Prosperity Mine on MP’s bucket list Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Wednesday’s throne speech sets out a path for the next two years, said Cariboo-Prince George MP Dick Harris. “Our government is continuing to concentrate on creating jobs, it’s

a priority for the prime minister,” Harris said Thursday. His riding has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Canada, he added. “We’ve all been through the pit of the depression and come out stronger than ever.” Attributing the recovery to the

spirit of the people living in the region, Harris also credited the federal government for investing hundreds of millions of dollars in the region in both infrastructure and spending that created jobs. “In the throne speech yesterday the prime minister spoke about the $70 billion infrastructure commit-

ment our government made with the economic action plan,” Harris said. “That’s still got a ways to go. I think somewhere around $50 billion has been spent.” Harris also said the New Prosperity Mine is on his bucket list and he plans to keep fighting for it to open.

Fisheries worker honoured for saving man from river Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Three men who rescued a fishing guide from the Quesnel River on Sept. 20   have been recognized for bravery by the deputy minister of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Northern Shuswap Tribal Council fisheries technician Andrew Mishue is one of the men, but said the rescue was all about “being in the right place at the right time.” Mishue and Shane Kalyn, a technician from DFO, were out flying with Highland Helicopters pilot Steve  Goodliffe to do a routine Chinook count on the Quesnel River. “We landed on a sandbar to take off the front door and take the water temperature when we learned there was a guy in the river,” Mishue said Wednesday before he formally accepted the award. Earlier that morning

When the wind picked up, the boat went with it. As the helicopter landed on the sandbar,

an angler from Gabriolo Island ran up and said the guide had gone into the water hoping to retrieve the boat. He had been in the water almost half an hour and was running into trouble, the angler told them. “Steve took off with the other guys and he

spotted the boat, blew it to shore,” Highland’s base engineer Bruce Jacques said. “The guy was wearing a life jacket, which was fortunate because that kept him up, so Steve was able to use the same trick with him and use the downwash of the rotor blades and

with the current push him to shore.” By the time the men caught up with the angler they determined he needed to go to the hospital. The water temperature was about 12 degrees. “He had a dry change of clothes in his boat but he was hypother-

AN APPLE A DAY... Flu viruses are spread by contact with respiratory droplets from another person’s sneeze or cough. These droplets may make contact with your nose or mouth. It can also be spread by kissing or touching something with the virus on it. Shaking hands can do it. (Elbow-bumping, anyone?) Other ways of reducing your chances of getting the flu (besides the yearly flu shot) is to ensure you are getting enough zinc and vitamin D in your diet. Zinc seems to strengthen the immune system. Beef, lamb, chicken, oysters and pumpkin seeds are good sources. Multivitamins contain 7.5 to 15mg of zinc. Vitamin D in doses of 2000 units daily from food and supplements is now a recommended minimum. Pharmacists are often asked if it’s safe for a pregnant woman to get a flu shot. The answer is a definite yes. The flu can put stress on the heart, lungs and the immune system as well. Having respiratory problems while pregnant can cause complications. So by all means, if you are pregnant, get a flu shot. For many herbal remedies, there is no good evidence for many of the claims made for them. Arnica is one of these. It’s not safe to take it orally, however for use on injured areas of the skin that might bruise there is some anecdotal evidence that it helps. So it’s worth a try. Side effects include itching, rash and dry skin. For answers to your questions about herbs or any other drug product, talk to our pharmacists. They are always ready to serve you.

mic,” Mishue said. Back in Williams Lake, Jacques received a call on the satellite phone and contacted B.C. Ambulance out of Kamloops. “I told them we needed an ambulance down here because we had this situation and if it’s not here by the time the machine is here we would drive him to hospital,” Jacques recalled. The ambulance hadn’t shown up by the time the helicopter landed in Williams Lake, so Jacques jumped in the truck with the rescued man and drove him to Cariboo Memorial Hospital. Mishue said the award was an unexpected surprise. Mishue has been working for 15 years as a seasonal worker. Before presenting Mishue with the award on behalf of the deputy minister, Dave Reedman, assistant resource manager for DFO in Williams Lake, said he

was honoured. While the award recognized Mishue’s role in the rescue, Reedman said he also wanted to recognize Mishue’s efforts on behalf of salmon in his territory, year in and year out. “I’ve worked with Andrew and known him since the beginning of my career with the department, which is 12 years, and as I’m sure you all know, Andrew’s a dedicated guy and a great person to have out on the river,” he said. In a written statement, King said he was informed the quick response and action of the three men resulted in a fast retrieval of an individual from the water and prompt medical attention. “These actions demonstrate an exceptional commitment and dedication to serving the public,” King said. Commendation awards recognize displays of conspicuous courage and bravery in circumstances of peril.

PROFESSIONALS: Network

Workers collaborate on youth mental health Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Child and youth mental health was on the minds of dozens of people who gathered at Signal Point for a meet and greet last week. “We wanted people to come together and network,” said Marnie Brenner who offers physician support in her role as Interior Health’s Practice Support Program (PSP) team in Williams Lake. The goal of the evening was for physicians to meet face to face with child and youth workers in the community, she said. Dr. Glen Fedor has practiced in the Cariboo for 32 years. As team leader of the PSP he said networking is key. “There has always been a passion to improve mental health in Williams Lake, so it’s about getting physicians involved, and getting to know what resources are there,” Fedor said. Physicians are sometimes the initial gatekeeper, Fedor said. Families will bring a child to the doctor first to find out what’s wrong. Abdominal pain, for example, can sometimes really be about anxiety, he suggested. “There are huge gaps in every community on how patients go through

On Oct. 29, the collaborative will offer a child and youth mental health two-hour evening learning session at Deni House. “It’s open to almost anybody,” Brenner said. The training sessions enable physicians, counsellors, teachers,

sellors and other agencies, means more youth and families will receive support. Pointing to a computer screen, Fedor showed off an algorithm designed for working with children. He clicked on the depression file for an example. “There’s a depression scale that we go through, tools and guides for parents, assessment for every visit with a physician, how to screen for suicide or substance abuse.” It’s a simple program that gives physicians tools that probably a lot of them never learned in medical school, he

added. The algorithm is on the Internet and anyone can access it - (http:// www.gpscbc.ca/aboutgpsc/about-us). Even if the child’s case becomes “red zone” and too complex, the algorithm suggests who the physician should be referring the child to, or if a psychiatrist should be involved. “Maybe as a family doctor you’re not ready to tackle this on your own,” Fedor said. “Before people would go to one place and if it didn’t work they’d go try something else. Now we’re trying to take a team approach and work together.”

social workers and people working with children to discuss issues in small groups, Fedor explained. “Say you have a youth who is coming to your office who is feeling very anxious and doesn’t want to go to school.

OCTOBER 8 Bruno Mars, Singer (28)

Others view you in an entirely different light than you view yourself, Taurus. Consider their perspectives and keep an open mind. It might just help you grow as a person.

OCTOBER 9 Sean Lennon, Musician (38)

Many ideas are running through your head, Gemini. But you have to stick with one idea and go with it. Though this may seem like trying to find a needle in a haystack, the focus will pay off.

