Flipping the switch New energy manager finds funding efficiencies for recreation centres Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Ken Olson thinks of himself as “thrifty.” His saving ways are cutting costs and energy use in the recreation sector of Oak Bay and are set to expand beyond. “This (rec centre) could be a huge burden on the municipality,” he said, seated in the Sports View lounge at Oak Bay rec centre. “We try to be as high a ‘user-pay’ as we can.” As maintenance manager for 18 years, he delved into energy savings as a budget reduction technique and it came naturally. Projects like heat capture from the ice plant for reuse on site dates back to the late 1990s. About six months ago, Olson became the operations and energy coordinator for Recreation Oak Bay, funded in part through a B.C. Hydro grant. “Through his work now in that role, and his interaction with B.C. Hydro, the suggestion is that we would conduct another energy study to determine what other opportunities there are in the district to save money,” said Ray Herman, director of parks and recreation. “We’re going to be able to fund it from rebate incentives B.C. Hydro is providing through some of the projects that we’ll be completing this year.” Since a 2009 energy study, Recreation Oak Bay has installed an ultraviolet system in the pool, replaced lighting in all buildings, replaced boilers at Henderson and Monterey rec centres and just last week, new motion sensor lights went in at the arena and indoor sports field.

Looking in a new direction Brian Pavlicic, left, and Niki Powers study the cairn on top of Gonzales lookout last week. The duo were out enjoying the long awaited sunshine and checking out the viewpoints.

Online game helps house homeless monks Victoria-based Facebook connections help rebuild Himalayan monastery Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Facebook connections are rebuilding a home for boy monks in Bhutan, thanks to a pair of Oak Bay women and a Victoria gaming company. The earthquake relief started well before the shaker, though Chris Hoyer and Carla Funk, both of Oak Bay, didn’t know it at the time. They were on a photographic journey to the remote Himalayan country in 2008. “We had a wonderful time and the people are so friendly,” Hoyer said. Last September, 32 boy monks, many of whom the tour group had snapped photos, were left homeless after the 300-year-old Chetokha monastery where they lived was damaged in an earthquake. “This is a great example of how versatile online fundraising can be,” said Funk. “The contributing photographers live across Canada and the U.S., yet were able to upload their photos for sale to the website. The photographs are paid for online, sent digitally to printers in the U.S., and then Submitted photos posted directly to the customer. We spread (Right) Chris Hoyer, left, and Carla Funk the word through our email and Facebook connections.

Property tax will rise to fund regional sewage upgrades Federal and provincial governments pledge $500 million towards wastewater management facilities Daniel Palmer News staff

Greater Victoria homeowners are bracing for an extra $200 to $500 on their annual property tax bills, now that the federal and provincial governments have committed their share of the $782-million cost of building sewage treatment infrastructure. Residents in the seven invested municipalities of Victoria, Saanich, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, Lang-

ford, View Royal and Colwood will have to absorb the tax hikes until the project is completed in 2018, said Denise Blackwell, chair of the Capital Regional District’s liquid waste management committee. “Lots of people know that this is something that’s been a long time coming and is probably overdue,” she said. “We still have some people who think dilution is the solution, but we’ve been ordered by the provincial govern-

ment to do it. I believe later this “Fundamentally, it’s time for us week, the federal government is to treat our sewage,” said Victoannouncing the new regulations ria Mayor Dean Fortin. “We just that will mean we have to do it cannot continue to dump our anyway.” sewage into the The CRD needs “This is a quarter ocean.” to contribute $281 James Moore, million – approxi- of a billion dollars to federal minister mately one-third end dumping of sewage responsible for of the total cost – Columbia, into the waters around British of the Core Area was on hand MonWastewater Treat- Victoria.” day to announce ment Program, the federal fund- James Moore which includes ing portion.

