RCMP search for missing Quesnel woman


Quesnel RCMP continue to search for 21-year-old Caitlin Murray of Quesnel. Murray was last seen Monday, Sept. 30 on video surveillance, parking her car at approximately 12:45 a.m. near the Fraser Bridge Hotel in West Quesnel. “Family and friends are worried about her well-being and are unable to locate her,” north district media relations officer Lesley Smith said. “ Quesnel RCMP have searched the immediate area

Case against councillor moves forward Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer The arraignment hearing for a Williams Lake city councillor charged with obstruction of justice has been adjourned until Oct. 23. Appearing for Surinderpal Rathor, Vancouver-based lawyer Jeff Campbell asked the Justice of the Peace in Williams Lake Wednesday for an extra two

weeks. In a phone conversation with Gary Lilien Weiss, acting as agent on behalf of Crown Counsel Patricia Schmidt who will be handling the case, both parties agreed they would be ready for an arraignment hearing by Oct. 23. Last month an RCMP press release stated the charge stems from an investigation

where on Dec. 24, 2012, Rathor assisted police as a translator for a criminal code case. “Rathor allegedly interfered with the investigation beyond his role as a translator,” said north district media relations officer Lesley Smith. The Justice of the Peace said the charge is indictable and directed the court clerk to set the matter for Jan. 8.

Tax exemptions benefit local organizations Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer More than a dozen Williams Lake organizations will benefit from a total of $166,600 in tax exemptions in 2014. Some organizations are receiving more than one of 27 exemptions. At its regular council meeting last week, city council approved the exemptions. “It’s something we do every year,” Mayor Kerry Cook said.

Included on the list are Youth For Christ, Cariboo Friendship Society, Nature Trust of B.C., Abraham’s Lodge and Care Society, Williams Lake Association for Community Living, Potato House Sustainable Community Society, Cariboo Elks Home Society, Boys and Girls Club of WL, Child Development Centre, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139, Station House Studio and

Gallery, Seniors Activity Centre Society, WL Curling Club, Chamber of Commerce, Williams Lake Stampede Association, Trail Riders, Gavin Lake Forest Education Society, St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church because of its baseball field, Voice of Pentecost Church, Salvation Army, Gendun Dubpra Bhuddist Centre, Canadian Mental Health and the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club.

Carla Burlinger (Communities that Care), Carol Archie (social development assistant from the WL Indian Band) and Marilyn Livingstone (multicultural program at CMHA, Cariboo Chilcotin Branch), attend the Cariboo Welcome Fair on Saturday.

Walk for harmony celebrates art LeRae Haynes Special to Tribune/Advisor The 2013 Walk for Harmony scheduled for next week will combine with an art project that celebrates cultural diversity. “We try to change the theme of the Walk for Harmony every year — last year we had a poster contest and this year we’re combining with the mural unveiling,” said Marilyn Livingston, multiculturalism co-ordinator with Canadian Mental Health Association, Cariboo Chilcotin Branch (CMHA). Livingston said they’ve been holding the walk to honour the national day to eliminate racism since 2004. This year CMHA is joining forces with the

Fraser Basin Council to create a unique community event featuring the unveiling of a new mural and a walk – both focused on ending racism and on the gift that diversity brings to a community. The event begins at 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the Coast Fraser Inn parking lot where a mural celebrating diversity will be unveiled. Participants will join a walk to end racism at 11:35 a.m., moving down Carson to Boitanio Park for refreshments. Livingston and co-worker Bettina Schoen said both events are meant to help celebrate diversity and end racism together as a community. “This walk is more important than ever; we often focus so much

on turmoil and conflict, and this event focuses on what brings our community together,” Schoen said. “This is such a great community and we can do a lot if we work together. Every culture and every age group has something to contribute.” Throughout the year the multicultural program at CMHA also ‘twins’ elementary schools in the Cariboo Chilcotin — a program that impacts the Walk for Harmony. “An aboriginal rural school is paired with an urban school in order to create relationships between the kids before the get to high school. They visit each other’s schools and write to each other, increasing awareness and understanding, and kids in-

volved in the twinning projects often attend the walk for harmony,” Livingston said. Livingston added the walk is important on a global level. “There is so much war, death and violence in the world and what we need is to find light and positive togetherness in our local communities,” she said. “What we want people to walk away with is how proud people are to live in the Cariboo Chilcotin and how much diversity we have to celebrate.” For more information about the walk and the unveiling, phone Marilyn Livingston at CMHA at 250-3029119 or Maureen Lebourdais at the Fraser Basin Council at 250392-1400.

Keeping your eyes healthy is very important. Part of a regular eye exam is to have a dilated eye exam which allows the eye doctor to have a good look at the retina at the back of the eye. Some diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes and macular degeneration are often symptomless in the early stages but could be discovered with a dilated eye examination. Have you had your eyes checked lately? If you drink fat-reduced milk (skim, 1%, 2%), you aren’t missing out on any important nutrients. You will get no less calcium or vitamins in the low-fat versions. If now is the time you’ve decided to stop smoking, you might be interested to know you can start using nicotine replacement therapy like patches or lozenges while you are still smoking. If you are a heavy smoker, start with the strongest patch and you will find you will automatically adjust your nicotine intake from one source when you add another.

Xeni Gwet’in plan trip to Ottawa for historic case Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer A bus loaded with elders and leaders from Xeni Gwet’in (Nemiah) will makes its way across the country arriving in time for the William rights and title case being heard in the Supreme Court of Canada in Ottawa on Nov. 7. “We’ve done all these steps to fight and protect our rights and title as a nation,” Xeni Gwet’in chief Roger William said, adding the importance of the William case cannot be overestimated because it raises one of the most central issues of indigenous rights that exist in Canada. “The question of the land rights First Nations hold today over the lands they controlled before the Crown asserted sovereignty is central, and the way this question is

Xeni Gwet’in chief Roger William is leading a group of First Nations across the country to hear his William rights and title case in the Supreme Court of Canada. answered will determine the place of First Nations in Canadian society, the extent to which they will control their own future and the shape of Crown-

First Nations relations for decades to come.” “This case is an important opportunity to take concrete steps forward toward reconciliation in

this country,” said AFN National Chief Shawn Atleo in May. “Respect and recognition is the basis of opportunity and successful partnerships

required to build a stronger sustainable future for First Nations and all Canadians.” There have been nine judges, several intervenors, and lots of back and forth between the provincial and federal governments since July, William said. The court case is in William’s name. He said he’s been involved with it right from the beginning. Back in 1989 his elders predicted the case would end up at the Supreme Court. It was at that time the Xeni Gwet’in declared that nothing would happen without their involvement — no commercial mining, no commercial logging. Their decision led to court cases, road blocks, attempted negotiations and agreements with government, because they realized they had to

back up the declaration, he added. As the court date draws close, William said he thinks often of the elders who testified in court but have passed on today. “I’m not even thinking about the ultimate outcome and decision, but more about the enormous sacrifices Xeni Gwet’in elders and members made to protect 80 per cent of our caretaker area inside the Chilcotin.” Final details for the bus trip are not finalized, however it is hoped the bus will depart on Oct. 30, making stops in each province to meet with local residents. The stops will provide an opportunity to introduce community members who testified in the court case between 2002 and 2007, William said. It’s going to be a weeklong title case trip for one day in court, he chuckled.

home-sharing arrangements where practical. “Society is evolving, and I’ve had the opportunity to visit individuals who want to live in an inclusive environment, in a neighbourhood,” McRae said, adding there is “no push” to move people away from group homes. McRae is reaching out to employer groups, to build on successful work placements in grocery stores and other workplaces. “For a person with a disability or not, having a job, and it could be full time or part time, allows you to have a role in soci-

ety that gives something back, and increases your self-worth,” he said. “I think there’s huge value in that.” McRae recalls segregated classes from his own childhood. As a high school teacher up until his election in 2009, he worked with integrated classrooms. Work and retirement are the next phases. That step begins with new oversight. Effective in October, Representative for Children and Youth Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond’s mandate is extended to people moving from youth services to CLBC responsibility,

continuing until age 24. In a pilot project, the ministry has hired four “navigators” to guide developmentally disabled people leaving school, to make sure they don’t fall through the cracks

and have the welfare and health support they need. Another pilot begins in Burnaby next year, with a navigator assigned to help developmentally disabled people adjust to their senior years.

