Williams Lake Brownies Julia Bowman, Olivia Sawyer, Madelyn Feist and Madilyn Gamna take part in the Hike for Hunger event Saturday morning in Williams Lake. The hike began with Pathfinders at Walmart, and picked up participants along the way at the Real Canadian Wholesale Club, Save On Foods and Safeway before ending up at the Salvation Army where the children all made food donations. The event was organized to raise awareness but also to teach the children the plight of the poor in our community, who would have to walk to get what food they could on a limited budget.

ONE YEAR: Anniversary

Crown still considering charges in MacDonald case Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor As family and friends plan a gathering to mark the oneyear anniversary of the death of 20-year-old nursing student Rayel MacDonald, Regional Crown Counsel continues to review the case against the man initially arrested in relation to her death. “There hasn’t been any charge assessment decision made on it as of yet,” said Crown spokesperson Neil Mackenzie. MacDonald and a 19-year-old fellow nursing student were struck by a vehicle as they crossed the street near

the bottom of Carson Drive in the early morning hours, April 22, before a large crowd of friends. Martin Gentles was initially arrested and charged with impaired driving causing death and impaired driving causing bodily harm in the days following the incident however Crown stayed all charges against him in Williams Lake Provincial Court June 27, 2012. Mackenzie said Crown made the move because additional information was required from the RCMP. He said that investigative work has been

completed by the RCMP and returned to Crown, where it continues to be reviewed. He said the actions of Crown in the MacDonald case are not uncommon in complex, serious files such as these where expert reports are required. He said there is no deadline to file charges in an indictable offense, if they so choose. Meanwhile, family and friends of Rayel are planning to gather at the Memory Garden at the bottom of Carson Drive at 11 a.m. for a Memorial Gathering in Rayel’s honour Saturday. The MacDonalds have said the year since

City to consult public on the birds and bees The City of Williams Lake will prepare separate bylaws to allow for the keeping of hens and honeybees in City limits, and hold public consultations on the proposals. Over the last few years City staff and Council have been asked numerous times about the topics of back yard chickens and beekeeping in residential areas of Williams Lake. Letters have been received from the 
 Central Beekeeping Association and petitions regarding chickens and the most recent request for regulating Honey Bees from Clinton Shane Ekdahl, Founder of “Day of the Honey Bee”, as well as the Food Policy Council. As a response to these interests staff have researched what other municipalities have done with similar

requests and interests. In recent years, many communities across BC and North America have amended bylaws to allow for the keeping of backyard hens and beekeeping, such as Vancouver, Saanich, Terrace, Vernon, Kamloops and many others around Canada and the States. Keeping backyard hens and bees appears to be a growing grassroots movement across North America that is lobbying local governments to allow for hen keeping in urban settings. The keeping of hens and bees support the Local Food and Agriculture Strategic Priority in the City’s Official Community Plan. Localizing food production has the potential to increase food security and reduce the City’s over-

all carbon footprint. In addition, hens can also help reduce lawn and garden pest populations, an environmentally friendly alternative to pesticides. Hens are also an effective way to minimize house hold waste, as they can be fed a wide variety of food scraps, which currently end up in the landfill. Bees are a great pollinator for gardens in urban settings. Permitting backyard hens and bees in Williams Lake has the potential to help create a more sustainable community and provide families with a healthy food source. Details of the public consultation process will be communicated in the coming weeks. For more information, please contact Chris Hutton, Planning Technician, at chutton@williamslake.ca.

Autism: Walk

Accepting our differences Robyn Chambers Cariboo Advisor Leah Volkmann knows the joys and challenges that come with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Volkmann’s son was three when she received the diagnosis. However, she knew before she was told that there was something a little different about her son’s behaviour. He was sensitive to noise and light and would

become overstimulated in certain situations, Volkmann recalls. “As a kid a truck would go by and it would scare him or somebody would sneeze and it would startle him almost to a freak-out kind of way. “I could tell with my son. I just never knew what it was called.” Volkmann says, for her, diagnosis was “something to work with” rather than a

