Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer A Canada Revenue Agency scam has claimed at least one victim in Williams Lake, city councillor Surinderpal Rathor warns. Rathor told the Tribune Wednesday a close relative recently lost $3,200 to the scam. Unfortunately Rathor didn’t hear about the scam until after he phoned to warn his relative that he himself had received a

call from someone claiming to be from CRA. At first Rathor couldn’t hear the caller very well, so he told him he’d call right back on a landline. When he did, the scammer identified himself as an investigator and immediately quoted a section from CRA and alleged Rathor had been entering false numbers on his income tax returns. Even though Rathor has been voluntarily preparing hundreds

of income tax returns for low income citizens in the Williams Lake area for more than three decades, he said at first the caller sounded valid. “I was scared,” he said. “He told me they were going to press charges. He told me I had one hour to solve the problem.” When Rathor insisted the caller send him some information in the mail, he was told he couldn’t. In December, CRA put out a bulletin alerting Canadians to

Ferry cuts cause cancellations Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer The decision to cease operation of the Discovery Coast Connector’s Queen of Chilliwack has resulted in significant cancellations for tourism operators, said Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association CEO Amy Thacker. “I’ve only heard the tip of it, I’ve been speaking to operators, but they are feeling it really really hard,” she told the Weekend/Advisor. Clearwater Lake Lodge and Resort owner Bernward Kalbhenn said Thursday his reservations are 10 per cent of what they would normally be at this time of the year. Ninety-five per cent of his clients are from Europe and by now he would normally have 800 to 900 nights worth of reservations booked. “I just returned from Europe two weeks ago and they are laughing at B.C. about the ferry situation,” Kalbenn

Amy Thacker said. Earlier this month, Thacker and other representatives from the region met with three cabinet ministers in Victoria to offer some solutions, but were told afterwards the direct route would not be reinstated and that the Nimpkish ferry is the solution. After the meeting Minister Todd Stone told the Weekend Advisor he and the others appreciated the faceto-face frank discussion. He also said the government recognizes the importance of ferry service between Port Hardy and Bella Coola. “We are committed

to working with the tourism industry to ensure the long-term success of the Discovery Coast Circle Tour as well as the other ferry routes that showcase B.C.’s west coast from Port Hardy, up the Inside Passage to Prince Rupert and over to Haida Gwaii.” By the end of March, BC Ferries will announce its new schedule and rate fare structure so there will be more information for tourism operators to plan ahead, Thacker said. BC Ferries has promised that room will be made so the Nimpkish can accommodate up to four RVs, but from a tourism perspective that isn’t a solution, she added. “All our international tourism operators that sell that circle route are cancelling, those are the challenges our businesses are facing.” In response, CCCTA is working with tour operators and Destination BC to try and create new itineraries that


do not rely on the ferry to bring tourists to the region. Meanwhile, Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett has arranged a meeting with the CCCTA board on March 28 in Victoria with Minister of State for Small Business Naomi Yamamoto. “At the meeting we will discuss any mitigation and moving forward steps that may be possible,” Thacker explained. Yamamoto has also promised to meet with stakeholders in the Cariboo-Chilcotin, Bella Coola area as well, but no date has been determined yet. The ferry cancellation is the biggest challenge Thacker has faced while at the helm as CEO, but said people aren’t giving up. “There are some amazingly strong pioneers in this region that I have faith will continue to have their voices heard and make the business case,” she said. “We’re not done and we’re not giving up.”

Beverly Evans, executive assistant Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association and Christopher Nicolson, president Tourism Sun Peaks, participate in a brain storming session about iconic tourism experiences the region can offer during a workshop hosted by Destination BC in Williams Lake Thursday.

Revitalizing Tourism B.C. Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer For more than 30 years, B.C. has used the tagline Supernatural British Columbia to inspire millions of people to visit the province, said Destination BC CEO Marsha Welden. “It continues to be a highly regarded brand and was last reviewed and refreshed in preparation for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games,” Welden noted


If you have a child that swallowed something poisonous, call your local poison control centre right away. Have the poison container with you and listen carefully to the questions you will be asked: what was swallowed, how much, what the container label says and if the child has had anything to eat or drink since the event. Speed is of the essence so listen carefully and act as directed. There seems to be some mixed signals about drinking alcohol while pregnant. Some stories have said it was OK in moderation but the best advice on this one is to not drink any alcohol while pregnant. Many thousands of children in Canada are born yearly with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome which causes a range of problems from physical disabilities to brain damage. Pregnancy and alcohol do not mix.

in a video being directed to participants at a regional workshop hosted by Destination BC in Williams Lake Thursday at the Ramada Inn. Workshop participants were encouraged to focus on the personality of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast as a tourist destination. “If we want to attract visitors, we have to give them a reason to visit that is distinctive and memorable,” Kathleen Lorentsen,

director marketing and communication for Destination BC, told the group. “It’s not something people can sit in offices and invent, it has to be based on the reality of who we are as a place, who we are as a people, our culture and our heritage,” Lorentsen said. The region’s of B.C. need to to become known for a few things that spark and grab people’s attention, she added.

Here’s a suggestion about alcohol and pregnancy: The decision to have a child is usually a mutually—agreed decision between husband and wife. They both want the healthiest child possible. To this end, the husband can support his wife by also abstaining from alcohol for the term of the pregnancy.

RCMP respond to more than 100 calls Williams Lake RCMP responded to more than 100 calls for service during the weekend ranging from the usual disturbances, assaults, traffic complaints and a Facebook scam. Friday, March 14 At 12:17 p.m. police received a complaint from an individual to report they had a conversation with a “friend” on Facebook, who had informed them they had won $150,000, but would have to send $1,100 to a person in Texas from Facebook.  Since then the victim of the fraud has been in

contact with the friend who confirmed they had not sent this information via Facebook. It appears in this case the victim was lured by unknown person(s) on Facebook and had the victim convinced they had won the lottery money.  The victim sent $1,100 by way of Western Union in hopes of winning the lottery.  This is a fraud that others may fall victim to.  Police continue to warn people they should be cautious when taking information via the internet or other electronic

means and to never disclose personal information or banking information unless verified. Saturday, March 15 At approximately 2:45 a.m. RCMP located a male in a parking lot of a downtown business. This person had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He was further found to be in possession of weapons and in breach of his probation. The male was taken into custody pending charges.   At 11 p.m. police conducted a two-hour road check on Broadway Ave North at Summit Street,

checking 20 to 30 vehicles resulted in: One 90-day Immediate Roadside Suspension and 30-day Vehicle Impoundment, one 12hour driving suspension, four violation tickets and three notice and orders. Saturday, March 15 The RCMP received a report of a theft in-progress at 11:02 p.m. from an individual who stated that two youth males were pushing two quads down Pigeon Avenue. Police immediately attended resulting in the youth fleeing the area leaving the quads in the street. The male

youths were later located by police and arrested for theft over $5,000. Charges against the youths are pending. Saturday, March 16 At approximately 4:05 p.m. police received a report that a red/black Polaris Sportsman 550 XP with a plow mounted on it had been stolen from a back yard on Fowler Road sometime between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or Crimestoppers.  The matter is still under investigation.

