City celebrates 85-year milestone Despite an unseasonal snowfall, the city’s 85th birthday celebration last Saturday was filled with action-packed fun. People huddled under the picnic shelter to enjoy the Li-

ons Club breakfast or braved the elements for wagon rides. Due to the snow, however, family activities and entertainment were moved inside at the last minute, featuring local musicians and Banghra dancers from Quesnel. In the afternoon, Maranatha

Christian School hosted a carnival in the arena. Activities ran the gamut of face painting to a cake walk. The Rotary Club of Williams Lake served dinner. Afterwards, along with MLAs Coralee Oakes and Donna Barnett, Mayor Kerry Cook and

Williams Lake Indian Band Chief Ann Louie cut a birthday cake large enough for 500 people. A family dance featuring fiddlers of all ages and local duo Perfect Match closed off the celebration, with many people hitting the dance floor.

NEWS Child suffers temporary paralysis from tick bite Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer A two-year-old girl from Williams Lake is recovering at home after being paralyzed by a wood tick recently. Izzy’s mom and dad, Tera and Ryan Grady, are warning parents to check for ticks if a child starts to show weakness in the legs. By the time Tera found a Rocky Mountain Wood Tick embedded above Izzy’s ear, she couldn’t move her head, swallow or cough, and was about to be put on a respirator at the hospital. The Gradys were enjoying a family ski vacation in Whistler during the Easter weekend when on Monday morning Izzy suddenly couldn’t walk. Tera and Ryan

brought her into the emergency ward in Whistler and were referred to a pediatrician at Lion’s Gate Hospital in Vancouver. Izzy didn’t have a fever, a rash or any aches and pains, and the doctors did not know what to test for, Tera said. “I don’t think they see ticks there much so they didn’t think of that.” By the next morning, back in Whistler, Izzy had no fine motor skills in her hands. The Gradys returned to the emergency ward at the Whistler Hospital and were referred to a neurologist at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. “Four neurologists examined her,” Tera said. Because the doctors couldn’t find reflexes in

any of Izzy’s limbs they decided to test her for Guillaine-Barre Syndrome — a disorder in which your body’s immune system attacks your nerves. Izzy would need a spinal tap and an MRI the doctors said. While they were preparing for the MRI, Tera happened to put her hand on her daughter’s head. That’s  when she felt something crusty. She pulled back Izzy’s blonde hair and discovered the tick. It was in the third stage of feasting, and was also a blonde colour.  The ticks are first black, then red, then blonde and finally silver. They will then drop off to go looking for a mate. Immediately the tick was removed. During the first 24

than a week later Izzy was working with her dad in the backyard, feeling totally back to normal. Ryan said Izzy might have picked up the

tick while walking the power line above their home in Williams Lake a few days before they left for Whistler. Ticks use deer as a winter host, so when

the snow melts they drop off the deer. Ticks are rarely in their backyard, Ryan added. Human cases of tick paralysis are rare and only occur in children under 10. The Rocky Mountain wood tick saliva contains a neurotoxin that can occasionally cause tick paralysis in humans and pets; usually a bite from an adult female induces an ascending paralysis that dissipates within 24 to 72 hours after tick removal. Dr. Glen Fedor of Williams Lake said the Cariboo Memorial Hospital sees one case of tick paralysis every few years. “In tick season the nurses are very good at recognizing the signs of tick paralysis,” Fedor said.

National Chief Shawn Atleo resigns Recent incidents prompt Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer National Chief Shawn Atleo’s resignation Friday marked a sad day for First Nations politics, said Williams Lake Chief Ann Louie Monday. “It’s just another way for government to get what it wants,” Louie said as she suggested government doesn’t work properly in the consultation process. In a surprise move, Atleo announced Friday he is leaving his position as head of the Assembly of First Nations, stating he did not want to be an obstacle or lightning rod distracting kids and their potential from the current federal government proposal on education for First

Chief Shawn Atleo Nations reserves. “This work must be understood in that context — as a challenge, not for me, or any one individual — but a challenge and a call to action for the entire country,” Atleo stated Friday. The latest current proposal on education is the latest attempt and a sincere, constructive effort on the part of Prime Minister Stephen Harper to take a step forward,

Atleo said. Harper issued a statement Friday saying he was saddened to hear of the resignation. “Since 2009, when he was first elected as National Chief, our government worked closely with him to strengthen our historic relationship,” Harper said. “Together, we helped improve opportunities for greater participation by First Nations in the economy and standards of living and quality of life on reserve, including through the CrownFirst Nations Gathering in 2012. National Chief Atleo was a conciliator and strengthened the relationship between First Nations and the Crown.” Louie said she is

afraid Atleo’s replacement will receive the same treatment from government and from some First Nations leaders who feel Atleo didn’t do a good enough job. “I honestly can never see our First Nations supporting a National Chief 100 per cent, but I think it’s really critical they understand showing total disrespect to our elected officials is unjustified,” Louie said. Atleo has dedicated his life to improving the lives of First Nations people in B.C. and across the country, Premier Christy Clark said. The First Nations education act will be put on hold due to Atleo’s resignation, the government announced Tuesday.

ATV safety reminder Two recent ATV incidents in the Cariboo are a stark reminder of the importance of safety. Last week a woman was seriously injured in the Tyee Lake area. Two weeks ago another woman was injured in the Chimney/Felker Lake area. Central Cariboo Search and Rescue attended the Chimney Lake incident. “I would like to remind people to pay attention,” chief of operations Rick White said. “Use extreme caution and wear a helmet, which is mandatory.” The RCMP are also reminding the public of the laws and regulations governing ATVs and dirt bikes.

