Fire guts vacant house I
EARLY MORNING blaze destroys home in Westwood area. THE NEWS BULLETIN
An early mor ning fire destroyed an old farmhouse off Westwood Road Friday. Rick Kwasnecha, fire investigator with Nanaimo Fire Rescue, said when crews were called to the scene around 3:30 a.m., the blaze in the twostorey house was already fully involved. The fire destroyed half of the walls and part of the roof of the house, which was vacant for about a month. Neighbour Corey Piket was up attending to his sick baby son when he looked out the window and spotted the blaze. “All of a sudden the house went from nothing to engulfed in flames, an inferno,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything burn that big and so quickly. Talking to 911, I said, ‘If you don’t get here quick, it’s going to be gone.’” Piket estimates the house was rendered to a burned-out shell after about 10 minutes. His family was up watching fire crews battle the blaze over the next couple of hours. The house is located on a gravel drive that branches off from Westwood Road and Piket said if he hadn’t been awake to spot the blaze, flames could easily have spread – there is a stand of trees behind the house and a campground behind those trees.
Crown looking for dangerous offender status

POLICE ISSUED public advisory in 2007 on man convicted of sex assault. BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN
CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN
Rick Kwasnecha, fire prevention officer, photographs the charred remains of a home on Westwood Road that was destroyed in a blaze early Friday. Nanaimo Fire Rescue and police investigators are picking through the debris to determine why the fire broke out in the vacant house.
“It was just a fluke that we were up with the baby,” he said. Dave Johnson, who lives about 200 metres away on the gravel road, said he could feel the heat of the fire from his place. He was wakened by the fire trucks rushing to the scene. “You couldn’t see much, just a big, orange ball,” he said. Kwasnecha said the house
was built in the 1920s or 1930s and the old construction, with all-wood interior and no drywall, ensured that once the fire got going, it went up fast. The recent cool, rainy weather probably stopped the fire from doing any further damage. “If it would have been dry, it probably would have expanded,” he said. Kwasnecha hadn’t deter-
mined what started the fire by press time Friday. He said the owner, who didn’t live on site and rented out the house, was checking to see if he had insurance. Although investigators stated it was too early to say Friday morning whether the fire was suspicious, the RCMP’s serious crimes unit was on scene. email@example.com
A man who was the subject of a public advisory five years ago and convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in Nanaimo last summer could be labelled a dangerous offender. Crown counsel intends to ask that a dangerous offender assessment be conducted on Kenneth Wayne Gillespie, 65, who was found guilty in B.C. Supreme Court in Nanaimo May 31 of one count of sexual assault and one count of assault. The dangerous offender provisions of Canada’s Criminal Code are intended to protect the public from the most dangerous, violent and sexual predators in the country. When an individual is designated a dangerous offender, the court can impose either an indeterminate sentence with no chance of parole for seven years, a regular sentence plus a long-term supervision order in the community of up to 10 years after the regular sentence has expired, or a regular sentence of imprisonment for the offence. Police issued a public advisory notice in 2007 when Gillespie moved to Nanaimo. He had just been released after serving a 14-year sentence for a sexual assault committed in Nanaimo while on statutory release for a 1986 sexual assault in Campbell River. ◆ See ‘LATEST’ ‘ /4

Agility dogs qualify for nationals A Months of practising pays off for local teams at regional trials event held at Beban Park
Dog agility basics ◆ THE STANDARD includes a variety of between 18 and 22 obstacles in a predesigned sequence. This is what many see as the bread and butter of trialing while the non-standard classes like jumpers are the games and where the fun is. Dogs can earn up to 100 points in this event. ◆ JUMPERS is all about jumps, jumps and more jumps with maybe a few tunnels thrown in. This 75-point course needs quick turns, teamwork and nothing that slows down the pace. ◆ GAMBLERS has each obstacle assigned a certain number of points. Obstacles with contacts like the A-frame, teeter and dog walk have higher point values. The dog starts with zero points and accumulates them as she takes obstacles. Mini gambles are groupings of obstacles that when taken correctly and from a distance earn extra points. The final gamble must be completed correctly after a buzzer sounds and within 18 seconds to receive any extra time points.
BY BETH HENDRY-YIM THE NEWS BULLETIN
og agility teams were jumping through hoops in preparation for the Agility Association of Canada Regional Championship held at Beban Park June 8-10. For two local teams, the work paid off. Over the past few months Tressia Toole and Anne Charlton ramped up practice with their canine partners in preparation for this event, as it’s a stepping-stone to the prestigious national competition and for the first time both events are being held on home turf in Nanaimo. Competition at the regional level draws teams from all over B.C., the Yukon, Washington and Oregon. Dogs compete in individual games; two standard, two jumpers and two gamblers. Within each game obstacles or series of obstacles earn points. Each day the dog runs one of each collecting points. At the end of the competition points are totalled. The dog with BETH HENDRY-YIM/NEWS BULLETIN the highest Tressia Toole and Sugar score wins, with their second place rib- while dogs bon from the recent regional that reach dog agility trials. a minimum number of 350 points qualify for nationals. Charlton, who lives in Nanoose and is easily recognized by the agility equipment set up in her backyard, ran two border collies, Queen and Daisy, and Nick, her rescue cross. Nick has stood on the podium before, at both regionals and at nationals in 2010, placing eighth in his group. He’s a veteran with almost 10 years of agility work under his collar. Charlton picked him up at the SPCA when he was two months old and they’ve been a working team ever since. “I went to the shelter to look at cats and got sidetracked by the dogs. When

