All bundled up, Evan McMath, Melissa Pinchbeck, 4, and Isabelle McMath,4, eargerly await Santa Claus at the Santa Claus parade Friday night. Despite the chilly -12 weather, many families bundled up and came out for the parade and Winter Lights celebrations at Spirit Square.

Familiar faces re-elected to lead lakecity Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor By a wide margin Williams Lake residents chose to re-elect Kerry Cook for a second term, but that doesn’t mean the mayor is taking the support lightly. “I believe it was a deci-

sive vote but I’m also aware I only got 50 per cent of the vote,” Cook said yesterday. “We will be reaching out to those community individuals and businesses who didn’t support me in the election to see how we can move forward together.” In an incredible turn of

events, Cook and her rival Scott Nelson met privately yesterday with interesting results. “I fully endorse Kerry. I think she is a smart, wise, consensus-building leader who will bring great things to our community,” Nelson said following the luncheon

meeting with Cook. Nelson said he was humbled by Cook, who welcomed him to work with her in the future, of course minus campaign tactics. “If anything I probably admire her more even now. She is a graceful woman - a very unique lady.”

C.O. Service predation control questioned Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A local predation control business owner called ranchers and doctors to testify on his behalf during an Environmental Appeal Board last week, which included the witnesses airing their dissatisfaction with the Conservation Officer Service. The quasi-judicial tribunal was conducted last Thursday and Friday at the Pioneer Complex after Kyle Lay of Layser Kennels made an appeal earlier this year to have the Ministry of Environment’s decision overturned to not renew his operating permit. Lay’s one-year permit which allowed him to be hired privately to kill problem wolves, bears and cougars predating on livestock expired last spring and was not renewed. During the time his permit was active last year Lay removed three packs of wolves totaling 13 animals predating on livestock all west of the Fraser River. Lay said previously

that his business was a small one, merely meant to give livestock producers a private option to what he says are ballooning wolf populations wreaking havoc in the Cariboo Chilcotin. Previous to Lay being issued the one-year permit, Lay was privately contracted for a pilot project funded between the federal and provincial governments which saw Lay work for the B.C. Cattlemen’s Wild Predator Loss Control and Compensation Pilot Program from 2002 to 2010 which operated quietly to kill cougars, wolves, grizzlies and black bears predating on domestic livestock. The witnesses at the hearing last week gave personal accounts of livestock losses due to predator attacks which they believed were due to a lack of response by or training of conservation officers. On the government’s behalf, manager Rodger Stewart called Chief Superintendent of the Conservation Officer Service Barry Farynuk

to testify Friday. During his testimony, Farynuk said management was influenced by cost-cutting measures in 2002 to make a “significant shift” in officer’s priorities. “Predation response fell off the mark,” Farynuk said, noting human safety has always been the service’s top priority, followed by property protection, environmental investigations and proactive enforcement. Farynuk clarified through 2002 to 2010, officers were still responding to predation complaints on wildlife however that “maybe there was some uncertainty as to priorities.” Farynuk said there are no longer any uncertainties of the government’s direction, and conservation officers across the province are currently receiving various levels of training regarding predation control. “Although we took a eight, nine year hiatus this isn’t a new business for us,” Farynuk said of the C.O. Service

reclaiming all control and work regarding predation issues on property. Farynuk said the Conservation Officer Service has been in existence for 106 years,

providing all levels of service regarding animal resources and want it back the way it has always operated. Farynuk also testified the service had 23,000 calls for service provin-

cially this year and he was not aware of one formal complaint against officers. He added there were 891 calls for service in the Cariboo Chilcotin this year. Panel chair David

Searle said he would give his decision in writing within the next three months. Under the Wildlife Act Searle has several options available, including the power to reinstate Lay’s permit.

Cook shares the private life that led to her public role as mayor Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Elation, excitement and a sense of relief buzzed through the crowd at Kerry Cook’s election camp Saturday

night as word of her mayoral win spread. Cell phones continued to ring as Cook’s front entryway became a revolving door for city staff, councillors,

friends, First Nations leaders and family who hooted and hollered as they congratulated the now twice-elected mayor, reflecting Cook’s signature collaborativeapproach style of doing business. “This has been an emotional day. I couldn’t have done it without all of you,” a jubilant Cook told supports as she stood beside her husband of 25 years, Dan Cook.  “This is a night I will never forget.”  Before, during and after the campaign and election, Cook sat down with the Cariboo Advisor to give a series of personal interviews sharing how her life has prepared her for this role. A wife and mother, Cook has also worked for the last 27 years as an instructor/coordinator for the ninemonth business technologies program at TRU, which she said has helped prepare her for her role of mayor through listening to her student’s stories. 

