Advisor and Tribune papers unite You asked for it and we’re delivering. Black Press-owned newspapers the Williams Lake Tribune, the Cariboo Advisor and the Tribune Weekend, will be amalgamated beginning Sept. 4 to offer two completely free newspapers to more than 10,500 homes throughout the region. This will include a Wednesday Williams Lake Tribune edition and a Friday Weekend Advisor edition — both filled with the award-winning content that has made the Tribune the community paper of record for more than 75

years. Tribune publisher Lisa Bowering said she’s thrilled to be able to offer two fresh newspapers at a broader reach. “I am so excited with the amalgamation of our three great papers,” Bowering said. “We want to give our community the absolute best newspaper we can with the broadest reach. That is why this amalgamation of the Tribune, its weekend edition and the Cariboo Advisor is such exciting news.” “These changes will allow us to continue with an amazing editorial team that has the depth and

experience to bring our community the complete story every time — whether it be hard news, business, sports or coverage of a community event.” The Tribune’s website, www., also no longer requires a subscription to access and will be updated with stories and current events on a daily basis. This includes our Facebook and Twitter pages. “With our broader reach of more than 10,500 copies partnered with the free website with full page views and complete eeditions of the paper you will al-

ways have access to the breaking news you want,” she said. The first edition of the Williams Lake Tribune Wednesday edition will hit the streets Sept. 4, followed by the first Friday Advisor Sept. 6. Bowering thanked the Tribune’s valued subscribers and said they will be refunded by mail the current unused portion of their subscriptions. Next week’s Tuesday and Thursday editions of the Tribune and Friday’s Tribune Weekend will be delivered to subscribers as usual.

Zoning amendment long overdue: realtor Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

PM 0040785583

Williams Lake realtor Henry van Soest said it’s about time a city lot on Proctor Street is turned back into residential property. “This place has been in existence as a residential property since day one, since I think about 1959,” van Soest said.

When the city incorporated areas that were taken out of the regional district, they were put into municipal boundaries and there was a change to their zoning. “There was very little understanding of it and people in the circumstances afterwards paid commercial taxes for all these years, which is a real shame,” van Soest told the Tribune. At Tuesday’s regular council

meeting city council passed a zoning amendment bylaw and an official community plan amendment bylaw to change the property zoning at 907 Proctor Street from Mixed Use to Residential Single Family. During the public hearing before the bylaw was passed, van Soest told council the lot on Proctor Street has been owned by the same family since the

1950s and they have been paying “excessive” commercial taxes ever since the property was incorporated into the city. “So they’ve paid their dues and supported the community through commercial taxation all the while being strictly a residential property. See CHANGES Page A2

Children beginning Kindergarten must be five years of age by December 31, 2013. Children enrolled in Kindergarten for the 2012-13 school year do not need to re-register for Grade 1 if they are attending the same school. A birth certificate or proof of age and presentation of the B.C. “Care Card” is required for registration. Students are to register at the school in their catchment area. Parents not sure of their catchment area may contact their nearest elementary school for information or consult (click on “Find the School Nearest You” and enter your address). Parents wishing to register their children at Cataline Elementary School for the balanced calendar should contact the school directly. The French Immersion Program is located at Nesika Elementary School.

Changes welcome Continued From Page A1 “There’s a substantial down payment, upwards of 35 per cent required to purchase this property and a substantially higher interest rate.” Van Soest said Friday there are other lots within the city in the same predicament and he anticipates more rezoning applications will be coming forward. “There’s one in Glendale, one next to the one I represented at 907 Proctor, and up on Mayfield there are two trailers I know the owner will want to deal with.” Council also approved a zoning amendment bylaw for the property at 2008 Second Ave. North, changing it to Single Family Residential 2. The change will allow

the owner to replace a legal non-conforming manufactured home. During the public hearing Elke Reiner, who owns property in the vicinity, said it is always positive to see an upgrade and legalization of properties. “When Glendale was incorporated into the city, a lot of what should have been done in regards to zoning

was not done. The bylaws weren’t matched in accordance, so in this case it is my husband’s and my belief to legalize this property which has been situated there for at least 35 years would be very very positive.” The only conditions the Reiners have is because the property is part of a parcel, that all building codes will be

enforced. Property owner Kathleen Wittenberg told council she was shocked to find out they couldn’t replace the manufactured home. “We’ve been there for 20 years and only found out when we phoned to see how far we were allowed to move from the lot,” she said. “I’m hoping that everything will go OK.”