OCTOBER 11 Matt Bomer, Actor (36)

Someone puts all of their faith in you this week, Cancer. Don’t be nervous about living up to their expectations. Just operate the way you always do and things will work out. Leo, a number of things keep you occupied this week. The only difficulty will be narrowing down exactly what you want to do. Give this decision the attention it deserves. Virgo, no matter how many times you voice your opinion, there seems to be one person who just doesn’t seem to catch on to your line of thinking. Accept such differences of opinion. Libra, sometimes you put blinders on to situations that make you uncomfortable. It is your way of coping. But this week you need to keep your eyes wide open. Scorpio, you do not have the patience for puzzles this week. Encourage coworkers and family members to be as concise as possible when declaring their intentions. Sagittarius, this week you will have to do a number of things on your own. Make the most of this situation, as it might just prove to be a good test of character.

A change of scenery could provide the change in perspective you need right now, Capricorn. The trouble is finding the right time to get away. Plan a weekend trip if you can manage it.

Hospital navigator provides a friendly face Angie Mindus Staff Writer For First Nations trying to access the hospital, Barb Mack is often the first friendly face they see. Born and raised Tsilhqot’in, Mack is fluent in the traditional language and is the perfect fit working full-time as CMH’s aboriginal patient navigator.  “I’m a little bit of everything — advocate, interpreter and I help clients find services,” Mack says of her unique position. “Sometimes people just like to talk to someone who knows their language ... I love this job, it’s what I trained to do.” From the time she was a young woman, Mack says her job experience prepared her for role as patient navigator, the first working at the office at the Alexis Creek RCMP detachment years ago.

Though it had its lighter moments, the job at the detachment also put Mack on the

front lines witnessing difficult circumstances often involving friends and family members. “It gave me character,” Mack says of working at the detachment. “It gave me strength to deal with the tragedies.” After leaving that

position to advance her education, Mack next found herself in the role of community health liaison with the Tsilhqot’in National Government for more than 10 years. Mack said she enjoyed her time at the TNG office, and was

thankful for the job as it allowed her and her son Trevor to move to town for school and staff were also supportive of her son spending time at the office after school. Mack is the second person to fill the important role as aboriginal patient navigator at the hospital, a position born out of the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Katie Ross, who died after she was unable to communicate with staff that she had been shot. The Chilcotin Justice Inquiry that followed the death identified the critical need for Mack’s current position. Mack says the job involves being a part

of patient discharge planning, working to access Williams Lake resources and referrals for patients as well as being on the front lines at the ER when tragedies strike. But there are also days Mack’s responsibilities are pleasant. “I love going to the maternity ward and I also like to see the elders, because they always say thank you for coming to see them.” Between enjoying time with patients and having very supportive upper management, Mack can’t see herself ever choosing to leave the job. “I’m going to be hobbling around here with my walker ... I really love the job.”

Consumer help on the way The federal government brought down its Speech from the Throne on Wednesday, and advance reports suggested it would focus on the best interests of Canadian consumers. This is clearly designed with the 2015 federal election in mind, but it is a much-needed focus all the same. Canadians pay far too much for basic items, and given that most of them are not getting much in the way of wage increases, it’s getting harder to pay the bills. While the federal government can’t single-handedly force businesses to lower prices, it can open up sectors to more competition in several key areas under its control. These include the telephone, cable television, internet and credit card industries. Lack of competition means that Canadians pay very high prices for cellphone service, particularly for extras like roaming charges and data plans. The big three companies control almost all of the market and have shown little willingness to lower prices. On the cable television front, consumers are forced to pay a lot of extra money for channels they

don’t watch, and also often pay expensive bundled charges for cable and Internet service. In these two areas alone, consumers are forced to pay out more every year, leading to an erosion of their ability to buy other goods and services. Banks charge businesses excessive fees for the ability to accept payment by credit card. This adds to retail prices. The federal government also needs to look into whether marketing boards benefit consumers. The main effect of such boards is to double prices for goods like milk and cheese, as compared to the U.S. There is a slim indication that the feds may be willing to take on the powerful dairy farmers’ lobby, as a free trade deal with the European Union is on the horizon, and it allows for more cheese to be imported into Canada. The federal government can also look in its own back yard when it comes to reducing costs to consumers. It can stop levying GST on other taxes, as it does with fuel. Tax should be paid on goods or services, not on other taxes. - Black Press

Hope offers a buoy in life’s ebb and flow A man was shipwrecked, and found himself floating on a raft in the ocean. Only a circle of sharp fins marked his spot in a fathomless ocean. As he watched and waited, his thoughts turned sharply toward rescue. He sent little messages floating out to sea and used whatever he had to attract as much attention as possible. Hours and days went by. His food was gone, and water was getting low. Then suddenly he heard it — a ship’s foghorn. He could see nothing, and he certainly wasn’t safe. But something had changed. He had no help yet, but hope was born. About an hour and a half later

he thought he saw a ship’s form in the mist. Initially he could not tell which way it was going. But as the speck grew, he saw it was headed straight toward him. Hope grew. As the silhouette took shape on the horizon, he yelled and waved, willing some-

one on the ship to see him. Nothing had changed, really. He was still in the water. He wasn’t safe yet, and had not yet been seen. But hope was a possibility. The ocean-liner loomed, advancing as though to run him over. The ship passed so close to him he could feel the salt spray as its hull sliced the sea. But no one saw him in the foamy wake, and his hope was nearly extinguished. As the ship pulled away, a sailor scrubbing the rigging spotted the shipwrecked man in the water. Mops and brushes flew as the deckhand screamed, gestured frantically, then disappeared. The ship shrank into the distance, and the despair again threatened the waterlogged survivor. But the

sailor reappeared with a whole collection of shipmates — all of them now pointing at the dot the bobbing man had become. The survivor heard a change in the engine whine; the huge vessel began to rotate. And hope returned. The man’s life was still at risk! There were still the sharks to avoid and swaying rope ladders to climb, but the happy survivor never considered those intrusions. Hope had come home to stay. Hope offers us a buoy in life’s ebb and flow. We see it in a woman who tosses stranded starfish into the water. Spiritual writings even claim that a need for hope is what leads humans into faith. Said Martin Luther, “Everything that is done in

the world is done by hope.” Teardrops sometimes distort the view from our soul’s windows. But as we wait and hope, could we perchance toss a few hopes to someone else? Hope can sustain us in the midst of nothingness. After all, everyone has experienced being adrift in heavy seas! We can’t change depth of the ocean, nor calm all the swells that threaten to submerge us. But until a rope ladder appears over the side of a rescue ship, could we consider shouting encouragement to sinking fellow travellers? I hope so. - LOL@wltribune.com Rita Corbett is a freelance columnist with the Tribune/Advisor.