One of Christy Clark’s first crises as premier was a 2011 revolt by parents and caregivers over money-saving changes to the B.C. government agency responsible for developmentally disabled people. The CEO of Community Living B.C. was fired after reports of people being moved from group homes into contracted home-sharing arrangements without consent. Waiting lists swelled as 65 group homes were closed, with disabled people living longer than ever before. A government MLA, Randy Hawes, joined opposition critics calling for relief. A work program at a Maple Ridge recycling facility had its operating funds cut, a decision hastily reversed as the government found an extra $40 million for CLBC’s budget to assist 13,000 developmentally disabled clients. Clark promised a reorganization. Two years later, Comox Valley MLA Don McRae is the new Minister of Social Development and Social Innovation. He is touring the province during October, looking for ways to deliver that innovation, with an emphasis on finding jobs and homes for as many developmentally

disabled people as possible. Money is still a big pressure, with the government beginning a “core review” to squeeze more savings from all ministries. McRae has already faced criticism from contracted service agencies after their budgets had to absorb a three per cent wage hike for unionized employees. McRae said in an interview this week he has yet to meet a service agency that has been unable to work through the new budget with help from CLBC. And the agency continues to pursue

Framing succesful creations Bruce Charbonneau is a certified picture framer and owner of “Frame Creations by Bruce”. In the spring of 2006 he moved to Williams Lake with an interest in opening a small business in his trade expertise. He began his framing career in Powell River, BC in 1980, where he bought a mom and pop business with his wife and turned it into a thriving gallery and frame shop. He also became one of the first five Canadian framers to achieve certification from the PPFA (Professional Picture Framers Association) when the program came out in 1986. After relocating to Williams Lake, and with his business plan approved and with the help of my start up financing from Community Futures, he was able to lease a small storefront location downtown on First Avenue South. After officially opening his business he started advertising in the paper, then incorporating a newsletter and developing a mailing list to promote his services. He’s been having such success, he hasn’t looked back in over seven years of being self-employed. In addition to his business expanding, he’s created a website which showcases examples of his creative framing in a

variety of different categories such as; Memorials, Military, and Memorabilia. On a personal level, Charbonneau likes to take an interest in supporting local creative interests, and features a gallery at his business which displays the work of other artists. He is also proud to be a director with the local Downtown Business Improvement Area (BIA) and is in his second term as director. Charbonneau is now in his 34th year as a professional framer, and when not maintaining his storefront business he is sculpting and creating in his studio at home. With the help of the Community Futures Business Plan Development workshop, he was able to take his dream and bring it to reality.

A new program at Marie Sharpe elementary is aiming to establish better relationships between families and their school and community. Craig Munroe, principal at Marie Sharpe elementary, said the program, called FAST (Families And Schools Together) — a nonprofit agency that designs and distributes family-strengthening and parent involvement programs — is the first of its kind in School District 27 in the past five years. “We’ve seen a great response,” Munroe said, adding nine families are so far on board with the program, which runs every Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Marie Sharpe elementary for six weeks, excluding Halloween on Oct. 31 and Thursday, Nov. 17 during fall break. “It’s an opportunity for kids and families to connect with their community.” FAST in Williams Lake was launched following a partnership between the staff at Marie Sharpe elemen-

Obamacare at the heart of U.S. shutdown The egos of a few have ground the U.S. Federal government to a halt this week. Each political party is blaming the other for the deadlock and the move could put the Americans’ fragile economy back into a recession, which could in turn hurt us, too. As many as 800,000 federal government employees have been forced into taking leave from their jobs with some agencies almost entirely shutting down such as NASA, the commerce department and the Environmental Protection Agency. The partial closure is even affecting farmers. At the heart of the matter, it seems, is the Republicans’ refusal to let President Barack Obama’s new health-care reform legislation lie. House Republicans have re-

fused to pass spending measures needed to deal with the country’s debt until Obama makes the changes they want to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It’s a funny thing, because Obama fought for the Affordable Care Act in his first term, it was eventually passed, and he was re-elected based on the ACA for his second term. It would seem the country has made itself overwhelmingly clear on what they want for health care. Providing affordable health care is the right thing to do. The only people who don’t think so are the ones who can afford it the most. Obama is going to have to stick to his guns on this one, or his health care legislation is going to go the same way as his suggested gun reforms.

Magic of ripples forms positive currents It wasn’t even planned. Might have even been illegal!  But it happened, just the same.  It started when a young man from Germany came to Canada for a visit.  He was a friend-of-a-friend who had asked if he could accompany my husband to his orthodontic practice as he hoped to study dentistry. Of course that was fine! We had a great time making him welcome in Canada and including him everywhere as part of our family.  He didn’t cost us much other than a little time and food, but the ‘connect’ we had was genuinely enjoyable.  During the visit he fell particularly in love with a simple song, Ancient Words, and we sang it over



and over again. While traveling north to the dental office, he heard the song dozens of times over from a CD in my husband’s truck.  It was definitely a case of “die or enjoy!”  Anyone need a ride north? But the story doesn’t end there.  Before our new friend left Canada to return home, Gabi Weiand kindly translated the lyrics for Ancient Words, by Michael W. Smith, into German, and our visitor boarded the plane with the illegal sheet music and the translation in his brief case. Back in Germany, Gunter shared the song with his musical mother, Heidi, who directs a competition-level choir.  Ancient Words was performed at the next exhibition. 

Living out Loud

with Rita Corbett

The other choir directors loved it, and asked for copies. The inspiring song has now been sung, hummed and whistled in all sorts of venues all over Germany, and it is still traveling. Ripples. Yes, appropriate con-

tact was made to reimburse Michael W. Smith for his work. But beyond that issue, ripples don’t cost much. A willingness to help.  An openness to sharing.  A few minutes here and there. An extra plate at the table. A search for common ground. A desire to listen for possibilities. Simple acts, whether kind or thoughtless, can change lives, change dreams, and change the future.  In water, ripples disappear pretty quickly. But when they are created among people, the effects can last forever.  Sometimes ripples are missing — there simply aren’t any.  I recall once waterskiing on a lake so still it was impossible to

tell where the water was. My ski quickly slid sideways across the glassy surface, and then so did I. I needed a few ripples — just a few bumps to give. We all make ripples — with rocks, feathers, words, frowns, or gracious acts of kindness. Perhaps if my little ripples combine with yours, a swell of good things can happen.  Together, those ripples can build into waves and form a strong current of positives.  Gunter is coming to visit again soon; it’s almost time to pick another song.  But first I have some really insignificant things to do ... little things - things that can create ripples.

