School District 27 Superintendent Mark Thiessen is warning parents of a potential student walkout being organized for Wednesday, June 4. In an information bulletin sent to parents Tuesday, Thiessen said any walkout activities are not sanctioned by the district or by individual schools, and added the proposed walkout raises a number of concerns particularly with regard to student safety.

“(We) strongly encourage students not to participate in the walkout,” Thiessen said. “Both to ensure their own safety and to avoid adding further unnecessary and unproductive disruptions to their learning during this already difficult dispute.” At the Tribune’s press time the proposed student walkout was gaining attention and momentum across the province in both mainstream and social media. Thiessen said student safety cannot be guaranteed for students participating in walkout

activities and should there be student protests here, parents need to expect that those activities will not be supervised by teachers. The possible disruption comes on the heels of two all-day strikes conducted by SD 27 teachers in the last two weeks. Top that off with a partial lockout instituted by the government which prevents teachers from talking with students at recess and lunch hour and curtails their work hours. The impacts on students have been noticeable. Just this week it was announced

the 2014 Elementary District Track and Field meet will not go ahead as planned this year due to the labour unrest. However, late yesterday concerned parents sent a letter to the school district appealing for some way to continue with the track meet, even offering to volunteer their time in the teachers’ absence. Cancellation of the popular event will directly impact between 300 to 400 student athletes, as well as prevent any times from being recorded in the record books.

Williams Lake City Page Sam Ketcham Pool Referendum Question of the Week


Q: What are the timelines for construction of the recommended concept? A: Should the referendum be successful then work on the new pool would begin immediately. The first step in this process would be to undertake a detailed design of the facility. This phase usually takes approximately 9-12 months. Once the detailed planning was completed, then construction of the facility could be tendered, awarded, and construction could begin shortly after the award (seasonal dependent). Given the phased approach of the facility (where the Leisure water side will be constructed first while keeping the main tank open, and then fixing the main tank once the leisure water opens) it is estimated that the full project would not be fully complete for approximately 28-36 months from the referendum date, however, one of the key advantages to the recommended concept plan, and it’s phased construction approach, is that there would be water open to the public for the large majority of this time. If the referendum is unsuccessful then work would also begin immediately to repair the tank. Detailed planning (roughly 9-12 months) would be first followed by tendering of the project. It is estimated that repair of the tank would take an additional 12 months. During this time the pool area would be completely closed and unavailable to the public.

Campground operator saves tiny owlet Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer A tiny but mighty owlet named Dale is recuperating after an exciting rescue Saturday night near Williams Lake. Steve Simms who runs the Chief WillYum Campground at Sugar Cane Reserve came to Dale’s aid. Simms said he was four-wheeling behind the campground on a trail when he startled two ravens who were in the air fighting over the owlet about 35 feet away. “Suddenly I saw this owl drop 30 to 35 feet from their clutches and land on the side of the road,” Simms said. Simms grabbed a towel, gently picked up the owl, brought it home and put it in a box. The owlet, which biologists believe is a Northern Saw-whet, couldn’t fly likely due to its young age, but seemed to be able to

move its wings. Simms said that’s the first time he has ever seen that type of owl in the region. He suspects the ravens took the owl from a nest.

When he contacted the BCSPCA Williams Lake Branch, staff referred him to 2nd Chance Wildlife Rescue in Quesnel and on Sunday Sue Burton, a volunteer from Wil-

liams Lake, came and picked up the owl and arranged to take it to the shelter. By Tuesday morning Burton said Dale had eaten four frozen mice from the pet store and

was looking good. “Dale’s not injured so he’ll just need to go to the wildlife shelter in Quesnel,” Burton said. Dale’s the first baby owl the shelter has re-

ceived this year, shelter manager Tammy Zacharias said. “We’ll feed him and raise him and he’ll be good to go. Thank goodness we’ve been stockpiling mice.” Simms said the name Dale came from his 21-year-old daughter Rachel who thought the owl looked like a Dale. While he has seen owls in the Cariboo, this was his first rescue operation, he chuckled. Zacharias said all of the animals brought to the shelter last year have been released and the shelter is ready to start over with new arrivals. “The kids have their own brains right now and don’t want to listen to their parents anymore,” she chuckled. Five baby Canada geese flew out on Central Mountain Air Wednesday and a bald eagle went out on Tuesday, she added.

received $101,859 plus a $12,977-executive salary for a total of $114,836. Cariboo North MLA Minister Coralee Oakes received $89,859 plus a $32,930-executive salary. Under expenses, Barnett was reimbursed $47,785. The breakdown of her expenses included $12,000 for ac-

commodation, $2,665 per diem, in-constituency travel expenses of $10,689, general travel totalling $19,007, per diem for general travel $1,006 and $2,348 for accompanying travel of two persons. Oakes was reimbursed $60,536 for expenses. Her expenses included accommodation at $5,847, per diem

$3,835, in-constituency travel $6,264, general travel $41,657, per diem $176 and accompanying person travel of $1,244 for three persons. “This new public disclosure fulfils a decision to expand members’ disclosure reports made in 2013 by the all-party Legislative Assembly Management Commit-

tee,” the government said in a press release. “Each MLA is provided with an annual budget to operate and staff a constituency office, in order to provide information and services to constituents.” Information on constituency office expenses will be posted quarterly, including the cost of office admin-

five calls in the past two days involving cougar sightings. Butler said they seem to be following

deer, which is normal at this time of year, and have been mostly seen around the edges of town at Esler and

above Signal Point. A resident in the Esler/Hodgson Road area told the Tribune last Friday a cougar

was spotted at around 7 p.m. in the area. The cougars identified have been mostly younger, Butler add-

ed. People are encouraged to contact the COS at 1-877952-7277 if they have any concerns.

Info sought on attack of hitchhiker The RCMP are looking for information after a hitchhiker was attacked near Williams Lake Thursday. Between 4 and 5 p.m. a male was hitchhiking on Highway 97, 20 kilometres south of the city, when a vehicle described as a late 1980s, two tone green and blue Ford pickup stopped, said Cpl. Brian Lamb of the 100 Mile House RCMP. When the male, in his late 50s, approached the vehicle to get inside, a suspect male, described as Caucasian, 22 to 35 years old, with blonde hair, exited the passenger side. He approached the victim, punched him in the face causing dental damage, and knocked him to the pavement, which caused further injury. Police said the suspect then returned to the vehicle and the vehicle fled the scene. The next day while travelling through 100 Mile House, the victim reported the incident to the RCMP. He was taken to the hospital by BC Ambulance and later released. Police said the victim had placed a large duffle bag in the back of the truck before the attack. The victim was travelling with a small brown lap dog who was, fortunately, unharmed. Anyone with information about the incident, or who owns the vehicle, is asked to call the 100 Mile House RCMP at 250-395-2456. Kamloops and District Crimestoppers offers a cash reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and charges being laid against any unsolved crimes.