Award of merit nominations open until March 31 A disappointingly small number of nominations have been received this year for the city’s Accessibility Award of Merit. The award nomination deadline is coming up on March 31 and the Williams Lake Accessibility Advisory Committee is hoping that more nominations will be received by then. “Replies have been trickling in but more would certainly be welcome,” says Deb Radolla the city’s active living manager and staff representative for the accessibility committee. “I know that there are many individuals, organizations, and businesses that have made significant contributions in the last two years to improve accessibility in

the city. “The committee would like to hear these stories and celebrate positive change. If you could consider a story, that would be great.” Information on nomination criteria and the nomination forms are available at or at the Cariboo Memorial Complex. The WLAAC’s mis-

but must provide a service to the citizens of Williams Lake. Some examples that meet nomination criteria include providing accessible environments such as playgrounds, parking, walkways, paths, ramps, wheelchair accessible washrooms, sufficient hand rails, wheelchair height counters, snow removal and more. Nominations can be

forwarded to Williams Lake Accessibility Advisory Committee, care of Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, 525 Proctor Street, Williams Lake, B.C. V2G4J1, or email to acail@ or fax to 250-398-7884. Radolla and notes that the Wheelchair Taxi Survey is also available for completion until March 31.

Council looking at $10 per day child care

nature camp a hit

Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer City council is advocating a provincial $10 a day child care program in B.C. “I can see this coming to the forefront of the political scene in the next two to five years,” Coun. Sue Zacharias said. “If B.C. is going to keep on track with improving its business economy, improving more workers in the work force, and improving the tax generated by people

working.” The Quebec day care program has already seen a return on its $7 a day day care program, she added. Last week council ratified a poll of its members to approve submission of a resolution to the North Central Local Government Association to advocate for the implementation of a Community Plan for a Public System of Integrated Early Care and Learning, and a call for action to begin steps

towards implementing a $10/Day Child Care Program for BC. “It’s an interesting concept and makes a lot of sense to move the care of a child and also add education into that early care,” Zacharias said, adding it reduces crime and gives children a good start with qualified professionals looking after them in the early years. The Union of British Columbia Municipalities has endorsed the Community Plan, the city said.

New funding from the CKNW Orphan’s Fund will help the Children Who Witness Abuse Program in Williams Lake increase its presence in local schools. “I’ve already been going into the schools to teach violence prevention but this will really help by giving me some extra funding,” said Tamara

Garreau, who runs the program for the Cariboo Friendship Society. Garreau works with teachers, parents and parent advisory councils, and if invited by a teacher will come into a classroom and make a presentation. “Teachers that are interested will give me a call,” Garreau said, adding she’s hoping to make the program a regular thing in as many schools as pos-

sible. Garreau has a collection of puppets she uses, especially for younger students. “Children up to Grade 5 will usually accept the puppets quite well,” she said. The CKNW Orphans’ Fund is dedicated to enhancing the lives of children with physical, mental and social challenges living in B.C. Communities. Garreau received $1,000 from the fund.

When you think of orthotic therapy, you might think of plaster cast molding, and you would be correct. But orthotic therapy (custom inserts worn in shoes) is in the midst of major technological advancement. Metascan™, a computerized gait and pressure analysis system from Footmax, is an innovative diagnostic tool that analyses foot function when a patient stands, walks or runs across a mat. The result is a computerized gait analysis report that provides a thorough clinical assessment to help the doctor prescribe custom orthotics - literally within minutes.

Tough shoes to fill The resignation of Finance Minister Jim Flaherty on Tuesday is a pivotal moment for the Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Flaherty has been the only finance minister Harper has had, since he became prime minister in January, 2006. A former Ontario finance minister, he has developed a reputation for being careful with taxpayers’ dollars, seeking ways to save them money (a reduction in the GST and Tax Free Savings Accounts being two examples) and paying down the debt as soon as possible. In many ways, he resembles Paul Martin, who was one of Canada’s most successful finance ministers and did a great deal to keep the government of Jean Chretien in power. Unlike Martin, Flaherty is moving beyond federal politics. Martin coveted Chretien’s job and the struggle between them did a great deal of damage to the government

and the Liberal Party. Harper does not have a lot of ministers or backbenchers who could replace Flaherty. He has chosen Joe Oliver, the 73-year-old natural resources minister, to take over. Clearly, his tenure will not be as long as Flaherty’s. Oliver does have a lot of experience in the financial industry, and is a competent minister. He should be able to take the government into the October, 2015 election. He does not have the experience of overseeing the massive spending of a large government body. However, he can use the tools Flaherty has handed over, and present a balanced budget in the next fiscal year. That will be a plus for a government going into the election. Economic competence is one of the Conservative government’s core strengths, and is vital for a finance minister. – Black Press

There is a lot of singing, dancing, rebellion and even a little romance between revolution leader Bobby Strong played by Oren Barter (left), and the big bad corporation owner’s daughter Hope Cladwell played by Amanda Downing (right) in Studio Theatre’s production of Urinetown: The Musical that started its three week run Wednesday evening.

Time in or time out for our little animals; and kids, too Winter is almost over; spring presses its fragile green head up through the soil, and already we are beginning to worry about summer. Whatever are we going to do with the kids while they are out of school? The concern began with a parent’s muttered moan, “To prevent headache, do what the bottle says — keep away from children!” So as my grown kids are briefly out of town, here are three things I might do over if I was starting again. 1. Trade time outs for time in — time with parents, stories, lap-time, and hugs. The tiniest dose of stillness can build a strong, trusted foundation. 2. Give energy to behaviours I want, not those I don’t. Delight



