Mary McNeil Minister of Children and Family Development, made the exciting annoucment of an extra $200,000 in funding coming to the Cariboo Memorial Hospital to help with emergency care. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett, Dr. Glenn Fedor, President of Medical Staff, Rosanne McGregor, member of the Board of Director for Interior Health, Minsters Ida Chong, Pat Bell and Steve Thompson were all present at the press conference yesterday afternoon.

Hospital ER gets provincial cash injection Courtney Taylor  Cariboo Advisor Cariboo Memorial Hospital was the backdrop for a government funding announcement of$200,000 yesterday that will help provide a more robust and sustainable 24/7call coverage in the Emergency Room. On behalf of Heath Minster Michael de Jong, Minster of Children and Family

Development, Mary McNeil made the exciting announcement. “It’s very clear to us and we are fully aware of the challenges in recruiting and retaining physicians in rural communities,” said McNeil. “And it’s so important for our families in British Columbia – so this extra financial assistance provid-

ed by the province is going to help address these challenges by helping rural doctors fully cover their local hospital emergency department.” Dr. Glenn Fedor, who is the president of the medical staff at CMH stated the benefits of working in rural B.C but also noted the challenges, which revolve around staffing and he said

this extra funding will help immensely to provide incentive to keep doctors fulltime in emergency. “Years ago I recognized the benefits of practicing in rural area,” said Dr. Glenn Fedor, President of Medical Staff. “I moved here and became part of the community.” He said the extra funding will be used

to add a second oncall position to support the day shifts, as well as funds will be available as increased incentive for overnight coverage for all ER physicians and funds will be dedicated to supporting those who are responsible for the very important job of scheduling ER coverage. The province, in collaboration with

the B.C. Medical Association, put together a program to support physicians and health authorities. The Province announced $10M in July, 2011 to provide financial assistance for rural physicians who commit to ensure reliable public access is maintained at their local hospital and this announcement is a follow up on that commitment.

The provincial government announced $3.4 million in funding Tuesday for the early childhood program Success by 6, with $30,000 of that earmarked for Williams Lake. Marie Sharpe Elementary School was the site of the announcement with children taking time out of class to attend. Pictured are Principal Elaine Elliot, United Way's Francy Hayward, MLA Donna Barnett, WL and District Credit Union Arla Driver, Marie Sharpe kindergarten teacher Tanya Isnardy, (front left to right)  Kaden Craig,  Jessica Kelly,  Kaiden Marcoux,  Emily La Rose, Aidan Wycotte, Minister Mary McNeil and Avery Toney.

Success by 6 gets funding Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Marie Sharpe Elementary school was the site of a government funding announcement yesterday which will see $30,000 in new monies made available through the program Success by 6 in Williams Lake next year. Mary McNeil, Minister of Children and Family Development was on hand to share the good news with the local media along with representatives from United

Way and the Williams Lake and District Credit Union. Together the three form the core partnership in the early childhood development program. “Investing in our children is the most important investment we can make,” said McNeil. “Success by 6 is a fantastic community-based partnership devoted to encouraging young children to learn, play and grow - with their peers and with their families.” All told, the minis-

try is dishing out $3.4 million across the province for the program, the goal of which is to ensure children from birth to age six develop the emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills they need as they enter school. Last year, Marie Sharpe’s kindergarten teacher Tanya Isnardy applied for and received funding from the program to purchase two Ipads and apps to assist two autistic children in communicating and

learning. Isnardy said it was wonderful to see everyone coming together to help children. “Partnership is everything for schools and learning,” she said. School principal Elaine Elliot agreed and said she felt honoured to be able to thank Minister McNeil in person for the support. She said the school also receives much-needed funding by Success by 6 for their in-school mentoring program.

Brian Kynoch, President and CEO of Imperial Metals Corporation, and Cheif Anne Louie of the Williams Lake Indian Band sign an historic participation agreement Feb. 6 at the WLIB community hall.

