The Bella Coola River winds its way peacefully through the community of Hagensborg in the Bella Coola Valley recently, in stark contrast to how Hagensborg looked this time last year (inset) when heavy rains caused a record-breaking flood which left homes and businesses damaged. The residents of the valley and transportation crews have worked hard in the last year to repair all the damage and put the terrible experience of the disaster behind them. Unfortunately, residents are feeling very uneasy as the one year annisarvary approaches, due to the current weather forecast which is calling for 100 millimetres of rain or more in the next few days. For more stories on the recovery from the flood of 2010, see pages 20 and 21. (inset: photo submitted)

NEWS BRIEFS Cougar sighting within city limits Two women and a young girl were terrified by an attack they witnessed on their dog from a cougar yesterday afternoon on a forest trail between Woodland Drive and the Westridge subdivision. The cougar leapt between the young girl and her dog as the group were out for an afternoon walk. Thankfully everyone including the dog escaped the attack, save for scratches they received from running away over a fence. The B.C. Conservation Officer Service were called regarding the incident. POLICE NEED HELP WITH VEHICLE FIRES Police are hoping the public can help them track down a suspect or suspects who have been setting vehicles on fire in the wooded area of Bond Lake Road. The latest incident occurred September 2 when officers on patrol found a burned out four door sedan abandoned on the side of the road on Bond Lake Road near the SPCA. Police say it is the second incident of this nature in the same area, and are asking the public to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or Crimestoppers if they have any information.



RCMP calling for review on bear spray Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor The head of the Williams Lake RCMP is calling on City officials to consider banning bear spray and machettes in Williams Lake after a homeowner was attacked with bear spray when he interrupted a break and enter in his own home. “Bear spray and machettes are the preferred weapons of choice in Williams Lake,” said Staff Sgt. Warren Brown, pointing out yet another incident Sunday evening involving youth and bear spray outside the 7-11 Food Store. “I say the leaders of our community need to have a discussion on this. I believe (these weapons) are too accessible.” The break and enter occurred at 9:50 p.m. Thursday when a homeowner returned home to the 1400 block of Western Avenue to find two teenage males inside his residence. Police say the homeowner was bear sprayed before the two suspects fled on foot. According to Brown, last Thursday’s break and enter is just one more example of why the matter urgently needs to be addressed. “Because we are #4 nationally on the violent crime severity index, and #1 in the province for violent

crime, I would suggest it is our due diligence that we review whether it is acceptable to have access to these types of weapons in our community,” Brown said. “I believe the risk far outweighs the benefits here.” Brown said being sprayed by bear spray, which is readily available throughout the lakecity for its intended purpose of protecting oneself from a bear attack, is “completely incapacitating and very painful” when used on a person. In year’s past, several patrons and employees of a pizza restaurant were terrorized by thieves brandishing machettes and bear spray, while Brown said his officers have also been confronted by teens waving bear spray this year. “One day someone is going to get shot.” The suspects from last Thursday’s break and enter are both described as native males; with one being in his mid-to-late teens, five foot six inches tall weighing about 140 pounds, while the other is described as being in his early teens, five foot four, 120 pounds and wearing a red hoodie. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or Crimestoppers.

Hot Stone Therapy:

‘Getting stoned’ the right way By Torey Lee Hot Stone Therapy is an ancient healing art that has been reintroduced in the past few years as a massage modality. A massage therapist from Tucson, AZ developed the techniques now used, in 1994. Since then it very quickly became one of the most influential and demanded treatment in the SPA industry in North America and had taken many forms. Massage therapy using hot stones is a

form of thermotherapy or hydrotherapy. It uses deep, penetrating heat from smooth basalt rocks and, depending on the treatment, sometimes using alternating cold with marble stones. This allows for deep tissue therapy without the physical pressure commonly associated with deep tissue massage. Physiological benefits of alternating temperatures to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven. It improves the work of

It also affects the sensory system which stimulates production of neuro-chemicals that brings sense of well-being. Stone therapy goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage, and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well being. Truly a “Body-MindSpirit” philosophy that unfolds throughout the treatment. The ultimate goal of the therapy is relaxation that will bring balance and alleviate chronic and

and bringing a sense of peace. The polycrystalline structure of basalt stones allows the heat waves to slowly distributes the warmth and attract all the blood to the surface - to the skin and extremities, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the cells and encouraging the release of carbon dioxide and toxins. The coolness from the marble stones penetrates deep and fast due to its chemical composition and monocrystalline structure. They feel fresh and cleansing, like a breeze in the mountains. This freshness is welcomed after the heat of basalt stones. They

acute problems. Basalt is the usual choice of stones used for hot stone massage. Generally, they are naturally smoothed by the water source from which they are harvested; oceans or rivers. The basalt stones are heated to a temperature of between125 135C in a water bath. If used, the marble stones are cold but not frozen. This combination of stone compositions and temperatures brings a truly unique experience.

Considered the “Stone of Harmony” in China, jade will bring balance to your Ying and Yang. Hot Stone Therapy is sensational. It takes you to dimensions of your self that you were not aware of. This is the therapy for today’s over accelerated rhythms of life and the subsequent stress people carry on their shoulders and in their hearts. Calming and balancing. Do not try to squeeze a hot stone massage between meeting or lunch break you will not want to go back. After a treatment you need time to reacquaint with your new self, you need space to explore it and relieve the moments of being one with stones. Stones are your guides in the miracle of self-healing. That is what this therapy is all about!