we saw Nick that was it. He’s been a fantastic dog, steady and consistent,” Charlton said. “But most important he listens. Our practice is mostly for me so I’ll know where I need to be.” Toole, who’s played agility since she was 12 after getting her first dog Sugar, a reliable, aptly named chocolate lab, is in her 10th year. Agility is a sporting event that involves teamwork and a special connection between dog and handler. The team needs to navigate a series of obstacles within a set time. The obstacles include tunnels, chutes, jumps, A-frames, collapsible tires, dog walks, weave poles and a teeter. It requires training, strategy, and lots of positive reinforcement, but most importantly, patience. At the end of Saturday, Nick and his human were running in second place in their group. Toole and Sugar were in even better position at the top of the veteran pack with three perfect runs in gamblers, jumpers and standard. Excitement had all three vibrating with energy with a podium finish only three runs away. Running agility obstacles with a canine partner is like a carefully planned dance with front and rear
crosses, post turns, pull thrus and slight or dramatic use of hand placement and shoulder gestures. Turn too much and the dog may think he needs to move forward when he needs to stay back. Place the hand in the wrong position and he may think he’s to run the tunnel instead of taking a jump. “Most mistakes are not made by the dog but by the handler in the way they move or don’t move their body,” said Bernadette Van Klaveren, a 20-year veteran of agility competitions and owner/operator of Dawg Agility in Cedar. Charlton’s first run on Sunday was clean, but in jumpers, Nick cut in front and took the wrong tunnel entry. “I lost my concentration at that point and couldn’t remember where I was and sent him over two incorrect jumps,” Charlton said. For Toole, Sunday started well with Sugar pulling off a perfect run in both standard and jumpers classes. Going in to the final run, a gamble, Sugar needed points on obstacles, as their competition, a fast border collie, could take the lead in time points. The first mini gamble landed only single points as Sugar uncharacteristically missed placing at

least two paws on the yellow contact zone. “When the buzzer went for the final gamble, we were in the zone. I wasn’t prepared for any mistakes. It wasn’t a hard combination; she could have done it with her eyes closed,” said Toole “I don’t know what happened but she took the wrong jump missing out on 35 points.” Forty-five seconds can seem like hours in the agility ring when things go wrong, but so does waiting for final results. Competitors don’t know the scores of other teams so it’s a waiting game at the results ceremony. With more than 450 dogs entered getting through each category and jump level seem interminable. When the aggregate scores were finally read, Charlton’s Daisy had placed 15th in the highly competitive 16-inch regular group, with Queen taking 14th in 22-inch. All three, including Nick, qualified for nationals. Sugar placed second in 22-inch veteran division, finishing with an aggregate score of 596, only 54 points behind the first place winner. Both teams will take time off from training for a much needed rest, but then practice will start once again in earnest as the next leap is on August 1-5 when the national competition comes to Nanaimo.

Planning for Cedar’s village centre received recognition recently. The Regional District of Nanaimo’s Cedar Main Street Design Project received an honorable mention award from the Planning Institute of British Columbia. Greg Keller, RDN senior planner, accepted the Award of Excellence in Planning Practice, Small Town and Rural Areas, at the 2012 PIBC Annual Conference May 29 to June 1. “The Cedar Main Street Design Project is an RDN-facilitated community planning and design initiative that is the first planning exercise of its kind in our electoral area,” said Area A director Alec McPherson, in a press release. The PIBC awards recognize the efforts of planners to turn policy into reality, whether it is crafting a new urban space, protecting the industrial land base, using community partnerships to secure funding for much needed projects, engaging the public with creative approaches or new directions in project management. The goal of the Cedar Main Street Design Project is to create an illustrated village plan for the area, which includes the lands located on both sides of Cedar Road between MacMillan and Hemer roads. Ideas generated by participants centre on encouraging development
and enjoy walks around the neighbourhood or the outdoors.
◆ OPEN HOUSE and presentation on the Cedar Main Street Design Project planned for Tuesday (June 19) at Cedar Community School starting at 4 p.m.
that is compatible with the area’s natural, rural setting, and on maintaining the village quality of the Cedar Main Street area. Residents envision design elements such as pocket parks, bus shelters, mixed-use buildings and a variety of housing types including clustered single family and small scale multifamily dwellings. Community members can learn more about the project at an open house and presentation at Cedar Community School on Tuesday (June 19). Participants will be able to discuss the final report of the community design charrette and learn more about the next steps in the process. The open house will run 4-7 p.m. and the presentation is scheduled from 7-9 p.m. For more information, please go to www.cedarmainstreetconcepts.com, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Keller at 250-390-6510.

Latest incident from last summer
◆ From /1 The 2007 public advisory warned Gillespie was considered a high risk to reoffend against females of any age. Crown counsel Jackie Gaudet said Gillespie has had multiple convictions for sexual offences. “He’s a serial sex offender,” she said. “We wouldn’t be pursuing this unless we had a substantial likelihood of getting that designation.” The latest sexual assault and assault charges stem from an incident last August when Gillespie sexually assaulted a young woman in his van in the north Jingle Pot
Road area, and then pursued her when she ran from the van. “He offered her a ride home, she’d missed a bus,” said Gaudet. Gillespie was arrested a number of days after the attack. He is scheduled to appear in court July 16 to fix a date for the Crown to begin an application for an assessment order in support of the dangerous offender designation. If the application is granted, a psychiatrist prepares a report for a hearing where a judge decides whether to designate Gillespie as a dangerous offender. email@example.com