While many of the rules are not yet mandatory, the phasing in process has begun and some of the highlights include mandatory vehicle registration and identification, annual vehicle licensing for those who wish to cross public roads, insurance for those wishing to cross public roads and muffler standards and spark arrestors to avoid forest fires, Insp. Warren Brown said. “It is illegal to operate your ATV or dirt bike on any road or highway that is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, this includes crossing a highway. If you are caught driving on these roads you could

face a fine of $578 and have your ATV or dirt bikes towed, at your expense.” Owners can operate ATVs or dirt bikes on a BC Forest Service Road, but must carry a minimum of $200,000 third party liability insurance and must have a valid driver’s license. Drivers must also carry proof of this insurance and produce it upon demand of a peace officer. Non compliance could result in a $578 fine. In B.C. people are very lucky to be blessed with a beautiful back country, Brown said, adding Crown land offers millions of acres of fun and entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

Save-On-Foods gets a new manager Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Have no fear, the new Save-On-Foods manager said his cardboard cutout will be arriving soon. Manager Randall Bamford didn’t bring his from Salmon Arm. “They are popular for scavenger hunts and mine was a pretty beaten up,” he chuckled. Bamford replaced former manager Mark Law who retired at the end of January. He arrived on Feb. 17 and said he was excited to return to Williams Lake. Bamford lived here when he was a teenager, attending Anne Stevenson junior high and graduating from Columneetza Secondary in 1983. “So when the job came up I thought, Wil-

liams Lake’s a good town,” Bamford said. Having been with Save-On for 26 years, Bamford has worked for the company in Victoria, Chilliwack, Kelowna, Squamish and most recently, Salmon Arm. His wife Dawn is from Chilliwack. Their son Mitchell, 6, goes to Chilcotin Road elementary school. “I still know lots of people in town I knew when I lived here before so it’s been an easy transition for us,” he said. Two and half months into the job, Bamford has nothing but praise for his staff. “They are great people and they like doing what they do. A lot of them have been here for a while.” Because the store’s always been connected to the community, he’s

Government of British Columbia and Xplornet Partner to Bring Affordable High-Speed to Remote B.C. Residents.

The program will provide a subsidy of up to $250, or half of the cost of an installation of broadband equipment to new residential and business customers within Xplornet’s industry leading 4G rural broadband satellite footprint. This will significantly reduce the costs of installation, costs that may have been a barrier to the adoption of high-speed Internet. “The government of British Columbia deserves significant praise for a program that helps break down one of the last barriers to full connectivity in the province – namely the high cost of broadband installation in remote parts of BC. Now, even the most remote British Columbians can affordably benefit from the transformative power of high-speed Internet to connect them to the global economy,” said Xplornet President Allison Lenehan.

Input sought on elk plan The government is looking for input from local public stakeholders to help develop an Elk Management Plan for the Cariboo Region. Once the dominant large ungulate species in Cariboo-Chilcotin ecosystems, the elk population declined sharply about 125 years ago. However, a natural unassisted recovery is underway that could provide opportunities to rebuild economic and traditional uses of elk, according to Harry Jennings of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, Cariboo Region. Jennings said his ministry, along with the Ministry of Agriculture, is now gather-

Historically, elk ranged across much of the grasslands and forests of the Cariboo Region from the Fraser River west to Choelquiot Lake and Anahim Lake, south to the Chilcotin River and Meldrum Creek areas, and east to Canim Lake and Mahood Lake. Over the past 15 years, the local elk population has increased to more than 300, with the majority of these elk now located in the Quesnel area.

ays:  • To Chief Ann Louie for calling attention to the racism that is creeping around in the Cariboo Chilcotin.  • To city Coun. Danica Hughes and the organizers of the city’s 85th birthday party. It was great to see families involved, and that the nasty turn of Cariboo weather didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm.    • To the High School Rodeo participants who didn’t let the snowy Stampede grounds daunt them.    • To the   people — many of them young’uns French —    who brighten Connection the day of others Diana French with little acts of kindness — lending a helping hand (like holding a door open), giving up a spot in a line-up, or even just making eye contact and smiling. Boos: • To energy giant Kinder Morgan officials for suggesting oil spills could be a good thing economically because the clean-up would employ many workers. The company doesn’t say who would pay the workers.   • The provincial government’s plan to have trades training in the schools should deserve a great big yay, but not when it takes money away from other programs. We need some roses along with the bread. (Question: what is the difference between a trade and a profession? It takes years to train a dentist, it also take years to train a millwright. Both work with their hands. Why is one a trade and one a profession?) • To  Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the King of Ad Hominem (if you don’t like what someone says, smear them.) This may be okay when the target is a political foe but attacking academics, environmentalists, government-appointed watchdogs, and anyone else who dares to offer legitimate advice or challenges a government position is a bit much.

Contestants and volunteers at the Williams Lake High School Rodeo didn’t let weather get in the way of business Saturday, when as much as three inches of the wet stuff fell in the morning during the competition. The rodeo continued, however, the McDonald’s Bike Rodeo was cancelled, as was outdoor city birthday celebrations and soccer games.

Our Viewpoint

Foreign workers needed The temporary foreign worker program is unfair to Canadian and foreign workers. This controversy has been an ongoing issue for more than two years. It reared its head again two weeks ago when three Victoria McDonald’s Restaurant locations had hired foreign workers in place of Canadians. Last week, Employment Minister Jason Kenney suspended the food industry’s access to the program, pending a review, amid allegations of rule breaking. It’s easy to suggest the federal government should let free market forces of supply and demand address shortfalls in the labour market. The only problem is Canada doesn’t have enough workers and the situation is only going to get worse without opening the doors to more immigrants. At the moment, one in six Canadian employers is reporting “shortage of un/ semi-skilled labour” as a major business problem; nearly a third are reporting

“shortage of skilled labour.” Unemployment is near or below what is conventionally considered “zero” in every province west of Ontario (and that’s after the foreign workers have raised those unemployment rates a percentage point, as one recent study suggests). The simplistic solution to the problem is to raise the minimum wage to encourage Canadians to line up and take those jobs, but that won’t wash well with business owners, nor will it help in the long term. As Canadians age (watch out, the Baby Boomers are beginning to retire), workers and tax dollars will be needed more than ever to keep the country afloat. Those who say “Canadian jobs are for Canadians” are right, but what if there aren’t enough Canadians to fill those jobs — or want jobs? Immigration is the only answer.

he snow was falling and the wind was blustering, but that didn’t keep hundreds of proud Williams Lake residents from coming down to the Memorial Complex to celebrate our proud past, and the bright future that lies ahead for our wonderful city. I enjoyed cutting the delicious birthday cake and watched so many delightful performances by Williams Lake residents throughout the day. The family dance was also quite entertaining. But the highlight of the entire evening was the chance I MLA had to meet and talk with so many Musings inspiring people Coralee Oakes and community leaders who have shaped and built the city. Williams Lake has accomplished so much in 85 years. Beginning with the Pacific Great Eastern Railway roaring through the Cariboo, our city has had quite the exciting and eventful history. We are proud to keep our rural traditions alive such as the annual Williams Lake Stampede, being one of the largest outdoor events in the interior. Our city has produced so many talented and creative artists, musicians and poets who tell the stories, and paint the landscapes of our wonderful region. Famous Williams Lake residents have also put our city on the map, including the ever-inspiring Rick Hanson and Carey Price who made us so proud in the Olympics and currently one of the biggest stars for the Canadiens in this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs. I would like to say thank you to all of the volunteers and organizers who made the event so successful, bringing all of us together to celebrate Williams Lake. But the birthday party is not over yet, as celebrations will continue over the summer and fall at community events. Happy birthday, Williams Lake. I know the next 85 years will be just as great! Coralee Oakes is the MLA for Cariboo North and is the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Transport system can handle diluted bitumen Editor: Re: Columns by David Black, ‘The greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime’ (April 22) and ‘The Kitimat refinery proposal: safe pipelines, light fuels and B.C. jobs’ (April 28). Continued safe marine and pipeline transport of hydrocarbons is in everybody’s interest so Canadians can realize value for resources and oil producers can continue to deliver jobs and economic benefits. No one wants a spill of any product at any time. The performance track record over the past 50 years is good, but even still, work is ongoing to improve prevention and ensure producers, transportation companies and spill-responders have the best information available to manage products safely and make the best plans possible for response, containment and clean-up in the event of an incident. Black’s articles  incorrectly suggested the Canadian oil industry is not interested in the proposed refinery project and that transporting diluted bitumen is more risky than trans-

