Victor Harry and Jocelyn Isnardy of Williams Lake welcomed a first-born son and the city’s New Year’s baby on Jan. 5, 2014 at Cariboo Memorial Hospital. Weighing eight pounds and two ounces, the couple’s son was born at 4:15 a.m. Both Harry and Isnardy were born and raised in the Cariboo Chilcotin. Their son, yet to be named, will be welcomed by “lots of cousins” on both sides of the Fraser River. “He is a little toughie already,” said his mom. “When he was getting weighed he was trying to hold up his head.”

Gibraltar’s copper production up 35 per cent

(off Mackenzie) Williams Lake


Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer


The numbers are in for 2013, showing a significant increase in copper production at Gibraltar Mine. In a report released Wednesday, Taseko Mines Ltd. said it produced 35 per cent more copper in 2013, totalling 121.5 million pounds of copper — and 10 per cent more molybdenum, totalling 1.5 million pounds. Taseko’s president and CEO Russell Hallbauer said the company is pleased with the ramp up of the new concentrator, which is

now operating at design capacity. “Overall, the two concentrators are performing very well, although there remains work to be done optimizing the copper recovery circuits,” he said. “Significant recovery improvements were achieved in the new molybdenum separation facility during the fourth quarter with molybdenum recoveries averaging 31 per cent, a 79 per cent increase from that achieved in the third quarter.” In the fourth quarter, daily mill throughput averaged 82,400 tons per day, an 81 per cent increase over the same period a year ago. This was achieved even though

mill availability was seven per cent below target, which vice-president of corporate affairs Brian Battison explained happens when the mill is down for maintenance or equipment changes. The increase in production is the kind of performance that’s expected from the recent investments made in the mine, he added. When it comes to optimizing copper recovery circuits, mine’s do not expect to retrieve 100 per cent of the copper from the rock. “You get as much as you can get, but you work to improve the recovery,” Battison said. Slightly more than 700 people

are presently employed at the mine. “It’s actually quite the success story,” Battison said. “You look at an old facility that was destined to be bulldozed in 1999, and turn it into a state-of-the-art mining facility, and achieve this kind of performance.” 2013 fourth quarter total sales were 37.4 million pounds of copper and 500 thousand pounds of molybdenum. Fourth quarter copper inventories were reduced from the previous quarter, however, they remained higher than normal due to a delayed shipment at the end of the year.

First case of H5N1 confirmed Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Alberta Health officials have confirmed a fatal case of H5N1 influenza in an individual who recently returned from Beijing, China. The individual died on Jan. 3 after being treated in Edmonton for a severe illness, B.C.’s provincial health officer Perry Kendall told reporters during a press conference Wednesday. “This is the first reported case of H5N1 in North America,” Kendall said. Since 2003, there have been about 600 cases reported world-wide in 15 countries. “It has a mortality rate of in excess of 60 per cent so it is a very serious illness, all the cases have been hospitalized,” Kendall said. The individual who contracted H5N1 travelled through the Vancouver International Airport en route from Beijing to Edmonton, and spent about two and a half hours in the airport on Dec. 27 between 12:30 and 3 p.m., waiting for a connecting A3

flight. “It’s now been 12 days since this case returned to Canada,” Kendall said. “Travelling contacts who might have been close to this patient would, by now, have shown recognized signs and symptoms.” Human to human transmission of H5N1 is very rare and if it happens has been confined to close family contacts, Kendall said. “The vast majority of human cases of H5N1 have been acquired from infected poultry. It is therefore extremely unlikely that any passengers or casual airport contacts of this case would have been put at risk.” It is recommended that people who are travelling to China avoid poultry markets, avoid contact with live chickens or birds, and if they are going to eat chicken ensure that it is thoroughly cooked, Kendall warned. “I would like to reassure British Columbians that we have done an extensive risk assessment with Health Canada and with Alberta Health

officials and we see minimal risk to anyone who would have been exposed to this individual on either of the flights or in the Vancouver Airport,” Kendall said. Since April 2013, commissions across B.C. have been placed on high alert to recognize and report severe respiratory illness in any patient with a history of travel to China because of H7N9 concerns, or to the Middle East because of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome corona virus (MERS CoV) concerns that travel within 14 days prior to the onset of their illness. “Since Dec. 27, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control has not been notified of any cases,” Kendall said. “The provincial public health microbiology lab has been conducting increasing testing for influenza in response to the recent H1N1 and absolutely no cases of H5N1 have been detected in B.C. to date.” Travellers to China who experience new respiratory symptoms accompanied by breathing

difficulties or other signs of worsening illness within 14 days of their return should consult with their doctor, Kendall said. Most respiratory illnesses at this time of year, including those felt by returning travellers will be due to common viral illness, such as seasonal influenza, including the descendants of the 2009 H1N1 virus, which is currently affecting people in B.C. Although the current influenza vaccine will not protect against H5N1 public health officials still remind members of the public that the H1N1 virus is the predominant cause of illness in B.C. right now and H1N1 is preventable through immunization. Both H1N1 and H5N1 can be treated with antivirals, which are most effective if given within the first 48 hours of the onset of influenza symptoms. The Interior Health Unit in Williams Lake said Thursday it still has seasonal flu vaccines in stock, which have included the H1N1 vaccine since 2009.