Resident wants action taken on speeders Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Eleventh Avenue North resident Jim McIntyre wants drivers to slow down and be more attentive. “My 11-year-old son walks to Cataline School and I’m really

worried about his and other students’ safety,” he said. Every time McIntyre stops to observe the traffic he sees driving habits that make him cringe. Recently a silver Camaro sped down the street in excess of 100

Legion Branch 139 honours D-Day Ken Wilson Special to Tribune/Advisor D-Day, the Battle of Normandy, is being commemorated throughout Canada, including right here in Williams Lake, to remember those brave Canadians who served our Country and helped break the back of Hitler who then held control of France. On June 6, 1944 Canada, along with British, American and Allied forces, stormed onto French soil with a massive invasion — one that had been in the planning stages since early in the

Second World War. For Canada, 14,000 soldiers were to land on the beaches; another 450 were to drop behind enemy lines by parachute or glider. The Royal Canadian Navy supplied ships and about 10,000 sailors. Lancaster bombers and Spitfire fighters from the Royal Canadian Air Force supported the invasion. Almost seven months before D-Day, Hitler issued a directive that said the Germans would counterattack any landing on French shores, and we will throw the enemy back into the sea.

Thank goodness, Hitler was not right and that good was on the right side. Today, 70 years later, we can celebrate our part in this incredible battle, one that cost many young Canadians young lives. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139, Williams Lake is holding a veterans D-Day celebration June 6. There will be a turkey dinner with all the trimmings and the evening gets underway right after the meat draw. There is no charge for veterans; guests will pay $5. There will also be live entertainment.

Relay for Life raises $21,500 Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer Under sunny skies and into the night, people participated in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life in Williams Lake last Saturday. A Survivors’ Victory Lap opened the relay portion as survivors clad in yellow T-shirts carrying banners from past years walked the first lap led by local pipers. One of those survivors is Carol Grosso. Before the first lap, Grosso spoke to the crowd about her experiences battling multiple myeloma. “Needless to say my world was turned upside down,” Grosso said. When she was diagnosed Grosso and her husband Garry’s twin girls were in Grade 7 and their son was in Grade 8. The hardest thing was telling her children she had cancer, she recalled, adding she was optimistic and promised to fight. For 11 months she stayed in Vancouver for treatment, but was never alone, she said. “I don’t want to talk about the drugs, the tests, and the procedures, but the tremendous outpouring that

Free press can, of course, be good or bad, but, most certainly without freedom, the press will never be anything but bad. - Albert Camus

Is anyone Strike a pose listening on climate change?

Remembering D-Day



y two youngest granddaughters live on acreage “out-of -town” with an assortment of four-legged friends. Long time readers of this column might remember that the older sister, GD#6, once bonded with a turkey. It was a mutual admiration affair, I never did figure out what the attraction was, but who can explain love? The girls enjoy close relationships with all their animals (except maybe the goats) and both are in 4H. GD#6’s projects French involve her horse Connection and a pig. GD#7 Diana French is too young for an animal project but other activities keep her busy.   4H  is more than 100 years old and it’s easy to see why it has lasted, the values the young’uns learn will last through their lifetimes. On a different, but somewhat related subject, does anyone remember the cartoons showing an old man with a long gray beard holding a sign saying,  “The end is nigh?” Well, more and more scientists (97.1per cent) are saying that given the way the global climate is changing, the end really is getting nigher. Even the mainstream media are reporting on melting glaciers, arctic ice and raising ocean levels. Lawsuits against governments and corporations on environmental issues are growing (a Texas family recently won $2.9 million from a gas company for damage done to them from fracking). Religious leaders have gotten into it, with Pope Francis saying we are “Custodians of Creation” and Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu lashing out against the Alberta tar sands. U.S. President Obama has joined the climate change activists, announcing his government’s plans to reduce carbon emissions and to lead international efforts to address the issue. He says “we will have the satisfaction of knowing that the world we leave to our children will be better off for what we did.” Better for my grandchildren too. And for another century of 4H’ers. Are our politicians listening? Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune. She is a former Tribune editor, retired teacher, historian, and book author.

Leave it to 150 Mile House to bring the country into the teacher’s strike. Teachers at the school hit the picket line Monday, one on top of a horse, as part of rotating job action.

Our Viewpoint

Time travellers The two vice principals of Columneetza, our local grade 7 to 9 campus, gave nervous parents a tour and a talk last week about what to expect when their children make the scary transition from elementary school to middle school in September. Though school teachers were absent due to job action, resident vice principals/comedians Grant Gustafson and Mike Grace were on hand for the meeting. The two worked to quell some of the worries of parents on hand for the meeting, but were also candid about some of the challenges ahead. Apparently, lockers and the cafeteria are a big draw for first-time middle school students. Let’s face it, to those freedom-seeking 12-year-olds, a locker is the first step toward getting their own apartment. Unfortunately for current Grade 7 students, they had to share old lockers but there is hope those will be replaced over the summer months. Another draw is the cafeteria, where students and staff can get a good deal on lunch. We suggest students should look at getting a summer job next month to pay for all those lunches, so cash-strapped parents don’t have to. The school is also floating the idea of an Outdoor Education Academy which would see interested students have class based out of the Scout Island Nature Centre once a week for more interactive, environmentallyfocused learning. The program is a fascinating idea and cer-

tainly would be considered a move towards the 21st Century Learning model endorsed by education leaders in recent years. That the district is even looking at programs like this tells us they aren’t afraid to try thinking out-of-the-box, which is exactly what our students and our world needs. As well as the learning, perhaps one of the biggest bonuses of the academy would be physically removing the students one day a week from the Columneetza basement where all 230-some grade 7 students are housed. All we can say is there must be some very dedicated teachers who volunteer to work in that setting. A real challenge facing students in middle school continues to be bullying; in particular children who are left to freely participate in social sites like Facebook without tight parental controls. The Fox Mountain bus route also continues to be a problem facing students, who arrive almost an hour before class and leave for home late too. But perhaps the biggest challenge facing 12 year olds entering middle school is their hormone-fuelled selves. Grace and Gustafson said the middle school years are a major transition time for students, and that in just six years time they will be like our current Grade 12s –– graduating high school and moving into adulthood. Now if the school district could just figure out a way to slow down time. - Williams Lake Tribune

I had the privilege of attending the Commemoration Dinner in Vancouver and meeting with many of our veterans.   Mr. Jean-Christophe Fleury, the Consulate General of France spoke about how important and respected our Canadian veterans are in France.  On a personal note, over the years I have had many conversations with my grandparents and have wrote down their stories about their experiences in the navy during the Second World War. My grandfather still remembers clearly specific dates and where he was at during the war and it is critically important that we remember their tremendous sacrifice. I asked the veterans at the event to ensure that their stories were wrote down and one dear sailor sent me the book he wrote about his experiences. I have been so fortunate to attend many events this past year in my role and this was a significant one that I will remember and hold close to my heart. On this 70th anniversary of D-Day let’s remember the courage and sacrifice our veterans made to Canada. We owe a great deal of gratitude to them, and we shall never forget that.

