Water Skiing Championships are coming to Williams Lake Williams Lake, or more specifically Chimney Lake, will be home to the 2012 Provincial Water Ski Championships this summer, thanks to the efforts of our homegrown top water skiers. “It’s great news,”

says Parnell Pinette, founder and coach of Wally World Water Ski Club and owner of United Carpet. Pinette said he expects more than 50 competitors of all ages to take part in the championships, which will see com-



petitors from across the province compete in slalom skiing, ski jumping and trick skiing. For the last three years Pinette has earned top spot in the provincial championships in his age class while his 12-year-old

son Conley, a third generation water ski competitor, has also won gold in the provincials for the last three years. Even more impressive, Conley is currently ranked the best in North America in the Under 14 class. “Water skiing is a

good family sport,” Pinette said of the family affair. Pinette applied to host the event through Water Ski & Wakeboard BC, which just received $2,500 from the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural


Development's Hosting B.C. program to host the event July 28 and 29. Hosting BC funds competitive level events that support long-term athlete development plans for B.C.’s Provincial Sport Organizations.

Woman critical after crash Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Police believe alcohol was a contributing factor in a highway collision between a pick-up and a logging truck which has left a 52-year-old Williams Lake woman in critical condition. “Her injuries are serious and she remains at Royal Inland in Kamloops,” said Sgt. Rick Lebeuf of the Williams Lake RCMP. According to police, the empty logging truck was headed westbound on Highway 20 about eight kilometres from Williams Lake when the eastbound pick-up truck

collided with it at about 12:15 a.m. Monday. LeBeuf said the police have yet to determine the woman’s whereabouts in the time leading up to the crash. “There are a lot of unanswered questions,” LeBeuf said. “But right now her safety takes precedence over the investigation.” Troy Bremner of Westline Harvesting confirmed yesterday it was one of his logging trucks and driver John Haynes involved in the collision as he was headed out to the Farwell Canyon area for a load of logs.

He believes it was Haynes quick actions in swerving enough to avoid a direct collision and in extinguishing a fire in the trapped woman’s truck immediately following the crash that may have saved her life. “It happened so fast, but he remained calm enough the make the right decisions,” Bremner said, a trucking supervisor of 13 trucks who arrived onscene shortly after the crash. “She (the injured woman) was a very lucky lady to be alive.” Bremner said the

collision occurred in an area referred to by truckers as Standard General and likely will result in both vehicles being written off. He is thankful Haynes, who along with another passing driver stayed with the injured woman until help arrived, was uninjured. “He was shook up and worried about the (other) driver, which is a natural reaction,” said Bremner of Haynes, adding the driver is already back at work. “Sometimes it’s better to get back to work (after an accident) because the longer they

Woodland Drive inches closer to having services Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor After years of talk and months of public pressure, city staff and councillors are planning to meet with residents of Woodland Drive to discuss the possibility of providing water and sewer services to the area. “I would like to see action,” said city councillor Sue Zacharias at last week’s Committee of the Whole meeting. “I’d like a clear procedure and I’d like to get moving on it.” According to this week’s City Council meeting agenda, councillors were expected to pass a resolution last night that would direct city staff to engage Woodland Drive residents in a workshop to discuss the options available for water and sewer services. Last week, councillors agreed they were basically starting at square one after a federal/provincial grant application was turned down in January which would have helped shoulder costs of the estimated $3.5 million project. Brian Carruthers, the City’s Chief Administrative Officer who submitted a report to council on the matter, agreed the next step should be a “very frank and upfront discussion with Woodland residents,” as did Councillor Surinderpaul Rathor. “(We) can’t do anything without them knowing ... let them tell us what they can do,” said Rathor, who has

voiced support for residents in an area which he once referred to as having one of the largest residential tax bases in the city. Situated within the city limits, the affluent subdivision of Woodland Drive has certainly been a bone of contention for years regarding its water, or lack thereof. Despite being in the city, the area’s residents have each supplied their own water and sewer services since the subdivision’s creation in the 1980s. In recent years however, the water supply has dwindled or in some cases completely dried up, leaving residents to ask the City

for help. Resident Martin Sills has been a vocal supporter of services for the area, himself being plagued by ongoing water troubles. He said the problems not only affect current residents, it also impedes owners from building on or selling vacant lots. “I am very pleased that after decades of discussion, that this current council has the will and the foresight to finally put this longstanding issue to rest once and for all so the Woodland residents can finally move forward,” Sill said. At the Feb. 14 meeting, city staff presented councilors with a