U.S. study says grizzlies worth more alive Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C.’s Coastal First Nations were quick to endorse a new U.S. study of the value of bear viewing in their traditional territories. Kitasoo/Xai’xais councillor Doug Neasloss said the study by the Washington D.C.-based Centre for Responsible Travel supports what the northwest coast aboriginal communities have been saying for years: “Bears are worth more alive than they are dead.” The study calculated that in 2012, bear viewing in what is now popularly known as the Great Bear Rainforest generated 12 times the visitor revenue as bear hunting. It counts 510 people employed in bear viewing companies compared to 12

Bear viewing companies on B.C.’s remote North Coast are growing as hunting declines, according to a U.S. analysis. jobs in guided hunting. The study is the latest salvo in a battle over trophy hunting in B.C. In November the province proposed to expand its traditional grizzly hunt to include Cariboo and Kootenay regions that were previously

closed due to population concerns. The Coastal First Nations, which includes Haida, Heiltsuk and seven other North Coast communities, has asserted its unresolved treaty rights in logging and pipeline protests

as well as bear hunting. In 2012 the group announced a ban on trophy hunting for bears in its territories. The province has continued to issue “harvesting” permits, including one well-publicized trophy shot by NHL player

Clayton Stoner in May 2013, who took only the head and paws. The U.S. study, funded by Tides Canada and Nature Conservancy USA, suggested B.C. has overstated the value of its guide-outfitter business to remote economies. The province tracks wildlife populations and records human-related deaths, including vehicle accidents and “conflict kills,” where ranchers or conservation officers shoot bears to protect homes or livestock. The U.S. study reports that there were 74 grizzly hunters from outside B.C. in 2012, 80 per cent of them from the U.S. From 1976 to 2009 the province issued hunting permits for an average of 297 grizzly bears a year.

Order of B.C. nominations now open Nominations for the province’s highest recognition of excellence and lifetime achievement, the Order of British Columbia for 2014, are now being accepted. “The Order of British Columbia is the province’s most prestigious accolade and gives us the opportunity to recognize the outstanding works of

individuals in our communities who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to make all our lives better,” said Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor and Chancellor of the Order of British Columbia in announcing the nominations. Any person or group is welcome to nominate a deserving individual

Order of British Columbia must be received by March 7 at the secretariat’s office 1st floor, 548 Michigan Street, Victoria, V8V-1S2 or via email at orderofbc@gov., to be considered this year. Nominations received after this will be included in the selection process for the next year.

We are your Neighbours, Your Friends, We are Community Volunteers. Most of all, We are a Team YOUR TEAM!

A dinner and special ceremony of recognition will be hosted later this year by Lt.-Gov. Guichon at Government House for recipients and invited guests. The Order of British Columbia was established in 1989. Since its inception, 345 British Columbians have been honoured.

Going for gold The armchair coaches now questioning the picks for the Canadian men’s Olympic hockey team have a few more weeks to discuss their preferred dream team before the Olympics begin. The truth is, the players — including Montreal Canadiens netminder Carey Price of Anahim Lake — are all standouts and we’ll enjoy watching them take on the world at Sochi during the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. We’ll look to players like Sidney Crosby to reproduce heroics, much like the golden goal which secured Canada a gold medal at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, for moments to get excited about. We’ll ride the ups and downs of the Games, just like many of the players.

There may be a few more topnotch Canadian hockey players who could have been added to the team — this country produces a lot of them — but for now, let’s get behind the team that is about to don our nation’s colours. Let’s also root for the 21-player Canadian women’s hockey team that was chosen to much less fanfare in December. This squad of outstanding athletes is sure to put on a great show and is favoured to win a fourth consecutive Olympic gold, with the American side — as it was in 2010 in Vancouver — the greatest competition. If hockey is Canada’s game, then the Olympics is sure to be the highlight of fans’ hockey experience this year. - Black Press

Family fun for all

Discovering the true meaning of airplane mode It was awfully quiet — rarely a good sign around children. En route to visit family in California, I was enjoying a favourite airline, great visibility, and a couple of free days offering respite from holiday busyness. But two small children and a baby had boarded the flight, too. There was no movie today. A little turbulence also meant no food and no drinks. As the aircraft climbed, suddenly all was quiet. Had I missed an announcement? Was something wrong? My eyes abandoned their wingtip view of Mount Ranier, then froze at what I saw, not just in the kid’s seats, but in the entire cabin. The woman across the aisle from me was working a puzzle on her iPad.



Living out Loud

with Rita Corbett

The beauty next to me was engrossed in her Kindle. The two children were ‘gaming’ on some contraption, and as far as I could see, every passenger had disappeared headdown, and was busily tapping, scrolling, pinching and swiping. Blackberries, tablets, and iPhones were everywhere — and not a word was spoken.

Is that the meaning of “airplane mode?” Lives touching, but with no connection? Nothing to cherish, nothing to take away? Nothing touching us but impersonal terabytes? Evidencing guilt, I pulled out my computer and began to work. But ancient encounters beckoned to me — times I would have missed if then was like now. Fresh conversations I would have lost if armrest squabbles and “excuse me” were our only chatter. I recall a CEO who hoped to save his business. A volunteer to a Russian orphanage. A conversation between a Hindu and a Christian. All that richness — free! What of the Pan Am flight

decades ago when children folded paper boxes, fought over Rubik’s cube, and tangled their string tricks. Self-preservation tells me not to list all the occupiers Mother brought along! I recently heard a child query, “Can I play on your phone? Can I watch a movie? Or play on the computer?” There followed no comment on his grammar — only a handover of the latest device. What do those blinkin’ lights offer us, anyway? Time and connection, or do they rob us of the same? Perhaps we’re in an unreal warp of some sort! Is is true students are marked ‘present’ while texting at the back of the classroom? We love electronics! But are they here to rule us or serve us? What will the baby that boarded the plane value?