On Saturday, the Williams Lake Autism and other related disabilities parents support group held an autism walk to raise awareness in the community. “We just want people to be aware – to just be accepting,” says Volkmann. The Autism Society of B.C. defines autism as a neurological disorder resulting in a developmental disability that affects communication, social understanding and behaviour, activities and interests. “Autism is different for every kid,” says Volkmann. “The slogan is, ‘If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person’.” Autistic individuals, she says, “process things differently” smelling, tasting, touching and hearing at a “higher level.” “It’s just a different

way of thinking but I think it’s an incredible way of thinking.” However, receiving diagnosis and treatment remains a challenge in the community. “This town is a little tough that way…There isn’t a lot and we are so far away from a lot of resources,” she says. To help cope, the support group provides parents with opportunities to share experiences, ideas and information. Volkmann’s son is now nine and in Grade 4. Through the years she’s seen “huge growth” in him and although he has what she describes as “a few quirks” she says he’s now better able to manage daily challenges. Volkmann fervently believes knowledge breeds understanding and acceptance; to that end she talks about the disorder often with the hope of educating others. “I think we would live in a boring place if we didn’t have people with autism because I think they shed a different light on things,” she says.

Boys and girls Hike for Hunger Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Armed with backpacks filled with food and a desire to serve their community, more than 30 children participated in the Hike for Hunger Saturday morning, walking from Walmart to the Salvation Army downtown to help raise awareness about poverty in the lakecity. “It’s not fair for the people who don’t have food to eat,” said Girl Guide and hike participant,12-year-old Jolene Larson, of why she took part in the event. “It’s nice to donate food. It makes me feel like a generous person.” The Hike for Hunger has been organized in years’ past, however Girl Guide leader Theresa Rud revived the walk this year to engage the children in community issues and teach them of the struggles facing some members of our

community. “It’s a worthwhile community service,” Rud said of the hike, estimating the children and their units donated hundreds of dollars worth of food to the food bank. “It brings awareness to the food bank, but it also brings awareness to the boys and girls about the needs in the community.” Of particular importance to Rud was the actual walk, to teach the children the difficulties facing those living in poverty, such as not having a vehicle to drive to the store, or the money to buy much food. “We were going to walk, rain or shine, because that’s what you have to do when you don’t have a vehicle or food.” Members of Pathfinders (aged 12-14), Rangers (1518) and Venturers (1417) started the walk at

9-11) and Scouts (ages 11-14) at the Real Canadian Wholesale Club, continuing their walk to Save On Foods where they were joined by Brownies (ages 5-7) and Cubs (ages 8-10) and then off to Safeway to pick up the Beavers (ages 5-7) before hiking down Oliver Street and to the Salvation Army Food Bank where they were met by a grateful Salvation Army Capt. Claudia Kadonaga. Kadonaga thanked the children for their efforts and talked to them about the needs, giving them a tour of the food bank. She said the Salvation Army hands out about 25

food hampers on average per day for needy singles and families, and about 600 hampers per month. Standing amongst the shelves lined with food, Kadonaga told the children the Salvation Army serves approximately 130 meals of breakfast and lunch to men, women and children five days per week in Williams Lake and

that, on average, people who are on social assistance have only about $200 per month to spend on food and clothing. “There is a huge, huge need here, so thank you,” Kadonaga said. After the children left, Kadonaga told The Advisor of the biggest challenge facing the needy in Williams Lake. “There just isn’t enough subsidized housing to allow low income families to meet all their own needs,” she said, noting often people have to pay as much as three quarters of their limited income on rent here. A d d i t i o n a l l y, Kagonada said those on social assistance usually face a multitude of barriers that prevent them from being able to get, or keep, a job. “We hear it all the time that people on social assistance are just lazy and don’t want to work, but that’s just not true. The majority face many challenges that hinder them from getting or maintaining employment.” For more information on the Salvation Army, its services or how to contribute, go to their website at http://wlsalvationarmy. com .

Branding ourselves Being that it’s spring and the Indoor Rodeo is coming up this weekend, it’s quite fitting that branding has been the hot topic of conversation in the lakecity in recent weeks. But it is not exactly the type of branding ranchers are used to talking about ... and come on, let’s face it, only city people can even make “branding” complicated. Everyone is up in arms after Mayor and Council hired a marketing firm for a pretty penny to come up with a clever way of promoting our fair city. The thought was to attract young working families to our city with the lure of a less-hectic, more-peaceful way of life with easy access to the great outdoors. An affordable, great place