Living out Loud

with Rita Corbett

replaced discipline one suppertime when I fell off my chair to a child’s unexpected “Please!” And perhaps it was a simple fear of embarrassment but after we tried that approach, our next family excursion was shockingly normal! 3. Let the kids hear ‘No!’ A

cute little five-year-old, smartly dressed in high-fashion clothes, recently appeared on my Facebook page and coyly cocked his head toward the lens. The caption read, “How could you say ‘No’ to this dude?” There will be many ‘nos’ in his future — if a ‘no’ can’t be accepted graciously now, it might be timely to practice a few more. And if that’s too tough, parents might practice ‘no’ loudly in the closet. Signs of insanity can be highly advantageous! Parents generally ricochet between treats and threats with all sorts of unaffordable in-betweens. And the children ricochet in response — either by demanding more rewards or skillfully increasing manipulation. The parents are afraid to

cross the kids. And the children, like animals, can smell the fear. Children need presence, not presents. The most fatal error we make as parents is to treat children like animals. Simple conditioning may work for a while; an occasional rear end alignment might eliminate a wobble or two, but nothing will ever replace thinking. There needs to be something beyond, “Mommie doesn’t like it ...” And deeper than, “Daddy is coming home soon ...” Something better than escalating bribes and reprimands. Some of our instincts need altering. Accordingly, “Let’s discuss that tomorrow,” offers 24 hours of prime-time thinking. “Technically, a teen can be proved “crazy” — just ask Mi-

chael J. Bradley who wrote that book. Maybe it’s time for parents to act crazy, too. The next time a child misbehaves — try insanity. “Merry Christmas, son — I hope you have a great day!” Or thank them for the nasties, “Awesome!” Might change the balance of things, and I’ve had so much fun acting crazy it’s hardly pretend any more. Our job is not to make our children happy. Our job is to make them good — then they will be happy. My kids are coming home; my grandson will be here soon. It’s time, once again, to put a cushion by my dining room chair. Rita Corbett is a freelance columnist with the Tribune/Advisor.

Import players like Fred Thomas and many others have helped shape Williams Lake, not just on the ice, but in the community with their volunteer contributions. Thank you to our Stampeders alumni. Williams Lake wouldn’t be the same without you! Thank you also to all the volunteers who made Williams Lake a great host for the Cup. Many community members were at the rink all week to make the tournament a success. Congratulations to our Tier 2 Bantam rep team, who earned a bronze medal at provincials this week. The Tier 2 PeeWee rep team played for bronze Wednesday night after going 3-0 in the round robin. Williams Lake produces great hockey at every level! I attended a human trafficking seminar Wednesday hosted by the Williams Lake RCMP and Community Policing. There was a great turnout, and a powerful message from RCMP Corporal Jassy Bindra. Human trafficking isn’t just about sex; it’s also about forced labour. Thank you to Safer Communi-

From the Mayor’s Chair Kerry Cook ty co-ordinator Dave Dickson for inviting Bindra to Williams Lake to raise awareness of this very important issue. Local

RCMP Const. Sharon Forbes will help with the effort to bring awareness into our schools. Congratulations to Red Tomato Pies, who received their trophy for the 2013 Saputo Pizza Hall of Fame title. Voters chose the local pizza parlour, owned by Amber and Jason Akeson, as the best in the country. Way to go Amber and Jason! Current council members and five mayors and former council-

lors all enjoyed a tea and cake at the museum Saturday to celebrate the city’s 85th birthday. Besides elected officials, longserving community pioneers were invited and honoured. Thanks to Museum staff and volunteers. I’m already looking forward to a big birthday celebration on May 3. Beginning with a community breakfast and ending with birthday cake and a dance, there will be fun for the

whole family all day. There will be family activities, games, and a carnival before a community dinner and cake. This will be a true community celebration, with many businesses, organizations, and individuals donating time, money, and supplies. Make sure to mark the date on your calendars — this will be a can’t-miss event for all! Kerry Cook is the Mayor of Williams Lake.

Looking for conversation to lead to better forest management If you recall in my last column, I estimated what I thought was a conservative amount of biomass (i.e. 10 per cent of the annual allowable cut) left as residual material. I would like to discuss a more comprehensive approach using the forest inventory maps and data base. The Ministry of Forests has made some major technical advances since my career started in the early 1970s. When I started with the inventory section in the 1980s we were just starting to digitize the first forest cover maps. It took about 10 years to finally get all of the provincial maps in digital form. Prior to the digital format any map requests were produced one at a time from a

Forest Ink Jim Hilton hand drafted master. Last year (at no charge) I got the updated inventory maps for the entire province all in one file downloaded over the internet. Someone in the government had anticipated the need for biomass data so they now included the weight of stems, branches, foliage and bark as well as the volume of the saw logs. What I did was convert the biomass to cubic meters per

hectare so I could approximate what was left after the sawlogs were removed. When I used the whole stems and subtracted the sawlogs, I got 23 per cent residual left behind and when I include the bark and branches I estimated more than 30 per cent residual. The data is on maps and in a data base so we can better predict the kind, amount and location of the cull material. I want to caution the readers that the use of the inventory biomass data is a very new concept and to my knowledge has not gone through a rigorous field confirmation. I am also assuming there could be a wide variation throughout the province, especially the more productive areas.

Before the discussion on cull piles is complete there should be some mention of the provincial waste assessment program, which deals with the amount of sawlogs allowed on the block following logging. This is not an area I am familiar with, so I will discuss this material later after I have had a chance to see how relevant it is to this topic. I did find one reference to large burn piles in the Okanagan. The estimate there was from 20 to 30 per cent of the prelogging stand in the pile. My vision of Forest Ink is to stimulate a conversation with the Tribune/Weekend Advisor readers which will lead to better forest management. In my opinion some of the

most valuable input and practical ideas will come from the people who work in the forest industry. The road builders, chain saw operators, people running the processors and skidders and of course, the truck drivers. These people are in the woods every day and I trust have opinions regarding some of my estimates of what is out there and how we could best put it to use. It would be extremely valuable to have their input and discussion. Jim Hilton is a professional agrologist and forester who has lived and worked in the Cariboo Chilcotin for the past 40 years. Now retired, Hilton still volunteers his skills with local community forests organizations.

Talk about Quebec separation raises new questions Most people in Canada do not believe that Quebec should separate and become its own country. Party Quebecois Leader Pauline Marois has stated her party would like to hold a referendum asking Quebecers if they want to have their own country. She has even mentioned that her government or nation or whatever she is going to call that province, will still use Canadian currency. Isn’t that nice. I wonder how many folks are going to want to get a passport to get into Quebec? That is another proposal that has been discussed during the current election campaign where Marois is looking for a majority. What will the Que-

Contemplating Ken

with Ken Wilson

bec society look like after they declare their independence? How will the new country replace the income of the federal employees? How will they replace their aging infrastructure that will amount to billions of dollars and no federal help? Will the Quebec country have military and how will it protect its borders? Would Canada be better off without Quebec? We would have only one official language, we would have fewer

members of parliament and senators to pay. We also would not have to go through the Quebecois demand for a separation every time they come into power in that province. Perhaps this will all go away if Marois does not get elected and then there will be no referendum. *** MLA for Victoria Juan de Fuca John Horgan is the second person to throw their hat in the race for the NDP leadership. MLA Mike Farnworth was the first to announce his intention to run for the top job in the New Democrat party. Farnworth, who is known as a nice guy, stated the NDP were gutted in the last election.

