Sam Ketcham Pool Opens Without much fanfare, the Sam Ketcham Pool is expected to reopen this Friday with a regularly scheduled length swim at 5:30 a.m.. The pool has been closed for nearly a month after a chlorine gas release sent more than 70 adults and children participating in a Blue Fins swim meet to hospital.

Man in Motion World Tour and accompany the Rick Hansen Relay through the streets I grew up on is an exciting milestone in my journey.” Hansen has been traveling along with the relay as much as he could the past seven months between his commitments with his Foundation, and spending time with his family. “The experience of witnessing positive

Cabin Fever hits the Cariboo Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor For the last nine years the best of bluegrass musicians from North America have been coming to the Williams Lake area for the 108 Cabin Fever Bluegrass Workshop. “The fellows that are coming and leading the seminars are some of the top blue grass musicians,” said Rosetta Paxton, the coordinator for the workshop and concert that follows. Paxton said some of the musicians coming include the Foggy Hogtown Boys from Toronto and Bluegrass Etcetera from the Untied States. “ The Foggy Hogtown Boys are a band that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated,” said Paxton. “Lots of people have

been asking when they are coming back to town – well they are this year.” Paxton said the workshop runs March 28 to April 1 and there will be a concert Sunday night at the Gibraltar room. “Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the complex or at the door for $25,” said Paxton. “(People) are going to see the best Bluegrass in North America.” Paxton herself has been playing blue grass music for years, and is part of a local band called Highway 97. “I play rhythmic guitar and am a vocalist,” she said. Paxton said she loves blue grass music

CRD receives over $400,000 For those confined to wheelchairs, the great outdoors sadly is sometimes out of reach. But that will be changing at several locations in the Cariboo this summer as trails become a little more user friendly thanks to a provincial grant. On Monday the B.C. government announced $401, 250 from the Ministry of Community Sport, and Cultural Development’s Community Recreation Program to the Cariboo Regional District for wheelchair accessible trail development. “It’s great news,” said Al Richmond the CRD chairman. “We will now be able to provide wheelchair accessible trails throughout the regional district – from far south cariboo up to the north cariboo.” At the Dec. 9 CRD Board meeting the board voted to include a request for 14 trail sites planned throughout the Cariboo Chilcotin in their application for the B.C. Community Recreation (BCCR) grant. The sites include trails near Lac La Hache, Parkland, 108 mile, Horsefly, Alexis Creek, Barkerville, Likely, Churn Creek and Gavin Lake. “We couldn’t be happier to begin the process in developing and extending these trails to make them accessible for everyone,” said Richmond. Wheelchair Accessible Wilderness Trails Project will include widening of trails, reduction of steep grades, improving trail surfaces, brush clearing, installation of wheelchair accessible outhouses and installation of w heelchair accessible benches and picnic tables. “I think it’s incredible that we’re helping pioneer something so fantastic and I hope the trails get a lot of use,” said Donna Barnett, Cariboo Chilcotin MLA.

Young woman finds family in CCSAR Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Don’t judge a book by its cover – an old saying and so very true in so many cases. Take for example 24-year-old Brielle Penner. On the surface she is like any other young adult finishing up school, working lots and having fun with friends in between but after only a few minutes of talking with her and she will most likely bring up her second family – the Central Cariboo Search and Rescue team.  Penner has been a member since early 2011 and her interest in helping and educating people began in her late teens. When she was just 17 she lost two friends in accidents relating to drinking and drinking and she decided to deal with the tragedy in a positive way – by educating others. “I was the President of the Counter Attack Road Sense Team at my high school in Kelowna,” said Penner. “We did mock crashes, seatbelt awareness and drunk driving awareness – I liked everything about (the program).” When Penner moved to the lakecity, she was introduced to members of the CCSAR and decided it was something she wanted to be a part of. “I came in and learned a little about what they did and when I learned about AutoEx I knew it was something I’d like to get into.” A year later and she has taken most of the training available and

