Injured moose attacks hunter Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A hunter is in Kamloops hospital recovering from serious facial injuries he sustained during a moose attack out west. According to Sgt. Mike Hacker of the Alexis Creek detachment, the incident took place in the morning of Sept. 25 when two brothers from Quesnel were out hunting moose in an area north of Puntzi Lake. Hacker said the victim, 42, shot the moose in a field and radioed his brother for assistance, before heading over to what he thought was a dead animal. “The moose got up and kicked him in the face and ran off,” Hacker said, adding the victim’s brother then came along to find his brother with severe injuries to his face, chest and hand. RCMP and the Conservation Officer Service were called in, who tracked down and dispatched the injured animal while an ambulance met the injured hunter on the east side of Hanceville. “He had pretty severe facial injuries,” Hacker said, noting the man has been improving daily in hospital but is expected to require several surgeries. “He’s lucky to be alive.”

NO GLASS IN RECYCLING CARTS PLEASE DO NOT put glass in the recycling cart. Glass in the recycling cart could end up broken. Broken glass spoils the recyclables and puts the workers who do the sorting at a great risk of injury. Instead of putting glass in the curb side recycling cart, it can be taken to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station or Canadian Tire.

Here are some easy do’s and don’ts that can assist everyone in making the collection of recyclables and solid waste easier for you, as well as the City of Williams Lake’s contractor.


Have the garbage/recycling cart at the curb before 7:00 am. Take the garbage/recycling cart off the curb the same day as it is collected. Put shredded paper in a bag. Loose paper may escape when tipping the cart. Record the serial number on the side of your cart to identify your cart from your neighbours. Ensure the lid of the cart is fully closed. Partially opened lids will not be picked up. Clean all recyclables before putting them in the recycling container.


Don’t put your carts on the street the night before your collection day. The cart’s subject to vandalism. Don’t put the garbage/recycling carts any closer together than 1 meter. Don’t leave your cart on the curb. This interferes with snow removal or street cleaning. Don’t put your cart any closer than 2 meters from any obstruction such as vehicles or landscaping. Don’t take the carts when you move. The carts belong to that address, NOT TO YOU.

Avoid putting organic material, such as grass clippings, branches, or garden waste, in the solid waste cart. These items only add unnecessary weight to the solid waste stream and increase the costs for every resident in Williams Lake. This material can be brought to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station on Frizzi Road and dropped off free of charge. The only items that are permitted go into the curb side recycling cart are: 1. Paper products – office paper, magazines, newspapers. 2. Cardboard – corrugated cardboard and regular cardboard such as a cereal box. 3. Plastics – must have the recycling symbol on it and the number inside the symbol must be 1 through 7. No Styrofoam allowed. 4. Metal food cans – food or beverage containers. Note: all above mentioned products must be clean. Other recyclable material, such as glass, lead acid batteries, or propane bottles that cannot be put in the curb side recycling cart can be dropped off at the Central Cariboo Transfer Station. Even more recyclable items can be brought to several locations in Williams Lake that participate in the product stewardship program. A list of these companies can be found at the Encorp website (, the Encorp toll free number 1-800-330-9767, or by calling the BC Recycling Hotline at 1-800-667-4321. Any questions can be directed to City Hall at 250-392-2311.

Elementary closures in initial report

Angie Mindus photo

100 Mile House parent and PAC member Angela Cole takes School District 27 trustees to task after the Board announces their proposal to close and reconfigure schools throughout the district last week.

If approved, School District 27 school closures in and around the city will see affected students dispersed to the six remaining elementary schools. Elementary schools of choice will be the hardest hit, with only French being protected while the year-round calendar and traditional programs are up for closure. For the Glendale closure, the English students will be sent to Cataline elementary while the French stu-

Creek Elementary and 100 Mile House Junior Secondary, while reconfiguring all elementary schools to a K to 8 scenario while reconfiguring Peter Skene Ogden Secondary (PSO) to grade 9 to 12. In this plan the Board would dispose of the Jr. Secondary land and buildings and commit funding to upgrade PSO and possibly expand 100 Mile House Elementary as well. The Board protected all rural schools east and west of Williams Lake. Board chair William Van Osch cited declining enrollment and reduced Provincial funding now and into the future as the catalysts for the overhaul, adding that the Board had to get their “house in order” before they could ever approach the ministry for more money. “I think what we have here is positive – but we’re not married to the proposal either. We want to hear from the public,” Van Osch said. At this initial meeting, the public was allowed to only ask clarifying questions, leaving the fine details and parent’s opinions to public meetings starting this week. The Board was asked of their plans of Marie Sharpe, the oldest structure in the district at 60 plus years which was scheduled for replacement, and were told the Board has withdrawn their plan for a new school and will use the $4 million currently set aside for the project for other renovations and upgrades.

SD 27 options Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor The tension in School District 27’s boardroom was palpable last week before trustees and the superintendent announced to a full house their proposal to close three elementary schools in Williams Lake and reconfigure the high schools. Wildwood, Glendale and Kwaleen Traditional elementary schools are all slated for possible closure in the new plan, while the local high schools would be converted into a one school, two-campus option for grades 7 through 12 in Williams Lake, instead of the current Columneetza and Williams Lake Senior Secondary configuration which presently offers grades 8 to 12 high schools. According to the Initial Options Report, this model is supposed to increase choices for students and eliminate another transition, as opposed to a middle school to high school scenario. After questioned, the Board suggested the grade 7s could be located in one school as a pod and given exploration opportunities in specialty spaces at the other school. “The challenge is at the administration level, not at the student or teacher level,” states the report, indicating the district would hire an external facilitator to coordinate the restructuring. For the 100 Mile House area, trustees propose to close Buffalo

dents will be rerouted to Nesika elementary. For the proposed Kwaleen Traditional closure, students living in the school’s catchment area will be sent to Chilcotin Road elementary while out-of-area students will be sent back to their own catchment area or school of choice. Because Kwaleen is a school of choice, more than 50 per cent of its student population of 100 or so comes from out of the area for the

A Short Diary Of Julie Who Gets A Healthy Lifestyle Makeover As A Participant of CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program)

