But aside from the typical losses expected in the business, livestock producers have been hit lately with unusually high losses due to wolf predation in the Cariboo Chilcotin. “We are talking about significant economic losses -- hundreds of animals,” says Duncan Barnett, President of the Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association. The association and its 11 local communitybased affiliated associations just completed a round of spring meetings where stakeholders shared their industry concerns and discussed possible solutions. “We are trying to shift the focus from See WOLVES on Page 4

New Prosperity looking for renewed support Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor About 200 people in total showed up for Taseko Mine’s two open house informations sessions in Williams Lake Monday afternoon and evening. Host Brian Battison, vice president of corporate affairs for Taseko, said the event was meant to give the public access to the real facts about the mine project and a chance to review the company’s New Prosperity proposal which Battison said has been redesigned to the tune of $300M to save Fish Lake, a lake traditionally sensitive to local First Nations, and address other environmental concerns. The new proposal reduces disturbance to land and water habitat, reduces impact to navigation, provides greater protection for grizzly bears and reduces impact to First Nations use and cultural heritage, according to Taseko’s project description. “We have done what the federal government has asked us to do,” Battison said, referring the latest proposal which would see an open pit gold and copper mine developed 125 kilometres southwest of Williams Lake. The pro-

Brian Battison, vice president of Taseko Mines. posal will face a federal environmental review made up of a panel of three governmentappointed individuals, anticipated to arrive in Williams Lake late in the summer. “Yes, we expect approval.” Despite the new plan however, a handful of Tsilhqot’in First Nations were on hand at both events, drumming and respectfully showing their ongoing objection to the project which will likely remain to be one of the largest stumbling blocks for the mine. But Battison said he has also heard support from First Nations. “It would be false to believe all First Nations

are against the project ...There is a need for a brighter future, one with opportunity.” Battison showed two films during the open house, one showing what mined materials are used for in everyday life and another explaining exactly what New Prosperity would look like during its lifespan and after. Battison also took the opportunity to review the dollar figures (in the billions) generated locally, provincially and federally by Gilbraltar Mine and, Battison hopes, New Prosperity in the future. He said New Prosperity is currently the seventh largest undeveloped gold and copper deposit in the world. During construction and its 22 year lifespan, Battison said the mine will employ 3,000 people and provide 71,000 jobs and generate $786M in new

residential development and $1 billion in nonresidential construction alone. With the changes to the new proposal, Battison said Taseko has invested $1 billion into New Prosperity. Battison ended by saying New Prosperity is an opportunity for great economic opportunity “without significant risk to the environment” and that he hopes the federal review panel will give it the “approval it has earned and deserved.” “There is too much potential value for too many people to just walk away ... We will see this through to the finish.” Battison and a team of mine experts were on hand to answer the public’s questions after the talk. He encouraged the public to voice their support for New Prosperity when the review panel comes to town.

Region gains provincial predator control officer Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor With the majority of B.C.’s wolf/livestock conflicts occurring in the Cariboo Chilcotin, it is welcomed news that a dedicated provincial predator position has landed right here in Williams Lake. “We are very fortunate that this position has come to Williams Lake,” said Conservation Officer Service Sgt. Darrell Ashworth. Last month, Ashworth was awarded the responsibility of being the new Provincial Predator Conflict Prevention

WOLVES from Page 1 wolves to protection of the herd.” That emphasis on herd protection has seen ranchers do their part by paying particular attention to good husbandry practices to avoid trouble with predators. Many ranchers in the area have also taken trapping courses to manage wolves themselves on private land as well as kill verification courses.

killed the livestock, usually by identifying and documenting the puncture marks and bruising left behind, is necessary for any compensation claims. “It’s really important we have some accurate facts, not just blame the wolves,” he says. Barnett says government compensation for lost livestock is critical. “Ranchers like to say predators are the Queen’s livestock. We feel if there’s a management problem with certain wildlife, the government should take responsibility.” Though

tor conflicts, we are all far better off and further ahead.” Ashworth said the severity of the wolf predation problem as it pertains to livestock has been on constantly increasing over the past ten years provincially and most noticeably in the Cariboo Chilcotin, with producers suffering losses as high as 30 per cent. The provincial government has attempted to reduce the conflicts by lifting hunting restrictions on wolves in the region, issuing permits to private fee-

for-service contractors, as well as encouraging producers to take trapping and kill verification courses to help themselves. “The producers should be recognized for the great efforts they’ve put forward in assisting themselves. They are doing a great job.” Two areas hardest hit by predator losses for producers have been the Peace region in the northeast and right here in the Cariboo Chilcotin. Direct measures taken so far include the

removal of more than 100 wolves between the Peace and Cariboo Chilcotin since last June, with approximately 80 per cent of those taken here, Ashworth said. With calving season full swing it is expected that producers will be looking to protect their investments and Ashworth said the C.O. Service is ready to help. “We have been fielding lots of calls and I anticipate we’ll be receiving a heck of a lot more if you go by last year’s numbers.”

time will also be spent coordinating, establishing or maintaining stakeholder committees focused on predator/livestock management, and attending quarterly meetings with folks such as the Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association and its 11 local branches. “It strengthens the relationship between the producers and the C.O. Service and it improves the communication between us as well,” Ashworth said. “If we can all work together in a united front to reduce preda-

predation problems to assist the producers.  We never stopped assisting the producers with predators, but we are just getting back into assisting them on the wolf front.” Ashworth’s role, which will have him on the road a lot, is to provide advice and mentoring to officers dealing with wildlife conflicts and also to build relationships with stakeholders such as ranchers to share information and discuss some of the problems facing producers. He said much of his

compensation doesn’t come close to covering the loss, Barnett said it is an important part in holding the government accountable for properly managing wildlife resources, which he believes is the key to a long term solution. “We manage our herds. The government needs to put resources into wildlife management activities,” he says. “Just going out and getting rid of wolves isn’t going to solve our problems. They have a place in the environment and a purpose too.” Barnett says much more research and studies of area wolves are needed. “I don’t think we are understanding or addressing the underlying problem ... Wolf behaviour is changing. We need to understand why.” At the government’s urging, producers formed the Cariboo Regional Agriculture Wildlife Advisory Committee in 2009 to identify mitigation

