Crime wave

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A wave of crime involving machetes and bear spray has Insp. Warren Brown of the Williams Lake RCMP calling for back up. “I need more officers,” Brown said outside the detachment yesterday. Last week the RCMP reported two attacks in the lakecity where the suspects employed the use of the unrestricted weapons of choice, including an “extremely violent” home invasion Halloween night. See Page 3, “Four arrested in home invasion.” The evening before that, a man was attacked outside the O.V. Beer and Wine store for his case of beer. Suspects in that incident punched and kicked the victim before spraying him in the face with bear spray. In Williams Lake Provincial Court yesterday, former Mayor Scott Nelson was testifying as a witness himself in a trial involving a machetes. Nelson said the story dates back to a Sunday afternoon last June where he witnessed two groups of people coming together for an obvious fight on the grounds of Williams Lake Senior Secondary as he jogged on the track. Nelson said a family was playing soccer with their young children at the time and Nelson called police, who arrived immediately and confiscated several machetes. “I think the community is very concerned and very scared,” said Nelson during an interview at the courthouse yesterday. “(These occurrences are) starting to involve innocent people.” Earlier this week the City issued its third quarter crime update, which shows that despite the recent increase, crime stats show a reduction since 2008. In the news release Brown states the recent spike has coincided with a number of prolific offenders being released from jail, and that a few individuals are likely responsible for the majority of the increase. Mayor Kerry Cook stated the increases strengthens her resolve to reduce crime even further.

Four charged in home invasion

Angie Mindus photo

Boarded up windows and smashed glass remain visible at a duplex on Barnard Street Tuesday, which was the site of a violent home invasion Halloween night. Four adults remain in custody in connection with the incident, but are scheduled for a bail hearing in provincial court today.

invasion Halloween night. According to Williams Lake Provincial Court Lists, Catlin Billy, Kyle Plummer, Mitchell

Dogs on the loose force police to kill deer

A deer had to be destroyed Sunday morning in the Lynes Creek Road area after it was attacked by dogs. Williams Lake RCMP responded to the call for help from a resident in the area who reported that the deer needed to be dispatched because it had been chased by two dogs and was injured and lying suffering in a private yard. Williams Lake RCMP said the complainant stated that the two dogs that chased the

deer into her yard were the same dogs who have been a problem in the past chasing livestock. Police said the complainant did not know who the owner of the dogs was but believed that they lived at a residence up Lynes Creek Road. The deer was dispatched by police however before police could get close enough to shoot the dogs, they fled. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP.

Long boarders allege hit and run Police responded to a report of a hit and run involving long boarders and a vehicle on South Lakeside Drive on the weekend. According to the RCMP, the call came in at 8:49 p.m. Saturday night that two males were long boarding down South Lakeside Drive when a vehicle came down the road and clipped the arm of one of the boarders as it passed. Police report that the boarder struck claimed his arm was hit but he was fine and did not require medical

attention. “Both boarders were wearing dark clothing with no reflective markings of any kind,” stated police. Police said the vehicle was later located and the driver spoken to. When police spoke to the driver, he admitted to driving by the boarders but stated he did not know he hit anybody and if he had he would have stopped to help. An examination of the vehicle showed no evidence of damage and there was insufficient evidence to consider charges.

Jeff and Blake Johnny are each facing charges of breaking and entering with intent and as well as theft in relation to the incident. All court proceedings have been put over by consent of the accused until today (Wednesday), when it is expected bail hearings will be conducted. The charges stems from Halloween night when, according to the Williams Lake RCMP, police received reports that a group of people burst into a home on Barnard Street armed with machetes, bats, and bear spray. Police reported that once inside the residence, the group attempted to assault the residents who were successful in securing themselves in a locked room. “The assailants then completely ransacked the interior of the residence using extreme

violence,” stated Insp. Warren Brown in a news release. After a foot chase, police managed to corner suspects at a residence on Pinchbeck St. Brown said a hostile and uncooperative group of 12 people believed to be involved were arrested. “Fortunately, the victims did not suffer any injuries however there is extensive damage to the residence on Barnard Street along with the three vehicles parked at the residence, one of which was stolen and recovered during the incident.” Brown said all suspects are well known to the police. Charges against Mikey Elkins and Sandro Toby in relation to this incident were stayed Nov. 2 in Provincial Court.

TRU North Happenings By Jacquie Johnston

If you build it, they will come!

