Willows kids wheel into school Bike ‘roadeo’ teaches students about riding safely and keeping bikes in tip top shape Laura Lavin News Staff

In preparation for Victoria’s Bike to Work Week, May 28 to June 3, Willows elementary students strapped on their helmets and took a course in road safety with the Oak Bay police on May 16. “We want to encourage kids to ride their bikes to school and get their parents out there too,” said Willows principal Wendy Holob. Nearly 100 Grade 4 students made their way around the course, learning hand signals and what to watch out for on the roads. Police also did bike and helmet safety checks. “It’s an initiative of our PAC. This year’s PAC looked at starting this as an annual thing that we can do before Bike to Work week,” she said. The parent group has put a lot of energy into bringing the cycling safety program to the school this year. “It’s an ongoing initiative,” said PAC co-chair Carolyn Kroeber. “We put in five (new bike racks) last year thanks to a kind donation from the Kiwanis (Club).” “The PAC has put real effort into getting more bike racks,” Holob said. “The municipality purchased extra bike racks last year for us. One of the problems is we don’t have enough racks for all the kids to (ride) their bikes in.” The PAC is adding to the stock of bike racks, bringing in an additional 10 sets this year. “With the municipality and the PAC adding racks this year, more and more children have a place to lock up their bikes,” said Holob. Traffic is always a problem around the school, said Kroeber. “For people living in the area it would be nice to reduce the traffic.” With that and the safety lesson combined, “we can put the push on for students to walk or wheel to school,” Holob said. editor@oakbaynews.com

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and It’s Happening Right Here in Victoria!

By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased.

Here’s How It Works: Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot – it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewellery and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If your’re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

Oak Bay residents will soon have another avenue for voicing their opinions. Council decided at its May 14 meeting to draft a bylaw allowing public participation at regular council meetings. A staff report showed that nine out of 13 municipalities allow public participation during council meetings, with three limiting speakers to residents and nonresident property owners. All included a time limit on public participation. Coun. Cairine Cairine Green Green weighed in on the discussion expressing her enthusiasm for the idea. North Saanich, where she was formerly a councillor, includes public discussion at council meetings. “It works well and issues are often resolved at the mike,” she said. Michelle Kirby Coun. Michelle Kirby explained that increased public participation is why she got involved in local politics in the first place. “It’s a very valuable thing. I’m excited for it to happen,” she said. Council members were all positive about the change. “I think it’s a great way to involve the public and give them an outlet to speak to things in the community,” said Mayor Nils Jensen. Time for public participation will be limited to three minutes per speaker and 20 minutes total. Subject matter need not be on the agenda and speakers will not be limited to Oak Bay residents. Currently the public may only comment on matters before the committee of the whole, which is made up of council members and meets once a month. editor@oakbaynews.com

Stan Sipos had a development variance permit in front of council May 14 asking to increase the paved front yard surface and building height of a new home on Radcliffe Lane, but a few of his new neighbours asked council not to allow it.

Sunglass protection Sunglasses, clip-ons and tinted lenses are used to block out the glare of bright sunlight. They can also filter out ultra-violet (UV) rays. These rays are invisible to the eye, yet potentially harmful. Ultra-violet is thought to be absorbed mostly at the corneal level. This is the cause of “snow blindness,” an extremely painful condition. Recent evidence indicates that some UV may play a role in cataract formation and may also be one of the causes of macular degeneration. Misconceptions exist regarding sunglass selection and protection. It is true that you can’t tell how much UV a pair of sunglasses is blocking by the color or the density of tint. This doesn’t mean that UV light is difficult or expensive to block. An inexpensive pair of sunglasses that claims to block 100% of UV almost certainly does. The advantage of the more expensive brands lies in the quality of their optics and the visual comfort they afford the wearer. To get the best advice about sunglasses talk to an optometrist.