‘Social justice’ as student indoctrination As the B.C. Teachers’ Federation executive moseys back to the bargaining table after a summer off, I’m reminded of former education minister George Abbott’s thoughts on his time trying to establish a civil discussion with the province’s most militant union. It started with a lecture. “In my first meeting with the BCTF, and I gather this is characteristic of all first meetings with education ministers, the TF advises that yes, they are a union, but first and foremost they are social activists and agents of social change,” Abbott recalled.  Their buzzword is “social justice,” which is portrayed by leftists as superior to plain old justice, in ways that are seldom defined. So what exactly are the goals of this “social change”? Here’s some of what I’ve gleaned. Parents may recall the 2008 introduction of an elective high school course called Social Justice 12. This was mainly the result of intense protest by a couple of gay activist teachers, and the ministry curriculum describes its emphasis on inclusion of racial, cultural and sexual differences. That’s all good, and it’s now bolstered by urgently needed anti-bullying and empathy efforts at all grades. Then there is the BCTF version. It’s not just a battle against “racism, homophobia and sexism” but also “poverty and globalization.” The BCTF has a quarterly

B.C. Views

with Tom Fletcher

“Social Justice Newsletter” filled with predictable economic assumptions. Readers of the latest issue are reminded at length that the United Nations takes a dim view of Canada’s record on human rights, including a right to housing. Undefined “poverty” statistics are cited, although Statistics Canada has nothing but incomplete relative measures. One article describes a social justice club for Grade 2 and 3 students, with activities that include collecting food bank donations and “writing to the premier asking for a systemic plan to address child poverty.” Leaving aside whether eightyear-olds can understand what “systemic” means, this rhetoric is taken directly from the tired old NDP policy book. It rests on the cherished myth that poverty is imposed by right-wing governments that refuse to double the minimum wage and pile more taxes on “the rich.” And what about that darned “globalization?” The BCTF still has a 2001 teaching guide on its website promoting the claim

that Nike is uniquely guilty of making shoes and exercise gear in Third World sweatshops. Teachers are to instruct students how to organize a boycott of Nike, thus passing the received wisdom of campus radicalism to the next generation. This was all debunked years ago. Are Adidas, Reebok, Apple and Microsoft any different? Has nothing changed in 12 years? A quick web search will show this is a stale old tale with a convenient villain, to avoid complex questions. A BCTF official assures me this unit is being updated. Once that one is done, maybe they

could check over their teaching unit on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway proposal, another labour of the union’s “social justice” truth team. Entitled “What We Stand To Lose With Pipelines and Supertankers,” it boasts wildlife photos and “key sources” from the left (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives) to the farleft fringe (Pipe Up Network). It is another protesters’ guide designed around a pre-determined viewpoint. BCTF bosses love to talk about the importance of “critical thinking.” These one-sided caricatures of Nike, Enbridge and other familiar villains seem

designed to produce the opposite. They remind me of George Orwell’s classic novel 1984, where loyal party members are required to focus on selected enemies in a daily ritual called the Two Minutes Hate. Perhaps this is a clue to why our school system produces so many students lacking in employment skills and bursting with demands for governmentimposed wealth redistribution.

Vandalism of city bus shelters a completely senseless act Dick Harris, Conservative member of parliament, has been our representative since 1993 and in the last elections he has increased his percentage of popular vote. I don’t know if that means Mr. Harris is more liked the longer he stays in government or his contestants have not been very worthy in the voters’ minds! Harris is an expensive member of parliament. His salary and expenses come to $515,243 for the year ... Blake Richards of Wildrose constituency in Alberta was the only MP I could find that cost taxpayers more money and he was about $22,000 ahead of

our representative. Harris’s cohort, Conservative Cathy Mcleod from Kamloops, cost her voters $92,000 dollars less at $425,000 for the year. It costs $6.83 cents per eli-

gible voter in Cariboo Prince George to pay for Harris’s salary and expenses for each year. Harris has been a supporter of the New Prosperity Mine proposal and I think he has worked hard for his constituents over the years, although I would like to see him in the Williams Lake area a little more, something like he did when he was first elected. I like Dick Harris. He is quite engaging and has a good personality. Who will take his place when he decides to hang up his political hat and retire? I believe this will be his last term in parliament and then he will call it quits.

I hope he does decide to run for one more term. Keep up the good work, Mr expensive member of parliament ... come and see us a little more in Williams Lake and area. Bring money! *** Whoever it was that vandalized the bus stops in town should be shot with a ball of their own excrement. That might sound a little harsh but, for the life of me, I cannot figure out what kind of a thrill it would give someone to break the glass in the bus shelters. It was a stupid, senseless act that required the brain power of a slug. Where is the thrill in

damaging and defacing other peoples’ property? Do the types that do this goofy kind of vandalism get a high from this or are they just pissed off at the world. What if we were to smackup the perpetrators’ property to the amount of damage they caused to the city bus stops? Would that get them to thinking perhaps what they did was wrong? We could not do that because of all the do-gooders out there who believe these people are not bad and acting stupid, just a little misguided. Right.

Halloween festivities in the works

Tribune file photo

A laughing Erin Cordell spent part of her Halloween evening last year entertaining guests at Karen’s Place restaurant, which was turned into an after hours haunted house. The Long House is just up the hill from the parking lot where the city will be setting up a roaring bonfire for people coming to the Stampede Grounds to watch the city’s 34th annual fireworks show on Halloween night.

The bonfire will be lit at 7:15 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 31, and the fireworks will start at 7:45 p.m. A city report says the Halloween fireworks show is an event that promotes positive community health.

It provides a safe venue for families, youth groups and individuals to enjoy a spectacular annual event following the trick and treating that many families enjoy during the early evening hours. The fireworks show also helps to reduce crime in the community by drawing people together in one place and providing a focal point to visit friends and families. The 150 Mile House community club is also gearing up for its popular Halloween party which has been a tradition in that community for 25 years. 150 Mile Fire Chief Stan McCarthy says that party starts at 6 p.m. in the 150 Mile Community Hall on Halloween night. The event includes free hot chocolate, hot dogs, cotton candy, and goody bags for the chil-

dren, followed by a fireworks show at 8 p.m. McCarthy says the event is free, however, cash donations are accepted. Both the Boys and Girls Club and the Potato House societies are also holding special events in celebration of Halloween. The Potato House is hosting the city’s first Zombie Walk from the Potato House to City Hall starting at 4:30 p.m. on Halloween night. Zombies is also the theme for the Boys and Girls Club haunted house event coming up Saturday, Oct. 26 and Sunday, Oct. 27 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. each day. The centre is located on Fourth Avenue across from Safeway. The entry fee is a monetary donation or donation of non-perishable food item.

Tips from The CrD

fireworks safeTy proceed with Caution!

• Leave fireworks to the professionals. Do not use consumer fireworks. • The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public display conducted by trained professionals. • After the firework display, children should never pick up fireworks that may be left over, they may still be active. How HOT does a sparkler burn? Sparklers 1200 °F Glass melts at 900 °F Wood burns at 575 °F Cakes bake at 350 °F Water boils at 212 °F Consumer fireworks include sparklers and firecrackers. The tip of a sparkler burns at a temperature of more than 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hot enough to cause third-degree burns. FACTS • Each Halloween, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. • The risk of fireworks injury is more than twice as high for children ages 10–14 as for the general population. www.nfpa.org/education

The city of Williams Lake’s annual fireworks display will have a spooky neighbour this year. Karen’s Place Restaurant owners Karen and Raymond Brown are setting up their popular haunted house in the Long House this year. In other years they have turned their restaurant into a haunted house on Halloween night, Oct. 31. Last year their haunted house held at Karen’s Place Restaurant attracted more than 100 children so this year, with a little help from other businesses, they are expanding the concept and moving it to the Long House in Stampede Park. “We are changing things up a bit this year,” Raymond says. “It is for all ages. We make sure we don’t scare the bejeepers out of everyone.” He says they will also be giving out free hot chocolate and candy bags to children visiting the haunted house.