Science loses ground to superstition From Stockholm to Sydney to Sicamous, September was a bad month for science. In Sweden, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change finally issued its widely leaked update on human-caused global warming. As expected, it downgraded predictions of temperature rise in the face of 15 years of measurements that show little or no average surface temperature increase. The official spin also went as expected. The revelation that more than a dozen computer prediction models have all more or less agreed, and all have been wrong, was played down. The IPCC went from “very likely” to “extremely likely” to affirm its belief in humancaused warming, even as its own core evidence went the other way. Again and again we are told that the vast majority of scientists believe in human-caused warming, and those who don’t are labeled “skeptics” or even “deniers” with hidden agendas. The problem is, science isn’t supposed to be done by polls or popularity contests, or assertions of faith like those that greeted Galileo’s wild claim that Earth is not the centre of the solar system. Before the angry mail starts to arrive, let me hasten to add I am not arguing for or against the theory of human-caused climate change. You can label me a “skeptic” as I view the temperature read-

ings and the shifting theories advanced to explain them. Speaking of temperature data, David Suzuki had a problem with that at a TV town hall in Australia. Polite, well-informed questions soon revealed that while Suzuki rails constantly about the horrors of global warming, he doesn’t actually know much about the latest science. As I’ve written before regarding his CBC-funded attacks on Canada’s oil and gas industry, Suzuki is not only behind on his homework, he resorts to cheap, sensational tricks to exaggerate and misrepresent hazards. His tactics are identical to the U.S.-financed environment groups that obsessively target Canadian petroleum. As for his appearance on Australia’s public broadcaster, don’t take my word for it. Just Google “An Audience with David Suzuki” and watch the show for yourself. Back in B.C., local politicians gathered in Vancouver for their

annual convention. One of the most intense debates was over a call to the provincial government to declare B.C. “genetic engineering free.” The heart of this movement, which has resorted to vandalism in Europe, is hostility towards Monsanto’s “Roundup ready” seed. Speakers at the municipal convention warned of sinister “corporations” trying to contaminate and control our food supply for profit. The debate pitted hobby farmers against professionals. Peace region grain farmers said such a ban would put them out

of business. Others pointed out that the province has no jurisdiction and that  scientific decisions shouldn’t be influenced by emotion. The session ended with a classic pseudo-scientific claim. A woman who used to have a couple of bee boxes said someone’s bees died and there was a Roundup-ready canola field next door. Case closed. The misguided “G.E.-free B.C.” motion was supported by a narrow majority. As it turns out, there are agricultural pesticides that may be harmful to bees. The David Suzuki Foundation is part of an

effort to get one of them banned in Canada. The problem is, it’s not Roundup, and it’s got nothing to do with genetic engineering. They’re called “neonicotinoids,” because they’re similar to nicotine. Old sheep farmers may recall using a crude version: tobacco  soaked in water to kill insects on sheep. It’s ironic that as the “information age” accelerates, our society, overwhelmed by conflicting messages, slips back towards superstition.

Next 12 months critical for New Democratic Party The once powerful NDP party in British Columbia is in tatters, but not torn. Since the last provincial election in May, many have been calling for the head of Adrian Dix to be put on the party’s guillotine. Now that Dix and his buddy Moe Sihota have said they will step down, the party will be scrambling to find a new leader and this can be divisive. The party will also be re-inventing itself so by the time the next election rolls around, the NDP will be ready to take on Christy Clark and her Liberal gang. Dix blew a 20-point lead going into the last election and I think Carole James would have

Contemplating Ken

done a better job for the NDP but still would not have beat the Liberals. Dix ran a positive campaign and that along with his Kinder Morgan fiasco and other goofy things, lost the election.

It really is too bad that negative advertising during an election campaign does work — they have been doing it with success south of the border for years. I think people would want to know what the parties can do, instead of how bad they are. The Libs kept suggesting throughout the election that the NDP would be poor managers of the economy, and this resonated strongly with the citizens of our province, who knew we were in a vulnerable fiscal position. So who will step up from the NDP ranks to take over the leadership of the bedraggled New Democratic Party?

Mike Farnworth, a veteran politician who came second in the leadership race that saw Dix win the top job, is someone who will be hustling his NDP ‘buns’ to find out if he has the support to win the race. John Horgan, also has support with party members, and might run, as may Gregor Robertson, Vancouver’s left wing mayor. Whoever succeeds Dix and Sihota will have their work cut out for them. The NDP will be looking at walking down a different path, perhaps one more towards the middle of the political spectrum. Other NDP jurisdictions in this country have had success

with the shift away from the very left and there may be other changes, like how they deal with the strong and entrenched union wing of the party. As union strength diminishes across the country, maybe their influence in the hierarchy of this NDP party may also be weakening. Whatever happens with the New Democratic Party in the next election, will probably come down to what occurs within the party in the next 12 to 15 months. Who says there is no fun in B.C. politics, whether it be provincial or local? Ken Wilson is a columnist for the Weekend Advisor.

Small businesses make big difference October is Small Business Month in B.C., celebrating the important contribution of small businesses in our province. Small business owners and entrepreneurs work incredibly hard day-in, day-out, and I can’t think of a better way of thanking them than by celebrating our sixth annual Small Business Month. Small businesses play

a key role in our provincial economy. Of all the businesses in B.C., 98 per cent are small businesses, meaning

they have less than fifty employees. This includes everything from mom-andpop convenience stores to technology startups. These small companies provide well over half of all private sector jobs in the province, and make a big difference in our communities. Small business owners often work long hours, put-

ting everything they have into making their business successful. It takes a lot of courage to start a business and to stick with it, and I am amazed at the passion and hard work of entrepreneurs here in B.C. Considering the importance of small businesses in our communities, I’m glad our government is able to give a helping hand by

Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food. Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently. Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away. Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns. Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags. Keep knives out of the reach of children. Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child. Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet. Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle. Make sure your smoke alarms are working.

Keys to Thanksgiving dinner success Thanksgiving weekend is coming up. Have you planned your dinner? I suspect many of us will be having a turkey or perhaps a ham and of course a sweet potato or two. Part of the success of any meal is in the planning and preparation. Although I must admit to having thrown together some pretty good meals without the fuss of planning. But, more often than not, your Thanksgiving dinner will have more chance of success

Ken’s Country Kitchen

with Ken Wilson

if you make a list and shop early. Don’t wait until the last afternoon before you need to cook to buy that big ol’ turkey. You may find one, but not the size or quality that your would have preferred for your meal.

Certainly we are in the throes of fall when we have to start thinking about Thanksgiving, the tree leaves turning more yellow, and utilizing that which Mother Nature has provided for us at this time of the year. We have lots of fall harvesting wrapping up in the Cariboo and I am looking forward to those nice golden pumpkins being made into pie ... yummy. I can’t wait to dig into a great turkey dinner and taste a big ol’ thigh with some nice

turkey gravy, then on to the last course, a nice pumpkin and lemon pie. Different kinds of squash also add to a nice Thanksgiving meal. Try this Baked Butternut Squash • 1 butternut squash ... about 2 pounds • 2 tbsp melted butter • 1/4 tsp salt • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon • 1/8 tsp of ground nutmeg • 1/4 tsp pepper • 6 tsp brown sugar Cut squash in half

lengthwise and discard seeds, then brush with butter. In a small bowl put in the salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper, then sprinkle over the squash. Put 2 tbsp brown sugar over the squash halves then sprinkle rest of brown sugar overtop. Put in a baking dish and coat with a spray of oil. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes until the squash is tender. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

Communities want goose kill permits Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. communities are again seeking federal and provincial help to keep Canada goose population under control by killing geese that are fouling beaches and parks. Delegates at last week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention endorsed a resolution from Osoyoos, to address a

problem that plagues many B.C. communities. Thompson Nicola Regional District director Tim Pennell told the convention that beaches around area lakes are being “destroyed” by geese, and their droppings are triggering beach contamination warnings that affect tourism and local residents’ recreation. The Osoyoos reso-

lution notes that addling goose eggs has had limited effect, and hunting regulations prevent culling in recreation areas. It asks for the Canadian Wildlife Service to issue more kill permits. Failing that, they want the province to issue permits.  In 2011 the UBCM asked senior governments for help controlling geese in parks, and the B.C.

