West Fraser announces major capital investment Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor West Fraser delivered some much needed good news to the community of Williams Lake and the forest industry Friday with the announcement of a multimillion dollar investment in its Williams Lake sawmill.

General Manager Matt Ketcham said the company will construct a new planer building, upgrade its machinery and implement state-of-the-art lumber scanning technology. “This investment in technology will enhance our productivity and enable

us to recover more value from every tree we harvest,” said Ketcham to a room full of dignitaries. “We have built our company around investing in our future, our facilities and our people.” Born out of the successes of Quesnel and Williams

mid November. Flinton said the Ward Creek burn even took in a portion of private land owned by the Gang Ranch, who modified their cattle management to assist in the burn. “It’s a quiet conservation that many of the area’s rancher do to help our program do good things on the ground,” said Flinton. “Rancher’s should be recognized for their management efforts. Those rural based businesses really make our programs successful.”

Flinton said more burns are to be conducted at Becher's Prairie, and the Farwell Canyon area west of Williams, weather conditions permitting. The burns will be between 10 and 600 hectares in size, with the largest being about 600 hectares at Ward Creek. Flinton said the burns will decrease sagebrush and Douglasfir encroachment on the critical California bighorn sheep habitat along the Fraser River. Historically, the

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor With temperatures falling below zero and a fresh, light dusting of snow on the ground, hungry men, women and children lined up in Boitanio Park Sunday for a hot bowl of soup. Volunteers from the St. Vincent de Paul Society of the Catholic Church arrived as they usually do just before noon to dish out their homemade soup, ready made sandwiches and hot chocolate to Williams Lake’s waiting needy. Wearing toques and several layers of clothing themselves just to keep warm, last week’s volunteers, such as Ollie and Richard Martens, Ron Savoie, Joe Kohlen and Lorne Lazzarotto, dished out hot food and warm smiles to dozens, including children. “There is a big need here,” said Ollie Richards, who makes the soups with her husband. Eariler this month, the society received a generous donation of garden vegetables from the students and staff of Kwaleen Elementary School which they have used to make their homemade soups and hampers. Ollie said the society always welcomes donations of any kind, whether it’s healthy vegetables from local gardens, wild meat from hunters or warm clothing such as mitts, toques, jackets and even blankets that people can take as they need when coming to get soup. “Let’s face it, some people sleep outside and it’s getting cold,” said Ollie.

grasslands in the Cariboo-Chilcotin were renewed through frequent, low-intensity ground fires. Flinton said such fires prevented tree encroachment, rejuvenated understory plants and maintained more open grasslands and forests with large trees. The reintroduction of managed, lowintensity ground fires to these grasslands is intended to restore and maintain the traditional grassland plant communities that are natural for these areas, he said. The fires are part of an ongoing ecosystem restoration program administered by the provincial government in consultation with First Nations, local ranchers, the B.C. Wildlife Federation and the Cariboo-Chilcotin Conservation Society. Flinton added the government is also working closely with the Esketemc First Nations to conduct grasslands restoration work in the Alkali Lake area.

District hosts out-of-the-box think tank Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Despite rumours to the contrary, School District 27 trustees really do want to hear from the public this week regarding their Initial Options Report says Superintendent Mark Thiessen. “We’re hoping to hear from everyone,” said Thiessen. “We have been trying to get information in different ways, and from as many voices as possible.” This week the district is hosting “out-ofthe-box think tanks” in 100 Mile House and Williams Lake, where they are asking the public to dig deep and

share their thoughts on a long term plan for the district. Trustees want the public to ask themselves what are the challenges of the Initial Options Report, what are the benefits, and what would they do differently. Last month trustees revealed their Initial Options Report, announcing a plan to close three elementary schools (two schools of choice) and reconfigure the two high schools into a one-school, two campus model for Grades 7 through 12 in Williams Lake. Thiessen said in 100 Mile House, which presents a dif-

ferent configuration, the initial feedback is that residents oppose the closing of two of their schools, but also that they want Grade 8s in the high school at PSO rather than in the elementaries. In Williams Lake, initial public feedback suggests people are opposed to having Grade 7s moved up into high school. “We have heard that loudly at the forum,” Theissen said, noting however that the public meetings are just one way the public can have their say. Residents can also state their opinions via email at www. sd27.bc.ca, write

Thiessen said there is also time scheduled for those wishing to give a formal presentation to the Board on options they have come up with. “Our intention is that people bring new ideas,” said Thiessen. Anyone wishing to give formal presentations to the Board is asked to contact the administration office before Thursday.

Outside of her reserve, Moneas said she spent most of her life in Winnipeg surrounded by gang violence with no ties to her First Nations heritage. Moneas said she made the difficult move to seek treatment and change her life for her daughter. "I didn't want her living that life. I had to get away from that - I couldn't do it anymore."

