Martin and Kaya Lenz from Bern, the capital of Switzerland take time Tuesday to visit the Tourism Discovery Centre as they pass through Williams Lake and plan on heading out to Bella Coola. It is their first time ever visiting British Columbia and so far are enjoying their trip.

Kathy McLean Cariboo Advisor The hub of tourism, The Tourist Info Centre, was busy Tuesday afternoon with eager and excited visitors from all over the world. Such as Martin and Kaya Lenz from Bern the capital of Switzerland. It’s their first time ever to beautiful British Columbia and the married couple plan on heading to Bella Coola for an extended visit and than taking the scenic ferry ride over to Port Hardy. From there, they will travel across Vancouver Island than on to their final destination Vancouver. According to Jaylyn Byer, the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce executive assistant, the number of people adventuring to see our spectacular part of the country is up from last year and most visitors are from BC and Alberta. Byer also said Bella Coola, which is simply one of the most beautiful places on earth, is a popular destination this summer and the ferry system is imperative to the future success of this coastal fishing community. “One-third of the final numbers are Americans mostly from California heading onto Alaska,” she said. There is still plenty of summer remaining for us locals, so why not pack up the family, load up the car and take a voyage to tour the most beautiful province on earth, our very own British Columbia.

Summer has been just wonderful out here in Horsefly so far, and still another great month still to go! It has been great seeing all the people out for weddings, visiting, camping, and just touring around Horsefly. We have an amazing little community out here with lots of things to check out! If you have the chance stop in and see the ladies at the Museum they have lots of interesting information to share with you. I am seeing lots of people now coming out to go swimming at the lakes or even dipping into the river with some tubes too! (Please be cautious as the river is still running swiftly) I see boats and campers everyday going out to the campgrounds, there has been a lot of amazing people out here to visit this year! Speaking of amazing people, I would like to talk about an amazing group of volunteers. People that volunteer never get enough thank you’s for all the hard work they do. The volunteers that I am speaking about are the people that do all the hard work to put together the Arts On The Fly Festival. The festival was held this year, July 13th and 14th. If you missed it, you missed the best one yet. This is the 7th year that the festival has been held here, they have many musical groups that are here to entertain you for Friday evening and all day and night Saturday. They also have many vendors and crafts, and great things for children to do every year. I have had the pleasure over the last several months of having this great group come in and work together on making this year’s festival a great success. Each week they came in and had snacks or dinner and went right to it on the organizing. Many thanks go to Ellie Seelhof, Carmen Mutschele, Pharis Romero, Steffi Krumsiek, Laurel Reynolds (one of my amazing waitresses here at the Anvil), Marin Patenaude, Brandi Ranger, Chanti Holtl, Troy Forcier, and Becky Patenaude, congratulations on a job well done. I certainly hope that you are all up to the task again for next year to make it even bigger and better! I also met some more amazing people that came in a week before the festival to help out on the set up of the stage and sound stuff. This year it was a gruelling task in the 30 degree heat with no shade in site. They came

I sure got a kick out of Doug when he asked me if I had ever been racked, And of course he got a pardon me! So off out to his van he went and moments later came back in with an oven rack, he then asked me to put my fingers into these two strings with small loops around them and then told me to put my fingers into my ears. He ever so gently ran a piece of wood across the oven rack, it was like listening to the most beautiful harp that I had ever heard, playing in my ears, it was fantastic! So if you ever have some one ask you if you want to be racked? Go for it! You will be astonished at the sound. Horsefly followed up the Arts on the Fly this year on Sunday with the Annual Town Wide Garage Sale, I heard that there was great deals at all the locations and that it was of course another great community success! A few great things to watch for in August are: August 4th Saturday at 8pm Elaine Armogost will be at the Anvil Pub to host Open Mic Night. There will be 2 Texas Hold’ems in August at the Pub on the 11th and 18th, and the Pub will have one more BBQ and Horseshoes on the 25th of August. You won’t want to miss the Horsefly Fall Fair for all the great stuff that they always have. This is a great family outing for the day held on the 25th August from 12 till 4pm in the Village at the Community Hall, come join us for the fun! The Salmon Festival will be in early September I will let you know on the date for it soon! I hope to see you all soon out here in Horsefly, so until next month. Cheers Dianna

Dix meets with Cariboo residents Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor NDP leader Adrian Dix was in the lakecity last week visiting with various groups and gaining insight into their concerns. “I come to Williams Lake often. It’s a great community,” Dix said. “I have been talking to and listening to lots of various local groups of people.” While in the lakecity, Dix met with representatives from Tolko, a group of First Nations leaders, the Council of Canadians, seniors groups, and small business people. “I met with a wide variety of groups, talking about the issues that are important to people in Williams Lake and in the Cariboo generally,” said Dix, who attended the Kootenay to Kitimat Caravan rally in Herb Gardner Park Thursday morning.