Council scolded by NEDC prior to CEO’s quick exit CUDAHY LETTER on behalf of board criticized council.
BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN
Nanaimo council was scolded in a strongly worded letter sent in early March over its decision to pursue potential funding mechanisms to acquire privately held property in Linley Valley West. The Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation also blasted council for discussing, in public, the idea of forced down-zoning to reduce property value so the city could purchase it for its own benefit. On behalf of the the corporation’s then-interim board of directors, Susan Cudahy, former NEDC chief executive officer, wrote that council’s “process can be viewed as equivalent to insider training under the Canadian Securities Act. The process of intentionally de-valuing an asset for personal gain is generally considered unethical and often immoral.” On Feb. 27, council approved a motion by Coun. Bill Bestwick to pursue funding mechanisms to potentially purchase part of Linley Valley West after a residents’ organization made a plea to council to protect it from development. Two weeks later, after receiving the letter dated March 2, council reversed its decision. At the time, Coun. Diana Johnstone, who is also the chairwoman of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission, noted that Linley Valley was not on the city’s priority list to protect as a
park. She also said council might have acted too hastily in its eagerness to protect the land. Mayor John Ruttan said council was not impressed by the letter, which the News Bulletin acquired through a Freedom of Information request. “It’s fair to say the letter wasn’t all that well-received,” said Ruttan. “It’s my view they were a little aggressive in their position that the city should not proceed with it. We had some discussions about it and I think, at the time, Susan may have been aware that it was a little more assertive than they would have liked.” Shortly after, Cudahy was being harshly criticized by council and the public for paying a Toronto firm $8,800 to develop the NEDC’s new website, even though a local company had also been engaged to do some work on the project. On one occasion, Cudahy was allegedly accosted in a Nanaimo grocery store by a resident and spat on in front of her daughter. She then took personal time and returned to her home in Ontario. On April 13, an NEDC board member and a city official interrupted
It’s fair to say the letter wasn’t all that well-received. It’s my view they were a little aggressive in their position.
a meeting between Cudahy and a photographer to take her office keys and escort her from NEDC property. She never returned to work and in late May, Cudahy was given a $75,000 severance package on top of the roughly $70,000 she had earned in her six months on the job. A.J. Hustins, chairman of NEDC, said he doesn’t think the letter had any bearing on Cudahy’s departure. “I don’t think they’re related at all,” he said. Hustins added that in his view, council had no problem with the letter. “I think council took that letter really well,” he said. “I ended up meeting with most of [council] afterwards ... and it went as well as it possibly could have.” Ruttan said at least one councillor was concerned about the letter and found it overly aggressive. “That councillor did have a meeting with [Cudahy] and my understanding is that the meeting was satisfactory,” said Ruttan. Along with criticizing council’s open discussion on down-zoning land, the letter also said council’s actions would send the wrong message to investors looking to do business in Nanaimo. “The highly serious aspect of these discussions is the indication to developers and investors in Nanaimo that the [Official Community Plan] is not a committed document and can be waived and redirected at the whim of special interest groups,” Cudahy wrote. “And that council will actively partake in researching opportunities to reduce developers’ opportunities to see an investment through to full value.” firstname.lastname@example.org

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN
Parents groups, school communities forced to fundraise for safe playground equipment THE NEWS BULLETIN
winging on the monkey bars and rocketing down a slide at recess is an elementary school experience many children take for granted, but buying playground equipment for schools can be a big job for local parents. Historically, school-based parent groups have been responsible for buying and installing playground equipment; once in place, the district takes over ownership and responsibility for maintaining the equipment. Pete Sabo, the district’s director of planning and operations, remembers building provincially funded schools in the 90s, but relying on parents to provide the playground to go with the new building, as no dollars were allotted for this in project agreements. Last fall was the first time he can remember the province announcing money for playgrounds – $8 million to be handed out to districts to ensure all children have a safe
place to play. Nanaimo did not qualify for any funding for the first two rounds of distribution in the program, but ministry officials say a third round of funding will be announced shortly. Sabo said once the money is used up, there’s no guarantee the province will renew this commitment, and he’s not sure how many schools will be helped. While $8 million is a good chunk of change, he said each playground costs tens of thousands of dollars. “They’re very expensive and there’s really not an average because it depends on the size of the playground they want to put in,” said Sabo. “A bigger school will buy more equipment.” He said parents can expect to pay between $30,000 and $80,000 to buy and install a new playground and about $10,000 for just a freestanding slide. There are 10 schools on the district’s high-priority list for playground replacements or major upgrades, Sabo added, and the district hopes the new metal

and plastic playgrounds will have a lifespan of more than 30 years. Many on the high-priority list are wooden structures with a lifespan of about 20 years because the wood rots over time and is susceptible to cracking and splitting. About 10 schools had
upgrades to playgrounds in the last few years. Playgrounds undergo a major inspection every six months and if parts have deteriorated or are found unsafe for other reasons, they are removed. The district can replace broken parts out of its maintenance budget if the manufacturer is still around and it is not too expensive, said Sabo. “At some point, it’s just at the end of its life,” he said. And besides maintaining the playground, the district also helps out by readying the site and once the equipment is installed, using district labour and machinery to do the finishing work such as borders

Julie Addison, in charge of fundraising for the Chase River Elementary School parent group, said the group has been working toward replacing the school’s old wooden playground for at least a couple of years and they figure they will reach their goal of $25,000 a couple more years from now. Chase River is the district’s No. 1 priority for replacement because it’s getting so old, district staff have had to pull parts off. “They’ve been pulling boards off it piece by piece, whatever breaks,” she said. “It’s getting to be pretty slim pickings. I heard it was big before.” Some dollars raised go toward other initiatives or items at the school, Addison added. Seaview Elementary School parents have also picked out a new playground for the school that will cost about $50,000 – the school is the district’s third highest priority because it also has an old wooden structure that is slowly deteriorating – and are working toward that goal. ◆ Levy said the equipment parents want to install at Bayview is designed to increase fine motor skills and the equipment helps children become more receptive to learning. “When children are given outdoor free play time, that’s when their brains start to connect in different ways that help enhance learning,” she said. email@example.com

and pea gravel, said Sabo. ◆ But getting to the installation phase can be a long haul. Parents at Bayview Elementary School have been fundraising for years just to add some pieces to an existing playground and replace the parts that were removed due to vandalism. Sheri Levy, president of the Bayview parent group, said parents have raised a little more than $9,000 and they estimate they need about $12,000. “Playground equipment is very costly, as we’re discovering,” she said. “I started fundraising for the playground equipment about five years ago. To replace the whole adventure playground would cost about $50,000. My daughter is in Grade 6. I’d really like to get it accomplished before I leave.” About half of the funds raised by the Bayview parents go toward the playground fund, said Levy. The remaining dollars are spent at the school, buying books for the library, giving students more field trip opportunities and helping families with shoes, eyeglasses and other items to help students come to school prepared to learn. “We have a high density of families living in poverty,” said Levy. The Bayview group is having its last fundraiser of the year tonight (June 16) – a beer and burger and silent auction at the Harewood Arms from 6-9 p.m.

