Little cheer for Woodland Drive residents in the new year Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Woodland Drive residents received a doubled whammy this week. Their assessed values have gone up, while their request for city services have been denied. Many of the City’s Woodland Drive residents likely received the bad news of their much anticipated application for water and sewer services along with everyone else - through local media outlets. At least that was the word on Monday as resident spokesperson and water services advo-

A new Westridge subdivision can be seen from Woodland Drive rising up Sunday afternoon. Westridge enjoys all the services the city has to offer while neighbouring Woodland Drive city residents have been denied city services. cate Martin Sills fielded calls for comment that the city denied the application December

13, after the federal and provincial funding they were hoping for to fund 75 per cent of the

$3 million project was turned down. Woodland residents were expected to

Tsi Deldel send loud and clear message Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor According to their newly elected Chief, the community of Tsi Deldel also know as the Alexis Creek Indian Band or Redstone is sending a loud and clear message about their stand on the controversial Prosperity mine project. Incumbent Chief Percy Guichon has said his people are against Taseko Mines and has maintained that position publicly, and with the majority of the voters re-electing him, Guichon said the message is loud and clear that the people want a Chief and Council who are going to pro-

water wells drying up and nearby Westridge residents complaining of the summertime smell of open sewage lagoons above. Residents have already voiced their additional concern that this year’s low winter precipitation could add to the already growing problem. For their part, the City had already dedicated more than $100,000 to design the potential services. Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook has said she does not speak to the issue, as she has declared the matter a conflict of interest due the fact she also lives on Woodland Drive. “We on Woodland have done due diligence in terms of trying to supply our own water, trying to conserve wherever possible,” Sills told the media.

tect their land. “I am extremely happy with the (election) results,” said Guichon. “I think the (election results) are a huge statement made by voting members. Guichon said is very grateful and honoured to have been re-elected and said he looks forward to working hard to serve the needs of the people over the next two years. Guichon received 134 votes over his opponent, Ervin Charleyboy’s 71. Charleyboy was the Chief of the community for 20 years until the last election and ran in this election after being out of poli-

tics for the first time in his life for many years. Recently Charleyboy stepped back into the political spotlight with his surprising support for Taseko Mines during the Williams Lake municipal election in November. Until Charleyboy’s public endorsement of the mine, Charleyboy said the people out west needed jobs and hope for the future, which he believed New Prosperity offers. The Tsilqhot'in National Government representing First Nation's communities out west including the Alexis Creek Indian Band has stood firmly opposed to the Fish

Lake project. TNG Chair Joe Alphone said he was pleased with the results of the election, but said he wasn’t surprised. “I think (the election results) are an indication of the Chilcotin nation is at with Prosperity,” said Alphonse. Guichon said he is now looking forward to working with the new council, which has four members returning along with two new members. Returning to council will be Terry Char, Rocky Guichon, Otis Guichon, and Clayton Charleyboy, and joining them will be newcomers Harold Corn and Gerald Williams.

voice their concern at last night’s city council meeting, which was scheduled for after The Advisor’s press time. Last year the request seemed hopeful as councillors empathized with the resident’s position; that they live in the city limits but do not have city services, a point made all the more serious in recent years with

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor After 20 years as a Registered Massage Therapist, Amber Cawston decided she needed a new career path and looked no further than her hobbies to start her own Australian-themed outdoor store. Reddog’s Horse and Rider Outfitters opened its doors this past November, but Cawston has been running an online version of it as well as attending trade shows for the past five years. “There were just life changes that kept me from traveling and going to trade shows, and I thought (opening the store) would be a fun thing to do.” The interest in the online store came after she had decided she needed a new career path and had fallen in love with Australian saddles. “It really intrigued

me on how a saddle gets put together – and I really wanted to know how they were made.” Her curiosity and passion for Australian saddles led her to take a one-on-one saddlemaking course in Australia six years ago. “I really enjoyed it, and it was really interesting and from there I have gone into other leather making– tack, purses and I am starting to get into clothing,” said Cawston. “I also do a lot of custom leather work, and that’s one of things I am able to do here. Cawston said she was the first women her instructor, Trevor James, has taught in the 40 years he had been teaching saddle making. “I was the first woman to take his course - saddle making is a very male dominant field, so for Australia especially it’s kind of a funny thing.”