“We heard significant concerns about the Enbridge pipeline. I’ve been opposed to the pipeline so I talked with people regarding that issue,” he said. Another issue Dix heard revolved around access to the timber supply and the future of the forest industry. Dix also met with seniors groups and praised CaribooChilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse for helping to have Deni House reopened. “(Wyse) led the fight against the closure of Deni House and for the reopening of Deni House,” Dix said. “We also talked to seniors groups about the need to ensure seniors have the opportunity to stay at home as long as possible, which means improving home support and home-care programs.’ Dix said he heard a wide variety of issues

NDP leader Adrian Dix speaks to the crowd at the Enbridge Pipeline rally Thursday morning. and concerns, including the economy, jobs, training, health care, education, seniors, forestry and mining while in Williams Lake. “I really think it’s

important to come and listen first of all because this is such an important constituency in the province,” he said. “And it’s important to listen … because I don’t think you can just assess what the best idea is sitting in Victoria; you have to come engage with people.” He uses the example of the New Prosperity mine project when he toured the Fish Lake area last year. “I saw and learned about the project from a completely different perspective – an onthe-ground perspective,” he said. “It’s the approach that works for me.” Dix also said he thinks it’s important to travel and to engage with B.C residents because politics have become too negative and personal. “I think we need to be more positive. I think people are get-

ting discouraged from participating in politics,” he said. “I think if we talk about things in person, listen and gain understanding I think that is going to bring people back to wanting to vote.” Dix adds it’s important that he tries to talk and listen to others in at least equal measure. “It’s a crucial time for the economy in communities such as Williams Lake, in my view, and we have to do everything we can to support communities.”

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Even though the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline doesn’t directly affect Williams Lake, two local events show residents still care. On Thursday morning, the Council of Canadians hosted a gathering in Herb Gardner Park for a Kootenay to Kitimat Caravan protest against the proposed pipeline that would carry crude from the Alberta tar sands to the port of Kitimat. There was a number of people who showed up to voice their concerns against the proposed pipeline and to support the caravan.

HAWKINS: Retires

Crown counsel talks about overburdened court system Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor In the days before attending an outdoor garden party in his honour, Williams Lake's freshly retired Administrative Crown Counsel Rod Hawkins looks more the part of a contented gardener than the sharp minded lawyer he has become known for over the years. "There is some method to my madness," Hawkins explains of

planting some 190 lilac bushes on the peaceful lakefront property he and his wife Sandra are retiring at. "Lilacs grow like weeds in this soil they're wonderful. Now I finally get a chance to spend some time with them." From safety concerns at the local courthouse to the ever increasing pressures on court time, Hawkins took the time recently to reflect on his

life and career and look forward into the future. Born and raised in Claremont, New Hampshire, USA by parents of English and Scottish descent, Hawkins' journey to the Cariboo began after a year of studies in Germany, when at the end of that time he met his wife Sandra. "It was really a coincidence that we ended up on the same ship," Hawkins said of meeting his future wife while on an oceanliner out of northern Germany, where Hawkins had gone to school for the year. His lifelong thirst for knowledge he said was fostered at a young age at home where there were always lots of books available, and later in his childhood when he attended an allmale prep school for five years. "I was one of those kids who always had my nose in a book." It's no surprise then