he said, adding he expects to see work begin “later this year.” The next step for the CRD will be hiring a project manager to oversee the work and to create a bylaw to establish a management committee. The CRD will then receive requests for proposal from various contractors before breaking ground on the project, which is expected to create 10,000 person-years of labour. “I think shovels in the ground at the end of this year is probably a bit optimistic, but beginning of next year for sure,” Blackwell said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Construction count down Broadcaster Ida Clarkson dies at 85 The Greater Victoria School District is officially on the voyage to replace Oak Bay High. On July 12, the district issued a request for qualifications for teams to submit comprehensive proposals for the new facilities. “The new high school and Neighbourhood Learning Centre will serve the education, cultural and recreation needs of the people of Oak Bay for most of the 21st century,” said Peg Orcherton, board chair. “I am pleased that all of the necessary funding for the project is now in place, and we are moving forward with design and construction.” Oak Bay is contributing $1 million towards the cost of the performing arts centre to be integrated with the new high school. “This project is an example of what can be achieved by working together to serve the needs of our community,” said Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen. “We are committed to helping the school district develop the best possible facilities for the people of Oak Bay.” The deadline is Aug. 15. The school district anticipates selecting a proposal in early spring 2013 with construction starting that summer. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

OUR VIEW

Victoria braces for the big flush W

hen the province and federal governments fork over $500 million, most cities would celebrate the economic benefits from a fresh influx of capital. For Greater Victoria, the announcement Monday that Ottawa will fund a $253-million share of building a $783-million regional sewage treatment system felt more like a day of reckoning. The region’s sewer system users – Victoria, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, Saanich, View Royal, Colwood and Langford – now have to figure out how to extract its share of cash from residents and councils, both which are loathe to increase property taxes. Raising $281 million for the construction phase isn’t pocket change. That’s $200 to $500 per household each year until the McLoughlin wastewater treatment plant, a biosolids treatment plant and improvements to sewage infrastructure are complete. Operating costs are estimated at $14 million per year after that. For Victoria residents, it will be interesting to see what the final price tag is for the Blue Bridge. For regional rapid transit, the E&N line is suddenly looking a lot more attractive. After six years and $18 million spent in sewer treatment planning and studies, the region knew this day would come, but decisions on how to divide costs among sewered municipalities and how to raise those funds in the first place have remained on the backburner as a political hot potato nobody. As dismal as it is to – finally – start paying a fat new tax to wring clean the city’s effluent, a few positives can be flushed out, beyond not flushing waste directly into the ocean. The region has the opportunity from the get-go to employ technologies that extract heat (and therefore energy) from sewage, much like has been done in a number of European cities for decades. Maximizing resource recovery should be a requirement of the tendering process and not an add-on when the system is done. Recouping costs and easing the taxpayer burden should be priority No. 1. Sewage treatment, too, is an opportunity to overhaul aging sewer lines in Victoria, Oak Bay and Saanich, some of which have been in service for more than 100 years. During heavy rains, these ancient pipes can overflow into stormwater lines (called inflow and infiltration) and flush into shallow coastal waters. The region’s largest infrastructure project in its history has arrived. Start saving your pennies.

I made it to the top of Mount Washington on Sunday along with my team – and we were all elated – but I barely remember the ride. What’s stayed with me, instead, were the emotions I felt. I remember a few periodic moments of dread, when I looked up the road and saw steep, endless asphalt. And I remember the pride I felt – the smile plastered to my face – when I pulled in to the ski lodge, sweaty and panting, after conquering Mount Washington. Those emotion-filled memories, on both ends of the spectrum, are what I will take away from my experience as a Tour de Rock rider – it won’t be the Vancouver Island scenery or the six-hour rides along rolling Island roads.

LETTERS

Pets provide love I feel that I need to give input re: Pet pollution a nuisance, Oak Bay News, June 13. It upsets me that here in English Canada in Victoria dogs are not popular. Being British I grew up being told that the English prefer their dogs over their spouses. It is related to feeling unconditionally loved. Lock, stock and barrel. I grew up with this humourous sense. Regarding pollution, are not cigarette butts more visible? It disgusts me, particularly around bus

stops all around the City of Victoria. Did you know having a pet meets the strong need for (particularly seniors) touching and stroking as they miss the touching that comes with youth? Victoria appears so sterile that pets are not allowed in apartments, as they are in Ontario. Not all of us seek consultation at the pub or seek love at the church and the two-minute friendships that are so prevalent in today’s world. Audrey Holmes Oak Bay

Dogs must still obey Re: Pet pollution a nuisance, Oak Bay News, June 13. I read with interest the letter from Mr. Sirois regarding the possible increase of dog pollution if the municipality opens up McNeill Bay to increased dog access. First, I would like to say I agree with the writer that dedicated dog parks are much needed in the municipality and elsewhere, as there has been an increase of dog ownership over the past few years. However, the reality is that in Oak Bay in particular, there is no land available for this purpose. As one of the coauthors of the

