A number of City of Williams Lake employees have volunteered their time to haul dirt into and out of the Cariboo Memorial Complex for the 23rd Annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo April 19-21. The staff volunteers, from the Streets and Parks Divisions of the City, will donate between 70-90 total man-hours to operate a loader and trucks to haul the dirt in and out of the arena. The work will be done outside of the volunteers’ scheduled work shifts. City Municipal Services staff have volunteered to do

this work since 2007. “We are happy to help out the community, and help make these important events happen,” says Matt Sutherland, Streets/ Parks Division foreman at the City. “This is one way we can make a difference for the community.” At its March 19th meeting, Council resolved to fund up to 50 per cent of the cost of bringing soil in and out of the Indoor Rodeo for this year only, including equipment fuel and maintenance, in order to alleviate hardship on the Association due to the short notice before the

CRD to host Williams Lake Fringe OCP Open House The Cariboo Regional District will be hosting an important meeting for fringe area residents this Thursday evening. The open house, scheduled to take place at 5:30 p.m. at the Pioneer Complex, is for CRD residents to learn about and provide input into the proposed CRD Williams Lake Fringe Area Official Community Plan. On March 1, 2013, the Board of Directors gave the proposed document OCP two readings and it is now available for public consultation and consideration. An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a statement of objectives and policies used to guide decisions on planning and land use manage-

ment within the area covered by the plan. The OCP serves as a foundation for all policies, regulations, and decisions pertaining to land use and development in the plan area. The CRD said it is extremely important for residents to attend this session and have the opportunity to provide feedback and suggestions to the CRD’s Board of Directors before the Plan is adopted and forwarded to the Province for final consent. For residents who are unable to attend this meeting, or for those interested in the OCP’s content, the Williams Lake Fringe Area Official Community Plan and its associated schedules, are posted on the CRD website at cariboord.bc.ca.

Price investigation passes one month mark Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Time is not on their side as RCMP investigators continue to search for clues into the sudden disappearance of 61-year-old Gary Price. A month has passed since Mr. Price vanished from the small community of Likely without a trace, and the absence of any explanation or evidence is pointing more and more to the only plausible conclusion -- that Mr. Price was met with foul play, say police. “Everybody is con-

Gary Price cerned,” says Staff Sgt. Ken Brissard of the investigation. “We have no evidence and no reason to believe he’s walked away ... there’s just nothing to explain why he disap-

peared off the face of the earth and remains that way.” In fact, all evidence leading to Mr. Price’s disappearance tells the story of a man quite content with his quiet life at remote Cariboo Lake. Once a guide outfitter, and a man adept at surviving for large periods of time in the wilderness, Mr. Price was also a man who had great affection for his cat, said Brissard and lead investigator on the Price case, Const. Dan Hay.

“He was very fond of his cat. He loved his animals,” said Hay. Hay said their investigation revealed Mr. Price was last seen February 23 buying supplies at the general store in Likely. And his truck was found a couple kilometres from Likely on the Keithly Creek Road, headed towards Cariboo Lake, parked on the side of the road. Still inside the vehicle were Price’s groceries, including food for his beloved cat, that he

had purchased at the store. “We’re trying to determine what happened to him after he left the store on the afternoon of Saturday, Feb. 23,” said Hay. “It appears he never returned home after that.” The police are urging anyone who may recall anything regarding Mr. Price, particularly on Feb. 23 or 24, to contact police. “Someone out there knows something,” said Brissard.

“I guarantee there are people who have information, maybe even something they don’t think is important. Sometimes the smallest piece of information is that last piece of the puzzle that we need. We truly, truly are asking for the public’s assistance.” Police are also asking snowmobilers who were at Yank’s Peak on the weekend of February 23 or 24 to report whether or not they saw Mr. Price, who worked for the local snowmobile club collecting trail fees

on the weekends. “Everyone who knew him said he was very polite and respectful, just a really nice guy,” said Brissard. Const. Hay said Mr. Price does not have any children however his siblings and extended family are very worried about him, as are police. “We suspect something grave happened to him.” Anyone with information on Mr. Price can contact Williams Lake RCMP at 250-3926211 or Crimestoppers.