strategies which may address local predator problems. Over the course of those three years around the table, Barnett says ranchers determined there was a need for more inventory and study of changing habitats and behaviours of wolves and even deer and how that impacts the public. They also had ideas for hazing studies with deer to make more of an effort to keep wildlife wild. But just as the group completed their plan late in 2011, funding ended to actually do the work, Barnett says. “Now we’ve got this great plan but no funding. That is very frustrating and disappointing.” On a day-to-day basis the government, through the C.O. Service, is a rancher’s first line of defense, Barnett says. “I think the C.O.s in Williams Lake have tried really hard to work with the industry. From the Association’s perspective, they’re real-

ly making an effort to work with us.” Barnett said his neighbors had theirgrandaughter's 4H calf killed by a pack of wolves last fall in a small pasture right by their house. After verifying that the animal was killed by wolves, C.O.s were able to trap four wolves from that pack. “This is an excellent example of the role C.O.s have. The elderly grandparents are not in a position to go wolf trapping themselves. (However) for a young rancher out in the Chilcotin, getting their trapping license and dealing with the problem directly may be a more effective option.” Barnett says now is time for provincial leaders in government to step up to the plate with wildlife inventory and research to determine where the wolf problem lies, speculating the animals may be responding to impacts to the natural landscape such as increased road access and human activity in wilderness areas. “The reason we’re so involved here is because we have been so impacted,” Barnett says. “We’re happy to work with government.” And with cattle prices approaching record highs, as ranchers will see at this weekend’s annual bull sale, a long term solution can’t come soon enough.

Program provides Cinderella moment for grads Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor A young women’s experience getting ready for their graduation should be filled with good memories, not with worry and stress over how to afford everything that goes along with it. In comes the Glass Slipper program, which up until this year was lying dormant. Through the program young women and even young men have a resource at their fingertips allowing them the opportunity to borrow an outfit to wear to Dry Grad. “I was overhearing teens talking about grad and starting to panic about how they would afford everything,” said Lora Fairbrother, who initiated the rebirth of the Glass Slipper program by bringing it forward at a Communities that Care meeting in January.

Courtney Taylor Photo

There is a lot of work that goes into getting a project like the Glass Slipper one of the ground and student volunteers Chloe Lavoie,16, Charlotte Duggan,15 and Nicole Grant,18, all put in a lot of work over the last six weeks to make the project a reality. Fairbrother works for School District 27 as well as the Boys and

Girls Club, and it was with help from youth at the Boys and Girls

Club that they were able to get the Glass Slipper Boutique up and running so quickly. “For six weeks we worked non stop,” said Fairbrother. “We cleaned, organized, and painted.”   “The way the boutique works is girls, or young men, call the Boys and Girls Club to set up an appointment and I or one of the other volunteers will help pick a full outfit,” said Fairbrother. “All the dresses were in storage, and surprisingly there are plenty to chose from that are beautiful.” She said some of the dresses are not in the best condition, but they will have a sewing room where the girls can get creative and piece together a new dress from old ones. Some of girls who helped from the Boys and Girls club were Charlotte Duggan,

Several cases keep lakecity RCMP busy The Williams Lake RCMP Detachment is currently investigating three reports of inappropriate touching by a male in residential areas in the vicinity of Western Avenue, Pigeon Avenue and Boundary Street that occurred last week. Staff Sgt. LeBeuf said there have been no solid leads in the investigation so far. “As a result of the releases, we have had a few people come forward with information, but nothing that has led to an arrest,” said Staff Sgt. LeBeuf. The first incident took place on the April 9 2012, at approximately 6:00 p.m. on Western

Avenue. The offender was described as a Caucasian male approximately 16 years of age. He has shoulder length black curly hair and was wearing white shoes, blue jeans and a blue t-shirt. On the April 11 2012, between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. in the vicinity of Pigeon Avenue and Boundary Street two more incidents of inappropriate sexual touching took place involving two adult females. In this case the offender was described by one victim as Caucasian and by the other victim as possibly being non-white but with a fair complexion. The suspect is between 16 and 18 years of age,

black straight ear length hair. A distinctive feature of the suspect in one of these incidents is that he had braces on his teeth. The police are encouraging everyone to be aware of their surrounding and to call the police should they witness any suspicious activities. Arson suspected In the early morning of Monday, April 16, the Williams lake RCMP responded to a suspicious fire complaint at 398 First Avenue North in Williams Lake. Residents called the fire department shortly before 2:00 a.m. after hearing noises outside their residence and discovering that the side

of the building was on fire. The fire was quickly extinguished and there were no injuries to anyone involved. The RCMP believe the fire was set deliberately set and deemed to be an arson, police believe that this residence was intentionally targeted and that this was not a random attack. “Witnesses have been tough to come by,” said Staff Sgt. Rick LeBeuf. “We will be continuing the investigation.’ The Williams Lake RCMP is asking anyone with information about who may be responsible for this offence to please contact the detachment at 250-392-6211 or call Crime Stoppers.

Nicole Grant and Chloe Lavoie. They all think the program is a great resource for teens to have when grad is approaching. “I wore jeans to my boyfriend’s dry grad a couple years ago,” said Grant. “It’s great that the program is up and running again.” The girls were also impressed with the choices of the dresses. “I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but there is such a good variety in all shapes and

colours,” said Lavoie. And as Fairbrother put it, ‘a beautiful dress is a beautiful dress’ – and although the Glass Slipper program has plenty of dresses there are others items still needed. Thing such as  hangers with hooks in top, a vacuum, dishes, cutlery, a broom, dustpan, sewing machine and table, formal wear for men and ladies, display case for jewelry and many other household and other items.

A truly western weekend ahead

Williams Lake will be full of cowboys and ranchers this weekend, as Williams Lake becomes the hub for all things cowboy with the 75th Annual Bull Show and Sale and the 22nd Indoor Rodeo this weekend. To someone who is about as familiar with all things cowboy as a fish is with sand, I really had no idea the importance of the Bull sale and why so many people come from so far away. I set out to educate myself a little and did a little research; seeing as I grew up here I really feel I should have

a better grasp of rodeo lingo and everything else associated with the Cariboo. I really am ashamed to tell people, not only can I not ride a horse but I have never even been on a horse. And as for the bull sale, I really didn’t have a clue to as why bulls needed to be sold. And so began my research, if you can call it that. I had an interview with a man named Wilf Smith this week, and let me tell you he knows his stuff. I learned that this particular    bull sale is the larg-

est in British Columbia and that ranchers come from all over the province as well as Alberta and Saskatchewan because of the quality of the animals. I learned that many ranchers follow the bloodlines of their bulls and choose what bloodlines make up their herds. After my talk with Wilf I feel a tiny bit more educated about bulls.  It’s a drop in the bucket of knowledge, but with this job in this town a week never goes by without me learning something new. Another tidbit of info I learned

this week, is that our indoor rodeo is the only one in B.C – how cool is that?  Little old Williams Lake continues to be special. Well with all this rodeoing going on and talk of all things cowboy – I really need to work on my Cariboo knowledge and skill including learning how to ride a horse. It’s now up there on my list of things to do – I am a Cariboo girl so it’s the least I should be able to do, right? Make sure you take in the rodeo or the bull sale or both and enjoy our western heritage.