Dog Management Report 2012 that was submitted to Oak Bay council, we felt the best option was to allow an increase in access to McNeill Bay, which council unanimously endorsed. Dog-friendly does not mean that dogs are free to violate the animal bylaws but rather it means that Oak Bay is set up in a way that dogs can coexist easily in the community with benefits and services, without detrimental effects to non-dog owners or public spaces. Christine Ash Oak Bay

Regulations are not properly enforced Re: Pet pollution a nuisance, Oak Bay News, June 13. I want to thank the writer of this letter to the editor. As a long-time resident who lives and works within a block of this rugged, yet beautiful, small bay, I too, was both stunned and deeply disappointed that our Oak Bay council has yet again, decided in favour of the ardent dog owners’ persistent demands to have more and more access for their pets on our beaches and in our parks. I believe that the former ‘dogs allowed on beach’ hours were very fair and a compromise we could all accept. Dogs allowed on McNeill Bay; sunrise to 11 a.m. and evenings until sunset. I was so relieved to know I could take my book and blanket down to McNeill Bay during mid-day hours and enjoy a peaceful time at such a lovely spot. During the dogs-on-beach times, in the past I have been trampled by wet, exuberant, untrained dogs more than once. The dog owners are invariably far down the beach, calling or whistling to their dog, to no avail. Too often while searching for ‘angel glass’ on the beach, I have unearthed dog excrement. I want my grandchildren to be able to safely play in the sand at McNeill Bay without dog excrement on their hands and feet. Is this too much

to ask of our Oak Bay council and mayor? Please, Oak Bay council and Mayor Jensen, in your efforts to appease and please dog owners, remember you are charged with the responsibility to also represent those of us who contribute to our community and simply believe we have a right to peaceful periods of time at McNeill Bay. When else can we enjoy the beautiful varied species of birds and their songs? I know there are many responsible dog owners in our neighbourhood. I want to thank each one of you for picking up after your pet, keeping them on leash where requested, (Anderson Park during bird nesting season, April 1 to June 30) and for realizing that while your dog’s bark may be music to your ears, it is not thoughtful or considerate of others. I agree with the letter writer that current dog regulations and bylaws are routinely ignored and never enforced. Please do so and move to protect our McNeill Bay jewel from further degradation and devastation of its fragile ecosystem and the species of wildlife that are drawn to it, that is, when they are safe from being chased away by dogs on the beach. Sharon Fairchild Oak Bay

Parks are for pets It was puzzling to open the Oak Bay News on June 13 to find a anti-animal editorial diatribe, along with a dog-rejecting letter from a reader. Taking a swipe at those who oppose a deer cull, and urging dog guardians to leave their canine friends at home, the editorial says: “We must remember that as humans we are the superior species, and as such we must make decisions based on what is best for us, even if that means our four-legged friends miss the picnic.” That humans are superior is debatable; to say that excluding animals from our surroundings is “best for us” is nonsensical. Best for which of us? Not those who enjoy the company of pets, or who take pleasure in local wildlife like deer. As for the idea that dogs shouldn’t be able to enjoy McNeill Bay because seabirds and mammals live there: I have lived off and on for decades near McNeill Bay and have yet to see a dog catch a seal, gull or goose. I don’t have a dog, but one pleasure of walking on our beaches is to watch the array of ecstatic dogs at play. In a world where the cost of everything is going up, that is one entertainment that all can enjoy for free – unless someone takes it away. What is this “dog pollution” the letterwriter refers to? The only pollution in Oak Bay comes from over development, architectural uglification and pavement-creep. Since the present municipal council seems determined to eradicate the private garden, where are people supposed to play with their dogs, if not at parks and beaches? S.B. Julian Oak Bay

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Once you have your prescription for eyeglass lenses there are a number of decisions you must make. Perhaps one of the most important is whether to have your corrective lenses made out of glass or plastic. Today, in Canada, most spectacle lenses are made of plastic. Plastic lenses have improved so much over the last 20 years, that plastic has become the lens material of choice. If glass lenses are chosen it is imperative to get shatter resistant lenses. There is no such thing as shatter-proof glass. So, for occupations that require safety eyewear, glass is not acceptable. Plastic lenses can absorb much more punishment. Some plastic materials are extremely safe and therefore afford good protection in certain high risk occupations. Both glass and plastic can be made in â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinâ&#x20AC;? or high index materials which are more practical for strong prescriptions. Because plastic is softer than glass, there is a misconception that plastic lenses will scratch easily. This does not have to be the case provided proper care is taken. Elaborate cleaning measures are not necessary, just simple common sense precautions. Plastic lenses will not become scratched from normal use; they get scratched when exposed to abrasives. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scratch coatings make plastic lens surfaces very durable. Ask your Optometrist about the different types of lens materials available for your prescription.