After her saddle-making course, Cawston bought her online store, which was called Cariboo Outback Saddles and then opened her store. The name for the storefront came from another love in her life – her dogs, she has five Australian Sheperds. “It’s their sacrifice to not have me at home anymore – I have to look at their five sad faces when I drive down the driveway every day.” Cawson said her store has more of an emphasis on Australian clothing and riding equipment, and will likely expand into a little more English riding equipment as well. Cawston said it’s fun sharing her passion about Australian saddles with people who come in the store who are unfamiliar with them. “Australian saddles are different,” she said. “It’s been fun having them in town here, and having people come in and get familiarized with them a little more and feel how they differ from the Western and the English.” According to Cawston, the Australian saddles are a secure saddle and lightweight compared to the Western yet they are a working saddle. “I grew up in a western – but I just liked the look of (the Australian saddle) so I bought a used one and I really liked how comfortable

So far she says the response from people in town has been good, and that she picked a good time to open. “The feedback is good – people tell me it’s nice to see something different open in town.” Cawston also said

Scout Island set to host lecture series Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor As part of the Field Naturalist lecture series, Kris Andrews will be sharing her stories and photos from her hikes last summer at Nak Tessli and in the Flathead Watershed at the Scout Island Nature Centre Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m.. “It’s basically going to be a slideshow, “ said Andrews. “I am going to show a little bit of the plants and the views so people can see for themselves.” In July 2011, Andrews joined a few other ladies and participated in The Nuk Tessli Alpine Experience, located at the southern end of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. The Nuk Tessli is an alpine eco-adventure for naturalists and hikers, built and made famous by author Chris Czajkowski. “It was an interesting experience, we canoed for one day and hiked for three.” After her Nuk Tessli hike, Andrews came home and planned her next hiking trip into the Flathead Watershed. For four days at the beginning of September 2011, Andrews retraced her father’s 1930 survey route in the Flathead Watershed in the extreme southeastern corner of British Columbia. “It’s a marvelous area if you are a naturalist,” said Andrews. “Absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit.” Andrews is hoping that her few pictures from both areas of British Columbia will inspire local people to go and check it out for themselves.

New columnist to target health issues Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Driven by her training that a few simple changes can make a big difference in a person’s overall well-being, Rita Corbett will be sharing her expertise on the subject with a bi-monthly self-help column for the Cariboo Advisor starting today.  “It’s a new idea, but I’m looking forward to it,” says Corbett of her column Living OutLoud, who has lived and raised a family at Chimney Lake since 1992. “It’s an exciting new experience.” Corbett certainly has the credentials to back her philosophy. A nurse specialist from Loma Linda University in California, Corbett went on to complete a Master’s degree in Public Health, certificate courses in parenting and depression recovery and rounded out her impressive resume with a Ph.D. in Family Health in 2007. Drawn from her own personal experience of raising six children (four adopted) of mixed race and background with her Orthodontist husband, as well as her own childhood in Africa being raised by a flying missionary doctor and teacher mother, Corbett’s column promises to be full of thoughts and observations drawn from personal experience and backed by research. “For I thing, I would like to see more discussions about mental health in our local media,” says Corbett.

including an upcoming mission trip to India where Corbett is helping build a health education centre. “She (Chelsea) is the most nurturing person I know,” Corbett says of her daughter. As well as her newspaper column, Corbett is currently writing a commentary on parenting in today’s world, and preparing to offer a weight loss course in the fall for those who are seriously overweight. Corbett says she still receives guidance from

The Cariboo Advisor's newest columnist, Rita Corbett along with her youngest birth daughter Chelsea. “People can make such a difference in their lives with some very simple changes. We can easily help ourselves.”  Corbett’s topics of interest which she will be addressing in her column include parenting and public health issues as well as the four cornerstones to good heath: social, physical, and spiritual health and how it all relates to our mental health. “Most of it is lifestyle and it is all connected. If you are mentally healthy, you can make positive choices to affect all other aspects of your life.” Some of what Corbett plans to write about are foods and exercises to prevent depression, the positive side of grief, and how to make changes or aban-

don addictions; they are all topics Corbett regularly addresses as a local director of the program “Depression Recovery The Way Out.”   The program runs every second winter in Williams Lake and will run again next year.  “It’s about how to maximize your brain function to get the most out of life. I absolutely love teaching it and it saves lives, just with simple stuff.” Lessening depression by adding just one tiny food, and activities that enhance thyroid function  are just a few examples of Corbett’s style of informing to motivate.   Corbett also enjoys unearthing new findings on common interest topics, including family health and parenting,  having six

