Colin Easthope brings his distinct sound that mixes traditional folk lyrics and blues riffs with an edgy alt-country flair back home as he performs Saturday afternoon in the scorching heat at the seventh annual Arts on the Fly music festival out in Horsefly. Easthope currently lives in Vancouver, but grew up here in the lakecity.

Hot weather greeted music lovers as they flocked to Horsefly this past weekend for the seventh annual Arts on the Fly music festival. The festival got started on Friday night and saw a number of performers entertain until midnight, and then even through the scorching heat Saturday, festivals goers and performers did not complain as the music continued on till midnight. Young Williams Lake musicians Rowan Dolighan and Sam Tudor entertained the crowd on Saturday afternoon, following lakecity pop/ punk band Calling April who despite the heat had people up dancing. A festival favorite and Horsefly locals, Jason and Pharis Romero played to a full house in the new acoustic stage, which was in the fire hall. The room was hot, stuffy and crowded but no one complained as the duo entertained with their beautiful harmonies and spectacular banjo playing. Overall with all the vendors, performers, and workshops it was another successful festival and everyone is looking forward to next year.

Over the weekend, the Williams Lake RCMP responded to approximately 65 calls for service ranging from small fires to break and enters. On Saturday evening, the RCMP responded to a report that a youth had set fire to a garbage can at the skateboard park. Witnesses reported that the youth had a can of bear spray and when the top broke off he placed the can into the garbage container and lit it on fire. The fire department attended to extinguish the small fire. The mat-

ter is still under investigation. In the early morning hours of Sunday July 15, the RCMP responded to a report of a male in a black hoody and a red hat who appeared to have a machete tucked into his pants in the vicinity of the Cariboo Memorial Hospital. Police arrived and located a male who had a knife in his left hand. The male was placed under arrest for possession of a concealed weapon. The male was identified and confirmed as being a youth, consequently he

was released to the custody of his mother and released. Also in the early morning hours of Sunday, July 15, the RCMP responded to a report of a house fire. The report was that an apartment on 3rd Ave had a lot of smoke in it and the stove was on. Police attended and entered the unit, which was filled with thick smoke. There was no fire but burnt food in a pan on the stove was determined to be the cause. Police located the occupant, who was

unharmed, sleeping on the couch, roused him and got him out of the apartment. The building fire alarm went off causing the tenants to vacate for a short time. Once smoke cleared residents returned to their suites. No further action by police was required. Over $3000 worth of merchandise was damaged and a large quanity of sterling silver rings were stolen in a break and enter in Horsefly. Police responded to a report of a break, enter and theft at a vendor

tent at the Arts on the Fly music festival in Horsefly Sunday afternoon. Police spoke with the owner of the vendor tent, who stated that someone had broken into his business tent, damaged approximately $3000 worth of the merchandise, and stolen approximately 100 Silver sterling rings, which are worth approximately $20 each. The matter is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or call Crimestoppers.

ect and bringing the plan to fruition.” The proposed plan is comprised of three phases which will be spread over the 10-year lifetime of the Solid Waste Management Plan. Phase one calls for the conversion of nine of the Regions busiest transfer stations and landfills to controlled sites, with provisions for recycling facilities and improved services for over-sized items, metals and wood waste. The remaining rural communities will also gain access to recycling. Back yard composters are proposed to be sold at a discount to rural and municipal residents for a two to three year period depending on demand. In Phase two, the establishment of Eco Depots in each of the CRD’s member municipalities (Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Quesnel) would be undertaken. Windrow composting of yard, garden and veggie waste is also proposed to be trialed to determine feasibility. The third and final phase would see a continuation of a number of initiatives such as improved public education campaigns, sorting of demolition and wood waste, and improved hauling efficiencies.