Children’s author inspires parents to read with their children LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune The Williams Lake community is invited to a unique, free presentation by renowned children’s book author and speaker David Bouchard, who is sought world-wide for his passion for literacy. The presentation is the result of a partnership between the Cariboo Chilcotin Metis Association and a team of teachers from School District 27. The teachers, Tammi Varney, Lori Kelly, Tanis Stewart, Tracy Walton and Frances Bisaro began planning summer institutes in Williams Lake for teachers to attend and receive professional development training. Last year they held a very successful conference attended by more than 100 educators. Bouchard, a former teacher and school principal has written more than 50 books in English and in French. Many of them combine poetry, prose and visual arts, and explore topics such as the environment, history and the traditions and cultures of Canada’s Aboriginal

communities. In April 2009, Bouchard was named a Member of the Order of Canada “for his contributions as an author of children’s books and an advocate who has championed the cause of reading and writing, and who has shared his pride as a member of the Métis community through his stories.” With funding from Success by 6 in Williams Lake, the team of teachers and the Metis Association have purchased copies of Bouchard’s books to give to parents and families at the event. “It is our goal to have more families come out of this evening committed and better prepared to read at home daily to and with their child,” they said. “Ideally, this information will also transfer to families with preschool children so that this begins well before children come to school.” Bisaro said that the books are beautiful and have universal appeal. “He writes with lovely, almost rhythmic language and has linked with some great illustrators,” Bisaro ex-

plained. “He epitomizes multiculturalism,” Tanis Stewart added. “He’s from a varied background like some of us are, and like some of the children we teach are — that’s what I like about him.” Bouchard told the Tribune this week that you can’t start too early with books and babies. “We started reading Harry Potter to our daughter, Victoria, when she was two years old — reading to your kids develops your skill and confidence as parents,” Bouchard said. “Given one single choice, I’d have everyone in Williams Lake in the same room to learn what you can expect from teachers and from parents. They both have a responsibility and you can call them on it,” he said. “We need them both.” He said that every single parent, teacher and administrator should know what it takes to be a reader, stating that reading is as natural as talking and breathing. A teacher and administrator for 30 years, Bouchard said he believes that kids read-

School District 27 teachers Frances Bisaro, Tanis Stewart and Lori Kelly, CaribooChilcotin Metis Association support worker Dawna Short and CCMA president Laura Lee Marshall and SD 27 teacher Tracy Walton have partnered to bring renowned Metis author and speaker David Bouchard to Williams Lake for a free presentation for parents. His children’s books will be presented free to participants, thanks to funding from Success by 6 in Williams Lake. The free presentation is set for Monday, Aug. 26 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Commons at Lake City Secondary School, Carson Campus (formerly Williams Lake Secondary School). ing is the key to success in and out of school. “We should teach kids based on things like their physical abilities and their artistic accomplishments, but we teach reading and they have to adapt, or fail,” he explained. “We teach kids who can read. From coast to coast education is focused on reading. I wish that were different, but it isn’t. “Barack Obama is black, and if you’d

said 20 years ago that the U.S. would have a black president I’d have said you were crazy. The Berlin wall is gone, and 50 years ago, who would have believed it would happen? Never say never,” Bouchard continued. “It may just be possible that our education system will become sensitive enough so that every child can succeed.” He explained that when children who already have vulner-

abilities start school, not reading or being ‘reading-ready’ only compounds their problems and makes them feel “less than.” “Maya Angelou said that ‘People who know better, do better,’ and I apply that to teachers, parents and administrators — we all love our kids. And our children aren’t lazy — they want the best for themselves,” Bouchard said. “We all want that. ‘Give me the goods and

I’ll do better.’ That’s one thing I want people to take away from this presentation in Williams Lake. We want to send you home with a little fire and a lot of knowledge.” The free presentation for parents will take place on Monday, Aug. 26 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Commons at Lake City Secondary School, Carson Campus (formerly Williams Lake Secondary School).