Do you support New Prosperity? Taseko Mines hosted a series of open houses this week in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. According to Brian Battison, the event was organized to present factual information about the New Prosperity proposal and answer any questions the public had. A video presentation outlined the nuts and bolts of the new proposal, showing how Taseko plans to save Fish Lake while going forward with the mine. The video explained that the Fish Creek watershed is self contained, meaning its water levels are maintained by

rain and runoff. To offer the simplest description, Taseko plans to develop the open pit 500 metres in front of the lake where it drains into Fish Creek and cut off the water flow out of the lake during the life of the mine. Water levels and quality of Fish Lake would be monitored and maintained by the mine, then the flow reestablished once the mining is finished. Judging by the video, it would appear the landscape would look different a hundred years after everything was said and done, but not necessarily bad, just different. While the informa-

tion was interesting enough, the biggest question not asked Monday night was where were all the people? What does that mean? Have we lost our zeal to support or oppose the mine, the seventh largest undeveloped gold and copper deposit in the world, or are we all just waiting for the federal review panel to voice our strong opinions. If you believe Battison, Williams Lake’s future depends on the mine being developed. If you believe the Tsilhqot’in National Government, the new proposal is worse than

the first. Whatever you believe, it looks like you – the public – are going to be asked to choose a side again. Perhaps we’re all a little hesitant to take a stand on an issue which will once again pit neighbour against neighbour, friend against friend and family against family. Whether we’ve asked for it or not it’s coming. Taskeo wants us to voice our support for the mine, Battison said as much at Monday’s open house. So, get yourselves informed. The federal review panel is scheduled to arrive in the lakecity by late summer.

A bedtime story every parent should read Once upon a time there was a little boy who wouldn’t stay in bed. He had been having nightmares, so a dozen times a night would appear at the foot of his parent’s bed. This went on for months. Of course his parents tried the usual methods - hot milk, hugs and prayers, checking under the bed for “alligators,” and bedtime stories. The parents worked hard at the problem but it continued. And talking produced no great revelations. Then a friend of theirs went to a parenting course and

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett returned with this guideline for children’s problems: 1. “The person who owns the problem should be working on it.” 2. “Take care of yourself.” 3. “Take care of yourself.”

4. “Take care of yourself.” Needing a new approach, the exhausted mother told the boy: “Son, I am tired. I need a full night’s sleep tonight so I can think clearly, make good decisions and not be crabby tomorrow. Here’s what I need you to do. You may stay up all night if you like, but because I need it quiet, you will need to be in your room. You may have the light on or off, and you may play with your toys or do whatever you like there, as long as you’re quiet. If you feel things are getting a little noisy,

please shut the door so I can sleep.” The child went upstairs to gather his favourite toys. A few minutes later his mother arrived to “tuck him in” and to make sure he knew this was not a ‘consequence.’ The little fellow was in bed sound asleep, with the light on. And he never showed up all night long! In the morning, when he came beaming to the breakfast table, his mother raised her eyebrows in mock surprise, and said, “Mercy son, you scared me - what on earth happened last night? I never saw you all night long!”

The boy just grinned, and his mom decided to let the little winner have his moment. She grinned back, and went about her work. The next evening, she tried to make it to his room more quickly, to make certain he wasn’t feeling punished. But when she went upstairs, he was already asleep, with the light OFF! And of course she slept like a baby. In the morning, when the boy came downstairs, she couldn’t wait! “What happened?” she asked. “I came to tuck you in, and you were asleep again!” She offered

an exaggerated swoon, telling him he was really scaring her this time! He softly replied, “Mom, I figured out something. If I went to bed right away, closed my eyes right away, and never opened them again until morning, I would never know it had been dark.” Problem solved - permanently, by a 7-year-old! Sure, there are times to intervene for safety or character’s sake. And obedience needs to be learned just to live in society. But perhaps a little too often we hover like helicopters or bark orders like drill ser-

geants. In doing so we send the twin messages of “You can’t manage this alone,” and “You need me to think for you.” Thus we remove the opportunity for success. Might a different message produce different results? “I have lots of confidence in you. I think you can handle this. Let me know what you decide.” Perhaps then the whole world would sleep better, not just me. For approaches that produce thought and personal growth in children, I am indebted to www.loveandlogic.com.

Spring Rite of men comes into effect All guys are allowed to watch the Canucks, Detroit, Boston or any other National Hockey League team until they fail to go on to the next round. Men are also allowed to grab their favourite brewski or cocktail to view such games... unless they start at ten o’clock in the morning. The Canucks are having their problems and fully 70 percent of folks in a pole say they believe they won’t advance to the next round of play. It didn’t take very long for fair weather fans to abandon the Nucks, and to use vocabulary regarding goaltender Roberto Luongo, that would make a logger blush. I suspect the same doubting Thomases who gave up on the Lions last fall after five straight losses to start the season, are

