London’s calling Going for gold: gold: Cowichan soccer star Emily Zurrer will represent Canada in a secondstraight Olympic Games

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

H

ard work and persistence paid off for valley soccer star Emily Zurrer with the announcement Monday she’s on the 18-member Canadian women’s soccer squad going to London for the Summer Olympics next month. Zurrer, who turns 25 July 12, will be going to her second Olympic Games after also playing on the team four years ago in Beijing. “I’m so excited and honoured to be able to represent my team, my community and my country at a second Olympic Games,’’ stated Zurrer in an email to the News Leader Pictorial from Salt Lake City, where the Canadian team was playing a friendly with the U.S. before heading to Europe July 4.

“This time feels a little different because I had to overcome a few more hurdles and work my butt off more than ever before to get here.’’ The biggest hurdle was being left off the roster by John Herdman, who replaced Carolina Morace as coach following last year’s World Cup disappointment for the team, during the Olympic qualifying tournament in Vancouver. It was painful for Zurrer to watch her teammates secure a berth in the Games without her. “I think that you gain strength through each experience or hardship you face and conquer,’’ noted Zurrer in retrospect. “Right now I feel strong and conÂżdent and ready to take on whatever is thrown at me.’’ Another valley athlete, Michael Braithwaite, is expected to be named part of the Canadian rowing team at the Olympics, any day now. Zurrer received a chance to show

Herdman what she could do at the Cyprus Cup as well as games in Boston, Sweden and Moncton and regular training in Vancouver following the qualifying tournament and leading to the Olympic selections. “I think I had to work a little harder to prove myself to him, especially after missing a big chunk of time at the beginning of his tenure, but we have a good relationship and I trust him fully as a coach,’’ pointed out Zurrer. She had commitments playing in Sweden just after Herdman took over as coach and Zurrer felt that hurt her chance to make inroads with him at Âżrst. Valley soccer fans were thrilled upon hearing the news of Zurrer’s selection. “I think it’s very deserving,’’ said Cowichan LMG Pringle men’s team coach Glen Martin. “She’s got the experience. It was

just a matter of getting through to the new coach. I think she was caught in the middle between the old coach and the new coach.’’ Emily Zurrer: Zurrer worked down to business out with Martin’s men’s team several times during her hiatus from the women’s national side. “She works real hard and she gets better as she goes along,’’ said Martin. During the men’s sessions, it was “just like she’s one of the guys,’’ added Martin. “I think she enjoyed it.’’ Zurrer and her teammates will spend 10 days in Switzerland training during early July before playing a few more friendlies and heading to

London on July 15. The Âżrst game of the tournament is against Japan on July 25. “I think this time we will be completely focused on the task at hand, which is achieving our ultimate goal of getting on the podium,’’ Zurrer indicated. “In Beijing, it was our Âżrst time and there was so many wonderful things to take in. This time we will be getting down to business from the get-go and leaving everything else till after our competition is over.’’ Zurrer is grateful to friends, family and the community for providing her with unwavering support. “I brag to my teammates that I come from the best and most supportive community, the Cowichan Valley, not that I’m biased,’’ she said. “The people here have been wonderful and it means a lot to me.’’

School board jumps on board with Cowichan’s B.C. Summer Games bid Cowichan’s bid for the B.C. Summer Games in 2016 or 2018 has received the much-needed support of School District 79. Trustees voted unanimously Wednesday to endorse the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s Summer Games bid. That support was vital — CVRD Chairman Rob Hutchins admitted that without the school district agreeing to house some 3,725 athletes in schools, and transporting them on school

buses, there would be no point in attempting to host the games. Trustees had delayed offering their support earlier this month, wanting to first discuss it with senior staff. “There will be an impact on the school district because July is when we normally do our summer cleaning in our schools,” SD79 secretary-treasurer Bob Harper wrote in his feedback to trustees.

“We would need to adjust our summer schedule in order to work around the days of the games, plus set up and take down. Our bus fleet sits idle during the summer so the impact of using the buses for transportation would be minimal. “With the condition that the school district not be out-of-pocket any costs,” Harper summed, “we can accommodate use of our facilities for either the 2016 or 2018 B.C. Summer Games.”

