NO ONE INJURED IN MOTOR HOME ROLLOVER The RCMP and the Williams Lake Fire Department responded to the scene of a small motor home rollover down the steep bank below Best Buy Propane (Sun Valley Gas) on Highway 97 in Williams Lake Thursday morning, shortly before 10 a.m. “It appears the driver, owner, left the vehicle in gear when he parked,” the RCMP said in a press release. “The vehicle was completely destroyed. The dollar value is unknown.” No one was injured in the incident, however the fire department removed a battery and full propane tank that were on board, before the remnants of the motor home were towed away.

McLeese Lake wildfire person-caused A wildfire at McLeese Lake near Robertson Road, Wednesday was person-caused and is under investigation said Cariboo Fire Centre information officer Greig Bethel Thursday. “Apparently, the fire was burning in an open field and moved into standing timber,” Bethel said. “It has been re-estimated at 1.3 hectares in size, down from the 1.5.” The fire was brought under control by Cariboo Fire Centre/ Wildfire Management Branch crews with bucket support from helicopters and heavy equipment on Wednesday evening by about

8 p.m. An airtanker also actioned the fire on Wednesday afternoon. Approximately 16 WMB personnel returned to the site Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. to continue putting out hot spots. “It looks like things are moving toward mop-up at this time,” Bethel said. Helicopters and airtankers in action during Wednesday’s wildfire at McLeese Lake near Robertson Road was spotted by local resort owners. Bob Kelly photo

Weed of the Week - Mountain Bluet The feature for this week is not your everyday garden variety; it’s beautiful but can be a pest! Mountain Bluet also known as Bachelors Button and Perennial Cornflower is a popular garden plant that we have on our priority list because it is spreading in the Cariboo Chilcotin. Mountain Bluet is native to Europe and was brought over as an ornamental but it readily escapes gardens all over the world. It has now become established in the British Isles, Scandinavia and some parts of North America. Mountain Bluet grows up to 18 inches tall, has silvery-green wooly foliage and has blue and purple lace-like flowers at the ends of the stems. It usually flowers from May to August. How can this beauty become a garden nightmare you ask? Mountain Bluet has many invasive plant traits; it is a self-seeder and also spreads rapidly by above

ground roots. This plant is tolerant to many different environments such as drought and alkaline soils. It is persistent once it has established and one plant can live up to 15 years in ideal conditions. Treatment options for Mountain Bluet: Small Infestations: Hand pulling but make sure that all parts of the plants are dug up including root fragments. Do Not Compost Invasive Plants! Bag them and dispose of invasive plant material at designated areas such as invasive plant bins at the Williams Lake, Quesnel, and 100 Mile House landfills. Large Infestations: Herbicide can be utilized, but the infestation must be carefully assessed first to ensure herbicide use is appropriate for the site and all instructions on the label must be read and followed.

NEWS You Can’t Eat the View

Growing up on a ranch was wonderful; wide open spaces, horseback riding, and the intoxicating smell of freshly cut hay on a summer afternoon. Those are the things I remember most. Of course, farming also meant isolation, sick animals and the nauseating sight of a crop ruined by hail, rain or drought.   Farming can be a cruel occupation. This year we’ve had so much rain the hay fields around us have grown thick and lush. Some are saying it’s the best crop of hay they’ve seen in 26 years. There’s just one problem…it won’t stop raining long enough to cut, dry and bale it. The hay that is getting put up is mostly what the locals refer to as “well washed”. Sometimes having a sense of humour is the

only thing that keeps a farmer sane. Once the hay has been cut it has to come off the field, so even when it has been washed so often it’s black, you still have to bale it. There are few sights more heartbreaking than a farmer spending time, fuel and twine putting up black bales of hay destined for burning. There is still plenty of hay standing, but now, even if it did stop raining, the hay is getting past its prime. Once the grasses and legumes start going to seed much of the nutritional value is lost. With such a narrow window to work with it’s a wonder any good hay ever gets put up at all, but— against all odds—it does. There are years when the fields are speckled with bright green bundles. Years where the hay makes it off the field, stacked