More Viewpoints

Comments from leadership shocking Editor: It was astonishing to hear Joe Alphonse in the media threatening to interrupt work at the Gibraltar Mine and interfere in the lives of its 700 workers in order to extract money from Taseko. The truth is important and here are the facts: Mr. Alphonse was instrumental in stopping the $1.5 billion New Prosperity gold-copper project and thus denying the people of the Cariboo and B.C. a future that would have included thousands of new jobs and billions in new revenues for taxpayers. Not satisfied, he now wants money from Taseko and is telling untrue stories and using threats to force an agreement between Gibraltar and the Esdilagh First Nation so he can get what he wants. There is no obligation, legal or otherwise, for our company to pay Mr. Alphonse any money for anything. An agreement is not required to create value for people.

Over the past five years we have worked with the Esdilagh First Nation, a small band with an on-reserve population of about 50 people, to create personal and community benefits. We have hired their members, contracted with the band for services, provided education and training opportunities and, in doing so, helped create individual success stories. All of this has been done without any formal agreement. When there is a desire to work together for mutual gain, there is no limit to what can be accomplished between two parties. We see that in our relationship with the Williams Lake Indian Band. The relationship is based on the concept of mutual benefit, on the genuine desire to help each other and that is exactly what is happening. It works. There is no reason why this same two-way spirit of co-operation cannot be duplicated with others. Through our work and invest-

ment, Taseko creates employment and business opportunities in the Cariboo. What Mr. Alphonse is trying to do, with some success, is stop those positive things from happening. What kind of leadership is that? The future rewards those who step towards it. New Prosperity represents a chance for everyone to share fully in the mineral wealth of the region and in the prospect of a brighter future. Gibraltar is already providing this for the Cariboo Region. Now is the time for local First Nation people and their leaders to step forward, take hold of the future and to make sure this opportunity of New Prosperity becomes a reality for themselves, their communities and for others.

or not, simply give and take. I am in no way suggesting that First Nations should approach negotiations like a whimpering dog crawling on its knees. First Nations have the right to receive the greatest respect, as well they should be prepared to give equal respect in any undertaken negotiations. Whenever negotiations are approached with one side taking firmly entrenched positions, there simply can be no negotiations. Simply speaking both sides will just simply dig in their heels and absolutely nothing can be resolved. Diplomatically speaking making advance absurd statements only serves to cloud issues, my argument has always been, if you want to solve issues, both sides need to carefully weigh and fairly consider the platform and issues of the opposing side. If respect for the opposing sides issues is not given, there

Question of the week


can never a resolution be found. Speaking in a generalized way; one thing that will always destroy negotiations is where goal posts are simply not firmly entrenched. Possibly Joe Alphonse needs to take a lesson or two from the Williams Lake Indian Band. The Williams Lake Indian Band seems to have been quite successful in their negotiations with local mining companies. As much as Joe may be a real fine and upstanding representative of the greater Native Population for him to be in any way involved with negotiations of any kind with Taseko following his dearth of inflammatory comments about Taseko and Prosperity, it hardly seems like constructive grounds for any negotiations. I suggest the Esdilagh People seek someone to negotiate for them without Joe’s hard headed negative baggage.    Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Respect has to work both ways Editor:   Regarding Monica LambYorski’s recent article entitled Band Seeks Mine Agreement. It is not my interest to criticize or find fault, I am, however, saddened as I read this article. I am reminded of comic funnyman Rodney Dangerfield, his argument through his career on stage was always: “I get no respect.” The question that comes to mind as I read Monica’s article is: Joe Alphonse demands respect but offers little in return, if Monica’s article is correctly interpreted. I am particularly referring to his comment, “If we have to, we are going to push to get Taseko out and another company in that will work with First Nations People.” Confrontational negotiations will win nothing for anybody, as we can see with any negotiations. Negotiations are, like it A7

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO RESOURCE ROAD USERS A provincewide, safety-oriented project is underway to standardize two-way radio communications on forest service roads and some resource roads. This project includes standardized signage, new dedicated resource road radio channels and standardized call procedures. • The 100 Mile House Natural Resource District will begin implementing new resource road radio channels on May 31, 2014. • The Cariboo-Chilcotin Natural Resource District will begin implementing new resource road radio channels on June 16, 2014. Forest industry workers and other road users using mobile radios must reprogram their radios to incorporate the new resource road channels. Since the transition will be gradual, it’s recommended that road users retain current radio frequencies until they are no longer required. New signs posted on local resource roads indicate which radio channel to use and the calling interval, with drivers required to indicate their direction of travel and their vehicle type. All road users are reminded that forest service roads are not radio-controlled, but radio-assisted. All users should drive safely and according to road and weather conditions. It is strongly recommended that all resource road users exercise additional caution during this transition period. Local resource road safety committees have worked together to implement these changes. More information (including radio communications protocols, radio channels, maps and signs) is available online at: If you have questions about this project, please contact a Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations office (100 Mile House Natural Resource District at 250 395-7800 or Cariboo-Chilcotin Natural Resource District at 250 398-4345), or Industry Canada at 1 800 667-3780.

Expert discusses rollover safety with truckers Monica Lamb-Yorski Staff Writer A trucker can haul logs for 40 years, but will never haul the same load twice, said Grant Aune, CEO of Advantage Fleet Services Ltd. Aune was in Williams Lake May 23 to present “The Anatomy of a Rollover” during a trucker appreciation day at the Gibraltar Room. He told the crowd of around 75 people he first designed his program after McMillan Blodel had 27 rollovers in a time period of 18 months on Vancouver Island. “We put together a program and delivered it to all drivers, supervisors and mentors within that group and trained over a three month period.” Incidents were monitored for 18 months following and there was only one. The driver involved hadn’t taken the training, Aune said. Drivers were encouraged to think about their loads and how easy it is to prevent a rollover and how important it is to look at each load from a stability perspective. “It’s important to keep the rubber part down and the metal part up,” Aune said. “The last thing you want is to be on your side in your tin can because you are packing in the excess of 2 million joules of kinetic energy.” There’s a fallacy that a nice big truck high off the ground will win, except there’s a good chance if the truck ends up on its side and is sliding down the road, it’s carrying a ton of energy. Rolling a truck over is high profile and often leads to serious