report outlining several options for providing services to Woodland, the costs associated with the project as well as the cost implications and considerations for Woodland Drive residents. The report also reviewed the steps taken in the 1990s when the City expanded its boundaries to include 279 lots on South Lakeside Drive when those residents were in need of water and sewer. At that time the overall construction costs were about $8M, with residents shouldering $1.4M of the cost, the city contributing $2M while a grant for $4.55M covered 57

per cent of the entire project. It was pointed out at the meeting the Woodland Drive project differs in that it involves 49 lots already in the city but which vary in size from two to ten acre lots. For the resident’s part, Rathor said at least 51 per cent would have to be in agreement before any project could go ahead. The report also states that property owners

New business centre for Mackenzie Avenue Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Many may have been wondering what’s going on with the big building on Mackenzie Avenue with the huge circle windows.  First the colourful mural was painted over and now the inside has been renovated and separated into three spaces. Half of the building is an office space, the middle is an office with a research and development company in it, and the end is a gunsmith shop. Glenn and Doris Ford have been busy renovating the space since September, along with their two children Emerson and Meghan and are now ready to open up the office space. “I originally wanted the building for the gun shop, but I had a lot more space than I need-

that.” The way the Ford’s will be renting/leasing their spaces – the tenants will know what they are paying for the duration of their contract with no surprises. “We are hoping to attract people who are trying to start a business – we are hoping this concept is the kind of

break they can utilize.” The Ford’s are holding an open house on Feb.25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and invite everyone to come see what’s been going in the building at 365 N. Mackenzie Ave. “Come in and have a look,” said Glenn. “We know there has been a lot of curiosity of what we’ve been doing.”

Budget reflects the times Yesterday, the B.C. provincial government revealed their plan to get the provinces spending back on track with what Finance Minister Kevin Falcon calls a ‘prudence’ budget. Falcon hopes to return to a surplus in two years, and just how does he plan on achieving this when the B.C. deficit is almost $200 million dollars higher than most pegged it to be back in September? No, B.C. is not in the crisis Greece is, and the budget process should have been a walk in the park compared to Ontario –but that doesn’t mean British Columbian’s are going to turn a blind eye to the Liberals and their 2012-2013 budget. Falcon laid out the

government’s proposed plan to hold government spending at a tight two per cent increase (a one per cent cut compared to current levels), hopes for projected revenue growth of 2.9 per cent, and their plans to reject any wage hikes for public workers in hope that the province will be able to close its gap and post a surplus of $154 million in 2013-14. To raise income, instead of raising taxes, which would have surely seen the NDP voted in next year, Premier Christy Clark has decided to sell some of the government’s surplus properties, which they hope will bring in close to $700 million. Other good news in the budget for British

Columbia is money being pumped into the health care. According to Falcon the 2012 budget marks a turning point, of a health-care portfolio projected to absorb more than 42 per cent of total government spending by 2014-15. Of course all this comes with a cost, as MSP premiums are set to increase, and most other ministries budgets are frozen or reduced. The government did, however, follow through on its promise in October to set aside $165 million to help students with special needs. The money will be spent over three years to help schools better organize classrooms. On the social ser-

vice front, the government will boost spending money on people with developmental disabilities by $144 million over the next three years. The money includes $40 million that Premier Christy Clark has promised for Community Living B.C. As in any budget, people will something to criticize, and many British Columbia’s who were upset over the HST will find something else wrong, but over all Falcon has a delivered a responsible budget. Time will tell if the Liberals follow through, and are given the chance next year to continue on their plan of having a surplus in two years.

Embracing the male nurse Most of us hate to admit it, but even in this day and age we are still stereotypical when it comes to men and women. No it doesn’t happen everyday. We don’t drop our jaws to the ground when we hear of male nurse, but we are still a little shocked when we expect it to be a woman who opens that curtain and low and behold it’s a man. Why is that we still assume that men will take on the manly jobs,

and women take on the more womanly jobs in society? And it’s not just male and female stereotyping that pops up in society, but ageism too. It’s often seen that older people are more responsible, so when we hear about impaired driving accidents we aren’t surprised when we hear it was a young adult, but are shocked if it is an older person. It’s not fair, but it happens everyday. We

are judged for how old we look, how old we are, what we wear, and if we are women or men. It’s part of society. But remember this – men can and do drive cars, women can and do drive trucks, men can be and are nurses, while women can and do work in construction and this list can go and on. We are past the day and age of women always staying at home with children, and we

are past the time of older adults never getting into trouble (was there ever a time they didn’t get in trouble?) We might have heard time and time again, but stereotypes really do no good in our society – they only hurt and limit us. Instead of being shocked the next time we hear of a male nurse or young entrepreneur let’s celebrate these people for slowly breaking out of the molds society has created.

