Lottery win leads to early retirement

VOL. 24, NO. 34

Two escape plane crash uninjured

FINGER FOOD

A scratch-and-win ticket worth more than half a million dollars means Nanaimo resident Ian Thompson has more time to spend with his family. The millworker won the $500,000 grand prize on a Classic Black Scratch and Win ticket bought at Save-On-Foods and plans to use the money for early retirement. “I plan on spending time walking around Westwood Lake and relaxing with my family,” Thompson said, in a press release from the B.C. Lottery Corporation. Thompson, 61, didn’t realize he won when he checked his ticket. Not wearing his glasses, he didn’t know he had the winning ticket until the retailer started yelling. It’s the first time he’s won a large prize. “The shock is just like you’d imagine it would be when you win,” Thompson said. “It’s exciting to be able to retire.”

Two men escaped uninjured after engine trouble forced an emergency water landing in the Nanoose Bay area Sunday morning. The mayday call came in at 8:45 a.m. Sunday, just 10 minutes after the plane left Nanaimo airport, said Jeff Olsson, maritime coordinator with Victoria’s Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre. The two people were flying in a homebuilt, ultra-light aircraft that was having some sort of engine trouble, Olsson said. They put the plane down in the water about four kilometres northeast of the entrance to Nanoose Bay harbour. “It sounds like they just skimmed along the surface of the water and then bailed out,” said Olsson. “The plane sunk out beneath them fairly quickly.” A coast guard crew from French Creek picked the men up, uninjured but a little cold, after they were in the water about 25 minutes, he said. They were taken back to Schooner Cove Marina in Nanoose Bay, where marina staff gave them dry clothing and coffee before shuttling them back to the airport. Dockhand Bob Baker said at least one man lived in Nanaimo and while neither was hurt, they were shaken up from the crash. Olsson said the men were headed for Gillies Bay on Texada Island for an annual flyin event. At least two pleasure craft in the area, as well as the manager from Schooner Cove Marina and Nanaimo Harbour Patrol, offered assistance, he added.

Adjustments necessary after federal funds cut for emergency planning

city scene

Mounties ask for witnesses Nanaimo Mounties are looking for witnesses to a hit-and-run at the MidIsland Co-Op gas bar at Brooks Landing. The incident happened Thursday at about 7:20 p.m. when an 81-yearold Nanaimo man was knocked to the ground by a vehicle backing up. The vehicle – a large, red four-door sedan with a sunroof, possibly a Mercedes or BMW – then left the scene. The victim suffered scrapes to his head and one hand and was not taken to hospital. Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information about the vehicle and its driver is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-7542345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 or online at www. nanaimocrimestoppers. com.

Smoke bomb attracts crews Firefighters rushed to the scene of what they thought might be a bush fire, but found a smoke bomb instead. The incident happened in the 3500 block of Rock City Road around 10:30 p.m. Friday. Rick Kwasnecha, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer, said fire crews found the device on the side of the road and turned the investigation over to Nanaimo RCMP P “A member attended and found the smoke bomb was a consumer product and not homemade,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. O’Brien, who had no detailed information about the device, said its remains were collected and disposed of.

Emergency planning for Canadian municipalities, regional districts, and search and rescue groups suffered a significant blow with Ottawa’s plan to cancel its Joint Emergency Preparedness Program next March. Established in 1980, the program contributed more than $170 million to enhance the country’s capacity to respond to emergencies or natural disasters. Projects are proposed annually by provincial and territorial governments on behalf of municipalities and regional districts and cost-shared with the federal government. The Regional District of Nanaimo received close to $50,000 in JEPP funding since 2004. Jani Drew, RDN emergency coordinator, said the cancellation of the federal portion will affect the objective to be operationally ready at all times to respond and recover from an emergency or disaster. “You’re never finished with emergency preparedness or increasing the resilience of a community. It’s an ongoing process you need to nurture and refresh,” she said. “It’s almost a living thing you need to continue to invest in.” The funding was used for training, emergency exercises

and equipment for the RDN’s emergency operation centre and reception centre. “In 2009 we had a large-scale fire exercise with 200 participants and 50 per cent of that was paid by JEPP,” said Drew. “There was so much benefit to every stakeholder agency and the public, and we couldn’t have done it at that scale without the funding.” Plans for a 2014 earthquake scenario exercise are being reexamined due to the cuts. The cuts come just when the public’s awareness for emergency management and preparedness is increasing. “We are constantly trying to work on getting the community prepared and JEPP is a resource we certainly could use,” she said. James Lunney, NanaimoAlberni Conservative MP, said the program was established because gaps were identified in the ability of local governments and provinces to respond quickly to emergency situations. “A lot of good work has happened over the last several years,” he said. “Emergency preparedness is a provincial responsibility and we feel the capacity has been addressed to the point the program has fulfilled its objectives.” Jean Crowder, Nanaimo-Cowichan NDP MP, said the cuts are another example of back-door downloading by Ottawa. news@nanaimobulletin.com