A

man was transported to Victoria General Hospital via air ambulance after falling onto rocks in Cowichan Bay Friday

afternoon. “An individual had fallen approximately eight feet onto the rocks down in behind the Maritime Centre,” Cowichan Bay Volunteer Fire Rescue deputy chief Cam Ferguson said. The ¿re¿ghters were called at about 12:40 p.m. to assist in setting up a landing zone for the air ambulance, he added. “There were some concerns about neck and spinal injuries, and concerns about him having some numbness and

tingling,” Ferguson said. “That’s why they launched the aircraft right away, so that he could be immediately transported to Victoria General, which is the Island Trauma Centre.” The Cow Bay crew sent two trucks in different directions to determine the best spot for the helicopter to land. “Our guys determined that Hecate Park was the most suitable location we had available in the immediate area, and quickly shut down access to the parking lot and established a landing zone for the helicopter, and at that point made contact with the in-bound Àight crew,” Ferguson said. “So they were able to come and make a safe landing there, which was very close to the (fall) scene.” There were about 10 Cowichan Bay

¿re¿ghters on scene, plus two paramedic crews on the ground and the air ambulance squad. The patient’s medical status was unclear at press time. “He was conscious and alert, but complaining of some paralysis-type symptoms, but it’s early to tell if it’s something that’ll be permanent. That’s why they took the precautions they did.” And, Ferguson added, it’s another example of how useful a resource the air ambulance is. “Should somebody get injured, the air ambulance is just 18 minutes out of Vancouver airport, so it’s a pretty quick service to have available, and really decreases the transport times,” he said. “It’s just good to know in those circumstances there’s nothing being held back at all.”

Arson verdict will wait until accused Änishes treatment Krista Siekken

A

decision has been made in the case of Darryl Nanos, the man accused of setting ¿re to an occupied fourplex in Lake Cowichan in 2010. However, it will be a couple of months until that decision is announced because Nanos did not appear at his scheduled court appearance

Tuesday in Duncan Provincial Court. Nanos’ lawyer, Scott Sheets, told Judge Josiah Wood that Nanos had checked himself into a residential treatment program in Port Coquitlam, and would be remaining there until Aug. 17. Wood said he was ready to announce his decision, but was concerned about whether it was appropriate to do so in Nanos’ absence. “I’d prefer him to be here,” Wood told the court before determining a

new decision date would be scheduled on July 24. Nanos is charged with one count of arson to an inhabited property, a crime that comes with a maximum penalty of a lifetime behind bars. The charge stems from an Oct. 8, 2010 ¿re at 86 Stanley Road Lake, where Nanos was renting one of the home’s four units. Although other units were occupied at the time of the ¿re, no one was injured in the blaze.

Carr monument location gets thumbs down from Chemainus advisory group Location, location: Penelakut concerns catch attention, council has yet to rule Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

A

controversial 50-foot Emily Carr monument proposed for Chemainus’ Waterwheel Park earned a thumbs down from the Chemainus Advisory Committee Thursday. North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure said the committee’s recommendation to reject the $300,000 sculpture at Waterwheel headed to council for debate Tuesday.

That’s also when council was expected to mull monument organizer Karl Schutz’s request for $75,000 in public funds for the art piece complementing Mural Town’s Carr art theme. “This is just a recommendation to council, and council hasn’t given permission for the Waterwheel site yet,” Lefebure said. Folks opposing the monument to iconic island painter Carr included ¿ve Penelakut band members. “The majority of public opinion was opposed to the location of the monument in Waterwheel Park,” Lefebure said of the meeting in council chambers. He added Penelakut opinions that Aboriginal input into the monument has dwindled since the project sur-

faced last year would give w council cause for concern. The mayor declined to pprejudge what council w will decide, w Karl Schutz: but noted the b clear message “standard” for involving First Nations folks on local projects was set when dive master Peter Luckham’s team sunk a 737 jet off Chemainus for recreational dives about ¿ve years ago. “Karl got a clear message on how the project will have to be worked on involving First Nations,” the mayor said.

CVRD sets public meeting for controversial soil application

T

he Cowichan Valley Regional District will host a public meeting about South Island Aggregate’s controversial contaminated-soil proposal on July 12. “The board has clearly heard from the community that more opportunities for engagement in the permit application process are necessary,” CVRD Chairman Rob Hutchins in a media release Monday.

“In general, people feel that they have not been heard and their questions and concerns have not been adequately addressed.” The CVRD does not have jurisdiction over SIA’s application, which instead is reviewed by B.C.’s environmental ministry. The regional district has, however, invited the environment and mines ministries, and SIA, to participate in the forum. “The CVRD will be recording the

entire meeting and will collect materials ¿led by the public at the meeting,” the press release adds. “Comment forms will also be available for those who would rather express themselves in writing rather than speaking to the meeting. The CVRD will turn over all of this information to the Ministry of Environment.” The meeting happens Thursday, July 12 from 6:30 until 10 p.m. — Krista Siefken

Vote may mark the beginning of something better Catalyst: Optimism will take time to return