Our default mode may be at fault if we have to choose technology over living. Perhaps people are just electronic pets to be shut off at the first annoyance! A few days after the bygone flight, CNN announced that the man’s company had gone broke. Business gone, but connection solid. And I would have been poorer had I missed the verbal tour of Russia, or the conversation with Mr. Chinta. Are we living, alive, on fire? Or free-falling into the limits of a plug? I need a moment or two to hone my next admission. So, in keeping with the theme, please send no e-mail this week to Rita Corbett is a freelance columnist with the Tribune/Advisor.

Another year of enviro-wars begins The new year lurched to life with a round of shouting about the environment, as our postindustrial, post-literate urban society grapples with conflicting claims of impending doom. The release of a group of Greenpeace protesters from a Russian prison was welcomed by TV news networks desperate to fill the holiday dead zone. Our intrepid Canadian pair got to describe over and over their bid to hang a strongly worded banner from a Russian offshore oil platform, and their horror when security forces boarded their vessel from helicopters and seized it. In all the fawning interviews, I kept waiting for two questions to be asked. What did they think Vladimir Putin’s regime would do? And what was the point? How is disrupting one oil platform for an hour going to save the planet? The Greenpeace “activists” claimed this was the first oil platform to operate above the Arctic Circle. So it was a line in the snow, which I’m sure impressed Putin as he ramps up his territorial claim to include the North Pole. Meanwhile at the South Pole, TV anchors remained carefully sombre as they reported numerous bids to rescue a scientific vessel trapped in thick ice. No quips about the predictive abilities of climate scientists please! In fact this ill-fated voyage was a re-enactment of Sir Douglas Mawson’s 1913 expedition, with pro-global warm-

ing news outlets BBC and The Guardian aboard to capture the melting wrought by a century of industrial expansion. The rescue efforts (from a Russian ship by Chinese helicopters) also disrupted an Australian icebreaker’s supply trip for one of the real scientific expeditions working in Antarctica. Skeptics had great fun with the Antarctic debacle, as they did earlier with the resurgence of Arctic ice that trapped climate tourists. As is normal in the Internet age, the climate debate has split into two fanatical factions, each of which promotes the most extreme examples it can find to prop up its version of truth. They call each other “warmists” and “deniers” among other pithy names. Greenpeace is now known in B.C. as part of our Team America anti-tar sands brigade. They got off to a good start in 2014 by selectively seizing on reports of a new study of mercury contamination in northern Alberta. A “bullseye” of this dreaded neurotoxin has been drawn

around oilsands operations by measuring traces in snow. The study by Environment Canada scientists isn’t published yet, but Postmedia News reported on a presentation in November by the researchers. “The federal scientists stress the mercury loadings around the oilsands are low compared to the contamination seen in many parts of North America including southern Ontario and southern Quebec,” the news report states. This is like the study of poly-

cyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) pollution in northern Alberta lakes that was twisted into propaganda and fed to the news media last year. This is another group of neurotoxins that are far more concentrated in urban areas than around remote industry. Consumption, rather than production of coal, diesel and other fuels produces the vast majority of these emissions. I look forward to the study of their effects around Lost Lagoon and Burnaby Lake.

Of course safe levels of these materials have been set by Health Canada. You’re more likely to get significant exposure to mercury from a broken fluorescent lamp or the mercury amalgam in your old tooth fillings than you are from feeding ducks at the lake, although you might get a whiff of PAH when you gas up the car or board the bus.

HAPPY: New Year

Wishing everyone all the best in 2014 It’s going to be a big year in Williams Lake. I’m looking forward to meeting with the Premier’s blue ribbon crime reduction panel later this month and sharing the work we’re doing to move toward a safer, healthier community, as well as the successes we’ve had so far. Also this year, we’re anticipating a decision about the New Prosperity mine, the Sam Ketcham Pool referendum and local government and school board elections.

From the Mayor’s Chair Kerry Cook

I’m looking forward to seeing progress to the Master Plan to upgrade the Cariboo Memorial Hospital, and finalizing the plans for how the Highway 97 four-laning project will con-

nect to city streets. We will also be celebrating the city’s 85th birthday with a number of events. Our economic indicators for 2013 look good. Our building permit values totalled $15.4 million — almost double last year — and the highest since 2009. The number of new homes built and the number of business licenses remained steady, and our vacancy rate has declined to a four-year low.

The value of real estate sales was up. We saw construction begin on the new West Fraser planer mill, and the construction of the new Andre’s Electronics store. Council will attend a facilitated workshop with the Williams Lake Indian Band and the Cariboo Regional District next week to identify ways to improve communication, strengthen relationships, and work together for the region.

Partnerships benefit all those involved, and Williams Lake city council is always looking to strengthen relationships with our First Nations neighbours. I’m looking forward to building on a solid foundation of a sustainable long term approach to financial planning, building a strong economy and a healthy, safe community as we move forward in 2014. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Reader answers will help guage the current consumer climate to

help local businesses craft new and better ways to serve their clients and customers.

Readers who submit the survey before February 3 will also have their name entered into the early bird draw with a chance to win one of ten $50 grocery gift cards.

allowing businesses to identify niche areas of their business, including showing potential areas for growth or expansion.