BETHLEHEM CENTRE hosting open house later this month to celebrate special anniversary.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 Nanaimo News Bulletin

Grand reopening scheduled for city’s historic train station BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

P

eople can contemplate almost anything as they walk the path constructed from 7,000 stones at the Bethlehem Retreat Centre. The stones were handmade and laid in the exact pattern of the pavement labyrinth on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France. People come from all over the world to walk the labyrinth constructed on the grounds of the retreat, said Lucia Gamroth, a Bethlehem centre volunteer. The labyrinth is one attraction people can experience during the retreat’s 25th anniversary open house July 29, from 1-3 p.m. The event will include musical entertainment, guided tours of the centre and a chance to learn its history. Mary Ann Gisler, retreat director and a Benedictine sister, said people often walk by on the Westwood Lake trails and see the retreat, but some don’t know what the centre is. “This is going to give everyone the opportunity to see it from the inside,” she said. “It’s a wonderful moment in our history because you have this sense of gratitude, because over these 25 years there have been thousands of people who have come through here.” The retreat was founded in 1987 under the leadership of Benedictine sister Jill Aigner. The Benedictine sisters purchased the retreat property from the Catholic diocese of Victoria in 2002. It grew from a single building, which was used to host meetings and spiritual observances, to a centre with a chapel, two accommodation buildings, a garden area and several conference rooms. Gisler said people come for various reasons. Some are searching for peace or meaning in their lives and others just want a quiet place to connect with nature. “They always drink in the energy of nature that surrounds this place,” she said. “You can be led by your spirit and heart [here].” Gisler said the retreat is open to people from all walks of life and all faiths. The retreat often hosts meetings and conferences or hosts people

who just want to enjoy the natural setting for a day. The retreat already started celebrating its anniversary. Earlier in July, about 200 people who had been guests, volunteers or workers at the retreat were invited to share stories. Gamroth said it was wonderful to hear the experiences of people involved in the retreat and what the centre meant to them. “It’s just an amazing experience,” she said. Bethlehem Retreat Centre is located at 2371 Arbot Rd. For more information please go to www.bethlehemretreatcentre.com, call 250-7543254 or e-mail bethret@shaw.ca.

From the ashes of disaster rose a key component in the return of passenger rail service on the Island. The Nanaimo Train Station on Selby Street was badly damaged by fire in 2007, but a community desire to restore the building put a $2.4-million fundraising campaign in motion. VIA Rail’s fire insurance kicked in $869,000, the Young Professionals of Nanaimo raised $410,000 through a series of campaigns and the former Downtown Nanaimo Partnership Society contributed $40,000. On the strength of a lease for Fibber Magee’s Station Irish pub, the Island Corridor Foundation, owners of the railway corridor, were able to secure a $1.1-million commercial mortgage. The hard work has paid off with the station reopening July 25. Graham Bruce, Island Corridor Foundation CEO, had doubts the building could be saved after his first tour of the site. “It was pretty sad. It was determined there was enough left to save it, but I couldn’t believe the reconstruct that was being suggested,” he said. “The crews have done a remarkable job of restoring the building. I’m really blown away.”

Darren Moss, a director of Tectonica Management and the construction manager, called it a challenging project, but rewarding. “We ended up lifting the building, blasting underneath, reconstructing a new foundation and then giving it structural upgrades and seismic improvements,” he said. “Then we had to conceal all the modernday mechanical systems within the fabric of a 100-year-old building.” Andre Sullivan was president of YPN when the group took up the challenge to raise $400,000 for the project and admits the undertaking was huge. “We had a lot of energy, not a lot of money, but we knew the community would back the project,” he said. Bruce said the station is not only a tremendous asset for Nanaimo, but for the Island as well. “The objective of the foundation is to see each station on the Island have a unique quality and characteristic about it. We want them to be alive and open and not just for the moment the train comes in,” he said. “The Nanaimo station sets the bar high. It is the grand opening of this station, but in a greater sense, it’s the affirmation of rail on Vancouver Island.” news@naniamobulletin.com

Silly sailors shore up support for CDC BY ROY OSTLING THE NEWS BULLETIN

S

trong winds and a few drops of rain couldn’t blow the 28th annual Silly Boat Regatta in Maffeo Sutton Park off course as throngs of Nanaimoites of all ages turned out to watch the races and enjoy a host of fun-filled family activities. More than 40 teams participated in this year’s Silly Boat Regatta, helping to raise $91,000 for Nanaimo’s Child Development Centre and its intervention and rehabilitation programs. The Buccaneer Inn team was the final regatta race champion, but the wacky boats and colourful team costumes and many free family events

made the 10,000 spectators and the community the real winners. “What made this year’s event memorable was the phenomenal community support,” said Michelle Kocourek, CDC resource development coordinator. “The weather got us off

to a slower start but the sun came out and the usual crowds turned out for all the free family fun.” The Buccaneer Inn team’s third time in the Silly Boat Regatta proved to be lucky as it paddled its way to the championship trophy and raised $1,300 in pledges for CDC programs helping children and youth with development challenges. Asked about their race winning strategy, the Buccaneer Inn’s 14-member team said it was “just paddling for the kids.” “This is the best event in town and we’re proud to help out and be part of such an excellent community celebration,” said Dane Ilyn, owner of the Buccaneer Inn, pledging to return for next year’s Silly Boat Regatta. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