Contemplating Ken with Ken Wilson

amongst those who are now giving up on the Canucks. The amount of overtime games this year is a testament to how closely aligned teams are that toil in the NHL ‘extra season’. The first round of the playoffs have so many teams competing for the Stanley Cup and it seems that because so many of those games are televised by the CBC, TSN and U.S stations, this involves some serious couch time. Some

guys can get up to 9 hours straight of playoff hockey in one day. By the time the teams get to the semi finals, there is not as much hockey being played but still it can take some down time in your favourite chair or couch. Other things have to take a second seat at this time of the year. Maybe the tires won’t get changed in the first round, perhaps the back porch won’t get cleaned or the BBQ won’t get spruced up. Have faith my lady, it will get done next week. You have to procrastinate when the National League Hockey playoffs come around ever year. It is a rite of spring, after all. Just recently a bus driver in Vancouver was hit many times by an individual identified as a First Nations per-

son. Many folks were upset at the conditional term sentenced by the judge. They believed he should have received jail time for this horrific assault on the driver. Critics, which includes just about everyone, it seems say that Mr. Louie got away with assaulting the bus driver thanks to his aboriginal ancestry. So there are two claims being advanced here: First, that Louie received an inappropriately light sentence for his crime, and second, that Canadian law supports a two-tiered, racist approach to sentencing, with aboriginals receiving lighter sentences than nonaboriginals for the same crimes. Judge Walker said she is required by law to take in Mr. Louie’s aboriginal ancestry into consideration when sentencing

you get the feelings these floors help to emulate in a home decor. In wire brushed flooring, the soft portion of the wood is removed to expose the grain and bring enhanced definition to each plank. Beautiful knots and dramatic oak character marks further emphasize depth and texture of wire brushed flooring. To keep up with the demand for wire-brushed floors, manufacturers such as Mercier Wood Flooring, one of North America's leading hardwood flooring manufacturers, has developed an innovative wire-brushed collection featuring varying stain colours in matte finishes that respect the natural beauty of red oak and its rustic look.

Featured in Mercier's Heritage collection, the wire brushed Red Oak line features colours such as "Graphite" and the new "Macchiato." Each stain brings its own distinct personality. With its almost-black brown that perfectly highlights the wood's character and texture, Macchiato plays the authenticity and warmth card, explained Collin. "Whether it is combined with a sober style, a bold design, brightly colored objects, or a monochrome environment, this chameleon color is bound to turn heads." Graphite, is a very dark brown stain that looks almost black. "A deep color which makes any room looks naturally elegant," he added.

Red Oak Heritage, Red Oak Macchiato. "Graphite gives warmth and atmosphere to your home with style and originality." Graphite offers versatility to your decor as Collin explains

it can be used in a chic contemporary decor or in a more traditional setting. These new colours are available in solid, engineered and LOC ver-

sions in varying widths. More information on the latest trends in wood flooring is available at www.mercierwoodflooring.com.

repainting. For everyone else, it's usually best to take a few color cards home to view in the space you want to paint. Once there, you should follow a few time-tested rules. First, when evaluating color options, conceal all the colors on the card except for the one you are considering. By isolating the color, you'll get a better idea of how the room will look in a particular hue. Second, evaluate the color both in daylight and at night when all the light is artificial. You may be surprised how different a color can look when lighting conditions change. (Paint colors usually look darker at night, in shadow, and on cloudy days.) Third, consider when you most often use the room. If you are painting a breakfast area, be sure you like the way the color looks in morning light; but if you're painting a bedroom, it's more important that the color be pleasing under artificial light. Fourth, be aware that color tends to be more intense on a large

area than a small one. A color that looks just right on a color card may be too dark or too bold when applied to your walls. For safety's sake, move down one degree of intensity on the card and choose a slightly lighter tint or shade. Finally, if you are still not certain of your choice of color, buy a small quantity of paint and apply a couple of large swatches to the walls. Live with the color for a day or two. You'll soon know if you missed the mark or nailed it. One final tip: Regardless of the color you choose, the Paint Quality Institute recommends that you use top quality 100 percent acrylic latex interior paint for all of your projects. This advanced type of paint goes on evenly, typically "hides" the color below in just a single coat, has very little odor, and is very durable. By using it, your beautiful new paint job will last for years. For more advice on affordable interior painting, visit www. paintquality.com.

The hazards of lead paint and older windows (MS) -- If your home was built before 1978 and you still have the original windows, it's time to seriously consider replacing your windows -- especially if you have young children or a pregnant person living in the home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the routine opening and closing of windows in homes built prior to 1978 can disturb lead-based paint around the windows, causing paint dust and chips to be released into the air. These lead particles are so dangerous that the EPA now requires contractors to be trained and certified before they can perform any renovation, repair or painting projects that may have previously applied lead-based paint. "Research indicates that the everyday activ-

After older, lead-painted windows were replaced, this family now enjoys a healthier living environment with their energy-efficient vinyl windows. ity of opening and closing windows creates friction that then allows lead dust to enter the air," says Rick Nevin, a consultant to the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH). "This dust is invisible to the naked eye, yet it can contaminate the home and

Cork is a chic (NC)—The trend to bring nature and its elements indoors has inspired a new trend in flooring. Over the past few years, cork has become a popular flooring choice due to its chic-unique aesthetics and environmental benefits. The Right Choice for Your Home Cork is warm as well as inviting, and complements a variety of decorating styles and elements, including all wood furniture finishes. It's the perfect choice no matter your current decor or taste. Whether you prefer a casual, modern or relaxed country look, cork will accentuate any style or space. Cork floors have been used for decades, traditionally been used in schools and libraries for its acoustic benefits. Redesigned for today's consumer, cork is making its way into mainstream living rooms, bedrooms and in particular, kitchens due to its natural beauty, com-

fort and warmth. While you'll love the look of cork, you'll absolutely adore the feel of it. Cork is 50% air, a dense cushion that insulates against cold and comforts every footstep. With a cork floor underfoot, you'll never want to wear shoes or socks indoors again. Industry tests for wear have also shown that cork endures like hardwood. Add to this its ability to absorb sound, and cork is beautiful, smart and tough to its core. The Right Choice for the Environment Cork offers one more comfort—peace of mind for the environmentally conscious. Cork comes from bark and gently harvested from living trees. While harvests occur often, the same tree is used only once every nine years. The time-honoured tradition, which includes hand tools, never destroys the tree, making cork an entirely renewable resource.