OUR VIEW

Keep pressuring high-risk drivers Last weekend’s long weekend unofficially ushered in the summer season in the Capital Region – that means more beach time, more barbecues and, for many, more time on the road. That’s why police agencies are waging a focused assault on speeding and aggressive driving. Saanich police in particular are hitting problem roads and intersections this month to drive home the idea that tailgating, speeding and high-risk driving won’t be tolerated. It’s the kind of driving behaviour that frustrates motorists on a daily basis – someone riding too close on the highway or weaving in and out of traffic, running yellow and red lights and generally behaving in ways that ramp up road rage. If homeowners are going to call the police about something in their neighbourhood, more often than not it’s about speeding or racing. For police, combating reckless driving is a labour-intensive and time-consuming task. Unlike roadblocks where officers can wait for drunk drivers to come to them, traffic patrol officers need to witness and document speeding and dangerous driving. But it’s a worthwhile effort. Culled from police data, ICBC attributes 60 per cent of all crashes at intersections to speed, distracted and inattentive driving and ignoring right-ofways. On Vancouver Island that drops to 50 per cent, but police link 29 traffic fatalities on average per year on the Island to speeding and reckless driving. The annual campaign against high-risk driving picks up across the province in May, and more people than usual are being hit with tickets. But people need to remember police aren’t the enemy – traffic officers are trying to make the roads safer and more civil for all. Drinking and driving remains a high-profile problem and, by definition, is risky driving. But it’s the purely aggressive, high-risk driving that impacts people’s day-to-day lives as they drive to work or school or for recreation. We encourage police and ICBC to help keep the pressure on bad drivers year round. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@oakbaynews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

The committee sought advice from Health Canada, whose scientists approve conditions of use for chemicals. Health Canada representative Lindsay Hansen said B.C. was the first province to ask for its advice, despite the fact that most provinces have imposed bans. These bans are political, not public safety measures, University of Guelph toxicologist Keith Solomon told MLAs. The committee also learned that “cosmetic” use accounts for only five per cent of pesticide use. Most of it is in agriculture, forestry and commercial pest control, with no ban proposed. MLAs in farming areas signalled their concern over the effect of this urban gesture politics. Backyard fruit trees go unsprayed and pests spread to orchards and fields. We have large areas of agricultural land reserve, but 85 per cent of the people who live in those areas don’t farm. The NDP is content to fan public fear and ignore evidence, as with smart meters and oil pipelines. The premier has a choice here. She can do the popular thing, or the right thing.

Stop clear-cutting Oak Bay Yet another modern house will be built in our community on Monterey Avenue. It is not only at odds with the esthetic of neighbouring homes but three magnificent 50-foot mature trees were unnecessarily removed in the process. Healthy, mature trees are sacrificed for the sake of achieving maximum size of house and maximum profits. Sadly, this is an increasingly common occurrence in our community. We, the residents, need to request that our council put in place a committee that can protect against overdevelopment, protect existing trees, review building designs to maintain and

respect the features and characteristics which are important for the quality of neighbourhoods, ensure compliance to the community plan, and take into consideration the opinion of neighbours. The municipality responds to these concerns with ‘the builders are within their right under the current bylaw.’ But what about the rights of residents? We have also heard the argument that these new houses with increased property values generate revenue for the municipality, but we would do well to look to the history of other communities of historic homes similar to ours. In many of those communities, when ‘modern’

Existing is not illegal This is in regards to new faces on the avenue attracting attention (News, May 4). Yes it’s always easy to be judgmental over those who may not be as fortunate as the rest of us in their lives – bottom line, they like the rest of us, have a right to be on the Avenue. If these “new faces” begin to do things which are illegal then some form of action should be contemplated. As far as I know, just being there on the Avenue is not illegal. Chris Garrett-Petts Oak Bay

box-builds reach a certain ratio, the value of all the homes in the community decreases, while sensitive new homes and preservation of existing homes and natural environment increases value. It is truly disheartening that the municipality of Oak Bay allows this to continue. And the fact that beautiful trees were unnecessarily destroyed in the process is unacceptable. The municipality must act to preserve the character of our heritage neighbourhoods and stop allowing the clear-cutting of Oak Bay. R. and C. Knowlton Oak Bay

To have such troubles Perhaps we could call them the disenfranchised poor, as they try to supplement meager funds without government bureaucracy handing them money. Those gossiping in the local coffee shop must be called the blessed ones, to be able to sit in a coffee shop, probably on many occassions with many friends, with the prime discomfort in life being seeing a beggar on the Avenue. Such a sad a state of affairs. Jim Thomas Oak Bay

