Team Blair tackles Kusam Klimb Blair’sTeam did the annual Kusam Klimb on Saturday, completing the 23 km backcountry endurance event up Mount H’Kusam in Sayward.

The Rehabilitation Department staff of Campbell River Hospital joined together as Team Blair to raise $5,000 for ALS.

Society of BC (ALSBC) to support Camp Alohi Lani, a camp for children with a parent with ALS. ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a progressive, terminal

The husband of one of the department staff, Blair, has ALS and his wife has recently gone off work to take care of him. Funds will go to the ALS

neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed. Every day, two to three Canadians die of the disease. Help Team

Blair by donating through the ALSBC website under Events/Team Blair or at the Rehab Department, Campbell River Hospital. Tax receipts will be given.

Can you prevent Alzheimer’s disease?

Fishing 2X14 Corner with Don Daniels email: dond@campbellrivermirror.com A group of anglers from Campbell River and Courtenay camped out for 9 days and had the opportunity to fish Fry Lake north of Campbell River. Trout caught ranged from 14 to 18 inches. The action picked up when Norman Beech and Vickie Atherton were fishing. Vikki was trolling with a black woolly worm fly. The fly made a ripple on the surface of the water and was scooped up by a resident eagle. The line snapped and the eagle was gone. Local lakes have been good for both Cutthroat and Rainbow trout fishing using any combination of spinners and spoons as well as bait when and where permitted. The Elk River levels are medium to high at the moment and are expected to drop in weeks to come. This river is restricted to fly fishing and is tough fishing for the beginner. When the fishing guides from Campbell River head south as they were doing last week, their destinations were Kitty Coleman and Bates Beach. Shelter Point is still producing salmon anywhere from 14 to 24 pounds. Anglers on the West Coast have been battling strong winds and sometimes getting out, the fishing has been tough going. Fifteen year old Jalen Hulit of Coutts, Alberta landed a 31.7 pounder and also took a 27.7 pounder the same day. Halibut fishing at Nootka Sound has been very good; James Tant caught a 59.5 pound halibut. James Tant Canada Day is a family affair for fishing on Discovery Pier in Campbell River. The Huck Finn Small Fry Derby will take place from 9a.m. until noon. Prizes will be awarded for the biggest, smallest, prettiest, ugliest, fattest and oddest catches.

CORNER

Worldwide there are an estimated 33.6 million people living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and related dementia – 500,000 of those being Canadian, and six million new cases diagnosed per year. In a Globe and Mail article dated July 20, 2011 seven health risks were outlined that may contribute to Alzheimer risk. Dr. Barnes, in her research, used mathematical modeling to estimate the global impact of modifiable risk factors with 17.2 million of these current cases being preventable. Here is her research summarized: ● Low education: associated with 19.1 per cent or 6.4 million cases (use it or lose it. The more educated a person the more likely they are to engage in stimulating brain activity). ● Smoking: 13.9

My top four remedies to add to your health maintenance program if you are not on them already include: ● Exercise 2030 minutes per day, preferably weight training according to Dr. Amen. Make sure you protect yourself against head injury in your chosen sport as head injury also increases the risk of AD. ● Curcumin: in a well absorbed formula this nutrient crosses the blood brain barrier and has been shown in some studies to reduce amyloid plaque. ● Vitamin E: the mixed tocopherol form

EFA’s limit beta amyloid production and increase neurotrophic factor that promotes the survival of neuronal cells.

University Women give hand up Renée Andor Black Press COURTENAY — Two Comox Valley-raised female university students will receive a hand-up to finish their studies. Mikaela Jorgensen and Rose Prieto each received $1,000 bursaries from the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) – Comox Valley. Pat James, previous CFUW bursary committee chair, noted students must be graduates of a Comox Valley secondary school and they must be in at least their second, third or fourth year of an undergraduate degree. “This is really to help younger women complete their education and go on and get a proper university degree,” James said at the CFUW bursary lunch last week, adding there’s more bursaries for first-year students available, and CFUW wanted to ensure students further along in their studies have a chance for financial help to finish. She also noted bursaries are needsbased rather than solely academic, and CFUW chooses to give bursaries so the money goes to young women

“My daughter and myself both recently purchased Ironman beds. Penny, who suffers from insomnia, claims that she doesn’t wake up in the night so much, and in general, falls asleep faster and stays asleep. I have Sciatica which causes a lot of hip pain, especially at night. Recently I had to leave my bed and sleep in the spare room bed, which caused a lot of pain. As soon as I got into my Ironman bed, the difference was amazing. I like that the temperature seems to be adjusted and I am no longer too hot or cold. We are both very satisfied, not only with the mattress, but with the delivery and set up. We have recommended the mattress to friends, chiropractors and doctors. - Shirley A., Parksville, BC and Penny A., North Vancouver, BC “When you play 162 games of baseball a year, sleep recovery becomes extremely important. Since I started sleeping on the IRONMAN T3 RECOVERY MATTRESS, my sleeps have been deeper, and my morning aches and pains are completely gone. I was skeptical at first, but after sleeping on the IRONMAN T3 RECOVERY MATTRESS for only a couple of months, I am amazed with the improvement of my sleep, performance, and most importantly my life. I will never sleep on another mattress!” - Taylor Green, Milwaukee Brewers “I am an injured ex-military veteran with 4 compressed vertebrae. Prior to sleeping on our IRONMAN T3 RECOVERY MATTRESS I tossed and turned all night, hardly sleeping at all. Now, I fall asleep within minutes and wake up feeling the most incredible amount of energy! This is a FANTASTIC mattress!” - Jerry Zimmerman, Comox, BC “I have chronic whiplash from a prior car accident. For the two weeks prior to getting the delivery of our IRONMAN T3 RECOVERY MATTRESS, I had to take Advil every night, so I could fall asleep. I have not had to take anything since I have been sleeping on my new mattress. I have NEVER SLEPT SO WELL!” - Jodie Zimmerman, Comox, BC

With fun and sun comes IBC’s water safety tips Summer long holiday weekends and warm days are here and Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) is offering tips to help Canadians to stay safe while enjoying water activities. “Being out in the water can be a lot of fun. But we need to remember that accidents do happen. This is why it’s important to review a few simple water safety tips every year,” says Lindsay Olson, Vice President, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba with IBC. According to Canadian Red Cross, on average, more than 500 people drown every year in Canada. This significant number of waterrelated fatalities reinforces the need for water safety education. Here are some water safety tips that will help you and your family enjoy this summer: ● Be aware of the risks in your region. Some areas may have

More than 500 people drown in Canada every year. Know your water safety tips. significant snow melt resulting in high water flows. B e extra cautious around fast-flowing rivers and streams. ● Supervise children at all times. ● When swimming be aware of your limitations. Don’t go beyond your ability. ● Think before you dive. Ensure water depth is at least 10 feet deep. Remember the depth of lakes or oceans can change due to tides or seasons. ● When in, on and

around water, have everyone try on their lifejacket to see that it still fits and that all the zippers and buckles are in good working order. Lifejackets do save lives. ● When boating, always wear a lifejacket. Even in nice weather, even close to shore. ● Boat sober, “don’t booze and cruise” on the water. ● Familiarize yourself with basic lifesaving skills such as CPR in case of

emergency. ● All water parks and facilities should have a general set of security regulations for you to follow. Please read the rules! ● Keep emergency equipment and first aid kits close at hand. ● Know before you go. Check the weather forecast before you go out on the water.