and stored in its prime without a drop of rain. Of course, those are the years everyone has lots of good hay so the price drops. Such are the economics of farming. Hence the joke my father loved to tell about the farmer who wins the lottery. When he is asked what he plans to do with all his money he enthusiastically replies, “I am going to farm until it’s all gone.” In the thick of the farming years my mother would often lament that farming was

the only occupation where you worked all year to bring a product to market and then asked what they would give you for it, instead of demanding a profitable price. Then there’s the old adage that once in your life you will need a lawyer, a doctor, a policeman and a preacher, but every day, three times a day, you need a farmer. Even without the weather and crop prices to contend with farming is becoming more difficult economically. The size and scope of machinery has pushed the smaller farmer out, while the price of land makes it impossible for a young person to get into farming unless they’re lucky enough to have inherited land. On the long weekend we took a drive up into a ritzy subdivision overlooking Fort St. John. In the

midst of the million dollar homes was a hay field and an old tractor making its familiar rounds. We fell quiet as we watched the hay fall into neat swaths behind the tractor. We looked beyond the field to the breathtaking view of the Peace River banks and the city below. The bales might go to feed cattle that will sell for a few hundred dollars a head. Or the bales might get sold for thirty bucks a piece. Or if it rains, they will make nothing but ashes. Scarcely a mile away four acre lots with a far lesser view are selling for almost a quarter million each. I doubted this private pocket of pasture l a n d — s u r ro u n d e d as it were by massive homes already on subdivided acreages—was protected by the ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve). And even if

In England, more and more people are successfully quitting smoking. The National Health Services Stop Smoking program in 2011-12 reported that 800,000 people set a quit date with 49% being successful which is a 5% increase in success from 2010-11 and a whopping 235% increase over 2001-02. It can be done. Pharmacists can help smokers quit with smoking cessation programs. We’d love to talk to you about what’s available to help you with your decision to stop.

it were someone with deep pockets would pay a few million to own it. Maybe the farmer was one such person. Maybe he was simply a millionaire living the green acre dream on the weekend. Or maybe his family had always farmed here and he was holding out like that family who used to raise strawberries in a field next to Disneyland. Maybe he was wise and understood money wasn’t everything; that being cash strapped from time to time was worth getting to spend his days outdoors circling a field with a view. If you’re a small farmer or someone who dreams of spending their days working the land, all is not lost. After decades of hearing how the family farm is going extinct there are rumbles of it making a come- A3

back. With the growing interest in organic, ethically raised food there is a niche market for those who are willing to work for it. Some are even becoming urban farmers and leasing neighbours backyards to grow enough produce to sell at Farmer’s Markets. If it’s livestock you’re interested in, I just finished reading a wonderful book called Gaining Ground; A Story of Farmers’ Markets, Local Food and Saving the Family Farm by Forrest Pritchard that serves as a ray of light in a cloudy world.

Beginning in September 2013, the Provincial Awards Program will be revised to provide school districts with greater flexibility and better align with the BC Education Plan. The revisions will phase out the Passport to Education over the next three years. “This change coincides with our ongoing development of district/authority awards, where students will have more areas to qualify for postsecondary awards and scholarships,” the Ministry of Education noted in a press release. These areas will better align with the goals of the BC Education Plan and allow more students to be recognized for their unique interests like trades, Aboriginal languages, volunteer activity or technology education. Within these broad categories, districts will have greater discretion to locally manage allo-

cations, tailoring their decisions to the unique demographics of their community. The Passport to Education Program will be phased out starting with Grade 10 in 2013, Grade 11 in 2014 and Grade 12 in 2015. Students who have already earned Passports to Education in their

