Grade One student Seth Elliott works with his Reading Recovery teacher Lori Kelly during his half hour one on on lesson Monday morning. This week is Literacy Week - see page 5 for more on programs offered at the Cariboo Regional District Library - WL Branch.

Reading Recovery a great program to improve literacy Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor It’s not everyday you get to see a light bulb go on in a child’s mind, that ‘ah ha’ moment when something just clicks, but if you are a Reading Recovery teacher, you just may witness that moment every day.

“I really like when I make the connection with the child, and to be able see the difference (Reading Recovery) makes,” said Lori Kelly. Kelly is the coordinator for Reading Recovery and Reading Strategies Program in School District 27. She

says she has the opportunity everyday to see the little lights go on and help her students get past their confusions when it comes to learning to read. “Reading Recovery works with children in Grade One who are having difficulties with literacy,” said Kelly.

“Whatever it may be they are missing some of the pieces to get them going.” Kelly said the program is a short-term, early intervention that is a supplement to the classroom program, and typically students spend anywhere from 12 to 20 weeks work-

ing one-on-one with a Reading Recovery teacher for 30 minutes a day. “A key component is that there is a plan for each student after the program,” said Kelly. “The plan is made with the classroom teacher, and the students are monitored

Survivors pitch tent after plane crash Angie Mindus Caribo Advisor All four people on board a small private plane escaped with what is being described as only minor injuries after they crashed in the Big Creek Provincial Park area Sunday during gusty winds. According to the RCMP, the Cessna 210 was flying at about 500 feet above the ground when it was hit hard by a downward draft, leaving little time for the pilot to correct. The story began to

unfold Sunday morning when the Williams Lake RCMP were notified of an overdue aircraft from the Springhouse Airstrip. The plane had departed just before 8:30 a.m. and was expected back at the airstrip in the early afternoon for refueling. The aircraft’s crew, contractors working on a moose count survey for the local ministry, were being flight followed by the Cariboo Fire Centre when they did not check in via

radio as required. Shortly thereafter, according to the RCMP, the aircraft’s beacon was reported to be relaying an intermittent signal indicating a hard landing or a crash. The Williams Lake Fire Centre and National Defense dispatched resources to the area, including a Buffalo aircraft out of Comox, in an attempt to locate the aircraft. At 1:40 p.m. an update was received from National Defense rescue personnel that

the aircraft had been located near Mt. Tom in the park, about 45 kilometres south of Hanceville off Highway 20. Sources say rescuers arrived to find the pilot and crew had pitched a tent and were inside of it, caring for the most badly injured of the four as they awaited rescue. The victims were taken from the crash site to Cariboo Memorial Hospital for treatment. It is expected the Transportation Safety

Local offender in trouble in Kelowna Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A young man well known to Williams Lake RCMP is making a name for himself with the Kelowna police. Charges have been laid against Kurtis Billy in connection with a stolen vehicle and police pursuit Sat., Jan. 14 that ended in a crash. According to Const. Kris Clark, Kelowna police have recommended charges of possession of stolen property, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, breach of a recognizance, possession of break and enter instruments and obstructing a peace officer against Billy. The charges stem from an incident in the early morning hours of Jan. 14 when an officer observed a driver driving through a stop sign and red light. It is alleged Billy was the driver and fled from police, causing a brief chase which soon ended when the driver struck a telephone pole. Clark said police discovered the vehicle involved in the incident, a 1997 dodge

pick up, was reported stolen two days prior in West Kelowna. Billy was taken to hospital with injuries following the crash, and a warrant was granted later that day for his arrest upon his hospital release. Sgt. Rick LeBeuf of the Williams Lake RCMP confirmed that Billy is well known to Williams Lake police. During previous court cases it has been discussed that Billy is in fact one of the community’s top ten prolific offenders listed in the Prolific Offender Program (POP) in Williams Lake. That program, which has been said to be partly responsible for the city’s declining crime stats, identifies offenders to offer them both extra support and access to programs as well as targets them for extra police monitoring. “We keep an eye on all the people on the Prolific Offender List,”

LeBeuf said, discussing the program. “As a group we want these offenders to get the help they need and to change their lifestyles. Sometimes when they are unwilling to get the assistance they need, the only avenue we have to monitor them is through enforcement.”

It was unknown at press time whether Billy was released from hospital yet. LeBeuf said they do not keep tabs on offenders when they leave the community, pointing out that he’s hopeful when an offender leaves the community it could be to make a fresh start.

