RCMP investigate forestry bridge fire in Chilcotin Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer

The RCMP suspect prolific offenders are behind a rash of crime in the Alexis Creek area this month, while they also investigate a bridge fire at the 900 Logging Road that happened Thursday. “We continue to look at enforcement efforts to put these folks before the courts,” said Sgt. Michael Hacker of the Alexis Creek RCMP detachment. “It’s a challenging environment. Most

of these guys are identified prolific offenders who go out and commit four or five offences a night.” On Oct. 17, RCMP were advised of a fire on the forestry bridge that meets at the junction of the Taseko Lake Road and Yunesit’in (Stone) Reserve. The fire occurred around 7 p.m., Hacker said. Officers are attempting to determine the cause of the fire and while the bridge remains intact, traffic is unable to cross the bridge at this time, Hacker said.

“The main damage was primarily from heat. Any logging companies and motoring public are asked to remain clear of the area while the investigation continues.” Thursday’s bridge vandalism comes in the same month where an Oct. 3 break-and-enter at the Ministry of Forests compound on Stum Lake Road resulted in the theft of three ATVs, three pickup trucks and some power tools. So far most of the power tools and two of the ATVs have been

recovered. “Two of the pickups were green and one was white,” Hacker said. There are no suspects identified with the break-and-enter, however, Hacker said the same people in Alexis Creek who are responsible for a good percentage of the thefts and property offences are the same individuals responsible for a good percentage of theft and property offences in Williams Lake. Increased theft drives up the cost of insurance for everyone, he added.

Everyone invited to attend Project Development Forum Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Changes to Highway 97’s Carson and Toop intersections will impact the entire community, Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook said Friday as she encouraged residents to attend a public meeting slated for Monday, Oct. 28 about proposed changes. Staff from the city and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will host the meeting and answer questions from the public in a format for everyone to be engaged at one time. “The city encourages all residents to come take part in this forum as we will be discussing important road connections in our network,” Cook said. “Access to residences, businesses and the hospital affects us all.” In hopes to encourage attendance to the meeting, the city has mailed 6,000 flyers with maps and information to residents and businesses. City manager of planning and operations Geoff Goodall said configuration on the highway is the same in both options. At various open houses this past summer the options have been viewed by the

public. Goodall said the signalized intersection would be removed at Carson Drive, while Toop Road would become part of a full functional and signalized intersection. “In option one at Carson Drive we’re maintaining everything that is there today,” Goodall said. “There are some slight configuration changes with Ninth Avenue teeing into McKinnon a little differently, but it is generally the same.” What will change is the way drivers exit Carson Drive. Drivers will be able to make a right turn out onto the highway but will not be able to make a left, he explained. “If people want to go left on the highway, they will have to travel down McKinnon and onto the highway through the Toop intersection.” To turn left on Carson while travelling north, drivers will have a protected left lane due to a raised median. The median will protect vehicles from rear traffic or a headon collision, Goodall said.And the entrance to North Broadway would no longer exist, he added. In option one access to the hospital is longer and more compli-

Toop Road and Carson Drive option one

Toop Road and Carson Drive option two cated, the city noted in its flyer. Emergency vehicles using the lights must take a longer route using McKinnon and Ninth Avenue, or risk Carson Drive, which does not have controllable signals. Option two also

involves McKinnon Road and 11th Avenue, but extends to directing traffic flow down Johnson Street. “At the Toop intersection we’ve shown a direct connection on to Johnson,” Goodall said. “The movement is also changed on to

McKinnon. McKinnon becomes right in and right out.” There would also be a cul-de-sac installed on 10th Avenue so there would no longer be a connection between 10th Avenue and Johnson, he said. Hospital access

would be direct because Johnson Street provides the most direct and shortest route to the hospital from the highway, the city noted in the flyer. City council has to make a decision on how the project will link to city roads and

wants the public to view the options and weigh in. Copies of the options are also on the city’s website. The meeting will take place at the Cariboo Memorial Complex in the Gibraltar Room from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Police briefs: RCMP respond to 75 calls for service on weekend During the weekend Williams Lake RCMP responded to 75 calls for service. On Saturday, Oct. 19 at approximately 1 p.m. RCMP received a single vehicle MVI complaint from two unknown

callers. “A loud bang was heard and a vehicle was seen rolling down Mackenzie Avenue North near Pine Street,” police said. Police attended and located the lone occu-

pant driver and determined the vehicle hit the right curb, over corrected, rolled and struck a barrier on the left side of road. The driver was arrested for impaired and prohibited driving, the RCMP said, adding

the incident is still under investigation. *** At approximately 7:38 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20, RCMP received a complaint of mischief to a vehicle at 605 Carson Drive.

A caller reported there were two suspects dressed in black clothing. One suspect was wearing a leather jacket and jeans.  Perpetrators slashed the vehicle’s tires and broke the vehicle window with a rock,

then walked toward Carson Drive, police said. Police attended within a minute, but did not locate anyone matching the description of the suspects. In front of unit 12, police observed a white Chev-

rolet Blazer with its right tires slashed and front passenger window broken by a basketball sized rock. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact RCMP or call Crimestoppers.

Nurse practitioner search on Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Alexis Creek nursing station needs a new nurse practitioner (NP). The position was vacated in September leaving a gap in services for residents out west. “We’re actively recruiting for the position and if anyone knows of anyone I encourage them to get ahold of myself or Catherine Whitman, the community integration administrator for this area,”

said Interior Health’s Community Area Director Bryan Redford in Williams Lake Monday. The position is a .6 full-time equivalent and has been in place for a few years, he said. Originally the nurse practitioner worked full-time for IH while the funding came from Health Canada. “Then unfortunately after two years, Health Canada stopped funding the position,” Redford said. Instead of closing the position down, IH de-

cided to find other funding to keep it going. He said the position was stable until the nurse practitioner working there, Sandi Lachapelle, took the full-time position of NP for the new health clinic at Thompson Rivers University in Williams Lake. When the position is filled at Alexis Creek, Redford said he will be excited because it will mean there are more nurse practitioners in the region. “All of our postings

are in a hold right now because IH is looking at a budget management plan, but that doesn’t affect this position,” he said. Redford said it’s great to be living in a province that is training more NPs. While in Williams Lake Redford was also meeting with the Central Interior Rural Division of Family Practice committee. “We have a number of them within IH and this is one of them,” he said of the committee.