Smart meter class action lawsuit off to slow start Opponents of BC Hydro’s wireless smart meters are scrambling to quickly assemble enough people willing to be part of a planned class-action lawsuit they hope delivers a permanent opt-out from the program. Victoria resident Sharon Noble, with the group Citizens for Safe Technology, said success in convincing a judge to certify the class action may hinge on how many people take part. She estimated Wednesday that 100 to 150 people are registered – a start she called slow – but added hundreds more sign-ups are likely in progress. Given the number of people who have blocked smart meter installation or had one installed against their wishes, she said,

it would be surprising if thousands don’t join the lawsuit. “The courts would be very influenced by having a large number,” Noble said, adding a judge could soon begin considering whether to certify the class action. “The more people we have signed on by then, the more likely the courts would look on this as being a very significant movement, as opposed to a movement of a handful.” About 60,000 households have refused smart meters or less than four per cent of all BC Hydro customers. BC Hydro has not yet issued its response to the claim filed July 25 on behalf of representative plaintiff Nomi Davis. It demands free choice “without extortive fees, coercion or conditions designed to intimidate.” Registering with the

lawsuit costs $100. The provincial government has indicated those who still have analog power meters they want to keep will be able to pay around $20 a month extra to continue manual meter readings. Opponents aren’t happy with the fees or Hydro indications that smart meters may still replace analog ones as they break down. They also say those with smart meters should have the ability to turn off wireless transmissions. “The opt-out option that Hydro is offering needs to be a legitimate one,” White Rock resident Linda Ewart said. “What they need to say is ‘If you don’t want one of these meters, you don’t need to have them.’” Another concern over choice is what happens when someone moves to a new home

and a smart meter is already installed. Many objectors claim health concerns or sensitivity to radiofrequency waves, even though third-party tests have found emissions from smart meters are low compared to other sources. BC Hydro officials say the lead plaintiff’s analog meter was broken and had to be replaced for safety reasons. “BC Hydro will work through the judi-

cial process to explain why we are obligated to replace a customer’s meter when there is potential for a safety hazard,” said Greg Reimer, executive vice-president of transmission and distribution, in a statement. He said both the B.C. Court of Appeal and B.C. Utilities Commission have previously dismissed smart meter legal challenges and that Hydro has “acted at all times within the law.”

Alkali Lake requests confidentiality at hearings STAFF WRITER When the federal review panel hearings take place at Alkali Lake on Tuesday, Aug. 20, the Esk’etemc (Alkali Lake) would like some of the information it presents kept confidential. The federal review panel for the New Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine announced Thursday it has received a request from the Esk’etemc to present oral and/or written evidence in confidence during the upcoming community hearing session respecting Esk’etemc’s

treaty settlement and land (“TSL”) selections and concerns respecting adverse impacts to title and TSL and Esk’etemc’s specific claims area and traditional use knowledge and information respecting the location and nature of Esk’etemc’s sacred sites and burial grounds. To maintain the confidentiality of the information, Esk’etemc has also asked the panel not to publicly post the information on the panel’s registry, and that only Secwepemc members and specific Taseko Mines Ltd. repre-

sentatives who have signed a confidentiality undertaking be allowed to attend when that information is presented to the panel. In addition, Esk’etemc requested the presentation of information be closed to the general public and interested parties, and be held in-camera and not reproduced in the audio or written transcripts posted on the public registry, and that the panel avoid site-specific reference to the areas identified by Esk’etemc in the panel’s report to the minister.

2.4 of the Procedures for Requesting Confidentiality, the panel is making the Esk’etemc request for confidentiality available for a short comment period. Interested Parties are requested to provide any comments on the request for confidentiality by Aug. 18 at 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time). Any comments should be submitted via email at: Newprosperityreview@ The panel will then afford Esk’etemc the opportunity to respond to comments submitted. The Esk’etemc

response to comments should be provided on Aug. 19. After reviewing the comments received, the panel will determine whether the disclosure of the information could potentially result in harm to either the environment or to the Esk’etemc. The panel’s decision on whether to grant the request will be announced at the start of the Aug. 20th hearing day in Alkali Lake. During the panel hearings in Xeni Gwet’in last week, a similar request was granted by the panel.