Waste Management program is available online at cariboord. or by calling the

The final draft of the Cariboo Regional District’s (CRD) Updated Solid Waste Management Plan was approved in principle last night during a Special Board of Directors Meeting. The plan will now be presented to the North, Central and South Cariboo Joint Committees over the summer and early fall. Once consultation has occurred with the municipalities, the proposed plan will be forwarded to the Ministry of Environment for provincial endorsement. Over the last two years the Solid Waste Advisory Committee, CRD staff and consultants have gathered information from regional residents in order to develop a comprehensive 10-year plan that includes access to recycling for all CRD residents, and a gradual 50 per cent diversion of solid waste by 2021, while maintaining an affordable system. “A tremendous amount of work, research and consideration has been invested in this proposed Solid Waste Management Plan,” stated CRD Chair Al Richmond. “Thank you to the 24 volunteer committee members from across the region, and our Solid Waste Management staff for their countless hours of dedication to this proj-

Le Cheap, C’est Chic Clothing Company offers affordable and unique garments

Mark your calendars for Miracle Treat Day With the hot weather upon us, there is nothing like a cold treat and when the proceeds from that treat go to helping children in need, it’s a win-win situation. Thursday, July 26 is the 10th annual Miracle Treat Day at out local Dairy Queen, and during this event all the proceeds from the sale of Blizzard treats will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network to ben-

efit B.C.’s Children’s Hospital. “Last year we raised over $7,000 right here in Williams Lake,� said Janna Gertzen, one of the owners of the local Dairy Queen Grill and Chill. Gertzen encourages everyone to mark their calendars for this special day to help support a cause that each year helps a non-profit organizations dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children.

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor After moving to Williams Lake last year from the Lower Mainland with her husband and three children, Nicole Martin noticed the lack of affordable, but cute, clothes for the ladies. “Through talking with a friend I was directed to Natalie Preston and her company Le Cheap, C’est Chic Clothing Company and became a sales rep for Williams Lake,� Martin said. She said she noticed there was a lack of variety for ladies clothing shops, and that some of the boutiques in town are a little pricey – and that’s why she loves Le Cheap, C’est Chic so much. “I have cute items that are affordable and unique,� she said. “I only bring in a limited amount of sizes for each item.� May 5, 2012 was her launch date in town and she is selling the clothes out of her home, at the Oliver Street Farmers’ Market on Saturdays and, if ladies wish, at their homes.


“The idea of a shopping party is so fun. You can get together with your friends, have appetizers and wine all while shopping,� Martin said. “The parties are a lot of fun, lots of laughs and ladies usually offer up honest opinions to their friends of what looks good or not.� Martin does have a background in retail, working with ladies in retail stores for eight years. “I love helping women find items that look great on them and help them feel pretty,� she said. “We all like to feel confident and pretty.� Martin and her husband, along with their children Bly, 5, Tatyanna, 2, and Kypling, 1, are enjoying the slower pace of life here in the lakecity. Martin’s goal in the next five to 10 years is to open up her own boutique in town. “It’s been a slow start so far, but I am confident in the product and hope to grow my repeating customers,� she said. “I look forward to growing in Williams Lake.� Courtney Taylor photo

Ives, Dickson get set for Cops for Cancer ride Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Const. Chris Ives of the Williams Lake RCMP considers himself an active person and majored in physical education in university. He will be putting his athletic abilities to the test this September, along with Dave Dickson, participating in the Cops For Cancer Tour de North bike ride. “This is my first time participating in the ride," Ives said. “It's something I’ve always wanted to do.”

Along with Dickson, who Ives said is a source of inspiration for him, he has been training for the past nine weeks and so far has ridden more than 1,200 kilometres. “Cancer has never touched my life, but if my efforts can help just one person than that would be worth it,” he said. Ives said he has had an interest in sports and keeping active most of his life but road biking is a new goal for him and so far he says he really enjoys it. “I am looking for-

ward to seeing more of B.C. – I am originally from the Maritimes,” he said. “I’ve been here for the past three years and it’s home.” Ives said he’s also looking forward to comradeship of the trip, meeting new people and having a good time for a great cause. “I hope to ride again next year too.” The Tour de North switches its route each year – this year the riders will start in Prince George and finish in Prince Rupert, completing 850 km in just seven days.

Report confirms staff and first responders minimized harm An investigative report into the Feb. 26 chlorine incident at the Sam Ketcham Pool by the Lifesaving Society has found that the harmful effects of the incident were minimized by coordinated efforts of facility staff, those associated with swim and hockey teams, and first responders. The City requested that the Society investigate the incident and to make recommendations to help identify issues and prevent a similar incident in the future. The Lifesaving Society made several procedural recommendations, most of which the City had already implemented following the incident. Suggestions include reviewing evacuation plans, improved liaison and planning between facility staff/manage-