porting other types of oil because of its chemical properties. Fact is, oil producers are seeking increased access to existing and new markets — in Canada, the U.S. and internationally — to satisfy market demand for increasing Canadian oil production. All options to achieve that goal are worthy of study. And diluted bitumen — oil sands bitumen diluted with natural gas liquids that allow it to flow — is no more dangerous than other types of crude oil. Chemically, there’s nothing about diluted bitumen the transportation system cannot be prepared to manage. Whether it moves by pipelines or tankers, diluted bitumen meets all the same specifications and behaves the same as other crude oils. Oil floats on water if it has an API gravity above water’s 10 degree API gravity. Diluted bitumen has an API gravity of 20-22 degrees. Any type of oil spilled in water, eventually “weathers” and can be driven below the surface by waves or currents. Diluted bitumen behaves the same way. There have been several scientific studies completed on di-

luted bitumen. Earlier this year, the federal government released a research study that demonstrated diluted bitumen floats on salt water — even after evaporation and exposure to light. The study was commissioned by Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Natural Resources Canada as part of the government’s plan to implement a world-class prevention, preparedness and response regime for marine transportation. Results of the study will be used to inform spill responders and help guide more research. Our industry is focused on responsible development of Canada’s resources. We welcome transparency on our safety and environmental performance, based on sound science. As producers, we transport oil with care and attention at all times. We expect all transportation providers to deliver safe services in a responsible manner. Greg Stringham Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers Calgary, Alta.

The ice is slowly receding from Nimpo Lake, despite three inches of snow during the weekend. Fishing will be sluggish for a week or two but is expected to be great for the upcoming Dean River Canoe Race May 24 where prize money will be up for grabs as paddlers travel from Nimpo Lake down the Dean River to Anahim Lake. A pancake breakfast is scheduled at the Nimpo Lake public boat launch for 9 a.m. with bingo at the Anahim Hall to follow at 1 p.m. Ribs are on the menu for dinner, with a dance to follow. The event is sponsored by the Community Associations of Nimpo and Anahim Lake.

Chefs enjoying advancements in technology For those of you who missed me, my apologies. Lately, I feel like I am swimming against the tide and no matter how hard I paddle each day, shore still appears to be a mirage. Onward, and looking toward one of the positives in life. Right now we are fortunate enough to be enjoying a booming (cattle) market place, so the effort which we are putting

Cattle Fodder Liz Twan

into the hard work of branding, fertilizing, ploughing, seeding and irrigating should result in positive payback. The world around us is embracing technological advances and so too, is the beef industry. There are many advances that involve

just the push of a button (or two). For instance, most cattle producers now register each animal and with the aid of a radio-frequency ear tag, they can now track that animal from farm to packing plant. Innovative a few years ago, old hat now. One of the newest tracing-tools is for those who want to eat local. B.C beef (born/ raised, in province) is

now but a click away for B.C. chefs, thanks to a brand new website; a one-stop shop where you can select a beef from a farm of choice; arrange slaughter, issue individualized cutting instructions and co-ordinate pick-up to suit your schedule. Chefs can also select the abattoir of choice and the beef is guaranteed to be 100 percent B.C. beef. Twenty-five local ranches are registered

(listed) on the website, BCBeefNet and they sell only BC-certified beef — top quality beef products. The program`s flexibility allows the chef the choice of ordering a whole animal or a side (half) with future plans to allow for orders of smaller cuts/ portions. Check it out. It’s only a click away: www.bcbeefnet.ca/. Liz Twan is a rancher and freelance columnist for the Tribune.

NEWS Relay for Life extends invitation to cancer survivors and caregivers The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is a day of celebrating, remembering those we’ve lost and fighting back - it is a day of hope. Relay For Life begings at 1 p.m. May 31 and will wrap-up at 1 a.m. June 1 at Boitanio Park. The Relay will begin with local pipers leading the Celebrate Ceremony with the Survivors’ Victory Lap, as cancer survivors join together and walk the first lap around the track to show their strength in numbers. “Each survivor will receive a free yellow T-shirt and will be encouraged to walk one lap around the track. While they walk, a caring community of supporters will be cheering them on and showing their support,” says event organizer, Michelle McKinnon. Walking in the Survivors’ Victory Lap allows each survivor to celebrate what they have overcome while inspiring and motivat-

There will also be a special survivor reception and hand-printing activity on the large survivor banner for cancer survivors beginning at noon. For privacy reasons, interested survivor participants have to contact the Relay committee directly. “If you know someone who is a cancer survivor, please encourage them to participate in the Survivors’ Victory Lap.” Event organiz-

ers are also reaching out to caregivers to participate in the Remember Ceremony which is a chance for community members to honour friends and family members who are currently undergoing treatment and to remember those we have lost to the disease. Luminary bags containing tea lights are placed along the track, with the tea lights being lit once it gets dark. The mood becomes more sombre, peaceful and reflective as par-

ticipants think of their friends and relatives. “This year, we are asking caregivers to participate in the Luminary Ceremony, with caregivers lighting a candle and sharing the name of their family member or friend and a few words about them to everyone gathered around the track,” says McKinnon. Funds raised will be used by the Canadian Cancer Society to support life-saving research, policy changes, and support programs and services including

lodge accommodations, transportation to treatments, and the Cancer Connection program which matches patients or caregivers with a trained volunteer with a similar cancer experience.
 “We encourage all cancer survivors, caregivers, friends and family members to come and share this special event with us.” For information call Katie Hadden 778267-0035 or Sue Tippie 250-392-3688. Survivors may also register online at www. re l ay fo rl i f e. c a / w i l liamslake. To participate in the Remember Ceremony, contact Michelle McKinnon 250398-7887.