C

omment heard shortly after news broke that a creditor vote had saved Catalyst Paper from a bankruptcy selloff: “That’s great news, I guess, until next year.” And that is the caveat that will be attached to any mill talk in the foreseeable future. Employees and pensioners have to be celebrating this morning. For them this is clearly a reprieve. But for the greater community, the Crofton pulp mill has been troubled for a long time. More than anything else, its troubles have been tied to the global market for the products it produces and those markets don’t change based on who is in Maybe some charge of Crofton. lessons were So forgive the Cowichan public if it is that those troubled mill stories learned in the skeptical are soon to be a thing of the past. struggle Optimism is not something a community can turn on and off. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and the Catalyst saga has forced some changes on Cowichan that may have made us tougher. The ¿rst and foremost is it provided the impetus for North Cowichan to pare its reliance on the mill to reasonable levels. Not only has it forced residents to shoulder a larger portion of the community-building load, it has led to the early steps of the municipality’s bid to diversify by attracting new jobs and industries. Second, it has forced those secondary businesses that had attached themselves to the mill like a remora to a shark to diversify and ¿nd other sources of revenue as well. Finally, it has forced Catalyst and its workers to reassess themselves and their operation and become leaner, more focused and more dedicated. Yes, optimism is not something easily turned off and on. That said, with this vote we can at least put our ¿nger on the button.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like We have been following Emily Zurrer’s career since she was a teen, so we have some insight into the hard work needed to become an Olympic athlete. So we are very proud and happy to be able to report she will be representing our community and our country on the world’s biggest stage. It doesn’t hurt either, that she represents us so well.

Emily Zurrer overcame some adversity to make this summer’s Olympic soccer team.

It’s pretty easy to bash Duncan council for voting itself what is — by anyone’s standard — a pretty hefty raise. It’s not the raise that’s at issue. It’s the amount. Sure council had some catching up to do after refusing raises for the past 14 years. But this decision has essentially made it like that restraint never happened. Duncan taxpayers should be outraged.

Why don’t we sail our ferries when they are full? Aaron Bichard

News Leader Pictorial

I

f you’ve taken a trip to the mainland via BC Ferries recently, the news that ridership levels hit a 21-year low was hardly news at all. It’s been dif¿cult not to notice the cavernous car decks, empty as a passenger’s wallet, the line-ups at the cafeteria downgraded from never-ending to two-minute waits. Neither was it shocking that, despite frequent, fast-and-furious fare increases, the sea faring corporation’s books were listing hard, leaking some $16 million into the coastal waters. People on both sides of the water are staying home, the costs to cruise the waters too high to make it a feasible option. Now, when it comes to business, I’m no Richard Branson. If I was I’d probably suggest kite-boarding entrepreneurs offer customers rides across the Strait on their backs. No, my business sense is far from the sharp-

est harpoon on the Pequod, but I’d like to take a stab nonetheless at offering a solution to the ferry faeries who keep the boats running on time. My quick ¿x is so simple, it dates back to when ships ¿rst started carrying paying passengers — ¿ll the boats. In order to understand why we have empty ships sailing in the ¿rst place, we need to ¿rst go back to 1807 on an island on the other side of the continent. It was then in New York that Jeremiah Thompson and a group of his Quaker compatriots decided to take a risk and launch a business many believe changed the face of goods and people transport forever. To be a merchant in New York waiting for goods to be shipped from England meant not knowing when your shipment would arrive. Crossing the Atlantic was an expensive proposition and the ships’ captains would wait until they had a full boat before they set sail. These unpredictable delays made it hard for businessmen to keep promises, or to ¿nd buy-

COWICHAN LEADERS

ers for their wares. Thompson and his crew came up with the plan to create a line of packet ships that would set sail from New York and Liverpool, England twice a month on a ¿xed schedule, regardless of whether the ships were full. And so, the Black Ball Line was born, and the ships kept their promise, delivering goods and people in a timely, scheduled manner. This basic shift in thought from maximizing cargo space to a time-centric focus can be seen in all aspects of commerce and transportation today. And it is one of the reasons why BC Ferries Coastal leviathans sail on a timed schedule, regardless if their bellies are ¿lled with paying passengers or not. Well, as fashionistas can attest, what is old can quickly become new again, and maybe it’s time for us to look back to a pre-Black Ball Line era in order to ¿ll the boats. With energy prices rising and the costs of transporting goods increasing, in many facets

of life people are looking to their ancestors’ ways to survive. Chemicals are being tossed aside for organic, grow-your-own food. Groups of reskillers are popping up, learning to use the slower-paced, sustainable practices of yore. Could BC Ferries offer a handful of sailwhen-full boats to complement a reduced schedule of sailings? Sure, it may be inconvenient, but the fares on each full boat would cover the costs. Alternatively, BC Ferries could encourage more passengers to use their services by lowering their rates. But that’s just too obvious. Anyone have a used kite-board for sale?.