ment and other emergency agencies in the community along with a review and revision of post-incident procedures. “This report confirms that Complex staff, and first responders responded professionally and effectively during the incident,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “We also want to recognize that the Lifesaving Society found that swim club and hockey team volunteers performed admirably. Our first priority at the Complex has always been safety, and we never stop looking for ways to improve it. As such, the Lifesaving Society recommendations are being fully implemented to help prevent similar incidents from occurring.” A liquid chlorine system was installed in

the Sam Ketcham Pool in March, and there is no chlorine gas remaining on the Complex site. The Lifesaving Society (also known as Royal Life Saving Society Canada) is a not for-profit organization that responds to requests for an expert opinion in a strictly unbiased, non-partisan manner in order to further the goal of reducing drowning and aquatic-related injury. The Society is the recognized authority in Canada in aquatic safety, lifesaving and lifeguarding standards. The report can be found on the City of Williams Lake website at http://www. asp?p=2218

Young athletes grow with the support of their community As the world gears up for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Williams Lake residents can look towards supporting our very own young athletes as they take off for BC Summer games this weekend. Every young athlete needs to start somewhere, whether their dream is to compete at the Olympics one day or to just be the very best they can be. In Williams Lake we are very lucky to have a great selection of sport clubs, dedicated coaches and volunteers and have produced some star athletes. The list of Williams Lake and area athletes that are going to B.C. Summer games in Surrey this week is a great example of how

well we nurture our athletes in town. Even though we are a small town, we as a community support our athletes giving them the confidence to reach for their goals no matter how big or small. Carey Price went for his goal and is now starting goalie for the Montreal Canadians, Kayla Moleschi went for her goals and has been training with the Team Canada’s Women’s rugby team since January and played with the team in Dubai in the fall of 2011. The list of success stories coming from Williams Lake continues to grow each year. There are number of Canadian athletes going to London

who still associate themselves with small towns, such as Gabe Bergen, who is part of the men’s eight rowing team, who still says he's from 100 Mile House. With the love and support from volunteers, coaches, parents, friends and family the young athletes may grow and achieve great things such as competing at the Olympics. Another young Williams Lake athlete who is achieving big goals is young Conley Pinette. Since the age of eight, he has been competing in waterskiing following in his father’s footsteps. The last weekend of July, will see the BC Waterskiing Provincials come to Chimney Lake, which is exciting for Williams Lake

and would not be possible with Conley and his family. Conley will have a chance to do what he loves in front of his hometown. It’s exciting to see Williams Lake be put on the map by our young athletes, but it is with the support of the community that their success is possible. So when the Summer Olympics start in London July 27, let all of Williams Lake cheer for the Canadians athletes and remember a lot of them were nurtured in a small community just like Williams Lake. Maybe one day in the near future, we will be cheering for one of our own as they complete their goal of competing on the greatest level of sports there is.

Keep our summer fire free It may be hot out, but that also mean the risk of thunder storms increase as well. Over the weekend, lakecity residents had an amazing lighting show, but that lighting also caused 12

fires throughout the Cariboo. It was thanks to many quick reports from residents that helped keep many fires from getting out of control. As we experience

more rain, and lighting in the coming weeks lets all remember to remain diligent and report any smoke or fires we may see. We want to continue enjoying summer and not have to worry

about forest fires, and all the smoke and haze that come along with them. Also remember with the heat, the forests are dry so please respect all campfire restrictions that are in place.

A wild and crazy time at the grocery store Carmen got sidetracked and gave me the task of buying the week’s groceries with implicit instructions to stick to the list. My first challenge was that I couldn’t get the quarter and the cart to cooperate. Good thing there was a little old lady handy. Of course I would get the one with the wonky wheel. Now given free reign at the supermarket was a fantasy come true. Although I resisted running completely wild, I did purchase all those forbidden items I always wanted to when shopping with Carmen, where I was reduced to the status of a mere cart pusher. Mind you, I had

practically filled the cart before I remembered to check the list. Of course not being familiar where everything was, I put the entire floor staff on the run. Caught up in a bout of terminal cheerfulness, they were hard pressed to remain so while meeting my demands. I couldn’t

find the cucumbers so I asked the grocery clerk where they were. “Where they always are!” he retorted. Well how the hell am I supposed to know that? I’ve only shopped there fiftytwo times. By the way, have you seen the price of cereal these days? Wow! With the return on wheat for the poor farmers at nothing a bushel, you figure that the mark up on this stuff must be approaching a thousand percent. And the choice for pure foodstuff is still limited. I remember getting into an arm wrestle with my granddaughter over a package of some

chocolate covered cereal crap she insisted on buying. In the end, we compromised and she picked up a sugarcoated brand bound to get her hyped up and harder to deal with. Carmen used to say there is likely more nutrition in the box than the contents. I resisted the temptation to scamper down the aisle stamping everything ‘nutrition free’. While thanks to modern chemistry, everything now has over 50 years of shelf life. Shouldn’t all these preservatives work on us oldies? We could use a longer shelf life. I was not brought up with epicurean tastes. My old man had a working class ethic to food.