On Friday October 26, 2012 TRU North, the Williams Lake Construction Association and School District 27 hosted an open house for the completion of the Residential Construction Program Project home. This is the 7th home that has been completed since the year 2000, and the first one built in the city centre. Students of the program worked for 7 months to bring the home from foundation to the lockup stage. The program takes students through their first and second year requirements and readily prepares them for the workforce. Ken Poulsen from TRU North and Ian Gordon from the WLCA worked together to guide the project from beginning to end. Ken Poulsen believes that the home is “top quality” and is always pleased with the transformation he sees in his students from start to finish. The proceeds of the home are put back into scholarships for TRU North.

Police responded to approximately 80 calls for service over the weekend, with reports of people intoxicated, domestic violence, mischief and assaults. On Nov. 2 at about 8:43 a.m. Williams Lake RCMP received a complaint of a break and enter to a residence on Moon Avenue. Front door appeared to be forced open, with drawers in two bedrooms rummaged through. Only property stolen was a bottle of Crown Royal. An unsecured Firearm located in the residence was seized. On Nov. 2 RCMP responded to a complaint of a break-in on Eleventh Ave. North. The front door had been broken in. A lamp and some other items were thrown on the floor on the way to the bedroom. In the bedroom the mattress had been shifted and jewelery boxes had been rifled through. Matter is still under investigation. On Nov. 3 at 8:29 a.m. police were called to a residence on Mackenzie Avenue North to report the windows had been smashed out of a Dodge Ram truck parked at that residence. The mischief occurred overnight between 11 p.,. and 7 a.m.. Entry was gained by smashing the middle hatch window on rear of cab as well as the driver's side window. At 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 3, police responded to a residence on Midnight Drive where the driver reported his 1998 Dodge Dakota had been broken into, and the back drivers side window was smashed. Vehicle was alarmed and appears that once the alarm had been set off the vehicle had been left untouched. The attempted theft appears to be connected to a couple of other vehicle breakins reported over the weekend.

BC Jobs Fair attracts potential workers Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A job fair backed by the provincial government took place in the lakecity last week, and showcased the many jobs available in the trade industries as well as in careers such as the RCMP. All told, 21 companies took part in the allday B.C. Jobs Start Here Job Fair held at the TRU gymnasium Friday. “There is lots of good info,” said Carol Johnson, visiting the fair with resume in hand. Johnson said she and several other members of her community of Alkali Lake boarded a bus to check out the fair.

Johnson just finished her Level C First Aid, is finishing Level B and is looking for work. “It’s so nice to meet people personally. This is a (good way) of hitting the pavement.” Seventeen-year-old Suzi Harry, 17, who is currently attending Skyline, said she eventually wants to go into work where building or carpentry is involved and was looking at all the booths. “I wanted to check out the jobs so I have an idea what I want to do when I’m done (school),” said Harry. Welding students such as Riley Gibson, 23, Jason Pokeda, 18

and Mathew Forseille, 25, were confident in their chosen trade, saying they all have jobs waiting for them when they're done school, but the young men still took their time looking at all their options. Organizations participating in the job fair included Ainsworth Engineered Canada, Axis Family Resources Ltd., BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association, BC Corrections - Adult Custody Division, Cariboo Chilcotin Aboriginal Training Employment Centre, Chinook Scaffold Systems, Devon Energy, Gibraltar Mine Ltd., Horton Ventures Inc.,

Industry Training Authority, Investors Group, Maple Leaf Loading Ltd, O'Brien Training/ Taylor Professional Driving, Orica Canada Inc., RCMP- Recruiting, Retirement Concepts, Teck Resources Ltd., Thompson Rivers University North, Tolko Industries Ltd., Valard Construction LP and West Fraser Timber Co.

City under siege by violent offenders There were two very violent crimes committed in our community last week – events we should all be extremely concerned about. On Halloween night, several suspects allegedly forced their way into a home on Barnard Street brandishing machetes, bats and bear spray. The innocent victims in the home surely saved their lives by barricading themselves in a room until help arrived. When members of the Williams Lake RCMP arrived on scene, they chased the group out of the house and down the street where they were able to make some arrests.

The house was left in ruins and the victims terrified. Earlier in the week, a man was jumped and bear sprayed for a case a beer he bought at a local beer and wine store. He fought them off before taking his trip to the hospital. If these two crimes don't sound the alarm bells with officials of this city I don't know what will. This city is under siege by dangerous criminals. Our police need more resources, and our judges need to start reflecting these present dangers in their sentencing. Insp. Warren Brown has been asking for at least a year for some

kind of purchasing ban on bear spray and machetes. Let's start there immediately. And our judges absolutely must start recognizing the imminent dangers our community faces at the hands of these repeat offenders. In Williams Lake, it should be at least double the time for violent offences considering our city's dubious distinction in the provincial crime rankings. Our leaders need to take this seriously. If you don't think it's a real problem, just ask last week's victims, that is if you can find them – they’ve probably left town.

Maybe Williams Lake isn't a hockey town after all?