Developers should not sacrifice the environment I do not live in Victoria, nor do I reside in Oak Bay. I live in a modern condo development in Vancouver. My home reflects my personal appreciation of the West Coast modern design esthetic. While I approve of some development, lately, when I visit Victoria and see what is happening in Oak Bay, I am appalled. It is terrible to watch a neighborhood like Oak Bay being ravaged by developers who are intent on demolishing the existing homes and trees for the sake of profit. It seems that nothing is being done to preserve the unique heritage of Oak Bay. The current development on Monterey Avenue is one such travesty. It is very upsetting that the municipality would allow something so out of touch with the esthetic of the community to be built there. The design of the home being built is not at all sympathetic to the surrounding neighborhood. Rather than incorporating elements of the environment into their design the developers chose to haul away truckloads of rich topsoil and cut down and sell beautiful, healthy 100-year-old trees, which were home to many species of birds and animals. This is not an isolated incident, the same is happening all over Oak Bay. I believe that differences should be celebrated and creativity should not be inhibited. However, heritage neighborhoods like Oak Bay need to be protected and developers need to be held accountable for their actions. Developers should be required to build homes without sacrificing the environment or the esthetic of the existing community. It is important that rules are established to enforce these mandates, and that we look to conscientious developers to take our heritage communities into the future. L. Frederick Vancouver

Those who object to adding housing are good at making fallacious arguments misrepresenting the source and solution of perceived problems. They’ll claim that greater density increases utility costs, ignoring that water is metered, sewer is charged on water consumption, garbage volume is limited unless a surcharge is paid and municipal utility construction and maintenance costs are covered by more tax revenue from increased assessed values. NIMBYs accuse suite occupants of being noisy when in reality partiers can legally rent a whole house and create noise. They accuse suite occupants of driving dangerously, when in fact many suite occupants cannot afford vehicles, and drunken house owners and misbehaved children cause safety problems on the street. Those are issues of policing not zoning, yet councils spend on micro-managing property owners instead of policing. And NIMBYs appeal to the collective about preserving views from their residence. They are trying to freeze time – they’ve got their piece of the rock, but by their actions they are saying no one else deserves any. Never mind that aging Oak Bay residents who have to give up their homes would benefit from construction of a care facility that the NIMBYs try to make more expensive or block completely. What’s going on with NIMBYs? They are trying to control others’ property at no cost to themselves. That is selfish. Why are voters electing politicians who block the freedom of honest people on behalf of incompetent and dishonest people? Keith Sketchley Saanich

David Foster Miracle Weekend begins Friday Doctors told Tamara Fisher it was a miracle that her daughter Evanne, diagnosed with a non-functioning heart, was born on Oct. 2, 2004. They had also told the single mother that due to her rare heart defects, she should terminate her pregnancy when she was four-anda-half-months along. Later on, after Evanne’s month-old body was struggling to survive experimental heart surgery, the surgeon told Tamara that procedure

• What is a Depreciation Report? • When must it be completed? • Who is qualified to prepare the report? • How much will it cost your strata? • Why should you get one? • What will happen if you don’t have one?

Paulette Marsollier

We tend to think of strata living as a free lifestyle opportunity to relax and have someone else take care of it all. Caveat Emptor (buyer beware) applies to the purchase of a strata but once an owner you must realize that you are a shareholder in a corporation or a shareholder in the common property. The roof, parkade, plumbing and electrical in interior walls and so on are shared and partly owned by you.

Depreciation Reports will account for all components within the common property of your building and determine the remaining life of each component and also the costs of repair, maintenance and/or replacement. Do you know how your strata corporation fits into the changes to the BC Strata Act? Your unit may be beautiful but how attactive is your corporation to a buyer? These are serious considerations.

Please join us with the Vancouver Island Strata Association VISOA June 10, 2012 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Edelweiss Hall 108 Niagara Street We will hear from an engineer, lawyer, property manager, realtor and a strata council president discussing issues relative to Depreciation Reports. Pre-register at seminars@visoa.bc.ca or 1.877.338.4762 before June 7th. Your strata plan number is required when pre-registering. This will be an invaluable session please make every effort to attend. Paulette Marsollier pmarsollier@sothebysrealty.ca

