Let me assure you that when you get to the stress overload stage, it is no fun at all and I am the kind of guy that I usually like to have fun. When you go into stress overload from overexposure to long term stress, you suffer from depression and depletion of a number of hormones which affect you physically. .These changes may show up as significant changes in sleep patterns, loss of energy, increased and decreases in appetite, mood swings, ongoing anger, an inability to focus and get things done, as well as, an overall feel- ^ I am not God.

We had the opportunity to help out at the Quesnel Fall Fair, which took place on August 23, and 24, at the Alex Fraser Park. Our first responsibility was to judge the fur and feather displays. This was a great experience, as we learned many facts about different breeds, of rabbits, and at the same time, we got to observe many rabbits and poultry being displayed. Later that morning, we were invited to participate in the official open- Quesnel to match the We were mtroduced by Bob Graham and he mentioned that we were going to be selling 50/50 tickets to raisemoney for the Fall Fair Association.

This was a special event, as it was dedicated to the pioneer families who have lived in Quesnel for many generations, some families for over a hundred years. A t this ceremony, these families were acknowledged and given out awards. After the opening ceremony, we walked over to the logger sporting events. We would like to thank Diane Graham for being our chaperon for this weekend. We would also like to thank Bob and Diane Graham for the use of their motor home. We had a great time this weekend and we look forward to our future community events.

"It was really hard to narrow down the choices," said Film Club's Trish Fuccennecco, "There were so many excellent films to choose from." The independent filrn industry has grown tremendously over the last few years, and Fuccennecco has notices a dramatic increase in the offerings over the nine years the F i l m C l u b has been around. She speculated the reasons for this could be better funding available and more exposure for the various country's films. "For me, these films offer something fresh, something new," she said. "Hollywood doesn't offer that. Maybe it's because the independent film producers can take more risks."

Being able to depict what you see and render it on paper is a skill called drawing. Taking the drawing and making it into a painting is another skill. In isolation, these skills may exist without the other, but success requires a foundation in both arenas. Learning how to see what you are looking at and putting that down on paper using lines is how I define drawing. The dictionary gives a variety of definitions, but the one I THE ARTS like best is "the art of making a figure, plan or sketch using lines."

M i l l s set u p Over 230 people were ' in Barkerville to strike it rich last weekend. The seventh annual Canadian National Goldpanning Championships on August 23 were a huge success despite the extreme weather challenges. "Even with the weather as bad as it was, the event was a big success," said organizer Scott Rea. "There was snow on some of the mountains around Barkerville that day. It really took them back to what it was like in the 1800s. There were no excuses, you just had to go and do it." The weather didn't stop people from coming out to watch, either. "We were so busy, it was just crazy," said Rea. " Y o u could see that people would watch one event and then go warin up before they came back to watch another." Clare Hewson of Vernon became the Canadian National Champion when he retrieved all five flakes from a four and half gallon bucket in five and a half minutes. "When it comes to the championship you get a bucket of unwashed, nasty gravel," said Rea. "In order to get through that really good stuff you really have to know how to gold pan." Katelyn Escott of Wells took first place in the child category. Alicia Scott of Slave Clare Hewscn of Vernon panned his way to the top at the seventh annual Canadian National Goldpanning Championships in Barkerville last weekend. Photo Lake, A B , was first in the youth category. Jennifer Holmes of Wells was the adult winner. Diane Fulbrook of Vernon was the senior champion. Dave Coupland of Nisku, A B , took top honours in the professional category. Rod Scott of Spruce G r o v e , A B , won the grudge match. "When all the events are done the grudge match starts," said Rea. "The competitors have five minutes to find as much of the lost gold that they can." Ted Turner of Lumby, Marsha Rea and Scott Rea of Quesnel won the team event. Elton Carey of Brownborg, Quebec, was first in the sportsman category. contributed "I travel the whole circuit and Elton is the most dedicated competitor I have ever seen," said Rea. "He starts in Cherryville in M a y , heads to Edmonton in July, Taylor B . C . , after that and then finishes off here in Barkerville." Competitive goldpanners can now take a break in the off season before the circuit starts up again in May. c l u b f o r k i d s C A S C A R drivers hit b a d l u c k Young hockey fans are being given another way to get closer to their favourite players. The Quesnel Millionaires Kid's Club is just getting started and it is time to sign up. A registration table will be set up at the Maple Park Mall on Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Kids will have a chance to get autographs from some of their favourite players and even see how they shape up in a shoot out. Registration for the club is only $15 on Tuesday instead of the regular $20 fee. Also on Tuesday, <ids can enter draws for tickets and t-shirts. Kid's Club registration includes a membership card, subscription to a Millionaires Kid's Club monthly newsletter, birthday and Christmas cards signed by the Mills, discounts on selected Mills merchandise, $1 off child game day tickets, official club t-shirt, a pancake breakfast once a month with players and coaches at Denny's and a tour of the dressing room. Kid's Club members will also receive discounts at A & W , McDonald's and Outer Limits Hair Styling. With only a few laps to go, Quesnel's C A S C A R drivers looked as if they would both be on the podium. Don Sales and Ron Larson were in Calgary last weekend at the Race City Speedway. Sales qualified in sixth place before lining up for the main event. With only six laps to go, he was running in third. "It was going really well for us," said Mike Ernst a member of Sales' pit crew. Sales and the fourth place car, Carl Harr of St. A l bert, were coming up on the lap car. Harr went to the outside and Sales went to the inside. "Harr just touched the lap car," said Ernst. "The lap car came out sideways hitting us in the right rear and spinning us out in front of Harr. He t-boned us and ended our day." Sales finished in 10th out of the 16 car field with a lot of damage to his car. "There is a lot of damage," said Ernst. "Luckily, the frame is okay, but everything from the spindle to the radiator is bent." "We didn't think we had a podium car going into the race, but with fast pit stops and tweaks on the chassis here and there it looked like we had a podium spot wrapped up," said Sales. "That's when the burden of bad luck bit us again." It was a similar story for Larson who came out fast and qualified in fourth. He was experimenting with a new Dodge Intrepid. His brother Richie was also in Calgary driving Larson's original Monte Carlo. Larson was running in second for a while and then moved into the lead. It looked like he would stand on the podium again until his brakes faded. The Larson family still made it onto the podium though, Richie took third place. "We were taking a chance to run a different car since we were in second for points," said Larson. "It is too bad that we lost the brakes, but-overall we are happy with the day." The next race for Sales and Larson is next weekend, September 7, in Wetaskiwin. It will be the last chance for the drivers to move up before the eighth and final race on September 21 in Vernon. That race will determine the points final for the C A S C A R West Series.