Our Viewpoint

The devil is in the details sides, and industrial tariffs (EU exports will be almost immediately relieved of the costs of paying tariffs when selling goods on the Canadian market estimated at $700 million Canadian per year) and the elimination of agriculture tariffs (which will hurt the dairy industry in Canada and the beef, pork and sweet corn industries for Europe but also give us greater access to European wines). One of the more worrisome aspects of the deal could be the elimination of duties relating to fisheries and expressed intent to allow more access to Canadian fish for the EU processing industry. In the automotive sector, Canada will now recognize a list of EU car standards making it easier for the EU to exports cars to Canada. One of the many positive aspects of the deal is that the EU and Canada have committed to sustainable development. Some sectors expected to take a hit in Canada include the dairy industry, as well as the pharmaceutical industry because drug companies will get longer protection for their patents, meaning lower cost generics won’t be available as early in Canada. Harper said he will be considering a federal compensation program for industries impacted by the agreement. The CETA is another signal from Harper of his intention to increase Canada’s presence in the global economy and lessen our reliance on our neighbours to the south.

t is Small Business Week this week, a reminder of how vital small business is to Williams Lake, the province, and the country. There are well over a million small businesses in Canada, making up over 98 per cent of all employer businesses and accounting for roughly half of Canada’s GDP. They are the lifeblood of our economy. The same is true in Williams Lake, and I would also like to recognize all of our local businesses, long time and new, for their dedication to community by supporting our local teams and organizations From the through the years. Mayor’s South Lakeside Drive has Chair now been paved, Kerry Cook and only cleanup work remains on the project, which also added a pedestrian/ bike lane from Hodgson Road to the Cariboo Adventist Academy. Council is proud that because of diligent strategic planning, this project could be completed without any long-term borrowing, and we’re happy to see it nearing completion. I walked the pedestrian path on Saturday … more flexible dividing posts will be added in the coming weeks. A big thank you to everyone for your patience while this important project was underway this summer and fall. Council had a good discussion with Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation John Rustad recently, and we discussed a number of important topics. We shared our ongoing work on reconciliation, our recent Orange Shirt Day and our Community Forest partnership with the Williams Lake Indian Band. We also discussed continued skills training opportunities for First Nations, and our support for moving forward on Memorandums of Understandings with First Nations communities. Please mark your calendars. A joint meeting with the Ministry of Transportation to discuss the changes on Highway 97 North near Carson Drive and affecting side streets such as Johnson, Toop, and McKinnon will be held at 7 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room on Monday, Oct. 28. I want to encourage everyone to come out to this meeting and hear the presentations and have your questions answered. Large maps are set up in the City Hall lobby so you can view this important project. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Scientists cherry picking agreeable climate change data Editor: Even though there has been no global warming in 16 years the United Nations Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change still believes and states we are in imminent peril of dire consequences on a massive scale because of man-made global warming. How do they arrive at this farfetched conclusion? They depend on computer models which produce scenarios. All their models had predicted a range of modest but uncomfortable warming to intense heat stroke roasting temperatures similar to those experiences by a Thanksgiving turkey roasting in the oven. None of their super computer projections were close. The so-called climate gate papers revealed UNIPCC skullduggery, they routinely lied, suppressed or destroyed in convenient communications from reputable scientists who were skeptical.

They published statements from non-scientific sources such as the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) that the Himalayan glaciers would all be melted by 2035. Satellite images show the ice accumulation has grown in the last 10 years which befuddles their so-called scientists. Their favoured “scientists,” who are scientific diletantes, manufacture totally false data such as the infamous hockey stick graph and then congratulate each other for trucking a gullible public. Canadian author Donna La Framboise has meticulously documented how the UNIPCC has become staffed by a politically correct collection of non-scientific environmental activists who think exaggeration and fabrication are permissible to promote their agenda. They cherry pick agreeable data and hire like-minded friends. The UNIPCC must take everybody for fools. Belief that is impervious to evidence is faith, not science. They have a blind faith in the

infallibility of their bias and imagination. The National Snow and Ice Data Center website states Antarctic ice has grown to a record-large extent for the second straight year. The amount of ice today is the highest since records started in 1978. This baffles scientists also. What we see is the normal ebb and flow of climate and the gross exaggerations of warming by myopic climate scientists who are at odds with reality. Australia has just elected a wise prime minister who has stated man-made global warming is complete garbage and has scrapped their carbon tax. Hopefully, Premier Christy Clark will say the same. Unfortunately, some people suffer climate change derangement syndrome. Relax, the skeptic or denier view coincides with what’s really happening in the world.

Today, small businesses make up 98 per cent of the businesses in our province. They employ more than a million British Columbians, provide a wide range of services, and make an enormous contribution to our provincial economy. Our government is helping small businesses grow and succeed by lowering the small business corporate income tax, increasing the number of government contracts that go to small businesses, and expand-

Celebrate small business in Williams Lake this week This week, from Oct. 20 to 26, is National Small Business Week across Canada, coinciding with Small Business Month here in B.C. Small businesses make a very important contribution to our communities, from creating jobs to donating to local causes, and I can’t think of a better time to celebrate everything they do for us. Before becoming a city councillor and MLA, I served as the executive director of the Quesnel and District Chamber of Commerce, as president of the British Columbia Chamber Executives, and as director of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. I saw first-hand all the hard work and passion of entrepreneurs and small business owners in our communities, who often work long hours to make their businesses succeed.

ing the mobile business license program. This allows mobile businesses like contractors and caterers to work across participating local governments. Here in Williams Lake, the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce represents local businesses by providing services, leadership, and benefits for its members, and by providing a voice for the business community. I always enjoy speaking with local business leaders, and I am looking forward to meeting with the Williams Lake Chamber at the end of this month. This week, let’s celebrate our entrepreneurs — visit a small business and buy local today! Coralee Oakes is the MLA for Cariboo North and is the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Things that go bump in the night This month always reminds me of unusual things that happen to people but are not often shared. I’ve had a couple in my life and October seems like a good month for them to be told. From the time I can remember, living in my grandmother’s house meant that we all knew our long-deceased grandfather still wandered around and not to be worried about it. All the grandkids heard footsteps come up the stairs at night and go into the bedroom where my grandfather passed away. The sound was very clear and everyone heard it but only a few of us thought it was more interesting than scary. We would often find his old rocking chair gently moving back

and forth in the parlour, too, where he used to spend hours reading. It was just a part of life then but, now, when I think about it, I guess it was a bit unusual. Once, I had a dream about an old friend who, in the dream, was sleeping in our dining room and sat up to say “Hi” as I walked by (in the dream). I hadn’t heard from or about this fellow in over 15 years but the morning after that dream, out of the blue, he called to tell me he had returned to live in

met. He drove directly to the top of a mountain “to see the view,” he said. As we sat on a large pile of forested trees, I remembered I had forgotten my camera in the car and he just leaped up to get it for me. Something made me quickly decline the offer and hurry to the car myself. I felt strongly that I wanted to leave immediately but it took some fast talking to get him to go. I am pretty sure it was a good instinct because, when we got down the mountain and he opened the trunk of his car, I saw a large pile of assorted guns and knives. He said he was a collector — indeed! Halloween is always a good time to experience unusual things —

enjoy! Colleen Crossley is a freelance columnist with the Tribune/Advisor.