Plain and simple and lots of it. As I remember dad was one of those who didn’t eat anything he could not put ketchup on. Me? I’ve been a vegetarian since 1975 and strictly organic since the mid-eighties, so you know where I’m coming from. I remember when I informed my father of my vegetarianism and his response was; “What! You don’t eat meat? You must be wacky! “So to carry on, I headed immediately for the organic veggie section. Getting completely carried away, I fell in love with a head of lettuce. A fresh, green and red leafy triumph. Not a lot of nutrition here as they are mostly water, but great

roughage. Remember those TV ads; ’to make fiber your friend’? Well who wants to eat fiber? Give me a good banana any time. I missed Carmen’s approach to shopping. She had a penchant for shouting across the aisles; “Did you get the onions’? Furthermore, every time she sent me on a task to get something she’s never where I left her 30 seconds before. It usually takes me two complete tours around the store before I find her. Usually in a corner talking to an acquaintance. Well okay, I admit I sometimes get distracted by the lady handing out free pizza slices. And occasionally

I find myself standing transfixed by the headlines on the supermarket tabloids. I am now faced with the task of going through the check out counter under the suspicious eyes of the female clerk, without Carmen. Okay maybe a few transgressions. I have come to realize that what rules out over common sense when eating, is the pleasantness of taste, the desire to please self. So I did, even if I do consider myself a semi-wise shopper. Now I still have to pass the good wife test on what I bought. Oh well, it is, as they say, in the hands of the Gods. You probably know how it will go.

The deadline for applications is August 15. The Junior Council is a group of seven high school students from Grades 10-12

Contemplating Ken with Ken Wilson

Park...BC’s largest, Barkerville, Horsefly, Likely, the beautiful Bella Coola valley and coast. Yes there is so much to see and do right in our own backyard, it sometimes makes one wonder why go anywhere else. I often wonder why

anyone would go fishing in some other spot in BC, when we here in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast are blessed with very good saltwater, freshwater lakes and river fishing. We are favoured with so much in this province that it is sometimes difficult to determine where to take your BC travels. There are six tourism regions in BC and if you were to travel to the coast and take in that which Vancouver and the Coast Mountains have to offer, you could spend a lot of time there. Or perhaps Vancouver Island with the Provinces Capital

City Victoria along with many unique cities, towns and villages, and magnificent seascapes is something that might interest you. Maybe Thompson Okanagan with its diversity, Kootenay Rockies or spectacular Northern BC that is rich in history and tradition has sometime to tweak your travelling curiosity. It is well known that we live in one of the cleanest areas in the world and BC and of course has some of most spectacular scenery anywhere on the globe. How fortunate are

we to reside in this province of BC. So if your summer travel plans or ideas are still not edged in concrete, why not take the time to visit our beautiful Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. So much to much to do. Be a tourist in our own region or somewhere in this great and vast province. Here’s another reason to stay home... the tourism sector employed 127 thousand British Columbians, and generated over $13.5 billion in revenue. Keep the money and jobs at home. Good Travels.

to serve on the Junior Council are that the person be a student at a Williams Lake high school, is 18 years old or younger, and must be able to attend at least 75% of Junior Council meetings. Applications can be submitted by e-mail

to juniorcouncil@ or by dropping off the application form at the city or giving it to one of the current Junior Council members: Talia Baptiste, Cody Haley-York, Ivona Ognjanova, Abbi Taylor, Patrick Newsome, and Ana Lomavatu. For more information, contact Manager of Social Development Anne Burrill at 250392-8480.

that suggest ideas that could enhance life for youth in the city. Junior Council members are appointed by City Council and provide a youth voice to decisions made by the city. It is an opportunity to learn about and participate in the


process of local government. Junior Councillors will attend 2-4 meetings a month, will take turns attending City Council meetings, and help plan activities to engage youth in civic affairs, among other duties. Requirements

Bell-E-Acres to offer family go carting in lakecity Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Looking to add something different to the family entertainment scene in

Williams Lake the owners of Bell-E-Acres Recreation, Gabe and Peggi Pukacz, are placing go carting on their list of activities.