It was a bit depressing when I saw that the Quesnel Kangaroos had 800 fans attend their Central Interior Hockey League match Saturday night against the Lac La Hache Tomahawks. Kudos to the Gold Pan City for filling their barn for a senior men’s hockey game. It’s a shame the same can’t be said for Williams Lake. All the Stampeders games I’ve attended in town have a small spattering of fans totalling maybe 75. As an athlete, it is so special to play in an environment where there are plenty of fans and lots of enthusiasm and the energy from the building is transferred to the product on the ice. This town has never been a stellar supporter

of junior hockey over the years as we know from the two failed attempts to sustain the TimberWolves Junior A franchise. I’m not sure what can be done to increase the attendance other than further marketing and promotion. It certainly isn’t the quality of the product as both the Stamps and Lac La Hache have had better results than the aforementioned ‘Roos. Maybe decrease ticket prices from $10 to $5 so people don’t think twice about the cost of seeing a game. After all, 300 fans paying $5 brings in more revenue than 100 fans paying $10. Perhaps create some kind of cordoned off section where fans can be a bit rowdy. The Vancouver Whitecaps

MLS soccer team has a group known as the Southsiders who are all stationed behind the net and sing, and chant and razz opposing players the entire game. It makes for a much more exciting environment. Each MLS team has a section of rowdy fans such as the LA Galaxy’s L.A. Riot Squad and Philadelphia Union’s Sons of Ben (Franklin) which really add to the experience. Unlike junior hockey players who have pretty wide-open schedules outside of hockey, it would be tough to get senior men’s hockey players out and about in the community to increase attendance. Most of these guys have fulltime jobs and many are raising young families.

I encourage all lakecity residents to come out and support our two senior men’s hockey teams. It’s a huge commitment these individuals make to represent our community and receive no compensation in return. The least they deserve is to play in front of a decent crowd and feel as though their efforts are being appreciated. When the Stampeders take on Quesnel this Saturday night on home ice, get out in droves and tell all your friends and pack the arena. There will also be a Remembrance Day ceremony planned prior to the game, which is an occasion that should be near and dear to all our hearts.

Aaron Zurak carries the puck up ice during recent CIHL action. Zurak sits second in scoring for the Williams Lake Stampeders. The Stamps host the Quesnel Kangaroos this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.. Get out and support your hometown team!

Letting go of old attachments lets us delight in simple living

My personal coffee cup of the moment is a brown porcelain one with mallards in flight painted on it (known around here as Bob’ duck cup). Carmen came home with it one day from a thrift shop. I am sure the previous owner must be really missing it, or else dead. The duck picture is starting to fade with too many trips through the dishwasher. No matter, it's still my favourite. The other day someone else used it, leaving me with a plain white mug and pretending to sulk. Repressing an urge to go into a severe reprimand or panic, I gracefully shared the ownership (hardly a prize some would say). Mind you if it gets a chip in it there will be hell to pay! Carmen threw out my old tooth brush saying it was completely shot. I had quite an attachment to that little brush and I’ll never get another quite like it as they have gone out of style since the 70’s. So now I have a bright new one that feels like some form of torture

and my gums are complaining. Gone but not forgotten. Also I have a old green pullover, not really a sweater but soft fuzzy thing that I find very comfortable. Carmen hates it and calls it puke green, threatening to burn it on several occasions. Carmen has good taste. I’ve stood my ground. Once in an attempt at showing renunciation (my Yoga period), I gave away a fridge, some Eskimo prints and my grandmother’s cherry wood end table. My wife at the time changed her mind and went running after the person carrying it down the street. She finally relented and let it go. We were moving to a farm and I didn’t think we needed the stuff. Ironically, the farm house burned to the ground and we lost just about everything. Although traumatized, as a family we just picked ourselves up. We lived and lost, but carried on bravely. What other choice? After all, stuff is just stuff. This brings me to an occasion when a

friend named MacDougal phoned me to help him out. His mother had a stroke, was severely disabled and had to be put in a home. He flew in with only three days to deal with her belongings. She lived in an upscale apartment in the city which was filled with collectables from all over the world. First he asked me if I knew of anyone who could use the furniture. I did and to the absolute delight of a financially stressed young couple, they furnished their rental. Next Mac put three large corn flake boxes in the middle of the living room and threw everything else in them, turning the whole lot over to a Catholic aid organization. All that his mother had amassed over her lifetime, possessions she treasured and was comforted by, was gone in three days. But then, are we not possessed by our possessions? I believe we are also attached to thought and emotion, to old mind sets. Ways of thinking and emotional patterning that stick.