When I rolled my car on black ice some years ago, I came to an upright position, dazed, but sure that my mother and aunt (long since gone) were comforting me by gently stroking my cheeks. The roof had been ripped off the car and big snowflakes were falling on me but I could distinctly feel the warm caresses of their fingers, not the coolness of the snowflakes, and I was sure they had come to help me stay calm. It worked! I’ve had many occasions where some sort of sixth sense has prevented me from doing something ­— a strong feeling that almost physically stops me.

Prescribed burns underway for Chilcotin Prescribed burning will take place in several areas west and south of Williams Lake between Oct. 17 and Oct. 31, weather conditions permitting, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations said. Originally the ministry had planned to conduct the burns earlier in the season however wet and moist weather hampered efforts, said Hugh Flinton of the ecosystem restoration range branch. The branch is managing the burns to help restore native grassland ecosystems, he said. Areas to be treated include approximately 220 hectares at Beecher’s Prairie located on Highway 20 at the Toosey turnoff, 150 hectares at Bald Mountain, south of Riske Creek, 100 hectares at Deer Creek near Alexis Creek, approximately 3,000 hectares at Crow’s Bar in the Fraser River area, south of Dog Creek, and approximately 400 hectares at Ward Creek, also in the Fraser River area, north of Gang Ranch.

from the early 1950s, BC Parks has drawn up a 50-year plan to reintroduce controlled burning in the Churn Creek Protected Area to restore its grasslands. The fire crew supervisor (the “burn boss”) is responsible for ensuring that initial burning and wind conditions are favourable and that the fire is fully extinguished once the prescribed burning is completed. Public safety will be the top priority during these controlled burns. Each fire will be ignited and monitored by trained firefighting crews to ensure that it does not spread beyond its planned size.

For the first time there will be a Premier’s People’s Choice Award that will be part of a series of nine small business awards this year. “The people’s choice award will go to a small business in a community that their community thinks they’ve gone above and beyond,” said Naomi Yamamoto, Minister of State for Tourism and Small Business. After a business is nominated, it will be up to the business to rally community support to vote for them on the Internet. “They don’t even have to be a hugely successfully business,” Yamamoto said. “It’s more about that business and the commu-

nity.” Without that business owner in town, there might not be an extra hockey coach or a community foundation member, she suggested. “We need to recognize the importance of small business in our communities and we know that when small businesses do well and feel supported, the community does well.” Small business people just don’t run businesses, they give so much back to the community, she added. The deadline for nominating is Nov. 30 and the formal awards will take place in February 2014. More information is available at: www.smallbusinessbc. ca/general-business/ s m a l l - bu s i n e s s - b c awards-open-nominations-and-voting.

Gov’t committed to small business: Yamamoto Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer B.C.’s Liberal Government wants to increase the amount of business it does with small business by 20 per cent, said Naomi Yamamoto, Minister of State for Tourism and Small Business. “We’ve appointed a senior official within government as an assistant deputy minister, George Farkas, who will lead consultations with small businesses and with government ministries,” Yamamoto

said. The consultations are aimed at increasing the amount of business small businesses can sell to government, she added. Farkas began his consultations on Vancouver Island on Thursday, will do three more in October, and in November has more sessions planned. The closest one to Williams Lake was in Prince George on Oct. 21. “He will be making sure he reaches all areas of the province in that consultation,” Yama-

moto said. Government is also examining how it can improve awareness of resources available for small businesses. As a former small business owner, Yamamoto said small business people often don’t know what they don’t know. “We want to make sure we use the networks through the chambers of commerce and Small Business B.C. to let business owners know about what we have available for them.”

Another initiative is the mobile business license. “I don’t know if this applicable to your area, but we just celebrated a successful agreement in the Lower Mainland,” she said. “If you are a small business owner and you have a business that’s mobile you would normally have to buy a business license to operate in every community you do business in.” For a small premium plus one basic business license, those mobile businesses operating in places like Richmond

Small Business Small Business Week October 20th - 26th

CELEBRATING SMALL BUSINESS OCTOBER 20-26, 2013

Chamber encourages business support Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer As B.C. celebrates Small Business Week, the BC Chamber is challenging municipalities to support local small businesses. “It’s easy to pay lip service to supporting small businesses, but what this sector really needs is some tangible relief from its tax and administrative burden,” said John Winter, president and CEO of the BC Chamber of Commerce. “As B.C. celebrates Small Business Week, we’d urge municipalities to show their support for small businesses in ways that count: through spending restraint, low business tax multipliers and by adopting policies that encourage economic growth.”

Chap’s

Agreeing with Winter, Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce president Jason Ryll said it is encouraging municipalities, including Williams Lake, are continuing to work to help strengthen small business. “We know by the provincial and federal numbers that small business makes up 98 per cent of businesses in Canada,” Ryll said. On a local scale, it’s more important than ever for municipalities to help businesses to stay in operation and continue to grow, he added. “Williams Lake chamber and the city have a good working relationship. It’s one that’s still in need of constant nurturing and I think it will always be that way.” Ryll said he appreciates

the approach of the city’s new chief executive officer, Darrell Garceau, and his attitude toward working

with the chamber and the business community to help keep small business strong. Winter said due to dif-

ferent tax rates, B.C.’s businesses pay multiple times the property tax bill that a resident would on an equivalent size of property. The amount by which a resident’s tax rate is multiplied to generate the business tax rate is called a business tax multiplier. “While some B.C. municipalities have made strides in recent years on lowering these multipliers, B.C.’s worst-offending communities are still exacting four or five times more tax from small businesses than they would from residents on an equal-sized property.” Tax rates are always a contentious issue for businesses, however Ryll said the rates in Williams Lake are competitive to similar-sized communities. “I think that means the

municipality and businesses are headed in the right direction, to be competitive.” The BC Chamber’s call for property tax relief for small business and for business-friendly policies aligns with a recent UBCM report’s call for municipalities to partner with local businesses to foster economic development, Winters added. On Oct. 28, the Williams Lake chamber is offering a workshop with Fortis BC on developing energy efficiencies. And on Oct. 31, the chamber will hold its AGM, and hear from guest speakers Coralee Oakes, Minister of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development and BC Chamber of Commerce Chair James A. Belsheim.