Concrete Fitness requests a review of City rec services Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor A topic that is on the minds of many Williams Lake residents was a hot topic at last week’s Joint Committee meeting. The owners of Concrete Fitness made a request to the committee to complete a review of the services offered at Cariboo Memorial Complex. The purpose of the review would be to make a decision whether taxpayers dollars could be bet-

ter spent than on an expanded gym or specialized fitness classes like yoga crrently offered through Leisure Services. Stefan Hoelzler, who represented Concrete Fitness but also held a letter of support signed by other private Williams Lake businesses as well as the BIA and Chamber of Commerce, presented on why he thinks the services at the complex need to be reviewed. His main argument was that the City

should not provide services that are directly in competition with local businesses. At the meeting he gave a very well thought out presentation to the committee in regards to the reasons why CMC says they need to offer these services. Hoelzler said he respects the other views on the topic, but feels taxpayers dollars could be better spent on other services, and the complex should review current servic-

es to decide if all of the current programs offered are needed. Most councilors and CRD directors who commented did start off by saying they were impressed with the presentation, but were concerned with splitting the community, and openly wondered what limiting fitness services offered will do to lower income families. Councilor Laurie Walters was very concerned for low income families stressing that

the services available at the complex are in place in order to provide services for all sectors of the community. “There is always going to be competition for any business,� said Walters. She expressed her serious concern over how having these services are vital to low income families having a healthy lifestyle. After listening to the presentation, Mayor Kerry Cook thanked the delegate,

City and CRD reviewing pool options

Courtney Taylor Photo

The Sam Ketcham pool has been great for the last 30 year, and despite recent renovations there is now talks of something new in the future due to pipe problems.

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor With more than one million dollars yet to be paid by taxpayers for previous renovations to the Sam Ketchum Pool at Cariboo Memorial Complex, this summer saw more money being poured into the pool that is apparently past its prime. The City lost close to $100,00 this summer in revenue as well as a month of providing a pool service due to a leak, which is looking now to be merely a bandaid solution to a much bigger problem. At the Joint Committee meeting last week between the City and Regional District, City Planning Manager Geoff Paynton presented the

report on the costs lost this summer, as well as three options for the future of the pool. According to Paynton, the City is kind of in a Catch 22; they can leave the problem and hope for the best, or fix part of the problem and hope the rest holds. The two problems the pool has are old pipes that are leaking, and the main pool tank and spider cracks causing leaks. The main pool tank could be fixed for $300,000$400,000, but there is nothing they can do about the pipes without destroying the pool. The third option is to start from scratch, and begin plans for a new complex.  At the Joint meeting

Sex offender back in Horsefly Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor A man with a history of violent sex offenses went home to Horsefly last week after being released by the courts, much to the dismay of members of the small, rural community. Phones at the offices of Cariboo North and South MLAs Bob Simpson and Donna Barnett have been ringing off the hook with calls from concerned Horsefly residents about the release of Patrick Vincent Rodman. Rodman moved to Horsefly at the beginning of the summer after his long term

supervision order expired in relation to convictions involving violent sexual offences. At that time Staff Sgt. Warren Brown warned the community of Rodman’s past record and of the high likelihood of him reoffending. Rodman was released on a peace bond with strict conditions, of which he breached in July and was arrested by police. Last Tuesday Provincial Court Judge E. Bayliff sentenced Rodman to time served and also modified an existing condition where he was now to reside at his residence

in Horsefly. Rodman must still abide by several conditions including that he not possess knives, weapons or firearms, that he have no contact with anyone under the age of 16 years, he must not enter any playground, school ground or daycare centre and

he must not attend any public park or swimming area where persons under the age of 16 years are present. Brown said in a news release that the Williams Lake RCMP will continue to monitor Rodman’s compliance with the imposed conditions.


and said the decision would be made at the next meeting. Concrete Fitness representatives wanted to make it very clear that they are not trying to shut down classes at the complex. They want a review of services to determine whether the city really needs to offer several variations of the same classes offered by other private businesses at a more competitive rate due to tax subsidies. According to the City, a report from CMC will be brought before the October Joint Committee meeting. At that time the Joint Committee will vote on whether to review services provided by Leisure Services.

last week, it definitely felt like any more money spent on the pool would be a waste, and that it is now time to start talking about something new. “I think it is very Are You Looking ng g clear that we have to For A Night Out t start planning for the This Winter future,â€? said Mayor Wednesday Night Cook.

the Cariboo Advisor Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Everybody wants, but what do we need? A person can have a lot of wants. A new TV, car, house, boat, clothes, etcetera but one can also have a lot of needs. A roof over their head, food, warm clothes, etcetera. The average person also has a lot of trouble identify a ‘want’ from a ‘need’ and guess what? So does a community. Right now Williams Lake wants a lot of things, but they also need some things as well. And one of the big ones on top of both those lists is a new pool.