Erho catches the interest of Canadian artist Michelle Wright Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A 150 Mile young woman may have gotten her big break in the country music business last week, after Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame artist Michelle Wright handed her the microphone to sing a song from the crowd. The impromptu performance happened during Wright’s concert at the Gibraltar Room last Wednesday, in which Wright said she could hear Erho’s beautiful voice singing along with her to Wright’s song Nobody’s Girl. Erho, 22, didn’t miss a beat and sang the chorus two times over, then told Wright she’d see her at her Kamloops concert on Saturday to give her a demo. “I’m still shaking,” said an excited Charli-Anne Erho after the show. Her grandmother Myrna Erho, a lifelong karaoke singer, said she couldn’t be more proud of her granddaughter. “Charli-Anne’s living my dream. I always wanted to be a country western singer,” said the granmother. “This could be the big break

Charli-Anne, Michelle Wright and Myrna Erho that she needs.” True to her word, the young Erho did attend the Songs from the Hall concert tour in Kamloops only to have the famous singer pull her onstage to perform a full duet of Nobody’s Girl. “It was pretty awesome,” Erho said of the Kamloops experience, where she gave Wright the only demo song that she has professionally recorded. “She’s got my phone number and my email, so I guess we’ll see what happens. If nothing else, it put a fire under my butt to get more songs together. And, it’s put a permanent smile on my face that’s not going away all year.”

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor If you’re looking for a night out this weekend, you need to look no further than the 20th anniversary dinner put on by the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. A Night in Paris is this year’s theme and according to co-organizers Leigh Pinette and Nicholas Iachetta, the food and prizes promise to be spectacular with an authentic French menu boasting french-style roast beef, Coq au vin (chicken in a red wine sauce), ratatouille, cheeses, breads and appetizers such as escargot. Desserts include French treats such as cream puffs and a chocolate fondue. And of course there will be champagne. “It’s a really good menu” says Iachette, the school principal. “It’s going to be delicious.” And, it’s also for a good cause. All the money raised from the evening will go toward the Sacred Heart Catholic School, for activities for the year for the students such as dog sledding, swimming and skating and also to revamp the school’s library as part of their literacy program. “We’re hoping for a good turn out,” said Iachetta. The evening will also offer a silent and live auction, with luxurious items up for bids such as his and hers diamond rings valued at more than $1,500 each, a fisherman’s

Living strong on steroids U.S. biker Lance Armstrong has been striped of his sponsors, his reputation and his seven wins in the Tour de France this week. For years Armstrong fought allegations of doping, only to have that allegation catch up with him from officials from his own country. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency detailed what it called

“overwhelming” evidence of Armstrong’s involvement as a professional cyclist in “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program.” He lost millions in sponsors and stepped down from his role as chairman of Livestrong, a charity he founded after successfully fighting cancer. In a speech yesterday, as

some of his supporters wept, Armstrong said he’s been better, but he’s been worse too. There has been no apology offered for cheating, and no apology given for letting down his fans. Armstrong needs to practice what he preaches and live strong, by living honestly and with some integrity.

No substitutes for memories made I was pretty impressed to learn that there are nearly a dozen Williams Lake minor hockey players competing in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League this season. Darcy Flaherty, Matt McMath, Kurtis Bond, Kaleb Boyle, Kaleb Carpenter, Chad Wilde, Drew Wilde, and Greg Nichols are among the lakecity boys playing for their respective clubs in the league. The KIJHL is one of the largest Junior B leagues in Canada with 20 teams scattered throughout the Kootenays and Okanagan. Prior to doing my research on the league, I always just assumed Junior B hockey was simply a spot for players not good enough to make WHL or Junior A teams, to continue to play hockey. The KIJHL has been used as a launching pad for some elite NHL level players including Shea Weber and Cody Fransen of the Nashville Predators, Chuck Kobasew of the Calgary Flames and Barrett Jackman of the St. Louis Blues. Often a lower level

can be the greatest thing for a player as they receive more ice-time, become accustomed to seeing themselves playing in pressure situations and seeing the puck go in the net. I’m sure the league has its fair share of players that will score in bunches and move up to Junior A the following year. However, I’m sure for every stud in the league there are probably a half-dozen players that know this will be the furthest the sport takes them but will look back on these days as the most fun they will ever have in their entire lives. I was never a hockey player, but having played five years of university soccer I can draw some parallels. Being a billeted hockey player is probably a lot like being a broke student, having to scrounge for every last bit to afford a decent meal or a night out with some adult beverages with the boys. There are countless young men throughout the country who put in a solid four years or the maximum five years in hockey leagues like the

KIJHL who likely look back with some sense of mixed emotions when their junior hockey career comes to a close. Those years could have been spent saving money, working or pursuing an education in university and they will be starting behind the eight-ball in some aspects of life. They will have the odd high school friends well on their way to becoming doctors and lawyers, and a few in the process of buying homes and maybe even starting families. However, I guarantee the majority will tell you those memories of being part of a team were well worth it and have little or no regrets. When I check out my facebook and see photos of former university soccer teammates on road trips I become more jealous than when I see friends on vacation in Mexico. I had my five years of fun and secretly wish there was a 15-year eligibility allowance. I wish all these young men the best of luck with their hockey endeavors, and yes I am very jealous of all of them.

Beyond the Beetle: An action plan for healthy forests Steve Thomson Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations With the release of 'Beyond the Beetle: A Mid-Term Timber Supply Action Plan', we have outlined a clear strategy to help our forests recover from the damage done by the mountain pine beetle infestation. Unfortunately the release of the action plan has led to the spread of misinformation and it's important for your readers to know the facts. Government is not advocating logging in reserves. Reserves have been set up to manage

crucial wildlife habitat, biodiversity, viewscapes and old growth forests. Those reserves are important and need to be kept. If a community believes the reserves no longer serve these purposes, they can initiate a discussion with government. Only then would government consider altering any of those designations. Along with having community support, any proposed changes must be ecologically sound and supported by science. Any such proposals will be considered on a caseby-case basis. Managing our forests is a complex issue, but the outcome we