When the province appoints a seniors’ advocate some time this fall, he or she will have a great deal of work to do, although that work remains to be defined. However, says Ron Cantelon, the ParksvilleQualicum Liberal MLA and parliamentary secretary for seniors, said whoever gets the job shouldn’t try to fix everything at once. Speaking after concluding a whirlwind tour of the province to discuss what it is the advocate should do, Cantelon said the key will be to deal with the issues in stages. In fact, he said, the gover nment is already taking action. “We want to get ahead of the curve,” Cantelon said, noting the so-called silver tsunami of aging Baby Boomers is fast approaching. “We are building infrastructure, but it’s an incremental process.” Cantelon cited the Seniors’ Help Line as one step taken to address the needs of seniors. The tour, he noted, stretched from Parksville to Dawson Creek to Cranbrook and involved public forums where seniors gave their views of not only what they see as the weaknesses of the current support system, but also gave suggestions about how to fix it. One key part of the advocate’s task, he said, will be to provide support for the many groups and organizations that already provide services to seniors. “There are a lot of great organizations spread out throughout the province helping seniors navigate the system and they need help and support,” he said. “That’s a role the advocate could do, possibly training people to help others navigate the system and become a person that seniors can talk to who will listen and take their concerns forward,” he said.

We are building infrastructure, but it’s an incremental process.

EDITORIAL

Retiring MLAs sittingg pretty p y

Who says it doesn’t pay to be a politician – even for a blink of an eye? With the B.C. Liberals in a freefall and the provincial election 10 months away, a number of MLAs have decided to leave politics. Much is made by some about the sacrifices made by politicians, of the time spent away from family, of the decision to take a break from their career passion – all to serve the public good. And, while it is admirable to see people take an active part in the democratic process, make no mistake, it is a decision that often pays lucrative dividends beyond anything a working stiff will ever realize. Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer is one of the latest B.C. Liberals to decide against seeking re-election next year. According to Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation figures, Hayer’s 12 years in office will give him an annual pension that will start at $47,600 when he turns 65 and climb to $62,900 when he turns 80. The MLA pension plan is indeed goldplated as taxpayers chip in $4 for every dollar the MLA contributes. More maddening is the fact the B.C. Liberals, under then-leader Gordon Campbell, campaigned in the 1996 election against exorbitant pension plans. The NDP won and implemented a reasonable pension plan, one in which the taxpayer would add one dollar for every dollar the MLA contributed. In 2007, however, Campbell reversed his position and brought back a troughladen pension, even going so far as to allow MLAs to buy back for a song those years lost. Political pension plans at the provincial and federal levels are disturbing and do nothing to counter the perception (which is reality) that entering the political arena is the path to setting yourself up for life, with your retirement funded well by taxpayers who can barely get by.

camp in. I was busy getting something ready for a party so a friend offered to fire it up to preheat it. Seconds later my friend Ron Lambert, Nanaimo’s fire chief, emerged from behind the tent with the hair that hadn’t been singed off his forearm still smoldering and told me how it shot a five-foot tongue of flame at him from under its control panel. The unit we replaced it with suffered its baptism by fire the night of my wife’s birthday party when I discovered “lean hamburger” is really a relative term. It was the second batch of patties that supplied the critical mass of fat triggering what I could best describe as my personal backyard Chernobyl. I only turned away for a few seconds to hand my wife a glass of wine when I heard the sizzle of flaming grease and ticks of expanding metal from the apocalyptic fireball erupting from under its lid. Once I got the fire out, the hamburgers weren’t that bad, actually. They were just blacker and skittered around the serving platter a bit more than usual. Everyone said how impressed they were – given what appeared to be a genuine risk of a propane explosion – with how calmly I walked over, turned the burners off one by one and brought the inferno to heel. Last month I finally got around to replacing the lid handle that melted off.

