RCMP HANDOUT

ALISTAIR TAYLOR/THE MIRROR

Five kilograms of cocaine, along with $85,000, in cash was seized by RCMP in the Campbell River area on April 9.

An old growth hemlock that fell into the river during the March 12 windstorm poses a hazard for inner tubers on the Campbell River.

Five kilos of coke, thousands in cash seized

Hazard: Removal would be tricky

Three men are facing trafficking charges after Mounties seized five kilograms of cocaine and approximately $85,000 in cash on April 9. The busts were made by Campbell River RCMP with assistance from Comox Valley officers. Police did not say where the drug busts

Continued from A1

It’s going to be a while before anyone can move the log, if it, in fact, can be moved, Turko said. The tree is anchored to shallow water on the north side of the river and in the middle and south side. There are branches that point downstream that have wedged into the river bottom and are holding the tree fast. Removing the tree will take a tremendous effort that is not without some danger. The best plan would be to swing the front of the tree back towards the north shore to align it with the bank and thus create some

fish habitat. But to swing it would require somebody on the trunk cutting the branches away. Once the branches are almost cleared, the tree would likely start to move with the force of the river current putting anybody on it in danger. Plus, the tree needs to be anchored to a large enough tree on the shore in order to stop it from shifting during a removal operation but there are few trees larger than the one in the river. A helicopter could be brought in to do that but that is an expensive proposition and something that some official agency would have to take on. Turko has con-

tacted BC Hydro and BC Parks but has not had a response as to whose responsibility it would be to remove it, if anyone’s. The fact is that trees falling into the river is a natural process. It happens all the time. This one happens to be particularly large and inconveniently located on a popular recreational body of water. A similar situation on a side channel of the Campbell River just missed being a tragedy last summer when some youths riding inner tubes were swept into a fallen tree just days after Turko

had issued a similar warning. Once word of the near miss got out, swift action was taken by the community and the youths to move it. The tree on the main channel of the Campbell now, however, is a different proposition. It is significantly bigger. Turko said as a river guide, he will be able to avoid the tree as will accomplished kayakers but he’s concerned about kids and the public going for a float down the river unaware of the potential hazard and the skill needed to negotiate the obstacle.

took place other than officers executed search warrants at several residences in the Campbell River area. As of Wednesday, charges have not been laid and no names have been released. In addition to the drugs and the money, three vehicles were also seized.

Council: Planned protest march didn’t happen budget. “I’m worried about all of you, what you’re getting in to,” Murphy said. “Mayor Jakeway, I voted for you because of your tax platform (zero increase). If you have to do a tax increase, don’t make it 13.6, that’s ridiculous. Just work with us.” Norm Nalleweg said council should honour the mayor’s mandate. “I strongly believe in a municipal election we vote for the mayor’s platform and his platform was to keep the taxes in line,” said Nalleweg, who moved to Campbell River just four months ago. “Had I known (about the tax increase) I might not have moved into the city limits.” But not everyone was on the same page.

Carol Dwyer was the lone Campbell Riverite to speak in favour of the tax increase. “I’m a pensioner on a fixed income, I cannot see Campbell River not having snow plows,” she said. “I think we need to keep the services we have and I applaud those who support the tax increase.” Dwyer returned to her seat to a round of boos, which prompted Coun. Claire Moglove to ask the mayor to remind people to be respectful. Jakeway also asked the gallery to refrain from applause, which seemed to fall on deaf ears as every other speaker was treated to cheering and clapping from the spectators. Some who spoke against the tax

increase, also called for council to work together. Councillors are split on the tax increase, which passed by a 4-3 vote at a finance committee meeting March 27. The increase still has to go through a council meeting. “Please no more fouron-three’s,” Sullivan said. “Get together, work together.” Perhaps the most impassioned plea came from Manfred Kling. “To best serve our city at this point in time, you must unite. You must let go of your individual positions no matter how much you believe you are right,” Kling said. “Neither

the group of four or the group of three can afford to win this debate by a one vote margin. “Such a win will not address the fiscal reality but will sow the seed of discontent. I therefore ask you to put your differences aside, rise above the melee and provide the leadership that only a unified council can provide.” Kling acknowledged council is at a critical juncture that will set the tone for the city. “I think it is with this issue, at this point in time, that this council will either rise to the challenge – and maybe even become a great

council – or when you will collectively fail us,” Kling said. “It’s been my experience when people work with each other, their best is much, much better than when they work against each other.” Jakeway, who put out the call three weeks ago for taxpayers to rise up and revolt against the tax increase, said he was pleased to see so many Campbell Riverites in attendance and welcomed all the input. The budget will be up for discussion and first three readings by council next Tuesday and if all three readings pass, it could be adopted as soon as May 1.