Cariboo Fire Centre campfire ban no longer in effect The current campfire ban in the Cariboo Fire Centre was rescinded Aug. 20 at noon due to a decreased risk of wildfires, said CFC fire information officer Greig Bethel. Campfires will now be permitted throughout the Cariboo Fire Centre. “The public is reminded that campfires cannot be larger than a half-metre high

by a half-metre wide,” he said. “Anyone who lights a campfire must have a hand tool (such as a shovel) or at least eight litres of water available to fully extinguish it. Never leave a campfire unattended and make sure that the ashes are completely cold to the touch before leaving the area.” Fireworks, tiki torches and sky lanterns will

also be permitted, as well as burning barrels that are smaller than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide. All other open burning remains prohibited within the Cariboo Fire Centre. This includes: the burning of any material larger than a halfmetre-high by a halfmetre wide; and the burning of industrial or

backyard waste, slash, stubble or grass. Anyone found in violation of open-burning prohibition may be issued a ticket of up to $345 or, if convicted in court, be fined up to $100,000 and sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes a wildfire, the person may be subject to a penalty of up to $10,000 and ordered to

pay all firefighting and associated costs. The Cariboo Fire Centre stretches from Loon Lake near Clinton, north to the Cottonwood River near Quesnel, east to Wells Gray Provincial Park and west to Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park. 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 fire departments. Please check with local governments for any other restrictions before lighting a fire. The open-burning prohibition will remain in place until Sept. 30, 2013 or until the public is informed otherwise.

To report a wildfire, unattended campfire or non-compliant open burning, call 1-800-6635555 toll-free or dial *5555 on a cellphone. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, visit the Wildfire Management Branch website at www.

Ministry insists staffing a priority for nurses Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Responding to comments made by B.C. Nurses Union president Debra McPherson during a tour of Williams Lake last week, the Ministry of Health told the Tribune even in tough economic times, the B.C. government is honouring its commitment to protect health care. “The Ministry of Health funding will increase by $374 million in 2013-14 to $16.6 billion — an increase of 2.3 per cent for Ministry of Health funding,” the Ministry of Health noted in an e-mail response. “Within three years, the budget will see Ministry of Health spending increase by $1.2 billion up to $17.4 billion by 2015-16 — this translates into a 7.6 per cent increase over three years. In this year’s budget, we are protecting and maintaining health authority funding, while also ensuring the health services British Columbians rely on are maintained.” It’s a budget that continues a trend of slowing the rate of growth in health care spending, the ministry argued. “Before the worldwide economic crisis, health care

funding was growing by about seven per cent a year — in our last budget growth was down to around three per cent, and in Budget 2013 it will be at 2.6 per cent.” While McPherson said nurses are “terrified” the lower budget increases will result in layoffs and more work, the Ministry insisted it is a priority of the ministry and health authorities that the province’s health human resources are deployed as effectively and efficiently as possible. “The two-year labour agreement with the Nurses Bargaining Association, announced in October 2012, specifically targeted nurse workload and improvements to patient care and included an increase in the work hours from 36 to 37.5 hours per week,” the ministry said. “With the increase in work week hours of nurses, there is an increase in capacity across the health system and, as a result, fewer part time workers may be required in certain areas. Transitioning to a 37.5 hour work week will also help authorities reduce the more expensive overtime hours.” The agreement also includes the addition

of 2,125 nurses over the next four years in recognition of projected increases in patient care demand and in support of the continued management of nurses’ workload. “We are committed to that increase in nurses – it should be noted we are less than a year into the four-year term of that increase.” Responding to McPherson’s call on the government to create incentives for nurses to work in communities where there are nursing shortages, the Ministry said since 2001, more

than $200 million has been invested through the BC Nursing Strategy to educate, recruit and retain nurses. “Our government s u p p o r t s undergraduate and new graduating nurses to better integrate in the health system, and all health authorities have strategies to support new graduates as they enter the workplace,” the Ministry noted. “Through the nurse education bursary over 6,500 nursing students have received more than $20.4 million in

education funding since 2001. Since 2001, over $9.1 million in B.C. student loans forgiveness has been provided for nursing graduates working in rural, remote and other high-demand areas.”