that Hawkins attended an Ivy League college in the States where he majored in German literature and minored in Russian language while working a 40-hour work week in a language laboratory to put himself through school. His unique studies set him apart and even attracted the attention of the CIA, who sent a man dressed in a trenchcoat in the dark of night to approach Hawkins on the idea of coming to work for the spy agency. "He warned me that (agents) were monitored 24/7 ... we were newly married at the time and that prospect didn't interest me. But it was interesting to be asked." After graduation, the couple moved to Minnesota for Sandra to complete her Bachelor of Science. The two had also made a critical decision for their future that they would leave the United States. "It was a violent time (in U.S. history) and we didn't want any part of it," Hawkins said. "We knew societies could live better in other parts of the world." In the spring of 1969 the couple crossed into Canada at Vancouver, where Hawkins obtained his law degree at UBC and Sandra, her teaching degree. Hawkins was articling at a posh Vancouver law firm where he met his mentor, Cunliff Barnett, a man who would ultimately be responsible for the couple relocating to Williams Lake. Hawkins was half way articling with Barnett's firm when Barnett was appointed to the bench and became the first professional sitting judge in Williams Lake. Hawkins said Barnett would periodically try to convince the couple to leave the city and move to the Cariboo. "We bit," said Hawkins, who went on to work many years in the lakecity with legal aid and Judge Barnett. "Judge Barnett was a good judge. He always spoke his mind," Hawkins said of his friend, who retired from the bench in the mid1990s and made a special trip for Hawkins' retirement party recently.

Angie Mindus photo

Former Administrative Crown Counsel Rod Hawkins plans to spend lots of time during his retirement in his favorite room at home -- his library -- with his Golden Retrievers and his extensive book collection. "No judge gets it right all the time, but I think he did a good job." After 17 years with legal aid, Hawkins retired in his late forties. "The first three months were gorgeous. But after three months I was bored out of my mind. That's what kind of has me worried now." Without telling his wife, Hawkins applied for a job at Crown Counsel and won the position, leading him to serve almost 20 more years as Administrative Crown, which he just retired from at the end of June. "It's gone by so fast ... I enjoyed it even more than legal aid. As Admin. Crown, if I saw something that wasn't fair, I'd sign my name and it would go away." Hawkins said there are times when the Crown has personal misgivings about some files. "We have to remember as Crown we're not there to get a conviction,

we're there to present the evidence in a fair manner. The Supreme Court of Canada often reminds us of this." Hawkins said one of the greatest disappointments in his career has been the lack of help available to those who end up in court with addiction and/or mental health issues. "What are we doing trying to solve these problems?" Hawkins questions of the courts' place, pointing out a total lack services in Williams Lake. "We need a place where an addicted person can go and you lock the door (until they dry out). They cannot get themselves sober or straight on their own and they can't get into any (existing) programs unless they are sober. How are they going to get there?" Hawkins said much of what the courts are seeing now is driven by addiction, with crack cocaine use reaching epidemic proportions.

"Some really nice people that you get to know are in and out of court their whole lives because of addiction." In Williams Lake, Hawkins acknowledges there are also unique security problems facing our court workers. "From a security point of view, it's just a very dangerous place to have to go," Hawkins said, remembering signing papers for a new courthouse design when he first arrived at the Crown office in 1992 but still nothing has changed. Another serious problem facing all courts today is the increasing backlog, due in large part, according to Hawkins, to a system which pays legal aid lawyers more money for each day that a trial goes on. "I don't think that's a system that is designed to get things done quickly ... (it's backlogged and ) there's no incentive to See HAWKINS on Page 5

Salon brings touch of the big city to lakecity Intrigue Hair Studio has been in business for many years in the Williams Lake area and has recently become Intrigue Hair and Body Studio. Intrigue purchased a building in order to expand their services menu, which now include full service esthetics, cosmetic tattooing, piercing and

nails. Of course we still have all hair service including a specialized ‘Man Cave’ barbershop that is soon opening downstairs. The new salon is a very sleek, modern space with red leather couches, beautiful floors, and art deco design, which reflects a definite urban trend in both atmosphere and hair.

In contrast the ‘Man Cave’ provides a warm, yet masculine atmosphere with a ‘no appointment necessary’ policy. The ‘Man Cave’ offers barbering, male esthetics and exclusive male hair and body products. All services are provided by fully qualified and licensed profession-

als. Our staff regularly attends specialty classes and upgrading to ensure we are providing the utmost quality of service. Our new location is 998 McKinnon Road, right beside the HandiMart just off Highway 97; we have ample parking in front and out back. Please phone 392-

Challenges for all facets of the law Continued from Page 4 make it otherwise." Hawkins said the challenge facing all facets of law, both civil and criminal, is finding a way to provide quick, inexpensive and effective access to the law and the law courts. "Today, most people cannot afford to use the Superior Courts because of cost. Most people cannot afford the services of a lawyer. Provincial Courts handle most of the issues and are hugely overburdened. In result, we have way more cases of all kinds than the courts can handle. So we have less time to spend solving problems and less time to educate people about the law ... We need to find a way to be

for his type of work and in the last year he's come to accept it's time to move on. "When you get there, if you're lucky, you get to walk away and do something else." For Hawkins that something else will happily include spending time pruning his lilacs, reading his volumes of beautifully bound books, and of course spending time with his beloved Golden Retrievers and wife Sandra, who has been hoping he would retire for some time.