Do you ever feel like every level of government has their hands in your piggy bank? Do you ever wish you had more say? Here’s your chance...

government said kill permits are federal jurisdiction. Geese and their droppings are a chronic problem in other areas. A local resident wrote to the Abbotsford News in July, complaining that “there is so much goose poop on the paved trails that it’s like navigating

through a minefield.” On Vancouver Island, golf courses hire dog handlers to chase geese off fairways, sometimes shifting the problem to the next golf course. Farmers also struggle to protect crops from geese and deer, which have proliferated as hunting has declined.

Virgo, listen to friends and family members when they encourage you to try something new this week. Trust your instincts, as they seldom turn you in the wrong direction

Scorpio, though it may feel like others are flying past you while you’re slowly plodding along, eventually things will even out and you’ll end up where you need to be.

Create some plausible plans for the future this week, Sagittarius. Keep a journal to help you keep track of your ideas and make sense of your plans. Capricorn, your generosity finds you devoting much of your time tending to the needs of others this week. Enjoy your time helping others and don’t be afraid to accept their gratitude.

“Slow Down” It was a spectacular morning, but I was too hurried to notice. I was in a haste to get to work after losing too much time on my way out the door.“Don’t drive too fast,” I told myself, aware that there were more kids out on the streets today, the first day of school. But apparently my version of slow-enough is not the official version. As the road sloped downhill past the first of two schools on my route, I saw a newly installed sign flashing numbers at me. The flashing numbers were slightly (but definitely) higher than the posted limit in a school zone. My speed! What the sign did next is what surprised me most. It gave me an order:“Slow Down”. Right to the point.That point was further pressed home when I saw a Citizens on Patrol volunteer standing on the corner, looking my way with the embarassingly disarming combination of friendly smile and radar gun. He didn’t need to say a word. Message received.“Slow Down”. The message I received is a message that applies far beyond the streets. Here it is: Going too fast hurts people. You endanger the people around you, and the people closest to you, when you drive too fast. Can I pose a question here? Are you driving your LIFE with a heavy foot? Way too many people live their lives proudly bearing the title of “Driver” - living in perpetual haste, always pressing faster, never slowing down, never pausing to think about what that unceasing pace is doing to them and the people around them. Would you be willing to shift down for a moment and consider what your pace might be doing


BY Chris harder to your marriage, your family, your own soul? Jesus put it in a brilliant question: “what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?” Then there are things that, combined with speed, really endanger us on the road: an unexpected turn, changes in the weather, unforseen obstacles, limited visibility. I remember driving a twisty mountain highway at night, in a hurry to make it to our destination. The night was moonless black as we plunged further through the curves. Coming round one especially tight corner, my headlights exposed a fallen rock in our lane. The boulder was big as a desk, and I could envision the article some local reporter

would write: “Family dies because man had to get someplace fast.” I slowed down. On the road of LIFE you will face unexpected turns, changing conditions, and times when you can’t see what lies just down the road. If you press on at the same relentless pace, especially during those times, you will hurt someone – maybe you, maybe the ones closest to you, probably the ones most vulnerable. So how do you slow down? Here’s a couple of things you can do to deliberately slow the pace and take stock of what’s going on in your life. Press pause. Insert a daily pause (I do it before breakfast) to consider your values, your direction, your attitude, the things and people that matter most to you. This is not the time for “to-do” lists, but the time to ponder, to read, to pray, to write what comes to mind. Christians commonly refer to this as “quiet time” and it can become a life-changing, lifegiving pause in your daily journey. Just. Stop. Here’s an ancient truth: one day in seven you need a break from what you’ve been doing. Even God did it. He took a rest after six days of working hard. Not because he was “tired” in the sense that human beings get tired, but because he wanted to establish from the very outset that taking a rest was normal and important. The ancient word for this is “Shabbat”, which means “to cease”. Open yourself to these gifts God wants to give you. Discover the power of daily prayer. Experience the delight of pausing weekly to worship the God who cares for your needs even while you rest. Slow down and live.

Compost happens to the best of us I have been busy filling my compost bins for winter. I have one of those three bin structures where the idea is to always have one finished, one cooking and one being filled. In the past the bins were situated far from the house and neglected. In the fall I would fill them with garden waste and in the spring I would lift the lid and discover ... dried up garden waste. To make matters worse, the bins faced west and the wicked winter winds were forever blowing the lids open with such force it was wrecking the hinges. This despite using three concrete blocks — the kind people often couple with planks to make shelving — plunked one on top of each bin. One of the bins wasn’t used for compost at all, but a pseudo garden shed. Plant pots, buckets and stakes and all manner of garden paraphernalia were routinely shoved inside. All in all, it was a very sorry and unproductive state of affairs. This fall we hauled the bin up to the new garden closer to the house and almost overnight I became a compost queen. Instead of tossing


Slice of Life

with Shannon McKinnon

potato tops and pea vines into the bins willy-nilly, I actually followed instructions. I carefully built my layers of browns and greens. I scurried back and forth collecting straw, manure, sheep bedding, leaves, old grain and anything else that came to mind. I buzzed about with my loaded wheelbarrow like a worker bee, muttering fascinating things such as “Aha! Some greens! More browns, I need more browns.” Creating compost is often likened to making a cake. If you were baking a cake you wouldn’t dump in a cup of flour, wait a month before adding an egg, and then leave the bowl on the counter for another few weeks before pouring in some milk and expect to get something edible. It’s the same thing with cooking compost. If you want the compost to “cook” so it will kill off any pathogens or

weed seed you need to gather your ingredients together and layer them all at once being sure to sprinkle each layer with water as you go. When you’re done you close the lid and leave it to cook. I walked away from the pile in the same way I walk away from a cake in the oven; with a dollop of doubt that it would actually turn out. Three days after filling the first bin the magic began. The mixture actually began to heat up. Lifting the lid one cool morning I was greeted by drops of moisture raining down from the inside of the lid and rising steam. I shoved my hand into the mix and felt the building heat with the kind of giddy excitement most women reserve for a shoe sale. When Darcy arrived home from work I pounced on him and said, “I don’t suppose you want to come out to the garden with me and feel my compost pile?” As the long suffering husband of a rabid gardener, Darcy is used to unusual requests. He is routinely hauled off to the garden to look at freshly hatched flowers, unique seed

heads or a loaded berry bush. This, however, was the first time he had been asked to share my enthusiasm over manure and apple cores. To his credit, Darcy set down his lunch kit, postponed supper and the ball game on TV and followed me out to the compost bin. He bravely plunged his hand through the layers into the depths and agreed that things were definitely heating up. A few days later he even bought me a leaf sucker. What a guy! Now my bins are full and steaming and I have moved on to open piles. The whole idea of bins is to disguise what would otherwise be viewed as an ugly sight. With no neighbours nearby to take into consideration, I have gone a different route. I have carefully positioned my compost pile so I can see it from the house. The idea of sipping my morning tea while watching steam rising off the compost thrills me. That’s weird, I know. Last week I even bought a compost thermometer and a moisture meter. I am now officially a garden geek. The thermometer

is just like the one you use for testing a turkey only longer. As I check my compost, prepare more batches and vacuum the forest for leaves it’s as if I am nature’s housewife getting ready for a banquet. And in a way I am. A banquet of plants that will arrive with hungry roots come spring. I can’t wait. In the meantime I really should be vacuuming the house and doing some cooking for Thanksgiving and the human company it brings. Just one more bag of leaves… Shannon McKinnon is a humour columnist from northern BC. You can read more about gardening in the Peace by visiting