expose residents to this harmful substance. "Young children, whose developmental skills and brain functions are subjected to the lead dust, can be especially negatively impacted. Children can absorb the lead dust from crawling on the floor where the dust settles. Toddlers put their hands in their mouths ... and after playing on the floor near a window, they can easily transfer the lead dust into their mouths. The ingested lead travels through the bloodstream to a child's developing brain, causing many types of neurobehavioral damage." Nevin relates that the most common problem with lead in paint is not that a child is eat-

ing paint chips -- it's that the child may be exposed every day to unseen contaminated lead dust particles that have settled in household dust. The leadcontaminated dust is often connected with the operation of the window. According to Nevin, one of the most important long-term investments a homeowner can make for the overall safety of a family is to replace older windows, using the EPAapproved lead safe renovation guidelines. "If you live in a home built before 1978, and you have single-pane windows, replace them now," says Nevin. "This is one of the only ways to reduce lead risks for

your family. Make sure to use only a contractor that is certified in leadsafe work practices and strongly consider the use of Energy Star® qualified windows, like the vinyl replacement windows offered by Simonton Windows. These windows are a healthy choice for replacing older single-pane units. They're energy-efficient and a good value for the investment." "At Simonton, we advocate that replacing older windows coated with lead-based paint with vinyl windows is a sensible step for homeowners who want to create a healthier home environment," says Gary Pember with Simonton Windows. "We believe Rick's research substantiates the replacement of all windows coated with lead based paint as a way to dramatically help reduce lead dust within that home. As such, taking the next step of installing durable, energy-efficient

vinyl windows offers homeowners peace-ofmind along with energy savings in the home." Nevin explains that homeowners need to understand there are four key steps to completing a "lead-safe window replacement strategy" for the home. "First, replace all single-pane windows with Energy Star® qualified windows," says Nevin. "Second, stabilize any significantly deteriorated paint. Third, perform specialized cleaning to remove any leadcontaminated dust. And finally, perform dust wipe tests to confirm

the absence of lead dust hazards after the clean up." Nevin, the NCHH and the New York University School of Medicine have been awarded a National Institute of Health challenge grant for "Preventing Child Residential Lead Exposure by Window Replacement." The project includes the launch of a "Windows of Opportunity" website to promote the many benefits of leadsafe window replacement. For additional information, visit www. simonton.com/leadsafe.

Factory Direct Furniture finds a new home Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Not wanting to see a good business leave the community, Karen and Tom Alphonse purchased Factory Direct and now are open for business in their new location.  “We really didn’t want to see a product of such quality leave Williams Lake,” said Karen. Both raised in Williams Lake, Karen ran a health business in town and Tom worked in forestry before the two decided to take on the furniture store.  “We raised our families here,” said Karen. “This is really going to be a family run business.” She said their daughter Andrea Ramsay and son-in-law TJ Frizzi are apart of the business in any way they can, with Ramsay working there part-time and Frizzi helping out when he can. The Alphonse’s said

Tom and Karen Alphonse make sure the local business Factory Direct doesn’t leave Williams Lake, by reopening the business March 8 at 510 North Broadway Ave - just below Spectra Power Sports at the top of Broadway Ave. when the opportunity to purchase the already existing business arose, they decided it was the right opportunity for them and re-opened at 510 North Broadway Avenue March 8. “The response so far

has been great,” said Karen. “It’s definitely been a learning experience for us, but we believe so much in the product that it is worth it.” Factory Direct Furniture carries qual-

ity solid wood furniture, made in B.C. and sold at affordable prices. “Our mission is to provide excellent customer service, continue offering quality B.C. wood products that are

healthier for us and our environment and pleasing to the customers at affordable prices,” said Karen. “That sums up everything we intend to do.” Tom said he has actually had the chance to go down to Lower Mainland where most of the furniture is made and watch production. “I had a chance to meet our suppliers and now know them on a first name basis,” said Tom. They both say they will continue offering the same great product and have also added latex mattresses to the mix. “We really want to see our furniture business expand into more B.C. made products and even more local if we can get there,” said Tom. The two say their long-term goal is success just like any other business and hope to continue to move forward in a positive

direction. “We want to be a part of our ever growing community,” said Tom. “We want to support the community and have it support us.” Karen and Tom will have booths at the Indoor Rodeo this week and the Home Show the first week-

end in May to try and reach as many people as they can. “We just want to let people know Factory Direct hasn’t left the community,” said Karen. The two would also like to thank the Hughes for all their support over the last couple of months.

Concrete Fitness Health 60-day health challenge winners Just over 60 days ago willing participants embarked on a personal fitness journey with the help of Concrete Fitness to help improve their own personal fitness and learn to live an overall more healthy life. Meghann Brinoni, is this year’s winner of the Concrete Fitness 60-day Health Challenge, runner-up was Linda Rowley and third place Alanna Sylvester. Brinoni has won a one-year membership to the gym for herself, a six-month membership she can give to someone else and $500. “I really wanted to bring myself to a new level of fitness, and

thanks to Kim I feel that I have,” said Brinoni. Kim Colgate, a personal trainer at Concrete Fitness, worked with all the participants in the challenge with work-out plans as well as eating plans to coordinate to give the participants an all over healthy change to their lifestyles. “Everyone worked really hard, and I am so proud of these three girls for all their work,’ said Colgate. Brinoni said Colgate is an excellent trainer, helping her maintain her goals of increasing her strength and endurance. “She showed me how to train even

with a minor knee injury, which allowed me to continue working towards my goals,” said Brinoni. Rowley, who finished second, said she is extremely pleased with her results and coming in second is just fantastic. “I wanted to learn how to work out safer – my goal going into the challenge was to do better on my final fitness test than my first, which I achieved.” Rowley said she

wanted to enter the challenge to get fit for her children, and she said Colgate taught her a lot –both with various workout sessions and with her meal planning. “I am feeling awesome and really happy,” Brian Doering said the Concrete Fitness Health Challenge has been such a positive experience for all participants the last two years that they have decided to offer their challenge for free to a limited number of deserving

people who otherwise could not afford it. “We are encouraging people who have the desire and drive to make a positive change in their lifestyle to bring in a letter that tells their story,” said Doering. He said it doesn’t have to be you but someone you think deserves the opportunity, all submissions will be confidential. Chosen applicants will receive free gym access and biweekly personal training for 60 day.