Fiddle History of Canada in concert The Fiddle History of Canada concert with noted Canadian fiddler Gordon Stobbe and the Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddle group is coming to the lakecity this weekend. The concert takes place in the Gibraltar Room, Saturday, May 10 starting at 7 p.m. Have you ever wondered how the fiddle has shaped Canada’s history? The fiddle tells a unique story of Canada—how fiddle music first came to our country in the late 1600s with immigrants, was adopted by First Nations people, and spread across the country, contributing to our present day cultural mosaic. This intriguing story told in the Fiddle History of Canada concert is arranged by Canadian master musician Gordon Stobbe who has been leading workshops with local fiddlers since 2012. “Be prepared for 40 amazing musicians aged seven to 17 telling the story of Canada through fiddles, guitars, pianos, drums, singing, costumes and dance,” says club spokesperson Angela Manning. Stobbe first developed the Fiddle History of Canada in 2010 in collaboration with Leslie Jean MacMillan, musical director of the Valley Youth Fiddlers, in Smithers. By 2012 the production was arranged by Stobbe and performed by the Valley Youth

Photo submitted The story of the Cassel-Lynn bridge across the Chilcotin River is another piece of recent history in this area told in Paul St. Pierre's 1984 book Chilcotin Holiday.

Another bridge story Barry Sale SMART 55

Almost everybody in the Williams Lake area knows the story about Rudy Johnson’s bridge. Rudy, a rancher, contractor, cat-skinner, developer, and jack of all trades, decided that a second bridge across the Fraser River in our area was necessary, and in 1968, he set about making it happen. He located a used bridge in Alaska, bought it, dismantled it bolt by bolt, shipped it here by truck, barge,

and rail, and rebuilt it, all without any government help or approval. Today, Rudy’s Bridge is a part of the B.C. highways system, and it still provides a vital link to the west side of the Fraser River between Williams Lake and Quesnel. But have you ever heard of the CasselLynn bridge across the Chilcotin River? It’s another piece of recent history which happened in our area. To tell this story, I have borrowed heavily from Paul St. Pierre’s 1984 book of short stories entitled “Chilcotin Holiday.” If you get a chance, give it a read. Out in the Chilcotin, between Lee’s Corner and Alexis Creek, the ranches are large, and several are located on the banks of the fast flowing Chilcotin River. For those on the opposite (south) side, there is a bridge crossing the river just below Hanceville, with its road leading up to the Chilco Ranch via several switchbacks. Another bridge, called the Duke Martin Bridge, crosses the

river at Alexis Creek, some 30 kilometres upstream to the west. During the 1960s and into the 1980s, Wayne and Trina Plummer operated the Deer Creek Ranch on the south side of the Chilcotin River, about halfway between these two bridges. Wayne and Trina had two children, and as the oldest boy neared school age, they began thinking about how they could get him out to the main Chilcotin highway on the other side of the river, where he could be picked up by the school bus. There was a road of sorts that they could use to drive out to the Hanceville bridge road, where they could meet the bus each morning and afternoon, but that would mean travelling a rough 60 km each day, and besides, several times a year that road was simply impassable. It just seemed to make sense to build a bridge over the 90 metre wide river, which was less than a kilometre from the door of the house. On the other side, it was just a little more than a km straight out to the Chilcotin highway, where the school bus would stop. So Wayne asked a couple of friends to help him, and they set out to build a bridge. One of the friends was Jack Casselman, a real

handyman rancher, who had some time on his hands and who was up for a challenge. The other friend was Wayne’s brotherin-law, Lynn Bonner, who also found the notion of building a bridge quite appealing. Together they discussed the technicalities of building a suspension bridge. Jack made some trips to Vancouver to check out the construction of some bridges down there, and then they designed one to suit the need. Construction began by bulldozing out giant holes on the north side of the river and the pouring of huge concrete anchor blocks measuring twelve-byeight-by-six feet. On the other side they erected a large 35-foot A frame, made out of peeled logs buried deep in the ground. Then they strung one-inch cables across the river and joined them together with pairs of drop cables placed every two feet or so. The bridge deck was built of Douglas fir three-by-fours covered with one-inch pine planking boards. They just started at one side and worked laying the deck until it was finished. In total, the cost of the bridge was about $8,000, which, Paul St. Pierre observes, “amounted to between

one-20th and one-30th of the cost if it had been a government project. To recognize the two friends who helped with the work, the bridge was named the Cassel-Lynn Bridge. They even christened it with a champagne bottle (after first removing the contents so that they were not wasted. This was, after all, the Chilcotin). For years, the Plummer children used this bridge to get to and from the school bus. The rest of the family and friends used it as well. It saved a lot of time and miles. For crossing the bridge, a motorbike worked well if you had one, but there were also plans to cut about three or four inches off the fenders and running boards of a Volkswagen beetle and to try that. I never did hear whether that plan worked or not. By the early 1990s the bridge was showing its age and had become quite decrepit. Some government agency or other decided that it was too unsafe and ordered it dismantled. By then, the roads and the vehicles were much better than when the bride was first built, and it was very seldom being used anyway. So it was that another unique piece of Chilcotin history disappeared with little protest or fanfare.

Gallery plans Chew the Fat Gaeil Farrar SMART 55

The Station House Gallery is gearing up to celebrate the city’s 85th birthday year with a special fundraising event called Chew the Fat. This event will be the opening event for the gallery’s summer theme show My Williams Lake that opens on Saturday, July 5. “We have big plans for this event,” says gallery manager Diane Toop. “A day outside the Station House with events, beer garden, food, music, children’s activities and talk, lots of talk about the old days.” She says they are inviting some longtime residents to share their stories with visitors during the event. “We are really hoping to encourage people to come down and spend some time with people they might not have seen for a while or people that they just like to ‘chew the fat’ with and to remind people how important the Station House was and is, to our community,” Toop says. The organizing committee is also looking for musicians who are willing to play for a small honorarium (Gallery Shop certificate) and more volunteers to help on the day of the event including two designated drivers for the beer-garden customers, food production and service, as well as set up of the outside activity areas. Walkers will also be needed to monitor the site for safety purposes.