Thank you to all those involved who kept the students safe and diffused the situation so calmly. Alison Welsh Stephen, Cowichan Bay

Flimmaking opportunity should not be missed

Dear editor Given the amount of money that will be spent on hotel rooms and local wages I think the community will receive a lot of value from the ¿lming of Cedar Cove in Maple Bay. If there is any chance of a TV series developing we should be as friendly and accommodating as comes so naturally to the valley. It is an opportunity that should not be wasted. Rhoda Taylor, Duncan comments submitted online at cowichannewsleader.com

Legal advice already sought

Dear editor As a history columnist, I see more than a wee bit red when history is twisted by lack of research. I was at the board of education meeting last week when Trustee Duncan Brown supported a motion to retain legal advice to question the legality of ¿ring the Cowichan Valley board because it had chosen to send in a de¿cit budget. “I don’t think (asking for legal advice on the legality of ¿ring) has ever been done before,” he said. During question period and frustrated by a general misunderstanding of historical events, I reminded the board that in 1985, the provincial government challenged the Cowichan board in the Supreme Court of B.C. on the legality of its balanced budget vote which I, as chair, had declared passed even though the board voted 6-3 against. I did this with great respect for the law, because passing a balanced budget was, and is, a requirement of the School Act. Under the Act, individual opinions and decisions are respected, but the board as a corporate entity must respect the law. Our defence in court was that the School Act was against Canada’s Constitution, and removal of an elected board

An of¿cial trustee was appointed in our place and did an adequate job at the helm until a by-election was held almost a year later. The current Cowichan Valley board of education chose the wrong year to do this. This year, there are higher revenues from the international student program, distributed learning, dual-credit program and rentals. This income, combined with a higher surplus at the end of the year, means no cuts are necessary. In fact, the board could start to put back programs it had lost. Given these facts, there is little to no support for the board from B.C.’s school trustees and a dearth of support from the general Cowichan Valley community. This board has made a naive political decision that will resonate through the Cowichan Valley for months, perhaps years, to come. Ann Andersen Duncan

Restoration trustees making a needed statement

Dear editor I would like to offer my sincere support to the C Cowichan school district board of trustees for ppresenting a restoration budget to the government. The trustees have done what many politim ccians do not: followed through on a campaign ppromise. This shows great courage considering tthe threats made by the government to ¿re tthem. I have learned from personal experience hhow constant cuts have affected the educattion system. My children were victims of the Y Yount School closure and the A.B. Greenwell ddebacle. I would strongly urge the Minister of Education to consider this budget carefully and E w work to compromise with the Cowichan board.

Board majority betraying the good faith of the minority trustees

Dear editor My sympathies are with the four school trustees who stood by their principles and oath taken when elected to the school board. They spent their time, energy and money in the campaign to be elected as school trustees, only to ¿nd later that a particular political agenda was already hatched. These four school trustees wanted to do the job they had promised to do, without seeking the upset of rebellion among the ranks. Their intentions were worthwhile, being responsible for the smooth operation of school board business. They now ¿nd themselves in the midst of turmoil and face termination as school trustees, should a de¿cit budget be submitted. Their dreams and visions of serving a vital community commitment for all that is good in education have been dashed. It seems like a betrayal of what these four trustees believed in when they were elected. Morag M. Gilchrist Duncan

oth our board chair Dr. Jonathan Grif¿n and I were out of town, and I only became aware of your June 15 story about the pending closure of the Silverfern Walk-in Medical Clinic upon my return. I’d like to take this opportunity to update you on the work of the Cowichan Valley Division of Family Practice to ensure all residents of our community have access to primary care. The CVDFP is one partner in a collaborative services committee which also includes the Ministry of Health, Vancouver Island Health Authority, and the Cowichan Community Health Network. Together we are working on a plan to ensure everyone in the region has access to a regular primary care provider. Because we work collaboratively, the health care solutions we develop will be both comprehensive and sustainable. One of our early steps was to do a physician survey and a community survey. This provided us with data about the gaps in care in our community from the perspective of both doctors and patients. As a result of our research we have a clear picture of how many people have a family doctor, compared with the number who do not and are looking for one. The reality is that a very small proportion of Cowichan region residents — just ¿ve per cent — have no regular primary care provider. Another 40 per cent do have a doctor but do not necessarily use this provider for all their health care needs. In some cases, issues like transportation and of¿ce hours are barriers to people seeing their regular family doctors. We are working to address this gap, and are hopeful we will soon have a solution to help patients in the Cowichan region who are without their own family doctor. Strategies like our Cowichan Maternity Clinic are already making a difference. Since opening in March 2011, the clinic has provided pre- and post-natal care to 979 mothers. We have delivered more than 328 babies, giving them a good start in life. And we have been able to match 133 patients with family doctors to provide them and their babies with ongoing care in the community. In addition, we are working to address issues such as of¿ce hours and transportation, and encourage those who do have family doctors to see them ¿rst for their health care needs rather than relying on walk-in clinics or ER visits. Research has proven this kind of relationship with a single primary care provider results in better patient health outcomes, increased patient satisfaction, and reduced costs to the healthcare system because of fewer hospital and ER visits, fewer unnecessary tests and prescriptions, etc.