Food brings back memories of loved ones Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Ask anyone who knew my grandma and they’ll tell she makes the best cinnamon buns, , poppy seed square, buns, cucumber soup, perogies (both cheese and plum) and just about anything else she made. In the two and half years since she has passed away, a few of us grandkids have taken on trying out her recipes for ourselves – sure we may have helped as kids but now she ‘s not around to monitor our pinches, dashes and splashes or tell us when we’ve added enough flour (she always just knew don’t ask me how). Grandma was never big on actual measuring cups, but relied on her trusty ordinary teaspoon, and a cup

used for drinking out of as her ‘measuring’ tools. I remember as we got older, we started asking grandma for her recipes – some us wanted to be able to make our own grandma Sauder creations, and others left it to the best – grandma. Grandma never was good at relaying her recipes to us, she just knew how much four, or butter to add. An expertise that came from years and years of baking – at ten years old she was the one doing most of the baking in her house. Trips to Swift Current to see Grandma Sauder always revolved around food – we would be met with food whether we arrived in the middle of the afternoon or at midnight and every

meal was stuffed down out throats (never much complaining on our part other than tummies being full). This back-story of how food and grandma just go together leads me into the point of this article – this past weekend my sister and I took on a grandma recipe and the results were good. For some time my sister has been asking me if I wanted to help her make grandma perogies (anything grandma made has always been referred to as ‘grandma’s’) and on Friday we collected the ingredients we needed, made a phone call to a cousin for guidance, and rolled up our sleeves and dug in. We ended up with perogies that were just as delicious as we remembered – maybe

not as pretty as grandma’s but hey we’re just starting out and she had years of practice. What we once thought was complicated to make, we have know learned is simply eggs, salt, butter, and one and half to two (maybe more) cups of flour. Next on our list are grandma cinnamon buns, which to us is the ultimate in grandma food. All of us kids have a favorite of grandma’s dishes and treats and now as we get older its not just the great taste that we love but the memories we associate with that particular dish that mean the most to us. Grandma may be gone, but she lives on in us grandkids as we remember her each time we make and eat one her famous creations.

With the mild, spring-like weather lately its been mud and puddles to play in rather than snow. Grade three student Alexandro Brinoni found some mud and stick to play with on his lunch break yesterday at Nesika.

An opportunity for a beginning or a new ending? While recently click-clicking my way through a fog of postholiday news, (people, places, and things I can do nothing about!), I shunned reading the 10 best and worst New Year’s resolutions. Gritting my teeth wasn’t all that appealing. I was hungry for a few simple, healthy ideas that made sense and would last longer than my next binge or blood sugar dive. I need less than a million directions, but more than a momentary idea. I’ve started lots of things in Januaries - this time I wanted a new ending. I’d rather stew on ideas that alter where I am at the end of 2012 than just analyze my starting block. I need more than a Facebook or GPS location. I want to Mapquest myself into the future, absorbing great ideas and grabbing perspectives that crack my hide-bound viewpoints. I want to

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett believe the end of 2012 can be greater, healthier, more productive, happier, calmer and stronger than it’s beginning! Trying to find an easy approach to health, food, and fitness that will leave me happier, smarter, and still relaxed, is like seeking a parking place on a patch of ice. And, of course, breaking old habits and trying new ideas can be harder than walking across Williams Lake when it isn’t frozen. If I start with food, there is an entire alphabet of ‘diets’ - fat-burning, Kickstart, DASH, Weight Watchers, raw

food, Dukan, veggie, paleo, macro, Ornish, Jane Brody’s rice, glycemic index, ecoAtkins, Zone, South Beach, Medifast, TLC, Nutrisystem, Mayo Clinic, CHIP, Volumetrics, SlimFast, Jenny Craig, Mediterranean, Biggest Loser, and even abs and flat-belly diets! I could try a different one every day this year, but that might feel like a living in a pressure cooker! So, if one of those options doesn’t grab me, what about an approach that is low-fat, lowsodium, high-protein, or some other high-low benefit? Or perhaps I could eat just pro- or anti- foods? Antidiabetes, pro-vitamin, anti-cancer, etc. Do I have to eat an antieverything diet? Sorry - sounds too much like a food fight! Last evening I watched a digital image of DNA forming moment-by-moment