Horgan is reputed to be the tough guy and maybe that’s what the party needs to do to replace Adrian Dix, who took the party down in the last election. The current NDP house leader is being supported by Carole James who lost her job after a caucus revolt. The NDP is a party in turmoil and it may get worse before the September 28 leadership announcement. I expect there will be at least one more person, perhaps two, who will put their name forward for the New Democratic Party leadership. I haven’t heard that Charlie Wyse is putting his name forward for the big job! Ken Wilson is a freelance columnist with the Tribune/Advisor.

June’s friend and colleague Shirley Pat Chamberlain (front left) delivered an inspiring tribute to June and women’s centre director Kirsten Stark joined in presenting the award. Pictured in back are June’s daughter-inlaw Shelley Striegler, grandson Robert Striegler and hiding out of sight, her son Robert Striegler. In accepting her award June, a long-time educator, delivered some sage advice for both men and women about life and encouraged both men and women to do what they love and keep working to become the best person they can be. Quoting poetry she said: “hold fast to dreams because if dreams die life is a broken bird that cannot fly.” Chamberlain said she used to want to be like June, but she learned from her mentor to aspire to be herself, the best possible version of herself she could be.

Surrounded by family and friends June Striegler (centre) was presented with the Woman with Heart Award by the Women’s Contact Society at an International Women’s Day event held at Thompson Rivers University, March 8. June’s friend and colleague Shirley Pat Chamberlain (front left) delivered an inspiring tribute to June and women’s centre director Kirsten Stark joined in presenting the award. Pictured in back are June’s daughter-inlaw Shelley Striegler, grandson Robert Striegler and hiding out of sight, her son Robert Striegler. In accepting her award June, a long-time educator, delivered some sage advice for both men and women about life and encouraged both men and women to do what they love and keep working to become the best person they can be. Quoting poetry she said: “hold fast to dreams because if dreams die life is a broken bird that cannot fly.” Chamberlain said she used to want to be like June, but she learned from her mentor to aspire to be herself, the best possible version of herself she could be.

Yunesit’in building wins design award Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer The designer of the new health centre at Yunesit’in (Stone Indian Band) said winning a Wood Works BC 2014 Wood Design Award early this month was exciting. David Nairne and Associates Ltd. architect Dave Kitazaki who designed the building said the Institutional Wood Design award is a boon for the entire Chilcotin. “I’m happy for the clients because the design was based on their tradition. All the chiefs and the community recognized that and winning the award is good for them and all of the Tsilhqo’tin in and around there.” When he worked with community members on the design, they were clear about what they wanted, Kitazaki said. Wood WORKS! is a national industry-led initiative of the Canadian Wood Council, with a goal to support innovation and provide leadership on the use of wood and wood products. Wood WORKS! BC provides education, training and technical expertise to building and design professionals involved with non-residential construction projects throughout B.C. The annual Wood Design Awards evening recognizes leadership and innovation in wood use, while being an opportunity to publicly

honour and encourage continued excellence in the building and design community. There were 113 nominations in 12 categories for the 2014 awards from all over the province, as well as some national and international project submissions, including projects in Qingdao, China and the Yukon Territory. All projects showcase distinctive and unique qualities of wood such as strength, beauty, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. The award ceremony, held in Vancouver, included a 10-year retrospective video journey which gave those who attended a glimpse of how wood design and building innovation has advanced over the past decade. Wood Champion award winners from the past 10 years credited the awards program for pushing innovation in design and building with wood and encouraging new types and sizes of buildings, beautiful aesthetics, increased structural performance and scale, and environmentally responsible design. The building at Yunesit’in was completed in 2011 and was constructed out of Douglas Fir. In its praise the jury said the building has beautiful and simple form and everything is well thought through. “This is a contemporary building that recognizes its roots,” the jury commented.

Happy Spring!

Walk-Rite changes hands Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer The owner of the second oldest retail store in Williams Lake says she has big shoes to fill. Last month Melanie Ablitt and her husband Troy bought Walk-Rite Shoes. And ever since they took ownership, former owner Marion Mortensen has been helping them settle in. “Marion’s been just wonderful helping me with the transition,” Melanie says. “She comes in regularly to help me and I know I can call her anytime.” Marion even accompanied Melanie to a big fall and winter shoe buying show in Burnaby recently. It was there, Melanie realized Walk-Rite has quite a large selection of shoes in comparison to other outlets. “We’re the second biggest independently owner-operated shoe store in Western Canada,” she explains. “I’ve learned that privately retail owned is kind of a dying breed, but we’re definitely here for the long term.” The couple were inspired to buy the store because they were hoping to diversify. Troy owns a small trucking company and Melanie was the bookkeeper. She also had a couple of other bookkeeping positions. Pointing to a framed photograph of their son Dayton who is graduating this year, and commenting that Troy has the entrepreneurial spirit, Melanie says the timing was right to buy the store. “Everything lined

Marion Mortensen chats with Melanie Ablitt. up and we thought it would be something we’d like to take on.” Marion owned the store for 36 years, purchasing it in February 1978 from John and Edie Burkowski who opened the store in 1950. The Burkowskis were successful so Marion followed in their footsteps, eventually adding her own spin, she recalls. Over the years, she built up a large outof-town clientele who appreciated the better quality brands, and the “old-fashioned” service that has never disappeared. Customers come from Quesnel, 100 Mile House and even Prince George. “A good portion of the customers I’ve noticed may have moved out of town or are living back east and when they come home to visit their family member then they stop in to see what we have,” Melanie notices. “Recently a lady visiting from Toronto was trying on some of the French shoes from our UTV line she thought were unique.” Marion continued to do fittings, convinced that good customer

service is crucial to any business success, and Melanie will continue doing the same. “Customers like their brands and return to replace that brand because of the quality and comfort,” she adds. “Once you try a good quality brand, it’s hard to go back. We’ll be keeping our existing lines and I’m excited about bringing in some new brand names, as well.” From casual to dressy with the gamut running in between, there is a wide variety to choose from, including a large collection of nursing clogs that are comfortable and practical yet colourful. Melanie also likes the fact she and Troy are the third owners of the business. They’ve heard appreciation from the community that the store is going to remain open. “The local support has been fantastic,” Melanie adds. Troy was born in Williams Lake and both he and Melanie attended all of their schooling here. They also have a 14-year-old daughter Rianna.