I call them PRMs, programmed response mechanisms. I remember after my first wife left me and was living with another man, she wrote me to say that she responded to him in exactly the same manner she did with me and realized that it wasn’t just me all along. That is, her reaction to consternation and conflict was her own doing. I didn’t actually fall off the chair with that revelation. When it comes to things, pure materialistic assumptions of possession and ownership, what does it mean if we lose it all? It means that none of this is worth anything beyond its immediate satisfaction and comfort in knowing we have something of value. But what do we value most? Greed is born from the fear of “not having enough," but in truth, I feel this comes from “not being enough." If we are fulfilled in selfhood, we have no need of anything to prop ourselves up. Instead we take delight in simple living as the person we are, whatever we own or don’t own.

BC Liberals Are “Mystifying� Investors Bob Simpson MLA Cariboo North I was surprised when I saw a Vancouver Sun headline last week proclaiming that BC’s Energy and Mines Minister was “mystified� at the federal government’s rejection of the Petronas deal (the Malaysian government’s attempt to buy a Canadian natural gas company). Minister Coleman claimed the federal government is putting BC’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) plans at risk by chasing away the capital investment the Malaysian government would bring to the table for one of BC’s five proposed LNG plants. I was caught off guard because I’m sure the owners of Pacific Booker Minerals were “mystified� by the BC Liberals’ decision to reject their Morrison Mine project earlier this month, despite BC’s Environmental Assessment Office stating that the project “the proposed projects would not result in any significant adverse

effects with the successful implementation of mitigation measures and conditions.� This decision has sent shivers throughout the mining community; one mining executive informed me that the nonsensical nature of the Morrison decision sends a signal to all junior mining companies to stay away from BC. The rejection of this project reminded me of Environment Minister Terry Lake’s public statements about the lack of detail in Enbridge’s project plan, which likely has that company “mystified,� too. In short, the BC government is asking Enbridge for a level of detail that is not required at this stage of the project approval process, and it’s unfair to Enbridge for the government to use this lack of detail to publicly bludgeon the company and make them look like they’re either hiding something, are incompetent, or weren’t ready to enter the National

Energy Board process. While I don’t understand the politics or the logic behind the rejection of the Morrison Mine project, the politics behind the BC Liberals’ position on the Enbridge pipeline is all too clear: they’re trying to play catch up with the NDP, who outflanked them on this particular pipeline in advance of the May 2013 election. In effect, the Liberal

government is signaling to the oil and gas investment community that they are welcome to invest in BC as long as the political landscape doesn’t require them to reject that investment in the most public manner possible. The way the BC government is playing crass politics with the Enbridge pipeline (picking a fight with Alberta, the federal government,

Do you have someone you are remembering from the First or Second World Wars, the Korean Conflict, the Middle East crisis or the various peacekeeping missions over the years?

Pool options presented Williams Lake City Council recently received a presentation concerning the preferred option for the replacement of the Sam Ketcham Pool. Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants Ltd (PERC) have proposed a concept that would see the current pool repaired and a new

leisure pool added onto the existing Cariboo Memorial Complex building. The leisure pool would have features such as a “lazy river” and waterslide, as well as three swimming lanes. The repair of the current pool and construction of the leisure pool would be built in two separate phases, ensuring that one pool

would be operational at all times during construction. The concept also calls for the construction of a second floor above the existing change rooms to house fitness space. The change rooms would also be expanded. The consultants have determined the current pool is underserving the community by approximately 43,000 swims per year, and expect the recommended concept will serve the community for at least 50 years. The current estimated cost for this concept is $11.3 million. Earlier this year, PERC held its first round of public consultation, and identified several common themes. Among them were that the community must have a pool, and that the pool needs a long-term solution, rather than a short-term fix. The City of Williams Lake/Central Cariboo Joint Committee is awaiting a final report from the consultants before deciding next steps.

Keith Beerling of Maple Leaf Loading Ltd. talks shop and job opportunities with former trucker and TRU welding student Jamie Dunphy, who stopped by the booth during the B.C. Jobs Start Here Job Fair held Friday at the TRU campus.

TRUCKING: Job Series

Long haul drivers wanted If it’s job you’re looking for, the trucking industry seems to have plenty to offer. Keith Beerling, manager of human resources for Maple Leaf Loading Ltd., was one of many companies giving information out and accepting job applications at the BC Jobs Start Here Job Fair held at the TRU gymnasium last Friday. “Log haulers are perfect for what we need,” said Beerling. “The logging experience gives them an edge.” Beerling said Maple Leaf Loading has job opportunities at Chetwynd and Stewart for those interested in driving big trucks,

