Mike Burrows was worth his weight in cold – beer, that is – when he drained a hole in one at the Gosser Golf Tournament. The ace earned Burrows his weight in beer. He went on the finish 12th at the recent tournament. Burrows, from Comox, is now a head golf pro in Austria, where he runs the Mike Burrows Academy of Golf in Larchenof.

Whitewater rafting an adrenaline rush Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Maybe it was the post-safety demonstration thought of falling in, or the sight of the rushing water of the Puntledge River running at 75 cubic metres per second, but suddenly the thought of jumping in a raft made me incredibly nervous. Along with Record reporter Renée Andor and news reporter for 97.3 The Eagle Elizabeth Young, we had the opportunity last weekend to raft down the river — which scenically meanders into Courtenay — with Destiny River Adventures owner and guide Jamie Turko. The tour worked in conjunction with the Puntledge River Paddlefest, a time when BC Hydro provides a guaranteed river flow and access to a section of the

river. The Campbell River-based rafting company offers two trips a day down the river during the festival, and no experience is necessary to raft. After changing into our wetsuits, booties and helmets, we piled into our bus, rafts in tow, to our put-in spot, following back roads past the Puntledge River Hatchery. Turko, a Red Seal chef by trade and a 14-year experienced raft guide, took us through our safety demo, which included paddling instructions, what to do when —umm if — we fall in and how to move from one side of the raft to the other. After Turko warned us there is little time to ease into the river’s flows, we carried the raft down a short hill, and climbed in. It took only minutes in the raft

to find our first big wave, and sitting at the rear of the raft, I braced myself, not knowing what to expect, as Turko instructed us to paddle hard. As the raft went nose up in the air, water sprayed all of us, and to my delight, the same amount of people who were in the raft prior to the wave remained the same afterwards. After a few more kilometres, Turko offered us a turn at the controls — the large oars at the rear which he used to guide the raft. He explained how adjustments in the backstroke navigate the raft, and noted not to allow the oars to sink too deep, as they could easily hit the rocks at the bottom of the river. Coming up to another wave, the same nervous sensation when first looking out at the rushing

river suddenly came back. I looked at the five other people in the raft and the responsibility of keeping them inside made me nearly want to bail and swim to shore. With Turko’s instructions of making sure the nose of the raft was in line with the wave, we hit it straight on, soaking the media duo at the front. The trip was an excellent introduction into rafting, and to our delight, we remained inside the entire time. The adrenaline rush and sheer power of water pushing a small raft downstream was admittedly quite addictive; the next adventure may prove to be a full day on the Nimpkish or Campbell River.

Grade 7s will gather Renée Andor Record Staff

Comox Valley Grade 7 students will have a chance to celebrate their graduation as one big group thanks to seven local girls. Glow 2012 will be a district-wide graduation party June 15 in the multi-purpose room of the Comox Recreation Centre from 7 to 11 p.m. Rhianna Hamilton, Grade 7 Airport Elementary student, organized the event with six other girls from the 1st Courtenay Pathfinders, which helps girls between ages 12 and 14 meet new people, gain leadership skills, and have fun. Hamilton said the cancellation of Grade 7 camping trips this year was a small part of the group’s reason for organizing the event, but the bigger reason is to get everyone together. “Every year they have grad parties for the schools, but we

want to have something for the whole district for Grade 7s to do together,” said Hamilton. “It’s a way to meet new people outside of your school and basically meet a few new friends before you go to high school.” She added the group has never organized something like this before, but everything is pretty much planned already, and she expects the evening to be a blast. “I think it should be really exciting,” said Hamilton. “We’re going to have a DJ taking song requests … we’re going to have a photo booth, which should be good. There’s going to be food. There’s going to be nail painting in neon colours and glowin-the-dark colours.” Slushies, pizza, popcorn, hot dogs and candy bags will be on

sale, and there will be door prizes. And attendees can make music requests before the event via its Facebook page, Glow 2012. Further updates will be posted there. Tickets are $5 and will go on sale later this week or next week. Two hundred tickets are available and they will be on a first-come basis. Tickets are available to Grade 7 students only and will be sold personally by a Pathfinder at each school. Hamilton will sell them at Airport Elementary, Claire at Aspen, Darion at Brooklyn, Athena and Bernadette at Lake Trail, Ocean at Queneesh and Marley at Robb Road.

Rivers embraces new‘adventure’

Caitlin McKinnon

came about after Henderson was hired into a lead position on a television project with Halifax Film of DMX Media. The opportunity presented itself suddenly. “Thursday morning I was looking for daycare in the Valley for my eldest daughter,” laughs Rivers as she recalls the day of the job offer, “and Thursday evening we were moving to Halifax!” The surprise, she says, was certainly “bittersweet.” Although Rivers is embracing the profound change she and her family will encounter in Nova Scotia, she will miss the incredibly supportive and engaging community here. The Comox Valley is “the only place we’ve ever really known as a family,” Rivers explains. The older of her two daughters was only a year old when Rivers and her husband moved to the Valley from San Francisco. She concludes that while the Valley will always be home to a wealth of valued memories, “It’s time (for her and her family) to take on a new adventure.” Because the decision was made so unexpectedly, Rivers has had little time to “navigate the Our Big Earth transition,” but she wants “to be respectful both of the community we’ve been part of for the past six years and also of the community we’re going to.” Rivers confidently informs the Record that, “Our Big Earth will remain what it is.” The online publication will retain its “Vancouver Island focus,” with managing editor Susan Urie “spearheading content for the foreseeable future.” Readers and viewers can keep up with Rivers and her family at www.ourbigearth.com, www.facebook. com/ourbigearth, www. twitter.com/#!/ourbigearth and www.pinterest.com/ robinmrivers.