Secondary Empty Bowls and Talent Show helps food bank Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer Hunger is a chronic condition for many people around the world. Next week Lake City Secondary students are hosting their first Empty Bowls and Talent Show to raise awareness about hunger in our own community and funds for the food bank. “If dinner goes according to plan next Thursday, many people coming to support the Empty Bowls and Talent Show night at the Williams Lake Campus, will go home still feeling a little hungry,” says art teacher Siobhan Wright. The event happens Thursday, Jan. 17 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Williams Lake Campus commons. For $10 guests get to pick and take home a handmade bowl created by the art students from both the middle and the secondary schools. They will also get four-to-six ounces of soup and a bun to eat before the show. “When you think about a cup of soup, and a roll, they don’t seem like much, but for some people it’s everything they have,” Wright says. Art teachers Wright, along with Lyle Fink and Zac Pinette, began organizing this event with their students last September. Wright says the foods classes taught by

The students will also be volunteering to help serve the soup and wash the bowls for the event. “Teachers and administrators are also jumping in line to volunteer to help sell tickets and clean up,” Wright says.

She says students created the bowls from clay either by throwing them on the school wheels or by rolling out clay into slabs and forming the bowls inside other bowls. Younger students have also created bowls by pinching out the clay from a round ball. Once the bowls have dried out they are painted using under glazes and fired in the school’s electric kiln overnight. When the bowls have cooled the students paint over them again using shiny waterproof and microwave safe glazes and they go into the kiln for a second time. “Bowls usually take

Turkey Salisbury steak great way to polish off holiday leftovers When I was hanging around my mother’s kitchen many moons ago, I liked to eat anything. There was not one piece of food I tasted at that time, I did not like. I had pickled pigs feet one meal that only my dog and my grandfather liked. When we would go out to a restaurant I always wanted liver and onions. I could eat anything and I did ... I ate as much as I could and consumed as much or more than the adults

use dishes from whatever part of the world that suits my desire on any given day. Every since I was small … let’s say … ever since I was a younger person, I have enjoyed Salisbury steak covered with gravy and mushrooms. I never had tasted a Salisbury steak with turkey, as I always had a beef. I suspect you may have already had enough turkey over the holidays, but in case you have some left over, this is an easy dish to cook. I like to add some mushrooms at the end of the cooking process. Turkey Salisbury Steak Deluxe One can cream of mushroom soup Two tsp Worcestershire sauce • 1 tbsp mustard • 1 tsp horseradish

In another bowl combine egg, breadcrumbs, onion, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup of soup mixture. Add turkey and mix well. Shape into six patties. Spray large frying pan with olive oil. Cook patties until they are brown. Combine remaining soup mixture with water; pour over patties.

Tim Hus stars in 100 Mile House Cowboy Concert

“The right mortgage can build your wealth and save you thousands of dollars”

Gaven Crites Special to Tribune/Advisor Three outstanding acts are slated for the 14th Annual 100 Mile House Cowboy Concert coming up on Saturday, Jan. 18. Joining renowned, Alberta-based singer and songwriter Tim Hus at Martin Exeter Hall in 100 Mile House are Jeremy Willis and Mag Mawhinney. Fans might remember Hus from his performance at the Cowboy Concert in 2009, and its hosts are lucky to have him back, says organizer Mark McMillan. Hus has played with well-known Canadian country music acts like Corb Lund and Ian Tyson. He also toured with the iconic Stompin’ Tom Connors. “He’s really getting a pretty good name for himself,” McMillan says of Hus. “He’s done pretty impressive stuff.” Willis, currently of Kelowna, was born and raised in a ranching community in the British Columbia

out for the rest of the season and will make a report to city council at the end whether it’s something we should continue using in the future.” The compound, Beet 55, is a mixture of 60 per cent salt brine and 40 per cent beet concentrate. It is 15 per cent less corrosive than magnesium chloride liquid, which the city has used for at least 10 years. The compound has a freezing point of approximately -20 C. Goldfuss said it comes in liquid form and is sprayed using the city’s de-icing truck. Before Christmas he received a batch and has a second order coming next week. When applied, Beet

City tackling winter with new de-icing compound Maintenance who had been using it in Merritt on local highway systems since 2010. “The more I researched I learned it is also being used in the Midwestern United States and in Eastern Canada,” he said. Another advantage is the fact Beet 55 is less expensive than magnesium chloride. Beet 55 is not harm-



ful to pets or humans, however it is not suitable for human or pet consumption. As with any salt product the public needs to be aware that if the salt brine gets on the paws of dogs that it should be washed off ASAP. “This will prevent your pet from licking at the product and will prevent unneces-






sary discomfort should your pet have a open sore or wound,” Goldfuss said. “You know what it’s like when we get salt on our hands. It doesn’t feel that great.” When asked about its thickness, Goldfuss said it’s a bit thicker than water. “To me it smells like a tootsie roll,” he chuckled.

Lakecity pooches chosen for Bosley’s 2014 calendar Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer Two lakecity pets have won the December spot on the Bosley’s pet store 2014 calendar. Brock and Jenni Hoyer are the proud owners of what could be the cutest pets in the calendar, dressed up in Santa hats and seeming to discuss their respective holiday toques with each other. Socket, the black and white pooch on the left, is a Border Collie cross. Nova, the white dog on the right, is a French bull dog which the couple ordered from California and had flown up to meet them in Vancouver. Jenni says they get emails from Bosley’s where they often shop for their pets and last year received a “casting call” the company sent out to their customers seeking photographs for their 2014 calendar.

They had a cute picture of their pets that lakecity photographer Lori Rankin had taken for them last Christmas and with her permission decided to enter it in the contest. Later Jenni says they got an email back saying Lori’s photo had been selected for month of December. The news was all the more sweet because the

selection wasn’t based on public popularity vote. The selection of photos for each month was made by the Bosley staff, Jenni says. Jenni is a purchasing agent for Mount Polley Mine and Brock works several jobs with Spectra and drives logging truck. Brock is also a noted motocross racer trav-

elling the competition circuit, so with their commute times, their days are long and full. Jenni says she also discovered this week that a photo of Brock has made the February cover of the Canadian dirt bike magazine Motocross Performance which is also now on news stands. “It’s definitely been busy,” Jenni says.