you’re putting forth your best efforts but please have another look on our behalf,” said Mark Sullivan,who ran for city councillor in last November’s election. About 90 people filled the council chambers; spilling out onto chairs in the foyer attended the meeting. A march from Robert Ostler Park to city hall, similar to the April 3 protest, was planned on Facebook but never materialized. Only six people showed up at the longhouse in the park. “Last (Tuesday) night it just didn’t happen,” said Philip Hicks, who organized the demonstration. “It was my feeling that having 100-150 people at the last one that we would have to have 3-to-400 people this time to be a success. “So from the point of view of gathering momentum, it failed.” Hicks would like to see people come out for next week’s meeting. “If you don’t finish the game, there’s no point in even starting,” he said. Instead of an organized march in the rain, people signed up before and during the meeting to say their piece. Kevin Raftery, the first to speak, said the city could learn a lesson from its citizens. He explained how after retiring in 2004, his family’s income was

split in half. The solution was to change his lifestyle “The sooner we adapt to living within our means, the better,” Raftery said. “We have the potential to become a great retirement community but we won’t attract residents if our taxes are too high for pensioners.” Mary Raftery explained how a tax increase impacts her. “To cover a tax increase in my household means a lot,” she said. “It’s a prescription not being filled, a tank of gas, or a pair of runners for my daughter at school.” Don McDermid began his presentation to council with a bang. “I’m going to pull a Judge Judy. Have you got your listening ears on?” he asked council. “I see a bunch of followers here on council and one or two leaders.” McDermid claims he pays 30 per cent more in property taxes than when he lived in North Vancouver, where services such as garbage and recycling pick-up were more frequent. He also questioned city spending. “On Highway 19A we’ve had two crews replacing gravel. It might be a project worth doing if we were flush with money, but we’re not,” McDermid said. Michele Murphy, a business owner, urged council to go back to the “drawing board” and re-consider the

Beware the Flower Clown and Other Roadside 2X14 2X14 Characters I would imagine that your opinion of police traffic surveillance tactics probably depends a lot on whether you are the recipient of a ticket or not because of them. You may have actually seen Corporal Smith in Nanaimo dressed up as the Easter Bunny TYEE TYEE or Constable Martell of Kelowna wearing a hoodie and holding up a sign made of cardboard. TheyCHEV certainly got to see a lot of CHEV traffic violators and provided information to pick up teams a bit further down the road. They should not be doing enforcement unless they are in uniform! Undignified... civil societies depend on fairness and good examples. This sounds a bit like sour grapes to me; the police should stand out so I have a chance to avoid being caught is what I might be hearing in these comments. In a playful mood one day I stopped my fully marked police car on the side of the highway, turned on all the emergency lights and “hid” behind it to work laser speed enforcement. The traffic flow was moderate and I seldom waited long for the next violator to come along. Perhaps I needed a sign announcing speed enforcement ahead as an additional warning? Laugh or cry over it, disguise is a valid form of law enforcement investigation and I see no reason that police should feel embarrassed to use it or that the public should require them to stop. It is not unfair or uncivilized, but it could be a little undignified. To those officers who are willing to be laughed at for the cause, my hat is off to you!