Record Staff

“The Comox Valley has been a good friend,” says a nostalgic Robin Rivers as she discusses plans for a cross-country move. After six years in the Valley, Rivers and her family will launch the next phase of their lives in Halifax. Rivers is senior partner at Our Big Earth Media Co. — one of Western Canada’s only recognized digital periodicals for families — and has garnered much attention and respect from Valley residents in past years. Local readers need not fear the loss of Rivers’ creative and candid voice; she will use social media to document the fast-approaching adventure. Starting May 31, Rivers and husband Ken Henderson will wake the kids, load up the family truck, and embark on a roughly 6,500-kilometre road trip to Nova Scotia; for 10 days, she will share their journey via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and ourbigearth.com. Rivers hopes the social media project will serve as “a charming, engaging and adaptive way to give people a personal look at the Canadian experience.” The trip will be a spirited learning experience, as Rivers and her family set eyes on all sorts of new territory. Rivers, who has never been to the East Coast, is especially excited to immerse herself in the “wonderfully vibrant literary and cultural community in Halifax.” Her older daughter — an outgoing young animal enthusiast — can’t wait to check out the Hope Wildlife Society in Seaforth, N.S. Those following Rivers’ journey can expect coverage of the family’s visits to several popular tourist destinations, including Drumheller and Niagara Falls. The decision to relocate

A new Fitzgerald Avenue cycling lane design is back on the table. After public input about one year ago was mixed on the design for off set bike lanes between 26th Street and Second Avenue — with some concerns around losing curb side parking — Courtenay staff reviewed it internally and made modifications. Courtenay director of operational services Kevin Lagan said the new design — which uses paint to designate cycling lanes on each side of the avenue — is as up-to-date as possible, and is similar to what’s used in Europe. He added staff took concerns about the loss of curb side parking into account, but even with this design some parking would have to go. Green painted zones indicate the area for cyclists along the road, with parts leading up to intersections left bare for vehicles to cross cyclists’ paths when making righthand turns. The double left turn lane in the middle of the road would be eliminated. The design has been looked at by the Cycling Public Advisory Committee, and the next step is getting B.C. cycling infrastructure consultant Richard Dru-

including cyclists at the present time, and I think what we have to do is look at how we can mix these different modes together safely,” he said. Coun. Jon Ambler noted the design is not perfect, but pointed out other cities have similar bike lanes, the design was created using the newest information available to City staff, and the design will be looked over by an expert. He added it’s been a year since Fitzgerald was chosen and moving the lanes to another street would only put off the project longer. “If we continue to, each time we get close to doing one street, say ‘well there’s a better street three blocks away,’ we’ll actually accomplish nothing and we’re not actually elected to accomplish nothing, we’ve been elected to get on with it,” said Ambler. Mayor Larry Jangula pointed out the elimination of some parking could cause public opposition to the design, as it was a concern with the previous design as well. “I guarantee you we’re going to get some serious push-back, especially if parking is eliminated, because some of them have businesses some of them have homes and in many cases there’s no back alley entrance,” he said.

Groups prepared to operate local homeless shelter Scott Stanfield Record Staff

The Wachiay Friendship Centre Society and M’akola Group of Societies are prepared to operate the Cliffe Avenue property that could be developed into an emergency homeless shelter or supportive housing unit. The groups are willing to undertake the planning, design, construction and management of the proposed facility. “So far, the regional district has said that they’re not going to do it,” Wachiay program director Roger Kishi said. “The mayor (Larry Jangula) has been very clear that the City of Courtenay is not going to do it. It really is going to be up to some other organization or entity to do that work. There’s all this uncertainty still around the property that’s already purchased.” The property in question is a trio of lots that the CVRD purchased in the 800 block of Cliffe Avenue, across the street from City Hall.

Kishi is a board member of M’akola, a Victoria-based aboriginal housing society, which manages upwards of 1,000 units of social housing in B.C., most on Vancouver Island. The groups forwarded their idea to the CVRD in February. The CVRD is awaiting the outcome of the City’s request for expressions of interest before considering further action related to the Cliffe Avenue properties. “Which seems now to have fizzled,” Kishi said. “There’s a lot of work that needs to be done still in our community. There’s still discussions out there about what form of housing could go onto that property. Maybe it doesn’t have to be a shelter, maybe it’s supportive or transitional housing.” Kishi, a Cumberland councillor, is also vicechair of the Comox Valley Housing Task Force, whose input on the matter has not been sought, he said. He notes B.C. Housing’s sentiment about speaking with one voice, but feels commu-

ROGER KISHI

nity consensus building is what’s needed. “I’m not sure that one voice is a realistic or achievable goal,” Kishi said. “At least with consensus, people either agree with it or can live with it. With an issue like the homeless shelter, I’m not sure that we can get 100 per cent agreement. But I think that we can get to a point where people can live with it.” ••• Kishi and other members of Cumberland council do not support a motion from Area B director Jim Gillis, who proposes the CVRD transfer the Cliffe Avenue properties to the City of Courtenay for $1 on condition that

the land — or proceeds from the land should the City dispose of the properties — be used for emergency shelter/ supportive housing purposes, as originally intended when the district purchased the properties. Gillis also proposes that $100,000 from a Vancouver Island Health Authority grant be transferred to the City to assist with the development of emergency shelter/supportive housing. “I don’t get it,” Coun. Kate Greening said at Monday’s meeting. “I would hope we vote no on it.” Gillis — in a letter to fellow members of the regional district board who were to discuss his motion Tuesday — further suggests the CVRD supports selling a 20-foot portion of 865 Cliffe Ave. to Det Kunz, who owns the neighbouring property, if the property is transferred to the City. His motion also calls for a repeal of a bylaw to establish an emergency shelter/supportive housing land acquisition service,

Marine auxiliary needs support Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Although some may ask what’s in a name, the newly minted Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue based at the Comox marina hope the change will bring about community support. The auxiliary station, which acts as a rescue society, has been on the coast for about 150 years, explained Jim Linderbeck, unit leader of the Comox Station 60. He noted the rebranding of the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary-Pacific to the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue is to bring about community attention to the volunteer group. “We need money and we need to raise funds to keep our vessels running and for training.