Youth rally against New Prosperity Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Tsilhqot’in Nation chiefs are speaking out against one of their own former chiefs, who they say no longer represents the voice of their people. Chief Russell Myers Ross of Yunesit’in says Ervin Charleyboy’s comments to CBC’s Daybreak program recently regarding New Prosperity has chiefs saying enough is enough. “Ervin is no longer a legitimate spokesperson for the Tsilhqot’in Nation,” said Myers Ross. “He (Charleyboy) ran in the previous election supporting Taseko Mines and did not get re-elected. His opinions are not a reflection of our people.” Charleyboy recently said he wanted to host a youth forum for First Nations to voice their support for the controversial mine proposed to be located near Fish Lake, approximately 125 kilometres from Williams Lake. Myers Ross said the situation prompted about 100 Tsilhqot’in youth to gather for a rally of their own March 27 in Williams Lake – against

The youth have said New Prosperity is not a vision or a value they endorse.” Seventeen-year-old Micole Myers of Yunesit’in says she doesn't support the mine. “I do not want the area turned into a mine.” said Myers, who was at the rally last week. “I worry about the environmental impact it could have.” Currently, the proposed mine is under an environmental review by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.

Fire Centre urges caution

The Cariboo Fire Centre is asking the public to exercise caution with any outdoor burning activities this spring. As the snow melts, dried grass from last summer is uncovered and that material can be highly flammable. Almost all wildfires at this time of the year are caused by people and are therefore preventable. Homeowners and industry personnel are encouraged to consult the BC FireSmart manual and take the following precautions:

Ensure that enough people, water and tools are on hand to control the fire and prevent it from escaping. Do not burn during windy conditions. Weather conditions can change quickly and the wind may carry embers to other combustible material and start new fires. Create a fireguard at least one metre around the planned fire site by clearing away twigs, grass, leaves and other combustible material. If you are planning a

large burn, consider conducting smaller burns around the perimeter beforehand to create a fuel break and help stop the fire from spreading beyond its intended size. Each of these fires should be kept small and must be completely extinguished before starting a new fire. The Province thanks the public for its continued help in preventing wildfires. If you see flames or smoke, call 1 800 663-5555 toll-free or call *5555 on your cellphone.

COMMUNITY: Booster

Founder’s vision reflected in Salt Jar Robyn Chambers Cariboo Advisor Life’s Salt Jar Warehouse is a labour of love for founder Sherry Cuthbertson. The thrift store, on Oliver Street, opened in September but its genesis had been in the works for half a decade. Cuthbertson recalls how when she and a friend were removing “truck loads” of items from the local share shed and sending them overseas they saw an unfulfilled niche. The warehouse, they hope, will fill that. “I really wanted an affordable place for people from all walks of life to come in and shop and volunteer,” she says. To that end, the store sells second-hand items donated by the community with all proceeds raised going to support community agencies who receive little funding. “A lot of groups in our community fall through the cracks. They don’t qualify for any funding anywhere and maybe some

people who run them don’t have the time to fundraise for them but they are really worthy causes …so it’s always been our desire to have a thrift store that supports those groups,” she says. To date, the warehouse has supported two organizations – the Great Room and the local Alzheimer society. Decisions as to which agencies receive support from the warehouse are left to the non-profit society’s five-member board. Agencies must apply to the board and can receive support for three to six months. “We’re really looking for the people who are in need of support,” Cuthbertson says. “We look at what they do in our community. It has to be impacting our community in a positive way.” The warehouse also supports the community’s homeless by providing warm weather wear and clothing for individuals who need assistance getting back on their feet.