Julie is a real CHIP participant who regularly reported her progress to her local newspaper over the 30 days of the program. Her responses and positive results are very similar to the well over 50,000 CHIP graduates worldwide who are enjoying a better and longer life because of taking a month to focus on their health and lifestyle. After attending an info session and taking a hard look at her life. Info Session: Julie decides and prepares for her ďŹ rst CHIP and serious lifestyle change I’m a macaroni and cheese kind of girl. I probably shouldn’t admit it, but I’m also a little too well acquainted with Ronald McDonald. Don’t get me wrong, I like to take care of myself. Lacing up my running shoes and jumping around in a step aerobics class

for an hour or two is the perfect ending to my work day, and I try to hit the weights at least twice a week. I just cant seem to get that healthy eating thing down pat. It’s time to make a change. It’s time to get my healthy eating train back on track, head straight out of Junksville and make my way to body boot camp. “Maintaining a healthy body can be as simple as eating the right foods, drinking adequate amounts of water and ďŹ tting exercise in your schedule.â€? according to Dr. Hans Diehl, founder of the Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP). It all sounds pretty easy at ďŹ rst. The water and the exercise I can deal with, but then I start to wonder, what exactly are the right foods? Hopefully by the end of the month, I’ll be able to tell you. I will be spending three days a week with Dr. Diehl and his team learning how food affects my body and how to make the most of what I eat. The program, presented by all volunteers including the local directors, runs on the principle that eating the proper foods can prevent or reverse chronic disease, including heart problems, high blood pressure and a whole slew of other ailments.

CHIP isn’t a diet Dr. Diehl informs me. Rather lifestyle change is eating healthy foods that will help my body function as it is supposed to. He compares the program’s philosophy to eating an apple instead of apple pie or some carrot sticks instead of carrot cake. In telling people I’ve decided to take the program, a few have commented that I’m too young for a lifestyle change. I can’t believe it! Being under thirty doesn’t magically make me immune to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and a ton of other health problems. I ďŹ gure it’s never too early to get my body on track for a ďŹ t future. The contents of my fridge will never be the same. It’s all for the better though, I’m sure my body will thank me later. WEEK 1: JULIE SURVIVES AND IS MUCH WISER ABOUT CHOICES ON FOOD After four nights of participating in the Complete Health Improvement Program, I’m amazed at how much I’ve learned about healthy eating and lifestyles. My afternoon snack of chocolate and Coke has been replaced with water and carrots. Eight glasses of water has replaced all of the pop and fruit juice I had been drinking.

And my meals are coming off the stove instead of through the drive-thru window. I’m still exercising, too. All of these positive changes are thanks to the CHIP volunteer team. They led discussions, showed lectures by Dr. Hans Diehl, the program’s creator, and provided food samples to myself and my fellow CHIPERS. The samples have ranged from shepherd’s pie to rice pudding, all created with heart-healthy food. I have to tell you, there’s a ton of great food out there that tastes great, is actually good for your body and is easy to cook. I was pretty shocked and happy to discover this. My attempts at cooking seem to be improving, too. Well, somewhat anyway. This week’s topics was around the importance of a healthy lifestyle and heart disease. Basically, Dr. Diehl says, the only person who can change your body for the better is you. There’s no magic pill, no instant solution to correcting an unhealthy body. It’s all a matter of making the right choices in eating, drinking and exercising. Before the sessions began I wasn’t quite sure how heart disease had anything to do with me. After all, I exercise regularly and I’m young. I should be okay, right? Well, remember my good

buddy Mr. Ronald McDonald? Turns out he isn’t such a good buddy after all. All of the fat and cholesterol from his greasy burgers and fries are sitting in my arteries as we speak. That’s right, no matter how active or young I am the after effects of that food will constantly build in my arteries as long as I keep eating it. Pretty gross, really, and after getting a close look on video of a clogged artery, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stomach McDonalds again anytime soon. “The more often you go to the golden arches, the faster you’ll get to the pearly gates,â€? says Dr. Diehl. After seeing that goo-ďŹ lled artery, I can see why. All of that fat and cholesterol builds up until the arteries begin to ďŹ ll and make it difďŹ cult for blood to pass through. Add a blood clot and you’ve got a heart attack or stroke. “You’re only as young or as old as your arteries,â€? Dr. Diehl says. So I’m going to work at keeping my arteries young, stick with my water and stay away from those foods I know are nothing but trouble. WEEK 2: JULIE LEARNS THAT HEALTHY EATING BENEFITS ARE WORTH IT After a few weeks of keeping tabs of what goes on my plate I’m beginning to see how so many people, myself

included, fall into the habit of eating poorly. It takes time to prepare a nutritious meal, much longer than the three minutes it used to take me to zap my less-than-healthy macaroni and cheese in the microwave. Despite all the time it takes to plan and prepare, however, I’m much happier with the food I’ve been eating since I started the Complete Health Improvement Program. It seems like my body is, too. I’ve cut the majority of cholesterol, sugar, fat and salt out of my daily intake and I’m surprised at the energy I’ve gained. So aside from the many things I’ve learned at CHIP so far, perhaps the biggest lesson has been that the fast-food lifestyle sure is a lot easier and faster, but certainly isn’t better in the long run. A tour through the drive-thru and a zap of the microwave may be quick, but the result is a more tired and sluggish version of me. Hans Diehl, lecturer and CHIP creator, made an interesting point in one of this week’s lectures which focused on topics like smoking, cholesterol, diabetes and ďŹ ber. “You are the architects of your own health,â€? Dr. Diehl said. This really got me thinking. Positive lifestyle changes, from getting the proper amount of exercise to making healthy

food choices, can be seen as the building blocks, but it takes me, the CHIP architect, to put those blocks together to form good health. In this job as a healthy lifestyle architect, commitment seems to be a recurring theme from sticking to an exercise regime to committing the necessary time to make the right choices and prepare the proper food. The reward is a healthy body and possibly a longer life and what could be better than that? It seems things are rolling along in the CHIP program for my fellow CHIPERS as well. Many seem to be reaping the beneďŹ ts of healthy choices already. Many have also found gained energy and some have even experienced a drop in blood sugar and a decrease in arthritic swelling. It’s hard to believe the contents on one’s plate can control positive health changes, but for me the proof is in the pudding. O yes, make that heart-healthy rice pudding. CHIP begins in Williams Lake October 21, check it out at one of two FREE info sessions on October 10 and 15 at the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre 26 Woodland Dr. For info call 778-412-5279 or email: info@ Full Info Online at www.silverhillsontheroad. com/wlchip