WLIB and Polley make peace Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor It was a special day Monday as a historic agreement was signed between the Williams Lake Indian Band and Imperial Metals. Chief Anne Louie and Brian Kynoch signed a Participation Agreement on Monday afternoon which will solidify a working relationship between the band and Mt. Polley Mine. Local dignitaries as well provincial cabinet ministers and Williams Lake Indian Band councilors and representatives from Imperial Metals and Mt. Polley attended

the signing ceremony. The Participation Agreement addresses a number of topics, from education and training, employment and contracting, to environmental management. “It’s a special day for the Williams Lake Indian band, we have finally reached an agreement with Mt. Polley Mining Corporation,” said Chief Anne Louie. “It shows that First Nations are not opposed to economic development, but want to be included.” “You’ve set an example for others to follow,” said Mayor Kerry Cook. “A positive example of

finding that balance.” Mayor Cook was not alone in her opinion that the WLIB and Mt. Polley were setting an example for the rest of the province as Minister Pat Bell had the same opinion. “It’s an example the rest of the Province and other mining corporations can look at and really take it to heart,” said Minster of Jobs, Tourism, and Innovation Pat Bell. “For me that’s the way the future is going – for company’s working directly with First Nations to come up with their own agreements.”

Three city elementary schools are on the upward trend according to the Fraser Institute’s annual School Report Cards released Monday. Based on the province’s 2010/2011 Foundation Skills Assessment tests, Mountview, Nesika and Cataline have all made significant rating increases, according to the study. Leading the pack overall for Williams Lake area school’s is Chilcotin Road Elementary at 7.7, followed by Mountview Elementary which jumped from 6.1 in the last five years to 7 this year, then Kwaleen Traditional Elementary at 6.6, 150 Mile House improved from 5.0 to 6.5 this year, Cataline improved from 3.5 in recent years to 5.3 and Nesika Elementary improved from 4.3 to 5.0. Marie Sharpe placed 854 out of the province’s 860 schools with a rating of 1.2.

high degree of confidence in the studies is important in addressing population conservation, hunting regulation and allocations, Stewart said. He said the studies are conducted by first having an airplane and its crew fly in a four by four kilometer grid pattern while documenting moose sightings and categorizing those blocks into ratings of high, moderate, low or nil densities. After that, a helicopter and crew is brought in to re-count randomly selected blocks within the grid, counting and classifying every moose that is sighted. Stewart said the final analysis compares the results with any previous surveys, identify trends, population statistics such as ratios of cows to calves and cows

to bulls. "It will tell us what we are dealing with," Stewart said. "It gives us some sense of the size and health of the population." Stewart said recent suggestions that moose numbers are low are purely "anecdotal" at this point. The latest study results won't be completed until early summer, however if they find problems in the populations, they will adjust the allowable harvest, allocations and hunting regulations. Lately, theTsilhqot'in National Government has been calling for a ban on moose hunting due to what they believe are low numbers. Another interesting and important study currently being worked on is a population and habitat selection project

Schools of Choice approaching

Deadlines for School of Choice applications for School District 27 are fast approaching. Feb. 15 is the School of Choice deadline for high schools, while March 15 is the deadline for elementary schools. School District 27 encourages students to go to their catchment school, however it is ultimately up to parents to decide where their children attend school. That could be the motivation of Williams Lake Senior Secondary, which has run ads in a local paper advertising its students, programs and teachers. Currently Williams Lake’s three elementary schools of choice are; Kwaleen Traditional Elementary and two programs at Glendale Elementary, the year-round calendar and the french immersion programs. At last week’s board meeting, trustees heard that enrollment in the district has dropped by more than double what was projected, with the loss of an estimated 165 students.

on the herd of Northern Caribou in the Itcha Ilgatchuz mountain ranges. The herd was once considered the largest in southern B.C., however are currently considered a species of concern and many suspect their population numbers are trending down. "It's time (to do the study), we're concerned about the population trends," said Stewart. "It's important work. First Nations are deeply interested in what's going on with the population, and have concerns respecting its conservation." The research is currently underway and at its end will see 60 caribou from the estimated herd of 2,000 caribou fitted with specialised telemetry collars which will track what habitats the animals use at different times of the year. The collars last about three years and utilize satellite and VHF radio technology. The study is being jointly funded by the forest sector, government, the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund and an environmental group. There is still a restricted hunt on the herd; with about 25 bulls taken each fall by resident hunters, about 30 by First Nations and 12 by guided hunters. Stewart stated that the annual allowable harvest of caribou and the hunting regulations will be revisited if population numbers are proven to be declining.

