Dr. Doug Magnowksi from Animal Care Hospital in Williams Lake said there have been three cougar ‘events’ in the past few days in Chimney Valley. He noted a foal was badly injured by a cougar, three sheep were killed on another property and a small dog is believed to have been taken by a cougar. He said it’s important for the public to be aware of cougars in their neighbourhoods and to take precautions, such as locking up small pets and livestock at night and taking care not to walk alone at dusk or dawn. Sergeant Len Butler of the BC Conservation Officer Service in Williams Lake said phoning to report an incident immediately is very important. “We set up cameras and traps in Chimney Valley but the sheep

kills were several days old. “We need to hear right away,” he said.

“We hear about cougars almost daily, and although we don’t want to create hysteria, we like to let people know. “We have a lot of predators here, including cougars and it’s a good idea to be aware.” He added Chimney Valley is a natural ‘corridor’ for wild animals and noted it’s important for people with livestock to practice good husbandry. “If you and your neighbours hear about a cougar or bear in your area, letting your livestock run free isn’t a good idea,” he said. “We’re always going to have cougars here — you can’t eradicate them all, but a cat feeding on livestock we need to know about immediately.” Public safety is the first priority, said Butler, who stated the BC Conservation office in Williams Lake received more than 1,500 wildlife problem calls last

year. “It’s like triage — we have to do the most serious calls first in an area that covers Quesnel to 100 Mile House and to Bella Coola, and we do our best to get there as soon as possible,” he explained. “Public and human safety is always first.” He said people walking during the daytime are generally not problem when it comes to predators, but that dawn, dusk and evening is when animals hunt. “Be aware and be diligent with your pets and livestock,” he continued. “If you do see a cougar or have an incident with livestock call the RAPP line 1-877-9527277.” For more information about wildlife and how to co-exist safely with animals in your area, visit

NEWS Fish Lake at the heart of panel discussions Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Fish Lake was central to the aquatic environment presentations held Monday and Tuesday during the federal review panel hearings for the New Prosperity GoldCopper Mine. Describing himself as a “town crier” Dr. John Stockner, expert witness for the Tsilhqot’in National Government, predicted within a decade Fish Lake will die if the mine was developed. “It will die for the fish,” Stockner said. “They simply will be forced in one February night under ice cover and a skim of snow in darkness, the fish will be forced to the surface of the ice,” Stockner said. Taseko’s project manager Greg Smyth sought clarification on comments on water treatment made by TNG expert Don MacDonald. “Were you suggesting the details cannot be worked out in the permitting stage?” Smyth asked. The central issue around the assessment is whether or not Fish Lake can be preserved, MacDonald responded. “The information that was generated by the company demonstrates clearly that there would be exceedances of levels that are predicted for individual contaminants to cause adverse effects.” MacDonald said it’s essential everyone understands all of the measures specifically that are going to be used to assess the water quality of Fish Lake, during the environmental assessment, otherwise it’s not pos-

sible to conclude with any certainty that the project can proceed without having adverse effects on the lake. When asked how his expectations compared to current regulatory guidance for environmental assessments, MacDonald responded he expected to see three years of monthly data collected at key locations at the mine. “In addition we indicated we would like to see four, five and 30day sampling events during that three-year period, including two during high flow events and two during low level events,” MacDonald said. After a presentation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, panel member Ron Smyth said DFO’s presentation highlighted uncertainties about preserving Fish Lake. “Are there any other ways to reduce these uncertainties so that reviewers can have confidence in the project or are we just left with adaptive management and compensation?” Smyth asked. DFO has provided some information in its submission on suggestions of improvements that could be made, different mitigation such as channel maintenance flows, and maintaining temperatures, said senior fisheries protection biologist Brenda Rotinsky. Dr. Daniel Selbie, also part of the DFO team, said there are a lot of factors driving the lake’s system. “Other presentations have raised concerns about climate change and how that might affect the system,” Selbie said. “We haven’t heard

a lot about how the mitigation strategies might have an impact on the aquatic ecology of Fish Lake and how that will translate out to Rainbow Trout populations.” At the end of the two-day aquatic sessions Tuesday, Taseko responded briefly to the presentations and promised it would submit more in writing to the panel. “I think some of the presenters may have simplified some of the actual reports they were talking about,” said Ryan Whitehouse, senior aquatic biologist with Triton Environmental. “In many of the reports the baselines were deemed to be inadequate and that led to uncertainty which leads to an inability for them to properly evaluate the environmental affects.” Whitehouse said he would be the first to admit the baselines are not necessarily perfect, but Taseko can always collect more data. “I think the panel will find that Environment Canada


recognized the water quality baseline to be adequate to make their decisions and perhaps some of the expectations of the other experts were outside the expectations placed in normal environmental assessment baseline studies.” Whitehouse also suggested the experts did not deal with the company’s entire report as a whole.