“We want to add more family entertainment to what we already offer," Gabe said. "Not everyone golfs but parents and children can go cart together." For the past 12 years, his wife and three children have owned and operated Bell-E-Acres, which currently offers nine holes of par three golf. “The best par three in town,” he said. They also have 18 hole mini golf and a pinic area large enough to have 300 people on site. “It’s great for family functions or office parties,” Gabe said. The idea of go carts

came to him three years ago, and he said it’s been a long process and a costly one, but one he’s really excited to offer to Williams Lake. “A lot of people say there isn’t much to do,” he said. "We are going to have 14 cars – 10 singles and four doubles.” Pukacz said he did surveys and the response he received was really good. He also said golfers have noticed the track going in have said it’s a great idea and are looking forward to the track opening up. “Before we could even start building the track or anything we

Gabe Pukacz, of Bell-E-Acres, shows off one of his new go carts. Bell-E-Acres will start offering go carting by the end of July and Pukacz and his wife Peggi are looking forward to offering the new family entertainment service to the residents of Williams Lake and surrounding areas. had to have environmental reviews done, and other planning steps,” he said. “And then, when were ready for construction, the weather was against us and it rained, and now that I want to be out working on the cars it’s too hot.” As long of a process as it has been, Pukacz along with his children Jared, Mitchell and Katrina and his wife

are all looking forward to the go carts being open to the public. “We hope to have them going by the end of the month,” he said. "We are going to have them running starting around noon so the golfers can have some quiet in the morning.” As for the details, Pukacz said not all of them have been worked out just yet, but people can expect

to pay a reasonable fee for a set time on the course. "Since there is nothing like this near by we hope to have a good crowd to be drawing from.” But until the go carts are up and going, golf is still the main attraction and Pukacz said one good thing about the heat is it makes for excellent night golf conditions.

Taseko to be busy in coming weeks Taseko has work to do in the coming weeks, in a recent letter from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency dated July 6th, Taesko’s draft Environmental Impact Statement regarding New Prosperity Mine does not meet the agency’s requirements. Meaning Taseko will have to work to fill in the gaps, missing information and address the deficiencies the agency highlighted in the letter. Brian Battision, Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Taseko, says the letter is an administrative step and it allows CEAA to give comment and guidance to us as we work towards completion of our environmental impact statement. Taseko has until July 21 to file their formal Environmental Impact Statement; a decision is expected in November to the fate of New Prosperity Mine. In other Taseko news, they have provided an update on its GDP3 project. The GDP3 project is set to increase Gibraltar concentrator capacity to 85,000 tons per day. Commissioning will begin in December of this year and ramp up to design capacity is expected to take six months.

On a 100% basis, total budget for the construction of the 30,000 ton per day concentrator is $235 million. Total funds spent or committed on that portion is approximately $190 million. Total budget for the project of $325 million includes $90 million for new mining equipment. New mining equipment has been ordered and these costs are fixed. The SAG mill and ball mill components are on site and erection of the grinding mills is underway. Flotation cells will be shipped to Gibraltar in July. Over the next few weeks, contractors on site will increase to 270 as construction shifts from civil and structural activities to major mechanical and electrical installations. Additional mine equipment has already started arriving with the first two of ten additional haul trucks now operating and the remaining eight trucks arriving over the next 12 months. Components of a new Bucyrus 495R mining shovel are arriving at site and the shovel will be operational in November. For further information on Taseko, check out the company's website

Summer Safety Tips for pet owners

TRU supports stampede Photo submitted

Dr. Ray Sanders presenting outgoing Stampede Queen Davana Mahon with a $450 Tuition Credit. TRU - Williams Lake will be offering a tuition credit to all future outgoing Stampede Queens to assist them in pursuing their educational goals.