Playgrounds key to learning New schools are always cause for celebration and fanfare, but often overlooked is a fact that they are incomplete – they don’t come with playground equipment. Provincial funding covers the bricks and mortar of school buildings, but not the ancillary but equally vital pieces outside that give young children places to play and stay active. The challenge is the same for existing schools with outdated playground equipment. RAISING Given the broad and CASH for accepted equipment increasingly understanding that physical shouldn’t fall activity – including playful, on shoulders unstructured activity – is crucial to the development of parents. of healthy young minds and optimal learning conditions, it seems an odd oversight to leave money for play structures out of the equation. Granted, the province took steps last fall to remedy the omission, when it announced $8 million toward ensuring schools have safe, adequate playgrounds. But that commitment is likely inadequate. So far, through two rounds of funding announcements, no Nanaimo schools have made the cut. Yet there is no question we have parent groups and school communities desperately striving for dollars to replace, augment or in some cases simply install play structures. Other schools in communities across B.C. are in the same boat. Active children are more likely to be healthy children, both physically, mentally and emotionally. Active children are more prepared and able to learn in a classroom environment. Those facts are accepted and understood, so why, if healthy activity and play is a vital part of the education system, is that system leaving it to parents to ensure that part of the equation is addressed?

Worst-career list requires a revision BY ROGER KNOX You might have recently seen on Facebook, or elsewhere on the Internet, where a U.S.-based job search company called CareerCast.com posted a column about the top-10 worst jobs of 2012, lumberjack being the worst of the worst. For the first time, newspaper reporter and broadcaster made the list. “As the digital world continues to take over and provide ondemand information, the need for print newspapers and daily newscasts is diminishing,” states the column. “To be sure, both jobs once seemed glamorous, but on-the-job stress, declining job opportunities and income levels are what landed them on our Worst Jobs list.” Really, that’s no surprise to those who are newspaper reporters or broadcasters, especially in small towns. I’m lucky to have done both jobs in my 25-plus years as a journalist, all in small-town B.C. I love being a journalist. It’s what I wanted to be when I grew up (the jury’s still out on whether I’ve matured or not). I love telling peoples’ stories. The first interview I ever did was as a radio student at BCIT. There was this guy at the gym playing wheelchair basketball for his Lower Mainland team at the provincial championships, having just returned from Boston where he won the wheel-
chair division of the Boston Marathon. It was Rick Hansen, long before he conceived his Man In Motion world tour. Being a reporter, you get perks like passes to concerts or sporting events to offset the low wage. In Williams Lake, I got to interview Maurice (The Rocket) Richard when he refereed an old-timers hockey game, a career highlight for me, and had my picture taken with him. In Vanderhoof, once home to a classic rock music festival, I was taking a picture of the guy who played drums for The Georgia Satellites, warming up backstage for his gig by twirling his drumsticks. We ended up chatting. Turns out drumming for the Satellites was just a part-time gig. He owned a garage in Savannah, Ga., and worked as a mechanic. In Fort St. James, one of the first pictures I took was of a B.C. Rail engineer taking his young daughter to work with him in the locomotive. I mentioned to him my lifelong love of trains and the next thing I know, he’s letting me drive the engine. How cool is that? Also in the Fort, I did a story on a bunch of live turkeys who went missing from the back of a pick-up truck, and covered a lowspeed golf cart chase in Salmon Arm after a guy stole a cart from a golf course and tried to outrun police in the cart. You can’t make that stuff up as a reporter.
I got to spend a day pretending to be an RCMP officer in training at the actual B.C. facility in Chilliwack. I was put in a scenario where an angry driver approached me with a baseball bat. He didn’t listen to my commands to stop and I ended up shooting him. Fascinating, sweat-inducing, nerve-wracking fun. I just about didn’t write one of my all-time favourite stories. My editor in Salmon Arm, a curler and curling fan, told me that a Salmon Arm pastor finished second at something called The Friar’s Brier and go talk to him about it. “The Friar’s Brier?” I protested, thinking this is going to be one of the lamest assignments ever. Well, turns out the man made it to the final with his three sons and lost. He was hilarious, with fabulous quotes. When I asked him which team had God on its side in the final, he laughed and said, “Well I think God was on both sides but they had a third that shot the lights out.” Low pay and high blood pressure aside, the best thing about my work is the variety. Some of us newspaper reporters and broadcasters think we have the best job. ◆ Roger Knox is a reporter for the Vernon Morning Star, a Black Press newspaper.

Oil companies gouge customers
General public can share some blame for lack of information
To the Editor, Am I the only one who is disgusted with the big oil companies’ concerted price gouging and our greedy government that lets them get away with it because the higher the gas price the more taxes they collect? On May 31, the price of a barrel of oil dropped to $86.84 which is more than $21 less than the price of a barrel of oil when a litre of fuel at gas stations was $1.399. Also, all the gas stations jacked their prices to $1.449 per litre. I guess they think that since we are Canadians, we will just shrug our shoulders and let them go on robbing us blind. Funny thing is, we will. Ken Hall Nanaimo
To the Editor, Re: Public process sorely lacking, Opinion, June 9. While I would not disagree that the city of Nanaimo elected and nonelected officials seem to only prefer public input if it supports their choice of actions, the lack of public input is not entirely the fault of city officials and how they do business. For example, last summer there was a reverse referendum proposition which allowed the city to borrow $22.5 million for the water treatment plant. The public hearing was advertised in both local papers and on the city website. I attended the meeting from open to close and can honestly say, there were more people on the lawn bowling green than attended the hearing. More recently we engaged in a $120,000 strategic plan which again was heavily advertised and over the course of five or six public meetings barely 300 people took part in total. That means that a strategic plan to guide the city through to 2025 is being crafted based on less than one per cent of the population participating in the process. The last civic election saw less than 30 per cent of the eligible voters turnout. So while indeed, the city can be fairly criticized for what appears to be manipulation of the system to arrive at a predetermined outcome, the general public needs to become far more engaged in the whole process. Why do city council and city staff seem to ignore public opinion? Because the public has taught them they can. Jim Taylor Nanaimo
Terminal cleanup not role of DNBIA To the Editor, Re: Toxic cleanup, May 22.