Brielle Penner is one of the few volunteers at the Central Cariboo Search and Rescue who has her class three driver's license and can drive this truck. is now the communications person for the CCSAR. “(Search and Rescue) has been awesome,” said Penner. “They are my second family since we see each other so often.” Penner is one three females on the AutoEx team, but there are quite a few female volunteers through out the Land Search and Rescue team – she is also one of the younger team members with only a handful younger than her. “Age and gender doesn’t really matter in Search and Rescue,” she said. “We all come together and work as a team – there are no feelings of judgment.” Penner said it is their common interest in helping people and being there to do the same thing that keeps them united as a team. “We do everything we

can to comfort people in their traumatic experiences,” said Penner. “We are there for the patient to keep them calm, which means we need to stay calm and collected as well.” Penner said her most memorable moment from the past year of being apart of the CCSAR team was seeing a patient she assisted with after she was in a car accident. “I assisted BC Ambulance with a patient who had severe injuries,” said Penner. “I talked with the patient and kept her calm.” Penner said in most cases, they never see the people they help again and often don’t know how they are doing after the incident whether it be a car accident, or other traumatic experience. “I met this girl

through my practicum and we couldn’t figure out how we knew each other right away until she mentioned her car accident,” said Penner. “It was great to get to know her and how she was doing after the accident.” Penner said the moment they remembered each other it brought tears to her eyes, and it gives her satisfaction to know how this patient was doing after the accident. “It was exciting and I even have met her family, which is huge for me,” said Penner. In many cases the volunteers help many victims who they never see again, but in rare cases such as Penner’s they can take a deep breath and know what they did helped someone survive and carry on a normal life.

Other than being able to help people, Penner said search and rescue has given her the opportunity to be able to educate others about safety, which is very important to her and she has been able to learn many skills she wouldn’t have otherwise. “We learn different scenarios, which is important because you never know what type of call you’ll get next.”

City budget meetings scheduled The next two City of Williams Lake public budget meetings are taking place Thursday March 22 and Thursday march 29. Both meetings start at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall.

Rick Hansen relay set to arrive this Sunday Continued from Page 1 August 24 in Newfoundland. Twenty five years ago the Man in Motion Tour’s main goal was to raise awareness and money for spinal cord injuries and research. This time around the goal is about showcasing the achievements of everyday Canadians as par of a movement from one man in motion to many in motion, according to Hansen. “I hope to inspire the next generation of difference makers to believe in themselves and to believe that together, we have the power to change anything,” said Hansen. In the last 25 years, Hansen said incredible progress has

been made in research and care for those affected by spinal cord injuries. “Thanks to collaborations within the medical community and a shared vision for the future, we are seeing amazing results - more accessible physical spaces and services, increased support for wheelchair sports, greater support for those with disabilities and spinal cord related injuries, vastly improved medical treatment and people walking again after spinal cord injuries.”

Spring a busy time for SPCA volunteers Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Currently the Williams Lake SPCA is home to about 60 animals – which according to Kirsten Meadows is relatively quiet for the shelter. “We are used to housing 100 or more animals in the shelter at one time,” said Meadows, who is the Animal Care Attendant and has been at the Williams Lake SPCA for five years. The Williams Lake SPCA currently has four employees who do all the cleaning of the kennels, taking in strays, completing adoptions and general care of the animals. On top of all of that Meadows said they also work on coming up with ideas on how to fundraise. “If we had someone who would want to volunteer their time to help organize fundraising events that would be awesome,” said Meadows. She said currently they have lots of volunteers who come up to the shelter on a regular basis to walk animals, and help out with cleaning around the shelter. “We have quite a few regular’s who have been coming for close to 10 years,” said Meadows. “They all very helpful and do pretty much everything that we girls do.” As for adoptions, the process is fairly simple – anyone wishing to adopt an animal from the shelter must fill out an application form, and then the staff try to