Our View

What about the wildlife? The world’s thirst for oil is poised to turn the current trickle of crude through Vancouver’s harbour into a gusher. Kinder Morgan Canada announced this month it will seek to twin its We say: Public Trans Mountain Pipeline between has a big appetite northern Alberta and Burnaby, increasing its current 300,000-barrelfor ensuring per-day capacity to as much as 850,000. That means the number of protection tankers filling up in Burnaby could hit 360 in 2016 – five times more than the record 69 crude tankers in 2010. Good for the economy, yes. But the question on many people’s lips involves a

frightening scenario: What if there is a spill? Certainly, many safeguards are already in place. But there’s a hole in the prevention and remedy protocols big enough to sail a sizable ship through. What about wildlife? According to Coleen Doucette, vice-president of the Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C., there are no laws compelling companies to clean up birds and animals impacted by a spill. Oil spill response usually involves containing spills with booms and collecting the oil using skimmers. If the responsible party requests a wildlife rescue response, Western Canada Marine Response Corporation may manage it or hire a professional organization to perform it. The problem is, not

all responsible parties choose to respond to oiled wildlife. This loophole is particularly troubling in light of recent news that marine mammals are making a comeback in the Salish Sea after decades of decline. Thanks to conservation efforts, sea lions, seals, orcas, humpback and fin whales, dolphins and elephant seals are dramatically increasing in numbers. Our pristine coastlines and their animal inhabitants are among B.C.’s most precious resources. If the province does agree to open its shores to more tanker traffic, protection for our marine animals and waterfowl must be part of the equation. – Black Press

Letters

The good old days Logging and fishing were the primary means of making a living in this neck of the woods, back in the good old days. The fishing vessel, BCP 45 is housed in our Maritime Heritage Centre and was given national prominence when the Bank of Canada used its image on the back of the $5 bill between 1973 to 1986. This vessel was a typical seiner for the decades from 1930 to 1970. Most of the work was done by hand, setting the net, brailing the fish into the hold and tackling all the other tasks involved in operating the boat. It was efficiently & successfully operated by 5 crew members. During the days of big timber, two fallers worked together to take down big trees, 6-10 feet in diameter, by chopping out the undercut with axes, establishing the back cut with a long crosscut saw and then driving steel wedges with sledge hammers to tip the tree over. Two men, with some hand tools, falling large trees, by the sweat of their brows. The workers made their wages and the employers reaped their handsome financial rewards. Continued on A2

Don’t pooh-pooh this idea before you give it a chance

Paul Rudan No, really

It won’t be long before the heavy machinery moves in along with the demo crew. What took half a century to build will be dismantled in months. What was once a beehive of activity, providing well-paying jobs for more than 1,000 people in this community, will be gone forever. Gone, just like the big sawmill that once sat beside the Elk Falls pulp and paper mill. The other big sawmill just down the highway is also long-gone too. It’s the humbling reality of today’s global era that Campbell River’s former industrial economy is obliterated with cranes, backhoes, jackhammers and sledgehammers. The demolition crews make their

money and then move on to the next town to get rid of another “dinosaur.” I never thought this would happen, though, to the mill at Elk Falls. In the mid-1990s I toured the operation and its newly-installed infrastructure: An effluent treatment plant. That, I wrongly believed, would give this mill a leg up on other aging mills along our coast. Better still, the owners of the day built the facility large enough to accommodate all of the city’s sewage too. But then the plan hit a snag, namely the provincial environment ministry. In a nutshell, the ministry needed to know exactly who was pumping chlorine into Discovery Passage, and how much.

I’m no scientist, but it seemed to me that if the city’s outfall was measured for a year, along with the mill’s, you would have a pretty good idea of who’s contributing what to the effluent. And, if there happened to be a significant spike in chlorine output, the obvious culprit would be the mill, not some home-keeper dumping too much bleach into the wash. But what do I know? In the end, the mill built its treatment plant because it had to and Campbell River spent tens of millions building its own treatment plant right across the street. I figure with the two plants operating, we could treat sewage for a community of more than 100,000 people. So that got me thinking, why

couldn’t sewage from other communities be shipped to Campbell River in a tanker, docked at Elk Falls, and then pumped through the treatment facility? You think Victoria might consider such an option rather spending more more than a billion dollars for its own treatment plant? I’m sure the regular group of naysayers would, pardon the pun, poohpooh such an idea, but there are far worse things shipped through Discovery Passage every day. Treating sewage properly is certainly less irksome than a pole-peeling plant and, most importantly, it’s guaranteed income...forever. paulr@campbellrivermirror.com

It’s a question of tax dollars efficiency Continued from A1

It is with some “taxpayer” dismay that I drive by 7+ yellow clad city employees, working on our main drag repaving small diamond shaped patches around each manhole cover. I am not saying the job doesn’t need to be done but making the observation that it seems like “one heck of a lot of workers” for that particular job. I’d be interested in knowing the hourly rate this maintenance work is costing. Is it considered an efficient use of tax dollars? This is not a criticism of the folks doing the task but a question for the managers and financial planners of the operation. D. McGillis Campbell River

Submissions to the Mirror

FOLLOW US ON...