all want is simple: an industry that continues to support workers and communities. In coming up with this plan, we're building on the $884 million we have spent since 2001 fighting the infestation and its environmental and economic impacts. We're advocating for better use of the wood in beetle-affected areas, as opposed to increasing the number of trees cut. Not all beetledamaged timber will supply sawmills, but it will supply the growing wood bioeconomy sector. Any areas harvested will be reforested with improved seed and start to contribute ecological

values sooner than they might otherwise. The action plan includes a 10-year forest inventory plan, with the first five years focused on re-inventorying the hardest-hit mountain pine beetle areas - work which is already well underway. Critics say this work should have started sooner, but while the pine beetle epidemic was at its peak, the everchanging landscape of the beetle's destruction made it difficult to carry out a comprehensive inventory. We are investing in innovative silviculture practices to grow more trees and grow them faster, and are work-

ing with licensees on comprehensive plans that cover the entire timber supply areas. These plans contribute to growing fibre but they are equally about growing healthy forests to preserve water, wildlife, visuals and other values. These five-year plans include our latest knowledge about the effects of climate change and fire management planning. The action plan also proposes legislation to convert volume-based forest licences to areabased forest licences - but these conversions would only occur through local conversations and after consultation. We will also cre-

ate a new supplemental forest licence to increase bioeconomy opportunities. In 2001, our government inherited a forest industry that demanded reform - mired in out-dated and inefficient policies that were oblivious to a global marketplace. Despite unprecedented challenges, including the crash of the U.S. housing market along with the pine beetle infestation, we've implemented innovative and progressive measures to reclaim a position as a global leader in sustainable forestry. Working together with communities, First Nations and industry,

our accomplishments are many and varied, including new markets in Asia, a burgeoning bioeconomy sector, increased local participation in forestry through community forests and First Nation tenures, and new valueadded wood building products like cross-laminated timber. Based on the unanimous recommendations of an all-party legislative committee, 'Beyond the Beetle: A Mid-Term Timber Supply Action Plan' will position communities, First Nations and workers so they can prosper from a postbeetle forest industry in B.C.'s Interior.

Simpson: Stumbling blindly into the future Bob Simpson, MLA The BC Liberal government has released its response to this summer’s Special Committee on Timber Supply’s report and recommendations. The Special Committee consisted of both Liberal and NDP MLAs, and its final report represented the unanimous agreement between the two political parties. In essence, the government has accepted the Committee’s recommendations and has “committed� to taking steps to act on them. The overall intent of the government’s socalled 10 year action plan, dubbed “Beyond the Beetle,� is to keep harvest levels as high as possible for as long as possible in order to minimize any mill closures and job losses in the near to midterm and to enable the

rebuilding of the mill that burned down in Burns Lake earlier this year. To accomplish this feat the government will allow logging in areas currently set aside for other values (including old growth management zones), they will include “marginally economic stands� into their annual allowable cut calculations so they can keep mid-term harvest levels high, and they will pass legislation this spring to convert volume based licenses to area-based tenures that can be directly awarded to private companies by Cabinet. These fundamental and radical changes to BC’s forest management and forest tenure regimes will be done without an updated inventory or any additional funding for forest health and silvicul-

ture activities. Facing budget cuts in each of the next two years, the Minister of Forests can only promise that BC’s forest inventory will be updated over the next ten years. We need to have the courage to face real-

ity: the traditional forest sector is going to downsize, there will be mill closures and there will be job losses. In order to address the question of how soon this will occur and for how long, we must undertake an imme-

diate re-inventory of our public forests that takes into account the implications of climate change and analyzes the potential to take advantage of economic opportunities outside of our traditional timber markets.

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor More local children will be able to play sports this year thanks to some extra support from the provincial government. Williams Lake and District KidSport Chapter representatives received a cheque for $4,000 from MLA Donna Barnett Thursday which will help pay registration fees for children whose families are challenged by the cost of putting their children in organized sports. “There are a lot of parents and even grandparents raising grandchildren, who are on a fixed income and they need help,” said Barnett, who believes sports brings communities together. “It’s great to see there is an avenue for these children to play sports. To me this is just wonderful.” Denise Skara of KidSport said in our area the chapter probably helps with hockey registration the most, but also supports children who want to play soccer, swimming, gymnastics, wrestling, lacrosse, softball, figure skating, karate and swim lessons up to $200 per child per year. “We’ve had a lot of requests for hockey this year,” Skara said, adding the local KidSport has supported 124 children so far this year and issued $19,000.

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Williams Lake has been selected as one of just nine new DriveABLE assessment regional locations -- a much-needed rural service addition that will allow local drivers who need assessments (many of those seniors) to stay home for testing. Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan, and Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett made the good-news announcement in front of a library room packed with members meeting for the Williams Lake Senior’s Advisory Committee last Wednesday. “This is a huge issue for me - the acceptability has to be there,” Barnett said after the meeting. “I’m a senior too, so I get it.” Barnett’s office had

been fielding many complaints in previous months from constituents who were referred to take the functional cognitive assessment in order to ensure driver safety. Issues were raised however when many local seniors were forced to drive to places like Prince George or Kamloops for assessments only to have their driver’s license taken after the assessment and were left stranded with their vehicles out-oftown. “I worked my butt off for this,” said Barnett, who has been fighting for the new service. “Now nobody will have to leave. They can just make an appointment and get tested right here.” In Williams Lake, DriveABLE assessments will be based out of the local Service BC office and will take appoint-

ments from residents throughout the region. “I’m really proud that the minister listened to us and she responded quickly and efficiently,” Barnett said of Shirley Bond, adding that she will ensure the new local service is accessible and working as it should. “If anybody has a problem, they can just call our office and we’ll fix it.” The requirements to undertake a DriveABLE assessment is not related to a person’s age, but rather concerns raised regarding a person’s cognitive functioning and ability to continue to drive safely. Of the 140,000 driver medical fitness assessments reviewed in 2011, only about 2,700 drivers - fewer than two per cent - were referred for a DriveABLE cognitive assessment.