A winning BBBS clothing drive Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Big Brothers and Big Sisters are promoting a clothing drive at the local high schools with the chance to win a $500 shopping spree at Cariboo Ski Source for Sports. “Students are encouraged to bring a grocery sized bag of clothing, and soft goods to school during the drive,” said Sam Numsen, who is a BBBS Board member and one of the main organizers of the clothing drive. “For each bag they bring in, they receive one entry into the draw for the shopping spree.” Numsen said the clothing drives are a way to promote not only the Purple Bin program, but the Big Brothers and Big Sister program as well. “We’re doing the

CCSAR members complete hover entry and exit training Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Roughly 15 members of the Central Cariboo Search and Rescue team participated in hover entry and exist training Saturday afternoon under the guidance of helicopter pilot Kelly Croswell from Frontline Helicopters Ltd. The group was out at Springhouse Airpark from about 1 to 3 p.m. and despite the chilly wind they worked swiftly to get through the training quickly and safely. “Each member will have the chance to practice a dry run with the helicopter on the ground as many times as they feel necessary,” said CCSAR Chief Allen Shaad. “They will then need to complete three entries and exits

as the helicopter hovers a foot or three off the ground to be certified.” Croswell said the training they completed is necessary for Canadian Aviation Regulations, and those who received the training this weekend are now certified to complete hover exits and entries when needed. “It went very well,” said Croswell. “It was windy, but it was steady and didn’t bother us too much.” Croswell said the members of the CCSAR complete an hour and a half of classroom training and then their three entries/exits in order to be certified. He said he completes the training about once a year to stay current.

Bowl for Kids’ Sake huge success Hundreds of wacky dressed bowlers took over the Cariboo Bowling Lanes over the weekend for the Big Brothers and Big Sister’s Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake. “We raised $25,000, and all the money stays in Williams Lake to fund local children’s programs through the BBBS,” said Lorraine Levitt, BBBS Executive Director in Williams Lake. The top fundraiser this year was Trish Moore and she won a stay at the Echo Valley Ranch and Spa, other prize winners were the Royal Bank team for being the most enthusiastic, and Saveon Foods for Best Dressed. The theme for this year was ‘Around the World’ and saw many teams from local businesses dressing in up in a wide variety of costumes, the teams from Save on Foods won for their wacky potato-themed costumes. Many other prizes were given out throughout the weekend by emcees, including Geoff Bourdon, based on fun world trivia. “The weekend went phenomenally well,” said Levitt. “It was a great time, another awesome year.”

Ready to ride in the ’boo Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor With the last of the snow disappearing from area trails last week, it’s safe to say mountain biking season has arrived! “All the trails are good to go on all sides of town,” says Mark Savard, local bike storeowner and mountain biking enthusiast/ advocate. Savard and pal Thomas Schoen were out walking the trails on the Fox Mountain trail network volunteering their time doing annual trail maintenance on one of the city’s most popular legal trails. Williams Lake boasts more than 300 kilometres of singletrack trails on both Crown and private land in the area that attracts bikers from around the world, Savard says. “We are a global destination,” he says. “This time of year, we are one of the hot spots because our trails are dry earlier than

places like Smithers.” Something bikers can look forward to this year is a full rebuild of the popular Westsyde trail Snakes ‘n Ladders, which will happen throughout the summer while the trail will remain open. Important dates to mark on your calendars include, May 10 when the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium will bring in the biking video

premier of  Strength in Numbers which will show at the Gibraltar Room at 7 p.m. The first festival to kick off the season will be the Peel Out on May 19 and 20, which is a two-day family biking event taking in trails on Fox Mountain and the Westsyde as well as a bike jump competition at the Boitanio Bike Park. That festival will be

followed by the everpopular annual Peddle by the Puddle, a six hour enduro mountain biking event which attracts riders from across the province and includes a youth event. The Peddle by the Puddle is set to take place Sunday, June 10 this year. For more biking info for our region, check out ridethecariboo.ca.

75th Williams Lake Bull Show and Sale BULLS from Page 1 and the fact they still get evaluated by a sifting committee, those numbers could change. “The 75th Annual Williams Lake Bull Show and Sale is bigger than other sales,” said Smith. “It’s an all breeds sale, and people come specifically for the bloodlines of bulls that are here. Smith said overall, this show and sale differs because of its high standards for quality and condition of bulls” Another attraction of the Williams Lake 75th Annual Bull Show and Sale is the hospitality night on Thursday, said Smith. “The buyers and the seller seem to really like to get together after the show,” he said. The bulls will be shown and judged on Thursday in the ring at 1:00 or earlier in the pen show, with a Grand Champion chosen for each breed, and on Friday the bulls are sold to the highest bidder. Salmon Arm rancher Neil Turner of Sunnybrae Farms has been bringing bulls to sell here for the past

Wilf Smith. 35 years, with three Hereford bulls arriving Monday night weighing in at more than 2,000 pounds awaiting sale. “I take what I can get,” Turner said of what he’s expecting for a price. “They’re not coming home with me, that’s for sure.” Prices are anticipated to be higher this year due to the upturn in the cattle market. Turner has a long family history with the Williams Lake Bull Sale. His father, Charles Turner started raising Herefords in 1929 and selling them in Williams Lake when it took a week to get the animals to sale by freight train, which

back then was paid for by the government to promote the breeding of purebreds. Of course, the stockyards have since moved from the tracks along the lake to its new location at 4665 Cattle Drive boasting state-ofthe-art facilities on a 20-acre parcel of land. These days approximately 40,000 to 50,000 head of butcher and feeder cattle are sold at the stockyards annually. The Williams Lake Bull Sale Association, a non-profit society, organizes the event and everyone is welcome to attend.

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor This weekend the Cariboo Memorial Complex will be transformed for the 22nd Annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo, and long time competitor and local rancher Allison Everett says she’s ready to rodeo. “It’s become such a tradition in its short time, and to me as the first rodeo of the year it’s exciting,” said Everett. She has been competing in the Indoor Rodeo since it began, and has been on the Board of Directors for more than 20 years. She grew up in Maple Ridge, always around horses, and moved to the Cariboo in 1975 at the age of 10 when her parents bought a ranch at 150 Mile House. “We still live at the ranch along with my dad – I grew up in this ranching lifestyle, riding horses,” she said. “It’s all I know.” Everett competes in various events one of which is team barrel racing –an event her mother competed in also, “My mother died in a rodeo accident in 1979,” said Everett. “It was hard, but my sister

and I continued to ride and compete and now so does my husband and son.” Everett insists that although she has experienced some tragedy when it comes to rodeos, it’s a fun lifestyle and one she enjoys very much. As for the Indoor Rodeo and its origins, Everett said it began out of a group of friends wanting to provide an amateur rodeo that differed from the Stampede. “It’s special because it’s the only indoor rodeo in B.C. and rain or shine we can rodeo.” Along with Everett, her husband Rob and eight-year-old son Brock also compete. “After this weekend we have two free weekends and then we’re gone competing at one, or most times two, rodeos a weekend until the third week of September,” she said. “It’s our lifestyle, I grew up living the ranching lifestyle – I didn’t know any different.” She said this year Brock is competing in Pee Wee barrel racing as well as singing with her dad, Doug White, on horseback for the open-

ing ceremony. “At first when the idea of singing came up he was a little hesitant, but as soon as I said on horseback he was all for it,” said Everett. The Indoor Rodeo gets started Friday eve-

ning with doors opening at 5 p.m. and goes Saturday and Sunday. Make sure you stop by their office on the upper level of Boitanio Mall to pick up tickets to the rodeo and barn dance.