“I love the small town feeling of Williams Lake where everything isn’t so rushed and busy,” Melanie muses. “Living here for a number of years you always see and recognize people.” When she goes into other business she enjoys knowing the first names of people, adding it’s nice to see friendly faces all the time. “It makes doing business easier.” Without hesitation, she admits to always being a “shoe girl,” with a good selection of shoes at home. She counts herself lucky it worked out to buy the store because she’s having lots of fun. Because of the wide variety customers are encouraged to come in and try on something they wouldn’t normally wear. “You might just find a treasure that you fall in love with,” she suggests. Sometimes there will be dozens of boxes all around as the customer tries on a variety and that’s great, she adds. The idea is to make sure people don’t feel like they’re putting the employees out. “We want them to feel comfortable and that they aren’t wasting our time. It’s important to get the right one.” There are three other women working in the store — including Sandra Dickson who came out of retirement to help with the transition as well. “And Marion’s help has been invaluable,” Melanie adds.

“A Deep Breath of Hope” Last week, as I grabbed my morning coffee and sat down in the living room to read and journal, I made the mistake of looking outside. Snow was falling—again. I said out loud to no one in particular “Really? Really??” New flakes fell on old piles of snow and ice that look more like glaciers. I never checked the statistics for this winter, but I would bet this has been a long one. The other day I saw the first patch of last year’s grass appear from under the receding ice line and I experienced something I had not felt for at least a montha deep breath of hope. Hope reminded me that Spring will eventually win the battle with Winter, bringing the colors of the garden once again. Why should I hope for what I can reasonably know to be true? Spring WILL arrive. There is something about hope that surpasses reasonability. Hope is a stronger motivator in the human spirit than rationality. Human reason is a great treasure. As important as human rationality is, however, hope is that much more precious. Some have rightly said that hope is like oxygen—we simply cannot live without it. For many, hope is just a shorter way to spell ‘optimism’.


BY JEREMY VOGT Optimism is a vague positive outlook that things will be better in the future. We have all known an optimist or two, but have you ever met someone who was truly hopeful? Positive psychology defines hope as “the overall perception that one’s goals can be met.” In other words, this definition says our hope is based on our ability to select a goal and see it achieved. Goal oriented hope enables a person to lean forward, attempting to create a future they have envisioned using effort and ingenuity. I wonder if this understanding of hope really

holds water over time. I believe true, lasting hope has to be built on something stronger than goals that I set for myself. If my hope is built on personal goals alone, I have little reason to hope. Most of my goals lay unfulfilled in the embarrassing dustbin of my short life. Abandon all hope ye who enter there! Hope must be built on something greater than my power to fulfill goals. I appreciate the Holman Bible Dictionary’s definition of Hope: “Trustful expectation, particularly with reference to the fulfillment of God’s promises. Biblical hope is the anticipation of a favorable outcome under God’s guidance…hope is the confidence that what God has done for us in the past guarantees our participation in what God will do in the future.” Hope placed in God and God’s promises can overcome unmet goals and long winters alike. As Spring begins on the calendar and inches forward in our yards, I will leave you with this blessing from the Apostle Paul in Romans 15:13, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (New International Version)

Inspiration comes in many forms Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer Angie Holdal is finding great enjoyment these days learning to play an unusual instrument. It is called a Guzheng, an ancient form of Chinese zither. Angie played the instrument for guests attending the opening at the Station House Gallery earlier this month and plans to play it again for women attending the Women’s Spirituality Circle conference coming up March 28-29. She has a wide variety of interests and started playing the Guzheng about a year ago. “I am also learning to play the Xiao flute and Erhu, an ancient Chinese violin,” Angie says. “With the flute I’m a little less than proficient. I just got the Erhu, so I’m not sure you can call it playing yet, but I’m getting there.” Angie has lived at Rose Lake all of her life and has a wide variety of interests including cooking, crochet, water-colour painting especially birch trees and winter scenes, and playing musical instruments. She has a passion for cooking and cooks most nights for her parents and sister, often using traditional Sami ingredients which she breathes new life into using local foods and love. She is currently taking an online course offered by McGill University called Food For Thought, which is an introduction to food chemistry. She says McGill offers on-campus versions of the course but she isn’t quite ready for a move to Montreal.

Angie Holdal plays her Guzheng at the show opening at the Station House Gallery earlier this month and will be playing it at the Women’s Spirituality Circle conference March 28-29. “It is demanding but very fun,” Angie says. “Next year I hope to register for Harvard’s Science and Cooking introductory to food science.” Angie says she came to be involved with the Women’s Spirituality Circle last year after buying the Spicing up the Cariboo cookbook at the Made in the Cariboo Fair at Christmas time. “I was inspired by this cookbook which describes food and culture, and it encouraged me to join these ladies for the Women’s Spirituality Circle,” Angie says. “I am very interested in spirituality, my own and others.” She has had some dietary issues which has sparked her interest in food and spirituality and these days she is concentrating on eating only foods that would grow and are native to northern Scandinavia, preparing them with as much locally grown produce as possible. “I feel great on this diet,” Angie says. “I have Sami heritage in my background, and this is the culture I feel

most connected to. I hope one day I can visit Norwegian Sapmi (Sapmi is the northern regions of Norway Sweden Finland and the kola peninsula of Russia).  She says their family’s acreage at Rose Lake is more of a pet farm than an actual farm with some pet chickens, rabbits, three dogs, a cat and a big beautiful red

barn. “All of our animals are pets and tend to live to great ages,” Angie says. She finds a great deal of spiritual energy living in the country. Once a long time ago when she was down, she says she went out by the barn to think. There are always lots of birds around but when you come close

she says they usually scatter, but this day she was sitting there thinking when one of the birds came right up to her and tossed a seed at her. That action kind of lightened the moment and gave her a renewed sense of universal connectedness between people which she is exploring with the Women’s Spirituality Circle. Angie will be playing the Guzheng during lunch and breaks at the Women’s Spirituality Circle conference March 28 and 29 at the Lake City Secondary Williams Lake campus.

RUSH next up Tuesday for film club Krista Liebe Special to Tribune/Advisor Spring Break is coming to an end and the Williams Lake Film Club is back. Our next film will be shown this coming Tuesday, March 25, at 7 p.m. at the Gibraltar Room, back doors open at 6:30 p.m. Our next screening is Rush, a film by renowned American director Ron Howard. Yes, Rush is about the merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula-1 competitors James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). Am I a fan of Formula-1 racing? No. Am I a fan of life? Absolutely and completely. This film shows a rare slice of life. Two men of similar backgrounds, friends over quite a few years, caught up in the cutthroat competitive world of racing. It shows their male vanity and with that their male insecurities. We normally see this depicted by women on the screen, rarely ever by men. The film shows this so well that we end up caring a lot about both