OAK BAY NEWS - Wednesday, July 18, 2012

One a lonely number for wolf pack Wolf on Discovery Island likely to leave on its own Brittany Lee News staff

A lone wolf is living on an island near Oak Bay. Campers on Discovery Island first reported a stray or abandoned animal to conservation officers in early May, and it was confirmed that the animal was a wolf late last week. While it’s not known where exactly the wolf came from, the hope is that it will leave the island on its own, said conservation officer Peter Pauwels. “We’ve been trying to decide whether this is something we need to remove or not,” Pauwels said. “At this point, we’d rather not see the wolf get harmed and let it leave on its own.” Getting the wolf off of the island would involve trapping it, and that could be very difficult, he added. A trap was placed on the island along with water and food. However, it will not be set unless there’s evidence the wolf is willing to access the bait. A parks maintenance officer will check on the trap every day, Pauwels said. The conservation officer says it’s unusual for a wolf to leave its pack and travel alone. The closest area the wolf may have come from is Sooke or Shawnigan Lake, Pauwels said, noting that there are a number of different routes it could have

swam from. Water and food for the wolf is scarce – there are no deer, racoons or squirrels on the island, but there is access to seals, fish, crabs and geese. The wolf will most likely leave on its own, Pauwels said, because it is a social creature and will, at some point, seek companionship of other wolves. “Under all the circumstances, it’s not a place it’s going to want to stay long term, for sure. I’m surprised it’s been there, stayed there, as long as it has.” When and if the wolf decides to leave the island, its shortest swim would be to Cattle Point or Ten Mile Point, but there’s no knowing where the wolf may show up, Pauwels said. Once the wolf reaches land, conservation officers would have “zero chance” of locating it, he added, because it would most likely continue running until it reaches a comfortable habitat. “It’s not going to be comfortable (in Oak Bay) either but it’s got a long way to go before it gets out of civilization,” Pauwels said. Campers have reported seeing the wolf near the campsite, but so far not in the actual camping area. “It still seems to be very leery of people and it’s not getting close,” Pauwels said. People are advised to keep the campsite clean and store food in containers. However, he added, the wolf has not been approaching humans, so people should not be worried at this point. If campers do come across

the wolf, Pauwels said, don’t approach it and give it lots of space. An Oak Bay cub scout leader, who was on Discovery Island June 23 to 24, was surprised to learn that there is, in fact, a wolf on the island. Randy Stewart was camping there for the first time when he came across what he believed were paw prints and scat belonging to a wolf. Stewart was with about 20 cub scouts and a handful of adults. He left the group for an early morning walk on the morning of June 24 and said he was puzzled by what he saw. “I saw the scat in two different places on the trail. … I saw it in the grass. It looked like some large animal had been sleeping on the grass, and I was really puzzled,” he recalled. “In this lower marshy area (by the Discovery Island sign) … I saw these footprints in the mud, and to me they looked like dog or wolf.” Had Stewart known what he witnessed was evidence of a wolf, he would have been worried about being in the area, he said. “I look at it now and I think ‘God, I was out there by myself,’ and you just never know with wild animals,” he said. “Certainly, with the kids there, I think all of us, if we had known there was a wolf on the island, we would have not been too comfortable with that.” To report sightings of the wolf, call the conservation centre at 1-800-663-9453. reporter@vicnews.com