in a single human cell. Especially fascinating was how a strand of DNA repeatedly folded on itself to perfectly produce skin, stomach lining, or any other wondrous part of us. The way that chain folded was determined by the chemistry in it, and that chemistry comes almost entirely from what we eat - the food we have a lovehate relationship with. Sure, the food has to get to the cells (we’ll get to “Move it! Move it!”), but the health of our tissues can’t happen without it. Dr. Sang Lee, M.D. once told me “All cancer is genetic.” My flesh will be made healthfully or not, will be folded rightly or wrongly, based on what I eat. This chemistry masquerades as apples and squash, kale, almonds, black-eyed peas and other good stuff! I finally understood, while watching the DNA fold, that the

food I eat is my choice between health and disease. WOW! I could turn the most common instrument of suicide (the fork!) into a threetimes-a-day shovel of health! There is a category of food that can help us toward a peak ending in 2012. It offers better energy, mental clarity, and ecological integrity. It is anti- all the bad stuff, and pro- the good stuff. It contains the right types and amounts of proteins, sugars and fats, is naturally low in disease-producers, and automatically high in health-promoters. Such a category might be worth considering. An idea, turned over in our thinking, then chosen, can alter our future forever. Looking over some recent scribbling I’d done, I found an abbreviation I couldn’t decipher, so turned to a thesaurus to find what I had lost. Might I need

that thesaurus again to name the group of foods? OK, so the word starts with P, is a plural, and has 6 letters in it. Simply put, it’s a plus to eat plenty of _ _ _ _ _ _! It’s true – weight can normalize without starvation or dieting, disease risk plummet, energy levels rise, and wallets fatten; and the environment will thank you, even before the end of 2012. Column-writers don’t snoop in reader’s grocery carts, or refrigerators, (though people rarely look me in the eye in the store). They are too busy looking at my next week’s chemistry in the cart. But in my own eavesdropping, the health-word I have heard most this young year is “diet.” (I much prefer the word “EAT!) Can we eat our way to health? Kudos to TRU for showing the movie “Forks Over Knives”, and revealing that forks full of health can help us

skip the painful knives of fix-its. To have a healthy, happy, energetic year (and lots of them!), in my chomping I could just include lots of _ _ _ _ _ _ ! A cookbook to the first person emailing me that word at LOL@caribooadvisor.com. And feel free to request a pot-stirring health-related topic for another issue. Until then, a notquite-scientific, but thought-provoking website offers some fun… www.livingto100.com. Or nibble on new recipes from John Weiand’s favorite website: www. vegweb.com. Once on site, search with the _ _ _ _ _ _ that you have in your fridge, and ‘Voila!’ - welcome to easy, healthy, and delicious! All the best to you in 2012 and beyond. And when something doesn’t turn out quite right, LOL – Live OutLoud anyway!

“And now, the end is near and so I face‌â€? Grab your bottled water, some dried beef, veggies, oatmeal and candles, the world is coming to an end in December of this year... or maybe sooner. There are a lot of apocalyptic stories raging around the country this year. The end of the earth is going to happen sometime in 2012, if you believe some of the media hype, or those who have swallowed the ‘world is coming to an end’, pill. There will be an Asteroid crash into the earth and this will cause widespread destruction, along with much loss of life, this is just one of the many different doomsday scenarios. Actually the asteroid Eros apparent-

ly will pass within 17 million miles of earth, this month. There has been much speculation regarding the end of the civilization as we know it now... Some say we will all croak in some catastrophic manner this year however there will be a new humanity and new birth for the world, a new beginning. There

are lots of different Doomsday predictions for 2012. We cannot say these events will not happen until the time comes and then perhaps we might breathe a little sigh of relief because we didn’t all go to hell in a handbasket. The 90 year old head of a ministry in California has resigned as his predictions that the earth would end last May 21st were pretty preposterous, to say the least. Many had given away their life long possessions with the expectations of earths demise. If any of you are giving up your possessions please let me know, so I can build a giant ‘Share Shed’ and put this ‘stuff ’ away

for people who could use it. I think we should hold a dance and you would come wearing what you had on ‘when the lights went out’. I really thought when I got up on the first day of 2012 that it was going to be a good year, nothing really exciting except perhaps the amazing fact we will reach 7 billion people on earth by about October. Then the media blares out stories suggesting we are all going to ‘belly up’ by one catastrophic means or another. Sure ruined my day quickly! It did improve a few hours later when I thought of a great plan to help people here in North America. I would be glad to