“For instance, they’d pick one thing that they wanted to talk about and disregarded a lot of other things, and sometimes incorrectly even said that we didn’t handle those other things.” The environment is an extremely complicated thing, Whitehouse said. “What we’re left with to deal with these complications

put together in the way that we are proposing they be put together,” Jones said. Taseko’s legal counsel Karl Gustafson said uncertainty was a recurring theme throughout the aquatic environment presentations. “Certainty is not required for the panel to make its decision,” Gustafson said. “In a proceeding of this nature uncertainty is to be expected. The assumption is that’s something we have to live with as these kinds of projects evolve in these early stages and then progress through detailed design and permitting.” On Wednesday the topic-specific hearings switched to terrestrial environment and on Thursday to human environment. Starting next week the community hearings in First Nations will be begin, with the first sessions in Nemiah Valley on Tuesday Aug. 6. Full transcripts are available on the CEAA website.

is perhaps oversimplification, but they are models and there are defensible ways of dealing with it whether they are water quality guidelines, whether they are models to predict productivity.” Project manager Greg Smyth said there was a large team effort on the project to try and understand all the particular issues around water quality. “There was a lot of different interaction over many many months to bring this together so there was a good understanding of our respective models by the project team.” Project manager Scott Jones, “cut to the chase,” on water management and said while no other project may have been required to do what Taseko is proposing — to preserve Fish Lake — each of the components of the system have been proven. “In short, all of the components of the system have been proven at this scale they just haven’t been

City orders fire-affected homes ‘do not occupy’ Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Tena Unrau was busy moving Tuesday. She lived next door to the Yorston Street apartment house destroyed by fire last Friday and was told she had to move because the city has placed a “do not occupy” order on the apartment houses directly next door. Unrau was living in the house on the east side of the burnt out building, but said she has found a new place to live. Community policing co-ordinator

Dave Dickson said by Wednesday evening he anticipated that all 16 people displaced by the fire would have accommodation. Unrau had lived there for two years and learned about the fire Friday morning when she returned to Williams Lake from camping. “We were trying to find my daughter because she was staying here,” Unrau said. There were two adults and four children living with her, she said, as she called to her daughter to make sure to grab her drum.

A “do not occupy order,” on the apartment houses next door to the one destroyed by fire Friday, has forced Tena Unrau to move. Her belongings are OK and what she cannot wash at home,

she’ll take to the dry cleaners she said. City manager of op-

erations Geoff Goodall said the “do not occupy” order went up

because the city will be requiring an engineer’s report saying the buildings are structurally safe. “Then we’ll do a health and safety inspection on the buildings to make sure everything is good.” There’s no date set for the engineer’s report, although Goodall said the building on the west side sustained quite a “whack” when the burnt building came down. “We want to make sure when and if the buildings are reoccupied they are safe to do so. That’s the city’s take on it,” Goodall said.

The burnt out foundation has to be safe and in the meantime there is security on site round the clock. PD Security guard Joan Boehm said people have been coming to the homes continuously to get their belongings. Last Friday as he watched the fire, Ed LeBlanc told the Tribune he was worried about his four cats. He lived in the apartment house down below next door where he lived, but Boehm said everyone found their pets. “We had no loss of life,” Boehm said.

Patenaude part of Fraser River sustainability program Tara Sprickerhoff Tribune Staff Writer In a 25 day journey, Horsefly resident Marin Patenaude and seven other participants are travelling 1,375 km down the length of the Fraser River as part of the Rivershed Society of BC’s Sustainable Living Leadership Program. The participants are canoeing, rafting, hiking and busing from the headwaters of the Fraser River down to its mouth in Vancouver in order to learn about stewardship, watersheds, salmon and above all, sustainability. During the trip, aside from the travels and other topics, the participants are working to develop their own unique sustainability projects. Patenaude’s personal project will be develop-