DRY: Grad

Low volunteer numbers jeopardize safe celebration Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor For more than twenty years, parents, friends, family and community members have worked to put on Dry Grad for the graduating class in order to keep Williams Lake teens safer. “Our main goal is to keep the kid’s safe,” said Betty Turatus, the Chair of the Dry Grad Committee this year. “I was personally affected the year I graduated and for the last eight years have been involved in planning the evening to make sure the kids are safe.” Turatus said it’s not just about raising money, but about getting people in the community to volunteer their time the night of grad. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a graduating class of 300 or 700 – we still need 300 volunteers that night,” said Turatus. Turatus did say at this point Dry Grad could be drastically reduced if more volunteers are not found, and she said

every volunteer needs to have a criminal record check done which needs to be done by March 9. “Everyone who volunteers during ‘lockdown,’ which is 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. needs to have a criminal record check,” said Turatus. “They can be picked up at both high schools and TRU, but need to be dropped of at the Williams Lake RCMP detachment.” Turatus said the two big committees that are still low on volunteers is the food committee who only has about five members but needs closer to 30 and the security committee who has around 20 volunteers but needs closer to 70. “We are having a general meeting on Feb. 29 at 7 p.m. in the TRU cafeteria for anyone who may be interested in volunteering,” said Turatus. She said people need to realize it’s our children who are graduating – though they may not be our children literally but they may be a

neighbour, an employee, a niece or nephew and we need to keep them safe. “We need people – both student’s parents whether it be Grade 12 or Grade 11’s and the community to step forward and help,” said Turatus. Upcoming fundraising events for Dry Grad include a table at a Ladies Night Open House at Chilcotin Road on Feb. 17 where they hope to sell Save-On more gift cards, chocolates and coffee, they will be manning the concession at the Men’s basketball tournament Feb. 25 and 26, they will have DeVry plants for sale in the spring, and will be having a Mother’s Day flee market in the SaveOn parking lots. On top of these upcoming things that are on their

fundraising wish list, the grads are currently selling Purdy’s Chocolates. Also Turatus reminds everyone that they can donate their Save-On

More points to Dry Grad as well as they do have an account at Amanda Enterprises. To find out more about upcoming fundraisers and when all

the meetings are there is a new option this year for those interested with the dry grad website, which can be found at www.wldrygrad,ca.

Head down to the mall This Friday, members of the Cariboo White Cane Chapter are hosting an event in the mall for National White Cane Week Feb. 5 to 11. If you feel like being inspired, take some time out of your day to head down and meet the incredible folks of the CWCC. Members of this local chapter have worked hard in the weeks’ past in hopes of raising awareness about the challenges of being blind or visually impaired in the lakecity and also the support that is here. Have you ever thought about how you may feel never knowing how you look to the rest of the world?  Am I wearing clothes that match? What does my hair look like? How is my make-up? Acts of independence

like driving a car are no longer an option and cooking is a potential health hazard for those with blindness or visual impairment. That being said, people with visual impairment also have many abilities. Like local member Ardis Bennett, who spends hours on the phone listening to friends and family and who inspires many around her with her no fuss attitude.  Then there is Colin Rolston, another local member who battled through a major health crisis and the losses brought on by blindness to come out the other side, whole again and happy with his service dog Tex. Ed and Doreen Evenzki, married 62 years and currently cochairs of CWCC, are also an inspiration. The

two started the local chapter here and work hard to ensure their members are supported and given all the latest information they need on technologies and medical advances. On Friday, at 11 a.m. and again at 1 p.m., a trainer and puppy in training from B.C. Guide Dogs Autism Support Dogs will be on hand in the mall for presentations. Suppliers of the latest in assistive devices and aids such as Internet navigational programs with voice will be on hand demonstrating new technologies which help blind and visually impaired people lead an independent lifestyle. Cariboo Eye Care Clinic will have an information table set up and members of the Order of the Eastern Star, who were instru-

mental in bringing in the trainer and puppy, will also be at the event serving coffee, tea and goodies with the Lioness Club. The new regional manager of the Canadian National Institute of the Blind will also be available to provide information and demonstrations of assistive devices. CWCC member Colin Rolston and his four-pound Papillion service dog Tex will also be at the event to talk about the many advantages of having a service dog. CNIB members from Anahim Lake, to Horsefly and Likely to Quesnel and 100 Mile House and everywhere in between are expected to take in the event. For more information, give Doreen a call at 250-392-5706.