Although full extraction was not required, firefighters helped the single occupants of both vehicles to extricate themselves after the collision at about 7:15 p.m. on the Old Island Highway near Ryan Road in

East Courtenay. The roadway was reportedly slick at the time of the crash. Rain mingled with oil might have been a factor in the mishap, deputy chief Dennis Henderson of the Courtenay Fire Department said at the scene. Excessive speed could also have contributed, he added. Injuries to an unidentified man and a woman taken to hospital were undetermined.

then our area won’t be protected the way it should be protected,” he said to media. “We’re going to be doing the same as we did before, the only thing that’s changed is our name. The reason that we’ve changed our name is because this is locally owned, this is community owned.” The local station has been providing services to the community for more than 25 years and comprises of more than 48 active and supporting members of the community. Their area of coverage consists of Hornby Island to the south, to the middle of the Strait of Georgia to the north. Linderbeck said the society attended to about 40 rescue emergencies last year. “We’re trained, ready 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to go out on the water and rescue

or to help somebody in distress and that’s our job,” he added. “We’re part of the community. If we can’t replace our vessels and keep our crews safe ... what are we going to do? We’re losing some support and we’re going to become more involved in our area than what

we are right now.” Jim Brass, president of the Comox Valley Marine Search and Rescue Society said the society does not receive any money from the Canadian government, but solely from money raised within the community. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Help midwife to help women Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Jenna Falk plans to put her midwifery skills to use at an orphanage in Sierra Leone. The Black Creek woman hosts a Friday fundraiser dubbed A Chocolate Extravaganza for midwifery in the African country of Sierra Leone. Money raised will help finance her trip later in the year. Falk will spend about a year in the African nation along with another midwife whose father runs an orphanage in the country. “Our vision is to go and practise as midwives, and train birth attendants,” said Falk, noting a huge mortality rate among infants and mothers in Sierra Leone. There are just 70 to 80 doctors in the entire nation, she added, noting about 80 per cent of the deaths are preventable. Midwives are trained

Tickets to Friday’s fundraiser are $10, available from Falk at 250-337-8759, the Ski Surf & Kayak Shop on Fifth Street or the Black Creek MB Church. reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Over the past few months, the Comox Strathcona waste management service asked area residents in the Comox Valley and Strathcona Regional Districts abut waste and the responses were encouraging. Fourteen open houses and presentations were held across the region in March and April asking for feedback on options to create muchneeded landfill space, to manage yard waste and food scraps and to improve recycling for homes, apartments and businesses. A statistically-representative telephone survey was also conducted with 600 area residents. The consultation was completed as part of updating the region’s solid waste management plan — a plan that will guide decisions about future waste and recycling programs for the next 20 years. “The public’s input is critical in helping us make decisions about how we can best manage our waste in the future, including the selection of our future disposal facilities, such as landfills,” says Edwin Grieve, chair of the Comox Strathcona waste management board. “Thank you to all who provided their input. We are

better informed moving forward thanks to participation from communities in the Comox Valley and Strathcona regional districts.” Approximately 700 feedback forms were completed at the open houses or online. The large majority of feedback received through the open houses and online surveys is consistent with the results of the phone survey, which is considered to be statistically accurate within four per cent, 19 times out of 20. “We are pleased with the response to the open houses as well as the random telephone survey results,” adds Grieve. “The fact that the results of the statistically-representative phone survey are similar to what we heard at the open houses tells us that we are on the right track.” Some highlights of the results are: • 81 per cent of respondents would support a regional composting facility if it’s proven to be cost effective; • 73 per cent of respondents preferred expanding both regional landfills over expanding just one; • 61 per cent of those surveyed through feedback forms and 81 per cent of those surveyed via telephone would

Teen feeds Berwick When Berwick Comox residents discovered that one of their cherished dining room servers was Miss Teen Comox Valley, it didn’t take long for them to show their support for her fundraising efforts for Free The Children. With help from her Berwick colleagues, Somer McNeil put together an Italian-themed dinner for Berwick residents, which was served with flair by Somer and some of her friends.

Councillors want to hear Hydro Renée Andor Record Staff

Courtenay council wants to hear from BC Hydro before deciding whether to request a moratorium on smart meters from the province. The council chambers at city hall were packed last week as council heard from residents opposed to BC Hydro’s smart meters. The delegation urged council to ask for a moratorium on the mandatory installation of BC Hydro’s wireless smart meters until independent research on the meters is completed. BC Hydro plans to install smart meters in the Comox Valley over this summer. Coun. Starr Winchester made a motion to invite BC Hydro representative to a future council meeting to hear the company’s reasons for installation. “I think in order for us to make an informed decision we have to hear both sides of the equation,” said Winchester. Council voted in favour of the motion. Trudy Thompson, one of three delegation speakers, said she understands council’s desire to hear from BC Hydro before making a decision. “I understand that they need to talk to BC Hydro, but BC Hydro is one-sided and onesided only and that is to push forward this smart meter program no matter what the cost to the public, any

health effects, any concerns, and I mean it’s costing us dearly, not just with our money, but with our lives and our security,” said Thompson. Some of the concerns raised were: increased cost, threatened security to residents’ privacy and health risks. She also pointed out the new meters are not CSA approved. David Kirk, who also spoke against smart meters, said he asked BC Hydro not to install a smart meter on his property. “BC Hydro told me

that they would not be installing a hydro meter on my property, that it was noted, but if I refused again, that my hydro service would be denied to me,” Kirk told council. “I said I’d rather be in the dark than have one on my house.” He outlined instructions for residents to tell BC Hydro they do not want a smart meter installed on their property, which can be found at www. stopsmartmetersbc.ca. According to Kirk, 45 B.C. municipalities have passed motions

for moratoriums on mandatory installation until concerns have been addressed. Some councils have asked that BC Hydro offers opt out options to residents. Mayor Larry Jangula and Coun. RonnaRae Leonard agreed that hearing from BC Hydro does not mean council won’t request a moratorium on the meters. “All of us are concerned and I know that this is quite a large issue in the community,” said Jangula. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Scott and Worst some of the best