Williams Lake has the highest rate of stray cats in British Columbia. The local SPCA staff is encouraging pet owners to spay or neuter. match pets to owners. “The adoption fees include spaying and neutering, vaccination, deworming, a free vet exam and a free bag of food that the animal was eating at the shelter,” said Meadows. The shelter is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to assist the public with questions regarding pet behavior, complaints, to conduct owner surrenders if need be, handle adoptions and what keeps them busiest – taking in strays. “Kitten season just around the corner,” said Meadows. “One year we had 80 kittens – it’s hard to find homes for that many kittens.” Meadows is hoping this year will not be a repeat of that year, but she did say Williams Lake has the highest amount of stray cats per capita in British Columbia.

On top of the many stray cats, she said they also get a lot of stray dogs and puppies in but that they have a higher rate of being claimed while cats and kittens rarely get claimed. “We really want to promote spaying and neutering because it would prevent a lot of the strays we see come

in.” The Williams Lake SPCA is holding a fundraiser this week along the theme of promoting spaying and neutering – Spay-ghetti and No Balls. “This is the second dinner we’ve held – last year is was a Bow Wow Luau,” said Meadows. “The money goes to our

operations – but we are planning on using some of the money raised to build a lean-to shed in back to store our kitty litter.” She said they typically go through about a tonne of kitty liter a month and it is currently being stored in one of their dog kennels. “We also use money raised to help pay for some of the medical expenses for the animals,” she said. “There always seems to be something wrong when they come in be it dental, ear mites, needing to be spayed or neutered or a bladder infection.”

No matter the time of year, Meadows said the shelter always has a wish list for items they would rather have donated than taken out the budget. These items include wet, canned kitten and puppy food, laundry soap, garbage bags, and gift cards are always welcomed. “If we need to go out and buy (all the items on the wish list), it cuts into the money used for things like medical expenses,” said Meadows. “And we would much rather fix bladder infections and teeth problems for the animals.”

Dealing with life’s ups and downs Life is full of challenges, it’s all in how you deal with your challenges that make you who you are and shape your life. Rick Hansen was given a big challenge when he was just 18, he lost the use of his legs, but did he let that get in his way? No, he went on to complete his Man in Motion World Tour to raise money and awareness for spinal cord injuries, and is currently involved with the 25th anniversary of the tour with the Rick Hansen Relay. The relay has brought together Canadians from across the country who are making a difference in their com-

munity. Rick has dealt with his ‘challenge’ in the best way possible and is inspiring individuals across not only Canada but all over the world. Tim Rees, a former lakecity resident, is legally blind but has not let that challenge stop him from leading not only a normal life, but by most people’s standards an extraordinary one. He is going to the 2012 Paralympic Games in September to compete in judo, a sport he loved before he was legally blind and has stuck with it and pushed himself even further. Rees has a Ph. D in applied math, a master’s degree in com-

puter science and an undergraduate in engineering science. He is married with two young sons, and continues to live a wonderful life coming back to the Cariboo whenever he can. When I learn about these two men’s stories and how they have overcome their adversities it makes my challenges in life seem insignificant. Yes I may be a young twenty something trying to find my way in life and having some troubles along the way in terms of where to live (thanks mom and dad for taking me in), and for a while there I was car-less. I was troubled with my rela-

tionship, and the question of what I wanted out of life. But all I need to remember is wherever I go, to go with all my heart – to give everything I do all of my effort. I remember stories such as Rick Hansen’s and Tim Rees’ and remember that there are big challenges in life that can be worked past, so there is always going to be a way for me to work past the challenges that my life has thrown my way so far. As long is I go forward in life with everything I have and do the best that I can and try to do some good along the way – I think I’ll be okay.