When it comes to family, you can never be too safe

Angie Mindus Photo

A family affair: Steffanie MacLean, her daughter Indie, Daniel, Meagan, Kerry and Dan Cook celebrate their re-election victory Saturday night. “It has definitely widened my understanding.”  Cook has said her aboriginal students have particularly taught her a lot the past ten years. “That changed everything for me. I think there is something powerful that happens when you’re able to listen to one another’s stories. It helps you find a way forward.” Cook has certainly found her own way forward as a community leader, in her first term gaining national attention for tackling escalating city crime while at the same time bridging the gap between Williams Lake and area First Nations’ communities. Cook received her most public political backing from local Shuswap leaders and, at the eleventh hour of her campaign, even received an unsolicited letter of endorsement from the leaders of the

Tsilhqot’in National Government who represent the communities opposing Taseko’s New Prosperity mine project, a project Cook wants so badly she can taste it. “It brought me to tears,” Cook said of the letter. “And it gives me hope, hope for the future.” Looking back at her life, Cook says all of life’s trials and tribulations have led her to this moment. Cook was just six and living in North Vancouver when her parents divorced, leaving her mother to raise three daughters on her own. Cook also kept a close relationship with her father, a corporate lawyer who was then the President of the Socred Party. “My father was probably the first person to introduce politics to me.” Cook’s mother remarried five years later to someone who would be another influential

person in Cook’s life, B.C. Rail train engineer and active union rep Derby Grossman. “I grew up with quite a diverse political perspective from the left to the right ... I think I was always brought up to be a part of the solution. That was very ingrained from a young age. I guess it was in my blood.” With her step-father stationed in Williams Lake, the family, which blended Cook and her two sisters with her step-father’s three children, two girls and a boy, moved to the lakecity in time for Cook to start Grade 8. Another impressionable experience for Cook occurred during the years Cook’s oldest sister Kathy suffered from a brain tumor and surgery, and was confined to a wheelchair the rest of her life as a result. “It kept things in perspective as a teenager growing up -- to appreciate good health and opportunities.” Kathy passed away in 1997 but Cook says her sister’s struggles also taught her the importance of wheelchair accessibility for communities. Cook met her husband Dan, a millwright at West Fraser, in 1981 while she was working in Williams Lake during the summer months while completing university at UBC, where  she received her Bachelor of Arts in International Relations, with a minor in Economics in 1984.  Cook married in Williams Lake in Oct. 1986 and the two started a family, Steffanie,

Daniel, and Meagan. Steffanie, who worked as her mom’s campaign manager, and her husband Chris MacLeod have made the couple grandparents twice over with three-year-old grandson Kailen and baby granddaughter Indie since Cook’s time as mayor. “I wouldn’t be standing here today if if weren’t for my family,” Cook said moments after winning Saturday night. Over the span of her political career, Cook and her family have run six consecutive municipal campaigns. Her first foray into municipal politics saw Cook unseat a councillor when she was just thirty five years old and a mother of three (her youngest Meagan just a toddler), serving from 1996-1999. After that, the family suffered through three agonizing failed bids for mayor in 1999, 2002 and again in 2005 to finally win the mayor’s seat in 2008. Last week’s 2011 win makes Cook the only mayor in 15 years to serve two consecutive terms as Williams Lake mayor since Walt Cobb. And Cook says she is focused, excited and energized to get back to work for residents after what she calls “a decisive victory.” The first order of business is to meet with city councillors and staff to prepare for December 6’s inaugural meeting, where Cook and her six councillors will be formally sworn in. After that, it will be all business for Cook, who says her top priority this time around is economic development. “We want long term, well thought out plans for our economic future and that is what we have been working on,” Cook says of her business expansion and attraction initiative which has tasked local heads of mining, forestry, the Business Improvement Association, the university and Chamber of Commerce to come up with and prioritize specific economic strategies.