Photography students exhibiting art This Friday evening, join North Island College’s professional photography students at the Courtenay and District Museum for the opening of the program’s 15th showing of student work. The event marks a continuing collaboration between the museum and the photography program by utilizing the spacious second floor gallery. Alana Atto, Lori Bishop, Ava Breakwell, Jessie Cavanagh, Calista Fleming, Hannah Manfredi, Emily Murray, Tamara Newman, Amanda Snyder, Melodie Sucay-Tancon, Kareen Western and Bruce Wheatley will display personal favourites as well as images created especially for the show. Calista’s crisp images of necklaces contain a fairy tale element skillfully enhanced by carefully placed props. The drama and energy of a ‘splash’ is well captured by Alana’s photographs of falling objects colliding with liquid. Her challenge rests with an ability to react at the precise moment of impact, something that can be frustratingly rewarding as well as messy. Bishop has spent considerable time perfecting her images in this time-honored application of natural light portraiture. She enthusiastically merges poses with personalities including a composite self-portrait shot on location that depicts her personal transformation throughout the program. Wheatley applies his graphic design experience to his renderings of that loved and, for some, regretted part of our lives… the vehicle. He sees the subject as an art form and has created colorful detailed photographic abstract representations of vehicles and the culture surrounding them. Design in nature, specifically the vibrant colors, texture and shapes woven into peacock

feathers, has lured Snyder’s imagination and camera. For Breakwell, the rich colours, elegance and spirit-lifting essence of flora, whether domestic or wild, is a visual pleasure. For Manfredi, it’s the spring time appearance of willow bushes in bloom. Using shallow depth-of-field focus, she articulates their soft, mystical form. Spiders have caught Cavanagh’s attention and earned her immediate reaction from friends with her strikingly composed macro photographs of arachnids in their habitat. Without light there would be no show, no program and no photographers. Murray understands this well as she likewise appreciates the opportunities for creativity associated with long

exposures and unusual methods of digitally capturing light. Rather than making abstract renderings of light, Western has embraced the traditional capture of black and white photography. Sucay-Tancon’s keen interest and dedication to sports is clearly evident in her action packed shots of athletes caught at the decisive moment of effort and achievement. Meanwhile, Newman turns her photographic eye from people to their surroundings in colour panoramas made in the Campbell River area. The show ends June 15. The Courtenay and District Museum is at 360 Cliffe Ave. across the street corner from the Sid Williams Theatre. — Courtenay and District Museum

Join Dale Graham (vocals), Rick Husband (guitar), and John Hyde (bass) for tasty music at 7:30 p.m. this Friday. Treat your tastebuds with the Zo’s mouthwatering entrees, featuring locally-sourced meat and vegetarian dishes. Hyde is to jazz music what chocolate is to dessert. Have you ever met a dessert that didn’t taste better with

chocolate? John has a wealth of experience in performing, arranging, composing, and teaching jazz. In his hands, the acoustic bass finds the perfect mix of personality, and precision. Husband is the peanut butter of guitarists. Smooth or crunchy, his playing is compelling and responsive. He communicates beautifully to listeners by integrating improvised lines with familiar motifs and genres. Graham’s delicious

If you’re in the mood for “simple, classic comfort food” with a languid atmosphere and a peaceful view complete with trees and deer, you should consider Longlands Golf Course. Marty Smith and his wife Donna have leased the course for two years. They opened the licensed restaurant this spring after it was closed for those two years. “Longlands has been kind of a treasure in the community for 30 years and after (we were) operating the golf course for a couple of years, there was a lot of people disappointed that the restaurant had been closed,” Marty explains. ”We gave it a lot of thought before doing it (reopening), but we’re glad we did. “The response has been really good.” Longlands is renewing a long-standing tradition as a family restaurant, Marty states. “There’s a whole generation who had memories out at Longlands Golf Course, and now they’re bringing their kids out,” he continues. “We’re seeing that a lot, especially on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, things like that. So we’ve got the whole next generation bringing their families out to create new memories.” The Smiths’ three children are fixtures at the course, although they’re too young yet to pitch in and help. Marty takes care of golf operations and “some back-end stuff” in the kitchen, while Donna oversees the front part of the restaurant and bookkeeping. “We try not to step on each other’s toes, but we do regularly,” Marty laughs. “It’s just part of being partners,” Donna chimes in. After being part of the golf industry in Kelowna for 15 years, the Smiths came to the Island five years ago. Leaving the Okanagan was no hardship because of where they live now. “We love it out here,” comments Marty. “A lot of people say to us, ‘How could you leave Kelowna?’ but look what we left it for. It’s a great place to raise a family.” Regular customers are the staple of their business, notes Marty. Golfers at Longlands