During the Chew the Fat event tickets will be sold on arts and craft items that are donated for the gallery fundraiser. A photographic quilt created by youth entries selected for the summer show will also be auctioned at Chew the Fat. Funds are being raised to fix and repaint the outside of the gallery building, which is the original Pacific Great Eastern railway building. Toop says the gallery is accepting donations for the fundraiser right up until the day of the event. “We really want people to be aware that all the funds raised will be used to fix up the outside of the building,” Toop says. Anyone who would like to assist with the Chew the Fat event is asked to call Diane Toop at 250-392-6113 or email her at manager@stationhousegallery.com. The gallery society also needs volunteers to help with numerous other jobs throughout the year such as clean-up and painting work bees, organizing refreshments for opening nights, helping the exhibition co-ordinator with hanging shows, printing gallery items from newspapers and online sources and putting the information into binders for future reference, helping man the Christmas market, helping with inventory, and more. Becoming a Station House Gallery member also has advantages in that members are automatically invited to the monthly, invitation only, gallery openings.

The Long-billed Curlew is spotted in a rancher's field.

Gaeil Farrar photos The interpretive sign at Alkali Lake lists all of the birds who use this lake either for migration purposes, feeding, or as their summer home.

Bird watching is for all ages Gaeil Farrar Smart 55 Bird watching is something people of all ages and physical abilities can enjoy. Whether you just want to get to know the birds flying around in your back yard or take a trip further afield with people who know a lot about birds, joining the Williams Lake Field Naturalists club is a great place to start. These hard working volunteers offer many free workshops during the year at the Scout Island Nature Centre. And during the spring, summer and fall months they offer a variety of bird watching and nature adventure field trips. A couple of weekends ago, a group of seasoned naturalists led a morning birdwatching jaunt to Alkali Lake. I joined a friend in the club thinking the drive would end at Alkali Lake and we would be walking

a great distance to look for birds. On the contrary, most of the trip meant stopping here and there along the road to look at various birds spotted along the way by more experienced birders leading the way, having lunch at the Alkali Lake viewing station and heading back home again. The group met at the nature centre and carpooled to save on gas. The best spotters are put in the lead car, three cars in all for this trip. Being a novice I was spotting the bigger animals along the way — “lookout for those deer,” “watch those cows,” "watch that truck" etc. but didn’t see many birds until we stopped and they were pointed out to me. Some people in the group were specifically looking for their first sighting of the year of the Long-billed Curlew.

And we did see a couple, happily grazing in a rancher’s field. There were bluebirds, hawks, geese, ducks of various kinds, and a whole flock of pelicans huddled up against the cold on Alkali Lake. There is also a nice big information sign at Alkali Lake with information about what types of birds one might expect to see on the lake. One of the unexpected treats of the adventure was arriving at Esket just in time to park at the look-out and watch the cowboys moving their horses from the winter feeding grounds to the summer feeding grounds right up the main road. It was a short, easy morning trip which older people who are not up for big hikes would enjoy. The naturalists also lead various hiking adventures into beautiful areas

of the Cariboo Chilcotin to view birds and just enjoy nature in its finest forms. The Scout Island Nature Centre Centre is a great place to get started on this rapidly growing hobby of bird watching. There are all kinds of natural exhibits to study and information provided on birds and other wildlife that call the Cariboo home. You will be in good company joining this group as they have put the Scout Island Nature Centre on the world map of nature reserves that are well respected. A total of 3,016 people visited the nature house from around the world and many more used the trails from dawn to dusk, during 2013. Many visitors were from close to home and British Columbia as usual, but some came from Scotland, Kuwait, and even Nunavut, says the naturalist’s annual report.

ON THE COVER With the cold temperatures and abrupt snowfall Saturday, the Lions Club breakfast provided a chilly but fun atmosphere. Darline Pauselius's hands were so cold, she asked her friend, Lions Club member Lionel Burnier to slice her ham for her. Once he'd finished, he asked if she needed to be fed as well. Chuckling Pauselius agreed and everyone enjoyed a good chuckle.

Seniors Centre to host pancake breakfast Win Gooding Special to the Tribune

It is so nice to finally see green grass appearing and Williams Lake clear of the winter ice.

Hopefully the weather will be much warmer in May so we can do some gardening. The used clothing sale on April 26 and 27 was very well attended.

Many thanks for all the donations of clothing and to Marlene and all the hard-working helpers who sorted clothing for the sale and later came to pack

up the clothing that was not sold. Your help was greatly appreciated by the OAPO. The fundraising dinner held for the Seniors’ Summer Games was also well attended. Ellen Weige and her team of helpers did an

excellent job of hosting the roast pork dinner which was so delicious. Good luck at the games to all the seniors who take part in the games to be held in Langley, from Sept 9 to 13. The OAPO regional meeting on April 24

had Carrie Sundahl from Better at Home, as the guest speaker. This is a new program to help seniors remain independent at home. They provide help both inside the home and also do some yard work. RECIPE

Health fact High in vitamin C, vitamin K and fiber, strawberries are a good source of folic acid, manganese, vitamins B5, B1, and B6. Strawberries protect the brain from oxidative stress and help you age gracefully while improving brain function, motor skills and learning. Strawberries, like blueberries, contain powerful antioxidants that protect us from free radicals. Strawberries help protect our heart, are an anti-inflammatory, and protect us against cancer. Like spinach, strawberries also contain oxalic acid and therefore can minimize calcium absorption. Strawberries are commonly allergen and it is advised that we don't offer them to children less than one year of age.

COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK Wednesday, May 7 Sense and Sensibility

The Studio Theatre’s production of Sense and Sensibility has had a great first week run and is heading into the second week of a threeweek run today. The period play is based on Jane Austen’s popular book Sense and Sensibility which has been adapted for the stage by Jon Jory and is being directed for the Studio Theatre production by Becky Strickland. This classic story of the Daswood sisters and their struggles to find love is on stage May 7 to 10 and May 14 to 17. Gaeil Farrar photo

The Cariboo Men’s Choir performs during the choir concert held in conjunction with the Cariboo Festival last month. The choir will host a Mother’s Day Concert this Sunday at 2 p.m. in St. Andrew’s United Church to celebrate their 10th anniversary and as fundraiser to help the church buy an elevator.

Cariboo Men’s Choir celebrates 10th year with Mother’s Day concert The Cariboo Men’s Choir will celebrate its 10th anniversary this Sunday with a special Mother’s Day concert. The idea of a men’s choir got its start in the fall of 2004, when the Vancouver Mens’ Welsh Choir performed in Williams Lake. That performance was well attended, received great reviews, and set in motion the creation of our own local mens’ choir. After that concert, retired administrator Bill McDonald, local teacher Carl Johnson, and a few others began wondering why Williams Lake could not form its own men’s singing group. Carl volunteered to be the musical director. Bill agreed to manage the group, and they found an accomplished pianist in retired teacher Jerry Tickner. The word went out through newspaper

advertisements and by word of mouth. At the first meeting, 17 interested men showed up, and the idea became a reality. In those early days, their first set of songs came from an elementary school songbook, and all the singing was done in unison. Now, 10 years later, the choir maintains a healthy average membership of 25. It routinely performs pieces involving four and even five part harmony. Its selection includes songs which are often difficult and complex, and it has become well known for the quality of its performances throughout the Cariboo. Every year, this choir competes in the Cariboo Music Festival placing with consistently good results. This year the choir performed The Rose and Homeward Bound, and received very high praise.