Board will be conducting an investigation to determine the official cause of the crash. Management at the local Ministry of Natural Resources were unavailable for comment as to whether the ministry will continue with its animal counting contracts in light of the crash, however new moose numbers were highly anticipated with rumours of low population numbers due to wolf predation.

Travel the world at the library’s Armchair Travels Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Ever wish you could just take off on a trip to far away places at the drop of a hat? Well that may be tricky, but for a few hours every Thursday for the next five weeks Armchair Travels may be the next best thing. Armchair Travels is held at the library and includes a presentation from a member or members of the community who have traveled to far away places and want to share that with others. For more than 10 years, organizers have been searching and tracking down presenters, and community

members have been coming out in full force to be transported away through pictures and commentary. Pam Hedley-Smith has been helping put together this event for the past seven years, and before her there was Val Biffert, and before her Lil Mack started the program at the old library location in an effort to get people to come out to the library, which it did. “If you give people something to come out to, they’ll come out,” said Hedley-Smith. “Plus it’s an easy way for people to travel.” She said the event is planned during winter months because it’s a

dull time of the year and it gives people a fun reason to get out of the house. “We try to have a good balanced program,” said HedleySmith. “Essentially people are lifetime learners – I often go home and tell my husband all the wonderful things I learned (at these presentations).” Over the years, Armchair travelers have experienced a wide range of countries, and this year is no different with presenters set to talk about trips to Rwanda, Japan, Scotland and Ireland and Bermuda, as well as a special presentation by someone who par-

ticipated in walking the Camino de Santiago. First up this year was Rita Seibert who went on a trip of a lifetime in 2005, and has shared her presentation before but so many people showed up some were turned away. Seibert and her husband Karl went on a trip ‘Around the World’ in 28 days and saw many amazing things as they toured over 10 countries. The Seiberts went to Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Dubai, Egypt, Kenya, India, Czech Republic, and Iceland all aboard a private jet and in first class hotels. “I showed it two

years ago and there was a lot of interest (so we) wanted to do it again,” said Seibert. She said she loves to travel, so when her husband saw an ad for the ‘Around the World’ tour and asked if she would be interested she of course said yes. “It was wonderful and I would do it all over again,” she said. “I loved seeing the animals in Africa – it was incredible.” For Seibert’s second showing the program room was filled almost to capacity, but due to technical difficulties the presentation had to be moved to Friday night, which many people came out again to see

Seibert’s presentation. Hedley-Smith said lots of people who come out to the presentations are repeats, and even in the cold weather people come out. “We heard about the event last year and decided to come out,” said armchair traveller Jane Folka. “It’s enjoyable to see the world through other people’s eyes.” Folka also said it’s a nice evening out where sometimes they see familiar faces and other times meet new people. “The evening gives people the chance to socialize and meet new people,” said HedleySmith. So if you would

Library reading programs support literacy Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The Williams Lake Library offers lakecity residents everything from books, to computers, audio books, and a range of programs for children. Tracey Dunlop is the Branch Assistant, and takes care of all the children’s programs. Throughout the week the library has a number of free programs available to children from birth up to 11-years-old. For the younger ones, Dunlop leads two story times a week: one for youngsters up to six year olds that just involves a story on Tuesday mornings, and one for three to six year olds that includes a craft as well as a story on Friday mornings. Last week, the three to six year olds were treated to a Chinese New Year themed session complete with a dragon puppet and a dragon mask the children were able to colour. New to the library is the parent hour,

She said her twins attend story time at the Library on Friday mornings, and her older daughter felt left out. “I wanted to make it fun to come to the library,” said Elefson. “We are trying to get the kids excited about their books.” Elefson said there were story times for the younger children and

for children in Grades 4 to 7, but there was nothing for the ones in between, which is where her daughter who is Grade 1 fit in. Elefson said so far she has decided on Robert Munsch stories, as well as she had educational board games for the children to play. “We found we couldn’t just sit and read them stories for an hour, we had to make it