‘Tis the season for shopping smart and from the heart In the height of craft sale season in the middle of November it easy to get swept away into the Christmas spirit, and these craft fairs offer wonderful unique gifts for those special people on your list. Craft markets often a great alternative to shopping malls, and often are full of unique items that just may be perfect for someone on your list. But be careful to keep your Christmas shopping from becoming a collection of knick-knacks that will end up getting trashed. As I’ve gotten older and taken on buying all my own gifts for the people on my list I’ve been overcome with this feeling of finding the perfect gift that they aren’t just going to toss into a box or onto a shelve and forget about. I think Christmas and the gifts that go along with it have lost

all meaning behind them, instead of buying people more stuff they don’t necessarily need or even want is a waste of money, time and of the wonderful meaning behind Christmas. I think when it comes down to buying gifts it shouldn’t be about how much money was spent, or how it’s the coolest, latest toy. It should be about the meaning behind it. It’s the meaning behind the gift that should matter. In times when everything is over commercialized in our society, Christmas gifts should come from the heart, yes maybe even though the person receiving the gift may not always understand, at least they will appreciate the fact you thought about the gift. I find it very hard to spend money on something I am not positive will either mean something to the person, or at the very least be

useful. The last thing I want is to be the person giving useless, meaningless gifts that end up hidden away in box, or even worse re-gifted along with other useless junk collected over the years. The Cariboo Chilcotin is host to many quaint and heartwarming Bed and Breakfasts. Why not give the gift of a weekend away together this winter? The memories will last a lifetime. Christmas is about giving, but not giving just anything so the next time you are out Christmas shopping and you are holding up a pair of golf ball locater glasses you think would be perfect for Uncle Bill just think does he really need these, and does he really want these? Try this season to be the person giving those gifts that wont be forgotten the day after Christmas.

The Made in the Cariboo Craft sale this weekend is a great place to find something unique, and meaningful for the people on your list this year. Another source of inspiration could be found at Scout Island this weekend at the Holiday Earth-Friendly Family Event. Make a wreath, exchange some special preserves and spend some time with those you love. When it comes down to it, knickknack or not, if the gift you are giving has meaning and your giving it from your heart, that’s all that really matters. So put in your favorite Christmas CD, and make your Christmas list and have fun this holiday season. Remember a little thought goes a long way, so use your brain before you pull your wallet out and mindless fill those shopping bags this season.

Armed with a touque, scarve, jacket and of course his reindeer ears, four-year-old Max Brown enjoys all the festivities the Winter Light Celbration had to offer Friday night at Spirit Square downtown.

It’s all about the way you doff your cap I’ve got this pair of cowboy boots that pinch a bit but they give me two inches in height and make me part of the scene up here. Vanity will rule out sanity every time. Once I was dressing for a party and being somewhat of an artistic gent, I put on a blue silk shirt and a necklace of amber beads that seem to just the right combo. However I took a fancy to a pendant and decided to wear that around my neck too. Got to the party and some guy strides up to me and says; ”Are you gay?” Of course we all like to look nice and wear fine clothing but there is also (in my case anyway), the tendency to dress most comfortably and put on some aged rags affecting the rumpled old fart look.

What do I care anyway? At my age nobody can tell me I look like hell. They can go there for all I’m concerned. I am reminded of that old toast; ‘”Here’s to hell, may your stay there be as pleasant as your trip to get there.” And I’m far past the attempt at trying to attract a member of the opposite sex. Mind you, I still keep my fantasies alive. When we were

young boys, sneaking off to look at the lady’s underwear section in the Eaton’s catalogue was the risqué thing to do. Now what they wore in those days, was a far cry from Victoria’s Secret let me tell you. It took a powerful imagination to get worked up about anything that might be underneath those thick layers of wool and cotton. For those who may not know, Victoria’s Secret is an American retailer of women's wear, lingerie and beauty products. Started by a man who felt embarrassed trying to purchase lingerie for his wife in a department store, he created an empire with sales of over US$5 billion. (This is turning into a plug.) Some many years ago I was at a conference