Submitted by the Animal Care Hospital As the hot weather continues, you might be well aware of how to keep yourself safe and comfortable in the heat, but don’t forget about your pets. Here are some summer safely tips from the Animal Care Hospital. Make sure there is always plenty of water available for your pet, even if you are only away for a short time. If your animals travels with you this may mean that you’ll want to find a collapsible water dish and a larger canteen or water bottle designated to your four-legged friends. Don’t allow an animal to ride loose in the back of a pick-up truck. According to the law, animals must be properly secured either with a body harness (not a neck collar) or in an enclosed box or kennel. hanging, dragging or collision injuries are all possible should the

animal fall over the side. Also, make sure that there is some shade, sufficient air flow and protection for their feet from the hot metal of the truck bed. Be extra diligent and watch for parasites, especially ticks and fleas. Prepare a pet-only first aide kit that you take with you, we at the Animal Care Hospital can provide you with a list of items you should include. Avoid feeding your animal with food that sits outside for long periods. Not only does this practice tend to attract insects, rodents and predators, but it can also lead to food of inferior quality. If your pets have issues when traveling, you may want to talk to your veterinarian about possible solutions. There are both medicines and physical aides that can help. Please don’t leave any animal alone in a car, truck or trailer on a warm or hot day. Even if

you think that it is not that hot, the temperature in vehicle can soar to 40 degree C in a very short time. If you think keeping your pet outside is safer, you might want to think again. Animals can’t cool

themselves as efficiently as we can. Consider planning travel or other outdoor activities for the cooler time of the day. These are just a few tips and reminders to help keep your beloved pets safe this summer.

Caravan to stop in lakecity The Kootenay to Kitimat Caravan, which is a group of people who are against the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline, started their ten day caravan from Nelson to Kitimat July 16. Along the way they are stopping in different communities to do Enbridge solidarity events. They are stopping in a number of communities on the way to Kitimat and then returning to the Kootenay’s on July 26. The Kootenay to Kitimat Caravan is stopping in Williams Lake tomorrow, July 19. They will be in the Herb Gardener Park across from City Hall

at 11 a.m. and invite all those who don’t support the Enbridge pipeline to join them. The group hopes to meet many activists along the way and help create many public events. The Caravan asks that if you can’t go, but want to send your message of support you can take part in a number of ways. Show your support by signing the proclamation against the pipeline, make a donation to cover Caravan costs, sign up on their facebook page ‘Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC, or show your concern with letters, petitions, tweets or more.

Sean Kelly, in car 66, takes the checkered flag in the Bone Stock mini heat races Saturday during the Christmas in July races. Kelly had an excellent night finishing in first in the trophy dash and the main event, as well as the heat race. He is currently sitting in first place in points in his class with 79.

Two local racers had a good night at Thunder Mountain Speedway Saturday night for the Christmas in July races. Sean Kelly, in car 66, won the trophy dash, the heat race, which is ten laps, and the main event, which is 20 laps in the Bone Stock mini class. He only missed the fastest time, which went to James Becker in car 69. Kelly is sitting with 79 points, which puts him on top in his class, he was rookie of the year in 2011 and is set to have another great racing season in 2012. Another racer who ended up having a good night was Jessie Fisher in car 35. He started the night off rough getting tangled up with Willy

Frank in car 53 during the first lap of the Thunder class heat race. He lost a back tire and damaged his axel and wasn’t able to participate in the heat race. The good news was he was able to work quickly in the pits to get his car ready to race and in the Thunder class main event and took the checkered flag. Last year, Fisher had a great season and was points leader, this year he had a rough start but is on his way to that title once again. In the Heartland Pro Mini class, Tim Roberts in car 25 was the one to beat as he took the checkered flag in the heat races and the main event. It was a close race between Roberts,

Marius Dunford and Billy Beasley in the main event as all three cars stayed close for most of the race. In the Streetstock class, Donnie Kunka and his dad Arnie only managed to race the qualifiers, and trophy dash before they both suffered mechanical issues that kept them from racing the rest of the night. It was Christmas in July at Thunder Mountain, which meant toys and food were collected and will be donated to the local Salvation Army later this month. Next race at Thunder Mountain are the Memorial races on August 25, time trials start at 5 p.m. and races start at 6 p.m.