However, she believes this can’t happen without full community support. “The only way this organization will survive is if we have 100 per cent support from the community,” she says. “Our vision from the very beginning is this is for the community. This is not my business, this is not my ministry; this is the community’s and it has to have the community’s 100 per cent support.” So far so good.

Tough luck for Sidney Crosby You couldn't help but wince last weekend seeing the replay of hockey great Sidney Crosby taking a devastating blow to the mouth Saturday night from a puck, sidelining him indefinitely. The injury which broke Crosby's jaw and several teeth, occurred in the first period of Pittsburgh's 2-0 win over the New York Islanders when the puck made a bad bounce and hit an unsuspecting Crosby in the mouth. Prior to this nightmare, the NHL's lead scorer had an impressive month with six goals

and 19 assists as Pittsburgh went 15-0-0 for the month, prompting the NHL to name Crosby as the first star for March. He also matched a career high with five assists against the Islanders on March 10, becoming the only active player with more than one five-assist game in his career. One of the most highly regarded draft picks in hockey history, Crosby has long been a fan favourite to watch since the 25-year-old from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia was drafted, but he has also been plagued with

injury including suffering several concussions. And now, just after we all started to relax and enjoy watching this home-grown talent, fans will have to wait and see once again when Crosby will return to game. The incident serves as a reminder of the injuries these players face during any given game for the love of their sport. And let's be thankful our favourite Montreal Canadians goalie, one Mr. Carey Price, has a full face helmet so as not to harm his million dollar smile.

World Health Day this Sunday This Sunday is World Health Day and the focus for 2013 is high blood pressure. Having high blood pressure increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure and if left uncontrolled,

can also cause blindness, irregular heartbeat and heart failure. High blood pressure is preventable, and can be countered by reducing salt intake, eating a balanced diet, avoiding the harm-

ful use of alcohol, taking regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy body weight and avoiding tobacco use. So throw away the salt shaker and take a walk this weekend.

Fighting for mental health services A family from Victoria have found themselves inadvertently taking a lead role in the fight for better mental health care services for children in B.C. Yesterday, mother Kelly Bradley as well as other parents, were to meet with Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid to discuss improvements to emergency care for children suffering from mental illnesses and to deliver over 35,000 petition signatures. MacDiarmid was to meet with the families face-to-face however had to stay in Vancouver, so the meeting with the parents was held via teleconference. In January, Kelly and Owen Bradley turned to the Internet to

tell their very personal story and launch a petition for change, after their daughter was sent home from hospital three times while in the middle of a mental health crisis. The 11-year-old, who is living with bipolar disorder, was said to be harming herself and her family. Since appealing to the public for support, the campaign has gathered more than 35,000 signatures and 3,000 comments from people reporting similar experiences. Last month, when Interior Health officials came to Williams Lake, the CEO said only six per cent of Interior Health's budget is dedicated to mental health. It doesn't take a mathemati-

cian to realize six per cent of the budget is just not enough when it's been said that 40 per cent of us will suffer a mental illness during our lifetime. It is also critical that children receive the best possible care, as young as possible, to less the damaging affects of mental illness on the body, mind and soul. Even while many government agencies try to increase awareness about mental illness, our health care budget allocation tells the real story about the priority we give mental health in our society. The only way those percentages will change is if parents of children suffering mental illness continue to fight for their children, and for better services.

David Fait has a bird's eyeview from the roof of the safety cabin at Yank's Peak on the weekend. Though most of the snow is gone around town, there is still plenty of snow left in the mountains for snowmobiling.