Scene from the film Rush coming up next week. of them. About “The Rat” Niki Lauda’s nickname because of his severe overbite and not very attractive looks, and about his playboy friend, young, very handsome James Hunt, who keeps his anxieties hidden even when he is suffering bouts of pre-race nausea. The film is full of action, mostly filmed in the original locales with original cars obtained from collectors. It is full of glitz and glamour, and it shows us the people behind all of this posturing and fighting for first place. It shows us the fun, the emptiness, the all out commitment,

the despair. The acting, the directing, the writing – all are first class. The film has won 4 awards and been given 34 nominations. It was huge in Europe, but did not attract the North American audience. After all, who is Niki Lauda? Who is James Hunt? They never raced for NASCAR. Niki Lauda just celebrated his 65th birthday on February 22. After retiring from Formula-1 in 1979 he started a charter airline called Lauda Air which flew from Austria to holiday destinations in Europe and North Africa. As he needed more

money to run his business he came out of retirement in 1982. He even had his commercial pilot’s license and was known to be the captain on his airline’s flights at times. His airline is now a subsidiary of Air Berlin. In addition, he has written five books. James Hunt died of a heart attack in 1993 at the age of 45, at his home in Wimbledon, London, England, just hours after proposing via telephone to his then girlfriend Helen Dyson, who was 18 years his junior and working as a waitress. He left two sons by his second wife. And by that time he had lost a significant portion of

his money in bad business deals. This film is all about the choices you have in life – and the choices you make. About the gifts given to you – and what you do with them. And this simple story is told so very well in Rush! Regular admission is $9, for Film Club members $8, and $6 for seniors (65+) and students, HS and TRU.

Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo

Shred the Nar set to wrap up adventure Greg Sabatino Staff Writer A pair of Williams Lake residents embarked on an ambitious adventure this winter, attempting to ski/ snowboard every ski hill in the province. Oliver Berger, 32, and Morgan Day, 27, both avid advocates for the local ski community and Mt. Timothy employees who were lucky enough to secure a few months off of work for the trip, will complete the final leg of their journey this weekend — one that started at the beginning of January and has taken them to close to 40 ski hills in B.C. Preparations for the trip, later billed Shred the Nar, began in the fall. Both Berger and Day said it’s something they’ve always thought about doing. “As a kid I always wanted to ride every mountain in B.C.,” Berger said. “It’s been a goal, but I never really pulled the trigger on it. So, we talked about it, he [Day] seemed gung-ho about it, and we just said let’s do it.” See DUO Page B2

Frequent BATHROOM TRIPS? Bell Prostate Ezee Flow Tea #4a

An unfortunate turn of events late in both Oliver Berger (right) and Morgan Day’s goal to ski/snowboard every ski hill in B.C. this winter left Day with a dislocated shoulder, and Berger to nurse a torn ligament back to health. The duo, however, said they had the time of their lives.

Duo has experience of a lifetime Continued From Page B1 Day, meanwhile, had become accustomed to posting live video snow reports from Mt. Timothy daily. The idea to document the trip via GoPro Camera and create a Facebook page, Shred the Nar, seemed like a no brainer, they said. “It’s something nobody’s really ever done before,” Berger said. “So, we said, let’s make a couple videos from each place and try to promote each little hill a bit, and promote what we’re doing, and maybe it’ll turn into something bigger. Who knows?” Trips, spanning thousands of kilometres in ‘Bluebird,’ a 1977 Chevrolet van equipped with a queen-sized sleeping quarters and a cooking area, began to last up to three weeks. Every time a ski hill was visited, no matter the size, a new video showcasing each mountain’s assets would pop up on Youtube. “All the hills were a blast but we especially enjoyed our days at the smaller, local hills, that we rode,” Day said. “Personally, I’m attracted to them more as they have a really good local feel, relaxed vibes, great snow and usually no crowd. “To share our experiences from working at

Mt. Timothy and to hear how they run has been a blast, and hopefully the two of us can apply some of this knowledge gained into our local mountain.” Day said he hopes people will see the videos and be inspired to ride and to support their local hills. “In this day and age everyone from Troll Resort, to Harper Mountain, and even the larger hills like Big White can use a little help,” he said. “If our videos encourage some new people to go ride then we’re absolutely thrilled. “Some of the best days riding were at the smaller hills — Summit Lake, Tabor Mountain and Shames Mountain just outside of Terrace.” One highlight Berger and Day said stands out is their trip to the newlyopened Hudson’s Hope Ski Area. “That was pretty great,” Berger said. “It’s a super-short handle tow and it’s the first season they’ve been open. We were there on day four of operations and they’d been working on getting it going for three, four years. “To them and to us it was awesome. We got to help promote them and we got some fresh, virgin tracks down some runs no one had ever ridden. Who knows, maybe they’ll name it Shred the

Nar?” There were, unfortunately, a pair of black marks on the trip. In February while riding Murray Ridge in Fort St. James Berger suffered a torn ligament in his shoulder, requiring him to take a short break from the trip. Later, While riding Hemlock Valley Resort in Agassiz two weeks ago, Day suffered a dislocated shoulder, also tearing ligaments, putting him on the injured reserve for this weekend’s trip to Vancouver Island. Both, however, have zero regrets. “It’s really been the journey of a lifetime,” Day said. “I can’t say enough about the overwhelming support we’ve had along the way. Family, friends, all the staff at Mt. Timothy, as well as Dale Taylor and Eric Sannes at the Rush FM, for helping us spread the word of Shred the Nar.” They added the sightseeing, the people they met, and the road trips helped complete the adventure. “That window screen, it’s a TV with no commercials,” Berger said. “It just keeps changing. It’s the best show ever.” To check out Shred the Nar’s videos search for ‘Shred the Nar’ on Facebook.

McLellan back in action tonight in Quebec Greg Sabatino Staff Writer After a one-year hiatus Williams Lake professional boxer Roberto McLellan is set to step back in the ring in Quebec tonight. Roberto, who has a professional record of six wins, two losses and one draw, will take on 25-year-old Francis Lafreniere (4-5-2) in the Quebec native’s hometown of Point-Claire, Que., in a 162-pound catchweight bout that will be featured as the main event of the evening’s card. Stepping into the lion’s den to face a hometown favourite, however, isn’t something Roberto, 29, is concerned about. “I get the opposite of cheers. I get the boos,” Roberto joked. “But that’s just as good as the cheers. You either want one or the other. If the fans are quiet that’s bad.” Roberto is coming off a questionable unanimous decision loss to Kitchener, Ont.’s Fitz ‘The Whip’ Vanderpool from last February — a

I don’t feel he’s been hit like I can hit him.” - Roberto McLellan fight they would later appeal the decision of to no success. He said it’s partially why he decided to take the fight with Lafreniere on just three weeks notice. “Yeah, it’s been a year so that’s part of the reason I took this one,” he said. “Nothing else was coming up. They use this trick, though. I found out he’s been training for seven weeks, and I get four.” Lafreniere is no stranger to Roberto, however, as Roberto’s brother Stuart McLellan, also a professional boxer, defeated Lafreniere last September in Halifax, N.S., for the National Boxing Authority Maritime Title. “I’ve seen lots of his fights,” Roberto said. “I know he’s a decent

puncher. He’s not going to knock you out with one shot but he’s always there and he comes straight forward constantly. “His footwork is not the best so we’re going to utilize that, and just hit him hard. I don’t feel he’s been hit like I can hit him.” In preparation for the fight Roberto said he’s trained with members of the Williams Lake Boxing Club, and put in work individually. He’ll be travelling to Quebec with his dad and WLBC coach Gary McLellan, who will be in his corner for the fight. “I’m ready,” he said. “I’ve trained hard, I’ve pushed. I do a lot of training by myself and I just push myself every day. “Everything’s good. No predictions, just the victory.”