After-school art for children Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor For the little artist in your family, look no further than Rachel Walker’s afterschool art classes being offered at the Station House Gallery. “The classes are university classes downsized to a child’s ability,” says Walker. “The kids love it, it’s stimulating and they learn a lot.” Walker says in our society where we are very tech savvy and have information given to us, it’s a great idea to partake in activities which helps to develop the creative side of the brain. “In the class, the kids learn the fundamentals of painting and how to see things like an artist,” said Walker. “And how light and shadow plays into how you draw and paint.” Walker is offering two classes on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s, one from 2:30-3:30 p.m. and one from 3:304:30 p.m. for children

ages six and up, and she said she tries to keep the classes separated for age and ability. Walker says she also has a class on Tuesdays at 4:40-5:30 that is open to adults. The classes are held upstairs in the Station House Gallery, which Walker says gives participates and their parents the chance to have

fun,” said Elefson. “So the kids are learning,

Mill explosion touches us all People from across B.C. were shocked and saddened by the news last weekend of the explosion and fire at the Babine Forest Products mill outside of Burns Lake. The fire, which destroyed the sawmill, sent 18 workers to hospitals in Burns Lake, Prince George, Vancouver and Edmonton, some suffering severe burns. The small volunteer fire department, many of whom also worked at the mill, responded immediately and fought the fire the best they could throughout

the night Friday night in -20 degrees weather while nearby hospital staff at the 3,200 population community leapt into action to undoubtedly save lives. Two bodies have been found in the wreckage this week, but have not been identified yet. Two workers have been missing since the fire. Williams Lake has many families and businesses who are dependent on our local mills for their safety and their livelihood. Though we are not in their shoes, we can all empathize with

the tragedy at Burns Lake. The community will not only be facing personal hardships to recover from the deaths and injuries but will also bare the economic uncertainty of losing their largest employer. It is unknown now, is will likely remain unknown for some time, whether the mill will be rebuilt. Right now anger is the emotion being vented as mill executives visit the community this week; unable to answer questions surrounding worker safety in the days and hours lead-

ing up to the violent explosion. In this time of government cutbacks, the incident certainly has brought to light the need to invest in and keep our local hospitals our top priority. One burns Lake resident said if it weren’t for their little hospital and staff they wouldn’t know where they’d have been last Friday night, and their hospital is currently being reviewed for potential changes/cutbacks. But maybe not now. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Burns Lake.

Hooray for fast food salad Has it become the in thing to put down fast food? There was a news report on TV recently where parents were condemning McDonald’s and suggesting they shouldn’t be allowed to have their advertising aimed at children. Apparently the old golden M is too recognizable and kids will just want to eat there every chance they get. Of course they do, but isn’t that why kids have parents? Shouldn’t parents be reasonable and regulate how often

their children eat fast food? And besides, McDonald’s has certainly done their part since the whole “Supersize Me” fiasco. In fact, I was traveling out-of-town recently and had no choice but to eat fast food. Reluctantly I steered toward the drivethrough at McDonald’s and was surprised to be greeted by pictures of beautiful salads, wraps and fresh fruit on the menu. Now, I’m usually of the mind that if I eat in

a restaurant I’m going to go for it and eat everything I don’t eat at home; french fries, gravy, burgers. You know, the bad stuff. I fought off that urge though and selected a lovely Thai Chicken Salad. I couldn’t have been happier with the meal, the service and the price. I was so happy I had my next meal there too, a nice wrap, and that got me thinking. We should be thankful to these businesses who are knocking themselves out to

provide us, the fickle public, with healthy, fast food while still giving us our traditional favorites. Another business that provides warm healthy meals for those of us in wheels is Tim Hortons. They have great soups and sandwiches at reasonable prices and are always stepping up to support hockey, community programs and the like. So, I think I’m going to go against the grain, against all the nay-sayers and just say it, I like McDonald’s.

A few tips to help beat the winter blues Couldn’t help it - I just had to look! The photo caption proclaimed, “Cute couple takes same antidepressant!” What does depressed look like? Is there a difference between life’s ups and downs and the big D? Is ‘depression’ just another word for sadness or a bad mood? Most of all, can I lessen my number of ‘blue’ days? Depression and its heavy human cost is much in the news. The 400% rise in antidepressant use is alarming! More than 10% of Americans are said to be on anti-depressants. Depression also carries an increased risk