Investing in connections with no guarantee A couple of years ago somewhere south of town, an unusual something caught my eye. A doe was standing in an open marsh, but she wasn’t moving and her posture was odd. At first I thought she might be injured, but as the highway curved past where she stood, I noticed she was nursing a fawn. Motoring closer, I saw the fawn suddenly disappear and the doe walk off into the trees. There’s not much new about that kind of story

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett around here. But in hopes of getting a glimpse of the fawn, I crept to where I thought it had been and finally spotted the tiny spots of the most

diminutive fawn I have ever seen. Mrs. Bambi and I watched each other as I made my way back to the vehicle and nearly tripped over two more fawns! Triplets - a sight for the ages! And I have been looking for them ever since. A year later, while driving the same stretch of road, I noticed three small bucks grazing in the ditch, standing together a quarter of a mile from my initial sighting. And I wondered. Even in

my uncertainty, I was delighted! Then last fall my breath caught in my throat. At the same spot lay the mangled carcass of a deer. Was it one of ‘mine’? ‘Mine’ - maybe that’s why I wonder if the deer have sufficient food for the cold winter days, and why I worry when the temperature drops. Somewhere along the way, the smallest bit of me invested in a family of deer and they have become part of my world.

People, from a distance, look pretty odd at times. And they are so common we often dismiss them. What if getting closer revealed something more, a serendipitous bonus to enhance our lives for ages to come? It only takes a moment to thank the lovely, honest Asian woman at Tim Horton’s, or to chat with the person behind us in the grocery store line. The returns can begin right away. A lifetime of enrichment awaits.

Real value hides in common places. It can be revealed in a pause, or when we move ourselves just one step closer. I still see those little bucks everywhere! Of course, it can all go wrong. Vehicles strike deer. And someone we know may damage us with gossip, or take needed assistance and holiday with the funds in Disneyland. But should we quit connecting because there are dead deer by the road and persons who

make unwise decisions? If we stop investing, it might not change much for the deer or the unwise. But, oh dear, it would make all the difference to us. Our lives would be vastly diminished if we shied away from connecting, if we devoted ourselves to just that - ourselves. Your story of kismet interests me, but perhaps I’ll hear it later, ‘cuz right now I’m going out to look for deer. LOL@caribooadvisor.com.

River Valley process line replaced

Submitted photo

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride will be making a stop in Williams Lake this summer, performing at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds on July 18. More information on tickets sales will be available in the weeks to come.

The City of Williams Lake has completed the replacement of a section of process line serving the Capital Power Plant destroyed last year, with a solution to avoid the problem in the future. The line is now functional. A landslide in the River Valley adjacent to the Williams Lake solid waste transfer station destroyed a large section of the treatment water outfall from the Atlantic Power plant and a storm outfall pipe, which are critical components of City’s infrastructure. Emergency works were completed to ensure service was not interrupted. Because the process line had to be replaced in its existing location, creative thinking was needed to return the pipe to the same location and not have the same thing happen again. To alleviate any future problems, the pipe was directionally drilled from the top of the escarpment to the bottom. Engineers found a layer of earth that was relatively stable that the drillers could stay under from the top of the escarpment to the bottom, so land from future slides would travel over the pipe, and not affect it.  This drilling took months to complete, and the pipe has been re-established at both ends and the process water was able to be turned back on. Design work for Phase 5 of the River Valley Stormwater Management system, which includes the replacement of the destroyed outfall sewer pipe, is almost complete.

Stamps get some help to win Coy Cup Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor When the Stampeders battled through all the odds to win the Coy Cup in Kitimat last month, they didn’t have homeice advantage but they certainly felt at home with their Number One fan, F r a n c i s Johnson, in the stands cheering them on. Anyone who has attended a Stampeders game ever, will know who Johnson is. He sits faithfully in the stands, at home or away, drumming with his traditional First Nations drum to let the team know he’s behind them. “I do it because they tell me they get really motivated by the drumming,” Johnson says. “The sound of the drum (tradition-

Johnson helped drum the Stamps to victory last month in Kitimat at the Coy Cup Championships. ally) brings peace and strength.” Johnson’s son, Francis Johnson Jr., plays centre for

the Stamps and is the team’s Assistant Captain. He was a key player in the last two games during the Coy