Attempted vehicle thefts On Oct. 19 at 7:41 p.m., police responded to the attempted theft of vehicle on Pigeon Ave. The perpetrator(s) broke out back window and damaged the transmission. No suspects have been identified. On October 20, 2012 at 7:37 a.m. police were called police to report a break and enter into the Cariboo GM dealership at 370 Mackenzie Ave S. Upon arrival, police observed that the showroom door window to the building was broken

and a set of tires may have been stolen. No suspects have been identified and the matter is still under investigation. On Oct. 20 at 9:40 a.m., police responded to the theft of a 1998 General Motors gray pick-up truck stolen from a residence on 12th Avenue North. Police observed glass on the driveway that was likely the result of a broken passenger side rear window of the extended cab. The owners of the vehicle heard a diesel

truck start up at approximately 4:15 hrs and go down to 11th Avenue, and then head North on Highway 97. No suspects have been identified at this time and the theft is still under investigation. On Oct. 20 at 11 a.m. police received a report that a 1999 Dodge Durango had been broken into and the owner's car charger stolen. There were no suspects or witnesses to the event and no suspects were identified.

With every change of season comes the change in our wardrobe. Most of us ladies look forward to what's new and what's hot in the world of fashion and design. Unfortunately many of us don't get the opportunity to venture off to Paris or New York to catch a viewing of the latest runway designs, colours and fabrics so we than must rely on our local merchants to select and purchase the hottest looks of the season. Not all designs will appeal to everyone so most buyers will purchase many different selections which will appeal to a larger number of people. As a woman, we need to know our body type in order to find what shape, colour and design will look best on each of us. Skin tone and hair colour also have an influence on what looks best on us. Here is a selection of comfy fall casuals that can be easily mixed and matched and that can be worn often throughout the fall/ winter season.

Comfy Cardigans to look slimmer Slenderize your appearance with fine-textured knits that slim trouble spots but still show your shape. Highlight the thinnest part of your torso which is right below your bust with a single strategically placed button. Choose a V-neck with body-conscious ribbing where you want attention and a generous hemline where you don't. Select a cardigan that is part shawl, part sweater and artfully drapes around a problematic midsection.

7 Tips for eating to look younger Looking younger comes from the inside and as you already know it's loads of fruits and vegetable as well as other whole foods that end up doing the trick. If you are concerned with aging gracefully, start where it matters, your diet! 1. Avocado and Other Good Fats Avocado has a lot of things going for it not the least of which is it's fat content. You will notice that as you age those with little flesh on the body, especially in the face, begin to age faster. Flesh keeps us looking younger. Eat lots of good fats like olive oil and avocado.

4. Oysters Depending on type and variety, oysters provide as much as 182 mg of zinc per 100g serving, according to healthalicious. Zinc serves to repair damage done to skin cells so if you have sun damages skin than Zinc can help.

7. Omega fatty Acids Oil Essential fatty acids are known to be responsible for healthy cell membranes. Omega 3 is made up of three acids. These acids which can be found in hemp seeds, flax seeds and chia seeds. DHA and EPA are found in algae, spirulina, blue-green algae, and chlorella. Omega 6's are found in many vegetarian foods including olive oil, whole grains, and avocados.

2. Water-Based Fruits and Vegetables Hydration is a big part of looking young because it helps the skin keep moisture. When the skin is dehydrated it lays flatter on the body and wrinkles begin to show. To help prevent this from happening you must drink lots of water and loading up on water heavy fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, cucumber, and citrus fruits.

5. Sweet Potatoes For smoother looking skin eat your sweet potatoes! Sweet potatoes have beta-carotene, which is known to balance your skin's pH. Beta-carotene helps combat dryness and promotes cell turnover.

3. Guava Guava is great for your skin because it's loaded with vitamin C. According to the DR. Oz show, it has four times as much as citrus fruits. Our body's natural Botox is Vitamin C which will help keep your skin cells full and wrinkle-free.

6. Seasonal Berries Fresh berries such as blueberries, blackberries and strawberries have some of the highest antioxidant capacity. During the harvesting season gather up as many berries as you can eat and your skin will rejoice!

Police respond to acts of violence in lakecity On Oct. 20 at 2:49 a.m. police were called to a residence on 6th Ave South where a male was reported to be trying to get into a house. The female complainant said the male was first trying the door handle and

was yelling another person's name. The female resident initially thought the male was intoxicated and confused. The female home owner tried to scare the perpetrator off by activating the panic alarm on her car. The

resident called a friend who in turn contacted the police to attend. Meanwhile the perpetrator was seen by the resident looking through the window at her. The perpetrator then ran off down the back alley. The resident could

only describe the individual as a First Nations male, 6'0", lanky wearing all black. Patrols for the male by police were unsuccessful in locating the perpetrator. On Oct. 20 at 6:30 a.m. police responded to a fight

between two men at a residence on Proctor Street. One of the men was still upset with the other as a result of a previous assault, consequently while they were drinking at the residence on Proctor Street he tried to hit

him with a bat. The victim of the assault sustained minor injuries and possibly a broken nose. Neither of the two men wished police to take any action and the injured individual refused medical attention.