The air out there is frightful Let’s talk about the big white elephant hanging around the city these days. I’ll give you a hint. It’s bluish white in colour, it hangs everywhere and no one talks about. Give up? I am talking about the embarrassing and shameful amount of air pollution this city is generating. Ya, ya, I know the weather creates an

inversion and holds it in the valley this time of year blah, blah, blah. Let’s be honest, whether that pollution stays in town where it will surely take years off all our lives or blows away to someone else’s part of the world, it’s just plain wrong. Why did we get rid of the bee hive burners if we were just going to substitute the problem

with a different type of fine particulate? I wonder what the air testing monitors are reading these days at the Skyline school site? Oh that’s right, that air quality monitoring station was taken down and not put up again after the fire hall was built. Too bad, because that site always had the highest readings. According to the province’s air qual-

ity health index for Williams Lake, we’ve been enjoying a level “2” air quality health index all week, meaning our air quality is posing a “low health risk.” I’ll let you be the judge of that. Our air pollution is ugly, it’s harmful and it should be outlawed. I’d shout that out to the mountain tops... if my lungs weren’t so full of smog.

Love me, love me not, but do you like me? Long ago, as the daisy petals piled up on the table, I thought, “What if he doesn’t love me - only likes me?” Liking someone can turn into a business venture, and shared hobbies may flower into permanent associations. But which is better - like or love? Starting with the word ‘love,’ terms such as unconditional, forgiving and devoted come to mind. Great stuff - my mother was all of those! I love being loved! But it hit me, like an arrow to the heart - being loved

loved - at least by my mother! I could be awful (and sometimes I was!) and still be loved. Love may have little or nothing to do with the recipient. It is the character of the lover on display - the very inside of the person who loves, showing on the outside. Love is on display when a Rwandan woman takes food to her husband’s killer in jail; true love is revealed when a soldier’s wife makes certain her husband’s mistress and child in a far-off land are fed,

clothed, and sheltered. Love is never a victim, always a positive perpetrator. It is the ultimate hero, regardless of circumstances - like it or not! So is ‘like’ simply a lesser degree of love? The word is often used that way - “I like bananas, but I love strawberries!” That’s fine for dresses, ties, foods, or books, but what about people? If I like you, it’s because I enjoy your personality, or perhaps because the same ideas energize us. ‘Like’ has something to do with

the attributes of the person being appreciated. Like means there are things someone is or does that are pleasing. I may like you because you have courage, wisdom, silliness, or because you like burgers with onions, too. We each need to be loved to feel whole, valued and positive. Couldn’t live without it… but at this love-strewn time of year, maybe I should consider if I am liked, even more than if I am loved. Frankly, I’d rather

be liked than loved! If I’m loved, it may only mean that the person who loves me is wonderful! If I’m liked it means that something about me is agreeable. Love is the greatest of gifts, but ‘like’ is the highest compliment. As we approach Valentine’s Day, instead of wondering how much others love me, perhaps I could determine to be more likable. That would be a treat - especially for those who love me! If you receive a Valentine’s card from me next week that says,

“I love you,” consider yourself hugged. But if you receive one that says, “I like you,” perhaps that would mean even more than the old daisy petals. Love me… love me not? In this month of love, I don’t want to be more loved - I want to be more likeable! Please email LOL@ caribooadvisor.com the trait you find most likeable in others. Results will be shared with readers in a future column. The 14th respondent will receive something to love… or at least like!

Workshops held at local Sikh temples

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Thanks to the persistence of Councilor Surinderpal Rather, the local Sikh temples were able to offer their congregation members healthy living workshops taught in their own language. The Ministry of Heath funded the program and Jay Bains facilitated the workshops in Williams Lake.   Bains is the Provincial Coordinator for the South Asian Chronic Disease SelfManagement Program at the University of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre on Aging. Due to higher percentage of East-Indians having diabetes and other chronic health diseases, Rather said he felt it was imperative these workshops be brought to Williams Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Jay) really cooperated to come down and speak to the local leadership and strategize the whole (program),â&#x20AC;? said Rather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interest was

huge (in the local EastIndian community) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we had 37 registered for the workshops.â&#x20AC;? On Friday afternoon, MLA Donna Barnett attended a special workshop that was put on about diabetes in the Sikh temple on Mackenzie Ave, while there were also other workshops held earlier in the week at the Western Singh Sabha Temple on Pine Avenue.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is so important to have this type of course so that people of their own culture can teach their people how to be healthy in all aspects of life,â&#x20AC;? said Barnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am here on behalf on the Minster of Health â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we are very pleased to be able to provide this type of program.â&#x20AC;? These were the first healthy living workshops to be held in Williams Lake taught in Punjabi as well as English. Rather hopes the teachings will help the East-Indian community be healthier now and in the future.

Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is a good start Valentine Day is next week and while this day of love is a special day, it has grown to encompass not just those in love, but friends and acquaintances. Next to Christmas, it is the largest cardgiving occasion of the year, most of them sent by women. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be great if days like these could be celebrated throughout the year. Yes it would be nice if we could be nice, or nicer to more people every day.

Celebrate BC Heritage Week Feb 2-26 The City of Williams Lake Heritage Advisory Committee invites all residents to celebrate our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage from Feb. 20-26, BC Heritage Week. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heritage Committee members have organized a series of tours in historic buildings in conjunction with local businesses and institutions in the downtown.   Tours will be run at the scheduled

Contemplating Ken with Ken Wilson

We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to love someone to do something special at Valentine or Christmas day or any day of the year. We can do pleasant things for an old or

casual friend or somebody we have just met and it certainly does not have to be an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;occasionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; day to make that phone call, or to call around, just to say hi. So, if everyday we took just a little extra time, maybe just ten minutes or so, to do something friendly for somebody else, like your wife, your brother, dad, or your dear old granny, or a new friend, it would indeed be appreciated and at some time the gesture would probably be reciprocal.

PULL OVER FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLES

Recent incidents involving emergency vehicles have prompted the Williams Lake Fire Department to remind residents to pull over when an emergency vehicle is approaching with lights and siren on.

Starting February 14th

The British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act, Section 177, states: “On the immediate approach of an emergency vehicle giving an audible signal by bell, siren or exhaust whistle, and showing a visible ashing red light, except when otherwise directed by a peace ofcer, a driver must yield the right of way, and immediately drive to a position parallel to and as close as possible to the nearest edge or curb of the roadway, clear of an intersection, and stop and remain in that position until the emergency vehicle has passed.” Here’s how to help: • Signal, pull over to the nearest edge of the road on the approach of an emergency vehicle and stop • If at an intersection, move out of the intersection if it is safe to do so, and then stop at the edge of the road until the emergency vehicle has passed • Check for additional emergency vehicles before pulling back out onto the roadway • Use your rearview mirror(s) frequently to monitor for emergency vehicles approaching from the rear • You may see an emergency vehicle before you hear it. Be attentive to the ashing lights. It will give you more time to select a safe place to pull over

TRU Grit dreams big for local university Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor When people think of Williams Lake they don’t necessarily think ‘University town,’ but that’s exactly what the goals and aspirations are for a local group who call themselves TRU Grit. TRU Grit is a group of about 20 local community members who want to see Thompson River’s University- North bloom into the best university it can be and attract students from all over the world. “I was surprised to learn how many people didn’t know Williams

Lake had a university or if they did know they didn’t know where is was,” said Brian Garland, founding member of TRU Grit. “We want to re-awaken the university scene in Williams Lake and make this university the best it can be.” Garland said TRU in Kamloops is the number one employer in Kamloops and that is an exciting target for TRU-North and he said with Dr. Ray Sanders heading up the university TRU has more of a future than it had before. “Just because we are a small town doesn’t mean we can’t have

a good-sized university,” said Garland. “It helps economically as well as brings an environment to the city only a university can.” TRU Grit members, Betty Turatus and David Hall announced a Gala that is going to take place at the end of March. The Gala is the group’s first big fundraiser.  “(The Gala) is the first visible activity that we have put together,” said Garland.  Hall said the group hopes to raise in excess of $25,000 that will be put towards bursaries for student to come to TRU-North. The group’s direction REPAIRS and plans for TRU-North are varied – they want to increase the enrollment of students locally, provincially, nationally and even internationally and in doing so want to increase the programs offered at the TRU-North location as well as make it