Airport updates friction reporting ability Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer When winter hits the Williams Lake airport new equipment will help crews provide winter friction reading reports to Nav Canada instantly. Airport   co-ordinator Shea De La Mare said the airport already has equipment installed in two of the airport vehicles that take a friction measurement of the runway to let pilots know how slippery the runway is. Thanks to a $39,000 grant from the Airport Capital Assitance Program, the new equipment will upgrade the existing decelerometer so readings can be transmitted electronically. In the past, information from the readings was routinely shared via voice over radio or

telephone to the Nav Canada Service Station. However, a regulatory change by Nav Canada now requires all Canadian Runway Friction Index reports to be provided electronically. The new equipment is basically a laptop computer that will be installed in a vehicle – similar to the ones used by RCMP in their vehicles, De La Mare explained. “We were aware that we needed the capability transmit the information electronically and submitted a grant application to ACAP in March.” De La Mare learned the application was successful in August. Last week city council authorized mayor and staff to sign an agreement with government for the grant, and once

Woodland Jewellers celebrates 80 years in business Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Looking up from the laser welder he is using to repair the claws on a customer’s diamond ring, jeweller Geoff Bourdon of Woodland Jewellers Ltd. smiles. “If my grandfather had this when he worked here, I would have never been able to use it,” Bourdon says of the welding machine. “He would have loved it.” As Woodland Jewellers Ltd. prepares to celebrate its 80th anniversary, Bourdon and Woodland CEO Cindy Watt are enjoying comparing old technology with the new. Some things change, while others stay the same. “We continually keep up with the cutting edge because that’s where my grandfather and my great-grandfather’s passion was when they were doing it,” Bourdon says. When Bourdon, 28, joined the business, his grandfather Ralph

Woodland had been retired for about 10 years. “I picked up where he left off,” Bourdon says. “I went in, dusted off the shop and started it back up.” Today he uses some of the tools his grandfather and great-grandfather Tony Woodland used. “My grandfather would have done jewellery repair with a torch and solder,” Bourdon said. “Even though I still use that today for a lot of applications because traditionally it’s still the best way to do it, I also love my heatless laser welder, which I’ve been using for four years.” The laser welder has become one of the primary tools in modern jewellery making, he explains. It doesn’t have solder in it, it’s actually a pure joint of gold. “That way the jewellery is a bit stronger and I have more control because it’s finer work done under a mi-

Geoff Bourdon carries on the family tradition as a jeweller at Woodland Jewellers Ltd. The store is celebrating 80 years in business this year. croscope,” he says. Watt says even changes in wrist watches has been fun to observe. In the beginning watches did not have batteries, and after years of using batteries, many of them are now solar.

“Technology has evolved and reverted,” she adds. Watt’s father and grandfather were watch inspectors for the Pacific Great Eastern Railway and its employees. “My dad and grand-

father used to take apart each piece, oil, remake parts, and then put them back together,” Watt says. Today the Citizen watches they sell keep on time by a radio ping to the atomic clock in Denver, Colorado. “In some of them they have a quartz crystal and the watch measures how fast it bounces back and forth,” Bourdon says. Old watches had a tuning fork that would time the vibration, whereas the new watches will regulate themselves daily. “I do use two of the original watch benches in the workshop,” he says. Compared to the past, there is a wider variety of gem stones available because new gems are always being discovered. “I have examples of things in the shop that had never been found before,” Bourdon says. Jewellery making is also more technical than it was before, the

two point out. Where old-school jewellers might have guessed about weights, today some of the alloys are measured to half a percent for how accurate they are in the mixes. Ethics in the business are also changing and Watt has seen one Canadian manufacturer change his plant to focus on manufacturing Canadian gold and diamonds. “The Canadian Diamonds and Gold program is the only one fully certifying origin and ethical practice of all gem stones,” Bourdon explains. While the store hosts four generations of cases and hand-written ledgers from as far back as the 1940s are on site, both insist some things have not changed. No matter how advanced technology is, the customer still needs someone they can trust to know they are getting what they want, Bourdon suggests.

To celebrate its 75th anniversary five years ago, the business donated a custom designed Woodland anniversary ring for a raffle in support of the Cariboo Memorial Hospital Foundation. They’ve continued ever since and to date the initiative has raised $39,000. Bourdon has designed each anniversary ring to reflect an aspect of cancer. This year’s ring is a light yellow green centre diamond. As if he’s working in a restaurant, Bourdon describes its diamonds ‘colours as cognac, champagne and chocolate. The community has always been important to the Woodland family and the hospital in particular. Tony served on the hospital board for more than 20 years and his family volunteered there for many years. Raffle proceeds go to the purchase of cancer detecting equipment.

Rya Enns’ Kindergarten class reads their poem on the school’s Poems and Pies afternoon last week.

Cataline gives thanks with Poems and Pies Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer The Cataline Elementary School gymnasium was packed with parents and relatives and all types and shapes of pies this month as the school celebrated a Thanksgiving activity called Poems and Pies. In a year of transition, this event helped to build relationships in the school community while fostering a sense of belonging, says Karla Meger the primary teacher who organized the event. Meger, like many other students and teachers, is making the transition to a new school from Kwaleen Elementary School which closed this year, along with Glendale Elementary School. “So many pies were donated that students were able to continue the Thanksgiving celebrations the next day,” Meger says. Apple, blueberry, strawberry, coconut, plus lemon meringue squares, cupcakes, cookies and every kind of neat thing people could pride themselves on were laid out on seven tables for the students, staff and visitors to enjoy, Meger says. “One lady made a sweet potato pie and it was so-ooo good,” Meger says. In addition to enjoying the treats, each participating class presented a poem or song. “Every poem can be made into a song,” Meger says. “You just have to find the right tune.” The poems were all around the fall or Thanksgiving theme,

REALTOR TIPS THE NUMBER OF DAYS ON MARKET & PRICE REDUCTIONS • Most buyers want to know “how long has this house been on the market?” They wonder if something is wrong with the home if it has been on the market awhile, or wonder if the price is too high. • A unique home such as an A frame, or log home will generally take longer on the market than atypical homes. Property on the market too long may point towards inferior marketing but mostly toward being overpriced for the market regardless of what is right or wrong with the home. • Before you make an offer on a home, it’s best to ask yourself “does price reflect what is being offered?” to avoid disappointment.

Consulting the public on highway speed limits

A

cross the p rov i n c e, our highway network provides an important service. It connects our communities, allows goods to be shipped from one region to another, and is a key part of economic development. This network, and the safety rules that apply to it, have been developed over time.

MLA Musings

with Donna Barnett

There has been a lot of discussion recently in the media about highway speed limits, and whether it

is time to update our existing rules. Our government has begun a review of highway speed limits on the long stretches of provincial highways between communities, including both a technical review and a public consultation. Beginning next month, our government will be looking for input from the

public, giving British Columbians the chance to have their say on rural highway speed limits. Some of the main topics that the review will look at include which highway corridors should be considered for speed limit changes, what should be considered a slow vehicle and where slow vehicles might be of concern,

and how we can improve safety in areas where there is the potential for collisions with wildlife. British Columbians will be able to give their input through social media and online feedback, as well as through forums to be held in Kamloops, Chilliwack, Nanaimo, Prince George, Dawson Creek, Vancouver, Kelowna and

Cranbrook. More communities may be added to this list later on. Together with input from the public, the review of highway speed limits will also look at the latest research from around the world. It will also consult with key stakeholders such as the Union of BC Municipalities, ICBC, and police.