The dirt on organic produce

Bringing New Prosperity to the Cariboo


remember seeing my very first cherry tree the first summer I lived in Kelowna. It was an such an amazing sight that my eyes actually welled up with tears! You see, cherries just happen to be on my top five list of favourite fruits. I was even more amazed to learn that many Okanagan residents who own fruit trees do not harvest all the fruit. I thought about how much food goes to waste in the Okanagan — hundred of thousands of pounds. This is very unfortunate considering there are so many people who do not have enough food to eat. In the winter of 2011, a few other volunteers and I decided it was time to start a gleaning project. Gleaning is when people gather together to harvest fruits and vegetables and then donate the food to organizations that serve people in need, like the food bank. After six months of planning and hard work, the Central Okanagan Fruit Tree Project (http:// was born. In our first season, we picked and donated over 5,000 pounds of produce to 15 different organizations. Together our volunteers picked cherries, apricots, plums, grapes, apples, and even tomatoes! It is incredible how the community has embraced the Fruit Tree Project. This year, we are on target to double the amount of fruit donated. We have also partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), whose participants come out with us to pick fruit. The participants love the opportunity to go out on a fruit picking adventure and take fruit home with them. The Fruit Tree Project and other gleaning projects are important additions to any community because they reduce food waste, keep wildlife out of backyards, and provide food for those in need. To find out if there is a gleaning program in your community ask your local food bank, volunteer organizations, or other local food programs.

Our Viewpoint

Senate expenses beg questions There can be no doubt Pamela Wallin has joined a select, but unenviable, group of senators, following fallout over her “troubling” travel expenses. The ostracized few — including fellow former Conservatives Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau — are no longer permitted to charge travel expenses other than direct flights to and from their home ridings. Wallin’s apparent habit of charging taxpayers for sidetrips to Toronto, while travelling between Saskatchewan and Ottawa, is part of a pattern that led auditors to call for her to repay more than $121,000 of her travel claims for 2009-12. Wallin argues auditors used 2012 rules to evaluate pre-2012 expenses and suggests some discrepancies are a result of sloppy bookkeeping. Others suggest senators were given erroneous information when they assumed their duties. None of which alters the fact that Wallin – as a former high-profile TV personality, like the previously

disgraced Duffy – should have known the damage bad optics have done time and again to political figures. It’s no secret that Wallin was an appointee of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and was vociferous in campaigning on behalf of his party. Could that have accounted for a certain sense of invulnerability on her part? While the Conservatives have since done everything they can to distance themselves from Wallin, Harper has not escaped criticism for giving Wallin’s expenses a clean bill of health as recently as February. By May, Wallin was asked to resign from the Conservative caucus. But constituents could be forgiven for asking what changed about Wallin’s expense claims, between February and May, to alter Harper’s tune so dramatically on such an ardent — and presumably useful — supporter in the red chamber. - Black Press

his week is the final week of hearings for Taseko’s proposed New Prosperity Mine, which I know many of you have been following closely. I have followed this project since its inception almost two decades ago, when I was Mayor of 100 Mile House. I’ve supported the project from the beginning, both as mayor and as an MLA, as did MLA the city Musings council and the Donna Barnett community. This week, I’d like to tell you why I am convinced that this project should go ahead. Forestry has always been an important part of our regional economy, yet this industry has suffered as a result of the pine beetle epidemic which has affected our region, causing economic hardships and affecting many families. The New Prosperity Mine gives us a new opportunity – a chance to create jobs, reduce poverty, and boost our local economy. The economic impact the mine would have for our region is hard to exaggerate. There have been some concerns about how this project will impact First Nations communities, and I believe that through the consultation process, and through revenue sharing, we can address these concerns. This project will create many job opportunities for young First Nations people, bringing many benefits to their communities. Taseko has been a great corporate citizen, working with communities to ensure that they benefit from projects. At the Gibraltar Mine, Taseko signed an agreement with the Williams Lake Indian Band and has a great relationship with them, and the upgrades Taseko made to this mine left billions of dollars in the region and created 200 more permanent jobs. The New Prosperity Mine would bring these types of benefits as well. The New Prosperity Mine is truly a project that has the potential to live up to its name. That’s why it has my full support, and why I hope to see this project move forward soon. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Fences not meant to keep people out but keep cattle in The Cariboo-Chilcotin region (long known as cattle country) is home to some of B.C.’s oldest ranches, small and large, situated in every part of the region from east to west and north to south including: Anahim Lake, Redstone, Riske Creek, 150 Mile, 100 Mile, Horsefly, Alkali Lake, Gang Ranch and more. The grasslands (and timbered area) are plentifully stocked with beef-cattle. The areas are diverse (vary greatly in specifics) but they