Auto Body is

now

Chap’s Fix Auto Collision: doing it the right way Brent and Darlene Graham, owners of Chap’s Fix Auto Collision, said they are truly glad to be members of the business community in Williams Lake. The husband and wife team purchased the business two years ago. “We are working to make sure the customer is well looked after, and the customer is satisfied, “ Mr. Graham says. Chap’s Fix Auto Collision is a network of more than 200 body shops across Canada, specializing in the collision repair business. “We offer a national warranty on our work, so if you move to another community your guarantee is honoured at any of the locations,” Brent said. Carrying one of the only full frame racks in the city, Chap’s Fix Auto is equipped to handle the job. The staff at Chap’s Fix Auto Collision are constantly keeping up with the latest technology to make sure vehicles are being repaired the correct way. “We’re always trying to improve and give our customers the best quality of work possible,” the owner responded. “We’re driven to make the experience a favourable one for the client. We go out of our way to make it convenient for the customer.”

After its first year and a half of being in business, Taylor Made Cakes was validated this summer by winning the Northern B.C. Best Desserts People’s Choice Award. “That was kind of cool,” says owner Brenda Taylor. As she looks back she says business is building slowly but surely. “It takes a while for people to realize that we are here.” From the get-go, Taylor has made everything from scratch without using any mixes. “Our bread is made the way you would make it at home,” she says. “We add the eggs, flour, yeast, and try to make products that are basic.” Taylor’s work day begins by 4:30 a.m. with bread making. “Our sourdough bread starters sit for three days before being used,” she adds. In September Taylor attended Canada’s Baking and Sweet Show in Toronto to take classes and see what products are available. “One challenge I have found is where to get supplies, mostly cake decorating supplies,” Taylor says. “Wholesale is often more expensive than retail.” On the community side, the bakery donates every week to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for its community meals, to school PACs if they are looking for something. Many community events feature Taylor Made treats for the tasting.

Baked For You FRESH BAKED GOODS GLUTEN AND LACTOSE “Homemade”, it’sFREE ourAVAILABLE motto Since July, friends and co-owners Sandi LeRoy and Brenda Rowley have been having a blast together baking up a storm at their new business Baked For You. “It’s fun here every day,” says Sandi. That fun has translated into good homemade foods for their customers, who can enjoy breads and buns baked fresh daily, desserts, sandwiches and even preserves and canning, such as pickles, jams and salsas. Brenda says they also cook their own meat for their sandwiches and make their own soups from scratch. “We don’t like to use any preservatives,” Brenda says. Because of Sandi’s own dietary restrictions (she is gluten intolerant), customers can also enjoy an array of glutenfree and lactose-free products as well as food selections for diabetics. “I don’t have a problem not eating what I cook,” Sandi laughs about the irony of a gluten-intolerant person owning a bakery. Sandi says there is always a gluten-free option for lunchtime, including sandwiches, and customers can also purchase homemade frozen meals such as lasagna and shepherd’s pie. Baked For You has seating for six and is located at 360 Mackenzie Avenue. Though only opened since July, Brenda says business is certainly picking up. “We are seeing new faces every day and that makes me happy.”

Offering Office & Art Supplies for 35 Years Haines Office World has a brand new location in downtown Williams Lake. Haines moved in June from First Avenue to Hodgson Mall next to the Bank of Montreal and continues to be operated by Marilyn Haines, daughter of company founder Bruce Haines. Marilyn, who has been the sole owner for 10 years, is proud to say that she has the best selection of art supplies in the entire Cariboo and is also the only office supplier who will personally design and deliver an office for customers. She will go to the business, work with them to select furniture and supplies, make the order, then set up the office when the supplies arrive. Since most of their suppliers are located in Vancouver and Toronto, Haines can most often offer customers overnight service. A little diversity is also appreciated by customers. Haines sells Brother printers and calculators; computer accessories such as keyboards and wireless mice; has competitive prices on inkjet and laser copier supplies; and provides copying, laminating and binding services. They also have catalogues for ordering personalized wedding stationary.

BREAKING NEWS

An appeal from KERMIT the FROG. “Over the course of the past ten years, a number of residents have gone missing from the Costume Corner (bottom of Fox Mountain) where we live. Miss Piggy and l are concerned that these disappearances may be the work of a serial-type criminal, and we are appealing to the public for help in locating our friends. Piggys friend Jasmine was the first we lost, Sasquatch and The Kokanee Ranger left together one afternoon... and never returned. Little Red won’t stop rummaging through boxes looking for her Granny. Please help us... we only want them back where they belong. As well, a number of personal items belonging to others who live here, are nowhere to be found... including my own left foot. Charles Lindbergh can’t fly without his leather helmet, Twiggy refuses to come out from the closet since her go-go boots have gone-gone, and Wonder Woman insists her invisible airplane is not where she left it. Working in conjunction with the Keystone Kops, Judge Judy and the newly formed ”S.P.C.C.O.C.A” (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Cool Old Clothes & Accessories), Kermit and Piggy urge the public to go through their closets, basements and garages systematically. Jasmine, Sasquatch and Granny may hide where they feel comfortable... among old hats, platform shoes or high school style hot-pants. “Our old friends may never be found, but we are always happy to welcome new ones... this is a great place where we are all able to live among our peers and be useful well into our “Golden Years”. We live life to the fullest here, and though time DOES seem to fly while we’re having fun, we decided long ago to embrace a different saying...

Funeral Home, Crematorium and Serenity Gardens

Compassionate Care Funerals is dedicated to treating every person with dignity. “When someone dies, no matter who they are, we treat everybody with the same dignity and respect that we wish we could be treated with if it was us,” manager Ron Malmas says.

The community of Williams Lake has been so supportive and is loving all the new styles I have to offer. In my opinion shopping should be a fun and rewarding gift for yourself. I wanted  a store that any age woman that walks in will walk out feeling  good having found what she needed for the everyday or special occasion. I’m trying to make shopping easy. You can even shop from home - visit my  Face Book page fb.com/Darlawearfashion or my website www.darlawear.com.

In the 21st century, funeral homes must be prepared to provide various ways for people to honour their loved ones. Compassionate Care offers traditional funerals, memorial funeral celebrations and celebration teas. At the teas, someone might stand up and talk about the deceased, or people might share stories among themselves at their tables, Malmas adds. “We celebrate and honour the person by gathering together.” There are also a wide variety of burial options, including garden burials in the cremation garden. “You can actually have tea and coffee out there if it’s nice weather.” Since he was six years old Malmas wanted to be a funeral director. “It was a desire that burned in my heart,” he recalls. “I hadn’t even been to a funeral but I knew I had to care for people who could no longer care for themselves.”