This will form the basis for a list of practical recommendations and a strategy for implementation, which will be ready in the spring of 2014. Stay tuned for more information on how to get involved and provide your feedback next month. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.

The Love Verb “I wanna know what love is; I want you to show me. I wanna feel what love is; I know you can show me…” In 1984 Foreigner gave us a power ballad that asked the question that wanders through everyone’s mind at one time or another. “What is love?” There are many common cultural messages trying to answer this question: Love is a feeling. If you’re not feeling love, then you don’t really love your partner. If you have to question whether or not you love your partner, you obviously don’t love him/her and it’s time to walk away. You should “just know that it’s right.” If you don’t have that feeling of rightness, then it’s clearly not right. You should feel head over heels “in love”, which means butterflies and fireworks. Your partner should make you feel alive, whole, and fulfilled. And the list goes on and on… We grow up watching Disney stories and Hollywood’s celluloid interpretations of love and romance. These stories create relationally dangerous expectations that love should look and feel like it does on the big screen. And when the initial rush of feeling and certainty naturally wears off, as it always will, it’s frightfully easy to doubt that your

PARSONS PEN BY REVEREND BUBBA relationship is still a good one. Much of the confusion with love has to do with definitions. We look at love as a feeling, a warm tingly euphoric feeling. But love is NOT a feeling. Once the honeymoon wears off, love is primarily a VERB, and to love someone is an active experience, something we must intentionally do FOR our significant other. Love is action. Love is commitment. Love is doing something for your partner even when you don’t “feel” like it. Love is recognizing that intimate, committed relationships are crucibles inside which both partners will be asked to grow emotionally and spiritually and

learn about the barriers that make it difficult for them to be loving. As Alanis Morissette said in an interview, “Love, to me, is a verb. Love kicks in for real when things get hard... Love, for me, is when I don’t feel very loving. It’s an action. Love has more to do with values being the same, family, commitment, partnership, seeing marriage as a hotbed for growth and healing.” Jesus gave us the very simple command, “Love one another.” He did not say, “Fall in love with each other,” he told us to VERB love others. Love is always our responsibility. Love is about giving to others to benefit them, not to make us happy. Love keeps showing up in concrete, tangible ways for the relationship even when it’s difficult, when there’s an issue between you even when it’s not always easy, this is real love. There’s nothing drug-like or euphoric about real love. On the contrary, it’s grounded, honest, stable, and authentic. The deeper place inside of you knows that to commit to your partner is a loving choice, and so you act in loving ways even when you don’t always feel loving. Through these loving actions, you expand your heart and grow your capacity to love. This is evidence of love.

Uli Wittal (left), Mayor Kerry Cook, and Brenda Taylor get into the spirit of one of the scenes in the city’s new mural on the side of the M&M Meats and Taylor Made Cakes building on Oliver Street.

New mural a sweet treat for city Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer A beautiful new mural in the city was officially dedicated Wednesday with noon-hour treats from M&M Meats and Taylor Made Cakes. The mural, with an old-fashioned feel and old-time city names, is titled Roaring 20s and graces the side of the building occupied by both businesses. It is one of the sweetest murals to date created by lakecity muralist Dwayne Davis. The three businesses depicted in the street scene are named for old time hotels in the city that have burned down over the years — Ranch Meats, Lakeview Bakery, and the Maple Leaf Cafe. “It’s kind of an ode to some of the old hotels in the city,” says Davis, who created the theme in consultation with the business owners and painted it with the help of his student, Abbi Taylor. “It’s absolutely fantastic. The artistry is amazing,” says M&M Meats owner Uli Wittal. “I am absolutely thrilled that we were chosen for a mural.” Brenda Taylor, coowner of Taylor Made Cakes agrees. “I think it’s awesome,” Brenda says. “Everybody does and it helps to dress up

another corner of the city that people might not otherwise notice.” She says they get quite a few out-oftown customers during the summer and the mural is a welcoming scene for people entering the city on Oliver Street from Highway 97. Brenda and Uli were happily serving appetizers, and treats to customers who came by for the noon dedication which included visits from representatives of the various sponsor groups. The mural is an initiative of the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area 2013 Alley Art Mural Mentorship Project in

partnership with Davis Arts and made possible with grants from the Williams Lake and District Credit Union, Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society, Cariboo Regional District, and City of Williams Lake. Dale Taylor, coowner of Taylor Made Cakes, says the alley art project helps to keep tagging down in the community. “Artists tend to respect other artists’ work,” Dale says. BIA second vicepresident Jan Hermiston says the BIA is working to spread the mural projects around the city with the idea of creating a mural cultural walk for the

community. This is the second year for the BIA’s alley art project which won two awards of excellence from the B.C./ Alberta business association in May, says executive director Judy (O’Neill) Albin. She says one award was for sustainability, given the project’s unique approach to curbing tagging, and a second award was for partnership, in teaming up with the artist, Cariboo Friendship Centre, businesses and other groups to create the first two alley art murals for the city last

year. The Roaring 20s mural is the BIA’s third alley art mural project. A mural titled Mercantile is located in the alley side of Dena’s Studio on Third Avenue. Another mural titled A Traditional Fishing Village is located at the entrance to the Hearth Restaurant at the Cariboo Friendship Centre. Other murals created with student help are also located inside the Friendship Centre. Albin says Williams Lake is lucky to have a muralist such as Davis living in the community.

Take your tastebuds around the world It costs a lot of money these days to do some travelling. There is one way, however, where you can stay at home and enjoy the flavours from those places far away. Food. That’s it. With food we can travel around the world through our taste buds and the cost is not much. I have never been to France, but I can cook a traditional French dish that would give me reasonable taste of that which may be eaten in France. The same, of course, goes for Chinese, Thailand, Indian, Greek or other kinds of foods. The biggest problem in trying to authenticate foods from various countries is to obtain the right ingredients. I might be making

a Thai recipe and discover that I can’t buy Galanga, (a ginger type root native to Thailand) so I can either substitute with a local ginger or try a different Thai dish where all of the ingredients are available right here at home. I shop at all stores but I find Save-OnFoods is doing a pretty good job of stocking foods and spices or sauces from various countries, particularly Asian goods. Try some different cooking today. There are lots of easy dishes to cook

and a lot of time you can purchase most of the food here or elsewhere in B.C. You can take a palate trip to another country without leaving home. Let’s start with an easy dish to start with, one from the Cajun area of the United States.

matoes and sugar. Season with parsley, thyme, bay leaves, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for two-andone-half hours, occasionally stirring. Add prawns, crabmeat and sausage to stock pot. Stir in hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Add lemon juice and simmer for an additional five to 10 minutes until sausage, prawns and crabmeat are cooked. Take out bay leaves and serve. This recipe should serve four people.