Cup finals. After the Coy Cup win, Johnson performed a traditional honour song for the team and received his very own gold medal from the game and a championship ball cap. “These guys, I’m so proud of all of them, they are really hard workers. I’ve seen their ups and downs and this is really a once in a lifetime team… In my heart I knew they could win the Coy

Cup.” Johnson says his son is the only First Nations player on the Stampeders team since the all-Native Lac La Hache Tomahawks were formed, with his son choosing to stay on with the Stamps. “He’s played with these guys for years. They are all really close. He couldn’t leave them.” Johnson says the team’s journey to the Coy Cup was a battle, as the players faced injury, having to miss games due to work as well as some becoming fathers and also the lack of home-ice advantage leading up to the Coy Cup due to

the City strike, which forced critical games to be played away in Quesnel. Johnson faced his own challenges along the way to the Coy Cup, taking the brunt of bad behaviour from other team’s fans. “I took flack from the fans,” Johnson says of having objects thrown at him during the finals while he drummed. “But (I felt) I was taking it for the team. Our team was winning and (the fans) had to take it out on someone.” This weekend Johnson will gather with the team once again at the Stamp’s year end awards banquet to honour the

team and remember the hard fought battle for the cup. “They played hard no matter what. They deserve a lot of credit for it,” says Johnson. “This is a once-in-alifetime championship team and I’m proud and honoured to be apart of it.” Longtime volunteer Don Hanson says Francis is certainly a dedicated fan for the Stamps. “He's a great fan,” says Hansen. “The guys love him, and everybody certainly knows who he is.” The banquet for the Stampeders is being held this Saturday at Boston Pizza at 6 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.

Simple ways to add years to a vehicle’s life

Getting more for your money is a popular trend among consumers. As economic uncertainty reigns, smart consumers are looking for the best values in an effort to get the most out of each and every dollar they spend. One of the best ways to stretch a dollar is to take better care of your vehicle. Buying a home and financing a college education are perhaps the only times many consumers will spend more money than they do when purchasing a vehicle. But unlike a home or an education, few people take their vehicles seriously, all too often avoiding vehicle maintenance that can greatly increase a car or truck's life expectancy. Drivers who want to keep their cars going AD MAT SHELLS strong for years to come can do so in a handful of ways. AD• MAT SHELLS Prevent, prevent, prevent. Preventive maintenance might seem like a boring way

to spend a weekend morning or afternoon, but the efforts will be well worth it. Oil changes and filter replacements are quick and easy jobs but pay major dividends over the long haul. Drivers who aren't comfortable performing these tasks themselves need not worry about costly trips to the mechanic. Routine jobs like an oil change or air filter replacement are relatively inexpensive, and today's vehicles can go much longer between oil changes and filter replacements. Each vehicle manufacturer is different, so drivers should consult their owner's manual and adhere to the recommended maintenance schedule. • Stay balanced. Balanced tires are tires that will last longer. But an out of balance tire will not only shorten the life of tires, it can also do damage to the rest of the vehicle while simultaneously mak-

Routinely hitting the open road is one of the easiest ways to add years to a vehicle's life. ing riding in the car much less comfortable. When a tire is properly balanced, its mass is uniformly distributed around the axle, making for a smooth, vibration-free ride. However, an out of balance tire shortens the life expectancy of suspension components, including bearings and shocks. Repairs that result from an unbalanced tire can prove costly. Should a vibration occur as the

vehicle accelerates (typically, this vibration will be noticeable when the car reaches speeds of 40-45 mph), chances are the tires are not properly balanced. • Look good, feel good. The credo of 10/2011

"look good, feel good" isn't only applicable to humans. In fact, a car that looks good likely feels good as well. Washing and waxing a car regularly helps avoid rust under the carriage and in the wheel wells.