to live, free of the trappings of big city living. A few months later, the slogan “The Republic of Life” was born -- trouble is, some people hate it! Now, after spending thousands of dollars on the project, the City has decided that it will take the matter to public consultation. In other words, they’ll let the local public decide what marketing strategy will work to prompt young families to leave their current homes and settle in Williams Lake. Being a newspaper, we know for a fact that advertising works. So, the City is certainly on the right track to invest money in promoting our area. The real question is, why spend the money with professionals if we were

just going to run a little local “contest” to see who can come up with the best idea anyway? Doesn’t it defeat the whole purpose of the work? The marketing firm must be shaking their heads. Is the City going to only consult with local people who have a marketing degree? No? Well maybe the public can go fill some job vacancies at the hospital too while they’re at it. We already know why we like living here, we don’t need a marketing strategist to tell us -- but other people in other places do. Are we really the right people to know what would grab the attention of over-scheduled, debt-burdened, young city dwellers? And where is our

sense of confidence in the leaders we elected to steer this community in the right direction? Additionally, why do our elected leaders buckle so easy to public pressure? Now that they have agreed to consult with the public, the only way they’re going to get around this one is if they consult with the public -- in places like Kelowna and Vancouver where these prospective families are going to come from! Geez, what a mess. Next thing you know the City is going to waste more time and money consulting with the public on whether we should be allowed to have a few bees and chickens in our backyard, oh wait, they are! Ranchers must sit back and laugh.

Honouring Earth Day This Monday, April 22 is Earth Day. Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is now coordinated globally and is celebrated in more than 192 countries every year. In Canada, we ceremoniously plant trees, give extra talks with children and perhaps take a little extra time

to appreciate our local environments. In Williams Lake, Scout Island is marking the day similarly by hosting events on the Sunday (April 21), before Earth Day. From 10 a.m. to noon, Scout Island’s Family Explorers and Young Naturalists’ Club is inviting the public to dig into the earth to enhance habitat for wildlife by planting a tree. Then at noon until

3 p.m. everyone is welcome to head to the Nature House and meet special guest Beth Bedard, professor of Archaeology at Thompson Rivers University, who will share her stories from travels around the world. Children can also engage in some hands on learning by making an “archaeology sandwich” see how archaeologists study people from the past. Students

will also get the chance to excavate for artifacts in a special junior archaeologist day camp. There are many ways to celebrate our planet Earth, and to make a positive impact every day toward a more sustainable way of life. Please take some time this week to measure your own footprint on our environment and show our kids there are ways we can all make a difference.

The various clubs walked from local grocery stores to the Salvation Army where they gave their donations and had a tour of the food bank.

What a grown-up tantrum looks like Getting older has its advantages. The first time I said “Fifty years ago,” I shocked myself. But as my mind scrolls down the years, a few perspectives have emerged, though it now takes me longer to escape the chair where I first thought of them! One brief muse: “Children can come up with genuine naughtiness singlehandedly.” That may even include a bit of obnoxious pestering, an attempt at temper tantrums, or some other misbehaviour.” I certainly remember

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett coming up with a few wicked actions that seemed pretty original to me at three, or nine, or later . . . But I am wondering . . . are some roots to a child’s naughtiness

found in accepted models of adult conduct? Do we model that it’s OK to sling ultimatums around, refuse to work with the opposition, and stamp our feet uncooperatively? What would a grown up temper tantrum look like, anyway? I can’t remember the last time I saw an adult laying on the ground, kicking and screaming when things didn’t go as planned. When life, home, business and government need modifying, might our so-called ‘adult’ behaviour dem-

onstrate the very actions we forbid our children? Let’s just say a sixyear-old doesn’t want to go to school, so he balks at every step, resisting and obstructing any way he can. If he doesn’t get his way, he may offer negative behaviour until the other side comes around. Six years old, did I say? Perhaps even younger. But how do adults get what they want? Recently, while downtown, I met a number of very friendly persons, all of whom waved at me. Great, I

thought, but the cause troubled me. The placards claimed unfairness, injustice, and gross inequality. But what to do about it - resist and obstruct? Due to disagreement, adults had refused to work, and were holding business and government hostage until their demands were reached. Early on, when unions were formed, children were literally being worked to death. Worker abuse was rampant, and unions originated for the best of motives. But have those

early ideals been lost? Wouldn’t it be best if solutions worked for everyone? Perhaps we have lost sight of the larger landscape, while considering only me, myself, and I. Some things need to be fixed, definitely. But is the penalty for disagreement a childish obstruction, no matter what difficulty that causes? Is it OK for adults to act out younger “no-nos” to get what they want? It’s funny how we tell our children to talk things out. I can’t ever remember

recommending a temper tantrum. There must be a grown-up approach! When life is unfair will we adopt the tactics of a three-year-old, or methods we can be proud of? The three-year-old, and the image in the mirror, need to meet the same standards. Let’s work together toward lasting solutions. Examples are needed - for communities, governments, and kids everywhere. Adult examples, not temper tantrums. LOL@caribooadvisor.com.