he linked up with fellow Stelly’s secondary alumnus Seth Finlayson, a University of Victoria business school grad. They created a niche business model that Coste saw could help him achieve his goal. Except he couldn’t do it alone. Before long, Coste asked Finlayson to become a partner in the business. The mix also includes tile design specialist, Melissa Stuart, who works out of the company’s newly opened retail storefront/warehouse location on Cadillac Avenue in Saanich. She works with customers on materials preferences and helps determine the sample mix to be loaded into the mobile showroom. “We’re streamlining the entire process for the professional customer, and for the end consumer, it’s about taking less time,” Finlayson says. “The biggest thing is the fact it makes the process just way less of a pain, and the fact we’re coming with only the products that are appropriate to the job.” Mobile Tile contracts out most installations to one local company, but Coste likes to do the odd job to keep his skills sharp. “I’m transitioning (into a consulting role), but it’s still nice to get the tools in your hands once in a while.” Visit mobiletile.com, to provide job details, or book an appointment, call 250590-5920, or email info@ mobiletile.com. The store is located at #1-17 Cadillac Ave.

Despite being just 28 years old, floor and wall tiling expert Matt Coste has plenty of stories about customers’ unsatisfying project experiences. He’s seen people try to estimate themselves how much material they need and wind up with either loads left over or not enough to complete the work. He’s seen Don Descoteau clients spend Biz Beat hours running back and forth with store samples, never quite convinced they’ve found what they want or chosen the right material for the job. And he’s seen people frustrated with having to deal with two, and sometimes three different people on a job. He figured there had to be a way to provide an all-in-one service to clients that made it easy for them to move forward on a job and see it completed in a timely fashion. Mobile Tile by Madico – with its signature samples trailer – is proving to be just such a vehicle for Coste, who is out to eliminate what he sees as inefficiencies in the tile business. The mobile concept is what he hopes will set his company apart. Rather than rely solely on a retail store in a highly competitive Greater Victoria market, he and his team bring pre-selected samples, design expertise, product knowledge and the ability to schedule installation to residential and commercial customers. “I found I was getting more involved in the decisionmaking process, and getting more comfortable with (the design element),” Coste says. “And people said it would be great if I could get the tile and have the installation done by the same company.” After installing for a handful of years, Coste started his own company, Madico Tile, in 2008. Last year, as he looked at ways to grow his business,

Sharon Mahoney admits that convincing some of the world’s top buskers to hit Victoria last year was a big risk, professionally and personally. Victoria, a known tourist town, wasn’t a significant draw for the international street performer circuit. But local artist John Vickers was aiming to reenergize the downtown with a high-calibre busker festival, and Mahoney was key. The Victoria-based performer has toured the world in her quirky red tracksuit as the passive-aggressive “Sharon from Canada” and her alter ego, the outright aggressive Miss Tallulah. Mahoney had the connections, but convincing performers to attend an untested festival required a leap of faith. “Some top street performers really took a risk; I begged friends of mine to take a risk,” said Mahoney, the artistic director for the Victoria International Buskers Festival, now approaching its second year. “The presPhoto courtesy of the Victoria International Busker Festival sure was there.

Reynolds golfer tops in B.C. Future Vike wins junior title Travis Paterson News staff

Golfer Matthew Broughton shot three-under par on Thursday, and two-under par on Friday to win the B.C. Junior Boys Championship.

Grizzlies’ NHL alumni come aboard

Saanich’s Matthew Broughton proved it’s more important to stay in the hunt then to go all-in from the start. Broughton shot two-under par on Friday, to win the four-day-long B.C. Junior Boys Championship at Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club in Roberts Creek. Not too shabby of a day for the 18-year-old Reynolds secondary grad, who is headed to the UVic Vikes golf team this fall. Though Broughton lifted the Gordon Bowers Trophy as champion, it wasn’t until the 18th hole that he knew he’d be able to stave off Kevin Ko (second) and Team Canada’s Kevin Kwon (fourth), who he was paired with. “It was my first time being around the lead on the final day,” Broughton said. “You don’t really think about who you’re playing with or what shot lead he has. “I did my best not to look at the (scores) being carried around (Friday). I knew the lead was changing back and forth,” Broughton said.