The personal freeway to increasing your longevity One frosty spring morning, my husband Grant and I pulled a breech bull-calf. But when the little fellow slid out onto the frozen ground he wasn’t breathing. Though I am reluctant to reveal my ranching IQ, the nurse in me suggested that Grant try mouthto-mouth on the poor creature. (Well - I wasn’t going to do it!) The air was crisp and clean, my husband is trained in CPR and the calf looked healthy. No harm was done, but our attempts

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett were futile. There was just one fatal problem. After entering the lungs, the air just didn’t go anywhere. Sometimes we make the same deadly mistake with our own

health. To benefit us, good food and oxygen need some ‘Move it! Move it!’ Exercise provides to the brain what the freeway system provides to Los Angeles - everything! I am not one of those who call exercise a ‘high,’ a positive addiction or fun! Occasionally I have considered exercise little more than a nasty cure for the comfort of my la-z-y boy and the coziness of my bed! However, in a maximum-security prison filled with the

most violent of criminals, the violence rate dropped to zero when the inmates began a regular exercise program. And in some persons, all that is needed to cure depression is a daily walk. This free quick-fix boosts circulation to the frontal lobe, bringing nutrients and oxygen to billions of cells in our brain’s network. Moving right along . . . a recent longevity study shows that the speed of a senior’s walk reveals how much longer they will live.

Take 'em two at a time! (Stairs, not pills!) And is exercise even more important than not smoking? Yup! Exercise is a mindaltering, life-changing gift you give yourself, along with the ability to bounce out of a chair - for years! Mayo Clinic statistics also reveal that exercise helps mood control and improves sex and sleep. With daily cardio, and a bit of weightlifting for shape and metabolism, I just might enjoy parking the car a little further away!

For the techies there is GymPact (which charges for skipping gym) or Health Rally (a carrot and stick network). Grant, a wannabe rancher, wears a pedometer en route to the herd, and reaches for 10,000 steps a day. Every health article shouts, “Remember to check with your doctor . . .” But if you want to make a real impression, watch your doctor’s face if you tell him you won’t be exercising any more. Then ask, “Would that have any impact on my health?”

Fortunately, we can talk ourselves into or out of a choice! We need to take time out for exercise or make time for disease. Of course, I don’t always want to head out, but for me, having a column named ‘Dear Flabby’ would be unthinkable! Commit to be fit! The open road, fresh air, a sprinkling of sunshine and an invigorated body and mind offer vast rewards. I’ll see you at the corner but first I must check the cows!

ity of the resident to shovel the snow away from the spot where they normally place their containers. It is not necessary for the resident to move the containers further into the street as the snow may creep out into the street. The resident only needs to ensure that there are no piles

of snow in front of the container that would impede the movement of the arm on the garbage truck. The resident also needs to remove the carts as soon as possible after they have been emptied. The City will continue to clean the streets when the snow

is falling as it has in the past. The plow trucks will be paying special attention to the areas where the garbage/ recycling containers will be on the street. They will be avoiding the containers with the blades of the truck as well as the snow that comes off the blades.

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. 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

Employment Opportunities

Please go to and click on Human Resources to see employment opportunities. WINTER GARBAGE SERVICES 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. • 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. • Put your carts as close to the pavement as possible. If the cart is on top of a snow bank or other obstruction it cannot be picked up. • Remove your cart from the curb the same day it was collected to ensure your empty carts do not interfere with snow removal equipment.

CMHA cuts racism off at the pass Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Multiculturalism is an important part of a healthy community, and since

2004 the CaribooChilcotin branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association has had a multiculturalism program in place

to help the community celebrate its diversity. “Our philosophy is that if we celebrate our diversity and find out what we have in common we’ll have a happy, healthier community,” said Marilyn Livingston, who is the event coordinator for the Multiculturalism program in town. Through the program, Livingston said many different programs are offered in Williams Lake and the surrounding area to help the idea of celebrating our diversities become the norm instead of having acts of racism bring the community down. “After an act of racism in town, a concerned group of citizens formed a committee, and it evolved into what (the multiculturalism program) is today,” said Livingston. The program now includes a wide range of events and programs aimed at making people and children feel included and look past our differences.

