A bushel of raspberries to the person who stole two pictures from the ladies’ washroom at Trattorias.
Getting pretty low, aren’t we? If anyone sees two picture frames about eight inches square with a two-inch frame all around, with a bit of a leather look to them, know that they are stolen.
They might even still have the pictures in them — two scenes of Italy of houses on a cliff overlooking the sea.
If you liked them so much you should have come and talked to me. I would have made you copies of them.

The Social Planning Council of Williams Lake and Area would like to send a big bouquet of roses to the Chamber of Commerce for allowing us to be involved in the planning of the two all-candidates meetings Oct. 27 and Oct. 28.
We knew that our volunteer group did not have the capacity at present to organize and manage such a meeting, and so we asked the Chamber if we could send some questions for candidates to answer about the social needs of the community. To our delight, the Chamber leadership invited us to participate more fully in planning the events, and were very pro-active in seeking broader community representation.
When asked in the Tribune about working with the Social Planning Council, Chamber representative Scot Durward pointed out that “social and livability issues are very important for the health of the entire community, including businesses.” There is no natural division between business and social interests — a good community which supports all its members is likely to also be one which develops a stable, diversified economic base. We look forward to working with the Chamber on other issues, such as sustainable practices and retention strategies.
A special bouquet of flowers goes to Chamber of Commerce staff Jaylyn Byer, who provided great administrative support, and Claudia Blair, executive director.