Health critic identifies issues NDP Health Critic Mike Farnworth made a visit to the lakecity this week to learn more about the issues facing rural centres like Williams Lake. “Clearly rural BC has some important issues that must be addressed,” Farnworth said during an interview at the Friendship Centre Monday, following a day of tours through the hospital, Cariboo Lodge and Deni House. Farnworth identified the lack of a drug and alcohol treatment centre, a shortage of services for mental health and a master plan for the hospital as the top three issues he heard while in town. Farnworth said on the positive side, one bit of good news is the reopening of Deni House. “We have a good health care system. It’s there when we need it,” Farnworth said. “But the health ministry is changing and we have to be on top of the challenges.” Those challenges include lack of skilled workers, ability to attract and retain doctors in rural areas, a need to increase technology, as well as health

Ray Farris, Vice President of Wood Products, said West Fraser is a Cariboo success story. “It’s really grown out of the heart of the Cariboo,” said Farris. “West Fraser’s roots are in Quesnel and Williams Lake.” MLA Donna Barnett said West Fraser’s announcement is very positive news for the area. “It proves that the forest industry is alive and well in British Columbia and in particular, pine beetle country, where we hear so much negative about the future,” said Barnett. “This gives stability and certainty to the workers and the communities.” Forests, Land and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson echoed Barnett sentiments, adding that “very clearly West Fraser is a great company and a strategic investor.” “It is an example of how industry investments in technology can sustain high-quality jobs in B.C.’s forestry sector,” Thompson said.

The new planer will be built around the existing one, allowing operations to continue during the construction phase. Ketcham said the old planer building will be used to expand lunch rooms as well as offer more shops and storage space. The last investment made at the mill

Tyrel Lucas buzzes around the goal looking for the loose puck. Lucas had two goals and a helper in Saturday's 8-5 victory over Quesnel at the Cariboo Memorial Complex. Lucas has nine points in his last two games.

Stamps currently tops in CIHL East Division Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor The Williams Lake Stampeders exploded for six second period goals to help pace them to an 8-5 victory over rivals the Quesnel Kangaroos in Central Interior Hockey League action Saturday night at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Quesnel led 2-1 after one period of play. Tyrel Lucas continued his hot streak tallying the Stamps first goal after a six-point performance from his last outing versus Prince Rupert. John Woodyard and Tyler Fuller picked up the assists. The Stamps busted things open in

the middle frame outscoring the ‘Roos 6-0. Matt Lees tied the game up at 1:49 of the second period from Dino Lecomte. Nathan Zurak put the Stamps ahead at 4:13 from Lees and Dan Cook. Lucas added his second of the game assisted by Woodyard and Francis Johnson just 32 seconds later at 4:45 to make it 4-2. The Woodyard, Lucas, Johnson line was at it again as they combined with Woodyard applying the finish to make it 5-2 Stamps at the 12:27 mark. Fuller scored the Stamps sixth goal with helpers from Riley Siebert and Stu

Sasges. Aaron Zurak rounded out the scoring for Williams Lake also from Siebert as home side took a commanding 7-2 lead into the dressing room for the second intermission. In the third period Quesnel scored a shorthanded goal at the 1:56 mark to make it 7-3. Any chance of a comeback was nixed when Nathan Zurak added his second at the 4:53 mark from Fuller and Cook to push the lead to 8-3. Quesnel would tally two goals late in third to make the final score 8-5. Lucas led the offence with two goals

and an assist to give him nine points in the last two games. Fuller and Woodyard also had three points each as both picked up a goal and two assists. Other Stamps with multipoint games included Nathan Zurak, Johnson, Siebert, Cook and Lees. Lucas, Lees, and Zurak sat in third, fifth and 13th respectively in CIHL scoring with seven, six, and four points heading into Saturday’s game. Williams Lake outshot Quesnel 43-26 with Justin Foote picking up the victory in goal for the Stamps. There was no shortage of bad blood between

the two sides as both the Kangaroos and Stampeders at four game misconducts apiece with the lakecity side picking up 73 minutes in penalties and Quesnel spending 64 minutes in the box. Brent Macisaac, Dylan Richardson, Dave Debeers, and Lees were all forced to hit the showers early for the Stamps. The victory boosts the Stamps record to three wins and one loss after four games. They sit in first place in the CIHL East Division with six points. The Lac La Hache Tomahawks were in action this weekend hitting the

road for a pair of games. The Tomahawks dropped a 5-2 decision to the Houston Luckies Saturday night but picked up a huge 5-4 shootout victory over the Omineca Ice in Vanderhoof Sunday afternoon. The Tomahawks sit in second place in the division with five points sporting a 2-1-1 win-lossovertime loss records after three games. Quesnel sit third in the division on three points with a 1-1-1 record. Grant Johnson and Donovan Nicholas have been on fire for the Tomahawks as they sit first and third in CIHL scoring entering

the weekend with nine and eight points respectively from their opening two games. Next weekend all three Cariboo sides have two game home-stands Saturday and Sunday. The Stampeders host the Omenica Ice (Vanderhoof ) Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and defending Coy Cup champions Smithers Steelheads Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Lac La Hache has a re-match with Houston Saturday night followed by a date with Omenica Ice Sunday afternoon in the South Cariboo. Quesnel will battle Smithers Saturday and Houston Sunday.