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor When cleaning out clutter from our houses or after a yard sale is done, many of us think of the Salvation Army or the landfill as places for the leftovers to go. But another idea for any soft, still-useful item is the Williams Lake Big Brothers and Big Sisters’ purple bins. The Williams Lake Big Brothers and Big Sisters have had their purple bins out in the community for over five years now, and recently have doubled the number of bins available to six. “We really want people to know how important these bins are to the actual mentoring programs,” said Lorraine Levitt, Executive Director for BBBS Williams Lake. “One hundred per cent of the money raised through the bins stays right in Williams Lake.” The way the purple bin project works is through a partnership with the BBBS organization in Kamloops along with the Value Village there. Levitt says the bins are meant for soft items, which includes clothing, linens, shoes, purses, and stuffed animals. “The bins were located at Safeway, Canadian Tire and the Share Shed and now three more have been added - one more at Safeway and Canadian Tire and now one at Surplus Herby’s,” said Levitt. “The more donations we receive through the bins – the more

Here new BBBS board of directors member Sam Numsen donates some soft goods into one of the purple bins located at Safeway. children we can mentor.” Levitt says the money raised from the bins goes towards training for mentors, as well as the children and their parents.

Strong skating results Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Local figure skaters had a strong showing this past weekend at the Cariboot’s ‘N Blades figure skating competition with many taking top stops in their categories. Top spots went to Alanna Walters who finished first in both the categories she competed in – Primary Creative C and Pre-Preliminary Ladies C, Dawn Henley who came first in Junior Bronze Ladies 13 and over, Amanda Lane who came first in Primary Creative B and Preliminary Ladies A, and Breanna Davidson who claimed first in Junior Silver Ladies. There were a number of other girls who skated well including Katie Weibe who, in spite of skating in multiple events, took second place in Pre-Introduction to Intro as well as taking third in Primary Creative C and fourth in Preliminary Ladies A. Other Williams Lake Skating Club girls include Jade Johnston who came fourth in Primary Creative C, Makinley Erickson who come second in Bronze Creative A and fifth in Preliminary Ladies A, Mackenna Alexander who came second in Bronze Creative B and sixth in Preliminary Ladies B, Brook Dawydiuk came sixth in Bronze Creative B and Pre-Introduction to Interpretive, Ashley Beauchamp came fourth in Junior Bronze Ladies 13 and over and third in Bronze Interpretive, Davidson Alanna Walters competing on Sunday in the Pre- also place fourth in Silver Interpretive.

Stamps tromp on the luckless Houston Luckies Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The Houston Luckies may have been lucky in Houston before, but last weekend the Luckies weren’t so lucky as they lost two consecutive games at the Cariboo Memorial Complex against the Stamps in the final games of their best of three. On Saturday, the Stamps fought hard and played harder in an 8-5 win and again on Sunday afternoon in the do or die game winning 6-4 over the Luckies. The Stamps wins knock the Luckies out of the playoffs and pits them against the Quesnel Kangaroos next weekend in the second round of Central Interior Hockey League playoffs.

In Saturday night’s game there was lots of scoring early on with both teams answering goals back and forth, the score 5-3 going into the second. After the first period the Luckies lost steam, allowing the Stamps to capitalize and win the game. Sunday’s game started off a lot more even with one goal a piece in the first period, in the second period the Stamps put away three while the Luckies only managed one and that would be it for them as the Stamps won 6-4. Round two is set to be full of action, as these two teams have had a strong rivalry all season, which is sure to escalate now that it is the playoffs.

Women set to gather for wellness Hundreds of women will come together in 14 communities across Canada to host Women and Wellness, proudly sponsored by Shoppers Drug Mart, events in 2012. The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is a nation-wide, charitable organization that promotes mental heath and supports the recovery of people experiencing mental illness. Women and Wellness is a unique and popular event that supports the important work of the CMHA. The money raised at these events will help the association deliver education and support programs for people afflicted with mental illness, their loved ones and the public.

Now in its ninth year, Women and Wellness began as a kitchen ‘party with a purpose’ – to do something meaningful about mental health. Over the past six years, the fundraiser has received more than $600,000 in donations and caught the attention of CMHA branches from coast to coast, with a total of ten events being held in Atlantic Canada, Ontario, and British Columbia last winter. The objective is to raise $1 million a year for the next five years. While local and regional sponsors have been very supportive, there is still tremendous opportunity for growth with new events. In 2011, Women and Wellness experienced a fresh burst of new

energy that resulted from the support of Shoppers Drug Mart as a strategic community partner across Canada who see the power of this fund raising and friend raising event. “Through education and encouragement we hope to see a society in which mental health and mental illness is discussed openly and in which those requiring help feel empowered to ask for it,” says Helen MacDonnell, Founding Chair of Women and Wellness. The local event for Women and Wellness is Feb. 29 at 6:00 p.m. those interesting in attending can call Shelia Cohen at 250-3054487 or Bettina Schoen at 250-305-4420 for more information or to RSVP.