Film club hosts film from Denmark Tuesday Krista Liebe Special to Tribune/Advisor The first Williams Lake Film Club film of the new year had to be changed due to some delivery problems. I am still trying to get INUK for you, but at a later date. On Tuesday, Jan. 14, we will be screening The Hunt, a great film from Denmark. It will be shown at the Gibraltar Room at 7 p.m., back doors

open at 6:30 a.m. I have to admit I was hesitant to get this film. It deals with a very touchy subject, sexual child abuse, and in my opinion it is very, very difficult to make a good, well-balanced film about this, even more difficult not to get either all sappy or too judgmental. Well, I was wrong. The Hunt is not only a good film, it is excellent. The acting is excel-

lent. Mads Mikkelsen received the Palme d’Or last year at the Cannes Film Festival for best actor for his portrayal of Lucas, the wronged teacher. And the little girl Klara is a true wonder to watch. The cast is well chosen all around and totally believable. And the setting in this small town in rural Denmark is just beautiful, a perfect backdrop for the underlying treachery.

The film tells the story of a former schoolteacher who went through a nasty divorce, lost his job, and is now working in a kinder garden. He has a great group of friends, some of them he has known for many, many years. Lucas is finally ready to develop some tender attachment to a lively young colleague, but his priority is his fight for custody of his son. All seems to go well,

things are looking up for him, and then his world shatters once again … One of his kinder garden children, Clara, the daughter of his best friend, tells a little lie. We know it is a false accusation, we even know that little Clara picked this story up from her brother, but it is all so easily and scarily believable how the story unfolds. The slow acting

poison of rumour is devastating. It tears people apart, makes them so suspicious. We see it all too often without really thinking about it. This film will make you think. And it will make you wonder how you would have acted under such circumstances. The Hunt comes highly recommended, has received countless accolades and should not be missed. I com-

pletely agree. There will be refreshments after the screening and maybe a lively discussion about the film. Or you just might be happy to see all of your friends again. Note: There will be a complete new schedule for our Tuesday movies and a new schedule for Saturday matinees. Language is Danish, English and Polish, with English subtitles when necessary; 115 min., rating 15-plus.

We measure what matters The other day I was visiting a friend and spotted a nice set of antlers on the wall – one of the tallest mule deer racks I’ve seen. We’ve talked about them before, but my friend wasn’t at all hesitant to talk about them again…. how tall the rack was, how many points it scored when measured, how far the shot was, and what caliber and weight of bullet he prefered to hunt with. All of these were quantifiable things – measurements of varying sorts. I watched him light up as he described it all to me. We measure what matters to us. Whether it’s the size and number of the fish you caught, the details of your exercise routine, available funds in your bank account, the temperature (above zero) you enjoyed on your latest vacation, or the amount of flour and sugar you put in those delicious cookies, we all tend to measure the things that matter to us. Show me anything that really matters to you and I’ll bet you’ve tried to put a yardstick next to it. Yup. If you aren’t measuring something, it probably doesn’t matter to you all that much. Now, this is especially important when it comes to things that need to change. You’ve got them. I’ve got them. You may have things you’ve needed to change for a long time. So, the New Year has already rolled over, and most of us have already forgotten whatever lame attempt at resolutions we made; we may have even given up the possibility of change in some areas of our lives. I want to suggest an approach that can be a small step in the right direction: start measuring what matters. It’s been said: “You get what you tolerate.” It’s true. But there’s another


BY Chris harder truth: “You get more of what you measure.” The simple act of tracking things can actually encourage change. In light of the reality that life is short, the prophet Moses makes a brilliant request of God: “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” That might be the best New Years’ prayer ever. I read it to say, “Teach me what my time is really worth, so I can spend it on what really matters.” Stop for a moment and ask yourself how well you actually measure the biggest and most important areas of your life. I’m not talking about your bank balance or your GPA. Let’s look at areas that are way more important than those numbers. How about your relational life? Your emotional life? Your spiritual life? Your physical life? The stuff that adds up

to make you, you. The moments that add up to a life well-lived. Here are a few ideas for consideration things you could try to put a number to: How many meaningful conversations do you have with members of your family (or close friends) each week? How many chapters of a good book have you read? Compare this with the number of times you flip channels or surf to yet another website. Those numbers might shock you. How often do you pause to pray? To worship? To give your soul food to grow on? How much of time, talents, and treasures are you actually sharing with others? How often do you express gratitude? I read a book this summer by a woman whose life was transformed from depressed to joyful in the course of a year by the intentional act of looking for 3 things to be grateful for each day. Simple, measurable, and incredibly effective. I know there are dangers to trying to measure everything. People can obsess over it, counting every last little thing they do and shaming other people (or themselves) when they don’t “measure up”. Please, let’s not go there, OK? What I’m talking about is just being intentional and learning to observe what is actually going on in our lives. I’ve become convinced that it’s part of the beginning of healthy change. Have questions? Need help? Want to talk about it? Drop me a line or drop into one of the fine churches in our community. I know there are people there who want to help. Wishing you a God-filled year, Pastor Chris

Cariboo Challenge sled dog races

Chris Nickless photo

Mushers will be arriving at the 108 Mile Heritage Site in droves as the Cariboo Challenge sled dog races run this weekend from Jan. 10-12.

