Forest CEOs gathering to tackle safety

Support sought for shop I

NANAIMO BOARD pushing province on trades training. BY JENN McGARRIGLE

THE NEWS BULLETIN

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Shop classes have been whittled down in recent years, but Nanaimo trustees hope to step in before there’s nothing left. Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, said trades programs are waning for a variety of reasons, including falling enrolment, a focus on academic choices and budgetary reasons. Trustees want the province to look at whether the system has adequate resources and staffing to help spark student interest – and provide extra funding where needed. “There’s a skills shortage in B.C.,” Brennan said. “We’re looking forward to the shipbuilding contracts coming in and the need for qualified, Red Seal-certified tradespeople. We want those good-paying jobs in the shipbuilding industry to go to B.C. students.” While high school courses will not prepare students to immediately go to work in a trade, the classes enable students to become aware of their aptitude and interest in those areas, Brennan said. A motion from Nanaimo school board asking that the B.C. School Trustees Association support creating a provincial committee to develop a minimum equipment inventory to assist school districts in developing realistic budgets was approved at the provincial group’s annual general

Two fatal fires at B.C. sawmills this year have resulted in the unprecedented step of wood products manufacturing executives teaming up to improve worker safety by creating their own task force. Chief executive officers of 12 B.C. companies came together Wednesday to share information and develop an industrywide response to mill safety following explosions at Babine Forest Products in Burns Lake in January and Lakeland Mills in Prince George in April. Two people were killed in each explosion. WorkSafeB.C. is investigating both incidents and has yet to come to a conclusion, which could take several months, though some believe combustion from sawdust may have been responsible. Companies including Ainsworth, Interfor, Coast Forest, Dunkley Lumber, Western Forest Products, Tolko, Sinclair Group, Hampton Affiliates, FP Innovations, Conifex, West Fraser Timber and Canfor aren’t waiting. The companies have established a CEO task force that will evaluate combustion risks related to dust from processing green and dry wood and attempt to identify improved practices for dust mitigation.

including not being able to replace teachers – when he moved into the woodworking shop at Dover several years ago, the technology course disappeared without a qualified teacher to run it – and waning student interest. Shop classes are not mandatory, said Holland, and if students don’t see value in learning the skills, they won’t take the course. “You have to make it attractive,” he said. “It’s got to be fun, but challenging. If kids don’t like it, you don’t get the enrolment and you don’t get the budget.” ◆ See ‘DISTRICT’S’ /4

province’s decision to remove maximum class size numbers in recent years, there are fewer technology education teachers and those remaining are teaching larger classes with less supplies, equipment and maintenance. Ken Holland, a shop teacher at Dover Bay Secondary School since 1992, said in the late ’70s, there were about a dozen shop teachers at Nanaimo District Secondary School alone. Now there are about that many in the entire district – but it’s hard to nail down why. He suspects the drop results from a combination of things,

stration classes, I wouldn’t have felt as confident having them in my school,” she said. “She’s created such a warm, safe feeling in her library.” Beleznay said schools have access to carts of laptops, iPads or iPods for six-week periods and often teachers will partner with the school’s teacher-librarian to implement the devices in classrooms. “It’s a steep learning curve to implement technology,” she said. “Having a partner and colleague to learn and work with is helpful. One of the things we can say without a shadow of a doubt is the kids are engaged. “Our more vulnerable learners are having an opportunity to participate in ways they might not have been able to before.” Reynolds, who became a teacher in 1990 but decided to make the switch to teacher-librarian several years ago, said she was “surprised but honoured” when she learned about the award, but that she couldn’t have done it without the support of her school, parents and other teacherlibrarians in the district. She said the award shines a light on the important work that teacherlibrarians do in schools – not only is she there to help students, her job is also to support other teachers. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Librarian’s leadership recognized with award I BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

ammy Reynolds began working as a teacher-librarian three years ago, but she’s already become a leader among her peers. Her efforts to help colleagues use technology effectively in the classroom earned her the B.C. New Teacher-Librarian of the Year award, an award provided by the B.C. Teacher-Librarians Association that recognizes those who are making an outstanding contribution to the profession at and beyond the school level. Last year, Reynolds participated in a pilot project at Coal Tyee Elementary School that used laptops, iPads and iPods in the classroom to enhance student projects and help vulnerable learners. Working alongside Grade 2 teacher Donna Anderson, Grade 4 teacher Catherine Galloway and Shelley Beleznay, the district’s literacy coordinator, Reynolds discovered ways to engage young students using this technology.