Parents bring sunshine to Sacred Heart The Sacred Heart School Parent Support Group (PSG) brightened up the day for students with a surprise from the sunshine club, a group of parents within the PSG who plan fun activities and surprises for the students. The sunshine club provided a small sun and Hershey Kiss to all the students before recess.  “A little something to brighten their day,” said Tara Sherlock, organizer of the first surprise of the year.  School principal

Nick Iachetta is thankful for such a caring and committed group of parents. “They make up the heart of our school. Even with the Ethnic Dinner coming up, they will still go out of their way to make the students feel special. We are very lucky.”  The school’s annual Ethnic Dinner and Auction will be held Oct. 19  with a Mexican Fiesta theme.  The Parent Support Group has already planned crazy hair day on Oct. 16, Halloween

activities and pumpkin carving later in the month, and a community movie night Nov. 7. The PSG hopes that more families will take advantage of the small classes and community feel within the school.  “As a parent, we tend to look to other parents for advice. We are always willing to chat if anyone has questions about the school” says PSG chair Leigh Pinette.  Sacred Heart is still accepting students and all students are welcome.

Cecil Grinder photo

Peyal Laceese lights the fire as part of preparations for a six-day sweat lodge at Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) recently.

Bryan McElroy A+ Phone: 250-305-1120

Building on tradition at Teztan Biny Sage Birchwater Special to Tribune/Advisor Build it and they will come. That’s the phrase Cecil Grinder keeps mulling over as he prepares the sweat lodge site at Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) for another sacred ceremony. Hosting a five-night/ six-day event in that remote part of the Chilcotin at the end of September is no small matter. There are no guarantees the weather will cooperate or anyone will show up, but Cecil went ahead anyway and laid the groundwork. Since he retired from a 20-year career with the RCMP, Cecil has turned his energy to helping the youth of his Tsilhqot’in

Nation. He has a gift for that, and his way with young people is impressive. He mixes gentle firmness and persistence with caring and understanding, and empowers those around him with responsibility. Cecil laughs how his load is lightened by delegating responsibility. When we arrive at the public campground at Teztan Biny on September 26 it was already getting dark. It was Day Three of the six-day event, and we were just in time for the evening sweat. I was apprehensive about heading out to an event billed as a fourday fasting sweat. I’ve been around the block enough times to realize

it’s not wise to engage in something you are not prepared for. At the same time it felt important to support Cecil’s noble cause. Cecil Grinder’s “noble cause” at Teztan Biny began several years ago when he hosted a four-day fasting sweat for a young man ready to pursue his inner spiritual quest. That’s when Cecil first built the big sweat lodge and set up the camp at the end of the road beyond the public campground. A smaller fasting lodge was erected in a secluded spot nearby. I was glad to learn that the fasting part of the sweat wasn’t mandatory, so I willingly joined in. Nine of us took part

in the ceremony that night, three women and six men. Two of the participants were high school youth that Cecil was mentoring. In a shift from his usual role as Tsilhqot’in National Government (TNG) legal counsel, Jay Nelson, scooped red glowing rocks from the fire with a long-handled fork, and passed them to Cecil who placed them carefully in the centre pit of the lodge. All summer Jay had dutifully worked around the clock representing the TNG at the environmental panel hearings for the proposed New Prosperity Mine at Fish Lake. See GRINDGER Page A19

Next to me in the lodge was Friends of Nemiah Valley (FONV) president David Williams. I didn’t even know David had come into the lodge until it was his turn to speak and offer a prayer. For more than two decades David has been a tireless supporter of the Xeni Gwet’in efforts to secure the rights and control of their traditional territory. He also played a significant role at the recent panel hearings, by bringing several expert witnesses to testify. Once the rocks were in place for the first round, Jay Nelson closed the blanket opening to the lodge and the Cecil passed the duty of running the sweat to his 16-year-old protégé, Peyal Laceese. Peyal, a student at the Carson Campus of Lake City High School in Williams Lake, has been following the Red Road, as he puts it, for several years. He is a grass dancer at pow wows in Western Canada and the United States and learned the traditions of the sweat lodge from Sioux elders. “There’s no wrong way to pray in the Sioux tradition,” he tells us. “Speak from

Her academic assignment for missing a week of school was to keep a journal of the ceremony. The other youth at the ceremony was Shania Cook. On my other side in the sweat circle was Xeni Gwet’in elder, Norman William, who grew up at Little Fish Lake. He served as Cecil’s right-hand man throughout the six days, cutting firewood, helping set up the camp, and showing people around the area. The men all sat together, and next to Norman was Emery Phillips, spouse of former Xeni Gwet’in chief and now band councillor, Marilyn Baptiste. As Cecil pointed out

later, the sweat brings out the sincere emotional side of participants. He said Emery is no exception. “He has supported our Teztan Biny sweat ceremony from the beginning.” Next to Emery was Marilyn, and beside Marilyn was my partner, Caterina Geuer. That made nine of us going the four rounds of the sweat that first evening. For each round more rocks were added from the fire, and the temperature rose inside the willowframe hut, covered with tarps and blankets. I sweated profusely in this ancient fellowship connecting the raw elements of nature, spirit and matter.I’ve been here before. We humans have the ability to create sacred space, simply by our intention and agreement. God knows it has been done

before with temples, cathedrals, mosques and pyramids around the world. Each night the formation of the sweat was different. On the second and third nights, I took over as rock bearer so Jay, Dominique and Sasha could experience it. Xeni Gwet’in Chief Roger William took one night from his busy schedule to take part in the ceremony. “The prayers and drumming were for our lands, resources, community members and leaders,” he said later. In all more than 40 people came and went from the camp over the six days. Some took part in the sweats, others just visited, or supported the gathering in various ways. Cecil’s spouse, Doreen William, also grew up at Teztan Biny. “One

High hopes for man’s best friend Angie Mindus Staff Writer Dog really is man’s best friend, just ask Keith Jones. Jones, a natural resource officer within the compliance and enforcement department of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources, brings his new dog Hunter with him to work when he’s in the field but he also has bigger plans for him too. “I’ve been wanting to get a dog for search and rescue (work) for quite a few years,” said Jones, who is also an auxiliary RCMP officer in his spare time.

Angie Mindus photo

“And Williams Lake is a great spot to do that.” Jones and his family moved to Williams Lake this past spring after living in Mackenzie for the last ten years. Jones was an active member of the search and rescue team in Mackenzie, and plans to volunteer with the Central Cariboo Search and Rescue as well. Once Hunter is trained Jones said he hopes the dog can also become an active member of the local search and rescue team and a member of the B.C. Search and Rescue Dog Association.