With no plan to reduce class sizes, Nanaimo trustees decided instead to spend an additional $272,000 on district-level management. In Cowichan, the needs of students are the top priority.

Association to spend our money on. This is a huge undertaking which will costs millions, if not tens of millions of dollars to remedy. It is well outside what BIAs are designed and staffed for. They are around to improve public spaces so more people will flock to a downtown core. After that it’s up to the individual business to get shoppers in their doors. BIAs are not intended for public monies to be spent on helping private landowners develop or sell their properties. B.M. Vries Nanaimo

Cowichan makes students a priority To the Editor, Re: Trustees play for martyrdom, Opinion, June 12. The Cowichan school board is doing what they were elected to do: they are advancing the cause of public education. Cowichan trustees have rejected another round of cuts and submitted a needs budget to the provincial government. Despite a decade of cuts amounting to $16 million, the NanaimoLadysmith school board has decided against restoring programs and services.
City development must be retooled To the Editor, Putting large green spaces in the midst of the city does not serve as some sort of wildlife reserve or promote the safety of larger mammals. The saving of Linley Valley is nothing less than anti-development and is Mickey Mouse. We should be looking at the whole First to Fourth Lakes watershed as a game reserve to protect the future. We should draw the lines in the maps according to human development and exclude game reserving within our existence. To think that we can live with nature and invite cougars and bears to our backyards is noth-
ing less than a death sentence. We see on the television how lions, elephants and rhinos are all near extinct, but we don’t realize that the cougar population is only 350 on the Island, yet we blast them to smithereens at the very sight of them. Linley Valley should be a Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole golf course. The four lakes should be a land reserve. There should be an automobile race track near Nanaimo. The rail yard should be purchased by us and the First Nations and build a world class arena. The E&N should be rebuilt and not just Bandaided. The port should be redesignated as an international duty-free zone. The poor and unemployed should be hired to remove the invasive species in the area. The First Nations should be employed to carve new totems for the city. And the bathtub race should have a $50,000 first prize. Anything less is just Mickey Mouse.

Dog feces can’t compare to litter woes To the Editor, Re: Dog problem requires more enforcement, Letters, June 7. Tom McCartney’s serious control issues, disguised as ‘dog-poo fixation’, would be well-served if positively harnessed. I suggest he satisfy his litter phobia by cruising the back roads and spending time picking up real litter. For this job, he will require a huge truck, a couple of hefty helpers
and a lifetime commitment to rid our pristine areas of hundreds of old batteries, tires, mattresses and anything else careless people illegally and immorally choose to discard. McCartney could also enlist friends as patrol officers to patrol vulnerable areas in an attempt to mitigate this enormous, ongoing and environmentally damaging litter problem. If he has any spare time, I suggest getting a dog to learn
about compassion and how to get a life. And, he should avoid trivial letter-writing until such time as he can report on the real litter in the world. Shirley Lee Nanaimo What do you think?

What should I think about when considering a Bathroom Reno?
■ Nananimo Denturist Branch Mgr.
plumbing & heating
You know the old saying… “Fail to Plan and KEVIN CLARK Plan to…” yah, yah… you know! The most important part of a plumbing renovation is to plan it out - with careful consideration of your determined budget. Figure out what you would like to change, what you can afford and then get some really good advice from a qualiﬁed contractor. They should be able to tell you what you should expect in terms of time lines to complete your bathroom. They should also be able to speak to the coordination of other trades that will be required to complete the renovation such as drywall, ﬂooring and lighting. When considering a plumbing contractor… some important questions: How long have they been in business? Are they Red Seal Certiﬁed? Do they have references? Do they have a Better Business Bureau Rating? Are they insured? Do they adhere to WCB Standards? Do they warranty their work? Plan it out, do your homework, k, have it done right.

The instinctive, natural way to express anger is to respond aggressively. Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to ANGELA SLADE ﬁght and to defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger, therefore, is necessary to our survival. People use a variety of both conscious and unconscious ways to control anger. The three main approaches are expressing, suppressing, and calming. Expressing your angry feelings in an assertive—not aggressive—manner is the healthiest way to express anger. To do this, you have to learn how to make clear what your needs are, and how to get them met, without hurting others. Anger can be suppressed. This happens when you hold in your anger, stop thinking about it, and focus on something positive. The aim is to inhibit or suppress your anger and convert it into more constructive behavior. The danger in this type of response is that if it isn’t allowed outward expression, your anger can turn inward—on yourself. Anger turned inward may cause hypertension, high blood pressure, or depression. Finally, you can calm down inside. This means not just controlling your outward behavior, but also controlling your internal responses, taking steps to lower your heart rate, calm yourself down, and let the feelings subside.

heard often by chiropractors regarding their patients’ headaches, stiff necks or back pain. Many people have been led to believe that DR. KARIN MATTERN living with pain is necessary when it often can be relieved fairly quickly and easily - not temporarily with pain medication - but by addressing the cause and correcting it. In a study at the university of Saskatoon, 171 people totally disabled by back pain an average of 8 years were treated by a chiropractor. The results: 87 % returned to full function and none were made worse. This included patients who had already undergone spinal surgery. The next time you suffer from a headache or back pain and are tempted to say to yourself, “I can live with it” ask yourself - do you really want to? Then consult a chiropractor to determine whether you might be able to be free of that pain for good.

“I can live with it” is a comment
The ﬁrst time is always the hardest. You are a pro now. You have learned the basics about eating, speaking and wearing a denture. There will be some adjustment, but it will probably be shorter and easier than the ﬁrst time. If you have been wearing the same dental prosthesis for more than 5 years without having it checked, you are running unnecessary risks. Too many people believe that dentures are good for 20 years. Nothing could be further from the truth! Prolonged use of ill-ﬁtting dentures can irritate the gums, tongue and cheek, and even cause the ridges of your mouth to shrink or develop loose pliable tissue to the point where it will be almost impossible to ﬁt you with normal dentures. Your ability to chew may decrease and your face may acquire deep aging lines and wrinkles. When you look at the big picture, the temporary adjustment period is not so bad. For any questions regarding your denture needs, contact Carson Denture Clinic to book a free consultation.