What motivated her to participate in the pilot project – dubbed Project Success – is the changing role of the teacher-librarian. “Being literate isn’t just about books anymore,” she said. “My job is to help foster a love of reading regardless of the tool they’re using.” With the support of Reynolds and the other teachers, the students created digital stories, comic strips and used photography, video and a voice recorder app in their projects. “We explored a whole different variety of apps,” she said. “For many kids, it allows them to orally share what they know, show they understand something through pictures and images. The finished project looks so professional when it’s put together.” On top of helping students, Reynolds invited teachers and teacher-librarians into her classroom so they could get an idea of how to use the iPads and iPods in their own classrooms – after the pilot study concluded, the technology was available for use by other schools. Val Martineau, a teacher-librarian at Randerson Ridge Elementary School, said Reynolds’s help made her feel more comfortable with bringing the iPads and iPods into her own school and knowing how to use them. “Had I not gone to those demon-

Task force looks to set standard ◆ From /1 “This is in conjunction with the WorkSafe BC directive order,” said Western Forest Products spokeswoman Makenzie Leine. “We already have a very high level of awareness on safety, as a company it’s our top priority, but the magnitude of this situation has really called us together to really do something different. That’s why you’re seeing this elevated action.” With the help of exter nal scientists, insurance engineers and experts, and other stakeholders, the new task force will also be mandated to develop an industry-wide auditable standard that can be used to assure mill safety, create an industry-wide approach to safety that can be used by both large and small operations, and identify best practices for dust mitigation from other industries. “This is a significant collaborative effort to ensure that B.C.’s wood products manufacturers are operating to the absolute highest standards,” said Hank Ketcham, West Fraser CEO, in a release. Don Kayne, CEO of Canfor, said any findings made by the task force will be shared with all stakeholders, and that the task force will report to a CEO action committee. “We will continue to be transparent with our employees, with government and with each other if we identify new combustion hazards or means of improving safety procedures,” he said.

District’s CTC a bright spot ◆ From /1 Class sizes have been creeping up in shop programs over the past 10 years, Holland added, which is a problem because many shops are designed to accommodate 24 students at a time and the larger the classes are, the less in-depth he’s able to go safely. “The maximum number of students that I have had is about 28, but 30 has happened,” he said. “If it gets too crowded, they just have to wait their turn.” Chris Birch, a shop teacher at John Barsby Secondary School, said the school only has woodworking courses, but it used to have metal works, power mechanics and electronics shops as well. He said equipment isn’t the biggest issue – he can modify the curriculum to work with what they have, though in his experience, there is never a large enough budget to keep up with the latest in equipment – but class size is always a problem. “It’s always been a struggle to keep the class size down to a safe level,” he said. “Times are tough right now and there’s less money to go around.” Fred MacDonald, dean of applied trades and technology at Vancouver Island University, said he’s noticed that trades programs are on the decline in high schools. He said 20 years ago, a student graduating from high school was much more prepared to go into a post-secondary trades training program than today. “Students could advance a lot more quickly if they got the basics in high school,” said MacDonald. “It’s not just the skills themselves, it’s the interests and the motivation we need to be engendering.” A bright spot is the district’s Career Technical Centre, which offers students dual credits for taking trades programs at VIU, and the Secondary School Apprenticeship Program, where youth can begin a career in the trades and receive high school credits for doing so, said MacDonald. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

The Vancouver Island Conference Centre continues to attract organizations looking to utilize its leading edge technology and facilities, this time hosting the Vancouver Island Autism and Associated Conditions conference. More than 250 delegates are expected for the three-day conference Thursday to Saturday (May 10-12). Co-sponsored with the Ministry of Children and Family Development, the Autism Community Training Society has developed this year’s conference to focus on “getting on the same page building community capacity to address the needs of children and youth with ASD and associated conditions,” according to a release. Sixteen educational presentations representing two streams of focus between pre-schoolers and adolescence will be the focus of the conference.

BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

With the first stage of its Successful Cities initiative now complete, the Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce is looking to integrate its results into broader city strategies. In January, the chamber hosted a forum to help define qualities that provided a framework to help make Nanaimo a successful city. From that forum emerged 12 principles, including ideas such as environment, connectivity to move people and goods, and entrepreneurial governance. Within those 12 principles are 66 actions that can be considered by the city and its departments to make Nanaimo a more successful city. David Witty, who spearheaded the Successful Cities project for the chamber, said no city is perfect, but steps can be taken to improve the quality of life for all citizens. “Cities are a powerful symbol of what we’ve got right, but also of what we’ve got wrong and how we have failed in so many ways,” said Witty. “When we talk about success, it’s not success individually, but collectively.” Chamber representatives approached city council Monday to present their ideas and ask that the initiative be included in the city’s strategic plan, a similar initiative embarked on by city hall to establish priorities for Nanaimo. Coun. Fred Pattje said he appreciates Successful Cities, but isn’t sure how both plans will be woven together. “We have this dual system going on and while I’m sure everybody on council wants to make sure that we work in cooperation with Successful Cities, and that we one way

or another fold that into our own strategic plan, I’m not quite sure at this point how that is going to happen,” he said. Witty said the chamber is asking council for recognition of the work done on Successful Cities and to incorporate it into the city’s strategic plan, with the chamber and city working together to implement and monitor the actions recommended in the report. “I don’t think it’s a difficult thing to do and we’d offer our services to assist in how it might be grafted within the strategic plan,” he said. The chamber’s initiative pinpoints Nanaimo’s strengths, weaknesses, potential opportunities, challenges and potential solutions. The idea, said Witty, is to place Nanaimo in a strong position as variables like the economy constantly change. “The reality is we are in a new reality,” he said. “The reality is we need to approach our view of the economic world, our social world and our environmental world, and our cultural world from a multi-tiered perspective. That’s the way we need to face the future.” Successful Cities is a model approach used by cities around the world determine strengths and weaknesses.

The Nanaimo Airport will reach its goal of servicing one million passengers a little quicker thanks to a new route by Orca Airways. The Richmond-based carrier began twice-daily service from Nanaimo Airport to Vancouver International South Terminal Monday. “Based on our analysis, we believe there is plenty of room in the market for a second carrier offering additional flights to Vancouver,” said Mike Hooper, Airport CEO. Orca operates 15 Piper Navajos and two King Airs on routes out of Nanaimo, Tofino, Vancouver, Abbotsford, Victoria and Qualicum Beach.

RDN offering various rebates The Regional District of Nanaimo is helping residents get greener by providing rebates for eco-friendly upgrades. The RDN is offering rainwater cistern, woodstove exchange, solar hot water system, residential electric vehicle charging station, home energy assessment, graded site-cut lumber and toilet replacement rebates. The programs, which began May 1, are available on a first come, first serve basis and purchases for upgrades must be made after the start day to qualify. Preapproval for the rainwater harvesting incentive is required. Residents in the RDN electoral areas and Nanaimo, Lantzville, Parksville and Qualicum Beach could qualify for a rebate up to $750 to install a 3,700-litre cistern for rain capture. Electoral area residents can apply for a $50 rebate if replacing a conventional toilet with a dual flush or highefficiency alternative. Residents could also qualify for a $50 rebate, for the Green Building incentives, by meeting with the RDN’s sustainability coordinator and complete the sustainable development checklist. People who achieve a high score could get an additional $500 to $1,000. For more information, please go to www.rdn. bc.ca.