Letters aLways weLcome

Cattle Fodder Liz Twan have some commonalties and some identical primary needs. Nowhere can cattle live without the basics; feed, water and shelter (at times). All of which man can provide,

in some fashion; but nature does it best (most economical). Another commonality is Crown grazing lands; used by most Cariboo ranching operations, leased to graze their cattle (generally summer months). Also the norm, all of the grazing-users employ fences as a primary management tool (deeded/leased lands). Most folks are cognizant of that reality on deeded (ranch) land, but many seem unaware that the same holds true for the

leased Crown grazing-lands. Fences are meant to keep cattle contained within a certain area, to make it possible to control their grazing activity; closely monitoring it to ensure optimum health of the grassland or pasture as an overgraze can severely retard re-generation and in the extreme, can cause irreparable damage. Prepare yourself, it’s time for the BEEF. Fences on Crown land are not meant (most cases) to keep

people out. But let there be no doubt — they are meant to keep cattle in and are vital to good cattle management practises. So while an open gate or cut fence may not concern you (enough to close it) — it should! As Crown (grass) lands belong to all British Columbians, that puts the onus on you to be responsible and not thwart good range-management practises with your careless actions.

William crowned King of the Hill Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer There’s a new king atop the mountain horse racing world. Roger William, on Sunday at the Redstone Rodeo, amassed enough points to defend his title from last year and be crowned the first ever King of the Hill mountain racing champion. “It worked out again,” William said with a chuckle. William won this year’s overall title at the Williams Lake Stampede mountain race and parlayed that with another win at the Nemiah Valley Rodeo before racing Saturday and Sunday last weekend to finish off the three-race series. “At Redstone I didn’t have too much luck,” he said, noting he finished fifth Saturday and sixth Sunday. “I had a bad start both days and I didn’t place too well, but all in all it was good.” William’s points totalled throughout the season, 197, were good enough to put him 12 points ahead of secondplace finisher Patrick McLeod (185). Riders get 40 points for a first place finish, 30 points for a second place finish, 20 points for a third place finish, and so on. Third place overall went to

Roger William was crowned the 2013 King of the Hill champion following Sunday’s Redstone Rodeo. Darren Setah (139), fourth place was Douglas Hennigar (80) and fifth place was Conway Lulua (70). William credits the work of his horse, a half-wild gelding named Nilin — which means flow in Chilcotin — for helping him win back-to-back titles. “He’s not a very big horse,” William said. “He’s 10 years old and this is his fourth year racing. Since the series started we’ve raced a total of eight rac-

es and he leads in all Stampede races and championships. “He’s quite a little horse.” He said keeping Nilin healthy and in shape is one of the key components to attacking the mountain race. “You need to make sure you feed it a certain way,” he said. “It’s quite a balance to overexercise or underexercise your horse and each race is different. “You almost have to go day by day, race by race and you

just prepare for the weekend and make sure your horse is in good condition, along with yourself.” A new title presented at this year’s rodeo season, the King of the Hill was derived from the Harry Setah Xinli, which was presented from 2010 to 2012. William said Setah’s family decided they wanted to have the award retired this year so a new championship was created. “This was initiated from the leadership and the family back in 2009 when Harry Setah passed away,” William said. “He was our wild horse ranger and parks ranger for Nemiah, and he used to compete in all the races, so we called it the Harry Setah Xinli for the first three years.” William said moving forward he has his sights set on a third mountain race championship for next year and said the camaraderie between all the mountain race riders is what keeps him competing in the sport. “It’s quite a thing,” he said. “There’s lots of respect there for all the riders, especially the young ones coming up. We’ve got quite a few from Nemiah still racing, too. “We all look out for each other.”

The finishing touches are on the ice at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex in for several upcoming hockey camps. Local teacher Mike Wilson will be lacing up his skates as an instructor for two of these camps — Rookie Hockey (5-9 years), and Sharpen Your Hockey Skills (8-13 years). The Rookie Hockey program teaches the fundamentals of hockey for kids new to the sport or with little experience on the ice. Sharpen Your Hockey Skills is for kids who have both minor hockey and backyard rink experience. The camps run from Aug. 19-23 and from Aug. 26-29. To register or for camp times visit or call the CMRC at 250-398-7665.

Sunday, Aug. 25 Kidney walk

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 under-recognized and undetectable in its early stages.