But if he has his way, Hawkins hopes to keep his foot in the door by volunteering to offer legal advice to clients at the Women's Contact Centre and possibly teach courses to members of the RCMP. "I have all this stuff crammed into my head, so I feel I should put it to use." Hawkins expressed gratitude for all of those who played a part in his retirement celebration, especially those who attended an open house on July 6.

The 271 –hectare fire that is burning southeast of Chimney Lake, which was discovered last Wednesday, is now 100 percent contained. Eighty-three firefighters remain at the fire, along with five pieces of heavy equipment, one helicopter and a type two management team supporting the crew on logistics, plans and operations. The fire is now 40 per cent mopped up. Fifteen new fires were discovered over the weekend in the region, mostly in remote areas, but they remain small and many are already fully put out. Ten fires continue to burn in the region – the majority of which are in mop up or patrol stages.

more efficient without taking away from the fundamental rights of the participants." Hawkins said the answer lies in education and the government at all levels providing sufficient resources. Hawkins said the backlog problem is so serious that cases are being thrown out of court, even in Williams Lake. On a more personal note, Hawkins acknowledged that witnessing the darker side of human behaviour is something you have to be careful not to take home in his line of work, and admits "it makes you sober." "You are always aware you've seen a slice of life that most people haven't seen," he said, quick to point out the work of police officers. "I have a great deal of respect for the RCMP. The public should really appreciate what they go through to serve them. It's such a hard job. I couldn't do what they do." Hawkins said there is definitely "a shelf life"

Special family bonds and fun times camping I spent the weekend with some of my favorite people – they make me mad, annoy the heck out of me, always in my space, are usually too loud, but I love them more than anything. My family on my mom’s side is a special breed, we are loud, annoying, overbearing, and love each so much and the time I spend with them is extremely special to me. When I was younger, my family along with my mom’s two sisters who live in Williams Lake and their families use to go camping all together and some of my best memories as

a child are from those weekends. Over the past weekend, most of us finally all got together and went camping again, we were missing a cousin, but had the addition of two husbands, a boyfriend, and three children and although we all really missed Nathan. My mom has four more siblings in Swift Current, Sask. and although I love those aunts, uncles and cousins too, I have a special bond with the aunts, uncles and cousins I grew up with. Us cousins may as well be sisters and brothers, we get told enough that we

fight as if we were. This camping trip we had the chance to interact on a new level, as we are all more or less adults now and the age differences seem minor compared to when we kids. We are all, mostly, out of the our parents house; some living far away others just around the corner (literally) but the distance is forgotten as soon as we are all together again. I love introducing friends and boyfriends to my family because they are all so accepting and just a heck of lot of fun. We are always laughing, either at a joke or at someone’s

expense, at least we all know it’s just in good Sauder fun. I often see people who barely see or speak to their parents and siblings let alone their cousins, and I am always thankful for the cousins, aunts and uncles I have. They all love me and I love them. And even though we can all drive each other a little crazy, that’s how we show our affection. No one may carry the Sauder name out here in B.C. (or in Alberta) but we will always be tied together by that name and it’s a bond no distance or time apart can break.

Band together British Columbia Over the past week I have had the opportunity to get more educated on the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline, something I was thought really didn’t affect us here in Williams Lake, but I was wrong. Over the past week there have been two gatherings in Williams Lake, where those who oppose the pipeline have come together, but not to bash the pipeline.

One with the Ten day Caravan who traveled from the Kootenay’s to Kitimat to share their ideas and gather support, and Kim Slater who is running the distance of the proposed pipline. Slater is gathering ideas on what a clean energy future looks like for B.C. They are coming together for many reasons, to yes show their opposition, but to also show their support to

other communities such as Kitimat, who if the pipeline goes ahead will be directly affected, and most importantly these gatherings were about looking towards a clean energy future for B.C. I thought the pipeline didn’t affect me, and I am sure there were and are others out there that feel the same, but what I have taken away from this past week is that clean water and most importantly a clean

future are important to all of B.C. With fossil fuels being unrenewable, and causing so many dangers to the environment, it makes sense to me to look towards other opportunities. It’s important to everyone for to contribute his or her ideas and to help promote change for the future. To share ideas go to Slater’s website at www.