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett of osteoporosis, stroke, and other conditions. In the simplest terms, depression is a warning that the brain is not functioning at its best. At times, each of us feels empty or sad. But when several criteria appear in a cluster and persist, there may

be a serious issue. To take this simplified test, reflect over a two-week period and check the items that apply: 1. Deep sadness or feelings of emptiness; feeling down or hopeless. 2. Decreased interest or pleasure in nearly all activities. 3. Decrease or increase in appetite; or unusual loss or gain of weight. 4. Sleep habits have changed; sleeping more or less than usual. 5. Others (or you) have noticed your physical movements or speech have been slower than normal, or that you have more agi-

tation or irritation with yourself or others. 6. Experiencing fatigue or loss of energy; feeling tired often. 7. Experiencing feelings of worthlessness, inappropriate guilt, or that you are a failure. 8. Decrease in ability to think or concentrate on common tasks or difficulty making good decisions. 9. Thinking about death often, or considering harming yourself or others.* When several of these symptoms are present during the same 2-week period, including item 1 or 2, evaluation is encour-

aged. If you need help quickly, please go to the emergency room or call the crisis line at 3988224. Or you may call the Canadian Mental Health Association at 398-8220. There are many reasons for hope if one is depressed! Even persons with depression in their family can overcome the big D! Small lifestyle tweaks can help a surprisingly high percentage of sufferers stay out of depression and off medication. Best of all, because our brains change continuously they can change for the better. To jumpstart the brain and lessen the

‘winter blues,’ research recommends: 1. A brisk earlymorning walk in sunshine and fresh air. 2. Add to the diet some ground flax (a non-mercury source of omega-3), and a few pumpkin seeds for tryptophan. 3. Skip self-sabotage, such as saying “I’ll NEVER get it right!” 4. Have plenty of fresh fruit, veggies, whole grains, legumes, on my plate. (P-L-A-N-T-S, the answer from the last column!) But back to the couple who shared anti-depressants. Are their children destined

to be depressed all their lives? Must they be stuck in ‘talk therapy’ forever? Happily, the facts answer “No!” “The Way Out” a depression recovery seminar for individuals or caretakers (We each care for someone very important!) is planned for winter 2013. To request advance information, please email LOL@CaribooAdvisor. com. Until then, I wish you a minimum of ‘blues’, and plenty of days ‘in the pink’!

Is more jail time the answer for mean teens? Last year in Vancouver a 16-yearold and two of his friends stomped a city bus driver so badly, apparently he will never work again. The teenager got one year of probation and some community work and was not allowed drunk on the bus again .... heck, he’s only 16 and should not be drunk in public anyhow. Some people say the kid got off way too easy for a brutal mindless beating . They would say the punishment should meet the

crime and he should get a couple of years, at least, in jail. Those who would advocate for a soft sentence because he was only a teenager say there would be no hope for the youth if he

went to jail. He would learn to be a criminal, where he would then be sucked into the system and by the time he was let back into society he would put what he had learned in prison to good use. What if we gave him a couple of weeks in a jail, just to show him or her what it might be like to have to spend a couple of years in the clink for mindlessly stomping a city bus driver? Some part of his sentencing would include anger management, he should also go through a program

to determine if there may be any other issues that would lead a young dude to stomp a bus driver so severely. That is not a normal teen behaviour. We have some families in Williams Lake who have gone through horrible situations where their son, daughter or sibling has been killed by a drunk driver and the sentencing from the Provincial Judge was a joke. Ask these folks if they thought the term in jail was long enough. When I talked to one mother and father who

Over the last few years the City of Williams Lake has made several improvements to parking in the Downtown Core. These improvements include the upgrades of existing parking lots, the purchase of new parking lots, and additional handicap parking spaces and curb letdowns. In 2011 reconstruction on Oliver Street saw the addition of new curb letdowns at the intersections of 3rd, 2nd, and1st Avenues. These new letdowns have improved accessibility in the downtown. In addition to this, the City installed curb letdowns in some of its regular parking spaces along Oliver Street. Although these additional letdowns are not located in designated handicap parking spaces they do provide easier access to the sidewalk. When accessing sidewalks from vehicles or on foot the City would like to remind everyone that caution should be exercised. The City would like to also remind citizens that when parking in a designated handicap parking space that an ofcial SPARC BC placard must be visible and hanging from the mirror of the vehicle. Residents may obtain a SPARC BC placard through their medical doctor. For further information on parking in the downtown core, please contact the City of Williams Lakes Bylaw division at 250-392-2311.


It is any unauthorized drawing, mural, printing or writing which is scribbled, scratched, sprayed, painted, or similarly placed directly on any surface by means of paint, ink, or other substance or by chisel, hammer, stone or other device. One of the forms of grafti in Williams Lake is “tagging”. “Tagging” is a simple mark of grafti, which are the tagger’s initials, symbol or alias. How does grafti affect our community? Grafti sends out a message that we could be losing control of our neighborhoods and it should be removed quickly, so we are not giving this message. When we allow grafti to remain in our neighborhoods, it is initiating an open invitation for more littering, loitering and grafti. This may also lead to an increase in other crimes and acts of violence.