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Marin Patenaude, executive director of the Potato House, will be part of a 25 day journey down the Fraser to learn about sustainability. ing a compilation CD related to the Fraser watershed. “I originally approached the Rivershed Society to develop and commission a bunch of local artists to write songs about the Fraser River, or songs about the salmon or the watershed in general or environmentalism,” she said. Patenaude, who is

the executive director of the Williams Lake Potato house, said that proceeds from her CD will go towards the Potato House. Mary Forbes, the president of the Potato House Sustainable Community Society, attended the leadership program in 2010. From it, she developed her plan to start the Potato House proj-

ect in order to create awareness about sustainability. Patenaude’s project is built to complement the Potato House and Forbe’s vision. She hopes the trip will allow her to network and organize her plans for the project, including figuring out how to fund the CD, so that she will be able to come back to to com-

munity and implement her ideas. On top of preparing her project, Patenaude is excited to travel the entire Fraser River. “I’ve never done anything like that,” she said. The participants, alongside their facilitators will be attending Cultural Day Celebrations at the Xat’sull Heritage Village, a Fisheries and Oceans Canada juvenile fish net demonstration at Sheep Creek Bridge as well as the Salmon in the Canyon Festival in Cayoosh Creek. Patenaude is also looking forward to the long expanses of river with no one around. “I am just so excited to be around those parts of the world that have absolutely zero access and are fairly untouched,” she said. As a self-declared “animal person” she will be

looking out especially for the wildlife and animal habitats. As well, the main focus of the program, sustainability, is a subject close to Patenaude’s heart. “We think and behave as though the world is impervious to our effects. Which it is not. It’s actually extremely sensitive to it, and I don’t think that’s recognized enough,” she said. As part of her job at the Potato House, Patenaude has developed the community composting project, which is now up and running. She encourages downtown businesses and those nearby to drop their composting off at the Potato House. She also hopes to develop the house into a sustainable education centre in the hopes of raising awareness about sustainability.

“If there is a passion and a love for the land, then we’ll be more predisposed to take care of it,” she said “As long as I can inspire people, that’s my job done.” Patenaude’s journey down the Fraser started today, Thursday, Aug. 1 and will conclude on Aug. 25, after which she will return to the lakecity and begin work on her project. The Rivershed Society was founded by Fin Donnelly in 1996 in the wake of his Swim for Life down the length of the Fraser River. The organization is dedicated to improving the health of both the Fraser River Basin and all those who live within the Basin.

Campfire ban for south Cariboo begins Thursday Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer In anticipation of the August long weekend, the Cariboo Fire Centre is joining several centres around the province and putting in a campfire ban for the southern portions of the region. The ban goes into effect at noon on Thursday, Aug. 1. Areas affected are from Quesnel-Chilcotin/ Central Cariboo forest districts boundary, heading east to Highway 97, south to 150 Mile House, east along the Redeaux Lake Fire Service Road, then following the Central Cariboo-100 Mile House forest districts boundary. It extends east to Wells Gray Provincial Park, south to Loon Lake near Clinton and west to Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. A map of the area covered by the campfire ban is available online at: Bans are going up in other areas of the province including the entire Kamloops and Bella Coola regions, and the southeast is planning to put one in effect on Monday, CFC fire in-

formation officer Greig Bethel said Wednesday. “Traditionally a campfire ban has always been brought in before the long weekend if conditions call for it. Within the CFC the fire danger rating is currently high, with scattered pockets of extreme.” So far in 2013 there have been a total of 75 fires and 59 of them have been human-caused. “That’s about 78 per cent and that is way above average,” Bethel said, adding the 10-year average for the Cariboo is 33 per cent personcaused fires. Besides, he added: “Human-caused wildfires can divert critical resources and crews from responding to naturally occurring wildfires.” Throughout the entire region, open burning is prohibited and applies to open fires of any size, industrial or backyard burning, fireworks, tiki torches, sky lanterns and burning barrels. The campfire prohibition does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or to portable campfire apparatus with

a CSA or ULC rating that uses briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, as long as the height of the flame is less than 15 centimeters. The open burning prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Rural residents are asked to check with local governments for any other restrictions before lighting a fire. Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban, including campfires, may be issued a ticket of up to $345 and anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated firefighting costs. “We have had to ticket people disregarding the open fire prohibition,” Bethel confirmed. “There have been written warnings and verbal warnings.” The campfire prohibition will remain in place

until Sept. 30 or until the public is informed otherwise. Bethel said the ban only impacts half the region because of its diversity. “That’s what makes this fire centre such a challenge,” he said. “There are 14 bio-ecological zones in B.C. and the Cariboo has 11 of them so it’s pretty diverse. It goes from the grasslands in the Churn Creek area, lodgepole pine in the Chilcotin to the cedars in the Quesnel Lake area.” Crew members at CFC are presently at the base waiting for their next deployment, although an air tanker left the base at Williams Lake airport Tuesday to drop retardant on a fire near Valemount, Bethel said. To report a wildfire or noncompliant open burning, call 1-800-6635555 toll-free or dial *5555 on a cellphone.