Forestry training program means jobs for the North Thirty people in Northern British Columbia have begun a five-week training program to learn the skills necessary to work as log or chip

truck drivers and heavy equipment operators (HEO) in the forestry industry. Aimed at helping participants to secure permanent

employment, this program is part of a new Labour Market Sector Solutions project with the Central Interior Logging Association. The Forest Industry

Readiness Skills Training (FIRST) program is currently piloting in Prince George, where there is the highest demand for this type of training.

It consists of in-class training on topics like forestry operations and safety. Afterwards, students head out to various employers in the province for four weeks

of workplace training in truck driving and operating heavy equipment. Due to the demand for skilled workers in this field, students

who successfully complete the program will have the opportunity to continue employment with one of the project’s industry partners.

Spring cleaning:

Top tips to freshen up your ride

By Carter Jung (NC)—Ah, springtime. The days are getting longer, leaves are

starting to sprout, and the great thaw begins. With this shift in weather comes the promise of

warm summer driving and the time to prep your favorite ride for the road. You should begin by washing the exterior of your vehicle, and be sure to clean underneath to remove the corrosive salt, chemicals and grime that build up from winter driving. Use a high pressure hose, paying close attention to wheel wells and bumpers. Next, have your tires changed and rotated to ensure best performance and safety on the roads. While winter tires work best in the snow, they can accelerate and brake poorly and offer reduced tread life on dry asphalt. Spring is the best time

to swap back to your performance–oriented summer or all–season tires, storing your winter set for later. Just like your tires, the fluids in your vehicle need to be checked each spring to ensure proper engine performance throughout the seasons. Chances are the radiator in your vehicle uses an extended–life antifreeze coolant to prevent it from freezing. Check the coolant level and quality, and consider flushing the radiator if necessary. Most vehicles require fresh coolant every 240,000 km. While you're at it, be sure to check your oil and top up the rest of

your fluids. The most common grade of engine oil in Canada is 5W30 which should perform well under both winter and summer driving conditions. Consult your owner's manual for the recommended grade and quality of oil for your vehicle, and perform an oil and oil filter change at the recommended intervals to provide year–round protection. Beyond these measures, helping keep your engine running at its best this spring is as easy as filling up with a high–quality gasoline. “Gasoline primarily contains carbon and hydrogen molecules, and combustion can create a residue, called “gunk”, which is a build–up of carbon particles on critical engine parts,” says Ken Mitchell, an Engineer from Shell Canada. “This gunk has a porous surface that can negatively affect combustion and the performance of your vehicle. Some high–quality fuels, like all three grades of Shell's Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines, clean and protect critical engine parts from the build–up of gunk while you drive.” After you've cleaned it from the inside out, take your ride out for a spin to feel the engine roar to life. Think about your summer road trips to come, and enjoy the ride.

Ways to add life to your vehicle Getting more for your money is a popular trend among consumers. As economic uncertainty reigns, smart consumers are looking for the best values in an effort to get the most out of each and every dollar they spend. One of the best ways to stretch a dollar is to take better care of your vehicle. Buying a home and financing a college education are perhaps the only times many consumers will spend more money than they do when purchasing a vehicle. But unlike a home or an education, few people take their vehicles seriously, all too often avoiding vehicle maintenance that can greatly increase a car or truck's life expectancy. Drivers who want to keep their cars going strong for years to come can do so in a handful of ways. • Prevent, prevent, prevent. Preventive maintenance might seem like a boring way to spend a weekend morning or afternoon, but the efforts will be well worth it. Oil changes and filter replacements are quick and easy jobs but pay major dividends over the long haul. Drivers who aren't comfortable performing these tasks themselves need not worry about costly trips to the mechanic. Routine jobs like an oil change or air filter replacement are relatively inexpensive, and today's vehicles can go much longer between oil changes and filter replacements. Each vehicle manufacturer is different, so drivers should consult their owner's manual and adhere to the recommended maintenance schedule. • Stay balanced. Balanced tires are tires that will last longer. But an out of balance tire will not only shorten the life of tires, it can also do damage to the rest of the vehicle while simultaneously making riding in the car much less comfortable. When a tire is properly balanced, its mass is uniformly distributed around the axle, making for a smooth, vibration-free ride. However, an out of balance tire shortens the life expectancy of suspension components, including bearings and shocks. Repairs that result from an unbalanced tire can prove costly. Should a vibration occur as the vehicle accelerates (typically, this vibration will be noticeable when the car reaches speeds of 40-45 mph), chances are the tires are not properly balanced.

Canadian Tire Tires On Rims

NO Do something about your windshield CHARGE Most drivers have faced the 'rock chip on the windshield' and more often than not, they let the rock chip sit there till it grows into a longer crack and then one is forced to replace the windshield. Windshield crack repair can prevent the crack from growing further and ensure that your auto glass lasts the life of the vehicle. While it may seem like a small rock chip will eventually lead to a glass replacement. Windshield chip repair can actually save your windshield from

replacement. But how exactly does windshield crack repair work? Windshield crack repair follows a simple procedure of completely removing the air from the rock chip, filling the rock chip with resin, and curing the resin with ultraviolet light. Once the crack or rock chip is repaired utilizing the windshield repair method, strength and optical clarity is restored again to the windshield. Once the crack is contained by the windshield chip

repair method, it cannot weaken the glass anymore. Usually even a small rock chip on the auto glass weakens it tremendously and not only can the crack grow but the glass could also shatter on minor impact. Therefore by utilizing windshield glass repair technology, one can ensure that the life of the auto glass is preserved. It is a proven fact that over 90% of small chips on the auto glass tend to grow into major cracks. Since windshield repair can

only be utilized for cracks and rock chips that are smaller than a quarter, it is imperative that you schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Waiting it out may result in the minor chip growing into a larger uncontrollable crack which will lead to a highly weakened auto glass. Therefore when you do spot a chip on your windshield, opt for a windshield chip repair option that will cost you $60 or you will be dishing out much more for a windshield replacement.