Pam’s Place

Everythin g Made from Scr atch (on site)

As Pam King approaches her twoyear anniversary of owning Pam’s Place on Mackenzie Avenue she says she has no regrets. “It’s been awesome,” King says. After working for and eventually buying the store from Tom Barr, King knocked out a wall and doubled her floor space. And she’s been crazy busy ever since. “I am here at 2 a.m. baking pretty much everything except bread and cooking because by 5 a.m. customers are showing up,” King says. Estimating that 95 per cent of her clientele are industrial workers, King has developed a menu of hot lunches and baked goods. Workers heading to the mines arrive first, followed by mill workers and truck drivers. Then there’s the shift changes and people heading home who stop in. King makes lasagna and bacon cheese wrapped hotdogs every day and has customers from Quesnel who drive down to buy any frozen lasagna she may have in the store. The lasagna contains Italian sausage from Rodear Meats, and is the same meat she uses to make sausage patties for breakfasts. Other daily specials include chicken chow mein, chicken pot pie, cabbage rolls and perogies — all made from scratch. “I sell those frozen too,” she adds.

MODULAR HOMES A GREAT OPTION FOR A MODERN WORLD Heading into retirement, just starting out, or living on a limited budget, a modular home may be just what you need. Modular homes are becoming more popular than ever these days as people of all ages seek economy and stability in a troubled Steve Paterson financial world. For the baby boom generation a modular home park can be just the right size home from which one can lock up and go travelling. Since 1979 Bob Paterson Homes in Williams Lake has been providing a wide variety of modular home options for people. From start to finish, Bob Paterson Homes takes care of its customers helping them to select a suitable design and finishings, to relocations, installations and hook-up. “We are committed to making sure that the details of moving into your new home are taken care of,” says Steve Paterson. “Some of the services we offer are roof sealing, re-levelling, power washing, vinyl skirting, stairs, and miscellaneous service and repairs.’ Bob Paterson Homes also teams up with realtors and developers to help customers find just the right location for their new home, be it on a private lot or one of the existing or new modular home parks currently being developed. Bob Paterson Homes is currently working to provide homes for the new Scenic Place in 100 Mile House and Deer Park Terrace in Williams Lake. Deer Park Terrace has 18 lots in the first phase of this quiet location close to the golf course with spectacular city views and some lake view lots. The site is on the city bus route, close to shopping and a community garden and RV parking will be available. Snow removal and lawn care are included in low monthly strata fees.

A wide selection of quality shoes and old-fashioned personalized service has kept Walk-Rite Shoes in business for 63 years, the last 36 years under the guidance of Marion Mortensen. “I knew I wanted my own business and I loved shoes so when this opportunity came about I just knew that was what I wanted,” Marion says. Marion bought Walk-Rite from the original owners John and Edie Borkowski and without knowing anyone here moved from Victoria to Williams Lake to take over the business. “I didn’t know the difference between a shoe and a slipper,” Marion says. “I did have bookkeeping and then just learned.”

For the past seven years Eloquence has made their clients feel and look their best with a full array of spa and salon options. In the salon, Eloquence offers designer cuts, styles, personalized colours, texture services, updos and extensions.

Over the years Marion has built her business by providing personalized service and supplying a wide selection of comfortable, fashionable shoes for men and women, at affordable prices. She carries many popular brands – Dansko, Naot, Mephisto, Birkenstock, Clarks, Rieker, Merrell, Blondo, Keen, Sketchers, Miz Mooz, Clarks, Canadian made moccasins and more. She also carries a wide variety of accessories – wallets, bags, socks, gloves, etc. Her personalized service includes fitting for problem feet, and making special orders where she can. “My sales people have always told me I am one of the largest independent shoe stores in all of Western Canada,” Marion says. “That’s something for us to be proud of in Williams Lake.” After 36 years in business, Marion is now quietly looking to sell Walk-Rite to someone who will carry on the tradition of providing quality shoes and service. She and her husband, John, are retiring in Williams Lake, but are looking forward to enjoying more free time for their hobbies, volunteering, taking trips to visit family, and spending time in a hot country such as Spain or Mexico. “I’d love to live in a Spanish speaking country long enough to pick up the language,” Marion says. “I have lots of hobbies and I am not going to be bored for a minute.”

Owner Laura Lachapelle is herself a stylist and also a colour correction specialist with more than 20 years of experience in the salon and spa industry.

Where best friends & best fashions meet And BFF Fashions has something for every woman whether she is 25 or 65 years old says owner Jennifer Bremner. “We have lots of tunics, leggings and sweaters,” Bremner explains. “Cardigans short, long and in between are the fashion statement.” And while black is always the staple colour, emerald green has been the surprise colour of the year.  “It’s just beautiful,” Bremner says of the colour. Born and raised in Williams Lake, Bremner opened the store in 2006 on First Avenue and relocated a year ago to the corner of Oliver and Second Avenue. And the new location is fantastic, she adds. “We’re really busy. It’s location, location, location. We have tons of out-of-town business and we’re growing and growing exponentially with the move and everything.” Customers come from everywhere in the province, she says. “They come from Prince George, 100 Mile House, Quesnel and everywhere.” Bremner says it goes amiss how much businesses donate to the community. In 2013 she donated more than 137 give-aways to clubs and organizations. “It’s time businesses got credit for that. Often people will come in to collect a donation and tell us they’ve never been in the store before,” she says chuckling.

Wiseowl Toys has been a staple in downtown Williams Lake for more than a decade now, with owners Sandy and Jim Fehr celebrating their 11th anniversary this October. The store, which offers quality toys, games and puzzles, is the largest independent mom and pop toy shop in the Cariboo and is located at 190 A Oliver Street. Sandy says the idea for the store came to the couple when they were looking at another means to keep her husband Jim, who worked for a contractor, home with their family. She says the store was the perfect fit because they felt a toy store was needed in the community and Sandy also believes in quality toys and the importance of toys in learning. The Fehr’s business philosophy is three-fold; treat everyone the way you would like to be treated, give back to the community that supports you, and to shop local to support business. Through the store, the Fehr’s sponsor local sports teams and also contribute to a number of other community activities throughout the year such as the family festival, the children’s festival and the downtown street party. This past summer has been rather eventful for the family and the store. The Fehr’s oldest son was married in July to Amanda and Sandy broke her shoulder badly, so the staff at Wiseowl Toys including Chantal, Warran and Crystal stepped up to take care of the store for the past ten weeks with the help of Jim on his days off. If it wasn’t for them the store would have closed for the summer. Orders are flying in for Christmas right now, after a slight delay due to Sandy’s accident, and she says she can’t thank people enough for all the support. Other exciting news at the store is that Chantal is a grandmother to a beautiful baby girl and we are excited for her. Congratulations Paul and Paulette.

Newcombe

Williams Lake Acupunture & Herbs Clinic

C on str u c ti on Ltd.