It was a triumphant return to action for hometown favourite Jimmy Lulua this past weekend at the Redstone Rodeo flat race. Jimmy emerged from the event the overall winner. “After recovering from his accident last year at the Nemiah Rodeo and mountain race Jimmy was a fan-favourite to win,” said his sister Gailene William. Jimmy’s brother Howard Lulua, who is still on the mend from injuries sustained during the Williams Lake Stampede, didn’t race, but had both his horses — Denaro and Woman — in the Redstone Moun-

Singing out at 7-Bar-7 Gospel Jamboree Sage Birchwater photos

Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune When three big name acts from Alberta, Montana and Washington State were unable to make it to the 18th annual 7-Bar-7 Gospel Jamboree at Cochin Lake during the second weekend of August (9-11), local musicians did the only thing they knew how; they got up and performed. Naturally there were a few surprises as some very skilled musicians showed up from Fort St. John, Prince George, Bella Coola, Williams Lake, the Okanagan, Alberta, Seattle and Arizona to compliment the excellent local talent from Tatla Lake. There was lots of room onstage for beginners with very rudimentary skills to come up and play a song or two, and the result was a fun time enjoyed by all. Performers included Bev Butler and Lea Butler on fiddle, Christine Peters on guitar and vocal, Wesley Birchwater on cornet and piano, vocalists Ruth Travers, Lana Birchwater, Charlene Travers, Mekayla Markley and Charlie Travers. Twelve-yearold Caleb Birchwater played a couple of piano pieces, as did Xavier Birchwater. Their sister, Acacia, played both the piano and fiddle. Doug Venn from

John MacKenzie and Ruth Travers sing together at the 7-bar-7 Gospel Jamboree held at Cochin Lake in the Chilcotin earlier this month.






Boitanio Park Prince George played several songs with his brother Teddy Venn from Tatla Lake, then was joined by his kids Doug Venn Jr, Nakita Venn and Justin Venn. John Mackenzie from Eagle Lake played his guitar in a round with fiddlers Bev and Lea Butler, then performed a few solo numbers. David Lulua, who grew up at Cochin Lake, took to the stage with his guitar and vocals, followed by Luis Mendoza, who made his way to the jamboree from Arizona and offered some incredible licks on piano and guitar. Teddy Venn accompanied his wife Ruth Kuehl-Venn for a few songs, then Clifford Schuk made a surprise appearance with his

daughter, Sydney, singing acapella. Not to be outdone, Allyson Schuk accompanied herself on guitar and sang a couple of tunes. Perhaps the most memorable musical delight was the contingent of two families originally from the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, who now make their home in Fort St. John. Luke, Stephen and Paul Noble, formerly of Williams Lake, sang some very melodious songs accompanying themselves on guitar, piano

and fiddle. Also from Fort St. John were Tony, Levi, Tianna and Jordy Warriner, who have roots in Bella Coola. They inspired people with their vocals backed up by lively piano, bass guitar and acoustic guitar. Shantyman pastor John Noble gave the sermon following the music on Sunday morning, and this was followed by the traditional pot luck feast. Of course a big part of the 7-7 Gospel Jam-

boree is the fun time playing in Cochin Lake. Young and old took to the water in a big way as a reprieve from the hot weather. Everyone extends a big thanks to the Travers family for hosting the memorable occasion for the eighteenth time. Ruth and Charlie Travers recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. As childhood sweethearts, Charlie says if he had his way, they would have married five years earlier.

Reva Schick collectable dolls in the Art Walk LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune Beautiful, life-like collectable dolls designed by local artist Reva Schick are on display during the 2013 Art Walk Show and Sale at J&E Gifts and Treasures. Both front windows feature the dolls in a

wide range of poses and settings, and they are also placed throughout the store. The dolls are not new to J&E, according to owners Jan Hermiston and Elaine Winslow, who said that it was an easy transition from carrying the dolls in the store to highlighting them during

Art Walk. “We brought them in about a year ago. They’re so unique. We were both customers – had purchased them for grandkids,” Hermiston said. “I just always really liked them.” She also said that once the current stock of Reva’s designs are

gone, they will no longer be available. “These are very affordable, but they’re truly collectables,” she continued. The dolls are also used with Alzheimer patients and with chil-

dren with Autism. “A lot of people come here from out of town who are collectors, and having Art Walk showcase art in the business community lets people know where to find them.”

This is the sixth time that J&E Gifts has participated in ArtWalk, and Winslow explained that they carry a range of artwork in the store as part of their regular inventory.

“When we shop for our store we look for unique items that aren’t carried elsewhere in the community,” Hermiston stated. “People love these dolls: they are truly unique and so lifelike.”