The Williams Lake Library is currently holding its annual book sale. The sale continues today, Wednesday, May 7 through Saturday, May 10 in the library ac-

tivity room. There is a huge selection of books this year with thousands of items to choose from at clearance prices. The books include adult fiction, paperbacks, chil-

Barry Sale Special to Tribune/Advisor

Other noteworthy performances have included the annual Tuba John’s Christmas Concert, The Williams Lake Pipe Band’s Ceilidh, annual Remembrance Day services, the Olympic Torch Relay Celebration, and several more. The public is invited to celebrate with the Cariboo Men’s Choir at their 10th anniversary concert to be held on Mothers’ Day, May 11 at St. Andrew’s United Church starting at 2 p.m. Admission will be by donation and all proceeds will go toward the St. Andrew’s elevator fund. Come out and enjoy a great selection of songs, some in unison and some in multi-part harmony. Selections will range from old favourites such as Away from the Roll of the Sea; Song for Mira, and Amazing Grace, to Canadian Classics such as This Land is Your Land and Hallelujah, to hit songs from Broadway musicals such as My Fair Lady, On

the Street Where You Live, Ol’ Man River, Bring Him Home and more. Special guest artist at this concert will be Kiera Johnson. Kiera has been studying at the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Oak Bay near Victoria. She was featured in the choir’s fifth anniversary concert and returns this year to add to this Mothers’ Day musical treat. The Cariboo Men’s Choir meets and practices at the Williams Lake campus of Lake City Secondary School on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Auditions are not required and all men are welcome to join the choir. New members do not need anything more than a willingness to sing. Men of all ages are invited to come out, learn to sing in harmony, and earn to read music. It’s a great way to keep your brain active, live longer and enjoy life.

Library’s annual book sale offers many choices dren’s books, audiovisual, and magazines. There is a large number of nonfiction titles, on a variety of subjects: travel, biography, history, science and math, just to name a

few. Wednesday through Friday the doors are open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday the doors are open from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Saturday, May 10

Nature Centre yard and garden sale The Scout Island Nature Centre will hold its Spring Yard and Garden Sale on Saturday, May 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the nature centre. There will be something to interest everyone – household treasures, sports, outdoor, and garden items, interesting house and garden plants, and bird houses. The event is a fundraiser for a student bursaries provided by the Williams Lake Field Naturalists.

Sunday, May 11

Mother’s Day Market The Williams Lake Lions and Lioness clubs are now taking registration from vendors wishing to participate in their annual Mother’s Day Market. The market takes place in the Save-On-Foods parking lot on Sunday, May 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The rental fee for a one car parking space is $10, a two car parking space is $15, and tables are $5 each.

Art of Reconciliation, the workshop The deadline for participation in the Art of Reconciliation workshops is coming up this Friday at noon. The two workshops will be co-facilitated by Sheila Dick and Anne Burrill and are open to equal numbers of First Nations and non-First Nations artists. “Reconciliation is both a personal journey and a public process,” says Burrill, the city’s manager of social development, who is co-ordinating the workshops. The first interactive

workshop takes place May 12 at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre next to city hall. During this workshop the artists will explore the topic of reconciliation and then after the workshop create a piece of art work that is reflective of their experience, thoughts and ideas. A second workshop will be held in late June for the artists to share their work and talk about how they created each piece. So far Burrill says there are nine regis-

tered participants for the workshops and about eight to 10 spaces still available for artists wishing to participate. After the second workshop, Burrill says the artists will be invited to contribute their work to a show at the Station House Gallery during the month of September. Advance registration is required in order to plan for the event. Lunch will be provided and health supports will be available on site. Registration is re-

Seedy Saturday a time to share Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Since its inception the Williams Lake Food Policy Council (WLFPC) has continued to grow. Today the council oversees a local-food store and co-ordinates two community gardens. It also hosts an annual seed sharing event, which this year takes place on Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Memory Garden on Carson Drive. At Seedy Saturday there will be a seed exchange, seedlings and seeds for sale, gardening demonstrations, kid’s activities, live music and food vendors, organizers said. “People will also be able to sign up for a community garden bed,” said WLFPC director Tatjana Lauzon. Looking back Lauzon said the local food scene in Williams Lake has come a long way. After a community food forum in 2006 it became apparent many people didn’t know how to access local food, she recalled. “The community was worried about the disconnect to health and food, especially among our youth.” Immediately the council was formed and began developing a Food Action Plan committed to increas-

Through an Interior Health community food action initiative, and financial support from the Westin Foundation, Thompson-Nicola United Way, the City of Williams Lake, Cariboo Regional District and Community Futures, the council established Cariboo Growers, a retail outlet located at the corner of Oliver Street and Third Avenue, a former Petro Canada station site,

Action-packed weekend at high school rodeo Greg Sabatino Staff Writer Snow, mud, rain, and almost everything else in between wreaked havoc at the Williams Lake High School Rodeo Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds. Cowboys and cowgirls, competing in both the junior and senior rodeos held during the weekend, struggled to post top-10 times and scores. From Williams Lake Kate Barnett rode to a 61-point girls cutting score to finish third place on Sunday. Kaylee Billyboy, meanwhile, was eighth in pole bending, recording a 25.253-second time. In the junior rodeo Friday and Saturday Brianna Billy placed second in pole bending, seventh in barrel racing, seventh in girls breakaway roping and fifth in girls goat tying. Wyatt Armes placed second in boys goat tying and sixth in breakaway roping and Nic Flinton finished fourth in chute dogging Friday, third in chute dogging Saturday, sixth in goat tying and fourth in boys breakaway roping. Other lakecity competitors were Lyssa Murray and Melanie Wintjes. Greg Sabatino photo

Left: As Garth Brooks sang in his famous song, “it’s dust and mud, it’s the ropes and the reins and the joy and pain, and the thing they call Rodeo.” There was all of that (with the exception of dust) on display at the Williams Lake High School rodeo on the weekend where the inclement weather created less than ideal conditions for competitive achievement. Kaylee Billyboy, seen here competing in the breakaway roping event, has an added piece to her usual rodeo wardrobe, having added a woollen winter ear-band under her cowboy hat in the effort to retain some warmth.