LNG and Pipelines will impact pocketbooks Bob Simpson MLA Cariboo North With all the propaganda surrounding LNG and the Enbridge pipeline, it’s easy to be convinced by the Premier’s claim that we could be entering a new era of economic prosperity that would wipe out all our debt and substantially reduce our taxes. However, if these mega projects come to pass, it will more than likely have a negative impact on your pocketbook. First, you’ll be impacted by the direct and indirect subsidies your government will give these companies to make these projects economically viable. The fossil fuel industry lives off subsidies — trillions of dollars in subsidies

each year from governments worldwide, billions here in Canada and B.C. These massive subsidies to some of the world’s most profitable companies take money away from public programs and services. They mean you have to pay more for MSP premiums, insurance deductibles, and other government fees and licenses. Second, most of the jobs associated with these projects will go to Albertans or temporary foreign workers; the Albertans will pay income tax in Alberta and foreign workers will send the bulk of their earnings home rather than spending it in B.C. The rapid and massive exploitation of B.C.’s natural resources

proposed by both the BC Liberals and the BC NDP will mean significantly less return to the B.C. government than if we developed our resources in a more measured way with B.C. workers. You’ll have to pay more for public services or get less from your government. Third, you’ll have to help cover the costs of any catastrophic events that occur as a result of these environmentally risky ventures. Any cleanup costs associated with the inevitable environmental side effects of these projects will be borne not just by the companies responsible, but by government; that is, you and every other taxpayer. Finally, if the companies racing to get oil

and LNG to Asia actually get a higher “Asian premium� price, it just means you’ll pay more for your own resources here at home — that higher Asian market price will raise all fossil fuel consumer costs here, negatively impacting your pocketbook. Instead of continu-

ing to subsidize an unsustainable industry with taxpayer dollars, Canadian citizens need to demand that our federal and provincial governments develop energy self-sufficiency strategies and support the growth and development of renewable energy sources.

South Lakeside Project to proceed this summer The City of Williams Lake announces that the project to widen, repave, and add a pedestrian lane to South Lakeside Drive will be undertaken this spring and summer. The project will be completed without long-term borrowing.

also have leaders. That’s too bad because I would really like to see the two of them tangle face to face, gloves off and just let it rip. Heck, I wouldn’t mind if I even heard a bad word like ‘darn’, but let’s get in on. I understand why Adrian Dix won’t come on alone with Christy because right now he has nothing to gain as the NDP stands taller in the polls. A bad show-

ing against Clark would not help his lead at this time. I have already had calls from two parties asking if they could ‘count on my support.’ I tell them I am one in four British Columbians who have not yet made up my mind. In Williams Lake the Chamber of Commerce is holding a ‘meet and greet’ the candidates on Wednesday, May 1st for Cariboo Chilcotin and Cariboo North. Both North and Cariboo Chilcotin constituency candidates will be in attendance and it gives voters an opportunity to come out to the Tourism Discovery Centre to talk to those politicians seeking a seat in Victoria on May 14th, election day. .

SPRINGFASHION style for your life

A New Season for a New You

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 spring casuals that can be easily mixed and matched and that can be worn often throughout the spring season.

Flap Jack Onesies Sizes for the whole family.

Hairstyles Natural Waves: As well as the super straight trend being big this upcoming season, perfecting those kinks into luscious waves will give you a goregous and effortless look. Grab some mousse and scrunch your hair before blowdrying, or for a messy look, simply tie up your hair in a bun before you sleep.

City explores brand

Angie Mindus photo

A flock of American white pelicans circle over the city yesterday under sunny blue skies. The American white pelican is a red-listed species, and is legally designated as endangered under the British Columbia Wildlife Act. Only one nesting colony occurs in the province, at Stum Lake on the Chilcotin Plateau, however they feed at a number of lakes in the area, such as Williams Lake.