Ripe for the picking

Great to be home for B.C. Day


s I reached to pick some raspberries from one of my husband’s five canes last night, thinking someone has to eat them because most of our family is away in Prince Rupert, it triggered a memory. I think it is my earliest one. I am with my mom at a U-pick in Terrace. She is dressed in dark clothing and crouched down picking beside me. As I reach Keeping to pop Afloat a berry Monica into my Lamb-Yorski mouth, s h e glares and says: “No.” She explains that we have to pay before we can eat them. I was two years old at the time. Perhaps a psychiatrist might suggest there’s a reason this is my first memory. Was it my first realization of the importance of being honest? I don’t know. I only know that memory has always stuck. Years later in Nelson when I was eight years old, our neighbourhood gang ended up in someone else’s yard snitching edible chestnuts. I wasn’t bold enough to pick them off the tree. But don’t be fooled, I was tricky enough to justify to myself that it was OK to pick them up from the ground. My conscience, unlike my fingers as I handled the edible chestnuts and their porcupinelike covers, wasn’t pricked. Not until a lady yelled at us to get out of the yard. Then the dread set in and hours later my father could hear me sobbing from my bed. When he asked what was wrong and my tale came tumbling out, he assured me what I’d done was wrong but the good news was my remorse probably meant I wouldn’t do it again. I think whether it be sweet raspberries or prickly chestnuts, along the way we learn what is rightfully ours. And some of us, like w Potter’s little Peter Rabbit, need more lessons than others.


Our Viewpoint

NDP panel will find fear works Guided by research being undertaken this summer by a diverse, five-person panel, the New Democratic Party plans to tackle the issue of just how they lost an election they were destined to win. Party president Moe Sihota, no stranger to the election process and campaigning, admitted the NDP must do some serious soul-searching to solve the riddle of how to get the better of the B.C. Liberals. Many factors contributed to the loss of the NDP’s grip on the hearts and minds of the province’s voters. There was leader Adrian Dix’s mid-campaign flip-flop on oil pipelines and the party’s lack of laserlike focus on a small number of issues while the Liberals focused on one: the economy. Even the lack of natural charisma of Dix himself helped create the perfect political storm. The NDP can do all the analysis it wants to try

and find answers. But the unpalatable fact that negative advertising works, especially when aimed at a relatively large number of undecided voters, is a reality the party must face for the next election. Sihota acknowledged both his party and the B.C. Liberals were surprised at the effectiveness of the governing party’s approach; the way it stirred fear on the part of B.C. voters at the prospect of leaving the economy in the hands of the NDP. Putting it into business terms, the voting public in too many areas of the province — the Capital Region excluded — weren’t sold on the NDP brand. It may go against party philosophy, but perhaps the NDP needs to consult an image specialist before the next election. One need only to look south of the border, to the past presidential election, to realize how well creating fear can work. - Victoria News

’d like to wish all of you a happy B.C. Day! After five weeks spent mostly down in Victoria, it’s great to be home just in time for the long weekend. Last week, we wrapped up our first session of the new Legislature. It was a productive few weeks in Victoria, as MLAs from across the province, both new and returning, had the chance to listen MLA to the Musings T h ro n e Donna Barnett speech, debate the budget, and present motions and statements in the House. For me, one of the biggest highlights of the session came last Wednesday, on B.C. Beef Day. On Beef Day, we celebrated the important partnership between our cattlemen and the provincial government. The B.C. Cattlemen’s Association held a barbecue showcasing their great beef, there was country music playing, we had some guest speakers from the beef industry and the Legislature, and I had the chance to emcee the event. That being said, it is great to be home, especially with B.C. Day just around the corner. With the long weekend coming up, there are lots of fun activities happening in the Cariboo. You can catch some exciting rodeo action over the weekend, with the 23rd annual Interlakes rodeo happening on August 3d and 4th. The 36th Nemiah Valley Rodeo is also happening on the same dates, so there are a couple of options to choose from. For those of you who can’t wait to see more, the next rodeo after these two will be at Redstone on August 17th and 18th, so don’t miss out! I hope you get the chance to spend some quality time with the family over the long weekend, maybe over a barbecue with some of our delicious B.C. beef. If you go camping, please remember that there is a fire ban on in the Cariboo right now, and call *5555 on your cell phone to report any wildfires. Have a safe and fun weekend! Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Mine benefits everyone Editor: Twenty years ago the concept of this mine was first brought to everyone’s attention, starting with the development of the Cariboo land Use plan. Mining in this part of the world has a rich history and is well documented. There’s no question the development of this mine will change part of the landscape in the Chilcotin as most large scale developments ultimately do. Highland Valley copper mine which has been operating for over 40 years forever changed the land scape but also generated thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity for the region and Province. Rather than First Nation leaders and others fighting what