at a fancy hotel in Los Vegas when I had the good fortune to spend the night with a lady friend. In the morning the maid had scooped up her Victoria’s Secret nightgown along with the bed sheets. So my friend, who was a very proper Englishwoman, phoned up the front desk to inquire about the missing item. She was at all times courteous and polite but was getting the run-around. Fortunately, a big bombastic, dyed blonde American woman was in the room and overheard the conversation. “Gimme that phone”; she yelled, then simply blasted the person on the other end of the line. “If that nightgown doesn’t show up within the hour, this will be the last time this annual convention will end

up in your hotel.” she decreed. Within fifteen minutes, the head of hotel security knocked on the door with the nightgown, extremely apologetic. This was a lesson for me, in the two cultural approaches to solving a problem. But I digress. Carmen put my favouite pair of jeans in the garbage, saying they were too old, worn and ripped. Okay maybe they are faded, have holes in the knees and smell, but that’s no reason to get rid of them. In my opinion, they are quite fashionable. “Yeah if you were 50 years younger”; sez Carmen. Well okay, my clothes are not exactly in style anymore. Carmen, further states; “ its time for a change, the world has moved on dear.” “Well

let it. I’m into retro”; I respond. “ “Nonsense”; says my dear wife, “we are going shopping.” I have to admit, I do have a glorious enthusiasm for the finer things in life, (if only I could afford them.) Even my neighbour once admonished me to go out and buy some new clothes. All this from a guy whose his belt was a bungy cord. I told him to take a short walk off a long pier, (Or is it the other way around?) This whole aversion to other people’s taste in my wearings started when my mother bought me a pair of Buster Brown shoes as a kid. Tough as nails, built to last several lifetimes with brass eyelet's and laces like chain mail. I was certain the soles were made from the cast off tires

from 18 wheelers. Real clunkers that I despised and that cramped my feet as I grew older. We lost them in a move, to my great relief. I like draping my clothes over chairs, doorknobs, anything handy. That way I can readily find them. Carmen on the other hand puts everything away, out of sight, sometimes threatening me with purgatory. Now I am sure God’s grace extends to the untidy too. We are all just trying to get through our lives with the best of intentions and in the best way possible. Its just that we are after all, human and can’t escape from our failings to do right. I told Carmen that if her problem with me persists, please contact a service representative. (In this case,

A ring for the season Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Living in a rustic city lie Williams Lake, there are often many more occasions where jeans and cowboy boots are acceptable, but this year’s Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust Formal Christmas Gala is not one of occasions. It’s time to dust off those fancy clothes, and get all dressed up for a night of dinner, dancing, and raising money for a great cause this Saturday night. There will be live entertainment, and a silent auction for Gala guests, and all the money raised will go toward purchasing a new digital mammography unit for Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

Never underestimate the power of a shoebox Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The power behind one little shoebox may be underestimated by most people, but the children who receive an Operation Christmas Child shoebox at Christmas would beg to differ. Mind you these aren’t ordinary empty shoeboxes, these ones are filled with small practical gifts and most of all to the child receiving these boxes they are often filled with hope.

“We are a blessed country,� said co-coordinator, Tracey Thiessen. “(These shoeboxes) give kids in other countries hope.� Cariboo Bethel Church is the main drop off location for the charity, and all shoeboxes need to be in to the office by 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25. “These boxes are going to kids who may have never received a gift in their lives and may never get another gift,� said Thiessen.

Some items that Thiessen says are a good idea for the boxes are practical, educational items like pencils, erasers and pencil crayons. Other items that work are stuffed animals, small toys or hard candies. Thiessen says another great idea is a new toothbrush, socks or t-shirts. “Some people even put shoes in their shoe boxes and pack other items around them,� she says. Thiessen says her and

Linda Fornwald, the other co-coordinator of the project, hope to have around 700 boxes to send away. “As a community it’s a really neat opportunity to give to someone who has less,� says Thiessen. “In our family, we involve our children and it really teaches them to put other needs in front of their own.� If you would like to put together a shoebox, you can drop it off at the office at the Cariboo Bethel Church today, tomorrow, or Friday. “It shows these kids that other people care about them and it gives them hope,� says Thiessen.