EDITORIAL

Name change not a solution Marc Dalton, Maple Ridge-Mission MLA, thinks his party, the B.C. Liberals, should change its name. He says the name – in place since the provincial Liberals formed in 1991 (and the one voters have elected to govern three consecutive terms) – is confusing to some centre-right voters, now that the B.C. Conservatives have surged to solid third-party status. Dalton says those who are federal Conservatives, like himself, will have a hard time voting B.C. Liberal next time. Last month, the NDP won two B.C. byelections, in Chilliwack-Hope and Port Moody-Coquitlam. The Liberals came second in both. The Conservatives third. The Liberals fear further vote splitting – or message sending – in the May 2013 provincial election. But changing the party’s name won’t prevent that. Doing so would seem even more confusing to voters, which may be the point. It’s easy to see why the Liberals would want to rebrand the party, distance itself from past scandals and failures, try to reverse falling popularity. But whatever the Liberals come up with – the B.C. Alliance Party is being floated about – it’s still the same cast of characters who brought you the B.C. Rail and HST fiascoes, among others. Whether or not Kevin Falcon and other cabinet ministers run again isn’t going to change that. And changing the party’s name, to something more progressive, won’t erase the past, or fool many. B.C. doesn’t need a new centre-right party – it already has two. The B.C. Conservatives beat the Liberals to the punch. Trying to decide between the two is what’s confusing. Are the Liberals about families or business? A tiger can’t change its stripes. Changing the party’s name is just painting over them. As long as the B.C. Conservatives are around, the right will be split. And that’s what the NDP is counting on.

I’m of two minds regarding the results – one of disappointment that my team won’t get the chance to repeat as Stanley Cup champions; but also a sense of relief as I don’t know if I could have summed up the same energy it took last year to go through a playoff run into June. The whole experience seemed to sour once the Canucks were eliminated by the Los Angeles Kings. The greatest joy of being a fan of another team in Canuck country was the response you got when flying your colours. Once Vancouver was out, nobody cared. Nobody booed me, nobody flipped me the occasional bird or yelled out a derogatory remark. Nobody hated me. It took the fun out of it. Of course, Boston suffering a similar fate against Washington didn’t help, either. Now, I’m one of those who doesn’t care. I keep up on the playoffs through the TV highlights, but there’s plenty of other things to do this spring. I will admit there has been some pretty entertaining hockey being played, but it’s not the same when you have nothing invested in it. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Theatre travels on Easy Street To The Editor, Re: Council fails to grasp economic lessons, Letters, May 3. Were I to run a business where I had to pay no rent, no hydro, no maintenance and no taxes, I would consider myself on Easy Street. The society that runs the Port Theatre is in this enviable position. The city owns the “civic theatre” and so pays no taxes on the $1 million plus facility, and as owner, pays for all of the maintenance, repairs and insurance as required, it heats the building and pays the hydro. This is done in part through

a grant to the Port Theatre Society which was set up to get the theatre operational and to keep the facility open for public use. Since opening, the society has taken on the job of “promoters”, bringing in acts and shows that would never have been financially viable. This is great culturally for those members of the public that can afford the ticket price. Might I question though, given all of the advantages listed above, why did the society need to come, hat in hand to council, for even more financial support?

Why is it that what should be more than enough, is not enough? Next year, will we see the same outstretched hand, will we see requests for even more funding? Can we say, that in these economic times, people are not buying as many of those high-priced tickets, therefore must we additionally subsidize those fewer numbers of patrons who can afford these entertainments? Our councillors should look closer before spending more of our tax dollars. Alan MacKinnon Nanaimo

History shows B.C. teachers have sacrificed To the Editor, Re: BCTF making a big gamble, Opinion, April 28. Your editorial about teachers withdrawing volunteer work misses some key points. The dispute between teachers and the government is primarily about the quality of our public education system and the civil rights of teachers. Further, the editorial has ignored the lessons of history. Bill 22 has returned us to the situation of 2002, when class size limits were removed by the B.C. Liberal government. In three years, class sizes grew to the point where it was clear to everyone that something was wrong. Teachers sacrificed two weeks of salary by opting for an illegal strike in 2005, but with significant public support, forced the government into arbitration. Class sizes were reduced once again, though the employer could still exceed the guidelines through a flawed “consultation” process at the secondary level. Class size drives quality in education. It is for smaller classes that some parents spend thousands for private school education for their children. By increasing class size in public schools, the government increases the competitive advantage of private schools. Does the Liberal government have an agenda to create a two-tier education system with high quality education reserved for those with means? The public can and will decide that. Bargaining between our union and the government over class size and composition has failed, and so has legal action. Teachers feel they must now individually fight for the quality of public education and their civil rights. This is why we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily withdraw volunteer services, keeping the issues facing public education front and centre and allowing us extra time to