Improved quality of life and the friendly small-town feel of Williams Lake is what attracted the award-winning construction company of Newcombe Construction Ltd. and its owners to relocate to the Cariboo this past summer. Now its owners, Mike Fraser and Kathie Vilkas-Fraser and their two children Madison and Aidan, are making a home for themselves here, while they build and improve upon the homes of others. “We’re really excited to be here and to get to know the community,” says Mike, president and general contractor for Newcombe Construction. His wife Kathie, who is in charge of the day-to-day operations of the company, says she is excited about the new opportunities that lie ahead for their family and believes the community will welcome Mike’s strong work ethic. “Mike takes the time to meet with each and every customer, understand their needs and works with them throughout the entire construction process,” she says. Mike is a fully licensed and insured journeyman carpenter with more than twenty years experience, specializing in residential and commercial renovations and construction. He has a firm belief that ongoing communication with the customer, in addition to organization and efficiency on his part are vital to a smooth and timely completion of projects. Mike says he takes extra time to develop a complete and thorough estimate so there are no surprises for customers at the end of the job. “Integrity and honesty are of great importance to me, as well as ongoing communication throughout the entire building process,” says Mike. Newcombe Construction can handle projects of all sizes from decks, landscaping and one-room renovations to large residential and commercial renovations and construction. Mike is a past president and director of the Canadian Home Builders Association - Northern B.C. and has won multiple awards for his work, both commercial and residential. Newcombe has been in operation since 1975 in Prince George. Mike started working for Newcombe in 1994 as an apprentice and has been working hard ever since to build a solid reputation with his clients. The couple then purchased the company in 2005. For any of your building needs, give Mike a call at 250-302-2524 or check out their website at newcombeconstruction.com.

New mobile vet service available in Williams Lake Dr. Carolyn Walsh has been a veterinarian in Williams Lake and the surrounding area for the past 12 years. “I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 and over the years I have worked in several veterinary hospitals in B.C. including Merritt, 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, Quesnel, Prince George and Dawson Creek, which has given me a wide range of experiences to draw from,” Dr. Walsh says. In 2002 Dr. Walsh opened Chinook Veterinary Services — a mobile veterinary service for remote communities in the Chilcotin-Coast that would otherwise be without veterinary services. Dr. Walsh has recently expanded her services to provide mobile small- and large-animal services to the Williams Lake area. Dr. Walsh said her availability for appointments is flexible and she can accommodate to her clients’ needs. “It’s been nice for people who prefer services at home,” Dr. Walsh says. “It gives people another option. Some people and their pets have limited mobility or their pets get very anxious in a hospital setting. It’s very convenient.” For more information on the range of services provided go to the website at wlakemobilevet. com.

People wanting beauty treatments in a non-toxic environment will feel right at home with the spa services offered by Adorn and Beauty Naturally. Joanne Lang has owned the business for five and a half years and says everything they do from manicures to pedicures, facials or body wraps, is done naturally. And more recently electrologist, Anna Maria joined the Spa team. Business is going well, and Lang anticipates it will continue to expand. “We’re busy and still have room to expand once we’re finished some renovations.” Spas continue to be attractive because they are an affordable luxury in one’s home town. That doesn’t require a passport, Lang says. No matter what season, the Adorn and Beauty Naturally is steadily busy year-round. Depending on the time of year, people want different services. “In the summer we do tons of pedicures because everybody’s exposing their toes,” Lang explains. In fall in winter, it’s more about relaxation, and many people want massages. Often customers tell the staff the atmosphere is relaxing and comforting. That’s satisfying because they’ve tried to make the spa a soothing place to be, Lang says. “I love dealing with people and making them happy, so it’s nice to be in a job where I can do that all day long.” The spa is located at 240B Oliver St. and is open Mon. to Sat. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., With evening appointments available upon request.

Life’s Salt Jar Warehouse celebrates first year anniversary Life’s Salt Jar Warehouse is celebrating its first anniversary in Williams Lake this Saturday, Oct. 26. “We are celebrating our great customers with cake and 10 per cent off all regular items,” says society founder and president Sherry Cuthbertson. Life’s Salt Jar is a registered not-forprofit society that opened September 11, 2012. The thrift store is located at 1-25 Fourth Avenue South across from Safeway. “We saw the need for another not-forprofit thrift store in

our community,” Cuthbertson says. “We are 100 per cent not-for-profit so after all of our bills are paid, funds go to other not-for-profit groups that don’t receive funding.” She says proceeds raised for charitable giving, after expenses are paid, depend

on support from the community which has been very good so far. A second goal of the society is to reduce the load on the local landfill by promoting more recycling. They were taking clothing by the truckload from the Share Shed and sending it

overseas (before it was popular). They could see the need to recycle in our community; the flip side was being able to support some local groups in need so they formed the society. The society accepts donations of clothing, furniture, household goods and small appliances. “Our philosophy is that we all matter in this world and sometimes we need a hand up, or a place to belong. That is why we stand by ‘Local people supporting local needs’.” Cuthbertson says.

Williams Lake Bantam Female Timberwolves’ goaltender Tamara William thwarts a scramble in front of her net Sunday while Ali Waterhouse and Faith Outhouse look to help her out in support. The Timberwolves are looking forward to beginning its first season in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association this Saturday against Penticton at 4 p.m. in Williams Lake.

T-wolves to open OMAHA season Saturday Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Members of the Williams Lake Bantam Female Timberwolves rep squad know they’ll be in for a test this Saturday when they play their first ever game as members of the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association. The Timberwolves will join Kelowna, Penticton, Kamloops, Vernon, Castlegar and Prince George in the OMAHA with the T-wolves kicking off its season this Saturday at 4 p.m against Penticton at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Head coach Troy Weil, who’s been with the girls for the past three years, said he’s looking forward to showing off the progress his players have made. “It’s nice to see the results after three years of hard work,” Weil said. “We’ve got three solid lines, all three can score and they’re all friends off the ice. It’s just a great group of girls.” The T-wolves are coming off a weekend exhibition split against

Williams Lake Bantam Female Timberwolf Brooke Call fires a shot on net Sunday during a 2-0 exhibition home loss to Prince George. The previous day the T-wolves captured a 3-1 win. Prince George — a 3-1 win Saturday and a 2-0 loss Sunday — in Williams Lake, and showed promising results at a tourna-

ment in Chilliwack facing some of their OMAHA competition earlier in the month. Netminder Tamara William,

Weil said, was stellar in Saturday’s win over Prince George. “That’s a ‘AAA’ seven-team league and it’s high-calibre girls hockey,” Weil said. “I think the previous two years we had trouble getting wins and it’s nice to see the third year we’re competing against the province’s best teams and winning.” At the tournament in Chilliwack Weil said the T-wolves picked up wins over Kelowna and Kamloops but lost to Vernon in the tournament semifinal. Players Kassidy Herrick and Hallie Fisher, both 13, said they’re excited to get the season underway. “It will be a good test to see how our level compares to the other teams,” Herrick said. “It’s going to be better,” added Fisher. “Better competition and more games.” So far this season the Twolves are scheduled to travel to five out-of-town tournaments. On top of that the girls will play 24 league games in the OMAHA.