Arch-topped windows and intricate wood detailing lend this two-storey family home a touch of old-world elegance. Inside, though, everything is up-to-date, with all the appurtenances a modern family requires. Entrance is through a covered porch, protective in inclement weather, and into a foyer with a den and powder room immediately to the left. The den is ideally located to serve as a home office, and looks out onto a covered porch, spacious enough for a pair of rockers and some containers of greenery.  Beyond the U-shaped stairway to the second floor is a coat closet, and through an archway is great room, located at the back of the home. A room for all seasons, the great room boasts a corner fireplace and enjoys access to a covered terrace.  Adjoining this covered terrace is another terrace, not covered, and overlooked by the dining room’s large windows — just the spot for al fresco meals in the warmer months.  Separated from the great room and dining room only by a large prep island, the kitchen features an efficient L-shaped counter configuration. The window over the sink — always a welcome bonus — has an extra-deep sill for plants and collectibles. The spacious pantry is tucked into a nook behind by a doorway that also leads to the laundry room, where built-in shelving will go a long way to eradicate any wash-day blues.  The master suite, which also enjoys access to the covered

terrace, boasts a window seat, inviting its occupants to curl up with a good book. The en-suite includes a soaker tub, for a touch of spa-like luxury, as well as a corner shower. Access to the generous walk-in closet, which includes built-in shelves, is through the en-suite. Upstairs are the second and third bedrooms, which share a three-piece bath and a linen closet. Bedroom No. 2 features a sloped ceiling, while Bedroom No. 3 boasts a built-in desk. Occupying the space over the double garage, which is fitted with a work bench, is a games room with a bayed out, arch-topped window, as well as a sloped ceiling.  The plans include an unfinished basement.  Plans for design 7-3-943 are available for $758 (set of 5), $856 (set of 8) and $917 for a super set of 10. Also add $30.00 for Priority charges within B.C. or $55.00 outside of B.C. Please add 7% P.S.T., 13% H.S.T. Or 5% G.S.T (where applicable) to both the plan price and Priority charges.

Senior members of the Williams Lake Skating Club Georgia Jacobson, Nathalie Sylvain and Alanna Walters help youngsters eager to learn the art of skating at the CanSkate program Wednesday evening. See more about CanSkate on Page B2.

Stamps to host Tomahawks in opener Greg Sabatino Staff Writer Hockey’s back and so are the Williams Lake Stampeders for another season in the Central Interior Hockey League. The senior men’s Coy Cup Provincial Champions open its season Saturday, Oct. 5, against their southern rivals, the Lac La Hache Tomahawks, at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex in Williams Lake. Throughout the month of September the Stamps held tryouts every Tuesday and Thursday night at the CMRC. Williams Lake Stampeders general manager Kelly Kohlen said Thursday the final roster, which doesn’t need to be submitted until early January, is beginning to take shape. “It was as good as can be expected,” Kohlen said. “Turnout was about the usual, and we’ve got a couple new players – a couple young kids.” Both recent Williams Lake high school graduates and Thompson Rivers University students Greg Nickel and Derrick Walters have

he added. Vancouver Canucks 2006 draft pick Evan Fuller, Kohlen said, is also back living in Williams Lake, adding he’s hopeful Evan will join his brothers Brady and Tyler on the Stamps’ roster for the season. Meanwhile, a potential bid to host the 2014 senior men’s Coy Cup Championships is in the works for the Stamps. Kohlen said the team should

have an answer from BC Hockey by Oct. 15. “We put the bug in their ear last year when we were up at Coy Cup — a rep from BC amateur [hockey] was there and we told them we wanted to host it, but who knows?” he said. “I don’t see why not though. We haven’t had it here since 1996.” Heading into the 2013/14 season the Stamps hope to once again be one of the frontrunners to win the CIHL league championship, and the CIHL playoff championship — a title that’s eluded them since 2011. When asked if there will be added pressure on the Stamps to perform this season Kohlen said it’s hard to say. “Everybody wants to beat the Coy Cup winners but we didn’t win the playoffs so I don’t know if there will be much more pressure or not,” he said. “It would be nice to win the championship and go into the Coy Cup as league champions. That would be nice, but you never know.” Puck drop Saturday is at 7:30 p.m.

New CanSkate season underway with full turnout Angie Mindus Staff Writer The CanSkate program kicked off this week with 36 new to

beginner skaters taking to the ice at Cariboo Memorial Complex. “It’s a little stressful the first few days,”

said Williams Lake Skating Club coach Joanne MacNair, who heads up the program. “But within two weeks, even the littlest

of the little will know what to do.” MacNair said Skate Canada launched the new learn to skate program using cir-

cuits and music last year, which MacNair started teaching right away with great results. “This is fun and more interesting for the kids, and after last year I can tell you that it works. I saw a huge

difference.” MacNair runs CanSkate but she said it wouldn’t be possible without the senior figure skaters from the local club, who volunteer as program assistants for CanSkate Mondays and

Wednesdays. This season of CanSkate is full, but those interested can sign up for the next session starting in January. Visit com for more information.

Sea cadet sign up underway through October The Chilcotin 202 Sea Cadets have started another year and October is the time to join, said Fred Van Kuipers, president of the Navy League of Canada Chilcotin Branch. “They will immediately start practicing their seamanship as the northern zone competitions are at the end of November,” Van Kuipers said. The Chilcotin 202 Sea Cadets have hosted the northern zone competition the

last two years, having finished in first place to qualify for provincials. The sea cadet program is free, Van Kuipers said, and is financed by the Navy League of Canada and the Department of National Defense. The group meets every Thursday from 6:15 to 9 p.m. at the cadet hall below the radio station on First Avenue. “Remember, it’s free,” he said. “Check us out and ride the wave.”

Manchur to join elite runners in Africa Greg Sabatino Staff Writer A Williams Lake runner is moving to Kenya for six months to train with some of the best runners in the world. Sheldon Manchur has been training for and doing well at marathons and halfmarathons throughout B.C. for the past 18 months, along with racing in April’s Boston Marathon. Now, the 28-yearold said he’s ready to test the waters in a remote African village which attracts some of the top runners in the world. The village, Iten, has an estimated population of about 4,000 people. “Two-thousand of those are top-quality runners from any distance — 400 metres up to marathon runners,” Manchur said. “It’s kind of a poorer village, but the significance of it is over the years it’s somehow become a mecca for the Kenyan runners. “Anybody who wants to become a full-time runner or already is a full-time runner is kind of attracted to and merge to this village.” Famous British long-distance runner Mo Farah, who won gold medals in both the 5,000-metre and the 10,000-metre races at the 2012 London Olympics, trains out of Iten for parts of the year, Manchur added. “It’s everybody helps everybody else out there,” he said. “Most of the winners of the top marathons — the Boston Marathon and the Berlin Marathon — the majority of those are won by Kenyan athletes, and the majority of those are from this village. “They’re very open. You’ll get groups of five, to 10, to 20 people going out on these runs together ranging

from the best in the world to people like me at the back.” He said depending on how things go in Kenya he’ll then make a decision on whether he wants to commit more time to the sport. “I don’t quite know yet [if it’s something I want to do full time],” he said. “It’s something I’ve thought about, a lot. But it takes years to get there — years of being a full-time athlete and that means years off work for the most part, so it’s a big commitment to make. “I’m going to do these six months — that’ll be kind of like doing a full-time gig, and see how that goes and how it progresses and kind of make a decision when I come back on how I want to go forward.” To find accommodations during their trip Manchur said he contacted an American documentary-maker, Martin Mudry, who spent three months in the village filming a documentary in Iten on the Kenya runners called Where Dreams Don’t Fade. “He was in the middle of doing his final editing of the documentary, so he was a huge help,” Manchur said. “He was very familiar with the area so he got me in touch with some locals and managed to find a place to stay that way.” Manchur will be travelling to Kenya with his fiancee, Shelby Moon, who he said also plans to take advantage of the running opportunities during their stay. Most recently Manchur finished first overall in the men’s half marathon at a cross country race, the Kamloops Dirty Feet Race at Kenna Cartwright Park. Manchur and Moon leave Oct. 16 for Iten, Kenya.