Celebrating community living at Spirit Square Angie Mindus Staff Writer It may have been a cold and dreary day outside Tuesday, but the mood at Spirit Square was anything but as clients, friends and family gathered to celebrate Community Living Month. “It’s the only place I can walk in a room and 15 people come up and love me unconditionally,” said Donna Milner of why she regularly volunteers her time at the local Summit Opportunity Centre in Williams Lake to help with the chime group The Blue Notes. “That’s pretty great, you can’t find that anywhere else.” Milner was on hand Tuesday while more than a dozen members of Blue Notes happily performed their songs for staff and family associated with the Williams Lake Association for Community Living (WLACL), including residential co-ordinator for Community Living Susan Means. “We want people to know we’re here, we’re strong and we are happy to serve the people of Williams Lake,” said Means of the celebration, who acknowledged the challenges of cutbacks to the program. “The people we serve deserve the services we have to offer, and we want to be there for them.” The association is mandated to offer critical support and services in the community for adults with developmental disabilities. Trisha Deboer and her new baby Owen were at the event to support her big brother Kerry, who is a client of WLACL. “It’s definitely shaped my life growing up with a brother with special needs,” said Deboer. “I’ve had a lot of opportunities to spend time with some special

people.” Deboer said events like the one held this week and Community Living in general helps people understand more about others with disabilities, while also helping those who access its services intermingle with society. She added that her brother’s favourite times of the week are when he has his chime practice. WLACL board member Ed Kozuki said events like the barbecue are needed to create inclusion, “so everyone feels like they are an important part of the community.”

Potato House hosts city’s first Zombie Walk The Potato House Society is hosting the city’s first annual Williams Lake Zombie Walk from the Potato House to city hall on Halloween night. Participants are asked to meet at the Potato House this Halloween at 4 p.m. for the parade that will start at 4:30 p.m., says society president Mary

Forbes. She says Zombie Walks are a popular community pedestrian event founded in Vancouver and are now held around the country.  “While the Zombie theme appeals to mass culture and is quite eye catching as they stumble by, the true benefits of an event like this

is the engagement of people past the trickor-treating age to have an activity with other community members on an evening traditionally pedestrian and increasingly becoming vehicle bound,” Forbes says. “Outdoor activity and members of our community walking the streets is a win-win

situation of community health, physical health and pedestrian safety by increased visibility through sheer numbers.”  She says the Zombie Walk is a family event and invites people of all ages to participate or even stand around and watch.  “Not everyone will be dressed as Zom-

bies,” she says, “many will view this as an opportunity to show off their costumes of all types.”  “This is a very slow moving parade and I predict we will arrive at city hall around 5 p.m.,” Forbes says. “Street barricades  will be removed as the last of the zombies drag themselves past.”

In 2013, it is estimated that 23,800 Canadian women and 200 Canadian men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. There are steps men and women can take to reduce their risks of developing breast cancer. Avoiding breast cancer risk factors is the best path to prevention. *Avoid exposure to radiation. Repeated exposure to radiation therapy used to treat illnesses like Hodgkin’s disease can increase a person’s risk of breast cancer, particularly if treatments begin at an early age. *Keep a healthy weight. Obesity increases the risk of breast cancer, particularly in postmenopausal women. Healthy eating and exercise can help women control their weight while reducing their risks of developing breast cancer and a number of other diseases. *Get your exercise. Exercising four or more hours a week can lower breast cancer risk. Exercise need not be heavy lifting at the gym. Any moderate physical activity, from

cycling to walking, can be effective. Exercise decreases hormone levels in the body that can impact breast cancer risk. Some studies indicate simply walking briskly for one to three hours per week can reduce a woman’s breast cancer risk by 18 percent. * Eat a low-fat diet. The Women’s Intervention Nutrition Study from the National Cancer Institute found that the highest rate of breast cancer reduction was among a group of women who ate a low-fat diet. *Reduce alcohol consumption. Various studies have indicated that women who drink alcoholic beverages may develop cancer at a higher rate. Women who consume two to five drinks daily have a greater risk of developing breast cancer than those who abstain from alcohol. *Weigh the risks of hormone replacement therapy. There are mixed reviews on hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, for postmenopausal women. There may be a link between long-term

HRT and breast cancer, particularly when estrogen and progesterone are used in combination. Some doctors advise estrogenonly hormone therapy for women who have had a hysterectomy. *Use of SERMs and aromatase inhibitors. Selective estrogen receptor modulators, or SERMs, are drugs that act like estrogen on some bodily tissues but block the effect of estrogen on other tissues. Aromatase inhibitors decrease the amount of estrogen made by the body. Women with a high risk of breast cancer may benefit from taking a SERM or aromatase inhibitor. *Increase fruit and vegetable consumption. Carotenoids are cancerprotective pigments found in a vast number of fruits and vegetables. Researchers at New York University found women who had higher blood carotenoid levels had a significantly smaller risk of breast cancer than women with lower levels. *Go sparingly on antibiotics. Only take antibiotics when they are truly needed. New evidence suggests that the more often a woman takes antibiotics, the higher her breast cancer risk. A study of more than 10,000 women found that women who took antibiotics for the equivalent of about 25 prescriptions over an average of 17 years where twice as likely to develop breast cancer than women who never took the drugs.

Oral Cancer Screening

Those at high risk for oral cancer include Tobacco users, but anyone can develop oral cancer. The velscope is an FDA approved device we use to detect oral cancer. It is non-invasive and painless. Early detection of oral cancer is often highly curable.

Williams Lake’s Dennis Beebe rounds the 1.3-kilometre dirt track at Kamloops’ Whispering Pines Sports Complex Oct. 6 during the final race day of the Kamloops Off-Road Racing B.C. series.

Beebe sitting pretty to win off-road title Greg Sabatino Staff Writer Dennis Beebe admits he likes a challenge. Even after a mountain biking accident left him paralyzed with only the use of his shoulders and arms seven years ago, the longtime Williams Lake resident said he adapted without much of a fuss. “It was not a big, tough transition for me,” Beebe, now 41, said. “I was always a guy who liked challenges and liked to push myself so this was just a new challenge for me.” Beebe’s most recent challenge has him not only competing, but winning against able-bodied drivers in his rookie season of the Kamloops Off-Road Racing B.C. (KORRBC) series. His modified 2014 Polaris Ranger RZR 1000 XP —

equipped with a hand throttle and brake — has put Beebe contending for first overall in his UTV 1000 class. As an added test Beebe raced in the UTV 1000 Pro class where he’s sitting in solid position for a second- or third-place overall finish, despite driving a stock RZR 1000. “The difference there is UTV 1000 is a stock unit and in the UTV 1000 Pro class you can make modifications,” he said. KORRBC takes place at the Whispering Pines Sports Complex in Kamloops on a 1.3-kilometre-long track. Currently Beebe occupies the top spot in the UTV 1000 class with 164 points after the first three race weekends. The second-place driver, Travis Squair, has 134 points. Points are accumulated based on how many drivers are in the race and driver final position.

At the final KORRBC event of the season on Oct. 6 Beebe finished third out of eight drivers overall in the UTV 1000 class. “I picked up second in the first heat, third in the second heat and I was leading for seven-and-a-half laps [out of nine] in the main event but blew out a tire which put me in fifth,” he said. “That gave me third overall for the day.” Heading into the final race day in the UTV 1000 Pro series Beebe sat in fourth place. But based on a stellar performance Beebe could be propelled into second or third overall. “I’m anxious to see the final results,” he said. “I could easily leap frog into second place [in the pro class] depending on how the points go.” The final point totals, however, won’t be tallied until KOR-

RBC hosts its awards night and banquet later this year. While he waits for the final tabulation of results Beebe said he’ll continue to enjoy the outdoors with his UTV and his snowmobile with his buddies. “I’ve always been involved with the recreational side of it. It’s great,” he said. “It’s fun, I like it, it gets me out with my friends and out in the recreational world with the things that I used to do. It’s a lot of fun to push myself.” Beebe said he’d like to thank his employer, Spectra Power Sports, for supporting him throughout the season, along with Steve Durst, Derek Christiansen and Jill and Tom Wasstrom for driving him to and from the races. KORRBC also features pro trucks, pro buggies, outlaws, limited lite trucks and pro lites, on top of the UTV classes.