pulling heavy loads. Primarily the work involves hauling off-road as much as 120 tons of coal over 12 per centgrade mountains. He said their biggest truck has 14 axles, which is why drivers need three-to-five years experience but is also why the wage is so attractive. “When we advertise, we tell people if you come to work with us, it’s $100,000 (per year),” Beerling said, adding the company provides paid housing at their Chetwynd location and flyin transportation with housing at their Stewart location. Despite the incentives, Beerling said it is still difficult to

find workers. “We just can’t get them.” said Beerling, who just returned from a trip to Jamaica to look for workers. At Friday’s job fair, Jamie Dunphy, a welding student and former log truck driver stopped by to check out Maple Leaf ’s job board, noting that log truck jobs are comparable in wages and drivers can be based out of home. “Guys want to be home,” Beerling said, agreeing their toughest competition comes from the logging industry. Other companies looking for truck drivers at Friday’s fair included mills and mines.

FALL HAT TRENDS

a special supplement to

FALL/WINTER

Belts

This season the belt is not only trendy but it is a relevant accessory. To be in vogue you should wear your belts not only with dresses, skirts and trousers, but also with jackets, coats, tunics and fur coats. Today's belt collections you will discover a variety of textiles, forms and original facings. Narrow belts are still in vogue, but wide ones have once again lead the trending fashion. Large details, rigid forms and metal buckles are a must in the wide belt design. This fall you will notice a lot of metallic elements in the facing of belts. Texture plays a big role this fall season and the latest trends are suede, fabric and even fur and the coloring is bright. Long belts that wrap around your waist twice or lay neatly on your hips are a fun and sexy accessory. Some belt collections of the season offer one more graceful and original solution...belts that fasten in the back. There is no rule this fall/winter season when it comes to the perfect belt except go and check out what great and wonderful belts our local merchants have on display. The more the merrier... as they say and it's true, you can never own too many belts.

Many women still wear hats to protect their heads and hair from the elements but this is going to change this season! The hat is becoming a little more than just a practical item. It is a real and valuable fashion accessory that will complete your fall warerobe or help you stand out. Fur hats No one can deny that fur (genuine or fake) is beautiful and luxurious which makes it a popular choice with all women of all ages and fashion tastes. The fur hat this season comes in many different styles, shapes and in a variety of colours. Fur hats are very versatile when it comes to wearability. You can wear fur hats with leather pants, jeans, velvet shirts or prints, with nearly any style of clothing and footwear.

COWBOY HATS Cowboy hats are going to play a significant role this fall season. The cowboy hat can be paired with a cropped jacket and leather gloves, and any outfits with zippers . For the ultimate look go for brighter colours and edgy accessories. The cowboy hat will look right at home when you wear it to a music festival or a road trip across the country. CLOCHE HATS If you prefer super feminine than this is your choice. Originally from the 1920's, the cloche hat is elegant and sophisticated. Wear a cloche hat with dresses, skirt suits, trench coats and chic coats. A classic high leather boot as well as a pair of matching leather gloves and your outfit is complete. The cloche hat can be worn at your holiday party, weddings, to a casual cocktail party.

LOOK 10

POUNDS

THINNER

One of the easiest ways to look 10 pounds thinner is to wear clothing that fits your body type well. Two of the biggest mistakes us women make is wearing oversized, baggy clothing and or wearing clothing that's too tight. Although achieving a great fit can be difficult and sometimes may require alterations, great fitting clothing will make any woman look thinner.

Cathy Alexander Today we will cover an important, yet rarely spoken about aspect of fashion: How To Deal With Your Spouse. Firstly, always be unrepentant and unapologetic…always. Your man, “Gee honey, you sure seem to spend a lot of money on clothes, shoes, jewellery, make-up and your hair.” Your reply, “I know, look at me, I’m fabulous. Thanks for noticing. Plus looking good makes me happy. We both know if I’m happy you’re happy, and I just want you to be happy.”

tips on

HOW TO deal with a significant other

Don’t feel badly about pointing out other women who have even more clothing, shoes, jewellery etc, than you. I know my name is often trotted out in various households around the Cariboo as a symbol of fear. My friend’s husbands are often reminded they could be saddled with the likes of me, with my humongous footwear collection. For my part, I always play along and tell the husbands that not only is my shoe collection large…it is not inexpensive. Ladies…you are welcome. Lastly, you must always remember your man has expensive habits of his own. One of the great gifts men have been given is the knowledge that the things they love and spend money on (golf, hunting, car restoration, motorcycles, single malt scotches and Asian carpets) are necessities and not feel good hobbies. If he can enjoy the things that bring him pleasure without guilt, so can you.