Wallet experiment produces phenomenal results Almost immediately, the phone began to ring. A teenaged girl and I had just finished “forgetting” 10 wallets in various locations in a rather local city. The wallets contained a name and phone number, a $10 bill, a few coins, and a shopping list. Feigning innocence, we had walked in and out of banks, grocery and retail stores, public and government entities, food establishments and a mix of high-traffic areas. One wallet was left beside an ATM. Others were left in a bathroom, beside a clothing rack, or aban-

had simply tossed the wallet under a car in the parking lot. When we retrieved the ‘lost’ wallet (and confessed), we enquired about the money, “Was it still in the wallet?” With a shocked look, the manager told us she had not even checked! We thanked her, gave her the $10, and left. The second call was from a person who refused to accept $10 for doing “something right.” But we said that would wreck our experiment, so we handed over the $10 and made our exit. The third call came

from a public/government location. The caller’s main concern was that the writing was childlike and the child might be sad. So far three wallets had been returned, and the honesty and consideration of those we met were phenomenal. The wallet left by an ATM had been picked up twice and taken into the bank. The friendly tellers had been forewarned, so they returned the wallet to the ATM twice before it disappeared. We now totaled ten wallets and two extra placements. So far 5 out

of 12 were returned great for a roof pitch, but is that OK as a level of honesty? The last of the wallets was put down in our lunch spot right beside the cash register. Lost-and-found thoughts vanished; our work was done. All we had to do was wait for more phone calls - or so we thought. A few seconds later, a nicely dressed gentlemen approached the counter to place his order. He saw the wallet, picked it up, and in an instant used the $10 dollars to purchase his lunch. We

were astounded! There was no hesitation, no checking for a name, no discussion with the cashier, and no asking about. Our experiment was interesting now, but not fun anymore. As the man joined his friends, we couldn’t help staring, wondering who he was and who they were. We pondered how he made decisions at work and at home. The teenager exploded, “I wouldn’t hire him!” I would love to congratulate those who turned in wallets, or interview them for the

Cariboo Advisor. But they don’t need a reward. They carry something better with them everywhere, even without a wallet. And the other calls? Well, there weren’t any. Strange - each of the finders could have kept their integrity and the $10, too. Maybe next year.… But if any of those wonderful ‘returners’ read this, please email me at LOL@caribooadvisor. com. I would love to meet you, hand you a recommendation, and of course, there is still the $10 for an honest lunch.

Memory Garden ground breaking Saturday Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor After a lot of planning, talking, and working through a variety of obstacles, it’s finally time to break ground on the community garden located at the bottom of Carson Drive. “We are so excited to finally be breaking ground,” said Michelle Daymond, food action co-ordinator for the Williams Lake Food Policy Council. She said the garden has been years in the making and now that they have finally sorted through all the planning and broken through all the red tape it’s time to finally celebrate the official groundbreaking Saturday, July 28 at noon. “We are going to have a city representative there for the office ribbon cutting, and many of our sponsors and partners will be there as well, and everyone is invited to come,” Daymond said.

“The building of raised garden beds will begin at 8 a.m. and those who wish to volunteer are more than welcome to come help out.” Daymond said the more volunteers who come out, the more work they will be able to get done. She said they hope to complete 40 raised beds, plant a few plants and even start the fence that will go around the garden. “The fence is to define the space, not to keep anyone in or out,” she said. “And anyone who comes to help that has a cordless drill is asked to bring it along.” The community garden is located at the bottom of Carson Drive and is the brainchild of a leadership class at Williams Lake Secondary School. “The WL leadership students wanted to make a difference in the community,” teacher Dena Baumann said, “in memory of people

they had lost that had inspired and made a difference in their lives.” The students at WLSS have named the community garden space The Memory Garden. Daymond said after three years the students’ vision is finally coming to life. “We have so many plans for the space. It’s over 25,000 square feet so the sky’s the limit as to what we can do,” she said. “We are going to have a large vegetable section, individual spaces for the owners to grow whatever they like, a children’s garden, and eventually a root cellar and maybe a community compost.” As for this year, Daymond said they just want to get the raised beds in and plant what they can. “Next year, we will start with the children’s garden, which will be designed for children by children,” she said. “There will be signs made by children at