injury or even fatality. Showing a photograph of a rollover, Aune said he did some testing and deliberately rolled two trucks over. While the truck and load were easy to find, getting drivers to participate was more difficult. They ended up pulling the vehicles to speed with a tow truck, releasing and steering the truck. In 2013, 42 per cent of incidents in B.C. were rollovers and another 24 per cent were collisions. When there’s an incident in this province involving a rollover, such as the latest fatality with the motor cycle driver near Squamish, and the media grabs ahold of that, everybody who hauls logs gets painted with the same brush, Aune said. “Statistically when professional drivers, like yourself, are involved in an incident with a third party, 85 per cent of the time it’s the third party who is at fault who has done something incorrect that caused the crash.” However, most of the crashes involving commercial vehicles are single vehicle and don’t involve a third party. Most of the incidents are off road, where there’s nobody else to blame, Aune said. Aune was the media liaison for the RCMP out of Kamloops between 1989 to 2000, and spent 24 years with the RCMP. The bulk of his work was doing collision reconstruction as a technical investigator, primarily in the Fraser Canyon and the Coquihalla. He worked for ICBC for a short time and then began work-

Council supported three parts of the design which include the removal of the northwest quadrant island on Carson to tighten the turning radius and slow down traffic as it exits the highway, to lengthen the remaining island on Carson Drive for better “channelization,” and to develop at-grade crossing at Carson Drive.

Western Avenue will need to be closed at Highway 97 if proposed intersection changes go ahead at Carson Drive and Toop Road, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said Thursday. “The suggestion to eliminate vehicle movements at the Highway 97 and Western Drive intersection was an outcome of a road safety audit,” a ministry spokesperson said, explaining the design is still in the engineering phase. Currently the Western Avenue and Highway 97 intersection allows no access for northbound traffic. Southbound traffic can exit the highway at Western and traffic entering the highway there can only turn southbound. Western Avenue is less than 150 metres south of Carson Drive and traffic movements there causes some mobility and safety concerns because vehicles leave and enter the

highway close to the larger Carson intersection, the ministry said. The ministry is also proposing the existing access to Jubilee Place be closed and a six-metre access be provided around the back. “It’s problematic right now because it comes out right on Carson, almost onto the highway, so it does interfere with the movement of traffic,” the city’s general manager of operations Geoff Goodall said. “We see the closure of Western at the highway as more than a tweak and are requesting the ministry do con-

When you drive south through 150 Mile House have a look at the 150 Mile Hotel. You can clearly see that it is made up of two separate buildings which have been joined together. The front section, which housed the beer parlour and café on the bottom, and 16 rooms on the top, was constructed between 1952 and 1954. But the rear section — now that is a real piece of Cariboo history! Originally, it began its life as a family home, built in 1880 by Gavin Hamilton Sr. Hamilton was a retired Hudson’s Bay Company factor from Fort St. James, who purchased the 150 Mile Ranch and store. He, his wife, and their 13 children took up residence in the big 150 Mile Roadhouse, but the atmosphere there was not too conducive to the raising of children, and the rooms the children used meant a loss of income in terms of room rentals, so he decided to build a

new family home a little further south. At that time 150 Mile House was still a bustling settlement on the Cariboo Wagon Road. Passengers, freight, and mail made connections there for all points north, east, south and west. The Roadhouse did a booming business with gambling, liquor and prostitution providing a lucrative income. Gavin Hamilton, however, suffered a series of financial and personal losses, so much so that he sold the ranch, store, roadhouse and family home to Robert Borland and George Veith in 1883 at a rock bottom price and then moved with his family further south to the Lac La Hache area. In those days, even though the town was thriving, there was virtually no medical help in 150 Mile House. If you got sick, you were either nursed by your friends or family, or you made a long, difficult and usually painful stagecoach trip to the doctors clinic in Ashcroft or in Barkerville. So it was that the first physician to set up practice in 150 Mile House was welcomed to the community with open arms in 1884. He was Dr. Hugh Watt, and he had

There's rich history surrounding the 150 Mile Hotel. been a well-respected and successful medical practitioner in Barkerville. He established a very prosperous practice and continued as the community’s only doctor until 1895, when he moved to Fort Steele. In the late 1800s doctors were fully qualified and registered in B.C. Some had advanced degrees in surgery and medicine from highlyrespected universities in the British Isles. These men commanded respect and affection for their willingness to make house calls to the most isolated ranches, often two days or more travelling time from their home community. It was to 150 Mile House that Dr. R.T. Wilson Herald (he used the surname Wilson) arrived in 1896. He was a handsome, 35-yearold graduate of Queens University in Kingston, Ont. His Victorian style full mustache and his trim athletic features soon made him one of the most eligible bachelors in the Cariboo. It did not take him long to set up his prac-

tice and his home in the former Hamilton house, which he purchased with the aid of a grant incentive from the provincial government. The bottom floor of the place was Dr. Wilson’s private residence, with a large parlour, kitchen, sitting room and bedroom (people who remember going to the 150 Pub in the 1970s and 1980s will recall the old stone fireplace in the back room. That was the doctor’s parlour.) Upstairs were five small treatment rooms and a larger clinic area — in effect a small hospital. Local people were seen here, or at home if the condition was serious enough, and often people were driven to the clinic where they could remain in care until they were better. It wasn’t long until the Hamilton house became known locally as the Doctor’s house. The small lake behind the 150 Mile Hotel is still known today as “Doctor’s Lake.” I read an amusing story about Dr. Wilson. It seems one of the maids working for the Murphy family at 141 Mile House was grossly overweight. Finally, after diets and exercise programs had failed, Dr. Wilson confined her to a treatment room on the second floor of the Doctor’s house and locked her in, providing her with only a

small portion of food to last each day. Weeks went by without a single pound of weight loss. Dr. Wilson became very suspicious that his treatment program was being thwarted. One evening, he walked quietly around the building. He found his patient greedily hauling a pail of food up to her second storey window with a rope tied to the bucket by her husband, who admitted freely that he enjoyed larger, more buxom women. The treatment ended forthwith, and Dr. Wilson’s weightloss program did not become the success it might have. Dr. Wilson left in 1901 and he was followed by Dr. Mostyn Hoops and Dr. Cecil Boyd. In 1915 the Doctor’s house became the home of pioneer trucker Tommy Hodgson and his new bride but, in 1920, they moved into the new Williams Lake village, and the house was converted into a hotel. Over the years since the place has been owned or managed by several well-known Cariboo pioneers — the Cornwalls, the Cowans, the Zirnhelts, the McKenzies and the Hodgsons again. It’s an old piece of history with a fascinating story. Barry Sale is a freelance writer with the Tribune/Weekend Advisor.