The inevitable truth is that yes, Sam Ketcham pool is old. It is past its prime and needs to be replaced. But does that mean we as a community need to rack up a multimillion dollar bill to be a state of the art recreation complex? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean the community just needs a pool, they need a few other things as well. In life, wants can add up faster than we know it, and it is important to always remember the want

versus a need. On a bigger scale, the City will have to decide what is a need versus a want when it comes to a new complex. They will have to decide what the community needs, rather than what everyone wants. There are over 10, 000 people in the community, so how will the City decide what everyone needs as a collective, rather than what certain individuals need or what. They City will have their work cut out for

them, they will not be able to just stick everyone’s wants into a hat and pull out X number and those be the needs of the community. There will have to be surveys done, and information gathered, and proposals draw up. It’s not always easy differentiating a want from a need, but it is always the best way to avoid over spending. Even in day-to-day, and especially when it comes to a multi-million dollar complex.

Internet killed the video store With yet another local video rental store closing its doors in the community, it is safe to say the era of movie renting from a store is coming to an end. We can all recall many memories of renting movies for special occasions, like sleepovers, or walking the dog with your parents and getting a movie. Some of us have fond memories of trips to rent a movie as kids we don’t recall the bas stuff like late charges. But now, people are

moving to the trend of renting movies off the internet from sites like Netflicks, or Movies on Demand from Shaw and less trips to the local video store. No one can deny how much more convenient this option can be for busy families, who can now avoid late fees on their over due movies. With movies you can rent/buy and watch anytime with no worries of a late fee. The video store has evolved over the last two decades, but

is slowly losing the race against the internet. They moved from VHS, to DVD’s but now there are no other options, and many are succumbing to the effects of at-home renting options. Blockbuster, one of the biggest names in movie rentals, has been closing doors all over the country, and has claimed bankruptcy. It is sad to see this era ending, but time waits for no man and it’s the time of the internet, and movies on demand

right from the comfort of your home, late fees not included. There is still Movie’s on the Go still open for business in the community, but one can only wonder for how long? So before trips to the movie store are no more: take a walk, rent a movie, and try not get any late fees this time. It wont be long before video rental stores are obsolete, and ancient history. It is sad, but all good things do have to come to end at some point.

Before participating in the 31st Annual Terry Fox Run, all particpates, including Ella Kruus, 3, took part in a group warm up routine.

One more fishing story yet to be written As I write this there are 60 days left until race day, which means 43 days until I leave. Wow, time really does fly when you are working on a project like this. The Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Center is hosting an event for the Baja 1000 Fundraiser on October 13, 2011 from 4:00 Pm to 7:00 PM at their 2nd Avenue location. This will be a fundraising event geared towards families. We will be bringing down the Polaris RZR 900 XP and maybe some quads. On the fundrais-

Baja or Bust

with Kane Fraser

ing note we will also be holding a raffle with some really cool prizes. The first prize will be a Polaris Sportsman 550 EFI with an after tax retail value of $10,420, a Carey Price autographed jersey, and a bike from the 100 Mile

Gear Garage. The cost of a ticket will be $5 each or 3 for $10. The draw date will be race day, November 17, 2011. In the coming days we will be announcing other fundraising events and we look forward to getting on the local radio. Remember you can also donate on our website Click on the donate tab and then on the Rick Hansen Foundation logo and you will be directed to our webpage on the RHF website. Recently, my wife and I were reminiscing

about fishing trips we went on several years ago. Several things happened on this trip which really stand out in our minds. The first thing was launching the canoe at Badger Lake. The canoe is a custom built 18 foot cedar strip by my Uncle Harvey Fraser. When we went to launch the canoe I was holding the stern and my wife had the bow. The hill down to the lake was steep for the last few feet, but not too steep for a wheelchair, or so I thought. As it turned out she said, “Are you okay?” I of course being the

man said, “Yes.” And the next thing I knew my front caster on the wheelchair got hooked in a rut on this hill and I was doing the superman move face first out of my wheelchair. My primary concern of course was not scratching the canoe. Mission accomplished, the canoe was fine and I was a little banged up, my pride more than anything. I still remember Uncle Harvey and Aunt Maria rushing over to offer assistance. The second event we remembered was the trip to Windy Lake up on the Bonaparte

Plateau. I recall we were cuddling one chilly morning in early May, snow still on the ground and we were quietly talking to each other. There were no other campers on the lake or any of the other lakes around us. All of a sudden there was a terrific crashing sound on our tent, totally unexpected. I thought a bear was going to come tearing through the tent. Needless to say Cara and I screamed as we were so startled. I somewhat sheepishly admit that my scream was likely that of a scared child, Cara and

I always say like a little girls scream. Every time we tell someone this story, Cara always has to emphasize the terror in my scream. We always laugh when we tell this story. This weekend I am going jet boating with my good friend Roger Henderson, so I may have a story yet to be written to tell you next week. One more thing Happy Birthday to my Dad Doug Fraser and my brother Simon Fraser, both September birthdays. Live the Dream.

Taxpayers should be treated with fairness Dear Editor, I find it ironic that the city is about to adopt a bylaw on shipping containers.