Country music star set to play Williams Lake

Bal Dosanj photo

Michelle Wright is making a stop in Williams Lake Oct. 17 during her Songs from the Hall Tour. Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Country fans are in for a treat this month, with Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Michelle Wright set to grace the stage at the Gibraltar Room October 17. Wright is hitting the road across B.C. with a six-piece band to perform her Songs from the Hall Tour, inspired by being inducted into the Hall of Fame last year, an honour which the multi-award winning artist wasn’t too sure about at first. “My first reaction was I thought, ‘Aren’t I a little young for this?’” said Wright, 51, during a telephone interview from Ontario, where the country singer was visiting her sister. But it didn’t take long for Wright to change her mind. “It’s been one of the

greatest joys of my life (being inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame) ... and it inspired this tour.” Wright said she will be playing about a dozen of her own songs; recognizable favorites such as He Would Be Sixteen, Safe in the Arms of Love and Take It Like a Man. But what makes her Songs from the Hall Tour so special, is that Wright will also be singing another 12 or so songs she has personally selected to sing by other Hall of Fame inductees such as Anne Murray, Al Green, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, U2, Joni Mitchell and, one of her greatest musical influences growing up in Merlin, Ontario; Aretha Franklin. “The sounds of Motown were really significant for me,” Wright said, explaining the close

proximity of her small farming community to Detroit. “And unlike my mother’s generation, I was raised with access to music, so my influences are varied.” For current artists, Wright said she “loves Beyonce,” the band No Doubt and considers Canadian singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette to be “a brilliant, brilliant woman,” while in country one man stands out. “When it comes to country, Keith Urban is definitely my favourite.” Wright said the Songs from the Hall Tour has given her the chance to revisit many songs she otherwise wouldn’t perform, classics she says survive the test of time. “It’s been very interesting researching songs for a tour like this. Narrowing down greats songs is really challenging.” Wright will for sure be performing Natural Woman, debuted in 1971 by Carole King on the album Tapestry, one of the best selling albums of all-time. “It’s this amazing performance,” Wright said of King singing Natural Woman on Tapestry. “It’s flawless.” Wright will also bring to life stories told through song by Ian Tyson “one of our great voices,” Judy Collins, and the “brilliant” Joni Mitchell.

“Music with substance was allow (back then) because people had patience enough to listen to the music and hear the story,” Wright said of how the music industry has evolved. Wright said in today’s day and age artists have to find a way to be true to themselves “regardless of the pressure” to write only short catchy tunes. Wright said she’s thankful she started her career when she did, but also accepts the new way of music too. “It is what it is. I acknowledge it - the challenge is to find out how to impact people within those boundaries.” Williams Lake’s concert will be the fourth show in 10-concert tour of B.C. Wright will play a couple concerts on the prairies also, then head to Ontario for another 14-stop tour. Wright is currently in Tennessee just outside of Nashville with her husband. Tickets are available at Margetts Meats and Bob’s Shoes.

Searching for killers Advanced DNA technology and ongoing efforts by an RCMP unit dedicated to investigating the Highway of Tears missing women files, provided some long awaited answers for the MacMillen family of Lac la Hache. On August 9, 1974 Colleen MacMillen left home with the plan to hitchhike to a friend’s house nearby. She walked up to Highway 97 and disappeared. She was found murdered off a logging road 46 kilometres south of where she was last seen. Police announced last week that they have DNA evidence linking deceased U.S. sex offender Bobby Jack Fowler to the murder of the 16-year-old, making it the oldest case ever solved through Interpol. Investigators have said Fowler is also a “strong suspect” in the death of 19-year-old Gale

Weys, who was last seen alive in Clearwater in 1973 after trying to hitchhike home to Kamloops and Pamela Darlington, also 19, whose body was found in the Kamloops area in 1973. Fowler was a loner and a transient, who worked briefly as a roofer in Prince George, but little more is known of his time in B.C. in the 1970s. He is also suspected in unsolved murders in the U.S. The police are hoping the public may have more information about him to help fill in the missing pieces. Police say Fowler typically stayed and lived in motels or rented, and liked old cars that he drove until they quit. The sisters of Gale Weys are urging the public to come forward with any information anyone may have to help the

RCMP’s Project E-PANA Task Force. The Task Force was created in 2005 to investigate the series of unsolved murders with links to Highway 16. The goal of the Task Force is to determine if a serial killer, or killers, is responsible for murdering young women traveling along major highways in BC. To date, E-PANA officers have interviewed 2,500 people, collected 750 DNA samples and searched 726 boxes of evidence. In their news release last week, police indicated Fowler is just one of many suspects they have linked to the Highway of Tears files - confirming more than one killer is responsible for the disappearance of the women. If anyone has information that may help the Task Force, call 1-877-543-4822.

Where’s the middle school? With the announcement behind them, School District 27 trustees are meeting with the public starting this week for a series of workshops and think tanks to discuss their Initial Options Report. The long waited report, unveiled at a public meeting last Tuesday, calls for the closure of four elementary schools, one junior high and a reconfiguring of the high schools. Yup, it’s pretty much what the Board has been saying it was going to do for the past five years. Okay, there’s no “super elementary” this time around, but the rest was somewhat predictable. There’s no denying our declining enrollment. We all guessed

that buildings would close, but the Board is going to have a hard time selling a grade 7 to 12 high school on two campuses to a bunch of parents who wanted a middle school. It will be interesting to see whether the public will feel it’s been consulted in a meaningful way (again, considering they’ve said over and over they want a middle school) and whether people will even bother to turn up. At last week’s meeting, (in which poor ol’ 100 Mile didn’t even get a video feed) the trustees presented their one option that they’re going to the public with. They say they’re not married to that option, but there’s no other

option and no option is just not an option at this point. What? If you strip the plan right down, what the Board has done is eliminate options for students on the elementary level by targetting schools of choice programming, and, in theory, give more options and a structure to compliment 21st Century Learning to the higher grades. Even if you don’t agree with what they’ve come up with, the trustees do deserve our respect for at least coming up with something, even if they still didn’t give us a middle school. So, get out to the public meetings and let them know what you think again before it’s too late.

Chilcotin Road Elementary students Megan Tenale, Syles Laceese, Marie Holland and Tiara Solomon are all smiles as they end the school day with a bus ride home to their homes out west. The School Board is proposing a new school configuration in Williams Lake where grade 7s will be taken out of the elementary schools and sent to a one school, two campus configuration emcompassing grades 7 through 12.