Valerie Nicol is the executive director and attachment lead for Cowichan Division of Family Practice.

“If a developer can’t burn (trees and brush) when putting in a subdivision, how come a farmer can?” That’s because of a provincial environment ministry exception in regional bylaws allowing burning on farm- and forestry lands, explained bylaw of¿cer Nino Morano of the Cowichan Valley Regional District. “This farm’s in the agricultural land reserve. “It lies with province to investigate if it’s burning on an appropriate day, or violating a ¿re ban,” he said of the ¿re measuring about two by three

Saunders all about the giving back Aiding athletes: Philanthropist continues to roll funding into the sports community that nurtured him Peter W. Rusland

f ‘giving back to the community’ is a cliche of generosity, Duncanborn Bob Saunders embodies it. The owner of Victoria’s Saunders Subaru, and his family, have given some $15,000 in the past several years to deserving athletes’ families and schools that have requested help. Most of that money — and cash given by Saunders’ family to folks in other communities — comes from proceeds made during the Saunders Family Foundation Golf Tournament, sponsored by Subaru and other ¿rms, at the Cowichan Golf & Country Club. “I’ve been truly blessed. If you make something, give back,” said Saunders. “We help out with minor hockey, baseball, soccer, and tennis, plus school bands and academics,” Saunders, 77, told the News Leader Pictorial. Valley wrestler Maegan Kuruvita recently received $500 from the foundation — amid about $9,000 awarded locally in the past year, according to board member Jim Tenhope. The Saunders’ foundation also gave $1,000 to a local lad whose mom is dying of cancer.

“When you see things like that happen, it makes you appreciate life and it’s nice to be able to help,” said a benevolent Saunders, who never forgot happy times growing up in Duncan. “That’s my home roots.” It’s also where Saunders played basketball and softball, between rink time with the Mesachie Aces. “Duffy Chaster coached us in basketball, and I coached Neil Dirom in basketball,” said Saunders who has ¿ve kids, 12 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. “Our family has done this all our lives — we’ve been involved in things like building lacrosse boxes. “There’s always kids and others in need — we also helped rebuild a school that burned down in Haiti.” Tenhope ¿gured the Saunders’ golf tourney, and the former Salvation Army tournament, have raised about $100,000 at the Cowichan golf course. “Without (pro-manager) Norm Jackson and having the golf tournament in Cowichan, we wouldn’t be making what we’re making.” “Norm’s fantastic,” agreed Saunders of the contest three weeks ago. “I’m a hacker but I have more fun than anyone. “Our tournament sells out in two weeks. Every penny we raise, 100% goes back to the communities. “It’s growing all the time.” Who gets that money is decided after the foundation’s board receives funding-request letters simply sent to Saunders’ dealership, Tenhope explained. Board members include Saunders

Shawnigan Lake Subaru Triathlon. Saunders the businessman said Shawnigan’s Triathlon could grow to be a winner in sports tourism. “Triathlons and sports tourism is a huge industry, and people should tap into it more. “I could see where you could do a world event at Shawnigan. The Kinsol Trestle is a goldmine — they could create a huge industry with it. “If you get Ironman status, that

brings in over $16 million a year.” Meanwhile, he’s happy helping others. “If someone’s sick and has to get to Vancouver, and we can’t help out, we try and get someone who can. “I get more out of it than the recipients do — if you can give, do it and get involved; give a little time.” Letters of funding requests can be sent to 1784 Old Island Highway, Victoria, B.C., V9B-1H8.

andhi quickly comes to mind when meeting VIU’s senior graduate, Dave Ahluwalia Paul. He lacks the Indian icon’s round-rim glasses and simple white clothing, but Punjab-native Paul has Gandhi’s same wise demeanour and childlike wonder. By treating everyone like friends, Paul, 77, has gained respect from everyone at VIU, from professors to pupils. “I have no problem getting along with anybody,” the Duncan grandfather of four said, sipping tea in his living room. “I boost students’ morale, and tell them to give their opinions; that’s why they like me and want to sit beside me.” Those virtues, plus hard work, earned the lifelong learner a bachelor of arts degree, with distinction, and minors in English and psychology at VIU’s spring convocation, the eldest of 626 grads. Paul also landed on the dean’s honour list with an impressive grade-point average of 3.67. “I started with Grade 8 English,” the retired Crofton millwright told the News Leader Pictorial. His love affair with VIU began 15 years ago when taking a computer science course at