I have repeatedly requested and also produced video on barking dogs whose owners are either not home or have bad hearing and no such action was taken by the city or regional district to quieting the years of this infernal noise. I am taxpayer and a homeowner and I would like to be treated with such fairness for a peaceful and quiet retirement of working with this community for 40 years, Robert Swears Williams Lake

Lack of candidates could hinder council It looks like the councillor who topped the polls in the last Civic Election, for the City of Williams Lake in 2008, will once again be throwing his Comer Station hat into the political arena. Tom Barr garnered 1981 votes in our last municipal election and my information is that the very experienced councillor is going to try another kick at the municipal election can as he will be having more time on his hands. Tommy comes with a good resume as councillor and I believe he would once again top the election voters list. Surinderpal Rathor, another man with lots of civic election experience was second in number of votes cast for councillors, while newcomer Laurie Walters picked up more

votes than did those other people who had no council experience. Sue Zacharias who had one term as a Regional District Director was next, then Natalie Montoya, she resigned before her term was completed, just edged out Geoff Bourdon for last spot on council. Surinderpal is running again, ( I think he’ll keep running until he is 90 years old), Laurie Walters is going once more, as is Geoff Bourdon, I

believe, although he has not yet formally announced. Not sure which direction Sue Zacharias is headed on the municipal election front., she has done six years of local politics and I think she might just take some time off to work on her businesses. Ivan Bonnell who was a hard worker as councillor and mayor looks like he will be putting some political gas in the engine of the vehicle he is working on, and motoring into this years civic election. Mr. Postman, is running for council, not as mayor. If no more people come forward it looks like the only inexperienced citizen running for council is Steve Forseth, although I suspect he is more up to date on the machinations of local gov-

ernment than most people. If a municipal election were to happen today, only one of the above mentioned would not be on Williams Lake City Council. Where are those who feel that local politics is still an honourable civic duty and want to give back to their community in a political manner? Last election it seemed like a third of the community was going to run for local government office, and now we can barley round up a slate, but it is still early and the whole apple cart could be turned upside down come election day on Nov 19th. The Mayoralty race is still a contest of three, one that features much experience and you can bet this

will be the showcase of the 2011 Civic Elections in Williams Lake this November. In fact, I would suggest this contest could help bring the election turnout to be much higher than normal...I hope. Each of the three candidates, Incumbent Mayor Kerry Cook, former city top bosses, Walt Cobb and Scott Nelson will be lining up their voters and with their backgrounds , they should be significant in numbers, hence the higher numbers casting ballots this election.

All her kittens have since been adopted but Latte is still here awaiting a forever home. Latte isn’t very fond of other cats so a one cat household would be the best for her.

Major benefits can be enjoyed with minor updating ( N C ) — Homeowners across Canada will once again have the chance to qualify for federal energy rebates when completing an energy audit and energy efficiency upgrades to their homes. Some may even qualify for provincial rebates, depending on the province in which they reside. But what is a home energy audit really? A home energy audit can also be referred to as a home energy assessment or whole energy assessment. Dave Walton, director of home ideas at Direct Energy explains that a home energy audit helps identify areas


in the home which can be upgraded to a more energy efficient standard. Areas for improvement can include anything from upgrading insulation in the attic and basement, to sealing basic air leaks—like drafty front doors or weather stripping around windows—to upgrading heating and cooling appliances to a more energy efficiency standard. A Direct Energy home energy assessment will result in a tailored list of suggested energy efficiency upgrades specific to the home. The energy assessment will be comprised of either one or two assessments. For homeowners wishing to

qualify for federal or provincial rebates, they will need to complete the first audit, imple-

ment the suggested retrofits and then schedule the final energy audit. Homeowners who are

How to choose hardwood floors in five easy steps ral colour of each species, their distinctive grain patterns, grades and visual characteristics such as knots, and mineral streaks to find what appeals to you. Also consider the relative hardness of the different species. If you have an active high traffic household or a large pet, harder species may be an option as they will show less dents and traffic patterns.

(NC)—According to hardwood flooring experts, the process of selecting your new floor should lead you through five common steps – choosing your colour, whether you require solid or engineered flooring, the species and grade, width and finally gloss level. 1. Choose your colour. Typically, hardwood flooring manufacturers offer a series of standard popular colour choices. Often these stain colours aren't exactly what discerning consumers are looking for and they spend the next days and weeks searching different manufacturers for that particular elusive stain colour that will harmonize perfectly with their home design.

Visit your local flooring specialist to discover the latest in hardwood floors technologies. 2. Determine whether you're using solid or engineered flooring. Solid flooring must be nailed or stapled into an existing wood subfloor and is only recommended on or above the grade level (soil line)

4. Choose your board width. Narrow boards, or strip flooring, performs well and has a certain appeal particularly in smaller rooms, while wide boards are often perceived as being of higher value, and have greater appeal in larger rooms. Up until now many hardwood dealers

around your home. Engineered flooring's construction allows it to be installed over virtually any type of subfloor whether above, on, or below the grade level. 3. Choose your preferred species and grade. Examine the natu-

while a simulated-oil look reflects approximately eight per cent

recommended against choosing flooring wider than 3 ¼”, because of fear that the floor would develop unsightly and unhealthy gaps over time due to uncontrolled swings in relative humidity within a home. This is no longer the case thanks to the added protection of unique Contour Guard finishing process which envelopes each of its floorboards to eliminate any possible unattractive and unhealthy effects from these gaps.

Looking for the worthy subjects

Anna Roberts at work at her South Lakeside studio.