Victims of grafti and vandalism. Whether the target is private or public properties, grafti affects the entire community. This vandalism costs BC communities hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in painting and removal costs. The money allocated to grafti takes away other valuable community initiatives and programs. What steps is the City of Williams Lake taking to reduce grafti?

The City of Williams Lake operates a City web page that allows residents to report grafti on public or private property. City of Williams Lake residents are encouraged to contact the City with the location and details of the grafti. The City webpage: under the blue tab “I want to” report grafti. What can I do to prevent grafti? There are steps that property owners can take to reduce their susceptibility to grafti. • Increase lighting around your property, add motion sensor lighting to ensure your property appears occupied at all times • Check your property to see if you have any walls or fences that are susceptible to grafti because it is important to eliminate “blank canvases” on your property. Planting vegetation such as thorny bushes or ivy in front of vulnerable walls. •Remove structures that will enable access to a second storey, these may include ladders or dumpsters. Second level walls allow for high visibility of grafti. •Cover walls with protective anti-grafti coatings. This is recommended for surfaces that cannot be painted over such as, stucco or brick. Can I clean up grafti on my own? It is the responsibility of the property owner to remove the grafti on their own property. The removal of grafti is encouraged right away as this will reduce the opportunity for the offenders to receive notoriety for their crime. If you are interested in assisting with grafti removal from another person’s property you have to acquire permission from that property owner before you can remove the grafti. What are some tips for removing grafti? Paint over grafti with latex paint. Keep an extra gallon of paint on hand so the grafti can be removed promptly. Apply a primer coat to the surface before painting the grafti so it doesn’t “bleed” through the paint once it is applied. It is recommended to apply two coats of latex paint. On concrete surfaces consider chemical solvents to remove the grafti rather than painting on the surface. How can we stop grafti? RECOGNIZE grafti is a crime! Don’t become immune to the presence of grafti; recognize that it is not acceptable to allow grafti to become part of the urban landscape. REPORT grafti on all public or private property to the City of Williams Lake web site at . This is important for two reasons: 1.The appropriate steps can be taken for quick removal. 2. Tracking of grafti incidents is necessary in order to determine patterns of vandalism. If you witness an act of grafti in progress contact the RCMP immediately. REMOVE grafti as quickly as possible after it appears (within 78 hours). Grafti vandals generally seek recognition and attention from their peers, by removing tags quickly and consistently, offenders are not able to receive the desired notoriety. If grafti is not removed, this may lead to additional grafti on or nearby the original site.

Reading programs instill a greater sense of self worth LITERACY Continued from Page 1 Reading Recovery was developed by Marie Clay in New Zealand in the 1970’s, and was first

introduced in Canada in 1987. Kelly said Clay referred to the literacy difficulties of children as the “tangled knots of tiny tots.”

“It’s a nice way to put it - they have these little tangles, or little confusions and all we need to do is find ways to untangle them.” According to Kelly, the goal of the program is to give the students independence and go back into the classroom and blend into the average. The Reading Recovery program has been in place in the district since 1996, and Kelly said almost every elementary school in SD 27 has Reading Recovery. Currently Kelly works one-on-one with four students at Nesika Elementary, as well as supporting classroom programs and providing in service for Reading Recovery teachers. Seth Elliott is a Grade One student currently in Reading Recovery. His mom, Tania

Elliot, had pushed for him to be in Reading Recovery since kindergarten. “We all decided he really needed the help,” said Elliot. “He hardly even knew the alphabet at the beginning of the school year.” Seth was assessed at the end of kindergarten, and again at the beginning of Grade One and was put in the Reading Recovery program in September. He now sees Mrs. Kelly almost every day for a half hour one on one lesson. Seth said he looks forward to seeing Mrs. Kelly at school, and that reading is fun. “My favorite part is moving the letters on the board really fast,” said Seth. His half hour with Kelly includes 10 minutes of warm-up reading (reading familiar books) and word work with letter magnets on a board, 10 minutes of writing and 10 minutes of problem solving a new book. According to Kelly, every student’s lesson is split into the same components, but the books and pace are suited to the individual student. Kelly carefully selects

also said there has been lots of communication between her and Kelly, which has really helped Seth with his progress. “I’ve also learned along with him – I find myself noticing punctuation more because when he reads he really shows it in his voice shouting when there is an exclamation mark or all capitals,” said Elliott. “And by communicating with Mrs. Kelly, I’ve learned to say ‘say it slowly’ instead of ‘sound it out’ and how pointing at his words as he reads was slowing him down.” Kelly said Seth’s progress has been wonderful and he never says anything is too hard or that he doesn’t want to work at it. Kelly said the program isn’t just about letters, sounds or word recognition (item knowledge) but rather everything working together for the student. “He has come leaps and bounds since September,” said Kelly. “It’s really coming together for him.”