Trust your intuition

Trust your intuition! Believe in yourself.  Let  love be your guiding light, says Judy Guido, president and national speaker with the Inner Peace Movement of Canada.  By nature we are all intuitive, as we learn to trust and listen to the still small voice within life becomes more meaningfull. Guido  is presenting talks  in Williams Lake  on Tuesday, February 14 at The Coast  Fraser Inn 285 Donald Road, Williams Lake  BC at 1pm and 7pm.  These talks are open to the public and will Guido will be sharing the strategies she has learned. “We are all unique, and have our own answers within, and when we see ourselves in a positive light the world around us changes.” says Guido. “Worry and fear is replaced with happiness and love.  The Inner Peace Movement of Canada is a non profit, educational program helps people recognize their true worth and

be involved in a positive, constructive way with their  loved ones, their community and themselves.  During the talks participants will learn how to keep life simple and joyful, find inner security and avoid distress and anxiety. We all have the ability to create harmony and balance wherever we go as long as we stay relaxed.   The Inner Peace Movement gives people tools and techniques to learn to trust themselves, stay relaxed and live their potential. “Even in challenging situations we can find solutions,” says Guido. “When we relax and trust our perceptions, inspirations and creative ideas will come to us that will help us navigate around the stumbling blocks and when we relax it is like tuning into our personal  help line for solutions.” Participants  will also learn  about,  their life purpose, the sevenyear cycles of life, and the reality of guardian angels.  They will have an opportunity to

experience their own unique vibration, ‘move mountains’  by using the power of intent and receive aura impressions. To contact Judy directly call 1 250 3170057 or email judy. guido@guidoltd.com.

Q&A Ask an expert Bold colours aren’t just for the children (NC)—For a long time, bold colours seemed too juvenile to use in abundance, too boisterous to let loose in a sophisticated setting. Now, designers say, they are the essential ingredient in even the most timid colour schemes. For example, in Deco Candy, one ofthe PPG Pittsburgh Paints trends palettes for 2012, the colours are clean and energetic. Kids would happily use any or all of them in a single room. But bold and bright colours are not just for kids. Here are the strategies for grown-ups: Ease out of neutral. If you are not accustomed to having them around, your psyche may need to ease into bold colours. Bold and bright hues work beautifully with Build up your colour neutrals. Start with a colour block to build up tolerance by introducing them into your neutral your colour tolerance.

space one wall or colour block at a time. Take their temperature.Deco Candy’s bright hues look beautiful with neutrals, as do all bold colours. Just be sure to put warm ones (red, orange, or yellow-based colours) with warm neutrals, and put cool ones (blues, greens, and violets) with cool neutrals. If you are not sure what you have, use a grey like Turtle Dove (511-4) as the main colour for wall and trim. It goes with everything. It will still work if you exchange your bold accent for another or decide to expand your accent colour to more of the room. Grey is easy to get along with. Get rid of white. Colour is softened by reducing dark-light contrasts. White trim

interrupts a colour scheme. Instead of white, match the trim to the walls, or use a lighter or darker version of the wall colour. If you really must have contrasting trim then tone it down to off-white (Mountain Gray, 416-1), or tan (Toasted Almond, 4143) or the grey, Turtle Dove, all from PPG’s Voice of Colour palette. Make ceilings a lighter version of the wall colour or a lighter coordinating colour—but banish white. There’s no such thing as too much, just too many. Colour

is not tiring, but too many colours can be. Reduce the number of colours you use, not their intensity. One main colour will create an ambiance you can settle into, but you can also pair your bold colour with others in the same family because they maintain the same mood. For example, Tangerine Dream (1237), works with Gold Buff (215-4), a dustier yellow-orange. Don’t back off. Don’t trade the colour you love for the one that is two chips above on the stripe card. That colour is not

the one you fell for at all. Instead, start small and ease in. Reduce colour clutter. Bits and pieces of colour create a busy room. Discipline your colour palette by coordinating the accessories, art and fabrics. Or, bring in one bold, beautiful colour in a big way. As counterintuitive as that may seem, the magic of bold colour is the calm it creates. Like a magnet, it pulls forward all the variations of itself from random coloured objects, and makes all the colours sing in harmony.