“Mental heath is all about being proactive versus reactive,” said Livingston. “If you have a healthy community it filters down.” One of the programs Livingston helps facilitate is the Twin School program that sees a school from in town paired up with a rural First-Nations school. “The grades four, five and six in each school – this year it is Kwaleen and the Sxoxomic School in Alkali Lake – participate in a pen pal,’ said Livingston. “The children also go on field trips together.” Livingston said the Twin School program is one way of engaging the young members in our community in a whole cross culture sharing. Another project the Multiculturalism Program is working on right now is the community cookbook, which Livingston said they hope will everyone can find some common ground on. “We believe that one

thing every culture has in common is food,” she said. “We are hoping to draw everyone together.” Livingston said she hopes the cookbook will be published by the fall and they are accepting recipes and stories to go along with them until the beginning of the summer. “The cookbooks will be costly up front, but we plan on selling them when they are finished,” said Livingston. “Our program is always vulnerable to cuts and we depend on donations and funding. Last year, the Women and Wellness event donated the funds they raised to the Multiculturalism program and Livingston said the money went into the big pot. “Women and Wellness is all about a proactive approach, which is what we are about,” said Livingston. “We work on programs that promote multiculturalism in some way and in turn promote a healthier community.”

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor What started out as a menswear shop built in the 1940’s by the Brocowski brother’s has had a multitude of different businesses and tenants over the past 60 plus years. Many just used the space as it was and moved on leaving behind remnants of fire damage, rot, and an unstable exterior wall, but thanks to current owner Sue Lachance the building finally received the care it needed to become beautiful again. “I am really looking forward to people coming and seeing what can be done with some of the old buildings in town,” said Lachance. Lachance currently runs New World Café at 72 Oliver Street, which

ber is that the building she is in, use to be part of the Famous Café, which was be next door where the Boot Cabaret is now. “The two building use to be joined together with an archway – which we found when we renovated,” said Lachance. ‘From what I have been told this space was used for retail with books and magazines.” Lachance said lots of people come in and remember what the building use to house and are quite taken by how it looks now. “(The building) has a

huge amount of history – it’s been everything from a menswear shop when the Brokowski brothers owned it to a computer shop, a jeans store and it had a sound recording studio in the back at one point,” she said. Lachance was the chairman of the Communities in Bloom committee for 12 years, and says for her to take something like this run down building and take our downtown and add to it and beautify it is very important. “I am really eager to show people what can be done.”

Heritage Week runs all this week. Feb. 22 at the TRU Gathering Place Xat’sull Chief Bev Sellars is going to be giving a presentation entitled ‘First Nations History and contributions to Canadian Society from 7 – 9 p.m. Other local historical buildings the CRD and City are encouraging residents to check out this week include the Potato House, the Cariboo Arts and Culture Centre, the Station House Gallery, Woodland Jewellers, Delainey’s Centre, Laketown Furnishing and Cariboo Saddlery.

Victory well deserved as Stampeders trample Kangaroos Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor With tons of support for both sides, Cariboo Memorial Complex was a full house Saturday night for game two of the best of three series in the CIHL playoffs between the Williams Lake Stampeders and the Quesnel Kangaroos. But all the noise the Q-town fans could make wouldn’t be enough to force game three.

The two teams were evenly matched in the first period with two goals apiece, but the Kangaroos seemed to have an edge in the second period scoring three goals while the hometown boys only managed two. But that would be the end of the visitor’s scoring as the Stamps put away four unanswered goals in the third to come out on top 8-5 and move on to the Coy Cup final against

Smithers next weekend. Most of the Stampeders eight goals were scored on the power play, as it seemed the Kangaroos were playing a little rough for the 100 Mile House based refs. Matt Lees, Francis Johnson, and Wilfred Robbins all scored two goals apiece; well captain Nathan Zurak added one, as did Brent McIsaac. The Stamps will host the

Smithers Steelheads Saturday night at the Cariboo Memorial Complex for game one of the Coy Cup Finals. The Steelheads went undefeated during the regular season, (180), and who are undefeated in playoff action, (4-0). The Stamps lost both their games against the Steelheads this season, so it will be a tough league final for the defending league champions.