Columnist’s climate rants simply boring propaganda To the Editor, Re: Lakes research shutdown nonsense, Science Matters, July 12. The recent column from the David Suzuki Foundation does not promote any positive ideas. The whining and complaining is something that we do not expect from an environmental organization that is funded by donation. The slamming of political groups by this organization leaves one to wonder how many bridges they are burning in regards to the funding by people from certain parties. The stories the David Suzuki Foundation are broadcasting are not in the best interest of the young people who read the nonsense. We live in a democracy where the people in power were voted into a position to make some choices for everyone. To continually look for evidence of political dirty laundry and then parade it has become repetitious, boring and ineffective. The terms ‘greenhouse gases’ and ‘global responsibility’ and ‘climate change’ have become the tools of the Suzuki Foundation. This propaganda is now being used by the media and politicians to control the resources of this country. Who and where we ship our resources to in the future will determine our quality of life. The resources will be sold and delivered, but the choices that exclude Asia will leave us with one option, the U.S. The U.S. is controlling your thoughts through pollution propaganda. The ‘terms of pollution’ have created an anxious population of people who believe they need to stand up and voice their opinion. The ‘green Canadian’ is a hypocritical title, as we are known to be one of the worst polluters per capita on the planet. And as we support the underground hoarding of crude oil in the U.S. and they burn it to the tune of 19.5 million barrels every day. Is it wise to pipe oil to the U.S. when they are so far in debt to China? Our Canadian quality of life will not remain the same without either the U.S. or China as trading partners. The China debt will not be on hold forever, something will happen soon. The Chinese Yuan is being held low for a reason. Matt James Nanaimo

More information early better for everyone

To the Editor, Re: Earlier connection would be helpful, Saturday Beat, July 7. This very worthwhile article points at one of the sad facts in our modern democracy, the apparent disconnect between government and citizens. Federally as well as provincially, it may be difficult to envision that a single vote every four or so years has any effect on our affairs. However, on the local level this should be different since we are

Giving notice of changes just prior to third reading in council is unfair and impractical.

very close to the people that we have elected to govern us, and we can attend council meetings and even participate. For this proximity to be relevant though, more information has to be made available early. As stated in the article – relative to a development in one’s neighbourhood for example – more information should be made available to the residents of the affected area perhaps before the second reading. Giving notice of changes just

prior to the third reading in council is unfair and impractical to both sides. The developer by that time has invested already a considerable amount of money and time, and therefore would not be interested to make any changes. Homeowners tend to get the impression they are being ignored. So, yes, more information early, please, for a better community. Dieter Reeh Nanaimo

Readers respond: Feedback on news items Quality of city water remains questionable To the Editor, Re: Bottled water offers choice, Opinion, June 28. Nanaimo council recently decided to ban the sale of bottled water from public facilities, making the claim that city tap water is certainly an acceptable replacement for bottled water. Researching the sources of bottled water I have found the following: ◆ Ninety-five per cent of bottled water comes from deep well aquifers and if the bottled water is identified as natural spring water, it cannot have been filtered or treated and still carry the label natural spring water: that is a ruling of the federal government; ◆ Five per cent of bottled water comes from municipal water sources. An example of such a brand would be Aquafina. This water is sourced from a municipal supply in Vancouver and is subjected to a seven-step treatment process before bottling for sale. This includes four levels of filtration in addition it is treated with UV, reverse osmosis and finally is ozonated. How can the City of Nanaimo make the claim that our tap water, which comes from a potentially dangerous open source, treated only with chlorination resulting in such a potential health hazard as to necessitate the expenditure of $72 million to provide proper treatment, be considered as safe as either of the above bottled water sources? I pose the same question to your readers as I have to the Vancouver Island Health Authority health officer: “Do you consider the water currently being supplied to Nanaimo households as safe as bottled water taken from a municipal water supply that has been further treated with UV and reverse osmosis?” It would seem that the answer would have to be no or else it is difficult to justify the $72-million cost to Nanaimo taxpayers to filter our water just once. This decision seems to have

Many people see separation as a cure for this type of fiasco. Radical? Perhaps, but the Czechs and Slovaks seem to get along better now, except when they face off on a hockey rink. The West could continue subsidizing the have-nots while they forced themselves to learn innovation, productivity and sensible politics. It’s likely just dreaming and I’ve digressed enough anyway. As a bit of aside trivia though, doesn’t the Balfour Declaration mentioned in the referenced letter go back to the First World War? Jim Corder Nanaimo

Productive politicking nowhere on horizon To the Editor, Re: Fairer ways exist, but not wanted, Letters, July 12. This letter neatly illuminates the reason we are unlikely to see changes to our system of electing Members of Parliament and hopefully will also dissuade more ideas like “that bastardized transferable ballot system”. On a related issue, I also find the habit that some politicians have of tailoring their spiels to suit different areas as they cross our diverse land scrounging for our votes, as quite insulting. The most recent example is the NDPs touring Tom Mulcair who will rant about Alberta’s dirty “tar” sands in order to keep Quebec on side, then have the gall to show his face in Alberta claiming to be “in awe” over the size of what he now calls the “oil” sands. Then it’s on to B.C. where he wants to “pull the plug” on the Northern Gateway Pipeline. He obviously can’t see how curtailing Alberta’s ability to sell oil also curtails the amount they can toss into the welfare pot called equalization which supports his province’s social programs.