companion for them. The bruschetta (some of which I took home to my appreciative wife) was topped appealingly with tomato, red onion, roasted red peppers and meltin-your-mouth goat cheese. My tastebuds were rewarded when I chewed the sprig of lemon oregano atop the appetizer. I should have thanked the chef (one of three at Longlands) for growing it in his garden. While sipping red wine, I enjoyed the view, which at some point was augmented by the appearance of two foraging deer. For the main course, I could have ordered shrimp and Caesar salad, chicken curry, a cheeseburger, New York steak or shrimp penne. I had second thoughts about not choosing the pasta (Donna’s recommendation), but any doubt was dispelled when my blackened cod arrived. I bypassed mashed potatoes and chose wild rice (not really rice but a kind of grain) to accompany my sixounce fillet. Seasonal veggies augmented the fish, but the best part was a delectable fresh peach salsa that perfectly complemented the spices used to blacken the cod. Munching on the sprig of freshly harvested mint cleansed my palate and prepared me for a slab of warm pie and ice cream to cap an enjoyable meal that was a welcome end to a working week. Back home, I presented my wife with a piece of vanilla cheesecake that she said was the best she has ever tasted. ••• Longlands serves breakfast (until 11:30) and lunch daily, with dinner Fridays and Saturdays.

Betties to battle Riot on Sunday

THE COMOX VALLEY Riptide turned in a bronze medal performance at a tournament in Kamloops.

Riptide third at Kamloops For the May long weekend, the U-14 Girls Riptide travelled to Kamloops for the 2012 Slurpee Cup soccer tournament. They played four games in the Tournament Capital of B.C. with 157 other teams from B.C. and Alberta. First up was another Island team, the Prospect Lake Lakers, in what proved to be a spirited contest resulting in a 5-2 Riptide victory where each goal was scored by a different player. Player of the Game was Amelia Helpard from Comox. The second game was against the ultimately first place team Edmonton Juventus. It was a very competitive game with Edmonton taking a 1-0 lead before the Riptide tied the game late in the second half for a welldeserved 1-1 tie. Player of the Game was Ankia Shelrud from Campbell River. The first game Sunday was an 8:30 a.m. kickoff against Prince George Kodiaks. A spectacular goal early in the first half earned Sloan Hofmann, from Cumberland, Player of the Game. The final score was an encouraging 2-0 for the Riptide.

VIU Mariners ID camp in Nanaimo Record Staff Vancouver Island University Mariners women’s soccer is hosting an Open ID Camp for Grade 10,11 and 12 players. The session goes Saturday, June 2 from 12 to 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park in Nanaimo. All athletes interested are invited. For more information, contact head coach Anup Kang at anup.kang@viu.ca or 250-756-8595. The Mariners have two Courtenay players in their lineup as defender Sarah Meredith and defender/midfielder Samantha Rodgers are both in their freshmen year with the Nanaimo team. Both are G.P. Vanier grads: Meredith is studying physical education while Rodgers is in the nursing program.

Headed into the fourth and final game, Riptide had a chance at taking home first place in the tournament. After two gruelling halves, Vernon United scored a winning goal on a controversial play with one minute left. The keeper Cassidy Wood was voted Player of the Game for her outstanding work in goal. The girls ended the tournament in third place with the highest overall goals scored in their division. The team would like to thank their sponsors, Comox Valley RV and Sea Roamer Marine Services for their financial support this year. They helped the team purchase new equipment and contributed to the funds necessary to make the trip to Kamloops possible. – U14 Riptide

Golfers swing in Ontario tourney Courtenay golfers Logan Yanick and Mark Valliere were in Bath, Ont. for the May 25-27 CN Future Links Ontario Championship at the 6,625-yard, par72 Loyalist Golf and Country Club. Yanick finished in a two-way tie for 14th at five-over 221. He got the tourney off to a good start on Friday, as he was just one shot off the lead in third place after an opening round 71. A second-round 74 dropped him into a three-way tie for fourth before carding a final-round 76 on Sunday. Valliere’s opening round 74 had him in a five-way tie for 15th, and a second-round

due on March 15. “We decided to submit a bid for several reasons. Primarily because it is (the Glacier Kings) 20th anniversary and we feel it is a great tribute to our community and our fans. “As well, our community needs something to get excited about as we haven’t really had any showcase hockey events since the Olympics or the World Juniors. I’m not suggesting that this event is ‘up there’ with those but it is the NHL of

Junior B hockey.” Webb said advance buy tickets to the public other than sponsorship packages will probably go on sale in the new year. This past season the Abbotsford Pilots won the 2012 Cyclone Taylor Cup and went on to capture the Western Junior B championship, the Keystone Cup. The win gave British Columbia three of the past four Keystone Cup victories. sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

The beach volleyball duo of Martin Reader of Comox and Josh Binstock of Toronto made it to the main draw of the Prague stop on the FIVB World Tour last week, winning three matches in qualifying. They defeated two Italian pairs including Andrea Tomatis and Matteo Martino, 21-14, 21-14 in the second round as well as Dawid Popek and Michal Makowski of Poland 21-18, 22-20 in the third to grab one of the eight available spots for the main draw. Reader-Binstock lost to the Czech team of Premysl Kubala-Petr Benes 21-17, 21-16 in the first round of the main draw then were eliminated by the Brazilian duo of Ricardo Alex Costa Santos-Pedro Henrique Cunha 15-21, 23-21, 10-15. There was no shame in that loss, however, as Ricardo-Cunha went on to win the tournament. The team of Christian Redmann of Toronto and Ben Saxton of Calgary also advanced to the main draw and made it to round four. Both Canadian teams are looking to be the top-two Canadian pairs on the Tour by midJune so they can compete at the Continental Cup Olympic qualifier. Maverick Hatch of Comox and Sam Schachter of Toronto were eliminated in the second round of qualifying in Prague. Meanwhile, Canada’s beach volleyball athletes continue to spend their own money or borrow from Volleyball Canada as they travel to tournaments in an attempt to qualify for the Summer Olympics.