Clothing that is very loose, baggy, or saggy gives the illusion that the person is even bigger than she really is. So although it's tempting to wear oversized garments in an attempt to cover a few extra pounds, this strategy will not work for the woman who wants to look thinner. Tight clothing not only reveals figure flaws that can easily be concealed with well designed clothing that fits properly, but it also makes a woman look bigger than she really is. Too often we are tempted to squeeze into clothing that's too small because of that little number on the tag, you know the one the reveals the size! We tend to get hung up on a certain size, no matter whether it's a size 0 or a size 20, and refusing to wear any clothing with a larger size frequently gets us into trouble with proper clothing fit. After purchasing the article simply cut off the size tag than you will never have to look at it again. FALL FASHION TREND

THE

PANT SUIT

Pant suits have been in and out of style since the 1960's when they first gained popularity with women. This fall's pants suits look much different from the pants suits women were wearing way back than. From fur collars, to embroidered gold embellishments, to men- inspired striped pant suits this trendy look is sure to inspire. Pant suits are a very practical choice for wear-to-work attire because the jacket and pants can either be worn together or separately to create a new look in an instant.

Trevor also served as a First Nations Role Model, recognized by School District 27. “I’m a very proud mom, I’ve always been his biggest fan,” said Hance, who works as an Addictions Counsellor at the Nenqayni Wellness Centre. Hance said at 18 Trevor was accepted into the Armed Forces and, in 2009, was sent to Afghanistan as a PRT – Provincial Reconstruction Team for nine months. “It was a great experience for him,” said Hance of Trevor's time abroad. “Just having the opportunity to work with another country in a Provincial Reconstruction Team role, was the opportunity of a lifetime.” Trevor serves as part of the 2PPCLI -Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry and is currently stationed in Shilo,

Mom Debra Hance knows all too well the mix of emotions that comes with having a son serving in the military. “I’m honoured and proud of my son, but it’s very stressful at the same time,” said Hance, whose 23-year-old son Trevor is serving a second term as an Infantry soldier with the Canadian Armed Forces. Hance will be representing all mothers whose children have served or are currently serving in the military, as the Silver Cross Mother at Remembrance Day services in Williams Lake this Sunday, Nov. 11. “I am honoured and excited,” she said. Hance said Trevor’s journey which lead him to the military began at a Columneetza Career Fair when he was in high school. “Right there Trevor was hooked,” she said. At 17, the summer before his final year of school, Trevor and his mom researched their options and Trevor chose to attend the six-week Bold Eagle Program for First Nations interested in military life at Wainwright, AB. “I was hoping he

Thunder Mountain Speedway Awards

Much anticipated bike film comes to town

Mountain bike film premieres Submitted by Charlene Lupien Special to the Cariboo Advisor This is an epic mountain bike film created by Free Ride Entertainment and supported by Red Bull. This movie has been premiered so far in Las Vegas and recently Toronto and will be shown in Williams Lake at the “Paradise Cinemas” on November 29th at 7pm. This will be a one time showing with limited seating. All proceeds will support the local mountain bike association, “Ride the Cariboo Consortium.” “Where the Trail Ends” is a journey about free ride mountain biking with pro riders from BC, USA and Spain. The film also features local talent; Big Mountain Free Rider, James Doerfling, Action Sport Photographer and guide/operator in Argentina segment, John Wellburn, and Jetboat Operator, Doug Green. These riders challenge their riding abilities and really push themselves to their limits by putting themselves out of their comfort zones. They venture to different parts of the planet with their passion for free riding and take on terrain in some of the worlds most extremely remote areas, most of which

had never been ridden before or will again. The various segments of the movie take place in China's Gobi Desert, Nepal, Utah, Argentina and the Canyons of the Fraser River (Williams Lake, BC). This movie was filmed and recorded using the most advanced filmmaking techniques and sound equipment ever used in this genre, which makes this a must see on the big screen. Some of the technical gear included dolby digital sound equipment, high def POV cameras, Cineflex laden helicopters and even a phantom camera that can shoot 2600 frames per second in high definition. The scenery in this film will appeal to a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts, especially the Fraser River segment that features some of the local wildlife found in this area. We have the most amazing section of Fraser River right in our own backyard. This exciting film will inspire even the newest outdoor enthusiast to get out and explore some this incredible terrain. Where the Trail Ends will also be premiered in Vancouver on November 9th at “The Vogue Theatre” at 7pm and the Whistler premier will be announced soon.

Thunder Mountain Speedway wrapped up its exciting 2012 season with an Award's Banquet, dinner and dance last weekend.

Parasite threatens Canadian frogs Extra or twisted limbs, skin webbings: these deformities disable young frogs so they are not very good at escaping predators such as birds, which happen to be the next host in the lifecycle of a parasite that’s spreading into Canada.