Plan now for safe winter driving

Thanks to global climate change, many of the weather patterns we've grown accustomed to in the past are no longer the norm today. It seems much of the country experiences shorter than normal days of moderate spring and fall weather, with seasons simply switch-

ing from scorching sun one moment to chilly temperatures and snow the next. That means it's never too early to take a refresher course in preparing for safe winter driving. Winter weather takes all of the usual road hazards and steps them up a notch. Slippery

roadways, congestion, road rage, pedestrian traffic -- all of these situations seem magnified when the weather is poor and daylight is waning. Although winter driving may be frustrating, there are ways to prepare for the season and prevent accidents and injuries. Prepare It's important to check that a vehicle is in top shape before the cold weather sets in. Pay special attention to the tires. If tires are bald or their wear is signficant, that could prove hazardous on weatherslicked roads. Have tires replaced before the first snowfall. The same can be said when switching from regular performance tires to allweather or snow tires. Be sure to change all of the tires on the car, even if it is just a frontwheel drive vehicle. Now is the time to also get a tune-up on the vehicle. Cold weather can make it hard for a car to perform at its best, and

any problems should be eliminated before they spiral out of control. Be sure to top off any fluids in the car, especially windshield washer fluid you might need to improve visibility during a storm. Check the function of wiper blades and change them if they aren't up to snuff. Consult with a mechanic to find out if it is adviseable to switch motor oil viscosity during the winter to improve flow through the engine and help with cold start turnover. It also helps to stock up on supplies should you get stranded or stuck: - snow shovel - scraper/brush - tire chains - flashlight (with extra batteries) - abrasive material, like cat litter, sand, or salt - jumper cables - flares or reflective triangles - brightly colored cloth to signal for help - empty water-tight

container with candles, matches or lighter, bottled water, and a snack - sleeping bags or blankets, ski caps, and mittens - first-aid supplies Skidding How best to maneuver a car when it starts to skid depends on how the vehicle handles. If the rear wheels skid, turn the steering wheel, and subsequently the front wheels, in the same direction of the skid. If the front wheels skid, take your foot off the gas and shift to neutral. Don't try to steer immediately; the skid may slow, and traction could return. Then you can steer in the direction you want to go and put the car back into drive. Keep in mind that even with expert maneuvering it can be tricky to recover from a skid on ice. Snow tires are not infallible and may be ineffective on icy roadways.

ting it in drive and hitting the gas, then in reverse and pressing on the accelerator to create a valley in the snow that might free the car. Use your abrasive material to provide traction. You can also attempt to shovel out the tires. If the car is inoperable, stay in the vehicle out of harm's way and call for help on a mobile phone. Leave a window cracked open if you will be running the engine for periodic heat. The National Safety Council says that you can run the engine for heat about once every hour, or every half hour in severe cold. Be sure to clean snow from around the end of the tail pipe to prevent carbon monoxide buildup. For extra heat, don blankets or a sleeping bag to prevent hypothermia.

when driving in winter weather is to slow down and add much more room for reacting to roadway conditions. Driving slowly and braking slowly may help to prevent skids. Also, should a skid occur, having more room between you and another vehicle helps you to maneuver elsewhere or come to a stop without causing an accident. When visibility is poor, leaving extra room means you can react if something suddenly veers into the path of the car or you missed seeing it through the snow and sleet. Stranded or Stuck Should the car break down or it becomes stuck in the snow, there are some things you can do. Be sure to steer or push the car to a safe location, if possible.

Learn the proper way to rotate tires Rotating tires is something that many people do religiously while others put off the task until they notice a problem with the car's performance. An important component of vehicle upkeep, rotating tires not only extends the life of the tires, but it also helps ensure safer driving. There are some who are unfamiliar about how and when to rotate the tires and the benefits this routine maintenance can provide. This also could be a factor in why people procrastinate on tire rotation. One may not realize that the front tires often bear the brunt of the work in vehicle operation. Making turns or parallel parking requires the force of the front tires. Vehicles that are front-wheeldrive have front tires that supply the main motive power for the vehicle, according to Edmunds.com. The frequent use and requirements of the tires produces friction on the road, and eventually heat. The front tires wear more quickly than the rear tires. In order to extend the life of the tires, drivers must periodically rotate them. Tire rotation essentially means moving the front tires to the rear and vice-versa. This means the front passenger side tire will be moved to the back passenger side position. The same thing will occur on the driver's side. There's a reason for this. Tires have unique wear patterns that are related to the suspension and the alignment. Should you switch the tires in a criss-cross pattern, it could affect the alignment and lead to a bumpy ride. These scenarios can depend on the vehicle and the tire, however. Certain vehicles have tires of different sizes in the rear and front, which prevents front-to-back rotation. There are also cars that have tires that are unidirectional, where they are specific to one side of the car and asymmetrical,

changeover special

with a tread pattern that changes from the inside of the tire to the outside. Though these tires are rare, you can't rotate them at all. Tire rotation is adviseable to preserve balanced handling, traction and even outer tire wear. But how often should it be done? Many tires should be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, even if they don't show signs of wear. Some service stations will do tire rotation at the same time that oil changes are done because the car is already on a lift. Don't expect tire rotation to correct wear problems due to worn mechanical parts or as the result of improper inflation pressure. Rotation is not the only tire maintenance task to do to ensure safe tires. Consult with a service station to determine the best pattern for rotating your tires and the ideal time interval between rotations.