Hydro investigates smart meter concerns To the Editor, I want to thank our B.C. Hydro customers for their patience as we move to modernize our electrical system so we can better meet the growing demand for safe, reliable power. More than one million smart meters have been installed – about a 60 per cent completion rate for the province. With a project of this size, it’s not going to be perfect; we acknowledge that and appreciate customers’ patience. The new meters provide a lot of benefits: faster power restoration when there’s an outage, new tools to help save energy and money, and reduced costs with savings passed to our customers. Customer feedback is important to us, including the tough questions. A colder

winter coupled with a rate increase at the time new meters were installed caused some to ask if the higher bill is a result of the new meter. All concerns brought to our attention are investigated. What we are finding is that bills are often consistent with past use; or there has been a manual misread of the meter. If neither of those are the cause, we look at every other possible source, including the meter. Over half of the inquiries regarding high bills this year have come from customers with the old meters, not new smart meters. Like the millions of massproduced electronic devices we power, there will be a small number of meters that might not work properly. The old meters had the same shortcomings. Out of over a million new meters installed to date, a small number experienced any problems. The beauty of the new meters is that the vast majority of these problems are being caught by system checks and do not affect customer bills. When our smart grid is operational, it will be easier to detect problems and fix them much faster. Ted Olynyk y B.C. Hydro spokesman Vancouver Island

An NDP government is no improvement To the Editor, Re: Government change eagerly awaited, Letters, May 5. Arlene Feke says what a wonderful improvement an Adrian Dix government will be. Yeah, right. It’s standard policy of any NDP government to downgrade the credit rating, do everything Jim Sinclair tells it to do, is government for four years, calls an election and is defeated by a coalition government that has to once again take drastic measures to clean up the mess.

Street hockey game in need of volunteers

Cedar farmers’ market opens Mother’s Day

The organizer of a Guiness World Record attempt at the world’s longest street hockey game, is finding it hard getting volunteers to commit to the cause. Yo u t h S t i c k i n g Together will try to beat the current world record of 105 hours and 17 minutes between June 28 and July 4 at the Nanaimo Curling Club lacrosse box. The game is a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island, Crimson Coast Dance Society and the Harewood Youth Ball Hockey league. “We’re looking for 200 (volunteers) and we’re at about the 50 mark right now,” said Tali Campbell, event organizer. For more information, please go to www. youthstickingtogether. com.

The Cedar Far mers’ Market celebrates Mother’s Day and 15 years in operation Sunday (May 13) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at at the Crow and Gate Pub on Yellow Point Road.

Officers make Alexa’s team

Twelve Nanaimo RCMP officers were recognized for their efforts in removing impaired drivers from mid-Island roads. Cpl. Norm Smith and constables Dave Buchanan, Ross Beisel, Brian Sampson, Wayne Vaughan, Grant Blanchette, Kate Mooney, Shawn Parker, Katie Butler, Mike Ilioi, Dan Boucher and Etienne St. Laurent-Chenard were named to the BCAA Road Safety Foundation 2011 Alexa’s Team. Alexa Middelaer was four years old when an impaired driver killed her in 2008 while she stood with her aunt on the side of the road feeding a horse. Formed in 2008, Alexa’s Team has grown from 26 members to 355 RCMP and municipal police officers in the province.

Health crew

Since then, the team has processed 32,743 impaired driving charges or penalties against drivers in violation of B.C’s impaired driving laws. Alexa’s Team, police officers must have removed at least 12 impaired drivers from the road in the previous calendar year. “These are the men and women who are fundamentally responsible for making our roads safe,” said Laurel Middelaer, Alexa’s mother. “They have delivered on their promise in an exceptional and meaningful way, and we are proud to be recognizing their excellence today, in honour of our daughter, Alexa.” For more information, please go to www.BCAARoadSafety.com.

SPCA camps empower kids The B.C. SPCA is hoping week-long summer camps will empower children to create a better world. The camps, running July and August in Victoria at the Burnside Campus, help children develop empathy by teaching them to regard the world as a shared space with other living beings, not only pets and farm animals, but wildlife too. These skills are developed through a range of educa-

tional and fun activities, including animal-themed games, skits, crafts, guest speakers and more. “The highlight for many of the kids is the time they spend every day interacting with, and learning about animals such as cats, dogs, rats, and other small furry creatures,” said Paula Neuman, B.C. SPCA humane education manager. “By gaining this compassion and knowledge, chil-

dren become attuned to the needs of other people, animals, and the environment. It helps them build confidence to follow their passion and take their love of animals to the next level.” It may be challenging for some children, especially boys, to express nurturing behaviour in a competitive society where such a virtue is often not encouraged, said Neuman. “Compassion and empathy

Saturday

towards other living beings are characteristics of nurturing behavior,” she said. “By providing an opportunity for children to express these behaviours in a positive environment, we hope to build children’s confidence so they incorporate this into their daily lives.” The camps run Monday to Friday at a cost of $155$170. For information, please go to http://spca.bc.ca/camp.