As 2012 begins, the City of Williams Lake is looking forward to building on the successes of 2011. Among those successes the City is celebrating: Official Community Plan: Council adopted a new Official Community Plan (OCP) that will shape the development of the community for the next two decades. The new OCP provides City Council with guidelines that will enhance the environmental and economic sustainability of Williams Lake. Oliver Street paving:

take care of their stock market assets, before they left in the ‘Big Bang’...after all, there would be no sense trying to take 560-thousand dollars in BC Hydro shares with you into the great beyond. I can imagine the information about the destruction of planet earth might shock some people, but not those who have read, Revelation, in the Bible. There should be an age restriction on that passage... because of the gore. My predication is the media will really hype this apocalyptic stuff for 2012 as we come closer to the end of the year and again people with leaky brains will give it all away for redemption.

With winter here, the City of Williams Lake is reminding its residents of the importance of getting your garbage and recycling carts to the curb at 7:00 am on your collection day. Here are some friendly reminders to ensure your garbage collection service continues to be as smooth as possible.

FREE PUBLIC SKATE SUNDAY, JANUARY 15TH 1:00PM TO 2:30PM

• Winter snow and colder weather causes schedules to be delayed or need to be adjusted. These adjustments may cause your usual collection time to change from day to day. The only way to ensure your solid waste is collected on your day is to have your cart at the curb at 7:00am. • Putting your cart on the curb the night before only increases the risk of vandalism during the night and interferes with snow removal equipment.

• Remove your cart from the curb the same day it was collected to ensure your empty carts do not interfere with snow removal equipment.

Jackrabbits and Bunnyrabbits everywhere Fresh snow and lots of sunshine greeted skiers at Bull Mountain for the first session of the Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club’s developmental programs – the Jackrabbits. The Jackrabbits program offers three levels of instruction starting with the Bunnyrabbits, moving on to the Jackrabbits and finishing with Track Attack. “The focus of the program is for the kids to have fun, and to get outdoors in the winter,” said Erin Trott, the Youth Development Coordinator. “It’s a really good family orientated thing.” In Bunnyrabbits, which is for children up to age five, the main objective is to introduce cross-country skiing to the participants. From there, skiers move on to the Jackrabbits, which is for children six to nine, where participants are taught the fundamentals of cross-country skiing. They are taught both classic and skating, as well as hopefully establishing a lifelong interest in the sport. After graduating from the Jackrabbits, skiers then move on to Track Attack (children 10 to 12), which aims to help skiers become more technically advanced. The Track Attack program also provides opportunities to participate in backcountry trips and ski tournaments. This year, Trott said they have 25 kids registered in the program with most of them being in the Bunnyrabbitts. “We always hope the young kids grow into the other programs.” In addition to meeting every Sunday afternoon from 1 – 3 p.m., there are two optional nighttime sessions Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 7 p.m., since Bull Mountain has 30 km of lit up trails. “We try and make the evening sessions a pizza and ski night for the kids,” said Trott. “Its fun for the kids to ski under the lights.” The Skill Development Program has been in place in its current

format for about the last 10 years according to Trott, but she said she took lessons when she was young. “I’ve been cross country skiing for about 25 years, my mom started me young,’ said Trott. The Skill Development Program is always looking for more parent help, and coaches so they can continue offering the lessons and creating a life long interest in cross country skiing in the young skiers.

New club blazing new trails in quest for speed Courtney Taylor  Cariboo Advisor For little six yearold Adrien Scrooby, all he wants to do is skate fast and that’s exactly what the Williams Lake Speed Skating Club is allowing him to do. His mom Heleen said Adrian and his brother Warren, 9, haven’t shown an interest in playing hockey and were both inspired by watching the 2010 Winter Olympic Speeding Skating competitions. “I was on vacation

when I heard about the club, and was excited to hear that there was a speed skating club starting up in Williams Lake,� said Scrooby. The club is the product of the hard work of Yvonne Hauk, who like Scrooby, had a son who wasn’t interested in playing hockey. “We were looking for a different winter sport,� said Hauk. “Speed skating is a popular sport around the world and we thought it would be a good idea to bring it to Williams Lake.�

Hauk was overwhelmed with the amount of interested skaters, with 24 coming regularly to practices since they started in October, and three more trying it out at the first practice of the New Year with the new skates. “I expected that we wouldn’t get enough interested kids to get the club started, but I was surprised at how much interest there was.� Hauk said Doug Hill is coaching the nineto-12-year-olds along with Darcy Henderson, Tania Lauren is coaching the four-to-six-yearolds, and Hauk along with experienced speed skater Olga Slavik are coaching the children aged seven to eight. “At 24 skaters on the ice, we are at the max we can handle,� said Hauk.  Last Wednesday, the group laced up in

pairs donated from Fort. St. James,� said Hauk. “They were old skates they were getting rid of that we were more than willing to take.� Carson Springer, 11, was a new skater when he joined the club back in October

and according to Hauk and his mom he has been steadily improving each week. Hauk said with the new speed skates he has improved immensely. “There’s a huge difference between his first day on the ice to now,� said Dianne Springer, Carson’s mom. “It’s built up his confidence for sure.� Springer said he was also interested in speed skating after watching it during the Winter Olympics last year like the Scroobys, and said so far he really enjoys it.

Hauk said there is a huge emphasis on personal improvement rather than judging against the group. “Once a month we hold mini-meets, so the kids can try and improve on their own times,� said Hauk. “We really encourage personal improvement – and for them to set goals.� The club will run for 10 sessions each Wednesday from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. at a cost of $75.00 per skater.

Make a lasting change for 2012 (NC)—Every January, Canadians across the country kick-off their annual New Year's resolution ritual. 'Time for a new beginning' messages are splashed everywhere we look, yet despite all the hype, most of us have difficulty staying on track. By the time gloomy February rolls around, the majority of our resolutions have long been forgotten. This year stick to your resolution with these three simple, but effective tips. First, examine your motivation for change. Do you want to get in better shape so that you can have more energy for your family or perform better at work? It's important to understand why you're working towards a goal to stay motivated. Second, focus on changing your behaviour, rather than the goal itself. For example, if your goal is to lose ten pounds, try not to stare at the scale each day, but rather focus on changing your eating and exercise habits. Try keeping pre-sliced fresh fruits in your fridge for an easy snack, and keep a portable Duracell Instant Charger in your bag to ensure you are never stuck at the gym with an uncharged mp3 player or phone. Having the proper tools will help set you up for success. Last but not least, make tasks non-negotiable. If your plan is to wake-up and exercise first thing in the morning, stick to the plan. Don't make excuses for yourself. On the odd occasion when you slip, it is important not to abandon your resolution, but pick yourself up and move on.

Some tips for first timers to the gym This time of year is a very popular time for gyms and new memberships. January always sees an influx of people paying for their sixmonth memberships, buying themselves some new exercise outfits, and then sitting on their butts at home. Sure, when the resolution or goal was made an hour at the gym a few times a week sounded easy, but before you waste your money on a gym membership you won’t use, why don’t you read these tips on how to make your time at the gym productive, enjoyable, and injury free. Maybe if you know what your getting into before you start will help you keep those goals of getting active instead of your gym time becoming just another phase in your life. WARM UP FIRST: This is very important to not only get your blood flowing but to minimize the risk of injury. some good warm up methods include walking on the tread-

mill for 10-15 minutes starting out at a slower pace then working up to a more brisk pace halfway through. Perform 10 minutes or so of stretching exercises such as toe touches, hurdlers stretches, twisting at the waist and reaching your arms out fully in every direction. before you do any exercises that involve using weights (biceps curls for example) do one set with half (50%) of the weight you'll be using to prepare the muscles, tendons and ligaments performing the exercise to better handle the heavier weight. START OUT EASY: When you first get to the gym and you are ready to hit the weights, select an amount of weight at first that seems almost too light but still provides some resistance for each exercise. Remember that proper form, posture and technique are far more important than how much weight you are using. Also, you must give your connective tissue (tendons

and ligaments) time to strengthen in order to help prevent injury from the heavier weights you'll be using later. You can always increase the weight as you go when you can do so without compromising proper form, posture and technique. When you first get on the treadmill, stationary bike, stair climber or elliptical machine, remember that your heart probably isn't going to be in the kind of shape to go all out and for this reason you should take it at a slower pace for a while. Each week, pick up the pace and the length of time spent on these machines a little at a time. This will give your heart time to build up to faster paces and longer periods. Remember, your heart is a muscle and like any other muscle, it needs time to adjust to the stresses placed on it during exercise. KEEP AN EXERCISE LOG: One of the best ways to monitor your workouts as well as your