The longer a car goes between washes, the more likely it is to rust, and the paint is likely to corrode as well. There is no quick fix to either of these problems, but preventive maintenance, like routinely washing and waxing the vehicle, can keep these potentially menacing issues from ever rearing their rusty heads. Preventing rust and corrosion is also a good way to ensure a car's resale value does not diminish over time. • Get out and drive. Cars that spend most of their life in stop-andgo traffic likely won't last as long as those that routinely get out and go. That's because city driving with lots of stopping and going is very taxing on an engine. On a highway, air flow to the

First, slow down and put on your right-turn signal to indicate you will need to move into the right lane. Some people prefer to put their four-way-flashers on after they have successfully cleared the lanes and are ready to navigate onto the shoulder. Try to select a spot where you are not on a bend or where there is poor visibility or your vehicle cannot be seen by other drivers on the highway. You do not want to be injured while exiting or attempting to work on the pulled-over vehicle. Drivers should keep an emergency roadside assistance preparedness kit containing flares, emergency tri-

angles or cones, a flashlight, batteries, a poncho, booster cables, duct tape, a utility knife, cord, a blanket, and first aid supplies in the car as a precaution. Each item serves its own unique purpose. The Canadian Automobile Association recommends staying inside the vehicle, especially on a busy road. Tow trucks and police vehicles typically cruise busy stretches of road and help may arrive in a matter of minutes. Those who have a roadside assistance plan membership can use a cell phone to make a call for help. It is best to wait in the car until a tow truck or police arrive.

radiator, oil flow to the engine and everything that makes a car run is much more consistent, reducing the stress on the engine as a result. Constantly accelerating and decelerating is hard on an engine, while the consistent speeds of highway driving offer a welcome respite to the engine. City dwellers should get out and drive their car on a highway at least once a month for no less than 30 minutes. This is also a good way to get rid of potentially harmful condensation that can negatively impact engine performance. When looking to get more for your money, one of the best ways to do so is to take better care of the car sitting in your driveway.

Reduce fuel consumption to save money and help the planet Reducing fuel costs is foremost on the minds of many drivers. Myriad costs are associated with owning an automobile, many of which are within a driver's control. For instance, safe drivers are likely to spend less on auto insurance than drivers with a history of traffic violations or accidents, while drivers who purchase a vehicle with a high safety rating will likely spend less to insure that vehicle than they would a sports car. One of the costs associated with driving that some drivers may mistakenly feel is beyond their control is the cost of fuel. Drivers might not be able to control the price at the pump, but there are many ways drivers can spend less on fuel, helping them save money and helping the environment along the way. Emphasizing efficiency Making a vehicle more efficient is a great way to save money at the pump. But drivers don't need to get under the hood or have a mechanic's understanding of automobiles to make their cars more efficient. In fact, a few

Taking steps to reduce fuel consumption can benefit the environment and your bottom line. minor adjustments is all it takes to make a car more efficient and save drivers, regardless of their mechanical inclinations, money at the filling station. • Adequately inflate tires. Tires that are not properly inflated increase drag on a vehicle, which then

consumes more fuel to operate at full capacity. Check the driver's manual for the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure, and check the tire pressure frequently to ensure your car isn't working harder than it needs to be. • Clear out the trunk. A car filled with clutter

is carrying unnecessary weight, making it harder for the car to accelerate and consuming more fuel than it should be. Clear out the trunk and anything inside the vehicle that you don't need. • Open the windows at lower speeds. Air conditioning consumes lots of fuel, and many

auto experts suggest rolling down the windows when driving at lower speeds. When you begin driving a little faster, roll the windows up and turn on the air conditioning to reduce drag. Spend wisely How you're spending at the pump can also help you reduce fuel consumption and save you money. • Fill 'er up! Many drivers avoid filling up their tank when visiting the gas station for fear that filling up the tank makes the car heavier, decreasing the vehicle's fuel efficiency as a result. While that may be true, drivers who don't fill up make more trips to the filling station, and those trips can waste fuel. In addition, when the gas cap is removed from your vehicle, vaporized gas escapes from the tank, so opening the cap more frequently allows more vaporized gas to escape. • Pay for gas with a card that rewards you