Natural world inspires artist Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Inspired by the surrounding forest and lake outside her pottery studio on Grebe Drive at the end of South Lakeside, naturalist and artist Anna Roberts will be hosting a show and sale of her latest work this weekend. The annual show and sale, which will be fittingly displayed outdoors, begins Friday at 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and again on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. at Roberts’ home studio located at 2202 Grebe Drive. “In my pottery making, I have tried to reflect the power and grace of form and design found in the natural world,” Roberts explains of her style. “Weathered wood

is just one of the natural surfaces that inspires my work.” This year Roberts has incorporated designs in her hand-built pottery stamped from pieces of actual wood bark with beetle formations and the results are beautiful. “At first, I was experimenting with the red clay found in our field. Then when Vivien Cowan suggested I organize a pottery workshop for people in Williams Lake, I asked Zelko Kujundzic to come and teach us,” Roberts recalls. “After that workshop, a few of us decided to form the Cariboo Potters Guild.” Over the years Roberts said her skill with making pots increased,

and in recent years she decided she could make more interesting forms by using hand-building techniques. “Hand-built pots take more time than wheel thrown ones, but as pottery is my recreation, time is not a factor.” An avid outdoors woman, Roberts literally makes her artwork of vases, plant pots and plates from scratch by digging in the earth for her clay. “Although the Cariboo has clay everywhere, I dig and haul home only clay that gives the results I want when finished.” To learn more about this inspiring local woman and her work, visit Roberts’ show and sale this weekend.

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor To make his showcase at the Station House Gallery something personal and something that will mean something to the community, Casey Bennett is creating a portrait showcase made up of faces from the community who work in what he calls thank-less jobs. He is calling it ‘Faces of Industry’ and it will be made up black and white portraits of men and women who work in industries such as

mining, ranching, farming, and forestry who go unappreciated most of the time. Bennett said the idea came about since he grew up around the different industries, and he wanted this project to be something really personal. “It’s going to be a celebration or a look at men and women who work in mining, mils, ranching and farming and essentially keep the economy going,” said Bennett. “I am sending out

an invitation to community members who might want to be apart of my project.” He is hoping to get things started by the end of the month, and would love to have shoots scheduled for October. Bennett is no amateur, and has worked in the photography busi-

ness for some time and a collection of his work can be seen on his blog at www,casey3photo. Anyone interested in being a part of Bennett’s ‘Faces of Industry” can email him to ask any questions or set up a time for a photo shoot at casey3photo@gmail. com.

Along with new faces, there were also long time volunteers and participants, such as Surinder Aulakh and her two children, Sonia and Corey. Aukah said they have been volunteering and participating in the run for about ten years, and

she said she has been so inspired by Terry Fox and so has her children. “I lost my aunt and two grandmothers to this disease, so it’s for them we do the Terry Fox run every year,” said Aukah. It’s very clear through out the country at this time of year that Terry Fox left a legacy, and touched many Canadians and still does 31 years later.

Shifting Gears offers mountain biking event for families Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor The Boys and Girls Club’s next fundraiser is aptly named “Shifting Gears,” since it is the result of a refocusing of their fundraising methods, and a change from their usual golf tournament. “This year we looked at all the aspects of our organization, and refocused our fundraising effort to better reflect

and Ladders, and Spokey Hallow trails, with a shuttle offered from there to Botanio Park to finish up with a barbeque. “It’s a nice little celebration of mountain biking,” said Johnson. “And a nice way to end our season.’ The Boys and Girls club has a mountain bike group for kids called ‘Sprokids’ for several years, and it is very popular. The cost for registration is $10 per rider, and $25 for a family. “There will also be events set up in the

bike park for those under six or so,” said Johnson. “This event is specifically for families to ride together.” The Boys and Girls Club is adamant on providing the community with fun activities the entire family can participate in, said Johnson. “It’s what we’re all about, and we want to highlight the bike park which is an excellent resource for kids, and their families,” said Johnson. For kids who want to take part in the event, and need a ride,

Johnson said there will be a shuttle that will leave the Boys and Girls Club at 9:30 a.m. on the day of the event. The Boys and Girls Club is also looking for volunteers for the day. “We are specifically looking for individuals who have First-Aid in case anyone needs some attention, and we would need them for about four hours on October 2,” said Johnson.

Courtney Taylor Cariboo Advisor Despite the raining weather yesterday, riders were greeted with smiles, and they were full of smiles themselves regardless of being soaking wet. The 26 riders arrived to town earlier than expected, giving them some time to get changed out of their wet clothes and warm up a bit, they then proceeded to walk their bikes over to Boitianio Park with a bag pipe processional. There were four riders from Williams Lake; along with the RCMP officers there were also paramedics and a media member. Our very own Dave Dickson was the civilian on the ride and to do so he had to raise $5,000, which is double what the others needed to raise. He not only meet that $5,000, but also far exceeded it by

raising over $11, 000. The money goes to help kids with cancer like Nicholas, and to programs like Camp Good Times, which is a camp for kids with cancer and their families. Terry Mitchell, one of the riders, had the opportunity to go the camp a couple years ago and could not say enough good things about the camp. He spoke to the crowd about why the camp needs to continue. Another top fundraiser for the Williams Lake group was Mike Hacker, who raised over $3,500 for the team.