Seibert up for most popular driver Contributed

Special to Tribune/Advisor The Nascar Canadian Tire Series (NCATS) season came to a close Sept. 22 at the Karwatha Speedway in Fraserville, Ont., with lakecity racer Ryley Seibert completing his rookie season with a strong finish in 10th place, leaving him 11th overall in the series. Next season Seibert and his team are hoping to return to race again in 2014 and are motivated to come back stronger than ever. Throughout the 2013 season Seibert won many prestigious awards including the Dodge/Mopar-Powered Quick Three Award seven times, the VTech Free Pass Award and the Rookie of the Race award five times. These awards add to the long list of awards

Seibert has achieved through his hard work and dedication to the sport, including a scholarship to Race 101’s Racing Program back in 2010. The next honour Seibert hopes to achieve is the Nascar Canadian Tire Series’ Most Popular Driver for 2013. Every year the series hosts a ballot for fans to cast their vote for their favourite driver. As the sport is dominated by Eastern athletes Seibert is hoping his fan base will help to put a Western driver on the podium. “The fans have been very supportive of me through this season, both through the highs and lows,” Seibert said. “I’m hoping they will continue their support by casting their vote. “The Eastern provinces have huge support

for their athletes, but I’m hoping with a combined group effort we can have a driver from the west.” Seibert noted voting for him isn’t solely a vote for himself, but is also a representation of all the hard work and effort his whole team has put in over the season to have the car running. Crew chief Keenan Magnant and crew members Brendon Kohnke, Cory Price, Ryan MacLauren, Jeff Stenbacher, Julie and Les Bellai and Trevor Seibert all took time to volunteer and help Seibert through the season, despite having their own full-time careers and families. “We are a small team,” he said. “Our funding comes from local ‘ma and pa’ shops and all of our crew is comprised of dedicated volunteers. If something breaks we are the ones that have to fix

it on our own time. We don’t have the luxury of having a full-time crew whose sole purpose is to maintain the car. “A win would be a great representation of drivers and teams who still have to put on their work boots come Monday morning.” Seibert is calling on his fans to cast their votes daily until Nov. 15, 2013. Fans can cast their vote daily on multiple devices until Nov. 15 at 11:59 p.m. eastern standard time.

New recreation program supports healthy eating habits

We CanSkate

Angie Mindus photo

Evie MacDougall (far right), Darion Kroll (centre), Katie Croswell and Madden Benvin round the pylons at the CanSkate program Wednesday evening. The program is offered through the Williams Lake Figure Skating Club.


Eating Habit Busting is a brand new program for the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex this fall.  This 12-month program works on the premise that to successfully make lifestyle adjustments you need to change one thing at a time, which allows the body and mind to adjust to each modification.    In this 12-step, 12-month program, you will learn how to lose weight by healthy eating and a sustainable exercise routine. Many weight loss programs demand drastic diet changes and hard to maintain restrictions. This program will focus on gradual monthly adjustments to your diet and exercise program, one baby step at a time. There will be three

motivational lectures and every month tips and advice will be delivered via email and package pick up.  These face-to-face exchanges will be paired with optional weekly weigh-ins and a 12-month Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex membership. The theory behind the program is that it takes three weeks for the body to accept the modifications you make and the program will encourage only one change per month.  Instead of trying to exercise and diet all at once, the first month will be about focusing on exercising, three times a week. The second month, the group will track what they eat, each month will have an additional modification.   The first lecture fo-

cuses on what is happening in the brain and why it is difficult to resist high fat, high sugar food.  The annual membership can be paid monthly.  The first and last month payment must be paid when you register.  The complex membership includes a full spectrum of Aquafit and dry land fitness classes, the fitness centre, pool, and ice rink.  The annual membership also includes a personal training session with one of our BCRPA certified instructors.  There are three easy ways to register: online at www.activewilliamslake.ca; by phone at 250-398-7665, or in person at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 525 Proctor Street.

Pumpkins: more than just jack-o-lanterns October is the month for pumpkins! Pumpkins grow well in our area, and are in abundance at this time of year. When most people think of pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns and pies are usually what come to mind but these nutritious, versatile and hardy gourds can be so much more. Did you know the world’s largest pumpkin weighed in at over 1,600 pounds. Even more surprising is that in some communi-

nual pumpkin boat races. If you don’t believe me … look it up on the Internet. Like other types of squash, pumpkins are full of nutrients. Their deep orange coloured flesh is packed with beta-carotene. This is an antioxidant that helps prevent heart disease and cancer. Pumpkins are also a good source of vitamin C, potassium and fibre. Pumpkin pie is a popular treat but pumpkin can be used for so much

more. Try it in cookies, pancakes, loaves, muffins, soups and more. When choosing a pumpkin for cooking, look for one that is smaller and heavy for its size. When carving your Halloween jack- olantern be sure to save the seeds for roasting. Baked pumpkin seeds are a healthy snack and they are easy to make. Just rinse the pumpkin seeds to remove pulp then lay the seeds on a piece of paper towel to dry.

Next, put the seeds in a bowl with a bit of vegetable oil and your favourite flavouring (Mrs. Dash, seasoning salt, or cinnamon and brown sugar.) Finally, spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 350° F, stirring occasionally until light brown and crisp (about 15-25 minutes). Simone Jennings is a promotion and prevention communications officer for Interior Health.

Audio Video Unlimited’s Brian Sawyer and the Guitar Seller’s Paul Maas gear up to host the annual Audio Video Super Sale at their downtown location starting Thursday, Oct. 24 at 5 p.m.

Audio Video sale coming up Brian Sawyer and his staff at Audio Video Unlimited are gearing up for their annual Electronic Super Sale that the community has come to know and love. For close to 30 years now Sawyer has been offering the big sale, and for many of those it was held at the Overlander Convention Centre. This year Sawyer is trying something new, and is staying put at his

store at 234 Borland Street. “It’s the cost of moving for the weekend,” Sawyer says of one of the reasons he’s hosting the sale at his store downtown. “We want to pass those savings on to the customers instead. And, it’s so much more practical to have it at the store — we can offer a better service.” Part of that service means Sawyer will be able to incorporate the

business downstairs in the building, the Guitar Seller, as well. Sawyer says the Guitar Seller’s 20-year manager Paul Maas will be on hand offering deals on guitars, amps, drums and more during the sale. Sawyer says Audio Video Unlimited is the only locally owned full-line electronics store in the community, and being part of the AVU 100-store group gives him great-

er buying power which allows him to matchprice with his competitors. “We price match anyone always, and on this sale we’re even ahead of everyone on pricing.” Sawyer says he can offer his yearly deals at the Super Sale thanks to a long standing relationship with his suppliers, such as Sony, Alpine and Denon, who will also be on hand to help customers.