Find a Church... ...Sponsored by the Williams Lake Minister’s Fellowship

“I’ve got nothing against Jesus. It’s just his fan club I can’t stand.” I remember having a good chuckle the first time I read those words on a bumper sticker. As a pastor, I should have been offended by someone taking an obvious shot at the church, but the truth is, I can relate. I mean, really! Who has seen the ugly side of church more than one of its leaders? God’s fan club can indeed be a rowdy bunch! But as many knocks and bruises as I’ve endured from God’s fellow “fans”, I’m not pulling away from the church, nor do I ever plan to. The reason? Well, I could say a lot of things here. I could say that my own experience has been that the amazingly loving and gracious fans by far outnumber the petty and hurtful ones. But the real reason is that Jesus didn’t just call people to follow him; he called them to follow him together. Tragically, there are a lot of people who have bought into the idea that they can live as solo trekkers on the pathway to God. They miss the fact that Jesus never endorsed that approach. One can’t read about him and his way of doing things without coming to the conclusion that he always called people to come together. From the earliest days Jesus’ followers have understood that although the life of a Christian is very much an individual choice, it is not an individual pursuit. I read an insightful author who pointed out that people who say they want Jesus, but not the church, usually tell her that they want to identify directly with the primary source, Jesus, but not with “the annoyingly fallible human beings who have tried to follow Him but failed.” “They describe to me a personal


BY Chris harder privatized journey free of the sins of the historical Church but with a direct hook-up to the guy who got it all started. What all of this implies, however, is that the person who loves Jesus privately is somehow better at it than those who try to do it with other people.” (Lillian Daniel, Relevant Magazine) The thing that might make me reluctant to identify with other followers of Jesus is part of the very reason that I need to identify with them: our shared tendency to get things wrong. I can stand back and criticize others from a distance, but when I do that I fail to look critically at my own heart. A quick gut-check will tell me that I’m just as prone to mistakes as the people I’m criticizing. How can I think

that I, alone, will be able to navigate the spiritual path? Jesus alone is able to say, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” The rest of us need to keep our eyes on him if we’re going to stay on the path, and the truth is that I’ve been kept out of the ditch plenty of times by my fellow travellers giving me a tug on the sleeve when I got distracted. But, to quote Daniels again, “In a culture of narcissism, the easiest way to follow Jesus is from a distance on a solo stroll to the beat of the same drummer you have listened to your whole life: your own personal preferences and already held beliefs.” All of this is why I stay with the church. I believe that it’s God’s plan for my good and for the good of many. Historically, the church has taken different forms, from tiny house-church gatherings to stadiumsized mega-churches, and I won’t speak against any one of them because they can all be really healthy expressions. And they can all be incredibly flawed. Health happens when people do what church is for: helping each other worship, supporting one another in spiritual growth, and pursuing a mission far bigger than themselves. Flaws manifest themselves when people put their own agendas, preferences, and biases ahead of God and lose track of what they’re there for – whether it’s a house church or a mega-church. The great thing is that God is still incredibly at work drawing flawed people into a relationship with himself. That’s what gives me hope – because I’m one of those flawed followers.