Can we not find a better way? As far as anyone who is not involved in the actual process can determine, the city council and staff appear to have done a good job of getting us through the impact of the mill closure. And, I am very proud of the city which, with the help of the newspapers, has been willing to listen, engage and encourage debate on the issue of tax increases. I can only think that this is healthy and can cause a greater sense of involvement for the general public. The best result would be that it will also encourage a moderated way of understanding pri-

orities and making decisions for elected council members and city staff. Can we not establish a better way to deal with city costs than resorting to annual tax increases? A great deal of effort has gone in to advertising Campbell River as a good place to retire. People facing retirement or retired are exposed cost increases everywhere. While some have indexed pensions, many are stretched to meet demands. A city tax increase which may look to be ‘only a few hundred dollars’ is joined by increases from many

other sources. It is discouraging to think that our way of life will be diminished and restricted by continual cost increases. It may be that council members and/ or city staff have assets and incomes beyond the population mean, and may need to have a different perspective on people’s needs, and ultimately, what is good for our community. However this year’s budget battle is resolved, I remain appreciative of council’s work on our behalf. Ruth McMonagle Campbell River

Coal project the one economic ray of light I am a small business owner in Campbell River. On a daily basis I see 2-3 hopeful faces coming in with resumes. These people vary from young people right out of high school, to middle aged people forced to change careers. These people have heard there is a shortage of trades people, and have paid their hard earned money to educate themselves. The fact is that in BC we do not have jobs for these people. Unlike Alberta, we have seen a steady

decline in industry and good paying jobs. We can all list several businesses that have closed down in the last 5-10 years just in our local area, Timberwest Sawmill, Catalyst Paper – Elk Falls, and Field Sawmill, just to name a few. The one light of hope we have in our area is the Raven Underground Coal Project. This project is committed to providing approximately 300 well paying jobs to local people, and approximately 450 indirect jobs. Yes,

that is correct the opportunity for 750 well paying jobs on central Vancouver Island. Imagine the possibility of not having to leave your family to go work in Alberta. That could once again be a reality for hundreds of people. I am proud to say that my family is supported by environmentally responsible resource based companies such as Quinsam Coal, NVI Mining, Grieg Seafood and Western Forest Products. Sandra Karason

SHANTERO PRODUCTIONS RON JAMES

Council gave the green light to a neighbourhood strategy to improve Campbellton despite not having the staff the city manager says is necessary for the project. Coun. Ron Kerr, liaison to lobby group Campbellton First, asked city staff two weeks ago to look into an in-house strategy where city staff would work with Campbellton residents and businesses to beautify and improve the neighbourhood. City manager Andy Laidlaw reported back there is not enough staff available to do the work. “What I want to caution council about is, to undertake a neighbourhood plan would be relatively onerous,” Laidlaw said at Tuesday’s council meeting. “Staff do not have the resources to do that at this time, given our priorities.”

Campbellton First met with senior management at city hall last fall and agreed on a three-day charrette – an intensive planning session hosted in Campbellton for citizens, designers and city staff to collaborate on developing an improvement strategy. At the time, Laidlaw said the city had a land planner, who has now left the position. A second staffer in the land department is also no longer with the city. And a third planner is just filling a temporary position and will not be returning. Campbellton busin e s s ow n e r s J i m DeHar t and Brian Shaw appeared before council on Tuesday and voiced their disappointment with the turn of events. “We’re very disappointed in the report to council,” DeHart said. “We think it’s time to step up and prove to us the commitment you made to Campbellton last year was more