Fuller selected by Tri-City Americans in WHL draft Williams Lake’s Landon Fuller was the 90th overall selection May 1 in the Western Hockey League 2014 Bantam Draft. Fuller, who played last season for the tier two bantam Williams Lake Timberwolves, was the fifth-round pick of the Tri-City Americans. The six-foot, 190-pound 14-year-old blueliner is the younger brother of Evan Fuller, who played in more than 250 WHL games between Chilliwack, Moose Jaw and Prince George. Landon recorded seven goals and 24 assists for 31 points and 138 penalty minutes last season with the Timberwolves.

Nemiah Valley Rodeo cancelled What would have been the 37th Annual Nemiah Valley Rodeo has been cancelled. “We’re going to keep

ing and cost factors. The contestants are getting less and it costs us more money so we wanted to venture out and do

something a little different to see what people want to do. We haven’t made a decision to stop the rodeo from coming

back [in the future].” William added shifting to a gymkhana format will allow more local members of his

community to participate in the event. The Nemiah Valley Rodeo was scheduled to be held Aug. 2-3.

A deal worth changing for.

Picking the right ride for you By Alexandra Straub

Life of two wheels is incredible. Just ask anyone who rides. But part of that appeal is finding a riding style that fits your personal preference. There are many different ways to get you on the open (or dirt) road to enjoy the best of the great outdoors. I’ll suggest some new makes and models to consider in each category, but by no means are these the be-all-end-all of choices. Cruisers

Cruisers have mass appeal because of their low seat heights, generally comfortable ergonomics and ability to get you from point A to B in style. Some models have the foot pegs stretched forward, some don’t. They might not be the most nimble bikes around but they certainly do have mass appeal. Better yet, they come in all different sizes, shapes and displacements making it even more accessible to riders. Bikes: Honda CTX700, Yamaha Bolt, Harley-Davidson Superlow 1200T, Suzuki Boulevard C50 Sport Tourer

a sport touring motorcycle. They’re generally not as heavy or as elaborate as a full on touring bike, so you get the best of both worlds. Bikes: BMW K1300S, BMW K1600GT, Yamaha FJR1300, Honda VFR1200 Touring

When asked how I’d describe a Touring bike I say: not small! These machines are typically heavy, but come equipped with the technology and luxuries that can take you across the country and further. Their fuel tanks are generally much bigger so you can keep going for longer. Furthermore, storage compartments, relatively speaking, are quite generous. Bikes: Harley-Davidson Electra Glide/Ultra Limited, Honda Goldwing, Suzuki Boulevard C90T B.O.S.S. Trials

Those looking into trying

riding without the high speeds might fall in love with trials riding. But get ready for a workout. If you look, there’s no seat. That’s because you’re meant to stand. Trials is a slow speed type of thrill where you manage obstacles and find ways to do things that even you didn’t think was possible. Think: riding up huge logs, up steep hills and over some interesting terrain. Either way, it’s a lot of fun and both physically and mentally challenging. Bikes: Montesa Cota 4RT, Beta 200, Gas Gas TXT Pro Dirt

Playing in the dirt has never been so much fun! No, really. It’s true. Whether you’re young or young at heart, dirt bikes are a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Dirt bikes are restricted to the dirt, meaning, unless you have a dual sport bike that has a license plate, you can’t ride them in the road. That said, they’re generally quite affordable and are extremely durable. Since there are so many different kinds to choose from, I’ll list the manufacturers that make them Bikes: Honda, KTM, Yamaha, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Aprilia Adventure

Take the road less traveled, but take the road when you want!

Dirt Bikes: Honda. Adventure bikes have an uncanny ability to get you through some incredible terrain. Bikes: BMW F700GS/ F800GS/R1200GS, Suzuki V-Strom, KTM 1190 Adventure Sport

If you’re looking for the ultimate performance machine, a sport bike is the way to go. These are the bikes that are generally designed with the racetrack in mind but are street legal. They have more horsepower than you’ll ever need and harness the engineering prowess of the best of the best. That said, they have an aggressive seating position and aren’t always suited for taller riders. Then again, if we really want something to work, we make it work!

No, I’m not suggesting riding in your birthday suit! Naked bikes tend to have a more upright seating and handlebar position and are devoid of fancy bodywork covering the

“They’re not safe. But it would only be a problem in an accident.”

Confessions of a Curber I was getting good at this, so I purchased a used vehicle in the U.S. and imported it. It didn’t have any airbags, so the warning lights were on. But I wasn’t picky. I knew, based on my other tricks, I could solve that before I had it inspected and registered. You just couldn’t be too worried about the truth. I Googled airbags. I saw I had three options. Get certified replacements installed at a repair shop. Buy some and install them myself. Or, override the warning light. I called and found that the first option was out of the question. Way too expensive. But, option two had some promise. There were cheap ones online. Of course, there were some warnings about dangerous fake airbags. Option three, overriding the warning lights, went too far – even for me. You can find how-to videos about anything on the web. So, I ordered cheap ones and had them sent to my U.S. mailbox. I used a buddy’s garage and put them in. Bingo! The warning lights went off and I was on my way. Soon, I had an ad up on several classified websites: Great car for sale. Moving out of the country and need to sell fast! Good condition. Recently inspected. Call cell. I’m flexible on price!! I couldn’t believe how many calls I had. I found my buyer not long after. A nice man about my age; divorced with three kids. That’s all I know about him – I don’t like getting too personal. I was actually honest about the vehicle this time. I told him that the car had been in an

accident and was from the U.S. I asked if he wanted a vehicle history report*, but he declined. He appreciated my honesty, as he’d gone through a few bad deals. With the transaction done, we parted ways. Then I got a call from my buddy. Being a curious person, he’d read the boxes the airbags came in that I’d left at his shop. “You installed counterfeit airbags,” he said. “So? They look identical to the original airbags,” I said. “I’ve seen videos of bogus airbags catching fire and with metal bits exploding when they deploy. They’re not safe,” he scolded. I’ll take my chances, I thought. It would only be a problem in an accident. The next day, my buddy left a message. He ended our friendship. Whoa, chill out. A guy’s got a right to make a few bucks.

A real stretch for BMW lovers do get spoiled with a rear wiper on an SUV). The hatch is electronically operated and provides a long and wide cargo area, plus the rear seats fold in a snap. The rear windows and cargo do not have darkened, privacy class like an SUV, which is something I would prefer.