The Men’s Recreational Basketball season runs from October to March, on Wednesday and Sunday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m. Games are held in the Western Campus gym (CSS). Pickup play began Oct. 2. Everyone aged 14 and older is welcome. To participate or for more information call Martin Kruus at 392-6664.

Williams Lake Stampeders defenseman Brent McIsaac drives to the net on Quesnel goaltender Ryan Manderson during a 6-4 win Friday night in Williams Lake.

The Williams Lake Stampeders took three of a possible four points at home last week facing the always feisty Quesnel Kanagroos. Friday night at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex marked the first meeting between the two clubs since last year and both clubs picked up right where they left off. Scoring during Friday’s tilt seesawed back and forth throughout the game, with Williams Lake’s

Tyrel Lucas (2-0-2), Matt Lees (1-0-1), Brent McIsaac (1-2-3) and Jassi Sangha (2-13) beating Quesnel netminder Ryan Manderson in the 6-4 win with Sangha providing the game winner at 13:44 of the third period. Providing scoring for Quesnel were Nick Tomassetti (1-1-2), Paul Girodat (1-0-1), Waylon Heureux (1-01) and Curtis Gassoff (1-1-2). Williams Lake’s Justin Foote was awarded the win between the pipes stopping 30 or 34

shots in the contest. On the other end Manderson turned aside 41 of 46 shots on goal in the losing effort. Saturday’s game, heading into the third period, was deadlocked at 4-4 with Stampeder goals coming from Francis Johnson, Tyler Fuller, David Gore and Sangha. Quesnel, however, would send the hometown crowed home stunned to pot the game winner with 11 seconds left in the overtime frame. With the three-point

weekend Williams Lake, in five games this season, has amassed a 3-1-1 record and is in first place in the Central Interior Hockey League’s East Division with seven points. The Kangaroos occupy the second spot in the division at 2-3-0 on the campaign with the Lac La Hache Tomahawks in third place at 1-3-0. Williams Lake heads to Quesnel this Saturday for the rubber match with the Kangaroos. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. at the Twin Ice Arenas.

Coy Cup fundraiser meeting goes tonight Several Williams Lake Stampeders volunteers will be hosting a Coy Cup dinner and auction fundraiser meeting tonight in Williams Lake. John Margetts, Willie Dubray and Fred Manchur, all volunteers with the hockey club, are organizing the meeting for tonight, Oct. 23, at CJ’s Southwestern Grill starting at 7 p.m. The defending Coy Cup Stampeders have applied with BC Hockey to host this year’s senior men’s ‘AA’ Coy Cup provincial championship in Williams Lake and the volunteer committee is looking to gauge potential volunteer interest for both the dinner and auction coming up Nov. 16 and the potential Coy Cup tournament.

“Basically we want to have this meeting because we’re looking for help to put on the dinner and the auction and to fundraise for the possibility of

the Coy Cup coming to town,” Margetts said. The dinner and auction planned for Nov. 16 will be hosted at the Williams Lake

Curling Club, Margetts said. For more information, or if you have any questions, call Margetts at 250-3922363.

Blue Fins make waves in Prince Rupert Twelve members of the Williams Lake Blue Fins Swim Club made a splash in Prince Rupert over the weekend at their first competitive swim meet of the year. And Blue Fins head coach Chad Webb said he was happy with the results. “Most had some best times with only being in the water for less than a month,” Webb said. The girls’ 13-14 relay team of Mikah Stewart, Kara Zavitz, Madison Blusson and Coral Choi took a commanding lead early in the race and continued on to win. Webb said Mikah, a rookie competitor with the club, held off several strong swimmers hunting her down to hold on to the lead and out-touch Prince George and Prince Rupert. Meanwhile Blue

Fins’s swimmer Chase Stewart was named Blue Fins swimmer of the meet by Webb. “He swam some very impressive events and achieved an ‘A’ time in 100-metre back, which is a regional qualifying standard,” Webb said. “This was Chase’s first out-of-town competition and he is well on his way to being a tough competitor in the pool.” Blusson also showed huge improvements, Webb said, as she started the season with some very solid swims to better many of her results from last year. Trayden Stewart, Harkamal Samra, also in their first out-oftown competitions, posted some solid results in their swims and helped the 15-and-over boys to a fourth- and fifth-place in their relay with teammates Chase and David Rus-

Everyone Encouraged To Attend Project Development Forum All residents of Williams Lake are invited and encouraged to attend a project development forum on Monday, October 28th to review two options for local connections from Highway 97 as part of a Ministry of Transportation plan to improve Highway 97 near Toop Road and Carson Drive. City and Ministry staff will be presenting information on the design options, followed by a Question & Answer opportunity. The meeting will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Gibraltar Room at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex on Monday, Oct. 28.

Women’s Centre welcomes visitors to new home Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer The Women’s Contact Society is now happily settled into its new digs in the community co-operative building across from Safeway on Fourth Avenue. Staff members provided tours of the new space Monday afternoon prior to the society’s annual meeting in the evening during which Ciel Patenaude was the keynote speaker. The society recently moved from its old digs above Caribou Ski Source for Sports on First Avenue to the upstairs of the cooperative building. The new space is a bit smaller than the old space but brings the women’s centre closer to the other community groups which are located in the same building or close by, and share accounting services to save on costs, says activities co-ordinator Ashlee Turatus. The close proximity also allows the societies to work more collaboratively to meet community needs, Turatus says. The Women’s Contact Society’s associates are the Child Development Centre, Canadian Mental Health Association, W.L. Association for Community Living, and the Boys and Girls Club. The Caribou Brain Injury Society and collective’s business office is also located in the Women’s Centre which is on the second floor of Fourth Avenue above CMHA. The spacious new Women’s Centre entrance has a nook painted with happy giraffes to accompany the chairs, games table, books and other games to keep visiting children entertained. Part of the tour also included a peek in the Child Care Resource and Referral Program’s lending library with Beulah Munson, manager of the society’s children’s services program. The library has all sorts of toys, activity boxes, games, books and things like high chairs and rockers, baby gates professional and family child care providers can borrow for up to a month for a fee of $30. Munson says grandparents often come into the centre to borrow an activity box or one of the big toys when grandchildren visit. Child care services also include operation of the Kidcare Daycare at the Williams Lake Secondary Western Campus. Eva Navrot also showed the work she has done to create The Closet. This is a lovely little room where women returning to the workforce, heading out for a job interview, attending court, or other more formal occasions

The Williams Lake and District Credit Union initially held a clothing drive to start The Closet which also includes accessories and shoes, Navrot says. The Closet primarily provides business clothing for women. Any clothing received that doesn’t quite fit that use is donated to other groups such as the Salvation Army or Chiwid House. The new Women’s Contact Centre includes a board room where activity displays and snacks were set up for the open house; a lunch room where staff can relax on breaks and cooking classes are held with assisted living clients; plus several smaller consultation and meeting rooms. There are also offices where program workers meet with clients. Incorporated in 1982 as a nonprofit society, the Women’s Contact Society exists to provide support and services to all women and girls that improves their quality of life and empowers them to change ideas, laws and situations that deny women equality. The centre also provides women’s counselling services, legal advocacy services, and runs the Good Food Box program which provides boxes of fresh vegetables at affordable prices by shopping collectively. The society also provides a wide variety of support for women through workshops on health, education, safety, prevention of human trafficking, and events and support for groups of girls on safety and empowerment.