than just (to win the election).” DeHart proposed a working group that would include a combination of community volunteers and city assistance. He said Campbellton First would like to host six formal meetings but would need city staff to provide advice. “We’re asking for $400 per meeting to pay for six formal meetings we need to hold in our neighbourhood,” DeHart said. “In total, $2,400 plus staff time plus mapping and materials needed for the planning process.” Shaw is frustrated the city won’t make a commitment. “We said we can do this as volunteers and we’ve been shut down, completely,” he said. “We’ve put together a good project here, we’re doing the work, we’ve got the volunteers to do this, so come on guys. Let’s get on board to make Campbellton a little bit better than it is. No more pussy foot-

ing around, please.” Laidlaw said the city could help with a charrette hosted by Campbellton First and could help advance the project if and when the city has the staff. That prompted Kerr to put forward the motion to have staff prepare the Neighbourhood Action Strategy, which was passed unanimously by council. The strategy will have a budget of $3,000, taken from the council contingency fund, and is to be implemented no later than Dec. 31 of this year. “There are a lot of projects happening in Campbell River right now, but I don’t think Campbellton should be shoved to the bottom of the list again,” Kerr said. “I think there’s an opportunity in Campbellton and I think an opportunity to do more with less. Campbell Riverites are doing that right now and I think city hall can too.”

Children and families struggle with poverty KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

One in four Campbell River children live in families struggling to stay above the poverty line, according to the latest statistics compiled by an Early Childhood Education initiative. Dr. Tanya Flood, who spoke to council Tuesday night on behalf of Success by 6, laid out some illustrative numbers. “Twenty-five per cent of children live in income-assisted families and twenty-five per cent of School District 72 families make a combined income of less than $30,000 each year,� Flood said. On top of that, last year one in four children in Campbell River were not developmentally ready to learn when they started kin-

dergarten, according to Flood. “This is disturbing that children are not developmentally ready,� Flood said. Vulnerability rates in city neighbourhoods are also above the provincial average. Campbell River children face vulnerability rates between 22 and 39 per cent, which is above provincial targets. “Overall the province sets goals to not have more than 15 per cent vulnerability,� Flood said. The most vulnerable neighbourhood in town? The Rockland area. Early Years Development Indicator results show that’s because high housing costs pushed low income families into one neighbourhood, which separated them

from the services and resources designed to support them. Flood said one explanation for increasing low-income rates is the high cost of living. “Over the last 30 years, the Canadian economy has improved and it has expanded but at the same time we found the standard of living is decreasing for the generation raising young children,� said Flood. “If you adjust for inflation, incomes per household were raised by less than five per cent while housing costs have increased by 70 per cent. Our young families in Campbell River are being squeezed because now two people have to earn salaries to have what one salary could provide years ago.� Success by 6’s presentation was picked up on by people attend-

ing Tuesday’s meeting to protest city council’s proposed budget. Norm Nalleweg, one of 26 people who spoke as delegation separate from Success by 6’s, said council’s proposed 13.6 per cent residential tax increase will only increase the burden on young families. “The doctor earlier this evening said 25 per cent of children live in poverty,� Nalleweg said. “This is only going to make our situation worse.

Polio eradication: walk, run and roll KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

C a m p b e l l R ive r Rotary Clubs are joining in the fight to eliminate polio for the second time in as many years. Both the daybreak

and noon hour clubs are hosting a run, walk and stroll Sat., May 5 to raise money for the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. This year, Rotary Clubs reached out to local schools to make the event an even big-

The six kilometre walk runs from Spirit S q u a re t o Ro t a r y Beach, before winding up at Spirit Square. Fantillo said proceeds from the event go towards polio vaccinations, which are available in nearly every

country to prevent the crippling disease. “There are four countries left in the world which don’t have the polio vaccine,” Fantillo said. “They say one per cent of the world is left, so if we eliminate the one per cent, it’s gone.” Nigeria, Pakistan,

Afghanistan and India all still have cases of polio. “We have to continue (fundraising) until there are no cases reported,” Fantillo said. Polio is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus. It invades the nervous

TENORE 3X4 3X4

system and can cause irreversible paralysis in a matter of hours. There is no cure once the virus is contracted, which makes early prevention vital. Registration for the walk begins at 9 a.m. in Spirit Square and the event kicks off at 10 a.m.