Break out the sandals Spring began yesterday according to our calendars, but we all know Mother Nature has a funny way of making us feel like it’s spring and then blindsiding us with a late March snow storm. So how do we know when it’s really

spring? When can we pack away those coats and boots for the season, the answer is ... it depends. For me, when the sun is shining and the birds are chirping it is hard to keep focused on tasks inside – I am ready

to open up the windows, let the air in and bask in the warm sunlight. There’s a long way to go before we can ditch our coats and socks and shoes, but with the nice weather starting to come it’s hard not to think winter is over and sum-

mer is on it’s way. For me, I’ve eased into ditching the socks opting for flats instead if boots… now if only I could wear my sandals – that would make my day. Come on spring – come now and come for good.

Nolan Lucas catches some air at Kiwanis Park on Monday afternoon - the sun was out showing signs spring is on its way.

Lift your glass to a cheerleader in a cup It was a frightening newspaper article about a substance we use every day. As little as 3 inches of it can be fatal. Too much of it in the air can drown a baby, and it has been used to quickly intimidate prisoners into subjection. The smallest amount can be annoying, and out-of-control quantities cause incalculable damage. So why not get rid of this awful stuff? Drip . . . drip . . . drip . . . Because it is water! Our bodies and our blue planet are both composed of about 65% water. Without water we would be chronically sluggish, age prematurely, and prone to illness. Lack of water is the world’s greatest cause of fatigue

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett other than sleep loss. Skipping that sparking glass removes lubrication from our joints and plumpness from our skin. And for those who keep tabs on their weight, lack of water causes cravings! The greatest danger with water isn’t floods, or drowning in the bathtub - it’s not getting enough! Drinking when thirst calls is too

late - just like running out of gas before heading to the service station! Right this minute I’m in India, the land of the monsoon, after 25 hours of flying - with stops in Hong Kong, Bejing, Bangkok and finally Delhi. A happy “hat’s off ” to Cathay Pacific Airline for their nearly continual gifts of water and juice to the passengers! My seat mate and I deluged our bodies with water and arrived feeling remarkably refreshed. In recognizing water’s energizing benefit, Anita Renfroe dubs it the “Cheerleader in a Cup”. Research recommends taking one’s weight in pounds, dividing by 2, then

drinking that number of ounces of water daily. A 150-lb. person would need 75 ounces of water daily, or just over a gallon. Of course more is needed during exercise, on a hot day, if not eating regular meals, or in an air-conditioned environment. For me, it’s simplest to chug-a-lug a couple of glasses early in the morning, have another glass before bedtime, then try not to skip a waking hour without having a drink. Overdoing water consumption isn’t common - it’s more likely that we drown our meals while attempting to catch up on our water debt - thus messing up our digestion as well. Coffee, alcohol, and caffeine-con-

taining drinks worsen the problem further as they dehydrate us right when we think we are drinking! If sufficiently hydrated, palest yellow is the color you’ll see . . . please don’t make me explain that in the newspaper! Water is a quick

pick-me-up that puts us down gently, without causing other problems. After breathing, drinking water is our next most urgent need. No wonder we seem willing to pay more for it (in bottles), than we do for gasoline! Thirsty? Try some

cool water! Cravings? Cure them with Adam’s Ale! Feeling tired or toxic? Have some refreshing H2O - inside and out. Need a break? Meet those ‘drinking buddies’ at the water fountain! Your body’s billions of cells will thank you! Cheers!

NDP candidate questions validity of Forests Practices Board Dear Editor, While facing additional logging and after failing to obtain any assistance from the Minister of Forestry for the ranchers of Big Creek regarding the effect of existing massive clear cuts on their operations, Lana Popham, NDP agriculture critic, sought the assistance of the Minister of Agriculture in the Legislature. Since this issue has been raised in Victoria, ranchers from Lac LaHache, Bridge Lake, Kersley, Cherryville, Nelson and Salmo have confirmed similar effects of logging on their operations. In addition, on March 13, 2012, Randy Saugstad,in part, wrote to the Minister of Forestry the following : "This year we have not had the prolonged drought or the cold snap in November as referred to in the 2011 report. However I still have no water for my livestock. That leaves the 2 other probable causes, pine beetle and logging. When we only had pine beetle to contend with I still had plenty of water. How convenient is it that you and Donna Barnett can always downplay the logging part of that investigation? Another recommendation of the board report was a hydrological assessment before any further logging took place. Now I learn that BC Timbersales is going to do more logging with NO proper assessment. What good is it for the Forest Practices Board doing these reports if your government continually ignores them? Are FPB recommendations really just suggestions as I have been told by Ministry staff?" The Minister of Agriculture's comments are attached. Charlie Wyse. NDP candidate, Cariboo Chilcotin