Around 3 million pickup trucks are purchased and used for various reasons across the country each year. With so many light trucks on the road, the wise driver can take heed of safety precautions when driving this type of vehicle. Pickup trucks tend to be the safer of the two vehicles in a collision with another car. This is called "passive safety." The larger size and the higher stance means the vehicle will probably suffer less damage than the smaller car. Its height also puts it on par with the bumpers of other trucks and SUVs. However, pickups do have some disadvantages that will need to be taken into consideration in order to drive safely. Pickups have a higher rollover potential than passenger cars. Therefore, turning should be done slowly and corners shouldn't be taken like one is driving on a racetrack. According to the Department of Transportation's Fatality Analysis Reporting System, in 2007, the most recent year from which statistics are available, rollovers accounted for 59 percent of SUV fatalities, 46 percent of pickup truck deaths and 25 percent of car fatalities.

Although pickups have a lower center of gravity than SUVs, they can still rollover if driven aggressively. Another thing to consider is the heavier weight of a pickup, which causes the pickup to have a longer stopping distance. This means pickup drivers will need to add an even greater space cushion between the pickup and other vehicles on the road to be able to avoid road hazards. Something else to consider is that pickups are not designed to be nimble, overly responsive vehicles. They are primarily designed for hauling. That means swerving around obstacles isn't achieved as easily as it may be in a passenger car. Again, this drives home the point of leaving more space to react to the road. Pickup drivers should also note that many pickups, with the exception of a few, are rear-wheel drive vehicles. This means that the back wheels power the forward movement of the truck. When the cargo bed is full, this can work out fine. However, when the cargo bed is empty, the front half of the truck tends to be the heavier part of the vehicle, and

essentially the lighter half of the truck -- the empty back -is pushing the truck along. On slick roadways this can cause fishtailing or poor breaking. An easy fix is to keep some sort of cargo in the bed to weigh down the rear of the vehicle, but this isn't something all drivers remember. The height of pickup trucks (and SUVs for that matter) create blind zones in the back of the vehicle and below the front grill. The organization Kids and Cars, which works to improve child safety, says that roughly 90 children die each year when drivers back over them while they are in blind zones. Items lying in the driveway, such as bicycles and toys, may also be the victims of blind zones. Pickup drivers should be aware of blind zones and make efforts to check these areas before backing up or pulling out. Backup cameras can also provide assistance. Pickup trucks are largely used for transporting personal belongings or for commercial purposes. They are much safer to drive when pickup owners know the particulars of truck design and maneuverability.

Men’s basketball action is back in the lakecity Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor The Williams Lake Men’s Basketball League had its first official league games Sunday night at Columneetza Secondary after operating on a dropin basis over the past three years. The first game featured the Columneetza Doctors taking on the Waterhouse Warriors. The Warriors went on to a 64-48 victory. Former CCAA national champion with the UNBC Timberwolves, Ken Carnes, led the Warriors in scoring with 15 points. Columneetza big man, Nate Boulding, who recently moved to the lakecity from Fort St. James was a major presence down low picking up a game-high 28 points. The Warriors played the double header and took on the Jorgensen Jumpers in the late game. Former Kwantlen College player Doug Meyers led the offence for Jorgensen’s with a game-high 29 points to help his team to a narrow 64-60 victory. Carnes has 22 points in a losing effort for the Warriors.

Williams Lake well represented in Junior Hockey League Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor Three Williams Lake skaters played a big part of Saturday night’s Kootenay International Junior Hockey League match up between the Princeton Posse and the Golden Rockets. Matt McMath, a rookie defenceman for the Rockets scored his first KIJHL goal and was named second star in a 6-5 Golden victory on home ice. Kurtis Bond and Kaleb Boyle continued their stellar starts to the season for Princeton. Bond picked up a goal for the Posse in the loss. The pair of lakecity born forwards are lighting the lamp on a consistent basis for the Princeton, the former Williams Lake TimberWolves Junior B affiliate club. Boyle and Bond are both among the league leaders in scoring as Boyle has 15 points and Bond 12 points after just 11 games. Bond, a 6'3" forward, now in his fourth

year of Junior B, had a breakout campaign last year after seeing limited time in first two seasons with the Grand Forks Border Bruins and Kamloops Storm. In 2011-2012, his first full season with Princeton, he averaged more than a point per game. Bond scored 21 goals and added 34 assists for 55 points in 51 games. He has continued his torrid scoring pace this season with five goals and seven assists in 12 games. Left-winger Kaleb Boyle, 18, is second for the Posse in scoring with 15 points in 13 games. Boyle has eight goals and seven assists after playing just three games with the Posse last season. The Wiliams Lake duo are a major reason the Posse currently sit in second in the Okanagan division with a 7-6-0-0 win-loss-tie-overtime loss record for 14 points. McMath has seen action in all 12 of his

team’s games so far this year. The Rockets sit third in the Kootenay Conference’s Eddie Mountain division on 13 points with a 6-50-1 record. The KIJHL is being very well represented by a number of Williams Lake minor hockey products with double-digits in players competing in the 20-team Junior B league. The Cariboo Advisor will be doing monthly wrap-ups on how each lakecity player is doing with their respective teams. There are three Williams Lake rookie forwards lacing up the skates for the Chase Heat. Kaleb Carpenter has been in the line-up all 14 games registering two points with a goal and assist. Chad Wilde has played seven games adding two assists and Drew Wilde has picked up one assist in seven games. The Heat sit in last place in the five team Okangan/ Shuswap Doug Birks division on nine points

with a 4-9-0-1 record. Tye Moses is playing in his third year in the KIJHL with the Columbia Valley Rockies of Invermere. The forward has picked up a goal and an assist through six games this season. Greg Nickel in his rookie season with the Nelson Leafs has picked up a goal and two assists for three points through 12 games this season. The 17-yearold forward has also racked up 34 penalty minutes. The Leafs currently sit third in the Kootenay Conference’s Neil Murdoch division with 15 points and a 7-5-1-0 record. Darcy Flaherty has five goals and two assists for seven points in 12 games with the Creston Valley Thunder Cats. The second year forward sits third in team scoring. He picked up 17 points in 43 games with Creston last season. The Thunder Cats sit last in the Eddie Mountain division with a 4-6-0-2 record.