I know I should have my denture replaced, but I do not want to go through a long adjustment period again.

All I can say to answer this question is that like anything else you purchase, there is maintenance. It is important to clean, wipe and not abuse your furniture. It is always your responsibility to take care of your investment. Outside of this, taking advantage of protection plans that are offered by your sales associate is a small investment to give you piece of mind to ensure any accidents that may happen will be taken care of for you. If we do not ask you about it, please inquire. Just remember that here at Dodd’s Furniture, “WE WONT BE UNDER SOLD!”

Gluten is a protein-based molecule found in certain grains, namely: wheat, spelt, barley, rye, kamut, and DR. TONIA WINCHESTER tricale. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but are often grown or processed with wheat and can become contaminated (certiﬁed gluten-free oats are available at health food stores). Gluten adds elasticity to baking, and allows the dough to rise by trapping carbon dioxide produced by yeast. Patients and doctors are recognizing gluten’s contribution to speciﬁc disease states. The most severe condition involving gluten is called Celiac Disease where in the immune system attacks the small intestine, preventing food from being absorbed, resulting in wide-spread nutrient deﬁciencies and often diarrhea. A strict gluten free diet is the most important way to restore intestinal and whole body health, but it is important to discuss with a health care practitioner to make sure you have a proper diagnosis. Patients without Celiac Disease can still have an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. It can be linked to low energy, poor concentration, digestive concerns like gas, bloating, or constipation, depression, anxiety, skin conditions, autoimmune disorders, bedwetting and hyperactivity in children. Various testing methods are available at Arbour Wellness Centre to determine if gluten is a factor in your health conditions. Most extended health plans will cover naturopathic visits.

Common sense tells us that we want the lowest rate KRISTA HENLEY & possible for as long as possible and you can do that SHARON FAUCHON easier than ever now during the “The Great Canadian Mortgage Sale. Five years ago the BEST 5 year ﬁxed rate was 5.89% with the 7 year and 10 year term ﬁxed rates even higher, which were not appealing to most. Today the BEST 5 year ﬁxed rate is 3.06%, a signiﬁcant decrease from 5.89% and for most lower than they had ever hoped! Of course we all want to hold onto this low rate for as long as possible and with the longer 10 year term ﬁxed rate at only 3.89%, we can! You will be building wealth and paying down your mortgage faster than ever. During the 10 year term at 3.89% it’s no telling what rates may do ... you could watch as they rise over double that or worse? If you cannot afford to pay double your current mortgage payment then you need to come up with an alternative for having to renew in ﬁve years as this could be a very real possibility. This 10 year rate is our special from a primary lender and is available for new purchases, reﬁnances and renewals. Call us at 250-758-1200 to see how this could work for you today!

Yes, this is a common problem, especially with south- and west-facing windows and skylights. We have two products that make a signiﬁcant difference, yet unlike drapes or regular blinds you can still clearly see out! And these products greatly lower heating costs in the winter.

Make Your Home “Anonymous”. If there is a new home ‘Show Home’ near your home, go visit it. TIM WAIT It doesn’t matter what size the homes are. What you will ﬁnd are some wonderfully (but sparsely) furnished homes that anyone could live in -- with the emphasis on “anyone.” They are anonymous. There may be a baseball glove in the boy’s room, but no family photos on the walls. There may be “personality” - but no person. The reason you want to make your home “anonymous” is because you want buyers to view it as their potential home. When a potential homebuyer sees your family photos hanging on the wall, it puts your own brand on the home and momentarily shatters their illusions about living in the house themselves. Put away family photos, sports trophies, collectible items, knick-knacks, and souvenirs. Put them in a box. Rent a storage area for a few months and put the box in the storage unit. Do not just put the box in the attic, basement, garage or a closet. Part of preparing a house for sale is to remove “clutter,” and that is the next step in preparing your house for sale. I offer a no charge consultation service that is designed to prepare your home to sell in less time for more money. As Nanaimo’s Full Service Realtor I welcome your call to 713-1223 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Does ﬁling for bankruptcy in B.C. affect my spouse?
Your ﬁling for bankruptcy would only GARETH SLOCOMBE, CA, CIRP affect your spouse if he/she has co-signed any of your loans or is a joint borrower with you. If so, your spouse will have full responsibility for that debt. The exception to this would be in cases where a spousal guarantee was only given for a speciﬁc limited amount. If you jointly own assets with your spouse which exceed the allowable exemption amounts, these assets may be required to be sold by the Trustee in order for the Trustee to obtain the proceeds from your one half interest. Your bankruptcy does not have any impact on your spouse’s credit rating. Your ﬁling for bankruptcy in B.C. rather than any other province does not make any difference other than with respect to the types and dollar amounts of some exempt assets.

What’s the deal with all the poor foam out there? 3 years ago I bought a new couch, paid for the foam upgrade JOHN ROGERS and it’s already shot. No warranty. 2 years ago I bought a new mattress with a pillow top, its shot too. This is a huge problem in the furniture and mattress industry. The biggest problem is offshore foams. We can import almost anything in the way of foam, with few restrictions. North American manufacturers however have to pour to an extremely high safe standard, importers do not. To say “made in Canada” means that 51% of the labor and or material is done in Canada. Make sure your purchase is truly made in Canada with Canadian products.

As with other health issues, it is important to identify hearing loss early. Hearing loss tends to occur gradually and many people don’t realize a problem is developing. It is often apparent to others sooner. Early diagnosis of hearing loss means more effective treatment, reduced risk of auditory deprivation and better communication ability. A hearing test is painless and quick. It should be an annual part of ongoing health care such as dental check ups and other routine evaluations. Make an appointment for a free hearing screening today.