Growth through interaction key to Paul’s philosophy

Local People Local Business Canadian Corporation backing

from previous page

Paul’s passion for ¿nding similarities in everyone matched his fascination with existential concepts of the human mind, and one’s Earthly purpose. “Interaction is how you learn about other cultures. By talking about our similarities is how we can be united.” Paul’s yearn to learn earned him the 2011 Mike Coleman Citizenship Award, given to a top VIU student. “Mike Coleman’s a multi-cultural man like (late Canadian prime minister Pierre) Trudeau — and VIU has an excellent record of (respecting) human rights,” Paul said. With a BA under his belt, Paul — a swimmer — is pursuing more computer courses this fall, plus creative-writing instructor Jay Ruzesky’s course on how to write a memoir. “This university has a charming personality. It is beautiful, sensible, and appealing. “These teachers are my strength, and staff treats me like a somebody,” Paul beamed of his senior-student status. “If I can do it, anyone can.”

Seniors Good Life OLD FASHONED TENNIS

South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club members dressed in period outÄts for the 125th anniversary tea at the club Sunday. The group of ladies, from left: Sue Fryer, Pat Miller, Lillian Lamb and Catherine Hughes, moved around the court pretty well in the long gowns. Far right, Miller hammers a left-handed serve. Middle left, Lamb makes a backhanded return and Fryer is simply smashing as she heads to the net. Tennis and tea brought people from as far away as Calgary. Events at the club continue throughout the summer, but you won’t be seeing players dressed like this again for the Vancouver Island grasscourt championships this weekend. Don Bodger

RETTIG, Werner Johann It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Werner Rettig, beloved husband, father and Opa. He died peacefully with his family at his side on Friday, June 8, 2012. He leaves behind his loving wife Carol of 55 years, 3 children: Nadine, Marilyn (Ben), Allen (Carolynn), and 6 grandchildren: Thomas, Frank, Linden, Mallory, Olivia and Erica. Also left to grieve are his brother Gunther (Selma) and family in Germany. Werner was born March 15,1931 in Rimbach, Germany to father Johannes and mother Ottilie. When he was a small child his family moved to Weinheim, Germany where Werner attended school and trained as an electrician. Werner immigrated to Canada by ship when he was just 20 years old, arriving in Halifax in November 1951. He worked his way west eventually settling for a few years in the town of Youbou where he found employment at BCFP. He met other German and Austrian immigrants and formed many lifelong friendships during those early days. Youbou is also where he met his soul mate Carol. The couple later moved to Honeymoon Bay where Werner was employed by WFI. In 1969, Werner and Carol ďŹ nally settled on their own piece of paradise in the Lake Cowichan area. Werner was an industrial electrician by trade but he wore numerous hats. He built a sawmill, cut his own lumber, built his home, greenhouse, many outbuildings and pieces of furniture. He was an inventor and if he needed something, he could just manufacture it. After retiring he took a welding course, learned how to self publish and has 3 ebooks under several companies notably â&#x20AC;&#x201C; xinxii. com (One more plug for you Dad). He never stopped learning. Aside from his family, he was most proud of his gardens. He was an amazing organic gardener feeding his family year round. In 1984 he won an award in the ďŹ rst Harrowsmith Garden Contest. He also developed his own organic fertilizer that he was eager to share with any like minded gardener. The recipe has appeared in the local newspaper and can be found on the link to www.hwwallacecbc.com. Werner was very family oriented and extremely proud and supportive of us all. He was hard working but always had the time to spend with us. We will dearly miss his stories, his laughter, his love of life and of us. He was a man of great integrity and intellect. After living through World War II as a young boy, his dearest wish has been for world peace. To us he was one in a million. Many thanks to Dr. Kerswell, Dr. Pewarchuk, Dr. Code and Lorene Benoit. The Lake Cowichan Fireman were amazing, as were the ambulance crew. Also thanks to the wonderful staff at Cowichan District Hospital. In celebration of Werner's love of gardening, and in lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, the family asks that you plant something in your garden. A private gathering for family and friends will be held in Wernerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden in July.

Bill was a loving husband that will be greatly missed by his wife of 57 years Ludmilla. He leaves behind his children Marian (Allan), Gordon (Connie), Karen (Claude), also his precious grandchildren Ryan, Stephanie, Brad, Lauren, Alex and Dari. He also leaves behind his many jokes and handyman tools. Bill emigrated from Europe to Canada in 1949 with his mother and one of his brothers to join his father who had immigrated earlier. One brother and his sister stayed in Europe. Ludmilla joined Bill in Canada in 1955. He spent his working years as a Trimmerman in the Mill in Honeymoon Bay. In his later years he enjoyed family, friends, food, hockey and yard work. Thanks to the staff at Cowichan District Hospital for their supportive care of dad. Special thanks to Amber for her exceptional caring nature at 9.05pm. There will be a celebration of life on Wednesday 27th June 2012 at 1pm at Sands Funeral Chapel, 187 Trunk Road, Duncan, BC.