elephant gift exchange, and an exchange table of seeds, preserves, unused Christmas cards, CDs and other items.  There will be wrapping and decorating with natural decorations, along with kids programs. “We are in times, for many, of hardship,” says Marg Evans, Education Coordinator for the Conservation Society.  “Along with this comes a season where more spending.” Evans said because of that situation, they wanted to put together a fun community event that required little to no spending. “Someone can drop by and work on a wreath, create an inex-

pensive gift, or do an exchange on the white elephant table,” said Evans. “And there is no need to stay the whole day.” She also said there will be activities for children which will

allow parents the opportunity to work on something of their own while being able to enjoy a stress free environment. On top of all the fun activities, there will also be lots of

local food provided by the Cariboo Growers according to Evans, but people are free to bring along something to share. “There will be home made soup and buns, along with some baked

goods,” said Evans. Evans also adds there will be membership information and lists of local charities for people who are looking for ideas for low-impact, socially positive giving for the holiday season.

BC College of Teachers

Non-practising BC College of Teachers teaching certificate? Retired teacher? Please read this notice and visit www.bcct.ca immediately With the passage of the Teachers’ Act and the transition of the BC College of Teachers to the new Teacher Regulation Branch of the Ministry of Education, there are some changes that may require you to take urgent action. All persons who hold a non-practising or non-practising [retired] certificate must upgrade to a practising certificate by January 6, 2012 in order to retain a teaching certificate. Non-practising certificate holders who have not paid the $120 practising fee or $60 top-up fee to the College by January 6, 2012 will lose their certificates under legislation upon the College’s transition to the new Teacher Regulation Branch in early January. After January 6, former BC College of Teachers members who held these certificates would be required to reapply for new certificates under the requirements in place at the time of application. Members who hold non-practising certificates but are currently in receipt of LTD benefits are exempt from this change.

apartments for seniors, offering incentives for builders to build on empty lots downtown and owners to modify existing structures to house businesses on the main floor and apartments above. “It is a strategy that we’ve talked about for a while. It just makes perfect sense.” Cook says. “If we plan a city around the needs of seniors, it will be accessible to young families as well.” When questioned about her political aspirations for the future, Cook said she is not aligned with any one party and only has eyes

School board trustees elected and ready to go Voters in School District 27 chose their new school board trustees during last week’s elections. Zone 6, the City of Williams Lake, was won by political newcomer Dr. Doug Neufeld with 2057

votes over opponent Rob Zacharias with 1037. During campaigning Neufeld said his top priority would be to support teachers and look for a long-term plan for the district. Zone 5, Williams Lake

fringe area, was won by Sheila Boehm with 337 votes. Her opponents Jim Ritchie received 144 votes while Oleh Lazarchuk won 81 votes. In Zone 4, Horsefly, Likely and 150 Mile House, incumbent

Heather McKenzie was narrowly out-seated by newcomer Jackie Austin in a 124-138 vote. Austin said she was prompted to run for trustee after feeling frustrated that parents weren’t being listened to in recent

years by the board. In Zone 7, the Chilcotin, Joyce Cooper was recently elected by acclamation after her opponent Richard Elliott withdrew from the race. In the southern half of the district William Van

Osch, Tanya Guenther and Patricia Baker were all elected by acclamation. The new board has about four months to familiarize themselves with their new jobs before making critical budget decisions.

Cariboo Steel will continue to improve and serve Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor As of Nov. 1, 2001, Cariboo Steel Centre down on Mackenzie Avenue has been under new owners, but no need to worry the business is in very capable hands. Jeremy Stangoe and Jason Rowley bought the business from previous owner Rick Weil, and both men have over ten years experience at Cariboo Steel. “Back in February, I asked the previous owner, Rick, if he would ever consider selling, and he said ‘Ya, why are you interested,’” said Stangoe. “I went right to Jason’s house after that…and six months later here we are.” Stangoe said he and

Stangoe said he and Rowley hope to continue to grow the company, as well as improve service to existing customers, and new clients.

“We cater to industrial and forest industries, but can complete any kind of metal project for pretty much anyone,” said Stangoe.

Rowley recognized the potential and opportunities in the business and that’s why they thought they should give it a shot. Rowley and Stangoe are equal partners in the business and their general manger is Ward Stangoe, Jeremy’s father.

“We’ve got a good group of employees and we work to keep them happy,” said Stangoe. He said right now they have around 11 employees and that all of them have over ten years of experience. Cariboo Steel Centre has been in the commu-

PICTURED LEFT: Master Seaman Emma Davidson tyies a knot at the evaluation stand during the Seaman Inter Divsional Competion in the WL gym this past Saturday.