progress is to write out your exercise program, stick to it and write in the weights you use for each exercise, and when you're ready to increase the weight on any exercise, write it in. On the treadmill or any other cardiovascular machine, write in your speeds and length of time spent. when your ready to make increases, write them in. in this way you not only are able to stay on a structured program ( which is far more productive that having no system ) but you can also keep track of the progress you are making and see how much progress you have made since you began. When you see that you're making good progress as you go, you will become more motivated to stick with it. COOL DOWN: After you've completed your workout, take 10 minutes at a slow pace on the treadmill. This will let your body cool down a little slower and a slower cool down is easier on your heart than if you cooled

down quickly. During this time, you can reflect on the workout you just performed and feel the sense of well being that exercise gives you. Now that you know a few things that will

help to make your gym experience a more productive, more enjoyable and more injury free one, you are ready to go and start working on getting the body of your dreams, the right way.

Stress management seminar to be held in Williams Lake Cameron Johson Is your life out of balance and overwhelming? Do you need to feel more relaxed, peaceful and energized? Powerful stress management solutions will be mastered at a seminar entitled, Cooling Down The Stress Soup, coming to Williams Lake, Wednesday, January 18, 7-9 PM. This unique and high-impact stress management seminar will be conducted by author and international speaker Cameron Johnston. The seminar will be held at the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre at 26 Woodland Dr. The cost is only a materials fee of $15 per person or only $10 per person when part of a group of two or more from the same family, business or organization. Full info online at: www.silverhillsontheroad.com/ stresscariboo Tens of thousands of participants across

Cameron Johson Canada, the USA and Australia have already benefited from this compelling, effective and fun stress management seminar. It teaches you how to live it up without burning out. Using the analogy of cooling down hot soup, participants master 8 practical and effective ways to manage stress effectively and prosper in our 24/7 world. The seminar is designed to help anyone struggling with the pressures of modern life and needing practical solutions on how to cope effectively.

“Stress is a normal and enjoyable part of life,” says Cameron Johnston, the seminar presenter and co-director of Adventist Health Williams Lake. “But unresolved, prolonged stress can become a killer. The latest research indicates that stress is a catalyst in many of the most dramatic killers of our day including heart disease and cancer.” “ Un d e r s t a n d i n g and appreciating the joys of stress while learning stress management skills is essential

today,” he continues. “Helping individuals develop effective stress hardiness techniques while improving coping reserves is the primary objective of this seminar. Participants will evaluate their stress, identify sources of destructive stress, and develop a personal success plan to control stress.” A special feature of this seminar is a segment on burnout, “What If. . . You already ate the soup too hot!?” A demanding job, too

many responsibilities, challenging family relationships and the fast pace of modern life leaves many exhausted and joyless. Add inadequate coping techniques to this cycle of chronic tension and anxiety and few can live for long without serious physical and mental breakdown. This stress management seminar can help you break that dangerous cycle and improve your resilience and stress hardiness. Recent participant

comments include, “Casual and calm presentation, made me feel relaxed. Enjoyed the humour and had my attention right to the end. I came away feeling confident, calm and positive.” J. Lindsay, QLD, Australia. “You clarified a stress management plan for me that will work, thanks.” A. Mckay, Perth, Australia. Plan now to take advantage of this seminar on Wednesday, January 18, 7-9 PM at

the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre, 26 Woodland Dr. The cost is only a materials fee of $15 per person or only $10 per person when part of a group of two from the same family, business or organization. To Register Call 250-3989188 or Email: adventisthealthwl@gmail. com Everyone is welcome. Full info on the web at: www.silverhillsontheroad.com/stresscariboo This seminar is sponsored by Adventist Health Williams Lake and VOAR Radio.

Property assessment rise does not mean automatic increase As they receive their 2012 assessment notices this week, the City of Williams Lake would like to remind Williams Lake property owners that an increased assessment does not mean an automatic rise in City property taxes. According to BC Assessment, the City of Williams Lake’s assess-

ment roll rose from $1.22 billion to 1.24 billion, and most homeowners in Williams Lake will see property value changes from -5 per cent to 5 per cent. Because the City of Williams Lake, like all municipal governments, sets its residential mill rate based on budget needs, an increase in

property values does not necessarily mean a rise in the mill rate. “The mill rates for residential, commercial, and industrial properties will be set this spring as the City goes through the process of completing the 2012 budget and five-year financial plan,” says Director of Finance Pat Higgins.