Corey Roberts-Reynolds is a Master’s Student in Environmental Studies at TRU. His work has been done over the last two years at Isobel Lake near Kamloops, focusing on the Pacific tree frog and Spotted frog. His newly-

published paper describes the first time this parasite has been found in Canadian amphibians and, more importantly, the first time it has caused high levels of deformities north of the border. Come and hear about the biology of this phenomenon,

and how it threatens the survival of amphibian populations. Thursday, November 8, at 7:30 pm at the Scout Island Nature House. This is a free presentation, brought to you by the Williams Lake Field Naturalists.

What’s the Scoop! your guide to what’s going on in Williams Lake

To place your non-profit event listing you are invited to email no later than Thursday for the following week’s edition of the Cariboo Advisor reporter@caribooadvisor.com

Williams Lake over 40 Activity Club - A group for singles and couples over 40 with similar and varied interests. Activities

may include dinners, hiking, camping, movies etc. Always looking for more ideas and people willing to host activities. For

IN THEATRES SKYFALL James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested when her past comes back to haunt her and topsecret MI6 files are leaked—meaning the identities of each and every undercover agent placed in terrorist rings around the world may be compromised. When the agency itself comes under attack, Bond finds himself on a mission that takes him from Istanbul to the South China Sea to track down and destroy the threat, no matter the personal cost. But as secrets about M’s past are revealed along the way, the agent finds himself questioning his loyalty to her. CLOUD ATLAS Cloud Atlas begins by introducing us to its many protagonists whose stories take place decades and even centuries apart. We meet naïve 18th century lawyer Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess); a handsome young composer named Robert Frobisher (Ben Whishaw) living in the 1930s, hippie journalist Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) reporting in the 1970s, publisher Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) living in the present day, Korean clone worker Somni-451 in the distant future and finally a tribesman named Zachary (Tom Hanks) in post-apocalyptic Hawaii. The lives of these seemingly unrelated characters are inexplicably linked through fate, chance and emotion. As each character faces dilemmas—whether issues of life or death or establishing liberation from a life of slavery or servitude—Cloud Atlas arches on the belief that our actions and destinies may not always be our own and the sometimes unexplainable feelings of reincarnation and déjà vu that humans experience have actual meaning.

HOrOscOpe Aries, you will know how to smooth over an embarrassing situation this week. You come across assertive and dominant, and others naturally listen to you.

Last Week’s Answers

I know a ‘Hero Sandwich’ would normally be made out of a hoagie bun or perhaps a submarine sandwich bun, however, one of the neat things about cooking is you don’t have to always be normal, and the dish, most often, will turn out to be pretty tasty. With Remembrance Day upcoming, I thought perhaps that a ‘Hero Sandwich’ would be apropos however I believe a little too much bread with those big buns could be reduced and replaced with more sliced meat or vegetables. I’m not sure how

the hero sandwich was named but I am sure we could borrow the name and attach it to a sandwich that reflects upon the folks who fought for Canada in the many military conflicts involving our country. For sure, those who fought for us, were definitely heroes.

NOVEMBER 5 Kris Jenner, Manager (57)

Gemini, the time has come to reevaluate a certain situation, but you are up for the challenge. It may be hard to communicate your goals to others, but your persistence will pay off.

NOVEMBER 7 Rachele Smith, Dancer (25)

I know a sandwich will never represent how brave those people were, to leave this land and fight in another country, often in atrocious conditions. They were brave. So what would you put in a hero sandwich? I would like to build a big strong looking sandwich, using regular bread. One that would have a variety of meats and vegetables. For me, I would use whole grain brown bread, and would cover one side with Mayonnaise. Sometimes I might throw in some finely

cut garlic, about four cloves. No sense letting bad breath get in the way of a good sandwich, eh! I would add in beef for some of the meat, along with some juicy ripe tomato slices without all of the seeds. A little sea salt and ground black pepper, straight up please, no additives for hero sandwiches, huh? Some Romaine lettuce, would be nice, along with a few pieces of bacon. Time for some thickly sliced cucumber, a layer of onion and some more sea salt and ground pepper. Off the top of my head I would suggest

Leo, now is the time focus so that your dreams and plans can become a reality. Put all of your efforts into realizing your goals, and you won’t be sorry for having done so. Virgo, pay particular attention to your financial records. Otherwise, you may find yourself struggling to reconcile all of your accounts at year’s end.

A hero sandwich the daily special for Remembrance Day that your choices of meat would perhaps be different from mine. Or maybe you might just concoct a giant vegetable sandwich, that may represent a hero to you. Whatever you think represents a hero sandwich to you, just do it, as long as the Remembrance for our veterans is there on Nov 11th, and always. Bye for now and GOOOD COOKING.

NOVEMBER 4 Doris Roberts, Actress (82)

Taurus, your plan to modify a project this week will meet with great results. You may become interested in an organization that showcases your skills.