could be inevitable, focus should be on taking full advantage of the many positive benefits that could be negotiated with Taseko to secure the best possible outcome for people of the area and region. Employment opportunities are not limited to just working in the pit or processing mill but all the other skilled jobs needed to facilitate the environmental requirements attached to the project. These positions require training and courses that could be started today to prepare people for these employment opportunities. There are also all the support services and induced job opportunities this project can provide that open the door to many in the region that may find more attractive and fit with their personal life and goals.

The mine will change a small portion of this vast area but the benefits to those that live in the region that strive for independence and financial security for their families has to play a major role in this process. If Taseko can find $300 million to alter the plans to save Fish Lake and enhance environmental protection there are also funds to address training and local infrastructure and leave a legacy of skilled workers. The foot print of this mine on the land is insignificant compared to the struggles of those wanting to provide for themselves their families while maintaining or regaining their dignity and selfrespect. Terry Tate Williams Lake

Take firm moral stand on mine Editor: On May 17, 2013 the City of Williams Lake unveiled two monuments of reconciliation apologizing to First Nations for forcibly taking generations of aboriginal students from their homes and placing them in residential schools. Mayor Kerry Cook took a leading role in the apology ceremony. She said the monuments are a reminder how to move forward. She said she wants a city where all people feel welcome and are respected. Mayor Cook lauds the eco- A7

nomic benefits of New Prosperity mine, yet she refuses to blow the whistle on a hostile intrusion into Xeni Gwet’in territory. Is she proposing we apologize to the Xeni Gwet’in and Tsilhqot’in First Nation in 30 years after plunking a mine down in their midst against their wishes? Mayor Cook plays down First Nations opposition to the mine saying she needs to acknowledge that some of her First Nations neighbours are against it. By not taking a firm moral stand on how Taseko Mines Ltd. conducts its business with First

Nations, Mayor Cook is complicit with invading Xen Gwet’in and Tsilhqot’in territory and pushing them aside. She is condoning the colonial attitude of conquering and disrespecting the people who live there. What is Mayor Cook prepared to do to ensure that history doesn’t repeat itself and that cultural genocide, environmental racism, and human rights violations don’t occur under her watch?

Fish Lake area called Nabas quite actively used Editor: I read with disbelief Doug Wilson’s badly misinformed letter in the Tribune regarding Fish Lake, the Roger William case for rights and title, and the hearings into New Prosperity mine. The area called Nabas, that includes Fish lake, Fish Creek, Little Fish Lake, Onion Lake, Little Onion Lake and Wasp Lake (all of which will be threatened by contaminated tailings pond seepage accord-

Letters aLways weLcome

ing to Environment Canada scientists), is within the trapline area that is included in the Roger William case. The Appeal Court of B.C. has entrenched, and enforceable, Aboriginal rights here. Too bad that drumming offends Mr. Wilson. It is, in this context, a cultural formality respectful of the process and all participants. Xeni Gwet’in, in whose Caretaker lands Nabas lies, are a spiritual people. If he were to attend the hear-

ings he would learn just what an environmentally destructive operation New Prosperity would be. Environment Canada yesterday cited “some inconsistencies in the EIS, some uncertainty regarding seepage from the tailing storage facility (TSF), the unproven nature of some of the water recirculation and some of the proposed treatment methods, ...” sufficient to cast serious doubt on the ability of Fish Lake to survive after more than a few years of

mine life. It would seem that Taseko Mines Ltd. claim to “save” Fish Lake is bogus. As to whether Tsilhqot’in people ever go to Nabas; Taseko’s own archaeologists found evidence of occupation going back 6500 years. There is an old pit house on the island in the lake and there are graves in several locations. The William family have a cabin at Little Fish Lake and graze cattle in the meadows. I have attended many events

there including a youth gathering last August and a Brittany Gathering. There was an Elder’s gathering at Onion Lake a few years ago. This area is very actively used, as it has been for many more years than there has been a Williams Lake and its Doug Wilsons. David Williams Executive Director Friends of the Nemaiah Valley