Cariboo Challenge runs this weekend Greg Sabatino Staff Writer Dozens of mushers are preparing for the upcoming sled dog races south of Williams Lake, and among them is Richard Wannamaker from Didsbury, Alta. It will be Richard’s first time competing in the Cariboo Challenge at the 108 Mile Heritage Site, which goes Jan. 10-12 and for the 21st time. He won the Canadian Challenge International Sled Dog Race, a close to 600-kilometre race held in central Saskatchewan, in 2007 and 2008 with a 12dog team. It’s Canada’s longest sled dog race that starts, runs and finishes in the country. It’s quite an event to compete in, let alone win and survive, Richard says. “The first year I won, it was -46 C and with a wind chill it was -58 C. It kind of makes you wonder sometimes what you’re really doing.

“It’s pretty exciting if you can keep your wits about you and the dogs healthy.” The team averaged close to 135 miles a day over three-and-a-half days running through historic freight trails south from Prince Albert and up north past La Ronge. The dogs are like a gas gauge, he explains. “The dogs look after you. If they’re well-fed and wellwatered, and don’t have any injuries and you keep them warm and happy, they do pretty darn good.” Richard and his wife, Dena, attempted but didn’t complete, the Canadian Challenge in 2012. He talks about his struggle with cancer and having to sell his long-distance dog team. Richard adds some dogs from his former team did the Iditarod — the most renowned and competitive sled dog race, which runs annually from Anchorage to Nome in Alaska. Now that he is in recovery and starting to feel better, the Wannamakers have

started training and racing sprint dogs again. Richard says he thinks he’s going to do the Canadian Challenge this year in February. Although it’s a much different type of race, Richard says he’s also looking forward to racing at the Cariboo Challenge, which includes four-, six- and 10dog teams, as well as skijoring and two-dog junior categories. Richard has entered the four-dog and six-dog categories along with Dena, and their daughter, Rachel. “Sprinting is fun. It’s all over in a few minutes. I’m a blessed man the good Lord is letting me do this again.” Meanwhile in Williams Lake, local skijorer Jen Clark is preparing to make the trek south for the races. A relative newcomer to the sport, Clark says the activity is accessible and, simply, a lot of fun. “I’ve just been doing this for a few years,” she says. “I had one dog in the race last year and this year I’m bringing two [labs].”

Skijoring differs from sled dog racing by replacing the sled with skis. The dog or dogs then pull the person, instead of a sled. Clark says she discovered the sport when her son was a toddler. “I liked being outside and I had a toddler who, at two years old, couldn’t go too far,” she says. “I thought I’d hook my dog up to a sled, so I got a sled harness, and in the process of doing that I kind of came across dog sledding and skijoring. “It’s great because any regular person can get into it. You don’t need the sled dogs and you can do it with any number of dogs. People do it with border collies, poodles, whatever.” Cariboo Challenge organizer Len Doucette said mushers and skijorers can expect phenomenal conditions at this year’s races. “We have amazing conditions,” Doucette said. “The snow conditions are the best that we’ve had. Plowing out the parking lot this year was a huge chore

because there’s so much snow.” At the event an art contest for children and youth is slated for Jan. 11. The theme is “sled dogs and winter in the Cariboo.” For submission, children and youth can bring art work — such as paintings, carvings and sculptures — with their names and addresses on it to the 108 Heritage Site, no later than 2 p.m., on Jan. 11. “The kids can be really creative,” explains organizer Ulli Vogler. “Whatever they like to do, they can carve something, do something out of soapstone, they can build something, they can paint. Whatever comes to their mind, it’s their artwork.” The awards ceremony for artists will be held at around 2:30 p.m. Judging is based on three different age groups — three to six, seven to 12 and 12 to 18. - With files from Gaven Crites and the 100 Mile House Free Press

The 108 Mile Heritage Site will play host to the 2014 Cariboo Challenge sled dog races. The action features four-, six- and 10dog teams, as well as skijoring and twodog junior categories. The event features a $10,000 purse and will play host to some of the top mushers in B.C. and Canada. For more information, times and race schedules visit www.

Friday, Jan. 10 to Sunday, Jan. 12 Williams Lake Bantam House Tournament

Williams Lake Bantam House teams will suit up at the Cariboo Memorial Complex over the Jan. 10-12 weekend hosting teams from around the region for their home tournament. The action kicks off Friday and extends until Sunday morning with playoff finals.

The peewee Williams Lake Benny and the Jets celebrate following winning the Fire on Ice Penticton Ice Dragons Tournament.

Benny and the Jets win Fire on Ice The Williams Lake Benny and the Jets all girls peewee team skated away from the Fire on Ice Penticton Ice Dragons Tournament mid-December with gold medals strung around their necks. The tournament, which took place Dec. 13-15, featured other all-girl teams from around the province. Williams Lake faced Penticton in the final, winning 7-2. Prior to that Benny and the Jets posted three consecutive shutouts en route to the final. Williams Lake dismantled Chase, 13-0, beat Merritt, 8-0, and downed Kelowna, 7-0, before meeting Penticton in the championship. “The girls were absolutely fantastic and deserved every win and the championship,” said head

coach Ben Pierce. “We laid out a game plan on Friday before our first game and the girls stuck with it all weekend.” Pierce said heading into the tournament the only prize the team had its eye on was the championship. “Our goal was to bring the trophy back to Williams Lake,” he added. “The girls didn’t let anything get in their way and dominated all areas of the game. “It was an allaround team effort. It was great seeing how much of a team they are, both on and off the ice.” Benny and the Jets, who normally play against co-ed teams in the Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association’s house league, will head to Prince George this weekend for another all-girls tournament.