Taurus, reflect on special times in your life because they can bring happiness. Whenever you feel a tad stressed this week, think positively and know that this, too, shall pass. Gemini, you may be a party animal this week if the social opportunities arise. Just keep your head at all times and remember to celebrate in a responsible way.

Gold Medal Roasted Red Pepper Soup Last week, I was asking you for some of your favorite recipes that you have picked from previous Ken’s Country Kitchen columns in the Advisor Newspaper or the Tribune. We were going to use some examples in The Advisor and Ken`s Country Kitchen Cookbook and were soliciting your input. I have reviewed hundreds of my columns over the years and in all, I thought about two of the recipes that I cooked and enjoyed as much as any single dish items. One dish was Roasted Red Pepper soup with Jalapeno drizzle on top and the other was Rosalie`s grouse. I have

FAMOUS BIRTHDAYS

some time ago, but it is sooo gooood it is worth repeating… this soup rates top spot on any culinary podium. Gold Medal Roasted Red Pepper Soup Here is the recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Jalapeño Cream that I served last Saturday night. I also made this dish for an Elysia Resort cook-off and it was Number #1 in the taste buds of those in attendance. 3 tbsp green onions One-half tsp dried thyme Two tbsp butter Eight red bell pepper, roasted and chopped Three cups of chicken broth

One-half cup whipping cream Salt & pepper to taste Cream 2 fresh Jalapeño peppers seeded and chopped Two large garlic cloves minced One-half tsp salt One-quarter cup sour cream One-quarter cup whipped cream Place red bell peppers on High heat on barbecue and char on all sides. Remove and let cool enough to handle then peel off the black skin and chop the flesh of the pepper. Melt butter in a large stock pot and add the onions along with thyme. Cook until

onion is soft then add bell peppers, chicken stock and simmer the mixture until peppers are very soft. This takes about fifteen minutes. In a blender puree the mixture until it is very smooth then return the mixture to a clean pot and whisk in the cream. Season with salt and pepper and lemon juice to taste. For the Jalapeño cream, blend the peppers, salt, garlic, sour cream and whipping cream in a food processor. To serve, put the soup in bowls and drizzle the cream over the soup in a decorative manner. Bye for now and Goood Cooking

Leo, when you have doubts about making purchases or splurging financially, trust your gut instinct and you will be alright. You will have a good meeting on Tuesday. Virgo, it can be hard to concentrate when you are being pulled in so many directions. You need to designate special times to handle all tasks so you can stay organized. Sometimes taking a risk is necessary to get ahead, Libra. Now is not the time to take risks, however, Play it very conservatively for the next few weeks and then rethink your options. Just when you seem to be coasting along successfully, a few minor bumps may spring up, Scorpio. They won’t be enough to derail your plans, however.

Sagittarius, there will be plenty of times for laughter this week, as you seem to cause giggles everywhere you go. It feels good to boost people’s spirits.

Capricorn, a large purchase has been on your mind, but until now you may not have been able to do anything about it. Put out feelers and test the water in the next few days. Plenty of opportunities for social gatherings arise now that you have made a few new friends, Aquarius. Show them you’re always willing to have a good time. You don’t have to share every detail to be an honest person, Pisces. It is sometimes advantageous to keep some things personal.

IN THEATRES FUN SIZE Wren (Victoria Justice), a high school senior, gets invited to a Halloween party thrown by the hottest guy in school (Thomas McDonell). On the night of the party, her mother tells her she has to babysit her weird little brother and take him out trick-or-treating, because she’s going to a party with her much younger boyfriend. When Wren loses him, she and her best friend April (Jane Levy) enlist Roosevelt (Thomas Mann), who has a crush on Wren, and his equally nerdy friend Peng (Osric Chauto) to help them on a frantic search to find Albert before her mother gets home. PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER Fifteen-year-old loner Charlie (Logan Lerman), still coping with his best friend’s suicide, is setting off on his first day of high school. Realizing his potential, Charlie’s new English teacher (Paul Rudd) introduces him to literature greats like Salinger and Kerouac, inspiring Charlie to embark on some adventures of his own. He winds up befriending two seniors, the quirky Sam (Emma Watson) and her flamboyant stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller). The siblings help Charlie embrace his teenage spirit, complete with sex, pot and lo-fi rock. Although Charlie basks in his newfound happiness, it isn’t long before he realizes it won’t last forever, with Sam and Patrick’s graduation quickly approaching at the end of the year. Burdened with the heartbreak of losing his friends, not to mention his new love, and a repressed family secret waiting to be exposed, Charlie fights to keep afloat and escape the depression that’s threatening to pull him back in. Based on the 1999 novel of the same name written by director Stephen Chbosky.