their level, and it will be just for them.” Daymond said getting children outside in the garden and learning is a new passion of hers and she is excited to start the plans for the children’s garden with her preschool class at the Child Development Centre in the fall. Another goal of the community garden, according to Daymond, is to educate the community on what types of gardens and plants are possible in the Cariboo. “The Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society is going to put in a xeriscape garden, which is a low-maintenance, low-water garden that will demonstrate what native plants grow here in the Cariboo,” she said. “I am really excited about it since it’s something that is new to me.” Another hope for the garden is to have seniors gardening in the space and passing on their tricks and secrets they

have learned over the years of gardening in the Cariboo, Daymond said. “I think that it is important that we continue to pass on these things to each other, and with the community garden they (the seniors) can have a garden without the worry of a huge yard to take care of,” she said. Daymond and the Food Policy Council would like to thank all of their sponsors and partners who have made the garden possible. They include Interior Health, the City of Williams Lake, the Cariboo Regional District, W. Garfield Weston Foundation, Thompson Nicola United Way, Community Futures, School District 27 and the Williams Lake and District Credit Union. Organizers invite the public to join in on Saturday, July 28 to help turn The Memory Garden into a reality.

Make your holidays work with the weather Next year I am going to have my holiday schedule fit in with the weather... I am going to take time to relax in the sun from mid July to mid September. That is when we get the sunshine according to the weather patterns of the last years. Don’t bother to take any holidays in June unless you are a fisherman and want to take advantage of the many bug hatches at this time. For me, June has been the best time to fish but lately I always remember to take rain gear with me because it is not unusual to spend a lot of time in wet conditions. The rainy weather does have

Gord Mierau, along with friends Georgette and Bernie Pinette have brought the new sport of pickleball to the lakecity.

Pickleball a fun, new sport in the lakecity Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor After picking up on pickleball while vacationing down south in the U.S., Bernie and Georgette Pinette along with good friend Gord Mierau decided to bring the sport to the lakecity. “It’s become quite popular in the States,” Georgette said. “We wanted to be able to play when we are here in town.” Bernie and Mierau decided to approach the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club to see if it

would let them have one of its tennis courts. “They had a court that wasn’t used and Bernie and Gord fixed it up into a pickleball court,” Georgette said. “Pickleball is a combination of tennis, table tennis and badminton.” She said the sport is for any age level, from young children up to seniors, and is a great family sport. “Even my grandchildren play with us,” she said. “It’s great fun.” Mierau, who has been playing pickleball down

south for three years, agrees with Georgette, saying it’s an easy sport to pick up. “It’s very similar to tennis and is great for Courtney Taylor photo those who cannot play Bernie and Georgette Pinette have some fun in the sun playing pickleball with friends tennis anymore because Tuesday morning.

B.C. tournament hits Chimney Lake waters this weekend Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Most weekends during July, August and September local water skier Conley Pinette travels to compete in water-ski tournaments, but for the first time he gets to compete right at home. This weekend, July 28 and 29, the Water Ski Wakeboard British Columbia provincial championships are being held directly in front of the Pinettes’ cabin on Chimney

Lake. “It’s exciting to have the provincials here,” Conley said. “The only thing is I can’t break records here.” That being said, he just jumped 117 feet, breaking the Canadian record for longest jump for boys 14 and under in Borderline, WA. just two weeks ago. “It is pretty cool – I have two records. One for 14 and under and one for boys 2, which is 12 and under,” Conley said.




Mon - Sat 8am - 5pm Sun 9am - 5pm 1050 South Lakeside Drive, WL

Conley’s mom Leigh said it’s been a lot of work organizing the event – Conley’s dad Parnell applied to host it at Chimney Lake back in February. “It’s been a tremendous amount of work, but the Victoria Aqua Ski Club has been incredibly helpful,” Leigh said. “We are all really excited.” She said there are about 50 skiers coming, most of them from Victoria but also from the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan, Kamloops and a few from Prince George. “They are going to be camping at the end of the lake and some on our property,” she said. “It should be a great weekend – we are hoping for good weather.” She invites anyone interested in watching to come out to their cabin, which is located almost at the end of the lake, to view the events and enjoy a concession and items up for auction. “We would love it if

Spectators are going to have front view seats to watch all the action that will be happening just off shore. lots of people came out to watch. Normally in water-skiing tournaments they are out pretty far, but here they are pretty close to shore,” Leigh said. “Bring a lawn chair and come out.”