Cellphone companies should help 911 costs To the Editor, Re: Supreme court rejects city’s 911 cellphone levy, July 12. Is the cellphone congolmerate so powerful that it can collect a 75-cent per month levy for 911 and not pay any of that to local municipalities? If there is such a levy, then it should be used to relieve the burden on local taxpayers. Perhaps there is a way to add to the fees charged for the use of land for the transmission towers. The provincial and federal governments would both get a boost for making all of the cellphone companies pay their fair share for this vital service. J. Sharpe Nanaimo

Dog parks no place to use training collars To the Editor, Re: Dog owner choked up over chain, July 14. Several years ago we lost a beautiful, loving Rhodesian Ridgeback in just such an accident in a Parksville dog park. She was wearing a Martindale training collar which got entangled with another dog. We are still traumatized about this and agree there should be no collars in the dog park. Helen and Ron Embree Nanaimo

Tournament tackles MS

Corinne and Al Jensen have worked tirelessly to plan a golf tournament to benefit people living with multiple sclerosis and to support research to find a cure for the disease. The fight is personal for the couple, as Corinne has been living with MS for more than 20 years, being diagnosed on her 28th birthday. After she was unable to continue working, she decided to use her skills and talents to help fundraise for the MS Society and recently joined the local chapter’s board of directors. “It is so essential that the hundreds of people living with MS in our community can depend on the Central Island Chapter of

Inbrief Rooster sign in focus city scene

Berry pickers can help NALT Nanaimo and Area Land Trust has the future in mind when it comes to this year’s growing season. The Trust co-hosts its fourth annual Wild Foods Festival in April and would like residents to contribute through its Pick-a-Pail program. When out in their garden or favorite wild berry patch, people can pick a pail of berries for festival chefs to use in samples of foods made with wild ingredients Freeze them on cookie trays or bring them fresh to NALT’s stewardship centre, 8-140 Wallace St., and volunteers will freeze them. And as native flowers and plants go to seed, people can help NALT’s Natural Abundance Native Plant Nursery replenish and expand its seed stocks. Residents can harvest their seeds by drying them in a bowl or paper bag indoors and then deliver them to NALT in a bag or an envelope with the plant name marked clearly on it. For more information, please go to www.nalt. bc.ca or call 250-7141990.

T he sight of a rooster could win an Island photographer a host of prizes. The Island Farmers’ Alliance is hosting its summer photo contest with shutterbugs keeping an eye out for the association’s rooster sign. To qualify for the contest, photographers can e-mail a photo of the IFA rooster sign, along with the name of the farm where they saw the sign, to ifacontest@islandfarmersalliance.org. Each sign, and far m, counts as a single entry into the contest. There are regional prizes to be won, including two tickets to the annual Saanich Peninsula Harvest Feast Sept. 22. The contest deadline is Sept. 5. The rooster sign indicates a farm is a member of IFA and has agreed to its code of ethics. “The contest is a fun way for people to start looking for the rooster, an emblem

The temperature inside a parked car at this time of year, even one that’s in the shade, can climb well above 38 C. Dogs can withstand high temperatures for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or even death. Besides dogs and cats, it’s important to take good care of your small animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits and rats.

Snapping a photo of an Island Farmers’ Alliance rooster sign could earn photographers a prize.

As the temperature rises, so do the risks for your pet. That’s the message from the B.C. SPCA as it ramps up efforts to raise awareness about the hazards and potentially fatal consequences when mixing hot summer heat and animals. Many people like to take their dogs with them to the beach or on errands, but it’s risky to take a canine friend in a vehicle.

arts Author finds answers in family’s ancestry Sheelagh Whittaker used her family’s history – and her journey to uncover it – for her first full-length novel BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

C

reative writing schools often teach students to write what they know – and what does a writer know more about than their own

family? While researching her family’s geneology, Sheelagh Whittaker came across a story that was both shocking and intriguing – her great-grandfather’s second wife, along with her sister, were charged with the murder of the former’s illegitimate toddler. She and her sister uncovered the family history after finding testimony of her grandmother, who was just nine at the time of the trial. The story was just the sort that Whittaker was looking for. “I thought, here’s my book,” she said. The Slaidburn Angell traces Whittaker’s family history in Britain, along with a first-person account of the genealogical search, interspersed with modern history. Whittaker said she didn’t shy away from the personal nature of the story, despite some of its negative aspects, because she always strove for honesty about herself. Whittaker, who owns a home in Nanaimo and visits regularly, earned a master’s degree in business administration and climbed the corporate ladder to currently sit on the board of directors for Imperial Oil. She is also a director for Standard Life. She was featured in the Women of

DEDDEDA PHOTO

Sheelagh Whittaker, near her home in Nanaimo, traced her family’s roots for her first full-length novel. She talks about the book, The Slaidburn Angel, at Harbourfront library July 22.