Q&A Ask an expert A major bathroom addition made easy (NC)—Anyone who’s ever done it knows that adding a bathroom to the home can be quite a challenge. Finding the right plumber and installing the drainage line can take days of construction, not to mention deep pockets. “We can help with that,” says Daniel Cayer, the national sales manager for Saniflo Canada, an industry leader in macerating toilet systems. “Not only do our systems provide a cost-effective solution to homeowners and renovators, the macerating toilets also provide an alternative when standard plumbing fixtures are impossible or costprohibitive due to the positioning of existing

drain lines. With our products, anyone can install a bathroom where needed: a basement, garage, attic, or even under the stairs.” Cayer says the macerating toilet

systems eliminate the need for conventional rough-in with belowfloor drainage. Because walls and floors remain intact, these abovefloor systems do not require expensive renovations, and

installation is quick and easy. “Whether you are considering adding a spare bathroom to your home or even renovating an existing one, we offer a more simple solution to

what can be a complex problem,” Cayer continued. “Our toilets can be installed in as little as half a day. With macerating systems, he explained, flush water is routed through the toilet into a macerator where a rotating blade reduces waste and toilet paper, so it can be pumped away through 3/4inch piping to the nearest drain line. This small-diameter pipe means drain lines can run without opening up walls and floors. Macerating

systems also feature additional drainage inlets, allowing for the connection of a sink, bath and shower. The result is a desired bathroom installed quickly and cost

effectively, anywhere you need. More information is available online at or tollfree at 1-800-3635874.

Klaue said he has been active in the local

Soccer Fest this Saturday Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor There will be soccer balls, nets, and energetic children running around in the Williams Lake Secondary gym this Saturday and if you look close enough and you are a Vancouver White Cap fan you just might spot Sam Lenarduzzi and Carl Valentine. It’s that time of year once again – Soccer Fest 2012 is upon us. “Kids that come into register can, if they have clean indoor shoes, kick the ball around with the guys,” said Rob Tazelaar, who is the new administrator for the

Williams Lake Youth Soccer Association. According to Tazelaar, the Valentine and Lenarduzzi will be going on an elementary school tour on Friday, and then will be at Soccer Fest on Saturday. “On top of getting registrations for the upcoming season, Soccer Fest is about promoting soccer in town and upping our profile.” From 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., WLYSA will be set up in the common area in WLSS along with booths for the White Cap soccer camp, the European

Football Camp, the men’s and ladies’ soccer league, and Big Brother and Sisters will also have a booth according to Tazelaar. Soccer enthusiasts can come to register and then for the younger ones there will be time in the morning for kicking the ball around and then in the afternoon there is allotted time for the DDC players to work with Valentine and Lenarduzzi to run specialized programs. As for registration, Tazelaar said they have already received close to 50 by mail, and hope to have a third of their registrations for the season

happen at Soccer Fest. “Deadline to register is March 9, and people can mail their registration in if they can’t make it Saturday.” The WLYSA just relocated to their new office at #204- 179 N. Second Ave in the Phoenix building. On top of registration and having some, Soccer Fest is a great opportunity for the club to get some exposure and attract some much-needed volunteers and interest into the sport. “We really want to promote these camps, and the game in general,” said Tazelaar.

Judo club for the last five years, and said he got started because of his dad. “He was in judo when he was a kid up until he was 16, and is still part of my club.” Klaue said his parents are very supportive of him in Judo, but he will be making his first trip to Vernon without them as he leaves 100 Mile House at 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning. “I am spending the night there with some friends,” said Klaue.  With the last six weeks being all about making sure he was fit to compete, he is now ready to focus on preparing himself for the games and the competition that comes along with them. “Athletics are very important to me, and (judo) is something I am better at than other (sports),” said Klaue.

“I am very competitive and the games are an opportunity to see how well you do against other people.” He said he is just happy to be able to par-

ticipate this weekend, and he will just do his best. The B.C. Winter Games are this weekend, Feb. 23 to Feb. 26 in Vernon.

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Due to a medical scare, 15-year-old local martial artist Rudy Klaue almost missed out on his first appearance at the B.C. Winter games, but as of Monday morning Klaue has been given the go ahead to go to Vernon to compete. “I was having medical issues involving headaches for the last six weeks,” said Klaue. “Now I am excited to be able to go (to the B.C.

Winter Games).” Klaue qualified to represent Zone 8 in Judo in early December when he attended tryouts in Prince George. “A lady saw me at a training camp in 100 Mile House and told me I was good enough to try out,” he said. “I was the only one in my weight division (at the tryouts) so I qualified automatically.” As for training, he said he has been unable to for the last six weeks but did get one practice Monday night where found his cardio was low. “If I want to do well I am going to have to win the match in less than a minute,” he said. “I am a tiny bit nervous (about the games), but I am used to going up against people who are better

HOROSCOPE It’s time you let your true feelings out. Don’t tell others of your plans. Your mind will be on matters that deal with secret affairs.