Conely said there will be three events just like any other tournament – slalom, trick and jump. “My favourite is jump,” he said. “It’s what I am the best at and I love flying

through the air and going far.” Recently, he just got a new pair of metal fins, which are supposed to make him go faster and therefore further when he jumps.

“I am pretty excited about (the new fins),” he said. Events start Saturday morning around 8 a.m. with slalom, and continue for most of the day and then again on Sunday.

HOROSCOPE Sometimes as challenging as life can be, you take chances and push yourself further, Aries. This could prove a week to do some risk-taking and exploring new ideas. It could take a lot to raise your ire this week, Taurus. However, if your mood is already set to simmer, you may have a full-blown boiling over at the slightest taunt.

It is easy to bury something and ignore it, Gemini, but it’s not always easy to face a problem head-on. Make an effort to figure out issues that keep recurring in your life.

Take a few moments to focus on your future, Cancer, rather than just what needs to be done in the present. Open your mind to real long-term goals.

Last Week’s Answers

It’s summertime in the land of over 6000 lakes and so I thought perhaps you wouldn’t mind a little fish story... Fishing is one of the great ways to relax. Recently I fished for Lake Trout or Char as many people call them, and after a couple of days I never caught a living creature. Reluctantly I decided to change my favorite lure along with a heavier weight so I could fish somewhat deeper than I had been doing. After being out on the water for about 30 minutes my reel started to sing and the line was going out pretty quick. It

felt like I had caught the bottom, as it had happened about three times in five days. I used a little ‘logger language’ to express my mood relating to hooking something in the depths of Canim Lake. The bottom all of a sudden seemed to have some life. Ah, a fish. The lake trout was not to receptive to com-

ing anywhere close to the boat ... I thought the fish had to be big because it was hard to get off the bottom and as I was using an eight pound test line it made sense to take it easy. About fifteen minutes laterI had the trout close to the boat and could see it was a good size, now I’m starting to get pretty excited. Landing this big one was a bit of a chore with my smaller char net. Then it was time to weigh-in this critter... 18.5 pounds, a nice size, one where I will get several pieces to smoke. When I started to clean the fish I realized the flesh

was all nice and pink instead of the normal white colour of a lake trout. Some of these fish eat a lot of fresh water shrimp and it helps to turn the flesh into a deep salmon like pink and also add some taste. I like to poach lake trout lake in a water and wine mixture with herbs or do them on the barbecue with lemon and dill. Here is another simple method for a tasty dish of lake trout or char as they are sometimes called. Cariboo Lake Trout (Char)

2 pounds fresh filleted fish with skin

removed 4 Tbsp lemon juice 2 Tbsp fresh basil 1 Tbsp olive oil 1 Tbsp soy sauce 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp of minced garlic Fresh pepper and seasoned sea salt to taste Put all ingredients together to make a marinade then marinate the fish for at least an hour. When cooking on the barbecue brush with more of the marinade. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork. Hope you have a chance for some good Cariboo fresh fish this summer. Bye for now and Goood Cooking

Arguments can quickly turn stressful, Leo. So try your best to avoid any confrontations this week and your body will thank you. Unresolved issues could pop up.

You are overly focused on the minute details of the things you do, Virgo. But somehow the bigger picture has escaped your perusal lately. Remedy that this week.

Char recipe with a hint of wine and herbs


Your curiosity could get the best of you this week, Libra. You may end up delving into things that are better left unturned. Take a step back and find a new focus.

Don’t set yourself up for frustration, Scorpio. Avoid any people who cause you conflict and any activities that bring you grief. Enjoy yourself instead.

Sagittarius, although you didn’t think things could get much busier, this week you will find more on your plate. Don’t be overly concerned. There will be time to get things done.

More enjoyable things are on the horizon, Capricorn, and you could find yourself distracted by so many enjoyable activities. Try to schedule one per week.

No one can solve your conflicts better than you, Aquarius. Although your options seem to be a little stifled as of late, you’ll find the way to impart changes.

The planets are giving you the cosmic go-ahead to get things done, Pisces. So don’t delay your actions any longer.