Funding announced for Williams Lake River Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Government announced an additional $771,000 of funding Tuesday for storm water upgrades that will help decrease the amount of junk going into the Williams Lake River. “We’re constructing these ponds that serve two purposes,” city engineering technician Jeff Bernardy explained. “One to slow down the storm water that comes down from the city from the streets so it’s released at a controlled rate into the river. The second thing it does is give the water time for sediments and pollutants to settle out.” The ponds also help decrease the amount of erosion to the river valley from storm water, Bernardy added. This project, with a total cost of close to $1.2 million, consists

of $1 million from the federal Gas Tax Fund, while the city will provide $170,000. “It’s an example of partnership between the federal government, provincial government and the Union of B.C. Municipalities and we’re so appreciative,” Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook said. “We certainly wouldn’t be able to move forward on phase five of the river valley storm water project without this type of funding.” In a written statement MP Dick Harris said the federal government has made infrastructure funding a priority. “Strengthening infrastructure isn’t just about roads and bridges,” Harris noted. “Storm water management is important for local residents and the health of local streams, rivers, ponds and lakes.”

Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett brought greetings from Premier Christy Clark and Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes. “I also bring personal greetings from myself and all the residents of the Cariboo Chilcotin. We all benefit from projects such as this,” Barnett said. The “jewel” of a river valley is an important part of people’s lives, with hiking trails and a diverse eco-system, Barnett added. “It’s an important fish and wildlife habitat and it’s important to all of us to preserve it, that is why I am so pleased with today’s announcement.” The gas tax funding has gone toward 1,500 projects to date, Barnett said. Quesnel Mayor Mary Sjostrom, president of UBCM, said UBCM administers the funding program.

“We’re moving into phase two with the federal government on the gas tax funding and work closely as well with provincial authorities who are part of a steering committee who looks at the applications.” Gas tax funding is crucial to small communities, Sjostrom said.

“This contribution allows us to do such projects as this one,” she said. We can’t fund everything from local taxpayers.” As if they’d come to hear the announcement, a dozen Canada Geese stood nearby along the river bank. Once the announcement was complete, they took off in flight.

Duo rides to top spots at Canadians Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer There aren’t many in the area who can lay claim to the title of Canadian High School Rodeo Finals champion. Ryan Jasper did it in bull riding in 2011 and, years back, brothers Ian Pare (bareback riding, 1999) and Rease Pare (steer wrestling, 2003), Keely Durrell (breakaway roping, 2003) and Willee Twan (team roping, 1998) achieved the same fate. This year, however, 150 Mile House’s Chad Braaten earned the accolade at the event, hosted in Nanton, Alta. from July 25-27. And, it came in what he called possibly his most unexpected event — boys’ cutting. “I hadn’t really expected to do that well, especially in the boys’ cutting,” Braaten said. “If I thought I was going to do well in anything it would have been team roping, which ended up being my worst.” Braaten, a 2013 Williams Lake secondary graduate, along with Matt Armes, a 2013 Columneetza secondary graduate, have both spent the majority of their summers competing at the biggest and most prestigious high school rodeos. Both Braaten and Armes earned their spots at the Canadian High School Rodeo Finals and the National High School Rodeo Finals in Rock Springs, WY., July 14-21 through posting consistently strong performances throughout their high school rodeo season. “We compete all season during the high school schedule,” Armes explained. “We start in September and finish in June. Every rodeo is worth points and the top 12 with the most points go to the B.C. finals, then the top four from there go to nationals and then the top six go to Canadians.” Armes qualified for Canadians and nationals in steer wrestling and bronc riding. He finished first in the regular season in bronc riding and sixth in steer wrestling; however, because two people weren’t going Armes was rolled up to fourth. Braaten, meanwhile, finished his rodeo season first in boys’ cutting, seventh in calf roping and sixth in team roping. Likewise, because some qualifiers weren’t attending, Braaten was rolled up into a qualifying position.

150 Mile House’s Chad Braaten competes during the tie down roping event at the B.C. High School Rodeo Finals in Williams Lake in June of 2012. At nationals, joining 1,800 other competitors, neither cowboy was happy with their performance. Armes, who was coming off a dislocated shoulder he sustained at the B.C. finals in June in Quesnel, failed to hang on to either of his two broncs and caught neither of his two steers. “My first steer I rode by,” Armes said. “My second steer I got down but I wasn’t in the right position, so when he stopped I just flipped over his head.” Likewise, Braaten missed his calf in the first round which put him out of the competition and was then forced out of the boys’ cutting because his horse was injured, and didn’t place in the top20 overall in team roping. “Winning it would have been over and above, but I hoped to make short-go and finish in the top 20,” Braaten said. “It didn’t happen, but oh well.” Both cowboys, however, made up for it a week later in Nanton at Canadians. To go along with Braaten’s firstplace finish in boys’ cutting, he also earned a fifth-place overall finish in calf roping. Cutting, he explained, is an event where both the horse and rider are judged on their ability to separate cows from a herd. “Basically there’s a pen of about 30 cows,” he said. “You go in and you have four helpers and they tell you which cows are good to pick. You cut a cow out, hold it there for 20 or 30 seconds, then