The City of Williams Lake In response to community feedback over a proposed City place brand, Williams Lake City Council will undertake public consultation to allow more opportunity for residents to provide feedback. Council recognizes and appreciates the full gallery of residents who attended the April 9 Council meeting, as well as a large volume of feedback from a diverse group of residents.

The brand is designed to be available not only to the City for marketing and communications initiatives, but also to local employers to use in their marketing efforts to attract workers, which assists in promoting the City. The proposed place brand concept and logo has been recommended by a project advisory committee (including individuals with business, education, government and other diverse backgrounds and local community networks)

as an effective brand concept that reflects the positive position, promise and personality to project to people both inside and outside our community. “The feedback about the brand has been heard,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “Never before have I received feedback from such a diverse group of people. The people of Williams Lake are passionate about our city, and that is good news. The City is always willing to listen, and I

encourage everyone with an interest to participate in the upcoming public consultation. A brand must have community support to move forward, so please make sure your voice is heard.” The schedule for public consultation will be finalized over the coming weeks, and residents will be informed when public session will be held. At the end of public consultation, a report will be prepared for Council’s consideration.

City makes CRD an offer At its meeting April 9, Williams Lake City Council offered an agreement to Cariboo Regional District (CRD) for the provision of rural fringe fire protection services for a five-year term, beginning Jan.1, 2014. The offered agreement covers the original rural fringe fire protection area, and uses a net residential assessment formula for operating and capital costs. In addition, the CRD would pay an annual $31,500 payment towards debt servicing costs for the new fire hall, which represents a reduction in the percentage of those costs the CRD pays from approximately 34% to 7%. This would

result in a total payment of approximately $534,000 per year, based on assessments. The agreement would have a 5-year renewal option. “Council has heard the concerns from residents regarding the debt servicing portion of fire protection costs, and we believe the reduction in this offer is an adequate response to those concerns,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “We believe this contract offer answers the concerns of both the City and the Cariboo Regional District.” The offer was formally presented to the Cariboo Regional District for consideration at the April 12th CRD Board meeting.

RCMP Musical Ride The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride will be performing at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds in Williams Lake this coming summer. The Musical Ride will perform one show on Thursday, July 18th at 6:30 p.m. There will also be other entertainment leading up to the performance. Tickets sales will start May 1, 2013 and they will be able for purchase at Cariboo GM, Margetts Meats, J & E Gifts, Taylor Made cakes and Sweets and the RCMP Detachment office. The tickets are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children 12 and under. Tickets will also be available at the gate prior to the start of the event. The horse stables will be open to the public at no charge from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm on the 18th of July except during the show time. Proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the community. For more information, please contact Robert McIntosh at 250 305-1041 or Sgt. Richard Lebeuf at 250 392-6211.

Getting started on spring cleaning

swinstones swinstonesgranite.com

For homeowners, spring cleaning is one of the annual rites of spring. The return of warmer weather presents the perfect opportunity for homeowners to open the windows, let some fresh air in and tidy up after a few months spent cooped up inside while the weather outside was frightful. But now that spring has arrived, the time to clean up around the house has come. Homeowners about to start on their annual spring cleaning should consider the following before beginning. Get the right tools

The right tools won't necessarily be a hammer and nails, but cleaning products that can make spring cleaning more efficient. Rubber gloves, cleaning products (preferably natural products that are good for the environment) and enough garbage bags to discard a winter's worth of clutter should all be on hand before you begin cleaning. If they're not, you'll likely need to make a trip to the store while cleaning, which can be time-consuming and prolong the process. Take some inventory

Many people have no problem buying new clothes, but they do find it hard to get rid of older items. Part of spring cleaning is tossing old items you no longer use, and that includes clothing. Clothing can take up a significant amount of space, so take some inventory on your wardrobe and decide which items you want to keep and which ones you can afford to discard or even donate. Address the windows If the last several months have been especially cold or snowy, then you might not have looked out the windows in quite some time. Unfortunately, those windows might have accumulated quite the amount of dirt and grime while you were huddled inside. When washing the windows, do so on a cloudy day, as the sun can actually cause streaking. In addition, be mindful of what you're using to wipe down the windows post-cleaning. Microfiber rags typically give windows a

great shine without any streaking. The blinds and drapes will also need to be addressed, as they have likely accumulated some dust over the last few months. Dust the valance and the frame, and wipe the blinds down with a damp cloth. You can also use your vacuum's upholstery and brush attachments to further clean blinds and drapes. Tidy up the bed You likely wash your bed linens regardless of the season. When spring cleaning, toss these linens into the washing machine and don't forget to wash the mattress pads and bed skirting as well. While those items are in the wash, flip all the mattresses in your household. Don't forget the kitchen The kitchen is not immune to clutter, and it's especially easy for items to overstay their welcome in the refrigerator and the kitchen cabinets. Look for old takeout containers in the refrigerator that