Interdivisional Seaman competition unites Cadets Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The 202 Chilcotin Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps hosted the Inter Divisional Seamanship Competition, welcoming two other corps

from northern B.C. on Saturday for a day full of events. The other two Corps participating were Prince George and Smithers. The Cadets participated and evaluated

individually and as a team in various activities. Some of these activities included sheer leg construction, knot tying, coiling, heaving a line and the poplar Boatswain Pipe which

is basically a whistle that the Cadet perform different calls on. “My favorite is the Boatswain pipe,” said Eric Bristow, a Sea Cadet for four years. According the Cadets, another big

part of Cadets is the new people they get to meet and the friends they make from all over Canada. “I love getting together with other Cores, and seeing old friends,” said Tanya

Vigeant, a Sea Cadet for three years. Bristow said he has friends from all over Canada The 202 Chilcotin Royal Canadian Sea Cadets from Williams Lake were the winners

this year, and will go to Victoria in March to compete in the provincials where they hope to qualify to go to nationals out East. Prince George came in second with Smithers coming in third.

The Williams Lake Stamps come back from a loss in Lac Hach Friday night to beat the Tomahawks Saturday night in Williams Lake with a 5-2 score.

AUTO CARE MALL 1-888-992-6828 250-392-6828

In a home and home series between the Tomahawks and the Stampeders both teams won at home and lost on the road. Friday night the Lac La Hache Tomahawks were victorious over the Stamps on their home turf winning 5-3. The next night, a mere 60

kilometres or so down the road, the Stamps came out on top on their home turf winning 5-2 over the Tomahawks. Top scorers for the Stamps on Saturday night were Francis Johnson, and Tyrell Robbins both with two goals apiece. Next weekend the Stamps

are on the road to take on the Omineca Ice, and Houston Luckies. The Stamps will be back at home Dec. 3 to take on the East Division leaders, the Quesnel Kangaroos. Currently the Stamps are 6-4, and will be looking for some wins on the road this weekend.

All eyes are on the puck as it whizzes towards the Timberwolves net during the final game on Sunday afternoon against Vernon. The T-Wolves fought hard but lost 4-0.

Strong showing for Pee Wees Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The Williams Lake Timberwolves Pee Wee Tier 2 team hosted a tournament at the Cariboo Memorial Complex over the weekend, and came away with second place. There were teams from Fort St. John, Quesnel, Salmon Arm, Vernon and Prince George in town for the tournament that saw the home team dominate all but one of their round robin games. They started the tournament off with a 7-3 win over Quesnel on Friday night and a then had a big win over Salmon later that night 8-1.

Saturday started off with a 6-0 victory over Fort St. John and finished Saturday with a tough game against Vernon losing 7-1. The team started Sunday off with a win against Prince George with a 6-4 score, which meant they finished the round robin with a 4-1 record. They went on to the final game on Sunday at noon against Vernon. The T-Wolves fought hard against the Tier 1 team but ended up losing 4-0, with all of Vernon’s goals scored on the power play. The T-Wolves dominated the ice for most of the weekend, and showed they could compete.

(NC)—Many Canadians base their outdoors activities on the air quality index, but when it comes to taking action to improve indoor air quality in the home, Canadians appear to have room for improvement. A Direct Energy survey, conducted by Angus Reid, showed a whopping 69 per cent of Canadians don’t have their ducts cleaned on a regular basis, and 73 per cent admitted they did not know what a heat recovery

ventilator (HRV) was. Both can serve to improve the indoor air quality by removing dust and allergens and funnelling in fresh air. ‘I’ve seen five pounds of dust removed from a home during a duct cleaning,’ laughs Dave Walton, Direct Energy’s director of home ideas. ‘I even saw a toy car in there once. It’s especially easy to rack up the pounds of dust in a home if you have pets, have recently had construction completed or, it’s

just been a long time between duct cleanings.’ While changing furnace filters can help improve air quality, having the ducts cleaned on a regular basis can really improve the indoor air quality of a home. In addition, an HRV can benefit air quality by swapping in fresh air, while protecting heated or cooled air. And right now, installing an HRV can see a return of $375 via the ecoEnergy rebate, which means

Canadians can breathe easier both figuratively and literally. More information can be found online at www.directenergy.com or toll-free at 1-866277-1191.