Influence lecture series and named “The Pioneer” in the Globe and Mail’s Women in Power series. She is also a member of Maclean’s Honour Roll. “I’m still a working woman,” Whittaker said. She considers herself a feminist and a fighter for women’s rights, which leads her to always be honest with other women about her own struggles and consequences of her choices. “That has been characteristic of my

style,” she said. The Slaidburn Angell was researched and written over a 12-year period, which saw her live in Australia and Canada, while maintaining a family and full-time job. It’s her first full-length novel, aside from contributions to books like Memos to the Prime Minister, but she started writing as a child. She was first published in the Alberta Poetry Yearbook in 1960 and while her poem Oil! didn’t win,

it was printed on the very last page of the anthology. For her next book, she draws on her experiences and feminist ideals once again for a series of stories, inspired by the Canterbury Tales. Whittaker presents her book for reading and discussion at Harbourfront library on July 22, 1-3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Please call 250-753-1154, ext. 238. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

sports DBL T-men star counts to 50

I

SENIOR B lacrosse player Jon Diplock leads way in win.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Sunday’s senior B lacrosse game was a strange one, but there was one aspect that was the same as usual – Jon Diplock’s high-scoring ways. Diplock scored his 50th goal of the season as part of a five-goal game Sunday as the Nanaimo DBL Timbermen defeated the Langley Warriors 12-9 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The Warriors came to Vancouver Island so under-manned that they had to borrow a Nanaimo player, Alex McDougall, and that still only bumped their lineup up to eight runners. McDougall went on to score a hat trick against his DBL team, keeping the game close before Diplock’s three third-period goals salted it away. “We didn’t play as strong a game as we wanted, but we did all we needed to do to win,” said Mike Maughan, coach of the DBL T-men. “Playing a team like this, it’s easy to get complacent, so it’s a good time to reiterate getting back to basics and the things that are going to help you win a game like this where you’re maybe not as focused and sharp and at full pace.” Diplock now has 53 goals, which is the most in franchise history since Kevin Shires scored 53 in 1992. The team record is 60, set by Ken Morrison in 1991. Diplock said it was exciting to reach the 50-goal milestone. “I’ve just pretty much been doing the same thing I’ve been doing my whole career, I’ve just seemed to find the net,” he said.

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo DBL Timbermen player Jon Diplock, front, scores one of his five goals on the night in Sunday’s 12-9 win over the Langley Warriors in senior B lacrosse action at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

Maughan said Diplock has been able to score so many goals while playing consistently and unselfishly. “He’s getting the goals that are important, too, and he’s deserving of everything he’s gotten this year. He’s been an impressive player.”

Trevor Walton added a hat trick in Sunday’s game and Ryan Forslund, Brent Holness, Tyler Archer and Kyle Noble also scored. Pat Mallough was the winning goalie. On Thursday, the Timbermen scored a 12-10 road win over the Ladner Pioneers.

GAME ON … The DBL T-men (11-7) have one more regularseason game remaining, Friday (July 20) on the road against the North Shore Indians (2-14-0-1). If the T-men defeat the Indians, they are assured of finishing with the No. 4 seed for playoffs. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Visitors win B.C. championship at fastball field

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Abbotsford Yard Dogs third baseman Geoff Dodson fields a grounder and throws to first base.

Timbermen regain their confidence

The home team couldn’t capture a championship in its home park, but it now has a better idea of what it will take to win a title. The Wheatsheaf team finished out of the medal hunt as the Abbotsford Yard Dogs won Softball B.C.’s senior men’s fastball championship on Sunday in Cedar. Abbotsford defeated

the Sooke Smoke 4-0 in the gold-medal game at the Wheatsheaf Sports Complex, after the Parksville Red Sox claimed bronze. The final was 0-0 until Abby’s Geoff Dodson hit a three-run home run. Yard Dogs pitcher Travis Kunz said Dodson’s home run gave his team the momentum it needed. “It’s huge,” said Kunz.

“It lifts the morale, it lifts everything.” Dodson said Kunz is a “warhorse” after the pitcher’s efforts in the final. The three-hit shutout gave Abbotsford’s offence time to come around. “We were able to hit the ball when we needed to and make the plays when we needed to,” Dodson said. Red Sox player Craig

Snyder was chosen tournament MVP. The Wheatsheaf team and the Red Sox will be heading to Abbotsford in August for the Western Canadian Championships, which the Wheaties said has been their primary goal all along. “The next one’s going to be a good tournament, as well,” said Kunz. “A lot of good teams, just like this one.”