“She’s such a sweet, caring girl and her heart breaks for so much,” Tamara said. “With the heart being such an emotional organ, I know that the sensitivity and powerful emotion that Evanne has comes from that donor. I know the donor was an amazing child.” The Miracle Weekend encompasses two concerts, a gala dinner and an auction of high-profile trips and VIP packages to events such as the Grammys, the Indianapolis 500 and Celebrity Fight Night with Muhammad Ali. As of press time, tickets for the Saturday (May 26) Miracle Concert, featuring performances by Sarah McLachlan, Josh Groban, Ruben Studdard, The Canadian Tenors, Kenny G and Sinbad, were available at 250-220-7777 or selectyourtickets.com. Prices range from $125 to $250. All proceeds go to the David Foster Foundation. For more information on the Miracle Weekend visit davidfostermiracleconcert.com. nnorth@saanichnews. com

the Fishers. It’s far from the foundation’s humble beginnings hosting celebrity softball games at Royal Athletic Park. “Promoting the message is really so important to us and our cause,” said Michael Ravenhill, chief executive officer of the David Foster Foundation. “This weekend is a celebration of 25 years of our foundation and there’s been many successes in here, but we also can’t forget those families we’ve lost along the way.” Tamara hopes to one day connect with the family whose loss gave way to Evanne’s life.

These are critical questions due to critical change in our BC Strata Act. Whether you are on council or a strata owner you should be always be informed and knowledgeable as to how your strata is faring financially and preventatively to avoid surprises.

Tamara gives full credit to the David Foster Foundation for the life that Evanne now enjoys as a healthy Grade 2 student at David Cameron elementary in Colwood.

From back burner to mainstage Roszan Holmen News staff

The audition instructions were daunting. Perform songs that showcase the voice using no pre-recorded music. Instead, shortlisted musicians were invited to play an electric keyboard to accompany themselves for a panel of six judges, for a chance to perform at the David Foster Foundation Miracle Weekend. “I’ve never had a (piano) lesson in my life,” says Turkoni, one of 30 local musicians invited to audition from a list of 90 candidates. “I don’t know what I was most nervous about, the singing or the playing.” While the the singer-songwriter has adeptly worked out the chords to some of her songs she’s recorded and uploaded to YouTube, she readily admits she’s no performance pianist. Even so, her playing must have passed the test. Or her big voice compensated. Turkoni was selected to perform a 20-minute session during the fundraiser’s brunch event May 27. In total, 13 local musicians will perform at the event. “We loved her sound,” says Erin Van Zant, talent and culture manager for the Oak Bay Beach hotel, which is co-hosting the event. “People assume I’m a pop singer with a squeaky voice, but I’m not,” says Turkoni,

Musician Eva Turkoni plays her guitar outside the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Turkoni will be performing at the Empress during the celebrations for the David Foster Foundation's 25th anniversary. a petit blond, decked out in bright pink nail polish. When hearing her deep, almost husky voice, “people look at me and say, ‘that should not come out of you,’” Turkoni says. The chance to perform at the Miracle

Weekend is a coup for someone who has not been pursuing music seriously for several years. Back in England, where she grew up, Turkoni won a scholarship for a music degree specializing in vocals, and was gig-

ging regularly with three bands and had her own music manager. She gave it all up, however, when she met her future husband while travelling. They moved to Victoria in 2008. Since then, she admits, it’s been hard to find gigs, and hard to connect up with other musicians. She’s also been otherwise occupied. The 28-year-old is a wedding planner, runs a landscaping company with her husband, and also sells her paintings. Music has been on the back burner, but she’s adamant it’s what she wants to do. “I would give all my companies up for that,” she says. “I know I have a talent. It’s my dream career.” For her big show date, she’s working with a pianist and backup singer. “I hope the show goes amazingly and I don’t forget any words,” she says. Turkoni’s also aware of David Foster’s presence and the possibility that he’ll be scouting the next big talent. Van Zant, however, can’t confirm this. “He is here for the weekend but we haven’t made any promises to any of our musicians. “But if the moons and stars line up …” Van Zant says, pausing before qualifying again that it’s too risky to make promises. rholmen@vicnews.com

Co-op supports city’s elite women’s soccer Peninsula Co-op is looking forward to an exciting season of women’s soccer after lending both its name and support to the Victoria Highlanders’ women’s squads. As presenting partner of the Women’s First Team – Peninsula Co-op Women’s Soccer – the Co-op is thrilled to be able to support Victoria’s team in the United Soccer League’s W-League, the top amateur women’s league in North America. Competition at this level brings additional expenses, such as travel to both California and Colorado, meaning the team needed sponsorship. The locally minded Peninsula Co-op was a perfect fit. “When a company takes a leadership role like that, it’s huge,” says Highlanders president Alex Campbell. In addition to adding a sense of legitimacy to the program, the partnership also helps get the word out. In fact, at the Women’s First Team’s season opener – which they won 3-2 against the Vancouver Whitecaps – attendance was up three times over last year. The Women’s First and U20 teams both sport red and white jerseys bearing the Peninsula Co-op logo and players are working closely with the Co-op, participating with local events, promoting their sport and encouraging active, healthy lifestyles. Following two games away in Colorado, fans are encouraged to come cheer on the home team June 1 at Royal Athletic Park.