PART 2: Running Away - There’s no need for sympathy, please One spring a little boy made a wooden ramp for his bicycle. But his front wheel slid off the side, and the little fellow crashed down and skinned his knees. When he looked up, his parents were gazing elsewhere, so he decided not to cry, and headed his for the ramp again . . . If we tried to live crash-free, we wouldn’t marry, have children, drive, or get up in the morning, but that would exclude us from life completely. No one wants to imitate that cautious man whose family was

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett denied his insurance when he died, because it was said he had never really lived! But we don’t need continuous empathy. For one thing, many of our mostfeared moments never happen. Plane crash

deaths are a mere 1 in 800,000, so we are far more likely to choke to death on a simple piece of food! And we are thirteen times more apt to get hit by lightning than win a jackpot! Shocking! ( Bi l l Br y s o n , Saturday Evening Post, September 1988, “Life’s Little Gambles.”) What should be done when adversity hits? A short time later, the same little fellow grabbed a toque, pulled it down over his eyes, and sprinted straight into a wall. Fun? No! Dangerous?

Hardly! Should he be consoled? You decide! He did quit finally, after the running and thumping produced a couple smacks of learning! What if we kindly cuddled, kissed and rescued every time nasty things happened? Heaping portions of sympathy are warranted for life’s calamities, but coddling can do away with drive and self-determination. When incidents aren’t disastrous, could we remark, “Uh-oh, fell down there, hero? You’ll be ok!” Or when the whining starts, per-

haps we could mutter, “Sometimes that happens to me, too. I think you can handle this.” As grit is more important than brains, there may be other responses more inspiring than comfort. When we get a scrape, flub a speech, struggle with a tricky friendship, or fail a grade - too much sympathy can be sticky. If we insist on making a hobby of collecting the stuff it will be to our gooey detriment. In 1966 a high school class graduated from an experimental

four-year “self-esteem” curriculum. Each student had passed, of course, after being petted and consoled along the way. But when the results were in, there was one glaring difference between that class and others. Those graduates weren’t doing better they just thought so! Sympathetic indulgence had shriveled their development and glued their minds shut as well. Many situations deserve hugs and reassurance, but excess hovering is a life extinguisher. Expecting oth-

ers to notice and care for every unhappy trifle is so limiting! If we could avoid pampering our little wounds, perhaps courage and creativity would appear again. How we handle life’s ‘bumps’, (personally, corporately, and governmentally), will determine if we are sucked toward being whiners or becoming heroes. And it starts long before we can ride a bicycle. The last “Running Away” will offer a few whimpers on how to become a honest-togoodness victim.

Residents encouraged to view pool study Kerry Cooke Williams Lake Mayor Victoria has been a great city to host the annual Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention. On Monday, I attended a BC Mayor’ Caucus meeting, where 140 mayors discussed challenges and opportunities in B.C. municipalities. We agreed that long-term, stable, and predictable funding from senior governments is necessary going forward, so cities and towns can maintain infrastructure and accommodate growth. The mayors shared ideas on how to provide stable service levels to residents, and we heard encouraging words from Minister of Community, Sport, and Community Development Bill

Bennett. He said he would like to see a closer relationship between the federal and provincial governments and municipalities. On Tuesday, Council had a very productive meeting with Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond. She recognized the past work the RCMP and the City have done to reduce crime and took our requests seriously. We also met with the Interior Health Authority and Ministry of Health. I encourage everyone to make sure they have their say on the feasibility study being presented for possible renovations to the Sam Ketcham Pool, which are coming up next month. Whether you

A REMINDER ABOUT RECYCLING CARTS The only items that are permitted go into the curb side recycling cart are: 1. Paper products – ofce paper, magazines, newspapers. 2. Cardboard – corrugated cardboard and regular cardboard such as a cereal box. 3. Plastics – must have the recycling symbol on it and the number inside the symbol must be 1 through 7. N o Styrofoam allowed. 4. Metal food cans – food or beverage containers. Note: all above mentioned products must be clean. The most common question asked by residents is: Can GLASS be put in the curb side recycling cart? The short answer is NO


PLEASE DO NOT put glass in the recycling cart. Glass in the recycling cart could end up broken. Broken glass spoils the recyclables and puts the workers who do the sorting at a great risk of injury. Instead of putting glass in the curb side recycling cart, it can be taken to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station or Canadian Tire. DO’S


✔ Have the garbage/recycling cart at the curb before 7am ✔ Take the garbage/recycling cart off the curb the same day as it is collected. ✔ Put shredded paper in a bag. Loose paper may escape when tipping the cart. ✔ Record the serial number on the side of your cart to indentify your cart from your neighbors. ✔ Ensure the lid of the cart is fully closed. Partially open lids will not be picked up. ✔ Clean all recyclables before putting them in the recycling container.

✘ Don’t put your carts on the street the night before your collection day. The cart’s subject to vandalism. ✘ Don’t put the garbage/ recycling carts any closer together than 1 meter. ✘ Don’t leave your cart on the curb. This interferes with snow removal or street cleaning. ✘ Don’t put your cart any closer than 2 meters from any obstruction such as vehicles or landscaping. ✘ Don’t take the carts when you move. The carts belong to that address, NOT TO YOU.

Avoid putting organic material, such as grass clippings, branches, or garden waste, in the solid waste cart. These items only add unnecessary weight to the solid waste stream and increase the costs for every resident in Williams Lake. This material can be brought to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station on Frizzi Road and dropped off free of charge. Other recyclable material, such as glass, lead acid batteries, or propane bottles that cannot be put in the curb side recycling cart can be dropped off at the Central Cariboo Transfer Station. Even more recyclable items can be brought to several locations in Williams Lake that participate in the product stewardship program.

A list of these companies can be found at the Encorp website (http://, the Encorp toll free number 1-800-330-9767, or by calling the BC Recycling Hotline at 1-800-667-4321. Any questions can be directed to City Hall at 250 392-2311.