made paper maps obsolete for many people. While GPS devices can be very convenient, especially on road trips, there are some tips to keep in mind. • Place the GPS device where it won't obstruct your vision or take your eyes off of the road for a good deal of time. • Don't treat the GPS as if it is infallible. Even with map updates and other accessories, a GPS can still make mistakes. Use common sense, especially where it would seem the GPS is guiding you in the wrong way. • Do not play with the controls while operating the car. If you need to adjust something on the GPS, do so only after pulling

over to a safe area. • Have a general idea where you are going so you'll know if the GPS

consumption can take steps to do just that. • Don't accelerate too quickly. Rapid acceleration consumes more fuel. When accelerating, do so gradually. You'll still get to the same place, but you'll get there with a lot more fuel. • Don't speed. Highway speeds more than 60 miles per hour significantly reduce fuel efficiency. Estimates suggest a car traveling at 60 miles per hour uses 20 percent less fuel than a vehicle traveling at 75 miles per hour. Toxic emissions, including carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides, also increase when vehicles travel more than 60 miles per hour. Reducing fuel consumption is a goal for environmentalists and drivers alike. There are several ways drivers can help their vehicle consume less fuel and benefit the planet at the same time.

After a hard winter, it’s time to get your car ready for spring...

Global positioning system (GPS)usage tips Today's drivers rely heavily on GPS technology, or global positioning system devices. GPS has revolutionized the way people drive and use maps and directions. While there are no hard statistics on the number of people who own GPSdevices, thousands of people have either a GPSdevice that comes pre-equipped in a car that they purchased or a standalone device that was bought after the fact. These devices come pre-loaded with maps that work with satellites in space. The GPS receiver figures out the distance to each and uses this information to deduce the location of the device in a process called trilateration. GPS devices have

with cash for making purchases. While using a cash-back credit card won't reduce your fuel consumption, it will earn you some money back on your fuel purchases. • Don't pay more for fuel your car won't utilize. Some drivers might feel as though putting a high-octane fuel in their vehicles will improve the vehicle's performance. But that's not the case. A high-octane fuel in a car that's built for a low-octane fuel won't improve the car's performance or its gas mileage. Only purchase the fuel the owner's manual recommends. For many new vehicles, that means 87-octane, or "regular," fuel, which is typically the most affordable. Drive wisely Driving habits can also impact how much fuel you're consuming. Driving habits can be hard to change, but drivers who start driving with a mind toward safety and reducing fuel

is potentially guiding you in the wrong direction and can maneuver in advance.

Learn to Run program changes lives The Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex is starting its 12-week ‘Learn to Run’ program on Thursday, April 4th at 5 p.m. The program is designed for beginner runners and will give you the basics of establishing your own sustainable running program that you will carry on beyond the 12-week program, theoretically the rest of your life. It will provide you with adequate base training to enter the local Kidsport Classic on Sunday, June 23rd either in the 5 km (team) or 10 km (individual or

team) categories. The program is designed to gently increase your running distance.  It starts with 30 seconds of running and 4 minutes of walking and slowly increases the endurance so that you are able to participate in a 5km Kidsport Classic Run at the end of the program. The Learn to Run Program changed the lives of Angela Laprairie, Jillian Neuner, Treena Brown, Jill Jennings, Tammy James, and Janice Laurie.  In 2006 Jill Jennings signed up to take the Kidsport Classic training pro-

gram so that she could learn to run. Jill was soon hooked on running, and convinced three of her coworkers to try the program the following year. “That first running session, I had ‘lawn mowing’ runners, sweat pants and a T-shirt to wear,” laughs Angela. “And the first thirty seconds of running was the longest thirty seconds ever!’  It was hard for the group to believe that they would actually run 5 kilometres, let alone someday be running ½ marathons.