THEATRES

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 Movie Synopsis Bella (Kristen Stewart) decides to remain human for a while longer after marrying Edward (Robert Pattinson). They honeymoon on a private island where Edward can bask in the sun without causing alarm. When she begins to get sick, Edward rushes her home to Forks. They soon realize that despite all odds, Bella is pregnant and the baby is growing so quickly that Bella's life is in danger. The Cullens are afraid that if Bella gives birth, she will die, but she refuses to give the child up. When the Quileute wolf pack learns of the pregnancy, they fear that the baby will be like a newborn vampire—a crazed blood drinker who murders innocent humans. They plan to destroy it—and if Bella is killed in the process, so be it.

NEW vIDEO RELEASES SUPER 8 In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town set out to make a zombie movie. While shooting their Super 8 film, they witness a catastrophic train crash and, after barely escaping themselves, they soon discover that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town and local Deputy Jackson Lamb (Kyle Chandler) tries to uncover the truth—something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

HOROSCOPE Someone may be trying to take advantage of you. Maybe it’s time to look into ways you can improve your health. You may want to take a look at your direction in life. Plan your social events carefully. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday. Difficulties at an emotional level may be likely. Travel is evident, but be cautious while in transit. Opportunities to learn important information will surface through discussions with peers or seminars you attend. You need to get out if you want to meet potential partners. Your lucky day this week will be Sunday. Be precise in your communications to avoid any misunderstandings and arguments. Be fair, not colorful. Your ability to charm others will put you in the limelight at social functions. Curb or cut out that bad habit you’ve been meaning to do something about. Your lucky day this week will be Monday. Your relationship is undergoing some changes. Look into real estate. Your partner will blow situations out of proportion. You must not let fellow workers take advantage of your fine talents. Your lucky day this week will be Thursday.

Last Week’s Answers

Invest wisely. Your personal life could have you tied up in knots. Drastic changes regarding your personal attitude are evident. Lack of funds may add stress to your already uncertain situation. Don’t push your opinions on others this week or you may find yourself in the doghouse. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday.

Don’t be afraid to try something different I will be at the Grey Cup this year in Vancouver and of course I am cheering for the Lions. Can the BC Lions win footballs holy grail in Vancouver and make up for the Canucks failed bid for the Stanley Cup? The last time the Canucks lost in the final game for all the marbles, the Lions went on to win the Grey Cup. Will history repeat itself? Over the years I have served a lot of different food when watching the Grey Cup and it doesn’t seem to matter what is served, it goes over well. People somehow get an appetite when the

ole Coupe de Grey is played and will eat soup with as much gusto as a nice beef sandwich, or perhaps some interesting hors d oeuvres. A spicy Thai soup might be welcomed at half-time during the Grey cup game in Vancouver this Sunday, or maybe just a plate of fish and home made

potato fries from regular or sweet potato. Of course you could have some good old fashioned hot dogs with fried onions and some nice mustard. I suspect the price of a hot dog at BC Place is going to leave some serious holes in my wallet... add on a brewskie to the bill and I’ll be off to the bank for a loan. I always have a stadium hot dog, as it is part of my football tradition, and it will be loaded with onions. I thought of all the nice half time football

Don’t let others restrict you from saying how you feel about family issues. You may get upset with peers or relatives. Your home environment appears to be a little shaky. Don’t let friends or relatives make you feel guilty if you’re not able to attend one of their affairs. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday.

grub I could serve and decided to come up with a nice simple recipe that is quite different from ordinary game day food. These cute looking poppers will explode in your mouth... give em a try! Grey Cup Half-time Poppers

2 cups of coarsely grated aged cheddar cheese ½ cup of soft butter

1 cup all purpose flour 1 tsp paprika 25 large green olives with pimiento centres In a large bowl, blend together cheese and butter with a mixer... add in flour and paprika...mix well. Shape 1 tablespoon of cheese mixture around each olive, dipping hands in flour, if necessary to prevent a lot of sticking stuff on your hands. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until they are nice and golden in colour. (Half time score...10-3 for Lions) Go Lions... The Grey Cup would look good in BC. Bye for now and Good Cooking.