Cancer, things you say have a greater impact on others than you may realize. Therefore, think through what you say to make sure your words come across as intended.

This is the ideal time to move forward in your career, Libra. Be assertive and things will fall into place. Embrace a new opportunity and make the most of it.

Scorpio, you have enough drive and enthusiasm to get through a NOVEMBER 18 challenging time. There may be a Linda Evans, Actress few opportunities to go above and (70) beyond in your business ventures. Self-discipline is something you will need in excess this week, Sagittarius. Use this to your advantage when you work with others to plan recreational activities. Capricorn, you have enough enthusiasm to get things done, but getting things off the ground is more difficult. It’s time to buckle down and work through tasks.

You prefer to be in control of a situation, Aquarius. However, sometimes you have to relinquish control to someone else. Do so with grace and humility. Now is the time to make progress in something that has been on your mind for quite some time, Pisces. Take action before it’s too late.

Legion plays important role in Remembrance By Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Though the Royal Canadian Legion does offer a gathering place for fellowship, it is certainly not its main objective, says Legion Zone Commander Vivian MacNeil. “Our mission is to preserve remembrance - to honour the fallen of all wars and support

our Canadian Forces,” MacNeil says. “We have to remember what has happened in the past so we can better evaluate what is happening now and into the future.” MacNeil says the B.C. and Yukon command is a leader in providing support services for veterans and their families; including

the Veteran Transition Program, Partnership with Military Family Resource Centre, Troop Morale Fund, fighting for the rights of veterans by providing government advocacy, housing for veterans and their families with Honour and Winch Houses at the coast, Lost Veterans Housing and the Cochrell House, which

provides a safe place for homeless veterans on Vancouver Island. “That is for street veterans who have fallen through the cracks,” MacNeil said Cochrell House. “There is a great need for it there.” MacNeil said the legion contributes more than $4.3 million every year to support community health care, social and educational needs and heritage programs. In Williams Lake, the Legion contributes to bursaries, seniors, minor hockey, Little Britches Rodeo, medical equipment for the hospital and for both the 3064 Rocky Mountain Rangers and Sea Cadets. “We have given to just about every sports group in town,” says MacNeil. It is the poppy campaign however, which is the Legion’s greatest role. “It is the most important thing we do,” she says. Locally about

Mayor Kerry Cook receivies the first poppy from Cariboo Zone Commander Vivian MacNeil of Branch 139 of the Legion recently. The poppy serves as a symbol of remembrance and respect to those who have served or are currently serving our country, and also raises funds for veterans in need of assistance.

$20,000 is raised every year through the poppy campaign. MacNeil said the poppy fund is held in trust for veterans and their dependents to be used in emergency situations. If not utilized, the Legion follows strict guidelines to redirect the money for community organizations locally. The poppy, of course, is our symbol of remembrance. Wearing it honours those who have served our country. Remembrance Day services will begin this Sunday with an indoor service at the Gibraltar Room at 9:30 a.m., followed by a parade led by the Williams Lake Pipe Band and Colour Party, RCMP and veterans to City Hall and the cenotaph, where there will be a short ceremony and the laying of the wreaths. At 11 a.m., two minutes of silence will be observed while members of the Williams Lake Flying Club conduct a fly pass overhead, in fall-

the series, Caitlin Press, that there were many more interesting stories yet to be told. “She said, ‘Do something about it,’ so I did,” said French, who is launching the book at the Williams Lake Branch Library this Friday at 7 p.m. French said the Cariboo Chilcotin has always been known for its image of macho men in logging, mining and ranching, however less has been said about the women of the area. “I think there are some pretty extraordinary women around here, and it was time we heard about them,”

she said. In her book, French has given a voice to those influential women of both the past and present who have embarked on various careers and political paths from the remote countrysides to businesses around the lakecity, beginning with the late Mickey Dorsey. “Today most of the Chilcotin country is served by decent roads, hydro power, television and the Internet. It wasn’t always so. The west Chilcotin particularly was a holdout when it came to the trappings of modern civilization. It was a man’s country, the

MacNeil said there will be a lunch and live entertainment throughout the day, with Save On Foods providing a beef dip in the afteroon.

Her other works include The Road Runs West and Ranchland.

Bi-weekly payments can be made by making payments equivalent to the sum of 12 monthly payments divided by 26 bi-weekly periods every two weeks commencing on the contract date. Dealer may sell for less. Offers vary by model and not all combinations will apply. ***Estimated fuel consumption ratings for model shown: 2012 Fusion 2.5L I4 6-speed automatic transmission: [9.0L/100km (31MPG) City, 6.0L/100km (47MPG) Hwy].