Outdoor entertaining areas have always been popular among homeowners. The ability to entertain friends and family or simply relax by yourself is something homeowners cherish, particularly during the warm weather seasons. Finding the

right furniture to match your outdoor area, be it a deck, patio or poolside lounging area, is essential to making the most of this special area of the home. When shopping for outdoor furniture, consider the following. * Weight: Unlike

When spring cleaning, don't forget to clean and reorganize bookshelves. have managed to stick around, and throw these out as well as any items that have passed their expiration dates. While items in the kitchen cabinets might not have an expiration date, it helps to remove them from the pantry and then dust and wipe down the shelves. When doing so, discard any items that no longer seem appetizing. Beat the rugs Area rugs have no doubt collected dirt and dust over the last several months.

Though vacuuming these area rugs might be enough during the year, take advantage of the pleasant weather and take the rugs outside to beat them and rid them of dust and any other particles the vacuum might have missed over the last few months. Empty and clean the bookshelves Bookshelves are one the biggest collectors of dust in many homes. Open the windows in the home and then remove books

from the shelves. Once the books have been removed, dust the shelves and wipe them down with a damp cloth. And don't forget to dust the books and reorganize titles before returning them to their newly cleaned shelves. Spring cleaning is something all homeowners must do to keep their homes healthy and clean. Spring cleaning is annual event at many households, and a few simple strategies can make it go much more smoothly.

furniture inside the home, outdoor furniture will be moved around quite frequently, such as to protect it from inclement weather or changing seasons. As a result, the weight of the furniture bears importance. While you don't want furniture

that's too lightweight and will blow away any time a strong gust of wind comes along, it's a good idea to choose furniture that isn't too heavy. This makes it easier to move should a storm suddenly appear and it won't require the entire household to help move the furniture into and out of the garage when inclement weather arrives. * Comfort: The whole idea behind an outdoor entertaining area is to have a relaxing place to spend time outside. So be sure to choose furniture that's comfortable and can handle the elements. Metal furniture, for example, might be durable, but such furniture can also get very hot if out in the sun. * Versatility: Many homeowners enjoy

changing their home's interior decor from time to time, and it can be just as enjoyable to do the same to a home's exterior decor. That said, look for furniture that can be accented with a variety of accessories, so you can change the look of your outdoor entertaining area easily. * Protection: Protecting exterior furniture from the elements should be a priority. When shopping for outdoor furniture, figure out if protective covering is available or if it will need to be custom made. The latter alternative can be quite expensive, so you might want to consider more generic furniture that comes with standard protective coverings to make it more affordable.

Earth Challenge 2013 Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Classes from three local elementary schools had their knowledge put to the test last week at the first ever Earth Challenge. The event, organized by the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society (CCCS), was the culmination of weeks of teachings at the schools before the students gathered for the challenge, which took place at Thompson Rivers University Friday. “This is really a pilot to see if it works,” said Jenny Howell, a Water Wise instructor. Nesika grade 6 students Seth Kirkbride and Tanvir Vaid spent quite a bit of time with biologist Roy Argue and said they really enjoyed the program. “You learn about the earth and how to take care of it,” said Vaid. In the TRU gymnasium, professionals were on hand representing stations of learning for water, air, nature and waste. Students also

got to spend some time with TRU students and a teacher conducting experiments in the chemistry lab and even had a tour of the school. “We need to teach children from a young age that we are connected to the earth and we need to respect it,” said Howell, noting that city water usage has dropped 20 per cent in the past six years thanks to education and awareness. After a morning filled with learning, student teams from each school – Nesika, Cataline and Chilcotin Road – faced off in a Jeopardy-style contest, with tough questions relating to all the information the students had learned. This Sunday, the Scout Island Nature Centre is hosting Earth Day celebrations throughout the day.