Cortes writer’s new book explores 50-year-old Cold War-era mystery It is no secret that the Cold War was synonymous with covert military operations. Few people know, for example, that massive US Air Force B-36 intercontinental bombers

– referred to as “Peacemakers” – regularly flew mock bombing exercises over major US cities, including San Francisco. It was on one of these training runs that tragedy

struck B-36 Bomber 075. Just before midnight on Feb. 13, 1950, three engines on Bomber 075 caught fire over Vancouver Island. The crew was ordered to

jump, and the plane ditched somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Nearly four years later, the wreck of the bomber was found by accident in a remote location in the coastal

TELUS PROCESS

mountains of British Columbia, three hours’ flying time in the opposite direction of where it was supposed to have crashed. How did it get there? After years of

silence, the United States finally admitted that Bomber 075 had been carrying a Mark IV nuclear bomb. But was the bomb dropped and exploded over the Inside Passage or was

it blown up at the aircraft’s resting place in the mountains? In his new book, Lost Nuke: The Last Flight of Bomber 075, Dirk Septer investigates the final hours of Bomber 075 and attempts to unravel the real story behind more than 60 years of secrecy, misdirection and misinformation. Dirk Septer is an aviation historian and photographer. He was the lead investigator in the television documentary Lost Nuke and has published over 100 articles in aviation magazines in Canada and the UK and for years wrote a regular column called “North of Sixty” in Canadian Aviator. Dirk lives on Cortes Island.

Lost Mummies of New Guinea a National Geographic Explorer documentary shot in March 2010. The film follows an expedition of three Westerners into the land of the Anga people – possibly the last culture with living memory of human mummification and where some plan to revive the tradition. Facing Ali is not just a movie about one of the greatest boxers of all time but a look at the culture that went with it. Ten of Muhammad Ali’s former rivals pay tribute to the threetime world heavyweight champion. Shortlisted for an Academy Award for Best Documentary, it includes lots of stock footage and interviews. Kerr will introduce the film and then do a Q&A afterwards. Tickets can be purchased through the Tidemark Theatre for $10.

It was during a visit to Campbell River when he and his wife fell in love with the coastal community and decided this is where they would retire. But it was also during one of his cadet i n s p e c t i o n s wh e n Fraser noticed the first sign of Parkinson’s. “It was a general salute and I noticed my hand shaking…then I was having problems writing,” he says. Fraser was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 12 years ago, but it didn’t stop him from performing his many duties at the Food Bank – in 2003 he was named Campbell River’s Citizen of the Year. Since then, the symptoms have slowly progressed, as Beverly observes the subtle changes. “I’ve noticed some changes, mostly the tremor,” she says. “He doesn’t do as much writing and he gets more anxious.” Fraser says he tends to be quieter than he Continued on Page 21

Putting is the finicky part of golf. Which way does the green break? Is it faster in the afternoon? Which way does the grass lie? Are there specks of dirt or leaves than can impede the ball’s progress to the hole? Like any dedicated golfer, those are just a few of the things Fraser Steenson takes into account when he’s putting. But Fraser, 65, has to wonder about one more intangible most golfers never have to worry about: Will his hands start to shake due to the tremors caused by Parkinson’s disease, just as he’s taking his backswing? “Sometimes they’re steady and sometimes not,” Fraser explains, as he holds up both hands to demonstrate. The tremor in both hands is obvious, but

Fraser isn’t embarrassed, and he’s never hidden the fact that he has Parkinson’s. “I’m so proud of him. He told everyone right up front – he never stuck his hands in his pockets when they started to shake,” says Beverly, 65, his wife of 40 years. April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month, but the Steensons are best known in Campbell River for the 11 years they ran the Campbell River Food Bank. They had arrived in the coastal community

in 1995 after Fraser retired from the Canadian Armed Forces. He grew up in Vancouver and then joined the air force. He spent his career flying Sea King helicopters off the back of destroyers, as well as training new pilots. It was during an East Coast assignment when one of Fraser’s flying buddies introduced him to his sister, Beverly, a Halifax girl. From then on, the two of them just “took off ” together. F raser and Beverly raised two sons – and now have three grandchildren – and life was grand as they approached retirement. During his stint in the air force, Fraser