The City of Williams Lake Water Division will be conducting cleaning and ushing of water reservoirs and mains starting Monday October 1, ending October 26, 2012. This annual maintenance is required to ensure water quality meets Drinking Water guidelines. The areas that will be affected are: South Lakeside, North Lakeside, Mackenzie Avenue from Highway 97 South to the Glendale area, the downtown core up to Comer Street, and the Golf Course. Residents may experience a slight discoloration of their tap water but running a tap for a short period of time will clear this up. All inquiries can be directed to the City of Williams Lake Water Division at 392-1785. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Health improvement program starts October 21

Submitted by Cameron Johnston CHIP (Community Health Improvement Program) begins in Williams Lake Oct. 21 with volunteer codirectors Dr. Glenn Gill and Chrys Mills, RN. CHIP is a unique health education program with proven results in preventing and reversing chronic diseases including heart disease and diabetes. Two FREE info sessions will be held on Wednesday, October 10 and Monday, October 15 at 7 p.m. at the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre, 26 Woodland Rd. Everyone is welcome to come and check out this great lifestyle makeover program. Full info online at: wlchip It is true. In 30 days CHIP can help you

reduce your risk of heart disease, normalize blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, stabilize fasting blood sugar, reduce BMI, improve sleep, resilience and depression. CHIP offers participants the complete health education they need to make wise diet and lifestyle changes and the help and motivation to stick with them. Dr. Gill, a local physican and co-director says, “it’s easy to tell people they need to make changes in their lifestyle for better health but how to accomplish that is not so easy. CHIP shows why a lifestyle change may be needed but also gives the motivation and support to continue with healthy changes.” Dr. Stefan De Swardt, another local physican, first heard about CHIP from a patient attending a program in Quesnel and since then he has had several patients attend there. "CHIP is a great program. All my patients that have attended have had big reductions in weight and cholesterol. I strongly recommend it," says DeSwardt. “When a per-

son understands how their body works and what the foods they eat do to their body, they have the education they need to understand not only why they need to make these changes, but how to do it. With knowledge comes power, and with the power CHIP participants get from the program, they are able to make the changes necessary and have the support to stick with them,” continues Dr. Gill. The CHIP program meets three times a week for four weeks with video presentations at each session by the dynamic speaker and founder of CHIP, Dr. Hans Diehl. Included in the program are before and after blood work and health screenings to help participants see the amazing improvement they make in just 30 days! There will also be healthy food samples each evening, excellent reference materials and a graduation banquet for family and friends. “I have taken on the role of co-director because I am a believer in the CHIP program,” says Chrys Mills a local nurse. “I know we will see great results here as

participants have been seen in communities around the world.” When you enroll in CHIP, the low materials fee of $295 per person or $395 per couple includes: a trained facilitator to coach you to better health in 30 days, a helpful team of friendly people to teach you skills in cooking and preparing new foods, two health screens, two clinical lifestyle evaluations, dynamic health and lifestyle lectures, the CHIP textbook and workbook and other helpful materials plus ongoing support to help you stay on the program for a long healthy life. We expect CHIP participants in Williams Lake to experience results similar to those from the thousands of other places where the program has been. For example, one community in Washington state saw in participants, a 17% Cholesterol drop with some participants dropping up to 40%, weight losses averaged from 7 to 29 pounds per participant with blood pressure, triglycerides, and heart rates also showing dramatic improvement. Plus diabetics showed great

improvement in lowering insulin with some dropping their need for it completely in just 8 weeks by continuing on the program with guidance from their physician. No drugs, no gimmicks, just straight forward inspiring education on how to make

healthy choices so that you can enjoy a lifetime of better health. Come to one of two FREE Info sessions and check this out. Info sessions will be held on Wednesday, October 10 and Monday, October 15 at 7 PM at the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre, 26 Woodland

In late July, we have our club achievement day. This is when all the members get together at the Miocene Community Hall at the barn, and we show our animals as a club. This usually is a spread of two days because we have so many members and so many projects. This year it took us four days, because there is no arena at the Barn for the horse kids to show their horses, so they go into town at the Williams Lake stockyards. Photography was done on a Wednesday night because we had so many photography kids and not enough time on the Saturday to do it. After all this, it’s the time all the kids look forward to all year, the Williams Lake and District 4-H Show and Sale. This year it was held from August 17th to the 22nd. Most of the 4-H families camp at the stockyards so the kids are there to take care of their animals. This year our club did really well, coming out with the many winners from a lot of projects. Then, the Wednesday night was the sale and the wrap up of the Show

and Sale. Our club would like to thank everyone who came out to the Show and Sale. And thank all our sponsors for the trophies and most of all, all the buyers who came out and purchased one or more sale projects. Without your support this would not be possible. Our last club event will be our awards banquet on October 20th. We are having a dinner, awards and then cake auction, fallowing with a game planned for the club. All of our projects in the Rose Lake Miocene 4-H club this year were are as follows: horse, sheep, swine, beef, photography, foods, dog, cloverbuds, small engines, and rabbit. In the past we have had gardening and poultry. This year we will be looking for new leaders. If anyone is interested in being a leader or joining 4-H you can contact our main leader Marty at 778-412-4122. Our first meeting of the year will be in January.

Glanville and Dodge adversaries in Metro league Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor Two Williams Lake soccer talents are still applying their trade at the highest amateur level in the province. Both Ryan Glanville and Brent Dodge are competing in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Premier Division for their respective clubs with Glanville lacing up the boots for West Vancouver and Dodge for North Vancouver. The two lakecity boys grew up playing soccer together and were teammates on the 2006 CIS National Champion UBC

Thunderbirds squad. The pair were adversaries Saturday though as they squared off against one another in week four of the season. This game is known as the North Shore derby as they are the lone two VMSL teams that are based north of the Lions Gate Bridge. “It’s nice having Brent playing in the league and seeing a familiar hometown face,” said Glanville. “Our goal with West Van every year is to try and win the league title and the provincial cup but there’s so much talent in the league it’s

tough.” West Van has been a mainstay near the top of the 12-team VMSL the past few years and entered the game with two wins and a loss from their opening three contests. West Van finished second overall last season finishing four points back of champions ICST Pegasus of Surrey. However, West Van did capture some silverware this past season winning the Imperial Cup, a knockout tournament featuring all the premier league and division one sides. Dodge and his Norvan side were

recently promoted to the premier league this season by virtue of finishing in the top two in division one last year. Norvan has struggled out of the gates this season picking up a draw and two losses in three matches. Saturday’s contest saw West Van pick up a narrow 2-1 victory as they scored the winning goal with about five minutes left. Glanville, who plays striker, gave West Van a one goal lead scoring on a header from a corner kick midway through the first half. Norvan scored to make it 1-1 just before

half time. Glanville, who works as a computer technician, is now in his sixth season with West Van. The side won the Province Cup two years ago and represented B.C. at the BMO Canadian Club Championships in Saskatoon, SK. Glanville finished third in league scoring last season and is consistently among the top five and putting the ball in net. He has been a VMSL all star in four of his six seasons as well. This year the VMSL all stars played FC Edmonton of the North American Soccer League and held their

own, losing 3-1. The VMSL also featured a number of former professional players including about a dozen former Whitecaps. “I’ve had a lot of success playing for West Van including winning the Imperial Cup twice and went to nationals and won the province cup back in 2010,” said Glanville. “It was also nice to make the all-star team and get the chance to test yourself against professional players.” Dodge, a pharmaceutical sales rep, is now in his third year for Norvan and the starting central defender was

instrumental in earning them a promotion back to the VMSL last season. Both Glanville and Dodge are Columneetza Secondary graduates. With the victory West Van move to three wins and a loss and their nine points have them in second place just one behind leaders Sapperton Rovers. Norvan sit in a three way tie for last place with the lone point. West Van play Delta Hurricanes tomorrow night with a chance to jump to the top of the league table. Norvan battle Surrey Firefighters in week five.