THANK YOU Mount Polley Mine

Fraser sockeye run, water level low TOM FLETCHER Black Press Commercial and sport sockeye fishing remained closed on the Fraser River system last week, as the Pacific Salmon Commission reported a lower than expected return of fish in what was already expected to be a poor return year. Based on the latest test fisheries, the commission’s Fraser River Panel upgraded its forecast of early summer-run sockeye from 400,000 to 452,000 fish. The following summer run “is either lower than forecast or their migration timing is much later than expected,” the joint Canada-U.S. panel reported last week. The proportion of late-run sockeye through ocean approach areas has increased in recent days. The late run is expected to be dominated by Birkinhead, Weaver and Late Shuswap sockeye, with some from the Portage and Cultus Lake systems. Water level and temperature in the Fraser system is another concern, after a dry early summer. As of Aug. 5, Fraser River water discharge at Hope was 26 per cent lower than average for that date. The temperature was 20.5

degrees, 2.8 degrees higher than average, a condition that would risk high prespawning death if it continues. The 2013 run is the next in the four-year sockeye life cycle after the disastrous 2009 run, which was expected to see 10 million return. After only one million came back, the

federal government appointed Justice Bruce Cohen to head a commission of inquiry on the state of Fraser sockeye. As the inquiry was hearing testimony, the 2010 run came in at an unusually high 35 million fish, reflecting the complexity of the system that sustains Pacific salmon.

REALTOR TIPS Redecorating ideas on a small budget

The Cohen commission found overall declines in most west coast rivers starting in the late 1980s, from

Washington state to the Fraser, Skeena and Nass in B.C., Yukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek River.

• Rearrange furniture and paint can dramatically change the look of a room.

• Add new paint to coffee or end tables can freshen up a room, and try rearranging furniture in a curve rather than at right angles, this appears more inviting. Rearrange your wall art as well by creating unique groupings of different size frames, or for a sleek look create a row of identically sized and framed pieces of art.

for the generous donation of $10,000 towards the construction of our rescue station. We are planning to have the building next to the community hall in Likely.

Another round of liquor reforms The B.C. Liberal government is ordering up another round of liquor regulation changes, looking for ways to make life easier for businesses and customers without aggravating the health and social problems associated with alcohol. Discussions with B.C.’s 10,000 liquor licence holders have identified a few problems that should be fixed. Going into a consultation phase that runs to October, the government is looking for answers to a few obvious questions, such as why it takes a pub or bar up to a year to get a licence. Another question: why can a family with underaged children go into a licensed restaurant for lunch, but can’t go to a pub and place the exact same food and drink order? This should be allowed, perhaps until the traditional 5 p.m. “happy hour” when the pub reverts to adults-only. A couple of suggestions have come out of the healthy growth of B.C. wine, craft beer and distillery operations. Look for new licence opportunities for farmers’ markets to sell local beverages along with the produce and preserves. Letters inviting suggestions from existing licence holders have gone out, and Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap will be meeting this fall with industry groups, local governments, police, health and social policy organizations and First Nations in the fall. A website will be put up in September so members of the public can have their say. Here’s my suggestion to start things off. Recent incidents in-


volving so-called “party buses” shone a light on this growing industry, The sudden death of a 16-year-old on a party bus outing in Surrey in

February turned out not to be alcohol-related, but to no one’s surprise, open liquor was found aboard the bus. Open liquor isn’t allowed in any vehicle, but perhaps a new kind of special event licence could be created for party buses. They have been viewed mainly as part of the solution to impaired driving, and the situation isn’t much different from a supervised event on a boat. Here’s another suggestion. Gourmet cooking classes are becoming popular, with customers preparing and then enjoying their meals. Why not

licence these establishments, at least so people can bring their own wine for dinner? Both the B.C. Liberals and NDP have advocated for easing the archaic rules on inter-provincial trade in wine. B.C. lifted its restrictions on mailorder wine and has urged other provinces to follow suit. There are a couple of reasons why this Prohibition-era structure persists. Liquor sales are a cash cow for provincial governments, and every case of wine brought in from elsewhere is lost profit for the provincial wholesale monopoly.

Then there is the local industry lobby that would rather not add to its competition. Premier Christy Clark pressed this point at the recent premiers’ meeting in Ontario wine country, bringing in the maximum amount of B.C. wine allowed under Ontario rules and urging free trade in Canadian wine. The Toronto media drank it up, aghast that they were barred from ordering the latest Naramata Bench tipples directly. No movement so far from the Ontario government, in a province that has done well developing its own wine industry.