Cougars clubs return from Mac’s Greg Sabatino Staff Writer It was a tough week for both the Cariboo Cougars and the Northern Cougars Female Major Midget squad last week at the prestigious Mac’s Midget AAA Hockey Tournament in Calgary. The Northern Female Cougars, with Williams Lake’s Tessa Hare, Victoria Byer and Chantelle BeadmanRolph on the team, finished the tournament with no wins, three losses and a tie. Colton Thomas and Chase Dubois, who play for the Cariboo Cougars of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League, wound up with no wins and four losses at the event.

On the girls’ side the Northern Cougars opened with a 1-1 draw against the Winnipeg Ice. Byer chipped in an assist on the Cougars’ only goal. Game two saw the Northern Cougars face the Calgary Flyers, coming out on the wrong side of a 3-2 score. The Cougars grabbed an early twogoal in the first period with goals from Hunter Mosher and BeadmanRolph, before the Flyers potted three in a row to seal the deal. Next, the Northern Cougars met the Swift Current Wildcats. “[We] started the game fast with two power play goals from Sage Desjardins and Madison Fjellstrom, assists going to Taylor

Back and Byer, with two,” said Northern Cougars manager Scott Forrest. Again, however, the team let the lead slip away for the second straight game as Swift Current potted four consecutive unanswered goals before adding an empty netter in the 5-2 win. Byer was named the game star in the loss. “In our fourth and final game we were challenged against the Edmonton Thunder, ranked No. 2 in Alberta,” Forrest said. “Knowing this was going to be a tough game the coaching staff wanted to get a solid 60 minutes out of the team — something they hadn’t done all tournament.”

Edmonton, however, came out flying, skating to an early 3-0 lead. The Northern Cougars would settle down in the second period with a goal from Jayden Malgunas, with the assist going to Hare, to cut the deficit to two goals. Edmonton would score a late goal in the second period, and another in the third, to take a 5-1 win. “Even though [we] lost 5-1 this game was probably the most complete team effort we had for 60 minutes throughout the tournament,” he said, noting the game star went to Hare for her efforts. “The team gained much-needed experience from this tournament and are looking

forward to the Super weekend in Burnaby on Jan. 10 where they have four games versus league opponents.” Hare, meanwhile, was recognized for her play at the tournament, receiving a $1,500 scholarship from the Mac’s tournament committee. The Cariboo Cougars began with a 6-1 loss to the Notre Dame Argos, before falling 5-2 to the Red Deer Optimist Chiefs with Thomas recording a helper in the contest. The Cougars then lost for the third consecutive time, 6-2, to the Okanagan Rockets. Dubois added a goal for the Cougars in the losing effort. Lastly, the Cougars took on the Calgary Flames, falling 7-1.

Stamps beat Luckies, fall to Steelheads over weekend The Williams Lake Stampeders are back in first place in the Central Interior Hockey League East Division after splitting a pair of weekend games. Saturday the Stampeders were in Houston taking on the Luckies, skating to a 3-2 overtime win. Sunday, however, Williams Lake came out on the wrong side of a 7-4 score against last year’s league champions, the Smithers Steelheads. Houston jumped out to an early twogoal lead Saturday as Shea Long and Brad Crump, on the power play, beat Williams Lake netminder Justin Foote. Williams Lake, however, found its jets near the end of the second frame, where Matt Lees (20-2) put the Stampeders on the board, scoring on Luckies’ goaltender David Little with just 40 seconds left in the period. Lees would later send the game to overtime at 13:26 of the third period,

lighting the lamp on the power play to keep Williams Lake alive in the contest. There, a costly penalty allowed Williams Lake’s Jassi Sangha (1-2-3) to capitalize on the Luckies for the game winner. Aaron Zurak (0-3-3) and David Gore (01-1) assisted on the game winning goal. Sunday, however, the Stampeders’ 11man roster caught up with the club, allowing the Steelheads to outshoot Williams Lake, 59-26, leading to the 7-4 defeat.

Scoring for Williams Lake Sunday were Stuart Sasges (1-1-2), Darcy Flaherty (1-0-1), Gore (1-2-3) and Lees (10-1). Lighting the lamp for Smithers were Darryl Young (4-15), Ian Smith (1-3-4), Curt Dekens (1-0-1) and Kirk Meaver (10-1). With two games remaining in the regular season Williams Lake sits one point ahead of the second-place Quesnel Kangaroos in the East Division with 11

wins, four losses and one overtime loss. In the West the Terrace River Kings (11-4-1) are tied with Williams Lake for 23 points, two points ahead of the Steelheads (8-3-5). Williams Lake heads to Quesnel this Saturday, Jan. 11, for a tilt that will likely decide who will take first place in the division. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. at the Twin Ice Arenas. After that, Williams Lake hosts the Houston Luckies Jan. 19 for a makeup

game from earlier in the season. Game time is 3:30 p.m. at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

Carbon monoxide safety

Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide. • CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home and in other locations where required by applicable laws, codes or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound. • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for placement and mounting height. • Choose a CO alarm that has the label of a recognized testing laboratory. • Call your local fire department’s non-emergency number to find out what number to call if the CO alarm sounds. • Test CO alarms at least once a month; replace them according to the manufacturer’s instructions. • If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low batteries. If the battery is low, replace it. If it still sounds, call the fire department. • If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. Call for help from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel. • If you need to warm a vehicle, remove it from the garage immediately after starting it. Do not run a vehicle or other fueled engine or motor indoors, even if garage doors are open. Make sure the exhaust pipe of a running vehicle is not covered with snow. • During and after a snowstorm, make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove, and fireplace are clear of snow build-up. • A generator should be used in a well-ventilated location outdoors away from windows, doors and vent openings. • Gas or charcoal grills can produce CO — only use outside.