You gain marks if you’re really flashy and have some really nice moves on your horse.” Braaten said he plans to take a year off rodeo and focus on his education and a science degree at Williams Lake’s Thompson Rivers University campus, prior to working toward becoming a pharmacist. “I’ll amateur rodeo in the summer with my brother [Cody], and in my second year, I’m not 100 per cent sure, but I’d like to go to Alberta and college rodeo.” Armes, meanwhile, received an offer he couldn’t pass up while the duo were competing in Rock Springs, WY. at nationals. “Basically I got offered a pretty sweet college deal down to Oklahoma Panhandle State University, almost a full ride,” Armes said.

“I’m going down there to take my pre-vet and that’s the focus but I’ve got to compete to the best of my ability. “They’ve got lots of good coaches and practicing down there so my riding will definitely improve. But it’s happening pretty quick here — I leave Saturday.” Both Braaten and Armes added they’d like to thank their numerous sponsors in the community, who helped the pair afford travel costs throughout the season. Armes said he’d also like to thank his personal sponsor, Soda Creek Sweet Corn, and Braaten said he’d like to send out a special thanks to Kamloops’ Ken and June Hartley who leant him their horse when his got injured at Canadians. “I wouldn’t have got there without them,” Braaten said.

The 36th Annual Nemiah Valley Rodeo will be happening next weekend. Performances will start at 1:30 both Saturday Aug. 3 and Sunday Aug. 4. The rodeo is hosted by the Xeni Gwet’in First Nations Government and will be held at the Nemiah Valley Rodeo grounds.

The Kidney Foundation will host its annual Kidney Walk in Williams Lake Sunday, Aug. 25. The walk will start in Boitanio Park at 9 a.m. The Kidney Walk raises funds for critical programs and services for British Columbians affected by kidney disease. The Kidney Walk also helps raise awareness about the seriousness of this disease and highlights the importance of organ donation. Thousands of volunteers and participants in 20 B.C. communities participate in Kidney Walks each year. The events feature live entertainment, prizes, fundraising barbecues, silent auctions and more. Kidney disease is a serious disease that has no cure.  It is a disease that is both underrecognized and undetectable in its early stages.

The family of Jim (Elvis) Veninga, Kennedy Mack, Theresa Mack, Elske Veninga, Albert and Kathy Veninga and ‘Luka’, is pictured here at the Lakers Car Club 2013 Show and Shine with Jim’s 1967 Chevy truck, restored wheels to roof by Rick Kokesch. Not pictured are Cody Mack and Mallory Mack. The truck was entered in the show in Jim’s memory — something his family said he would have loved.

Family receives restored 1967 Chevrolet pickup LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune Vehicles in the 2013 Lakers Car Club Show and Shine have great historic significance for their past and present owners, and for visitors who come from around the province to admire them on the streets of downtown Williams Lake. One vehicle that made its debut appearance at the event this year was a 1967 Chevrolet truck belonging to Jim and Elske Veninga. The truck was restored by Rick Kokesch in 150 Mile House. The project began in 2010 when Jim (‘Elvis’) called from Horsefly to ask Rick about getting the truck restored. Rick said he went out and looked at the vehicle. “I did some pre-inspection and some sandblasting, got the engine running and inspected the body,” he said. “I told Jim what needed to happen and he said, ‘let’s do it.’” By the time Rick saw the truck he said that it was in quite

Rick Kokesch who restored the truck with Elske Veninga. a state of disrepair and it took nearly four years to complete the restoration, which he described as ‘absolute.’ “The whole truck was dismantled to the bare frame and built back up and every nut and bolt was replaced.