Seniors Advocate hosts open forum in Williams Lake Monica Lamb-Yorski Smart 55

Lack of affordable housing, the cost of accommodation for medical travel and the need for a senior's dental health program. Those are some of the themes Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie heard during a town hall at the Seniors' Activity Centre Thursday. “I sold my home because I couldn’t afford to repair it and have put my name in for social housing,” retiree Jane Carter told Mackenzie, adding cuts to the federal residential repair program has hurt people living on limited pensions like hers. She needed help with her electrical, roof and deck to the tune of $7,000. Another person told Mackenzie because there is no dental health coverage for many seniors, she had all of her teeth removed before she retired. As she travels through the province many seniors are telling Mackenzie the cost of travelling for medical appointments and procedures can be prohibitive. “It’s a big issue when you have to stay somewhere in the

added. “Twenty years ago people moved to the Lower Mainland, but now that’s not necessarily an option.” George Atamanenko pointed to the future and predictions that within 30 years, people who are 65 years of age will make up 25 per cent of Canada’s population. “Income security in retirement is the foundation for wellness and quality of life for seniors, especially for the less fortunate,” he said. “It is difficult to retire on the present pension plan. B.C. should expand on the supplemental plan as Ontario has.” He urged Mackenzie to encourage government to stop and reverse the privatization of health care, do away with MSP premiums and reinstate PharmaCare benefits. There also needs to be better food at hospitals he said. “Seniors still have taste buds and deserve the best in-season, locally produced food.” Mackenzie was appointed in March. She also met with seniors at Glen Arbor

and Seniors Village while she was in Williams Lake.

Adele Hamilton (left), family friend of Rudy Johnson (right) were at the Laughing Loon Restaurant Saturday for a branding party held to celebrate Highlands Irrigation Ltd.’s 40th year in business anniversary. Clients and guests of Dick and Donna Ford were invited to bring their brands and “brand” them on old rails from the Rudy Johnson Bridge. Johnson and his wife Helen purchased the “Buckskin Ranch” (18 km from Williams Lake) from Jim and Peggy Keefe in 1960. Tradition dictates that the “brand” stays with the ranch, so the Johnsons inherited the brand which had been brought all the way from Colorado with the Keefes in the early 1900s. The iron brand is more than 100 years old and consists of a lazy “T” laying down and “I.”  The “Buckskin” brand was one of many included in the Branding Party.

Edith and Charlie Fawcett celebrate 60th wedding anniversary LeRae Haynes photo

LeRae Haynes Smart 55

Congratulations were on the menu recently at a Seniors' Activity Centre luncheon, when local residents Edith and Charlie Fawcett celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with family and friends. L o n g - t i m e Williams Lake residents, the Fawcetts have lived in Williams Lake since their marriage. Their four children were all born at Cariboo Memorial Hospital. The couple's youngest daughter, Anita Fawcett and oldest son Bill Fawcett attended the celebration while their two middle children arrived for an additional party on the weekend. Anita Fawcett said her parents are longtime church members, and that she was raised with small town values like being a champion of the underdog and doing what you can to help people. Her dad worked for the railroad, and when an accident resulted in the need for retraining, he became a stationary engineer hired by Cariboo Memorial Hospital where he worked on boiler systems and elevators. She said that her mom was a consummate homemaker, sewing her daughters’ figure skating costumes, and volunteering in the community. “She was once honoured as volunteer of the year in Williams Lake,” Anita said. “Dad has always been a strong supporter of education for his own kids – we all graduated from the University of British Columbia — as well as for his grandchildren and other local young people.” When asked why

education for young people is so important, Charlie answered simply, “It’s probably the most important thing in the world.” “My dad was always a wealth of good, simple advice to me, including financial advice,” Anita continued. “One of my friends in Vancouver said, ‘I felt like he’s raised me, too; almost like, ‘what would Charlie Fawcett do.’” She said that her dad has always been known for his great sense of humour. “When I was about 12 years old, I was driving with him to Williams Lake and wanted him to stop for a snack or something. He resisted, and I said, ‘You can’t be my real dad, ‘cause if you were my real

OAPO celebrates 50th anniversary Win Gooding Smart 55

It’s so nice to have the longer days to enjoy once more. However, warmer

weather would make them even better. The sun did co-operate for a very happy Mother’s Day so we have that to be thankful for.

The OAPO Branch 93 pancake breakfast on Saturday, May 24 had a good turnout. Many thanks to Marlene and her helpers for serving up a very


enjoyable breakfast. The OAPO Branch 93 is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Williams Lake on June 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre.

Please come and enjoy having cake, tea or coffee for this special event. The June OAPO monthly meeting will be held one week ear-

lier on Thursday, June 5 from 1 to 3 p.m. The change is because several delegates from the branch will be away to attend the B.C. OAPO con-

vention in Agassis, on June 10-12. There will be a report on the convention later. Until next time enjoy each day to the fullest.

Sense and Sensibility goes on to Mainstage Gaeil Farrar Staff Writer Every one of the four productions in the Central Interior Zone Drama Festival taking place in Williams Lake last week went home with awards and praises from festival adjudicator Joan MacLean. But in the end the lakecity’s Studio Theatre production of Sense and Sensibility excelled in numerous categories and was chosen to compete at the provincial Mainstage Festival in Kamloops, July 4 to 12. The zone festival included four plays, two from Williams Lake, one from Kersley and one from Prince George. The awards were presented during the barbecue gala Saturday evening at the Studio Theatre in the former Glendale Elementary School building. Sunday morning the Sense and Sensibility cast and crew participated in an in-depth workshop with the adjudicator. The adjudicator presented numerous outstanding performance awards. Sense and Sensibility won the outstanding production award and Becky Strickland won the director award; Sense and Sensibility’s Jennifer McPhee, as Marianne Dashwood, and Kathy MacDonald, as Elinor Dashwood, tied for the outstanding actress award. Sense and Sensibility’s Curt Sprickerhoff won for outstanding set design; Shane Tollefson won novice director; Christa Obergfell won for costume design; and Stacey Poirier won the festival spirit award. Sense and Sensibility’s Stacey Poirier, Debra Sprague, Mackenzie Moore, Rowena Berezan, and Becky Strickland won for hair and makeup. The Hurricane Award and Running Crew award went to Sense and Sensibility’s Stacey Poirier, Haley Tazelaar, Brian Durrell, and Mark Berezan. The Studio Theatre’s Lee Moffat won for Outstanding Positive Driving Support and Sheryl-Lynn Lewis won the Person Who Campaigned the Hardest to Get a Special Award. The supporting actor award came to a tie between the two Williams Lake productions: Dennis Hawkins-Bogle who played Richard Roma in Glengarry Glen Ross and Scott Smithson who played Willoughby in Sense and Sensibility. The cast of Glengarry Glen Ross won the outstanding ensemble award. Colin Sandford, who played Baylen, in Glengarry Glen Ross