High Bar Gang nominated for Juno Former lakecity singer/songwriter Angela Harris’s band The High Bar Gang has won a JUNO Award nomination for its debut record Lost and Undone: A Gospel Bluegrass Companion. The Vancouver-based bluegrass group features the vocal harmonies of Harris, Shari Ulrich, Wendy Bird and Barney Bentall, that have become the band’s signature sound. With solid backing from bassist Rob Beck-

er, multi instrumentalist Eric Reed on banjo, mandolin and dobro, as well as band leader Colin Nairn on guitar and mandolin, the 14 songs on Lost and Undone bring back the sounds of a simpler time. Lost and Undone was recorded simply and in mono in Bentall’s living room and released Oct. 22, 2013 under the True North Records label. The album includes stirring versions of Daniel Prayed, Walking in Jerusalem, Sinners

You Better Get Ready and Hand in Hand with Jesus. The women in the band also take a verse each on Julie Miller’s modern gospel classic All My Tears. The album has had numerous tracks played on BBC2 and radio programs throughout the UK, and Europe. Here at home the album has received numerous accolades including making CKUA presenter Terry David Mulligan’s top five list of the best albums of 2013.

Ukraine, then and now Mark Crawford

Special to Tribune/Advisor When I worked as a university instructor in Kiev in the academic year of 1994-95, my students were mostly young adults in their late teens or early 20s, who were already bracing themselves for the second great public trauma of their young lives. The first had come suddenly in the spring of 1986 when, as young children, many of them had been rounded up with little or no warning and whisked away to the south, preferably to the countryside or to some city on the north coast of the Black Sea such as Sebastopol or Yalta. Many were fortunate enough to escape exposure to levels of radiation from the Chernobyl catastrophe that would cause cancer, limit their longevity, or stunt their growth. Others were not so lucky. The second crisis came not as a result of a sudden accidental explosion, but rather as a surfacing of tensions with deep historical roots—specifically, a structural conflict between the twin forces of Ukrainian and Rus-

sian nationalism, exacerbated by divergent economic prospects and regional power struggles. I recall visiting a student’s home in Lviv in western Ukraine during the Christmas holidays in 1994. She confided to me her family’s worry that her brother might have to be conscripted to fight the Russians in Crimea or in the East, where secessionist sentiments were brewing thanks to a lowerthan-Russian average wage in Ukraine and a raging inflation that was quickly making the Ukrainian currency next-to-worthless in world markets. Today’s crisis is a continuation of this ongoing conflict, but one sharpened by several changed conditions on the ground. One is the poisoning of relations between pro-Russian and proWestern factions in the country’s parliament. I am not just using the wording “poison” metaphorically—recall the attempted assassination of the increasingly popular Viktor Yuschenko by dioxin poisoning in 2004, which left him permanently disfigured, and which helped to precip-

itate the “Orange Revolution” later that year. Since then, the question of how best to balance the need for good relations with Ukraine’s major creditor and supplier of energy, Russia, with the growing desire for gaining membership in the European Union became increasingly difficult: events since the return of Tymoshenko and the flight of Yanukovich show that like other fledgling democracies, Ukraine has not yet learned how to share power. Meanwhile, another one of my students from 20 years ago reports that “the number of victims of police and snipers in Kyiv is growing every day (people are dying in the hospitals) and is already 100 … My family is OK. “I just need to explain to my nearly six year old girl why people are flying to the sky forever and what ‘war’ means.” Mark Crawford is a graduate of Columneetza Secondary School in Williams Lake, and was an instructor in the Civic Education Project in Ukraine in 1994-95. He is now a professor of political science at Athabasca University.

Happy Birthday Williams Lake

We’ve got snow, we can put on a show. We can snowmobile and ski. That makes us a healthy town Which is both good for you and me.

Now our town is using beet juice Just to try and thaw the ice. I think they should use moonshine. Now wouldn’t that be nice!

Yes, if they could pour on a little shine Well, it should be a breeze. It should just work like clockwork cause moonshine, it won’t freeze.

You could just melt down the snowbank And you wouldn’t have to buy. Just cut yourself a snow cone, And the whole town could be high.

So if the cop should pull you over And he says you’re on that brew, You know he won’t give you a ticket ‘Cause you know he drinks it too.

We’ve got loggers and house builders That can build most anything, Like Pioneer Homes of Williams Lake That’s called the Timber Kings.

Yes, they’re a local company And don’t make no mistake. The owners and their siblings, were all raised near Williams Lake.

So, if we should brag about our town To people far and near What a great town we have Cause we want everyone to hear

See, 85 years is a long, long time So let us all partake, Let everyone join in the fun. Happy birthday Williams Lake.

See we’re going to have a birthday, So that’s a special thing Yes, we’re 85 years old today. So let’s all dance and sing.

Now we’ve got this great Cariboo town That I like to talk about, It makes us all so doggone proud That we just want to shout.

We’ve got mines and mills, ranching land Where cattle graze and feed, And local merchants second to none. They have everything you need. Ladies of the Royal Purple purchased this baby bassinet for the Cariboo Memorial Hospital. The donation was made in memory of the late Mildred Brown, a dedicated former member of the Order of the Royal Purple in Williams Lake. Pictured are Trina Duquette (left), student nurse, Helen Lockhart, Gloria Limb, and Kay Mellish from the Royal Purple, and Brook Greig, RN representing hospital. The unit is made of warm wood, crafted with gentle curves and large wheels making it more comfortable and easy to move around. It has two big storage compartments and drawers in which to store baby needs and also a pull-out on which items can be placed when the baby is being changed. The bassinet can also be adjusted to different heights and tilted if needed. The cost is about $1,600.

LEONARD ROY ZIRNHELT 1945-2014 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our most beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Leonard passed peacefully, surrounded by his family at home. He is survived by his loving wife Judi, his three children Melanie (Ross), Lane (Lenka) and Russell (Kelly), his precious grandchildren Trinity, Noah, Grayson, Lilly, Eli and Leo as well as his brothers John (Yvonne), David (Susan), Norman (Candice) and his sister Margaret (Don). Leonard’s was a life well lived: he was a leader and excelled in everything he did. He left a huge void in all of our lives. A Celebration of Life for Leonard will be held at Sacred Heart Cathedral on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 11:00 am. If so desired, donations can be made in lieu of flowers to the BC Cancer Foundation at 1-888-906-2873 or visit www. . The citizen guestbook is available online and the family would appreciate any comments or stories you wish to share. Assman’s Funeral Chapel in care of arrangements.