“Increased property values are just one factor among many that determine how much a property owner will pay in taxes.” “The City believes competitive tax rates are critical in helping to foster a positive environment for economic development and growth,” says Councillor

Geoff Bourdon, chair of the General Governance Committee, which has oversight of budgets and long-term financial planning. “Economic development is a top priority for this Council, and that will be reflected in our budget and long-term tax rates discussions this winter and spring.”

50/50 Adam Lerner (Joseph GordonLevitt) has a pretty great life--with a talented, sexy artist girlfriend and a great job, the 27-year-old seems to have it all. But when Adam begins to suffer with agonizing back pain, he discovers that he has a rare and possibly fatal form of cancer. With a massive, malignant tumor growing along his spinal column, his life changes in a heartbeat. Coffee shops give way to chemotherapy clinics, art openings to counseling sessions and plans for the future to strategies for survival. His best friend, Kyle (Seth Rogen), uses Adam’s condition to lure girls into sympathy sex, his overbearing mother (Anjelica Huston) loses sight of him in her own fears, his otherwise-occupied girlfriend, Rachael (Bryce Dallas Howard) tries to distract herself an increasingly frantic social life

A not so new use for popcorn

Over the years I have received many recipes from folks who have listened to my old cooking show on Radio or read my column in Newspapers, both under the banner of Ken’s Country Kitchen. I also talk to lots of people in the community about recipes, cooking and taste. So when a friend phoned the other day to talk about the state of affairs in our economy, he really floored me right toward the end of our conversation when he told me he had a real great chicken recipe. This really stunned me because I had hardly ever talked to Torry Kier about cook-

ing, unless he is jokingly asking me to make lunch and bring it up for he and his staff while they are busy at Tax time. I talk to Pat and Jo’ about recipes and cooking, but never Torry. He asked if I wanted him to send it over, I said yes please because I really couldn’t wait to

find what kind of chicken recipe he had for me. He said he would send it by mail. That further heightened my curiosity because I would have thought he would just fire it up on the computer and send it by e-mail. No he said when I asked him, it was to come via Canada post. So when I received the letter from Torry, I rapidly opened it with a little excitement and out came a one page sheet of paper that looked like it could be an authentic recipe. Sure enough it was, and a chicken recipe to boot. I quickly looked at it to check the ingredients and it seemed somewhat reasonable at

a cursory glance. When I looked at the method of using the foods, I started laughing because I knew I had been ‘had’. This was the old chicken recipe that urges people to put popcorn in the orifice of the bird so you will know when it is done because the kernels will explode and blow off the back-end nose of the bird. This one has been around for a long time ... Good one Torry, you got me good. Torry is a big time fund raiser for Big Brothers and Sisters in Williams Lake and area, having brought in more than 100 thousand dollars over the years. He is a great community guy,

Later in the week your boss will pat you on the back for a job well done. Shopping could cost more than you bargained for. You need to get out and be an observer. Be sure to keep communication open with those you live with. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday.

even if he can’t cook. Well maybe he does breakfast twice a year. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

Looking SOMETHING SPECIAL? for

Weigh the pros and cons and make a decision that will change the conditions you’ve been living under. Emotional matters may not be easy for you to handle. Try not to argue about trivial matters. Pleasure trips should be on your agenda. Your lucky day this week will be Monday. Your tendency to dramatize may be a little much for your partner to take constantly. Catch up on correspondence. Don’t let others bully you into agreeing with them. Don’t hesitate to come right out and ask for the pertinent information. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

You may have difficulties at an emotional level with mates. You may have a problem at work with a female coworker. Your high energy and discipline will enable you to complete any seemingly insurmountable tasks. Cutbacks at work will be a cause for worry. Your lucky day this week will be Monday.

Pleasure trips will be most enjoyable if you take them with that special person in your life. You should feel a little more stable about your position; however, don’t be surprised if a job offer comes your way. Don’t let others make you feel guilty or insecure. You should look into a healthier diet. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday. Don’t use the interstate as a racetrack. Changes in your domestic scene are apparent. Make residential changes that will lift your spirits. You need some rest. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday.