New friends and new foods not so scary after all Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor After consulting with my sister about the sort of vegetarian dish I could make and serve at the Vegetarian potluck dinner I had decided to attend last weekend, I was ready to try new dishes and meet new people. My diet has included meat less and less, and more of rice and veggies, so when the idea of going to the potluck dinner came up I was more than open to try it out, with one problem – what to bring. Thanks to my sister who is a modern day Betty Crocker, we put together a quick artichoke dip (a thousand thank-yous to my sister for not only helping me out on the dish but tagging along for the dinner). As we drove up to the Cariboo Lifestyle Centre (which is located up on Woodland Drive) and parked, we both had a moment where we would have liked just to have gone home but we figured we already had made the dip and drove here so we might as well just go in. And we were glad that we did, first of all we greeted very warmly

There were close to 20 people that attended the second Vegetarian Supper Club's potluck dinner Sunday night, Eva Windcliff along with her husband Dustan and son David fill their plates with all the delicious looking food. by Gabi Weiand who made us feel more than welcome as we entered the room uneasily with our hopefully vegetarian-enough dish. When Brittani and were being greeting and

It’s the biggest sale of the year and the staff are taking some well deserved relaxation time to prepare for the LARGEST 1 DAY SALE!

given instructions on where to put our dish, the rest of the group of about 20 were starting a fun quiz aimed to get people engaged and interacting with others at the table.

Brittani and I joined the table closest to where we were standing and introduced ourselves to the two people sitting there already, Mary Wu and Nathan Davis, working away on the quiz that involved matching bags of grains to the name of that grain. Mary and Nathan had already figured out their guesses for the quiz, and we added our thoughts and guesses, ultimately we ended up in last place out of the tables but we had fun trying. As we worked on the quiz and waited our turn for the buffet of wonderful vegetarian dishes, we engaged in small talk and learned how small of a town Williams Lake really is. As soon as I shared that I was the reported at the Cariboo Advisor, Mary said, “Oh you must have replaced my daughter.” As it turns out, Mary is Candace Wu’s (the Cariboo Advisor’s previous reporter) mother, and I use to go to elementary school with her other daughter, Alexandra. The other person at our table was Nathan, and it turns out he is

friend’s with Angie (my editor). Both Mary and Nathan said they found out about the vegetarians potluck in the newspaper and decided to try it out. Both also agreed that there are lots of choices with vegetables when it comes to cooking, which was evident by the amazing spread of food we were about to eat. After a few minutes of waiting, we got in line to get our food, and as we took a look at all the dishes brought there were a large variety of different salads, my favourite being the broccoli salad – it all looked and tasted delicious.

One of the more unique items in the spread was a walnut rice loaf, which both my sister and I tried along with the others at our table The walnut rice loaf was such a hit at our table, Gabi made sure all of our emails were given to the cook, which I am eagerly awaiting the recipe for. Another favourite of mine was more on the sweet side – a pear cream, which was great on fruit and we were told it was also great on waffles and pancakes. I defiantly grabbed a copy of that recipe. After dinner, Pastor Cameron Johnston led a discussion about healthy

lifestyles and all the different aspects that make up a healthy lifestyle. I learned that although I thought I led a relatively healthy lifestyle after I took a quick quiz I only scored a six out 12. In the end I learned things I can do to make my lifestyle just a little healthier – starting with adjusting my diet and regulating my meals. The best part of the night was overhearing people say how good the artichoke dip was – go me! (And of course Brittani). Both of us are looking forward to the next Vegetarian Potluck, which is set to take place sometime in February.

Williams Lake Minor Hockey Initiation B coaches Zach Straza, Dave Carnes and Mike Rife keep their young players in line and having fun during regular Monday night practise. The volunteer coaches have been working with their players on skating and stick skills at least two times per week since October at the Cariboo Memorial Complex.