Finish off old projects before starting something new. You will be highly entertaining when in contact with your lover. This will not be the best day to try to push your ideas or concerns. Your personal life will be under the gun and you may want to avoid the questions your lover is going to want to ask you.Your lucky day this week will be Sunday. Don’t waste this exciting day by sitting at home. Travel for business purposes may bring the highest returns. You will be well looked upon due to your compassionate and giving nature. Listen and formulate your course of action. You will be indecisive. Your lucky day this week will be Monday. Get out and have some fun. Your ability to put things together will be appreciated by your comrades. Social gatherings will be conducive to meeting new potential mates. Finish those changes you’ve been talking about making to your residence. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday. You will find that you can work progressively at improving yourself this week. Spend some time with the one you love. Pleasure trips will be satisfying. Changes in your home may be disruptive and upsetting. Plan your day carefully. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

If you act with anger you may blow the relationship. You might find added popularity with those around you this week. This will not be the time to give too much to your children. Major job changes or opportunities to get ahead professionally are apparent. Your lucky day this week will be Sunday. Travel and family gatherings should be in order. Bring work home if it will help you get caught up. You can ask for favors but don’t take them for granted. Do the necessary chores and then do things that please you. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

CRD Board Highlights – November 17, 2011 2012 Central Cariboo Grants for Assistance The Cariboo Regional District Board endorsed the recommendation from the Central Joint committee regarding the 2012 Cariboo/City of Williams Lake joint grants for assistance applications. A total of $19,958 in grants for assistance was approved under the CRD and City of Williams Lake Memorandum of Understanding.  The City of Williams Lake will contribute $13,970.60 while the CRD will contribute $5,987.40 which will be shared equally between Electoral Areas D, E, and F. The Board also referred two other requests back to Central Joint. These applications are for requests from the Williams Lake Dry Grad Committee and the Williams Lake Daybreak Rotary Club.   Barkerville Photographic Exhibit to Tour China The Regional District received information in a release from Premier Christy Clark regarding a new Barkerville exhibit slated to tour China. The document announced the signing of a letter of intent between Barkerville and the Guangdong Museum of Overseas Chinese that will form the foundation for a tour of the Barkerville photographic exhibit in China. The exhibit, entitled “Who Am I?”, explores the lives of Chinese migrants who came to Barkerville in the late 19th and early 20th centuries during the gold rush. It is expected to be on display at the Guangdong museum in Guangzhou in the spring of 2013.   Building Inspection Services for Williams Lake The City of Williams Lake and the Cariboo Regional District have developed a five year agreement to provide Building Inspection Services to residents of Williams Lake through a shared Building Inspection Service.

The Cariboo Regional District Board endorsed this agreement and it will now be presented at the next Williams Lake Council meeting for consideration on November 29.   CRD Service Recognition The Cariboo Regional District recognized five directors who will not be returning to office for the next term. The Directors were awarded with tokens of appreciation for their years of public service. The directors include; Art Dumaresq (Area H – 12 years), Roberta Faust (Area B – three years), Steve Mazur (Area E – three years), Rick Mumford (Area K – seven years), and Jay Vermette (six years).

  Community to Community Forum Scheduled Cariboo Regional District Board members have been invited to attend a Community to Community Forum with the Nazko First Nations. The forum is tentatively scheduled to take place in January, 2012 at the Nazko Community Hall.   BC Community Recreation Grant Program The Cariboo Regional District will be submitting two applications to the new BC Community Recreation (BCCR) Grant Program provincial funding program. The first project is a joint application with the City of Quesnel for

$7.5 M for the North Cariboo Multi-Centre. The second application will be for the continuation of the CRD’s Wheelchair Accessible Trails. The deadline for applications is December 28, 2011. The BCCR program will provide up to 80 percent of eligible costs. The Project Categories for the funding program include: Recreation and sport projects such as indoor sports and recreation infrastructure Bike paths Walkways Greenways Amenities related to the above infrastructure Capital projects that get children and youth playing again The Selection

Criteria for the BCCR grant include advancing the principal of being active, community health benefits, and

additional criteria such as financial planning, partnerships, sound risk management. Eligible projects must be com-

pleted by March 31, 2015. Upcoming Meetings Friday, December 9 – CRD Board Meeting.