This was his first year riding on the tour, and said he had a great time despite the rainy last day. “The uglier the weather, the better for me,” said Hacker. He said even on the longest day of 200 km, he had no complaints. In the words of the

event organizer, Erin Reynolds, the team just ‘gelled,” and it made for an awesome six days. “We started off a little rugged, but by the second day were clipping along at 30km/h,” said Hacker. Hacker also mentions that the tour is for such a good cause, and riding for Nicholas has made the tough parts easier. “It’s really good for the detachment to get involved in causes like this,” said Hacker. Following the soggy reception at the part, there was a gala at TRU.

New instructor ready to pump you up! Cariboo Memorial Complex is pleased to have Melanie Engelbrecht as a new instructor this fall for two classes, Power Pump for mom and babe, as well as a Power Pump class for adults. Engelbrecht is

originally from South Africa, and moved here three and a half years ago. “We finished our studies, got married, and decided to come see what Canada was all about, ‘ says Engelbrecht. “We like

it so much we don’t want to go back.” Engelbrecht has been teaching fitness classes since 2001, and was a personal trainer and aerobic instructor at one of South Africa’s biggest gyms before coming to Canada.

The class will include resistance, and weight training, as well as cardio boxing. “I guarantee a 500 calorie burn,” she says

Look for Amber’s Zumba Classes this fall Between being a full-time nursing student, and teaching two aquafit classes a week, Amber Dueck is a busy girl and she’s adding another class to her schedule: Zumba. Two-weeks ago she went down to Chilliwack to take a day course to be able to teach Zumba classes at Cariboo Memorial Complex. “Anyone can take it, and it’s lots of fun,” said Dueck. With being a nurse, she says she loves being active and healthy. Amber said it was a toss up for her career nursing or fitness so she chose both and says she loves teaching, which makes her schedule very busy. “I like being able to interact with people, and helping them be more fit,” said Dueck. “I think its great for people to get out and work on being more fit.’ “I just became a group fitness instructor this spring,” said Dueck. “And I am teaching three classes this fall.” Her aquafit classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8pm, and her Zumba is yet to be decided. Zumba is a new addition to the Complex’s fitness programs and is a great work Latin dance workout for all skill levels. Look for Amber’s Zumba class to start up in November.

Rozanne specializes in personalized exercise programs using a variety of training techniques and equipment as well as nutritional plans to help you meet your goals.

Melanie Engelbrecht has been out of her fitness world for the last year, and is ready to jump back in with her two Power Pump classes, which are starting today. She can teach pretty much any class, except for yoga and pilaties, and is excited to get back into fitness after some time off. “I had a baby, and now am getting back into my fitness world,”

Amber Dueck.

Transportation infrastructure hit hard by the flood of 2010 District Manager for the Cariboo. “(But) what’s more staggering is how much damage Mother Nature can do in such a short period of time, in this case 36 hours.� Recalling the days leading up to the September 24 and 25, 2010 flood, Hubner said he was aware of a

forecast for heavy rains for the area through the daily weather report he reviews from Environment Canada. As a result of the forecast and following standard operating procedures, Hubner said the road contractor had stepped up patrols on the travel routes in the area. By Saturday morning Hubner said Pat Gunderson of Interior Roads notified him he had shut down the hill into the valley, which has a 18 per cent grade and can be subject to rock slides, due to falling rock. But by the time geotechnical engineers were flown into the area Sunday morning to access the hill, everyone soon realized the problem was much bigger than anyone could have imaged. “It was apparent at that time all our infrastructure was flooding,�

Hubner said. Within days the ministry had more than 100 staff on hand, while their contractor also pulled in staffing resources of another 100 or more workers to deal with the immediate disaster relief. The highway was reopened within 17 days of the flood, reestablishing a much-needed land line for supply trucks and stranded tourists caught completely offguard by what would be the biggest flood ever recorded in the valley. Hubner said his ministry’s mandate following a disaster is to go in and reestablish public access, and to do so to its pre-event condition as directed by ministry engineering advisors. In the case of the Bella Coola Valley flood, that meant fixing 21 sites where roads and bridges were compromised over an estimated 150 kilometres from the McClinchy area on the Chilcotin Plateau and through the valley to Bella Coola. Hubner said the Hagensborg area was hit hardest by the flood. As many as 45 residents and 18 businesses were affected by flood waters which breached the banks of the nearby Bella Coola River. Hubner said all told three bridges were in need of repair and one old wood bridge on Grant Road had to be completely replaced with an Acrow steel bridge, which was trucked to the top of Heckman Pass and flow in piece-by-piece with a helicopter to the site in the days following the flood. Hubner said the old bridge had three feet of water on its deck and the structure below was mainly washed away.