Lakers win OV fundraiser tourney The Williams Lake Lakers capped off an impressive season late September winning the Overlander Pub Fundraiser Tournament at the Esler Sports Complex. The Lakers, coming off a win at the Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League Year-End

Tournament earlier in the month, marched away with the championship after winning three back-to-back games — the last coming against the Williams Lake Rowdies in the ‘A’ division final. In the ‘A’ division semifinals it was the Rowdies edging the vis-

iting Prince George No Glove No Love, while the Lakers, later on, beat the Prince George club to advance to the final. On the ‘B’ side of the draw it was the McChickens edging the Highlife to win the title. The top three teams in the ‘B’ division each

won team prize packages, while cash went to the top teams in the ‘A’ division. The first-place Lakers received $900 and a team package, while the Rowdies won $550 and a team package. Third place in the tournament, Prince George, picked up

Fall CAR CARE Reach top mileage on your car while it’s still going strong Many drivers may find the idea of keeping a vehicle that has surpassed the 100,000mile mark preposterous. However, perhaps due to the rising cost of new vehicles, many drivers now recognize the benefits of keeping their vehicles for the long haul. According to Polk research, many of today’s drivers are keeping their cars for longer periods of time, with the average age of all cars on the road being 11 years. In October of 2011, Joe LoCicero saw his 1990 Honda Accord crack the one million mile mark, a feat for which Honda awarded him a new Accord and a parade in his hometown. There are many benefits to keeping a car longer, including the financial impact of such a decision. In a recent survey and study from Consumer Reports, the savings of keeping a vehicle for 225,000 miles over 15 years versus purchasing and financing an identical model every five years equated to a savings of more than the original purchase price of the car. A person can potentially save $20,000 or more on a properly maintained older car. Keeping a car running beyond 200,000 miles was once pure

if they follow these guidelines. Many people are keeping their vehicles longer, reaching mile

marks that were once unheard of. Investing in a car that has a good track record of longevity and then

properly maintaining the vehicle are necessary to getting the most out of your vehicle investment.

luck. Cars made 10 to 20 years ago might not have been up to the task. But improvements in rust prevention, lubricants and engine technology have made it easier for today’s vehicles to last longer. But as durable and reliable as today’s cars may be, AAA notes the importance of regular maintenance. Knowing your car is one of the first ways to make sure it gets the service it needs. Over time, many drivers start to identify warning signs, such as abnormal noises or if the vehicle simply feels off when out on the road. Finding a mechanic that can be trusted is an important step for drivers who want to keep their vehicles going strong for years to come. A driver is more likely to bring the car in for service if the

price is right and he or she does not feel like any costly and unnecessary repairs are being recommended. Building a good relationship with a mechanic can keep a car working longer. Newer model year cars can be taken to dealership mechanics, who may have a better working knowledge of newer electronics and the subtleties of specific models of cars. The owner’s manual should not be something that simply takes

up space inside the glove compartment. It is worthy of a read. Understanding the recommended maintenance schedule and what other steps can be taken to prolong the life of the car can keep it on the road longer. Keeping the tires inflated to the proper pressure and using the right type of gasoline are the types of information that can be found in the manual. Drivers can save a lot of money on unnecessary repairs

Winter is unpredictable… Your tires shouldn’t be!

How to change a flat tire

3. Put the car in park and engage the emergency brake. Place bricks or wooden blocks under the tires on the opposite side to prevent the car from rolling. 4. If you have cones or flares, use them to make your vehicle more visible to fellow motorists. This can save you from being struck while changing the flat. 5. Connect the jack handle to the rest of the device. Slide the jack under a secure part of the car frame near the damaged tire.

6. Use a screwdriver to pry off the wheel cover or remove the hub cap to gain access to the lug nuts on the tire. 7. Use your tire wrench to find the side of the wrench that matches the size of the lug nuts. Turn the wrench counterclockwise to loosen all the nuts. Loosen them until they can comfortably be removed all the way by hand. 8. Use long strokes when pumping the jack to reduce the effort you have to put. Lift the car up until

the wheel clears the ground. 9. Remove the lug nuts and store them in a safe spot until later. Grasp the flat tire with both hands and pull it toward you until it clears the ends of the bolts. Roll the flat to the rear of the vehicle. 10. Lift the spare tire into place and slide it in completely over the bolts. 11. Replace the lug nuts and tighten them by hand. 12. Carefully lower the vehicle and remove the jack. Tighten the lug nuts completely with the wrench. Then replace the wheel cover. 13. Put the flat in the trunk for proper disposal or repair later on. 14. Remove the blocks from your tires and disengage the emergency brake. You should now be ready to get back on the road.

Many drivers will experience a flat tire at some point in their lives. Flat tires can be a nuisance, especially if a flat leaves you stranded on the side of an empty road with little opportunity for passing traffic to help you. Knowing how to change your own tire can keep you from sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck or fellow motorist. There is no need to feel helpless when your vehicle gets a flat tire. Changing a flat tire is relatively easy and can take just a few minutes if you are prepared and know how to get the job done. 1. Turn on your emergency flashing hazard lights and pull the car safely over to the side of the road where you will not be in the path of traffic. 2. Try to find a level, stable surface so that the car will not roll.

Fall CAR CARE Must-have items for automotive emergencies Few drivers want to think about their vehicles breaking down. But cars are not foolproof, and even the most well-maintained vehicle can be sidelined by a flat tire or a dead battery. In certain times of the year, a breakdown may be an inconvenience that takes up a few hours of a person’s time. In extreme weather situations, a broken down car could be dangerous. Preparing for emergency situations can help drivers get moving faster. There are certain items that should be kept in the trunk or cargo area regardless of the season, and some of these items should be modified as the seasons change. * First aid kit: If someone is hurt in an accident, medical supplies in the trunk allow drivers and/or passengers to treat injured persons until paramedics can arrive. Go over what is in the kit and learn how to use each item correctly. * Flares: If your car breaks down at night or in situations where visibility is poor, flares can keep other drivers away from your vehicle when it is parked on the side of the road. Flares also will illuminate the area so that you can work on fixing a problem or alert emergency personnel as to where you are located. * Jumper cables: Jumper cables enable you to recharge a dead battery, a com-

mon problem in cold weather. Automotive retailers also sell portable car battery chargers that can provide the boost needed to the battery in the event you cannot find another car around to offer assistance.