APRIL 12 MEETING CENTRAL CARIBOO ARTS AND CULTURE The Cariboo Regional District Board of Directors received and endorsed the 2013 CCAC Project Grants Recommendations. The CRD has a fiveyear service agreement with the CCAC society to deliver the annual project grant program.  Project Grants of between $300 and $2,000 are available for projects which are new or build creatively on previous work and are  likely to increase participation in arts & culture within the Central Cariboo region (Williams Lake and/or CRD Areas D, E, and F) This year’s grant program will support a variety of diverse projects throughout the service area.   More information can be found at centralcaribooarts.com FUEL MANAGEMENT IN THE SOUTH CARIBOO The CRD will be submitting an application to the UBCM Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative to undertake fuel reduction in approximately 10 hectares in the 108 Greenbelt area.  The funds would also be used to develop a prescription for fuel treatment along the Walker Valley. SUGAR CANE CHURCH ON CRD HERITAGE REGISTER Regional District Board of Directors approved the addition of the Sugar Cane Church on the CRD’s Heritage Register. Constructed in 1895, the Sugar Cane Church is valued as the last example of Cariboo-style Native village church architecture from this era.  The heritage value of the Sugar Cane Church is derived from its continuous use as a church and community centre for the Williams Lake Indian Band since its construction.  It is also valued for its location in the original village square and as a focal point for community cultural & spiritual gatherings.  More information about the church can be found at sugarcanechurch.webs. com The CRD will notify the Minister responsible for Heritage Conservation, so that the property can be added to the provincial heritage registry.

Cycle Club gears up for Peel Out Forget camping on the May long weekend – the Williams Lake Cycling Club and Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium is hosting the fourth annual Williams Lake Peel Out mountain bike festival. The event begins on Saturday, May 18 with

the Fox Mountain Downhill. Riders will see some new features on the course as they race into the finish area above Hamel Drive for the annual BBQ and downhill awards ceremony. On Sunday morning following a pancake breakfast at Bell-E-

Acres, the Westsyde Super Downhill will start at noon. On Sunday night, the Consoritum will host Shred Kelly, a hot new band from the East Kootenay at the Limelight. The live concert was moved to Sunday to combat the hang-overs and

no-shows that have plagued the races in years' past. On Monday, the Williams Lake Cycling Club, Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium and Province of BC will host the Grand Opening of Snakes and Ladders. Shuttles

will be running all afternoon. Registration is open and online at ridethecariboo.ca. The first 70 racers to register will get a free Peel Out T-shirt. For more information visit Red Shreds or contact info@ridethecariboo. ca

Get ready for the Indoor Rodeo Bulls, broncs, cowboys and cowgirls will take centre stage at the Cariboo Memorial Complex this weekend for 23rd annual Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo. The B.C. Rodeo Association sanctioned event runs Friday to Sunday, features 12 rodeo events and showcases more than 200 contestants from B.C., Alberta and Washington State. This year’s opening act will be Young Gunz Trick Riding from Alberta. Local musical group, Skid Marks, will provide entertainment for the Friday

night barn dance. On Saturday, the Quesnel band Rockin’ Chair will perform. Gwen Cyr, treasurer for the Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo Association, says tickets to the event are selling well. Last year the event sold out on each of the three days. “This is the first rodeo of the year so it’s just highly popular. The fact that it’s indoor and everybody is sitting so close to the action and you’re not getting dirty, you’re out of the weather,” she said, adding, “This is the second largest event in Williams Lake

next to the Stampede.” A pancake breakfast will be held on Saturday and Sunday and visitors can expect to see Miss Rodeo Canada along with other local and visiting royalty. Tickets to the rodeo events are available at the association’s office at Boitanio Mall. They can also be purchased at the door.

Things that mar an automotive paint job Most people purchase a car for its looks and performance. However, unless the auto is kept in a garage and never driven, it is impossible to keep it in pristine condition. In many cases, damage to the clear coat or enamel paint on the car is something vehicle owners expect. A car owner who decides he or she wants the car to remain in the best shape possible will have to take an active role in maintenence and damage prevention. One of the key things to remember is to never allow any substance to remain on the paint for too long; otherwise the risk for damage increases. Also, it may be very difficult to clean if the offender is allowed to sit on the paint. Here are some other factors to consider. * UV light: Just as UV light can affect

Washing off harmful substances promptly can reduce the chances of damage to a car's paint job. skin, hair and other parts of the body, it also can affect the paint on a car. UV rays oxidize the paint and cause a white, powdery film to form on the car. Washing the car frequently enough and applying the best quality wax will help keep UV rays from penetrating through the paint. * Over sprays: Life

does not stop to allow cars to drive through, particularly when it comes to construction zones. It's possible for a car to be doused in paint spray, tar, concrete, and other chemicals that are routinely used in construction. Do not allow these substances to harden on the car. Rinse promptly with automotive soap.