The B.C. government will no doubt be lobbied again to allow beer and wine sales in grocery and convenience stores. Our politicians show little interest in that, which is understandable. The B.C. Liberals don’t want to upset the private liquor stores they have nurtured for a decade, and the NDP would never risk annoying the government liquor store union. There are more creative ways to liberalize alcohol sales. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Film festival ends Saturday The “First Annual Moonrise Film Festival” is being held Aug. 15 - 17, at the Sunset Theatre in Wells, B.C. The festival focuses on Western Canadian filmmakers, both established and emerging, with specific focus on filmmakers from the Cariboo Region.

After reaching out to film communities in B.C., Alberta, and The Northwest Territories, the festival received over 70 submissions from over 40 filmmakers. After this, they narrowed down their selection to 30 short film spots, including films that are narrative, documentary,

experimental, and animation. Most of these films will be projected digitally, but some will be projected on 16mm! The goal in the programming was to create three evenings that were both potent and eclectic. About half of the independent selected films in the festival have had

extensive festival play in places such as the Montreal World Film Festival, TIFF, Whistler, and more. Some of these films have even gone on to win Leo nominations and awards. But among these films, they were also sure to accept unique works that have so far not had festival

play. In the programming they will be sure to highlight these as Moonrise premieres! Also booked are short and feature length films from acclaimed filmmakers, Don Hertzfeldt, Wendy Tilby, Amanda Forbis, Gary Burns, and even CBC’s own Jim Brown!

Pool’s next steps The Central Cariboo Joint Committee, comprised of the city of Williams Lake Council and the Cariboo Regional District Directors from Electoral Areas D, E and F, have agreed to establish a finance committee for the major renovations and expansion of the Sam Ketcham Pool. The committee will determine funding sources and strategies; and provide recommendations to the Joint Committee as the project moves forward. Establishing a finance committee, made of members of Williams Lake City Council and CRD Directors, was a key recommendation from the Williams Lake and District Pool Feasibility study. “Establishment of

this committee will allow elected officials and staff to source appropriate opportunities and funding channels for this project,” said Central Cariboo Joint Committee Co-Chair, Mayor Kerry Cook. “We will partner with senior levels of government to ensure this project moves forward, and in a cost-efficient manner for our taxpayers.” The results of the finance committee’s work will provide specific information and options to proceed to additional detailed public consultation, and the eventual referendum process to borrow funds for the renovations and reconstruction. “The pool feasibility study was conducted as a thorough and

inclusive community engagement process, which will be carried forward in the next phases of this project,” said Central Cariboo Joint Committee CoChair, Director Joan Sorley. “The committee members are dedicated to this project, and will keep residents apprised of its progress through a comprehensive communications process from start to finish.” The committee will review options for a preferred date of the referendum and the feasibility of funding sources. Regular status updates as a standing item on the Joint Committee agenda will provide a consistent communications process and a report from the Finance Committee will be due in four months.

Parks Canada continues search for lost Franklin ships The Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Canada’s Environment Minister and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, announced Aug. 9 that Parks Canada underwater archaeologists will return to Canada’s Arctic to continue an expedition of international significance; the continuing search for the lost vessels HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, from the ill-fated Sir John Franklin voyage. “Our government is pleased to pull together for a fifth season both existing and new Canadian partners and researchers to continue the search for HMS Erebus and HMS Terror,” said Minister Aglukkaq. “Being from Nunavut, I am especially excited about this project, as it will collectively increase our understanding of early Arctic exploration and its impact on Canada’s development as a nation, while showcasing the beauty and unique culture of the Arctic.” The search capacity this year will be the most comprehensive yet. Beginning around August 10th and continuing for almost 6 weeks — the longest amount of continuous time on the water to date — Parks Canada will be joined by a broad array of partners for a fifth season in search for the historic shipwrecks. This year, the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Defence Research & Development Canada (DRDC) will lend their expertise and enthusiasm to the project, which also includes the Arctic Research Foundation, the Government of Nunavut, Canadian Hydrographic Service, Canadian Coast Guard, the Canadian Ice Service, and Canadian Space Agency. The Parks Canada-