The Williams Lake Field Naturalists will hold their fall social and pot-luck supper tonight, Friday, Oct. 18 starting at 6 p.m. at the Scout Island Nature Centre. Members and nonmembers are welcome

to attend. Bring a dish to share and be ready to enjoy good conversation and a short armchair trip to Spain. Following the dinner new members Paula Laita and Jon Gaztelumendi from Basque Country in Northern

Spain will share some of their experiences in a presentation called Transport to Spain: A Paradise for Birders and Wildlife Enthusiasts. Spain has a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes due to

its variation in the local geography and topography and the diverse climates present in many regions. The proximity of the different habitats, especially in migration corridors, leads to a rich mixture of bird species.

Group hosts film and discussion The Williams Lake Transition Town group is hosting a film and discussion night this Monday, Oct. 21, not Wednesday as announced earlier. The film is called Back to the Garden — Flower Power Comes Full Circle, and will be begin with a discussion at 6:30 p.m. and the film starting at 7 p.m., says event spokesperson Richard Case. In the 1960s flower children were satirized and vilified for rejecting materialism and corporate culture, says the film synopsis. In the 1970s they stopped the war, started communes, urged back to the land and environmental sustainability, but by the 1980s they had virtually disappeared from everyday life. So where did all the “flowers” go? In 1988, nearly 20

years 20 years after Woodstock-Seattle filmmaker Kevin Tomlinson asked himself that question while interviewing a group of back-to-theland hippies at a backcountry healing gathering in Washington State. He found small embers of 1960s dropouts were still intact and thriving contrary to popular belief and were raising families while refining their hippie idealism-independent of a mass culture that had marginalized and all but forgotten them. “Come browse our lending library, share snacks, and join in the discussion,” Case says in inviting the community to the event. Doubtful about how seriously this would be viewed in 1988, the footage sat untouched but not forgotten for almost 20 years. In 2006, Tomlinson

took another look. What these off-grid Hippies were talking about in 1988-sustainability, living simpler, sustainable lives, love for the earth, questioning authority, self-reliance, and community responsibility-seemed to be blossoming with incredible force. The movement is coming full circle 20 years later as the impact of climate change, and unpopular war, shopping-aspatriotism and the green movement took centre stage in mainstream discussion. He set out to find his original subjects again with new questions. Had their radical offgrid lifestyles and ideals survived? Had anyone gone mainstream? What about their children-how did they rebel against the rebel generation?

If you were a Tribune Subscriber you could

The last slice I started writing Slice of Life over 22 years ago in June of 1991. I had just completed a creative writing course at the local college. We all wrote under a penname to make the group critiques more honest and perhaps less shameful to endure. I wrote the first three chapters of a heart wrenching great Canadian novel and submitted it under the oh-so-clever (or at least I thought it was clever) pseudonym of Haphpen Will Wright. The class unanimously agreed the alias was the only crafty thing about the piece. They laughed themselves sick over the tragic bits. I was mortified. At the end of the year the instructor gently told me I was prolific but lacking polish. I didn’t even know what prolific meant. Suspecting my ignorance the instructor added, “You know, like rabbits.” “Ah, I see.” I nodded, trying to look enlightened when in fact I was more confused than ever. Was she saying my writing was fuzzy? That it hopped about too much? Did it have too short of a tale? “But you’re funny,” she added. I thought about my tragic saga and the unexpected laughter it elicited from my fellow students. “I wasn’t trying to be.” I said. “No, you can’t try to be funny,” she said, not unkindly. “You either are or you aren’t.”

Slice of Life

with Shannon McKinnon

Then she snapped her fingers, leaned across her desk and said, “You should write a humour column. You know, like Erma Bombeck. Why not put together half a dozen columns and a resume and take it by the newspaper office?” That’s what she said. What I heard was, “If you take your columns to the local paper in a few months you will be syndicated, rich and famous just like Erma Bombeck.” The publisher of the paper was kind, considerate and fair minded, but I wouldn’t know that for a long time. He hid these stellar qualities beneath a crusty, gruff, exterior that terrified me. “I’m not paying you for them but I’ll run the column until you quit,” he said, indicating my small pile of columns on his desk. “You probably don’t have more than twenty in you anyhow. Do you have a name for it?” “A name?” I squeaked. He sighed. “We’ll just call it ‘Slice of Life.’ Now go stand in front of that wall and I’ll take your picture.” Every month I churned out four columns on my typewrit-

er—yes a typewriter— and drove them down to the newspaper office in an envelope. After a year the publisher said, “I never thought you’d last this long.” I feasted on that compliment for weeks to come. A few months later the paper was bought out. “They want to keep your column so I told them I was paying you,” the publisher told me over the phone. “I’m sorry I didn’t.” When I started writing my sons were four and two and Darcy and I had been married for eight years. I wrote about childbirth and seeing children off to kindergarten and then college. I wrote about gardening, weather and wildlife. I wrote about marriage, news events and life in the country. I never made the leap to fame and fortune like Erma Bombeck, but I did manage to

convince some other papers to run my column. In the end I wrote simply because I loved to write…prolifically. I have had the good luck to work for talented and supportive publishers and editors over the years and will always be grateful they made room for my trivial ramblings. I am also grateful to those who took time out of their busy day to not only read those trivial ramblings but send me a note. Most were thoughtful and kind, some constructive and a few were downright mean, but I saved them all. A few times I took a hiatus from the column when life got in the way, but I always came back. I always had more to say. Lately I catch myself telling the same stories over again and fear I am on track to becoming that person at the party that

everyone avoids. It’s time for someone with fresh stories to have a say in this space. I will continue writing for garden magazines and online athardyherbs. com, containerscape. com and peacecountrygardens.com so if you’re at all interested in gardening—or even if you aren’t--I do hope you will visit me there. In the meantime thank you so much for reading. It has truly been a slice.

With its arched windows and ornamental shutters, combined with the decorative brickwork on its façade, this two-storey, two-bedroom family home boasts plenty of curb appeal.  In keeping with the formal tone of the exterior, corner quoins punctuate the brickwork, while the remainder of the façade is finished in horizontal siding. The entry way is marked by double pilasters that lead through a covered porch to a glass-paned door flanked by sidelights.  The open-plan living/dining room is located at the front of the house, immediately opposite the spacious foyer with its handy bench and coat cupboard. The living-room window, overlooking the front garden, is fitted with an outdoor window box. A gas fireplace will warm both this room and the dining room, which also features a built-in buffet.  Beyond the foyer, across from the U-shaped stairway to the second floor, a niche will provide the ideal spot for displaying collectibles and plants. A tall arched window lights the stairway.  The family room, nook and kitchen are all situated at the back of the home. The kitchen is separated from the other rooms by a six-sided eating bar, placed on the diagonal to save space. A U-shaped counter configuration promises efficiency.  The nook and family room share a doorway to a large patio with steps leading down to the back garden. The nook enjoys a bayed out window, while the family room boasts a second fireplace and a double-height ceiling.  Tucked in between the staircase and the family room is a powder room, as well as a large pantry that is equally accessible from the dining room and the kitchen.  Upstairs, the master suite overlooks the front garden. The vaulted ceiling adds a dash of elegance. Daylight will flood into the extra-large walk-in closet through a high mullioned window. The en-suite includes a soaker tub as well as a shower stall, for a touch of spa-like luxury.