Program exposes youth to winter sports Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The City of Williams Lake Recreation Department is announcing a brand new program launching in February geared towards children who want to learn how to enjoy winter and all the sports that comes with it. Everything from winter survival skills, curling, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, archery, snowshoe-

ing and even a biathlon with marksmanship is being offered in the XploreSportz program. “We want to try and give youth a sample of a variety of sports they may not be able to try otherwise,” said Recreation Programmer, Irene Berns. The City of Williams Lake was chosen by PacificSport Northern BC to receive BC Sport Participation funding

from the Government of Canada and the Province of BC, which makes the program very affordable. Berns said the complex found out they had received the grant at the end of 2011, and now are looking forward to giving children age 9-12 the opportunity to try seven winter sports and learn about snow safety. “We chose (sports) based on what’s available in our community,

and so we can encourage memberships afterwards into local clubs,” said Berns. The fee to register in the XploreSportz program is $75, and includes all transportation, equipment rentals, and coaching. According to Berns, on the very first day of the program the children will learn all about the essentials of winter outdoor safety through the SNOWSMART program. 

After lunch on the first day, the group will be transported to the local curling rink to learn all about the sport of curling. The second activity will take the participants for a full day of skiing at Mount Timothy, on a Pro-D Day February 10, where they will be enrolled in the Learn to Ski program and have an opportunity to practice their SNOWSMART skills

and skiing abilities. “A lot of kids don’t know how to enjoy winter, so maybe this a way that they can really get excited about snow falling, and cold weather ,” said Berns. “We’re hoping (this program) will get them excited about getting outdoors in the winter and be more active.” Other activities planned include a day at Bull Mountain and another at the Rod and Gun Club where the

children will try their hand at archery and snowshoeing. Space in the program is limited due to transportation seating, program costs and materials. Berns expects spaces to fill up fast, so she encourages those interested to register early – the final day to register is Jan 31. For more information or to register call the complex 250-3987665.

Gymnast sets sights on Winter Games

Courtney Taylor Photo

Andrew Bettle is going to the BC Winter Games in Vernon, on Feb. 25 and 26 to compete in mens gymnasts. Here he works on the high bar during a training session Friday afternoon. Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The B.C. Winter Games are coming up at the end of February, and there are local young athletes who are going to make the trip to Vernon to compete in their sport – one of which is local 14-yearold Andrew Bettle. Bettle is a local gymnast who has been training at the Williams Lake Gymnastics Club since

he was eight, and his explanation on why he competes in gymnastics is pretty simple. “I just couldn’t think of another sport to do so I came and tried gymnastics.” During the B.C. Winter Games, Bettle will compete in all six gymnastic events, which includes floor, high bar, parallel bars, vault, rings and pommel. “I am most looking

forward to (competing) in the vault – it’s my favourite,” said Bettle. “The floor is my least favourite.” In Zone 8, which is the northern zone spanning from Prince George to 100 Mile House, there were eight spots for male gymnasts, and since there is only one other from Prince George going, Bettle didn’t need to qualify and this will be his first big meet of the year. “Men’s gymnastics in B.C. isn’t booming with boys, but its getting there,” said Bettle’s coach, Michael Stinson. Bettle has progressed from a young, new gymnast with little to no skills to a level three competitive gymnast who is learning new skills all the time. As a gymnast, Bettle said the two most important basic skills are strength and flexibility. He said he is not all that flexible, which is why he prefers events where he can use his strength. “He is a very strong kid,” said Stinson. “Half of time here is spent on pure muscle building.” Stinson said Bettle and the other boys train nine hours a week, and yet they still tend to do fairly well against other gymnasts who spend 11-12 hours more training a week. “They have limited time so they have to work their butts off,” said Stinson. “It takes a lot of dedication for them to be here.” And Stinson knows from experience what Bettle is going to be up against at the B.C.

Andrew's coach, Mike Stinson, will be joining him in Vernon for the BC Winter Games. Winter Games, he himself was a gymnast as a child and competed at the B.C. Winter Games quite a few times. “I was a high level gymnast as a kid,” said Stinson. “And now I love coaching – I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t.” Bettle has nothing but good things to say about Stinson, who has been his coach on and off since he started six years ago. “He is awesome, and I learn lots from him.” Stinson will be the chaperone/coach for the Zone 8 boy’s gymnasts, and he said it’s a first for him but he’s looking forward to it. As for getting Bettle ready for the B.C. Winter Games, Stinson said as a level three gymnast Bettle gets to decide on his routines so he is simply giving guidelines and limits as well as suggestions. “We’ve had to change his training quite a bit in the last few weeks since he hurt his tailbone over winter break,” said Stinson. “It really

impacted what he could do, but he has healed faster than we thought and he was back vaulting this week.” Bettle said he is really looking forward to meeting other athletes his age in the same sport at the B.C. Winter Games, and hopes to compete to the best of his ability. “We’re hoping (he does) pretty good,” said Stinson.