Stocking vehicle roadside repair kit a must Regardless of a vehicle's age, a roadside emergency can occur at any time. Drivers should be prepared with a basic kit of tools and equipment to get the car back on the road as soon as possible. At the very least, a

roadside emergency can be an a minor inconvenience. At the worst, it can compromise the safety of the driver and passengers. Anything from a blown-out tire to an overheated engine can necessitate pulling over for a quick fix.

Having the right tools can make the process go far more smoothly and help drivers avoid the seemingly endless wait for service personnel to arrive. Stocking a roadside repair kit requires some necessities. It's also a good idea to routinely check the stock of the kit to be sure everything is in working order. Here are the items to keep on hand. First aid kit: Handling major or minor emergencies may require a first aid kit to mend scratches, abrasions or minor burns. Become familiar with the kit before it is needed. Cellular phone: It's never a good idea to talk on a cell phone while driving. However, a mobile phone can prove invaluable if there is an emergency. Simply call for assistance instead of having to seek out a phone or flag down a motorist. Flares or warning light: A breakdown at

night or when visibility is poor can be dangerous. Keep a warning light, caution triangle or flares in the trunk to illuminate the location of the vehicle. Inflated spare tire: Always keep a spare tire on hand, as tire blowouts or leaks tend to be one of the most common causes of breakdowns. Be sure to have a tire iron, jack, and lug wrench.

Spare fuses: A burntout fuse may be responsible for an electrical problem. Replacing the fuse is an easy fix. Jumper cables: A dead battery can be revived with jumper cables, provided another car is available to offer the jump. A portable battery booster is another handy tool in case there are no other cars to recharge the battery.

Simple ways to add years to a vehicle's life

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 replace-

ments 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 recom-

mended 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 expec-

tancy 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. * Look good, feel good. The credo of "look good, feel good" isn't only applicable to humans. In fact, a car that looks good likely feels good as well.

Tire maintenance essential to staying safe on the road Maintaining a vehicle is a great way to stay safe on the road while extending the car's life. Routine maintenance can keep a car running like new for years as long as vehicle owners stay on top of things and stick to a maintenance schedule. Most drivers are aware of when to get their oil changed and other fluids checked, but not all drivers know how to maintain their vehicle's tires. Proper tire maintenance makes a car safer for drivers and their passengers and can even pad a driver's pocket with a little extra money. * Routinely check tire pressure.The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes that tire-related crashes are most often caused by underinflated tires. Underinflation isn't always caused by a leak. In fact, gradual loss of pressure is natural, particularly when the seasons change and temperatures dip. An underinflated tire makes handling difficult and can even cause structural damage to a vehicle. Drivers should check their vehicle's tire pressure at least once a month. Those who have long commutes should check their tire pressure more frequently, and it's always a good idea to check tire pressure before and after a long road trip. Recommended tire pressures are listed in the owner's manual. * Look for abnormal wear and tear. Tires will wear down over time, gradually losing tread. However, drivers should inspect tires for excessive wear and tear, which could be

indicative of other issues, including underinflation and alignment problems with steering and suspension. Additional issues to look for include bulges or cracks on the sidewalls or tread and any signs of a punctured tire. * Rotate tires. Most drivers have heard of tire rotation but might not know how often tires should be rotated or even why rotation is necessary. The owner's manual will solve the first problem, identifying how often tires should be rotated (most suggest every 6,000 miles). As for why it's good to rotate tires, doing so helps achieve even tread and extend the life of the tires. Tires are expensive, and rotation can help drivers get more bang for their buck. Drivers of front-wheel drive vehicles will notice their front tires wear down faster than their rear tires. That's because the front tires are doing most of the work, bearing the brunt of the force of braking, steering and driving. Rotating tires effectively levels the playing field. * Stay balanced. Sometimes tires become unbalanced. When taking a car in for routine maintenance, ask the mechanic to see if there are any issues regarding balance. Out of balance tires can cause significant issues that stretch beyond just uneven tread wear. An out of balance tire can wear down the vehicle's suspension. When driving at highway speeds, drivers might notice a considerable thumping. This is often indicative of an out of balance tire.


* Stay cool. Sudden tire failure can often be traced back to overheated tires. A tire can overheat for a number of reasons, including aggressive driving. Frequently driving on coarse surfaces or at high speeds can also increases tire temperatures, as does ambient temperature. Driving at high speeds on a very hot day increases the risk of sudden tire failure, as does driving at high speeds on coarse surfaces. To reduce tire temperature, avoid doing these things simultaneously. If it's an especially hot day, for example, don't drive aggressively and maintain lower speeds. * Don't mix and match. A vehicle's balance can be affected significantly if owners mix and match their tires. Having different tires on the left and right sides is likely to upset a car's balance. When installing tires, do so in front or rear pairs or even complete sets. Pairs should also be the same size, brand and type, and should have the same tread wear as well. Should one tire go bad, it's almost always worth it to buy two tires. When buying two, always put the two new tires on the rear wheels, regardless of which type of transmission (rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, etc.) the vehicle has. The rear wheels need maximum traction so the vehicle can remain stable. * Don't overload a tire. Check tires for their maximum load range, which will be listed on the tire sidewall. This maximum load should never be exceeded. Doing so

Tire maintenance, including routinely checking tire pressure, is an essential element to safe driving.

will increase tire wear and shorten the tire's life. Excessive load also increases the risk of sudden tire failure. It's important to note the maximum passenger and cargo load intended by the vehicle manufacturer is often significantly less than what the vehicle can actually hold. But drivers must adhere to this figure to ensure their vehicles are safe and reduce the risk of sudden tire failure.