After three wins, then three losses, the Nanaimo Timbermen hope they’ve started another positive surge. The Coastal Windows Timbermen (6-6-1) defeated the Maple Ridge Burrards 12-9 on Saturday at Frank Crane Arena to keep pace in the Western Lacrosse A s s o c i at i o n’s p l ayo f f hunt. Most of the senior A lacrosse team’s home victories have been thrilling finishes, but this time, the T-men made sure there wasn’t any unnecessary drama, comfortably holding off the Burrards in the third period. “We executed a little bit better,” said Scott Ranger, T-men captain. “We beared down and got the goals when we needed them. Got the saves when we needed them, too.” Zak Boychuk got the win in a relief effort, stopping 23 of 25 shots, and Maple Ridge’s Drew Dickie kept the game closer than it could have been. “We should have outscored them by six-to-eight goals, really,” said Art Webster, T-men coach. Still, the offence scored enough to close out the game, which is what the coach asked them to do. “When we get that lead we’ve got to find a way to do that and we did,” he said. “We took care of the ball, we made better decisions.” It was a g ame the Timbermen felt like they needed after suffering a 14-12 overtime loss to the Burnaby Lakers on Friday night on the road. “We needed a good game to bounce back and it felt good to come up with a big win…” said Myles Kenny, T-men transition player. “Nobody wants to go on a losing streak because then everybody will start getting onto each other. So a big win was pretty huge towards the rest of our season.” Ranger, too, said the win will be an important one in the locker room. ◆ See ‘SENIOR’ /34

Inbrief B.C. Games can ignite lifelong sports passion golf

Nanaimo club hosts top talent

The Nanaimo Golf Club fairways and greens are playing host to 144 of the best senior men’s golfers in the province this week. The course is holding the B.C. Golf senior men’s championship, which started Monday and concludes Wednesday (July 18). Individual and zone titles will be determined at the tournament.

Young golfers invited to learn

B.C. Golf and the Eaglequest Golf Centre are offering a $10 golf lesson to try to attract youths to the fairways. The CN Future Links youth golf clinics are being held around the province this month. There is a clinic Thursday (July 19) from 12:45-2 p.m. at Eaglequest. Children aged 6-12 can participate. To register, visit www. britishcolumbiagolf.org/ cnfl.

YOUTH EVENT can sometimes lead to Olympics.

When the Olympic and Paralympic Games begin in London, there are a number of Canadian athletes who will remember their first multi-sport experience at a B.C. Games. Twenty-four athletes on the Canadian Olympic team started their journey to London with a trip to the B.C. Games including 2008 Olympic gold medallist Carol Huynh (wrestling), and recent Giro d’Italia winner Ryder Hesjedal (cycling). As part of the athlete development pathway, the B.C. Games are a first multisport experience for young athletes that lead towards provincial and national teams and ultimately the Olympic or Paralympic Games. The B.C. Games are part of a strong provincial sport system that provides an outstanding training environment and support services for high-performance athletes. Swimmer Brent Hayden of Mission is considered a medal contender in Lon-

don. Brent competed at the 1998 B.C. Summer Games. “[That] was the point in my career when I realized that I had the potential to go further…” he said. O ve r 2 , 3 0 0 at h l e t e s between the ages of 10 and 18 will be at this week’s Games, which kick off one week prior to the start of the Olympics.

It’s an inspiring experience, said Karina LeBlanc of Canada’s national women’s soccer team. “I did dream of one day being at the Olympic Games and it was the closest thing for me to it, so it made me want to be there that much more,” she said. Seventy-one athletes from Nanaimo, Lantzville,

Nanoose Bay and Cedar qualified to compete at the 2012 B.C.

Blaze burn Pirates

I

TOP TWO ball teams play rematches this Thursday (July 19).

The Langley Blaze got the upper hand in the pennant race, but the Nanaimo Pirates have another chance to cool down B.C.’s hottest baseball team. The Blaze swept the Pirates 4-2 and 10-5 on Sunday in B.C. Premier Baseball League action in Langley. The Pirates had chances for a better outcome, as they led both games. “We did make mistakes defensively and it cost us and against a good team like Langley it’ll cost you every time because they’ll capitalize,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. He said his players were upset to lose the games in Langley, but said they should be aware that they were in some good ball games. “They were what we needed at that time because we haven’t faced competition like that in a while,” he said. “We needed to

see that high level so we can raise our game, too.” In the first game at Langley, Colby Morgan suffered the loss on the mound, striking out five Blaze batters over six innings. Justin Clarkson was 3-for-3 and Griffin Andreychuk hit a single and a double. The second game Alex Rogers threw 4 1/3 innings in defeat, giving up three earned runs. Brendan McCarthy had a single, triple and two RBIs and Ben Dunbar had a single, double and two RBIs. The day before, the Pirates split a doubleader in Surrey against the Whalley Chiefs, winning 7-2 then losing 7-3. Luke Skingle picked up the win on the mound. Clarkson was 4-for-4 in that game and Dunbar and McCarthy were both 2-for-3. In the other game, Crosby Rushton took the ‘L’ on the mound and Braeden Mousseau had a hit and two walks. GAME ON … The Pirates host the Langley Blaze on Thursday (July 19) at noon and 2:30 p.m. at Serauxmen Stadium.