week’s Record sports, carding money from Sport Canada’s Athlete Assistance Plan has been held back for six months by a Volleyball Canada appeal concerning a player who had been cut from the men’s team. Canadian Athletes Now has set up an emergency fund, and Conrad Leinemann (former Olympic beach volleyball player and COO of CAN Fund) said the group has so far been able to release $3,500 to 16 athletes to help cover the costs of travel, hotel and food to Prague, Moscow and Rome. “None of the athletes have received one dollar from Own the Podium. Volleyball Canada or their carding money,” Leinemann noted in a press release. “So, we have left the fundraiser open.” More information about and donations to

Active Comox Valley’s Robyn Butler and Patti Fletcher of Simon’s Cycles, want you to know you can win this Kona Dew commuter bicycle. Register yourself or your Bike to Work team at www.biketowork.ca/comox_valley to become eligible to win the bike, which is courtesy of Simon’s Cycles. Remember, you don’t have to work in an office — some people work at home, are caregivers at home, or are retired — so any trip by bike that replaces a car trip counts. It can be to school, the store, to meet a friend for coffee, to the gym, or anywhere really.

MUNICIPAL CHALLENGE The Comox Valley Cycling Coalition is inviting all staff and council of Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and the Regional District to participate in a municipal challenge. The municipality with the most rides (adjusted proportionally to the number of eligible participants — anyone on the community’s payroll) to work done by staff and members of council during Bike to Work Week will win a trophy and bragging rights until the following year. Each municipality should appoint a leader for their team. Contact Ed Schum by e-mail at edschum@shaw.ca or phone 250-338-1653 for more info.

Assistance available During Bike to Work Week BCAA is offering free Bike Assist roadside assistance for bicycles to all participating BTWW cyclists — BCAA member or not — in case they experience a problem

during their ride. Not only that, BCAA will extend its free Bike Assist offer to all cyclists for the rest of June in commemoration of Bike Month. For more info, visit www. bcaa.com/bikeassist.

Her radiant smile, determined work-ethic and ready willingness to embrace new adventures will always be missed by her friends and family. Her family would like to thank everyone who helped make her last few months on Earth the happiest and very best time of her life. Her close friends Jesse, Kareen, Amanda and Hanna were especially appreciated. Her instructors at North Island College did a superb job helping her find her true calling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boomerâ&#x20AC;? was frequently quoted as a great teacher. An art and photography show in mid June will act as a fitting memorial to my girl. Details will be published as they are confirmed.

A sudden gentle breeze can turn that sheet and change everything forever in a moment. Love your family well.

Boaters cleanse island The Comox Valley Yacht Club (CVYC) are stewards of Sandy Island, commonly called Tree Island by the locals. Almost 40 Yacht Club members scoured the island on a recent Sunday for winterblown garbage and litter. Derek Moore, BC Marine Parks area supervisor, who is new to this area, helped with the cleanup. Many bags of garbage were collected along with a lot of shellfish growers’ containers and equipment that had been washed up. The pile of garbage was left at the high tide mark and picked up and disposed of by Clark Munroe of the BC Shellfish Growers Association. A good time was had by all with a barbecue on the island before the 11 boats departed. The CVYC also usually has a member and boat moored at Tree island buoy for every weekend of July and August. They hand out brochures about the Island, answer questions, and remind visitors that no fires are allowed. The visitors seem to appreciate their presence. The Friends of Tree Island Organization also have a group of volunteers that come from Denman Island and mark trails to protect the rare flora that grows on the island and also maintains the two washrooms. — Comox Valley Yacht Club

THE BACK COUNTRY Horsemen of B.C. have built a hitching rail and parking area for the benefit of riders preparing to depart on the One Spot Trail.

One Spot Trail riders assisted Comox Valley equestrians are thrilled with the addition of a parking area and hitching rail that was installed late this winter on Burns Road, just east of Condensory Road. The roadside pullout is big enough to accommodate two trucks and horse trailers and ensures the safety of both horses and riders as they prepare to ride along the historic One Spot Trail. The hitching rail was installed by members of the Vancouver Island Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen Society of BC (BCHBC). “Development of this natural soil and packed gravel trail was made possible with Comox Valley Regional District funding and the combined efforts of many volunteers from Back Country Horsemen, Comox Valley Land Trust, Dove Creek Community Association and the Comox Valley Naturalists Society,” explains Sharon Pickthorne, treasurer for the BCHBC and an active member of the Vancou-

ver Island chapter of this organization. The One Spot Trail begins at Condensory Road (near Cessford Road) and ends up near the Tsolum River. While this may be “one great spot to ride/walk/cycle,” this eight-kilometre long trail is actually named after the first locomotive that was used on a railway line constructed here over 100 years ago. One Spot was the nickname for a woodburning Baldwin steam locomotive that was built in 1909 and used to transport timber from the various logging camps in the region up until 1943. The railway tracks were removed in 1954, after the main logging operations at Headquarters Road were shut down. The land lay dormant for the next five decades. It was officially developed and des-

ignated as a multi-use recreational trail for horseback riding, walking and cycling (but not ATVs) in 2008. Interpretive signs along the path describe the past, present and future of the area. For more information on BCHBC, call Sharon Pickthorne at 250-337-1818) or visit

Cafe offers food safe, barista training Royston Roasting Company’s new Coffee House has teamed with Island Gourmet Trails owner and chef/teacher Gaetane Palardy to offer the B.C. certification Food Safe course. Palardy is a certified trainer in Food Safe Level 1 and the café is providing the perfect venue for participants to learn inside a food service environment. “Summer is coming and most Comox Valley restaurants, cafes and food concessions are looking for employees who must have their BC Food Safe certification to work in the industry,” says Royston Coffee House owner Dyan Spink. Who should take Food Safe? “Not just restaurant

and food service workers, but high school students looking for work, community volunteers and even your backyard barbecue chef who prepares food for family and friends can benefit from knowing how to prevent food-borne illnesses,” Palardy said. The first Level 1 course will be held Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Royston Roasting Company Coffee House, 3904 Island Highway S. Cost is $99, which includes a BC Certificate, Food Safe Manual, lunch and beverages. Preregistration is required in person, or at 250338-7511 or roystonroasting@gmail.com. From 9 a.m.—3 p.m. June 10, Spink

will offer her barista course which will teach all aspects of espresso, cappuccino, specialty coffees, teas, iced drinks preparation and allaround café operation and equipment maintenance. Participants will receive a barista certificate and a work experience shift in the café. “Two of our former barista students got jobs and travelled and worked in cafes all over Australia and New Zealand. “We have also received calls from local cafes in the past to send the trained baristas to them for employment opportunities,” Spink said. The course is $90. Location and registration as above.

