible. “The goal is to keep the kids active, outdoors and engaged. Sprockids also builds social-

izing skills, and it’s so great to watch the kids take on leadership roles. 
The kids get a real sense of achievement at the end of a challenge — they feel really good about themselves,” he continued. “Setting a goal and succeeding is powerful.” The Sprockids program is in need of used bikes for the younger kids. For more information about joining the free program, volunteering or donating a bicycle, phone 250-392-5730 or email or visit and follow them on Facebook for upcoming programs.

There is a full schedule of performances and events Friday evening, July 12, and all day Saturday, July 13.

Lorne Dufour celebrates launch of his new book Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune Friends, family and adoring fans of McLeese Lake poet Lorne Dufour gathered at the Gecko Tree Restaurant last Friday, June 21, to celebrate Lorne’s new book The Silence of

Horses. Musicians, poets and spoken word artists took to the stage to share their songs, verse and anecdotes. Jean Wellburn set the tone for the evening playing music on her harp. Taking to the stage were musicians Oren Barter,

Thom Walker, John Kopas, Astrid Hensey, Jeffrey Newman, Alex Zamoxano and Sage Birchwater. Poets Debby Peck and Chris Hensey recited some of their verse along with Lorne Dufour of course, who recited selections from all three of his poetry books.

Local talent showcased This year’s Performances in the Park summer concert series kicked off last Thursday, July 4 with performances by Angelkeys Music Studio featuring the sweet voices of Angelkeys Children’s Choir and solo performances by very talented young singers followed by the toe tapping tunes of the Old Time Fiddlers. Thanks to the support from the City of Williams Lake, the Cariboo Regional District and local sponsors, the stage will light up in Boitanio Park each Thursday evening from July 4 to Aug. 22 with talented local and provincial performers. From 6 to 6:45 p.m. and then from 7 to 8 p.m. each Thursday evening will be filled with family friendly entertainment. Having two time slots provides opportunity for young performers to grow their stage legs and on some nights there will be two main acts, say event organizers. Michelle Erlandson and Music for Life will be featured this Thursday, July 11 followed by Colin Easthope and the Coal Harbour Band. 

This rising Canadian songsmith fills the air with warm harmonic tones and a surprising sincerity. Some of the band members hail from Williams Lake in times past. On July 18 the Williams Lake Youth Fiddlers and Friends take the stage, followed by the high-energy, up-tempo and spacey electro funk rock of Brent Morton and his new act When the Walls Bend. Both are sure to entertain. Williams Lake’s got Talent on July 25 features young Williams Lake singers who delight and mesmerise audiences with jazz and folk songs, followed by the foot-stomping country gospel tunes of New Journey. Aug. 1 features the Eagle Spirit Band’s country rock and Jordan Holmes will take you through a fusion of blues, folk, soul and Eastern music to journey through dreamscapes and drift on afternoon clouds. The up-and-coming rock band Beautifully Haunting is playing original tunes on August 8 followed by Perfect

Match, who are playing cross-over country/pop/ light rock with lively originals that are easy on the ear and good for the heart. Locals Robyn Ferguson and Oren Barter are teaming up on Aug. 15 and Brett Wildeman will charm the audience with raw coastal folk inspired by his upbringing in a rural coastal environment. The final performance night on Aug. 22 will see Rowan, Kylie and Sam, a trio originally from Williams Lake, singing covers and original tunes, and My Wife’s Quartet, an experienced and talented group of musicians who will play to your heart and soul. Check out or www. performances.html for updates, details and pictures from Performances in the Park concerts.

Author pens first fantasy novel Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune Jay Earl Robertson is the Cariboo’s latest author — selfpublished and happy to get his first work under his belt. Earlier this year he saw the first of five fantasy fiction books he plans to write become a reality. War of the Frozen Fire arrived back from Virtual Book Worm recently and Robertson is pleased as punch. If you love the twisting plot of light and dark forces battling it out with humans, elves, dwarves, fairies, were-beasts, gargoyles, orcs and underworld characters in the manner of Lord of the Rings, Robertson might be the author for you. And if you get into his lively plot of the defenders of Mastasia trying to solve the mystery of the frozen fire threatening to destroy their world, don’t be dismayed. War of the Frozen Fire is just the first of a pentalogy (five volumes) Robertson plans to write. His fantasy fiction has been a long time coming. “It was in 2000 when I did an outline for the whole thing as a 23-year-old,” he says. He lists the other four volumes that are a work-in-progress at the moment. “Blue Moon over Wishwater, Book of Blades, Amethyst Morning and Cions of Shadowdawn. “The outlines are mostly done but the other books aren’t published yet.” Robertson, who

Jay Earl Robertson with his first book of fiction War of the Frozen Fire. works in the dairy department at Williams Lake Walmart and was training to be a phlebotomist (someone who draws blood from people), finally achieved his dream of becoming a published author when he discovered Virtual, a self-publishing company in Texas associated with Amazon Books. He says when he sent his manuscript to Virtual Bookworm, they liked it right away. “They had three editors look it over.” He says he went to them because they screen the works submitted to them and they pay the highest royalty he could find. “I own all the rights and get paid a royalty on any books that are sold.” He says he is supposed to get a royalty cheque once a month as long as it is $25 or more. “I’m not sure how

much I’m going to get because I haven’t received a royalty payment yet.” It cost Robertson $865 to self-publish and for that price the company did the editing, designed the cover, set up the ISBN number, and sent him five paperback copies of the book. Getting copies of the book is fairly straightforward because it is print-ondemand from the publisher, It costs $14.95 for the 380-page paperback, plus shipping and handling, and $9.99 for a Kindle e-book edition. It can also be ordered from Amazon. com and for a slightly higher price, and Robertson is checking with local bookstores to see if they are interested in carrying it. So far Robertson has tracked sales of his book to Europe, Canada and Texas.

RCMP Musical Ride next week The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride will be performing at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds in Williams Lake on Thursday, July 18. There will be one show only at 6:30 p.m. with other entertainment leading up to the

performance. The horse stables will be open to the public at no charge from 9 a.m. on July 18 except during show time. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and available in advance at Cariboo GM, Margetts Meats,

J & E Gifts, Taylor Made Cakes and Sweets and the RCMP Detachment office. Tickets will also be available at the gate prior to the start of the event. Proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the community.

He has friends in Quesnel who ordered the book and got it

right away. While the Kindle price is cheaper, he says his friends want the paperback version so they can get him to sign it for them. “I know lots of people in Williams Lake and Quesnel who want a book.” Robertson says he loves Stephen King and is a great fan of Terry Brooks, the author of the Shannara Series. “I’m interested in writing Sci-fi and scary stories.” Meanwhile he is whittling away on his pentalogy, setting time aside each day for writing. “If I can type 1,000 words a day I’ll get it done. In the five-part book I know where everything is going to go.”