More than 20 Realtors took part in the inaugural Vancouver Island Real Estate Board Realtor Charity Hockey Game April 26 at Cliff McNabb Arena in front of a small, but enthusiastic group of fans. Organizers Justus Edmundson and Jordan Belveal presented Wendy Pratt, Hospice executive director, with the proceeds. “I can’t tell you what this means for me,” said Pratt. “On top of that I was surprised how good a hockey game it was.” Edmundson said the goal is to make the game an annual event.

Public art on display Residents and visitors to Nanaimo are invited to explore the city’s parks for new installations of public art. City crews will install seven new temporary public art pieces at Maffeo Sutton Park; McGregor Park; and Beban Park social centre today (May 8), which will remain on display until this time next year. At that time, the pieces will go up for auction through the Nanaimo Art Gallery’s website, with proceeds supporting the gallery and the temporary art project fund to ensure the program’s sustainability. Twenty-six applications from artists were received after the city’s request for proposals was issued in fall 2011. A seven-member panel selected the pieces to go on display this year. Plaques recognizing the artists, describing the pieces and giving auction details will be on display with each piece. For more information, please visit http://cnan. ca/dXGoQA

Magnetic Therapy The beneficial powers of magnets have been around for thousands of years to promote healing. Extensive modern research has brought about a deeper understanding and rebirth of this wisdom. Bio-magnetic fields affect the body in two ways: 1. Accelerated Healing: The bio-magnetic field attracts and BERYL FESER repels charged particles in the blood creating movement Cosmetic Manager and heat. This process causes the blood vessels to dilate increasing circulation, thus accelerating the natural Beryl has been serving this community for healing process. 2.

This electrical current stimulates cosmetics is a certified beauty the nervous system triggering a blockage of pain advisor, specializing sensations. in skin care and hair Magnetism is the basis of commonly known state-of-the- colour needs. art diagnostic tools such as M.R.I. (magnetic resonance imaging) used widely in the medical field today. Magnetism is a natural event. The earth is a giant magnet and all living organisms exist on it, depend on it, and respond to its magnetic field. The natural healing properties of magnets can be most beneficial to those suffering from chronic pain such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, carpet tunnel, back pain, neck pain, inflammation and migraines. There are many theories as to why and how magnetic therapy works. Like most alternative methods there is some skepticism. Magnetic therapy products work differently for each individual, therefore only you can determine if it works for you. Do not use if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or internal defibrillator. You don’t have to be in pain to benefit from magnets. My customers have mentioned more energy, better quality sleep, and an enhanced ability to focus. I have just received a new order of men’s and ladies high quality magnetic bracelets at a very reasonable price. Whether you are a believer in this type of therapy or a skeptic, you can’t go wrong. Let me share my personal story of how magnets have helped me.

DBL Timbermen earn first win I

SR. B TEAM loses 18-8; wins 16-9.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo DBL Timber men showed some resolve during the first week of the season. The city’s senior B lacrosse team lost its home opener 18-8 on Thursday to the Port Moody Thunder, but one night later Nanaimo turned things around and thumped the North Shore Indians 16-9 on the mainland. “We found our mojo,” said Shawn Swanson, veteran player. Friday’s outcome was remarkable in that the DBL men trailed by scores of 4-1 and 6-3. A goalie change at that point helped spark the team and Nanaimo outscored North Shore 10-1 in the third period. Jordan Jarvis led the offence with five goals and three assists, Jon Diplock scored four goals and Joey Fendick had a hat trick to go with three assists. Gabe Sutherland picked up a goal and five helpers and other scorers were Ryan Dietterle, Nick Agius and Swanson. Pat Mallough was the winning goalie and was supported by “very, very smart defence,”

said Swanson. It was a marked turnaround from the previous night at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, where coach Mike Maughan said there were some mistakes and miscommunication in the back end. But it was largely a rough first period in that game that sunk the