He started a journey that I am sure more than one person said could not be done. He did it and in the process his country, our country became very proud of him. Where were you

Rees readies for 2012 Paralympic Games Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The international spotlight will be shining brightly this fall on a former lakecity resident as he competes at the 2012 Paralympic Games in judo. Currently ranked eighth or ninth in the world standings, 32-year-old Tim Rees doesn’t let anything stop him from achieving his dreams and that includes a degenerative eye disease that is gradually robbing him of his vision. “As an athlete you always want to be able to compete at a higher and higher level,” said Rees. “I’ve always wanted to do as well as I could and I decided to aim for a pretty high level.” Rees is training three to four times a week at the Victoria Judo Club near where he lives and has a coach for strength and conditioning through the Pacific Institute for Sports Excellence, in hopes of

reaching the podium in September. “It’s been lots of hard work to get (to the games),” said Rees. “And there is lots of work still to do.” An overachiever by anyone’s standards, Rees is a math whiz with a Ph. D in Applied Math. He also has an undergraduate degree in engineering science and a Master’s degree in computer science at the University of British Columbia. According to Rees, when he needs it he will be able to use computer programs that read text out to him, and for now he uses a device that enlarges text and changes the colour to make it easier for him to read since he still as some of his peripheral vision left. “I don’t consider myself an over achiever,” said Rees. “There are always people out there doing more than you – I try and aim to be better and keep trying.”

Tim Rees will have family support behind him going to the 2012 Paralympic Games in London including that of his wife Aya and his two sons, Walter and William. Rees found judo in 1999, and began competing at a more serious level in 2008. “When I fight in practice it’s no different from a normal fight, in competition the start of the fight is different (for vision-impaired athletes).” He says being vision impaired in judo is not as much a problem as it is in other sports. The opportunity

arose to compete in the Paralympics after Rees placed in the top five at the World’s competition in Turkey in 2011. He also received the bronze medal in Mexico in the fall, which secured his spot on the Paralympics team. As for support, Rees isn’t lacking any – he has his wife Aya and his two boys Walter and William as well as family here in Williams

Lake, Kathy and Walter Rees. “It is very disturbing as a parent when things happen to your children that place obstacles in their path. We feel doubly proud that Tim has overcome these obstacles and is leading a happy and fulfilled life,” said Tim’s biggest fans, his mom and dad. “We are so very proud of him...  and

Aya (for her) endlessly supportive of Tim’s endeavors, and also his day to day challenges.” Rees did grow up here in town and said he tries to visit as often as he can, but lately his schedule has been very busy especially with all the training he has been doing in preparation for the Paralympic Games. Rees said he’s happy he’s been able to stick with judo despite

his diminishing eyesight and going to the Paralympics in a sport he enjoys so much is a great feeling. “It’s pretty exciting – it’s a big deal. I believe I can win a medal (in London). If I have the right day I should be able to get on the podium.” said Rees. “My wife and children have been doing their best to support me – they make it possible.”

Nicholas Paul and his family (centre) were guest of honour at the B.C. Aboriginal Hockey tournament this past weekend as players, coaches and officals gathered Saturday afternoon for the opening ceromonies. Paul, who is battleing leukemia, was flown in from Vancouver for the celebration.