What do I do with my winter tires? (NC)—With the ice melting and the flowers blooming, it's time to change your tires. Winter tires are crucial to safe driving on snowy and icy roads, but keeping them on during the warmer months of the year creates unnecessary wear and tear, making them less effective when winter rolls around again and also puts your safety at risk. But even after your three–season tires are aligned and in place, the question remains: What do you do with those winter tires? The first step is to check to see if those tires will be useful next

winter. Are the treads deeper than six millimetres? Is the rubber crack–free? Depending on your driving habits and how often you drive, winter tires should last for a few winters, but if you're still in doubt, ask a professional at your dealership or local tire retailer. If the tires are still safe for next year's snowstorms, your next move is to ensure that they're stored properly. Clean off any salt residue, dry them off and then store them in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. In other words, don't turn them into backyard tire swings for

the summer. However, the arrival of spring often calls for spring cleaning, and for some, that may mean disposing of winter tires that have reached the end of their life. If that's the case, getting rid of them is easy – just drop up to four tires off at any collector registered with the Tire Stewardship's Used Tires Program, an industry–funding program that allows residents to dispose of used tires free of charge and recycles them into roof tiles, playground surfaces, mouse pads and more. Start the spring season off right. There's no

need to keep used tires around when you can recycle them for free. The Used Tires Program makes what was old new again. By dropping old tires off at a registered collector, you're not only avoiding unnecessary clutter, you're helping the environment by ensuring your tires are recycled safely and made into new and useful products. While you're dropping them off why not looking at picking up a new soaker hose, welcome mat or patio tiles? All can be made from recycled tire rubber and are available at retailers across the province.

Last Week’s Answers

cook them too much or longer than normal. Here are some Cooking times for fresh fish. To estimate the cooking time of a fresh piece of fish, measure the meat at its thickest part. Suggested cooking times include: One cm thick – bake for 3 minutes, shallow fry for 4 minutes, grill for 5 minutes, poach for 8 minutes, steam for 3 minutes. Two cm thick – bake for 11 minutes, shallow fry for 7 minutes, grill for 6 minutes, poach for 10 minutes, steam for 7 minutes. Three cm thick – bake for 15 minutes,

Gary Kirstiuk was a gentleman who liked food and on some occasions he and I would get into a conversation about food or cooking. It was with deep sadness when I learned of his death. At his memorial service, a recipe was included and I thought that was such a neat piece of memorabilia to leave behind in his

Make this week about sharing your feelings with a loved one, Leo. Let him or her know what’s in your heart and spend quality time working on your relationship. Virgo, do whatever you can to restrain yourself this week. Things may not be going your way, but don’t fret too much and ride it out until next week.

You can never have too much fish I always think you can never have too much fish on your dinner plate. I know I have been hitting the fish recipes in this column lately but then again, you can never have too much fish in you or in your plate. Eating fish is an important source of omega-3 fatty acids. These essential nutrients keep our heart and brain healthy. Besides the health benefits there are those wonderful tastes that ‘tide in and out’ of your mouth when you eat fish. Healthy ways to enjoy fish include baked, poached, grilled and steamed.

memory. Here is Garry’s Panko Salmon Recipe 1 cup of mayo 2 crushed or chopped garlic 1 tsp of Dijon Mustard Grated lemon rind Juice from ½ lemon 1 tsp of sea salt Mix together ingredients and pour over salmon. Put some ground pepper and freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top. Sprinkle with Panko crumbs. Cook at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle. Thanks Gary! Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

Libra, your social energy enables you to express yourself clearly to others who are operating by your example. It’s a great time to share your feelings with others. Scorpio, focus on an impulse that can lead you in all different directions. Check in with someone you trust to help you think everything through.

Sagittarius, this week is a good time to gather some friends and form a united force against an issue to which you object. Get your message across without stepping on any toes. Capricorn, you are moving so quickly through the things you need to get done that you’re wondering why it seemed so challenging just a few days ago.

Aquarius, you have what it takes to make a big difference, so recruit a few other people who are content to march behind you toward the same goals.

Give free reign to your emotions, Pisces. It’s alright to show frustration or even anger if it fits the particular situation.

Time to talk about ticks bacteria. One of the most important ways to reduce the risk of tick illnesses is to do a skin check on yourself and your children after being outdoors. Other precautions include: Walking on cleared trails when in tall grass or wooded areas, wearing a hat, long sleeves, pants and light-coloured clothing, tucking pant legs into socks or boots, applying insect repellent containing DEET on uncovered skin and carefully checking clothing and scalp (covered or not) when leaving an area where ticks may live. If you find a tick on yourself, a family member or pet, wear gloves when removing it and be careful not to crush the tick as this could cause it to inject its stomach contents into your skin. Other tips to remove ticks safely include using needle-nose tweezers to gently grasp the tick close to the skin, without squeezing, pull the tick straight out.

$200 million for Phase Two of the Cariboo Connector four laning On Monday, Premier Christy Clark announced the Province is investing a further $200 million over the next five years in Phase 2 of the Cariboo Connector Four Laning Program.  This investment in nine new projects will four-lane an additional 30 km of Highway 97 between Prince George and Cache Creek, and create more than one thousand direct jobs over the life of the projects. ìThe Cariboo Connector is an incredibly important section

of highway that connects Northern BC with the Interior. It supports economic growth and meets the need for safe, dependable roadway in our specific region,í said Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. Approximately $28 million of the work will take place in Cariboo Chilcotin. In Williams Lake, the highway stretch between Carson Road and Fox Mountain will be increased to four lanes and there will be access management as well as intersection improvements.

Spring is here and many of us will be spending more time outdoors in tall grass and wooded areas, which means an increased chance of getting tick bites. Ticks, small bugs that bite and feed on the blood of humans and animals, can sometimes transmit disease. Fortunately, there are precautions people can take to prevent illnesses that may be transmitted from tick bites. “There are easy things you can do to protect yourself like covering up before you head outdoors and checking for ticks when returning from a walk, hike or bike ride,” said Dr. Karin Goodison, Public Health Physician with Interior Health. “Most tick bites do not result in illness; however, any bite from a tick or other insect should be cleaned because infection can occur whenever there is a break in the skin.”   While ticks are common in the Interior Health region, most are the Wood Tick species, which does not carry the Lyme disease