led survey team will conduct the underwater search from aboard the Arctic Research Foundation’s Research Vessel Martin Bergmann for the full 6 weeks or so, and will be further supported during that time by the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Sir Wilfrid Laurier for an additional week. The team’s traditional side-scan sonar surveying method will be boosted this year with the addition of a military-grade, side-scan sonar provided by DRDC, and by a new autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and remotely-operated vehicle (ROV), recently acquired by Parks Canada. As with all past surveys, the data acquired will be shared among partnering organizations, which contributes to important priorities like safe navigation and environmental knowledge of the Canadian Arctic. “I am proud of the

incredible commitment, research capability and momentum this team continues to harness from so many valuable partners each year,” added Minister Aglukkaq. “Having already covered more than 800 km squared, the team is narrowing their search on the world’s most elusive shipwrecks, while systematically surveying Canada’s vast and largely uncharted Arctic waters. Weather permitting, this year’s search will significantly build upon the important scientific and archaeological understanding in this fascinating part of Canada’s history,

and geography.” Canada’s Arctic has a rich, diverse history related to the Arctic exploration of Canada, the enduring quest to discover the Northwest Passage and the significant roles in the history of Inuit-European relations in this vast territory. The search for the Franklin vessels offers a unique opportunity to celebrate the nationally significant places, persons and events that make up the rich tapestry of our country’s Arctic heritage.

An unusual feature of this three-bedroom family home is a bonus room located over the double garage and neatly separated from the main living areas, making it an ideal spot for a studio, play area or quiet hide-away. Linked to the garage by a space that contains the laundry room, coat storage and a lavatory, the main house features a gracious covered porch across the front.  Double front doors open into a roomy foyer with a convenient coat cupboard. To the right is a den, and straight ahead is the great room. Open to the kitchen and an eating nook, the great room boasts a corner fireplace, as well as access to a covered patio that overlooks the back garden. A partial double-height ceiling adds drama in the great room, eating nook and dining area.  The kitchen is separated from the nook by a raised eating bar, so the cook will never feel isolated. The U-shaped counter configuration will save steps.  Next to the kitchen is a formal dining area, with a built-out buffet and an extra-deep sill on the window that overlooks the covered front porch.  On the opposite side of the home is the master suite, with a window, fitted with a cozy seat that looks onto the back garden. The partial double-height ceiling lends this room an airy spacious feeling. A large walk-in closet and an en-suite with double basins and a soaker tub, as well as a linen cupboard, complete the amenities.  On the second floor of the main house, reached via a

August 27, 1941 – August 8, 2013

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. ~ Eskimo Legend The family of Jessie Edna Jean Bellerose (nee Haynes) sadly announce her peaceful passing on August 8, 2013, at Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital, with her loving family and friends at her side. Jessie was born in Toronto, Ontario. Although Jessie is gone, her spirit live on in our hearts and memories through husband Frank Bellerose, sons David Rowntree, Bryan Rowntree, James Rowntree, Timothy Rowntree (Tina), Travis Bellerose (Jolene), Randell Bellerose (Crystal), Franklin Bellerose (Destiny), and eight grandchildren. She will be together again with her son Stuart Weedon. The family of Jessie Bellerose wish to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Fedor in Williams Lake, Dr. Hansen in Kamloops, as well as all the wonderful nurses in Williams Lake and Kamloops. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday August 24, 2013 at 11am at The Elks Hall, 98 First Avenue South in Williams Lake, BC. Jessie, you will be greatly missed by all who knew you! You will always and forever be in our hearts and memories.