join us as a member, membership info is also available on our website. This year we are proud to be providing a BC Off Road Association “Trail Pass” with each membership purchased. These “passes” are not required to ride on any specific trails, but rather show our ongoing support to BCORMA who is the only voice lobbying for the interests of off road bikers in British Columbia. The money from the sale of each trail pass goes toward ensuring that we and future generations will always have a place to recreate on crown land. As an added option, the trail pass can be upgraded to a “Platinum Trail Pass” which provides its owner with third party liability insurance which is legally required in BC if you plan on using your unlicensed bike on FSR’s (forest service roads) , the liability insurance covers you even off of FSR’s! Peace of mind at a great

price! Contact us for more info, or check out for the fine print details! As always, WLORMA would encourage all off road users to respect the areas and other users of the places they ride in. Be sure to ask for permission for access to private property, be sure to close all range gates that you open, be respectful around cattle and horses, be aware that mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders share the same areas as we do. WLORMA would like to give a huge high five to the mountain bikers in our area for the success of their registered trail network on Fox Mountain. As we too are pursuing a registered trail network we admire the amount of time and commitment that a small group of riders have given for the good of a huge demographic of riders members or not. WLORMA

asks all dirt bikers to show the utmost of respect for the hard work that has gone into the Fox Mountain network by passing through these areas cautiously, staying off of man-made obstacles, and remembering that most mountain bike traffic flows downhill. If you would like to lend your support to WLORMA in the development of our own recreation area please join us as a member great things are coming in the near future. Lastly, the annual famous Overlander Cross Country is scheduled for the September 9, 2012. We look forward to seeing all of you out at the event as spectators and maybe even ride with some of the best in the Province! Remember, riding on crown land is a privilege not a right. Be responsible and respectful to be a good ambassador for the sport that we love so much dirt biking!

Clinic for aboriginal youth involves more than just soccer Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor After the success of a spring session, Bruce Baptiste wanted to bring another soccer development clinic for aboriginal youth to the lakecity. Baptiste is an employee with the Punky Lake Wilderness Camp Society and the soccer clinic was hosted by the Punky Lake Wilderness Camp Society over the weekend. Baptiste, along with Dano Thorne who was the main instructor for the soccer clinic and Buzz Manuel, who is a Sport &

Activity Coordinator for the Interior Region with the Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council, put on the clinic Saturday at Thompson Rivers University, Williams Lake campus for10 youth. “We had an indoor camp back on March 31st and April 1st, and wanted to bring it back because the kids really enjoyed it,” Baptiste said.

but that the heat did hurt attendance. ‘We were hoping to get at least 20 participants, but those that did come had a good time,” Baptiste said. photo submitted

Decor & Decorating:

Express Yourself with Color Are you courageous when it comes to decorating your home? Many of us would like to be as creative as possible but need guidance to venture out from the neutrals -- and into something more powerfully beautiful. Color is the most important tool in the toolbox, say experts, who often add that one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to infuse the home with color is with paint. "People often feel intimidated by this type of expression and that's why so much of our country is beige and off-white," says Genevieve Gorder, a renowned interior designer and color expert. "We need to remember that color is a great balancer in a space; it's a juggling act between neutrals, grounding shades, highlight and accent." When choosing a paint palette for any room, Gorder notes, there are four key components to ensure powerful effects while keeping a harmonious balance: neutrals, which are the beige or creamiest versions of any color; the grounding shades, like blacks, browns and grays; the highlights, like the bright white on moldings and window trim; and the allimportant saturated pops of color which add life to any room. "You might want your pop of color

to be a powerful accent wall," Gorder continued. "Then, you can complement it with neutral upholstery and grounding accents in the accessories to balance it all." For additional guidance, inspiration -- and even liberation -- here are this decorator's favorite tips. * If you want to incorporate a trendy color into your home but feel intimi-

dated, start small with paint or decor accents that are inexpensive. This way, you can always change your mind if you fall in love with something new or want to refresh the look of your room. * Use the chip rack at your retailer to find color families and their complementing shades. A popular way to find an accent, for example, is to go a few shades darker in the same family. – (MS)

Third Annual Clark’s Classic a big success This year’s Clark’s Classic soccer tournament saw eight teams from thoughout B.C play during the day on Saturday. This was the third annual Clark’s Classic, which is named after Clark Glaniville a local teacher,

soccer coach, referee and enthusiast. The tourney raised $1,600 for the families of Alysha Mullett and Rayel McDonald, which the touney was dedicated to the tow girls. The theme for the tour-

nament was Battle of the Bands, with all the teams have a band inspired name and some with costumes to match. The ‘Kiss This’ team for example had Kiss inspired costumes and some players even had their faces

painted. The day was hot so for the final game, the two teams decided on a shoot out. The winner was team Devo, and after four games and the shoot out they were named the winners of the tournament.