Last year Broughton was 15th at the same tournament, and the last time he won a tournament was a Zone 5 (Victoria and Duncan area) tourney in 2011. Friday started with leader Kwon, of Pitt Meadows, at six-under par, three strokes better than Broughton. But Kwon collapsed, shooting eight bogeys, which hurt dragged him back to fourth place overall. Broughton, meanwhile, was the model of consistency, one of three of the 154 entrants to shoot even-par, 72, on each of the first two days. Broughton turned it on with a three-under, 69, on Thursday and 70 on Friday, to win with a total score of 72-72-69-70, 283, five-under par. The top three finishers, Broughton, and 16-yearolds Ko (second) and Chris Crisologo (third), make up Team B.C., which will compete at the Canadian Junior Boys’ Championship in Bridgewater, N.S., July 31 to Aug. 3. Victoria’s Jake Duvall (sixth), Connor Gann (13th) and Darren Day (18th) also qualified for the Canadian championships. Naomi Ko was the top Victoria finisher in the junior girls championship held at the Osoyoos Golf and Country Club. Ko was eighth overall, 11-over, just ahead of 11th place Hayley Kruse. sports@vicnews.com

Well played move, Bill Bestwick. The newly hired general manager and head coach of the Victoria Grizzlies is behind the B.C. Hockey League team’s new Alumni Advisory Board, consisting of former player Ryan O’Byrne of the 2001-02 Salsa and former coach Geoff Courtnall of the 2008-09 Grizz. Along with hiring Craig Didmon and acquiring a handful of players, the Alumni Advisory Board is the first significant big-picture move of Bestwick’s tenure. The board’s creation signifies a change in culture around the Grizzlies under new majority owner Ron Walchuk, who recently took over that role from Len Barrie. With the presence of O’Byrne and Courtnall, albeit intermittent and mostly for advisory purposes, the Grizzlies become a more attractive destination for talented hockey players wishing to play in the NCAA, Bestwick said in the team’s release. “It is wonderful to have people like Geoff and Ryan who want to give back to the sport that has given them so much,” added Bestwick. “The Grizzlies have helped so many local athletes move on to the NCAA and the WHL, and ultimately the NHL, and it will be great for the team and the community to have these players back involved in junior hockey here.” O’Byrne, a top-six defenceman with the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, also played in the BCHL with the Nanaimo Clippers under Bestwick in 2003, before playing three years at Cornell University. Courtnall, a veteran of 17 years in the NHL, oversaw the development of his son Justin (Boston University Terriers) and many other Grizzlies currently in the NCAA who played on the 2008-09 team which hosted the RBC Cup. The board will advise the GM and ownership group with a focus on hockey operations and the development model for players to reach their educational and hockey career goals. sports@vicnews.com

Eagles on the fly First Nations soccer team at Indigenous Soccer Cup Travis Paterson News staff

With flights paid for and hotel rooms booked, the Golden Eagles soccer club touched down in Albuquerque, N.M., on Monday for the 2012 Indigenous Soccer Cup. Enterprising coach Charlotte Charlie leads the co-ed team, which is made up of players 19-and-under from Alert Bay, Village Island, Saanich, Songhees and Cowichan First Nations. In recent months Charlie, of Victoria, has championed the team, and what it stands for, in a campaign to fundraise $17,500. That’s the total cost for the Golden Eagles to play in this week’s Indigenous Cup, July 16 to 22. The team came so close; players are left owing between $50 to $70 each for the remaining costs of the hotel and food. “The team worked hard at fundraising and promoting their goal. We hit walls left, right and centre along the way due to the fact that we are a new team,” Charlie said. As of last Thursday the team was just $3,250 shy of that goal, when a final fundraiser, a two-day silent auction with lunches and dinners

at the Tsawout band office, pulled in an additional $1,340. A bottle drive on Saturday raised another $614, bring them within $1,500 of the original target. “The hotels are 90 per cent paid for, and the food is mostly paid for. Now we can focus on playing,” Charlie said. Charlie uses the team to promote health and wellness among First Nations youth, while encouraging leadership and education. Charlie, a former a student facilitator at Esquimalt High, volunteers her own time to do group or individual tutoring to help the players work towards college and university. “I anticipate we’ll make it to the finals. We’re a pretty good team. Teams from B.C. always come away with high expectations, and have won gold there before.” Because it’s Charlie’s and the team’s first time to the Cup, she brought in a variety of voices to speak about what lies ahead. Some soccer experts spoke of the differing playing styles to expect from Central American teams, while others who have been there before, spoke of what to expect day in and day out. The Golden Eagles are continuing to fundraise and will continue playing when they return. To donate contact Charlie at 250-217-2416, or char_charlie@hotmail.com. sports@vicnews.com