My immediate instinct is to say “yes” because at this time of year it is easier to deal with a tax adjustment based on them having been paid rather than the Buyer’s notary public or lawyer having to try to get the taxes paid in time when a transaction completes on the due date for property taxes. However, the answer often has to take into account any other related transactions. For instance, are you also buying a property where the Sellers may not be in a position to claim the Home Owner Grant? Have the Buyers of your property anticipated claiming the Grant on your property and left the HOG on their existing property for the buyer of that property to claim? I would recommend that anyone buying or selling at tax time contact your notary public or lawyer to ﬁnd out exactly what they recommend you do with respect to your speciﬁc transaction. PS. For anyone not buying or selling right now, don’t forget to pay your property taxes and claim your Home Owner Grant on or before July 3rd!
Why would I need a hearing g test if I don’t notice a hearing loss?

Gabriola health foundation earns Islands Trust award The Gabriola Island Health Care Foundation, society and auxiliary earned an Islands Trust Community Stewardship Award for building the Gabriola Island Urgent Care Medical Clinic. The foundation was one of three award winners in the group category selected earlier this month by the Islands Trust Council during the quarterly meeting on North Pender Island. “This year we had a record number of nominations with 14 individuals and four groups nominated for the awards,” said Sheila Malcolmson, chairwoman of the Islands Trust Council. “The diverse nature of the work of the nominees and the quality of the projects in which they have been involved is incredible.” The $1.3 million medical clinic opened June 11.

Fun family event m
At-home entertaining can be fun and easy when you pick a theme everyone will love. Movies transcend many generations, and can prove the ideal backdrop for a special night under the stars with friends and family. Host a movie night in the backyard. All that’s needed is some equipment (which may be rented or borrowed from someone with access to AV equipment), a movie of choice and some tasty refreshments. A movie can be streamed from a laptop computer with the help of a projector and displayed on a garage wall or even a sheet serving as a screen. Encourage guests to bring their own lawn chairs or set up blankets right on the grass. Popcorn and movies
are the perfect pairing. Rent a popcorn machine that can be plugged in right in the backyard, so guests can serve themselves piping-hot popcorn. Or pop plenty of microwave popcorn indoors and package it in paper bags that guests can hold individually. Keep cans or bottles of soft drinks in a cooler filled with ice. Schedule an intermission during the movie so that filmgo-
ers can get up and help themselves to a drink or visit the restroom. Other snacks to have on hand include typical movie theater fare: * nachos and cheese * boxed candies, such as “Snow Caps” or “Ike & Mike” brands * licorice * cotton candy, etc. For those looking to offer a more extensive refreshment spread, finger sandwiches or chicken nuggets and dipping sauces are foods to enjoy. Make sure the movie is rated for all in the viewing audience and in case neighbors with young children are also able to get a peek of the display. External speakers hooked up to the computer can help amplify the sound.

Campside treat gets revamped Sâ€™mores is one of the most popular desserts enjoyed around the campfire and at cookouts. Now you can enjoy the flavor of this delectable dessert without the fuss of toasting marshmallows over an open flame. Sâ€™mores were popular campside treats
because of the portability of ingredients. It was easy to pack a bag of marshmallows, a box of graham crackers and a few bars of chocolate. The combination of sticky marshmallow, smooth, rich chocolate and crunchy graham crackers
provides a perfect melding of flavors. To make a delicious dessert that builds upon the sâ€™mores flavors and theme at your next summertime event, try this recipe for Frozen Sâ€™mores Cake. Frozen Sâ€™mores Cake 1 quart vanilla ice cream

Place the cake in the freezer overnight to harden. When ready to serve, place the garnish marshmallows on top and drizzle with a little melted hot fudge. You can use a kitchen torch or a barbecue lighter to add a little browning to the garnish marshmallows to make them look like they were toasted over a fire. Slice and enjoy quickly before it melts. This cake also makes a great alternative to a storebought ice cream birthday cake.

Fun things for kids to do during Summer’s dog days Adults may find they don’t have enough time to do all the things they wish they could. Commitments to work, family and friends often leave individuals with little time for anything, including themselves. Kids, however, tend to have all the time in the world, especially during summer vacation. Many a parent has heard their child or children say, “I’m bored” during a summer hiatus from school. Even today, when kids have access to the Internet, Facebook, video games, and the host of other distractions at their constant disposal, kids seemingly complain of boredom. The following ideas can help parents keep kids occupied in constructive ways.
* Teach kids to cook. Summer can be a great time for parents to teach kids lessons they won’t learn in school. And few lessons are more practical and potentially more enjoyable than teaching kids to cook. Cooking can help keep kids’ minds sharp, as recipes entail math and reading comprehension. Get kids started in the kitchen by giving them some simple tasks around dinnertime, like preparing the salads or helping peel the potatoes. If kids enjoy their time in the kitchen, involve them more when prepping the main course, making sure they read the recipe and help measure the ingredients. * Encourage a child’s inner artist. Nearly every child has some artistic
inclination, be it painting, singing, dancing, writing, etc. Encourage the household Picasso to paint summer landscapes, which will get them off the couch and outdoors while cultivating a talent. For the household thespian or singer, visit the local playhouse and see if there are any roles for kids in the summer play. Whatever a child’s artistic inclination, the freedom of summer vacation is the perfect opportunity for kids to embrace theirs. * Play board games, not “bored” games. Kids can only play so many games of Candy LandTM before they grow out of it or get bored. However, parents can ensure their kids spend summer learning and simultaneously
having fun by playing games like chess or even ScrabbleTM. Chess employs mathematical and analytical skills while Scrabble can greatly improve a child’s vocabulary. What’s more, no two games of chess or Scrabble are ever alike, so kids aren’t likely to get bored with them
like they are other games. Kids with a competitive spirit can find the games very challenging and enjoy the progress they make each time they play. * Encourage kids to create. Summer is a carefree time for kids and marks the perfect opportunity for them to flex their
creative muscles. Encourage kids to build kites, or work with them building a bird house or, for especially ambitious parents, a tree house. Kids often love the process of creating something, and it can be a great bonding experience for parents and kids alike.