This is what the Bailey Bridge and Bailey Bridge Campsite along the Bella Coola River looked like a year ago this weekend, after more than 200 millimetres of rain fell in a two-day period over the Bella Coola Valley and Chilcotin Plateau causing a record-breaking flood which took out bridges like this one pictured above. The waters caused more than $40 million in damage to the area's transportation infrastructure. As well, the ministry worked extensively on rip rapping, (or armouring), several tributaries and two locations on the Bella Coola River (at Canoe Crossing and in front of Bailey’s Campsite) to protect the transportation infrastructure and also properly channel water ways. A petition has been circulating in the Hagensborg area because the residents there want rip rap work done at their location as well. Upon questioning the locations of rip rap, Hubner said all work is “based on engineer prescriptions.� To date the cost to the Ministry of Transportation and

Infrastructure is more than $40 million, which Hubner expects will be largely shouldered by the Federal government’s Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements, which is administered by Public Safety Canada and is paid in a cost-sharing manner directly to the affected province or territory. “We’re putting together a package for submission to the Federal government for compensation.� Though the flood was devastating and continues to affect valley residents, Hubner did say one positive outcome of the disaster is that it boosted the local

economy by way of an influx of goods, services and housing needed for workers. Hubner also credits the communities with their quick disaster response. “Although it was a challenging time, the way in which the first responders and local government all worked together in reestablishing land access as well as meeting the community needs was second to none at a local level,� he said. “We had a good relationship before and this just really solidified that.� Remarkably, no lives were lost during the flood of 2010.

Jim Knudsen and Amber Beaven enjoy the river view this summer from their home and business, Rip Rap Campsite in Hagensborg. During the flood of 2010, the couple's home and business were damaged after being flooded under a foot of water and silt.

Ben Hecker of Bailey Bridge Campsites and Cabins shows the high water mark when the nearby Bella Coola River burst its banks in 2010. They have been working throughout the year to repair outhouses, landscaping and cabins knocked off their foundations by the flooding.

One year after the flood Friday it started raining and by Saturday we were running for our lives,” Knudsen said, recounting the events of last September. “I’ve been here my whole life and I’ve never seen anything like it. There was debris everywhere. Firewood, barrels ... we had coho swimming up the highway.” The devastation was a heartbreaking blow for the family, who built their quaint, 26-site campsite business up for the past ten years with their children after a downturn in the local logging industry left Knudsen looking for a new career. “There’s a memory at

every turn,” said Beaven, whose was raised on the picturesque property in downtown Hagensborg. The floods took out a small bridge on the property, as well as ruining the outhouses, shower house and landscaping. “Jim was pumping water out of the front door, and it was coming in the back door,” Beaven said. “It seemed just overwhelming at the time.” Beaven said two sets of guests stayed one week after the floods to help Knudsen and Beaven get back on their feet. “We didn’t even know where to start. They were like angels. They

shoveled the mud out of our house and tried to get the silt off the grass,” Beaven said. “It was incredible what they did for us. We are so grateful to all our friends.” Knudsen said the experience has left him much more empathetic of others he sees struggling with natural disasters in the news, and also thankful. “We didn’t lose any lives so it’s not that bad.” Beaven agrees, and says all the repairs from the flood damage are complete and then some. “It’s probably better than ever now.”

Knudsen said time will tell how the valley’s wildlife will fare the disaster. He said the grizzly bear numbers seem down and some are speculating the animals and their offspring drown in the waters or starved due to their food source, namely salmon, being swept away in the high waters. And everyone is holding their breath regarding next year’s coveted pink salmon run, as many fish eggs are believed to have also been washed away in the flood. “A flood doesn’t fix itself night,” Knudsen. “But there are miracles. We’ll have to wait and see.”

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor For lifelong Bella Coola Valley residents Amber Beaven and Jim Knudsen, the effects of last year’s disastrous record-breaking floods still linger. “Every time it rains I think about it, especially this time of year,” Knudsen said earlier this week from the family’s business, Rip Rap Campsite along the banks of the Bella Coola River. Ironically, it was the lack of rip rap (rocks used to protect shorelines) along the river that saw their home and business in Hagensborg and that of their neighbours submersed under one foot of water after two days of very heavy rains September 24 and 25, 2010. In fact, more than 204 millimetres of rain is said to have fallen in those two days alone, combined with unheard of precipitation in the days leading up to the flood around Anahim Lake on the Chilcotin Plateau. That precipitation fell so much, so quickly that the unsuspecting valley residents below had literally no time to react to the quick-rising streams and Bella Coola River, which rose 16 feet in the flood. “Thursday we were on the river having some of the best fishing ever,

HOME PLAN OF THE WEEK Brought to you by:


Powderking Ski Chalet The Powderking Ski Chalet makes exceptional use of a small footprint and is designed to handle a 300 lb snow load. With two small master bedrooms, 2 kids rooms upstairs, and several options for extra bedrooms in the basement, there’s room for 2 families plus guests. A large mudroom helps keep the main 26’ x 26’ living space open (and provides room for skis and gear). In fact, the great room is as spacious as many larger homes. There’s room for a hot tub on the front deck and a pool table in the basement. There are many options to modify this plan. For example, you could have just a master bedroom and ensuite upstairs and vault a portion of the living/dining area. In the future, it could be made into a retirement home by adding a main level addition with a master bedroom.