HOROSCOPE Changes will not be easy for the youngsters involved. Your boss may not be in the best of moods this week. Beware of colleagues who don’t have your best interests in mind. You may be fortunate while traveling. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday. Large organizations may try to talk you out of your hardearned cash. Take time to catch up on gossip and make plans to do a little adventure travel. Travel should be on your agenda. Don’t forget that your budget is limited right now. Your lucky day this week will be Sunday.

You will need to work diligently in order to accomplish even the smallest amount. Don’t overdo it. You need to enjoy yourself. Ignore colleagues who appear to be going in circles. Unpleasant situations concerning family members will be unnerving. Your lucky day this week will be Friday. Brunch, a long walk, or a quiet dinner will secure your position in the relationship. Your partner may be erratic this week if you haven’t paid enough attention to him or her. Weigh the pros and cons and make a decision that will change the conditions you’ve been living under. However, you should be concerned about what they want in return. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday.

A tried and true basic pasta recipe The Start of something good. An excellent basic pasta recipe. If you can have fun at work, home and play, I believe you are indeed prosperous. I try to have fun in everything I do, unfortunately I sometimes have to exhibit some semblance of being serious about what I am doing. This little guy decided to start doing more different recipes this year. I seem stuck in an ad-lib route these days. Too much improvising and not enough real recipe changes. However I am going to pass along something I tried with success just last week before I sort of decided

I wasn’t going to be a “let’s use whatever is in the cupboard cook.” The amounts may not be exact, because not only did I not follow a recipe, I didn’t measure any of the ingredients. I use other recipes for ideas and then tweak it to suit my tastes or those of

my guests. You can use this next pasta recipe as a basic for all kinds of pasta and if you add food items such as shrimp and other seafood, beef or pork cooked and sliced thinly, chicken, along with different vegetables. You can mix and match all kinds of food in this basic pasta recipe. KEN’S PASTA SAUCE 2 tbsp of butter 5 or 6 cloves of garlic, chopped (a dash of liquid garlic also) 1 pinch of thyme 1 1/2 cups of canned tomatoes One small tub of herb and garlic

You can win points if you present your ideas this week. Make plans to meet again in the near future. Opportunities to get ahead will be evident. You may want to take a look at your direction in life. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday.

It’s time to reconnect with some of the people you used to know. Try to make your lover understand that you need to do things with your friends. Opportunities to get ahead are evident. You’ve been a little down and you need a lift. Your lucky day this week will be Thursday.

The personal problems you may be having are interfering with your productivity. You will be able to dazzle others with your obvious charm and your outgoing nature. You will have to control the way you feel. This is not the time to lend or borrow money or possessions. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday. Get involved in activities that will bring you knowledge about foreign land, philosophies, or cultures. Travel opportunities should be your first choice. Try not to spend too much on children or entertainment. Don’t divulge secret information. Your lucky day this week will be Sunday.

Your boss won’t be too thrilled if you leave things unfinished. Travel for business will be advantageous. Don’t reveal any personal details. Don’t fall for damaging rumors, and refuse to get involved in gossip. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday.

cream cheese (I used Philadelphia brand) 1 cup of half-and-half cream 1/2 cup of Clamato Juice. Start with the butter and go down the list to the Clamato juice as you add each item, stir to blend before adding the rest. You can taste test along each step of

the way to determine if it suits your taste buds. I put this sauce on top of spinach fettuccine, but I suspect you could put this on any pasta you desire. Give it a try. You will have fun making this recipe and enjoy the different taste. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

Spend some quality time with your lover. It’s time to get yourself back on track. You’re in the mood to do things such as competitive sports, or perhaps a night on the town. You can receive recognition for the work you’ve done. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

Avoid conflicts with in-laws or other family members. Don’t push your mate if you want to keep this union going. You need some excitement in your life, and meeting new people in exotic destinations will certainly satisfy your desires. You can easily impress others with your generous nature. Your lucky day this week will be Friday. Stay calm and focus on things that will help you understand the situation better. Get help setting up a reasonable budget. Look into ways of making extra cash. It might be time for you to take a quantum leap from one career to another. You will be emotional about money matters. Your lucky day this week will be Monday.