There were lots of teams playing this weekend in the Central B.C. Aboriginal Hockey Tournemnent - the youngest were novice with two teams the Little Tomahawks from Williams Lake in the yellow and the Little Coyotes in red from Prince George who played against each other on Saturday and Sunday.

FuNDINg For STuDENTS, NoT For wAgE hIkES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

Williams Lake turns the big 83 Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor There was tea, goodies, lots of good company, Stampede royalty and contestants all at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin Thursday afternoon, and of course there was cake – it was the City’s 83rd birthday after all. “It’s a great opportunity to invite the community in to the museum,” said museum president, Sheila Wyse.

Northern Building Awards Prince George The nomination deadline for a celebration of the best in building in residential and commercial construction in Northern BC is fast approaching. March 30 is the date set for nominations to be sent in for the Northern Building Awards, set for April 26 at the Ramada Hotel in Prince George. It is a joint celebration sponsored by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association - Northern BC (CHBANBC), the Commercial Council of the B.C. Northern Real Estate Board (BCNREB), and the BC Construction Association North (BCCA-North) is also supporting the event, which will celebrate the best in building over the last two years. THE CHBANBC portion of the awards is for residential construction, modeled after the province-wide Georgie Awards. The BCNREB and BCCA-North portion is for commercial and industrial construction. Award nominations will be accepted from the region between

100 Mile House and Prince George, and Prince Rupert to Fort St. John. Fortis BC is also sponsoring the awards ceremony, which will also serve to kick off the annual CHBANBC trade show the next day. “We see this as a great opportunity to promote the construction industry as a whole throughout Northern B.C.,” says CHBANBC President Allen Creuzot. “Residential construction is a very important component of our economy, and we’ve been celebrating the building of the best homes for years now. “This event will hopefully take it to the next level, as we join with the commercial building sector to let everyone know about the quality of construction we are known for in this region.” Each organization will have its own set of categories for the awards. There are over two dozen CHBA-NBC award classifications, while there will be at least nine commer-

cial categories: Mixed Use, Community Seniors Housing, Multi Family, Community I n s t i t u t i o n , Commercial/ Retail, Industrial, Commercial Reno/ Restoration, Office, Hospitality, Affordable Housing and Commercial Green/ Energy Efficiency. There will also be a “Judge’s Choice” award for best of show. Nomination forms are available from both organizations. Nominations will close March 30, 2012, at 4 p.m. For CHBA-NBC awards, contact Mark Peil, Executive Officer at 250-563-3306, or email: mark@chbanorthernbc.ca. The association website is: www. chbanorthernbc.ca For Commercial entries, contact Mark MacDonald Toll Free at 1-866-758-2684 ext. 120, or email: mark@ businessvi.ca. Entry forms for both residential and commercial, and tickets to the awards night, are available at www.businesspc.ca, click on Events and 2012 Northern Building Awards.

Mayor Kerry Cook and lots of members of the community. “We have people come who have lived in Williams Lake for many years, and also those that are newer to town,” said Wyse. “We hope that they come for the (birthday celebration) and decide to come back again to have a look.” The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin was established in the late 1980’s and is currently home to the B.C. Cowboy Hall of Fame. “We have two floors of exhibits,” said Wyse. “And often people come for the birthday celebration and decide there’s so much to look at and they come back.” The museum is primarily focused on ranching and cowboys but Wyse said the museum holds a lot of

the City’s history that has accumulated over the last 83 years as an incorporated town as well as to before. Mayor Cook was on hand at the celebration to cut the birthday cake and mingle with community members who were out for the event. “We are so fortunate as a city to have wonderful volunteers who are so passionate about what they do,” said Cook. “It’s thanks to these volunteers that we have great events like this one.” Cook said Williams Lake has so much to be proud of, but most of all it’s the people who are the heart of the community. “It’s always important to know where we’ve come from,” said Cook. “Everyone should take the time to come walk through (the museum).”