is a treatment known as deep brain stimulation. It involves a surgical procedure where a neurostimulator – similar to a heart pacemaker – is implanted

and delivers electrical stimulation to the brain. The goal of the stimulation is to alleviate the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s such as tremor, rigidity, stiffness, slowed movement and walking problems. But the problem for Fraser is that just one

doctor in all of B.C. performs the operation and the waiting list to see the surgeon is two years long. Fraser is waiting for his opportunity for the procedure, so he continues his regime of exercise which is also beneficial for people with Parkinson’s. His favourite past-

time, for Beverly too, is golf. Their patio home backs onto the eighth fairway at Sequoia Springs Golf Course and the couple love to walk the “garden course” together. “With golf I find I get more exercise than most folks because I take more strokes,” Fraser says with a

smile and a twinkle in his eye. Yes, the sense of humour remains intact and so is his positive outlook on life which is also so beneficial to his well-being. “You have to take control of your life, you can’t let Parkinson’s run it for you,” he says.

PUZZLE PAGE

HOROSCOPES LIBRA

You could be feeling an accumulation of fatigue at the moment. Be very careful about not overworking yourself and falling ill as a result.

Many small but urgent tasks will present themselves and will require a special attention to detail on your part. Try to get plenty of sleep and rest, because you are very sensitive to germs this week.

You will receive some interesting invitations to go out, even in the middle of the week. There are plenty of people you would love to see again, and this might be the opportunity to do so.

GEMINI Professional and family responsibilities seem to take up most of your time this week. Fortunately, good friends are always available to help you out.

CANCER

LEO Several changes will occur in a spontaneous sort of way, some of them leaving you feeling as though you lack control over your life. Staying goodnatured will help you deal with the changes.

This is a good week to work on self-esteem, which you need in order to achieve great things in your life. Don’t hesitate to take on a big challenge that will allow you to feel proud of yourself. You might be asked to do some overtime at work, or you will be held up by family obligations. Find some healthy ways to relieve stress and all will work out just fine.

CAPRICORN A bit of confusion could arise during some sort of negotiation. If you express your opinions respectfully, your standing in the negotiations will be bolstered.

PISCES

You will be confronted with a decision for which you sense you don’t have all the necessary information. Don’t worry, though. Your intuition will help to guide you judiciously in the right direction.

You have so much momentum that you rush head first into everything you undertake, even if some people try to restrain you. You are so enthusiastic and determined that nothing in the world can slow you down. ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 125

Mount Washington finishes snowy season with one big splash Mount Washington Alpine Resort will wrap up a snowy 201112 winter season this Sunday, April 22 after hosting the annual Crush Slush Cup. “Its been another amazing year for snowfall,” explains moun-

tain spokesperson Brent Curtain. “We’ve received over 14 metres of total snowfall since November which gives us our fourth snowiest season on record.” In similar fashion to recent deep snow years, Mount Washing-

ton welcomed an earlier than expected start to the season in the first week of December. After receiving exceptional amounts of snow in late January and March, a weeklong extension was added to the month of

April. “It’s hard to believe that three of our four deepest snow years have occurred in the last three years,” Curtain adds. “Mother Nature has definitely delivered the goods to skiers and boarders on

Vancouver Island.” Late season snow seekers will be treated to an entire mountain to ride over the last week of operation. Cross-country skiers will also have full use of the Raven Lodge and Nordic Centre right up

to April 22. The funfilled Ozone Snowtubing Park will also be open daily until closing day this Sunday. And with a seasonending base of over five metres, the mountain has more than enough snow to build

an awe-inspiring venue for this year’s Crush Slush Cup. The Slush Cup features costumed participants who must ski, board, or occasionally slide down a slope and into a frozen pit of snow-filled water.