Mustangs continue hot streak Sweep success: Team vaults to five games over .500 with two more wins Don Bodger

owichan Valley Mustangs swept a doubleheader from the Chilliwack Cougars Sunday to move ¿ve games over the .500 mark. The Mustangs defeated the Cougars 4-1 and 4-3 at Evans Park in Duncan to improve their regular-season record to 17-12 in the B.C. Minor Midget AAA Baseball League. Trevor Read went the distance on the mound in the ¿rst game. “He pitched a really good game,’’ said manager Lorne LaFleur. Shortstop Dustin Jordan had a strong game, turning a couple of double plays and bringing in two runs with a single in the ¿fth inning. The Mustangs fell behind 1-0 in the second game until the ¿fth inning but then scored four consecutive runs over two innings for a comfortable lead. Jace Brown hit a double to the fence to open things up. The Cougars made things interesting with two runs in the seventh, but the Mustangs held on. Cory Dewar was the winning pitcher in the second game. Pitching has been the strong suit for the Mustangs this season, with Read, Dewar and Devon Geary carrying the load of late and Robert Busch providing support.

ps and downs are expected in any sport and the Cowichan Valley Junior B Thunder lacrosse team isn’t

immune. But even coach Josh Van Wieren has to marvel when his team brings its A game with all its best players available and what a difference it makes on the Àoor in the eventual ¿nal result. The Thunder has been riding out the highs and lows, trying not to get too worked up either way depending on player availability. June 11 saw the Thunder at its best in an 8-2 shellacking of the Nanaimo Timbermen at home. “That game was a solid 58 minutes of lacrosse, for sure,’’ said Van Wieren. “That was de¿nitely our A lineup. We had our third years.’’ That hasn’t been the case in most other recent games due to a variety of factors. “It could have been an 8-0 or 10-0 ¿nal,’’ said Van Wieren. “We completely outplayed them. Every aspect of the game was Cowichan lacrosse — Cowichan everything.’’ The Thunder also had a decent outing in a previous home game against the Westshore Bears, but lost 8-5. Goalkeeper Derek Anderson rolled his ankle but played anyway, although it kept him out of the lineup in a later game. The Thunder has not fared well in previous outings against Westshore. “We lost it, but we were in it the entire time,’’ said Van Wieren. “The ¿rst time we played them we had a Midget A goalie and got blown out. But he de¿nitely stepped up and played his part and gave us a respectable chance.’’ The Thunder also went down to defeat against Westshore in the next

The team has been getting out of the gate quickly, staying away from penalties in the second and then running out of gas in the third. “It’s not we’re not ¿t enough,’’ said Van Wieren. “We’re not playing smart enough with the ball.’’ The Thunder hosts Campbell River Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Island Savings Centre.

Chargers jolt the Crew for Sun Bowl title New champs: Absence of Texas team opens the door for others and Vancouver squad takes advantage Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

T

he sun always shines during the Sun Bowl. Eventually. The Cowichan Women’s Football League’s 27th annual tournament started under grey skies Saturday at McAdam and Rotary Parks after a wet Friday. Thick clouds hovered over the ¿elds most of the day Saturday but only produced the occasional sprinkle and gave way to a fabulous Sunday to conclude the prestigious event. North Cowichan-Duncan Wall of Famer Chris Mann, who’s been the man in charge of the organization from the start, always marvels at the atmosphere surrounding the tournament. Teams dress up in costume and really get into the spirit of the competition. The calibre of play is top-notch, but the fun and the friendships go far beyond the action on the ¿eld. “It’s been entertaining, that’s for sure,’’ said Mann of his longtime involvement in what’s become a must on the calendar for so many ladies playing football from the island and beyond over the years. “All these years with all the different weather we’ve had, for the most part they’re all still smiling at the end.’’ Participation is still the key, Mann stressed, and the atmosphere of the whole thing can’t be matched anywhere. “Each year, it’s just got better with the organization and how things have gone,’’ he said. Dale Carnochan, coach of the Matrix, epitomizes the commitment shown by people to make the tournament happen. After considerable rain Friday, Carnochan was still lining the ¿elds with fancy white and orange markings around midnight in preparation for Saturday’s early start. Vancouver’s Chargers, also known as the Girls Gone Wild, won the championship but also emphasized how happy they were just to be here. “I’ve been coming to this tournament for over 20 years,’’ said Chargers’ spokesperson Mandy Carlson. “It’s a great tournament. I think the ¿rst years we came there was eight teams.’’ “Chris does an amazing job,’’ added Andrea Schnider, who has played for other Vancouver entries in the tournament before joining the Chargers. The ¿eld was actually down from 21 teams the previous three years to 18, but it was just one of those anomalies that occurs from time to time. The three-time defending champion squad from Texas didn’t make an appearance this year for a variety of reasons — family, injuries, etc. — but expect to be back in the future. “Next year, I think it’ll be back up to 21,’’ said Mann. “I’m hoping.’’ The Florida Wildcats have expressed an interest