There are settings for vehicle dynamics and suspension from “Eco” to “Sport Plus” that can take this car from relaxed to athletic at the push of a button. I really enjoyed driving in sport mode and getting the full effect of the 335GT, as the in-line turbo 6-cylinder is still one of the best power plants on the road. For buyers looking to save on fuel and when purchasing, the 328GT is still a potent machine.

The all-new BMW 335GT. By Zack Spencer

A recent jaunt to Beijing was a major revelation, from the sheer size of the population to the massive car market and the types of cars people there like to buy. In the luxury segment, elongated versions of existing sedan are very popular. There “long” wheelbase cars instantly show that the owner has attained a certain level of status and a big part of that is being chauffer driven. In Canada, we have long wheelbase sedans but typically, they are top models like a BMW 7 Series or S-Class Mercedes. In China, even base models like the BMW 3 Series or Audi A4 have stretched versions. I raise this because the all-new BMW 335GT is the long wheel-

base 3 Series, developed for China, modified for a niche market here. Looks

Adding 10 cms of additional legroom to the back seat of the 335GT opens up a different experience for rear passengers. The GT offers slightly higher seating position and roofline with a hatchback design

that makes for a dramatic and functional car. BMW does have a 3 Series station wagon but it looks like a wagon, this design mimics a sedan silhouette with only a slight hint of the cars true practicality. There is a wing that emerges out of the hatch at highway speeds to produce more down force, similar to the one found in Porsche’s Panamera. The GT is sold as a 328GT, with a $48,990 starting price. It has a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and 18inch wheels. The $56,990 335GT has a larger turbocharged 6-cylinder engine and 19-inch wheels. (The wheels seen here are

winter wheels and tires) Inside

The 3 Series sedan is already fitted with topnotch materials and a functional dash. This is carried over to the GT model, so the front seats remain unaltered. It is the back of the car that is dramatically different. With added legroom and a higher roofline the GT feels open, especially when fitted with the panoramic roof. My kids loved the extra space but noticed the doors sit a bit higher compared to a regular mid-size SUV. The hatch has no rear wiper so expect rear visibility to be blurry on rainy or snowy days. (You

The 3 Series sedan has been considered the benchmark in the compact luxury market for decades and a lot of the same goodness is here in the GT. With a longer wheelbase and a slightly higher centre of gravity it doesn’t handle as nimbly as the sedan but it is much better than the taller X3 SUV. The power from either 241 hp turbocharged 4-cylinder or the 300 hp turbocharged 6-cylinder engines goes to all four wheels and is shifted through a very slick 8-speed auto box.

price is more expensive than the X3 so this is a premium offering in the BMW family. If I were in the market for a BMW the 335GT or less expensive 328GT would be in the running. With kids I lake having and SUV but still want the fun and stability that a sedan offers. This GT might just be the right balance for some. So thank you China for helping to bring a unique new class of car to our market.

Verdict

The GT falls into a very nice spot in the 3 Series family, and I include the X3 in that group. The sedan is a great car but not as practical as the X3. Yes the X3 has traditional SUV appeal but looses some of the sedans nimbleness. This is where the GT plays. It has a bigger cargo area than the X3, more rear legroom but it also has more a sedan stance on the road. The

Luxury sport ute with an emphasis on safety By Ian Harwood

The 2014 Infiniti QX60 is a luxurious sport utility vehicle that puts safety above everything else. Looks:

The QX60 is a very attractive vehicle to these eyes; it has distinctive Infiniti looks. The projector style headlights flow with the body lines and the fog lights look like they belong instead of an afterthought. The side body lines almost give the appearance of waves moving up the vehicle. LED rear brake lights and center high mounted stoplight sit atop the rear power lift-gate. Chrome accents around the windows give it a sense of elegance. In The Cab:

The cabin seemed large to me at first, but after climbing in and getting comfortable it is really not that big. If you are a . . . now how can I put this delicately? – If you are an amply proportioned person really spend some time trying out all of the seat positions. Once in the driver’s seat I found the controls well positioned and easy to operate. I liked the navigation screen with 3D mapping, the monitor offers a bird’s eye view of the vehicle and detects moving objects thus providing more help in backing up in a tight parking lot. It features an 8-way power driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support, 6 way power front passenger’s seat, 60/40 split folding and sliding second row bench seat that allows easy entry/exit even with a child seat installed, 50/50 split folding third row seat that reclines. The audio system is a 6 speaker, AM/ FM/CD with MP3 playback capability and has a speed sensitive volume control. The AWD model receives a Bose 13 speaker premium system. Safety first:

The QX60 includes dual stage front airbags with seatbelt and occupant sensors, driver and front passenger side impact supplement airbags, roof mounted curtain side impact airbags with rollover sensor for all row outboard occupant head

protection. Infiniti recognizes how important it is to have children secure in their vehicles. They have developed a latch system that securely anchors a compatible child seat. Intelligent brake assist system is a safety feature that continuously monitors and analyzes closing speeds to a vehicle ahead and provides warnings. If a collision is immanent, it will also apply the brakes. There is also a lane departure warning and prevention system. Power:

A 3.5 litre, 24 valve V6 engine with 265 horsepower and 248 foot pounds of torque power this vehicle. The transmission is an electronically continuously variable (CVT) with manual shift capabilities.

Excellent handling to this vehicle, steering was quick and responsive, and body roll was at a minimum. Even though the engine

was more than adequate providing plenty of power, the CVT transmission was continuing to make adjustments and I found at times sudden bursts of power followed by a hard up shift. Defiantly not something I expected with this type of luxury.

There is little more annoying than the power trips exhibited in parking lots. You are in a busy shopping mall lot and after minutes of cruising you see a driver return to his car and load up. As he climbs in he notices you waiting patiently and that’s when the mind

Doug is lovingly remembered by his wife Carolyn, children Chenoalyn (Matthew) LeGresley, Keenan , Kyla (Matthew) Andrieux and his six precious grandchildren who were his pride and joy. His siblings Ron (Polly), Joy (Phil) Redo and nephews will remember him fondly. Doug was predeceased by his parents John (Jack) and Mary (Mamie) Hosking, infant brother Howard and nephew Daryl. A celebration of life was held on Sept 28, 2013, at which Doug preached, sang and expressed the good things God had been doing to help him and his family through his diagnosis and treatment for brain cancer. Doug will be laid to rest in the Williams Lake Cemetery on May 9, 2014 at 12:00. Alternate service location at SDA Church on Ninth and Huston, if raining. Messages and condolences have been very appreciated and can be sent to Carolyn and family at hosking7@gmail.com or Carolyn or Doug’s face book page.