The only original things in the truck now are the frame and the engine,” Kokesch explained. He added that, unfortunately, Jim passed away in 2011 and did not get to see the finished project. Jim’s wife Elske Veninga, his son Albert Veninga, daughter Theresa Mack and grandson Kennedy Mack attended the car show on May 26. Elske explained that it was originally purchased as a family vehicle. “It was our first new truck. We drove it back and forth to Ontario every spring break-up with the kids on board,” she said. “It looked a lot different when we bought it — Jim would be thrilled with it if he could see it now.” She said that the truck was purchased brand new in 1967 from Norberg Motors (now Cariboo GM) in Williams Lake, adding that with a trade-in, they paid $2,200 for the truck. “It’s a bit hot-rodded, according to what Jim agreed with in the restoration process,” Kokesch continued. “He turned me loose on it. I asked

him, ‘What’s your vision?’ I sent him the paint colour scheme I thought would be great and he said, ‘Go for it: whatever you think should be done.’” The job went from a restorative paint job to a completely restored truck. “I tried so hard to get him out to my shop during the restoration process — to see the project or to take part in it, or make sure we were on the same page, but due to his physical restrictions he was never able to come to my shop. I would have loved to have him take it for a drive but it never worked out,” he continued. Elske said that Jim loved the truck and would have enjoyed having it at the show so everyone could see it. “This truck was always a nice ride and we always liked it. My mom and sisters were really heavy-duty ladies and when they got in on the passenger side I could really feel it,” she laughed. See VENINGA Page A14

COMMUNITY Harold Hartwig an avid sportsman Longtime Williams Lake resident Harold Hartwig passed away at the Williams Lake Seniors Village on July 23, 2013. He was predeceased by his wife, Patricia, in 1992. Harold was born Oct. 2, 1931, in Kuroki, Sask. to August and Emelie (Ratke) Hartwig. He was the 14th child of 10 brothers and four sisters. In 1949, he and his parents moved to Abbotsford, B.C., and shortly thereafter he left home in search of work. He worked over the years in sawmills in Vavenby and Clearwater; on the oil pipeline — Blue River to Merritt; in the mill in Canim Lake and at Black Creek for the Rosenal Brothers. He decided he wanted to be a faller and secured a job with H.J. Gardner and Sons in Horsefly. He also worked as a faller in Barkerville. After a co-worker suffered a severe injury on the job, Harold decided to make a change and moved into Williams Lake where he secured a job with B.C. Hydro, first falling trees, then as an auger truck driver and groundsman. It was in Williams Lake where he met Patricia “Pat” Burke, a registered nurse, in

1966. In 1969, he and Dick Chapell formed a partnership for the ownership of “Dick’s Towing and Auto Wrecking.” In 1971 he bought his partner out and operated the towing/auto company until he sold it in 1989. He repurchased and resold it the same year. As he had never changed the name he sometimes was called “Dick” and then by some, “Charlie.” Harold was an avid sportsman. He served term as president of the Rod and Gun Club and was voted “Sportsman of the Year.” He bowled, curled, golfed, played baseball and loved to “socialize” in general. He was always up for a laugh or a joke. Harold was a proud Williams Lake volunteer fireman for 30 years. He loved the camaraderie of his fellow fire fighers! It was here he got the nickname, “Dad.” He was a canvasser for the Cancer Society and was a supporter of the Hough Memorial Cancer Society and the Williams Lake Senior Centre. He was a jig-saw puzzler extraordinaire, and very lucky. In 1986 he won a blue Cadillac Sedan DeVille in a scratch and win Lotto. A13

Sears Hometown Opportunity Available! Sears Canada recently announced that its Williams Lake dealer is retiring and the company is actively seeking a new dealer to join its national chain. Based in Toronto, ON, Sears Hometown opened its first store over 20 years ago and now has over 250 locations across Canada. Hometown Stores carry products ranging from home appliances and mattresses to tractors and lawn mowers, as well as full catalogue service. Sears is Canada’s largest retailer of major appliances. “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rob and Maureen for their passion and 10-year commitment to Sears,” says Jane Clementino, Associate Vice-President of Recruitment with Sears Hometown. “Now someone else will have the opportunity to realize their dream of owning a business and we look forward to helping the new dealer continue to provide quality products and exceptional customer service to our Williams Lake customers.” According to Ms. Clementino, “The type of person who makes a great store dealer is someone who is committed to being involved with their community, sales and customer-focused and wants to be in business for themselves but with the help of a national company like Sears. Taking over an existing brand-name business can be a rewarding process. As one of Canada’s premier retailers, Sears knows what works and offers smart business models that allow you to do what you do best - develop and maintain relationships with both customers and the community while we take care of backend management, computer systems, advertising, marketing and inventory. This means low cost of entry for you and as part of the Sears family and our retail opportunities, you focus on the rewarding part of the business instead of trying to manage administrative tasks. It’s a win-win scenario.” If you would like to learn more about becoming a Sears Hometown dealer, contact Marianne Schuts or call 1-800698-7088 for more information.

We threw pennies in the speakers and then we bit pieces of the dashboard off,” she laughed. “It looks a lot better now. “Dad wanted this truck all ‘souped up’ like this — this was his dream,” she said. “Rick did such a great