The Archers stay on target Arnold Lim News staff

With a new single on the horizon, the Archers have their sights set on touring. For the first time the five-man troupe of Stelly’s secondary graduates, featuring Ethan Caleb, Liam Moes, Sandy Hughes, Robert McMullen, and Liam McLaren has taken their show east of the Mainland on a 10-city tour – with an eye on building “their sound” that sets them apart. “We think we have a cool sound going on,” said drummer Moes. “We feel like we have stumbled across something interesting and we hope others feel the same way.” They aren’t the only ones who believe that – early in 2011 the band secured top spot in YouThink’s B.C.’s Best Teen Band Contest taking home the cash and studio recording time that came with the

title. Keeping the ball rolling, they used the studio time to record their newest single Cathedral, the money to finance a tour, and the newfound confidence to propel themselves across B.C. and Alberta. “We pride ourselves on putting on a good live show. We always try to bring good energy and have fun,” Moes said. “We want people to come out to our shows, the more people come out the better we play.” Fun comes easier these days. After high school graduation last June, the future was uncertain and potential for members to embark on different paths was very real. Winning the contest reaffirmed their commitment to each other – and Caleb, one of the band’s founders, believes his choice was an easy one. “The best decision I ever made was to stick around doing what we love,”

Caleb said. “Things are happening to us, it is not just a dream anymore. It is something more.” When they return from their 10-stop tour, the five hope to focus on creating a new full-length album and refining the sound that is getting them noticed. “We just want to keep what we are doing, and keep playing music we love. Our goal is to keep doing that and not have to paint houses and drywall and insulate,” Caleb said laughing. “The best part of being in the Archers is we get to play music … We tapped into a sound people seem to be enjoying at all ages. … If people want to listen and dance and enjoy it in any way – that is great.” The Archers wind up their tour with Mindil Beach Markets on Friday, May 25, at the Off The Grid Festival 2012 at 4 p.m. at Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Site, 603 Fort Rodd Hill Rd. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Highlanders seek first home win on Sunday The Victoria Highlanders men’s first team faces the Kitsap Pumas and is looking for its first home win of the 2012 season at Royal Athletic Park on Sunday at 4 p.m. The men opened its season with a pair of back-to-back ties at RAP before a road trip this week. The squad faces Sounders FC U23 in Washington State on Friday. Top players returning this year are team captain Tyler Hughes, 2011 top scorer Jordie Hughes, Ashley Burbeary (5 goals, 8 assists), and goalkeeper Elliot Mitrou. The Highlanders women’s first team is playing its second season out of RAP this year after failing to draw crowds to Bear Mountain Stadium. The women won their first W-league game and home opener 3-2 against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Their next home game is against Seattle on June 1.

Senior Shamrocks Victoria Shamrocks first home game of their 63rd season is Friday night against Maple Ridge at Bear Mountain Arena, 7:45 p.m. In celebration of its 63rd year, fans will be granted free admission to the opener if they can prove they are age 63, born in 1963, attend school in SD63 or can prove any other “63” at the Shamrocks box office. This season, the club will be boosted by the addition of 2012 National Lacrosse League all-star Jeff Shattler, who plays for the Calgary Roughnecks. Shattler, a 6-foot, 185pound transition is a former Mann Cup and Champion’s Cup winner “It’s funny” notes Shamrocks GM Chris Welch. “There has been so much attention paid to leaving players but I think fans will be really excited by the team we have here, obviously with Shats being back but the other guys too.” Junior A Shamrocks The Jr. A Shamrocks face the Burnaby Lakers at home on Saturday, May 26, 5 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena. As of last Friday, the Jr. Rocks held a 4-2 record and were third in the league after dropping a home game to the New Westminster Salmonbellies in a close 9-7 decision. Intermed. A Shamrocks The intermediate A Shamrocks stand 2-2 as of last Friday. The ‘Rocks’ next home game is Saturday, May 26, 1:30 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena against the struggling Port Coquitlam Saints.