UNDERWORLD AWAKENING Vampire warrioress Selene (Kate Beckinsale) has been held captive by humans for the past twelve years but upon escaping, she finds herself in a strikingly different world from the one she left. Humans have discovered the existence of vampires and lycans and are engaging in a vengeful mission to eradicate all traces of both immortal species. Selene must now lead her people in the epic battle against humankind.

NEW VIDEO RELEASES REAL STEEL A gritty, whiteknuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hitech. Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) is a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Last Week’s Answers

You may have difficulties with someone who lives with you. Your determination and stamina will make your work look flaw less and effortless. Emotional relationships will be plentiful if you attend group activities. You can find out important information if you listen to friends and relatives. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

Gramma’s cooking instills lifelong love of soups When it is cold outside I liked to stay inside, keeping warm and writing cooking columns. I also like to have four or five warm, flavourful cups of warm tea. Some nice porridge to start the day and a warm cozy soup for dinner is a pretty good way to get rid of the cold winter blues. Making soup is one of the most simple ways of cooking and it has been around since we started walking upright. I can remember watching my Grandmother make day she would put parsnips in the pot and next day carrots would go into

the broth. Everyday it would be something a little different and it always tasted comfortable on a cold winter day. A lot of the soup ingredients came from Gramma’s garden and everything was made from scratch. An old skinny chicken sitting in water and some vegeta-

bles would make a nice soup base. The chicken meat was used as part of another meal. For someone who has never cooked before, like young children, making soup is as easy as it gets. Who knows, if you get a person who has not cooked, maybe doing a soup would lead them on to other culinary adventures. Here is an easy soup to make, and one that is sure to make your stomach happy. Cream of Reuben Soup Six cups chicken broth Three-quarters pound corned beef brisket -cooked, chopped One (8 oz) can sauerkraut -- drained and

chopped. One large carrot -grated One-half cup of chopped onion Two cloves garlic -minced One-half teaspoon dried thyme One-quarter teaspoon ground white pepper One-quarter teaspoon dried tarragon One bay leaf Three tablespoons cornstarch One-third cup water Two cups shredded Swiss cheese One cup whipping cream Rye bread cubes, toasted Combine first 10 ingredients in a large,

Get ready to do some fancy footwork when it comes to taking care of your financial situation. Avoid any over indulgences. Romance appears. Be supportive in order to avoid confrontations. Your lucky day this week will be Sunday.

heavy pot; bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Combine cornstarch and water, stirring until smooth; stir mixture into soup. Bring to a boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add shredded cheese and whipping cream, stirring until cheese melts. Top each serving with toasted rye bread cubes. This should be enough soup to feed at least four or five hungry people. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

Dealing with in-laws or relatives will not be in your best interest. You could find yourself having problems with coworkers and employers. Don’t let someone you work with put words in your mouth. You can meet potential new mates if you socialize with friends. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday. Be aware that you don’t get anything for nothing. Entertain those who can provide you with valuable information and knowledge. Travel will result in new romantic attractions. Disputes on the home front may be hard to avoid. Your lucky day this week will be Thursday. Don’t cause a scene, but when you get home let your partner know how you feel and why. Try a barbecue or a day at the beach. Try not to overspend on friends or family. You can make money through your own creative efforts. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

You can win if you’re open and up front with your boss. Unexpected bills will leave you a little short. You may cause a fuss if you come on too strongly in public. Your communication skills are at an all-time high. Your lucky day this week will be Friday. Secret affairs will only lead to deception. Do yourself a favor and leave your plastic at home. Work at home if at all possible. Avoid being overly opinionated or you will alienate friends. Your ideas may be good, but they aren’t necessarily right for everyone. Your lucky day this week will be Friday. Escapist tendencies may lead to overindulgence. Avoid lending or borrowing. You will easily capture the interest of those you talk to. You’d be wise to control your spending so your debts don’t get out of hand. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.