It was “anchors away” at square dancers jamboree Mary Anne Turner Special to Tribune/Advisor It was anchors away as about 70 square and round dancers gathered at Mountview Elementary School May 23-25 for a spring weekend jamboree. Let’s Get Nautical was the theme for this weekend of nonstop dancing fun with dancers attending from Williams Lake and as far away as the South Cariboo, Okanagan, Lower Mainland, Vanderhoof and Prince George. The gym was transformed with seagulls, lighthouses, rocks, a pelican, pilings, a large ocean mural and a stage decorated to look like a ship at anchor. Many dancers joined in the fun with red, white and blue outfits as well as sailor suits and hats. Dustin McGifford, the featured guest

Square dancing to a nautical theme at spring jamboree. square dance caller from Kelowna, was resplendent in his captain’s outfit, complete with gold braid. McGifford, along with local callers, Nick and Mary Anne Turner, kept the dancers hopping for eightand-a-half hours throughout the weekend. A variety of nautical tunes such as Wave

on Wave, Rockin’ in Rosalies’s Boat and Baby Beluga added to the fun. During the Saturday night intermission, the Williams Lake dancers put on an evening show for their guest ‘passengers.’ There was much laughter as a brave troupe of men, calling themselves the Barish-

na-Flops, performed a ballet of sorts clad in tutus and feathered head bands. Following that, the local club played ugly sticks to the tune Barney’s Reel. The ugly stick is a traditional Newfoundland musical instrument made out of a mop handle with bottle caps, tin cans, small bells and other

noise makers fastened to it. A large tin head tops it off and the instrument is played with a smaller stick. The Williams Lake dancers had displayed great creativity in making these funny looking instruments. The guests enjoyed the parade of ugly sticks that preceded the performance. It was a weekend of great fun with a lot of healthy exercise. “We had a great time at the square dance,” reported Kevin and Pearl Blood of Prince George. “We enjoyed all the dancing, entertainment, friendships and food. Your club did an exceptional job. We look forward to more dances in Williams Lake.” It was such a social weekend and it was nice to dance again with old friends from around the province. It was the club’s 56th jamboree and we are looking forward to the 57th. Now, the Williams Lake club is taking a well earned rest for the summer but will

resume in the fall. For information in how to join in on their square dance fun, check out their website at http://www. wmslk.squaredance.

community Bella Coola Music Festival announces new artists The Bella Coola Music Festival is pleased to present award-winning aboriginal artists Don Amero and Wesley Hardisty July 19-20. Amero’s musical style has been likened to John Mayer meets Keith Urban. Shaped and moulded by his own experiences, his music carries the depth of hardship and luminosity of hope. His message is one of encouragement, positivity and beauty, despite the harshness of the world. From the notoriously tough north end of Winnipeg, Amero faced poverty, gangs, drugs and violence but fortunately, his life was tempered by love, support, and faith in a greater power. This singer/songwriter’s four albums Heart On My Sleeve, The Long Way Home, Deepening, and Change Your Life, have generated nine national and international awards, and more than two dozen nominations. Among them are Aboriginal Songwriter and Male Artist of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Best Country Single at the 2012 and 2013 Indian Summer Music Awards, Male Entertainer of the Year at the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards, and most recently, a 2013 Juno nomination for Aboriginal Recording of the Year. A highlight for Amero happened in January 2013, when he was

selected to showcase at the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City. The engagement was part of the APAP World Music Conference, and Don was pleased to be one of only three Canadian Aboriginal musicians chosen to perform for a full‐house of New York music lovers and conference delegates. Just 20 years old, Wesley Hardisty has an impressive resume, with hundreds of gigs, including Vancouver’s Talking Stick Festival, the Northern Scene National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and the Kamloops’ Cowboy Festival. From the Dene First Nation in the North West Territories, and largely self-taught, Wesley is a fiddler, guitarist, singer and composer. His music blends rock, country, folk, Celtic, and Métis sounds. Critics write that his playing is passionate and compelling to watch, his love of music evident. Wesley took up the fiddle at age thirteen through the outreach work of the Kole Crook Fiddle Association. He later attended the prestigious Gulf Islands School of Performing Arts on Saltspring Island, and now loves teaching Aboriginal youth and being a positive role model. A soulful, natural musician and inspiring young man, he experiments musically and creates emotionally evocative music.

Horsefly Ladies Walking Club to join ALS Walk in WL Once again it is time to get your walking shoes ready for action, and join the Horsefly Walking Ladies for the Annual ALS Walk in Williams Lake June 14 at Boitanio Park. Registration is at 10 a.m. and walk begins at 11 a.m. Last year the Horsefly Walking Ladies — Faye Knox, Nancy Beigh, Gerry Farquharson, Rose Kearney, Monika Schlaepfer, Louise Schleuniger (Esther’s Mom), Esther and Beat Oschwald, and Foxi the dog — and friends collected $1,465. The Horsefly Ladies Walking Club is lead by Esther Oschwald who lost a brother to ALS in 2010. He is her inspiration. ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and

there is simply no way to sugar coat the outcome of ALS. Average survival depending on different factors is 39 months from time of diagnosis. It is an extremely rare disease with no real known cause and no cure. There is some evidence ALS is genetic in some families, but nothing

can be nailed down as fact. It is a frightening prospect to say the least. If you wish to donate, please make cheques payable to ALS BC. Monika Schlaepfer opened a team page http://my.e2rm. c o m / Te a m P a g e. a s p x ? l a n g P re f = e n CA&TSID=481062 on the Internet for

the Ladies Walking Group, so you can visit the page and see what their group is all about. Sixty per cent of all funds collected for BC ALS go to ALS patient services and programs, and the other 40 per cent goes towards research. Corporate sponsors are People’s

Falcons attend ‘AAA’ soccer championships A season for the record books, that’s how coach Caitlin Sabatino would describe the Lake City Secondary School Falcons senior girls soccer season. The team, which successfully qualified for the AAA provincials in the first year as an amalgamated school, travelled to Vancouver Technical School, the hosts, to participate in the provincial tournament this past Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The squad’s first game of the tournament was against a strong team from South Delta, who ended up playing in the championship game on Saturday. The Falcons fell 4-0 to the Sun Devils, however, Sabatino said the team played a fantastic game. “We just lacked some offensive pressure,” Sabatino said, adding the player of the game went to goaltender Morgan Moore. In the Falcons’ second game of the tournament the girls took on the Kelowna Owls. “Unfortunately, the girls had a hard time getting into the game mentally and took their second loss of the tourney,” Sabatino said. Player of the game went to Nisha Khakh. Friday morning brought sunshine and renewed energy as the local squad took on a team from Kitsalano. Heading into halftime the game was tied 0-0 but, again, LCSS was unable to find the back of the net and fell 2-0, ending the round robin 0-3. Player of the game in that ef-