Bruce Barton It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Bruce Barton Pollard on February 18, 2014 in the Williams Lake Hospital. After a brief hospital stay, he succumbed to medical complications. Bruce left this world peacefully surrounded by his beloved family. Bruce leaves behind his wife Verna, the love of his life. Also left to grieve are his 4 children; Bev ( and Les), Mike ( and Joyce), Gary, Bill ( and Jennifer). 9 grandchildren, 10 Grand grandchildren, 3 brothers; David (and Helen), Gerry ( and Margaret), Gordon ( and Sharron), and 1 sister Frances (and Brent). Numerous nieces, nephews and cousins and many, many friends. Bruce was predeceased by his parents, Thomas and Helen Pollard. Born into a ranching family, it was quite natural that he became a Clinton 4H Club member at an early age, learning what he could about cattle and ranching. Many years later, his 3 sons also joined the same 4H Club and Bruce helped behind the scenes. Not only did he help his own family, he often helped out other families by transporting steers to Kamloops for the Provincial Winter Fair which was in November at that time. Sports played a big part in Bruce’s life. He played basketball and baseball during his high school years. At an early age, Bruce began playing hockey at the outdoor rink in Clinton, often arriving early to clear the snow off the ice. He continued playing hockey all through his teens and into his adult years. Jersey #8 belonged to Bruce while playing forward for the Clinton Bluebirds, Williams Lake Stampeders (1955/56) and then for the Kamloops Chiefs (1959/60). However, the demands of playing for the Chiefs in addition to working the ranch and family life were too much so he returned to play with the Bluebirds for many more years. Bruce and Verna, along with their 4 children, ranched for many years in the Clinton area. After moving to Kamloops in 1980, Bruce earned his private pilot’s licence and enjoyed many hours flying his Cessna 172 and later his Piper Archer. Always up for adventure, Bruce and Verna moved to Fort Saint John, BC. At the age of 60, Bruce earned a certificate in Industrial FirstAid and worked for several years in the north. This is also where Bruce developed a love of woodworking. He made numerous projects for family and friends plus many custom orders which were sold at a specialty store. After a major surgery, Bruce and Verna moved back to the Cariboo settling in Williams Lake in 2009. There, they enjoyed numerous trips in their little motorhome pursuing Bruce’s passion for fishing at the many lakes in the area. Bruce was also an avid reader and kept up with current events. Using his self-taught computer skills, he kept in touch with his ever expanding family which were his pride and joy. He was genuinely interested in people and made everyone feel special. Bruce struggled to recover from several other major surgeries and he met each day with a positive attitude and great sense of humour, which was admired by all who knew him. Bruce will be greatly missed. He leaves behind countless memories and will be forever in the hearts of those he loved. A Celebration of Life was held in the Clinton Community Hall on February 22, 2014. Donations can be made to a charity of your choice in Bruce’s memory.

Artist donates carving to Nuxulk Nation

Photo submitted

Heavy lifters Roger Harris, Chris Nelson, Ernest Tallio, and Vance Snow lower a 400-pound stone carving into its temporary home at the Nuxalk administration building in Bella Coola.

Stone carver Ron Teska, a resident of the Appalachian Mounains of West Virginia, U.S., personally delivered the sculpture last summer from his home as a gift to the Nuxalk Nation after an earlier visit to the Valley. On a follow-up visit last month, he arranged for the carving to be displayed at the Nuxalk site. His gift is out of respect for both First Nations and endangered species.  Teska intends to relocate in Bella Coola because of the environmental destruction caused by fracking for gas in his beloved Appalachians. The limestone obtained for the eagle carving came from a salvaged monetary bank in Cameron, West Virginia. “The bald eagle, endangered in many places, is revered and protected in Bella Coo-

la. In this carving, I speak as the eagle giving thanks for being allowed to maintain its role in the web of life,” says Teska. “As the Nuxalk Nation reveres the eagle and other species thriving in their region, I offer the gift of this eagle as one small gesture of thanks for reinforcing my hope that other endangered species the world over will revive and flourish. This hand carving is in limestone salvaged from a bank in Cameron, West Virginia.” On another note, Chris Nelson, whose Nuxalk responsibilities include development of fledgling aboriginal tourism opportunities, was recently elected as a Director to the Board of Bella Coola Valley Tourism where he will provide a liaison to the Nuxalk Nation.

Ed Coleman new CEO for Barkerville Historic Town The Barkerville Heritage Trust has selected Ed Coleman as the new chief executive officer for Barkerville Historic Town. Coleman is filling the shoes of departing CEO Judy Campbell who, after devoting 40 years to Barkerville in a wide variety of capacities culminating in a productive seven-and-a-half years as CEO, is leaving to pursue other passions and opportunities. “We are absolutely thrilled to have Ed build on the work and initiatives undertaken at the site over the past several years,” said Campbell.  “His depth of experience in education, business and historic site management will be a considerable asset to Barkerville.” The appointment comes at the end of a lengthy selection and interview process. “Mr. Coleman brings a unique set of skills to the position,” said Barkerville Heritage Trust Chair John Massier. “We feel excited and confident that he will be an excellent steward of the site, moving forward.” Coleman brings a wealth and diversity of relevant experience to Barkerville.  He holds a Bachelor of Business Education from Okanagan University College in Penticton and the University of British Columbia, and has worked as a business teacher and consultant for School Districts 39 (Vancouver) and 43 (Coquitlam) while also working as the computer resources manager and assistant to the comptroller for the Rick Hansen Man in Motion World Tour from 1984 to 1990. Coleman moved to Quesnel in 1990, and has worked for School District 28 as a teacher and administrator. His duties included district co-ordinator of resources, district career programming, manager of Helen Dixon Centre Continuing Adult, and manager of Cottonwood House Historic Site by agreement through the school district and the heritage branch.   He also serves as cochair of the BC Heritage Properties Managers’

Group. Coleman was elected to Quesnel city council in 2011 and chairs the finance committee, au-

dit committee, sustainability task force and is the city’s representative of the Post-Secondary Education and Training

Council. “Barkerville is a major economic and tourism driver,” Coleman said in the recent an-

nouncement of his new position. “My goal is to continue strengthening the relationship between

Barkerville’s staff, merchants, contractors, and stakeholders locally, regionally, provincially and internationally by

encouraging a cooperative, team-based approach to securing the future of the site,” Coleman says.