◆ From /32 “We’re a young team so if we’re losing that confidence, we’re fragile, and if we’re gaining confidence, like we did tonight, then we could be a dangerous team,” he said. Kenny was the game’s first star after scoring his first career hat trick and going 13-for-18 on faceoffs. Ranger also had a hat trick, Cayle Ratcliff had two goals and two assists and Kyle Hofer, Joel Henry and Kaleb Toth were the other scorers.

The night before in Burnaby, the T-men fell behind 8-1 in the first period but fought back and eventually took the lead before the Lakers scored with a minute and a half left to force OT. Ranger had four goals, Cody Bremner had a hat trick and Ryan Keith scored a pair. Sean Nugent, Ratcliff and Toth also tallied. GAME ON … The Timbermen visit the New Westminster Salmonbellies on Thursday (July 19). sports@nanaimobulletin.com

YOUR “NANAIMO MERCHANT FLEET” WELCOMES YOU

get in on all the action

Nanaimo Marine Festival & “Great” International World Championship Bathtub Race Nanaimo harbour was the scene of a bathtub race extravaganza at the first race in 1967 Canada’s 100 birthday and its Centennial year. As the City of Nanaimo’s “Centennial Event” that year, close to 200 tubbers (in every type of craft imaginable) entered the fun competition and amazingly, 47 completed the 36 mile course to Vancouver’s Fisherman’s Cove across the straits of Georgia. Now the “Great RACE” finishes at Departure Bay in Nanaimo covering a very grueling course that leaves Nanaimo harbour, circles Entrance Island and then up to and around Winchelsea Island and then back to Departure Bay in Nanaimo. In the early days it was indeed a challenge to just get past the starting line in the choppy confusion caused by an extra 785 small and large observation and escort boat in Nanaimo harbour. From the confusion of a first time bathtub race 45 years ago, the Nanaimo to Nanaimo “Great” INTERNATIONAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BATHTUB RACE & 4 day Nanaimo Marine Festival has evolved. Where once a select band of tubbers were the highlight they now share the spotlight with many other land and water events which are interesting and often spectacular to watch. The various events throughout the city in July culminate with the KICK OFF to the 2012 Marine

Festival on Thursday, July 19th with the opening of the LNBS Marine Festival Food Fair, Kiddies Harborside Playdock, Kiddies Karnival, “TIM HORTONS” Marine Festival Entertainment Stage and the children’s programs at Maffeo Sutton and Swy-a-lana Lagoon parks adjacent to the Nanaimo Harbour . Also for your enjoyment are the many informative static displays on boat safety, military, water sports plus many others all taking place until Sunday, July 22nd. Daily events in the city centre include the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association (DNBIA) city centre Bathtub Days on Friday and Saturday on Commercial street, and on July 21st at 10:30 AM the annual “Sail Past on Wheels Fun Parade” takes place through the Old City Quarter and the City Center. Followed by the Marine Festival Food Fair, the Kiddies Harbourside Playdock, TIM HORTONS Marine Festival Entertainment Stage, the Kiddies Karnival, along with many other static displays and the Loyal Order of the Moose Bavarian Garden held in Maffeo Sutton park and various events in the harbour. In the evening on Saturday Vancouver Islands premier fireworks display the spectacular “QUALITY FOODS” Festival of Lights & Music fireworks display takes place in the Nanaimo harbor at 10:00 PM. Then join the

thousands of excited spectators as the 46th annual “Great” INTERNATIONAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BATHTUB RACE starting at 11:00 AM sharp on the Sunday in Nanaimo harbour for the approximate 1 ½ hour challenge in the straits of Georgia to the “PEPSI FINISH LINE” at Departure Bay. After the tubs leave the excitement continues both on land and in the water with the Marine Festival Food Fair, the Kiddies Karnival, Harbourside Playdock, If you prefer (and remember you can do both) you can join us at the always spectacular “PEPSI FINISH LINE” at Departure Bay beach and watch the finish of the “Great” RACE and enjoy the many food and refreshment booths. Four full days of fun and activities for the young, old and inbetween, family oriented and held in NANAIMO, the Sun-Porch of Canada, the Jewel of the West and the Bathtub Racing Capital of the World, during the always (well almost always) sunny month of

July. So come join us July 19th to July 22nd, 2012 and take in the World’s Cleanest Sport, Bathtub Racing and the 46th annual “Great” INTERNATIONAL WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIP BATHTUB RACE & Nanaimo Marine Festival. Another bonus... most of the events and activities are FREE.