Early bird incentives for small biz expo The Comox Valley Home-Based Business Association is offering early-bird incentives to exhibit at the eighth annual Small Biz trade show Sept. 29 at the Native Sons Hall. In an effort to showcase the Valley’s small businesses in location, the HBBA has opened exhibit space to nonmembers, with the only criteria being that the business is not a bigbox store. “This show is a perfect opportunity for small businesses to showcase their products or services to the community — allowing ‘well-kept secrets’ some vital exposure,” said Donna Clairmont, the HBBA’s director of community events. “In addition to gaining public exposure for their businesses, the bonus for non-members to participate is a chance to see what a dynamic and diverse group of business professionals belong to the HBBA. The nonmembers will see how beneficial joining this 14-year-old non-profit group can be for the their entrepreneurial efforts.” The early bird incentive for booth space booked by July 15 includes a 10 per cent savings per booth and entry into a draw for

Amazing new technology no substitute for station Editors are often impressed with the wisdom of readers, even more when compared to politicians fatuously toeing the party line. E.A. Foster was bang on with his May 23 assessment of a decision to close three B.C. Coast Guard stations, including the one at Comox that is responsible for covering Johnstone Strait, Queen Charlotte Strait and southern Queen Charlotte Sound. Some of Foster’s friends have died at sea. “I have watched marine gas stations blow up in the Vancouver Harbour, boats explode, pleasure craft lose their engines, people fall overboard,” the Now is not letter contin- the time to pull ues. T h e such a vital and chance of people dying at necessary service sea is lessened by the quick for a few million response time of a nearby dollars. vessel manned by dedicated, Bruce Jaffary courageous people. E c h o ing Foster’s thoughts, fellow Comox resident Bruce Jaffary writes to say he and his wife have observed a tremendous growth in the amount of vessels and people on the water since the 1960s. “Now is not the time,” he writes, “to pull such a vital and necessary service for a few million dollars.” In a humourous, yet serious aside, he suggests the government could drop free-spending MP Bev Oda from cabinet to save the $11 million it says it will achieve by closing Coast Guard stations in 2015. Canadians do not appreciate a government cutting a service that saves lives when we know in our hearts how easily our tax dollars are wasted. Islanders cannot appreciate hearing MP John Duncan parrot the party line by trumpeting a “consolidation” of a service that will forward emergency calls from this area to Prince Rupert. No amount of amazing new technology can replace a fast boat nearby.

Harper’s foes don’t know history Dear editor, There are still people who complain that 60 per cent of Canadian voters cast their ballots for somebody other than Stephen Harper. That in someway that makes the current government less legitimate. I think they do not know their Canadian history. Only five of the elected 22 prime ministers have not had the majority of Canadians voted against them. Of the 41 federal elections since Confederation 30 times it was majority government but only six times has the majority of Canadians actually voted for the prime minister; Wilfrid Laurier with 50.25 per cent in 1900, 50.88 per cent in 1904; Borden 56.93 per cent in 1917; Mackenzie King 51.32 in 1940; Diefenbaker 53.66 per cent in 1958.

him. In the past 72 years, despite having nine majority governments, the Liberal prime ministers have always had the majority of Canadians vote against the Liberal party. Chretien had at least 58.76 per cent of Canadians vote against him in each of his three majorities. Trudeau had at least 54.63 per cent of Canadians vote against him in his three majorities. No Liberal prime minister since Mackenzie King in 1940 has had most the Canadian voters vote for them. Of course, moving to a proportional representation will almost ensure that the majority of Canadian will have cast their ballot for somebody other than the prime minister. Nina Usherwood, Comox

What is Prime Minister Stephen Harper afraid of? ment claims they are doing “responsible resource development.” But a “secret” Environment Canada report, released under access to information laws, shows that to be false. (See www.frankejames.com/pdf/ ATIP-Oilsands-Pollution. pdf). The May 2011 report states that contamination of the Athabasca River is a “high profile concern.” It cited recent studies which suggest that “elevated levels of pollutants near mining sites including hydrocarbons and heavy metals raises questions about possible effects on health of wildlife and downstream communities.” The government report also said that current data cannot generate a “big

picture” view of impacts on the ecosystem. And that “oil sands development will continue to put pressure on vulnerable species.” Surprisingly, Minister Joe Oliver — the man who has travelled across Canada pitching the need to speed up environmental reviews — said he’d never seen the secret government report and didn’t know whether the fish from the Athabasca River were safe to eat. (When pressed, he admitted that he had heard about deformed and contaminated fish in the news.) Why is the government looking the other way? Is this ‘environmental racism’ as the First Nations contend? Does this mean that

Dear editor, What is Stephen Harper afraid of? Rivers that turn black and run into the sea? Birds falling from a heavy sky? People fleeing a toxic land? Or maybe Harper is most afraid of — tar sands oil being labelled dirty. I am writing because I am afraid of the Harper government’s plans to build the Northern Gateway pipeline straight through the Rocky Mountains. And the Great Bear Rainforest — all to facilitate the expansion and export of tar sands oil, which Environment Canada identifies as our “fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions.” With all the changes that Harper is making...