Q&A Ask an expert Older mercury thermostats pose threat to the environment (NC)—While many Canadians have switched to environmentally preferred transportation alternatives and are drinking from ecofriendly water canteens, Canadian families and businesses should also be considering the environmental implications of their everyday behaviours within their homes and offices. Something as small as a thermostat can have a negative environmental impact if it is not disposed of properly due to the highly toxic levels of mercury contained within some of these units. Mercury is a potent and hazardous neurotoxin, which is dangerous to the health of people and

wildlife. Older mechanical thermostats can have one to four mercury switches, each containing approximately 2.5 grams of mercury. Just one gram of mercury is enough to contaminate an eight-hectare lake to the point where the fish in that lake are inedible for one full year. A mercury-containing thermostat is not a direct threat to your

health and safety as long as the glass housing for the mercury switch is intact. The risk to the environment and human health comes when end-of-life mercury thermostats are not disposed of responsibly. If an old thermostat is thrown out with regular household or business waste, the mercury ends up in landfill and contaminates our soil

water. In order to prevent mercur y-containing thermostats from causing distress to the environment, The Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) has developed a thermostat recovery program called Switch the ‘Stat to encourage Canadians to replace their old thermostats with energyefficient, programmable units to help reduce

energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, while ensuring that their old devices do not end up in landfills. Together with their network of registered contractors and wholesalers, HRAI ensures that old thermostats are properly disposed of to keep mercury from leaking into our environment.

featured EVENT O.A.P.O. Tea Celebrating International Day of Older Persons. Sunday October 2ndat 2p.m. there will be an afternoon tea and goodies. The admission is free, and all seniors 60+ are encouraged to attend the tea that will be catered by the Williams Lake Lioness Club at the Senior’s Activity Centre.



I Don’t Know How She Does It Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker) devotes her days to her job with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night she goes home to her adoring, recentlydownsized architect husband Richard (Greg Kinnear) and their two young children. It’s a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate’s acerbic best friend and fellow working mother Allison (Christina Hendricks) performs on a daily basis, and that Kate’s super-brainy, child-phobic young junior associate Momo (Olivia Munn) fully intends to avoid. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he’s been hoping for—and both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate’s charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan), who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.

NEW vIDEO RELEASES bridesmaids Annie (Kristen Wiig) is her best friend Lillian’s maid of honor, but her life unravels as she leads Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and a group of colorful bridesmaids down the road to matrimony. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.

Last Week’s Answers

Keep your thoughts and opinions to yourself and you won’t get dragged into an unsavory debate. You will get bored quickly, so make sure that you have scheduled enough activity to hold your interest. You can make adjustments in your domestic scene this week. Turn things around, make sure that they do their share. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

A really corny way to barbecue There is nothing more tastefull than a fresh young sweet corn on the cob cooked on the barbecue. There are several ways you can cook corn and all methods make this fall treat as good as it gets. You can cook corn in their shucks, corn cooked in just the inner silk, naked corn cooked on the grill or corn done in tin foil. For corn cooked in their shucks, after you have soaked the cobs for up to one hour, just toss them onto your preheated BBQ and after about 15 minutes of closed lid cooking they will be done. This is the most effortless method

and will always produce a create cobs, but it wasn’t look barbecued. The ears simply steam inside the outer layer and the end result is not that drastically different to a boiled or steamed cob of corn. For corn cooked in just the inner shucks you need to peel off the

outer layer, leaving only the inner silk as a coating. These will require a little more attention on the grill and will need to be turned occasionally to avoid burning. You should also close the lid for this method. This method will protect the corn from the direct heat of the grill, but will allow some of that smoky heat through for direct contact with the corn. I like this way to do corn and that is to simply shuck the corn and simply grill the exposed corn directly over the heat of the grill. This manner of cooking corn requires the most attention and will result in

Spending too much time talking to friends or relatives could easily turn into a debate that could lead to estrangement. Romantic opportunities will flourish through travel or communication. You may find it difficult to discuss personal matters with family members. Go out with friends. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday.

Interaction with colleagues will only be upsetting. Your personal life is going through a state of confusion. You need to start planning that vacation. Relatives may play an important role in your personal life. Your lucky day this week will be Wednesday.

Positive changes regarding your personal status are evident. Look into ways that you can make extra cash. Don’t rely on others to handle the workload. Unexpected bills will be impossible for you to pay. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday.

Plan your day thoughtfully, but try not to rely on others. Think about your priorities. Make sure that you have all the pertinent facts before taking action. Love can be heightened if you sit down and discuss your future plans. Your lucky day this week will be Monday.

a more blacked cob of corn. this blackening is not a bad deal, and as long as you keep a close watch and turn often, this corn will tasty nutty, and smoky sweet. You should also keep the lid closed and need to turn about every minute or so. The other way to cook the corn is to shuck it and stick on a little butter with some

herbs finely chopped, put some tin foil tightly around the corn and cook for about ten minutes and voila, a nice tasty cob that is easy to cook and great to taste. Try some Soda Creek corn, it is as good as it gets. Corn on the cob, a great way to usher in fall, starting this Friday. Bye for now and Goood Cooking.

It might be best to spend time fixing up your premises and making changes that will be appreciated. Romance could develop through social activities or short trips. Finish those changes you’ve been talking about making to your residence. Enjoy taking courses or lecturing others. Your lucky day this week will be Tuesday. They will jump at the chance to do something without you if it sounds like more fun. Your ability to charm others will put you in the limelight at social functions. Don’t give in too quickly. Your self confidence will attract members of the opposite sex. Your lucky day this week will be Saturday.

You should visit a friend or relative who hasn’t been feeling up to par. Be sure to double-check the house on your way out. Don’t divulge secret information. Children could cost you more than you can afford. Your lucky day this week will be Monday.