Sunday, June 22 Ride Don’t Hide

On June 22, cyclists in 19 communities across Canada will come together to “Ride Don’t Hide” to support better mental health for all. The Canadian Mental Health Association, Cariboo Chilcotin branch is hosting the event in Williams Lake, taking place at the top of the River Valley Trail on Mackenzie Avenue with registration beginning at noon. This is the second year the ride will take place in Williams Lake. Photo submitted

The Lake City Falcons senior girls soccer team — in its first year as an amalgamated school — played at the ‘AAA’ provincial soccer championships last week at Vancouver Technical School. fort went to Kendall Jensen. Friday’s second game saw Lake City meet North Burnaby in a tightly contested game. In an interesting turn of events, midfielder Nicki Trotter was stripped of a scoring opportunity by an overzealous Vancouver Technical fan, who stole the ball from her — running onto the field from the sidelines — before putting it in the back of the net. This bit of fan shenanigans seemed to break the scoring drought, however, as LCSS finally netted some goals — the first by Montana Reid, who also received player of the game honours. The second came from

Kara Zurak off of a nicely placed penalty shot. Unfortunately, two goals was not enough as the final score was 3-2. The final game of the tournament saw Lake City face the host, Vancouver Technical school. “Both sides played incredibly well with the local team having lots of offensive chances, moving the ball well and playing as a very cohesive team,” she said. The final score ended up being 2-0 in favour of the host school. Final player of the game award went to Nicki Trotter. “Despite the girls record they were very much in all of the games and received accolades

from many of the coaches on their play and sportsmanship,” Sabatino said. The Falcons were also awarded the Fair Play award for the tournament which reiterated their sportsmanship and conduct throughout the entire tournament. “The team will be losing eight seniors this year but the future looks very bright for the local squad and many more provincial opportunities are sure to come,” she said. “The team would like to thank all of the parents, teachers, and businesses that have helped make their inaugural season such an outstanding success.”

Williams Lake perfect at Penticton soccer tourney Williams Lake went unbeaten late May in Penticton during the 53rd Annual Pacific Western Brewery Soccer Tournament. The ladies — Samantha Smolen, Monica McMahen, Kaitlin Fitzgerald, Cora Kelly, Katie McMahen, Niki Siddall, Haylie Loudoun, Michelle Blackburn, Chelann Davis, Ashley Callander, Kelsey Callander, Cheri Murphy, Lauren Pilzek, Raylene Diek and Michelle Thamerus — combined to win the women’s rec division at the event. On the first day of the tournament Williams Lake picked up a 3-0 shutout win over a team from the Lower Mainland.


Next, the lakecity club put together back-to-back wins on the Sunday of the tournament — the first a 2-1 win against Port Coquitlam, the second a decisive victory over Penticton which advanced the team straight to the final. There, Williams Lake combined for a six-goal outburst to beat the home team, Penticton, 6-1 to capture the championship. Blackburn won MVP in the division. On the men’s side, Williams Lake made it three consecutive tournament titles defeating the Pinnacles — who play in the semi-professional Pacific Coast Soccer League — 3-1. Luke Moger was named tournament MVP.

Twenty Williams Lake Blue Fins travelled to Kamloops last weekend to compete in a wrap up meet for most of the club, except provincial qualifiers. Head Coach Chad Webb said he was very pleased with the results once again and thought many of the swimmers exceeded his expectations for the meet. “The competitive results have really been solid in the last few meets as many of the Blue Fins are becoming real challengers in many races,” Webb said. Gracie Frost led the charge on day one as she swam the 50-metre freestyle in a record time of 33.9 seconds and made her first ‘AAA’ provincial standard. This comes just after her last meet where she qualified for ‘AAs’ in a number of events just a few weeks earlier in Kelowna. Gracie continued the great racing through the weekend as she placed second in every event she swam except for a fourth-place finish in the 200-metre individual medley. Keanna Saunders was close on Gracie’s heels as she swam her way to her second ‘AA’ time and clinched her spot to represent Williams Lake at ‘AA’ championsihps in a few short weeks in Victoria. Keanna also qualified in ‘AA’ times in a number of events through the weekend

Ashley Beauchamp although had a slow start to the weekend, but finished up Sunday with three long heat swims and swam all three events again in the finals crushing her morning swims and much of the competition as she won the ‘B’ final in the 200-metre individual medley and finished second in the ‘B’ final in the 100-metre butterfly. She also finished fifth overall in the 200-metre freestyle all in the same night. Mitchell Ryan, Jonny Russell Shaylee Stewart, Chase Stewart, Trayden Stewart, all finished up the season with some big performances as they all qualified for their first ever finals and had some great finishes. Daniel Rich who made finals in 100-metre backstroke and 50-metre backstroke, just missed qualifying for ‘AAs’ as he made the 50-metre freestyle in ‘AA’ time but needed one more ‘AA’ time to

qualify for the meet. Coral Choi repeated her breaststroke domination as she finished the 50-, 100-, and 200-metre breaststroke with two silver medals and a bronze medal and lowered her Blue Fins club records significantly with three best times. The relay teams also had some great results as the senior boys with Trayden, Chase, Daniel and David finishing up eighth in the freestyle relay and ninth in the medley relay. The 11- and 12-yearold boys team of Mitchell, Liam McCreight, Alejandro Birnoni and Landon Christensen finished seventh in the medley relay and fourth in the freestyle relay. The girls 13- and 14-year-old team of Madison Blusson, Kara Zavitz, Coral Choi and Mikah Stewart finished a solid fifth in the freestyle relay and third in the medley relay with a huge swim from Mikah to anchor the medley relay in a 1.5-second best time. The 10-andunder girls with Gra-

cie, Keanna, Taylor Fitzgerald, and Adriene Zimmerman crushed their competition by more than 16 seconds to take first place in the medley relay. Top 8 results were : Gracie Frost — second in 50 free, 100 free, 50 back, 100 back, 50 fly, 100 fly, 200 back, and fourth in the 200 IM; Coral Choi — second in 50 breast and 100 breast, third in 200 breast and seventh in the 100 free; Keanna Saunders — second in 100 breast, third in 200 IM, fourth in 200 free, fifth 100 free, seventh in 50 free, eighth in 50 back; Mitchell Ryan — sixth in 50 back; Ashley Beauchamp — fifth in 200 free; Madison Blusson — fourth in 50 breast, and fourth in 100 breast; Taylor Fitzgerald — seventh in 50 breast, seventh in 100 breast; Danika Robson — seventh in 200 free; Kara Zavitz — eight in 100 back, fifth in 50 back.