HOROSCOPE Aries, kick back and let your fantasy world take over your conscious thoughts. You can use a little time lost in a land of utmost happiness this week. This is not the week to try to do everything solo, Taurus. Involve your friends and family members as much as possible. At the very least you’ll have a host of able bodies. Gemini, people are likely to offer you advice this week. While the advice might be unsolicited, take it into consideration and you might just be better for it.

It will soon be time to plant that herb garden Encore Column Now, I promise I won’t do a herb column next weekend, but here is just this one more, at least for a while. I couldn’t resist doing this because everywhere I go these days people are hoping that spring is here and gardening wont be too far away...many have that hope, however I suspect there is a bit of cabin fever in that feeling. When starting my herb garden for this year, I have selected different herbs to meet my culinary needs. Oregano; strong and pungent. Oregano

curries and in sausage meats. It is especially good with fish. Tarragon; chopped leaves can be used with chicken, fish, eggs, game and vegetables. I grew a lot of that tasty herb last season. It’s a classic ingredient for Béarnaise sauce… I also use it in vinegar and for salad dressings. Arugula; strong tasting spinach-like greens with a delicious nutty taste. I like spinach so I sometimes use arugula in a ham and egg dish or for stuffing a chicken breast. Italian Parsley; a versatile herb that can

be used in stuffing, in all meat, poultry and fish dishes, sauces of all kinds and dressings. Use chopped or whole in salads and whole as a garnish. Fresh parsley is easily available and is much better than dried. C i l a n t r o / Coriander; use as seed or leaf form for stew, curries, rice, chicken, cheese and eggs. Finely chopped leaves are the flavor often found in Mexican salsas and lots of Thai food recipes. I want to add Basil and Rosemary to my selection that I am now starting. I have Thyme, Savory, Dill and Chives

that thrive each year in my flower garden. So if everything does well this summer I should be in good ‘herb shape’ come next winter. Herbs and spices are the heart and soul of cooking and they give food inspiration, color and character. When using fresh herbs you should use two to three times more herbs than when they are dried. Crush dried herbs before using, as this will bring out their flavor. Store fresh herbs in water in the fridge or freeze them. Bye for now, happy gardening and Goood Cooking!

Leo, try to keep your cool this week, even if stress levels are rising and you can’t seem to get anything done. Maintain your composure and everything will work out. Virgo, expect to get a lot done this week. An extra hop in your step is enabling you to accomplish all your goals. Offer your help to Pisces when you get a free moment. Libra, focus on the things in life that provide you pleasure. This will help balance out anything that might be bothering you. You’ll find this balance is right up your alley.

What you desire and what you experience are starting to meld, Scorpio. Be sure that you position yourself correctly to maximize the benefits of this scenario.

Sagittarius, now is the time to reach for something bold and big. Think about any changes you can make that will involve a leap of faith and then get started on the goal. Carpicorn, encourage others to tackle a problem with a different mindset. Things are looking up for you, so don’t be afraid to offer some advice.

HUNDREDS CASH IN AT THE ROADSHOW IN WILLIAMS LAKE! 4 DAYS LEFT! By: Michael Ross Great Canadian Roadshow Staff Writer

After a successful start in Williams Lake, the show continues on

for 4 more days! So you better search through your attics and basements, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not evenknow it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold, and silver.

“We have noticed a substantial increase in the amountof precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at.” During our show in Midland, a woman came in with a jewelry box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewelry,” explained Cheryl Barnes, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for jewelry she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Cliff Edwards explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver

coming to the Roadshow,which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added,“ The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dustin basements and jewelry boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot! ” At another Roadshow event, a woman walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare. Roadshow consultant Raymond Flack explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She also had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. All in all, Roadshow customer Linda Donaldson was able to cash in with $4,500! “I’m so happy,” Linda explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford to renovate my kitchen.” Raymond Flack continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we

See you at the Show!

have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value.” Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. “I’m so happy,” Linda explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford to renovate my kitchen.” A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!