IN THEATRES THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Eight years ago, Batman (Christian Bale) vanished into the night. He took the blame for the death of Harvey Dent, going from hero to fugitive, sacrificing everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) hoped was the greater good. For a while, criminal activity in Gotham City was kept to a minimum due to the anticrime Dent Act, but everything changes when a cunning cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) with a mysterious agenda arrives on the scene. When masked terrorist Bane (Tom Hardy) emerges, his intent to destroy Gotham drives Bruce out of his self-imposed exile and back into action. SAVAGES Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Aaron Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Taylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry—growing some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Blake Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town... until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon—with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta)—wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.

HOROSCOPE Aries, the week may begin a little off-kilter, but you’ll find that by Wednesday or Thursday, things turn around significantly. Opportunities for socialization arise. Take inventory of your life this week, Taurus, and make the necessary tweaks to align you with your primary goals. Take a cue from someone organized.

Gemini, you’re inspired to do something creative. Narrow down the possibilities. Maybe you want to paint indoors or take on a new craft hobby. Either way you’ll find success.

Even the most organized people can get tripped up once in a while, Cancer. This week you may be unable to keep track of things. Keep your cool, and you will get it under control.

Influential people will be moving in your social circles, Virgo. Failure to introduce yourself and network could lead to setbacks in your employment goals.

Summertime and the living is easy It’s about time we received some nice warm weather to celebrate that which summer brings to us in this beautiful part of the world. I heard more people complain about the weather this spring than I have heard for a long time. The cool rainy period for the last three months has people grouching somewhat, especially this last June when we in BC were growing webbed feet. The warm weather came in the nick of time to save some of the fruit crops in the lower mainland. One thing I like at this time of the year is the fresh fruits and vegetables we get from

the Okanagan and around BC. Save on Foods in Williams Lake purchases a lot of locally grown fruit and veggies from around the province and here in the Cariboo. Now the cherries are ready to eat I will generally pig out on them, especially if they are good. Try cherries jubilee if you have never had the pleasure of eating this wonderful dish.

Another reason I like this time of the year it is when we can spend most of our cooking outside. Sure, you can even do breakfast on the bar-by It doesn’t matter whether you are cooking on a gas barbecue, a charcoal unit or over the campfire, the food all tends to taste a little bit better, even some of those little charcoal bits of food can be pretty tasty, if you don’t mind a crunch to your food. Vegetables are nice in the summertime, especially if they are grilled on the barbecue as it tends to bring out the sweetness in each of them.

Take control of a situation that arises, Leo, because right now it seems no one else is capable of handling the situation. You may prove to be an excellent leader.

Summertime Grilled Vegies 2 medium zucchini 1 eggplant 2 red pepper 2 yellow peppers 6 leeks fresh ground black pepper to taste extra virgin olive oil 1 bunch of basil 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar 2 garlic cloves Seasoned sea taste Put the whole peppers on the barbecue and grill until they are blackened. Put them in a plastic wrap when done and let them cool. Then peel off the black and cut up. Slice the zucchini and put on the grill then cook until

done. Cut the eggplant and grill sliced pieces. Make sure the leeks are clean and then rub them with a little oil to cook. Put all the veggies in a bowl then take about 1/4 of the basil and pound it with a mortar and pestle, add a little salt until you have a paste. Add 6 to 8 Tbsp of oil and vinegar to the paste. Pour over veggies and toss, then throw in remaining basil leaves. Put in the chopped garlic and mix everything together. This recipe should serve about four people. A good summertime dish. Have a good weekend folks. Bye for now and Gooood Cooking

Once the excitement of an event wears off, Libra, you may be left floundering for a little while. Don’t wallow in boredom. Get started on a new project.

Sometimes much more can be said by remaining quiet that actually speaking, Scorpio. Keep this in mind when you are socializing with new people.

It can sometimes feel lonely at the top, Sagittarius. Now that you’ve acquired many of the things you wanted, the resulting feelings may not be what you thought.

Now may be the time to get serious about your efforts to find a new job, Capricorn. Start doing the legwork and get your name out to new people as much as you can.

Although you’re a do-it-yourself person by nature, Aquarius, sometimes letting someone get the job done frees you up for more important projects. You also get a needed break.

Pisces, you can’t seem to keep your mind on the thing at hand. Your wandering thoughts may put you in tune with a better idea.