• Gutting the fisheries act; • Trashing the environmental assessment act; • Overruling the National Energy Board; • Barring environmental groups from hearings; • Barring Canadian citizens from hearings (unless they live or work in the area); • Speeding up environmental reviews; • Slashing Environment Canada’s budget; • Silencing scientists (and anyone who disagrees with the Harper government); • Lifting the 40-year ban on tankers on B.C.’s coast....we could be hit with some major environmental catastrophes. The Harper govern-

There is no choice with meters

Courage, humility are rare

Dear editor, With most wireless devices there is some choice. You may choose to live away from cellphone towers, and choose not to use a cellphone, etc. With wireless meters, there is no choice. Now that the World Health Organization has placed wireless radiation on the class 2B carcinogen list, reasonable people are calling for an immediate halt to this smart meter project and a recall of all related equipment. Let’s not follow the USA where in 1996 the Telecommunications Act took away freedom to take legal action against the wireless industry. In 1998 this legislation was strengthened to absolve the wireless industry of any liability. On www.youtube.com/ watch?v=FLeCTaSG2-U, Rob States presents The Dark Side of Smart Meters. One of many items mentioned is the San Francisco Tower study (AM, FM and TV waves), which has caused a huge increase in certain childhood cancers. Let’s not follow blindly.

Thanks for Ombudsperson Dear editor, I am writing as a senior who is married to an even older senior. I want to say “thank you” to the provincial government for having Kim Carter as our Ombudsperson. She and her researchers have done excellent work with their report The Best of Care: Getting it Right for Seniors in British Columbia, (Part 2). Kim Carter and two of her staff, Bruce Ronayne and Carly Hyman, recently came to our SOS (Support Our Seniors) Comox Valley meeting and gave a PowerPoint presentation on their report. All at the meeting applauded every single one

of the recommendations in the report and hope that the Ministry of Health and the government will oversee the implementation of

them. I want to urge that you renew Kim Carter’s term as Ombudsperson since we are very lucky indeed to have such an experienced and skilled person in that important role. The staff in that department should also be augmented as needed, since their work is of the highest order. Our SOS group is submitting a whole report to the provincial government, but I wanted to add my voice individually since it is an opportunity for me to say something positive about the provincial government!

WHAT IS THE government going to come up with next? Now they want to close Coast Guard stations down! How stupid is that? Obviously, this is all about money — think it is time to let go of some of your salaries! The rest of us are suffering with low salaries against a high cost of living, so why not the government? They don’t listen to what our wishes are in regards to water or smart meters. The hydro company uses all sorts of excuses, as to why your hydro bill is higher than the previous month, though one hasn’t done anything different (this with old meters still). One is in an accident, but you are not hurt, as the car is minimally damaged, according to them, though one suffers for years from pain, etc. Everyone is paying higher taxes, but the services have been dropped, such as many roads are unsafe to drive on! The ditches use to be clear, now flooding will happen, due to them being full of small trees and bushes! One has to pull out into a main road to see if any cars are coming, due to bushes blocking views! I could go on, but I think everyone knows what life is like with the type of government we

you and me. Bill C-38 is a dangerous bill that will change the face of Canada. Canada’s environmental international standing will be dragged further through the proverbial mud as the federal government invites the oil industry to treat the natural environment in a manner similar to standards applied in developing nations to foster economic growth. Tell the oil industry and the Harper government that doing business in Canada must include protecting our air, land, water, wildlife and people from oil pollution. Please stand up for Canada.

Second, it appears the editor has taken personal responsibilty in acknowledging his failing or weakness or whatever it was. To err and make mistakes is human — and the only real mistake I know is when one doesn’t learn from one’s mistakes. In this, I believe Mark Allan showed humility. These two hallmark characteristics are rare in today’s world. Alan Turner, Courtenay

published it, and I have been grateful. I would say to Mr. Grant but two things. First, be grateful to Mr. Allan for his personal emotional security. I can only assume that Mr. Grant’s letter required a sanction from the editor. In which case, Mark Allan was prepared to print something for the eyes of the Comox Valley public, knowing full well it was aimed at none other but himself. That takes courage.

Dear editor, I did not see the editorial (dated May 4), written by the Record’s editor, Mark Allan. Therefore I am not cognizant of the subject matter, nor the reasons behind the strong letter written by Tom Grant (Record, May 23). In the past, I have myself spent time writing to Mark Allan, only to have the editor ignore my work ... cull it ... or downright refuse to print it! Other times, he has

poisoning downstream communities and wildlife, is just the “cost of doing business” in Canada? The government and the oil industry need to be held accountable for the pollution from oil sands mining. Canadian taxpayers and oil sands investors are at risk of class-action lawsuits if we look the other way. In less than two weeks, Bill-C38 could be passed. If it passes, it would undo decades of environmental law and give the oil industry free rein to build pipelines and expand the oil sands, largely without input or double-checks from environmental scientists, environmental advocates or public participation — from people like

Thanks to all the friends and family that came out to test drive a new vehicle. Thanks to Westview Ford’s staff, who volunteered their time for the event. I WAS HEADING south on the upper Island Highway, last Wednesday afternoon in my RV with my two little boys. A vanload of Vanier girls passed me yelling and pointing down to the back of the RV. When I looked behind in the rear view, I saw something blue dragging behind me. I pulled over to see what was going on. It was a sewer hose that had come loose and had wound itself around the tires and the braking system. Another 10 minutes of driving it would have broken the brake line. We could have been in a terrible accident. It was very considerate for these girls to give me some warning. It is very much appreciated. Some kind of announcement to say thank you to them, from me, would be wonderful.