Partners may try to argue with you; however, you must stand your ground. Get out and rub shoulders with people in high positions if possible. You’ll be angry if those you live with aren’t pulling their weight.

Voice your opinions and contribute to the debate. Be careful; you may upset someone you live with if you don’t consult with them. If you join intellectual or cultural groups, you should meet individuals who stimulate you.

You need to distance yourself from the situation for a little while first. Don’t overindulge in anyway. Romance can surface if you get into some of those fitness programs you’ve been putting off.

Last Week’s Answers

Make those phone calls and pay your bills. If you take on too much of a financial burden you may make yourself ill. Don’t delay; go to your physician or dentist and get to the bottom of the discomfort.

Use your intellectual approach to get the best results. Payoff all your debts before you go out and celebrate. Female members of your family may be difficult to deal with.

Dazzle them with your intellectual conversation. You have done all you can to sort things out a personal level. You will learn valuable information if you travel today.

A lot to learn about a person when you talk about cooking No matter where I go in my travels, when I get into conversations with those I meet, it seems I tell them I do some cooking and ask them if they have any recipes. You can always learn a little about the person or persons when you talk about cooking. If the individual talks a lot about fried foods, lots of starch foods, and a bunch of foods that put on the pound, you could assume the person is maybe not healthy or are young and don’t care. Also how much and how fast you eat, may also be a telling story. In the end however I seem to get some

pretty good recipes. Usually I store some of these in the part of my brain that accepts these thing and hope it will cough them up when it comes time to remember them. In Asia folks eat a lot of cucumbers and when I was talking to Butch from North Vancouver, he does not cook very

much but does do a good job on cucumbers and gave me a recipe which is not coming from my storage part of my brain. I will e-mail him and pass it along to you on another occasion. I want to thank Mark Law and all the great staff at Save on Foods for the contribution of food for the dinner I do each year for the Chamber of Commerce. The Asian section is good and I am able to find most of the ingredients I need for Thai Cooking. They use a lot of shrimp paste, which is made by fermenting shrimp for two years. This along with Thai

Take time to do something nice for yourself. Consider starting a small business on the side. Look for a marketable gimmick. Things will be emotional with your mate.

There could be disappointment regarding investments. Don’t let friends convince you that you should contribute to something you don’t believe in. Take a look at your legal position.

sauces and other goodies are available in the Asian section or the produce department. I picked up this nice vinaigrette from a lady I met in Taiwan... Balsamic Dijon Vinaigrette 1/2-cup balsamic vinegar 1/4-cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup of olive oil 1/4 cup of water 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard 3 tbsp of finely minced garlic 2 tbsp of lemon juice 1 tsp of pepper 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes Mix and enjoy with your next salad Bye for now and Goood Cooking

Drastic changes regarding your personal attitude are evident. Lend an ear to children; it can make a difference. Your emotions may get the better of you.

Physical work or exercise should be part of your schedule. You may find out that someone has not been completely honest with you. You may have been too agreeable to someone who just wanted to use you.

Secret enemies may be holding a grudge that you’re not even aware of. Sudden changes in your financial situation are likely. Don’t let your family put demands on you.

Woodland services Continued from Page 3 would be responsible for the costs of bringing the services to their homes from the property line, they would have to decommission their existing wells and septic systems and no further subdivision of properties would be permitted with the proposed system. The current proposal for Woodland Drive also does not include fire hydrants due to the limited capacity and pressure of the proposed system. When they applied for the grant, councilors were in favour of an option which would see a common trench dug along Woodland Drive which would house both the sewer and water lines, opt-

ing for a 75 mm pipe but also laying down a larger 250 mm pipe for the eventual expansion of the city and services which would one day see another water reservoir placed above Woodland Drive, as part of the Official Community Plan.

According to Alaric, there is no great social or political importance to the play and it’s just for pure enjoyment. “It’s not an intense drama and it’s not a musical so it’s easy for everyone to enjoy,” said Moore. The play runs Feb. 22 to Feb. 25 this week and again next week Feb. 29 to March. 3,

doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m. sharp. “This has been an incredible cast to work with and everyone has bonded nicely towards opening night in a wonderful way,” said Alaric. “We’re hoping for a full house (on opening night).”