Try to avoid construction zones whenever possible. * Rain: Both acid rain and regular rainwater (and other sources of water) can dissolve paint over time. The U.S. Geological Survey has said that water is a universal solvent because it can dissolve more substances than any other liquid.

Did you know? SAVINGS Tire Clearance BRING IT ON

The drive-in movie theater was the brainchild of Richard Hollingshead, Jr., an auto products sales manager at his father's Whiz Auto ™ Products store. Hollingshead wanted to combine his passion for automobiles with his love of films. After testing different parking configurations and imi-

tating weather conditions in his own driveway to simulate the drive-in movie experience, Hollingshead filed for a patent for the drive-In theater. He received the patent on May 16, 1933. The first drive-in was opened on June 6, 1933, in Camden, N.J. The price of admission was $.25 for the car

and each person inside. Drivein theaters peaked in popularity in the 1950s, when there were roughly 5,000 drive-ins operating across the United States and Canada. According to DriveIns.com, currently there are about 365 drive-ins remaining in the United States and 55 in Canada.

Whenever the car becomes wet, it should be dried with a towel or chamois and not allowed to air dry. * Natural substances: Tree sap, bird droppings and splattered insects contain compounds that can erode the paint on a car. Avoid parking under large trees where sap and bird droppings may be prevalent. In terms of bug splatter, try to wash it off as soon as possible to alleviate damage. * Eggs: Oftentimes, rambunctious children think it is funny to egg a car. However, the enzymes and sulfur content in eggs can cause paint and clear coat to dissolve, leaving white spots in the wake of the egg. Because egg can be sticky and very hard to remove once AD MAT dried, it is SHELLS helpful to wash it off as soon as possible. It takes only a AD hours MATforSHELLS few the damage to be permanent.

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 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 addi-

card that rewards you 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 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.

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.

A nice smoke goes with a good rub Grill jockeys and jockettes will tell you that a good rub is one of the secrets to a tasty barbecue. Rubs are a mixture of spices and herbs then are rubbed on meats to enhance the flavor. Barbecue enthusiasts will tell you that a nice smoke goes along with a good rub. The modern method of smoking foods adds a nice flavor and it also tenderizes the meats. I use some alder and put it in a small tin foil pan directly over the heat of the barby. When smoking, the heat range should be in the 200 - 230 degree range. This low heat

used for smoking is just perfect to do ribs for a couple of hours and it gives the natural fibers in the meat time to break down and become tender. Last weekend I made up a rub of some spices I had in the cupboard and with this I covered the ribs with a gener-

ous complete coating. I let them sit in the fridge for about three hours, so the nice spice and herb taste will get happy with the meat. I turned the barbecue to 300 degrees to get the smoke started and after about a half hour, it was turned down to 225 degrees. Put the ribs on an oiled grill and slowly cook for one-and-onehalf hours letting the smoke work its magic on the meat. While the ribs were cooking, I made a neat little sauce to baste ribs. For the sauce I used a couple of tbsps of butter, a 1/4 cup of cream, a dash of seasoned pepper, and

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.

a generous splash of genuine maple syrup. Heat on low and stir often until thickened, then baste the ribs on the barbecue about a half hour before you want them done. This is the kind of dish you can do by committee. You can do the rub for ribs and fridge them the night before your dinner. Get someone to start the barbecue and heat it up to 300 degrees, so the smoke will start, then put the ribs on a oiled grill and start cooking them at 5 o’clock. When you get home from work at six the tasty ribs will almost be done Make

the sauce the night before or when you first get home then have some warm body put it on the meat, one half hour before done. Ken’s Rib Rub (say that quickly five times!!) 2 tbsp paprika 1 tsp oregano 2 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp seasoned pepper 1 tsp seasoned sea salt dash of chilli powder Mix all ingredients together and massage into ribs. Smoke ribs with a spicy rub topped off with a maple syrup sauce. What a great way to end a day. Bye for now and Gooood Cooking

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.