Williams Lake hosts under-16 Team North selection camp Greg Sabatino Staff Writer Thirty-six of the best female hockey players north of 100 Mile House converged at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex last weekend in an effort to be named to Team North for this year’s B.C. Winter Games. The camp, hosted by BC Hockey and North District co-ordinator Troy Weil and emulated to follow Hockey Canada’s high performance program, saw participants spend three days putting it all on the line in on- and off-ice drills Friday through Sunday while being evaluated throughout the weekend. Williams Lake hockey coach Roy Call, who will lead up the head coaching duties of Team North at this year’s Games in Mission, said the camp was a gruelling three days of intense competition. “We had 30 skaters and six goaltenders from as far away as Fort St. John to the north and from 100 Mile House to the south,” Call said. “I saw a really good array of talent and it’s amazing to see how this program – the high performance program — has produced such quality of players. There are some real strengths on this team.” From the 36 girls

who attended seven evaluators selected 12 forwards, six defencemen and two goaltenders who will make up Team North at the B.C. Winter Games. Williams Lake hockey players Sarah Hermsen, Laine Grace, Faith Outhouse and Grace Outhouse, along with their Williams Lake Bantam Timberwolves teammates from 100 Mile House, Cailey Mellott and Anya Levermann, were selected to the team. Hermsen, Faith, Grace, Cailey and Anya will comprise part of the forward core, while Grace will play defence. “The thing that really helped the girls that made the team is that they are girls that are very good skaters and they all work

ter, but for all the girls who made the team,” Watson said. “They work so hard. They give up all their nights and weekends for something they love and believe in. It’s amazing.” This year will be the last year BC Hockey will participate in the

very hard,” Call said. “That’s one of the things playing at a rep level gives them the chance to do. The girls who played from here understood how well you had to skate and how hard they had to play to make the team and they all worked really hard and did what they had to do.” He said making the final cuts was extremely difficult, as multiple players were around the same skill level. Additionally, Call noted several of the players who tried out this year were first-year players in the division, and added the camp is a phenomenal opportunity for the players. “It’s great for the kids whether they make the team or don’t make the team,” he said. “It’s

primarily a second-year tournament — only four or five first years made it. But for the first-year players who were released it’s a great opportunity to compare themselves and get some good feedback from quality evaluators and plan things to

work on for next year. Hopefully they can use it as a positive.” Proud grandparent of Hermsen, Jack Watson, said he was overwhelmed to see the amount of work all the girls put in at the camp. “I’m so excited, not just for my grandaugh-

PLAN NUMBER 7-3-944 THREE BEDROOM CHARACTER HOME This handsome three-bedroom character home boasts a generous veranda extending the full width of the structure, with graceful stone-based pilasters that set off the wide front entrance. A gabled dormer window adds yet more charm to the façade. Inside, the almost symmetrical lay-out, centered around a striking L-shaped staircase leading to the second floor, lends the interior a calm sense of elegance. From the front porch, entry is through a double door into a large foyer, part of which is double-height. On the right, through an archway, is the formal dining room. To the left, another archway leads to the living room, which features a fireplace. Beyond a powder room that includes a linen closet is the family room, also boasting a fireplace. Large windows overlook the back garden, and there is access to a covered patio that spans the width of the family area. Overlooking the patio is the breakfast room, where light will flood in through a trio of bayed-out windows. The spacious kitchen is separated from the rest of the living area only by a prep island. The U-shaped counter configuration will save steps for the cook, and a large pantry will provide always-welcome storage. Behind the kitchen is a mudroom, with two coat cupboards for outdoor wear and other gear. Access to the double garage will make this room a popular stop en route to storing groceries in the pantry. Upstairs, railings surround the landing, part of which is open to the floor below. The large master suite enjoys its own covered sundeck, as well as a capacious walk-in closet. The en-suite boasts a corner soaker tub with a tiled surround, as well as a shower stall, for a touch of spa-like luxury. The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom, and a second laundry room will eliminate the need to lug linens up and down the stairs.

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Barry Martin Lang on December 26, 2013 after a brief battle with cancer. We all know Barry as hard-working, full of fun, and generous to a fault. He loved to spoil family and friends: outings at the lake swimming, fishing, and tubing; sledding, skiing and tobogganing in the Cariboo snow; golfing; adventures with the grand-puppies; and food, the more varied the better, shared with delightful exuberance. Gatherings with Barry were always lively, warm, inviting and full of laughter. As innumerable family anecdotes can attest, he was always ready with a prank, too. Perhaps to his chagrin, his children were quick studies and happy to return these in kind. Barry has left a legacy of love and laughter that we are sure will always live on in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have known him. Barry will be greatly missed by all those he has left behind: his loving wife, Leona; daughter Amanda, son-inlaw Klaus; daughter Sabrina, son-in-law Jeremy, grandson Eli; daughter Tracey, son-in-law Mike, granddaughter Nyomi; daughter (and golfing partner) Melissa; son Andrew, daughter-in-law Lindsey, grandson Silas; siblings Cynthia, Rod and Gene; brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews too numerous to name yet greatly loved nonetheless. A gathering for family and friends to celebrate Barry’s life will be announced in the summer. Those wishing to honour Barry’s memory by way of donation are encouraged to do so to the Central Cariboo Hospice Palliative Care Society.