for Bosch, the world's largest supplier of wiper blades to vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket. "Premium bracketless blades -sometimes referred to as 'beam blades' -- are specifically designed to improve driving visibility in snow, mist, drizzle and heavy rain," he said. Why Go For Wiper Blades Based On Advanced Technology? As modern windshields have become more curved due to a growing emphasis on aerodynamics for the sake of fuel efficiency, in 2005 a 'bracketless' wiper blade for the front windshield, Bosch ICON(TM) appeared on the scene. This was not surprising since Bosch has been an innovator in automotive windshield wipers

snow, with no missed spots or streaks. The bracketless Bosch ICON features a combination of dual rubber technology, a weather shield connector system and an aerodynamic wind spoiler. Air flowing over the wind spoiler creates down force, helping it to hug the windshield uniformly and the enclosed bracketless steel tension springs prevent snow and ice build-up. ICON's bracketless blades consistently provide the best wipe available. According to Vasis, bracketless wiper blades represent an upgrade for most vehicles that are currently equipped with conventional blades. The correct fit for a vehicle is based on a combination of the blade length and the curvature of the windshield. Bosch recommends consulting the catalog on its Web site for the exact part number for any application. Furthermore, because wiper blades such as

ICON are designed for the driver or passenger side of the windshield, much like a right and left glove, it ensures a cleaner wipe. Plus the fx dual-rubber compound reduces 'chatter'and makes for a longer performance life -- up to 20 percent longer life than other premium wiper blades, Vasis said. Choices Widen as Technology Develops The wiper blade portfolio from suppliers such as Bosch reflects a wide array of choices based on technology developments over the years. For instance, Bosch Evolution(TM) -- also based on patented bracketless technology -- is an all-season wiper blade. It represents a more affordable tier in premium bracketless wipers designed to provide excellent performance and value. With only 13 part numbers, Evolution covers 95 percent of vehicles with pin arm, hook arm and side lock wiper blade applications.

Guichon named Lieutenant Governor of BC Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced Monday the appointment of Judith Guichon as Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. “Mrs. Guichon has dedicated herself to her community, province and country,” said the Prime Minister. “She

is a leader in keeping British Columbia’s agriculture and cattle industries, environmentally sound and she has worked hard to promote and protect the ranchers of British Columbia.” Guichon has had a successful career in ranching and intro-

duced the Holistic Management method to ranchers in British Columbia. She is the owner and operator of Gerard Guichon Ranch Limited in the Nicola Valley where she resides with two of her four children. Guichon has worked with several organiza-

tions including the Fraser Basin Council of B.C., the Grasslands Conservation Council of B.C. and recently completed her twoyear term as the president of the British Columbia Cattlemen’s Association. Premier Christy Clark also issued a

statement about the appointment, congratulating Guichon. “She has a deep appreciation for the history and traditions of British Columbia and has spent a lifetime ensuring that we all stay connected to our roots – particularly through her work with

the BC Cattlemen’s Association,” Clark stated. L i e u t e n a n t Governors are appointed by His Excellency the Governor General on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. They serve five-year terms, during which they act as their

provinces’ vice-regal representatives. Prime Minister Harper also took the opportunity to thank the Honourable Steven L. Point for his dedicated service as Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, which began in October 2007.

Council meets with Premier, Ministers, at UBCM convention Williams Lake City Council held key meetings with provincial cabinet ministers this week at the annual Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention in Victoria. Justice Minister and Attorney General

Shirley Bond recognized efforts by the City and RCMP to address crime, and was given an update on the recent increase in crime. Council asked for the restoration of Prolific Offender Program funding for Williams Lake, and shared its success. Minister Bond

confirmed the program was a success not only in Williams Lake, but in the other five communities where it was implemented. Council also informed the minister of the need for increased capacity for Crown counsel and judges in the community, and Minister

Bond said that issue will be examined. In a meeting with Premier Christy Clark, Minister of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson, and Energy, Mines, and Natural Gas Rich Coleman, Council shared its recent reso-

lution supporting the New Prosperity project, provided First Nations and environmental concerns are addressed. Council shared its success in building positive, successful relationships with First Nations despite disagreements over the mine project.

The premier and ministers were very supportive of the City’s efforts. “All of our meetings in Victoria were positive and constructive,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “We took full advantage of every opportunity to present our issues and concerns

to the premier and cabinet ministers, because that is one of the best ways to ensure your community’s needs are on the forefront of their minds.” A full report on the UBCM convention will be presented at an upcoming City Council meeting.

held, as the family was in Australia because their father, Rocco, took part in a year long teacher exchange. Most years the Cariboo has blest this event with good weather as was the case this year, with 48 people as well as two Weiner dogs in attendance. There have been two or three occasions in years past, when folks had to head in the house or onto the back deck due to rain but it never delayed the games for more than an hour. The start time is loosely scheduled for 1 – 2 PM but those who show up later are almost always fitted onto a team at the same low, 1982 price of 25 cents. Inflation has not hit this event! There have been as many as 92 (counting a pack of 4 or 5 dogs) and never less than 25 taking part in this tradition. Usually there are 12-16 teams competing for the right to share the “Pasta Open” Trophy over the following year. This unique trophy is a colander (sieve) mounted on two layers of fir with two bowlers in their Sunday best on each side of this holey cup. The 1st winning team was: Paul Carnes, Janet Catalano, Bill Wood and son Matthew Wood. 30 years later the winners were:

The Thrower-Ups (not to be confused with runner-ups, as in running events) were: Marion Bayliff, Monica (Am I blushing?) Routtu, Tim Routtu, and “Shy” John Sykes. A special event was started this year in honour of the 30th “Pasta Open.” It is called the, “Colpo Caldo Provocazione” or roughly translated as the Hot, Shot Challenge! It is an individual event, where

everyone in attendance has the opportunity to display his/her bocce ball throwing skills. After several throw-offs rounds, the 1st winner of the “Colpo, Caldo Provocazione” was Deb Radolla. She was immediately awarded several locally, organically grown, Italian heads of garlic plus an undisclosed prize to be received at a future date. This annual event is not a competition for the faint of heart. Casualties include a broken toe for one young observer too close to the action and a cut on the shin

that required stitches which resulted from walking into a horseshoe post in the dark. [Some unnamed person overlooked pulling that out.] One year the RCMP was called because some bocce ball competitor who must have been out of the competition, took on the task of starting the end-of-night bonfire. Becoming a wee bit zealous and entranced, his goal was to see if he (yes, of course it was a he) could scorch the moon. Well, he was a little short of his target that night and that didn’t include just the moon!