They met at each others’ houses and carefully stuck to the timed walk/run schedule that their trainer gave them. “It is a mistake to look ahead in the running schedule because you will scare yourself.  Just stick to the week in front of you,” explains Dora Foote, who joined the group in 2008. The cost of the program is $89.00.  For more information, contact Denise Skarra at 250-398-7665.

PHILLIP PHILLIPS 2012 debut album from the winner of the 11th season of American Idol. Phillips’s unique style is inspired by Jonny Lang, John Butler, Dave Matthews and Damien Rice as well as Mumford & Sons and Tool. He describes his music as Jazz/Rock/ Alternative. Prior to American Idol, he also auditioned on the second season of America’s Got Talent but did not make it to its finals.

THE VOICE, THE COMPLETE SEASON 2013 release from the winner of season 3 of The Voice. Formerly the lead vocalist of Pop Punk band Hey M o n d a y, Cassadee split with her band and tried her hand at different styles of music for The Voice. In stepping out of her comfort zone, Cassadee surprised not only herself but her longtime Hey Monday fans with her new Country-edged Pop direction. These 12 amazing performances were highlights of the third season of the program and paved the way for Cassadee’s huge win on the popular television show. The Complete Season 3 Collection brings together all of The Voice winner Cassadee Pope’s performances during the 2012 season of the NBC reality vocal competition. With a voice that combines the power of Kelly Clarkson with the pop-country twang of Carrie Underwood, Pope often sang songs that walked this stylistic line. Included here are such songs as her cover of Miranda Lambert’s “Over You,” Maroon 5’s “Payphone,” Clarkson’s “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” and more.

HOrOscOpe Aries, you must stand up for what you believe is right, even if it costs you a few friends along the way. It is the price to pay for doing the honorable thing. Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling. Gemini, think about adding some new skills to your resume. It’s not that your job is in turmoil right now, but it always pays to be a step ahead when it comes to your career. Cancer, just because everyone else is making changes doesn’t mean you have to at this time as well. If things are working out, then let them stay as they are for a while.

Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, Virgo. Attend a fun function to put yourself in touch with new people and lead to encounters that can help your future.

Fresh herbs are the taste of spring It is so nice to get out in the garden and dig around in the dirt. The nice fresh smell of the dirt as it is turned over sure is a sign of spring. I cleaned my herb beds and found some oregano, thyme and sage at the stage where I could pick some and use them for cooking. It is fun cooking to use herbs all year, but the fresh baby herbs in the spring seem to be the best. Now I am waiting to plant more herbs so by the end of May I will have lots to use with a nice variety. You can use herbs

you plan to eat. You get more of the herb taste by adding them at the end rather than putting them in at the beginning of the cooking. Here’s an interesting spring herb dish.

in almost any cooking to add a different taste to your food. They go good in smoothies to drink at the end of the day. When using herbs, I like to put them in my dishes towards the end of the cooking process, about ten to fifteen minutes before

Spring Herb Rice 1 3/4 cup of water 1 cup of short grained rice 1 cup of chopped onion 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp butter 1 cup of sliced celery 1 cup of fresh sliced mushrooms ½ tsp salt 1/4 tsp of black pepper 2 tbsp fresh herbs such as oregano, thyme,

parsley and basil 1 tsp fresh snipped rosemary B o i l water in s a u c e pan, stir in uncooked rice, reduce heat to simmer for about 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed into the rice. Take of heat and let stand for about 5 minutes. In a big skillet cook onion in hot oil and butter for about 3 minutes, then add celery, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook for

Don’t set limits on what you do, Leo. Changes at work mean you may need to fill different roles that require new skills. There’s a good chance you can master them.

Libra, don’t feel guilty if your opinion differs from others’. If you don’t agree with the consensus, then that is your opinion and your right. Scorpio, say what is on your mind because sometimes people just need to hear the honest truth. You have a good way of exacting authority and representing others.

Sagittarius, get together with people who share your love of adventure this week. Together you can enjoy time spent living vicariously and enjoying the scenery flying by. Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion.