Planning for Life Changes So you’re thinking about downsizing and moving

2X14

Are you getting tired of cutting the grass and shoveling snow? Are you uncomfortable lugging laundry baskets and groceries up and down stairs? Perhaps the thought of moving sounds good, but the thought of selling your home and moving to a smaller place overwhelms you. If so, you are not alone! Making the decision to move to a smaller place is extremely difficult for many older adults. If you’ve lived in your home for several decades, then leaving it may feel like an enormous loss. If your children Anne Delaney have moved on, it may feel like your house is all you have left. You may think that your house keeps you connected to those happy memories of years past. But none of that matters if your house is no longer safe for you. It is estimated that it takes a minimum of 80 hours to completely sort and pack an average home. This is an enormous task. It will be easier if you break the tasks of downsizing into small segments, which may begin with 15 minute sessions a couple of times throughout the day. The key is to take small steps, one drawer at a time, one box at a time. Share with your family and friends cherished items and heirlooms and take comfort in knowing that these possessions will be appreciated. If the prospect of tackling this on your own is just too much, you can hire a relocation company. When it comes to hiring a relocation specialist or moving yourself, deciding which is better is different for everyone. Usually the first factor is cost. But you must also factor in your time, the difficulty or complexity of the move, your ability, the distance, and who you have in your life to help you. Is time an issue? Do you have people in your life to help you? Can you organize all the packing materials, utility transfer, moving truck? The headaches of packing and moving everything yourself can be hugely reduced by hiring a relocation service. A relocation company can also work with your floor plans, to help you decide what will fit. They will help with downsizing and disposing of unwanted items, and create a plan of action and co-ordinate the whole move from start to finish. Have you all unpacked and moved in by suppertime. Making later life moves are never easy, but if you downsize to a smaller home before you need to make a move to a retirement community or care home, that move will be easier. The hardest move for most people is the break from the long-time family home, because of all the memories. Moving is a great time for personal growth and healing: when a person settles into their new home, they can have sense of satisfaction about the past and hope for the future. Reminiscing is a combination of a little grief and a lot of celebration. The following is a list of what Delaney Relocation and Home Support Services INC can do for you: We will: • Assess your current home and your needs • Assess your new location & how best to accommodate you & your possessions in it • Work with the floor plan of your new home • Provide advice to assist your decision-making • Create a work plan, short term and long term- with a time frame for every activity • Provide hundreds of helpful suggestions • Help co-ordinate realtors, appraisers, cleaners, movers etc. • Help downsize, doing as little or as much as you can handle • Sort and organize your belongings • Help dispose of unwanted items • Handle all your utility and address changeovers • Take care of all the packing • Provide all the packing materials • Arrange for cleanup, household repairs and garbage disposal • Keep you updated on progress every step of the way • Keep family updated on the progress of the move by email • Allow you to be in control of the process to whatever degree you wish. • Remove all packing materials after the move • Have you unpacked and set up by suppertime Anne Delaney is a Certified Relocation and Transition Specialist and a Certified Professional Consultant on Aging and has the training and knowledge to help you through every step of your move.

Seems like a new dumping spot (or an old favourite) is active on an old logging road leading away from McIvor lake. The site is only 5 minutes away from the Lion's Beach parking lot (the big sandy one at the end of the lake - the big public beach). Interestingly, Styrofoam is not recyclable in Campbell River, because it is "so light and bulky" and so not cost effective to transport to a processing centre. By the same token, taking it to the landfill instead of the forest near McIvor Lake would cost $4.00. So clearly in this instance, is the landfill fee really a factor?

Anyone with information on the person/s who illegally dumped these items can call

Swinging start to 2012 baseball season

Campbell River Minor Baseball kicked off its 2012 season Saturday at Nunns Creek Park. All teams at the ball field paused their games Saturday morning to stand along the side of the road to cheer on Terry Kratzman who passed by while on his run from Port Hardy to Victoria to raise money for KidStart. Peewee division manager Dave Roemer said the moment added to a great season opener, under sunny skies. Pictured above, Jayce Hudak of the mosquito Blue Jays tries valiantly to take a crack at a pitch. Right, Kristian Drake of the peewee Mariners throws out a pitch against the Yankees.

PROCESS Takes all types of food waste - meat, dairy, bones, vegetables basically everything from the kitchen table. It's easy to install, the hardest thing is digging a shallow (2') hole. All it needs is decent drainage and sunlight. No need to turn it, or empty it more than once every few years. Using solar heat in combination with macro bacterial activity it breaks down waste aerobically into nutrient rich water that is absorbed into the soil, and a very small amount of residue. An enclosed system means it doesn't emit odors. Accommodates all of the food waste of an average family of four or five.