and women prefer to workout in the morning, when temperatures might be more amenable to a morning jog or gyms might be less crowded than during peak hours. However, morning exercise enthusiasts should know that a healthy breakfast before working out can provide them with more energy, leading to a more effective workout. Men and women who don't eat before their morning workouts are bound to feel more sluggish, as the majority of the energy from the previous night's dinner has already been used up. A light breakfast of whole-grain cereal or bread paired with lowfat milk an hour before

working out can provide the added boost your body needs and make your morning exercise routine that much more effective. Fruit, including bananas or a few apple slices, can also do the trick. Just try to avoid working out on an empty stomach and give yourself enough time between eating and working out for the added energy boost to take effect. * Don't overdo it. A small meal prior to working out is generally the best way to go. You can workout after a large meal, but you'll need to give yourself more time between eating and exercising, ideally several hours. If you like to workout after a long day

Provided it is not smothered in butter or oil-based flavorings, popcorn is a relatively healthy treat to enjoy. Dieters have long relied on plain popcorn to staunch hunger pangs. But recent research has also indicated that popcorn is much more than a fluff snack; it is a heathy one as well. In March of 2012, researchers from the University of Scranton reported to the American Chemical Society that popcorn may contain high levels of healthful antioxidants -- levels that may be equal to or higher than some fruits and vegetables. Undressed popcorn in your diet can provide needed fiber and antioxidants. Want to learn more about popcorn facts? Test your knowledge with this quiz.

at the office, eat a light snack, ideally an hour before you expect to begin your workout, so your blood sugar won't be too low. In addition, a light snack before a workout might provide some extra energy that will come in handy when you hit that treadmill or start lifting those weights. * Choose the right snacks. A snack before working is alright, just make sure it's the right snack. A bag of potato chips, for example, is not an ideal preworkout snack, as it might produce an adverse effect, making you feel sluggish as you prepare to exercise. Fresh fruit, energy bars or drinks, granola bars or even a fruit smoothie will quell your hunger and help you maintain proper blood sugar levels. * Find something to eat after you exercise. Eating after you exercise is also important. After working out, eating a meal with carbohydrates will promote muscle growth and recovery, restoring your fuel supplies that were lost during your workout. . Eating protein after a workout is also important. Doing so is beneficial when trying to build

muscle, and protein also promotes muscle repair. Many fitness experts feel the meal after a workout is the most important meal of the day, but just be sure yours contains both carbohydrates and protein. * Don't forget fluids. Fluids are part of your diet as well, and they're especially important when exercising. Whether your typical exercise routine is vigorous or not, you are going to lose fluids when working out, sometimes a large amount of fluids. It's important to stay hydrated throughout the day, but it's very important to begin a workout with adequate fluids in your body and to replenish those fluids during and after your workout as well. Water is adequate for those whose workouts are 60 minutes or less, but choose a sports drink if you workout for more than an hour at a time. The sports drink will help you maintain your electrolyte balance and give you more energy as you're working. Diet and exercise make great bedfellows, and men and women can use their diets to make their workouts that much more effective.

IN THEATRES TAKEN 2 When former CIA operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is targeted by a vengeanceseeking crimelord, he must employ all of his skills to protect his family (Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen) from an army out to kill them.

LOOPER The year is 2077. Time travel has finally been discovered but it’s illegal. It eventually becomes controlled by organized crime groups, who use it as a way of offing people. When they want to get rid of someone, they send them 30 years in the past. Joseph Simmons (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a 25-year-old hitman working for this mob of the future. Joseph, along the other “Loopers” like him, are employed to dispose of people who are sent from the future. Loopers have one mission: to destroy their target. And they’re paid only on the condition that no target must ever escape. Joseph is good at what he does, always getting the job done, until he realizes one hit as his future self (Bruce Willis). He naturally hesitates to do the job and his future self escapes. Having let his target escape, Joseph’s employers are forced to come after him. With the bosses on his tail, the younger Joseph goes on a deadly mission to find his older self and destroy him before he loses everything.

Secret ingredient to cooking a nice turkey There are as many was to cook turkey as there are turkeys... however there will be a lot less of them after this weekend...Do you think turkeys like Thanksgiving? Like you, over the years I have cooked lots of turkeys and I always try to expand my culinary expertise in the world of gobbler cooking. I tried this method several years ago and it produced a very tasty bird. Brine the turkey for at least 12 hours in advance, this helps keep the turkey moist when cooking. Simply stick the turkey in a big plastic bag with water and a couple of

tablespoons of sea salt, let it sit overnight. On the morning of your Thanksgiving feast wash off the bird and pat dry. Here’s the secret ingredient to cooking a nice turkey... Butter, Maple syrup, Fresh Thyme and Oregano with a couple of Sage leaves 2 cups of apple cider 1/3 cup pure maple

syrup 2 tbsp fresh Thyme chopped fine or two tsp of dried 2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano 1 tbsp sage chopped fine 1 ½ tsp fresh grated lemon peel 3/4 cup of butter, softened to room temperature Boil maple syrup and apple cider in a saucepan over medium heat until reduced to ½ cup , this should take about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and put in thyme, oregano and sage along with lemon peel. Whisk in butter until melted and season with

sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Stir and then put bowl in fridge for about an hour. You should be able to mould the ingredients together to form a log shape if you gently roll on wax paper. When ready to cook turkey cut off pieces of the butter-maple syrup and put underneath the breast skin and also the thighs... rub into the turkey can also rub the outside of the turkey for a little more taste and a nice brown skin. The butter, maple syrup log is also good to go in the gravy. Ken’s Country

Leo, allow a friend to be the center of attention so he or she can enjoy his or her moments in the sun at an upcoming social event. Your magnetism can be addicting.

Kitchen and The Advisor Newspaper are putting out my first cookbook and we would like your help...I know many of you have favourite recipes from my weekly cooking column and we would like you to send it to the advisor, and why it is a favourite. Please e-mail your favourite recipe and we will use some of these in the cookbook. Send to I hope you have a very good Thanksgiving weekend. We truly are blessed in Canada and we have much to be thankful for. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

Libra, you are ready to take a leap of faith, but make sure your parachute is on before you do so. Sometimes you tend to err on the side of risky.

Scorpio, sometimes you take on too much. But you have a funny way of making it all work out. You will find this to be the case with a situation that presents itself this week. Sagittarius, if you keep pushing someone to their limits you may not be happy with the results. It might be a better plan to go with a softer method of inspiration. Capricorn, you are ready for a change, but haven’t zeroed in on just what to do as of yet. A deep conversation later this week just might reveal all of the answers. It’s best to act while your motivation is high, Aquarius. Otherwise you are prone to extended periods of inactivity. Make the most of your productive moments. Pisces, you serve as educator this week, and it suits you just fine. It boosts your spirits to help others in unique ways.