DBL Timbermen. “We got behind early; that can be attributed to jitters,” said Maughan. “You get behind like that and it’s kind of hard to build your way back out of that.” Defender Kyle Couling said the players showed better teamwork and more aggression as that game went on and said

the T-men would be able to build off of it. “A lot of new faces, a lot of guys that don’t know each other and I like the way we came together by the end of the game,” he said. Diplock scored four goals in that one, Joey Fendick had a goal and an assist and Couling, Ryan Clark and Shane

Chalker were the other scorers. Tony Wyse suffered the loss in goal. GAME ON … Nanaimo played Port Moody on the road Monday after press time. The team’s next game is Saturday (May 12) against the Langley Warriors at 7 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Grand slam paces attack as Pirates win The Nanaimo Pirates won pitchers’ duels and they won with home-run heroics. The Hub City Paving Pirates took three out of four victories on a road trip to the mainland this past weekend. Nanaimo’s B.C. Premier Baseball League team (13-3) swept the Vancouver Cannons 2-0 and 3-2 on Saturday in New Westminster, then split with the Coquitlam Reds the next day, winning 8-0 before losing 11-4. The highlight of the weekend was the blowout win, which saw Brady Rogers hit a grand slam home run. Brendan McCarthy also supplied offence in that game with a hit, a walk, an RBI and two runs scored. Justin Clarkson threw a complete-game four-hit shutout, walking just one batter and striking out six. The second game that day saw Alex Rogers suffer the loss on the mound. Clarkson led the offence with a double and a walk. The previous day started with a fine pitching performance as Colby Morgan threw a completegame two-hit shutout, striking out five Cannons. Ben Dunbar supplied two hits and Ryan Smith added a double. In the other game the Pirates found a way to win. They only managed one hit, from Morgan, but took advantage of the opponents’ six errors. Luke Skingle threw five innings for the win. GAME ON … The premier Pirates play their first night game of the regular season on Wednesday (May 9) against the Parksville Royals. Game time is 6 p.m. at Serauxmen Stadium and admission is $3. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Juniors vying for first victory

I

TIMBERMEN IN last place after 8-7 loss to PoCo. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Timbermen junior A lacrosse team thinks it’s overdue for its first win. The squad (0-4) lost a pair of home games on the weekend to fall to last place in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League.

Nanaimo dropped a 12-7 decision Saturday to the New Westminster Salmonbellies, then fell 8-7 the next day to the Port Coquitlam Saints. Both games were at Frank Crane Arena. The game against the Bellies was tied halfway through and the game against the Saints was a back-and-forth affair. Timber men player Ryan Nicks said his team should have won both games and said the T-men played “pretty bad” against the Saints.

“We came out slow in every period and we threw the ball away a lot,” he said. The Nanaimo team believes the offence hasn’t yet found a groove. “We have the talent to score, we’re just not putting the ball in the net,” Nicks said. Timbermen assistant coach Jamie Gilles said it all starts with tracking down loose balls. “You can’t score if you don’t have possession,” he said. “Because we were play-

ing without the ball so much, when our offence did have it, we weren’t playing a patient offence.” Against New West, Mitch Parker had two goals and two assists and Marino Best also scored twice. Versus PoCo, Paul Brebber and Corey Shires had two-goal games. GAME ON … Nanaimo hosts the Victoria Shamrocks on Wednesday (May 9) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. Admission is $5-10 at the door. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Nemesis nearly nab first win BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Two evenly matched roller derby teams skated to a nail-biting finish in the first bout of the season. Cumberland’s Brick House Betties were able to edge out the Nanaimo Nemesis 152-135 in a matchup Saturday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The Nemesis held a slim early lead but the Betties came back and led by as much as 130-90 midway

through the second half. The home team rallied late to make for a furious finish. Nemesis team captain Lyanne (Lee-thal Lyannimal) Burgoyne said her team created some strong defensive walls and communicated well. “We did really, really great,” she said. “We came together as a team and pulled off some good strategy, we kept calm and positive and I’m really proud of my team.” sports@nanaimobulletin.com