Fall on the ranch a busy time Linda-Lou Howarth Special to Tribune/Advisor All throughout the Cariboo/Chilcotin every ranch house and yard is teaming with cows calves and riders as this is the busiest time of year for everyone! This is when the stock is sold and the bank balance goes up again, ranchers then find out if the riders did a good job looking after the herd as the calves bring good prices, cull cows are cut from the herd and sold plus pregnancy testing the cows lets the rancher know if the riders moved the bulls to where the cows hung out and thereby getting bred. First off the cows are brought in off the

Phone lines are busy

as ranchers call each other asking if they seen “the bull” or “I’m missing about a 100 head; are they in your

range?” Or “I corralled about 30 head of yours this morning when I rounded my stragglers

way out in the range.” This is when everyone catches up on the ‘goings on’ and the gossip. Next the equipment is brought out for the winter feeding, fences are double checked to make sure the stock stays home, no rest for the ranchers as there is something going on all year long with cattle! Here’s hoping everyone gets a good price for the beef!! On Oct. 11 the Dane Ranch chased the cows into a pen and had them pregnancy tested by the vet Rick from Alberta, a little chilly in the morning, but afternoon had everyone peeling off the winter coats and gloves in exchange for riding hats and a much lighter coat.

Pumpkin Patch visits Yellow Umbrella this weekend LeRae Haynes Special to Tribune/Advisor A field of 500 bright orange pumpkins will welcome guests again this year at the Pumpkin Patch family event at Yellow Umbrella Thyme for Tea for Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy’s Bright Red Bookshelf. The two-day fundraiser, held every two years, has become a destination for many families who enjoy the tractor rides, decorations, the refresh-

ments, stories and photo opportunities. Once again Gibraltar Mines is partnering with Yellow Umbrella to provide the pumpkins for the event. Yellow Umbrella owner Linda Symynuk said the event started because of her love of pumpkins and her desire as a business to give back to the community. “Growing up on the Lower Mainland we always visited a pumpkin patch to

choose one for Halloween,” Symynuk explained. “When we decided to do a pumpkin patch here, we bought the pumpkins and placed them in the field behind the tea house and invited people out. We wanted to connect it with a charity and chose Partners for Literacy and their Bright Red Bookshelf.” One unique aspect to the pumpkin patch this year is a bright, lively pumpkin paint-

Pumpkins are just happy and make me smile,” Derkson said, adding that her painting is available at the Yellow Umbrella for bidding until the event this Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26-27. Symynuk explained that part of the excitement at the event for the kids is riding behind a tractor with her husband Norm at the wheel – driving around until they find exactly the right pumpkin. “I hear from visitors how much they enjoy the experience – people take the time for a personal thank you, saying that it’s a great family event. “The kids are always so enthusiastic, and now people bring their cameras to grab a perfect family photo, she said, adding that there are creative, fun ‘photo op’ locations set up, hot chocolate and popcorn served to guests and Partners for Literacy volunteers on hand to read stories to kids.” She explained visitors to the pumpkin patch pay by donation, adding that the

RPS postal service comes to the Chilcotin new accounting systems. She spent the final day of training Oct. 16 helping the two women to use the new Retail Point Service machine. “Not all post offices have this machine but I have helped quite a few get set up and make sure that they are running smoothly,” Drader says. With the RPS system in place, Gano and Klepacz are able to offer more services to rural Canada Post customers, such as C.O.D.s and money grams. Gano is still working out so-called bugs and learning new procedures every time she uses the RPS, system. “But with many calls and minutes on the phone with Drader and others for further help, I am getting along with the machine,” Gano says. “Thank goodness for technology.”

Linda-Lou Howarth Special to Tribune/Advisor Both gazing with trepidation at this “thing” plunked in their office, Kleena Kleene Postmaster Melodie Gano and staffer Mary Klepacz spent last week learning how to operate a new piece of equipment. Until this past year the post office for Kleena Kleene was just a few green locked boxes outside an old log house at the edge of town so that when people went to get their mail that is all they did. The post mistress at the time was Brenda McFetridge who trained Gano to deliver the mail. That job resulted in Gano being hired as the postmaster of Kleena Kleene when McFetridge retired and the post office service being moved about six

NEWS

Gaps wide in crude oil spill scenarios in province Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. environment ministry has released its promised study of the current state of crude oil spill response capability, tracking the growing tonnage of petroleum shipping along the West Coast and estimating response time and effectiveness if oil was to spill at sea. Oil recovery in computer simulated oil spills could be as high as 25 per cent after five days, or as low as four per cent for Alaska crude, with another quarter evaporating. The study was commissioned to back up Premier Christy Clark’s conditions for B.C.’s approval of expanded heavy oil shipments, either from twinning the TransMountain pipeline from northern Alberta to Burnaby, or the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway project across northern B.C. to a new tanker port at Kitimat. Environment Minister Mary Polak said the study shows the need to increase response capability before the B.C. government would consider increased oil shipments. “While we respect federal jurisdiction over marine spills, we must ensure B.C.’s interests are being met, and that means adding more resources to protect our coast,” Polak said. The three-volume report also details the huge and growing traffic that exists now. Shipping data show a 17 per cent increase in marine traffic volume from 2011 to 2012. An estimated 110 million cubic metres of petroleum products per year are shipped, about a third of which is crude-like bunker oil carried as fuel on ships of all kinds. The biggest tanker cargo is 38 million cubic metres of mostly Alaska crude a year. The study includes recovery estimates for seven oil spill scenarios, six of which assumed a spill of Alaska North Slope crude that has been shipped by tankers down the B.C. coast

to U.S. refineries since the 1970s. Two scenarios involve an Alaska crude spill in Dixon Entrance, with four per

cent recovery in summer an three per cent in winter. One scenario examines a summer-time

spill of diluted bitumen in the Juan de Fuca Strait, with response from Canadian and U.S. ships and oil re-

covery equipment. It estimated 31 per cent oil recovery after five days, in summer conditions with daylight-

only operations. Diluted bitumen tanker shipments from Kinder Morgan Canada’s Burnaby terminal

hit a high of 69 in 2010. The expansion would mean 300 tankers a year in and out of Vancouver harbour.