You couldnâ€™t wait til tomorrow for a brand new day? Now youâ€™re older and the weight is on your shoulder. Make the world a little colder. No more hidinâ€™ in the old day. Be strong, Donâ€™t you give up hope. It will get hard, Lifeâ€™s like a jump rope. Thereâ€™ll be a bump and there will be a bruise. Thereâ€™ll be alarms and there will be a snooze. Thereâ€™ll be a path that you will have to choose. Thereâ€™ll be a win and there will be a lose, and You gotta hold your head up high, and Watch all the negative go by. Donâ€™t ever be ashamed to cry. You go ahead, â€˜Cause lifeâ€™s like a jump rope. I want to tell you that everything will be okay. That everything will eventually turn itself to gold. So keep pushing through it all. Donâ€™t follow, lead the way. Donâ€™t lose yourself or your hope. â€˜Cause lifeâ€™s like a jump rope. Up, down, up, down... remember... Lifeâ€™s like a jump rope.
We love and miss you, Your Family

T-men like challenge of facing New West
Pirates will play for first The premier league’s heavy hitters will go swing for swing with one another this weekend. The Nanaimo Hub City Paving Pirates (21-5) and the Okanagan Athletics (23-5) play a series today (June 16) and tomorrow in Kelowna that will determine first place in the B.C. Premier Baseball League. “You always like to play the best teams, battle it out for the top spot,” said Colby Morgan, Pirates pitcher. “ We a lw ay s h av e good series against Okanagan.” The Pirates will have to find the right balance this weekend, because they try to bring the same approach against every opponent, but then again, they like to get pumped up for the big games. “It’s really exciting playing the better teams – we can challenge ourselves,” Morgan said. The Pirates faced a pretty good team last weekend, hosting the Abbotsford Cardinals on Sunday at Serauxmen Stadium, and won one of two games but didn’t generate much offence. Hub City Pirates man-

Nanaimo Pirates pitcher Bryan Odgers delivers to home plate during a game against the Coquitlam Reds last weekend at Serauxmen Stadium.
ager Doug Rogers said the team would work on its plate approaches this week at practice. “It’s not just a matter of going up there and swinging the bat,” he said. “What do we need
at that particular time in the game?” GAME ON … The Pirates play on the road the rest of this month. The only game on the mid-Island will be June 27, when the team vis-
its the Parksville Royals at 6 p.m. at Springwood Park. Next home action for the Pirates at Serauxmen Stadium isn’t until July 4 against the Royals. email@example.com
There’s been a renewed big-game feel at Frank Crane Arena so far this lacrosse season. The atmosphere could be extra special this Sunday (June 17). That’s because the New Westminster Salmonbellies (3-3) will be coming to Nanaimo that night to take on the Coastal Windows Timbermen (2-3-1) in Western Lacrosse Association action. The Salmonbellies’ history of success is known across the country, said Timber men defender Dustin Dunn, who came to B.C. from Ontario this season. He and his teammates faced the ’Bellies once already this season at New West’s Queen’s Park Arena, a game the home team won 17-7. “For me coming across, I was really looking forward to the first game at New West and when we came out like that it kind of bothered me quite a bit,” Dunn said. “So I’m looking for a little revenge on them here and showing them what the Timbermen are all about.” The T-men like to think they can compete with any team in the WLA and they have usually played
the Salmonbellies tough in recent seasons. “We’ve always had good games against them in the past but when we went over to Queen’s Park the last time we left our legs on the bus,” said Art Webster, Timbermen coach. “We can’t do that at home.” The Salmonbellies victimized the T-men in transition, especially, in the blowout in New West. Dunn said Nanaimo needs to be better at reacting to shots and smarter with line changes. But m o s t l y, the Timbermen were talking about the necessity of getting a good start in Sunday’s game. “It comes down to everybody being individually focused and doing what they’ve got to do to get ready,” said Joel Henry, T-men attacker. “We’ve got to capitalize on our chances that we get from them and play with the lead from the get-go.” Dunn said getting a good start takes mental preparation. “Just coming out, getting every loose ball right off the hop, getting the first shot, getting the first everything,” he said. “Just simple stuff.” GAME ON … The Timbermen and Salmonbellies face off Sunday at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena … Nanaimo will have forward Kaleb Toth back in the lineup. They are 2-0 when Toth plays. firstname.lastname@example.org

SENIOR B lacrosse team defeats Royal City 12-11. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN
The Nanaimo DBL Timbermen made things exciting for the fans, tying the game late and then winning it in overtime. The cityâ€™s senior B lacrosse team defeated the Royal City Capitals 12-11 on Thursday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Things looked dicey late as the Caps strung together enough goals in the third period to pull ahead 11-10 with less than two minutes to go. At that point, an abbreviated shot clock ran out on the Capitals and the Timbermen took possession and promptly tied things up
on a goal from Ryan Clark. The teams traded chances in overtime before Ben Stebbins found some room and won it for the home team. â€œWe regrouped just in time,â€? said Mike Maughan, Timbermen coach. â€œThe guys are proving to be pretty resilient.â€? Jon Diplock led the Timbermen with three goals and three assists and Clark also tallied a hat trick. Stebbins finished with two goals and Brent Holness, Ryan Forslund and Graeme Ross were the other scorers. Gabe Sutherland had three assists and goalie Pat Mallough picked up the win in the crease. GAME ON â€Ś The Timbermen and Capitals play a rematch Sunday (June 17) in New Westminster. Next home action for the T-men is June 23 versus Port Moody. email@example.com

Elementary school athletes have a knack for volleyball
Continuing a review of local volleyball results from the past seasonâ€Ś Last week in this space we recognized top teams from bantam (born 1998-99) girlsâ€™ volleyball teams that had done well in elementary school playoffs. So now we check out results from bantam boysâ€™ playoffs. Darren Brick was the league coordinator for larger schools with a population of more than 275 students, for some sixteen teams in total. He reports that post-season playoffs culminated with a tournament held at North Cedar Intermediate. There, the matches were extremely close and competitive, with the eventual result being a district title for the squad from Randerson Ridge. On the winning team were players Ian Tuck, Nathan Castle, Sean Casey, Nathan Ziemanski, Nick Schley, Justin Bishop, Adam