* Spare tire and tools: Tire blowouts or holes in tires are unpredictable. Having the necessary items at the ready can get you back on the road faster. Learn how to change a tire. In a pinch, tire sealant can be used to

get you to the next service station and away from the side of the road. * Flashlight and batteries: A flashlight makes it possible for drivers to see under their vehicles and under the hood more ef-

fectively. It also can be used to grab the attention of fellow motorists who might be able to help. Keep extra batteries for the flashlight on hand as well. * Blankets: A blanket can keep passengers warm if a car breaks down in chilly weather. Blankets also can be placed on the ground so that you can lay on the road and be cushioned from debris when looking under the car. * Extra clothing: An extra set of clothing can be handy should your clothing become soggy or soiled.

* Nonperishable foods: A few snacks and bottles of water stashed in the car can help quell hunger while waiting for a tow truck. * Sand and kitty litter: Sand can weigh down the back of a rear-wheel drive vehicle to provide better traction on slippery roads. Sand and kitty litter also can be sprinkled underneath tires to help them grip the road better when you are trying to get the car out of an icy or muddy patch. * Charged mobile phone: Keep your cell phone charged so that

you can make emergency phone calls or contact a tow company in the event of a breakdown. * Shovel: A shovel makes it easier to dig a vehicle out of mud or snow. Certain things should not be stored in a vehicle. For example, hot weather can cause lighters and cans to burst inside of a car, so such items should not be kept in your car. In addition, freezing temperatures may reduce the effectiveness of certain products and cause liquids to freeze and burst.

Did you know? Motorists who still adhere to the old standard of changing their vehicles’ oil every 3,000 miles are likely wasting their money. The majority of today’s auto manufacturers now build vehicles that can go twice as long, if not longer, between oil changes. Many automakers now call for oil changes every 7,500 miles, and some go even further, recommending oil changes every 10,000 miles. Some vehicles can even go as long as 15,000 miles before needing an oil change.

Vehicle owners should consult their owner’s manuals for advice on how often their vehicles’ oil should be changed. When establishing an oil change schedule for their vehicles, many drivers are hesitant to abandon the conventional 3,000 mile interval schedule that was long espoused by the auto industry. But advancements in technology have allowed manufacturers to recommend longer intervals between oil changes, which benefits motorists’ bottom lines and even the environment.

Rather than needlessly wasting perfectly goodoil every 3,000 miles, in many instances motorists can now continue to use that oil twice as long, if not longer, reducing waste-oil dumping as a result. When consulting an owner’s manual for recommended oil change intervals, owners should resist the temptation to follow the “severe” schedules listed in many owner’s manuals. Such schedules are rarely applicable under normal circumstances, and only serve to waste drivers’ money and oil.

Walk to school week starts Monday, Oct. 7 Put your walking shoes on! Oct. 7-11 is International Walk to School Week and communities across the globe will hit the streets on the way to the classroom to celebrate the benefits of walking. Often taken for granted for its simplicity, walking is a multi-faceted contributor to healthy lifestyles, safe streets, and overall community wellbeing. And for a society that leans towards too much sitting, a simple walk to school or work can be of tremendous benefit.  Encouraging kids to walk to school is a chance for them to get outside, to get to know their streets and their neighbours and to promote an active lifestyle that will stay with them throughout their lives.  So get up a little earlier in October, breathe the fresh fall air, and start the day off with a stroll. Research shows that physical activity increases attention and academic success in children, not to mention making them happier and healthier.  Walking also cuts down on the emissions produced by driving, improving air quality and making school zones safer by reducing speed and traffic congestion.  Motor vehicles create more air pollution than any other single activity and in Williams Lake vehicle exhaust is a contributor to the particulate that detrimentally affects our air quality.  Interested in starting an International Walk to School Week initiative at your

school? Start a friendly competition to get students excited about walking; think about a

“walking school bus” that collects neighbourhood kids en route to school so they can

walk as a group. Or just start walking; there’s no special equipment needed and it is a

simple way to get stay healthy, get active, cut down on vehicle emissions and fuel costs, and

kick off each day with energy and fresh air! For more information check out

Jean Park

Dec. 5, 1980 - Oct. 5, 1997

Dale Valburg May 12, 1932 October 1, 2012

In Memoriam

August 30, 1923 to September 28, 2013

It is with extreme sadness that the family of Jean Park announces her passing. Jean is survived by her daughter Sheila Park (Kamloops), her grandchildren Leslie Ennis-Smale (Red Deer), David Park (Calgary), her great grandchildren Keenan Rose (Kaitlin), and Kelsie Smale (Red Deer), Kimberly Park (Calgary). Jean was predeceased by her husband Frank Park (Williams Lake) in 1982 and her daughter Susan Park (Chase) in 2010. Jean was born in Burnley, Lancashire, England. At 14 she worked in a cotton mill before she turned 17 and was able to go into nurses training at Keighley Victoria Hospital in Yorkshire. She worked as a nurse until she had her children. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1952. Her husband Frank joined the RCAF. Jean lived with her family in many communities across Canada and also in France. They “retired” to BC in 1968 and lived in Kemano for 4 years before moving to Williams Lake. Jean’s greatest pleasures came from her family. She loved being a grandmother and a great grandmother. She enjoyed her grandchildren’s visits and happy times at holidays with family and friends. In retirement she delighted in many trips with her daughters. Her 1985 tour of China fulfilled a lifelong ambition, as a nurse she had long admired Norman Bethune. Jean volunteered with many organizations throughout her life. She was a Guide as a girl and maintained this interest as a Guide Leader in the many communities she lived in. Jean lived in Williams Lake for 26 years. She worked and volunteered at Williams Lake library. Books and music were her passion. She was in many Williams Lake musicals and the Seniors Choir. She also volunteered for the Williams Lake Hospital Auxiliary, Cancer Society, Museum and the NDP. Jean also enjoyed writing stories, poems (her family now treasure as memories) and of course her letters to the editor of the Williams Lake Tribune. In her “spare time” Jean loved to knit and many babies received her sweaters and hats. Slippers, scarves, preemie toques, adult toques and speed skate guards were projects always in progress and all donated to many different organizations. Jean moved to Kamloops in 1999 to be near her daughters. She lived at Cottonwood Manor and enjoyed the new friends that she made and the community spirit of the Manor, of course she also volunteered in the Maple Room. Jean will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Jean would remind you to “smile” and also that “You don’t have to behave but discretion is advised.” Gramma Jean you got to 90!!! Jean’s family thanks the physicians, staff and volunteers at Kamloops Seniors Village where she has lived for the past six years in Assisted Living and Residential Care. Respecting Jean’s personal request, no formal service will be held. A private family celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre, 690 Second Avenue North, Williams Lake, BC V2G 4C4 would be appreciated in her memory. Creation arrangements are entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service.

Terry Pfeiffer Of Williams Lake and formerly of Likely, B.C. passed away on December 31, 2012 at the age of 83 years. Terry was born in Odenburg, Hungary on October 15, 1929. Terry came to Canada in the late 1950’s and became a Canadian Citizen on January 13, 1960. He spent time in Smithers and Vancouver, before coming to the Likely area. Terry was employed by Merrill and Wagner (Weldwood of Canada) as a camp cook/watchman for many years. During that time he worked at the Spanish and Cariboo Lake camps. Terry enjoyed gold panning an exploring the Likely area and was always available for a good cup of coffee and a game of UNO or Skipbo. Terry retired and settled at Seven Mile where he had a garden, chickens, ducks, pigs, cats and his dog Goldie. Terry came to Williams Lake to reside at the Williams Lake Seniors Village and then moved to Retirement Concepts where he met and befriended many people including the staff and residents. Terry was an active person and could be seen around Williams Lake shopping at all his favourite places.