Riders solid at first B.C. Downhill Cup Race Williams Lake mountain biker Paul Rohner is making a name for himself in the biking world. Rohner, 15, placed first two weekends ago at the Unicorn 5000 DH Race at Harper Mountain near Kamloops. Rohner was racing in the men’s under-17 division and finished the race in a time of four minutes and 54.17 seconds. He also recorded the third-fastest time of the day crossing the finish line within just 5.5 seconds of the winning time. One hundred and five riders took part in the event, travelling from around B.C. and Alberta to attend.

Rohner and six other local mountain bikers raced during the weekend on June 1 in Kamloops for the first B.C. Downhill Cup Race of the season. Cory Brunelle finished 19th in a time of two minutes and 9.78 seconds in the men’s elite class — the quickest of the local riders. In the 30-plus men’s division Tim Seaward raced to a third-place finish in two minutes and 52.13 seconds while Wes Wiebe finished fifth in three minutes and 9.19 seconds. In the under-15 class Mason Seaword reached the podium in second place with a time of two minutes and 28.23 seconds. Josh Wiebe, in the

Riske Creek’s Jake Ilnicki will suit up for Canada this month.

Ilnicki named to Canada’s roster for international series Canada head coach Kieran Crowley has released his 26-man roster for the upcoming June International Series to play against Japan, Scotland and the U.S. in Burnaby, Toronto and Sacramento, and Riske Creek’s Jake Ilnicki is on it. “I think there’s a lot of competition right now which creates some difficult decisions for the coaching staff and why our selection meeting took longer than expected. Full credit goes to the players who have given us their all and there will no doubt be some sad players, but that’s rugby,” said Crowley after the announcement. The announcement follows an exciting match on Saturday afternoon at Klahanie Park in West Vancouver between the Can-

ada Selects and a BC Invitational Team. Despite trailing 26-7 early in the second half, the hosts took a narrow 27-26 victory in front of nearly 800 fans celebrating BC Rugby’s 125th Anniversary. “Overall from tonight’s game I was pleased with the effort. The more time we spend together we’ll work on things like ball handling but there was a good showing of skill today and we need to carry that forward to next week,” added Crowley. Canada will now train in Burnaby ahead of next Saturday’s Pacific Nations Cup clash against Japan at Swangard Stadium. Japan is fresh off qualifying for the Men’s Rugby World Cup after winning the recent Asian 5 Nations tournament

and defeating Samoa last weekend. “We’ll have a lot of work to do this week before the Japan test; it will be our first game together and they’ve had five recently and we always have difficult games against them. We’ve selected a group of guys that I know will give it their best shot and we will certainly look to put our best performance on the field,” said Crowley. Following the Japan test, Canada will depart for Toronto on Sunday, June 7 to face Scotland on June 14 at BMO Field. The team will round off their June schedule in Sacramento, CA., against the U.S. Eagles on June 21. For tickets to the upcoming internationals, please visit: http://

headroom and some room to stretch out either piloting or co-piloting the Micra. Under hard acceleration, primarily from the 4-speed automatic, the Micra is quite vocal. You can really hear the engine noise intrude the cabin. It’s not a performance machine like the Nissan GT-R, where you want to hear as much ruckus as you can. However, when cruising at highway speeds – without the lead foot acceleration – my driving partner and I noticed how quiet the cabin is. Wind noise is kept at bay and it’s serene. Furthermore, it was an incredibly blustery day when we took these pint-sized four-doors out. Needless to say, you could feel the swagger of the car at highway speeds. But in its defense, larger vehicles felt the wrath of Mother Nature’s blow, too.

While very affordable, the Micra isn’t “cheap” in execution. Even the knobs on the roll down windows have a soft touch to them. And there are metallic accents to break up the otherwise bland black interior. I certainly wasn’t disappointed when captaining the Micra. Even though that might sound like a backhanded compliment, it’s not. As far as small cars go, it’s functional, funky and has great value. Whether you’re looking for a vehicle that gets you from point A to B – minus all the options – or said vehicle with a few extras, the 2015 Micra might be the car for you. Summed up, the Micra is affordable transportation with amiable drivability, an easy-on-the eyes interior and overall a bubbly personality.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 Williams Lake Tribune


Lakecity residents invited to get involved with Canada Summer Games Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake is being invited to participate in the 2015 Canada Games taking place in Prince George. The Canada Games are held every second year. They feature 19 sports, mostly traditional winter events, however, games like badminton will also be on the roster. “The variety allows for gender balance and a variety of venues,” Canada Games Host Society CEO Stuart Ballantyne told city council Tuesday. Thirty-plus venues will host the games during 18 days and it is anticipated they will generate $90 million in revenue, create more than 700 jobs and draw 15,000 additional visitors. It’s the third time the games have been hosted in B.C., but the first time for the winter edition. For the first time ever, the games will have a First Nations host, with the Lheidli T’enneh taking on that role. A medal design contest and markets throughout the Games will engage artists, as well. In June a call for torch bearers will go out, director of marketing and communications Mike Davis said. “We have 150 spots for torch bearers and will take nominations from anyone who is inspiring in your community,” Davis said. Torch bearers should exhibit four core values: sport, youth, culture and community. Selected torch bearers will be names in September. Cities are also being asked to compete to host one of three major torch events. The torch will tour from Nov. 4 until February when the

games begin. Northern BC Tourism has developed three pillars for the

games, including a tiny house concept to represent and showcase the main four

regions of central and northern B.C. As well, the Northern BC Plaza in

Prince George will provide an opportunity to showcase the way northern commu-

nities celebrate, such as the Williams Lake Stampede. “In June we will be

sending out letters to all of our cities, outlining our plans,” Davis said.

The Impact of Mentoring on Williams Lake’s Youth What if every child in Williams Lake... ... fulfills his or her potential? set on the right path today? ... finishes high school, goes to college or university, gets a job and gives back to their community?

Youth who have been matched with a mentor are: 48% less likely to have behaviour problems in school.

Wouldn’t that be something? 43% less likely to have conduct problems in school. 34% less likely to allow themselves to be victimized or bullied by peers.


more likely to have high levels of school bonding and commitment


more likely to have high academic achievement


more likely to participate in extra-curricular school activities

ALL THIS FOR AS LITTLE AS 1 HOUR A WEEK! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Williams Lake Find out how you can become a mentor. Call 250-398-8391 •