in coming next year and other potential teams are always in the mix thinking about ¿lling a spot. Vancouver’s seven teams, six from Victoria and ¿ve from Cowichan made it an interesting competition to ¿ll the void left by the Texans as champions. Cowichan’s Ravens didn’t enter but ¿lled in on other Victoria teams. For the ¿rst time ever, Cowichan had four teams ¿nishing in the top six of the Top Flight division. “All those teams are up there because of the Crew,’’ said Mann, who also coaches the Wild¿re. “They forced us to be better.’’ The Wild¿re placed among the tournament’s best for the ¿rst time in many years and “I’m sure that’s part of the reason,’’ said Mann of the Crew’s inÀuence. The Crew played in Sunday’s ¿nal against the Chargers and wanted desperately to assume the Texans’ throne. But it wasn’t to be, as the Chargers scored on a long interception return and added another touchdown on a long passing play — both in the ¿rst half — to beat the Crew 12-0. The Crew was plagued by dropped balls, missed opportunities and just plain bad luck. “We just couldn’t get a break in that game,’’ said Pat Mould, who announced after the game he’s of¿cially retiring after a long tenure as the Crew’s coach. “If we would have scored on that ¿rst drive, it’s a totally different game.’’ But that drive toward the goal line ended in the Chargers’ interception return for a TD that quickly turned the tables. The Crew got untracked in the second half, but it’s a long way back when trailing by 12 points in a short game. A sustained drive to open the half ended near the goal line on a third-down pass just out of the reach of Ann Polman Tuin. “It would have been nice to win obviously,’’ said

Big-time play is made by Soleil Switzer of the Matrix, top left, to knock the ball away from the Peaches. Clockwise from above: the Crew defence swarms all over the Chargers’ Ashley Petrie; ball is just out of the reach of Ann Polman Tuin; and Leanne Closson of the Law tries to elude the Filly’s defence.

Polman Tuin, who has made the long commute from Lantzville to play on the team but is also calling it quits to concentrate on time with her daughter who’s turning ¿ve July 12. The Crew beat the Chargers in Vancouver during a long weekend tournament in May but couldn’t duplicate the feat. “Things weren’t going our way,’’ said Crew quarterback Jackie Thibodeau. “Last time we played them we had to play really well and make some great catches.’’ “I thought it might be our year to pull it off,’’ said teammate Heidi Padjen. The Crew will be splitting up and going their separate ways next year. Padjen and sister Mila Main are planning to form a new team with some other friends.

The Chargers rejoiced in their triumph, with a great performance from all players — led by MVP Ashley Petrie. “We made big plays and we used our speed,’’ said Schnider. “We kept composed.’’ “We didn’t get rattled,’’ agreed Carlson. The most sportsmanlike team was Cowichan’s Sirens. Victoria’s XTreme won the spirit award, playing in their sailor costumes the entire weekend. Matrix placed third, the Suns fourth, Wild¿re ¿fth and The Law sixth to round out the Top Flight standings. The XTreme led the Almost Top Flight group followed by the Sharks, Dragons, Barracudas, Crush and Panthers. Filly’s won the Grounded division, with Tight and Bright second, Sirens third, Swarm fourth, Assassins ¿fth and Peaches sixth.

ASK TERRIE

Terrie Pickering, Funeral Director

Everything you have wanted to know and never known who to ask? Question: Other than pre-arranging for a funeral, what other steps can I take to be prepared for what lies ahead? Answer: Other than pre-arranging, it is a good idea to chose an executor, prepare a last will and testament, prepare a living will, establish a power of attorney and make wishes for any organ donations. These are just a few steps in preparing for what lies ahead. Please call one of our funeral directors for any further information.

ooking for a place to immerse yourself in some soothing, relaxing music? Avoid the Duncan Garage Showroom, Thursday. Big John Bates is all about hell¿re remedies and songs that serenade by a rusty hammer unloaded from his Gretsch in more than 1,000 shows in 17 countries before tens of thousands of fans. “Now he’s hooked up with a menacing new band, pounding the dark roots of Americana with garage punk blues, “ his press material states. “Clutch your drink to your chest and

leave your chastity at the door — there is nothing like a night with these devil-maycare troubadours. With Brandy Bones on upright bass, cello and vocals and JT Massacre on drums, the band is riding its trusty Murderbus to Duncan to unload tunes from its new Headless Fowl EP and more. “Just don’t expect them to stay on the stage. They like to get up close and personal — not just playing from the heart, tearing it out by the roots.” Tickets are $12 advance, $15 door.
